The Demo-goddess of the House

The Demo-goddess of the House

I suspect many are satisfied with the performance of the current Speaker of the House but I am not. I have watched as the history making first woman to be elected by her peers became Speaker. So much has transpired since that fateful day in 2007.

Under her speakership:

  • She ordered the House chamber doors locked with Democrats inside and Republicans outside during the voting on the Affordable Care Act (we must pass it to know what it says).
  • She re-introduced the attitude and dress from the ladies of the KKK as if that was a notable accomplishment.
  • Before being once again voted Speaker she joined Senate Minority Leader Schumer in double-teaming President Trump (you don’t know the importance I bring to this meeting – she said in 2017).
  • She has taken her House delegation to mainland China pre-CCP Virus.
  • She then began a campaign of open resistance of the Executive Office and Initiated Impeachment proceedings based on manufactured charges.
  • She openly tore up her copy of the 2020 State of the Union on the House floor while sitting behind President Trump, in full view of the audience and on national television.
  • She has declared on national television that “he won’t be president in 2021 – one way or another”.
  • She has taken the House to an all-time low by banning gender specific language in the newly released House Rules for the 117th Congress.

In my humble opinion this geriatric legislator has become drunk on the thought of her own power and self-importance. She is the poster-child of a dictatorial tyrant. I would not be surprised should her picture appear on a Wikipedia page for Tyrant. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

This is the Eleventh Hour

1/4/2021

This is the Eleventh Hour

Let me be clear America is in a fight for survival. The fraudulent left has done everything possible to push this hoax on the country. It’s been 4 long years of vicious attacks against 1 man determined to stand up to their lies. Many have bought the lies hook, line and sinker.

At every turn from the Russian’s collusion hoax, the Ukrainian hoax, overlooking the Hunter Biden connection to pay for play, China’s using the office of the VP under Obama for Joe Biden financial gain and the never before Chinese CCP virus scam encompassing the entire globe. There was the Impeachment of President Trump to make a statement that the Democratic led House can and will do everything in their power to stop this president. The CCP virus hoax is but one of the latest attempts to keep Americans isolated at home regardless the cost of non-essential small businesses and family survival. The General Election of 2020 saw the introduction of manipulated software, electronic ballot stuffing, mail in ballots in unheard of quantities (more votes cast than were issued), while declaring a Biden win even before the election process had been completed, yet we heard the incessant cry of “no fraud here” as it became lost in the chaos of a very real democratic fraud scheme that included foreign interference by the Chinese CCP and others with the goal of preventing the re-election of President Trump. Massive pressure has been brought to bear on both the Senate and the House demanding that there be no contesting of the Electoral College votes. I dare say unheard of in the history of American politics. There have been unconstitutional calls to delay the January 6th Joint Session of Congress where the EC votes will be revealed, recorded, approved or rejected. It has been said that President Trump cannot use military troops during the remaining election process, yet the governor of Washington D.C. can call up the National Guard against Trump supporters who rally in support of the President of the United States.

It has been during the darkest days in American history that when all hope appears lost that Christians around the nation and the world take a knee in reverence to Almighty God and pray for safety, strength and guidance for our nation, our president and our people.

As I have said all along it’s not over until God say’s it’s over. As storm clouds brew all around and over this nation we must be determined in our weakness to allow the strength of God to carry us through. As it has been said, “In America we do not worship government or a man, but Almighty God” – President Trump (loosely paraphrased). – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Don’t Let The Battle Get Inside You

1/4/2021

Don’t Let The Battle Get Inside You

The past few weeks I’ve witnessed God speaking to and through fellow Christians and the message is basically the same – Wait upon the Lord and wait in his strength not our own. That’s really hard for me because I often feel that the outcome depends upon my understanding and my action.

I learned an object lesson many years ago that neither God nor the devil can enter your life without your invitation. Often it’s a subtle invitation by embracing something we think will be fun like a song, movie or sitting down with someone we just met or a new friend.  Inviting them into your life leaves you open for all kind of things. So when you hear that knocking on your hearts door just be aware of who you opening the door to.

One of my all-time favorites is sung by PETRA. It’s called “The Battle Belongs to the Lord” and I first heard it back in 1990.

