DISTRACTION

The Presidential Campaign Circus is back. The caravan of vehicles, from Bentleys to Wagon wheels, is back in the neighborhoods soliciting votes. The presidential campaign process with its apparent need to raise astronomical funds to participate, has eliminated qualified and capable individuals from participation in our Republic.

Qualified citizens must pay to participate in the civic growth and progress of the Republic. If we are to move forward as a successful nation, we must reconstruct the political participation landscape. What does raising money have to do with the ability to Govern? Unfortunately, the media has succeeded in giving the impression that there is a correlation. The truth is the media benefit by invoicing the candidates for coverage and at the end of the process; the voters pay for undeliverable.

Money or access has become a significant criterion. Survival of character assassination is now the first frontier. Ability and love of the Republic is irrelevant. The current political climate froth with character assassination would have eliminated many of our Founding fathers from participation in our Republic.

The political system has become Selective rather than Elective. Political incumbents have succeeded in persuading the masses to believe in the nebulous concept of Electability and Name recognition. Electability does not equate to performance. Having my father’s name does not mean I am like he, or as capable, or that you can predict my performance. Voters are being fed ineptitude wrapped in Electability and seasoned with “Name Recognition”.

It is flawed thinking to conclude, that one candidate has more experience than the other. If you have never been President, how can you have experience? No one has experience dealing with the evolving issues of the world. A candidate’s ability to deal with the issues in the Middle East and not disenfranchising Israel can be determined during the campaign. Any peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians that include reference to 1967 are a non-starter. To be honest, anyone who echoes concern about the aftermath of each uprising in the Middle East and appear to be oblivious to the gravity of the actions on the street is not qualified to deal with the issues.

The Presidential Campaign, especially the Democrat Debates is a distraction. The Debates are a distraction from real world issues and National concerns. A DISTRACTION, from Domestic and International issues.

No election, Political party, or singular economic philosophy will resolve the financial crisis of 2008, the unemployment condition created by NAFTA, or the failed Health Care policy. Time, focus, concentration, new ideas, and new people in Washington D.C. will move The Republic in the right direction and fix problems. This is precisely why we need Term Limits for members of congress. We do not need candidates running for the Presidential office everyday. We need politicians who do not solicit votes to be elected, and then legislate on issues to satisfy the interest of lobbyists or campaign contributors.

You cannot teach old dogs new tricks. If you put Lipstick on a pig, it is still a pig. People, Philosophies, and Ideologies do not change. While it is not how you start but rather how you finish, History has proven that start does matter with respect to political and International relations. If you begin by saying, Africa is a Country; the Postman will not be able to deliver the Telegram.

Most Countries in the West are experiencing Fiscal deficits because Expenses are greater than Revenue. The knee jerk reaction of some politicians is that expenses must be reduced, with no consideration to increasing revenue. The unfortunate truth is that in times of world economic plight and blight any attempt to focus solely on reducing expenses will create additional hardships on the already suffering population.

It is wrong to support Fiscal mismanagement, and it is wrong to attempt correction and irresponsibility on the backs of the poor. Two wrongs have never made a right. Fixing National deficits on the backs of the poor will create unrest similar to that in the Middle East.

Simply put, if Revenue is 100 Billion and Expenses are 150 Billion then we have a deficit of 50 Billion. Fixing the deficit by reducing expenses by 50 Billion seems like a logical action but that could create an issue. Eliminating expenses means eliminating programs. Eliminating programs will mean eliminating jobs at some level. Governments cannot afford to contribute to the level of unemployment when citizens are expecting them to be part of the solution. Government and Private Business is either part of the problem or part of the solution. Fortunately, POTUS is on the right Tracks Domestically and Internationally.

The fiscal responsible response to correcting national Deficits is a combination of reducing expenses, increasing revenue, and further searching the details of expenses to find and eliminate useless items. Frankly, studying the domestication of Squirrels is useless.

Increasing the deficit ceiling will only create an atmosphere that presumes continued deficits are not a serious matter. Continued deficits must be curtailed, if there is a genuine interest in addressing National debt. A national deficit is the equivalent of a battle but National Debt is a war.

Increasing the debt ceiling is analogous to raising your credit limit at the company store to spend more knowing very well, that you are having issues making the payment on the previous limit. The only accomplishment from such action is the debt getting older and deeper.

Which of the participants in the Debates can handle the following?

