2020 The Year That Was

Trump Acquitted - Forever

2020 The Year That Was

 

History will record the year 2020 as the year that changed American politics with the House Impeachment of President Donald John Trump investigation phase held largely in secret in the basement bunker. There were witnesses and documents and the nod to proceed was given by Speaker Nancy Pelosi without the required full vote of House members and without allowing any defense of the man being accused. In fact there were no impeachable charges, simply third party hearsay and he said, she said. Much of the evidence rested on the mindreading and wordsmithing of Committee Chairmen Adam Schiff and Gerald Nadler. The entire process was flawed and the principle characters in this process accused President Trump of the very things they were attempting to do to him.

 

The veiled Coup began under the guise of threats of impeachment for President-Elect Trump and before his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States. It was then announced publicly as a media headline just 19 days after Trump’s inauguration.

 

We began hearing rumors of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election between the Trump campaign and Russian agents as the reason Hillary Clinton lost the election. Then the infamous dossier came as proof, backed up by FISA court warrants that led to the Mueller Special Investigation and wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent men and culminated in the IG Inspector General’s report that found no wrongdoing on the part of the Trump Campaign and no Russia Connection.

 

During a 2018 speech former Vice President Joe Biden bragged about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired by withholding military assistance funds until it had been done. This speech was broadcast and available online and apparently seen in early 2019 by President Trump or members of his White House staff?

 

During 2019 there was “The July 25th Phone Call” between President Trump and the President of Ukraine where the President asked about alleged corruption by former VP Joe Biden to terminate the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma? Unable to control the President or stop his agenda and afraid his chances of reelection were too great this became an opportunity to discredit and embarrass President Trump.

 

With so much misinformation spread by deep state operatives and the media, and as evidence of corruption or involvement began to unravel concerning Ukraine and current and former US government officials it became necessary to “get the ball rolling” and attempt to influence the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election.

 

It soon festered into the ill-fated Impeachment Inquiry for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress, neither rising to the level of Bribery, Treason or Other High Crimes and Misdemeanors as required by the Constitution.

 

Had real crimes been committed by the President, there would have been a vote by the full body of the House of Representatives on whether or not to begin an investigation to uncover/discover evidence and to interview witnesses. In accordance to the US system of juris prudence fact witnesses would have come forward with firsthand knowledge and/or written proof a crime had been committed. Hearsay and opinions would have been routinely dismissed as non-factual. The investigation phase when properly done would have taken quite a bit of time and skillful prosecutors would have insured that all the “I’s” were dotted and all the “t’s” had been crossed before making a recommendation to the Speaker of the House to advance Articles of Impeachment to the Senate. The vote would have to be non-partisan so as not to give the appearance of partisanship. Legislators with the appearance of a conflict of interest would have been sidelined from the proceedings. Additionally the President would have been allowed a full legal defense during the investigation.

 

From start to finish none of the proper protocol had been followed and the Articles of Impeachment were held by Speaker Pelosi for 33 days after a hasty partisan vote, before being publicly walked over to the Senate with TV cameras rolling.

 

During the trial phase the presentation by House Managers was nothing more than confusing talk and twisting of words based not on fact but simply to suit their own purpose. They alleged the President blatantly refused to cooperate with committee requests for witnesses and/or documents. They alleged that constituted Obstructing Congress by his willful Abuse of Power that went against the Constitution.

 

The President’s Legal Defense Team was quick to point out that proper protocol had not been followed in the House and as such any and all requests were not honored. There were certain officials and former officials of the White House who were covered by Executive Privilege and others who were called but not allowed to bring agency lawyers to the Committees with them and one who challenged in Court the validity of his subpoena, only to have it withdrawn by the Committee before the presiding judge could render a judgement. Thus procedures were not followed, jurisprudence not adhered to and the case presented by the House did not raise to the level of any crimes committed or even Impeachable Offenses.

 

Although the Defense Team was very clear in their presentation during the Senate vote on both articles it was purely a partisan vote (with few exceptions).

 

Article One – Abuse of Power – 52 to acquit, 48 to convict

Article Two – Obstruction of Congress – 53 to acquit, 47 to convict

 

In my opinion members of the Senate exercised their right to vote on the Articles of Impeachment without considering the lack of criminal offenses or the legal defense of the accused, but voted instead based on party lines so as not to upset the balance of established power.

