            It would seem that the current occupant of the White House is more interested in his legacy than anything else.   It comes before the national security, it comes before the national economy and it comes before anything the American public might have to say.  Many times he has been referred to as delusional because of the way he prioritizes things.   Global warming or climate change, which most Americans think of as the changing of the seasons, is said to be the most threatening to the world.   That’s a very interesting concept, but it has one huge hole in the middle of it…the rest of the developing nations of the world don’t seem to give a damn about what sort of pollution they are spewing out.   A volcano, such as Mount St. Helens, can erupt pretty much with little or no warning, throwing lava and ash all over the place, killing people, plants and animals, with the clouds of ash moving around the earth a couple of times perhaps, before they are disbursed.
            I’ll not bore you again with the definition of delusional…but he certainly fits the bill.   If you keep doing the same thing you’ll get the same results, so the old saying goes, and if you think things will turn out differently then you have a problem with reality.   Our current man in the Oval Office keeps slicing and dicing the population into neat little groups and then pitting them one against another…all the while proclaiming that he’s doing quite the opposite.   There hasn’t been, in my memory, a holder of the highest office in the land, that has caused so much pain and suffering, deliberately.   Yes, he has company in that respect…there is Louis Farrakhan, the New Black Panthers, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, just to name a few.   Do they really want a race war in the United States?   My answer is yes, and sadly, it would be bloody, and short-lived.   If you put a white person next to a black person it’s easy to distinguish one from another, so in a war of the races the “enemy” of whichever side you’re on, is easy to spot.
            Part of the continuing efforts on the part of this person, and his administration, is to not just divide and conquer the United States, but to do so with a private, compliant military.   Any officer in the military in the recent past has probably been asked a few questions, the nature of which would indicate if he or she would follow orders or disobey them when it came to making war on the American public.   From the hollowing-out of the armed forces, to the point where I seriously doubt their ability to defend the homeland, to the obvious militarization of the police forces around the country, to the multi-state maneuvers such as Jade Helm 15, it smacks of “something” going on.   That something that is going on is something that the American public is only vaguely noticing because their attention is being drawn to a different “shiny object”.
            The DKDC syndrome, or “don’t know don’t care” is rampant in America and if you are lucky enough to see some of the “man-in-the-street” interviews by various reporters you might recoil in horror to see just how stupid some(most?) Americans really are.   This too, is part of the imposter-in-chief’s legacy, but to be honest, it has been going on for three, maybe four, generations now.   The potheads and “free thinkers” of the 1960’s and 1970’s are now teachers, college deans and university professors freely throwing out their screwball ideas.   Some students, to be sure, will question the lessons…and like as not they will flunk the course in the most serious of cases, and in the least serious, be questioned and humiliated in front of everyone else.   The phrase of
useful idiot is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.  
            These sorts of people are groomed, sometimes for decades, to serve a purpose.
That purpose could be to vote the proper way, to make sure that something happens or doesn’t happen, maybe to be “moles” and only surface in the case of an insurrection which could be fomented from the highest office in the land.   The people that were previously mentioned, whom have been called race-baiters, are only too happy to serve in that capacity.   Through various means they influence the ignorant to serve.   We’ve seen that these people can stir crowds to becoming mobs.  By the way, mob rule could be considered as part and parcel of a democracy.   A republic, on the hand, is an entirely different animal.   This country, according to the US Constitution, runs on the concept of the government can only do what the people permit it to do.   That’s basically the difference between a democracy and a republic.
            Far too many people are willing to accept a lawless government…and the end result of that will be a dictatorship.   Wake up America!

I’m not a political expert.  I didn’t stay at a motel chain and pretend that I am one, but I do have an opinion.   On the Confederate flag…that’s one of those 15 minutes of fame things.   The people who see nothing wrong with it, you stand over here, and the people that see that it represents hate, you stand over there.   This is the way it’s been and I’ll bet a steak dinner that this is the way it’s going to remain.  Oh sure, one side or the other may gain or lose a few people but by and large it will remain as I’ve described it.   In the market place you have(or had) a choice…you could buy a Confederate flag or not.   Now, due to mass hysteria, that choice has been taken away.
            Another non-story is anything concerning that pipsqueak, Ariana Grande.   Just tell her that if she dislikes this country so much, get the hell out and find another that suits her.   As a matter of fact, nothing about celebrities is of interest when compared to national defense.   The main character in Fiddler On The Roof observes that if you’re rich they think you know, and that’s nowhere near being true.   If you listen to some of these celebrities they sound like idiotic children, complete with bad grammar.
            The sworn enemy of the United States (and no, I’m not talking about the President this time), is patiently waiting for us to implode.   The story goes that a high-echelon Imam said that the west has watches, while Islam has the calendar.   Another interpretation of that means that if something takes one hundred years to accomplish, they will take the time to get it done.   So, if you’re assigning priorities, the safety of the country should be number one…because if that fails, everything else doesn’t matter.  In our dealings with Iran we have Tweedle dee and Tweedle dum in charge.   While Iran’s top guys are yelling “Death To America” and “Death To Israel” we’re giving away the farm and allowing them to continue on the path to obtaining a nuclear weapon…or several…while declaring that climate change is the biggest threat.
