An Undercurrent of Mounting Political Pressure in America



An Undercurrent of Mounting Political Pressure in America


The world in which we live seems to be going through a series of changes that are akin to the forming of a pack of wild wolves that roam their territory in search of prey, once found, cornered are attacked by the entire pack in a feeding frenzy until the kill has been made. In the hierarchy of the pack the Alpha Male has first choice consuming his fill. Lessor males and females anxiously await their turn and fight each other for dominance and the right to their fair share. The scraps go to the rest.


There is an undercurrent of mounting political pressure in America that changes the face of humanity before our eyes just as absolute corruption corrupts absolutely and the insanity of politics is complete and total madness. It is the way of gangs, groups and political entities. The leader leads and the followers follow until in the midst of a feeding frenzy as mob rule overtakes normal common sense.


In American politics we have two major political parties Democrats and Republicans. They operate very differently, but have ultimately the same end game. The Democratic Party is the party “of the people” in rhetoric only. They use intimidation tactics, the lure of free stuff and threats to keep voters engaged and on the voter rolls. The Republican Party is the party “protecting the rights of the people” while defending the Constitution against assaults from domestic and international terrorists. They appeal to the people to defend their rights, stand for the rule of law and fight against lawlessness. How different are their messages, yet many would rather die than switch, even when faced with insane and irrational thoughts from the left.


Maybe we should take a look at definitions to clearly see whether certain political trains of thought are still on the track at all. According to several differing online sources we will examine the definition of insanity.


According to the Oxford Dictionary – Insanity is a state of being seriously mentally ill; madness; mental illness; mental disorder; mental derangement; insaneness; dementia; lunacy; instability; unsoundness of mind; loss of reason; delirium; hysteria; mania; or craziness.


According to Merriam- Webster – Insanity is a severely disordered state of the mind usually occurring as a specific disorder; unsoundness of mind or lack of the ability to understand that prevents one from having the mental capacity required by law to enter into a particular relationship, status, or transaction or that releases one from criminal or civil responsibility; extreme folly; utterly foolish or unreasonable.


According to Merriam- Webster – Insane is exhibiting a severely disordered state of mind: affected with mental illness; affected with insanity; unable to think in a clear or sensible way; crazy insane with jealousy.


According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – Insanity is madness or craziness that describe a spectrum of individual and group behaviors that are characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns. Insanity can be manifest as violations of social norms, including a person or persons becoming a danger to themselves or to other people.


According to – In contemporary usage, the term insanity is an informal, un-scientific term denoting “mental instability”; In English, the word “sane” derives from the Latin adjective sanus meaning “healthy”.  Juvenal’s phrase mens sana in corpore sano is often translated to mean a “healthy mind in a healthy body”.  From this perspective, insanity can be considered as poor health of the mind, not necessarily of the brain as an organ (although that can affect mental health), but rather refers to defective function of mental processes such as reasoning.


A more informal use of the term insanity is to denote something or someone considered highly unique, passionate or extreme, including in a positive sense. The term may also be used as an attempt to discredit or criticize particular ideas, beliefs, principles, desires, personal feelings, attitudes, or their proponents, such as in politics and religion. Thecondition of being insane; a derangement of themind: Legally – suchunsoundness of mind as freesonefromlegalresponsibility, as forcommitting a crime, or as signalsone’slack of legalcapacity, as forenteringinto a contractualagreement.

Psychosis – extreme foolishness; folly; senselessness; foolhardiness; a foolish or senseless action, policy, statement, etc.


I know that’s a lot to digest but in today’s political climate what is coming across in an attempt to appeal to voters are an entire series of things from Abortion is a woman’s reproductive choice; Free medical, housing, education, and food for those who come here illegally and they have the right to vote; Sanctuary cities and states are protecting illegals; Gender is what one feels they are; Immigration is a right; Upholding US law is unconstitutional; and the biggie is Trump is in a cover up by declassifying documents related to the Mueller investigation after battling almost 3 years of false allegations of Russian Collusion.