 

2020 will be known as the Year that Congress failed to properly or adequately employ the Impeachment Process in defense of the Constitution.

 

2020 will also be known as the year of the great awakening as voters across the nation realize the scam on America can only be cured at the ballot box. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Who is Really on Trial?

Who is Really on Trial

 

Recently a friend posted on Facebook an article entitled “The Blood” as I read I began to think back over the past 5 years about the division in our nation and it dawned on me that this story is easily transferrable to a person everyone in America is talking about.

 

The Journey

 

One day a wealthy self-made man with a rough past who overcame many obstacles in marriage and business by never accepting “no” as the answer felt the call of God to go into politics, not for personal gain but for love of country.

This is when the problems began.

Unexpectedly and against all odds this man became President of the United States and promised to drain the swamp and make America great again.

One day while on a great journey he stopped by the Wailing Wall and felt the presence of Almighty God that forever changed his life.

Oh he still talks rough and goes after his opponents like a pit-bull and never accepts defeat.

Many are they who doubt his intentions or malign his name and character causing division throughout the nation.

They say it is not possible that God would use such a man.

So great is their hatred of this man it has gone completely out of hand.

They bring up and revel in his past mistakes, yet give no credit when credit is due.

It is not about the man.

It is about what God is doing with a man only HE has chosen.

What is really the issue is whether God is God or not?

Can God really change the heart of man?

If God can change your heart, surely he can change this man. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Read the story – THE BLOOD
(Author unknown)
One night in a church service a young woman felt the tug of God at her heart.
She responded to God’s call and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior.
The young woman had a very rough past, involving alcohol, drugs, and prostitution.
But, the change in her was evident. As time went on she became a faithful member of the church.
She eventually became involved in the ministry, teaching young children.
It was not very long until this faithful young woman had caught the eye and heart of the pastor’s son.
The relationship grew and they began to make wedding plans.
This is when the problems began.
You see, about one half of the church did not think that a woman with a past such as hers was suitable for a pastor’s son.
The church began to argue and fight about the matter.
So they decided to have a meeting.
As the people made their arguments and tensions increased, the meeting was getting completely out of hand.
The young woman became very upset about all the things being brought up about her past.
As she began to cry the pastor’s son stood to speak.
He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be. He began to speak and his statement was this:
“My fiancée’s past is not what is on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability of the blood of Jesus to wash away sin. Today you have put the blood of Jesus on trial. So, does it wash away sin or not?”
The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been slandering the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past and use it as a weapon against our brothers and sisters.
Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
If the blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely then it cannot cleanse us completely.
If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble.
What can wash away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus! End of case!!!!
“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
Psalm 55:23

Congressional Malfeasance in 2020

Congressional Malfeasance in 2020

 

The American people have been subject to the highest of crimes and misdemeanors right in front of their eyes. I’m talking about election interference by collusion and in some cases acts of treason while placing the blame squarely in attempts to cover up or allege crimes on innocent parties. These are impeachable offenses and they are going unanswered.

 

Let us go back to the campaign season 2015 – 2016 and there was a huge blowup concerning the DNC server being hacked in May 2016. The DNC called cybersecurity Crowdstrike to investigate and on June 14 two viruses (Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear) were discovered on the DNC server. The FBI was not allowed access to the DNC server during their investigation of election interference. Why not? On July 5, 2016 we were told the DNC server was hacked by Russia. The person or entity called Guccifer 2.0 took responsibility for both intrusions. Immediately it was alleged that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia – Watergate all over again.

 

Information released after the fact shows that the DNC server was located in the Ukraine. How did that happen? Who made that decision? If I remember correctly there were 2 brothers working as Information Technicians for the DNC while employed part time by a number of Democratic legislators with full access to the congressional computer system. Once they were found out, they were allowed to leave the country and fled overseas, possibly back to Ukraine. During the past 3 years of the Trump presidency we have heard nothing substantial about them. We have heard plenty about the so called Trump-Russia Collusion hoax and more recently during the Trump Impeachment Trial we’ve been subject to the Trump-Ukraine so called drug scheme that was really a hunt for Hunter and Joe Biden involvement in Ukrainian money laundering and bribery scheme. This is an impeachable offense but for former VP Joe Biden who did not see the clear conflict of interest.

 

I know that we have some really smart members of congress on both sides of the isle with many of them former prosecutors, legal professionals and even judges. So why are we having such lackluster performances being displayed in the public forum when it comes to cases of national security or election interference?

