PRAGER: The Greatest Hysteria In American History.

The Greatest Hysteria In American History

You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.

For one thing, any hysteria that existed then was directed against the greatest evil in the world at the time: communism. Then-Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee notwithstanding, there really were Americans in important positions who supported communist regimes enslaving their populations and committing mass murder. McCarthy was on to something.

For another, the mainstream media did not support McCarthy. Most in the media were highly critical of McCarthy. Today, the mainstream media are not the voices of caution. They are the creators of the hysteria. There have been conspiracy theories throughout American history (e.g. Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t kill President John F. Kennedy alone; the moon landing never happened). But this is the first time the media have created and promoted a conspiracy. Not surprisingly, they have dropped any pretense of objective reporting in the process.

And while some Americans were unfairly labeled communists during the McCarthy era, countless Democratic politicians and leaders in news and entertainment have called members of the Trump administration and the tens of millions of Americans who support the president fascists, white supremacists, haters, xenophobes and even Nazis.

MSNBC contributor Jill Wine-Banks said of the Trump-Putin Helsinki press conference: “It’s just as serious to me as the Cuban Missile Crisis in terms of an attack, or the 9/11 attack. … (Trump’s) performance today will live in infamy as much as the Pearl Harbor attack or Kristallnacht.”

Former communist, Obama operative and CIA Director John Brennan tweeted: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”

The constant invoking of the Holocaust, the Nazis and now Kristallnacht (the unofficial beginning of the Holocaust, a night in 1938 when German Jews were beaten to death, synagogues were burned and Jewish shops were destroyed) only minimize the evils of Nazism and the Holocaust. A young American who, having gone to a typical university, probably knows nothing about the Nazis and the Holocaust will now think Nazism and the Holocaust were 20th-century expressions of Trump and American conservatism.

All this hysteria is built on next to nothing. At its core, it is an attempt to undo the 2016 election. The mainstream media refuse to accept that Hillary Clinton lost. They said she would win — handily. They predicted a landslide. How could they have possibly gotten it so wrong? Their answer is they didn’t; Trump and Putin stole it.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would know Trump has been harder on Russia than former President Barack Obama was. Every American would be reminded that Obama reassured Putin’s right-hand man, then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, that he wouldn’t be too tough on Russia. Thinking his mic was off, he whispered into Medvedev’s ear: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama sent Army meals to Ukraine and Trump has sent anti-tank missiles and other arms to repel the Russians.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama watched Syria burn and Russia come to dominate that country, while Trump has bombed Syrian military installations, including one where Russians were killed.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that it is Trump who has weakened Russia’s ally Iran, while Obama immeasurably strengthened it.

Instead, the media scream “treason,” “impeachment” and the like 24/7; Hollywood stars curse the president; others curse his daughter or the first lady (one of the most regal in American history) and show President Trump in various death poses. Meanwhile, leftist mobs shout at administration officials and Republican members of Congress while they eat in restaurants, shop in stores and sleep in their homes.

If you vote Democrat this November, you are voting for hysteria, lies, socialism and even the cheapening of the Holocaust.

But more than anything, a vote for Democrats in November is a vote for hysteria — the greatest and darkest in American history.

Please, Just Shut the Fuck Up Already!

If it weren’t for the fact that 17 beautiful children are dead, the response from the Left and the damaged survivors in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Parkland, FL would be laughable.

Everybody and I mean EVERYBODY has an opinion on the subject of guns, gun parts, and, of course, those Evil gun owners. You know, the 85 Million+ gun owners who murdered No One. There are so many lies and “misleading” facts, I truly don’t know where to begin. So, let us begin with the article penned by Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) on February 22, 2018, in the New York Times. https://nypost.com/2018/02/22/automatic-weapons-dont-belong-in-the-hands-of-everyone/

All of his arguments are based upon ignorance, lies, misrepresentations, and, personal biases masquerading as fact. Many of his opinions run contrary to U.S. history and court rulings to include the U.S. Supreme Court. Anyone with a basic knowledge of firearms and the use thereof knows more than this man. So, allow me to get started countering his rantings of a pissed off old man.

