How False Narratives Lead to Violence

It is the truth that sets us free.  False narratives take us down a wicked road  to hell.

Have we reached a point where some Americans are now using violence to enforce their point of view? Where did this idea come from that it is OK  to kill off duly elected leaders?. Blink three times; are we living in some kind of Banana Republic; have we gone so far down the wicked road to hell back to where “might is right”; as in the times of the kings of old? We fought and won that battle in 1775-1783 but it seems we are back to fighting it again.

Of some grave concern is the response from Main Stream Media and the LEFT to this normalization of violence?

A question we have to ask , are we following some Lenin playbook given to us by unpatiriotic global forces, and global elites that do not love America?

No Lefties, Donald Trump and the GOP is not your enemy.
Look a little deeper for the enemy has never changed.
If you are patriotic we are on the same page.

We love America and we put our country first.

False Narrative #One: America is a Democracy – False
America is a Constitutional Republic

election-2016

 

Yes it is true that our constitution at the time of its inception, was muddied by corrupt slave owners, yet contrary to partisan politics we have actually cleaned house, amended the constitution to include everybody and moved beyond bigotry.. The reason America became a Super Power is because our system of government IS UNIQUE; it is a brilliant system that rejects the “Might is Right” of the kings of old and is different from any other political constitution in the world. We allow our elected representative to govern ONLY with the consent of the governed. We are a nation rich in the heritage of LIBERTY.

America in 2016 rejected  “Might is Right” in favor of rule of law, balance of power, consent of the governed and a rich history of freedom.

In a Constitutional Republic the Executive is equal but not greater than Congress, equal but not greater than the Courts and in the final analysis all three are policed by the people.

We support the system (and our elected leaders) because that is who we are, American.

 

False Narrative #Two
The GOP is bad, Trump is a monster and this justifies violence – False

trumphornssepia

Once upon a time political discourse was about ideas. Now we have identity politics. With low information voters unable to grasp the ideas on which this country was founded, they vote for those who give the better benefits.

Then, too, behind the scenes political consultants are trying to game the outcome.

This began when Karl Rove encouraged by H.W Bush invented the NEGATIVE ATTACK AD. Way back in Bush-Daddy-Days (1993-1998) Karl Rove invented and perfected the negative attack ad.  It is this political attack ad that has created a toxic, fearful & divisive political climate in Washington.  The idea of the negative attack is to define your opponent as bad, before he is able to get to your weaknesses. While the attack ad was evolving it was played out a lot with half-truths. Political consultants would take a small piece of truth and spin it,  the lie deriving its power from the altered truth. We see this in the Russian narrative. The attack ad is now politics as usual.   High paid political consultants call it a science. It’s not. However they do have a bucket full of very dirty tricks. One dirty trick is to  repeat a lie often enough and they believe it then becomes true. Is this why they beat the false Russian narrative to death? Boring!!!!

Tell you something, it isn’t working and this is why:

Useful Idiot
People are not all the same, they think differently so you have to talk to each one directly, the collective message is way out of touch – why rallies and social media works. Television and Main Stream Media is dying.


2016 the “Forgotten Middle Man” found a new leader and a Movement was Born

Over the last eight years the idle rich have used the idle poor to steal from the hardworking man in the middle.

Low information voters get their information, not through study, not through research on the web but from Main Stream Media. Main Stream Media is oppositional, it is in their genes,  and so as a result almost everything the LEFT believes is oppositional. They are against global warming, against the 2nd Amendment, against the unborn, against the military, against American exceptionalism, against immigration reform and tax reform, but most of all they are against Republicans and Trump. This is a fertile climate for Marxists who specialize in demonization of thier opponents.

This violent attack on a lawmaker (Scalise) was going too far, yet it is applauded by MSM and the LEFT.

To change this we will have to get more Americans up to where they can have an individual solution rather than a collective handout.

How can Congress help? There is a simple fix and with their very lives now threatened will Congress have tthe courage to make the necessary changes? In Norway they limit the TV time allowed for political advertising.  Each party is given a slot to make their main points; no time allowed for knocking down political opponents. We should be doing the same thing here in America. Nobody enjoys these negative ads.

Fix the false narrative embraced by the violent LEFT or we lose America.

 

False Narrative # Three
Trump’s Travel Ban is Unconstitutional – False 

inijustrice2

This is the CLASSIC LIE.   You take a datum true within a certain set of circumstances and you transplant it into a totally different set of circumstances and you get the classic lie. 

(Nineth Circuit Court needs to go back to school and restudy Mathematical set theory and how it applies to judicial logic.)

