These Divided States of America
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God ….. “ ~ 2 Timothy 3:1-4
In a deranged world turned upside down, in these divided states of America, it is America’s sane patriots who are labeled insane, while Her people suffer under the final stages of cultural Marxism. Society is being turned upside down through the Democratic Party’s attempts at enforcing their twisted morality on us all, and as they externalize conservatives, Christians and Trump supporters as their enemies they use anything they can to smite these people down in their bid for power, discovering satisfaction in destruction, as an end in itself, making their lives seem to have greater meaning by way of their bedlam and chaos. And thus, the stage is set for an epic war for the heart and soul of America, waged between the would be tyrants and liberty minded Americans, between evil and good, dark and light. Continue reading
In the heat of contested debate between the advocates of President’s Trump impeachment and his defenders, an issue of much larger importance than the fate of Mr. Trump’s presidency has evaded everyone’s attention:
If the pro-impeachment House majority has its way and keeps investigating the President for possible “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” as it pleases then how he, and future Presidents, who happened to be disliked by the House’s majority, are supposed to carry on their executive power vested in them by the Constitution?

…and one must blame much of this on the U.S. Congress, which is more concerned with superfluous issues. The U.S. Veterans continue to suffer, go without quality and much needed health care – for both physical and emotional strife. ~ Ed
The Defense Department’s latest report on the epidemic of active duty and reserve service members shows 541 took their own lives in 2018. The Defense Department says it’s taking further steps to address suicides, such as teaching service members ways to identify suicide “red flags.” Continue reading
More evidence the “whistleblower” complaint was a political hit job to take down Trump
Evidently within the Washington Beltway the identity of the anti-Trump “whistleblower” — the hack who submitted a complaint over President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with the president of Ukraine — has been an open secret for some time. However, due to House Democrat demands that the whistleblower remain anonymous in order to “protect” him from Trump, the mainstream media has dutifully complied. And House Republicans’ hands have largely been tied by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who has forbidden public comments on the specifics of the closed-door hearings. Continue reading
“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” ~ Montesquieu, French Judge and Political Philosopher, (1689 – 1755)
You think you are a law-abiding citizen, don’t you? Think again! You have been, you are now, and you will continue to break the law for the rest of your life, because there are too many laws, with millions more laws to follow. Many of these laws are totally unconstitutional but have never been challenged in the courts. Sometimes you break the law without any knowledge of it, even though ignorance of the law is not an excuse, if you are caught. But worse, millions are breaking the law because they are convinced the laws are illegal, or just plain stupid. With more people intentionally breaking the law, eventually the rule of law breaks down, as does our Republic. Continue reading
Is even communism making a comeback?
Somewhere, Bernie Sanders is smiling.
A new survey released by the Washington, D.C., nonprofit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation reflects that, if the younger generation gets out and votes in 2020, those running for office on the far left have reason to be hopeful. Continue reading
Yes __ The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has largely been defeated physically and militarily, but its ideas burn hot still in the hearts of millions of Muslims this very moment. And as everybody and his brother seems so overjoyed that ISIS leader Al Baghdadi was just killed by U.S. Special Forces and they are giving back-slaps over defending America from Islamic terrorism in an overseas arena, these same fools have essentially sold America out to the Muslims for decades now. Continue reading
In the latest development in a family court case that has drawn national attention, Judge Kim Cooks of Texas’ 255th Family District Court ruled Thursday that a father whose son was being transitioned to female by his mother would have joint medical decision-making rights, according to The Texan.
Despite the fact that the struggle between Jeff Younger and his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, has been a contentious cultural flashpoint, only a limited number of reporters were allowed in the courtroom to witness Cooks’ ruling.
California is about to implement new abortion and homosexuality-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.
California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” (Continue…)
The fact that socialists are openly running for public office in America — that socialists actually hold public office in Congress — should serve as enough wakeup call that the nation’s moral and political compasses are skewed, in dire need of correcting.
That it doesn’t only screams this: America’s public school systems have become utter failures. (Continue…)
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, multiple states began working to implement amendments to their state Constitutions to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage, that of one man and one woman, united in holy matrimony. I, along with many Christians were firmly on board with these measures, knowing that the foundation of a strong society DEPENDED on the natural family structure to survive and thrive… indeed “traditional” marriage was the “norm” for thousands of years. Homosexual relationships were rare, but we could see what was coming…. though we had NO idea just how INSANE things would eventually become. Continue reading
How is 97 percent of Congress able to get re-elected each year even though only 17 percent of the American people believe our representatives are doing a good job?
It’s called an incumbent protection system. Taxpayers have a right to know how it works.
Recently, our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com, mashed up the federal checkbook with the congressional campaign donor database (source: OpenSecrets.org). We found powerful members of Congress soliciting campaign donations from federal contractors based in their districts.
We followed the money and found a culture of conflict-of-interest. The confluence of federal money, campaign cash, private employment, investments, prestigious committee appointments, political power, nepotism, and other conflicts are a fact pattern. Continue reading
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and loved not only the city but also the many state and national parks which my family used for summer vacations along with later backpacking in the Sierras. The California of my youth simply was a wonderful place to live and thrive.
