It's a Hypothetical Melee Thing

Dear America,

"We drink all we can, the rest we sell."
slogan of a local coffee service company...
Cafe Moto

pretty sure this girl has used this opening before, so please, by all means, consider it just a free refill.

You're welcome.

as i was listening to a portion of a Freakonomics broadcast on my podcast app the other day -- following a suggestion from my college girl -- my head started spinning nearly from the start.  It was as if I had three cups of coffee and a red bull in under a hour, I only got through about 25 minutes before I had to lay down.

So granted, this may be premature, as I have yet to complete the episode she suggested...
It's title:  Earth 2.0:  What Would Our Economy Look Like?

But let me just jump right to it --

And I apologize if using the word hate is too strong, okay Katy Perry?   
[Wait.  No,  I don't....as she says, “Cuz I think like, ....the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders, like, we all need to just co-exist.”]

Oh Katy, wake up and smell the coffee.

But let's not let that episode featuring total delusional, celebrity, stupidity distract us, K?

Back to the hypothetical situation, mapped out by the intellectuals and economists on Freakonomics -- their aim was to divine a new world economy -- hypothetically, of course -- if given a brand new Earth and could start all over in perfect harmony.....

....taking only the best of the best of economics, a population, and roll them up into a ball with lightness and darkness taking turns over the course of a 24 hour day, and assuming the oceans and rivers and mountains and valleys would be scattered around just as they are now.

What would the new world look like...what would this Earth 2.0 economy be like, if we had a chance for a big fat do-over?

Sure it is fun to think in terms of do-overs....I have actually walked down that do-over lane often over the course of a life time.  The beauty about it is -- by definition -- the possibility of a do-over only occurs after an experience fails us; it's beautiful, really, for it gives us a chance to learn from our mistakes, to make adjustments, to wage the pros and cons of brand new situations with fresh -- although now fairly seasoned -- eyes.

SO....Do-OVERS can ONLY happen after a mega-dose of real life experience throws us a curve ball and unexpectedly hits us right between the eyes.  And there in lies the rub.  We don't plan for failure; but oh my can it be good for us....with all that character building built into the remake, great and/or humble acts of cleaning up our act, and of course, making every intention of doing things differently next time around...oh the growth curve!  

And sure, what I just said can even be used against me,  to explain how Freakonomics even goes there for arguments sake  -- for rest assured, it's not only a good topic, the reality is, the planet is undergoing a systems failure of sorts; governments have failed; people have failed; we are ripe for a do-over and just how would that look?  It is a romantic notion.  If one is going to ask questions of importance -- this truly is a good one to volley back and forth over a cup of coffee.  It probably explains how Cafe Moto came up with such a killer slogan, too.

The thing is, you can't teach actual experience.  [Millennials are living proof...Those born between 1982 and 2004 have a real issue with understanding the elements, the variables, the vast amount of experiences, the stats, the inner and outer workings of almost anything revolving around our humble beginnings and that which became incorporated upon our founding, by virtue of America's Independence from Britain.]

But for starters:   To create a new world of utopian level economics of rather lofty ambitions, it would also require the complete absence of human nature, K.   For to err is human, right?   To err, to lie, to cheat, to be greedy, to hate, to hide things, to steal, to be deceptive, to be controlling, to kill, to sow seeds of discord, to terrorize other nations, to leak intelligence, to use an unprotected server to transmit confidential top-secret information, to hack computers systems, to be jealous of what other people have, to covet your neighbors wife or car, to embezzle, to illegally enter another nation and then make demands for health and welfare needs, to not understand the value of understanding 'we reap what we sow'...

"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
And let's add this:   now going back to replay the quote of only a few days ago, by James Allen, of the ignorance of mankind -- those who only see the product of something, and not the "trials and failures and struggles which these men have voluntarily encountered in order to gain the experience; have no knowledge of the sacrifices they have made, of the undaunted efforts they have put forth..."  It's like they are missing something, right, missing a piece to a magnificent puzzle.

The thing is -- America WAS handed the experiences of failed civilizations (Rome, Greece...) by virtue of a Constitutional Congress of enlightened men, and given a course to take.  We were quickly named exceptional -- because we ventured out setting an economic standard that would ultimately be copied around the globe, while doing so alongside a government that protected a free people in every way, and oh! while practicing a religion of our choice.  It was an age of the greatest DO OVER EVER!

For the first time, kings and the powerful elite of the Church, did not hold the power --- for the Rule of Law featured a certain Checks and Balances under three branches of government, with our representation elected by the people.   Perhaps the first Americans were not all angels, but the foundation of a virtuous life WAS taught in daily life,  a life of faith held together by precepts and ideals handed down by God as part and parcel of every step, every course, every road we take.

Government relied upon mankind to do their fair share -- to do their duty... to God and to country -- and do so in the spirit of the greater community we all shared and its welfare.

The New World -- the forming of America -- introduced the free market on a grand scale.  Anyone could create a product/service and bring it to market and make a profit.   The good things would surely rise and meet success in the mirror, and the bad would be lost in a sea of failed ideas, poor follow through, bad location, greedy business practices, unfair treatment of workers, lack of funding, a horrible product, terrible service, stupid corporate politics....and on and on and on.   And all this being said without even mentioning the word 'taxes'  -- or the difference one good slogan can make...you go, Cafe Moto motto!

 And yet, here we are, between the natural failures and delinquencies of humanity, and the obscene amount of government abuses, the free enterprising mechanism is clearly not working under the burden of multiple attacks,  and capitalism, as a whole, is amassing quite the bad rap (unless of course, you are a liberal corporation ...amazon anyone? or a social network raking in billions).   [YES, this is funny]

OH and here's a big one -- even a "small scale economy," like America's, is already 20 trillion underwater (not including the 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities into the future)...would this new world, EARTH 2.0,  just forgive all debts and start over?  If America has amassed this much debt with 300 million occupants, how efficient could this new economy really be under a burden servicing 7 billion heads?  [Maybe I just need to listen to the whole thing, maybe the talking heads have an answer for that.....there is that.]

Forgive me if I sound a wee bit cynical, but if given the chance of an Earth 2.0 -- what gives you any confidence we could keep to the plan, Freakonomics?   Will we be a planet of robots that just do what we are told?  Will we all wear the same clothes, live in the same square modular home, and catch a free uber to work, fully supported by the new world order under the hierarchy of the government elite?  Yes, I am back to my head spinning.

It's just such a hypothetical melee today, isn't it?

We could hypothetically talk about starting over in many areas of life, not just the economy.

But what is the point of that? Where does that get us if the actual means to the hypothetical answers requires an agreement of profound ideas --  encompassing religion, economics, culture....right down to the language we speak.  It's simply foolish to begin at  "clean slate" when we are already well underway in all parts of the world, including 7 billion moving parts.

America began to fall apart the day we not so hypothetically changed everything -- the day we began taxing the people who had a job to pay for the welfare of those who do not have a job, the day we committed to paying Social Security for the aged, the day we committed to health care entitlements and Earned Income entitlements and even free college for all ...no wait, that last one only goes to those who illegally cross our borders.  [Just another nod to Katy]

For an economy to work in America -- and anywhere else, really -- people need to be in full agreement of the rules AND be knowledgeable as to how wealth is made and acquired, how a business is begun.  And from there, it becomes a process to be respected and admired, so that it has half a chance to be passed on to future generations, for the benefit of the whole.

