Crime? What Crime? Provide Some Facts

Sessions never lied about anything. Franken was asking him about the Trump campaign regarding the Russians. Does the left really think that senators don’t talk to foreign dignitaries? Just what do they think the job of a senator is and what do they think senators are expected to do? Of course, as a senator, Sessions spoke with the Russian ambassador. Would the left expect him to refuse to talk to the ambassador? That would be inexcusable behavior and an insult to Russia. I believe those on the left schmooze everyone, foreign and domestic, for money. We on the right work and earn our money by building businesses and providing jobs. Of course, people running for election do attend fund raisers, but they aren’t seeking funds from foreign governments. That would be illegal, a concept the left doesn’t seem to relate to unless they are gunning for someone on the right.
We have election campaigns going on constantly. The left’s way of thinking would mean that no one in government could talk to any foreign dignitaries ever because at some point they might run for re-election and that would be considered collusion. Get a grip! Do you expect us to be total isolationists? Our government officials have to communicate with and show respect toward leaders of other nations. That doesn’t mean we are colluding with them. Do leftists still look for monsters under their beds, too? Talking with people doesn’t mean you get in bed with them. Well, if you’re a left wing nutcase who has no traditional moral values I suppose it may.

Where’s the same outrage toward Hillary for selling 20% of America’s uranium to the Russians? Where’s the same outrage toward both Bill and Hillary for taking tens of millions in “donations” for speeches (ahem) from nations that have proclaimed they want us dead? What about Obama’s statement to a Russian dignitary caught on a hot mic shortly before his re-election when he told the man to let Putin know he would be in a much better position to give Putin what he wanted after he won his re-election? The left doesn’t consider that collusion? But a senator talking to a diplomat from another country in the course of doing his job, not for donations of money, that’s got them all worked up? They have no way of knowing what the conversations were about. They assume the worst and then go about trying to prosecute and pillory the man on those assumptions just because they want it to be true. No facts, just emotion.

I can see where the left would leap to those conclusions because their own side does those things all the time, so they think everyone does. In reality, they are looking in a mirror, not through a window. They are attributing your own actions to others, not seeing what is really going on. They are not simply hammer heads. They are gold plated hammer heads with no concept of reality. Before casting stones at perceived enemies, they really need to do some background checks on the people they think are so pure on the left. Leftists have a real credibility problem and suffer from a dangerously high level of incompetency based on double standards.

Islam is NOT a Religion

Islam is a governmental system. It is a totalitarian system that dominates every aspect of daily life. It is tyranny on steroids. The religion that Islam allows is Muslim. Muslim is a religion, but only able to exist if Islam is the system of government.

Muslim cannot exist without Islam to support it and Islam cannot exist without Muslim followers because neither one allows for any freedom or questioning or individuality. The Muslim faith MUST have a legal system (Sharia) and governmental system (Islam) that will enforce its religious practices or else people will question its practices and many will no longer abide by them. Islam MUST have Muslim believers because without them the government would have too many people questioning its tyrannical hold and dominance over them and many would rise up against that government.

Christianity existed long before there was a USA constitution and without Christianity, the USA would still be able to maintain its legal system and government. The USA does not need world dominance to exist and remain strong on its own. The USA was founded mainly on Christian teachings, but it would survive with Jewish, Buddhist, Daoist teachings just as well. Islam cannot do that, which is why they continually try to force Islam on every living being.

If there is even one person who does not submit to Islam, Islam is imperiled because that one person would be the weak link in their chain of dominance. The human spirit always seeks freedom. That will always be Islam’s weakness.

Constitutional Immigration Policy

 

It is NOT illegal to restrict immigration.

Federal law—specifically 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f)—provides: Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Article VI, Clause 3 states that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” This does not have any effect on immigration status. It only deals with whether someone may be appointed to serve in any capacity at the federal level, not whether someone is allowed to enter the country as a visitor or immigrant.

