#DrainTheSwamp: Obama Deep-State Operatives Flaunt Constitutional Jurisdictions to Cripple the Trump Administration

us district judge derrick watson

Obama appointee, U.S. Federal District Judge Derrick Watson again attacks the constitutional authority of the United States of America.

Again? Yes. Again.

Watson and Obama graduated together from Harvard in 1988. In 2012, Barack Obama appointed Watson in November 2012.

Coincidentally, Obama paid a surprise visit to Hawaii mere hours before Watson first ruled earlier this year against President Trump’s moratorium on Muslim immigrants from Middle Eastern nations identified by the Obama administration as sources of Islamic terrorists.

Watson is acting on behalf of a Muslim organization in Hawaii and his order circumvents the U.S. Supreme Court.

Tell Congress to de-fund Derrick Watson’s office along with other leftist federal judges, including another Obama appointee, Theodore D. Chuang in Maryland.

Chuang, like Obama and Watson, was born and raised in Hawaii. Chuang is also a Harvard graduate who served in the Obama administration with the DOJ before his appointment to the Maryland court in 2014.

Here is the text I sent to each of the above:

Obama Deep-State federal justices Derrick Watson (HI) and Theodore D. Chuang (MD) overstep their constitutional jurisdictions to undermine the constitutional authority of the President of the United States of America.

Impeachment would be near impossible, but you can de-fund the two offices, effectively putting them both on the street.

Therefore, I urge you to make haste with the defunding of the two district judges Derrick Watson (HI) and Theodore D. Chuang (MD).

The Founders cited 27 causes for separation and taxation wasn’t number one. You didn’t know?

The Founders cited 27 causes for separation and taxation wasn’t number one. You didn’t know?

causes

Taxation without representation was way down the list, number 17, to be precise. This cause was certainly important, but not the greatest provocation to rebellion.

What was the number one reason cited by the founders to “to dissolve the political bands” with Great Britain?

Answer: King George did not follow the Rule of Law.

Grievance No. 1: “He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”

Instead of following Common Law, King George, speaking metaphorically, used his pen and his telephone to create law out of thin air.

What was the second in importance grievance that moved us to rebellion?

Grievance No. 2: “He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.”

The federal judiciary has been overstepping its constitutional jurisdiction to impose immoral and illegal constraints on the fifty states as it also has been creating law out of thin air. It’s called ‘case law’, but I challenge the reader to find the term anywhere in the U.S. Constitution Articles and Amendments.

On this solemn 241st anniversary of the birth of our nation, we find ourselves once again resetting the role of federal government.

Will there be bloodshed? In case you haven’t noticed, blood is flowing in the streets of our major cities now.

Proponents of Sharia Law challenge constitutional law.

Americans, sensible to the perils of lawlessness and out-of-control federal government, are buying firearms and ammunition at a breathtaking pace.

But, God has answered the prayers of his people. We are at a turning point. If We the People who wish to make America great again turn to God and repent of our collective and individual sins, God will preserve us.

We cannot and will not make America great again solely through political acts. Renewal of our nation of necessity will be a consequence of our people yielding to the Grace of God.

Rockwall – Retail Business Changes On The Horizon

A recent survey mailed to residents of the City of Rockwall asked what businesses our people wish to have along Interstate 30 highway. At some time in the near future, look for exit signs like these below.

Retail Stores

Blue Ribbon News: City of Rockwall seeks resident input for I-30 corridor expansion 

Perhaps a better question is, what businesses will remain along the I-30 corridor through Rockwall?

The U.S. economy is undergoing a major shift akin the Industrial RevolutionThe Internet of Things (IoT).

Forbes: These 21 Retailers Are Closing 3,591 Stores — Who Is Next?

The above article was published March 20, 2017. Across the country, ‘big box’ and small retail stores are closing. In fact, the Sears (Sears and Roebuck) company revealed substantial doubt about its ability to stay in business in an annual report filed March 21, 2017.

Sears is by no means alone in shuttering its stores. Macy’s, Sports Authority, and Radio Shack are among declining retailers. Wal-Mart isn’t far behind, by the way.

