We’ve all heard about Bill Clinton’s indiscretions in the Oval Office during his presidency but it wasn’t until he left office that it was made known that his White House staff thought it was funny to sabotage West Wing computers and vandalize them using super glue on the keyboards. How much taxpayer dollars did it take to clean up that mess?
When Barack Obama came into office everyone thought he was all that and a bag of chips. He got the Nobel Prize because they thought he was going to do great things for blacks in America and for the world at large. He did neither but began to systematically dissemble our system of government by doing what he wanted so long as it was not expressly prohibited by the Constitution. Congress raised narry an eyebrow or any objections.
What was to be Obama’s third term agenda for a Hillary Clinton presidency was sidetracked when Donald Trump got in the way.
Obama publicly wished Trump’s presidency success while silently twisting a proverbial knife into Trump’s back.
We watched as democratic operatives routinely and illegally leaked sensitive information from the West Wing and seemed to get away scot free.
The Joe Biden presidency is merely a continuation of Obama’s agenda and raises the question of who’s really running the show?
With a democratic trifecta House, Senate and Presidency the nation is pitching headfirst into a black hole never before seen in American history.
The recent and illegal leaking from the SCOTUS is just another nail in the proverbial coffin that if left unpunished will lead to the shredding of the glue that has held this nation together – the biblically based US Constitution! A train wreck ahead looming faster than the sinking of the Titanic. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
If you’ve followed my RTM blogs on social media you know that I’m a huge support of Donald J. Trump and I make no apologies for being a MAGA fan who loves God, my family and the country of my birth. So recently a when a new FB friend thought it was unbelievable that I (being a man of faith) could support Trump because he is a liar, my response to him was “Aren’t we all”?
Ever since that short exchange I’ve thought about how could anyone believe the political attacks, and outright dirty dealings levied against Trump during the campaign and throughout his term in office and continue to this day, unless you know firsthand?
To me what is even more troubling is that men and women of faith, those who call themselves Christians would get caught up in nothing more than the spreading of gossip about a man who had it all and yet chose to stand up and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in what was revealed to him through prophesy as a God ordained run for the presidency in 2015. Think about it!
As I have written previously, when Trump came down the staircase at Trump Tower and made his announcement, like everyone else I thought it was a joke. During the first RNC debate he wasn’t taken seriously. During the second RNC debate I felt he went too far as began attacking his political opponents in the RNC and the DNC’s favorite daughter – Hillary Clinton. Trump went for the political jugular! When Trump got the RNC nomination I took it as a sign of hope for America. Here was a man fighting to build a better country and return our nation to it justly deserved greatness, as God had intended. I knew that if Hillary won it would have been a continuation of the Obama administration and America would have been in serious trouble. The campaign had unleashed a firestorm of allegations and accusations of sexual impropriety by Trump which did not deter or disrupt Trump winning the election and I knew that God had other plans, but I still didn’t know the backstory behind the Trump victory.
I watched the inauguration on January 20, 2016 and observed congressional hostility as the Democrats openly boycotted as a sign of “resistance”. It was much more than that. In my opinion it was the beginning of the treasonous insurrection to unseat the duly elected President of the United States.
Almost immediately President Trump reached out to congressional leaders. He urged them to do something legislatively to fix Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Order on DACA so he could sign it officially into law. He urged them to conduct a comprehensive reform of immigration. He urged them to restore a House rule that would restore the smooth flow of legislation. Did they listen? Did they grasp the olive branch extended by the President? Did anything change? No, Democrats came out with a televised charge of Trump being a racist toward Haitians.
The arrogance of Congress was appalling. During a meeting in the Oval Office former Speaker Pelosi said to President Trump, “You don’t know the importance I bring to this meeting!” I saw that as a threat.
Then the 2016 incident of the California high school basketball players caught stealing sunglasses during an overseas “goodwill” tour in China. They were placed under house arrest in their hotel by Chinese authorities and released only after President Trump intervened and arranged to have them flown home to their families. Did any of them publicly or privately say thank you? No, and one of the adults on tour with the basketball players was a father who said it was no big deal. A student who did apologize said he was made to do it to avoid discipline from the school.
So why am I so committed to supporting President Trump you might ask?
