Civilization Lost

Western Civilization was formed as man’s work and the resulting work produced created the need for an economical system which motivated the development and creation of systems of laws. As humans graduated from hunting and gathering thru farming and the resulting marketing, rules of behavior necessarily developed along with polite manners to protect the work product of the individual and his related possessions. Laws were created to protect those manners and specifically the work products of individual labor. (1)

When laws are created to change civilization, rather than the natural order of civilization creating laws, we have a direct assault on the motivation to acquire individual work product. If others can assume control over the fruits of your labor then the motivation to labor will be infringed. We will then have little motivation to work and create. Absent adherence to the natural law created by the natural advancement of civilization, there will necessarily be created in its place a disunity and a restless dissatisfaction. This will of course result in a decrease in the availability of goods and services.

Without the natural order of economic development as the foundation of civilization and the laws created to protect it, civilization as we know it will have no solid foundation upon which to exist.

Thus once man has been deprived of this natural formation of a system of laws, and men become above the law, Men will find the need to recreate a civilization through reason or revolution or a combination of the two.

Hence, once the Obama administration ends, there is an opportunity to recreate civilization, that is self rule as we know it. Should Clinton or Sanders become president, the opportunity will be lost or at best postponed, since their intention is to ignore law and seek to redistribute wealth to those who did not create it.

The question remains can our form of self government survive another round of Obama style leftist fascism? If the answer is no, then we will have an solemn obligation to reclaim our government. I pray it will be through reason and intellect and not revolution.

Reince, Repeat

Why do Republicans  continue to hold their debates with the marxist media in command? Why do they not make arrangements for debate hosting with the Heritage Foundation, MRC or Conservative Review?  Republicans seem to be more afraid of conservatives than they are of socialists and more comfortable losing elections than winning them.  

There is some serious brain power and talent  in the Republican presidential line up and yet it seems that the RNC cannot wait to squelch it not just in this election, but in nearly every one in memory.    

The bottom line may be that the RNC uses these farcical debates with liberal activist moderators to effectively drive the conservatives out of the race.

We must look to the consistent results of these so called debates and walk them backward to find the motivation for repeating the same losing behavior election after election.  They are repeating this seemingly insane game plan because in the end it consistently buys them what they truly want; They appear to want less than stellar candidates who do not inspire maximum voter turn out.  

Add to it this the questionable primary system in which most early primaries are held in blue states, topped off by the one in South Carolina which actually has the democrats voting in the Republican primary.    This allows the so called moderate candidates to rake in the dough heavily, right out of the gate, while forcing the conservatives to spend enormous sums of money and drive them out of the competition.   

The Republicans are often called the “stupid party”.   If they desire to lose election after election, they couldn’t do a smarter job.

Carly Fiorino and My Precious Time

So here we are a precious 14 months until the next presidential election.  It is great that there is nothing pressing going on while all these senators and governors run for president.  There are not thousands of Christians being murdered in the middle east.  There are not hundreds of black youth being murdered in the cities every day.   The Keystone pipeline is finished.  Obamacare has been discontinued and ISIS is no more. The border has been secured. Iran now will never have nuclear warheads and Clinton has been cleared of all suspicion.  

So, of course then it ’s a journalists priority to cover the election 24 – 7.  

Ehhhhhh, maybe not so much./s

It can be said after watching the first presidential debate for 2016 on Fox News Channel, that the candidates behave like contestants on American Idol, all trying to elbow their way to stardom.  The thing is, after a couple seasons we learned to start watching the show 3 weeks before the final vote.  In doing this we avoided wasting hours of precious time and brain cells watching the less talented and the undeserving.    

This plan translates directly to Fox’s election coverage.  If the talking heads at Fox are not taking every opportunity for public naval gazing, they are covering unlikely presidential nomination winners like Jim Gilmore.  Oh, and lets find out more about the old feud between Rosie O’Donnell and Trump.  Yeah thats the ticket. /s

Thank the Lord for Carly Fiorina.  She so intellectually outclasses most of the candidates from both major parties that she may have the effect of eliminating the lesser half at faster speed than would otherwise be.  Trump is no longer entertaining and not used to criticism so he should be folding soon.  Carly Fiorino is so quick and articulate, she makes Trump look like Triumph the Insult Comic rather than a candidate for high office.  Lets pray a few hopeless candidates will see the impossibility of their success in this and  leave the race sooner rather than later.  Are you listening Jeb Bush? Trump? Santorum?

In the meantime, Fox needs to break away from its make-up mirrors and do its job, like covering the news rather than trying to make the news or be part of the story like their liberal colleagues do.  

I’ll be passing on Fox for a while unless I hear it has suddenly remembered how to put its pants on front ways or management finally goes for dignity and professionalism rather than mud wrestling contests or indecent public exposure.   

Cruzin’ for a Bruzin’

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is running for President. Good. We need a conservative with the chutzpah of Obama but with genuine mental dexterity. The predatory media has already painted the target on Cruz’s post office mug shot and started the attack. Also Good. The more the media beat him up, the more the regular Joe will be drawn to hear him.

I’ve heard several news sources say he can’t win. Neither could Seabiscuit or the 1980 American Olympic Hockey Team So why should Cruz bother?

If I recall correctly, Bill Clinton couldn’t win either, since his opponent George H. W. Bush at one point during the first Gulf War, had a near 90 percent approval rating. Clinton got the nomination without much of a fight, since few even in his own party thought he had a prayer. Of course that hayseed Lincoln had no chance against Stephen Douglass either.