 

Case in point is the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump has been simply a case of pin non-crimes on the President that frames them in hearsay and innuendoes while feeding to the mind reading hysteria displayed by the House Managers who by all accounts have been very successful prosecutors prior to becoming legislators. It appears that House Democrats have been bullied to the point that dissenting or pulling away from party leaders is political suicide. What is needed is voter turnout and action to return sensible legislators to Congress. It’s time to stop being Democrats and Republicans and begin acting like American citizens! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

High Crimes and Misdemeanors – The Case for Impeachment

Trump AcquittedTrump Impeachment Trial

1-16-2020

 

High Crimes and Misdemeanors – The Case for Impeachment

(Updated periodically throughout the Trial)

 

We are living in historic times. Since the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States we have been continually bombarded with the threats of “Impeachment” from Congressional Democrats. The search for impeachable offenses began almost before close of business inauguration day 2017.

 

We have heard from seasoned life-time professional democratic members of both the House and the Senate calling for impeaching the President. He’s been called an imposter, a fake president, even a stooge of Russian President Putin.

 

We heard cries of “Trump’s getting us into a war with North Korea” because the talks in the private meeting with Kim Jong Un were held in private and as of today – no war?

 

We heard “Trump’s making a fool out of the US” when going along with the program didn’t happen during international meetings of world leaders.

 

We also heard more impeachment cries from freshman members of Congress who went so far as to make their cries derogatory in nature on live television.

 

There were a number of sitting members of Congress “challenging” each other in a vain attempt to go head-to-head with President Trump during the upcoming 2020 election, just as I thought – much ado about nothing. They wanted to have their names up in lights as those who went against Trump, only one thing – they all dropped out except for a very select and hopeful few.

 

So here we are in January 2020 and finally after all the name calling and hype the House decides to Impeach the President because they can (really under the Constitution they are the only ones who can), but their long list of offenses boiled down to “Abuse of Power” and “Obstructing Congress” –  Come on now? House and Senate Democrats (and Republicans) have been abusing their congressional powers and obstructing the President since the inauguration.

 

At first it was imminently dangerous for the nation to wait until after the 2020 election. So after an “investigation for show” and a huge announcement that “Trump has been impeached and that is forever” – Speaker Pelosi, it took 4 weeks to transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate. The reason it took so long was the House attempting to pressure Senate Majority Leader McConnell into agreeing to Pelosi’s terms for the trial (not Constitutional). This brought out cries for a fair and balanced trial in the Senate, or it’s just a Republican cover-up (more posturing).

 

Next came the signing of the articles using special “Nancy Pelosi” pens, which she handed out to her Democratic House colleagues and the ceremonial “transmitting” of the articles by a televised procession of House “managers” so everyone could see.

 

At the Senate the first order of business was the swearing in of the Chief Justice and the ceremonial signing of the pledge to be fair and impartial by all members, next the trial of the President.

 

1-25-2020

 

After 1 full week of Democratic posturing, appealing and finally insulting bullying techniques from the House “Managers” who tried to convince the Senate and the public that “All Thoughts Matter”, especially perceived thoughts by Congressional House mind readers.

 

I finally had an opportunity to sit down and watch what turned out to be the final 30 minutes of Saturday’s Presidential defense team literally tearing apart the biased House’s unethical impeachment process. Citing past presidential impeachment precedence, Supreme Court cases referencing due process and procedure it took a total of 2 hours to shred the grossly mishandled and bungled sham impeachment.

 

I have to admit I began by recording the opening remarks by House “Manager” Schiff but had to turn it off after it became obvious that he was simply posturing as is his habit before the mainstream media for the past 3 years.

 

I attempted tuning in at the beginning of each day of the trial and could only stomach a few minutes before I began thinking to myself “The View” would be better than this. Yuk! The saying there is no honor among thieves became apparent throughout this procedure.

 

Today even though I got in on the tail end of today’s proceedings it was in my opinion the best 30 minutes of the day. The Senate recessed until Monday and with somewhere around 23 hours remaining in the Presidential defense it will definitely require recording.

 

I read that after the session was adjourned Chairman Schiff went straight to Fox to complain about the President’s defense team. Somebody ought to put a lollipop in that man’s mouth and send him home to momma Nancy or something.

