Earn Your Pay or Get Fired

If the senators truly were trying to serve their constituents and this nation, they would have a time limit on confirming or denying a cabinet nominee. By refusing to confirm or deny, when it is not a lame duck nomination, they are being petulant children whose only desire is to obstruct and cause problems for the administration for as long as they possibly can. They show absolutely no regard for the strength and health of the nation and total disregard for the wishes of the people who elected the president and thereby showed their faith in his decisions. It is spiteful and can actually cause harm to the nation. 

Unless the senators can show legitimate and meaningful reasons for not confirming a nominee, they should move this process along for the benefit of the nation and not be so selfish and spiteful based solely on their dislike of or disagreement with the decision of the voters and their elected representative in the White House. They are supposed to be serving us and doing our bidding. We pay them to do that. It isn’t their place to decide who we should or shouldn’t elect. It isn’t their place to thwart him just because their desires weren’t fulfilled. Their desires don’t mean a thing. 

It is the will of the people that matters. This whole great experiment called America was based on the people being able to govern themselves and not be dictated to by a handful of others. We chose Trump. The opposition to Trump, while they shouldn’t rubber stamp everything without consideration first, must stop. It is hindering the will of the people. It is disrespectful to the people and the president and it proves that they don’t care about the people they serve at all. They have no respect for us. They are showing disdain for us and proving that they think they are more intelligent than us and should dictate to us what we should and must do. 

Well, I have nothing but disdain for them because of that and I feel they should no longer be paid their salaries because they are not fulfilling their employment contract with us, their employers. They should be fired, not voted out in the next election. They have already broken faith and refused to earn their paycheck, and they’ve done so for purely selfish motives. So they shouldn’t receive another paycheck just because their tenure hasn’t expired yet. They should either start doing what they’re paid to do and show the people that they respect the people’s choice for president or be fired immediately. That’s what would be expected of any employee/employer relationship. This is no different.

Politics, Should it be funded by taxes?

UN Funding

The American citizens provide a huge amount of international support outside of tax dollars that the gov’t pours into the UN. Doctors Without Borders, City of Hope, hundreds of private charity organizations such as the Red Cross, and the list goes on. This is not to mention the individual people who volunteer a year or more of their lives to go to hell holes throughout the world, at their own expense, and get paid nothing while they teach people how to get safe water for their villages, grow and rotate healthier crops, maintain cleaner, safer environments for their children, etc.  It is the soldier in the West whose life is always put in danger to fight rogue nations who want to use nuclear weapons to harm the weaker nations.  It is the strength and willingness of the wealthy nations in the West to protect the weaker nations that prevent such disasters.

The tax dollars that would be cut from the UN by what this money grubber from Foreign Policy calls an “unprecedented retreat by President Donald Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen.” (stated by Foreign Policy as quoted in the Conservative Tribune) is not used for those purposes anyway, or at least very little of it is. Most of the funds the UN collects from Western nations end up in the hands of the wealthiest people in the poorest nations and the poorest people see very little, if any, benefit from it. 

The majority of the members of the UN are from nations that are corrupt in the highest degree and truly hate and revile the West because they, even with their corruption, still can’t achieve anything close to an affluent society. This is due mostly because of their corruption, but that doesn’t matter to them. They are constantly telling the West how to live and govern our countries, but they themselves can’t do anything to better their own governments. Yes, we have wealthy people in our governments, but our poorest citizens are living much healthier and more comfortable lives than their citizens. If our wealthiest haven’t sucked everything up and our poor are still so much better off than their poor, who are they to tell us we aren’t compassionate? 

We could give them every dime we have and their poor people would still be no better off because the wealthy in their nations would keep it all for themselves. We have paid and paid and paid to help via their UN members and programs for many years. If they were truly using those funds to help their people, we would see a big difference from what life used to be in those nations. Instead, there are still just as many poor, unhealthy and hopeless people living in abject poverty and degradation there.