But let's be clear, charity was never intended to be provided courtesy of the government.

Charity and the care of others was a burden, a need,  shared by churches and family and community involvement.

Hypothetically, this girls wishes for a DO OVER post dated to about 1935.

I know.  It probably could be considered hate speech these days --- guessing  heartless bee-atch would come swiftly next.

The thing is -- there is more than one thing going wrong these days, economically speaking.  Even the guys at Freakonomics agree with me on that.   We have made a real mess of things, having madly, deeply, sadly, veered from our original intent and founding enlightenment.  All the kids see today is the end result....and there is no connection to the sacrifices, the labor, the factors of time and place, the exceptional expression of individual virtue multiplied by so many souls at once....even the requirement to sometimes fail, itself, becomes a means to bring us to this time and place today.

[Considering this,  how many times did we fail at inventing a really good lightbulb?]

The economy and culture and wealth are tied together like a fantastic, continually operating, experiment.  You can't just start fresh at anytime!  IT all builds upon itself, from day one until the day the lights go out upon the world.

It requires every generation to learn all about it -- from the day we bartered a wheel for food, from the day we exchanged goods for services, from the day we past on the family farm to our children, from the day we took over the family business, from the day we started a savings account, from the day we graduated from college without a lick of experience and parlayed that into a billion dollar industry, from the day we dropped out of college and parlayed that into a billion dollar industry -- it's all part of bringing together what we know from the past and what we don't know in our future.  Individual ambition, and talents, and time, then promptly take over, making every day a possible DO OVER day, the kind of DO OVER that is even better than the day before.

Does one learn optimism?   What about the level of ambition, how much does that matter?  What about the difference between a man and his business who chooses to tithe back to his church, and one that does not?  There are so many variables upon which a healthy economy stands...Can all these factors be factored into the new world, Earth 2.0? SO many questions, so little time.

An economy -- large and small, domestic and international, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health is already a prime example of  an ever evolving co-existence, Katy, @zuck, the Freakonomics folks and anyone else who wants to talk about it ad nauseam over a cup of coffee.  But the funny thing about talk is that nothing actually gets done, and a healthy economy doesn't know how to respond to talk -- it only knows the principles of On, Off, Fast, Slow,   Supply,  Demand, Up, Down, Stop, and of course, Go....

It is called the activity of every season under heaven in a widely diverse, super connected, highly dysfunctional operation known as Econ 101 -- the prerequisite for any possibility of a 2.0 to occur.

I know.  It's a hypothetical melee, one that began on a slogan and half a podcast, and look at me go...
pretty sure with a cape and a rhinestone tiara, this girl could save the world...tee hee.

Just kidding...

That job is taken!

And thanks be to God for that!

So now, it's time for the Memorial Day Concert on PBS....
My salute goes out to the all who have served and to all who have lost their lives protecting those of us working the nine to five.  It's so easy to take our ease of society, our comfort, our safety, our shelter, for granted, when in fact, America rests upon such grace by the grace of God and those who actually gave their lives in wars past and present, so that one day we can hypothetically discuss beginning a hypothetical planet, Earth 2.0.

It's a beautiful thing...how lucky we are, how lucky we are, that we can count our lucky stars.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's a Searching for The Presence Thing

Dear America,

this morning's daily devotional from Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young:

"APPROACH EACH NEW DAY with desire to find me.  Before you get out of bed, I have already been working to prepare the path that will get you through this day.  There are hidden treasures strategically placed along the way.  Some of the treasures are trials, designed to shake you free from earth-shackles.  Others are blessings that reveal My Presence:  sunshine, flowers, birds, friendships, answered prayer.  I have not abandoned this sin-wracked world; I am still richly present in it. 
Search for deep treasure as you go through this day.  You will find Me all along the way."
It's May 23rd.

It's also the Day After a catastrophic suicide bomber terror attack in Manchester, England, killing 22 souls, and wounding so many others, be it emotionally, physically, spiritually...

It's a day many of us wonder, really....if there be a Good God, why Lord?  What is this all about?   How do I go through another day with such evil living and breathing and having its way with all the rest of us?   No, seriously, this time I want answers.

It's a day when we must purposefully dig deep, unearthing the strength, uncovering the coverage, to fight back with everything we have... for everything we hold dear.
Searching for you, God,
searching for that treasure...
A couple of bunnies  usually accompany me, 
sitting in my corner window to the world, 
while I sip my morning coffee...
today, for the record,
they were a no show.

It's unsettling to hear that the United Kingdom is home to around 3500 suspected terrorists right now, having roughly 400 "UK citizens" return from the battlefield in Syria, after fighting on the side of ISIS. If jolly old England can have as much as 3500 terrorists walking around, how does that translate into the number of suspected terrorists living in the United States?  Is it like, 35,000, maybe?

It's realizing one of the lost souls was an eight year old little girl, who, experiencing probably her best day ever was also her last day on earth...oh my Saffie Rose Roussos

Searching for you, God,
searching for that treasure...
I can't see it.
why Lord, why is there a link 
to this little girl
 in the middle of my blog?
How could that happen?
Oh, Saffie Rose
 may you rest in peace little love --
may the bunnies surround you, 
may rainbows greet you, 
may you be in the arms of Jesus as we speak.

It's not a day like any other!
It's not the new norm El Rushbo, who is right now sitting on the right side of everything going wrong, as usual... and aiming to bring a sense of calm?  Um no.  Even HE can't handle this now; he's already moving on to other things and now  all I hear is a stinging ringing in my ear that I am virtually unable to shake.  Perhaps this explains how this girl tries not to listen to you, Rush, whenever I venture to write something.........Sing it with me, "You spin me right round, baby  Right round like a record, baby  Right round round round  You spin me right round, baby  Right round like a record, baby   Right round round round"

Searching for you, God,
searching for that treasure...
It doesn't matter what is tweeted,
it doesn't matter what the world's leaders say,
it doesn't matter how many thoughts and prayers go out.
All I can think about is my girl -- 
currently 3500 miles away.
I can hear her in my heart.
shshshshs little baby

It's a new world, alright.

It's a world where political correctness is going to get the best of  us...and I'm talking about your best, my best, my baby's best, your baby's best....it's all up for grabs.  And while this evil reigns in fits and spurts around the globe, these lone wolves, these radicalized Islamic terrorists, will march onward, one by one, unless we actually do something about it.  We MUST ACT FOR AMERICA.

It's a religious war from the perspective of the Islamic Terror groups; they hate Christians to the point of wanting to kill them, just because of the faith they follow; they hate gays to the extent of wanting to kill them all, just because they are homosexual; they hate and control women....being rooted in misogyny through the ages.  The Western World is under attack just for being everything Western -- for the civil rights of freedom and liberty and equality for all is the antithesis of the Islamic Sharia Law, the "law" from which these terrorists live, mandating the killing of infidels of all kinds, no matter where they live.  You see, there truly is no separation of Church and State in the Islamic world; it is one and the same.

Searching for you, God,
searching for that treasure...
At some level, 
we know everything we need to know
in this moment... 
in this moment after terror strikes.
And it isn't waiting for the other 3,499
suspected terrorists  in the UK to 
come out of the shadows waving a white flag.

