martial law before the end of the year?

friday, december 28th, 2018

in the United States, there is precedent for martial law. Several times in the course of our history, martial law of varying degrees has been declared. The most obvious and often-cited example was when President Lincoln declared martial law during the Civil War. This instance provides us with most of the rules for martial law that we would use today, should the need arise.

“Constitutional Topic: Martial Law”: "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it – Article 1, Section 9, Clause 2, US Constitution."

Things are getting out of hand folks, and I don’t think you need to be especially perceptive to sense it. When will the Rubicon be crossed, the gauntlet thrown, and the point of no return reached? Some would say that we have already reached that point, reached that point and passed it.

Activist judges increasingly feel free to “interpret” law according to their own personal biases, instead of using the US Constitution as their North Star and guide. If the president issues an order that the Left disagrees with you can count on some judge in California or Hawaii striking it down.

Judges are charged not with deciding whether a law leads to good or bad results, but with whether it violates the Constitution and, if not, how it is properly construed and applied in a given case. Labeling as “activist” a decision that fails to meet this standard expresses not policy disagreement with the outcome of a case, but disagreement with the judge’s conception of his or her role in our constitutional system.

The Democrat’s disdain for the US Constitution was on full display for all the world to see during the Kafkaesque Kavanaugh hearings. Guilty before proven innocent? Proof of any wrongdoing is unnecessary? The accuser sounds good, so hang the accused? America without rule of law is not America at all – and America is letting slip its grip on rule of law at an ever-accelerating pace. I won’t even get into our two-tiered justice system.

The reasoning employed here is a bit terrifying; I’ve suffered or heard stories of women being raped, ergo, I “believe completely” that Brett Kavanaugh held down and attempted to rape a girl at a house party in 1983. It’s not so much a leap in logic as it is a transatlantic flight.

Antifa “brown shirt” thugs use Nazi bully-boy tactics of violence and intimidation to silence free speech and strangle reasoned debate. Leave the Left to their lies, but We the People should be, need to be, well aware that the Nazis were never a right-wing ideology. Nazis were, are, and always will be a LEFT-wing socialist ideology. There ain’t no such animal as a right-wing Nazi. Communism and Fascism are left-wing kissing cousins.

Neo-Nazis are the violent advocates of a murderous ideology that killed 25 million people last century. Antifa members are the violent advocates of a murderous ideology that, according to “The Black Book of Communism,” killed between 85 million and 100 million people last century. Both practice violence and preach hate. They are morally indistinguishable. [And ideologically related.] – Marc A. Thiessen “Yes, antifa is the moral equivalent of neo-Nazis”

As Sean Hannity has repeatedly told his audience, the noxious left-wing tactic of doxing conservatives and harassing them in restaurants (and at home) will inevitably lead to someone getting hurt, perhaps killed. How much blood will need to be spilled until it’s too much? I don’t know – perhaps we should ask Rep. Steve Scalise.

“I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”

Protesters? Give me a break – we are talking about masked thugs invading private property, vandalizing it, and terrorizing the lone female occupant. “Protesters” my butt.

Voter fraud is rampant in America – a case in point is currently underway in Democrat controlled areas in Florida. President Trump’s committee that looked into voter fraud on a national basis was shut down due to resistance from Democrat blue states. Hmmm, I wonder why. Actually, We the People know damn well why – entrenched voter fraud. The Dems make a big deal out of Clinton winning the popular vote – in point of fact I rather doubt she did, legitimately. Wouldn’t you love to know the actual 2016 vote count in California – I mean without counting bogus ballots and illegals?

“Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the [Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity] with basic information relevant to its inquiry.”

“Every day since the election, the left-wing activists in Broward County have been coming up with more and more ballots out of nowhere,” Mr. Scott’s statement read. “We all know what is going on. Every person in Florida knows exactly what is happening. Their goal is to keep mysteriously finding more votes until the election turns out the way they want.” – James Varney “Rick Scott sues Broward, Palm Beach counties over election results”.

The White House press corps is off the chain – their recent behavior toward President Trump was despicable beyond belief; I was appalled. Acosta was, of course, especially confrontational, even by his standards.

In any event, allowing such insulting, unruly, semi-barbaric behavior to continue damages not only the White House, but the nation as a whole. It must stop, and a return to civility and proper decorum be enforced. We the People must insist on it, because we elected Trump, and when they disrespect the POTUS they are disrespecting us.

I’m telling you, folks, they are on the verge of trying to come up with ways to basically wipe you and your point of view out as far as having any input in elections or any influence. They’re tired of you. They’re sick of you. They’re tired of dealing with you. You’re not legitimate. You’re a lot of other things too. You’re not smart, all of these things, and they’re fed up losing to you. Mark my words. It isn’t gonna be long and somebody’s gonna suggest that elections are the problem. Just sayin’.

