CIEMR: How Cancer grows (By not cutting it out)

OK, so here we can see how acceptance of some abnormal concept like that of the LBGTAEIOU acceptance can have a certain “creep” effect. One day it pops up on the radar, then the next day it takes the next step, then the next and so forth. If you were to plot out a line on some cultural graph, well just use your imagination as to where that line may extend to. At some point the line crosses the legal threshold where one may suffer consequences from breaking a law protecting this new “Norm.” Then later on it might get a bit worse, and if allowed to continue its evolution, would this line someday enter a zone where people who don’t/can’t support this concept are punishable by death?

Can’t happen, right? Silly old Don (Only two of those three words are accurate ;-). But wait grasshopper, I can point you to post WW1 Germany and the rise of the Nazis. When they first started calling out Jews, it would have been a good time to stomp a mud hole in the middle of their movement, but cowards of that day just went along with things, not wanting to draw attention to themselves, and just look how that turned out.

So what of this utter bull crap that some front line supervisor (Sergeant?? Lieutenant/Captain??) Pulled by disallowing this Christian scout group, (Royal Rangers I’m guessing??), to visit this National Guard camp. That junior leader was operating under still present DOD rules that provide for the (More than) equal treatment of LBGTWHATSNEXT identified soldiers. Well, a small point in this is that all citizens are equal, none are more equal than others. And in this age of the Pennsylvania 102nd snowflake comrade regiment, I am personally offended. I think I should be more equal, but that’s just me…

Note: I am so thankful that God gave me life when he did so that I could serve a long career in the Army before all this nonsense ever started!

I’m an old white guy who wore combat boots for like 1/3rd of my life. Oddly, however, I see no special recognition for old white guys who walked around in combat boots for like WAY TOO MANY years. So I think we need an old white man caucus in congress. Biden can be our leader should the election rigging by the demon-crats prove successful this time. I think we need special rules that constantly poke into everyone’s awareness that old white guys are something special and somehow should be valued more than others, like, say very young green women. We should have an old white guy pride movement.

We should celebrate these old white guys with a month long time where speed limits are reduced nationwide by 25%! Anyone who does not agree with me is obviously, gizzer-ah-phobic, and I would suggest we dismiss these bigoted haters as a bunch of no-gooders! Since a lot of us have money, we’ll hire those LBGTFREAKSHOW people to carry our banners and push our wheelchairs for us during our many mandatory attendance, public celebrations. We could use an old white T-shirt with some paint stains and holes in it for a flag representing our movement.

I’m on a roll here ;-). Yea and since we are being constantly shoved into the public conscious, if young green folks do something to offend us, then congress should get together (Did you just hear that…Congress get together!!!!!!!) and enact laws which would curtail and punish anything that might remotely suggest that we old white men are anything but good. Yep, mess with us and we’re gonna get our lap dogs in the congress (I mentioned we were rich, right?) to get their cronies to act to always promote us and consider our needs above all others.

For example: Should we walk into a supermarket, having forgotten to put our pants on and some young children become traumatized by some wrinkled biology or something, then, well, to heck with them. Old White Men of the newly founded, old white people movement, the OWPM, or Oh-Wappums have special rights which in our view are more important than those of you intolerant LBGTWHAT”SUPers and the NPNP’s (Normal peoples Normalcy Party) or “Nips” for short.

(Yea, I know, I’m close on that last one…running the razors edge, I am!)

Well that all seems quite silly, right? Because of the unnatural tendency for some things to be shoved into the public consciousness, then then crafted into law we ought to be careful with taking those first steps. We should to be applying something we learned from history to the modern context to see how this latest deviation from normal may end up. I didn’t fall asleep in history class, and I also care a bit about our constitution. I care about the rule of law over anarchy or any other archy. That exists out there. I am concerned when scouts who simply believe in God are denied to visit Fort Indian Town Gap.

That camp (Read: Fort or Base), is an American warrior base and to whoever over there who thinks it’s yours I have news, it isn’t. It is mine, and I am the citizens of the United States. I fought for your dammed right to still have that camp, Leaders, I would suggest you start putting oath ahead of career and ambition and set things right again. Fix this stupid LBGTFELLOFFTHE RAILROADTRACKS favoring policy and come to your senses. You don’t believe in this LBGT nonsense any more than I do. Hell, almost all of America is against this crap, but they are mostly cowards, you should not be.

At some point you are going to have to stand up and say, look, I am a believer in God and this new policy is inconsistent with my beliefs and I simply cannot support them. Do that by the thousands and someone is gonna hear you. We will hear you! While you’re at it do it in a big public way. Heck, you’re warriors, and don’t all of us knowing that it is over, know what to do next? We fix bayonets and charge and thank God for the days he gave to us. We show courage in the face of evil, to the end!

For those in any place of the government, you should be mindful that there is a second amendment. Do not forget that you have trained millions of us in the art of war. It would be wise to assume we will hold to our oath should this nation ever become threatened from external or internal foes. This is a country founded by men who loved God and should you study your history books, read about one of the first acts of the Congress of the United States in the late 1780’s.

The first continental Congress, at the swearing in of President George Washington in a little church in Manhattan, New York, listened to his first words as president. President Washington asked the congress to follow him outside. There at a corner in the shadow of a tree, he knelt and prayed unto God. He asked God that this country would be protected allowed to grow to be a mighty nation where truth and law and liberty and equality would reign. He then concentrated this nation unto God.

A concentration is way more than a simple promise. He spoke the words, that this nation will always serve God and that he would in turn always protect it. But, should this nation ever stop doing the will of God, that the Lord would remove his protection from it. President Washington knew a United States living under the rule of law would be a very powerful thing, In that day with the constitution hot off of the press,  law was derived from biblical principles, And he knew that if something as powerful as his vision of the United States were move away from serving our divine creator it could then only serve the devil. Therefore when he asked God to remove his protection, he was asking God to kill this nation if we strayed and stayed.

Don’t be that person who supports anything outside the original concept and construct that is the United States. We are walking a fine line at the moment, while millions of us pray for the nation, for its safety and for a revival of faith to sweep us back to our biblical roots, we have killed millions and millions of unborn. We celebrate this LBGT thing. We turn away from truth and we have become cowards. Yep, you. About face, Parade Rest, and stare into the mirror. If you feel you don’t want to rock the boat for the safety of you and your family, then promote yourself to yellow leader second class, and add a half yellow stripe on your sleeve to match the stripe on your back. I and men like me want to see those bright yellow half stripes so that we will know you are of no use in the moral crisis and fight we see coming. Things like what you are about to read below can only happen in the face of cowardice:



National Guard
Banned Christian Scouts Over LGBT Policy
Todd Starnes · Jun. 24, 2019
A National Guard facility in Pennsylvania refused to allow a Trail Life USA scouting troop to tour its facility, and the reason why is going to blow your mind.


The Fort Indiantown Gap National Guard facility regularly hosts tours for Boy Scout troops and other organizations, but Trail Life boys were told they could not participate because they belonged to a Christian scouting organization.


The National Guard tells me it had concerns about whether the Christian group was supportive of the LGBT community.


“After researching the organization online, it was quickly discovered that the organization restricted membership to certain persons,” the National Guard told me. “Army values and policy prevent discrimination against gender or sexual orientation within our ranks, which in turn led to the first-level reviewer denying the request.”


So the National Guard launched an investigation to determine whether a bunch of Christian teenagers were gay friendly? I wasn’t aware that was a prerequisite for taking a tour of a military facility paid for by the tax dollars of Christian citizens (among others).


John Stemberger, the chair of the board at Trail Life USA, blasted the National Guard’s explanation.


“Requiring a Christian code of conduct does not equal improper discrimination,” he told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “Christian churches and organizations have never allowed their own members to promote views that are opposed to the clear teachings and values of the Bible.”


The National Guard lifted the ban on Christian scouts after First Liberty Institute and the Independence Law Center got involved. The law firms, which handle religious-liberty cases, said the National Guard’s decision to ban the Christian scouting group is “discriminatory and unconstitutional.”


“It was not until after receiving the letter from the group’s attorneys that the issue was raised to the appropriate level for a legal and full staff review,” the National Guard said. “There, it was determined that granting a tour to the organization would not violate policy and should be permitted. The decision has been reversed and the tour is being granted.”


The idea that Christian boys would be banned strictly because of their religious beliefs is not only ludicrous, it’s also illegal.


“The bottom line is that the original decision was still discrimination against these boys and their families because of their religion,” Stemberger told me. “That is simply un-American, un-Constitutional, and just morally wrong.”


Let’s hope the National Guard has learned its lesson and will never again discriminate against Christian citizens.

CIEMR / CIEMR All Inclusive
« on: June 24, 2019, 11:21:37 AM »
All Inclusive

So after seeing this commercial about an all-inclusive Sandals resort in Turks and Cacaos, initially I was taken back some years, well many years. Kat and I went there with the girls in the early 21st century. (Now that’s adding some depth and perspective to all of this wouldn’t you say?) We had scored a visit at this nice condo right on Crystal Beach and right beside a Sandals resort. We were literally, like 100 feet away from the place and would go over and mingle at times during that relaxing vacation week.
The commercial talked about “X” number of world class restaurants, nightly parties, exploring, endless hours of heavenly bliss and all of that. The impression, of course is all you needed was to be hefted off the rather noisy and cramped Delta flight out of Atlanta onto the ball of cotton anxiously awaiting your arrival, and the rest would just so effortlessly unravel to your utter joy. You would be pampered and want for nothing, fall in love all over again, and be rejuvenated to the core of your soul!
Wow, sign me up. Oh wait, God already did. The place is called heaven and for your first clue, it aint located at any latitude/longitude you will find on this big ball of dirt we’re living on! All-inclusive is but a concept, an imaginary thing that cannot be created because we peeps are all so different that the specific combination of events, meals, activities and so forth needed to satisfy one single person are about as numerous as the stars in the vastness of a clear desert night.

