Working My VA Claim of Exposure to Herbicides in Thailand


Working MY VA Claim of Exposure to Herbicides in Thailand

I retired from 22 years active duty on 31 December 1990 and had a heart attack on 28 August 1998.

The VA announced that herbicides had been used in Thailand during the Vietnam War and recognized Ischemic Heart Disease as resulting from exposure to herbicides.

That’s when I filed my first AO claim online in September 2008 listing 25 ailments/injuries I had been treated for on active duty and IHD due to herbicide exposure during my tour in Thailand. I checked the box “have you been exposed to herbicides” it wanted to know where and when I was stationed in Vietnam. I used the entire block stating I was exposed in Thailand 1968 – 1970. The online form populated each listed item as coming from AO.

 My first C & P Exam was at Fitzsimmons VA Hospital in Denver. The doctor asked why I waited so long to file a claim for heart disease. I told him that I because was still working and there were so many veterans who needed to be treated I didn’t want to get in their way. I was then prodded and tested and in the end every item on my claim except one was denied because I hadn’t been assigned to Vietnam.

The one item approved as service connected was a procedure done at the Boise VA hospital a few weeks after leaving active duty in during my break in service in 1970 – 1971 that left scars that are unless painful they are rated at 0%. For a long time I didn’t even know or realize I was service connected or had a 0% rating, until I was invited to join the DAV in 2018 or 2019.

My problem after each denial letter was that I was so hopping mad that I could not even read through the entire letter. Later I would appeal the decision and submit new or relative information and it too would be denied as not being new or relative and once again I was too mad to read the denial letter.

At one point I asked a VA Certified Claims Agent to look at my appeal before I sent it back to the VA. He did and said as it was written I would never get it approved. I couldn’t understand why he would say that and once again I was pretty angry.

Someone online said to request my C-File from the VA. I didn’t even know what a C-File was, but I requested my VA Claims File several times but it never came until after I had contacted my congressman and his office received some documents from the VA. I contacted him again and got a few more documents.

When my C-File came it was in DVD format. Nobody had said what to do with the C-File after it arrived.

My C-File contained 176 pdf documents so I figured I would just print those 176 pages and go from there. What I hadn’t counted on was that each pdf document was either a single page or multiple page files. I ended up printing enough reams of paper to fill up an entire file cabinet of just over 1,000 pages. Not to mention the amount of ink cartridges I used.

It was quite a while before I began delving into the mess so I could organize the paper file by its corresponding number on the DVD. The pages and information were random, nothing was chronological or in date order and at first it was quite overwhelming.

Then I began reading each document for date of entry and for content. What I found was surprising as some info didn’t even pertain to me, but it was included in my C-File. I identified those documents and submitted a request for them to be removed from my C-File.

Then I paid attention to any medical sick call or treatment records of my time in service in Thailand because of the VA’s perimeter rule for Thailand Veterans I looked for records of treatment at bases I had not been assigned to, but rather was TDY while on convoys. This was documented proof that I had been seen and treated on a number of RTAFBs as an army truck driver and that I had to have crossed the perimeter to get to the aid station or clinic.

Additionally what I found in my C-File were VA educational and home loan documents and what I thought was everything I’d ever done with the VA (but I was wrong).

Over the course of several years and undergoing two separate C&P exams I had been granted a rating of 10% for tinnitus and 10% for arthritis of the lower back. There were still at least 20 items from my 2008 claim that had not been acted upon.

I submitted my last claim in 2014 including buddy statements by officers and enlisted from my unit in Thailand with photos and my own statement of being exposed while crossing the perimeter or while living at or near the perimeter in the billets of our camp only 10 feet from the perimeter. My heart doctor filled out a DBQ stating that it was more than likely that my heart disease was aggravated by military service. Yet my claim was denied in 2019 and even the buddy statements were not taken as credible by the judge.

My Certified Claims Agent said my claim should go to the Court of Veterans Appeals Claims (CAVC) in Washington DC and that I should get a VA Certified Attorney to represent me.