 

I trust that American’s are calling in sick, forgoing their traditional lunch pastimes and stay glued to the television = CSPAN2 for the unedited methodical rundown of what the House should have done as they claim President Trump has shredded the Constitution, when in fact they have all but ground it underfoot. Time to take a break and wait until the Senate convenes.

 

1-26-2020

 

I turned on the TV this morning to watch Meet the Press and low and behold who did my eyes see – Rep. Adam Schiff fixing to tell his side of the truth to anyone who hasn’t already heard it in Congress already over the past 3 years.  I don’t know about you but that sounds more and more like the boy who cried wolf. Why am I surprised at the “solemnness” of this presidential impeachment and the way the House Dems cling to television cameras to tell why everyone else is wrong and they’re the only ones who are right? (That’s a rhetorical question in case you don’t know). Maybe that’s why in normal court cases the judge sequesters the jury? (Another one).

 

1-28-2020

 

I depend upon CSPAN2 to provide the unvarnished live feed on the happenings of Congress and the President. Yesterday prior to the actual trial I watched Senate Majority Leader Schumer and other Democratic Senators gather in front of the media to put their spin on the trial. To be fair I muted the sound and did not turn on captioning as I wanted nothing to distract or influence the continuation of the trial. I got a late start on watching the trial so I went to the beginning of today’s proceedings and listened to the President’s legal team continue his defense. What I heard and saw made it very clear that according to the Constitution House Speaker Pelosi began the Impeachment of President Trump flawed from the start.

 

The Constitution gives the sole power of Impeachment to the House of Representatives, not to a person or party in power at the time. In fact the first order of business should have been a roll call of “all hands on deck” and a full vote for Impeachment with 435 members of the house voting Yea or Nay. Procedurally that did not happen. What did happen began 19 minutes after President Trump was inaugurated and continued throughout the President’s current term of office with Speaker Pelosi moving forward with Impeachment on her own initiative. The is a clear abuse of power and a violation by Speaker Pelosi and the House.

 

What also became evident was the Constitution clearly states in Article II, Section 4 – The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. The charges levied against President Trump were for Abuse of Power and Obstructing Congress which in themselves are vague and not even crimes, let alone high crimes. The Impeachment investigation hoax has been at best shoddy and poorly done. Well beneath the ethical standards of the House of Representatives.

 

Based upon the material presented by the President’s legal team members and former members of Congress HAVE violated Article II, Section 4 and there are in fact Impeachable Offences that the House have overlooked that constitutes criminal action on behalf of members of the House as well. What was also shown was the former Vice President Joe Biden actually engaged in and admitted to threatening to withhold US Aid funding to Ukrainian unless they get rid of a certain prosecutor investigating a Ukrainian company of which his son was a board member. That is quid pro quo with an actual crime committed by a high ranking US official (Vice President Biden).

 

If you were watching the proceedings on main stream media, the testimony by legal team member Pam Bondi was not allowed to air in order to protect Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden. This is a clear case of “the Swamp” covering for its own and the deep state clearly moving to suppress critical evidence from American voters.  Today is sure to be another exciting day of testimony as the Presidential defense team continues shredding the partisan efforts to remove a President without an impeachable crime being committed.

 

The President’s defense team finished laying out the case for dismissing the articles of impeachment as they do not meet the Constitutional standard for High Crimes and Misdemeanors or grounds for removal from office. White House Counsel Jay Sekulow issued a stern warning to Senators – Warning! Warning! Warning! The Presidential Defense Team rested more than 10 hours ahead of schedule.

 

Senatorial Impeachment Rules govern the questioning phase and length of time for each question and must be written down and submitted to Chief Justice Roberts. Questions will be taken from both sides of the isle and is scheduled to last 2 8 hour days.

 

1-30-2020

Yesterday was day 1 of a 2 day answer session of the Impeachment Trial phase. It was interesting to note that House Democratic leaders threatened that should the Senate fail to impeach the President, they would file Articles of Impeachment for “Obstruction of Congress” due to the President’s legal defense team. I take it as more than a veiled threat that threatens the separation of the Chambers of Congress.

