Cruzing the Sea of Absurdity

ted-cruz-gage-skidmore-flickr-2-800x430

Following is quotation of a letter I wrote to the good Mr. Cruz:

Well good old Ted Cruz turns out to be just another typical professional politician… Joining hands with the demonrats and the other GOP example of absurdity Rubio, to blame Donald trump for the absurdity and illegal behavior of Chicago liberals. I was already skeptical of Cruz thanks to the universal traitorism revealed by the GOP after the recent victories in DC which were followed by the republicrats joining hands to support the oBama rather than keeping their promises to the voters.

I really felt like Cruz was of a different sort, but obviously such is not the case. My support and whatever influence I can generate will henceforth be in Donald Trump’s behalf.

The GOP used to be the wall behind which the American tradition of freedom/responsibility took refuge, but now the democratic (politic of mediocrity ~Socrates) infection has spread from the demonrats and infected the GOP. This is a tremendous disappointment.

It is most unfortunate that politics has become a profession. Cruz and the rest are the executive welfare class. Enjoying the perks of lifetime wages, healthcare and and a host of other benefits at the cost of the voters whose pocketbooks they are milking.

Trump will have his work cut out for him, getting past both the demonrats and the Republicrat liars… god forgive us if we are unable to wrest control from the political professionals and return it to the people.

What the Trump Is Going On???

trump4n-1-web

When Trump took the stage as a Republican desiring the nomination for Presidency, I was intrigued. What Trump is was a mystery. What shows is showmanship, but why does one of the most successful independent businessmen this world has ever seen want to take on the Presidency of the USA? In Trump’s case, the only consideration is personal. What really is in this thing for the Trump? For me, the skepticism level was very high. Some sort of showboating going on here… But then…

Trump takes the stage literally and effectively during the Republican presidential debates and behaved in ways quite atypical of the typical politician. Saying things one would expect to destroy his possibilities. Trump says things which the media and the analysts interpret as racist or offensive, but his popularity soars. Something is going on here, and it damn sure is different. My intrigue evolved into a serious curiosity… because…

This country, founded on the principles of independence, freedom and the exercise of responsibility, is crumbling into a cesspool of whining, crying, “it’s not faaaiiiirrrrrr” liberalism. Here comes a gentleman who embodies many of the very principles the whiners are whining about. He’s fabulously… no, ridiculously wealthy. He’s a capitalist. He says what he wants to say without any apparent regard for hurt feelings. He has a bizarre hairdo. He has a sense of humor. Most importantly, when he runs into a problem, he conquers it… but…

Where does one go to find out who Donald Trump really is? Turns out that in the case of Donald Trump the record is clear and the path is easy to follow. Unlike our current pRESIDENT, who we know very little about. We don’t don’t even know for sure if he’s an American or even if his wife is a woman. Donald Trump is anything but, transparent. He has a clear and easy to follow record of accomplishment. What we don’t find in the investigation, is a history of dishonesty. His business relationships and his relationship with those he employs is positive and productive… however…

Donald Trump is also an author, and as an author myself, I can testify the the truth of a soul can be seen in his writing. So I’ve been reading, and yes I’m impressed. Here’s my recommendation for those who would like to look inside the head of a multi-billionaire striving for… for… well…

Read the book! “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again” It resonates with a rational that is impossible to deny. It brings to my mind remembrance of the words of some of the political greats of the past, John Locke, or Thomas Paine…

Our freedom was won not by the lowly or the common, but by highly successful businessmen who cared more for independence and freedom than they cared for their own wealth and security…

Obviously Donald Trump has a towering sense of self importance. What goal could afford a more guaranteed heroic move into the history books than rescuing the mighty magnificence of America from the hands of liberal “fairness and equality” and professional politics which has brought us to our knees? And what quarterback would have a better chance of crossing the goal line?

Pull up your damn britches and READ THE BOOK!!

Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction

A.S.S. Destruction

I must preface this  with my intent, which is to promote what may be the most remarkable piece of literature regarding the relativity between politics and humanitarian values that I have ever read, “Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction,” by Alfonzo Rachel. A full painting will require some lead-in. So bear with me. I really will get to the point which goes far beyond religion, eventually.

One ever present aspect of human nature is the curiosity about our own eternal (or not) nature. Is there a God? Of course! (not)! Naturally I share this universal curiosity and have taken approaches ranging from absolute atheism all the way through the gamut to  the committed following of organized religion (Mormon). None of this seemed satisfactory, comforting, nor truly fulfilling. Thus none stuck.

Agnosticism is certainly the easiest route, being quite similar to the political belief referred to as, “independent.” It requires very little in the form of commitment and is the “faith” I have adhered to throughout most of my life.

Atheism can be logically compared to political anarchy, which is one of it’s lures. People are at least tempted to believe they are individually capable and responsible and that they don’t need to depend upon “fairy tales,” “magicians,” nor Gods. Most of us deny it, but there is an element of narcissism that naturally resides within us which makes this type of independence look appealing. This is one of the reasons I took a stab at atheism. I lost interest as my realization grew that atheism leaves us with true, non-self centered reason for nothing. I do like to think of myself as reasoned, yet I also confess to a propensity towards the dark side. It is largely because of my lingering fear of eternal damnation that certain individuals remain alive today whom I believed the world would be better off without.

The study of Christianity, particularly the pursuit made outside the reigns of any particular religious organization (Catholic, Protestant, Mormon etc.), the aspect of Christianity which claims to be the actual teaching of Jesus Christ (the red letters, as it were), ignoring the human manipulations of his doctrines, leads the student to some of the most sound and loving humanitarianism imaginable. Although I am far removed from the typical view society has as to what a Christian typically is, I am never the less sold on the fact that it presents us with a philosophy that guarantees such a broad range of freedom/responsibility empowering beliefs that no political philosophy can compare. Even if there actually were no Jesus Christ (that there was is historically provable), or if the man were nothing but a magnificently talented philosopher (which may be the case), the result of following his teachings leads to true freedom, the truest respect of humanity, AND an appreciation for our own existence, that no secular philosophy can approach.

It is easy to argue against torturing and burning witches, cutting the tongues out of “blasphemers,” the idea of multiple wives, or religious socialism. However none of these perversions can be traced directly to the words of Jesus. These were manipulations for personal gain made by humans holding up their own interpretations or even their own generation of words they attributed to Jesus. The ultimate core of true Christianity boils down to “My command is this: Love one another the way I have loved you.” The simple fact of the matter is if humanity actually followed this teaching alone, every one of the legal and political problems we face would fade back into the Hell holes from whence they came.

The flip side of this coin is the fact that humanity is distantly removed from the nature of Christ. Thus it is quite unlikely that we can be successful in imitating his behavior. Our best hope is to recognize it and hold it up as motivation for our higher intentions. This, beautifully, is the point of Christianity. It is a set of logical, reasonable, and purely humanitarian ground rules to strive for. Failure is certain but the attempt will naturally build good principle and strengthen morality in the heart and soul of the person who sincerely makes the attempt. Thus the failure becomes a success.

One of the greatest disappointments with atheism for me was the atheist arguments for morality. There is no doubt that atheists are perfectly capable of completely moral behavior, and atheists who do live morally, (there are many) can logically be seen as actually having a more personal form of morality than those who pursue moral behavior in order to earn a mansion in heaven, 70 virgins, 30 wives in heaven, eternal existence, or whatever payoff is being played/prayed for. However the ultimate question still remains. Why be honest? Why be fair? Why help the weak? The unfortunate answer which the atheist will employ volumes of words to present, boils down nicely and cleanly to one, “because.”

