Don’t Blame US – Part Deux


House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy:

 

So many well-intentioned people feel that former Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul was wrong and ignorant for wanting to stop the US Wars.

Lets take a look at that.  Why does anyone think that the US needs to have boots on the ground in countries all around the world?

Dr. Paul says in his opinion that other countries consider our country to be a threat by being there in the first place.

He gives the example of how we would feel if other countries did that to us.

What would be the logical outcome if Russia or China were to build a huge military base in Iraq?  How about Cuba?  Would Americans feel safe if Korea began a base in Mexico?  What if the land owned by China in this country were to be used for Chinese military training?   What happens when China determines it’s in their best interest to have a base in Italy?

Who the hell died and left the United States in charge of the world?  Americans pumped full of patriotism were hell bent about stopping Russia from doing the same things we’re doing across the globe.  We fought off Germany and Japan for trying that same principle.  We fought the Vietnam War, which was really US against Russia and China, and all we accomplished was loss of life.

Is it because we promote the Democratic way that makes us right and them wrong?  Who are we to say what is right for other countries?  Did we not fight a war with England to stop them from telling us how to live our lives and taxing us?  Just because we give out billions of dollars in financial aid: does that give us the right to occupy their lands?

The question is:  What are we occupying their lands for?  Is the answer the same tired old statement that we have a presence there to ebb the flow of communism?  So the old adages that worked on people in the 50′s are supposed to be good reasons for World Dominance?

Heads up!  The world does not want to be dominated!  If they wanted our brand of democracy and someone to tell them what’s right and wrong – they would ask for our help and opinions!  Politicians and school teachers, have been preaching for 60 years about how the world needs us to be a presence globally, lest said countries dissolve into wars and famine.

Now I have to ask you – Who do you think is paying for this world protection?

News-break for you:  The United States Government does not have any money that it does not take first from its citizens!  Those “Bullets Over Baghdad” were all bought with your labor and taxes.  So are the schools and roads and hospitals and anything else that the American government does in its Nation Building quest.  Just how much of a Global Citizen do you want to be?  How much do you desire to pay for this title?  Are you more of a global citizen than the people of Switzerland and how does that make you feel?

Did they ever teach you in school that if you pay attention, work hard and keep your mouth shut, that you can grow up to be a productive member of society and PAY to make the world a safer place?  How much time have you spent in consideration that it is your tax dollars that are protecting oil fields in the Middle East so that other nations can have easier access to oil at a lower price per gallon?  Did you ever think that your own children would attend a substandard school while your tax dollars built new schools in another country?  Should your son die to protect the rights of Omar from being violated by Mohammed!  Thats a very graphic thought, but what does it take to get Americans to realize that we should not be doing this.

WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY

Why should Americans feel that we need “boots on the ground” in another country to protect our way of life and freedom?
There was once a cartoon that characterized a “salesman” attempting to sell machine guns to a Roman general in front of the generals tent.  In the background it was clear that the Roman army was equipped with shields, spears and bows w/arrows.  The caption said:  ”Not now, I have a war to fight.”  That my fellow Americans, is the general thinking of most people when it comes to protecting America.

Withdrawing troops and bases from foreign soil does not mean “Isolationism.”  It does not mean that we as a nation desire to tell the world to go away!  Other countries see the United States as “Bully’s” as opposed to our grand notion that we are there to protect them.  You can argue all you want that they are wrong but it is still their perception that matters in their country.  Sure, there have been crying kids and parents thanking our troops gratefully, in some country that we helped win a battle – after the bombs stopped and the burials began.  How long after the funerals were over do you think that the opinions began to change?  A year, 5-10 years?  How do you think they feel 50 years later?  Just how wrong is Dr. Paul for stating we should pull out of these countries?  After all, it is Americans they are shooting at and not each other.  It is our embassy’s that are getting bombed.  It is our military installations that they attack.  What kind of clue do you need to understand that it is their country and they don’t want us in it?

Therefore, the very strategy of “protecting our interest” has to change.

Have you ever personally witnessed what our military is capable of when we take the handcuffs off?  I have, even though it was 40 years ago.  I have to believe that what was once powerful, is even more so today with technology and much better weapons and planes.  Our navy, with its aircraft carriers sitting miles offshore can do amazing things.  Airplanes flying at the speed of sound can shoot missiles through open windows and return to the safety of the carrier which is guarded by another ship called a Destroyer.  Do we really need 200 military bases when one will suffice?  Do we really need our men and women walking the streets of a combat zone.  How about sitting in a tent or barracks at a military compound waiting on a hostile missile to take them out?  Why? Why? Why?

