They Don’t Care!

Identity politics are tearing the country apart and they don’t care!

It has been a while since I have blogged.  Sorry about that.  I recently re-wrote Under Roswell.  Complete with graphics at the beginning of each chapter.  That took some time to get it published both in e-book and paperback.

Some of my followers have asked me for my opinion on what is going on in DC.  Truly I tell you that I have to limit my exposure to it, as I get damned mad which is counterproductive for a creative.

If you flip through the cable news channels many of the networks are now moving off the Russia fiasco as there was no collusion, to find another crime.  This is mob mentality.  It is why we left England years ago as we objected to the way the KING did things.  Serving a general warrant against his foes, the mob destroyed them while digging into their lives and all who he or she knew, until they could concoct a reason to publicly castrate them.

The mob mentality is the same mentality that was used during the witch trials, and if they haven’t burned all the history books yet, you can find it all the way back to the early church.   Americans and I suspect those in the UK where there is still a quasi-free press, are inundated with lies.  Our press, most of it is in the pocket of someone.  ‘Who’ is the real story?

Facebook and Twitter are acting as publishers, while only allowing the news that promotes the leftist agenda to proliferate among the citizens. The press was created to be that check and balance to our elected officials.  Currently, they lead the mob and are heating the tar and getting the feathers ready for conservatives.

“You cannot rely on the media for the truth.  You need to pay attention to what is actually happening.”

Anytime you want to know what is truly going on in the world of politics, follow the money.

The major flaw in our system is politicians are always working on getting re-elected. ALLWAYS!

The one exception to that, of course, is if they are retiring.

To run for office, you need money, lots of it.  How do you get big corporations and the ‘fat cat bankers’ to give you money?

“You threaten them!”

In 2008 and 2012 President Obama went after the ‘fat cat bankers.’  He threatened to disrupt their predatory loan practices.  “wink wink”

This threat did two things, first, it created the optics or illusion that he cares about you.  More importantly, it sent a message to the fat cat bankers to talk to the folks on Ave K and make sure they donated generously to his re-election campaign.

How did his threats work BTW?  Payday loans went from 471% APR to 900%.  The class of people hurt the worst by his deception, were those in the lower middle class and the people living in poverty.  And yet people still love him… Why?  They don’t care to follow up to see what the man actually did.. He screwed you!  I sure hope he kissed you afterward.

AOC and Bernie are now using that page from his playbook before other candidates seize upon it.  Now Bernie looks like he cares, and AOC steps into the limelight as something other than ‘totally nuts.’

Tucker Carlson even commented on it.  Tucker, surely you can see that this is a ruse.

The Dems don’t hate the NRA, they want money from them as well. Obama was the best thing in the world for gun manufacturers and the NRA.  I would love to follow that money trail.  One would probably have to start in the Caymans.

Gun sales were through the roof when he threatened to ‘get the guns.’

Politicians are loyal to themselves first, and themselves second, and themselves third.  When someone spends 19 million dollars of their own money to possibly get elected to a job that pays $174K a year, even the most doltish among you should see through the smokescreen of the green curtain.  They are mostly all frauds, and you buy their garbage. Yes, the wizard is all-powerful and will promise you anything!

Trump won because 63 million of you don’t buy their garbage.  He won because he named the enemy.  While he is not the smartest man in DC, he surrounds himself with smart people. Any good tank commander finds the best people he can to cover his ass.  Trump knows this.

It boggles my mind why he is doing this.  Why is he not taking a paycheck?  Why is he allowing this constant trashing of his character and reputation?  “Is there money involved?”

On its face, he appears very altruistic, is he? If he is truly doing this for the reasons he puts forth, we should put him up for sainthood.  My skepticism runs deep, however.

Politicians, (most politicians) don’t care about you.  I don’t care what they say, they don’t give a shit about you.  All they want is your vote and will say anything they have to, to get it. Politicians use identity politics and any other emotional issue they can come up with, to secure your vote.  If they stir up some crazies who take their gun and shoot up some people, to quote Nancy Pelosi, it is (collateral damage.)  They don’t care!

Politicians live in gated communities, security guards with guns,  have nice houses and are leeches.  Most of them.

Term limits… Why?  At least in their second term, they would be more concerned about what they ran on, versus getting elected. Make it a law that they cannot be lobbyist after their term.

The absolute farce taking place in DC today is a political distraction to damage Trump.  Everything about this investigation flies in the face of the constitution.  The FBI has been severely tarnished by this travesty, and one has to wonder what the difference is between China and the US, truly…

We need a disruptor in DC.  We need someone to change the way things are done.  AOC is not the answer.  She is a lightning rod for the Dems, saving Maxine Waters, Feinstein and the rest from their own crap.

What they did to Kavanagh was disgusting beyond the pale.  Are they sorry?  The only thing they are sorry for is that it did not work.

I challenged some voters on social media as to why they were voting liberal.  “We need checks and balance in DC.”

FFS!  Trump had the house, and Senate, and could not get it done with his own party.  Why???  They only care about themselves, which is it.  As long as there are politicians in DC, and the counties around DC are the wealthiest in the country, you can be sure that the American people come dead last, where their lawmaking is concerned.  (Mostly)

Uncle Joe is not the answer BTW.

I personally like the man.  He has however been infected by the crap that goes on, and would certainly elevate those other countries while destroying this country in the process.  People in DC are out of touch and Bernie and AOC are prime examples of the fruitcakes that make the laws you and I have to abide by, while they and their ilk do not.

Presidents come and go, they have term limits.  Both parties know this, and the lawmakers most probably all drink beer together in a smoke-filled room while trying to outmaneuver Trump.

