A Childless Father Who Has a Son June 12, 2018

I am blessed.  My wife gave me a son. He was hers before he was mine.  Then he became ours.  In my heart he is always mine and I feel as if I am his Dad.  But it often feels like a homerun record with an asterisk, an almost.  You see, I’m a step-father.  That’s as close as I will ever come to experiencing the life of a father and for that I am forever thankful to God for I am a childless father who has a son.

I know the pride of watching my son play little league.  Together we experienced the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.  I encouraged him to play music.  I helped with homework.  I watched him march in band.  I raced against the stop lights time after time to make it to events and meetings with teachers, doctor’s appointments, and birthdays.  I watched him graduate grade school after driving him from one town to another so he could remain in the same school with his friends after we moved.  I blessed God when he graduated high school and earned scholarships to college.  I was happy when he chose the girl my wife and I prayed for long before we ever met her, enjoyed being the father of the groom, and I love my grandchildren with all my heart.  I am truly blessed.  My wife gave me a son.

But there are four other children I have never known.  Four other children blood of my blood and bone of my bone that I never had the chance to know.

These are my aborted children.

They were aborted without my consent, told by the women involved and the courts that it was none of my business, murdered within the law, slaughtered beyond the pale.  They are still alive within my heart.

Let me say in defense of the women who aborted my children, before I gave my life to Christ I was a snake.  As a matter of fact I’ve always said that before I was saved snakes would cross the street when they saw me coming.  I was a drug addicted; drunken scheming dreamer convinced I should be something I wasn’t and equally convince I wasn’t what I was.

Any young woman who learned they were pregnant and that I was the father could not be blamed for deciding I was a waste of space, a self-indulgent loser, and a disaster as a potential father.  And although none of the three young women involved ever told me why they aborted my children, that’s what I have always thought was my addition to the equation.

Once I gave my life to Christ.  Once I sobered up, straightened out, and stood in the light of His love I knew he forgave me for any part I played in the deaths of these innocent children.  I know He forgives everyone who lays their sins at the foot of the cross.

Over the years He has ministered to my heart, my spirit, and my soul as I have cried tears for who could have been.  I am healed for when He said, “It is finished,” sin was defeated.  When He rose from the grave life conquered death, and since He ascended into heaven where He took His place at the right hand of the Father together we all live in Him.  I am healed.

But there is not a day I don’t miss those children.  There is not a day I don’t think of what might have been.  There is not a day that I don’t imagine seeing them in Him.

I struggle sometimes knowing that two of the women who aborted my children later had other children.  They’ve had an experience they took from me.  I don’t begrudge them the joy of parenting.  I have forgiven them.  But sometimes I’m jealous of what they have and of what I shall never have and for this I repent.  I also struggle sometimes watching other women I know have had abortions and later had children.  I know God has forgiven them.  I don’t have anything against them but at times I struggle with my own emotions.

All of this is the burden of this forgotten father.  I was forgotten in the decision to abort my children.  I have been forgotten in all the years since.

I may be forgotten but I cannot forget.

My children died.  Four lost lives in the American holocaust of millions.  They are four souls whose blood cries out to God, four cracks in my broken heart, four children of God I long to know, four tears I shall cry till the day we meet.

A step-father is like a used shoe.  It may look good, it may wear well, and at time it may even feel good.  But it’s still a used shoe.

However my step-son may feel about me I know how I feel about him.  He is my son.  I may have lost four but I have gained one.  I am blessed.  My wife gave me a son.

A Soap Opera That Never Ends Will Finally End Then What? June 6, 2018

All my life I’ve been in love with History.  I learned at an early age that if you love reading you can live a thousand lifetimes and if you’re wise you have the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others.  I’ve certainly experienced the former while unfortunately not doing much of the latter.

My love of History metastasized into a love of Political Science.  These two intellectual “Loves of my Life” have given me countless hours of joy lost in reading, mired in thinking, and entertained by speculation.

Now as I enter what are called the golden years, though I believe they might be made of brass, having spent several decades teaching both subjects I feel a need to share some insights not on particulars but instead on something that is usually disparaged and often dismissed, generalities.