Then as I thought a bit more about this all-inclusive concept with my eyes fixed on an expensive model of a B-17G bomber resting on my bookcase shelf, the one my dad flew, I really started to think about the concept itself. I began thinking that now, all around us we have the result of a society, and American culture that has tried oh so hard to make life all-inclusive for our most recent generation. As a parent of a whole bunch of kids, I have likely spent something more than a year but short of a lifetime sitting on hard chairs or bleachers while coaches and administrators hand out a hundreds of trophies to maybe 75 kids. Been there? Have the scoliosis to prove it?

We have, of course for the first place, the runner up, and third place. But then we go on to the: most improved, the president’s choice, the people’s choice, the best pigtails and longest text posting during a history lecture awards, the teachers choice and the most likely to succeed. It goes on ad nauseam while everyone still awake is wearing this face that feebly attempts to project interest, joy, and admiration. All the while of course we conceal what we really feel, “Would you please just finish so I can get up off this posture wrecking seating and get out of here!” We all do it, we all hate it, yet we continue. Hmmm…

Place your hand on the stove top on a recently turned off burner. Did it hurt? OK, then, let’s do it again, and better yet, make plans to do it annually. I’m sure you get my point without continuing this counterproductive behavior. Let’s return to the all-inclusive concept. We have applied the all-inclusive concept to sports, or camp, or class, or whichever activity that may touch our kids. We did it because we as parents and as a society want our kids to win. OK, nothing wrong with that, but in a spelling-bee does everyone win? In college basketball, are all who played national winners? On the battlefield does everyone win and get to come home to a plate of spaghetti?
Why, of course there were losers. There always have been lasers and winners and there always will be. The losers help establish and define the winners and set a visual goal for all to see. Losers testify to the accomplishments of the winner. They, through their failings point to one who got it just a little more right and who pushed beyond all the rest to arrive at a place where no one else was better. You know, that’s great and it’s the natural order of things, so why do we lie to our kids and tell them any different. In the broader sense, straying from the truth of things is a dangerous and sorted game that we would be well advised to never play. Go tell the antelope who was just caught by the cheetah that he is a winner. In his dying breath he/she is very likely to call you a liar. Not everyone can win, and that is just fine.
Has the spirit of Americans, like the ones who flew that B-17, G-model into a hellish aerial war, all but vanished? Have they been replaced by generations of Americans who have become weaker and more tolerant of evil, and have less courage than the generation who gave rise to them? Here’s a clue: In the day of the greatest generation, a snowflake was a thing of beauty that fell in the dead of winter and a rainbow was a beautiful display of light played out on a summer sky.
Today, in contrast, we have these “pretty” man who are brow beaten into believing anything and the women who accept them. What can they bounce back from? Anything? I remember hearing the story of a doctor actually removing my dad’s appendix which had ruptured along with an infected rib on the kitchen table (True story!). He was sick for months and never went to the hospital. The doctor told my grandfather that his son had little chances of surviving, so grand-dad said, “Then my son will die at home in his own bed.” That sick boy grew up to later graduate from college and fly sophisticated bombers over a hostile European sky on missions that almost always resulted in the deaths of one or more of his friends.
But in today’s context that doesn’t make any sense. I mean dad’s life must have been very shallow. His life was, dare I say the word, Hard! He had to work fields during his off time, hunt animals to augment their diets, and also go to school in a day when most kids were made to work to provide income for their families. And all the while, he received no recognition other than that smile from his dad or that hug or wink from his mom. But what about the squirrel hunting participation, runner up trophy? I mean how could he have turned out to be anything at all without having received that trophy? There were no counselors present when he failed to win a baseball game! Heck, he never had the time to play baseball in the first place. No one made mention of the feelings he brought home from world war two, no PTSD awareness, nothing. Nope, somehow all those men and women just had to deal with it.
We Americans were different then. I’d suggest that we were stronger, and by my reckoning, we were better. Working for something, then failing at reaching the goal is just fine. There I said it, crucify me if you need to, but I speak the truth. Not everyone succeeds the first time or the second and for some, ever. Succeeding may not be what is most important after all, you know, but perhaps just admitting that you fell short. Follow that up with picking yourself up afterward, then from the wreckage and in phoenix like fashion, rebuilding and taking another stab at it just may be the right thing to do.
These people who count themselves millennials have been dealt a bad hand. We told them they are winners, although statistics would suggest otherwise. We told them that they can succeed at anything, although in the workplace they are amassing quite a record pointing to the exact opposite. Did we build in courage? Resilience? Or any other trait necessary to stand up against an entire world that really does not like us, or did we build a generation of wimps? You decide, I already have.
My world was much different. In the Army, a sergeant once punched me (before my warrant officer days) while I stood at attention. He did it because through my inattentiveness as a sergeant I had allowed a M-60 main battle tank to be damaged. I stood there and took it. Today we would have placed the man on charges, we have placed men on charges for just trying to make men out of boys. Another called me a (please excuse the use of the term), a _____ for not trying something I should have. From that low point, I later came back and won the distinguished tank crew in the annual gunnery. Today that man would no doubt face charges of sexual harassment.
Ya know what I say to the modern day madness? To the culture that produces these incredibly well-groomed female like males, you disgust me. And since we are talking about it, aren’t the women these days becoming tougher than the girly, purse carrying boys they date? I think so. I run a security team at a church. We train hard, I had a rib broken while practicing some disarming techniques with another team member. We are always short of folks, and so I solicit help amongst so called men to join up. But almost none of them will. I point out that I am mid-sixties, one is seventy something with fast approaching expiration dates, and others are women, but the so-called males seem comfortable to allow another to stand up for them. Shame on you!
Where did that attitude come from? Did the men of Valley Forge feel that way? Of Concorde Mass, or hamburger hill? Or Iwo, or Utah beach or a thousand other places where American men stood and proved they were willing to take it all the way to the win or die trying. Millennials are a dismal failure in my view. Soon there will be few real men and women left to protect your girly arses, so you had better wake up and start doing your part. Wake up and change or learn how to speak Mexican, Chinese, Russian, or whatever. You had better also learn to pray to the east and on holy nights in that twisted culture, say “Be gentle!” Or you can square up and punch that sucker right between the eyes, pause to smile just a bit, then do it again.
The generation at fault is not the millennials, but the generations who set the table for them. We made life oh so very safe, removed fear, and hunger and want, and made life all-inclusive for everyone and everything including a host of social cancers. We told this hamster generation that you are all winners, you can always have your way, and life is yours, freely given with not so much as a bit of tarry on your part. It is your right after all (The greatest lie???)
Friends, we have lied through our teeth. Life aint easy. Almost none of what you have been told is true! You should not be tolerant of some abomination, you should abhor it. You will not get a reward if you lose, you will just lose. The idea of a safe zone where you can escape to in the event you are scared is called prayer. It is better to take the swing and land a good one on that bully’s nose than to report him to the teacher, but by all means do that afterward. Removing guns does not make you safer, it makes you vulnerable. Creating a legal structure where people are held liable for an honest mistake is wrong, change it or burn it down. We shouldn’t celebrate gay pride month, we should never have had such a thing in the first place. Look, if God didn’t create it, it isn’t good or right. Weakness is the toolbox of the devil, and this generation needs to wake up and realize that you have been so protected, so manipulated, so lied to and shielded from reality that you are honestly, really, living in a for real “Matrix” movie.
For God’s sake, for our nation’s sake, for your sake wake up. Our only real option is for you to suck it up, return to what God made you to be, and take the red pill!
(Did I get that right?? Was the red pill the one that lead to reality???)

CIEMR / Our National Anthem
« on: June 22, 2019, 12:03:22 PM »
Just in case anyone doesn't know the National Anthem here are the words:

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

CIEMR / Inconvenient truth
« on: June 22, 2019, 09:37:12 AM »
Just like the Democrat party thread I started to consolidate and try to get at what they are all about, this will be a thread that simply looks at the truth regardless of where the proverbial axe may fall. If it points to Christians being the bad guy or points to inner city gangs as being mostly black, then so be it. This will be a look at the truth of the matter devoid of a lefty spin

Humor, Good Stuff, and Red Neck Practices! / I golf on Fridays...
« on: June 22, 2019, 09:19:40 AM »
For those of you who play a lot of golf – think really hard about this J

 

 

After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife went for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in all the years they had been married. On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she endured.

 

Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around his desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched - with a raised eyebrow.

 

The woman shut up and quietly sat down in a daze.  The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?”

 

"Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesday ......but I golf on Fridays."

CIEMR / Democrat watch: Lets get to know what their platform is
« on: June 21, 2019, 11:21:14 AM »
So, no idea if this thread will take off, but I thought I'd create a place to post up what today's Democrat party supports and stands for. Lets not muck around but simply shed light to what they are trying to accomplish.

Here's the first, some gender/transgender equality bill:



Every Democratic presidential candidate polling above 1% supports a bill that would force schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams.

The Equality Act, which passed the House in May with unanimous Democratic support, amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law.

The bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls, as both critics and supporters of the bill have acknowledged. The bill comes as male athletes have racked up victories in female sports.

With Republicans controlling both the White House and the Senate, the Equality Act has little to no chance of becoming law before the next election — but Democratic presidential candidates have pledged to make the bill a priority if they win in 2020.

The top seven Democratic presidential candidates in RealClearPolitics’ running average of primary polls have all publicly endorsed the legislation.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the frontrunner, said passing the Equality Act would be his top legislative priority if elected.

Biden said the bill “is long overdue, and will ensure LGBTQ Americans are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.”

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is polling second behind Biden, co-sponsored the Senate version of the Equality Act and included the bill in his presidential platform.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren also co-sponsored the bill and pledged to “fight tooth and nail” to get it passed if elected.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said he strongly supports the Equality Act and called the bill’s passage in the House “a historic moment for equal rights in America.” Buttigieg is polling fourth in the RealClearPolitics average. (RELATED: Here Are The Radical Policies Democrats Are Putting On The Table For 2020)


Pete Buttigieg
 Thanks to the work of thousands of activists, organizers, and voters, the Equality Act has in passed the House. This is a historic moment for equal rights in America. Now the bill goes to the Senate, and the time to call your Senator is now: (202) 224-3121[/i]

California Sen. Kamala Harris co-sponsored the Senate bill, describing its passage as “a pivotal part in ending homophobia and transphobia and moving our culture forward to be more inclusive and respectful.”

