We Hold these Truths to be self-evident …

I was amazed to read that Louis Lerner wanted her testimony sealed.  The head of the IRS that targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election process now wants her statements sealed as she is afraid for herself and her family if the public were to have access to them.

Let’s think about this one.  She used the most powerful agency in the United States, the IRS to swing the outcome of the 2012 Election to the Democrats, and she is only now worried about her actions?  The New York Times in a show of actual journalism should publish the entire transcript on the front page!

If Hillary had won would the public know about this blatant attack on democracy by our own government?

She is a criminal and has forfeited her rights to ask to have her crimes hidden. Why is she not behind bars? Her safety from upset citizens should be the least of her worries!  I bet Martha Stewart is pissed.  Her crimes were child’s play in comparison to that of this person.

CNN and MSNBC have been talking Russia for the last ten months, and now we have actual proof that the IRS targeted conservative groups to stop them from helping Romney and other conservative candidates in 2012. Yes, that is collusion with the then current Obama administration.

It makes no difference which side of the political divide you find yourself, you too should be aghast by this, and demand that people like Louis Lerner are exposed and prosecuted.  One of the things that make the US such a great place to live, is we have fair elections.  Don’t  we?  Are they truly fair?

Hillary said in an interview not long ago that if Fox News had been around when her husband was running, he would not have won.  Now let that sink in for a moment.  What she is inferring is that Fox news is not fair and balanced, that they are not journalists.

What she really is saying or admitting to, is that they would have investigated his every dealing, and just possibly talked more about his predatory sexual predilections, which have dominated the news these last few weeks.  Women do not like men who are in power to rape them.   I know of no woman who likes being raped in the first place!  Had Fox news been around then, she is right; he would have been exposed as the creep that he is, and Monika would not be a household name associated with a semen stain on her blue dress!

The larger question is, where were ABC, CBS and CNN and MSNBC?  Why were they not on top of this story?

Fox news like all news agencies has journalists who are biased, but if you look at their stories, they will call out the Republicans as well as the Democrats.  Do they play to their base, of course, but they do report more middle of the road, than does their competition.  This fact has been statistically proven, it is just not my opinion.

If it is truly about money and market share one would think that CNN would be more middle of the road instead of so far left leaning.  If Fox is doing so well, why not lean right?

Negative stories garner more attention so spinning the news in a negative format sells more air time.  CNN and MSNBC are two of the companies who have more negative coverage on our current president than anyone in that market. If you hate Trump and want to feel good, watch them.  If you would like the actual truth you might look elsewhere.  Russia Today is more unbiased than they are.

News like anything else is all about ratings.  Ratings attract advertisers. Commercials pay for the airtime that the talking heads use to pontificate on their particular take on the stories of the day.  CNN and MSNBC I don’t believe are as biased for political reasons that many think that they are.  What they are doing is playing to their base, keeping their ratings alive through spewing out reasons to hate Trump.  Emotions are easy tools to manipulate you with.  People love bad news about someone that they do not like.

“Gees TW that is a harsh claim!”

Really? If a football team that you don’t like has a key player that is injured, do you not get some feeling of joy from that as now your team which will be playing them next might have an advantage?  It is our secret but, think about it.  We love bad news when it is about someone we don’t like.

Not only do we eat up bad news but we will more readily spread the bad news on social media if it will play to our base.  That is a sad commentary on the human race, don’t you think?

If you have made it this far, good for you.

The only way to fix a problem is to admit that it exists and then identify it.  Once you can identify it, you can name it and figure out how to dismantle it. People who are what I call “asleep” don’t want to hear it.  They certainly don’t want to read it.

The truth of the matter is that if people are biased one way or the other, they do not want to hear opposing thoughts. It does not make a difference if it is the truth, they don’t want to listen to it.

Still don’t believe me???

How many times have you heard some parent say, “not my kid!”  Maybe you have said it yourself, “my kid would never do that!”