The Democrats are in charge of the House again. I can hardly imagine what a circus of the absurd that is going to be. I seriously doubt that bipartisan bonhomie will replace non-stop Trump baiting/bashing as the favorite Democrat team sport any time soon. The House will devolve into a 24/7 “Get Trump” zoo – you can see it coming from a mile away.

Expect hearings where the Democrats go off the rails with accusations against the president and his supporters and administration officials, and go all in to defend people they view as critical to undermining Trump.

“Caravan” – a media coined euphemism for an invasion by illegal foreigners. In any event, the “caravan” is coming, and coming, and coming. A continual flow of illegals that will never stop unless they are forced to. The Democrats, and globalists of all types, detest nation states (countries, with secure borders) and they really, really, really want open borders. “No borders, no wall, no USA at all!” – kind of a catchy meme, huh?

We the People are fortunate to have seen what Western European globalist politicians (aided and abetted by their media toadies) have done to destroy their own countries, using an indiscriminate and massive influx of foreigners – how they intentionally diluted and diminished their native cultures and patriotic pride. The globalists very much have the same thing in mind for America—you can take that to the bank.

As other caravans began to assemble in Central America, Trump said he would send, first 5,200 and then 15,000, troops to the border. This ignited the predictable hysteria of the media elite who decried his “racism,” his “lying” and his “attack on the 14th Amendment.” Trump, they railed, is sending more troops to the Mexican border than we have in Syria or Iraq. True. But to most Americans, the fate and future of the republic is more likely to be determined on the U.S.-Mexican border than on the border between Syria and Iraq.

You and I know that I could go on in this vein for a long time, pointing out the many flash-points in our country. But enough. To sum up let me say that America has reached a point where in order to save it, drastic steps are called for. I can’t see any other viable option. We either let America sink into a violence and chaos instigated, promoted, and orchestrated by the Left, or the Trump Administration takes radical pro-active steps to minimize the damage, apply national triage, and stop the insanity cold.

This would mean that the ride will get pretty bumpy in the short term, but things will smooth out eventually – hopefully sooner rather than later. Regardless, it must be done – surgically, rapidly, intelligently, dispassionately – and soon. Nothing less than the survival of America and freedom around the world is at stake. No half measures folks – all the way or nothing.

God has blessed We The People with the right man, in the right place, at the right time.  He knows we have his six.  Let’s roll.

★★★JS: IMO, they all need to be ID'd, hunted down and slaughtered. Next, MS-13, then BLM, then the Panthers, then all muzzies (SPIT!), all the Leftists, anarchists, socialists, marxists, commies and all other criminals. Let's empty-out the prisons, kill everyone on Death Row and the hardened criminals; pot smokers are let go, while all traffickers are killed. Don't like that? "Hard cheese, if you don't. JMO.★★★

A Day In The Life.

I slept-in until 7:30a on Friday, and yes, it was still raining – ***FLOOD WATCHES*** posted everywhere – but 62° and "balmy" outside. Bright side: at least it wasn't snow. The cold front moves in on Sunday/Monday. I spent 2hrs at the nearby SSA (Social Security Administration) & IRS (Internal Revenue Service) Complex here in East York, Ticket #D57, on a hard metal chair, waiting for "my turn", with rows and rows of illegal alien scumbags. I needed to get some of Dad's SSA and Medicare Documents, but since I'm not Executor of The Estate – Becky is – the lady behind the bulletproof glass couldn't help me. Shit, now Becky's got to go thru all that bullshit at SSA. Stupid dumbf•cks.

The traffic home – maybe 3-4 miles – was horrendous, and both UPS and FedEx were delivering packages to my front porch. I had all windows and screendoors open, after I got home, to get some fresh air thru the condo, and it's just like Spring. "Take a picture; it won't last long." It'll be back in the 30s & 40s by next mid-week.

If you're feeling good, don't worry; you'll get over it.

I stayed-in for the rest of the day, had some reheated Panera Bread® Bistro French Onion Soup and a egg salad sandwich on toast, and just enjoyed the warm weather, everytime I went out for a smoke. Temps started dropping from 62° down into the low 50s, around 4p. T-storms, thunder & lightening rolled thru, dropping 2-3" rain/hr between 6-6:30p.

