Virginia’s Primary 2024 – The Stink of Corruption

Per my last post on this topic, I’d written off this primary, saying the outcome doesn’t matter, or rather what is really important is to hold whoever sits in the 6th Congressional Seat of Virginia accountable, as all citizens should endeavor for all representatives. Now this primary result DOES matter. What changed?

Allegations of Impropriety, i.e. the stink of corruption. THIS cannot stand.

It’s no secret I voted for Bob Good, I posted here the reasons why I intended to do so despite certain reservations. Today’s post should not be considered any sort of “sour grapes” on my part. I’d accepted the situation and moved on. The news of shenanigan both surprised and shocked me. I just  happened upon them doing other things and there it was.

Here is the story as released to the press by Peter Alexander

I don’t know who Peter Alexander or Chris Faraldi are. A quick search suggests both are politician types. both republicans. Alexander seems to be more conservative. The early into in the above letter suggests he and Faraldi do not see eye to eye on many issues. In fact, Alexander has little good to say about Faraldi.

Alexander is calling for a recount. I will go further than this. There needs to be a full investigation into these allegations with full intent to prosecute any alleged illegal actions. Simply saying “oops, my bad” and sliding past a potentially devious attempt to cheat cannot be tolerated.

As an election official I took an oath as did every other citizen participating as such. I swore to support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia and support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia

What good is an affirmation if there is no consequence for ignoring it?

Today, Monday, June 24, 2024 I’ll be hosing an X space event on this at 9AM. All are invited. You may speak if a slot becomes available.

Bob Good – John McGuire Virginia 5th Congressional District Primary – June 18th 2024: The Decision

 

Recently I posted concerning Donald J. Trump’s endorsement of John McGuire over Bob Good for Virginia’s 5th Congressional District. This is my district. As of now Bob Good is my congressman, so I’m taking this seriously – VERY seriously.

That said, I’m sticking with Bob Good. He has my vote for this primary. I won’t go far as to call this an “endorsement” – not because I hesitate to do so but my opinion is that of another mere citizen. As such it should hold no more weight than this. Besides this, I doubt if any endorsement from me would do Bob Good any, well, good.

As I stated before, I have a couple of issues with Mr. Good. After contacting his office via his website and official “contact” form, I received no response. None. This is bad. Not just for me but for any constituent. Secondly, he needs to get on the ball concerning the J6 political prisoners. All they can do is suffer unimaginable horrors while most us go about our daily lives without giving them a thought.

As for Trump’s issues with Bob Good, well, sure I understand his problem but he’s also forgiven others for much worse than endorsing his rival. I saw the video MTG posted and Bob made sense. At some point I was giving DeSantis some consideration myself. I stopped short of any idea of voting for him but I was warming to the idea of him in the VP slot. Paul Ryan’s endorsement stopped that idea cold.

All in all, Bob Good is a solid conservative as far as I can see but I wanted another opinion. Then I realized I could try to reach out to someone I’ve come to respect. Nick Freitas.

If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he is a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates. In fact he represents the district where I once lived – Culpeper ,VA. I’ve written about him before. He stood tall while speaking against gun control in the House. He stood for citizens during the 2A Sanctuary movement. In fact he is the ONLY Virginia representative who joined citizens as they swarmed county board meetings in support of 2A Sanctuary resolutions in my memory. Beyond that, he famously won a write-in campaign for his Delegate seat when a paperwork snafu bumped him from the official ballot.

So I reached out on a Twitter dm and he replied. Note, I warned him in advance that I might post his response on this blog with his permission. After he responded, I asked for and was granted said permission. Here is what Nick Freitas had to say…

Hello Andrew.

I have endorsed Bob Good. I think Bob is a very genuine conservative and he stands by his word, which goes a long way with me. In Congress I am looking for people who are willing to risk everything to stand up for what they believe in, even if it means standing against your own leadership at times.

I have known John McGuire for some time. John ran against me in a primary once. He accused me of being a “California liberal” and a “swamp creature,” despite the fact that I have always had a better voting record than him. He also likes to claim that he had the convention “stolen” from him despite the fact that I won all 3 rounds. I know that sounds personal, but the bottom line is, I have a problem with a guy who tells you he is going to run a clean race, because we’re friends, and then as soon as it becomes obvious that he is behind in the polls, he starts lying about you because he wants to win.

While it was all good, what really stood out was John McGuire’s accusations. Nick Freitas is anything but a “California liberal” and certainly not a “swamp creature” as far as I can tell. In fact those very accusations mirror exactly the globalist tactic of accusing one’s opponents of those things they are doing themselves. This as much confirmed what I previously learned about McGuire being hand-picked by Keven McCarthy.

By the way, didn’t Trump also endorse and stand firmly behind Kevin McCarthy?

We all know The Donald is not perfect. Who amongst us is? Why, then, do we expect perfection from Bob Good? I don’t. That said, I do support his bid for re-election to the House of Representatives and, should he be successful, I will then earnestly take him to task about those issues I brought up.

However, should you win, Mr. McGuire, take notice, your own words and actions have dropped your trust level a few notches on my scale. Thus you will be subject to even greater scrutiny from me. No matter who wins this nomination, I expect you to fully represent this district – not your political cronies.

NOT Forgotten! Two J6 Political Prisoners Highlighted

Today I found two separate and very different stories about two J6 political prisoners. While their experiences are different, what they have in common is they both have lost their liberty and their lives are forever changed.

Once again I will point out – my grievance is not about their guilt or innocence but about the total disregard for their rights as citizens under our Constitution.

Patrick Byrne Answers Trump’s Call To Support J6 Political Prisoner Ryan Samsel When All Organizations Refused

A Day in the Life

It matters not whether you agree with what they did or are accused of doing.

It matters not whether they broke the law or not.

No one deserves this treatment.  As Americans we have protested and marched against the inhumane treatment  hapless souls in other countries. We have railed against poor treatment of animals. And yet we look away, or worse, cheer, how these J6 political prisoners are being treated day in, day out for years now. For what? For some misguided “sense” of patriotism? Since when do we suspend proper treatment of the accused?  For SHAME!

This shame is doubled for those of you schooled in law and DOUBLE THAT SHAME for any politician schooled in law. And for you in our judiciary? If all you can do is look the other way or worse, throw up your hands declaring, you cannot do anything – you should resign immediately. You are a disgrace to our justice system.

 

Mitch McConnell Stepping Down – WHO will China Choose to Replace Him?

While some might jump for joy at the news – me? Meh. Like the headline says – who will China replace him with.

BREAKING: MCCONNELL TO STEP DOWN AS REPUBLICAN SENATE LEADER

Let’s not forget his position as Minority Leader and Majority Leader before that is an elected one. ALL the “republican” Senators voted for him – or enough to put give him the nod. Shouldn’t that tell you something?

What?! Do you think all those Senators who voted for him were unaware of his ties to China? Were they clueless about his RINO record? Of course not. They knew. They voted him in anyway. Why? Money and  power – that’s why.

Once again, I’ll remind you what the game is in Washington (not to mention nearly every elected office in this nation) – it’s stay in office or move to a better office. Like McCarthy in the House, McConnell held massive purse strings to “help” his comrades get elected again and again. Beyond this, I have no idea what other juice these guys carry in their squirt guns but it is enough to allow them to kneel to their masters – and WE the People ain’t them.

