State of the — Democrat Party?

My, how things have changed since I left the Democrat Party. And, the changes are best summed up in Democrat reactions to President Trump’s State of the Union speech this week.

Where President Barack Obama used the first-person singular pronoun ‘I’ exclusively, President Donald Trump used the first-person plural pronoun ‘we’.

What made the Democrat lawmakers scowl and flee the room and liberal media – Democrat sycophants – and the ACLU cringe? President Trump touted the many wonderful attributes of America, the United States thereof.

  • Unemployment is down, way down-
  • Millions of American workers are getting pay raises and substantial bonuses due to the President’s tax cuts
  • The stock market is hotter than it’s been since 21010
  • Trillions of U.S. capital are headed back to our shores
  • Factories are expanding, some relocating from China to the U.S.A.
  • Welfare is down, way down

During the State of the Union speech, Nancy Pelosi scowled, Luis Guttierez fled the room, the ACLU decries the President’s promotion of American values, and the liberal media gang, progenitors of #FakeNews attack the Chief Executive.

This is the consequence of changes in the Democrat Party leadership: The Democrats no longer represent the working people of America. That part would be better named the Socialist Party of America. Bernie Sanders openly admits his penchant for socialism while present Democrat Party leaders promote socialism while calling it something else.

Socialist governments don’t like prosperity because it weans the people off the government welfare tit. President Trump promotes and works to restore a free-market America where anyone willing to work can achieve the American dream.

The disastrous Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare – was a tool of the socialist to curtail our freedoms, likewise radical Democrat gun-control initiatives that would eviscerate the Second Amendment which exists to assure the American people will always have a measure of defense against tyrannical governments.

Thus my invitation to all traditional Democrat and independent voters to elect true representatives to Congress.

States – And then there were 51

Traditional Americans in California are ruled by far-left extremists and want to restore republican government, as prescribed in the U.S. Constitution.

The New California advocates make this declaration:

The history of the present Governor and Government of California is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of a Tyranny over the Counties of New California and the State of California.

Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to seek a constitutional remedy to the abuse of powers.

We the people of the Counties of New California solemnly publish and declare these counties are, and of Right ought to be, a free and Independent State, that we strive to be free from the State of California, and that as a Free and Independent State, have full power to establish and maintain law and order, to promote general prosperity, and to do all other acts and things, which an Independent New California State may rightfully do.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the Counties of New California, appeal to the California Legislature and the Federal Congress to pass resolutions to create the State of New California. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.

Unlike the Californicators who live in the cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego and others, patriotic, God-fearing, apple-pie-eating, flag-waving Americans populate the vast majority of California counties. The above declaration follows to the letter and to the spirit of the first paragraph of the declaration of the original 13 colonies on July 4, 1776.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

I welcome the 51st state of New California.

From what I read about newly discovered faults and present earthquake activity on the left coast, nature may do the job of ending the leftist tyranny of Californicate before the next ballot initiative does the job.

Headline: Volcanos, earthquakes: Is the ‘Ring of Fire’ alight? http://bit.ly/2nePdo2

The spate of activity around the so-called Ring of Fire has raised concerns that a major and potentially deadly volcanic eruption or earthquake could be on the way.”

Jerusalem: Searching for Significance

The King James Version of the Bible mentions this city 767 times, the New Living Translation count is 1,027. Rockwall, the greatest city on all the earth is not mentioned even once. Bummer.

Center of the Earth

Using the GIS [geographic information system], one researcher estimates the centroid [median point, that point where the medians of a triangle intersect] to be on the eastern coast of Romania.

Ezekiel 5:5 KJV says “This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.” Text of the NLT places Jerusalem “at the center of the nations“.

One can surmise the Bible does not say Jerusalem is precisely in the center of the nations, but pretty doggone close to it.

Mexico City, at almost 22 million residents, reigns as the most populous city on earth while Jerusalem’s headcount runs well under one million.

No ethnic group or nation vies for control of Mexico City. Jerusalem, on the other hand, is the target of all but one of the 15 member nations of the UN Security Council.