The Equality Act is prominently featured in Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s plan for “LGBTQ+ Equality,” which he released earlier in June. O’Rourke pledged to get the bill passed into law if he is elected.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey also co-sponsored the Equality Act in the Senate, and publicly signed onto a petition singer Taylor Swift launched in support of the bill.

A spokesman for O’Rourke’s campaign declined to comment on the Equality Act’s interference in girls’ sports. The other six Democratic campaigns did not return requests for comment.

Apologies for soiling this honorable forum with a communist POC like this, but we military need to know what is happening in the rear area...While we keep the pig pen safe. However, we who risk our lives and sometimes on a daily basis risk creating another fatherless family, need to know about the people who seek to lead us. This Harris person is definitely not qualified to lead anything except herself off her own socialist clift!

ELECTION 2020
Kamala Harris Says Illegal Immigrants Who Endanger Kids Are Like Military Fathers
Democrat 2020 hopeful actually made this comparison
By The Political Insider Staff | June 17, 2019

In what can only be described as a bizarre comparison, 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) (shown above right) tweeted a Father’s Day message on Sunday in which she equated illegal immigrants and criminals with deployed military fathers.

Aside from the obvious ill-advised effort to equate these groups of people in the first place, it should be blatantly obvious that illegals and criminals put their own children in harm’s way — while military fathers, through their patriotic service to this nation, are forced by circumstance to be separated from their families.

Well … obvious to almost anyone with a respect for our nation, its laws, and our military.

But not Kamala Harris, apparently, in our view.

“Today I’m thinking of the fathers who can’t be with their children because they were ripped from their sons and daughters at the border,” she wrote.

“The fathers who can’t celebrate today because they can’t afford bail. The fathers who are deployed. Don’t forget them.”

Someone should ask her. Here are follow-up questions for Ms. Harris:

1.) Were you thinking of the fathers who committed a crime and lost their children at the border when the Obama administration was separating them?

2.) Will you be equally as pensive if your fantasy of jailing President Donald Trump comes true? Will you be thinking of him during this fictitious scenario on any forthcoming Father’s Days?

3.) Do you think of those who had fatherhood ripped away from them through abortion?

4.) What about the minority fathers who were jailed when she was a prosecutor for the crime of their kids having skipped school?

5.) Was she also thinking of the father of a woman who was repeatedly sexually harassed by a top aide under her watch as attorney general of California?

Inquiring minds want to know.

A better way to handle this. If Harris wants to elicit sympathy for families at the border, that’d be a discussion for another day — as would sympathy for criminals.

She could have lamented those situations separately.

But to throw military men into the same breath as these groups is appalling.

Those men are away from their children because they are fighting for American rights and freedoms. Men in jail or separated from their children at the border are in that situation because they broke the law.

Build Threads / LML Duramax build part 6
« on: June 20, 2019, 07:51:46 PM »
Part 5 sat dormant for long enough so I'll let that sleeping horse rest in peace.

Was just freshening my now eight year old C-Max truck, but like always, I go a bit further than just a simple cleanup. And Ravin8, the 02 Burb has not come out of the shop just yet so I have some time to spend on this great truck which is sorely lacking some TLC.

I started with a fresh oil change using the Delvac. The stuff is cheap, works great, and I feel better knowing there isn't oil in there from the last century. I still use the dual filter thing from Amsoil, but I just use two quality filters on there and change them both.

After that, I greased everything. and used the gun to pump out the old grease. I replaced it with some quality red grease of a marine grade.

The chassis was given to the wire brush and then treated to some fresh paint and undercoating. It looks pretty darned good now.

I had a pesky slow seep from those Amsoil remote filter hoses, so I dismantled all that, added new seals and cleaned it up like new.

CIEMR / Hmmm...Maybe Impeachment proceedings are a good idea!
« on: June 16, 2019, 06:19:59 PM »
 Trump can subpoena ANYONE at impeachment hearing......

This could get very interesting!

ONE MAN'S OPINION (this is why Pelosi is scared)

I have a degree in Political Science, and I am a card-carrying Libertarian. I’ve been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next.

1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THAT THEY WANT.. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazille, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing coverup activities. A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath - and they will turn on each other. That’s already starting.

4. Lastly, one more thing will happen – the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They’ll incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged somehow.

Construction and Building / Zero to Hero: My home project
« on: June 15, 2019, 11:45:34 AM »
So, yea, even with bringing in the Suburban to a finish, albeit, not a complete win, I have had my two pre-Rangers out of school. And we all know that idle hands with loads of time is not fertile ground for good things to grow.
Therefore I decided to keep them busy.

Our home was a custom built thing that she moved into in March of 2007. It is a bit large and was pretty expensive and boasts lots of custom features, but it also served as a place to finish out three girls and raise two boys from some tender pre-school days. What that means is that it has suffered a bunch of abuse! Add to that, a tornado went right through my front lawn and hit my house taking out a good third of my landscaping and a bunch of trim on the exterior. It was not a big one or the damage would have been much worse.

I didn't even get to live in the thing for the initial few years. My "Work" kept me abroad for many years where I only got to visit the family and home a few weeks a year. Most of the folks who are regulars here know all about that, sort of.

Well the bottom line, considering with the ravages of time constantly at work, My working on our farm (Not here), building SquareD, the suburban, my truck, constantly fixing broken John Deere tractors, the place needs some TLC. So the boys and I got together and began what we call the "Zero to Hero" project. We are giving ourselves from March when we started until Christmas to take the place from, "in need of repair, somewhat faded and run down, and wanting for a makeover," to something besting its original glory.

Our advantages are we now have grown up a little and can actually work. The trees that survived the twister are now mature and 25-30 feet tall. The back lot is all cleared, in grass and looking nice. We have beaucoup equipment to use and we have a rough idea of what to do.

I wasn't taking pics like I do with car projects, but I can list what we have done so far.

D.O.T. / The japanese surrender of 1945. This is how we do business.
« on: June 14, 2019, 10:01:54 PM »
A FASCINATING
PIECE OF HISTORY

 
Why did the US choose a US Navy Iowa-class battleship as the location for
Japan's surrender in World War 2 even though they were in Tokyo Bay
and could have used a building on land? Pure symbolism. Nothing says
"you're utterly defeated" than having to board the enemy's massive battleship in the waters
of your own capital city.

A naval vessel is considered sovereign territory for the purposes of accepting a
surrender. You just don't get that if you borrow a ceremonial space from the host country. In addition,
the Navy originally wanted the USS South Dakota to be the surrender site. It was President Truman who changed
it to USS Missouri, Missouri being Truman's home state.

The Japanese delegation had to travel across water to the Missouri, which sat at the center of a huge US fleet. It's a bit like those movie scenes where someone enters a big-wig's office, and the big-wig is sat silhouetted at the end of a long room,
behind a massive desk. The appellant has to walk all the way to that desk along a featureless space, feeling
small, exposed, vulnerable and comparatively worthless before the mogul enthroned in dramatic lighting before
him. By the time he gets there the great speech he had prepared is reduced to a muttered sentence or
two.

In addition, the USS Missouri flew the flag of Commodore Perry's 19th century gun-boat diplomacy mission that opened the closeted Edo-era Japan to the world and forced upon them the Meiji restoration which ended the rule of the samurai class. The symbolism here is pretty clear - "this is how we want you to be, and remember what happens to countries that defy us." It was particularly humiliating for a proud country like Japan, and that was entirely the
point.

The symbolism of the ceremony was even greater than that. The ship was anchored at the
precise latitude/longitude recorded in Perry's log during his 1845 visit, symbolizing the purpose of both
visits to open Japan to the West. Perry's original flag was also present, having been flown all the way
from the Naval Academy for the ceremony.
 
When the Japanese delegation came aboard, they were forced to use an accommodation
way (stairs) situated just forward of turret #1. The freeboard (distance between the
ship's deck and the water line) there makes the climb about twice as long as if it had been set up
farther aft, where the freeboard of the ship is less. NOTE: This was even more of an issue for the Japanese
surrender party as the senior member, Foreign Affairs Minister Shigemitsu, was crippled by an assassination
attempt in 1932, losing his right leg in the process.
 
The #1 and #2 turrets had been traversed about 20 degrees to starboard. The ostensible
reason for this was to get the turret overhangs out of the way to create more room for the ceremony on the
starboard veranda deck, but in fact this would have only required traversing turret #2 had it been the real
reason. However, the turret position also put the gun tubes directly over the heads of the Japanese. They
were literally boarding the ship "under the gun”.
 
The honor guard of US sailors (side boys) were all hand-picked to be over six feet
tall, a further intimidation of the short-statured Japanese. The surrender documents themselves, one copy
for the Allies and one for the Japanese contained identical English-language texts, but the
Allied copy was bound in good quality leather, while the Japanese copy was bound with light canvas whose
stitching looked like it had been done by a drunken tailor using kite string.
 
After the signing ceremony, the Japanese delegation was not invited for tea and
cookies; they were shuffled off the ship as an Allied air armada of
over 400 aircraft flew overhead as a final reminder that American forces
still had the ability to continue fighting should the Japanese have second thoughts
on surrender.

Now you know………

Faith Discussion / A little boy's prayer...
« on: June 14, 2019, 01:52:43 PM »
So I heard about this boy who really wanted a new bicycle, so he prayed that night before going to bed.

“Heavenly Father, I really want a new bicycle, could you please give me one tomorrow morning.”

And with that he went to sleep.

The next morning, he awoke and peering outside his bedroom door, guess what he saw?

Nothing! Yep, there was no new bicycle.  So, perplexed by what just happened, he went to his pastor and talked to him about what had just transpired.

The pastor advised the boy that he needed to pray in faith, believing that God will answer his prayer.

So again, just like the night before, the boy prayed as hard as he knew how, “Heavenly Father, I really want a new bike, I am asking you for one please. And I am believing in my heart you will give it to me. Thank you and ah-men.”

Waiting until eight o’clock, the boy peered confidently out his bedroom door into the hallway, full in anticipation about which model and color bicycle that God had chosen to give him. But just like the previous morning, the hallway and the rest of the house was devoid of any new bike.

