Experts say Trump could roil the intelligence community by asking his hand-picked panel to draft reports, for example, on alleged surveillance abuses against his 2016 campaign associates…

On Not so civil wars…

November 6, 2018

This is

Dr. Jack Minzey on Civil War in U.S. Today ….
Jack passed away Sunday, 8 April 2018.
Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein.
This is from the last of his works: Civil War
How do civil wars happen?
Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country.
When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here.

What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections. That’s a civil war.
There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election
When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship .

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has ‘discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.

The Constitution has something to say about that.

Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.

Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can’t serve in if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren’t in the club with him.

Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down. That’s not a free country.

It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did.

Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

Direct Democracy, Mob Rule, The Political Correctness of the day

October 24, 2018
Those are all pretty much the same thing, and here is commentary on that subject from a Facebook friend.

When you remove the mask, political correctness is simply fascism disguised as manners.

I want to start this article off by saying that I am NOT a Republican or a Democrat. I am independent in every way possible. I usually don’t talk write about politics, but the election in the U.S. is two weeks from today and this year, there is a clear choice presented to the American people. And it is too important for me to sit quietly by and simply watch what happens.

We have domestic terrorists running around claiming to be anti-fascist, who are actually THE fascists. They call themselves ANTIFA. They are nothing more than domestic terrorists and they have been accepted and promoted by the Democrat Party. These people are becoming the equivalent of Hitler’s Brown Shirts, who attacked those who they did not agree with, shouted down anyone from the other party who was trying to speak, and terrorized people in an attempt to get them to vote for the Nazi Party.

In fact, I see many semblances between today’s Democrat Party and the Nazi Party of the 1930’s. The Democrat politicians are encouraging their followers to harass Republicans in restaurants, in stores, in elevators, anywhere they find them. They refuse to denounce the domestic terrorists called ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. They are perfectly fine with a mass invasion of illegal immigrants into our country. They actively make racist comments about white people and especially white men. They want to raise your taxes and have more control over your life, what you say, what you can’t say, and what you can or can’t own.

Is THIS really the kind of people you want running our country? Do you really want racist, anti-American politicians who will lie, cheat or steal, to regain power for their party? Do you really want politicians running our country who refuse to admit that MS-13 are bad people or who think it is okay to terrorize people who disagree with them?

Hillary Clinton just stated that, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for…when we win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”

That moronic politician from CA, Maxine Waters, stated, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up…and if you see anybody from that Cabinet (Republicans) in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Ralm Emanuel told Democrats that, “When they go low, we kick ’em,” Holder told his audience to applaud. “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”

The new Democrat Party believes in guilty until PROVEN INNOCENT, not innocent until proven guilty. They do not believe in free speech, unless it is speech that THEY agree with. They apparently have a deep-seated hatred of white men, and white people in general, but don’t think they are racist. They denounce capitalism, but their politicians are multi-millions. THESE PEOPLE ARE LIARS AND HYPOCRITES!

They are actively encouraging hatred and division in our country, while denouncing it. They say they want to get rid of firearms because of violence, but encourage their supporters to harass, kick, and get into the face of those who disagree with them. Then they refuse to denounce violent groups like ANTIFA who go out and assault those who see the world differently than they do.

I can give you example after example of Democrat politicians who are encouraging harassment, hatred, and violence. I gave you just a few above, but they are MANY, MANY MORE. These people hate our president. They hate Middle America and talk about those of us who live outside of the major cities as if we are all uneducated buffoons. They have no respect for you or your beliefs.

I had one idiotic so-called “martial arts Grandmaster” call and leave a nasty message on my phone, calling me a racist, and more, because I support the President of the United States. I had no problem with his political beliefs, but his praise for me turned to hatred when he found out I had a different beliefs than he did. THAT is the new Democrat Party in America today!

These people are nothing more than propagandists, something else that they have in common with the Nazi’s. They want to impeach a president that has done more for our country, in a shorter period of time, than any president since the Founding Fathers. Yes, I can prove that statement. Here is a list of President Donald Trump’s accomplishments in less than two years:

Folks, you have a clear choice this year. Vote to continue to make our country strong again, to make our country safer, more prosperous, and to maintain American values, by voting for those politicians who WILL SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT.

Or vote for a Democrat Party which has gone over the edge, who promotes violence, supports violent, domestic terrorists, open borders, open harassment of those who disagree with them, and who look up to Saul Alinsky as a role model.

