Kissing the Dragon

Kissing the Dragon


When I was younger I used to have these dreams of being chased by zombies who were reaching out to grab me. Just before they could I’d stop running and turn around and say, “I’m a zombie too!” Then we’d head off to get somebody else. What I see going on today is kind of like that with cable shows, movies and video games and everybody thinks they’re a living dead – a zombie.


What we’re witnessing over the past 4 or 5 days is an example of tough guys and bad women who think they have to tear down the historical and capitalistic dinosaurs to make way for “new growth”. What a farce! They are the product a generation where the lessons of history were never learned.


Now they have been indoctrinated into a futuristic sheeple society where fear, intimidation and violence are the tools to a better life. These were good kids who were sent away to the plantation of modern education with no goals or aspirations where the educators were among yesterday’s malcontents and failures of a society where they didn’t fit in.


Along comes a magical mystic ultra-secretive anti-society where they are taught to pick out the weak and the elderly of society, those unable to fight back, the innocent and unsuspecting and hone in their new-found skills.


If you watch Animal Planet or National Geographic channels on cable – the lions hunt the wildebeest searching out the weaklings and strays that haven’t learned or can’t keep up as the herd wildly runs away. There is always one or two who are just not fast enough or smart enough.


It’s the same principle with humans. The bully looks for the nerd or the new kid who doesn’t quite fit in and does the unthinkable – attack without mercy. The natural tendency is to look away, then walk away as if it never even happened. Take that same bully and put him in a group that is fearful of him and the world is his. Take that group and cover their faces with head or face coverings and turn them loose on the street in a neighborhood and you have a roving gang of thugs. Soon they think they are kings of their own turf. They have no jobs, no purpose and soon no sense of responsibility. Enter groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They have banners, signs and slogans. They have over time developed a reputation that instills fear where ever they are seen. It’s not long before they incorporate the bullies and their groups building up their masses. Still they lack a purpose or direction. Along come the community organizers and trainers who take them under their wings and give them training and direction, equipping them for future action. When the political climate is right the financiers arrange for transportation, food, shelter and most importantly a decent sum of money to commit to action participation. In every organization there must be political and law enforcement allies to insure that participants are not held accountable for their actions. There must be a means of communicating to the participants and on public forums like news, television and social media. Without media there is no desired fear level to make people run and hide and afraid of fighting back. At every level of this equation there are those who are expendable and easy to replace. They are called useful idiots. They are not the brains, only the muscle for this occasion.


It’s been said that you don’t have to be smart to be a criminal. However criminals almost always think they are smarter then you or me. They are definitely smarter than cops right? They venture into territory where they THINK they are the masters. It’s like being a Call of Duty sniper. You are so bad that every pat on the back or curse to your face takes you to a higher skill level and pretty soon you think you are invincible.


If you’ve seen the posts on social media where rioting in the streets in cities across the nation appear to be getting worse each day. If you look closely you will see sporadic pockets of resistance where shop keepers and armed citizens stand guard only to see rioters pass on by without stopping. They know or have been told to avoid any pockets of resistance so as not to slow the momentum of the movement.


When you follow the news reports you are told that President Trump is responsible for the violence, the racism and the cops on black American killings like that of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In one voice the media parrots the same leftist talking points over and over and over again.


As everyone is urging him to bring active duty units in to stop the violence President Trump has urged state governors to take control and activate their National Guard troops to augment local and state law enforcement. Only a handful of governors have done that thus far and their response has been way too slow and seemingly a half-hearted effort.


Taking what began as peaceful protesting police violence against black Americans a 1st Amendment right under the Constitution, domestic terrorist groups have exploited entire communities and redirected the anger and concern for justice for George Floyd into a growing nationwide display of lawlessness, rioting and looting with public and private property damage and loss of many more innocent lives.


This is what I call Kissing the Dragon in an attempt not to be the recipient of a flaming attack. I got news for you it doesn’t work like that. There are several things that are about to happen, if not already in progress.