Somewhat disappointed and shaken that the pastor’s advice was in some way flawed, he visited the man once again and told him about what had happened.

The pastor told the boy, “Son, you really have to mean it, when you pray, I suggest you get serious.”

So that evening the boy walked over to his neighbor’s house where there was a small statue of Mother Mary in the garden by the door. The boy picked up the statue and carried it to a nearby hilltop where he set the statuette before him and began to pray.

“Heavenly Father, this is your mother who I have sitting before me. If you ever want to see her again…”

CIEMR / Job well done. Sarah Huckabee Sanders
« on: June 14, 2019, 09:20:46 AM »
Job well done!

Farewell to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you were magnificent as the President’s Spokesperson. On a daily basis you had to enter the den of liars known as the presidential press pool and wrestle those masters of the spin. So many times you simply crushed them, and it was clear to see your weapon of choice, the truth.

The irony of this is so thick and obvious and yet not a word or comment from the lyin’ left. Progressives are all about: pro this or pro that but, more importantly and if they were sincere about it, they promote women’s equality. On that point I have to side with them, women should have an equal opportunity in most areas and should be treated equally. (Note: As a combat veteran I have to side with my experience and say that sending all but the most athletic women into a fight is placing them and the men they fight with at unnecessary risk). And yet we have this Mrs Sanders who just finished a tenure working directly for the sitting American president, and having done a pretty good job as press secretary, however we see no accolades from progressive women on the left!

How’s that? Does being a republican, or being a conservative political activist, or being a conservative working mom, or a God fearing conservative somehow taint the fact that she is a biological female press secretary for the President? I mean, the core, she is still, biologically a woman? Why can’t liberals put those facts together? Oh and while I’m on that, just two sexes, not one hundred and whatever. No furies or emos, or whatever…Sorry, but I strayed and I started laughing (Actually really did!). Can anyone see anything wrong with this failure to make note of a successful woman in high places? Why aren’t the equality loving left not saying things like, “well, even though I disagree with her political orientation, she did a great job”?

The progressives cannot actually see it, they are incapable of stitching those two realities together, being conservative and a successful woman. According to their mental paralysis, a person must actually agree with them (Progressives) to even be considered for any positive comment at all. You don’t subscribe to the lunacy and you do not advance past go. I think that after watching them evolve during the obummer years, come out of the closet, and push this social/equality/climate change/sexual free for all agenda for some years now, that they actually have devolved in terms of cultural development. I think one could make a case for a mass mental illness for this rather large easily led group known as liberals.

 Matthew 7:13–14, Jesus said, "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Here in Mrs Sarah, we have a woman who is an actual working mom. You know, over there on the home front, she has kids! She has a (likely neglected) husband, and she once had her personal time before taking this impressive job. That, along with other things like sleep had to be set aside for the sake of her employer. Yea, she gave it all up, although I am sure she tried to work it all in some harmony while serving President Trump. Any working mom, or anyone who is married to one, or anyone who knows one will tell you, this balancing of career/family/self does out all that well. And yet Mrs Sanders turned out to be quite a bit bigger than the pants she put on. She, in my view, became a force of nature and she was large and in charge in any venue where she met with the den of liars.

Ever watch her in her daily parley with the snakes in that den of truth spinners? Heck, she was scary. She “Man-handled” them with ease. Have you seen the pretty face ask the coy question of press secretary only to be B-slapped by Mrs Sanders? Mrs Sarah was a master of skinning the fat off the loaded questions and delivering an answer that real Americans wanted to hear. She muscled the message past the lefty camouflage netting and got it to we the people. From a personal standpoint, Mrs Sanders taught me to watch her and ignore the person asking the question much the same as I ignore telemarketers. Man I am going to miss her.

As I looked over the various morning news channels earlier, I could see talking faces say things like, “She won’t be missed,” or “I never liked her.” Mrs Sanders, wear those comments as decorations just like we in the military wear our awards. They show that you participated in a fight and were recognized as a strong adversary. The best reward you can get from your enemy is for him to hate you and if you’re lucky name you. I remember when I found out some Taliban group were calling my group the desert devils. We actually make that our unit name, “The Desert Diablos.”

Remember just a couple short years ago how the lyin-left cried a river on the departure of Obama, and (more so?) the loss of the witch Hillary? (And I have heard from more than one source that she did participate in satanic rituals as a witch…NO JOKE!) If I were them, I’d be soaking out a hand towel too. Their passing into the annals of has-been liar history, was the progressive’s best chance at continuing the party.

But the party came to a crashing halt. And that caused a wave of anger that persists and grows to this day. The focal point of that hatred is, of course, Mr. Trump. And the spokesperson for that man was Mrs Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She was real and met daily with them and grappled. (Until she cancelled all that…loved that one, nice!!!) To the leftists, Mrs Sanders was simply a stage on which they could employ to start the spin. But Mrs Sanders, fresh in from mommy duties bested those snakes at every turn.

Heck if I was a progressive, lefty, liberal, I would have felt good at least to be beaten by the best. No, unisex liars club, you will not sing the accolades of Mrs Sanders will you? Though your message be woman’s equality, for some reason, you seemed to have missed the point that she actually is a WOMAN, A MOM, A WOMAN HOLDING A TOP LEVEL JOB…and on and on. You can’t see any of that because she does not line up behind you like goslings in a line about this time of year crossing a road. Nope a woman with a brain is not allowed in your club, hell, she doesn’t even exist to you, does she?

Great Job Mrs Sanders, and thank you! Myself and millions of real Americans will miss you!

« on: June 11, 2019, 08:58:08 AM »
Saw this on WMD:

LGBTQI ETC.: WHERE DOES THIS NONSENSE STOP?

At first I said to myself, "When Satan takes over."

But then I just as quickly realized that Satan will actually add a whole new list of abominations, err, letters, to the list.

So

The answer actually is:

When Jesus returns to become King over all the earth.

There, that was easy! ;-)))

CIEMR / Another CIEMR
« on: June 10, 2019, 10:38:45 AM »
So, how many people out there believe it is time for the Christian community to become more outspoken? It appears to me as if the voice of few has taken over the conversation and has somehow quieted the voices of middle America. I once wrote a piece on the cowardice of Christian Americans in just letting their values get bulldozed into the gutter by the noisy fringe, and I believe that is true to a great extent.

But how many are left who would stand their ground? Not many I think, as fighting for something is not in the American genome. I know that a lot of folks here would like to think we are fighters, but statics would suggest otherwise. During the revolutionary war, I believe only 3.5% of Americans jocked up and stood the ramparts against the British. That percentage fell to some incredible lows with the war on terror. I think that around one half of one percent actually did something and fought our enemies.

Yea, we stand around with pride thumping our collective chests thinking we did it. But the truth is far different. A very few did it. And a very few supported them while they did it. Most of America concentrated on the next bachelorette.

I saw many of my fellow warriors come home to a vacuum. The amount of support we get/got is laughable. The VA is a collection of clerks, actually sometimes hateful non caring clerks who manage some decent medical people who would otherwise feel empowered to do their job. I know I am getting off on a tangent here, I just want to make a point about how much America really does not care.

My examples:
1. The VA thing I just mentioned
2. A constant loss of freedoms
3. Moral decay
4. The advancement of fringe beliefs into mainline thought
5. Entitlement (See: millennials)
6. A dysfunctional Congress
7. An inability of anyone to point out the obvious
8. The feminization of the American male
9. Demonizing of things which just recently were thought of as normal

And on and on.
So again how many of you would like to see our pulpits stop catering to the popular view and start speaking up for what is right? And when authorities come to cart them away, how many of you would have the courage to stand in the way? How many of you would be willing or actually take up the challenge during those challenging one on one's?

I doubt there are many who would. Your veteran warriors would. I don't care how little this nation did to actually help them, never the less, they would stand to the man and march to their deaths if they had to. But most of the Bachelorette crowd would simply continue to do nothing and hope it all will just go away.

I was asked to give a talk to a men's ministry group once. I was asked to talk about something that happened in Baghdad. So I did and went on for about thirty minutes talking about things I guessed my audience (Devoid of warriors) scarcely knew, and I concluded my talk. Afterward, I was engaged by several men, one at a time. One man, wearing his cardigan sweater stated that all that was just incredible, and on and on but he finished rather oddly. He said "You know, if they came for me like that, well, I think I'd just have to surrender and do what they asked." He went on to state that he had never served (You don't say!), but I stopped him. I was enraged and choking it back.

In my classic style, I stepped in close, face to face and said, "Aren't you glad some young man had the courage to stand in your stay?" His expression turned to one of fear. I told him in a voice obviously suppressing rage, "Get away from me you f___ing coward!" Ya, I can't believe I said that either but it just came out. You see I hate cowards, but like some psychotic patient on the seventh floor, I will stand in the front of them to protect them from danger.

I could go on and on, but I would like to end with just a simple thought. The nation is on a collision course with a disaster and there are quite a few of us who are not happy with that. Remember that 3.5% freed this nation from the mightest military on earth a couple hundred years ago...

22
From my perspective as a warrior;

What we see are non warriors subjecting their morals and values and (lack of) experience on to something that they do not understand. I can say, that I admire the admiral for demonstrating the right to hang a set of balls. Sorry for being crude, but is anything about killing nice? And what is it that ultimately warriors have to do to other human beings?

Can you see who a command mentality that casts an eye toward making transvestites comfortable in the military really has no, and I mean NO clue as to what makes us successful on the battlefield. Not the battlefield of some guy launching a tomahawk, but for the guy who is low on ammo at night, with his buddy bleeding out who has his Gerber Mark-1 at the ready. If you don't know what a gerber mark-1 is, you don't need to be making any decisions regarding true warriors.

I just hate all this panty waste sniveling of the politically correct. For the sake of the safety of our nation, I speak out, naw, shout out against them. They will not build a fighting force, they will only work to appease the libtards in higher places

And as for those games of twister in your office...I assume you're a seal and you are one of the contestants...I'd like to participate if this still goes on! Bring a little Army awareness to you squids.

Go get em sir, God Bless ya!

CIEMR / I'm addin' this to my CIEMR collection!
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:17:50 AM »
I wonder which psychological factor energizes this??

