Saving Karrie – Stellar

Fri, 02/01/2019 - 9:09am

The sun was just creeping over the Wasatch Mountains as Karrie slipped her tracker off her wrist and climbed out of her second story bedroom window. She smiled to herself as the saw the device still flashing blue, blue, blue. No evidence that she ever left the house that morning. Landing catlike on the deck, she quickly sprinted across the yard, dropped into the irrigation ditch that allowed her to go under the fence, not over.

She’d made this trip many times, and it was easy to lay low, unseen by passing cars. She found herself in the park, watching for lights in Tesla’s house. None came on. It was a Sunday, and the family, not being one of the faithful, didn’t rise early after Saturday night. Karrie counted on that. She’d been there many times, and knew that even Tesla, herself, would be comatose right now. But, she wasn’t in a hurry. She had to do this right.

As she watched she recalled the nights Tesla ordered her to the park, to the rest room, and they took her money, and her childhood. Then came the court case. Then the treatment center, and that center got whatever Tesla and her group missed.

When she was sure that no one was awake she eased across the street. Looking all around she slipped her hand beneath the garage door. She knew it wouldn’t be locked. It never was. This was Tesla’s way in and out. Slowly, quietly, she eased the door up just enough to allow her to roll under. Then, even slower, she let the door down. There wasn’t anyone in the garage. If caught, she would say that she’d run away again, and the family’s would just chase her out. She knew right where the little electric heater was. It was on, but she turned it off to let it cool a bit. Then, shoving it against some blankets hanging over a bed frame, she retrieved a little bottle of nail polish remover from her pocket. Taking the lid off, she placed it inside the guard of the heater right near the element. She turned on the little heater just past the point where it would come on. Quickly going back to the garage door, she again eased it up, rolled under, and ran across the street to the park, waiting on a swing set.

Retrieving a sandwich bag filled with chicken nuggets, she began to pop them into her mouth, one by one. The sun was rising and shining into her face, obstructing her view, so she put on her mirror sunglasses. As the glow began to show through the garage windows, and the flames appeared, reflected on the mirrors before her eyes, Karrie popped another nugget into her mouth, grinned, and said, “Stellar!”

How to Spot Fake News – For Dummies

Fri, 02/01/2019 - 6:17am
How Do You Spot Fake News?

First lets examine a prioritized checklist of fact checking “best practices.”

  1. First of all, you need to keep up with a story for month or two, to determine the key points that keep surfacing from news, the party officials, and from independent sources. If you don’t have time to broadly understand the issue, DON’T READ IT AT ALL, DON’T RE-POST IT.   This is not an endorsement of remaining uninformed, but if you’re not informed, don’t post, and don’t vote, because almost every story has either lies or misleading omissions in it now.  That is not an exaggeration.  We are in the days of “universal deceit,” as Orwell predicted. Democracy demands objective, unselfish, informed voters wary of politicians buying their votes.  Study, or stay home and keep quiet.  Learn.
  2. Look hardest for whistle-blowers risking their jobs and pensions.  Edward Assange, and the recent spate of CIA agents exposing the fraud of Russian Collusion are good examples.  Notice Assange was not scorned until he exposed DNC emails.  Before that, the Democrats considered Assange a hero, right?  The soldier Bradley Manning was commuted…Now Assange is colluding with Russia?  Really? That’s principle inversion based on evidence exposure, a sign of truth-hiding on a grand scale.
  3. If the reporter uses definitive descriptions of…
    1. Negative personal appearance
    2. or describes offensive manners of the person they are reporting on,
    3. or describes how everyone doesn’t like the person they are reporting on,
      ..these are hearsay and subjective references which “black flag” the report.  Don’t read it.
  4. Look for named witnesses, not hidden.  Hidden witnesses can be ok, but deserve far more scrutiny.
  5. Watch for the reports which assume a truth at the start, without explanation: Like assuming global warming has been proven, as in this report:
    https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2019/01/27/climate-change-politics-224295
    Another outlandish assumption seen frequently is that Donald Trump is widely unlikable or confused, after he was a darling of TV and the New York City social scene for decades; ran huge, complicated businesses; and wrote a number of books.  These are truly diverse and socially skillful accomplishments, so the unlikable claims are obviously a political accusation, in such cases. These are easy to prove false, just like saying Obama or Bush was a moron.  Remember, Reagan was a cowboy, daddy Bush a banker’s toady, W a moron, and now they slander Trump as well. The pattern is clear when Obama and Clinton had no bad reputations at all, in the media.  “Teflon Bill” came from now-obvious leftist press adulation, not skill at promotion.  Reporters should not be discussing if someone is liked or if their idea is unpopular.  Journalism was a fact-based profession for years, but not now.“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” -Orwell
  6. Multiple, confirmed, detailed testimonies are powerful, even if some details appear in conflict. It is normal for eyewitness accounts to vary and have detailed observations.  They must lack in feelings and emotional words, except where appropriate.
  7. Consistency of testimony is valuable, but perfect correlation is a red light.
  8. If it is a theory or paper, check for “Sources of Error” style challenges at the end of the report. If they don’t exist – the paper should be considered a likely lie.  If the proponents of such theory don’t know the sources of error, they are deceivers – all theories are judged primarily on sources of error details and conflicts in the theory.
  9. Independent conclusions from different unconnected sources are VERY powerful evidence of truth, if each conclusion is derived from different data sources.
  10. Watch for “science” divided by party lines – these are fraud sciences: Economics and global temperature predictions are the most prominent, now.
  11. Avoid news sources who meet secretly with the DNC (proven in Wikileaks), or repeat the same stories as those sources report, like NPR.  The exposed political apparatchiks include CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, Bloomberg, Daily Beast, Huff-Po, GPG, NY Times, New Yorker, People, Politico, and Vice.
  12. Look for news sources that tell both sides of the story. Liberals brazenly bury the fact that Fox News presents the liberal side of stories as well, but when I turn on leftist news – I ONLY get their leftist slant and view, and the reports are eerily similar, as if they were coordinated presentation, consistent with meeting to plan news, not independent reporting of salient facts of concern.
  13. Source reputation is paramount, rarely accept a story from a left-leaning news outlets, or any outlet that only give the left’s view and slant.  But, even the New York Times prints the truth occasionally, like reporting early on about the Clinton Foundation raking in cash from Russia, while selling them Uranium!  Often you can find the facts in early reports from the left leaning outlets, before it become politicized.  For some reason, the NYT stopped reporting on this lead:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html
  14. Collusion signs – look for all the news sources simultaneously amping-up a story like the Kavanaugh lies: No witness corroborated that story, and 2 denied it.  Yet it was reported as honest testimony in violation of a century of best practices journalism ethics:  Don’t report a story unless you have 2 corroborating reports from dependable sources.
After Reading The News….

Check the math, if it’s a technical issue. For instance, global warming FAILS numerous math and thermodynamic challenges.  Whistleblowers exist.  Data manipulation proof exists. Huge paycheck-yielding financial incentives for “proof” exist. The promoters won’t amicably discuss the conflicts in the claims – they are unable to argue with Socratic conflict-based analysis discussions.  They often use the word “believe,” which is a faith-based investment, a sign of “a”-scientific thought.  It is a fraud.  If the person promotes Global Warming, all their advocacy should be highly questioned, because they are pushing at least one easily provable lie – and they appear to know it is lie, by how they answered thousands of cross-exam questions I asked hundred of proponents: They spoke with prevarication artifacts, just like a guilty Columbo suspect trying to hide their awareness of a crime.

Ask trusted experts you know. NONE OF THEM can be democrats or liberals, they lie about everything and pass on information ROUTINELY without fact checking. I know because I tried to talk policy with them for 20 years, and ALL of them routinely pass on information they know is classified as “false rumor”: They can’t talk through the source checking amicably, and they refuse to discuss the flaws in the theory amicably.  They become catty and evasive.

Republicans lie too, but mostly it is only about the nations’ borrowing being healthy when Reagan, Bush or Trump does it.  Conservative-leaning writers are much more likely to present source data which is confirmable, and will OFTEN discuss flaws in their information graciously, both are signs of honesty.

Those whom you see discussing flaws in their position amicably, are most likely honest.  Those energetically avoiding flaws in their position, are deceivers.

Check the data sources. But, even the government economic tables are tainted now, Obama began changing the old CBO records while he was in office.  “Revisions,” which always went in the left’s favor.   Challenge the provider of the table to questions about what supports the correlation in the graph, if they are using a correlation argument.  There must but solid causal arguments, along with correlation, to be plausible.   For instance: Both liberals and Republicans claim more debt grows the economy – it’s NOT TRUE – because the debt gets counted in the GDP.  Correlation is due to GDP equation manipulation, not success in growing the private sector.  Government spending is not private sector growth, that is government growth – the opposite of GDP.

If you can ask questions, ask promoters of questionable news “Columbo questions,” which expose how false claims awareness in the material.  For instance, your Certified Financial Advisor should be able to comfortably discuss why health insurance is weighted only approximately 1% in the Consumer Price Index, when health care spending is 20% of economy.  If they don’t acknowledge the issue of such wide disparity of “consumer spending weight” and GDP percent, then they are simply hiding something bigger.  For deeper study:
http://www.teapartytribune.com/2018/05/09/ignored-american-dumpster-fire-inflation/

Economics is a political science now – the liberal “economists” are pushing an easily provable false premise: Government fabrication of “borrowed” money grows an economy.  Avoid all economics articles from liberal sources, they are full of lies.   Recent studies of Economics papers indicated 50% of them were not repeatable science.   For further study: http://www.teapartytribune.com/2015/10/14/the-red-pill-economics-exposed-as-fraud-science/

Americans and the Work Ethic

Americans And The Work Ethic

When I was just a boy I learned about work. I’m a ‘52 model, white and male, so that gives you some idea of my cultural bias. I wanted to be a success, like my father and grandfather, so I paid close attention to how they did things. I found out that a successful man treats everyone fairly, and gives them respect until reason exists not to, and then to rise above and pass them on without further notice. I learned that successful men comported themselves with dignity, even in their own homes; I never saw my father without his shirt buttoned, and we wore acceptable clothing at all times. We used polite and acceptable language, with good diction, if you please. I learned that successful men were punctual in their timing, and in their manners. And I learned that successful men treated all that they depended on, and all that depended on him with regular care and maintenance. But the two most important things I learned about successful men was that they possessed an impeccable work ethic, and a word that would be as good when it was needed as it was when spoken.

Those two aspects were my father’s legacy to me, and they were the legacy of every American boy as well. Everywhere you looked, from the president of the country to the pharmacist behind the counter, men were unfailingly polite, helpful and, when needed, brave. Of course most every community had bad actors. The police were helpful in maintaining communities in those days, and not a little individual action was taken of an occasion to remind the less punctilious of the boundaries we insisted on as individuals protected by our community.

