Examining Planned Parenthood Federation of America

 

From what I gathered in just an hour or so of doing a Google search on Planned Parenthood I am sickened by the fact that not only does the US government contribute over $1B annually to fund this organization, and to allow it tax exemption the same as a church or other non-profits.

The purpose of this article is not to cast doubt on Planned Parenthood but to illuminate what appears to be the tip of the iceberg. What we see above the waterline is a mere portion of what amounts to a London based worldwide organization that provides population control and management via the means of abortion. If Planned Parenthood were any other organization it would qualify under organized crime and conspiracy to commit murder in accordance to the Rule of Law under the US Constitution.

What is even more sickening than organized legal death facilities scattered across the United States and around the globe, is the fact that women, governors, legislators, nurses and doctors are gleeful and giddy over the prospect of the genocide their own offspring.

Psalm 139:14 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.

 

Who is man that he should destroy that which God has created in the womb designed to nourish and protect a precious human life. Wow unto those who engage in this inhumane practice.

Now that I’ve said my piece, here are statistics on abortions 2000 – 2016, followed by the 103 year history of Planned Parenthood in their own words.

US Abortion Statistics: An Honest Analysis – Spencer P. Morrison April 17, 2018

That’s why I wrote this article.

I’ve collected (and organized) some of the most basic statistics on abortion, and also answered some of the most common statistical questions, and corrected some common misconceptions—we can’t have a debate unless we get our facts straight.

First-thing’s-first: the following table records the number of abortions per year in the US, how many of which were “first time” abortions, and also the cumulative number of abortions since 1970.

Also, if you’re interested in exploring the data yourself, you can download the abortion statistics as an excel file—it’s much more detailed than what you see below, which I parsed for brevity and clarity.

Planned Parenthood

103 Years the History of Planned Parenthood

 

In 1916, Planned Parenthood was founded on the idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams. Today, Planned Parenthood affiliates operate more than 600 health centers across the United States, and Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading provider and advocate of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people. Planned Parenthood is also the nation’s largest provider of sex education. How did we get where we are today? Learn more about our 100-year history.

 

The Beginning
Planned Parenthood traces its roots back to nurse, educator and founder Margaret Sanger — whose activism changed the world. Sanger had the revolutionary idea that women should control their own bodies — and thus their own destinies. Imagine that!

 

Sanger grew up in an Irish family of 11 children in Corning, New York. Her mother, in fragile health from many pregnancies, including 7 miscarriages, died at age 50 of tuberculosis. Her mother’s story — along with her work as a nurse on the Lower East Side of New York — inspired Sanger to travel to Europe and study birth control methods at a time when educating people about birth control was illegal in the United States.

 

On October 16, 1916, Sanger — together with her sister Ethel Byrne and activist Fania Mindell — opened the country’s first birth control clinic in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Women lined up down the block to get birth control information and advice from Sanger, Byrne, and Mindell.

 

Nine days later, police raided the clinic and shut it down. All 3 women were charged with crimes related to sharing birth control information. Sanger refused to pay the fine and spent 30 days in jail, where she educated other inmates about birth control.

 

Although the Brownsville clinic was shut down, Sanger went on to travel the country to share her vision — and the Planned Parenthood movement began.

 

A Movement Begins  

In 1923, Sanger opened the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau in Manhattan to provide birth control devices to women and to collect statistics about the safety and long-term effectiveness of birth control. That same year, Sanger incorporated the American Birth Control League, an ambitious new organization that examined the global impact of population growth, disarmament, and famine. The two organizations eventually merged to become Planned Parenthood® Federation of America, Inc. (PPFA®).

 

The continued work of Sanger and efforts from other birth control proponents led to a 1936 court ruling that birth control devices and information would no longer be classified as obscene, and could be legally distributed in New York, Connecticut, and Vermont. While it took another 30 years for these rights to be extended to married couples (but just married couples) throughout the rest of the country, it was an historic step toward making birth control available to everyone.

 

The Development of the Pill

In 1948, Planned Parenthood awarded a small grant to biologists Gregory Pincus, John Rock, and M.C. Chang to conduct research into a birth control pill.

 

Katharine Dexter McCormick, a leader in the suffrage movement and the League of Women Voters, was head of the research process and its primary funder.

