cohen on capital hill

Hope ur savvy about wants going on in the nations capital. Supposedly on behalf of we Americans. And that of course, is debatable depending on ones perspective.

This writer hopes that it leads to the impeachment of trump which will be very difficult. So when, all is said and done, maybe months down the trump will fail at his bid for a second term.

During yesterdays congressional examination, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee Rep Jim Jordan said on numerous occasions that, “Americans put trump in the White House.” Which is not correct. The people elected Hillary Clinton, as their President. Hillary, beat the donald by nearly three million votes.

trump became President because of a scheme created by the nations founders. Intended to keep the people checkmated. Known as the Electoral College, it’s a beauty and has served the powerful and wealthy, oh so well.

Want to know a lot more about such a diabolic scheme for denying the will of the people. And perhaps, you in particular. Available to reveal its devilry to audiences everywhere. Found through the Contact Us link on my Home page.

revolt:it is a liars paradise

Someone said, “Don’t be fooled by those who have the power to lie.” So it is with former UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley. Who has been nominated for a seat on the board of directors for Boeing. Boeing, a defense contractor and aircraft manufacture. Their directors will deny, or confirm, her nomination at their, 29 April 2019, meeting.

So why is Haley a pearl of infinite wealth to Boeing? Because Haley the former governor of South Carolina is famous for fighting unions in their quest to represent employees, as they sought fair compensation.

The Chicago based company is so very profitable because of employee productivity. They want to make sure profits continue to soar while employee compensation dips. Haley is the person to work towards that end. As governor she declared, “Companies in my state take care of workers, and unions are not needed.” People, who believe that are a sorry lot.

To Haley, and the Boeing’s of America workers are nothing more than commodities. To be used and discarded when worn out. Unionization of the workforce prevent such occurrences. Need proof? Answer this, why are employers oppose the unionization of the workforce?

Want more info search, PBS Newshour, 26 Feb 2019, “UN Ambassador nominated to Boeing board of directors.” There you’ll find out that such ilk are not just Republicans.

The power to lie seems to be the pathway to influence and wealth. So the question, what is to be done about it? Engage this writer and get your answer.

trump hot bed of nothingness

Everything about trump is plain despicable. His constant lies which elude him as lacking presidential etiquette. He’ll be remembered as the President, who surrounds himself with people, who are forced to resign With all to many ending up going to jail. Where Trump himself might well  find himself. There seems to be an evil omen that haunts us. All to many trumps knowing the secret of this their sacred deliver allowing them to escape justice. “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” That omen has served them oh, so well, which seems like forever But trump, and ilk may be in for a shock.

But that will only occur, if ordinary people declare enuf is enuf. And cause a huge colossal tsunami to sweep away the nothingness of America. Ushering in liberty and equality for all.

We are coming to end of our celebration of Black History month. This Padre has wept over their decades of abuse. But has admired their stamina of fortitude as over comers.

These thought have entered my mind. Ordinary white people would never have enslaved black people. Except for the following. Rich, and powerful white land owners enslaved black people, as property for profit. To them they were machines, and when worn out they were discarded as useless.

And cowardly white people allowed them to get away with it. And to their shame created a wound that begs for their forgiveness and our combined healing today. It will only happen when the races see themselves as one people. Our only difference is our skin pigmentation. And together fight the evils of white supremacy which still exists today. Though the trumps deny it! Don’t be tricked some democrats are just as racists. That’s why we need that aforementioned colossal tsunami.

Get energized and help make it happen.

y america stinks

Because ordinary people have succeeded themselves to the rich, corrupt and powerful of the political right and left. Meaning neither Republicans or Democrats share are causes and needs.

This discussion will focus on the Republicans because they control 3/4 of our misleading democratic Republic. Which is the Oval Office, the Senate and the Supreme Court. The House of Representatives was erased from their control. Time will tell, if they clean house or not.

For now the donald will get his authority to serve his interest and those of his financial donors. Who don’t serve the public or global interest, serving self glorification of prestige of supposed to be public servants.

