The Good, the Bad, and the Democrats

“All is fair in love and war and politics.”

I find it rather fascinating that our Democratic friends have mainly brought the American Government to a halt for 2 years, at a cost to the taxpayers of over $25 million and ignore the apparent collusion in front of their eyes.

Foreign nationals are and will influence the outcome of the election if we don’t have voter ID laws. There is not one argument that is valid to ignore this one simple truth. To argue against it is a blatant attempt to cheat.
If grandma does not have a picture id by now, she is probably too apathetic to vote anyway. It is, in fact, a stupid argument that only stupid people make.
The Democrats are throwing out red herrings of what they plan to run on.
Don’t be fooled.
They, in fact, are not going to run on their usual talking points as few are that naïve to believe them. Yes, there are some that will, but the bulk of thinking people know that the Democrats win by lying and cheating. They, in fact, use the courts instead of the political process to get their way.
“All is fair in love and war and politics.”

That is their motto, and I dare say that some on the Republican side of the aisle feel the exact same way. They are all cut from the same cloth, so it is not a stretch to believe that.

The old axiom, if their mouth is moving they are lying, is truer today than ever before.

The skirmish between the left and right will not be fought on a level playing field. With the Left wing news organizations pumping out over 95% of negative spin on the president, their goal is to build up animus, (hate) toward Trump.
Those who vote in the mid-terms will not be voting for the Democrats because of what they say they are running on but, they will be voting against Trump.

No matter who the GOP person is, the Democrats strategy is already hard at work with propaganda on Social media. There are more Meme’s making the rounds on Twitter, Facebook and so forth linking Trump and the Deplorable’ s to Nazi’s and other white supremacy hardliners that quite frankly represent a tiny part of the human population on earth, much less in this country.
If you want to manipulate someone into action, you do so through emotions. Democrats cannot win in a logical, civil debate. They can only succeed if they sow the seeds of bigotry, hate, and malfeasance and place the blame on Trump and those that vote for him.
Sadly many Americans have already taken up the mantle of anger. They want to be mad. They are ready to carry the Nazi Tiki torches and march on anyone who professes to be a Trump supporter.
Racism is the last card. It is a cheap and dirty trick, but the politicians have no level of debasement that they will not stoop to.

If their treachery started world war three, they would crawl back into their holes until the smoke cleared. Only then would the cowards crawl back out to see if the shirts or skins won the war.
They call it Hyperbole thinking that all Americans know it is just a game. That too is a lie. Americans watch the “journalists” on TV and take them at their word. Just plain scary how people believe what they hear on TV, or read on the internet in a meme.

  • The Democrats will not run on taking your tax cuts back, although they will if they get in power.
  • The Democrats will not run on Impeaching Trump, although they will if they get in power.
  • The Democrats will not run on open borders, although they want to get rid of ICE. Ice is making it hard for Drugs to get in, as well as the new Democratic voting base..
  • Why do you suppose Jerry Brown wants California as a sanctuary state? He needs the votes.

They might run on immigration using the poor little children that their parents sent off with child sex traffickers to the states but, they dare not run on issues which the GOP can easily defend.
They cannot run on the economy unless of course, they could do something at the last minute do cause it to crash.
I would tell you not to be fooled by the meme’s on Social media but too often when you see some horrific scene you act before you Snopes.

The memes are propaganda made up by the Democrats, or even China or Russia.
It is conceivable that Mexico or even Canada could be creating them as Trump is tough on all of them. They all need some pacifist in the white house. They desire someone who will look out for them rather than the interests of the American people. They need someone who would be afraid to question the motives of Putin or any of the other world leaders. In short, they don’t need or want Trump, they need someone who they can buy, or who is spinless!

If it seems outrageous, it most probably is propaganda created by the enemies of the right and indeed the detractors of Trump.
No, the Democrats will run on all emotional issues, and tell you that Trump is the villain. If you watch any of CNN, MSNBS or ABC or NBC or CBS they are all in the tank for the Democrats.
“Why?”
“Follow the money!”