Is it not time to take a step back and ask what happened to the safety and security of the American people and the sovereignty of the United States of America? The upcoming 2020 Presidential Election will be the most decisive election in American history. With all the blatant corruption in the US Congress unless voters see through the smoke and mirrors and begin voting corrupt officials out of office nothing will substantially improve until political correctness is abolished completely! – I am the Real Truckmaster!



The Problem with Democratic Capitalism




The Problem with Democratic Capitalism


Many others have written pros and cons of capitalism as it pertains with our country and its relationship with the world order but I’d like to make a case for the single most problem with capitalism – Greed.


The US is a perfect example of what capitalism brings to a society. Take entrepreneurs who take a vision, an idea and bring it to life. It takes more than that, it takes a love for God who created everything; a love for family for whom we each strive to protect and raise to become good upstanding citizens; and it takes 100% of one’s entire focus, time and finances. It is living the American Dream with hard work and pouring oneself into that vision so that it becomes our way of life.


People who use capitalism for ulterior purposes actually undermine our way of life by using terms like democracy or democratic which seem “fair minded” and lead one to thinking that one size fits all is a really great idea for government. Those same people misidentify our country as simply a Democracy where the one in charge of the government is the one responsible for taking care of all of its problems.


Even the very beginning of the word Democracy is the root word – Demon. Thus one could surmise that a Democracy is simply a Demon controlled government. The love of money is the root of all manner of evil and a Democracy is channeling that love of money through very select hands at or very near the top, while stripping it from those who work hard to earn it. The very first way is when money is taken from the poor through a process called taxes and filters UP to those with huge coffers (banks) and used to “take care of” everyone equally. Remember one size fits all? In reality the ones who are taken care of are the ones in charge.


Historically we have numerous examples where capitalism in a Democracy fails in every case. Today we can see countries like North Korea (DPRK), Cuba, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar (Burma) and even nearby Venezuela where total Democracy leads to Socialism and Communism. Even infused with certain portions of Capitalism the people suffer greatly as those at the top use money as power over the people who suffer greatly. At the very foundation of our nation those problems were addressed and in great detail because history shows us that Democracies simply do not work well for anyone except those at the very top and at the expense of everyone else.


Our nation was not founded as a Democracy, but as a Constitutional-Republic where the Rule of Law (Law of the Land) comes from the US Constitution where ultimate power is retained by the people (citizens). The power of the government is restricted by the Constitution. When the government becomes unresponsive to the people the Constitution provides a means to dissolve and reform the government.


We are at this point today in 2019, there are those in power who feel they are superior to the people they were elected to represent. They flaunt their political power and use all manner of ways and means to insure that their power is not interrupted. The guiding force behind their abusive power is political correctness and through its misuse right becomes wrong and wrong becomes right in their eyes.


Do not be deceived and let not your heart be troubled because the single most important factor in the lives of mankind is the love of the creator God from whom everything was created. When a people lose sight of who God is and chose to remove him from every facet of their lives it will not end well.


Not everyone who comes here is seeking a “do over” from the maladies of life in their home countries. There are those who are like leaches that see opportunity. They are the greedy and power hungry who channel others for their own personal gain. They are aided by those inside our country and inside our government who have been struck by that same greed. Left unchallenged they pose a greater threat to the stability of our nation by insisting that THEIR WILL not ours be done as they seek to remove freedom and liberty and replace them with their failed Social Democratic ideas. There is a reason men, women and children come to this nation seeking a better life and maybe that reason is simply God calling them to become his people? As a nation we must return to God as our defender and protector. We must seek his face, trust his word and become obedient to what God has called us to be a light upon a hill that will draw all men unto him. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Why the Prolonged Push for Impeachment?




Why the Prolonged Push for Impeachment?


