Putting Politics Aside

Putting Politics Aside

 

It’s virtually impossible in today’s politically charged environment to get politicians out of the politics of making public policy. It’s like getting lawyers out of the legal system, or businessmen out of business.

 

Since when do we need anyone telling us what to think say or do? More importantly what NOT to think say or do? An important theme running through the Constitution of the United States is that we are all created equal by our Creator God, referred to by our Founding Fathers as The Higher Power.

 

The United States of America is commonly referred to as America, when in fact it is only one country on the American Continent of North, Central and South America. In that respect not all citizens of the Americas are “American” citizens. Every person born is a citizen somewhere and that should be a source of pride and the heritage of that person and their family tree.

 

There are a lot of factors that over the years have brought us to this point in the history of our nation where a minority of individuals feel it is their “god given right” to make decisions that affect the majority of people here in the U.S.A. and around the globe.

 

I’ve been to many other countries and have experienced firsthand what it means to have certain liberties taken away, or to have the freedom of speech inhibited or restrained. I’ve been to places where it is against the law to speak out loud against the reigning leader, his family or the ruling government. It’s not pleasant to think that even thoughts can lead to arrest or imprisonment.

 

I’ve been to places so steeped in tradition that change is not even contemplated, but deemed impossible. I’ve been to places where governments are often changed by force or revolution and the threats of fear and intimidation, even death is routinely carried out. What is more frightening is a place where common sense is thrown aside and the government IS the larger threat and mob rule is the norm.

 

The purpose of government is first and foremost the safety and security of its people. Life is good when people are safe and trust the government. Life is not good when government betrays its people and threatens freedom and removes liberty.

 

In the United States ours is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

 

The Congress is called the Legislative Branch of government and has the responsibility to create law. It is made up of members of the Senate and of the House of Representatives. There is nothing written in the Constitution that determines any authorized political party in Congress. There are majority and minority leadership roles in both the Senate and the House, yet their express purpose as members of Congress is the responsibility TO the people and to the states as they assemble together to create law. What they do not know, have not learned or often forget is the fact they are NOT the leaders of our nation. Congress has become a huge voting block along political party lines and as such has become a less efficient government entity and nothing more than a “unionized shop” with threats, fear and intimidation as their primary “enforcement” tools to ensure compliance. Members of Congress are PUBLIC SERVANTS who work for and are accountable to the people. They can and will be held accountable at the polling booth on Election Day.

 

We the people choose a single leader who is the head of our government and charged to do is the will of the people of this nation. The office of the President of the United States is called the Executive Branch of our government and is responsible for enforcement of the rule of law as outlined in the Constitution.

 

The President is not the leader of the free world, nor the leader of a global conglomeration of nations. The President is the Leader of the United States of America. He speaks with the authority given in the Constitution and by the people. He represents the United States on the world stage and there is no other spokesman for this nation, unless so delegated by the President.

 

American citizens should stop voting by political party but every President should be judged by the results of his efforts for the national security of our nation, the administration of our government agencies and be assured that he can also be replaced at the ballot box on Election Day. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Congressional Black Caucus Modern Day Klansmen

3-1-2019

The Congressional Black Caucus Modern Day Klansmen

 

The term Klan was first used in 1867 referring to an organization of Ku Kluxers and a fairly comprehensive encapsulation of the Ku Klux Klan is given on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan). There were three distinct eras (1860s – 1870s), (1915 – 1920s), and (the 1950s) where the Klan has existed at different points in time during the history of the United States. The methodology of the Klan has been the advocating of extremist reactionary positions ranging from reactionary white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration to Nordicism and anti-Catholicism.

 

During the 1950s and the 1960s there were entire regions of the United States that were segregated with widespread abuse, torture and murder of blacks the norm. These were highlighted by the Civil Rights protests and marches in the Deep South under Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Selma, Alabama bus protest of Rosa Parks and the intervention by President John F. Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy with U.S. Troops to escort black children into a public school.

 

It was after the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Attorney General Robert Kennedy that the ugly head of racism began forming in the Congress of the United States. It should have been seen as a reverse form of Klanism when the Congressional Black Caucus formed as an official “blacks only” Congressional organization in 1971.