In 1956, the first large-scale human trial of the birth control pill was carried out in Puerto Rico. The step was critical to the pill’s development at the time, but the testing conducted on Puerto Rican women was done without informed consent — now considered unethical, and in some cases, illegal. Puerto Rican women, unaware they were participating in an experimental clinical trial with hormone levels 20 times higher than birth control pills on the market today resulted in harmful side effects, such as dizziness, cramps, and vomiting.

As time went on, the pill was refined to become the safe and effective birth control method used by millions of women today. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the sale of pills for contraception on May 9, 1960. Within 5 years, 1 out of every 4 married women in the U.S. under the age of 45 had used the pill.
While stateside acceptance of Sanger’s vision was slow, global progress was swift. In Bombay, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) was founded at the 3rd International Conference on Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger served as its president from 1952-1959. Today, Planned Parenthood Federation of America is the U.S. Member Association to IPPF [International Planned Parenthood Foundation].

 

A New Era for Women

The pill soon changed the lives of women and families across the U.S. and around the world. Finally there was an easy, effective, and reversible way to prevent pregnancy. But the pill still wasn’t available nationwide. Some states banned all forms of contraception.

 

In 1965, in the landmark case Griswold v. Connecticut, the Supreme Court ruled that states couldn’t deny the sale of contraception to married couples. That led 10 states to legalize birth control.

 

Seven years later, in 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Massachusetts statute that banned the distribution of contraceptives to unmarried people in Eisenstadt v. Baird. So by the early 70s anyone — single or married — was allowed to get birth control from their doctor.

 

In 1970, Title X of the Public Health Services Act became law. It established public funding for family planning and sex education programs in the U.S. That meant Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health organizations were able to provide birth control and sex education services for more people, especially in low-income communities. To this day, Title X funding is critical to accessing sexual and reproductive health care.

 

By the early 1970s, the role of women in public life was starting to change, and a movement for safe and legal abortion emerged. State after state changed their laws to allow abortion in certain cases. After New York legalized abortion in 1970, a Planned Parenthood health center in Syracuse, NY was the first Planned Parenthood health center to offer abortion services.

 

In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of abortion rights in the landmark case Roe vs. Wade, citing the right to privacy. Roe vs. Wade guaranteed the right to safe and legal abortion within the first 3 months of pregnancy in all 50 states. Roe vs. Wade remains the law today.

 

A short-lived but crucial era of abortion rights expansion followed. Laws requiring spousal consent for abortion and strict parental consent rules for minors seeking abortion were soon struck down in the courts, removing harmful obstacles to abortion.

 

However, in 1976, the Hyde Amendment made it illegal for federal public funding to pay for abortion services except in a few circumstances, such as cases of rape, incest, or a life-endangering pregnancy. So even while abortion remained legal, it was becoming out of reach for low-income people in need of financial assistance, or for those who receive health care through Medicaid or Medicare.

 

Through legal victories and setbacks, Planned Parenthood continued to grow into its role as a trusted sexual and reproductive health care provider and educator, establishing affiliates in communities across the country, and becoming a leading advocate in the fight for reproductive rights.

 

Victories and Violence

The expansion of abortion rights in the 1970s resulted in fierce backlash from opponents of safe and legal abortion in the 1980s and 90s, with tragic consequences.

 

Extremists staged campaigns of patient intimidation, and committed acts of violence — including murder — against abortion providers, as well as bombings and arsons at health centers.

 

Also, opponents of safe and legal abortion began gaining strong political influence. The Reagan and George H.W. Bush presidencies resulted in significant setbacks to the reproductive rights movement. In 1992, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutional right to an abortion, but allowed states to put their own regulations about abortion into place. Planned Parenthood v. Casey allowed states to put limits on abortion — such as mandatory waiting periods of more than 24 hours — that made it harder for patients to access abortion care.

 

During this time, laws were passed that restricted federal funds from health care providers and organizations who discussed abortion with their patients — including the Title X “gag” rule and the Mexico City Policy, or “global gag rule.” In 1993, the Clinton administration reversed these rules — but it was not the last time the world would suffer from the global gag rule.

 

But throughout these difficult times, Planned Parenthood remained steadfast in its commitment to patients and its vision of a world without barriers to sexual and reproductive health care.

 

In 1987, Planned Parenthood began offering free or low-cost HIV testing in communities around the country. In 1989, millions marched in Washington in support of reproductive rights. That same year, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Faye Wattleton founded the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, a 501c4 organization, to engage in public education campaigns, grassroots organizing, and legislative and electoral activity.

