Firing with both fists

Courage is not assertion without fear.

Courage is assertion in spite of fear and comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.

I was reminded of this a few days ago while having a conversation.

The individual I was speaking with was making jokes after receiving yet another round of chemotherapy.  Because this person is incredibly private and humble, and would be embarrassed by my words, I will respect their wishes of privacy and not use their name.

Their life on the other hand is one to share.

You see this is the kind of person who creates safe spaces with his presence.

Children and dogs love him because they instinctively know they are secure and protected.

This is the kind of person who enlisted in the Army at seventeen and became a medic.

Always looking out for others.

He owned businesses, raised a family, loves his children, grandchildren, and of course his wife.  He’d give you the shirt off his back, the money from his pocket, and has done so time and time again.

Of course if he was reading this now he wouldn’t understand what all the fuss was about and would say something like, “This is what we are supposed to do.  I’m supposed to work hard.  I’m supposed to raise my children and nobody else better be loving my wife.  You know what I’m saying?”

Yes my fellow American I am picking up what you are putting down.

He’d tell you that he isn’t special (he is) rather he is lucky.  Lucky to be a citizen of the greatest country ever.  Lucky to have had 69 years (and counting) on this Earth.  He sees his exhaustion, nausea, dizziness, and pain as a good sign that the chemo is working.

Not one complaint, not one bitter word, not a scintilla of why me?

Although he doesn’t eat sugar, and his appetite has almost disappeared, he still makes birthday cakes for loved ones.

The reason I am telling this story is to show the strength of the human spirit.

The strength of one man unwilling to bend.

Unwilling to break.

When he was told he had cancer his first sentence was “Great. When can we start doing what needs to be done.”

In boxing terms he bit down on his mouthpiece and lunged forward firing with both fists.

Cancer has no idea but it doesn’t have a chance.

It picked the wrong guy.

We have our own cancer in America these days.  It’s called liberalism.  It has overtaken the Democratic Party and done a pretty good job infiltrating the Republican Party as well.

Standing in front of America is a 69 year old man whose body is being filled with drugs aimed at killing the cancer.

Dizzy, nauseous, and exhausted he stands at the ready to make sure we do “what needs to be done”.

He’s also a man filled with knowledge.

In other words he voted for Trump.

Shoulder to shoulder America.

It’s time to bite down on the mouthpiece and lunge forward.

Firing with both fists.

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.

Security starts at home

Decades ago I hired a friend of one of my employees. The corporation I worked for wanted growth and to grow more bodies were needed. The new hire was average at best but again the company wanted growth so I stuck with him. One morning it was brought to my attention the aforementioned employee threw a temper tantrum and punched a hole through a wall in our conference room.

I took a look at the hole, found the guy, fired him immediately and escorted him to his car.

I didn’t try to analyze him. I didn’t try to understand his problem. I didn’t offer him multiple solutions to whatever his issue was.

He’d created a situation that required a response.

His behavior put the safety of the other employees, our customer base, and the business in general, at risk.

My response was swift and enforced the “law”.

To his credit he realized his mistake and left without further incident.

The overwhelming majority of my employees were thrilled with my decision as order had been immediately restored and the few who weren’t knew if they broke the “law” they would also lose their jobs.

The need for “security” by the human animal is only superseded by water, food, and shelter.

Currently “security” is something humans across the planet do not feel they have because of one particular issue.

Mass migration.

Brexit wasn’t about leaving the EU. Brexit was about stopping the massive migration of Islam into the United Kingdom.

Donald Trump wasn’t elected because he is a genius contractor worth billions.

Trump was elected to stop the massive migration of humans coming from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, China, and any country that practices Sharia Law.

Security.

For those of you who doubt this we only have to return to the early Primaries of the Republican Party. Trump was in the bottom half, when he said on the stage for all to hear, that he would build a great wall and start removing humans here illegally.

Then candidate Trump went from the last half of the pack to the Leader and never looked back.

Security, Security, Security.

Abraham Maslow did us a tremendous service when he articulated the primary needs of the human animal.

As I have covered many times that the Human Animal and Human Being are two completely different things I won’t do so today.

The Progressive-Democratic-Socialist-La Raza-BLM-CAIR Party has just elected a new leader who believes in “The Race” and the eventual overthrow of a portion of the United States through…massive migration from Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras.

