Like many of you, I’ve been scratching my head over the left’s rabid push to defund police in cities across America. Even more puzzling is why they continue to demand this foolishness even after crime ramps up across the board as any intelligent person might expect. Still they scream their demands. While I am no fan of unethical, overbearing police practices, defunding the police is certainly not the answer to the problem! So why the push? Then the light came on…
The Next Step Is a National Police Force!
This may surprise you but in September 2020, President Trump called for this. As far as I know no one, not the media, nor any politician has put this idea forth. So how did I conclude this is in somebody’s works? Bluntly put it was an epiphany that made absolute sense. Simple observation of current events leaves little room for doubt. Consider what we already know.
The movement to defund the police is spreading rather than dying down, despite solid evidence demonstrating how devastating this approach is. Less money means fewer police. Fewer police means more crime. It’s that simple. Those officers still out there are under increased scrutiny. Any mistakes are blown out of proportion.
At the same time, criminal behavior is increasingly promoted. Starting with the rioters and provocateurs in these same cities who are typically let off scot-free. Leftist politicians and the MSM either refuse to criticize their actions or outright condone and encourage them. Meanwhile, these same cities are refusing to try or even hold or try criminals when they are caught! Such actions elude any sense of justice while further demoralizing police.
Meanwhile the MSN seizes on every report featuring either an officer involved shooting of anyone of color or any incidents of so-called “gun” violence. This approach generates fear on both sides of the equation – publicly lynching the police while simultaneously illuminating increasingly dangerous streets. In other words, it’s still a violent world out there but the police are not the answer.
At some point the masses will scream for a solution. They will want protection from rampant crime but “OH NO!” NOT those evil police! Then the “obvious solution” will emerge – a national police force. Why they’d be highly trained and held to strict standards… wouldn’t they? And, of course, answerable to nobody but the federal authorities.
Will It Take a “National Emergency”?
In order to shove this down our throats, look for declaration of a “national emergency”. All of a sudden, the “woke” crowd will recognized the necessity of law enforcement. The politicians will be only too happy to step in and take over all of the law enforcement dutiees in the nation. How will they come to terms with our county sheriffs? This remains to be seen but I have no doubt somebody is trying to think of a way to dispose of our only constitutional law enforcement.
For those who remain level-headed, we know what needs to be done. Local law enforcement must be kept in place. EVERY LEO needs to be better versed on what is and is not constitutionally acceptable. Any and all policies and practices not adhering to constitutional principles need to be abandoned – this includes such practices as asset forfeitures and “no-knock” warrants. Those few officers who abuse their authority should be summarily dismissed and/or brought to justice.
The inherent dangers of a national police force should be evident, especially in light of recent revelations regarding the FBI, NSA, BATF and other agencies. Couple such a concept with proposed red flag laws and we have a recipe for institutional terror in a national scale. Imagine a fully militarized SWAT team descending on your home at 3AM to collect on your unpaid parking ticket, and oh!, while we’re at it we should confiscate any guns, ammo, cash or other valuables laying around just be certain they weren’t obtained by some illegal means.
Even IF no proposal for a national police force ever comes to light, the other abuses mentioned above need to be addressed. Unconstitutional laws need to be removed, police and criminals must be held accountable. The foolishness of defunding the police must be abandoned.
One of the provisions in the new massive “Covid-19 Relief” bill is to increase the minimum wage to $15.00. Recent indications are this may not make the final version but the controllers are bent on pushing this atrocity through one way or another. They will not stop until they’ve reached this latest benchmark. They know it will further cripple, if not destroy small business in this nation. Not only do they not care – this is their ultimate goal.
As a long-time opponent of the minimum wage, I must say up front I am biased. That said, ask yourself this: how will forcing small businesses – shut down in whole and and in part for the past year – to substantially increase their labor costs going to help anyone? While you are considering this, allow me to suggest this exercise:
Instead of raising the minimum wage to $15.00 – why stop there? Isn’t the goal for everybody to live a better life? Why not stop fooling around? If we are going to do this, let’s do it once and for all. What the heck am I talking about?
Instead of raising the minimum wage to $15.00 – let’s REALLY make it worthwhile. Raise the minimum wage to a cool $1,000,000 per year for everyone. Why not? We can ALL be millionaires! Even the government will be flush with new income taxes! Wouldn’t that be just wonderful? What?
