I’m not sure if what we see and hear from the Democrats right now is some clever new stratagem designed to amaze and mystify us if not deceive us outright, or might be the manifestation of the realities of life, that nobody wants to hear them anymore. Mass shootings and other social disasters are like iron filings to magnets for the media and the Democrats trying to find some plausible reason to impeach President Trump they can sell to voters.
Of course stories that don’t fulfill their narrative, like the mass murders going on daily in Chicago’s black neighborhoods, are ignored. Murders committed by illegal immigrants already kicked out of America multiple times, are excused for some socially touchy excuse.
This score of Democrats campaigning to replace Donald Trump, are like freaks in a midway sideshow. They tell blatant lies so often that they actually start believing them themselves. The Democrat party has no platform that Americans could rally around, but they have twenty different offerings, all sounding the same theme, ‘get rid of Trump, get rid of guns, abandon your religious beliefs and trust us,’ that not only confuses people, but bores ‘em to death as well. Think “tune out.” Speaking of religious beliefs, if Islam refuses to neutralize their beliefs, and Democrats refuse to chastise them, why then should Christians even consider neutralizing the teachings of Christ? Think about that one.
The Democrats pursuit of Trump is in disarray. What happened to “Mueller?” Two years of wasted money and time only to proved that Donald Trump was right all along. Only Jerry Nadler, the nimrod Democrat committee chairman, still believes there’s hope that the discredited Muller investigation, that treasonous exercise by the Deep States FBI, DoJ and the CIA to overthrow the President, might still contain some fragment of evidence the could sweep Trump from office. He’s delusional and there’s evidence enough to call the ‘white coat detail’ to escort him from his seat as chairman to the nut house. Adam Schiff has already turned cold on Mueller.
To be sure, the Democrat Party of JFK, no longer exists. Today’s party, however they want to call themselves, are dangerous because they’re now openly communist in their philosophies, fascist in their pronouncements and delusional in their beliefs. Americans are in no way Marxist oriented, except perhaps, for the recent graduates from our Marxist infested colleges filling our voter rolls. Where does the Left’s Shock Troops, the black clad Antifa’s, come from? Do they act for the Democrat like Hisbollah and Hamas does for Iran? Just asking!
Apart from lacking ideas, the Democrat Party has become the party of excuses because they have no solutions except first, they need to regain power so they can make society fair by leveling the playing field so that all citizens, rich and poor alike, can suffer equally like we see in Venezuela right now. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? The Democrats are in disarray and are intent on taking the rest of us down with them.
But enough of disarray, how about corruption? Once, it took old time politicians several years in congress to become corrupt and amass the wealth that made them millionaires in retirement. Radical activist AOC, a pole dancing socialist bar tender, inside of one year as a freshman congress-woman, has already skimmed off more than a million dollars in campaign donations to satisfy her lust for fine living. Well, reportedly, her Chief of Staff, author of the Green New Deal, actually did it but the buck stops with her. It does for everybody else.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (14Aug19)
While the Democrats are spinning out of control and the media is focused on Trump’s destruction, and fake news fills our TV sets, let’s take a look at a serious issue facing us.
Okay, America is a mess, politically, socially, and economically. Yes, the economy is humming along and jobs are widely available, but the money is phony. We are pawns in the hands of the world bankers and money manipulators, dependent on them for every dollar we think we earn and spend when every dollar really only represents our personal IOU note of debt to them! In effect we exist by debt and deficit spending, in other words, easy credit!
So, why has this practice of living off credit/debt become so common and why has it been allowed to continue? First, any changes to existing laws on spending limits, etc. requires a legislative process! But alas, politicians, being the parasites they are, benefit from the existing monetary system. Their greed and avarice is boundless. Why do you suppose that poor politicians retire wealthy after only a few years in service but a soldier doesn’t? Their well-paying conflict of interest schemes are solidly entrenched and once new politicians are compromised, they’re in forever like getting stuck on that ol’ Uncle Remus’s Tar Baby.
Several questions arise. How do we find honest politicians? Terms limits have been proposed but no politician worth his life, would sponsor such a bill or, if he did, it would never get an affirmative vote. That’s how democracy really works. We vote the crooks in ourselves and they vote for themselves.
Draining the Swamp, as Trump promised, was a harder task than expected. Trump promised to do it and he’s working on it but, anyone without Trump’s personal strength to resist the constant scurrilous political attacks against him, would have been gone weeks after their inauguration. Instead, because of Trump’s strength, the failed FBI coup using that swamp scoundrel, the honorable Robert Mueller as its spear point, actually exposed the worst of the decadent DC Swamp Creatures proving the Deep State does exist. They should be gone soon.
