And The List Grows On

And The List Grows On

Long before the internet with Facebook and Twitter I remember compiling a mental list of entertainers I would no longer be paying attention to, based on their attitude, politics, religious beliefs or speech. One of the early ones was Barbara Streisand. It’s been so long ago that not only does her opinion matter, and I’ve forgotten what it was? It’s a shame because she’s a good singer and actress but like others who followed in her footsteps suffer the same fate as they become casualties of themselves.

Somewhere over the years Whoopi Goldberg went on my list. I loved her character in the Sister Act and other movies but like entertainers who achieve fortune and fame they succumb to the swollen head syndrome. Her claim to fame is cemented on The View with Joy and the others who somehow feel the world revolves around them.

By now the list is quite long and exhaustive with really good actors, musicians and entertainers who are so full of themselves that they can no longer relate to life outside their own aurora. Names like Elton John, Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen and the rap crap pack (who carry dishonor around like a badge).  

There are movie producers like little Robbie what is his name….Reiner, that starred with Carroll O’Connor back in the day? See how that goes – out of sight, out of mind. It’s good to have selective memory at times like these.

I guess sports figures are like that too. They get into professional sports and are all into themselves and how valuable and indispensable they are that they want more money, sponsors falling all over them and they have the bling-bling, wine, women and lots of em. They drive expensive cars, live in mansions and by the time they are just about grown up enough, it’s all gone. Some go into sports-casting as announcers and maybe judging officials, before ending up selling life insurance or the latest prescription medication designed to stop that rheumatoid arthritis.

High school friends can be like that too sometimes, they’re all around when growing up, but say 40 years later – where are they? What have they become? During my 20th year reunion most of my classmates were bald fat guys with their own business ventures. The gals had changed a lot too. I almost didn’t recognize them, but hey I didn’t remember their names back then either.

The thing that never changes is family. Well we don’t really change we just age gracefully and remember our nicknames for each other and the pranks we used to play (the ones that got us the “switch”). There are lots of new family members – cousins, aunts, uncles and some we’re sure aren’t related but then again, maybe they are the face of our “new normal” family. A few years ago I was shopping in an office supply place back home. The cashier saw my last name on my credit card and said “Hey that’s my last name too”. I questioned her about her family ties maybe to mine but never made the connection although I still feel our family tree had more branches than a bramble bush (google it).

Just remember you’re never too important to become obsolete or outdated. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Right to Peaceably Assemble

The Right to Peaceably Assemble

How many of the protest marchers actually know why they are marching and what are their expected results? Everything has become a “cause” and demanding “police reform” without substance is simply people walking down a road with no purpose. It is like a child that doesn’t want to eat their vegetables walking outside and demanding “parent reform” without any idea what that even means.

First Amendment to the United States Constitution

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution#Establishment_of_religion

“First Amendment” redirects here. For other uses, see First Amendment (disambiguation).

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that expressly prohibits the United States Congress from making laws “respecting an establishment of religion” or that prohibit the free exercise of religion, infringe the freedom of speech, infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to peaceably assemble, or limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Although the First Amendment only explicitly applies to the Congress, the Supreme Court has interpreted it as applying to the executive and judicial branches. Additionally, in the 20th century, the Supreme Court held that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment applies the limitations of the First Amendment to each state, including any local government within a state.

It’s been said that what is needed is not police reform but educating the public on how to obey the law. The First Amendment guarantees the rights of citizens to peaceably assemble by the Constitution, which is the Law of the Land in the United States. The First Amendment is also guaranteed by the laws of states and local governments. But knowing the law doesn’t automatically give anyone the right to do as they please and call it their 1st Amendment right.

Before planning to peaceably assemble there are certain things that should be done to ensure that concerns are voiced in such a way as to bring about a desired set of results. Gather the facts of what actually happened so that emotion is not the driving force.

Police involved shootings rarely develop out of thin air. Normally there is criminal activity resulting in police involvement. Whether it’s domestic violence, a traffic stop or criminal activity, police respond and are prepared for the expectation of a possible violent encounter. All too often even a simple traffic stop can escalate into a highly tense situation. When a suspect draws a weapon it changes the dynamics of the situation. Once shots have been fired the end result is quite possibly serious injury or death.