Some good friends of mine said that about their kid.  It is called denial… When they heard that he was seen doing drugs with some other children, they asked him about it. “Oh no mom, when I saw what they were doing I left them, I will never even see them again!  Drugs are stupid just like you always say mom.” They believed the lies because to quote Jack Nicholson; they could not handle the truth.

Two weeks later they went up to his room to get him up, as he was late for Church.  They found him dead in his bed.  Cause of death, he drowned in his own vomit due to overdosing on the very drugs that he denied he was taking.  True story, very sad. I grieved with them but, I knew the problem then as I do now.  We don’t want to hear the truth!

It is our nature not to want to hear that which we find repugnant unless it is about the other guy.  The scream from his mother was indicative of the looks on the faces from the Hillary supporters the night that she lost to Trump.  Ten months later we still have a divided country because many cannot handle the truth.

Some perfectly dishonest politicians are still trying to float impeachment proceedings to play to their base so they will get re-elected.  It is foolish showmanship but some hateful folks out there will buy it.

Hillary was a flawed candidate and never should have been the DNC pick!  They underestimated the appeal of a populist and were more worried about Bernie, than Trump.  The mere fact that she rigged the election to screw Bernie is more than the proof you should need.  The Billy Bass tape was their ace in the hole.  They were wrong.

Today we read that many of the FBI agents that were investigating Hillary’s emails were huge supporters of hers.  They hid the evidence against her, rather than do their jobs.

Government officials just like white cops cannot be prejudiced against the other political side, or different colors of humans.  The tapestry of America is weaved together with all different kinds of humans who appear and think a little differently.  It is called diversity.  From race to political affiliation they are all necessary and make up the whole of who we are as a people, Americans!

I don’t have to hold your beliefs to be kind and respectful of you as a human.  The converse is also true.

Why is that concept so hard to embrace?

We hear all this talk about racism and bias but, we do nothing about it other than perpetuating the atmosphere that begat it in the first place.

  • Journalists are to report the events, not create them.
  • The IRS is to enforce the tax laws as they are, not make them up for different groups.
  • Judges are to enforce the laws and the constitution, applying them equally to all with a blind eye to race, sex or political affiliation. They are not to change the meaning of the constitution for some political agenda.
  • Police are to protect and to serve without any racial partiality or bigotry.

You the people, the citizens, are who pay them, they work for you.

You cannot fix what you cannot or refuse to identify.  With many, it is a heart issue.  If you do not believe what I am telling you, and I get that many will want to write and tell me how full of it I am, do this first.

If you are a Fox news person, watch CNN and MSNBC.  I know that you will be angry and upset at watching the hate and contempt from the other side but listen for any truths.  Could there be some truth to what they are saying?

Mika Brzezinski was caught on camera talking about what they do.  She said and I quote, “We tell the American people what to think.”  That my friends is arrogance run amuck! No honey, you report the facts whatever they are period.  It is called journalism.  Anything else is called propaganda!

If you are in the camp of CNN and MSNBC and of course Bill Mahar and the other nightly comedians that pass off their acts as news, you watch Fox News and do the same exercise.  Could there be any truth in what any of the folks are saying?  Sit through the evening line up and make notes. Yes, watch Hannity as well.  He is entertaining at least.

When you are all sick of the biases that you will have no doubt spotted, go and find OAN news.  The news media that both sides of the spectrum hate.  They are doing whatever they can to get them removed from the cable lineup.  Why???  They merely report the facts, no spin.  Some of their talent is rather sophomoric but, the facts are just the facts.  You are smart enough to make up your own minds.

The press is indeed our eyes and ears on the goings on in our country.  We depend on them to report the facts.  We need the true facts so we can make informed decisions.  Folks we are not getting that.  Journalism is all but dead in this country, and we as a people need to demand better.  How?  Stop watching them, watch or listen to OAN.  Support agencies that provide the unbiased truth.

Back in the early days of civilization, there was one entity which all came from. Do you know what it was?  No, not god but close, it was the Catholic Church.  They were the spiritual leader of all the people.  They were the teachers of everything that they thought you needed to know.  They were also the government which would have you killed if you defied them.  I kid you not, this was one powerful bunch of people and the citizens were slaves to them.  They did tell them what to think, with death or prison being the option for anyone that dared not fall into lockstep agreement.  Did you know it was illegal in the day to own your own bible?  It is true, can you guess why?