Trump’s arrival, a complete shock to the DC political system threatens their money machine so carefully crafted over the past decades; but, that money machine itself has changed. Today we are totally dependent on the commercial private bank system, including the Federal Reserve as every dollar in circulation is a borrowed one. What makes the system work is the continued printing of valueless fiat money and dispersing it rapidly into the system with low interest rates. There’s that tar baby again! Maybe we should invest in green ink.
When banks print debt money we prosper; when they don’t, we’ll see recession and hard times. Once we understand what’s in the empty cash bucket were looking into, it seems we’re in a hopeless position to the point of absurdity and yet, all the signs and warnings are out there for us to see, just garbled up and papered over to confuse us.
Does our system of economic debt portend America’s demise? Will it happen before Islam gets here and our wealth lies in the camels we own? Are we capable of repairing the situation or do we still rely on our elected, mostly corrupt politicians, to do the right thing?
Who has a vested interest in not wanting changes? Well, tax accountants for sure. Politicians of course, and special interest groups because it’s all about money. It’s their vested interest in wealth creation and It’s scandalous yet, we’re moved to do nothing. That’s how revolutions are born, out of politicians doing nothing.
Most folks look to the Fed to solve the credit/debt crisis. Can it? No! It would be impossible as the banksters created it. All this subprime lending and collateralized debt was a scam from the beginning. There is no added value anywhere. Everything in America is paper shuffling. It’s a paper bubble empire backed by paper fiat money. It has to eventually shake itself out or collapse, if not this time it will come later, during most of our lifetimes, i.e.: soon!
How do we get good people to send up there? How do we recruit, vet and elect intelligent, yet courageous people who are smart enough not to get entrapped in the tar baby morass that is the political cash machine and yet not be afraid to confront the Progressive kill machine that is the Marxist Democrat party? Don’t be fooled. They might be in disarray, but they’re not retreating in confusion.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Today’s young people are less mature than generations in the past. Mothers and Fathers do most everything for their darlings.
They want to talk to them as if they are adults and can reason as such about their bad behavior and allow them to be babies long past their time instead of being the disciplinarian of parents in past generations.
What kind of problems can arise from this role reversal of parent authoritarian to lenient parent or worse, parent who wants to be their child’s friend.” http://www.thelaboroflove.com/articles/what-will-the-lack-of-discipline-do-to-our-children
The news reports an increase in school shootings. Some of the perpetrators are in homes where there is no father figure. Many have a mental instability. A child that has no boundaries and can do no wrong will have no respect for authority, leading to the seemingly random shootings that are beginning to plaque society.
An overindulged child is a selfish child. They are the center of their universe and all roads lead to their satisfaction. Only the world is not a doting parent.
It begins early with problems in school. Certain routines have to be followed in order for a teacher to have an opportunity to teach. The child has to learn to adapt to a new environment that contains others with whom he or she must have relationships. These people may also be overindulged and selfish. A classroom with twenty to thirty of these young people will be a challenge, both for the teacher and the child.
The teacher cannot teach her class if she is juggling all those egos against school rules and curriculums.
This is a travesty as it will be a waste of twelve years of school for all. Those who are well adjusted and brought up with discipline will be unable to learn because of those who cannot contain their bad behavior.
Putting that aside, what about personal relationships?
The bigger picture is the adult relationship.
Will these children be able to maintain a partnership with another adult of their choosing?
It is doubtful that they will.
Primarily, they have no example of such to follow. With no model of how a mature relationship functions, they are in uncharted waters. Most likely, they will continue being self-absorbed, fall into bad behavior and go from one relationship to another.
What about if they just fail overall in being an adult?
In the recent case of a 30 year old man with a college degree who still lives with his parents. https://people.com/human-interest/parents-sue-30-year-old-son-to-move-out/
After being served several times with the request to leave the parent’s home, which were ignored, the parents took the issue to court and won their eviction request.
The young man in question still seems confused about the reasons for his parental problems. The parents want him to work and move on his own. The son seems to feel that he is entitled to be a houseguest his entire life.
The difference of opinion has moved to an ugly place where the parents and son are estranged.
Wouldn’t it have been better to teach self-reliance from an early age?
Teaching a child that they are the center of the universe, that everything is fair and they are the most precious, do no wrong human beings in the universe is a recipe for disaster.
This is a form of crippling, as the child is unable to function on their own, and it is a disservice to the lame lifeform called offspring. It could almost be termed as child abuse.
A parent cannot live forever. Who will take care of this cripple when they die?
It stands to reason that this person will be unable to function alone and be prone to acting out in unconventional ways.