An open border concept until La Raza has enough of “The Race” to remove the United States Constitution.

Sounds crazy huh?

What’s crazy is it has been happening for decades and Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, and Obama have embraced it with both hands with massive amnesties, financial, medical, and educational support.

How is America paid back?

By the Mexican Central Bank reporting that almost 25 BILLION American Dollars left the United States in 2016 to land in their institutions and has been happening for years.

In other words incredible wealth is LEAVING our economy to be spent in a country that is not only a failed State but openly traffics in humans, narcotics, weapons and is controlled by drug cartels.

Yes, we are funding our own demise.

For many, that 25 BILLION number, looks oddly familiar.  There is a reason for that.

That number is reportedly what it would take to build the Wall.

So if we stop providing water, food, shelter, education, legal representation and employment for illegals (who are removing the circulation of money inside the United States) and employ Americans we will easily have more than enough to enforce the law and secure the country in less than one year.

Sounds so easy doesn’t it?

It is.

In fact we have a phrase for this.

It’s called enforcing the law.

For those in Local, State, or Federal government who will not uphold their oaths indictments must occur.

Immediately.

If you don’t know now you know.

One day in high school I was informed that someone I was already not a fan of made a derogatory comment about me and my family. The next day I found the individual in the hallway between classes and asked if they indeed did say this.

Let’s just say it was more of a statement than a question in the way that if the answer was yes I was going to have a very physical reaction.

“Whoa whoa whoa Jay just wait a minute,” came the response.

The individual in front of me backed up a step as I took one forward.  Their fear was very clear.  I’ve never understood humans who choose to run their mouths and then won’t fight.

Eventually someone is going to call their bluff.

For this individual the time was happening now.  His fear lessened my anger a bit allowing compassion to creep in.

That compassion almost cost me big time later in life.

A story for another time.

I gave him an option.  Apologize or sow what you have reaped.  It wasn’t as smooth as that.  Most of it was profane.  He readily accepted the option and made his amends.

I was reminded of this story as I thought about what is happening in our country.

How many warnings do we have to give before the only option left is one no one wants yet is the only option left?

The debt grows everyday.  Our “justice system” is so absurd Executive Orders are now being illegally struck down.  Cops are still dying.  Humans in black masks and attire are hitting people with sticks.  Anti-American men and women are calling for a Civil War.

I’m always struck by the absurdity of using the terms Civil and War together.

“War! What is it good for?” Absolutely nothing!”

I’d “say it again” but those that need to hear it won’t.

Those that have seen War didn’t need to hear it the first time.

Yet here we are.

The United States has been at War for almost two decades with no end in sight. We now have the aforementioned America haters rioting, looting, and abusing others.

Our systems are all under control of “bureaucrats” whom are protected by Public Unions and Politicians that protect illegal entry and overt criminality all over the nation.

California has been hit with rain, mudslides, and now the evacuation of almost 200,000 citizens from Oroville and surrounding towns as the second largest man made reservoir/dam in the State is suffering from “erosion”.

Erosion in California is defined as the Democratic Party ignoring decade old warnings about everything.

Pretty soon CalPERS will be called erosion.

Jerry Brown and the Democrats (still talking about drought while having money for Sanctuary Cities and Bullet Trains but cannot rebuild the worst roads in the country) have allowed the most important infrastructure in the State (water) to literally crumble.

Then again do they have the money?

Brown and the Democrats have now sent a request to the Federal Government for “emergency funds”.  The same Democrats that have called Trump a lying, bigoted, racist, homophobic misogynist.  The same Liberals that blocked a LEGAL order to keep humans from countries that harbor, foment, or create terrorism, out.  The same Liberals that are ranting about war and the Impeachment of Trump.

Barely a month in and we are hearing WAR and IMPEACHMENT.

The question AMERICANS are having across our country is how much more?  How much more are we willing to take?

What needs to happen before we leave our homes, our streets, our towns, cities, and States?

Where do we go to deal with the degradation and disease that is strangling our way of life?

I’ve looked at this from every angle I can imagine and contemplated the probability of a wide variety of possibilities.

The only scenario that appears on the list is Congress trying to Impeach, Convict, and Remove President Trump.

If this scenario ever hits the House of Representatives that will be the time.

