Le Gestapo Nuevo

Medically speaking, the LGN process everything we see. Politically speaking, the LGN attempts to process everything we see. Different things, same process. Almost.

My point is, that if a small group of people get to control all the news that we see, they will have total control of our thoughts and emotions. There will be no diversity of thought. I think most would agree with the premise.

I think that there should be an equality of treatment for political ideology. For example part of me just wants to be a Buddhist Monk. Silently spinning prayer wheels. Watching the news I see that pastime could possibly lead the children into darkness, then to simply wait for salvation. Funny way to seek perfection.

Back to our politicians, and my choice of words for the title. I see a very severe double standard. I have no problem with investigation, in fact they are necessary. The truth needs to be affirmed.

One candidate, investigated for improper use of a server. The server was never provided to the investigators. Lawyers and staff provided with immunity. The outcome was actually predetermined before the investigation. Evidence was changed to fit the predetermined outcome. Candidate was publicly cleared of all charges before the election.

Other candidate, investigated for improperly accessing the content of his opponents server. The actual contents of the server were never publicly revealed. Although the content another server was leaked. Once again the actual server was never provided to investigators. Once again, evidence was fabricated to fit a predetermined conclusion. Absolutely no immunity allowed,, and Gestapo like tactics were used to investigate. Personal lawyer and campaign manager sitting in jail on totally unrelated charges. The only fault of the investigation was no public declaration of guilt, without any actual evidence.

Guess who won? Unable to win legally with nefarious methods, the LGN has doubled down to the use of hateful rhetoric and violence, in what is hopefully a vain attempt in controlling public opinion. I will testify to the normalization of public harassment, that not only continues. It is getting worse, and being applauded by the majority of the media.

President Trump is wrong, the witch hunt to which he refers is with precedent. Lyndon Baines Johnson enlisted the aid of the CIA to investigate his opponent Barry Goldwater. LBJ knew every move of candidate Barry Goldwater before it happened. As I like to say, it is part of the party’s DNA. It was not a big thing, LBJ won. No investigation needed.

It is fairly obvious that there was a conspiracy involving dozens of people. The FBI, CIA, the Press, and others trying to bring Trump down. A conspiracy orchestrated from the top of the Democrat Party. Besides the fatal mistake of losing the election, it has been very effective. Now it is only fair that if Gestapo like tactics have been used, they should be used to investigate both sides. Turnabout is fair play. Isn’t it?

There are really good people that get involved with the politics of hate. For them, It is my advice to think like a Buddhist lost in a cave. It is the realization that light is precious, for everything else is darkness.

I Really Don’t Care, Do U?

Talk about haughty haute couture. A stereotypical elitist point of view. Yes I am talking about our FLOTUS, and her coat. A number of scenarios swept through my mind. Somebody snuck into her closest and wrote that on her coat, nope way to obvious. Then just because she knows how to speak English, does not mean she knows how to read English. I was wondering if that was plausible when I read that it was a simple $35 coat. Then I understood.

It doesn’t matter what Melania wears, the media will hate it. So she picked a coat that states her opinion. Better yet it only costs $35 bucks. For a common complaint is her clothing costs four or five figures. When asked about her coat, her reply was “It’s just a coat”.

The President added a slightly more informative “She doesn’t care about fake news”

The media claimed or declared that Melania doesn’t care about the children. If I remember correctly she was the one that caused the children to be reunited with their parents. That is where she was going when she wore the coat. Make no mistake children were “incarcerated” under Obama, Bush, Clinton. The southern border has been a problem for a long time. Now the media claims that anyone who wants a border solution is a Nazi. My opinion? If this is the worst thing in the world, as the media describes it to be, we are very well off. Let me recap, people that are engaged in criminal activity are temporarily inconvenienced, and are probably be treated much better now than when they were engaged in criminal activity is the worst thing that is going on according to our media. Did I say that the media claims that anyone disagreeing with them is a Nazi?

So what do I think of that? I agree with Melania, I don’t care. Her actions show that she cares and that is enough for me. Additionally I am sure that all the people tasked with taking care of the children care about the children. It now occurs to me that Melania is capable of rather bold trolling. Sure it cost more money to take care of the kids, but it is good PR.

Sorry, but I find this whole story the funniest thing in politics since the Bernie people threw dollar bills at Hillary. Best $35 dollars spent on a coat in a while. I now understand why Donald married her.

A Belief in God

A belief in God is a personal thing. A person has a right to believe in a god of their choice, or not to believe at all. God comes in many descriptors, or interpretations. My view is that we all have the same God. We just live under different interpretations. Our mere existence is proof of my affirmation of the creator.

One may, or may not make a public affirmation of their God. Or, call for the help of God. Some people frequently invoke the name of God, and other people rarely invoke the name of God. Why do I say this? We say many things, sometimes we say things in sarcasm. Taken out of context, I know some things that I say could be used against me. So when it comes to investigations, words out of context should be examined carefully. Politically using words out of context is all to common.

Recently there has been great importance given to a few words out of many. I am speaking of the text messages of FBI agent Strzok. He is quite prolific texting. I have to wonder if somewhere in his many texts there are alternative words of balance. For when I say something that is a bit drastic, I typically counterbalance the words in an alternative paragraph. I would expect someone to point them out if they existed. Interesting that today the words that define the political landscape invoke the name of God. I must admit that they are a pretty definitive affirmation of belief.