I began to wonder about whether Donald J. Trump had any faith and if so in what or whom? Being a self-made-man with all the bells and whistles that we call success I wondered did he know God? I mean I wanted to know was Trump a Christian? I heard of men claiming to believe in many religions so that when they die they’re “covered” and I didn’t know if Trump was one of them too?
I decided to find out for myself and basically Googled “Donald Trump and Faith” and one of the top hits was a book title “The Faith of Donald J. Trump” which was available in Kindle format. I bought it so I could begin reading immediately.
I later purchased the hardcover book that I loan it out to those with the same questions and it has become an invaluable reference which I use continually. In Chapter 14 Trump talks about his faith, but it was when I got to Chapter 17 that I became convinced that God had anointed Trump to be his Isaiah 45 president.
I’m not going to rehash all the incidents and/or attacks that have been levied against President Trump, except to say they are from the satanically inspired playbook of Saul Alinsky. In Rules for Radicals the objective is to take down the face of an institution or organization by taking down the persona of that organization. Identify, Isolate & Attack using personal, professional or any other means and facts are irrelevant.
Christians have a hard time believing Trump a spiritual President because he isn’t a “Billy Graham” type of Christian. If you read Isaiah 45 you will see that God chose King Cyrus who knew of, but did not know God. The bible tells us that God made a donkey talk and said if people didn’t praise him he would make the rocks cry out. So who’s to say God couldn’t or didn’t take a fallen sinful man and place him into the office of the presidency for a specific purpose? The bible tells us that it is God who rises up kings and it is God who brings them down, all according to HIS purpose and for HIS glory!
I took it upon myself to read several books (The Making of a President in 2016 by Roger Stone; The Briefing by Sean Spicer; In My Own Words by Sarah Huckabee Sanders; and For Such a Time as This by Kayleigh McEnany) those closest to President Trump and each tell of a kind, caring and compassionate man they have come to know and love and call him their friend. From The Faith of Donald J. Trump, Chapter 17, Lance Wallnau “told Trump that the reason God’s hand was on him was because of the grace of God—to restrain evil.”
We have seen and continue to see now that evil rise up against Donald J. Trump and it’s with the intensity of the father of lies. Yet we know from Romans 8: 28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Instead of carrying water for the devil, shouldn’t we be carrying the peace that passes all understanding? For the devil is a liar! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
Bikers have a saying, “It’s not the destination, but the journey” and country singer Mac Davis had this hit “Stop and Smell the Roses”. In my 70+ years I’ve come to see life as more than a journey, it’s an opportunity to serve the Creator God or self.
In the book of Joshua 24:15 – But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
We’re faced with that exact situation today. Do we serve the gods of greed, fame, or fortune? Do we question the wisdom of the God, who created us that maybe he made a mistake? Are our idols held high on the pedestal of Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard or New York’s Wall Street? Do we sacrifice our children on the altar of abortion?
Have we abdicated our nation to self-serving politicians because we are convinced that it is the government who knows what is best for us? I find it hard to believe that the God of the bible would abandon his people, this nation and stand aside while we allow our nation to suffer and die because we did nothing. In the words of Patrick Henry, “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.”
People pray and ask God to do something. They do not even hear his answer that he did send his son Jesus to save us from our sin and he created you – for such a time as this! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
There still seems to be confusion when it comes to migration versus refugees and often it is fueled by political misinformation. It is now possible to travel within Europe without worrying about borders and there are those who feel it should be possible to travel freely anywhere around the globe the same way.
The United States is a nation of immigrants, a melting pot of people from many races and ethnicities who come here for a better life. There are many who flee political, religious or racial oppression and travel many miles to escape. Others come here to work and send money to support their families back home. And yes there are many who make a profit off the misfortunes of others and will do whatever they can to take advantage of the less fortunate. The purpose of immigration laws is to insure that criminal and undesirable migration does not happen.
The idealists want to tear down the walls and open the borders while religionists want to create sanctuaries where refugees can be protected and politicians create laws that are ineffective or inhibit the flow of immigrants while making it impossible to affordably, easily or speedily migrate into our nation. In some cases rather than change laws to streamline or ease rules of entry other politicians simply ignore the laws and are complicit in breaking immigration laws for political or monitory gain while creating misinformation campaigns to distract the public from their lawless actions and cause racial division.
Constitutionally it is the President who can restrict or restore immigration from various regions. It is the Congress who creates immigration bills for the president to sign into law. It is the responsibility of Homeland Security to insure migration into the country is in accordance to current immigration laws.