Have you ever wondered about that or is it just me? We’ve been hearing it for the past 2 plus years and it started up in earnest just before the mid-term elections. It’s like the neighbors kid out in the garage making music with a single drum……bam…..bam…..bam……bam over and over and over until you either become sensitized to it or call the cops.


So why in 2019 is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still in the garage with that drum? And why is Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer acting as her wingman? Is there some other agenda being “covered up” and we just can’t see it?


Let’s take a step back and relook at certain events from our most recent past. After President Trump was elected he held the infamous January meeting with congressional leaders to discuss some of the president’s important issues and then House Minority Leader Pelosi made an odd comment about Trump not realizing how much importance she brings to this meeting. That was just before Trump cancelled the meeting.


Ever since then Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader Schumer have led the charge of the light-headed brigade in their ongoing feud against President Trump. They have repeatedly threatened Trump with impeachment, over and over and over again and again. So much so that after the 2018 mid-term elections and Pelosi became House Speaker her call became louder and more frequent. Some might even call it an obsession.


Today I’ve had face-to-face conversions with one of my Republican friends and one of my Democratic friends and in each case the subject of impeachment has come up. As we discussed the pros and cons of it a new revelation became apparent.


It is my belief that the reason that House Speaker Pelosi who is #3 in the line of succession has been so adamant about not only impeaching the President, but also the Vice President. Guess where that would put her……….in the White House! Yup and just as surely as that would happen guess who would be picked to be her Vice President – Chucky Schumer. Now wouldn’t that be a hoot.


That would do two things immediately, first the House Democrats would have to select another speaker and guess who recently “filled in” for madam speaker – AOC! Also the Senate Democrats would have to select another Minority Leader and maybe Cory Booker is looking to apply for that job or maybe Kamala Harris? But they both have their eyes on the prize of White House occupancy.


I’m thinking on the outside chance of that happening, the nation would sink faster than the Titanic in the middle of the Atlantic.




Congress could quit all the waste and abuse of endless investigations and join the President in a bi-partisan effort to fix what ails the nation and the American citizens. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Have You Bought Into The Lie?



Have You Bought Into The Lie?


The saying “Momma didn’t raise no fool” seems to have been proven false when it comes to present day politics. I’m not naming names or parties but simply watch the latest news feeds, campaign slogans and what is happening across the nation. Everyone’s a liar and nobody’s the wiser.


There are some who think that political figures walk on water and can do no wrong. Granted there are those who all but come out and say they are the “chosen one” and will eradicate all our hurts and life will be so much better…….if you vote for them.


Some of the 2020 presidential hopefuls are promising free tuition if you broke the law and snuck over the border.. I hear some want to give you free healthcare along with a free government check for just providing a valid address of residence and in some cases you can get a free driver’s license without proving you can even drive, and as a bonus a ticket to vote (although it be illegal) in local, state and federal elections.


Others are promising to send you back without that any of that free stuff if you have entered this nation unlawfully.


I’ve watched as politicians say they will legalize prostitution, tear down the wall, disband the Customs and Border Patrol service and throw open the gates of the “promised land” to anyone who comes here regardless of reason or purpose.


Some of the most mind-boggling are those who promise to end tax cuts and raise taxes on the filthy rich. Who in their right mind relishes paying higher taxes to the government? It’s almost funny because many of those advocating for higher taxes for the super-rich are themselves super-rich while working in government as public servants.


Others promise to bring under control Medicare and social security “benefits” because it’s just too costly to care for seniors, unless they have come here illegally and since when are social security payments considered “benefits”? Social Security is paid in by the worker without earning interest and after reaching a point of not being able to work, paid back as installments which in many cases the recipient us unable to collect all funds paid in due to sudden and urgent death.


So I ask “Have you bought into the lie”? Do you believe that those in congress have your best interests in mind? What have they accomplished thus far in their “public service career”?


A simple test is in order:


Have I as a member of congress made life easier, safer and more fulfilling for the voters who voted me into office?


Or have I enriched my own financial portfolio?


Have I truly looked out for the interests of my constituents?