But, before I take this man’s arguments and discredit them one-by-one, let’s debunk the use of the term, “Assault Weapon.” The term “assault weapon” originated in Germany. The term assault rifle is generally attributed to Adolf Hitler, who for propaganda purposes used the German word “Sturmgewehr” (which translates to “storm rifle” or “assault rifle”), as the new name for the MP43, subsequently known as the Sturmgewehr 44 or StG 44. The “assault rifle,” was/is a select fire. This means that the gun can be fired in both semi-automatically (one bullet fired with One pull of the trigger) or in a “full-automatic” modes (One pull of the trigger results in multiple bullets being fired). In 1986, the Federal Government made it illegal to sell or possess fully-automatic firearms for the general public. Although still lawful to own, one must apply for the privilege by applying to the federal government in a long application process to include an extensive background check along with a $400 fee. Then one still has to find a seller willing to part with a pre-1986 firearm and it will cost you with prices starting around $10,000.

Semi-automatic firearms have been around since the invention of the first semi-automatic gun in 1885. The first semi-automatic rifle was introduced in 1885, the first semi-automatic pistol in 1892, and the first semi-automatic shotgun in 1902.

Back to Col. Peters. His article is not what I would expect coming from an educated military man. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought this was written by an anti-gun zealot from “Mom’s Demand…blah, blah, blah…” The first point he makes is just wrong.

These are military weapons (the AR-15, and semi-automatic rifles in general). Their purpose is to kill human beings. They’re not used for hunting (unless you want to destroy the animal’s meat). They’re lousy for target shooting. But they’re excellent tools for mass murder.”

In response to the first sentence, No. No the AR-15 and other military-style firearms are NOT military weapons. The only attribute the Civilian AR-15, AK-74/47 and others rifles share with the actual military versions is the cosmetics. These civilian firearms ONLY look like the military versions. The actual mechanical functions that allow for Full-Automatic fire are only available in Actual military issued weapons. Next, purposed for killing human beings. EVERY firearm ever designed has the potential to be used to kill a human being. as a point of fact, the very first firearms were designed to do just that.

The arguments that…”They’re not used for hunting,” and “they’re lousy for target shooting,” are, on the face, farcical. The AR-15 has been designed and re-designed in Many different calibers for many specific uses to include intermediate and large game hunting. As for “target shooting,” apparently to the teetering Peters, has never heard of 3-Gun competition and other National sporting competitions, some at the FEDERAL level sponsored by the government to include the annual Camp Perry Championship.

Peters goes on…”The latest school shooter could not have done what he did with a sports rifle or shotgun.” First of all, the AR rifle system as well as variants of the AK-47, are legally termed “Modern Sporting Rifles.” There are hundreds of designs of sporting rifles that are semi-automatic in function. As for shotguns, The first successful semi-automatic shotgun was marketed in 1902. And, armed with a modern shotgun, the school shooter here in Florida, could have killed just as effectively as with the AR-15, especially since FOUR police officers/Deputies were too cowardly or Stupid to do their jobs, enter the school and KILL the shooter.

Peters ignorance or outright left bias on the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution is astounding.

That “well regulated militia” part always gets left out. It’s called the “National Guard” and “the Reserves.” Did any of the recent shooters belong to a “well regulated militia”? As a matter of fact, I have not been able to identify a senior NRA executive who’s served in our military or in law enforcement — that’s patriotism for ya.”

First of all, Dick…er, Col. Peters, the term “militia” does NOT refer to the National Guard. Traditional State Militias were not adopted into the U.S. Army as the “National Guard” until World War I in 1917. The U.S. Constitution which the Bill of Rights is enshrined was ratified in 1788, that’s a full 129 years. And, militias have been around since 1636 when Massachusetts codified the existence of the militia, the forerunner of the National Guard. The militia was made up of ALL men aged 16 to 60. They were tasked with maintaining military arms and ammunition in defense of the colony. To attack the NRA leadership over military or law enforcement participation is a Strawman argument and a learned man such as Peters should know better.

As for putting weapons in schools, that’s a punk idea. More innocents would die.”

Col. Peters is engaging in the fallacy of “false cause” in this statement. Exactly what empirical evidence is there for this argument? None. Zero. As for it being a “punk” idea, I haven’t heard one single punk on the street nor punk musician for that matter suggest this.

He continues…”When the shooting starts, even the best-trained, most disciplined soldiers and cops — US Army Rangers or NYPD SWAT members — don’t put every round on target. The notion that a guard or teacher who goes to the range once a quarter would keep kids safe is profoundly divorced from reality.”

