This Republican Urges Democrats to Save Their Party

Requiem for the Democrat PartyRest_In_Peace

There are those Americans, of whom I am one, that recognize a sinister plan at work through the actions of this sitting president. Before taking office, he openly declared his goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America”. His statement begs the question: “Transformation from what to what, Mr. President?”

Today, Easter Sunday 2014, I look back over my shoulder a backward glance, as Paul Harvey used to say. I see a ‘debris field’ of broken promises, politicization of government agencies, and corruption at the highest levels of government right into the Oval Office of the president of the United States of America.

Yes, our president of dubious birthright, born to communists, mentored to communists and surrounded by communists is leaving his mark. Among his ‘accomplishments’, the destruction of the finest medical care systems in the history of the world.

There is one thing he destroys, one knife cut at a time, which portends a total collapse of our republic: destruction of the Democrat Party.

At this point, you may suspect me of departing from fellowship with our founding fathers. I do no such thing.

Some founding fathers feared political parties. George Washington denounced political partisanship a threat to the republic. Consider the words of John Adams, who said,

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

It’s noteworthy that Adams who eschewed partisanship became the de-facto head of his political party, the Federalists.

Political parties are natural. It’s helpful to know God’s perspective on the nature of His creation. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” The only sensible conclusion is simply this: there are no perfect earthly rulers. Period. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Thus, because men are naturally rebellious and refuse to submit directly to the Living God, there must of necessity be a means of checks and balances between competing ideas.

Federalists and Anti-federalists provided this essential competition of ideas at the beginning of our Constitutional Republic and over the years the two parties have come to be known as Democrats and Republicans.

So long as we have this healthy tension within our two-party system, we the People have the final say on all matters. Let’s consider what can happen, when one party disappears.

Our third president and de-facto head of the Anti-federalists, Thomas Jefferson, said,

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

So it is, here we are in 2014 with an elected president who has fundamentally transformed our beloved nation “by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny”. To wit:

  • BLM tyranny in Nevada where heavily armed BLM agents threaten the lives of taxpaying citizens, loyal Americans. We learn how Sen. Harry Reid is using this agency for political purposes.
  • IRS tyranny across the nation, as disclosures day by day reveal how this sitting president has perverted the Treasury Department into a political operative used to suppress dissent.
  • EPS tyranny manifests as “land grabs”, confiscation of water rights, and overreaching authority in all manner of human activities, even to the point of redefining the border of a state.
  • Dramatic changes to census methods will obfuscate corruption perpetrated by this sitting president.

Summary

I foresee destruction of the Democrat Party. Make no mistake: I am a solid conservative Republican. But, I understand why we must have a vibrant two-party system to serve to minimize government tyranny. Voters must think for themselves. Informed decisions sustain the republic. But, we ever so swiftly become “score-card values voters”, mindlessly accepting one person’s evaluation of candidates without actually becoming personally informed to the facts.

"It is important that the United States remain a two-party system. I'm a fellow who likes small parties and the Republican Party can't be too small to suit me."  Hypocrisy of Lyndon B. Johnson

“It is important that the United States remain a two-party system. I’m a fellow who likes small parties and the Republican Party can’t be too small to suit me.”
Hypocrisy of Lyndon B. Johnson

Tyrants like Lyndon B. Johnson would be delighted to see the Republican Party dissolve into vapor. He said as much. As a Republican, I do not want the Democrat Party to vaporize.

I know for a fact Democrats read my blogs and Facebook postings. I urge you Democrats to rescue your party by joining with current conservative Republicans to overturn this president’s dictatorial rule whereby he has trampled the rule of law. As Benjamin Franklin wisely said, “We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”

Borrowing and slightly modifying a typing exercise, now is the time for all good [Democrats] to come to the aid of their [party]. We must have healthy tension provided by two parties to prevent a slide into the abyss of totalitarian government.

