Why Is Trump Waiting

2 Comments

until September to potentially threaten a government shutdown when he could have done so at the end of April?

The Continuing Resolution to fund the Government would have run out last week had Congress not passed a Joint Resolution to spend, spend, spend through September.

That a J.R. and a Bill are essentially interchangeable, the obvious question begging an answer is: Why did Trump not veto the damned thing? Almost nothing he has wished for was included in the Bill, so why not veto?

Perhaps Trump is right in that the procedural rules to invoke cloture on a filibuster need to be changed. But I think it is more than just a rule change, or electing more Republicans. I think there is more to it than simply draining a swamp. I think the problem goes further than lawyers and lobbyists writing legisation.

I think the entire system is in cardiac arrest. And I don’t think the general American population would understand the freedoms and necessary sacrifices of the early Federalist period.

Where’s the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for that?

A Quick Thought Of An Update

1 Comment

It’s been a very intriguing year. There have been numerous times I began forming a post and then time got away from me. How exactly does one reply to all the year’s political happenings without sounding cliche or redundant?

Well, I found an excellent comment I simply couldn’t pass up.

From E Pluribus Chaos in reponse to this article:

If you like your constitutional rights, you can keep your constitutional rights. Period.

Oh, and John Boehner is now feeling safe enough after the GOP’s Goverment Letdown last month to call for a delay of Obamacare. Too bad he didn’t have the guts to keep the Shutdown-In-Name-Only going until the GOP got a delay or full repeal of the health care law. Then again, should we really expect someone who voted for the 2008 Bailout to have even the smallest cojones?

How About Some Humor?

I thought a good way to get the blog going again would be to begin with the video below.

Ron Paul’s The Revolution: A Manifesto

4 Comments

[Over the next week or two I am hoping to give some opinion towards Ron Paul’s latest book.]

Preface

Dissenters who tell their fellow citizens what is really going on are subject to fear campaigns that, like clockwork, are aimed at the political heretic. Truth is reason in the empire of lies. (x)

The adage that there is a wall of separation between the Church and the State, based upon no evidence other than Jefferson’s non-presidential letter to a Quaker sect, is one of the founding lies of a liberal, Marxist regime, sadly coming from within the political sphere of the U.S, putting domination and centralization of power in the hands of a few Aristocratical elite. Suffice to say such separation is not to be found in the text of the Constitution, but is propagated as existing so as to rather build a wall between modernity and its birthright and inheritance, that is Freedom.

Paul’s aptly named political heretic and empire of lies are nothing more than a repetition of history, having devolved over the centuries from a world of corrupt religion into modernity’s corrupt world without religion; in other words, post-modern secularism and anti-intellectual evangelicalism.

The Newtonian world challenged the authority of the historical Papal regime, specifically in the area of scientific truth, seeking exploration without the hindrance of false Church dogma. Newton, and sadly, other initial Church-deemed heretics, including doctrinal heretics such as Luther and Calvin, did not live to see the truth of Christ fully realized in the context of societal evolution during their lifetime, that you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. (John 8:32)

Fast-forward a few hundred years. The American government (through its indoctrinating establishments of the Marxist media, public education system, etc) has taken the seat as its own secular Papal regime hellbent on propagating falsities to spread its arm of control over the populace. And while today’s political heretic may or may not be God-fearing, no differently under America’s Godless regime do they suffer.

One of the lost methodoligies of the modern American political system is reason, which, as Paul defines, is Truth. We have already lost our Judean-Christian social morality over the past two hundred+ years as a nation which can be argued occurred through societal evolution, the trumping of secularist, atheistic science over the Biblical narrative, etc. And with the expulsion of that morality, our Greek inheritance of reason also made its exit. Without a neo-Rennaissance to rediscover the enlightenment of what reason and truth are for and to all forms of debate, including that of political debate, this age is then to be defined as a reversion to a new Dark Age. I hope there are more Ron Pauls out there who are ready and soon to speak out against the fascist darkening of not only the human mind but the American experience as well, for the pen is mightier than the sword.

