Free Education. You get what you’ll pay for.

Decades ago I had a discussion with my father. I’d heard something on the radio and it’d resonated with me. As we spoke I mixed it into the conversation. My dad gave me a weird look and then ripped what I said apart in about ten-seconds. Of course I was home from college and filled with an “education” so I just ignored him. What did this hardworking, dedicated, intelligent, bear of a man who’d only RAISED me and PAID my way through college know that I didn’t?

Excuse me for a second while I pause to laugh at my own absurdity.

It took a few years of life experience to realize how wrong I’d been. Once I did the next time I saw my dad I asked him if he remembered that particular conversation. He said he did.  I told him I was 100% wrong and that he was 100% right.

He nodded and said, “Yes I know.”

We still laugh about that every once in a while.

Fortunately for me I had a father willing to set me straight on the things that were true and the things that were not.

I feel for the kids these days.

The propaganda has been so overwhelming over the last few decades that those that even bother to look for facts find it difficult to weed through all the garbage in an attempt to glean a bit of knowledge.

Furthermore the “education” they are given hasn’t prepared them to be able to read and understand the knowledge that has been provided for centuries from the minds of Socrates, Plato, Locke, Jefferson, Hamilton, Madison and Maslow.

They’ve been lied to for so long they think the definitions of words have changed so let us provide the children and the self-loathing Liberals a clear path to the truth through simplicity.

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic.

It isn’t a Democracy, Democratic Socialism, compatible with Sharia or a Representative Republic.

THESE ARE ALL UNTRUTHS.

If you feel the need to argue…don’t.

If you feel the need to explain…stop.

If you feel the need to justify or rationalize…go see a counselor.

I don’t do free therapy anymore.

As I’ve explained this in depth over the years I will not go into Article 4 Section 4. I will not go into Socratic Theory. I will not go into John Adams stating that all Democracies commit suicide.

I will explain this simply.

Stop popping the newest version of Ritalin called Adderall, put down the edibles and your cell phones and PAY ATTENTION Libs and Millenials.

Your lives may depend upon it down the road.

Concept Number One:

Americans do not have Democratic Rights, Democratic Socialist Rights, Sharia Rights or Representative Rights.

We have Constitutional Rights.

Not convinced?

Let’s use your words.

“I can say anything I want. It’s my Right” or “I don’t have to talk to you I have the Right to remain silent” or “you can’t tell me what to do, you aren’t the boss of me, I’m not your slave.”

Sound familiar?

Of course it does.

I’m sure most of you have said these things at one time or another, probably to your parents or step-parents.

Putting aside those Rights have nothing to do with talking to your parents, your statements are true because those Rights are listed under very specific Amendments in a document most of us call the United States Constitution.

We call them CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS and I strongly suggest most of you give the 1st Amendment a break, start exercising the 5th and learn which political Party actually brought about the 13th.

Silence is golden and in many of your cases dramatically needed.

Furthermore while Democracy ends in Tyranny, Socialism and Sharia are both paths to slavery, in one form or another.

Hijab, Sickle & Hammer, or Klan hood.

Slightly different roads all ending at the same destination.

Concept Number Two:

Diversity.

When I was a child Diversity pertained to economics as the divergence of different stocks, bonds, property, cash, gold, etc.

The idea was to have monetary DIVERSITY to ensure one did not have “all of their eggs in one basket”.

This is still the best way to protect your financial freedom.

Today however the term Diversity is used to explain the “mixing” of humans with “different color skin” in society.

Another word for this is Bigotry.

Some will struggle with this because it gets too close to their “safe spaces” so I want to be very clear.

Anyone who believes taking a human with one color skin and putting that human into a group of humans with a different color skin will make that situation “better” based on skin color, is a complete and utter idiot.

The proximity to the sun of your ancestors doesn’t make society better or worse.

Behavior does.

Sending Jason Kraus to play for the Golden State Warriors isn’t going to make them better because I happen to have “white” skin just like having Steph Curry write my columns isn’t going to make them better because he has “black” skin.

Both situations would be dramatically WORSE.

I cannot hit a thirty foot jumper all day long and Curry can barely speak let alone write coherent truthful thoughts. I’m not picking on Curry. Most of the players in the NBA cannot give a thirty-second interview without stuttering, muttering, or “guttering” the English language.

Some of the coaches and owners are even worse.

Steve Kerr, Gregg Popovich and Mark Cuban sound like morons every time they speak.

One is filled with White Guilt, the other is probably an alcoholic and if Mark Cuban isn’t on an amphetamine of some sort then they need to get that man to the Mayo Clinic.

Yes, these three happen to be white, which proves asininity is not only color blind but everywhere in the “Association”.

Pay attention kids because we are about to move on. Your success or failure in life has nothing to do with your “shade of grey”.

Skin color “diversity” is again BIGOTRY.

Learn it, love it, live it.

Finally we have “culture”.

Food, music, hair care products et al, have nothing to do with culture.

Culture is too important to be broken down by caloric intake, someone named Slim Shady or a weave.

How rice is prepared or who is rocking corn rows has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Culture is everything.

It is the choices that were made before you were born.

It is the choices that were made while you were raised and it is the choices you will make that will dictate what kind of life your children and grand-children will have.

There are only two cultures in human behavior.

Freedom and Oppression.

Individual choices and responsibilities or Dictator/State run programs.

Capitalism or famine.

Color blind or blinded by color.

Constitutional Republic or Democracy.

Success or failure.

The choice is yours my youthful friends but make no mistake.

Your choice will not “infringe” upon America for too much longer as we are steeled with the Truth, armed with Free Will and the greatest insurance policy known to Man otherwise known as the 2nd Amendment.

