  • Advice for Trump: Don't fire Robert Mueller -- He will clear you in the end

    In their rush to convict President Trump of ANYTHING look at the malfeasance and illegal acts that they have uncovered.

    Look back at what we thought in 2016 and what can now be proven in a court. From mysterious “they” to named individuals in 18 months. Most importantly the team who dug up all this dirt was created by the liberal-progressive-socialists-communists themselves.

    Just think of all the one-liners that can disable any democratic candidate that have been created for this year’s mid-terms, the 2020 Presidential race, and possibly even the 2022 mid terms.

    Whenever your enemy has done and is doing serious damage to himself don’t help him!

    I think that people and groups of people like this need to read the preamble of the Declaration of Independence. And do so very carefully!

    I think the Declaration of Independence is the only political document that provides a logical and justifiable reason for over throwing a government, by violence if necessary. When you read the preamble and then the Second Amendment to the Constitution back-to-back the meaning of the Second Amendment becomes crystal clear; it is NOT about hunting!

    In November 2016 we overthrew an increasingly oppressive and out of touch government. This time it was called an election and it followed the intellectual foundations found in the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence. The next, and I am very scared that is rapidly coming, time the over throw of an imposed government by the deep state liberals who refuse to accept the results of the 2016 elections will not be peaceful.

    To understand this and its importance to the Republic you MUST read both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution together. They are contemporary documents written by the same men.

    The upper 1/3rd of all political bureaucracies, both state and federal, are NOT independent. Let’s end that lie right now.

    The senior levels are appointed by politicians and hence owe their personal allegiances to the political power blocks who hired them, first and foremost.

    The mid level bureaucrats owe their personal allegiances to the political power blocks within their respective bureaucracies.

    The events since the 1960s have identified those two truths and the events over the last 18 months have written those truths in big, almost bloody, red ink on every bureaucratic monument to political power.

    Proof of statement - how many politicians running for election have promised to clean up the existing bureaucratic messes? How many of those politicians have repromised to clean up the existing bureaucratic messes when standing for re-election? How much cleaning has actually be accomplished to date?

    “Independent” bureaucracies my Aunt Melba’s rosy red @#$*&^ !!

    When dealing with politicians, and senior bureaucrats are more politician than anything else, who become extremely wealthy, any thing more than 20 times their annual salary in 20 years. (In 2017 dollars that is roughly $ 4,000,000. To do so they have to “save” 100% of their annual salary.) I refer to an extremely qualified and experienced politician from the mid-20th Century.

    His political career started in 1922 when he was first elected a county official thanks to Democratic machine politics. From there he went to the US Senate for a decade. Then became Vice-President and won the Presidency, serving for more than 9 years total.

    That’s right Democrat Harry S. Truman who said; “The only for a politician to get rich in office is to steal.”

    In the half century since his Presidency I haven’t seen anything to contradict that political truth. Have you?

    Nip to American in Israel

    I just did an illegal and immoral act, according to the liberal/socialist/ democratic elites - I read the American Declaration of Independence.

    I quote for us all a section of that document’s preamble:

    “... Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness...

    Isn’t that what really happened in November 2016? Isn’t that the real potential of every Presidential election?

    IMHO we are now seeing nothing more than the deep state’s attempt to deny that portion of the Declaration of Independence.

    As the government of his Britannic Majesty, King George III, can tell them denying the average American citizen of that God given right can be extremely expensive both immediately and the following generations.

  • AP learns fired McCabe kept personal memos regarding Trump

    Just an other “person with direct knowledge of the situation who wasn’t authorized to discuss the memos publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity”. And what are we supposed to do with this collection of trash?

    BTW - think it through carefully. McCabe wrote these very personal and private memos as the basis of his “cover my ass” files against his boss - President trump. Now, who would he trust enough to share them with? Based on recent on-going events who will willingly serve as McCabe’s stalking horse and step into the lines of fire? IMHO it is better than even odds that the anomymous source not authorized to comment is Andrew McCabe himself. He just following his long time close friend and ex-boss James Comey’s lead.

    Oh so true about LBJ’s absolute control of Rolling Thunder’s operations from the safety of the White House half a world away.

    IMHO the author’s missed a much more important Vietnam era campaign - LINEBACKER II. In three weeks US air assets, including B-52s, accomplished what LBJ was unable do in 3 1/2 years! More importantly the North Vietnamese KNEW they had lost and were begging for the resumption of the Paris peace talks on American Terms.

    Too bad the authors of this article went for “cool names” in stead of successful operations with major military and political impacts. IMHO “cool” is a weather condition not the effects of a military operation!

    I ran into a “ghost gun” in the late 1960s. They were also called “clean guns”.

    Both terms meant they had no manufacture’s markings or serial numbers. They were specially ordered.

    IMHO a simple question.

    At what age does a person achieve the full rights of American CITIZENSHIP?

    Depending on the subject, rights of American CITIZENSHIP start as young as 7 or as old as 21. I base my age window based on the entire Constitution; 7 for sexual identification, the 19th Amendment (by extension of the right to vote) and 21 for the ability to purchase an AR-17, the 2nd Amendment.

    No matter what age is initially selected liberals and their supporting infrastructure will argue for a younger age. Life will get interesting as really young ages are discussed (we are already in some areas down to grade school ages ((gender self identification)).

