Hope For The Hopeless April 3, 2017

What is the self-deception of self-perception?

It is so easy to believe that the universe is self-centered because our perception is.  The only universe anyone can see is viewable from one and only one perspective; with our self in the center.

Like any other type of navel gazing the self-deception of self-perception carries the seeds of its own penalty.  While focusing on self we miss the reality of the world that is spinning around us oblivious to the self-absorbed child prattling away in the center of a room full of adults.  We may think we are profound.  However if our only frame of reference is the inherently flawed one we perceive from our perch in the center of an ego-centric universe our insights are skewed and our judgement irrelevant.  We may believe we are essential.  However, while knowing we are essential we should recall that graveyards are filled with irreplaceable people.

This is not an attempt to bring about a personal Great Depression.  It is not it is not the voice of one crying from the roof tops, “Abandon hope all ye who enter here” from someone who ascribes to the street wisdom, “Life’s a bitch and then you die.”

No, this is the warning of one who has made the mistake of confusing the apparent reality of a personally centered universe for the reality of a God centered universe.  For make no mistake, if we do not put God in the center we will inevitably and eventually put ourselves there.

As we watch our world wobble off into a bizarre pseudo-reality created by perpetually re-elected control freaks in government, indoctrination centers posing as educational institutions, and spin machines in the media it is hard to see where it is going.

Look at the so-called Russian Scandal.  What I want to know is that if the Russians hacked the election to change the outcome and Hillary won the popular vote why aren’t we looking at her campaign for the collusion?

The shrill campaign to make the Trump Presidency appear illegitimate becomes more transparent every day.  Look at Judge Neil Gorsuch, a man who was earlier confirmed unanimously for the Appeals court Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer now says he has “serious doubts” that Judge Gorsuch is within what Democrats consider to be the legal mainstream.

On issue after issue whatever President Trump tries to do or say he is attacked.  It reminds me of the story making the rounds; President Trump is out in a boat with another man.  The other man’s hat blows off.  President Trump gets out of the boat and walks on the water over to get the hat and then walks on the water back.  Gives the hat to the man and gets back in the boat.  The next day the headline is, “Trump can’t swim.”

Many of those around us, many of those who rule the world around us are trapped in a cycle of navel gazing.  They can’t see the forest for the trees.  In the last election we had the choice between the last nail in our coffin and a chance.  We decided to take the chance.  Don’t let those who believe they are the source and summit of all things stop us from at least trying to get ourselves out of the ditch they drove us into.

And by the way the only real antidote to falling into the self-deception of self-perception trap is to confess Jesus Christ as Lord and to believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead.  If you will do that all the rest of this will fall into place no matter what headlines the media cartel chooses to invent.

The only way we got here to begin with is because prayer works and because He promised if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

So when you see the navel gazers lying about everything, making up their fake news, and convincing everyone around you to repeat their headlines thinking that these are their personal opinions don’t get dismayed.  Don’t be depressed.  For though a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look and see the reward of the wicked.  Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place no evil shall befall you nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;  for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.  In their hands they shall bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Remember without hope your hopeless and I would not want to leave you hopeless.  In other words, why worry when you can pray?

I Smell Some Rats March 27, 2017

After the election the stock market took off like a rocket.  Job creation zoomed toward the stratosphere.  Today as the chameleon Progressive RINOs crawl out from under the sheep’s clothing they use to disguise themselves in every election.  As they follow their leaders John McCain and Lindsey Graham in attacking President Trump and doing everything they can to thwart his agenda the markets are beginning to stumble.

In this column I have noted for a long time that if we want the economy to shake off the shackles of the collectivist chains it isn’t rocket science.  Cut through the Gordian Knot of regulations which strangle business and lower the punishing tax rates that steal the fruit of producers flushing it down the Washington money hole.  Have you ever wondered why we see signs that say share the wealth but we never see signs that say share the work?  In any society that taxes Peter to pay Paul eventually everyone changes their name to Paul.

