AMERICANS VERSUS AMERICANS

The vitriol of the Democratic Party for the Trump presidency is intensely lethal. “The Party” is tactically aligned with an action group known as the “resistance.” This progressive movement is in practice a confederation of political leftists, socialists, and “useful idiots.” The movement’s sociopolitical dogmatism is encouraged by a fresh assortment of habitual contrarians and the always dependable coterie of collective utopians. The Democratic Party utilizes this progressive movement, which is in fact a reactionary force, too, by any means actionable, to impair the operational workings of the Trump administration and ravage President Trump’s personal reputation.

For those of progressive inclinations, the cause of Clinton’s defeat is too palpable to accept. The salutary effect of a Trump victory for conservative governance is so consequential that the Democrats and their Progressive brethren cannot, or should I emphasize, will never accept the Trump presidency as legitimate.

Therefore, the Democrats, aided by Trump’s rhetorical excess, initially conceived then judiciously devised and artfully propagated (with the assist of a willing media) the false narrative that the Trump campaign colluded (a more meaningful descriptive: conspired) with Putin’s Russia to avail Trump’s election victory while vilifying Clinton’s political and personal image.

This particular indictment (of conspiracy) requires no evidence, only flirtations of and with the imaginable. If the Democrats initiated a federal lawsuit claiming that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to win the election, the unadulterated absence of evidence would result in a dismissal. Of course, the current Congressional shenanigans (investigations) are not a lawsuit — it is a false flag expedition seeking to impair the Trump administration.

The Democrats proclaim Russia’s intervention in America’s elections as a serious detriment to the country’s democracy. I say that proclamation is ridiculous. The serious threat to our democracy is the preponderance of behavioral fraudulence perpetrated by the elected and the appointed. Governing is no longer the principal task of Congress. In fact, the process of legislating, administrating, and overseeing the workings of governance conflicts with the realpolitik of winning the next election. The principal task of Congress persons is for their political party to achieve the predomination of legislative, executive, and judicial authority.

There is a civil war raging between two distinctive political, socio-economic, and fiscal policy ideologies. The conflict is over the interpretation of the nation’s constitution and the concept of limited governance versus a government of unilateral determinations.

The political parties are at war. There will be no abatement of hotly contested disagreement. In the present tolerance, patience, and compromise are a historical reference, not a viable alternative to disputation.





“HANG HIM HIGH!” THE DEMOCRATS CRY

Motivated by Trump’s presidential victory and their humiliating loss the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying the president, even at the cost of debilitating the virility of America’s prowess. The Democrats are exuberantly hyperventilating over their command of the media-driven message. The president is role-playing a script written by Senator Schumer, directed by Nancy Pelosi, and produced by the DNC. President Trump’s performance is beyond the wildest expectations; the president is directly responsible for the success of the production’s writer, director, and producer.

Democrats have authored a fiction of zero redeemable merits; nonetheless, with the active efforts of the president to muck things up, the president is complicit in the degrading of his office and the Republican brand. By means consciously knowing, impulsively reckless, or wholly unintended, the president — with the help of portentous “leakers” — has in short order enabled his misdirection. 

By “hook or crook,” in other words, by any means necessary, the progressives, while shaping the hangman’s knot, have dominated the story, respective of facts. Stupefied by their leader’s naïve, often childlike reactive with media discourse, allies and friends are confused.

Remembering: in all of the accusations of misconduct the president acted well within his constitutional rights, there is no evidence to the contrary. The Russians’ efforts to influence the election for Trump over Clinton have no substantiation, ergo Trump is the president of the United States. I think that “ergo Trump is president” is the Democrats’ issue of preponderant concern.

One need not worry about Russian influence in the election when one has the Democratic Party manufacturing factoids. Naturally, the complicity of mainstream and cable media’s adherence to progressive ideology in line with Democratic messaging is helpful. After all, propaganda requires distribution and messaging is all about repetition; pound out the half-truths, hell outright lie, just do it with zest and often. In time, the truth evolves into irrelevancy.

This entire gambit played out by the Democrats is solely about the next election. The swamp is propagating not abating and the Democrats are feeding the alligators in hopes of regaining power.

For reasons just beyond my grasp (not able to articulate the why of it all) I do believe that the president will beat back today, as well as tomorrow’s scurrilous onslaught and redeem his political sway. The Democrats have overplayed their hand. Eventually, despite the “resistance’s” need to never end the investigating, the investigative era will end. President Trump will never be exonerated from the allegations of Russian collusion simply because the Democrats despite all findings of innocence will hold on to the falsehood that the lack of proof does not necessitate innocence. The Democrats hate the man as such no “evidence discovered” will suffice as an indictment. 