The Battle Belongs to the Lord – Petra
Words and music by Jamie Owens-Collins

In heavenly armour we’ll enter the land
The battle belongs to the Lord
No weapon that’s fashioned against us shall stand
The battle belongs to the Lord

We sing glory and honor
Power and strength to the Lord
(repeat)

The power of darkness comes in like a flood
The battle belongs to the Lord
He’s raised up a standard, the power of His blood
The battle belongs to the Lord

When your enemy presses in hard do not fear
The battle belongs to the Lord
Take courage my friend, your redemption is near
The battle belongs to the Lord

It has a very powerful message to the body of Christ that is in sync with Exodus 15:3 “The LORD [is] a man of war: the LORD [is] his name.

Recently as I was scrolling through Facebook I stopped when I read:

“We do not wait for The Lord, we wait in The Lord. When we say we wait for The Lord it implies He is not with us and yet His word has promised us that He will never leave us nor forsake us. So we wait in The Lord. Just like we don’t fight for victory, we fight from victory. We look at it the way we say it. So let’s say it right!!!” – David Hayner 12/29/20 (Pastor New Life Church of God in Herkimer, New York).

God wants our undivided attention in the year 2021:

“God asked me this question. Do you know why it’s so hard for most Christians to wait for me? Because most are so use to living and making everyday decisions on their own without asking me, much less waiting for my answer. Ask God, include God, and wait on God about every aspect of your life. Ask, Seek, Knock, and Wait in God for God’s answer.” – David Hayner 1/1/21

I’ve been meditating on these messages as well as bible passages and this morning when I read this from a friend:

“This is what happened to me as I sat down to read and pray this morning. The first part is a simple prayer I prayed and then what I heard in my spirit. I am going to put it out just as it came to me. I hope it blesses you.

Lord Jesus I need you so much right now. My heart is full of noise and anxiety right now.

“Son, don’t let the battle get into you. I am with you. Be strong and of good courage. Nothing that is going on in your life and in the world changes who I am and who I am in you.

While I was on the earth I never let the battle get into Me. The enemy tried hard to get Me to panic and to take matters into My own hands. So I understand how you are feeling right now.

There is more to Me than you realize. I maintained My relationship with My Father so that I could accomplish His will. All the things that you read about in Scripture that speak of how I spent time in prayer and how I said I only say and do what I see and hear the Father saying and doing kept the battle out of Me. It kept Me focused and full of joy because I knew the Father’s perfect will would be accomplished through My submission to Him.

You are no different. The same peace, power and purpose I had, you also have. Just abide in Me. I am doing things that if they were told to you, you would not believe. They would seem so grand so amazing and beyond your wildest imaginations. I have a plan and my plans always come to pass. Be strong and of good courage.”” – John T. Worm, Colorado Springs

With all the fluff going on around us it’s easy to get caught up in it and miss what God wants to US to do and we forget that we are not dealing with flesh and blood.

Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].”

Our nation has become so wrapped up in self and selfish desires enough so that we make our selfish demands to the God who created us and say he is wrong.

Romans 9:20 “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?”

By no means do I have the answers in life, but I know who does.

The year 2021 is a year of focusing outside ourselves. Quit looking and saying I or Me, when you pray ask God how I can help others so that they might see God, not me.  

Those several years ago I heard a song by Bob Bennet “Carpenter God Bad” and I urge you to listen. The words ought to make you reflect deep within your soul.

CARPENTER GONE BAD?
Bob Bennett

There’s a man down in the street
Says he’s the Messiah
Telling people he is the Chosen One
Says that He is in the Father
And the Father’s in the Son

Empty nets made full of fish
And blind eyes that see
Didn’t he used to work with wood in Galilee?
Now he’s in the synagogue
Telling people they are wrong
To live as whitewashed tombs
Full of dead men’s bones

Some say he is the Son of God
Others laugh and call him mad
Well do you think he’s who they say he is
Or just a carpenter gone bad?

People talking about him wherever I go
They say he teaches with authority
Is there something I don’t know?
The say it is his fervent prayer
That we stay in the Father’s care
And believe that he is the Word made man

Some say he is the Son of God
Others laugh and call him mad
Well do you think he’s who he says he is
Or just a carpenter gone bad?