8 U.S.C. § 1158 clearly requires that, in cases where an applicant for asylum from persecution on religious grounds, “must establish that … religion … was or will be at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant.” If we can allow entrance based on religious persecution, then we can also deny entrance if the applicant’s religion would be detrimental to our own citizens. The only way to know if a person might be persecuted on the basis of their religion is to ask them what their religion is. Therefore, asking what religion an applicant believes in is NOT unconstitutional.

The Immigration and Nationality Act that passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States and includes Public Law 414. Chapter 2 Section 212 prohibits entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” Since it is the stated goal of Islam in the Q’ran that everyone not converted to Islam be killed or pay a punitive tax, no one following the teachings of Islam (Muslim) should be allowed permanent residency here.

Teddy Roosevelt referred to Muslims as “enemies of civilization”, and said, “The civilization of Europe, America and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization.”

Islam is not a religion. Muslim is a religion, but it only exists as a part of Islam. Islam is totalitarian and the religious aspect of it cannot stand on its own. Therefore, if someone is a Muslim, he is an integral part of Islam and ALL of its facets because Islam controls every aspect of daily life including the religious aspect. The Muslim religion cannot be separated from the overall system of Islam. It would be akin to removing a vital organ from a living organism.  The complete organism would die. 

 As Islam is completely bent on the destruction of any person who does not convert to that system, no Muslim can be considered harmless to any other religion, culture or form of government. And certainly, as immigration laws are in place to protect and benefit the American form of government based on the constitution, no person who would follow any other system which intends to destroy our system should be allowed entry into our country.

No, Virginia, the Russians Are Not Coming

Russia maintains it has not been a party to the DNC email hacking. Despite the Obama administration’s claims to the contrary, there has been no proof. All countries are spying on each other all the time. I’m quite sure the USA has found ways to glean top secret info from our spying efforts in Russia, but there is no proof. 

For Obama to make such a public display of unsubstantiated claims against any other country is childish and accomplishes nothing. It makes America look weak and petulent. Putin is not to be trusted, but this last minute attempt to stir the international pot by poking the bear for no reason is not only useless, it is stupid and no president of the USA should ever allow himself to look stupid. 

What purpose is served by Obama’s actions? It doesn’t change the info found in the hacked documents. It doesn’t address the issues those documents raised. It doesn’t weaken an enemy of the state. It’s a pathetic attempt to distract attention from those who wrote those documents and who deserve to be shamed and impeached for their own words. 

For an administration that claimed it would be the most transparent in history, these actions have instead become an incision into the flesh of the most corrupt and excrement-infested, disgustingly putrid boil of an administration we’ve ever been infected with and now the sunlight is penetrating into that wound and exposing it. Of course Obama wants to lay the blame somewhere else. But Russia? Really? Sigh.

Look inward, Obama. Perhaps it is the disgusted and fed up Americans who work in government and the American intelligence community who can no longer stand the deceit, corruption, theft and unbridled manipulation of America’s people and world standing who are shining that bright light on your team’s activities and deeply held perverted convictions. Perhaps you are being hung out to dry by the very people you must rely on to achieve your heinous goals. You’re going down, son, and your comrades are going with you. For myself, I really don’t care if it is because of the Russians, the Chinese, the Swedes or the corner grocer. 

For about 100 years now you socialists have claimed over and over that the end justifies the means and the end you wished for was to make this country a socialist one. Well, it didn’t work. Now the end is going to be the end of you and your wish and the means to bring that about are justified. The nation’s survival as a free and constitutional republic is what matters.

Your attempts at bringing this nation to her knees so that you could transform her into a socialist state by overwhelming the welfare system, causing class warfare, racial strife, civil unrest, anti-Semitism, refusal and/or inability to deal swiftly and decisively with our enemies, insulting behavior and slights toward our allys, hatred for the rule of law, convoluted teaching in our schools of American history and civil law, abuse of the IRS, driving legislation based on political correctness and social justice rather than constitutional law, politicizing everything from what we eat to what we drive and trying to steal privately owned ranch lands from families by imprisoning and even killing the ranchers will all now cease. The UN will no longer make law in this nation and neither will you.  The Congress, the Legislative Branch will take back the law making reins. 