And, a free media is mostly a joke! They serve the interest of the aforementioned because they are news profiteers in business and not the public interest. But sometimes they screw up and worthy info gets to us proponents of the public good. Only public embarrassment and shame will end his tenure as Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Because the matter is being reviewed by the Justice Department. Justice for ordinary people what a joke. If the Justice Department had a sense of fairness and justice, they take action against Trump for abusing women as his play things. Nineteen woman couldn’t be liars. They say,
“Power corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

This matter surfaced, when a federal judge ruled in Florida that then U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta for the Southern District of Florida, and his former colleagues broke the law when they hid a 2008 plea from Epstein’s underage victims. The Judge said, “This despicable unjust plea deal was arranged by Acosta showed no respect for the sufferings of the victims and of credible accounts of human trafficking and was a clear abuse of power for political gain.”

Every picture tells a story

We all know that we live in a changing world. A world that changes so fast it is difficult keep up with the change. Consider immigration, and multiculturalism, a process well known to many Americans. In that America is a country made up of immigrants. Who represented many ethnic groups making America a people of many different cultures.

For a very long time, people came to America from the four corners of the world. They wanted to be Americans and worked hard to integrate themselves into the our American society. Most clung onto their cultural heritage. The Italians shared with the Irish, the Irish with the Germans. This was done at various festivals. The best from each culture. It was fun, and exciting to learn, and be apart of another ethnic world. But when it was over people went home, and worked together to make America better and stronger.

To a large extent that has changed. Today some people come to America and expect our American society to change in order to accommodate them. Making America appear as a nation among other nations.

This is not just an infliction that effects the United States. It is an infliction that effects other nations. The curse that is inflicting many nations is Islam. For Americans, think 9/11, and recall Muslims dancing in the streets of the Middle East, and elsewhere chanting death to America. Recall the architect of that attack announcing. “I was ordered to fight the people until they say there is no god, but Allah, and his prophet Muhammad.” And they, walk among us today!

These Muslims live, and work in our communities. Their religion does not allow them to assimilate themselves into Western culture. The word assimilate is used in the context to ‘resemble.’ Muslims want to remake the West in their image. Do not be fooled by a piece of paper proving citizenship. It use to mean something. The declaration of an accomplishment and an commitment to American ideals. It does not mean this to Muslim because their religion does not allow for such integration.

Consider the controversy that once swirled around in Australia and the global community. Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilaly, was born in Egypt. Moved to Lebanon, and came to Australia on a tourist visa 1982. The Sheik decided not to return to Lebanon. The Sheik eventually was granted permanent residence which led to full citizenship. Take notice because that is one way to move an army bent on a nations destruction. A question that begs to be answered. Why would a people who abhor our ideals and values come to countries that do not share Islamic ideals or values? Countries where they will be in the minority as an ethnic and religious group? Answer, to fulfill the prophet Muhammad’s directive from Allah. And they walk among us while being committed to our destruction.

Keep in mind he could have come to the United States. And ask, how many Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilaly do we have in the United States? And keep in mind the practitioners of Islam in other countries have called for the destruction of the Israel, the West, and the United States. And they walk among us!

Islamic clerics have a long history of attacking Israel. Their sermons often accuse Israel of trying to control the world through espionage, and economic hoarding. Jews, and Christians are called people of the book. Declaring that such people are the worst of God’s creation. And such,  attitudes aren’t absence from America today. With such adherents walking among us today!

Fortunately, not all Muslim clerics or Muslim people share such sentiments. It’s equally unfortunate that many do; so it’s necessary to be aware that evil could be ones real friend or enemy. Cautious awareness is the by word.

trump and tyranny

We all know how horrible human behavior can become. Seldom do we talk about it openly because any and all behavior in some way mirrors each of us. Betrayal in some form owns each and every human. Since we know this about our self, as a species. We have taken measures to bring control to our depraved natures. This is done through secular and religious law. Many like to think that law in the United States is based upon the nations Judeo-Christian heritage. It’s supposed to be the foundation for our moral and legal system.

