Truth Be Known

Did you ever notice how most of what you say on a given day does not belong in the public on social media? And that hardly anything really does?

Why is complaining about “election interference” the great excuse for the biggest election interference campaign in history?

Well Son of a bitch, they all got rich.

Extortion of Process

Let me explain just one part of how the Democrats plan to use the impeachment process to serve their political ends. You know the masters of scamming the process.

It goes like this, as described by one Democrat Senator to CNN: first the Democrats put on their case. Then president’s team puts on the president’s defense.

But unlike in a regular trial, there is no opportunity for the House Managers’ rebuttal to Trump’s defense. What to do? Then the questions period closes out the process.

So — this is the great part — according to the Senator, Democrat Senators will use their super nifty questions period that follows to do that partisan rebuttal work against Trump. What part of this process is not politicized, hedged and schemed by Democrats?

And you know what that will look like. All the activist Democrats, House Managers and Senators, will operate at peak collective strength, using their corrupted and highly partisan process for maximum political benefit. All hands on the coup deck.

Yet all the while they chant the words “Trump is cheating in the next election.” You cannot even trust the results of the 2020 election with Trump in it. Wow, now they’re already undermining the next election 9 months ahead of it. Only to save quid-pro-quo Joe.

Our elections are very frail if just the inclusion of Donald Trump can destroy them.

After all they don’t care about the amount of damage they do to the country. not at all. The only thing that matters is their political objectives. Come hell or high water….and it will.

Exclusive Impeachment Sham Show

According to Jerold Nadler, Democrats want us to think their hyper-partisan, faux impeachment is the guardrail of our democracy, wisely designed and installed by the founders. Those wise founders hadn’t met Nadler and Schiff.

But that is just not how any of this works. They are not only wrong on solutions, they are wrong on the problems too. They make a complete mockery of our entire process.

We could go on about their flaws in both interpretation of the Constitution and the (mis)application of what they are doing, as examples of their own abuse of power.

But maybe a little levity is in order to lighten the mood.

ELP had this drama laid out in a song back in the 70’s called Karn Evil 9, where it satirized the sideshow phenomena. Worth a listen. Carl Palmer doing what he does.

“Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.”….”Soon the Gypsy queen in a glaze of Vaseline will perform on a guillotine, what a scene what a scene.”

“We’d like it to be known, the exhibits that we’ve shown, are exclusively our own, all our own. …. See the Show!”

What a show, but not for the faint of heart.

A banter of thought and a poem left unfinished.

Once in a blue moon
I shutter to think
How this whole world
Got laid to ruin.

From bronze to iron
Often never thought
No one pays tribute
But no one can deny

Antipathy then and again
Is just a passing fuss
Come one come all
We’re on the rise.

Someone may see art in that. Some might see stupid. Is it really the eye of the beholder?

The America Gets It Dems Don’t – Debate

While the whole world is not watching, Democrats continue to debate themselves over the finer points of buying votes. In this greater theme, it was more like a steel cage match of Socialism vs. Communism. So far it usually seems to end in a draw.

Some people may say “you seen one Democrat debate you seen them all.” I sort of disagree because they are always trying to up their ante with the public. These candidates are the vacuum cleaner salesmen of the 50’s, trying anything they can to get your attention, to sell you a product you probably don’t want and can’t afford.

All framed under the rubric of everyone needs it. Just pick your preferred delivery means to get it. Sorry, no other options are available now. But a full compliment of accessories for their machine is being planned and built. And can Democrat candidates accessorize?

I have a new name for Democrats: the “we’re all socialists now” party. We can dispense with all that nonsense from over the years that they are not socialists and do not endorse socialism. At least now they are transparent about what they are.

It’s only a question of Marxist socialism or unabashed communism. They know it is considered forbidden fruit but it is so appealing to them. The gentle nudge tactic has given way to what amount of force is necessary to bring it all about? They are open on that question though have decided that the quicker the better. Like global warming, the time for debate is over — that is if there ever was one.

Of course, within this series of debates, it always comes back to how to pay for all these votes — I mean things. To that end, there is one dominant answer lurking: we just need to take a little more. Then they rattle off a list of top targets they plan on taking it from, for starters. But eventually it will come from everyone else, too. Only they need you to think there is some magical mine from which they will harvest all this necessary money.