 

The Congressional Black Caucus encountered one of its first tests when President Richard Nixon refused to recognize their organization and the CBC responded by boycotting his State of the Union address. That has since been the norm for the CBC to boycott the SOTU addresses of every Republican President whose political position differs from theirs. The latest target of the CBC is President Trump and his administration.

 

The CBC has grown from 13 founding members in 1971 to more than 50+ members as of 2019. One of their stated objectives is to root out racism in the Trump Administration and in government. Not only are they behind the wave of removing confederate statues and religious monuments from public and private land. The Congressional Black Caucus members have risen within the Democratic Party with power and influence to become the guiding force of today’s DNC.

 

 

Using a combination of theologies such as Principles of Saul Alinsky to pick, isolate and attack their target by any means necessary to bring down their target, they use tactics of radical Islamic extremists to attack blacks and other minorities who do not subscribe to the Democratic Party mantra. It is no wonder that these are the same tactics employed in places like Chicago, Baltimore, New York City and other cities controlled by gangs, cartels and crime families of the era of yesteryear.

 

Emboldened by their successful tactics and empowered by their positions on various Congressional Committees and Sub-Committees members of the Congressional Black Caucus have proudly donned the dress (costumes) reminiscent of the robes of the Klansmen before them. I yearn for the day when Congressional Oversight Committees and Ethics Committees look around and take notice of the racism introduced and supported by the Congressional Black Caucus and other racially biased Congressional Caucuses active in the 116th U. S. Congress. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Trump-isms and Phobias

2-28-2019

Trump-isms and Phobias

 

What is an ism? Is it just keywords? Is it triggering phrases? This wikiquote.org page defines Trumpism in the positive light.

 

Trumpism is the philosophy and politics espoused by Donald Trump.

Trumpism, broadly defined as secure borders, economic nationalism, and America-first foreign policy.

 

While this urbandictionary.com rendition casts the definition in a very negative light, as does just about every liberal writer who think they have the scoop on Trump. In their eyes there is no good to come out of Trump Tower, or from anyone who is a trump supporter.

 

Trumpism is a nearly incurable disorder when a trump supporter blames everything else when someone criticizes Donald Trump.

 

After a brief online search I found that anti-trumpers blame Trump supporters who they say blame everything else when someone criticizes Donald Trump. That is really funny because anti-trumpers or never trumpers haven’t come to terms with the fact that Donald Trump is president because he is not your run of the mill politician who can be cornered or controlled like politicians who’ve come before him.

 

The fact that Donald Trump is a successful businessman turned public official who has been doing what other politicians have been promising to do for years. Their failure is when they do not follow through on those promises which must be extremely traumatizing for as they attempt to justify their own superiority over average American voters who are not swayed by the mindless banter of those affected by TDS that ignore the accomplishments and successes of President Trump while criticizing his choice of social media. It is likened to ignoring a glass that is half full or half empty while complaining about why Trump uses a glass at all? TDS seems to rationalize anything connected with President Donald Trump as a trigger!

 

Here are some of my favorite Trumpisms:

 

  • Fake News = Dishonest Media Outlets who strive to become the news

 

  • MAGA = Make America Great Again is rebranding the nation from the weakling to a nation of strength

 

  • TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) = The insane jealousy of a man who became President of the United States

 

  • They’re after you I’m just in the way = Personal attacks are meant to silence Trump while the Constitution is being shredded before our very eyes

 

  • Build the Wall = Secure the US/Mexico Southern Border to control and enforce immigration laws and national security

 

Those who claim to possess liberal tendencies exhibited by openly opposing President Trump’s domestic and foreign policy agenda have not learned to look to what the future holds. Instead they stay bound up in the past and ignore that Trump is making our nation stronger in the face of worldwide aggression and orchestrated mass-invasions on the US Southern Border.

 

These liberal’s suffering from TDS have no one else to blame for their phobia. Their actions and their words clearly show their anarchist intent and their hate for an individual over any love they may have had for our nation that allows them to openly express their ignorance.

