Trump rattles statehouse order

| January 30, 2017

SACRAMENTO — In state capitals from Albany to Sacramento, and in Democratic and Republican-controlled statehouses, President Donald Trump is emerging as a central organizing principle for both parties.

For governors and lawmakers traditionally focused within their own borders, the opening of legislative sessions this month— and the fierce intensity of the debate surrounding Trump’s executive action banning Muslim immigration from select countries— is laying bare political fault lines that the president is already recasting outside of Washington D.C., a testament to his deeply polarizing style of governance and to the impact he is having on the policymaking agenda.

            1st Edition

            ( On The Precipice Of War Again? )

            Dear Good Citizens,

            “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people”. Eleanor Roosevelt

            May I ask for a moment of your time!

            11 score and 19 years ago our forefathers brought forth this great nation with an idea, the common understanding that all men are created equal. On the Precipice of war they drafted our Declaration of Independence:

            “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

            By experiencing the atrocities of their times and after winning a war with great loss of life they drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights ( The1st 10 Amendments).

            “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

            We the People, how profound! There are 21 articles in the constitution. Then why the Bill of Rights(The 1st 10 Amendments)?

            Though much of the subject matter is mentioned in The Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States of America. The founding fathers felt it important to further detail the most important Rights which are the Inherit Rights of the American Citizens, the Rights of a Free People..

            Phenomenal isn’t it?

            For anyone wondering why I did not mention the13th Amendment is that it was just a clarification of the original intent of the Declaration of Independence “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”!

            So often we forget that our Country is based upon an idea. See a man can die but a good idea as simple as it sounds can last hundreds of years. I admit our Country has had its dark times in the past. Lets call it out for what it was. The near genocide of many Native American Indian cultures. The enslavement of people both dark skinned and fair. How was such atrocities justified? They call it Propaganda! See history is so often written by the winners of any conflicts and rarely tells the truths of the actual events and injustices if such truths reflect badly on the winners. Like rat poison they trick you by giving you some truths interwoven with lies. Rat poison is 99 % good food and 1% poison. I dare to guess we all have seen, heard or have experienced similar situations in our own lives. Atrocities where great injustices are covered up or justified by the offenders. If a person doesn’t have the finances to seek justice then they are left having to endure the emotional costs of such offenses with no avenue of recourse.

            I know great harm can come from the best of intentions and a persons actions speak louder than their words. Since our very existence there has always been hate, and there always will be, but each of us are in charge of how we choose to feel. You can sit there and ignore the truth but you are only betraying yourself. For the truth cannot be destroyed. In this world we must all die. It is out of our control and the inevitable fact of our existence on earth. Our choice is how we wish to live that existence.

            As we approach our Country’s 240th birthday I ask all of you to look around and honestly ask yourself if our country is now an honest reflection of our founding fathers visions. Visions given to them by their Creator.

            When I look around I see a country that has fallen from God’s grace. Unborn children being killed by the millions. Individuals inherit rights being violated daily. Politicians preaching hate and division amongst those that put them in office. The total disregard of our Constitution by Presidents and Representatives. You may ask who to hold responsible for these transgressions against us?

            Sadly in reality all any of us have to do is look in a mirror. I know why you did it! You were scared, you quit believing in God or a higher power or wished to believe that your Representatives have your best interests in mind when they legislate, just too tired after a hard day of work to simply take a moment and vote. When we took Creation Science out of the schools we turned our back on our creator and everyone of us are guilty, yet our children are the ones who will suffer the most! We had once a great nation and I believe we can have it again.

            In closing, all I can ask of you is to be honest to yourself. Instead of discussing events, discuss ideas of how we can get back on track, at least in our own communities. I also ask that if you believe as I believe, if you feel as I feel and if you have seen what I have seen, then find it in your hearts to do something about it, if for no other reason than for your children. I personally have been seeking the truth for 50 years and have recently found it. Never stop learning and always keep going forward with an open mind.

