Idealism Verses Experience

There are those who get into government with real business or military experience.  Then there are those who bring nothing but their idealism into government and try to use the government to run the nations businesses.  Do I really need to explain which party is which?

By the way, I might mention, most of these idealists never worked a day in their life outsied of politics or volunteer projects.  They don’t really have the slightest idea what makes things work.

CNN’s Jim Acosta

I wonder if Jim Acosta even realized what he did.  I saw the thing thing live and I am convinced that he did touch the intern slightly.  That should have never happen.  I am sure he never hurt her but it did likely cause her some fear.  The woman was trying to do her job and he put her in a bad position.  Moreover, he obviously had no respect for the woman.

At the time, he thought of no one but himself.  He wasn’t even thinking of CNN as he caused them a great deal of embarrassment.  He certainly wasn’t thinking of the public as he didn’t even ask a question, but rather made an accusation.  By the way, it was a very poor one.  People who force their way into a country are evaders by definition.  By the way, if they start throwing rocks, they become armed invaders and are guilty of assault.  For this, it would be proper to lock them up and charge them with assault.

I do believe the proper thing for President Trump to do would have been to tell the man apologize or leave.  If he refused, he should have been escorted out.  Then he should have reminded the others that the same thing could happen to them if they insist to speak out of turn.  Even a third grader knows better.

Somehow, Acosta will likely regret his actions.  He won’t be attending any presidential press conferences for a while.  Maybe never.  He might remain at CNN, but he will have to find another job.

A Little Thought

I wished I could say I thought of it but I didn’t.  It was on CBS’s Seal Team.  Loosely quoted, it is corruption and indifference are powerful allies.  Although I certainly agree, I would add two words.  Corruption and indifference are powerful and dangerous allies.

Let’s all remember to vote.  If we don’t, we will most certainly face corruption and likely lose the precious right to vote.  Even the smallest vote is important, even for the proverbial dog catcher.  In some ways, the small contest is even more important.  The smaller the number of voters, the more that your vote counts.

However, even in the big elections, you vote counts.  Think of it.  according to Clinton, President Trump lost based on popular vote.  A few more votes for Trump and they would not have that argument.  Moreover, every vote sends a signal, a mandate.  Had president Trump won by ten million, we just might have our wall now and maybe, just maybe, I wouldn’t have to pay 1000 dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.  Because he lacked the large margin, he lacked the political capital.  He even had to face republicans, of all things.

To be sure, there were three major reasons that President Trump won the election: taxes, the wall (as well as immigration), Iran and the globalists.  Under the heading of globalists, we can include, the Paris accord the TPP.  May I remind one and all, any time we enter a treaty, that treaty exceeds our constitution.  For that reason alone, all treaties should be entered with great care.  In these treaties, the US would be giving up a much of our sovereignty and we would gain nothing.  It would have been a big step toward one world government.  That might be good, but for one thing.  That government would likely be run by very corrupt people, as the UN is today.

Remember, a vote for a dem is a vote for globalism, more regulation and less freedom.  It is not just important to beat them at the ballot box, but we must send them a message that we don’t like a government that takes our money, gives it to the like of Iran and then tells us what to think.

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.

Dodging Bullets

As near as I can tell, President Trump is good at dodging slings, arrows and bullets.  It seems that it is the main desire to hit him every day all day.  They sling stones, shoot arrows and fire bullets at him on a regular basis, but, so far they all missed.

There is one down side at being able to dodge their weapons.  Those near him need to be careful.  When they miss the president, they have a tendency to do substantial damage to those around him.  As near as I can tell, they have damaged the lives of at least four good people, maybe five.  I suspect, by the time his first term is over, there will be many more innocent casualties.

If this pattern continues, people are going to be afraid to be associated with good men like our president.  Then again, this might be their intentions of those who take aim on POTUS.  In this they have had success and that is a shame.

A Whole Lot of Colluding Going On!

