Are we under attack?

Who is the enemy?

 

The trend we see today at least in the USA is alarming.  Using social media, groups can leverage companies to react to pressure changing how they spend their advertising dollars.

When Chick-Fil-A donated money to a pro-life group the LGBTQ group “community organized” to boycott them and shut them down.

The MSM gave them the free publicity that they needed to rile up the masses and a boycott was formed.

There was a slight problem with that.  Most of the population of the country realized that Chick-fila was being bullied by a left-wing group.  The action by the LGBTQ people was designed to inhibit Chick Fila from having a first amendment right to donate money as they so choose to do.  It backfired.

The LGBTQ community should have realized that the very thing they rail against most which is “bullying” is what they were doing to a company that happens to be Christian and pro-life.

We have seen many “community organizing tactics” during the last few years where the left tries to shut down the right by going after their advertisers.

Today we see a tragedy in Florida being exploited by people with an agenda. Using children as weapons to force companies to either bend to their will or face financial ruin. Companies who support the NRA are being bullied to no longer do business with them or suffer consequences.

“How would you like some group organized by your opponents to target you?”

While this group should be complaining to the FBI and others who dropped the ball, they target the NRA.

“Why?”

If they make the NRA the bad guy, then all they have to do is tie the GOP to the NRA. No matter if the devil him or herself is running as the Democratic opponent in the mid-terms, they believe it will affect enough voters to think that somehow an organization that protects your second amendment right Is to blame for all the gun violence in this country.

Since Trump has stated time and time again that the NRA supports him, it is a natural leap to think that if they just get those “Republicans out of office, all the school shootings will stop.”

“It is absolute bullshit, wrong on every level of wrong, and they don’t care!”

Exploiting children who play hours on end of role-playing violent video games blaming the NRA for their problems is just idiotic.  The problem is the idiots believe them as they are speaking their language.

The flawed message is :

  • Terrible tragedy
  • NRA to blame
  • Republicans supported by NRA
  • Democrats good, Republicans Bad..

What is worse is we have Russians and other nefarious groups whose sole purpose is to sow the seeds of discontent. They use social media creating fake news stories the people will click on and share assisting those that wish to take this country apart.

I would encourage those of you who support the NRA, to help these companies targeted by the anti-gun lunatics who think more laws will finally force the bad guys, to capitulate and stop being a criminal. Only support them if they resist these fringe elements of society who are not in touch with the American people.

Florida was preventable, and the FBI and others are to blame for it. They have accepted the blame.  Why blame the NRA when they had nothing to do with it?

No matter how many schools you walk out of, or how much you protest, the bad guy is out there.

The root cause of most of these shootings is not the gun or the knife of the truck, or the baseball bat or machete.

The root cause is mental illness.

If you want to march, march against mental illness.

  • How is it that people are mentally ill?
  • What happened to them?
  • Were they born mentally ill?
  • Did they turn mentally ill?
  • What was there home life like?
  • Did they have both parents?
  • Did the shooter play hours of violent video games?
  • Did they watch hours of horror movies?
  • Were they in combat?
  • Did they suffer from PTSD
  • Were they drug users?
  • What triggered them into action
  • Was it planned or spontaneous?
  • What were the warning signs?
  • Why were they ignored by the FBI
  • Why were they ignored by the local police?
  • How did this person not have his name on the list of not to sell a gun to?

Marching against guns is like marching against rocks.  When man was still living in caves, he hunted each other, killing them with yes, a stone.  (very much like cane and able) Hitting them on the head, they would then eat them, and their brain was one of the first things they ate.

It is a misguided concept to think that marching against guns and blaming an inanimate object is going to solve anything.

Looking at the problems in the light of day is not glorious.  Solving the issues, you must first identify them and then address them.

When an organization readily tells you what they are, and it turns out to be a gun, be very suspect.

The left for some reason wants to disarm Americans.  With the millions of guns in this country, it will never happen.  But they try and first they do this by attacking the NRA.  Those of us with a brain in our heads will make sure that will never happen.  You can attack their business partners but we the people will make sure that the NRA does not go anywhere.

You can link the shooter and his actions to the Republicans which is what you are attempting to do but, we will fight you there too.  We will fight you because it is not true.  The last lunatic who shot up the congressmen was a Bernie supporter, and we will not let the world forget that.  He was an ardent left wing nut job who watched and believed the hateful hyperbole spewed forth by the likes of the left wing media. He was enraged by their propaganda to the point of trying to kill people.

The logical debate will bring forth logical discussions.  The emotional debate will bring forth action.

Words have meaning.  You cannot go into an auditorium and yell fire, and you should not be able to spew out hateful rhetoric which is unfounded, as a news organization.

Journalism is objective reporting of the facts, not what you want the events to be.

Some people watch late night comedians and think it is news.  When vital news organizations have to pay airports tens of thousands of dollars to only play their news stations in the terminals, that should tip off the world that just maybe they have an agenda.

“Yes, they will say it is for their advertisers but, C’mon!”

If the FBI were not looking for Russians under every Republican bed, while trying to bring McCarthyism back to life just maybe, they would have paid some attention to the many red flags and warnings about this dangerous individual, and prevented it from happening.  Had the Local police after going out to this kids house 39 times on domestic disturbance calls, knowing he was violent were thinking just a little, they might have put the kid’s name on the list of those to not sell guns to.

The NRA is not the problem.

What I find interesting is when talking to liberals about this they did not know about the warning signs.  They did not know that the FBI messed up and accepted fault.  They were unaware that this kid had been visited 39 times by the local police for violent domestic disturbance calls.  This was universal among all my liberal colleagues.  How is that possible?