Unemployment, Manufacturing Jobs, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, Declining morality by our elected officials, Campaign Financing, Pakistan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Uprising in the Middle East, Turmoil in Africa, inevitable conflict with Iran and North Korea, and growing friction with China.

I say none. What do you think?

ASSAULT ON CIVILITY CONTINUES

ASSAULT WEAPONS TOP PREF

 

There should be strict control on the sale of assault weapons. Otherwise we will continue to have shooting incidents like Luby’s Cafeteria, McDonald’s, University of Texas, Virginia Tech, Aurora Theater, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Pulse Night Club, Columbine High School, Texas Church, Las Vegas, Borderline Bar and Grill, Tree of Life Synagogue, Santa Fe High School, and Parkland.

Deaths by location: Luby’s Cafeteria (23), McDonald’s (21), University of Texas (15), Virginia Tech (32), Aurora Theater (12), Sandy Hook Elementary School (26), Pulse Night Club (49), Columbine High School (13), Texas Church (25), Las Vegas (58), Borderline Bar and Grill (12), Tree of Life Synagogue (11), Santa Fe High School (10), and Parkland (17).

This plea does not include or consider Hand Guns or the various types of Pistols as assault weapons. Assault weapons are the various types of rifles. Purchasing an Assault Weapon is the equivalent of buying a car when you only need a Wagon. There is no point in purchasing an Assault Weapon if you are not planning to shoot it. Yes, you can go to the range but idiots buying Assault weapons are not interested in silhouettes. Persons buying Assault weapons are interested in shooting a pop up target, an animal, another human, and in some cases a spouse.

I am appalled that individuals can purchase Assault weapons in a civilize setting. How is it possible to sell Assault weapons in civilize Country? We need to control sales of Assault weapons. This is not a war Zone. Many of the persons buying weapons would not serve a day in the military because they are physically or mentally incapable or just plain cowards. Unfortunately, those persons commit heinous acts. There is no understanding of the use of an Assault weapon in a civilize setting. In the Military, you are not issued certain weapons unless your Military Occupational Specialty requires the use of said weapons.

What happened in Luby’s Cafeteria (23), McDonald’s (21), University of Texas (15), Virginia Tech (32), Aurora Theater (12), Sandy Hook Elementary School (26), Pulse Night Club (49), Columbine High School (13), Texas Church (25), Las Vegas (58), Borderline Bar and Grill (12), Tree of Life Synagogue (11), Santa Fe High School (10), and Parkland (17) was Barbaric. Clearly, Sales of Assault weapons cost Lives.

Sales of Assault weapons are not good for the civil health of our society. Gun shops are about making money. Once again, greed rears its ugly head similar to those who took money to teach people how to fly airplanes and unconcern that said individuals had no interest in learning how to return to Land. Greed got us into a financial crisis in 2008. Our Society and way of Life is in danger of falling off the proverbial Cliff and our Authority elements are acting like “Dimwits”. Greed from the sale of Assault Weapons will create mayhem in our society.

Reactions to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre included buffoons suggesting arming teachers. Arming teachers is a bad, ridiculous, and ludicrous idea. Arming teachers is an idea that has permanent residency in the preposterous.

The solution is to take some of that ridiculous money Superintendents of High schools make and install cameras at all corners. In addition, put a security detail together with qualified Guards and CCTV. Use common sense and security measures to ensure that unauthorized persons do not gain access to said premises. Have staffed camera surveillance at all perimeter entrances and exits. Maintenance of such a system will require two shifts of Guards with the second shift on duty until all school personnel leave each day.

Assault weapons are not good for the civil health of our society. Imagine the 60’s riots with assault rifles. The second Amendment is alive and well but it is time to restrict or prohibit the sale of assault weapons. Neighborhood facilities are not war zones. What was witnessed in the Las Vegas massacre, should give non-military people a glimpse or preview of what a war zone look and feel like. That kind of event does not belong on our streets. Our streets are for the expression of civility, peace, love, and accord.

The Las Vegas massacre was a planned slaughter of innocent people. Stephen Paddock picked the time of day, and location to maximize the carnage. He cleverly selected a vantage point that gave him maximum view and concealment. Unless you are highly analytical or with a military past, in that crowded space with poor lighting, you were at significant disadvantage against someone firing a rifle in automatic mode.

