It's All About who the Real Enemy of the State IS Thing

Dear America,

"Too much agreement kills a chat."
 Eldridge Cleaver

if you could invite anyone over for dinner, dead or alive, how would you fill a table of twelve?

My list continues to be tweaked --  but this guy, Cleaver -- oh he is now sitting just to my right.

It's an American story -- of a major flip flop, of nearly unimaginable proportions!  If the story was told on Fox News, and Fox News only,  more than likely, half of the viewership -- the liberals --  would believe the report to be untrue.  Correction -- the masses leaning to the left would never even hear about it, for they would never see it, being a bunch of never Trumper's let alone Fox News viewers; and falling victim to the mainstream media's general practice of selective truth-telling, the story would never be told on CNN, or ABC, or CBS, or (MS)NBC, simply because this narrative from commie to conservative doesn't fall in line with the leftist movement, mindset, or agenda.

Eldridge Cleaver went from being an imprisoned and violent Black Panther, a lover of communism,  an unconscionable, unrepentant rapist, to a man reborn in every possible way; from growing a personal faith a relationship with God through Christianity, from being a fully repentant and restored ex-con, from breaking all ties to his sordid past and becoming a conservative republican before he died, to his credit and tenacity, Cleaver flipped upon everything he was and became a brand new man. And a better man, at that.

What a fascinating conversation heaven must be having right about now, perhaps over plates of food served family style.

Which makes me wonder, what in the world is Jeff Flake thinking?  Is he that desperate for people to approve of him, like him,  as he seemingly leads with the hope that people come to believe he must be the smartest congressman in the room?  Comparing Trump to Stalin?  Seriously?

A free press can only be the guardian of democracy when it actually tells the truth, the whole truth, Jeff Flake, emphasis on flake.

The press is an "enemy of the people" when the press holds a tyrannical hold on what is true and what is not, or what is told and what is not, be it from facts (like a doctor's report) to pure fiction (can you say dossier?); you would have to be deaf dumb and blind not to see the overwhelming bias of the mainstream media, leading with a certain narrative no matter the mainstream news channel you choose -- any sign of objectivity, supported by facts, are trumped with utter nonsense. every minute of every day.

But it is good that you said what you said, Jeff; for it tells me that you are doing the right thing with your decision not to run for re-election in Arizona.  This must have been your idea of performing the proverbial swan song....(while the irony runs wide and deep if you understand the falsehoods of the phrase itself....too funny).

In the macro, it's kinda sad that people are so threatened with just the idea of holding different opinions, to be in agreement with disagreeing; but in the micro, how can Jeff Flake not see it?  The mainstream media IS tweaking the truth; it IS withholding facts to protect the Left; it IS portraying this administration as being led with a president on the edge of sanity, a dimwit, a racist...all of which are untrue...How can Jeff not see it?  To have this kind of cray cray come from someone from the right, just makes all this so hard to swallow.

Now, Barack Obama, I can understand --

"If you watch Fox News, 
you are living on a different planet 
than you are if you are listening to NPR.”

wow.
But in reality -- Obama's feelings about Fox News and conservative outlets were not a secret.  Every chance he got, Obama would chide the conservative media, especially hitting the so-called "untruths" of Fox, including, and continually, knocking it's ignorant viewership.

It IS a good thing that "too much agreement kills a chat," right? (I just LOVE this line from Cleaver so much.) 

Unlike the Libs, or flake-y so-called conservatives, I dig this kind of disagreement.  I love the art of a damn good discussion, in every civilized and uncivilized way.

And really, weaving the knocks against media together in equal portion whether  Left or Right -- how is it not evident (to Jeff and anyone else)  just how both presidents, past and present, seem to cling to their own definition of  "fake news."  For Obama -- fake news is, and always will be, that which comes via Fox News, and any other conservative website, for that matter.  For Trump -- fake news is the mainstream media.

And this is what makes this soooooo wrong.  For the mainstream is supposed to just say the news -- bias, narratives, re-story telling, critiquing, judging, taking sides, is simply not cool.  Democracy dies in darkness AND under the glaring light of bias.

The thing is:  Trump is at war with the Left leaning liberal media; but not to worry -- he saw it coming.  And more important, he is not afraid.  (Hence, one of the main differences between Trump and all sixteen of his republican challengers in the 2016 election.)

Jeff not only needs to grow a pair, he needs to wake up to the obvious, so predictable, rather innocuous ridicule that knocks and rocks media outlets both ways.  And then Jeff just needs to go away. 