Though most have never heard of him many can misquote the writer and philosopher George Santayana who is reported to have said, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.”  What he actually said was, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  There is a subtle difference there for learning and remembering are two different things.  This sounds so wise.  It even appears self-evident.  And it apparently, at least to my observation, it’s an oxymoron.  After a daily study of History for sixty years the only lesson I’ve learned is that humanity never learns the lessons of History.

In my classes I tell my students that History is nothing more than the stories of people just like us who lived at different times in what were essentially different worlds.  They had the same bodies and minds that we do.  They felt the same emotions.  They lived, they died, and now it is our turn.  I also tell them that if we don’t learn anything from History that helps us in our everyday life we might as well read fiction.

I know that most people study History because they have to.  I know most people find it boring.  As an exercise in memorizing dates, names, and facts to be later regurgitated on a test and forgotten I can well understand the boring part.  There are so few who can see through to the stories making History so exciting.  So few can lose themselves in the narrative, imagine themselves on the deck of that ship, in the palace with the king, or in the hut with that peasant.  They only see dates, and names, and facts. BORING!

And Political Science who cares about that?  I tell my students who don’t care about it at all that it’s the science of who gets what and if they don’t care about it someone else will and then they get to make the decisions.  So what do you want?  You decide.

Now after decades spent following politics through the lens of History attempting to share with others the insights gained I must tell you all that it’s essentially the equivalent of an ant studying a castle made of sand.  He spends his life telling other ants how wondrous the castle is, how imposing its turrets are, how deep its moat, and how formidable its defenses then the waves come in the castle is gone and the ants have disappeared.

I recently taught a class on American History from 1877 until the present to a class full of millennials.  We used a textbook that was more than a thousand pages long.  It wasn’t until the last few pages that we reached anything the students could remember as having happened since they became aware of the world around them.  That last twenty minutes of the semester really had an impact.

To most people History begins the day they’re born.  For all of us it ends the day we die.  And Political Science ends up being the science of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

In the 4.5 billion years of this planets existence, in the fifteen billion years since the Big Bang the history of humanity doesn’t even take up the last few pages.  It would fill perhaps part of a sentence, a few words such as……………. All things will pass only those things done in Christ will last.

That’s it.  The sum total of all I have learned, all I have discovered, and all I will ever know.  No Christ no peace.  Know Crist know peace.  For those who seek to gain their life will lose it and those who lose their life for Christ will find it.  He is the truth, the light, and the life and without Him there is no truth, or light, or life.

Stop fighting a war that’s already been won.  Stop spinning your wheels running in a race that goes in a circle.  Step out of the darkness and into the light and let this be the first day of the rest of your life.

The stories of those who have gone before teach us nothing if they don’t lead us to Christ.  The politics of this world are an endless loop, a tempest in a teacup, a soap opera that never ends.  It may be engaging to watch like a slow motion train wreck.  It may be exciting, exhilarating, even entertaining but for most of us in a hundred years no one will even know we were here.  In a thousand years no one will remember the compelling arguments of today, the all-important bitter debates about whether we place the deck chair here or there.  Yet in an eternity from now heaven will know whether or not we acknowledged Christ as our Savior, for if we confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead we shall be saved.

The Only Way Back to God May 29, 2018

If Jesus is the Son of God, if God became man and walked among us, if the incarnate deity suffered and died to pay for the sins of the world, if He descended into hell and took the keys of death from the devil, if He rose again from the dead justifying all who become one with Him, if He rose into heaven and anointed the ultimate altar with His blood offering up the payment for the fall of man what is there that can be of more importance than that?

If out of all the millions of books ever written God wrote one book, one set of writings infused with His Spirit, and alive with His Word what can compare with that?

I remember back when I first began to walk with Christ.  As with most new believers I burned with passion and devoted myself as exclusively as I could to the study of His Word.  I couldn’t get enough.  I read His Word every chance I got.  I devoured it.  I lived and breathed it.  Nothing else mattered. I just had to get His Word into me, into my life.  And it changed me.

Reading God’s Word led me to Christ.  Reading His Word taught me to love. Reading His Word taught me that I shouldn’t pollute His temple (my body) with drugs, tobacco, and other things.  It healed me of addictions I had accepted as a normal part of life, cleansed me of sins I hadn’t even known I was committing, and it gave me a love for God’s people, and His church.