There were many questions asked of both sides. The answers were revealing. In fact the House Managers insisted there can be no trial without witnesses, forgetting the fact that during the House investigation phase it was their sole responsibility to do just that – call witnesses. At one point in the questioning the President’s Legal Team said that IF the Senate chose to allow witnesses one of the first would be House Manager Adam Schiff, Hunter Biden and the yet unnamed whistleblower. When questioned further about the number of witnesses called during the House investigation that proved their case conclusively, the defense said then we don’t need to call any witnesses. What is obvious after one day of questioning the House case has not been substantiated by fact or proven at all.

 

1-31-2020

 

Yesterday I was only able to sit and watch a little more than 2 hours of the question and answer session. What struck me was the House Managers continue to see Secretary Bolton as a necessity when answering almost every question. So why did they not see him as such over the past several months of investigation? I saw a video clip of Bolton saying the President’s 2 phone conversations were pleasant. (Didn’t they have access to this same tape?)

 

The narrative keeps shifting and now they are saying it’s a presidential scheme to cheat in the 2020 election, when in fact the impeachment is just that. Manager Schiff said its right here in plain sight, and he was. And when representing the House Managers in answering questions why did he feel the need to go and provide his answers to questions asked solely to the President’s defense team?

 

I agree with a point re-emphasized by the President’s legal team – the “Impeachment” has been invalid from the beginning. When asking for documents using shortcuts or improperly, those requests were not honored. When told the grounds of not honoring the requests, the House failed to take the necessary corrective action.

 

The Democratic talking points have shifted entirely over the course of the trial and now that Secretary Bolton’s manuscript on a book not even released yet, coupled with a newspaper article citing from the not yet released book has been read into the trial as “evidence” of presidential wrongdoing I find it hard to take anything said by the House Managers seriously.

 

I think that should the Senate vote to call witnesses it should be very controlled alternating 5 per side and limit questioning/cross-examination to 10 minutes each side. It would be interesting to see who would be called and who would not show up?

 

Well back to monitoring the festivities of the day where hearsay “evidence” is called “proof” and legislators say nobody is above the law, while they perch themselves above the Constitution (which is the law).

 

The Senate voted against calling witnesses and documents for a very good reason – during the trial phase of a presidential impeachment it’s not their place to become investigators for the House. To recap on what the President’s legal team has said repeatedly during the trial – if Manager Schiff was in a criminal trial and went into court asking the judge to call witnesses or for documents he had not sought prior to the hearing there would have been a mistrial declared and the case would be over.

 

It is the job of the Senate to try the evidence presented by the House and make a determination of guilt or innocence under the law. There will be a conclusion rendered by Thursday by the Senate and announced by the Chief Justice and this will be over.

 

It has been a great miscarriage of justice in that for 3 years the House has threatened President Trump with impeachment. Let that sink in. In that time the House did not vote for impeachment, nor did they begin “investigating” to discover evidence or interview witnesses until a little over 2 months prior to the announcement of Articles of Impeachment. During those 2 months there was no representation or defense allowed by the President or his legal team. The hearings were closed, secreted away in the basement bunker and routinely leaked to the media. No due process or fairness for the President or the American justice system.

 

Evidence presented to the Senate during the trial phase was based on hearsay not fact. Video clips and slides of “testimony” were presented but nothing was based upon fact, simply twisted and even made up words by House Managers. More importantly the Articles of Impeachment were not impeachable offenses in their title, nor their definition and were therefore a sham, debunked easily by the President’s defense team.

 

The reaction and response of the House, House Managers and Senate Democrats thus far have indicated that they consider anything done by the Senate to be a cover up and not to be accepted, but will lead to more impeachment charges in a hurried attempt at election interference for the upcoming 2020 Presidential election.

 

The fact that Senate Democrats competing with President Trump for the office of President do not see the conflict of interest they present by voting against their political opponent (an assertion they levy against President Trump).

2-3-2020

 

Closing Arguments

 

Today the Senate convened for closing arguments by House Managers and the President’s legal team. To be fair I do not lend credibility anything said by the House Managers as their case as layed out by the summary from the President’s legal team shows the Articles of Impeachment failed on both its face and definition (counts 1 and 2). The Senate adjourned until tomorrow (2-4-2020) when there will be a roll call vote on each Article of Impeachment.

 

My concerns are that during the investigation phase much has surfaced indicating at the very least conflicts of interest concerning members of both the House and Senate in relation to some personal or family involvement with Ukraine for the past several years or the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election where various members of the Senate are running for the Democratic nomination in a bid to challenge President Trump in November.