We have a Secretary of State and many Ambassadors to negotiate with the heads of state of all the world.  There are so many military and world leaders that no one even knows who they are.  Let them do their jobs and quit using the threat of violence in the forms of soldiers walking the streets  to do our bidding and protect us.  We don’t need to lose a life to make a point!  If our leaders can not negotiate a settlement – we sanction them and hold our ground til they do agree.  If that doesn’t work and they take an American life, we send them a present.  That present should be in the form of our advanced technology.  We can send a little technology or a lot of technology, depending on how long it takes to make the point. The present should be delivered from Utah or a carrier located so far off shore that it can’t be seen with binoculars.

Problem solved.

Thats not Isolationism!  Its Protectionism!  Our country’s leaders need to “Say what they mean and mean what they say.”  If they can’t do that, they need to be replaced.  Iran released hostages because they knew Ronald Reagan would not tolerate their actions, the day he came into office.  Our country has to have leaders that other countries respect.  One of our states has road signs that everyone in our nation knows about whether they have ever been there or not.  The signs simply say:  Don’t Mess With Texas.  Texas doesn’t go to other states and flaunt this ideology but everyone knows its there.  I don’t promote scaring the world straight, but I do promote using the technology that we have in a way that saves our nation money and lives.

Instead of putting American sons and daughters in harms way, we should pull back to a safe distance.   Say somewhere in the neighborhood of “Home.”  Take the targets off the backs of our men and women and put them in our country where they can protect American borders.  So far we have done a better job of protecting Iraqi borders than the ones we have in the southwest and California. That doesn’t mean that all immigration should cease either!  It just means that we are going to enforce the laws we have had in place and stop the flow of illegals coming into this nation.  We have to wake up to the realization that it is not just illegal gardeners that are coming across our borders.

Was 9/11 our fault?  HELL NO!  But ask yourself this:

Why did the Islamic Terrorists not fly planes into the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, or Tiananmen Square.  No they specifically wanted to ruin our nation financially (World Trade Center) and send a message to our military by taking out the Pentagon.  Look at the messages they sent during the Clinton administration.  Our nations military needs to come home and quit antagonizing the lunatics located outside our borders.  I would rather send a missile from 100 miles away than shoot at a man from 50 yards. Missiles are just more accurate and besides that “its nothing personal.” just business.

Take the handcuffs off and do the job right!  It makes financial sense and SAVES American lives.

 

Part Deux – because this was originally written and posted in September 2011.  Most considered it a story in support of Ron Paul for President and dismissed it as another “Paulite” piece.  Under present times, with Kevin McCarthy that has just replaced Eric Cantor as the Majority Leader in the House, and is calling for the possibility of sending “boots on the ground” back to Iraq – this article seems to be in need of review.

Act Like Winners!


 

What are you going to do if you win?  If the GOP wins the Senate in 2014, let the backstabbing and infighting begin.  This isn’t anything new as it’s been going on since the last tidal wave of new Republican blood came rushing into office.

It’s high time that the Republican Party starts thinking, planning and acting as though they will be leading our nation in a few short months.

Will John Boehner continue as our country’s Speaker of the House or will he and his white flag of surrender be voted out in favor of someone more conservative?  Now that Eric Cantor has bitten the dust for being a chameleon on immigration, who are we going to have that will do the job if Boehner is put on the shelf by his colleagues?

What about the Senate Majority Leader?  It’s fairly evident that the People and its conservative base do not want Mitch McConnell in this position.  This new set of national leaders had better start filling in the citizens of this country as to just what they’re about to vote for.  Otherwise the liberal media will put their spin on the future under the Republican Party leadership, before they even get the chance to speak.  Then, as usual, it will be Republicans defending a position instead of leading.  If Republicans allow the media to “define” them, they may never get the chance to begin with.

The House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader positions are not a “given” position. Seniority does play a big part in who will be pushed to the forefront for their crony and good old boy votes.  There is a list of Senators with seniority at Wikipedia that would scare the hell out of all young Conservatives.

