Impeaching the President

Impeaching the President


I have refrained from following the proceedings today as it appears that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made good on her promise to move forward on the impeachment of President Donald Trump. This is nothing new as threats of impeachment began even before the inauguration in 2017.


Americans have been fiercely divided on what constitutes impeachable offences – a booming economy, lowering taxes, war on opioids, international diplomacy or was it simply making fun of Democrats and their lackey fake news organizations? President Trump made a number of promises while campaigning and to date he has worked fiercely against partisan democrats to keep those promises.


There has been an undercurrent of unrest that is being blamed on President Trump. There is a total disrespect for our nation its symbols and the flag topped a total lack of respect toward the president by many claiming to be patriots protecting the Constitution.


What I see are vestiges of power grasping at straws as that power dissipates in front of them. So hungry to regain control of Congress, after the midterm elections of 2018 the democratic dream came true and the one uniting factor was to remove President Trump from office, at any cost.


This has been a partisan effort lead by congressional democrats many of whom have spent a majority of their adulthood exploiting public service for personal gain. How else can you explain the number of congressional millionaires who built up their assets after taking office? Covered up and protected by deep state operatives in various agencies there has never been a serious routing out of the wrongdoers or their cohorts until the Trump presidency.


Many times efforts to oust Donald Trump have failed, yet the democratic left continue one after the other and the funny thing (if things could really be funny) is the accusations about the President are the very actions perpetrated by the accusers. Politicians accused of wrongdoing normally resign and are never heard from again. False accusations against President Trump simply fall flat.


Scoffers mock anyone who claims that Donald Trump is on a mission from God. They ridicule Trump and say he’s not a real Christian because of his past personal dealings and business successes. To them I say this – God can and will use anyone who submits themselves to God – Even and especially Donald Trump.


I look at the Trump Presidency as living proof that God is doing a great work through the man Donald Trump. If God can use Adam and Eve to populate the earth; then use Noah and his immediate family to repopulate the earth after the flood; and use Moses to bring the Israelites out of Egypt and turn their stubbornness into a 40 year journey; God can surely use one man possessing the one attribute necessary for God to use – availability then couple that with commitment, drive and a determination to succeed – Donald Trump is the one man suitable for the work that God has selected him for.


There is no force on heaven or on earth or under the earth that can know, understand or stand up against the will of the living God – Jehovah! His plan is perfect and it will come to pass for HIS glory. I pity the man, woman or being that chooses to side against a man whom God has choses so long as that man remains in the perfect will of God until that work has been completed. You may scoff and disbelieve and that is your choice, but it will not change the fact that what God has set in motion will come to pass.


The impeachment debacle will go the way of the Russian Collusion Delusion and the Trump Derangement Syndrome as Donald Trump is President of the United States for a reason and will be re-elected in 2020 to serve until his purpose has been successfully completed and the course of America has been firmly reset. – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Why the Constitution?




Why the Constitution?


This is the 232nd anniversary of the Constitution of the United States and many do not know, nor have they learned why we have the Constitution in the first place. The settlers of the new world did so because of the perceived opportunity for living in a land free of the corruption and graft of the old world countries they left behind. Over time it seemed that the corruption and graft followed. Because the new world was ruled predominately by the old world nations of Great Brittan, France and Spain shaking off the bonds of the old world seemed like an impossible task.


What began with a small group of men and women searching for a new way of life had to include a new way of governing. One of the major grievances was taxation without representation. Much of the wealth of this new world ended up in the pockets of kings so far away. Soldiers were everywhere and often forced their way into homes across the colonies without any input from the home owners. Taxes on everything were raised without consent or warning.


After much discussion and dissent it was decided that the Constitution must protect the rights of man while limiting the power of government. Only the power given to the government or to the state (colonies) had to come from the people. Otherwise the power remained with the people.


I challenge you to go to the website and read the Constitution for yourself. Look at the Bill of Rights, the Preamble and the Amendments as well. Understand that the rights of the people hinge on the first 10 Amendments, the other Amendments clarify that which was not spelled out clearly enough, but do not nullify or change the original Bill of Rights.