Briefly on The Slave Trade

Leave a comment

Italics added for emphasis:

Before American slavery is examined, it is important to see hemispheric slavery as a whole. The growth of slavery in the English mainland colonies was only a small part of an immense world historic process in which over a span of three centuries African kings and chieftans, Portugese, Spanish, Genoese, English, French, Dutch, and Danish slave traders, Yankee merchants from the Northern colonies, Portugese, Spanish, English, Dutch, and French planters in Latin America and the Caribbean islands, and the planters of the North American continent were all knit together in a far-flung fraternity of the unfraternal…The plantations of the Western Hemisphere and the slave trade were the foundation of the colonial industry and the commerce of the European nations in the eighteenth century, and the slave trade itself was a central factor in their domestic economies and their political life, a major piece on the international chessboard of diplomacy and war. [67, America at 1750: A Social Portrait, Richard Hofstadter]

While this post would greatly benefit especially from James Madison’s thoughts on faction and the role it plays in a Republic/Democracy, by implication the reader should arrive at decent enough of an understanding to render the inclusion moot. [And self-study is more beneficial anyway.]

Simply, the historical record finely displays the world economic and political system, including African Kingdoms, revolved around the African slave trade. Certainly whites committed their own egregious actions towards the African, rooting it in Biblical language for justification, moreso between the late 18th century, continuing to the outbreak of the Civil War [And, quite acutely, still exists presently]. However, every person is guilty. Not just the European or the American colonial. This late-Middle Ages act of the slave trade exemplifies the depravity of the human soul.

Thomas Jefferson has this at least partly in mind upon drafting the Dec. of Independence, wherein he originally wrote:

He [King George] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it’s most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in the transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobium of INFIDEL powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of ditinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he also obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed against the LIBERTIES of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the LIVES of another.

Can they do that? Is this legal?

Two questions from a commentor on the 30-day tax refund delay currently under operation in California.

Four words: Class Action Law Suit.

One cannot sue the government, per se, as that would be the equivalent of every resident going into their neighbors’ homes and taking money from them. Since California’s government doesn’t seem to understand how to balance a budget, it’s time to shut everything down, and I mean everything, save for that which is absolutely necessary such as police forces. Cancel all state employee paychecks, terminating the Terminator’s first [since when did we allow an aristocracy into our Republic and since when was it okay for public servants to make a profit?] Cancel all contracts. Cancel all projects. Use that money for the tax refunds.

How is it “education, debt service, and other payments” [italics added] are first in line “legally” to get money? What are the “other payments”? Why is there no mention of the cost of illegal immigration to the legal Californian tax base? After deportation of any and all illegal residents, California should sue Mexico.

If there were ever a case for a legal bailout…for the people…this is it.

Freedom of Speech

The effort to silence speech isn’t limited only to the Democrat party.

I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party.” – Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga

Do what’s best for your party? So we really live in an Aristocracy? An Oligarchy? I suppose the technical term doesn’t really matter. Because Gingrey doesn’t understand exactly why he’s in Washington, DC. Perhaps he should re-read the Preamble. Or be required to participate in a *legal* immigration citizenship class.

In any case, the Democrat party is continuing its onslaught against Rush Limbaugh in an effort to silence him. As one commentor wrote:

Even the DCCC isn’t this stupid, is it? I think this is a trial balloon to see how far the Dem’s and Independents are willing to go with the “Fairness Doctrine”. The current proposal is to break national shows so that “local” programming can be introduced for diversity. In effect it will put Rush, Hannity, Levin and others out of business without bringing back the “Fairness Doctrine” in name.

The onslaught continues via the *People’s Petition* where any ordinary Joe Shmoe can send their vitriol to Mr. Limbaugh.

I wonder if my Petition comment will make it past the censors:

God bless Mr. Limbaugh for continuing to show he has true, American brass balls by standing up to Socialist-Fascists, ie the Democrat Party and their President.