I’m not some super religious freak or a self-righteous “look at me” kind of guy. I’m simply someone who knows the master. I ask for his guidance as I hang on to this little ball hurdling through the galaxy until the day that Jesus comes back again or he takes me home. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

IN YOUR FACE

1/4/2021

In Your Face

What would you think if I wore a facemask with the words WHITE LIVES MATTER              ? Would you be offended, intimidated or simply shrug it off by saying, “Oh that’s nice”? Or would anyone even notice?

I bring that up because of a recent trip to a local military exchange facility. I was walking through the store looking for my wife when suddenly a very large black man came into the store wearing a BLACK LIVES MATTER facemask and nobody seemed to take notice. I wouldn’t have noticed either except he crossed just in front of me and that got me to thinking.

I’ve been told that thinking can get you into trouble faster than a pileup on I-25.

The entire year of 2020 was non-stop, in-your-face BLACK LIVES MATTER activism that drew attention to what some people wanted to get across that the lives of blacks in America matter and I get that. The problem wasn’t or isn’t that black lives don’t matter. Of course they do, ALL LIVES MATTER, just not to criminals who are often black, and some police officers who probably shouldn’t be police officers at all.

Then the hijacking of the BLM movement by the likes of Antifa and others in places like Portland and Seattle took on a whole new meaning as events unfolded in Minneapolis in what seemed to be an unfortunate and overly exploited incident resulting it the death of a black man clearly in police custody.

Bye the end of the year BLM leadership wanted complete separation from Antifa as the escalating and prolonged violence upstaged the intent of the BLM movement in the first place. Yet it seemed that the movement took on a life of its own when mayors began painting BLACK LIVES MATTER on city streets, most prominently in New York City, in front of Trump Towers because it was the President’s. Also the mayor of Washington D.C. painted it on the street not far from the Capitol Building and the White House also a biased attempt to draw attention because of her hatred of President Trump. All the time this was happening Antifa was using BLM as a cover for harassing and conducting violence against Trump supporters with impunity. Yet American’s refused to acknowledge we were and still are in a raging race war across our nation. It is still being fueled by the stigma of the BLM movement where the arm of Antifa incites violence even into 2021.

Racial hatred leads to violence. We’ve seen it in the political correctness of the WOKE movement as well where removing history is supposed to make things better? We sanction removing “objectionable” statues, renaming offensive names on streets, cities and military bases because someone said they were offensive – and the race war continues as Congress declares gender words and terms are also offensive and banned. Once you give someone an inch, the want to take a mile.

How do we stop this nonsense? We start by not allowing this to continue. We stop dividing up our nation by race, color, creed or ethnicity. Our nation was founded on freedom to live in peace while striving for the American dream. If America is a boat, we’re all in it together – so act like it.

Do not accept this division by skin color. There are cable network programs aimed directly at the black community and there are others for Spanish speakers, but when in your face racism is accepted as the new normal we have let it go too far. Stop the hyphenation of Americans and treat everyone as you wish to be treated. Love you neighbor as we love our selves as it is written in the good book. Love you enemies while you keep them at arm’s length, until they have become your friends. We are all in this human race to the finish and I guarantee that you will not get out alive. Maybe we need to wear a facemask or covering that declares WE ALL MATTER! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

My Thoughts on Overturning the 2020 Election

The Electoral College: A 2020 Presidential Election Timeline

1-3-2021

My thoughts On Overturning The 2020 Election

Congressional Democrats as well as some Republicans want us to believe that the constitutional effort of contesting the 2020 presidential election has somehow morphed into overturning the will of the people. Clearly this is not the case at all.