Now, down to the nitty gritty:

According to Plato, Socrates referred to democracy as the “politic of mediocrity.” Rachel’s book is a brilliantly written, shoot from the hip look at historically verifiable facts about the development of democracy in our American republic. He Illuminates beautifully all of its brilliant absurdity, and backs up Socrates’ observation made almost 2500 years ago with indubitable evidence. He ties it all together beautifully with the relativity between proper principle, morality, freedom, responsibility and Christianity. All of which are rapidly being lost in America.

Rachel begins with the “so called party switch,” where he illuminates the true roots of racism in America, revealing startling, verifiable truths about slavery, the Jim Crow laws, the Dred Scott decision, the KKK, the truest opposition to Martin Luther King, AND the truest roots of the growth of civil liberties in America.

From here Rachel moves on to one of the most coherent descriptions of the difference between liberalism and conservatism, which alone makes the book a masterpiece. He states quite plainly and simply, something I’ve been trying to relate in my writing for well over a decade.

He moves into the association between religious thinking and effective politic. “Facts have little effect on the opposition because everyone has an interest in confirming what they already believe,” the very foundation of my own philosophical interpretation of one of the core aspects of human nature, egoteneoism. He illuminates the difference between conserving the freedom to do for yourself, and the political hunger for voters’ dependency. The difference between voting for what’s popular and voting for what’s “right.” It is this portion of his book which will cause the most consternation for the liberal thinker, but careful consideration of its premise reveals a beautiful philosophical basis.

Next he attacks another liberal bogeyman, capitalism. By clearly describing what it is and the power that it implies, “capitalism is freedom of money.” The innate differences between capitalism, socialism, and fascism. He examines modern absurdities such as “minimum wage,” “unionization” (the stepping stone to communism), pulling into focus the “render unto Ceasar” statement, so often used to Biblically support taxation.

State run healthcare, abortion, Constitutional protection, homosexuality (including a very illustrative historical look at the real physical dangers which inspired the the anti-gay mentality which still exists. (Rachel presents a very logical case in justification for including homosexuals in the military) Immigration, back to racism “Democrats still have you on the plantation. They farm blacks for votes like ballot cattle.” Which brings to my mind a quote of L.B.J., “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for the next 200 years.” Environmentalism, “Our government currently makes laws respecting the religious establishment of environmentalism” (back again to egoteneoism).

Rachel takes a look at libertarianism, which was somewhat uncomfortable to me since I have often referred to myself as libertarian. “A Libertarian is typically just a liberal that doesn’t have a love/hate relationship with capitalism and the free market.” He presents a case which is now a new bug under my saddle.

One of the most important points Rachel makes is in reference to the American media, who I see as the biggest enemy the American tradition of freedom/responsibility has ever faced. “People vote democratic, not because of principle, but because of feelings swayed by the media.” There is a rising surge of resistance to the media lies, based on the growing recognition that it is going on. Tis one of the most important aspects of Donald Trump’s popularity, his refusal to kowtow to the whims of the liberal American media.

Bottom line… buy this book, read it, buy copies for your friends, give it out as Valentines, donate copies to charity, slide copies under your liberal professor’s doors, read it to your children at bedtime. Thank you Alfonzo Rachel (http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=mpg&mpid=84 ) for a true breath of fresh air and a rekindling of hope!

Trump?

President Trump

 

Yes, I think so.

Trump’s shot at the Republican presidential nomination was intriguing, right out of the gate. The initial reaction to it was skepticism. “What’s this rich son of a bitch up to?” A valid question indeed! What IS this rich son of a bitch up to? What is in this thing for him? A truly objective analysis of new philosophies or ideas is made quite difficult by one of the basic self-defense aspect of human nature, which is a drive to maintain ones currently chosen beliefs. Much of the job of selling, be it ideas or dishwashers is, as Tump plainly recognizes, playing to people fantasies. Your reality is in your head, not mine. And it is real.

