ELECTION 2020 – WATCH YOUR NAME!

November 10, 2019

I wanted to write about this sooner, soon after the Tuesday election, so we wouldn’t forget…(but someone dialed up the  pain a few notches around here, so I had to get a handle on that….think I’m okay for a while now…)

_____________________________________________________

VENEZUELA

I’m just going to have to have an ongoing series on next year’s national election; it’s less than a year away now.  I’m not confident about the whole ordeal, but what makes me really concerned now is . . . .

Well, do you know why there are no more zoo animals left in Venezuela?

Venezuela,  that richest of South American countries;  swimming in oil;  playground of the rich;  lively, happy people. . .

I just finished watching the second season of Jack Ryan  (Tom Clancy’s character).   The first season was superb;  this second season was pretty good.   It took place largely in Venezuela during a time of their presidential election.    Many subplots (just like a Clancy novel) but chiefly focusing on election fraud by the current  Leftist (socialist)  president. In order to retain power,  he had to shut down the voting early because his opponent was winning.

So why no more, or hardly any, zoo animals left in Venezuela?

Because  in real life  the leadership there has been uber-radical Leftist for quite some time now.   All the money has gone to the very few socialists at the top of the government, and the people are unbelievably impoverished.   No more “goods and services.”   Some, who can, have to travel to neighboring Columbia in order to buy food and other necessities.    Toilet paper is non-existent for most people.

Medical observations reported that Venezuelans have each lost an average of twenty pounds of body weight!       Society has broken down and is chaotic and dangerous.   Hungry people are desperate people.    Desperately hungry people will eat anything they can get their hands on.  Cats and dogs were eaten.   And so were the zoo animals.  No money to pay for the salaries of the zookeepers, no money to pay for the upkeep of the animals.   It was reported that zoos were broken into by people searching for protein.

The Jack Ryan story shows how this begins, and it begins with election fraud.  Once Leftists are in power,  although it varies country by country,  they will do anything to remain in power and to gather more power.

“By any means necessary.”    That is the motto of these marxist/socialist/progressives.

I see in Europe elections are held, the people vote for something, but the election results are ignored if they do not conform with the socialist agenda.   (They’ll just keep arranging for more elections over the same issue, so the people don’t get too angry.)

 

ETERNAL VIGILANCE

And that goes for the United States too. We are not immune.   Our Founding Fathers told us that the price of freedom is Eternal Vigilance.

So what do we need to be vigilant about?   That’s what I want to do, from time to time,  in this year of the 2020 election – put the spotlight on some things you should know.

I’ll start with a small story about a big issue – voter fraud.   I wrote about a lot of voter fraud during the 2016 election – but it’s happening again.

Remember the Kentucky voting just last week?   A big, big deal was made of the fact that a Democrat won the position of governor, even though the state went overwhelmingly Republican for other offices.   The Democrat won by a very small margin – I think the count is still being contested –  but now we find  out how this “win” was engineered.

You’ve heard all the controversy about registering voters at the Department of Motor Vehicle offices,  the DMV where you get your driver’s license?    Of course it’s controversial:

PEOPLE WHO ARE CITIZENS OF OTHER COUNTRIES CAN GET A DRIVER’S LICENSE IN AMERICA!!

Now sort that out!!!!    In many cases,  you need just a driver’s license in order to vote.

I’m tired, not feeling too well, so I’ll just copy-and-paste a short article here.  It’s a story about   175,000  “Mr. and Mrs. Tore’s”:

 

Just weeks before the Kentucky election, 175,000 purged voters were put back on the registration rolls after Democrat challenger Attorney General Andy Beshear sued to have the inactive voters reinstated.

A recently released recorded phone call between the Kentucky Board of Elections office and a journalist named Tore shows that Tore and her immigrant husband, who is ineligible to vote, were placed on the Kentucky voter rolls as registered Democrats.

The only problem is, Tore and her husband haven’t lived in the state Kentucky for years and both of them have never registered as Democrats.

 

The Democrat candidate petitioned to have these non-existent, non-qualified names put on the voter registration lists.

“By any means necessary.”

(I don’t have a dog in that Kentucky fight,  and I know both candidates are flawed,  but I recognize voter fraud when I read about it.)

Who gets to vote in your state?     Do some people even know that they voted?

Eternal Vigilance?    What are we supposed to be looking for?

AMOK WITH MENDACITY

September 26, 2019

Once, an educated young man would learn the contents and meaning of Dante’s Inferno and its nine circles of Hell.

dante liars hell

The eighth circle is for liars, etc.    It’s good to know what dangers lie ahead for you , when you die,  so you can work to avoid them now.   Hell is forever.

People,  human beings, in the modern world are endangered from sheer ignorance.

_______________________________________________________________________

“AMOK WITH MENDACITY”

If you know some Spanish,  you might be familiar with the “word of the day” –  mendacious.   It’s making deliberately false statement;  lying on purpose;  or more softly put,  “not telling the truth.”

So here is the big lie the American public is supposed to believe:   “President Trump called the leader of the Ukraine, Zelensky,  and pressured him with threats of withholding financial aid that is rightfully theirs if Zelensky doesn’t begin an investigation into Joe Biden to help Trump win the 2020 election.”

Boom!   There it is, with slight variations.   They are  allowed to say this on radio and television not only without any objection,  but also,  I’ve heard commonly,   the false statement is followed by one, two, three, four or more comments from  people who are “outraged”   by the evil corruption of President Trump.

Democrats are running amok with mendacity.

Straight out of the playbook of Saul Alinsky and Joseph Goebbels.   Tell a lie big enough, often enough, and eventually people will accept it as truth.

Do you really want America to be “transformed” in that way, with the methods used by the Barack Hussein person who first announced his plan to transform America?

Each phrase of that statement of Trump’s evil deeds can be easily refuted with the facts that have been attested to by all the involved parties, including a transcript of the phone call targeted by the Democrats.   Each phrase!     None of these deeds were even discussed in that phone call.

Politicians and Liars

Dante 8th

The appointed  unnamed “whistleblower” himself admits under oath that he never heard the conversation he blew the whistle on,   he doesn’t know what was in the phone call,  and now his identity has been revealed as a rabid anti- Trump operative who has worked before in fabricating scandals about President Trump — who was also placed in the intelligence community close to the White House in order to be able to spy on the president . . .  watching for anything that can be manipulated into a scandal.

He is yet another  anti-Trump plant.

The Democrats know the transcript doesn’t support their accusations, of course, which is why they have to cast doubt on the transcript,  but that’s not surprising.

People are getting so angry at being lied to.     After feeling angry and helpless for a while, it’s good to move on to action;  a push-back of some kind, according to your abilities and opportunities.

Make noise!  Tell people!   Inform people!  Write letters to . ..   newspapers?  local television personalities?     to your senators and congressmen?   All disseminators of lies.

____________________________________________________

 

McGuire,  the new national security advisor   was reported (especially by CNN) to have resigned suddenly,  disgusted with the White House, and unhappy that he is not being allowed to speak the truth freely.    That was a several-hour long news cycle, complete with all kinds of details to flesh out the reason for the resignation.

McGuire was just one more evidence of the chaos around Trump and his amateurish inability to run a government, as well as his dictatorial ruling style.

Looked pretty bad — until McGuire himself got on the camera and said, Hey, no!  I didn’t resign.    I like this job.    I’m not a quitter.   I’ve never quit any job I’ve had.   And he goes on to say that Trump is good to work with and they get along well.

And –– zwoop! ––  CNN found another black hole to make their story disappear into.

I love it the time all the news media reported that Trump couldn’t be any less interested in the problems of a certain part of the world, couldn’t even be bothered to visit our troops stationed in that place,  and he was not there now:

Media Trump did not visit

I remember being astonished and amused when the next day the media published this photo of Trump visiting the troops (where he was reported not to be).    No correction of their previous stories.

cnn

Furthering the Trump fable.

I’ve got so many stories, photos, and video clips of media stories that have turned out to belies that they’re cluttering up my computer.   You can collect your own set of media lies.  Just even keep a mental list of them.

And watch for those political candidates for our presidency to repeat the lies they hear — as though they knew the truth.

“By any means”  –  win by any means possible,  by any means necessary;  anything in order to progressively advance the Revolution.

What’s at stake here?     There have always been liars  – and politicians – of course.  But what we have here is a culture of acceptable lying, from movies and videos creating a false world for us to entertain us, to all the false information we have forming our society from the media . . .

This lying permeates the whole culture.

CNN opinion piece

 

How bad can it get?  Is it about as bad as it can get?   Is this the end of our society?  our civilization?

The Bible kind of indicates that this is a sign of coming destruction:  In the little second book of Thessalonians, chapter 2, is this verse,  (KJV)  –   “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,  . . .”

