Using Every Tool in the Toolbox

Using Every Tool in the Toolbox


Have you ever visited the home of a home builder or a general contractor? What you find will amaze you. There could be saws, hammers and all sorts of tools for a host of specialties. Maybe even a bucket lift, a cement mixer or a sawzall. Builders are by nature creative. They have done it all and still have the tools to prove it. The really good ones have some of the really good tools too. They surround themselves with guys who can individually do a host of specialty skills like electrical, plumbing, painting and carpentry work. They know what it takes to bring the job up to code.


Leaders are a lot like builders. They too surround themselves with guys who know how to get things done. They know a job worth doing is done right the first time. Leaders just have a different toolbox to choose from. There are guys who are right for a certain phase in the creation or development of a specific job like a guy with a certain skill set. One person can size up a business, a department or a specific job and has a working knowledge of how to turn things around or tune it up. However it may take an entirely different person to take it to the next level. A good leader knows when to step up his game and bring in the right person and at the right time.


Isn’t it funny how people are always quick to criticize something they know absolutely nothing about? They are the ones who can tell you how things ought to be done, but have no experience in doing what they are telling you what they think you should do. Does that make sense?


Military leaders are another breed altogether. Their toolbox is full of knuckleheads, sometimes fresh out of basic or advanced training schools. They are the privates who are eager to please. They answer as they’ve been taught to say “”Yes Sergeant”, “No Sergeant”, or “I don’t know Sergeant”. Once they’ve been in the unit a while it becomes “Why me?” or “Can’t you get someone else?” and they get lax or lazy. It takes a good leader to come in and turn things around and get them re-focused and back on track.


The same thing is true with the President. A new president will come into office and disrupt things by bringing in new blood or in his case a new Administration. His transition team has worked closely with him to insure the right people go into the right jobs. Often it’s a combination of former military personnel going into positions dealing with the military or foreign affairs. Looking at things from the outside it may look like some of the people are simply rich people going into positions without any rhyme or reason. Yet everyone’s quick to give their assessment of the situation they have no experience with.


When there is a shakeup or a change in cabinet level leaders or in the White House staff the media goes crazy with all kinds of evaluations and public criticism as to why the change is being made. Personality clash with the President; disgruntled former insider tossed out in the cold without any reason; the President picked the wrong guy or gal for the job.


It never occurs to those naysayers that the President is just pulling another tool out of his vast toolbox. Sometimes you need a screwdriver and other times you need a sledgehammer. It’s been said that you can’t remake a first impression.


I can honestly say that I’ve never been President of the United States. I have however 20 years’ experience as a military leader. It is essential to come into a job knowing what the mission is for both the unit and your section. You must size up the situation, determine if you have the right men and women to get the job and the mission accomplished properly. Sometimes you have to adjust by rearranging or reassigning personnel to new or differing duties. Other times you remove people and bring in new ones. Never have had a previous section leader come back to criticize how you are handling the section. That’s why you don’t normally hear a former President criticize the current President over how his administration is leading the United States domestically or in foreign affairs.


I venture to say that if we as a people would keep our noses to the grindstone, focused on OUR best interests and doing what is best for ourselves and our families we wouldn’t be concerned as to whether or not our President is doing his job the way WE think it should be done. After all we have no dog in that fight, do we?


If we listen to all the political banter it usually comes from politicians sewing discord and discontent in an effort to gain enough votes so that they can go in and mess things up for all of us. Gone are the days when we can see our economy growing and on the world stage other nations are seeing strong leadership coming from the White House yet hear nothing but politicians telling us how messed up we are for backing such a leader as President Trump.


Let me leave you with this thought. This successful builder and entertainer has done in such a short time while putting up with the egocentrically challenged political left because this President has both a vision for America and the knowledge and experience to make it a reality.


As we approach the Presidential Election cycle for 2020 all the political bantering I hear coming from the left is simply talk with no substance. We have failed politicians who are currently in Congress and have been for some time without making a case for themselves that is backed up with any substance, yet they want us to believe that they have all the answers? Once a politician always a politician, kissing babies and making them cry by promising them the moon and what they have no intention of delivering.