To the many of you who purchased Presidential Assassins, I have some excellent News!
Amazon put out a tool to assist authors such as myself. I have imported Presidential Assassins into this tool and am in the process of “polishing “ the book.
The tool and subsequent editing have not only enabled me to make the novel read and flow better but, I have found and corrected a few typos. Watch the link and or tweets, and I will tell you when it is available.

If this works as I suspect, I might have to go back and re-edit and polish all of my 31 novels.

Again, stay tuned to this blog, tweets and so forth as I will be updating you as I go along.
Try not to get sucked into the lies on social media. Your friends and family who are easily triggered will probably not want to hear that they are being lied to. They may, in fact, tell you to rave on cat shit, someone will cover you up.

The truth of the matter is, if they cannot deal with your argument logically, then they have already purchased the lie and will vote for communism as it is the right thing to do, they were told.

Please note that I am an independent. I vote character over anything else.

As Always…Much Love! -TW

Ticket to Heaven

Is Heaven what you think it is? How do you feel about where you are now?

 

Do you have yours?

When the trumpets sound and those famed horses come riding from the sky will you be headed to heaven or the other place?

Do you think that there is a place after death?

Sitting in church this morning I was taken aback by a substitute preacher whose sense of humor was lackluster at best.  He laughed at his own jokes, and that was off-putting but, his message resonated with me.

My mind drifted to the polar express with the CGI version of Tom Hanks punching virtual holes in virtual tickets.  The bell would ring, but there was no sound.

We are like that bell, we ring, but people don’t hear us.  Why?

Reading the news today there was stern warning from some newspaper exec who said he warned the president that taking on the media would lead to violence.

Make no mistake about it there is a war in this country and others.  The dichotomy is still between the haves and the have-nots, and it is exacerbated by the media and the power brokers who are losing their grip on the throne or that fabled ring that was “my precious!”

The elite have been in power so long that those threats to their supremacy is now real, so the weapons of war have been elevated to Defcon 2.  Nobody is safe in this war as the minions of darkness pull no punches.  They have mobilized their armies, and nobody is immune from their evil purpose.

The media is behind the power brokers, and those power brokers or the elite do not differentiate themselves with that famous R or D.  They are in fact the entrenched who have spent millions of dollars for jobs that pay $150K a year.  They are the few who have their own set of laws that make them better than you or I.  Using tax dollars to pay off sexual harassment victims is only the very veneer of their treachery.

Pandering to those that are not informed, or woefully misinformed by a failed education system, the power brokers are now looking to import a new class of voters as most Americans can see through the haze of purple Kool-aide and in fact have been the benefactor of tax cuts.  Most Americans have seen their part of the world improve and can see the benefit of a non-nuclear Korea.  They also understand that talking with the Russians vs. lobbing nukes with them is a good thing.

Only the creatures of the swamp see this is a bad thing as there are enormous amounts money to be made peddling hate. Much like there is considerable money to be made treating a disease vs. curing it, nobody in power wants either.  Treat or control the condition or opposition but, do not do away with it.

This is the sad reality that we face today, and it is all about hate and fear vs. love.

The rhetoric on the left is so hyper-partisan that people without a dog in the fight have hatred for our president.  Some foolish people in London created a balloon in the likeness of our president as big baby version of Trump. Under the guidance of and permission by the leadership of the mayor of London, flew that balloon during Trump’s visit.

This is the mayor who told the good folks of London, that Terrorism is a way of life, get used to it! My cousin is spinning in his grave!  No, Terrorism is evil, and it must be sent to hell, where it belongs.

Love is the opposite of hate and Fear is the mechanism that begets the opposite of love.  Propagandist push hate and fear to manipulate the masses.  Once they push it, they tell you who is to blame for it.  They are in fact an agent of the devil and need to be ignored.

If you have ever doubted spiritual warfare before, turn on CNN or MSNBC and listen to the hate and fear mongering.  They are over the top negative and in fact, have not seen fit to publish anything good about this current administration.

4.1 GPD in the second quarter.  They reported it could not be done. After it was done, they have downplayed it and predict that it will crumble soon. Patriots, or agents of hell?

Tax Cuts and yes they are not crumbs Ms. Pelosi If they are crumbs why do you want them back? Yes the media is on her side.  Patriots or agents of hell?

