The Blank Check

Some people, ok many people, accuse me of being to political. Perhaps I am. I almost always respond with the following question, “Name one area of your life that isn’t affected by some government law, rule, regulation or tax.” Here is a hint, you can’t because there isn’t one. But this isn’t about being political. This is about right and wrong. Allow me to elaborate.

It was around ten am when we heard the alarms going off on the ship across the pier from us. Of course we had no idea what was going on but everyone readied themselves to respond if needed. Although it was unspoken by everyone present we all noticed that the comforting words “This is a drill, this is a drill” were no being offered. There are few things in life more terrifying than an unknown danger. After an indeterminate amount of time had passed the alarms were silenced. Some time later we observed four gurneys were pushed up the ships gangway. They returned into view awhile later carrying four, sheet draped bodies. All of us watching, from only yards away, felt our stomach’s knot up with a powerful sense of tragedy. Everyone knew what those four gurneys carried. We knew that four men would never return home, never see their families or loved ones again. We didn’t know them but they were our brothers still. We, each in our own way, grieved.

We learned later just how tragic that story really was. Two sailors had been sent into a refrigerated compartment, nearly 35 years later the reason they were there escapes me. Climbing the ladder down into that space they had no way of knowing a pipe carrying the refrigerant had sprung a leak. The gas that kept the food cold also displaced the air. When the two sailors entered that compartment they quickly passed out, then suffocated.

At some point another sailor happened to walk by the open hatch and saw the two men laying on the floor. Concerned he called out to them. Getting no response he called out for help then climbed down the ladder to help his shipmates. Another sailor had heard his “man down” call for help and sent yet another passing sailor to get the corpsman and some more help, then he too, climbed down into that space to help his shipmates. By this time the commotion was starting to attract a crowd. As another sailor began to climb into the space he was restrained by a shipmate who had reasoned that everyone who entered that space had, at the very least, passed out. Fortunately, the mans reasoning made sense and no one else went into that space until the rescue team arrived.

Many veterans are mercilessly teased when they note the fact that when they enlisted they wrote a blank check to the United States of America for any amount up to and including their very lives. I know, I have been so treated. Yet, it is as true a statement of fact as can be made and, sadly that check has been cashed far to many times. Democrats and their supporters label what happened that day an accident or failure of work place safety rules. Of course it was an accident. No one that day planned to die. No one that day likely even contemplated dying. Yet four men paid the ultimate price for loving their country enough to serve and caring about their shipmates. For what ever reason Democrats can’t seem to acknowledge that. That is wrong, so very wrong.

Today, our veterans need us more than ever. While there are many groups doing their level best to help as many vets as they can, it is inescapable that the government they served, considers them expendable. This is wrong on so many levels. God bless Donald Trump for doing as much as he can. Because of the nature of the executive branches powers and the scope of the problem, he will never be able to solve the many problems facing vets today on his own. He needs congress’s help to effectively address those issues. The sad fact is that nearly all of congress is only interested in securing their reelections, padding their bank accounts and increasing their own power. Time and time again when given the choice to help our vets or reward illegal aliens for making it across the border, congress has chosen the lawbreakers over it’s good and faithful servants. That, my friends, borders on evil.

Democrats, as a general rule, act this way by rote. They have mouthed support for the military while actively undermining it all my adult life. To expect of them anything else is to not understand just how much they have always despised the military. The idea that after some forty years of hating the military they will suddenly change their minds is about as realistic as that Unicorn trap available in three colors for $19.99. Don’t misunderstand where I am going here. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but as a veteran there is no way I could ever support a democrat or a republican that acts like a democrat. The lives and well being of my brothers and sisters is far more important than congressman Skippy’s next PAC contribution or choice committee assignment.

Today, when it comes to the treatment of our veterans vs illegal aliens, tragically, far to many republicans behave like democrats. Again, don’t misunderstand where I’m going here. As a first generation American I totally support legal, merit based, moderate immigration levels. However, I see no need to import millions of welfare recipients or people who proactively hate America. As a veteran I am both deeply offended at the treatment of my brothers and sisters by the country we served, and the demand by that same government that people who have no legal right to be here should be cared for better than those of us who wrote that check.

You can call me to political. You can say I’m being overly melodramatic. You can say anything that makes you feel better. A $255 death benefit and a folded flag is nothing compared to free housing, food stamps, free medical care and education as well as being protected from the consequences of violating the law. As for me, every time I see a story about an illegal alien getting special treatment in a sanctuary city, every time I hear about a rape, robbery or murder committed by an illegal alien, I flash back to those four gurneys being wheeled down the pier.

The government cashed those four brave men’s checks to cater to an ungrateful, America hating group of lawbreakers. Perhaps the biggest tragedy of all is that so many Americans simply don’t care. Because I know this I weep for my brothers. I weep for my sisters. Most of all, I weep for my country.

The Curse Of The Grand Narrative

Hitlers minister of propaganda said it best when he was quoted instructing today’s democrats that, for a lie to be believed, it needed to be “big” and “repeated often.” Being liars by nature and necessity democrats, liberals and progressives have taken Herr Gobbels ideas and run with them as far and as fast as they could. The damage to individuals and our freedom over the last fifty years has been beyond comprehension.

Perhaps nowhere is this better illustrated than the now mindless acceptance of “narratives”. Narratives are nothing more than wish based fantasies given a forum. They only require public school victims, a compliant media and a healthy dose of cognitive dissonance to flourish.

Being based in fantasy a narrative requires no proof, only belief. Any belief will do so long as it is unquestioned, accepted fully, advances the liberal agenda and damages or destroys the correct parties. For example:

Narrative: The Children Must Die or Abortion is Healthcare.

