The Melting of the Snowflake

Russia! Russia! Russia!

When did the Democratic Party become Jan Brady?

Then again being a fictitious middle sister is dramatically better than factually being a part of La Raza, CAIR, BLM, or the Nation of Islam.

The same Nation of Islam that called for the killing of all White People.

The same Black Lives Matter that called for cops to be fried like bacon and then murdered law enforcement in the streets.

The same Council of American Islamic Relations that supports Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

The same La Raza that believes they are “The Race”.

Talk about the most Anti-American quadratic equation ever.

Can anyone say Keith Ellison?

It appears the Democratic Party might.

I can hear it now.

Nancy Pelosi, she of the Hamas is a Humanitarian Organization belief, will stand and say,”We are pleased to introduce the new head of the Muslim Brotherhood, err the DNC, Brother Keith Ellison. I’ve been told to say As-salamu alaykum, so I will, although I’ll have to read the Quran later or Google Snopes to know exactly what I just said.  So congrats Brother Ellison and Allah Akbar!”

I digress.

Jerry Brown is a greater danger to Democrats (and Humans) in California than Vladimir Putin.

Kamala Harris is a greater hazard to Democrats (and Humans) in California than Vladimir Putin.

The release of convicted felons (with the approval of Brown, Pelosi, and Harris) happening in California every day due to “overcrowding” is a greater risk to Democrats (and Humans) in California than Bad Vlad yet it’s the Brady Bunch twenty-four seven.

Should we tell them again?  Do you think they will get it this time?

Maybe we should sit the Dems down with an “edible” to soothe their frayed nerves.

After a few bites of high fructose corn syrup, genetically modified wheat, and just enough synthetic mary jane to reportedly send an NFL defensive end crawling on the ground naked at a police station, the Dems may finally be ready to hear the truth.

Nope not yet.

We just lost them on “synthetic” because “real weed is the shnizzle my dizzle” and cures all diseases and problems in the world.

“You know Jason, marijuana comes from the ground.”

Yes I know.

So does the Poppy.

Natural Gas “comes from the ground” too but you don’t see me breathing deeply around Public Transportation busses awaiting existential thoughts.

Let us try anyway.

Here we go.

Hush now Dems.  We want you to concentrate.  Even though some of this info was around before Jesus and then reintroduced and honed by Jefferson, Madison et al, it appears you guys are slow learners.

Democracy leads to Tyranny.

The United States is not a Democracy.

Okay hold up a minute.  Put down the bong.  I know this can be tough on the Sixties/Snowflake lifestyle so let me try again in a slightly different manner.

The United States is not a Democracy.

Democracy leads to Tyranny.

Whoa Whoa WHOA!!! Safe spaces safe spaces! Someone get a safety pin! That’s totally different Jason!  You can’t be moving things around!  My Snapchat account won’t allow that! By the way that’s not what our teachers are saying. Our teachers say we are a Democracy.  Not really sure what that means but I KNOW that’s what we are.

Yes I know you’ve been told this for decades.  Don’t feel bad.  We’ve all been fed garbage for a while like cigarettes are good for us and margarine is healthier than butter.  Type-Two Diabetes went from a disease to a manageable lifestyle.  High cholesterol, heart attacks and strokes aren’t caused by our choices anymore.  Obesity is now plus size not to mention it isn’t your fault for slamming a half dozen sodas a day and living on AM/PM corn dogs.

It’s all hereditary.

Just blame your “rents” and stay on their medical insurance as long as you can.

Here’s your pill and your sign.

Jason! Jason! Jason!

Yes Jan?

Well Mr. Smart Guy, Mr. Know it all, Mr. Bald privileged white guy with “high cheekbones” who doesn’t do drugs, rarely drinks, and writes incredibly entertaining columns free for all to read….

(Sound of a deep breath.  Could be an inhaler.  Probably not, followed by a hacking cough and then a hand reaching for a brownie).

Yes Jan?

Sorry Mr Smart Guy, Mr. Socratic Theory! Mr. Adam Smith! Mr. James Madison! Mr. I cannot focus on what you are saying because of your striking Elizabeth Warren cheekbones….

(Gulp of a Starbucks Frappuchino followed by a quick selfie of a new piercing (insert body part here) and a quick tweet about Global Warming).