Have I made the United States of America a better place than before I came into political office?


It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon to see which way the wind blows, even on a cloudy day. If you listen to all the rhetoric being spewed by the political left, right or center. If you can see what is happening across the country and will admit that things are bad, but getting better then maybe there’s hope for us yet?


Don’t believe any of the he said or she said or they said about anyone. Listen to them with an open mind. Hear them out completely, not out of context. When you go to the polling booth, it’s just between you and that little piece of paper.

On the Hmong-Americans and the Secret War Documentary

On the American Hmong and the Secret War Documentary


I have a great deal of interest on the Hmong people of Laos who fought for their homeland alongside our American forces against the Communist Lao and Vietnamese armies. So when I came across a CNN special I was excited, enthralled and then enraged as the current political undertones immerged.


The host was a very huge black man who learned what we would call “on-the-job-training” or OJT about who the Hmong were, where they came from and how many of them ended up in Minnesota and other places as refugees. Although many of those presented in the documentary were descendants, the focus was on two families who either fought against the oppressors or escaped as children of those who fought.


My interest is that of one who has met several of the local Lao refugees and a Cambodian refugee family here in Colorado, the Hmong are still being sought out by the Laotian military, not as a tribe, but representing the Americans who fought against them during the war and into the mid-1980s. Even today there are places in Laos where foreigners are forbidden to go due to the continual hunt for and the extermination of the remaining Hmong people.


Let me be clear I have never crossed over the Mekong River into Laos and am a bit apprehensive that I would be detained or never seen again, but that’s just me.


The documentary started out with a man In St. Paul, Minnesota who escaped as an 8 year old child, carrying his brother on his back as his family spent 45 days walking out of Laos and into a refugee camp in Thailand. After 4 years in the refugee camp, he and his family were able to come to the USA and into what is not the Hmong area of St. Paul. I saw a bit of Hmong culture, dress, food and the importance of family, as well as the extent of one man’s method of taking his American born children back to Thailand for an educational experience of a life-time so that they too would come to understand the Hmong culture and the importance of taking care of family and each other.


The last portion of the documentary introduced Hmong politicians and entertainers in the St. Paul area. I was caught off guard (remember it was a CNN documentary) but still the blatant attack of whites and of President Trump in particular as referring to the misinformation of the “Trump Muslim Ban” (which never happened) and on to the South as the black’s “secret war” going on today in America. The Hmong city council member even boasted of his banning of Trump from coming to St. Paul. The documentary trailed off with a political spiel about American troops doing the same thing around the world today of creating and/or maintaining other secret wars. By this point I had stopped watching and even erased the recording I had been making of it for future watching (which won’t happen).


What we all can learn from this documentary and as it pertains to immigration is this.


There is a huge difference from refugees who flee political or religious persecution and apply for acceptance in the USA and are ultimately accepted. They come here and work hard to become successful while taking care of their families and maintaining their cultural history which is passed on through their children.


Take the massive and orchestrated waves of migrants who bombard our border with fake claims of asylum and are turned loose inside our country, many never to be seen again when their immigration status is scheduled before an immigration judge.


Legitimate claims for asylum are normally initiated outside the US, in a safe haven (the first country they encounter after leaving their homeland). The Hmong refugees were taken in at a refugee center in Thailand while they were processed in almost all cases it took years.


There are procedures to be followed for the orderly flow of migrants and/or refugees into the USA. The deliberate flooding of people to the US border is in fact an invasion. Immigration is not a right by any means, but a privilege. Nobody has the right to demand or expect to be admitted into any country they are not a citizen of.


As one who is married to a foreign born national who is now a US citizen, having gone through the process for citizenship, I know full well what legal immigrants bring to this nation. They don’t abandon their culture, but work hard to insure their children become productive members of our society.


All the racial division must stop. It is perpetuated not only by politicians, but exploited by the media at the expense of everyone. Merit based immigration is the only way to insure that everyone brings something to the table of contribution in our society. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Jaded – How Did We Get This Way?