One thing I can guarANtee you – whoever takes McConnell’s place will be a died-in-the-wool statist – most likely someone who needs to constantly brush off the lint from China’s pocket.

Just one more reason why WE the People need to step up and throw these bastards out. It ain’t gonna happen overnight. Let’s start with November 2024 with some massive action to put “republicans” in all those offices up for bid. After that, we can roll up our sleeves and begin to let them know whose boss in this nation.

Primary Day Virginia – March 5, 2024 What you should know.

UPDATE: March 5 will ONLY be to choose the Presidential nominee. The Congressional and Senate Primaries (and who knows what else!) will be held in June

Maybe I was supposed to know this but I didn’t. You don’t need to ask me, I’ll just say it – in this day of the “information age” either the communications skills of those “in the know” simply suck or we have far too much information and far too few filters. As one of those filters, I may have to shoulder part of the blame IF I can ever find out where to find such information. Past experience indicates such “obvious” sources such as the Virginia Department of Elections  are sometimes worthless. For example, I rather thought this link would simply be posted on VDoE home page but no, I didn’t find it until I searched specifically for Virginia Primary Elections 2024. I swear I performed the same search earlier to come up with different results. Do note that details for the June Primaries are “not yet available”. Huh.

Virginia’s PRESIDENTAL primary is just ONE week away.

There will be TWO primaries rolled into one on Tuesday – one for the democrats and one for the republicans. Other parties can go fish. Actually, the only qualification to vote in either (but NOT both) primaries is one must be eligible to vote in Virginia – specifically in one’s district.

To date, every hopeful who signed up to be on the ballot is still eligible but most have “suspended” their campaigns so voting for them won’t count. They all have up to the day before the primary (IF my understanding is correct) to withdraw.

The bottom line is – Slo Mo Joe will probably be the pick for the dems while I have little doubt Donald J. Trump will run away with ALL of Tuesday’s primaries, including Virginia’s.

Now for VA’s Next Primary…

Drilling down this really is only specific to  Congressional District 5  in Virginia and our representative Bob Good who is being primaried. From The National File:

Video: John McGuire Pledged Not to Primary Bob Good, Now He’s Doing Just That

If you like your republlic you can keep it - Ben FranklinDuring my recent participation in my county’s “mass meeting” I had the opportunity to ask one of the U.S. Senate hopefuls what the deal was with John McGuire. Now this fellow (the one I was talking to) runs in DC circles so I’m pretty confident he knew the buzz. He said McGuire was hand-picked to primary Bob Good by non other than Kevin McCarthy which is exactly what the article above will tell you. That’s enough for me.

Bluntly put, I like Bob Good for the most part. Of the several congressmen who have served in the district where I lived over the years, he stands out as someone who  actually demonstrates constitutional principles. My one bitch is he seems to have backed away from the J6 political prisoner issue. While I’m not as vocal here as I was, I have not forgotten them. I bring it up to EVERY person I talk to who has anything to do with government OR even shows an interest. It’s that important. Bob Good disappoints on that one. Even so, this is no reason to dump him for a conservative pretender, let’s face facts a RINO EXTRAORDINAIRE like John McGuire. He came off as phony from the starting block – a “Real Christian” indeed. What?! Is he hinting I’ve been faking it all these years because he hasn’t seen me that time he was in church? (for the record, I have no idea what, denomination he ascribes to, what, if any, church he attends and how often he attends one. What I can tell you is there are indeed some “regular church people” whom I might be surprised to see come eternity. Then again, it’s not like I worked my way in so…

In any case, I’m making no endorsements here. What I am doing is encouraging you, wherever you are to vote in this primary and again in November and then some.  What do I mean “and then some”?

First – know whom you are voting for! To be blunt, I was surprised when Bob Good replaced Denver Riggleman. I only later found out Riggleman tended to side with the statists more than with us constitutionalists.

NEXT – PLEASE – get out the vote! Talk to people, encourage others, register more voters. We are NOT going to see victory unless we overrun the polls with real, live voters. We MUST overwhelm the ballot stuffing cheaters and the “voters” from the graves.

You need not be a VA District 5 voter to make a difference. In fact, your impact could easily  be greater if you happen to have a hand in turning the tide on one of the “blue” districts.

Keep this in mind: WE the People ARE the Government! it’s about time we started acting like it.

Trump Outrage – The $7.1 million Judgement

Flatly put I have not followed this crap closely at all. I think I know the basis but beyond that… no. What DO I know?

This “person”, I won’t mention any names as my pocket have holes in them, sued Donald Trump for some alleged sexual misconduct. Trump denied the allegations, denied knowing this person, and, well, has not admitted to much of anything about this case as far as I can tell. He was found “guilty”. A civil suit followed where he was just found “guilty” again and the jury awarded damages for “defamation” on “Friday: $7.1 million – $11 million – plus punitive $65 million in “damages!” according to the Gateway Pundit. So why am I putting “guilty” and “defamation” in quotes?

Because I find this garbage hard to believe, that’s why. It is far easier for me to believe Trump was railroaded by biased prosecutors, in biased courts, and found guilty by biased juries. Look at the other trials Trump is involved in. Look at the monkey trails the J6 political prisoners have been dragged through – at least those who have FINALLY been granted their day in court. Bias seems to abound. The Trump trials are no different, in fact, they seem to be monkey trials on steroids.

OUTRAGEOUS?

All this is bad enough but are they really cause for outrage? Absolutely. First of all, if every trial mentioned above I’ve seen strong evidence of constitutional misconduct – meaning the defendant’s constitutional rights have been disregarded – sometimes totally. As I’ve said before JUST on the government’s failure to grant the J6 political prisoners a speedy trial, they should ALL be let loose, their cases dismissed, and reparations paid. I won’t get into how they’ve been otherwise mistreated and abused. Then there’s Trump.

He’s been denied attorney-client privilege, his income tax records have been made public, his home raided with questionable warrants. None of these constitutional issues have been raised by me but by legal experts who have openly brought them to light. It’s all been done right out in the open for us all to see. Dare I say -unabashedly so. But this latest is the worst.

According the Gateway Pundit, the plaintiff

“went on CNN with her attorney Roberta Kaplan went on with CNN to brag about how Carroll was only able to file the lawsuit after New York Democrats changed the laws and extended the statute of limitations for sexual assault in the state.”

Do note, from here, I am expressing my own, NON-LEGAL opinion per my right as a citizen of these United States.

Now wait just one gol-darned minute! What!? Read that again.

“went on CNN with her attorney Roberta Kaplan went on with CNN to brag about how Carroll was only able to file the lawsuit after New York Democrats changed the laws and extended the statute of limitations for sexual assault in the state.

Did anyone else in this nation learn about “ex post facto” laws?

Article I, Section 9, Clause 3:

No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.

HELLOOOOO! If my poor, old memory serves correct, “ex post facto” is Latin meaning “after the fact”. What “I” remember learning is this means legislatures cannot pass a law making something punishable by law after something already happened.

Yes, I know this is not the first time. Read up on the atrocious Gun Control Act of 1968 for one heinous example, but come on! REALLY? It seems obvious to me THIS law was passed specifically to “get Trump”.

