Pure Evil

A man went into an arena where there was a concert going on, there were thousands of young girls many not even in their teens. The man was wearing a device which was loaded with explosives and pieces of metal that would become shrapnel. As the concert was ending and people were beginning to leave the auditorium the man, a suicide bomber, and a radicalized Islamist terrorist set off his vest. He killed over 20 people, one was only 8 years old, he also wounded about 59 others. He believed he was a martyr for the cause of his god, it seems to me that he was pure unadulterated EVIL, he is expecting to enjoy a bunch of virgins in paradise, instead his soul is now in hell, there are no virgins, just demons to torment him until the day of the Lord.

I find myself angered by this evil act of this man, but more to the point, I am angered by the moral stupidity of those who keep telling us that terror has nothing to do with religion, when it really has to do completely with religion. This man and the millions of others like him, consider themselves to be the purest practitioners of Islam and they do these things in the name of their god. They believe that they are working to bring their form of Islam to the entire world, they are working to restore the Ottoman Empire of the Turks which was destroyed in WW I. Their leader claims to be the Caliph of the Islamic State, They care nothing for human life, they rape and kill anyone Muslim or non-Muslim, Christian or Jews especially, but anyone who does not adhere to their view of Islam.

I have read a lot of history of that part of the world, and the nearest thing I see of these people who will kill and destroy in the way that they do, are the Assyrians an ancient enemy based in what is now Syria. They were an extremely warlike people who would come upon a walled city and would capture any they could, and impale them outside the city where they could be seen and heard. They would then demand the surrender of the city, they told the people inside the city gates that if they surrendered, they would live, but if not they would all be killed in the same manner as those who were screaming in agony outside the city walls.

What is it these people want? They want to bring the world to an end, they believe that once they are able to establish the world-wide caliphate, it will bring their messiah to earth, of course there will be a lot of bloodshed before this can be accomplished. They believe that if they die in the work of Jihad, they will be rewarded for eternity in paradise with many women who will always be virgins. This is PURE EVIL, there is no other way to describe what these people are capable of, they have no respect for any life anywhere. Their only aim is Holy War against all who do not practice their way of life, they kill men, women and children without any thought other than the idea that they are the ones who are going to destroy all who reject their brand of Islam.

If we do not recognize this, if we do not name it for what it is, then we cannot win against this form of hatred. Wake up America, wake up progressives who think you can kiss up to these people and they will let you live, wake up EU you have sealed your own fate by being unable to recognize what you are harboring within your nations. Death and destruction is coming to every one of your towns, cities and countries, because these people do not care about you even one iota. Wake up before the conflagration gets worse, before more 8 year old children have to die. Wake up all of you who are only interested in yourselves, this will catch up to you and it will destroy you.

Parasitic Bureaucracy

Thomas Jefferson spoke of the parasitic nature of government, in his time he wanted to rid the government of this bane on its ability to function. As we look at the government we have today, it is full of parasites. People in the House and Senate who have been there for most of their adult lives, and feel that they are entitled to stay until they can no longer function. Anyone who changes that, or who has the audacity to want to move them out of their position of power will be attacked with a vengeance.

Not only those in the House and Senate, but we also have a Bureaucracy that is loaded with parasites feeding off the backs of hard working Americans. President Trump refers to it as the swamp and wants to drain it and cast out the parasites. They are fighting with every ounce of their collective hatred to destroy this administration, to rid themselves of that which threatens their ability to run the government as they see fit.

This bureaucracy, has supplanted the politicians and is the actual engine that runs the government of the United States. These are the rule makers, they are the law makers and they make sure that any laws are to their benefit. When I worked in the District of Washington in the Army, I found out just how had it is to move a bad apple out of their position. They have made it almost impossible to fire them, even when they don’t bother to even show up for work, or refuse to do that task that is required, you can only transfer them to another office where they will continue to get paid to do nothing.

These are also the ones who are leaking information, even if it is false information, just to destroy the President and his administration. I do hope that this President and his administration will be able to drain the swamp that is the government of this nation, to include those in the House and Senate who are working to obstruct anything and everything the President wants to accomplish.

For those of you who also want to drain the swamp, I would suggest that you learn all you can about those who are running for office in your state, vote out those who are incumbents if they are trying to obstruct that which you know is to your benefit and that this President is trying to accomplish. The Democrats in the House and Senate want to keep Obamacare as the law of the land. They want Judges who will make law from the bench not interpret and enforce the Constitution and laws of this land. They are working very hard to destroy any work that this President wants to accomplish. Find people who want to uphold the Constitution in your State, and put them in office. Do not allow the hatred of the Democrats and some Republicans to blind you to your duty as American Citizens. Learn and then vote, look at what these politicians say, and then study what they do. If what they do is what they said they would do and you agree with it, then you know where your vote should go, it not then you also know where your vote should go.