Yep.   The world seems aflame with lies today.

End Time Globe

 

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to . . .”    You’d better know how to finish that statement!!!!

 

WHAT PIRATES TAKE – 2

September 24, 2019

It’s pretty well understood that Socialism of any stripe is simply State-sponsored thievery.  The Rulers take from one group of people and give some of it to another group of people who didn’t earn it.   As you should be teaching your children:

SOC WELFARE EXPL

 

There is a lot more to Socialism than simply giving money to unemployed people.     The (many)  Democrats who hope to become the candidate for president each has his own  spectacular Socialist idea to offer to  people so they’ll get their vote.

One clever artist looked at some prominent Democrats, and knowing what they have in store for us citizens,   this artist came up with his observation:

DEMS Pillage People

Funny, huh?    Or not.      Let’s hope no more of them get into positions of power.   Not when pillaging us is really what’s on their minds.

And who else  “pillages”?

Pirates are pillagers.

Pirates can be  legitimate.

In the 16th century  Queen Elizabeth I employed several famous pirates to keep the oceans safe for England’s ships — and if they pirated off of enemy vessels,  she would protect them.

Pirates then, pirates now;  they all take something away from our world.   I won’t make long analogies here,  but what we lose to  actual maritime pirates  struck me as very similar to what we’re losing to any or  our Socialists who  have been given power here in the United States.

Losing  our money and our wealth:   Of course when taxes go up for Socialist causes, we give to them our money in the form of taxes and inflation and higher costs of running government.       With waste, cronyism,  the inefficiencies  of corruption, an ever-growing bureaucracy, there is  less money to spend,  the overall wealth of our citizens diminishes.

These young Socialist candidates – some of them young – set a general tone of lawlessness in our country.   Don’t respect the president,  don’t honor the Constitution, don’t obey any federal laws you don’t like,  don’t obey Natural Law and its moral system.   Such attitudes lead to crime, deteriorating urban areas,    costly immorality,  public agitation, depression, and loss of morale    (and more).

Hubbie was a driver training teacher for many years.  Every once in a while he’d have a patrolman talk to his class about . . .  whatever policemen tell teenagers about driving.     An informative officer  told the class that there are surprisingly  very few people who break ordinary civil laws of property and driving.     And that’s a good thing because there are not enough police officers and there would be chaos  if more people decided to disobey the laws.

He said if 10% of people were lawless,   there would be no way to keep the peace.   Our safety and security would be a thing of the past.

Civil society hangs by a thread, when you think of it.

 

 

 

WHEN LEFT BECOMES RIGHT – with Greta

September 22, 2019

(Phooey!  This is a big topic,  too big for one post.)

When Left becomes “Right”   —  and I don’t mean “Correct.”  I mean When Leftist-Socialists “become”    Far  Right on the political spectrum.

Why can that happen?   How can that happen?    When the deeds of the  Leftist-Socialists become so repugnant to the public that the Left wants it to be called “Right,”  that’s when.

This is not related to what can be  truthfully  observed   —   this process is related to overall, long-term public perception.

Perception.   Your perception trumps Truth.  (They hope.)

EcoFascistgirl 2

The National-Socialist Party in Germany became experts in molding public perception.   They were Socialists and  used Socialist methods of ruling over people, economies, their military, their scientific research . .  .  a Socialist must rule over everything:  “from cradle to grave.”

The young girl in the National-Socialist poster above influenced many Germans to accept their ideal of young, healthy Na..zi  youth:  she is  blonde,  Germanic looking, healthy,  willing and able to breed more youth.    “Kinder, Küche, Kirche.” *   That’s where young women belong, according to them.

It was an effective image:   very young; blonde; traditional pigtails, one on each side;  slightly  offset eyes;    innocent face of a true believer.
Re-read that above paragraph!

EcoFacsist girl

(not Photo-shopped,  according to the source – “Diamond”)

 

Very young, blonde, two pigtails, true believer —  you might recognize the face of the girl they are using in the present day to promote the VERY SAME Leftist goals!**   As you may remember, her name is Greta Thunberg.    What is she being used for?  (Quote)  “To raise global awareness of the dangers of climate change.”

Presumably  anthropogenic climate change — as in “humans are a disease on the planet and are destroying the world! ”

Wait . . .    how did National-Socialist propaganda become mainstream Leftist propaganda?

#1    Hitler called his socialist Party  “Nationalist”  because he differed with the goals of worldwide global socialism  promoted and dearly longed for by the Soviets.    Hitler hated the Slavs, the Russians,and put many in concentration camps.    No, Germany was to rule over the world, not Russia and their worldwide socialism.   You can’t have a Third “Reich”  if you share power with other Socialists,.

So now we have the National-Socialists named,  and shortened into the word  Na…zi.

#2    Hitler and his regime became so repugnant that after the war, everyone wanted to condemn it and distance themselves from it.    Understandable.    But the Socialists — who use the same tactics as Hitler’s regime in Russia,  Africa,  Red China, some South American countries;   and becoming common and recognizable elsewhere . . . .  those Global Socialist-Progressives-Democrats do not want to be associated with the National-Socialists are not Socialists.

#3  The last step in  distancing themselves from what happened in Germany under the Socialists there is to take control of the media and education systems around the world.  National Socialism is so bad, that we’re just going to deny they were Socialists and give them a new name . . .  we’ll say they are on the Right. ***

Stalin and Boy Rdg

Socialists-Progressives-Democrats   educating  children

Think they can’t call Left Right now?    Well, how common is it to believe that Na…zis are radicals of the far Right?   I mean,  you go a little bit Conservative,  which is a normal Right point of view, and smear all those on the Right with the name Na…zi.

Why,  you call people on the Right either Nationalists or Fascists —  and then you get  revolutionary groups on the Far Left calling themselves”Anti-Fascist”  i.e.  Antifa,  using Fascist techniques of social disruption themselves.  . And everything is acceptable if it furthers the  Global Socialist Revolution —   which is far from over.

Anything –  anything – the Left doesn’t like will get you labeled as a Na…zi,  and Nationalist,   a Far Right Radical . . .  and politicians don’t like that.  People don’t like that.

The label is an effective silencer.      Just take note of  Google’s  new algorithms.   And Facebook’s.   And Twitter’s.  And YouTube’s.    Actually,  everyone in the entertainment-news media — people feel they’re not being given  “balanced”  information.  And they know they are no longer being given a public voice.

Google Dictator

.*     “Kinder, Küche, Kirche.”    German for children,  kitchen, and church — where German women fulfilled their duty to the Fatherland.    The Left had to drop this because you can’t fight the Feminists who follow Marx and Engels and Lenin to “get the women out of the families and into the factories” —  so now there is a duty to NOT have children, expressed by so many female celebritioes today.

 

.**  UN representatives, in speeches and videos,  as well as Margaret
Thatcher, as well as many scientists who recognize this — have all been quoted as saying that the “manmade”  Eco-disaster purported to be occurring right now is a massive worldwide scheme to transfer the wealth of First World countries to the UN Global Governance system, where they will determine where that money goes and for what purpose.   A massive transfer of wealth.

Scare people (children)  enough, and it will happen.   Ridicule those who are not supporters and it will happen.

PART 1 – G. UN . S according to the Left

August 6, 2019

Okay, it wasn’t a “gun”  that did this,  but just to begin:

MAGA Personof Color

The man had just purchased his new hat and  was simply walking down a sidewalk in (Manhattan) New York City one afternoon when he was jumped by a group of teenagers, beaten up because, as they yelled at him,  he was wearing that hat.     The teenagers most likely a product of the city schools and their social media,  both sources of virulent, intolerant radical Leftist propaganda.

Well, here’s the report:

He says the group of about 15 “kids” yelled “F*** Trump” and stomped on him. One of them smashed his head into a scaffold. Turan says he suffered a fracture in his cheek and a badly swollen eye. He’s awaiting an eye specialist to determine if there is any permanent damage to his sight.

Then there was the white man this weekend who was assaulted and chased away by a young black man shouting “I don’t let no Whites on my street.”  Words to that effect.

Then there is Ron Paul,  national political figure,  who is back in the hospital this week having surgery to remove portions of his lung which was damaged when his neighbor, an intolerant Leftist attacked him from behind.   Ron Paul never saw it coming.  It put him in the hospital for several weeks,  but he is still suffering from the brutality of that attack.

Okay, guns:   55 people shot in Chicago this weekend,  five of them dead.   That would be the South Side of Chicago, where everyone votes Democrat and hates Donald Trump.

Baltimore,  another city ruled by the Democrats for many, many decades, intolerant towards anyone on the Right;   200 people killed this year to date.