The time for Idaho Farmers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Wyoming Cowboys.

The time for Michigan Autoworkers, West Virginia Coal Miners, and Texas Rangers.

The time for those known as Deputy, as Officer, and those known as Citizen.

The time for those known as Veteran.

It will be the time for those known as American to come together in Washington D.C.

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.”

Sadly it appears the arena is being created.

In this particular time in the world, the credit will not matter, but those in the arena certainly will.

I hope and pray this day doesn’t happen but this is far as it goes.

The removal of Trump is a continuance of the nightmare from which we awakened back in November.

We can never allow that to happen.

As a now deceased “poet” once stated:

“If you don’t know now you know.”

Ninth Circuit Circus

With all the insanity and illegality happening in the courts these days I thought it pertinent to again cover how our system works and doesn’t work. The idea of Democracy is to serve the majority which eventually leads to Tyranny.

This is the culmination of Socratic Theory.

A Republic or in our case a Constitutional Republic is meant to protect very specific Rights of the Individual. Specific Rights stated in our Constitution not the collective rantings of Norway, China, or Saudi Arabia. Pretty soon the Colonel Sanders crowd will be calling themselves Sharia Socialists and telling us all how Stalin and Mao were misunderstood.

Health care, health insurance, education, or lack thereof are not Rights regardless of what anyone thinks.

Yes portions of Democracy were kept in the creation of a Republic but Madison & Company were very clear.

These United States are not a Democracy.

Article 4. Section 4.

We are the evolution of Democratic tendencies (group think), into the Protection of again, the Individual.  This was suppose to stop the train from derailing into Tyranny.  Of course too many in America have no concept of this process including our politicians. Yes we are a measurement of our elected “leadership” and yes that is currently a very sad statement.

Generation after generation we have been told that our Republic has three co-equal branches of government. Most have no idea where this concept originated but they are more than willing to continue to repeat it.

This is Aristotle’s model, later built on by Montesquieu.

Both Madison and Jefferson knew this was behaviorally incorrect and Madison specifically went about securing a system that protected I over We. As I’ve written in the past Congress was meant to have most of the authority. Many will refer to this as the power of the purse. This is partially correct.

The reason we know Congress was meant to have more authority over the other branches is very clear.

The Power of Impeachment, Conviction and Removal resides in the House and Senate.

This is legislative not criminal authority and expressly allows Congress to remove the President and members of the Federal Judiciary.

Neither the Judiciary or Executive Branches have this authority over Congress.

We weren’t meant to be ruled by a tiny group of judges (oligarchy) or a King (monarchy).

We weren’t meant to be ruled at all.

The power resides in the House, the system closest to the People, to impeach.

The authority then moves to the Senate, the “deliberative” body, for conviction and removal.

The Framers even built in a check and balance within Congress.

Thankfully they did as Jefferson’s concern of “despots” ruling America has risen to dangerous levels.

Our last three Presidents should have all been impeached, convicted, and removed.

Clinton was impeached but not convicted and removed.

Because they weren’t, our courts are filled with horrendous appointees, who believe they are untouchable.

They aren’t.

It’s time to replace the Ninth Circuit who among other things completely ignored the rule of “standing”.

Of even greater need is the removal and replacement of the Supreme Court.

John Roberts is a great place to start.

The removal of Sotomayor and Kagan is an even better ending.

The Conundrum of CalExit

I was twenty-one and talking in the kitchen with a married couple from whom I’d just rented a room. This was necessary as I had  transferred to a California State University to finish my baseball career and graduate.  As it’d been a long day I decided to call it a night.  Barely into my room I heard a large roar outside my window.  Looking out I couldn’t see anything as the roar continued to dissipate and then return.

I exited my room and headed to the front door where I stepped outside just in time to see a police helicopter almost skim the roof of the two story apartment complex while yelling over the loudspeaker to “return to your homes”.

This seemed to go on for a while before gun shots rang out.

A little later police knocked on the door and asked me if I’d heard anything.  I told them about the helicopter and the gunshots.  They said thank you and moved to the rest of the apartments.

It was 1992 and my first night in San Bernardino California.

Yep the same San Berdu (as it was referred to by the locals) that was struck by terrorists decades later.