Really, Dick? I challenge you to go to ANY shooting competition where law enforcement and civilians compete together. Although there are exceptions, civilians out shoot law enforcement by a large margin. Here is but glaring bit of actual data gleaned from Chicago. Here is the data based on your “best-trained…cops.” Whom, by the way, are only required to qualify with their weapons One or Two times per YEAR!

Among the findings involving the deaths of 92 individuals:

•At least 2,623 bullets were fired by police in 435 shootings. In 235 of those incidents, officers struck at least one person; in another 200 shootings, officers missed entirely.

•The officers who fired weren’t rookies but, on average, had almost a decade of experience.

•Of the 520 officers who fired their weapons, more than 60 of them did so in more than one incident.

•The number of shootings by police — hits and misses — declined over the six years, from more than 100 in 2011 to 44 in 2015.

That’s more than 28 bullets per individual shot by the highly trained and skilled “cops.”

So, why my vulgar title for this essay? It expresses my frustration with individuals, organizations, even those with military experience/education, making statements, arguments and interviews to the press, who have no to limited knowledge on the subject of which they speak. I’m sick and tired of people using emotion and misinformation, deliberate and otherwise, to further an agenda based on political or personal feelings and not hard data and facts, not to mention Our Constitutional Rights!

Keep Political Correctness Out of Medicine

I just read an article by PAMELA WIBLE, MD. another post-hippie era nutjob. The name of the article is,

“Stop saying these 7 shaming words in medicine. Right now.”

The premise of the article is that the words we use as practitioners when speaking to our patients are an important consideration. And if she had ended there, I’d have no issues. But, this wasn’t to be. She states that we shouldn’t talk down to, chastise, denigrate…etc. those under our care and, generally speaking, I agree. However, she takes these considerations way too far to the Left. I’m so surprised (Insert sarcasm here).

So, in my essay, I will take on her assertions and offer my personal and professional opinion on this subject point by point.

  1. Don’t say COMMITTED suicide. Committed implies a crime. Committed rape, burglary, murder. Suicide is not a crime; it’s a medical condition that has been taboo for too long. Let’s come out of the dark ages and use proper language to discuss the cause of death. It’s died OF pneumonia, heart attack, stroke, suicide. Say died OF suicide (or died BY suicide).

Obviously, she is not a lawyer/prosecutor. The reason why she says “committed implies a crime,” is because It Is A Crime! Suicide or Attempted suicide IS illegal, i.e. a crime, in virtually every state in America. It’s a crime against the person. Attempting to equate suicide with some terminal or acute medical condition or injury is just plain silly. Afraid to offend the sensibilities of family and friends of the deceased by using the term Committed Suicide is to nullify the seriousness of the subject matter. Especially, where there may be a vulnerable person present or involved. Yes, we should be compassionate, but we, as practitioners should NEVER sugar-coat suicide in order to soft-peddle the lack of support prior to the act, or the personal responsibility of the person who ended their own life. Virtually every person interviewed who attempted suicide had clearly stated they the moment they attempted to take their life, there was “instant” regret.

2. “Don’t say she IS bipolar. People are people first. Some get physical and/or mental health conditions. The health condition is not their identity. She HAS pneumonia, heart disease, depression, not she IS pneumonia, heart disease, depression. Say she HAS bipolar disorder (or she is a person WITH bipolar disorder).”

This again is just silly. There is NO difference between her definitions…None! I’m diabetic…oh, wait. That’s just wrong! I have an endocrine system disorder. a pancreatic disorder, an Islet cell disorder, a carbohydrate/sugar intake disorder…etc. Where does the silliness end? I’ve never met a patient who has said: “I am a person with bipolar disorder.” It’s unrealistic for practitioners to converse using textbook language when speaking to patients. Honestly, you have to “dumb-down” explanations and terminology in order for the patient to understand their situation and choices. There’s not enough time in the day for practitioners and patients to engage in drawn-out conversations involving textbook definitions/terminology and still provide quality care.

3. “Don’t say he IS an addict. As in #2, people are people first. He is not a disease. He is not a behavior. Thus, he is not a substance abuser or an addict. He is a person who may have an addiction or a substance abuse disorder. Say he HAS an addiction.”

Please allow me to rephrase the above statement using different words…

“Don’t say he is a criminal. As in #2, people are people first. He is not a murderer. He is not a behavior. Thus, he is not a criminal or murderer. He is a person who may have criminal tendencies or psychological disorder. Say he has a “behavioral or psychological disorder with tendencies to harm others.” -Stupid, right?

