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.

Once Again Sing the Chorus Build the Wall Build the Wall Build the Wall April 3, 2018

In the last presidential election we had the choice between the last nail in our coffin and a chance.  We now have a chance.  America’s place on the world stage is being clarified by President Trump.  But we need to keep things in perspective.

We need to keep our eye on the prize.  What good does it do to gain the world if we lose the homeland?  It was mainly domestic issues that drove everyone to the polls to prevent Hillary’s coronation.  We want America back.  We want the shining city on a hill back not the shabby globalist collective Obama, Hillary and the rest of the Progressives have been shoving down our throat.

We need to save our country from disappearing beneath the waves of the uninvited.  And to have any chance of doing that we need to have a country left to save not just a place with open borders and a sign that says, “No admission fee and everything’s free.”

The clock is ticking.  The courts have shown they will do everything they can to stop our president from enforcing sanity or even the law to stop the invasion.  Congress has shown they will spend money on anything except border security.

Stop the migration invasion!  Secure the border!  No amnesty!

Bring our troops home from around the world and let them make us secure.  Build the wall, build the wall, build the wall.

Those who say we cannot build a wall need to take a look at the border between North and South Korea.  It may not be a smaller version of the Great Wall but it’s effective.  Or look at the wall Israel built on their border with the Palestinian Authority.  If these secure borders can be built, guarded, and maintained why can’t we do the same thing on our Southern border?

Bring our troops home from Korea.  Why should they be there as a trip wire?  Their deaths are meant to do nothing else but guarantee that we’ll be involved in the next war.  Let South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan deal with the suicidal Rocket Man.  Their populations and economies are much larger than the gulag which is North Korea.

Bring our troops home from Germany.  Lately the Germans and French seem friendlier to Russia than they do to us so who are we protecting them from?  Themselves?

Why should we spend billions each year to maintain these garrison troops left over from wars fought more than a half century ago.  Instead of spending that money overseas post the troops to our southern border and spend that money in our own country.

DACA is a Trojan horse.  Give amnesty to anyone and you’ll end up giving it to everyone.  The minute it becomes law the ACLU, CAIR, LA Raza and all the other America Last front groups will file challenges to the law’s supposedly iron-clad limitations.  These inevitable law suits will give liberal activist judges the opportunity to prop the door open.  They’ll argue, “Why is it fair that some get citizenship and others don’t?”  If the Trump Administration dares to stand against these attempts to stretch a limited amnesty into a come-one-come-all free-for-all the Ninth Circuit will get the opportunity to slap them down and knock the door off its hinges.

Besides, anyone apprehended by ICE after DACA will say they were brought here as a child and the courts will dutifully certify them as unaccompanied minors no matter how old they are.

President Trump, for standing up to the globalists you are to be commended.  Out here in fly-over country most are proud to hear you speak for us bravely and forthrightly.  Signing the latest Democrat omnibus obscenity has caused major ripples out here in fly-over country.  DACA would have pulled the plug.

Here’s an election strategy that will appeal to the Deplorables.  When the next Porkulous spending bill comes up right before the midterm election veto it, call the electioneering plutocrats back into session and run against a Congress that is thwarting the agenda you were elected to implement, demand full funding for the wall.  Better yet demand a 10% tax on money transfers to foreign countries and use that money to build the wall, or use the seized assets of the Mexican drug lords to build the wall.  Whatever you do build the wall build the wall, build the wall.

If you complete your reform of the Obamacare health insurance debacle, continue your reformation of the byzantine tax codes, and maintain your excellent record of cutting regulations you’ll go down as one of the greatest presidents in our history.  However, when a patient is hemorrhaging the first thing to do is stop the bleeding.  So first of all as our Commander-in-Chief, the one charged with protecting the nation, build the wall build the wall, build the wall.  Few people know the name of Marcus Aurelius.  Most people know the name of Hadrian build the wall build the wall, build the wall.

What Easter Means to Me March 28, 2018

I look at my life before Christ and I am struck by the fact that it doesn’t seem like my life.  I was born again on Palm Sunday in 1980.  I was thirty years old.  That has been thirty-eight years ago.  When I was first saved I mourned for all the years I had spent wasting my life trying to do it on my own.  I remember praying and asking God to give me as many years to serve Him as I had wasted denying Him.  Now, that is just one of the answered prayers in my life.

From the first day I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior I have done have never denied Him and standing on the faith He has given me I never will.  Have I always served Him?  Yes.  Have I always served Him well?  He will be the judge.  Have I ever fallen short of what He would have me be?  Yes, constantly, consistently, and often consciously.  Just as the greatest sinner and the greatest saint I will stand or fall based on His grace.

