Clearing the Air – Politically Speaking

Speaking to a graduating university class in 2017, President Trump said, “It’s a very imperfect world, and you can’t always choose your friends. That’s life. But you can never fail to recognize your enemies.”

An elderly grandmother once said to her grandson, “Not everyone who calls you friend is your friend”.

Several years ago I once asked a friend to remove a tag line from his emails on an official group server and you’d a thought I had declared war. My friend called me every un-American name you could think of and a few months later he was dead. I often wonder was it because of my simple request? I’ll never know.

There are those who think that I believe I’m always right.

They read my blogs and think that I consider myself smarter than anyone else.

Well believe me, I’m not. In fact I have been wrong more times than I have ever been right and I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the smartest lightbulb in the pack.

That being said when I feel I’m right I will not bow to the court of public opinion or remain silent.

After doing my due diligence, a bit of investigation to assert the facts (not the opinions of others) and if I feel that I’m right – all bets are off.

God didn’t say we had to like everybody and there are a lot of people I don’t like. I place those people on my mental list of people I’m not fond of, strive not to let their names, faces or remarks come before my eyes or ears.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, someone called a Christian I must not forget the words that Jesus said in Luke 10:27:

So he answered and said, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.” (NKJV)

It has taken me a lifetime to get comfortable in my own skin.

During my military career I didn’t get political. My job as a platoon sergeant was to accomplish the mission while taking care of my troops. I’m proud of accomplishing that task in a variety of duty assignments in a host of different places and countries.

After retiring from the military I took an active interest to make sure I was registered to vote, and I took pains to head down to the local precinct polling place to cast my ballot. Although the elections didn’t always turn out the way I wanted, I had the satisfaction of knowing that I had done my civic duty.

During the Obama-Biden race I voted from Romney-Palin and began to see firsthand how the political spin pitted (compared) Obama to Palin, rather than Romney. It seemed odd as both candidates had been political contemporaries in the US Senate at the same time. I saw how Hillary had been eclipsed by Obama and everyone was swooning over the first African-American president, who went on the get the Nobel Peace Prize for what he was expected to do. I took notice when Osama Bin Laden was taken out by black operations operators and Obama took full credit (after all he was the CIC). What took the cake was when Biden publicly named Seal Team Six and it wasn’t long before that team was targeted and taken out. I took notice when on 9/11/12 the US Embassy was attacked in Benghazi and left to fend for themselves against a horde of terrorists. Team Obama chalked it up to a video and forgot about it.

During the Hillary-Trump race I didn’t hesitate and voted against Hillary (that’s how democrats vote, right). I watched the RNC debates as well as the debates between Trump and Hillary. I saw again how the political deck of cards was stacked to get the best possible outcome for Hillary, only it didn’t turn out the way she thought and the world would never be the same again.

After Trump became the President-elect his photo op with President Obama was a prop. I mean Obama smiling and wishing Trump good luck with his presidency, while behind the scenes Obama was playing both ends against the middle (Trump was the middle) engaging in dirty politics with the infamous Russian Collusion hoax. Congress went into TDS mode of resistance, the media latched on real quick in a concerted effort to oust this political newcomer from public office, saying Trump was unfit to be president.

During Trump’s four years in office, there was a constant attack upon his character, his family, his administration and never was any credit given to his accomplishments at home or abroad. House Speaker Pelosi overstepped her bounds of authority by impeaching Trump twice, and he was exonerated each time. When Trump wanted to fix immigration laws, congress refused; Trump wanted to build the wall, congress blocked and the media ran these fake news stories; when the Chinese Virus came to America, Trump went into high gear to bring government and private industry together to fill the void.

It was like a dance one step forward and two steps back.

During the Trump – Biden race it was the craziest thing you ever saw. Trump’s campaign filled stadiums while Biden stayed in his basement or spoke before some mostly empty chairs. Election night when the poles closed in Hawaii the poles showed Trump dramatically ahead, yet the next morning had those numbers flipped for Biden. Trump contested the results of the election and the battle to contest was met with political flim-flam. Biden declared his office of the president-elect even before the Electoral College had cast their ballots. D-Day was January 6th, 2021 where the EC ballots were presented and verified before a joint session of congress.

J6 had been proclaimed as the day of Trump’s rally to encourage everyone to watch the election process at work in the Capital Building so that congress knew the eyes of the nation were upon them.

J6 was a day orchestrated by Antifa to disrupt the crowd at the Capital Building by posing as MAGA folks and once inside create havoc. This was an overshadowing of the MAGA crowd just as they had done during the peaceful protests in Minneapolis.

J6 became VE-Day as the civil unrest (disturbance at the Capital) resulting in the death of MAGA supporter Ashli Babbitt and began the misinformation about Trump orchestrating the violence.

Congress responded by calling in the National Guard, fencing around the Capital and calling for the FBI to hunt down every MAGA supporter who went to Washington on J6, to be incarcerated indefinitely without bail or access to legal counsel (They’re still there).

The Biden presidency has seen the wall construction stopped; the XL Pipeline construction stopped; Oil production curtailed, national oil reserves being depleted; Southern border opened and unvetted migrants being distributed secretly and at night throughout the nation; US troops abandoning military bases, equipment and even American citizens and our allies to the hands of the Taliban – by Biden’s direct order.

Our nation is suffering and divided almost beyond the point of no return, the mid-term elections are almost here and the Congress is using the same playbook in front of House cameras in their attempt to find Trump guilty and prevent him from running in 2024 or for any office in the future.

Do I think I’m always right? Not at all!

Am I right about who is dividing our nation, brothers against brothers, families against each other, and veteran against veteran?

We are seeing illegal immigrants being brought into our country from virtually everywhere in the world to what end? It is never for the good of our country when you must violate the Constitutional rule of law to achieve your political goals.

A nation without border security or election integrity will cease to remain a nation at all!

It is the constitutional rights of citizens to vote. It is the duty of citizens to vote responsibly.

Democrat promises of free stuff are simply traps to enslave.

Republican promises for the return to law and order and national security can reverse the slide into obscurity.

United in Purpose or divided into Chaos. –
