Political Ping Pong

When Trump was first elected I was happy that he took immediate action to eliminate some of the disastrous Obama executive orders. This week I was not so happy to see Biden doing the same thing as Trump, but in reverse. What really got me wondering though was who prepared all of those executive order portfolio’s that Biden signed? Surely, they were not done in the hour or so of his presidency. They had to be done ahead of time. If so, who did them? Were they part of the Trump White House staff, or were they in the underground Shadow Government? Either way, I’m sure they broke a few laws in preparing all those orders in advance for Biden’s signature. Maybe Obama did it himself. He would know the most about which one of his decrees were most valuable to his cause. Having spent eight years in the White House he would also know how to get these things done.

So the game has begun, and I am feverishly awaiting the news about how Biden will handle COVID-19 after promising that he would do a better job than Trump did. So far, with less than a week into it, he hasn’t shown me that his miracle will happen.

With all the double talk about unification of the parties and all, I suppose it will begin after they impeach a US citizen for having had the bad sense of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Had he been in the right place on January sixth, like on the golf course, he wouldn’t be in the pickle he is in now. At least Obama did spend an inordinate amount of time on the golf course and avoided two things: 1, By playing bad golf he avoided work thus he avoided getting into trouble, 2. The press was so enamored with his game that they forgot to challenge him on his dumb moves, like building cages to hold little kids who wandered across the border.

I can hardly wait to see how Biden will handle China. No doubt China will challenge him on several fronts just to see what they can get away with. Like giving Iran a nuke, or sneaking another man-made island into the China Sea to plant missiles in our direction, or buddying up with Venezuela and Cuba just to get into our half of the planet. Maybe they’ll release COVID-21 to sink us into oblivion. Who knows what the evil mind can dream up when it is on a roll, and unchallenged by anyone?

In the meantime, I recommend that Biden stay away from playing ping pong with the Chinese as they are very proficient at the game.

The Sequel to 1776

Six years ago I began writing a book in the alternate history genre. The theme is based on patriots losing the Revolution in 1776 and not gaining independence from Britain. I stopped at 80,000 words because I didn’t know how to end the story. One way would have left me open to continue writing several more books on the story. Another way was to end it abruptly thus dashing the dreams and aspirations of all the characters in the story. This last week’s attempt by we the people to make ourselves heard by the Congress have signaled how the latter ending would turn out.

In analyzing the events leading up to the attack on the Capitol Building I have put together a series of steps that may be the underlying reasons. I will try to list them and rationalize my thinking as I proceed.

  1. In 2016 Democrats speak about impeaching Trump a week before his inauguration. They rejected his legitimacy, and boldly proclaimed that he was not their president.
  2. Democrats, namely Hillary Clinton used a false narrative of Russian collusion in her campaign against Trump. Then, when it failed the Democrats used the Clinton narrative by blaming Trump for said collusion.
  3. Several FBI employees ran a campaign against the President in an attempt to delegitimize his presidency. One of them, Peter Stzrok was fired. As far as I can remember he is the only one who was punished for his actions against the President.
  4. Democrats led an abusive campaign against the confirmation of Brett Cavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
  5. Democrats were slow to react to the President’s actions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and then used his actions against him in the campaign. I’m waiting for Biden’s miracle to stop the spread. God love him, if he does he will be my hero.
  6. The press has conducted a non-stop assault on the president via false narratives in their reporting. Currently, there is talk of social media companies colluding to prevent Parler a Twitter competitor from doing business, proclaiming it is an anti-trust situation. Isn’t this exactly the same thing the news companies did throughout the last five years?
  7. Two years ago, there was a rumble about inconsistencies within our election process, but since there wasn’t a major candidate running, nothing was done.
  8. Democrats desperate to eliminate Trump proceeded with an impeachment proceeding on a the basis of minuscule phone call with a newly elected Ukrainian leader. During this proceeding they used all manner of debate to sway members of Congress and public opinion. Thankfully, the arguments failed.
  9. COVID-19 made people wonder how they could vote with the need to social distance, to wear masks, and to avoid crowds. A new election process was quickly implemented in many states. All of them ignored their own laws dictating how the process can be changed. Aren’t we a Nation of Laws? The vote by mail system was proposed and implemented illegally against the recommendations of the President and millions of voters.
  10. During the election and the counting process numerous infractions and violations were reported by the election judges. Coincidentally, most infractions were in four states that Trump needed to win. Thousands of election judges filed sworn statements of their observations of illegal actions. Every challenge against the validity of the count was ruefully dismissed by democrat judges. They didn’t offer any valid reason for their decision. They did claim that there wasn’t enough fraud to make a difference in the outcome. Since when does fraud have an allowable limit? Isn’t any infraction of the law to be met with equal judicial concern? This inaction by the courts and States involved were a thorn in the side of most voters, but the courts did not give a hoots-ass about examining or investigating the process.
  11. Finally, the election arrived in the Senate for the official count to declare a winner. In the course of history, there have been challenges to the accuracy of the Electoral College results. This time was to be no different, Several Senators declared they would challenge the votes of several states. To my knowledge only Senator Cruz made such a challenge before hell broke loose.
  12. It is my contention that had the Senate given the challengers some time to debate as is the custom the invasion may have been avoided. All they would have had to do is to listen to the arguments and then decide whether it made sense to allow the electoral votes to be counted. The Senate did not act that way. Instead they chose to ignore the challenge and to impeach the President for inciting a riot.