We may never know why Stephen Paddock decided to end his Life. Clearly, he did and decided to take people with him. The Las Vegas massacre was the echo of Stephen Paddock saying; stop the world, let me off. It is possible that he had a vision of meeting with seven virgins in the after Life. Unfortunately, he left several wives on earth to carry on as virgins. I wish them well as they deal with grief and try to move forward.

IMMIGRATION OR EXODUS

UNIFIED KOREA TOP

 

It is approximately 2500 miles from Honduras to the US Southern border. Unless you are an idiot, 7000 Migrants are not walking that distance. They are being shuttled when they are not on camera. If you account for all necessary daily Biological functions, then the conclusion is this is a staged event. It is a staged event designed to make POTUS look bad or the Migrants are all Spartacus.

I can only think of one person who would attempt to walk 2500 miles. That person is my Grandfather when he was less than 30 years of age. Unfortunately, I did not know him at that age and he is not alive for us to have that discussion. Regardless he would not be in a crowd of 7000 and if he walked 2500 miles, there would be no women and children in that pedestrian excursion. At the very least, that is my reflection.

If the Mexican government is unable to prevent 7000 presumed unarmed Immigrants from marching through the proverbial Main Street, then this is an amazing moment. The United States Military should take note. If the Mexican government is unable to prevent 7000 presumed unarmed Immigrants from walking down Main Street, whom can they stop? There is significant Takeaway for the US Military Generals.

What is Immigration? Clearly not 7000 people walking 2500 Miles in an obviously staged event motivated by a Spartacus moment. Marching to the border with the expectation of being allowed in is an Invasion not Immigration. Invasions will always prompt a Military response. Said migrants had better not display any violence.

The History of Immigration to the United States reflects a control orderly flow of immigrants conducted on policy or needs basis. This staged event is consistent with Emigration and with the threat of similar actions in the region, these movements resemble an Exodus. Perhaps, it is time to reevaluate the Political infrastructure of South America including Mexico. Nation Building is not a good thing but clearly, something has gone wrong. Exodus is not good for the Hemisphere.

Building a wall at the border is a good thing. Those in opposition are short sighted and need to look beyond the apparent. Most Mexicans are good people and while the wall will restrict their migration, they are simply victims of Geographical location. The wall is about preventing uncontrolled and unlawful entry to the United States from the South. To assume that Mexicans are the only people using that route is fallacious. Such an assumption is inaccurate. Mexicans are not the only ones crossing the Southern border. People from Central and South America, the Middle East, Asia, and even Africa are entering the United States via the Southern border.

If you were near the Southern border at Nogales Arizona, Tijuana California, Juarez New Mexico, or Brownsville Texas and saw a Male or Female that you knew was not Black or White; would you be able to tell if that person was Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern just by looking at them. I think not.

Let us say you determined accurately and the person was Hispanic, could you determine if that person was Mexican, Guatemalan, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Brazilian, Argentinean, Honduran, Venezuelan, etc. I guarantee that better than Ninety Percent of the population could not.

Depending on your position or location, someone you assume is Mexican, could be from Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, India, or Afghanistan. There are other countries but the short list is consistent with keeping it simple. No wall is impenetrable but I find it difficult to believe that someone who built Towers for a living intends to construct a Picket Fence. As a backup, there will be adequate military assets and work force to provide constant support.

Engineers will design a two or three tier wall with physical deterrent material between. Tunnels will not be safe or untouched from that kind of construction. Tunnels will be discovered and destroyed. Homeland Security might leave some Tunnels open using them as collection points. To preserve greatness, progress, success, and happiness; building a wall is action required. Action delayed is resolution denied.

There are 7000 Migrants marching to the Southern Border. Can they be stopped when they arrive? The answer is yes. POTUS should shut the Border down. Sign is up; we are closed for business indefinitely. What normally happens when a merchant is on vacation and you visit the store? That is right; you go away and come back when the merchant returns. What happens if you try to break the door down? That is right; the alarm sounds and you suffer the consequence.

The Kavanaugh Matter

KAVANAUGH MATTER TOP

POTUS needs to stay strong and committed to this nominee. Historically, Incidents or infractions that occur while a Minor, is not transferred to Adult life. In addition, said incident was not reported to Local Authorities. Therefore, the Matter is inadmissible. I have two thumbs down on the claim. Democrats are conveniently ignoring the facts in their malicious attempt to derail the nomination.

This claim is a blatant attempt to conduct character assassination. This kind of behavior threatens Individualism. The mere fact that someone can appear 40 years later and say, you did something wrong when you were young and foolish, attempting to negatively affect your life, is alarming.