On 25 February 2019, a day that will live in infamy, democrats, secure in the knowledge that the media would cover for them and knowing that a nation of public school victims probably wouldn’t know the difference anyway, voted to allow fully born children to be killed. These precious infants, who had the uncalled for temerity to survive an abortion attempt must now, democrats said resoundingly, die. The sickening excuse they offer in defense of sacrificing a child at the alter of abortion is “the mothers health.” It would seem self evident that, once born, the precious child now has no physical effect on the “mothers health.” No matter they say, abortion at any time, for any reason, must be maintained. This includes the barbaric practice of partially delivering a child then shoving a pair of scissors or other similar object into the babies brain. Democrats call this “Partial Birth” abortion. Murder would be more accurate. In the eyes of liberals, democrats and progressives (there is really no difference between them) the forty plus million babies aborted to date is a small price to pay to advance an agenda. Let that sink in then ask yourself, if these people are willing to kill babies after they have been born what else are they capable of?

Narrative: Slavery and Reparations or You Owe Me White Guy.

Today’s liberals have a unique definition of slavery. Slavery, as defined by liberals, means old white guys of over a hundred and fifty years ago. The fact that no one alive participated in that period and no one alive suffered as a slave during that period is conveniently ignored. These same self righteous liberals give modern moslems, the largest practitioners of slavery today, a free pass on their devotion to the practice. Kamala Harris’s family owned slaves. If she wants to pay on her own I say more power to her. I am a first generation American and no one in my family ever owned a slave. So I say keep your grubby, greedy hands out of my pocket.

Narrative: The Virtuous “Immigrant” or Walls Don’t Work You Racist.

Democrats want us to believe that we are a nation of immigrants. It is a compelling sound bite that carries the faint and distant echo of truth. In fact, we are a nation of citizens who have chosen to adhere to a certain set of uniquely American values. The fact that some 60% of illegal aliens are allowed receive welfare by democratic policies indicts those democrats as the underminers of America and the values it was founded upon. Liberals believe that anyone who can successfully violate our border must not only be rewarded with your money but must not even be called to account. They must even be given the vote. That explains the violent opposition to building a border wall. Walls work. In Israel, Hungry and a dozen other places walls have been tremendously effective at limiting illegal immigration. Liberals know that illegal aliens vote (illegally I must add) overwhelmingly for democrats. As their union and black power bases fade liberals see illegal aliens as the much needed replacements. It is also convenient that so many of these illegals come from socialist backgrounds making them willing to vote here for the same conditions that destroyed their home countries. For democrats its a two for one deal where only America and the hard working American taxpayer lose.

Narrative: Trump/Russia or Evil White People Stole The Election.

There is an overwhelming lack evidence that Trump ever colluded with anyone to “steal” the election. There is also overwhelming evidence that liberals in the FBI, Justice Department, IRS and dozens of highly placed democrats committed not dozens but hundreds of felonies. For the last two years Trumps opposition has created criminal timeline after criminal timeline only to have each and every one completely destroyed with actual evidence to the contrary. Democrats not only protect moslem slave traders and illegal aliens that murder Americans but criminally liable fellow democratic politicians and so called public servants. You and I are apparently expendable as long as they maintain their power and influence. As uncle Jed would say, “Ponder on that fer a spell.”

Narrative: Public Education or Public Indoctrination Centers.

Can we dispense with the so called public education system? There is little actual education effected in schools anymore. Loved by teachers unions, whole word reading was totally discredited as an effective educational approach to teaching reading skills in the 1920’s yet it remains in effect today. Liberals and teachers unions, but I repeat myself, refuse to allow students to actually learn anything outside the bounds of political correctness. Today’s teachers, themselves victims of pervasive indoctrination, now indoctrinate our children on the “virtues” of every lunatic idea and discredited principle that comes down the pike. Students cannot do basic math by hand, history is revised on a yearly basis to incorporate the latest politically correct nonsense and even something as non political as basic science is twisted and massaged to fit a left wing ideological agenda. The sad fact is that a sixth grader in the year 1900 could, intellectually (and probably physically as well), out perform most of today’s college graduates. We are now, sadly by design, a nation of public school victims. That is beyond tragic, that is an act of war.

Liberals have dozens of narratives and today, far to many people think and believe in narratives. They do so because so because it requires no thought. It takes virtually no effort and they are rewarded for doing so by similarly indoctrinated family and friends, educators, pop culture icons and the media.

Few public school victims know, or even want to know, the actual truth on a great many subjects critical to their well being. Those who want to know are seldom given the capacity to learn the truth by their so called educators. When these truth seekers step outside the bounds of political correctness they are quickly derided and abused by their tolerant liberal friends. The fact is students in school and even college, are trained to think in emotionally driven sound bites. They accept this indoctrination as normal. This is why it is so difficult to simply have a conversation with them.

It is also a convenient method of control.

Being well trained to think under such a limiting process allows you to be easily manipulated. The process is so well practiced that people seldom realize just how “smoothly” they are being manipulated. If you stop and actually process what liberals would have you believe you would soon realize that you were being carefully directed to be offended, upset and or angry as long as possible for as often as possible. They would have you in this state over things that are often manifestly untrue. The unpleasant fact is, Democrats keep their liberal base agitated to keep them from thinking. Thus the true purpose of the “narrative” is finally revealed. When we think, they lose.

Now you know how and why you are being manipulated, question is, what are you going to do about it?

The Democrat Objective, Race To The Bottom

So the “shining paragons of virtue”, ie democrats, bravely “captured” the house from the “evil” republicans this fall. The news media went orgasmic and liberals everywhere began burnishing their hater credentials with glazed eyes and a renewed fury. Lost in the cacophony of self congratulations and impeachment plans was the unalterable fact that their senate conquest plans failed miserably. Given that very little of what they push through the house is likely to survive in the senate I suspect their “victory” will have the same effect the German V-2 rockets had in WWII. It will produce a lot of smoke and noise, hurt a lot of innocent people but ultimately change very little. Sadly, democrats and their supporters are okay with that. They can posture equally well with or without the senate.