One year ago, on December 13, under the administration of Barack Hussein Obama, 14 members of the Security Council voted to condemn Israeli settlements in Jerusalem. One nation, the US, abstained, meaning a sitting US president voted against Israel, the apple of God’s eye [Zechariah 2:8]

Thankfully, in September of this year [2017], President Donald Trump met with Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu in NY City where our president declared Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. By the way, this was not a partisan issue. NY Senator Chuck Schumer agreed with President Trump, saying, “Whatever one’s views are on settlements, anyone who cares about the future of Israel and peace in the region knows that the UN, with its one-sidedness, is exactly the wrong forum to bring about peace. I have spoken directly to the [Obama] Administration numerous times … and in the strongest terms possible urged them to veto this resolution. I am strongly opposed to the UN putting pressure on Israel through one-sided resolutions. An abstention is not good enough. The Administration must veto this resolution.”

Senator Schumer and President Trump are on the same page, with respect to the ownership of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is significant to Israelis. It’s also significant to the entire world.
Psalm 122:6 in our Holy Scripture says, “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.”

Daily, I pray for peace in Jerusalem. Is this a point for your morning devotionals?

Thankful for God’s blessings, indifferent to the curses of millionaire football players

Can God bless America? Why would God bless America and not bless all the other nations?

God bless America.png

There is a story behind the story of today’s news.

I quote Performing Songwriter on the story of the Irving Berlin song made famous by singer Kate Smith: God Bless America.

In 1940, both the Republican and Democratic parties adopted the song as their theme. Realizing that it would look improper to collect royalties on a patriotic ode, Berlin established a trust, the God Bless America Fund, which distributed all proceeds to the Boy and Girl Scouts of America.

The song wasn’t without its critics. Certain Democrats called the song jingoistic, questioning why God should bless America and no other country, and what about separation of church and state? Others griped about Berlin’s pedigree. As a Russian Jew who immigrated to the U.S. in 1893, why should he speak for America? A prominent pastor in New York, Edgar Franklin Romig, grabbed headlines by calling the song a “specious substitute for religion.”

One songwriter who didn’t like Berlin’s anthem was Woody Guthrie. It’s said that he got so fed up with hearing Kate Smith on the radio, he wrote a rebuttal in “This Land Is Your Land.” In the original version of Guthrie’s classic, he painted pictures of a desolate, corrupt country, ending each verse with “God blessed America for you and me.” Learn the full story behind the story from this link: http://performingsongwriter.com/god-bless-america/

Regarding millionaire professional football players who hold disdain for our nation, a poem by Sir Walter Scott comes to mind: ‘The Lay of the Last Minstrel’, Canto sixth.

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

Yes, it is God who blessed America. Our greatness comes not from ourselves but from the One who formed us and set us as a shining city on a hill.

As for the unthankful, disrespectful millionaire football players, despite their boundless wealth, titles, power and pelf (look it up), they shall pass into the dustbin of history unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung. They will no doubt meet up with Woody Guthrie someday.

Super RINO John McCain Joins Democrats to Silence Conservatives

U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ, working alongside U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN,super rino john mccain introduced S. 1989 titled the Honest Ads Act that corresponds to H.R. 4077 of the same title. These two bills were introduced in the respective houses of Congress on the same day.

Read the full text of H.R. 4077 here HR4077_Dishonest_Ads_Act and the full text of the Senate version here Senate-Bill-S_1989-cosponsor-John-McCain. 

I quote from a summary of H.R. 4077 posted on GovTrack.us:

It would also require any website with at least 50 million monthly viewers — including Facebook, Google, and Twitter — to maintain a public list of any organization or person who spends at least $500 in election-related ads.

The public list would facilitate Antifa mob scenes at your home or place of business.

McCain and his anti-Trump congressional buddies dishonestly continue the myth of Trump-Russian collusion. As all America now knows, the collusion was between Hilary Clinton, the DNC and Russia.

More to the point – a summary from PrayForUs.us:

The “Honest” Ads Act from the Democrats and John McCain exposes individual church members to danger by requiring the public disclosure of their names and home addresses to any political thug who wants to harass or attack them and their family members!

This bill is designed to intimidate people from speaking out on any issue related to politics. As 2 Corinthians 3:12 states, “Seeing as we have such hope, we use great boldness (freedom) of speech.”

John McCain and the Democrats want to force churches into silence because Christianity is and always has been the main force opposing the globalism of the godless Democrats and their satanic open borders philosophy.

