A Matter of Record

To save repeating myself, let me refer you back to my post Oct 9, 2018 about truth.  Some may have already read it.

During the Republican convention of 2008, Lt. Gov. Steele said, “Drill baby, Drill.”  Later, during the vice presidential debate, Gov Palin repeated it.  Some time later, Obama said it wouldn’t do any good.  At or about that time, the price of oil was $142 per barrel.  Then they started drilling in North Dakota and Texas…  I guess a few other places too, to the dismay of Obama.  The point is, Obama refused to release federal land for drilling.  Indeed, he went out of his way to keep people from drilling.

Oddly, the price went down briefly to $26.21 in 2016.  Currently, though the usage has gone way up, the price is currently about $63.  Moreover, we are virtually self-sufficient, something that I am sure frustrates Obama to no end.

Now, this leads me to believe one of two things.  Obama purposely lied, or he was totally ignorant.  I don’t know which scares me more.  However, given his history, I assume he was lying.  He is the same man that said he had shovel ready projects.  (I would still like to know where those billions went that were appropriated.  I suspect it is lining the pockets of his friends.)  He is also the same man that said you can keep your same doctor.  By the way, he is the same man that has me paying a thousand dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.

Do you really want to believe that man, an admitted liar.  He himself said, “I guess those projects weren’t shovel ready after all.”  I don’t think I want to believe the man.  Now he is campaigning for his cohorts.   Some people actually believe him.  Some have college degrees.  Can’t figure that out.

It is clear that he just wanted the price of energy to go up so that he could pay for his green projects.  By the way, his green projects didn’t work, none of them.  They were all flops.  Not only that, the windmills are still killing birds, including the protected eagles.

Progress or Regress

It was late evening.  My wife drove me to the emergency room.  While she parked the car, I went up to the admissions desk.  I showed my hand to the clerk and asked, do you need to explain why I’m here.  Even though she smiled, she also displayed the proper empathy.

My wife had warned me a few times about walking at night.  I had even been stopped by the police and warned, that is, after they asked what I was doing.  There are thieves out there.  Some have knives and some even have guns.  However, you must understand, it is cooler at night and I need my exercise.

So, generally I walked about two miles a night.  The nice thing about walking is that it exercises some of the largest muscles in the body.  More that that, walking helps to pump blood through the body.  This helps to distribute the nutrition and flush out the poisons.

On this particular night, it was neither thief nor even a gunman that assaulted me.  My problem was a pine-cone.  After I stepped on it, I was on the pavement before I knew it.

At this point, I started to wonder if a knife might have been less painful.

I mean; I really hurt, pretty much all over.  It was as if someone picked me up and slammed me to the ground.  In a way, it was worse.  I never saw it coming.

I started taking account of everything when I realized that one of my fingers was pointing the wrong way.  As I held my hand in front of me, it was pointing to the right, not up as the others.  Immediately, I realized that was not so good.

In spite of my best efforts, I couldn’t get up.  It reminded me of the commercial where the person calls out, “Help.  I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”  I lay there in street a short distance from the curb.  I wondered if I should have carried a flare with me.  I mean, it was dark.  I did have some fear that someone might run over me before they saw me.

Fortunately, I did have my cell phone with me and, like ET, I phoned home.  It did not take long for my wife to reach me.  I was right in front of my house when that lethal pinecone attacked me.

Well, most of the rest, you already know.  She helped me to my feet and drove me to the hospital.  There, they determined that I had one shattered one knuckle and dislocated another on my right ring finger.

I knew about dislocations.  I had seen enough TV to know that it is painful to fix them.  Well, I just had it confirmed.  When that PA took my finger and straightened it, I jumped straight up off that gurney.  I don’t know how I did that, but I was literally two inches above it.  Thinking I was going to hit her, she jumped back about four feet and she was ready to retreat even more.

Unbelievably, I thanked her.  Now, when is the last time you ever thanked someone for causing incredible pain.  Besides that, I assured her that I knew what was coming and I would have never hurt her.  I did mention that I preferred that it might have been better had she not snuck up on me like that.

I got another one of those smiles, you know, one that was accompanied with empathy.