I urge you to Vote for America! Don’t vote political party, we are better than that! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Five Hundred Thirty Five to One




Five Hundred Thirty Five to One


There ought to be a movie about modern day Congress and President that highlights the epic saga of what amounts to a modern day coup d’etat orchestrated by the previous administration’s FBI senior staff and members of Congress.


What began as a politically financed stunt against a political opponent took on a life of its own at the expense of US taxpayers while tarnishing the reputation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This became a travesty of justice against a sitting President and a huge hoax on the American public. The scope of deceit is of a magnitude never before seen in the United States and is nothing short of the nationwide wholesale peddling of “snake oil” akin to the frontier days in the American Wild, Wild West.


The sayings that absolute power corrupts absolutely and a people who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it ring true once more.


The intent of the founding fathers as it pertains to elected congressional officials was to have citizen-legislators who would be elected to represent the citizen who voted for them. They would go to Washington and represent the will of the people. Upon expiration of their term, return home and resume their personal lives as private citizens having made America a better place for having served.


Instead Congress has become a career choice, reelection the priority with greed, power and financial gain a byproduct. America has not become a better place, but rather a cash cow to be milked dry. Members of Congress have often placed themselves above the law. The lawmakers have become the lawbreakers never to be held accountable.  Rather than submit legislators have betrayed that sacred trust and overridden the will of the people. Instead of changing US laws when flaws become apparent, legislators simply ignore them. Not willing to abide by the rule of law, it is ignored all together.


Modern day Congress sees itself in an adversarial relationship with the President and relies on the Supreme Court to act as a sort of playground monitor. They have forgotten the role of government is to govern.


Legislative Branch legislates;


Executive Branch enforces;


Judicial Branch rules based upon Constitutional mandates.


There is no room in governing for personal feuds, playground bickering or street justice. Elected officials are not superior to, but dependent upon citizens who expect their will to be carried out. The United States Government is responsible for the safety of and is responsible to its citizens. We have seen the audacity of a government who feel its citizens are not capable of self-governance. Provisions in the Constitution provide for the removal of an unresponsive government and the creation of a new one, when its citizens feel it is warranted.


We are at a critical point in the history of this nation where the driving force for change is Political Correctness that attempts to force into extinction the only Constitutional-Republic the world has ever seen. The corruption that has taken hold of many facets of our government threatens our very way of life. I am reminded of the story in the bible where it appeared the entire “Army of God” stood in fear of a giant named Goliath. As he stood taunting a young boy, David chose a single pebble, loaded his slingshot and felled the giant. David then used the giants own sword to cut off his head.


America has been under attack for quite some time and it appeared that as fearful as it was, nobody knew what to do about it. Christians across this nation fell to their knees in prayer asking God to have mercy on our nation and deliver us from evil. God heard our many prayers and he answered in a way nobody saw coming. They weren’t answered overnight but in the timing and choosing of God.


Today America has the giant of Political Correctness which threaten the very life of our nation. One must be careful what to do, say or even think for fear of being sued, threatened or imprisoned. Many of our legislators are furthering the PC cause by legislating it into the fabric of our nation in an attempt to effect changes of global proportions.


God has reached into his vast and unlimited resources to call forth a man of experience and determination and will to fight the battle and defeat the giant of Political Correctness. The man God has called knows well what it takes to win, because to him winning isn’t just everything, it’s the only thing.


When God called Donald Trump answered and given a mandate from God the battle for the very soul of America began and although the giant has not yet fallen, it has been defeated. Regardless of political persuasion or ethnicity the time is now for Christians to fall down on their knees to pray over America. Pray for our nation, our leaders and for our enemies. We pray for wisdom from God and the strength to become victorious so that God will set our nation free. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Nothing Social about Democratic Socialism



Nothing Social about Democratic Socialism


The rise of platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and other online social networks have given new meaning to the term “Social” and thus new life to Socialism in America.


For years Communist and Socialist ideologies have led to the failed regimes around the world in places like Cambodia, China, Cuba, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Laos, Myanmar (Burma), Russia, Venezuela and Vietnam. Pick any one and you see the same results, people without dignity, food, and hope of a better future.