It seems so that everyone feels they are "right" or mo-better put, "correct" about a given topic. I think what we have lost is the ability to park it in neutral for awhile and not be offended or anything, and just listen to the speaker to ascertain the factual basis for their belief.

So for some reason, I find myself debating university level professors more often that I'd prefer. And I usually can win any argument. The technique I use is to go "Quiet mode," and really listen to what they are saying. Almost always I discover that the very basis for the argument construct is based in a falsehood. The secret, you see is to determine on what the argument is based.

Many men are bad because men eat cheese. Some eat green cheese, and since the green cheese is mined on the moon, it is bad and makes men bad. Most arguments liberals make are based on some base premise which is wholly untrue. We need to dial down carbon emissions because nuclear power plants are emitting too much carbon...and crazy stuff like that. Stopping the US from using coal will positively global temp rise. Well we have a few dozen coal fired plants whereas China and Brazil, have what 5,000 and working on 2,000 more. We couldn't make a pimple on a nat's butt difference in total emissions if we just all committed suicide.

It's easy, just try it. But the larger issue is that something in the logic center of the left brain ain't werkin'. So I wonder has all these diagnosis of kids with whatever abnormal behavior bull crap medicine is labeling today has destroyed or affected the human brain's ability to reason. One might just argue that big pharma wants us all to be sick so they can pump us full of their product so they can all afford new homes on long island.

I don't know but backwards is fast becoming accepted as normal and the rate of change is quickening. Twenty to thirty years ago, being gay was not a healthy thing, but hidden. And a few scant decades later, it is celebrated as some kind of new freedom, elevating one to a higher level of humanity. What it really does is lock in the devil's grip on that person's coffin, which is marked for a one way trip straight down. But try and swim against the tide and you are labeled as one of the ever popular or becoming popular bad things like being white or old or "religious" or saying Islam just may be responsible in some tiny part for JUST ABOUT EVERY WAR GOING ON.

Ya know, I am just some old, dirt floor Armee warrant officer helo pilot. And in today's construct, none of that is good. But in being these things, knowing who I am and not giving a shat what some lunatic thinks about me allows me to simply say the simple truth, and is's almost as though it is expected. And I wear the insults as honorably as I did my various colorful things I used to hide holes in my dress green uniform. But you who aren't as fortunate to be old, may want to start pickin' up the guidion and puttin' your right in front of your left and fight this fight yourself. We old geezers ain't gonna be around forever.

Hmmm just had a nice thought. lying on my death bed taking my last breath with my loving family all around, using the last of my strength to choke the life out of some liberal...Hmmm, so nice...

Did I just CIEMR??? ya, think so...cup of columbian soothing the throat and addin' some respectable weight to my chewed up hands...Hmmm, another nice thought, what a mornin' its starting to be!

CIEMR / Good essay on free speech (Or lack there-of)
« on: June 04, 2019, 10:23:05 PM »
NEW ARTICLE: When Free Speech is Dangerous

A guy walks into a barber shop, as the joke goes, but this is no joke.
I walked into that barber shop and took a chair to get a routine trim cut. 
After some small talk, I mentioned the latest story about Muslim children at a Philadelphia mosque. A video shows them singing songs filled with hate and shows one girl singing "we will chop off their heads” to “liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque”.
Admittedly, this would be shocking to most anyone. In this case, the barber was intolerant of the idea that the story was true.
“Ahh, that’s fake! Just another example of Islamophobia”, he shouted.
I replied that I did not think so because it was caught on video and the Imam in other sermons that were blatantly anti-Semitic and radical.
Unconvinced, the barber refused to accept it as anything but exaggerated fallacy. And as for videos, he said they’re “doctored”.
I tried to explain that the Mosque officials have apologized and are launching an investigation, having admitted to the hate-filled speeches by a guest Imam, although he did several similar sermons over months at the same Mosque.
The barber was agitated.
It was clear that the conversation had to end as the escalating emotions were not constructive to a conversation or debate.
After getting my haircut, I sat in my car and thought about it. I wondered if we are now a society that cannot talk civilly about a core group of subjects.
Islam is one of those subjects, but there are other flash points.
I’ve tried to talk to those who champion climate change and global warming. While I agree that humanity is contributing to the problem, I don’t believe America can solve it alone while penalizing itself by spending billions of dollars. Many other countries contribute much more pollution than we do and they do nothing about it.  The most important violator is China.
But don’t try to debate that with a climate change advocate. If you don’t immediately agree, you will be called a denier, dumb and dangerous.
Then we have the New Green Deal (most do not know what it is) which says we are nearing the time when humanity reaches the point of no return. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed that we have only 12 years left. Beto O’Rourke had to outdo her and claims that we have only 10 years.
Never mind that Al Gore said in 2006 that we have only ten years to save the planet from global warming. He said the experts can’t be wrong.
Other claims are memorable. On Earth Day, 1970, scientists said that civilization would probably end in 30 years. At the same time, all the scientists/geologists were claiming that the world’s supply of oil would run dry by the year 2000. I remember this well as I endured the ‘70’s Oil Crisis.
On the other hand, some were forecasting the Earth to be eleven degrees colder by the year 2000.
Then we have the most explosive subject of all: abortion. Try having any kind of normal conversation about life over abortion. Protestors on both sides collide, sometimes violently. It gets brutal while the country’s political actions are moving farther apart.
In Virginia, the Governor has been talking about late term abortion and even after it is born. Most call it, “infanticide”.
At the other end of the spectrum, in Georgia, they just passed a law that says if a heartbeat can be detected, you cannot abort the baby.
Pro Choice advocates will call you a moron at the mere hint of opposition.
Pro Life advocates will silently fall into prayer or call you a killer.
There is no room for compromise. Let the lawsuits begin.
If Islam, climate change, and abortion are not inflammatory enough, there is the current in-your-face subject called, “Trump”. The opposing sides are beyond appeasement in any way.
There are Trump haters and Trump campaigners. They can’t talk to each other. Any talk about him means you risk argument, ill feeling, and lost friends and family.
I find that in all cases, people have made up their minds. They are simply closed minded, no matter what the facts are.  If one tries to present facts, one will run into the wall of “confirmation bias”.  That is, they listen only to the facts that confirm their thinking and discard those facts in direct opposition to their deep-seated bias or belief.
We are committed to our conclusions, even in the face of facts. We are chained to a specific bias and not willing to question what is right, wrong, or acceptable.
In other words, there is no basis for free thinking, free speech, free exchange.
In that sense, we are not free

26
Hmmm...

Choose carefully!

Our Heros, The "Hooah" or "Ooh-Rah" Place / Rolling Thunder this year
« on: June 04, 2019, 08:15:09 AM »
Bunch of Sergeants put this thing together. (Wish it had been a bunch of Warrant Officer Army Pilots!). Pesky darned NCO's... But God Love em' cause I sure do! Where's my Harley???


Trump Tweets Support For Rolling Thunder: 'If I Can Help, I Will'

The executive director of Rolling Thunder, the annual military event that features hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists traveling to Washington to call for full accountability for prisoners of war and missing in action service members, said that the entire membership would arrive in the nation’s capital if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom he called an “arrogant little b****,” decides to try to impeach President Trump.

Artie Muller, 74, who served as a U.S. Army sergeant in the Vietnam War and is listed on the group’s website as a co-founder, spoke at the National Mall on Monday and posited that Pelosi should be ousted from Congress for the series of investigations she is involved with. He stated, “I would like to see Nancy Pelosi and her hypocrites work on the POW issue instead of bulls***ting [and] aggravating the President of the United States, who's doing a fantastic job.” He added, “When the hell are they going to wake up? It's not their children, their mothers, their fathers that are left behind in the POW camps.”

The Washington Examiner noted, “The numbers involved in a pro-Trump rally could be large. More than 1 million bikers are believed to have traveled to D.C. for this year’s Rolling Thunder rally. And infrequent, unrelated biker activism has drawn large numbers, including a 2013 ride that brought thousands of bikers to counter protest a 9/11 event originally billed as the Million Muslim March.”

Muller also commented on the rumor that Trump had stormed out of a meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer last week, saying, “He walks out of a meeting with Nancy Pelosi not because he's had a hissy fit like she said. [It's] because he's tired of putting up with her bulls**t … We should look at her and her family background. I have to look at it myself because somebody told me her family background. They're all a bunch of damn thieves. Let's investigate Nancy Pelosi and throw her the hell out of Congress.”

Last November, Rolling Thunder decided to end their annual Memorial Day event in Washington D.C. after a disagreement with Pentagon officials over parking issues. Instead, the group decided to fragment the event into various local events next year.

Rolling Thunder’s first ride was to the Vietnam War Memorial in 1987. It was inspired after Ray Manzo, a former United States Marine Corps Corporal, discovered that American servicemen had allegedly been abandoned in Southeast Asia after the Vietnam War was over. Manzo drafted a letter to motorcycling publications; Sgt. Major John Holland, 1st Sgt. Walt Sides, and Sgt. Ted Sampley joined him to found the group. Sampley's colleague, Bob Schmitt, was looking at the Memorial Bridge, imagining the motorcycles going across it, and stated, "It will be like the sound of rolling thunder coming across the bridge." Thus the name of the group was born.

On Memorial Day 1988, 2,500 men and women made the trip to Washington D.C.; by 2018, 500,000 motorcyclists reportedly made it there.

Message from the Owner / Real Man is expanding!
« on: May 30, 2019, 10:42:53 PM »
So, in a couple words, Real Man TruckWorks and Survival is going to expand

I have purchased several domains out there and one of them is going to become the home for RMTWS along with a commercial activity and a greatly expanded faith arena, and all that linked to social media starting with a facebook page

The core identity has always been Real Man. Real Man because we strive to be one, but in a much greater sense Jesus was the real, Real Man, the greatest living example of what a real man really is. We carved out a little section of the real man world of interests and fired that up here. We discuss vehicle builds, faith, politics, enjoy some great stories, watch each other grow, build homes, prepare awesome food and on and on.