I stopped at twelve because my feeble old brain is nearing exhaustion. There are scores more reasons why we the people have witnessed a committed, organized, planned take down of a legally elected president of the United States. I guess these reasons are called politics.

If there is any one theme throughout this scenario it has been to avoid listening to the other side. The Congress was designed to allow dispute to be settled civilly using debate as the tool for convincing the sides how to make up their minds to what is best for the country.

I suspect that the process has evolved from using civil debate and sound arguments as a method to the twenty-first century method of using polls and media to sway public opinion. What seems to be most important to the Congress is not what is best for the country but what is best for their re-election prospects.

In the beginning of this I wrote about the dilemma of my unfinished book. In my story, the British American Colonists are on the rise and trying to secede from British rule. The colonists are ill equipped, and undermanned, but determined to stand up to the mighty British Empire in North America. The easiest end to write will be to put down the uprising in a manner similar to what happened last week. Except, I would make it a whole lot bloodier with many bodies left dead on the battlefield.

Lynch Mob = U.S. Congress

Most likely I will receive some pretty harsh criticism for expressing my views here today, but since I last checked my First Amendment right to freedom of speech is still in effect. Last week, I watched in horror as a mob of protesters stormed the US Capital building for what purpose we don’t know, and maybe we will never know. All I saw was an action that would destroy the legacy of one of the greatest president’s we have had since Ronald Reagan.

What happened fits the definition of a mob lynching. Except, this time it is a white man being lynched for supposedly inciting a riot. His life is not to be taken literally as in an actual lynching, except his political, and career-life is being destroyed under the pretext of service to justice.

A lynching is a killing by a mob of people. The NAACP later agreed that for a killing to qualify as a lynching, the killers had to act under pretext of service to justice, their race or tradition. …

The rush to impeach the President is nothing short of a hate crime being perpetrated upon the victim. Since his own inauguration one year ago, the Washington mob has been working overtime to destroy the man and his presidency. The Speaker of the House has very openly expressed a desire to bring the man down. The speedy action being taken by the world to condemn Trump is without a grand jury, trial by peers, and a jury verdict. Where is the man’s Fifth & Sixth Amendment right to process. All these people want is to destroy the man.

Maybe I am looking at this myopically, but I cannot fathom why Trump and his followers provoke so much hatred by the Democrats, Never Trumpers, and the Press. Only one thing justifies such hatred, Donald Trump shut off a good thing. First of all, he invented and liberally used the term Swamp to define the layers of bureaucracy that permeate our system. His attitude toward the Swamp was one of elimination, not promotion. The US Government budget exceeds trillions of dollars, and most of our Congressmen are in it to get a piece of that pie. I also truly believe that the many bureaucracies working within the Departments also skim from the trillion dollar pie. Can I prove that, no, but I cannot prove mass dishonesty within the voting system either, but I am not totally deaf yet, and I hear things going on. Former Chicago Democrat mayor Richard J Daley promoted “machine politics” and looked upon the graft as good for the community. Every big city in the country now practices machine politics and uses the city budgets to promote graft. Look at the condition of the cities, all of them are blighted, murder capitals, while the City Councilmen are living the high life to the detriment of citizens.