Now to be accurate (not interested in fair) I enjoyed my time at California State University San Bernardino.  The campus was nice, many of my professors were excellent, my coach was a dream to play for, and I was introduced to Socrates, John Locke, Abraham Maslow and the Gambler’s Fallacy.

Continuing the accuracy requires me to say my apartment complex was nice enough and walking distance to the school.  The rest of San Bernardino was like most cities in Southern California’s inland empire.

Packed housing structures and businesses, crowded streets and highways, with just enough graffiti, trash, and crime to signify gang presence.

In other words a hole.

25 years later.  Things haven’t improved.  Sadly this is a microcosm of what was once the Great State of California and brings me to my point.

Over the last month I’ve received questions or comments from all over America asking about the infamous CalExit.

Freedom loving Americans see what appears to be roving gangs of Democrats marauding through the streets screaming to take the REPUBLIC of California and leave the most famous REPUBLIC in the world.

It is here that irony writes itself.

I’m not sure which is of greater absurdity.  Democrats living in Republics or legal aged adults who believed Bernie Sanders was going to provide them all free healthcare and college.

CNN covered CalExit like it was the Battle of the Bulge ( who knew CNN could cover something other than missing planes and whatever Hillary told them to) and attempted to capture the moment by asking a guy, who’d spent too much time eating fast food, his opinion.

It might have been entertaining to hear however his 50 yard walk was more than his lungs could bear.

I wonder if the Democrats are giving out free exercise too.

If you are sensing a bit of amusement emanating on the page you would be correct.

California is going to leave the United States?

Nope.

The many legal and procedural hoops that would have to be attained for any State to leave is overwhelming.

Because of this I am not going to even bother walking down that road.

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

First it is called Secession Liberals.

Not Succession.

The last time the act of secession was attempted it ended badly in Sherman’s March.  The War Between the States was the most brutal war in American History.  The United States was split down the middle.  Brothers against brothers.

This was a hard time lived by even harder people on both sides.

The Walking Dead in California known as Liberals are not hard people.

They are a collection of participation trophy recipients strung out on dope and cloves whom are so laughably recognizable Jack in the Box created commercials about their incessant two a.m. taco runs.

I doubt a majority of them can spell California let alone EXIT.

Abraham Maslow is shaking his head while Socrates is nodding and saying, “I warned you about Democracy”.

Yes you did.

Any attempt by “Californians” to break away from the U.S. would be met with force.

I was born and raised in California.  I’ve competed, been educated, and served in Law Enforcement in California.

With all that said my Pledge of Allegiance is to the United States of America.

I am an AMERICAN.

If a bunch of drugged out Timothy Leary followers want to join hands with CAIR and La Raza have at it.

It will be the shortest lived attempt at “Succession” in human history.

There are plenty of Americans just like me all over California, especially Northern.

If for some reason the Jack in the Box crew et al isn’t dealt with in 48 hours I’m sure there is plenty of help all across this country more than willing to drive the one celled amoebas back into the Pacific Ocean.

We can call it community outreach and climate repair.

I can just see it now.

Lighters, bongs, and Che Guevara T-shirts all waving over their heads in surrender, like the worst participation trophies ever, while huddled in each others arms clamoring for safety pins and safer spaces.

Okay let us return from fantasy land and give you the real reason California will never secede.

The Democratic Party would never allow it.

Without California the Party of Tyranny would cease to exist.

All of a sudden California secession doesn’t sound so bad to everyone NOT in California.

Don’t ya just love the smell of a good conundrum in the morning?

Hot sauce Clinton, Under attack Williams, and Felon Fattah

These days most of the headlines on the internet have no value.

The actual columns are worse.

Nothing quite like the press, who got everything wrong during the Presidential election, trying to explain how things “went down”.

These jokesters all want “street cred” these days.

Maybe a bottle of hot sauce will do it.

Oh wait.

I said that wrong.

Maysbees a b-dizzle of ho sizzle be da bo shizzle.  Aighttt!

Pardon me for a moment while I regroup.

I’m pretty sure I just died a little bit inside.

We could give the press the answers to the test and they’d still fail miserably.

Then again who am I kidding?

Figuring out how to obtain a picture ID appears to be too hard for the Progressive crowd let alone procuring a number two pencil.

I can hear the liberals now.

I demand a number one pencil!

I deserve it!

Damn straight home slice.  Here’s your number one pencil.