An example of this is given in the Bible. A group of professional people trained in religion and law brought a women to Jesus. She had been caught in the very act of having sexual intercourse outside of the boundaries of marriage. The penalty according to the law was that she was to be stoned to death in public. These religious and legal scholars asked Jesus what he thought should be done. This was a test to see if Jesus would agree that the law should be honored. Jesus did not pay much attention to them. Instead he stooped down and with his finger doodled in the sand. Suggesting that their religious and legal customs were not worth observing. But, they pressed him for an answer. So he stood up, and said, he who is without religious or legal depravity. Let him throw the first stone. He then again stooped down to continue His doodling in the sand. A strange occurrence followed starting with the oldest scholar to youngest. One by one they left pricked by the remembrance of their own depravity. Picturesque of the reality that age does not make one less vulnerable to acute depravity but more so.

Here are a few thoughts from history. “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” phrase from a letter written by Lord Acton to Bishop Mandell, April 5, 1887, “Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and I know, my lords, that were laws end, tyranny begins,” a thought from a speech by Case of Wiles, January 9, 1770. Enlarging upon political philosopher, John Locke, who wrote in his Second Treatise of Government,1690, and said,”Where ever law ends, tyranny begins.”

And Jesus was left alone with the woman… and asked, Women where are your accusers?… Is there no man left to accuse you?… she answered, no man, Lord. Jesus responded, neither do I! … go and change.

Jesus failed the test. He did not honor the law. It was one of many of his deeds that lead to his execution. Fact, the Christ worshiped then was an enemy of religion and the state. Question, why is the modern church the embodiment of the state? The movement under Jesus was movement for change. Today it has been corrupted and made a bed fellow of the state.

The nation is faced with monumental decision concerning Donald J Trump. It appears that his crimes far exceed those of Richard Nixon in the 1970’s. With the possibility of being found guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Then made to stand before the Senate to face charges as alleged by the Peoples House of representatives.

If exonerated, then Trump has the governments forgiveness. Then he should be admonished to go and change. Only mercy could exonerate Trump. Because those in the peoples house and the Senate like the woman before Jesus could find no accusers who were not also guilty. Because the House, and Senate are as guilty as is Donald J Trump. Which means under the Christ principle, they can not pronounce guilt.

That still leaves the nations people with a major dilemma. What to do with a government that has clearly demonstrated the aforementioned precepts. Where ever law ends tyranny begins. The chaos within the Trump government is testimony that power tends to corrupts  and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Donald J Trump puts all Americans at risk.

If all fails, we the people have this Constitutional precept available to us in our Declaration of Independence, “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for the people to dissolve the political bands…. 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…. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to those ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…”

Remember from the Shadrack, Meshach, and Abednego analogy from Daniel? We are the collective consciousness of that fourth genderless person in Nebuchadnezzar fiery furnace. Regardless of how hot the fire is the people can endure. Are we up to the task?

Jussie Smollett

Police, “Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career.”

Black Police Superintendent Johnson, “I’m left hanging my head and asking why?” Continuing, “Why would anyone, especially an African American man, use symbolism of a noose to make false accusations? How could someone look at the hatred and suffering with that symbol and see an opportunity to manipulate that to further his own public profile? How can an individual who’s embraced by the city of Chicago turn around and slap everyone in this city by making these false claims?”

Smollett an actor, musician, gay and black gained significant support. Including, President Trump, who initially sided with Smollett said, “It doesn’t get any worse, as far as I’m concerned.” And, Presidential contender, Cory Booker tweeted, “The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern day lynching.”

And the whirlwind of changed minds, support and non-support causes one to wonder, in America is anyone believable?

Ancient wisdom for modern times. “Do not be wise in your own eyes. Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones, Proverbs 3:7-8. Health, and strength it’s what we all want, most would agree. Work on applying the many principles found in the book of Proverbs.

crime pays

If the shoe were on the other foot, what would happen? Meaning that if the circumstances were different the out come would also be very different. This is especially true for those who make up the nation’s elite. As opposed to ordinary Americans, doing the best they can to survive.