One of the maxims of economics is if you want more of something subsidize it.  If you want less tax it.  Look at the policies of the Progressives since 1989.  They’ve turned a safety net into a hammock so is it any wonder we have so many with the free time to be professional protestors demanding more?

Now that the Ryan led House has been prevented from pushing Obamacare Lite down our throats.  The Donald says he wants tax reform.  As a matter of fact he now regrets that he didn’t work on tax reform first.  How long will it take for McCain and Company to oppose that?  Business people are beginning to see all the rats have not left the ship even though it is drowning in twenty trillion dollars of debt.

The debt ceiling will be raised.  The lead from behind diplomacy of the Apologize-in-Chief left potential wars looming on the horizon in Korea and Syria.   Either one could blossom overnight into major sinkholes for the Trump Administration.

Once, no twice America voted for the smoke and mirrors of hope and change.  Now we have voted for drain the swamp and build the wall.  In the first case we reaped the whirlwind of retreat and defeat.  And with the cheer leading of McCain, Graham, and others reaching across the aisle to maintain the strings of the Lilliputians the American Gulliver can’t seem to break free.

Calling for special prosecutors to inventigate the mythical links between President Trump and Russian spies, evidently hiding under every bush, the push for impeachment hearings will roll through the halls Congress as sure as liberals love taxes and regulations.

I am beginning to think we should carve the faces of McCain, Graham, Schumer and Franken on the sides of Mount Trashmore.   A fitting tribute to those who labor long and hard to impose upon us their vision of America as just one more state in a New World Order run by the nameless faceless bureaucrats infesting 760 United Nations Plaza.

Defund the UN?  I say throw them out and let The Donald turn the whole thing into condominiums.  And who knows, after their impeachment debacle fails maybe the voters will wake up and throw the bums out along with their globalist bathwater.

When Patrick Henry was elected to attend the Constitutional Convention he famously said no.  When asked why he wouldn’t attend he answered, “I smelt a rat.”    What did he mean?  What did the man who said, “Give me liberty or give me death,” see coming in the wake of revolution?  Look at the best Congress money can buy and you will see what the smell was all about.

What Did Obama Know and When Did He Know It? March 24, 2017

The accusation that the Trump team and maybe even Candidate Trump himself colluded with the Russians has been going on since before the inauguration.  The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel, the media megaphone of the Democrat Party, has battered the low information voters with unfounded charges delivered as hard fact for months.

The RHINO fellow travelers led by John McCain and Lindsey Graham have spewed forth their impassioned cries for a special prosecutor.  Republican led committees in the House and the Senate have played along with or at least provided a prestigious stage for what the Deep State or Permanent Government hopes will be President Trump’s version of Watergate.  The hysterical demagogues such as Representative Maxine Waters and Representative Keith Ellison seconded of course by Senator Lindsey RHINO Graham, are already calling or in the case of the ersatz conservative Graham “warning” of impeachment.

Then Came Trump with a tweet that roiled the happy little parade to another Silent Coup.  On March the 4th President Trump Tweeted, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”  This was followed about half an hour later with another Tweet, “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Since that time the Media has been frothing at the mouth calling him a liar, calling the charges fake news and generally going berserk that a victim of their electronic and print lynching would have the gall to try to slip the noose.  They trotted out all the usual suspects to say there was nothing to The Donald’s charges.

Yet the hearings on whether or not the Trump team colluded with the Russians go on as if nothing has happened.  Over and over our Intelligence professionals have told us that their exhaustive investigations have unearthed nothing.  There is no evidence of collusion.  Both the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and ex-CIA Director Mike Morrell have said they saw no evidence of collusion.

Here are my questions: If these intelligence people were investigating whether or not there was collusion what were they looking at to make their determinations?  Was it the records of phone calls?  Was it emails?  Was it tapes of conversations?  And how would any of these be available if the people in question had not been under surveillance?