Happy New Year, America. America still stands tall. The wrong shall fail, the right prevail. You had your turn on the playground and bullying didn’t work. We were tolerant a very long time but in the end we realized it was time to return to what is right and what is truly the foundation of this country. In the words of the 44th president, “We won, you lost. Deal with it.” So good bye, Obama. Good bye, socialists.  Reasonable adults who know how to use critical thinking finally have returned and, though it will take time to overcome the damage you, Obama, and your leftist predecessors have caused, it will be accomplished.  The Russians were not our enemies in this.  Whether they hacked into the DNC or the illegal server Hillary had set up or not.  Whoever leaked those documents to Assange did this nation a huge favor in the nick of time.  But the Russians are not seeking to overthrow America.  The socialist left is.  In fact, outside of Islam, the socialist left is this nation’s most dangerous enemy and has been for a long, long time.  Russia may not be our trusted ally, but neither did they present any threat to the legality of the election in November.

Offense Cannot Be Legislated

“The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit.  We are answerable for them to our God.  The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others.”  Thomas Jefferson

 

In other words, if it causes no physical or financial harm, it cannot be legislated or punished because it cannot be submitted to.  Offense is in the eye of the beholder.  It is a choice.  No one should be compelled by government to NOT offend another because it is up to the person who claims offense to be or not be offended.  I cannot be held responsible for your opinion and your opinion is no more valid than mine.  Therefore, be offended if you wish.  It is based on your opinion and your choice.  You cannot force me to agree with you anymore than I can force you to agree with me.  It is not something that can be legislated.   That would be an attempt to force an opinion by restricting freedom of thought and the right to disagree.  It would be TYRANNY.

Bringing Jobs Back Home

Businessmen start businesses to make a profit.  The better they are at that, the more people they can hire.  Businessmen spend years of sacrifice building their businesses.  They don’t take paid vacations or holidays or even weekends off for years at a time.  They miss their children’s recitals and sporting events because they are working 80 hours a week trying to build something for their family’s future.  When and if they finally achieve success, they don’t expect to be regulated and taxed to the point where all that sacrifice wasn’t worth it.  If they can find a more profit friendly environment overseas, they take it.

This country has been over regulating and taxing the businessman into oblivion for many decades.  On top of that, it has given tax breaks to countries selling their products here.  How is a company supposed to compete with that?  Of course those jobs go overseas.  And even then, if those products our companies make overseas come back into this country for sale, they are taxed heavily.

Government makes no product so it cannot generate any revenue.  But it can raise taxes to get revenue.  A company can only raise prices on its product to increase its revenue.  Once the price is too high, they lose customers to their competition and go out of business.  The government doesn’t have any competition.  It can raise taxes until 100% of everything you earn goes to them.  You can’t stop paying them because you aren’t paying taxes by choice.  You are forced to pay taxes or go to prison and lose everything you own.  So the government never has to worry about losing its revenue source.

Trump understands business.  Trump understands trade inequities between countries.  Trump knows that US companies would love to return here, but can’t afford to do business here under the current tax and trade policies.  Want to see companies return and unemployment go down?  Then put Trump in the White House where he can do something about this problem.  When he says he wants to make America great again, a huge part of that is making sure America’s interests are put first ahead of other countries which are reaping unwarranted benefits in unfair trade agreements.  He wants to give our own companies the advantage, which they haven’t had in a very long time.  He isn’t concerned with making international trade agreements that are simply “fair” with other nations.  He wants America to have the advantage.

Life isn’t fair.  There can only be one top dog.  If you want to be top dog you have to act like top dog, and the top dog protects his pack against all comers.

To Black Lives Matter and Others

Everyone, I don’t care how wealthy you are financially or healthy you are or intelligent you are or what color your skin is, everyone has rough times in life.  What indicates the character, the inner strength or weakness, of the person is how they handle those times.