In their infinite wisdom those who comprised the Continental Congress saw that a Democracy would not work for this new world government. They saw that a republic also was lacking. What had never been done before (or since) was creating a Constitutional-Republic where the rule of law WAS the Constitution and based entirely upon biblical principles and standards created by Almighty God.


These men and women chose to put themselves on the line (lock, stock and barrel = everything) for the sake of Freedom, casting off the bonds of the most powerful government in the world at that time. Not everyone was in agreement and some even helped the other side as the War of Independence waged on.


The end result was freedom and a new nation was formed, the United States of America was bought and paid for by the red blood of patriots who put their money where their mouths were. It hasn’t been easy and many struggles have been waged and won for the sake of Freedom.


As with any war there are profiteers who manage to get rich off the backs of hard working men and women and it was no different then and still happening today in 2019.


We call it public service, but those who enter politics are people like you and me. They are of “we-the- people” and are sent to Congress to represent our best interests, yet what inevitably happens is they become “acclimated” into the political climate of Washington politics.


It’s easy to go from public service to self-servicing politics where the agenda appears to be personal enrichment of wealth and power over people. There is no justification for padding ones bank account while claiming to be in public service, yet here we are voting the same people back into office time and time again simply because our chosen political party says so.


Whether it is an elected or appointed office the official must take “the oath” before assuming that office or position. That oath includes “protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic, and obeying the orders of the President of the United States so help me God.”


Military service is another matter where the service member puts him or herself on the line to protect the Constitution and our way of life. Nobody can imagine what that means without actually doing it!


The Constitution does not guarantee fair and equal treatment, free housing, food or entitlements or forgiveness of school debt or even free healthcare or the right to abortion services.


The Constitution does guarantee freedom to worship God, to have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without fear of an out of control government interfering.


Politicians tend to seek re-election as their primary focus and many will say and do anything for the almighty vote. There should be a Constitutional Amendment that insures a politician seeking a different political office must resign his current office upon submitting the intent to run for political office (other than re-election).


It’s been said that a chain is as strong as its weakest link and the same can be said for a nation. We are only as strong as our weakest citizen. We must step up and protect each and every citizen from bullies, thugs and criminals with every fiber of our being. – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Operation Orange Envelope Campaign


15 September 2019


The Operation Orange Envelope Campaign to bring to a vote HR2201 and S1381


This is a call for Thailand Veterans of the Vietnam War, their families, survivors and friends to join this campaign to focus attention on the unknown and forgotten – what I call the “walking dead” from Herbicide Exposure while stationed in Thailand during the war.


We are NOT the Blue Water Navy veterans you have heard about, nor are we covered under their recently passed bill.


On 19 August 2019 we launched our Operation Orange Envelope Group on FB in preparation for the massive nationwide kickoff to Mail Orange Envelopes happened beginning 12 September 2019, to the Administration, Members of Congress (Veterans Affairs Committees of both Chambers) and the Media (national and local outlets). One lady actually walked the halls of Congress for 2 full days to hand deliver 1070 envelopes and mailing another 30 before returning to Tennessee.


As of this writing our FB Group membership stands at 367 active members, with 105 having sent out 4881 Orange Envelopes, resulting in Media outlets across the country conducting and/or scheduling interviews of at least 3 Thailand Veterans after receiving Orange Envelopes.


Our membership increases daily, tallies keep coming in and as we are joined by members of other Thailand FB groups we expect to literally flood the halls of congress with Orange Envelopes so that we will be ignored no longer.


We began expanding our reach through various Thailand Veteran FB groups by inviting them to join the campaign.


In fact you don’t have to be a Veteran to join us, simply come to the Operation Orange Envelope FB group and request to join. Then begin writing a short letter (1-2 pages) asking for Congressional support (Co-Sponsors) of HR2201 and S1381 (companion bills will change US Code Title 38) to grant presumptive exposure to herbicides for Thailand Veterans (important to note the years: 1961 – 1976).

If you are new, please use this as a guide to getting started. We log our mailings with name, state, and number of letters and to whom? Post in the comments section and the admin team will update the document for accountability purposes.

Will you join us?