Democrats are now being led by such luminous figures as the stunningly ignorant Ocasio-Cortez (one simply has to wonder exactly how she earned her degree given such complete ignorance of even basic concepts), the girl friend abusing Keith “I’m a moslem so its okay” Ellison and grandstanding presidential hopefuls Kamilla “Don’t I look good” Harris, Cory “I wannabe Spartacus” Booker and fauxahauntas herself Elizabeth “the virgin squaw” Warren. There are also dozens of other lesser known and equally demented democrats vying to outdo every other democrat in their race to the bottom. Democratic voters, backed up by paid and sometimes violent protesters, creepy billionaires and fringe true believers, encourage these political hacks with mind numbed zeal at every election.

Having observed liberals, democrats and progressives (remember, there is no difference between them) for nearly forty years I know some things. Example, they only value free speech as a tool. As a concept it is counter productive to their agenda. They simply cannot have people using free speech to regularly expose all the fatal flaws in their positions. Worse still, at least as long as there are voters still capable of independent thought, is exposing liberal, democrat, progressives often blatant, mind bending hypocrisy. They will exploit free speech as a tool to assume positions of power and with the media and pop culture behind them they have done so quite effectively. However, once ensconced in, what they believe are their entitled positions of power, they will eliminate free speech as fast as they can. Remember, they “know” what is best for you and me. Understanding that free speech jeopardizes their positions of power they will pursue its destruction at every turn.

Liberals also love to, from their walled and armed guarded communities, hate America. Nothing demonstrates this better than the border “crisis” and immigration. Democrats are perfectly fine with massive, unchecked immigration. No illegal alien rapist, pedophile, thief or murderer must ever be prosecuted, punished, deported or, heaven forbid, separated from his family. They demand that we adapt America to fit the illegal immigrant instead of the immigrant assimilating to America. They find it perfectly reasonable to give illegal aliens tens of thousands of tax payer dollars in welfare, medical care, housing, legal assistance, education etc while ignoring our homeless veterans and retirees living on the pittance of social security. These are stunningly brazen displays of hatred of America and Americans that no one wants to talk about.

Here in my own state we just had a protracted battle over “medical” marijuana. When the state legislature stepped in and passed a law making “medical” marijuana medical by having it prescribed by a Doctor in dosage form from an actual pharmacy, liberals promptly went to court to have the law blocked. This proves that the goal was never medical use, it was recreational use. The plan was to have pot shops manned by purple haired, nose ringed, tattooed drug dealers serving any and all comers on every street corner. It took the legislature some time to see through the charade of pot pushers hiding behind sick people but they finally managed to do so. Proposition 2 had the additional benefits (from the drug dealers and democrats perspective) of decriminalizing pot by giving drug users a free “medical” get out of jail card and legalizing drug dealers. You can bet the drug dealers are ecstatic at the money making and laundering possibilities medical pot provides them not to mention how much can be made on the black market from “medical” pot cards. Prop 2 was never anything but a carefully crafted effort to normalize drug use. Liberal politicians, fully insulated in their gated and guarded communities, love drug addicts almost as much as they love illegal aliens.

In any area of life you can name, liberals are driving America down into the sewer as fast as they can. Only in the mind of a liberal can:

A man be “Women of the Year” – Bruce Jenner

A rat be the equal of a boy – PETA

A religion of peace be the one that throws gays off the roofs of buildings – islam

A group of masked, violent, rioting thugs be called peaceful protesters – antifa

Pulling a baby halfway out of the womb and crushing its skull be called a “choice” – abortion

A record cold year be proof of global warming – climate change

Can the meaning of the word “is” be confusing – the pervert Clinton and his defenders

Can you smoke your way to better health – recreational/medical pot

Can the women (and eardrum) abusing crap known as rap be considered art – pop culture

Can no evidence be proof and conviction at the same time – Russian collusion

Due process to conservatives/white men accused of anything be unreasonable – Kavanaugh

Are purveyors of hate lauded as defenders of decency – southern poverty law center

Can a military Chaplin talking about God be committing a hate crime – freedom from religion

This list could literally fill a book but I think, gentle reader, you can ascertain where liberals, democrats and progressives not only are coming from but where they would lead us to.

While it is true that there are many vile republicans (Corker, Ryan, Flake, Collins as examples) who are willing to lead America to the bottom of the cesspool via the slow road, the liberals, progressives and democrats want us to take the express elevator. Let that sink in.

2017 Year In Review Part Two – Illegal Immigration

There are few issues as “hot button” as immigration. As a first generation American I understand that because immigration to me is incredibly important. The way it is portrayed in today’s insanely biased so called main stream media, there are only two sides to the immigration debate, the loving, tolerant and understanding open borders supporters and the evil, hateful wall builders. These are of course caricatures but caricatures are simple to explain and easy to understand, thus they are used.

When most people think of immigration it tends to be in one of two ways. The first view, heavily pushed by the media and indoctrinated in the public school system, is that of the hard working, play by the rules (except for the whole illegal entry thing which is dutifully ignored), family oriented, taxpaying immigrant seeking only a better life for him his kind, cookie baking wife and ever tolerant, understanding and racially profiled kids. The second view of immigration, no less forced, is that of a criminal underclass seeking the complete overthrow of our government. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in between.

Historically speaking, legal immigration has been a good thing for America. It was certainly a good thing for me and I am truly grateful for the opportunities being born in America has afforded me. That being said I have to point out a few realities about immigration that the “open borders” people either don’t know or refuse to concede to.