Washington & Lee University Students: Ignorance Personified

19 April 2014

As the PBS documentary states, Lee was a man at war with his country and himself - loyal to fellow Virginians, opponent of slavery http://ow.ly/vWKWc

As the above PBS documentary states, Lee was a man at war with his country and with himself – loyal to fellow Virginians, opponent of slavery [PBS website link]

What happened to public education in America? Has political correctness wholly replaced knowledge and common sense altogether?

Consider what a pack of “multi-racial protesters” demand of Washington & Lee University. Read about their demands: http://ow.ly/vWI6F

Headline: Students Demand Acknowledgement of Robert E. Lee’s ‘Racist and Dishonorable Conduct’

A faculty member says, “We take these students concerns seriously.” Seriously delusional, I would say.

Before and throughout the Civil War, Robert E. Lee opposed slavery. He was an abolitionist. When war broke out, President Lincoln invited Robert E. Lee to head the Union Army. Lee declined, because, although he strongly opposed slavery, he was intensely loyal to the people of the state of Virginia.

Political correctness is a tool crafted in the minds of Marx, Engels, Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs. The term came to us in the 1980′s. Political correctness is tyranny, defined by one dictionary as “arbitrary, unreasonable, or despotic behaviour or use of authority”. Political correctness opposes at least two of the five freedoms heralded in the First Amendment.

Political correctness forced Six Flags Over Texas to replace the CSA flag. Original flags represented six sovereign governments that ruled Texas: Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederate States of America (CSA) and the United States of America. When the amusement park first opened, it was, in effect, a Texas history lesson. PC racists, ignorant racists, loudly protested the flag in favor of its removal. The flag is gone. Should we also deny there was ever slavery in Texas? No. There was slave labor in Texas and the CSA flag stands as a memorial to that terrible fact. But, the PC folks effectively steal our history.

When liberals can steal your history, they can control your destiny.

If Federal Tyranny Comes Upon You, Will Your Sheriff Do His/Her Duty?

‪#‎BundyRanchStandoff ended due to two factors: (1) We the People exercised our First and Second Amendments, and (2) the Posse Comitatus Act was at play when Sheriff Doug Gillespie ordered BLM off the Bundy land.

cliven-bundy

The Posse Comitatus Act was passed on June 18, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction. “Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce the state laws.”

Posse Comitatus means “power of the county“.

18 U.S.C. § 1385. Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

10 U.S.C. § 375. Restriction on direct participation by military personnel

The Secretary of Defense shall prescribe such regulations as may be necessary to ensure that any activity (including the provision of any equipment or facility or the assignment or detail of any personnel) under this chapter does not include or permit direct participation by a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps in a search, seizure, arrest, or other similar activity unless participation in such activity by such member is otherwise authorized by law.

Your sheriff is your first line of defense against federal tyranny. Talk with your sheriff to learn how he or she would respond, if federal agencies were running roughshod over his or her constituents.

You and your neighbors are your second line of defense against tyranny.

It’s important to keep in mind that a failure of your sheriff to defend you against tyranny is a sure indication he or she is representing federal government in lieu of his or her constitutional duty. The cure: Elect a sheriff who will keep his/ oath to uphold the Constitution.

Back up plan, in the event of an ineffective sheriff, is our individual right to keep and bear arms.

You have a gun. Do you know how to use it in the defense of others? “Others?” you ask. Yes, our Texas Constitution assigns duty to protect the state and your neighbor, the person(s) close to you.

THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 1. BILL OF RIGHTS, Sec. 23. RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS:

[link: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CN/htm/CN.1.htm]

“Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.”

Having authority and not using it is no better than having no authority at all.

Open Letter to Cong. Steve Stockman: Virtual Currency Tax Reform Act Not A Good Idea

April 8, 2014

An Open Letter To Congressman Steve Stockman

Bitcoins are software - This is merely a marketing image.

Bitcoins are software – This is merely a marketing image.