We call it a participation trophy.

According to the media and Barack Insane Obama, aside from salsa in her purse, Hillary lost because of a typo, Russia, the FBI, and a “white lash”.

Van Jones is begging for a new name.

How about Huffy?

There is no way that man should be driving anything with four wheels.  He’s a walking talking medical marijuana/texting accident waiting to happen.

What Hillary really needed was the right speaker to explain her problems.

Cue NBS, MSNBS and Brian Williams, as only he really knows, what she felt like to be under fire, without actually being under fire.

The talking heads on television continue to report such ridiculousness they don’t even anger me anymore.

Donald Trump has gone from Hitler (too many sources to list) to JFK (Bill Gates) in a little over a month.

Doth care for a morsel of credibility?

I recently read a headline about a college professor telling students they couldn’t use the words illegal immigrant.

Is it any wonder too many kids these days have no concept of reality.

With “teachers” like this, and Obama’s usage of a selfie stick, maybe we should tell the kids to simply get lost in their phones for the next few months until we can replace the constant intellectual carnage inhabiting our halls of “higher learning” especially in California, Colorado, and Washington, or from a surprising acronym perspective, CCW.

Of course this particular molder of minds, or maybe just a creator of mold, stumbled into the truth through no effort of their own.

The “professor” is actually right.

Immigrant implies legality.

To put illegal in front of it constructs an oxymoron, is factually wrong, and smears humans who have done the right thing and followed the law to arrive here legally.

The proper term is criminal and even the liberals know this otherwise they wouldn’t be begging to “pardon” hundreds of thousands of CRIMINALS nor would a pardon be needed.

To be “fair” to the progressive degenerative mind, they do not seem to care, which laws are broken.

Communists never do.

They want Hillary pardoned as well for any and all crimes she has or may have committed.

Nothing quite like “diversity” coming full circle.

After eight years of the Obama Error, his former Secretary of State, her aids, a Weiner, and millions of humans illegally in America all need a get out of jail free card.

Another comment crossed my path this week.  As I don’t remember it verbatim I will paraphrase.  A reader of our weekly columns commented that they had to unfriend someone because their friend said facts don’t matter when it comes to race.

My guess is facts don’t matter to this lost soul regardless of subject matter which leads me to my next thought.

It is well past time to face reality.

Humans are not created equal and multiculturalism is costing lives.

Of course those with weak minds will immediately attach culture to skin color.

Wrong.

Culture has nothing to do with skin color, food, music, dancing, language, etc.

Caloric intake is required to survive.  (Maslow)

How one does that isn’t “culture”. (Common sense)

Music is based on sound or the tympanic membrane inside the ear canal reverberating back and forth.  Musical notes, chords, tones, or keys are universal.  A, B, C, D, E, F and G can be heard by virtually every human on the planet.

Sadly there are some who cannot but this isn’t a culture either.

The way people dance doesn’t create culture.  Whether it’s choreographed to benefit the eye or Elaine Benes from a Seinfeld episode is irrelevant.

The physical movement of humans is universal and innate.

We also call it learning to walk.

Language has never been “culture”.

Before Homo Sapiens started using pictures, symbols, imagery, characters, or letters, communication still occurred using grunts (a form of music depending upon your talent or lack thereof) and hand gestures (a form of dancing. See aforementioned talent).

Skin color has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with proximity to the sun over tens of thousands of years and even on a minute to minute basis.

My time spent in the sun will change my color from a freckled collection to a redness followed by an increase in the collection of freckles.

This changes my interest in being in the sun but not my culture.

Culture is the basis for the rest of society.  It is the one factor that all things are derived from.

It conditions behavior and drives all outcomes.

We don’t need to be taught “culture”.  We know it instinctively.

The difference in human behavior is the willingness of some to REQUIRE a specific culture and others to ACCEPT a specific culture.

The pursuit of happiness (require) versus the delivery of food stamps (acceptance).

There are only two cultures in human behavior.

Freedom and Oppression.

The faster this is understood the faster knowledge is gathered and can be used properly.

Nazism, Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Tyranny, the Clintons, Bush, and Obama are all states of Oppression.

Constitutional Republic, Capitalism, and The United States of America, are all forms of Freedom.

This is known worldwide.  It’s why everyone wants to be here.  It’s why being born to at least one American parent is the greatest home field advantage on the planet.