For me at first, Trump’s strongest appeal was his disdain for the main stream propagandia. Which spouts propaganda which causes typical Republican politicians to tremble in their boots. Rather than bowing and scraping and apologizing when faced with media propagandizing. Trump actually makes fun of them. Gives them the bird as it were, AND he profits in popularity and media coverage as well. For me this turned intrigue into a very positive fascination. Donald Trump rules the media. But still the wonder remains, who is he and what is he really after?

He obviously knows how to harvest benefits from his enemy. Donald Trump is getting more coverage from the propagandistic main-stream media than even their glorious angel, Hillary Clinton. Far more coverage than any of the Republicans he’s competing with. This not only benefits Trump, it exemplifies the wisdom of the man. However it comes at a price. The media does not want Donald Trump to win. The GOP (republicrats) are scared to dribbling shudders by Donald Trump, so getting his message out there in an effective way requires a certain amount of posturing, which he accomplishes brilliantly. Boisterous, cutting, offensive self importance opens the gate and Donald Trump triumphantly marches into America’s television, car radio, iPhone, newspaper, magazines (even the most radically propagandistic, i.e. NYT) for FREE! He plays the media fiddle so magnificently that their attempt to sell the scare reveals instead not only his core message, but a level of strategy which may be Trump’s greatest asset.

So… who is he really? What actually is at the core of his motivation? What is this rich son of a bitch actually up to? You’re not going to get at the heart of it via the media. Their ultimate motivation is to see him lose, so there will be no detailed and accurate analysis of what is going on. Getting at the truth is up to you. Unfortunately the disease of laziness and knee jerkism has reached a point which places most Americans at the mercy of whim. Trump realizes this and plays to it, “I play to people’s fantasies. . .­­ It’s an innocent form of exaggeration, and a very effective form of promotion…Perception is reality,” but the truth is out there to be seen by anyone who has the drive to actually investigate. There is undeniable evidence is in Trump’s own background. If one steps back from the mainstream circus side show into history and the actual words of the man, who unlike our current pRESIDENT, actually is transparent. You can see his school records, his professional achievements, ANY aspect of his history is open for all to see.

At age 13 Trump began attending the New York Military Academy, where he played varsity football, soccer, and was captain of the varsity baseball team. “Honesty and straightforwardness was the rule of law” at the academy. It got ingrained in us that you don’t lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do . . . You just say the way it is,” Ted Levine, roommate. “He was cut from a different cloth, and it was quite obvious. He was more aloof. More focused than we were . . . We were wondering what we wanted to do when we grow up. He was already there.” ~Ted Pollard.

What you don’t find in Trump’s history is drugs, drinking, crime, nor even indecision. Trump was and is, driven. A man of vast accomplishment who attacks challenges and does so successfully. He turns obstacles into stepping stones and wins.

What’s in his head? He’s written 15 books, most of them before showing any sign of political ambition, and the man can truly be seen in their pages. One of the most important of these books, relative to Trump’s political goals is, “Crippled America.” To anyone interested in gaining a true perspective on Trump’s motivations, here they are. READ! Pay attention, turn off your presuppositions and listen for truth. It comes through quite plainly if you take down the shields.

Thanksgiving Truth

History_BYDK_Thanksgiving_SF_still_624x352

Thanksgiving (as we learn of it in school):

The pilgrims simply weren’t capable of surviving in the new world on their own. Fortunately for them, the Native Americans were there to feed them and take care of them and teach them what they needed to know in order to survive. It is to them we owe the survival of the pilgrims and the eventual foundation of our country. This all began from a harvest celebration in which the pilgrims sat down with the Native Americans. Not long after this the pilgrims began stealing and murdering and wiping the Native Americans out.

Thanksgiving (as it was):

William Bradford with 40 pilgrims seeking to escape religious persecution had set out, not on an adventure, but on a mission. Theirs was a Biblical foundation, The Bible having both inspired their flight and established the ground floor of their contract. Theirs was exemplary  of the value of “faith.” There was no knowledge that we will succeed, but there also was no doubt.