Remember the Gilroy Garlic shooting?    Santino Legan.    Wasn’t in the news cycle for very long.  When it first happened,  you could just feel the “news” media   wind up for the pitch against guns!   The fever for gun control was building, building . . .   building . . .  and then it disappeared from the news.  What happened?     Well, the shooter himself said he did it because he was “angry,”  but he  turned out to be not a “white supremacist”  Trump supporter but rather an admirer of   (Is.  Lam)  and a fan of a particularly radical Shi’ite leader and wrote of him and shared his photo on Instagram.

Who is that leader?  An Iranian source said:

 . . .   that anybody who idolizes Ali Asghar – Legan’s grandfather’s namesake – would view themselves as a Shia zealot to Islam.

The media is reporting that Legan committed the shooting because he was “angry.” His Instagram was taken down shortly after he was identified.

Admirer of   (Is.  Lam.)     Story all gone.

This weekend’s El Paso shooter?    A radical environmentalist, according to his Progressive “manifesto.”      Wants to get rid of all Hispanic people in our country,   just like the National Socialists did,  according to his writings.      Hates President Trump and stated he was not influence by Trump.

Dayton, Ohio, another Leftist/Socialist  who admires  Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, according to his writings.    ReTweets Ocasio-Cortez.     Hates Trump. . . . .  His Twitter profile lists him as supporting socialism and being really angry about the 2016 election.

I don’t know.    Let radical Leftists get ahold of guns and . . .   well,  by their actions and by their words they seem to be dangerously intolerant of anyone they disagree with.

A Socialist  (socialist/progressive/leftist/communist/Alinskyite)  cannot tolerate disagreement.     The opposition must be destroyed.   It was the Clintons who first brought into American politics:  “The Politics of Personal Destruction.”   It worked for them.    They apparently se an effective pattern.

_____________________________________

In a speech today President Trump listed a few things he thought are responsible for this kind of violence.  I don’t think he listed the main cause (easy for any non-progressive historian to see) and I don’t think he listed the influence  of the media.

I took notes on something I heard today about Tom Arnold; some of the words are mine, some are from what I heard:     (Hope you can read it.) –

Tom

So,  “guns and Leftists.”

 

 

 

 

JACKBOOTS ON THEIR FACES

July 15, 2019

Take a trip with me to Socialist Great Britain:

__________________________________________________________________

July 14th is the day we honor St. Bonaventure.     Wow!  So much to his life!!   But I won’t take the time here . . .

St.  Bonaventure wrote:   “The fear of God forbids a man to give his heart to transitory things, which are the true seeds of sin.”      (Not “sin” as in doing bad things;  but sin, as in neglecting God in general, keeping Him out of your life.)

____________________________________________________________

St.. Bonaventure is right;  but then again,  “transitory” issues are an important way to indicate where our heart is.     We don’t  “give our hearts to God”  and then sit back and think pretty thoughts;  there is work to be done, wrongs to be righted,  people who need our aid and comfort.

The “jackboots” in the title refer to the well-known comment by George Orwell: 

Jackboot

In today’s America,  with so many mis-educated younger people flirting with the empty promises of Socialism,   we need to keep this warning from George Orwell in mind —  every day, especially as we are approaching another election.

Although this image is Socialism  ( either right away or as it breaks down eventually )   as awful as it is,  try now to replace that man’s face in the poster with the face of good, gentle elderly folks, living right now in the UK.

An elderly woman or man’s face, under the jackboot.

Jackboots history

hobnails on the bottom of jackboots

Sweet old people who lived their lives, did their work, raised their children, and are now living out the “rewards of old age” with their family, friends, and pets.     Socialism makes it nearly impossible to save for your future, so these elderly people are living in “pension houses” – government subsidized apartments.   They keep their apartments neat and clean, and often grow gardens to beautify their surroundings as well as to grow herbs and small garden vegetables.

Garden 3 old man

Here’s one “pensioner.”  Notice his “garden” behind him.  Or what’s left of it.

When a young socialist is given a position of power,  even a small amount of power,  that person feels compelled to use that power over others.    In this case, in the UK, that person was a young women who is a city councilman has decreed that all these private gardens must be destroyed:

“She Who Must Be Obeyed” *    — because she is a Socialist official.

Garden 6

This was once someone’s garden.

And this, two elderly sisters walking on what was once their prized garden.  The women in the white top is 86 years old and nearly totally blind:

Garden 4

Plants were just trampled down  and discarded . . .

Garden 2

Flowers, herbs,  fresh fruit and vegetables.

Garden 5 patio

Friends visiting,  next to the no-more garden.

I know how much effort it takes to create and maintain a garden, even a small one.   Never thought much about the “effort” when I was younger,   but as you grow older you do indeed recognize the physical effort required.     And you take great joy in it.

It is heartbreaking to watch these people speak of how much they’ve lost.  **

We Americans were taught that “The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance.”  Neither sinning against others nor any emerging authoritarianism  can stand a spotlight thrown on them.      The elderly people and their friends formed a little protest group to call attention to the totalitarian new rule, and the good news is that the decree to destroy more gardens has been rescinded — temporarily.

Rescinded with the smarmy socialist phrase:    “Oh, we like people to beautify their own surroundings.”      Throw your own spotlight on the sincerity of that phrase!

“The price of  freedom is eternal vigilance.”     Or,   more accurately, from the pen of Irishman John Philpot Curran:         “The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.”

These elderly people in the UK have everything to do with your life,  with our lives, even here in America.    Though the UK must solve their own problems and injustices,   if we in America do nothing, we will have more and more of these injustices thrown upon us, as we lose our personal freedoms.   A little rule here, a little regulation there, doesn’t affect me yet, doesn’t affect me yet,  doesn’t affect me . . . . .

I’m glad to hear with increasing frequency that those who want to conserve traditional American values (and it’s happening in the Church too)  are more and more telling each other that we have to STOP sitting back and letting things happen to us – we need to resist; we need to fight back;  we need to assert traditional values which work and which built up Western Civilization.

We don’t  “give our hearts to God”  and then sit back and think pretty thoughts;  there is work to be done, wrongs to be righted,  people who need our aid and comfort.

____________________________________

. *    “She who must be obeyed” is, of course, the only appellation  allowed to be used when referring to the dread queen in H.Rider Haggard’s  book “She” —  great fun to read!

Not so fun when you come across these harridans in real life

 

. **   Among The Four Sins That Cry Out to God for Vengeance is  “the oppression of widows and orphans.”     This comes pretty darn close.

Again:

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”

 

 

DOMINATE BY LYING

July 11, 2019

  “Miseducated Idiots”

 

_____________________________________________________________

There were a lot of little “baby steps”  that my mind took which eventually led me into the Church.     Perhaps the biggest catalyst in my decision-making was the realization that  in order to prove that they are right,  other denominations  had to actually tell me  lies about the Catholic Church.

Now, I don’t want to expand on that right now,  but I was so surprised when opinion after opinion after opinion against the Church all proved, one by one as I examined them, to be actual lies.   Perhaps falsehoods or misconceptions,  but non-factual assertions and unsupported statements, nevertheless.

I know those are complex, complicated sentences, but I can at least tell you what a
“clean”  feeling it is to face the truth head on and be comfortable with it!

There is tension when you have to live according to lies and keep proving a lie is the truth.

How dismaying it is to observe that same  process in our current spirit of revolution and revolt,   every day, delivered to me by the entertainment-news media.

Sheeesh!

I’m no fan of women’s sports teams  — maybe I should write about that some day — but I did take notice that the American women’s soccer team won the World Cup.

America wins.  Nice.

And then I saw this tweet by President Trump:

Nice again, to take time from presidential duties to congratulate a sports team.

And then swiftly followed the outrage and bitter arrogance — accompanied by unsubstantiated falsehoods about the president.

I heard what was probably the team captain speak in response to this congratulations:  Embarrassing profanity coming from a young woman’s mouth.   Profanity of the worst kind, with the worst intentions.

And then – especially to my foreign readers – charges of racism and sexism and whatever else against the president, with absolutely no proof, not even anecdotal proof.

Oh, I’m aware of how some of these accusations began — how the president’s words or actions were deliberately misrepresented, misread, misinterpreted.  I remember the genesis of the accusations that the media then took up as these terms became Gospel.    Then the feeble, scarcely noticed retractions . . . .

These  false accusations are willingly taken up by any Global socialist who feels that President Trump stands in the way of their “progress’ towards the ongoing Leftist Revolution.    They sound like miseducated idiots, but they vehemently believe what they are saying.

The latest email revelations by the British ambassador to the United States show that no matter how high in governance a man goes, he can still fall victim to baseless propaganda.

What to do?    Almost all of us just sit back,  “tsk tsk,”  and go on about our daily lives.  After all, what can you do?   It takes a whole lot of energy and effort to oppose falsehoods.

