Power vs Authority




Power vs Authority


I’m sure volumes have been written about both power and authority. Someone with authority does not have to prove but must exercise their authority to those who fall under that authority. The owner of a business tells the employees what is expected of them to do their jobs, but is not involved in the daily goings on of the company. He is concerned with efficiency, customer satisfaction and making a profit.


A millionaire who doesn’t have to prove his wealth, he knows what he has and is free to spend it as he wishes. On the other hand someone might hang around those who are wealthy hoping it will rub off and onto them, or as a means to impress others.


There are unwritten rules that you don’t go into someone else’s place and tell them how to do things unless you have authorization – authority! You don’t criticize the chef who’s cooking your meal and you don’t go into mammas kitchen without permission and you don’t mess with your barber!


God is the ultimate authority of the universe. The Word of God is the ultimate authority for man to live by on earth. It doesn’t matter whether we like it or hate it – God’s Word is supreme. We have only 2 choices – Obedience or Disobedience. Understand there are consequences for both.


The establishment of governments and rulers is by God. Nobody becomes a king, a president or a ruler unless it is brought about by God. Thus it is under HIS authority that rulers rise up and are brought down. Throughout history we can see that not all rulers have been good. In fact it is the nature of man to sin against the will of Almighty God.


We are told in Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” God is not taken by surprise.


The Constitution of the United States clearly states that state and federal governments receive power from the citizens. Power not given to the state or the federal government is retained by the citizens.


Therefore politicians have the constitutional authority AND responsibility to use their enumerated powers wisely. Why do we so often see the blatant misuse of power beyond the authority of their political office?


Once someone has been given power its taste often leads to wanting more and can best described by a quotation of the 19th century British politician Lord Acton “Absolute power corrupts absolutely“.


Someone with power but not having authority will almost always try to exert that power by brute force over another. They feel it is their right, their obligation to demonstrate the power of their might as a means of intimidation to control someone else.


We see it when a drug dealer or a rapper to flash their cash or fling their bling in the face of others online selfies and videos for their friends, associates and rivals as a sign they have arrived. I call it greed.


Over time we have seen a lot of corruption take over American politics and those elected into political office become lifetime politicians feeding and bleeding tax dollars for their own personal gain while many have become millionaires.


For years American Christians have pleaded with God to save our nation and heal our land. The bible states very clearly, ” if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).


Our hearts are stubborn and we want God to act without us doing our part. Some have even gone so far as to demand an answer from God.


It is ludicrous for the pot to demand of the potter ANYTHING!


When God does hear committed Christians, seeking God’s face and humbly praying for forgiveness of the sins of our nation, he is quick to forgive and eager to answer.


All too often when the answer comes we think God has made a mistake? Let me assure you that God does not make mistakes. Everything is according to HIS plan and HIS will.


What would you do if God called YOUR NAME? What would your reaction be? Would you hide? Would you say I’m not worthy? Or would you say, “Speak Lord, your servant listens?” Those are all reactions from men of the bible. What about David who stood up against the giant Goliath and by the power of God slew the giant with a single stone?


In 1986 Donald Trump during a televised interview was asked if he would ever consider running for President. Without hesitation he said, “If my country needed me I would run.” This calling lasted for more than 30 years by the man who was making his mark in New York real estate construction yet felt that the time was not yet. This was a man who had power and authority in Trump Enterprises. He had everything imaginable, all the money and toys and lived the lifestyle of the rich and famous.


As American Christians continued praying God heard their prayers.


If you’ve read “The Faith of Donald J. Trump” you know what Paul Harvey would have said, “The rest of the story”.


When God called, Donald Trump said, “Yes Lord, your servant listens”. Not in those exact words because let’s face it God knew him, but he did not yet really know God. Over a period of weeks if not months God put into motion a series of events that would provide conformation of the calling God had put into the heart of Donald Trump many years before.


It is often God’s plan to use other people, (strangers) to bring forth a word from God that confirms what God has been speaking to our hearts. That is what God did in this instance. He spoke to a man of God in Texas that Donald Trump would be the 45th President of the United States. At first the man laughed. He didn’t know Trump and this sounded at the very least farfetched. Then God spoke to him a second time and said that Donald Trump would be an Isaiah 45 President. God said go tell Donald Trump he would stop evil and be a sword to the spirit of political correctness. A few weeks later that man was invited by a pastor to a meeting with Donald Trump in Trump Tower. He was asked to tell what God had said. The man repeated what God had said and to be clear read Isaiah 45 in its entirety.


In 2015 when Donald and Melania Trump came down the escalator and as Trump announced his intent to run for President of the United States America was stunned and went into a state of shock. For many it seemed as if God had made a huge mistake Trump couldn’t possibly be God choice for America.


I will tell you again – God doesn’t make mistakes. He takes the most unlikely to do the unthinkable in order to demonstrate HIS power over any situation. God gave power and authority to Donald Trump as he ran an unlikely campaign against very seasoned politicians.


I won’t go into the details of the past 4 years, but I can tell you that the sheer force of evil that has come up against Donald Trump from that day in 2015 until today in 2020 would have toppled even the most experienced politician without God’s help. We have seen an increase in political correctness across America and throughout the world as the forces of darkness continue to opposed and resist what God is doing. When you have power and authority and are doing what God has commanded, nothing can stop you unless allowed by God. – I am the Real Truckmaster!





