I didn’t read the memo stating it only works one way.

The Judiciary. For some forty years – give or take – the leftists have been appointing circuit and Supreme Court justices to suit their agenda. These appointees – as one would expect – tend to see the various matters of law and things associated with the ‘liberal, progressive, leftist, anti American’ view point. In some cases, mostly notable, those judges have taken an ‘activist’ stance and made binding decisions of U. S. law without regard to provisions of the U. S. Constitution.

Some egregious decisions and techniques include the infamous ‘Roe vs. Wade’ decision. The Supreme Court, stacked with liberal judges, decided murdering babies was allowed because the potential mother’s privacy was more important than the baby’s life.

More recent decision of lower courts have uniformly blocked President Trump’s authority as President. Oddly, those judges blocking President Trump’s actions were all appointed by the last president, none of the decisions cited any prior case law and all forbade the President to use his authority, while upholding the former president’s use of the same authority.

This has been going in for some time. The left has been stacking courts with judges who uniformly promote the leftist agenda without regard to the Constitution.

Here’s the curious part. During the second Bush Administration and currently, the left is screaming and whining about ‘activist’ judges, appointed properly and with due legal process, upholding the U. S. Constitution. The accusation of course is that of ‘judicial activism’. In plain terms, when the nation begins to follow the Constitution, the leftists protest. When the activism and immoral actions of the leftists is counteracted, the left objects such actions are unfair and improper.

Not just currently, but right now: For the past eight years, the left has been weaponizing and politicizing the federal government’s law enforcement authority to protect their agenda. Now the ‘memo’ has been released, demonstrating some of the improper and potential illegal actions taking for partisan political reasons, the left is again crying and moaning how revealing improper conduct is unfair. In plain terms, the left’s cries of ‘politicization’ is actually the Trump Administration’s depoliticization of the Attorney General’s Office and the entire Department of Justice.

Just like when the last president lost the battle to politicize the IRS. Does the name “Lois Lerner” ring a bell?

Why the Democrat Continuum is in a panic.

Leftists are very, very afraid as a group. No doubt there are some who simply haven’t grasped the reality yet, but one can observe the panic.

Consider: President Trump and the reluctant Republicans are about to enact the most serious tax alteration in some thirty years. Democrat has no other choice than to continue their lie about ‘only for the rich’. In real world terms, the Democrat considers anyone with a job as ‘rich’. Everyone is rich EXCEPT for those self-pitying, self-proclaimed victims who mindlessly vote for the Democrat.

The tax bill will encourage growth in business and create new jobs. Of course, the Democrat holds actual jobs in contempt. One either has a sinecure or is unemployed and collecting benefits. The Democrat is very afraid the voters who always vote Democrat get a job. That might cause the voter to see the real world and recognize the Democrat is NOT on their side.

Consider: President Trump is an actual leader. Not a whiny, cringing sycophant who crawls before other world leaders. Other nations respect President Trump and this terrifies the Democrat.

Consider: President Trump is pro-Christian. From what he says, the President seems to be a genuine Christian. He is in favor of Christmas as being a time of honoring God in human form. What a stark change from the last President who was a pro-Muslim nothing in terms of permanent loyalty. Perhaps a bit of a socialist. The idea of the United States honoring the contribution of Christianity since the beginning of the United States is simply unthinkable to the Democrat. The Democrat seeks a wishy-washy view of truth with no real meaning. There really are no rules and anything goes.

Consider: President Trump is pro United States. The duty of the President of the United States is to lead and promote the United States. To make sure the United States is industrially, militarily, morally and financially strong. In contrast to the Democrat ideal of the President being one to reduce the United States to third world status and allow the United States to be subject to any and all outside forces.

And the Democrats are panty wetting terrified over this: The number of those in the United States who support President Trump is constantly growing. We are not fooled by the Democrat controlled news services who only interview carefully chosen spokesmen of the left.

They really have reason to be afraid. They are losing.

Proof Positive!

I presume everyone now has heard of the church location mass murder on Sunday, 5th November 2017.

To recap, a man identified as Devin Patrick Kelley (age 26) killed some twenty people and injured six others at the last count I heard.  The mass murder was conducted around 11:30 AM at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Kelly has been credited with mental problems and aggressive behavior, including being discharged dishonorably from the Air Force and having been confined to some form of mental health facility.

