Stopping Trump More Important than Serving the People

 

There is a revolution going on and it is being fought on every conceivable front. The media is using every type, traditional, social and new, and taking this fight to the highest pitches to screaming from hilltops to digging the dirt in the lowest of valleys. Character assassination, threats of violence, death threats, cursing people’s mothers, nothing is considered too low or out of bounds. Impeachment is the most repeated cry to the point that it has become the rallying cry of the revolution. Oh, let us not leave out that there has formed a group called; “The Revolution” and its members claim to be legion. There is also the Hillary Clinton front which includes the themes that the Russians influenced the election, Wikileaks is an evil group of plotters, former FBI Director Comey was out to get her, the media stabbed her in the back, the Democrat Party machinery was broke and broken, there were plots to have her lose, its everybody’s fault but Hillary’s because she is the ultimate victim. If this was a Shakespearean tragedy, she would have been the virginal damsel distressed and in the end sacrificed for no real reason other than her constant screeching drove everyone mad.

 

Believe it or not, all of these things and more are plotting the 2018 election campaign and we can predict its theme from the Democrat side. They are going to tout how Obamacare was forced to fail by President Trump because he refused to enforce the financial assistance to the insurance companies knowing it would crash the entire system. The new solution is more government and a single payer plan backed entirely by the government driving many insurance companies into insolvency, which will be Trump’s fault. Then the claim will show how when President Obama was in office and the Democrats controlled Congress they accomplished so many things and now the Republicans are ignoring the people and have a do nothing Congress. This is true but it is due to disruptions of the system to the point that no subject can be brought to the floor as all the time is consumed trying to discredit Trump. It is working. The Democrat aim is to take the House of Representatives such that they can bring Articles of Impeachment against President Trump and perhaps also Attorney General Sessions along with whatever other Cabinet Secretaries they can invent some charge. Then if Trump appears to be on his way to a second term which the Democrats cannot prevent, they will aim for reaching a large enough majority that with a few Republicans, such as John McCain, to be able to find President Trump guilty of the Impeachment charges and thus removed from office. Once they have accomplished this, the Democrats will start initiating their agenda always with the threat of Impeachment looming in the background to intimidate newly installed President Pence while the Senate refuses to approve any of his attempted appointments for the new Vice President. Do not fear, as soon as Pence stops playing ball, the Congress will impeach him as well and as the next in line will be the Speaker of the House, as there will be no Vice President, then we may end up with President Pelosi or worse, President Keith Ellison. Forget the Founding Fathers; we would have a new founding with the Founding Imams.

Should we have a President Ellison the world can expect the policies of Barack Obama back on the front burners and supersized. Israel will become the red-haired, freckled stepchild left out on the stoop in the middle of an Alaskan winter. Socialism modeled after Sharia will be the position of the Congress fully backing everything a President Ellison desires. The United States will never hold another election and the Congress will become simply an amen chorus or dissolved to be replaced by a body called some form of Deputy of the Revolution and the rest of the government will be transformed. A new tax will emerge called the Jiyza which will be somewhere around one third of earned money and be applied only to those who do not follow Islam. Islam will be initiated as the national religion of the United States of Allah, the new name which can still be referred to as the USA. Things will radically change and there will be no turning from this new path. The Supreme Court will be dissolved and the new Sharia Court of the United States of Allah will be installed with all Imams of prominence in the Islamist movement will be chosen by a board made up of the heads of CAIR and the Islamic Society of America (which will need to change its name somewhat). Soon thereafter all crosses and Jewish Star of David or Ten Commandments and other religious symbols will be torn off churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship. Only the symbols of Islam will be permitted in the public places. No public preaching or evangelical events or any form of proselytizing will be permitted except for those of Islam. Instead of Iran, the newest best friend of the USA will be likely Saudi Arabia where President Ellison will soon pressure the Royal Family to retire and be replaced by a Sunni Council of Imams who will rule in the Wahhabi strict form of Sunni Islam. This form of Islam will become the one practiced with favor from the government in the new USA and Egypt’s President Sisi will be brought under great pressure and when Egypt had another election, the winner of the Presidency and the vast majority of the Legislature will be members of the Muslim Brotherhood, guaranteed. President Sisi will then be charged with heresy and receive a death sentence. We cannot have a hero for those opposed to rally around. The Egyptian military will go through a cleansing, as would have the military of the USA. Such things will occur with unbelievable rapidity that any time to revolt to prevent this takeover will be next to impossible. The borders will be thrown open and there will be an immediate immigration of hundreds of thousands of Sunni Muslims until there are sufficient Jihadists to protect the Caliph of the USA.