 

TDS is all about control of “we the people” who are insanely jealous and intent on becoming the ruling elite. The primary blocking their “objective” are American patriots who place God over country and family over self as they stand protecting and defending the Rule of Law as defined by the Constitution of the United States and based upon biblical principles. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

To Which Kingdom Do You Belong?

To Which Kingdom Do You Belong?

 

 

I’ve been awake about an hour unable to go back to sleep. I decided to check my email and to my surprise I have only one email from The Pocket Testament League (www.ptl.org), a ministry that offers daily emails called Pocket Devotions. These are scriptural topics with tidbits to think about as well as internal questions designed to keep your focus upon what the Word of God instructs us to do.

 

You can find The Pocket Testament League on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pocketpower).

 

Today’s topic is “To Which Kingdom Do You Belong” and the following scripture verse:

 

Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

 

This hit home to me as I have been blogging for about a year and attempting to use my blogs to enlighten and inform readers on issues of personal, political and spiritual issues. Often I have become cynical, voicing my complaints, criticisms, throwing into the mix a bit of gossip and fault finding.

 

This has sort of become my writing style and until I received this devotional for today I never considered what I was doing was not pleasing to God. I did feel it was my God-given right.

 

The Questions to Ponder really hit home and made me realize the error of my ways.

 

What does your speech say about your residency? Do you belong to the kingdom of darkness or the kingdom of light? Are your words spoken to build others up according to their needs? Do those who hear you benefit by listening?

 

Four simple questions that apply to my writing as speech where I have often inserted scripture with personal opinion and lambasting others whom I felt were wrong or had wronged others. WOW! I just slapped myself in the face with my own self-righteousness. This brings me back to one of my recent writings entitled “Anger Without Sin” where I referenced another Pocket Devotional article.

 

We are created in the image of God. That’s what the Word of God tells us. We struggle daily to think with the mind of God, but because we are simply unable to comprehend or fathom beyond the surface of the wisdom of God we fail miserably.

 

My personal challenge moving forward will be to write about or choose subject matter that builds up others according to their needs. I want my writings to benefit the reader, without focusing or drawing attention upon myself. For me that will be difficult, unless I let the Spirit of God flow through my writings so that others see God the Father instead of me. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Fantasy Island Congressional Clubhouse

2-27-2019

 

The Fantasy Island Congressional Clubhouse

 

When we were kids we acquired a vacant building in a lot at the end of the road. It was basically an old shack with broken out windows and doors that couldn’t be secured. We didn’t know or care who owned it but we called it our clubhouse and no girls were allowed. It was no problem because we had no sisters and the girls who lived on our street could probably have beat us up without breaking a sweat.

 

We made up our own rules, and used some of dad’s old cancelled checks as currency. We were rich and could buy anything we wanted, but being 11, 9, 8 & 7 year olds we didn’t really want anything and knew nothing about currency. We got all our money collecting pop bottles and cashing them in at the store for 5 cents each. It was the good life and so long as we were home for supper, nobody bothered us and we were basically free spirits.

 

The Rule of Law is the Constitution of the United States and everyone knows that nobody is above the law. The Legislative Branch of government is what we call Congress. It consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Together they are responsible under the Constitution to create laws. When laws are found to have problems resulting in serious errors it is the job of Congress to fix or amend those laws. This is so simple that even a caveman can do it.

 

What I see members of Congress doing today is that once they get elected to the U.S. Congress they lose touch with everyday people and act as if they are in their own isolated clubhouse, impervious to the goings on back home or the people who elected them.

 

They allow lobbyist groups to influence their legislative agenda with money or special favors. Additionally congressional lobbying groups called Caucuses are formed to band and bind legislators together into a coalition with a specific purpose or goal. Because it is sanctioned in Congress, it has now become a giant clubhouse with many compartments (Caucuses). Each Caucus is chaired/co-chaired by the ranking member within the Caucus, who insures that all their members vote according to the goal of the Caucus. So we have a Congressional Clubhouse making up its own rules and enforcing those rules upon its members, as well as influencing other members of other Caucuses. It’s not hard to see how it has become extremely hard for Congress to accomplish anything for the good of the people they were elected to serve.

 

It has become unanimous in Congress to oppose President Trump at every opportunity. Congress has become nothing more than a huge union shop, with each Caucus chair as a shop steward. The 116th Congress beginning in January 2019 had already been in a stranglehold that has literally ground Congress to a halt.