They did not want you thinking for yourself much like it was illegal to educate slaves in early American history, the same was true back during the early church.  Today in N. Korea this is still true.  Not the church but the government is the ultimate supreme authority with brainwashing as their main industry.

How do we fix this country???

We start by hearing and accepting the truth no matter how ugly it is. You cannot fix what you don’t acknowledge.  It is like going to the doctor with pain, and he tells you that you have cancer.  Do you say ok, I have cancer what can we do about it?  Or, do you say, that is not possible and leave his office not dealing with the diagnosis?  Many in this country are leaving cancer untreated, which will be the death of this country as we know it.  Many who have pain will not go to the doctor for fear that it is cancer.  They just don’t want to know the truth.

Learn to look for and embrace the truth no matter what it is.  If some facts are unbelievable, check many sources before you re-post on social media a lie, perpetrated by some other country or a hate-filled moron.  Snopes is not a reliable source of information BTW.

These ANTIFA criminals are one more symptom of this cancer.  They believe that what they are doing is anti-fascism, but in reality, they are the fascist and also criminals. They have bought the lies from hate-filled professors who are spewing it and are acting on it. All they have to do is trigger them emotionally, and they will respond.  Their actions will seem just, so that they will commit to them and act on them.  They will destroy their own campus and prevent the very free speech that they say that they are fighting for.  They are in fact misguided youth under the control of evil people.

The men who flew the planes into the twin towers killing thousands felt that their actions were just, and were determined to their cause.  They too believed in their mission.  There is no difference. If you think that there is, you are mistaken.

Civilized debate on the topics are necessary, and that cannot start until you are ready to listen!  You must be willing to hear that you have cancer.  Until then, the violence and unrest will continue, and the barbarians both in DC and in positions of power elsewhere will continue to prevail.  The useful idiots of the power brokers will fight their battles, helping cancer to win.  The power brokers must be identified and held accountable. Mrs. Lerner is one and needs to be behind bars.  An example needs to make out of her and her ilk.

Her testimony needs to be on the front page of some paper, that has a smidgeon of integrity left.

As always I am interested in your take on my blogs.  Spending much time writing them, it is always nice to at least get a like or a new follower.  Feel free to disagree but please keep in mind that I ignore truculence or perfidy of any sort.

My novels are just about always uplifting and enjoyable, so if you are not already a reader, please check one or more out.  From Science fiction to romance to erotic naughtiness, it is all out there for you to enjoy.

Thanks for the follows and re-tweets.  While much of what I do is for you, this is a marketing tool for my novels, and I unabashedly admit it.  These blogs are full of useful information, or thoughts or ideas to pontificate over around the water cooler or dinner table.

My novels are certainly more entertaining and are selling nicely worldwide. Be one of my followers here so you can say you knew me when.  My goal is to quit the day job and write full time.  Number #26 is almost finished, and then we have to decide what the subject matter will be for #27  … Ideas?  What would you like to see or read?

My heart breaks!

 

The evil that exists in this world never ceases to amaze me.  What kind of chicken shit coward goes into a church, and kills 26 people; women, children and old men?  Churches are welcoming places where anyone is welcome.

Many on social media are calling for Gun control.

Define gun control?

Unless you can wave a magic wand and make all 500 million plus firearms vanish, there is no such animal, like gun control.

While a good guy with a gun stopped the bad guy with a gun, those same advocates of gun control would take his gun away from him as well.  With that rather stupid logic, the only people with guns would be the criminals.  Criminals don’t give a damn about laws of any sort, just in case you did not know.

If bump stocks were outlawed, the criminals would still have them.  If machine guns were illegal, the criminals would always have them.  We have rogue nations with nukes pointed at the US!  That is illegal, immoral and probably going to get them all killed!

Me, You, and the rest of us are being manipulated by people who hate the US.