When a state, any state, conducts an election there are certain rules and deadlines that must be adhered to. There can be no deviation to the rules and/or dates unless it is done by the state legislature. There are federal guidelines as to how ballots are handled, counted and preserved. State election officials are required to oversee the election in every county polling place insuring that state and federal guidelines are being followed. Any interference (inside or outside) the state and county election precincts must not be ignored with officials looking the other way when obvious wrongdoing has been perceived to have occurred. So someone working at a polling site or an election ballot processing center cannot arbitrarily make changes or marks on a ballot, not even to “fix” and obvious error made by the voter. Neither can a worker insert unauthorized or subsequently “found” ballots into a ballot processing machine. A worker may not alter or “adjust” software or processing equipment or require vetted and mandated and authorized ballot monitors to leave the processing center while workers continue processing ballots. When any of the above abnormalities have been deemed to occur it is everyone’s responsibility to report the suspected wrongdoing to a supervisor and ultimately to the state election official who is normally the Secretary of State and then to the Governor. That’s it in a nutshell.

The Electoral College timeline is governed by the U.S. Code at 3 U.S.C. §§1-18, the Twelfth and Twentieth Amendments to the Constitution, and state laws and political party rules.

November 3rd is Election Day with polls closing at 8:00 pm and once the ballots of the popular vote have been submitted and tabulated (November 4th – December 14th). The Governors are required to sign a Certificate of Ascertainment, filed with the Archivist and provided to the Electors by December 14th.

December 8th is designated the “Safe Harbor” Deadline where Governors of contested elections submit a certificate of determination to the Archivist.

A candidate may then choose to contest the results of an election in any or all of the affected states. In that case there are legal procedures to take when an election is contested. Some procedures may entail state legislatures or through the courts.

The next phase is the Electoral College and the voting of the designated electors. Those votes happen on a designated date and are then sealed at the state and delivered to the House of Representatives by another designated date where they will remain until  the date they are unsealed in a joint session of Congress.

December 14th is the day the Electors Vote IN THEIR STATES. The votes are then certified with Certifications of Ascertainment sent to the required parties by December 23rd. There are procedures should this deadline not be met.

January 6th is when a Joint Session of Congress meets to count the Electoral Votes and declare election results transmitting them to the Vice President. Members may object from any individual state AS THEY ARE ANNOUNCED. Objections must be made in writing by one Member of the Senate and House of Representatives. The joint session recesses and the two houses separate and debate for a maximum of two hours. The two houses then vote separately to accept or reject the objection. They then reassemble in joint session and announce their respective votes. An objection to a state’s electoral vote must be approved by both houses in order for any contested votes to be excluded.

January 20th is the date set for the Inauguration of the President and Vice President. The Vice President takes the oath first, followed at noon by the President.

 For additional information on the Electoral College, see CRS Report RL32611, The Electoral College: How It Works in Contemporary Presidential Elections, by Thomas H. Neale. (Updated October 22, 2020)

It is important to note that until the Joint Session of Congress has met on January 6th and approved the EC votes, there is no president-elect, until announced by the Vice President of the United States.

We have witnessed the banty-rooster posturing and blatant in-your-face intimidation demanding that there was no election fraud so we must just get over it. Let me tell you that the biggest election fraud in American history has been “running a game” on the American people.

It must be addressed and those responsible MUST be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law. As I have already said – it is the responsibility of EVERY AMERICAN to contest election fraud and underhanded dirty dealings. Complacency and ignorance is no excuse. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

I Will Not Be Woke

1-2-2021

I Will Not Be Woke

I decided that in this New Year I would focus on issues that I feel are important. Although the primary issue of 2020 Election Fraud is still a huge concern it will be settled for all to see next week. So let’s look at the political correct “WOKENESS IN AMERICA”. There are those who have decided to make themselves the WOKE POLICE and in doing so make it their responsibility force the entire nation to adhere to their standard while refusing to abide by OURS. I for one will not be “Woke”.

This Joel Abbott article hits it right on the head as it describes the lengths to which the Democratic-led House of the new 117th Congress will go to make everything inclusive to everyone by creating the “Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth Committee” to rid family relationship language in House rules to become gender neutral.

“Father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, grandson, or granddaughter” will no longer be acceptable terms to be used in the House.

Don’t despair totally because these are terms and words that will be allowed:

“Parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild”

I won’t go on and on about how ridiculous this is going to look, sound or be in actuality but I think I’ll keep Father, Mother, Sister, Brother and all my In-laws intact as is thank you very much. I do not answer to the term parents-sibling, sibling or sibling’s child. You are my kin, next-of-kin or maybe my passport holder and that means you are family – every single one of you (whether you like it or not).