What do you mean – how much will a gallon of milk would cost? Who cares! You’d be a millionaire! Now come on! Don’t give me that crap about the price “everything” going up. We would all be rich, rich, RICH! Even those kids at the drive though window would be living the high life! NOW we’re talking!
Uh, yeah, THAT’S what I’m talking about. Once the concept of minimum wages scales up to the sky, my point is easy to see. Minimum wages help no one. Most of you reading this already know this from experience. Inflate wages at the lowest level and you inflate everything. Why? Because all costs and prices are relative. If the labor cost of a burger is 50% of the price of a burger then it if costs $1 in labor to make a burger then the cost of the burger will be $2. If the cost of labor for that burger is $100 then the cost of the burger has to be $200. This is exactly why all minimum wages are insane – the concept is based on flawed logic. What is the alternative?
Kill the minimum wage. Get rid of it entirely. Dump that bitch. Oh my! THEN what?
Of course the first horror stories you will hear will be employers hiring workers for next to nothing. Could that happen? Absolutely it could and it probably would, but then a strange thing will happen. At some point, people willing to work for peanuts will dry up. For employers to get workers, any workers, they will have to pay more. If they want the most qualified workers, they will have to pay even more. The principle involved is simple, well-known and proven. It is called “supply and demand”. As demand increases, the supply costs more. It’s that easy. Prove it?
The fact is, I don’t have to. The fast-food industry already has proven this. In many, many markets, fast food establishments offer above minimum wage, often well above, in order to attract workers. Growing up, fast food was a job for teens and young employees. Years passed finding more and more older workers employed there – why? The reason is simple, the workers were often more readily available then the younger generation.
So my proposal is simple: eliminate the minimum wage. Before long wages will soar as will employment. Everybody benefits – except, of course the controllers who have no business sticking their noses in business matters in the first place. I can’t speak for you, but I care less about them then they care about me. Is this possible or just a pipe dream? Bluntly put, I do not ever expect this to happen because we citizens of this nation are simply too cowed to step up and assume our responsibilities as self-governing individuals. Too bad.
Today Faux, er Fox News (they still actually get SOME things right!), posted this article… if you can still read it.
In yet another attempt to exert control over former President Donald J. Trump, Chuckie Schumer want to evoke the 14th Amendment to permanently keep Trump from any office.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
The 14th Amendment to the Constitution says that Congress can bar people who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S. from holding office. It was originally meant to prevent former Confederates from serving in the government after the Civil War.
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” the amendment says.
Yesterday, I pointed out who the real insurrectionists are and, gee whiz, I hate to say this Chuckie, but YOU are at the front of the line! YOU are leading the charge to try former President Trump for the impeachment charges brought by the House. BOTH actions are EXPLICITLY unconstitutional and thus they are acts of rebellion and/or insurrection.
If that is not clear enough Chuckie, allow me to spell it out for you: Defying our constitution, abusing said law of the land for your own political gain is, in itself, an act of TREASON.
You and your comrades SHOULD be hung for all to see. I will gladly settle for the immediate resignation of all involved. I would much rather do so than have my fellow citizens and myself suffer through a host of arrests and trials. Oh yeah, trials. As a citizen of this constitutional republic, I absolutely believe in DUE PROCESS. Maybe you could dust off one of your old law school books or borrow one, if need be, and look the term up.
John who? John as in the gospel of John – Chapter 12 verses 42,43 specifically.
John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
What does this have to do with the impeachment and upcoming trial of former President Trump? Think about it.
Right now, several Republicans have declared this trial to be “dead in the water” and yet it continues. I remember the smirk sported by Bill Clinton during his trial. If finally dawned on me: he was smirking because he knew the fix was in. This should have been no surprise because the opposition party did not have enough of their people in the Senate to convict – just as things are today. However the Democrats are nothing if not devoted to their party. Most will not budge from the party line. The Republicans? Not so much.
because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
For a politician, their synagogue, or one of them, is the Senate.
There are other parallels between today’s events and the crucifixion of Christ. This trial is as illegal as it gets. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court refuses to preside as constitutionally required. Donald J. Trump is now a private citizen, not a sitting official. The so-called “facts” of this case as revealed to us totally refute the supposition for the case. Furthermore, how can there be any additional “facts” not on record for a charge of publicly inciting a riot? The very idea is an oxymoron.