By the way, it’s time government takes over the manufacturing of drugs as well.

So these salespeople of socialism will be back knocking on your door, again and again, with a can of dirt in one hand and a collection cup in the other, telling you “we just need to take a little bit more and then we’ll be good. Promise!” But you’ll love all the attachments.

Wicked this way comes

If Nancy Peloci uses Unconstitutional means to try to remove a president from office, then that is the same as the coup they have run for 3 years. It is not legal or legitimate.

That brings us right to treason, no matter how glamorous one tries to dress it up.

So just the fact that she tried to step in to further contaminate it by attempting to gain control over the Senate proces, is only more icing on the Unconstitutional cake.

And frankly, Madame Speaker, I’m sick of it! She obviously cares nothing about the Constitution and even less for the people of this country and our election process.

Coming To Terms

I am trying to come to terms with some terms.

Actionable intelligence — what does that mean to Dems? We may never know.

Imagine not killing a terrorist because you may get attacked with terrorism.

That’s all, just trying to come to grips with those concepts.

I’m serious.

BTW: and would someone ask NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio what that pizza would cost if Democrat Socialists came to power? I bet 30 bucks would look like a steal.

Intelligence Flip Flops

Trump was blamed for 3 years for not listening to intelligence. Now he responds to a real threat based on actionable intelligence and the Left goes berserk. In fact CNN’s byline now is question our intelligence first. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a Reaper Drone strike.

Indeed, all Democrats say they want to see the evidence and intelligence the president used in making the decision. They also dismissed killing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

It turns out that there are suddenly a lot of arguments that can be made for not following our intelligence. Shall we say for NOT acting in real time to take out a major terrorist actor in the midst of rolling out attacks against the US.

Who thought that was possible?

It turns out there is so much to question about intelligence, much less what to do with it. I only wish everyone had the same interest in protecting US interests and in our national security. Wouldn’t that be nice? But they don’t; and let’s not deceive ourselves.

Our basic argument against Obama on Benghazi is that he didn’t do anything. In fact he did the opposite. He stood down any response to the attack. He should have had to explain it but he never did. Actually the whole thing was a cover up and lies by Susan Rice.

Incidentally, in the aftermath of the Qassem Soleimani strike, who was the top analyst CNN brought on to talk about it? Susan Rice. In a rational world of media coverage that would be irrational. And it would have no credibility.

Whom did CNN bring on next to talk about retaliation threats from Iran against the US? That would be FBI’s discredited former General Counsel, James Baker and Dep Director Andrew McCabe. Later, James Clapper rounded out their coverage of the experts.

Democrats are blinded by politics and their hatred for Trump. Those same people who never answered for the failures in Benghazi. Never mind that attacking our embassy is an act of war. They can ignore that.

How long till the left throws intelligence under the bus? But what a shame that Benghazi didn’t even merit a whisper campaign. That denial went on for years — same people.

Personal Value VS. What Culture Says

I might try to explain a little about me and hopefully make some principled point along the way. Even if it seems consistently dull, there is a good reason for it.

Some people may wonder why I occasionally put up music on a pretty partisan political blog? The answer is a little complicated. But I confess both are personal interests.

No, besides interests, I also like to use music sometimes to make a political point. I confess to doing this. I know it doesn’t always go with the point very well. I prefer to think of it as punctuation like a period or exclamation point at the end of a good sentence.

This doesn’t mean the music goes exactly with the text. It is an aid. But it can accentuate the text. Some people would like to marry politics and music. That repulses me. However, there are times music can make a political point, if there is some deeper meaning to it. So I normally frown on conjoining the two.

The other issue is music and politics are both a part of our culture. I am not a creature of popular culture and do try, except for basic traditions, to avoid being sucked into the cesspool of popular culture. Some people prefer to swim in it or dive into it as a rule.

But I admit to succumbing to music, lots of kinds, even if it is seen as popular culture. That’s because I see it as an art-form or expression – not for cultural exploitation.