National Security Private Servers and Official Classified Documents




National Security Private Servers and Official Classified Documents


Everyone who has worked for the US government in any capacity involving computers understands cyber security and safeguarding classified documents. In fact many US government employees, elected officials and political appointees take an oath to do just that. Members of Congress and Administration cabinet officials all pledge to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic.


Cyber security is taken very seriously in the Department of Defense and violations are handled rather quickly even for seemingly minor infractions. Take the case of a young sailor during the Obama Administration on a submarine who was convicted of sending a photo home from inside a classified nuclear submarine. Did you say double standard? I certainly did and so did President Trump. It wasn’t until Trump pardoned the sailor that he was released from confinement.


So how is it that the spouse of a former President, a former Senator and at the time the sitting Secretary of State in the Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton decided against all protocols and common sense to use a private email server to send and receive classified correspondence instead of official channels?


Recently testifying before a Senate committee former Acting Director of the FBI in the Obama Administration, Sally Yates also admitted using a private email server for official business.


It brings into question unlawful practices involving National Security that may have occurred elsewhere in the Obama Administration, like say in the White House with POTUS44 (Obama) and/or VP47 (Biden). If that isn’t scary enough given the corruption emerging from within the Democratic Party, what if this violation of Cyber Security occurred in other cabinet posts and/or Ambassadorships? Or extended to Congressional Democrats (current and former) or their Congressional Staff in Washington or in their home offices? With all the “leaking” of sensitive information to the press over the past 4 years and the endless Congressional Committee “investigations” I suspect that the swamp is much larger and deeper than anyone is aware of and for reasons not yet disclosed. We have former national security officials appearing on mainstream daytime news media programs and nightly talk shows pushing their hatred for Trump and promoting their latest tell all book deals, possibly containing classified material with nobody the wiser………until now. If you begin hearing a huge sucking sound coming out of Washington don’t be surprised if it is only the sound of the swamp draining. – I am the Real Truckmaster!







Controversy Over Black Lives Matter




Controversy Over Black Lives Matter


Instead of walking on eggshells I want to directly engage a discussion of the BLM movement. I can appreciate and share the concern about black lives. Their creation came about during the Obama administration and their leader was even invited to the White House by President Obama. What they discussed was anybody’s guess as I saw little to nothing in the media afterwards.


Since then the BLM movement virtually stalled in Seattle. They were not prepared for or organized to spread nationally until the untimely death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The BLM Foundation quickly seized at the opportunity of local community protest and as they moved into the highly profile scene, not realizing they were not the only ones (Antifa) had also been paying attention to what was beginning to happening.


It is my opinion that Antifa (a designated domestic terrorist organization) hijacked the BLM movement and turned peaceful protests into chaotic scenes of rioting, vandalizing, looting, burning, with assaults and murder under the banner of BLM. As news reporting showed protest marches and rioting I couldn’t help but notice the Antifa “uniform” of black or dark clothing, face coverings, helmets, clubs, guns and many white people holding BLM banners and Antifa flags.


Without realizing or wanting it to happen like this Black Lives Matter became the mantra chanted at every protest march and rioting. Even when statues began to be toppled it was known as BLM doing the dirty work. I don’t think the founder of BLM Foundation imagined the impact it would have on American lives let alone black lives.


Many politicians saw the BLM movement as a means to solidify their political career by catering to the demands and going so far as to ignore common sense and put BLACK LIVES MATTER in your face and on city streets in Democratically controlled cities, even violating local laws, ordnances and protocols.


As the cry to “Defund the Police” and “Abolish the Police” became the rallying cry of Antifa and socialistic radicals across the nation these same politicians did not oppose them, but began giving in to their demands against public safety concerns of their citizens. Their decisions paved way to widespread destruction of infrastructure and public safety as open assaults have been allowed to continue for more than 2 months already.


It is currently politically incorrect to challenge the premise that Black Lives Matter. Anyone who questions that statement must be a racist! Advertisers have put together catchy 60 second spots on television and cable that now say “No Lives Matter until Black Lives Matter first”. Why is it important that anyone think that Black Lives Matter, when down in the “Hood” black lives clearly don’t matter as black-on-black crime continues to rise in places like Chicago, New York City and many other places.


The premise that cops are out to get black lives is a fantasy. Statistics show that cops enforcing the laws may in fact encounter more black suspects because there is more black criminal activity and gang violence, yet black deaths at the hands of cops is exceedingly low compared to other racial groupings.


What I fail to see is why high level politicians and former government officials do not give their priority to reducing crime in these crime ridden areas? What has Obama done during his time in the Senate and as President and in the 4 years after to actively organize efforts to reduce the crime in Chicago where he was first serving as an appointed/elected official? As a community organizer when did he organize Chicago into Neighborhood Watch communities? He clearly has the experience and financial resources to give back to those who gave him their trust. If Black Lives Mattered to Obama why did he not focus on criminal reforms that would lift the black community out of the poverty that traps them?


If Black Lives Matter, I mean really matter why do black legislators and politicians do nothing to stop activities like Planned Parenthood who target the disadvantaged primarily in the black community by aborting (murdering) the unborn while they are still living inside the womb?


I say to the founder of Black Lives Matter take your message of hope to the inner city and teach respect for others so they will choose to stop this unnecessary violence when drugs and money equal power over others and fear and intimidation are tactics designed to keep people oppressed. How can you even say Black Lives Matter when your actions say otherwise? Without God there is no hope. Without God there is no future to look forward to, we must learn to fear God, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. We must learn to respect and put others first.


