Joe Biden – The New American Pope

By now if you haven’t seen the hoopla surrounding the latest smoke signals from the White House, go back to sleep. There’s no hope for you anyway. For the rest of us, well, I’m not sure if we should laugh, cry or simply say good-bye to our nation. I’m referring to the announcements concerning “misinformation” and the regime’s stated efforts to put things right, I suppose.

Jen Psaki - "Miss Information"In effect Jen Psaki says they are working with social media, specifically Facebook, but she may have singled out others, to put a stop to Covid-19 “misinformation”. Apparently they are also working with SMS (text messaging) providers to cull wrongthink from texts we send each other. Of course, I imagine the first thought most of us have is “What about our 1st Amendment?”, followed by “What is stopping them from putting the skids on other forms of wrongthink?”, and then, “Who do they think they are?”. It’s this last supposed thought I’ll address here, hence the title.

Think about it. Fair warning, I am not, nor have I ever been Catholic, so anything I state about Catholicism is stuff I’ve picked up over the years. Take it with a grain of salt. That said, I understand the Pope is held as infallible and that’s where I’m coming from. It stands, then, to reason that Joe Biden, along with his coronation as p-Resident is now essentially declaring himself our New American Pope.

His holiness has to be infallible, otherwise how can he, unilaterally, declare what is TRUTH and what is falsehood? Now, I’ve only ever understood that the Catholic Pope is the only man on earth deemed to speak pure unmistakable words. Even certain kings, who believe themselves God have not overtly done such. (Keep in mind, I have not studied the topic in depth so I may, well be mistaken here but you get the point.) Now that I think about it, is it possible Ol’ Joe expects he should rise to the prominence of a Pharaoh, Chinese, Japanese or Roman emperor? These all considered themselves gods.

Pope or emperor, it makes no difference to me. The end result is the same. We can now see the beginnings of an entity who expects the world to see himself as bigger than life itself. Far too big to be constrained by a mere constitution. Why should he be bound by the laws of men? Why does he need a congress? Is he (should I now be rendering the pronoun He or HE?) not above all of this? Speaking of pronouns, I find it a bit difficult to get a grip on them. As we all know, we peasants are rarely blessed with direct communication from the great one himself. Such trifles are relegated to others, such as his press secretary. However, as I understand it, all of these decrees emanate from the source. In light of this it may be time to speak of our p-Resident in the plural Victorian. This we can use they instead of “him” or “he” and Mr. p-Resident can refer to themselves as “we” and “us”. I’m pretty sure even the Catholic Pope refrains from this.

So there you have it. We need no longer concern ourselves with what or how to think. We have The One who will tells us all TRUTH and will benevolently correct us when we run afoul. All of this courtesy of Joe Biden, our New American Pope… or Pharaoh… or Emperor. My apologies for not being more specific. I’m sure they will soon be forthcoming with the proper acceptable forms of address along with guidance concerning the correct title we subjects are expected to use.

Update: on further reflection, I considered how this post meshes with my current views. In other words how does this fit in, seeing as how I advocate turning to God  Almighty to ask Him to restore our nation?

As noted above, historically, certain rulers have deified themselves. This is basically what is happening here. The controllers are elevating Joe Biden to a godlike status. The end result is the destruction of our nation is accelerating more and more each and every day. Remember that snowball?

I am not going to cite example after example. The controllers are attacking our republic on every level. How much longer to we have? I cannot say. How long before I am prohibited from saying?

Go to God now. Ask Him what He would have you do. Keep asking until you have an answer. Prayer is our first defense right now.

Mark Levin – American Marxism – Is He Wrong?

Note: This is most of the text from an email I sent to a fellow Christian I am corresponding with. I tried to edit out any irrelevant parts, but if something doesn’t seem to “fit”, that may be why.

Last night (Sunday)  I caught part of Mark Levin’s show where he is currently promoting his book “American Marxism”. We purchased the book and I have just started it, however after absorbing a significant amount of the main ideas from his broadcasts, I can tell you right now, Levin is missing the mark. (no pun intended) Don’t get me wrong, I believe he is one of the better commentators and analysts of our time. That said, he is not seeing things from the spiritual aspect. Now maybe I am the one who is blind. But I feel this is an important take on what is happening around us. Here goes:

Again, I try to see the events of today in relation to the end times prophecy. Why? Because it is the one thing I am certain of. There will be a one-world government, along with all we’ve seen predicted.