Upon their arrival they were met with nothing but wilderness. No hotels, no Wallmarts, no family, friends, no welcoming committee. During the first winter half of them perished. When Spring arrived Indians did teach them a great deal but it was not this that grounded our Thanksgiving celebration.

The pilgrims had previously entered into contracts with sponsors in London which required everything grown, trapped, harvested, manufactured or otherwise produced to go into a common store. Each member of the community had one share. This included all of the land and the houses. This was one of histories marvelous examples of socialism. Nobody owned anything and all product was equally distributed amongst all. The very model of the socialist fantasy we are marching toward in America today.

What they soon learned was the weaknesses of the socialist philosophy which rears it ugly head every time it’s tried. The root of its weakness being lack of motivation, which even Godly beliefs and moralistic intentions do not overcome.

William Bradford wrote:

The experience that we had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years…that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing — as if they were wiser than God. For this community was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense, that was thought injustice.

Their solution to this obstacle evolved into the power behind the greatest economy this planet has ever seen. Each family was granted its own piece of land and the responsibility of working, harvesting and marketing the production. Keep what you need and sell the rest and with the money you earn you can buy the best. This worked magnificently, leading to trading posts being set up in which exchanges could be made not only amongst the pilgrims, but with the Indians as well. They were able to pay off their contracted debt with London sponsors. Word spread in England and through Europe and the Great Puritan Migration began.

The first Thanksgiving was indeed a get together between the Pilgrims and the Indians which whom they were trading. It was a mutually beneficial relationship which had resulted from the good will of both sides and shines beautifully from the two-sided coin the Pilgrims thanked God for at the first Thanksgiving. Freedom/Responsibility.

Propaganda, Move to the Right!

thanksgiving_cartoon1

We are seeing an unexpected result of the importation of “refugees.” Here we are, celebrating Thanksgiving. A celebration America doesn’t really understand. Having been taught lies through our education years, most American’s haven’t a clue as to the true meaning of the celebration and what it represents. Topping this off is the media attack Thanksgiving takes every year.

This year we are seeing a very different presentation. From the very center of the main stream propagandia outlets, The New York Times, Huffington Huffington Post, The Washington Post et al. we are getting comparisons between the pilgrims we recognize on Thanksgiving and the Syrian refugees which our administration is trooping into our country right now. We are seeing the propagandia come closer to truth about the humanity and nobility of the pilgrims than we’ve ever seen before.

The stories we typically see at Thanksgiving time about how the religious and fiendish American founders raped a virgin land, stealing from and murdering its caring, kind, and loving peoples who wanted nothing more than to be friendly and supportive, are hardly suitable tales for making a comparison intended illuminate the value and honor of accepting unvetted, healthy male members of the religion of ‘convert or destroy’ (refugees), struggling to escape the same sort of repression as did our pilgrims.

Controversy?

Image

America is under an adMINISTRATION which is currently under investigation by the Senate, the House, the FBI and numerous private and foreign organizations. Obama is currently under more scrutiny than any previous administration. 

The IRS targets Obama’s enemies, Benghazi, Watching the AP, Rosengate, Holder perjury, Fast and Furious, Pigford scandal, GSA, violation of the Hatch Act, Solyndra, Lisa Jackson, Black Panther voter intimidation, War without Congressional approval, Biden’s incredible stupidity, bypassing Congress in various ways, sexual assaults on foreign nationals hired as embassy guards, State department employment of prostitutes while on official trips, nepotism has become an open and widespread practice at the Department of Energy, state dinner security breaches, judicial appointment controversies, drone attacks, Mayward District murders, Guantanimo Bay, Memogate, PRISM, and the list goes on and on… 

Since the American media has evolved into a statist propaganda mill, none of the stories are clearly and fully told. The only certainty seen in the most corrupt administration in history, yes even more corrupt than Bill Clinton which is not an easy task, is that nothing will come of it. Barrack Hussein Obama will not be impeached. The statist empire (left AND right) combined with the ironic reverse racism which has done more damage to black America than the KKK, the American Nazi Party and the League of the South combined, provide the insurance that America’s first black President can do no wrong. In fact, as anyone who pays even the most minimal attention to the media reporting of all the above controversies and more, Barrack Hussein Obama is barely aware of their existence, and he hasn’t the foggiest notion as to how any of them came to be. Just like Clinton, he learns of them only after having read about them in the paper. This level of ignorance alone should be cause for impeachment.

