Who is building walls?

Walls can be protective or they can be destructive.  Why do we have trouble figuring that out?

Berlin had a wall.  It was infamous and quite familiar to my generation.  I was honored and privileged to be serving in Germany when it fell.  I have a few pieces of it encased.  My son chipped those pieces from the wall.  They’ll always be a reminder of many Americans and Soldiers from other NATO countries who stood firm until the wall and the Communist iron curtain fell.  The Berlin wall was there to keep people from leaving the grips of communist rule.  People died, shot dead by East German guards while seeking the freedom existing just beyond the wall.

The discussion nowadays centers on border walls designed to control migration.  Walls are up or going up across Europe.  This in the European Union, a bastion of open borders globalism.  These walls are not designed to keep people from leaving.  The purpose is controlling the numbers of people entering.  At the root of it, most migrants are fleeing failed states, failed social systems, and failed economic systems.  It is human nature that people have always sought a better place.  There is however, a stark difference between legal immigration where one is intent on assimilation and building a life in the chosen new land and the economic migrant whose purpose is furtherance of their economic standing and transferring wealth to the countries they fled.  The latter holds no allegiance to the new country and has no desire to assimilate.  Instead, they congregate in migrant communities, do not learn the language, and often proudly display flags of the countries they fled.  They become a burden to today’s modern welfare states’ taxpaying legal immigrants and citizens.

Open borders are the bridge to globalism the hope of the super wealthy.  They are the world’s self-appointed aristocracy.  Their wealth is their wall against the harm this ideology forces on the masses.  If another world war happens upon us, it’ll start where the last two did.  It’ll be between the expansionist globalist union that now wants to form its “union” military and the countries wanting to preserve their sovereignty, culture and heritage.  It is the logical end for one ideology or the other.  From the beginning of time, it’s the human way.

Walls, physical barriers or whatever term chosen to describe them are not a new phenomenon.  Walled cities, walled countries, walled estates, etc. are at least as old as recorded human history and probably older.  People keep building them because they serve the desired function of protecting whatever is behind them.  The thing about physical barriers, unless they’re freedom deniers like the Berlin wall, is they always have a proper way in and a proper way out.

Physical walls hog the debate, but it is a debate born of more destructive human made inner walls.  Ideological walls, cultural walls, religious walls, social status walls, the human caste system wall the elitists will never own up to, political walls and probably dozens more.  People hide out behind inner human barriers because that’s where their parents stood or that’s where the identity group with which they identify stands, that’s where peer pressure keeps them hostage, or that is where the ideology they embrace fits best.  Unlike physical barriers with a gate these walls too often have no entry points and for some no easy exit.  Either you are inside or outside.  Over the years, people of prominence, wealth and political stature built these walls thicker and taller and vigorously defended them.  The goal it seems is to ensure no one, or at least not a majority, embraces the wall behind which stands a people united by one ideal.  It is difficult to accept this happens without plan.  Maybe human, maybe supernatural, but in any regard not without plan. This is how a society, a nation, and a people destroy themselves.  There is only one America, but within its own borders it’s becoming Balkanized by human barriers.  America is in the process of committing suicide.  The rebirth will reside far from utopia and distant from individual liberty.

There is another wall.  It is the most lethal wall our country and much of the world faces today.  It is the wall erected around the truth.  The truth is systematically walled off from the people.  This wall is unique in that the truth doesn’t get in and it’s not allowed out.  It’s a Berlin Wall against truth.  We’ve seen magnifications of it in recent days with the inaccurate report from Buzzfeed and about the Covington Catholic School boys in Washington.  If you should search for either, the misinformation still populates the search screen first.

Our media once consisted of nightly news on the major networks, prominent papers in our largest cities, and a few news talk radio programs.  Now it’s vast and instantaneous and blasts information, right, wrong, and unverified around the world 24/7.  People running on emotion from behind those human constructed walls grab on to anything reinforcing what they’ve been conditioned to believe through their blind hatred and social indoctrination and as the adage goes, a lie circles the globe before the truth gets it shoes on.

Physical barriers securing our borders and protecting our sovereignty are not the barriers with which we need concern ourselves.  The barriers that are destroying our country are those that have pulled us apart and away from American Exceptionalism.  The biggest threat to our country is not the exercise of free speech and free expression.  It is the wall erected around the truth by mass media and and turned dangerously caustic by the ignorant and social media tyranny.

It’s not too late to turn back.