Therefore the present practice of the Biden administration to allow unfettered entry through the US-Mexico border endangers American citizens and residents and threatens national security, while transporting migrants in the dead of night by air or by land to the interior of the nation is unlawful. How do we justify the continued screening of travelers through our international airports and water entry points, while suspending the rules along our southern border?
Don’t be confused.
Asylum seekers should seek refuge in the nearest nation. Those desiring to come to America can do so at the nearest US Embassy or US Consulate and wait for their paperwork to be processed.
Laborers can apply for work permits to enter this country and must abide by the terms of the work permit.
Immigrants seeking residency can also apply.
Orderly migration is always the way to enter into the United States. To do otherwise is unlawful can result in being banned from entry. Those who assist in unlawful entry are law breakers and should be punished in accordance with the law. When immigration laws are flawed, they should be changed by the legislative process, not ignored. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
Less than 15 months into the Biden administration we’ve been on system overload with misinformation and political correctness over getting vaccinated or with the latest booster (#4, #5 or who knows). There are those who insist that choosing not to get vaccinated endangers the entire planet, when in reality just getting vaccinated has compromised the health and immunity of a slice of young people across the nation. I still feel that it must remain a personal choice since the consequences are indeed personal. Never should it have gotten to the point of losing one’s right to choose, livelihood or in extreme cases one’s life. Good bad or indifferent choice is up to the individual, not a state or federal mandate.
America has yet to rectify the massive election fraud scandal of the 2020 presidential election. More and more is coming to light and states are being urged to decertify those election results. At this point how that will help is anyone’s guess. Unless there is widespread state laws across the board outlawing electronic voting, banning companies, machines and software; unless perpetrators are identified, arrested and charged for committing election fraud; companies are banned from inserting funds into the election process; and until violators of election fraud are held accountable elections in the foreseeable future will remain tainted. The only quick fix is a mandatory return to in person voting using paper ballots and voter identification against an active voter database. We have 50 chances to get it right.
Many democrats are worried that Trump will run in the 2024 presidential election. There is a very real fear of Trump mania sweeping the nation as it did in the last two elections and that’s a good thing. I believe that Trump is right where he needs to be right now – encouraging conservatives to run for public office in both state and federal offices. If you look at the crowds attending his rallies you can’t help but feel the excitement and I’m sure that fuels Trump in his desire to make America really great again.
Ever since he announced his run for the presidency in 2015 the problem has been misinformation, propaganda and an all-out resistance to anything Trump. These tactics have been taken right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook “Rules for Radicals” on how to take down the individual representing the government and American’s have fallen for it hook, line and sinker.
It is still my opinion that the “insurrection” began on January 20th, 2016 and continues to run unchecked in 2022 and until the Department of Justice is cleansed of partisan politics and gets down to the business of prosecuting the law breakers and offenders of that insurrection, instead of dwelling on the alleged “January 6” MAGA folks many who remain confined without charges even today, we are no closer to the bottom of the barrel of rotten apples than we were in 2015.
Congress has become overly corruptible these past 40+ years and until major changes are done “in house” to set straight the manner in which congress operates, including setting term limits in both the Senate and the House, and disbanding congressional caucuses, which after all are congressional lobbying groups and then enacting rules for sitting legislators seeking the office of the presidency to resign their seat in congress upon filing their (letters of intent) papers and forming a campaign exploratory committee. There should be no fallback position in public service.
More importantly America must take back the education of our children. Stop the woke, political correctness, gender identification and anti-religious desensitizing and get back to the Pledge of Allegiance, giving honor to Almighty God, and then teaching reading, writing and arithmetic. Our children need to be competitive in the real world with business smarts, finances, and trade skills that will enable our nation to survive another 250+ years into the future. We need to stop making excuses and begin taking steps and action to keep our nation alive and well for our children and grandchildren in the years to come. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
How many times have you heard someone say it doesn’t matter how dumb Biden is he’s still smarter than Trump? I’m being serious. Biden has taken to task Trump’s slogan of Make America Great Again and replaced it with Build it Back Better.
But what must happen to build something back? That’s right first you have to tear it down.
How do you tear down a booming economy? Assault it with a pandemic scare, couple that with changing from a self-sustaining national product and forcing dependency upon national enemy states (China, Iran, and Russia).
