This is a blog of current events and issues that affect most of our lives. There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance. I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who are not even aware of the dangers.
The Esteemed Readers of this site may find this interesting. I have not confirmed the source yet so please take that under consideration. If it does pan out to be true, this is grounds for indictments and charges forthcoming. I doubt that President Trump block this.
“The pilot who flew the plane for the secret meeting between Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch and, recently disclosed, Paul Ryan is breaking his silence for a $2 million payday that is sure to put his life in danger.
Dimitri Noonan, a pilot who has worked for the Justice Department for 25 years, has codeword clearance but says none of the meeting was classified, since officially it didn’t happen. According to Noonan:
“The three of them sat like old friends and discussed strategies and made treaties. Clinton’s crimes were to be set aside until his wife finished 2 terms of working with Republicans to shore up the base and ‘move away from these Trump loving racists’ as Ryan put it.
Lynch would seal the deal by not investigating the Clintons further. Ryan gets to remain Speaker, the Democrats get the Senate and the White House and 2024 is up for grabs.”
Obviously there are many more details, many dark secrets and much more story to tell. The entire interview with Noonan will premier on Fox News on July 28th.”
Taking a stand is not something reserved to a select group of people. Our Founders who fought to secure the blessings of Liberty, the right of each independent and Free State may remain that way throughout their posterity, demonstrated to us that eternal vigilance is necessary to remain free and independent from those who would seek to rule over the People through subjugation and tyranny.
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. (private property) That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its power in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
It’s time to open our eyes
And see our Country’s in a mess
We gave the tyrants power
So we can’t expect any less
We have turned a blind eye
Every step along the way
Is it really any wonder why
We have the mess we see today?
We have Isis in our country
Antifa in our towns
Violence is an everyday thing
Terrorism no longer astounds
Politicians no longer work for us
Almost all are on the take
They don’t do anything substantial
Yet millions they still make
Our Veterans are hurting and homeless
And can’t get proper care
After putting their lives on the line for us
What they get is far from fair
Our justice system is broken
Convictions the only real goal
Truth and justice no longer matter
Because judges have sold their soul
Our prisons are overflowing
With men who should be free
And it’s only a matter of time
Until it happens to you or me
Our government wants us divided
It even encourages division and hate
It knows if it can distract us long enough
Any real change we can make will come too late
Our founding documents have been forgotten
We’ve traded freedom and liberty
For temporary safety and comforts
That only bring oppression and tyranny
It’s time to say enough’s enough
And take back all our power
There is no more time to waste
We’ve reached the final hour
We have to come together
As Americans, across this land
It’s time to take our country back
It’s time for us to STAND
When I run across posts in social media, I tend to read them and just move on. Occasionally I find one that is poignant and moving to the point that I will share it profusely with my social media ‘friends’ and family. This is one of those posts. All due respect and thanks to David and Rosemary LaBonte.
“From: “David LaBonte”
My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to “print” it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register:
So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed
through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.
Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get
down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.
They had waved good-bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.
Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan. They were defending the United States of America as one people.
When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German-American or the Irish-American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.
And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.
And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.