U.S. population continues to grow, so it’s not a matter of population decline affecting retail businesses. We continue to eat to our heart’s content, enjoy vacations abroad, and buy new homes and cars. Where go the customers?

On-line sales now dominate the marketplace and Amazon.com leads the pack.

Investors Business Daily: Retailers Face 2017 ‘Reckoning,’ More ‘Sad Malls’ As Amazon Keeps Booming

Sears and Montgomery Ward preceded Amazon. Something, a new marketing, and a new delivery experience will make Amazon.com obsolete.

There is no reason to panic (unless you work for one of the ‘big box’ stores.

Change is the one true constant in life.change is the only constant
Wall Street Journal: Brick-and-Mortar Stores Are Shuttering at a Record Pace

There is no reason to believe that this will abate at any point in the foreseeable future,” said Mark Cohen, the director of retail studies [at] Columbia Business School and a former executive at Sears Canada Inc. and other department stores.

What I See Ahead

Big-box stores will be much fewer. In their places, newer and smaller businesses will set up shop, partitioning the former store occupant’s space.

I expect to see small showroom stores that allow a prospective customer to see and touch products that will be ordered on-line and delivered to the customer’s home or place of business.

What do I want to see along the Rockwall I-30 corridor? I want a thriving retail environment unhampered by idealistic urban planners whose burdensome designs and regulations cause business owners and investors to go elsewhere.

While shopping for a birthday gift for my daughter yesterday (22 Apr. 2017), my inability to read store signs hidden from view by trees greatly irritated me. A former city councilman, an honest-to-goodness progressive, said signs are unnecessary because we have the internet.

By no means do I want the dead shopping mall syndrome to overtake Rockwall.

Can’t happen here, you say? Really? Allow me to take you on a tour of dead shopping malls across the great state of Texas. Reference DeadMalls.com 

Home Depot and Lowe’s big-box stores have a large inventory of stuff, but I find the local Ace Hardware Store to likely stock specialty hardware of all kinds than do the big-box stores.

I remember hearing it said that Home Depot would put Ace Hardware out of business. If anything, Ace is busier now than ever.

All the above is not meant as doom-and-gloom, but to draw your attention to the inevitable changes that will come to our city.

Unfortunately, I sense the next Rockwall City Council will move toward the progressive left with unrealistic urban planning and more onerous governmental regulations.

Why?

Because our residents are unwilling to take the time to participate, to learn how government works. Progressive activists will take control of city government. As government gets bigger the cost of government will also greatly rise. Liberty is inversely proportional to the size of government. As government becomes larger, our liberties diminish.

I expect unbridled housing construction to introduce huge challenges to water resources.

The Rockwall Open Spaces people work to preserve green spaces, nature trails, and recreational areas in the rest of Rockwall County but when money talks, landowners will sell to the highest bidder.  And, you can be sure there will be fierce competition from developers of homesites and apartment complexes. I-30 is the draw.

I’ll be addressing transportation issues in another blog.

What’s a former president to do with his time and money? How about destroying the nation?

Barack Obama is the first Democrat president in history to destroy his own political party.

When Obama entered the office of president, Democrats held a 58-seat majority in the Senate, 256 seats in the House, and 12 state governors.

According to the Washington Times, “[Democrats] lost the House and ceded the majority of governorships in 2010, held serve in 2012 with Mr. Obama’s re-election, then lost control of the Senate in 2014 and control of the White House this year. All told, Democrats have shed 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats, and 12 governorships.” http://bit.ly/2hl0BZP

After leaving office, Obama did not follow the custom of all previous presidents by getting out of the way of his successor. Instead, Obama chose to live in Washington, D.C. to lead a continuing assault on our nation, our Constitution, and our President.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, describes how Obama’s community organizing handbook teaches his thugs how to disrupt and bully Congress. I quote from the article:

Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall.”

obama linked activists have training manual.PNG

Obama knows a lot about leftist radical disruption. He was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents, and mentored by a well-known communist. Destruction of his own party was not enough. His next goal is the destruction of our beloved nation.