Sorry Mr. Abraham Maslow!  If you are so smart then tell me what is the United States of America?

Well first Jan it is shaved not bald and secondly we are a Constitutional Republic.

What’s that?

I thought you’d never ask.

America. Where I come from.

Leaders don’t lead from the back or check the wind and adjust to which way they think it is blowing.

Leaders lead.

It is understandable that some in America aren’t sure anymore what ethical leadership looks like.

After twenty-four years of Clinton, Bush, Obama, the appearance of “leadership” hasn’t been seen in almost three decades.

So let us be clear.  Leaders don’t join groups.

They create a vision and move forward regardless of support.

Real leadership is driven by ethics and ethical people don’t meet “in the middle”.

How does one meet La Raza in the middle?  They think they are the RACE.

How does one meet Black Lives Matter in the middle? Wait until they attack more cops and then grant them pardons?

How does one meet CAIR in the middle? Allow the continued murder of homosexuals as long as they stop beating women?

How does one meet the Klan in the middle? Offer pink sheets, fire retardant timber, and a dental plan?

This is America and we don’t meet evil “in the middle”.

Never have never will.

At least we don’t where I come from.

You see where I come from we don’t wear onesies or vaginas.  We listened to the Material Girl but even back then we all knew she wasn’t like a virgin or sane.

Apparently Papa didn’t Preach enough.

We’d heard of Meryl Streep but back then we called her Jane Fonda.

Where I come from citizens wore guns on their hips, not concealed in the least, and if you had a truck, you had a rifle in the rack, and nobody cared or got shot.

I personally wasn’t much into guns or knives.  It’s hard to carry one when you are constantly swinging a bat but my younger brother and I used to stalk deer in the mountains to see if we could get close enough to touch them.

Almost did a couple of times.

Where I come from if we catch you beating a women, well let’s just say, Allah isn’t going to help you.

Neither will Sharia.

Where I come from if you think you are a special RACE, well let’s just say it won’t be our first rodeo in dealing with evil, but trust me when I say this, you won’t be able to handle the bull or the horns.

Where I come from if we catch you attacking cops, well let’s just say, justice will come swiftly and without mercy, prejudice or pardon.

Finally where I come from if you start wearing sheets on your head, well, we call you Democrat and have been doing so since you voted to keep slavery.

If you burn crosses we call you Democrat and have been doing so since Margaret Sanger wanted to abort all black and poor children in America.

If you give eulogies for a Klan member we call you Democrat and have been doing so since both Hillary and Barack covered Robert Byrd in warm words.

If you give money to our enemies we call you Democrat and have been doing so since Clinton and Obama gave millions if not billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and Iran.

You see where I come from we don’t suffer fools even if they played Forrest Gump.

Where I come from we don’t coddle traitors even if they think the Thunder Rolls.

Where I come from Fidel and Che are murdering, rapist thugs, Christians and Jews aren’t the problem, and women don’t brag about having abortions.

Where is this place you come from Jason?

I’m glad you asked.

I come from the United States.

I have had the privilege of being part of a citizenry that is known far and wide for two things.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

I will borrow from a newly minted twenty-first century poet.

“We aren’t coming to take part.  We are coming to take over.”

There will be no middle ground.

No negotiation.

There is no race, only a People.

We are the People and go by only one name.

American.

No middle ground found here.

It’s time to remember where we come from and who we are.

You are either an American or a Democrat.

Can’t be both.

We say grace and ma’am and if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

Liberals continue to scream about the loss of Democracy and most Republican politicians mimic this belief.

Is it any wonder we are where we are?

If a physician prescribes aspirin for your heart, a blood thinner, and you instead decide to eat donuts every morning, one shouldn’t be surprised when they are clutching their chest and screaming for someone to call 911.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again.  The United States is a Constitutional Republic.

A Constitutional Republic is a Freedom based model.

Democracy is the slide away from Aristocracy, Timocracy, and Oligarchy into Tyranny.

This is called Socratic Theory.

Liberals in both Parties have either never heard of Socrates or think they are smarter than the man Western Philosophy refers to as its Father.

My guess is at least ninety-five percent of Democrats in Congress cannot explain Socratic Theory in its simplest form and if they cannot explain it then what does that say about their constituency?

In this day and age being a registered Democrat is proof enough that one is Anti-American.