Just look at the case of General Flynn.  It was reported by the Cartel that the FBI reviewed transcripts of the General’s phone calls and found that he did nothing illegal.  He was fired not for what he did but for not being forthcoming in reporting it to the Vice President.  This episode was a favorite hobby horse of the Cartel for weeks.  It was pointed out as evidence of the Trump Team’s collusion with the Russians, though it actually proved the exact opposite.  It does however prove that at least one member of the Team was wire tapped.  How else would they have the transcripts to review?

Now comes the smoking gun.

According to a report on Fox News, “Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretapped him in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.”

This is stunning.  This not only turns the entire case on its head it shows the depths to which the outgoing Obama Regime was prepared to stoop to undermine the peaceful transfer of power they were outwardly pretending to facilitate.

The report goes on to say, “The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.”  Why would BHO’s minions do such things?  What was their purpose?  Was it in any way tied to protecting the security of America?  Or at least in looking for actual criminal activity?  No.  The report adds, “The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.”

While the FBI of Director Comey fights a holding action for the establishment other sources are set to provide the evidence to support the President’s Tweeted charges of improper surveillance.  The Fox Report confirms this saying, “The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday.”

That prescient and insightful commentator on American Politics Pat Buchanan sums up what the real scandal is very well:

The real scandal, which the media regard as a diversion from the primary target, Trump, is that a Deep State conspiracy to bring down his presidency seems to have been put in place by Obamaites, and perhaps approved by Obama himself.

Consider. On Jan. 12, David Ignatius of the Washington Post wrote,

“According to a senior U.S. government official, (Gen. Michael) Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials … What did Flynn say?”

Now, on Dec. 29, Flynn, national security adviser-designate, was not only doing his job calling the ambassador, he was a private citizen.

Why was he unmasked by U.S. intelligence?

Who is this “senior official” who dropped the dime on him? Could this official have known how many times Flynn spoke to Kislyak, yet not known what was said on the calls?

That is hard to believe. This looks like a contract hit by an anti-Trump agent in the intel community, using Ignatius to do the wet work.

Flynn was taken down. Did Comey turn his FBI loose to ferret out the felon who had unmasked Flynn and done him in? If not, why not?

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Dan Henninger points anew to a story in The New York Times of March 1 that began:

“In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Trump and Russians — across the government.”

“This is what they did,” wrote Henninger, quoting the Times:

“At intelligence agencies, there was a push to process as much raw intelligence as possible into analyses, and to keep the reports at a relatively low classification level to ensure as wide a readership as possible across the government — and, in some cases, among European allies.”

For what benign purpose would U.S. intelligence agents spread secrets damaging to their own president — to foreign regimes? Is this not disloyalty? Is this not sedition?

On Jan. 12, writes Henninger, the Times “reported that Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed rules that let the National Security Agency disseminate ‘raw signals intelligence information’ to 16 other intelligence agencies.”

Astounding. The Obamaites seeded the U.S. and allied intel communities with IEDs to be detonated on Trump’s arrival. This is the scandal, not Trump telling Vlad to go find Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails.

We need to know who colluded with the Russians, if anyone did. But more critically, we need to unearth the deep state conspiracy to sabotage a presidency.

So far, the Russia-connection investigation has proven a dry hole. But an investigation into who in the FBI, CIA or NSA is unmasking U.S. citizens and criminally leaking information to a Trump-hating press to destroy a president they are sworn to serve could prove to be a gusher.

As for the reports of Lynch-White House involvement in this unfolding plot to damage and destroy Trump the real question is: What did Barack Obama know, and when did he know it?

This all leads me to one last question:

If the Russians hacked the election to promote Trump why did Hillary win the popular vote?

Trump the Chumps March 22, 2017

This is it.  This is the last chance we have of returning our nation to an agenda of America First.  If the globalists among the perpetually re-elected twin headed bird of prey that is the best Congress money can buy along with their Deep State/Permanent Government allies can successfully thwart this attempt to make America Great Again there will be no reprieve.  The stenographers of the Democrat Party, the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel media megaphone trumpets their fake news every day.  Within hours this becomes the personal opinion of their legions of militantly apathetic low information voters.

