POLITICAL PARTY LEGACY

Since the Presidential election of 2016, there has been much talk about what it means to be Republican or Democrat. As a result, I did research specifically as it pertains to Blacks in Country.

Given the level of discord, acrimony, and in some cases hate, I did research on Politics in Country and seek to discover why Blacks seem obligated to support the Democrat Party. Simultaneously, I wanted to see if Blacks support of the Democrat Party was legitimate.

My findings indicate that Blacks support of the Democrat Party is illegitimate and misguided. Warner Wolf, would say lets go to the Video Tape but I say lets go to the Archives. Here are some facts gathered from research. Revelation was somewhat of a Blinded by the Light experience.

Fact: The Republican Party was established to oppose slavery. The   Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democrat Party tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican Party support and only 23% Democrat Party support in congress.

Fact: During the Civil War era, the Republican Party wanted to end slavery and endow the freed slaves with full citizenship, equality, and rights. The Democrat Party opposed.

Fact: Lincoln Vice President, Andrew Johnson, was pro-Union but also a pro-slavery Democrat who was selected by Lincoln as a compromise candidate to attract Democrats. After Lincoln’s assassination, Johnson opposed Republican Party efforts in Congress to recognize the civil rights of the freed slaves. The Democrat Party continued to prevent any such efforts for almost a century.

Fact: The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican Party support and 0% Democrat Party support in congress.

Fact: The 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican Party support and 0% Democrat Party support in congress.

Fact: The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was primarily an arm of the Southern Democrat Party. Its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and “nigger-loving” Republicans who sympathized with them.

Fact: In the 1950s, President Eisenhower, a Republican, integrated the US military and promoted civil rights for minorities. Eisenhower is responsible for the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1957. Eisenhower is responsible for the development of the Highway System, which though unmentioned was literally a Road Map for Blacks to relocate.

Fact: President Eisenhower primary political opponent on civil rights prior to 1957 was Lyndon Baines Johnson, then the Democrat Senate Majority Leader. LBJ previously voted on straight segregationist line until he changed his position and supported the 1957 Act.

Fact: in the 1960’s the Democrat Party engineered a subversive strategy of getting blacks as dependent as possible on government to secure their votes. At the same time, they began a smear campaign to label anyone who opposes their clandestine strategy as racists.

Fact: The historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it.

Fact: The Civil Rights Act of 1968, also known as the Fair Housing Act, provided for equal housing opportunities regardless of race, religion, or national origin. The Civil Rights Act of 1968, made it a federal crime to “by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin; was an upgrade to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It was also an appeasement consistent with the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Since the Republican Party took the lead in Civil Rights Act of 1964, credit has to be given to the Republican Party.

Barry Goldwater opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 attracted some racist Democrats to the Republican Party. However, Goldwater was not a racist or at least not an overt racist like many Democrats of the time, such as George Wallace and Bull Connor. He publicly supported racial equality and his opposition to the 1964 Act was consistent with his support of states rights. Regardless, his views were inconsistent with the mainstream, and he lost the 1964 Presidential election to LBJ in a landslide.

Goldwater’s opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Act provided liberals an opening to paint the Republican Party as racist, and they have echoed that narrative over the years. However, it is nothing more than an unsubstantiated myth.

If the Republican Party had more members, who were predispose to racism than the Democrat Party in 1964, why did a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act? The idea that Goldwater’s vote on the 1964 Civil Rights Act changed a century history of the Republican Party is ridiculous.

Every political party has its racists. The liberal media narrative that Republicans are more racist than Democrats is unsubstantiated innuendo and assertions. It is a classic example of a Lie that becomes true, simply by repeating it many times. Sadly, that has become a tactic used by Politicians. In essence, Politicians believe that if they tell you someone is an Angel numerous times, then you will ultimately believe.

In the 1960s, the Democrat Party changed its strategy for dealing with Black Americans. Thanks to Republican initiatives on civil rights, blatant racial oppression was no longer a viable political option. Whereas before Southern Democrats had overtly and proudly segregated and terrorized blacks, the national Democrat Party decided to be subtle and get them dependent on government as much as possible. As LBJ so elegantly put it, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years.” At the same time, the Democrats started a campaign of lies and innuendo, falsely equating any opposition to their Welfare State with racism.

From a political perspective, the Democrat Party strategy of black dependency has been extremely effective. LBJ knew exactly what he was doing. Black Americans routinely voted well over 90 percent Democrat for fear that Republicans will cut their government benefits and welfare programs. Fact is before LBJ’s Great Society welfare programs, the black illegitimacy rate was about 23 percent, but it tripled to about 72 percent by the 1970’s.