It's pretty harmless, these jabs, either left or right, against all or part of the media; but to put Trump in the same group as a Stalin for it?  Then honestly, Flake, you must then do the same with Obama. 

How unfair, sophomoric really, that a republican like Jeff Flake -- a guy who clearly doesn't like Trump, let alone respect the voters who put Trump in office --  does not see fit to give Trump a fair shake (it's gotta be personal by now, just sayin).

There is a long list where the MEDIA gets it wrong:

Trump does not have dementia.
Trump did not collude with the Russians to win the election.
Trump did not sell Uranium to the Russians, using a private foundation for cover, along with a little help from the state department.
Trump did not orchestrate a downright lying piece of propaganda from Fusion GPS, and use it to gain unlawful warrants, etc  etc
Trump did not store confidential government documents using an unprotected, non-government private server....
Trump didn't cover up a terror attack at Benghazi, blaming it on a video...and go off to a fund raiser the very next day (not even being in the room when the sh** was going down...! Obama had to get his sleep.)
shall I go on?  Because I can.
We haven't even mentioned the roaring economy, all thanks to Trump, a new tax code, and within his first year.  bada bing bada boom.
.................
Oh, but Trump might need to lose 10 to 15 pounds, there is that; but other than that, Trump is physically and mentally all there, what a shame for the left leaning mainstream media, who wish the guy would just have a heart attack already and die.  Truth be told, Trump has been living a pretty  healthy life (having not touched alcohol or cigarettes or street drugs his entire life) and is in peek health for his age.  His doctor thinks a fair share of good genes has contributed...

Will this report put the nonsense to bed?  Will this finally end the non-stop disparaging remarks towards the president's mental health and ability to control red buttons and crazy communist leaders large and small? Nope.

It won't change a thing.
As the left leaning mainstream media has decidedly colluded.

Trump is correct.  The mainstream media IS an enemy of the state, and all the while, only the educated voter is aware --- all the rest of the public is simply jumping on board and drinking kool-aid.

WINNERS OF FAKE NEWS AWARDS, see here.

So to conclude the news on the day -- Flake is an idiot.  A self-promoting, RINO-whining, s$%&storm shooting, fraud who has merely fallen victim to his never-Trumper, mainstream media ass-kissing, f@&^ his  constituents, heart of hearts.  He has no understanding of the games Trump plays.

It's been twenty years since Eldridge Cleaver walked the earth; but surely he would have made a better congressman than Flake any day of the week.

And on that note, this day is done.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's a Day for MLK; May Heaven and Earth Unite Thing

Dear America,

"10.  If necessary, 
God will move heaven and earth 
to show us His will." 
Life Principles to Live By, 
Rev. Charles F. Stanley

mighty forces are alive and well on the earth

there seems to be a constant ebb and flow of good and evil, right and wrong, no matter the personal political perspective -- you know, whether of the left, right, or center.

History proves that common ground, in America, as well as in many other parts of the world, IS,  and always will be, being a people of faith.

When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was here on earth, he recognized a certain brokenness within society, and went to the Highest and Fiercest Resource available in order to mend -- Almighty God. From speaking faith over communities, to reciting a countless number of Bible verse, Dr. King used everything in his power --  and the Lord's --  to invoke peace, create change, and make all things new.

I believe, from all that I have heard and read about this fine man, he wanted America to come together -- and for each of us, through every generation to come, to live in a spirit of brotherly love and acceptance of one another.  I believe he also expected all people -- no matter the shade --  to do their duty, to God and to country, to community and to family.

I'm not so sure that we, as a people, have done just that.  It's not a judgement; it is simply an observation.

this girl just loves BrainyQuote -- here, in his own words, is MLK:

"The function of education 
is to teach one to think
 intensively and to think critically. 
Intelligence plus character - 
that is the goal of true education."

"I have a dream 
that my four little children 
will one day live in a nation 
where they will not be judged
 by the color of their skin, 
but by the content of their character."

"We must learn to live together 
as brothers or perish together as fools."

"We must develop 
and maintain the capacity 
to forgive. 
He who is devoid of the power 
to forgive is devoid 
of the power to love. 
There is some good 
in the worst of us 
and some evil in the best of us. 
When we discover this, 
we are less prone to hate our enemies."

I believe, if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today, he would not only be influential and outspoken about the Black Lives Matter protesters, the NFL's national anthem protesters ---  he would be a weekly visitor at the White House; I believe President Trump and the Reverend would not only combine forces, heaven and earth would move in mysterious and miraculous ways, all in an effort to make America great again.