There are very few documentaries from inside these societies to show the outside world what is really happening to everyday people stuck in a virtual vortex of despair and hopelessness. What we see are mostly state approved video snapshots showing happy, healthy and educated masses in an attempt by the authoritarian dictators to maintain power and control over their citizens.


In recent years American politics have produced home grown Democratic Socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders and more recently Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the champion of the Green New Deal.


What exactly is Democratic Socialism in American Politics?


  1. Democratic Socialism is a political movement advocating a gradual and peaceful transition from capitalism to socialism by democratic means.
  2. A Democratic welfare state that incorporates both capitalist and socialist practices.


Since 1830 Socialism has acquired several different meanings. It refers to a system of social organization in which private property and the distribution of income are subject to social control, but the concept of that control has varied, and the term has been interpreted in widely diverging ways, ranging from statist to libertarian, from Marxist to liberal. In the modern era, “pure” socialism has been seen only rarely and usually briefly in a few Communist regimes. Far more common are systems of social democracy, now often referred to as democratic socialism, in which extensive state regulation, with limited state ownership, has been employed by democratically elected governments (as in Sweden and Denmark) in the belief that it produces a fair distribution of income without impairing economic growth.


Recent Examples on the Web


According to the left’s own sources, democratic socialism will cost $42.5 trillion in its first decade. — Brian Riedl, Vox, “America might be ready for democratic socialism. It’s not ready for the bill.,” 7 Aug. 2018


His support for democratic socialism, Medicare for all, and other progressive polices helped set the stage for a major shift within the Democratic Party. — Lucy Diavolo, Teen Vogue, “Bernie Sanders Believes the 2018 Midterms Are a Chance for Young Voters to “Transform America”,” 2 Nov. 2018


The very idea of Democratic Socialism or any variation of Socialism or Communism runs against the very core of the American form of government. The United States of America was founded over 240 years ago as a Constitutional-Republic and is unlike any other government in the world.


The Rule of Law is based on the Constitution of the United States which was drafted by the Founding Fathers in accordance to biblical principles. The idea is a land where people are free to worship God, work hard and raise a family in safety while living the American Dream.


Today liberals equate socialism with social media. Where Facebook is a social networking platform where anything goes has been the norm until the recent political correctness craze, the train of thought equates to Facebook = Social Media therefore Socialism = Coolness. Let us run the country that way.


Look at the ridiculousness of some of the liberal lefts proposed social “policies” like a fart tax on farm animals; male urination into plastic containers that must be “cured” by the sun, then used as potable water for coffee, cooking and other uses. What’s next urine for brushing and rinsing to obtain fresh breath? The proposed ban on air travel would make it extremely hard for international travel unless we revert back to sailing vessels. What about guaranteed income for those unwilling to work? How would that work if all companies, corporations and private industry ceased to work? Turning unemployment offices into employment offices and stacking jobs for future use? Those are just a few bad ideas that have been expressed by the New Green Deal proposed by the liberal’s newest sensation Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.


I don’t know about you, but I will not stand by and let this common senseless nonsense turn the country that I love into the United States of Nonsense. I will never forget the oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES both foreign and domestic. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Flip the Coin Over



Flip the Coin Over


There have been a lot of comments about seeing things from the other point of view. So today I took a couple of hours first to watch President Trump’s 2nd Annual State of the Union in its entirety. It lasted almost a full 90 minutes.


I listened as President Trump gave a powerful address to a joint session of Congress and the American people. In true Trump style he didn’t mince words. He began by honoring a number of individuals who have suffered greatly for the sake of freedom; endured judicial injustices of a broken system being able to reenter as productive members of society; survived cancer and deal with the pain of great loss.


He recapped many of his successes; called failed policy decisions as he saw them; gave his solutions for success and announced that the State of the Union was Strong!


Throughout the speech he called on Congress to come to the table of compromise to find a workable solution to keep the government open, enhance border security for what he has termed a crisis on our southern border and fund a physical barrier or wall to restrain the hordes of illegal immigrants, dangerous drugs and prevent human trafficking.