 

All of this is theoretical and probably beyond the reason of any normalcy. This would not be normal by any stretch of the imagination, but we have very active imaginations. We will possibly see Keith Ellison as a candidate for President most likely in 2028 should President Trump prove to become successful and popular to such an extent that the Republicans appear probable winners of the 2024 election with Mike Pence as their candidate. After twelve years of Republican Presidents in the White House, the next election is all but guaranteed to elect a Democrat. We can expect Hillary to attempt another shot at the office of the President and another fail which will not be her fault but that of the Democrat Party which deserted her, as she would probably lose in the primaries. Furthermore, should President Trump be reelected we can expect the foaming at the mouth insanity to tamper down and slowly fade as what is the use when he will be out of office anyways as he will not be eligible to run again. Still, the Republicans, if they do not find real leadership, will probably be lucky if they can lower taxes, let alone replace Obamacare. We have not seen such ineptitude since Junior High School and the elected school president’s attempts to make the faculty not assign homework on the weekends. We all believed that the amount assigned increased after the student council’s attempt to enforce this motion which they passed all but unanimously, there was a couple of realists who abstained, if we remember correctly. How the Republicans are going to be able to face their constituents and claim they were unable to move on their agenda because the Democrats were mean to them is beyond our imagination, though the mainstream, gerrymandered Representatives in the House will return but the Senators will have a tough sell outside of Wyoming, Texas and Oklahoma.

 

The disruptions by the Democrat underground supporters are working to perfection and a virtual coup is in action and taking place. They are obstructing the government all but paralyzing both Houses of Congress preventing them from enacting even the most popular items of the Republican promises to the public. These are replacing or simply repealing most of Obamacare and lifting a fair share of the tax burden such that the economy thrives and jobs return in numbers. What is odd is the jobs are out there but most require a fair amount of skills and knowledge of technology or the use of technology. There is an Executive Order which will attempt to persuade companies to open up apprenticeships which would pay employees as they learn and once they become competent at their position they would then receive a bonus and a large increase in salary commensurate on their positions. Apprenticeships are not something new to President Trump though this variety would be demanding more than competing on a game show, this would be real training on the job and results would be demanded. One can only feel sorry or be looking forward to the introduction of the new college and university graduates to the real world and the job scene where there are certain expectations and time-outs and sensitivity corners do not exist, or at least we never ran into any but then we both worked in technical fields with computers and micro-electronics such as medical equipment, satellite communications equipment, office systems software, data base management and other specialties. We also needed to learn much of our skills on the job as technology completely transformed our positions. These changes would not have been possible without the necessary technological discoveries, inventions and supplemental systems all developed and married into the systems with which we worked. These items we operated as systems or repaired as units were all adapted for new uses for which they were not necessarily originally intended as our jobs attempted to keep at the fore of technology.

 

The Democrats will not be able to prevent this even if they block any legislation from consideration as President Trump can initiate such programs simply by making speeches and tweets about the advantages of these type of programs and how these apprentices will be trained tailor made for their positions and once they have the initial training they can then have their knowledge broadened by other programs run all but completely by the employers themselves. There is the possibility we will see university styled training centers where instead of paying to attend you are paid to attend and there will be a job waiting for you once you graduate. These schools will have programs which last one, two, three or possibly more but unlikely. We need to remember that the Army can train helicopter pilots and the Navy and Air Force can train jet fighter and other pilots within two years, so three years is even a longer time than most would ever need despite the probability that these trade schools will also offer some additional coursework to round out the students, sorry, apprentices. We can expect President Trump to go straight to the industries and companies where many of his ideas can be utilized successfully and will not require anything from Congress to implement once they have been brought onboard.

 

This is one way that President Trump can implement parts of his economic progress campaign. Still, much of what must be accomplished requires Congress. President Trump should start to take the initiative and regularly call the leadership of both parties and other times the Republican leadership or Democrat leadership, depending on who is required, and suggest parts of his programs be brought before the House and Senate and run through its paces and form a piece of legislation and pass it on to the White House for signing. Warn the members and leadership of the Congress that as President, Trump expects clean legislation which does not include any extemporaneous or additional attachments or riders and expressly will not accept additional spending on other items along with his legislation or he will edit the legislation, veto it and send it back for the expected revisions, period. President Trump needs to read Congress the riot act, as they are about as dysfunctional a group of supposed adults that has ever graced the face of this earth and are heading for a disaster at the polls for both parties. This could be done through just the leadership with them called to the White House for a meeting held in the Oval Office instead of some meeting room as usual as this will impress the message with more weight if only because the Oval Office is somewhat intimidating and is like the President’s nest.