First the Department of Justice has dispatched enforcement task forces to identify, apprehend and arrest rioting organizers and ringleaders. There are many video cameras and eyewitness accounts where every participant will be unmasked and prosecuted. Supporters and enablers will also be identified and held accountable.


Second state and federal military units have been on the scene or alerted for specific hotspots to quell the civil unrest and restore order, implemented by armed militias and patriotic Americans who are both trained and willing to step in to assist. We will not let this foolishness continue. We are neighbors and family all seeking justice for the George Floyds of our nation. We will begin afresh to clean up the messes, rebuild homes, businesses and communities. We will come together as one nation under God.


This is an election year and we have seen how democratically elected officials have either helped or hindered during these violent days. Democrat, Republican or Independent – you who left us out in the cold and sided with these domestic terrorists for political gain will not be getting our vote come November. – I am the Real Truckmaster!



The Uniting of America




The Uniting of America


Across the nation we are witnessing rioting, looting and deliberate murders in the name of “protest” and from the very start it appeared to be organized. The spark in Minneapolis could very well have been a setup using an unsuspecting George Floyd as bait.


In a press release, cops described the fatal encounter as a ‘medical incident.’


On Monday evening, shortly after 8:00 pm, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department responded to the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South on a report of a forgery in progress. Officers were advised that the suspect was sitting on top of a blue car and appeared to be under the influence.

Two officers arrived and located the suspect, a male believed to be in his 40s, in his car. He was ordered to step from his car. After he got out, he physically resisted officers. Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress. Officers called for an ambulance.


It is during this period that cellphone video showed bystanders pleaded on deaf ears for officers to get the handcuffed man off the ground. They pleaded with the officer to get his knee off the man’s neck as George Floyd was on the ground handcuffed saying he couldn’t breathe and as officer Derek Chauvin kneeled with his knee on Floyd’s neck. Floyd went limp before paramedics arrived and it is clear there was no attempt to render medical assistance by either of the two officers. Paramedics appeared to check for a pulse and moved calmly to load Floyd seemingly lifeless body, still handcuffed hands behind his back, onto a gurney and into the ambulance.


He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance where he died a short time later.

At no time were weapons of any type used by anyone involved in this incident.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has been called in to investigate this incident at the request of the Minneapolis Police Department.

No officers were injured in the incident.

Body worn cameras were on and activated during this incident.


What is clear is that a crime had been committed resulting in the death of George Floyd and could very easily have been prevented had officers responded differently. Derek Chauvin was subsequently fired from the MPD and has been charged with 3rd degree Manslaughter yet we may never know the full circumstances until body camera video is examined and released publicly or to a jury at trial.


The collateral damage resulting in this gross miscarriage of justice set off a powder keg of organized protests, rioting and looting and more innocent deaths across the country from the West coast to the East coast and even to the White House in Washington, DC.


There are multiple displays of unity as Americans have taken up arms to protect the life and property of others in the face of unruly mobs. Sadly lone Americans defending their property have suffered catastrophic injury and even death. Americans have come together as one in the face of adversity many times over the past 240 years and today is no different.

It is ironic that as we watch the historic launch of two NASA astronauts into space on a joint SpaceX – NASA project, we also see the wanton destruction of mob violence attempting to shred the fabric of our nation and we have only ourselves to blame. Many of our public schools and those of higher learning have been turned into brainwashing indoctrination centers where family values are replaced with misplaced loyalties where violence is the norm. Have we not learned that violence is never the answer; violence leads more violence and ultimately ends in death.


Those responsible for orchestrating this wave of violence must be held responsible. Follow the money. Paid rabble-rousers who cross state lines for the purpose of rioting and looting are doing so seemingly with impunity. That makes this unrest political in nature and we must look at local, state and national politicians and political figures and hold them responsible. Law enforcement officers on every level are sworn to serve and protect the public. Failure on their part to perform those duties must result in termination and in some cases may warrant prosecution.


In recent months COVID-19 has sought to keep us apart, isolated and fearful but we are a nation of patriots. We come from many racial and ethnic backgrounds becoming one people under one God. We are American’s who love God, our families and our country. Our forefathers fought to create this great nation. We stand with our brothers and sisters continuing the fight to preserve it. Some say the storm is coming. America will be fundamentally changed. We will not let that happen.