Do not get me wrong, I am in no way equating Donald J. Trump with our Lord and Savior. However, when you consider the events, then and now, one cannot help to see some similarities in principle.
These days I see a lot of similarities between events recorded in scripture and those unfolding before our eyes. Circumstances may change but the heart of man remains the same. We never seem to learn.
As for the consequences, I believe convicting Trump will be a dire mistake. It will mark the complete and total devastation of our constitution by publicly and unlawfully using our founding document to totally annihilate a private citizen. What is left?
The final word here… “profit” makes me wonder. What does he mean… “profit”? In public service, profit is unacceptable. While we all know the reality works differently, a “public servant” is not allowed to profit. So could he mean “profit” as a private citizen? Again, there is no precedent or rule of law or constitution to carry out such a threat.
Either way… what do we have left as citizens of a constitutional republic?
Every family has secrets. Some come out. Some stay hidden forever. No matter what the secret, chances are Mom knew. She may not know what. She may not have any details but she knew something was wrong. She might ignore it. She might deny it, but she knows something is amiss. Fast forward to the 2020 election.
We are all “Moms”. We know this election stinks – no matter what side of the political spectrum you side with. Maybe you want to hide your head in the sand. It won’t work. The stink pervades everything. Start with the very basis of the voting. First the decree that “everyone” has the right to vote. This is dishonest. No, “everyone” does NOT have a say in our nation’s business. The right to vote is conferred with citizenship. Period. This is the very basis of our constitutional republic. In almost every other instance I will defend the right of someone to refuse to present “papers”. When it comes to voting – it is essential ONLY citizens are voting and thus must present proof of citizenship in the form of a valid voter id.
As for the claim require a voter id somehow discriminates against the poor in our nation – get real. The poorest in our nation qualify for financial help from our governments – local, state and federal. While I personally feel this, in itself, is entirely beyond the framework of our constitution, the simple fact is, our governments take from those who produce and gives to others. In the process, they must identify themselves. In other words – the poorest in our nation are by no means without the means to produce a valid government id. Sorry but that “argument” holds no water.
Of course the radicals on the left go even further by claiming everyone has a right to vote regardless of citizenship. This is absurd. They may as well claim the oceans are really made of soda pop. Of course one must not drink the ocean with a straw but otherwise… My point, for those who need the word “cat” spelled out is, anyone can claim anything but claims do not make anything so.
The bottom line is: not only did the cheaters cheat and cheat big – but they open defy even any sense of the rule of law. This is to the point where they even deny any wrongdoing at all. All of a sudden they are acting like there is no possible way there could be any funny stuff about this election. This after nearly four years of “investigating Russian collusion”. Why the sudden turn about? We all know why – because their man came out on top, that’s why. So what do we do about it?
At the time of this writing the state of California has certified their election, giving Joe Biden enough electoral votes to win the presidency. Is that it then? From my understanding, no, as legal challenges concerning the validity of certain electoral votes remain. I expect the Supreme Court will eventually weigh in. That said, as of now, it appears Biden and Harris could be inaugurated in January 2021. What then?
There’s been talk of war on both sides. The left has been waging guerrilla warfare for years now, lately in the form of attacks on police, riots and other violence upon our nation’s citizens. Their propaganda war has been in full force for an even longer period of time – decades, actually. For the most part, those of us on the right have taken to open and legal means to elicit changes – voting, truly peaceful protests and court challenges, among other things. While one could point to a handful of instances attributed to
right-wing actors, those are not only far and few between but also quickly denounced by nearly everyone on both sides of the issue. You cannot say the same for violence perpetrated on the left. Is this what our nation will resort to? At least one observer believes we are already involved in a civil war. His points are well taken. The problem with this is nobody will win such a conflict. Either the left will destroy our nation to erect an new openly communist state or the right will devastate the land in an effort to save it. It is a no-win situation. Is there an alternative? I believe there is only one way.
We Christians must repent and turn to God Almighty and His Son, our Lord Jesus the Messiah, for the salvation of our nation. It is the only way. Scoff if you will, but in doing so, you will be denying the Lord that bought you with his precious blood. Our nation is in this current sorry state because we turned to the world and subsequently turned our backs to God.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
We see these things happening before our very eyes! I say to you, you can either renounce this evil or you will be counted with those who do such things – whether or not you join them. Isaiah was not finished:
Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Do not forget this was prophesy specifically unto Israel and not onto those of us in this Grace Administration. Even so, can you be so confident and believe you are immune? Seriously? Look around you!