Take the recent case of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky where police were serving a warrant for her arrest. Upon knocking on the door and identifying themselves as police with a warrant a third party at the house fired striking a police officer. Police returned fire and Breonna Taylor was hit and died as a result of return fire by police. Rather than wait for the results of a police investigation, mob violence ensued resulting in rioting and subsequent shooting of police officers. A grand jury was convened and found insufficient evidence to charge 2 police officers, but enough to charge 1 police officer. When this information was conveyed to the public by the Kentucky District Attorney it was not accepted and rioting and public protests continued in Louisville and other cities across the nation.

The same thing happened in May 2020 with the death of George Floyd in police custody. Rather than wait for the facts to be made known public anger led to rioting, looting and innocent lives lost in Minneapolis and many other cities across the nation. When the medical examiner released the autopsy results that showed George Floyd died of a drug overdose, not by asphyxiation from the pressure of the police officer’s knee those results were not accepted either. Officers had been fired and charged, but it is very likely they will be vindicated of wrong doing.

Not all incidents of police involved shootings are the result of wrong doing by police. What happened in Los Angeles, California recently was the ambush of two police officers by a lone gunman who walked up on and fired a weapon seriously wounding two officers in a parked and fully marked police cruiser. Mob violence brought a crowd to the hospital emergency room entrance chanting “We hope they die” as they blocked the ER.

There have been other incidents where police have been targeted and attacked by people demonstrating against police violence which clearly demonstrates the need for the public to learn and be aware of what constitutes law abiding versus criminal activity. A majority of police officers killed in 2020 were at the hands of violent criminals, while a majority of the lives lost to gun violence were at the hands of criminals and not due to police violence.

Besides finding out what the facts are, peaceful protest planners must identify the underlying issue and propose corrective action that will ensure these types of incidents are not repeated. Once said corrective action has been evaluated, assessed and implemented just who is going to enforce it? What are appropriate penalties of violating this recommended corrective action? Must it be signed into law at state or federal level? Educate yourself and think things out to the desired conclusion.

We have to start somewhere, so why not start in the home with parents teaching their children respect for themselves and others and teaching the 10 commandments from the bible as the basis for our Rule of Law (Constitution).  Carry this into public and private education where teachers and faculty reinforce the values of right and wrong and what it means to become a responsible individual and a law abiding citizen of our nation. Respect on the job is more than demanding others respect you, but where everyone is required to respect each other. The customer is always right is more than just a saying.

We are all created equal by our creator and endowed with certain inalienable rights – Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness which are stated in our Declaration of Independence. Maybe it’s time to reinforce reading the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States beginning in elementary school instead of sex education with minors? The responsibilities of citizenship begin with me and with you. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Apples to Apples Trump – Biden

9-27-2020

Apples to Apples Trump – Biden

Remember when Barack Obama ran against John McCain in 2008? Well according to the media it was Senator Barack Obama against Governor Sarah Palin and the media began attacking her family while saying that the Obama family was off limits, remember? That was apples to oranges but the media was oblivious.

So keeping this comparison strictly “apples to apples” with 37 days before the 2020 election let us look at Trump and Biden man to man. This should be relatively short and to the point as both campaigns throw political arrows at each other in hopes of corralling the most votes and at least 270 coveted Electoral College votes out of 538 electors. Democratic Presidential Nominee, 47th Vice President Joe Biden from Delaware is challenging the incumbent Republican 45th President Donald Trump now from Florida in the 2020 election taking place on November 3, 2020.

There have been quite a number of manufactured crisis and allegations of misconduct launched against President Trump that have resulted in his impeachment in December 2019 and his acquittal in the Senate trial phase in early 2020 with an accusation of President Trump belittling military and veterans that did not happen. The media, entertainment industry officials and people are quick to label Trump as a bully because of his tactics growing up, while ignoring his generosity to those in need of assistance.

Based on Biden’s recent comments toward Democratic voters calling them liars and dog faced pony soldiers to name a few choice comments it is Biden who seems to be the real bully from the video of Biden threatening the holding of US funding to Ukraine unless a certain prosecutor was fired (investigating a company employing Hunter Biden) or the recently released video of Biden speaking in front of a military audience as Obama’s Vice President where he insulted and badly disparaged the military have been routinely ignored by the media.