This discussion will focus on a situation with a horrid history were crimes were committed but the offenders escape jail. Which of course would not be true for most Americans, if they committed comparable crimes. Some people can commit horrendous crimes against humanity. Perhaps they will be fined, but even then the fines will be small. But for the situation to be discussed, fines did not apply, rather a mere reprimand was handed out.

In America crime really pays if you are a part of America’s elite society. The rules are different for people who are apart of America’s elite society. That is because they write the rules. They then sit as judge and jury as who is to be punished with prison time, fined, or reprimanded. Do not be fooled by the few elitists who do draw prison sentences. Those people who represent America’s elite society understand that from time to time they must drop the heavy hammer on their own. It is done more for image than effect. Attempting to persuade society that the rules apply equally to everybody. In the end they will do what ever is necessary to protect each other. Even if they have to turn their evils against an innocent American  which they do repeatedly with impunity.

Readers should think of themselves as being responsible for comparable harm over a fifty year period. Then think about comparable punishment. Really, readers do not even have put themselves into comparable situations. All one has to do is visit a local court house.There they are sure to find an incident were the offender will be severely punished. In some cases the offense was not that serious. One might speculate that the punishment did not fit the crime. Often in America, the more removed one is from being “elite” the greater the punishment.

Perhaps some readers are not comfortable in criminal court. Then visit the sacred halls of the court rooms where civil proceedings occur. Observe how severely the judicial system punishes people for certain civil violations. There you will also discover how great the disparity in justice can be for people. The disparity is measured by distance removed one is from being “elite.”

For example, a federal judge awhile ago told seven major tobacco companies that they had violated federal racketeering statutes. She told those criminals that she was bound by the appeals court to impose punishments that were “forward looking and not punishment for past actions.” If that does not have the smell of ‘elitism,” what does? Where in the criminal code does can one find a law that dictates “forward looking remedies which excuse past behavior?” They do not exist, unless your pockets are lined with great wealth. Meaning this powerful tobacco industry of executive powerhouses are part of this damnable “elite” society. Where standards of justice are measured according to wealth. Then and today.

A Google search provided the following. “Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths in the United States. Including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand exposure. That is about five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day!”

In the end the average American citizen will never wear the shoes of “elitism.” Therefore, our American society will remain unfair with the skew of inequality growing greater every day.

This writer is available to lecture on the above subject matter. Emphasizing the necessary strategies for the abolishment of “elitism” in America. A pure evil for the average hard working American.

road rage

“Always remember that when you set out on a journey with revenge at the end of it, it is necessary to first dig two graves.” Source: fictional novel.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.” See Proverbs 15:1-2.

Suggestion: Traffic congestion is a test of self control. Find a way to prominently place the aforementioned because it could become a two way life saver.

principled life

“Inasmuch then, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood. He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him, who had the power of death that is the devil.” See Hebrews 2:14.

He did that for us. Now it’s our turn. It’s the silent way to make the world a better place. “Now thanks be to God, who always leads us to triumph in Christ. And though us, diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God, the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved, and among those who are perishing.: See 2 Corinthians 2:14-15.

unattended garbage pollutes

Washington Post columnist, Richard Cohen, 12 Feb 2019, asserted that Christians like Mike Pence are bigots for not supporting homosexuality. WRONG!

Be assured that this Padre does not support the Pence/Trump regime. It is my hope that Trump doesn’t complete his current term let alone a second term. Available to discussion his elastic threat to democracy. Along with discourses on our Electoral College fiasco. And, any other topic that tickles your fancy. Found through the Contact Us link on my home page.

Because Cohen’s opinion is garbage, and must be attended to because unattended it pollutes.

Facts: “Therefore for a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” See Genesis 2:24. And, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery …. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular, so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” See Ephesians 5:31-33.

This is a very controversial issue that can’t be settled by pundits like Cohen or the church. The church is a stagnant hypocritical and profit driven institution.

And people, like Cohen pick up on this and are unable to separate the difference between God’s truth and moral depravity and then acerbated by religionist. Giving the likes of Cohen more fuel to dogmatize a serious biblical issue.