How or why do I say that?

Anytime something happens that evokes an emotional response the evil people go to work spreading hate and discontent.  The memes are all ready to go just waiting for the next crazy person to react to some trigger.

If I want to manipulate you I just “trigger” your emotions.  Then I pour gasoline on the fire by using expletives and calling you names.  I may have several twitter accounts, picking a fight with myself that others see, and think it is between several people.   Those others chime in and before I know it I have tens of thousands fighting a Twitter war that I am having with myself!

Dividing us, pitting us against one another through social media is what they do best.  Some of them are just robots spreading hate word salad.  Some are trolls of a foreign government. Some are just really misinformed or radicalized miscreants hiding in their mother’s basement, using her internet feeling all big and powerful in their anonymity.

  • The NRA had nothing to do with this, nice try.
  • The GOP or the DNC had nothing to do with this.

Many out there are using the F-word calling anyone that is not a gun control fanatic a Nazi.

Your vile rhetoric is lost, as is your argument.  You are probably one of the trolls of which I speak.

Since the guy is dead, we may not understand why he did what he did.

There are early reports that he was discharged dishonorably from the air force. If that fact disqualifies him from owning guns, then we need to find out why he had one.

I will cede one point with the gun control crowd.

I believe that if you choose to own a weapon, you should be required to submit to a background check by the FBI. I don’t know what the laws are currently, but I think you just have to full out a form and answer all the questions correctly.

The hate in this country is reaching new levels, and I genuinely believe that social media plays a large part.

Just possibly we should shut it all off!  Zuckerberg and the other Twitter moguls would lose money, but just maybe we might talk with our neighbors again instead of tweeting to the world en masse!

This is so far past anything that I have ever seen before.  Maybe they do need to legalize pot so everyone could just take a few hits and chill!

We are all the same, we all bleed red, and there is no excuse for the vitriol we see today.

A town of 400 people will be devastated perhaps from now on.  We need to learn the root cause analysis, or genesis of this persons anger, and try to unravel the events which brought him into this town with the large cache of weapons that he had.  I do not believe this was his only target.  It is just possible that the church down the road was his next target.

Our words carry weight, and they matter.

Bonjour, Hola, Hallo, Ciao and even Aloha… and … my thoughts on Virginia

We need to teach critical thinking, not indoctrination.

 

Welcome new followers!   Thanks so much for following me.

I spent so much effort and time creating novels that I am afraid I am way behind the eight ball where marketing is concerned.  Blogging is marketing.  Blogging is also a nice way to get to know you, and you, me.

Here is where you get to know me outside of my novels, and I can get to know you if, you will take a moment and say hello.  While English is my chosen language and the only one that I know fluently, I love to speak with those who read my writings or would like to engage in some dialogue of a philosophical nature.

Many of you are fellow bloggers, and that is wonderful.  I love reading about what you are up to.

Those of you who follow me know that I don’t shy away from subjects that are controversial. 

I had some thoughts about the recent events here in the US that are troubling.  I sent out a tweet the day of the riots in Virginia and some “person” asked me rather snarkily if I just started watching the news.  My tweet simply stated that “I was amazed at the level of evil that we are capable of.”

I do not respond to snark, or jerks, or what have you. His or her loss really but I refuse to get into the dirt with them.  Keep it civil, respectful etc., no problem.  I don’t require you to agree with me.  I do require that you are respectful.

I despise the media and have for years.  To them it is all about ratings and as a people no matter what country you happen to be in, that is propaganda.  The media may have started this simply for ratings but when you look at the “who is who charts” and find that someone way up in the media food chain is tied to some government official or worse yet, some mega multi conglomerate “special interests” group, one has to wonder.

No, I don’t watch the news, it is a waste of time.  Mostly it is either opinion or conjecture or just damned lies.  The cable companies have hundreds of channels to fill with something from swamp people to DIY this or that.  They all compete for ratings.  When you say or promote audacious programming for ratings, the viewer should probably use their brain and think about the validity of what they are watching.

