Yes the Klan still exists

A question was posed to me a while ago when the media was running around making a big case about “racism, Trump, and the Klan.”

“Jason, do you think the Klan still exists?”

“Of course they do.  They even come out and make statements quite often,” I answered.

In 2010 a white man was “impressed”  that a certain black man was “light-skinned” and spoke with “no Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one.”

Also in 2010 a white woman called a  “former member” of the KKK a “friend and mentor.”

In an incredibly bizarre twist, also in 2010, a black man called a recruiter for the Klan “a fierce protector of the US Constitution.”

The name of the white man who was “impressed” with a black man’s “light skin” and able to speak without “Negro dialect unless he wanted to have one,” was none other than Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.  DEMOCRAT.

The name of the white woman who called a member of the KKK a “friend and mentor” was none other than Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. DEMOCRAT.

Hillary would have been a wonderful Nazi as she also adored Margaret Sanger who, if she could have, would have sterilized every person she deemed “unfit” in America.

The name of the black man who called a recruiter for the Klan “a fierce protector of the US Constitution,” was none other than the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama.  DEMOCRAT.

Yes the Klan does exist these days but they aren’t running around in hoods burning crosses.

They are running the Democratic Party.

Of course Progressive bigotry isn’t just a Klan thing.

In 2015 a “Latino” male threatened on television to put in place a “militancy that will be activated throughout the immigrant community.”

This threat was made in case legal deportations were made.  In other words the enforcement of the law.

Militant means “engaged in warfare or combat.”

His name is Luis Gutierrez.  Congressman from Illinois.  Democrat.

In 2012 a black woman stood on a stage, and knowingly being filmed, stated Sharia Law was compatible with the United States Constitution.  That same woman also made it a point to mention another woman (Hispanic) who agreed and was also in attendance that day.

The woman who made the statement was Congresswoman Maxine Waters from California.  Democrat.

The woman who agreed and was in attendance was Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez from California.  Democrat.

Due to a media that will not cover the truth most Americans have no idea what Sharia Law is or to what it pertains.

Sharia Law or Islamic Law is the “law of the land” in countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A blind man can see the United States Constitution is not “compatible” with these oppressive nations.

To put it bluntly women are property under Sharia Law and can be beaten, raped, and even killed…legally.

Homosexuality is a crime under Sharia and punishable by death.

There is a War on Women.

It’s happening in the misogynist and homophobic Middle East, with approval in 2014 from a white woman, who reportedly told many members of the press, that “Hamas is a humanitarian organization.”

Hamas is of course a Sunni Muslim terrorist organization that also accepts money from Shiite Iran and practices…Sharia.

This woman goes by the title former Speaker of the House.  Two clicks away in the Presidential ascension.

Her name is Nancy Pelosi.  Democrat.

Now some of you may not be familiar with Hamas.  As stated earlier they are an Islamic terrorist organization that hates Israel and The United States.

They also run the Palestinian Authority.  The same Palestinian Authority that continues to fire rockets into Israel with money from Iran.

The same Iran, Barack Obama, just gave over one BILLION dollars to.

Well not exactly dollars.  Obama helicoptered in different currencies to the Ayatollah where, according to John Kerry’s own words, “those funds could be used for terrorism.”

John Kerry Secretary of State.  Democrat.

Truly stunning.  The usage of propaganda, money, and lies to murder, rape, pillage, and create terror in other humans, specifically those that follow Judaism or as a black man would say “hymie town”.

The man who made that comment was “Reverend” Jesse Jackson.  Democrat.

Of course he isn’t alone.  In 2015 another black man called for the killing of humans with pale faces.

While college students screamed and threw tantrums about “micro aggressions” and Obama said he “understood” when cops were targeted and murdered, nothing was said about the aforementioned man who called for ten thousand black Americans to take to the streets to kill the white man.

That man is named Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, and he said these things in a church, not a mosque, where he reportedly received a standing ovation.

Calling for the militancy and the outright murder of others because they don’t look like you or because they are Semitic.

Kind of like…the KKK.

Well not kind of like.

Exactly like the Ku Klux Klan.

The Klan is still around and going strong.  It just comes in all colors now.

It’s found on the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor and as an appointee to HUD (Julian Castro).  Democrats.

Both supporters of La Raza.  Just in case some don’t know what La Raza means.  It means “the Race”.

Pray tell what “race” are these bigots referring to?

I could go on and on with the bigotry coming from the Klan err Democratic Party but let us be honest with each other.

You don’t need me to.

We all know we have very real problems in America.

What’s that?

One more example of diversity in the new Klan?

Okay.

A black man stated recently that if blacks don’t vote for Hillary it would be “disrespectful” as it would ruin a legacy.

Basically if you are black and don’t vote for Hillary you are an Uncle Tom.