That being said it was a great speech, one of the best I’ve witnessed by far. The response by seated Democrats in their white garb, likened to the white gowns and hoods of the KKK coupled with their body language and facial gestures made it plain their contempt for the President and his agenda. There were a few times when one or more Democrats would join in the applause after the President made it a point to call out the fact that more women are in business than in the past, and that more women are serving in the Congress than ever before. Yeah and they didn’t even notice that the President used an age old trick of flattery which they couldn’t resist.


I’ll admit there were also a few times when specific House and Senate members were called out by their recent rantings about giving Socialism a chance in America. Not going to happen under his watch. In fact the President’s statement about America will never be a socialist nation was clear and to the point.


Afterwards I hesitated but then I forwarded the recording to Democratic Party Responder Stacey Abrams of Georgia. I thought it was only fair since her speech was said to be about 10 minutes in length. I’ve see some of the memes of her and her crowd, then about her hard working family and her dad walking home in the rain with no coat after working overtime and being picked up in the family car. Without more details my first question was if he was working overtime why did he have to walk home when he had a fully functional car at home?


So yes I wanted to hear more from her and she provided important details about her working class parents, the life lessons they were taught as children. She even gave more details on why her dad was walking 30 miles home in the rain with no coat. He had given his coat to a homeless man he encountered along the way home. He said he knew that man would be alone, but that his family would be coming for him. He seemed to be a good man doing something for another without expectation of anything in return.


I’ll be honest I didn’t listen to her entire speech as it represented the response of the Democratic Party to the Presidents SOTU. I attempted to endure as she repeatedly blamed President Trump for shutting down the government and placing federal workers on furlough without pay, playing a political stunt. She continued stating that because of the President and the Republicans there were many companies closing and moving out of the country, placing thousands of Americans out of work. (Quite the contrary to what the President actually said in his address). Instead of offering actual points worthy of compromise to insure that America stayed open and workers stayed on the job, her entire point was to simply blame, blame, and blame Republicans.


Quite frankly I couldn’t sit and listen to her ramblings any longer. She is an educated woman, a lawyer and former Georgia State Legislator, who ran a failed campaign for Governor and even said she supported illegal immigrants to vote in elections. Typical of the Democratic Party, supporting Illegals over citizens and trying to hedge their bet as a political stunt that goes against the Constitution. So I shut her off in mid-sentence.


Usually there are two sides to every coin and at least two sides to every story. Except when it’s a Democrat Story, then there is only one side that matters and everyone else is a racist.


It has been two years since President Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States and the entire time he has reached out to Democrats and Republicans alike attempting to move this nation forward with an America First mentality. All I’ve seen so far is what amounts to a mental “Fart” from a majority of Congress.


Career lifetime politicians are worried they are going to have their power and prestige taken away by President Trump who has repeatedly campaigned on “Draining the Swamp”. Middle of the road politicians may see an opportunity to claim some of the power. Freshmen politicians of the 116th Congress are what we call “wet behind the ears” and don’t know or understand the inner workings of Congress. Several have stepped up their game in an attempt to display their mental prowess or their superior knowledge. For them might I suggest that you go back into your law school days of not too long ago and look up the Miranda Warning? What does it say vs what does it mean and when to apply it in the Congressional setting.


This last part is for American voters. We have a real situation in Congress. There has been a resurgence of legislators who are pushing socialistic and communistic ideologies, favor the radical Islamic Sharia Law over the Rule of Law backed by the Constitution of the United States. They are not compatible. The Constitution is based on Biblical theology and Islam is based on a manmade religion of domination. It is highly likely and verified that a minimum of 100 legislators out of 535 have been influenced, are working with or are currently agents of Socialism and Communism inside the  116th Congress.


If American citizens have not learned the lessons of U. S. and World history; have not studied the Constitution to ensure a clear understanding of the Bill of Rights and the Amendments that guarantee those rights. And if American citizens continue sticking their heads in the proverbial sand, there will come a time within the next 6 years where many of those rights will be terminated for lack of interest. Should that happen there will be no getting them back?