Next year 2018, you  will have a chance to change the direction of this nation, all of the House of Representatives are up for election, and many of the Senators are also up for election. Please, learn and then vote, do not just vote blindly for either Republican or Democrat. If there is a third party candidate and you agree with that person more than the major parties candidates, vote for that person, even if that one does not win, if enough votes are cast for the third party candidate, it will force the two main party candidates to rethink the direction they want to take the country.

John Adams Founding Father
May 22, 2017, 2:39 pm
Filed under: Culture

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

JOHN ADAMS, letter to Jonathan Jackson, Oct. 2, 1789

It is a shame that we are working so hard to destroy our history, this statement by John Adams is something that should be known by every one in our nation. We are looking today at that which Adams dreaded in 1789. We do have 2 main political parties and they are diametrically opposed to each other. Of course the truth is that the Republican Party claims to stand for limited government and lower taxes and other so-called conservative principals, while the Democratic Party appears to be sliding into the morass of communism. Of course they claim it is progressive, but socialism has never been a progressive movement, look at Cuba, Venezuela and other countries who have tried this experiment, better yet look at North Korea to see what happens when socialism/communism becomes the way of life.

I like to refer to the Republicans as Republicrats, simply because they are also big government, big spending liberals just as are the Demopublicrats. The big spending on each side is the welfare that is paid out to their constituents. For the Dems it is welfare, food stamps, and other types of social programs. For the Repub it is more money on subsidies to big business, big pharma, the military / Industrial complex and wall street. Both of them want to keep bloated bureaucracy alive and well, so they can tax and spend to their hearts content.

I am still wondering where in the Constitution of the United States it says that the Federal Government can tell me how to educate my children, where is the line that says they can control which Doctor I see or what kind of insurance policy I can buy? Why is it that my tax dollars go to inflated salaries of Congress persons and Senators who every couple of years get to tell me that they are raising their own pay, and then of course the perks that go with their royal position. Since when do the employees get to tell the employers how much pay they get?

The Constitution tells us what they can and cannot do, but they ignore the Constitution all the while they swear to uphold and defend that founding document. The Democrat minority leader in the Senate says that he is a scholar of the Constitution, yet he is perfectly willing to ignore the checks and balances of that document except when they will give him the upper hand. He is all bent out of shape because there is now no longer any way to use the filibuster against the opposition candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court of the US, yet he never said a word when Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear” option when it was to his advantage to do so.

There is one other quote that I find interesting: Chris Matthews MSNBC, you know the guy whose legs got all fuzzy when he got to hearing Barack Obama. He said this: “Idiots voted for third and fourth party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.” This is patently ridiculous. If enough of us get our heads on right and realize that the two main parties, Republicrats and Demopublicrats are really not the only choices we have, and if we keep voting for these people who are only interested in lining their own pockets, passing laws that are in many ways unconstitutional, and telling us what we have to pay them rather than we telling them what we want them to do and expecting them to do it for the amount we are willing to pay them, then we deserve the chaos we now have.

There is one party out here in the land where it is still acceptable to love America, the land between the east coast and west coast, and that is the Constitution Party. If you actually care a whit about where our nation is headed and want to really make a difference then you need to take a look at what this party stands for. The national website is: http://www.constitutionparty.com/ and in Texas our website is: http://cptexas.us/home/ we need you to join with us and help us to work to put our nation back on the right track. Check out the Party Platforms and see what we stand for and then if you agree with us, fill out the membership form and sign up and get to work so we can replace the socialists and get this country to become again the Constitutional Republic it was formed to be.

I am presently the Chair for the Rio Grande (Del Rio) Area of the Constitution Party of Texas. If you want to talk with me send me a note at jquigley2@cpkinneytx.com I will be glad to give you any information you may need.

If you want to comment, please do, I welcome all comments.

Republicans unable to do right!

As I watched the unfolding of the drama this week in the House of Representatives, I saw a scene that made me ill. I watched as the Republicans in the House folded their losing hand and instead of working to fix it, they gave up. Of course I was sure that this group of do nothing congresspersons, led by the coward Ryan, would do what they did instead of standing up as real representatives of those who elected them to office.

It really appears that all their words are lies, they really did not want to end the prison that Obama and the Democrats have placed the American people in, they just want to be sure they can keep the power they have. Let us tell them that they have NO POWER, because we can elect people to office who will actually act on our behalf. We know it is not the Demopublicans neither of these parties will stand for us, they will stand only for their own power.