That’s a pretty strong statement Jason some will say.

If strong means accurate then you would be correct.

To be an American means to cherish Freedom.

The United States has been colored or described many ways over the last two plus centuries but at the forefront is always Freedom.

Individual Freedom.

Now we are inundated by the masses or group think.

CAIR, La Raza, BLM, Sanctuary Cities, and Climate Changers are all Democratic groups.

If a lie is repeated enough it becomes part of everyday life.

Notice I didn’t say it becomes true.

Lies regardless of repetition are still lies and create false premises in the minds of the weak and unstable.

An example of this was found this week, on a television talk show, I happened upon while on my way to watch highlights of MMA, otherwise known as one of Meryl’s favorite sports.

I’m surprised Streep and Kaepernick haven’t come together to form the “diversity coalition” known as deaf, dumb, and kneel.

I digress.

The aforementioned talk show topic pertained to a “writer” who had apparently needed a plumber.  When the plumber arrived he had a “southern accent” and because of this the “writer” created a story in his own head that the plumber (who’d been invited to the man’s location and was quite pleasant according to the “writer”) was probably a Trump voter and thereby dangerous.

Due to no facts whatsoever the “writer” became afraid that the man with an accent was going to hurt him because, again, he perceived him to be a Trump supporter.

Liberals.

Can’t live with them…don’t want to.

I’m not sure which is more pathetic.

The usage of stereotyping, the outright bigotry, or this guy admitting to being the biggest puss in the world.

I mean come on already Sally.  Just step to the side.  Your participation EBT card and rent controlled voucher is on its way.

I still think the crushing debt in America is our greatest danger but gaining ground quickly is the continuing procreation of the Liberal man and woman.

In order to save our Republic we may have to create a new fund.

We can garner proceeds by asking Americans at each election to donate a few dollars to go towards birth control for all Liberals.

This should be in triplicate mode if economically possible as we know Liberals struggle with the concept of having intercourse without Planned Parenthood Protection.

Who’s down with PPP?  A little Naughty by Natcha but not cuz I hate cha Progressives.

Americans don’t hate whiny little men who need a baby wipe because a plumber with a drawl said y’all.

“We pity the fools” besides we know what they are.

They are the supporters of Castro and Guevara or said another way Adolph and Osama.

The only difference between Fidel and Che and the Chief Nazi were Panzer tanks and a general named Rommel.

The United States is filled with men and women born and bred from the courage of Bunker Hill and Lexington.

Omaha and Normandy Beach.

We give thanks, “say grace and ma’am and if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn”.

Courtesy of an American.  Last name Williams first name Hank.

Now head back to your toilet that the American fixed and try standing up when you tinkle Sprinkles.

It’s better for the spine…not that it’ll matter to you.

The Death Spiral known as the Democratic Party

Recently an article hit the internet proclaiming the life span of some Americans to be growing shorter.

Eight years of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid cocktail coupled with a Ryan/McConnell chaser can do that to a person.

Of course it is easy to take shots at evil and cowardice.

What isn’t easy is its removal.

It should be.

It really should be.

I’m having a Sally Field flashback.

Sadly the aforementioned names have more in common with the DNA of a cockroach than a human attempting to Be.

Why is this?

The need to belong is only surpassed in importance to survival by water, food, shelter, and security.  (Abraham Maslow)

In that order.

With those needs met the human animal will seek somewhere to belong.  When an appropriate atmosphere isn’t found an inappropriate one will be chosen.  Some will point to young kids joining gangs.  Although possible the more likely need being met by these kids is their need to be secure or even food and shelter.

A better example are the supporters of Bernie Sanders, La Raza, Black Lives Matter, etc.

The individuals making up these groups are devolving rapidly in regards to the Homo Sapien species.

That seems to be a harsh statement Jason.

It isn’t harsh at all.  It is true and one of the reasons Americans aren’t living as long anymore.

When one stops requiring facts everything after that is a mess someone else will have to endure and probably clean up.

Then again if the pace isn’t quickened in parts of Detroit, Mother Nature will shoulder the burden, as I have personally witnessed.

Any house built on a weak foundation, or no foundation at all, will always crumble, usually wreaking havoc on other individuals who are in its proximity.

BLM members make statements like hands up don’t shoot (a lie) or facts don’t matter when it comes to race.