When children’s programming has messages in it which are politically charged, one has to wonder if you really need TV at all! We need to teach critical thinking, not indoctrination.

I found a twitter post that was a recruiting tool for paid protestors for this event over the weekend.  If the riots had paid actors in there to stir things up, that is wrong on so many levels of wrong.  People were supposedly paid $25 an hour to go and egg on the protestors and take whatever side needed to be egged on whether it was the Antifa or the Nazi’s or KKK or even BLM.  It is kind of like the devil had a hand in it.

There were tweets of pictures of two men who were AntiFa one time, and Nazi’s the next, same two men.  WTF?  Are we being played by someone with a god complex?

Somone died, as emotions are raw as was the purpose of the agitators to make sure that emotions were kept raw.  Who paid them?  Who thinks it a good idea to send paid protestors to go to these protest and make things worse?

No, I don’t watch the news.  There are anarchist everywhere, and someone with deep pockets is funding it to make sure it keeps us all divided.  If I want to spur you or anyone into action, all I have to do is trigger you on some emotional level and bingo!

I prefer intellectual, logical debate.  Keeping an open mind, I might learn something and make some new friends along the way.  Even if we don’t agree we can agree to disagree and remain, friends, can we not?

When you fail to listen to the other side of the same coin, you will never understand why they do what they do or say what they say.  You might also learn that you are wrong, so it pays to listen.

Ignorance without EGO is an opportunity learn.  Ignorance with EGO is simply propaganda.

So what was this all about anyway?  What was the protest about, how did it start and who was there?

It started out with the proposed demolition of a Statue.  The White Nationalist party went to protest the removal of this statue peacefully.  Ever since Dylan Roof shot up the church to start a race war, we have been practicing revisionist history.  That is exactly what it is but, the left calls it something else.

History is history no matter what it is.  To remove statues and flags is nonsense but you might see that differently.

Dylan Roof may have started more than he ever could have hoped for as this gave more fuel to a racist few who see racism everywhere.  The interesting part of this whole story is somehow it is blamed on Trump and by proxy anyone who happens to be a conservative.

History 101 TWScott’s abbreviated version.

The first Republican president was the 16th, and for those that don’t know, that was Abraham Lincoln.

He ran on equal rights for all colors of peoples and of course to free the slaves from bondage.  After he completed that task, he was gunned down in a theatre by guess who, a Democrat, who was not fond of his idea of freeing the slaves or allowing them to vote.  The VP took over who ran on the same ticket with Lincoln who also happens to be a Democrat.  Talk about reaching across the aisle.

Andrew Johnson, the 17th president, was not fond of Lincolns ideas and halted much of what he had started.  Democrats started the KKK and were very much against freeing the slaves or allowing them to vote.  The Democrats tried to stop them from voting by charging them a poll tax.  Many Democrats in the south did not want them to vote so they decided to institute a literacy or intelligence test before you could vote.

Remember, it was illegal to teach a slave to read much less anything else other than picking cotton or other menial task.  Knowledge is power, and the Democrats knew it.

Fast forward to LBJ the 36th president who was as much a racist that ever was.  While history is being re-written on many web sites, the truth is that since the blacks were allowed to vote he was going to make sure that they voted Democrat.  Turning his black hating attention to using them as useful idiots, he pushed through legislation that would keep the black man down for centuries by buying their vote with just enough in the way of entitlements to keep them from having any desire to do better for themselves.

Removing their desire for self-improvement by turning them into a welfare society, he was quoted as saying, That will keep them N****gers voting Democrat for the next 200 years!

Now you can get all upset, but those are the facts.  Bear in mind that you might have to go to the library and do some research as revisionist are indeed changing the history on individual websites.  Even the History channel web site has been altered leaving out the quote that he was rather famous for making!  While admitting he was a racist, they don’t spell it out, as I have here or as history has many times.

So who else was in Virginia and why were they there?

Antifa was there who are extreme left-wing miscreants who are in fact, true fascist.  Their strong opinions on a misguided philosophy by someone who is bad at history, which pretty much defines them as fascist.  That is rather funny in an odd way if you think about it.