            Sincerely,

            General Billy Bob Hickey, God’s Corps

            God Bless America

            The Magnitude of the Lie

            Incentivized Criminalization is a cancer in our country like the political parties. A victim-less crime is Malum Prohibitum which according to the constitution is not a crime. Free will is not a crime though they enforce it here. Watch on you tube “Former Deputy Sheriff Eddy Craig Right To Travel”. Then go to Hillsdale College there is a free course Constitution 101 which will help you to better understand what this Country’s original Founders intent was. What made this Country Great. Freewill is what you will find. Inherit Rights endowed to us by our Creator. Doctor Micheal Savage does an excellent Investigative Journalistic Report on Incentivized Criminalization on one of his past radio talk show episodes. When they removed the prison system from privately held to publicly traded, which many Politicians supported, was the beginning. All you have to do is follow the money and you will find it leads back into holding companies, which are held in mutual fund type setups, and is in most of our Politicians retirement accounts. You can thank President Bush Jr. for signing and promoting the war on drugs which provides the constant inflow of non violent criminals for the most part. It is a way to control the voting blocks of the poor, minorities, lower middle class and so on. You cannot vote for the most part in this Country if you have a Felony. A person gets convicted for possession of Hemp which George Washington grew, Thomas Jefferson and many of the other founding fathers. In World War II the government ran a propaganda film “Hemp for Victory” . Now today a person gets caught 3 times with possession and they can do 20, 30, 40 years in prison. For Malum Prohibitum crime. Exercising there freewill not harming anyone. Now take a rapist or pedophile. They have committed Malum in Se. A crime against humanity. They get 6,10, 15 year sentences. Are you starting to see the problem?

            Wake up America!

    We need to ship these brain dead wacko’s to reeducation camps, there is probably no saving them………………..a lot of them are so mentally ill that its to late for them.
    Offer them the red pill, it will stop there suffering.

  • KingDon

    Banning Muslim immigration from “selected” countries only makes common sense. Who in their right mind would invite those originating in countries trying to destroy us to enter this country until rock-solid verification of their intent to in-mesh into the American fabric along with the rest of us? One of the principal objectives of our country’s Constitution is that all religions be able to live here in peace, tolerating the religious differences of others. The Quran, by its very verses, forbids this, demanding instead that the rest of us comply or face the consequences.

    If those wishing to immigrate cannot coexist with the rest of us, they should be required to return to their countries of origin where they can happily live out their lives being subjugated under the rules of the Quran.

    Failure to do so can only be interpreted as an act of war against non-Muslim American people.

    • steve reid

      Amen Brother!

  • Bruce Weatherly

    I can’t believe what a bunch of wooses the Right is. Here they have millions of guns to protect themselves and their family and they squat and pee out of fear of a bunch of Muslim women and children. Americans murder more Americans in any given year than have been killed by Terrorist going back to the Puerto Rican bombing of Capital Hill in the early 1950’s and that includes Beirut bombing of the Marines, the bombing of the Cole, the two Iraq wars, the War in Afghanistan, all the embassy bombing, all the nightclub attacks and the attack on Benghazi. All of this and Republicans squat for a some of Muslim women and children. If you want to be afraid be afraid of The Donald.

    • CALVIN

      Your must be talking about all the killings in Chicago, right! Its not how many that are killed, the point is he is trying to keep american citizens safe! If you have lost a loved one in one of those attacks listed, you would be singing a different tune! Its the democrats that are the whining bunch of babies. Your the ones that need to grow some balls!

      • Bruce Weatherly

        B.S. If he wants to keep Americans safe try reaching out to the Muslim Community and develop the respect and love Muslim had for America up until about 1970.

        • Suzu M

          NOT. They DO NOT AND DO NOT PLAN TO changing their tune about us.
          Don’t be deceived. Get educated.
          Let them prove to us, that they are not of evil intent. Then we can enjoy their ‘company’.

          If there are innocent Muslims out there and among us, who are NOT out to get us, then they will be understanding enough to know what we gotta do.
          Especially, if they’ve fled persecution themselves.

          • Bruce Weatherly

            What a fool. You obviously don’t know any Muslims personally. I’m not saying you have never seen one walking down the street in those terrifying clothes they wear, but you don’t really know any do you. I suggest you contact a Mosque and see if you can’t have them introduce you to a Muslim family. I worked with Muslims for over 40 years, I live next door to a wonderful Palestinian family. I know there are some horrible Muslims out there, but our prisons are full of horrible Christian. If I wind up murdered the odds are pretty good it will be a Christian that does it and it is extremely unlikely I will be killed by a Muslim. That does not mean there is not risk associated with allowing Muslims into the country, but the risk is greater if we alienate 1 billion Muslims throughout the world. Check the immigrant out as good as humanly possible and if you they don’t look bad and they need compassion let them in. We must assume some risk or risk assuming even more.

          • Suzu M

            I’m a fool for saying what YOU said? Let them prove they are not out to get us? We don’t know which ones are the ones with evil intent? Why don’t you look closer at what Trump wants to do before accusing him of thinking ALL MUSLIMS are evil? You’re just inciting trouble.