Now, our nation is not found anywhere in scripture. Why? I don’t know. What I do know is there are a lot of things not included so, I do not concern myself with this. However everything plays a role, including our nation, so while we are not “included” we are not excluded either. What I am convinced of is there can be NO one-world government as long as the USA exists in our current form. Prophecy or not, this is easy to see.

With this in mind, everything happening today begins to make much more sense.

Levin says the reason the democrats (actually the globalists, they exist in all parties and outside of political parties) are pushing illegal immigration is to import more democrat votes into the nation. I believe he is at least partially mistaken. This is why:

1) When the globalists succeed in eliminating the electoral college, they will have turned our constitutional republic into a functional democracy. The mob will rule. Note they have already succeeded in corrupting the republic in respect of Senators, when they changed the constitution to elect them by popular vote in 1912. Yes. This is how long the globalists have planned the demise of our nation.

2) While flooding certain states and districts may be desirable to secure the remaining Senate and House seats to make their coup complete, I see this as secondary as they already effectively have control for the most part. Yes, they do need to boost votes in a handful of states but the current flood of new votes only accelerates the process

3) Once the ultimate goal of destroying our nation is understood, the ulterior motive of the globalists is clear. The massive importation threatens to strain local, state and federal budgets to the breaking point. Cloward-Piven is credited for outlining this.

4) The southern border of our nation is essentially erased. No border, no nation.

Now let’s turn to the other issues we see unfolding before our eyes.

Spending. Again, look to Cloward-Piven to understand the real goal is to drive inflation through the roof while “all of a sudden” coming to realize that “Gee, we’ve got to pay for this somehow.”. Look for massive tax increases to further destroy the middle class.

Bluntly put, the airwaves are fraught with examples of ways the globalists are trying to bring this nation down, from Merrick Garland inviting the UN to examine our human rights practices to CRT to the piece by piece dismantling of our God-given rights.

At this point I am only trying to unveil these things for what they really are. We need to have our eyes open. It may well be too late. This does not matter. It is not for us to determine. God has already put the timeline in place. HE has already determined not only the when but the what. IF our Heavenly Father chooses to restore our nation, it will only be temporary. Keep in mind we are talking about an eternal being who is already 2000 years late by some men’s reckoning. What if He chooses to allow our nation to fall? Our responsibility is the same, though our duties may change. Let me clarify.

As of today, I see our duty to our nation is to lay claim to our right to self-govern and to hold those who have usurped power and authority accountable. This duty remains unless and until the constitution is declared invalid and the transformation to some other form of government is complete. Should this happen then our nation is lost and our duty as citizens dissolved. Whether we decide to bow to the new rulers or not would then be an individual choice.

Our responsibility is today and always to do the Will of our Heavenly Father. Today, part of this responsibility is to do our duty as citizens as described above. We are granted freedom of speech and freedom of religion for a reason. We are to speak God’s Word. We are to LIVE God’s word. This responsibility transcends any and all governments. Whether this nation or whatever replaces it, we are to remain faithful to God Almighty and our Lord and Savior Jesus the Messiah. Our nation, our constitutional republic WILL be replaced, it is only a matter of timing. This was true from before the foundations of the earth.

As far as any fix is concerned, man cannot fix it. Only God can do this and He will. We just do not know how or when. The fix may indeed be God’s ultimate solution as prophesied. If there is to be something in the interim, this also is His prerogative, not ours. All we can do as Christians is individually seek out and do His will as best we can. If we rise up and hold forth the truth of God’s Word, then we can see great things happen. We cannot and should not do this with a view of “changing the world”. We only need to focus on doing what we are able to do. By doing this, God can enable us to do far more than we believe possible. Consider the time when Peter walked on water. He took the step. God kept him on the water rather than allow him to sink.

This is how I see things this morning. The clarity I had last night impresses upon me the urgency of any efforts we take. I am convinced time is short. The coming globalist foray is racing towards us as a snowball from a high mountain. It is sure to bring devastation.

ALL we can do is go to God immediately. For a long time now, I’ve moved beyond asking God for anything specific other than to make clear His Will for my life and a clear path to take. Strangely enough my scripture reading today in the OT was Psalm 25. I urge you to begin reading the Psalms, beginning with the first with a mind to how the words relate to things happening today. WE cannot do anything other than shine a light on the truth. We must do this regardless of what is happening in the world.