The Obama legacy was nearly stopped dead in its tracks, or so it seemed as Trump began changing the course and direction toward America First. I can’t help but remember Carey communicating to foreign governments (in an unofficial capacity of course) that Trump wouldn’t be around that long, and then things could get back to “normal”. How could he possibly know that?
The fact that the dynamic-duo of Biden-Harris has once again highlighted what has been wrong in congress for quite a few years now – ineptitude to the max. Precisely why we need term limits for members of congress. We also need a law(s) or rule(s) that requires sitting members of congress who delve into campaigning for POTUS to immediately resign their seat in congress.
Another thing I recall is the construction on the White House grounds during the Obama administration that ended as it had abruptly began. And then shortly after leaving office there was what I call an “off site, alternate location or “White House” purchased and reinforced by Obama just a short 1-mile from the White House. What is that all about?
After seeing Biden wearing a wire during the debates where he was being fed information or coached during questioning. It’s not a stretch to consider an Obama team in the alternate location running the entire Biden show with Obama monitoring and controlling every step of the way. It’s not a conspiracy theory to assume its “The Manchurian Candidate 2.0” in action. In fact why no arrests, apprehensions or prosecutions of high powered law breakers, during the Trump – Biden presidencies for violating federal laws on immigration, espionage or treason? Why the cover up of election and voter fraud from 2015 – 2020? Saying it did not happen is no excuse!
In my humble opinion Trump’s love for America surely outweighs Biden’s love of political party and family enrichment. The nation is headed for a non-recoverable fall under Biden and not even the threat of another Trump presidency may save the nation from this terrible fate of unsustainable electric energy, illegal immigration or international diplomacy UNLESS Almighty God steps in with an undeniable “Act of God”. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
During today’s discussion I had this thought about what it means to be a Christian? I mean anybody can claim to be a believer, but what do their actions say about their faith?
Take Saul of the bible, his zeal for persecuting and his commissioning to go after those he believed were heretics gave him great joy until one day he had an encounter with Jesus that changed his focus and his life forever. From that point on he went all out in the completely opposite direction defending the faith at all cost and wrote a great majority of the New Testament under extremely taxing conditions.
There are many more examples throughout the bible where God used ordinary men and women to do the impossible. God did many miracles with nobodies, people society had discarded or simply overlooked.
David was a runt, then stepped up and slew Goliath.
Moses had a speech problem and couldn’t keep his hands up, so God used Aaron to enable Moses to do what he chose him to do.
Noah, an old man in whom God found favor, built the ark as others scoffed at him; he then sailed away with his family as God gave mankind a mulligan.
Time and again God made dry bones to live again and made a donkey to speak and said even the rocks would cry out.
I’ve read of modern day men whom God used not because of their ability, but of their availability.
Jim Elliott, a “no compromise” missionary who flew to Central America to bring the gospel to a heathen tribe and who with his fellow missionaries were murdered along by the very people he came to reach. In the end many of those same tribesmen became believers.
David Wilkerson, the country preacher who went to Harlem to bring the gospel to a gang of hoodlums. When gang leader Nicky Cruz threatened to kill him and cut him up in little pieces, Wilkerson stood firm and said every piece would cry out that “Jesus Loves You”. And when shot at point blank range the bullet stopped and fell to the ground without touching Wilkerson. Nicky Cruz is now a believer who talks at churches of the power of the love of Jesus.
Keith Green, a talented pianist, writer and singer played in the bars up and down the California coastline, but when God got his heart, he too went all out for God with “no compromise” writing and singing as the heart of God dictated until a tragic airplane crash took his life and everyone on his small airplane.
Billy Graham an evangelist who spent his lifetime preaching the gospel while seeking the lost and bringing a multitude to the salvation knowledge of Christ.
These men all had one thing in common, their no-compromise commitment to the calling that God gave them.
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
I’m not one with all the answers to life’s problems, in fact I don’t even have any of the questions, but I believe that we spend way too much time seeking the hands of God when we should be seeking his face. A friend relayed a message he received from God that we should seek God’s face (not his hands). We are to seek his face while he may be found, then maybe just maybe we will see and feel the heart of God. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
I was only six years old when the Second Indochina War began with conflict between Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia on 11-1-1955. I was raised in the farmland of Southwestern Idaho and graduated high school with the Kuna class of 1967 before joining the army in September 1967 and fully expecting to join my fellow countrymen fighting in Vietnam.