WE ARE THE STORM! – I am the Real Truckmaster!



Another Wave of Violence

minnesota violence 2020



Another Wave of Violence


How is it that a foreign entity is able to operate in the United States with impunity using social media, local news outlets and seemingly sanctioned by our own government? How can this be?


I’m speaking of the riot-for-hire tactics of George Soros’ Open Society organization and those under its umbrella. When someone is killed it is and should be an affront to mankind. So how is it that someone can stand aside and film an injustice being committed without stepping in to prevent a tragedy before it happens? I wasn’t in Minnesota but the cameraperson was. Instead of watching and filming could stepping up have changed the outcome?


Secondly where did the “protestors” – give me a break. Call it like it is they are not protestors. Antifa thugs are criminals and anyone who gets caught up in the moment become criminals too. There are plenty of cell-phone and news media videos showing scores of people destroying property and looting as this wave of violence spreads across neighborhoods.


It’s so convenient and obvious that while average Americans are forced to stay home and shelter in place the criminal element roams freely doing their dastardly deeds. What do you hear from the governor, “Oh please stop!” Police precincts are burned to the ground and the National Guard and state troopers are activated to restore law and order. And if that’s not bad enough the scene is repeated in Los Angeles and other cities across the nation. While the President voices his concerns on Twitter, his voice is silenced for glamorizing violence? Even our congress is silent on this wave of violence, unless it is to pass blame to President Trump. It’s his fault they say that a cop killed an African-American man. It may be time to declare Martial Law in Minnesota and elsewhere to place these lawbreakers behind bars and to restore order.


The FBI should come down on organizations like Black Lives Matter and Antifa with an iron fist. There needs to be a blue wave that will take criminal organizations down for racketeering (RICO) and organizing mass lawlessness.


We should have already seen from the Minnesota governor and heard from the Minnesota Attorney General’s office condemnation of these criminal acts and watch as they are brought under control. It shouldn’t be that difficult as every law abiding citizen is still restricted to their homes.


This is not the first time hate crimes are used by nefarious persons to promote hate and racial division. Nor I might add is it going to be the last. We’ve seen this behavior after every election since 2016. We’ve seen mayors and governors turned blind eyes as lawlessness continues and local law enforcement have often been placed on the sidelines and told to just let it play out.


I say turn loose every department, every agency of the United States Department of Justice with specific instructions to stop the violence. Why can’t the same agency that raided the home of an old man and woman at night because they were friendly to President Trump use the same tactics for apprehending the ring leaders, organizers and financiers of these riots?  The memory of George Floyd deserves not only satisfaction but justice as Derek Chauvin (the officer) has been taken into custody. It’s time to let the wheels of justice work. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


What is Your Focus?




What is Your Focus?


As I began reading an email response I had to stop myself. The writer said he’d probably never fit in with our generation and that made me stop and write this, before going any further. I am going to add some input or clarity (if that is possible).


I recently posted that looking through foggy glasses all you see is fog?


That is true as your focus is bases on your environment, those you allow around you, your family, friends and coworkers.


Those who know me may not know how or why Thailand is part of my DNA, in my conversations and Thailand groups not only did I spend a brief 2 ½ years in Thailand 68 – 70, but I brought Thailand home with me after I married a Thai and brought her to the states. I’ve been back many times over the years and always I went to revisit the place of my youth – Camp Khon Kaen, from the mid-1990’s until the mid-2000’s I watched as changes occurred in Thailand. For me the biggest changes became noticeable when I made a final trip out to the old camp and found our footprint had been erased completely. I stopped going out there because a part of me was no longer and my focus changed.


What I want you to see is that maybe you need to change your focus, clean off your foggy glasses and see the world through a new and different light.


The writer began to say that DJT needs to show compassion and not focus on getting re-elected. Clearly someone hasn’t seen where Trumps focus is or has been. I’ve watched as he shows compassion for Americans of many walks of life, different ethnic groups and political parties. Most of that doesn’t appear in the main stream media. What they have done is focusing on a disinformation campaign like we have never seen before in a continual attempt to get Trump out of office or keep him from getting reelected. If you watch those “news” feeds closely you will see that once one person “brands” something negative about Trump, it is parroted on every station and every talk show over and over again.


