We Have Become Our Own Worst Enemies

The politics have gotten worse than ever again.

Since 2008 and Obama’s left-wing tilt followed by Hillary’s election debacle and Donald Trump’s upset win, what have we seen:

– Resistance

– Violent Marches

– Extremism From Nazis And ANTIFA

– Photos Of Decapitation

– Threats To Blow Up The White House

– Chasing Politicians From Restaurants

– Stealing Questions From Debates

– Secret Dossiers

– Smear Campaigns

– Special Counsels

– Sanctuary Cities

– Lies and Obfuscation

– Endless Challenges and Lawsuits

– Pay Freezes

– Government Shutdowns

– Stalled Legislation For Healthcare, Immigration, And more

– Screams for Impeachment

– Possible Planning of a Coup

– Talk of states seceding or even of another Civil War

Folks, what are we doing?

You’re gonna justify the means with the ends?

However, what are the ends so far and in the foreseeable future.

Nothing productive can get done politically or otherwise this way.

One side wins and the other throws a temper tantrum and stonewalls and then in reverse.

There is world instability from Russia to China, North Korea, and Iran, as well as violence and refugees from Syria to Sudan, Somalia, Myanmar, Iraq, and Afghanistan

The economic boom may very well end up an economic bust when it comes time to pay the humongous national deficit bill.

We are eating each other alive instead of creating a better world order.

Extremism begets extremism.

Hate begets hate.

You can tell yourself that you are fighting for what is right — both sides do — but perhaps you are destroying much more than you are building.

Things have gone too far and this country is self-destructing with or without Russian intervention.

We have become our own worst enemies. 😉

Dysfunction Society

So the world is continuing to go nuts–and it’s like everyone is behaving like Negan from The Walking Dead!


North Korea has achieved ICBM capability with a missile launch yesterday to 2,800 miles altitude—11 times higher than the International Space Station—giving Axis of Evil, North Korea the ability to now hit Washington, D.C.!


At the same time, a career civil servant tries to pull a fast one on the Trump Administration—challenging the President’s right to appoint an Acting Director over the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, which is part of the Executive Branch of government—and hoping that the Senate then won’t confirm Trump’s new appointee for Director, all of which would leave her in charge of CFPB for the next 3 years!  Of course, the courts don’t see it her way, but as the Wall Street Journal noted her coup attempt is definitely something to take note of in democratic, America.


In the background, the Democrats and Republicans continue to beat each other silly and senseless, and not only with stalled legislation on almost every front from Healthcare to Immigration, but now minority leaders Schumer and Pelosi are even refusing to meet with the President over enacting a government budget leading us to another looming government shutdown in December…we can’t seem to keep the government functional or even running for the most powerful nation on Earth.   


Finally, Bitcoin—an artificial computer-generated currency, advanced 1,000-fold this year to hit $10,000! Talking about another financial bubble reminiscent of the manic investment in tulips in the 17th century. What’s the value of Bitcoin or sunflowers? Whatever you want it to be! It’s not about the technology, which may be great, but rather the phony valuing of cryptocurrency, which few understand, and we all know how these bubbles end.  


So overall, we have national security, the administration of our government, and economic stability all in grossly abnormal territory. 


When things get this crazy, eventually you can be sure that something will first start to crack and then potentialy really break, and when it does, will we see more Negan with his brain-bashing baseball bat, Lucille? 😉

Fake Media

Fake News.png

So it’s not supposed to be this way. 


While of course, there is a media bent, it’s not supposed to be a downright bias–the media’s job is to report the news, not take absolute sides. 


Yet these days, the alt-left media seems most hell bent on incessantly attacking the President and working to delegitimize him.


And the President is calling the news media, “the enemy of the American people.”


Russ Limbaugh commented: “The media did not make Donald Trump and they can’t destroy him.”


It started with the election when biased media outlets “ordered employees to destroy Trump“and tried to convince Americans that he absolutely couldn’t win


And only 4 weeks into the now Trump presidency, they are calling that “Congress should impeach Donald Trump.”


What type of Democracy is this?


For eight years, Obama ruled and the media glowed bright with near endless praise–even when things went very wrong, the media played the Secret Service and took the bullet shielding Obama’s every move.


Now with the Trump, the media is no longer the Praetorian Guard, but the the assassin in waiting–plotting and maneuvering for their chance to fire the fatal shot. 


Will it be Flynn, the Russians, the Islamic Terrorist immigration ban or something entirely else. 


The media has the people’s ears…they can spread the news or seed gross and even malicious propaganda. 


While Trump wants to put America First, many media outlets are instead looking to put Trump out to his final pasture. 


When they are targeting the President in such a merciless and endless barrage of negativity and hate, can even President Trump survive? 


While the alt-left media–with funding by billionaire George Soros–kicks and punches away with every article and news segment, it’s our democracy that is surely taking the power beating and dying the death of bias and overthrow.

How’s Things Looking 4 Months Before The Election

Spotlight

Let’s see how are we doing in the last 4 days just 4 months shy of the next election for President of the United States Of America:


– Thursday night…another major terrorist attack in Nice, France left 84 dead and 204 wounded. Terrorism is now so deadly and commonplace that graphic on Facebook shows 4-step cycle of terror attack, pray for x, put up flag profile on Facebook to show unity, and return to state of stupor and await next ISIS rampage. 


– Friday night…another major Arab country in turmoil with a unforeseen coup attempt in Turkey leaving 290 dead and another 1,400 wounded and now 6,000 arrested in a “purge.” Arab Spring has turned into one ongoing murderous chaos in the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia with Syria and Libya still in civil war, Iraq and Afghanistan fending off ISIS in it’s cities and the annual Taliban Summer offensive respectively, and a succession of coups in Egypt 2013 and Yemen 2015. 


– Sunday morning…another breakdown of law and order with 3 more murdered police officers in Baton Rouge, LA following up on 5 cops shot dead a little more than a week prior in Dallas, TX. Friday was supposed to be a Day of Rage across major cities in the U.S. with warnings for people to stay away and seek safety in what’s being seen as a significantly worsening racial divide in a country that has until recent history prided itself on being a successful “melting pot” and driven to equality. 


As anyone who follows the news knows, this is only the tip of the iceberg, and despite vigorous attempts by some to put rose-colored glasses on everything and try to create a forced-air of stability and calm…the truth of the disharmony and discord is loud and getting louder. 


From Brexit to Zika to millions of refugees running for the exits, from Bill Clinton meeting with the Attorney General right before Hillary’s non-indictment, from our exploding national debt and to long foretold bankruptcy of the triad of our social entitlement system, from Russian and Chinese militaristic resurgence in Georgia, Ukraine, the Baltic States, and the South China Sea, respectively, from Iranian and North Korean nuke-capable missile launches, things are getting quite out of control and just 4 months from the election…and the truth is making it to the surface despite all attempts to silence Freedom.