When I see people who insist on remaining where they are, regardless of the opportunities that may be available to them, I do not see people possessed of very strong character.  This is a country that provides free education to everyone through the 12th grade.  I grant you that, since the Dept. of Education was established and the federal government was put in charge of education, the test scores of American students compared to the other nations of the world have plummeted.  But nonetheless, the basics are there and offered free of charge.  In fact, it is against the law NOT to attend school for nearly ten of those 12 years.

I know there are those who claim that the student can’t learn or learn as well if they come from a poor home because they don’t have enough to eat or a broken home because they don’t come from a stable home or a home in which they are neglected or abused.  While those things play a part in the child’s learning, I must say that I came from a very dysfunctional home and I was still expected to learn and pass tests and be a productive member of society when I got out of school.  Children in many countries are barely able to eat at all and they suffer all kinds of health issues because of it, but their test scores are quite a bit higher than those of American children.  I have friends who were raised in abominable conditions.  Fathers were drunks and beat them.  Mothers were drug addicts and never there for them at all.  They didn’t want to live their adult lives like that, so they applied themselves even harder in school and bettered their futures.  They saw what needed to be done to change things for themselves and they did it.

For decades now I have heard over and over about the plight of the inner city kids.  I have been told how terrible it is for them, how they have no way out, how hungry they are and how dangerous it is to live how and where they live.  I have seen countless movies showing how there is no hope in the people living in the inner city, movies that show how decent people and children and elderly are terrorized by drug dealers and gang members, how murders take place daily and drive by shootings take innocent lives.  Once in a great while a movie will show how one person, in true Hollywood style, courageously takes a stand and fights against all these gangsters and thugs and makes a difference.  Once in a while I see a movie that shows some horribly bullied kid standing up for himself and going to school, even though the thugs and bullies beat the tar out of him for doing it.

Hollywood loves a good story.  The more blood and guts in it, the better they like it and the more they play it up.  I had a friend who was born and raised in the Chicago ghetto.  She was 12 years old when, in the hallway of her tenement, a man she didn’t know pinned her against the wall and raped her.  I’m not oblivious to the realities of the ghetto.  I wouldn’t go there if the choice were mine.

But what I don’t understand and never will is why the rest of society is told that it is their fault and their heartlessness that causes those people to live there.  I don’t understand why we are constantly being told that it is up to everyone else to resolve the problems of people who live like that.

Why does everyone want to point a finger of blame at someone else?  There are so many people who want to blame white people for the poverty of Latinos and blacks.  Don’t they realize that there are plenty of white people who live in trashed out, poverty stricken, drug and booze induced communities?  Don’t they realize that if, in a middle-class neighborhood, a white person is committing a crime or acting suspiciously, that person is going to be arrested and taken to jail?  Don’t they realize that most murders do not take place in the nicer neighborhoods because the people in those neighborhoods simply don’t commit murders?  It isn’t because they are white neighborhoods.  It’s because the people living there just don’t behave that way.

The plain and simple truth is, children learn what they live.  A child is an adult under construction.  What they are allowed to do as a child will become a habit and, as an adult, they will embrace it as a way of life.  I don’t care if you take that adult out of that environment and give him all the best things in life.  He will not change.

So who is really to blame?  Not society.  Not people who have a different skin color.  It’s the parents.  It’s the parents who just don’t have the motivation or determination to rein their kids in when they want to act disrespectfully or criminally while they are young.  It’s the parents who are drug crazed and drunk themselves.  It’s the parents who fight constantly with each other.  It’s the parents who act immorally and take no responsibility for their own actions.  It’s the parents who spend the little money they have on unnecessary items rather than setting an example of good stewardship.  It’s the parents who don’t make their children go with them to church.  It’s the parents who engage in illegal activities rather than putting out an honest day’s hard work for an honest day’s pay.  It’s the parents who allow their children to stay home from school and not apply themselves when they do attend.  It’s the parents who make excuses for their children’s bad behavior.  It’s the parents who curse and dress like skanks and thugs and cause their children to think that’s acceptable.  It’s the parents who speak in Ebonics rather than trying to speak English.  It’s the parents who tell their kids that the reason they are living as they are is because those white folks hate them and force them to live like that by denying them money.

