Aftermath

The political response of the Democrats to the events of this past week – the shootings and murder of police officers in Dallas and other states – was predictable as ever.  It’s not about the perpetrators that attacked the officers, it’s about the firearms used, and the need for more gun control.

The Dallas gunman has been shown in his words and social media accounts that he was targeting white police officers for retribution for the killing of black suspects in Louisiana and Minnesota.  The Black Lives Matter crowd has been chanting for quite some time that police officers are to be killed to revenge those African-American suspects killed by police.

They got their wish – five officers at this time have lost their lives in Dallas while protecting Black Lives Matters protestors.  How ironic is that – these protestors are being protected by the same people they want to die?

I’m not going to go off on a rant about the gun control measures being proposed by the Democrats that would do nothing to prevent these tragedies from occurring.  I cannot keep stating that any measures they propose infringe upon the People’s right to bear arms (among other rights in the Constitution and Bill of Rights) and not sound like a scratched record.  It cannot be pointed out enough times that the media constantly gets it wrong in their reporting of these incidents.

Instead, think about this:

President Obama was elected partially on the promise that he would heal the final racial divides in this country.  Instead, his actions from the Cambridge professor incident to the various incidents in the country (Travon Martin, riots in Ferguson, and other police incidents involving the deaths of blacks) during his presidency has done nothing except to fan the flames and give rise to the Black Lives Matters group.

If Black Lives Matters were actually White Lives Matters, and promoted White lives over everyone else of a different color, it would be labeled a racist hate group much like the KKK.  But because it has the tacit approval of the Divider in Chief, the Democrat Party, and is a darling of the mainstream media’s social justice warriors, it gets a pass.

The social justice warriors in the media pick the incidents of where the police shoot and kill people of color, promoting these incidents as murders and hits.  They conveniently forget that these people are involved in illegal activities which include assault, rape, robbery, resisting arrest, and trying to kill police officers.  Ignoring the facts and inflaming the crowds to a frenzy, riots like Ferguson happen, and the threat of that coming to a street corner near you unless “justice” is served is a powerful message.

The leadership and presumptive Presidential Nominee of the Democratic Party has endorsed, in actions and in so many words, the thuggery of the Black Lives Matter movement as “peaceful protests” and as a way to address grievances (even if their remedies include vigilante justice).  This “approval” has now cost more officers their lives, and despite the events in Dallas, will continue to stoke the fires of racism and division.

Are these the people that we want to lead this country?  I think not.

And the media?  They are as complicit as the Democrats.  They promote an “open season on Blacks by the police” message when the facts are that Caucasians are more likely to be killed by police.  They also ignore that black on black killings are more common in cities like Chicago with strict gun control laws than in cities that promote responsible firearm ownership.  Finally, the media fails to report a 20-plus year decline in firearm violence, but states that America is awash in the blood of gun violence.  Facts, it appears, are inconvenient truths that contradict the message that the Progressive Liberals wish to feed the unwashed masses.

Are these the people that we want to report the events of the day?  Again, I think not.

Both of these groups seek to control the American People with a single-mindedness that is frightening.  They are doing this by creating chaos and confusion with division that would make Saul Alinsky proud.  Their end game is to gut the Constitution and the Bill of Rights starting with the Second Amendment with the First Amendment close behind.  This will be the end of the United States as we know it if it is allowed to continue unchallenged.

“At what point do we stop accepting what this government decides is constitutional? How much do we have to concede before we act? When do we decide where our red line is and who is going to enforce it?” – Jenn Jaques

Rome fell because of the rot that pervaded its government from the inside out.  We have seen one of the candidates for President that is either too corrupt to lead, or too incompetent to trust with the secrets of the United States.  We don’t have much of a choice with the Republican candidate, but voting for any other third party will land the Democrats in the White House, and will accelerate the decline of this nation.

Be well, my friends.

Thoughts for the Week

Here are some thoughts for the upcoming week…

Republican Presidential candidate Governor John Kasich is a RINO.  He  has been anti-gun until 2015 (that’s when the NRA changed his grade from a “F” to an “A”), thinks that the Iran nuclear deal is a good one,  is soft on immigration, and supports Obama’s nomination to the Supreme Court.  Like all politicians, he says what we want to hear, but his past has been more Liberal than Conservative. He needs to give up his campaign and not play spoiler.

Lives Do Matter

Let’s get started with a few thoughts and pictures:

I am not a racist.  I do not believe that any one race is superior to another.  I also don’t care what race, sex, gender or religion you are; no one deserves to be discriminated against.  A person also does not deserve any special privileges depending on what race, gender, sexual preference, or religion they may be.  I also do not believe that anyone should enjoy special “privileges” in getting a leg up on any other race or group to equalize a perceived “social injustice.” – Tom Roland, “What Lives Matter?”

The political agenda of this Administration has been one of division, not unity.  The election of Barack Obama to this nation’s highest office with the expectation of uniting this country from a racial standpoint has been a woeful disappointment.