It's like, what if we really do have 35,000 suspected terrorists in the United States right now ready to make a move?   Oh wait.  It's not 35 thousand soldiers....TRY OVER A MILLION!  If I were president of the United States, I would round them all up, one by one hundred thousand, and send them home, immediately.  No attorneys needed.  [And most important, the entire family would go with him/her, including cousins.]   And I would temporarily shut the borders down, too.  Oh yes, I said it again  --  lock the door, people, lock the door.

It's like, San Diego is not immune; this city has sheltered known terrorists...and to this day, continues to allow these monsters live here with nearly no questions asked (bear in mind that link there is old, it's from 2011!).

Searching for you, God,
searching for that treasure...
my coffee was good this morning, 
there is that.
And later today
this girl will go to work 
as if it's business as usual.

Even though, deep inside I know it's not.

But I will walk with you, anyway, God, 
one step at a time.
I will search for you in the trees
as the rustle of the leaves
speak to me.
And I know they will, 
just as they did yesterday.

It's just not a good day.

May God bless this beautiful world in which we live, the United Kingdom, Manchester, dear Saffie Rose and her family, the president of the United States who is scheduled to meet with the Pope later on today...
and you still think things are random?

Oh there are no accidents; there are no mistakes; there are no tragedies that we don't meet without the proper strength, courage and resilience to set them right side up as we fall down in the pages of history; these tragedies teach us something in the course of our future security within the greater context of God's  Divine Path, a path already lit with the Presence of Something Greater than all of us put together.  God is still on the throne.

talk to me, Jesus...
all yours

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Keeping Things HERE HERE in the THERE THERE Reality of Things

Dear America,

"Everyone thinks they have the best dog.  
"None of them are wrong."  
W.R. Purche

thank God we have the president on a world wide meet and greet, wheel and deal....am I right?

it's like, people, take a freeking breath, will ya...and when I say people, this girl is speaking G directly to the people who are out to take this presidency down, pulling it and the entire republican party out from the roots, while tearing the American people further and further apart -- completely divided by demographic and ideology, putting up walls of a whole nother sort everywhere and often.

The Left disparages Trump's plan for a wall on the southern border -- all the while, they are the master bricklayers and cement mixers between each and every one of us who go by the name American.

This is how The Right should be framing the message, for this is how Conservatives must say it, in order to survive!   This is how the Trump administration must illustrate it, for it is the difference between winning the next election and a possible impeachment, brought on by the war of falsehoods, misinformation, and the incredible reluctance to teach our children, and teach them well .  

There are good walls
 and there are bad walls:  

Mark my words, the walls are already up and they are not only within the boundaries of these fine sovereign "united" states, but they are so massive, so evil, so controlling, that these very walls -- constructed by design from the heart and soul of the Democratic party -- carry the weight of crushing us all.  And make no mistake....about these walls....oh they will fall down.... and it won't be pretty.

I would just love to talk about how successful the Trump Trip is going...so far, anyway....That would be fun. 

But what I want to do instead is square away something pretty profound, and that is how the media and much of the American people totally misunderstand who The Donald is, let alone how he operates.

Of course, who am I, right....let's start there there.

Allow me to answer that just briefly -- I am just a girl, her name is Gretchen, and this is simply a day in the life of THIS American girl.  I am nothing.  I only know what I know and it's somewhat limited.

Having said that, I do know who I AM and more important, realize that who I am is albeit limited in knowledge, and understanding, and experience -- I AM connected to that which is UNLIMITED in every way;  I AM  here, here, courtesy of the purpose under Heaven, knowing it is somehow a purpose connected to the whole each and every day  no matter how truly small I truly AM.   My talents and how I use them are mine, and mine alone; God gave them to me.

Having observed the man now for years, I AM quite certain Trump recognizes who he is and his relationship with this kind of Divinity, too!   In other words, having just come away from Rick Warren's sermon yesterday, TRUMP knows his purpose and his connection to the whole so well -- and more than that, we, the people, made him president.

TO which, all I can add is a sweet  'aw God bless him.'   
And if you say that like an eighty year old granny, then you will get my tone.
It's like that story making the rounds of Rod having said that 'he knew' Trump was already gonna fire Comey (before the memo).  For some reason, somehow, people are, like, shocked by that -- trying to figure out the time line, returning to what was said, and begging the question of what did he know and when did he know it all over the place.  AND FOR WHAT?   I could almost bet my life, that if this girl were living within range of Trump's inner circle, I could've said that, too!   Like DUH!  You just know these things by hanging around the guy long enough....

Comey WAS an accident waiting to happen, and The Left just wants to keep looking at it when there is really nothing to see but Comey's carnage made completely possible from Comey's very own missteps as the FBI Director.  [Even The Left knows that.]

The thing is -- Trump says all kinds of things via Twitter, via his mouth, via his body language --- it all comes courtesy of WHO TRUMP IS and his connection to his purpose under heaven; he is a deal maker, a heart breaker, a news maker.  He says what needs to be said whenever he thinks he needs to say it, to move things along....come hell or high water, provoked or unprovoked, with or without making what outsiders would deem appropriate edits.  He is always in the process of doing what he does best.  
[Hence, why he doesn't need much sleep...he is always in the zone.  He is always producing, for better or worse.  He is so in touch with his purpose under heaven, it naturally feeds him and restores him all the live long day.  This is how God works within all of us....when we are connected to the creative purpose within, the one divined by God even before the day we were born, we have one button:  ON.]

About the same time the news broke on Rod...the American people were also handed Trump's off the cuff remark to the Russians about Comey being a "nut job."  [To which this girl must say, amen to that...cuz as the world turns, he was; Comey was becoming a total liability TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!]    

But let's try to frame what Trump was doing, in that moment, in the same vein as we remember President Obama telling Medvedev, 'we'll have more flexibility' you know, after I'm re-elected...  In other words, the president is using his words to express a willingness to come together with a deal; highlighting that the past is past, Comey is a nut job, being as good as gone, and we are free to be diplomatic partners as we go about the business of leading our two separate countries...Like Obama did when he was president, Trump is playing the schmooooze button; now, talk about hitting  reset, um what happened there there, President Obama? 

Matter of fact, as we speak, he is hitting that schmoooooooze button all over the Middle East.  But again, we don't got time for that today.

There is one more thing to illustrate the Trumpster language....and it involves TWITTER.

Gosh, he can play people so well.

G Crib notes:  Trump said something pretty provocative, saying basically he owed his presidency to twitter...  To which, some time later, one of the founders of Twitter replied, oh my gosh, if that is true -- I AM SO SORRY.  
To which, this girl just had to laugh.

Talk about ego....Evan Williams....pullleeeze

It would be real nice if people actually did their research, you know...

Neighboring Objects of Two Things in OPPOSITE Orbits
"The Twitter thing"  lives and breathes and has it's life force with people, who are predominantly under the age of 40. 

 "The Trump thing" lives and breathes and has  it's life force with people, who are predominantly over the age of 50.


They are exact opposites!

Although this girl doesn't wish to dwell here in the land of demographics, the evidence in these two links explains just what The Right is up against.  Back to how we began this day, if you look at how askew certain groups vote -- it is clear the indoctrination by entitlement politics and victimization by race and gender and the lies developed by The Left solely to gain the people's trust and votes has clearly become a foothold in liberal methodology.  The Left is winning over these groups by building walls, using the material of demagoguery, and ridicule, to the extent of not even having the decency of listening to anyone who sits upon the grassy knoll on the other side.
Trump loves to say something just to watch what happens; ironically, given what I just said about the left, he especially loves to tease anyone who doesn't agree with him -- and that would especially include  the entire universe belonging to The  Left.   And even if there was no THERE, THERE evidence of a Twitter effect upon his election, he presents the possibility just to make The Left squirm; even if he thinks there was proof of a THERE, THERE, when there isn't,  it doesn't matter!  It's still press!  It's still engaging the platforms on all cylinders.  It's what he does.

