The Patriot’s Editorial:  Distasteful Behavior: What’s in a Word or Words?

In this ‘It’s All About Me’ world we live in, people believe they have the right to say whatever comes to mind. That includes: saying/writing anything to hurt, impugn or punish someone they disagree with. After listening to it in ‘ad nauseam’ for the paste couple of years, I thought I would try to make some sense of it.

The first thing that may have come to mind when you began reading this was politics, and rightfully so. But, it goes far beyond politics. In the context of this editorial, the words I’m referring to are those intended to inflict harm and misery to the person(s) being spoken to. The days of sensibility and sensitivity, of guarding words carefully, have long past. We are left with anger, hatred and rage. A projection most of us have been subjected to.

With the introduction of Political Correctness 10-15 years ago, came the self-conceived belief we have the right to lash out at anyone we disagree with. As time moved forward, that need manifested itself to the point, people began to analyze every word and phrase spoken/written in an effort to find something to criticize or find fault with. Always looking for a fight!

Then came Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and other Social networking sites (such as Twitter). That opened up an entirely new arena for endless hatefulness. A hatefulness unparalleled in history. People spend hours trolling through posts looking at comments, hoping to find one they disagree with, so they can pounce on the person that wrote it like a three ton elephant. They make mean, hateful, often profane comments intended to inflict maximum harm to that person. We’ve all seen it and/or been the recipient of it in the past. They lash out regarding any topic, from music, to entertainers, clothing styles…………..the list is endless. In many cases, they appear to be very unhappy people.

One of the most despicable of them all: School Indoctrination. Children are being taught this behavior from pre-school all the way through college. They are being told what to believe and not to accept anything else. If they disagree, they are seriously chastised and often ostracized by their fellow students and teachers. They are taught not to listen to opposing views, thus they do not learn alternative points of view, shouting down anyone who believes differently. When exposed to it, they insist on counseling, emotional support animals, ‘safe spaces’, etc.

The most volatile category, I blame largely on the news media. Politics! We are clearly a nation divided, both politically and socially. Unfortunately, they have been very cleverly bundled into one neat little package. The ‘talking heads’ on TV, go on day after day, night after night, spewing their ideological rhetoric with both hate and venom. They are setting the example and as a result, people who would never have been rudely outspoken in the past are doing so now with great fervor and zeal. It’s one thing to have a political or social position, but it is totally unnecessary to viciously attack those that do not share their position, whether it be the media or individuals. The polarization of this country is being exacerbated by the media and it will not end anytime soon. Therefore, the vicious attacks (media/individuals) will continue, unabated.

Then there are the politicians. They more often than not, distort the truth, lie to support their ideology or view, talk down to us and generally act in a manner unbecoming of anyone in public life. They hatefully put down anyone who disagrees with them, even their voters at Town Hall meetings. They too, are waving the banner of verbal abuse and disgust! In fairness, this does not apply to all of them.

When I was growing up, I remember my mom and dad stressing over and again, ‘if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.’ To ‘bite your tongue’ instead. It seems many parents are failing to lead their children by example or teach that basic rule of human decency. This adverse behavior will not go away, if anything, it will accelerate in the years to come. The world is full of evil, why unnecessarily inflict more on ourselves?

(The views expressed above are my own. They represent a cross-section of each category, but are not intended to include 100% of the population).

The Patriot’s Editorial, Challenges of Draining the……What?

What does ‘Draining The Swamp’ actually entail? That seems to be the million dollar question simply because new revelations about the depth and magnitude of problems in Washington seem to grow exponentially by the hour. Trying to make sense of this, and figure out what swamp draining involves, has proven to be a convoluted mess and thus, difficult to sort out. Like the ecosystem, many things are going on at once and all have to be addressed and corrected before all negative ‘cause and effect’ issues are eliminated. So, you can not just fix one thing without fixing something else. The obstacles to ‘Draining the Swamp’ are (but not limited to):

The United States continues to become an even greater embarrassment and subject of ridicule by the rest of the world on a daily basis and it infuriates me. Our government is in chaos! Half of our elected politicians in Washington have gone rogue and taken up the banner of Socialism and One World Governance (New World Order). Most of the other half are rudderless without a spine and only a few are willing to fight for our Constitution, the people and the preservation of the Republic. The proof is the extremely limited amount of news that is grudgingly allowed to filter out of committees, from documents or leaked by unscrupulous politicians/professionals.