Voting is a right of American citizenship, as is public service at local, state or federal level. It has been said that if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. The Constitution guarantees certain rights for all citizens of the United States. Everyone else is here as a guest or as an illegal alien and there are no guaranteed rights for them. They have the right and responsibility of obeying all U. S. law, facing jail time or deportation. Anyone who enables, encourages or facilitates another person to commit a crime in the USA is also a lawbreaker and subject to being prosecuted as such.


There are many who serve in the U. S. military, the ready reserve or state National Guard or are continually on standby to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES, both foreign and domestic. The oath we took has no expiration.


We are patriots who love our nation, its anthem and the Flag of the United States of America and Almighty God who created us all. We are in a real world war on terrorism and against evil.


I love this quote, “It’s a very imperfect world, and you can’t always choose your friends. That’s life. But you can never fail to recognize your enemies.” – President Donald J. Trump


To paraphrase former President George W. Bush “You are either with us or against us”! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


The Contempt in Congress



The Contempt in Congress


We are told in the bible that followers of Christ will be known by their fruit (works) and that a tree produces either good fruit or bad fruit. The same can be said of any profession, corporation or place of employment and even in the home.


Aretha Franklin sang, “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” and we know that respect when taught in the home sets the stage for the real world of life. Children are to be raised with the biblical ground rules of Loving God; Honoring your parents, the elderly and those in authority; doing unto others as you would have them do unto you (do no harm); being satisfied with what you have; not wanting the things of others; and treating each life as if it is important (because God created it). Those children who learn these basic concepts at home tend to be better adults, more productive at work and able to make better choices in life.


Have you ever gone into a store or business that had a 5 gallon glass jar full of marbles? There was a sign that asked you to guess how many marbles? Maybe the winner would receive a monetary prize or a new bike? Have you ever written down and submitted your best guest estimate? Have you ever won?


When it comes to the U. S. Congress the average American thinks of them as that jar of marbles. Unless you have been a part of the goings on in Congress or really studied U. S. History the shroud of secrecy shields the inner workings and the individuals who have been elected to political office, their personal staff and their daily routines are a mystery. We know that according to the U. S. Constitution there are 100 members of the U. S. Senate and 435 members of the U. S. House of Representatives. That gives us a total of 535 “marbles” in our congressional jar.


We know that they are members of three main political parties: Democrats, Independents and Republicans. In this politically correct climate why don’t we refer to them as Democratic-Americans, Independent-Americans and Republican-Americans? Maybe it’s because it would sound stupid?


One may only to go online at to access the U. S. Constitution to read Article 1 for the criteria of becoming a member of Congress.


The criteria for the U. S. Senate, is 30 years of age and a citizen for 9 years and an inhabitant of the state from which chosen. Senators are elected for six years and are divided into three classes. The first class vacates the second year, the second class expires the fourth year and the third class expires the sixth year. The Vice President of the United States is the President of the Senate. The Senate shall choose their officers and also a President pro tempore, in the absence of the Vice President or when he shall exercise the office of President of the United States. The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments. Then the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside.


The criteria of becoming a member of the U. S. House of Representatives, 25 years of age, a citizen for 7 years and an inhabitant of the state from which chosen. Representatives are elected for 4 years. Representatives are to direct taxes (in the original Constitutional document). Their members are chosen by state based upon population. They are to choose their Speaker and other officers. The House has the sole power of Impeachment.


The Senate and the House shall judge the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members and a majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do business. They each may determine the rules of its proceedings and to punish its members for disorderly behavior and with two thirds concurrence expel a member.


The U. S. Congress has many facets of the inner workings that are not made public, such as having many as 512 Congressional Caucuses, which equate to separate voting blocs each with a separate agenda. Of these Caucuses I have written several articles about the Congressional Black Caucus now with 55 members in the 116th Congress. The CBC prides itself on a “black only” membership and has as a number one priority the rooting out racism within the Trump administration and government while ignoring obvious racism in the Congressional Black Caucus. They have opposed Republican Presidents since Richard Nixon refused to recognize them as a legitimate Caucus.


The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) was established in 1971 by 13 founding members. The founding members include:

Rep. Shirley A. Chisholm (D-N.Y.)

