What Do You Stand For and Why?

Some things are worth standing against. To compromise simply to avoid sounding a discordant note is to be spineless.

When people break the law, when they use powerful agencies to enable them to break the law in order to thwart the results of legal elections, when they threaten to destroy people’s livelihood, family, and good name simply because they disagree with them, that is more than worthy of a fight. The rule of law MUST be maintained because this is a nation of laws. It is not a nation of mitigating circumstances and kumbaya moments.

These things are at the bedrock of our nation. If we compromise on them, the foundation is built on sand. And it doesn’t matter which political parties or special interest groups are involved. What matters is the law. Those who break the law must be held accountable according to the law, not out of hatred, spite, or personal agenda, but for justice. If one is not up to the fight to preserve justice, then they need to get out of the way and let those who are willing to wage such a fight do so. “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”– Alexander Hamilton

There never was anything of value or consequence achieved that didn’t come with a hefty price and a lot of sacrifice and only when such a cost is paid can the benefit be realized.

We must put emotion aside and look at things logically. Frustration grows exponentially when logical minds butt up against emotionally reactive individuals. That frustration leads to bad consequences. Emotions are unstable and unreliable. Facts and logic are always far more stable. Lady Justice is blindfolded for a reason. She isn’t swayed by emotion. Sad faces, arrogant smirks, rags, silk robes, none of that matters because she can’t see any of them.

Try to stay away from your emotions. Try not to worry about how you FEEL about things. Try to be unemotional. Loyalty is a fine virtue, but be willing to carefully and honestly examine why you are loyal to the beliefs you have chosen to align yourself with. If it’s simply to avoid a fight, you may want to think that over again. You must have strength in your convictions. Jesus said, if you are lukewarm, he will spew you out of his mouth. That should be a great indication to us all about the need for knowing why we agree with anyone or any idea and how important it is to be willing to stand against those who would degrade what we are committed to.

How strong is your faith in what you say you stand for? How far will you go to appease others just to avoid conflict? WHAT DO YOU REALLY STAND FOR AND WHY? How important is it to you? Is it all based on emotion? Is 80% of it based on emotion? These are questions every one of us must know for ourselves because, when what you really profess to stand for is threatened, you have to decide what you’re willing to risk to continue to stand.

Liberalism, Politics

Liberalism Equals True Facism

The left only knows how to dish it.  They talk the talk all the time, but they can never walk the walk.  It’s fine for them to use the most horrific, terrifying, tasteless, obnoxious, outlandish, vile, vulgar, bullying, destructive, and harmful tactics against others, but as soon as anyone says the least insulting word or makes the least unflattering comment about them, suddenly it’s hate speech or needs to be litigated.  They can say anything they like and it’s free speech, but no one else can say a word against them.  They’re the fascists that they accuse everyone else of being.

According to Merriam Webster, the definition of fascism is:  A political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

According to the left, their political philosophy, movement or regime most certainly exalts race above the individual.  Example: Michael Brown and any BLM advocate, including Maxine Waters who claims a woman of color cannot be impeached.

According to the left, their political philosophy, movement or regime most certainly stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader (Obama saying he would do what he wanted with his pen and phone regardless of Congress), severe economic and social regimentation (decades of welfare entitlements draining the taxpayers), (affirmative action programs to force people to conform to dictated regimental requirements).

But most telling of all is the left’s political philosophy, movement or regime that forces suppression of opposition, as evidenced by their constant funding of rioters, student protesters, and educators at every grade level who refuse to allow anyone to express their point of view openly and freely if it is in opposition to the left’s point of view.

About the only thing that doesn’t prove the left to be fascists is that they don’t exalt the United States of America.  They want to destroy the nation and remake it into their facist utopia.

Griffin is no different from the rest of the leftist liberals.  They’re all of one mind and require everyone else to either agree with them or be destroyed, and they don’t hold themselves to any of the standards they require of everyone else.  They are the true fascists.

Is it Constitutional?, Law, Politics, Uncategorized

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.


The Pledge of Allegiance

For decades, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited every day in every public school classroom in America.  The pledge included the words “under God” and anyone whose religion precluded them from saying those words was allowed to refrain from doing so.  No one was hurt by the recital.  No one was forced to participate.  Somehow, the simple act of reciting the pledge everyday, before beginning the mundane tasks of the school day, reinforced a feeling of patriotism and respect for our country and those who defend  and serve it.  I fail to see how patriotism and respect for such values could possibly be harmful to anyone or offensive to anyone within my country’s borders.