When conquering a country, the first thing you do is control the media or destroy it.

Are we under attack?

Social Media, a tool for Anarchist

 

We learned yesterday that several Russian Trolls tried to mess with the election process.  We learned that not only have they been active in spreading propaganda on Social media but they simultaneously staged rallies in the same town, the same day one for Trump, and one right in front of his building against trump.  These people were well funded so they could pay for protestors.  Did you know that you can rent a protestor?  Just tell then what to protest and pay them and off they go.
The goal is simple, stir up the emotions on both side of the aisle keeping Americans divided.

Many of you probably have, (had) friends that voted for the other guy, and you no longer are talking with them.  I am guilty of this, and I admit it!  I have blocked them as their hatred is intolerable!  The vile postings are unthinkable.  I don’t need friends like that.  Toxic friendships are a drain on your health, take my advice and shed yourself of them.

If and when they see the light, you can decide if you want them back in your life or not.

Truthfully I have more respect for those who vote, than those who don’t and then bitch about the turnout.  Many of these of which I spoke did not vote, they had some lame excuse.

If an anarchist ties an emotional debate to a polarizing figure or topic, they can create chaos in any country, not just this one.

Many of the volatile actions in 2017 were the work of this group.  Towns were destroyed, people were injured, one killed, and yet they don’t care.  Their job is to divide this country.

Last week we lost 17 beautiful humans to the acts of a cowardly nut job.   The FBI dropped the ball, and they admitted as much.  Americans had “seen something and said something” many times regarding this person, and nobody acted.  39 trips to his house on domestic disturbance calls and local law enforcement did not put his name in the national database so he could not purchase guns.  The laws that the left are pushing for, while exploiting any media or person that they can, failed.

Today “Emma” was trending on social media.  Emma has become the latest pawn for the left or possibly anarchist to sow the seeds of discontent even further.  She spoke to the crowd drawing cheers as she lambasted the president and the NRA.  Clearly, this is not the issue, but the people who exploited this child using her raw emotions to push voters to vote anti trump anti-NRA, in the midterm don’t care about the facts.  They have an agenda to disarm Americans, and the trolls were also there pushing their own brand of hatred.

Certainly, unwitting Americans will fall into the trap as this is an emotional time.  What happened is terrible, but the failure was not the NRA or Trump.  It was the higher-ups at the FBI and local law enforcement who are not communicating with one another.

Social media is helpful, but it is also a way for anarchists to screw up any country that has unfettered access to it.  To make matters worse, the MSM plays into the conversation, arguing that false premise that this is somehow a failure of the NRA or Trump.

I wonder, are there no levels of malevolence that the MSM will not stoop to, to destroy this president?  They are deliberately assisting in and spreading a false narrative while exploiting the raw emotions of a child! I guess they look at it as ratings and messing with the mid-term elections.  All is fair in love and war and defeating Trump!

The real issue or the cause was a failure at the FBI and local law enforcement.  This was a similar problem with the shooting in Texas at the church.  So Emma and CNN and anyone else that really wants to fix things; If the FBI missed this and others, what else is falling through the cracks? Start asking those questions and stop diverting the cause to something that it is not.

# StopTheHate, love one another and don’t do the job of the anarchist.  If CNN and MSNBC cannot help themselves, at least you the public can dig a little and find the truth instead of propaganda.

If Trump is the problem, I will tell you.  If he does something right, I may blog about that as well. I am no sycophant for any administration or denomination thereof!  I think it has something to do with journalistic integrity.  Just the fact ma’am just the facts!

The two-party system is a flawed design and we should re-think it! Shirts against Skins is hardly a way to run a country.

Naughty Novels

Wherever you find love you should hang on to it!

Perpetual Palpitation 

As I stated in an earlier blog, I have tried my hand at a few stories with adult content.

The reasons are many but suffice it to say, I enjoy books with a story, a plot and hopefully an unpredictable trope or two.

I recently noticed an uptick in sales of Perpetual Palpitation.

If you have read this book, Thanks so much!

Perpetual Palpitation or forever and heartbeats   One could and should interpret this to Love Always.

After a brutal divorce, instigated by his wife of many years, Ben decided he must change his course in life.  Spending his early years starting and building a mega-business, he had no time for himself and certainly no time for his young family.  Not even aware that his daughter was not really his, Ben buries himself in his work until one day he is served with divorce papers.

Selling the company per the divorce decree, Ben takes his half of their fortune, packs his car with some clothes and his laptop; and leaves California in his rearview mirror.  With no destination in mind, he only heads east.

Several days later Ben ends up on Amelia Island; he simply ran out of road away from his past.

Finding a beach house to rent, he pulls out his laptop and seeks to do that which he has always dreamt of, writing a book much like the Sherlock Holmes novels he loved as a young person.

Ideas whirl around in his head as he decides to take in some of the local culture.

Dr. Stein, a world famous heart surgeon, is also part of the culture that Ben runs into in a pub.  She is there because she lost one of her patients to greed and unjust laws.  Fate plays a role as the two become inseparable over time.

Dr. Stein has a dark secret which pushes Ben to the limits of his prudish ways.  Adjusting to who they are together, Ben and Juliet weave the tapestry of modern-day life into a story that will live for the ages.

This novel is an adult novel, but there is much more story than naughtiness.  Taking many out of their comfort zone and adding all sorts of twist and turns into the story, you might not be able to predict where it will end up.

The characters will tell you the story in their words.  My keen wit and sense of humor will hopefully entertain you.

Check out Perpetual Palpitation and let me know what you think.

The cover art is a combination of an oil painting that I did years ago, and some digital magic.