First, no one has the “right” to immigrate here.

Second, Constitutional rights only apply to American citizens.

Third, the fact that you were able to break into America does not entitle you to anything.

Fourth, there is no such thing as an “anchor” baby.

Fifth, your entire family, out to 27 generations, is not entitled to follow you here.

Sixth, America has not just the right but the duty to determine who gets to immigrate here.

Seventh, none of the above is intolerant or hateful.

A final point. Illegal immigration involves so much more than the media will tell you about. There are considerations far beyond simply how many and from where the people we let into America come from.

Using the last few of years as a reference point lets contemplate some obvious and not so obvious consequences of unchecked illegal immigration.

We begin with crime.

In 1980 federal and state prisons housed fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens. The number today hovers around 55,000, accounting for more than twenty-five percent of all prisoners in federal prisons. There are an additional approximately 297,000 criminal aliens incarcerated in state and local prisons.

2017
Consider these shocking numbers from just couple of years ago. In Florida illegal aliens account for 40% of all murder convictions, in New York 34% and in Arizona, a state brutalized by the Kenyans administration and his media minions for simply seeking to enforce federal immigration law, 17.8%.

Put another way, during that time frame illegal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in Arizona, California, Florida, New York and Texas combined. In body count numbers that’s 7,085 victims of illegal immigration. Put yet another way, that’s 7,085 people who did not have to die. As an aside, the illegal alien population in those states is only 5.6% (US Census data) of the states population. Little has changed over the last couple of years.

It’s not much better in other states. You simply do not know about these kinds of things because the media has engaged in a complete and total black out of the term illegal alien when reporting on crime.

The long going determination by the left to hide the astounding levels of criminality by illegal aliens extends even to state and local governments. In 2006, Colorado a state rapidly sinking into liberal lunacy, passed a law requiring the state Attorney General to determine the costs of incarcerating illegal aliens and bill the federal government for reimbursement. The cost via the number of incarcerated illegal aliens was so high that the state AG only sent the government a bill for half the real cost. Torn between trying to be semi fiscally responsible and sheltering the narrative about illegal immigration, the state decided to protect the criminals. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over don’t it?

Next, lets consider Money.

According to Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico), 2017 was a record-breaking year for receiving remittances by Mexicans abroad. In the first eleven months of 2017, Mexicans sent home $26,167,00,000. This follows another record setting year in 2016 when $24.1 billion left the American economy. To put this in context, Mexico’s second largest source of income in 2017 was the export of oil for $18.5 billion. While it is tragic that Mexicans send so much money home to fund a corrupt, abusive and failing government, the thing that should concern Americans the most is the fact that these dollars can not be used to help our own citizens or grow our own economy. As the pervert Clinton would likely have said, “How many poor children could $26 billion feed?”

To rub some salt into the wound consider that taxpayers at the federal, state and local levels payed out nearly $134.9 billion to cover the costs incurred by 12.5 million illegal aliens and roughly 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. In round figures approximately $8,075 per illegal alien family member. The math leads to a total of around $115,894,597,664. In 2013 the total was $113 billion. You shouldn’t have to be a noble laureate in math to realize this is an unsustainable upwards trajectory. (Cloward Piven anyone?)

To those who would say, but sailor, they pay more in taxes than that. I would ask you to simply learn the truth or stop lying. Here are the numbers. Illegal aliens payed in federally $22,191,097,700. Subtract what they received just in tax credits alone $6,743,200,000 and that leaves a balance of $15,447,897,700. Well, at least they are paying something, right? Wrong, unless you’re using common core math. The combined total of state and local government general expenditures on illegal aliens is estimated at $18,571,428,571 billion. So much for that argument.

What you don’t know about Healthcare.

Incredibly, thanks to yet another main stream media blackout, no one even knows about the healthcare disasters being forced on America to satisfy some demented idea of “tolerance.”

An example of what we could be looking at was recently provided by Germany. The Germans equivalent of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is The Robert Koch Institute (RKI). RKI is responsible for monitoring infectious diseases and managing outbreaks. RKI is reporting significant increases in communicable diseases across Germany. Its annual report on “Infectious Disease Epidemiology in Germany states, “the institute concluded that recent increases in dengue fever, Hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, malaria, tuberculosis and other communicable diseases are directly attributable to the migrant stream currently pouring into Germany.”

These infections, rare in Europe for decades, pose a significant threat to the general health and welfare of native Germans. While Germany has a first class healthcare system that should be able to successfully handle the outbreak of a single disease, even a serious one, the sheer number of refugees and the diversity of infectious diseases they appear to be spreading is straining the German public health infrastructure to its limits.

The U.S. experienced a mass migration event similar to the German refugee crisis under the Obama administration. The arrival of massive numbers of illegal aliens was accompanied by significant increases in Dengue Fever, Tuberculosis and Swine Flu. Fortunately these outbreaks were quickly brought under control. In 2014, a wave of unaccompanied alien children appear to have been the source of the deadly outbreak of the EV-D68 Enterovirus that quickly began spread throughout the western states. Feeling all warm and fuzzy yet? Better get checked out.

Consider some recent health statistics in light of what you have now learned.

Between 2010 and 2014 the Minnesota Department of Health reported two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis. It is illustrative to point out that seventy-one of those cases were diagnosed within one year of their arrival while the remaining 225 were diagnosed in the following year. The number of active TB cases reported among refugees showing up in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public. See a pattern?

Costing an average of $17,000 for each case of successfully treated active TB Minnesota taxpayers coughed up roughly $5 million to treat the 296 cases of active TB diagnosed among refugees between 2010 and 2014. It broke down this way. $3 million for the 161 Somali refugees diagnosed with active TB, and an additional $2 million to treat the 132 refugees diagnosed with active TB who were not born in Somalia.