 

Names that have come up in relation to Ukraine are Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, Biden, Romney, Kerry. Names of Democratic and former 2020 candidates serving in Congress are Warren, Harris, Booker, and Sanders. Each of those named above should recuse themselves of any involvement in the Impeachment or the pending Senatorial vote on the Articles of Impeachment for political bias against President Trump. I doubt that any of those named will do the honorable thing, as they are heavily involved in both the Deep State and the Swamp.

2-5-2020

 

The Conclusion – Not Guilty!

 

This is especially gratifying and alarming to see 100 Senators vote to acquit President Donald John Trump of both Articles of Impeachment.

 

Article 1 rendered a 48 – 52 vote = Not Guilty

 

Article 2 rendered a 47 – 53 vote = Not Guilty

 

While the vote was done primarily along party lines it is alarming that Senators did not vote on the Constitutionality of these articles.

 

The garbled case presented by House Managers did not allege or prove an actual crime, simply policy disagreements and outright hatred of the President.

 

The defense clearly showed that the Impeachment process followed in the House was improper and unconstitutional in the manner it was conducted, in secret with frequent leaking to the press and without the constitutional safeguards established by jurisprudence.  Ignore the rule of law and the response should have been no surprise.

 

It now falls on the American voters to determine in the upcoming presidential election not only the President, but whether members of congress who acted in bad faith should remain in office as well?

 

There will be consequences for those who conducted illegal threats by intimidation of House members, threatening members of the Senate and even the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court sitting on the Court of Impeachment, as well as threats of disbarment against the President’s legal team for insuring a proper defense. I trust the DOJ will seek out those wrongdoers and begin appropriate legal action.

 

Thus far the Presidential Impeachment has been an over-reach of political power, an exercise in futility, a test of strength and patience by Americans.

Democracy versus Democratic

1-14-2020

Democracy versus Democratic

 

Is it just me or does anyone else question democracy and in particular the Democratic Party? To the die-hard Democrat symbolism is everything. Don’t believe me? Look at the hammer and sickle being revived from the Soviet Union or the raised fist of European fascists or the Nazi symbol being reinvented in modern day America. Their rhetoric is aimed at central control by a government “of the people” without dissention or input from those to be governed. Also it must be noted that the inability of self-defense is a necessity in a democratically governed state.

 

We’ve all grown up knowing that people in China are governed by a Communist government keeping a tight rule on the everyday life of its citizens. What is broadcast on television and radio; how many children are allowed and even which gender is expendable or unacceptable; the internet is tightly controlled and dissention is met with force leading to death or imprisonment. The people of Taiwan have maintained independence from China, often at great expense and we see flare-ups happening as the Chinese government attempts to reign them in.

 

This scenario is replicated in places like the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) who insured the Communist government was instituted by hand picking the “Dear Leader” at the end of the hostilities of the Korean War. Venezuela is another example where the people suffer at the expense of government leadership and we’ve recently seen how that is playing out. Cuba has been that way since the days of President Eisenhower (after WWII) through today.

 

I wondered about how many types of democracies are there and on Google I find information this:

 

“The main forms of democracy are: Direct democracy, Representative democracy, Presidential democracy, Parliamentary democracy, Authoritarian democracy, Participatory democracy, Islamic democracy and social democracy.” https://www.scienceabc.com/social-science/different-types-democracy-direct-representative-presidential-parliamentary.html

 

Here is this definition of democracy found on Google:

 

The term “democracy” first appeared in ancient Greek political and philosophical thought in the city-state of Athens during classical antiquity. The word comes from demos, “common people” and kratos, “strength”. Led by Cleisthenes, Athenians established what is generally held as the first democracy in 508–507 BC. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy

 

Democracy

Noun: democracy

A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives

“Capitalism and democracy are ascendant in the third world”

 

 

Similar:

Representative government

Elective government

Constitutional government

Popular government

Self-government

Government by the people

Autonomy

Republic

Commonwealth

 

Opposite:

Tyranny

Dictatorship

A state governed by a democracy?

 

Plural noun: democracies

“A multiparty democracy”

Control of an organization or group by the majority of its members

“The intended extension of industrial democracy”

 

Here’s a definition of Democratic

 

dem·o·crat·ic

/ˌdeməˈkradik/

 

Adjective: democratic;

Adjective: Democratic

Relating to or supporting democracy or its principles.