 

The other means, which is more risky, would be to address a joint session of Congress with the Justices of the Supreme Court invited to listen and be present, and before a televised speech set out his agenda, announce the introduction of legislation the White House is delivering to Congress (turning and handing a tall stack of bound pieces of legislation such that there are numerous separate bound pieces and giving them to the Speaker and the Vice President to bring to their respective sides of Congress would be an impressive and unprecedented move) legislation the White House expects expedited and serious consideration sending clean legislation on these important and critical matters which are necessary if the nation is to remain viable. The President has proven he can stick to a message if it is his message and that can be written into any speech, you just need to meet with the President and then do as he has requested. Such a move could break the logjam in Congress and even more likely if the people respond to an appeal to tell their Congressional representatives, both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, that the people approve of what the President proposes. The President can apparently in an off-hand remark note how he is assured that those opposing this historic opportunity to right the Ship of State and get America working again will make themselves heard and receive glorious reporting supporting them in the media, but then caution Congress that there is the other side and its members are growing and will not forget who worked to build America and who were out there attempting to drag her asunder. With a great speech, better than his first Address to the joint session of Congress for the initial State of the Union Address, President Trump can become almost Reaganesque and accomplish exactly what he desired and is obviously required to do exactly as we stated, right the Ship of State and gets America working again.

 

The Revolution, as the combined forces countering any movement while the conservatives are in control and demanding that only the leftist most progressive movement will be tolerated, the people be damned, are calling themselves, has controlled the story so far in Washington D.C. It is time for other voices to be heard above the din of dissent. Washington has reached the end of this path and they face a crossroads with one direction being the Trump agenda or something resembling such and the other the continued din of dissent demanding with a dedicated drumbeat the dissolution of decency and a devotion to the duty of desolation which is their desire. Those are the two directions and the United States has been traveling along to the ditty of drudgery which sounds the din of dissent and the people deserve better. If those on the left, especially the extremists, have a better plan for America, place it before Congress, get it passed and give the President, the duly elected President even if you think the system is rigged, the chance to choose whether it can be made to work. President Trump will either sign it or veto it hopefully with reasons, even if they come in the form of Tweets. This war of words, and sometimes things substantive and capable of causing injury, has got to end and the people’s desired progress be made or at least attempted. Remember that what has been done by the left to impede the right will be available for the right to stop the left and this is a cycle that goes nowhere.

 

The people desire that things move along and they will get their desire one way or another, one retains the principles with which the nation was founded and built and the other ties that down replacing it with their desired form of governance which will permanently seat them in absolute power. We have studied history and have seen this power-play before and it always results in the same ending, the slaughter of the useful idiots once power has been secured and the formation of a secretive police force which enforces loyalty above all else. The end result is never pretty and should this become the future then abandoning ship as quickly as possible and while it is still legal is the advised reaction. The requirement to reach this state will take only one or two terms of the leftists holding both houses of the Congress and the Presidency. That second term will never really end, as the United States is a power like no other before her. Thusfar America has been good but democracies, even republics, only last so long and they always fail in the same manner, excessive government debt, excessive debt amongst the people (credit card and student loans are the two killers today), high unemployment, much discontent, deadlocked governance unable to bring the people forward, disconnected youth with no roots in history or knowledge of from where their government came, and a disloyal group which honestly believes that they and only they should be permitted the right to rule because they know, they really do know. Those grounded in history and knowledge of the past know what is coming and fear it with great trepidation and fear as they watch the potential threat to their beloved governance and know there is little which can be done to prevent the coming apocalypse. It was inevitable as soon as the nation was founded and it will come and destroy it all just as sure as the sun will rise in the east tomorrow and set in the west today. These are the tides of governance which were written for a warning which has never been heeded, will it be heeded this time, doubtful. The name for it is the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance (see below). It has an accompanying theory explained below.

