A Strange, Stressful, Sorrowful, Yet Joyful Week

 

This week in Israel, the people went through a two-day test which runs the gauntlet of emotions. On successive days starting at sundown Tuesday through to sundown Thursday Israelis mostly experience sorrow-filled remembrances straight to joyous celebratory elation. This year the changeover at sundown Wednesday was particularly spectacular. What happened was Wednesday was Israel’s Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day). This was followed immediately at sundown through Thursday by Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) which this year was kind of special as Israel turned seventy years old, that is the re-founded Israel, as Israel historically is over three thousand years old. So, at sundown Wednesday Israelis put aside the memorials and remembrance of those who have fallen to keep Israel free, both civilians and military, with some sorrowful and all solemn thoughts straight to celebratory glee with picnics and barbecues with much singing and Wednesday night fireworks everywhere. In many ways having the two days linked are very Israel and quite an experience. They fit together well despite the obvious opposite emotions of each day. Yes, Israelis of all stripes have much to be thankful for and to celebrate on her birthday on the Hebrew calendar as Israel is amongst the few nations in this region which has largely peace and economic health and this year was listed as the eleventh happiest nation of the world, a full seven spots ahead of the United States. But before we celebrate the wonders which are Israel, we must give thanks to those who gave their all in defense of this nation and its ideals, values and rebirth. We owe them everything we have and more, so we respectfully, often emotionally and ever thankfully remember and say prayers for these souls. After this, we can be free to celebrate the gift those souls founded and protected with their very lives showing that we appreciate that which they gave as their promise and more to allow Israel to reach seventy years after rebirth.

 

The celebrations on Wednesday night are very public with everyone mixing together at any of the numerous celebrations. We will never reach the heights of celebration which happened with the actual founding day when Israel was announced reborn after around two-thousand-years of our living in the Diaspora as if we were dry bones scattered throughout a valley in the desert. This was the prophesy the Dry Bones by Ezekiel in Chapter 37 where the analogy of the dry bones to the Children of Israel is told (see verse below). Ezekiel speaks of coming upon a valley of bones all jumbled and mixed without order or any form. Then Hashem commands that the prophet declare His Name over the bones commanding them to rise and assemble. The bones then start to move with each bone connecting to the next reforming the skeletal structure of the fallen. This was the awakening of the Jewish People in their exile from whence they had been scattered for almost two thousand years in exile. As the bones connect, sinew appears upon them holding them together and then muscle tissue and skin covering them making them appear whole, but not quite whole as they lacked spirit. Then Hashem commands the prophet to declare His name once more and spirit is instilled and they become truly alive. Here are the actual worlds.

 

Valley of the Dry Bones Rising

Valley of the Dry Bones Rising

 