What’s a patriotic American citizen to do?

Holy Scripture informs us, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

This same chapter of the Bible educates us on how to counter radical leftist community organizers. We are to take a stand against the demonic attacks by Obama’s trained thugs by putting on the whole armor of God.

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…” Ephesians 6:14-18

Pray for all elected office holders including municipal leaders, to state and county, the Congress, the President and Vice President, and federal judges.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2

The battle is not a political contest. This is spiritual warfare as we have never before known.

Bill Gates compares Donald Trump to JFK

While radical leftist Democrats scheme to steal this election, Bill Gates states the obvious: Trump is going to be good for America.
JFK-vis-a-vis-DJT.png
 
CNBC Politics: Bill Gates says Trump has the opportunity to be like JFK http://cnb.cx/2gW9z0h
 
I confess my unbelief. When prophets foretold the election of Donald Trump as our 45th president, I didn’t believe them. I voted for Ted Cruz in the runoff. That Tuesday evening after the runoff polls closed and the GOP candidate became a settled matter, I was down, a little ‘blue’, disappointed. My prayer to God was this: “God, you’ve got to give me a good reason to attend the state GOP convention.” He answered my prayer in mere minutes when I opened my Twitter account I found a tweet from Lance Wallnau, saying, “Remember what I told you?”
 
Lance and other Christian leaders supported Mr. Trump back in 2015. Lance even prophesied that Trump would be the next president, based on Isaiah 45:1-6, likening the Republican to Cyrus.
 
Cyrus, if you don’t know or remember, was the man who conquered Babylon and restored Jewish captives to Jerusalem, along with the utensils for the temple.
 
Lance’s tweet buoyed me. From that point in time onward, I was at peace.
 
God is giving America a second chance.

Government Mandated Homosexuality – Seeing a Point of No Return on the Horizon

A retired public school teacher remarked to me how she has come to believe homosexuality among high school students is ‘normal’ “because there is so much of it“. This begs the question: What is normal?

One dictionary defines normal as an adjective: serving to establish a standard.  As my business associate of many years has said, “The wonderful thing about standards is there are so many to choose from.”

For over 4,000 years homosexual acts have been anathema to People of the Book and later Muslims. (People of the Book, POB, is a Muslim reference to Jews and Christians.) Read Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years to catch up on the history of homosexuality. The universally accepted standard for wholesome families has been males bonding with females.

What changed the normal for the American family? It was a ruling by the Warren court in 1958 that undermined the original intent of the Eighth Amendment. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “The [Eighth] Amendment must draw its meaning from the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.

Evolving standards of decency led the Canadian parliament to mandate homosexuality as the new normal in 2005, merely eleven years ago. Within two years of the so-called hate-crime law, Canadian courts ruled unlawful the criticism of homosexuality, a ruling that was a stake in the heart of the freedom of speech. For more on this subject and its deleterious effects on Canadian society, read A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights.

out from under book cover
Dawn Stefanowicz delivers a provocative, gripping, no-holds-barred account of what it was like to grow up with a homosexual father

The term progressive in contemporary America should be understood for what it actually is. Progressives are actually digressive. I say this on the basis of the one immutable, unchanging standard of decency, the Holy Bible as summarized by the Ten Commandments. The Living God, Creator of the universe, El Shaddai is the immutable standard of decency and has been on record thousands of years, about five thousand years, as a matter of fact.

As corporations like Target, Kohls and Frito-Lay began to invite men into the restrooms, dressing rooms and showers formerly reserved for women and girls, our mayor Jim Pruitt proposed an ordinance to protect our women and girls. One sad note was a Rockwall mother, a teacher at a nearby university who proudly announced her ‘transgendered’ child, spoke against the ordinance. In her brief speech, she referred to her offspring as he, she, him and her. DMN story Rockwall mom seeks safe, loving world for transgender daughter. In my nearly seven decades of life I never once considered having a daughter with male genitalia.

American society accelerates a race toward a point of no return where the foundational principle of majority rule, the rule of law, traditional standards of decency go by the wayside as progressives push to normalize homosexuality. The contemporary Democrat Party embraces and embodies all that progressives stand for: mandatory official atheism, mandatory homosexuality, and socialism.

