It has been a while since I have blogged. Sorry about that. I recently re-wrote Under Roswell. Complete with graphics at the beginning of each chapter. That took some time to get it published both in e-book and paperback.
Some of my followers have asked me for my opinion on what is going on in DC. Truly I tell you that I have to limit my exposure to it, as I get damned mad which is counterproductive for a creative.
If you flip through the cable news channels many of the networks are now moving off the Russia fiasco as there was no collusion, to find another crime. This is mob mentality. It is why we left England years ago as we objected to the way the KING did things. Serving a general warrant against his foes, the mob destroyed them while digging into their lives and all who he or she knew, until they could concoct a reason to publicly castrate them.
The mob mentality is the same mentality that was used during the witch trials, and if they haven’t burned all the history books yet, you can find it all the way back to the early church. Americans and I suspect those in the UK where there is still a quasi-free press, are inundated with lies. Our press, most of it is in the pocket of someone. ‘Who’ is the real story?
Facebook and Twitter are acting as publishers, while only allowing the news that promotes the leftist agenda to proliferate among the citizens. The press was created to be that check and balance to our elected officials. Currently, they lead the mob and are heating the tar and getting the feathers ready for conservatives.
“You cannot rely on the media for the truth. You need to pay attention to what is actually happening.”
Anytime you want to know what is truly going on in the world of politics, follow the money.
The major flaw in our system is politicians are always working on getting re-elected. ALLWAYS!
The one exception to that, of course, is if they are retiring.
To run for office, you need money, lots of it. How do you get big corporations and the ‘fat cat bankers’ to give you money?
“You threaten them!”
In 2008 and 2012 President Obama went after the ‘fat cat bankers.’ He threatened to disrupt their predatory loan practices. “wink wink”
This threat did two things, first, it created the optics or illusion that he cares about you. More importantly, it sent a message to the fat cat bankers to talk to the folks on Ave K and make sure they donated generously to his re-election campaign.
How did his threats work BTW? Payday loans went from 471% APR to 900%. The class of people hurt the worst by his deception, were those in the lower middle class and the people living in poverty. And yet people still love him… Why? They don’t care to follow up to see what the man actually did.. He screwed you! I sure hope he kissed you afterward.
AOC and Bernie are now using that page from his playbook before other candidates seize upon it. Now Bernie looks like he cares, and AOC steps into the limelight as something other than ‘totally nuts.’
Tucker Carlson even commented on it. Tucker, surely you can see that this is a ruse.
The Dems don’t hate the NRA, they want money from them as well. Obama was the best thing in the world for gun manufacturers and the NRA. I would love to follow that money trail. One would probably have to start in the Caymans.
Gun sales were through the roof when he threatened to ‘get the guns.’
Politicians are loyal to themselves first, and themselves second, and themselves third. When someone spends 19 million dollars of their own money to possibly get elected to a job that pays $174K a year, even the most doltish among you should see through the smokescreen of the green curtain. They are mostly all frauds, and you buy their garbage. Yes, the wizard is all-powerful and will promise you anything!
Trump won because 63 million of you don’t buy their garbage. He won because he named the enemy. While he is not the smartest man in DC, he surrounds himself with smart people. Any good tank commander finds the best people he can to cover his ass. Trump knows this.
It boggles my mind why he is doing this. Why is he not taking a paycheck? Why is he allowing this constant trashing of his character and reputation? “Is there money involved?”
On its face, he appears very altruistic, is he? If he is truly doing this for the reasons he puts forth, we should put him up for sainthood. My skepticism runs deep, however.
Politicians, (most politicians) don’t care about you. I don’t care what they say, they don’t give a shit about you. All they want is your vote and will say anything they have to, to get it. Politicians use identity politics and any other emotional issue they can come up with, to secure your vote. If they stir up some crazies who take their gun and shoot up some people, to quote Nancy Pelosi, it is (collateral damage.) They don’t care!
Politicians live in gated communities, security guards with guns, have nice houses and are leeches. Most of them.
Term limits… Why? At least in their second term, they would be more concerned about what they ran on, versus getting elected. Make it a law that they cannot be lobbyist after their term.
The absolute farce taking place in DC today is a political distraction to damage Trump. Everything about this investigation flies in the face of the constitution. The FBI has been severely tarnished by this travesty, and one has to wonder what the difference is between China and the US, truly…
We need a disruptor in DC. We need someone to change the way things are done. AOC is not the answer. She is a lightning rod for the Dems, saving Maxine Waters, Feinstein and the rest from their own crap.
What they did to Kavanagh was disgusting beyond the pale. Are they sorry? The only thing they are sorry for is that it did not work.
I challenged some voters on social media as to why they were voting liberal. “We need checks and balance in DC.”
FFS! Trump had the house, and Senate, and could not get it done with his own party. Why??? They only care about themselves, which is it. As long as there are politicians in DC, and the counties around DC are the wealthiest in the country, you can be sure that the American people come dead last, where their lawmaking is concerned. (Mostly)
Uncle Joe is not the answer BTW.
I personally like the man. He has however been infected by the crap that goes on, and would certainly elevate those other countries while destroying this country in the process. People in DC are out of touch and Bernie and AOC are prime examples of the fruitcakes that make the laws you and I have to abide by, while they and their ilk do not.
Presidents come and go, they have term limits. Both parties know this, and the lawmakers most probably all drink beer together in a smoke-filled room while trying to outmaneuver Trump.
I would not trust any of them. Truth told we are in a very dangerous time right now as there are unstable governments who actually think that nukes are the answer. Trump has his hands full and what are the Dems and to some extent the republicans doing? Distracting him with absolute shit! They not only hate this man but, they hate you as well. Not only do they not care about you but, they loathe you. They will kiss your baby, and probably your ass at election time but, then it is onto who will give me what to pass this legislation or award this military spending contract?
Tell me why, and keep it civil.
Now that this is off my chest, possibly I can get into a better place and write fiction again. BTW, thanks to those of you who have purchased so many of my novels. Yes, I still have a day job but, one day it is my fervent hope that I can just write fiction.