Do you notice how she removes all stigma of an act(s) involving personal responsibility or culpability?

4. “Don’t say patient IS NON-COMPLIANT. Non-compliant blames the patient for not following a plan that she may have not understood or agreed to follow. Maybe she simply did not have money to buy the medication or the recommended treatment. Be precise and accurate with words, especially when placed in a permanent medical record. Don’t blame or shame. Be curious and engaging. Ask, “IS THE TREATMENT WORKING?” 

“Non-compliant blames the patient for not following a plan…” Really? Who else is there to blame? It’s either the patient or the outside “caretaker” in the home environment. If the patient does not have the funds for specific medications, I’ve seen the physician, case manager, social worker, etc. assist many people. Many times, it’s the patient themselves who refuse to take responsibility for their own care. People with moderate to severe OSA (sleep apnea) not utilizing their CPAP machines for weeks, months or Years at a time. Or, cancer patients who refuse to quit smoking. I’ve seen patients on oxygen sitting in wheelchairs lighting up, the dedicated ones will place the cigarette right in their stoma. Sometimes shaming Works! Sometimes, “bullying” does wonders. Some people need an Honest “Coming to Jesus moment” to make an impression. Bottom line, if a patient makes a conscious choice to Not to follow a physician’s treatment plan or instructions that are the very definition of Non-compliance.  “IS THE TREATMENT WORKING?!” Really, how exactly does one judge that if the patient is Non-Compliant!

5. “Don’t say PROVIDER. A provider is a person who provides something. How nebulous. In medicine, a provider is an economic term used to lump all the revenue-generators together into one pile (often to see how much more money can be squeezed out of them). It’s a dehumanizing word that lacks precision and, honestly, it’s offensive to the people who have spent so many years of their lives to achieve mastery in their chosen profession. Use proper terminology. Say NURSE PRACTITIONER, MIDWIFE, PHYSICIAN. If you must use a collective term, say HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. Sometimes, I say HEALERS.”

This one is just idiotic. In my years as a practitioner, I’ve NEVER heard ANY physician, practititioner…etc, refer to themselves as a “provider” to a patient. You’re the ONLY one, Dr., that I’ve ever heard of using the term “healer” (Except for those charlatan psychic healers). Physicians don’t heal anything or anyone. The body, under the right conditions, heals itself. You may offer treatments, surgeries and maintenance drugs but many times you engage in the prolonging of the suffering of patients trying to die as nature demands. Cuddos to you.

6. “Don’t say MIDLEVEL. What is that? Maybe it’s when an elevator gets stuck between two floors? Again (see #5) this is a word used by healthcare administrators to describe revenue generators who are somewhere halfway between a nurse and a doctor (I think). Use proper terminology. Say PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT or NURSE PRACTITIONER.

That may be a corporate term and, I’ve never heard a healthcare administrator use this term, ever. Just more nonsensical crap to increase her word count.

7. “Don’t say BURNOUT. Physician burnout is a term of oppression that blames the doctor for not keeping up with an inhumane schedule (30-hour shifts, 120-hour work weeks) in a toxic workplace that may include hazing, bullying, and no time to eat or take bathroom breaks. Even on their so-called time off, doctors may still be working on chart notes at home in bed on the weekends. Burnout blames the victim and deflects attention from the perpetrator. Speak the truth. Say HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION or HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE. Don’t say burnout, say ABUSE.

I’ve seen some healthcare workers with/suffering “burnout.” And, I’ve never heard anyone say anything negative about these individuals other than criticising them for NOT seeking help or getting out long before they became a “problem.” As a matter of fact, it’s been my experience for the PEERS, so-called colleagues or “friends” to be the last ones to offer help or compassion for these people.

The only person who should be ashamed is you. To use terms like…”Human Rights Violations or Human Rights Abuse,” belittles the peoples of the World who have suffered ACTUAL Abuses of their Human Rights.

“Dr.” Wible, I think you belong in a commune somewhere in the Northwest where they grow hemp. I’m sure that they would eat up your mindless dribble…I mean since they’re almost always “high.”

The Left Continues to Refuse Mental Health Treatment

Reprinted from a poor delusional Leftist calling himself an American Constitutionalist.

