Mr Booker and the hearing with DHS sec Nelson

An open letter to Senator Booker;

Sir while watching the hearing With the Sec DHS you embarrassed the great state of New Jersey with your conduct. While you did show your party affiliation and your siding with Sen Durban, You have embarrassed the state in your diatribe.

@senbooker you were not at all satisfied with the Secretaries answers and called her a bold faced lyer all over something the President may or may not have said. This whole issue of that word has been over stretched and worn out. It is not worth your time and feigned outrage. You were in a hearing that dealt with a broad number of matters and you decided to waste your time on an issue that was asked and answered numerous times in that very hearing.  I would suggest next time your efforts would be better spent on matters that actually matter.

If you are going to represent this great state, PLEASE represent it in the decorum that you would demand of any other senator. You sir are an embarrassment to this state.

Thank You

Sessions and pot

sitting here thinking about the repercussions of sessions retracting the memo on pot and here are my thoughts.

While the federal government has redacted the memo saying they wont prosecute pot industries, I am thinking there will be a few repercussions, but that it will live. there is the definite issue of states rights here. That will be what maintains the pot industry in the states that have chosen this. However, This is what can happen(and most likely will).

The feds will stop all use of interstate banks by the industry. They will enforce the fed drug laws on federal property. They will go after those that do interstate drug trafficking. (iow : you buy it in colo. and go to the next state, your busted.) There is the possibility that they might go after the stores due to them having t0 pay federal income taxes (long shot, but).

This will create some problems.  But I really cant see them shutting down the distributors if they are following state laws . There will be about a year of lawsuits and stuff till this all gets straight (no pun intended).

This may also be a good test of states rights for the future. We will see.

Mr Trump’s foreign policy

I had a thought.(rut roh).

What if, just what if, Mr trump is in the vain of JFK? (best willis voice, what you talkin about?) well, what if after all these years of the administrations doing things a “certain way” in the area of foreign policy that has not really been working, Mr Trump has gone a different way that will work better?

Think about it, during the whole cuba crisis thing, everyone were against the way JFK was doing things because they didn’t understand what he was trying to do. Now during all these problems that the standard routines just weren’t working Mr Trump has got an idea that doing it in a different way will make it work? Is he not sending messages to our enemies? (that he can back up). are they not responding in ways that are different? the standard way of sanctioning and all that are just not working.  So the missile boy says hes got a button, after the limited testing he has done while puffing his chest out, Mr Trump comes along and says yea well I’ve got one too, but mine works to put the little boy in his place.

Should we just let Trump be Trump? And see if Mr Trump is smarter than everyone thinks? what if?

Daca Proposal

Dear Sir:

In light of the Problem created by Mr Obama during his presidency on the Immigration Of unlawful children by their parents, I have a proposal for a bill to help the situation.

I have run this by a Facebook forum or 2 and while the general attitude was we don’t care send them all back, I have not received any negative comments on the proposal itself.

Proposal; on Daca: Since Daca stands for deferred action for child arrivals, and the program is ending, And former President Obama has created a legal nightmare with this program, I propose the following solution to be voted on by congress.

The DACA children are given 1 year after their 18th birthday to apply to the INS for a limited citizenship(non-voting).

If the alien is older than 18 at the time of this bill they have 1 year to apply to the INS for a limited citizenship(non-voting). .

Any alien that does not apply will be deported.

If that alien has served in the military for a minimum of 2 years they will be granted full citizenship upon approval of the INS. (they have proven that they do care for this country by offering up their lives)

The Only people that are eligible are those that have/had signed up for the DACA program before March of 2018.

There will be no chain migration allowed.

The parents are not eligible for this program and are subject to deportation.

on SALT and the tax bill

I know this will go nowhere, but as I sit here listening to the talking heads, I had a thought.

In looking at what SALT, (state and local tax )deduction does,  it is basically no more than a backdoor way for the feds  to pay the state .just look at how it works,  you pay your state and local taxes,  then at the end of the year you deduct them off your federal bill .