1) The hand of the Lord came upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley, and that was full of bones
2) And He made me pass by them round about, and lo! they were exceedingly many on the surface of the valley, and lo! they were exceedingly dry.
3) Then He said to me; “Son of man, can these bones become alive?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You [alone] know.”
4) And He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’
5) So says the Lord God to these bones; Behold, I will cause spirit to enter into you, and you shall live!
6) And I will lay sinews upon you, and I will make flesh grow over you and cover you with skin and put breath into you, and you will live, and you will then know that I am the Lord.”
7) So I prophesied as I was commanded, and there arose a noise when I prophesied, and behold a commotion, and the bones came together, bone to its bone!
8) And I looked, and lo! sinews were upon them, and flesh came upon them, and skin covered them from above, but there was still no spirit in them.
9) Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, O son of man, and say to the spirit, ‘So says the Lord God: From four sides come, O spirit, and breathe into these slain ones that they may live.’ ”
10) And I prophesied as He had commanded me, and the spirit came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, a very great army, exceedingly so.
11) Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are all the house of Israel. Behold they say, ‘Our bones have become dried up, our hope is lost, we are clean cut off to ourselves.’
12) Therefore, prophesy and say to them, So says the Lord God: Lo! I open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves as My people, and bring you home to the land of Israel.
13) Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and lead you up out of your graves as My people.
14) And I will put My spirit into you, and you shall live, and I will set you on your land, and you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and have performed it,” says the Lord.
15) And the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
16) “And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write upon it, ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel his companions’; and take one stick and write upon it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and all the house of Israel, his companions.’
17) And bring them close, one to the other into one stick, and they shall be one in your hand.
18) And when the children of your people say to you, saying, ‘Will you not tell us what these are to you?’
19) Say to them, So says the Lord God: Behold I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim and the tribes of Israel his companions, and I will place them with him with the stick of Judah, and I will make them into one stick, and they shall become one in My hand.
20) And the sticks upon which you shall write shall be in your hand before their eyes.
21) And say to them, So says the Lord God: Behold I will take the children of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side, and I will bring them to their land.
22) And I will make them into one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel, and one king shall be to them all as a king; and they shall no longer be two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms anymore.
23) And they shall no longer defile themselves with their idols, with their detestable things, or with all their transgressions, and I will save them from all their habitations in which they have sinned, and I will purify them, and they shall be to Me as a people, and I will be to them as a God.
24) And My servant David shall be king over them, and one shepherd shall be for them all, and they shall walk in My ordinances and observe My statutes and perform them.
25) And they shall dwell on the land that I have given to My servant, to Jacob, wherein your forefathers lived; and they shall dwell upon it, they and their children and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever.
26) And I will form a covenant of peace for them, an everlasting covenant shall be with them; and I will establish them and I will multiply them, and I will place My Sanctuary in their midst forever.
27) And My dwelling place shall be over them, and I will be to them for a God, and they shall be to Me as a people.
28) And the nations shall know that I am the Lord, Who sanctifies Israel, when My Sanctuary is in their midst forever.”

 

Some people have challenged the veracity of this prophesy claiming that the current state of Israel does not merit this prophesy. We have always felt that it is exactly telling of the reconstruction of Israel as the modern nation state. After seeing pictures of the Concentration Camps, the work camps and the death camps, one can almost feel the description of the dry bones scattered on a vast valley floor. Now there were Jews who had already made Aliyah before World War II as well as the Jews who had resided in Israel throughout from antiquity to the modern day. These were the initial sinew as they, possibly without foreknowledge, were making Israel ready for the arrival of the masses from that valley of bones. The dry bones were the European Jews who had survived what can only be described as hell on earth, also the Jews who resided in the Arab world who were cast from their homes and all wealth and valuable items such as jewelry and other items of value or desirable confiscated as their suitcases were searched as they were deported, or worse were chased by mobs in one of the numerous pogroms where the Jews fled without even a suitcase and just the clothes on their backs, and finally the Russian Jews who in the initial wave were also often stripped of all wealth before being permitted to leave for Israel with many having been sent to prison or Siberia work camps before finally being permitted to leave. This story can be applied to the Ethiopian Jews and various other Jews who have found their way home after over nineteen-hundred years. Upon arriving from Europe or the Arab world and reaching Israel, if they were present when the nation was born on the evening of May 14, 1948 (Iyyar 6, 5708 on the Jewish calendar) and attacked by six Arab armies the next morning at sunrise. Without any organized military, the Jews took separate revolutionary squads, worked out some form of chain of command, marshalled forces and weaponry, and somehow managed to survive the Arab assaults. Israel lost some portions of land with Gaza being held by Egypt and the Shomron by Jordan. These illegal occupations of Israeli lands continued until they were liberated during the Six Day War in June of 1967.

 