Almost all on Capitol Hill did something as a teenager they regret. People in Glass Houses should not throw stones. How many Democrats currently in Leadership do you think would allow their family member to be subjected to this kind of scrutiny? The answer is none. If the FBI is allowed to investigate unreported incidents that occurred during your teen years, I believe we would discover amazing tidbits.

An incident occurred 40 years ago and was not traumatic enough to be reported all these years. Suddenly Christine Blasey Ford finds the trauma so great that it must be reported. She cannot wait a moment later, now is the time. To add insult to injury, she will report the incident but will not testify under oath. Really? That is preposterous at best.

Brett Kavanaugh had much success during the 40-year period. Christine Blasey Ford had numerous occasions and years to air the dirty laundry. Why is it so important that “now is the time”? Now is the time in her mind because Brett Kavanaugh has attained his objective in Life. Appointment to the Supreme Court is a Lifetime position. Christine Blasey Ford is at best a sub-standard Psychology professor. Most of us took Psychology in school because we were forced to. Psychology is one of those courses you took, because the school would probably not give you the Degree unless you suffered through the malarkey.

Reporting an incident that presumably occurred 40 years ago, is an act that spans anywhere from malicious intent to defamation of character. This matter is about seizing an opportunity to ruin someone’s life. As long as Brett Kavanaugh remained a Judge (attorney) and she as a Doctor of Psychology, to the naked eye they were academically and professionally somewhat equal. However, my Tiebreaker money is on the Judge.

Now that Brett Kavanaugh will become a Supreme Court Justice, the equality academically and professionally no longer exists. Therefore, he must be barred at any cost from doing so. He must be denied the opportunity. Out with the Philosophy of the brotherhood of Man.

Unless you were a sheltered child, most teens did something they are slightly ashamed of or can be characterized, as being reckless. My suspicion is that everyone at this alleged House Party was in a drunken state of stupor. For all we know given her lack of complete recollection, she might have been the perpetuator. Perhaps, that was the reason it took her all this time to fabricate courage to make the claim. The honorable Justice looks like an Altar or Choir Boy, from my vantage point.

Whether Christine Blasey Ford testifies or not, is not likely to dispel doubts about her authenticity. Frankly, it is difficult in this case to get past the initial question of why now. For her to demand an FBI investigation as a precondition to testify, adds to the bewilderment. Does she believe the FBI is going to charge Brett Kavanaugh now? It is not only unlikely but also impossible. The FBI does not have jurisdiction in this matter. Seems to me, that the Democratic Party continues to march down the path of ridiculous to the border of absurd.

Even if the Bureau engage in a look and feel good investigation at the behest of the progressives, that process could take a year to produce predictable inconclusive evidence. The process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh cannot wait that long and the good Judge should not withdraw and POTUS should not ask him to do so.

The plot is to derail the process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh. The intent is to hijack the process with a presumed claim 40 years LATE. Does the Democratic Party care about the optics, of course not? The public is tired of the daily political ugliness that threatens the ruination of the Republic. Could it be that we are witnessing a political party reduced to a Judas, ready to destroy the idea of the founding fathers for the equivalent of thirty pieces of silver? Clearly, the kavanaugh matter is the best opposing argument by the Democrats since the confirmation hearing began but it is 40 years weak. Quite candidly, my Democratic Party antagonist is that the best you can do.

STAND FOR THE ANTHEM AND FLAG

USFLAGWAVING

POTUS said any athlete who takes a knee when the Anthem plays, should be FIRED. He did not say if any “Black, White, Brown, Green, or Color of person”. To interpret any with a specific color, race, or ethnicity is a stretch. Those who made that association, is seeking to find discord with POTUS. Those who made that association would disagree with POTUS if he said the sky is Blue.

The Anthem and the Flag regardless of Country, should be respected and honored. It should not matter if you are from that Country. Respect for your fellow man should motivate you to show admiration for someone’s Anthem and Flag and as such, professional athletes employed by organizations registered in the United States, are expected and obligated to show respect for the Anthem and Flag of the United States.

Kneeling is something you do in church but then most of them do not attend. If you believe that kneeling on the field while those whose attention you wish to attract are in buildings or in church, then you are simply wasting time. The protocol is that if you wish to enact change you must be in the room. The other party must be within the sound of your voice. You cannot go out, kill Law Enforcement personnel, and then tell them to change.