I could very well have flashbacks of going through my senior year at KHS with my uncle Gary and having everyone try to tell me he was my cousin. Well his mom was my grandmother and that didn’t make me call him my parent’s sibling and it still won’t! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

God Uses People

1-1-2021

God Uses People

I hear folks saying that God couldn’t use Trump because of his background or lifestyle or because of the things he has done in the past. Well there is only one who walked the earth without sin – Jesus.

Let’s look back at the only man made in the perfect likeness of God was Adam. Adam walked in the garden and talked with God daily. He was the first human and he had nothing to do except name the animals that God created because he felt Adam needed a helper and there was no sin. As Adam slept God took a rib and created woman. Adam called her Eve and together they walked and talked with God daily. Life was simple, eat, sleep and walk with God. There was no sin to separate them from God. God did tell them not to eat from the tree of knowledge or the tree of life. That was it. When the serpent entered the garden he first tempted Eve to eat from the fruit of the tree of knowledge telling her she would not surely die, but would become like God. Eve ate the fruit and gave Adam who ate also. It was then that when they heard God coming they hid themselves because they were naked and their sin separated them from God. God asked why they were hiding. They said they were naked and afraid. God asked who told them they were naked. Adam said it was the woman you gave me. Eve said it was the serpent who told me I would not surely die. And the serpent said, who me?

An over simplification – maybe, but we can see that from the beginning there have been ordinary men whom God uses to do extra-ordinary things throughout history.

Noah was an old man when God said build a boat. He did while his neighbors mocked and scoffed at him because they did not see a need for a boat, there was even no water nearby. After the animals came in and God sealed the door shut. It began to rain and they must have sensed that it was better to be in the boat, but they could not get inside.

Moses was an old man when God gave him the stone tablets – The 10 Commandments. Maybe there were more but one stone was dropped and shattered. Who is to know if there were more instructions from God for mankind?

Abraham was an old man and Sarah was an old woman with no children when God promised him so many descendants they could not be counted. Abraham believed God and his name became Israel.

God always keeps his promises. After the flood God gave us a rainbow to remind us that he would never again flood the earth.

Over time there have been many who conquered the known world in the name of God. Who is to say that they were instructed by God to do so? I think rather that God used ungodly men for his purposes.

As the world became populated there were missionaries and preachers who traveled the highways and byways sharing the good news of Jesus who is the Christ, the only begotten son of God, who lived without sin, died on the cross at Calvary, was buried in a tomb and rose again on the third day to take away the sins of the entire world. They preached that Jesus would come again one day and we must be ready and alert.

I believe that God tugged at the heartstrings of many to come to this land we call home – America. They came on ships and on foot to settle in a land where they could worship God without interference. There were many ordinary men and women who settled this land, and fought for the cause of freedom. We only hear of a few of those who came before us. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and so many others chosen to make an impact on our nation and the world around us, so why not Donald Trump?

I can tell you that God is fully in control and he places rulers and leaders in positions of authority to accomplish HIS plan that will bring Glory and Honor to him alone. I have watched as one man became obedient when God called his name. He wasn’t a Billy Graham or the religious-type and he knew of God, like so many today. Yet when he was called he said Yes Lord (not necessarily with those words).

What I have seen over the past 4 years confirms in my spirit that this man is the perfect man for the job God has called him to do. Our nation has risen to the point that corruption on many levels could not be stopped, controlled or turned off unless it was by Almighty God, using a man whom many have deemed unqualified and unsuited.

I am reminded of the young boy David who faced and slew the giant with a slingshot and a single stone, yet it was God who guided the stone on target and killed Goliath. When God calls, he always prepares the way and he has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. In fact being in the perfect will of God is the safest place to be.