Oh Evan Williams, all you kids need to get over yourselves.  No need to apologize for there is no there there connection of TWITTER and the election of THE DONALD.  None.

Now, my twitter account is, Speaking G; however, having said that, I never use it.  Never.  Not even sure what to do with it, really.  It just hangs out there in twitter land doing absolutely nothing -- might as well consider it dead at this point.  There is nothing there there ever.  And I Am just a big enough girl to admit it.

Here's a good question -- how about this reference to THERE THERE in and of itself?    Willing to bet my life nobody under the age of 40 really understands what is HERE HERE in the THERE THERE.  So let me take you all back....circa Benghazi.  President Obama said "there's no THERE THERE."  Nope,  nothing to see there, in the living and breathing lying talking points surrounding a video, courtesy of "the bullsh**ter- In - Chief, Barack Hussein Obama and the State Department.

The thing is -- I could very well create a stat surrounding just this one nugget of demographic brilliance on the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.  And I am so sure of things, I can do it with my eyes closed; I can do it without searching the world wide web; I can do it with the same confidence that a now President Trump can call Comey a nut job, and with the same sense of calm when Rod revealed  'he just knew'.... 
....Trump was elected by the people in America who recognized there was something THERE THERE;  Hillary lost for not being THERE THERE for the American people, for the truth, for the four Americans who lost their lives [and sure, for perhaps a few other unscrupulous things, there there is that that and that and that].

Let me assure you -- President Trump would serve himself well to find his inner edit button, but I am pretty sure that isn't ever going to happen.

and so it lives on.

I wanna close citing another good James Allen quote:

"Law, not confusion, is the dominating principle in the universe; justice, not injustice, is the soul and substance of life; and righteousness, not corruption, is the moulding and moving force in the spiritual  government of the world.  This being so, man has but to right himself to find that the universe is right; and during the process of putting himself right, he will find that as he alters his thoughts towards things, and other people, things and other people will alter toward him."

It's like, Magic.
If only every soul in America understood things for what they really are, how it really matters, and how it shapes our every single day according to a little blue book, As a Man Thinketh.  If only.  If only.  Oh to harness THAT and multiply it by our 300 million strong...oh my oh my.

Oh America -- the 5000 Year Old Start Up -- It keeps on ticking with a new CEO gallivanting about, and the world will probably never be the same.  [Relax... the same could be said for all presidents, right.]  

If we look around, we, the American people, are the product of everything and nothing coming together, revolving in four year cycles, rain or shine, under new moons and full moons alike.

Was Trump really the first active president to appear at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Bibi?  Wow, Trump is truly THERE THERE in a good good way; this girl shouts a raucous HERE HERE to that.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's about Bullsh**ters and Other Things on Shaky Ground Thing

Dear America,

"The thoughtless, the ignorant, and the indolent, seeing only the apparent effects of things and not the things themselves, talk of luck, of fortune, and chance.  Seeing a man grow rich, they say, 'How lucky he is!'  Observing another become intellectual, they exclaim, 'How highly favoured he is!...They do not see the trials and failures and struggles which these men have voluntarily encountered in order to gain their experience; have no knowledge of the sacrifices they have made, of the undaunted efforts they exercised, that they might overcome the apparently insurmountable, and realise the Vision of their heart."  James Allen
unless you're a complete bullsh**ter, right, Mr. Former President Barack Hussein Obama... and then, in that case, we should just call you Mr. Thirteenth Rule:  Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it...."

Here's just the beginning 
of the 
Master Mister List 
-- according to me, G --

Mr.  Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. [Alinsky's 4th rule]

Mr.  If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor  [BS]

Mr.  If you like your plan, you can keep your plan  [BS]

Mr.  I heard about it when you all did, through the news  [BS]

Mr. Let's blame Benghazi -- and the absence of security that led to the death of four Americans -- on a video, yeah, yeah  Leaving the details to Clinton and Rice, as Mr. I got a fundraiser in Los Angeles in the morning, need my beauty rest.  [BS]

Mr.  Let's use conservative groups as target practice on the down low... shhshshh IRS, you picking up what I'm putting down?  [BS]

Mr. Bin Laden is dead [Are you sure?]  and GM is alive -- according to Joe, anyway... 
Mr. "the world is less violent that it has ever been."  really?  [BS]

Mr. Let's send some money to blah blah blah and attempt to bump Bibi  and if anyone finds out, we'll just bullsh*t  our way around it and sometimes even through it.

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness...this girl could do this all day.

But today is your lucky day, I will spare you the potential list of a mile long and move on dot org...you're welcome.

It feels as if the Trump presidency is being virtually suspended in midair --  left totally unattended and hanging on a thread, it appears almost motionless and on a collision course with various neighboring objects of meteoric dimensions coming from the left wing media, anonymous sources of unsubstantiated stories, former presidents, bureaucrats on attack, and maybe the worst of the worst....the establishment that rotates left and right.   The corruption of a presidency begins with thoughts and escalates by word of mouth at warp speed.

And of course, just as damaging is the president's unrelenting and tenacious twitter episodes.  

"Even a fool
 is thought wise
 if he keeps silent, 
and discerning 
if he holds his tongue." 
Proverbs 17:28

But let's be clear -- Obama is the last person on earth, citing his shaky street cred legacy, to call Trump a "complete bullsh**ter."   It's like, are you for real player?  And just gotta hand it to People Magazine for the stellar distribution of enough propaganda to keep every water cooler across America busy busy busy with the flush of this sh*t, I mean, gossip. 

Mr. How dare my legacy be threatened with this bullsh**ter...  And damn you, Hillary...Courtesy of Breitbart, here's a good part:

“She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying. 
The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded: 
  • That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

The thing is, when it comes to the swamp known as Washington D.C., the entire area, and its inhabitants, only function on bullsh*t; there isn't a pipe large enough nor a spine strong enough to drain it.

Now, given Trump was placed into office on the belief that HE was the only candidate with the credentials to actually make headway on the restoration of the plumbing -- beginning with Obamacare, moving into building a wall, and redecorating the entire department of the Internal Revenue Service, it is a crushing blow to the spirit of America's future.  Where is the snake in the drain?

Not surprising, some of his most adoring fans are beginning to question his abilities....Ann Coulter.

"In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.  Chance is not.  'Gifts,' powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort; they are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realised.
The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart -- this you will build your life by, this you will become."  
just more from James Allen


America IS results orientated in every way.

Never mind the fact that President Obama's bullsh*t didn't seem to stink...it was either well conceived, better executed, and/or aligned with a mainstream media fully glorifying his every effort, every step of the way -- and THIS PATH, reaping nearly zero results from the winning guy, is quickly becoming a nauseating spin around the sun day in and day out... Conservatives, those aligned with a return to every ideal that made America great in the first place, are growing tired of the nonsense.

WE MUST FIGHT for what we want with every ounce of strength we can muster.