But for the grace of God go I.

On the other hand you Liberals, well, you haven’t any grace, and don’t believe in God so we won’t bother with the “thoughts and prayers”.

We will leave you with the three other words that bring you to tears.

Lock and Load.

We cannot suffer the fools any longer

It was cold that night in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, probably ten degrees. I was riding shotgun and had a slow boil going due to a piece of fecal matter supervisor, who treated the At Risk youth we were supposed to be helping, worse than he treated the staff. We’d had our “chats” over the last few months and as unfulfilling as they were to both of us I was beyond being angry with him.

It was now rage and I turned that rage right where I thought it had been earned.

I went off on God.

I left no stone unturned, no adjective, noun or verb was removed and to describe it as profane would be describing it mildly.

I questioned how an all powerful Being could allow children to be sexually, physically and emotionally abused by their parents and then sent to a camp where the guy in charge was a raging a-hole.

I sneered at the all powerful Father with an anger that knows no fear and dared Him to shut me up.

My friend, the driver, sat very quietly, as my rant went unanswered by the Big Fella Upstairs. When I paused for a breath my friend attempted  a small joke that I didn’t bother to acknowledge. I was locked in and ready to play my trump card.

“If this is all you got God, then come get me now. I f#$%ing dare you.”

Ten-seconds turned into ten minutes as the car came to a stop at our destination.  I stepped out, more disgusted than ever, when I froze in my tracks.

For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you know what happened next.  For those of you who haven’t, well, let’s just say, The BIG FELLA UPSTAIRS reminded me who indeed was in charge…and it wasn’t me.

From that point on I’ve never questioned God.

Our conversations are always me saying thank you.  On an average day this happens about one half dozen times. Fortunately for me most of my days are better than average so our short chats happen quite a bit.

Recently I was doing some home improvements and as I was working through my twentieth can of spray foam insulation the mundanity of it made me smile and look skyward. This time it wasn’t to say thank you but rather a question. Not a question of blame but rather a question I’ve asked  many times over the years.

“Am I where you want me to be?”

Now I am not saying God spoke to me.

It’s possible the fumes from the spray foam may have altered my consciousness. What I am saying is my brain fed me an instant reaction and it is one I have not had in a very long time.

Lead by example with kindness.

I should also mention I did inhale quite a bit of wood/pellet smoke from a newly installed pipe that was leaking.

With that said the thought hit me again.

Lead with kindness.

I nodded slightly and then continued the conversation by asking another question.

What do we do with those who are deaf to the truth?

The answer was immediate.

Take them by the hand my son.

My next question arrived just as fast.

What do we do with those who will not see?

Put them on your shoulders my child.

After checking the label on the spray foam one more time I posited this to the Big Fella Upstairs.

What do we with Evil?

My immediate thought was “build an Ark” followed by the famous line from the movie that kept millions out of the water “you’re going to need a bigger boat”.

I like to think God has a sense of humor.

Of course I’m not Noah or Roy Scheider.

Although appreciative of the comical break I inquired again.

What do we do with Evil?

My mind was silent, at least on this topic, for the rest of the day. I’ve had this happen before and I did what I do when braced with a subject I cannot immediately fix.

I let my brain sit with the issue and moved on to other things in life. I no longer vacillate as it has never provided me with a positive answer, simply a headache.

Two days later sitting in traffic I watched as many empty vessels around me behaved in ways that could only be described as sad when immediately the answer to my question came to fruition.

“Do unto others as they have done unto you.”

Instantly I knew the phrase was incorrect. I knew the saying was “Do unto others as you would have done unto you” BUT that’s not the message that I received or kept receiving.

As many are certainly wondering “were any of those empty spray foam cans left in your truck?”

There were not and I’m not starting a “religion” or saying The Big Fella Upstairs was talking to me.

As I’ve said many times the name is Jason Kraus not Jesus Christ but I do believe if we “ask” the right questions “we shall receive” the appropriate answers.

So, what do we do with those that lie, cheat and steal from the United States Citizen?

What do we do with those who have sworn to protect and defend America yet continue to do the exact opposite?

What do we do with elected officials who ignore the molestation, rape and murder of our fellow Americans and encourage Human Trafficking through our open Southern Border?

We’ve tried being kind, generous and “christian-like”.

It’s only getting worse.

Historically, new technological advances have made life on Earth better for Humans but today’s “advancements” have turned too many into drugged, lazy, creatures who live only to meet their next immediate need at someone else’s expense.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you doesn’t work with Evil.

It simply makes one a target, then a victim.

Yet, do unto others as they have done unto you won’t work for me either.

We aren’t animals.

As I sat down to write this column the message became clear.

One does not stop molestation, rape and murder by committing these acts, nor does one stop these things by “taking them by the hand”.

We do what AMERICANS have done for almost three centuries.

From the crossing of the Delaware, to the swamps of South Carolina, from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, from Normandy to the Mekong Delta.

We give thanks, say grace and pray that we are indeed on God’s side.

Then we grab them by the neck and “hang em high” for all the world to see.

We may laugh at the foolish but we cannot suffer the fools any longer.

Bend Over For Beto

Let’s recap the week.

The Democrats threw everything, including the kitchen sink, at Brett Kavanaugh.

Hopefully Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh remembers who it was that tried to ruin his life and who came to his defense.

These United States can’t afford anymore John Obamacare Roberts Liberals also known as “Compassionate Conservatives”.

While the Days Of Our Lives progressed, Keith Ellison and Cory Booker continued to be ignored by the #MeToo movement (I guess photos and an actual admission aren’t enough proof) Elizabeth Cheekbones Warren was found to have claimed tens of thousands of dollars in clothing donations that never happened (probably lots of tunics, buckskin dresses and moccasins) and Barack Obama decided that costing the Democratic Party over one thousand collective seats in government wasn’t enough and sent out a list of endorsements.