Believe it or not, I was referred to a hand specialist.  I did not even know that there was such a thing.  He put wires in my finger.  They kept my finger from bending sideways while allowing it to bend properly.  Then he told me to bend it a lot… to keep it from freezing in one position.

Then after a few weeks, he decided to cause me more pain.  The wires had to come out and he decided the best way was to use a big pair of wire cutters.  He cut the wire four times.  (I suppose I should mention that the wire was stainless steel, very strong, very difficult to cut.)

I know it does seem strange, but sometimes, those that want to help us cause us pain, sometimes a lot.  Conversely, some folks who help us mean us harm.

In one of my books, “Stormy,” I try to illustrate this.  I consider the book my best.  I don’t guess my readers agree with me.  I have sold but one.  Also, it is the only one that was commercially edited.  It cost me $8500.  I don’t think I’ll make it back at this rate.

Getting back to my main point, the Bible tells us that work is a blessing from God.  Though the Bible doesn’t say as much, I believe it is a proper conclusion that when a nation deprives a person of work, he is robbed of a blessing, though many will emphatically deny it.

Many times I have been approached by beggars.  I am not talking about people who have disabilities.  I am speaking of healthy able-bodied people who use deceit to get a person to give them money.  I might mention that the deceit is thinly veiled.  They beg for money to buy food.  I offer to buy them a meal, and they go to their next mark.

The fact is that if I give them the money, I teach them that they can survive by begging.  If we all deny them, they just might go out and get a job.  Therefore, by giving him money, I do him a disservice.  You deprive him of one of God’s richest blessings.

All of us come to hard times from time to time.  When I first got out of the Marines, I did accept some help for a few weeks.  Those were hard times.  Looking back on it, I don’t know how I made it, but I did.  I won’t go through the explanations, but I took no money from the government, just a small loan from my wife’s grandmother.

Moreover, let me say this, when you take welfare from the government government, then you become a slave to those who run the government.

 

Speaking specifically about the democrats, it is their hope to arrange giveaway programs.  That way, they can enslave the population, or at least a large part of it.  To some degree, they have succeeded already.  Those on the dole are afraid that they will lose their freebees.  Therefore, they already control your vote.  If ever they achieve complete control of the government, then they control of everyone.  We will all lose our freedom.

By the way, those on the dole now will work.  The government will make sure of it.  It is the way of socialists.  They use giveaways to gain control.  Then, once they have control, they remove the giveaways.

It is the pattern.  It is the one they have used since the early 1900’s.  It is how they took over Russia, China, Cuba and many others.  They promise Utopia.  Over and over, they have succeeded in their deceit.  Yet, wherever they rule, it is far from Utopia.  For those who like to hug trees, the socialistic countries have the worst records for the environment.  Their only interest is themselves.  I assure you, those in the leadership of Venezuela don’t go hungry.  They live in their nice big air conditioned houses with their servants while those who were promised Utopia go through garbage cans trying to find a morsel that might last the day.  If they don’t succeed, they go to sleep hungry.  If they do succeed, who knows what kind of disease they might pick up?

Even more, they have been robbed of their blessing, work.  Now they beg, not by choice, but of necessity.

I would encourage one and all to vote republican.  More than that, avoid relying on the government for your survival.  If you do rely on Uncle Sam, you will be a slave and the elite will live like royalty.  The socialists call themselves progressives.  Yet, if they succeed at taking control, it will be a regression back to the dark ages.

The Truth

A number of times, I have seen a commercial advertising a certain insurance company.  The commercial, more or less ends… and now that you know the truth…

Actually, I don’t know that the man was telling the truth, or anything close to it.  I am sure there are many other insurance companies that would argue the point and they likely all have their proof.  Either way, I use another company and have for more decades.

It does bring to mind, how is that we know when someone is telling the truth.  I do believe there is one way—consider the source.  In the Soviet Union, there was a news agency called Pravda.  I suspect they told a bunch of lies, all the time telling us that they tell nothing but the truth.  On the other hand, we have a newspaper here in the US that is resembles Pravda.  It is called The New York Times.  They would like us to believe that they are honest and objective, but their bias is thinly veiled.  As I like to say, it is casual to the most obvious observer.