Every time that there has been an incident of where a white (or white-Hispanic) person or police officer has killed a black person (often while committing a criminal act), the President has rushed to defending said black person without allowing the investigation process to be completed, often indirectly blaming the police officer.  Now when a police officer has been killed (eight within the past week alone), the President has said NOTHING!  When a white person has been killed by a black person or illegal immigrant, the President has also said NOTHING!  When blacks kill blacks in an almost daily occurrence in our large cities like Chicago and Detroit, the President says NOTHING!  Worse, when riots and protests erupt demanding the prosecution and conviction of said police officers or white people, the President says NOTHING!

The result is that the police have been withdrawing from putting themselves on the line.  In cities like Baltimore and Ferguson, crime is up and arrests are down.  Why should police officers put themselves in potentially dangerous situations that could require them to defend themselves?  Let’s remember something:

The Black Lives Matter crowd and Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam have called for a war against police and white people.  We have seen what appear to be executions of various police officers, and black against white crimes have increased.  What does the President have to say about these obviously racially motivated statements and actions?  NOTHING!!

We do not have a leader in the White House.  This has been proven in both domestic and international issues.  We have a pretender, a person who believes his own hype and ego, and is only in the perks of the office & what havoc he can inflict upon the country. 

America, we chose poorly…

Liberalism’s Dirty Secrets

The following was forwarded to me by my wife who found it in a comment on her Facebook feed.  I’ve thought about the following for sometime, but have never been able to write this down as clearly as this person did.

I see Obama today, saying there is serious racism across the country. Does anyone think there will ever be total racial harmony in this current mad house world? In my opinion, due to many factors,…there will never be racial harmony along our current path.

A huge number of people are kept, or more accurately- trapped in a permanent underclass I’ll call the impoverished. The dirty little secret here is that this is the way the power drunk liberals in our government want it. A huge amount of the blame for racist attitudes by persons of all colors is the result of poverty caused by decades of liberal social policy and the existence of their piddling entitlement handouts.

Liberals, Democrats and progressives…socialists, communists, Marxists… (call them what ever) have duped a large segment of society into governmental dependency just to win the vote.

Look at the Obama government for a current example. Spending on entitlements has exploded under their regime. 54 million are on food stamps or I should say EBT food entitlements.

Entitlement piled on entitlement. More than ever in our history. Employment is at a 10 month low as of yesterday. The so called economic recovery is the slowest in history, we are sinking under a mountain of federal debt with our government borrowing from foreign creditors more than half of what they spend. A Gross Domestic Product stagnant at a sickly 2.5% quarter after quarter.

Then as if its a huge priority, Obama with his pen and phone takes the unprecedented and unconstitutional action of rewriting immigration law from his administrative desk at the White House. This after he is on video tape saying over twenty times that “I have no power to do it”. Yet, he aims to legitimize over 5 million illegal border crossers and hook them into the permanent, governmentally dependent underclass of democrat voters their party has been cultivating since Lynden Johnson started the “War on Poverty – Great Society” scheme over 50 years ago.

Poverty brings out the darkest emotions of the human animal. Emotions of anger, greed, material jealousy and hate. These powerful emotions are the leading cause of crime in all it’s ugly forms of illegal behavior like drug trafficking, robbery, violence and homicides. This is a catalyst for racial division. Look at the fact that black Americans face unemployment and poverty at much higher rates than whites.

Liberals wring their hands and toss out band aid fixes like more gun control, more little perks and entitlements, Obama phones, banning bullets, harassing the police with threats of human rights law suits for arresting criminals and doing their job. They throw more and more money at it but does it ever improve? No. They lament the high rate of black incarceration.

Is there any wonder why young black men are filling up our prisons? Look what the liberal entitlement mindset has done to the future of young black men in our inner cities? Poverty, the destruction of black family structure, drugs, gangs, crime, black on black murder at unprecedented rates, dropping out of school and heading straight to prison.

Then they are well and truly screwed. More anger, more misbehavior, back to prison, less respect by their fellow citizens, more discrimination. A vicious cycle.

This is where liberal policy like Obama and his minions embrace every day has brought us in 2015.

It is the system of governmental entrapment into this permanent underclass that drives much of the misery, racial social and societal decay and crime in our country. People naturally want what they feel others have and they don’t.

The problem is not the police. The problem of racism in America is due to liberals in the democrat party making people slightly comfortable at a rank level of poverty in order to hook them on handouts, all to gain their vote. Its all about the vote. The Democrat vote.

Government is the problem here. Liberal Democrat rule, playing these people like addicts looking for their next fix but in this case, their next government check. Liberalism is not the fix, it is in fact the cause.

The only way out of this is a booming economy, job prospects for all, financial reward through hard work, education for the uneducated. Jobs, jobs and more jobs which a healthy capitalist lightly regulated free market will bring. We need to get liberal government off the back of the businessman.

We need to eliminate the permanent underclass, not make more of them. Lift up everyone so they can attain the American dream of success, and only a strong conservative government that embraces a strong free market economy with a fair system of taxation, balanced budgets and an end to deficit spending can do that.

Liberalism will never do that as it depends on growing (Obama’s amnesty proposal for example) the numbers of poor people and then demanding their votes for their so called liberal “friends” in order to continue the handouts.