But one of the most effective tools we had in those days were community action groups, so called because when it was needed, they took action. No red tape, no lawyers arguing about relativity, just get straight, or get gone from our community. Now I won’t say that such groups did not make mistakes. Heck, I won’t even say that some of them weren’t snake mean and downright abusive. Some of them were.

That having been said, I remember groups that reached out to people on the fringes, and did what needed to be done to help folks below the waterline rise; some of them to find prominence in the next generation. No, what Aristotle said of war, that it was evil for it removes more good men than it makes, that’s true. But war is a necessary evil, or it would not exist. The same might be said of community action groups.

Such groups put power in the hands of the few, and that power has been shown to be a sword that cuts both ways. But, we need a sword. It’s necessary. What I would like to propose is this: let’s us form up the first online community action group. Not anything like MAGA, or March For America. Those kinds of clubs are ok, but I mean a group with real decision making powers that can be made to affect conditions where you live. A group of people whose word is better than money, and whose work ethic could be used to make their community great again.

I think it has to be this way because the task of making America great again is far too large for any one group to accomplish. So what do you say Americans? Is your word good? Have you got the gumption to go out and start shoveling the rubbish? If you do, you’ll see me right beside you, sleeves rolled up, and a big grin on my face. I will next publish a platform that represents the values and goals of such a group. Should this group become a reality, we, together will outline just how this group both in and out of committee. Meeting adjourned!

The Broken Contract

The Trajectory Of The Busted Social Contract
By Charlie Brown

I recently re-read Rousseau’s great work The Social Contract, not because I didn’t get it at first; Rousseau simply argued that the right to govern and rule was not a legacy to be passed from one family member to another. No, I understood and agreed immediately with his notion that the people are sovereign, and that no king is divinely entitled to rule.

I have ancestors who shed blood for that right, and every right thinking Americans heart is captivated by the phrase “we the people”. So I went back and read his book again. You know, to remind myself that we once believed in the right of the people to legislate and enforce the laws that they deemed fit and proper. Not like now, in other words. Once the notion that the only legitimate source of power is the power of the people takes the driver seat it is sort of obvious that might does not make right. Just because “they” can force us to do something does not make us rightfully obliged to submit. This is black and white to me. No shades of gray.

You, dear reader may disagree; that is your right. I remember plenty of people who ridiculed John Lennon for singing about power to the people. I also remember folks protesting the teaching of foreign language in public schools based on the argument that, if the English language was good enough for our lord Jesus Christ, well it was good enough for our children. And who can forget the powerful statement “keep your government hands off of my Medicare”? That one nearly got me to agree, I can tell you.

Now, these people are entitled, not only to their opinions, but to the expression of those opinions; not the least because there is probably some kernel of right in them. But they should not be entitled to govern my actions based on the way they feel. So that’s about it. Don’t trade freedom for slavery. And, oh yeah, property rights should be safeguarded, and legitimate possession of property should be proven by means and proportion of labor. There’s more, but you really should read it yourself. And this ain’t a book report. Sounds good for small groups of people, and in fact, this is how things still work in some small towns. But, what about a federal society?

Well Rousseau deals neatly with that by separating sovereign from government. Self interest would naturally get in the way of the application of laws, so government is separated from sovereign. Listen to this crazy jive: under this plan, Vice Presidents would not be allowed to start foreign wars with resource rich countries and then award their companies no bid contracts to supply the military effort. Whaaaat? Crazy! Oh, and dig this nugget, presidents wouldn’t be able to own companies that profited from trade agreements they arranged with other countries! Now that’s just plain insane! Why, who would bother running in the first place? We’d be stuck with feeble minded idiots like Eisenhower, or Lincoln, the schmuck that ended slavery (long may he rot for his crime).

Alright, so there are a few minor glitches in the expression of the sovereign power of the people, you’ll give me that much I suppose. WTO’s edict that only China may manufacture computers and internet equipment due to their exclusive rights to “rare earth”, an absolutely essential element in making internet compatible chips. I guess you could make a big fuss about a presidential election giving us Tom and Jerry as our only two choices (who doesn’t like Tom and Jerry anyway), a media lamestream and otherwise owned by corporate interests only, my personal favorite, the conversion of the American dream to a terrifying spook house ride where you get off the gondola and head straight to your seventieth birthday wearing a cool Disney costume where you get to dance all day spinning a sign in front of a car dealership; but that’s just nit picky right? Doesn’t that actually sound like a cool way to turn seventy? And, think of the exercise; you can give up your gym membership! That’s why your grandchildren don’t have anything to do with you by the way.

If you don’t like the idea of the social contract, that’s ok. The city of Geneva, Rousseau’s home city burned it after all. Voltaire made a living making fun of the social contract, but then, he was an apologist for monarchism. If you don’t like it, then you cannot really like the constitution though. And, if you don’t like the constitution, why, that’s ok too. Your right to not like it is actually guaranteed by that pesky rag.

Like it or not though, it has been broken. Flying along pretty high due to the social contract, Americans have enjoyed an extraordinary century during which wealth was redistributed from billionaires to the less wealthy, mainly through unions and minimum wage laws, workplace safety rules, crap like that, giving ordinary people incentives to invent and work hard, all the while taking care of our aging parents and the disabled among us, giving us more time and money to build our own dreams. This in turn brought out loyalty in workers, and incentives to gain more competence and standing.

Just when it got broken is unclear. My own belief is that after the west was cleared of troublesome things like outlaws, buffalo, and Indians, wild or otherwise, and the eastern banks had cached most of the gold and silver, it was time to get off the gold standard and base the value of money on raw materials and debt. There had been little need for a strong social contract before that point due to the fact that most of the nation had been living in nature, and each family worked hard simply to stay alive, taking care of their own. Nobody got very old then, and the disabled didn’t last long either.

About this time WWI struck, and fascism, a form of government where corporate monarchs legislated and enforced entirely without regard for the opinion of the people became quite popular. Great men like J. Gould, Henry (never complain, never explain) Ford, Randolph Hearst and the like pressured the stinking socialist unions with righteous violence, maiming and killing those who dared to question their right to rule. Heck, a young MacArthur even led a saber charge into a group of veterans who had the unmitigated gall to march on the White House asking for their separation pay. Not to mention the heroic bombing of striking miners who thought that they should be paid at all. The nerve of those guys!

So I suppose it was when the depression struck, and it looked like America could go under that the billionaires lost a round. Encouraged by his cousin Teddy’s success in creating anti monopoly laws that essentially separated what little money the people had from that belonging to banks and corporate investors, the American people used their constitutional right to vote FDR into the catbird seat. Enraged by this, those heroes of fascism (see above, plus Prescott Bush and some other guys who didn’t have enough money) attempted an actual military coup on the White House. Turns out that general Butler found the task not to his liking, and wound up supporting Roosevelt in the next election.

So I’m thinking that 1933 began a period during which a faltering, but swiftly strengthened social contract began. The truth is, most of us would not be here without it. This is because Rousseau was right; the sovereign cannot apply the law even handedly, resulting in unstable economies with mostly young populations that have very short life expectancies. I recall during George W. Bush’s second term, Rush Limbaugh gloating that FDR was thankfully, dead, and that soon all of his policies would be too. Dittos Rush! It would seem he was right, because now there are very few unions, actual retirement plans for working men and women are practically nonexistent, medical care and insurance are a huge joke unless you are, you know, rich, education is in the crapper, and the banks now use your money to gamble with again! Yeah, we crap canned Glass Steagall!

BooYah! In any case, combined studies show that since Citizens United got dropped on us, zero, that’s right, zero legislation has passed without support from billionaires. The result of this is that our high flying social contract is broken, and we little folk are enjoying what I like to think of as a rapid descent that will fall somewhat short of the runway.

That’s my case. We had a social contract; it can be read pretty much as the bill of rights. It’s outlined nicely in the constitution. We must have hated it, because we have allowed every president since Reagan to attack it. We have loved Limbaugh and the lesser gods of fascism like they were our saviors. Heck, we even let them redefine what it means to be a conservative or a liberal. That bastion of steadfast loyalty Newt the Poot was right; we are useful idiots, and we did hunt liberals with dogs. To extinction. I guess if you made it to the end of this, you might be tough enough for part two. Those of you who read me know I like to do series. So stay tuned for part two. The Social Contract Sabotaged.

Prostitution StoryTime

Tue, 01/29/2019 - 9:12am

We all should embrace inclusiveness in our society. With the diverse nature of America the different cultures, languages, and sexualities must learn to live together in harmony. The recent news about Drag Queen Storytime is a good example of this. Showing children as young as three that there is nothing to fear from a man in a dress opens new worlds to them, and allows them to explore lifestyles previously denied them. In this spirit we must push forward to connect and support segments of our society that have been marginalized by that society.

I give you Prostitution StoryTime! Since the dawn of time the world’s oldest profession has been forced into the shadows while generating income and good will. Children have been told that these people were the very scum of the earth while “daddy” regularly employed them for the stress relief “mommy” could not deliver. This must end.

The Chief Administrator Of The Montrose Library, Ima Slut, told news services that when this idea was brought up it was received with open arms and she hasn’t heard of any negative oral since.

Prostitution Storytime will have two prostitutes come to the library on the last Saturday of the month. They will wear traditional garb, and have a liberal splash of “whore wash” to hand out to the kiddos attending. The little girls will be encouraged to wear the colorful clothing with net stockings should they wish. The event will begin with the reading of two books written by local celebrity prostitute, “Big MaMa” Washington, “I’m Just Too Slutty For School,” and “Do You Wanna See My Rosebuds?”

After that will be a nursery rhyme reading including the classic “Jack and Jill.”

Jack and Jill went up the hill
They each had a buck and a quarter,
When they came down
Jack lost his frown
And Jill had two bucks fifty

From there the children will be instructed about health concerns. With details such as personal hygiene and even a game called “Put The Condom On The Donkey.” All the while the children will be reminded that prostitution is but one way to make a living and that they live in the community and know, and respect the children’s families, especially their daddies.

The day will end with “Dance Time” with the two prostitutes dancing with the little boys. Showing the children everything from the “Twist” to “Twerking,” the prostitutes will share the rich history of the American club culture. Of course the little girls will not be left out. They will be taught how to employ a tried and tested device known well by many young men, while chanting the old Carlos Mencia classic:

If you don’t like to study
And school is not your goal
Then change your name to “Candy”
And learn to work a pole

by Bill The Butcher with a tip of the hat to Charlie Brown

We’re GONNA Be Friends

Mon, 01/28/2019 - 8:24am

We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and as clear as the American Constitution.The heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights and equal opportunities, whether we are going to treat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated. If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available, if he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him, if, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place? Who among us would then be content with the counsels of patience and delay?( John F Kennedy)

What gave American talk show host James “Doc” Greene the right to protest a monthly transgender reading program to children in a Houston Public Library? And, what gave the librarian the right to have Mr. Greene arrested while doing so? The short answer is that it is the same right that gives those inclined to do so the right to protest Colin Kaepernick’s open protests of police violence.