 

Throughout the 1990s, Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health experts successfully advocated for  FDA approval of new, effective methods of birth control — including the birth control shot, the ring, the patch, and the implant. In 1999, the FDA approved Plan B emergency contraception, and Planned Parenthood began work to make emergency contraception widely available at its health centers and  educate the public about emergency contraception, also known as the “morning-after pill.”
In 1996, Planned Parenthood launched www.plannedparenthood.org, which made expert medical and sexual health information easily  accessible for everyone. Today, 76 million people reach Planned Parenthood online every year.

 

A New Millennium, a Second Century

Scientific advances in sexual and reproductive health soared as the 90s closed, and the 21st century began with the promise of expanded birth control and abortion options.

 

In 2000, the FDA approved mifepristone, known as medication abortion or the abortion pill, after several years of delays due to political opposition. Planned Parenthood health centers were then able to offer another safe and effective option to patients seeking abortion.

 

In 2005, the first Planned Parenthood affiliate began providing hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for transgender patients. In 2006, the HPV vaccine was approved, and Planned Parenthood health centers began providing this lifesaving cancer prevention method at health centers across the country. The same year, Plan B emergency contraception became available for purchase without a prescription for women ages 18+. (In 2013, Plan B and similar brands became available over-the-counter for people of all ages.)

But these advancements were tempered by a political climate increasingly hostile to reproductive health care. The George W. Bush administration reinstated the global gag rule, galvanized opponents of safe and legal abortion by passing a ban on a rarely used later-stage abortion procedure, and worked to establish a new legal status for frozen embryos. Funding for “abstinence-only” sexuality education increased, leaving students across the country without medically accurate sexual health information.

 

In 2009, The Obama administration overturned the global gag rule and reaffirmed America’s commitment to sexual and reproductive health at home and abroad. In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was passed. It expanded access to health insurance, allowing more people to get the health care they needed. The law includes a provision that requires insurance plans to cover birth control and preventive care services, like cancer screenings and STD testing. Planned Parenthood has worked to educate 300,000 people about the new health insurance law, helping them get coverage.

 

After years of state by state restrictions on abortion, in 2016 the Supreme Court ruled that states could not create rules that placed an “undue burden” on people seeking abortion, in the Whole Woman’s Health vs. Hellerstedt case — a victory for those in favor of safe and legal abortion. In response, Planned Parenthood vowed to redouble its efforts to fight abortion restrictions across the country.

 

2016 also marked 100 years since Margaret Sanger, Ethel Byrne, and Fania Mindell opened the first clinic in Brooklyn.

 

Planned Parenthood continues to reach millions of people today.

 

God’s decree “Thou Shalt Not Kill” proclaims that murder is a sin in the eyes of God. The fact that the United States has made abortion legal does not negate what God has declared.

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely – A Look Back

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely – A Look Back

 

It is foolish for man to think he possess power and control over anything. There is only one who has absolute power and that is the Creator God who does not relegate that power to the creation. Beginning with Adam man has had a problem with power and control. In the Garden of Eden man had the power to eat of the fruit, converse with God daily and name the birds of the air, the animals on land and the fish in the sea, yet could not control the temptation to eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, forbidden by God himself.

 

The result was an immediate separation from God due to the sin of disobedience. This was followed by the blame game as man tried lying to God (who knows and sees all) in an attempt to place the blame on everyone but himself. God asked, Adam blamed God for giving him Eve; Eve blamed the serpent for deceiving her; and the serpent laughed. God destined man to work his entire life, woman to bear children and her children to be at odds with the serpent.

 

The serpent would have his head smashed by the foot of man, the second Adam in the personhood of Jesus, the Christ who was God’s only begotten son who would be born of woman, die on the cross for the sins of man and take the keys to hell, be raised on the third day to sit at the right hand of God the Father until the time he would return to earth on a White Horse of fire.

 

To show how foolish it is for man to think he is in control, power, money and even the wealth of kings is never enough. The more you have, the more you want more. Money is power and power is money. It is the nature of man to be greedy.

 

Moses was given the law from God in the form of the 10 Commandments in Exodus 20:2-17 and again in Deuteronomy 5:6-21. The essence of the law was to love God with your entire being, love your neighbor as you love yourself and whenever possible to live in peace with everyone.

 

At one point in history man began working together to build a tower into the heavens. Had it been successful man would have no need of God. So God confused their speaking into many languages and scattered them to the ends of the earth. Man has been in war against man ever since. Fighting, conquering in the quest for power, absolute power.