Let me interject something here. Your comments matter to me. In fact rather than taking the time to write you a personal response, I write my Real Truckmaster Series blogs.  Sometimes I’m serious, other times I’m making fun of what liberals say and do (to make a point). Your comments are largely responsible for many of my RTM blogs. Thank you (seriously)!


Trump is like an octopus fighting on many fronts and has been since 2015 when he announced he was running for President. He took many of the political talking points and turned them into campaign promises. After the inauguration he gathered together politicians from both sides of the isle (both wings of the same chicken) and told him what he’d like them to do bi-partisanly to make America come together. They listened, but did they do it – no. The left began their resistance campaign, aided by RINOs and butt-hurt republicans. Trump has a way of doing that to people who take his jabbing personally. Maybe it’s just his way of counter-punching?


But take the wall. It’s been talked about since Reagan, if not before. Every president has said we need to do something about securing the border. Some did nothing. Others put up a 3 or 4 strand wire fence or some type of flimsy barrier. They lobbied congress, had funds appropriated to do the job but didn’t. What happened to that money? But when Trump said it – BAM! They resisted and we began seeing caravans, protests and even American citizens going into Mexico coaching migrants to claim amnesty. (That’s illegal). Trump has been getting things done in spite of the resistance from the left. To date there are 200 miles of wall already up and it is making a difference in the areas where it has been built.


You talk about compassion, Trump has compassion for those making the trip north to our border and he has put pressure on leaders of Mexico and other Central American nations to secure their borders and prevent these caravans from reaching the US. Offering migrants amnesty in their countries. It has worked, but we still get overwhelmed by those not wanting or able to go through the process legally. So is it more compassionate to do as Obama did, build cages? Or discourage them from beginning the road trip north?


Trump is waging a single-handed war against foreign countries and world based organizations who’ve systematically taken advantage of the US in trade, oil and technology to level the playing field. I truly believe that congress isn’t on board because they have no idea how to do the things Trump has done. They don’t have the vision or the focus. Otherwise they would gather together and begin working together to make America better. Oh they say they are, but action speaks louder than words.


Before I close let me talk about this virus and other things. It began in China in early December 2019. Trump was advised about it when there were only 45 cases reported in China. Congress was bent on impeaching him, yet his focus was on the virus. He and his advisors worked closely to begin monitoring travelers coming in from China, way before he stopped flights from coming in. Upon finding out there were insufficient supplies of PPE, Trump began working with private industry to convert assembly lines into PPE production. Who else had ever done something like that since Roosevelt during WWII? So while the Democratic leftists in Congress try to destroy Trump with some trumped up charges, his focus is on dealing with the virus.


As the virus became a national focus Trump could have used executive orders to try and force states to do what he and his advisors said was the proper thing to do, but he put it on the governors. Their states their decision, but with federal guidance and as we know and understand more about the virus the push to social distance, stay at home, wear masks, get tested and so on – all that has been changing, morphing as we go along. Again Trump could “order” governors to open up, but again it’s their states, their decisions. That way the left can’t blame him for shutting down or opening up states because it’s their states, their decisions.


Through all this Trump has taken no salary (donated each quarter back to government agencies for specific causes). He has taken a tremendous personal financial hit as president. The media has been the action arm of the political left, spreading misinformation and attacking anyone associated with or ever having known Trump.


The Obama administration weaponized various agencies during the 8 years of Obama. They have been running cover as the Deep State and done so with impunity until now. Every time Trump fires an Obama era political appointee, the left goes off. Trump appoints someone – they drag their feet approving a replacement. Trump has thrown many a curve ball and they didn’t see it coming. But when Trump appoints a temporary replacement the left tries to deflect him away from his purpose by intimidation and threats, even issuing letters to stop doing what Trump has him doing.