Advice: Ignore blind ignorance from Cohen and associates. They are confusion artist. Also steer away from church opinions on any all issues. Instead study the Bible, and you’ll determine for yourself on what side of any issue to support.

Pay careful attention to the Apostle Paul’s discourses. And you’ll discover that Paul was chosen to be God’s reliable spokes person post Christ resurrection era. Right through to the end of this historical season. Which, will usher in yet another very different season.

Here is an amazing truth because from the ranks of these people unbiased declarations were experienced and then shared. Unbiased because religious institutions were not influential, for what was revealed as God’s truth. And, it still works that way today, if your one of the fortunate ones! Said Esaias, “I was found of them that sought me not. I was made manifest to them that asked not of me.” See Romans 10:20.

Maybe in future discussions this Padre will share the causes of homosexuality and sexual identity confusion.

 

lunatic trump

Trump sits in the peoples house where he doesn’t belong. He lost the national election to candidate Clinton by nearly 3 million votes. So how did he get there though he lost? Concisely, each state selects, note voted, delegates to serve in what is called the Electoral College. Irrespective of the national popular vote of millions a minority of state electors decide who the President will be. It’s a flawed constitutional system that we the people need to abolish. Because, a nation wide popular vote in a true democracy must prevail.

The Electoral College was created because the nations founders thought that that was the best way to guarantee the privileges enjoyed by the wealthy. And because, they were certain ordinary citizens were incapable of determining which candidate was most qualified to serve as President.

That flaw has caught up with we the people. As trump has created a constitutional crisis! By declaring a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border. And by so doing, he plans use money authorized by Congress for specific purposes.

Trump plans to take that money and build his wall. Trump argues he has the authority through the National Emergencies Act create by Congress in 1976. Which has been utilized by other Presidents, but none of them were as wacky, reckless and dangerous as trump.

So what must be done to curtail the misguided behavior of trump. Congress must file a joint resolution declaring trump’s declaration unconstitutional. Because trump circumvented the Constitutional mandate of separation of powers. Trump is crazed with his sense of power. He’s crazy enough to declare himself President for life. Watching his behavior, and listening to his rants and tweets. Suggest he’s in need of psychiatric care. Congress must not surrender their authority to trump. Congress must stand up to him.

If that doesn’t work, than we the people through various legal organizations must turn to the courts for remedy. There’s a difference between a national emergency and trump pouting over political differences.

If that doesn’t work, then our semi-democracy in America will have experienced a potentially fatal wound. Making recovery doubtful!

plan dump trump

Seems like former Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe, and others within the Justice Department thought a looney tune occupied the presidency. It seems to center around trumps erratic behavior. So they concocted a plan to exit trump from the presidency. The details are suppose to be a featured interview CBS’s 60 minutes program tomorrow. The program airs at 19 hundred hours ET/PT.

CBS interviewer, Scott Pelley, recently said, “McCabe and associates were trying to determine what to with the president.” Apparently, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire so that conversations between the two could be recorded.

Why? It became believable to them that Trump might be working on behalf of the Russians in opposition to US interest. Don’t miss 60 minutes its aftermath is going to make an unstable president nuclear.

y constitution change must occur

“The present Constitution is the standard to which we are to cling. Under its banners, bona fide must we combat our political foes. Rejecting all changes, but through the channel itself provides for amendments,”Alexander Hamilton, 1802.

We are approaching 232 years  as a constitutional republic that had its beginning in 1787.

Few really know that the U.S. Constitution is mostly an economic blueprint. Designed to create an elitists society. One reason the new nation thrived was because of the enslavement of a whole class of people. The purpose, and function of slaves was to enrich the white elite of the nation. A war had to be fought to end the insidious evils of slavery. But as most know its insidiousness still  haunts the nation today.

Women had no role to play in this infant nation other then to bear children and serve their husbands. Human rights played no significant role in the young nation other then to protect white males. And, their battle for equality is still being fought.

A collective battle needs to fought to eliminate the constitutional electoral college. Because it was designed to preserve the ruling power of the nations elite. It has served them well for which donald trump well appreciates. The people spoke, and elected Hillary Clinton as president buy nearly three million votes. But the elitist electoral college ignored the people and gave the presidency to trump. True democracy must be governed by the majority vote.