Honorable Steve Stockman
326 Cannon House Office Building
Independence Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20515

Subject: Your proposed “Virtual Currency Tax Reform Act”

Bitcoin is not in any sense a “virtual currency”, regardless how it is labeled. It is as much a financial transaction as are the use of credit cards, but it cannot be legally considered nor treated as lawful currency. Here’s why.

As per the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5, Congress has authority “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”.

Bitcoin value is a function of supply and demand, just like gold, wheat, gasoline and oil. Therefore, bitcoin is a commodity that is freely traded over the internet between willing buyers and sellers and not the property of any one government, except the natural government of a free market. If you wish to legally define it, for one reason or another, I suggest calling it “private property”.

Whereas, bitcoin is a commodity and whereas Congress does not and cannot “regulate the Value thereof”, your proposed bill can only be considered meaningless.

As a TEA Party organizer in my part of Texas and as an active Republican who is a delegate to the Texas GOP Convention, I encourage you to withdraw your proposed “Virtual Currency Tax Reform Act” to avoid embarrassment. Your work to preserve traditional values is greatly appreciated and I read everything you publish on Facebook.

Respectfully,

John White

CARGO Rockwall Gun Club – April 2014: Military Firearms

 April 7, 2014

Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership

Citizens Association for Responsible Gun Ownership

April showers bring military powers. Well, I know that’s not exactly the rhyme you learned from Mom. It is, however, a reminder that it’s time this Thursday for our monthly CARGO Rockwall gun club meeting.

 What:              CARGO Rockwall Gun Club

Theme:            Military Firearms

Where:            Soulman’s Bar-B-Que in Rockwall

Date:               April 10th

Time:               6 to 7 pm

 Bring your military arms: rifles and pistols.

Be prepared to describe your weapon(s) as to origin, application, type ammo, country of origination, where to buy a like weapon, what you like or dislike.

We pass these weapons around to give everyone an opportunity to get a feel for them.

Let’s review safety rules:

  • Bring all weapons UNLOADED and encased. Yes, we know it’s lawful to openly carry long guns, but who else knows that little factoid?
  • DO NOT bring Ammo. There will be a separate meeting where we’ll be learning about ammo, but let’s leave any opportunity for an accident at home.
  • A designated safety inspector will examine your weapons to confirm safe condition. This measure isn’t an expression of our mistrust of you. It’s our method of preventing death or injury to our guests. It’s just common sense.
  • Got a CHL? Wonderful. Your loaded concealed weapon is welcome, but at no time, for any reason, we do not pull out loaded weapons. Loaded concealed weapons must remain concealed.
  • If you have a handgun for show and tell, it follows the above rules: unloaded and encased.

 CHL instructor Jack Sukenik will serve as range master this week. Jack’s extensive knowledge of military weapons is a valuable asset to the club.

 Are children welcome? Absolutely! Welcome and invited. Children are  never too young to learn firearm safety.

What is the cost? We have no fees or dues at this time. Someday, perhaps. However, we do ask you to go through the serving line before finding a good seat in the private dining room. This is how our host pays salaries for the cleanup crew and his electric bill.

 Firearms dealers will be available to help you select weapons for self-defense. Our CHL instructors are ready and able to get you licensed for concealed-carry. Our Rockwall Police Department representatives are ready and eager to answer your questions and to meet you.

We are citizens serving citizens. Our objectives: educate our community on the history and efficacy of gun ownership, teach firearms safety, educate citizen and law enforcement on laws regulating gun ownership, and foster civil, respectful relations between law enforcement officers and civilians.

“Death Panels” – The Lie Half Way Round The World

April 1, 2014

UPDATE: Terry Mace, man at center of life-support fight, dies – 1 April 2014

"A lie gets half way around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

“A lie gets half way around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”

What Lie?

A candidate jockeying to win Texas’ SD-2 senate seat repeatedly claims SB 303, a bill authored by Dr. Bob Deuell, provides for “death panels“. This ignorant claim brings to mind something Daniel Patrick Moynihan said: “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.

There is a little one must know, if one wishes to have the facts on his or her side.