No one is above the Law or rules of civic engagement designed to preserve civility. Individuals who take the position that Laws are made to be broken or bend should be ready to deal with consequences. Two wrongs have never made a right. If someone representing Law Enforcement kills a civilian unjustifiably then you have the right to express anger and demand that the matter be investigated and rectified. However, unless you are on the scene when a member of Law Enforcement commits an unlawful assault, you should not engage in unlawful retaliation after the fact.

Hijacking the flag will not bring about social or political settlement. The flag represents freedom, not just for the USA but Western civilization including all the islands surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. Those who disrespect the flag are disrespecting the Lives of women and men who died trying to keep it waving, especially in World War II.

Many of the dead in World War II left no offspring to benefit from their sacrifice. They left behind no descendant to share in the Freedom and Prosperity derived from the outcome of that war. To those kneeling at the playing of the Anthem and presentation of the flag, here is a fact that you should ponder. Was it not for the efforts of those brave women and men who died in World War II, if you were lucky to be born before or after 1945, you would be speaking Japanese, German, or Russian. Instead, your primary Language is English and the non-English speaking world aspires to learning how to speak it. Contrary to the belief of some, it is not only people from Great Britain and Australia who speak English.

Everyone in the Western Hemisphere has the right to protest. However, you do not have the right to protest the flag. It is simplistic to believe there is something to gain, by making a spectacle of yourself kneeling at the playing of the Anthem and presentation of the flag. Some have even burn the flag of Country but to date achieved nothing positive in result.

Football players making millions, in the only country they could make that much money for their skills, should reconsider their approach to resolution. Any athlete, who thinks there is something wrong with the relationship between Blacks and Law Enforcement, should put money where their mouth is, in this case knees, and constructively organize to effect change. If the task is too much for them then they should solicit leadership of qualified Pastors or Lawyers.

Having said that, do not solicit participation of Pastors who continue to look in the rear view mirror of the slavery narrative but rather those who aspire to move forward. Solicit Leadership from Pastors who believe in constructive and productive dialog that will culminate in better understanding, respect, and integration. Do not solicit aged Pastors who prefer to relish or stay stuck in the mud of the past.

Something is wrong but first do the analysis and determine what. Let us not rush to the conclusion that this side is right and the other wrong. Life is a journey and along the way, there is cause and effect, action and reaction. Your appearance, the time of day, and the neighborhood, can create an unwarranted image and one thing leads to another. Communities and Society are unhinged and collectively we all need to know how to get along. The times are changing. Blacks need to reflect on the messages of my Soul Music Legend.

EAGLEFORSTANDING -ARTICLE

VERBAL COUP

verbal coup top

President Trump has nothing to fear but fear itself. This Russian collusion is a non-issue and will fizzle. Country is in a state of Verbal Coup. The Democrats continuous harping about this non-issue and doing nothing to further the interest of struggling United States citizens are in effect conducting a Verbal Coup. Democrats have abdicated their responsibility to participate in the Government and are in effect engaged in a Coup.

The conduct of Democrats and Liberals is threatening to take Country backward. However, successful Businessmen make good Presidents and Democrats and Liberals will soon grow tired. Democrats are doing an injustice to the American citizens. In life, it is all about Lead, follow, or get out of the way. I think it is time for the Democrats especially in the House of Representatives, to get out of the way and stop collecting Pay Checks that they cannot justify earning. If your daily existence is to say no to the agenda, that the voters clearly asked for, then you are doing an injustice to the American citizens and you should go home. Said Democrats, should be repealed and replaced by their constituents. Some Democrats in the House of Representatives qualify for impeachment.

It takes collusion to know collusion. Democrats have engaged in collusion in the last eight years that they have become sensitive to collusion. The Libya Debacle was collusion. Democratic leaders in the House and Senate are foaming at the mouth unintelligibly, to the extent that most cannot decide which of the countries on the Korean Peninsular is our ally. God may very well have spared the Empire with the election of The Donald.

After decades of failed diplomacy, there are Democrats who believe that Kim jong Un is interested in that Tag Sale and is searching for the nearest Good Will organization to donate his Nuclear Toys. To those Democrats, I will sell you the Empire Sate for a Penny. I will bet that members of House of Representatives from California, could not tell you which State in the union is known as the: “Empire State”.