I wonder how many people in this country notice that all of these people who are politicians are getting rich off of our backs, they raise their own pay every couple of years, they live in mansions in D. C. and send their kids to private schools, but will not allow us to have the choice to do as they do. Yet we keep voting in the same people to office, and we keep getting the same results no matter which party is in charge.

I was not a supporter of Donald Trump, but I have to admit, I do see in him someone who will at least work for you and I, while the career politicians will work only to fatten their own wallets at our expense. I see the same stuff in my State, Texas has a very strong Republican presence in the State Capital, yet the Senate passes bills that call for real reform in Ethics, including calling on the politicians to be held to higher standards. The House which is solidly Republican, will not pass any bills that Republican Conservatives want to have passed. You see the Speaker of the House says he is Republican and campaigns as a conservative in San Antonio raking in tons of money to insure his winning back his seat, and staying as Speaker. The problem is this man is a RINO a Republican in name only. He actually appoints Democrats to committee chairs, bills that come from the Senate that call for reform, die in committee or get watered down with amendments which actually change the bill to something different than when it came from the Senate.

The bill of course is killed in the senate when it is sent back for agreement with what the Democrats and liberal Republicans in the house made it over to be.

So, we have a government that is controlled by Republicans but they cannot do the right things because they are RINO’s. Whether it is Texas or Washington D. C. it is the same problem. It is time for a third party, one that will adhere to the Constitution of the United States. It is time to repeal all the garbage that is costing our nation its freedom, it is time to rein in the “intelligence” community, because they are no longer interested in trying to protect our nation, they only want to protect their own little fiefdoms, so they spy on their own citizens.

What Is This Hatred doing to Political Discourse?
March 16, 2017, 9:09 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

I find myself in a quandary these days as I see people acting as if the world is coming to an end, and it is all because Donald Trump is now the President and he wants to destroy America. I hear a great deal about our “democracy” and how he is taking away our freedoms, and wants to deport millions of Mexicans who are here as immigrants. They forget the word illegal when they refer to these poor immigrants. Then a professor wants to allow a discussion to be held in his university and instead a horrible riot erupts, people do not want to allow this person to speak. Why? Because he has different views than they do and so his right to speech is offensive and he cannot therefore be allowed to voice his views.

Women wandering around in a big crowd, with signs saying they are against this, that, and the other thing, and wearing hats that are supposed to be a female sexual organ, what kind of people are these, and then one of them decides she will confess that she wants to blow up the white house. Where is the secret service? Why is this woman walking free? She wants to kill the president and any body else who happens to be in the White House at the time. Oh and we cannot forget Snoop Dog, who has a video out showing him shooting a clown made up like President Trump, where is the Secret Service on that one?

The Democrats promised that they would do everything they can to stop President Trump, and they have some lackey judges who are willing to join them in this, so they block a LEGAL  order from the President of the United States to work to protect our nation. A limited time ban on people who do not have legal status to travel to our country while they put in place a better system for vetting those who are coming from these countries. It was OK when President Obama declared these countries as not able to come into our nation because of the same reason that President Trump had for his executive order.

The President stands up and addresses the Legislative branch of Government in a joint session, and the opposition won’t even stand to honor a widow, instead the widow is castigated by democrats and made to look like she was being used. The Democrats are no longer the loyal opposition, they are just the enemy of anything like civil discourse. As for Hollywood, they are the haters of the year, I did not watch any of their self-congratulation shows since I knew it was going to be a bash the President at every opportunity. I was of course correct in my assumption.

Perhaps, I have gotten too old (72), I remember civil discourse in the house of government, even when there was disagreement, it was still civil. Now, it is a war, and it is one that says take no prisoners, destroy everything that the other wants to do and if needed destroy the nation just so we win! Well, if they keep it up, none of us win, we all lose because there will be no government, no country, we will be a third-rate power after the destruction of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, and even our Morality, which is already in tatters.

I don’t like the country that I see, I find it to be a dirty, dismal place, full of hatred and discord, and violence and I see no future for us if this continues. Listening to rhetoric from the fascist democrats I believe it will continue until there is no country left, they will destroy the nation trying to destroy the Presidency, because of their blind hatred of the man who holds the office.

I pray for our nation, but I am afraid that God has begun to withdraw his hand from America, his protection is no longer on us. Don’t sing God bless America, pray rather that God will forgive our iniquity, will forgive our hatred, our immorality, our telling God we don’t want him in our midst. Jesus Christ died to set us free from sin and here we are rejecting his teaching, so we can get drunk, have sex, abort babies, marry our same-sex partners, and all in the name of Secularism/Fascism. Forcing those who disagree with the hell we are making on earth, to pay fines and to close up their businesses because they still believe in the God of the universe.