The name of the hateful bigot who said this.

Barack Hussein Obama. Democrat.

He is half right.

A vote for Hillary won’t ruin a legacy.

It will ruin a country.

We need a bigger basket

Sadly we keep hearing the same two things over and over from the politicians, radio talk show squawkers, television talking heads and of course the incredible intelligentsia known as the American Media.

(1) America is a Democracy.

(2) Taking a knee or saying something stupid is a Constitutional Right.

No and NO.

The United States is a Constitutional Republic.  Don’t take my word for it.

Look it up.

Of course many, who believe this to not be true won’t, so I will simplify.

We have a Constitution.  Maybe you’ve heard of it.  It’s that thing many scream about when you feel one bathroom isn’t enough or somebody just hit you with a micro aggression.

For the record “micro aggressions” have been around for a while.

We call it whining.

Furthermore each State (we have 50 of them Barry) via Article 4 Section 4, is required to have a Republican form of government.

Hence a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

I can hear the Liberals heads popping like the swollen ticks that they are, as the truth squeezes them into an uncomfortable place that those of us who work hard, save our money and are beneficial to others like to call…reality.

Oh Jason you know nothing.

Of course I don’t.

You’re right as always Lucy Liberal.

By the way I love what you’ve done with the place!

Record highs on Food Stamps, probably over 100 million not in the workforce, violent crime rising in virtually every major city in America and historic debt piling up, while human trafficking soars.

Gang banging thugs are killing blacks, whites, browns, and cops everyday.

Look out Progressives.  “Dog whistles” galore.

I thought Bush was a train wreck but then came Obama.

Putting a Community Organizer in charge of our nation has been great!

Well done!

America is looking more and more like Chicago everyday!

Failing schools, murder rates soaring, lying politicians, striking unions, and soon to be bankrupt cities begging for a bailout.

Emanuel Obama strikes again!

While this is all increasingly getting worse your new criminal, err candidate, says you guys want to give us “four more years” of the same.

Well slap my backside and call me “uneducated” but us Deplorables, would rather have a BILLIONAIRE take a shot, than continue with those who go begging on their knees to millionaires and billionaires, bowing to Kings, flying around with pedophiles and fomenting terrorism with our own money.

In fact we’d like to invite all of you Obama and Shiite supporters to visit Iran.

Upon your arrival please remember “real American leaders do not negotiate with terrorists”.

Hopefully you will have taken Streisand, Dunham, and a Kaepernick with you. I’m sure they will all love living under Sharia.

There, Colon can use both knees while he kisses the ground.

Good luck with your “humor” Lena.  I doubt the Shiite will find you funny.  We may have found something I can agree on with Iran.

Oh and dear dear Barbara.  The Muslims are going to LOVE you.

I digress.

It truly is stunning to listen to a wide variety of Americans, even Republicans, say something like “well that is Democracy for ya.”

Well if we are a Democracy then why are you calling yourselves Republicans?

Bueller?  Bueller?  Anyone? Anyone?

In conclusion please say it with me silly Liberals.

We are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.  Protection of the rights of the Individual through the rule of law.

You’d best learn quickly to stop tearing it down.

It is the only thing protecting you.

Moving on to Item (2)

Taking a knee or saying something stupid is not and has never been a “Constitutional Right”.

It’s called Free Will.

Freedom of Speech has nothing to do with being a bona fide moron.  It has nothing to do with the NFL or any other private entity.

The 1st Amendment protects (among other things) our right to speak truth to power freely without fear of persecution or prosecution from any form of GOVERNMENT.

Of course in this day and age both fear of persecution and prosecution are very real if you don’t agree with the Obama Administration.

Not convinced?

Why did Lois Lerner (IRS) admit her crime (targeting American Citizens), apologize and then take the 5th?

Quiet down Polly Progressive.

The “Deplorables”  (Adults) are talking now.

Let us switch gears and focus on Free Will.  Free Will and Freedom are two dramatically different things.

Target or Tarjay decided a while ago to get involved in the “he go, she go, we go” bathroom episode.

So many jokes here.

Apparently millions of Americans didn’t like this and Tarjay’s sales numbers were off dramatically in their last reporting.

Coincidentally a recent article discussed how WalMart was back on track taking share away from its competitors.

Now I have no idea what WalMart’s lavatory situation is (and I don’t want to know) and I am guessing millions of Americans don’t either.

I guess WalMart decided they’d just focus on what ol Sam founded the business on.

Cheap prices.

Not his and hers toilet seat covers.

Then again I’m sure WalMart sent some money to Hillary too.

Maybe someone should tell the AFL/CIO.

Speaking of a place that needs “organizing” The CEO of Starbucks decided he wanted to join the America bashing too.