Here’s what it looks like from the seniority and Peoples Point of View:

·      Orrin Hatch – dislikes tea party and part of R divide

·      Thad Cochoran – may be unseated and not available,

·      Chuck Grassley – has some potential and recognizes tea party

·      Mitch McConnell – is not very well thought of by tea party folks

Richard Shelby – They don’t even like him in Alabama

That rounds out your Top 5 in seniority and coming up next is John (Juan) McCain!

Now for the Real Young Guns:  These are the headline making upstarts that give good speeches and win the hearts of Tea Party folks across the land.

·      Ted Cruz – May run for POTUS – irritates all RINO politicians

·      Rand Paul – May run for POTUS – irritates some Tea Partiers on immigration

·      Mike Lee – The most logical choice that the Tea Party will appreciate

It is becoming imperative that the Old Guard and the Young Guns put down their weapons and figure out how to give the People what they have voted for.

Citizens are voting for REAL CHANGE this time and I have a few questions that a lot of people are asking:

Are you ready to win or will you be standing their stunned when it gets thrown into your lap?  You know that Hatch, is waiting and McConnell may win, but they’re not the Conservative Dream Team that Conservatives would like to see steering this ship.

Approaching the tee, we now have Grassley, Shelby and McCain coming in for their approach shots!  No way!  You know that the Tea Party is going to fight you for sure there.

Recognize this:  Your party may win in a landslide (that’s what we’re praying for) and then you think that you’re going to give us a brand new RINO to lead us.  Our nation will still be divided and you can expect an incumbent bloodbath in 2016 and 2018.

Believe it or not, the Tea Party got you here. It’s time to please the People for a change!  We didn’t work our butts off, so that you could play the usual PAC money games and snuggle up with a lobbyist while the new guys are trying to find their desk.

Which Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader will champion the undoing of all the things Tea Party voters are angry about?  Whether the Republican Party is ready to admit it or not, it is the grass roots tea party movement that has brought them to this point.  Americans want Real Change and not a group of old RINO’s that pretend to be for the people and then vote against their desires because they think no one knows what they’re doing.

The People are concerned about a lot more, than just illegal aliens.  If Republicans gain the majority in both houses, they better figure out real quickly how they’re going to deal with the economy.  Say NO one more time to all the unemployed and see what happens to your job in 2 to 4 more years!

It’s on you now Bubba – with a majority, you’re the ones at risk of the entire nations ire, concerning that Economy thing.  It will be equally as bad if you start the Obama blame game and lay it at Harry Reid’s feet.  Conservatives didn’t like it when Obama and Reid pulled that crap on Bush and it won’t wash this cycle either.  You win now and start taking the heat immediately.  No, the people will not be patient, they will expect results to start pouring in asap – so be ready.

After you figure out who will be the Senate Majority Leader and if Boehner will be replaced, you better offer up a REAL candidate for the Oval Office, to work with.  Your constituents will be looking for someone with the knowledge and skills of a Newt Gingrich, the brains and morals of a Mitt Romney and the balls of a Sarah Palin.

Our economy is a real wreck with a few million that will need continued help with unemployment after Nov. 30th.  I haven’t heard anyone state anything but the obvious about national debt, and nothing concerning what they would do to keep Americans housed and eating.

On the issue of jobs – well the Republican Party had better find a way to get them back from China, Indonesia, India and South America, or they will become the biggest losers in a very short period.  Get your solutions ready!

We the People have worked tirelessly for you in order for you to be in your jobs.  We have believed in you and we have gone to war with half the people in this nation to elect you.

ACT LIKE YOU CAN WIN! – and, know what you’re going to do after November 2014.

REPUBLICAN Curtsey for Immigration Reform


The latest REPUBLICAN curtsey for Immigration Reform

Congressman Paul Ryan claims the soon to be presented principles would outline a bill that would allow immigrants living in the country illegally to “come out of the shadows” to receive a probationary work permit.

To get out of the probationary status and receive a regular work permit, triggers for border security and interior enforcement would have to be met and independently verified.

Those immigrants would also have to pay a fine, learn English and civics, and prove that they are not on welfare.

At that point, they would be able to apply for a green card for permanent residency through regular procedures.