Rep. William L. Clay, Sr. (D-Mo.)

Rep. George W. Collins (D-Ill.)

Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.)

Rep. Ronald V. Dellums (D-Calif.)

Rep. Charles C. Diggs, Jr. (D-Mich.)

Rep. Augustus F. Hawkins (D-Calif.)

Rep. Ralph H. Metcalfe (D-Ill.)

Rep. Parren J. Mitchell (D-Md.)

Rep. Robert N.C. Nix, Sr. (D-Pa.)

Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.)

Rep. Louis Stokes (D-Ohio)

Del. Walter E. Fauntroy (D-D.C.)

The Congressional Black Caucus currently has two members of the U. S. Senate, one of whom is of Indian descent, Senator Kamala Harris’s parents are from India, yet by her skin color she identifies as black (African-American) and it would appear that the CBC has already broken it’s longstanding rule as a “Blacks Only Club”.


Of the U. S. Congress that are some interesting items to consider, out of 535 members, there are verifiably 50 current members who are either Socialists, Communist and another 50 who have leanings toward Islam and their allegiance is not to the U. S. Constitution.  Of these there are 16 members of the Congressional Black Caucus who appear in author and historian Trevor Loudon’s book Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists And Progressives In The US Congress.


I have taken from Trevor Loudon’s listing of these 50 Communists and Socialists and utilizing my own research of the Congressional Black Caucus provided Caucuses, Committees, Taskforces and Democratic Party Working Groups.


You may be surprised (as I was) to see many of the names and faces prominent on Main Stream Media outlets and realize the underlying motives and agenda to undercut President Trump and his administration with completely manufactured resistance. Simply connect the dots with the Democratic Party, the Congressional Black Caucus, Communist Party, Democratic Socialists of America and other nefarious SWAMP entities pushing open border agendas and illegal immigrant voting “rights”.


2019 List of Socialists and Communists in Congress Trevor Loudon 2-4-2019


Trevor Loudon had been asked to compile a list of socialists and communists in Congress. A friend of his was challenged to name “even two socialists in Congress.” Altogether, if you add in Islamist connections he places about 100 members of the House of Representatives would struggle to pass a low-level background security check..but guess what? There are no security checks in Congress.

As a side note former President Barack Obama was a proud member of the CBC as a U. S. Senator and alumni continued to be a staunch supporter of the CBC as president, and his maternal grandparents were solidly connected card carrying members of the Communist Party from Washington state and in Hawaii during the time of his birth.


Alumni and former Rep. Keith Ellison was an active and vocal member of the CBC and the Democratic Party before being elected as Minnesota’s Attorney General in the 2018 mid-term elections.


Much of my writings about the Congressional Black Caucus may seem redundant or repetitive in nature, but I assure you that there is a direct correlation between the racial violence, rioting and demonstrations by leftist and Democratic causes, the resistance within the U. S. Congress and the Congressional Black Caucus. This connection has either gone unseen or kept under the cover of secrecy from the American people.


I will continue to investigate until such time as competent Congressional leadership or an internal IG investigation is launched to bring to accountability those members of the U. S. Congress who do not take their oath of office and allegiance to the United States of America seriously.


It is by an act of Almighty God that we are all created equal and through the dedication of fellow Patriots we continue to be the land of the brave and home of the free! – I am the Real Truckmaster!


The State of the Union is Strong

SOTU 2019 President Trump



The State of the Union is Strong


A partial quote by President Trump tonight as he prepared to conclude his second State of The Union address at the nation’s capital, “The State of the Union is Strong”, declaring to the nation that much good and prosperity have gripped the nation over the past 2 years. While most Democrats and many Republican members of Congress chose to sit in disagreement, there was a point made about more women were working today, and that there were many more women in Congress than ever before, that brought even the staunch hard core Never Trumpers to their feet as they clapped their hearts out in support (of that one portion of the SOTU).


For those who know me and for those who don’t I’ve been studying the U.S. Congress trying to figure out how elected members can deny every positive thing accomplished by President Trump in his first 2 years in office. From the hostages coming home from North Korea to the prospect of US forces coming home from the endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it would seem that the liberals would like to just keep things as they have been for a very long time.


