Life is a pursuit of happiness for some, and the search for money and power for others and these two goals are not always synonymous with each other. We often find ourselves beginning these journeys without ever knowing ourselves as separate and unique individuals. We copy the behavior that we like and disregard that which is displeasing in other people. Such behavior while viable is a shortcut to existing within the human framework we call society. Living in this manner is detrimental to personal happiness and identity. We all view the world through slightly different lenses, colored with the hue of our own biases and desires. Finding oneself among so much fabrication and betrayal is difficult and a very different journey for each person. Continue reading “The Castaway”
So much of our lives we encounter what at first seems like setbacks, and down the line, we discover that these perceived defeats were in fact blessings. Forces of corruption and evil abound in this world and the lives of even the lowest among us. Thankfully, in what seems like a universe with a sense of humor, these forces are so often inept and bumbling in their efforts to impart discord and division in the lives of humanity that they make their inevitable defeat a straightforward and simple task.

The IGs’ report is due to be released tomorrow no doubt with heavy revisions from the DOJ. I sincerely hope that this will allow us as a nation to move on and put to rest this notion of impeaching our President over ridiculous charges of Russian collusion. While it is true that if you dig long enough you can find dirt on just about anyone when the scope of the investigation exceeds it’s stated purview then its time for the investigation to end. President Trump was never intended to win the election and forces within the government scrambled after he won in order to nullify a duly elected President. Continue reading “The Inspector General’s Report”
We are fortunate enough to live in a part of the world that professes it’s love of liberty and freedom. Yet, the inescapable conclusion that anyone can’t help but reach is that liberty and freedom are eroding at an increasingly fast pace. We are told that racists and nazis are poised nearby ready to pounce upon our lives and destroy them and turn everything on its head. Certainly, when such people present themselves they must be dealt with in a swift and uncompromising way. However, at the same time, the equality we all strive for has been circumvented by those we have installed in power. We exist as guinea pigs in some antiquated experiment operated by a sniveling corrupt leadership. Continue reading “What does liberty mean to you?”
Conflicts throughout history have always materialized due to monetary concerns. Sure as has been taught by the political leaders of old, the real reasons for conflicts are almost never given to the general public.No one would openly support a war based on greed unless they too were getting a piece of the pie. This might sound like a jaded outlook on world affairs, but it is very accurate I can assure you. Our intelligence agencies have a long history of covert actions against foreign governments meant to topple them and failing that to manufacture a compelling reason for embroiling our nation’s soldiers in a war meant only to line the pockets of the elite. While Syria is embroiled in this civil war, the ideologies of the combatants while undoubtedly vital to them is of no consequence to those manipulating the action on the ground. They are tools that men in our outdated intelligence communities use to achieve a political end by not only manipulating the local forces but our very own politicians and citizens at home. Continue reading “The Root of the Syrian Conflict”
A phrase that one occasionally hears tossed about is that citizens get the government they deserve. Whatever metric we choose to measure it by this would seem to be apt in so many ways. A vocal segment of the population is responsible for putting people into power and re-electing them. This segment is a minority of our country’s citizens. They get the government they want, and those of us that are apathetic to the whole process get the government we deserve because we refuse to engage in the future of our country and our children. We care about our children on the local level but fail to effect lasting change that will affect the lives of our children and their children long after we are gone. Continue reading “Do we get the Government we deserve?”