All Lives Matter – unless you believe your life doesn’t matter. – I am the Real Truckmaster!









If I ask what is essential I’d get different answers depending on who I asked right?


So I looked online at these three different sites:


Essential – Definition, absolutely necessary; indispensable.



Essential – Suggests that which is in the very essence or constitution of a thing.



Essential – Definition: Necessary or needed.



In light of recent events we are constantly bombarded with the political implications regarding who, what or when someone or some place is deemed essential. I still want to know who decided to make that worldwide determination for mankind. Who is the driving force behind it all?


One of the first things after the surfacing of the China Virus or as it has now been dubbed “The Election Infection” was the determination of businesses that were essential. It was consensual that hospitals and first responders were essential to treating those who became infected with the COVID-19 virus. It also made hospital workers, doctors, nursing and medical staff essential. Law Enforcement, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Technicians were included in this initial order.


All personnel not employed in critical care medical treatment facilities were considered non-essential and ordered to remain home in self-isolation. No trips to the store, no barber or beauty salon services, no visiting relatives, no worship services and no recreation facilities could open. Stay safe at home and we’re together alone became catch phrases to live by. All other businesses were considered non-essential and must immediately close. Schools and all education facilities were closed indefinitely. Children were to be home-schooled (parents weren’t allowed back to work yet anyway).


It was soon realized (sooner for some) that food and medications were needed by residents and grocery stores could open with caveats – facemasks, social distancing and limited number of patrons allowed. This meant that grocery store workers were now considered essential and some were allowed to go to work. Then home supply (hardware) stores were considered essential and store employees were allowed back to work. Customers had to comply with caveats – facemasks, social distancing and limited number of customers allowed. It wasn’t long before liquor stores and marijuana shops became essential and their store workers became essential. Next hair salons, massage parlors and hands on medical treatment facilities were deemed essential and their workers allowed back to work. Every time an entity was deemed essential, so were their workers. One of the last vestiges were restaurants comply with caveats – facemasks, social distancing and limited number of customers allowed.


So 20 + weeks into this economic shutdown schools are still closed and teachers are fighting returning to work over fears of catching the virus. Churches in many areas are allowed to reopen at 50% capacity and comply with caveats – facemasks, social distancing and limited number of congregation allowed.


During this time of shutdown protests turning into riots began to breakout in cities across the nation. Businesses and official government facilities were vandalized, looted and burned while local politicians restricted law enforcement response an allowed lawlessness to continue. Apparently lawless domestic terrorists had been deemed essential and exempt for complying with caveats – facemasks, social distancing and no limit on the number of rioters allowed to participate. Many innocent civilians were attacked, injured and killed in the name of social justice while officials cheered and/or participated.


Who died and left the hidden person in charge of essential/non-essential determinations. Is it the same person(s) who decided that there is no cure for COVID-19 and everyone must remain at home until a vaccine is available for all?  So many questions and every answer lead to even more questions. Will all this craziness suddenly end after November 3rd, 2020? Will life return to normal with all the violence just a bad dream? Regardless of the outcome of the election will everything suddenly be better on November 4th, 2020?


The only thing that is essential for life is Almighty God. He is the giver of life and the creator God. If he created it – it is essential. No government, man or entity can save mankind from the craziness of life as we know it. Only salvation in the blood and name of Jesus Christ is essential to take one to the throne of Almighty God in heaven. – I am the Real Truckmaster!





Then God Sent a Warrior




Then God Sent a Warrior


As this fictional story goes a man was trapped on top of his house in a flood. He prayed asking God to save him. As the flood waters kept rising a helicopter came and lowered a rope ladder. “Grab hold of the ladder” someone yelled from the helicopter. The man refused, saying “God will save me.” Next came a boat and someone yells to the man, “Get in the boat.” The man refused, saying “God will save me.” Finally he water rose over the top of the house and the man drowned. At the pearly gate the man cried out to God, “Why didn’t you save me?” It is told that God answered, “I sent a helicopter and a boat. Why didn’t you get in?”


The state of the nation has been in a virtual decline for quite some time. We are like frogs in a pot of lukewarm water and the burner has been on low. As a nation we’re wrestling with racism which threatens to divide us. We’ve grown accustomed to and made abortion not only acceptable but a women’s “right” issue. We’ve made it legal to recognize gay “rights” and openly flaunt same sex or “partner” relations outside of traditional marriage. We’ve taken God out of schools, businesses and politics. It is acceptable to talk about religion, just not about God or godly values. Our blind acceptance of worldly values and political correctness is taking our nation down a road to nowhere.


For years Christians have been on their knees praying for God to save our nation from our sins. We question that our prayers are even heard? We doubt that if heard our prayers will not even be answered? We have doubted God and submitted ourselves to fear. We have doubted ourselves? Do we really trust God? Maybe we are not worthy? Maybe we are justified by our doubt and fear? How would we know if God really did answer? Would he give us a sign?


Maybe it’s time we go back in time and read Isaiah 45 to see what God did when he called Cyrus to become king of Israel? Although Cyrus didn’t know God, God heard the people wanting a king and he gave them Cyrus.