In days of yore the lynch mob did not check to see if they were right or wrong, they acted. Often they hung a person who was not guilty of any crime. The problem with that kind of justice is that it cannot give a person’s life back. In the case of President Trump, his professional life is most likely already destroyed no matter whether the Congress impeaches him or not. The speed with which all his enemies have gone to denounce him has registered across the world. Most likely, he will die a pauper impeached, or not. What the Democrats fear the most is that we the people will re-elect him if he is given another chance. They must slay the dragon, or it will rise again to eat the slayer.

The Congress highlighted their hypocrisy during this event. Throughout the summer of 2020 when western cities were being burned by protestors, and policemen killed, the Congress had it’s head stuck in the sand with it’s ass standing tall mooning us. During last week’s protest turned riotous it is different, because it was the Congress whose house was threatened, it was the Congressmen who had to hide from harm, it was personal. Of course they all shamelessly cowered behind the curtain of harm to our Republic, but I know, and you know that this time it was their own ass in jeopardy.

The game of politics is ruthless and brutal. It is no longer a debating forum where the power of debate arguments convince the legislature to vote for or against a law. Politics has evolved into a win or lose game that will be the ultimate downfall of our Republic.

God Bless America

Its been a couple of days since the storming of the Capitol building, and I am now just beginning to ooze down off the ceiling. If ever there was a stupid thing to do, that was it. The rioters played right into the hands of the Democrats and gave them a giant gift. They have been relentlessly trying to destroy President Trump since 2016 without success, and now they are nailing his coffin shut, maybe.

The left must kill him, and then fill his lifeless body with unnecessary lead to make sure he is dead. Why? Because he is the embodiment of what the right side of the country feels, believes, and prays for. I cringed when I saw the film of the crowd takeover and the damage they inflicted, but at the same time, inwardly my soul cheered them on. What surprised me the most was how unprepared the Capital is for such an event.

Immediately, two things came to mind. First, I truly believe there was an outside leftist squadron of people who breeched the defenses. Second, this was a trailer for how a real government takeover might begin. The biggest problem I see is that the people who are most responsible for this event don’t see how they are implicated. Or, they don’t want to believe they can be implicated. They are too high in office and above the common man to be implicated.

The people who protested that day are all frustrated by the lack of attention given to the myriad of evidence pointing toward election abuse. The Senate, the Congress, and Judicial all refused to give the matter any weight whatsoever. I too, am frustrated with how easy it is to conduct rigged elections in ways that no one can recognize the extent of the problem. I have written about my thoughts on using electronic voting machines. If anything is prone to being rigged to swing votes one way or the other a computer is it. There are also very many computer savvy people in the world who can perform such internal programming.

President Trump made a grand play at trying to use the system to highlight where the problems lie. Our country full of extreme Leftists is against him and could smell blood when the election results swung their way. It was essentially one man against the entire government. My frustration lies with the imbecilic administrators and lawmakers who rejected every attempt to listen to, or give hearing to the many accusations of wrong doing. The worst argument I heard was that the number of wrongly cast ballots was not enough to affect the outcome. Just how much wrong is right? When do we begin to use the amount of wrong as a line of demarcation? We are a nation of laws, but let’s just change election laws by ignoring the law written to define how to run elections.

The left has habitually been pushing the line to ease the burden of punishment on perpetrators rather than do the work of changing the laws to meet the same end result. Let us abolish the death sentance because the murderer didn’t mean to kill the victim, let’s not jail drug abusers as a way to cure their disease, let’s invent ways to keep from sending abusers to prison and to change their behavior instead, let’s remove God from all things so our kids can grow up and choose God for themselves. Let’s hide all examples of the ten commandments from public view, the list goes on endlessly. In the meantime the population gets more and more lawless and behaves with less morality.