I truly believe that.

Returning to Judge Troward's, The Hidden Power:

"What we have to do, therefore, is to take the working of the law for granted, and make use of it accordingly; and since that is the law of Mind, and Mind is Personality, this Power, which is at once ourselves and above ourselves, may be treated as a Person and may be spoken with, and its replies received by the inner ear of the heart.  Any scheme of philosophy that does not result in this personal intercourse with the Divine Mind falls short of the mark....The Supreme Mind with which we converse is only to be met in the profoundest depths of our own being, and, as Tennyson says, is more perfectly ourselves than our own hands and feet.  It is our natural Base; and realising this we shall find ourselves to be in very truth "guarded ones," guided by the Spirit in all things, nothing too great and nothing too trivial to come within the great Law of our being."

amen to that

heaven and earth moves through us, with us, around us, in every possible way

"The connection itself is intrinsic, and can never be severed; but it must be consciously realised before it can be consciously used.  All our development consists in the increasing consciousness of this connection, which enables us to apply the higher power to whatever purpose we may have in hand, not merely in the hope that it may respond, but with the certain knowledge that by the law of its own nature it is bound to do so, and likewise with the knowledge that by the same law it is bound also to guide us to the selection of right objects and right methods." just more Troward
So the thing is,
as we awaken to the profoundness of this day, in remembrance of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to God be the Glory that this man LIVED...that he touched our lives then, that he continuously touches our lives today; and with that, what a loss for America; oh how I wish he were celebrating his 89 years with us today. what a loss, what a loss.  

Happy Birthday, MLK, happy birthday; surely heaven made you a cake with sprinkles in every color.

I truly believe, all the right answers are in the unseen, now and forevermore.  And it sure wouldn't hurt for the masses, from one congregation to another, from one community to another, to join forces in prayer; calling upon the Holiest One of All, our Supreme Guide, in unison, to mend and heal our brokenness still, is the least and the greatest thing a people can do.

Which brings me to a perfect close; #9 from Rev. Charles Stanley's Life Principles:

"Trusting God 
means looking beyond 
what we can see to what God sees."

oh thank heaven, right.  

And finally, God's plan is moving along accordingly.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's About Being True to Being You Thing

Dear America,

"I want to talk to you about the livingness 
there is in being yourself. 
It has at least the merit of simplicity,
 for it must surely be easier 
to be oneself 
than to be something or somebody else." 
The Hidden Power by Judge Thomas Troward

indeed

it seems the winter break over Christmas --- when the girl arrives home and the holidays commence --everything that was part of me being my usual self comes to a screeching halt.  Although hindsight, it doesn't really have a sudden stop, it's more a gradual letting go of things that normally occupied my time, and ever so slightly replacing them with all things surrounding her arrival, her visit, what to eat and what to do first.  And nearly as suddenly as the routine upends itself, it flips once more upon the day she leaves.

And in what seems like an instant, it is back to the life as we know it and all things familiar, promptly and orderly and responsibly come back to view and firmly return to the making of our foundation, grounded in schedules unbroken, goals of the coming year, and fresh in the hopes and dreams of whatever is to come.

And while this diary isn't known for being consistent, if you were to squint your eyes a wee bit, you will find that it is a record (albeit my record....teehee) of the livingness in America; that thing we do, the stuff that seems to keep on keepin' on in the every day, is the brilliant and universal essence of Life Itself.  It continually doesn't disappoint, for unlike the little miss gthang here, IT IS CONSTANT. THIS LIVINGNESS is a constant, receptive, life force that immediately responds to our thoughts and actions and words, and manifests something right back!

Continuing with Troward -- "This up-springing of Life-Essence is not another's -- it is our own.  It does not require deep studies, hard labours, weary journeyings to attain it; it is not the monopoly of this teacher or that writer....It is the innermost of ourselves, and a little common-sense thought as to how anything comes to be anything will soon convince us that the great inexhaustible life must be the very root and substance of us, permeating every fibre of our being."  [and don't you just love the old English spellings here...]


The things is -- it would be high time we make way for the uniqueness of all of us, yes? And at the same time, learning to self-edit may not be a bad idea either.