Being a self-centered substance abuser, a street-fighting loner, and in general a morally bankrupt reprobate gave me a lot of running room in my search for holiness in Him.  I was working forty to eighty hours per week and spent every waking hour not at work in the Bible.  It was a wonderful time and a joyous time of getting to know my first love.

For many of us as the first blush of love fades, as the joy of Christian fellowship becomes an everyday event, as we learn that many Christians shoot the wounded, crucify pastors, and leave their love at the altar the supernatural becomes mundane and love fades.  Slowly we become colder until we wonder, “Was it all a dream?”

The cares of this life seem to cauterize the faith of believers.  We strive to walk by faith and not by sight but most of us are peeking.  We still have one eye on the world, one ear to the ground, and one hand in the cookie jar.  That’s what trips us up.  We can’t walk through life divided.   If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  You see no one can serve two masters.  For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and the world.

I have made that mistake.  Like Frodo looking into Mount Doom I peeked at the news until it consumed me.  My daily study of “What was going on” became an exercise in naval gazing: a worthless pursuit that gave me the ability to speak like an expert and live like a fool.  For a fool has said in his heart there is no God.  And I know there is a God and I invested my intellect and my attention in that which is not God.  For this I repent.

I remember when I was a new believer reading through the Bible for the first time.  When I read the book of Judges I wondered why God kept saving those Israelites over and over when after a few times it became evident they would just backslide again.  Then I had my first stumble, and my second, and my third, and I am forever grateful that God does not shoot the wounded.  Instead he binds the broken hearted.

As Unspoken puts it,

YOU CAN NEVER FALL

TOO HARD, SO FAST, SO FAR

THAT YOU CAN’T GET BACK

WHEN YOU’RE LOST, WHERE YOU ARE IS NEVER

TOO LATE, SO BAD, SO MUCH

THAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE

WHO YOU ARE

YOU CAN CHANGE WHO YOU ARE

If the world has caught you in its web once again, if shiny objects glittering in the light have captured your attention turn away from the world, cast your eyes upon Jesus, keep your thoughts upon Him, and return to your first love.

You may ask, “How do I do that?”

There is only one way back to God. …

Get back to God.

President Trump Stand by the Constitution May 4, 2018

This is an open plea to our president.   Mr. Trump stand by the Constitution or fall for the Mueller persecution team’s perjury trap.

The only body that is competent under our Constitution to indict (impeach) or try a president is Congress, not a prosecutor, not a grand jury, not the regular courts, not even the Supreme Court.

If Mueller and his team of Democrat donor Hillary supporters get a subpoena from a Grand Jury send them a ham sandwich and refuse to comply.  If the swamp dwellers and their Star Chamber get a federal court to rule that you must comply ignore it.  If they appeal it to the Supreme Court and they order you to comply ignore it.

You are the President of the United States.  According to Article Two, Section Four, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”  And according to Article One, Section Three, “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.”

The way it works is that the Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach an official, and it makes the Senate the sole court for impeachment trials.

After all these months of digging, of intimidating people trying to get them to offer damning testimony in exchange for the end of relentless persecution they have come up empty.  They don’t have anything or they would be moving forward with impeachment and now even crazy Nancy Pelosi is trying to talk Maxine Waters in off the ledge.  There are no grounds for impeachment.

So stand strong Mr. President.  Don’t let the Lilliputians get the threads on you in an obvious perjury trap that any interview or any other form of interrogation would entail.  They would be asking questions that they already no the answers to and expecting you to answer them by memory.  Even the slightest slip will be called perjury.  Having failed to find evidence of the imagined crime they were empaneled to investigate they are seeking to ensnare you in a process crime.

Don’t fall into their trap.  Don’t allow these minions of the Deep State to overthrow the results of a legally constituted election.  If it turns out that there is no chance to elect someone who doesn’t meet the standards of the nomenclature we have truly become an effective oligarchy disguised as an effective federal republic.

Mr. President, the people who voted to make America great again stand behind you.  Rise above these statists who seek to cling to power.  Drain the swamp and we can all watch the flowers of freedom grow.