I obtained a VA list of Certified Attorneys/Law Firms in my area and sent my denial letter to a couple of agencies, spoke to one representative and the rest did not respond. I even contacted a prominent firm online that has successfully represented Thailand Veterans, but was told they would not take my case to the CAVC.

After I regained my composure I decided to self-represent at the CAVC. The form was easy to download and complete. I went through my denial letter, point by point with documented evidence of my herbicide exposure.

The CAVC required the VA to provide me with an RBA (Record before the Agency) of EVERY DOCUMENT used to make their decision on my claim. The RBA was the only documentation that the CAVC would use in my appeal. I could introduce nothing that wasn’t in the RBA. In time I received first a blank DVD from the VA. I notified them the DVD was blank I promptly received another DVD that contained so much more documentation than my original C-File.

But what I found most pertinent was an error in the denial letter by the VA. They stated that I had not proven how or where I had been exposed to herbicides. That if I had been exposed it was minimal exposure, not like an MP walking the perimeter. Hidden deep in the denial letter were instructions for a C&P examiner which said “the VA conceded this veteran was exposed to herbicides during his tour in Thailand”.

I asked the CAVC judge how it could be that as the duties of an army truck driver after crossing the perimeter that took me to areas on RTAFBs where herbicide spraying had occurred and I was only minimally exposed or not at all, yet instructions to the C&P examiner said otherwise? The CAVC judge sent my claim back to the VBA on remand because of that inconsistency.

I then contacted a VA Certified Claims Agent to handle my appeal on remand. After several months of working my claim as of 29 October 2021 the BVA judge made a ruling to grant my claim for heart disease as service connected. I am now waiting on VA scheduling for a C&P exam to determine level of disability and rating.

There is a new problem we must encounter and that is the fact that the VBA now relies on the GPO to print all letters and documents of ratings, appointments and scheduling. This is just another cog in the mechanism of VA document processing. I’m surprised that there is no process of system duplication whereby the VA cannot electronically transmit letters and documentation directly to veterans using email and posting the same documents on the VA.GOV website where veterans can check the status of their claims and see the latest documents?

In my claim it states my claim has been granted and states to see claim document for more information. The only problem is there is no claim document showing! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

We Were Not Created to Live in Fear


We Were Not Created to Live in Fear

After several conversations with family and friends I feel compelled to tell everyone that God created man in his image and said to go forth and multiply and have dominion over the earth. I find nowhere in scripture where God said to live in a perpetual state of fear.

When God sent angels to deliver messages to men and women in the bible, the first thing they said was “fear not” and Jesus told his disciples to fear not for I am with you always. I’m not a bible scholar so I don’t know how many times in the bible we are told not to be afraid, but it must be a lot.

We are told that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of our creator and contrary to popular belief God has never made a mistake when he created you or me. Whether it is humans or animals God created them male and female, not the 57 + genders that is being forced down our throats.

We must not be dissuaded or allow ourselves to accept the constant fear of dying from a virus that has swept across the globe primarily because of the internet. The SARS virus has been around for a very long time and it always plays out in the end. What is different about the C19 China virus is that man decided to manipulate this virus for nefarious purposes.

What began as experiments in high level labs here in the US a few short years ago was turned loose on the world stage in a place called Wuhan, China. Whether an accident or an act of biological warfare does not matter, but the media enhanced scare around the globe have many fearful of dying from exposure to the virus.

We should never allow ourselves to be cornered into an “isolation box” or separated from family and friends over what might happen. We should use common sense in everything we do and remain committed to living our life the way God intended – giving all honor, glory and power to him.

I have it from a good source that NOBODY is getting out of life alive. Death has a 100% mortality rate and there are no survivors.

Live as if there is no tomorrow.

If you had only one thing to do in this lifetime it would be to humble yourself before God and ask for forgiveness of your sin and ask Jesus to come into your heart.

Then when death comes knocking, eternity is just one last breath away. Heaven or Hell, the choice is yours to make? Don’t let them ask – did he live, but let them shout – HE LIVED FOR JESUS! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

When Oh When Lord?


When Oh When Lord?

I look at the world we live in today in 2021 and it’s safe to say that this world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket (so to speak) or as Hillary put it “A Basket of Deplorables”.