The same is true of our nation. Although not mentioned in the bible, the United States was created with a purpose to be a shining city on a hill for the glory of God. A people wanting freedom to worship God, live peacefully and raise their families. And as will everything that God creates, there are elements of the dark side who attempt to derail what God is doing. When we settled peacefully in the colonies, trouble showed its ugly head with the introduction of slavery, deception and murder. As our nation expanded from sea to shining sea, trouble showed its ugly head even more with lying, deceit, greed and the thirst for power over people. As our nation grew, so was the thirst for power. Americans chose and adopted a Constitution based upon godly principles that became our Rule of Law. Americans wanted a king, but instead chose presidents to head our newly formed Constitutional-Republic.


During the past 240+ years since 1776 we have had a total of 45 presidents. Each one selected by Almighty God for specific times and purposes. Not all have been godly men. Some have been deeply rooted in religion, while others had their feet firmly planted in the world. Some were of strong character, while others were in fact weak. During trying times in our nation’s history God chose men for each occasion. Often they have been popular men with viable name recognition it has been the most unlikely choice.


Just in my lifetime after the assassination of JFK, we got LBJ. After the resignation of Nixon we got Ford. Terrorist attacks on our homeland occurred with Reagan, Clinton, Bush and the people wanted more and God sent Obama. God’s way is not to force his will on anyone so clearly giving people what they want is not always best. Always giving our children what want is not always what they need or what is best for them either. Not satisfied the people cried out to God even more as the world continued its downhill spiral. God needed a warrior to stop evil and expose the evils of political corruption so God sent Trump.


You may be thinking that God made a mistake? You would be wrong.


How do I know? Look around at the evil that has risen to an unprecedented level, never before seen in the history of our nation. Trump was not on anybody’s radar as a politician. By all standards Trump is a self-made man. He has everything imaginable – power, fame and fortune. Hobnobbing with the rich and famous, even politicians saw him as a feather in their caps. A picture with him was a trophy and his donations were sought. Everything changed when Trump entered into the political arena.


Campaigning on Building the wall, draining the swamp and making America great again sent shockwaves throughout political circles on both sides of the isle. Trump became poison as politicians wanted nothing to do with him. After Trump’s inauguration Congressional GOP began distancing themselves from him. Congressional Democrats began a campaign of resistance. Entrenched Obama Administration enacted a coup and began conspiring to remove him from office – one way or another and at all costs.


Americans did not know, nor did we realize there even was a swamp in Washington. We have long suspected that politicians have their own political survival first and foremost as their priority. We have gotten used to expecting them to tell us what we want to hear, while doing what we cannot see and we have been living with the consequences. What goes on in Washington doesn’t stay there, but affects us all. Politicians are not held to the same standard or rules as the average taxpaying citizens. We have never been aware of how a public servant can become a millionaire on taxpayer dollars?


A great number of American voters are influenced by unsavory politicians, unethical news outlets and dishonest staff, but have never met, negatively or personally affected by Donald J. Trump as president or otherwise. Their dislike is solely manufactured.


Likewise many who call themselves Christians are taken back by the sinful nature of the man based on what has been released in the media. They do not equate themselves to the sinful nature of man in that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. They do not believe that God would save such a man as Trump. So I ask, did God save a sinner like you or me? Is it not God’s will that no man perish? Is it God’s will that everyone come to the salvation knowledge of God?


When God called his name, Donald Trump could have said, I’m an important man and I’m busy. Yet he did not. We are told many are called but few are chosen. Of those who answer the call of God are even fewer. They are the ones who have the most to give up. So why would a man who has everything, give it up to become President of the United States? Did he anticipate the amount of anger and resentment that would rise up against him or did he trust God? Trump has a vision of great things for our nation and he made it his purpose to be obedient to what God called him to do. It’s such a huge responsibility. Doesn’t the bible tell us to whom much is given, much is required?


Do you know that when George W. Bush became President his first official trip outside the United States was to Mexico? Do you know that when Barack H. Obama became President his first official trip outside the United States was to Canada? Do you know that when Donald J. Trump became President his first official trip outside the United States was a five-day “World Religion Tour” to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where he was greeted by Saudi King Salman and spoke at the Abdulaziz International Conference Center, then he went to Israel where he met with the Prime Minister of Israel, before going to the infamous Wailing Wall. He then had a solemn discussion with the Palestinian leader. The purpose of this trip was to begin Middle East Peace Talks, and then he went to Rome where he met with the Pope? While President Trump was initiating international diplomacy abroad the Congressional Democrats were plotting ways to impeach him. What does that tell you? It confirms what I already knew, that Donald J. Trump was the right man as the 45th President. It signaled that trouble lay ahead for him, his administration and for the American people.


That was 4 years ago and much water has crossed under the bridge since then. Because this is an election year and all previous attempts to sabotage the Trump presidency have failed we started off 2020 with a totally new issue facing our nation and the world. It is the China Virus that surfaced in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Over the years we’ve had other virus’ impact our world, but none so mysterious as this unknown entity called COVID-19.


What may have begun accidently in a laboratory in Wuhan, China has caused a great amount of anxiety and confusion worldwide. There have been shortages of virtually every type of commodity you can name. Those most notable shortages were over toilet paper, hand towels, hand sanitizer and various cleaning agents. Other shortages included meat, eggs and a host of other food items and necessities. Currently there appears to be a nationwide coin shortage (first time in history).