Denuclearization of the rogue regime in North Korea  “Folks that is huge!” They have not said anything good about it and in fact said our president gave away the farm. Patriots or agents of hell?

The return of hundreds of our fallen heroes from a war fought over 70 years ago.  Did they congratulate Trump for that or did they say Obama got it started or perhaps you didn’t build that…? Patriots of agents of hell?

Getting along with a superpower who has more nukes than we do pointed at us… Trump is an idiot they said and they as much as said he is a puppet for Putin. Patriots of Agents of Hell?

Call me silly, but I think getting along with the schoolyard bully is probably a good thing. As one bully to another, I am glad our bully has a charming wife that keeps him in check.  She has much more class than any in the media. She is a patriot!

MSNBC and CNN have not had any airtime to these things and in fact, have “experts” on downplaying them as if they are nothing. Patriots or agents of hell?  C’mon you know this!

Just maybe we don’t need cable TV?

Just possibly we need to cut the cord, remove the dish, and send a clear message to Comcast and Time Warner, Spectrum, FiOS and whoever the hell else sells this shit! We have had enough.

Does the FCC have any control over hateful stuff like this?  It is not news it is Pravda!  It is lies covered in Yellow Journalism.  There is nothing objective about it. They are a pit of vipers!

Maybe we don’t purchase things from their advertisers, just to send a message that we are tired of being played by you dolts. (that is polite to what I wanted to type.)

What does it take to do away with evil?

It takes righteous anger, and then it takes love.

When you cannot have a conversation with an old friend, who happens to watch one of those other networks that spew partisan Pravda like rhetoric, the hate has gone too far.  Hate coupled with fear coupled with ignorance is a damned dangerous combination.

What is happening on our southern border is not immigration, it is an invasion.

We have tens of thousands of American kids who need those resources now being given out to people from countries more corrupt and feckless than ours. Mexico needs to be held accountable for allowing this to happen, and it is past time.  Should we invade Mexico and occupy them until the corruption is gone? Maybe we should invade DC and clean up that mess first.

Our government here in this country needs to also be held to a higher standard.  We the people need to send that same message and that my friends, is with love.  Whoever their sponsors are, let them know we have had enough.  Stop buying their products!

Obama showed us the way through community organizing.  Let’s show them the way through righteous anger, and then love.

Yeah though I walk through the valley of shadows, I will fear nothing for we are the righteous ones with the armor of God to protect us from these evil villains who hold our country captive in their evil talons.  Pushing their poison through that black cable coming into our living rooms, needs to cease. Cast them out, and you do that by cutting the damned cord.  Silence in the face of evil, is evil in and of itself.

What does heaven look like to you?

Does it have CNN, MSNBC or Fox?

You’re in the wrong place.

Have your ticket ready….

Can you hear the bell?

 

If you should decide to cut the cable, which I admit is extreme, you will have more time on your hands.  My latest novel is out on Amazon, Presidential Assassin’s… Pick up your copy for a very inexpensive $2.99.  112k words of thrilling entertainment for less than some covfefe…

Yes, I am a little wound up about the subject as I see how this hate is like a poison that you take in hopes that if affects your enemy.  It is killing us.  Hate is incredibly destructive and used as a weapon like the media is doing, is just evil.

Whether you voted for Trump or not, he is the president of the United States and we need for him to succeed.  If anyone is against him, they are against this country… Think about it.  Are the people you watch for or against him.  If the later, they are against the United States of American and that means that they are against you! This is absolutely true, so why are you watching them?

Not a trump sycophant, I would and did say the same things about Obama.  Full disclosure, I had high expectations for Obama.  I figured with him as a role model, these kids in the inner cities might be lifted up and know that anything is possible.  Boy did we dial a wrong number.  Racial bigotry is higher than I have seen it since the assignation of Martin Luther King.

Love is missing here, and we need to figure it out.

Thanks for reading my blog and following me.

If you look to the right you will see my twitter feed that is marketing my latest novel.  Think about it as you ponder what I have said here.  As always if you have some differing opinions and share them in a civil way I will happily engage you in conversation.  I am not about hate, and will not tolerate its evil seeds to be sown in my garden.  How do you like that metaphor?