“Remember, Russia hacked both the DNC and the RNC but only released the DNC emails. Keep in mind that at this very moment Donald J. Trump is preparing to meet with the ex-KGB, Current President of Russia, Vladimir Putin. If Trump once again spends more than 5 minutes with Putin without another US representative present, every patriotic member of the US Congress must demand impeachment proceedings immediately. Trump says it never occurred to him to challenge Putin on election hacking and the indictment of twelve Russian spies during the Helsinki talks. Would this be to cover up any information that anyone of them may give to the Special Counsel, which will, in turn, indict Donald Trump eloquently as a Treasonous spy for Russia? I am repeating. If you support Trump, you are not a patriot. You are supporting a traitor, a liar, a fake, a fraud, a coward, and a phony president. No justification for it any way you try to excuse it or make it seem like he was the right choice. He needs to go. You offended the Founding Fathers by not looking at true Independent Patriots running for President like Evan McMullin.

The European Union is not our “foe.” Nazis are not “wonderful people.” African countries are not “shitholes.” Vladimir Putin is not a “fine person.” Kim Jong Un is not a “smart cookie.” Dear world, please forgive America for Donald Trump. Donald Trump, a little over one year had racked up over a total of 2,000 lies, and today can easily boast that number is rising to over 2500 lies. This is genuinely incomprehensible and irrational. A person, who is leading the free world into the future needs to be the antithesis of everything that Donald Trump is, from his racism, to bigotry and hatred, to bullying, to not comprehending the significance of the United States Constitution to being in the middle of the most bizarre and betrayal to all of the fallen Veterans, the builders of the skyscrapers, the farmers, the believers, the dreamers, and future of not only America, but the World.

To every immigrant looking to the West for Freedom, for the opportunity, for the dream to be a part of the grandest experiment of all humankind, America sadly sees unhappiness; families tore apart, the hopeful turned away, and all from the hatred and bigotry of one President Donald Trump. President Trump states that the religion of Islam prevails its ugly head with terrorism, but only from specific countries, which include none that President Trump has any financial ties with. President Trump states that White supremacist are very fine people as they walk down city streets with torches and threaten anyone not precisely white, male and heterosexual, and full of hatred and elects to judge people by religion, sexual preference, their ancestry, or their financial influence. President  Trump wants to build a wall to keep out the “Drug Dealers” of Mexico, but most who immigrate from the South are not from Mexico, are not Drug Dealers or rapists, but families are just trying to save their families from slaughter, famine, or other harmful living. America watched as babies were ripped from the arms of their parents, illegally kidnapped by ICE, and flown hundreds and thousands of miles away from their families. Scared, desperate, and not understanding, Trump tried to coerce the babies into court and force them to represent themselves, or demanded that for their parents to get their children back, they would need to sign an affidavit to leave America and never return. This is not America that The Revolution was fought for, and it is not the America that has sheltered millions from the deplorable actions of tyrants throughout the ages. This is a bigoted, hateful, out of control mad-man with a superiority complex and believes he was sent from God to save the World. Sadly some in America think that he is some Savior. Pity the fool who does not heed the word of God, or country, for he is a fool upon the mountain of Jacob and upon the tablets of Moses.

America has watched and stood in shame as President Donald Trump has insulted the Catholic Pope, to the Queen of England, to previous Presidents, and to the leaders of many allied countries from France to Germany to Canada. President Trump has disparaged each of the many statesmen and leaders of goodness and light around the world. According to Merriam Webster, the meaning of Disparage is:

America has seen after the discussions where tariffs were being placed upon goods from other countries; Trump went to calling the Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau a wimp and incapable. Americans witnessed the insulting of the Highest Catholic Priest, The Pope before the elections in 2016. As current as two days ago, Trump insulted the Queen of England by making her wait fifteen minutes, and then to walk in front of her without thought or care of her, or her age. Americans hear of the great negotiator Trump is but saw the finality behind his meeting with North Korea, and now one hears that Putin is a great leader and that Trump will be having a private meeting with Putin. This is treasonous in its apparent hiding of what is supposed to be a transparent government and President. Americans have the duly Constitutional right to hear the words spoken between an enemy, and a man who was in the center of several uncanny coincidences that leads too many of his closest allies from his candidacy, to the Oval Office being locked-up, charged with felonies, and charges of laundering money, illegal agreements with Russia, etc. America can no longer respect the words of President Trump, his intentions, how he came to be the President, to the government being filled with criminals, family members, and power hungry followers of the Trumponian ignorance.