Despite the comparison however, these two cases, are quite different. Ironically, the those laws granting Mr. Kaepernick the right to kneel publicly, are the same laws which allow public protest which voice a view which dissents. Thanks to our constitution and the wisdom of courts long gone by, it is only in underdeveloped banana republics, communist countries and dictatorships, that a person’s right to freely express their views is denied. Well, that and the city of Houston.

This is a story of how a tiny minority of fundamentalists with a questionable agenda used resources paid for by all of us to carry on an activity aimed exclusively at their interests. This is the improbable tale of how a public library of all places became an open window into the high jingo that is the how of why the narrow interests of a few become the burden which must be carried by the many. Making a long story short is done by removing the details; useful at times, but not often, because as we all know, the devil is in the details.

Detail one: A program was adopted in the Montrose branch of the Houston Public Library best described by its title, ‘Drag Queen Story Time’. A byline Ken Byrd wrote, “As the title suggests, it involves drag queens reading stories and participating in activities with a group of children and their caretakers.”(The Houston Press 08/25/2017.) The story from the Houston Press goes on to quote the Library’s youth services manager, Kallie Benes as to the goal of program, which was to instill a sense of love and acceptance in our children, encouraging them to be true to themselves. (Instructing them to what being true to themselves means?) There has not been such a similarly tragic failure of the imagination since Vietnam. How could it possibility have eluded the imagination of Ms. Benes and other persons upstream of this decision that there might be a dissenting voice? Ms. Benes is further quoted in the Press article as having said, “At this point I haven’t received any criticism, I have heard only positive things by word of mouth”. So your call, Nixon or Rumsfeld? I think we just caught us a devil by the tail! But wait there’s more! Ms. Benes goes on to describe the first story time event as Mala-Niña and something that calls itself “Blackberri,” both celebrities in the Montrose gay community reading “Chrysanthemum”, and “I’m absolutely too small for school.” Followed by a sing along with the song “We’re gonna be friends,” which sounds more like an order as opposed to a suggestion. Mr. Byrd enthusiastically describes the event to be one where “Expectedly the readers will look bright and colorful, and attendees are encouraged to come dressed up for the occasion if they so choose.”

Where to begin? Let us begin with that last bit. When did you ever hear of an invitation to an affair that defined itself as Black Tie, or informal, your choice? It is absurd to expect anyone reading the story to come to the affair out of costume without expecting some form of ostracism by the group. As to the use of tambourines and cowbells during the sing alongs alluded to earlier in the piece, allegedly used to teach children about rhythm, I can only say, children dressed in drag beating primitive instruments in a dance with adults dressed in drag, well, what could possibly go wrong?

If you were fighting a CPS case against an accusation of sexual impropriety with a child, do you think a disclosure that you and the child were dancing

The librarian who had Doc Greene arrested

together in drag singing songs about how you guys are going to redefine your boundaries is going to help? As Billy would say, ‘swat them bees.’

Detail two: How on God’s green earth did this ever happen? It surpasses the imagination that branch librarians can implement any kind of event in the library absent the consent of someone in that librarians chain of command who is an elected official. Certainly no such program could find it’s way into a public school without being scrutinized by the school board, and likely many other people who would have had the final say. I searched high and low for legislation that prohibits the library from using truth induction as a means of establishing sexual orientation in minors. The news for those parents who wish to bring their children up in a world free of special interests influence the news is mixed. The good news is, no school or public library may exhibit any material whatsoever of a political nature on their grounds, much less have storytelling, sing alongs, and costumed meetings. See section 255.003 of the Texas Ethics Commission’s guide to the use of school districts resources. The bad news is that such proselytizing is actually protected for those who would lure your kids into a sexual lifestyle by the lawmakers you helped to elect. See “libraries respond: Drag Queen Story Hour”. It’s on google. Totally easy to find.

In this delightful journey you will discover that while you have been asleep, the American Library Association has been colluding with such authors as Michelle Tea. If your parenting style is to expose your pre-teen to queer culture, feminism (not to be confused with women’s rights), race, class and prostitution, then send the ALA a donation! But hey, if that isn’t enough to bring out the old checkbook, there’s more.

The truly dismal fact is that the ALA anticipated “pushback” from communities and responded by building and organizing “resources” and encouraging those who know about them, and I’m betting that does not include you, to use them. In other words, I don’t think it at all unlikely that Doc Greene, an ordinary citizen who just wanted to make his side of the issue known, walked into a deliberately set trap. Can you hear the devil yet? Well, how about this? There is not one single provision in the Children’s Internet Protection Act, CIPA, which offers any protection to children from proselytizing influences from alternative lifestyle organizations like NAMBA say. Is you been baptized? No? Ok, one last detail then.

Detail three: It turns out that the rules set forth by the library protect Doc’s first amendment rights. Yet another tragic fact is that, while the very thing Doc Greene wishes to protest takes place in a public building, the library’s rules of conduct prohibit any behavior which might result in Doc’s being allowed to express himself. Therein dear readers lies the final hiding place for the devil, and a tourists guide to how we got to be owned by the one percent.

Members of the LBGQTGTV community have one and only one thing in common, that being that they are all alternative lifestyles. But for all of that diversity within their community, they cooperate with each other where their common interests lie. It’s like dogs, mice, cats, bunnies and carrots all learned to work together to support animal rights and put an end to genetically modified organisms. Think of what the rest of us could do with that….sorry, now I’m talking to a wall. Anyway, the real controversy over the arrest of Doc Greene is best answered with a question; Since the notion of having a transvestite party and inviting the local children to attend at the public park would have failed public approval by an avalanche, even in a place like the Montrose area of Houston, how did the public library come to circumvent the wishes of so many parents with so little trouble? The answer lies on the dark side of the moon, where evidently all legislation now exists.

Doc was the only person protesting the event who was arrested; that is because Doc was the organizational focus of the protest. The cops were at the library in force waiting for him. The “resources” provided by the ALA managed to conspire with one another to spy on, target, and then arrest Doc Greene. The Houston Police served as a defacto private police force in the service of those “resources.”

Should there be reconciliation for all oppressed minorities in America? Well, if you Believe in the Preamble to our Constitution, then yes! Should we protect our children, and their right to select and participate in whatever sexual lifestyle they will engage in as adults? Again, yes! But we should NOT be allowed to use either the oppressed nor our children to be used as footballs in the process of working out how this is going to become, and we should certainly not allow what has become aptly known as the Deep State to make those decisions for us!

Because You’re a Nigger

Sun, 01/27/2019 - 5:18am

Back when I was in the sixth grade there was gonna be a party. It was 1962, and integration had just hit Texas. Now, for the grown ups this was a very big deal, but for us kids it didn’t amount to much. First off, in Killeen we didn’t have enough schools to segregate much anyway, unless you counted half days. Half days was where half the kids would go to school in the morning, and the other half in the afternoon. I guess that counted as segregation, though they really didn’t separate us along racial lines, with only about twenty or so black kids being all we had.

But, there was this party. I don’t remember what the party was all about. It wasn’t gonna be at school. Hell, I was too poor white trash so I wasn’t going anyway. School lunch was the high point of my day, and this was long before Michelle Obama came along and screwed it up. Why we’d have chicken fried steak on Thursday, and SECONDS!

So, I was coming down the hall when I heard a teacher talking to another student around the corner. The teacher was talking in a muffled tone, the little girl repeating, “Yes ma’am, yes ma’am.” This was old time Texas when kids said things like, “Yes ma’am.” They were discussing the upcoming party, and I couldn’t make most of the conversation out, but one part came through loud and clear. “So, you understand you can’t come because you’re a nigger.”

“Yes ma’am.”

That kinda stuck in my mind . . . for the last fifty-five years. You see, we were kids. Me and the little girl were roughly about the same age and height. She liked chicken fried steak, too, and her name was Becky. This was back before black folk started naming their kids all them African names. And she was cute. But, the teacher had made it clear that even though Becky could eat in the lunch room there were still social lines drawn when it came to certain functions.

There was this librarian. Down in Houston. Now Houston is a little like putting L. A. in a sewer if you wanna know the truth. God knows why anybody would want to live down there, but folks do, and it’s a free country. Well, as things would have it this here librarian takes it upon herself to have a party. Transgender reading time. She

The librarian who had Doc Greene arrested

set up a special room. Then she put out word that on a certain Saturday a sexually confused person would come and sit in that room to read to kids that weren’t quite sure if they should stand or squat when they pee. I guess they’d read Jack and Jill, but with special attention to the fact that the guest reader was a hairy legged man in a dress. Guess he/she would be reading Jack and Jack.

Setting this apart from the rest of the library would segregate, and protect the little kids who had leanings they didn’t understand, and protect them from other little kids who didn’t understand either. You really have to get into the eight year old mind set. I was ten before I realized that Donald Duck didn’t wear any pants, and most likely was shacking up with Daisy Duck. I WAS strangely attracted to Tinker Bell, though I really couldn’t understand why. One thing I didn’t need was a man dressed as a woman reading to me and telling me this was an alternative lifestyle I could embrace should I choose. And I didn’t need to be put off in a special room because I was different from all the other kids. I couldn’t be with them in the main part of the library because in my own way I was a nigger!

Death to America through Southern Border

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 3:10pm

https://wordpress.com/post/frankaquila.wordpress.com/415

According to the United Nations, 97 percent of illegal aliens come to America across the 2,000-mile Mexico-U.S. border; but only 20 percent of those who cross the border illegally are caught.  Of that 20 percent, 30 percent already have a criminal record in America.  While some come for a better life, the Mexican drug cartels control the Mexican border aligning themselves with an estimated 70,000 MS-13 gang members in America according to FBI records.  According to the National Gang Intelligence Center, “Federal, state, and local law enforcement officials are observing a growing nexus between the Mexican drug cartels, illegal alien smuggling rings, and US-based gangs.  It is estimated that criminals earn billions of dollars each year by smuggling aliens through Mexico into the United States.”  According to Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu, “The Mexican drug cartels have almost toppled the Mexican Government and they are crossing into Arizona at will.”  “Their drug trade is a forty billion dollar a year industry.”  He continues that “Mexican warlords” are the “cause of mass murders, execution-style slayings, sexual assaults, kidnappings, shootings, armed robberies, burglaries – all tied to illegal immigration” in America.

According to the Heritage Foundation, 2,800 lbs of fentanyl was seized by Border Patrol in 2018, enough to kill the entire population of the United States.  However 91 deaths per day in America are related to illegal fentanyl, which 90 percent comes across into America through the southern border.  This does not take into account so many other illegal drugs coming into America.  Sheriff Babeu stated that deputies “are apprehending guns and high tech communication equipment from cartel operatives.”