Agent Strzok invokes God’s name to declare that I, and others like me are incapable of reasonable thought, or are of substandard mentality. I am OK with that, as I reserve the right to do the same. Although juvenile, speech is free.

There is a problem when the name of God is invoked to justify the the removal of my legal rights as a citizen. In fact, collusion and obstruction of justice are not justified by any reason to remove anyone’s rights as a citizen.

I have to wonder if the proof of God is part of our DNA.

Check Mate

I, and those like me may be amongst the most despised. My thoughts, are said to be the most deplorable of thoughts. My intelligence, I am continually reminded, is sub par. Some of these are things that I may actually agree with.

That being said, President Trump is the leader of a more harmonious world. Are things perfect, no. However historically speaking, yes. Over and over, former antagonists are cooperating for the betterment of the world.

A couple of years ago a number of people asked what is it like to witness the demise of a major political party. I thought I knew the answer when I demurely replied “which party”. However I was wrong, the reality of a lost party is an awful thing. I was unprepared for the reactions. The agony of of snowflakes melting into a muddy reality. A media obsessed with the avoidance of the truth. Politicians unconcerned about those they serve. Such things expose the ugly DNA of a party in demise.

Of course the party isn’t over yet. There is still an election or two to go. If I am wrong I will be more than happy to issue a Mea Culpa. Something some folks are unable to do.

I am not the best at chess, I am just reading the writing on the wall.

The Stormy and Dark Knight

As much as I would like to ignore the background noise of politics I cannot escape hearing about Trump’s Stormy Knight. What a waste of time. Talk about hair brained nincompoop ideas for news stories.

For once upon a time a self proclaimed king, and a self proclaimed queen had a chance encounter. They exchanged pleasantries and memorialized the the encounter with a digital rendering. Business as usual. Move along.

It is my guess that there may have been a moist moment at the sound of the shutter, a random thought to be saved as an antidote for a latter day. Nothing unusual at all, till the lawyers become involved.  I have no idea why they became involved, but involved they became. Somehow what was an innocent moment become a matter of profit. Seems to be a specialty of the law trade. One lawyer two lawyers, three lawyers, more. As silly as that seems, that was just the beginning. Why should the lawyers have all the fun? Welcome to the media circus. Now the fun has just begun. The money has become exponential, and the truth is nowhere to be found.

With all that is going on in the world, why do people talk about the stormy knight? Random people in random places, I never bring up politics. I just write about it here. Overall life is good, I do not complain. So why do I hear about such an inconsequential moment, and it’s implied meaning?

Was it just the work of a Dark Knight? A Dark Knight that encompassed all that is evil? Hate, corruption, greed, slander. Unfortunately a Dark Knight can ride unimpeded on many paths. Don’t let him ride on yours.

The circle is complete, it was a dark and stormy knight.

Chain Migration?

I really question the wisdom of some of our legislators. I did watch the SOTU last week. What a partisan showcase! I was surprised when the legislators booed when the president stated that he wanted to end chain migration.

Chain migration brings to mind old wooden sailing ships with holds filled with people shackled in chains being brought to a foreign land to be sold into slavery. An actual definition of the word deplorable is brought to mind. Isn’t chain migration what started all these problems?

In today’s age that is not what chain migration is about. From what I understand it is the ability to emigrate by knowing somebody, or better yet being related to someone. So someone can get someone to come in and do the dirty work, or hand over half the benefits. Nothing like slavery at all. Truly it seems to be the union way.

The president wants to replace chain migration with merit biased migration. Whatever. All I really ask is they be able to use a toilet. I really have no interest in the finer points. Other people are going to work out the rules anyway.

Then after the speech Faux News shows a clip of President Bill Clinton saying that he would end chain migration. So President Trump was just restating one of President Clinton’s objectives, and the Dems booed? No wonder the Republicans thought Trump was a Democrat when he ran. He has advocated Democrat goals on multiple occasions,, and they have always opposed their own goals when he expresses them.

So this is what the government shutdown is going to be all about? The party is doomed.

New Hampshire Trees Win With Regulators

I was dismayed to find out that New Hampshire Regulators voted against clean hydroelectric power. True the power would have come from Canada and would be used in Massachusetts. However the power grid is interdependent, and problems and costs in Massachusetts would be reflected here in New Hampshire. A substation in Franklin would have provided New Hampshire with clean electrical energy.

As a believer in electric cars and transportation. It is logical that cheap clean electrical energy would help encourage the transition. The decision against clean inexpensive power saddened me.

Ostensibly the decision was to save trees and tourism. We should practice conservation the regulators say. What we will end up doing is burning more American coal. Nuclear power is being replaced with coal in New England. It is just the way it is. Shuttered coal plants are coming back on line as other forms of energy are legislated away. At least the trees are happy. Coal makes Co2, and trees love Co2. The regulators were right about that.

I am sure the price of electricity will now go up. A vibrant economy is the result of low cost energy. High energy costs are a drag on the economy. I am sure Amazon is looking for a new headquarters someplace other than a place with high energy costs.

In actuality, stupid moves by regulators make the market go down. Look what happened last Thursday. Some regulators don’t like winning, and it shows. Personally I see a direct linkage.