 

The military is structured with a hierarchy of power called ranks and titles. With each come commitment and responsibilities to the branch of service, the unit and its mission and to the men and women who get the job done.

 

There used to be an accelerated promotion program referred to as “shake and bake” where individuals are placed through a rapid training course and become sergeants. The intent is to provide leaders to take troops into battle. There are pros and cons of this program with many successes and many failures.

 

It takes someone with a certain maturity to handle the responsibilities of leadership. There are many decisions to be made that affect life, limb and property in order to accomplish the mission. Without that maturity individuals are unable to handle it. It is referred to as having a “big head” (their head swells with their new found rank and power). The same thing happens in everyday life outside the military too.

 

Take any company, corporation or franchise that promotes from within, a worker becomes a shift leader or supervisor. Where he was working alongside his buddies and co-workers, now he’s the “Boss”. His relationship has changed and he cannot give the appearance of favoritism. He tells people what to do and things become tense. Those who don’t comply with his often ridiculous instructions are “written up”. Then their hours are reduced resulting in smaller paychecks. Soon they quit.

 

We see this in politics too. Starting at the local level, maybe city council or county commissioner level where one must actually run for office. There are promises made and votes to gain. Once the election is over the promises often become a distant memory to be forgotten, until the next election cycle. The quest for power has begun. Next it’s mayor, governor or maybe state legislature, then on to Washington, D.C. There are committees, panels and it doesn’t take long to feel so all important and one could make the argument for irreplaceability. It now becomes a matter of longevity in office. Promises made but forgotten as the goals have changed and staying in power is paramount.

 

On the national level there are “pork barrel” projects for home districts or states that must be advanced. Lobbyists groups have special interests to promote and they need legislators to come on board. Often times there are financial “kickbacks”, vacations or other means of insuring their support. Remember power is money and money is power and often giving the illusion of absolute power and being untouchable or slightly above the law.

 

It is the voters who do not see inside the beltway or inside the halls of congress. They do not see the wrangling for positions of power, committees that influence the outcome of votes. They do not see the corruption or deceit that goes on daily. The name game influences the next election and voters often just check off names by political party and move on. That is exactly what some legislators are counting on, the checking off the boxes without any real investigation into whether or not a change is needed.

 

Once legislators are elected they are like fish in a pond, looking for committees to join or be appointed to, caucuses to join or create to advance their personal agendas. The longer they are in office more powerful they become. The more powerful they become the more they long to remain in office. If they are strong forceful speakers they may be the voice of a particular piece of legislation. Or they may simply occupy an assigned seat and vote as they are told to vote. Only a few have decided not to run for reelection after a single term because of the politics.

 

I have a simple question – how can any politician stomach graft, corruption and grossly padded bank accounts while serving as “public servants” in the halls of congress?

 

Can any legislator seriously say that they have done all they can do for the good of the constituents who got them elected without doing it for personal gain? For those who have been in office more than 2 terms, what have you accomplished for the nation – National Security; Jobs; Economy?

 

Or has the sum of your existence in congress defined by your commitment to obstructing a sitting president to satisfy someone else’s ego? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Examining the Congressional Black Caucus

Examining the Congressional Black Caucus

 

Earlier I posted a series of mems about the CBC. They were short, informative and deliberate. It is not because I’m prejudiced or a racist, but BECAUSE the CBC is a racist organization inside the Congress of the United States. Many don’t realize the effect the CBC has on the Congress, the government and the American people. The members of the CBC are vocal, in your face and hate President Trump with a passion. The focus of the CBC is the discrediting, disrupting and ultimately removing President Trump from office.

 

From the very beginning of the Trump administration the CBC became visible as they boycotted the presidential inauguration. One of the early members of the CBC to be heard was Rep. Frederica S. Wilson D-FL, who interrupted a private and personal phone call between President Trump and the widow of an AFRICOM soldier killed by insurgents in Africa. Her selfish actions were unconscionable as she attempted to discredit and shame President Trump.

 

Another CBC member who has been extremely vocal with her hatred of President Trump has been Rep. Maxine Waters D-CA who has chanted “Impeach Trump” so many times she received the appropriate nickname from the president, “Mad Max”. She has enabled her followers to stalk, harass and engage in physical contact with Trump Administration and White House staff, even sitting Senators and their families. Such a disgrace!