It’s a Fact

  • Under present law, hospitals can remove life supports within 10 days, if an alternate care facility cannot be found.
  • All Texas pro-life groups signed off on do not resuscitate (DNR) procedures in 1999 and 2007 – Now some oppose, in large part for pecuniary reasons.
  • Dr. Deuell authored a bill, SB 303, that extended 10 days to 28, thereby providing more time to relocate a patient to an extended care facility.
  • SB 303 also simplified matters for family and legal guardians in that they can participate in the disposition of the patient without going to court.

Case in Point – Terry Mace

Extract from ABC News: Parents Win Fight Against Daughter-in-Law to Keep Son on Life Support

“Former Army Staff Sgt. Terry Mace, 43, collapsed of a heart attack while talking to a friend at his home in Killeen, Texas, March 6. He was hospitalized shortly after and was initially unresponsive, Mace’s father’s attorney, Stephen Casey, said. Mace has been at the center of a legal battle between his father, Terry Mace Sr., who is fighting to keep him on life support, and his estranged wife, who has attempted to terminate it.”

Terry’s dad persuaded a judge to award the father temporary guardianship, thereby preventing Terry’s premature death, as his wife wanted. Terry was lucky. Far too many are not. Terry Mace is now recovering. But, his story could have ended the way another’s did nine years ago.

Consider the case of Teresa Marie “Terri” Schiavo who languished through a 12-year court battle before her husband won. Her parents wanted to take full responsibility for her. Her husband wanted her dead. Husband won and he directed the hospital to remove her feeding tube. Over the next several days, that Terri starved to death. Read: The Whole Terri Schiavo Story

How Would SB 303 Have Changed Things?

Terry’s dad would have needed only to go to the hospital, instead of having to hire a lawyer and go before a judge. His dad would have been able to acquire his son’s medical records and had more time to find an alternative facility.  The hospital would have been required to administer nutrition and hydration unless they further harmed Terry.

Bob Hall’s campaign ignorantly labels hospital ethics committees that have been around for years “death panels” as though Dr. Deuell’s SB 303 was crafting something sinister and unusual.

For example, Parkland Hospital’s ethics committee incorporates doctors, nurses, social workers, religious and spiritual leaders, administrators (managers), lawyers, and people from the community, thereby assuring broad interests served on behalf of patients and all parties involved.

This committee helps patients and health care providers think about, talk about, and make choices at times when there are questions about values, beliefs, or choosing the right thing to do. ” – Parkland website

 My Choice For Senate District 2

I voted for Dr. Bob Deuell in the primary. I’ll vote for him in the runoff election, May 27 and I invite you to vote likewise.

For more information about my choice, check out Dr. Deuell’s campaign website at http://bobdeuell.org/ 

I invite you to follow Senator Deuell on Facebook and Twitter.

OBAMA ANTI-ISRAEL STANCE IMPERILS SAFETY AND SECURITY OF USA

March 28, 2014

Visa Waiver Program – Political Ploy of POTUS

Our U.S. Department of State has set up the Visa Waiver Program to facilitate travel between select countries and ours. According to the official website, “The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) allows citizens of participating countries* to travel to the United States without a visa for stays of 90 days or less, when they meet all requirements…”

Among these friendlies are Great Britain, Australia, Japan and Switzerland. The one country least likely to be an enemy is Israel, but Israel is not on the list. Obama’s minions in State say it’s because “

Fox News New York reports,

Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, has called on the State Department to “end its widespread, arbitrary practice of denying young Israelis tourist visas.” Other pro-Israel members of Congress have also pressed for answers. Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin said some Congress members are pushing for legislation that would exempt Israel from the requirements to qualify for the waiver program altogether. - myfoxny.com

Obama is pushing his pro-Arab, pro-Islam agenda by denying ease of travel between Israel and the U.S.

The Times of Israel: 80% increase in US rejections of Israeli visa requests

Let’s tell Congress to get behind pro-Israel lawmakers like Sen. Schumer to get Israel on the list of Visa Waiver Program Designated Countries.