If you start your day watching national news outlets it’s easy to become discouraged or distraught over the state of our nation or the international community as a whole as the China Virus scare continues to intensify. Nations have closed their borders not wanting to spread the virus, but here in the US our president has ordered the southern border opened wide in spite of the virus.

We have nobody but ourselves to blame. When God sent a warrior with the specific purpose to stop evil and become God’s sword against the Spirit of Political Correctness we as a nation laughed. When the flaming arrows and darts were flying, we may have even launched a few ourselves.

Was God surprised?

Not hardly.

Throughout the history of mankind when God spoke to a man, he listened and said “Yes Lord, I am”.

Other men mocked and made fun of or laughed. They thought it was foolishness.

We are not the first nation whose leader has dived headfirst into the role of playing god. Nor will we be the last. We might however be the last generation of Americans who shunned God, questioned his decisions and banished him from the public square. We are now using the China Virus as a means to an end – the end of freedom.

I am reminded of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Old Testament.

Daniel 3: 16-18

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.

17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Individually and collectively we are at a point in our lives where either we trust God or we trust government (man) to rescue us. We have been herded like sheep to the slaughter. Isolate – Social Distance – Mask up – Vaccinate – and wait for the “all clear” to be sounded.

It’s never going to.

Instead of worrying about “what if” we are going to die from the virus, maybe we should be celebrating the abundant life we have been given by Almighty God.

In case you have been paying too much attention to all those commercials about looking and feeling younger, less wrinkles and softer looking skin or the tonic that adds years onto your life (they don’t), I have GREAT NEWS for you.

Nobody gets out of here alive. There are no U-Hauls behind the funeral car. Your bank account doesn’t transfer over to a heavenly savings and loan account. God uses gold to pave the streets of heaven but you may find yourselves among the fire and brimstone crew.

Joshua 24:15

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

I have made up my mind, have you?

I WILL TRUST IN GOD. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Being A Good Religious Person Won’t Get You Into Heaven


Being A Good Religious Person Won’t Get You Into Heaven

Catholics and Christians alike have been dumping on President Biden for his stance on……well everything, including abortion. It was reported that Biden was refused being given the sacrament because of his pro-abortion stance. Most recently Biden met with the Pope at the Vatican. The headlines stated they were the most important Catholics in the world (or something to that effect).

I saw a recent article about a “one world religion” church for Christians, Muslims and other religions being planned or built in Abu Dubai which fits into the One World Government being prepared to control the entire economies of the world.

Well this brings up some very good questions and some very interesting answers.

  • How many “good works” will get you into heaven?
  • Will there be heavenly “subdivisions” (Catholics, Presbyterians, Mormons, Amish, or Pentecostals)?
  • What about other religions or no religious preference?
  • What does the bible say is the way to the father in heaven?

Jesus said that salvation (forgiveness of sin) is a gift from God, lest any man boast.

Ephesians 8-10

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Jesus also said that in his father’s house there are many rooms prepared for his followers.

John 14: 1-4

14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Jesus even said the road to heaven is narrow and few will find it, while the road to the abyss is wide and many will choose it.

Matthew 7:13-14

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

It may surprise you that there will be no Amish, Catholic, Mormon, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Muslim, Islamic, or any religious sections in heaven. It is a fact that the only ones allowed in heaven will be those who have become born again.

John 3:1-8

3 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus[a] by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again[b] he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.[c] Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You[d] must be born again.’ The wind[e] blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

When Jesus commissioned his disciples to go preach the gospel unto the ends of the earth,

Mark 16:15-16

15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

We see evidence that some made it to the Europe, the Far East, Africa and other parts of the world as demonstrated by their belief in doing good deeds or making merit in hopes of a better life after reincarnation. Religion often takes bits and pieces of the bible, mix it with manmade rules and tradition to pass it off as gospel coming straight from God.

The bible tells us not to judge others or we will be judged by the same measure.

Matthew 7:1-2

7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

We are told to discern everything in light of the Word of God.

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

The Ten Commandments are not suggestions should you choose to do them or not. It is impossible to obey God and please man by disobeying even one commandment. God calls it sin and the penalty for sin is death. Without salvation through the blood of Jesus, death is an eternal spiritual death where separation from God has no comparison.