I didn’t know that things wouldn’t work out the way I thought. While my training classmates received their individual orders heading to Southeast Asia, my orders were to a different part of Southeast Asia and I ended up in the Kingdom of Thailand after stopping at Tan Son Nhut AB in Vietnam during the TET 1968.
I spent 1968, 1969 and half of 1970 as an army truck driver hauling bullets, bombs, general supplies and at times refrigerated cargo to the Royal Thai Air Force Base units prosecuting the air war from Thailand. We also hauled supplies to the army units engaged in building infrastructure (roads, camps and bases) in support of the war effort in Thailand. I didn’t know it at the time but our role served a dual purpose, to support the war effort and to serve as an on the ground combat force should the conflict spill over into Thailand.
As American involvement of the war began to wind down Thailand based units began to stand down and prepare for deactivation and I became one of the troops leaving under the Early Release of Vietnam Returnees Program.
Having been insulated from the anti-war efforts going on stateside it came as a real shock when we were told not to wear military uniforms or carry military clothing when leaving the Oakland Army Terminal so as not to draw attention from the protestors.
Life back home seemed to carry on without me and I soon felt like a left wheel on a right hand bicycle. I missed army life, the camaraderie and the moves from base to base. Soon I joined the army again and found myself stationed at the Panama Canal Zone when Saigon fell on 4-30-1975.
Life after Southeast Asia was a double whammy because I couldn’t talk about my duty in Thailand as a number of my fellow soldiers who were boots-on-the-ground and/or Vietnam combat Veterans who consider my service worthy, primarily because they had no idea we what our mission had been while they were fighting “Charlie” anywhere in Vietnam. Civilian protestors and even other soldiers treated us differently.
I retired from the army after 22 years in 1990, but never hear “Welcome Home” until at a Veteran’s Day Parade in Colorado Springs sometime around 1998. My mission has been to educate myself, fellow Thailand Veterans of the Vietnam War and the general public about our service and how we came home with Agent Orange and our bodies began dying back in Southeast Asia (we just didn’t know it). – I am the Real Truckmaster!
The political climate in America is not affected by the social postings of armchair politicians who frequently tell us to “do as I say, just not as I do.” And it wouldn’t surprise me if Saul Alinsky had been a senior professor specializing in disruptive tactics at a covert and hidden CIA training facility or even a Society for Creative Radical and Extreme War University (SCREW U) for political reporters and correspondents (satire).
I base my premise on the fact that Alinsky believed and wrote books on how to disrupt government and the CIA is infamous in clandestine operations around the world doing the exact same thing and to the point that foreign leaders and governments have routinely failed. So why let the US Constitution block such efforts here at home? At this point both Alinsky tactics and CIA operational methods have become imbedded inside our own government as well as the news networks nationwide.
When the leader of the free world rescues US Citizens (teenagers) breaking the law during a foreign goodwill tour in China and correspondents take it upon themselves to demonize the rescuer, yet hardly raise an eyebrow when his predecessor abandons US Citizens (civilians) and their allies, military equipment, weapons of war and pallets of cash, handing the “keys to the kingdom” to the enemy bent on taking over the duly elected government in Afghanistan, I wonder where their individual and corporate loyalties lie?
When Trump as the leader of this nation promoted patriotism and national identity the backlash was overwhelming, but when his predecessor literally and figuratively destroys American lives and livelihood; businesses struggling to stay open; personal freedoms and liberties are curtailed by presidential mandates and we are told to suck it up or you are the problem, I wonder where did common sense go?
Every time an event involving foreign state actors happens we are told not to mention the location or nationality as it fuels racial hatred; yet we are being conditioned to hate and apologize for being white. And in American cities criminal conduct is being de-criminalized or not prosecuted because of what – racial identity – A recent announcement in a democrat community that criminals attempting to car-jack a police vehicle will not be prosecuted?
Our society has been brain-washed to the point that even in light of the obviously demented state of our nation’s president, even now there are those who believe he’s doing a wonderful job of keeping our nation – safe and prosperous, when the opposite is clear.
To them I say – look at their records from inauguration day until end of term or present. Gage the economy, the job market, national debt and overreaching government agencies.
Can you honestly say your life is better then or now? – I am the Real Truckmaster!