There is another thing worthy of note -- the market drop yesterday.  This, my friends, is a consequence of  nothing that Trump is or is not doing; it's a reflection of the sky is falling mentality within the media, and the perpetuation of untruths by the Left --  aka bullsh*t --  for the sole purpose of derailing a presidency.  Of course the market will show a result from these efforts!  It is built upon confidence; and if the people are not feeling confident, if feeling shaky -- anxious and agitated, then how else can the market react?  The outcome can be nothing less than the complete opposite of 'if we build it, they will come.'

And even though I hesitate to quote Putin --  this is what HE SAID
"But at the same time, we are seeing political schizophrenia is developing in the U.S. and I cannot find any other explanation to the accusations....I'm gonna have to reprimand him [Trump]  [for NOT sharing the intelligence]."   
Going on to say...."What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation, using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don’t understand the damage they’re doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt...”

Thoughts are things.

And America reveals what the people think about in America every single day; it is the result of our efforts, large and small; it is the outcome of our thoughts and hopes and dreams; it is the Vision we hold dear until the day it comes to life; it is the Something Great or the something not so great.

America needs positive thoughts X 300 million people and your prayers; and in closing, perhaps a greater understanding of something once said by President Ronald Reagan: "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."

God bless us one and all.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's About Amazing and UN-AMAZING Things

Dear America,

It's from the backside of a t-shirt @ a Trump rally,
somewhere in America, only a few months ago.
...And this is me,  AWESTRUCK; 
my army of amusing muses never stop amazing me.

happy tuesday

In the spirit of the great I AM who Lives and Breathes Everywhere and Often, UNCEASINGLY, let's just start here:  I AM becoming completely UNGLUED! these days, gasping for Higher Air in the midst of total Chaos.

And let me just add, if we were to consider the Obama Administration synonymous with "the Great Community Organizer-in-Chief (and we do), then it would be fair to say, that the Trump Administration is leading by way of the Great Community UN-ORGANIZER-in-Chief.  And Yes!  this is good; and NO! it isn't...for it runs parallel with the incredibly UNBEARABLE Heaviness of Being in the face of such attacks from within and without, above and below, the White House. 

Now granted, we are bearing witness to the complete UNMASKING of  America's "UNBIASED" media wreaking havoc and making hay upon everything and nothing...that we are sure.
See WASHINGTON COMPOST...Glenn Kessler's Twitter: "Applause in the newsroom as the Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute."

How about the Post, post THIS.

And let's get McMaster's take, take THIS... pointing out, "...Their [the adults in the room] on-the-record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources."  While McMaster doubles down, today.

Of course, in other news -- and there is some -- the DNC Staffer, Seth Rich, who was murdered just outside his home, allegedly after leaking documents to Wikileaks....Let the unmasking begin, beginning with the documentation of a rampant siege, including a plethora of internal backstabbing withing the ranks of the Clinton presidential campaign, thereby unmasking the clear intent to derail Bernie Sanders....buh bye bernie.  Of course, we need to mention, this story is via an anonymous source, too.  Wow, the forces are coming in from all sides.
Hmmmmm  To Siege: 1. the act or process of surrounding and attacking a fortified place in such a way as to isolate it from help and supplies, for the purpose of lessening the resistance of the defenders and thereby making capture possible.
2. any prolonged or persistent effort to overcome resistance.
The thing is, there is no question, the TRUMP Administration is UNDER SIEGE.

But if we are to cover the WHOLE truth and nothing but the TRUTH, it would be fair to consider this siege actually began long before Trump even arrived in the theater.  As in the maneuverings of the massive army of free radicals still active, still dangerous, still siege-ing, and boldly taking every opportunity that comes their way to demonstrate their treasonous intentions against this country; we are referencing the directives and tactics under Saul Alinsky, a regime in which every Leftist Lives and Breathes and worships it's rules and commandments as written by one of its masters of re-creation.  Because, you know...this is how they think:

 “If they bring a knife
 to the fight, we bring a gun,” 
Obama said in Philadelphia last night. 
“Because from what I understand, 
folks in Philly 
like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

oh man, to have the last nine years back, right?

What we are really witnessing, is America being re-organized --with malice -- from within.

Here comes the judge, here comes the judge, now scrolling back to the Napolitano interview with the beautiful Bartiromo:  He says, “The use of intelligence data for political purposes is a felony.” 

But back to the present (sorta),  never you mind that HILLARY CLINTON has been directly associated with a whole host of leaks and conflicts of interest and UNSCRUPULOUS acts, be it as a presidential contender or while at the state department (and BS, before the state schtick) or even as a wife of an Arkansas Governor, who would eventually become president.  

And yet for purposes of getting through today's news, maybe we should just start here: How  James Comey put it on July 5, 2016, and as thoroughly documented @CNN going something like this:  ...7 Most Damning Lines On Clinton.  And looky there, CNN was sorta sticking it to Hillary using James Comey of all people; ah yes, that was then, this is now.

And then again...
Maybe, just maybe,  how about we start with Leftists everywhere (wherever they live and breathe and have their being, make their living....media, universities, bureaucrats)  just drop their knives and see what happens.  Can't we all co-exist with respect, one damn good debate after another?  Like, you know, using our words and facts and arguments intelligently, and suspending these greater understandings into the atmosphere, the blogo-sphere, the media-sphere, for all time with a certain degree of enlightenment and decorum vs. the not so much?

[This message also goes out to the Trump twitter account...just keeping it real]

To which this girl must dwell for a moment upon something not straight outta Compton or New York, but from straight outta Proverbs:

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, 
but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails."

oh thank God, right?

And suddenly, in this moment, all of the many aspects of the complete un-glue-ing of me is coming to a pause, as a certain hush takes over my feeble and humble understanding of the many UNSEEMLY persons, places and things surrounding America and seem laser focused with the siege of unwavering attacks against her and now pulling out all the stops (with shots) upon the Trump Administration...  

[AND please don't misunderstand -- I AM ALL FOR A FREE PRESS.  A free, honest, open, intelligent, unbiased news stream for ALL is what separates us from places like Venezuela, and Russia, and Syria and France; and, I AM ALL FOR the Trump Administration to tidy up within the fortress of the people's White House...maybe a little re-organizing would be a good idea.]
...My anonymous source tells me that the source of these unseemly things are unquestionably UNBECOMING of being an American.  It's like, I just have to ask -- whose side are you on? 

But perhaps the better question -- whatever happened to being on the same side?  
.... and just thinking out loud now...like, as in the days of JFK, when he asked 'ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."   

Indeed; that one just never seems to get old.
This is the time and the place that all AMERICANS should wrap their little heads around those words and put it to good use....everywhere and often.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Cornerstones of Liberty Thing

Dear America,

"...America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers. When the pilgrims landed at Plymouth they prayed. When the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times, because in America we don't worship government we worship God. That is why our elected officials put their hands on the Bible and say, 'So help me God,' as they take the oath of office. It is why our currency proudly declares, 'In God we trust,' and it's why we proudly proclaim that we are one nation under God every time we say the pledge of allegiance. 
The story of America is the story of an adventure that began with deep faith, big dreams and humble beginnings..."
...Just a snapshot for the family album -- for more of the Trump commencement speech, @Liberty University.....hit this: May 13, 2017 .