 

The focus of stopping the President completely took over the workings of Congress. While ignoring the successes and accomplishments of the sitting President, members of Congress continued their impeding of the Government, at the enormous expense of American Taxpayers.

 

The Democratic Party has become so disorganized that newly elected socialistic members of Congress have actually begun steering the party in a new 180 degree direction while ignoring the Constitutional responsibilities of the Legislative Branch. It has become common place for members of Congress to routinely go outside the law, with little or no concern of being held accountable by the American people.

 

We are constantly hearing about Congressional oversight when it comes to various governmental agencies, yet we hear nothing about specific oversight of Congress? Each section of the Legislative Branch is responsible for insuring the training and administration of discipline within their particular portion of government. Why do we then see so little oversight when members of Congress openly speak of insurrection of the sitting President of the United States or with death threats?

 

The time is now for Congress to begin acting in the best interests of the American people and the national security of the nation. Stop the petty political politics and slanderous behavior of their “clubhouse rules” and get back to the business of Protecting and Defending the Constitution. American voters sit idly by as politicians become reckless in their actions and are primarily concerned with preserving their accumulated power and prestige in Congress. We have not learned that simply because a person is “qualified” to run for political office, not everyone should.

 

The Constitution clearly states that the powers not given to the states or to the federal government are retained by the people. Politicians are elected and can be un-elected at the polling booths when the people are armed with knowledge and know their rights under the Constitution. There are provisions for withdrawing from and establishing a new government when the existing government becomes tyrannical and unresponsive. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

The Confusion of Being Social in America

2-26-2019

 

The Confusion of Being Social in America

 

The millennials tend to look at being social as a gathering or party given by an organized group and a place where one can sort of “hang out” like online with social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others. So it stands to reason that social millennials look at America become a social nation as appealing, after all we already have social media and social security, right?

 

We’ve been hammered by socialists such as Bernie Sanders since the 1980’s and that’s longer than his fan base has been alive. The midterm elections brought forth another younger version of Bernie Sanders in the persona of New York bartender turned socialite and now Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-NY who self identifies as the new “Boss” in the House as she touts her New Green Deal.

 

Let’s digress back to the 1992 National Council for the Social Studies officially adopted definition of Social Studies “as the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence”. www.definitions.net/definition/social+studies

 

The national curriculum standards for social studies represent educators’ best thinking about the framework needed to educate young people for the challenges of citizenship. Note. The definition was officially adopted by National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) in 1992. www.socialstudies.org/standards/execsummary

 

Social studies is a field of study that seeks to unify the diverse subjects of history, politics, economics, sociology, geography and anthropology, ultimately aiming toward a comprehensive understanding of society www.reference.com › Social Sciences

When we look at the word “Social” in the context of the adjective form we are led to believe that socialism will be characterized by friendly companionship or relations like in a social club with others in one big happy community as people are meant to be social beings.

 

Social

Adjective

Relating to, devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship or relations: a social club.

Seeking or enjoying the companionship of others; friendly; sociable; gregarious

Of, relating to, connected with, or suited to polite or fashionable society: a social event.

Living or disposed to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation: People are social beings.

 

Noun

A social gathering or party, especially of or as given by an organized group: a church social.

Digital Technology = social media: photos posted to social.

 

All this talk about real world socialist governments in countries such as Venezuela failing is just falling on deaf ears because of the pie in the sky everything is beautiful rantings of college indoctrinated  liberals with the mistaken belief that others have simply gone a socialism the wrong way and they will not make those same mistakes.

 

I guess that is a natural progression from the standard bearers of the old (and I do mean old) guard of liberal Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein and others who have held the liberal party together with grit and determination (fear and intimidation) the likes of which “Flex Seal ®” could not fix.

 

What’s so bad about socialism you might ask? Well take a look at the success stories of places like Cuba, North Korea, Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar (Burma) where socialistic communism or fascistic government dictators maintain order by force and fear of death. I say to those still undeterred that taking a sabbatical to one of these paradises for a minimum of 1 year should pretty much open the eyes of those blinded by the lure of socialism.