I watched old and new episodes of "Gold Rush" on Discovery Channel, switched to "The Ingraham Angle" on Fox Business CATV at 10p, and we've got a "partial gov't shutdown" at midnight, which means absolutely nothing. The checks still go out, everyone gets paid, and 30% of FedGov – deemed "non-essential workers" – get paid vacation. If they're "non-essential workers", why is FedGov even employing them? We could save many many billions each year, if we just fired those freeloaders, and let them find a real job, or retire to the Private Sector. Keep the "essential workers". Then, History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" came on, and I watched until midnight. I was tired, took my evening's regimen of 4 Rx pills, and went to bed.

seals – will.
Self-starters – will not. Interchangeable parts – won't.

I slept-in until 9a on Saturday. It's Gov't Shutdown Day! Woo-hoo! After getting the condo's heat up, I made coffee, had a smoke, took my morning regimen of 14 Rx pills, turned-on my cell and it was loaded with voicemails. I just couldn't seem to clear my brain cobwebs; I felt like going back to sleep for the rest of the morning. But I drove over to the nearby Rite Aid Pharmacy to p/u some Rxs, and get a Starbuck's® Double Shot Vanilla Energy Drink, of which I have many cases of, in my garage, along w/ Bai® antioxidant infused flavored waters & super teas. I felt better after the 25g of sugar coursed thru my veins.

I had a Rotisserie Chicken Salad Sandwich on toast with Steamed Asparagus, for a late lunch, followed by a Starbuck's® Double Shot Vanilla Bean, Coffee and Protein, Energy Drink; one of 3 cases to arrive this morning. Mmmmmmm, "hit the spot". I drove over to nearby Weis Market, and it was packed with people pushing overflowing big shopping carts, got the few things I wanted, in a small cart, and went right thru the self-checkout lane right away. Traffic on the way back was horrendous again, but I made good time with the right lane choices.

Here's what I watch, instead of left-wing DBM news or now (that Rupert Murdoch's kids have taken over his empire) leftist-leaning Fox News: OAN Network. They're on Direct TV and DISH, but not mainstream cable, yet.

I watched Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch for a few hours, worked in the basement sorting Dad's things and cleaning-off shelves, and doing some computer "cleaning/ housework". After taking my evening Rx pills, around 11p, I shut down and went up to bed.

There's no "catching-up on sleep", either. Sleep is like time: once you've lost it, you can never get it back.

Up at 8:30a on Sunday, I had a wretched night's sleep. I must have drank too much liquid the night before, as I was up at the "porcelain throne" every 1-2hrs. Spironolactone (Aldactone) is the culprit diuretic, so I emailed my Dr/PCP and he's letting me off it for a few weeks. Talk about interrupted sleep. Anyway, I made coffee, had some OJ, a smoke and checked the news and weather on the 82" Samsung. This article, License-to-Kill Policing to Get a Trial Run in Rio de Janeiro, got my day off to a bad start. It can and just might happen here.

Jeeez, I'm so sick of the media maggots, leftist FoxNews included, predicting doom and gloom for Trump and America, because of a partial Gov't Shutdown and plunging markets. Pfffffft! I had a Ham Salad Sandwich & Chips">Ham Salad Sandwich on Rye w/ Chips, with Roasted Potatoes for lunch, and that made me feel better. I got off the news channels, and on to CATV's MotorTrend® Channel's (formerly The Velocity Channel) new episodes (#7-#8-#9-#10-#11), for the entire evening, of Fantom Works, and 1 episode of GraveYard Carz.

None of us are here forever, we're not even here for very long; and if it's true that our collective past exists inside all of us, unless we take time to bear witness to the best of those who strived before us, our chance to learn from their lives will be lost forever, and we will be the poorer for it. The rain/sleet/snow started around 8p; so far, we've gotten 7"+ in 3 days, causing all kinds of misery for the folks living in low-lying areas. Sucks to be them. I took my evening Rx pills, watched another episode (#12) of "Phantom Works", called it Yankee Doodle at 11:45p, shut down and went up to sleep.

The action by Munchkin (Mnuchin) looks pretty unhinged to me. This move struck me as either stupid, or responding to some intrigue that we mere pawns have absolutely no clue about. The latter I doubt very seriously. The claims that Trump is playing 4D chess are growing thin. He is looking more like a bull in a china shop every day. Nobody can do the job he has taken on alone and he is looking more lonely every day. His ability to pick helpers is plain poor so far. He allowed a bunch of obama accolytes to stay that should have been flushed from day one. Better an empty chair than one pulling the rope against you. I’m not bashing Trump so forget those kinds of condemnations. I’m reluctantly addressing fact. You can’t ignore what is taking place. Things "look" really bad, but in fact, it's all manufactured by the leftist/commie/socialist/anarchist/marxist demokkkRATs. The deck is stacked against Trump and has been since before he was elected. His job should not be this hard with a Senate majority but they are against him and us as well. The poor man is alone and under siege. Sucks to be him. I pray for him and us every day.