 

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

 

A people will set for themselves the great challenge of self-rule and revolt against their governance having been filled with great faith in a better means of governing. They will take up courage and stride forth as a new nation based on the rights of the people and the right to ownership of the means of your own support and right to land protected by law. Freedom and liberty will rule and soon as infrastructure is available, there will be great wealth, an abundance. Abundance will lead some to avarice taking more and more but the abundance will soon appear as normal and the people will be contented to the point of blindness to what is occurring around them. The problems will start to become apparent but they will have their rightful share as did their parents and their parents back many generations all the way to that glorious revolution learned about in grade school and seldom mentioned afterwards, we wonder why that was left to be forgotten. Ah, who cares, I have my job and am busy with life, far too busy to be concerned with such things. This apathy opens the door for a dependent class to be born. General welfare becomes the new way of eradicating poverty and keeping the people complacent. Apathy is joined by and reinforced with a dependent class who now depend completely on government and thus are the tools of the corrupt. This leads to the overthrow and the return to an oppressive rule which nobody really knows or understands how it happened as it was so swift at the end, a whirlwind of events. The lost freedoms and liberties will not be seen again by any of the generation then alive as they will all serve in bondage to an elite few. This eventually will lead to an increase in faith in mankind and a desire to rule oneself. This faith to courage and courage to revolution and revolution to abundance and here we go again. Check history as it is full of such things from Caesar to Chairman Mao and Pol Pot, it is always the same grinding of the wheel, of the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance.

Holocaust Remembrance Day, the BBC, and Lessons Lost

 

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day the BBC show The Big Questions asked and debated the topic as follows, “Our one big question this morning: Is the time coming to lay the Holocaust to rest?” To many the answer is obvious; the problem is the obvious answer is rapidly approaching being evenly divided between the affirmative and the negative. It used to be that if one claimed that the Holocaust was a myth invented by the Jews to use to garnet sympathy or to bludgeon the world with a guilt trip, particularly Germany and the Europeans, was a view which relegated one as outside acceptable society throughout the world with some obvious exceptions. It was certainly not something even debated within Europe or Western society. That has changed to the point that a group of eighth-grade teachers in the Rialto Unified School District decided that asking their students to take a side on whether the Holocaust happened and back up their arguments with facts would be a good way to stretch their students’ creative skills and provide an avenue for them to develop effective debate skills in writing. In some Albany, New York schools, seventy-five tenth-grade English Class students of a teacher received an assignment with the description to write an essay proving that Jews are evil. The assignment read, “Your essay must be five paragraphs long, with an introduction, three body paragraphs containing your strongest arguments, and a conclusion. You do not have a choice in your position: you must argue that Jews are evil, and use solid rationale from government propaganda to convince me of your loyalty to the Third Reich!” So, perhaps the debate by the BBC is not as horrific as it initially appears.

 

The problem with even debating such a question is that with time others will take the BBC initiative one step further and eventually the Holocaust will join many of the other evils in the dustbin of forgotten memories. Hitler queried in second speech to his Wehrmacht commanders, “Who still talks nowadays of the extermination of the Armenians?” This question is one that many should have to answer before they attempt to relegate the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews and other undesirables into a similar category. It should be hoped by all people of compassion and good conscience that all such atrocities remain in human memory for the simple reason as for them to be reminders how dark and evil men’s hearts, minds and thus actions can turn when such things are allowed to be forgotten. The Armenian Genocide being forgotten despite its having occurred just before the onset of World War I and yet it was already a non-issue left from collective memory during World War II and thus did not serve as an early warning lesson against the evils which soon resulted. The Holocaust committed by the Nazis needs to actually be broadened and applied as a warning against easy solutions to societal problems as the Nazi Holocaust did not only murder millions of Jews, but also another six-million others who were considered threats to the government, impurities within the society and still others who were relegated as being too costly to remain within the societal structure.

 

Some of the earliest victims of what eventually led to the Holocaust were not the Jews as their inclusion took a series of dehumanizing steps before it became acceptable. The earliest victims of the whole idea of perfecting the human race were found throughout Western societies in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The mentally insane and deficient were initially simply sterilized so they would not have children who would by the very fact that one or both of their parents were mentally challenged or deficient be tainted human beings and too likely to be similarly afflicted. Margaret Sanger was amongst one of the early birth control advocate whose efforts led to the founding of the American Birth Control League which would later be renamed Planned Parenthood organization. Her intentions are often only partially revealed as much of her efforts are no longer acceptable and there are those who wish to prevent Ms. Sanger’s racial purification efforts to taint modern birth control and abortion rights efforts and lobbying. Her efforts including working with the growing eugenics movement which sought to purify and advance the human race through controlled breeding as one might breed cattle for healthier and many preferable results. This movement made some headway in the United States and Europe and was oft misused to sterilize those considered inferior, be they racially inferior, mentally challenged, those with physical birth defects, people who were outside norms lacking in height and an ever increasing number of other qualities simply regarded as inferior. The eugenics movement had progressed to the point of forced sterilizations where women who came to clinics or when giving birth were sterilized without their knowledge or consent.