  1. Have no other gods before God
  2. Do not worship things instead of God
  3. Do not take the name of the Lord your God in vain
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, keep it holy
  5. Honor your father and your mother
  6. Do not kill
  7. Do not commit adultery
  8. Do not steal
  9. Do not speak falsely against your neighbor
  10. Do not keep your eyes on anything your neighbor has

Luke 10:27

He (Jesus) answered: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’.”

How can you love your neighbor as yourself when you don’t even like yourself?

Exodus 15:26

He (God) said, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”

In the world we live in there are those who believe that it is their right to do what makes them feel good even when it contradicts the Word of God. When churches stop preaching hell fire and brimstone and use catchy words and phrases that are pleasing to the ears of man, so that none be offended they not only offend God, but become enemies of God.

John 14: 6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Think of a world lost and without anything good. The reign of terror by ISIS, Islamic extremists and even political parties in our own country pale in comparison to what eternity will be like without God, for only God is good – All the time!

The remedy is simple – humble yourself before God, submit to his will for your life. Ask him to forgive your sins. Turn from your wicked ways. Declare Jesus is the Son of God, born of a virgin, died for your sins and raised again on the third day.

Then make a public declaration of faith by becoming baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Find a bible believing church that preaches the bible – cover to cover and ask God to guide and strengthen you as you commit to telling others about God’s saving grace. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Tribute to David Arthur Dick (DAD)


Tribute to David Arthur Dick (DAD)

2-19-47 – 5-4-21

As I write this I’m still in a state of shock yet I feel compelled to tell you about my friend Dave.

I first met Dave Dick in Colorado Springs at the very first 519th Transportation Association, Thailand reunion. He was the guy who for the next several years became our “official” photographer. He would drive or fly out from back east (Ohio & later Pennsylvania), rent a car and go into the mountains taking pictures. Quite often I would get a phone call and we’d talk for an hour or so about the reunion or the next one coming up.

Dave went with the 519th Transportation Battalion from Ft Meade, Maryland to Camp Charn Sinthope in Phanom Sarakham, Thailand in 1966 and became the battalion photographer under LTC Harry Fred Middleton. They had both finished their tours in Thailand before I arrived in 1968, and it was a treat to have Fred as one of our guest speakers that first reunion and his photographer (Dave) doing his thing.

Before he retired from his city job in 2005 Dave told of the time of his horseback riding accident that broke his leg and put him on crutches for a time. He came into the office on crutches and someone yelled, “Look there’s broke Dick” or something to that effect. I smile when I think of that story.

Dave had a special place in my heart as we shared our Thailand and 519th bond. I often joked about bringing the USARSUPTHAI reunion out to his place in Linesville, Pennsylvania so he could show off his extensive gun collection.

Dave’s last reunion was in 2014 where his old running buddies came for their first reunion. The last conversation I had with him earlier this year was when he asked to be taken off our email list which I figured it was for health reasons.

I’ve thought about Dave often these past months, but I never thought I would come across his obituary. It was Dave who brought me a framed picture of the riderless horse from Fred Middleton’s funeral in 2003 at Arlington.

Dave often played taps at Veteran’s funerals. Today I salute our “Tiger”! – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Lovers of Darkness


Lovers of Darkness

When God speaks the devil trembles in fear because he knows the Creator of the Universe is all powerful and that his reign is only but a whisper and it is Satan’s intent to take God’s creation down with him.

We know that everything happens in its season and according to God’s plan. Nothing surprises God.

God created man so he could walk, talk and have fellowship with his creation. Throughout history man has rebelled against the will and purpose of God while blaming others. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden God gave hard work to man and hard labor to women, and then expelled them from the garden. God placed angels to guard the entrance.

In the time of Noah the wickedness of man was great and God brought the waters to flood over the face of the earth killing every living creature, except those with Noah and his family in the Ark. God made a rainbow as a sign of the covenant between himself and mankind that he would never again destroy mankind with water.