Indeed, sometimes the varied uniqueness we are surrounded with is at times awkward, embarrassing -- sometimes it is not something we agree with, let alone fully support -- sometimes it is based on the merits, while other times it is not -- it's sometimes factual, and sometimes not so much..............but make no mistake....

the day we begin to censor opinion, control the conversation, dictate to the whole without allowing for our differences to be respectfully heard, tweeted, or facebooked -- is the day this country, foundation and all, submerges into an abyss, never to be seen or heard again.  

By definition, by precedent, the living waters springing from the fountain of independence and liberty of this fine Republic must be allowed to spring forward, no matter what.

And as hard as this is to say aloud, even The Donald's

Thing is -- when posed with the question, would you rather live in Haiti or Norway --  one would have to be rather disingenuous not to quickly reply, ah duh, Norway.  [But get a hoot out of CNN's Joan Walsh, just being herself.] Like really, Joan?

The only reason the democrats keep running on this open border, open migration, come one come all, amnesty for everyone, even if they come from s*&hole countries.....is for votes.  Plain and simple.  Oh my, those Dems ---  they just have to be who they are, no matter how lacking in common-sense to the safety and security of America...

Indeed -- Donald is no Ronald -- there is that!  And how.

BUT he is a rather good DONALD J. TRUMP.  

Go, status quo, go. (as in go away.)

Oh Trump knows  full well who he is; he knows the art of the deal; he knows how to mess with people; he knows how to put his foot in it; he knows how to use twitter; and just like Obama, he has a pen and is not afraid to use it, either...  He is what he is and who he is.  

It is what it is.

This is the livingness of America in real life.

And just get a load of the success...ever since the end of the year's final passage of the tax overhaul!

Immediately, the response from corporate America was bonuses!  And just this last week, Walmart stepped up with making a major announcement....see here.

At least The Donald didn't settle with the status quo, right?

But what can I say....he is sometimes crude...he is a fixer upper in progress, personally and professionally.  But as far and wide as the eye can see, aren't we all?  Evolving in the every day, the Donald's Essence-of-Life is active and alive with a spirit that is his own.  To be the most true to the Law of Life Itself, he is his own man in every way -- and for that, we should applaud his ability to get away with all kinds of sh**.   All of us have imperfections...

While his legacy is under construction, it may appear crude from the naked eye; but after it is all said and done, there will be a legacy.  And it will be The Donald's, just as every president before him.

One more Troward point:

"It is not the Essence-of-Life which has to grow, for that is eternally perfect in itself; but it is our recognition of it that has to grow, and this growth cannot be forced.  It must come by a natural process, the first necessity of which is to abstain from all straining after being something which at the present time we cannot naturally be.  The Law of our Evolution has to put us in possession of certain powers and opportunities, and further development depends on our doing just what these powers and opportunities make it possible for us to do, here and now."

Like it or not -- Trump is president.

He deserves a certain respect in order to do what he has been empowered to do, expressly by the voters, and on behalf of the future of a strong America.  This is what he ran on, and this is, in fact, what his livingness in America is pre-destined and divinely designed.   He IS in possession of certain powers and opportunities to affect the status quo, and make America great again.  Because let's face it, he must have it; otherwise, he would not be sitting in the Oval Office.  This is about law on top of law on top of law.

In essence, America has grown in decline.  The principles that have made us who we are are showing signs of neglect --  and only the little people seem to be in the position to recognize it, being the natural and raw state that it is in.  

AMERICA has always been considered an exceptional nation, because AMERICA, thanks to our founders, changed the trajectory of government, upending centuries of oppressive control of the little people, from the foundation up.  For once and for all, government took a massive holiday and didn't come back for quite some time.  Until the here and now.

Which reminds me of this little zinger from President Reagan, as seen on The Patriot Post -- "You can't be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy."  And how.

So in this new year, let us strive to be our best; my efforts will focus on being the best G, while for you -- you need to focus on being the best U.  And we can all hope and pray for President Trump to bring his best PDT, too.  From the crude to the refined, we all have a place, a purpose under heaven.

Pretty sure, in the big picture, all things will work out for the best.

And now, this is where I leave you  -- even though there is so much more to say.  I seem to always be leaving my self in a position of wanting more...but that has to be a good thing.  It doesn't hurt anyone to have an appetite for more, better, and ultimately manifesting the very best life has to offer....and all the while just by being yourself.  

Every single one of us has this livingness within.  

God bless you all in this new year; may the self-exploration continually flow like everlasting spring water to be not only true to ourselves, but strive to be good, decent people,  from sea to shining sea.  GO AMERICA!

Make it a Good Day, G