From what I saw tonight The State of Resistance is weak, and as people leapt to their feet in applause, the TRDs (Trump Resistance Democrats) felt justified by making a statement against support of the things Americans have been seeking. The statement they made was a pitiful one at best.


I’ve never heard a President praise so many others and encourage Americans to stand strong, not as Democrats or Republicans but as Americans as we move into the next phase of development, using words like “WE” and “OUR” and did not even once use the word “I”. He ended with God Bless You and May God Bless the United States. In my humble opinion it was a great speech, sought a united front throughout the nation and in the U. S. Congress! – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Looking Through a Skewed Lens



Looking Through a Skewed Lens


I began watching “Red Tails” on cable recently and couldn’t help but relate what was happening on screen with the happenings of today. The young Captain had gone into the Officers Club and was told to leave because of his race. At first he complied, but stopped short when he decided enough is enough. He went back inside and began fighting with another officer. It quickly turned into a brawl. The next scene was him lying in a cell and being released to his commanding officer a Colonel.


The Colonel asked him what he was trying to do and said the Captain reminded him of a young kid on the street with his arm bare and his hand clenched and knotted up in a fist. The Colonel told him that if you go around looking at the world through a skewed lens your results will be skewed too (paraphrased).


That struck a chord with me. That’s exactly how racial division and political correctness affect the nation today. There are those on the liberal left, those in the Democratic Party and even those in the Republican Party who feel that their politics trump opposing views.


It has gotten so bad that those who are affected by this skewed liberal left political view of America have gone past the point of calling evil good and good evil. They attack without merit. In fact if they “perceive” that something or someone is calling them out in dissent they incite violence, mayhem and even physical harm or death. So arrogant are they that openly calling for the death of a sitting president (unheard of before) have become a common theme among career and fledgling freshmen members of Congress.


Traditionally it has been a requirement for select government officials and members of Congress to swear an oath of allegiance to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES both foreign and domestic. It maybe because they don’t realize that ALL ENEMIES = Foreign Nations, Tribes and Religious Factions who are hostile toward the United States of America. It may also be possible that ALL ENEMIES = Domestic, home grown, migrated and even brain washed American citizens who are hostile toward the United States of America.


Anyone who has served in the Armed Forces of the United States knows perfectly well that protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES = Foreign and Domestic. That includes those acting aggressively toward our nation’s leader, our military or against citizens of the United States of America by hostile state actors. They have taken “the oath” very seriously and there is no expiration date!


What we are seeing is unconscionable for Members of Congress in their quest to retain power and privilege to rise up as hostile state actors against the nation, the President and even We The People of the United States. To openly and publicly transmit, encourage and conduct mayhem that is anti-American in nature is tantamount to Treason or Subversion.


The number one priority of the government is the safety and security of its citizens. The one thing that lifetime politicians have forgotten is that the people are the deciding factor for America. The government and its representatives work for the people, not the other way around.


What we are seeing today are real life Swamp Creatures in a real death roll as they lose the power they have accumulated over time since they first swore the oath and became publicly elected servants of the people.


It may be that the corruption that has taken hold of the United States Congress has become common place so long that it is seen as “just the way Washington politics works” and we are expected to get used to it. It behooves every member of Congress, regardless of political party or other clannish affiliation (Caucuses) to examine themselves and their own “agenda” or purpose. Does it represent the people who voted to send them to Congress? Or has making it into Congress simply a feather in their own cap for financial or political gain?


Back to the Colonel in “Red Tails” who told the Captain he had nothing against him but had the highest expectations for him. It is the same with members of Congress, you were sent to “The Hill” with the highest expectations of the American people. You were sent to look out and legislate for OUR interests and if you are unable or unwilling to legislate to keep our families safe, our nation secure and our military prepared for war, it is time you resigned!


There is no “career” in the Legislative Branch; it is as a public servant that you have been trusted to serve in our behalf. Nobody is above the law. When the lawmaker becomes the lawbreaker it is time for justice to be served! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