Today, children in public school do not recite the pledge, although the country’s flag is present in every classroom.  Today, when the pledge is spoken, people feel the words “under God” should be removed.  There is an underlying sentiment growing that claims people may be offended.

Excuse me, but this country has been built on a foundation of freedoms that cannot be denied anyone because those freedoms are not granted by people or government.  Those freedoms are given to everyone born on the planet by their Creator, whether they believe in a creator or not.  And such freedoms cannot be taken away from anyone by people or government, if justice based on freedom is observed.

Anyone who is born in this country, or comes here from another country, knows that one of our most basic freedoms is that of speech.  The founding fathers knew that suppression of speech in any way can lead to tyranny.  They also knew that some people would be offended by certain types of speech, mainly the people running for political office.  They felt that it was most important that anyone could say anything about any other person and, as long as it was not an outright lie, it must be allowed by law.  Some of the founders said some pretty horrific things about their opponents during campaigns.  It wasn’t considered anything that needed to be restricted by law.  If people were offended, then they were offended.  Freedom of speech had nothing to do with not offending someone.  Quite the opposite.  Freedom of speech meant someone would definitely be offended, but one had the right to say it.  There is no amendment that protects any right in regard to being offended or having one’s feelings hurt by what is said.

Because of this country and its adamant belief in and defense of one’s right to speak freely, many people of different ideas, creeds, religions, political views and foreign origins can and do come here to enjoy such freedom of speech.  Many people born here have huge differences in their views and beliefs.  However; once here, no one has the right to curtail anyone else’s speech simply because they may be offended by it or don’t agree with it.

No one is prevented from leaving this country, unless they have broken criminal laws which restrict their rights to move about.  If anyone is offended by someone else’s speech, they have the right to move away where they don’t have to hear it, but they do not have the right to stop the other person from speaking.

So, where did this idea that we mustn’t say the Pledge of Allegiance in a public classroom, which is funded by taxpayers’ dollars and provided by this nation which is based on freedom of speech, come from?  Who is it that determines what can and can’t be said in a public classroom?  The stars and stripes are clearly visible in every governmental office and any other place that is funded by the government (the citizenry).  That is a public acknowledgement of support for the nation.  We are acknowledging that we agree with our nation’s basic creeds and laws by funding these institutions.  We have the right to speak out against them, but we support them overall.

If we restrict the pledge, then we are restricting our freedom of speech and allowing those who may be offended by our speech to dictate to us what we are and are not allowed to say.  That is totally unconstitutional at its base and tyrannical at it top.  The worst part is that, by not reciting the Pledge of Allegiance each and every day of the school year, our children are not learning the importance of allying themselves with the very country in which they live–the country which is providing everything they will learn that day and all the implements used to teach them what they learn.  Our children are not learning that patriotism is the bedrock of what they are benefitting from.  They are not seeing the adults they are most influenced by outside their homes showing respect for their country.

It’s a simple thing, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, but it has such a deep and significant meaning and can influence so much in a child’s life that it should never be overlooked.  It should never be done away with in school.  Anyone who would be offended by such a pledge either doesn’t understand it or doesn’t deserve the benefits they are receiving by living here.  Why come here if you aren’t willing to ally yourself with this nation?  Why reap the rewards if you are not willing to throw in your lot to make the rewards possible?  How hypocritical can anyone be to take what they want and then complain about the praise others give to the government that has provided for them?

I love my country.  There is much that has been done to harm it from within, but if anyone is offended by my praise of this country, then they don’t belong here.  This country, while far from perfect, has done more to lift others out of poverty and degradation than any other in the history of mankind.  There are many fine countries with great men and women, but this land of freedom, this great experiment of allowing man to govern himself in freedom, is by far the greatest of any.  I would rather pledge my allegiance to this great country than any other, and I will continue to do so proudly, no matter who or how much it may offend anyone, anywhere at any time.  They have the freedom to leave, but they do not have the freedom to stop my speech or anyone else’s to prevent their offense.  My freedom to speak came from my God.  If they can convince Him to restrict my speech, then I will obey.  Until then, I will speak freely in my country.  No man, only God, will restrict my speech.  And I will expect anyone in a public place to be free to say the Pledge of Allegiance to this country and I will fight to my death for them to have that freedom.  Moreover, I will fight to remove from office any political figure who attempts to restrict anyone’s right to say the Pledge of Allegance, including the words “under God” or any other freedom of speech.