I challenge you to find one story about President Trump that is true and factually correct without hearsay or biased assumptions and I also challenge you to find one story about VP Biden that is true and factually correct without hearsay or biased assumptions. The real proof is in the pudding by examining their political track record of Trump’s 4 years vs Biden’s 47 years in politically elected office? But don’t take my word – do your own Google search. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

When Society Fails

9-25-2020

When Society Fails

It’s sad when someone dies in a senseless act of violence. We call that murder. It is also sad when someone chooses to live a life of crime and get killed as a result of that choice. What is really sad is when someone makes bad choices that result in their needless death. But when society chooses to dismiss violent crime resulting in death as normal, everyday life in the big city it is beyond sad.

There are deliberate acts of violence resulting in death – bank robberies; drug deals gone bad; muggings; murder; armed robberies; home invasions and stick ups that are committed for the most part by someone wanting easy money or something that does not belong to them. In every case when lives are lost they can never be recovered. Families mourn the loss and countless lives are forever changed.

Recently media outlets float false narratives designed to make victims out of the guilty parties. Once a story hits the press it’s often the innocent who must disprove what they are portrayed in the media. By then it’s often too late as “heard” mentality has already kicked in.

That happened in the case of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020. Officers were seen on cell phone video blatantly abusing the suspect during his arrest and he died on a city street in police custody in front of witnesses. Impossible to defend and police officers were fired and charged. But again it was too little, too late as full scale riots, vandalism, looting and even killing of innocent citizens occurred in Minneapolis and several cities across the nation. His televised funeral drew national media attention and made him out to be a hero. A Go Fund Me page in his honor went on to raise millions of dollars and for whom? When the medical examiner released the results of his autopsy the ME concluded that he had died not of asphyxiation but as a result of a drug overdose. The autopsy was immediately contested by family, friends and strangers because it didn’t fit the narrative of cop killing an innocent black man.

That happened again in the case of Breonna Taylor’s death by police in Kentucky in September 2020. Officers executing a no-knock warrant to arrest Breonna Taylor did knock before entering the home or apartment she was in. Her then boyfriend fired at police. Breonna Taylor was hit by return fire from police as she stood in the hallway and died on the scene. Again the “heard” mentality struck again and resulted in full scale riots, vandalism, looting and the shooting of other police officers after a grand jury failed to indict 2 officers and even though 1 officer was indicted for his misconduct.

When 2 police officers in California were ambushed by a lone gunman, protesters blocked the hospital’s emergency room entrance chanting “We hope they die” as the officers were in surgery. When the 2 officers were shot in Kentucky there were no peaceful protests either. When police officers were attacked in Seattle’s former CHAZ area recently media recorded apparent misconduct by police and an investigation has begun. In each case the misconduct of violent criminals is disregarded and the public service of police officers is turned into disgraceful service by baseless accusations. When society fails to respect authority or obey the laws designed to protect them and side with criminals where does the blame lie? Who is held responsible? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Fake News and Misinformation

9-24-2020

Fake News and Misinformation

For those who’ve waited patiently for this blog, here it is. The media would have you to believe that Trump supporters are abandoning ship – not even close. We don’t listen to the fake news reports and if you pay attention to any of the Trump “Peaceful Protests” happening until the election you will clearly see packed enthusiastic crowds excited to be there and many line up several hours before the event is scheduled to begin.

Contrast that with Biden rally’s which have primarily his camera crew, a couple of reporters and possibly his family member in attendance. Where are the Biden / Harris rallies? Why do we not see the “dream team” campaigning together? Are they simply social distancing for effect?

Next the fake news would have you to believe that 300 retired generals have signed on to support Biden, rather than Trump. Well let’s see how many of those generals have a political or financial vested interest in America staying engaged in endless wars? It is my experience that generals are very political by the time they pin on that 1st star, and knowing who to cater to is essential for advancement. Generals are also the ones who after leaving active military service go into the private sector, civil service or employed as contractors. One thing to consider is a general is never really retired, but subject to recall to active duty at any time. As such they must consider the consequences of their actions or words when speaking disrespectfully about the president who is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces. What I’d call a fate worse than that possibility is the fact that seeing what is happening politically with Biden being manipulated by his DNC minders they would tack their names on his political ticket is at best poor judgement.