I believe that God has watched as wickedness and unrighteousness have increased in America and around the world. He has heard our cries, our prayers and chosen to act as he has always done before taking the unknown and undesirable human beings to accomplish his purpose so that everyone knows that it was God, not man who receives the glory. So when you mock and bash God’s anointed you are really rebelling against Almighty God and is simply not advisable. There will come a time when God may reveal his plan, but in the meantime maybe we should be calling out to God on our knees and asking for his guidance in these trying times. 2020 has changed the world we live in such a way that it may never revert back to the pre-2020 normal, much as 2001 was changed on 9/11. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Putting COVID in the Rearview Mirror

12-31-2020

Putting COVID in the Rearview Mirror

Like you I’d like to put this Covid pandemic behind me and in fact to do that maybe we should put it into a different kind of perspective? I have a hard time with people telling me that COVID is the deadly disaster that it has become.

Most of what I’m saying is not new. There are hundreds of biological laboratories here in the United States and they have very specific functions in the world of virology. Some study toxins, others vaccines and some may even be searching for the cure of cancer and/or many other diseases.

Do you know why doctors and nurses are always changing their gloves, gowns and masks after attending patients in a hospital setting? Is it to make the patient feel better? Not hardly! It is to prevent or control the spread of germs from one patient to another.

Do you know why Level 4 Biochemical Laboratories have an isolation decontamination room with airlock doors and possibly separate purified oxygen generator systems? Or why someone coming in must strip outside clothing and change into clean gowns that resemble space suits worn by astronauts? Or why when they leave the lab, they must go through the process to include leaving the contaminated clothing, showering and changing into street clothes before exiting the decontamination room? Like something out of a movie right? Well it too is to prevent the spread of viruses.

Military personnel are familiar with the 5 levels of MOPP.  (Military Operational Personal Protective) gear that give differing levels of protection for Nuclear, Biological or Chemical (NBC) attacks.

MOPP0.
IPE is issued to and inspected by the individual and prepared for use. Personnel carry their protective
masks with their LCE. The standard issue overgarment and other IPE are carried or are readily available. To be considered readily available, equipment must be carried by each individual, stored within arm’s
reach, or be available within 5 minutes; for example, within the work area, vehicle, or fighting position. Units in MOPP0 are highly vulnerable to persistent agent attacks and will automatically upgrade to MOPP1 when they determine or are notified that persistent NBC weapons have been used or that the
threat exists for NBC weapons use. The primary use for MOPP0 is during periods of increased alert when an enemy has a CB employment capability, but there is no indication of use in the immediate future. MOPP0 is not applicable to forces afloat.

MOPP1.
When directed to MOPP1, personnel immediately don the overgarment. In hot weather, the overgarment jacket can be left open and the overgarment can be worn directly over underwear
and other IPE making up the individual MOPP gear (e.g., footwear covers, mask, and gloves are readily
available or carried). M8 or M9 paper is attached to the overgarment, (carry the NAAK and decontamination kit or keep them at hand). MOPP1 provides a great deal of protection against persistent agents. The primary use for MOPP1 is when a CB attack in theater is possible.
Personnel must remove contact lenses and wear protective mask optical inserts. Leaders also monitor
hydration levels. For forces afloat, MOPP1 means IPE is available


MOPP2.
Personnel wear and/or put on their footwear covers, overgarment, and the protective helmet cover. As with MOPP1, the overgarment jacket may be left open, but trousers remain closed. The mask with mask carrier and gloves are carried. The primary use for MOPP2 is when a CB attack in theater is possible. Personnel carry M8 and M9 paper, nerve agent antidotes, and decontamination kits or keep them at hand. Personnel wear the protective mask optical inserts and maintain hydration levels. For forces afloat, MOPP2 means that personnel begin carrying masks.


MOPP3.
Personnel wear the overgarment, footwear covers, protective mask, and protective helmet cover. Again,
flexibility is built into the system to allow for personnel relief at MOPP3, particularly in hot weather.
Personnel can open the overgarment jacket and roll the protective mask hood for ventilation, but the
trousers remain closed. The protective gloves are carried. The primary use of MOPP3 is for personnel operating inside areas where a chemical-agent contact hazard does not exist. MOPP3 is not appropriate if a contact hazard is present. At MOPP3, forces afloat don protective suits and boots and activate intermittent countermeasure washdown.