As Hamilton wrote, “The Constitution is the standard to which we are to cling.” It is an amazing story that the Bill of Rights found there way into American Law. Along with the right for Americans to amend their Constitution. They are the only documents that our present elite society shows any respect. A trip done knowledge lane is worth the drive.

This padre is available to lecture on the battle that occurred to make the Bill of Rights apart of the nations highest law. Along with any other constitutional issues that might be of interest.

lobbyists

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilbam Omar, a Somali refuge became a congresswoman during the 2019 mid-term elections. She was one of two Muslim woman elected to Congress. That was a good experience for America because America is suppose to be a nation of inclusiveness. A struggle elusive to the American dream.

On twitter, Rep Omar took aim at two organizations that she accused as being lobbyist for Israel by giving money to politicians who support the Jewish state.

Those tweets brought a swift rebuke from both Democratic and Republican politicians.

Causing Rep Omar to offer an apology. She said that it wasn’t her intentions to offend any of her constituents. Also saying, that it was a learning experience. But she added, “I am not backing on the problematic role of lobbyist in our government.”

Hopefully, Rep Omar  will do just that and that Americans will support her. Because, Rep Omar is right about lobbyists! She just needs to take aim at their polices harmful to all Americans. And not people because of their ethnicity, gender or genetic identities.

have u noticed

Have you ever heard it said, “Nice doesn’t work?” Nice does work sometimes in matters of general etiquette but its fast slipping away. Unfortunately today nice results in being taken advantage. And, even worse being seen as weak. Buckle up because its only going to get worse the deeper we plough into the 21st century.

Why is that occurring, when life is better through politeness. It’s one of the signs that age we live in is going to be exited for a worse one. “Know this that in the last days perilous days will come.” See 2 Timothy 3:1. Check this out, “For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, …, unthankful, …, …, unforgiving, …, slanders, without self control, brutal, despisers of good, …, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God.” See 2 Timothy 3:2-4.

Best advice, “Having a form of godliness, but denying its power, and from such people turn away! See 2 Timothy 3:5.

A Roman Justice in American Courts

Justita, the Roman Goddess of Justice, the symbol of moral fairness is suppose to characterize American jurisprudence. Often found somewhere on the grounds of our courthouses. The ardent observer will sometimes find Justita in the nations court rooms. This writer has found her in the sacred chambers of some of the nations jurists. Usually Justita, is prominently placed in the judges chambers.

This writer has often wondered just what message, if any, the judge was attempting to convey. Especially, since justice in America most often is the result of hard fought battles. Which required a whole lot of effort, and sacrifice.

Is Justitia wearing a blindfold, symbolizing that moral fairness is what America is all about? And the nation’s courts are present to enforce the nation’s commitment to moral fairness.

She is bear breasted, carrying a sword, and scales. Why does she carry a double edged sword in her right hand? Does this suggest the power of judicial force to humble the might of the most powerful in America. In Justita’s, left hand she carries her scales. Could this symbolize the power of reason? From reason, the scales are tipped, signifying the strength or outcome of the case.

When this writer finds himself in the chambers of his holiness, or her honor, the time is never right to ask what Lady Justice symbolizes to the honorable court. Because this writer, usually finds himself in chambers. Some sacred tenet has been challenged that has been deemed unchallengeable.

So if sometime the question can be asked, an assumption is hoped for that the public’s humble advocate would be asked, how do you see Lady Justice? The reply would be simple. She would drop her blindfold and wink. Symbolizing her approval, for advancing American morality as she intended.

As for her bare breast, without question, symbolizing the innocence’s and purity of her cause. Cutting asunder with her sword all those who would impede her sense of justice. And that eventually the scales will dip in favor of those who deserve justice. She wears the blindfold because she is ashamed of justice denied in American courts. And winks at every small victory!