USA equals Freedom.

Cuba, Russia, China, any country practicing Sharia Law, and many parts of the European Union are all living under the culture of Oppression.

Had Hillary Clinton been elected I have no doubt the Tytler Cycle would have restarted on some scale although we may have had to rewrite it by skipping actual bondage and roaring back to liberty.

I know I know.

I just lost 25 percent of the population.

The reference to the Tytler Cycle is for those who have proven they haven’t any knowledge of survival or reality by voting for Clinton.

We continue to be told that more than half of the country voted for Hillary.

This is false.

Almost half the country didn’t vote at all.

Roughly 25 percent voted for the culture of Oppression and the other 25 percent voted for the non politician billionaire.

Three quarters of the country either didn’t care enough to vote for Clinton or hated her so much they voted for the Donald.

Of course one could argue the same in reverse but due to the behavior of the Clintonistas my guess is if the side who voted for Trump decided to “protest” you wouldn’t find us marching in the streets, flying La Raza flags and going one on one with parked cars.

We wouldn’t trash our own cities and send up “warning flares” while chanting lies and giving you time to get ready.

Not that it would matter.

We could warn you all day for a month and you still wouldn’t be able to handle us.

We’d just have to require picture ID and you’d all be in whimpering piles with your bongs muttering something about a Weekend with Bernie and a safe space.

Go ask former Democratic Pennsylvania Congressman Chaka Fattah.

He was just awarded ten years of equality including water, food, shelter, medical, education, clothing, toiletries, and activities.

Liberals call it utopia.

Chaka will call it federal prison.

Burning anything in public is against the law

Apathy is sadly rampant in America.

If not for technology, incredible distribution systems, and the giving of money and food through the generosity of the United States taxpayer, millions of Americans and illegals would no doubt starve to death.

In our last election almost half of the country couldn’t be bothered to vote.

Of those who did (roughly) fifty percent voted for a lying criminal/leader of an organized crime syndicate, soon to be indicted.

Return in a year and remember you heard it here first.

Three quarters of the population, too incompetent, indoctrinated, or incapacitated, to realize Oppression was about to consume the greatest beacon of Freedom ever known.

Fortunately the creators of our electoral system understood human behavior and layered in as many checks and balances as they could as long as the Rule of Law was still in place.

It was close.

Closer than most realize.

With seventy-five percent of the population ignoring reality, and tens of millions of illegals requiring reality fit their needs, it is imperative that the American Citizen grasp the concept of the TRUTH.

Let us use a statement made by the President-Elect to explain how many citizens are still willing to be lied to or “wagged by the dog”.

Donald Trump tweeted, “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!”

Pseudo intellectuals, feigners of justice, and the bottom of the barrel (most lawyers) decried this statement as wrong, saying things like burning a flag is protected by the 1st Amendment or my favorite, Antonio Scalia said so.

That’s right.

Antonio.

TRUTH Number One.

The job of the Judiciary (all levels) is to enforce not interpret law and due to the bastardization of our Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branches it is virtually impossible for “legal scholars” to even exist as the concept of the Rule of Law isn’t consistently enforced.

Tens of millions amnestied by Reagan and Clinton, and allowed to congregate again through Bush and Obama, provide a stark and very visible reality of rampant selective enforcement of law.

Laws only matter when enforced for all.

Scalia was wrong as were the other four simpletons who “interpreted” rather than enforced.

The 1st Amendment protects certain things.  Speech is one of these things.

The Constitutional Right of Free Speech is specific.  It affords absolute protection to the American Citizen from persecution or prosecution by all forms of government when a Citizen chooses to speak, write, sing, or even pantomime truth to power.

Of course while Oppression (the Obama Administration) controls the Justice Department, the Free Speech of many Americans continues to be removed or has been removed at the hands of Lois Lerner, John Koskinen, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch but to name a few.

TRUTH Number Two.

The exercising of the 1st Amendment does not allow or legally justify the ignoring or breaking of any other law.

Marching in the streets without a permit breaks or violates multiple laws, codes, etc., in every county, city, or town across America.

Burning the Flag of the United States, or any item for that matter, in public, violates many penal codes including potential arson, endangerment charges, and if all else fails, littering.

As citizens we have the legal right, and I would argue duty, to stop crime when and where we can.