In the days of Sodom and Gomorrah once again the wickedness of man was great and God destroyed those cities with fire and brimstone after saving Abraham pleaded with God to spare Lot, his wife and two daughters, but as Lot was leaving the city his wife turned to look back and turned into a pillar of salt.

In the days of Moses God led the people of Israel through the Red Sea and into the desert all the while they complained and wanted to turn back to the land where they had been in slavery. God provided food by day and light by night yet because they didn’t trust God, he prolonged their journey until the elders who complained were all dead and didn’t enter the promised land.

Reprobate Minds Lacking Self Control

God gave them over to a reprobate mind. A thought is repeated here that has already been hinted, and is often taught in the Scriptures. The man who turns from the truth will be allowed to have his way, will fall deeper and deeper into error, and will reap all the evil consequences of loving darkness rather than light.

Romans 1:18 – 32

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Since the creation of this nation man has sought freedom to worship God without restriction and in the course of 245 years God has made the land plentiful and prospered our people. Every time that trouble has raised its ugly head, God has provided us strength and perseverance to overcome even the greatest of obstacles.

Throughout my lifetime America has turned its back on God. We have removed him from the public square, our classrooms, and the marketplace and even from our family life. We wonder why the world has turned upside down and getting worse day after day.

Christians have earnestly prayed asking God for relief from the evil that has befallen our nation, but when God answers those prayers we collectively say “Not that way Lord, not him!” For the past 5 years we have resisted what God is doing in our midst. We rationalize our stubbornness as though we are more knowledgeable than the one who created us.

This has gone on to the point where God has turned our nation over to what we wanted and now we don’t like it one bit. However we refuse to take a knee, repent of our wicked ways and seek the face of Almighty God for his guidance. I believe God has blinded our spiritual eyes so we cannot see the truth, nor would we recognize it.

There have been 46 men selected to lead this nation. All were imperfect and sinful men. Each put their stamp on the presidency during the time they were entrusted with it. Some died in office. Many disgraced the office, dishonored the nation and God. America fought for the right for self-destruction and what we are seeing today are the fruits of their labor as God honors their decision. America has become a lover of darkness and hater of the truth. America needs a savior. America needs Jesus. He alone can save us from ourselves and from our sin.

This may very well be my final political blog to my readers as I stand back, fall to my knees and beseech Almighty God to forgive my sins, and the sins of our people, our nation and its leaders.

I ask God to spare us certain destruction from without and from within. I ask God to heal our land. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Biden Fruit of the Poisonous Tree


Biden Fruit of the Poisonous Tree

I submit to you that everything about the Biden Administration is tainted as ill-gotten gain from the November 3rd 2020 Presidential Election and if the “tree is tainted, so is the fruit”.

Fruit of the Poisonous Tree

A doctrine that extends the exclusionary rule to make evidence inadmissible in court if it was derived from evidence that was illegally obtained. As the metaphor suggests, if the evidential “tree” is tainted, so is its “fruit.” The doctrine was established in 1920 by the decision in Silverthorne Lumber Co. v. United States, and the phrase “fruit of the poisonous tree” was coined by Justice Frankfurter in his 1939 opinion in Nardone v. United States.

Like the exclusionary rule itself, this doctrine is subject to three important exceptions. The evidence will not be excluded:

if it was discovered from a source independent of the illegal activity;

its discovery was inevitable;

or if there is attenuation between the illegal activity and the discovery of the evidence.

Further, if the primary evidence was illegally obtained, but admissible under the good faith exception, its derivatives (or “fruit”) may also be admissible.

Our first indicator was the infamous “Office of the President-Elect” backdrop poster that Joe Biden displayed immediately after the skewed election tallies of November 4th when there was no president-elect. Biden unsuccessfully taunted President Trump to admit defeat so that he could be declared the winner by default.  

Our second indicator was the staged “Insurrection” on January 6th 2021 at the exact moment when the Electoral College swing state votes were to be counted. It was a planned diversionary tactic led by undercover FBI agents and Antifa to throw the blame on MAGA supporters and capped off with the murder of unarmed USAF Veteran Ashli Babbitt by Capital Police lieutenant.

Our third indicator was the second impeachment trial of President Trump in an attempt to force him out of office prior to the January 20th inauguration of Joe Biden, also a diversion.