Once peace was established in 1949, the Jews with their Arab neighbors who had stayed during the war, some even assisting and fighting alongside the Jewish Israelis, this was especially true of the Druze citizens, began to build a nation. Initially, Israel was an agricultural economy with socialist communes known as Kibbutz forming the backbone of the nation. Israel was not a very wealthy nation during these years and it was not until the Russian Aliyah that a sizable industrial base was established with many industries built around ideas leading to a robust research and development system. This was what would transform over time into Israel being known for its start-up companies which emphasize innovation and the search for the next new item. This was the coming of muscle onto the bones and soon thereafter in the 1970’s and 1980’s that Israel received her skin and then one of the most remarkable items came about, and this was one which deserved celebration this week. The children of Israel were about to receive their spirits leaving only one more item which we would need to develop ourselves before all of the prophesy can be realized. This final item is our soul. Hashem provided our nation reunited with both Israel and Judah being made whole, one with the other. The ingathering, as our reestablishing of the nation of Israel is often referred, has brought together tribes thought lost since the Assyrian conquest of the Ten Tribes of Israel, the northern kingdom. It was at a later date when Judah fell to the Babylonians who had conquered the Assyrians. Babylon fell to Persia who fell to Alexander the Great and Grecian rule which fell to the Romans who dispersed the Jews throughout their empire as punishment for revolting against the Romans a second time. This dispersion was supposed to destroy the Jewish People, as this has been the result with others the Romans had treated similarly such as the Carthaginians. We realize we constantly use them as our example for one simple reason, they are the only other peoples who the Romans treated as such who are remembered simply because of their three wars with Rome known as the Punic Wars. As for other examples, the Roman dispersion was obviously quite good at removing a people from history.

 

The promise in this prophesy that we would be a single nation again proves true despite appearances sometimes with our politics. There is that one last matter, regaining righteous souls worthy of having Hashem reside amongst us. The regaining of our souls and reestablishing our religion making positive that we restore every last gram of our laws and especially of Torah is required if we are to be worthy of building the Third Temple and having Hashem in our midst. Anything less than a worthy nation steeped in Torah and the prophesies from the age of Judges and Prophetic revelations would result in a cataclysm of unknowable scope. The good news is that Israel has ushered in a wave of Jews returning to full practice or their best efforts possible considering how many were raised in homes with parents who were not very strict in their practice often practicing their political alignment of secular humanism. Secular Humanism and the core belief of relativity is where everything is relative and there are no absolute rules which makes nothing intrinsically good or evil. In this new age relativism, everything is as good or bad as each person decides them to be. There must not be standards chiseled in stone, and this phrasing is intentional to directly mean that even the Ten Commandments (see image below) are not in any way applicable to modern standards as the Ten Commandments are not flexible enough, there is no give and take to them. Such set standards are the worst items anyone can hold as true and try to impose them onto society. There is one rule, and that is that there are no rules, well, other than the one rule ruling out rules. After that, everything is up to each and every one of us to decide what is right and what is wrong for our own little world and then should anybody dare to disagree, then we are to throw a huge hissy fit and claim at least that we have been assaulted by a macroaggression. This will lead to counselling and possibly a week or so of intense bed rest until we feel ready to face the world and risk somebody believing differently than each of us has chosen. In this world, the only safe position is to have no positions on anything and to simply accept whatever comes our way and just realize that standards and morality are simple items used to control our lives and make us do what the authorities desire. Never mind that this new-age relativism is being used to allow those with power to do whatever they desire without consequences while it is destroying lives of the most vulnerable.

Fortunately, this epidemic in Israel is mostly infecting the Tel Aviv general area while much of the nation is returning to Torah and attempting to live a moral life under the rules and precepts found within. And yes, at the risk of causing numerous microaggressions, we follow the Ten Commandments to the best of our limited abilities. For many this is a work in progress. It actually is a surprising thing when one returns to Israel, Eretz Yisroel, the Holy Land as it actually is a holy land and returning to or finding for the initial time your Jewish faith and its backbone, the Torah, easily takes root and you progress. Perhaps it is the Hebrew language which is another work in progress. From what we have experienced here in Israel has been that the people are mostly friendly and helpful. They are very understanding and patient knowing that there are those amongst us who require a person who can relate with us in our native language, be that Russian, English, French or virtually any other language. There are Jews who have returned from virtually every nation on the planet, or so it appears. What is so very interesting is how Israel is bucking the direction being taken by the rest of the developed world instead of throwing out everything which is old, whether it has been tried and true having proven valid for centuries. Judeo-Christianity must be overturned, as it is archaic. The American Constitution is written on parchment, can you believe, parchment, what is parchment anyways, did they not have paper back then? Anyways, anything on parchment is too old and has to go. That includes Torah, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, the Magna Carta, and we are pretty sure the original Bibles were on parchment, so have to go, too old anyways. The question is where will these founders of this brave new world going to get their standards, the rules for their society? We bet we can tell you.