I have a much better idea,  instead of having all that paperwork to deduct  money that the federal government is going to give the state,  why not just have the federal government go and pay the state direct ? This would have the effect of cutting down on paperwork maybe even get the tax form down to a postcard. Wouldn’t that be a much better way of doing things? But then again that may expose the state for all the excess taxes it gets.

To the Dems on the tax reform bill

As I sit here looking at some of the posts about the tax reform bill, There is something that strikes me as funny. I listened to all the attacks from the left on it and found that they were talking out both sides of their butt.

You see, you can’t both say you haven’t read a thing, and in the next sentence say that that thing is bad because. you say that you didn’t have time to read it because it came on the floor almost straight from committee, and yet you say it will do all these bad things. How do you know? Just the fact that you are using both fights in almost the same sentence makes your arguments null and void. Either you read it and found all this, Or you didn’t read it and you don’t know.  You cant have it both ways.

I know the Democrats had people on the committee to where they could, and did ask for changes. then there was the public posting of the bill, then there was how many days of debate? And how did you know about the amendments? they were posted and you read them.  Yet in all the debates on the floor, there was very little mentioned about most of what was in the text of the bill. What I saw most was about 1 line that took away the individual mandate. Does that mean you actually like most of what’s in the bill?? And that if it was your President you would have voted for it? Come on, get your debating right. Either you are against it because there are bad things in it, or you are against it because you didn’t take the time to read it. I am pretty sure based on the complaints that I have heard, you or your staffers have read the bill,  So you are not allowed to use that defense. And to those that believe any of the bovine scattia that came from that floor of congress, start to use your brain.

Glenn

She said he did what?

Hard to think that in this day and age we could get this low. After watching a bunch of news feeds,  is it true that we have turned from the nation we are supposed to be? A nation that would allow an allegation to be considered true before the facts are in? Since when? We have all been seeing the allegations against numerous men that they somehow are sexual deviants. And most of these allegations there is no proof to back them up.  Yet the men are being treated as if they, without proof, have commited the most hienious of acts,  and being treated as lepers.

How could this be? Aren’t we supposed to be the nation that says you are innocent until proven guilty? Absent an admission, where is the proof so far? What have these men done to be so boldly accused and treated in this way? political retribution? Draining the swamp?

And where did this start? Well that I may be able to answer a little, maybe. It would appear this all started with a Washington Post article. (And we all know how reliable they have been as of late). Or is it somehow a further cover up over some allegations (with some proof, albeit questionable) of the Clintons possible sickness of pediofillia? (as some have alleged).

There is a train that says, if your seeing fake outrage at something in the political world, look behind the covers to see what they are really trying to hide. If this is true in this case, what are they trying to hide?

As you can see, I have no answers. Just questions. But like most of you, I too am tired of all the BS from the majors. Show us the real news, not this tabloid stuff. I turn to the news channels to see NEWS, not the enquirer. And unless they admit to the crime, Let us not damn to hell the men that are being accused.  Let us return to the nation that says, ok we need proof of guilt before we do something. Not just some person that has possibly been paid to say something.

NJ’s Phil Murphy Can we vote for him?

Hi folks:

I have been seeing a lot of the ads both on tv and in the press about Phil Murphy. A few things stick out in my reading of the guy. He appears to tow the radical left’s side of the road in his ads..  Can we actually vote for a guy that would go against the US Constitution? One of his ideas is to gut the 2nd amendment. Yes that’s right, He wants to take this state, which already is one of the hardest in the nation to get a gun permit in and actually make it unlawful for you to own a gun, by restricting the gun and its components. (btw: none of these restrictions would have stopped any of the things that they are using to justify the restrictions.)

Then he wants to bypass the Federal government (which is ok, IF it is not in the constitution, This unfortunately for him is) by making us a “sanctuary state”. What does that mean? I am glad you asked. What that means is to let a person that has already broken the law by coming over the border unlawfully, that has now broken a state or other law (robbed someone for instance?) that got put in a NJ jail, Avoid federal prosecution by not notifying the federal government (that is actually in charge of immigration) or even going so far as to not holding a prisoner that ICE has put a detainer on.  Thus releasing that prisoner back on the streets to commit another crime and disappear into cracks of the streets.