A few names stood out of this motley crew.

Stacey Abrams, Governorship, Georgia.

Ben Jealous, Governorship, Maryland.

Andrew Gillum, Governorship, Florida.

Kate Brown, Governorship, Oregon.

Abrams is reportedly hundreds of thousands of dollar in debt with fifty-thousand of it in, yep you guessed it, back taxes. She reportedly blames everyone including her parents, a sibling, student loans and credit card debt, like her MasterCard just jumped up and said, “Momma needs a new pair of shoes!”

Yes Georgians.  Let’s put this person in charge of your entire State.

Well done Barack.  Well done.

Jealous Ben had apparently forgotten he’d endorsed Bernie Sanders. When asked whether he was a Democratic Socialist he answered by swearing at the reporter and then denying the premise.

What was the reporter thinking asking a question that made perfect sense?

What I want to know is why didn’t anyone ask him if he agrees with Bernie that women fantasize about being raped simultaneously by three different men, or with his friend Louis Farrakhan, who wants all White people and Jews murdered?

Again Barry.  Well done.

Andrew Gillum, another self-proclaimed Progressive Democratic Socialist is somehow involved in an FBI corruption investigation in Tallahassee. My guess is someone looking suspiciously like James Coomey will eventually say Gillum was “grossly negligent” but because of his ability to “wipe away everything with a cloth” he’ll be allowed to continue forward in the election.

You are on fire Soetoro.

Finally we have Kate Brown of Oregon.

Among her many outstanding qualities, like forcing Sanctuary State Status down Oregonians throats, allowing the homeless to urinate, defecate, and fornicate in the streets of Portland, and supporting ANTIFA, she apparently is the Queen of Redactions.

According to Forbes, Katie Bar The Door Brown “redacted nearly 4,000 items from her official state calendar” and “redacted calendar entries on nine out of every ten days since taking office.”

Someone needs to get Downtown Brown an eraser.

She also “is flouting Oregon open records laws and blurring the line between the taxpayer-funded agency resources and her campaign activities. Furthermore, Brown used public funds for private purposes – during her time as secretary of state and as governor.”

I guess she figured if Obama could take all those vacations, she could too.

We will know in a month but I have a sneaking suspicion some of these candidates are going down in flames. A few may end up in prison which will only add to the Obama Legacy.

As bad as these endorsees are, and they are horrible humans, imagine how bad a Democrat had to be to not get the Abomination’s endorsement.

Dianne Chinese Spy Feinstein didn’t make the cut. I’m a little surprised Barry didn’t take this gimme.  Even Republicans are going to vote for Feinstein. There is no way Kevin Ponce La Raza De Leon can be allowed to win.

The aforementioned woman beater Ellison was left off the list.

I’m sure Obama will find some time during the day to face Mecca with Keith.

Finally Robert Francis O’Rourke, otherwise known as Beto, was ignored by the Iranian sympathizer. Could it be because Fredo Beto was caught driving drunk and then attempting to leave the scene of an accident?

How very Liberal of him.

Cause major problems for others and then flee before you are held accountable for your actions.

Sounds very Obama as well.

Still it seems a bit hypocritical of the leader of the Choom Gang. I mean come on Barry. You promised flexibility to Vladimir, you could at least genuflect for Beto.

That could be the new campaign slogan for Robert Francis.

Barry, Biden, Bezos and Bill want the Lonestar State to Bend Over for the Beto Male.

Fortunately more registered citizens voted for a guy named Cruz, than the entire Democratic field.

As the signs say.

Don’t mess with Texas.

You can’t be both

This week was quite busy.

A good week but busy.

I spent very little time paying attention to the stupidity in our government and on our airwaves.  When I finally sat down to write I perused the internet for a bit and then went to work.

Keeping up with the imbeciles doesn’t take long and boy howdy the crazies were out. There is a song that says the “freaks come out at night” but due to the Democratic Party currently existing, the freaks are out twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Come on now Jason. Freaks have feelings too.

Do they?

Today’s “Progressives” believe that no one should own more than they need ( I love this concept.  Who decides what each person needs?) yet they take the money of Soros, Bloomberg, Zuckerberg, Gates, Steyer and Bezos.

All Progressives who prove everyday money doesn’t make the man or a man.

Interesting theory indeed.

I won’t bother pointing out the lunacy or the hypocrisy.

To speak with a Democrat-Socialist-Liberal-Communist or whatever they are calling themselves these days is a practice in stupidity.

Humans who believe in these fantasies are actually devolving.

I could try to explain Abraham Maslow but as simple as it is, it is beyond, the simple minded.

I could try to explain Adam Smith but sheep will never stray from the herd let alone read books filled with knowledge.

I could try to explain the United States Constitution, but the greatest written document pertaining to Freedom of all times, is incomprehensible to them.

They think promote the general welfare means a bump in their EBT cards.

The Liberal Resisters are freaking out about a man named Kavanaugh, in a case where this is no case. No proof, no documentation, no smoke, nothing, but Keith Ellison and his 911 calls, that have fire, apparently don’t matter.

The second in command at the DNC, behind La Raza Tom Perez, has reportedly ASSAULTED a woman, and there is telephonic proof, yet the Progressives want to delve into a guy most of them already confirmed at an earlier date. They want to focus on the “behavior” of a man that they “knew about” for months, and had him directly in front of them for the world to see, yet never asked a single question about this issue.

THAT’S WHY WE HAVE CONFIRMATION HEARINGS.