It is true that it is unconstitutional to discriminate on the basis of race or religion WHEN DEALING WITH THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA.  Your set here is the nation. We have evolved to a good point where our laws are now blind to race or religion or gender and this is protected at the highest level in the set that is America by the USA Constitution.

However, know that this is a set that includes ONLY American Citizens.

So what these courts have done is transplant one set of values and rules, and transplanted these into a different set of circumstances. When we are dealing with immigrants and refugees we have a different group, a different set with different rules. The Constitutional protections only apply to  American citizens

In examining who we should let into our country we should always put the safety and the law and order of America first.  Does the immigrant applying for the privilege of joining our citizenry, pose a threat to the American social contract? It is a very good question and it is a question our President has rightly asked.

The Trump travel bans control entry of immigrants from chaotic foreign countries who don’t have a documented history. We have to be able to spot a pattern of prior criminal intent. If there is no documented record we are unable to do this and the immigrant is disqualified not on race, but on his inability to present proper documentation and historical record. Becoming an American is a privilege, not a right and the onus is on the immigrant to provide proper documentation. The immigration authorities are also tasked with askin, is this new potential American able to support self, family and the nation? Americans want partners not parasites.

We are dealing with yet another different set when we look at Refugees. If there is ANY DANGER the refugee will have to go on welfare and become a burden to a state already overburdened with debt, that refugee must be sent home. If there is any danger the refugee will not be able to learn our language and progress at a viable rate in our schools, he must be disqualified. Sorry. The onus on coming up to standard is on the refugee. We do not owe the rest of the world anything.

That this has anything to do with race is a false narrative.

A refugee who does not speak our language will have a hard time in our schools. A refugee who doesn’t understand and respect our culture will turn our everyday life into a powder keg.

Trumps’ Travel Bans are fully Constitutional.

 

False Narrative # Four
Hillary won the Popular Vote – False.

QUEEN hILLARY

Queen Hillary was crowned by Wall Street. America did not want her.

Trump won the Electoral College by a Landslide. It was stated Hillary won the popular vote but this is questionable when you take into account results from third party candidates and voter fraud.  In 2016 America was clearly leaning right even in the popular vote.

Relevant to the popular vote narrative is also evidence of voter fraud where illegals were voting for Hillary. Judicial Watch has uncovered massive voter fraud in South Carolina. Judicial Watch uses Freedom of Information and legal suits to get at the truth.

Conclusion: That Hillary won the popular vote is more PROPAGANDA than it is truth.

 

False Narrative # Six
Trump and the GOP are Racists – False 

businessdiversity

“If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make our world safe for diversity.”  – John F. Kennedy

During the Primary Election of 2016 and the fight for power between Trump & Hillary there was intense slander.  America would do well to reform its libel laws.  Things said by candidates are frequently twisted.

Trump is opposed to illegal immigration and unvetted refugees and travel from unsettled countries  This has been twisted to LABEL him a racist. Certainly MSM has called him a racist. The Black Caucus has called him a racist. Hillary called him a racist.   Obama-appointed judges have called him racist.  Why do they always attack others for thier own sins?

Let us examine the facts here:

Trump has employed persons of every race, pays women much or more than men,  As an employer his company history shows him in no way a bigot.

Where he clashes with the  LEFT is that he expects all Americans to learn a trade, get a job, support their families and contribute to the nation. He expects Americans to follow the law. He sees all men as equal, provided they are legal and no man is more equal than others.

We have serious situation with immigration and refugees in America and it is a situation that was not of Trump’s making. There is much lawlessness South of the Border and we do not want it spilling into America. Crime from unvetted immigrants and refugees has become a problem to the safety of America.

We have eleven million plus immigrants living illegally in America and although this number has dropped under Trump, until the wall is built we have no control over criminal elements entering our country.

More than half of illegal immigrants came here to escape poverty or crime in Mexico (and more recently they are coming from other Latin American countries)

The real problem is in Mexico.  Beautiful country, same continent ask yourself why is Mexico poor and America rich? Reason: they don’t have and honor our constitution or have our language rooted in rule of law.

The solution is not for us to accept these people in our country for they threaten our safety and are a welfare burden.  The sane and the compassionate solution is for America to teach Mexico how to control their drugs and crime and to show them how to put in a workable system of government.

Trump did not create the illegal problem, yet he has been willing to face it and handle it.

Congress makes the laws, the judges interpret the laws, and the President exists to enforce the laws. Trump may be the first president in a long time actually doing his job but sadly he is obstructed on every side.

Proving again that Trump is in no way racist and a strong supporter of Diversity is the choice of school for his son Barron. Not following in the tradition of past presidents, the Trumps looked afield for a stimulating environment but also one rich in diversity

happy-children

Eight years ago before the rise of inverse racism there was a strong push within corporate America to foster diversity.  One of the most successful programs was the art-centered diversity event. The best of all cultures is found in the art and music, and this raises morale and shows us we are all the same, although delightfully different.