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in a fire fight against illegal aliens carrying AK-47 assault rifles.  He is one of 127 Border Patrol Agents killed by illegal aliens.  Estimates of Americans murdered by illegal aliens annually range from 4,380 based on data collected from prisons, news reports, and independent research to 15 per day  or 5,475 annually  according to the Government Accountability Office (GOA).  The GOA statistics suggest that illegal aliens are responsible for 22 to 37 percent of all murder in America while only being “3.52 to 8.25 percent of the population.  This does not take into consideration of unsolved or unreported murders considering the advanced drug cartels and sophisticated MS-13 gangs. There is also an estimated 13 Americans killed per day by drunk illegal alien drivers.  While there are an estimated 42,636 road deaths per year, a report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Study found 20 percent of fatal accidents involve a driver without a valid driver’s license, with a large percentage being illegal aliens.

The GOA also states there are 9 Kidnappings per day (3,285 annually) and 43 sexual offenses (15,695 annually) in America.  Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrants sex offenders in the America who have had an average of four victims each.  Seventy percent of women from Central America have been raped while others have been forced into sex-trafficking by drug cartels and MS-13.  Santana Batiz Aceves was charged with 47 counts of rape based on DNA evidence despite being deported twice in California.  He also faces current charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, sexual abuse of a minor, giving police false information, providing false documents, and trespassing.

Of the most wanted criminals in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Albuquerque, 75 percent are illegal aliens.  Rolando Mota-Campos stated after his 11th arrest – for crimes ranging from abduction, assault, four DUI’s, vehicular assault, robbery, and domestic violence stated,  “United States is stupid….I come back every time.”  Mota-Campos has been deported three times and vowed to return again.

Even the liberal Huffinton Post writer Chris Kirkham recently noted, “more than 60 percent of all federal criminal convictions have been for immigration-related crimes, federal data show.”

The House Judiciary Committee and Department of Homeland Security show 276,412 reported criminal charges against illegal aliens for a variety of crimes.  Yet, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats state there is no crisis on the border.  They have also flipped flopped since they voted for “barriers” in 2006 and 2014 and Nancy Pelosi even called it “a basis principle” in 2013.  So why has there been a change of heart?

During the trial of drug lord El Chapo, the Los Angeles Times reported it was revealed that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took a $100 million dollar bribe from El Chapo.  While the Mexican government is corrupt, Nancy Pelosi met with President Nieto on May 3, 2016 along with Congressmen Beto O’Rourke and Henry Cuellar.  However, Nancy Pelosi refused to meet with Angel Parents, whose children were murdered by illegal aliens.

The drug cartels have control of many areas in Mexico.  So could the drug cartels and MS-13 also be aligned with the Democrat party and Pelosi and therefore controlling many areas in America?  The Democrat party now controls all of the congressional districts along the southern border, which could be the reason for their call for “no border crisis”; but statistics of the death coming to America through the southern border shows otherwise.

How To Spot Fake News For Dummies

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 3:05pm
How Do You Spot Fake News?
  1. First you need to keep up with a story for month or two, to determine the key points that keep surfacing from both parties, and from independent sources. If you don’t have time to broadly understand the issue DON’T READ IT AT ALL, DON’T RE-POST IT.   This is not an endorsement of remaining uninformed, but if you’re not informed, don’t vote.  Democracy demands objective, unselfish, informed voters wary of politicians buying their votes.
  2. Look hardest for whistle-blowers risking their jobs and pensions.  Edward Assuange, and the recent spate of CIA agents exposing the fraud of Russian Collusion are good examples.
  3. If the reporter uses definitive descriptions of…
    1. Negative personal appearance
    2. or describes offensive manners of the person they are reporting on,
    3. or describes how everyone doesn’t like the person they are reporting on,
      ..these are hearsay and subjective references which “black flag” the report.  Don’t read it.
  4. Look for named witnesses, not hidden.  Hidden witnesses can be ok, but deserve far more scrutiny.
  5. Watch for the reports which assume a truth at the start, without explanation: Like assuming Donald Trump is widely unlikable or confused, after he was a darling of TV and the New York City social scene for decades; ran a huge, complicated businesses; and wrote a number of books. It’s obviously a political accusation, in such cases, easy to prove, just like saying Obama or Bush was a moron.  Reporters should not be discussing if someone is liked or if their idea is unpopular.  Journalism was a fact-based profession for years, but not now.
    “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” -Orwell
  6. Multiple, confirmed, detailed testimonies are powerful, even if some details appear in conflict. It is normal for eyewitness accounts to vary and have detailed observations.  They must lack in feelings and emotional words, except where appropriate.
  7. Consistency of testimony is valuable, but perfect correlation is a red light.
  8. If it is a theory or paper, check for “Sources of Error” style challenges at the end of the report. If they don’t exist – the paper should be considered a likely lie.  If the proponents of such theory don’t know the sources of error, they are deceivers – all theories are judged primarily on sources of error details and conflicts in the theory.
  9. Independent conclusions from different unconnected sources are VERY powerful evidence of truth, if each conclusion is derived from different data sources.
  10. Watch for “science” divided by party lines – these are fraud sciences: Economics and global temperature predictions are the most prominent, now.
  11. Avoid news sources who meet secretly with the DNC (proven in Wikileaks), or repeat the same stories as those sources report, like NPR.
  12. Look for news sources that tell both sides of the story. Liberals brazenly bury the fact that Fox News presents the liberal side of stories as well, but when I turn on leftist news – I ONLY get their leftist slant and view, and the reports are eerily similar, as if they were coordinated presentation, consistent with meeting to plan news, not independent reporting of salient facts of concern.
  13. Source reputation – even the New York Times prints the truth occasionally, like reporting early on about the Clinton Foundation raking in cash from Russia, while selling them Uranium!
    https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html
  14. Collusion signs – look for all the news sources simultaneously amping-up a story like the Kavanaugh lies: No witness corroborated that story, and 2 denied it.  Yet it was reported as honest testimony in violation of a century of best practices journalism ethics:  Don’t report a story unless you have 2 corroborating reports from dependable sources.
  15. Check the math, if it’s a technical issue. Global warming FAILS numerous math challenges.  The promoters won’t discuss it – they are unable to argue with Socratic conflict-based analysis discussions.  It is a fraud.  If the person promotes Global Warming, all their advocacy should be highly questioned, because they are pushing at least one easily provable lie – and they appear to know it is lie, by how they answer questions with prevarication artifacts.
  16. Ask trusted experts you know. NONE OF THEM can be democrats or liberals, they lie about everything and pass on information ROUTINELY without fact checking. I know because I tried to talk policy with them for 20 years, and ALL of them routinely pass on information they know is a false rumor.  Republicans lie too, but mostly it is only about the nations’ borrowing being healthy when Reagan, Bush or Trump does it.  Conservative-leaning writers are much more likely to present source data which is confirmable, and will OFTEN discuss flaws in their information graciously, both are signs of honesty.
  17. Those whom you see discussing flaws in their position amicably, are most likely honest.  Those energetically avoiding flaws in their position, are deceivers.
  18. Check the data sources. But, even the government economic tables are tainted now, Obama began changing the old CBO records while he was in office.  “Revisions,” which always went in the left’s favor.   Challenge the provider of the table to questions about what supports the correlation in the graph, if they are using a correlation argument.  There must but solid causal arguments, along with correlation, to be plausible.   For insance: Both liberals and Republicans claim more debt grows the economy – it’s NOT TRUE – because the debt gets counted in the GDP.  Correlation is due to GDP equation manipulation, not success in growing the private sector.  Government spending is not private sector growth, that is government growth – the opposite of GDP.
  19. If you can ask questions, ask promoters of questionable news “Columbo questions,” which expose how false claims awareness in the material.  For instance, your Certified Financial Advisor should be able to comfortably discuss why health insurance is weighted only approximately 1% in the Consumer Price Index, when health care spending is 20% of economy.  If they don’t acknowledge the issue of such wide disparity of “consumer spending weight” and GDP percent, then they are simply hiding something bigger.  For deeper study:
    http://www.teapartytribune.com/2018/05/09/ignored-american-dumpster-fire-inflation/
  20. Economics is a political science now – the liberal “economists” are pushing an easily provable false premise: Government fabrication of “borrowed” money grows an economy.  Avoid all economics articles from liberal sources, they are full of lies.   Recent studies of Economics papers indicated 50% of them were not repeatable science.   For further study: http://www.teapartytribune.com/2015/10/14/the-red-pill-economics-exposed-as-fraud-science/

The Unspoken Truth Behind Trump v. Pelosi

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 3:03pm

“I will do the Address when the Shutdown is over because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition, and importance of the House chamber.”
– President Trump on Nancy Pelosi denying him the national platform for delivering the State of the Union Address

He caved…or did he. She won this round…not really. “We the People” lost on both accounts… unfortunately true.

And so this media driven battle is publicly being fought over a wall…a much needed wall to keep our country safe from the illegal invaders Democrats invited in…while in actuality this battle is two-fold as it also encompasses the 700,000+ DACA recipients and garnering their votes. The last thing this battle is over is the partial government shutdown…media and Pelosi bloviations to the contrary.

So as Nancy Pelosi continues to spew out the lie that she and the Democrats care about the 800,000 nonessential government workers still on furlough, the truth is that their loyalties lie not with those workers who are into paycheck number two not being received, but with the 700,000+ DACA recipients residing in our country today…illegally residing that is albeit through no fault of their own. And it’s over those 700,000+ now of voting age young adults that has Pelosi denying President Trump the time honored tradition of giving the Constitutionally mandated State of the Union Address at the place it has been given since the days of Woodrow Wilson…in the halls of Congress before a joint session of Congress.

A ploy to save face perhaps, as Nancy Pelosi surely did not want to be seated behind President Trump when he exposed for all the nation…for all the world…to hear and see what a two-faced, manipulating, obstructionist she and her party have turned out to be.

Using the furloughed workers as but a diversion to deflect us away from the truth about the importance the DACA recipients are to her party, Pelosi has made it clear that illegals…especially those DACA illegals…do indeed take precedence over American citizens…at least for her party that is. Zeroing in on those brought to America as infants, young children or as teenagers by parents who knowingly and willingly crossed our borders illegally…the fact is that under the Obama initiated DACA program these children, now young adults, had every chance to take a “pathway to citizenship” upon reaching a certain age. And while some did indeed take the “pathway” offered by the DACA program, thus righting at least in part, for them, their parents wrong, most did not for it was and still is far more advantageous to keep sponging off our hard earned taxpayer dime by their continuing to take all the “free stuff”…college educations included…most illegals are afforded once on American soil.

Continuing the “gimmee-gimmee” mentality of their parents, the bulk of these so called “dreamers” love to publicly protest and demand rights they actually don’t have while they whine that this is the only country they know. And while for many that might be the case, what the majority of “dreamers” don’t realize is that they are but pawns being used by the Democrats…Democrats who could care less about them or their plight…but who care solely about those 700,000+ “dreamers” equating into 700,000+ most likely Democrat party votes…enough votes to turn almost any election in the Democrats favor…it simply all boils down to that.