If this is the world you want, I am glad that I belong to Jesus Christ, and this is not my home!

How do we treat the stranger?
February 12, 2017, 3:10 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

I ask that question, because it does matter how we treat those who come to our country. If they come as a legal immigrant, have we checked to see that they really want to become a part of the citizenry? Have we ascertained what they believe about our nation, and what they are coming here for? I do believe we have the right to insure that people who come to live in our nation should be checked out, vetted if you will, because to be truthful there have been quite a few people who came to our country with our death in their minds, and that is not a good thing for us.

I grew up in New York City, Staten Island to be precise,  in a neighborhood that had a lot of kids my age, we played games, from hide and seek, to football, baseball and other games. Cowboys and Indians, Cops and Robbers, Soldiers and other things. We did not think about who was what nationality, we did not worry about differences, we worried about who would win the games we played. We shared food and drink, we would go to each others homes when someone was BBQing and enjoyed being together.

In the reality of our time 1950’s and 60’s, we did not worry about anything except what was the next game we would play, and who was on who’s side. Then along came the late 60’s and we found ourselves watching people setting fire to their own neighborhoods, and none of us, black, white or yellow, could honestly understand why? It never has made sense to me why people will burn down homes, stores and whatever else might be handy.

My mother worked at the World Trade Center, she passed away in 1974, so she was not there when 2001 happened. That too made no sense, why did those people hate us so much that they had to kill and destroy? Fast forward to today, why do these people hate us so much they have to destroy and kill, maim and just plain hurt those others?

Let me go to the Holy Bible, since I am a retired Pastor, because I think it is important that we treat others properly. Here is what God says about the stranger living in our land. Granted, in this particular passage he is talking about the Jewish people: Num_15:15 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you, a statute forever throughout your generations. You and the sojourner shall be alike before the LORD. (ESV) Also here is another passage, Num 15:16 ESV One law and one rule shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.” Notice that there is to be one law and one rule for all who live in the land. In other words, if someone wants to come and live among us, they must be willing to live as we do, not separate, together under the same rule of law as we live under.

So how do we treat the stranger among us today? Mat 25:35-40 ESV For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, (36) I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ (37) Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? (38) And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? (39) And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ (40) And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ If we are to be true, moral people, then we treat those who come among us as we would want to be treated. Jesus told the story of the Samaritan who came upon a Jewish man lying almost dead in the road, he bound up his wounds took him to the nearest inn and paid the innkeeper to care for the man. Others had passed by and left the man for dead, but not the man of Samaria. He did what was right and proper. At the same time what if that man wanted to live under his own law, instead of the law of the land?

Again according to the scriptures, anyone who wants to come and live in your land, must live under the same law as you live. Therefore if the stranger comes and wants to live in your land, he or she must agree to live under the same laws as you do. What we see is that people coming into our country, want to change our country to what they were used to in their old country. This is not how it works, therefore, when the stranger comes to our land, we must ascertain whether or not they will live under our way of life or not. If the person does not want to live as we do, then they will not be welcome in our land.

Going back to living in New York City, when I worked on Wall Street, I could eat lunch every day in a different type of place. Italian, Chinese, Polish, Caribbean or American. The folks who ran those restaurants, were citizens, and lived as all of us live, and they too would go to different places themselves, because we all enjoyed the differences, but still were all Americans.

We speak of being a nation of immigrants, and that is true to an extent, however, we are also a nation of people who have a shared history, and we should be sharing that history with all who come to our country to live so that they can assimilate into society. We have forgotten that our ancestors had to assimilate into the society and they did so. We cannot last as a nation if we do not assimilate these newer folks into our society, instead, we will continue to see the hatred blossom until we find ourselves in the midst of a civil war, which will dwarf the one in the 1860s, too many have already been killed, we need to get ourselves back into the beauty of our history, the beauty of our nation. It is always working to get better, but lately we are reverting to hate and forgetting where our nation was, and now is going. Let us not lose our history to the idea that we must get rid of that which is not what we want to hear or see.

All these cries for safe spaces, and clean talk, are really destroying who we are. We have always cherished the fact that we can have conversation with others who are different and always still get along. However, today it seems that those who want to hear only their own voices will do anything to silence those who have different ideas. Whether it is Global Warming, or politics or whatever it might be. Believe me we are actually hurting ourselves, terribly by not allowing ourselves to hear dissenting opinions, it may just be that we find that those who differ also have some good ideas.

How do we treat the stranger? With respect, and honor, not with automatic hatred.

Tell me what you think, leave a comment, that we might have a conversation.