Verse 24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust
Is this not happening before our eyes? Do you not see our nation crumbling? LOOK around you! God Almighty will not protect this nation simply because some of us who claim Christ as Savior remain here! Look at China, Russia, Venezuela, Taiwan, Iran – the list goes on and on. If we want our nation saved – if we want to reclaim the blessings He bestowed upon us – we MUST ASK!
James 4:2 …ye have not, because ye ask not.
Simply asking is not enough – consider the context of the above verse:
James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
There is more to this than these two verses. I urge you to read James in its entirety. Here are a couple more highlights.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
Ask yourself… what will war bring us other than a broken and destroyed nation? Would you rather our land be restored? Those who promulgate evil yearn for our destruction. This is not speculation – they have said as much over and over again. Their minions have literally burned large parts of our nation’s cities. This is the path they would lead us on. We must resist but our resistance must be Godly if it is to succeed.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
As Christians, in this nation and all over the world, we’ve turned away from God Almighty and turned to our own lusts. Many no longer believe God can or will step in. We’ve walked so far away from God, many no longer believe God has the power to change the course of their own lives, much less the entire nation. Many do not believe God parted the Red Sea, brought down the walls of Jericho or raised the dead. If God Almighty cannot raise the dead then did He then not raise Jesus from the dead?
1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
I know there are many among us who believe. It is you whom I now call upon to turn to God in prayer. Pray for His deliverance. Pray for Almighty God to step in to save our nation. Repent of whatever secret sins you’ve been hanging on to and ask for forgiveness. You know He will forgive you. Our nation can be restored but it will not happen by taking arms.
One more admonition – do not think just because I quote the “Old Testament” so frequently, these words have no application today. As I have shown, the state of our nation and the world speaks loudly. However there remains other indications of my words. Below are just two songs written by modern artists. One of these – Rick Pino – proceeds his song with what is described as a word of prophesy. The Old Testament proof of a prophet was whether his words came true – 100%.
Do not be fooled – they are communists… pure unadulterated Marxists. They are here in our nation and bent on taking it down. None of this is new. None of this should surprise anyone. What may be a shock is the sudden realization that today, right here in the United States of America the Marxists have unleashed their “Tet Offensive” against us – aided and abetted by our “own” representatives and corporate America. Strong words you say? Yes.
My words are fully document able – not by any “extensive research” on my part. Not at all. ALL I needed to come to this conclusion was read the headlines, a few articles by established and well-trusted authors and THINK.
One such article is published on The American Spectator. Many of the details laid out in this article have already been heavily established by other well-respected publishers. Such as “Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrice Cullors repeatedly says ‘We are trained Marxists‘.” If this is the first time you’ve seen this quote, you need to crawl out from under that rock. Another reference in this article is a video interview published long ago by G. Edward Griffin with a Soviet defector and former KGB operative named Yuri Bezmenov.
I am familiar enough with this interview that I didn’t need to see it again. I know exactly what he said and how relevant his words are today. Maybe this quote will ring familiar to some of you:
“[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. […] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.”
― Yuri Bezmenov
Yeah. That’s right – ol’ Yuri is the guy who made the phrase “useful idiots” famous. Is that bell ringing yet? So why is this relevant today? Look around you. This from Seattle:
This is not an isolated concept by any means. Surely you’ve heard repeated calls for “reparations” for decedents of former slaves.
So… should you be worried? No. Not in my opinion. Here’s why..
My trust is in God Almighty. In an ideal situation Christians in this nation would turn to Him – individually and in groups and such would put a stop to all this in very short order. Even if I am the “only one” turning to God – I assure you I am not – God is faithful to honor my pleas. So what if the worst happens and I end up somewhere I really do not want to be? I remain faithful. Consider the journey of Joseph. He was sold as a slave. He bounced back again and again until eventually he was counted only second to Pharaoh himself. Sometimes things looked pretty bleak but Joseph never lost sight of God. The same goes for Daniel. And David. Scripture is filled with examples of this lesson. Focus on God.
