The non-elected & appointed

Acting on the perception of one’s self-interest is a steadfast natural human characteristic and the stimulus for a multitude of societal confrontations. Therefore, the reasonable and rational among the people created a republic wherein laws enacted by elected representatives counteract conflict with the intent to defuse probable disorder for harmonious stability.

However, the preceding is as much theoretical as it is in practice non-applicable. Laws require obedience, but instead, exceptions to compliance abound. Willful noncompliance penetrates deeply within the enforcement jurisdictions, including officers of the court, the police, and governing administrations. Another issue of concern  that is pervasive throughout:xcessive prosecutorial discretion.

The reasoning of the founders to write and ratify the U.S. Constitution was to enhance a citizen’s liberty, protect personal freedoms, while framed within a statute of laws that require adherence. Nonetheless, the Constitution subject to the whims of variant interpretations, inventive incarnations, and flagrant transgressions, almost from the very beginning of the republic, has been used by the majority, the minority, and special interest often utilizing Machiavellian means to achieve a result.

In unison, as if an organic symbiosis, by methods implied, explicit, casually asserted, or development by other purposes, the size of the U.S. Government has grown immeasurably immense.

In reality, within the vast U.S. Government is the hidden (in plain sight) régime of the non-elected and appointed. This bureaucratic force administers the process, manages critical personnel, and is in control of the governing procedure. They, them, and those innocuous ones, for the most part, have regardless of the political-ideological inclination of the elected have a secure lifetime position. In direct proportion to the size of the government is the power of the non-elected and appointed. Legislators pass laws the bureaucratic forces interrupt its meaning and then decide what part and with what emphasis to enforce the enacted statutes.

The Democrats committed to impeaching President Trump will settle for any or all violations of something that will stick, anything will suffice, but alas, all they could muster is speculative conjecture founded on hearsay and the sentiment of wish it were so.

As witnessed in the “impeachment inquiry,” according to the accusers, the significant combative issue by President Trump was his policies. The State Department employees that work for the president did not/do not agree with the president’s foreign policy in Ukraine.

Knowing the 2020 election motivations of the Democrats and the disagrees over policy among the non-elected and appointed it appears that impeachment is a little harsh, but of course, when starring at another four years of a Trump presidency, a wishful throw into an empty end zone to satisfy the lefties and socialist is dutiful.

War and Peace

Never-Ending Wars

From the beginning, humanoids, possibly because of instinctual prompts, for a reason or no reason, have normalized killing fellow humans as a tactically sound method of achieving a satisfying result. Combative behavior is a day to day ordinary. Homo sapiens, the most dangerous of animals, have perfected and systemized the tools of butchery. No other animal on earth, explicitly, with evil intent designs the methods and dedicates the resources to kill members of its kith and kin either for material gain, envy, xenophobic misnomers, misplaced predispositions, or for reasons illogical even self-defeating.

Warring is a trait of humanness. For Ten Thousand years, humans have been killing humans. Warriors are glorified, eulogized, immortalized, and rewarded; the dead combatants respected and revered. Therefore, war is in a forever state of being.

Peace, defined as the opposite of war, is no more than an ideal. A wholesome supposition permanently affixed as a childish hopeful; therefore, to engender peace as a policy goal is dangerous, unrealistic, as well as nonsensical.

Accepting war as a constant trait of humankind is a requirement of utilitarian functionalism. The object of war-making is to tactically advance diplomacy by other means; the loss of blood and treasure, when measured in comparison to the purpose of combative engagement, is a secondary consideration.

America mourns the death of the nation’s warriors; nevertheless, “Sending our boys home,” is wishful, naive, and strategically suicidal. The worldwide distribution of U.S. Forces has, with notable exceptions, safeguarded the free world from destructive bad guys.

A Roman General Vegetius once summed up war as a conspicuous human challenge; nonetheless, suggested that: “if you want peace, prepare for war.”

Impeachment

Cognate believers of Machiavellian tactics Democrats of the intelligence committee march shoulder-to-shoulder, heel-to-toe; they dismissively parade; in lockstep to the drumbeat striving to eliminate the threat of Donald Trump’s participation in the next presidential election.

Deftly cloaked in the pretense of righteousness, they preen their investigation of the president’s (Ukrainian) conversation to service their political ends — charging that the president’s telephonic wordsmith is detrimental to the security of the United States, a violation of campaign finance laws, and just not presidential.