The last person elected president who wanted to drain the swamp was Nixon in 1972.  Before that it was JFK.  Mr. President, watch your back.  The RINOs in Congress along with their brethren across the aisle are planning the Nixon treatment for you.  Let us pray there is no one planning the JFK treatment.

America has been sold down the river for so long many people have come to enjoy the ride.  Like paying customers on an amusement ride they float along through the tunnel of entitlements not knowing that at the end of the tunnel is a waterfall called austerity.  You just simply cannot continue to spend more than you make forever.  While it may sound like fun to charge your overdrawn Mastercard to your Visa and your overdrawn Visa to your Discover and then get a cash advance on your Mastercard to pay your Discover eventually you run out of other people’s money

We have been following the pipers on our way to bankruptcy like rats out of Hamelin.  The music sounded great, “♪ You can have it all for free ♫” but eventually you have to pay the piper.

President Trump’s first budget is a down payment on a debt too big to be paid.  It is a stretch to believe we could ever see twenty trillion dollars paid off in our lifetime but we can make a start.  We can begin to scratch our way out of the hole our out of control spending has dug.

Have you ever heard of the scratch test?  An old man, the descendant of a band of robbers from Italy once told me that in the Old Country they would throw new born babies into a marble pool and if the baby did not at least scratch at the side in an attempt to live they would let it drown.

Another old story is that if you find yourself stuck in a hole the first thing to do is stop digging.

Support the President’s Budget.  Ignore the Cartel and their fake news.  Let you senators and congress person know you want them to support the president.  In other words, “Trump the chumps, stay the course and make America great again.”

Trump Makes His Move to Drain the Swamp March 13, 2017

During his historic campaign for the presidency Donald Trump promised repeatedly that if elected he would seek to drain the swamp.  By this his many supporters believed he meant get rid of the armies of apparatchik bureaucrats who think they own the government.  The Deep State or as they call themselves the Permanent Government composed of mainly Democrat/Progressive/Socialists who make up a red tape spewing horde protected by civil service laws and the SEIU who seek to regulate every aspect of our lives.

Now he is seeking to do just that.  This can be seen in the budget proposal Mr. Trump is delivering to Congress this week.  It is as radical as anything seen in Washington in our life time.  Other presidents have promised to shrink the size of government yet none has actually delivered since Calvin Coolidge.  Of course the Democrats and their Progressive fellow travelers on the other side of the aisle are already squealing.  Look for the media megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel to begin repeating into their broadcast echo chambers how many grandmothers will be pushed over cliffs, children left to starve, rivers polluted and poisons released into our homes if even one bureaucrat is laid off.  Oh the sky is falling!  How could we possibly survive without Uncle Sugar to pay people not to work and Uncle Sam the Man to tell us how to live?

Don’t be deceived by the purveyors of fake news and political spin.  The President isn’t seeking to pollute the world or starve the indigent.  He is instead seeking to reign in runaway bureaucrats who think they are the guardians of the universe.  His budget will bring about a radical contraction in the federal work force.  It is almost impossible to fire the entrenched these commissars who call themselves civil servants however you can eliminate jobs, programs and agencies thus culling the chaff.

No administration has even proposed such massive cuts since the end of WW II.  The groundbreaking budget that President Trump is set to unveil on Thursday offers a clear vision of how he plans to fulfill his promise to drain the swamp. It speaks volumes about his idea about what should be the size and role of government.  The president sees the budget process producing a new Washington.  This will not be an imperial capital.  Instead it would return to its role as a working center for a reasonable central government in a federal republic.

This would be a government prioritizing the military and homeland security.  It would be one that slashes other areas it has intruded into such as housing, foreign aid, environmental control, and public broadcasting.  This would be a government much that is smaller and much less involved in regulating the everyday life of Americans.  It would also be a government where the States have a much bigger role as is fitting in a federal republic.

According to Robert Reischauer, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, “These are not the kind of cuts that you can accommodate by tightening the belt one notch, by shaving a little bit off of a program, or by downsizing a few staff here or there. These are cuts that would require a wholesale triage of a vast array of federal activities.”