Sadly Minnesota is not alone. Between 2014 and 2015 the following states reported these numbers.

Wisconsin, 27, Nebraska & Louisiana, 21, Michigan, 19, Vermont, 17, Colorado, 16, Florida & Ohio 11, Kentucky, 9, Idaho, 7, Indiana & N. Dakota, 4 and California, 3.

As the numbers of infections and diseases continue to grow more and more politically correct state and federal administration types are contributing to the media blackout by making these kinds of numbers more and more difficult to obtain.

Corruption and the abandonment of reason.

Then there is the culture of corruption fostered by those SJW’s whose sole mission is the fundamental transformation of America.

A stunning video, released by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, shows an operative going undercover to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and being told that if you’re from Syria and used a faked passport to get into the United States, you can still get immigration services.

AFDI operative Laura Loomer went to a USCIS office “and told an official that she had met a family of illegal immigrants from Syria and wanted to make sure they got immigration services.”

She informed the official the family was afraid to come into the office because, “they don’t have documents because they came here illegally” using fake passports.

In the video the USCIS official didn’t even hesitate. There are cases, he said, “we waive sometimes the passport, because they are unable to provide that documentation.” The official continued, the real name really didn’t matter either, “We are going to use the name on the passport as AKA, ‘also known as.’”

The video further explained that the government employee was simply, “explaining the law as it stands.” In other words, any terrorist or career criminal can walk freely into America with the unwavering support of liberal social justice warriors in government and congress.

It gets even worse. The IRS Inspector Generals Office reported that the tax-collection agency knows that more than one million illegal immigrants have used stolen Social Security numbers of citizens to file fraudulent tax returns, collecting billions of dollars in fraudulent refunds. Irritatingly, the IRS makes no serious effort to get those stolen dollars back. Not only that but the IRS has done virtually nothing to stop the practice. It hasn’t even notified a meaningful percentage of those Americans victimized by identity fraud that they have been victimized. The IRS has known this issue for at least the last five years. A half-hearted test program designed to attack the problem was quietly scrapped because it had virtually no effect.

According to Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., there’s really only one explanation for this, the IRS ignoring this problem. Brat believes the government ignoring one of its fundamental responsibilities. He explained,

Koskinen was in front of us, and I asked him, ‘If you know that you have illegal aliens and they’re asking for tax refunds or asking for any tax status, would you do anything about it?’ He said no. I was stunned,” Brat said. Koskinen made the same assertion in his Senate testimony. “When he says it’s not my job to report illegal, much less unethical behavior, we’ve got a problem,” Brat added.

Part of that problem is that Koskinen, and liberals like him, are not yet doing ten to twenty at the nearest federal penitentiary.

Finally, the lie of DACA.

Lets be honest, DACA is a blatantly unconstitutional, temporary amnesty program. It’s sole function is to reward underachievers and criminals. If a few good people slip through the cracks so be it.

The vast majority of DACA recipients are not in fact children, averaging between 25-30 years of age who are fully conversant with both the language and culture of their home country.

Neither are they diligent college students. DACA recipients college graduation rates are below the national average. This is despite being given in state tuition rates in far to many states and preference over American citizens in many other areas.

Nor are they service oriented. Less that 1% of DACA recipients serve in America’s military.

Sadly, for many DACA recipients their idea of self sufficiency is to attach themselves to the welfare system then complain about how little they are getting.

Most egregious of all is that virtually anyone can claim DACA status. Successful applicants can have up to three misdemeanors. These can range from graffiti-spraying to drunk driving to wife-beating to gun violations. In other words things that would land you or me in jail are ignored so illegal aliens can access your wallet through federal, state and local programs.

Now don’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy all over? Don’t you just feel all social justice warrior like knowing how badly you and your country are being beaten up to make some spoiled, ill educated liberals feel good about themselves?

As the pervert Clinton is alleged to have said once, “better put some ice on that.”

2017 The Year in Review Part 1: Democrats And Blood In The Streets

I believe that in a very short time we will look back at 2017 and understand it to be the extremely pivotal year that, in ways that many may have not noticed, it really was.

One of the most tragic and destructive legacies of the Kenyans reign over America has been the institutionalization and normalization of lawlessness at nearly every level of society. From the Nation of Islam to The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter and even Antifa, liberals have actively and openly stoked the flames of racial hatred and division and, with the exception of the election of Trump, suffered not the slightest consequence of importance. Under the Kenyans tutelage even thoughts were deemed criminal if they did not comport to the supreme leaders ideology.

It has become blindingly obvious to anyone willing to look that the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, INS and a host of other federal agencies have been turned against conservative Americans. One can only hope that Trump is able to restore a sense of law and order to a deeply weaponized American government.

Among many things that became clearly apparent in 2017 was the absolute bloody history of the democratic party. After some fifty years spent successfully hiding their Jim Crow legacy behind the bodies of its victims, the carnage wrought by the policies of the party of the “little guy” are becoming to massive to conceal any longer. Only the most mind numbed liberal can be satisfied that Kate Stienlie’s killer got off with time served, that the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that it is fine for black males to run from cops, that the “knock out” game was so very carefully ignored by everyone but it’s victims or that the Portland, Oregon Police Department has decided to stop identifying gang members and purge the gang member database it has developed over the last two decades to appear non racist. Similar symptoms of liberal idiocy, are appearing throughout America and are praised by liberals as good and decent things. Make no mistake, liberals will continue to deny the painfully obvious and the media will maintain its news blackout of the carnage even as the number of bodies and victims is beginning to reach a critical mass that even they can no longer conceal.

In 2016, the latest figures I was able to find, the FBI reported there were 1.2 million violent crimes committed in America. This represents a 4.1% increase over 2015. It is the second year in a row violent crimes have risen. To put some perspective on this the current crime level represents 386 violent crimes for every 1000 people.