So, how has my native state fared under the now several decades of authoritarian demonic Democrat Party Rule?
The reality facing contemporary Californians simply is this: Forest fires, mudslides, high taxes, unaffordable housing, sanctuary cities, rising crime rates, homeless encampments, filth, needles and most critically — the cutting off of the lifeblood of electricity. Continue reading
Time and again in every election we see politicians promise everything, and once elected deliver very little or nothing. Beth Van Duyne is a welcome exception and her past record clearly proves it.
A person of impeccable integrity, Beth has always remained loyal to the values and wishes of her constituents and has not compromised them on the altar of political expediency so widely practiced by self-promoting politicians. A devoted mother beaming with energy and the talent to get things done, Beth is indeed the kind of person the US Congress desperately needs. Continue reading
Nothing is what it appears to be. We know this deep in our bones, but rarely do we spend much time digging into ultimate realities. America’s wealth and vitality have made it possible for most of us to entertain ourselves and go about our business, rarely thinking too deeply about anything. We had a little flurry of shock and curiosity when JFK was assassinated, but that has petered out. The tragedy of 9/11 has worn off. Those things came and went, but didn’t seem to hit at the core of the American soul. All that’s happening now does.
If it weren’t for my firm belief that Almighty God controls history, I’d be beside myself; things seem so unsettled. We no longer have two political parties, rather two separate realities, which, given the Law of Non-contradiction, means one of them is highly delusional. Which camp is that? Which one is the cult?

The recent “withdrawal” of U.S. troops from Syria is one of the most complicated issues on might ever attempt to address, since so many groups and dynamics and international concerns are involved. Too many in the political arena and the media conflate our “alliance” with the Kurds and our fight against ISIS with the Kurds long-running war for a free unified Kurdistan. This was a “marriage of convenience”, however, it is a damn shame that the United States didn’t try to implement more measures and safeguards to prevent U.S. actions in the area from being used as a mechanism for giving Erdogan the upper hand in the area. Continue reading
False accusations are inherently impossible to defend oneself against because they have no existence in reality and exist only in the ether and the minds and mouths of the false accusers.
Further, since there are no consequences to the false accuser for making false allegations, I could sit here at my computer and instead of writing this short essay could make false accusations about anyone anywhere on the face of the earth. Continue reading
The following was sent to me mid-day today in response to my post of several days ago, So tired of America… wherein I closed my forwarding remarks by stating, “Each reader will draw from the following what moves your own emotion.” Yet, working with Justin on a daily basis, he detected far more than my opening words would reflect – for it was the words of the song that drove home a point, although for the singer – it had other meanings. The following are Justin’s words and concerns for me and although they were written to and for me – I began to realize that that there are many people out there who are going through the same dark feelings that I am and by posting his letter and concerns – that maybe we can reach some others as well – and maybe we can make a difference in America’s future as well. ~ Ed.
…and Stick It Where The Sun Don’t Shine!
I’m tired, tired beyond words. I know I’m not alone in feeling the way I do, but that knowledge does nothing to alleviate the overwhelming weariness that bears down upon me like a mountain of boulders. This weariness is does not come as a result of any physical exertion, it is mental and comes from being unable to find people with whom I can hold an intelligent conversation. Continue reading
The following (in an edited version) was posted on Facebook by my post-9/11 cohort, Dennis Jackson and was written by Alyssa Ahlgren, who’s in grad school at the University of Wisconsin (not Madison) for her MBA. It’s a short article but definitely worth a read, and says much about how I am feeling as of late – but NOTE the simplicity of the authors presentation… Oh no – don’t make this too difficult to understand – make it simple – and then maybe – MAYBE you will be able to reach some of the entitled basement dwelling, cell-phone crowd to understand the simplest things in life. Kudo’s to the author. OH, please send this to your kids and those who MIGHT understand. ~ Ed.
It goes without saying that every child that arrives into this world is a helpless infant at the mercy of others, not only to be fed, cleaned and protected, but also to be informed about the bewildering life we face. The caretakers, parents and immediate family can teach the newborn only what they know and believe themselves which was handed down to them by the adults that raised them. Continue reading
The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) recently released a powerful position statement stating that the move to indoctrinate children with the idea that they can pick their gender amounts to child abuse.
They are urging legislators and educators to reject all policies that would condition children to accept chemical and surgical distortions allowing people to impersonate the opposite sex. Continue reading
Evil takes on a plethora of forms in our everyday lives. It can be the ultimate evil as in the devil incarnate (i.e.: murderers and rapists), or the banality of evil such as simple courtesies falling by the wayside (i.e.: not holding the door for the person behind you). I have discussed how any person can be turned into an authoritarian tyrant given the proper situational circumstances. The true nature of humans is one of self-interest, a “how will this action benefit me in the long run?” attitude. How has the progressive movement made evil a common occurrence? Lack of morality, ethics, and the inability to determine what is a valued life; and what is viewed a mere inconvenience, to be removed, much like a dermatological imperfection. Continue reading