Climate Change versus Fossil Fuel



Climate Change versus Fossil Fuel


The 2019 Democratic Climate Change Debate session scheduled for 7-hours have produced some of the most ridiculous concocted statements from some of the left’s leading candidates for the 2020 Presidential Election against the reelection of President Donald Trump. I have tried to stay clear of the rhetoric and focus on other things – life, liberty and the pursuit of my happiness.


Today I asked myself “What is Climate Change” and this paragraph from NASA provides a very reasonable and down to earth definition:


What Is Climate Change? | NASA

Climate change is a change in the usual weather found in a place. This could be a change in how much rain a place usually gets in a year. Or it could be a change in a place’s usual temperature for a month or season. Climate change is also a change in Earth’s climate. This could be a change in Earth’s usual temperature.


Next I wanted to know what exactly is fossil fuel? All the Democratic candidates seem to be dead set on getting rid of them and this American Heritage Dictionary provides a very good definition:


Fossil Fuel


A hydrocarbon-based fuel, such as petroleum, coal, or natural gas, derived from living matter of a previous geologic time.


any fuel derived from hydrocarbon deposits such as coal, petroleum, natural gas and, to some extent, peat; these fuels are irreplaceable, and their burning generates the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide


fuel consisting of the remains of organisms preserved in rocks in the earth’s crust with high carbon and hydrogen content.

(From The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.)


So if fossil fuel is bad and causes climate change it only makes sense to get rid of them and do what we did before using fossil fuel. There are lots of ways fossil fuel is being used besides heating homes in certain areas and yes that produces air pollution and that is bad.


But however so is smoking right? Cigars and Cigarettes cause air pollution, lung cancer and lots of nasty problems within the human body. Why is nobody talking about banning Smoking EVERYWHERE AND ALL THE TIME? Because somebody invented Vaping! Vaping is one of those little eCigs that are the rage with kids and adults everywhere. It allows them to puff away without creating all that smoke, smell and causes no cancer to the lungs. There is a small drawback, vaping causes popcorn lung which causes the lung to sort of collapse within itself and makes it rather impossible to breath.


Let’s move on to something else that is directly related to fossil fuels, what kinds of products would we have to give up if we simply banned fossil fuels all together?

According to this US Energy Information Administration (EIA), this is a partial list of petroleum products and their share of total US petroleum consumption back in 2013.

Gasoline 46%

Heating Oil / Diesel Fuel 20%

Jet Fuel (kerosene) 8%

Propane / Propylene 7%

NGL / LRG 6%

Still Gas 4%

Petrochemical Feedstocks 2%

Petroleum Coke 2%

Residual / Heavy Fuel Oil 2%

Asphalt / Road Oil 2%

Lubricants 1%

Miscellaneous Products / Special Naphthas 0.4%

Other Liquids 1%

Aviation Gasoline 0.1%

Waxes 0.04%

Kerosene 0.02%


Of course these consumption rates have increased over time since then, don’t you think? Well I was thinking more about giving up fossil fuels and wind turbines and electric cars and stuff that operate on electricity would simply take up the slack as we phased out the petroleum product portions of fossil fuels. I found this partial list of products made from petroleum, but since inventors invent and consumers consume there seems to be that thing called supply and demand that overrides cutting back on many of the things we take for granted.


Here is a partial list of products made from petroleum?

Here is a quite large partial list of products made from petroleum. This list is constantly growing as new inventions are created. Here are some of the items which are made from petroleum.


So which ones are YOU willing to go without?

While there will be a number of industries that benefit from lower oil prices, it isn’t usually an immediate effect. It takes time for input prices to filter through the corporate supply chain and the economy.