Look at any communist or socialist country and tell me you would rather live there than in a successful, bountiful, economically stable country such as ours could be again soon were it not for power sucking elitist liberalism and democrat party rule.

We need to bring this country back to success by voting these power hungry self aggrandizing creeps out at every election. We did well in the last election. We must win the presidency in 2016 and keep the houses of congress.

We need to try something new. Obama said he was that, but now even the most low information voter should be able to see he is nothing but a creepy elitist power mad liberal with the same old tired socialist ideals that has failed in countries all over the world. It’s never worked out to the good of the people. Only to the wealth, power and greed of the leaders.

Vote conservative if you want this to improve. It will only fester and decline will be the result of more liberalism. America is sick under the current president. It can’t last much longer.

One additional thought is this:  Liberal social policies and politics have stripped any thoughts of personal responsibilities from self sufficiency.  Strong families have been decimated by the promise of “easy money” from the government, and policies such as gun control have been used to further the dependency upon government for safety as well as sustenance.  The vicious circle keeps getting worse and worse, and the promotion of a “victimhood” mentality only reinforces the sense of injustice and entitlement.  When the promise of hope is taken away, what else is there?  Then to add to this misery is an additional illegal legalization of illegal immigrants.

Self-destructive insanity…

What Lives Do Matter?

I’m going to make something perfectly clear before I start on this post:

I am not a racist.  I do not believe that any one race is superior to another.  I also don’t care what race, sex, gender or religion you are; no one deserves to be discriminated against.  A person also does not deserve any special privileges depending on what race, gender, sexual preference, or religion they may be.  I also do not believe that anyone should enjoy special “privileges” in getting a leg up on any other race or group to equalize a perceived “social injustice.”

The continued protests of various groups over the holiday season sickens me.  The protests, violent or not, illustrate to me that these groups cherry pick the topics and facts to fit their agenda or agendas.  For instance:

“Black Lives Matter” – shouldn’t it be “All Lives Matter?”  Not to the groups with an agenda.  Instead of focusing on what the facts of the case are, it’s blame the cops for the death of a person committing a criminal act.  If black lives really do matter, shouldn’t the protests occur in neighborhoods where black on black crime (robberies, rapes, and murders) happen at an alarming rate far above the national average?  Furthermore, black on white crime is hardly mentioned in the news, while white on black crime is over-reported.

Let’s look at some actual crime statistics from the FBI:

Looks like black on white murder happens a little over twice as much as white on black murder.  Wouldn’t be able to tell that from the news reports…but it is mentioned in the following article from the Minneapolis StarTribune.

Today, after a civil-rights revolution (culminating in the election of the nation’s first African-American president) and $15 trillion spent on a feckless war on poverty (the official poverty rate hasn’t budged), more than 70 percent of black babies are born out of wedlock.

Consequently, unemployment and poverty remain far higher for blacks than for the rest of Americans. More disturbing, however, is the elephant in the living room that no one in the public eye seems interesting in addressing — appalling levels of crime committed by young African-American males.

One reason the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin affair garnered so much attention was the unusual nature of a white man (“white Hispanic” according to CNN) allegedly accosting a black teen. Sadly, when it comes to interracial crime, the reverse is anything but rare. To wit:

  • New York City law enforcement confirms that a 62-year-old man has died from injuries suffered at the hands of a suspect who declared he was “going to punch the first white man that I see.”
  • Two women, aged 24 and 32, are gang-raped by a dozen youths in a Delaware park known for such brazen crimes.
  • An 88-year-old veteran of World War II is brutally beaten to death with flashlights outside a Spokane, Wash., lodge by two men between 16 and 19 years of age.
  • Three wannabe gang members, two of whom were black, shoot down Australian college student Chris Lane “for the fun of it.”
  • St. Paul resident Ray Widstrand is nearly beaten to death via flash mob-style violence on the city’s chaotic East Side.
  • A 13-year-old boy is brutally beaten by three other teens on a Florida school bus, all captured on video.
  • Another 13-year-old is doused in gasoline and set on fire by perpetrators in Kansas City telling him, “You get what you deserve, white boy.”
  • 22-year-old Jody Patzner is murdered in cold blood by three teens for his bicycle in north Minneapolis — with hardly a mention of the suspects’ race by authorities or local media.

These acts of unspeakable violence perpetrated by black offenders on white victims rarely get much media attention, for fear of “subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion,” as one well-known newspaper editor recently put it.

Yet they are no statistical anomaly. While most violent crime is indeed intra-racial, 26.7 percent of homicides where the victim is a stranger are interracial. And in 2008, the offending rate for blacks (24.7 offenders per 100,000) was seven times higher than the rate for whites (3.4 offenders per 100,000), according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS).

Accounting for population differences, whites are simply far more likely to be victims of interracial crime than blacks. That, of course, didn’t stop Jesse Jackson from telling the Los Angeles Times at the height of the Zimmerman frenzy that “targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business.”

Folks, the nonsense must stop – there are those who profit or gain power by such division, tactics, fear-mongering, and rabblerousing.  The bottom line is that all lives matter, no matter what race or color you may be.  I leave you with this quote:

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” – Booker T. Washington