 

What one need understand is in order to get rid of an existing governance such as they have in the United States, the first thing is you have to remove any weapons from the field of battle. That includes everything which underpins the society you are warring against. In the case of the Western World, that means that Judeo-Christianity has to go and all of the morals it uses. That is why the new wave standard of there are no standards are being foisted upon the youth. Once the old system has been brought down, be that through a coup, massive civil unrest, or simply being elected and creating a situation by which you take complete control, then there will suddenly be a requirement for standards. Any guesses from where they will get these standards? If you guessed from Judeo-Christianity, though it will have some new bright and cuddly name, then you have figured some of this out. When the new people who desire to run the world take over, expect there will be almost uncountable laws and regulations and requirements all designed to allow them to remain in control and you subservient. The new leaders will figure that if you were duped sufficiently to permit their destruction of everything which used to run and keep government under control, then you will simply comply with whatever you are instructed to perform. Many of these so-called grassroots rallies are anything but as they are planned and organized by a group which demands complete control of the levers of power. Once they have that, then all bets are off and things will change so drastically and inalterably that many who had believed that the change these people offered was wonderful will be left wondering what just struck their little piece of heaven on earth. Israel, on the other side, is moving towards her religious roots and holding firmly to a scroll made of parchment knowing that some of the world’s greatest treasures are written on parchment. This case the parchment is in the form of a scroll, talk about old school. We are talking about Torah, of course. The Torah was the first place where set into the laws of the land there were limits placed on the King and Queens, the rulers were commanded not to become wealthy as they were to write their own Torah scroll, read it daily, and live by it at all times. Religion, Orthodox Religion is the norm in Israel and no one sees that as disruptive or backwards thinking, and these are the people who are in control, or at least sharing control allowing the people their say. The Jewish faith is at the core of many things in Israel and Israel may need to teach these old lessons once more to a world which is currently rapidly spinning out of control. Israel may actually be on the correct path.

The Fascist Playbook is Being Repeated Now

 

There is a reason why the modern education system no longer teaches Civics or History and the classes they teach in these areas are tainted and deceitful. They decry the Founding Father of the United States as slave-owning white-privileged oppressive supremacists. They teach that the Constitution is not specific in its wording and must be interpreted for the modern age because they could not have imagined telephones and cars and jet planes and modernity. The Constitution is outdated and must be replaced with modern ideas. These ideas are the liberal playbook with the rules which are now ruling many universities. Ask students in many universities about the First Amendment and its guarantee of freedom of speech and you will hear that free speech is outdated and needs to be limited as much speech needs to be banned as some thoughts need to be silenced and no longer permitted. As the indoctrination system continues to replace education the rest of the Constitutional rights stipulated in the Bill of Rights will be eroded until they will disappear totally from the codes within the American culture. But the reasons go deeper as without knowledge about the true history and the processes used by previous totalitarian takeovers, it allows the opening for it to be repeated yet again. George Santayana was dead on correct when he stated that, “Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

 

What history is the United States heading towards at a breakneck speed has struck many places before throughout human history. The technique has been utilized repeatedly and the first signs are already appearing. The initial step is for small bands of the party which is seeking permanent power to foment distrust and the legitimacy of the governing system. They claim that elections are tainted and that the current office holders fixed or tampered with the election often by using outside assistance from a perceived enemy power. This is followed by violent demonstrations which begin as localized often in areas controlled by those seeking to realize permanent power. The protests continue and soon become an expected and almost routine occurrence mostly in the largest cities. The authorities tend to allow the protests and allow some degree of violence which unfortunately is permitted. The criticism of the leader, the president, monarch, prime minister, any elected or appointed leader simply to denigrate respect for the ruling government is one of the main tactics utilized for overturning a government. Claims will be continued that the elections were rigged and there will be calls for a new election or simply the placing of a new appointed leader. The protests will grow and the attacks on the government will grow more and more pointed in the media controlled by the subversive elements. They will demand their rights while silencing all opposition. Much of the original demonstrations and violence will emanate from the Universities where the administrators and professors will be seen to stoke the emotions and lead the students to believing they are rescuing the nation from interlopers. This will continue to grow and soon the violence will become far more disruptive. This is when the escalation will become serious and those who have been planning the coup will start the real disruptive behavior even to the point of disrupting life for regular people who have nothing to do with the protests or the government and are just trying to get on with their lives.