Given the large drop in oil prices, this should give you some ideas about areas that could benefit from these lower prices. Investing in the oil sector may require some caution. My thought is to be careful of catching a falling knife on oil prices. There will eventually be some great bargains in the oil and gas energy sector, but patience is always a virtue. Look elsewhere to related industries. (2015)


I’ve come to the conclusion that the climate always has and always will change over time. That’s the way God created it. Man has made great strides to use the resources available to him, and the overriding factor that “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil” (from the bible) holds true. Money may not literally make the world go round (God created it to spin on its axis), but money makes man better able to control others, buy expensive toys and even try to shame those who either can’t afford or choose not to indulge in all the bells and whistles that are being touted as something we all must have to exist. I don’t know how much Americans can take from radicals and liberals on either wing because like it or not it’s all the same bird. One last thought before I close – It’s hard to soar with eagles when you surround yourself with turkeys! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


News of the Day



News of the day


There is a fire in the Amazon which predictors say could disrupt the global climate if not extinguished immediately. There are polar ice caps melting at an alarming rate also affecting climate change. US politicians have determined that internal combustion engines and dairy cows produce emissions that will also have a lasting effect on the state of our climate.


In the Middle East Israel combats attacks by Hamas and Iranian forces from bases in Syria, while US politicians begin going against stated US policy to condemn Israel and defend Palestine while condemning US policy and defending illegal aliens.


President Trump is in France at the G7 Summit talking with world leaders about real world problems, such as combating the fires in the Amazon and other matters.


Recent Democratic Party campaigning for the 2020 Presidential race have reduced the contenders into a sizable circus of who can stop President Trump from re-election and stop the very successful policies which have stimulated the US economy over the past 2 ½ years.


Meanwhile fake news media outlets such as CNN are fixated not on reporting the news as it is happening but attempting to smear the President with unfounded attacks by so called “experts” on his mental status without ever so much as a meeting or clinical observation or charging the outrageous fees associated with Psychiatric consultations (none given).


What is transpiring are a number of Republican so-called Presidential Candidates coming out of the woodwork thinking they can upstage a very successful sitting President?


What this means to the “Average Joe” on the street (you and me) is not so much about what everyone is saying they can do for our country, but demonstrating real tangible results, like a successful economy.


This is not worthy of political posturing, simply watching the action (or inaction) of politicians which can be measured by something called results. Do their actions match up with their words? Does their mantra simply have a hollow ring to it? Or can you reach out and touch those results (lower taxes, higher wages, more jobs, etc.)? Need I say more? – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Gun Control versus Gun Violence



Gun Control versus Gun Violence


Talk is cheap and rhetoric is rampant across America. Liberal politicians want to control guns as a means to end gun violence. We hear, read and see repeatedly efforts to ignore, curb or modify constitutional amendments that protect Americans from an abusive government or deranged criminals bent on committing violent attacks upon innocent victims. It is abundantly clear that the proper training and use of guns is a means of self-defense and stopping gun violence.


Every day there are a number of reported acts of violence where guns are the weapons of choice. Attacks occur in a variety of public places or in private homes or residences. We’ve seen attacks on school children, teachers and public servants where a police response often did not occur in time.


Proponents of gun control would have you to believe that restricting ownership of certain guns will make crimes stop and everyone safer. They would have you believe that if you give up your personal weapons crime will simply go around you. They also have determined that assault rifles are the primary cause of all of these mass shootings and attacks. So I ask you, when does a weapon become an assault rifle?


Opponents of gun control measures would have you to believe that true gun control has to come with the control of crime. Guns do not kill, people with guns do. They would have you to believe that responsible gun ownership requires personal responsibility, education and training on the safe handling, usage and operation of the type of weapon you choose to own.  It is their contention that a properly trained weapon owner when faced with a criminal in the act of committing a crime can be stopped quickly, which results in the potential saving of lives.


Within the past week we have had incidents where a lone shooter have killed and wounded scores of individuals in shopping malls and night clubs without an apparent reason or simply to make a point. In very few incidents properly trained citizens have taken out the shooter or held them until police arrive. I’m sorry to say but these are the exceptions.


In the case of personal assaults or armed robberies it is the unarmed victim who suffers injury and/or loss of property when an armed assailant decides to use a weapon to commit the act of violence. But when the criminal threat has been neutralized or eliminated there are public outcries of police brutality and murder. This is not about race or ethnicity; it is about bad guys being stopped before they can commit their crimes again.


The sad thing about crimes of violence involving guns is that all too often someone dies. Families have lost sons, daughters, mothers or fathers. Victims and perpetrators are dead or injured and nobody wins.


Nothing is for free. Crime does not pay.