We are down to the wire with 90 days before the 2020 Presidential Election. The field has narrowed to Democratic challenger former Vice President Joe Biden and Karen Bass Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. They promise to raise taxes and undue what the current administration has done. They offer no hope of a better tomorrow, only a future moving forward without a President Trump in it.


The incumbent President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have engaged the consciousness of America with hope for a brighter future ahead while they opt for a Safer America with even more jobs available and an economy far better than ever (before COVID-19).


It now comes down to American voters to decide if they want more rioting and lawlessness in a Biden presidency or do you want more hope for you and your families in a better tomorrow from a continuation of the Trump presidency? Elected officials know that to get your vote they must sing the same old song, dance to the same old tune and do so until the polls close in Hawaii on November 3rd, 2020.


Happy with your free stuff vote Blue – happy with your OWN stuff vote Red – I am the Real Truckmaster!




Why Must You Explain Doing Right?




Why Must You Explain Doing Right?


Recently Orlando Magic Forward Jonathon Isaac stood during the National Anthem prior to the game while all other players took a knee. Since when must someone explain doing the right thing?


Steelers Defensive End Stephon Tuitt recently explained why he stands as a proud American and will continue to honor his country and set an example for his children to stand for what they believe in.


In 2017 Steelers Alehandro Villanueva a US Army Veteran and former Captain chose to defiance of the team by standing during the National Anthem, was severely reprimanded and team shamed until he issued a public apology for defying other members of the team.


During an international competition of the US Women’s Volleyball Kelly O’Hara sprang into action to rescue the American flag.


US Women’s Volleyball team captain Megan Rapinoe did quite the opposite by dishonoring the nation she represented on foreign soil.


Answer me this: Since when has kneeling become the norm and honoring the nation, its symbols and traditions something to be avoided in the United States of America?


Every player who kneeled should have had to explain why they chose to be disrespectful before being terminated. I don’t know if the blame is totally on the players, after all they’re only doing what they see others do, right? Pier shaming is now the new normal in professional sports. Football players do it. Baseball players do it. Basketball players do it. Race car drivers do it. Volleyball players do it. I’ll bet even professional swimmers too?


This started after President Trump made a statement that those dishonoring the flag or national anthem should be fired after the Kapearnick incident on national television in 2017.


At that particular time in our nation’s history public display of national disrespect became acceptable. Did it begin at home? How can that be when Kapearnick came from a wealthy, privileged family? Did they fail to teach American history in his upper class preppy school? Maybe he’s simply a victim of white privilege?


Even the National Football League made a decision, as did the owners, coaches and managers of many professional sports teams to error on the side of disrespect by allowing political discord onto the sidelines, into the dugouts and even onto player’s uniforms.


It is time for everyone to stop allowing herd mentality to govern doing the wrong thing for any reason. The answer is simple, if you don’t like where you live move. If you feel oppressed living in the United States then go somewhere else with hundreds of countries to choose from finding a suitable place should be easy – don’t forget to bring and wear a mask.


Call me old fashion or a relic of the past but there are things you don’t do around me.

Don’t take the name of the Lord in vain

Don’t act stupid.

Don’t cuss.

Don’t chew.

Don’t go out with women that do.

Don’t mess with my family.

Don’t disrespect or abuse the elderly (anyone older than you).

Don’t mistreat animals.


Honor the United States of America

Honor the Constitution of the United States

Honor the President and Vice President

Honor the Flag,

Honor the National Anthem


Respect the symbols of our nation’s history (statues)

Respect mom and dad (grands too)

Respect brothers and sisters (everyone)

Treat others fairly and with the utmost respect


It may have been fig Newton who said for every action there are consequences.

Newton’s Law of Motion: To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction:

Disrespect has very real yet often unequal consequences. – I am the Real Truckmaster!




Illiteracy Shackles the Mind


(Internet Photo)



Illiteracy Shackles the Mind


Can someone be educationally illiterate or an educated illiterate? You know what I’m referring to a virtual know-it-all who knows absolutely nothing of which he’s claims. In the military they are the ones who rise to the top of their professional educational class, have checked off all the boxes and gotten them all correct yet when putting it into practice “hands-on” they fall flat on their face. We used to say they couldn’t walk and chew gum at the same time. Meaning they couldn’t walk and chew gum.


The same thing happens with political correctness. It is often smooth flowing words without engaging the analytical thought process. Someone might say something like “get yourself in gear by putting your finger in your ear”. Pretty soon someone else says it and others begin to chime in and then you have a mob walking around with their finger in their ear thinking they are getting themselves in gear. It might work for a little while until you try walking through a doorway, into a crowded elevator and someone pushes your arm to get the door closed. Closed door, open mind – literally as the finger protrudes into the ear cavity causing serious damage. Remember the woman who murdered her husband by feeding him drain cleaner and blaming it on President Trump who touted hydroxychloroquine? Whatever happened to her? Being illiterate doesn’t mean being stupid, quite the contrary, it just means being smart about the wrong thing.


See what’s happened with the political correctness craze, or should I say crazies. Someone claims ducks are offended by a Portland football team known as “The Ducks” and demands they change their name. Rather than some corporate executive or football coach explain the art of pounding salt, someone decides that ducks are being offended. In fact at football practice a flyover of offended ducks quacking madly “CHANGE THE NAME” in duck talk caused the water boy to have a social meltdown. So it is decided that the new name will be the “Portland Quakers”. That is until The Religious Order of the Quakers raises a ruckus.