The protests get to the point where people can no longer live their lives or the government needs to crack down and this brings forth accusations that the government is oppressing the people and must be replaced. There will be increasing attempts at disruption and the masses of protesters will become more difficult and violent sending raiding parties armed to fight when a new group will arise from the opposition of the ruling party promising they can end the rioting and demonstrations if only they are granted their rightful place as leaders of the government. They propose a new governance where they are granted extrajudicial powers and absolute power. These will be the leaders of the protests but will have remained removed from the protests and far from the violence. The people will be desperate and will demand new elections and will give this interloper and their core group the powers they demand. They will then turn on their own protesters, especially the rioters as they are considered expendable and actually now a danger to their maintaining power. They will send shock troops out and those who lead the rioting will be killed as will many of their followers and once this purge has been completed there is a new government and elections are a thing of the past. The new government is all about order and ridding the people of those who were truly responsible for the revolution which they saved the people from. The problem is it was their revolution from the start and it was executed just to give them power. This brought Generalissimo Francisco Franco to power, Benito Mussolini to power, Adolph Hitler to power and was how Lenin took power and Stalin after him. This has been the playbook of the fascists throughout history and it will be no different today because the youth they will use to take power never learned from the history they were never taught. The warning signs are all there but there are so few who will see them and those who will are those old people who are so stupid and from back then in the evil times and know nothing. That is how they will be excused and there is a distinct possibility that the older people will be rounded up and placed where they can be taken care of by the new government for their own safety.

 

There will be another casualty this time just as it has always been. The Communists despised these people. The Nazis despised these people. This has been the target for elimination by every totalitarian system since Rome. These people have survived despite near constant persecution and have gained a strong ally in the past few centuries. The originating principles came from Judaism and were preached in early Christianity before Christianity was politicized. Rome took Christianity and for almost fifteen-hundred years the Church was used as a weapon against the people. The Church lorded over the people often warring with Kings for power. The scientific revolution and industrial revolution brought new ideas of empowerment for the people initially out of England then Europe and finally making a permanent statement in the United States. Christianity reluctantly accepted a separation between the Church and political power. The unfortunate thing and the central problem is there are still those who seek ultimate and complete power and wish to subjugate their fellow people. Those seeking such power believe they know what is right and what is wrong and only they have the true understanding and thus must be placed over the rest of humanity. They also cannot allow for the Judeo-Christian ethos which believes in the nobleness of humanity and that people should have the power over their own lives to survive as it poses a direct threat to their power. This is the reason they do not believe in freedom of speech and they will not allow for religion as it is understood in the developed world because religion believes and promotes the moral character with respect for the other and for the rights of all. The fascist only believe in their superiority and their all-knowing ideas of what constitutes a perfect society. For them a perfect society is relegated to a strict set of rules which are absolutes and are enforced almost with a viciousness which is highly oppressive. Once these people take power the media is totally censored and controlled, all information comes directly from a central source and the people are watched with suspicion that they will turn at a moment’s opportunity. The reality is that eventually the people will turn and freedom will return, just not for at least two or three generations.

 

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

 