Toxic masculinity and all my rowdy friends

Certainly, you’ve heard of the new American Psychological Association’s Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men   It tackles the harmful effects of “traditional masculinity.”  Timeout.  Please define traditional masculinity.  Today we have 10-year-old drag kidsExamine the consequences of fatherless homes.  Yet, being a man and fulfilling the traditional role of father, provider, protector is somehow harmful.  Yet, in the name of inclusivity and embracing the world we confuse and likely harm for life pre-pubescent children.  I don’t know what the APA has to say about that.

Now.  Now! The company that makes the shaving products I’ve used since the first time I butchered my face with Dad’s double-edged Gillette tells me I need to shave away my toxic masculinity.  Here’s a news blast.  Not every man is Harvey Weinstein.  Not every man wants to harass or rape a woman.  Not every man is a bully.  Actually, most are the exact opposite.  Most men unconsciously adhere to a moral code.  Most men are not the Hollywood version of brutes and perverts.  C. S. Lewis summed it up quite eloquently: “The man without a moral code, like the animal, is free from moral problems.”

Do I need to replace my shaving soap encrusted razor?  Maybe I need to lose the shaving soap mug and brush altogether.  It is one of the few joys of shaving and evidence of my backward ways.  Maybe I’ll wax my chest and get some eyeliner?  I shower every day.  I do not cuss in the presence of ladies unless it’s return fire.  I already run things around the house.  The vacuum, dishwasher…  How much more do I need to give?  Skinny jeans?  Do you really want wussified, make up wearing, manicured, perfumed…? Oh, I know.  Back in the bra burning hay day Gloria Steinem declared, speaking for all women I presume: “We are becoming the men we wanted to marry.”  She was trying to turn women into men so maybe today’s more enlightened seek the opposite.

Suzie-Q pointed toward the Rocket.  Of the multiples in our house, the Rocket is my favorite vacuum cleaner.  Maybe it’s the name.  Unlike Gillette, it’s one of those toxic masculine names.  She then pointed toward the bunker.  Like a good Soldier unquestioning, I fully understood Household 6’s intent.  I secured the Rocket and moved out smartly.  Well, as smartly as my knees allow these days.  Making my way down below ground I experienced a little seasoned citizen attention deficit disorder.  In laymen terms we call it the hereafter disease.  That’s where you wander into a room, look around, and ask yourself, “What am I here after?” During my momentary distraction, I turned on the amplifier, opened up the media player and looked at my music selections.  I lost control of my remote-control thumb as it forced me to select Hank Williams Jr.’s, Born to Boogie. “Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon and I never back down and I love a good challenge.”  While Bocephus filled the room with toxic masculinity, the subwoofer was thumping and I was boogieing, mentally rather than physically, when HH6 peered around the corner and reminded me of my mission.  I cranked up the volume another notch or two and boogied over to the Rocket.  By the time Hank was Buck Naked I was still fully attired and the mission was completed.  Well, back to Beethoven.  It’s hard to concentrate on anything else or nap in the recliner when Hank is thumping in the background.

I know people who quit watching Monday Night Football when ESPN fired Hank.  Do you recall why he was fired?  He compared Obama to Hitler when he said that Speaker John Boehner playing golf with President Obama would be like Netanyahu playing golf with Hitler.  The liberal media world was aghast.  Hank was now in the company of the Rodeo Clown who had the audacity to wear an Obama mask.  For his comment, ESPN fired the Monday Night Football icon.  If that’s the standard, most of the people on television these days should be jobless.  Which, by the way, is not such a bad idea itself.  That is firing most of the people on television.  ESPN replaced Hank with successive female singers, Faith Hill and Carry Underwood.  Both amazing singers.  Who could not listen to Carry Underwood sing How Great Thou Art, repeatedly. It’ll put a tear in your eye.  Even a Clint Eastwood’s squinting masculine eye.  For as good at they are their efforts just didn’t speak football – at least not to me.

Six years after they fired him, amid abandoning sports talk for political commentary, dwindling ESPN ratings and subscribers jumping ship, they brought him back.  Capitalism.  Political correctness defeated by the bottom line and toxic masculinity?  Nope.  The new tune is depressing.  Hank is an afterthought bellowing out his signature, “Are you ready for some football?”  Sadly, it turns into a menagerie of artists covering for Hank and trying to connect with someone or group, I suppose.  You cannot improve Fur Elise.  ESPN’s attempt to improve the original theme does not excite me to watch a game and invite all my rowdy friends to join me.  I’m sorry Bocephus, but in my toxic masculinity tainted dinosaur-esque world view it flopped.  I hope they paid you well.

