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.

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.

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.

POTUS MAIDEN TRIP BOTTOM

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS TOP

The President’s Domestic problems are Speaker Ryan and Main Stream Media. 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.

The President needs to retrieve the street manual, in which he will find a section that says, good things come to those who wait but not to those who wait too late. It is time for Potus to fish or cut bait. By any bureaucratic means possible, the President must find someone else or demand a team effort to promote his Domestic agenda. It is inconceivable that the President will get to the promise land with Speaker Ryan, as his Chauffer.

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 this is the best the 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.

All is not lost but it is time for the President to get seriously focused. 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. On the subject of Campaign promises, The President needs to realize that the campaign is over. It is time for him to lead and manage the Agenda. Equally important he should communicate effectively with his media staff and not say anything contradictory after news conferences. As for the new FBI Director, Trey Gowdy would be an excellent pick.

The key segments of the Domestic Agenda are Health Care, Border Wall, Military improvement, Tax Reform, Deficit and Debt, Illegal Immigration, and Manufacturing Jobs. It is unlikely that the President 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.

Health Care:

The slowness of Health Care legislation indicates that perhaps there is unwillingness. Perhaps, congress has no answer consistent with the varying philosophies on the table. Perhaps, Country should move to a Single Payer system with subsidy consistent with a means test. The question that must be answered for Health Care legislation to be a success is: how do we provide access to Health Care for millions of Americans who cannot afford the cost.

The problem with Health Care legislation is that Americans have lost concern for their fellow citizens. Discussions about Health Care provision for Americans has become all about money. For members of congress who continue to raise the issue of cost to provide reasonable Health Care for American citizens, when was the last time that you were concerned with the cost of Pensions, Health benefits, and Security after retirement from Government Service. How is that cost incorporated in the budget. Is that part of the “Entitlements”, and if so why not reduce the amount. If it is not part of the “Entitlements”, then where in the budget is it. Could it be that appropriation is classified?

Border Wall:

As for the border, not all sections will have a constructive wall. In sections where geography prevents the equivalent of a wall there should be a fortification of cameras with drones to monitor. Building a wall at the border is a good thing. Those in opposition are short sighted and need to look beyond the apparent. The 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 and will ultimately result in making an ass of you and me. It is not only Mexicans 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. Let us say you determined accurately that the person was Hispanic, could you determine if that person was Mexican, Guatemalan, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Brazilian, Argentinean, etc. I guarantee that better than Ninety Percent of you could not, even if you spoke with the person briefly and they responded in English.

Did you know that depending on the Light Index and your direction or location, someone you assume is Mexican, could be from Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, India, or Afghanistan? There are other countries that I could mention but that list is consistent with keeping it simple, so that you get the point.

No wall is Impenetrable but I find it difficult to believe that someone who made a living building Towers intends to construct a Picket Fence, above and below ground level. As a backup, there will be adequate military assets and work force to provide support 24/7. Frankly, I believe Engineers can design a two-wall construction with physical deterrent material between. Tunnels will not be safe or untouched from the construction. Tunnels will be discovered and destroyed. Homeland security might leave some Tunnels open but use them as collection points. To preserve greatness, progress, success, and happiness; building a wall is action required.

Military improvement:

Military improvement should be an easy goal to accomplish. It appears that there was a move afoot to decimate the Military. Our military needs to have an abundance of tools to defend Country. The Military needs to stay advanced and ahead to deal with the threats. The North Korean threat is not going away. The time is now, to deal conclusively with North Korea and prepare for Iran.

The North Korean confrontation is clearly the prelude to World War 3 but that war is years in the future. US North Korea confrontation is several years late but it is better to be late than never. Country is faced with never and that has to be averted. China realizes that today it is the US and tomorrow it will be China. North Korea nuclear ability must be destroyed. North Korea is noise in a quiet zone.

The noise must be silenced. Diplomacy is not an option at this time. Diplomacy came and went. Nuclear Technology is in the hands of the wrong person, specifically Kim jong Un. It is time to begin the scale back of proliferation. North Korea chose to be the starting 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.

Tax Reform:

The intent of Tax reform is to provide an economic stimulus and boost. It will benefit business especially entrepreneurs. It is debatable if employees will benefit. My concern is parts of the revised code will benefit employees but other parts might not after the Senate is through constructing the legislation. Regardless, Potus has an excellent idea, especially regarding Inheritance taxation. Tax reform will not be easy legislation because the Government has grown accustom to taking money.

Deficit and Debt:

Politicians have demonstrated that the Deficit is less important than Tax cuts. Tax cuts for the affluent is more important than helping fellow Americans in need. Quite candidly, politicians’ talking about deficit and the size thereof is a façade. It is merely tongue and cheek chatter because they created the deficit. The deficit be damned, we the politicians are obligated to repay our campaign contributors. Some politicians are Leopards. They cannot change their spots. The voters are not important. Their pledge to America is a charade. I thought that if you ran for public office the understanding was you were making a pledge to serve the people.

Since the financial crisis of 2008, Deficit and Debt is affecting State and Local governments. The fact is, individuals, Cities, Sates, Country, and the World is on a deficit to Debt path. Quite candidly, with the exception of China a country manufacturing things, one could argue that all countries are in one of two categories – Declared or Undeclared Debt.