Now if we can just get the president to stop making the Democrats’ day…





THE EVOLVING OF FACT

7 05 2017

The earth is no longer flat nor positioned as the center of the universe… it once was. And once upon a time, not so very long ago, a king professed a divine right to rule and to dispute the king’s right was a sin. Well, the concept of such powers debunked. The U.S. Constitution at one time, definitively, enforced covenants such as popular sovereignty, limited government, separation of powers, federalism, and a system of checks and balances. These covenants are no longer. When implemented the covenants are no longer translucent, evident, and palpable. Now days, every covenant is subject to a legal process of arbitrary means and methods. The ligne claire of what is fact is eroding into the subjective and relative.  

The evolving acceptance, by institution and individual, of what facts are factual encroaches, even threatens the susceptibility of deductive thought. However, the actual crisis of righteousness for the average American layman exists not merely because of the prevalent ambiguity of “the law.” But principally, whether one is guilty or innocent, the dependence of the outcome is premised on money. In reality, justice and fairness have little to nothing to do with the legal process.

It is amusingly sad (and I say amusingly only because crying facilitates the same result) that the original constitutional covenants are so distorted from original meaning and spirit they are unrecognizable.  These distortions are directly responsible for the abatement of American values such as self-reliance, individualism, and liberty.

I do credit the Trump administration’s efforts to redirect this nation’s priorities. Seemingly, the progressives — or should I say the “resistance” — are on a Machiavellian quest. Their objective is to deny Republican success, even if that success would correct the nation’s failing healthcare system.

The Democratic Party believes that they can pacify all who-voted-for-Trump into willfully, yielding to the liberal progressive ideological belief system of governance. Well, after the successes of FDR and Obama I can understand the probability of such reasoning; nonetheless, there has been a political awakening and this emergence of “change” is vibrant.

But of course, the world once was flat and Obama was, remarkably, elected twice…





THE POWER TO TAX

2 05 2017

It is implied that since the affirmation of this republic the three branches of America’s government are comprised of super-cognitive persons. Nonetheless, the miracle of the 1789 Constitution has been usurped by layers upon layers of wrong-headed judicial interpretation, ideologically driven distortion, and the nonsensical growth of a solo-driven unaccountable bureaucracy dedicated to processing. The law as written is no longer the assessment of its meaning; nowadays, the text of the law is subject to the prevailing thought, societal panache, or the cultural slant of a particular judicial review.

It is these “elected,” possessors of superior cognitive ability, graduates of renowned academies of smartness that rule. Indeed, congress is jam-packed with elected persons modeling many high-achievement validations for smartness.

Respective of being governed by the super-cognitive, laws put upon the governed over the last hundred years, is so burdensomely preponderant in ambiguity that  the common citizen is perplexed as well as wholly dependent on the anointed for a just interpretation. Additionally, covert lawlessness is no longer this nation’s most lethal threat to America’s sovereignty: The lethal threat is the statutorily compliant corruption of America’s original ideals. The perpetrators, the dastardly ones that threaten America’s traditional meaningfulness are the officers of the court and the elected. These persons reside in governments from the federal to the local level; their actions and non-actions have perverted the literal meanings of constitutional covenants and statutory laws to the point of opaque discernment.    

The basis of statutory compliant corruption is found in a manifold of distinctive variables. However, the origin that sophisticated the means as well as the pockets of those that governed plus incentivized the proliferation of statutorily compliant corruption was the ratification of the 16th amendment to the constitution. The use of taxation as the utility of legal larceny has been the mainstay cause of governmental enrichment. The enrichment of the governing régime has eliminated the practice of prudent oversight, encouraged deceit, and substituted tolerance for moral compliance. America’s out-of-control national debt and budget deficits are perfect examples of classic financial impairment. Nonetheless, both are ignored as containable by-products of a complex economy; in fact, both debt and deficit are sustained unabated by the elected whose sole interest is retention of status.

Today, the political parties and the media joust over the ideological fairness of taxable nitty-gritties; in my mind’s eye, the concept of taxing individuals is the reasoning of corruptive inducement. Therefore, the less people are taxed, the less inducement for corruption. Yes, government must be funded and taxation is the means; but when one cogitates over the irreconcilable abuse taxation has caused and is causing, the merit of taxation dilutes into a maxim: the less an individual is taxed, the better the socio-economic outcome.

The rational of funding government is sound; it is the implementation of such funding and the distribution system of tax dollars collected that initiates the wherewithal of corruption.

Every citizen should be taxed, otherwise the non-taxed have no measurable in their government. In fact, when one pays no tax whatsoever, is one effectively disenfranchised from citizenship? Those that have the legal definition of “more” should pay a static percentage more than average-taxed person. The sliding scale of taxation is un-American and distinctively unfair.

Taxation is the knife, fork, and spoon; the utility of government excess, indulgence, and corruption — it is the feeder of largeness and disconnect… less is definitively better.