If nothing else we should ALL be outraged by the total disregard of the law of our land – our constitution. If we don’t have that, we have nothing folks. NOTHING! We do not have a nation. Our borders are not borders at all. The only good news is that would be the elites also have no legal legs to stand on. Our land is a land of anarchy because we have no basis for law. Oops!

Sorry assholes, you can’t have it both ways. Oh don’t worry about them. Once the formal declaration dissolving our constitutional republic is made, the usurpers will have armed enforcers in place to ensure obedience to their new order.

THIS is what we are faced with. The question is how are we going to deal with it? My own thought is we MUST win the 2024 election on the Presidential level and as many lower levels as we can. If we elect another Jack Ass then I see no future for our nation at all. It will only be a matter of time before our nation is formally dissolved.

Until such time as the announcement is made formally dissolving our country, we remain a Constitutional Republic and retain full power and authority as free citizens. We are at a crucial point – use it or lose it.

While you think on this, please do pray for our nation.

A Trip to the Hospital and Current Events

Okay the hospital first. It was a scheduled trip yesterday for a minor procedure. No cause for alarm. The only reason I’m bringing this up is because of one observation I made. It just hit me this morning.

Setting the stage, I had an endoscopy, i.e. the doc put a scope down my throat for a looksee. To that end I was knocked out. (good thing as I’ve got a heck of a gag reflex) Sooo… my wife (or someone) had to accompany me to drive me home.

As I was waiting for the doctor to show up to explain what he’d done, etc. my wife checked her phone. She made a call, then another, then another. I’ll tell you upfront she hates talking on the phone (or so she always told me) so I ascertained she was on there for good reason. She was. You see, she had to take off from her business, right at the start of her busy season, to comewith me. Now I tried to put this off until after the rush period but she would have none of it, bless her  heart.

You’ve probably guessed by now she was taking care of business. In the hospital. While we were waiting in the recovery room for the doctor. So what’s the big deal? Think about this for a moment in context.

She was doing business miles from her office. She could take calls, make calls, and stay connected without stepping foot in her actual  place of business. My epiphany?

If she can do this, WE can do this as citizens. WE can take care of our nation’s business, or our part of it, no matter where we are at the moment. Sorry, but now we have no excuses. How can we insist we are “too busy” to hold our representatives accountable? How can we say we just don’t have time to make our voices heard? We can be “there” from anywhere, no matter where “there” is.

Truly, the technology has arrived to enable us, empower us all to take back control  – to truly do our bit to govern ourselves. We have the technology, what we lack is a framework. We still need to put the infrastructure in place to exercise this power. Now for me, that word “infrastructure” is a bit scary, eliciting visions of roads and bridges and power lines. None of this is what I’m talking about. We have all that. Again, the technology, the tools are available, all we need do is put them in place and apply them.

For instance – Zoom meetings. Now I’m using “Zoom” because we all know what this is so we can envision it. It need not be this specific platform, but imagine a county, town, or school board meeting in a Zoom-like setting. The representatives are all there (or dialed in), as well as citizens both physically present and also dialed in. Meanwhile, we can also all access a forum to address various issues. I like to forum format as it lends itself nicely to segmenting topics so they are easy to track and discuss.

Websites already collect and disseminate documents, calendars, and other information pertaining to government activities. We can make them better, more responsive but the basis exists already.

How Does All This Relate to Current Events?

Let’s start with Trump in New Hampshire. He nailed it and this right after he nailed Iowa. One pundit stated Trump is actively working to rack up better margins than any candidate in history to crush any contention that team Biden won 2020.  At least that is how I read his views. He sort of has a point but in my view, we need massive numbers for a much simpler reason.

We need enough voters to totally overwhelm the cheating elites. Let’s face it, the elites, by cook or by crook, tallied up 81 million votes for Biden. Argue all you want about whether they were legit or not, Team Biden remains in the White House. IF we are going to rout him out we need to roust the whole team. How can we do this?

Turn out in massive numbers. Really, REALLY form that “Red Tide”, or rather a Red Tsunami to put Donald J. Trump in the White House again. WE the People NEED to make a statement and the time to make our voices heard is NOW. We cannot afford to dick around anymore – but simply electing Trump won’t cut it. We need more. We need to establish our presence – to make it perfectly clear we will no longer be ignored. How can we do this?

By taking our participation one and then several steps forward. Trump needs to be elected but we must ALSO give him a SUPERMAJORITY in Congress – in both the House and the Senate – or at least as much of a majority as we can. But that’s not all.

We NEED to make it clear WE SUPPORT TRUMP and thus OUR REPRESENTATIVES MUST SUPPORT TRUMP. We cannot allow a repeat of what happened in 2020. We must weed out the “never Trumpers” and the rest of the RINO bastards. They must go.

Thus we can begin to wipe the slate clean, roll up our sleeves, and clean house. If I had my way, our goal would be to aggressively pursue a limited government – to drastically reduce government programs with an eye to eliminate  the bulk of these worthless efforts.

We need to systematically dismantle the federal gun control farce. I’d start with the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act 1968.

We need to dump the Federal Reserve.

We need to repeal the 16th and 17th amendments – (Federal Income Tax & Senators elected by popular vote) This will dismantle the IRS and restore States’ Rights and their power in the Senate.

If I had my way, ALL taxes would be subject to voter approval before one cent is collected. No more should we hand representatives blank checks. They would need to better account for every dime they spend and then explain in detail exactly why they think they need more money.

It starts now. If you are not registered to vote. Register now. As you are reading this you can likely register online or at least find out where you can register in person. While you are at it, find out how to obtain voter registration forms. Carry some with you at all times so you those you talk to have no excuse.

It matters not one whit whether you agree with anything I have to say. If you are a citizen YOUR voice counts exactly as much as mine does. Make it heard. Let the best citizen be victorious.

WE the People ARE the government. It is time we started acting like it.

Politics is Dead – Hooray! (Part 2)

In part one of “Politics is Dead”, I laid out the reasons for my contention. Today, I explore exactly why this is not only a major tactical error by the globalists but a cause for celebration among We the People.

The tactical error. It’s more of a blunder and an obvious one at that. Once you’ll see it, you’ll marvel at how idiotic (or most likely, arrogant) the globalists are just before you kick yourselffor not seeing it before. What’s the blunder? The globalists are killing (or have killed) the golden goose that laid their eggs – politics!

The founding fathers understood the danger. They correctly predicted the outcome of party politics, now evidenced in our massive government bodies ruled by usurpers. Here I’ll state plainly: these usurpers, the globalists who think themselves the “elite”, destined to rule over us lessors, got where they are today by the very two-party system they are ready to discard. In their arrogance, they’ve fallen for the fallacy that they do not need most of the people who populate the world nor the political parties from whence they derive their usurped power.

My response? Wonderful! If our two-party system was ever formally buried, I would dance on the grave! The death of this bastion of illegitimate power and authority frees We the People to formulate and install the principles of our Constitutional Republic as was originally intended! Yippee! That said, we are faced with a caveat. The globalists, of course, expect to replace our Constitutional Republic with a central, one-world government. What is their plan, exactly? Bluntly put – not being a globalist, I don’t claim to have any “inside information”. I’m not convinced the globalists themselves know. In fact if you ascribe to the ideas of men like Joel Skousen, you may not be shocked at the idea that the globalists don’t really have any “master plan”. Rather they are broken up into different factions each with a general idea of how to rise to become the world power. Personally, I think Joel’s view is the most plausible of any I’ve seen. Watching said “elites” work earnestly toward the destruction of our political system adds credence to this. How are they destroying our political system? You know the answer.