It’s okay.  We can’t reach out to everyone and persuade them differently.    But we do have to know that LYING HAS CONSEQUENCES.     And we won’t like any of these consequences:  divisiveness;   uncertainty about who you can trust;   enmity;   always keeping score;   an intrusion of “politics” into everything . . .

And possibly one day,  Civil War.

And revolution.

And dominance by the Leftists, who wrote the book on winning by deception.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAY DAY THE TERRIBLE

May 2, 2019

May Day has a terrible connotation too, when it is wrenched out of the hands of common, everyday people and orchestrated by powerful political forces who take power “in the name of the common people.”

Convoluted, yes?

Since the 1920’s  Socialism had begun to be inserted into our education system in America.   (John Dewey:  “education for-living”;  education for social engineering; “education” that no longer educates….)

RED ED

Here is this year’s triumph of Socialism over Education.    (United States, 2019)

Makes me ashamed that I was ever a public school teacher.  Decades ago I saw it, so did other teachers, but we were powerless.

Now three generations of children have been raised unabashedly Socialist.

The “end” point of Socialism is State Control of . . .  everything,  whether it is called democratic socialism,  parliamentary socialism,  communism, or fascism.   The State controls and regulates everything,  giving you permissions —  if . . . .  if you comply.

And if not?

socialist DEATH TOLL

 

The toll is greater now,  because  (1)  as we look back in history, we can  see these numbers are generally underestimated, and (2)  Socialism has continued to advance elsewhere.   Anyone counting the number of dead in Venezuela?

Socialism is always the imposition of the will of a powerful State onto that State’s own citizens.    Probably safer (in the minds of some people)  to become a Socialist and get in on the action.  However,  Socialism has NEVER worked, everywhere it’s been tried.

It should be such a good idea:   Give the government everything,  the government will give you good things:

Socialism's FREE electricity for free

Why wouldn’t under-educated young people fall for it?

 

The fall of societies may be slow and prolonged or it may be rapid,  but societies do fail under Socialism.   Socialist systems are illogical and unrealistic – that is,  not related to the real world.  

And as they fail,  more and more rules and regulations, laws and restrictions have to be put into place.  they may harm the nation, but at least they tamp down the opposing voices and keep the people under control.

So what’s the connection to May Day?   Why May 1st for the Global Socialists?

When formal socialism was being created in the 19th century,   the leaders relied upon the support of  “workers.”      Working conditions in city factories and industry were inhumane, and this is where the socialists hoped to get their support.

A movement went out to limit the number of hours worked to 8 hours each day.  I think that’s a good thing.  “Workers” in the Middle Ages often worked less than that, and their Guilds took care of them, from training, to assuring just recompense, to material support in times of trouble.   (The guild system broke down after the Protestant movement began.)

Modern type trade organizations and unions announced that May 1, 1886 would be the Day that  “eight hours shall constitute a legal day’s labor.”

Opposition,  riots,  bombings accompanied that proclamation, and socialists from Europe got on the bandwagon and used the deaths and injuries of the riots as their own launching pads for “workers’ reform”  under Socialist control.

It’s complex.    Good goals, terrible means.

May Day is now their day to celebrate “Workers”  around the world.    “Workers of the World,  Unite!!!”

But remember,  “Workers”   are not people;  they are human  resources . . .  factored into the bottom line of politics and corporate management, and must be “managed” (controlled):.

So these:

mayday china

And also these:

mayday tanks.jpg

Protect these:

mayday workers

 

There were big May Day celebrations all over the world.    Guns and artillery on display,  flags and soldiers, crowd-enthusiasm.

 

May Day can remind us of “terrible”  things too.   Let us be on guard about this version of May Day — BECAUSE  . .

Poster Socialism SKULLS

 

   . . . . .  there are people in our country who would like to give Socialism another try.

NOTHING MORE CERTAIN

April 3, 2019

Hard to be strictly funny about politics nowadays.

_______________________________________________________________

It’s that time of year . . . .

“There’s nothing more certain than death and taxes, ”  so the saying goes.

scan0003

I just wrote out all the checks for my taxes,  four separate envelopes,  four separate destinations.

And that was right after the month in which I had to pay for a new garbage disposal,  a big furnace repair,  a hot water heater repair,  and a water purification system for my home.

So I kind of understand the question up there in the cartoon.   If I’m trying hard to support my own household,  do I have to work so hard to support my   (largely unelected)  government officials too?

For more than a hundred years of our nation’s history  our federal government paid its operating expenses without an income tax —  and without a deficit.     There were brief periods of income tax ,  usually after costly and necessary wars,  but this permanent duty to pay an income tax is scarcely more than a hundred years old!

Don’t know what all to conclude from that.

But what I do observe is that recently the various departments of our federal government have become highly politicized,  including the IRS,  which has been used to suppress and put out of business numerous Conservative functions and social organizations.

Just observation.  And saving news articles.

All pointing to the fact that you pay less and you operate more freely if you agree with the radical Left.   Socialism and transforming American society by rejecting traditional Western values of humanity,  religion, and equal justice before the Law.

Like being “on the *Farm”:  “All animals are equal.   Some animals  are more equal than others. ”

Highly politicized government functioning.

It could be a dangerous time in America.

ROARING WEATHER

February 8, 2019

It’s not often that the weatherman predicts  “Roaring Winds”  as part of his weather report.

But he did yesterday, and we did have roaring winds all night long,  into today, from the sound of it.    Along with the high winds we had  drizzle, heavy rain, sleet,  snow, and a temperature plunge from 52 degrees down to -6 (below zero) wind chill, this morning.  Oh, yes,  and sunshine with snow squalls.    Normal winter weather(s).

Throughout all this, somewhere along the way —

Door free front  .     — my front door thawed out and I’m able to open it now.

Ditto the back sliding glass doors –

Door free back

So, just to report up here in The Spruce Tunnel,  I’m free! and no longer iced into my house by frozen doors.

Our Winter Faery:

Winter Fairy 300

I took this  photo recently, and it astonishes me that I can’t remember where.   It was hanging on a wall in a public place;  I walked by,  did a double-take,  and embarrassed myself by taking out my camera right in front of a  bunch of strangers . .  . .

Well,  you find interesting pictures where you can,  and this one reminded me of my own back yard — and the woodsy sprites and fairies that haunt human imaginations.

Hey!  Anything is possible,  right?

dignity of a congressman

She is the new young congressman who tells us we can eschew airplanes and cars and build a railway system to cross the oceans!

(At least   I  don’t really,  really believe in magic and fairies.)

Here is my frozen fairy-world back yard:

Weather Iced Trees

Normal, after an ice storm.

Our birds are not going to get a drink:

Weather no birds

We’re actually having a normal winter,  full of everything that happens during the winter in the Far North.

Here is the surface of my driveway:

Weather iced driveway

It was actually not slippery to walk on because the ice had come down with snow and sleet, producing a measure of bumpy traction:

 

Weather not slippery

 

Another astonishment came, however, from a “weather”  report from the entertainment-news media on the radio last night.   The news reader —   (I wish they could hire readers who could actually read and pronounce the words they’re reading.  They obviously have no idea what they’re reading –  which maybe lets them off the hook for this:

“2018 is yet again an extremely warm year on top of a long-term global warming trend,” said GISS Director Gavin Schmidt. . . .     Two U.S. agencies, the United Kingdom Met Office and the World Meteorological Organization analyzed global temperatures in slightly different ways, but each came to the same conclusion on Wednesday: 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record behind 2016, 2015 and 2017.

Followed by the ever popular:  “It’s going to GET WORSE so you’d better listen to your climate change politicians . . . .

While 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record, British meteorologists are predicting the next five years will be much hotter, maybe even record-breaking.

You know,  there’s been a lot of analysis of these ridiculous statements;  you can find it all over the Internet.    The temperature charts have been selectively used, and the “conclusions”  even contradict their own previously-published charts.

Cold weather, like today,  is not a Cold Climate,  or even evidence of a Getting-Colder Climate.  Hot weather is not Hot Climate,  nor evidence of a Getting-Hotter Climate.

The climate on any planet in the solar system  changes as it’s affected by our changing sun.

The Grand Scheme of a Massive Transfer of Wealth across the globe planned by the Global Socialist Rulers  is simply not supported by any science or any history of our planet.

Yet the scares go “roaring out” over the airwaves.

Time for us to do some roaring  back.

Listen up, dear young lady –

OUR SOCIALIST SORORITY GIRLS

February 6, 2019

Chilling !   Chilling!    

My main takeaway from the State of the Union speech:

.                         (We  can  lose our country.)

_____________________________________________________________________

(In  spite of the 76% approval of the president’s State of the Union speech,    we  can  lose our country.)