Go to God. He will show you what you need to know and do if you ask. Trust in this.

Door to Door Vax Teams Making the Rounds

Well that didn’t take long.  A few days ago I posted commentary on this regime’s threat to go door to door to promote covid “vaccinations “.

The Goons are Loose: Biden’s Jab Patrol Spotted Going Door to Door; Now Offering Shots on the Spot (Video)

Well that is their stated intent. Pardon me if I look upon their professed good intentions with a wary eye. Like Ronald Reagan said,  “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help. ”

Sorry dudes, I refuse to be terrified.

One comment I read included an excellent idea I’m adding to my preparations (such as they are). I’m adding the phone number of my local Sheriff to my phone directory for quick access. What preparations you may ask. Simply this, I am requesting all family members follow suit should a government shadow cross our door.

Do not answer any questions.

Do not offer any information.

Request they leave the property immediately.

Call the Sheriff for assistance if necessary.

That’s it.  I’m not looking for nor do I desire any drama here. Just go away.

 

Answering The Constitutional Naysayers

Note: this is my reply to commenters on another blog who essentially dismissed our constitution and therefore our nation.

I, for one, am tired of this defeatism seemingly pervading even the conservatives posting online. Some seem to expect arm conflict. Some appear to lust for it. Yes, our constitution has been abused, trampled, even shredded. Yes we’ve seen our rights wiped out with the stroke of a pen time and time again. Wiped out… or so they think. I contend our rights are inalienable. By definition this means something that “can’t be transferred to someone else, taken away, or denied.” In practical terms, I have a right to breathe.  One can indeed deny said right and even cut off my oxygen supply and thus deprive me of my life.  Usurping my right to breath and cutting off my oxygen does not wipe out my right. In other words, my right still exists. In same sense, even a SCOTUS opinion denying one of my inalienable rights does not wipe it out.  Thus even our vaunted Supreme Court must bow to God Almighty who gave us these rights.

Now, for those of you who pooh pooh our constitution, I have a question. Have you surrendered then? In other words, will you simply forfeit your God given rights as enumerated in the founding document of this nation and therefore are you ready to bow to your betters who ARE your betters by their own mere proclamation?

What then? What do you propose? War or armed conflict by some other name? Or maybe you plan to vote your way out of this. Oh. Yeah. Voting is something done in some recognized form of government.

Allow me to suggest that unless and until a formal declaration of the abandonment of our constitution is made and a new form of government is officially installed, by whatever method, our Constitution is still the law of the land.

As such we are still self-governing citizens. The mess our nation is now in is NOT entirely the fault of those who usurped power and authority by fraud or device – fraud being feigning to “represent” a group of citizens while actually representing their handlers. It is NOT the fault of those “deep state” players installed in powers of so-called authority by the usurpers. Whose fault is it then?

If we can blame anyone we should first look inward to ourselves as citizens. WE have allowed this to happen by consistently giving to the nod, time and time again, to those who openly and brazenly abuse their fiduciary duties. Granted we have all been snowed, misled into believing lies such as “Our nation is a democracy”. Democracy, simply stated means mob rule. We are NOT ruled by a mob. Our founding document established a limited government granting limited authority by citizens who elect representatives to administer and preserve our republic. Few, if any, of us was taught this. However not being taught does not excuse us from our duty to learn and understand our responsibilities as citizens. I know I was not taught this. I did not pursue this knowledge until very late in life. I am as guilty as anyone of shirking my responsibilities as a citizen. Now that I’ve come to a better understanding myself, I feel duty-bound to help others understand these things.

Know this: those who have usurped power and authority fear us and rightly so. Otherwise they would have formally declared their absolute rule over us. Instead they inch towards such a declaration, gaining ground each day. Our power is NOT in our arms. Our power is in our voice – not the voice of one but the voice of the nation, comprised of free citizens in a constitutional republic. I am just one voice. Some may say “loudmouth”. So be it. No matter how loud I can be. If I can shout so every ear in the nation can hear me, I am only one voice. I am only one citizen. This is the difference between how our nation was designed and what it has become. The usurpers centralize their power. Their desire is to emanate authority from one place, our nation’s capitol. Our nation was designed to distribute power equally amongst all citizens. Thus I do not have any more power or authority than anyone. WE THE PEOPLE have power and even that power is limited by constitutional constraints. Once we realize our power and understand how to wield it, the usurpers have nothing.