Over the past 10-12 years, the implementation of bad, inferior or unjust laws and programs have adversely impacted most every aspect of government; economics, education, environmental and military issues, ethics, financial, healthcare, social issues, etc. Each has multiple layers of problems and must be addressed cautiously and corrected, as necessary.

Like two bullies on the playground, members of Congress butt heads on everything, making it virtually impossible for meaningful corrective laws to be passed. When they finally agree on something, they’ve added numerous other unresolved pet issues (both sides) to ensure they fulfill their ideological and personal wish list. Until they decide to agree on what is good for the people and country, they will continue to disagree on about everything, even crossing a ‘T’.

The two examples immediately above are generally expected to some degree, but this next one is destructive and could ultimately destroy this country. All governments have some level of ‘corruption’ and knowing that, our founding fathers carefully crafted the Constitution to protect against it. Government corruption is the Politically Correct term for corrupt, dishonest men and women. Some are driven by financial, personal and/or political gain, but for many others it is to bolster and promote their personal ideological mission in life. Unfortunately, a combination of these is exactly what we are seeing in Congress, the FBI, the DOJ and by multiple carryover personnel from previous administrations. These people have no problem whatsoever lying, cheating, mishandling/deleting government documents, taking bribes illegally and much more.

Next, we have the media and special interest groups who, for the most part, are totally committed to deriding or destroying those they disagree with politically. They misinform and withhold the truth from millions of Americans in an effort to further support their ideology and that of their ‘Godfathers’ interests who are leading the charge in Washington. The media plays a major role in the indoctrination of the public, by convincing them through misinformation of anything and everything, except the truth. Bashing and finding fault is entertainment to them.

The ‘Swamp extends beyond the federal government. Rogue governors and state legislatures have taken it upon themselves to defy their citizens and federal law, which they appear to be doing with great enthusiasm. Problems compounded by problems, are almost impossible to correct and they know it. In short, they are off the rails and in total defiance of Federal law!

If it is even possible for any one to accomplish at this time, ‘Draining The Swamp’ takes on a new, frightening meaning. It could more accurately be defined as: ‘Draining the Cess Pool’…….. a ‘Cess Pool’ of injustice for the American people! Will this country survive, as we’ve known it?

The Patriot’s Editorial:  Our Country Is Under Siege

Today, marks one of the lowest points in this country’s history. I’m witnessing our Republic be replaced with ‘Absolutism’, our Congress reduced to a mere ravel and our Constitution systematically shredded. To many, a government shutdown doesn’t mean much. Life will go on as usual and they will experience little (if any) ill-affect by it. Much as was the case during the obama years. But for others and for various reasons, they will be impacted deeply. Why does it have to be this way and what good can be gained by it for us as individuals, a people and nation?

Last night, the U.S. Senate took America hostage and their ransom demand was to legalize all illegal aliens that broke our federal laws to enter this country and to ensure our borders are never ever secured. Those illegals are receiving tens of billions of dollars to live here (annually). Where did that money come from and who authorized it? It comes from hardworking American citizens by way of their tax dollars and the Congress who is holding us hostage authorized and funded it. What the government will not tell you is that if all illegals were legalized tomorrow, they would still receive taxpayer funding. Without a secure border and border enforcement, they will continue to come here illegally and in 5-10 years, we will go through this all over again…….most likely, with the same result!

Can the very ‘fabric’ of this country continue to withstand this degree of intense pressure and abuse? When it fully begins to shred, there will be nothing recognizable left.