I have not had a chance as of this writing to look at his plans for the state’s budget yet, but if the way the rest looks, I can be sure it won’t be something that I think would work for this state.

Me? After seeing this much, I know I can’t in good conscience vote for him. I am sorry. If you are going to take an oath that says you will follow the US and the NJ constitutions, and then the minute you are sworn in violate those, How am I to trust you?

On Vegas and personal freedom

We live in a great country. A country based on of all things, freedom. But why is it, when there is a terrible annomoly such as the Vegas shooting there are people that are not only willing, but who actually  call for the taking away of our precious freedoms. Without knowing anything, just minutes after this attack, there were people and politicians calling for more gun control. And just this morning I was hearing even worse, that there are some calling for hotels to institute the same level of security as the airports (which I am not sure I agree with) of searching your baggage as you enter the hotel.

How can we, as a nation that is based on freedom, simply allow such loss of freedom and dignity? A knee jerk reaction is not what is needed. What is needed? find out the 5 w’s that every jourlnalist is supposed to find. We know a couple the who, what, when and where. but at this point we do not know the why or the how. With out knowing these, how can we know what we should do, if anything, next?

What I say we do, pray for the living and the dead, help those we can, and find out all the facts we can. Let us heal the nation and those injured. Let us bury the dead and grieve. Let us find the truth about this sad event. Then once that is done we might be able to find what is needed, If anything.

Let us pray :
Almighty Father whose mercy is deep, show us your tenderness and show us the way of the light from this darkness. Please comfort all those that are suffering, and take those angels into your bosom.
In the name of the Father , the Son and the Holy Ghost
Amen

DPRK To Bomb USA

DPRK To Bomb USA

Today at the UN the representative for the DPRK said Mr Trumps words at the UN make it necessary for the DPRK to Bomb the US. the wreckless words of Mr Trump have made the irreversible mistake of making our rockets visit to the entire US mainland inevitable

"None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission."Moments ago at the United Nations, North Korea's Foreign Minister assailed President Donald J. Trump, warning that the American leader had made an "irreversible mistake." http://fxn.ws/2wdZxis

Possible DACA deal?

With all the thoughts on DACA, here is a possible deal that might be made. (I am not backing this deal, but it is a thought).

Mr Trump gets his border wall, and we do a Reagan style one shot deal on “the dreamers”. the way it would go is that legislation would be put in that would end anchor babies, If an illegal has a kid here they are the citizen of the country of the mom. that takes care of 2 big ticket items, and gets that many more off the roles . Congress is already setting immigration limits , so we follow those, maybe increase them a little.

Now for the part a lot including me aren’t going to be happy with, but will probably happen. The “dreamers” on DACA get 1 year to gain citizenship. Those in the military would be granted citizenship (they did step up and decided to defend this country for all of us). If the only thing holding them back from gaining citizenship is that they have to leave the country, then we, for this group only, bypass this requirement. After the 1 year, all those “dreamers” that did not get citizenship are immediately deported, as they did not want to be a citizen. This program would only be offered to those that have been here say over 10 years and brought in before they were 12? The rest get deported.

Some have talked about a special permanent visa, One that does not make them a citizen, but would allow them to stay here legally. This would not give them any rights like voting or food stamps or such. This may be a good idea.  This would take care of some of the problem of a gain from an unlawful act.

These are the most probable deals I can see coming from congress. Even these are more than most would like to see to solve this problem, But they are almost acceptable. What say you?

 

Glenn

On DACA

My friends. I sit here trying to come to some coherent thoughts on DACA. I have asked God for his influence, and have thought on this with the little bit that I know about the law. This is what I have come up with:

God does call for us to have compassion and love for our fellow man, and in all his talk the best that I can come up with is that the only place meant to be with out borders is heaven. I remember some of Jesus teachings, like, give unto Caesar that which is Caesars, and that while God’s law is supreme, we also have to follow the laws of man.(no I can’t cite chapter and verse, I am not that good.). Yes he also taught that man’s law should be based on God’s laws. But he did recognize that here on earth among men, men will create the laws to live by.