One would have to dig deep to be able to find reason, intellect, or integrity to state that while the campaign manager was dealing directly with Russia, Trump was unaware, as Trump’s son is meeting with Russians to try to destroy the competitor in the race, The President knew nothing, That as Flynn was screaming lock her up he was in the middle of dealings with Russia and he knew nothing, and while his son-in-law was busy securing Russian financing, he Knew nothing. Either there was complete knowledge of these specific treasonous actions by President Trump, or he is the world’s most obtuse and blind human. Having lawyer friends threaten people to be destroyed, and not being aware, or having your present lawyer giving tons of money to a prostitute to keep her mouth shut, and then the campaign paying him back and he not knowing are far-fetched at best. Hiring an unknown unaware doctor to lie about the physical condition of President Trump is just a sign of something to hide, along with not supplying America with actual tax returns so Americans can decide if he is what he states, or if he is a swindler, a mobster, and a Russian crony.

There is no question with integrity drove Americans that there is much darkness surrounding each word, and each action done by President Donald Trump and his floundering political lackeys that spend hours defending and lying for him daily. America deserves the right to know why, why the political leaders would exclude from their vocabulary their local citizenry, America’s best interests, and Patriotism and replaced it with lies, half-truths, ignorance, and power hungry ideas. America deserves finality to the Mueller investigation without insult or influence. There are several avenues that treason, criminal practice, and political woes have created, and Mueller needs to be able to clean the halls of Congress of the criminals, and anyone who has committed Treason, from a staff member to the President, if they have fallen into the dark ooze of the swamp, then they must be cleansed through sunlight. No wrong can ever be righted by a word or half-truth, or a maybe. Anyone who believes in President Trump and his desires is virtuous are genuinely affected with a mental disease, which at this point there is no cure.

Americans around the nation and the world need to question loudly, What does President Trump have to hide from the world? Why so much cloak and dagger from such a hateful, spiteful, arrogant imbecile? America needs to become the fabric of the society once again, be the leader in influence, compassion, and freedom. Once again America must be proud to be Patriotic and shed the hate of a nationalistic President.”

Why Some People Don’t Like Me

“The lion doesn’t turn around when the small dog barks.” – African Proverb.

Have you been often accused of being intimidating? People might judge you for what you are without knowing about you or your life. Your personality today is a result of the experiences you have gone through in the past. Because of that your attitude towards life has become strong and tough. Others may not like the way you are but that should not bother you. You should not be sorry for who you are.

Marked by tension, your life has seen many ups and downs in your career and relationships. This has transformed you into an independent and stronger person. Therefore you do not easily come off as soft to people anymore.

Sometimes you are misunderstood as rude and mean for the way you behave and react around others. What most people fail to see is your soft side behind this garb of the tough one. People who come across as intimidating are actually kind in nature and have a big heart.

Some common traits that are visible in intimidating personalities are the following:

1. Small talk is annoying – You do not appreciate small talks and neither do you indulge in them quite often. Deep and serious conversations which involve the participation of the intellect is something that interests you. Petty conversations concerning the weather or the glamour world do not catch your attention. You are in fact infuriated if someone interrupts you with their small talks.

2. Willful ignorance is not tolerated – You not only have a strong personality but are wise and learned at the same time. You are open-minded and do not entertain someone who is judgmental. Baseless judgment comes from being ignorant. One way to mitigate ignorance is to educate yourself. But if someone is too reluctant to do so for themselves, then you would either walk away or lose your patience with them.

3. You see more opportunities than others – Because you are open minded, you may see many more opportunities in situations than others. This attitude not only helps you survive but it also pushes you through tough situations. At the same time, you may encounter animosity and jealousy from others because you have the ability to achieve success through hardships.

4. Your focus is on solutions and not problems – Strong-willed people are focused and they know how to get their things done. They do not tolerate any excuses from others who try to hinder their work. They dislike people who are weak and complaining and fail to manage things on their own.

5. You are a person of your word – Honesty is something that you value the most. You are straightforward who speaks their mind and is not afraid to come off as someone who is rude. You are not two-faced and tell people exactly what you think. You always stick by your word and never lie to a friend. Because of your personality traits, you are choosy about your friends. You cannot be friends with anybody and everybody. You detest liars and dishonest people.

If it sounds like you or someone you know, then you must understand by now that people with strong personalities may come off as intimidating but that they are not cruel at heart. They do not try to dominate you in any way. They just cannot restrain their anger and frustration when they come across people who wear masks.