ACTION

Contact your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative. Tell them you want them to oppose the Honest Ads Act.

Is there truly an economic benefit to lower taxes?

Is there truly an economic benefit to lower taxes?

obama-vs-reagan-economics

I can attest to the veracity of this chart above from Sen. Ted Cruz. President Reagan held office from 1981 through 1989. We started our business in 1987 in the aftermath of the I-30 condo scandal that wiped out several savings-and-loan companies. It was an improved economy that got us over that disastrous scandal.

We enjoyed a booming business under two presidents, “government is the problem” Reagan and “it’s the economy stupid” Clinton.

gdp under 12 presidents

Taxes paid to governments by no means deserve to be labelled “investments”.

Investment defined: the investing of money or capital in order to gain profitable returns, as interest, income, or appreciation in value

Taxes NEVER appreciate your value. It is the returns on investments that add value.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is a measure of economic activity that represents “the total dollar value of all goods and services produced over a specific time period.” [investopedia.com]

Trump haters virulently oppose tax cuts even when tax cuts work to their benefit. Blind hatred as defined in the Urban Dictionary is “to strongly dislike something without knowing the facts, or by using false information“. The Bible warns:

He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? – Luke 6:39

Here’s a little wisdom if you can handle it: A rising tide floats all boats. This means that economic growth is good for Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, anarchists, socialists, Christians, Jews, Muslims, atheists, and communists. (Anyone left out?)

Here’s a little more wisdom: Profitability of businesses forms capital to fund new businesses and to expand existing enterprises. We business owners are the folks who risk our net worth to provide goods and services and employment to add to your net worth.

No nation in all history has ever taxed itself into prosperity.

“I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.” – Sir Winston Churchill

As it is written in Holy Scripture, “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”.

What’s happening in the Land of the Free, the Home of the Brave?

What’s happening in the Land of the Free, the Home of the
Brave? How is it law enforcement officers and prosecutors have become common targets? Who or what is behind well-organized mobs disrupting town hall meetings with the obvious intent to silence our elected representatives?

Deputy DA Violently Beaten While Jogging In Newport Beach.png
Source: CBS Los Angeles

A San Bernardino County prosecutor in the midst of a gang-murder trial was bloodied and beaten into unconsciousness Thursday while on a morning jog in Newport Beach. She wasn’t robbed or raped. She is a prosecutor in a gang-related murder trial. You guess the motive.

San Bernardino is the most dangerous city in California, according to LA Weekly.san bernardino most dangerous city in california.PNG
Why is San Bernardino the most dangerous California city?

Important factors: a very high degree of poverty, a very high cost of living, and FIVE criminal gangs (4 black, 1 Hispanic).

What are common factors associated with gang violence?
1-Poverty
2-Metropolitan residency
3-High cost of living
4-Democrat government
5-Generous welfare program
6-Metropolitan residents believe government can solve all their problems

You can understand how it is that a cluster of poor people who believe government can solve all their problems (hunger, housing, health), will naturally assume that the municipal government that does not solve their problems is responsible for their problems.

From Forbes: Welfare Offers Short-Term Help And Long-Term Poverty, Thanks To Asset Tests 

The bottom line: Government welfare programs strive to make welfare recipients comfortable instead of striving to make them capable of independent living.

How do we change this downward spiral toward anarchy and public disorder? Founding Father Benjamin Franklin knew the answer to this question:

“I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

Even earlier in history, almost 2,000 years ago, in fact, the Apostle Paul said, “Those unwilling to work will not get to eat.

How do we move poor people from government dependency to joining the independent living?

Hunger is a time-proven incentive to work for a living.

Do you know that the labor participation rate (a pleasant alternative to unemployment rate) is 62.9%? 100-62.9=37.1% actual unemployment. FYI – at the peak of the Great Depression unemployment was 25%. (BLS stats http://bit.ly/2jn32Nw)

Where do all the millions of illegal immigrants work? Do I have to tell you the answer? Illegal immigrants do in fact work millions of jobs left open by the welfare system.

If government welfare programs have worked against the people for whom the government is the problemgovernment programs were created, does it not stand to reason that it’s time to change from business-as-usual to common sense alternatives?