The globalists on both sides of the aisle have essentially fused together into an ugly Siamese-twin sort of uniparty intent on forging ahead to reach their common goals. Granted their efforts have always been thinly veiled but in recent years the lines marking any differences between the two have blurred. Due to the laws of nature – any political party can only increase it’s power by increasing government. Thus it is unreasonable to expect any party to attempt to reduce government when in power. To do so is suicidal to the party itself. Trump threatened the natural order of politics. As an outsider, he upset the unspoken understanding between so-called rivals. Both sides rallied to rid themselves of what they considered an usurper, ironic as this is. Today, both sides pay lip service if they pay any mind at all to any musings of a limited government. Limitations are the last thing either side desires. As such they have shed the remains of any shackles imposed upon them by our Constitution. As far as they are concerned, The Constitution for the United States of America is of value only as long as it provides the banner hiding their true agenda.

How can this be a good thing? With all pretense aside they must now show their true colors. While they were never all that adept at hiding their aims, now one must be a total fool not to see what’s been in front of our eyes all along. The politicians serve their masters, the money men, first and themselves second. They do not serve the People unless said service somehow benefits their own. More and more, the citizens of this nation have opened their eyes to see this. Currently these truths are the source of anger, confusion, and strife. What can we do about it? They have all the power. They have control of all the crucial components. They have the weaponry. We can do nothing. Really? Not so!

Let’s start with the physical aspects – the army and armament of the bureaucrats. This is mostly true and accurate. The usurpers have dedicated the past few years arming nearly every agency under their control. Not surprisingly, the armaments supplied to their minions include high-end military grade weapons – weapons they’ve denied us citizens by unlawful legislation. Add to this our military capabilities and they have garnered an impressive force to be reckoned with. Right? Maybe. The problem is, many of their minions, the “boots on the ground” guys are also citizens. Many have never seen battle. Almost none have fired upon fellow citizens. Should push come to shove and the globalists turn their army loose, they are by no means guaranteed a win. The lessons Afghanistan should loom large in their minds. Such is a worst-case scenario, one I do not believe will ever happen. This scenario forgets one important fact – a fact, it seems, nobody seems to acknowledge or even see.

We are a Constitutional Republic. Why is this important? Our Constitution is THE law of our land. We’ve lost sight of this – almost entirely. Even those who still hold it dear fail to grasp what this really means. What does it really mean? WE the PEOPLE are the government. WE hold the power.The final say for anything, ANYTHING concerning the governing of our nation rests in OUR hands. This is the truth. The very idea that we should see this truth, unadulterated, for what it really means, strikes real fear in the hearts of the usurpers because they know, even if they would never admit it.

Already I can hear the naysayers standing up to shout “WE CAN’T VOTE OUR WAY OUT OF THIS MESS!” In a sense, they are absolutely correct. Anyone, ANYONE, who blithely thinks the next election or the one after that, or any number of elections alone will save us must live in some fantasy world. Or those who think electing Trump or a “new” Congress will turn our nation around is not only wrong, they are fools. It ain’t gonna happen! So what’s the deal about the Constitution crap? Isn’t it all just the same thing? Well, if we keep on going about with “business as usual”, it sure is. Fact is, we need to break the cycle. We need to shatter the political machines, grind them to dust, and scatter them to the four winds. This is how we take our country back.

Now just HOW do you suggest we do THAT? You may ask. First, take the time to understand what we are facing. The Tea Party very nearly succeeded in seizing control of the republican party. Before that the Moral Majority made massive waves. Both efforts failed. Why? Simply because the wolves slipped into the flock. The party bosses saw the writing on the wall. They charged in to “save us from ourselves”. No, you won’t see this story in ballads or in the Sunday Supplement. It won’t appear anywhere. Just look at what happened in each case. It is more obvious in the Tea Party phenomenon. The experts descended from above and taught the neophytes how to “do politics”. Then they were absorbed by the party.

The moral of this lesson is politics – particularly party politics is the leaven and our goal is to limit ourselves to unleavened bread. Now you may be asking how do we elect representatives without politics? Is this even possible? My answer is… YES!

In fact, today’s technology has armed us common citizens in ways our ancestors never dreamed of. Most importantly, we have the ability to connect and communicate like never before. We have the entire world of knowledge at our fingertips – literally! Knowledge is power and ours is virtually unlimited. This is our edge. The globalists’ only hope was to keep the wool over our eyes long enough to secure their bunkers. In short, we don’t need no stinking political parties. What can we do instead?

Think about it, just for a moment. Think about your own household. Would you hand over control of it to your in-laws? What if they lived next door? Wait! What? No? But they raised your spouse! They were instrumental in forming the person you love most in this world. Yet, you don’t believe they are better qualified to run your household? So why would you hand over carte blance to some total stranger who lives and works far away the authority to define the rules for you and your family to live by? Isn’t this what we’ve done? Well, maybe not. It’s not like we’ve allowed Congress to dictate whether we can use incandescent light bulbs or something. Oh, wait, we actually have. Are you getting me here? You wouldn’t let your in-laws, fine people, I’m sure, run your house but you let total strangers rule almost every aspect of your life. This was not how our forefather’s designed our limited government.

Our Constitution, the very basis for our nation, THE law of the land, first and foremost recognizes each one of us as a self-governing citizen. WE the People are the “elite”, so to speak. Our laws, our rules, begin and end with US. What our forefathers lacked was any sort of way to connect and educate. The citizens of our early nation were separated by time and distance. It took a lot of effort to come together to make decisions. And when they did, how did they accomplish this? They first met to discuss and decide issues locally. Then they chose representatives to join representatives on the next level and so on finally to the Continental Congress. Hello!

Today, we can do this and more. Before we get to the “top”, meaning our national representatives, consider the scope of their representation. For each state, two senators represent the entire population. Originally, the makeup of the Senate was designed to represent the interest of each state legislature, not the general population. This design was intended as a protection of state’s rights. Moving on to the House, each congressman represents about 500,000 citizens. Now can you imagine how overwhelming it would be if we all descended on our congress critter at once? Even simply answering to an active congressional district would require a full-time staff. Moving on to our state representation – the average state legislator represents nearly 90,000 citizens. In my county, even though it is among the least populated, still has nearly 12,000 citizens. What does all this mean?

It means the idea of “writing to your representative” would be folly if we all did this. Such as it is, it would be cumbersome and unwieldy. In short – unworkable. Sad as it may be, the number of truly active citizens is quite low at best. Most of us simply wish to delegate the business of the people and live their lives. That’s okay but each of us are still responsible to do our part and that means we, all of us, (or most of us or a good number of us) should pay some attention to what’s going on around us.

The good news is, we have technology to streamline all of this. We can attend “town meetings” remotely. We can demand and receive summaries of the activities of our government representatives. We can discuss and offer our input which can then be tallied and presented as “the will of the people”. Like any other system, one like this is not incorruptible but it would be far more accountable than what we have now.