I faithfully served this country for 24 years (United States Air Force) and never once asked ‘why me’ when I got the call to leave my family to go into harms way to do the tough task. To protect and defend was both an honor and a personal duty. For those of you that served or had a close family member or friend that did, you understand. For those not in that category, it would be difficult for you to ever understand.

God, family and country! All tied together with my personal honor and integrity. It’s the only way I know. I hope it’s enough!

The Patriot’s Editorial: Is The ‘Drain The Swamp’ Campaign Working?

Much has been said and written about ‘Making America Great Again’ and ‘Draining The Swamp’! Like many of you, I assumed President Trump’s initiative would be limited to eliminating over-reach regulations, passing new laws and changing mindsets. Little did anyone realize the impact those efforts would have peripherally after just one year. The unforeseen consequences we are beginning to witness are surprising a lot of people.

On a near weekly basis, both House and Senate Congressional members are announcing their intent ‘not’ to run for office at the end of their terms or simply announce their immediate retirement. The #MeToo crowd took its toll on members of Congress in edition to wreaking havoc on Hollywood and the media by exposing various levels of sexual misbehavior. But they weren’t limited to just Washington, DC. All across the country, state and local legislators are being exposed for their perversive behavior. I suspect more of them will be called out in the weeks and months ahead. As they say: “stay tuned”!

Additionally, we are seeing much more subtle departure announcements, but the explanations and reasons given are somewhere between obscure to reasonably plausible. Some simply say they are retiring to return to civilian life, others say they have other pursuits, while others just say they are not going to run for re-election. Nevertheless, members of both parties are bailing out and leaving their post. As I watch this unfold, it is apparent some of the longtime old guard (swampers) are leaving jobs they turned into decades long political careers. They are draining the swamp themselves!

No one can predict the future and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to ‘Draining The Swamp’ and the affects it will have. I seriously doubt even President Trump saw this coming. I continue to ask myself why those longstanding members of Congress have decided to retire at this point in time, especially when it looked like they would die in their jobs. Is it the pressure to clean up their personal behavior, because they may finally be held to a higher standard by their constituents or they just got tired and are simply quitting. Although a curious conundrum, the fact it is happening can’t be bad for the American people. Just wondering who will be next!

Brazile and the Dems Know They Must Rid Themselves of the Clintons

CALLER: I’ve got the question here. Do you think the Democrats are going to run Joe Biden, that’s what this stuff with Donna Brazile’s all about with the book and —
RUSH: No, I actually don’t. In fact, let’s go to sound bites number 1 and 2. I touched on this yesterday. Biden I think may want to, but I don’t think that’s who the Democrats are gonna choose. I tell you what. I touched on this yesterday, because this Brazile book, there’s too much of it now. As I said yesterday, I stumbled into this observation a couple of days ago. There’s just too much of this.

A Rogues Gallery of Right-Hegelians – Foundation for Economic Education – Working for a free and prosperous world

Read

major project of mine for the last three years has been to trace the origin and development of the ideas that led to today’s alt-right activists. They have emerged on the political scene suddenly and with impressive ferocity. Some people just assume that they represent nothing but a melange of hate and racism.

This is too simple. Even the most dumbed-down political movement is built by slaves of defunct philosophers. But which ones? And does the worldview cohere to the point that we can anticipate the patterns and policies of this group?

The Best Speech by President Trump So Far

Donald Trump gave the best speech of his Presidency to the United Nation. He was bold and American — giving real clarity to what he meant by an “America First” speech. He did not mince words and called out rogue nations. But he also noted that he had no intention of imposing the American system on other nations. His speech was a speech on what he sees as realism and getting away from an idealized American foreign policy. His was a speech that will resonate beyond his base.

