Nothing brings people together in the United States like a threat from the outside. It is sad that it takes the threat of war to unite the majority of us. Remember 911? I was very pleased to see Lindsey Graham support President Trump on CNN (of all places).
“I don’t want a war. He doesn’t want a war,” Graham said, referring to Trump. “But we’re not going to let this crazy man in North Korea have the capability to hit the homeland.”
Maybe this is a turning point for the anti-Trump people in the Republican Party. I have little hope that many Democratic leaders will put America first, even in a time of crisis. However, the leadership of the party is NOT the people. I believe most Americans will support President Trump if we go to war.
This is a good time to appeal to your friends who have not been on board with President Trump. The threat from North Korea has been growing under previous administrations. It is now falling into the lap of President Trump. We must all support him.
The decision to go to war will not be an easy thing for the President. It is going to be very sobering. We all know the loss of life will be significant. However, if we wait it will be much worse.
The President is giving China one last chance to fix this. I cannot imagine President Trump will wait too much longer if the Chinese fail to stop the insane North Korean leader. We should all pray North Korean Generals turn on Kim Jong Un and put someone in charge that sees the benefits of peace.
It did not take long for people to start asking what my take is on the ICBM launch from North Korea moments ago. This is a quick “brain dump.”
- President Trump is not one to announce any kind of military response. If it happens it will happen without notice.
- President Trump has got to be royally pissed that China allowed this to happen and will hold them accountable.
- China is not interested in war or harm coming to the United States. Without us, the Chinese economy totally collapses and millions of their people starve.
- We have the capability to shoot down missiles. However, the probability of a successful shoot-down of an ICBM has to be weighed against that of error.
- The South Koreans have a lot to lose and that is part of the equation. However, they have to weigh possible nuclear annihilation to conventional war losses.
- If the President does not feel confident enough in our ability to shoot down North Korean ICBM’s I would anticipate an attack on North Korean ICBM’s as they are being fueled.
The bottom line is Kim Jong-un has left the world no other choice. I cannot see President Trump or Secretary Mattis standing still for this. As President Trump just said, “We will handle this.”
For Immediate Release
RE: JANUARY 27TH RALLY – MAGA MARCH FOR JUSTICE (MMFJ)
WASHINGTON, DC—In its mission to support and defend President Trump in Making America Great Again and to demand an end to abuses of power that illegitimately subvert the lawful execution of his electoral mandate, MAGA March for Justice will rally in Washington, DC and other locations across the country on January 27, 2018.
Supportive of President Trump and his promise to Make America Great Again, MAGA March for Justice tangibly represents the historic electoral victory achieved by the President through his promises to secure our border, act in American interests at home and abroad, and return power to citizens by ending corruption in Washington, DC and the two-tier justice system that enabled it.
Moreover, the focus of the January rally is to bring attention to illegitimate abuses of power by the judiciary, legislature, and executive branch agents, designed to politically obstruct the President in acting upon the mandate of his voters as well as protect government figures under current and previous administrations connected to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who benefitted from and/or participated in a cover-up of pay-to-play influence connected to The Clinton Foundation in regard to Russian bribery and disinformation campaign to secure access to American Uranium. This is the illicit scheme uncovered by the FBI, known commonly as the “Uranium One” scandal.
Having secured a permit from local Washington authorities as well as initial backing from a financial benefactor for $20,000, MAGA March for Justice has already caught the attention of social media figures prominently critical of the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The group plans to leverage this initial show of support to garner the interest of other media, personalities, and supporters to create a massive visual to Washington and the public in their rally, with plans to execute concurrent rallies in other cities.
MMFJ asserts that President Trump is being willfully harassed and obstructed in executing his lawful authority as President by an illegitimate Special Counsel investigation by Robert Mueller that is based upon a fake dossier created by Russian nationals illegally paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Former FBI Director James Comey’s awareness of this dossier and taking seriously of false charges made in it were used to justify and initiate surveillance and investigation with those connected to the Trump campaign.
The position of MMFJ is that the “Russia Collusion” investigation of President Trump is a result of false accusations, established by the Clinton campaign in collusion with Russian nationals, which were then wrongly investigated by Comey’s FBI resulting in the wrongful implication, surveillance, and unmasking of Trump campaign and administration officials.