_________________________________________________________________

 

You all probably know my stance on socialism:   All aspects of our lives controlled by Central government planning — “for the good of society,”  of course.  It has never worked and never can work, no matter how earnestly and optimistically its adherents will try to make it work.

From actual experience,  socialism has always brought with it Death, in its  many unnecessary and too-early  forms and causes.   *

 

flag

My Grandma’s country lived under the menace of soviet socialism, so much so that as  this tiny country capitulated more and more, a new term was invented:  Finlandization.

russo reindeer

Finland fought against soviet socialist aggression, 1939-1941 or so,  with their skis and reindeer and brave young men, full of SISU.    That’s a word I grew up with, long after that little war.

They kind of win;  it goes down as a win for Finland because Russia had to retreat at that time.  But the win brought devastating results to Finland:

russo fin

No,  not just death of soldiers and starvation to the people.
Finlandization was the result,  accommodation to socialism;  even when there was no immediate need,  Finland became a socialist country.

 

It would take too much time to describe today’s socialist Finland right now because I want to get to Hitler’s  girls:

hitlers girls young.

Socialism gets our children, while they’re very young. **  These are national socialist girls.

hitlers girls

Hitler’s national socialist girls,  (again the color white predominates).  They are highly-favored,  privileged,  elite,  and giddy with their power.

These are “our”  socialist girls last night:

Sor girls

When President Trump said, “We will never become a socialist country,”  they booed and hissed and rolled their eyes in disrespect.

Our Congressional elite socialist sorority girls :

sor in white

Truly, it was chilling to watch.

sor pelosiBut they have a watchful leader directing them.     It was chilling also to watch her hand signals,  directing them to do this or that,  now it’s okay to stand,  now it’s not . . .     Naked Power.

Socialism is by necessity dictatorial and tyrannical and driven by “power-over”  others,  over party members and over “enemies” of their party.

 

(Latest news is that the one Democrat woman who wore pink, not white,  has been severely warned . . . .   )

 

Growing socialism, especially propagated by the entertainment-news media script readers,  is responsible for the apparent  “divisiveness” in our country.    It’s a manufactured division;  Americans are not by nature like that — away from Washington DC,  away from the media.

(I’ve always wanted to make an appeal to my foreign readers:     what you see in our entertainment-news media,  our movies,  our so-called “popular” music — none of this represents  ordinary everyday Americans.  The elites, however,  are doing their best to stir us up.   We are fearful sometimes to even speak out -m as Americans used to do.)

As much as we like our president,  and we know there is a variety of opinions,   it was chilling to watch  where the obstinate unreasoned  mindless opposition  was coming from.    It was chilling to see their numbers  growing — I think because Americans are “nice” — and we can’t really believe it.

We’re busy doing our best,   living our ordinary lives.

Not realizing we’re losing our “ordinary lives.”

Just watch the socialist Game Plan over the  next  two years  :   Investigate.  Indict.  Impeach.

Investigate.  Indict.  Impeach.

____________________________________________________________

 

.*   Death.  Over a hundred million  people killed by their own socialist leaders as the system is implemented,  as history has witnessed.

socialist DEATH TOLL

 

Death,  by increasingly lowered standard of living and unavailability of goods and products:    high prices,  high taxes,  rationing,  starvation, unattended sickness.

Death,   under “social pressure”  for the good of society:   rationing health care;   euthanasia of the unwanted,  the horror of non-voluntary euthanasia,   abortion,  and the murder of little babies in the process of being born,  or shortly after the child’s birth –

(If you are for “choice”  you ought to be able to look at the “product” of choice):

From  THIS:

sor about babies

To  THIS:

sor save me

And, yes,  it was testified to Congress,  they DO sell baby body parts,  under socialism.

Baby Bodies

 

______________________________________________________

Schools:

.**   I was a young schoolteacher and witnessed the incorporation of socialist teaching methods and the socialist curriculum into American public schools.   I fought it,  best I could.  At least in my own classrooms.    But it was then that I learned about the power of the socialist consensus.

Teacher training schools (also known as colleges or universities)  are fully saturated with socialist  principles.  The students graduating out of them know nothing different,  no alternative pedagogy.    The teachers today know only socialism, and they are teaching our children nothing but socialism.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE A TEST!

January 15, 2019

(The “teacher” in me – trying not to be too preachy.  But then, as we all know,  “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”      – Lord Acton)

___________________________________________________

Still talking about Liberty, here.  Something that should concern us all.  I’m a little disconcerted with the way things are going;  i.e.,   increasing loss of our personal Liberty.

The Truckers in America have noticed this.

trcu convoy

Some have a truckers’ strike planned for sometime in April to call attention to their liberty-less plight. *   Since I listen to their show nearly every night, I understand where they’re coming from even though the disruption to the supply chain in our country could be very bad.   (But the truckers’ strike may not happen.)

I’m going to let other people do some writing for me tonight.     First,  just for fun,   here’s an interesting bit on Liberty vs. State interference of  religious practice  from a blog written by a Father Hunwicke, of England:

—  Well, wait a minute.  if you’re not up to speed on European politics,  this might not make sense to you.  You see,  Belgium recently passed a law saying the government will no longer support particular religious requirements concerning meat.    And then Father Hunwicke contrasts that decision with Poland’s bishops declaring that such laws are prejudicial  against religious practices.

He writes with wit and  sarcasm:

Surely, it is outrageous that the Belgian regime should outlaw the provision of Kosher and Hallal meat.

I seem to remember that the Polish Bishops’ Conference opposed, successfully, the adoption of such a law in Poland. I wonder how long it will take for the generality of people to realise that secular liberalism as promoted by the Zeitgeist will give you tyranny; while a robust Catholicism is more likely to support freedom.

But then, we recall how sensitively the Belgians ran their Empire.

I wonder how aware they are that the claim of one of their ministers, that State law takes precedence over Religious law, aligns them with so many great historical figures, from Nero and Domitian down to Stalin and Hitler.

“Plucky little Belgium”, indeed.

Boorish Bully-boy Belgium.

What we can take from this is his observation that the Catholics in Poland are showing much more religious tolerance than the socialist government of Belgium.

The myth is that if you are religious, you are ipso facto “intolerant.”    Actual reality proves otherwise.     It is today’s Big State governments that are intolerant of religion — and are a danger to anyone with religious convictions.   Hence,  the American Bill of Rights,  First Amendment, specifically.     The Bill of Rights is there to restrict government power.

In the last posting I wrote about  State versus Church issues that are confronting us more and more today,   in society,  our workplace,  our public office duties.    Previously, in America,  we held on to the principle that there is no religious test  for belonging to this society.

stocks

We don’t have to prove that we are of a certain religion, nor do we have to prove that we have no religion at all, at least not one that would interfere with our  public life .

Hold on to that principle!    There is no “religious test”  for Americans.   At least there shouldn’t be.   I would recommend that you recognize it wherever this attitude crops up – and that you have “rehearsed”  ways to combat it.

Nicely, of course.  Respectfully.

 

 

_____________________________________________

The rest of this blog just repeats the last posting, with names this time of those who have acted like the Inquisitors of people nominated for public office who just happen to have religious faith.

We don’t know where this is heading,  especially is we do nothing and let it happen,  but we should all remember that    “The first thing you do as a Fascist Government is to remove all Religion. Just ask Hitler or Stalin. “

Here’s the quotation:

Quick,somebody please remind Democratic Senators, Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono, that they’re members of what’s supposed to be the tolerant party. Based on the bigoted questions they recently posed to a judicial nominee, they may think that Democrats are the heirs of the anti-Catholic Know Nothing party.

Senators Harris and Hirono challenged federal judicial nominee Brian Buescher about his affiliation with the Knights of Columbus, an international Catholic charitable organization with nearly 2 million members. What, specifically, are the senators upset about? That the Catholic organization espouses the teachings of the Catholic Church. How dare it!
And remember, Harris and Hirono aren’t the only senators making these suggestions. In 2017, Democratic Senators Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein suggested that judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s religious belief rendered her unfit for the bench. A few months before that, the supposedly progressive Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., suggested that Russell Vought, an evangelical nominee for a position in the Office of Management and Budget, was unfit for public service because of his belief in the Gospel.

Sanders’ treatment of Vought makes clear that it’s not only Catholics who should be alarmed by this trend among Democrats and progressives. The left seeks to stifle any public expressions of religious belief, whether it’s relevant to one’s job or not, and block from government anyone whose religious beliefs run counter to the ideology of the left.