So given it's Mother's Day, and given little miss gthang here just loves taking twists and turns with the news...doesn't  this soft curve in the commencement describe somewhat just how motherhood happens?  The triad of deep faith, big dreams, and humble beginnings align with a bang --  no matter how frightening the reality of being totally unprepared for such a big adventure may be; and no matter if the little pitter-patter of little matter was fully expected, maybe even planned, or not --  when that scrumptious little thing pops out, we step forward in faith one sleepless night at a time. [And no worries for the naysayers; God made it -- the creation process -- so natural and beautiful and wonderful, that even non-believers can do it, too...and isn't that brilliant and awfully gracious.]

For those of us who live and love and have our being through this kind of faith in God, we often compare it to building our house upon The Rock -- a foundation of principles, and precepts, and prayer, that was not only preordained in prophecy as written in the Bible, but with every brick and mortar and commandment kept, all these things combine to create the very cornerstone of our existence!  From the pilgrims to the modern day family, the story of America has grown 300 million strong, all in God's image, predominantly as a nation of believers (fact); and as Joel Osteen proclaimed just this morning, we should also recognize that each one of us is "God's favorite child."   For more of that good stuff, just go to sermon #725, "Knowing you are Loved."

But back to the family corner stone:  Cornerstones are essential -- for everything else depends upon planting that puppy correctly, right from the start.   It's supreme purpose is to anchor -- the longevity and security of something requires its unyielding existence and resistance to erosion; we are speaking of firm, unshakable, remarkable and indispensable, pillars of civilization kinds of things.

This goes to the heart of the profound and enlightened vision of our founders -- to co-create with God one sleepless night at  time, through a revolution and beyond.

And since today is all about mothers (fathers will have their day,all in due time my pretties), dare we agree that from the start -- the makings of faith, dreams, and humble beginnings begin to grow up, too, expanding ever so slowly into the roll,  revealing every unknown, with the same great American spirit that embraces risk and reward and all;  eventually, with a whole lot of luck, dexterity, and grace, crowning mom another family cornerstone becomes fit for a Hallmark holiday,  

Relating to all things household:   having the omniscience and omnipotence of knowing where everything is on any given day, from whipping up a splendid hot meal with nothing but leftovers and a well honed pantry, from having the capacity to understand the incomprehensible, to right the wrongs, and  even get a giggle in the most challenging of times, mama becomes the glue of everything and nothing within the confines of family.  In hindsight of my own childhood, even the little bit of yelling and the screaming could be strangely deemed something out of sainthood.  

[Just love this op-ed, Our Mothers As We Never Saw Them, from Edan Lepucki, in the New York Times.  Even though it's truly a good read, in full disclosure, my googly-eyed trance is more because my own girl sent me this link.  Being on opposite coasts this Mother's Day almost goes unnoticed with these feelings of connectivity and mutual appreciation bridging the miles and under-girding our bond ...how I love that girl so.] 

Just as President Trump noted,"[W]hen the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times, because in America we don't worship government we worship God,"   and thereby, the responsibility of teaching the nation's cornerstones, such as this, falls directly to the parent(s).  And having said that, even the First Amendment of the Constitution can only go so far -- for every generation must FIGHT for it --- taking the time to understand it, to respect it, to protect it, securing it six ways to Sunday, allowing it to fully permeate the hearts and minds of every American who comes along, believers and non-believers alike.  It is through this kind of process of citizenship by osmosis, that we celebrate being active participants who have a duty to be in the constant motion of elevating our virtues and passing it on to all we come in contact.  

It's a constant push, really; almost feels like it will never end.

It's like the most magnificent push ever....with the kind of strength and force only heaven could conceive, something unseen becomes known -- even given a name.   Hello, my name is First Amendment; hello, my name is America; hello, my name is Self-Reliance; hello, my name is Independence; hello, my name is FREEDOM OF Religion, middle name FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; hello, my name is Favorite, Exceptional, You Name It!  It's a fun game, isn't it... think a mom made it up when she ran out of Cheerios and there was still another 45 minutes of errands to run with two hungry mouths to feed and kicking and screaming in the backseat.

[ooooh which reminds of another good read...The Left's War on Free Speech, by Kimberley Strassel.  It is in April's  Imprimis from Hillsdale College.  The well researched narrative on how The Left intimidates and threatens and bullies its way through the world, from sea to shining sea, taking a jack hammer to the nation's cornerstones is only one aspect of it; the best part is how she begins -- telling a story from around her own dinner table.  so precious, so precious]

Just as nature and nurture begins with the Creator, let's be real -- in oh so many ways, the day to day operations are carried out on the backs and side hips of moms everywhere; and this just so happens to be one day out of 365 when we get to honor that.   And oh honey, your mama doesn't need a thing, I'll just make a sandwich or something and watch a little T.V. ;)

The thing is, a good and decent culture --  one that mirrors our Maker and is modeled after the examples given by our elders, one that teaches the finer points of America's exceptional foundation -- is built upon the cornerstones, one mama at a time, from generation to generation.  It's a rather simple operation if left free to be you and me.   And while fearing the boys within range are getting their fruit-of-the -loom's in a wad, let not your hearts be troubled -- when Father's Day arrives, this girl won't have to say much of anything --  just a sex change later and it's a  transcontinental goldenboy blog.  bada boom bada bing (teehee  I know -- sometimes, I even amaze myself.)

In closing, let's return to Liberty and one more thing from Trump:
I know that each of you will be a warrior for the truth, will be a warrior for our country, and for your family. I know that each of you will do what is right, not what is the easy way, and that you will be true to yourself, and your country, and your beliefs. In my short time in Washington I've seen firsthand how the system is broken. A small group of failed voices who think they know everything and understand everyone want to tell everybody else how to live and what to do and how to think. But you aren't going to let other people tell you what you believe, especially when you know that you're right.
amen to that.  amen to that.

And last, but not least, I love you, mama -- may my kisses cross the blogosphere and greet you, today and every day, for I AM nothing without you.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Just G, leaving a little lowly mark on the day Thing

Dear America,

"It is not what you eat, 
but what you digest that makes you strong.  
It is not what you earn, 
but what you save that makes you rich.  
It is not what you preach, 
but what you practice 
that makes you a Christian!"  
Francis Bacon

While Nikolai Lenin once said, "Religion is a kind of spiritual gin in which the slaves of capital drown their human shape and their claims to any decent human life."  and  "A young man or woman cannot be a Communist youth unless he or she is free of religious convictions."  and  "We must combat religion -- this is the ABC of all materialism, and consequently Marxism."

It's like, Oh my! -- the amount of propaganda ...created by communists and socialists... can fill the state of California; and why? perhaps because they were afraid of a greater power, a power that released the very potential to take a government's power altogether away.

And while some may say that, the Bible, Christianity as a whole, might be equally suspect, I think not...for it's a power of another mother.  Ever since the resurrection of Jesus, as governments and dictators and political movements come and go, Christianity has been the one constant throughout the world. 

Some may think of it as an enigma, something to be figured out, and fortunately, science goes there --and probably, much of the time, with a jaded heart set out to disprove its roots, its stories, the truth; but alas, the Bible is continually being verified and scientifically validated in the everyday, right down to the rocks and rivers and rapture.

And framed another way -- history has proven that indoctrination by coercion has never worked; and government, no matter how much they feign  goodness and charity for all, can't even come close to what God IS and DOES among his flock. 