Sure they’ll do all that. They’ll take an English and Civics test, given and graded down at the current incarnation of the local ACORN offices. The background checks for applicant welfare status will be as strict as current checks for workers’ status, and we all know how effective that has been.  In addition the applicant’s unmarried partner – or partner(s) in some cultural arrangements – can be bringing all manner of welfare, food stamps, and other benefits into the household.  And it’ll be that benefit check money, confiscated from the taxpayers, which will be used to pay the fines – if any.

It’s not that Americans do not like or want immigrants!  The truth is – we can not afford them.  
Our country does not have the infrastructure (Schools, Hospitals, Roads, Prisons etc) to support the population explosion that has been happening in the previous 15 years.
 
The below video is not Anti-Immigration – it is Anti-Population Explosion!  If you really believe, deep down in your heart, that you and everyone on your contacts list can afford this policy – “Be very, very still” and “Don’t say a word” – before you know it, you’ll be living with it.  
 
Speak now, or forever hold your peace.

In Defense of Obama


Obama’s Defense

 

I still find it difficult to understand how people that are intelligent enough to write articles about Obama’s corruption, un-intelligently still believe that Obama is smart enough to do this by himself.  No one ever bothers to speak about the Legislative Branches of our government and how our own Constitutional setup forbids the things that they write about.  Therefore, everything that Obama is blamed for had to have been ok’d by the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader.  Who are the armies of attorney’s that consult with people like Harry Reid, John Boehner, Axelrod, Jarrett, and Holder? (To name a few)  Is John Boehner totally in the dark as to when these “think tanks” get together and conceive the atrocious government actions that they get away with?  Why is it that all we ever hear about, are sound bites of some Republican Senator or House Member bitching about what “just happened” as if they did not know about it prior to being broadcast in the media?  Let’s “water board” the entire Republican Party, and find out what they know!  (We may be disappointed)  The Democrats have created a “wave of irresponsibility” in which no one gets fired or answers for their actions, and the Republicans are riding it like a California beach bum.

 

The “uninformed voters” and the rest of America’s citizens have been sold down the Mississippi River by the foxes and the guard dogs that were hired to protect us.  The spine of America wasn’t broken – it “atrophied” into the giant parasitic jellyfish that it has become.  Many Americans, – Liberals included, knew that Obama was / is a fraud, but succumbed to the media and found it more fashionable and safe to keep their revolutionary thoughts to themselves.  Today’s social media is no match for yesterday’s street rioters and brave patriots that marched on DC to attempt to halt corruption.  Hell, many people will not even agree that corruption is happening because they get their opinions handed to them by the old PRAVDA styled media that has reborn itself in our “once great nation”.

 

I stopped blaming Obama years ago and instead have watched (daily) in amazement at the passiveness of our citizens.  Not a single day goes by in which Republicans and Democrats have premeditatedly and with bipartisan cooperation, assaulted the freedoms and people of our country.  Our nation of zombie citizens are so numb to these assaults that you can light a fire under their asses, but they will not feel it, and many will not even recognize the flames.

 

Sadly,

Obamacare – The Non Equality Tax Act


December 26, 2013

A man wrote…I’m a 54-year-old consulting engineer and make between $60,000 and $125,000 per year, depending on how hard I work and whether or not there are work projects out there for me.

My girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a part-time mail clerk.

For me, making $60,000 a year, under ObamaCare, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I can buy, which also happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per month.

For my girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per month. That’s right, $1 per month. I’m not making this up.

Don’t believe me? Just go to www.coveredca.com , the ObamaCare website for California and enter the parameters I’ve mentioned above and see for yourself. By the way, my zip code is 93940. You’ll need to enter that.

So OK, clearly ObamaCare is a scheme that involves putting the cost burden of healthcare onto the middle and upper-income wage earners. But there’s a lot more to it. Stick with me.

And before I make my next points, I’d like you to think about something:

I live in Monterey County, in Central California. We have a large land mass but just 426,000 residents – about the population of Colorado Springs or the city of Omaha.

But we do have a large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a massive, Federally subsidized county medical complex that takes up an area about one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile assembly plant in Belvedere, Illinois (see Google Earth View). Natividad has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room, and much more. If you have no insurance, if you’ve been in a drive-by shooting or have overdosed on crack cocaine, this is where you go. And it’s essentially free, because almost everyone who ends up in the ER is uninsured.