MOPP4.
Personnel completely encapsulate themselves by closing their overgarments, adjusting all drawstrings to minimize the likelihood of any openings, and putting on their protective gloves. MOPP4 is used when the highest degree of protection is required, or if CB agents are present but the actual hazard is not determined. As with every other MOPP level, flexibility is built into the system to provide relief to the individual. Once the hazard is identified and risk assessment measures are employed, the overgarment may be left open.


Note: During coalition operations, US forces familiarize themselves with the protection levels used by
personnel from other nations.

*Taken directly from the Army Study Guide.

I wouldn’t expect everyone to understand the military terms or abbreviations used in the study guide, however I have a warm fuzzy reassurance to know that in the case of a NBC attack there are procedures in place, designated protective clothing and training that can insure maximum survival of myself and that of my soldiers.

So my military training wants to know how wearing a paper mask or rubber gloves will protect me while driving in a car by myself, or walking in the mountains by myself, or outdoor seating under canvas flaps while the restaurants indoor seating area is closed due to the virus – how is that preventing or controlling the spread?

Walk outside a hospital emergency room, a big box store, a mall or even a church and while walking to the parking area and you may have to step on or over discarded paper masks. Why are there not receptacles or bins marked “Biological Hazard – place discarded masks here?” If we are so caught up in wearing masks to protect us, why not do it right?

If the Covid virus is a real virus, causing real damage and deaths why is the entire world not at MOPP4 already? Why are we not encapsulating ourselves as if we were exiting a space craft to walk on the moon?

So think back one year ago to December 2019 when the virus was first discovered coming from Wuhan, China. Why did China cordon off Wuhan stopping all modes of transportation into their mainland? Why did they let Chinese nationals working at Chinese factories in northern Italy and elsewhere continue departing Wuhan for these foreign destinations? Think of the obvious? Was this a coordinated biological attack on the world by the Chinese Communist Party’s military biological scientists?

We have been conditioned over the past 12 months to think that the spreading of this virus is entirely our fault. We have also been sold on the idea that there is no antidote. Our only hope, we are told is to wait on a vaccine – wear a mask, social distance and self-isolate because our businesses, our livelihoods and our way of life have been declared non-essential. In fact Congress has recently conducted an open discussion on the affordability of abortion.

I have said, and still say the way to handle Covid is to use common sense. Stay away from sick people until they get well. Take appropriate measures when going out in public. If going into a store it may be required to wear a mask (but think of using that mask for a full day – the amount of differing germs, viruses or other toxins) and common sense tells me that I’m better off NOT wearing a mask. It has nothing to do with spreading the virus or not being considerate of others either.

We have had other viruses that required masking for a time, but not indefinitely.

We used to use soap and water with mops to decontaminate equipment and personnel after an atomic bomb explosion. How well did that work?

Every living being fights to survive (fight or flight). So do I trust medical “experts” who have thus far not been entirely truthful with the public? Do I think this was an orchestrated and deliberate attack on modern civilization? YES!

Could this be the “mark of the beast” described in the Book of Revelations? Quite possibly as overseas travel has already been affected and many countries refuse entry unless you can show proof that you don’t have the virus: Health Certificate, Vaccine Certificate, and/or Certification of Non-Infection? What’s next?

So when I was asked recently now that vaccines have become available will I go down and take one. My reply was that if there is concrete proof in any way shape or form that Bill Gates was involved in the process of creating the vaccine my answer is a resounding NO! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Not the Top Just the Big Wheel

Not the Top just the Big Wheel

You had to be there to understand but back in the day you could call the First Sergeant just about anything except “Top” or “Sir”. One might get you on extra duty while the other would get you a reprimand or gentle reminder “Lieutenant I call you Sir!” I was taught early on that the first name of an officer was “Sir”.

In an army transportation company the First Sergeant (1SG) was the ranking enlisted soldier who advised the company commander, and ran the company but it was the Truckmaster who ran motor pool operations and received all tasking from battalion and higher headquarters and issued commitments to the line platoon sergeants who then assigned drivers and vehicles.