The 2nd Civil War is Already Underway

The Left (Democrats, Liberals, Communists, Socialists…etc.) declared war on America many years ago. Americans for the most part, were a forgiving people who gave those on the Left the benefit of the doubt. We elected the likes of Carter, Clinton and then Obama.

Obama was the straw that broke America’s back. The Obama administration is proving (daily) just how corrupt and criminal a government can be to even the strongest of democratic republics. The outright lies and misrepresentations, with not only tacit approval, but the complicity of the Mainstream Media in these criminal enterprises should shock every American. Unfortunately, the political climate coupled with this media love affair with the left has damaged our country so badly that it may take a second civil war to realign our country with our Constitution.

Last year, I lost a friend of forty-two years because of this climate. She has betrayed her upbringing, common sense and, decency because she bought into the lies of the left. There were some family issues like LGBTQ that hit home and caused a riff in their home. My friend bought into this liberal bullshit that anything goes and is okay. But, I  digress.

It got the point where she was posting/sharing straight-up LIES and Misrepresentations from the leftist media as “truth.” I started countering with actual facts. I countered her senseless memes with actual facts that anyone can verify with the most basic research skills. Alas, didn’t help. In my attempts to counter her programming, I only alienated her.

I am firm in my belief that she and the millions of others in our country are, in fact, mentally ill. You only have to look at the throngs of, for lack of a better term, Crazed people who are too stupid and lazy to examine the facts for themselves. We’ve become such a “drive-through, I want it now” nation. You want proof? It’s all around us. For example;

http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/new-reuters-poll-proves-many-americans-cant-think-themselves

Many Americans, such as my former friend fall into this category. Recently, I unfriended one of my FB “friends” who is just over the top with soaking up every bit of these untrue so-called “facts” from the mainstream media. You cannot break the programming of these lemmings. After a few days of this nut-job complaining to her community of like-minded lemmings about my evilness, my ex-best friend chimed in with this;

Carla D****-**** I unfriended him a long time ago as well. His posts are so hate-filled and angry. I didn’t need that on my FB feed on a daily basis.”

This coming from the woman who believes that Our duly elected President is the offspring of the Anti-Christ and Hitler. She spends a few hours of her day spewing nothing but hate and contempt for our President, his administration, and his supporters. All she does is regurgitate CNN, MSNBC, et. al. lies and propaganda. So, countering with verifiable FACTS that discount her daily programming are evidence of my…” posts are so hate-filled and angry.”

Don’t get me wrong. We can have a disagreement on specific policies/issues. I love to engage in debate and critical discourse. However, I truly believe we as a nation are, in fact, past the tipping point. American conservatives, who used to be ridiculed at school and occasionally at work, are now being physically threatened, tossed from restaurants, refused service…etc. The Left has turned identity politics into a weapon of mass destruction. They label those like me with labels such as Murderer (Pro-gun), NAZI, White Supremacist,…etc. These terms are meant to de-humanize us. Once you “de-humanize a people, then those now non-humans can be discriminated against, attacked and ultimately, Murdered. Just ask the Gypsies, the Jews, et. al. Every day, we are threatened with violence, our children are threatened. Leftist Hollywood makes statements like the First Lady’s son should be forcibly taken from her and locked in a cage with pedophiles.

Who are the violent ones?! Watch  CNN or MSNBC for just one day. Then, give me ONE, Just One example of this kind of rhetoric coming from the mainstream Right. Who are the ones shutting down Free Speech, rioting, breaking windows and, setting fires on college campuses?? Hint: It’s NOT the “Right.” Who is rioting in major cities again, setting fires and destroying property?? Not the “Right.” If the Left wants to see REAL Nazi’s they only have to look in the mirror. The only thing these mainstream media idiots are missing is the wearing of brown shirts.

At this point, I’m ready. I’m ready for a “civil war.” I truly believe we NEED a Civil War. The only way we are going to return to Our Constitutional roots and end the downward spiral towards socialism is for the American people to rise up. We need to let loose the Patriots of this Great Nation to restore what has been stolen from us. If President Trump and the Office of the President continues to be assaulted by the Left and their minions in the media resulting in the Impeachment of Our President, then it’s time to let the bullets fly. Time to cut the head off of the snake of liberalism by using force to remove Leftists “leaders,” with Extreme Prejudice.