The good news, if you can call it that, is that much of the continuing spike in violent crime comes from a relatively few and, almost exclusively democrat led and managed, cities. In order, here are the top ten offenders.

Detroit, Michigan: 2,047 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 303 murders.
St. Louis, Missouri: 1,913 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 188 murders.
Memphis, Tennessee: 1,820 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 196 murders.
Baltimore, Maryland: 1,780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 318 murders.
Rockford, Illinois: 1,659 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 26 murders.
Kansas City, Missouri: 1,655 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 129 murders.
Cleveland, Ohio: 1,631 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 135 murders.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 1,533 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 141 murders.
Little Rock, Arkansas: 1,531 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 42 murders.
Oakland, California: 1,426 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, 85 murders.

I bet you were surprised that Chicago wasn’t on the list. I wouldn’t take much comfort from that fact. In 2015, Chicago reported 478 homicides, leading all other American cities. In Chicago this year people are still getting shot in insanely high numbers. By the middle of October, 2017, 1,000 more people were shot than at the same time last year. Of the 3,500 shooting victims this year so far nearly 600 died. In Chicago the murder rate tends to be concentrated in a few areas. Two neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, have homicide rates of more than 100 per 100,000 residents. Similarly, 45 percent of shootings in St. Louis this year have been clustered in just eight neighborhoods. New Orleans reports a similar finding.

Consider these trends as an ancillary to the Ferguson Effect and another of the Kenyan’s legacies, the war on cops. In many large cities cops are now extremely hesitant, and not without good reason, to engage in proactive policing. Far to often they are harassed or assaulted by bystanders when exercising their duties. Police have even been openly targeted for assassination on multiple occasions. The criminals know that liberal city and/or county prosecutors, state administrations, a corrupt judiciary and politically correct press will spend more effort “understanding” and “commiserating” with them as “victims” of racism or white privilege, than prosecuting them for actual crimes committed.

There are few places where the Ferguson Effect is more pronounced than in New York City. The self avowed communist mayor there has abandoned the policies that made NYC once one of the safest large cities in America. The mayor, his administration, a complicit judiciary and media as well as the thugs, gangs and organized criminal enterprises operating in and around the city have either bought hook, line and sinker the lie that cops are gunning down black men at will, are all closet racists or have decided to use these false narratives to their advantage. The fact that the vast majority of murdered blacks are killed by blacks is not only well known but decisively and studiously ignored by liberal leaders and their media and judicial accomplices. Simply observing that undeniable fact causes one to be labeled a racist.

This evil strategy, blaming fictional institutional racism for every ill, real or perceived, experienced by black people has been an article of faith to liberals for the last couple of decades. The newly invented “white privilege” was created to disguise the highly developed sense of black (and to a slightly lesser degree, hispanic and moslem) self entitlement created and nurtured by liberals. Consider the following cities as prime examples of where liberal policies on not just crime but poverty have been running unchecked for a very long time.

Baltimore. Democrat mayors with 18,000 consecutive days in charge. Poverty rate: 23.6%.

Chicago. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 24.7%.

Detroit. Democrat mayors with 30,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 39.3%.

Philadelphia. Democrat mayors with 20,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate 31.4%.

St. Louis. Democrat mayors with 15,000 consecutive days in charge, city council 90% democrat. Poverty rate: 28.5%.

I can hear all you statisticians saying correlation does not always equal causation. After all, everyone who ate a carrot a hundred and fifty years ago died. True, but this is just a tiny sample from a much larger pool of dramatically similar evidence. Sometimes correlation does equal causation.

As if there are not enough criminals in America liberals insist on importing as many more as fast as they can. I understand that not every “refugee” or illegal alien is a “criminal” but honesty requires me to acknowledge that a high percentage of them are and often of the most heinous type. By definition anyone here illegally is already a criminal and I can come up with no sane reason to accept and reward (cash welfare, medical, housing, food stamps, child tax credit, drivers licenses, in state college tuition etc) people who have chosen to violate the law. One cannot help but note that, in the importation of islamic “refugees” the vast majority (up to 90% depending on which period you evaluate) are males age 17-45. If you are wondering why this could be important consider that I have just given you the demographic of every standing army on the planet.
As a first generation American I am certainly not against legal immigration. However, I am against importing by the millions people who adamantly and sometimes violently, refuse to assimilate. These are the “immigrants” or “refugees” whose main function seems to be converting the most successful, inventive, tolerant, prosperous and freest country in the history of mankind into the hell hole they “fled”.
Liberals accept the importing of hundreds of thousands of moslems without question. They do so knowing full well that moslems generally refuse to assimilate and they will attempt to force their religion on everyone by threat, intimidation, force and lawfare. As moslems, many will rape, kill and plunder because their religion allows it (in the koran I read these actions are demanded from a devout moslem as part of his religious duties to further the influence of islam) and the moslems know the liberals will cover for them.
It is a sad fact that for the last several years virtually every “major” media outlet has refused to list the ethnicity/immigration status of criminals unless they are white males. They have taken this strategy to the absurd extreme of labeling, for example, a Mexican illegal alien as white if he has or uses an anglo sounding name. This strategy has been used to effectively cover up what amounts to a rape epidemic by so called “immigrants” of, as far as I can tell, unparalleled proportions in American history. The main perpetrators seem to come from south of the border countries, African countries and islamic countries.
The average moslem “refugee” and average illegal alien share some common attributes highly valued by liberals. Both tend to have less than a high school education, virtually no marketable skills, little to no understanding of or ability or even desire to use the English language, commit a wide variety of crimes at a much higher rate that native born citizens and are heavily welfare dependent. They each demand special accommodations at every turn. Subtract the language component and you have the demographic of your average street thug. Hey, no worries. Liberals believe that once the America so many of us grew up in has been destroyed by these “immigrants” they can rebuild it correctly.
Until then as long as the illegal aliens/refugees vote democratic and work cheaply for the Chamber of Commerce no one in government will do anything substantive to solve the problem. Remember dear reader you and I, like Kate Stienle, are a sacrifice liberals are willing to make.