Just a few days ago while in front of a media camera Pelosi said “One things for sure, Trump will not be president in 2021, one way or another.” So what does that tell you? The Democrats are focusing once again on Impeachment 2.0 in an attempt to prevent him from making it to November.


It is important for Trump to be re-elected in order to clean out the Obama administration’s corruption in government and begin bringing guilty people to justice. American voters need to do the same in November – clean out corrupt politicians of both parties. The Democrats have run phony campaigns to amass delegates, but always they have something up their sleeve. Is it a coincidence that Biden ended up the supposed nominee-elect? With his dementia or Alzheimer’s very apparent, I think not.


In closing, liberals look in the mirror and cry foul and conservatives see the mirror for what it is a reflection.


Liberals accuse others of what they themselves are doing. Conservatives say – open your eyes!


Christians know that what God puts in motion cannot be stopped until HIS plan has been accomplished.


Sometimes God uses a hammer, other times he uses a nail. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


The Response Medical Scientific or Political

read me sign



The Response Medical Scientific or Political


Like many of you I often wonder who thought up these responses to the Virus. Mask, Gloves, Social Distancing, no eating in public places, walking outside in the sun or going out for a Sunday drive just to enjoy the beach or fresh air or to explore the great outdoors. No going to church, the barber or anywhere for that matter.


At this point I’m surprised there has been no “shoot on sight, survivors will be prosecuted”-type order issued.


Recently Los Angeles County issued a decree that everyone must wear a face covering when outside. I don’t live in Los Angeles County but I fail to see the logic? If we are to wear face coverings while in public places (shopping, etc.) then exactly how does keeping a six foot distance between people help? Granted the face covering doesn’t protect the wearer from the virus, only other wearers from catching your cough, sneeze or dribbling cold.


The trouble with stay at home orders it gives you time to think about what’s really important. Have you watched as the farmer opens up the henhouse early in the morning? At first chickens realize the door has been opened and then they pour out into the yard scratching for food and at night they head back inside. The farmer comes along and secures the door not to keep the chickens in but to keep the predators out. Remember it’s for their safety (Sound familiar)? Even the story of Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Bears had the big bad wolf yelling let him in or he’d be huffing and puffing threatening to blow the house down. Did it work? Why does it work now?


So what does the medical experts say about staying at home, wearing a mask, social distancing to fight the virus? What is the diagnosis on this? What does science tell us? Are we better off “in this together” in semi-total isolation away from family and friends? Scientifically are we safer together?


Or is this much ado about nothing? I don’t mean the virus is nothing. It is what it is – a virus. It’s characteristics suggest it inhibits the body’s ability to hold and carry oxygen through the bloodstream leading to higher than normal temperatures accompanied by pain and headaches that if left untreated will cause death.


How is this virus being treated? A typical trip to the emergency room can result in a cursory scan of the body, logging symptoms, prescription for go home and rest, if difficulty breathing occurs come back in or call 911. If untreated for a week or more the primary treatment in the ER may be ventilators to assist with the breathing by keeping the lungs functioning. But what is really happening if there is no oxygen circulating through the blood stream? Oxygen deprivation!


What is keeping doctors, hospitals and medical facilities from using Hydroxychloroquine AND Azithromycin (Z-PAC) to treat patients exhibiting early signs of COVID-19? Is it clinical uncertainty or undue pressure from above? One Sacramento doctor acknowledges that during a pandemic there is no time to waste, early treatment is better than waiting, which can be fatal.


Early on we have been told that heat kills the virus, being outdoors is safer than being cooped up indoors and prolonged wearing of face coverings can lead to carbon dioxide poisoning. Shutting down America does nothing to stop or kill the virus. It simply kills jobs, stifles the economy and prevents workers from earning a living to feed their families. This “cure” is definitely worse than the virus in so many ways.


So that brings us to political ramifications with the upcoming Presidential Election in November 3, 2020. Are we to believe that this entire pandemic is a manufactured one to sway voters? Is the stimulus bills coming out of Congress simply a means to hand breadcrumbs to workers prevented from actually doing work? Is this a ploy to not only bring America to its knees, but to eliminate the middle class and place all working Americans onto welfare rolls? Turn off main stream television and cable news channels for 30 days. Determine in your hearts what is important to you – family, religion, patriotism, nationalism, or selfishness?