To critically thinking evolving humans, facts are the only thing that matters, regardless of the subject.

La Raza followers scream about “racism” and bigotry while calling themselves “The Race” in Spanish.

These are the kinds of minds that would load six bullets into a six shooter and then play “Russian Roulette”.

“Some Americans aren’t living as long.”

No kidding?

Forty years of obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, crushing debt, sexual promiscuity, and the rise of government programs will shorten the span of life?

Really?

Yes really.

Of course millions seem to not grasp proper nutrition, sleep, work, exercise, a sober mind and individual responsibility are the catalysts to evolution and longer life.

How do we know this?

Bernie Sanders still has followers, Bill and Hillary Clinton still have freedom, and Keith Ellison wants to run the Democratic Party.

An atheist who believes women fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three men endorsed a criminal whose husband has actually raped women. This trio is being joined by a man who called for black humans to have their own land where peaceful whites would be allowed.  Aside from the peaceful whites there is a place like this.

It’s called Liberia although I’m not sure if they would welcome a Sunni Muslim with open arms due to an issue called slavery.

These four aren’t the problem.

They are symptoms.

The problem lies in the lack of common sense, courage, and compassion found in their followers and their unwillingness to search out and find appropriate situations in which to belong.

Getting high, sleeping around, and wishing they’d had an abortion isn’t going to do it.

Socrates was right.

Democracy does lead to Tyranny.

I guess the good news for the Democrats is they won’t be living as long.

Freedom is up to you.

As this Presidential cycle comes to fruition I’ve heard and read ideas that have provoked thought, others that have been covered in pure ridiculousness and finally the rantings of disgustingly outright dishonesty.

Sordid affairs, criminal collusion and the ignorance that allows this part of human behavior to occur, has been on full display.

Through this a comment was made that drew my attention.  “God is on Donald Trump’s side.”

It reminded me of the famous Lincoln quote “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side;  my greatest concern is to be on God’s side….”

It’s really a wonderful statement in that Lincoln understood his own fallibility as well as duty while giving credit to a “higher power”.

It is an incredibly important measurement of honorable leadership.  The giving of credit AND the taking of blame.

It is the purity of the knowledgeable, to appreciate the gift of Free Will in one hand, while embracing its responsibility, in the other.

So let us be knowledgeable.

Tens of millions in America have lost their way.

Too many have cast off humility as though it is a weighted stone, not a pillar of society, and embraced the beating of their own chests.  Too many believe it is their “right” to ask for or demand things because “they can”.

Too many believe they are the “higher power”.

I have never been a God fearing man.

For those of you who have read Late Bird you know I don’t see the “Big Fella Upstairs” as vengeful.

I believe in a loving God that has given us Free Will and the ability to use it in any manner we decide.

Whether one believes in God, or not, doesn’t remove Free Will from the equation as “belief” in a “higher power” or not, is a practice of…Free Will.

I’ve also had plenty of experiences that I’ve felt were wrong or unjust.  This is not “God’s Will” nor should the blame be laid at the feet of a higher power.

Those that commit acts of aggression or apathy are the ones responsible for such action(s).

It’s called Personal Responsibility or lack thereof.

These actions will continue to increase due to a lack of consequences, not because the “Big Fella Upstairs” is angry.

I don’t profess to speak for God, or attach human qualities, but if I had to my guess is, if God is up there looking upon human activity, the most common emotion to fulfill his day, would be sadness.

Sadness that we have been given so much knowledge but seem never to learn.

Over the years I’ve had plenty of conversations about what happens after our time here is over.

A friend of mine who’d seen combat told me decades ago “there’s nothing after this Jason, we go back into the ground.”

A female Sunni Muslim told me one time “good acts” are the key to the afterlife.  When I asked her if there were “72 virgins” awaiting her arrival she said she wasn’t sure.  Because we were having a pleasant chat I also inquired as to why she was covered head to toe but the men were not.  Seemed unfair to me.  She looked at me for a few seconds and said “you’re right”.

Yes, I know.

I’ve discussed Buddhism with many and their view of Nirvana and Rebirth.  The concepts of Siddhartha Gautama are interesting but the one thing that drew my attention was and is its practice in oppressive Communist China.

Perhaps a discussion for another day.

The two most important concepts to me, in regards to Jesus, are the simple yet powerful ideas to love God and love one another.