Jeremy, a guy you haven't met is a great friend of mine and a strong believer in Christ. He is also very experienced in matters of IT, website design, media and business. We have long talked about doing something like this and with his help, we will open up the next plateau, Real Men Don't Quit

So why the name? Well, I have already mentioned that I believe Jesus is the greatest real man the world has ever seen. So for that reason, real man works. He did not quit, so that meshes as well. But there's more for me. In my past while in the Army, I served as a pilot in an elite Special Operations Aviation unit, the 160th Night Stalkers. Their motto is "Night Stalkers Don't Quit." Many if not all of us often sign out correspondence with a NSDQ. The phrase is printed on photos in the president's office, the office of governors, kings, senators, congressmen, business leaders and Clint Eastwood. Had to throw him in there...if you only knew...But I'm not talking. So NSDQ morphed very easily in my mind to RMDQ, Real men don't quit, because they don't.

A real man will hang around when the going gets tough. He will be there with a sick spouse, a friend who needs help, when the nation needs defending, and you can find him on his knees praying to his God. We, however, witness a great lie being perpetrated on the American psyche, that being that men are weak, aren't smart or courageous, are in some cases painted to be toxic and on and on. I stand here and say, none of that is true. God created us to be strong, but caring. To be firm, yet understanding. To stand against all this foolishness and say, "I don't believe you, I believe in what my creator tells me. I do not believe any color is better than another, or that some are deliberately held back. I believe a man is perfected in the union of marriage to a woman. It would seem just about everything I believe in flies in the face of what the popular theories would suggest. And I also believe there are millions of you out there who believe the exact same way.

I stood on the ramparts of freedom once in some distant lands. But now the fight is right here. And just like brave men rallied the fight over there, I am hopeful that many of you will join me here and rally against the stupidity we see unfolding literally everywhere here in America.

Real Men don't Quit will be a website one step uphill being the larger organization if you will and will include RMTWS in its current form It will also have a garage where all manner of things will be for sale. There will be another section dedicated to furthering the work of the kingdom, but I am yet to have a clear concept in mind about what that should look and feel.

I have a need to monetize this activity so I/we can take it to the next level. I plan some really big things which someone is going to have to pay for so it might as well be from money we can generate here. Who knows some of you may very well work in that arena!

We will have a line of clothing that will have printed messages on the pieces. I plan to take on all of the controversial subjects of the contemporary stage and put them to bed. Each topic will be bold and in your face and be challenging. At the bottom of each "Bold" statement will be scripture upon which the statement is made. The point here is to dispel all untruths with the truth that is in the word of God. I am thinking of printing up just 1,000 of each item. Sell them all and that message is put to bed. Folks can wait and collect all of them and be a walking bible if they wish.

I am going to have all sorts of parts for sale, tools, survival equipment, books, and who knows what. Vendors we currently have will be invited to sell their wares on our site and in many cases if they are not a large enough operation will be allowed to do so for free. I will be vetting the companies, their policies, and positions on topics to ferret out those good places who we could help.

I hope to create another book or two, and this time I plan to self publish. Distant Thunder is owned by the company who signed me up to publish it. I can do little with it except watch from the sidelines. The next one will also come as an audio book, which I will read and record myself that can be downloaded from the site.

I mentioned that I plan to do some really big things, and I am setting our sights high. First, we will tithe 10% to our church which has a huge national and international missions footprint. Secondly, I want to get behind men who are being called into the ministry. When I identify that certain person who is having his life rearranged by the almighty, well, I hope to be able to send that person through the seminary as in pay for it. Yep, that is going to cost a pretty penny, but I think we can do it.

I want to be in a position to bless people in need and I want to support the people who come to call this growing organization their employment home.

Finally, very shortly you will see a new facebook page by the same name. Real Men Don't Quit will be the place where I blog about the upcoming trip across the country with my pre-rangers. I hope that trip takes on a life of its own and blesses many, we shall see. Jeremy is working it out so that when I post there, it also posts on RMTWS as well.

I was sitting at a long stop light yesterday, thinking about what I would do to keep busy during retirement, minding
my own business and patiently waiting for one of the few traffic lights to turn green, even though there was no on-coming traffic.

 
An old Nissan full of bearded, young, loud Islamic extremists shouting Anti-American slogans, with a half-burned American Flag duct-taped on the trunk of their car, and a "Remember
9-11" slogan spray painted on the side, stopped next to me.

 

Suddenly they yelled, "Allah Akbar!  Praise Allah!  Death to America!" and took off before the light changed.  Out of nowhere an 18-wheeler truck came speeding through the intersection and ran directly over their car, crushing it completely and killing everyone
in it.

 

For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself, "Man . . .that could have been me!”

So today, bright and early, I went out and got a job as a truck driver.

So just let me take a moment to say, Jody, I miss ya. Dammed fool, why did you talk me into training you and setting you up for that assignment? I carry that crap in my head every time I think about you. Well, when you died, I never got my bumper or wheels back, but, heck with it, just keep em. And Bart, which one of you boneheads were on the controls? Nothing either one of you could do? I miss the both of you and those sergeants in the back too, SSG Dorrity and Sgt Frith. See you again someday

Sorry, But no pics of Captain Bart Owens, a fellow Kentuckian and west pointer.

Faith Discussion / The basis for Morality
« on: May 15, 2019, 10:18:11 PM »
OK, what is the basis for morality?

That is a very important question in today’s discussion and where we sit as a nation. I say it is God, plain and simple with a period, nothing follows.

Not Common law or King James or King Solomon or the latest Supreme Court position on topics. It is nothing short of God, and God alone.

We all know it is wrong to steal something...Right? Why do we know that? Well, because we were created by God and his goodness is in there somewhere. Talk about common law in any basic law course you may have slept through. I remember my professor saying, "It is the way it has always been." OK, concur, but how did the always get to be always, when did it start, how did it start? Again, the simple answer is it comes from God in some way. You can watch a child take something from another child and scald them for doing it and they somehow know they were not supposed to do it. You can see it in their eyes.
Murder has always been wrong, we have always known it as early as recorded history takes note of it. How is that? It is because of our innate connection to our creator. Star wars calls it the force. The force is the spirit and the ripples flowing outward from the throne of the most high. It is everywhere, always, and never changes. He is the same today as he was yesterday and will be for an infinite number of tomorrows.
So we can correctly say the basis for morality is God and admit that is the stone cold truth.
But what if someone wanted to tamper with that notion? What then?
Maybe I steal something from my neighbor and am caught. The arresting officer comes to arrest me and I resist. I state that in my belief system I am the center of everything and everything revolves around me.  On the day in question when the theft took place, according to my belief system I was simply acting to please myself and I wanted this thing from my neighbor. I have committed no infraction because additionally, I recognize and declare that I am subject to no law of man. So I would ask that without God existing and the morality he causes to be, who is right in this scenario?
In our congress, right now, demoncratic committees are removing God from swearing in. They now ask people to answer truthfully to the best of their ability. Well, OK what if their ability hovers around say 50%. I mean they would have stayed within their boundaries, right? The problem would then be a precise definition of what constitutes truth or lying. It might be a moving scale in tune with the thinking of the day. Today it may be near God's truth, but in a setting when demoncrats are building up a case for President Trump’s impeachment, well, I think we all know that scale would slide to whatever point needed by the liars soiling those high offices.
These subtle changes constitute rust and corrosion on truth, and on the real American spirit. A bit of corrosion on the bottom of your door this spring will turn into a hole after the coming winter, and render your car a rolling junk heap the year thereafter. You have to get after corrosion wherever it starts. Satan is the master of corrosion, and I have to say I am downright impressed at his effectiveness on the weak minds of our lazy, or perhaps distracted people both good and bad.
Morality, our morality is being tampered with. Today it is a bit here and a bit there. But in some future and this author things perhaps a bit sooner than later, will morph into something a bit more sinister. Perhaps in some not too distant future, your thinking may be called into question. I mean who are you to question lawmakers sitting on high. As long as 100,000 of your closest friends don't lock arms with you and say, "Ya know, I agree with this person, and if you want him/her, then come and get him/her." As long as people do not stand together the corrosion will etch ever deeper into the very fabric and bedrock of our culture. They are going after God, and have been doing so for a long time.

Ever heard the saying, “The tail wags the dog?” It is relevant here and points to how uninvolved Americans are in their government and the social and moral change literally sweeping over us. You better wake up…You see a smaller group of voices have claimed the high ground. They have do so because the average American has allowed them to. Hitler who use the youth and poor to support his socialist tyranny were referred in private to as “Useful idiots.” You are not likely a useful idiot if you are reading this, but unfortunately, you have been bested by them. Enough idiots have gotten together driven by short lived passion, but passion nonetheless to take control of you.

So where does that place us? The idiots, the noisy idiots have and are beating us. They are kicking your proverbial arses at every turn. The tail that wags the dog…The tail is what, 5% of the mass of the dog, and is connected to the A__. But in this liberated, American progressive society that tail is doin’ all the steerin’. And you thinkers who may have even noticed what is happening seem content to have that aft section tell you where to go.

Wonder about how many of them are out there? The media (Synonym for “liar”) would have you think they are the other half. OK, fine, but it is not the truth. The truth almost never falls on the side of evil. Truth comes from God and he is pretty right pretty much all of the time. (Can I get ah-men??) No, I think the truth lies somewhere else. So citing the media as a litmus test for what’s ah-happenin’ in our couture, if you look at the number of folks who watch Fox News on a given evening at a particular time, you will see numbers ranging from tem million to twenty million! (10,000,000-20,000,000). If you check the viewership of CNN at the same time you will note one to two hundred thousand viewers. (100,000-200,000)

Notice anything there? Equal? Hardly! Divided down the middle? Not in the least. Nope cut up a pie and take out the piece belonging to CNN and you will be on a weight loss program, like 10 calories! And therein lies both the truth that this left is few in number, and a poignant truth, that you, you silent majority aint doin’ your job.
In conclusion, Morality comes from God, period. He is the one perfect reference and he wrote a book. It should be our Rand McNally for life, and the basis for all our actions and judgements. Weigh the silly left against the truth of God and it is nonexistent, it cannot stand the light of the truth. Remove the smokescreen and you see not an army facing us, but a few spoiled brats who are in need of a spanking, little more. But allow those brats to morph into Corey bookers and you have some godless person telling everyone how “the people of America” feel.
Know the truth? Act on it
See something that isn’t right, sound off and fix it
America is rusted, corroded and is driving around with some rust holes in its fenders. In front of you is a fully prepared way of life called God’s plan. Take the appropriate action, and execute!