For those of you who laugh and scorn our constitution, I say you are either defeated already or an active minion of the usurpers. For those who feel defeated, all is not lost. Not yet. For you minions… if your masters do indeed succeed, their victory will be a short and empty one. God Almighty will prevail.

False Hopes and Salvation

No one is coming to “save” us. Not Trump. Not DeSantis. No. One.

For me, this is not a call to arms but a call to God Almighty. He has already provided salvation from the wrath the come via His only begotten son, Jesus, the Messiah. Only God can restore our nation, but He will only do so if we citizens who claim Christ turn to our Heavenly Father, repent of our wickedness and ask for restoration. What other options do we have?

The much touted and yearned for “civil war”, should it come about, can only result in a devastated countryside with no clear winner. In fact, we all lose.

Or we can continue to bow to a political system owned and operated by those controllers who have enriched themselves by pilfering us citizens.

Does anyone else find it strange how those of us who call ourselves Christians look to men for carnal solutions? Consider the history of the Hebrews. When they turned from God to their various idols, they lost not just wars but everything. When they turned back to God, they were restored. Have we not patterned ourselves after them? We worship material things. We look to politics and government to meet our needs and/or care for others who have needs. Meanwhile we shirk our own duty to provide for those in need. Nor do we hold those who are supposed to represent us accountable. We have allowed them to define and dilute our God-given rights, in particular our right to self-govern via a constitutional republic. Our constitution limits what government is allowed to do and yet we citizens have all turned a blind eye to nearly every encroachment on those limitations. In doing so we’ve allowed this nation to be brought to the brink of total annihilation. The controllers are willing. Already they threaten destruction via missiles and bombs, including nuclear weaponry. Does this not, in itself, blatantly demonstrate their total lack of concern for our nation?

I am certain many will scoff at the idea of asking a Holy God to restore our nation. Let me ask you, do you believe an Almighty God unwilling or unable to restore our nation? Do you really believe our rights are God-given? If so, then how can mere men take them away? If God is for us, who can stand against us? Or do you simply not believe in God at all? I ask this not of unbelievers, but of those who say they believe in God and in particular my brethren in Christ.

Consider David. All of his nation feared the Philistines to the extent not one of their champions dared face Goliath. David was a mere shepherd boy. He was not a warrior. However he believed his God was bigger than Goliath, bigger than the entire Philistine army. His response? “How DARE they!” Indeed.

So I ask you. Do you believe? Do you believe our nation was established by Almighty God? Do you believe our rights, including our right to self-govern, are GOD given? Do you believe Almighty God is able to restore our nation and rebuke the enemies of God who have usurped power? Do you believe this same Almighty God is willing to do so? How might any of this come about unless we ask Him?

As for me, I know, I KNOW, God is willing. What I am uncertain of is whether anyone will join me in my petitions to Him.

Can Slo Mo Joe Biden Last Two Years?

Around the time Slo Mo Joe Biden assumed the office of the US Presidency, much speculation was bandied about concerning how long he would last. Many proclaimed Kamal Harris would be sworn in a few days or weeks following Biden’s assumption. That didn’t happen. However in recent days, some noted Harris, rather than traveling separately from ROTUS (Resident of the United States) as is customary for a VP, now travels with him. Many ask why? Good question.

The reasoning for two traveling separately is obvious. If something happens to one, the nation still has someone to act or react. The logic behind it is solid. Not so much for the current practice. This is what got me to thinking. If the powers that be really expected Slo Mo Joe’s residency to expire soon, the last thing even these idiots would want is to chance their chosen successor being somehow losing her place in line. Then again maybe they simply do not care who is number two, or number one for that matter as long as they maintain control. This makes a certain amount of sense to me. Now for the question prompting this essay.

Anyone paying attention is painfully aware the Joester is fading. He is an embarrassment. He always has been but things are getting progressively worse. So how long  will the controllers endure his tragic comedic act? Again, maybe they don’t care. They certainly do not care about this republic. That much is obvious. So what is their game plan?