The Democrats are squarely on the side of the Russians, Sharia, La Raza and Louis Farrakhan.

Those who doubt that statement are beyond help and those beyond help due to their own volition deserve nothing from us.

They’ve earned what’s coming to them.

Progressives see their children murdered and defend the murderers by portraying their own bigotry in saying “Hispanics make good Mexican food.”

What about the Latinos?

I guess the Libs didn’t get the message. Taco Bell was voted the best Mexican food in America and that food is killing millions…one day at a time.

In Florida however, in order to make a Run for the Border, one apparently must speak Spanish to receive their cardiac taco or belly busting burrito.

No bigotry there.

Lots of obesity but no bigotry to be sure.

Ay Carumba!!!

As if this all wasn’t enough Rod “Rat Face” Rosenstein reportedly offered to “wear a wire” and secretly tape President Trump. It appears a village has lost their idiot but onto more “pressing” matters the usage of “Rat Face” seems to have not angered anyone at all, unlike the usage of another animal to describe the woman who had her hand up Obama’s skirt known as Valerie Jarrett.

Rats, horse faces and fish lips are fair game but monkeys, apes, and gorillas (unless you were the Sunni Moslem known as Muhammed Ali) are out of line?

Interesting indeed.

In summation to whom much is given much is expected. We have given too much for too long and had our expectations thrown in our face.

It’s time to be clear, to be concise, to sound the clarion call.

The enemy of Freedom, of Justice, of these United States can no longer be contradicted.

Thy name is Liberal.

Time to build the pyre and remove the disease.

To do this we must be sure who is on which side. To do this we must retake our verbiage.

Hope can no longer be a four letter word.

We must also gather all the different categories, that have splintered from our righteous cause, and bring them under one name for one purpose.

The continued Freedom of ourselves, our land, our country.

We hold these truths to be self-evident.

On one side we have the Liberal-Progressives.

On the other we have AMERICANS.

One or the other.

You can’t be both.

No hyphens wanted.

No hyphens allowed.

Let the lines be drawn

A conversation crossed my path recently. The subject was Progressive women.  It went something like this.

“The Woodstock freaks all wanted to be equal to a man. Smoke like men, drink like men, fornicate like men. So they did.  Then they decided that men needed to be like women. Men wearing dresses, getting mani-pedis, we’ve even been told men now have a time of the month. Fine, but what I don’t understand is all the noise. In my day women were the ones “sharing their feelings” and men were the ones who lived the lives of quiet desperation. Now the men run around whining, crying, and taking knees. When are the women going to do their part and keep their mouth shut like we used to! You wanted to be equal to a man now suck it up buttercup.”

So many Liberal dreams.  So little Liberal reality.

Progressives are so confused they want college students to verbally ask “would you like to have sex with me” and receive an affirmative “yes” before young men and women living in co-ed dorms do, what young men and women living in co-ed dorms, do.

With today’s technology I think that is ridiculous.

They should have to pull out their cell phones and stare into the screen while recording both the question and the answer and then send it to their parents for approval. Why not? They aren’t adults until they turn 26 and aren’t responsible for their actions or their own healthcare.

Thanks Obama!

Thanks Thumbs Down McCain!

If a pregnancy occurs I think Mom and Dad should know how fifty-thousand a year in tuition/books/room and board turned into a grandchild that they will be raising into their seventies.

Let’s try another Progressive position.

We hear from Liberals constantly that the United States is broken and can only be fixed by Progressive policies. The two primary issues for this group are Health Care and Immigration.

According to Liberals both are broken and need to be fixed.

I completely agree.

In 1986 Ronald Reagan gave the Liberals BOTH of the things they are proclaiming to not be working.

We’ve had 30 plus years of this “theory” and it is very clear.

Amnesty and Free Health Care do not work.

Without the Federal Government’s ability to “borrow” over 20 trillion dollars, “free” medical care for the indigent and illegals would have disappeared a long time ago.

Amnesty or criminal compliance has created a system that rewards felonious behavior and has allowed tens of millions of humans to live here illegally without consequence.

Thanks Ronnie!

You should have listened to Nancy and Just Said No.

How about this Liberal position. Barack Obama took Jimmy Carter’s New Normal explanation about the economy and said that America would never return to 2 percent growth.  “Those jobs are gone” and “get used to it.”  Now with GDP taking off, unemployment at all-time lows for EVERYONE and the stock markets climbing WHILE interests rates are going higher, it appears Obama and his crew of boneheads want to give Hussein the credit.

HE TOLD YOU IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.

It’s now happening.

That’s like giving Bill Clinton credit for telling the truth.

Let’s move to the NFL where the owners are so greedy they cannot properly enforce rules for their employees. It’s gotten so bad the owner of the Miami Dolphins said all of their players would stand for the National Anthem before the season started. Now, I don’t watch the NFL and haven’t for a while, but reportedly no one in the NFL took a knee EXCEPT three morons on the MIAMI DOLPHINS.

What did the owner do?

Nothing.

I don’t blame the players. Between their collective “reported” measurement of intelligence barely equaling an 8th grade education, and the constant shots these guys take and have taken to the head, I’m surprised when a coherent sentence is uttered. Besides if you are lead by a Colon you are apt to be filled with excrement that nobody wants and needs to be flushed.

The billionaire owners on the other hand are one hundred percent cowards.

It is a fact that humans who happen to have white skin are killed by police in larger numbers than humans who happen to have black skin. It is also a fact that law enforcement is killed by humans who happen to have black skin in dramatically larger numbers than the other way around.

These are facts. Check your FBI stats.

Kaepernick is a liar, his “girlfriend” is a liar and Michael Brown was a street thug raised by trash who are now cashing checks off his dead body.