Another way to determine truth is by considering the motive.  Most recently, the dems admitted that they would do anything to stop the appointment of Justice Cavanaugh.  In their own words, they admitted that they were willing to lie.  It would be a small thing to keep someone off the bench that actually believes in following The Constitution, and not making up the law on the fly.

There is of course, the old saying, “Follow the money.”  Hardly anyone is completely immune to considering a bribe, though I would like to think I am.  This is nothing more than another form of motive.  Besides being a reason to lie, it is also a reason for our representatives to do what they know is wrong.

Perhaps a less obvious reason is what I call the back scratch reason.  That is to say, you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.  In this case, you lie for me and I will lie for you.  In the last few years there’s been a lot of that going around.  …and, by the way, the dems are quite good at it.

Finally there are the promises of politicians.  Consider, for decades, the dems have been promising that they will help the African-Americans.  That has not worked out so well for them.  I simply don’t understand why they continued to vote in lockstep for the dems.  Well, now they have a reason to abandon them.  President Trump has given them a reason to follow him.  The lie from the dems has been exposed.  The dems had no plan to help the African-Americans.  Indeed, many of their own have abandoned them for the previous purpose.  They are scratching the backs of dems while the dems scratch their backs, this while purposely ignoring their promise.

President Trump has been called racists.  Yet, in decades, he is really the first one to really help the minorities.  He does not deserve the label.  In spite of those firing fiery darts at him, he continues to help them… and he would help them more if the dems would just get out of the way.

Education

I has been said a number of times that experience is a good teacher, but fools will learn by none other.  You take for instance, a man goes in a bar and has 4 drinks.  Then he successfully drives home, not even one near accident.  From this, he has just learned that he can drive while intoxicated.

Not everything that we learn from experience is good.  How many times do we do things we know we shouldn’t do.  We learn we can successfully do them repeatedly.  Then one day, we learn we can’t.

Diane Feinstein has learned from her experience.  If she can’t stop good men any other way, she can use accusations to delay progress for weeks.  She now knows it works even if the accusation is completely baseless.  Now she will continue as long as she lives, or until it fails.  It will not bother her that it will ruin lives.  Her only concern is for the advancement of the establishment, what I call, the controllers.

To be sure, she has likely failed at her main goal of keeping Judge Kavanaugh from being confirmed this weekend, though I must admit she did come very close.

Unfortunately, there were others that have learned as well.  Many will learn from Dr. Ford’s experience.  Dr. Ford suffered even more than Judge Kavanaugh and it Senator Feinstein doesn’t care one little bit.  Dr. Ford’s trust in her was betrayed and now her life will never be the same.

Feinstein says she never leaked anything about the letter.  To Dr. Ford, it makes little difference.  Her life was ruined… and not by any Republican.  They didn’t even have the letter, or even her name.

A Matter of Control

Please permit me a small thing before I go to my main subject.  The dems keep saying that the FBI needs to speak to Dr. Ford and Judge Cavanaugh.  Actually, that would be redundant and a waste of time, money and effort.  The only reason they would need to talk to either is if they found a significant discrepancy.  The senators could deal with minor ones.

Actually, it is all of little significance.  The dems would like us to believe how important the charges are, but it is nothing more than a distraction.  They would like us to believe how badly Dr. Ford was treated by the republicans, but really, Sen. Feinstein through her efforts to gain control, threw her under bus, after which, the dems drove over her, backed up and then drove over her again.

It was all for one purpose, delay, delay and delay.  It is all part of a plan, which I will now explain.

I used to think their idea was to turn the world to socialism, but that is not it at all.  It is only a means to an end.  Their idea is world dominance, utter control of the world.  Rulers down through history have attempted the same thing.  There were the Egyptians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks and Romans.  More recently, there were Germany and Japanese.  However, they all used the same method, war.