Last year, 2,735 babies were born at Natividad. 32% of these were born to out-of-wedlock teenage mothers, 93% of which were Hispanic. Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of citizenship, and 71% listed their native language as Spanish. Of these 876 births, only 40 were covered under [any kind of] private health insurance. The taxpayers paid for the other 836. And in case you were wondering about the entire population – all 2,735 births – less than 24% involved insured coverage or even partial payment on behalf of the patient to the hospital in exchange for services. Keep this in mind as we move forward.

Now consider this:

If I want to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what I had with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month. But my girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4 per month. That’s right, $4 per month. $48 per year for a zero-deductible, premium healthcare policy – the kind of thing you get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM employees pay an average of $170 per month out of pocket for their coverage).

I mean, it’s bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the ObamaCare scheme in the first place. But even if I agreed with the basic scheme, which of course I do not, I would never agree to subsidize premium policies. If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy, I sure as hell do not want the guy I’m subsidizing to get a better policy, for less that 1% of what I have to fork out each month for a low-end policy.

Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other guy gets for a dollar? And why should the other guy get to buy an $886 policy for $4 a month? Think about this: I have to pay $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy can get for $48. $10,000 of net income is 60 days of full-time work as an engineer. $48 is something I could pay for collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one day a month.

Are you with me on this? Are you starting to get an idea what ObamaCare is really about?

ObamaCare is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system. That’s just the cover story. The real story is that it is a massive, political power grab. Do you think anyone who can insure himself with a premium policy for $4 a month will vote for anyone but the political party that provides him such a deal? ObamaCare is about enabling, subsidizing and expanding the Left’s political power base, at taxpayer expense. Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat if I can have babies for $4 a month? For that matter, why would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if it means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage? Heck, why study engineering when I can be a schlub for $20K per year and buy a new F-150 with all the money I’m saving?

And think about those $4-a-month babies – think in terms of propagation models. Think of just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated mothers. Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle physicists from the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops, criminal courts and prisons? One thing you can be certain of: At $4 a month, they’ll multiply, and multiply, and multiply. And not one of them will vote Republican.

ObamaCare: It’s all about political power.

Straight Talk!


Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers!  Take a look around you – are you happy with what you have and your future?   If you were not that impressed with voting for the lesser of two evils during the last election cycle (or 2) and shunned politics except on voting day, don’t act surprised at the politicians that guided you into this tailspin.  The gender benders and skin color voters are all around you and they’re prepared to do it again – because they feel it is “right”.  

 
Senate Majority Leader HARRY REID will be re-elected in Nevada!  This DOES NOT mean he will remain the Senate Majority Leader, “if” enough Republicans are voted into the Senate and take control!  Sorry about that Nevadans but the rest of the country can’t trust another Angle.  (get my drift here old sport?)
 
Can all of America really afford to rest in the comfort of the Nevada citizens votes that will determine HARRY REID’s future?  If ever, Americans needed to get off their butts and “get out and vote”, it is now!
 
Just take a look at how Harry will win in Nevada:
 
Reid already knows (count on it) who will be challenging him for the seat.  Expect to see him tear this person apart during the years 2014 and right up to election night in 2015.  He naturally will not be able to run on his record, and just like the last election in which he won, (over his selected opponent), will destroy that person in the Liberal Media. (aka Sharon Angle style)
 
Harry will have a great number of past and present GOP members, as well as celebrities that will endorse him.  These most certainly will be the ones that endorsed him in 2010.  Hundreds of prominent Republicans endorsed Reid, fearful of losing his clout at a time when the state had a record 14.4 percent unemployment and the highest foreclosure rate in America, during the last election.  Among his GOP supporters were:
  •  Two former first ladies 
  • The mayor of Reno 
  • The Republican leader in the State Senate
  •  Entertainer Wayne Newton
  • Baseball great Greg Maddux 
  • Former Republican National Committee chairman who is now the chief lobbyist for the gaming industry
  • MGM Resorts
  • Harrah’s Entertainment sent a memo to its employees urging them to vote for Reid
  • Most bigwigs in the gaming and mining industries
 
This is just a small percentage of the repeatable election stunts that the well oiled Democrat Machine will be plastering the state of Nevada with.  Citizens across the country had better be thinking of this election in terms of a nuclear bomb.  They can’t control what happens in Nevada, but they can do all they can to prevent this disastrous politician from being Senate Majority Leader for another term.  
 