This is what we voted for!  This is keeping your promises.  If only Schumer, McCain and the rest of the Progressives of the twin headed bird of prey that is the government party will get out of the way and let We the People get what we voted for.

It might be educational to remember that the last person elected who vowed to drain the swamp or as he called it bring about a New Federalism was Richard M. Nixon and we all know how that worked out.  Or do we?

Look back and ignore the deep throated spiel of the court historians and read The Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin and expose yourself to the only place that tells the other side of that story.  Let’s pray this does not happen again and even though the gators, snakes, and weasels may not like it we finally get to drain the swamp.

Trump Will Triumph Over Traitors Too March 6, 2017

Today We the People are faced with a situation that is unique in our 241 year history.

Never before has a former president plotted to undermine and depose his successor.  The evidence is pouring in.  His political handler Valerie Jarrett has moved into the ex-president’s palatial mansion in the posh Kalorama section of Washington into the war room for his bid to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.  His goal is to either force The Donald to resign or see him impeached.  This is the center of the web, funded by the international monetary pirate George Soros to overturn the results of the recent election.

Professional agitators and bused in gangs have been running riot all over the country protesting the election results and attacking Trump supporters.  The Media propaganda machine is doing their best to make them look like a majority of the country.  Some state legislators are attempting to pass laws that would use criminal conspiracy and racketeering statutes to combat these counterfeit grass roots demonstrations and violence.

The bureaucratic nomenclature or as they call themselves, “The Permanent Government,” what Rush calls the Deep State or the Fusion Party, or as I call them the twin headed bird of prey is dedicated to negating the votes of millions and tossing the results of the recent election into the dust bin of History.  The media megaphone trumpets the need for a return to the status quo and this serves as the personal opinion of the Kool-Aide drinking fellow travelers.

We who voted to drain the swamp stand in watch as the ship of state runs aground on the reef of bureaucratic inertia.

We are witnessing an unprecedented assault on the Grand Old Republic.  Uncle Sam is attempting to drown Yankee Doodle in leaks, red tape, legislative slight-of-hand, and lies.  Ex-president Obama is orchestrating this so-called resistance. The hold overs from his administration are doing everything they can to throw monkey wrenches into the gears of government.  Now with his Consigliere ensconced in his own home to help coordinate the creeping nation-wide coup the pace is about to increase.  His ex-Attorney General, best remembered for meeting Bill Clinton on a runway while supposedly investigating his wife, is calling for marching, blood, and death in the streets.

All of this is nothing less than a criminal conspiracy, a combination of political hacks, crony capitalists, and their media minions plotting the overthrow of the government.  Nothing less than an attack on the very essence of everything America stands for.

Don’t despair.  Don’t let the constant drumbeat of the Media Megaphone and their fake news get you down.  Remember November 2016 should have proved to even the most doubtful, prayer works and this too shall pass.

Keep the Faith.  Keep the Peace.  We shall overcome.

Trumpism and American Sovereignty March 1, 2017

For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN.  Their four horseman of the American apocalypse; George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like.  From NAFTA to TPP from the WTO to the T-TIP they have sought every opportunity to enroll us as just one more state in their fever dream of a super state with them in control.

Currently the United States has free trade agreements in force with 20 countries. These are:

The interesting thing about most of these agreements is that while we allow goods from these countries to enter our nation duty-free and compete with our own manufacturers our partners do not.  They have various mechanisms to make sure our goods cannot compete in their markets.  They add tariffs by any other name top our goods as the arrive and give subsidies to their goods as they leave.

This anything but level playing field that our leaders have subjected us to is economically the equivalent of playing Russian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol.  It may be exciting but there isn’t any way to win.

Not only have we surrendered our ability to add tariffs to protect our markets against foreign disruption and the eventual destruction of our industrial base we have witnessed.  It also deprives the federal government of a source of revenue which was once enough to run the whole affair without an income tax.  It is not only these two negatives which point out the bad side of this bad deal.  Our globalist leaders have also signed agreements that make American enterprises and individuals subject to the edicts of the bewildering array of organizations and boards which make up the strands designed to hold the American Gulliver down.