What’s the cure? Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago revealed that the cure for sin is the sacrifice of himself. As it is written, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” He warned of a place reserved for those who reject him where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.

Time is coming and is nigh upon us when our federal government will mandate homosexuality – aka sodomy, aka unnatural affections – upon all of our American society. Progressives, if successful, will effectively outlaw Christianity and nullify the Bill of Rights. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders agree on this agenda, as do ungodly leaders of the Democrat Party.

My suggestion: Turn from wickedness to the one True God in whose hands are the gifts of forgiveness and eternal life.

I close, leaving the testimony of a transgendered man who repented and turned to God for deliverance. He says, “I have everything. I have Jesus.”

Beyond the Galaxy – Pseudo Scientific Escapism

April 15, 2016, AD

Uber rich and the unproven Inteligencia, including Carl Sagan (deceased and still on or under the earth), Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and so on, they dream of travel to another planet, a shining planet like Earth in a galaxy far, far away.

Among the above named are one or two who envision settling a colony on Mars. Why?

There is a close relationship between atheism and pseudo-science. If in your worldview we are but spontaneous products of billions of years of evolution, creatures formed without a creator, unplanned accidents of evolution, it’s understandable.

Worldviews in Contrast

Atheistic Worldview

If in your worldview we are but spontaneous products of billions of years of evolution, creatures formed without a creator, unplanned accidents of evolution, it’s understandable. Adopting such a worldview, you are threatened with overpopulation and a very nasty end of human existence on this planet and find it therefore, imperative a new home planet be found.

Your fellow  humanists point to the misery and poverty of India where the population density is approximately 1,156 people per mi2. Unsustainable to the most casual observer – right? Let’s compare India, a place unknown to most Americans, to one of our 50 states known to most Americans: New Jersey.

An approximate 2016 New Jersey state population of 8,985,500 persons inhabiting 1,029 mi2 yields a population density of 1,029 persons per mi2. Question: Does NJ Governor Chris Christie appear emaciated to you? (Coincidentally, the Trump Taj Mahal hotel and casino are located in Atlantic City, New Jersey; the original Taj Mahal is located in the Indian state of Agra. Obviously, the earth is nowhere near its ultimate capacity to sustain life.

Judeo-Christian Worldview

My worldview sees the intricacies of all living things. The Golden Ratio, Fibonacci Sequences, and Fractals underscore the fact of design by a designer. Try as you may, never in all history can are there documented, repeatable scientific instances whereby chemicals thrown together spontaneously create life.

Furthermore, my Christian worldview accepts at face value the promises of God. For example, the He will supply all my needs, meaning there will never be a time when earth’s resources become depleted.

As a third-grade child, I was taught that the world would run out of oil within 20 years. More than sixty years later on, Texas alone now has greater proven oil reserves than Saudi Arabia. In fact, a recent glut of crude oil caused the price per barrel to plummet down to around $32 per barrel.

God supplies all my needs at just the right time, often at the 11th hour, even the 11th hour and 59th minute.

Not to confuse Mormonism with Christianity, I point back in time to the old 1970s era TV show Battlestar Galactica in which the actors were searching for a shining planet called Earth.

In Conclusion

Yes, pseudo-scientists yearn for another planet to which only the elite of society may escape. NASA squanders billions of dollars in search of ‘intelligent life’ on another planet far, far away.

Earth is in perfect balance. I could address the issue of CO2 and the pseudo-science of global warming/climate change, but I defer to another time.

I do urge you to be alarmed at how pseudo-scientists gain the upper hand: control of the government, control of public discourse.

 

a new low in science
20 scientists sent a letter to the White House calling for their political opponents to be investigated

Censorship, persecution, and political corruption are the tools of a totalitarian state. This band of theorists violates the tenets of sound science. They eschew the scientific method in favor of a belief system tantamount to pagan religion.

Our beloved Constitution is at peril. Therefore, our liberties, our fundamental, natural rights are also at peril.

What will you do to preserve the republic?