Why I am No Longer a Conservative Republican April 19, 2018

Maybe it’s just me but I’m tired of the same old same old in our politics.  The big-box monopoly parties have morphed into two sides of the same coin, two heads on the same bird of prey.  Today our choice boils down to the Conservative Republican tax and spend, infringe personal liberty, and outsource or sovereignty policies or the Liberal Democrat tax and spend, infringe personal liberty, and outsource or sovereignty policies.  But of course, since we don’t want to throw away our vote we must vote for one of the big boys.   Conservative?  Liberal?  Tweedle Dee Or Tweedle Dum?

As a voter I’ve had my Damascus Road experience, the scales have fallen from my eyes, and I have reached the point where I would rather throw away my vote voting for someone who might actually try to find a different way to operate our government besides taxing like the Sun King and spending like a drunken sailor.  (By the way, do you know the difference between how a drunken sailor spends and how the Republicrats spend?  The drunken sailor is spending his own money.)

And what might this different way be?   How about this for radical: let’s return to constitutional government?   WOW!  what a concept.

How did we arrive at the current situation?  James Madison in his speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 16, 1788 said, “There are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by the gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpation.”  We didn’t get here all in one jump.  First the camel said, “Can I just stick my nose in your tent to stay warm?” and finally the generous man found himself out in the cold as the camel settled down for a nice warm nap, one inch at a time.

The compassion of our people built a safety net for those who needed help, and the greed of the lazy have turned it into a hammock.  America, the Land of the Free has turned into America, from each according to their abilities to each according to their need. The willingness to share our heritage has led America to welcome more immigrants each year than the rest of the world combined, and the abuse of our generosity has turned into a migration invasion that threatens to overwhelm us and destroy the future of our children.  Taxes imposed to meet the ever-swelling demands of government have turned into a blatant wealth re-distribution program that makes most pyramid schemes look fair.  Sometimes I think our government looks at a productive citizen as merely a source of residual income.  Or as the ads promise, our leaders lay on the beach of self-importance and our checks just keep pouring in.  We are no longer respected as Citizens.  Instead, we are coveted as consumers, or human capital.

Albert Einstein said, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

If we want a different world we have to start at the only place we have the absolute sovereign ability to make a change, we must start with ourselves.

I quit the Republican Party once it was obvious that the Republican majority in Congress I had spent my entire adult life working for was just a change in leadership and not a change in direction.  I quit calling myself a conservative after the second Bush debacle made it obvious that the conservative movement had been hijacked by the neocons and I realized that you can’t defend a captured position.  You can’t conserve what has already been lost.   I realized that we as a people, we as a federation of States need to find a different way.

One thing I know, no one person can do this alone.  No one group can do it.  To make any headway in the face of the electoral monopoly held by the party of power the many third party groups are going to have to coalesce into an effective opposition.  We can’t let divisions divide us any more, egos will have to be suppressed, and we will have to bond together with everyone dedicated to limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom.

None of us can roll this big rock up this steep hill by ourselves.  However, together we can.

Winston Churchill said, “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival.  There may be a worse case.  You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Looking at the increasing speed with which the Progressive regime (read Deep State) is building its command and control structure, the future is invading the present at an ever accelerating pace.  Their living document has made the Constitution a dead letter.  Their mixed economy has as many people on the dole as on the job.  The Fed’s printing press is burying us, our children, and their grandchildren taking out a mortgage on lives that haven’t been lived and spending money from taxes on work that hasn’t been done.

We must unite if these United States are to once again become the land of the free and the home of the brave instead of the land of the free lunch and the home of the knave.

Quoting  Ben Franklin, “We must hang together, gentlemen…else, we shall most assuredly hang separately.”

Today we have a chance.  President Trump is dedicated to draining the swamp.  The swamp is equally dedicated to getting rid of Trump.  Their embedded judges make rulings which are not even pretending to follow the law to thwart him.  The Russian collusion witch hunt continues to provide cover for Hillary’s actual crimes by trying to invent ones with which to impeach The Donald.

I will end with one more quote from Winston Churchill, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

Trump v Mueller Who Gets Who First? April 11, 2018

The recent raid by the Robert Mueller’s witch hunters on President Trump’s lawyer’s offices shows that we are nearing the third act.  The ever expanding search for a crime is reportedly now looking into a campaign donation that was made by a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch to the Trump Foundation in September 2015.  The donation was reportedly made after then-candidate Donald Trump gave a 20-minute speech at a European conference that promoted closer ties between Ukraine and the West.