Thank You Margaret Thatcher!

Image

One of the greatest heroes of independence, freedom and responsibility passed this morning. She was fought at the time and is increasingly viewed as a “radical” extremist today. And this she was, in the world of socialism, statism and those paving the road toward Marxist communism. She appeared at a time in Great Britain which was even further advanced on the trail towards socialism than we are in the US today. As the US is fast in the process of the government takeover of one of the largest segments in American business, the medical industry, we can examine an economy  under the effect of privatization. Margaret Thatcher said, “privatization  shrinks the power of the state and free enterprise enlarges the power of the people… we understood that a system of free enterprise has a universal truth at its heart: to create a genuine market in a state you have to take the state out of the market.” We can actually examine the effect of the very principle so hated today, in all its successful glory. Although she was far from being a “feminist” in the way we see them today, she literally broke ground in the field of thwarting the logic of sexual discrimination which had been almost constant since the dawn of humanity.

Margaret Thatcher appeared during the “Winter of Discontent” in the UK, where the economy was drowning in an ocean of socialism. The government accounted for over 30% of the workforce. The government red tape, just like in the US today, was strangling the free enterprise that remained. Thatcher privatized telecommunications, railroads, steel and more, and the course of UK economy immediately took a new and much more positive direction. Her wisdom in stating, “The lesson of the economic history of Europe in the 70’s and 80’s is that central planning and detailed control do not work and that personal endeavour and initiative do. That a State-controlled economy is a recipe for low growth and that free enterprise within a framework of law brings better results…” Can scarcely be denied, yet America is flocking down that very path and following a leader who is the diametric opposition of Thatcher’s wisdom and is rapidly destroying the independence and freedom of us all.

“We should back the workers, not the shirkers.”

“When you hold back the successful, you penalize those who need help.”

“There is no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.”

“To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukemia with leeches.”

“What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner ‘I stand for consensus’?”

“When all the objectives of government include the achievement of equality – other than equality before the law – that government poses a threat to liberty.”

“In the Conservative Party we have no truck with outmoded Marxist doctrine about class warfare. For us it is not who you are, who your family is or where you come from that matters, but what you are and what you can do for your country that counts.”

“During my lifetime most of the problems the world has faced have come, in one fashion or other, from mainland Europe, and the solutions from outside it.”

An interesting aside; listening to the news reports today, each one refers to her greatness, but not a one I’ve heard from the “main-stream” has neglected to point out something quite negative “many believe she kicked the poor into the street,” for example. It’s damn hard for statists to show her the respect she deserves.

The Horrifying Face of a Felon!

Image

Yes indeedy! Two FELONY counts of possessing a FIREARM. The Department of Juvenile Justice of North Carolina, in a letter to the child’s parents, informed them that they considered the child’s crime to be a “violent felony.” Oh the horror of it all! The child was being punished for accidentally hitting a passing car. His BB gun… yes BB GUN, was taken away and community service at a local church to pay the $350 to repair the chip. (Hard for me to believe that a bb gun could cause any detectable damage in an automobile.) But that was not enough. The vile little mongrel must be taught a lesson, so now he faces the prospect of a year on probation, hundreds of hours of community service and a criminal record. Oh the horror of it! Next we’ll learn the violent little wretch is a Christian! Hell, what if he turns out to be a heterosexual? What is this world coming to?

There is actually a horror here. The horror is that this is a true story.