Awake and up at 7a, a good night's sleep, I turned-up the heat, made coffee and checked the weather and news. 31° and the rain/snow had moved northward into New England. No snow accumulation, as temps were now in the 40s, and the snow was passing north of us. I drove to my old PNC Bank, and withdrew $7,650 from checking, leaving just $1,100 to cover transfers to pay on their VISA Card, and put the cash in my safe at home. I had some of Becky's meatloaf and steamed asparagus for lunch, took the Jeep over to the DIY Carwash on East Market St, and gave it a thorough scrubbing and vacuuming, and by then, it was getting dusk. Jeep inside for the night, it didn't take long for temps to drop after sundown, into the upper-20s.

I watched Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", Becky called to wish me a Merry Christmas, I finished making Christmas Cards for Becky, and Dave & Stacey, whom we're having dinner with tomorrow afternoon at 4p, and watched some "Christmas Flash Mob" videos. Cute. I watched History's "Ancient Aliens: Declassified" until 11:30p, took my 5 evening Rx pills, closed down and went to sleep.

Every day which goes by, I now miss a beloved person or a favorite pet, who has died, either prematurely or of old age, and is now gone forever from my Life on this earthly place. I mourn their passing, but rejoice in the fact that we once crossed paths and shared Life, Love and Companionship, together.

RIP, Cousin Charles Eckhard.

I slept-in until 8a on Tuesday, Christmas Day, fired-up the furnace, made coffee and noticed a large lump of coal on my mantle, mixed-in with all the cards, from Santa. My bad. I had a very good night's sleep, with zero trips to the bathroom. It's definitely the Spironolactone, not this. I had some computer problems and had to run CCleaner, Norton 360 and MalwareBytes, to get it working properly, and to my standards. That ate up much of the day, until I had oatmeal w/ fresh blueberries.

This stupid, ignorant spic bitch, Ocasio-Cortez, just can't get anything right. Nothing. She's as dumb as a stump. And 'dis dumbass O'nigga skank bitch is wearing $3,900 Balenciaga boots, and still is a lowlife sambette; spots don't change.

I met Becky at 3:45p, at her condo, gave her a Christmas present I'd personalized for her, and Christmas card I'd made, and we went next door to Dave & Stacey's condo, for Christmas Dinner. I had a card that I'd made for them, and dropped-off their Christmas presents, also signs I'd personalized for their auto business, last Friday. We had a wonderful Baked Brie Cheese

In Perryville, MD

Pastry, Baked Spiral-Cut Honey Ham, Sweet Potatoes w/ Brown Sugar Crumble Crust, Green Beans, Mac & Cheese (I hate that stuff and didn't eat any), Red Shiraz Wine, and some, dark honey-colored, home-brewed liquid, called Boilo, when heated, penetrates all your olfactory senses with an odor you've never experienced before, in your life. It'll rock you back on your heels, at first, but after a few warned-up sips, it's delicious. A few small sips and you're in love with it. I can't tell you any more than that; I just don't know. I found it and the recipe for PA Boilo.

I got home around 7p, took my evening Rxs, watched CATV and Discovery Channel's episodes of "Expedition Unknown" until almost midnight. Time for some sleep.

Did you know there are now 50 Reasons Why Women Live Longer Than Men?

Up at 8a on Wednesday, I did the usual routine – Turned-up heat, made coffee, had a smoke in the garage, checked the weather and news – and checked rest-of-the-week schedule. I have a eye dr's app't tomorrow, the same Opthamalogist (MD) who took care of Dad's eyes, and currently takes care of Becky's. Both had cataract surgery, and this guy, Jeffrey Lander MD, does it all. The cleaning ladies are due in tomorrow. I had a pile of errands to run, so after my morning shower, I left to get as much of that stuff done, as I could. The New Year Holiday will replicate the Christmas Holiday daily/weekly schedule disruption, so I wanted to get a few things completed.

Finally back home after 7 stops, I had some new Gen Tsao's Chicken & Pork Fried Rice and Vegetables, began collecting garbage bags and recyclables to put out at the curb tomorrow, after my eye dr's app't. I sure hope I don't have cataracts, and need eye surgery, but Mom, Dad and Becky have all had it, so I guess it runs in the family. I turned on Rush's program, and it was a guest host, so I laid down on the LR sofa for a short nap. 2hrs later, I was back-up and finishing-up the garbage detail. I watched Discovery Channel's "Homestead Rescue" Series, one which I haven't seen in many months. By 11:30p, I was needing sleep, closed down, took my evening Rx pills, and got some.