Both the Clintons and Obama stated that they look up to Saul Alinsky as their mentor. If you have never read his book, Rules for Radicals, you don’t truly understand where the Democrat Party is coming from or how they think. Read it and it will open your eyes to how their leaders think and what they are willing to do to stay in power.

I don’t often write about politics, but I have children and grandchildren now, and this election is too important for me to be silent. For God sakes, vote for those politicians who will put a stop to the garbage that the new Democrat Party stands for! VOTE FOR THOSE WHO WILL SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT if you have any love for your country or intelligence at all!!

THAT is the only choice for clear-thinking Americans this during this election! Don’t listen to the media. They have turned into nothing more than propagandists. Do your own research for vote for WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR COUNTRY, not for one fraternity or the other. Vote to support the man who is helping our country, not trying to destroy it, and who is doing it almost single-handedly.

There has never been a president who has been attacked as much as President Trump and yet is strong enough to handle it, hit back, and continue to be successful and HAS DONE EXACTLY WHAT HE PROMISED TO DO. Please help him by only voting for those who will support him! Bohdi Sanders, Ph.D.

And about all of that political correctness…

September 18, 2018

It was interesting to say the least. A neighbors woman child that is attending college as a journalism major took issue with me over some previous posts here as well as on my Facebook page. In a nutshell here are my thoughts about this issue. No, I am not going to bother with citation because any first year English student could locate the various supporting information quite easily. In other words do your own research if you don’t like what I have to say.

First, I call this monstrosity “The Political Correctness of the day.” Why? Because it changes over time as societal populism morphs. It is indeed a form of “Direct Democracy.” That happens to be true whether it is based upon a time tested moral ideology, or upon a passing fad.

And you know what? That is just fine for those that want to live in such a place. Give up what ever freedom or liberty you care to so as to please the masses that surround you. Slavery was, and in some places, is still an accepted way of life. Interracial social mixing is abhorrent to some people. Partaking of wine or pork gets the same response in some communities. Fealty to ones nation is viewed as sin by some groups. The list goes on in a never ending litany…

I live in what is called a “Republic.” While I am not the sort of person that lives with my life or religion on my sleeve? I have respect for those that do so. Just so long as they do not attempt to force their way of life upon myself or anyone else. Where I live there is what is called “The Bill of Rights.” That set of Laws covers many things. All of which are related to personal freedom, and liberty. Guess what? Those liberties are not subject to the currant whims of the populism of the day. Not just for myself but for everyone.

Well? The girl child just could not accept that social premise. Imagine that… And she really became angry with me when I told her that her way of thinking was nothing more than an overt expression of Mob Rule…

Which? Like it or otherwise is exactly what The Political Correctness of the Day happens to be.

Perhaps that is just one reason why one of my nicknames is;


An American “Hero.”

Guest commentary…

Mexico is angry…

Wow! And make certain you read, at the bottom of this page, the part that says it will take 30 more seconds to read!   Please forward to all you know and ask them to forward to all they know.

 The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora , Mexico do not like it.  Can you believe the nerve of these people? It’s almost funny. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico!

The state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona’s new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico. It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off. 

A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona’s new ‘Employer Sanctions Law’ will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, – Arizona’s southern neighbor – made up of mostly small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.

 The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license.  The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government instead of ours.

“How can Arizona pass a law like this?” asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales. ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona” she said, speaking in Spanish. “Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their hometowns in Sonora without jobs,” she said “We are one family, socially and economically,” she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona.


The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico, and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico’s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.

Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona.  Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing!

*New Immigration Laws*

Be sure to read to the bottom or you will miss the message…

  1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
  2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language.
  3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
  4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
  5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
  6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or any other government assistance programs. Any who are a burden will be deported.
  7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
  8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
  9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
  10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

Too strict? The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO!  If it’s good for American’s to obey Mexican laws, then it’s good vice versa!!!

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. An idea whose time has come: Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come. Have each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have read the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

You are one of my 20.  If you don’t have twenty, pass it on to whatever number you can!

“The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

Three guesses who wrote this!

Some things just never change!

Guest Commentary; From the one and only…

July 17, 2018

Texas Fred as he is known was one of the finest bloggers that ever existed. This is from him, and, as always he just makes a lot of good old fashioned sense. Texas style, and this ex patriot Californian that was born and bred on Camp Pendleton couldn’t agree more!