Today, other methods are employed.  Nowadays, they use deception and trickery.  Frequently, they accuse conservatives of using the same methods they used.  Every place the communists went they caused division and hate.  In the US, it was easy.  The division was already there.  They simply took advantage of it.  They did not intend to help the African-Americans or the Hispanics.  All they wanted was their votes.  By giving things to the poor, they gained control over them.  If you receive welfare in any form the government has, at least to some degree, control over you.  With Obama care, they gained control over 14% of the US economy.  Guess what.  They had no desire to provide health care.  It was simply another means to an end.

To some degree, they were getting close to having success.  They had but just a few more things.  Within a decade, they would have, or nearly have total control.  It would be Orwell’s 1984, but perhaps worse.

With everything in place, the elite would drive cars and fly airplanes.  I would guess the rest of us would walk, or if lucky, we might have a horse or mule.  They would eat meat; we would eat rice and beans.  They would totally control the propaganda; there would be no news.  (They would definitely outlaw Fox News.)

Ultimately, to meet their goals, they needed complete control of the government, all three branches.  The plan was for Hilary to be elected president.  In a few months, they would have control of The Supreme Court.  Hilary had plans of just opening up the borders and letting everyone come in from everywhere, resulting in chaos such as you and I have never seen.

There were two problems with this plan.  First, she was a lousy candidate.  It is a fact that just might have saved our country and possibly the world.  Secondly, Obama caused dozens of congressional seats to pass to the Republicans.

As a result they went to plan B, destroy President Trump and his administration.  They did make a very strong effort, but they underestimated him.  He knows how to fight back.  Not only that, he utterly destroyed all their efforts to take over the country.  All the presidential directives have been overturned as well as some from other presidents.  The controls that they had over many of us are gone.

Their efforts at taking over The Supreme Court are no more.  So, they went to plan C.  If they can’t get their nominees appointed, they are going to move heaven and earth to keep constitutionalists from being appointed.  Such a thing would set them back 40, maybe 50 years.

So, you see, sexual assault and the “me too” movement are no more than tools.  Don’t ever get the idea that Feinstein or any of the dems were thinking of Dr. Ford’s well being.  As I said, she is just a pawn that they will use and toss aside to reach their goal of total control.

To the dems, The Constitution is just a piece of paper that stands in their way.  The only way they can supersede it is to pack the courts, that is, “legislate from the bench.”  Believe me.  If the dems get the chance they will.  They have admitted such.  More than that, they have demonstrated it.  If they ever do manage to pack the court, they will walk all over The Constitution without hesitation.

Finally, there is plan D.  Delay, delay, delay.  If they can delay the vote beyond November, three dems will be able to vote no on the confirmation without concern fear of recourse by their constituents.  If they can delay it beyond January and the dems pick up a majority in the senate, they will be able to prevent President Trump from appointing anyone.  If they can delay past January of 2021, they just might have a dem president.  (That is their hope.)  That would put them back on course for total control, though it would take a little while to make up the lost ground.

Then again, if Judge Cavanaugh is confirmed, it will mean they will have to come up with a plan E.  I hate to think of what that might be.

Any way you want to look at it, Dr. Ford will be long gone from the memory of any of the dems.  If you should bring her name up, they will ask, “Who?”  Some might think they will want to remind us of how badly the Senate treated her, but I don’t think so.  I suspect they would rather forget her, especially if the judge takes his seat in the Supreme Court.

Real Treasure

I heard an interview of Trace Adkins on TV a few years back.  For those that know me, this will sound strange.  I am not a country/western music fan, though there are a few songs I do like by country singers.  At any rate, the question was put to him, “Do you buy gold?”  The obvious reason for the question was asked in relation to any prepping that he might do in the event of disaster.

Casually, Mr. Adkins replied, “No.  I can’t eat gold.  I buy land, seed and lead.”

Now there is a man with some real common sense.  If things get bad, the man that has gold will easily part with it for a loaf or two of bread.

Repeatedly, I hear these guys on TV trying to hawk their silver and gold on TV.  If the gold is worth so much, why do they wan to sell it?  Personally, I see three problems with this.  Invariably, I will always have to pay more for the gold than what it is worth.  In the event that I sell it, I no longer have any treasure.  Moreover, no one will ever pay me what the gold is worth.  Finally, gold, in a true disaster won’t have any value at all.  You can’t eat it.