For example, you could be surprised how anti-culture I am. I still do not have a cell or mobile phone, which causes me problems anymore. I still use a PC computer instead of a laptop or a mobile device. In fact, normally I am among the last to join any trend, say on doing certain things. All of those may cause more problems than it avoids today.

I don’t particularly wear my politics on my sleeves or talk about them much in public. There are exceptions. I stay out of popular culture battles except where the social, political and principled points are on the line. I admit that can be frequent. So I am a bit of a counter-cultural warrior.

I believe in living out one’s faith as best he or she can against a tide of social and cultural woes or norms that make it unpleasant. And I will not let inconvenience or blowback for it deter my path. Actually that is society’s way of influencing one’s beliefs using popular criticism, culture, or political correctness.

With all those things, you can assume in many areas that is swimming against the tide today. But it should be a healthy swim rather than a reluctant, tiring one — else they are winning. ‘They’ meaning the left and their popular conceptions of current culture. I accept that, if objectively weighed, they do appear to be winning the battle in the short run, just as fake news seems to daily .

It is the closer look at things I am more concerned with. I hate the idea that knee-jerk reactions determine narratives or even events. I believe people should be, and generally are, smarter than that. And doing so is to fall into a trap.

I think and expect the right – whether it is a political side or moral principle – will eventually win. I think it is our job to pursue that right. So I believe a valiant effort is necessary in trying to achieve it. I think that effort also has a value.

I believe that the Declaration of Independence says eventually our battle is necessary to correct the current politics and an out of control system itself. Immediate correction cannot be practically expected. It did not happen overnight. It will take energy and effort to correct it, even if that is only a goal. It is still a noble one.

So I may be guilty of delving into the culture of music. But it is not cultural to me. There are still lessons to be learned by exploring it without falling prey to popular culture. I have seen one concert in my life. I am not a Grateful Dead, or any, groupie.

I am also not a movie buff. I haven’t seen many classics. I never had time to watch them. I appreciate comedies though also see those more as an art-form and not of popular culture.

Now those could all make me a boring person by some standards. Maybe it seems boring but makes a statement. I like to try to read intent or purpose into something as much as possible. Practicality can be a virtue.

Enough right there to put me at odds with most popular ideas today. Yet it is my retreat and sanctuary. I believe it has far greater value, at least to me, than following popular trends. But I do write about those trends to critique them. I find them funny and of little lasting value. Some are curious.

I believe one has to find and seize a (greater) value from not conforming to trends. Politics also appears littered with popular trends today. For instance, socialism uses popular trends like a tool to manipulate the mob. That makes it dangerous.

All this is why I detest mob mentality and rule so much. Our founders understood the threat in that. Does this often make me a loser, or at least seem like one? Yes. I would rather be considered a loser by others if a winner is being part of a socialist mob club.

And for these personal reasons, I believe that is what makes conservatives such a target because they have strong independent beliefs. But there is a great untapped power in the consensus of conservatives. We should all work harder to that end by joining our efforts.

Thanks: What’s Yours?

As 2019 winds down, some thanks are in order. Just a few prominent mentions.

On the last day before New Year’s Eve, I’d like to thank the cops for all they do — in some of the toughest parts of the country — along with fireman, EMTs and first responders.

I also want to thank those in the military for serving with honor, and their families who sacrifice to make it all possible.

I’d like to call out the lamestream media and fake news. You know who you are and what you do. You are the disgusting stain and obstruction to what makes a free society function. There are no excuses for what you do, but a sincere apology once in a while wouldn’t hurt.

I know I am leaving out many others and volunteers who donate their time. I can’t leave out my disgust for many on the left who have not accepted reality since the last presidential election. Time to move on. Here’s a message from 2016 that still stands.

To malcontents at odds with reality, a reminder is obviously necessary: Donald Trump is still President and he is not going anywhere. His support has not been cancelled either.

The Reasons We Have Been Given for the Assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy Have Not Been Factual: As Expected Those Responsible in the Federal Government Lied to us Again.

Jim Campbell's

By Jim Campbell

December 28th,2019

A week after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, his successor, Lyndon Johnson (1908-1973), established a commission to investigate Kennedy’s death.

A man with too much on his mind?