Finally in President Donald Trump we have a leader who wants to put America first!  Finally we have a leader who is not dedicated to managing our decline but instead dedicated to our renewal.  We have chosen a leader not to lead us gentle into that good night.  Today we no longer must look at the sun setting upon us.  Today we can see a new sun rise, a new morning in America.  Instead of a leader who apologizes for our History we have a leader who proudly proclaims we will make America great again.

Case in Point:

According to the Financial Times, President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to ignore any rulings by the World Trade Organization that it sees as an affront to U.S. sovereignty.

According to the Times the report says, “Ever since the United States won its independence, it has been a basic principle of our country that American citizens are subject only to laws and regulations made by the U.S. government — not rulings made by foreign governments or international bodies.”  The report continued, “Accordingly, the Trump administration will aggressively defend American sovereignty over matters of trade policy.”

The Wall Street Journal also reviewed the document.  They stated that the policy represents a dramatic departure from the Obama administration, which emphasized international economic rules and the authority of the WTO, a body that regulates trade and resolves disputes among its members.  The report also states that the Trump Administration will use, “all possible sources of leverage to encourage other countries to open up their markets.”

This is akin to a Second Declaration of Independence.  No more will we continue to surrender our sovereignty, the sovereignty our ancestors, our brothers and our sisters have bled and died to establish and protect be diluted in the committees of nameless faceless bureaucrats where America has no more voice than El Salvador.

Strike up the band!  Wave the flags.  A campaign became a movement.  A movement became a revolution.  And this revolution is determined to make America great again!

We Battle Not Against Flesh and Blood February 27, 2017

There are many of us who believe that prayer played a major part in the upset victory of Donald Trump last November.

He may not be a born again Christian. And he may not be one who believes in miracles.  As a person who grew up in the church of Norman Vincent Peale he is the personification of that minister’s theological doctrine of positive thinking.  Like Robert Schuller of Crystal Cathedral fame, or any of the word of faith, gab-it-and-grab-it, believe to receive crowd The Donald believes the words of his mouth have power to shape the world around him.

Anyone who sees the result of being positive as opposed to being negative knows there is much real world sense to this belief.  Is the glass half empty or is it half full?

As spirit-filled born again believers we know that it isn’t about who we are it is all about what He has done and it isn’t about what we have done it is all about who He is.  We know that prayer is the answer and faith is the key.  We know that God can use any tool to accomplish His purpose.

We also know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  And in this struggle we know that a thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand but it shall not come near us if we keep our eyes on Him.

So as we watch our president surrounded by the Progressive Fusion Party of Democrats, Republicans, courts, and media don’t despair.  Don’t return to the couch and think, “We voted him in now we can go back to sleep.”  Now is the time to do battle in the heavenlies.  This Hail Mary victory pass shall not stand unless we hit our knees.  We must hold the president and our nation up in prayers.  Pray confusion into the counsel of the enemy, pray that President Trump has the courage and strength to stand for America when everyone around him is proclaiming they are citizens of the world and that America should be just another state in a UN dominated new world order.

The nation state is what won in November.  The globalist conspiracy was thwarted at the very moment when they thought the last nail would be driven into our coffin.  They had victory snatched out of their talons and they are going berserk as the rail against the last gasp of American independence.

Many of these advocates of global centralization and the authoritarianism it would need to re-distribute the world’s goods claim to be atheists.  They are actually devotees of humanism, worshipers of self.  In other words those who have bitten the apple and listened to the siren song of the serpent, “you will be like God.”

And we also know God has promised, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”  If we will do that, if we will turn from this world and embrace Him then we shall receive the benefit of those who wait on the Lord.  We shall renew our strength.  We shall mount up with wings like eagles.  We shall run and not be weary.  We shall walk and not faint.

So why worry when we can pray?