Remember, as long as the “dreamers” remain in legal limbo per se…as long as the “dreamers” are the recipients of “free stuff”…the old adage that no one bites the hand that feeds them surely comes into play…the “dreamers” remain a valuable commodity that Nancy Pelosi and crew will continue to use as leverage against President Trump, and they will do so even knowing that Republicans are wise to their game. Wise yes, but sadly coupled with a bit of cowardliness for no Republican has dared to challenge the nightmare that is political correctness to say the bottom line truth that for Democrats it’s all about the “dreamers”…and of course the “illegals”…votes.

If only President Trump would publicly state this truth for only then would the ongoing battle be laid to rest as the Democrats and the media would collectively have a major meltdown for truth is something they are in no way prepared to handle…as they run head first into a brick wall…pun ever so intended.

And so it’s over the “dreamers” and the “illegals” to be a bit less of a degree…not the 800,000 furloughed workers…especially the “dreamers” and their potential 2020 election changing votes…that has Pelosi demanding that President Trump reopen the partial government shutdown before they will even consider inviting him to speak before Congress or allotting him even one bloody dime of funding for what would be the denying Democrats even more votes…wall.

A temporary fix to DACA is what Trump proposed and that is not acceptable as Democrats demand nothing less than a permanent solution…a solution that equates to amnesty for the “dreamers” thus garnering Democrats a major boost to their voting rolls. And the Democrats are willing to throw the 800,000 government workers now furloughed under the bus to get those coveted votes.

But first we must understand the legalities or lack thereof regarding both the “dreamers” and the “illegals” in general, and how both come into play in this standoff…in this now tit-for-tat political game.

Briefly, some legal scholars say that because the Constitution’s provisions apply to “personhood” and “jurisdiction” and use the term “people” or “person” instead of “citizen” that all its laws apply to every and anyone physically on U.S. soil, whether or not they are a U.S. citizen. And some of those same legal scholars go so far as to say that “illegals” are afforded the basic rights “We the People” have under the Bill of Rights, such as the freedom of religion and speech, the right to due process, and most importantly equal protection under the law.

However, contrary to what the Democrats and their legal eagles say, “undocumented immigrants”“illegals”…are truly not privy to all the rights held by we citizens, two key rights of which are the fact that “illegals” cannot vote in state or in national elections…even though we know well that in certain states they most assuredly do…and that they are subject to our immigration laws whether they or their Democrats enablers like it or not. In specific, while the Constitution does not provide an affirmative grant of the right to vote, a series of amendments…as in the 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th amendments…all clearly list the qualifications for voting being for American “citizens” alone…with “citizens” being the operative word.

Also, as per other legal scholars, the executive branch…as in President Trump…does have “broad authority” to determine whether those we call “illegals” have a right to even be in our country. And until “illegals” have passed through immigration control and gone through “due process,” they are not technically nor legally on U.S. soil “thanks to a legal fiction or counterintuitive legal understanding that carves out an exception to the normal rule,” so says Jennifer Gordon, a professor of immigration law at Fordham University Law School.

And again whether the Democrats like it or not President Trump can legally close our southern border or any of America’s borders if need be, with his legal justification being found within Section 215 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)…an act which clearly states that the president can do whatever he must in order to “safeguard the nation and its citizenry.” And that is what President Trump is trying to do with his wanting to build the wall for he knows that while a wall will not keep everyone out who wants in, it surely will slow down the number of “illegals” who are coming here solely for their share of the Democrats promised “free stuff” in exchange for their votes.

Remember, nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the president cannot protect our nation’s borders with a wall for nowhere in the Constitution is a wall even mentioned let alone alluded to. This means that in the end Trump will get that wall built one legal way or another while the Democrats will continue using the plight of the “dreamers” and the government workers currently furloughed as their way to try and manipulate President Trump into reopening the 25% of the government currently shutdown while at the same time working behind closed doors to see that the much needed wall does not get built.

And Pellosi’s using the “dreamers” as one of her leveraging tools against both President Trump and his latest compromise proposal is not a wise idea for the Obama 2012 initiated DACA program is in and of itself illegal. How so…simply, Obama did not go through Congress to initiate the DACA program, something he most assuredly should have done. In fact, Obama himself has in the past stated that he did lack the authority to grant such a “broad carve-out from deportation,” yet he did it anyway. However, DACA went uncontested in the courts until last year, when Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton initiated a lawsuit arguing that DACA was illegal.

Judge Andrew S. Hanen, in his ruling, found that Obama did indeed exceed his Constitutional powers when he created a program that basically granted a “broad amnesty from deportation” to an entire class of people, in this case the so-called “dreamers.” Stating in his decision that he was bound by precedent in a 2015 case that struck down a similar but broader Obama-era amnesty program…as in DAPA…a program encompassing four million parents who crossed the border illegally but who have U.S. citizen or legal immigrant children, as well as expanding the DACA program itself. Stating there was little “practical difference” between DACA and DAPA, Judge Hanen found that if DAPA was illegal, then DACA was just as “likely illegal” as well.

And on appeal, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also ruled that DACA, with its “broad attempts to create immigration policy through deferred action” violated the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

And this ruling led the Democrats to once again play tit-for-tat by using the argument that several other courts ruled that Trump’s original wanting of a DACA phaseout is just as likely illegal. And when you add both musings together the takeaway becomes that while Obama’s granting what amounts to amnesty is indeed illegal so too, according to some, is Trump’s past efforts to phase said amnesty out. And this translates into something we have known all along…the solution to the “dreamers” issue must come from Congress, as per the Constitution, but with Nancy Pelosi blocking every solution President Trump proposes has allowed us to reach the point we find ourselves at today…and it’s a point where the Supreme Court might or might not take on the case of DACA.

So, as I write this article many Republicans are angry at President Trump for what they perceive as his caving to Nancy Pelosi regarding the State of the Union Address. But what these folks forget is that the battle our president is fighting with Pelosi is not over a venue or a date for his giving the Address, but is a battle for getting the funding for the much needed wall v. the Democrats garnering 700,000+ “dreamer” votes…enough votes to possibly turn all future elections in the Democrats favor. And that alone is why Nancy Pelosi is demanding a permanent solution to DACA along with them being granting an expedited “pathway” to become citizens as amendments to the Constitution clearly state that only citizens can vote.

Nancy Pelosi is using the current plight of the 800,000 temporarily furloughed government workers as but a ploy and a diversion to reach her intended goal, but I have a feeling that President Trump knows her plan well as well as he knows that even the State of the Union Address can wait…the wall cannot. So the naysayers on our side need to cut him some slack for Trump knows well what he’s doing…maybe even soon declaring a “national emergency” and appropriating the needed wall funds…Nancy Pelosi be damned.

CigarBox – Of The Land

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 7:41am

 

Michael was nearing a turning point in his life. He had some big choices before him. He told his mother one day, “I don’t know if I want a four-wheel drive truck or to just get married!” Claudette just stood there in her dyslexic perception of the world and tried to take in that statement. How does one compute such a statement? How does one understand, except to say that this is the ultimate link between the child and the man? Michael had always been his mother’s pet. The other boys had taken a back seat to him. Buddy and Tommy, her stepsons had always been very close to their father, Claudette’s second husband, Bill. Michael’s younger brother George was too addicted to food to even worry about it. He stayed in his room and out of the way until dinner, when he would make a quick appearance, eat, and retreat back to his room again. The older sister, the adopted Angela had simply left for boarding school, and later went to college on the insurance money her father had left her to avoid the hassle of competing with Mike’s hold on his mother. While the family became more and more dysfunctional, Claudette just knew that Michael would be something if she just propped him up enough.

The inevitable consequence of this was the obvious fact that Michael was not very mature. He couldn’t put off personal pleasure for five minutes. He would regularly sneak into the kitchen of the big house and eat everything in sight. When all of the boys entered into puberty, he was the one most often in the bathroom with the door locked while the others complained to their parents about his behavior. Claudette’s husband grew tired of explaining, and simply ignored the boy. Buddy whipped on him at every opportunity, and Tommy, while more sympathetic than Buddy, knew that Michael was extremely hedonistic.

He’d been carrying on his affair with June for a number of months now. He was addicted to her body all the while thinking he was mastering this relationship, but it reality it was June, herself, who orchestrated it. The driving force behind this was to “be” married, and not much more. Somehow, if the marriage occurred then everything would be all right; everything would work out. This is the dream of the little Texas girls that drift through high school, that somehow a marriage will come along that will make everything else make sense, but in point of fact it almost never does. Babies are born, divorces happen, boys leave their “wives” to “find” their teenage years they somehow “missed” and the babies grow up to be little Texas girls who think that somehow a marriage would make it all work out!

Michael had another woman in his life, Claudette. He had grown accustomed to her picking him up even before he fell. Mentally he was too young to be thinking about being married, but he was thinking about it. It was on his mind, and his momma could buy him anything he wanted. Now he wanted either a truck, or June; either “toy” would be acceptable. Enter into the mix June’s mother, and stepfather, Ray. While her mother was not all that panicked by the advent of a wedding, Ray was a man who worked construction in the hot Texas sun every day, and would be more than happy to tear Michael’s heart out over his little “angel!” June was everything to Ray. She was everything pure and good to him. There are some things worth killing for and probably the only thing that saved Michael’s physical life was the fact that Ray stood in awe of Claudette all because she was in real estate and thus he perceived her as rich, which indeed she was. At his level anyone who did not collect a paycheck every Friday, and wasn’t on welfare somehow had to be “rich.” He was correct in assuming that Claudette could destroy his livelihood, which indeed she would have if her precious Michael were threatened!

Claudette, on the other hand had other ideas for him. She saw him finishing high school, and going on to college, perhaps in Austin. Destined to attend the University of Texas. After graduation, he would take the three real estate classes mandatory to sit for the state real estate exam, and then he’d move into the family real estate business where he would stay until he died. Of course, he’d marry some nice young lady from the Bend with equal education, and an equal interest in the family business.

Rays perception of Claudette’s wealth was justified because Claudette was rich! Looking at her son that day she remembered when she’d first come to the little desert community from Tennessee. She had a high school education and little more than that. She’d left everything back in Memphis after the death of her brother. She’d filed for divorce and made her life in the little desert town just off the main road. She’d never really known what had drawn her to the town, or Texas at all for that matter, but she’d felt a compulsion to come. A vision she’d never revealed that told her how to get there. All this was seventeen years ago, when Michael was two and his younger brother was six months old. In the nearby towns, malls were sprouting, and communities growing. She went to work for a builder named Bill as a sales representative. It was a new career. New! Ha! She’d had no career before that. She’d been a factory worker in Tennessee. She’d worked two jobs to make ends meet while her worthless, fat, red-faced husband ate everything in sight. Bill introduced her to a completely different world. She had her own two sons, and her brother’s daughter, Angie whom she’d adopted after her sister- in-law, the widow of her brother, had died of breast cancer. They lived in a mobile home out on the edge of town. Bill was divorced with two boys of his own, Buddy and Tommy. One thing led to another, and one day they went into the judge’s office and got married during lunch.