Taken to the extreme the American English language will have to be seriously pared down because we have too many words that mean different things in other languages. In fact many of our words come from other languages.


But suppose we take things literally we’d have to stop calling it French bread unless it is made in France.

For sure French fries made at McD’s would have to be called something else too.

How about authentic Italian pizza, made in Brooklyn?

Popeye’s chicken couldn’t be called Popeye’s unless someone could verify that Popeye really made it.

Baby powder couldn’t be called that unless you could show powdered baby stuff in its composition.

Frankfurt, Kentucky would have to be renamed because it isn’t in Germany.

New York would have to be renamed unless you can show where on the map is Old York?

African-Americans could no longer be called that because unless they were born in Africa it is too offensive to claim to be from the African Continent, when you are actually from the American Continent and those two are vastly and geographically different.

All the names of American cities, counties, states and/or territories that are in a foreign language would have to be renamed to something uniquely American. There could be no Snake River winding across Idaho and Oregon unless it could be named after a non-threatening type of snake who is not offended.


Have you had enough? I sure have and that’s one more reason to get off this PC kick and start thinking of ways to make America a much better, safer and nicer place to live and raise a family. It’s too bad that every time someone raises the PC banter, he or she could simply be beamed over to another country and become their own problem?


Ask any new American citizen why they came to America and I’ll bet they don’t say to become Politically Correct and make everyone uneasy when I’m around. Conversely take any PC American and place them in a foreign country that they choose and see how far being PC takes them?


That’s why I say Illiteracy Shackles the Mind and Political Correctness is the manifestation of the disease of Illiteracy. Don’t just take my word for it. Look around and see for yourself. Do you want to be the one calling 911 because momma isn’t wearing a mask? Momma can handle a switch or a belt very effectively before the PC police can show up to rescue your sorry behind.

Civil Unrest in Pre-Election America

Civil Unrest in Post-Election America


There are pictures circulating on Facebook that depicting 13 of those arrested in Portland were of public school teachers. I don’t know how valid or accurate that picture was so I didn’t use it. However it got me to thinking that if 1 teacher in 1 public school taught for 1 year or more having inserted communistic, fascist or anti-government babble into their classroom or into the school curriculum how many exponential future fascistic children would be running around with that stuff swirling in their heads?


If you go back to the anti-war protestors of the 1960s – 70s I’m sure there are a number who are now college and university faculty, adjuncts, teachers, professors, administrators or deans. Fast forward to our present day prestigious colleges and universities and you see the most anti-American, anti-government and anti-social behavior of their students and alumni.


American families have been lulled into thinking that our children must get an education to be successful in life. Jane and Johnny are sent away to “summer camps” for 4 years or more and expected to come back with a diploma and as a seasoned and highly successful member of society.


What happens at college is often far from an optimal educational setting and Jane or Johnny get caught up in the party scene of a 4 year “spring break” mentality, their advanced degree in “the mating call of the butterfly” has led to massive debt, no job prospects but individuals primed and ready to do something – anything. They are too “smart” for fast food, yet too dumb and without any real job skills and living in mom and dad’s basement playing video games that are geared to fighting an apocalypse where destroy everything is called winning. You use up all your ammo, wait or hack into the supply chain and refill your ammo supply. You die and simply restart as a new yet smarter fighter – you have become a super sniper.


An ad on social media is for snipers going up against “the man” and zing – you now have a mission. The problem with this new “job” is that it’s not a video game and the stakes are real, as are the consequences. Meeting up with other likeminded individuals out after dark, lurking around and waiting for that target of opportunity or the command from higher to attack to destroy, burn and attack some more is too much for the average “spring break” graduate to resist. Businesses and buildings are destroyed, set on fire and anyone in range is a target. When the police show up its “attack the police” for they are bad.


You think it’s a bit far-fetched? Think again. Someone is putting up big bucks to orchestrate the types and frequency of the rioting we are seeing in cities across the nation. The logistics of arming and moving an army is no small task. It takes coordination and lots of money. To move that army across state boundaries is a tremendous undertaking and it is also against the law if your purpose is to cause mischievous or conduct a full-fledged riot. There must be political connections. There must be coordination of effort, food, shelter and weaponry and all that cost money. I say follow the money.


The immobilizing of law enforcement must come from the top down. That means either somebody in DOJ, HLS; state or local agencies must be involved. What we know today is that all things are political due to the upcoming presidential election. We have heard very little to nothing of substance coming out of congress or by state and local officials who blame it all on President Trump.


Well here’s a news flash. This has nothing to do with President Trump, but it has everything to do with American’s who continue to vote in politicians who have no vision of a better country, but promise more free stuff for everyone. “Don’t worry we’ll tax the rich and they’ll pay dearly for it. Take from the rich and give to the poor”, sounds a lot like Robin Hood doesn’t it? It’s been tried and it doesn’t work. Not even scratching or winning on a lottery ticket can make you come out a winner. When it’s something for nothing, you usually end up with nothing.


Do you want to be a winner? Stop listening to losers (See that was easy). Hard work, dedication, and attention to detail, invest yourself in your work and do your very best at whatever you do. When you win, America wins. – I am the Real Truckmaster!




Yes You Can Lead a Horse to Water




Yes You Can Lead a Horse to Water


It’s kind of like “Yes Virginia there is a Santa Clause” only different. If I‘ve written one I’ve written a hundred articles about Democratic corruption in Congress and in American politics. The stories all seem to be the same old thing over and over again. The only thing new is the way Democratic politicians think they’ve discovered a new way to defeat Trump.