 

Much Love -TW

The Poison Within

 

We take it, we live it, and it kills us… What is it?

I don’t really care what side of the political spectrum you are on.  I hope that you are not so full of hate and vitriol that you cannot see the forests for the trees which are blocking your view.

I want to tell you straight up that I am not a Trump sycophant.  I just watch the news, read the reports, research the facts, so I know what is real and what is fake news, and I have come to some conclusions.

There is significant news this week which we all should be rejoicing.

  • There is a real chance that North and South Korea may not be at odds with one another. There is also a real possibility that they will denuclearize, which is enormous! Yes, this is because of President Trump. Sorry if that offends you, but it is the truth.
  • Our Gross Domestic Product or GDP is the highest it has been in years. Yes, Trump again.
  • The Stock Market is at all-time highs Trump…
  • Black unemployment is the lowest in all of history … Yes Trump
  • Poland and other countries are finally paying more into NATO yes Trump.
  • Factories are coming back into the US …ah huh…Trump.
  • If you are working, odds are high that you saw an increase in your paycheck..
  • Trade deficits with other countries are now not only on the table but are being addressed… Trump.

I could go on for this entire blog about how this country is in a better place, but yet if you listen to CNN or MSNBC, they would have you believe that we are on the brink of nuclear holocaust with everyone. They are so corrupt and so biased it begs the question of why anyone still watches them.

I think it is because it feeds their hate.  They want to hate. What CNN and MSNBC offer is food for the demon inside them that cannot accept the possibility that just possibly God can use someone like Trump to straighten up the ship.

In fact, the loons in fantasy land tell us that if you are a Christian, you are delusional and should be locked up.

Jim Acosta gave an interview regarding peoples opinion of the “free press.”  He lamented that because of Trump, people might become angry with them and want to hurt them.  He then went on to say that Trump supporters had elevators that did not stop at all the floors.  Did he learn nothing from the Basket of Deplorable’ s comment? Does he not understand that talking shit to half the country just might piss them off! Why he still has a job is fascinating.

Why did he say nothing about his news agency which prompted the DC shooter to try and kill the Republican senators on a baseball field?  That was the result of “Fake News.”

Yes, Jim when you mess with people’s emotions you can prompt them into action, and that is what fake news does. You feed their anger demon and stoke the flames of hatred.

The problem is, we Americans don’t want the truth.  We are happy being upset and angry because the shirts or the skins lost, pick your metaphor.  They have been told lies about the results of the election, and they think it is not fair.

The group ANTIFA, which oddly enough is a fascist organization consisting of spoiled college kids and loony professors out of touch with reality, cannot accept that the world does not revolve around them. They have been lied to by idiotic professors who have probably ruined their brains by smoking too much pot or just possibly they too are drinking the Kool-Aid of CNN and MSNBC or Marx.

This is not, however, a friendly game of dodgeball. In the end, we are all on the same team.  We, you and I are on the same side.  Only when we recognize that there is incredible bias in the media can we look at the facts and not what some talking head tells us to think.

It is as simple as this.  If you want to take over a country you merely take over the media.  You don’t allow outside voices in to distract from your message touting your agenda. You must, in fact, control the narrative while discrediting the opposition at all cost.

When the dust settles, we will learn that the FBI and the DOJ were horribly corrupt during this last election and complicit in the now current Russia probe which is distracting the president in terribly dangerous times.  We will find that those that are crying the loudest are most probably the most corrupt and they are afraid of being discovered, much like the Clinton dynasty or the Kennedy Dynasty was.

This will be about more than a blue dress but about millions of dollars for pay to play opportunities.  This will be about money laundering and a whole host of illegal activities by a class of people who live by a different set of laws than you and I. This, in fact, would be the swamp.  The swamp creatures protect their own and they are ensconced in the highest of offices in the land, and that includes places outside the US.  You can tell who they are by how they truly feel about the constitution. Not so much by their words but by their actions.

Currently, this is all about the mid-terms and polluting the voters’ minds with falsehoods and outright lies. I suppose this is politics, but I must tell you that it stinks! Americans are the victims of this false narrative.  The schism between family and friends who differ on political ideologies, most probably formed by what news channel you watch is real. Ask yourself why the coasts are blue and the heartland is red.