Up at 6a on Thursday, I fired-up the furnace and made coffee, and got ready for my early eye dr's app't and the cleaning ladies. 30° outside. The coffee and a few smokes were good. The eye exam experience with an Opthamalogist (MD) took almost 2hrs, and I now need cataract surgery and, natch maybe, new/no glasses. WTF knows? I decided to stay-in for the day, since my eyes were so dilated with drops, and I was proud of myself for making it home without an accident or not running over some little old lady with a walker in an intersection.

I laid down on the LR couch, to give my eyes a break from the dialation drops the Opthamalogist (MD) had put in, to do the exam. Waking-up at 5p, I took out the bagged garbage, recycle bin and cardboard boxes, nicely fit inside each other. A tidy pile, indeed. Jeep in the garage for another bitter cold, frosty night. I pulled my plug, closed down and went upstairs to bed. Lots of things and errands to catch-up on, due to today's eye exam wasting the whole day.

Sears has 24hrs to live; then they pull the bankruptcy plug.

Tomorrow starts a new week and year in the Journal; who knows what 2019 will bring.

See you on the other side of a New Year...

We Need a Little Christmas.

On Christmas Eve in 1818, exactly 200 years ago, Austrian Priest Father Joseph Mohr and his parish music director, Franz Gruber unveiled the Christmas Carol “Stille Nacht” – Silent Night. The first performance at the Church of St. Nicholas was met with “the general approval of all” according to writings of Gruber. Father Mohr had written the lyrics as a poem earlier. Gruber composed the music. It endures today because it paints a hopeful scene of a world as it can be.

It is still the most recorded carol. It is central to the Christmas story. And hope is central to the Christian Faith.

Too many of us take for granted the fundamental role that faith, especially the Christian Faith has played as a foundation for our government and our society. It is no longer fashionable in sophisticated gatherings to discuss, but history is replete with examples that demonstrate this.

How many bubbles are there in a bar of soap?

The Father of our country George Washington, like most of the founders was a man of great faith. He went so far as to say, “It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” Impossible is a pretty brittle word that leaves little wiggle room.

De Tocqueville wrote that “religion is the first instrument of democracy.” He recognized that religious faith inspired self discipline and self discipline was essential to self governance. Faith led to goodness and that America’s greatness was tied to her goodness. You may recall, “America is great because she is good and if America ever fails to be good, she will fail to be great.” It still rings true today.

Jefferson said that Almighty God was the author of our liberty. He wrote, “The God who gave us life, gave us liberty...” Historic revisionists not-withstanding, Jefferson understood that our entire democratic experiment was predicated on the proposition that rights flow from God to the People, not from some government agency or the King. In the United States we began our constitution with the simple words, “We the People.”

Christians believe in a loving God. A God who so loved the world that He sent his only begotten Son into the world to spread the Gospel and to atone for our sins. We believe that his son showed us how to live our lives here on earth. Imagine a world where everyone lived by the Golden Rule and actually did unto others as they would have done to them.

The great motivator and insurance magnate W. Clement Stone said that all human beings need three things to be happy; something to do, someone to love and something to believe in. It’s been said that there are only two world views, one believes in a God centered universe. The other believes in a man centered universe. Sadly, too many Americans and their political leaders that have adopted the man centered philosophy. They have little hope. It explains many things.

People without hope are angry much of the time. They are especially angry with people who do have hope. Since they are not bound by the same moral standards of practicing Christians, they are more likely to believe that achieving their ends justifies bending the rules. If their goals are to weaken or destroy President Trump for example, then using a dossier paid for by his enemies to spy on his campaign is acceptable…as long as you don’t get caught.

Hopeless people are far more likely to rage against the very idea that we can, or even should Make America Great Again. They are willing to bend election rules and abuse absentee ballot guidelines. They debase our language, lacing their angry outbursts with vile profanities. It shouldn’t surprise then that they are more likely to refuse to accept the legitimacy of a duly elected President.

These people never learned the relationship between self government and self discipline. They somehow have convinced themselves that we can build a future on the quicksand of humanism. That we won’t degenerate into tyranny as William Penn warned. Perhaps the light that pierced the darkness will, as with Saul on the road to Damascus, cause the scales to fall from their eyes.

We can hope.

May this season of hope cause us all to be thankful for the many blessings we Americans have received. Content in the knowledge that a loving God watches over us, may we all “sleep in heavenly peace.”

Fake Liberal Media BS

The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.

Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.

Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.

Think you can detect it? Take some serious time and read/scan these articles and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is real deep!
