How The Left Uses History To Undermine A Republic

By now, most people have heard the liberals comparing President Trump to Adolf Hitler. One can assume this is due to Trump's immigration reform policies, his stance on Muslims and Muslim refugees, his ongoing conflicts with the mainstream media and print journalism, and his campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again". The more interesting analysis is why they would exactly do this. There are a couple reasons one can conclude for this. One reason would be they are not well-versed in German history and have just a cursory knowledge of NAZI Germany and thus don't honestly know the facts and truth of history. A second reason may be that they do have a full-fledged knowledge of the NAZI's and are just playing fast and loose with the truth and facts in order to paint a false narrative in the minds of Americans. With the dumbing down of America over the last several years through our failing education system, it is quite plausible that just incurring this image of Hi…

An American Tragedy

A tragedy is defined as a play dealing with tragic events and having an unhappy ending, especially one involving the downfall of the main character. That main character is typically brought down by his/her own flaws, which usually tend to be ordinary human flaws. Given America's current political landscape there are numerous words that could be chosen to describe how a once great constitutional republic has found itself in the midst of a Bolshevik revolution. Ironic, for a country who fought against fascism and communism, that it now finds those same fascistic winds blowing in the land of the free. However ironic it is, tragic most aptly sums up how America has fallen due to its own flaws. Those flaws include ignorance, apathy, a broken moral compass, a loss of patriotism, and a distinct move away from God.
Just forty years ago, Ronald Reagan ushered in an American revival. After the dark malaise of the Carter years, he infused a shot of patriotism and energy that reinvigorated the…

The Abject Failure Of Nixon's China Policy

On February 21st, 1972 President Richard Nixon arrived in China for a historic eight-day trip. He was taking a risky gamble. But in Nixon's mind it was a gamble worth taking. Nixon wrote:

"The world cannot be safe until China changes. Thus our aim, to the extent that we can influence events, should be to induce change. The way to do this is to persuade China that it must change: that it cannot satisfy its imperial ambitions."
He had three main goals. First, opening up China would give the United States more flexibility on the world scene. Second, it would provide the U.S. more leverage against the Soviet Union and get their attention. Third, he hoped it would help in resolving the Vietnam War and provide for a way to pull out and save face.

Ultimately, Nixon didn't get his wish on Vietnam. China continued to provide arms, materials, and fighters to the North Vietnamese leading America to a humiliating retreat. He fared much better though on his goal of gaining levera…

A Wake Up Call

January 2nd, 2020 started off like any other workday for me. When I woke up at 5am I had no idea that God would deliver me a wake-up call some five hours later. I showered and shaved as usual and got myself dressed for work. Fixed some sandwiches and packed my lunch for a full day of stops doing pest control work. I drove to Huntsville, Alabama and arrived at the Target Distribution Center around 7:45am. I did my inspection of the facility and around 10:30am I ended up back in my work truck to type up my report on my phone. That's when God sent me a personal wake-up call.

My phone dropped from my right hand and my right arm went numb and dead. My entire right-side of my body was numb. My right-side of my face began twitching and my speech was slurred. I recognized the signs. I was having a stroke.

It lasted for ten to fifteen minutes. I had no choice but to ride it out until it finally subsided. After I felt feeling slowly coming back I decided to get out of my truck and see if I…

The Real Conversation Democrats Don't Want To Have

After a week of listening to the talking heads and politicians bloviating on more gun laws, gun buyback programs, red-flag laws, and further curtailing the Second Amendment it has become crystal clear that we have the same conversations everytime there is a mass-shooting in our republic. We never truly have serious conversations about guns and gun violence. This latest massacre is all about politics and using President Trump, the NRA, and "white supremacists" as the boogeymen by Democrats to gain votes and power in the 2020 elections. You can't blame them for trying to deflect from the real conversation they don't wish to have. That real conversation should be about the moral decay in our republic and how moral relativism has led us to this point. How Democrats and the left have played a key role in aiding and abetting this moral decay over the last fifty years.

When you continue to push God further and further away through a virulent and consistent messaging and se…

The Interesting Quandary For Democrats And Biden

The Democrats have a dilemma. Joe Biden leads the polls for the Democratic Party presidential nomination as he officially announces his candidacy. The barrage of attacks already began even before he officially put his hat in the ring. When you are perceived as the leader the long knives usually come out. The issues revolve around Biden being just a tad too friendly and invasive around women and little girls. Those pictures and video clips have been around for years now but recently a few women have come forward to the press to highlight their own uncomfortable experiences around Joe. But Biden has much deeper problems than being too friendly with his hands and mouth.

The deeper problems involve pay-for-play and obstruction of justice. As journalist Peter Schweizer has highlighted in his book, "Secret Empires: How The American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends," Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, have some serious questions to answer involvin…

What If...

As a student of history and politics my opinion has always been that America has freedom and liberty in the DNA of the people. Compared to a country like Germany, for example, where the people have been more accustomed to kings and strong government control, America has had a rich tradition of rugged individualism and independence. My thought has been one where the idea of socialism ever becoming vogue in our republic was largely laughable. But what if that basic assumption is wrong? What if that particular gene in the blood of Americans has been gradually removed over the last one hundred years, generation after generation?

What if the progressive crowd has been largely successful in reshaping and indoctrinating Americans to be more open and receptive to the socialist ideology?

What if the American people have been steadily weaned off of critical thought and common sense?

What if ignorance and apathy are so pervasive in our republic that people just don't know or don't care …

Death, Tyranny, And The Pursuit Of Misery

There was a time not too long ago when the Democratic Party was more subtle in their wording. You had to read between the lines a bit more to understand their code words. Words and phrases like "for the people", "a working wage", and "a fair shake for all" were more nuanced ways to ultimately candy coat their socialist ideas and platform. But that was before Donald Trump came along. Hard to say what is more frightening and disconcerting. The fact that Democrats like Hillary Clinton lied for so many years when they said they wanted abortion to be safe, legal, and rare or that they feel so free and open now they don't have to lie anymore. What is not up for argument is that over the last several days and weeks that veil is now completely gone.

The Democrats have been tripping over each other to show the American people just how much they have become the Party of Karl Marx. From Elizabeth Warren wanting to create a wealth tax on Americans with more than…