Another fake news item is that Trump will not accept the results of the election if he loses. That is simply not the case. If you watched the Press Secretary today speaking for the President, she voiced his stated concerns about a national mail-in ballot for all as being ripe for fraud. She went on to emphasis what the President said about the difference between absentee ballots (voters ask for) and mail-in ballots (not requested, but mailed out to everyone). What has been said was by Congressional Democrats that they would not accept the results of the election if Trump won. Hillary Clinton even said Biden should not concede to Trump under any circumstance. The domestic terrorist BLM has said that if Trump wins they will ramp up the violence.

There seems to be mass confusion over the nomination of a replacement for RBG. Congressional Democrats say the last wish of RBG was not to be replaced until a new president is inaugurated. Congressional Democrats have threatened to “pack the SCOTUS” with additional justices if Trump and Senate Republicans move forward with nominating a replacement for RBG. The domestic terrorist BLM has said that if Trump seats a new justice to replace RBG they will ramp up the violence to new levels.

So let me be perfectly clear that According to Article 2 of the Constitution the only one who can nominate justices to SCOTUS is the President. Not a former president. Not Congress. Not domestic terrorists. Not even voters. It is the President who nominates. The Senate has the authority to Advise and Consent on the nomination. Failing to consent, the nomination fails and it is then up to the President to nominate a different justice. There is no provision for “last wishes” of the deceased justice concerning her replacement. Not even if a justice retires or resigns they do not have any influence on naming their replacement. There is no provision for Congressional House members to input on the nomination of a justice to the SCOTUS either. Threatening to “pack the court” by Congress is unconstitutional and is a form of blackmail that I’m sure is illegal.

Let me address public displays of disrespect toward President Trump. We have witnessed members of Congress and family members publicly snub the President and “forbid” him from attending the funeral/memorial services of deceased members of Congress. The media have made a point of highlighting the fact that the President was not “allowed” to attend these services, or speak out concerning the deceased. What happened during today’s visit by President Trump to pay respects to RBG was inappropriate and totally uncalled for, although not totally unexpected. Not only is it protocol to pay respects to a deceased member of the SCOTUS, it is an honor to do so. Not too long ago when Justice Scalia passed away there was no Presidential tribute or respects paid by President Obama, nor was there any media hype about him or VP Biden not being present.

Do you want to know why we have a high level of disrespect toward President Trump by members of Congress, the media and the aforementioned domestic terrorists? I used to think it was because our schools are not teaching respect, but I suspect it is because parents are not teaching respect and our children have never learned to respect themselves or others. This is also true about respecting authority and the consequences of being disrespectful and vulgar toward those who are elder or in positions of authority. Our disrespectful children of yesterday are the ADULTS of today, passing on the fact they have failed themselves and want to insure everyone they come in contact with does the same. America is going to have a wakeup call that will in fact be a serious attitude adjustment for everyone.

It is to your benefit to stop watching the fake news in the papers, magazines or on television, radio or internet. Turn it off. Get away. Go for a long walk, ride or drive to clear your mind. It will do your body good. We are roughly 40 days away from the 2020 election and you should dig into doing your own research and vote based on what’s important to you. If you don’t stand on your principles you will fall for anything. Weigh the results of elected officials. What have they delivered on during their time in politics? You may have to research back 30 or 40 years, but results matter. Have they kept their promises? Have they promised the moon, yet haven’t even gotten off the ground?

The bible tells us that if it is within our power to do so to live at peace with everyone. We are to honor our mother and father that our days may be many. We are not to covet other people or what they possess. We are to love the Lord our God with our mind, body, spirit and soul. We are to love everyone as we love ourselves.

The basic reason there is so much hate in the world today, we hate who we are and are led to believe that God made a mistake when he created us. That is a fallacy that can keep us from having a relationship with the God of the Universe.

God did not make a mistake when he made you. He made you unique, one of a kind (even twins are unique yet different). God loves you just as you are. He has never said, change then come to me. What God has said is “come unto me all who are heavy laden”. God Loves You!