Speaking of liars Bob Woodward decided to quote Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as saying derogatory things about President Trump.  Woodward did so with the “anonymous” source. Both have denied his writings err rantings. I’m going to go with the Generals who’ve served America for decades unlike Woodward who appears to serve only himself. A few more idiotic statements from Bobby and we may have to look to reinstate Tricky Dick.

Most people don’t know this but a man named Jeffrey Immelt was selected by Barack Obama to be the head of his Economic Advisory Board during Obama’s Presidency.

The same Jeffrey Immelt who ran one of the largest corporations in the world into the ground.

That company is called General Electric.

GE finally dumped the Liberal idiot Immelt and is trying to claw its way back.

It’s going to be a long slog for them if they make it at all.

The United States on the other hand is moving swiftly here and abroad.

Yes we still have Bush and Obama’s twenty trillion in debt.

Yes interest rates are too low.

Yes we have too many Boomers turning sixty-five who have nothing but debt and dysfunction to show for their lives and yes we have tens of millions of foreign nationals here criminally living off of us while continuing to assault and murder our citizens.

Yes, yes and YES, but for those of us who look a tiny light has poked its way through.

I know its hard to see but these mid-term elections should tell us everything we need.

Americans will choose success or decide to wallow in failure.

Either way clarity will have occurred.

Let the lines be drawn.

Protection or Politics

Neil Gorsuch had a real opportunity.

Senator Orrin Hatch, interestingly enough, walked the Supreme Court Nominee right into Marbury versus Madison.  Gorsuch could have spent a significant amount of time providing knowledge (assuming he had some) or at least both sides of the argument in the 1803 case.

Instead he punted with a weak comment about not wanting to re-litigate the most important case in American Jurisprudence.

Gorsuch later decided to announce that “we are stuck with them” once judges are approved.

Of course this is false and is yet another example of the difference between an “educated” person and one with knowledge.

Finally, he was asked a wide variety of questions, that an ethical person, would answer the same way every time.

He responded to some, parsed others, and then fell back on I cannot comment on specific cases when something came up he didn’t want to answer.

This is called pulling a James Comey.

I wish I could say I am still surprised by Boomer Politicians, Media, etc., but after thousands of stupid comments and actions the only thing that I am surprised by anymore is our willingness to believe them.

I can hear the questions now.

What about Trump, Jason? Do you still support him?

Absolutely.

I’ve stated many times that although I support Donald Trump I do not support the Republican or Democratic Parties.

Trump is the first “non-politician” to be elected President in my lifetime.

Is Trump making mistakes?

Yes, but they are mistakes of assertion and trust, not passivity or ethics.

He currently trusts Reince Priebus, Paul Ryan and apparently James Comey.  These are mistakes, and because of these mistakes, the swamp isn’t being drained.

Neil Gorsuch was chosen by the Republican Establishment, and just like the rest of us, I doubt Donald Trump had ever heard of him until recently.

Some will say Gorsuch is a conservative, a Constitutionalist.

I listened to the man.  He isn’t even close to a Constitutionalist.

Now I am not a conservative.  I am an American but it is my understanding to be a “social conservative” one must definitely be pro-life and probably against gay marriage.

Gorsuch stated under oath both of these issues are settled law and in case some haven’t been paying attention they aren’t “settled” to the satisfaction of social conservatives.

Gorsuch isn’t a conservative.

He is a “compassionate conservative”.

Just like George W. Bush.

In other words a liberal.

Just like John Roberts.

An enabler of corruption, who “interprets” the Constitution, to make it fit whatever case is in front of them, is guaranteed the “right” outcome.

Under John Roberts, forcing Americans to purchase a product or financially penalize them through the Internal Revenue Service, was “constitutional”.

It is well past time to stop using attorneys/judges to fill our courts.  Constitutionally it is not a requirement.

Morally we cannot afford it anymore.

In roughly the same news cycle a young woman who has been called a “right-wing firebrand conservative” was asked a question about abortion.  She shocked many when she said she was for limited government and part of limited government was not having them in her home, her guns, or her body.

Tomi Lahren didn’t duck, parse, or ignore the question.  Furthermore she was consistent with her beliefs.  Limited government means limited government in all fashions on all subjects.

She was ripped by some in the “conservative” crowd and suspended from her job by her boss who among other things is a Never Trumper.

Now, Glenn Beck has every right as an employer to “suspend” Lahren for her comments, and depending upon how her contract is written, every right to fire her if he so desires.  I doubt he will, as Ms. Lahren, has passed Mr. Beck in the ratings department.

The reason I have paired these two items together is to show how one subject, abortion, is allowing the security of our country to weaken daily.

Advocates on both sides have stated many times in public, and even to me personally, that the protection of the unborn or the protection of a woman’s right to choose, is their number one issue.

More important than failing economic and legal systems that are causing the deaths of Americans daily.

More important than human trafficking that allows slavery to continue.

More important than National Security.

Because of this one issue, liberals have just enough “one issue supporters” to allow decades of criminality to not only “creep” in but overwhelm our schools, jails, prisons, hospitals, and social programs through amnesty and amnesty related programs like DACA.

Two potential DACA recipients were just picked up in a “sanctuary city” in Maryland for raping a fourteen year old girl at school.

Sadly it’s time to admit the truth.

We aren’t protecting anyone.

Born or not.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

In fact for America to survive and thrive it can’t be this way anymore.

“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me”.

Shoulder to shoulder.

Let the walk begin.

Why is the Federal Government forcing us to save then punishing us when we do?

Last century the United States Federal Government enacted a “new” program or in other words…creeping Democracy.