Leaders Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chairman Adam Schiff are racing to head off the expected results of D.O.J’s Bill Barr’s investigation into the 2016 election. Fearful that the forthcoming investigative report will evidence high crimes perpetrated under the direct orders of the Obama administration; knowing that such unlawful commands from the executive branch willfully besmirched the virtue and operational integrity of the institutions of FBI, CIA. It was the Democratic Party and affiliates led by Hillary Clinton that schemed, provoked, and financed these series of felonies.

Pelosi and Schiff feign a pretense of concern for the nation while they create multifarious divisiveness. Pelosi prays for Trump as she and her acolytes drive the stiletto into his back.

The fact of the matter is the supposed reason for discovery. However, the politically motivated interpretation of “the truth” has defied the normality of rational thought. Affixed to all explanations, questions, and answers is the prefix hyper or the postscript liar. The very concept of self-governance is questionable.

The dominant media is now the staffed fourth branch of the government; its sway and influence demand imposing attention.

The idea that fellow Americans would within the calendar of a national election decide to impeach a duly elected president is proof of George Washington’s concern that political parties jeopardize a functioning republic.

The Truth Of The Matter

Journalism is not truth-telling; it is an art form subject to the whims of the writer, editor, and publisher. It is a narcissistic endeavor that demand’s applause — consequently, the employment of almost truthful and just about factual are acceptable aims. In the newsprint business, salacious reporting often begets readership, which prompt advertising dollars that initiates more of the same. If on the other hand, reporting is actual, real, and free of hyperbole, but boring the eyeball count (readership) could decrease, affecting gross revenue.

The published characterization of “news” versus opinion has decidedly merged within the New York Times and competitor newspapers. The moral obligation of leftist progressives (in the interest of limiting Trump to one term) is to propagate and persuade the reader or the viewer to the acceptance of their biased political view. For these pretenders of editorial virtue, facts are subject to interpretative predisposition while truths subordinate to the whim of a capricious perspective.

The politically inspired righteousness of the writers, reporters, and jabber mouth critics believe that it is a reporter’s amoral obligatory, to pummel the president with scurrilous accusations while in disproportion lavish the Democrats with a panegyric gesture or two, even three.

Since the election of 2016 anti-Trump hysteria is the Democratic Party’s meaningfulness: Purposeful distortion of the truth, misleading innuendos, blatant conflicts of interest, inventive third-party derived rumors, interrogatories of libelous intent, baseless accusations, and forked-tongue deception. These descriptive(s) are the politically inspired lifeblood of today’s Democrats; the party has no hesitation, concern, or second thoughts as to the collateral damage incurred. Nothing is of consequence except for the ridding of Donald Trump.

Yesterday the crisis de jour was Russia today its Ukraine tomorrow only the Democrats know; though it all the president preservers.

Tax, Spend, and Defraud

Governing in the United States denotes a particular instinctual given a historical symbiosis. There is a proportional within the act of taxation and the power of government — the more egregious the tax and ambiguous the respective laws, the more coercive the governing authority. There is a sensitive proportionate between a free market economy, regulatory rules, the cost of litigation, and the degree of one’s liberty.

The ability of government to lawfully tax an individual’s income (by any amount) at the whim or discretion of any Congressional administration jeopardizes the meaningfulness of liberty.  On the other side of the same issue of taxation is the politically exploitative, seedy, dishonest distribution of tax revenue. Government, all governments, including America’s, are susceptible to mendacious and deceitful behavior, in the interest of the Republic, one must never consider otherwise.

In the present, Congress operates within the complexities of a process-orientated bureaucracy. One that functions on the self-perpetuating inertia of the legislative branch; these bureaucracies demand a significant amount of operating independence, as well as, enforcement discretion. It is this bureaucratic progression that delegate delineates, defers, infers, enforce, negate, and often ignore prudence in favor of the typical modus operandi.

An overly regulated economy is wonk encumbered, differentiated by multi-source uber-bosses, excessive counter-affirmed requirements, and enough paperwork to harvest a forest. The result of such is the creation of an administrative system that is difficult if not improbable to remission or disband.

Human beings manage. As a consequence, trust is forbidden and askance the necessary safeguard of liberty. The most significant internal threat to the republic is statutorily compliant corruption perpetrated in the main by officers of the court, licensed intermediates, the elected, the appointed, and the Machiavellian(s).

One must keep one’s eye on the bouncing factoids.