The problem with that Dementia and Alzheimer diplomacy philosophy by the Democrats is that Kim jong Un will continue to ignore such pleadings. The only thing that will stop a bully is confrontation. If we who breathe, eat, and sleep the ideals of our Republic take, two mental steps back but remain physically committed, Kim jong Un will crack. He will do something unacceptable, which will provoke a military response. It will then become a situation of shoot first and talk later.

If we fail to be vigilant, California will not need a Border Wall or Lock on the door. To the Progressives who in reality are really Regressive, failure is not an option in this confrontation with North Korea; otherwise, I will see you in Heaven or Hell. I do not know about you nor do I care but I prefer to make Heaven and Hell right here on Earth.

The vitriol and verbal abuse of Potus has reached a crescendo. Those members of our community that are less than thirty years of age must think that our presumed leaders are bleeping idiots. How did a Nation so strong give birth to such bleeping idiots? Vladimir Putin is probably wondering why Russia did not attack during the Cold War period.

Anyone who thinks that diplomacy will obtain us victory over North Korea should invest in a Pine Box at the local Funeral Parlor. Verbal Coup is in full swing. Just listen to the mad congressional representatives from California. The vitriol, animosity, bickering, and unintelligible daily outbursts is at such a high level that I am amazed that Country is not embroiled in a Civil War but the Verbal Coup is still in the early stages. Even so, the violence displayed at Rallies on College Campuses is indicative that while we are seemingly far away from a Civil War we might be closer than one would like to think. The world is watching and perhaps saying, look at those imbeciles.

There are many Conservatives still alive so Country is not on the eve of Destruction but we are definitely being tested. I suggest that we gather the dissenting members of Congress and sponsor a vacation to Siberia with the support of Vladimir Putin. I am confident that upon their hastily return they would have great respect for our Republic. What do you think?

A simple thing like protecting our Southern Border should not be viewed negatively. If that border was protected and Immigrants properly vetted, ms13 would not have killed any of our young citizens. Prevent is always easier than cure. Protecting your border is a no brainer but the Democrats with Boll Weevil in their heads fail to comprehend the benefits of such action. The laxity in border protection and the immigration of an over abundance of persons is causing great harm in our minority communities. However, that fact as well as is Country experiencing Migration or Exodus will be subjects for future discussion.

Study all the agreements of the previous Administration including their policies on refugees and you will determine that they were all Debacles. Unless you have the willingness to lie to yourself, the previous Administration was giving Country away wholesale. Jobs, Industries, and people were being abandoned surreptitiously. Consistent with the anti-American policies of the previous Administration, borders were obstructions to their objective.

The previous Administration allowed Subversive elements to inhabit the West wing. While those concerned would like to hide that fact, Country narrowly escaped a cultural invasion of epic proportion. Thank heavens for Potus; schools are no longer teaching any cockamamie Islamic tolerance. How and why did members of the Republican Party allow that to happen? I do not recall hearing any Republican Senator especially John McCain objecting to that absurdity. There are a number of Republicans who appear to have obtained membership in the RINO organization.  The RINO organization consists of members of the Political class who are Republicans in Name Only. Suspected members are part of the Verbal Coup. Listen to John McCain and Paul Ryan sometime and you will have no doubt that there is a Verbal Coup in Country.

As for Paul Ryan, it is inconceivable that the President will get to the promise land with Speaker Ryan, as his Chauffer.  Speaker Ryan is a Democrat in Republican clothing. Potus will not accomplish his goals if Speaker Ryan is the lead or face promoting his agenda. Speaker Ryan is part of the swamp. Therefore, he must be part of the drainage. For a while, Speaker Ryan was able to mask his intentions but the mask is off. Speaker Ryan has sold out to the Left. Ryan did not support the Presidents candidacy, does not believe in the philosophy of the President, and will not promote the agenda of the Administration. Speaker Ryan must go.

To Speaker Ryan, ask not what the Republican Party can do for you but what you can do for the Republican Party. Your required action should be self-evident. The Administration and the Party need to move forward. Please do the right thing. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

After seven years of discontent, the Affordable Health Care proposal on the table is inadequate. After all these years, neither Party appears willing to provide a Single Payer Health Insurance solution. I find it difficult to believe that the current plan is the best that Republican Party Law makers can draft. The principal architect is mentally inebriated from being too close to or too far from the project. The principal architect lacks the understanding and interpretation of the issue. It is impossible for him to construct a satisfactory plan. The segmentation of the Republican members of congress could lead to the demise of the Republican Party.