A government that victimizes its citizens or sets them up to be victimized is an irresponsible one.


The Bill of Rights are the parts of the Constitution that guarantees certain basic rights for all US citizens and those charged with and fail to uphold it have blood upon their hands each time a crime occurs regardless of who the victim is.  – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Opening Pandora’s Box




Opening Pandora’s Box


There was an undercurrent sweeping across America that evil was on the rampage and completely out of control. Good people were being unfairly punished and bad people were getting off scot free. Political Correctness was the order of the day and there was no choice but to get onboard or suffer the consequences. It was quite surprising when one man said no and stood firm as he was going to “Drain the Swamp”. Just who in the world did he think he was anyway?


That man was Donald J. Trump a self-made millionaire real estate tycoon and entertainer who announced he was going to run for the office of President of the United States. Among his campaign promises he was going to drain the swamp, meaning the corruption in Washington D.C. and folks were not too happy about it. Politicians wanted business as usual, big money wanted access to people in power and absolutely nobody wanted Trump to mess it up by opening Pandora’s Box.


I read somewhere that draining the swamp was like pulling the plug on a giant swimming pool or maybe like a huge cesspool or toilet bowl whereas the water dropped lower and lower unusual objects would begin to protrude higher and higher until all that was left was s big gooey mess. Mired down in the goo were all kinds of creatures, flopping around unable to get themselves out on their own. At some point as the sun began to bake the goo it turned into soft clay, before hardening to a firm crust, imbedding everything within its grasp.


What began during the 2016 Presidential campaign season with rhetoric has over the past 2 years turned into a nightmare and political reality. Petty little kingdoms began to crumble and fall, castles were uprooted and even now we’ve not seen the level of accountability that one would expect from those so high up on the political totem pole that has left so many resembling post turtles that didn’t put them up there; they don’t know how to get down off the post; and have absolutely no idea what to do while their up there.


We are barely 15 months from the 2020 Presidential Election and already the 26 Democratic post turtles are resting uncomfortably atop their posts. They boast on how to beat Trump, but don’t have the wherewithal to do so. They want to be POTUS #46 but haven’t a snowballs chance in………Arizona of getting there.


Almost to a tee every Democratic candidate wants to raise taxes, cut industrial jobs like coal and oil production; forgive college tuition for all students, regardless of their field of study or how many years they’ve been career students? They want to eliminate America’s borders, welcome in everyone and put them on the government’s dole (welfare, free stuff and so on). They approve of mass migration and taking care of illegals already in this country, but want to prosecute federal agents who enforce US laws, but want law breakers taken care of in sanctuary cities and states.


Almost every Democrat approves of abortion (murder of babies in the womb or moments after birth)? They think socialism and communism means everyone gets their own free account on social media and communal living is really cool. You don’t have to work if you don’t want to, because you can get lots of free stuff from the government. They want to reduce the carbon footprint by banning air travel and airplanes, so everyone will have to take the bus (it’s going to be quite a long trip to Hawaii).


They want to eliminate toxic gases emitted from cows and ban plastic straws while doing nothing for saving the environment. Their biggest goal besides Climate Change and the Green New Deal is to unseat President Trump at all costs. Their ideas are so absurd that members of their own party throw in the towel and are announcing they’ll vote for Trump.


The current rage is on restricting gun ownership based upon the constitutional need for certain types of firearms. Would that they spend more time on figuring out how to get gun toting criminals off the streets and their guns out of circulation instead of depriving lawful gun owners their constitutional right to own and bear arms. Keep weapons out of the hands of those institutionalized or imprisoned, but to restrict, remove or confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens seems like a bad idea.


People are really quick to criticize President Trump for the way he talks or tweets, while completely overlooking and ignoring the hateful rhetoric coming from those on the political left. It’s ok for them to attack him, but not ok for him to defend himself or go on the offensive.


If you don’t like something and have the power to change it leaves you with nobody to blame but yourself. For all those open-minded people out there once the lid is off Pandora’s Box there is no putting it back on and acting like nothing has changed. For all you Christians out there rest assured that God is on the move and has everything totally under control. You can’t surprise God! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