 

Other names are the infamous Rep. Keith Ellison D-MN who while running for MN Attorney General had sexual assault and/or abuse charges levied against him, but he still won. We’ve heard from Rep. John Lewis, Rep. James E. Clyburn, Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep. Yvette D. Clarke, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Sen. Cory Booker, Rep. Mia Love, Rep. Stacey Plaskett and more recently Sen. Kamala D. Harris. Each member has what looks like a choreographed part to play in the CBC musical against President Trump.

 

What many fail to see is that the Congressional Black Caucus is funded in the House and all of its members are from both the House and the Senate and all are black by choice. This racially charged caucus has become infused into more than 90+ congressional caucuses and committees, and when former Rep. Keith Ellison was a member he was also a high member in the Democratic Party. Thus it is conceivable that the CBC has basically hijacked the Democratic Party. Some of the CBC members have been around in congress since 1991.

 

The CBC has been known to have a radical association with Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam (a terrorist organization). Former President Barack Obama is an alumnus of the CBC, which he joined as a Senator from Illinois.

 

The CBC has an active part in instigating hostility against law enforcement through their taunts, and by their actions stirring up racial tensions. They have actively sought to remove CSA statues, Religious monuments and even attempted to have US military installations renamed, in effect wiping out all traces of US Veterans who were members of the CSA.

 

Contrary to what you may think you know or believe. This article is about racism in the Congress of the United States perpetuated by the racist group known as the Congressional Black Caucus. They have been a slow moving steam roller gently rolling over congress until they have become emboldened to the point of feeling untouchable. Such is their entrenched power the Democratic Party and the Republican Party congressional leadership have been powerless to act.

 

Nothing will change unless American citizens stop the infighting, come together and demand an end to this and any other congressional caucus that prevents elected legislators from doing their duty as public servants and begin representing the constituents who sent them into office.

 

We should not be Democratic-Americans or Republican-Americans. We are Americans, citizens of the United States of America, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

 

Stand proudly facing the flag, reciting the pledge of allegiance and you can call yourself a patriot. Failing or unwilling to do that, step aside and go to your safe space and wait for Uber to take you to the border where you will find solace in the company of others who do not share OUR love for our country. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

By Whose Authority?

1-24-2019

 

By Whose Authority?

 

God created everything in the Heavens and on the Earth. He is the ultimate organizer, giving authority on the Earth, as it is in Heaven. The organization of government is established to bring order out of chaos. Rulers, leaders and kings have been established by the will of Almighty God. He places them in office and he removes them in office as he desires. The winds and the seasons exist as God intended. One needs only to read starting in the book of Genesis.

 

We know that everyone has an opinion about everything, even those who say they do not. In my opinion, opinions are like onions and everyone has one, wants one or hates those who express theirs. That is what we call human nature, given to man from God. You see it’s not about us, what we like or dislike; what we feel is right or wrong; it’s totally about what God has said through his Word.

 

The government of the United States of America has been established like no other government on the planet. The rule of law is based upon biblical principles and written down in the form of the Constitution of the United States. The underlying premise is that we are all created equal under God. We have the basic right to life, liberty and happiness owing our allegiance to Almighty God. As citizens of this great nation we are to submit ourselves to the government and to hold the government accountable.

 

There is a universal truth that absolute power corrupts absolutely. We see that every day when we look at our elected officials who have pledged to defend and protect the Constitution and abide by the rule of law. They have been sent or placed into office by the will of the people and serve with the authority and in the official capacity of their office and/or position. We expect them to serve honorably and in our best interests under the Constitution. We are not to sit in judgement of anybody because only God sits that high and he holds them accountable unto himself.

 

Since the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump 2 years ago he is the leader of this great nation. He speaks with the authority given by the Constitution and as one appointed by Almighty God. In world and domestic affairs the president is the United States. His decisions good or bad are the decisions of the nation and God holds him accountable, just as God holds each of us accountable for OUR actions, deeds and words.

 

The members of Congress are no different. They have been appointed by God and elected by the people. They too have a responsibility to act honorably and are bound by the authority of the Constitution. Their decisions good or bad are seen by God and he alone is their judge.

 

We the people of the United States have the ultimate right to address the government, its leaders and elected officials and to hold them accountable in accordance to the Constitution. Our voice is best heard at the polling place during national and local elections. We can and should contact them often and let them know when they are doing good or badly. We hold the power. Our rights as citizens are spelled out in the Constitution. The government and elected officials have only the rights given them by the people.