Howard Schultz proclaimed that if you have conservative values (you know he’s upset he didn’t use deplorable first) Starbucks doesn’t want your money.

I’m sure the stockholders loved that one.

Starbucks fascinates me and is the perfect example of why too many Americans won’t have any money as they age.  It is also an example of inflation and probably price gouging but hey as long as everybody is cranked up on caffeine and 500 different flavorings “it’s all good bro”.

You know it home slice.  Ax me no questions I’s tells youse no lies.

Then again maybe you should tell that to your kidneys, liver and your heart while you swallow your Type-Two diabetes medications.

“Just sayin.”

By the way I abhor that “sayin”.

If you are going to say something stand behind it.  Don’t weasel out with “just sayin.”

Let us refocus.

I know multiple people who consume Starbucks items almost daily that no longer open their wallets.

I’m sure Peet’s and Dutch Bros are gaining ground out here in California and I’ll bet Dunkin Donuts is doing well on the East Coast.

I myself have purchased many gift cards for others over the years from Starbucks.

Not anymore Schultz, and I’m not even a Conservative.

I’m an AMERICAN.

Maybe you’ve heard of us.  We make up the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, Fire, and the Private Sector that funds the world’s largest economy.

Yea the one that has created so much wealth you can charge five bucks for a cup of joe and enough sugar to put a horse into a coma.

While you run around  supporting Obamacare your products are causing more citizens to die from heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes.

No I don’t want six pumps of chocolate in my mocha.  My health insurance premiums are already too high, but hey, great job!

As Pocahontas would say “you sure did build it.”

Can I get a defibrillator with my pumpkin spice latte Howie?

How about a body bag for all the Citizens your product is killing through obesity related diseases?  Maybe you should have a chat with your Progressive partner Bloomberg.  I’m sure he’d love to put a size limit on your ability to sling legal crack.

Of course he would.

Mikey likes it!

Listen up you two clowns.

Starbucks products kill more Americans than guns ever will yet we don’t need to outlaw guns, coffee or sugar.

We need to outlaw the narcissism, greed and ego-centrism known as the Liberal.

Fortunately we are a Constitutional Republic.

We are legally protected from the days of having to kneel to putrid souls like yourselves, but even if we weren’t, Free Will would keep us from it.

At least those of us in the basket.

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.”

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”

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.

Affordable for who?

As insurance companies continue to drop the fraud placed upon the American Taxpayer known as the “Unaffordable Care Act” there are still voices clamoring for more “government” control.

It would be comical if not so disconcerting to listen to someone rant about their “right” to medical “care” while proclaiming it should cost them nothing.

It’s almost as bad as being lead by politicians who boldly state “we have to pass it to find out what is in it.”

Or…

“Americans are too stupid so we have to lie to them to get this through”.

“The “Affordable Care Act will cover the 40 million uninsured.”

Never covered more than 12 million and even that is debatable as these numbers came from the government.

We were promised the ACA would not be available to humans here illegally.

Another lie as California has been offering it along with drivers licenses.

Of course there was the Obama claim that “you can keep your plan, doctor, etc., and everyone would save money.”

With all of this information available to everyone there are still millions voting for Clinton and Sanders who either want to keep a system that was built on lies or expand it to completely get rid of choice and give everyone “universal coverage”.

This from a man kicked out of a commune because he wouldn’t do his “fair share” of the daily work required to feed everyone.

Seriously though what do you expect?

The guy responsible for this monstrous lie was part of the Choom Gang and bragged about doing cocaine.

He also thinks Islam is woven into the fabric of our country and Michael Brown was a hero.

The woman who would like to keep this monstrous lie apparently does not understand what “Top Secret” means or that her “husband” is probably still cheating on her.

She also stared into the face of the parents of the four killed in Benghazi and told them it was about a video when she knew it wasn’t.

Finally we are left with a Democratic Socialist who thinks he can read a woman’s mind and when he does somehow decides women fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three different men while having sex with their partner.

With these kinds of “friends” who needs enemies?

The facts are in.

Washington DC is the main hub for corruption in the world.

Garbage in garbage out.

So put on your hard hat and gloves America…it’s time to take out the trash.

All Incumbents Out

I’ve heard the uninformed state things like “the government built the roads you drive on”.

No “it” didn’t.

Individual humans created the wealth that was then taxed to allow other individuals to build “the roads”.

The “government” is a collection of individuals who are suppose to be our brightest minds and moral leaders who’ve been successful in their own lives and can share their experiences on a larger platform guiding the positive growth of society.

Today’s government has neither bright minds nor moral leaders.

The last three Presidents have burdened the country with bigotry, economic absurdity, and ethical ambiguity.

The House of Representatives is more like House of Cards filled with individuals who aid and abet the crushing debt, have embraced Sharia Law, call for the militancy of illegals against Americans, and think islands can tip over.