The Federal Government has been ignoring or engaging in crime for decades.

Many in America are angry and because of this the pendulum has swung from the “Left” to the “Middle”.

It won’t stay here long.

Americans aren’t interested in coexistence, fair and balanced, multi-culturism, or Sharia Law.

We believe in earning our way, Free Will, Freedom, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

We are done with the tune in, turn on, drop out politicians of the Me Generation.

No more lies, no more drugs, and no more flying flags of other nations in our streets.

The Red White and Blue stands for Freedom and covers our fallen.

Two things real Americans will never let you burn.

Donald Trump is right.

Crime should have punishment and in a just system it does.

This much is a fact.

Actions always have reactions.

Always.

Newtonian Law.

If we won’t let you “tread on it” then burning isn’t even an option.

As sanity is restored to America I feel quite confident specific legislation will occur making any and all forms of desecration of the Stars and Stripes illegal.

Until that time, those of you who feel the need to continue to exercise your Free Will this way, take heed.

The exercising of Free Will works both ways and there are tens of millions of us MORE THAN WILLING to extinguish all enemy flames.

Scamper back to your basements and pray Lady Liberty always waves.

The day She doesn’t guarantees the removal of a lot of things including a “safe space” for you.

Time to remove Liberalism…Permanently.

A few years ago I sat quietly in a large room filled with Americans listening to a speaker.  The topic was the state of our country and what was taking place under the Obama regime.  The speaker wasn’t passionate but entertaining in his own right as he walked through his thoughts.  He covered a few things that wasn’t new information to me and then dove into a story.

Apparently he’d been invited to attend a seminar by a friend and one of the speakers started giving a lecture about the virtues of Communism, if I remember correctly, in Texas.

Yes Communism in Texas.

Of course after watching millions of people vote for Hillary Clinton, in Texas, maybe something is going on in the Lonestar State of which I am unaware.

Then again I live in California so glass houses and round objects need not apply.

The speaker was shocked that this verbiage was not only allowed but encouraged.  His friend stated that America had done an excellent job after WWII explaining the horrors of Nazism but had allowed Communism to permeate and grow.

“We cannot expect Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of Socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.”  This statement was reportedly made by Nikita Khrushchev although some doubt it was ever said.

Fair enough.

Let us remove the possibility of it being said by Khrushchev and simply focus on the words.

“We cannot expect Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.”

Sound familiar?

Can anyone say “Democratic Socialism”?

“Progressive Liberals” make statements like “that isn’t your business, you didn’t build that” or your kids aren’t yours they “belong to whole communities”.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, CommonCore, EPA, Federal Reserve.

I just covered housing, medical, retirement, education, energy and our CURRENCY.

All run top down by the Federal Government while extracting trillions of dollars from the citizenry.

Hundreds of “experts” that are corrupt to the core and/or incredibly incompetent making decisions for hundreds of millions.

The concept of Communism or the idea that political elites know everything and dictate to the rest of us isn’t a new one.

It’s Socratic Theory.  Aristocracy, Timocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy, and finally leading to Tyranny.

It’s why educated souls never use the term Democracy to describe America.

First it is factually wrong.  We are by definition a Constitutional Republic.

Second we don’t want anything that leads to Tyranny.  At least those of us who value Freedom do not.

Yet we hear politicians and the media talking about Democracy and Progressive Liberalism as though they are a good thing virtually everyday.

They are either propagandists or ignorant beyond the pale.

Regardless, just like Communism, we have allowed this verbiage to go unchecked for decades.

This stops now.

We must repudiate Liberal Progressivism all day everyday.  The term Liberal, Progressive, or Democratic Socialist must be hammered every time we as Americans hear it uttered.

It must be met with scorn and disgust and not to be allowed off the hook.

Liberal is the exact opposite of Liberty.

There is no progress in Progressive.

Only incredible regression.

Words matter and this prose has more in common with Fascism and Communism than anything else.

These words must become such an embarrassment that they are removed from the American lexicon.

The Liberal Progressive movement is antithetical to Freedom and anti-American.

Those that practice this ignorance believe in Democracy and mobs, not a Constitutional Republic and the Individual.

There must be no compassion, no leniency, and no angst in the removal of this form of cancer.

Liberal Progressivism has given us George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and almost a second Clinton.

