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?

Chicago’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has declared the city a “Trump-free zone,” announcing on late night television that he intends to prevent the president from even stepping foot within the city’s boundaries.  Speaking to Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the mayor said that he’s even given the city a new title. “Our motto: A city he’ll never sleep in. We don’t want him,” Emanuel said.  “Look, Donald Trump is driving forward looking through the rearview mirror, and I’m not going that way because I want my city going that way and I want it to be a Trump-free zone,” he continued.

More Clinton ties on Mueller team: One deputy attended Clinton party, another rep’d top aide

Read

More Clinton connections have emerged for members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team, amid growing Republican complaints about potential bias inside the office created to lead an independent probe.

On Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Mueller investigator Andrew Weissmann, a former partner at WilmerHale, attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party last November at the Javits Center in New York City. Fox News reported earlier this week that Weissmann in January also praised outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates, after she was fired for refusing to defend President Trump’s travel ban.

GOP Rep. Writing Bill To Prevent Lawmakers From Pulling a “John Conyers”

Read

Following reports of Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) using tax dollars to settle sexual harassment claims, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is crafting legislation that would unseal all sex settlement records and ban the use of tax dollars to pay the claims.

“Settlements paid with tax dollars should not be kept secret. Members of Congress cannot be allowed to use the American people’s money as a personal slushfund to cover wrongdoing. I’m working on legislation to unseal settlement records, bar use of tax dollars to pay claims against members & staff, prohibit members from using office budgets to camouflage payments (a Conyers rule) & require reimbursement of the taxpayer,” tweeted DeSantis on Wednesday.

Kirsten Gillibrand’s Moment Has Arrived

Read

The Washington sky was darkening outside her window, and Kirsten Gillibrand slumped down in her chair. It had been a long day. In the morning, the New York senator hosted a news conference with a mother whose twin 6-year-old daughters had been allegedly raped by their father’s military commander. As she walked off the podium, she’d been confronted by questions about her colleague Al Franken’s reported history of groping women, news that broke for the first time that morning. “Deeply concerning,” she replied, adding that she believed the story of his accusers. “I expect to hear more from Senator Franken.” And she had just come from a podcast interview with the New York Times in which she’d blown through the Democratic code of silence on Clinton misdeeds by saying that yes, if Bill Clinton were president now, he would have to resign after something like the Monica Lewinsky affair.

NEWS – Hillary Just Slapped With A Wrongful Death Lawsuit — And Clinton Thought It Would Never Happen To Her

Read

The loss of American lives at the embassy in Benghazi, Libya, was a terrible tragedy that few believe could not have been avoided, if only those responsible for issuing orders to send readily available help had done so when help was requested.  We’ve all heard about the claims from special operations SEAL teams that wanted to go help the ambassador, and the soldiers acting as his bodyguards were ordered to “stand down” by persons unknown in the Obama administration. Believe me, we all have our suspicions about who the unknown person or persons might be.

Who sets up a slush fund to pay off sexual harassers?

Politicians, that’s who. Congress set up this fund knowing how they behave. What’s worse is they have the gall to use TAXPAYER MONEY to fund their sexual improprieties.

Roy Moore’s Accusers Busted!

Read

Judge Roy Moore’s good name has been dragged through the mud over the last few weeks and we have been following it every step of the way. Now, new details are emerging that cast some serious doubt on the allegations made against him.

In the midst of sexual abuse allegations being raised against dozens of leftists, it seems the Washington Post thought they could ride this wave and try to take down one of the country’s most conservative and God-fearing politicians.

Honesty, Integrity, And Judge Roy Moore

The first principle of the Constitution Party states “We are committed to restoring honesty, integrity, and accountability to government”. Embodied in that statement are goals, commitments, and policies that will change how our government operates and the character of those that serve as government officials. It incorporates our commitment to having candidates and government officials that are honorable men and women who will be held accountable for their integrity, conduct, and actions.

Rep John Conyers Lawyer Issues ‘Back Off’ Or Else Warning

Through his lawyers, Democrat House Representative John Conyers has issued a threat to Congress doing any further investigating. It is obvious that Mr. Conyers and his lawyer do not want the Hose to do an ethics investigation. The lawyers’s statement seems to threaten that many members of Congress will be exposed to charges if this proceeds.

What kind of rational defense of behavior is that? It reads like a leave me alone or I will tell all I know threat. I say that if there are many more members of Congress behaving like this, Go Ahead, Make My Day. It sounds like we need a good House cleaning to go along with draining the swamp. This is an astounding statement to just read.

BREAKING SCANDAL: Dem Rep. John Conyers Accused of Sexual Harassment – Flew Women Into DC For Sex Romps

The “next wave,” is coming, says Swan.

Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a ‘creep list’ of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

It was revealed Monday evening that one Congressman who settled a harassment suit in 2015 was Democrat Rep John Conyers. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!