Let politics die. Embrace these death knolls. Let them ring in a new era where WE the People actually rule as we were meant to do. Just as we rule our own homes, we can work together within our counties to establish “home rule”. We start right here at home. Once we establish our bulkhead in our respective counties, we can hold our state and federal representatives accountable. One of my own first proposals would be to repeal the 17th Amendment and revert the election of Senators by state legislators. This may seem like an odd thing to support but it would go a long way towards breaking the influence of political parties in the Senate, especially once our legislators are forced to answer to us citizens directly.

As a citizen of this great nation you DO have a voice. What say you?

Adam Schiffty and His Laughably Liberal Whining About SCOTUS

So this post was scheduled for August 5 and somehow never made it to “print”. Late but not forgotten….

So here’s the headline and the article on The Gateway Pundit:

Adam Schiff Renews Call for Democrats to Pack U.S. Supreme Court With Liberal Justices

I do hope you didn’t expect this idiot to have an original idea or something. Why bring it up at all? Bear with me, especially if you are as tired as I am hearing about “packing the Supreme Court”. Ask yourself… what is the real reason behind this ridiculous concept?

Chances are you know the answer already, but look below the surface. Of course it is blatantly obvious they don’t like recent SCOTUS decisions and they want to turn the tide to favor their agenda. We all know they’ve never had a problem when decisions went their way. We all know they are the sorest of sore losers. If ever a politician threw a temper tantrum to make a three-year-old watch in awe, it is a liberal when something, anything, doesn’t go according to their wishes. And when they can’t win… they cheat.

Again, this is all well-documented. They lie and cheat at every turn. How many examples do you need?They cheat on legal matters. You only need to look at the record to verify this. Heck, they even cheat when it comes to Supreme Court rulings. Note the number of times Nobama, as well as Biden, simply decided to ignore decisions against them. They cheat at elections. The 2020 Presidential election is only the last example. Fact is, I am convinced they only lost the 2016 election because they were caught with their pants down (figuratively, thank GOD!) and underestimated the will of the PEOPLE to move away from politics as usual. The list goes on, and on, and on. Now that Trump has shored up the Supreme Court of the United States with justices who actually have some respect for our Constitution, they are collectively (how else?) whining and throwing fits about how unfair the rule of law is. And, of course, they want to change it by… packing the court! But… this is only the dirt on the surface. What lies beneath?

Before I dig into that, let me first say, I am not a huge fan of the Supreme Court myself. This doesn’t mean I feel our third branch of government should be done away with. Not at all. It is necessary. We need the Supreme Court. It is not so much the court itself I have a problem with. My problem is with attitude – OUR attitude when it comes to Supreme Court decisions. I liken it to when the Catholics choose a new Pope. The faithful hover around with an eye to the chimney, waiting for the puff of smoke indicating the church leaders have come to a decision. Then breathe a sigh of relief when the smoke emerges, wiping hand and saying “well, that’s that, all is well.” As citizens we do the same thing except certain segments are always unhappy with the ruling. Well, DUH! The whole reason any court case gets traction at all is because there are two opposing sides. So what’s the deal?

The “deal”, as I see it, is SCOTUS often gets things wrong. Let’s take, for example, one of the more recent decisions causing so much angst – Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. In this case, and I entirely agree as I understand it, the Court ruled that the federal government had no business telling anyone whether they could have an abortion or not. Now I’m sure it goes deeper than this but that is the gist. They overturned Roe vs Wade, likely one of the worst SUPREME COURT DECISIONS ever handed down. Most of the time, I tend to disagree when a court rules in favor of expanding constitutional limits on government and the courts tend to expand governments purview far more often than putting on the skids. Of course the liberals and usurpers always want more government because it means more control for their side.

All of the above is easy to see. We’ve come to accept it as “that’s the way things are”. These days the liberals have a problem with “the way things are” much as I’ve had for most of my life. What’s the difference? Like I said, they tend to cheat. In this case as in “packing the court”. Isn’t there another way? I’m glad you asked. Of course there is.

Like I said before, our tendency as a nation is to simply accept any SCOTUS ruling as the final word and move on. The problem with this is, SCOTUS does NOT have the final word! WE the PEOPLE do! The Constitution is not theirs to manipulate any way they so desire – the Constitution is OURS. It is our law of the land. Sure, as citizens, the Constitution belongs to Supreme Court justices also – but, as CITIZENS they have no more right or say than we do. In other words, it is the right of us citizens of this nation to OVERTURN SCOTUS.

Now, I’ll tell you up front, the politicians know this. Often, the court will rule on a singular point rather than a principle and the politicians have been known to rework certain legislation so it falls in line with a ruling. What the politicians are terrified to admit is, WE are in charge when it comes to the law of the land.

Let’s take Dobbs vs Jackson for our example. Once you see this, it will all be crystal clear as to why the usurpers want to pack the court. Like I said, SCOTUS said, our Constitution does not provide for federal meddling concerning abortions. Now, if the majority of us citizens disagree with this, WE the PEOPLE are fully within our rights to change this. How? By modifying our Constitution via an amendment. I hear you shaking your heads (and my wife claims I am hard of hearing), but the process is not easy for good reason. The last thing we need is what the liberals like to call “a living document”. (Thus suggesting the only other choice is to declare our Constitution dead.) It would be a nightmare if our nation’s decisions were all made by popular vote. This is the very reason we are a constitutional republic and NOT a “democracy”.

For this very reason, the globalist usurpers would rather “pack the court” because they know, they KNOW, the citizens of this nation are not likely to hand over control of their reproductive organs to the feds. So they want to cheat. This is their way because the only way they can win is by deception. Consider their own protests concerning Dobbs vs Jackson. Why, if you listen to them and believe their crap, then you’d be convinced any woman, ANY WOMAN, will soon be forced into illegal back alley clinics where unwanted pregnancies are terminated with coat hangers. Get real. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Research indicates most Americans are quite reasonable when it comes to the abortion issue. Many of us don’t approve of this as a method of birth control but few are opposed to those with limited choices or special circumstances. Personally, I do not feel a limited government has any say at all in such matters until such life becomes viable independently of the mother. Even then I think it is wise to tread carefully. That said, I do strongly object to the idea that abortions should be financed with tax dollars. In other words, if you want an abortion, that’s one thing but do not expect me to foot the bill, directly or indirectly.

So there you have it. Adam Shiffty and friends don’t like limiting government so their solution is to Shifft the odds in their favor by packing the court. It’s no surprise. Far be it for him and his like to accept the decision or vow to work hard to win the hearts of the PEOPLE to make changes.

Now, before I leave you, consider yet another potential SCOTUS ruling that could nuke our government’s stranglehold on our nation. Loper Bright Enterprises vs. Raimondo. (Red State Article)

Once again, this review contests an earlier SCOTUS ruling – the infamous Chevron Doctrine.

The way Red State puts it, this ruling was key allowing federal agencies to run rogue by devising regulations not authorized by Congress. You know, like the ATF suddenly deciding what gun parts can be bought and sold without their express permission? Below is the link to keep you updated.