The Differing

The proposals disseminated by the Democratic Party’s Left-Wing is perplexing at best and wholly nonsensical at worse. To comprehend the meaningfulness of the Democrat’s presidential hopefuls their why’s and how’s, plus striving to align the proposed nuts, bolts, pieces, and parts with any sense of clarity is a cognitive struggle. Which, of course, could very well be the reason I’m NOT A Left Winger.

Deciphering their proposed policies without the equivalency of a Rosetta Stone is for the conservative mindset a daunting endeavor. The transition from thesis to implementation without considering the challenge of Congressional approval could render Gordian’s Knot a simple untying exercise. Utilizing the blessed properties of good sense, prudence, logical deduction, and the powers of observation I do wonder how the politically inclined “Left” can justifiably arrive at their determinations? Possibly, those that reason other than as a conservative has an instinctual that automates wishing it to be so over the substantive.

Or, as with a leaf severed from a stem, the distance from plucked to landing rests with more than the velocity and set of the wind, but is also, at the discretion of indeterminable probabilities, somewhere during the journey of life’s beginning to end, one develops, by necessity, influence, or the mystical properties of circumstance and serendipity a particular socioeconomic inclination that harmonizes into a political belief.

There are scattered mostly set-aside differences between the liberal progressive and conservative basis of thoughtful understandings. However, in the main, the ideological contretemps initiates with the divergent interpretation of this republic’s constitution. The conservative highlights less government authority while the progressive encourages more. The progressive has an expansive idea of America’s obligation to serve the populous of the world; wherein, the conservative’s interest narrows to protecting America and its people as a first cause obligatory.

From observation, (bent by my bias), I have concluded that believers of the political left once persuaded, mostly but not always, discount evidence to the contrary as counter-intuitive. Facts, for progressives, are a secondary consideration to “the enlightenment of their truth.” For the progressives, the quest to establish, a Scandinavian or European model of governing in America is an objective that requires perseverance of beguiling deception, as well as, the tactics of Niccolo Machiavelli’s, ”the end justifies the means.”

Respective of my conservative beliefs, I appreciate differing opinions, belief systems, and the variant interpretations of persuasive understandings. As a traditional thinker, as long as, the counter-argument is empirical, I remain open-handed to the acceptance of the contrary of my thinking. The viability of my conservative philosophy depends on the persistence of Progressive Leftist and their socialist brethren to propagate their message. Contrast is integral to the development of one’s decision.

The Shenanigans of the Democratic Left

Historical evidence verifies that political campaigns as nasty, viciously malicious, scurrilously snappish as today’s has precedence. However, never has there been 24/7 at-will access to just about anyone (so inclined) to propagate instantaneously any and every item of opinion, rumor, or falsities. As a consequence, those on the political left have effectually ( with the aid and assistance of a compliant media) disseminated under the pretense of righteousness, what are duplicity, insulting insincerity, and defamatory lies.

Before the Democratic party’s debate, it was my understanding that the purpose of persuasion was to form a consensus. I was wrong.

The purpose of this field of Democratic hopefuls is to offer a contrarian perspective solely for the sake of creating and sustaining a chaotic rebellion. Their theme: “I’m against Trump.”

The imperators of ancient Rome distracted their constituents with games, bread, and beer. Democratic office-seekers vying to win the primary vote are promising whatever.

Inclusive with their catch-all promising prompted by the anxious throes of winning at all cost Democrats have disregarded the principle of due process; flouted rational deduction, and overlooked the sensibility of reasonableness. They have suggested and implied (without evidence) that the President of The United States is a racist, a traitor, and a “white nationalist.”

Advised on television by a left-winger regarding the treatment of the conservative constituency and their leaders that supports President Trump “pitchforks and torches.” These words, actions, and forecasting have the ring of the French Revolution. Tax the hell out of the wealthy is the declaration of one of the Democratic candidates. The Hollywood contingent, not to be outdone by the outrageous, have suggested: I have thought about burning down the White House. Another famous actor threatened, “I’d like to punch him in the face.”

President Trump’s administration has made the unforgivable mistake of success. The economy is purring along, as the president might say it, “beautifully.” Unemployment is the lowest of all recorded time. This sense and fact of success, for the left, is unacceptable. One popular television host, wanting to oust the president from office, wished for a recession.

The madness of the Democrats demonstrates their view of the world’s issues and concerns as well as their intentional resolution of same. I thank them for their frankness.