She moved into Bill’s old, dusty ranch-style home. Her husband was a builder, but he couldn’t sell penicillin in a V. D. clinic. Claudette had that knack. A lifetime of “making do” had made her a natural at convincing people to take what she had to offer. Still, she needed to get her real estate license. Her new husband had his broker’s license and as long as she sold only for this one builder, the laws of the state of Texas allowed her to do so, but to move into the areas that she wanted she had to have her license. This meant she had to pass the test for it, and that was the problem.

Claudette couldn’t read her own name! She was hopelessly dyslexic! She’d memorized her way thorough high school, actually returning again and again until she graduated at the tender age of twenty- one years. Her first husband had told her family that she was actually retarded because she couldn’t read and the fact that she stumbled over her words as she spoke. Her speech was an endless array of slang and half words. She’d confuse words and once referred to condominiums as condoms! Her new husband read all the real estate books into a cassette tape and she’d listen to them in her car every day. Bill, being a broker himself, was very familiar with the real estate books and in addition to that he understood Claudette’s way of thinking and more than that her understanding. He could explain the books as he read and this took her a long way toward eventually passing the real estate exam. Taking the three weekend courses were no big deal because a person who was comatose could probably pass them. For two days, they taught you the answers for the test on the third day. She had to take the state real estate test thirteen times in order to pass it. The letters danced across the page of the test document, and she eventually just took it so many times that she couldn’t make any more mistakes.

She began to sell homes in the little town and she and her husband developed a fine business with a good reputation. The years rolled by and they built the business up as far as it could be built in the little desert community. They would frequently slip away to a spot out at the edge of town where the river took a turn that looked like a horseshoe. Like all west Texas rivers it had a sandy bottom and there were sand bars all over the place. They’d lay a pallet down, eat their chicken or sandwiches, and enjoy each other’s company. The land belonged to an old rancher who no longer ranched it and had let it go considerably. The land had been in his family for generations, but he had lost interest since the death of his wife, and his housekeeper, June’s mother, Barbara had moved out and got married. As they enjoyed lunch there over and over again Claudette began to notice that the ranch was in need of upkeep. All the cows were long gone and the ranch house was in extreme disrepair.

Claudette was frankly amazed that anyone could still live in the house. She knew that old man Stillwell, the owner, could not be up on things as far as keeping up any financial obligations on the ranch if the physical condition of the house was this bad. One day Juan Sanchez came into the little real estate office and began asking questions about land in the area. During the conversation he asked if the Stillwell Ranch was for sale. Claudette checked around and told him that to her knowledge it was not for sale. Sanchez mentioned that he’d heard the taxes were stacking up on the place. The rancher didn’t want to pay the taxes, and in fact had prepared to move out of the dilapidated old shack he used to call a ranch house before his wife died, and into an apartment in town to live out his days on his social security. The wheels began to turn in Claudette’s head. In a flash of brilliance she realized that this was the reason she’d been drawn to the area in the first place! In a single moment of time the idea that was to become known of as the Bend formed itself in her mind. Sanchez had planted a seed that would blossom into a mighty oak.

She knew how large the ranch was. It had been passed down for generations, and this old man was the sole heir to it now, having no children by his wife. Claudette discussed buying the place from the old man, but Bill told her the idea was not feasible because the sheer size of the track would place it in the two hundred thousand dollar mark and they could never secure financing on a parcel that large. It is hard to sell land in Texas if the buyer doesn’t have ready capital, and though Bill and Claudette made a good living, they did not have that kind of money and besides, they weren’t sure if Stillwell would even consider selling the family acreage to them. Combine that with the fact that Claudette had a plan, and it wasn’t raising cattle and watching the grass grow. She was a Memphis girl, and try as she might that part of her wouldn’t die. She knew that there was a big world outside of this sandy nowhere, and that if people had the seclusion that the area offered, combined with comfortable living, there just might be a future in west Texas after all! Claudette had been in real estate for a little while now, and she had seen the small, flat homes that the locals built. She had a vision of something more. A community of mansions, all nestled by the only river in the area, all resting comfortably under the Texas sun. She could stand on the sand after eating her lunch and look out at the Stillwell ranch and imagine all the buildings that would be there someday. If old man Stillwell had an inkling of this he’d go to someone else and try to do it on his own. That would put him back into the prime of life for sure!

Stillwell had seen her at the catfish house, but knew her only as “the real estate lady,” and he, like everyone else in town, knew she was divorced! That stigma followed her down from Memphis. Being urban she hadn’t thought it was such a bad thing but when she found herself in this simmered down environment she quickly discovered that a divorced woman was a bit under the covers so to speak in a place where gossip is the main pastime. By the time she found this out it was too late because the story was out. At any rate, she’d not be able to do business with Stillwell because of this lack of respect, and it was one that Bill couldn’t get around. Bill and Claudette turned it over again, and again, and then the wheels in Claudette’s head began to turn. She came up with a way to buy the ranch and never have to worry about Stillwell, or her divorce again!

Claudette had a friend, Chip, who worked as the county tax assessor collector and he had confirmed that the entire amount owed on the land was only thirteen hundred dollars. If the land were auctioned at the courthouse for taxes she could pick it up for that amount. There was no lien on the track, so the back taxes and county fees were all that she would have to pay. She was fully aware that the owner had two years after the fact to purchase his land back for that amount if he so chose to do so, but that didn’t matter. She’d work around that. So long as she had that Sheriff’s deed in her hand she could go with that. That would just give her two years to do the planning for the little project she had in mind. During this two years she just had to keep the entire project low key so that the old man didn’t realize that his dilapidated old ranch was worth a bit more than he’d supposed.

A phone call was made. “Chip?”

“Yeah?”

“Listen, are you sure the Stillwell ranch is in arrears?”

“Yeah, but nobody wants it. I mean, old man Stillwell is just counting the days, if you know what I mean.”

“Maybe I want it, Chip. What do I have to do?”

“Why don’t you buy it?”

“I don’t have the money right now, but I do have the tax money.”

“Well you need to get with the lawyer. We hire a lawyer to do these things. It’s gonna need notification, and a few things to protect you, you know?”

“Such as?”

“Well, we only give you a sheriff’s deed. Now that’s not a warranty deed in any sense of the word. You have to pay to make sure there are no problems with the land. Then Mr. Stillwell has two full years to come back and pay you the taxes, interest, and fees associated with the land, and just take it back. You understand, Claudette?”

“I know real estate law, Chip. Can you just get the thing auctioned?”

“Sure, no problem. I’ll get right on it. But what are you going to do if old man Stillwell shows up and pays his taxes? He can just walk up to the courthouse steps and pay me, and your plan goes down the crapper.”

“Chip, I’m counting on you to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

“Now Claudette, I can’t do anything illegal. You know that.”

“I’m not asking you to do anything illegal. Just don’t shout it from the rooftops, ok.”

“Well, I gotta mail him a notice.”

“So mail it.”

“Isn’t he living in town in an apartment?”

“Yeah, but mail it to his last known residence.”

“That shack?”

“His ranch house.”

“They’ll just forward it.”

“Put do not forward on the envelope! God! Do I have to tell you everything?”

“Now the big question; why should I do this?”

“Chip, do you still live in that little two bedroom house over on First and Hackberry?”

“You know I do.”

“Well, if I pull off what I want you’ll have a nice big home down on the river. Do you like the sound of that?”

“Claudette, I have never done anything like this.”

“Chip, when you retire from working with the county, they’re gonna give you a gold plated watch and you are going to go home to a two bedroom place that is only getting older, just like you! I can help you to a better way. Now, if you don’t help me I’ll just find another way and you’ll be in that place forever. Chip, let’s be friends.”

“Claudette, I’m not mad, just a little scared.”

“Relax. That old man won’t pay those taxes. He’ll rock along and lose that place. If this ever comes to light you can cover your tracks easy enough. Just show that you mailed the letter and gave the old man a fair shake.”

“I still don’t see why you don’t just ask him.”

“I don’t have that kind of money. Do I have to keep saying that? He’ll want tons of money. If I thought I could just buy it I would. That old man’s crazy. You know that. He still carries that old Colt Walker forty-four. C’mon. We’re talking about old man Stillwell here! About the only thing he ever did that made sense was shacking up with Barbara that time.”

“Ok, ok, but this really has to stay between us.”

“Hey, no problem.”

On the first Tuesday of the following month, on the north porch of the courthouse Chip came out and called out the conditions of the tax lien on the land. As usual, only a few people were there that day, and particularly on this day because a “norther” had ripped through and the temperature was dropping to the teens with a nice wind to boot. Claudette wondered just why the sale had to be conducted on the north porch. When Chip had read his customary spiel, he asked if the owner was there, which of course he wasn’t, and then he asked if anyone wanted to pay the taxes and receive title to the land. Claudette nodded and the deal was done right there. Claudette would buy the land that would become the coveted “Bend” for what she would later refer to as “milk money.”

Why Term Limits Lost and Ranked Choice Voting Will Succeed

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 10:57am

There have been two major attempts to change the calculus of elections and officeholders since the ‘90s. One is a top down ‘reform’ that’s currently being imposed on voters a jurisdiction at a time. The other was a bottom–up effort imposed on the politicians. The fate of the two is very instructive.

Bill Schorr, San Clemente, CA

The top down innovation is ranked–choice voting and the midterm congressional elections in Maine were the first federal contests to be decided by ranked choice.

Ranked choice works this way. In every race with more than two candidates, voters rank the contestants in order of preference like judges at a wet t–shirt contest.

In a multi–candidate field, if no one receives a majority, then all last–place finisher ballots are thrown out and those voter’s second choice becomes their new vote. If no one gets a majority then, the last place finisher’s votes continue to be tossed and second choices used until someone gets a majority or Trump declares martial law.

Boosters of ranked choice voting promote the change with feel–good promises that are mostly immune to verification. As the League of Women Voters demonstrates. According to that hen party ranked choice “promotes majority support…discourages negative campaigning…provides more choice…minimizes strategic voting…[and] saves money”.

What they don’t tell you is many elections are going to be decided by voters who are the worst at judging candidates and the issues that make them electable. The second–place votes of people whose candidate finished dead last are going to be used to determine a winner. That alone will put a spring in the step of Lyndon LaRouche and Deez Nuts voters.

What should disqualify ranked–choice voting from being used is not relying upon the whims of the incompetent to choose the winner. The big problem with the system is it’s unconstitutional.

By comparison term limits was a bottom–up movement that swept the nation. Twenty–three states imposed term limits on politicians by 1995, compared to ranked choice voting’s tiny foothold in Maine and a handful of cities.

As long as opponents of an entrenched professional political class confined themselves to limiting officeholders in state and local jurisdictions they were initially successful. It was only when voters applied term limits to federal candidates that problems began.

Barnacle–like congressional incumbents knew they could never persuade voters to repeal term limits, so they enlisted the help of our politicians in black robes who really rule the country.

In U.S. Term Limits v. Thornton the leftist majority on the Supreme Court ruled term limits unconstitutional because they allegedly violated Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution by adding additional qualifications to who was eligible to run. Term limits did no such thing. Legislation that limits duration of service does not change the qualifications for service.