TOTALITARIANSIM HAPPENS – OUR 11th HOUR

November 12, 2018

(A Veterans Day warning)

In my car, on Veterans Day:

CLOCK

 

banner flag wavy

 

Everyone knows that the immediate cause, the immediate spark, that set off WWI was the assassination of the archduke of Austria (and his wife).

wwi assass
Then things quickly spiraled out of control. What George Washington warned us about in his last address to the nation, “do not form entangling alliances with foreign powers,”  was not a part of European thinking, and so their entangling alliances drew them all into a terrible world war:

wwi entangling alliances

In the end, WWI was fought to oppose the control of various tyrannies from overtaking Europe. Leaders were in place who would have become part of that system. The “Huns” was the code word that symbolized the overwhelming force of totalitarianism that sought to expand into all of Europe.    Total world totalitarianism could happen.

 

wwwi halt the hun

 

“All Quiet on the Western Front” and other fine novels show us that not all ordinary Germans were “Huns” in that sense.   Patriotic, yes, but not barbarous totalitarians.

It was a most noble and crucial endeavor of Western Europe to oppose totalitarianism. The consequences of failure would be . . well,  they  would not be allowed to be discussed today.   We MUST know about this war.  We MUST read and learn . . . because totalitarianism happens.   It could have happened in Europe in 1914-1918.

One of the most informative sources of information is the World War One Memorial in Kansas City, MO.   All of you, if you live in the 48 contiguous states can go there – easily!! Practically everyone can just drive there in a couple of days!  It’s in Missouri, for goodness’ sake — right in the middle of our country.  Accessible from all around! *

wwi mem building

It is beautiful and well-done.

You can find the memorial at: https://  www  .theworldwar.org/ (Take out the spaces)     Go to “explore” in the top menu, the page called “Explore, ” and there will be many fine exhibitions to see.   They all do great honor to those who fought in WWI.

There is also an informative and concise interactive timeline.  I kept going back to this wall just to understand the exhibits better :

wwi chornology

https:// www  .theworldwar.org/explore/interactive-wwi-timeline
But I don’t want to make this a posting about the memorial, worthy as it is. I posted much about it last year when I was actually there.   (See “World War One Revisited – use search engine on this page  or:  https://thesprucetunnel.wordpress.com/2017/08/26/world-war-one-revisited/    )

I want to make a statement, and it is this:  the people who were alive just before, during, and after WWI were just like us. Same emotions, same issues, same concerns about family, education, jobs, and saving money for the future, even the same pleasures as the modern world was developing. Post-modern, actually, because the sinking of the Titanic was a major psychological shock that reverberated around the world — that was the end of the “modern” age of human expectations that shattered our trust that mankind is good and is able to create a modern utopia on earth.

wwwi scientists

We had trusted scientists  who brought us electricity and electronics,  elevators,  indoor lighting,   motorcars,  airplanes, space travel . . .  bombs of unimaginable energy . . .   and medical and food industries that  do as much harm as good.

That modern world ended.   It ended with the sinking of the Titanic and then with World War I which was, of course, the war fought “to end all wars.”    It didn’t.   And our regard for mankind was to be ever after pessimistic.    Justifiably so.

wwi bleakm world after

A bleak world after the Titanic

But pessimism and healthy doubts about ourselves need not have led to the self-loathing that we see so much of today in this post-post-modern era. That self-loathing and distrust comes from the Progressives**  of Marxist-Socialism because that ideology needs to convince us that we need a BIG State to control us; we cannot, as Americans showed the world, govern ourselves.

And when our self-confidence and our morale is weakened, we are prey to those who’d like to Rule us.

wwi name changing.jpg

Thus the path to Big Statism, to Big Brother, to an all-governing State which is another word for totalitarianism.   Big, powerful central governments do happen. Big unelected bureaucracies do form.

Totalitarianism does happen.

If we don’t trust ourselves to govern ourselves, with equality of everyone before the Law, we get the mess that American voters have in several states today, the best examples being Florida, Georgia, and Arizona.

wwi stalin vote counting

Voting officials in those states have shown us that some people are above the law.  They violate the voting laws of their own state — and because it’s expedient, they are allowed to go on with their fraudulent work.
Totalitarianism happens.

” It’s not who votes that matters, it’s who counts the votes” . . . we’ve all heard that. That’s how totalitarianism can happen.     Again:

wwi again vote counting

an apocryphal if not actual statement from Joseph Stalin

 

Honor the World War I veterans today?   Honor all our veterans who’ve fought in all our wars to maintain the freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us?

wwi thank you poster.jpg

How?

Learn what WWI was all about.  Learn how the many faces of voting fraud is dishonoring those veterans.   Take up your “rifle” . . .   your voice . . .  join the “war”  against totalitarianism and fight back!

 

www vet day rememeer poster

Our soldiers risked their lives for the fight – and many, many gave their lives.   We need only risk our time and attention.

This just might be our Eleventh Hour.

____________________________________

2 LITTLE GIRLS; 2 O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING

September 27, 2018

 

Two true stories:   Two Little Girls;  Two O’clock in the morning:

civil war stone

 

Imagine you are a child in school.   Think back to when you were a child  and remember how much you didn’t know yet, but school was a safe and friendly place to learn.

Two Little Girls

Two schoolgirls, actually;  maybe one elementary school, one middle school.   Every day when they go to school there are loud and profane demonstrators just outside their school, frightening them and their schoolmates.

Grown-Up Security people and their methods all accompanying their movements.

kav fam

The demonstrators are targeting the two little girls and their family.

Free speech and all that.    As used by the Leftist cultural-marxists ( socialists)  in  our country, financed in part  by an anti-American billionaire foreign citizen.

 

Two O’clock in the Morning

Not in our country (yet)  but in other well-known marxist countries there are the eyewitness, survivor accounts of those fearful footsteps and that dreaded Knock on the Door at Two O’clock in the Morning.     

Someone has accused you of something that the Leftists in your government do not like.   You now have to prove that you didn’t do it, but it’s hard because the accusation is vague and changing, becoming worse and worse each day, more lurid.    It’s hard because your accuser is on the side of the governing voices.

Even if you are returned home,  you – and your family – will  be under suspicion for the rest of your life.    In the case of Judge Kavanaugh, under threat of impeachment for the rest of his life.

The accusation proves his guilt.

The Innocent must prove his innocence.

 

Look again at our nation’s headstone:

civil war stone

The same political party which Carpetbagged the South,  began anti-Black, anti-Catholic, anti-foreigner movements such as the KKK, and who resisted with all their might the civil rights efforts of the 1950s,   that same political party is trying to win the upper hand by starting movements, societies, and actions against their political opponents.

race mixing

 Democrats against integration in the South

Today, their targets can be the two little girls,  anyone not of their own kind who runs for political office, anyone who gives an opinion not accepted by the Left, as promulgated by the main entertainment-news media.

They want to tear down the Rule of Law and equal protection before the law and civility in politics, because Civil War is the first step to their Revolution.

While future accusations and arrests won’t come at 2:00 A.M. necessarily,  dossiers are being compiled on each of us who have ever used or encountered the large Leftist-led institutions that we know so well by name.   Dossiers,  or databases, as they are called now.      Why are there so many lists and categories?

Everything we do creates a profile of us.

Harmless, so far.

True stories:   Two frightened little girls; two and more accusation which alone “prove”  the guilt of a man.  

When one side in a Civil War doesn’t fight back hard enough, it becomes a Revolution.

Can you imagine a movie about America’s great scientific achievement which evidenced the ingenuity, intelligence,  patriotism, and positive contributions to all mankind —  but made without reference to America and taking out one of the iconic, inspiring events, that of the planting of the U.S. flag on the moon?  

I think it’s called “First Man.”

UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM #4 – STEALING

August 31, 2018

vote ag socialism

If the throttling is done slowly enough,  over a generation or two,  it doesn’t feel too bad.

________________________________________________

In fact,  Socialism feels nice at first.   In state-sponsored Socialism,  leaders tell you everything will be more “fair”  for everyone.    But the fairness has to be achieved by breaking the Seventh Commandment:  Thou shalt not steal.

Socialism is an invitation for you to steal from others.

Wisdom from   Christianity, as recorded in the Bible:  “If anyone is not willing to work,  let him not eat.”    (II Thes.  3:10)

This has nothing to do with Christian charity which has been massive and unprecedented in world history.    That continues.     This has to do with that brilliant  disrupter of human society:   “From each according to his ability’  to each according to his need.”

The first phrase gives authority to politicians  – (who achieve power by democratic means)  – to steal from those who work – and work hard to make a good living. The second phrase gives confused and gullible people the reason to allow their government to steal from them and distribute the money to whomever will vote for them and keep this system going.

Unless we remove this system of unfair theft from productive people,  the problems that come with Socialism will prove to be Unsolvable.

Harsh word, that word “steal.”

And there are people in need.