I watch social media and people that were once mildly interested in politics are now so easily triggered and are so polarized that they will spit on you if you disagree with them.  Whatever happened to social discord?  Why can we not openly and calmly talk about the issues?  The answer is simple.  When the facts come up, those on the extreme left only have how they feel about it, and the facts do not support their feeling.

I have been unfriended by some as I don’t hide my beliefs.  I have been called names by some which when it gets to that point it is because they don’t have a good argument, so they just call names. It is, in fact, childish and petulant and I have no time for such foolishness.

I am happy to debate the facts just make sure that you have them and not some garbage from the destroy Trump media outlets.

If you look around, you can see that things are better.  You can see that it is like a dark shroud being removed from over us while dismantling the lies from many past administrations.

When you discover that the wealthiest counties in the country are all around DC where the politicians live you would think that someone with more than a few neurons firing would ask how politicians get so rich?  If you are a public servant, and you are getting rich, it is because you are a crook!

No, we blindly go along not worrying about the lobbyists who purchase favors from those that we send to DC to represent us.  They don’t serve you, and they don’t give a damn.  They are power brokers whose sole purpose is to modify the tax code, so it helps those who the lobbyists represent.

They don’t really care about peace in the world because war is profitable.  If there were no wars, there would be no need for trillions of dollars of military stuff.  If there were no need for that then there would be little opportunity for those who grant the final say so on which companies get what bid, to be purchased.

When it came out that your tax dollars were being used to pay off sexual abuse complaints by your elected officials why did you not scream bloody murder?

You knew about the casting couch,  even Oprah who arranged for young girls to go to Weinstein’s hotel rooms said, “They were all big girls and knew what it was about.”  Why are you so shocked!? Why are you not demanding that those who do such things be impeached? Why did Hollywood turn a blind eye to all of the abuse of women and boys?  Why now are they saying hey, this is not right?  Will the pendulum swing back to the casting couch in the future?

How is it that Facebook and other social media can remove content at its sole discretion?  Did you know that a majority of Americans get their news from Social media?  In this country, we have the first amendment.  That my friends is free speech.  That means that you can stand on a corner and spew out fake news or hate speech and I can do nothing about it.  Indeed; I will defend your right to do so.

Isn’t it possible that is too much power in the hands of companies which are not held to any standards?

Here is the truth…Hate kills us!

Hate and anger are like a poison that you take in hopes that it will affect someone else. 

When the media and other pundits spew out hate, it has a ripple effect shortening your life. Hatred and Anger produce something called cortisol which is the fight or flight hormone.  The more emotional that you are “, the easier that you are triggered” hence, the shorter your life will be.

In fact, anger and hate really are a poison.

I watched C-Span yesterday for a bit.  Elizabeth Warren was asking questions of Secretary Mattis  “Maddog Mattis” She spoke to him like he was a first grader and she the teacher.

How he managed to contain himself from bitch slapping her, I have no idea.

The people that she was condescending to have more class in their little fingers than most of those senators who were trying to score political points.

How much of the poison will you continue to take?

These are my Friday Night thoughts which I needed to get out of me so I could be more creative with another task which includes writing something besides political stuff.

If you like this sort of thing follow me as I usually talk about things which are just over the top. If on the other hand, you follow me because I write really great books, I appreciate that as well.

If you have a comment about any of this, please feel free to do so in the section below.  If your comment is thoughtful and convivial, I will respond in kind.

Much Love and have a Super Weekend!

Hello UK!

I am not sure why but a large part of my readers come from the UK.  Not only here on the blog but from my book sales as well.

I find it amazing!  Is it my dry sense of humor that attracts you?

I have a special affection for the UK which is actually quite diverse.

  • Some of my favorite authors come from there.
  • I love the sense of humor that seems rife with folks from there.
  • I am crazy about your accents!

Maybe we could get together and I could say “howdy ya’ll” and you could say something brilliant about afternoon tea.

I just wonder what a week in the UK would do to my linguistic skills?  Or perhaps a week down under.

There are a few personalities that fascinate me from the UK.  Two of them are polar opposites from one another and probably could not be in the same room with one another.  Lily Allen and Katie Hopkins.  I adore you both!