It was a Democrat as President in the 1990’s, who began the dismantling of the Welfare program. That certainly threw a monkey wrench at the buzzword “Democracy” and it was probably about the time that the Democrat Party realized with an influx of new immigrants they might not need a majority of the Black vote to win Elections.

Liberal Democrats ran most major American city governments for decades, and most of those cities have large black sections that are essentially dysfunctional ghettos. With Gangs and drug dealers, burnt out homes on every block in some areas, they destroyed cities like Detroit and Chicago. The land values are so low due to crime, blight, and lack of economic opportunity that condemned homes are not even worth rebuilding. Who wants to build a home in an Urban War Zone? Yet Blacks continue to elect liberal Democrats and blame presumed “racist” Republicans for their problems.

A convincing argument can be made, that the Democrat Party support for affirmative action is racist. Affirmative action is the antithesis of Martin Luther King’s dream of a Color-Blind society. Not only is it “reverse racism,” but the premise is that Black Americans are incapable of competing in the free market on a level playing field. It is predicated on the notion of white supremacy, though “benevolent”, rather than the openly hostile white supremacy of the pre-1960s Democrat Party. My issue with Affirmative action has always been, yes, it is great to get me into an “Ivy League” school but does it get me the Professional or Career opportunity.

These days, Political philosophy and thus Party lines are sometimes blurry. It depends on the person or candidate running for office. Far be it for me to suggest that you should vote for an individual because he or she is Republican or Democrat or Black. However, seems to me that Blacks need to get a Political attitude adjustment. My findings indicate that Blacks support of the Democrat Party is illegitimate, misguided, and unsubstantiated. Seems to be more reason why Blacks should support the Republican Party going forward. The Way Forward (Black America) is clear.

Years ago, I became a Registered Republican. Many in the Black community uttered dirty remarks. It is refreshing to see that some Black celebrities now realize the “Way Forward”. The Black community should embrace this change. For too long the Black Leadership held to the Civil Rights platform apparently not recognizing that Era is over. It is time to move forward and stop complaining, fighting, and marching.

To effect change and bring about your ideals you must be in the room. You must sit at the table. You must articulate the issues and needs. You must have a Road Map and be ready and able to implement plans and solutions.

The Democrat Party is not your conduit or path to solutions. The situations and conditions that affect the Neighborhood will not leave via the assistance of the Democrat Party. The only thing leaving the Hood from the assistance of the Democrat Party, are the “so called” Senators and Representatives. In fact, the Democrat Party added insult to injury with the installation of the previous Executive Branch of Government (2008 – 2016). The previous Administration was ineffective. What was accomplished was not meaningful and what would have been meaningful was not accomplished.

For too long the Black community placed their eggs in the basket of the Democrat Party. They waited decades for the chickens to hatch. Finally, there is an epiphany. Those who thought the ideology of the Democrat Party would bring forth progress and salvation have realized they were WRONG. In 2008 – 2016, there was a Democrat Party administration in the White House and the Black Community received nothing. If in doubt, speak to your neighborhood Baptist Pastor. Chicago and other inner city neighborhoods are rapidly approaching extinction status.

I would argue that Chicago looks worse than it did in 2008. Setting expectations, the Black Community should not count their chickens before they are hatched in interaction with the current Administration but anything is better than nothing. What do you have to lose? However, my bet is the Black community will get attention and assistance to begin moving forward.

The Democrat Party is all about Handouts, keeping you poor and in pursuit but never attaining. The Republican Party is about ideas and Puritan Work Ethic. Look around you, everything you see was once an idea. If the current leaders on the “Way Forward” are looking for prominent Republican Party members to contribute, they should invite Alan Keyes and Colin Powell.

There is work to be done and enough glory to go around. Here are keys to the success of the “Way Forward”:

  • Empower and encourage young Black people to become Entrepreneurs
  • Train them to be computer literate
  • Encourage them to focus on developing Industries missing from our infrastructure
  • Encourage them to “Think” and improve on existing Industries
  • Encourage them to look at Manufacturing and Farming and not relegate themselves to Services
  • Encourage them to utilize and promote their own talents and not be copycats
  • Instill in them that not everyone is academically inclined. There are roads, buildings, bridges, and other important segments of our infrastructure that need attention.
  • Encourage them to research George Washington Carver, Uncle Ben, and persons of that Ilk so that they can aspire to creativity and ingenuity.