Man is not the color of his skin, the size of his nose or even his genetic heritage.

We are spiritual beings, and first and foremost, we are Americans, one nation under God.

Guns, Drugs and Violence

Should we Ban the Guns?

Mass shootings are always tragic; especially where the victims are children, as in the recent Sandy Hook incident. How awful to be a parent who has lost a child that way. It is so senseless. That there has been a huge outcry against guns is quite understandable.

Unwarranted gun violence is not a new issue. In April 1999, another tragic school shooting occurred at Columbine High School, which prompted me to address the gun control issue then. My views on the subject have not changed.

There is talk about banning guns outright. If that means shutting down all gun and ammunition factories and disarming the military, the police and security guards, I would welcome such a move of the authorities setting a good example, but I don’t think that’s what our illustrious leaders have in mind. They aim to limit the rights of civilians to arm themselves and that is a dangerous idea.

More recently, guns have been banned in Australia, with a disastrous crime wave following in its wake, as shown in this video: Click on the picture to see the video.

Stats after gun control in Australia

What Lies Behind The Violence?

Aside from easy access to guns, there are many other underlying issues that contribute to such unwarranted violence; declining morals, violence seen on TV and in movies and lack of parental control. But what is not widely known is that a common denominator in many school shootings has been that the children committing the violence were on mind-altering drugs.

drugs & guns

The fact that these random acts of violence are drug-related is noted by renowned natural healer, Dr. Richard Schultze To quote Dr. Schulze, “In EVERY case of mass shootings in the last few decades, the killers were later found out to be taking LEGAL, medical doctor prescribed, pharmaceutical, mind-altering, prescription drugs.”

Many of our children need help. The kind of help they need depends on the individual circumstances. Trying to understand them would be a good place to start. Let’s spend time with them, talk with them, guide them, set a good example. Pumping chemicals into them is not going to do it. That’s betrayal, not help. Let’s get our kids off drugs.

But the real question is “Should We Ban Guns?”

Some years ago, I saw a bumper sticker that read, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” That is not quite accurate. Yes, criminals will still be able to get their hands on guns, but the cops and our government will also still have them; and we should beware of such a situation.

defneceless

The recent spate of shootings, no doubt, has made many of us consider gun control as a possible solution to the violence that is so rampant in the United States. However, any attempts at gun control are fought tooth and nail by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Obviously, some control is needed—not having any controls is like driving a car blindfolded, with similar disastrous results. The other side of the coin is that our freedom is threatened when the individual’s right to bear arms is curtailed and this might land us into far deeper trouble.

It’s the old conflict of freedom versus safety and comfort. As usual, the optimum solution lies somewhere between the two extremes. It is possible to have some controls in place without running the risk of being done in by “Big Brother.”

The reality is that guns are tools of death. That’s their purpose. The better the gun, the better it enables its user to kill others. We could envisage a society with no guns at all. Perhaps such a society would make us feel much safer, but unfortunately not everyone has our best interests at heart and to abandon all weapons would leave us exposed to the whims of bullies, who would not hesitate to take unfair advantage of their superior strength. The result would be slavery. With the liabilities of “homo sapiens,” taking away guns altogether would not be a good solution.

Over a decade ago I read the following information in a publication called the Odessa Fact Sheet, that is no longer in circulation, but the information is still relevant today.

What Happens After Gun Control?

Al Fuller says, “Limited Gun Control measures are usually the first steps toward taking all firearms out of the hands of all civilians. Did you know:

  • Turkey established gun control in 1911. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • The Soviet Union established gun control in 1929. From 1929 to 1953, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Germany established gun control in 1938. From 1939 to 1945, over 10 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill people, political dissidents, and other “misfits,” unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, over 1 million “educated people,” unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Guatamala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were slaughtered like cattle.”

Conclusion

Tragic as gun violence is, we must ask ourselves whether we are willing to let fear dominate us enough to sacrifice our freedoms.

Guns are dangerous, but they can also protect us from those who would harm us. The fact is that gun control does not work. If it did, Chicago and Washington DC, two cities with some of the nation’s strictest gun control laws, would be the safest cities to live in. In reality, the violent crime rates in these two cities are among the nation’s highest. It stands to reason: if law-abiding citizens are prevented from arming themselves, criminals, who don’t care about the law and who always can find ways to get guns, will have fewer worries about meeting armed resistance.

You think it couldn’t happen here? Don’t kid yourself! It is happening in Britain.