Everything You Thought You Knew About Language Is Wrong

I have probably listened to Michael Savage a total of fifteen minutes in my whole life. I have read some of his books and columns. When he talks about losing the language he is spot on. Without language we are left with virtually no tools to frame a concept, produce a counter argument or even describe a concept or principle. Controlling the language was every bit as important to the liberal (well intentioned or devoted fascist) as running academia, the media and popular culture. Consider how far from the plain meaning of words we have gotten.

Bipartisanship. This touchstone of liberals does not mean to them what it means to you, me and most likely, the vast majority of good intentioned but misinformed liberals. The average public school victim, I mean graduate, hears this golden word and thinks of a group of legislators gathered around the well of the House with the well being of America as their sole concern. Alternatively some people think of a group of legislators meeting and compromising until something, generally good, and politically expedient is worked out. In this fantasy scenario, everyone gets a little of what they wanted but no one “wins” completely. Liberals desperately want for you to believe both of these scenarios. In reality nothing could be further from the truth. History proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

While many republicans (RINOS all) have swallowed these myths and desperately continue trying to make them reality, the fact is that liberals only have one definition of bipartisanship, my way or the highway. I first became aware of their duplicity when the promise, codified in law, to support the South Vietnamese Army after Americas withdrawal, was ruthlessly ignored. Estimates vary but millions were murdered, tortured, raped and sent to concentration camps. Liberals knew about the murders, executions, rapes and torture but simply didn’t care. The victims of the NV communist regime were acceptable collateral damage to the liberal democrats and their supporters at the time. The press knew about the carnage but covered for their liberal pals as best and as often as they could. In the end their narrative survived and that was all that mattered. As an aside, Ken Burns continues the cover up with his alleged documentary on the war.

The process or “bipartisanship” was continued with the mythical border enforcement promised for Reagan’s signature on the misguided amnesty he signed off on, with the never intended budget cuts promised to Bush senior for his tax increase, all the way to today’s current “gun control” arguments (just one more law will stem the tide of violence in this country). As further, and unnecessary proof of my argument, can anyone name a true conservative bill that the Kenyan little Barry ever signed off on during his illegal presidential term? Bipartisanship is like the mirage of water to the lost man in the desert, and produces for America, the same results.

Migrant, Migrants, Refugees. These terms are virtually indistinguishable from one another. These terms are used precisely because of the images they invoke, good, warmhearted, poor, honest, downtrodden people fleeing poverty and persecution, willing to work hard for their version of the American dream. The term migrant, which conveys an unspoken sense of legitimacy, is the current evolution of the highly accurate term illegal alien. We are led to believe that these migrants are, for example, the poor abused unwanted of our southern neighbors. We are told they only want a better life for them and their children. If this is true then why do these migrants work so desperately to recreate in America the slums they left? Why do they send back to Mexico alone billions of dollars every year? This money ends up in the pockets of Mexican drug lords and corrupt south of the border politicians. Why do they overwhelmingly support a group “La Raza, (translation, The Race) dedicated to “returning” much of America to Mexico? If they are so hardworking why are so many of them on welfare? If they are so invested in the American dream why do they so often refuse to learn and use English? Why do they so often self segregate? Interwoven among the “migrant” community are the DACA “children” many, if not most of them over the age of 19, including known gang members and enough criminals to scare the daylights out of reasonable people. Liberals still refer to them as children so they can blast people like me for reminding everyone that the simple fact is, these people have no legal right to be here.

Refugee is the current PC term for the militant moslem America haters being imported by both the government and churches as fast as the government can pay the churches for doing so. The term also carries with it a sense of moral duty. These, we are lectured at, are the brutally oppressed that we must care for. This is also total Barbara Streisand. The vast majority, around 99%, are devout and often militant moslems intent on “converting” America into their caliphate. The real oppressed, Christians in the middle east, are being routinely murdered, raped and tortured en masse by our refugees brethren and studiously ignored by the very churches who claim to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. These “poor” moslem refugees demand special accommodations at every turn, harbor violent and brutal criminals, mutilate young girls, teach that their men have the right and duty to rape non moslem women, engage in the horrific act of honor killings and, for now, have turned parts of the once great state of Michigan into a non moslem no go zone.

Liberals and democrats accept all this economic and personal carnage because the two classes, migrant and refugee, vote (nearly always illegally) almost exclusively democrat. This isn’t to say that liberal leadership is unaware of the evil they support, they just believe that once they fully gain control, they can scale back the destruction. This is a delusion of mind numbing proportions.

There are many other words liberals and democrats have corrupted.

Investing means simply raising taxes to spend more money we do not have on things and agencies we do not need.

Education means the indoctrination of yet another generation into the glories of socialism, perversion (disguised as sex education), revisionist history and anti American hatred.

Integrity means the ability to not get caught violating the letter and spirit of the law and if you do get caught, avoiding any consequences.

No reasonable, thinking person should allow themselves to be sucked into this linguistic mumbo jumbo.

The liberal way of thinking is created by the twisted definition of words. It produces, then covers for sick people like Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner and Bill Clinton. It creates bizarre concepts like social justice. It produces facts like blacks can’t, by virtue of their skin color, be racist. It manufactures crisis like the current college rape epidemic. It thrives on lies like “hands up, don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe.” It encourages, sorry, it demands the hubris of transgenderism.