Above is what is known as the “Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance” which was originated by Scottish historian Alexander Tytler who studied the rise and fall of freedom and its subsequent loss. Reading the cycle from any one point the sequence appears to make some sense. The problem is many people feel that this cycle can be broken and that in a modern society there is no way that freedom can be erased as the people would never stand for such. They would never vote in any people who promised to subjugate them. They are correct but what if the situation calls for the return of social order and a return to what they are promised is life as they knew it. The situation is as described above where societal order has been completely disrupted by subversive forces similarly to what is occurring on college campuses and certain large cities but in a far more generalized and systemized equation of violence. Then some respected political figure which the people recognize and trust, say former President Clinton or former President Obama or even someone like “name your favorite progressive political figure” takes the lead enacting Marshal Law and that is the end of freedom. Even if this candidate does not intend to imperil the freedoms of the people, there will be one who follows along soon thereafter who will subjugate the public. This might even come about through assassinating the initial public figure who really did intend to return the governance to the Constitution or whatever system was temporarily interrupted while public order was restored. The subsequent capture and very public move towards a trial will have the media blaming those who were the supporters of the former leader who was replaced to bring order. Of course the actual assassin was from the side of those taking power and never planning on returning the power to the people and they will have a second assassin who will murder the person who murdered their initial ruler. This will remove any possibility of questions being sought and answered and the truth coming out revealing the entire façade being used to steal the governance and oppress the people. This second assassin will also be suicidal and will kill themselves thus tying up all the loose ends and should they not commit suicide, well, they could always die in a shootout when they were being captured. That scenario can come about whether they are shooting or not as who is going to doubt the police when the media fully backs their version of events. Watch events and be afraid. Is the loss of freedom inevitable? We cannot truthfully answer that but history shows a very poor track record. Remember that Rome was initially a republic where the citizens voted and after the assassination of Caesar it all came to an abrupt halt and every following leader declared themselves to be Caesar, interesting. After World War I Germany was initially ruled by the Wiemar Republic, that is before it fell to the Nazis in much the steps reviewed above. To fully understand the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance one must study history, lots of history, just as had Alexander Tytler. We never said it would be fun. Still, it will not hopefully happen soon unless the people become even more complacent and apathetic. After all, not everyone is dependent, but that is not actually required and the United States has its full share of bread and circuses, like Super Bowl anyone?

It’s In, Trump’s Failed Presidency

 

The headlines almost uniformly report the Trump Presidency was a failure. Trump was a complete and total disaster and everything he touched turned to liberal progressive pain and disgust. The media all over has it figured and the problem is that Trump cannot do anything right. Or maybe it is he does everything right when to succeed everybody knows you have to be on the left, not just right. You see left is good, left is correct and right is just plain wrong. And whatever you do, do not come forward and say that Trump has not even been sworn in yet because that doesn’t matter, he’s a failure and nothing you or he can do will change that.

 

What if the economy takes off and both the markets, numbers of people employed and all other indicators fly high after he takes office? Well, obviously you must have missed the eight years of dedications and making the hard choices by President Obama which are finally paying off. Trump is simply reaping the rewards of all of President Obama’s brilliant handling of the economy. Had President Obama been permitted a third term or Hillary Clinton been elected, then they would have gained and gleaned all the glory but instead it is falling undeservedly on Donald Trump. No, there is little hope that the average American will understand these things as they are just so complex. This is how it always happens that a Democrat’s hard work is then claimed by their Republican successor when the difficult work was done before the Republican came into office. Reagan gained acclaim for all the work done by Jimmy Carter. It was President Carter’s examples of selflessness and showing that even a Capitalist can have a heart which wore down the USSR and not that military wastefulness of Reagan who claimed to have spent the Soviets into ruin. Have you ever heard anything so preposterous? They were brought low by love and caring of President Carter and not the brashness and impolite efforts of that brutish Reagan and everybody who knows anything knows that. Reagan also took credit for the economy made possible by President Carter’s fiscal policies. Like President Obama, President Carter inherited an economy teetering on the edge of oblivion and saved the United States from guaranteed ruination but does he ever get the credit for that miracle, no. Instead the historians have been pulled in by Reagan’s allure and simple charm. Simple charm, it was more like simpleton charlatan than simple charm. What they will not claim despite all the honest evidence.