With any luck at all, the Nevada Republican Party will not run a candidate that is bats..t crazy and hope Harry defeats himself!  The RNC should actually try vetting a candidate for a change and forget the also-rans from the past.  (Google the definition of insanity)
 
You can state that the polls were “jury rigged” or claim voter fraud until the 22nd century, but the results will still be 6 more years of Harry Reid and his reign as Senate Majority leader.   Unless Republicans can come together and vote him out in Nevada, (don’t count on it), or vote in a Republican Majority for our nation, you can expect more of the same Constitution smashing politics in Washington DC.  
 
For the upcoming elections in 2016, I’d like to invite the Republican National Committee to participate for a change. (Nation wide)  I’d like to see the same thing happen with this organization on a statewide basis across our nation.  These RNC organizations need to quit depending on Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity to do their jobs for them, and actually create a “Get Out The Vote” program that someone has actually heard of, and is conscious of.  It would be extremely helpful if they get started prior to the week before the election.
 
Our nation can not live with another “Prayer for Judgement” with Harry Reid in control.  Therefore, it falls upon the voting public in every state from border to border, to vote Republican  (Mickey Mouse if they have to), in order to rid ourselves of Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.  To do anything less, is exactly what you will be living with the rest of your life.  
 
Forewarned is Forearmed!

The Dirty 2 Dozen+1


The below are the 25 Republican “GOP” RINO’s that voted with the Democrats / sided with Harry Reid on the Obamacare vote, Sept. 27th, 2013.

WHEN the 2014 Primaries begin and the selection of who will represent your state is once again placed in your hands, REMEMBER – the level of loyalty these politicians have shown you.

Don’t Forget – that these politicians all ran for office on a promise to “do away with” Obamacare and make every effort to rid our people of this legislation.

These professional politicians broke their spoken or implied promises to the very people that put them into office.

You can now “accept their excuses” and vote to continue them in office at your own peril.

These are the 25 Republicans who voted with Harry Reid to invoke cloture on the CR:  A parliament trick they all knew of, “but” used to hide behind, their disloyalty to their constituents.

The PASSWORD


At the San Diego border last Monday, about 200 people coming from Mexico gained entry to the United States all using the same key phrase – they claimed they had a:

“credible fear” of drug cartels! –  AND THAT’S ALL IT TAKES FOLKS!

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/08/11/Sudden-Flood-of-Asylum-Requests-At-U-S-Mexico-Border

Just click your dust stained jelly sandals together and say, “I am in CA.” “I am in CA.”

I’m curious, who gave the order that such a “catch phrase” was acceptable for asylum in America?

I’m sure that millions of Americans have no idea the below website exists or even if they thought something like this exist, they had no idea of what was on it.  After viewing this “government” website, I’m sure you’re going to want to play the Ray Stevens song “COME TO THE USA” – just to see if it’s accurate!

The “Phony” 3 D’s of Politics


 

The cover-ups that are taking place in our nations capital and to more extent in our news media has prompted me to consider how politicians and journalists sometimes respond to adversity.  My observations are rather general and based somewhat on anecdotal evidence. They also represent a somewhat visceral gut reaction to the goings-on that I have witnessed via the unreliable mass media. These things are clear to those of us who favor small constitutional government, but are often characterized as preferring anarchy to civil order. What we see in the various national capitols throughout the world and here in the state capitols are “big government” apologists behaving as if they were pre-appointed as rulers supreme in the future anticipated One World Government.  The world is turned upside down, and contradictions reign supreme.

When groups and the people who represent them are confronted with issues that may undermine their hold on the realm of their influence, they may react with a strategy called “Diffusion.”

  • Diffusion is the tactic that seeks to spread the blame across a wide horizon so that the complaints and demands of the “aggrieved” group seem small when compared to all intervening variables that have contributed to the imbalance.  (NSA snooping)

For many decades the diffusion ruse has been successful as locales, states and national entities have responded with increases and  benefits. But to many who hold the keys to the treasury, the diffusion argument has begun to lose steam. Despite the massive infusion of money and commitment, performance has diminished or stagnated.