It would be stupid and disrespectful to our own citizens to continue to throw our tax dollars, taken from hard working Americans, down such a rat hole run by people who hate and disrespect us while depriving their own people of the help our money could provide to them and then have the nerve to call us uncaring. They need a spanking. Cutting our funding in half would do just that. And if that doesn’t do it, then we should withdraw from the UN completely. They need to learn not to bite the hand that feeds them.  They need to learn to show gratitude and respect to those who voluntarily do so much to help them.  They need to stop demanding we do things their way when the way we do things is obviously so much more successful and beneficial to not only us but them as well.

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.

Birth Control: Who Should Pay?

This isn’t a moral issue. It isn’t a faith-based issue. It is an issue of equality and fair treatment by law for all citizens of the republic.

If people want to engage in recreational sex, that’s their prerogative; however, taxpayers aren’t supposed to pay for paraphernalia for other recreational activities that have health consequences, such as buying ski equipment and lessons to prevent broken bones or SCUBA gear for divers or ropes and pitons for rock climbers to prevent injuries, so what makes taxpayers responsible for preventing pregnancy due to sex?

No one is requiring anyone to have sex against their own wishes. In fact, there are laws preventing that. No one requires people to do any other recreational activity either. So how did the taxpayer become responsible for paying for those who want to participate in this recreational activity without paying for their own safety? This isn’t a morality issue. It’s common sense.

The government is, in essence, saying, “Anyone who wants to practice a risky sexual lifestyle should be guaranteed a different status than those who do not.” Basically all recreational behaviors, with the possible exception of playing chess or cards or board games, have possible injury or other detrimental health issues as consequences. If taxpayer dollars are only spent on one particular group of people participating in one particular recreational activity, then that sets that group apart from all other citizens who do not participate in that activity, in essence creating a separate class of citizens who are given different status and allowed to receive tax money for their choice and other citizens are not given the same status or funds with regard to their choice. Does this sound equal and fair under the law to anyone?

The government has no place in the bedroom and shouldn’t be responsible for what goes on there. There are plenty of issues that pertain to all citizens on which my taxes can and should be spent. A recreational activity with known possible consequences isn’t one of them, especially when it is a person’s own free choice whether to participate in that activity or not. How does your choice to do something become my responsibility to pay for that choice?

Some argue that, by not preventing the pregnancy the taxpayers are then responsible for an unwanted baby or abortion. This should not be so. Taxpayers don’t pay for people who are laid up with broken bones due to skiing accidents or diving accidents. People drive cars and, if they don’t carry insurance, which they are required to do at their own expense, taxes don’t pay for them when they are in the hospital from a car accident. Why then don’t we require taxes to pay for our car insurance? How about our plane and boat insurance? Aren’t all of these also enjoyable activities which have possible injurious and detrimental health issues as possible consequences? Why should birth control be different?

Either be sensible or be responsible for every little thing for every individual. No free society should have a government which is micro-managing it’s citizens’ lives. We are all well aware of the possibility of a woman becoming pregnant if she participates in sexual intercourse. We are all aware that a woman should have her own choice whether to participate or not. It is illegal for her to be forced whether married, in a relationship or not. No one is forced to drive their own vehicle. We can drive a car or not. Our choice. Is it convenient not to? Of course not. But it is still a choice. No one is forced to fly a plane or a use a boat. Is it fun? Yes. Why is one activity different from another with regard to who pays for possible bad consequences? If anything, driving is more of a necessity because of transportation for work to earn the money to pay the taxes. And yet, no one thinks the government should pay car insurance or registration or forego the taxes on a car. So please explain to me why the government should pay for birth control?

Has our society’s opinion of sex become so overblown (pardon any unintentional pun) that we think it necessary to pay for people to participate in it without fear of consequences? Since when are we supposed to be protected from the consequences of our own actions? Are we going to make sex the most important thing in our society or are we going to find other activities that have a lasting and beneficial impact on our society? Why is this such a big deal in the first place? What is the real reason birth control has become an issue at all? Maybe, if we’re really honest with ourselves in answering that last question, we won’t have to worry about the question posed in the title of this post. Regardless, the bottom line is: If YOU CHOOSE to do something, YOU PAY for it, no one else. You are responsible for your own choices in life. You are not a victim when the choice was yours to make.