I spent my entire career in army transportation in Southeast Asia and Panama and stateside during the Vietnam War. Sometimes my assignments were in the support platoon of a combat arms unit, occasionally I went into the Army Transportation Office as supervisor of the Household Goods section or at one time as a Military Customs Inspector. Once I became an army recruiter, then an instructor at an army service school where we trained drivers of various branches of the DOD.

I have flown on various types of Army, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force aircraft and have rode the rails on a military train returning from a training exercise and I have gone on friends and family cruises on USN and JSDF vessels. Each reminds me the virtues of having my feet planted firmly behind the steering wheel of an army VIP sedan, bus or tractor trailer. The real highlight of my career was becoming the “big wheel” – Truckmaster, first in an army line haul petroleum transport company at Fort Carson, Colorado, and then my final assignment was as the Truckmaster of the Army Transportation Motor Pool at Yokohama’s North Dock in Japan.

There were times as Truckmaster my unit was alerted for deployment into a hostile combat zone. That entailed identifying serviceable equipment to be deployed and coordinating with the First Sergeant about company assets being deployed.

Other times it was on a Corp level training exercise in Japan where aircraft, bus and passenger traffic had to be coordinated at the training site for redeployment back to their home stations. Sometimes it meant getting behind the wheel of a transport van, while other times it meant gathering necessary assets to make the deadline. Regardless of the assignment I was always a military trucker and forever more – I am the real Truckmaster!

Simple Mathematics Even Liberals Should Understand

Simple Mathematics Even Liberals Should Understand

I should have titled this RTM as How to Understand Liberal logic, but that seems to be a lost cause all by itself, yet often their answers need to be followed through to a logical conclusion. A recent comment asked “What do you do with ALL of the down ballot GOPErs who got elected on those same ballots?? Throw them out??” I guess in his own way these were probably the only really good questions that came out of his rant.

So let’s just say that there are approximately 331,828,037 citizens in the US as of the most recent census. Out of that there are 235M eligible voters in the US. Some voters are Democrats, Republicans, Independents or Unaffiliated and we must not forget those who are Ineligible.

Next we must look at how many in person, absentee or mail in ballots were cast on November 3rd (Election Day) as early reports indicated that 69M votes were cast? Then how many ballots were counted after Election Day? Just to be fair how many ballots were counted or scanned more than once?

Next how many votes for Trump?

How many votes for Biden?

It seems preposterous that on November 3rd local state Governors and both state and US Congress members could be declared on time, yet no declaration of a winner for POTUS and VP and as the wrangling continued so did the increase in number of ballots counted? I don’t even think that there is any legitimate way to determine those numbers at this time, unless a real audit of every ballot in every state could be done.

331,828,037 – US Population

235,000,000 – Eligible Voters

  69,000,000 – Votes Cast in 2020

  • Democratic votes cast
  • Republican votes cast
  • Independent votes cast
  • Unaffiliated votes cast
  • Ineligible votes cast
  • Trump votes
  • Biden votes

So how does one candidate claim to be the president-elect prior to January 6th when a joint session of Congress will unseal, read, approve or disapprove each Electoral vote before announcing the president-elect?

And how does the President of the United States become simply “candidate”?

How does the Democratic Congress get away with ignoring the President while holding one of their alumni up as the shining example for all to follow before January 20th when the inauguration and swearing in of the President of the United States?

More importantly how does someone holding a non-office get away with demanding anything from the one holding the office of President of the United States?

I don’t care if you like or dislike any or both candidates for the office of President of the United States, but to buy into this fallacy is simply absurd. There can only be one president at a time. That is why one leaves public office and public life so as not to interfere in the affairs of state or the administration of the Executive Branch.

So why is it that we hear more from POTUS 44 during the campaign than we did over his 8 years in office? And why did it take so long for Mr. Obama to endorse Mr. Biden for the office he so carefully kept him away from during his 2 terms in office? Maybe an even bigger question was why did former Secretary Hillary Clinton not step in at an appropriate time and challenge her 2016 opponent to secure the notoriety of the first woman to become President of the United States? After all she won the popular vote, right? Maybe it was the same way that the 2020 popular vote?

I don’t have all the answers for many of the questions being asked today. I’m not a nuclear physicist, a medical doctor, an astronaut or a brain surgeon. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