Sounds like the answer to every human related behavioral issue on the planet.  This leads me to a conversation I’ve had a few times over the years.

It usually goes something like this:

Jason: Yes I believe in Jesus.  No I do not call myself a Christian.

Friend: How can you believe in Jesus but not call yourself a Christian?

Jason:  How can you not believe in him?  Jesus is the only one I am familiar with that the entire planet changed the measurement of time over.

Friend:  Measurement of time?

Jason:  BC, Before Christ, AD, Anno Domini, In the year of the Lord.  Every nation around the world regardless of religious views recognizes the current year as 2016…AD.

Friend:  Another reason to be a Christian.

Jason: Okay let me get this straight.  If we both exit the planet at the same time and arrive at the gates of Heaven, St. Peter is going to give me the stop sign and wave you on through…according to you.

Friend:  Yes.

Jason:  And that is okay with you.

Friend:  Of course it isn’t. That’s why I want you to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

Jason:  I appreciate that.  Let me ask you this.  I have known plenty of criminals who have abused men, women, and children and claimed to have found Jesus.  Because of this they will be heading through with you while I will be left with the alternative?

Friend:  Yes.

Jason:  Again I can appreciate your concern although if the abusers are getting through I don’t think this is the place for me but let me try and explain the way I see this.  If we both arrive together you have already stated you are going through while I am being stopped right?  Maybe you’ll give me a little wave or something but once we arrive it’s every man or woman for themselves yes?

Friend:  Yes.

Jason:  Okay.  This is the way I see it.  If we get to the gates and St. Peter waves you through I’ll wish you well and deal with whatever is coming my way.  However, let’s say we get to the gates and Pete sees us coming and instead of you getting the green light…I am.  Who knows why?  Maybe the rules changed, maybe Pete’s just having a bad day.  Regardless I get a big “attababy” or “well done son come on home” while you are told there is “no room at the inn.”  If this were to happen I’d stop at the gate and say “I appreciate it Pete, I really do, but it’s either both of us…or none of us.  There is no way the loving God I know is leaving anyone at the gate and neither am I.”

Shoulder to shoulder.

My fellow Americans.

My greatest concern is not whether God is on our side.  My greatest concern is whether we are on the side of the Big Fella Upstairs.

The side of virtue and tenacity, grace and perseverance, compassion and critical thinking.

God has blessed these United States.

Freedom is up to us.

Freedom is up to me.

Freedom is up to you.

In for a penny, in for a pound.

Baseball is a white man’s game

Recently a black major league baseball player commented that “baseball is a white man’s game,” when asked why NFL players were having “protests” (in others words cowardly acts of stupidity) and MLB players were not.

“Baseball is a white man’s game,” said the millionaire black baseball player who probably thinks Plato is a kids toy that comes in a can.

It’s actually called America’s Past-Time but why bother with facts when bigotry and lies are available.

Then again maybe he has a point not found directly on top of his head.

Let us take a quick look.

It is a fact that “modern day” baseball was created by a white man and spread throughout America by white men but then again so was football, basketball, the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Emancipation Proclamation.

These men are all dead but if they were here, rather than kneel, I’d ask them to take a bow.

Now we could run down the false narrative/rabbit hole that this “country was built on the backs of blacks” and “it’s time for reparations” as the UN just stated but to do so we would have to ignore facts like the slavery of white humans (Irish) in America well before the “Afrikan” arrived.

Never mind the small “inconsequential” fact that black humans owned slaves as well.

We’d also have to ignore that almost half of the United States never had black slaves which includes the largest State in America.

California.

By itself, California, is ranked as one of the top ten economies in the world.

Furthermore the War Between the States (nothing Civil about War) crushed the South as death, destruction and Sherman burned everything in their path.

It’s called Reconstruction for a reason and it happened by people of all colors who were FREE.

America wasn’t built on the “backs of blacks”.

It was built by the Individual.

Individual humans who bigots like to call Whites, Blacks, Browns, and Blues with Purple Polka Dots if you so choose.

Some will disagree but this is irrelevant as no humans from this time period still exist.

One does not get credit or blame for the actions of others, past or present.

Ignorance, or the ignoring of facts, comes in every color, gender, sexual preference, etc.

The latest propaganda we are being fed is that kneeling at the playing of the national anthem is about black humans being shot by law enforcement.