I may not have all the answers (or any for that matter), but it is up to each of us to use the gray matter between our ears. Read, Ask, Listen and Vote not according to party lines, but by what’s really important. Do you want higher taxes, higher wages for less jobs, or free stuff to feel good?

Some of you will be the one who is led to water but can’t be made to drink from it. Others will simply want to argue to make a point. Remember don’t argue with an idiot. He has more experience. Others will be unable to tell just who the idiot is. (Will Rogers?) – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Assessing the Domestic Terrorist Threat

9-24-2020

Assessing the Domestic Terrorist Threat

Has anyone else questioned the execution, funding and organization of domestic terrorist groups assaulting our cities, law enforcement and challenging our state and federal governments, or is it just me?

In case you think this is Trumps fault let me fill you on something – it didn’t start overnight and has been gaining traction, under the radar for several years now, in the Pacific Northwest region (Northern California, Oregon and Washington).  It appears they were organizing under the sanctioning of the Barack Obama administration and members of a progressive liberal congress with funding from Soros backed entities spilling over from Canada.

During the second term of Barack Obama these terrorist groups began to conduct a series of civil unrest under the guise of police brutality beginning with the shooting of Travon Martin and others who died as a result of police shootings. Obama even entertained the organizers of the Black Lives Matter organization in the White House on more than one occasion during his presidency. Protest marches and rioting also took place after school shooting incidents. In each case presidential and congressional voices spoke out against law enforcement officers doing the job of enforcing state and federal laws. Many communities were left traumatized and shattered after the destruction and violence.

The election of Donald Trump and the failed Russian Collusion Delusion, the failed Impeachment, and the now failed Ukrainian Debacle and the China Virus bringing a new coronavirus to America and to the world I’m sure organizers of the terror campaign were wondering what was it going to take to change the mindset of the American people?

The events in Minneapolis in May of 2020 and the death of George Floyd provided the spark that was needed and Antifa, Black Lives Matter and White Nationalists groups quickly took advantage of to instigate and further their campaign of terror on Americans.

So how are they able to react so quickly with able bodies, uniforms, weapons, signs, banners, rocks, bricks, explosives and gases? Initially they seemed to have airlines, buses and other means of transportation to be on scene within hours. So where did they gather, how did they direct communications to participants and logistically how did they preposition needed items? Who paid for it all? Who is paying for it now?

Most recently there is a 16’ U-Haul truck seen on video prepositioned in Kentucky full of signs, shield, banners, weapons being opened up and distributed to participants in short order. Weapons are used on law enforcement with at least 2 officers shot, and more than 100 arrested during the Kentucky rioting in the name of a woman who was killed by police.

At the same time in Denver, marchers were massing on the state capital in protest to the same woman who was killed during a police response to a crime where police were shot at and one suspect killed. I haven’t watched the news so I have to assume that multiple riots have irrupted in various cities around the nation. I watched a video of police in Seattle being assaulted in the former CHOP area by armed terrorists. Again who is paying to instigate and orchestrate all this violence?

The obvious thing is to follow the money. Someone has to create the signs, banners, uniforms and weapons being used throughout the nation. Where are these things being made, transported and distributed? Someone has to do staffing, payroll (even cash payments have to be done by multiple “paymasters” or disbursing individuals? Buses at the ready, so who is dispatching, organizing and tracking them?

Some things to consider, the upcoming election has been threatened to be a contested one. The presidential nomination of a justice for the SCOTUS is also to be contested.  All the violence is said to be ramping up to an unprecedented level, never before experienced outside an active warzone.

These are extraordinary events happening in extraordinary times in our nation and it would seem that the natural progression of events would indicate that a president being forced to declare Martial Law and activate the National Guard in each state to protect citizen voting at polling places, while using specialized active duty troops to restore and maintain order (which they are very good at). This could also result in the recalling to active duty reserve forces and recently discharged or retired military personnel to meet the needs of the military.

What if the president decided under Martial Law to suspend the Constitution and VOTING until after order has been restored? Would this not be unprecedented action during an unprecedented state of national emergency? What about the mass arrest and confinement of radically charged fascists and communists members of Congress and members of the Obama administration who are fueling the fires of civil unrest? Would those not be other progressions of events?

A big what if Almighty God chose to intervene supernaturally AGAIN in a display of HIS supreme authority over our nation and our people? Again you say? How awesome would that be?