First let’s revisit one bit of speculation. They don’t care. As long as they are in control all is well for them. This may be the most reasonable, if despicable, conclusion of all. However it occurred to me there could be another game plan based on the supposition the controllers prefer a Harris administration.

What if the controllers are vying for an extended Harris administration? Consider the 22nd Amendment to our Constitution:

No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once.

Here is a possible scenario, they keep Slo Mo Joe on virtual life support for two years. Once that milestone is passed Harris can step in for the remainder of the two years. Now she is in place to be ‘elected’ twice while remaining withing the parameters of our Constitution.

So there you have it, not one but two possible explanations about what is  happening in the controller’s camp. The second is not at all precluded by the first so they could both be accurate. Unfortunately, being correct carries no reward but rather indicates we could be in for a long two years suffering through the Joester’s continuing stumbles and mumbles.

Note the one scenario I did not offer was one where ROTUS not only completes his residency and either runs, (or is wheeled) for a second term or defers to his VP who then takes up the mantle for possibly two terms. My reasoning here is I very much doubt Slo Mo Joe can last two years, much less four. Every president has aged severely during their terms. Just look at pictures at the beginning and end of each predecessor. All all of them I’ve seen, Trump actually fared best. Granted, it appears the Joester is taking things very easy but he appears to be devolving in front of our very eyes. Every time I see him speak I tend to count his fumbles, mumbles and stumbles while wondering what wonder drug the controllers may have pumped into him to give the illusion of cognizance.

 

 

 

 

RE: Growing evidence of a massive pattern of fraud in the USA

Ran across this article in my daily wanderings:

Growing evidence of a massive pattern of fraud in the USA

I first posted my initial response here:

The entire deep state is built on a fraudulent foundation. Look back, waaaaaay back, long before Lincoln back, but let’s start with the election of Lincoln. The newly forming Republican party’s primary goal was
‘internal improvements’. Today’s colloquially is infrastructure. The party was composed of money men. Here’s how it worked. The money men put politicians in office who would vote to spend public money on projects i.e. ‘internal improvements for the public good’. Once passed the money men would then be hired to carry out the ‘internal improvements’. Now one might say, whether such could ever be proven, everyone involved profited except the poor saps who paid for it all. That would be us. Granted, we do all benefit from roads, bridges, etc. however I daresay not nearly as much as a politician who enters the field relatively impoverished and ends their ‘public service’ career a multi-millionaire.

On another note concerning fraud, I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how Slo Mo Joe was declared the winner in Virginia with only 3% of the vote counted. Shady stuff has been documented in other elections as well. This year for Governor our ‘choice’ is between party faithful Youngkin (R) and a repeat command performance by Terry McAwful (D). My guess is until one of the (D)s dies or does something really really really stupid (such as standing up to a party boss)they will now tag team the Governor’s office.

What I didn’t say is what I’ve been saying forever: politics  is poison. This is nothing new. It has always been poison.

Also, once again, the only way our nation will be restored is via the intervention of God Almighty. The only way God Almighty is likely to do this is if we, the Christian citizens of this nation, confess and repent of our wicked ways and ask Him to restore our nation. All other “options” will destroy our republic.

Revealed! The Plot Behind Push to Defund Police

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Minimum Wage – Maximum Insanity

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.

Three Fingers Back At You – Dems!

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.

The United States is a Constitutional Republic – We Citizens Are NOT Insurgents

An insurgent definition via Grrrgle: “1 : a person who revolts against civil authority or an established government especially : a rebel not recognized as a belligerent. 2 : one who acts contrary to the policies and decisions of one’s own political party.”

Key word here “revolts” as in revolution as in revolutionary. This defines those who desire to transform our nation into a democracy or a socialist/communist state. Our nation is none of these things. Our nation is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. Pardon me for raising my voice but this term seems to be overlooked again and again.

What is a constitutional republic? It is a nation founded by a document called a constitution. Said document expressly limits what our government can and cannot do. Ours also expressly defines in ten amendments certain God-given rights to ensure they are protected. This document provides a framework for us, as citizens to govern ourselves. WE are the “government” so to speak because WE are endued with the authority to govern ourselves via elected representatives.