The NAACP and Urban League are in need of an attitude and focus adjustment. The Way Forward is not about complaining, fighting, and marching. The “Way Forward” is not about Jobs, corporate sit-ins, or Internship. Jobs are initial but short-term solutions. Apprenticeship and Entrepreneurship are long-term solution and the “Way Forward”.

If you need something done, be willing and able to do it yourself with the necessary business or financial support. Country is a Capitalistic Society. It will not be a Socialist or Democratic Socialist. Free Press does not exist in an environment steered by Socialism. You must be in the room where ideas are being discussed and decisions made. You must sit at the table. You must articulate the needs and issues. You must have a Road Map and be ready and able to implement plans and solutions.

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?

Takeaway Kavanaugh Matter

KAVANAUGH MATTER BOTTOM

Those of us who were born before the Vietnam War are in a state of shock. We are horrified that this matter ever transpired. Intelligent people regardless of Ethnic background see this matter as a threat to the American culture.

This matter was a blatant attempt to conduct character assassination. This kind of behavior threatens Individualism. That someone can after 40 years accuse you of a presumed incident with the intent to negatively affect your life, is alarming.

Clearly, the good Judge did not handle rebuttal of the claim well. He would be the first to agree. He allowed anger and consternation to get the better of him. He should have composed himself in his responses, to the extent where some questions would have been given the “No Comment” or “I plead the 5th “. Divulging details of his Sex life was not vintage Best Practice.

Attorney Rachel Mitchell did not ask the right questions. I am baffled as to the reason. If you are there under the pretense of objectivity then why not ask questions consistent with that objective. Those of us who are fair and impartial found her line of questioning ineffective.

Here are some questions that should have been asked by Rachel Mitchell of Christine Blasey Ford:

  • Are you sure that you know Brett Kavanaugh
  • How long have you known him
  • When was the last time you both met privately and or in a Group setting
  • During your teen years, how often did you meet with Brett Kavanaugh or be in his presence
  • Were your meetings one-on-one or as part of a Group
  • Describe in one sentence or less your meetings with Brett Kavanaugh
  • Did you ever consider Dating Brett Kavanaugh
  • During your teen years did you like Brett Kavanaugh
  • Describe the Brett Kavanaugh you knew in your teen years
  • How certain are you that the Party was in 1982
  • Was there anything particular about 1982 other than Brett Kavanaugh, that prompted you to say that the incident occurred in that year
  • How did you get to the Party
  • You were presumably 15 at the time of the incident, did you have your parents permission to attend the party
  • People leave Parties before midnight or after, do you recall if you left before or after midnight
  • How did you get home
  • Do you recall about what time you returned home
  • Do you recall if your Parents were awake when you returned home
  • Did you tell your Parents about the incident
  • Are your Parents alive, if so would you allow a meeting regarding this matter
  • Did you notice any attitudinal changes as a result of the incident
  • When did you first realize attitudinal changes
  • How are you feeling at this moment…?

Those are just some of the questions that should have been asked. Pinpoint questions with Yes, No, or explicit answers. Attorney Rachel Mitchell involvement was to eliminate the need for an onlooker to formulate interpretation. Those of us who are fair and impartial found her line of questioning ineffective.

Parents with teenage sons should take notice of “The Kavanaugh Matter”. Today it is Brett Kavanaugh. Tomorrow it will be your son. You must reject character assassination. Allegations unsubstantiated by corroborating evidence must not become the new norm. Failing to do so will render your child susceptible to baseless accusations decades later. Accusations created with malicious intent, jealousy, and designed to inflict defamation of character should not be the new norm. These days, people appear more motivated to keep their fellow man down as opposed to doing things to uplift themselves.

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 could survive the scrutiny Brett Kavanaugh endured? Some currently on Capitol Hill who are not teenagers do or say things I hope they regret.

The Hearing process consistent with nomination to Federal positions might be damaged by the despicable conduct during the “Kavanaugh Hearing”. Can the process of Advice and Consent be repaired? Perhaps, but it might require a real Spartacus moment. The Hearing process consistent with nomination to the Supreme Court has been modified, to the extent that it is easier to succeed in an interview to become a Catholic Priest.

Supreme Court nominees who dare to exhibit interest in Females as teenagers are not welcome to the Fraternity or at least according to high profile members of the Democratic Party. Do not ingest “fire water” as a college student. Do not hang out with the fast crowd in school. Guilt by association is significant and will be held against you, even if said association occurred in your teen years. The best demeanor is to be a card-carrying member of the “Judicial space cadet” club. Daily routine should include Mom knocking on your forehead and inquire, “Is anyone home”.