Christians have humbled themselves and prayed for God to intervene and save our nation from the evil of this sinful world. Yet many Christians have sided with non-believers in standing up AGAINST what God is doing on our behalf and for HIS glory.

God called a man, whom society rejected and have openly scorned, to become a sword to the spirit of Political Correctness and to stop evil. A man so focused on returning the nation to the basic principles of the Constitution which is founded on biblical principles and a man so committed to Making America Great Again that he will not stop until his vision of America has been realized. This battle for America is not against physical forces, but a spiritual battle and we are told in the bible that we cannot serve two masters so I ask whose side are you on? Have you aligned yourself with or against God? – The Real Truckmaster!

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – March 15, 1933 “–“September 18, 2020

It is the nature of man to render tribute to people upon their passing. For many it may be the only time they are recognized for any accomplishments in their life. The recent passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a prime example of a life that left a footprint as only she could.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – born in New York City on March 15, 1933 “–“September 18, 2020 she died at age 87 in her home in Washington DC and will be forever known by the “–“that in essence was her life and according to Wikipedia – She was an American jurist who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and served until her death in 2020.

To her family, friends and colleagues in the SCOTUS she was much, much more than just that. I suspect that what she cherished most in life was being called “Grandmother” by her grandchildren.

Today the national tribute and memorial service for Justice Ginsburg is being conducted at the SCOTUS. Her body will lie in state until Friday where she will be moved to the Capital Building for public viewing.

We tend to think of public figures as larger than life and not in fact just ordinary people doing an extraordinary job in unordinary times. I watched on the history channel a documentary where Justice Ginsburg was interviewed before a live audience. She was smart, engaging and funny at times as she answered written questions and recounted her interaction with her colleagues on the court. Throughout her life she was often ahead of her time and formed her opinion on a variety of issues and as an associate justice she let no one pressure or influence her to go against what she believed was constitutional.

Walking on Eggshells

Walking on Eggshells

When I was young we lived on a farm with chickens and farm animals all over the place. When you went into the chicken coup early in the morning you had to be careful where you stepped. No telling what you encountered in the darkness of the coup. There were feathers, chicken feed, lots of chicken s*it. Usually the chickens were outside pecking around with the rooster chasing the young hens. We learned never to walk in the house with those same shoes on either.

When I got older I worked with my brothers in a poultry place where we fed the baby chicks, and sorted the older ones that were going to market. We had to be careful or we might step on a baby chick who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Much later in life I had the opportunity to take my grandkids to the local county fair. One of the favorites was the chicken barn and the livestock barn with lots to see and do, but again be careful where you stepped. One season they were giving away baby chicks to the kids to take home and raise them. Not a good idea if you live in the city or in an apartment. The chicks were in a pen like a wading pool. On the table next to the chicks was a stack of McDonalds Chicken Nugget boxes (they had holes so the chicks could breathe). My grandkids wanted a baby chick until I told them where Chicken Nuggets came from.

Politics can be like walking on eggshells. You can’t say anything about this candidate or that candidate without offending someone or being offended. I have family and friends who are political opposites of my stated political views. We agree to disagree and rarely talk politics at social gatherings. Once in a while someone will tend to be a bit smart-alecky and throw something out there to embarrass you or make fun of your political candidate. At those times it’s not nice to retaliate in kind, “but sometimes Alice…..pow right in the kisser” an old Jackie Gleason saying says it all.

We are what, 47 days away from the election on November 3rd and it’s time to take the kid gloves off and step up like a man or a woman (your preference) and say enough is enough.  Stop trashing the candidate you don’t like because of a manufactured disliking or hatred for him or her. Try judging their character. Use the same standard you want others to use on you.

The bible says in Matthew 7: 1-5 NIV

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Should you not spend your time praying for each candidate that God would open the door for the right one and shut the door for the wrong one? We should desire our governing leaders to be successful, that our nation and its people will be successful.  Otherwise we make ourselves a laughing stock among the nations of the world, not by what our leaders do, but what they fail to do or fail to say in unity.

Stop dividing your brothers and sisters by the color of their skin, or their ethnic background. We have all been created equal by the same God who will one day soon judge each of us by our actions, deeds and words.

Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I CHALLENGE YOU from now until Election Day search out one new fact daily about both candidates (Biden & Trump) for the office of the presidency. Be careful not to fall for hearsay, gossip or blatantly false accusations. Site facts and use credible sources. Be prepared to defend you posts.

Be respectful in your answers. Obscene, vulgar and hateful comments will be removed as will your ability to comment further.

Example:
(Former VP Joe Biden is from Delaware – official biography)

(President Donald Trump is from New York – official biography)

No more walking on eggshells! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Interpretations of Democracy

Interpretations of Democracy

I guess we’ve been looking at Democracy the wrong way.

For Conservatives the Constitution is the rule of law in the United States and protecting the Constitution as a fundamental and basic responsibility of every citizen.

On the other side Liberals seem to feel justified in protecting Democracy by tearing down the Constitution, ignoring the rule of law and removing basic rights of citizens.

This is a basic difference between Conservative Republicans and Liberal Democrats and its only 6 weeks before the November 3rd, 2020 election and Congressional Democrats have literally tried everything in their Book of Liberal Secrets to influence voters and insure that the president is not reelected.

One of the Congressional Democrats latest stunts was to push forth a mandatory vote by mail scheme designed to overwhelm the USPS and local state election boards due to the sheer volume of mail in ballots. The plan was to mail out billions of ballots, not necessarily to the right people or to their current addresses and without their consent or request making a case for very real voter fraud.

Congressional Democrats accused President Trump of ordering the USPS to remove blue mail receptacles so voters couldn’t mail in their ballots and obtained an injunction stopping the removal of blue boxes which were located primarily in areas where they were not being used at all. The message from the USPS was if they can handle Christmas cards, and packages during the holidays they can handle ballots. Certain Democratic state Attorneys General began pushing forward threats of pressing charges on the president for with telling voters to vote multiple times.

President Trump claims that forcing a mail in ballots for all is a scheme ripe for voter fraud and encouraged voters to verify that their mail in ballot had been counted or to vote in person with a provisional ballot that would only be counted if their original ballot was not received.

The message from Congressional Republicans was simple – vote in person, but if you are unable request an absentee ballot and if possible take it down to one of the state election ballot receiving stations. Then follow up to insure your ballot has been received and counted.

In other news, Republican run states have begun reopening, some without restrictions so that their economy can be restored and life can get back to normal. Liberals Democrats have long held the belief that COVID-19 is a really smart virus that can distinguish between people who are worshiping in church and those rioting in the streets. Only those in church will be affected by COVID-19 so many Democratic run states have nailed the doors of churches shut while allowed rioting mobs to burn loot and murder (BLM) with impunity. To insure complete destruction cities have defunded police, eliminating entire city police forces and placed citizens on their own to fend off vandals (just don’t use a weapon). Those already being processed for burning, looting or murder were given a get out of jail free card by liberal Democratic AGs and placed back on the street. This puts a huge strain on city resources and citizens are wondering what happened to the police? Who answers 911 calls? Who responds to emergencies?

Congressional Democrats have threatened President Trump and Attorney General Barr with impeachment in an attempt to prevent the president from moving forward with a SCOTUS nominee to replace RBG. Some claim it was her last wish to have her replacement sworn in by the next president after the November election. Obama says we must be consistent in the SCOTUS appointment. Great legal minds and experts say the president cannot fill the seat before an election. Many have their opinions but I suspect have never read Article II of the Constitution. The president nominates, the Senate confirms and the new justice is sworn in. Nothing stated it must be done after the election.

In past administrations the Senate acted quickly or chose to wait before moving a nominee forward. In this administration Congressional Democrats moved the goal posts and created a circus atmosphere during the confirmation hearing of Justice Kavanaugh with false accusations, publicly smearing his character, his family and his career. After his swearing in, there were no apologies given by Congressional Democrats. What happened to those false accusers or those who supported them?

We have learned that everything is politics.

Being a patriot has an entirely different meaning depending on your focus.

Republicans say after the election we can get down to the business of returning to normal, building the economy, creating jobs and moving America forward after Trump is reelected. The best is yet to come!

Democrats say after the election we will riot, burn more, destroy more and America must get ready to suffer. If Trump is reelected things will get worse.

As an American I say enough!