Until the “Freedom Caucus” is 435 members in the house and 100 Senators in the Senate, they are a minority Group and will not have final word on any legislation nor should they be allowed to.

If the intent of the “Freedom Caucus” is to do nothing and bring Government to a halt, then they are doing a terrific job. If the “Freedom Caucus” believes doing nothing will metamorphose into a Landmark decision, then my feedback is, awake from that delusion. Each “Freedom Caucus” member should stop collecting paychecks and deposit said funds to the Health Care entity of choice until President Trump signs satisfactory legislation.

Not all is lost but it is time for the President to get focus. The President needs to launch his Veto Power. The President needs to be reminded, that he can veto anything that does not meet expectation. He should veto any Legislation that the Democrats seek to move forward that weaken his leadership. The President needs to employ Time, Focus, and Concentration and move all Campaign promises forward.

President Trump has nothing to fear but fear itself. It is all right but then it has to be all right unless the Republicans wish to squander their gains and be tarred and feathered in an election near you. This would leave Potus to fight the good fight against all foes. Frankly, at this rate the President may do better without them. Some men fight better when they have no Army. Sometimes an army of Politicians is a distraction. Well, perhaps only in Washington since the Fifth Dimensions or was it the Age of Aquarius. The verbal Coup has been going on so long now, I do not even remember. Where is Clint Eastwood when you need him?

Despite the Verbal Coup, Potus can still get his Agenda across the finish line. The Domestic Agenda of Health Care, Border Wall, Military improvement, Tax Reform, Illegal Immigration, and Manufacturing Jobs are all doable. It is unlikely that Potus can do much about Deficit and Debt in the near term. However, he needs to develop a sound strategy to accomplish the rest. Anything less than complete accomplishment will be perceived as failure. However, if that is the scenario, I hope that the Democrats Calculus for 2018 is incorrect and members of the Democratic leadership will be persuaded to retire young or in discontent.

POTUS INTERNATIONAL EXPEDITION

POTUS MAIDEN TRIP TOP

The Arab Islamic American summit, convened by king Salman and President Trump was a success. This new initiative to eradicate Terrorism is truly a Partnership of Civilizations. President Trump expedition to visit the three largest monotheistic religions on his maiden international trip is an unparalleled concoction of diplomacy. To plan and execute a trip that includes a visit to the epicenter of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity is truly deep thinking. It proves that successful Businessmen make good Presidents. There is only one other President who could contrive such a successful trip and that would be Potus.

Career politicians in Washington, would not have a prayers chance of conceiving such a trip let alone executing. Politicians who believe their umbilical cord is tied to the Presidency, not to mention the puppets who believe certain Democrats have an inherent right to lead them, could not accomplish this feat even in their dreams. The previous administration lacked the vision required to concoct an Arab Islamic American summit let alone achieving the results.

Consistent with lack of vision, I do not recall anyone electing a Politician to go to Egypt and apologize for America. It will take a miracle for the Democrats to admit they were hoodwinked for eight years. Simultaneously, the pulpits in the hood will probably not recover from their failed promotion regarding the candidate of choice in the Presidential election of 2008. I believe that the Pastors in the local communities were as anxious as the leaders of the International community, to begin the Trump Era.

Members of the swamp in Washington have yet to recognize that lecturing foreign Governments will not work. Imposing your way of life on Countries with distinct cultures is a foolish approach. No one is buying stop selling. That is why Potus is selling weapons and Technology. Fact is our founding Fathers did not create a Democracy. They created a Republic. Remember, “I pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands, one Nation under God with Liberty and justice for all”.

The founding Fathers wanted Liberty and Freedom for all. You can do Liberty and Freedom without being a Democracy. If the Democrats and Mainstream media understood what Democracy meant, they would not be trying to engineer a coup d’état. Democracy means of the People, For the People, and By the People. The People voted, stop trying to undo the Presidential Election of 2016. Members of the previous Administration have no more right to lead than Potus. From my perspective, Potus has accomplished more in four months than the previous Administration did in eight years or could ever do in eighty years. The previous Administration left Country in a mess domestically and internationally that even Potus with a construction background is going to be hard press to clean up. In the interim, Country will very likely be engaged in three wars.

To the Democrats and Mainstream media do you know the definition of a fool? It is doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results. Emasculating Male leaders of State and strumming the faces of Female leaders by lecturing and trying to impose Democracy, will accomplish nothing. Potus approach is the right way forward. You convince Leaders by emphasizing common goals and objectives. You suggest and recommend but let them make the decision to change their social practices and conduct. You have to let Leaders believe that change is their decision. You employ reverse psychology to bring about desired goals. It is the Art of partnership.