Warren (1891-1974), concluded that alleged gunman Lee Harvey Oswald (1939-1963) had acted alone in assassinating America’s 35th president and that there was no conspiracy, either domestic or international, involved.

What Does the Zapruder Film Really Tell Us?

It’s been called the most important 26 seconds of film in history: The 486 frames of 8-millimeter Bell + Howell home movie footage shot in the midday sun of Dallas on November 22, 1963, by a dressmaker named Abraham Zapruder.

Twenty-six seconds that included a historic, horrific, all-too-clear vision of a presidential assassination.

Most people vaguely know about the Zapruder film, but it will soon become omnipresent as the 50th anniversary…

Back In The Day

This post should not need an introduction but maybe for people that have not seen anything non-political here. But there is more, or less, dependending on your view.

Yes, I write lots of other stuff. However, normally only political or humor makes it onto the blog. Here’s an exception, unless philosophy and metaphors are even more than I thought.

Back In The Day

I had a strange thought while looking out my window one day. More of a vision actually. When I walked by the window, the corner of my eye thought I saw a silhouette. There really was none.

But when I turned to look, I imagined what I thought I saw there in that place. A small child maybe; meandering along with a simple stem of a weed in his/her hand under the sunshine, smiling.

A gentle breeze was blowing the hair. A curious happiness was in the air. Youth exuded in a soft glow tainting everything surrounding that image in the background.

Oh, what I thought must it have been like, many years ago, when a child may have been playing in that exact area under the afternoon sun? Sure, there were children in that spot from time to time, I’ve known it for years. In the late 60’s or thereabouts was a house close to that spot. A family lived there. Other children were nearby.

Life was different then. It was a different age too. There were things ahead they could not know. Yet optimism abounded. There were even things in the past about which they were aware. A promising future lay ahead – both for adults and kids. A different time, indeed. A pickup truck brought daily mail down the dirt road.

But their present was only a snapshot in time, for them. One to embrace with every breath, taking in its beauty. Nothing could interfere and nothing seemed to threaten it. That was a sovereign moment between the past and the future.

Though times do change, memories are etched by the present. They stay with us devoid of tense. But context, they say, is everything. So it was with this scene playing out in my mind.

I wondered a moment or so what it was like back then? Was it really as I imagined? It could have been just that way. It was the same way for many others in that era. Concerns were closely held to the local area. They cared about the space in time they were given. Nothing, it seemed, would interfere with the task at hand. They were not going to allow that.

But in reality, I thought, what I envisioned was still a combination of the present with the past. If only the two could be joined that easily, as a simple vision? Well, it doesn’t seem to work that way.

The past is the past and the future will be the present one day, and today will be its past. So enjoy this present for all it is, a point in time. It is not quite as fragile as one thinks, but it is more flexible than one may like. For it is the combination, the meeting place, between the past and future. And there is no other like it.

A Classic Christmas

Did you ever notice how anything you write can be like a coin toss? I mean chances are there is going to be at least one person to come along and disagree with everything you said, and/or claim you don’t know what you are talking about on the subject.

I recently discovered how recipes online can spark similar reactions. There is inevitably someone who didn’t like it, failed, or just inserted all their own ingredients to change the whole thing. But that was not the recipe.

So I found a prefect unhappy specimen on a recipe for a classic Christmas fudge. A pretty safe bet for a recipe, you would think. Nope.

Along comes a dissatisfied reviewer asking, “what kind of a recipe is this?” just for openers. Then she went on to describe the ingredients were all wrong and nothing blended together right. It was a horrible sloppy mess of garbage goo, she exclaimed.(paraphrased)

So I thought of the perfect response to accompany all the criticism:

Oh dear. Well, obviously, the real trick is to never even attempt this recipe unless you are in the Christmas Spirit because it absolutely will not work.

I hope that helps some. But if not, you might try bobbing for apples instead….without the apples. Have a great Holiday anyway!

I’m not crazy, just following the rules

I sort of wonder what is going on and what is next on the list today, since everything is now politicized anyway? It’s interesting to see what stuff Leftists come up with and how fast.

I think I’d like to play the game the way the Left does. Every time they do something I don’t like, we tell them the ocean just rose another 1/4 inch because of it. And yes, we did not yet switch to the metric system and we are still getting by. Thank goodness.