But too many of our own citizens are living off the work of others.   And now too many citizens of foreign countries are receiving our wages too.    In a recent poll, the admittedly ill-informed,  miseducated Millennials are increasingly in favor of Socialism  — who wants to give up free stuff?!       And they don’t want to hear any other political theory:

Socialism Millennials

Once Socialism is in place it must be kept there by increasingly totalitarian force;  more and more laws and regulations,  draconian punishments,   and physical force.   Frequently, the  Socialist states eventually come down to:

THIS IS SOCIALISM 40

 

American voters who are sliding into Socialism truly believe that “it was never correctly implemented before.”   But they can do it right!      The opposition provided too many obstacles.    But they can successfully suppress the opposition.

The Program is to  Progress Forward towards World Socialism.

vote forward

“Forward Together”  !!

If people aren’t trained well enough to learn a skill to make a living,   then we must fix our system of schools.     If the economy isn’t working in favor of laborers,  then the economy must be fixed.    If crime and other moral issues cost society billions and billions of wasted dollars that never get to the people,  then moral training must be reinstated.   And so on. 

The answer to to unskilled workers, a failed economy,   to grown men who are unmotivated to provide for themselves and their families,  the answer to the high cost of crime — is not to steal from those who are doing the right thing.

For Pete’s sake!

Two things still stand in the way of Socialism’s final victory:    The Constitution of the United States (as originally intended);  and the principles of a Christian society.

These stand in the way of the Progressives,  but the Progressives don’t think they have to give up:

vote and keep calm

 

Saint Paul of the Bible spread the Gospel to us Gentiles.   Among his teachings is this:    But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.        (I Timothy 5:8)

Let us be motivated to help those in our society to achieve the dignity of productive work that can help a man support his own household!

Unless the desire for dignity of every human being and morality be restored, again, the problem remains Unsolvable.

 

 

 

THE “BIG” DEMONSTRATORS VERSUS PROTESTERS WAR

August 13, 2018

 

  Just a brief account of the latest  Fake Fail.

pravda and stalin

I first learned about Pravda, the Soviet newspaper, when we were studying Socialism in high school.     I remember our class being amazed, then amused to find out that the word Pravda meant “Truth”!    Anything but, in that tightly controlled socialist world!!

So, how about America’s news reporting today?

I was watching the reporting yesterday about Sunday’s Leftist-sponsored, so-called “Alt-Right” demonstration by white supremacists in Charlottesville.  In this whole country of over 300,000,000 people, all this group could muster was 21 — that is, Twenty-One people who self-identified as white supremacists.   That’s how many one on-the-spot reporter counted.   This  little group was a Leftist-sponsored “Unite the Right” demonstration, but they couldn’t  “unite” many Americans.
(I think one of my Girl Scout groups was larger than the amount of demonstrators who showed up! I do hope my Girl Scouts are now being a force for good in their families, in their communities, and by extension, then, a force for good in our country.)

Protesters versus the Demonstrators

On the other side of the demonstrators were several hundred of the Leftist-sponsored “Antifa” movement “protestors,”   pretending by their Fascists tactics that they are against Fascism.

(I think it was Churchill who said that the Fascists will rise again some day  but they will call themselves “anti”-Fascists.)

Several hundred radical Leftists showed up to protest just about everything.   They shouted, agitated, they were violent, rude, insulting, disrespectful.

They had taken lessons on how to inflict pain on their fellow-Americans:

antifa teaching

Antifa training

 

The Leftist news reporters went nuts over  those “United the Right” people, small though the group was, because they thought they could prove their point here: that Americans are racist!    But what the Leftist news reporting actually  did prove is that they are blind.  Or maybe biased is the better word.    Untruthful.   the entertainment-news media is untruthful about Americans.

The entertainment-news media tried so hard to make a big deal of this little gathering that didn’t really mean anything to Americans, in general. Perhaps the media are licking their wounds today, justifying their attention  and  verifying their efforts to “expose” this “controversy” that exists in a few small-minded people.

There are some good journalists out there. There are some good news reportings, and there is some actual “pravda”  out there.    Not all of it is Fake News.

Just the kind which own our newspapers and television channels.

WHY I’M VOTING TODAY

August 7, 2018

vote sign

I’ll confess.   I haven ‘t voted in very many primary elections in  my life.   I’ve never missed a presidential election and I haven’t missed many “mid-term” elections,   but the primaries?

I don’t know,    maybe my attitude was   “Why study candidates and take the time to vote when the person I voted for may not even be on the next ballot?”      And:   “Let them decide for me who is going to be on the ballot, then I’ll look at those candidates.”

Well, that last sentence is exactly what got me motivated to vote today.   I want to participate in who’s going to be voted for in November.     I ought to.

As an American citizen,  I ought to.  That’s the first reason.

The second reason is that with the  news media  (the entertainment-news media)  working harder and harder to divide Americans into two or three political/social spectrums,  whipping up violent words and actions against  those who are not “progressive”  like they are,   and, plus,   the almost total saturation of media with political views,    it has become easy to know which side of the fence you’re sitting on.

Like me.    Now I know for sure:  

_______________________________________________________________________

v charter

Written by a convicted traitor to the United States

I will vote against any candidate who promises to make the United States conform to the “sustainability”  mandates of the United Nations, or other foreign, global entities.

v soldiers

UN soldiers enforcing  anti-United States, anti-Freedom ,  anti-Religious policies around the world

 

__________________________________________________________________

v soc needs fistsSocialism needs fists and anger

I will vote against any candidate who promises to promote socialism in any form in our government;    that is,  any candidate who acts and believes that the State can solve all our problems,  without  creating policies that allow us, the people,  to pursue our own form of Happiness,   be it employment,  choice of career, what to believe,   where and how to live,  what to own,  how we raise our children, etc.         (State-mandated solutions will inevitably lead to socialist extremes of Fascism and Communism.)

vote forward

Democratic “Socialism”

_______________________________________________________________________

I will vote against any candidate who proudly states they will promote sex-identity confusion  (‘gender’ confusion, as it’s erroneously called) in our schools, our medical world,  our public face.

Then there is the problem of gross immorality promoted by those who have taken over our culture, according to the instructions and mandates of Marx, Engels,  Lenin,  Alinsky, etc.     These people knew that they must destroy morality and the family in order to weaken and confuse citizens,  who will then look to the State to fix the resulting problems.   Read their actual writings concerning this program.

v queens

Teaching our children in libraries and schools

__________________________________________________________________

 

I will vote against any Hate candidate.   And that would be any candidate who aligns himself with hatred-sponsored actions, especially that Hate focused on our president and on anyone to the right of the political aisle.      It isn’t left-right;  it isn’t Republican-Democrat;  it  is exaggerating,  lying, propagandizing,  distorting  for the purpose of hating anyone who differs politically from these people.  Remember in the 1990s when the “Politics of Personal Destruction”  was perfected?

vote and keep calm

(The politics of Hate)

 

Oh.    Yes.      It looks like I have a lot to vote for    I want to do my small part in saving my country from hatred and extremism and global dominance and  censorship and socialism and immorality.

 

Is my one little vote going to make a difference?    Not in the great scheme of things.  Philosophically,  maybe esoterically,  yes:  “all votes count.”    But down to the everyday practical level,  the answer is no, not much.   But at least I can cancel out the vote cast by a hater or a globalist or a progressive or someone who is promoting immoral behavior –  that great menace which weakens any nation.

“I regret that I have but one life  (vote)  to give to my  country.”      (young man, Nathan Hale)

Let us not vote this year to continue the attempted “Transformation of  the America”  that Nathan hale and so many others fought for.

HEADLINES – AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT

May 8, 2018

Another long absence, for which I feel I should apologize . . .  but I know,  no need. Sometimes I feel “responsible”  to write, here,  for so many reasons,  and then when things intrude, I feel I haven’t met my responsibilities.

Sigh-h-h-h-…   You’d think after ten years I’d understand this blogging thing.

What intruded this time is a very serious medical concern about my very own sister, who is so much younger than I that she is supposed to live a lot longer than I’m supposed to.
“Supposed to”  being the operative phrase there:  “Man proposes, God disposes,”  always.

wi fi jiggly    Actually,  I have a couple of personal health concerns that are “supposed to” knock me down sooner than my sister –  exacerbated this past week again by tangling with the all-pervasive RFs and EMFs that assault us.      I just cannot leave electronic gadgets alone.

So . . .  “ouch”  here at the keyboard for a while, so I can at least communicate.

HEADLINES:

In the headlines today is this information:

    TRUMP NUKES  IRAN  DEAL!

It’s from Drudge.  The Drudge Report.