The program forced Americans to put money away for usage in their golden years.  It’s pretty easy to see the motivation.  The humans at the “top” didn’t think the humans at the “bottom” were smart or responsible enough to save their money.

Yes it really is that easy.  Of course this program is called Social Security.

For sake of this column let us accept their premise that some humans simply will not plan for their future.

That after 40 plus years of working they don’t have anything.

They experienced the “Bernanke Wealth Effect” rather than real wealth that creates capital.

Capital like property or “real” estate. After 40 plus years they haven’t a home, a car, cash, bonds, gold, or a hat to hang on the rack.  Fortunately Big Brother has been siphoning off a part of their wealth (as well as their employer’s wealth) and holding it in a nice safe place where it will be returned to them at a later date.

All’s well that ends well.  Big Brother’s safety net did its job never mind the fact that Big Brother forced it out of you and if you didn’t make it to the Golden Age Big Brother simply kept the money.

Now those of us with any common sense know all the money being extracted from employers and employees (not to mention the sole proprietor who pays both halves) is not being saved or held for us in a nice safe place.  It is being used to fund never ending wars, corruption, and bail outs (I’m sorry I said corruption already).

How do we know the money isn’t there?

Barack Obama told us so when he stated “Social Security Checks will not go out if the debt ceiling isn’t raised”.

Some will inquire as to the whereabouts of the money being removed from us right now in the name of Social Security.

See above aforementioned corruption, wars, etc.

Eventually there will come a day when the United States Government cannot raise the debt ceiling anymore.  When this happens economic triage will take place.  Whomever is in charge will have to make a decision as to importance of items that need to be paid.

On that list is the military and the U.S. bonds already sold or in other words:

National Security and the Full Faith and Credit of the United States.

I know for a fact the powers that be, Republican or Democrat, will pay the bonds first knowing full well if they don’t our currency will probably collapse.

Next will be the military although when this time does arrive I am fairly certain you will see “conscription” take place with those already in the service followed by “emergency” procedures requiring all soldiers to accept whatever means of payment the government chooses.

All Essential Federal Employees will fall under this directive as well.  The Non-Essential will be “laid off” until the “crisis” ends.  Social Security payments will first be dramatically reduced and then means testing will erase all for some.

This isn’t a worst case scenario.  This will happen eventually without massive changes to our systems and every politician and economist in D.C. knows it which brings me to my point of this entire column.

This collection of economic insanity that has already borrowed, spent, and borrowed more money than is ever going to be earned and then taxed, wants to punish, even further, those of us who have been SAVING OUR MONEY for our later years.

Their new goal is to push interest rates lower driving them into negative territory (already happening in parts of Europe) to force Americans to take their money out of our savings accounts and spend it thereby completely negating the entire purpose of Social Security…to save money for our later years.

I don’t care what you look like, believe in, or who you sleep with.  When your Congressman or Woman, or House Representative vote to raise the debt ceiling and do not stop the Federal Reserve’s criminality of suppression of interest rates and creation of negative rates while stealing our money (Social Security) that they’ve already spent and then force us to remove our money from banks by penalizing us for SAVING THE MONEY in the first place:

Your Freedom as you know it is at risk.

Whether you want to believe it or not.

Political Parties are the Past…Free the American Citizen

Simply put the definition of Democracy is the Majority ruling over the Minority.  You may get some pseudo-intellectuals (lawyers/professors)  pontificating around the edges but stripping away all the noise Democracy is about the Majority dictating to the Minority.

Those in the Majority think this is great…those in the Minority…not so much.

Let’s call it what it is.

Gang mentality.

Are there things worse than Democracy?

Sure.

Socialism, Communism, Islam (Sharia) are all worse than Democracy although one could factually argue that Democracy molds to whatever the majority dictates.

If the “majority” dictates that women are property or have second class status and can be legally beaten (Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc.) then it appears the usage of the word Democracy would be correct.

It makes one wonder about anyone in America calling themselves a Democrat, and for the record all of the countries just listed have one thing in common.

Their system is Islam, Sunni or Shiite majorities.

Is there anything better than Democracy?

I’m glad you asked.

Here in these United States it is called a Constitutional Republic.

A Constitutional Republic’s primary goal is to protect the rights of the Individual Citizen.

Not gangs known as Crips or Bloods, or groups known as Republicans or Democrats.

The purpose of the Constitutional Republic in America is to protect each AMERICAN citizen guaranteeing very specific rights that are beneficial to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Neither Democracy or a Constitutional Republic are animate or inanimate objects.

They are systems.

I’ve mentioned many times Freedom and Oppression are the only two cultures in human existence which is why multiculturalism fails so miserably.

No sane person will willingly mix or “diversify” Freedom and Oppression.

No sane human will trade being dictated to on Mondays and Wednesdays to be free on Fridays.

No sane human will barter being beaten or raped on Tuesdays and Thursdays to be safe on Saturday.

We want to be free and safe every day of the week and twice on Sunday to fulfill our dreams, to strive, succeed, fail, and strive again. To pursue happiness.

Under these two cultures, as the human animal as evolved or changed, systems have been created.

Economic systems like Capitalism and the aforementioned Socialism and Communism have spread all over the world as humans require freedom from other humans…or bow to enslavement.

The reason Capitalism is so much more powerful than all other stated economic systems isn’t complicated.

It is ingrained in the individual to take care of themselves.

Capitalism is the only economic system where humans are motivated intrinsically rather than extrinsically…and that’s why it works.

All humans are born with free will and very specific needs to be met.  Both free will and our needs are met individually.

Your extra consumption of water in the mountains isn’t going to quench the thirst of someone standing in the desert.

Your eating dessert isn’t going to hurt your neighbor three doors down with type two diabetes.