The presumed common goals of the Leaders of all countries are Peace, Security, and Prosperity for all citizens. Potus and the Secretary of State are emphasizing and nurturing these common goals. Eventually some will accept the values of Country, others will not. It is better to be pragmatic and deal with the world as it is. Idiotic members of congress who maintain dogmatic positions, will fail in their efforts to change foreign leaders and jeopardize the success of Country.

Changing hearts and minds of leaders will be an incidental occurrence, at the right time, and only when they are ready. When you push or continuously harp, you lose audience. When you push too hard, you will be viewed as a bully. When you exhibit the characteristic of a bully, you will get one of two reactions, confrontation or flee. Neither result is of benefit to Country. Country needs positive and not negative results. Country needs to engage the rest of the world in win win win exercises. For example: Saudi Arabia gets weapons, America gets money, and Americans and Saudis get Jobs.

Idiotic members of congress and mainstream media need to understand that Country fighting with Saudi Arabia about Human Rights is a coming attraction. Maybe it will be at a theater near you and maybe it will not. The only movie my fellow Americans want to see is “Jobs”. That movie has a significant take away. On the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood, that is a battle for another day. Simultaneously, moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be a better decision in the proverbial tomorrow.

My take away from the stop in Saudi Arabia is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is in danger from Iran. Consequently, it is in their interest to engage Country. In addition, unifying into the entity Gulf Cooperation Countries, Saudi Arabia increases its ability to defend against any Iranian attack short of nuclear.

My take away from the stop in Israel is Prime Minister Netanyahu, is probably feeling the pressure to be the leader that returns the Capital of Israel to Jerusalem. Equally important, he would like to make peace with the Palestinians but he is not convinced it is possible. I am inclined to share his pessimism.

The stop at the Vatican will ultimately be inconsequential. The visit was symbolic and ceremonial. The Pope is passive consistent with the protocol of Catholicism and Potus is an active and determined President. Potus see that action is required to eradicate extremists. The Pope is naïve and believes the Bible and prayers alone will prevail. The Pope needs to remember that God conducted some serious battles against evil. If the philosophy of the Pope is considered a strategy to confront terror, more people will suffer and some will die. The Pope’s Bible and Olive branch approach will not work.

The Pope’s Bible and Olive branch approach to evil was the reason why the Carter Presidency was a failure. The Carter Presidency left us Iran as a legacy. There is a glaring resemblance of the Carter Presidency to that of the previous administration. Both left us Iran as a dangerous legacy. The Democratic Party and their Administrations since 1976 are responsible for all the failed and lingering International policies. Failed International policies including but not limited to NAFTA, North Korea, Iran, Libya, and a list of others are responsible for the woes of Country.

Democrats criticize Potus for not having an International policy or strategy but the sad truth is they have none. Historically the Democrats have been void of sound policies domestically and internationally, unless you have the inclination to define the “Libya Debacle” as a sound International policy. Domestically, NAFTA is the basis for loss of Manufacturing Jobs and economic woes.

The Democratic Party is in a funk that having them as part of the Government is threatening the security of Country. The minority leader of the Senate is engaging in behavior consistent with Coup D’état. There are people in Washington who consider themselves members of a Political class. Therefore, Potus is not qualified to be President. Those who echo that sentiment are simply legends in their own mind. Their sole interest is themselves in disguise that they represent the people. The people voted for Trump but they the Political class disagrees with the choice. As a result, they are willing to be obstructionists for the next four years and suppress the will of the people.

I would rather see the Businessman who became a Politician try to move Country forward than have a career politician continue the stagnation and the decline created by the previous administration. Democratic members of the house of Representatives especially the minority leader and her cronies cannot remember which country is associated with specific issues. That indicates that such ignoramuses do not have a clue where the respective countries are on the Globe. If you do not know where a country is then it is unlikely that you can concoct a plan to address an issue. Said Democrats are likely to tell you that Africa or the Middle East is a country. Such obfuscation is the best that the “Progressives” can offer.

Potus has substantive plans for country. He is offering a vision and not dreams that will not come through. A vision of what the world should be. A world filled with ideas and the sharing thereof between people and nations. Out of many nations, one world. A world filled with Peace, Security, and Prosperity.