Additional indicators are the deliberate reversing of Trump policies by President Biden beginning on day one and continue 9 months later, the opening up the southern border to foreign invaders, appointing VP Kamala Harris to oversee the mess and her continued absence at the border.

Plus the cancelling of the border wall and the XL Pipeline which seriously weakened American sovereignty and increased our dependence on foreign oil production and crippled our nation.

As well as the disgraceful surrender of US assets and US citizens in Afghanistan to Taliban invaders at great cost on August 31st.

Then we have the bungling of the C19 virus with forced injections at the threat of job loss, including our national defense by discharging active duty, civilians and contractors who refuse seriously hindering the defense and security of the nation. The unconstitutional and unlawful overreach of government pressuring defense contractors, business owners, corporations, law enforcement and first responders to get the jab or become immediately unemployed, without recourse for unemployment benefits is a disgrace to the American way of life. Threats of travel bans for the un-injected threaten the very freedom of movement within the nation and internationally are uncalled for and unheard of in America.

The Biden administration has made a mockery of government by appointing highly unqualified and unsuited cabinet officials who haven’t a clue about their jobs or the effects of their agencies actions on the economy, national security or the safety of Americans at home or around the world.

The entire Biden administration is a toxic poison tree as evidence by its fruit and compounded by the trifecta of disastrous Democratic House, Senate and Executive leadership that is unresponsive to the people. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

So I Have the Nasty Bug


So I Have the Nasty Bug

I’ve talked to people who’ve had the virus, but not much about having it or how they felt when they got it so that’s why I’m writing it down (my memory isn’t what it used to be, and even then it wasn’t that great). In case you’re wondering, the virus didn’t take away my sense of humor or common sense for that matter.

Recently had to get my first C19 test 5 days before my scheduled hernia repair operation and the results came back negative, I then underwent an outpatient surgery at a local hospital and came home the same day with instructions to take it easy and not pick up anything heavier than a jug of milk (8 lbs) until I see the doctor in 2 weeks. Those instructions were easier said than done.

About a week later I had this yukky feeling and thought I was getting a cold so I began self-medicating with standard OTC household flu meds including good old Vicks VapoRub, the old blue bottle with no expiration date. I think it is a carryover from when our kids were little.

I had been using Tylenol for arthritis, as needed and when I felt a slight fever I included Tylenol in my flu regimen, then added stuff for nasal congestion and drainage (Alka Seltzer cold and flu tablets) and began carrying tissues. I felt fine, other than the congestion in the mornings and late afternoons that continued, but felt I was on the down side of this flu bug when I went to my 2 weeks after surgery checkup.

My second surgery required another C19 test so 5 days prior I went to the hospital drive through testing site to get tested. I felt pretty good, but wasn’t surprised when the results came the next day showing that I had tested positive for C19 (the SARS virus detected in colds and flu is the same basic one detected in C19).

I then decided to take my wife to a drive through testing site to be tested, and I also received another test. Two days later her results came back negative and mine was positive.

Understandably my scheduled pacemaker replacement surgery had to be rescheduled.

Then I got a call from a representative of the Colorado health department confirming my testing positive for C19 and asking all sorts of questions about the virus and my symptoms. She followed up with an email letter of quarantine for 10 days to make sure I didn’t go out and spread the virus.

I’m basically in home-isolation for the next 10 days. So that means no trick or treating for me. Maybe I should start a Candy Go Fund Me page where anyone can donate UNEATEN candy?  😉

I still feel that both masking and getting the jab are matters that require a personal choice, not government interference. Nothing justifies giving up personal rights under the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Why Do You Keep Writing?


Why Do You Keep Writing?

I was told that based on the responses to my RTM posts about Trump, nobody is paying attention so what is my motive to keep on writing?

That’s a fair question so let me answer with this post. Until the biased media turn over a new leaf and return to fair and balanced journalism reporting as it happens and without bias someone must stand up (COVFEFE).

This is my motivation.