From the onset Trump went from Bling Bling to Zing Zing once he announced his intent to run not just for politics but for the highest prize in politics – the Presidency of the United States, after all he wasn’t even a politician and they probably thought he didn’t know how politics even worked. They were right about one thing for sure – Trump wasn’t a politician.


They were dead wrong by thinking Trump didn’t know how politics worked. He had been pulling their political strings for years as he used the political climate when it was to his political favor. When thrown obstacles by local politicians Trump even used mob backed teamsters to pull an end run around those politically smart politicians and got what he needed as Frank Sinatra would have said, “I did it my way”.


It was as if Trump prepared his entire life for this moment in time. Early on he raised his children not as privileged rich kids, although by American standards they most certainly were, but on the job in the construction industry at the bottom. When asked they would readily admit to going to work and doing the hard stuff the down and dirty work for many years before ever moving up in the family business.


When it became time he knew who would replace him at the helm and who he could rely on to become special advisors in the Trump Administration. He trained them well and they would never let him down as he pledged as president to never let Americans down.


America is on the eve of the 2020 presidential election and over the past 4+ years we have witnessed unprecedented number of personal and political attacks meant to destroy his reputation, degrade his family and sink his presidency. Politicians do not recover from these kinds of attacks, yet Trump is not your run of the mill politicians.


The latest attack on the Trump Administration came yesterday as House Democrats demanded the US Attorney General appear before them and answer truthfully their questions. What happened was vastly different than when Chairman Nadler gave his opening remarks meant to nail AG Barr to the barn door, as he unwittingly left the barn door open but forgot to bring the nails. As we saw in the impeachment of the president, the atmosphere in the House chamber was that of a circus. Democrats rapidly fired questions at AG Barr and as he began to respond, they would “reclaim their time” and do it again, then one after another, time and time again without providing sufficient time to hear any answer given, and often before it had been given. On the other hand Republicans began showing videos of the violence being perpetuated against Americans in cities across the nation, while listing the baseless charges from Democrats against the president and his administration and backing up the actions of the Trump Administration’s DOJ.


It is obvious that the Democratic Political Playbook contains but a single sentence or paragraph: “Defeat Trump at any cost, refer to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and use pictures.”


This entire article is my opinion and I’m very happy to share it with you. The Democratic Party in supporting Domestic Terrorist Groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter and a host of other fascistic gangs are encouraging America’s demise as a Suicide by Proxy or more aptly called Suicide by Cop.


The political leftists have hijacked peaceful protests and quickly orchestrated rioting, burning, looting and increased attacks on innocent civilians, responding law enforcement as well as personal, private and public buildings in an effort to discredit the Trump administration and demoralize his supporters.


Mayors, city council members, and Governors have stood up with the lawless while abandoning their citizens. They have restricted and in many cases chosen to reduce funding of law enforcement. Some have restrained LEOs from using NON-LETHAL FORCE to control rioting crowds. That leaves two choices, use lethal force or do nothing! Governors have the power to bring in the National Guard to restore law and order, but mostly do not.


When ordered into rioting cities to protect federal property DOJ taskforces are resisted by the very mayors, city councils and Governors who failed to take appropriate action to prevent rioting in the first place. These are Democratic politicians who conspire together AGAINST the use of federal LEOs.


Keep in mind America is in month 4 of nationwide lockdowns, times of social distancing, masks wearing and combatting the use of life saving medications that can reduce the death toll from this COVID-19 virus that has been politically weaponized in this election year 2020.


As more Americans are tested for the COVID-19 virus, the death rate is far lower than expected. In fact it is much lower than we are seeing from the flu or from doctor assisted murder of aborted babies COMBINED.


Don’t be fooled into thinking that the virus is a hoax. The COVID-19 virus is real. The treatments are real, some are real good and some are real bad. Panic is not a treatment. Mixing politics with medicine is bad medicine. What is also bad medicine is putting your trust in a man or a medicine. Man will fail you. Man cannot heal you. Man cannot guarantee your outcome. Medicine cannot heal you and if used improperly it can kill you. Without God there is no hope. Place your trust in God, he has everything under control. Only God can heal your body and your soul. If you’re a believer there is hope, God can heal you or take you into his presence.


What will be interesting is how American’s respond to the increased panic and fear over the next 90+ days until November 3, 2020. Will they vote for the party promoting this panic and fear that has no answer, no plan or idea how to proceed going forward?


Or will voters vote for the party or more specifically the candidates who offer hope of a brighter future and have a plan to move America forward? More American voters are becoming “woke” to the fact that not everything you hear or read online, in the news or by third parties is in fact true. It is not possible to even trust the “fact checkers” at various social media sites as many times they are simply parroting political talking points.

This is for All the Marbles



This is for All the Marbles


When I was growing up guys had marbles, girls had marbles and we all had marbles. We’d trade marbles and play for fun or winner takes the other guys marble and sometimes we used to play for all the marbles. Dad used to talk about his marble tournaments at school and when he won he took the money. Today we’re too busy to bother with marbles unless they have a video game of using marbles to destroy someone else’s marbles?


During times of war there are rules that nations agreed to when waging war against another country. Armies were lined up dress-right-dress (a military term) and marched into battle. Each side took turns pelting the other side until the one left standing was the winner by default. The winner enjoyed the spoils of war, pillage, plunder and taking the losing sides women, children, livestock and valuables.