Before you run off thinking that I am mad let me tie this up for you.

They are both alike in many ways.  While their politics are far from the same their attitudes are exactly the same.  In your face, “I am right you are wrong, Fuck Off!”  Both of them are totally polarizing figures.  There seems to be little middle ground with them.  The more you know about them the more you either loathe or love them.  It is the later with me ladies.

I think Katie is actually very intelligent and if you argue with her and you make your argument with logic and intelligence you might score points. She is open to being wrong just show her with logic and intelligence.  The loudest voice is not the way to win with anyone, least of all her.  Katie, I would love to meet you! I think I have watched every one of your YouTube videos and I must say that the interview with you and Milo had me rolling! Way too much and too funny!  If you tell me how I can get an autographed copy of your book I will buy it!

Lily Allen is such a strong feminist I am not sure if it is a positive thing or not. I would love to know where these songs come from.  In my book The Girl Next Door I actually write a song in her style.  My leading lady channels her a bit.  The lyrics are in the book as the song is a large part of the story.  Thus I had to write a song.  The song is very much a Lily Allen type song.

My point to this is not everyone is all bad or all good.  Everyone is different and I think we can all agree on that.  Both Katie and Lily have strong personalities and neither of them are afraid to speak their mind.

I also like Amanda Palmer… She is married to another one of the authors that I like.  Amanda is so brilliant I think that she borders on insanity.  I love her, I truly do but she certainly seems to straddle that fence of sane or insane, (in my humble opinion.)

She does this TED talk and I valued it. I would love to sit in a room with her and just talk with her.  Without the pressure of being on camera or recorded. I would love to crawl around in her head for a  bit.

On a slightly different topic, my lineage happens to come from that area as well.  It would seem that I am related to Winston Churchill.  I had heard the stories for years but, I finally took the time to dig into the ancestry and the DNA bit.  Yes, my mother’s mother was the connection.

I wonder what he would say today if he came back and saw the news.  What would he think about what has happened to this country that he defended so valiantly? Katie, would he go Bonkers?

I have my own thoughts but they are superfluous to the conversation.

Anyway UK, I wanted to tell you that I noticed you and appreciate you!

I appreciate all of my readers from all over the world.  Whether you are here on this blog or you actually go and read my novels.  Reading my blog and commenting is a compliment to me.

My latest novel #27 is 3000 odd words thus far.  I think its title will be Gods and Insects and currently, the dark world of DC is coming to fruition as I weave skullduggery into the plot.

My issue with this novel is that it requires me to think in a way that I am unaccustomed to.  I have to channel a bad person.

The weekend is upon us. if you have the time, read one of my novels.  With no agent as of yet, the price is dirt cheap!  My most expensive novel out there is still less than a cup of Starbucks mocha frappe whatever it is.

Many of you are familiar with my writing as you have read many of my novels. Saga of the Starduster is still my number one best seller!

Reading my books is a nice accolade.  Thanks so much for that!

Much Love -TW

Not My Circus Not My Monkeys!

The news is my kryptonite!

Do you find it more challenging to write as the antagonist?

My latest novel #27 is about the abuses of influential people. Writing as the abuser or holier than thou personality I find very difficult. I am by nature a lover of people, not a person who wants to subdue folks and or kill them.

I admit that I knew I would probably face this difficulty when I started this novel but I did it anyway for this reason. To improve as an author, we must push ourselves. How far can I go? Can I embrace the male ego and find that heartless power hungry bastard that lives in most of us. Would it be easier as the female?   That ego I understand.

I admit that it is a stretch to think in that way. I have said before that your characters must be believable and relatable. If you ever watched house of cards my character right now is that guy. Maybe I should watch it again and try to embrace the power-hungry take no prisoners kind of man he portrayed. Personally, I think his wife in the show was a much better villain that he was.  She was cold and heartless but I liked her!  LOL

Both were the kinds of villains that you love to hate, but yet you want them to succeed.

I honestly am sorry that he got caught up in the MeToo crap. I call it crap because that is what it was and is. Women are going to be damaged by this movement in ways that they cannot begin to fathom. We are allowing a victim mentality to take hold. I got news for you, women are strong and robust and can damn well say no! I don’t understand this “Don’t make a joke or I will be a victim and go to HR!”