The US Senate?

Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell?

If this is the best America has to offer…we are done.

Fortunately it isn’t.

America has incredible strength and it isn’t found in the “government”.

It’s found in you…the Individual.

The American Individual to be more precise.

It’s found in our businesses and our schools.

It’s found on our farms and in our markets.

Our law enforcement and fire.

It’s found in our military.

It’s there because we embrace the concept of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by the Individual.

Our culture is Freedom.

Hundreds of millions of Individuals who will not be grouped, contained, or restrained in any way.

Our DNA will not allow it.

Government is not our friend or our enemy.

It is a group of humans making decisions.

The better the humans the better the decisions.

The worse the humans the worse the decisions.

I have no doubt we can all collectively agree on one point.

Time for new humans in “government”.

California Senate Debate

America is screaming for a new way.

A brighter path.

The House Majority Leader (Eric Cantor) lost his last election to someone no one had “heard of.”

The Speaker of the House (John Boehner) voluntarily stepped down.

Even Barbara Boxer decided it would be better to “retire” than face the wrath of the California voter.

Of course her past proclamation and feigned outrage at what is happening to girls in Iraq provided the American people with an amazing view of a “politician”.

The abuse of women and children in this part of the world  has been going on for centuries.

So what does the media in California offer her citizens?

A debate with two Democrats and two Republicans…two career politicians and two former Party bosses.

Two corrupt wings.

One dying bird.

Americans on both sides of the aisle are lining up by the millions and casting votes for non-politicians (Trump, Carson) and perceived outsiders (Cruz and Sanders).

Americans have been very clear.

We do not want the status quo.

No more of the “crony” capitalism or in other words…corruption.

Yet here in California an American who has stood up, refused campaign contributions, a salary if elected to serve, and will only do so for one term, is being overlooked for career politicians or Party bosses by what will probably be the only debate in the Golden State before the Sample Ballot and Absentee Ballots are mailed.

Is it any wonder the Citizenry doesn’t trust the media anymore than a politician?

While our current government dances the tango Europe continues to explode costing the lives of more humans.

While our current government does the wave with a murderer at a baseball game more criminals were released in America who will then continue the pattern of being arrested again for murder or rape.

While our current government rebukes and blames a man for the breakdown of American society (who has never been spent a day in elected office) more money was released to the nation of Iran while admitting some of these billions would be used to fund terrorism.

As if that weren’t enough the Obama Administration continues to empty Guantanamo Bay of humans who we know are going back into the fight and have cost the lives of Americans.

These are indisputable facts that many in the media are ignoring or reluctantly covering.

They’d rather talk about a fictitious “war on women” than deal with the real war on women happening everywhere Sharia Law exists.

The same Sharia Law many Democratic Politicians think is just fine as support for Islam, Sunni or Shiite, is support for aforementioned oppression.

We are 19 trillion in debt, human trafficking (slavery) continues to happen through our Southern border, and a multi-generational drug problem, that is being ignored, grows worse.

Social Security is broke regardless of what the “experts” say.

Both Medicare and Medicaid have been hammered through Obamacare and a Boomer generation that has overwhelmed the system due to sheer numbers, poor nutrition, and irresponsible lifestyle choices.

Yet the first chance for Californians to hear a new voice is being shunned for four people who either supported Clinton, Bush, or Obama.

The worst generation of Presidents in American history.

These United States are through with Democratic and Republican lies and deception.

No more donkeys or elephants.

We want AMERICANS.

America First.  American Only.

My name is Jason Kraus.  I am registered No Party Preference.  California has designated me as an Independent and on that factor they are correct.

I am independent of corruption or said differently independent of Party.

If elected by the Great State of California I will be there to SERVE you.

To require the rule of law be enforced.

To remove all forms of income tax.

Free the American worker.

Close the border.

Protect the American Citizen.

I have created both an Economic Tax Plan and Immigration Policy that is comprehensive and will actually work unlike every plan I have seen from Presidential candidates.

Furthermore it is highly doubtful any of the “four” selected for the Senate debate in California have any plan at all.

Evil lurks where good Americans do nothing.

It is your time, our time to stand up and use the 1st Amendment to the very best of your ability.

Regardless of where you are in America the United States Senate position in California will affect you as each State sends only two Citizens.

Let your voice be heard now.

The phone number and email address to the television station KRCA Channel 3 is listed below.

916-446-3333 and web@KCRA.com

Use them both and stand shoulder to shoulder with me to require they put an American Voice on that stage.

Out here Channel 3 is an NBC affiliate.

I promise this to you.

Give me your voice and passion and require the NBC affiliate to have me on that stage and I personally guarantee “must see TV” in the likes never seen before.

Trust me my fellow Americans if on that stage I will change this election overnight.

Overnight.