 

Everybody who understands reality knows the truth and knows that the truth is often sacrificed because it is simpler to cheer and root for the new kid than recognize the dedication and hard work done by the predecessor who actually set the stage for the triumphant simpleton who lucked into the glories made possible by leftist policies carried out by the hard work of the previous administration. One great example has been Carrier deciding to keep a fair number of jobs and production in the United States rather than move it to Mexico. We understand that you heard it was because of efforts by Trump and Pence which arranged for these jobs to be kept in the United States rather than transferred to Mexico. Well, they have tried to steal the glory but remember who is in the White House and finally should be receiving the credits he is due. President Obama saved those jobs with his well-crafted policies designed to retain jobs in the United States finally paying dividends, but as is the Republican way, they stole the glory and thunder of a Democrat administration’s accomplishments. Their blatant disregard for facts is just appalling.

 

What will they claim next, that they are able to rebuild the military? The sole reason they are able to rebuild anything concerning the military has been due to the marshalling of efforts and the cutting of numerous wasteful military projects in favor of a more integrated military with a shared ability with their European counterparts. The Obama Administration had streamlined the military and its prolific spending and made it into a lean, green fighting machine and now Trump thinks he can simple ride in on his white steed and claim all the glory. Well, not if the media has anything to say about this glory hound who is never there for the hard work but first in line when taking credit is due. It has already been made clear that Donald Trump has no shame and will bathe himself in the glories only made possible by the hard and dedicated work of his predecessor who will receive no credit for his efforts. Donald Trump, just like Ronald Reagan, will be front and center to claim the great leaps and gains of the American economy which is simply responding to the inevitable wondrous gains in leaps and bounds due to what President Obama managed to accomplish despite a do nothing Congress and all the chips down against his success. While nothing could prevent the great recovery put in place by the policies of President Obama, heaven knows that Trump tried to ruin everything with his fiscal policies. It was simply more in place thanks to President Obama and his dedication setting the stage for a recovery which unfortunately for President Obama will come too little too late. Still, the historians will likely get everything sorted out and President Obama will rise meteorically and rival any President before and likely after him in what he accomplished.

 

Donald Trump

 

How else can the media report the greatness and the legacy which rightfully belongs to President Obama but will be stolen by his Republican successor. It is such an old trend where President Eisenhower inherited the result of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and continued by Harry Truman. We saw it with Ronald Reagan, a man who knew how to milk a scene from his days in Hollywood. Now we sit prepared to hear how Donald Trump will be appointing a man responsible for this betrayal as the bird awaits orders for the glamour shots to be taken. It was made all the more obvious as the President Elect stole the wonder which rightfully belonged to the team of the Obama Presidency. Be prepared for stories such as these as Trump’s policy reversals and smart management start to take hold. The one thing the media will have gotten correct is that President Obama may never get the credit he deserves for rescuing America from ruin.

 

The preceding was an exercise in sarcasm though this may be exactly what we are bound to hear for the next decade and possibly longer. We on the conservative end of the political spectrum can expect to read article after article in the likes of the New York Times just like what is written above except they will be serious as a heart attack. Their famous Pulitzer Prize winning writers will return and do their best to eviscerate Trump, his Cabinet choices and anything they have a hand in creating. Finally, the newsprint accusations will flirt with the truth just enough to make their condemnations sound credible. What Americans can do is ignore the media and take their news from their own lives and those of their friends, neighbors and yes, even liberals. Just nod knowingly as they explain how everything Trump accomplishes was actually due to President Obama who did all the heavy lifting. We know that there will be need for people capable of herculean abilities if the United States is to be rescued and placed back on the rails. All the way along the Progressives will be digging up the tracks and dynamiting the bridges in attempts to force Trump failures but even after such subterfuge The Donald will prevail. What will happen is that as long as Trump is in office, and presumably Pence after Trump leaves office, there will be sniping and biting at the ankles in attempts to destabilize the economy as well as governance in order to blame Trump. The secret to preventing such is to elect like-minded people to serve with the next Congress making Trump’s task that much easier. But do know the mainstream media will stop at nothing to undercut your efforts and those of Donald Trump. Do not fret as The Donald is a big boy and has taken down his share of bullies and these paper tigers of the media have absolutely no clue what is coming their way. Pop some popcorn and sit back after January 20, 2017 and prepare for the greatest show on Earth, and should we send the right thinking candidates to Congress for the next six years, three elections, then it just may be possible to wrest the United States from the death-grip of the looney left and put America on the tracks of being great again.