Your usage of an umbrella in a rain storm doesn’t stop the guy down the street, without one, from getting wet.

The human animal comes with specific emotional coping techniques to allow pain to be handled.  Denial and rationalization almost always come first.

Responsible humans move through these relatively quickly and grasp acceptance through TRUTH.  The truth isn’t always pretty but it never changes.

It can be counted on.

Truth isn’t hypothetical.

Truth is universal.

Truth is so easy to see and more importantly even easier to feel.

We know truth.  We embrace truth.

Truth is the only permanent solace known to man.

Time to rip off the bandage in one giant pull.

This is the TRUTH.

The only thing keeping the Democratic Party alive is…the Republican Party.

The only thing keeping the Republican Party alive is…US.

When I refer to US I mean those of us working in the private sector (Capitalism) creating the profits that allow the country to run.

Yes the military is important (incredibly) and a requirement to remain free, but without real profit, that is then taxed, a military cannot be properly maintained (which is why the debt is putting us in an increasingly dangerous place).

Those same profits created are being used against US to hire more “government” workers on many levels.  This increases the size of the “public unions” and requires each new hire to pay dues.  These dues are then funneled back to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) where that money is spread all over the country trying to keep the Democratic Party alive.  Yes New York public union dues do end up in swing-states like Colorado and Florida every election cycle.

The current Democratic Party is dead.

They just don’t know it yet.

The Millenials hate the Democrats almost as much as they hate the Republicans.

Almost half of all Millenials are beginning to call themselves Independents not knowing there isn’t actually an Independent Party.  There is an American Independent and the Independent American Party but they are so small, and not recognized beyond a couple of States, no one knows who they are.

The overwhelming majority in America abhors the Democratic Party.

There’s just nowhere else for them to turn because the Republican Party is simply awful.

The largest Democratic State in the country is California.

In California’s last election it was reported less than 20 percent of eligible citizens even bothered to vote.

Less than 1 in 5.

Or put another way more than 4 out of 5 Californians didn’t even try.  Didn’t hang a chad, mark an x, write in Charlie Brown…and Charlie would have been so much better than Jerry.

Californians don’t love the Democratic Party…they just don’t have anywhere else to turn.

So instead of voting for either party they are choosing in massive numbers to stay home.

The Republican Party has been so bad for so long it lost…California!

How do you lose the largest economy in the country and do nothing about it?

How do you lose 40 million people, 55 electoral votes, dozens of House Representatives, 2 Senators, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the greatest piece of land the Earth has ever created…and do nothing!!!

How can you call yourself a Political Party when the votes of more than eighty percent of the citizens in the Golden State are available and you cannot put together a cogent plan to get ANY of them!!!

The truth is this.  Most of America hates both parties.  Most of America has decided to stay home on election night.  Some out of laziness.  Others out of apathy.  Many to send a message. But an overwhelming amount would jump into the fray overnight if they had someone, anyone to believe in.

That’s why we are here.

To serve America.

To replace Democrats and Republicans with AMERICANS who swear their allegiance to country not party.

Doors continue to open.  We have to be ready to move through them.

If Donald Trump is removed from the Republican ticket or deems he isn’t being treated fairly he will presumably strike out on his own which will “split the Republican vote”.

If the Democrats decide Hillary Clinton is finished the reported potential combination of Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren may be chosen by the DNC.

Bernie Sanders has already made noise about going “independent” which will split the vote.

The Party system is dead.  America has had more than enough of debt, crime, and lies but the individual isn’t sure where to turn.

This is OUR time!

I will be in Nevada and Arizona next week followed by Detroit on the weekend of the 11th, 12th, and 13th of September where I will meet with AMERICANS whose loyalty is to these United States.

The 12th will be spent seeing Detroit and its suburbs and the 13th will be spent on Cave Radio with Tony Schwartz and his show Freedomworx.

Because it does!!!

The show will start at 2:00 and end at 5:00 Eastern Time.  I will be on the air with Tony for three hours after which I will catch the next flight out and return home to California.

I was one voice two years ago.  I am still one voice but I am willing to take my voice wherever it is necessary at my own expense.  I will never ask or accept any money but I need your voices!

The Parties are the past.  Democracy is dead.

It is time for the Individual to embrace the two systems that have never let them down.

Capitalism and The Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America!

Things are lining up for the unknown American to step into the fray and reclaim and restore our country.

Three percent…or ten million unknown Americans shoulder to shoulder should do the trick.

Join me brothers and sisters.

One voice at a time.

A child may lead us

Recently as I finished speaking with an office manager at a local successful business I was asked about my trip to Oklahoma.

“I’m heading out to meet Americans face to face.  We’ve got some problems to fix.”

Behind me a young yet powerful voice resonated through the room.

“Barack Obama hates Americans,” said the voice.

I stood very still and continued to look forward.  I could tell the voice was that of a young girl, probably no more than ten years old.  I thought about that statement for a second.  Barack Obama hates Americans.  Four words from the mouth of a child.

Barack Obama hates Americans.

Is it really that simple?

Barack Obama’s father was a Muslim who despised the USA.  His mother married another Muslim and according to his own book took him outside the country where he spent many of his formative years.  Without regurgitating his entire premise Obama’s story is filled with his fawning over humans whose skin is one color, or practice Islam, and his contempt is very clear for those who don’t fit into this narrow mindset.

But is Obama the problem or the culmination of a small group of humans who used deceit, manipulation, depravity, and the courts to offer (what many now call sheep) a false hope?  An opportunity to cry “Yes we can” knowing those that supported this agenda were grasping at straws, trying to rationalize decades of personal failure that included divorce, drug usage, debt, and obesity while abdicating their responsibility as an Individual and placing their desires in the ever waiting hands of government.