It has given America anarchy in the streets, soul crushing debt and never ending war.

It affords Constitutional Rights to illegals while Americans are stripped of theirs.

Liberals have joined with La Raza (The Race), CAIR (Muslim Brotherhood) and Black Lives Matter (Supporters of Hamas).

All bigoted hate groups.

The liberal progressive Barack Obama likes to tell us “who we are not”.

It is time to embrace WHO WE ARE.

We are Americans.  Born and bred under the colors of the Red, White, and Blue.  We are sons and daughters of the most loyal, compassionate and fiercest human to have ever been created under God.

We don’t allow anyone to tell us “who we are not”.

We roar from coast to coast through the Rocky Mountains and Midwestern prairies and are bordered by incredible oceans from East to West.

We expect nothing that hasn’t been earned by our own hands and will not tolerate those who will not use their hands to climb the ladder.

The Pursuit of Happiness is purely an American ideal that requires positive action not mind numbing drones marching in the streets who live under the protection of the American Lion.

We are a compassionate people but we are well past tolerance.  It’s time for the parasitic hyenas to pay for their sins upon the greatest country in the history of man.

From this moment forward the label of Liberal Progressive must be called what it really is.

Fascism or in one word…Commie.

As we move forward in the reclamation and restoration of OUR country a huge thank you must be given to one citizen.

A man who covered the nation literally with his presence.  A man who never bowed, never broke.

A man who is neither a Republican or a Democrat.  A man who is an American.

We thank you President-Elect Trump and just like you we are chomping at the bit.

So let the horses run and the lions roar.

America is almost free again.

Let the work begin.

MAKE IT COUNT

As this will be my last column before America officially decides which path to take (Tyranny or Freedom) I thought it pertinent to express appreciation to and for the person who has given Americans a very real chance of regaining our country.

The man who has reclaimed the idea of “hope” from the clutches of the ignorant and “change” from their grip of stupidity.

The individual who knows we have 50 States, not 57, because he’s actually been to all of them.

The  citizen who has spent over 100 million dollars of his own money to make America Great Again.

The process of living the life of a billionaire has to be dramatically more enjoyable than running for the office of President of the United States.

Before this venture started Oprah, Sharpton and the Clintons all called him wonderful things.

Millions of television watchers loved the Donald.

Now because he told the TRUTH they call him a racist, xenophobic bigot who hates women, children, and puppies.

They imply he is a communist and a warmonger.

I guess this is an improvement.  Mitt Romney was actually called a dog abusing, tax cheating MURDERER.

The “Free Press” has circled him like sharks with blood in the water while the Democratic-Socialist-Progressive-Liberals (Communism) brought out the old game plan of Scorched Earth.

They just didn’t realize that not only were they dealing with a different deck they in fact weren’t dealing at all.

This time standing in front of them was someone who laughed when they tried to go “low” and basically said you better have more than that…I’m from Queens.

No, Donald Trump wouldn’t have won the previous election, nor the one before that or the one before that.

This however is the perfect time for the brutally spoken man who appears unable to stop any thought he may have from escaping his lips.

This is the most opportune time for the brash New Yawk brawling state of mind.

This is the time for bare knuckles, no holds barred and the taking of no prisoners.

It’s time for New Hampshire to Live Free or Die and the Gadsden flag bearers to start doing the “treading”.

It’s time for the Show Me State of Missouri to proclaim they’ve seen enough and for Oklahoma to be Sooner before it’s too late.

It’s time for Washington to live up to its namesake, California to reclaim her Republic and the Brexit States known as Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to shake off the rust and rise up!

It’s time for Massachusetts  to show us that “By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty” still exists on Plymouth Rock.

It’s time for Texans to be…Texans.

It’s time for Oregon to roar, the Dakotas to soar, and for Florida to give us a reason to happily drink mojitos on a very specific Tuesday night.

It’s time for warrior poets, gardening guerrillas, and Men who need not more than a Minute.

America is in peril and as such it is time to stop defending ourselves.

The time now is to ATTACK.

Your vote is your voice.  It is your one bullet that must be fired in order to be free.  It is time to release 100 million American Snipers with a direct order.

One shot one kill and put the traitor down.

Stand straight, stand tall, and make it count.

Ready, steady, aim…VOTE  !!!