That is the analogy waiting to be delivered by this writer, padre, and peoples advocate.

strategy the worst of it

The mice, who were at war with the weasels were always getting the worst of it. They held a meeting, and concluded that their defeats were due to the lack of leadership. They chose some of their number and elected them generals. Then in order to distinguish themselves from the rest, they made horns and fixed them on their heads.

When they went into battle their, and enemies were routed and took flight. The victors returned and got into their holes. Except the generals, who were unable to get into their holes on account of their horns. But the melee wasn’t over, and the generals were caught and devoured.

America Diseased by Corporate Conglomerates

In a democracy the government is suppose to be obedient to the will of the people. For decades, one administration after another has made such an supposition meaningless. One Congress after another has passed legislation. Later to be signed into law by the President. And in some incidences, confirmed by the United States Supreme Court.

All this has rendered the American people as subjects to an imperialist regimes in the nation’s capital. We the people, have been selectively removed from the equation. Only to be replaced by the slickest criminals imaginable; the United States corporate conglomerates. They represent the money that has made the United States into an Imperialist state.

The end result of this, union, we call America. Based upon its Constitutional system of checks and balances. With the American people sitting at the helm as the single arbiter of the governments performance. All this has been rendered inconsequential by the nations corporate conglomerates. Now, those corporate conglomerates sit at the helm, as the nations arbiter of government performance.

Elected people that now make up this United States government pay tribute to corporate America. If they want to become office holders, and later if they want to retain their office. For those who doubt this premise, here is a little exercise. Take notice of each election cycle. Note the amount of money national and state candidates generate from those corporate hoodlums. Generally, the candidate who secures the largest intake of money will be the person, who wins the election.

Then try to find successful political candidates, who reject money from these corporate conglomerates. Searchers will be hard pressed to find successful candidates.

The self test though is the best for doubters. Run for public office, and do more than just reject corporate money. Find fault with those corporate conglomerates at the nations helm. Such candidates will not have the slightest chance for victory. Because dirty money buys dirty politics, and such candidates will find themselves buried in the foulest of dirt.

All was done without firing a bullet! Now is the time for Americans to unite and reclaim America. WE the people, must create our own revolution. A deadly revolution, without firing a bullet. The midterm election cycle served as a great example, as democrats retook control of the peoples house. For this padre, the most impressive marker of our victory was the inclusive diversity among our successful candidates. Making 2020 ever so important, if our American turn about is to continue.

For democracy to succeed the citizenry must be the sole arbiters of the governments performance. And not the power of money, and influence generated from America’s corporate conglomerates.

Truthfulness and its Sour Consequences

A women approached this padre. She feared arrest for something she had done. Her question was simple. Should I admit my transgression to the police? Without hesitation a response was provided, No! She seemed shocked. But, but she stuttered. I’d be lying, and I fear God might punish me. Which of course, brought this reaction. What about the act that could lead to your arrest? Do you think God is going to ignore that act without punishing you? Her face filled with tears. This padre assured her that in the end, God would hear her confession. Offering her His mercy and forgiveness, and all would be okay between her and God. Fortunately for all of us, Christ is all about mercy and irrespective of the wrong.

So I sat her down. Told her that the American judicial system is not about right and wrong. The guys and gals in black robes would like the public to think its about right and wrong, but it is not. And for that matter, so would the other members of the court; the lawyers. It shortens their duty to the state and the public. Also our American justice is more about money than fairness or punishment. Which is why it is all about winning and losing, and not right or wrong.

That’s a lot said in those few sentences. It is the subject matter of semester long law school courses. For that matter, it will come up one way or another for the students three years in law school. But some, will never quite grasp the full context of what is really being taught.

The counsel that was provided to this particular women will serve most well. Never admit to any error or wrong doing that might have negative consequences. Because, you can not withdraw your statements. And furthermore, once admission is given, it removes any maneuvering ability for future negotiations. That’s sound advice whether you live in our Tampa Community or elsewhere through out this nation.

Life is complicated. Always put yourself in the best position to win. Whether it is within, or outside the judicial system. Because if you do not, you could be thrown to the Apes. Now you know, why this writer told the tale of the Apes in the last posting.