We are better than this America! This is the best time to be an American and this is where God has placed you for such a time like this. We have faced adversity in times past, corruption at every level of government and when push comes to shove – WE SHOVE BACK! – I am the Real Truckmaster!




A Sorry State of Affairs



A Sorry State of Affairs


It’s alarming that our government wasn’t prepared for this SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus), since the first SARS-CoV came on the world stage in 2018 without any fanfare. It came in like a puff….and was gone.


It is very possible this virus was a weaponized version of the first SARS virus and deliberately set loose in late 2019 to ruin the US economy which I read is 19% of the global economy. Take one down, the rest create a domino effect.


The Congress of the US is fully committed into impeaching the President of the United States. It is their only priority and they want President Trump to be remembered as the third president to be impeached. While this circus like atmosphere is going on in the chamber of the Senate and Americans are salivating over their very own live television drama the Wuhan Virus has been detected in China.


The President’s advisors give almost unheard of advice – we need to close travel from China. Trump issues a proclamation banning all flights from China into the US. Soon banning travel from other select hot spots worldwide.


By the time the impeachment trial is over the WuFlu is gaining traction and as the US reaches into its PPE stockpile and finds the cupboards are bare or inadequate for the demands that begin pouring in for masks, gloves, gowns and ventilators. Hospital storage supplies are barely keeping up with normal demands. Now we have this potential for catastrophic disaster like the world has never seen before (at least in our lifetime). We find there are no tests available to determine who will be infected. There is no way to gage symptoms not yet known and the fear is that our nation’s hospitals will be grossly overwhelmed.


A presidential team is assembled and brainstorming how to both handle the virus and inform the nation. This is unprecedented in American history to deal with a pandemic and have insufficient access to much needed PPE. What do we do?


President Trump assembles a Coronavirus Task Force under the leadership of Vice President Pence with medical experts to determine the plan of action and response to combat this Chinese virus. A combination of presidential proclamations and Executive Orders the US goes on the offensive. Factories are diverted to produce badly needed PPE (masks, gowns, gloves and ventilators). Across the country businesses large and small get into the process as well. One might even hear the whirring of sewing machines by moms in small towns and large cities as they do their part to make non-medical masks available for others.


How did we get to this sorry state of affairs? Were stockpiles depleted from previous pandemics? Did someone just forget to replenish our nation’s standby stocks?


Who’s to blame? Those on the left say it’s Trump’s fault. He should have been prepared. He should have acted sooner. He should have known. Those on the right say its Obama’s fault. His administration should have acted after H1N1, HIV or Swine Flu. I say it’s our fault because WE historically have elected LIFETIME CONGRESSMEN AND CONGRESSWOMEN to vie for our votes so they can stay in power while doing what feels good for themselves, not their constituents. We elect our governors and state legislators who promise to deliver the moon but are unable to deliver a coherent sentence.


If we have not learned one thing from this COVID-19 it is not the end of the world. We have let ourselves down by allowing the wrong people to influence our health and wellbeing. As a general rule politicians tell what you want to hear, “We must protect our most vulnerable. We must shutdown all non-essential businesses. We must reduce the interaction between individuals. WE MUST FLATTEN THE CURVE! “ It reminds me of a 2012 Clint Eastwood movie “Trouble With The Curve” where a ballplayer couldn’t hit a curve ball.


I say our so-called medical experts are having their own trouble with the curve. They tell us that the only way to save ourselves is self-isolation (to our individual households), no interaction with family or friends. No business dealings unless absolutely necessary. Who EXACTLY makes those types of determinations?


Mankind was created to fellowship with Almighty God and with one another. We learn, grow and yes even our immune systems are strengthened against disease by coming together. One does not develop immunity from something by avoiding it. You don’t learn to ride a bicycle by looking at a picture of a bike or watching someone else ride it from afar.


Our most vulnerable are US, all of us, every one of us, you and me.


