We Are in a Civil War

When Obama was President, I predicted in one of my blogposts that we were headed for a civil war. Sadly, my prediction has become a reality. The country is no longer able to compromise or debate in a civil  manner. We saw the most recent confirmation hearing of a  new Supreme Court justice as an example of how un-civil we have become. Our last and hopefully only shooting civil war was ugly, and deadly. It should have taught us that an internal conflict is better determined off the battlefield. Perhaps we should create a box out of bullet proof glass and put robots inside. Two of them, one grey and one blue. The rest of us sit and watch as the robots battle to death. The winner’s political ideology rules until the next election after which we redefine the outcome with a robot match. The essay below is one that I posted once before. The author, has made a very logical argument that we are currently in a civil war. His thesis is so true to date that it cannot be refuted.
A speech delivered by Daniel Greenfield (a conservative author whose work can be found in publications such as FrontPageMag.com) at the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention in January 2018: How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.  That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country.  When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it’s not the first time they’ve done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn’t really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There’s a pattern here. What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win. It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.  That’s a civil war. There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government. This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship. The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war. Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that’s not the system that runs this country. The Democrat’s system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country. If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He’s a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can’t do anything. He isn’t even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has ‘discretion’ to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn’t even have the ‘discretion’ to reverse him. That’s how the game is played That’s how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn’t yet won that particular fight. When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren’t even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn’t allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries. The Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it’s Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship. Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds You can’t serve in if you’re not a member. If you haven’t been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren’t in the club. And Trump isn’t in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren’t in the club with him. Now we’re seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down. That’s not a free country. It’s not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump winning the election. It’s not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It’s not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It’s not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn’t supposed to win did. Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

I just read a headline about a moron who claimed the Republican tax plan will be a Republican only fix. Probably because most Democrats don’t pay taxes dummy. How can you benefit from a tax cut if you don’t pay taxes?

Remember When?

clinton-hillary-russia-uranium-FACEBOOK.jpg
Remember when Donald Trump formed a business partnership with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano …..that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as “Putin’s Child?”
           Oh wait, that wasn’t Trump; it was John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow that was paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?
             Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State giving control of it to Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?
            Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
hqdefault-6.jpg
Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn’t a part of approving a deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton
Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the chairman of a company that is part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster;  the wife of the mayor of Moscow and a close pal of Putin’s?
          Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the ‘ “The Cold War is over?”
           Oh wait, that was President Obama.
Man, Trump’s ties to Russia are REALLY “disgusting!”

Elections Have Consequences

I haven’t said too much about this election since the start…but this is how I feel….
  I’m noticing that a lot of people aren’t graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.
  Some are apparently “triggered” because they are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.
  How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
  
You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.
  You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.
  You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
  You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.
  You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created “us” when you attacked our flag

  You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.
  You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.
  You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.
  You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

  You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

  You created “us” the silent majority
  You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
  You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
  You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.

You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

        And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.

  And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
  With ballots, not riots.
  With ballots, not looting.
  With ballots, not blocking traffic.
  With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”
  “YOU” created “US”.
  It really is just that simple.

 

Governor Rauner Speaks Out

RAUNER: DEAR STATE EMPLOYEES, THE TRUTH IS ILLINOIS IS BROKE

6a00d834515c5469e201bb09013132970d.png

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Bruce Rauner penned the following public letter to the state’s employees, explaining his reasoning for vetoing HB 580 Monday:

OPEN LETTER TO STATE EMPLOYEES:

For too many years, Illinoisans have been misled. Each of you in state government has been misled. Taxpayers who fund government have been misled. Recipients of public services, including our most vulnerable residents, have also been misled. The consequences are before us, and they are dire.

I ran for office to right these wrongs. I believe that solving our state’s crisis requires a simple first step – for someone to tell the truth. So here it is.

The truth is that Illinois is broke. Our taxpayers, who pay the highest property taxes in the nation, are maxed out and local governments continue to raise property taxes.

Expanding the size of government faster than middle-class paychecks are growing is a failing strategy. That is why I have no choice but to veto AFSCME’s arbitration bill, HB580.

It’s not because I don’t want to see you earn a better living today. I do. I veto HB580 because I want to protect the pension system that you are counting on for your retirement.

If I signed this bill, I would be subjecting all taxpayers to another $3 billion in higher taxes. That makes no sense when too many jobs have been leaving Illinois, and those hardworking Illinoisans that remain see their incomes falling.

We can make Illinois a state where our employees receive the pension benefits they were promised, where our budget is truly balanced through strong economic growth rather than destructive tax hikes, and where our state workers are not forced to work in decaying buildings with technology that is older than my children and furniture that is older than me.

I pledged on my first day in office to build a partnership with state employees, and that is exactly what we have done. Our 1970s computers are being replaced with next generation technology. With the General Assembly’s help, I pledged to put the Thompson Center up for sale and move employees to more modern space. We pushed for more flexible scheduling and ended Rod Blagojevich’s corrupt hiring system.

When Attorney General Madigan sought to shut off pay, Comptroller Munger and I defeated that misguided attack on state employees. And I have called on the General Assembly to honor Governor Quinn’s failed promise of wage increases from 2011. We must respect our commitments and not make new commitments that we cannot afford.

We also sought employees’ ideas for improvements and savings, prompting us to send out the first-ever state employee survey. The results were eye-opening.

You told me that promotions and compensation are not based on merit. You told me that agencies don’t reward creativity and innovation. I want to reward hard work and ingenuity. Unfortunately, union leadership is blocking many of these common sense ideas – ideas that you want. Rest assured, I heard your desire for these reforms loud and clear.

So my administration took action. We launched a truly meaningful merit pay program. We started a gainsharing program that will reward state employees for helping save taxpayers’ money. We implemented a “rapid results” system that removes obstacles to employee innovation and allows employees to personally change processes that impede good customer service.

But as I have noted, with a truly historic budget deficit and skyrocketing debt, our taxpayers cannot afford the added spending pressure of huge wage and health insurance increases. That is why I must veto HB580, ensuring that the legal process agreed to with AFSCME leaders and currently underway before the Labor Board, is allowed to proceed and fairly resolve any outstanding issues.

But I make this pledge: The State will honor its promises to you. We will continue to listen and build a workplace that values and rewards hard work, innovation, and creativity, all in a welcoming work environment. We will keep fighting to get you paid in full and on time. And we will continue to stand for fiscal discipline so that you and your families can again know you are, finally, being told the truth.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Illinois is broke because it has the most corrupt Democrat government, and has had it for the longest time. State politicians work diligently to get re-elected. Most consider their offices as a profession that belongs to them. Many pass their posts to their children to keep the family business running. They cleverly manipulate State workers with perks and money to insure they help to get them re-elected year after year. Illinois is as close to being a socialist state as one can get. We are an example to the rest of the country. Look at us and ask, do I want to be a tax-slave working to line the pockets of the faithful dominions of elites who are running our state?

All’s Fair In Love and War

Democrats all across America have been buying elections since the party began. They haven’t stopped doing it, nor will they ever stop buying votes. In this case, Bernie Sanders an admitted Socialist proves a valid point, he needs capitalism to win. The election is a commodity like anything, and the candidates are competitors who vie for the commodity, often winning by spending the most.

Most of us know these paid protestors represent a sham, but the angst they provide the media has an effect on voters. Protests of this sort only serve to deny the right of free speech to the protested, clearly a violation of the First Amendment. How will Wisconsin authorities deal with the situation? Most likely they will allow it to happen and the violators will keep Trump from getting his message to the people.

Leave a comment below if you believe these protesters will make an impact on the outcome of the election.