Because Sean Spicer Is a Far More Decent Person Than Them | The Resurgent

Hollywood and a lot of reporters are outraged — OUTRAGED I TELL YOU — that Stephen Colbert would dare “normalize” or “rehabilitate” Sean Spicer. “Why?” they are asking. Some Hollywood stars who support the ability to rip up children and suck their brains out had the audacity to call Spicer evil.

So why do it?

Stop Being a Butthole Wife

Stop being a butthole wife.  No, I’m serious.  End it.

Let’s start with the laundry angst.  I get it, the guy can’t find the hamper.  It’s maddening.  It’s insanity.  Why, why, must he leave piles of clothes scattered, the same way that the toddler does, right?  I mean, grow up and help out around here, man.  There is no laundry fairy.

What if that pile of laundry is a gift in disguise from a God you can’t (yet) see?  Don’t roll your eyes, hear me out on this one.

I was a butthole wife.  Until my husband died.

The day my husband left earth for heaven, all of my marriage problems vanished.  There was no one to fuss at, negotiate with, or play possum at bedtime (you know, when you pretend you’re asleep to bypass sex).

How Anti-White Rhetoric Is Fueling White Nationalism

How Anti-White Rhetoric Is Fueling White Nationalism

I opened Twitter recently and saw 20+ notifications. Most of the time that means the new generation of white nationalist Twitter trolls are filling my feed with racist and anti-Semitic cartoons. It was the trolls, but this was different. They were celebrating my use of the word “anti-white” in a tweet. They saw it as a victory that a “mainstream conservative” was using this term that for so long has been their calling card.     read

The Raping of America: Mile Markers on the Road to Fascism

The Raping of America: Mile Markers on the Road to Fascism

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”—Martin Luther King Jr.

There’s an ill will blowing across the country. The economy is tanking. The people are directionless, and politics providesno answer. And like former regimes, the militarized police have stepped up to provide a façade of law and order manifested by an overt violence against the citizenry.

Despite the revelations of the past several years, nothing has changed to push back against the American police state. Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—continue to be choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

Jim DeMint: Why I Met With Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

Jim DeMint: Why I Met With Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

This election season has made many Americans even more cynical about our democratic system of government. There is clearly political upheaval underway in America and around the world. This massive disturbance of the status quo has been fueled in large part by more people getting better, faster information from many sources on the internet.  Previously, news on political debates was controlled by a few powerful newspapers or broadcast television. The New York Times, which used to set the daily agenda for national media coverage, had the motto “all the news that’s fit to print.”  But who decided what was “fit” for the public to know?  read

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Why Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils Is a Waste of Your Vote

Although my personal political philosophy is libertarian, like most people, over the years I have surrendered to the binary choice our two-party system gives us when casting my vote in presidential elections. I almost always find myself settling for a “lesser of two evils,” but the “evil” is not so great as to prevent me from rationalizing what amounts to, by my vote, an endorsement or affirmation of the candidate.  Because at least rhetorically, the Republican party candidate promises a greater commitment to limited, constitutional government, entitlement reform, tackling the national debt, and a belief in the benefits of free trade, I have voted for the Republican candidate for president ever since Ronald Reagan. The Republicans repeatedly disappoint on matters of foreign policy, seeing the US as world policeman. But the Democrats fare little better on foreign policy—sometimes even worse. So foreign policy as a vote-determining factor between the two major parties tended to be a wash for me. I often profoundly disagree with the Republicans on many of the “culture war” and so-called social issues, but I have had confidence that our Constitution and judiciary will defend against any overreach by Republicans in that area.  read

What is he REALLY after?

What is he REALLY after?

Just like Obama….if we had listened to what he said, instead of what we wanted him to say, we would have been able to know some of what was coming. We’re about to make the same mistake. All we are showing is that its not just Democrats, not just any segment of our society, but that all of us are easily swayed by a fine sounding argument. We have lost our ability to discern.

This article was written before New Hampshire. We knew in plenty of time. Yet, we listened to other things that we believe he means…but does the words he use mean the same as they do when we hear them?

But…he will make America Great again. Not without God he cant.