And there it is.  Those children are never told the truth.  They are never told that, although back in history slavery was practiced throughout the world, it was the white people who finally decided it was going to end because it was immoral.  It was the white people who changed their way of life and fought and killed each other over this issue, not just in America, but all over the world.  It was the white people who made it possible for all children, regardless of color or nationality, to attend school so they could have better lives than their parents and provide better for their own children.  For the most part, it has been the white people who have used their opportunities for better education and industrialized the world, given it modern medicines and medical treatments, produced food for the entire world, not just their own communities.  It’s the white people who created a system of government and economics that has raised more people throughout the world out of poverty and degradation than any other system in history.  And they haven’t kept it all for themselves.  These children aren’t told about how the white people have gone around the world, at their own expense and in spite of putting their own lives at risk, and set up schools and hospitals in the worst and most dangerous parts of the world to help others.

They aren’t encouraged to emulate that kind of person.  They aren’t told to learn to behave that way.  Instead they are told that kind of person is to be hated, reviled and punished because that person has only gotten to live that way because they stole from the person in the ghetto.  They are told not to trust whites.  They are told that to live in abject poverty with no morals and no self-respect is better than to behave like the people who live the way they wish they could live.

To a child, when they see someone who is clean and lives in a nice home in a safe neighborhood, they want that, too.  If a parent really wanted that for their child, they would encourage their child to do what those people do, act like those people act, speak like those people speak.  Instead, the parents are so jealous of what they don’t have and aren’t providing, they blame their situation on others.  They can’t and won’t admit that they themselves haven’t done all that they could or should to improve their own situation.  It’s because of someone else.  It’s because of their skin color.  It’s because the other people hate them.  It’s never because they didn’t do more for themselves.

They have been brow beaten for generations by people to believe that the most important thing about them is their skin color.  Their talents, abilities, skills, intelligence, morality, none of that matters.  The only thing they feel is worth any value at all is their skin color.  It is the only thing they can relate to.  It is the one thing they can point to as the reason they are living as they are.  Skin color is the one thing they have no control over, so it’s very easy to blame everything on that.  It relieves them of taking any blame for not changing what they actually do have some control over.  It has nothing to do with whether they have tried to be successful by changing the way they themselves live.  It has nothing to do with the people with whom they choose to associate.  It has nothing to do with how long they’ve allowed criminal and abusive behavior to go on in their families and neighborhoods for so long that it has reached these impossible levels.  No, no.  Instead of accepting any responsibility for any of it, it must be those evil white people who are forcing them to live that way.

Well, I’m not being suckered into that line of thinking.  I have always believed that most of what happens in our lives is due to our own way of thinking and our own efforts to change things for ourselves.  I’m living just on the edge of being homeless myself.  It isn’t anyone else’s fault but my own.  When I was young, instead of saving and preparing for my golden years or for unforeseen difficulties, I was frivolous.  I wanted to have a good time.  I was young and healthy and not very smart.  It isn’t the fault of wealthy people.  It isn’t my neighbor’s fault, so why should they have to pay to take care of me?  It was my own doing.  But for people of color, they aren’t told that.  They are told just the opposite.

It’s time to stop paying for other people’s stupidity and hard headedness.  The reason white neighborhoods are safe isn’t because they have more money.  It’s because they won’t tolerate behavior that would be harmful to the community.  It’s because the parents have raised their children, not simply created them.  The parents hold their kids responsible and expect them to maintain a certain level of respect and accountability for their actions.  The attitude is completely different.

Unfortunately, because of Hollywood playing its guilt trips on whites and making them feel responsible for people who do drugs and live in deplorable conditions, even the nice neighborhoods are seeing more children engaging in bad behaviors because to be proud of being a person with integrity is seen as being the bad guy.  It’s thought to indicate that you don’t care about people who have less than you.  Instead of being someone people can look toward as an example of what can be, these white kids from good neighborhoods are told they are bad people because they aren’t as poor as someone else.  Just the opposite is true.