The impact of Deficit to Debt on individuals is a bottomless pit of continued high unemployment, Foreclosures, astronomical credit card debt, and the increasing inability of decent human beings to afford necessities. At the same time, Local and State governments are increasing taxes but reducing the quality of services and contribution to Education. States that are in the Declared Debt category are CT, NY, OH, and CA. Others will declare soon.

The trend is reversible. However, it has to be done constructively and not by politicians running around like chicken without heads spewing vitriol or seeking to take away the right of unions to engage in Collective Bargaining. Neither will it be resolved by recklessly slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens. Frankly, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could create the age-old condition of two wrongs does not make a right.

In this world climate of unrest and citizens demanding actual Democracy as opposed to lip service of the ideology, slashing and eliminating programs that benefit citizens could be a recipe for disaster. The recipe and the meal could be on exhibit at a State near you.

Illegal Immigration:

Illegal immigration is a Trojan horse with the sides exposed. In essence, it is transparent and the occupants are visible.

We cannot continue to ignore Illegal Immigration. Any consideration of Amnesty for individuals in country illegally is the equivalent of allowing an invasion. An invasion condones importing criminals, Terrorists, and foreign diseases. Changing current Immigration Laws to accommodate invaders will demonstrate disrespect for citizens, the children of fallen soldiers, and legal immigrants.

Employing illegal immigrants at low wages and ignoring unemployed citizens is wrong. Employing illegal immigrants at low wages is temporary and unsustainable. Think about it, are you doing the same job that your parents did? Do you seriously think that the children of illegal immigrants will? If not, then what.

The fact is illegal immigrants in low wage occupation will not affect you. However, your children and Great Grandchildren will be competing with the descendants of illegal immigrants in the workplace. Consistently, the 14th Amendment MUST be amended. The 14th Amendment where it allows for the preposterous Anchor baby must and should be revised otherwise it will ultimately disenfranchise children born of Legal Permanent residents, Naturalized, and Natural born citizens.

The simple required amendment to the 14th Amendment should read as follows:

You are a citizen if and only if your mother was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to your conception.

Prior to your conception means that at the time of your birth and the gestation period is determined and concluded your mother must have valid proof that she was a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen prior to the commencement of said gestation period.

In essence, if it is determined by the medical community that your mother gave birth to you in 9 months, your mother MUST have been a Legal Permanent resident or a Naturalized citizen, or a Natural born citizen for more than 9 months before the date of your birth.

Manufacturing Jobs:

The loss of Manufacturing Jobs is the basis for our economic woes. Those jobs were sent off shore. The loss of Manufacturing Jobs created displaced workers who cannot pay their mortgages or purchase goods and services. To suggest that the workers most of whom have a High School Diploma and between the age of 50 and 70 should now go to Community Colleges and re-train is adding insult to injury. It is also undemocratic because you are taking their choice away. Besides, all jobs are important to sustain Country.

There was a time when just about everything was made in the USA. Now nothing or very little is. What can we do about that, you say. Simply refuse to purchase the merchandise. Personally, if the merchandise is not made in the Western Hemisphere, I do not buy. Yes, I actively read the labels to see where the product was manufactured.

Finally, we have a President who understands that Country and Empire will only be great if there is a manufacturing base. The manufacturing base has to be supported and strong.

POTUS DOMESTIC PROBLEMS BOTTOM

UNIFIED KOREAN PENINSULAR

UNIFIED KOREA TOP

North Korea is interested in unifying the Korean peninsular. The only problem is a North lead unification with Communist ideals would not be acceptable to the South. On the other hand if the unification of said peninsular is promoted by the South Koreans, promising a Republic political system, that might be an action acceptable by the South and 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 Peninsular 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.

Clearly, Kim jong Un has lost his bearings. He is obsessed with the idea of destroying South Korea, the United States, and Japan. These countries represent his version of evil and are responsible for the suffering of his people, at least as far as he knows. Japan and South Korea exhibit Western Culture. That is an affront to him and his people. Japan and South Korea are too pro-western for the neighborhood. Kim jong Un, thinks now is the time to end the equivalent of a rocky marriage.

I am surprised that North and South Korea have been able to coexist for 64 years. The difference between the two countries is that of Day and Night. Day and Night exist but they are not present at the same time. It now appears that the coexistence could be ending. There is economic disparity between the two. North is the biblical Cain and the South is Able. Until there is unification, there will be continued threats and incidents, all instigated by the North. There is a limit to patience and the human spirit can take just so much.

If the USA and the West exercise patience and remain physically committed, North Korea will crack. Kim jong Un will do something unacceptable, which will provoke a military response. It will then become a situation of shoot first and talk later. That scenario could bring about unification. Diplomacy has not worked for 64 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, the United States, and Japan.

This confrontation could be the prelude to World War 3 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 faced with never and that has to be prevented. China realizes that today it is the United States and tomorrow it will be China. North Korea nuclear ability must be destroyed. North Korea is noise in a quiet zone. The noise must be removed. Diplomacy is not an option at this time. It is unlikely that Kim jong Un will voluntarily give his toys to Goodwill. Nuclear Technology is in the hands of the wrong person. It is time to begin the scale back of proliferation.

North Korea chose to be the starting point. The world has 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.

What will the Korean Peninsular look like after the campaign? I do not think anyone knows. That bridge will be crossed at the appropriate time. 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.