The Constitution is silent as to how many times a congressional candidate may run and how long he can hold office. In his Thornton decision dissent Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Nothing in the Constitution deprives the people of each State of the power to prescribe eligibility requirements for the candidates who seek to represent them in Congress. The Constitution is simply silent on this question. And where the Constitution is silent, it raises no bar to action by the States or the people.”

The 10th Amendment also supports Justice Thomas: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Which exactly describes a statewide referendum limiting terms in office.

Compare the court’s opinion of term limits with the obvious unconstitutionality of ranked choice voting. In Reynolds v. Sims, decided in 1964, the Supremes established the principle of one man, one vote.

Ranked choice voting violates this principle because the voters who supported the losing candidate have their votes counted twice. First for the loser and then for their second choice. The voters who had enough sense to vote for a viable candidate in the first place only have their votes counted once. It’s electoral affirmative action for the politically impaired.

The loser of the Maine race intends to challenge the result in court, but I’m not optimistic. For some reason, his lawyers ignore the obvious one man, one vote problem and instead focus on irrelevancies.

It will be interesting to see if the Supreme Court accepts the case and if it does, how the court will decide. Ranked choice is supported by all the best people and the Opposition Media. Plus, it’s used in foreign countries! Term limits had the disadvantage of only being supported by majorities of average voters in their respective states and we know how that turned out.

Here’s Some Real Colluding

Thu, 01/24/2019 - 1:14pm

As if to show the apparent collusion between the liberal Mainstream Media and leftist activists, NBC’s Today interviewed Nathan Phillips, the Native American elder seen beating his drum in an encounter with Covington Catholic High School junior Nick Sandmann, and he said HE FORGIVES the students! While video of Phillips and other leftist minority groups has surfaced that clearly shows he provoked the confrontation, Phillips said he BELIEVES the teen has been insincere in his public response, and NBC did not challenge him on that point with the facts.

Such is the state of the liberal/leftist media in their alliance with the left-wing activists. The media promotes the leftist narrative and version of events, even when it is not true.

Many people have sarcastically said that “liberals are mentally ill,” but here is a clear example of a major media interview where the facts were ignored, while a false narrative (a lie) left unchallenged. When people cannot distinguish between fact from fiction, between right and wrong, they are “delusional.” The liberals and the liberal media are suffering from mass psychosis.

Furthermore, the liberals don’t seem to tolerate the media even when it tries to consider “both sides” of a story. NBC “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie was condemned on Wednesday, Jan. 23, by liberals when she interviewed Sandmann on the “Today” show.

Savannah’s critics were upset because they said she gave Sandmann a “platform” to tell his side. For leftists, there is only their point of view, or as dictators would say, “the official story.”

The cooperation between the liberal Media and leftist activists and politicians couldn’t be more apparent than with this story. However, this bias reporting happens quietly on a daily basis. Unsuspecting and uninformed citizens read and hear the liberal/leftist official story daily, and even the liberal entertainment industry helps promote it.

The liberal media is pushing American society to the point where the politically correct narrative is more important than the facts or truth. This nation is reaching a dangerous tipping point regarding political reality and reality in general.

For the truth to make us free, we must hear it and not fear it.

From the Mind of a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas

The Cabal

Somethings going on, some of us think it, some of us feel it, it’s time to expand your thinking. For a very long time, our world has been under the influence of a criminal mafia, we didn’t know it because they talked and acted just like you and me. We thought we could recognize a true criminal by their words and actions. We were deceived by their speech, education, wealth and power. Through a system of threats, blackmail, bribery, and deceit, they were able to come to power and occupy the highest levels of our government, education and our corporations. You may know them as the Deep State or the Cabal.

Interesting enough, they were able to gain total control over our media and use that against us and farther divide us. They used it as a primary source to control our way of life and our way of thinking. They used that to convince us that we were a threat to each other. They were able to convince us that we are the problem. They used race, gender, and religion against us to farther divide us and keep us from prospering as a people. They funded both sides of the wars and rewrote history to validate their claims to keep the world from knowing we represented peace and hope to the rest of the world. Now with a firm grasp on the media, we drank in their entertainment and lies, allowing them to begin their final phase. The Take Down of America. We were the last remaining beacon of hope in the world. They knew if they could take down America, the rest of the world would follow.

We allowed the Central Bankers control over the finances of the world. Things took a really bad turn when they started putting power and money into the vast civilian intelligence agencies of the world. Agencies that we thought were there to guide and protect us, Instead, these agencies were weaponized and used against us. They had the power to change the direction of governments, they assassinated Presidents, financed drugs and cartels, and human trafficking. They used their influence to undermine our military and overthrow those who would not get in line with the Central Banking Agencies.

Now you might think that these people would have been content to stay in the shadows, but they knew as long as there was freedom, and we were allowed to think, there was always a chance the people would catch on and destroy everything they had worked on for so long, They knew the answer was bringing everybody under one Centralized Government,. A One World Government with no national identity, no police force to stop them, better known as globalism. By using our emotions, and instincts of compassion, they found a way to destroy our cultures and borders. If we resisted, they called us bigots or racist intolerant and shamed us into complying. By 2008 we were on the verge of total economic collapse.

By 2008 we were on the verge of financial collapse, many people were losing their jobs and we were on the verge of financial collapse. They used wars to cause a mass migration of refugees to destabilize borders and countries. When we didn’t accept this, they called us intolerant and shamed us into silence.

Now here’s where things get interesting. By now the Cabal had brought another sphere of influence under their control. The Muslim Brotherhood. the Radical influence of Islam. They realized that fighting each other would be devastating and came to a mutual alliance. Now a hostile form of government would be able to inject an enemy into our government.

Enter President Obama, many of us know that President Obama’s records were sealed, He was Virtually an unknown who climbed to power quickly. What we didn’t know was Prince Alwaleed bin Talal paid for Obama’s education. The Muslims were finally getting what they wanted, they were able to inject a Muslim into our government. Now before you say this couldn’t happen, think! We know Obama started dismantling our military and got rid of most the top-ranking officers. Then many of us noticed the number of Muslim’s that were being appointed to high-level positions within our government. This was all part of the plan to dismantle the United States as we know it. President Obama even told us he was doing it but, No one listened. He started importing and promoting the mass migration of immigrants including Muslims into the country. It was all designed to destroy our economy and bankrupt us. After all, he did manage to take us from 10 trillion dollars in debt to almost 21 trillion before he left office.

Now we are facing two enemies on the home front. While the Middle Eastern enemy is a physically sick enemy, the Western Cabal is an even sicker enemy. The Cabal is a dark and sinister death cult, an enemy that relies on Symbolism and Numerology with levels of cruelty unimaginable by the sane and thinking people. If they are ever exposed it would send shockwaves into around the world if they were publicly exposed.

Are you ready to hear what they had planned? They infiltrated their people into our government, opened backdoors and exposed highly secret military plans and programs, cut our militaries, and weakened the commanding strength of our military Generals, they gave us irrational rules of engagement as they worked to destroy our military. The worked to dismantle NASA to end our Supremacy in space. They infiltrated and exposed sensitive defense military programs, they worked to reduce our ability to detect foreign and domestic threats, they used our trusted agencies to target their political opponents. They relaxed our borders and allowed entry to illegals and illegal gangs. They moved money to fund global terrorism, which resulted in groups like ISIS moving across vast territories to create chaos around the world.
In 2016 they had everything in place to finish the job when their candidate lost. Now, these people are running scared.

Ten Bears and the Battle at Lincoln Memorial

Wed, 01/23/2019 - 11:43am

One thing I can say about the Main Stream Media is they can sure spin a story! And I thought I was a good liar. I give you Ten Bears, I mean Nathan Phillips, Native American, social activist, darling of the left, and the biggest showman since P. T. Barnum.

He took it upon himself to beat on a drum in front of the Lincoln Memorial and sing his death song the other day, which prodded a bunch of Catholic kids to don red MAGA caps and look at him. No fooling folks. This is big news. Back in my day we had to shoot a president to get this kind of coverage.

Now, I understand that we’re all supposed to fall down and pray every time the Indians say or do anything because we kinda stole a whole country from them and gave it to the Mexicans, but frankly I’m getting old and I can kiss only so many asses!

So Ten Bears claims he’s a ”Vietnam Era” vet. A ”Recon Ranger!” That conjures up images of those Navajos back in WWII perplexing the Germans with radio messages. Only problem is ol’ Ten Bears was ”reconning” refrigerators in Topeka, Kansas! Hey! I’m a Vietnam era vet! I mean I lived in Killeen back then, and I ran a strip joint for soldiers. I still have PTSD, or STD or something. Now, where was I?

Anyway, the Left is on this like Charlie Sheen on a pile of hookers! And you can’t channel surf without seeing Ten Bears talking about his harrowing experience with that CCD class that stared him down. Thank God they weren’t Mormons! One kid even bellowed out, ”It’s not rape if you enjoy it!” There was this one particular girl in the group who smiled and flared her eyes when that was said. Ten to one she’s the most popular girl down at Covington Catholic.

This incident was so covered that it took the spotlight away from the border wall. Even Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA got jealous. And, I’d like to note that the Lincoln Memorial WAS open! What I’m wondering is where Ten Bears got that goatee. When I was traveling through the Navajo reservation I didn’t see a lot of that. Maybe “White Eyes” slipped in there somewhere. Yep. I think Nathan speaks with forked tongue!

From the Mind of a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas:
There’s a Storm Cloud Rising.

Well it’s safe to say, we have a serious problem in the United States. When our Congress is holding Americans hostage over illegal immigrants, with another caravan moving through Mexico, refusing to secure our borders, then it’s time to seriously consider removing these folks from Washington.

Where are our Constitutional Sheriff’s? I mean this is turning into a major crisis. When we have people telling us there is no crisis at the border, yet drugs, prostitution, and sexual predators are moving into our country, piling in everyday, with yet another caravan coming through Mexico, it should be plain as day what their plans are.

These people are globalist that want to bankrupt our country. We are 22 Trillion dollars in debt and these people are adding more and more debt to our country. They want to reduce us to the same level as these other 3rd world countries. Look around people, more and more people, everyday, are losing everything and living in the streets. Yet we keep bringing these 3rd world immigrants into our country. Why? We can’t take care of the people we have already. Have we lost our minds? Apparently we have.

This country turned it’s back on God, and now look at us. Look at our leaders, godless, soulless, people who want the rest of us to be their servants. They think they are our masters and we must bow down and do as they say. They don’t care what we elected this President to do, they are the rightful rulers, in their minds, and we will do as they say. Why else do you think they have our government shut down? They don’t care.

I’m not sure what it’s going to take to get you folks off your arse and get you to do something about it, but, what we’re doing right now isn’t working. We elected a man who is trying to do what he said he would do and he’s been fighting to do just that. He needs help. Hell the liberals in Congress were already saying no deal, before the President was half way through his speech today. Think about that.