There is nothing noble about being poor and there is nothing inherently evil about being better off than others.  It takes effort to get to and maintain a decent standard of living.  No one should be made to feel guilty about it.  People who aren’t willing to see being self-sustaining, let alone prosperity, as a goal and work toward it for themselves, they’re the ones who should feel guilty.  They aren’t using the natural gifts God gave them to achieve the most they can.

I don’t care what your religion is.  I don’t care what color your skin is.  All I care about is how you live your life, how you present yourself, what example you set, especially for your children, and how much effort you’re willing to put out on your own behalf.  Those are all indicators of the person you truly are.  And don’t try to make me feel guilty or responsible for you based on anything else.  Stop blaming others for your problems.  Most of your problems are of your own making because of your own choices in life.

If your neighborhood isn’t safe, move.  If you have to leave friends and family behind, so be it.  It’s their choice to remain just as it’s your choice.  If you can’t afford to move, get a job and earn enough to move.  If you have trouble getting a job, do what the hobos did during the depression.  Just walk away from everything and head toward another town where you can begin again.  If it’s not that important to you, then you will never get out of the situation you are now in.  So why should it be more important to someone else than it is to you?  People don’t die from moving forward.  They die from stagnating where they are.  I’ve been homeless and I’ve been so hungry I was shaking.  Right now I need medical treatment, but I won’t go to the doctor because I refuse to incur another bill.  I don’t want to hear sob stories anymore.  Crocodile tears mean nothing to me.  If you aren’t willing to do what you can do to improve your own situation in life, then don’t come crying to me.  If you would rather remain in a place where people destroy the property they have been given at no cost to themselves, don’t expect me to give you even that let alone something better.  If you would rather spend money on cell phones and TVs and fast food, don’t expect me to give tax dollars to provide you with food stamps.

When you show that you’re willing to be responsible for and take care of what you already have, when you show me that you are willing to make serious changes in your own life and hold your own family responsible for their behavior, then maybe we can talk about assisting you.  Until then, it’s a waste of time on both sides and definitely a waste of money.  Money will not change the character of anyone.  It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor.  It isn’t money that makes the man, it’s character.  And without changing your character and your mind set, nothing will change in your life.

Men and women who are willing to learn in school and who do work for a living put on a uniform every day and go into your crime infested neighborhoods and stand between you and the criminals you have raised and who you tolerate and you encourage your youth to kill them, always pointing the finger of blame at others, never accepting responsibility for what you have created and tolerated.  There are scores of people who claim to be reverends and political leaders who continue to beat the drum of skin color and continue to rile up the anger and hatred in the hearts of people who feel hopeless by blaming others to the point of accepting and making excuses for murdering the very people who have put their lives on the line to protect you.

I’m tired of the excuses.  I’m tired of the guilt trips and I’m tired of thinking about how many trillions of dollars have been wasted on trying to do for you what you aren’t willing to do for yourselves.  Find some other reason for your problems than your skin color.  It’s become boring.  You can’t control your skin color and neither can I.  But you can change your way of thinking.  You can take responsibility for your situation in life and you yourself can make changes in that situation.  What doesn’t require sacrifice and hard work will never make you a better person.

Life isn’t supposed to be fair.  Look hard for even the smallest opportunities to improve and act on them.  One will lead to another and another.  It’s up to you, not someone else.  If you won’t do it for yourself, don’t expect someone else to do it for you.  If your skin color is what is most important to you, then expect that to be what is most important about you to others.  I never got or lost any opportunities based on my skin color and neither have you.  I don’t care what you’ve been told.  It’s the way you present yourself and how you speak and what you think that either gets you ahead or holds you back in life.  You are seen by others just the way you see yourself.  That’s the truth and it’s true for all of us.  Deal with it.