SCOTUS Blog Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo

Again, my own desire would be to have the National Firearms Act and the Gun Control Act of 1968 specifically overturned, along with the rest of the ridiculous anti-2A laws, and for SCOTUS to make perfectly clear how the words “shall not be infringed” should be understood (to my satisfaction, of course). I’m sure this is too much to hope for but, barring a solid stand by us citizens, I can only dream.

Politics Is Dead (Part 1 of 2)

American politics has always been dominated by two parties. Until I was about thirteen when I showed my Mom the “error of her ways”, she always sided with the democrats. She contended the republicans catered to the rich whereas democrats looked out for the poor. This was in 1971. Even though I despised Richard Nixon – I thought his economic policies were crap and I loathed the idea of opening relations with China – I still felt the republican party was far more inclined to rein in spending than the tax and spend democrat party. It took me a long time to realize how utterly wrong I was and even longer to comprehend the joke our two-party system is on us citizens.

Today, right before our eyes, the vaunted American two-party system is dead – or nearly so. The most surprising aspect of this is who is killing it. What remains to be seen is what will take it’s place. In this two-part series I’ll lay it all on the line as I see it. Who is killing the system and why. More to the point – what they are determined to replace it with. Finally, I’ll offer up an alternative – a real choice that is not only possible but actually within our grasp.

Folks, politics isn’t simply dead. We’ve gotten so used to the smell of the rotting corpse of American politics, we are blind and desensitized to the decay and corruption left behind. Meanwhile, the politicians, laughing at us all the way to the bank, live in wonderlands of their own design in our federal and state capitols. They live lives of honor and privilege while their henchmen, government employees whose salaries are paid for with our own sweat and blood, extract every loose nickel from our pockets while prying free much of the remaining change we are desperately holding on to. They’ve brought to life Robin Hood’s Sheriff of Nottingham in the guise of federal bureaucrats. Meanwhile, they dine in the finest restaurants, live in the grandest houses, take junkets to exotic locations, all courtesy of grunts like you and me. Nancy Pelosi, during her last stint as Speaker of the House of Representatives, insisted her taxpayer provided plane be upgraded to a 747 so she could be ferried back to her San Francisco home district without stopping in flyover country to refuel. Oh, yeah, and, this daughter of a Baltimore politician, is somehow worth tens of millions of dollars. Go figure. And for the record, she’s never been charged with any wrongdoing, irrespective of the allegations of insider trading in the stock market, among others.

Let’s not forget Mitch McConnell who is also a multi-millionaire. Yet another politician with deep, profitable ties with China. Nor Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Obamas, or any of the rest of them. These days much is alleged about the Bidens and I absolutely believe a fair and thorough investigation would result in charges and jail time for all of the above. Do any of them look worried? The closest I’ve heard is when Hillary is said to have stated that if Trump won, “they” would all end up in jail. I don’t know whom the “they” she supposedly spoke of was exactly but I’ve no doubt the potential list is mind-boggling.

So how can I say “politics is dead” when everything appears to embrace the phrase “business as usual”? Remember that rotting corpse I spoke of? The game changed long ago. The more you look back with open eyes the more you will realize our “two-party system” is nothing but an illusion of smoke and mirrors. These days the reality is obvious if you care to see it. The gloves have come off and even the “politicians” are tired of the ruse. While they still wear the same “work clothes” every day, they no longer hide their true agenda. At least this is true of many democrats. The republicans continue to claw at the falsehood they are fighting for us because they have nothing else to offer. True, there are some politicians on both sides intent on shoring up the facade but more and more have “come out” for what they really want. Consider what the democrats advocate:

Green policies

Universal income

Universal health care

Cash Bail Reform

Disarming citizens

Open borders

All of these ideas are linked by a common thread. Each one moves us closer to shifting to a one-world government. Really? How can that be? Let’s look at these one by one with open eyes.

Green policies. Bad enough is the idea of forcing electric cars, stoves, and heating upon us all. To “reduce our carbon footprint”, proposals are now on the table to reduce farm production, power generation from all but solar and wind, and even reduce the world’s population. You heard right, they want to kill us off. You don’t really think any of those folks advocating “population reduction” are volunteering to go first… do you? Some have stated a desired reduction as much as 80%. You don’t get those numbers by attrition. Why? A smaller population is easier to control, silly. How much sense does it make to control such a reduced population via multiple governments? The globalists see themselves as an elite class destined to rule over their lessors and face it, the very term “globalists” is indicative of central control from a single entity. In other words, a one-world government. This “green movement” is a lightly veiled effort to cause economic hardship, even famine, among our citizens. Look back on the first Great Depression and what FDR was able to accomplish for the globalist agenda then.

Universal income is another devious plan to herd the poorest and least productive citizens into financial prisons where they can be controlled with ease. As a recent enrollee into Social Security, I already see the potential hook coming… get vaccinated or lose your benefits. I’ve got news for the bastards. Universal income has yet another hidden feature shared by all “government gimmies”, the more of our money the globalists spend the more they can stress our resources until they break.

This is also one of the main goals behind universal health care. Not only can they control a massive segment of our economy they can also begin systematic reduction of the population by picking and choosing who gets what health care. After all… we can only afford so much – right? This joke on us displays raw evidence whenever a globalist becomes ill. No expense is ever spared to save one of their own – as long as they are useful and in good standing.

On to the elimination of cash bail. Surely this is obvious. The goal is to keep criminals on the streets as much as possible. Granted our “criminal justice system” leaves much to be desired but installing revolving doors at police stations is not the solution. As crime rises, citizens demand protection in the form of, you guessed it, more government and more regulations. What, exactly, is the the most touted solution to violent crime?

Disarming citizens! Hello. Of course they can never call it that. Instead they want to “reduce gun violence” (because knife, and fist, and baseball bat violence are much more desirable ways to suffer and die) and “get guns off the street”. As with every other dialectic, they ignore the real issues while promoting so-called “solutions” that only exacerbate the problems. With every mass shooting, I’ve begun to call for bigger “No Guns Allowed” signs. That should stop ’em.

Then there’s the open borders agenda. They can’t hide this one. Nothing says “One World” better than the eradication of a national borders. This agenda item alone should speak volumes. While the term “open borders” speaks for itself, don’t forget ancillary issues such as “amnesty for so-called immigrants” (illegal aliens), “pathways for citizenship”, along with all the other means of either openly ignoring immigration and naturalization laws or simply ignoring the influx of illegal people and goods flooding our nation. It all adds to the strain of our resources as well as directly contributing to the death and destruction of our citizens and our nation.

The globalists have come out of the closet. They openly and proudly proclaim not only their hate of America but their intent to destroy our nation. They have routed our representatives and elected officials on every level, replacing them with their own sycophants. They’ve seized control of our electoral processes while laying siege to our legal system. Those they failed to control they are hobbling, if not eliminating via lawfare. They own the media. They own law enforcement. They own the courts. There are exceptions. Some voices still cry. Some law enforcement agencies resist. Some judges, including a majority in SCOTUS, still abide by our constitution to some extent. That said, the gloves are off. Politics is dead. The true battle is globalism vs our nation – our constitutional republic. It is the last bastion we citizens need to defend. Is it hopeless? Not at all. But as the globalists have shifted their attacks, we must shift our defenses. They’ve made a strategic error. Now if only we can capitalize on their blunder. To be continued…

Mitch McConnell on His Way Out?