Jaded – How Did We Get This Way?


I’m reminded of the story of the lobster in the pot of water placed over a fire. At first the water becomes warm and comfortable. Before long it starts to get quite warm and then as the temperature reaches the boiling point the lobster is past the point of caring until he’s well done.


When I was born Ike was President and Nixon was the Vice President. Both were World War II veterans and America had just come out of a world war and then the Korean War irrupted. They call that the forgotten war because nobody talked about it when they came home.


I was in junior high when Kennedy was elected and assassinated. As I graduated high school our troops had been in Vietnam and coverage of the war was on televisions across the nation and around the world.


We called it the Vietnam War; the Vietnamese called it the American War and history called it the Second Indochina Conflict. Our government sent us to stop the dominoes from falling in Southeast Asia; Hollywood elites made publicity stints into the camps of our enemies and our media stoked the fires of division and hate. Our troops became public enemy #1; called baby killers and distained by the so called educated who distanced themselves from military service. Our Congress ended military funding of the war and our allies suffered greatly as they were defeated by shear overwhelming odds.


In the years that followed our military has been over-taxed around the world by wars and rumors of wars. Those who chastised us upon return from war became the finishing school indoctrinators, tenured college professors and university deans and the shaming of America continues. Protestors of yesteryear became state and national legislators and even a president.


Our country has been attacked overseas and at home and yet our congress lacks the ability or the will to place the American people’s safety and security first. It seems that their only priority is no priorities. They have become mired down in the muddy swamp of political correctness and all that matters to some are power and control over the American people at any cost.


It stands to reason that one doesn’t look to a student to bring about substantive change especially when there is no vision or series of goals to measure accomplishment. It takes an electrician to run electrical wiring to meet code; it takes a mason to properly set concrete; and it takes a builder to build a house that will withstand the elements and the forces of nature. It is desired that a trained paramedic or firefighter show up at the scene of an accident or injury or a police officer stop a robbery.


There are legislators who were elected into political office when John Kennedy was president, have spent their entire lifetime on the public dole and have watched this political pot come to a boil without anything substantive coming out of their work. The have accumulated power and prestige and in many cases a sizable financial bankroll, but cannot close loopholes or fix problems inherent to our current immigration problems. If they are looking into a tunnel, they cannot see any light at the other end and now want us to believe they are the answer?


President Donald Trump has stepped up to the plate, not because he needed anything the Oval Office had to offer, but because he loves America and saw that a change in direction was required to save the nation from destruction. His priority has been to American citizens. His vision has been relentless. He knows how to get results and failure is not an option. America has been given a second chance at restoring prosperity and leadership. Jobs are plentiful and corporations have returned to American soil. Our standing in world affairs has improved dramatically as world leaders know what to expect with President Trump. What exactly is your problem with Trump, his direct straight from the heart talk that hurt your feelings? Maybe he threatened to take away your favorite toy?


There are so many failed politicians who really do think they are all that and a bag of chips. They think because Trump did it, they can do it better. They think because they are qualified they are therefore the best choice for America. They are not.


I have looked through the list of presidential candidates for the upcoming 2020 election and some are running just to be running. Others are going to give it their best shot against Trump. Still others are in the race because they can. I have not seen, heard or read one single candidate who has the experience, fortitude or vision or can even articulate a viable plan for a better America; not one!


We have become so jaded that we believe everything we hear, see or read. What I have heard is Stop Trump; free stuff & vote for me! That’s it.


Everything else is just rambling, higher taxes – who wants to pay more taxes? Socialism – who doesn’t see Venezuela failing before your eyes? Climate Change – The climate changes constantly, but nothing even radical will keep it from naturally changing. Trying to link Women’s rights to justify abortion – is ludicrous. Murdering a child in the womb or after birth is still Murder.