 

Recently President Trump cancelled the US delegation to Devos and had already withdrawn the United States from the Paris Accord. That being said there were no US officials there. Yesterday there was a news video of former Secretary of State (under Obama) John Kerry standing at a podium behind the Seal of the United States, flanked by US flags calling for President Trump to resign.

 

My question to Mr. Kerry, by Whose Authority do you blatantly claim to represent ME or any other citizen of the United States calling for or demanding anything from the President of the United States?

 

My earlier point is that absolute power corrupts absolutely is clearly seen here with a US military Veteran turned war protestor who climbed the political ladder from Senator to failed presidential hopeful, then Secretary of State to private citizen turned traitor. It is not the place of any US citizen to stand on foreign soil and denounce the nation of his birth while appearing to be an official spokesperson.

 

I call for an investigation into his treasonous conduct and the termination of any and all security clearances held. I question his allegiance to and for his citizenship in the United States to be revoked.

 

Stop the political, racial and class division of the United States. This nation must stand united, under one God, one flag and under one President. I stand behind President Donald J. Trump. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Speak No Evil

1-21-2019

 

Speak no Evil

 

That was basically the topic of last Sunday’s sermon at our church. It easy to preach but I find it much harder to do especially while blogging. Didn’t Jesus say that we will be known by our fruit (what we do)?

 

In America we have so much politics and political correctness that gets thrown in our face on a daily, no an hourly basis. Every minute of every day someone is trashing someone else and it gets so easy to jump on board. It’s so easy to become offended by what someone else says, or by what you THINK someone else has said.

 

I remember taking a class on communication while on active duty so many years ago. You may have taken a similar class where everyone sits around facing into the circle. The teacher will hand one person a sentence to read. He will instruct that person to tell the person next to him what he read then tell him to tell the one next to him. So on and so forth and the last person will stand up and tell the group what was told to him. Then the first person will stand up and read the original statement.

 

What usually happened went like this:

 

“Suzie’s dog Spot chased the cat up the tree.”

 

By the time it makes the circle is ends up like this:

 

“Suzie chased the neighbor’s cat and her dog Spot up the tree.”

 

This same thing happens today when President Trump makes a statement or address on TV it could take him anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. Immediately afterwards TV commentators will spend hours if not days discussing what the president really said and it’s often not even close.

 

That is why President Trump uses Twitter. He can make a statement and still there are “experts” who retweet and comment on what he really said. Unless you follow the president on Twitter you have no idea what was originally said. A real problem isn’t at all what the president said or did. It’s what he is reported to have said or did.

 

The same is true for members of congress who attempt to convey to the public their self-importance virtually at every opportunity. There are some who make outlandish statements without “fact checking” themselves. Someone once said to stand in front of a mirror and practice before you make a speech. That art of preparation has been lost with podcasts and live broadcasting. Often comments are made on the spur of the moment with erroneous data given as “fact”. When there are multiple details given, the focus is totally on a single error, while ignoring the real facts.

 

Remember the story of the math teacher who wrote a series of problems on the chalkboard?

 

2 X 4 = 9

2 X 5 = 10

2 X 6 = 12

 

The students began to laugh and talk among themselves as she continued to list 10 problems. After she finished she turned to her students and asked them why they focused on the 1st problem that was wrong? She said that is how it is in life after graduation. You can do 1,000 good things in life, but people will focus on the 1 thing you did wrong while totally ignoring the 999 that was good.

 

That is what we see going on in today’s politics. Petty political jealousy where their focus is no the manufactured negativity while ignoring the positive atmosphere and rising economy by politicians who talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. In order to get elected politicians make outlandish promises, with no intention of following through to honor them. Once in power their primary objective is to remain in power by making more unfillable promises during subsequent election campaigning.

 

What President Trump has done from day one in office is begin to do the things he said during the campaign and in 2 years there have been many of those campaign promises filled while battling against those who oppose him. His promises threaten their power and position. The president has even taken hold of the promises and legislative ideas of former presidents seeking to bring them to completion with a certain level of success and full blown resistance by those who see their power diminishing. It used to be said that the proof is in the pudding, but in today’s real world pudding comes from the store already made.

 

There are many who see themselves as patriots on the leading edge of a coming storm. What they fail to see is the direction the storm is headed and by the time they open their eyes they will find themselves looking directly into the face of the storm.