This from The Gateway Pundit:

RUMBLINGS: Senate Republicans Preparing for Mitch McConnell to Retire  Following Fall at Former Trump Hotel

It gets deeper “multiple sources confirm that Senators John Barrasso of Wyoming, John Cornyn of Texas and John Thune of South Dakota are actively reaching out to fellow Republican senators in efforts to prepare for an anticipated leadership vote

Now consider these sterling choices presented to take McConnell’s place. What do they all have in common? They are all card-carrying RINOs. This is not to say who might actually replaced Beloved Leader should we be forced to take the reins of the Senate Minority from his cold dead hands, but each stands a far better chance of seizing that brass ring than any of those Senators who more closely serve the People, i.e. constutionalists.

This alone should be evidence enough for the need to abolish political parties from our ranks. We don’t need no stinking parties. We need solid citizens tapped to serve for a limited time before returning to private life. The day of the professoinal politican should be over. Of course this is unlikely to happen. However there is yet another scenario equally as farfetched: that scenario where all will continue as it always has.

In the first place, the status quo is not at all what it was 20 years ago. In fact it has changed from year to year. Things keep getting worse. The debt ceiling gets higher, the more money we spend. Liberty shrinks with every passing Congress. The globalists gain ground every day. The only real viable outcome on the road we’ve taken is the complete crumbling of our nation. Indeed it is happening before our eyes.

Would a Rand Paul or a Ted Cruz at the helm save us? No, but it would be a start. Unless we change course to a godly heading, there is no hope in sight.

May our Heavenly Father Bless you and keep you in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

SQUIRREL! Trump Indictment vs. Shaman’s Release

Two news stories dated March 30, 2023 – one is ALL OVER THE NEWS and the other? Meh.

First up – The Donald

“Former President Donald Trump faces more than 30 counts related to business fraud in an indictment from a Manhattan grand jury, according to two sources familiar with the case.” CNN reported.

Then there’s this:

“QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley Released from Prison to Halfway House

This second article was buried on the second page of The Gateway Pundit. I only learned about this because my wife found it last night on Yahoo! News of all places.  Seriously?

Now one thing I like about The Gateway Pundit is they’ve run hard with coverage on the J6 Political prisoners. They are relentless. I commend them for this.

Granted we’ve known about Chansley’s promised early release for a couple days now, as we have about Trump potentially being indicted. Strange both travesties of justice should come to a head on the same day. The ONE news program I watched yesterday  on Real America’s Voice, never mentioned Chansley, not once. They were all about Trump.

Think about it. The J6video is released. Tucker Carlson broadcasts video clearly and totally vindicating Chansley. A few days later Shazaam! Whatdoyaknow? He is going to be released. It kinda reminds me of what happened to the Apostle Paul in Philippi.

Acts 16:35  But when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, “Let those men go.”
36  The jailer reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go; now therefore come out, and go in peace.”
37  But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us publicly, without a trial, men who are Romans, and have cast us into prison! Do they now release us secretly? No, most assuredly, but let them come themselves and bring us out!” (WEB)

The authorities had no qualms about publicly beating Paul and Silas before tossing them in prison. Then they decided to quietly release them.

I do hope this is not the end of Jason Chansley’s story. His maltreatment needs to be addressed, as does that of all the other J6 Political Prisoners. Treating this story as such, essentially sweeping it under the rug, is not acceptable.

As far as the proceedings concerning Trump is concerned, it is yet another sideshow in the American Main Event Circus come front and center. Everything about this is wrong. Worse, they are using the splash caused by this as a distraction from other dirty deeds.

Yet another page ripped from the globalists’ playbook.

Revisiting Tucker Carlson and…

Okay, so Tucker does a show with an old colleague Clayton Morris. Here is the headline from The Gateway Pundit:

“Ray Epps CLEARLY Was Working for Somebody…The Core Claims About Jan 6 Were a Lie” – Tucker Carlson Discusses the Truth About the Jan 6 Files with Clayton Morris at Redacted (VIDEO)

These are the same folks where I got the story about Tucker pulling punches on his show on Fox. What gives? I don’t know. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Ray Epps offered as a sacrificial lamb IF they could find a way to do so without pulling back the curtain on themselves. Who are “they”. They are whoever hired Ray Epps to do what he did on January 6. It is not apparent he was working for somebody. Ultimately I see the hand of the globalists in this but I suspect there are far too many layers between them and those boots on the ground to implicate them.

Much closer to the inner circle is none other than Joe Bobo. It looks like the dogs of justice are nipping at his heels.

BOOM! Oversight Chair James Comer: “IT’S AS BAD AS WE THOUGHT – We Have In Hand Documents That Show Biden Family Was Getting Money from Chinese Communist Party”

Frankly I’m surprised at that statement. I expected it to be far worse than anyone could think and I, for one, am having some very dark thoughts about the pResident.

There’s the SVB fiasco. All weekend it’s been touted as an isolated nothing burger kind of California happening baby. Today’s headlines may be a warning of bigger things to come.

Biden to Speak on Banking Crisis Early Monday Morning at 8 A.M. EDT

I’m thinking it’s got to be serious if Bobo is getting up this early on a Monday morning.  And if that’s not bad enough…

Trump Curse? Signature Bank Fails Two Years After Bank Closed President Trump’s Accounts Over January 6 Riot

Wait a minute, this headline doesn’t look all that ominous. Isn’t the big news about Trump? I don’t think so. It looks more like a second domino to me. Maybe these two bank failures are totally unrelated. Maybe it’s just some sort of coincidence. Yeah. Right.

This could be 2008 2.0 or worse. I’m guessing worse because we don’t have billions to throw at the banking system again. Fact is, we didn’t have it in 2008 either. It seems to me what we are really seeing is scam after scam piling up to drain as much cash from the American people before it all comes crashing down. If I was a betting man, I’d be putting my money on the nose of the globalists who are packing up and heading for their favorite sanctuaries.

Now I’m not posting all this to monger fear. It’s all just speculation based on headlines and articles from a single source. Think of it as more of a heads up. Look around you. Signs of our nation crumbling are all around us. Can it be saved? I don’t know. What I do know is whether or not our nation is restored, WE need to turn to God. And no I’m not saying “save yourself, it’s every man for himself.” Not at all. Once you get right with God, you will be free and indeed expected to help others see the light.

Remember taking the beam out of your own eye before taking the speck out of your brothers?

Luke 6:42  Or how can you tell your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck of chaff that is in your eye,’ when you yourself don’t see the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck of chaff that is in your brother’s eye.

Get right with God first, then hold out a hand for others.

The New and Improved Trump Follies – Indicting a Former President

UPDATE: As of this morning (Monday, March 20, 2023) it appears the planned arrest of former President Trump has at least been delayed.
Per The Gateway Pundit: BREAKING: IS THIS ALL A SCAM? Now It Looks Like President Trump Will Not Be Arrested Tuesday

The headlines are filled with the anticipation of the arrest of Donald J. Trump. Some eagerly look forward to see him lead down the walk of shame in handcuffs. Some are calling for him to be held without bail… presumably indefinitely. You know… like those J6 political prisoners who have to see their day in court. Do note my commentary here is presented as a citizen. While will absolutely comment on my perception of the legal issues involved, it should be noted I do not claim to be a lawyer nor admitted to any bar association and are not in any way legal advice. My comments offered from a layman’s perspective.