If you watched the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, you cannot avoid noticing that there is something wrong psychologically. Perhaps, that is the look of psychology professors. I did not scrutinize the demeanor of psychology professors in school. I should visit a campus for an observation tour of members of that faculty.

In the wake of the defeat of losers in the Democratic Party, there is talk of impeaching Brett Kavanaugh. That is veiled threat, unless of course, the Democratic Party wishes to concede defeat before the Mid-Term elections. Frankly, my pulse indicates that there is no need for progressives to make even a cameo appearance at the polls. The Democratic Party will lose seats in Congress after the Mid-Term elections. The Gain they predicted is just a mirage.

Brett Kavanaugh has attained his objective in Life. Appointment to the Supreme Court is a Lifetime position. The plot to derail the process of confirming Brett Kavanaugh, failed.

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.

NORTH KOREA – POST SUMMIT

USFLAGWAVINGNORTH KOREA BOT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The summit in Singapore was a stunning surprise, perhaps too much so. Months later reality has set in or Kim jong Un has come to his senses. Maybe “The KIM” heard, deduced enough, and thinks he has a good preview of the adversary.

Posted account of destruction of nuclear installations after the summit may have been a smoke screen. What is beyond the apparent? Certainly, military intelligence should perceive it accordingly. Consistent with that realization, now what.

Will there be a follow up summit. If so, when, where, and why. Will the summit be to rehash the same verbiage, or for POTUS to inquire which word was misunderstood. Sometimes Leaders enter a room and discuss but after leaving, it is apparent that something was lost in the translation or interpretation. Was it because there was an I before an E or E before an I. Something is contributing to exhibiting misunderstandings or seeming disconnecting.

North Korea could not develop nuclear weapons without assistance. POTUS should press the Intelligence community to find out who provided assistance and are they still. Was it China, Russia, or Iran and if not who. Continue with the sanctions and inventory of receipt of goods. Find out through sanctions where from and what goods are arriving. Is it Jelly in the bottle or grey poupon dijon mustard? Is it water in the container or Atomic Isotopes?

The goal is to denuclearize North Korea and prevent use of such capacity to pressure South Korea into unifying the Korean peninsula on their terms. Sanctions will shed light on North Korea intentions. Action delayed is resolution denied.

Some in the International Community would like to imagine there is a diplomatic end to this conflict. That is a noble idea; now imagine there is no Western Civilization. Imagine there are no Olympics in Japan in 2020 or imagine you are not breathing.

Kim jong Un is out of show time. He is at the action stage. “The KIM” is at the point of no return. Saving face and leadership of the rogue regime is at stake. The International Community should be preparing for that moment. As sure as the sun shines tomorrow, he will get there.

The Hydrogen bomb is not an asset “The KIM” should be allowed to have. Therefore, the international community is witness to the arrival of Kim jong Un to the Unacceptable Zone. Hereafter we could be crossing over to the twilight zone. Diplomacy has yet to prove that it is an option. That horse appears to have left the Barn with no intention of returning, anytime soon.

Nuclear Technology is in the hands of the wrong person. Country could take away the ability to use Nuclear Technology but that might require a well-coordinated clandestine exercise. North Korea is a run-away child running wild in search of attention, which undoubtedly becomes a distraction from more important matters. North Korea nuclear ability must be destroyed. North Korea is noise in a quiet zone.

It is time to begin the scale back of proliferation. North Korea chose to be the start point. You have to start somewhere if there is any hope of maintaining civilization. As long as my Brothers and Cousins do not blink too long, the goal will be accomplished – “Stop Nuclear Proliferation” and the provocateurs who promote.

North Korea is interested in unifying the Korean peninsula. The only problem is a North lead unification with Communist ideals will be unacceptable to an International Community led by the USA. On the other hand if the unification of said peninsula is promoted by the South Koreans, promising a Republic political system, that might be an action acceptable by the World community. Course this is assuming that South Koreans are interested in unification, though you will admit that would be an ideal situation.

Which kind of unification would you prefer? Would you prefer a Korean Peninsula that looks more like North Korea or South Korea? In many ways the question is the equivalent of asking, if there was no day or night, which would you prefer to be right. North Korea has an opportunity to take POTUS country upgrade offer but will “The Kim”, accept.