When the colonists declared their independence from England it meant war with the most powerful military force at that time, by a handful of farmers, hunters and shopkeepers untrained in military tactics. Trying to stand up and fight face to face was all too often disastrous and new tactics had to be used. A new kind of fighting by leaders like Francis Marion (the swamp fox) used hit and run to harass British forces and create chaos. Today we call those tactics covert.


For more than 240 years Americans have fought and died to protect the Constitution of the United States and to provide safety and security of American families at home and abroad. Men and women have fought and died to protect the rights of Americans to exercise those rights. We call that patriotism and those who stand up to defend us we call patriots.


What we are seeing happening in cities across the nation in 2020 is neither patriotism nor patriotic. There has been an undercurrent of discord and discontent festering for several years in various cities across the nation. Like a powderkeg that could go off with the tiniest spark the stage was set in Portland Oregon. Anarchists began “testing the waters” as a trial run waiting for that spark.


There were clear signs of their intent as they moved about openly and freely without interference as the mayor condoned their activities and actions by standing down law enforcement when their unlawful actions threatened and assaults on innocent civilians were allowed.


George Floyd became that spark. The powderkeg exploded and America saw the coordinated efforts of an organized entity showed up on the streets of Minneapolis Minnesota in force, overtaking and hijacking what began as a peaceful protest of Police violence turned into the death of a black man in police custody which turned into a full fledge riot. Portions of the city were engulfed in vandalism, lootings, burnings, assaults and murder in the name of Black Lives Matter.


Seizing the opportunity to exploit this senseless act of violence, operatives in a number of cities began their reign of terror with “protests of police violence” in the name of Black Lives Matter with domestic terrorist groups like Antifa and others who began creating Autonomous Zones like CHAZ later called CHOP in Seattle Washington where police were forbidden to enter and residence and shop owners were terrorized and exhorted for money and shops vandalized, looted and burned. The mayor of Seattle called them kids exercising their rights to free speech.


Soon other cities began to see “protest marches” in the name of Black Lives Matter that were neither protest nor peaceful. Vandalism, rioting, looting, burning with assaults and murder happening in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Minnesota, Texas, Maryland, New York and a host of other places where Democratic Party leadership not only condoned the violence but enabled it by issuing stand down orders for state and local LEOs.


Many citizens say it’s clearly a case of exercising our 1st Amendment rights to free speech and right to peaceful assembly which are protected under the Constitution.


What is not protected by the Constitution is the “right” to commit violence.

A bank robber has the right to make an unlawful withdrawal.

An illegal alien has the “right” to unlawful entry into the US.

A woman or her doctor has the “right” to murder a baby in the womb.

Anyone has the “right” to disregard or willfully disobey any law of the US.

Non-citizens including illegals have the “right” to vote in an election.

LEOs do not have the “right” to arrest lawbreakers.

This list could go on and on.


Coming out of the chaos has been calls from the far left to defund and disband the police. It sounds crazy yet many who are uneducated, illiterate or simply misinformed think that is a great idea. Even elected officials are calling for it, while many are protected by LEOs. They call for gun control (taking away arms from lawful gun owners) while being protected by licensed officers and in some cases are seemingly doing nothing about getting unlawful guns out of the hands of criminals.


More recently Americans decided to conduct “Stand for the Blue” rallies in Denver, New York City and other places to show their support for LEOs. Adhering to rules covering the issuance of local permits several of these rallies were met with resistance from Democratic mayors who ordered LEOs to stand down and not participate (even while off duty) under threats of employment, career and family) while local offshoots of Black Lives Matter, Antifa and others crashed theses rallies causing bodily injury to LEOs and supporters.


In the case of New York City a prominent singer and legislator were scheduled as part of a Back the Blue rally. When it was announced they would be participating in the rally, the governor banned both from attending the rally, and ordered the health department to meet them at the airport and place them in 14-day COVID-19 quarantine. State police scheduled to protect the legislator were told they could not under threat of being fired. The rally was subsequently cancelled.


So tell me what part of this COVID-19 “pandemic”, the Black Lives Matter fixation by America’s Democratic Party politicians and the continual shut down of America is NOT politically motivated as we are now 99 days before the November 3rd, 2020 Presidential Election?


Don’t forget the Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently made a public statement that “Trump would not be president in 2021 – One way or another”!


National news media outlets parrot the same line when it comes to the chaos being brought to American cities “These peaceful protestors are being assaulted by Trumps Stormtroopers”. Democratic governors have petitioned the White House to prevent a Federal Taskforce from coming to their cities.


Democratic politicians are doing everything wrong for American citizens in their districts, cities and states. They are behind ending public safety, yet continually asking for more federal funds to rebuild cities that they have failed to protect. If there are no police, can American’s depend upon the politicians to answer 911 when they call?


Don’t tell me we are not in a war. It is a very Uncivil War and the anarchists are using street rules “there are no rules”. They are playing for all the marbles. Americans tend to follow the rule of law which began with the Constitution, based on God’s biblical standards while our nation is being played for very high stakes. Congressional Democratics are in a panic as they do not care what happens to our nation.  Their only concern is that President Trump not be re-elected even if it causes the nation to collapse.


I stand with President Trump in backing the men and women in blue as we will stop the violence and make American great once again. Remember it’s for all the marbles! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