For the record, I do not know specifically what former President Trump is expected to be charged with in this debacle. I understand the charge or charges are classified as a misdemeanor. Thus is far less serious than a felony. Don’t get me wrong, misdemeanors are still crimes – or at least ostensibly so. Why am I hedging on this?

For one thing, just the title of this book by real-life lawer Henry A. Silvergate should give pause for thought. Three Felonies A Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent. Do note I have not read this book nor will I profit should you buy it. The link is supplied simply for informational purposes. The premise of this book is any average citizen commits as many as three federal felonies every day simply by living one’s life. I’m citing this as an example of how rampant our legal system has become. Don’t be fooled. While this is in the federal level, do not think for a minute the states are lacking in legislative insanity, especially New York. As I grew up in that state, I can speak from experience.

For example: Citizens may not greet each other by “putting one’s thumb to the nose and wiggling the fingers”. Warning! The preceding link is to a pdf document entitled Strange State Laws. It was compiled by Forest Grove Elementary students in Pacific Grove CA. I found it both hilarious and somewhat scary. The things people we put in authority will do with their power. Yikes!

The bottom line here is, it is conceivable for Donald Trump, or any citizen to be charged with any number of violations. Another example from the document above is, if he jaywalked in New York, he couldn’t be charged with a crime unless he jaywalked diagonally. Would this be a simple appearance ticket or would he be held without bail.

Keep in mind, we are talking about a city that releases alleged armed robbers.

Fresh proof that New York’s “no bail” reforms aren’t about justice at all: A serial bank robber was released without bail on attempted robbery charges — only to go right back out and hit up two more banks.

This is from the same Manhattan District Attorney’s office that plans on arresting the former President of the United States. Let that sink in.

While I have yet to find documentation of the actual proposed charge, I did find this: It is believed that the Manhattan DA’s office is looking into charging the 45th president with falsifying business records to hide his reimbursement of Cohen for the Daniels payment. So, if I get this right, the charge is “falsifying business records”. In other words, he allegedly listed the payment but called it something other than “reimbursement for hush payments”. Huh. My favorite tax consultant tells me that a) it is highly unlikely Donald J. Trump personally “falsified” anything, and b) labeling any business expense one thing or another for tax purposes isn’t a big deal as long as the expense itself is legitimate. Drawing on my own accounting education, I seem to remember my instructor saying accounting wasn’t as much math as it is …. Then something entirely different comes to mind. Yes, I am a bit warped but what this says to me is “selective enforcement of the law”.

First of all, I’m not so sure that mislabeling a business expense is akin to breaking the law. Even if it is, does this mean the Manhattan DA intends to scrutinize the records of every business within his jurisdiction put a stop to this white collar crime wave entirely? I doubt it, AND, if he only goes after Donald J. Trump then he is selectively enforcing the law and that is a no no, as deemed by the Supreme Court of the United States.

The U.S. Supreme Court has held that selective prosecution occurs where the law enforcement officials or prosecutors have in pursuing a criminal case “directed so exclusively against a particular class of persons … with a mind so unequal and oppressive” that equal protection of the law has been negated by their efforts. (United States v. Armstrong, 517 U.S. 456, 116 S. Ct. 1480, 134 L. Ed. 2d 687 [1996], quoting Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356, 6 S. Ct. 1064, 30 L. Ed. 220 [1886])

Ouch. Now the question is, if I, a poorly educated citizen can figure this out, why can a high powered district attorney in one of our nation’s premier cities understand it? All I have is a computer and an internet connection, whereas Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, has that plus a degree in jurisprudence, a half billion-dollar budget, and an untold number of staff members – all with advanced degrees, computers, and internet connections – to dedicate to this issue. Could it be that at least one of these individuals may have come across this same principle in their studies and/or work experience and chooses to ignore it for political gain? NAH! Why, that would be outrageous. It would be like all of the anti-Trumpers calling for the Donald’s head while trying the hide the fact that they themselves are guilty of the same thing or something even worse. Speaking of worse crimes…

How come between Hunter Biden’s laptop and Anthony Weiner’s Laptop alone we’ve never heard a hint of an investigation even after many well-founded allegations of child pornography and worse on both? Not to mention classified documents. Or why does no one seem to be investigating those on Jeffery Epstein’s list of passengers on the so-called “Lolita Express”? Hear tell at least one of the young girls, now women, has come forward with potential testimony. Seems like lots of folks are hell bent on “getting” Donald Trump no matter what while gladly looking the other way from substantial evidence pointing to real crimes by others.

Sunday night Mark Levin had one of Trump’s attorneys one – the man defending Trump from these very allegations. One of the points he made was this prosecutor intended to use some new legal ideas in order to charge the former President. He further explained this was because this same avenue of prosecution was previously reviewed by the U.S. Attorney for the New York area. They declined to pursue legal action. In essence this Manhattan DA is apparently trying to invent a crime that does not exist. Huh. Seems very similar to what I just said – IF Trump had personally reimbursed repayment of Cohen’s outlays and personally called it “legal costs” rather than “hush money” or whatever, such would not be illegal. Call me on this if you can but I don’t think anyone has ever been arrested and convicted for paying someone to keep silent. If such a thing is accomplished withing the legal system it is called a “non-disclosure agreement”.

It’s said “the devil is in the details”. This story could not be more true to the phrase and that is what it is important to keep watch and speak out. This is not about Donald J. Trump. It never was. Nor were any of the Trump witch hunts performed by previous Congressional committees, the media, and other anti-Trump forces. While they all carried the “NO-TRUMP” banner, all of these acts were attacks on our nation, us citizens, and, ultimately, God Himself.

This latest one is a blatant attempt to sidestep our Constitution, in particular, where it states we all have equal protection under the law. Not to mention where our laws are to be enacted by representatives in legislative bodies and signed into law by the head of the administrative body instead of pulled out of thin air by some rogue law enforcement employee. Our nation is not a “make up the laws as we go along” country, but that is exactly what Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg seems to be doing by advancing new “legal theories”. One of these seems to be a variation on “he has to be guilty of something”. This is a direct contradiction of the preeminent basis for law in our nation: “Innocent until proven guilty”.

While this edict is ingrained in our national fabric, the threads of this principle runs much further.

As the preeminent English jurist William Blackstone wrote,”[B]etter that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer.”74 This principle can also be found in religious texts and in the writings of the American Founders.75 Benjamin Franklin went further arguing “it is better a hundred guilty persons should escape than one innocent person should suffer.”76

This is known as Blackstone’s ratio but he was not alone in his thoughts, nor likely even the first to offer this. The echo of this principle rings in our ears today. None of this is to say Donald J. Trump is guilty of anything but rather, many have assumed his guilt time and time again only to come up empty trying to prove it. As his lawyer said, in essence, on Life, Liberty, and Levin last night, his detractors are determined to go to any lengths to find the man guilty of something.

Protests are planned for Tuesday. Anyone who has read this blog for any length of time knows I disdain protests. As self-governing citizens of our Constitutional Republic, protests are beneath us in most circumstances. Better to go above the heads of the usurpers and keep our nation in prayer.