Eventually, many liberals end up realizing just how shallow and vacuous their liberalism is and just how far from reason and reality they have strayed. Because they have so often invested their education, career, even their entire lives into their liberalism, change for them is quite difficult. A great many never even attempt to change. It’s easier to accept black lives matter, CNN or antifa as reasonable reactions to any who disturb their convoluted world view.

The lies that have to be believed to live this way are truly a burden unto themselves. Congratulations, you earned it.

Tolerance Equals Failure

I am an unusual person. By nearly every definition, today’s society/pop culture considers me irredeemably weird. I simply do not fit into any of their molds. I chuckle every time I think about that. As some examples consider the following.

I have been happily married to the same lovely young women for the last 32 years. I have never had an affair. I have worked for the same employer for 32 years. I held my part time tax job for 17 years. At work I show up on time and do more than expected of me. When I need to be somewhere I plan well enough that I do not need to race like some maniac loser to get to where I am going on time. When my gas guzzling Durango needed major repairs I paid the $1250 from my savings account. When I replace my car I buy well maintained used cars and pay them off as quickly as possible allowing me to sometimes go years without a car payment, not to mention the money I save on car insurance. When my daughter brought her new boyfriend over to meet me I took one look at the six pounds of metal protruding from his face, the six hundred tattoos, the pants desperately clinging to his hips and the gang colors he was wearing and told him to get the (insert colorful expletive here) out of my house. I gave up watching the sewer, aka network TV, including all the pay services, years ago and have never regretted it. I consciously refuse to subject myself to “popular” culture including music, music videos, most anything that comes out of hollywood today and 99% of anything at the supermarket checkout stand. I shop locally every chance I get. I actually read real books. I have never had, nor will I have, a twitter account. I only spend about two hours a week on facebook, mostly to play a couple of games I like. I have no body piercings or tattoos (which really makes me weird as I was the only enlisted man on my ship with no tattoos). I am religiously observant. I do not depend on anyone for anything I can do myself. Even worse, I expect others to be as responsible as I am.

In today’s culture all these traits mark me as a white privileged, right wing, intolerant, homophobic racist. They are mostly wrong of course. I say mostly because I am intolerant of many things, for example racism or political correctness or religious intolerance or, as in the case of black lives matter or antifa, outright hate. As one of my heroes once said I also, “Don’t much care for quitters.”

As I look out at the world my grand kids are taking their first tentative steps into I fear for them greatly. I place the source of that fear squarely on the shoulders of “tolerance.” That will seem an odd thing to say to many who read this. Never the less it is so and I’ll tell you why.

We tolerate the hatred spewed by black lives matter to make up for something no one alive was responsible for and no one alive participated in.

We tolerate the near mindless violence of antifa instead of arresting them and locking them away to show that violence for the sake of violence should never be tolerated.

We tolerate every childish temper tantrum thrown by immature college students instead of demonstrating that rules are meant to be followed and that changing the rules requires a process to be followed and that everyone’s rights to be considered.

We tolerate the abuse of language itself by calling illegal aliens undocumented migrants, welfare dependency compassion, abortion women’s health and referring to illegal aliens “constitutional” rights. For all you public school graduates the rights enumerated in the Constitution apply only to U.S. citizens and you don’t get citizenship simply because you managed to get cross the border.

We tolerate the abuse of the individual by major corporations, Google and Firefox as examples, as well as massive federal, state and local government overreach in the name of political correctness.

We tolerate a death worshiping cult that still practices slavery, child abuse, rape, animal abuse, murder and genocide in the name of tolerance. Yes I am referring to islam and I know these things because I study current events in moslem controlled countries and have read the only two books moslems read, the koran and the hadith. You should read them as well. Even more sad is that while we make constant excuses for an evil ideology posing as a religion we allow constant attacks on Christianity by anyone whose feelings are hurt.

We tolerate the massive and total failure of the public education system even as we throw more and more money into that tragically flawed system. My grandchildren were not taught American history to any level of proficiency but can readily name all “52 genders.” Given the product turned out I would have to say that many teachers and administrators are vastly overpaid.

We tolerate constant abuse by the homersexual and so called “transgender” gaystapo. They seek not to engender compassion but the complete and utter destruction of anyone that does not fully endorse their lifestyle of risky behaviors. Personally I don’t care if you want to place an excrement covered penis in your mouth but I am not going to let you define such an act as an act of love, let alone normal. I don’t care if some guy wants to wear a dress and makeup but you have no right to be in my granddaughters bathroom or locker room. I don’t care if you were feeling like a girl when I called you sir, you don’t get to sue or harass me because I “misgendered” you. Nor do any of these behaviors qualify you for special rights. The fact that a handful of gay activists took over the American Psychiatric Association and voted to eliminate homersexuality from the diagnostic manual does not mean these behaviors are in fact normal.

We tolerate the massive invasion of our country by anyone who can get here, including vile gang members who have “relatives” here. We tolerate billions of our hard earned tax dollars given to illegal aliens that could be better spent on our veterans, or our homeless, or our mentally ill or even our infrastructure.

We tolerate the erasure of history by hate mongers.

We tolerate judicial tyranny.

We tolerate lying career extortionists, uhm, I mean politicians.

We tolerate a proven beyond a doubt fake media.

I could go on but I think you are beginning to see my point. Tolerance can be a beautiful thing but tolerance can also be a powerful weapon. Americans are nearing the point where we are about to “tolerate” ourselves out of the rights we asserted in the formation of our country. We are nearly at the point where we will “tolerate” the world out of the greatest, most productive, most inventive and most compassionate country in human history. Abraham Lincoln is supposed to have said that in the course of history, “we will be remembered in spite of ourselves.” If we are not careful I think we will be remembered as the generation that fully embraced the most avoidable tragedy in human history.