I refuse to watch news programs any more because all I hear is an endless barrage of negative accusations against a man I believe will go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. True, his speech at the gathering of the crowd might be construed as an incitement to angry protest. What I don’t understand is why so few people broke into the Capitol building when the reports are that tens of thousands of people were assembled. No amount of Capitol police, or even the National Guard could overcome a charge of that many attackers. What does make sense to me is that an ANTIFA like organization was present at the head of the group and then ambushed a peaceful protest and turned it into a media circus. Of course the anti-Trump press was present in copious numbers itching and ready to record all for the world to witness.

If one message is sent to our government leaders it should be this, you deliberately sidestepped a giant mis-justice in the election which upset half of the country, and as a result to become, distrustful, and frustrated by your lack of stomach to do your job. All it would have taken to keep this terrible incident from occurring was at least one challenge that would have resulted in a recount, or an investigation. You are famous for doing investigations, why not one that the country believes should be done? Your hatred for President Donald Trump is the only reason for not doing so. That is not a valid reason for shirking your duty. My job, by the way, is to make sure that I use every sinew of my aged body to make certain you are never elected into a position of authority again. I promise I will come after you beginning with one Adam Kinzinger whom I trusted implicitly from the very first time I met him, and marked him as a patriot. His true colors have been exposed and he is no different than the money grubbing representatives and senators we call our leaders.

God Bless America, we need His help more than ever.

Manual vs Automated

Last week I read a short article about a forensic investigation on a voting machine used in one of the battleground states. There was one word in the piece that disturbed me to the point of losing sleep, i.e. algorithm. Somehow the word algorithm flies in the face of the performance of a voting machine. I’m sure there is a very good reason for using algorithms in such a device, but I sure as hell can’t understand it.

As an engineer who dealt with designing machines most of his life my design would have had a very simple function, count and add. I am sure the two words are redundant since counting is a form of adding. So let’s just say I would have designed the voting machine to do one thing, count. Of course there would be multiple counters inside, one for each candidate being voted for. If I wanted to doll it up and charge more money for my design I would have added a total count summary for each candidate, and a simple feature to compare the votes of competing candidates with a highlight on the candidate with the most votes. End of design. Not a single algorithm is needed or used. I suppose to determine the winners an algorithm could be used.

What is an algorithm? A set of instructions. Here is an excerpt from an article explaining algorithms

” An algorithm, for the non-programmers among us, is a set of instructions that take an input, A, and provide an output, B, that changes the data involved in some way. Algorithms have a wide variety of applications. In math, they can help calculate functions from points in a data set, among much more advanced things. Aside from their use in programming itself, they play major roles in things like file compression and data encryption.. Still confused, I am too, so let me explain it another way like graphically.

Notice that all the questions in the boxes have two possible responses, yes or no. Each response takes you to another branch with a new question, and the same possible responses, yes or no. This goes on until the question is answered or until one gets bored and walks away from the conversation. Facebook and Twitter use very complicated algorithms to screen your activity on their websites.

If you are still confused, then ask yourself if your Local Congressman has the brains to figure it out? If he can, he is probably configuring the algorithm to win the election without getting any votes at all.

What confuses me is why anyone would want to ask questions internally in a voting machine when the original question is answered very simply as yes or no. In fact, in voting you only answer yes to the candidate you select, and ignore the one you don’t want. Your vote then goes to a tally counter to keep count. At the end the counters display the number of votes each candidate received and after that it is a matter of comparing the number of votes to decide the winner. That comparison can be handled by an algorithm. So I guess I would have to use an algorithm in my design. Any other form of algorithm used has to make assumptions which are input by the machine owner. These assumptions may be used to cheat like hell and to steal elections. There has been a lot of conjecture on the part of some politicians that these machines are responsible for electing Hugo Chavez and Nicolás Maduro, his successor, into office in Venezuela.

In my opinion there is no place for algorithms in a voting machine. We have too many elected officials in place to handle the counting process. How simple would it be to have them read and record the counters in any machine that counts votes?

Machine voting is only one complication in the voting system. COVID-19 caused our brainy Congressional leaders to invent a new scheme for voting. They seemed to have a problem with people coming in to vote under the age old polling place system. Too many people will be in one place and spreading the virus they said. It is much better to vote by mail. If I had to choose voting by mail, I would take voting on a reliable certified algorithm free voting machine over the current vote by mail system. My reason for choosing the machine over the current manual mail system will be the source of separate post.