Let’s see Hillary and the Clinton Crime Family get a pass for running a pay-to-play scam out of Foggy Bottom but the Persecutor-in-Chief has to take a microscope to this one donation.  Sounds like the creature from the Black Lagoon is alive and well in the Washington swamp.

Leading constitutional lawyer and longtime Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, in what he considers “a very serious escalation” of the special investigation into Russian interference of the 2016 election, called the FBI’s raid of the offices of President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday “a shocking and disturbing development.”  He added the development “should shock everybody, no matter what part of the partisan divide you’re on.”

According to Dershowitz, “This is a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.”  “If this were Hillary Clinton being investigated and they went into her lawyer’s office, the ACLU would be on every television station in America, jumping up and down,” he added.  “The deafening silence from the ACLU and civil libertarians about the intrusion into the lawyer-client confidentiality is really appalling,” Dershowitz said.  Dershowitz recommended that Trump make a motion in court to take Cohen’s materials away from the FBI and make a judge decide what evidence can be used and which cannot.

What do some of the President’s allies have to say?

“Time to fire the FBI Director,” a sometime Trump adviser, Roger Stone, said in a tweet.

Other allies suggested that the Mueller investigation has become undisciplined or even criminal.

“It’s clear Mr. Mueller’s operation has nothing do with fair enforcement of the law or equal justice,” Joseph diGenova, a Washington lawyer who agreed to join the president’s legal team last month before potential conflicts of interest prevented his hiring, said in an appearance on Fox Business Network. “It is basically a bunch of mobsters.”

Congress, he said, should impeach Rosenstein for not complying with an August 2017 subpoena seeking records related to the origin of the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

New York Post writer Michael Goodwin has some things to say about the Mueller witch hunt.  “The violent swings of the leaky pendulum make this an excellent moment to call timeout on the Mueller probe. What does he have, where is he going and when is he going to get there?”  “Those are basic questions that need to be answered. The American people deserve facts instead of waters muddied by partisanship, innuendo and special access to biased big-media companies.”  “Given the stakes, the public has a right to know at this point what it all adds up to. If Mueller won’t speak for himself, his handler, Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who created Mueller, should speak for him.”  “The endless leaks are the final straw.  The Mueller probe is the most important investigation in a generation and is casting a cloud over a presidency.  If this were a probe involving a third-level bureaucrat, assassination-by-leak would be distasteful but not as meaningful.  But this is the presidency, and even Trump haters should be appalled at the shoddy process.”

Lou Dobbs said, “We’re witnessing an orchestrated assault on the President of the United States,”

And conservative watchdog Judicial Watch official Tom Fitton on Monday night blasted the Department of Justice as “out of control,” and suggested special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “ought to be shut down.”

What do the Democrats have to say?

“If the president is thinking of using this raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russia probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don’t,” the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said in a statement.

And what does President Trump have to say about all this?

“These people have the biggest conflicts of interest I have ever seen. Democrats — all. Either Democrats or a couple of Republicans who worked for President Obama,” Trump said of the FBI investigators. “They’re not looking at the other side — Hillary Clinton… all of the crimes that were committed, all of the things that happened that everybody is very angry about from the Republican side and the independent side.”

“When I saw this, when I heard about it, that is a whole new level of unfairness.”

“They found no collusion what so ever with Russia.”

“I’ve wanted to keep it down. I’ve given over a million pages in documents to the special counsel. They continue to just go forward and here we are talking about Syria, we’re talking about a lot of serious things… and I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now,” Trump said. “Actually it’s much more than that. You could say right after I won the nomination it started.”

Or as he tweeted this morning, “Attorney–client privilege is dead!”

And what about those of us out here in fly-over country who voted for and still support our president?

I think what we need now is a private meeting between the President and the Rosenstein-Mueller Cabal where Mr. Trump uses one of his best catch phrases, “You’re fired!”

Let the chips fall where they may.

There is a silent coup in progress waged by the government party against a duly elected president.  If the creature from the Black Lagoon can manage to lead the denizens of the swamp in overthrowing the man we elected to drain the swamp.  The lie will have been exposed America has become a functioning oligarchy disguised as a nonfunctioning democratic republic.