So every time they do something I don’t like, wham, tell them they just shortened their own life expectancy. They are costing the planet a few months. Can we keep that up?

Trump announced the government will no longer continue an agenda against light bulbs. You can buy the light bulbs you want. Well that should be a problem for Leftists. I wonder what fear they will hold over us for that? That just shaved 50 years off the life of earth.

What will Trump think up or do next? No wonder he is dangerous. He makes the Left think up all these crazy new threats based on what he does. So maybe they will tax thoughts next? Stop people from creating new ideas and thereby extend the life of the planet.

And to protest that new tax, I have an idea. They say solar flares are our next big problem. We should fight fire with fire. We build a machine that shoots flames at the flares to burn them up before they can harm anything. We’ll need fuel for it. How about we use those same self-sacrificing leftists for the fuel? That way we cure two problems at the same time. They do say they don’t want to live in a world with all this new innovation and its freedom going on. We’re ruining the planet. Anyway, I see more than enough fuel for the job.

Well, it’s either that or we just scare them to death with what we are going to do next. It doesn’t seem to take much. How else could I assist them in solving problems?

That reminds me, the twitterverse has been shrieking for a week over Trump’s comments about flushing WH toilets too much. Who knew conserving water was a problem to the left? Only when Trump tries it. Then he is like some crazy uncle saying “stop flushing the toilets all the time.” They’d rather see him as nuts than making sense… whatever that takes.

Perennial Bias At Work

Our government used the pretext of Russia to spy on a presidential campaign. And it parlayed that “investigation” into the presidency after Trump entered office.

  • The IG Horowitz report declares it found no documented or admitted political bias in the cause of the investigation.
  • It found 16- 17 problems with how the investigation was handled.
  • Horowitz testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that no one who touched this entire investigation should feel vindicated.
  • It found fraud committed in the FISA process.
  • The investigation used a dirty Russian-based dossier, paid for bu a political campaign, employing a foreign agent, as evidence in a FISA court for wiretapping + surveillance.

The question of political bias is almost moot now. Does it matter or is it relevant? An investigation has inherent bias, since the purpose is that someone probably did something wrong. But they qualify political bias as a possible concern.. I am concerned about both.

What matters is what they did, errors and all. The central reason political bias seems to matter is based on whether it should have started or not. And was it a basis for the investigation? Was it the purpose of it?

So did we really expect them to call the investigation unjustified? That would have been an automatic indictment on everything they did. It would be a glaring admission. It is doubtful even an Inspector General would be willing to do that.

Putting that bias question aside, the whole rest of the process which followed is an indictment on the cause of that investigation. Why break laws, use sinister conduct or act with malfeasance in investigating a justifiable cause?

And all that conduct happened to be against Trump.

So maybe too much emphasis is placed on whether there was provable political bias in the contamination of the decision to investigate? At least it was all around it. Shouldn’t there be a necessary attempt to eliminate bias? But that is not what we saw.

Back to what we citizen voters think. Much was made about our interpretation of inherent bias in the investigation. Though we had probable cause to suspect and confirm bias in the process. In fact, it almost screamed bias. That no one would have heard those screams would be irresponsible. How could we not see it?

All we heard since it began, and continued in its various forms, is that the FBI and its investigation is above reproach. But that is not what we saw. We saw a natural cause for bias alarm. Yet that we even questioned the FBI or basis of it was the problem.

The whole Russia meddling problem in the election had little to do with Trump. They did not seem as interested in investigating Russian meddling as they were in investigating Trump collaboration. Russia was the predicate to investigate Trump.

Now if we had fraud in the investigating itself, we certainly had it in spades in the media reporting all along. It amplified whatever government was doing, both publicly and behind closed doors. You could label the reason for it as political bias. But does it matter? The media were doing what they were doing. Do we have to prove what effect their political bias had in order to validate whether it existed? That would seem absurd.

Yet the entire cabal boils down to that one simple fact: our Government used Russia as a pretext to investigate Trump, in an election and after. Period. Nothing changes that.

But Cardinal Comey calls our fears, analysis, criticisms and conclusions “all made up.