Why is it that every time there is a shooting in this country, my feeds get flooded by blame. All I see is article after article on who or what I should be blaming for the latest shooting. “It’s because of video game violence!” “No, it’s the gun control laws!” “It’s about religion.” “Blame the parents.” “Blame the government.” “Blame anybody who doesn’t agree with me.”
Ultimately, I understand that people want to find a cause. That way they can turn off the valve, right? Cut off the source, stop the flow, end the violence. I need to run to the hospital for the whiplash as I get dragged in one direction after another. Is there a real answer, no. Maybe that’s why we’re all so confused.
In a society so focused on the individual, so inundated by the idea of one above all, there is no room left for love. Hate crimes, hate groups, home-grown terrorism, it all points to one thing for me. Stop being so selfish. We have so many people hating so much about this country, its people, its leaders, and its laws that I find no surprise anymore in these shootings.
How is a man supposed to respond to the world that he has found. And yes, I say ‘man.’ In 2019 alone, it seems like every time I look at a shooting of more than five people, its a guy. No, it’s not 100 percent, but it is overwhelming. When I look around, I see people screaming at each other about beliefs. Take a moment and search it yourself, I can promise you right now, I can find at least 20 videos of people filming with their phones a confrontation with people protesting. At least 18 of those videos are going to end up in screaming match with one or, more likely, both sides not even listening to each other.
It’s all about me today. I am god. I am the truth. How dare you not agree with me?
And if you are reading this thinking, “Oh, you tell those leftist idiots! They never listen.” Then you are part of the problem.
Again, if you are reading this thinking, “It’s about time someone stood up to those Right Wing nutjobs.” Then you, too, are part of the problem.
People talk about how racism is flooding our nation hating on Hispanics, degrading Blacks, ignoring Whites, and despising anyone else. Heck, I’m probably racist for not listing every single oppressed group like LGBTQ. But this is exactly the problem. We all hate everything that isn’t all about ‘me.’
Let me tell you about something I read on Social Media recently. It was a story about a teacher educating students on the Salem Witch Trials. I read that this teacher decided to play a game with the students. The teacher said they were going to go to each student in the class and whisper to them if they were a witch or a normal citizen.
The teacher proceeded until every student had a designation and then told them that they were to collect into groups. The largest group of students that didn’t have a witch in the group would receive an ‘A’ for the day. The rest of the students not in that group would fail. Likewise, if there was a witch in every group, then the witches would receive the ‘A’ and the other students would fail.
Soon, several groups had formed but quickly began distrusting anyone not already in their group. The hate spread quickly as they shunned each other for the slightest hints of being a ‘witch.’
As the time limit neared its end and the groups were solidifying into solid “cliques” of ‘us vs them.’ The teacher called for the students attention. The time of judgment had come. The teacher then asked every student who they had designated a witch to raise their hand…
The problem was that nobody raised a hand.
The students then turned on the teacher saying that the teacher had done something wrong and the game wasn’t fair. The teacher then explained, “Do you think there was actual witches anywhere in Salem? All I did was release you to act on what you were told, the same they did in Salem.”
Just like the students in this story, I find it quite telling how quickly people in this country abandon humanity. They lose cooperation in favor of segregation. You’re a republican so everything you say is biased drivel that promotes racism and gun violence. You’re a Liberal, so you must only be out to subvert society and erode life.
I feel like the more young people I talk to tend to identify as a middle ground or third party political standing. Maybe it has something to do with our society being more interested in classifying, separating, and statistically quantifying people so much that they are willing to listen to anything with numbers instead of sitting down and taking the time to understand the intricacies of each other.
We are selfish. Instead of generalizing those “Millenials” as lazy, greedy kids who want everything for free, listen to the underlying concerns of wanting to make things like healthcare and education more accessible so that the entire country can be healthier and more educated. Instead of calling those Second Amendment advocates violent sociopaths, try to understand the point that guns mean protection from intruders and shooters, but also from a government that may subdue the population and abuse their right to govern.
Don’t get caught up in the screaming, but also don’t passively agree just to avoid an argument. I know people who will continue arguing a debate just to argue and anger the other person. Even if these people know they are wrong, they don’t care, they don’t want to lose. They are selfish people who don’t build to an answer, they build tension.
One should go into a debate absolutely convinced of their belief with examples to support them, but they should also be open to listening and understanding the other side of the debate. A debate is not a fight, it’s a learning experience. I argue and debate with people to test my thoughts and beliefs. I may still come out believing what I believe or I may come out with a changed mind, but I always learn something and add to my knowledge.