“Democratic reforms”

 

For all practical appearances the root word for democracy and democratic is demon and maybe that explains it all in a nutshell. It seems that there is no difference between democracy, democratic, mob rule or Muslim extremism. They all claim there is no peace without them, or they are the only way to peace. The road to peace in the Middle East and across the globe is paved with the blood of those who have gotten in the way of these waves called democracy, religion or Islamic fundamentalism. Without God there can be no peace.

 

Jesus said, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.” – Matthew 24:6

 

I don’t understand what’s with the word “Democracy” or “Democratic”? How can anybody think they are a good thing? Look at what has happened in American politics. What have recent democratic policies or ideas done for the average American citizen? Has progressive liberal-democraticism enhanced your life one iota? I think not.

 

Have the public display of insane antics by liberal progressive congressional democrats over the past 3 years given one shred of hope to democratic voters or driven them by the droves into the open arms of conservative republicans? Are your personal finances going further? Is your community safer? Do you see the US economy booming?  Is there hope at the end of your tunnel, or is that just another train approaching? – I am the Real Truckmaster!

When You Take “The Oath”

When You Take “The Oath”

 

I like what someone once said about suiting up or shutting up because unless you’ve committed yourself to a job, organization or someone else you really don’t know how important and binding “The Oath” is whether it’s running for the political office of dog catcher (assuming there is still such an office), or strapping on the uniform of a first responder or the military requires a conscious decision on the part of the individual and the usually comes after taking the oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic. The part about obeying the orders of the President of the United States and those appointed over you is not debatable.

 

If you become a public servant your loyalty is to the office and in the best interests of the people (city, county, state or nation) you represent and not to any political party or foreign power. Dishonesty in office should never be tolerated. Public humiliation of another is just not acceptable.

 

Just as a doctor or paramedic take the Hippocratic oath to save lives; a firefighter pledges to save lives and property; a law enforcement is to protect and serve; the armed forces pledges to protect and defend the Constitution, while we are each responsible to Almighty God to serve him with our whole heart, mind, body and spirit and to worship him and him alone.

 

When you suit up and put on the work uniform of your chosen profession, whether it is flipping burgers at the local burger joint or climbing into the space shuttle you are the defacto representation of that organization and your conduct matters. Your words and actions say more about you and the company name on your uniform than anything else. The first impression (good or bad) is a lasting one and is impossible to change. It’s been said a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and it only takes one tiny nail to flatten a tire.

 

When you take “The Oath”, remember you have pledged your life and one day you may be required to give that last full measure for freedom. There is no shame in being loyal or patriotic just know which country you stand for but stand for what is right so you don’t fall for just anything.

 

Your word is your bond. If you are unable or unwilling to fulfill the obligations of “The Oath” I suggest that you resign or terminate your obligation and choose a different line of work. If you are unhappy living in the United States of America, don’t hold up a sign “protesting” or displaying your unhappiness – move to another country where you are free to be yourself and maybe live a better life. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

My take on the Elimination of an Iranian Terrorist Leader

My Take on the Elimination of an Iranian Terrorist Leader

 

The attack on the US Embassy in Baghdad was the latest of a quarter century of Iranian sponsored terrorist activity directed by General Qasem Soleimani so it would be televised and online for all to see. It was only fitting that within a few days the general would also be on television so the world could see his untimely demise outside the airport in Baghdad. It was a blast heard round the world and terrorists took notice. In the US many others took notice as well. Iranian and Syrian exiles were relieved and ecstatic over the news.

 

When the White House press release announced it was done by the order of President Trump it didn’t take long before Hollywood entertainers were quick to distance themselves even further from the President (nothing new here), with public cries out for Iran not to attack the US over this incident.

 

House Democrats began denouncing President Trump saying he was pushing the US into a war with Iran and alienating our “allies” in the region. Some even began parroting “Trump – war crimes violation” and even calling for a national day of mourning in the United States for the general. How ludicrous!

 

What many Americans fail to see is the media pushing their agenda rather than uniting behind the President and standing firm as a nation fighting a long-standing Global War on Terrorism?

 

I do not question the legality of this action taken by the Commander In Chief against a terrorist leader actively engaged in planning future attacks on US military personnel or American assets around the world. I do not celebrate or mourn Soleimani’s death, but he died as he lived – a terrorist.

 

I do question the patriotism and loyalty of Americans who choose to side with the enemy instead of backing up the President of the United States. Shame on you! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
