Hold our breath folks. The Left is on the march. Tomorrow is the Big Day!
So, as reported in almost every media venue today, in a conversation with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her podcast, Hillary Clinton said she would be interested in obtaining Trump's phone records to see whether he was on the phone to Putin while the Capitol was under siege. Its the “seriousness of the charge” that demands investigation you see. The Left is here again to serve us. The Left is inserting more and more paranoia into the conversation with audacious diligence. Are you sure 25,000 American troops are sufficient, trustworthy?
“May I see your papers?” Is that where we are heading? Sure sounds that way to me. But, aren’t we all being a bit rhetorical even asking? The problem, as I see it ,is that the Right is just not conniving (scheming, cunning, crafty, calculating, devious, wily, sly, tricky, artful, guileful, manipulative, Machiavellian, disingenuous, deceitful, underhanded, treacherous…) enough to even make a dent. You see, people who are, by habit, honest, moral individuals, do not have the mindset to even begin to imagine any of the events that are occurring in this, the former Democratic Representative Republic known as the United States of America. No, it is not and never has been a “democracy” as those on both sides evidently allow their growing lack of the understanding of definitions of words all say.
So, I found this very basic definition of “republic” on the web: A republic is a government where the people vote for representatives. Those representatives then hold legislative and executive power. A democracy is simply a government where people vote. Like in mob rule. The US is a democratic republic, not a mob.
It's very much like how the common language being tosses about these days regarding the First Amendment and its position on faith has been watered down to mean “freedom to worship.” Believe me, that is not what it says. Not at all. The First Amendment guarantees that our right in this country is to practice (act on) our faith. Obey the moral compass that our faith prescribes. Not “worship” one day a week for an hour and leave any “beliefs” in the auditorium. Like going bowling. But if you are someone who believes there is no actual real truth then you really can’t relate to this concept. It would appear that those in power are in this group.
Vetting our troops? Mr. Cohen, are you checking for Left Leaning; perhaps Antifa or BLM “infiltrators” who are surely in the National Guard? I have not heard so. So, Mr. Cohen, if you can’t trust our own army, (and the potential conservatives who may be among its members), call in the United Nations. You can trust them for sure.
Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh are among the largest individual contributors I understand with around 8,000 units each in the force. That should do it… for now at least. Have them on every corner. They can check our voter registrations then social media. Perform a little “contact tracing,” take our temperatures etc. (Glad there are no rectal thermometers being used… at least not yet.) And, whatever else you, AOC, Pelosi… and the other elected officials may conjure up for us.
We can all sing “Kumbaya” (After cleaning up the lyrics a bit.Get that “L”-word” out of there) and perhaps a little “This land is your land, this land is my land…” That’s where we seem to be heading. How about “Killing me Softly With Love?” Are these on the official play list? “WAP?” 46 official tunes I hear. A double CD for sure. Maybe its own required listening live streaming station.
Bottom line is, like I have said so many times before, our Right Wing, Conservative Party just does not rise (sink?) to the level of creating such contrived paranoia. We fail miserably at that. Remember, Obama in an attempt to unify the nation telling his supporters to bring a gun to a knife fight? Some time ago, I wrote in an article how the “church going” people I speak to just laugh it off. They just can’t imagine that such wheels to destroy our society and nation are actually in motion. Beyond their imagination. They are not “casing” the country for weaknesses. These are people who do not go around all day looking for chinks in the armor of God so to speak.
We are called to (Ephesians 6:11-20 NKJV), “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” We are warned “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Then we are directed “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Simple.
The Left it appears has spent quite a while finding the possible chinks in this armor, starting with our children in government approved preschools, (those children who escaped abortion that is) right on to adulthood. The moral compass that this nation was founded upon has now become known as “Right Wing Extremism.” While recognizing well over 50 genders, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls on Congress to "look into" a commission on "media literacy,” etc. Is this “normal?” Is this the new normal?
Can I get a definition of “Left Wing Extremism” from anyone? And we talk on and on about it in the news (where we are still allowed to) but took no action when we could. Nope, we allow ourselves to be acted upon over and over. Can’t come out on top like that folks. I have never heard of any war being won by allowing the enemy to overrun them at every juncture and opportunity. Adapting a military oxymoron, trying to lose every battle does not win a war. Pee filled balloons and paranoia seem to be all it took to overrun the USA.
Oh yeah, where can I fit this little bit in? Here, I guess.
Charles Barkley , a black man who played a game I do not bother to watch, basketball. A game invented in the USA by a white, Christian man. Talk about cultural appropriation! Here you go: James Naismith wrote the sports original 13 rules as part of a December 1891 class assignment at a Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) training school in Springfield, Massachusetts.) I wrote about this a few years ago. Would Mr. Barkley kneel for the National Anthem, support BLM or other Leftist insurgent groups were he still on the court today? During an interview on the "NBA on TNT" broadcast Barkley (Net worth around $50 million) said that pro athletes should get the first round of the vaccine. "I think they should let NBA players and coaches all get the vaccine. That’s just my personal opinion. We need 300 million shots. Give some thousand to NBA players … NFL players, hockey players … As much taxes as these players pay, let me repeat that, as much taxes as these players pay, they deserve some preferential treatment.” Wealth and privilege? Charles, maybe you guys should get better accountants. Just a thought.© Frank Louis