 

These ideas were adopted by the Nazis and initially went no further than the eugenics had progressed in the United States and across Europe. Hitler was regarded as taking the proper and necessary steps to improve the human race and was initially lauded by the practitioners of eugenics in the United States. Eventually their support waned as Hitler went beyond the steps the eugenics progressives were comfortable with. Hitler took the theories of eugenics and married them to religious hatreds and persecutions which led to the extermination of six-million Jews and his use of eugenics generally led to the extermination of another five to six million humans determined to be unworthy of life. Those included homosexuals, the mentally challenged, Roma (Gypsies), Serbians and eventually those considered not to be purely Aryan race. The deaths of all of those innocents murdered including those who were simply included who were labelled enemies of the State as well as those included above are the reason the Holocaust must be remembered. The memory of the Holocaust murder of six-million Jews needs to be remembered for all-time as there are those who wish to repeat that undertaking by murdering the slightly more than six-million Jews living in Israel. Then there are others who use Israel as their reason to kill the Jews but actually their desire is to murder every Jew everywhere as is related in this video where New York Councilman David G. Greenfield who is the grandson of Holocaust survivors, gave an impassioned speech, noting that the anti-Semitism inherent in the virulent opposition to Israel at the session of the New York City Council commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance at which he spoke unmasking the real hatred and desires in the protest, the murder of every single Jew wherever they be found.

 

 

 

Remembering the Holocaust is more than simply the Jews who were murdered in mass numbers but the Jews are the consciences who are best able to continue the memory of those horrific times. The lesson of the Holocaust must also go further and also include the entire eugenics movement and any political movement which includes the ideas and ideals of eugenics and other concepts accepted by the progressives of the early twentieth century. Some of their concepts have begun to slowly edge their way back into society once again. Statistics reveal that there is near equality in the general New York City megalopolis between Black children born and those terminated in the womb by abortive techniques. The general acceptance of abortion in society is something the eugenics proponents would have applauded and supported with great enthusiasm. They would have encouraged women of what they considered lesser societal acceptance, otherwise expressed as those less wealthy, to have abortions as they saw wealth as proof of genetic superiority.

 

But the Holocaust was not the only modern murder by governments of those considered to be lesser human beings or even as human beings at all. In the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin committed a Holocaust of proportions were only exceeded by Hitler a little over a decade later. Over the period of 1932 and 1933 it is thought that seven-million Ukrainians were starved to death as the entirety of their produce was transferred to Moscow to feed the starving Russians who were considered to be more essential and true believers on the Soviet ideals and the Ukrainians were expendable. That is the famous words uttered by most mass murderers; they were one or more of the following, expendables, unbelievers or inferiors. There was the famine in China which resulted from Chairman Mao Zedong’s programs of the Great Leap Forward of 1958 to 1962 where inside China it has been estimated that the loss of life equaled from fifteen to forty-five million with the accepted standard places the totals between twenty-one to forty-three million deaths. The deaths inside China were only exceeded by the cover-up and deceitful history which denied the failures of the state.

 

There were other such government initiated mass deaths including when the Japanese Imperial Army entered the Chinese Capital City and committed the Rape of Nanking murdering half of the six-hundred-thousand people in six weeks, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge who orchestrated the Cambodian genocide, Bosnia-Herzegovina genocide of 1992 through 1995 which murdered at least two-hundred-thousands, Rwanda genocide where in a hundred days in 1994 up to 800,000 Tutsis were killed by Hutu militia using clubs and machetes killing as many as 10,000 each day and the wholesale slaughter of human beings by human beings all due to one group believing that their right to live outweighs others’ right to life for any reason be it religious, racial, political or any of the other contrivances of human kind meant to select one group as superior to all others. It is for these peoples as well and the hundreds of millions or probably billions upon billions who have been slaughtered through wars, enslavement, political purges, purifications, religious differences or any other distinction used by man throughout his history that we must remember the Holocaust if only because there are those who refuse to allow its memory to die. It is the calling to memory the six-million Jews and the rest of the twelve-million or more murdered in death camps, open fields, ghettos, in the back of trucks feeding the exhaust into the back compartment or simply shot where they stood who represent the entirety of the hostility of men against their fellow men that the Holocaust must echo throughout the rest of human history as a reminder such that we never again turn a deaf ear to the suffering and deaths of our fellow human beings. No, the time has not arrived to lay the Holocaust to rest, and the time we pray will never come to lay the Holocaust to rest. When mankind forgets the horrors of his past, he will live to repeat them and that has to end now!