This is false.

Hands up don’t shoot was and is still a lie.

Michael Brown was a criminal with an extensive record who robbed and assaulted a store owner before attacking a police officer who then shot and killed him…in self-defense.

As I am tired and disgusted by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton, who marched the mothers of dead criminals onto the podium at their convention, I will say this.

Those neighborhoods are better and safer places to be without those abusive thugs.

Get it? Got it? GOOD!

Furthermore standing up on that stage playing the victim was and is pathetic.

Michael Brown and others weren’t born criminals.

They were babies that were ignored, abused, and egregiously shorted on love and discipline…by the women on that stage.

Where hugs were needed drugs were heeded and they became detriments to society.

Forty years of “programs” and crushing illegal “immigration” has ruined the “inner” communities.

The “ghettos” are filled with drugs, prostitution, child abuse, and according to Obama, humans that look like him.

That he ever said those words is “deplorable” but then again what difference does it make?

Barack Obama is and has been a parasite to the black, brown and white communities and after eight years things are worse for those that look like him…and those that don’t.

I digress.

This isn’t a “rant” against Obama.  This is information and an explanation, on how many in the black communities, especially athletes, are getting sucked into Islam and I’ll bet most of them have no idea.

In the sixties through “black liberation” and “black theology” Islam, specifically Sunni Islam, crept into the homes of many Black Americans.

While Martin chose Jesus and a dream, Malcolm chose Mohammed and a nightmare.

While the rest of America moved towards the seventies and eighties, voices began to surface, calling for the killing of the white devil and death to America.

White Guilt emerged and programs like Affirmative Action began to allow the indoctrination of hate into our colleges and universities while Ebonics celebrated illiteracy.

Although Americans were attacked by Iranians most didn’t understand Islam and those that did were okay with Americans not liking Iran because Iran was predominately Shiite not Sunni.

As the eighties and go go nineties roared on, the immigration policies, changed by the Democrats (Ted Kennedy) were taken advantage of by the Clintons who opened up a personally profitable relationship with Saudi Arabia that has continued to this day through the Clinton Foundation and has only been slightly curtailed, by Obama favoring Iran (Shiite), and pseudo investigations by the hapless or possibly/probably complicit Republican controlled Congress.

While all this shifting and fighting was taking place Democratic groups like ACORN were created to take advantage of our electoral system that is suppose to be about reliability and transparency.

Our elections have neither today.

As in all times in human history, when moral shifts to the downside happen, it is the children, the weak and the poor who suffer the most.

While the ghettos collapsed, black Americans fled and continue to flee searching for the same things every human requires.

Water, food, shelter, security, and to belong.

Those that couldn’t or didn’t are now trapped in a circular or cyclical feedback loop that virtually guarantees the failure of those in these situations.

This has been going on for forty years and Islam is now rooted in many of these communities with many not even realizing they are being used as pawns.

This has been further exacerbated by the immigration pattern/policy of the politicians in the Boomer Generation (Clinton and Bush) and Barack Obama over his last eight years.

I would like to point out, so far, every professional or college athlete that I have seen that has knelt, except for a female soccer player, has been black.

They’ve told themselves and others it is about “police shootings” but it wasn’t in the beginning and it isn’t now.

More white Americans are killed by law enforcement every year.

More black Americans are killed by other black Americans than police every year.

More blacks die from drugs and car accidents than police shootings.

Of course to those who won’t gather facts this doesn’t sound right.

Most Americans think they hear on television every day another black man was shot…for no reason.

This is absolutely false and a narrative that is working quite well for groups like the Nation of Islam, CAIR, and even La Raza who uses different “opportunities” to take advantage of falsehoods while stating they care about “people of color”.

It’s basically the Crips and the Bloods but rather than flying colors like blue and red they have embraced different forms of the crescent moon.

Now everything I just stated is true and verifiable but some will still not want to do the research or simply don’t want to believe that Islam is involved.

Prove it Jason.  Everything you just said is circumstantial or subjective.

Fine.

Black Lies Matter endorsed the Palestinian Authority.

They endorsed HAMAS, an Islamic Sunni terrorist organization that also takes money from Iran.

Every time a knee is taken those players, knowingly or not, are endorsing Sharia Law and the executions of apostates and infidels.