CIEMR / Global Suicide
« on: May 11, 2019, 12:19:33 PM »

Global Suicide

If there was ever a time for a web site like this one it is now. If there was ever a time to prepare for looming disaster, it is now. If there was ever a time to repent and get right on a personal level with God, it is now.

What a freakin' mess, our planet and its people. Speaking of people are they dumber than ever in recorded history? Has all the technological advances had an effect on the people which is inversely proportional? If you don't know what being inversely proportional means, you may be a part of the problem!

People witnessing the spectacular failures of a socialist system are openly embracing it! W H A T??? So your momma tells you that fire will burn you. So you stick your hand in the fire and confirm her statement to be true. You grow up listening to a growing mass of talking heads telling you that the fire is good for you, that what we really need is more fire. So you mindlessly preach about the positive aspects of sticking your hand into the fire and not only encourage others but call those who call you stupid, racists and bigots, and old white privileged ogres who are out of sync with the coming wave of fire.

Well, there is indeed a coming wave of fire and it is going to cleanse this planet, mostly of those ushering forth its acceptance.
In South Africa, the ANC is celebrating a victory as small as it may be, a victory nonetheless. And with a president that feels it is time to seize the land from productive white people and give it back to the masses who sit on their ass_s! It has been happening for some time. Open murder of whites just because they are white.

School shootings everywhere. Islam invading Europe, and raping the peaceful people by the thousands. Hate compounding on hate for everything that is good, as if to be good is actually immoral, or somehow evil. Iran, North Korea, ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Gaza strip, Pakistan, The Taliban, California, illegal immigration, gangs, drugs, killing, homelessness, welfare, hatred of police, lawyers using the law to spin the truth into a lie, internet fraud, trade wars, pirates, genocide in Congo, Rwanda, and on and on.

And then this backwards thinking of apology for something we did not do is growing popular in America. Did the ex-vice president apologize for being white? For being privileged? Why yes he did. So his mom and his dad made him white, and he benefited from their success to rise to become a senator and finally the VP of a socialist, Muslim president. And now he is sorry he had privilege and is white. Are you kidding? So that is what it takes for a politically correct human who regrettably was sex identified at birth as a man who probably had some errant thoughts of a woman along the way, making his a sexual predator, or bigoted or something.

Bull shat! Bull Shat on all of that thinking, it’s all crap. But they (the insane and stupid) have the controls. They elect congressmen or women who hate America. They have courts which strike down laws of states from two thousand miles away. Yes, we in Kentucky who elected a right swinging governor, which btw, was our gosh dammed choice, pushed into a law a bill striking down the most heinous abortion procedure. Why? Because we the people of the Kentucky who mostly love and believe in Jesus hate abortion. We want that godless act of murder gone from our state. But what happens? Some court from afar says, no, you hillbillies have no right and I think you should allow and fund the right of a confused woman to mutilate and dismember a living human being if she is having a bad day.

The American government is being purged of God at all levels. It is a struggle to see any good being done. Congress, well specifically, the leftists which have taken control of the Demoncrats (Spelled correctly given all they are doing) have taken God out of their activities. They do not use "I swear to God" out of the swearing in oath. Evil men who sit in stuffed leather chairs peering out at us through evil eyes speak lies through lying mouths and act as though they are the new "Right."

They are not. God is always the one who is right, no one else. Those who align themselves with him are closest to being right. Those who do not are warring for the devil. And as a soldier, I have to give them credit, they are kickin' our arses at every turn.

Why? Really want to know? It is because you are mostly cowards. Paralyzed by the thought someone might think ill of you, or that you may have offended someone. Listen, you have it all wrong. It is a good, a freakin' outstanding thing to offend a devil! And that's what these purveyors of lies are, just the devils little pawns. Make them angry, that is a win for good. Tell them the truth that they are stupid and you are simply not going to listen to their childish rants any more. Tell them they are wrong and that is that. Tell them that only God is truth. Tell them that Islam is evil, and acceptance of it in your community is actually acceptance of slavery, mutilation, abuse, homosexuality, rape, hatred, and even murder. If you had a spine you would because it is the truth. No, don't say it with anger, although hatred of such things generally engenders anger, but no, say it because it is true.

Say that there is no such thing as white privilege in America. An America which affords equal opportunity to everyone and is blind to color. Say that, because that is the truth. Don't apologize for being what you are. Accept it, change what needs to be changed and drive on, clear eyed and focused on the only one who can save any of us or all of us, Jesus.

I'm so sick and friggin tired of all this crap all around us all the time! Current thinking: Let’s control guns by registering those who own them with the hope of one day confiscating them, let’s do that so that criminals will no longer kill us with them. WHAT? See what I mean. The only thing that is going to stop those murderous criminals is a good man/woman with a gun, who possess the courage to use it. Now a lot of you have guns but you have no courage. Maybe that is not your fault, I really don't know, but you are simply sheep. Thank God in heaven for sheep dogs! (You would identify them as soldiers, marines, police, guards, everyday heroes who answer the call).

Seriously you fellow Americans who sit on your fat arses and do nothing, though you may love the Lord and warm a phew on Sunday, you will not count in the day that is coming. You will let another stand for you. We have been doing it for a long time. Who stood for Jesus as that poor man was beaten almost to death? No one, even the apostles denied him. I suppose no man has or ever had that kind of courage, but I just want you to know, while I'm on the subject of Jesus, that he did stand for you, all of you, and for me. I am not the man he was, not one millionth, but I just hope the next time someone says "God-Dammit" that I can remember to say, hey, ya know, that offends me, and I have rights too! I hope i do that, but honestly, I doubt that any of you will. I am no better than anyone here, that's for sure, but looking at all the bull crap that is coming down on our heads, I just have to believe that all of you, but the millions failed to do anything when you were needed.

What is that famous phrase, "All that is needed for evil to succeed, is for good man to do nothing." It’s true. So own it my fellow Americans. When you see two men kissing in TV and everyone looking on them lovingly as two liberated souls. Just remember, you did that. The next time you hear a senator or congressman lie to all of us, yep, it’s on you. You put him there. Watching the game that day or fishing, or whatever you did instead of voting is what allowed that vermin to sit and rule over YOU! If someone keys your car because you have an American flag affixed to it, just pay the fee to repaint it and smile because you failed to kick the snot out of that brat when he/she was your child and you weren't doing your job as a father.

When you see exposed nude bodies on your TV while you sit there with your seven year old grandson/daughter, well, it’s there because you continue to buy the products of the companies who produce that filth. When you have to stand outside, below freezing early in the morning to pray with your children outside school, you are the coward that did not show up at the school board meeting and stand on someone's desk and say, to hell with that! My children will pray in class any time they damn well please!

Cowards, sit back and enjoy the ride. It's going to be interesting. You will sit idly by and allow your freedoms to erode. You will allow presidents to be elected who give $150B to Iranians who are using that money to build a nuclear weapon so they can usher in a holy war against Israel, against Gentiles, and for Satan. Yep, just sit and warm up some more popcorn. Own it and add a couple more pounds around the waistline while you're doing it. I'm sick of you for the most part.

I almost I wish sometimes that I did not serve with honorable men on distant battlefields. That I did not see them sacrifice. I wish those guys hadn't died in my helicopter making me see what real sacrifice is like. I wish that I hadn't seen men with awful wounds, jock back up and ride back out of the gate because other Marines or soldiers were in trouble. I wish sometimes I wasn't surrounded by men of courage who call me out of the doldrums to do something. Heck, I'm gettin' old, younger men ought to be standing in my stay. But most of the young men I see ore just pretty girls, no longer men. Skinny jeans, manicured, pedicured, hair moussed up and just oh so right and witty. Seriously, if there was ever a need for a sex change, I think it is needed by most of the American male (Can I say that...Male??) youth. And heck for that matter, the women these days can for the most part, kick your girly men’s butts all over the highway if they chose to. You people are so freakin' stupid, look at what you put up with.

Women, why do you settle for this? Why don't you knock that non performing male parasite in the head with a frying pan. Do you think real men are going to care? I wouldn't, they need it. Why do you accept this strange behavior? Do you need to be impregnated that badly? Given some of the skinny legged girly men I see walking around, if I were a woman, I think I prefer artificial insemination! Ladies, do you want to have this gay crap rammed down your throats or would you rather it just go back into hiding? Be honest. Why don't you come to church? Why don't you make that woman with a penis you are married to come with you. I mean, in this modern America, women are more that equal you know. When history is rewritten by the freaks of the future, it will talk of the women Marines storming the beaches at Iwo-Jima while their male assistants baked pastries onboard the rainbow colored GNF (Gay Naval Fleet).

That history will talk of how the evil Jews were rumored to have been placed in internment camps in Hawaii during the world war two, but that is only an unproven rumor, as fake as the supposed moon landing that privileged white men lied about in 1969. Yup, you cowards are writing your own history. Please count me out. I think I'll remain a happy old, white, privileged, bigoted, racist, homo and Islam phobic mal-adjusted and PTSD scarred somebody that we'd really be better off without.

Yea, I'm angry...

If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer's credibility... 
 
Q: 'Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?' 
 
A: 'No, sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.' 
 
Q: 'Officer, who provided this description?' 
 
A: 'The officer who responded to the scene.' 
 
Q: 'A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?' 
 
A: 'Yes, sir. With my life.' 
 
Q: 'With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?' 
 
A: 'Yes sir, we do!' 
 
Q: 'And do you have a locker in the room?' 
 
A: 'Yes, sir, I do.' 
 
Q: 'And do you have a lock on your locker?' 
 
A: 'Yes, sir.' 
 
Q: 'Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?' 
 