Although similar to diffusion:

  • Deflection is more pointed, more targeted. The group that uses deflection as a blame-shifting tool usually identifies one or two specific “bogeymen” whom they accuse of being the cause of their non-performance.  Rather than identifying multiple interveners, the deflection strategy isolates one or two as the nemeses of adequate job performance.  Deflection is a direct and forceful attempt to shift blame and/or demonize an entity that may be unwilling to yield to the demands of the complainer. ( IRS Scandals involving Tea Party groups)

This tactic is similar to the one used by siblings who ride in the back seat of the family car…”she did it first” followed by “he made me do it.” It’s past time for taxpaying citizens to quote the driving father. “Do you want me to come back there?”

Citizens are becoming frustrated with a government structure that is too big, too unresponsive, to manipulative and unconstitutional. The deflection maneuvers annoy the citizens who are aware, and they respond with anger.

  • Detraction” is the most strident and dishonest of the defense mechanisms. Rather than attempting to diffuse or deflect blame for inadequate performance, the accused group seeks to undermine the credibility and reputations of its detractors. Detraction is not defensive, but is a wholly offensive approach. (Benghazi)

The campaign of detraction could result in the “truth” becoming a casualty because there are no limits, no rules. The gloves come off as the accused party attacks its critics, and accuses them of numerous nefarious schemes and actions. They assume the persona of a cornered rat as they lash out at anyone who challenges them or their positions.

If the challenger can hold fast and not back down, the detraction strategy is the forerunner of collapse. It is the weakest argument available, but it is delivered viciously. By withstanding the assault the challenger can prevail as the defender runs out of energy and arguments.

The Three-D’s of Diffusion, Deflection and Detraction will become more prevalent as the battle to restrain our bloated government becomes more heated.

These are the 3 items of political and journalistic behavior that must be recognized, and weighed for every newsworthy item we read or watch in the media.  You can “take it with a grain of salt” or define it for what it is.

At this point, I will introduce the 4th D – and it shall be called:

  • “Defined”

Whenever one is propagandized with the previous three D’s, the persons introducing them to you are offering you a “Defining Moment”, – You either Define it, or it will Define you!

Consider if you will, the “Phony News Scandals” of our nations present political administration.  Which “D” are you most in line with?

We must not waiver. We can never yield. There is too much at risk, and we must stand firm.

Documented – To Be Or Not To Be


2013 Immigration Bill
(A bill to be added to the Executive Powers stunt after the Dream Act failed, and then got shoved down our throats by “Dear Leader.”)
A response to news article printed by FOX News on April 15th, 2013

Millions of illegal immigrants would be put on a pathway to legal status and eventually have the chance to apply for citizenship in exchange for paying fines and taxes, under the terms of the immigration overhaul being unveiled this week.  Should we put down “tax day”, April 15th, 2013 as another “sellout day” by the Republican party.  We already know which party drew this up and clearly know which party can stop it.

The massive legalization program would be twinned with a multibillion-dollar effort to boost border security.   Yeah, right – we’ve heard that before, remember Reagan?  Notice that there are no specifics on WHEN this fence or border security is to begin or be completed.

They would remain in that provisional status for 10 years, able to work legally but barred from federal benefits like welfare or health care.   OOOPS, what a screwup!  The Obamacare Health Bill was created to give 30 million insurance-less (20 million illegals) insurance.  After 10 years they could seek green cards conferring permanent legal status, provided (what a word to use in these uncertain times) the security and fencing plans have been “substantially” (this word makes you feel good, doesn’t it?) carried out.   After another three years, those immigrants could petition for citizenship.

In total, the bill creates a minimum 13-year path to citizenship for up to 11 million illegal immigrants, costing them each $2,000 in fines plus additional fees. Applicants would have to meet other criteria as well in order to qualify.  As if they’re ever going to pay the $2000 in fines or additional fee’s!  About that “other criteria” – you mean things like “no criminal record” or “not already on government subsistence” – hehehehe, you crack me up:) roflmao!  Perhaps the government could use Drones as an enforcement tool for collection on these fines and to ensure the other criteria.  To date, enforcement of illegal alien laws that are already on the books, has been such an extreme success, that I don’t see how our nation could go wrong.  I mean, they’re serious this time, right?

Let’s keep an eye out for the brain trusts in DC that push this thru on our nation, and do the appropriate voting in 2014-16!  Oh that’s right, we as a people totally messed up our end of things in 2012 – NEVER MIND!