    The real fun starts when you start encroaching on the abortion issue/ages.

    If you think the various unions and professional organizations are hyper ventilating now you haven’t seen anything yet!

    At the leading edge of test and developing we have employed the concept of rapid prototyping were we PRINT casting molds, and in some cases actual parts on 3D metal printers. Once you have “de-bugged” your initial effort you can produce any number of molds or parts almost over night. Making changes happen almost as fast.

    The very nature of machine shop work will change very rapidly in the near term future and all too many of today’s shops will disappear like the small shops in the early 1900s that supported the horse and buggy industry.

    The term SEL is nothing more than the educational establishment’s latest attempt to secure their jobs - much like the medieval guild system.

    I ran into and fought this attitude for 7 years as my children made their way through the local education system. One twin received a diploma, in spite of the system, his twin sister received a certificate of attendance.

    BY the 1990’s the first line of defense for the Educational Guilds was the average parent couldn’t understand what it meant to be a teacher. They, the educators and administrators chairing the various parent-teacher conferences gave up that line of BS with me. Something about me having my own Florida Teacher’s Certificate; older than theirs but the same form with the same information on it.

    Their second line of defense for the Educational Guilds was since they had a degree in education they could teach anything. My response was to bring any of my technical text books and ask a teacher (victim?) of my choice to start teaching me on that subject next week. I never encountered a teacher with a degree in education that wanted to teach me “Thermal Dynamics of a Breeder Reactor” for some silly reason.

    We never got to their third line of defense for the Educational Guilds - the guilds had frozen out all competition. My small, new, liberal arts college was lauded by a national weekly news magazine in 1966 as having one of the best teacher education program in the nation. You had to have your BA in the subject(s) you were going to teach - the educational courses were a minor area of emphasis. How can you truly teach a subject if you lack in depth knowledge of it? Yet 7 years later my college had disbanded their education program - the Education Guilds had added so many requirements there was not enough academic hours available for have dual, unrelated, majors for undergraduates.

    When you get down to the root of things teaching, even with all the BS the Educational Guilds have added is the easiest job out there. You need no more than four sets of teaching guides for any and all courses you teach and you are set for life. How many students are going to repeat a class that they failed the first time much less do it three more times?

    Sorry for the length of this post; but, it is extremely important to the Republic.

    IMHO you have just correctly defined the problem. In all to many businesses HR is a mine field.

    All organizations from 8-year olds sand lot base ball teams up have “problem children” of various types. It used to be possible to correct the problem with lower level acts - counselling, bad work hours for a period of time, etc., and in extreme cases job termination.

    But, in today’s world those tools don’t exist. You aren’t allowed to be judgmental - but, isn’t that what leaders are supposed to be? You can not enforce standards - but, isn’t that what makes successful companies? You can not focus on a “target” audience, you must be inclusive. But isn’t focusing on a “target audience” what enables start ups to succeed and grow?

    Like it or not the possible loss of your job is a strong motivator to change you activities. If you can not be fired why change or restraint yourself? And, in today’s world who is most likely to be fired - a man or a woman?

    A nice idea if the liberals were rational.

    When, not if, this “experiment fails, the immediate response from the liberals will be “We failed to account for ... Therefore we need to make it more restrictive and try again.” And again, and again...

    Proof of statement?

    Look at the great gay marriage “discussion”. How many times did Proposition 8 fail in California before it passed?
    And when it finally passed that closed the issue and more discussion was prohibited since it was a closed issue. What? The three (or was if four) previous failures didn’t count once the approved answer was achieved?

  • Florida school shooting: Students to march on Washington

    I have no problem with the student march nor with their threat to boycott classes until something is done.

    Since they aren’t missing classes due to sickness or other currently approved reasons their absences are unexcused. Further, teachers are not authorized tp retroactively excuse their absences. After a few days of this temper tantrum even the most rabid student will realize that their virtue signing is costing them their futures. Since it will take months for any meaningful action by Congress to pass meaningful legislation I figure even honor students will have to repeat this year.

    Every time I encounter the phrase “people of color” and its plural “communities of color” I know I have encountered a B.S. argument trying to address the SOCIAL failure of “people of color”.

    The raw scientific fact is there are only a few genes in the human DNA chain that determines “color”. Even then there is only one sequence that produces dark color that justifies the phrase “people of color”.

    So why is it that only that particular sequence is protected by the phrase “people of color.”?

    “People of color” will continue to lag behind the rest of the world until they abandon this lie in attempts to justify their SOCIAL failures. The phrase “people of color” is a cop out; the lazy response in place of hard effort. My mom said it best - “Talk is cheap, effort ain’t”.

    Proofs of point?

    Tuskegee Airmen, Frederick Douglas, General Davis, and Baraka Obama for starters.

    The article said there were five states that were “awarded” an “F”.

    I know that Florida’s Electoral College votes played a significant part in Trump’s victory. How did the other four failing states vote in 2016?

    I might not have asked this question if the report’s source wasn’t “Center for American Progress (CAP)” and reported by ABC Action News. BTW Wikipedia states that Center for American Progress (CAP) is a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization. According to CAP, the center is “dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action.” The Center presents a liberal viewpoint on economic and social issues.