I am not ready to declare that Hank was fired because his presentation only appealed to the masculine side, but whose to say.  It was however a horrible business decision and obviously more women did not start watching football because they fired Hank.

Just one more thought.  Did you watch the death of the Star Wars franchise, also known at The Last Jedi?  Here’s the plot.  Every heroic act and every decision were made by a woman, even the one who used the force to fly through the vacuum of space.  The only bumbling fool was a man painted as the gunfighting idiot who nearly got everyone destroyed.  And Luke? A defeated washed up old has been whose successor is a woman.  Maybe Steinem had it right.  In my life, I’ve known and served with many smart, strong women who were also excellent leaders of Soldiers.  There was mutual respect.  In real life, Luke Skywalker, A.K.A. Mark Hammill believes it’s time to “let women take charge completely.”  I’m thinking Mark had some input into the script.

God made men.  God made women.  Each with a natural purpose. God provided us a moral code.  In our enlightened times, we’ve abandoned traditional roles and we’ve largely abandoned His higher moral authority.  The result of that is razor blade companies trying to define men and Mothers turning their little boys into drag queens.  Sodom ain’t got nothing on us.  “Well my name is Bocephus I drink whiskey by the gallon and I never back down and I love a good challenge.”

Why is Rosenstein leaving now?

I do not believe in coincidence.  Neither am I a conspiracy nut.  I read, observe, and catalog information on the cranial hard drive.  When I start to see patterns, it arouses my curiosity.  I’m told recognizing patterns is an indicator of obsessive-compulsive disorder.  I spent much of my life in the Army.  From the first day you learn there is order.  Always order.  Everything is kept a certain way and in its proper place.  People do what they’re supposed to do, when they’re supposed to, and to a prescribed standard.  After decades of such an existence, one might become slightly OCD.  Anything less than order and purpose is chaos.  When a pattern breaks, I notice.  When out of the blue a pattern develops, I notice.

Take President Trump.  He broke the pattern of one establishment globalist pre-selected Presidential candidate after another.  Hillary was the pre-selected one.  All the Republican possibilities were losers.  Trump is the outsider who defeated the world establishment, globalist, political world.  Against all odds, he won the Presidential election.  Heads exploded, news anchors choked back tears, and traditional politicians ran away from him like cock roaches when the light switch is flipped on.  They ran away because he’s the bull that ran in to the globalist china shop and immediately began breaking stuff.  He’s also a lifelong international businessman who dealt out of necessity with crooked politicians.  At the top of the list is probably New Yorkers like Chuck Schumer.  President Trump knows who the political contributions (legal bribes) went to in order to conduct business.  It could be they really don’t want his tax returns released.  He’s the biggest threat ever to the established political world.  On top of that, he’s been able to do what none them could or sincerely wanted to do.  He’s connected with the country’s backbone, it’s forgotten middle class.  He could probably topple that corrupt house of cards.  They know it.  That’s why he must go.  That’s why the Russian collusion hoax was concocted and a special counsel investigation started.  It’s a coup d’état.  Now if you take your news from CNN, MSNBC or the major networks you believe all of the collusion stories and negativity you hear 24 hours a day.  Not to worry, you will not be spared from their tyranny if they succeed.

Following the news, I’ve noticed another pattern.  I doubt I’m the only one.  Each time there is a major event or breaking news that that puts President Trump in a positive light and the Democrats in the dark, there is a leak or made up revelation from the Mueller coup d’état operation.  It always seems perfectly timed to change the media narrative.  Media lackeys are more than eager to run with anything negative and bury anything positive concerning the Trump administration.

Just as the border battle heats up and the President makes the Democrat leadership look bad there’s an announcement directly impacting Mueller and his operation that’s pulling attention away from the border crisis.  Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein is leaving the Department of Justice.  Rosenstein and Mueller have connections going way back.  They were primary actors in covering up the Uranium One scandal that gave the Russians 20 percent of our uranium reserve.  Mueller was the FBI director and US Attorney Rosenstein signed the order to seal the records.

Rosenstein had but one function during his short tenure.  Cover and run interference for Mueller and help to cover up the criminal activity at the top of the Department of Justice, by the FBI leadership, the Democratic National Committee, and the Hillary Clinton for Presidential Campaign.  Now in a few weeks he’s leaving.