And all of a sudden what some consider an enigma couldn't be any further from the truth -- for religion is an individual thing! Something our founders not only recognized, but glorified, by the way.   And that is precisely what the crazy commies were afraid of then and are afraid of now, for how else could they gain any momentum without the little people fully dependent upon government for all their needs?  [Read this for kicks, from Walter Williams in 2012.  And read this for giggles, from  The Patriot Post, from 5/4/2017.]

Now -- to current times -- Trump has been compared to tyrants, authoritarians, fascists, and even Hitler, himself.

So as America self-destructs in the face of the James Comey firing, all I really want to do is shake people, hit them upside the head, and call nearly everybody an enemy of the state in some form or fashion (and then, understandably, dumb ass comes next).  

If this wasn't actually disturbing...this nonsense...how it pulls us all away from what is truly important, whether in terms of the macro or the micro worlds in which we live, it might actually be entertaining, almost funny.    

But nooooooooo now we have people like Cory Booker saying things like this:
"I think it’s very problematic when you have a president and an attorney general involving themselves at a time in the firing of an individual that was investigating, asking for more resources to investigate, not only to Russia’s attacks, cyberattacks but also people that were part of the campaign — as Jeff Sessions was and, obviously, as candidate Trump was,” Booker said. 
“And so, this really have to get back to the focus of what’s going on right now, which is really a moment in American history where we’ve had an unprecedented attack on our elections and how are we as a nation going to respond,” he continued. “Donald Trump clearly has not taken this seriously, and what should be a Paul Revere moment for our country, where people are talking about the Russians are coming, they’re not intending not only to attack this last election but intending to continue this behavior, what will our response be?  And right now, it’s been wholly unsatisfactory from this administration.

it's just so funny...Paul Revere moment...when truth be known, Booker probably couldn't give a product -- dispensed by a horse's ass -- about Paul Revere.  And not to mention, it's just too bad it so far from the truth -- this president does care about election integrity, with or without Russian interference coming into play.  As just yesterday, he announced a new task force looking at this very thing, election integrity (Or, better known as the systematically rampant election fraud going on...Which happens often in the state of California, and any other state that does not require an I.D. to vote.).   And finally, just where is Booker's concern with regards to Hill and Bill's collusion with the Russians --- for profit --- centering upon the outrageous "non-profit" activity of The Clinton Foundation?

------Now -- having said all this -- here's to the real thing for today  -------

And it is acknowledging the incredible insight back behind Greg Gutfield's post, The Prison of Two Ideas.

Here's a good summation -- and while this girl is just going to cut a fraction out, taking it out of the immediate context entirely, it is being done on purpose.   Just trust that my manipulative ways have just rewards.   Greg says,

"...Ponder this crazy, fantastic number. 
Because it frees you
 from sticking to two sides. 
It reminds you that you can think of anything."

And then Gutfield goes through a few examples....like this one:

Take immigration. Are you xenophobic for wanting a wall? 
No, you can be for enforced, enhanced border protection, while welcoming grateful refugees and hard-working immigrants.  You can be for that wall, and that giant beautiful door. You see: Trump used a simple sentence to destroy the prison of two ideas. People remember the wall, but he also offered the door.
Oh my, I love what you did with the room, Greg.  It feels so open.  And look at that, I can actually walk between the couch and the coffee table without hitting the shin against an unsympathetic corner.

So how did we get here -- in America?  We are so polarized. [And yes, admittedly, this old girl is surely not immune).

Many times it's not even based with the truth of anything.  It's purely based upon a set of assumptions that are aligned with a party or ideology; or, it's based upon what we want to  be true.  But let's be clear -- this polarization isn't based upon what is honest to goodness truth, it's based upon a new paradigm of human dynamics within the culture of the United States of America, and just maybe the entire world.

So how did we get here?
Well, to get to my honest to goodness answer....

....drum roll please...

...the blame, in part, could surely rest upon the foot of Barack Obama presidency (for his Dreams From My Father collided and colluded with his own social justice dreams, with a little help from his anti-American mentors, and, there is no question, it has left a mark).  The anarchists and leftists have thoroughly organized under the Obama administration (college campuses are proof, no matter the student, faculty, or administration populations).

America took a turn, courtesy of the community organizer in chief at the helm.  Between the ghost of Saul Alinsky and his leftist playbook, Rules for Radicals.... combined with his years in the neighborhoods of Chicago, thrusting the social justice philosophy into the mainstream....not to mention another controversial  mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and a rather long list of other suspect associations all his life!  (Communists, Marxists, and radicals, oh my)....and last, but not least, the open door policy to the White House and the American Rule of Law to hundreds of associates/bureaucrats who happen to also be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood...and in the end, leading us to this crazy cat as the  new DNC chief.

America has been set up to self-destruct.  

America has been set up to fight against each other, at every turn.

And in the simplest of terms and arguments, "The Prison of Two Ideas" gained a foothold upon the American landscape -- basic floor plan and all -- being fully cemented into the brand new foundation under President Obama.  Obama could very well have designed this prison in which we live all by himself, except for the fact he got lots of help.

Of course, this kind of treason is rather difficult to prove -- being the by-product of the politically correct culture, the one divined through leftists eyes and un-tethered souls and wearing boots up to their brown shirts and britches that un-apologetically begs to indoctrinate the entire lot, eventually.

Oh how history proves how patient they are; communists and socialists and radicals and terrorists have much in common, oh and they seem to believe they have all the time in the world, too.  They just put on the blinders and keep trudging forward, one boot to the neck at a time. 

Now, if there could be some great unify-er of some sort, pulling us together, and at the same time, allowing for our differences to compliment the whole...

hmmmmm.......wonder what That could be?

In the olden days -- this unify-er  was God, pure and simple...even if that looked like we gave reverence to different  Gods, varied religions, or even no religion whatsoever.   The point is, we were guided, as a people, by a higher understanding, a higher connection, a higher purpose under heaven (Referencing Divine Providence was NO accident, hello!).   

America was truly high!  And at this height, America not only prevailed against Britain, it created the most unique governmental foundation in the whole entire world (hence why we refer to ourselves as exceptional -- it's not that America was better than other countries, we were just the exception!).

Between the cornerstones and the foundation, between instituting the very precepts and laws and blue prints for the room to grow and expand,  no other country on the planet, up until 1776 anyway, understood this, let alone incorporated this knowledge into daily life for future generations.

That is just the truth.

Oh my,
"Better a dry crust 
with peace and quiet
 than a house full of feasting 
with strife."
 Proverbs 17:1

This girl is so disturbed by the escalation of the propaganda by propagandists/ "Comey homey's" (left wing media at the door steps of a mansion full of left wing representatives/leaders) -- especially considering, none of these people were his true homey until the day he got shown the door.

And, oh how I wish President Trump would not continue to feed it, the frenzy; for these rabid dogs need to find a new porch.  It is uncomfortable to hear him speak of tape recordings over dinner, as if a veiled threat will keep Comey's mouth shut.  It's like, c'mon, Mr. President -- remember who you are and where you come from!  Don't fall for this; rise above it all and move on with being the leader of the free world (earthly speaking, of course).  If there is nothing there, there, then why be here, here?

[Now, if we are going to talk of things leaving a mark,
let's go to the Apostle Paul.   He is credited
to have written thirteen books of the New Testament, 
some of it actually from within four prison walls.]

Shut the door.  Just shut the door.
Find a good replacement, find a good replacement.

America needs a leader, not a follower; we need a prison breaker, not a prison maker and abide-r.