Ive seen a couple so called analysts get pretty hot under the collar about Cruz’s decision to run. If he’s so unlikely a victor, why are they so animated? Of course the odds are against Cruz simply from a mathematical point of view, but why the indignation? Some in the new media who claim the mantel of conservatism, also belittle his effort.

What are they afraid of?

What is it they know that they are not sharing?

They know that Americans are basically a conservative, law respecting and abiding people who are not to be taken for granted. They know that a conservative CAN win despite their indignation to the contrary. They know it and it scares the hell out of them that the peasantry can take a shot at retrieving power and succeed. Sure its tough, what with the cheating and the back stabbing and all that electioneering but it IS possible.

A Ted Cruz run will necessarily force other Republican candidates’ campaigns to lean right. The Cruz dynamism makes RINOs like Christie and JEB Bush look slow- witted, and angry by comparison mostly because they are.

Don’t get me wrong. I have not yet begun to trust Ted Cruz. however it is great thing that he is running. There is no reason on earth why anyone should be nominated because they deserve it , because its their turn or because the NY liberal media has already crowned them. There needs to be a good intelligent cleansing fight over the issues . The fight needs to be driven to the right so it can take place in a lane of the belief in honor, country and law and order for a change and Cruz is the man for that job.

Thanks, Ted

Our God is Awesome

Its not a matter of politics. Its one of faith. Our God, the God of Paul and David is NOT the one that Islam worships. For someone other than Jehovah Jireh to be worshipped in one of our churches is abhorrent to the worship of our God. Allowing other kinds of secular meetings in the basement of the church, but not prayer services to another entity; “Thou shall not have strange gods before me”. Its a free country, but our churches are still privately held.

Its good that the call to prayer did not come from the church, but that was only part of the problem.

Islamists enjoy carrying on about insults to Islam. Christians or Jews are clearly not entitled to be resistant to any kind of adverse abridgments to our faith and its precepts. There are all kinds of buildings in the Duke University campus, Muslim prayers need not take place in a christian church or synagogue.

Thank you Rev. Graham and I suspect that you are just getting warmed up.

Free Men or Slaves; The New Resistance

Considering that the House of Representatives’ vote for the speakership comes up Tuesday a reminder as to what is at stake can be made to us all. The House of Representatives can stop the wannabe diety and sovereign rule of Obama, if they care to. Things look pretty grim when so shortly after an outstanding conservative victory in the recent midterms, newly elected Mia Love is already talking about reelecting the current speaker.

It is up to us.

Call your Representatives and remind them today (202) 224-3121) of your expectations of them and of their vote.

Let us allow our first President, George Washington be our voice today as he was that day in 1776 to the continental army before the battle of Long Island:

The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die”

One must accept here that today’s liberalism is the antithesis of freedom; for if we today’s brave resistance, the new resistance, accept the oppression of one set of people for the benefit of others, then we do not have freedom at all.

Dare then to pray and ask God for his help and then ask your earthly representatives for theirs.

Weasels ‘Round the Mulberry Bush

So North Korea cyber attacked an American based company because of an anti Korean “hate” film . The President says he did not speak to Sony. If he had, HE says he would have demanded Sony publish the film, and not take orders from a dictator. Obama said if Hillary had a son, he’d look just like Kim Jung UN.

Muslims attacked America at a make-shift consulate allegedly because of a “hate” film against Islam. Four Americans were slaughtered in retribution. The President and Secretary of State Clinton promised retribution but sadly, Clinton was only referring to the makers of the internet film. Perhaps Obama will order Sony to make a film in which the American President will smuggle guns through Mexico to waiting members of Hezzbollah. They will then be flown via Air Force I to North Korea where they’ll parachute in as Obama yells, “get off my plane!”

American Christians will then be transferred to a recently vacated Gitmo, where they will premiere a newly released film, “The Interview”.

After viewing the film, the Christians will burn Gitmo down insisting Muslims have received privileged treatment. Christians will further demand that Koreans rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem in the newly established state of Palestine.

Sure I made half of this up. But for a bit you had to ask yourself, didn’t you?

Your Turn; An Open Letter to Jeb Bush

Governor Bush,

There is something more than troubling about you, Jeb Bush running for President on the heals of your brother, your father and lets not forget great grandfather (about 7 times I guess) Franklin Pierce on your mother’s side.  We fought a war so we could avoid the isolation of power in ad infinitum samples of the same gene pool.  Its just not healthy.    

No, its not like you are the spawn of Elvis, or an Osmond,or a Marx brother but you not exactly a member of New Kids on The Block, either. They can sing. They would at least
bring new blood to the office.

You’re not even a Wahlberg, or a Jonas brother for that matter. In other words, Jeb, you and George W should have arm wrestled for the opportunity back in the day and at least one would have walked away with dignity.  There is something unsettling, even desperate about your choice to run for President.  We know Mom liked you best, but since you are running now, will Marvin run in 2024?  Or why not for that matter let Dorothy Bush Koch run instead?  The left would love that one.  

She and Hillary could mud wrestle instead of debate.  Talk about must-see TV!  

Rumer already has it that when you speak, Hillary’s lips move.  

Your running is almost an insult to the rest of America.  After all, one of us should be able to grow up and be President, too.