I turned the news on this morning and it seemed like every everywhere I looked, I kept hearing… what’s the word now?  Oh yes, impeach.  By evening I was downright tired of it.  Mostly, it was news broadcasters, but there were a few representatives too.  It sort of makes me wonder if the news media is running the country.

It would seem they all just can’t wait until the dems take over the house and get a chance to impeach President Trump.  It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.  Even if they did impeach him, it would take a 2/3 super-majority in the Senate to convict and remove him from office.  (Guess what.  I learned that when I was still in grade school.  It would seem there are a few news commentators that still don’t know it, or just found out after making an idiot of themselves, coast-to-coast.)  Regardless, that’s not going to happen.  Even if it does, I actually think that they will be jumping right out of the frying pan into the fire.  VP Pence is much more conservative than President Trump.  Planned Parenthood might as well close down all their offices because they won’t be getting any more federal funds if Mr. Pence has anything to say about it.

Anyway, I started figuring things out.

First, they know they can’t remove anyone from office.  Even they can figure it out, as long as they have a little help.  They just don’t want President Trump fixing (as in repair) anything else.  They don’t want him settling things with North Korea, China, Russia or Iran.  That would make them, look very bad.  They don’t want him to build his wall.  Need I explain it.  Making him look bad is their only hope of beating him in 2020.  I have seen people like that all my life: make the other guy look bad in hopes it will make them look good.  If he does half of what he wants to do, the dems will have nothing but egg on their faces and they won’t like that.  Everything that they said he couldn’t do he would do, even with them standing in the way.

Second, I noticed that they not only use the same word, they like to use the same phrase.  It is as if unknown villain is writing the script each morning from behind the scenes.  Speaking of scripts, I wonder who is doing their writing.  I can only assume that the dems and the liberal press alike have been doing some serious colluding and I would like to know who is leading the orchestra.

I probably won’t be able to do a thing about it, but it would be nice to know anyway.

If you would like to visit my author’s page and look through the 35+ books I have there, I won’t mind.  Also, should you want to tell your friends about the books, I won’t mind that either.  Even more, I won’t even mind if you tell your enemies.  Please note that there is an underscore between story and teller which you might have trouble seeing.

The Game

I write stories. Admittedly, most of my stories are unbelievable. If you will permit, let me tell you the story of two football teams and the game they played. Mostly, each team has their color. In this case, one team is red, the other blue.

Naturally, the officials wear black and white striped jerseys. It signifies that they are neutral, or at least they are supposed to be. All calls should be unbiased and objective as possible. Now and then, they miss a call, it is normal. They are human. However, in this game, to be honest, they should wear blue. Effective, they have merged with and become part of the blue team. They do little to hide it.

To make matters worse, some of the red team help the blue team. I assure you it isn’t by accident. Indeed, instead of their red jerseys, they should wear purple, maybe blue.

Okay. Some of you figured out what I’m getting at. For those who don’t let me spell it out. The red team are the Republicans. The blue team are the Democrats. The officials are the socialist news media, the ones that are supposed to be neutral. Then of course, there are those who call themselves Republican, but are really dems in disguise. That is to say, RINOs, Republicans In Name Only. I would mention a few names, but what difference does it make. You likely already know them. After all, they don’t hide it.

Repeatedly, complaints come from the crowds. It would seem that the Republicans can’t get anything done. Is it no wonder? Is there anyone who can’t figure out why?

The liberal media keep complaining that President Trump is trying to stifle the news media. Please, let me remind all who read this. When a government becomes socialist, the first thing that goes is the free press. In a socialist country, the government owns everything. They tell everyone what to do say or think. …and that includes the press.

So before you write that lie, just think. Would you get away with that in Russia, or China. Maybe you think a free press in welcomed in Cuba or Venezuela. It’s not going to happen. If are in any of those countries and you write things the leadership doesn’t like, you don’t get stifled; you get thrown in prison, or maybe you just disappear. It has been know to happen.