This mass murderer used a firearm or firearms in this mass murder.  The use of a gun has predictably incited every liberal in the world to blame ‘guns’ for the actions of Kelley and most other deaths in the world.

 

However, the proposed legislative answer to the problem of murders – including mass-murders – as making firearms illegal or much harder to obtain – legally, of course – is undercut by the facts.

There are already laws, Federal and most if not all states, flatly barring the possession or acquisition of firearms by those adjudicated as ‘mentally imbalanced’.  The various laws use other terms than ‘mentally imbalanced’ but the underlying concept is the same.  There are already Federal and local laws prohibiting possession or acquisition of firearms by those convicted of ‘domestic abuse’, either as a felony or misdemeanor.  There are other laws in the state of Texas, Wilson County (Texas) and Sutherland Springs (Texas) regarding discharging weapons within certain areas (such as ‘city limits’ or ‘inhabited areas’), and murder.

In other words, if ‘passing a law’ would solve the problem of mass and individual murder, the problem has already been solved.

 

Still there will be those who wail and weep for ‘gun control’ and demand ‘we have to do something!’  I agree, we need to do something.  However, banning guns in an emotional paroxysm of legislation will not cease murders.

What can be done?

The first step is actually two-fold:

  1.  understand blaming an inanimate object for human misconduct – specifically hatred – is ridiculous and puerile.
  2.  understand a law does not prevent misconduct of any sort; a law merely makes such misconduct punishable.

Quickly following the first step is another two-fold action:

  1.  understand there are not enough and cannot be enough law enforcement personnel to immediately stop all violent crimes.
  2.  understand the intended victims are the only people in the place and time to prevent such violent crimes.

So, the facts destroy the argument of more legislation ‘banning’ guns.  All the gun haters have left is emotion and half-truths.  Why does this sound so familiar to me?

Hate Speech and Murder

On 1st October, an alleged single male individual opened fire with several rifles on a crowd of people attending a Country and Western Music Concert in Paradise, Nevada.  Paradise, Nevada is located in the greater Las Vegas, Nevada area very close to McCarran International Airport.

As most adults are aware, some fifty-eight people were killed at the scene or died as a result shortly following.  Over four hundred people were wounded.

This is a horrific event.  All the victims of the homicidal attack were attending a music concert.   None of them, to anyone’s knowledge, had ever offended the murderer or even inconvenienced him.  This action was horrific.  Decent people around the world are horrified.

As horrible as this was, and the personal damage caused to victims and survivors alike is the reaction of the Left.  Those who claim to stand against ‘hate speech’ and publicly advocate an ‘inclusive’ and understanding view of others.

One Democrat, California State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) made a Facebook statement, on his Facebook page, blaming and specifically including every firearms owner in the United States as being responsible.

Former Secretary Hillary Clinton made a comment of equal venom and ignorance by vilifying sound suppressors – ‘silencers’ – hypothetically.  Just for the record, no sound suppressors were employed.  Nor did the crowd react instantly to the sound of gunfire.

Even more disgusting were the comments by CBS vice president and senior legal counsel Hayley Geftman-Gold (formerly employed in New York).  She said victims of the Las Vegas mass murder were “Republican gun toters” not deserving of sympathy.  She was fired after the statements were made public; but her position indicated a level of bias.

It is interesting in this context to note her statement was made public in a Facebook statement.  She later, after being apprised of her indefensible statement, apologized with much more consideration of her words than her initial statement.

Her unguarded statement is frighteningly reminiscent of the attitude of many dictators and junta members of the last century in showing no regard for ‘them’ (whoever disagreed with the speaker or the speaker’s party).  She essentially wrote off everyone who wasn’t totally agreeing with her feelings.

Just so there are NO misunderstandings, this is HATE SPEECH at the rawest.  It is incredible hatred and undisguised.  One wonders how many other similar statements were made and NOT publicly reported.

In contrast, how many on the Left accuse normal people of hate speech for disagreeing with their continuing destruction of Western values and freedom?