 

Christian’s love God above all else and will fight to protect their family and possess a patriotic love for our nation which we will protect at all costs. Nationalism is the Patriotic love for country over self.

 

The man or woman who has no loyalty to the nation is not a patriot. They will lose everything they selfishly stand for (self-interest, money and power). – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Democrat Congress European Vacation Plans Spoiled

1-18-2019

 

Democrat Congress European Vacation Plans Spoiled

 

Somebody didn’t get the memo and the bus load of Democrats headed to their “free ride” at taxpayer expense had to turn that bus around. That’s right that bus full of useless baggage was on the way to the airport before somebody probably read President Trumps tweet cancelling the military’s “Demojunket” and suggesting time would be better spent negotiating with him.

 

Well all’s well that ends well, right? Instead of the European Vacation Madam Speaker went to Reagan International Airport for her must needed trip home to California presumably to finish her family bonding after having to cut short her Hawaiian Christmas Vacation.

 

I presume that now the Democrats will have ample time airing out their dirty laundry, or at least sending it to the drycleaners, after all the sweat and toil exerted during their all expense paid recent trip to Puerto Rico.

 

All except newly elected Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-NY who has been roaming the halls of the congressional office buildings searching in vain for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. I wonder if she had to purchase one of those tourist maps, or did she not know the offices are listed online at the official websites for either the House of Senate? Incidentally what do you suppose she was going to do when she found it, “Run Train” on him? Isn’t that a progressively ghetto term for “gang rape”? Just when you think Congressional Democrats have reached a plateau it seems that the bar is lowered still further.

 

It seems to me that the only time Congressional Democrats stop bashing President Trump is when they are fast asleep on their way to some far and exotic place as far away from Washington, DC as possible. I read a comment that the president should not have cancelled their trip, simply their return flight home out of Afghanistan. I’d like to see them hitch a ride on a C-130 where they had to sit on those web seats and made to pay for their sack lunch like many of us have done.

 

I don’t know what President Trump has up his sleeve, but tomorrow might be a bit interesting especially should it pertain to those invited congressional leaders who keep ditching his invitation to negotiate. And as far as Speaker Pelosi, she has exhibited no leadership in the House and it’s time for those new House Democrats to vote no-confidence and elect a new speaker. After all Pelosi has had 30 years in congress to make positive changes for the country, but chooses to stand on her laurel (where ever that takes her). – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Continued Illegal Migrant Invasions

The Continued Illegal Migrant Invasions

 

People were so concerned about the spread of ISIS (or as Barack Obama liked to use ISIL) across the Middle East, but completely ignore the spread of IIOI from Central America through Mexico as they repeatedly attempt to breach the sovereignty of the United States border?

 

It’s just too much of a coincidence. I wonder what changes are occurring in Mexico under the new administration of the recently elected President. He has pledged to designate land as a sort of demilitarized zone along the US border. I guess we’ll have to see how that works out as still another “spontaneous” caravan of migrants begins the trek from Honduras.

 

How long will the American people allow the misconduct of legislators who would rather bash, block and resist President Trump instead of doing everything under their constitutional authority and responsibility to defend the sovereignty of the United States against these aggressors?

 

What is being done by the CIA, FBI and other agencies to investigate, freeze and prosecute those who organize, finance and enable these “peasants” to trek 2000 miles across dangerous territory at great personal risk and safety to “make a statement”?

 

It is a crime for citizens of the United States to aide and assist in the illegal immigration and unlawful entry into our country. The risk for migrants to aide and assist OTHER migrants to unlawfully enter the USA is to be banned from any future application for lawful entry or migration. Is it really worth it?

 

That being said it is UNCONSCIONABLE for sitting legislators (House or Senate) to parlay or block enforcement of US immigration laws and regulations. It is the constitutional responsibility of Congress to ensure the safety of US citizens by drafting and passing enforceable laws that prevent chaos at our nation’s borders.

 

It is the duty and responsibility for the President of the United States to use EVERY tool available to enforce border security, to include the use of federal troops when foreign operatives attempt repeatedly to invade our country.

 

It is the duty and responsibility of EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic. Many have taken that oath in order to perform military service, or as a publicly elected official or becoming a US citizen. If you cannot or will not pledge your allegiance to our flag, you WILL be forced to give allegiance to another should the time come. Stand for what you believe in or fall for anything. For God, Country and Family! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