In some of the laws that were created for this great country, there are laws that specify who can be here, and who can come here.. We have set certain laws like you have to come in to this country invited. DACA parents did not come by invite but rather by stealth and subterfuge. These parents brought their children with them, either not wanting to leave to fend for themselves or to give them a better life than they could have where they were. This they did unlawfully. In other words illegally. Now I am not up on all the judicial precedents, but I do remember one from the 1970’s, In this legal finding the judge said you can not profit from a crime.(I think this was about a book deal someone famous wanted to do).  Following this finding we can only choose, if we are to follow the laws of this land, to say that since the parents committed a crime and you can not profit from it, and since they are profiting from this by being able to live the American dream, that the “dreamers” should not be afforded the life that American can bring.

Now I am not totally heartless. I will say this, IF congress can come up with something that would find a way such as military service, or if the “dreamers” would simply TRY to become legal citizens instead of not caring and being in limbo, then I might be able to go with that. I am questioning why these children that are now adults, have not simply applied for citizenship? Yes if one of the requirements are to leave the country we might be able to waive that, for this one time, for this one group. But it must NOT be put in law that this waiver is gone forever. (there are reasons).

We MUST look closer at what has happened and why. We also must do a lot of thinking and soul searching to find the right way to solve this issue. There are many smarter people than I am(unfortunately not so many in congress) that I await to see their thoughts. No I will not accept the open borders acts, we do have to keep America, America.

Here is a further thought, That since the Executive order was unlawful, anything that results from the unlawful order should be null and void.

So here I still sit. What have I come up with? Very little. What am I expecting? That congress will follow the law, While making the law and not destroy this country. Yes I am in favor of lawful entry, and against unlawful entry and the cascading effects that happen from that.

With GOD’s love do I end this and wish for HIS mercy in what will come. May God bless you and keep you. And may HIS guidance govern the hands of those that will write the laws that hopefully will solve this issue.

Way to go making good bad and bad good

here we go again, another off thought for your consideration.

Was watching tv and the commercial for wicked came on and had a thought. They took the premise of good and evil and are changing it around.

Now good is bad and bad is good. the wicked witch of the west is just a misunderstood woman. And the good witch is now an underhanded woman masquerading as good.

Come on. The changes they are making are making what we know to be all wrong. just another example of the reprogramming of the youth.

KKK support of Mr Trump a Plot?

Hi. Been sitting here thinking(never good) and had a thought.

We have been told that the KKK is a radical democratic group, right? An we all know that most of the media and most of the politicians are against Mr Trump(evidenced by all the twisted news and congressional voting records). What if, just if, to try and discredit the President starting all the way at the election, They all decided, hey let’s try this, let’s do a reverse attack using the KKK on Mr Trump? Yes that’s right a reverse attack, IOW: let the KKK  support him voraciously and then attempt to link Mr Trump to them in any fake way we can.

What would this do? well it might erode his base thinking no sane non racist person would affiliate with the KKK. We must withdrawl our support. And even when denounced by Mr Trump a favorable statement from Mr Duke will keep it going.

How can I say this? well I am seeing the many denouncements from Mr Trump about the KKK. Yet even when he does it seems the media finds some way to twist it to him supporting them.  ex: Saturday he denounced many groups in the protest. they said he didn’t denounce the kkk.  Ok so at the time of the speech he says he didn’t have all the information in. Then on Monday he strongly denounced them. The media still wasn’t happy. said it was too late. ughhh. then on Tuesday after he had gotten all the information in from his sources, he denounced them and other groups that apparently the msm and congress likes.(anti-fa, blm,…. ). that led to such a brouhaha in the media they blew their minds. I mean he actually put down their groups as a hate group. and then Mr duke posted a message in defense of the President and salvaged their narrative.

There’s a couple things the media keeps trying to blame him for. That there were many fine people on both sides, remark. if you listen to it he said that were not involved in the violence, which he later clarified to be not with either group but there to protest the removal of the statue. And then there’s the point that he actually had the temerity to support the first amendment rights of a hate group. Yes that’s right, hate speech is actually a protected first amendment right. So he was defending the constitution. weird huh? with that remark the media et al. decided that meant he was defending the KKK and therefore must be in bed with them.