Another comment from a different source was made about Obama.  “When he is gone the press are going to crush him.  They are afraid to do anything right now.”

If the press are so much in fear of what Barack Obama will do to them, the country we know as the beacon of freedom no longer exists.  The importance of a free press is stated very clearly in the 1st Amendment.

It’s right there with the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion, and no Islam is not protected under the 1st Amendment as the United States Constitution was never meant to protect Systemic Human Oppression.

You cannot oppress women and children and hide under the guise of religion.

At least not in America…yet.

I communicate with people all over America on a daily basis.  The one thing everyone has in common is a general uneasiness.  Border security, debt, threats from Islamic sources that the FBI has admitted they cannot keep up with, and a lack of respect for our military coming from the White House are all causing concern, fear, and in many cases rage.

As much as I abhor George W. Bush (and I do) his time as President may be marked as a man who was in over his head and lied to cover his lack of courage and/or intelligence.  But for the eight years the man was in office I never heard an American say “George Bush hates Americans” (no I don’t consider Kanye West an American…he’s a Kardashian) although plenty of citizens said they hated George Bush.

Now of course Obama and his supporters will say this isn’t true.  That his waiting for five days to lower Old Glory to half staff after the murder of our military while almost instantaneously rainbow lighting the White House was just a smidgen of an oversight.

That his using the IRS to persecute and prosecute Americans is all a fantasy.

That access by the American Press to anything Obama related is comparable to “Nixonian” levels.

That Brian Terry wasn’t murdered on the border by a gun put in play by the Obama administration.

That the fictional story about a video causing the attack in Benghazi that played out at his directive by Susan Rice trying to cover up the deaths of Americans including the assassination of our Ambassador was a misunderstanding.

So…is the child correct?

Barack Obama hates Americans?

For those of us who think critically…it is impossible to disagree.

But why?  Why would Obama hate the country that has given him EVERYTHING?

I’ll bet his college transcripts would tell us…if they weren’t sealed.

Facebook isn’t a Constitutional Right.

The truth can be an interesting thing. When embraced it can bring strength and peace. I make it a point to write or speak about things that are true. Unfortunately some people simply cannot handle the truth because it doesn’t fit their narrative. Let me give an example. The 1st Amendment guarantees a couple of things. One of these things is the freedom of speech. Many months ago a very troubled soul showed up on my page with a ridiculous rant.

Without having any information at all and having never read my book this person proceeded to rant and rave and lie…about me.

After I blocked him he jumped to my second page. Upon banning him from there he spent time attacking me on Amazon. Apparently that wasn’t enough because he jumped on our new page where I banned him again.

Some people need to get a life already.

If you don’t agree with what I’m saying then write your own book, give hundreds of copies away, spend countless hours communicating with citizens across America, and tens of thousands of dollars.

Of course you will also need to create a new tax plan that will work, (done), an immigration policy that will work (done), and not accept any campaign contributions. This means you will have to pay for all of this yourself.

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Now close your pie hole, crawl back from which you came and have a Coke and a smile!

I’ve had this happen a few times. In the beginning I’ve shared some of the “fan mail” I’ve received. I know as our voice gets louder the target on me will become larger. I actually look forward to this. It’s how we know we are making a difference. If I am never attacked it means no one cares or can hear us. I have two very positive stories about our voices being heard but first I want to finish my point.

One detractor of mine whined that I was violating their freedom of speech because I didn’t answer their written silliness. They couldn’t be more wrong.

The freedom of speech guarantees you won’t be persecuted or prosecuted by the government for speaking out against them.

It has nothing to do with whether or not I will give someone free therapy.

Facebook could remove me at any time and they would not be violating my freedom of speech. They would be unwise to do so because their business plan calls for users and more importantly users who spend money spreading their message (me).

But they could block me tomorrow and it wouldn’t be a violation of the 1st Amendment. The only way it would be is if the government forced them to silence me but even then Facebook wouldn’t be to blame. The government would. Just like driving, Facebook is not a right.

If anyone comes on here and lies, is profane, or attacks me or any of you…they are removed permanently. I am not here for social hour. I am here because the debt has gotten worse and more Americans die or are sold into slavery because our border is wide open. As I’ve said many times if you have people who aren’t beneficial to freedom, and your life, then remove them.

We don’t have time for people who throw around fictional constitutional rights. We have to focus on the very real attacks coming at the 1st Amendment (Lois Lerner/IRS) and the 2nd Amendment. These are very real things. If you think my not listening to you because you lie or deleting you from MY page is unconstitutional you don’t have the good sense God gave you.

Wake up! I want like minds…ten million of them. Not whiny, pseudo intellects who won’t put their names or their money on the line. If you think you have a plan…step up!

Otherwise pipe down small fry. No one cares what you think.

Okay onto the two positive stories. A few weeks ago I was talking to a guy at the gym. We started talking about the debt, the border, and Obama. I told him he should check out our website. When I told him the name he paused and said,”I just heard that website on the radio.” I smiled. When complete strangers are hearing about us we are making difference.

Story two: A fan of Late Bird and our message was talking to some new co-workers during a break. Politics was the discussion and the fan mentioned my name. The co-worker said, “I’ve heard of that guy,” and went to their Facebook page on their phone and scrolled through one of their groups. Finding what they were looking for the co-worker showed the fan of Late Bird a video of mine that was done months ago.

It’s a small world because YOU keep spreading the word. It is you who are making a difference by continuing to share 2,3,4 and sometimes 50 times. It’s working. Great job!

One day, one voice, one American at a time.

Shoulder to shoulder.

This is our country.