 

Socialism is not Facebook or Instagram pie in the sky. – I am the Real Truckmaster!

Anger Without Sin

2-25-2019

 

Anger without Sin

 

Look around at current events through the lens of “Godly Eyes” and what do you see? The world has seemingly gone amok!

 

The killing of the innocent is lauded as a woman’s right to choose. Sorry but that is not a guarantee under the Constitution or the laws of God. There is no such thing as anyone’s right to murder another. Murder is illegal and God calls it for what it is Sin.

 

Our nation has preached tolerance for so long that tolerance is no longer tolerated. How’s that for you oxy-morons? We are told to tolerate the intolerable, accept the unacceptable. Failure to lower our own personal standards places us in the same category as the scum of the earth.

 

Let me clue you in on something, we are born into a fallen sinful world which makes everyone the scum of the earth. There is not one thing that we can do to lift ourselves out of this scum; Nothing.

 

We are told by the Word of God (Jesus) to trust in God with all of our heart, mind and soul. Our body is not our own, it is the temple of the living God. We are to search everything as to whether it matches up with what God calls good. We are to run away from evil.

 

To the Christian believer sin is sin and not to be tolerated or partaken of. We are no longer of this world, but have been set free from the bondage of sin by the Blood of Jesus. It is not what we deserve for the wages of sin is death. God is the Creator of all and the giver of life to every living creature, animals, birds, fish and plants and all mankind. There can be no life without God and spiritual death is separation from God for eternity.

 

The choice is ours to make. Continue in our life of sin or ask God to forgive us? Choosing God leads to life any other choice leads to a spiritual death with separation from God eternally.

 

I’m not some holier-than-thou or a more-perfect human being. I’m simply one who gets caught up in the daily onslaught of human interaction and while using the faculties and emotions created in my by God tend to lose sight of the “end game” at times.

 

I am less tolerant of the stupidity of mankind and become impatient when it comes to anyone forcefully trying to peddle sin as truth, justice and the American way. It just doesn’t wash with me.

 

Our nation was founded on the Christian principles of the Bible. Our Constitution is the law of the land and based on the premise that the laws of God are surpreme.

 

When we as a people turn our backs on Almighty God who created us, we are simply thumbing our noses up at God declaring him irrelevant and that is dangerously ignorant on our part for it is God alone who can save us.

 

What we see today are people looking to governments or men for salvation. They will reap what they sow. Government is the compromise of men and women who bicker amongst themselves about how to do what is “best” for their people. God is the only answer. Until God becomes the center of human life and existence all paths lead to certain destruction.

 

Only God can rise up a leader who allows the voice of the Almighty to direct his paths and bring his people out of the wilderness. As he has done in “biblical” days of old, God searches the heart of a man requiring only availability. Often it is the most unlikely or undesirable whom God chooses and it is my firm belief that President Donald J. Trump is that man. The accomplishments we see are more than coincidence or charisma they are acts by God to show his love to us. So long as a man walks in obedient faith, God promises to prepare the way and walk beside him. The impossible become possible when God is the center of it all. We are told that God’s ways are not man’s ways and we cannot fathom or understand the reasoning of God’s plan. To the unsaved mind it seems like folly while to the believer nothing is impossible with God.

 

Our nation and the world are at a historical crossroad. Nations crumble while corrupt leaders prosper. The poor become poorer while the rich become richer and life is not fair. Yet God brings the rain on the rich and the poor alike.

 

The idea of political correctness is a curse to weaken and bring down the will of a people. It pits man against man, family against family and people against people until there is nothing left but hatred and anger. That is why we are told to be angry but sin not.

 

Here are three bible verses which instruct us to be angry but sin not.

 

Psalm 97:10: “Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”

Proverbs 8:13: “To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.”

Amos 5:15: “Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.”

 

Mark 3:5 – When Jesus looked around at the arrogance of man he became angry and spoke to the man to stretch out his hand and Jesus healed him. Jesus directed his anger at sin, not at the people whom he would soon die to deliver from their sin.

 

We strive to be like Jesus. We are to hate sin, not people. Sin cannot be legislated to become acceptable when God has declared it as sin. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