It is likely that Donald The Art Of The Deal Trump can recognize a very bad deal for this country when he sees one.      Perhaps he didn’t always make good deals at first  in his long career in real estate development, investing, and the  Hollywood celebrity world and the many other numerous activities he has been involved in,  but I think his ultimate “success” indicates   a learning curve about Deal-Making that has been steeply upward.

And then he became president.    I think  several times he expressed astonishment at the mess Washington politics is in.   The mess;  I think this is what he calls the Swamp. Corrupt politicians making bad deals for our country,.

The “Iran Deal”  was so bad that the previous man who was placed in the office of our presidency,  the Global Socialist  Barack-Hussein person,  was even made to pay off Iran with a couple C-130 cargo loads of cold, hard cash — to the sum of over one billion dollars.

C-130 cargo loads of cash!   I think a C-130  could swallow up my entire house.

Why cash?  (heh  heh — you can figure that out)      You don’t pay out that much cash for good honest and lawful  reasons.

The Globalist leaders of the world made a bad deal with Iran   and  paid Iran cash money?

President Trump is not a Globalist.  he is an American president.     Here is what he said, quoted in that article:

Trump said the 2015 agreement, which included Germany, France and Britain, was a “horrible one-sided deal that should never ever have been made.” He added that the United States “will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction.”

 

Of course, socialists all over the world are decrying this decision.      Lenin’s Useful Idiots in the entertainment-news media are happy to report how awful Pres. Trump is for protecting the United States  and the safety of the entire world.

“World Leaders”   who obey our global-Socialist Rulers also must speak out against ending the Iran Nuclear Deal.

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday the U.S. is pulling out of the landmark international nuclear accord with Iran, declaring he was making the world safer but dealing a profound blow to allies and deepening his isolation on the world stage.

 

Actually,  he’s not moving us away from “the world stage,”  per se,  but he’s moving us away from Global domination;   from global rulers who would make Policy for our own sovereign nation;  from Global Socialists who tramp down on our American Constitution, freedoms and culture.

Flag don't tread

Sometimes “headlines”   are just click-bait, as we say nowadays.  They draw us in and then don’t deliver on their promise, and we’re left not getting the information we expected.

But this time, I think that Headline on Drudge was right on and  clever:

Trump Nukes . . .  something.

Trump nukes the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Which could have nuked us.

.

 

 

(Please, if you are so inclined,  pray for my sister.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT? SWEDEN?

January 10, 2018

Maybe this comes under the category of Think and Do that I’ve been writing about lately — analyze the situation truthfully, and then do something –  change things for the better, as you can,  in your own little sphere.

But first –  protect yourself?

______________________________________________

 

As a Scandinavian I keep  watch on news coming out of Sweden  and  Finland  (not linguistically Scandinavian, I know.)

map sc

Right up north at the top where the yellow, orange, and purple lands meet  is where my ancestors came from,  both sides of my family.      One of my favorite commenters is a young man named PeterSweden . . .  that’s his YouTube name;  he’s easy to find.

peter sweden

He speaks English with the accent that  my grandparents had.     Kind of nice.   Check out his gondola ride up a Norwegian mountain – breathtaking!

He comments on the current events in Sweden, as he watches his poor country self-destruct as they are overwhelmed with m o s l e m  people largely from Africa, according to the Global-socialist directives.   The   “migrant-invaders”  have taken over large portions of Swedish towns now.     There are murders,  explosions,  brutal rapes happening all over in this formerly peaceful and safe country.  The police and firemen are outnumbered, threatened, and physically harmed.

Swedish women are told to not go out at night . . . .   In the interest of good taste I won’t even repeat some of the stories.

A few Swedes are asking where their “Viking” spirit is.     Where are the Viking men to protect their daughters and sisters and mothers and wives?

But today I’m reading something very odd.  Here are the headlines:

THE SWEDISH GOVERNMENT IS WARNING CITIZENS TO BE PREPARED FOR AT LEAST A WEEK WITHOUT HELP

Why?  What’s coming?   And then follows an official statement:

“Because we have the security policy situation we have today, we say that we will make our planning at government level to face a security crisis for three months,” says Eva-Lena Fjällström, Deputy Director of the County Administrative Board in Västerbotten.

– Eftersom vi har det säkerhetspolitiska läge vi har idag så säger man att vi ska göra vår planering på myndighetsnivå för att klara en säkerhetspolitisk kris i tre månader, säger Eva-Lena Fjällström beredskapsdirektör på länsstyrelsen i Västerbotten.

“I think it’s important that you can manage yourself. Society has changed and is vulnerable and complex with many dependencies. It can easily be a disturbance so we have to manage ourselves, “says Eva-Lena Fjällström.

– Jag tycker att det är viktigt att man kan klara sig själv. Samhället har förändrats och är sårbart och komplext med många beroenden. Det kan lätt bli en störning så att vi tvingas klara oss själva, säger säger Eva-Lena Fjällström.

(From:  www . sv t. se/  etc  etc   etc)

“Three months” of disturbances?     “War,”  “crisis,”  and “civil unrest”  were mentioned.

Okay –  so, a little later in the bulletin,  it says that young people must face a changing world and they must learn how to take care of themselves without government help.  They must learn techniques for  personal survival.

They also explain that the “changing world”  has become divided sharply into left and right,  with dangerous consequences for the nation.

Yes, well –  this admonition  (warning?) is coming from a government which fosters cradle-to-grave dependencies;  that is,  Sweden is a radically socialist state which takes great amounts of taxes from the working people and distributes it around, including to foreigners who have settled there and contribute nothing to their care and upkeep, cradle-to-grave.

As Bernie Sanders would say:  “Free education for all!”

Secondly,   it is these revolutionaries/progressives/socialists  who have divided the world into “left” and “right”   which was appropriate, I guess, for the French Revolution,  but we are so used to hearing it that we don’t question anymore how severely those descriptions actually do divide a society  – irreversibly and eventually dangerously.

Now the Swedish government warns of the consequences of their own policies.   You can no longer depend  upon us . . .  and our Left-Right paradigm has produced a dangerous, sharply divided society.

From observation, from history,   Socialism always reaches its end.  Painfully.

Something big has changed in Sweden.

Is Sweden our Canary in the   Mine Shaft  Snowstorm?

 

Perhaps we have a little more time to observe what is happening there,  analyze what is happening in our country . . .  maybe  do something about it,  like put the brakes on government dependency,  of dividing  our friends into Left or Right politics,  and maybe demanding that people who cross our borders obey our laws.

 

 

 

 

TOWN&GOWN, SWORDS, AND ANTIFA

November 3, 2017

(Random thoughts from The Spruce Tunnel)

Walking through a parking lot this afternoon,  this caught my eye:

Bummper Sticker

Bumper Sticker “art” —

The bumper sticker reminded me that I live in a university town.  Well, I live out here where the professors live,  the students mostly live in the town contiguous with us, but we see a lot of them in our stores.

So . . .  cute bumper sticker, “eh” ?      E   A  R  T    H       

Take out the art, you take out the beauty.  Or maybe the other way around – take out the beauty and there is no real art.     Seeing beauty is an art,  and “poetics”  is what we humans try to do to capture the beauty,  hold it still before our eyes.

Random thoughts and pathways:

But it made me think of all the artists and artist-wannabees around here:   the artistes.  Universities attract them.    Universities and university people live right in the middle of an ordinary town.    Sometimes the two populations don’t understand each other –  with amusing or newsworthy consequences.   This university town is known for throwing couches out  windows and setting them on fire in the streets below — usually when we win a big football game.  Or when we lose.

couch

The police come,  but not until several students have had the opportunity to jump through the fire . . . .   Some people just don’t get it.

Town and Gown

But there has always been clashes and sometimes violence between the university population and the town population.   In the Middle Ages,  sometimes groups of students took their swords to school to fight with other groups of students or with groups of townspeople.     Imagine caring that much about what a professor teaches you that you want to defend the issue or destroy the issue with your sword!

(Not an easy thing to do!   Do you know how heavy a real sword is?   No women students in the 13th century at a public university.   They couldn’t wield a sword anyway.)

Twenty Towns in America  —

Riots and clashes planned for Saturday, November 4, in twenty towns and cities across America have nothing to do with intellectual issues, and not even with the intellect itself.    The International Communist-backed movement called Antifa will try to incite riots this  weekend.   It’s what they do.    It’s what they’re paid to do.   This is the weekend in 1917 that the Leftist Bolsheviks took over the major cities of Russia in a coordinated attack.   Turned Russia into the Soviet Union. Eventually 65,000,000 dead.

I don’t think that will happen this weekend, 2017.    The Antifa people are armed with slogans but not with strong intellects that could drive them through to the “end”  that they are told to shout about.

It will be interesting to see what today’s feeble-minded revolutionary-wannabees will accomplish.

Much, eventually, if there is no pushback.     But not tomorrow.