In contrast:

In 2013 (no newer information) there were 6,056 abortions reported in the State of Nevada.  I’m not picking on Nevada, but that’s where the shooting occurred.  Reported.  So this is a minimum number, assuming everyone reports everything accurately and so forth.  This information is from ‘johnstonarchieve.net‘ and cites information from CDC information collection.

In other words, the murders of 1st October amount to One Percent (1%) of the abortions performed in 2013.  From another view, that was roughly seventeen abortions per day (counting Saturday and Sunday).  So in about three and one half days, the numbers of abortions performed roughly equalled the number of people killed at the Las Vegas murders.

The mass-murder on 1st October was hideous.  What does that make the number of intentionally caused deaths due to abortions?  And keep in mind, that isn’t the number of deaths caused currently – the information is four years old.

Of course, this is trivialized by those promoting abortion.  After all, those are not ‘real’ deaths, as the victims were not ‘real’ people; they hadn’t been born yet.  Who cares?

One wonders if the deaths of infants in the United States by abortion is trivialized by people like Hayley Geftman-Gold in similar manner?

Or, in the famous words of another famous (infamous?) leftist, “What difference does it make anyway?”

I should also explain the lives of people are precious in the sight of God, and therefore precious to me.  I am certainly not as good at it as God, but constantly getting better.  (Better than I was, anyway.)  I do not rejoice in the deaths of ‘others’.  Not other races, not other nationalities, not other religions, not other political viewpoints.  (I am aware some jackass will object I left something out in that last sentence.)  Yeah, at times I feel less ‘Christian’ than I should; but then I pray about it and get my head back on straight.

Stephen Paddock is logically a Leftist, probably Democrat

It only makes sense.

Being transparent and open, I do not know for sure about this.  But it follows from the known facts.  Consider:

The shooter in the Las Vegas mass murder intentionally selected as his target a group of Country-Western music aficionados.  Overwhelmingly,  Country-Western music enthusiasts are pro-American and therefore voted for Donald Trump.  One concludes the shooter suffers from anti-Trump or Trump Derangement Syndrome.

It is silly and illogical to suggest a pro-American would select such a target group.

 

The shooter made sure the mass murder would fit the pre-arranged claims of the Left aligned Democrat Continuum.  Sure enough, on cue, all the wild eyed Leftists were primed and ready to deploy the ‘ban guns’ paranoid delusion.  (Almost as if they were expecting the incident?)

It is silly and illogical to suggest a pro-American would damage the Second Amendment in such manner.

 

The shooter didn’t want to face his victims.  They weren’t real people to him, just ‘them’.  Very typical of Leftist thought and behavior.

All the pro-American people I know are rather ‘person oriented’, at least in this sense.  Very few are back shooters.  Pro-American people tend to consider the consequence of their actions more carefully.

 

The shooter killed himself rather than face the public, the justice system or the real world.

That is self-evident and I’ll leave it alone.

 

The last bit of known fact presumes Mr. Paddock was in fact the murderer.  If Mr. Paddock was deployed only as a decoy, scape-goat or red-herring, the actual murderer fit into the first three items and then killed Mr. Paddock to cover his crimes.

At the very least the Las Vegas murderer committed his crime to assist the Left, based on logical thought.

Time for LESS gun control

Everyone is talking about the mass murder in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Last I heard there were fifty-eight dead and over four hundred wounded.  Could be more by now.  That is hideous.  Senseless from a rational perspective.  (It probably makes sense of a sort to the late murderer; I might intellectually grasp the concept if I was informed, but I cannot empathize.)  I am horrified at the disregard of one human being for another.

As a Christian, I am directed to ‘love’ at least in the ‘agapeo’ sense of being concerned about my fellow man to my own expense.  Certainly to value other human beings at the same level as myself.  Included in that is the limitation of not murdering others for my own benefit, including amusement.

Manifestly, this did not apply to the murderer.  At least at the time of his action, he didn’t value any of his victims in any sense I would understand.  I do not claim to have magical or Divinely directed insight on his thinking, but his actions tend to give this impression.  That mass murder that the murderer committed demonstrates a disregard for other human life.  (From the circumstances one can rule out ‘just war’ or ‘self-defense’ as exemptions to the ‘murder’ concept; whether the reader accepts those concepts or not, they simply do not apply.)