In most of my novels, women are the stronger of the characters as that is how they are in life. If some fat slob comes out of the bathroom naked and wants you to watch, him masturbate FFS leave! For Oprah to admit, that is how you get ahead in this industry…FFS! Find another line of work! That kind of behavior is not acceptable, and I cannot believe that is lost on these Hollywood types. What the hell is wrong with you?

Rape is never OK!

Having said that for those that knew about this shit, and said nothing shame the fuck on you! How many people were damaged because of your silence? I often wondered why so many stars have committed suicide in the past. How long has it been “ok” to rape women while promising them a spot in some future film?

Why did Judy Garland or Marilyn Monroe succumb to drug overdoses? Those were only two of too many to mention. Could it have been that they were depressed and not happy with themselves for what they had to do to get ahead? “What do you think Oprah, is it possible?”

Silence in the face of evil is evil itself!

I cannot help but wonder how many will opt to hire a man over a woman to avoid any possible litigation in the future from a remark by a fellow employee. It will happen, and this metoo stuff will be on their mind.

I went off on this tangent because 20 years ago on the 17th was the anniversary of Clinton’s Lewinsky. “Listen very carefully America, I did not have a sexual relationship with that woman.” Yeah…Right…

Monika should be in her 40’s by now. Is she culpable for what happened? Should you know better at 22 years of age? Was she a victim?

Yes, she is culpable. No, she is not a victim! She was stupid, but not a victim.

I would encourage people in power to get some sort of body camera and have it recording when you are around and alone with someone of the opposite sex. In that way, you can prove your innocents of their guilt. That, of course, will exacerbate the issue of which I am alluding to.

Why should you need a body camera? I think it is possible that some women who are claiming victim status could be lying. I also believe that some men may be guilty of behavior that is not befitting of their stature. When the Congress has a slush fund of taxpayer money to pay off sexual abuse victims one has to wonder WTF?

Just maybe the swamp needs to be drained, and a light shone on everyone in it.

Today we learned that an X CIA officer was a double agent working for the Chinese. They had him under surveillance since 2006. They just arrested him today!

This person gave names of American Spies to the Chinese who rounded them up and executed at least ten of them, and some are still in prison. He gave all sorts of other secrets to the Chinese too, but we will probably never know the exact amount of damage this person caused.

On a final note, I as a writer would have trouble making this one up.  Chelsea Manning is taking bizarre to a new level. This is taking sick to a new level.

This person gave 750,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks. While in prison he decides that he is indeed a she and gets the taxpayers to fund her transformation. “It is too bad they gave up shock therapy.”

As a parting gesture of goodwill or fuck Americans, President Obama pardons this person.
Years ago a court-martial under the espionage act meant a firing squad.  Hard to dissuade bad behavior when we reward it like this!

Ok, I don’t really have a dog in this fight, that damage is done, and nobody with an ounce of sanity will let this person around classified documents ever again. Not so fast….

Someone with deep pockets is funding a campaign for her to run against an incumbent senator. Chelsea now wants to be a lawmaker. Ok, I as a writer would have trouble coming up with that one. She has already demonstrated that she has no use for the legal system so why become a creator of laws? We will hear more about this as she will get her 15 minutes of fame.

Who is funding her and why? Is this some sort of cruel joke?

Her ad was professionally created, this was no YouTube thing. I worked in advertising, and I can tell you that some money was spent to develop the message and the ad. The ad is dark and to me, caustic.

Politics is not where you want to be if you have a less than perfect history. Even if you were Jesus himself, the swamp creatures would tear you apart! Hell, Jesus would probably prefer dealing with the Pharisees and being nailed to the cross again, vs. dealing with politicians and a media that does not like you!

I actually have some empathy for this Chelsea person as this will not be pretty and will not end well.

I learned many years ago to opt out of controversial things like this as I have no control over it. As a trope to write about I guess one could add something like this to a story but who would believe it?

Taking my cue’s from the news, I suppose I could write about current events changing the names…LOL

No, the news is too toxic for me. Watching even a little of it just pisses me off. If I am pissed I lose my ability to create, write and so on. The news is my kryptonite!