America Is Over, But I Won’t See It Go Without An Epic Fight

Barring some unforeseen awakening, America is heading for an eventual socialist abyss. But I’m not letting it go down without a fight.
Jesse Kelly

By 

Close your eyes and imagine holding someone’s scalp in your hands. I don’t mean cradling his skull as you thousand-yard-stare at his lifeless face. I mean a real scalp, Indian-style, of some enemy you just killed on the battlefield; somebody you hated and who hated you back.

You killed him, won the day, carved off the top of his skull, and now you’re standing over him victorious on the now-quiet field of battle, with a quiet breeze blowing through your hair. Your adrenaline is still pumping with that primal feeling of victory and the elation of having survived when others didn’t.

But maybe, for just a moment, would you consider it? No, not a real scalping, but a metaphorical one. We’ll come back to this in a minute.

Look, Guys, America Is Simply Going Down

First, we all have to accept certain realities about where we are as a nation. Rains will come and go. The stock market will rise and fall. The sky is blue. Water is wet. And the government in America will just never stop getting bigger. This is simply a fact of life.

We haven’t seen our government shrink since Calvin Coolidge, and there is little appetite among the American public for shrinking the government. We are now at the point in this country where we call them “cuts” if the government doesn’t increase spending quite as much as they had planned.

So, barring some unforeseen awakening, America is heading for an eventual socialist abyss. It is really only a matter of dates. Will we all die in the inevitable communist purges within ten years? Of course not. Will it happen within the next century or two? Almost certainly.

In a way, it is actually a good thing. God gives each of us a period in history to live through. Why not have one that is memorable? I am thrilled to live in these times. Any man can coast through 80 years of a society at its pinnacle. His life will start and end, and it will be as if he never existed. Wouldn’t you rather live through an era people write stories about? I want to have a smirk on my face as I walk through the pearly gates of heaven, shaking my head, and saying to myself, “What a life.”

We Can Go Quietly, Or Fight to the Death

Do you remember the American Indians? Most likely you at least give them a passing thought whenever you pull a stick of Land O’ Lakes butter out of the fridge or hear some liberal pretend to be outraged over the Washington Redskins. Either way, they were the randomly settled group of nomadic tribes who resided in America before a bunch of Europeans arrived, took all their lands, and conquered them.

The Indians were faced with something that faces all civilizations. It’s something we face now. They were facing the unstoppable force of inevitability. Many of them knew it. The settlers from Europe were about to take over every inch of this country. Some tribes, like the Choctaw, chose to play nice with the government in hopes that their peaceful gesture would be returned. They got a Trail of Tears for their kindness.

But some tribes, like the Lakota, chose a different path. They chose war. Leaders of the Lakota like Sitting Bull knew full well how this war would end. Nevertheless, he gathered thousands of young warriors in the Black Hills and made his enemy feel some pain before he surrendered. He scored a decisive win at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and collected some scalps. Yes, the U.S. government prevailed in the end, but General Custer and his 200 men weren’t there to see it.

That brings us to the continuous internal battle we see on the Right. We have this ever-present acrimony between the factions because some of us will not accept where we are and the enemies we face.

Some on the Right believe that tyranny in this society, as in all societies, is inevitable. The people who will micromanage every aspect of your life are not God-fearing conservatives. They are leftists, and they are vicious.

They are not political opponents in the sense that you have a debate with them. These modern-day leftists want you to lose your job. They want to destroy you. How do you think they’re going to treat you when they finally sit in the seat of power for good? So fight them tooth and nail. Make them long for the day when you’re no longer fighting them. Be the Lakota.

At the End, Which Will You Have Wanted to Be?

Some on the Right will flatly reject this. They think we simply have a few minor policy quibbles with the Left. They think we would be able to settle these minor differences if it weren’t for the brutish Neanderthals who think it’s some kind of fight.

This group really peaked in 2016 after Donald Trump won the GOP primary. They began scolding the dullards who were too stupid to just believe everything printed in The New York Times. They lecture us to this day. They live for compromise with the Left, always ignorant of the fact that just a little more big government is still big government. They are the Choctaws. “Just trust the U.S. government. I’m sure they’ll treat us well in the end if we’re nice.”

So, back to scalping thing. When you make that long trek to the reservation the leftists have set up for you—and make that trek you will—what memories do you want to take with you? When living in the liberal utopian nightmare of 57 genders and government control over everything in your life, you will want to have been a Lakota. You’ll want to know, to remember, even just cherish the knowledge that, one day, you rode out onto the plains and made them feel pain.