I have watched his speeches and his tweets and no where in them can I find anything other than support of the constitution. Since when is it racist to support and defend the constitution? Do I Like either of the sides involved in that fracas? No. IMO they are all hate groups and deserve none of my support. Do I support and defend the constitution? yes to the best of my ability. Do I think that there was wrong on all sides and corruption in the way the politicians in local and state government handled this? A big yes. And yes I think they will all still, no matter what he says, try to hang that banner on Mr Trump. After all, he is not the anointed one that the msm and politicians wanted. yep, he does things a bit different. and that’s why we elected him. We simply did not want yet another politician in that office.

Glenn

Mr Trumps speeches

Hi All;

I think I know one small problem that the left has so much trouble with. I think like myself and many others Mr Trump either has a case of add or adhd. This would account for the way he talks in public. He knows what he wants to say, but fails to get his point out the way the left can understand because his mind is racing and onto many other subject while he is talking. Mr Trump is not a good public speaker, but, some like me can understand what he meant cause our minds are racing too.

For example his last speech at the presser.  He said there were many fine people there protesting. his mind raced and he forgot to say that They were not affiliated with either group. IMO: ADD would explain his bad public speaking. He has so much to say that while he is saying it his mind has gone on to the next part. speech to him is too slow for the mind to concentrate on. I admit I am not a great writer of my thoughts, due to the same problem. I mean typing is way too slow even at about 100 wpm. I loose track of what I want to say too fast. This appears to happen to the President too.

So next time you want to admonish the President for something he said. Look at what he was trying to say, not what he may have skipped in what he was saying. Look for the context. Yes the struggle is real for us that have this minor problem. But that’s ok, we will eventually get our message across. Maybe not as well as some but, we will get it across.

BTW: it took me 20 minutes to write this out and I know it is not well said.

Glenn

I am tired.

I am tired.

I have been watching since Saturday all the info about Charlettesville. I have been watching as the media has gotten outraged with statements that Mr Trump has made that didn’t come up to their standards. In their zeal to take anything the President says and make it go against him because they don’t like that he was elected, They have torn apart and taken out of context everything he has said.

Today was yet another example.

I am hearing from the exploding heads that because he denigrated BOTH sides he legitimized the Nazi’s. Really? Lets take what he said. He said there was violence from both sides. He said that there was a very bad group on one side(white supremacists) and a very violent group on the other (anti-fa). He said that the alt left didn’t have a permit(true)(the alt right did obtain a permit for their demonstration). He said there were people on both sides that were fine(not affiliated with alt right or alt left) that were there to protest the statue.

Somehow because he didn’t have tin fact on Saturday he is to blame for not immediately putting down the alt right before he got the facts. on Monday he read a speech that put down the alt right and it still wasn’t good enough after getting all the information. Now because he dared to tell the truth and blame both sides on Tues. he is now a Nazi?

So yeah I am tired of trying to bring what is the truth to the uninformed that rely on the media to push a narrative of hate. As I watch the actual events unfold instead of waiting for the approved soundbite from the media I guess I will grow even more tired.

My thoughts on The Charlettesville protest

I am sitting here watching the news and facebook posts and twitter feeds, And I am noticing something. What I have noticed is that EVERYONE is saying that it was all the white supremacists fault for Va.. With NO mention of the ALT lefts participation and incitement in this situation.

As I sit here, there are all the complaints that the President failed to denounce the white supremacists. In fact he did that and more, he denounced both sides. If the President would have called out just the one side as most are lamenting he didn’t, then that would have legitimized the other side. I got a clue from the news that most of this is all stemming from a failed cnn attempt to link Mr Trump to the kkk during the election.

Lets go thru the facts as I have seen them with out taking any sides.

A right wing group gets a permit for a demonstration against taking down a statue, thus removing history from our sight. The left gets a whiff of it, says hey we can’t have them shutting down our attempt to change history. So they organize a counter demonstration without a permit. the right gets wind of this, says ok, if there is going to be trouble lets go armed for it.