If Rosenstein is leaving the DOJ it signals a couple of things.  Evidence is destroyed, cover up is complete, Democrats in the House can now effectively block further inquiry and can use the Mueller report to step off into endless investigations, and Mueller is ready to submit his report which will be illegally leaked to the press before the President and counsel have had the opportunity to review, respond and rebut.  Because it’s a hit job, a coup d’état.

Understand something you probably didn’t catch on the news.  The Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign through Marc Elias, Clinton’s campaign lawyer, of Perkins Coie law firm, hired Fusion GPS who then hired British spy Christopher Steele who then put together a false dossier on Trump with information provided by Kremlin associated Russians.  Senator John McCain leaked it to the press.  This is now common knowledge easily found with minimum research.  This is the beginning and end of Russian Collusion, but it was never about that.  This is what started the Mueller investigation.  An investigation in search of anything that can harm the President.  If you’re okay with this, then good luck to you in the tyrannical state where we the people, including you, do not have anything to say about anything.  The state where anyone who gives up their life to buck the establishment and anyone who supports them will be destroyed.  This is an operation any communist dictator would be proud of.

Why is Rosenstein leaving?  The real reason? Mission complete.

Told you so. Another well timed leak.

Does Hank Drank?

Henry Calvin Johnson Jr. is the Representative for Georgia’s 4th Congressional district.  Hank is a Democrat, not to imply anything untoward about the members of the jackass party.  Now don’t get your politically correct drawers in a wad.  I didn’t select the political symbol for the Democrat party.  Just for the record, I would not have selected a pachyderm either.  Although I could call it a donkey even though my extensive research tells me that’s synonymous with an ass and a male ass is a jackass.  I’m shocked and appalled that female members have not raised an issue about the clearly sexist symbol representing their party.  Maybe Speaker Pelosi, who according to a source very close to Madam Speaker, “She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding.  That’s all you need to know about her.”, should address the horrifying situation.  Hold on to your head Hank and possibly your posterior too.

During my extensive research, I’ve learned Hank Johnson graduated from Clark Atlanta University and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Texas Southern University.  He’s supposedly an educated man with a law degree.  The first time Representative Johnson came to my attention was during a hearing on stationing U.S. Marines and their families on the island of Guam.  The Congressman thought the addition of Marines might cause the island to “tip over and capsize.”  I watched this live and I’ve watched the videos again.  The next day he told CNN that it was just a joke.  No one laughed.  Not the representative and not the Admiral he was questioning.  If it was a joke it went over like a floatie in the punch bowl.  The Admiral does appear to be in pain like one trying to maintain his military bearing not allowing himself to break out into hysterical laughter.  A synonym for jackass is stupid person.  Representative Johnson represents well the political party with a jackass mascot.

On New Year’s Day, Representative Johnson gave a speech at the Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta.  Interesting isn’t it that Democrats are always making political speeches at churches and no one at the ACLU cares?  We’ve all grown a little numb to our President being compared to Hitler, called a racist and anti-immigrant.  Well, Johnson wasn’t happy with stopping there.  He had to outdo the other members of his party.  He said the President and his supporters are taking the country back to “a time when white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place.”  He didn’t quit there.  No, Hank decided to join the Hillary deplorables and Joe Biden’s dregs of society by declaring, “Donald Trump Supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early.  Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.”

Well Hank, was this another of your jokes?  Something taken out of context?  I think you meant every word.  I saw where you were treated for Hepatitis C for more than a decade.  Hepatitis C is a blood borne disease most often transmitted through sharing needles used for intravenous drug use.  Are you a junkie Hank?  It’s also transmitted through unprotected sex with multiple partners.  Is that you?  You know what else Hank?  Chronic alcohol abuse worsens Hepatitis C and makes it much more difficult to treat.  Do you drank Hank?  As I recall Congressman, you called Jewish settlers termites rather like Farrakhan.  Are you an anti-Semite?  Yourself a racist bigot?

People did not vote for Trump because they’re racists or stupid.  They voted for Trump because they are sick to death of people like you.  You do endless jaw jacking, are among the most privileged in our country and you do not accomplish a damn thing that benefits the people you are supposed to represent.  You don’t represent the people of Georgia’s 4th district.  You represent donors, lobbyists and take your marching orders from overseer Pelosi.  We the people are tired of Washington and everything it represents.  Watched the news lately Hank?  Look up Paris and you can see what it looks like when people have finally had enough of do-nothing politicians like you.

You denigrate the people who voted for Trump.  I’m much more concerned about the people who voted for you.  Take care of yourself Hank.  Be careful of those unstable islands.