          • Bruce Weatherly

            I’m inciting trouble? The Duck is the one that refused entry from 7 Muslim countries and I’m inciting trouble? I spent 8 years of absolute hatred against Obama starting in day one and the right now wants everyone to give an absolute idiot a green light. Well if he can’t stand the heat I suggest he stay out of the kitchen cause the air conditioner is not going to help.

        • steve reid

          They already hate us so what’s the difference. Let’s just put a bullet in their heads and get it over with.

          • Bruce Weatherly

            First and foremost you don’t have enough bullets. Second right now there is a small percentage that hates us and as soon as you start acting like Adolph the rest will indeed hate us. I certainly don’t want 1 billion Muslim hating America.

    • Suzu M

      You know what? The MEN USE the women and children to KILL US!
      They sent out a woman and child to run toward our Men. The child had something in his hand. They zoomed in. Guess what it was. A lollipop? A matchcar box? A Bible? A baseball? and APPLE? mmm…NO.
      It was a GRENADE. That’s how much these muslim men care about their women.
      And then there’s the Mother. What did she do? She pulled out a GUN from underneath her flowing robe.
      You don’t KNOW which of these women and children are sent out to kill us. YOU. DON’T. KNOW.
      YOU. DON’T. KNOW.
      WE. DON’T. KNOW!

      The only thing we know is what has ALREADY happened. And the trend is NOT good.
      THAT’S why people have their guard up.
      And THAT’S why securing our borders and banning certain travelers is VITAL to our safety.

      Wake up.
      BEFORE our little girls get BOMBED by their little guys.
      Wake up.
      BEFORE our women get shot down by THEIR women.
      Wake up.
      BEFORE those terrorists kill off most of OUR men, leaving the weak and fragile and young to try to defend themselves against animals who train their children to HATE.
      WAKE UP. WAKE UP. WAKE UP.

      WE are not against innocent people. (like those terrorists are).

      WE are out to WATCH OUR OWN BACKS. Once we can establish THAT, we can help OTHERS.
      Just like a mother has to take care of herself, before she can take care of her family…
      Just like an airline stewardess has to put HER mask on first, before she can help others….
      WE must take care of ourselves FIRST,

      If you can’t understand this yet, I hope with all my being, you get that wake up call, BEFORE you or your own family gets hurt.

      • Bruce Weatherly

        I would never tell a person not to keep their guard up. This whole terrorist thing is so blown out of proportion though. There is no true way of comparing the murders that take place daily in America to terrorist acts, but I will say your daughter is in greater danger from the NRA’s position on guns than from Middle East Terrorist. We already have Muslims in this country legally and some are or will become terrorist. How can we have such a fear of Muslim Terrorist that exist and be so lackadaisical to the insane Terrorists that were responsible for Sandy Hook and Columbine? It boggles my mind to see 40% of the country up in arms against Terrorist from the Middle East and not concerned one bit about 200 million guns in the hands of how many hate groups scattered throughout the country,

        • Suzu M

          Wrong. the NRA members have not gone out and killed anyone in terrorist attacks. So sir, YOU are wrong. And BLOWN OUT of PROPORTION???? REALLY???? When we can’t even bring a backpack with us because we’d be suspected of carrying explosives? When 4 planes were hijacked and slammed into the sides of buildings, etc. Mind-boggling how you can even DARE to think that this is OUR FAULT, by ‘blowing things out of proportion.”
          You know what? I’d rather BLOW THINGS OUT OF PROPORTION then go blow people up.
          These bans are for doing EXACTLY what is needed. Slow things down so we can CLEAR the innocent people and let them in. But we can’t check everyone when they are coming in swarms.
          Read!

          • Bruce Weatherly

            I didn’t say they had. What I said was, “There is no true way of comparing the murders that take place daily in America to terrorist acts, but I will say your daughter is in greater danger from the NRA’s position on guns than from Middle East Terrorist.” Not NRA terrorist act, but the incessant refusal of the NRA to even look at any kind of gun control legislation, hence their position on guns.

    • steve reid

      Ok so we’ll send them to live with you in your neighborhood.

      • Bruce Weatherly

        As a matter of fact or alternative fact, take your pick, I have a Palestinian family that lives right next door. Great family of very good well educated, well mannered people. Send them over.

  • Patriot47

    It’s called leadership. Trump excels, always has. Expect many wins and liberal hysterics.

  • Nancy Stull

    I agree with KingDon. if the Muslim’s cannot live here in peace, and not coexist in this country, the only other choice is for them to return to the countries they originated from. I certainly think all persons who choose to enter this country should be vetted by our government.