On the other hand, if I am the only one around with grain, I can pretty much set my price.

The books are full of stories of men seeking treasures.  The truth is frequently we already have the real treasures.  Here in this country we have a real treasure that is generally overlooked and taken for granted.  Our founding fathers paid for it, many with their lives, many with their limbs.  Many have fought and died to hold onto the treasure.  By now, I am sure most of you know the treasure of which I speak, freedom… also known as liberty.  Since the Revolutionary War, this country has not know tyranny.  There are few countries in this world that can truly say that today.  …Certainly not Russia.  …Certainly not China.  …and most certainly not Iran.

Of all the treasures on this earth, it is likely the one treasure most worth fighting for.  Yet so few are willing to fight for it.  Worse yet, there are those who stand in the way of those who are willing to fight for it.  To be sure, remember, it is far easier to maintain the freedom we have than to fight for the freedom we lose.

I write this because there are those who want to take our treasure from us.  They don’t want us to have it.  They want to run our lives and tell us what to do and what not to do.  They want to tell us how to raise our children and they want to teach our children the way tyranny.

I ask you, what good is gold if you can’t buy anything with it.  What good is security if you are being told what to think.

I refer you back to the above quote.  The land and seed is good for survival.  The problem is that there are always people trying to take your treasure.  So.  To hold onto the land and seed, a person must also have lead… and the willingness to use it.

For sure, the more I think of Trace Adkins’ words, the more true they ring.  There would not be survival without all thee: land to raise crops, seed for the crops, and lead to protect the other two.

If we are not willing to protect our treasure, there are people that will take it from us.  Maybe you don’t care.  Fine.  You lack the courage and conviction.  Then stand aside and don’t hinder the rest of us.

Justice Delayed

Those of you who have read my books know that I specialize in the unbelievable.  Those who have read many of my blog posts are also well aware of this.  I only repeat this for those unaware of my work.

I now submit the following scenario for you.  Many of those who staunchly believe in political correctness will find it offensive.  Sorry, but sometimes it is good to provoke some thought, regardless how unlikely.

I would suspect that the day that Justice Kavanaugh was nominated, no less than a dozen private detectives started looking for dirt in his background.  It could be far more.

To them, it would well be worth a couple of million dollars.  However, in this case, they apparently had to go back to his high school days, which says a lot about Kavanaugh.  Moreover, there is considerable doubt that they found dirt on him at all.

Moreover, I would guess that something of value has or will change hands.  A hundred grand can certainly encourage drumming up some old memories, even if they don’t exist.

Many would say that I am wrong and it is unthinkable to say such things.  Yet, anyone past high school knows that the dems will do about anything to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed.  They have said as much.  Is it such so unbelievable that they might pay to find some dirt on the nominee?  Is it so difficult to believe that a hundred grand might be offered to a woman in the effort to stop the confirmation?

My guess is that the dems would consider it all a small investment.  They certainly wouldn’t let their sense of right and wrong get in the way.

I might not be completely right.  It might take two or even three hundred grand.  On the other hand, a promotion or another position of high prestige might be the object of barter.  A nice stable government job might be difficult to turn down.  Also, there is the possibility a threat or two was made as well.  Let’s face it, a word to the right person and the accuser might be looking for another source of income.

A person might think that they would never risk such a thing.  Think about it.  If anyone is caught, the dems deny it and throw their minions to the wolves.  In all likelihood, they were likely well-paid for their risk.

Let’s face it.  They want to control us.  It is their number one goal to establish their government… one without a constitution,,, one without freedom of the press or speech… one without a right to bear arms… one without a fifth amendment.

You doubt me?  Think.  They are already using political correctness to control our very thoughts.

Regardless, the woman seems to want to make her accusations without allowing any kind of defense by the accused.  Regardless, their methods serve to delay past the confirmation past election.  They don’t want to register their vote before the midterm elections.  Else, those senators in the red states might lose their seats.

Finally, let me say this.  The democrats do women in general a disservice.  It makes it easier for the real rapists.  It is as old as the story of the boy who called wolf