In my years before Him I lived my life into a dead-end of self-seeking, selfishness, and self-loathing.  Though I denied He even existed He reached out to me.  Though I took His name in vane he loved me.  Though I followed hedonism into every type of sin He washed me as clean as a new born baby, as clean as a new blanket of snow.

Jesus delivered me from alcoholism, from drug addiction, from hatred, from envy, and shame.  He gave me a new life complete with a new wife, a son, a healthy mind, a healthy body, and a new name.

What He has done for me He will do for you.  He loves you as much as He has ever loved anyone.  Your name is written on His hand and no one not sin, not hatred, not failure, and not the devil can snatch you out of His hand.

Trust in Him.  Reach out to Him and He will reach out to you.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Being God He did not grasp at that but instead emptied Himself and became a man.  Living a perfect life He was sacrificed for the children of Adam paying the price for every sin and opening the way through faith to become the children of God.  For if we will confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord an believe in our hearts that God has raised Him from the dead we will be saved.

And salvation is not just pie in the sky.  It is not just a far off reward for a life of toil and pain.  Salvation is a right now new life, a life where we will never be alone for He will send His Spirit to live within us.

Don’t let anything hold you back when Jesus wants to hold you up.

This is what Easter means to me life from death and life evermore.  An old song sums it up rather well:

Living he Loved Me
Dying he saved me
Buried He carried my
My sins far away
Rising he justified me
Freed me forever
One day he’s coming back Glorious day

Have a blessed Easter.

Problem Solved March 26, 2018

As suggested numerous time in these dispatches there is a way to build the wall by making an end run around the Democrats who are dedicated to open borders.

President Trump is the Commander-in-Chief of the military.  There can be no doubt about that.  Article II Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, the Commander in Chief clause, states that “the President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.”  It can’t get much clearer than that.

Mr. President use some of that windfall money you got for the military those spendthrifts in Congress forced down your throat to build the wall.

The Army Corps of Engineers can build thousands of miles of levees, dams, artificial lakes, and all sorts of other things.  They have all the equipment needed to build a wall.  They have all the expertise needed to build a wall.  And they follow you orders.  So, order them to build the wall.

Problem solved.

Trump Got Played March 24, 2018

This is the art of the deal?  Schumer and Pelosi get everything they want and Trump supporters get nothing?

Yes, the military needs what it needs but the President should have vetoed this monstrosity, shut down the government, forced the RINOs to come back from their vacation and send up individual appropriations.

This is a debacle.  Why should anyone vote for any Republican when the Democrats still rule the roost?

What’s next amnesty for the so-called dreamers?  That will turn into amnesty for millions with more on the way.  Anyone who is arrested will say they were brought here as a child.  All they will have to do is say that and the judicial legislators will give them a pass.

So when I say Trump got played I am beginning to think so did we.

Build the wall!  End the wars!  Make America great again!

Signing this pork barrel budget buster wasn’t the way to do it.

Very very disappointed….8—(

Random Thoughts III March 21, 2018

Why would someone be upset about deporting children but not upset about aborting them?

Democrats want DACA.  Trump offers DACA but they can’t vote for 12 years.  Democrats turn that down.  Does that show what they really want?

In California they can make plastic straws illegal but they can’t seem to make illegals illegal.

Socialism: Policies so good they have to be mandatory.

Mark Zuckerberg calls President Trump a fascist as he deletes posts, pages, and accounts of people he disagrees with.

The same people who call Preside4nt Trump a fascist are the same ones begging him to take everyone’s guns away…go figure.

Jay-Z: stabbed his own producer, punched his sister-in-law in the face on an elevator, and shoots his own brother.  He now says he is offended because he doesn’t like President Trump’s tone.

Two things are very expensive in international affairs: threats when they fail and promises when they succeed.

President Kennedy put men on the moon.  President Obama put men in the ladies room.

What criminals want most is a disarmed victim.

Why the study of History is exciting:

  • If we learn how we got here we can better understand here.
  • If we learn how the past became the present we can better anticipate the future.
  • It gives us the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others.
  • It isn’t all about memorizing names and dates to regurgitate on an exam. It is about investigating the lives of people just like us who lived in different times and in what were essentially different worlds.
  • Being a student of History is in many ways like being a time traveling detective.

The Flat Earth Society has members all around the globe.

The more Trump is investigated the more crimes involving prominent Democrats are exposed.