You live in the White House, and it is sacred space in more ways than one.

Make it a Good Day, G

P.S. Guess the links multiplied today...take some time or no time, it's entirely up to you...teehee

It's an Intelligence and Insight Thing

Dear America,

"When we survey our lives 
and endeavors 
we soon observe that 
almost the whole of our actions
 and desires 
are bound up with
 the existence of other human beings."

some time ago...an outfit called Liberty Guard (the founder and chairman, Congressman Bob Barr, retired), produced a pamphlet titled, "Hillary Rodham Clinton: A History of Scandal, Corruption and Cronyism" and the very first thing, was this:

"1)NEW YORK TIMES: ...Canadian uranium billionaire Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton flew to Kazakhstan together.  Giustra then landed a huge uranium mining deal.  Giustra donated $31 million and pledged another $100 million to the Clinton Foundation.  In 2010 a Russian company wanted to buy Uranium One, which had taken over Giustra's company.  The new Chairman of Uranium One, Ian Teller, secretly donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation, which failed to report this money.  In June of 2010, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to deliver a speech in Moscow.  In October of 2010, the U.S. State Department under Hillary Clinton approved the sale of Uranium One to the Russian company.  The $135 million in donations the Clinton Foundation received from investors in Uranium One were never disclosed, violating Hillary's signed deal with the Obama administration.  Uranium is the essential element needed to make nuclear weapons.  Thanks to Hillary, Russia now controls 20% of U.S. uranium."
the full story can be found at New York Times, circa 2015, HERE.

Now, to the controversy, beginning with the letter to James Comey, former FBI Director:

Dear Director Comey: 
I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately. 
While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau. 
It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission. 
I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors. 
Donald J. Trump.

The democrats are treating this as a constitutional crisis, when in fact, the president just got rid of the riff-raff...an act that is fully under the law as president of the United States; and further, an act that actually followed through with the wishes of the democrats, dating back to July 5th, at least. (And thank you, Mark Alexander for this post, @The Patriot Post, a place where true intelligence meets the day to day news with a courageous, authentic, patriotic, spirit and great insight --- with honors!)

The president stated in the letter, that there were three times when the former director, Comey, told Trump that he was NOT under investigation.

Now someone who should be investigated -- for canoodling with the Russians....and ....um....like, sending confidential top security emails via a personal email account AND using a personal unprotected server for her confidential State Department correspondence -- the very illegal server that even President Obama, himself, knew all about...and of course, there is the horror of developing an entire lie to cover up the Benghazi misstep at the State Department, after ignoring requests to beef up the security, which as we all know now, ended with the tragedy of losing four Americans.....hello? --- might just be Hillary, for Edgar J. Hoover's freaking sake.

As the president said --
"It is essential that we find 
new leadership for the FBI
 that restores public trust
 and confidence
 in its vital law enforcement mission."

Based upon polling just a little over a month ago, the truth is, Comey had an embarrassing 17% approval rate!  That is so pathetic.  GO to The Hill, here.

The thing is, what the people expect of the FBI, and really all entities designed to protect and defend the Rule of Law -- is an unbiased , law abiding, non-political, experienced body, that is being led by an unbiased, law abiding, non-political, experienced leader.

Comey became a liability the moment he began to step up to the mic, the second he said too much in the public arena, the instant he began to overstep his authority with the way he played with the truth and lies, and things known and unknown.

Trump could not fire Comey in July
-- he wasn't the president.
Trump could not fire Comey in November
-- he was merely the president-elect.
Trump could not fire Comey on day one
-- for he just didn't have all the information yet.

Trump waited to have the key information, in order to make the key judgement necessary,  from the man who would become Comey's direct boss -- which only happened two weeks ago -- Rod Rosenstein.  See HERE.   Hey, and even if it was not Rod's idea to begin with -- as rumors seem to say -- the president is the president, this is his call to make any way you want to shake it.

[You better click that link to Rod's recommendations; it says it all.  And it is very complete.  Don't even waste your time getting the account correct from CNN and Anderson Cooper; that is truly fake news.]

But clearly, it's like Trump was damned if he did and damned if he didn't; but nobody can deny that Trump waited to have all the information, and that's a good thing.  While The Left predicted his administration would be going nuclear at every turn, the truth is, his directives have been nothing but measured.  So, what, that's not attractive now just because it's Trump doing the doling out?    Seriously?


Hillary was, and continues to be, the worst possible candidate for the democratic party -- possibly ever.  How many times do we have to go over this?  It says nothing, to say she got the popular vote -- concentrated mostly from two states, California and New York.  Why bother talk about it anymore; this is old news with fake news of Russian interference playing with the whole truth and nothing but the un-truth.  Hillary is really good at masterminding a story to cover a story to cover up something that is just gawd awful.  [The Liberty Guard pamphlet listed, like, fifty of em]

And really, if we were to spend any matter of time on this matter, the Podesta discovery -- apparently leaked by  wikileaks and the Russians...was pretty damaging all on its own.  The Donna Brazile controversy, the leaking of questions to the Clinton camp, dealt a series of serious self-inflicted blows....and you can just read this for all the dirty details.

But let's be real -- all these conversations and sneaky situations actually happened; it's not like the leaked emails were totally made up -- these were actual emails between the upper echelon of the Clinton campaign.  Is that the Russian's fault?  And just where, oh where, is the "needy latino" uproar, once that comment came to see the light of day?

There is a fascinating piece offered from Hillsdale College, it's monthly publication, Imprimis, which highlights a talk from Herbert Meyer in the February issue.  It may not have anything to do with Comey's firing, but it has everything to do with the timing and the gathering of intelligence, and what happens when we add experience and insight.

With a little luck, key judgement comes after asking the right questions; it becomes the proper response only after the gathering of information combines with experience and insight and ultimately paves the way to making a decision that changes everything.  This Comey firing is a perfect example.

In the same way, a case could be made that the American people gathered intelligence all on their own throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, in spite of, both candidates having their fair share of issues and controversy.  The bottom line is that Trump came out the winner and is the president of the United States.

This is key judgement; the reason this is key judgement is because the United States of America is still a republic--  the intelligence and insight of the masses came together and made Trump the victor. End of story.

We will know how serious this president is about the Rule of Law once we see his pick...
and it goes without saying, this will be a chance for Trump's "intelligence and insight" to properly meet and make good on his intentions, on behalf of the American people.

In the meantime, this is not a good day for America, for it illuminates just how wide and deep personal and political bias frames the news of the day -- mainstream media, and much of the cable news networks, are coming unhinged, being completely out of touch with where most Americans truly stand on Comey's Bureau worthiness, and all but ignoring what the democrats as a whole were saying about Comey...that is, up until May 9th.

Rod Rosenstein made quite clear a set of recommendations to the president; the president took that intelligence to heart and mind, adding a wellspring of his past experiences and insight -- a culmination of years of working with people from all over the globe -- to shape his final decision.

My final recommendations:  Let's move on.  Given that all critical/favorable eyes will be upon whoever the next FBI Director may be, let's get on with it!    Let's start over!   [And may that person also have the back bone to investigate Hillary all over again, starting with the Clinton Foundation, then scaling the open borders of Benghazi, and finally delving into the deep space storage and transmission of confidential intelligence, amid an illegal private server, adding up to innumerable felonious acts while Secretary of State.]

Make it a Good Day, G
