THEY RESISTED ARREST!

While banishing signs of “I can’t breathe,” “black lives matter,” and positioning two hands in the air representing Micheal Brown’s “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative, our fellow Americans traverse the streets of major cities. Utilizing half-truths and untruths while rejecting the viability of any and all counter arguments to the Brown and Gardner incidents, “protestors” discordantly invade public space while purposely destroying property and plundering the goods of private businesses.

Their novelistic contextual of police brutality is spun as if synonymous with the facts. A mob of unruly protesters spurred onto the streets by agitators, such as Al Sharpton, their actions blessed as rightful by the president of the United States, his attorney-general, as well as the mayor of New York City. These self-righteous demonstrators accuse the police and their departments of crimes, portraying the police as run-amok scofflaws inclined to racists’ sediments.

In fact, the contrary is the truth — but contrarians are by nature unconcerned with truthfulness. What matters to the mob is not the bona fide of the cause but the effect of their agitations. Even if the effect was fueled by an outrageous lie, as long as the effect is effectual, the truth of the matter is inconsequential. Guised as people of moral righteousness, these agitators behave amorally.

This accusation of police indiscriminately killing black men because they are black is ridiculous. And yes, black men commit more crimes proportionally to population than white men. Fear is and will always be a component of enforcing the laws of the land. For the last fifty-thousand years homo sapiens have had a culture of prejudice and biased-bigoted intolerance. This behavior is displayed inwardly to their very own kith and kin and certainly outwardly to any and all that are deemed different. This behavior is found in every race on earth. The result of such bigoted intolerance costs the lives of millions upon millions of humans. From the time of the migration north out of Africa to Europe where homo sapiens purported to have aided in the annihilation of the Neanderthals, humans have murdered their fellow humans.

But no one could possibly suggest that (white) American police violently and willfully hunt down black Americans to kill them. As a nation of multiple ethnic communities strung across the land, with all the issues, concerns, and problems inherent in cross-racial communities living together, the overwhelming majority stops on red and goes on green without supervision. We do have problems, but if Brown and Gardner had not resisted arrest they would be alive today.





AMERICA’S REALITY

The world is made up of living things whilst inorganic objects support the living. All living things feed off each other. This symbiosis is the indispensable conduit amongst the living. Humankind is no exception. Humans are constantly contesting with all other living things for survival. Distinctively for humans the goal is not in the attainment but in the striving to attain. Therefore, humans are an insatiable species incapable of satisfaction.

In the quest of striving to attain, evidenced by thousands upon thousands of years of behavior, humans will murder other humans. This murdering of other humans is what humans do.

Withstanding that murder (sometimes called war) is a factual continuum of human behavior, leadership when concocting policy marginalizes or neglects this fact all together. This ignorance of fact is curiously perplexing, I question: Knowing the nature of humankind how could the leaders of our nation seriously pronounce (effectively) peace and harmony amongst men as a foreign policy objective? How is it that this nation’s Department of Defense and Joint Chiefs, whiles standing should-to-shoulder with President Obama, affirmatively suggest a significant downsizing of our armed forces? For ten thousand years or so of recorded history the dominate benchmarks are battles and wars. In-the-face of such palatable evidence proving the world perilously unsafe any rational person would concede that peace, and harmony is more a delusion then even an ideal much less a likelihood.

Despite the fact that Americans are a practical people derived from a culture of cognitive reliance and logical deduction. The significant majority of Democratic leadership still, unrelentingly, insists on believing in a world as we wish it to be rather than a world as it truly is. The perfect example of such is Senator Feinstein’s recent CIA discloser and Senator Mark Udall’s scurrilous chastising of CIA Director Brennan. The nation is at war, and these senators act as if Iraq and Afghanistan are trade disputes.

America is competing for resources, as well as, trading partners. Military strength of arms is the utility and facilitator of such force of arms. Plain and simply our reality is that only the United States and its English speaking allies stand as the guarantor of and for peaceful international commerce.

Americans are sought out by Islamic fanatics for the exclusive purpose of murder. There’s no rhyme of reason to the malcontented radical Islamist and there is no compromise to satisfy their discontent. We must kill them…

Recently, Mrs. Hillary Clinton suggested empathizing and striving to understand the enemies’ perspective… hmm. This is coming from a woman who has never fed her index finger through a trigger guard, lined the tip of the front sight blade centering left to right in the rear sight aperture, while targeting, exhale, breathe, relax, aim, slack, and squeeze. Clinton is a scripted character in a political fable of her own making; wherein, she the protagonist who willfully adjusts her discourses to suit an agreeable sector of voters. She is a pure example of a politician contemplating the direction and velocity of the public’s inclination before announcing a belief, a declarative policy, or the fashioning of some discernable difference.

She and her cadre of liberal progressives are the reason today’s world is dangerous and growing increasingly more dangerous by the day.It is the Democratic Party’s kinetically energized, pensively inclined, progressive ideologues, practitioners of “wish-it-was-so” inducement who have mistakenly fabricated world affairs to suite their misguided design. These progressives led by the President and the Secretary of State actually believe that as a prerequisite of cognoscenti one must bind this nation’s military might and the threat of its use in order to negotiate in good faith with the likes of Russia.

The domain of humankind remains treacherously apathetic, the concepts of rational and reasonable when contested against a predetermined mindset of irrational and unreasonable (i.e. Mr. Putin) demands (eventually) submission by one side or the other. Force of arms or the threat thereof is the inevitable means to resolution; this truth cannot be denied.





DO WHAT I MEAN, CERTAINLY DO NOT TRUST ON WHAT I SAY

President Obama is a philosopher-politician. He is, as were the ancient philosophers, a practitioner of esoteric prose. His speechmaking and off-the-cuff discourses are cloaked within an enigma of often mystifying interpretation. One must appreciate that the president is deliberately concealing the meaning of his words to protect society from dangerous truths — truths so dangerous that if he introduced lucidity and clarity into his verbiage his policies would chance swift ignominious rejection.

Therefore, his techniques of contradiction, misdirection, embellishment, and the artful disunity of meaningfulness, are designed as a surface message so that the common undereducated can find peripheral contentment. Of course the deeper meaning of social justice, principles of economic egalitarianism, redistribution of wealth, increased taxation of the well-to-do, and the punitive regulatory ingress into corporate, as well as all spheres of American society, is intellectually inhaled by the cognitively superior.

The president is a historicist, a proponent of liberal-progressive relativism. He is a believer in a double doctrine; the one designed for external, public, and widely disseminated; the other internal, secret, whose scope and function is Machiavellian; wherein the result reigns above and beyond the means.

All governments operate under the constant temptation for self-dealing, corrupt practices, benign incompetence, and unprincipled propriety. But when such a government’s executive is committed to unilateral indulgence prompted by ideology first and constitutional limits second, America is the loser. Presidential discretion is an overwhelming responsibility that the president and his progressive cohorts have treated as if a special utility of political convenience. They have set aside the check and balance system of constitutional governing with the same indulgence displayed when changing the colors of curtains in one’s office.

Athens lost their democracy, Rome its Republic, and America its constitutional adherents to limited governing; President Obama is a political progressive, an economic socialist, and a man determined to change America from the inside out and outside in… into his own ideological being.