Antifa was there to stop the White Nationist, not to be confused with the Nazi’s or KKK, also lefty organizations.  The Nazi’s and Antifa were working hand in hand which was rather strange and along with BLM  to go after the White Nationist (conservatives).  The white nationalists are saying history is sacrosanct, you don’t alter what you don’t like, hence the protest.  If you want to erect another statue, buy the land, pay an artist and have the thing situation on your land and dedicate it but, you don’t simply rewrite history that you don’t like!

The simplicity of the argument is you don’t subtract from history but, you can add to it as long is it is truthful.

Then, of course, you had the professional agitators who came and made sure that it got ugly.

No, I don’t watch the news, but I do go and get the facts!  The news is so biased that you cannot believe them at all.  If they tell me it is a pretty day outside, I am going to look to make sure.  They have an agenda.  Ratings are their first agenda but remember this; there are many things one must do to destroy a country, or take it over.

First, you divide everyone in every possible way.  With social media, it is easy as there are robots on Twitter putting out hate word salad.  Then you have the paid for trolls who spout out hate garbage and get those that are already polarized to retweet it, to their friends and so on.  If you tell a lie or hear a lie often enough, you believe it.  Many who listen to comedians are regularly exposed to garbage, based on hate.

The next thing you do to control a country is, control the narrative, in this case, the media and of course the beloved people on the silver screen who we know so intimately as we have been in their bedrooms.  That, of course, is the fallacy of it, but they depend upon you thinking that way.  Trust me; you don’t know them! If you did, you might be surprised to learn just how vapid and narcissistic that some of them are.

Once you control the media and keep the masses divided, you get someone, oh like Hitler to come in and identify with you and point out all of the problems in the world and place the blame on someone and offer to fix it all for your vote and a minor re-write of your constitution.  If you think this is some dystopian plot for one of my books, I only wish it was.  That is the plan of someone with a huge megalomaniac, god complex, and deep deep pockets!  Do you think it is Trump?  Do you think it is Putin?  Who would you suspect of such an evil plot to transform America into something it is not?

That beloved Movie star that most girls dream about, Mathew McConaughey said not long ago, “that second amendment, we can live without that.”  Just a minor rewrite of your Constitution, right?

No, Mathew, you body guard surrounded misguided fool, we need our second amendment, and our first, and all the rest of them.  They were written by people much wiser than you.  Memorize your script, remain sexy, and emote; so your misguided sycophants who think they know you can fantasize.

Just food for thought here but Trump, the American President, is your president if you are an American. He ran on draining the swamp.  At his inauguration, he stood a few feet from President Obama and said that the Washington elites are screwing you the people, and I am here to stop it!  Say what you want, but that took balls!  The swamp monsters are fighting back, which is what we see in the media daily.

Those on both sides are fighting him because they don’t want to be exposed for the frauds that they are.

“As a senator, you don’t spend millions of your dollars for a job that pays $100K a year!  That is insanity unless of course, you are going to steal from the taxpayer’s piggie banks, all that you can.”

Ever wonder why many of those senators are now millionaires living the good life while filling you full of lies? Why are they still working in their 70’s?  Why not take their millions and enjoy what years they have left? Riddle me that Batman?

“If you become wealthy as a public servant, you are most probably a thief or crook.”

America, your enemy is not Trump, it is the media and the career politicians.

No, not a Trumpian, just a patriot who reads one hell of a lot, when I am not writing one hell of a lot.  I think about things like “why.”

Occam’s razor comes into play with many of these things, but you must have a little critical thought process, and be willing to watch something other than the MSM and research things.

As always I am interested in your thoughts.

Feel free to follow me and oh, by the way, buy one or more of my books.  I really want to quit my day job, and I need you to help me with that.  Forward my stuff to your friends.  Retweet my tweets.  Write a glowing review for me …

If you have a topic that you would like talk about, leave me a note.  I might have an opinion that could surprise and delight you.  Or, I might just give you a recipe for Banana Bread.  🙂

Much Love -TW