And on that note, don’t degrade and put down people who change their minds. Maybe if we talk to people, try to understand them, they wouldn’t feel so alone with us and violent against us. Maybe we could reduce the mass shootings or find an actual answer instead of just blaming video games or gun laws.
Stop fighting against other groups and start intermingling because, I promise you people, there are no “witches” in this game.
Samuel Adams once said: ”Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.” By that clear definition, America is no longer a moral country but one dragged into corruption by adherents to the political philosophy of Karl Marx. These people, unchallenged, were first allowed to alter our educational curriculum; then suborn our Christian church’s, and then to challenge our codes of morality that was once the glue of a prosperous society. Today we’re at each others throats.
The US Constitution that Sam Adams so revered, guarantees Americans the right to pursue happiness. It does not guarantee happiness, nor misery either, but just the right to pursue it, grow wealthy or destitute, according to an individual abilities. European whites accepted the challenge and many prospered. I do not ignore the era of slavery but that odious practice was ended by whites and reparations, as there were in that day, were made.
But Marxists eschew that notion arguing that too many Americans still don’t share in the fruits of their own industry, that fairness requires a level playing field and that it’s their duty to see that happen. That’s why they pushed affirmative action programs in the 80’s, and an unreasonable minimum wage scheme today, demanding that businesses pay their employees the same wage, even those entry grade jobs that require no experience. Talk about enfranchising discontent!
That policy is driving many small business’s to close or automate. Jobs are lost, vital work experiences is gone and the streets fill up with disaffected, untrained youths who only find solace and acceptance in tribal groups that accept their status, to protest the establishment, rob and steal and turn to drugs to assuage the pain of their uselessness.
I, for one will not allow any politician, especially a Democrat of color (just to be polite), to stigmatize me as a pejorative, in the white racist box. I’ve nothing to be ashamed about as there’s nothing wrong with being white. Whites led the way out of European oppression; whites were supreme in advancing grand philosophical concepts explaining man’s nature to God; in revealing the moral code that allowed everyone to live amicably with their neighbors. I’m white unashamed about it and I won’t apologize for it. I never owned slaves, or Puerto Ricans, and my family never owned slaves. I don’t intend to start now, so I owe them nothing except that they should enjoy the same rights I have to pursue happiness.
I supported Herman Cain when he stood for President and I’ll support Elbert Guillory in Louisiana and John James in Michigan, two Americans of African descent, both running for Senate. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris are not deserving of my attention except to note that neither has a chance against the success of Donald Trump. Neither can overcome the really stupid comments they’ve made, racist and otherwise, all ignored by the media, but clearly understood by us deplorable’s.
The other “white” nimrods in the Democrat queue are desperately trying to convince us they are not in fact, racists simply because they are white. Doing so is an exercise in futility. Being a white Liberal Democrat will be no proof against their own destruction if the surge of third world crackpots, lacking any understanding of the principles of America’s foundation, succeed in supplanting western European traditions and America’s true greatness. That’s a sure formula for facing the loss of centuries of civilized traditions by a regressive dash back into the 14th century, rule by despots and characterized by endless wars and tribal conflicts.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
It would be churlish of me, nay disrespectful, to speak ill of the dead, but that kindness doesn’t extend to the Kooks that form the cadre of hopeful Democrat presidential candidates in debate. If they weren’t so pathetic they could actually be dangerous.
The Kook, Bernie Sanders is a true fringe candidate from his Wizard of Oz hairstyle to his really far left-wing Marxist politics yelling at us what’s best for Americans. All the Kooks, demonstrating their ignorance on the CNN debate stage two nights in a row, leaves us wondering what will be the fate of the Democrat party. Well, there isn’t a Democrat party, just a directionless collection of socialist kooks who don’t understand politics, government, foreign policy or economics.
The new kook, the instant darling of the media, was Marianne Williamson, psychic communicant with the occult whose on-stage performance had everybody on the edge of their seats, oh, not in fear of some spirit hovering about the chamber, but in the pure anxiety that they could be gathered up with Marianne if the Mothership should come to reclaim her just then. Oh!, Scary!
The Kook Bernie Sanders, yells all the time just like Juan Williams does on “The Five” when his screwball retorts are challenged. Progressives must out yell their opponents. It’s the only self-defense mechanism they have when overtaken by the logic of others. They don’t listen to logic. When they do yell, they do so until the opposition just gives up and goes away in disgust leaving the field abandoned as a victory trophy to their personal élan.
My dad once told me “never argue with an idiot; they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you to death with their experience.” America suffered through enough of that ‘experience’ over two nights on CNN that I must wonder who watched any of it? CNN, like the Democrat party, is dead. How they could afford the sole ownership of those silly debates is a wonder.