I would not trust any of them.  Truth told we are in a very dangerous time right now as there are unstable governments who actually think that nukes are the answer.  Trump has his hands full and what are the Dems and to some extent the republicans doing?  Distracting him with absolute shit!  They not only hate this man but, they hate you as well.  Not only do they not care about you but, they loathe you.  They will kiss your baby, and probably your ass at election time but, then it is onto who will give me what to pass this legislation or award this military spending contract?

Disagree?

Tell me why, and keep it civil.

Now that this is off my chest, possibly I can get into a better place and write fiction again.  BTW, thanks to those of you who have purchased so many of my novels.  Yes, I still have a day job but, one day it is my fervent hope that I can just write fiction.

Judge Me Not

 

As a writer, I do not think that I could write a plot, which is as licentious as we see playing out before our eyes.  One would need to be willfully blind or complicit, to agree with the amount of malevolence we are witnessing in DC.

Since Trump’s election, we have seen the Deep State come to life, to obstruct in any way that they can, his ability to do the job of President.  We have seen his own DOJ fight against him from the day he became a candidate, to current day.

The left is losing their grip on your pocketbooks, so they have deployed a hard-core bunch of propagandist, to smear everything that this administration is trying to do.

The latest attack on Kavanagh is sadistic, barbaric and just flat out insane.

When you watch the news, you cannot overlook the most hideous bunch of yapping heads, spewing out garbage to those that hate trump.  They feed on the hate and anger, and those in the mainstream media know just how to give them what they need.

Playing to the emotions of the half that voted Democratic, their job is to paint the Republicans as bad, evil people who will eat your children and screw your daughters if you give them half the chance.

The facts do not bear out this BS but, damn the facts, they just need to continue to sow the seeds of doubt and stir up the liberal base to put their evil hides back in power.

  • Is that what you want?
  • Do you want to pay more taxes?
  • Do you want the jobs to go back overseas?
  • Do you want to go back to building foreign countries up, while sucking the lifeblood out of this one?
  • Do you not see what you are voting for, is another Venezuela?
  • How blind must you be, to not see through the lies of the media?
  • Even the most jaded person out there must see this Hail Mary attempt to slow down the judge’s confirmation, by any means possible as crap.
  • Folks, if they can destroy a man by a mere allegation, they can do it to anyone, including you.

 

Tomorrow we might see some more emotional nonsense, including some crying but in the end, I would watch her checkbook.  Soros is spending Millions to defeat Kavanagh.  Why is Soros interfering with the confirmation of a supreme court Justice?

The world is upside down right now, and the left is pushing that, as the new normal.  It is not!

Firstly, a person is innocent until proven guilty.  When you besmirch a man who has already been through six (6) FBI investigations which gave him the ultimate clearance up to and including the nuclear launch codes, it is now insanity or desperation.  I suspect that any of these recent allegations, released days before his confirmation hearing are bogus, and a trick to delay his hearing until the Democrats retake the house after the mid-terms.

In my mind, they are weasels and should be ashamed of themselves. We the American people are the victims, as we have to foot the bill for this tomfoolery.  We have suffered through two years of a Russian Collusion probe, which has proven nothing, as there is nothing to prove.

The goal is to cheat the American people from the desired outcome of having a conservative in the Supreme Court.  They cannot do it through legal, moral channels so they are cheating.

Here is the real question that I would like for you all to consider.

 

If we believe that Judges are to use the US Constitution as the basis for their opinions on legal matters, what difference does their party affiliation make? This is my rub with the current system.  Frequently, the Supreme Court is divided on party lines.  How is that? Does each side use a different version of the constitution on which to base his or her opinions?

If they are all using the same Constitution, they should all come up with the same conclusion. It would be like ten people going out of the same building, looking up at a clear blue sky, and then reporting on what they saw. Our current bench of Judiciaries could not even all agree that it was a clear blue sky.

How many of them would enter into their opinion that “due to global warming the sky was not as blue as it could have been.  Perhaps they might write the sky was more cerulean blue than phalo blue.

One might even write that the sky was devoid of clouds, rather than saying it was blue.

What we see on the news before us makes me fear what tomorrow will bring.  If the Democrats retake the house, it will be by sheer prevarications. I am sure that if a politician tells you something that you do not want to hear, that they might be more honest than those that tell you everything that you do want to hear.

The left’s tactic is to buy votes by taking money from the middle class. They then use the different judges to get their ways, as they cannot win in a true public court.  The rest of the world is screwed up by greedy people like this, and now they want to tear apart the greatest country on earth, for their own personal gains or….they have someone else pulling their strings.

My novel Presidential Assassins is selling well.  I might have to write a sequel to it.  The news today is rife with fodder for a sequel.  I could include rape chains, witnessed by adults that never spoke of it for 35 years.  Now we have a presidential want to be, a young Perry Mason finds some desperate woman to create a work of fiction, which would stir the emotions of many real victims, of the Me 2 movement.

We cannot win on the facts, so we win in the court of public opinion or emotions.

The Judge is certainly innocent of the claims, but the Democrats need to buy time.  They need to buy time and make the Republicans appear as bad as they possibly can.

For the left to turn the laws of this country around by calling an innocent man a profligate, to further their agenda is absurd.  For the mainstream media to aid and abed the deep state, erodes our constitution, and shows the world just how stupid or greedy that some Americans are.

I have noticed that several of the liberal media, allow their guest to espouse the necessary propaganda while they sit back and just ask the right questions, to make the point. They do this because polls show that they are losing credibility.  “You think?”

I feel for the judge’s family having to go through this.

There are many things that you can fix with Duct Tape; stupidity is not one of them.

Check out my novels.  Let me know what you think of Presidential Assassins.

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?

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.

Much Love! -TW