Thus, as citizens we cannot, by definition, simply be labeled “insurgents”. I was going to say “unless we act forcefully against our own government” however, after a second thought this does not fall within logical parameters. Consider this: those charged with enforcing the law of the land are allowed a certain amount of leeway when it comes to using force. Our nation as even resorted to violence countless times against individuals and even other nations. Even in our own history The Battle of Athens, TN (AKA the McMinn County War)force was used when corruption was rampant. These citizens were not “insurgents”. They had no intention of overturning or overthrowing their government but rather restoring it. My contention here is the use of force alone does not define insurgency. Force must be justifiable, ultimately in a court of law in necessary, but it cannot be the standard for defining an insurgency. Neither does an act or acts by one or more citizens justify the use of force. Certainly, even some of those trying to forcefully transform our nation into something we are not are, by definition, insurgents.

In short, there must be another way. First we, as citizens of this nation must recognize a true definition of “insurgency”, whether said definition follows my ideas or not. Second, we citizens must accept the responsibilities endued upon us be birth or naturalization. We need to step up, claim our right to govern ourselves and throw the true insurgents out. We need not do this violently. We have the force of the law of the land – our constitution. As for those who are truly insurgent, there is a simple standard we can apply to our representatives: have they voted or supported laws or actions contrary to constitutional constraints. At this point we need only ONE metric – this last impeachment and trial of Donald J. Trump.

It does not take a legal scholar to understand the wording or intent of an impeachment. It is to remove a sitting government official. Donald J. Trump is not. That is all. End of story. Thus those voting to impeach this private citizen or continue with this blatant abuse of their granted authority are themselves unfit to continue in office. We need to stand up and insist they not only stop this instant, but immediately resign from office. Once we rid ourselves of these political hacks, we can continue to purge our respective governments of those who would corrupt the foundational document of our nation. Note, by “purge”, I in no way mean anything violent but simply demanding they step down.

This could be the rebirth of our constitutional republic, however it will not happen on its own. It can only be the result of citizens stepping up to our rightful place.

John and the Coming Conviction of Former President Trump

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?

Consider Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s words:

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?

Independence Day Revisited…

Today we commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The full text of this Declaration is included below. Many of the colonists grievances do not apply today. No “king” denies our liberty. In his place we’ve established “our betters” to do what no king could do… rule us with an iron fist.

Our forefathers bravely put forth the radical concept of self-government. They put documents in place – the Articles of Confederation and later the Constitution for the United States of America to secure the rights and liberties of the newly freed thirteen sovereign states while providing to include additional states in their merry band.

Their vision was only partly successful. While our nation itself thrived economically, partially due to the enormous resources inherent in this continent and partly due to a relatively free economy.

Then greed and the money men took over. They bought politicians. They used their influence to smash competitors with regulation and rape the citizens via taxation – the very things the colonists fought and died over.

Now the money men – the controllers have this nation in a death grip. Many no longer even live here. Most others can relocate elsewhere at their convenience – all the while exacting pounds of flesh from us citizens.

Laughably, some promote racial wars by demanding reparations for the slavery in our past. Why is this laughable? Because we are slaves of the controllers in the here and now. They own us and they know it.

Remember our Independence. I am sorry to say, true independence is not even something anyone alive today can remember. It was stolen from us long ago.

All is not lost. While some are sure to mock me, we do still have the framework to reclaim our independence – our right to self-government. To accomplish this we need to stand up as citizens and demand a return to our constitutional republic.

Throw out the money men – dissolve the political parties – dismantle the onerous deep state and start fresh.

God bless,

Andy

The following text is a transcription of the Stone Engraving of the parchment Declaration of Independence (the document on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.) The spelling and punctuation reflects the original.

In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

General Flynn Agrees

Thanks to ZeroHedge.com, I saw this op-ed from recently vindicated General Flynn.  While we may differ on certain points and approaches, we have very common ground on the principles!

Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: If We Don’t Act, 2% of the People Are About To Control the Other 98%

Many (okay two of the three) readers here probably know what the III % means – the estimation our own Revolutionary War was fought and won by a mere 3% of the population. General Flynn’s article somewhat mirrors this concept while turning the tables in favor of the radicals… or rather their controllers. No doubt there are those on both sides familiar with the tools used to seize control in many circumstances.

Once again I say there is a better way – a peaceful way. We have the one tool required to not only restore our nation but to actually establish a true constitutional republic. This tool is our Constitution. It is our basis for self-government. However WE must learn to use this tool effectively if we are to bring our nation back from the brink of utter destruction.

God bless,

Andy