This investigation is being led by officials who are all in some way involved in then-Secretary of State Clinton’s apparent play-to-play scheme with The Clinton Foundation, Russian officials, and American Uranium interests. Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation comes as a result of Attorney General’s recusal from matters relating to the 2016 campaign, which deferred the matter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is himself alleged to have known about the details of the Uranium One scheme and who wrote a Justice Department memo used by the Trump administration to justify dismissal of then FBI Director Comey, remaining at the heart of allegations that the Trump administration has something to hide in relation to Russia.
Motivating the MAGA March for Justice is the demand for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the DOJ and FBI role in covering up Clinton, Clinton Foundation, DNC, and government involvement in, as well as related allegations regarding Uranium One. Additionally, they ask that this Special Counsel investigate the role of the FBI, DOJ, CIA, and ODNI in interfering with the 2016 election through the use of fraudulent FISA warrants and illegal unmasking of US citizens, including payments regarding and those connected with the fake Trump dossier. Such an investigation would also examine the connection of Secretary Clinton’s illegal email server and unlawful destruction of evidence of more than 30,000 emails as it relates to covering up these matters, and any undue influence exerted by those in the FBI or DOJ to scuttle the previous investigation into these matters for their own benefit or protection from incrimination.

Warning: If you are easily put on the defensive, this post is going to piss you off. I suppose I should say that before almost everything I write.
We have all heard the saying “Perception is reality.” I am about to explain why this colloquialism is false. At this time it might be good to quickly review the following link which attempts to explain the question, “Is all truth subjective truth?”
It is fairly easy to see that perception is NOT reality. Combat veterans instinctively understand the fallacy of the saying. If you do not perceive a threat it can still kill you. Think of perceiving there are no enemies in the area. Your guard is down and suddenly your buddy drops from sniper fire. Hmmm, the perception was not reality, was it? I don’t mean to limit the logical understanding of reality to combat veterans. Most of us live our lives in the real world. It takes years of higher education to beat the common sense out of us.
As sayings work their way into the popular culture the humor or nuance of the original meaning is often lost. Just think how many times you have heard people say “It is what it is” (a Greg Gutfeld banned phrase.) as an answer to difficult to face things as if it is the final word. There is a time to accept things and a time to resist things, like the urge to beat the crap out of your Senator neighbor over lawn mowing techniques. Yep, that’s a felony. PS a $1,000 robotic mower investment could have saved Rand Paul serious bodily injury. Forgive me, I digress.
I have met well-educated people who actually believe you can have your own truth. The danger of believing “perception is reality” and “you can have your own truth” is it can lead to irrational behavior. In some cases, it can get you killed. In other cases, it simply lands a person in a psych ward. I’m fairly sure most Muslim Extremists believe they are winning the war and their cause is favored by their God, just before they are vaporized by a Hellfire Missile. If those same Muslim Extremists had received proper psychological care they and their victims might still be alive today.
Maybe a better way to explain what is meant by “perception is reality” is to say: “Many people do not know the difference or are unable to distinguish between their strongly held opinions and reality”. That is a mouthful. Translated into southern speak it would read, “Thar just ain’t no fixin stewpid.” Another quip, but less popular, is “Ignorance is remedial but stupidity is forever.” That is a shortened version of a quote from Aristophanes from around 450 BC.
Since 450 BC it has become difficult for the average person to distinguish between opinion and reality. A primary cause of this is 24-hour news stations mixing news with commentary. Opinion journalism does not affect people educated in critical thinking as much as those who instinctively believe what they are told by various news outlets. Liberal education no rarely teaches critical thinking. Logic is not a mandatory subject in most high schools. The result is students who grow into adults that cannot handle ideas that oppose their opinions. I get emails all the time with outrageous claims related to President Trump.
Here are some objective truths.
There are many more but I will stop there. Anything more than stating the facts is spin. Spin is the attempt to get you to see reality from a particular viewpoint, which is when things become subjective.
A person’s thoughts or feelings can be reality-based or they can be false and even delusional. Knowing the difference is important for peace of mind and mental stability. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, you may have experienced relatives holding various political views. The most notable and often talked about are the relatives who just cannot get over having President Trump in the Whitehouse.
Whatever your view about the President is, it is more likely to be emotionally based rather than fact or reality-based. My advice to the Left is the same advice I gave to the Right when President Obama was in charge. Examine your internal views to see if they are consistent with reality. When they are aligned you will be happier.
I leave you with this quote to ponder:
An objective truth and individual reason are feared above all. ~ Jimmy Johnson