The role of a leader means different things to different people. It used to be someone that made difficult and sometimes agonizing choices to benefit their charges. Increasingly, in this modern caricature of all things honorable we call life it has become less obligatory for a leader to represent their constituents with any sense of honor or loyalty. Machiavelli had an incredible insight into human nature, but he was only out for what benefitted him. He might suggest doing the right thing but only in circumstances that were beneficial to the leader in question. He would have been just as happy ordering the executions of the leader he was advising’s entire family if it would have advanced his political agenda. While this man had an almost omnipotent understanding of our fellow man, he often used this to justify acts of evil. He did not see the world in terms of good and evil, though he recognized the need to appear righteous as a form of assuagement for the folks that were not in his political circle. If any of this sounds familiar to you, it should; this is the playbook by which our elected leaders and many of those appointed ones in the FBI and DOJ use to plan their stratagems for controlling and mitigating the population they play at leading. Continue reading “The Corruption of Reliable Leadership”
Each year we are either treated or are horrified by what we call the State of the Union address. The state of it, however, is never something we can quantify in an impassioned speech. For the many that watched their eyes told them a much more convincing narrative of the status of our nation than any mere statement could have done. Every presidency has its detractors and supporters, but in this increasingly polarized environment, the battle lines are drawn. Continue reading “The SOTU Address: My Reaction”
We live in a polarized nation. Two political parties are supposed to represent all of the American people. They espouse seemingly divergent viewpoints with such vim and vigor that Americans feel compelled to choose sides. We often feel obligated to villainize those with different views than us. What the majority of Americans fail to ascertain is that these apparent political opponents are part of a team and that team contains both ‘divergent’ ideologies. That group consists of those that have power and wish to expand it and the rest of us. The viewpoints that they espouse are merely part of a plan to divide the people, so the people focus on each other and not what these puppets of insanely wealthy and extremely shy men are doing in the name of consolidating rule over a nation blinded by a hatred based on deception. I will discuss the strategies these secretive entities employ to control and fabricate the reality we live in and ways in which we can usurp their power and return it to the people. Continue reading “The Illusionary Paradigm of Political Ideologies”
Freedom means many different things to different people. A lot of people seem to think that freedom is the ability for people to do only the things that they agree with. Freedom means having the ability to make wrong choices as well as the right ones. It means you have the freedom to say what you want, without some government designated free speech zone. It means you can go where you want. It means if you want to do something that’s harmful only to you then you have that right. The false left-right paradigm’s idea of freedom is that you are free only as long as you agree with me.
The erosion of freedom starts at a snails pace, and gradually picks up steam until you are living in chains. When you finally realize this, if you even do it will be too late to turn back the clock. They want to condition you to the idea of always being watched, always being listened to, and always being guilty until proven innocent. This is not the liberty that our founding fathers sought. I have no doubt our founding fathers, if they were here today would be calling for radical change within this country. The only thing radical about liberty is it breaks free from the control freaks that wish to micromanage the lives of their subjects. They believe we are their subjects. They are in fact our servants, and it’s time they learn that.
Today, there are cameras everywhere. They tell you it is for your own safety. That’s always how tyranny starts, for the safety of the people. They can find ways to justify any intrusion into the lives of the masses, if they can make them constantly live in fear of an enemy of their own creation. Safety without freedom and the rights of the individual being protected, is not liberty, it is servitude. If people do not start standing up and speaking out, soon there will be no way to speak out because the state will control all speech. Dissension will not be tolerated. This is a Republic, where the rights of the individual are always protected from the will of a majority. They routinely call this country a democracy, and that’s a lie. In a democracy the mob rules, and should mob say let this group be in chains then it will be so. A republic protects the rights of each and every individual against unfair treatment from a voting majority. I just had to clear the difference up, so the next time you hear that word you understand the difference.
You hear the asinine argument that if you aren’t doing anything wrong then you shouldn’t have anything to worry about with the surveillance state. The government hides a lot of things and calls them classified, does that mean they are doing something wrong. If our government has the right to know everything about us, then shouldn’t the same right apply to us? The government wants to take away our guns, then we should take theirs away. The government needs to learn whose it’s master. It isn’t bankers, it is the people of this country. Without the people there would be no government.
It is time my dear friends to let your voices be heard, before you have no voice to speak with. We can not cower in fear because someone wishes us harm, or because the government says there is a boogeyman out there. There is no amount of danger that is worth giving up the liberties that our founding fathers fought so hard for. The constitution is not a living document as the new yuppie crowd would have you believe. The constitution is there to protect the citizens from their government. Those in power know this and that is why they try and sometimes succeed each and every day in perverting its meaning. We must stand as Americans against the erosion of our rights!! They are our rights, unalienable, they cannot be taken away except by death!