Most Historians knew this time would come. Unfortunately, the eventuality is harder than anticipated because of the ineptitude of the two previous Administrations. Liberals and Regressive – alias Progressives, would like to bury their heads in the sand like Ostriches and hope the problem will depart. Unfortunately, that movie will not be coming to the Political Theater anytime soon. The best POTUS can hope for is that someone is ready to go to the Gym and engage in a clandestine exercise.

Diplomacy has not worked for 65 years. On what basis will it work now? It could get ugly but not any uglier than it will look if Kim jong Un is allowed to carry out his obsession of destroying South Korea, Japan, and the United States. This confrontation could be the prelude to World War III but that war is years in the future. A United States North Korea confrontation is several years late but it is better to be late than never. Country is up close and personal with never and that has to be prevented.

These moments try men soul. It comes when Country has important things to address and no one wants Military confrontation. However, the “way forward” is clear and Country has to attend to details. The cards are in hand, both sides need a card, two cards are on the table and face down. Are the faces of the cards Eagle or Red Star?

What will the Korean Peninsula look like in 2020? No one knows but 2020 will be a pivotal year in World History. There is a time to cry, a time to Laugh, a time to talk, and a time to fight. The challenge is knowing when to do each. As my Mentor Winston Churchill would say, Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. It is time for the Peninsula to have some Positive vibrations.

STATE OF KOREAN CONFLICT - MODIFIED

COLLUSION OF IT ALL

COLLUSION TOP1

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

The conduct of Democrats and Liberals is threatening to take Country backward. However, as witnessed successful Businessmen can be good Presidents. Democrats and Liberals will soon grow tired of the same old “Collusion” song. Democrats are doing an injustice to fellow Americans. In life, it is all about Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

It is time for Democrats especially in the House of Representatives, to get out of the way and stop collecting Checks 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 Americans 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. Citizens are growing weary of Taxation without Representation.

It takes collusion to know collusion. Democrats have engaged in collusion for the last eight years. Therefore, they are sensitive to collusion. The Libya Debacle was collusion. Democratic leaders in the House and Senate are foaming at the mouth unintelligibly and most seem to have difficulty deciding which country on the Korean Peninsula is our ally. God may very well have spared the Empire with the election of “The Donald”.

After decades of failed diplomacy, Democrats still believe that Kim jong Un is interested in the “Diplomacy” 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 State for a Penny. I will bet that some members of House of Representatives from California could not tell you which State in the union is the “Empire State”. Yes, it is the one terrorist attacked on 9/11/2001.

Diplomacy now is a combination of Dementia and Alzheimer philosophy. 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 act first and talk later.

If we fail to be vigilant, California will not need a Border Wall and residents will not need a 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 but I prefer to make Heaven and Hell right here on Earth.

The vitriol and verbal abuse of Potus has reached a crescendo. 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 Country during the Cold War period. Anyone who thinks that diplomacy will obtain us victory over North Korea should invest in Pine Boxes 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 Country is not embroiled in a Civil War but wait the Verbal Coup is still in the early stages. The violence displayed at Rallies on College Campuses indicates that while we are seemingly far away from a Civil War we might be closer than you think. The world is watching and perhaps saying, look at those imbeciles.

Because there are many Conservatives still alive, 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. The vitriol, animosity, and bickering would cease. 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 better 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 overabundance of persons is causing great harm in our minority communities. However, that fact as well as is Country experiencing Migration or Exodus are 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 froth with Collusion. Unless you have the willingness to deceive yourself, the previous Administration was giving Country away wholesale. Jobs, Industries, and people were being abandoned surreptitiously. The deplorables are not worth providing for or defending. Citizens are expendable in the minds of the Progressives. The anti-American policies of the previous Administration, considered borders obstruction 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 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 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 Chauffeur.  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. 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 candidate Trump, does not believe in the philosophy of POTUS, 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 satisfactory 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.

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. The segmentation of the Republican members of congress could lead to the demise of the Republican Party.

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. POTUS needs to employ Time, Focus, and Concentration and move all Campaign promises forward.

POTUS has nothing to fear but fear itself. Unless the Republican Party wish to squander their gains and be tarred and feathered in an election near you they should become organized.  Frankly, at this rate POTUS may do better without them. Some men fight better without an 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 when. Where is Clint Eastwood when you need him?

Despite the Verbal Coup and talk of Collusion, 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 Collusion Calculus for 2018 is incorrect and members of the Democratic leadership will be persuaded to retire young in discontent.

COLLUSION TOP

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.