A political commentary from me in the old TexasFred Blog style of writing.

When did the Russians interfere with American Elections? In
Who was the U.S. President? Barack Hussein Obama
Who was head of the CIA? John Brennan
Who was the National Intelligence Director? James Clapper
Who was the U.S. Attorney General? Loretta Lynch
Who was head of the FBI? Robert Mueller and then James
Who was the Democratic opponent in 2016? Hillary Rodham

It’s now 2018 and ALL of the above are blaming President Donald J. Trump for *Russian interference*, calling him a traitor, incompetent and myriad other names, accusing him of malfeasance because of his affair, long before he was even a candidate, with one Stormy Daniels.

Think about this; “I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” Trump said during a joint news conference after he spent about two hours in a room alone with Putin and 2 translators.

The POTUS may have great confidence in *some* of his intelligence people now but quite honestly, I can’t begin to imagine the total LACK of confidence he would have had walking into the White House on the 1st day with the above named CLOWNS in charge of U.S. Intel, or having been just recently in charge of U.S. Intel.

Many people are criticizing Pres. Trump for his meeting with Putin, saying that he, Trump, wasn’t forceful enough, with one opinion writer going so far as to say “Putin ate Trumps lunch”.

I don’t know what the American media and the Democratic Party wants, they have accused Pres. Trump of looking to start WW III and when he enters into honest negations in an effort to protect this nation FROM war, he is called a traitor, or worse.

My friends; we hear about an oath that many of us took to defend this nation from ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic, the Liberal, Socialist, Communist Democrats and their minions ARE that domestic enemy.

For those still stuck in the Golden State? Please do your civic duty, and if it is BROWN, or anything like him in any form or fashion, FLUSH IT DOWN!


“History is written by the victors.”

July 12, 2018

I started reading this at Yahoo, and could not help but to remember the things that I had been taught in school. Not simply the historical items but also the ethical implications on a historical level (yes, it is “a” not “an” check your MLA!)

Much of this I grew up seeing, if not actually participating in. As well as seeing the consequences of such actions. That said? This huge indictment of the United States is an empirical example of Historical Fallacy that also left out some of the truly egregious examples of our history.  Little mention was given to what went on with native Americans, both good and evil. Not a whisper about the slaughter of my ancestors, and other incidents that led to The War of Northern Aggression such as selective taxation. The list goes on…

And so, whether we like it or not it is indeed a truism that “History is written by the Victors,” complete with warts and all…

Let us never forget the utter international embarrassment that was the obama either.

Give them an inch, and they will take a mile!

Regarding ATF’s Proposed Rule on the “Bump-Stock Type Device”
[Docket No. 2017R–22; AG Order No. 4132– 2018]

Copy and paste into the ATF comment page: 

I am opposed to any regulation on bump stocks.

These proposed regulations would declare a “bump stock” to be a machinegun because it allows the gun to fire more than one shot “by a single PULL of the trigger” — that is, by a single volitional function of the finger.

But federal law, at 26 U.S.C. 5845(b), defines a part as a “machinegun” ONLY if it is designed solely and exclusively to allow the gun to “fire more than one shot … by a single FUNCTION of the trigger.”

To state the obvious, a finger is not the same thing as a trigger. And, while a bump stock is in operation, the trigger functions separately every time a round is discharged.

So these regulations are proposing a radical change — as they effectively define a gun as a machinegun even if the trigger resets for every round that is fired, so long as the finger only pulls the trigger once.

While bump stock devices will now be treated as machineguns under these regulations, they also raise serious questions in regard to AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles — as they are now on the brink of being designated as machineguns by the next anti-gun administration.

In the past, one had to fundamentally change the firing mechanism of a semi-automatic firearm to convert it into a fully automatic firearm.

But now according to these regulations, a bump stock is a machinegun — and it can “readily restore” a semi-auto into a machinegun, simply because the gun owner can effectively fire the weapon continuously with a “single pull” of the trigger. This would invoke the statutory definition for a rifle, which is classified as a machinegun (26 USC 5845(b)).

It won’t matter that a gun which is being bump fired has not been fundamentally altered.  AR-15s will be on the brink of extinction once these regulations go into force.

These regulations dismiss Second Amendment protections, by appealing to the Heller court decision. But the Constitution trumps the Supreme Court — so when the Second Amendment says that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed,” any limitation of the right for law-abiding citizens should be treated as unconstitutional.