They’ve literally told We the people of the United States, the ones who elected President Donald J. Trump, to go screw ourselves. They don’t care. They are literally telling us to kiss their arse, they will not budge and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Well hell, I’m just a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas, why should I care anyways? Maybe it’s getting close to Bug Out Time… Or is it? There’s a Storm Cloud Rising.

That Long Winter at Valley Shutdown

Tue, 01/22/2019 - 10:16am

The long winter at Valley Shutdown is evidently growing more dire for federal employees. They have now missed their FIRST paycheck. Repercussions from this disaster extend all the way into Latin America. My son was browsing the Facebook page for the Swamp suburb where we live. He came across a female federal employee who was distraught because the furlough had forced her to lay off the housekeeper.

Gary McCoy, Shiloh, IL

Other page members were discussing whether to organize a donation drive to supply homebound feds with gift cards for gas and groceries. It was certainly a touching message thread. It resembled an effort by restaurant kitchen staff to take up a collection for the health inspector.

Before you donate your tax refund to the Shutdown Privation Fund, I’d like to inject a note of reality. Homes in the neighborhood where the maid–less woman currently cries bitter tears have an average price of $345,000, according to Redfin. And those dwellings aren’t located on the water.

The average federal salary, according to OPM, is $81,578 while the median wage is $76,131. Neither numbers include federal benefits totaling upwards of $41,791 per civilian worker. The CBO found that regardless of education, federal wages and benefits far exceed those of the private sector where wages average $44,000 and benefits average $10,589.

Never was so much paid to so few by so many.

The local WoePost, excuse me, Washington Post has been extensively covering suffering in Valley Shutdown. On January 10th, there were so many federal sob–stories the topic almost pushed cloyingly coverage of illegal aliens off the front page. I counted a total of nine in section A alone.

My favorite was a front–page story of Dickensonian hardship headlined: “Government shutdown creates a January slowdown for businesses trying to adapt.” At Swann House “a cozy bed-and-breakfast in a fin de siècle mansion a few blocks from Dupont Circle, …impeccably decorated rooms are languishing in shutdown mode.”

No one to light the in–room fireplaces or tickle the ivories in the sitting room. Tugging at our heartstrings the reporter adds, “businesses are suffering as pieces of those paychecks stop trickling down to them.”

I hate to be the one who rains on Little Nell’s parade, but my question is what the heck are government employees doing staying at Swann House in the first place? Rooms there range from a low of $299 in the “Parisienne Suite” to $319 for the “Regent.” And that’s before DC’s gouge–the–tourist hotel and sales tax. When you add that the per night rate is $343 to $366.

Compare those rates with a hotel about a block away where rooms are $169 before tax. And lest you think well ‘who wants to dodge dookie and derelicts on the way in the lobby’, US News & World Report rates the Kimpton Carlyle the “Best Hotel in Washington DC.”

This hand–wringing coverage of employees who make more than the people who pay them and stay at tony hotels taxpayers can’t afford only proves how out–of–touch the Opposition Media and government ‘Resistance’ workers really are.

I’m waiting to read of the belt–tightening at Dean & DeLuca as truffle sales wither.

Reporters are so eager to cast blame on President Trump that industries formerly regarded as pariahs are now objects of sympathy. For example: “Government shutdown starting to burn aerospace and defense firms.”

Another amusing account was headlined: “Trump is right. Unpaid federal workers are making ‘adjustments’ — soliciting money from strangers and taking out loans.” People solicit money from strangers all the time in DC, usually at gunpoint. The idea that a total stranger could approach you and say, “I’m from the government and I need your help” is almost too rich.

Other coverage itemizes additional Shutdown havoc. The NTSB is forced to prioritize investigations, which sounds to me like a positive development. Since the weather isn’t stopping the Weather Service is still issuing forecasts, only now they worry federal workers won’t have enough money to clear grocery aisles of milk and toilet paper when warned of an impending snowflake.

The WoePost has also been trying to convince readers that food banks are full of GS–13s stocking up on pinto beans, but I’m not buying it.

Left out is the fact that when the feds return to what is generously called ‘work’ they’ll get back every last dime of the paychecks they missed. Ask a construction worker or union member who is laid off if that happens in their industry.

There’s a lesson in this for taxpayers. Not being able to survive missing a single paycheck — on a salary far better than that earned by taxpayers paying their wages — explains all you need to know about the people in charge of federal government financial planning.

Saving the Tea Party

Saving The Tea Party

We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution.The heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights and equal opportunities, whether we are going to treat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated. If an American, because his skin is dark, cannot eat lunch in a restaurant open to the public, if he cannot send his children to the best public school available, if he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him, if, in short, he cannot enjoy the full and free life which all of us want, then who among us would be content to have the color of his skin changed and stand in his place? Who among us would then be content with the counsels of patience and delay? – John F Kennedy

If we are to rescue the Tea Party from the mire that has become American Politics, then we must go back to when our mission was less confusing, and our citizens less divided. For four bloody years, from April of 1861 to May of 1865 American citizens warred against each other over whether or not America would be the United States of America, or a collection of territories calling themselves states. Since the majority of those who fought on the side of federalism were against slavery, and the majority of those in favor of a loose coalition of independent states were in favor of slavery, the issue of slavery has long been considered to be the cause of the murderous mayhem called the civil war. The rationale for this erroneous conclusion is yet another misapprehension; the flimsy notion that, at stake was the murky issue of states rights. The truth is, that since the confederacy was just that, Jefferson Davis was unable to compel the individual armies of each confederate state to coordinate their efforts, and the war was lost due to the very cause for which the flower of southern youth died. The lesson that history has taught humans from the dawn of time had been forgotten, and a divided army was conquered by one united by the principle of federalism.

It is truly inevitable that those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat it. At the end of the war seven hundred thousand Americans lay dead, and what may have been never was. Truthfully, less than ten percent of the Americans who fought for the mistaken reason of states rights even owned slaves. So why did so many people die in a fight in which they had no dog? The answer, is so plain that I am embarrassed to repeat it; it was capitalistic corporations that cared just as much for human life as they do today. The less obvious reason is less obvious because it is insidious. In order to create a fighting force large enough to destroy the United States of America the corporations had to create both a reason for the ordinary southerner, who owned no slaves at all to take up arms, and the perception that those they would be killing were deserving of death. Evil were those who conspired to destroy our constitution and our union, and foolish were those who followed the piper to their deaths.

It is a history America is on the brink of repeating again. Multinational corporatism has once again taken aim at our nation. Our citizens are once again divided over the issues of so called states rights, and slavery, although most Americans would deny it. How it is that Americans can deny this charge is beyond comprehension.

The evidence lays in plain sight for even the slow of wit to see. Federalism is now a dirty word to roughly half our nation. Racism is frankly out of control, and considered harmless, normal, or justifiable to the same people. Once again, most of the products used by Americans are manufactured by slaves. Hyperbole hardly serves up an adequate description for the chaos that reigns in Washington, and once again Americans are gradually marginalizing each other, pushing this process to the verge of violence.

This chart shows us that the two political parties are hopelessly divided over the issue of race at both the level of political representation, and the level of ordinary citizenry. As far as the other charges go, it’s a lot like looking out your window to see what the weather is like; it’s that obvious. At the Butcher Shop, we have become convinced that the reconstruction of a constitutional government depends entirely upon the Tea Party principle of assigning the right to tax as a privilege that is given solely by the people.

In the last cycle of it’s political relevance the Tea Party was co-opted by the Republican Party by means of cash donations to the party by representatives of the Republican Party to such an extent that the term Tea Partier was synonymous with Republican. I feel that if you are a republican or a democrat, then be a member of your party.

Our analysis of the political reality is that the Tea Party will lack the strength to put forward meaningful candidates in the 2020 elections with the exception of those whose presence might help or harm a candidate of either of the major parties, thus serving as a tool for either the republicans or the democrats; an awkward, if not unacceptable role for a party that might serve the interests of America so much more productively.

Closer examination of this dilemma, however reveals a surprise. As is the case in warfare of any kind, our weakness is our strength. An organized and strong Tea Party with a clear vision of what constitutes the values and the vision of it’s constituency could, in sufficient numbers defeat candidates from either party. Without candidates to fight against, the Tea party would be a formidable foe. We could strike, but not be struck.

At the Butcher Shop we do many things, but our most visible efforts are in what we write. We have taken many steps forward in the last two years, and we feel ready to make another change now. In remembrance of another war fought on American soil, we propose a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.

We would like to welcome Charlie Brown to the Butcher Shop. You can follow Charlie at the Butcher Shop, the PeckerWood Press, and right here on the Tea Party Tribune.

Happy Martin Luther King Day

Mon, 01/21/2019 - 5:01am

We at the Butcher Shop have made a compact. We are NOT going to write about this silly-ass government shutdown . I mean, look at all the money we’re saving! Not to mention not getting groped at the airport for the duration. Now, with that having been said, happy Martin Luther King day! I mean, as a former Baptist, now an American, I celebrate this day above all others. Christmas is over-rated. King day is king!

There was a man. Came to us in Berry Creek, I think it was to buy investment property. As he signed contracts on our porch he gazed out at the Arnold Palmer golf course and told me, “I’ve always wanted to play this course, but I could never get a tee time.” I asked him when he’d like to play. He looked at me amazed, “Saturday.” No problem! I was a gold club member.

So, Saturday rolled around and he showed up with his entourage. I mean he was decked out. Dressed up in Scottish clad, complete with striped socks, he was ready to play golf! First, we went and bought Berry Creek balls, only the best. Coffee, of course, and then on to the links.

He was very impressed by the houses peppering the course, and joked about my expertise on the tenth green, which was where my house was situated. It was a lovely afternoon. You see, the Berry Creek course was shaded by many trees, and the brutal Texas heat abated somewhat. As we played, joggers and walkers passed by, and of course there was cold beer in the coolers at every green. Hollywood! Jackie even played caddie.

We wound up at the “nineteenth” hole, i.e. The club bar. Drinks were on me. As a gold member I had to spend a certain amount each month. If I didn’t get drunk enough, well, they just charged me anyway. So, I developed a right proper martini habit that Jackie assisted with. So, we settled down with martinis and prime rib.

We passed the afternoon talking about this and that. He was interested in investment opportunities, and I was interested in him buying as many properties as possible. Of course I didn’t mention that Berry Creek was not actually a creek, but the Balconies fault line that rocked and rolled with amazing regularity. At one point I approached the bar for more drinks. As the bartender shook the martinis he inquired as to exactly who my guest was. You see, my friend was black. And we were in a decidedly “cracker” environment.

“Oh, him?” I said. “Yeah, that’s the deputy commander of Fort Hood. I think he’s a general. And, by the way, I have a bad leg and I’d appreciate if you’d make sure that our glasses don’t run dry. I’m tired of carting drinks. And a smile would be nice. You might wanna have one of them towels over your arm while you serve.” We never did quite fit into into Berry Creek. I don’t know why. Yeah, I really like Martin Luther King day. Cheers!
