I’ve been called many things over the years. Some may be true, while others are clearly spewed out of hatred or based on ignorance due to a misperception of erroneous misinformation. Let’s just say I’m a constitutional activist or what I call a Constitutionalist.
I have lived through America’s historical events after the Second World War. I was a year old when the forgotten war began in Korea.
During my upbringing in the farmlands of Southwestern Idaho I wasn’t much of the studious type. I paid little attention to US or World history until it touched me personally. I remember the assassination of JFK and how the nation mourned.
I came of age during the Vietnam War in Southeast Asia and found myself serving in that unpopular war. What made it unpopular were a combination of greedy politicians and the antiwar movement of the American pop culture of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
I chose the path of a soldier serving overseas in countries where we had a military presence. I remember the many attacks on our citizens and our military both overseas and from within the continental United States. They were the attacks I had sworn to defend against.
As I prepared to return home from more than 22 years of military service our nation was preparing to go to war against Saddam Hussain’s Republican Guard. Operation Desert Storm ended almost before it had begun, yet Saddam lived to continue his reign of terror in Iraq and in the region.
The events of 9/11 shook the nation and the world. It would never been the same again. I remember because my work was directly affected by it. What really got my attention was when I heard an active duty soldier openly cursing the president in a public setting. It was taboo and a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The media had already begun attacking the president on 9/11 and there was no pushback from the public or from our government.
Eight years later America elected a young charismatic Barack Obama and it seemed the world was his oyster and the media adored him. His Executive Orders were like the first I had ever heard of them. His DACA circumvented Congress in an unconstitutional fashion because he felt they were too slow to act on immigration. Remember – he had been for 8 years a Senator and knew perfectly well how quickly congress took to act. He transformed the Executive Branch into a maze of “Czars” to circumvent the requirement to be confirmed by congress. His cabinet reported through the Czar to the president.
I began taking an interest in the Constitution and actions by the president and congress that were blatantly unconstitutional. I even wrote articles (before I had begun blogging) and posted the Constitution online in segments so as to make people aware of what was going on.
The events of 9/11/2012 brought a rude awakening as I heard of the cries for help coming from Benghazi, but no cavalry came to their rescue. It cost the lives of 4 Americans – one US Ambassador Stevens. We were told many lies in attempts to cover up the fact that President Barack Obama and his administration failed to respond appropriately or quickly and in 13 hours it was over. Never in my military career had I witnessed a failed or non-response such as that.
The next America crisis came in 2017 when a non-politician was sworn in as president. Even before his inauguration the Congress and the media had declared an all-out war on Donald Trump. I won’t list all the nonsense except to say that TDS was on steroids in America. It lasted 4 years and with 2 impeachments without substantial evidence of wrong doing, simply fueled by hatred from the Democratic left. The final straw was the 2020 election irregularities that were overlooked by the states and by the courts, while they pushed a false narrative of an “office of the president-elect” which there clearly was not, and a 46th President which there still is not – until tomorrow when another great stolen election will be officially declared – DONE!
Some are threatened, others are intimidated while a vast majority are unaffected by my writings. America is collectively a forgetful nation. We forget the bad times unless it is politically expedient. Have we learned nothing of the past 240 years? Do we not know that politicians are elected to represent us – “we the people”?
The main stream and social media have declared war on Americans in an unprecedented manner of taking “Chicago Politics” to a new level. Not only are threats, intimidation, violence and murder, even online “lynching” of those who swim upstream against the authorized train of thought.
Call me what you will. I am not your conscience. I am a Constitutionalist. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