Lately I’ve been reading Psalm 37… a LOT. It is an amazing, inspiring Psalm. No doubt you’ve stumbled across parts of it yourself such as…
“Psalms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth;”
While this is a great quote, when taken in context, it is even better:
Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
WOW! This entire Psalm bursts with such thoughts! Right on the heels of this passage there is another shouting out to my ears:
Psalms 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
Look closely at Verse 15 “Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.”
Have I not said nearly the same thing? Give credit and glory to God, as it is from HIS Word where anything worthwhile I say comes from. How else can I so confidently say the house of cards the leftist radicals have built MUST come tumbling down?! The underlying principles come from God Almighty and because they are principles they must apply in every relevant circumstance.
We must be and remain faithful. God will not turn His back on us but if we turn our back on Him, He may withhold help from us. This is why I do not worry. This is why I will not fear.
Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
This last bit especially makes me wonder… are we THERE yet? Will we, as a nation, bow down to the likes of these controllers to allow them the power to follow us everywhere? To spy on us anywhere we go?
Even if this goes away… do you really think it means a “win” for liberty? It does not.
Long ago in my first sales job as a stockbroker – i.e. a glorified salesman for a stock of the month club – part of my job consisted of “qualifying” the prospect. In essence I had to find out how much money he had to invest. I naively asked: “How much of this should I go for?”
My boss said “ALL of it! Then settle for as much as you can get.”
At some point I realized how wrong this approach was, but that is beside the point. The point here is this is exactly the strategy of the controllers is… always. They set their sights on far more than they know they can get, then they “settle” for less. And they always come back for more!
Now… suppose we actually see some “huge uproar” concerning Bill Gates and company. Don’t count on it but just suppose… what do you think will happen? Yep. The controllers will “settle” for a lesser plan. Don’t worry they’ll be back for more and more and more.
My question to YOU is… are you ready to put a stop to this nonsense? The controllers have NO RIGHTS to our liberty. None. WE have FULL AUTHORITY under our constitution to govern ourselves. If WE do not like some law, rule or decree – we have EVERY RIGHT to tell our representatives to back off – to either cease and desist entirely or find another way to achieve a goal we find worthy.
We have stewardship of this nation and thus WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to ensure our representatives and our public employees follow the law of the land – the Constitution. This means the citizens of this nation should be insisting those public employees bent on usurping power and authority they DO NOT HAVE be brought up on charges of treason. In my eyes their attempts are attempts to suborn the law of the land and institute their own version of government in place of the framework laid by our respective constitutions.
Their goal is obvious: replace our constitutional republic with their own lawless rule. If we do not act and act quickly we will pass the point of no return. I ask again…
In a moment I’ll link to an important read from John Whitehead at The Rutherford Institutite but first, my two-cents worth…
The old saying goes “The Road to hell is paved with good intentions.” When I look at what our “representatives” do day in and day out, I very much doubt this. Oh, they certainly pay lip service to “good intentions” but their real intent should be clear to anyone looking with a rational eye. They want power. Power is their end all and be all. With it they also gain wealth -OUR wealth. You need not take my word for it. Just look!
This pandemic throws back the curtain, revealing the true nature of those now in power. Witness their unbridled lust for power. In the article below John Whitehead details what is happening RIGHT NOW in the present. These are not “conspiracy theories”. They are not visionary predictions. It is all going on right before your eyes. The question is what are YOU going to do about it?
The only real power these despots have is what WE let them have. As citizens in this Constitutional Republic WE have the authority by right of birth. The controllers control. This is what they do. It is their nature. Their nature does not confer the authority to control any more than your natural tendency to procreate confers the authority to commit adultery. OUR authority, OUR birthright is a gift from Almighty God. With our birthright, we are endowed with stewardship of our nation. If we decline to step up and accept the responsibility inherent in our birthright – we will lose it all.
How do you put all of this into one picture? Does anyone get this now?
The problem is not the farmer…
The problem IS government!
First it was produce and milk. Now it is cows and pigs. The other story is rising food prices. Wait! What?
Does ANYONE remember basic economics? You know… supply and demand? Yeah that.
What does the LAW – and by this I mean a natural law not some idiotic words passed by some elected dolts – of SUPPLY AND DEMAND say?