In Christian terms, “sin” is disobedience of God.  God’s will and or God’s direct command.  Even without a Christian world-view, one can agree murder (killing another for personal reasons) is at least wrong, and ‘sinful’ by that criteria.  (If anyone disagrees, please explain.)  Therefore, murder, these murders is the result of sin.  At least for us Christians; non-Christians are free to theorize the murderer committed the acts because his underwear didn’t fit, or his parents didn’t buy him a dog or a bad breakfast or something.  (Feel free to disagree, but explain please.  I’d really like to hear.)

In fact, Jesus once made the statement about the inner being of a human (called the ‘heart’ in both Hebrew and Greek language and thinking) is the source of wrongful thoughts and actions.  I think ‘modern’ psychiatry would call this part of a human the ‘id’.  (I could be mistaken, but most all authorities agree there is a ‘central’ or ‘core’ portion of the human which to some extent or other directs human attitudes and actions.)

In [the gospel of] Matthew, chapter 15, and Mark 7, Jesus is taken to task – criticized – by a small group of Pharisees because His (Jesus’) disciples didn’t follow a tradition (rule of conduct loosely based on the Mosaic Law) regarding the ceremonial washing of hands.  To be clear, this was not a violation of one’s Mother warning one to wash hands before eating to avoid germs, but a violation of a ceremonial rule (possibly verging on superstition) regarding ‘legal’ preparation for eating. Ignoring this rule was not just bad manners or slovenly living, but a ‘sin’ against God, according to the tradition.

Cutting much of the discussion (read Matthew 15 and Mark 7 for two accounts of the whole treatment), Jesus summed up the matter by telling the Pharisees “Listen to me, everyone, and understand.  There is nothing outside of a person that can defile him by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles him.”  (Matthew 15:17 and Mark 7:15 both say essentially the same thing.)  Later on, Jesus expounds a bit to His disciples by telling them (Matthew 15: 16-20 and Mark 7: 18-22) Jesus said, “Even after all this, are you still so foolish? Don’t you understand that whatever goes into the mouth enters the stomach and then passes out into the sewer?  But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these things defile a person.  For out of the heart come evil ideas, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are the things that defile a person; it is not eating with unwashed hands that defiles a person.”

From this, one understands that external ‘artifacts’ are not particularly in control of a person’s actions or attitudes, but one’s own desires and intents are in control.

The concept ‘artifacts’ cause human behavior is difficult to explain and quite absurd in practice.  No one really believes ball point pens cause forgery, ball point pens cause mis-spelled words, flatware causes obesity, automobiles cause excessive speed or traffic accidents, windows cause peeping Toms, and my favorite, television causes insipidness of thought.

Of course, there is a political and life-style faction which holds firearms cause crime, especially violent crime.  Which is as silly and irrational as any of the above.

The mass murder in Las Vegas is indeed horrific.  As was the mass murder in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida in 2016.  As was the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995.  As was several other mass murders without rational purpose.  Reasonable humans want to prevent such things from happening again.

However, blaming artifacts is wasting time and effort.  Not to mention those sorts of mass murders will continue.  The instrumentality may be different, but the murders will be the same.

Redundancy

Meaning “the state of being not or no longer needed or useful”, closely related to “redundant” meaning “(of a component) not strictly necessary to functioning but included in case of failure in another component”, with synonyms of “unnecessary · not required · inessential  · unessential  · needless · unneeded · uncalled for · surplus · superfluous”

 

Senator John McCain today announced he disapproves of President Trump’s decision to free the U. S. Armed Forces of the fiscal, administrative and tactical burden of ‘transgender’ people in the Armed Forces.  Sen. McCain’s position puts him squarely in  favor of the former President’s theory the U. S. Armed Forces is not intended to defend the U. S. militarily, but rather a social experimentation laboratory.

 

Sen McCain also disagrees with the pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio regarding the Sheriff’s conviction of purely political ‘violations’.

 

My comments to the Senator from Arizona:  Relax, John; we all know you are a RINO and hate all contributing to the well being of the United States.  You can quit proving it.

 

Perhaps he should show some honesty and publicly change his political party affiliation.