Our elderly with existing medical conditions must be protected against infection and disease. Especially those in care facilities or home hospice and it is not done by bringing people infected with COVID-19 into those facilities as residents.


Our pregnant and newborns must be protected until their immune systems develop sufficient to handle germs and diseases. Abortion is not protection, it is murder. Isolation is in itself not protection as it impedes the natural development of the immune system as well as an emotional support system.


We are told that being outdoors and in sunlight will kill the effects of COVID-19 because heat destroys the virus. So why ban walks in the park, bike rides, hikes or camping in the mountains?


We are told to wear face masks, but not this type or that type or? Wearing face masks may be necessary in a medical facility when dealing with SICK PEOPLE.  Prolonged wearing of a face mask can cause serious illnesses by breathing in carbon dioxide from us.


We are told to stay home and self-isolate but working is an essential part of life. Millions of people in our country have stopped working. Businesses have shuttered their doors for good. Families lives are being ruined for our own good – kind of selfish don’t you think?


We are told that everyone will get a stimulus check, an unemployment check as if money fixes everything. It does not and going on the government rolls for free stuff does nothing to stop the virus or flatten the curve. Gas prices have dropped drastically over the past 2 months and we’re supposed to be happy about it? Where can we go on a full tank of gas? To home isolation!


If you ask me (and even if you didn’t) this entire episode is simply a political weaponization of a virus aimed at interfering with the upcoming 2020 presidential election to prevent President Trump from being re-elected at the expense of others regardless the cost. We have allowed ourselves to become disconnected from our God and each other because some politicians don’t like the President! It is time for the freeing of America from Democratic-Socialistic tendencies with shackles that bind us to our political masters. Don’t say you weren’t warned!  – I am the Real Truckmaster!


The Bill of Rights vs COVID-19 Restrictions



The Bill of Rights vs COVID-19 Restrictions


Let me be clear about this the seriousness of the threat of COVID-19 do not give eminence over the Constitutional rights of US Citizens. This should be a wakeup call for citizens across the nation and to governors of every state in the union.


The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


May 8th, 2020 – US District Court in Kentucky granted on behalf of the Tabernacle Baptist Church of Nicholasville a temporary restraining order preventing enforcement of Governor Andy Beshear’s order that prohibits in-person church services and threatens criminal penalties.


The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms.


There are no provisions allowing for distinctions in the type of arms US Citizens are allowed to bear nor for any purpose designated as “authorized” by this Amendment.


The Third Amendment prohibits the government from quartering troops in private homes, a major grievance during the American Revolution.


This Amendment prevented military troops taking one’s home or property for military purposes.


The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. The government may not conduct any searches without a warrant, and such warrants must be issued by a judge and based on probable cause.


This Amendment did not allow law enforcement from conducting searches or seizures without a properly authorized and executed warrant.


The Fifth Amendment provides that citizens not be subject to criminal prosecution and punishment without due process. Citizens may not be tried on the same set of facts twice, and are protected from self-incrimination (the right to remain silent). The amendment also establishes the power of eminent domain, ensuring that private property is not seized for public use without just compensation.


This Amendment required due process, tried only once for the same facts and prevented self-incrimination (Miranda Rights) and prevented eminent domain takeover of private property without fair compensation.


The Sixth Amendment assures the right to a speedy trial by a jury of one’s peers, to be informed of the crimes with which they are charged, and to confront the witnesses brought by the government. The amendment also provides the accused the right to compel testimony from witnesses, and to legal representation.


This Amendment assured one of a speedy trial by a jury of one’s peers, know the charges and confront witnesses. It compels witness testimony and guaranteed legal representation.


The Seventh Amendment provides that civil cases also be tried by jury.


This Amendment required civil cases be tried by a jury.


The Eighth Amendment prohibits excessive bail, excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments.


This Amendment prevented excessive bail, excessive fines, cruel and unusual punishment.


The Ninth Amendment states that the list of rights enumerated in the Constitution is not exhaustive, and that the people retain all rights not enumerated.


This Amendment declared the list of rights under the Constitution is not limited, and those rights not given by the people are retained by the people.