Day of protest, the governor pulls the permit (not sure of this). both groups show up. The right is told to go home. the left – nothing. The right starts going and the left starts a fight? The cops are told not to interfere?

There were a couple of times that a different action would have kept this from becoming the national talk as it is now. If the left didn’t show up, no one really would have heard anything about the protest, it wouldn’t be on the news. If the cops had kept the sides apart and maintained the rights of the group with the permit….. . Well you get the idea, there were many opertunities for the mayor, govenor et al: to keep this from going national.

Go forward to the next day. Guy goes to talk to the press, left shows up creating such a situation that the cops have to escort the guy away. Thus shutting down free speech.

In all this I do not support either side. But remind you of a famous saying that I will mess up a bit.

I may not support what you have to say, But I will defend your right to peaceably say it.

 

Charges of Racketeering

after watching how the congress has been acting since the 20th of January, I am wondering if there should be charges of racketeering brought against the Democratic party. It would appear that the leaders of that party have conspired to wreck the country. How is it that NONE of the members of that party have voted for anything? Even with a bill that was designed to be favorable to the Dem party, the best they could all do is vote PRESENT?

This is the first time that I can remember that NO Dems have even voted across party lines. in almost every vote before this year, there have been at least 2 or 3 dems that have voted the other way. Why none now? What does the leadership have on them? What have they threatened them with? Seven months and not a yeah vote from any of them? We all know there are moderate and even conservative dems in the party.  So how could the party get them all to vote the same? Not even a good word for the President being allowed to be said? This is not right. out of almost 150 members not one dissent? Not one word to prop up the country? Just this whole resist thing?

I pray that voters remember what the Dems have attempted to do to this country. Trying to tear it down all due to the fact that their candidate lost the Presidency. They are acting like children.

Mr Trump the Twitter Troll

Is President Trump a troll? This week Mr Trump caused a ruckus thru out the media and social media world with a series of tweets. In those tweets he said that the military would no longer have transgendered people. In exactly what he expected to happen, the medias all blew up. But, The question is, Is a tweet from the President an official order? According to the top brass in the military, no. So while the military awaits the official paperwork saying that Mr Obama’s executive order has been reversed they will do nothing.

Does this mean the military is disregarding a direct order from the commander in chief? maybe, maybe not. Usually a verbal order of this magnitude is followed up by the proper paperwork, And as far as I can tell no such paperwork has been issued. So while the medias all thrash this out and fight, I am going to sit here and laugh that the President with twitter has changed the direction of all the “outrages” in the medias.

Way to go Mr Troll, ummm, Mr Trump.

The President and Russia

Forgive me if I seem ignorant about this. Did we take a wrong turn and end up in the 1950’s? I am trying to figure out what would be so wrong about a businessman doing business with Russia. In this day and age where the Chinese own how much of our debt, we regularly do business with Japan, Germany, Italy and so many more countries (all our former enemy’s), How can doing business with Russia in this day and age where Russia is not at war with us be bad? Or even unlawful? Don’t we do lots of business with the Arabs, most of which we have declared an unofficial war on? (Lots and lots of oil).

What is it about Russia that has the Democrats thinking they are that bad? Oh they are communist. Right. ok. Is that all? Yes I remember the bit about the Ukraine. But what  did  Obama do when the Russians did that. He did NOTHING. So the Dems don’t mind if Russia takes over a small country or 2, as long as they aren’t muslim?

Someone explain to me, Please, how in this day and age, Doing business in Russia is a bad thing. Then maybe I can understand why the left is so concerned about it, if it is other than, any way they can take down the President?

If all it is, is take down the President, then let’s all back the President and show the left for what it is right now. A party that has no direction, has no real evidence of wrong doing, but are acting like a 2 year old that didn’t get their way.

On the other hand if there is a real problem with real evidence and laws were broken, then stop being crybabies and show us the proof and indict already. We are all getting very tired of this circus that has no other road than to block and defame the man holding the highest position of service in this country.