A: 'You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’


The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

Faith Discussion / Understand your enemy
« on: May 02, 2019, 11:32:55 AM »
So here are the facts:
Islam and all false religions and Gods are already conquered.
Jesus will reign as the one and only King of mankind on earth someday
The devil and all his schemes will ultimately fail.
In the spiritual world, nothing trumps the name of Jesus, NOTHING.
The name above all names...Haleiugh!

But we live in the physical and the here and now. So this is a real fight to we who still draw a breath. The enemy is real, at your gate and knocking at your door. Not some imagined possibility of a contingency, nossir Islam is here and it is here to change you or kill you.
So what cha gonna do?
Prayer my friend, PRAYER.
Repent of your personal sin. Get your house in order, then pray as a righteous man, praying powerful prayers that will be heard. Send a fragrance of praise up into the holy room and let our Father know he has a willing man here on earth, ready for a mission, an assignment. Then when given that mission, execute it in confidence that you are doing what is right.




 Interesting reading.   Believe a good person.

 

Everyone must read this as we welcome Muslims into our mainly Christian country.

 This has been the underlying premise that has kept Christianity and  Islam at war for almost 2000 years.  They cannot and will not assimilate  into any  society that does not embrace their theocratic views.  Europe has already suffered a recent  invasion of Muslims under the guise of  refugees that will destroy Europe as we and they knew it. To ignore the same  here will be at our peril.
This denial has been the downfall of every non-Muslim nation who has refused to or has been afraid to believe it - do not fall into the trap of thinking anyone who is aware is racist or paranoid - the informed always have the advantage.

 I want adults and children to understand this regarding MUSLIMS.


CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish.  And send it on to everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.


Can a good Muslim be a good American?


Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia .


Religiously - no.  Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.  (Quran,2:256)(Kora)


Scripturally - no.  Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran


Geographically - no.  Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.


Socially - no.  Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.


Politically - no.  Because he must submit to the mullahs, who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.


Domestically - no.  Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran 4:34)


Intellectually - no.  Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.


Philosophically - no.  Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.  Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.  Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.


Spiritually - no. Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.


Therefore, after much study and deliberation...Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country.  They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and 'good' Americans. Call it what you wish, it's still the truth.  You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.


The religious war is bigger than we know or understand!

CIEMR / American Coup
« on: April 26, 2019, 10:04:19 AM »
President Trump made a mention of this in a Fox News interview. He lightly used the words Coup and seems to be suggesting the roots of which extend all the way to President Obama (Man, I still saying those two words together!!!) I am hopeful that this all sees the full light of day, the traitors are arrested and brought to justice. It is what it is. You do the crime, you do the time. We should not let the Clintons and the Obama administration get away with what they probably tried to do.



Obama’s Campaign Paid $972,000 To Law Firm That Secretly Paid Fusion GPS In 2016
Since April of 2016, Obama's campaign organization has paid nearly a million dollars to the law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS to compile a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump.
OCTOBER 29, 2017 By Sean Davis

Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has directed nearly a million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Steele dossier. Since April of 2016, Obama For America (OFA) has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show.

The Washington Post reported last week that Perkins Coie, an international law firm, was directed by both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to retain Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to compile a dossier of allegations that Trump and his campaign actively colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election. Though many of the claims in the dossier have been directly refuted, none of the dossier’s allegations of collusion have been independently verified. Lawyers for Steele admitted in court filings last April that his work was not verified and was never meant to be made public.

OFA, Obama’s official campaign arm in 2016, paid nearly $800,000 to Perkins Coie in 2016 alone, according to FEC records. The first 2016 payments to Perkins Coie, classified only as “Legal Services,” were made April 25-26, 2016, and totaled $98,047. A second batch of payments, also classified as “Legal Services,” were disbursed to the law firm on September 29, 2016, and totaled exactly $700,000. Payments from OFA to Perkins Coie in 2017 totaled $174,725 through August 22, 2017.

FEC records as well as federal court records show that Marc Elias, the Perkins Coie lawyer whom the Washington Post reported was responsible for the payments to Fusion GPS on behalf of Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, also previously served as a counsel for OFA. In Shamblin v. Obama for America, a 2013 case in federal court in Florida, federal court records list Elias as simultaneously serving as lead attorney for both OFA and the DNC.

OFA, which managed Obama’s successful re-election campaign in 2012, retooled after that campaign to focus on enacting the president’s agenda during his final term in office. The group reorganized again after the 2016 election and planned to use its staff and resources to oppose President Donald Trump. During the entire 2016 campaign cycle, the group spent only $4.5 million, according to FEC records.

Federal records show that Hillary Clinton’s official campaign organization, Hillary For America, paid just under $5.1 million to Perkins Coie in 2016. The DNC paid nearly $5.4 million to the law firm in 2016.

The timing and nature of the payments to Perkins Coie by Obama’s official campaign arm raise significant questions about whether OFA was funding Fusion GPS, how much Obama and his team knew about the contents and provenance of the dossier long before its contents were made public, and whether the president or his government lieutenants knowingly used a partisan political document to justify official government actions targeting the president’s political opponents named in the dossier. According to the Washington Post, Fusion GPS was first retained by Perkins Coie on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in April of 2016.

At the same time that Hillary’s campaign, Obama’s campaign organization, and the DNC were simultaneously paying Perkins Coie, the spouse of one of Fusion GPS’s key employees was working directly for Obama in the West Wing. Shailagh Murray, a former Washington Post reporter-turned-political operative, was serving as a top communications adviser to Obama while the Obama administration was reportedly using information from the dossier to justify secret surveillance of Trump campaign staff. Murray is married to Neil King, a former Wall Street Journal reporter who was hired by Fusion GPS in December of 2016. While at the Wall Street Journal, King worked alongside Fusion GPS’s core team, even sharing bylines with Glenn Simpson, the Fusion GPS executive who personally hired Steele to probe Trump’s alleged Russia connections.

The importance of the dossier funded by Democrats, commissioned by Fusion GPS, and compiled by Steele, is difficult to overstate given that its contents were reportedly briefed to both President Obama and then-President-Elect Trump. The dossier was eventually published in full by BuzzFeed on January 10. On January 6, then-FBI Director James Comey had briefed Trump on the allegations in Steele’s dossier. Steele admitted in court filings that he had shopped much of the information in his dossier to numerous media outlets beginning in September of 2016.

Fusion GPS, which has been accused of illegally operating as an undisclosed agent of foreign governments, is currently facing multiple congressional inquiries into its activities and its clients. Bill Browder, whose attorney was allegedly murdered by Russian authorities after publicizing explosive allegations of Russian fraud and money laundering, alleged in congressional testimony last July that Fusion GPS was paid by Russians to undermine U.S. sanctions against the country. Late last week, Fusion GPS reportedly struck a deal with U.S. House investigators regarding a federal subpoena of the firm’s bank records. And in September, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who serves as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, reportedly requested that the U.S. Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit provide his committee with all suspicious activity reports related to Fusion GPS’s bank transactions.

Following reports of Perkins Coie’s role in funneling money to Fusion GPS, the Campaign Legal Center, a non-partisan campaign finance watchdog, filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the secret funding schemes violated federal campaign disclosure laws.

Fusion GPS is also facing a separate defamation suit in federal court related to claims in the dossier. That case, which was brought by three Russian businessmen who claim to have been libeled in the Steele dossier, was filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., in early October. Fusion GPS is yet to respond to those allegations in court.

Faith Discussion / Power of prayer, a praise report
« on: April 25, 2019, 12:19:40 PM »
I believe in prayer

I believe prayer can be hampered by sin, or made effective through repentance and a change away from sin.

I know this to be true in my life, and frankly, in the lives of so many others.

So in our hours Kat is just suffering from an oppressive work situation. She is very good at what she does, and I have seen a pattern over the years where her superiors, slowly but surely add more and more work. This past week they took the girl she trained as an assistant away, to work at another property. So now Kat has to do that person's job all day, and her job at night and on weekends. She is sometimes only getting four hours at home a night and has worked the past 14 days straight.

That's why she said, maybe we should just throw in the towel, sell our hours and move to the farm. A major simplification, it frees up enough money for me to subsidize her income with no outward effect on our financial picture.

Well, we started praying a few nights ago to show her an new job which is not so oppressive. The next morning I was having breakfast with a good friend. We talked about Kat's situation, then he left for an appointment. At that appointment, his friend there a company owner was saying that he was losing his operations manager and he needed someone. But he wanted a strong Christian woman because he knows the strong work ethic that goes along with women like that.

My friend mentioned my wife and gave a bit of background. The owner seemed interested and asked if he could see her resume. Her and I worked on that resume around 2300 last night. I emailed it to my friend who forwarded it to his friend, the company owner. Kat was called this morning asking her if she could come in for an interview tomorrow.

God's work? His hand? For whatever comes, yes, I think so. It could be her next job which starts 10K above her current salary and is for 30 hours a week, not 100! If not, then it may open her eyes to the fact that there are many jobs out there and she is very talented and professional...The proverbial wrecking of the beaver dam which releases the water to go where it may?

Whatever the outcome, Thank you Father God. You love me and us beyond my ability to understand. How can you continue to watch out for a sinner, for sinners? Your love is constant and unchanging, and I am ashamed I cannot be a better man for you!

Faith Discussion / Andrew Budek

So today, I got this friend request on facebook. I am not a fan of the liberal leaning place, so with usual fashion, I clicked on the fellow's name and followed the links to his page and read something of him.

It became immediately evident that he was a writer, a patriot, a warrior, and is dying from pancreatic cancer.

Then I noticed a personal message from him. Although we may have crossed paths in some area of conflict, he was not sure but he wanted to know if I was the author of Distant Thunder.

He wrote how the book had personally affected him and helped him in some ways retain his humanity and deal with the disease and his relationships. It humbled me to think that anything I may have written would have done anything so noble as to inspire a seriously ill man in a positive manner. I truly believe that everything good in me (us) is of God, and we really ain't all that much to brag about.

But that means something of an even greater magnitude, that God is using us!

So I want to lift up Andrew, but for what, I do not know. Could be healing, could be for a deeper understanding of the spirit, or ease in passing, or no pain, or...or I just don't know yet.

I do know that the spirit is prompting me to pursue, so I will. Meantime, men, hit your knees pretty please and lift up this man. A community of men, praying for a man.