Joe Biden, the lead Kook by percentages, appears exactly as how he really is, a dim bulb with a women friendly demeanor who is going no where. Is it by chance that one cable channel this month featured “Shark Week?” That’s what the other Kooks did to dim Joe, circled him and took bites out of Democrat (Obama’s) policies he supported as Obamas VP. There’s no justice. He has to defend Obama even while, if you noticed, Obama policies were being attacked as well, and that’s “racist.”
So, if you want to be a racist, simply defend your party’s old policies, say something derogatory about the Democrats new policies, get called a racist by some Leftist numbskull, and there you are, a certified racist! Easy isn’t it?
Then there was Squaw woman, the Kook Elizabeth Warren who has gone all in on Marxism pontificating at the top of her voice, like Bernie does, hoping somebody is listening. She flails her arms and hands like Bernie does. Asked a direct question and they move on to their talking points never answering the questions. So, the stupidity goes on…and on and on.
What was apparent was that the big national and political issues facing America were ignored and no solutions offered except to defeat Trump. Immigration?: let ’em in! Criminals? Don’t deport ‘em!, How to pay for the trillions of free services promised? Steal from the working class.
If this lot returns to power, America is in deep trouble. It’s in trouble enough already. Let’s fix it!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

State law requires DPS agreement with ICE and ten officers to be trained annually
Updated in 2011, Georgia law requires the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to negotiate an agreement with ICE to be 287(g) authorized and to designate no fewer than ten peace officers to be trained for the program – every year.
For the unaware, 287(g) is a federal program that allows certain local or state law enforcement officers to act as immigration agents on a limited basis.
Despite the law (HB87) passed by the General Assembly and signed by then Governor Nathan Deal, DPS is not on the list of law enforcement agencies that are 287(g) “Participating Entities” with ICE. “As of July 2019, ICE has 287(g)… agreements with 79 law enforcement agencies in 21 states,” we are told – but not with DPS.
DPS did have an ICE agreement (MOA) but it was canceled when the re-elected Obama administration scaled back the program at the end of 2012. But, DPS could easily have reapplied after Obama left office. See the letter response from DPS the commissioner to a curious then state senator here.
ICE is open for business on 287(g) now and has been since January 2017
As one of his first acts after being sworn in to office, President Trump issued an Executive Order titled ‘Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States’ in which he made it clear that the 287(g) program was high on his priority list to attack the nation’s illegal immigration crisis.
“By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.), and in order to ensure the public safety of the American people in communities across the United States as well as to ensure that our Nation’s immigration laws are faithfully executed, I hereby declare the policy of the executive branch to be, and order, as follows:… “The purpose of this order is to direct executive departments and agencies (agencies) to employ all lawful means to enforce the immigration laws of the United States.”
The president’s Executive Order had 17 sections. Because the Nathan Deal administration ignored it, people in the current executive branch of Georgia state government may want to pay extra attention to Section 8, which reads in part:
“Federal-State Agreements. It is the policy of the executive branch to empower State and local law enforcement agencies across the country to perform the functions of an immigration officer in the interior of the United States to the maximum extent permitted by law.”
“In furtherance of this policy, the Secretary shall immediately take appropriate action to engage with the Governors of the States, as well as local officials, for the purpose of preparing to enter into agreements under section 287(g) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1357(g))….”
The 287(g) program has different ‘models’ – one for use inside jails, (the Jail Enforcement Model) another more narrow arrangement called “Warrant Service Officer Model”- and one for use by law enforcement who are carrying out their normal duties outside jails – think of it as a “street model – formally known as the “Task Force Model.” Readers who want more information on the details can see here.
Georgia’s DPS had the Task Force model. I am informed by ICE that currently there are no Task Force model agreements in place. DPS can change that fact.
There appears to be no reason for DPS not making a valid attempt to regain the 287(g) authority it is mandated to have in place by re-applying to ICE.
We sent an open records request to DPS asking for copies of any such application and received a negative reply.
I also sent a detailed formal media request for comment for this write-up to DPS and got back only “we are in receipt of your request” but as of this writing (July 23, noon-ish) have not received any comment, explanation or denial of our assumption that DPS is in violation of state law. If this is not the case, we are anxious to hear why.
In a state with more illegal aliens than green card holders, we are even more anxious to hear from Governor Brian Kemp (404-656-1776) about why – law or no law – DPS is apparently not taking advantage of the clear 287(g) expansion push from President Trump to enhance public safety.
And how this fits in with Kemp’s “Big Truck” campaign pledge on the crime of illegal immigration.
We expect that once educated, pro-enforcement voters will be equally curious.
MSM seems to have missed this story.