Trump and the Deep State February 22, 2017

Words have meaning.  A word is a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation that functions as a principal carrier of meaning.  Rush Limbaugh is a master of the English language in my opinion on a par with Winston Churchill and is the undisputed American master of quips, labeling, and metaphors.

As if to prove the point, Rush has once again coined a phrase that sums up a cultural phenomenon.  He has dubbed those Progressives embedded within the federal bureaucracy the Deep State.  This label perfectly describes those protected by the civil service acts as well as those political appointees who might be termed BHO holdovers.

The commentary flowing from the Attila the Hun Chair through the golden microphone recently shines a spotlight on the fact that the Praetorian Guard of the establishment are working overtime to overthrow the results of the recent election.

There is something reminiscent of Yogi Berra’s famous “Déjà vu all over again” in all of this.  It reminds me of the last president who was vocal about trying to drain the swamp.  Richard Nixon set out to reform the alphabet soup of agencies that supposedly provide the government with intelligence.  It turned into a game of who gets who first.  The entire Watergate debacle was populated by ex-CIA and ex-FBI agents. The CIA reports were withheld from everyone until the deed had been done, a president overthrown, and everyone involved safely out with the usual federal golden parachute of a plumb pension with a Cadillac package.

To catch lightening in a jar and see how this was all engineered and orchestrated see the seminal book The Silent Coup by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin.  This is the only book that tells the other side of the Watergate myth.

If you consume the bilge being belched out by the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC Cartel you would think that our president was attempting to establish a rule by decree imperial presidency.  That is what we have had for the last eight years.  That is what he was elected to replace with a government that governs as opposed to rule.  And that is what the Deep State is trying their best to avoid.  A government of the people, by the people, and for the people is as about as far from what we have had as you can get.  That is what we voted for.  That is what our President is trying to deliver and that is what the preprogrammed, prepaid protestors with their fill-in-the-blank signs are trying to prevent.

However you call it; the Country Party versus the Government Party, the Perpetually Re-elected Versus the Flyover Country, or Them versus Us it all adds up to one thing a nation divided.

Leave it to Rush to coin a name for that twin headed bird of prey, the government party of power, the Fusion Party.  These are two gangs of political hacks plundering the producers of this country bound together by their contempt for us and their greed.   They are bound and determined that they will not allow any motley collection of voters get between them and their swag.

The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC Cartel continues its onslaught against America’s president.  The Hollywood elites pile on.  Award show after award show turns into nothing more than an opportunity and platform to trash the President Trump.

The late night comedians are seen as valid social commentators by so many of the fellow-travelers.  They seem to think the opinions of the writers of jokes and the producers of skits tell them all they need to know about current events.

Unelected black robed hacks usurp the authority of the Commander-in-Chief and don’t even pretend it has anything to do with the law, or the Constitution, or common sense.

Since the Judicial Plutocrats thwarted the will of the people as expressed in Mr. Trump’s refugee pause research tells us 77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries.

Contrary to the propaganda broadcast from the media wing of the Democrat Party, i.e. the Cartel according to the Washington Examiner:

Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump‘s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism, bolstering the administration’s immigration ban.

According to a report out Saturday, at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as “students,” and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens.

The Center for Immigration Studies calculated the numbers of convicted terrorists from the Trump Seven:

— Somalia: 20

— Yemen: 19

— Iraq: 19

— Syria: 7

— Iran: 4

— Libya: 2

And just since the temporary Refugee ban has been held captive by the courts of injustice 1,049 refugees from these seven nations have been rushed into the country by the Progressive bureaucrats who dwell in the bowls of the beast.

Our President is surrounded by sharks who will perpetually pretend there is blood in the water.  We must support him!  We must let him know that he is not alone in the battle to Make America Great Again.  It was our voted that sent him there and we must let him know we are still here.  We haven’t nodded back into the game and returned to the couch for a snooze until the next election.

We are too busy working to counter the professional agitators and full-time protestors recruited and paid for by the Soros Anti-Liberty League.  So we must do what we can.  Send the President a message and let him know that you support him and you are there.

Don’t delay do it today.