No person has the right to end the life of another, for convenience or any other reason. Even in instances of rape or unplanned sex. The only protected sex is NO SEX until after marriage between a man and a woman.  God creates life and every life has a purpose. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


The Peter Principle At Work in America


The Peter Principle At Work in America


The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory formulated by educator Laurence J. Peter and published in 1969. It states that the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate’s performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and “managers rise to the level of their incompetence”.


The goings on across America, in Local, State and Federal Government show how the Peter Principle is alive and well throughout the United States of America.


Look at the striving for a better America by President Trump and the type and level of resistance from the Legislative and Judicial Branches of Government, at federal, state and local levels where government officials act as they are above the law and cannot be touched.


The names are too numerous to list here, but take any “news” article from any media source on any given day and you can see where certain individuals in elected or appointed positions fit into the hierarchy as defined by these Peter Principle Quotes by Laurence J. Peter


“Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Good followers do not become good leaders.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“In most hierarchies, super-competence is more objectionable than incompetence.” He warned that extremely skilled and productive employees often face criticism, and are fired if they don’t start performing worse. Their presence “disrupts and therefore violates the first commandment of hierarchical life: the hierarchy must be preserved.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Any government, whether it is a democracy, a dictatorship, a communistic or free enterprise bureaucracy, will fall when its hierarchy reaches an intolerable state of maturity.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“As individuals we tend to climb to our levels of incompetence. We behave as though up is better and more is better, and yet all around us we see the tragic victims of this mindless escalation.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“A staff increase may produce a temporary improvement, but the promotion process eventually produces its effect on the newcomers and they, too, rise to their levels of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Three Observations

1) The computer may be incompetent in itself—that is, unable to do regularly and accurately the work for which it was designed. This kind of incompetence can never be eliminated, because the Peter Principle applies in the plants where computers are designed and manufactured.

2) Even when competent in itself, the computer vastly magnifies the results of incompetence in its owners or operators.

3) The computer, like a human employee, is subject to the Peter Principle. If it does good work at first, there is a strong tendency to promote it to more responsible tasks, until it reaches its level of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Slump, and the world slumps with you. Push and you push alone.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Many a man, under the old and the new systems, has made the upward step from candidate to legislator, only to achieve his level of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Employees in a hierarchy do not really object to incompetence (Peter’s Paradox): they merely gossip about incompetence to mask their envy of employees who have Pull.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“All, from police forces to armed forces, are rigid hierarchies of salaried employees, and all are necessarily cumbered with incompetents who cannot do their existing work, cannot be promoted, yet cannot be removed.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“He must examine his objectives and see that true progress is achieved through moving forward to a better way of life, rather than upward to total life incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“In time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out its duties.”
Laurence J. Peter


“The efficiency of a hierarchy is inversely proportional to its Maturity Quotient, M.Q. MQ = No. of employees at level of incompetence × 100 Total no. of employees in hierarchy. Obviously, when MQ reaches 100, no useful work will be accomplished at all.”  ― Laurence J. Peter


“Nobody understands how the incessant pressure from above and the incurable incompetence below make it utterly impossible for me to do an adequate job and keep a clean desk.” ― Laurence J. Peter



“Know, all the good that individuals find, Or God and Nature meant to mere Mankind, Reason’s whole pleasure, all the joys of Sense, Lie in three words, Health, Peace, and Competence.  (Ibid., 11. 77–80)” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Incompetence,” he argued, “knows no barrier of time or place.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Given enough time—and assuming the existence of enough ranks in the hierarchy—each employee rises to, and remains at, his level of incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“The more conceited members of the race think in terms of an endless ascent—or promotion ad infinitum. I would point out that, sooner or later, man must reach his level of life-incompetence.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Such an extreme policy will not be generally tolerated. So, to avoid the accumulation of incompetents, administrators have evolved the plan of promoting everyone, the incompetent as well as the competent. They find psychological justification for this policy by saying that it spares students the painful experience of failure.” ― Laurence J. Peter


“Man’s First Mistake: The Wheel” ― Laurence J. Peter