Recently a demonstrator was seen holding a sign that said, “If Trump isn’t Hitler than I’m a moron!”  Enough said?

If guns kill people then I guess pencils misspell words, spoons make people fat, and cars make people drive drunk.

Smooth seas never made a good sailor.

The Left’s answer to homicidal maniacs attacking innocent people is to disarm innocent people.

Wouldn’t it be great if the Masters of the Universe in Washington were as interested in spending control as they are in gun control?

When were young our grandparents try to tell us about their lives and we’re bored because it doesn’t interest us.  Later we wish we would have written it all down.  Then when we’re old we’re disappointed when our grandchildren couldn’t care less about the life we’ve lived…it was all so long ago.  That is part of the circle of life.  Very few people know the names of all eight of their great grandparents.  Few know even the names of three.  In a generation or two, at most three for most of us even our names will be forgotten.  All things in life will pass.  Only those things done in Christ will last.

From the “He Said What?” Department:

“Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”  President Kennedy from his message: Those Participating in Roosevelt Day Commemoration, 29 January 1961.  This was before we went through the looking glass.

The Maryland shooter of 3-20 was 17 years old.  He used a 9mm Glock.  According to Maryland law you must be 21 years old to purchase a hand gun.  Criminals don’t follow laws….that’s what makes them criminals.  And he was stopped by one man with his own gun.  No CNN, no vigils, no walkouts…the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media apparently didn’t notice.

Undocumented isn’t a race, it’s a criminal.  So why is someone a racist if they see a problem with twenty million + criminals being allowed to walk around, work, and demonstrate with immunity?

In Stockton, California during walkouts for gun violence students were arrested on charges of battery, vandalizing vehicles, and assaulting police offi8cers.  Doesn’t this prove the point that it isn’t the gun that’s the problem it’s the moral values and ethics of the people who commit the crimes?

Hillary needs a device around her neck with a button for, “Help I’ve fallen and I can’t quit getting back up.”

We Need Education Not Indoctrination March 20, 2018

After more than twenty years as a Pastor/House Painter I returned to school in my forties to become a History professor.  I saw that the lack of a historical perspective was an important part of the foundation of a dumbed down herd of sheeple being systematically programmed by the Progressive Educational Complex.

Watching my son go through public school and being involved in community liaison committees I saw that education in America was no longer attempting to teach people how to think they were instead teaching people what to think.  I was determined to try my best to stand against the wave.   A decade of full time school and work later and I was teaching college.

I was privileged to help build a dual enrollment program that allowed high school students earn college and high school credit from the same class.  The last year I was involved in this program over ninety students graduated with their AA and the High School Diploma at the same time.  I appreciated the opportunity to help these young people get a leg up on their educational careers.

During this experience I was tasked with observing the work of various high school teachers involved in the program.  I found many doing more indoctrination than education.  Here was a typical assignment in a political science class: Watch Michael Moore’s documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9” and then write an essay about how many lies President Bush told the American people to trick them into going to war.

I told the teacher that no matter what we think about the War in Iraq her assignment was not objective in any way and was designed to influence the performance and views of the students.

When I finally had the opportunity to administer a Political Science Department at a major university I told the professors that our goal should be for students to ask us after the class was concluded, “Are you a conservative or a liberal?”  We should be that even handed.  We should strive to guide our students into critical thinking not herd them into any prescribed ideology.

After more than twenty years as an educator and administrator I see that so many of our teachers come out of progressive schools spouting progressive dogma and blinded by their world view to the validity of any other way of thinking that they are molding future generations into clones of those who molded them.

People with conservative views often wonder how their own children turn into Obama zombies blindly saluting the flag of Planned Parenthood and worshiping at Al Gore’s altar of global warming while mouthing every PC platitude ever invented by the ACLU.  It shouldn’t be surprising when this happens.  We are being taxed to pay people to compress young skulls full of mush into mind numbed robots ready to march to the polls and vote for Nancy Pelosi or someone just like her.

It is time to put a stop to this.

And a state delegate from Virginia has a great idea on how to do this.  Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates Dave LaRock explains that his resolution asks the Board of Education to come up with a code of ethics for teachers in grades K-12.  Like the federal Hatch Act, LaRock’s resolution inspired by conservative pundit David Horowitz would prevent individuals from using their position to promote their political views or support a specific candidate.

This seems like commonsense education control to me.

Contact your local state Representative or Senator and ask them to sponsor a similar bill in your state.  Let’s see if we can wrest control of education out of the hands of the progressive operatives who have captured it.  It took the progressives more than 100 years to subvert the Republic it may take us just as long to bring it back.