They are approving of the subjugation of women, the murder of homosexuals and insanely enough themselves, if they aren’t Muslim.

From a historical perspective they are also approving of the Nazis as the Muslims fought with the Germans.

The same Nazis that referred to humans with brown or black skin as “mud people”.

In essence every time they kneel they are championing bigotry.

Every time they kneel they are spitting on Martin and praising Mohammed.

Every time these teams allow this behavior they are spitting in the face of our troops in harms way.

With that said I want to point out something NONE of the media is talking about.

The overwhelming majority of black athletes are standing at attention and many with hands over their hearts.

If the media is going to continue to spend time listening to athletes, how about we focus on the cream…not the crap.

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.

Ignorance will never be blissful

Last week a conversation took place of which I became privy.

One individual (let’s call her a cross between Margaret and Marilyn, Thatcher and Monroe) was patiently trying to explain to another individual (let’s call her a combo between Bernie Sanders and nataS) why, despite the ignorance of the media and politicians of both Parties, the United States of America is a Constitutional Republic and not a Democratic Republic .

“But Dan Rather said we are a Democratic Republic and I agree with him.”

Yes you read that right…Dan Rather.

The same Dan Rather who was fired from CBS due to reporting lies about the Bush Administration.

Stunning when you think about it…having to create lies to go after Bush when W supplied so much to prosecute on his own.

According to this “proud progressive”, Dan Rather is the end all be all, when it comes to what kind of country we have.

I guess Brian Williams was unavailable.

Probably busy ducking bullets with Hillary.

Insert disgust here.

Marilyn Thatcher, showing incredible patience, started to explain the difference between a Constitutional Republic and a Democracy.

As I have explained this ad nauseam (for those of you who use the term Latino but don’t speak Latin ad nauseam can be defined as having to explain things to you, over and over again, causing me to retch) over the years, I will keep this short just in case we have any liberals (attention span issues) looking to be educated.

Constitutional Republic:  Protects the Constitutional Rights of the Individual through the Rule of Law. (Freedom)

Democracy:  Majority over Minority or in other words gang mentality. (Oppression)

DO NOT SEND ME LINKS FROM SNOPES ABOUT DEMOCRACY.

YOU ARE WRONG.

I digress.

This info was presented to the SS acolyte along with the fact that in referring to the United States as a Democratic Republic, she was ignoring a little thing we AMERICANS like to call:

The Constitution.

Our heroine did a little copy and paste and sent a note to the Progressive puppet.

United States Constitution Article 4, Section 4:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a REPUBLICAN Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Furthermore it was pointed out to Beelzebub that there are Democratic Republics around the world.

The Democratic Republic of Congo.  (Also known as one of the poorest countries on the the planet.)

The Democratic Republic of Algeria.  (Yes ye of the crescent moon)

The Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. (No more need be said)

If you are reading this, and thinking these are all countries in Africa, you would be correct.

In other words the worst continent to live on in the world.

Some will point to Germany as a Democratic Republic and after some research it appears they call themselves quite a few things including a Democratic Republic.

Sounds about right for the motherland of Karl Marx and Adolph Hitler.

So on one side of the equation we have the teachings and thoughts of Plato, Adam Smith, John Locke, and others, evolving through time, arriving in America through generation after generation of humans, eventually able to construct the ideas of Free Will and Freedom, into a document written by many, including Alexander Hamilton and James Madison.

I can hear the liberals now.  What is this written document of which he speaks and what does Pluto have to do with it?

On the other side of the equation we have destitute countries in Africa, Islam and Marxism (systemic oppression) and Adolph Hitler (Nazism).

Is it any wonder, those of us with a soul, abhor “Progressive Liberals”.

When you or your ignorance decide to choose Karl Marx over James Madison you are an enemy of free people, an enemy of all people, and an enemy of the American People.

“People who are free are never equal.  People who are equal are never free.”

The breakdown of Progressivism (Communism) is in full bloom.

Crushing debt, lack of the rule of law and overt corruption has overtaken the greatest country in the history of man.

When Dan Rather becomes the “go to guy” the jig is up.

The game is over.

It’s simply time to send in the clowns.

The fat lady with the Chairman Mao attire is singing…and she is tone deaf.

It’s time for a brand new band.

A band of Constitutional Republicans known as…Americans.

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.