In the spirit of the day “Not my Monkeys, Not my circus!”

Ghost Signals of Colorado Springs is moving up the charts! You folks seem to like it!
Thanks so much for supporting independent authors like myself. I work a full-time job and write and blog and market… One day I must check out my pillow and see what it feels like to sleep more than a few hours at a time.

I appreciate the follows and retweets and the kind comments that often find their way to me through the website http://www.authortwscott.com .. I read them, and as time permits, if appropriate, I will respond.

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?

Hello fellow travelers!

With rigged elections, one has to wonder just how sacrosanct our elections truly are.

 

How are you doing?  Have you had a good week?  Or are you like me, troubled by the events in New York and other places?  I think my faith in our government is a little shaken.  How about you?

I mention traveler because that is what we are all doing, we are traveling.  Yes, we go day to day at our jobs or our lives, but we are still traveling.

A lot of people don’t get it.  You see they think life is about the destination.  Even a lot of the Christians think about the destination of heaven or hell.

Life is not about the destination.

Life is a series of adventures.  When one ends, another begins.  They may be short adventures or long extended adventures, but they are adventures.

So what is life about?

Life is about the journey.

Life is about how you manage your day to day lives making the best out of what you have.

Some foolishly believe that the very rich have it made.  Indeed their goal is to be the very rich!

Money is a tool.  Much like a hammer or a saw, it is a tool.  Some of us are very good at keeping up with our tools and managing them well.  Some are not.  I just want enough as not to have to worry about continually doing something to obtain it.

The more money that you have, the more people will find a way to get it from you.  If you were to win the lottery let’s say, do you have any idea how many “friends” you would suddenly have?

Every charity of the world would play to your emotions trying to extract some part of your windfall.

Your family would also be at your door.

No, I do not play the lottery.  Firstly, I understand math and statistics.

The lottery is a “stupid tax.” Let me say that another way, the lottery is designed to take money away from people who don’t understand math or statistics.

Casinos are also for the folks who don’t understand math.

All games of chance are geared for the house to win. All of those one-armed bandits are wired together to a network of computers.  Some programmer writes the algorithms that tell the many machines out there what they can pay out on any given time.

They must have some payouts, or people would not go.  They don’t pay for those fancy casinos with their own money…  In short, its rigged.

You’re best chances or odds if you will are on games that are not electronic.  Poker, Keno, Roulette to name a few.  The odds are still against you but, not as bad as the one-armed bandits.

I talk about the game of chance and poker and our government because of the revelations of this week.  Bernie was cheated.   To be absolutely fair, Bernie was wheeling and dealing toward to end of the primary.  He was lobbying the DNC for his own jet, and a house on the beach so he would not contest the results and withdraw and of course support Hillary.

With rigged elections, one has to wonder just how sacrosanct our elections truly are.

There are governments in the world today who rig elections to stay in power, are we doing that?

The Clinton machine cheated millions of Americans who voted for Bernie.  The mainstream media is downplaying it or not giving it any airtime.  Liberal talking heads are spinning this behavior as usual!

Donna Brazil who is the whistleblower is the same person who before the debate gave Hillary the questions that she would be asked during the debate.  Who are these people that we elected?

Why is she telling all now?  She wrote a book and is marketing it.  She was part of the machine and is now trying to get rich.

I try not to focus on this too much as there is little that I can do about it.  I think that the media should be reporting the news and not be making up the news.  I believe that Yellow Journalism is alive and well in this country.

  • If you supported Bernie Sanders your vote was stolen.
  • If you supported Martin O’Malley your vote was stolen.
  • This is banana republic kind of stuff, and it happened here!
  • Do you have feelings or thoughts about this?

How do we stop it from happening again?  That is the real question.  Was there an oversight process and if so, how did it fail?

I should be working on my novel, and I am writing a blog.  Have you ever tried to get your head back into your story and away from life?

Currently, my story is traveling at faster than light speed away from the earth!  Some crazy computer has just abducted my characters!

If you like what you read, please follow me and share with your friends and family and whoever else you think might be interested.

 

Much Love -TW