As supply increases prices go DOWN
As demand increases prices go UP
Okay so we’ve got supply and we’ve got demand but food is rotting and people are hungry. What’s the problem? Let me spell it out for you:
In a free market – farmers are free to sell their goods. People are free to buy them. Those who buy them are free to use them and/or resell them at a profit. A free market is not complicated. Adding government is like tossing a dump truck full of wrenches into the works and then adding molasses. For good measure they toss in few loads of sawdust, horseshit and just about anything else to gum up the works. Oh, yeah, and then the tax everything that moves ’cause they need some pocket money.
Am I being harsh? Not at all. I’m just trying to paint a picture here. Don’t get me wrong – I do not “hate” government. To do so would be to hate myself as I live in a constitutional republic so “I” am essentially government. I admit it. I’ve been a bad steward. We all have. It is now time to get up of my can and roll up my sleeves. I need your help because I cannot do this alone, nor was I meant to. I am but one person. We ALL need to pitch in.
The first order of business as I see it is to tell our respective governments to back off. Cease and desist from enforcing idiotic laws preventing farmers and customers alike from doing what needs to be done.
This is a short term answer. The problems the farmers – all of us face – are not going to go away easily. Part of the problem is we’ve allowed government to favor large corporate farms – meat, milk and produce factories – if you will. They wanted their “children” to be just like them – oversized and centralized. We need to resolve to get away from all that.
None of this is going to be easy. Chances are we will suffer some – maybe a lot. But this suffering will be nothing compared to the coming disaster should we continue to allow government to continue to bolster and consolidate their power. The time is now. We need to act.
Yeah Ralphie, the story is out and you are outed for the hypocrite you are. My own feelings are mixed really. Can I really blame you for refusing to adhere to an unconstitutional decree? I cannot, but what I CAN and WILL do is chide your sorry carcass for attempting to usurp authority you do not have – and then ignoring your own orders. In the words of the notable animated pundit – the venerable Bugs Bunny… “What a maroon!”
Get over yourself. You are an employee. Your legacy may well be “the man who destroyed the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
Headlines in the news this morning include warnings about the “second wave” of the Wuhan Flu is expected to be worse than the first. (Fox) and another warning about an even deadlier mutation emerging.
Meanwhile… the controllers tighten their grip…
Ask yourself… where is all this going?
It is obvious to me from the controllers want us to believe they know best. After all they are in control… not us. They are our betters after all. WHO says? Why they do, of course!
Get this: they know nothing… IF that! Take the vaunted Dr. Anthony Fauci, we now know he was wrong – very, very wrong about his projections, as were so many top “experts”. Now we have more experts on every side of the argument all saying different things. It was Fauci who held back on the quinine-based treatment. He wanted more tests. How many people would die without any hope before “he” would be satisfied? Granted, while these medications showed promise and have been used for over 40 years, they are not without drawbacks. But if you could choose between taking a risk that could save your life and certain death… what would you choose? That’s the point – the choice should be yours not some ivory-tower egghead’s.
A few posts back I made a mistake in my own projections. I owned up to it but you know what? After I said I was wrong – and I was – the stats came out on several real “experts” in the field with expensive computerized knowledge and mountains of data. Guess what? Their projections were far more inaccurate than mine. Granted, I only extrapolated a couple of weeks and, bluntly put, my methods were sloppy as hell. Even so, my mistake was tiny compared to the ‘big boys’.
My point here is there are a few – a comparative handful really – people who are raping, pillaging and destroying our nation based on data and projections that may turn out to be… “Oh well, guess we were wrong on that one! Heh, heh.” Well screw that.
Now the democrats and other politicians – do not think for a minute party matters when power is at stake – want to corrupt our elections. Governor Ralphie Northam of Virginia has already pissed in that pool by suspending the need for voter ID.
This and every other despicable thing the controllers are doing has got to stop. WE CITIZENS have got to PUT a stop to it. Enough is enough. It is time to take up our God-given authority and reclaim our birthright.
Good article reveals the underlying truth on who gets chosen to run for office and why. Spoiler: It’s the money, honey.
And here ya’ll thought those guys and gals cared about – what’s the word? – oh yeah “issues”. HA! Take special notice of the term the author uses to describe party controllers – he calls them “party professionals” and this is what they are. They are the “deep state” of the political parties. Their job is to please their masters. Who are their masters? Those folks with cash in hand. Like I said, for politicians the bottom line is the bottom line.