I watched the 8 years of Obama where he circumvented the globe apologizing for the “sins” of America defending freedom and opposing human rights violations after the Second World War. I watched as this elected head of state did his best to change America in spite of the Constitution. I watched as members of congress (his former colleagues) hemmed and hawed about his constitutional abuses, but did nothing. Obama bragged that there were had no blunders (Acorn; Fanny Mae – Freddy Mack; Cash for Clunkers; Guns to Mexican Cartels; DACA, & Benghazi) to embarrass his administration. I watched as the media held him up as the savior of blacks in America. He was “awarded” the Nobel Prize because he was black and could do no wrong. He counted on Hillary succeeding him in 2016 so that his legacy could continue to bring change like you’d never believe to an America he could be proud of.

What Obama along with many others hadn’t counted on was that Christians in America and around the world had been praying for God to do something. “Save our country. We are in grave trouble in which only you can save us,” they prayed.

Throughout biblical times God has always done things his way and in his timing. We have read how God created Adam; called Noah; brought forth Moses and used Cyrus. In every case God called forth and those who were available responded. We read about God sending his only begotten son Jesus as the Savior to redeem sinful mankind.

Throughout history courageous men and women have risen up to do the impossible. Our nation was founded on the impossible. From Plymouth Rock to California our nation has become the shining city upon a hill where people flock from around the world to enjoy freedom unlike any other place.

So when we pray and believe God hears but we don’t know how he will answer. I firmly believe that in 2015 God called a man for such a time as this. That man was Donald Trump. His mandate from God was simple – stop evil and become God’s sword to the spirit of political correctness.

I won’t go into detail but the “Resist Trump” movement has underscored the resistance of evil to Almighty God. That is why every evil deed to stop Trump failed to remove him from office. You might ask what about the 2020 stolen election? God’s plan called for Trump to be the 45th president for a specific purpose but didn’t guarantee he be reelected, nor does it mean he will be elected should he run again.

What we see with the Biden presidency is what an Obama third term looks like with fundamental changes to our country, Constitution and sovereignty that spell disaster and may very well end our nation as we know it.

This tells me that now more than ever before we should put our complete trust in God for man cannot save us. – I am the Real Truckmaster!


Do You Remember When?


Do You Remember When?

During the 2020 campaign and the Presidential Debates Trump was characterized as a womanizer, a racist and a hater of immigrants among other false accusations. A high priced hooker came out saying he paid her off to keep her quiet. Maybe she thought blackmail was just another way of doing business.

After the inauguration America was subject to:

  • The infamous Russian Collusion hoax,
  • The Mueller Inquisition, followed by
  • Impeachment 1.0,
  • The Ukrainian phone call hoax, then
  • Insurrection 1.0, immediately followed by
  • Impeachment 2.0

All had the same underlying problem, Insufficient or nonexistent evidence to convict a sitting president.

Congressional leaders on both sides of the isle began running interference on Trumps domestic and foreign policy decision. They opposed his advice and recommendations on fixing “broken” immigration laws, and accused him of bringing America closer to a war with our enemies, all the while ignored his historic summits and peace accords. His every interaction with world leaders was supposedly a breach of protocol and on the verge of treason.

The media was more than complicit in this assault on the president by enabling and in some cases orchestrating the verbal trashing of his character, his family, his administration and pushing the big lie concerning the stolen 2020 election.

Every act or action taken by the reactionary members of congress against Trump was at worst the very definition of Insurrection and at best an active coup to take out or prevent Trump’s peaceful administration of the office of the President of the United States.

And some say Trump was a “divider-in-chief” and I’d have to vehemently disagree. I’d call him the “exposer-in-chief” who brought the deep state out from the depths of the deep swamp.

Unlike your average run of the mill politicians who play in the sand, Trump builds sand castles and is a visionary with the wherewithal to take that vision and bring it to fruition.

I remember when everything Trump had been accused of doing as president came from the Biden political playbook.

Biden’s political colleagues are simply blind to the lies and political bully pulpit tactics he has used throughout his 37+ years in “public service” as a politician representing the state of Delaware in congress. It would have been better had Biden “retired” after his term as Obama’s VP, than to chance soiling his political career as a feeble and often incoherent president of the “USS Titanic”! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
