Spineless Congressional Delegation

A few weeks ago I wrote Montana’s Congressman Gianforte, Montana Senator Steve Daines, and Montana Senator Jon Tester. The message I sent was very simple: “I do not support the impeachment of President Trump, nor do I support any impeachment proceedings.” I did take the opportunity to request a response because this will likely be the most important political battle in my lifetime.

The responses were expected, but still shocking in their complacency.

  • Senator Tester, of course, has not responded. He has been silent on an active coup of a duly elected president. There was no Russia collusion. There was no quid pro quo with the Ukraine, despite how much the mainstream media wishes there was. Senator Tester by lack of action is complicit in this coup.
  • Senator Daines responded within a week, that “no information to date meets the threshold of impeachment.” To me that means he (his staffers to be fair) are complicit in looking for impeachable offenses. Remember that the sixth amendment guarantees a right to speed trial, and a jury by peers. A partisan impeachment inquiry held in secret, with planned leaks is diametrically opposed to that amendment. No thanks Senator Daines, you are derelict in your duty to stand up for Montanan’s principles and morals.
  • Congressman Gianforte, who failed to join the Congressmen who crashed the secret inquiry’s meeting, responded within two weeks. His staffer gave me a civics lesson on how impeachment proceedings work, with a hint that they’re not pleased with the process: “House Democrats are not allowing an open process. I believe that you have to conduct the hearings in the open and the accused should be able to defend themselves.” No thanks Congressman Gianforte, I learned civics in high school, at least you should make a statement on what you plan to do.

Both responses are attached in entirety, except I removed my home address.

When you are an elected representative, it is your duty to clearly define what you stand for, and then make your stand. None of Montana’s delegation has demonstrated that they can be bothered to show President Trump a modicum of support. I suggest we vote these slackers out wholesale, unless it means giving more power to the vile Democrat party.

PS: I have sent “A Coup” to all of Montana’s Congressional delegation… Crickets…

A Patriot

General Mike Flynn has been financially destroyed. Except for his fortuitous hiring, and the generosity of, Sydney Powell’s legal team, his personal life and probably physical health would have been destroyed as well.

The short version, which every American should learn, is that General Flynn plead guilty to charges leveled by the corrupt Deep State led by the Obama administration. He did so because his plea would force the Department of Justice to produce the materials they were using as evidence against him. During the production of those materials, the malfeasance and gross negligence of the DoJ were exposed. Counselor Powell’s team has done an excellent job of highlighting the massive lack of moral integrity in the DoJ.

General Flynn is a true patriot and has done his job fighting the evil Democrat coalition that is attempting to destroy this country. If you can, please help restore General Flynn’s financial stability.

NOTE: There are a number of illegitimate funds, according to Ms. Powell, the linked fund is the correct one.

A Republic, if you can keep it

Dr. Franklin was asked by a lady if the United States was a republic or a monarchy. Dr. Franklin’s response was “A republic if you can keep it.”

Nearly everyone I encounter are keeping their heads down, working hard to get through to the next weekend, while taking care of their family and their local community. A few of those people spend a little time to look around at society, politics, economics, industry, and other important trends. However very few people have the time or the capability to mount a continuous and momentous effort against tyranny.

This is where spiritual health is important. We must have a relationship with God so we know what we’re responsible for and what He is responsible for. God is responsible for the things we can’t possible control. Everything else is in our court.

Swamp Depth

It’s very difficult to see how deep a body of water is by looking down into it. Since light travels at different speeds depending on the medium it’s travelling through, what you see when looking in the water is completely different from what your mind is used to comprehending. So your mind isn’t prepared to make valid conclusions based on your experiences.

The same is true of the drain the swamp movement. You can’t tell how deep the swamp is from a casual glance. But you should be able to tell that it’s so deep you can’t make a rational estimate.

The principle is that you must constantly assess whether your conclusions are based on fact or perceptions.

God First

The reason God has to be first, is because you have to ensure you are spiritually prepared before you can begin mental and physical preparations. If you’re mentally robust, but don’t have the assurance that God has your back, what good is you tenacity? Similarly, if you can leap small buildings in a single bound, but don’t know which building to leap, how do you know you’re headed in the right direction?

Twits

Twitter was genius to brand their messages as tweets. However, my opinion is that the shortened version of Twitter is:

twit n.

  1. Informal A foolishly annoying person.
  2. A reproach, gibe, or taunt.

The art of persuasion commonly uses this technique: anchor the conversation before others have a chance to form an opinion of what the conversation should encompass.

Political Hitman

It’s readily apparent that Adam Schiff is a political hitman. Instead of recounting the trail of despicable and underhanded things done by Democrats, and probably never-Trump Republicans, that lead to Ukraine-Gate, the lesson we should learn is doing the right thing day in and day out puts you in an unassailable position. While a storm rages around you and while you get very tired of the slander, lies, and unfounded attacks, you are standing on a rock because you have nothing to hide.

1st and 2nd Amendments

The first amendment only works if you can keep it. That’s why the 2nd amendment formalizes citizens’ rights against tyrannical government.

If you lose free speech, then you can’t progress as a society.

If you lose your right to bear arms, you’re at the mercy of thugs, thieves, outlaws, scofflaws, and politicians.

The principle is you have to stand up for your rights, or they will be taken from you.

Damned kids

A child’s trajectory to adulthood looks something like this:

  1. They’re born to a parent that likely abuses recreational or prescription drugs.
  2. It’s very unlikely the child has two parents who create a stable family unit. So the child begins to wonder if their parents really wanted children.
  3. Since they don’t have parents, when the child enters school they are wild and unruly. The school recommends a collection of pharmaceuticals. And the child wonders what’s wrong with them.
  4. Since they’re doped up, the child doesn’t really learn anything in school, not that the school had time to teach anything after “parenting” the child. By the time they reach high-school they’re woe-fully unprepared.
  5. After high-school, they follow the expectation that all children should go to college: despite them not being prepared, and probably intellectually incapable of college.
  6. Their college degree in social studies doesn’t prepare them for any productive employment, but it does saddle them with tons of debt.
  7. They attempt to find a job to service their debt, and find they need a car and a new home. This saddles them with more debt, and likely 30-40 years of slave labor to break even – if they’re lucky.
  8. Plus, the current crop of leaders in the US constantly bombard them with the news that nothing really matters because the world is ending in 10-12 years due to climate change.

And we wonder why they’re snapping? You can see the results of this in real time in Hong Kong. Not that anybody’s watching…

The principle is you cannot expect productive people when you don’t have families.

Simplicity

A close friend was mentioning that he can’t understand why President Trump isn’t pushing for so many of the basic changes that would MAGA. His first example was if you turn loose a true free-market economy in the United States, tariffs with China wouldn’t be necessary. True. In fact, nobody in the world can compete with a free-market economy. Government needs to repeal rules and regulations, while revamping the litigious culture into a judicial system.

His second example, was that a sovereign state is absolutely necessary, but a wall is a waste. Also true. A wall is a monument to a stupidity named well-fare. If the United States refused to pay well-fare for illegals, the illegals would quickly stop coming here.

He had other examples, and I admire his candor in expressing his principles. One: the free-market will blow the doors off all other economies. Do not confuse the present US economy with a free-market economy. Two: well-fare is a misnomer. The primary job of the US is to create opportunity, not redistribute wealth.