            Now a few words about that San Francisco murder recently.    He’s in San Francisco because it’s a sanctuary city and, if you don’t know what that is, a sanctuary city is a term given to a city in the United States or Canada that follows certain practices that protect Illegal immigration.   The term generally applies to cities that do not allow municipal funds or resources to be used to enforce federal immigration laws, usually by not allowing police or municipal employees to inquire about an individual's immigration status.   The recent murder of a woman in San Francisco, by an illegal alien(who had been deported 5 times and had a rap sheet a mile long) was a good example.  He chose San Francisco because it IS a sanctuary city.   Since there were eyewitnesses, and he has confessed to the shooting, there is no need for a trial.  Take him to the back of the jail, he can either kneel or stand, and you put one large-caliber bullet in the back of his head.  Period.  No long drawn-out trial, no feeding and taking care of him, and definitely no chance he’ll ever do that, or anything else, ever again.
            In another instance of a non-story, the changing of team names.  The other day, president Obama demonstrated the ability of a president to issue an executive order, regardless of how beleaguered he happens to be. Or, apparently, regardless of how little sense it makes.   He said in a speech ..."How can we hope to secure the blessings of democracy on foreign lands if the bombs we drop on them have hurtful, outmoded names," said the president. "Therefore I have issued an executive order, effective immediately, changing the name of the Tomahawk Cruise Missile to the Freedom Missile."   I find that rather curious. The United States Navy owns roughly 3,500 Tomahawk cruise missiles of all types. Their combined worth is $2.6 billion. The Navy estimates that "rebranding" these missiles will cost nearly $3.5 million.   So, my friends and fellow citizens, you now understand one more reason why your taxes are so high in this great land of ours. But I am still wondering something. I really do not understand how the name of the bomb is gonna matter to someone when we drop it on them.   They ain't gonna like it much no matter what we call the damn thing.   Oh well, I'm not the president…but if I was things would be different!  Why is it, I wonder, that it takes a national tragedy to pull us together?   Another thing that I find curious and that is that the United States doesn’t ordinarily make the first strike.  That, in itself, could be fatal, or nearly so.

Let me repeat what I’ve put down here before…the clinical definition of delusional: “a false belief that is firmly maintained in spite of incontrovertible and obvious proof to the contrary and in spite of the fact that other members of the culture do not share the belief.”  Once again, my friends, the evidence is overwhelming…we have a madman at the helm of the ship of state.  Never in my memory have we had a person so anti-American in such a powerful position.   To make a claim that, because of him, the United States is “the most respected in the world”, would prove to even a psychology student in their first term that he is out of his mind.
            The United States is the laughing stock of the world now.  No longer feared, no longer trusted and no longer fiscally sound because of the actions of a crazy person.  In anyone’s wildest dreams to think that the United States could sink into the depths to which we have, would be truly unthinkable.   In two horrific terms the imposter has brought America to its knees, following an agenda of a mixture of socialism, communism and anti-colonialism which was his upbringing.  His mentors included outright Communists, Socialists, with written instructions, and bombers of national edifices.   He was selected somewhere along the way, and deliberately groomed to become the President, making him our very own Manchurian Candidate and President.
            In his befogged mind, he believes that he can talk to our sworn enemies and that they will either capitulate or, at the very least, make nice to the United States.   Only a delusional mind would believe that.   Only a puppet, operated by people behind the scenes, would make the decisions that he has…decimating the armed forces, while at the same time desiring illegal, hostile, aliens to serve…to force upon the public a health care system that is unworkable, while stating that it was all good…to have an agency which is supposed to be completely non-political, attack any and all who dare to dissent with his craziness.
            This is a man who says one thing, depending upon his audience, and then turns around and does exactly the opposite.  He mouths the words that he, and the United States, are backing Israel, while proposing that they stop retaliating against the rockets and terror attacks that come out of Gaza and the West Bank.   He decried and railed against the so-called “fat cats” in the American while living the high life on the taxpayer’s money.   There is nothing, as far as one can see, that is truthful about this man.   There is serious doubt about this man’s birthplace, where he went to schools, and as a matter of fact, if he attended any of the colleges and universities that he claims to have attended.
            This complete lack of information leads me to call him The Prince Of Darkness because no one can shed any light on his life in any significant manner.   He’s had questionable dealings with a real estate person, Tony Rezko…he’s been a 20 year member of a church that espouses hatred of the United States, but he claims never to have heard any of that…he surrendered his law license in the state of Illinois and no one ever asked why…there are semi-factual stories about his involvement in questionable sexual activities while a member of that same church.   In a nation where information is instantly available on all sorts of places on the internet and social networks, he remains, basically, a man of mystery.
            Whoever the next president may be, and I sincerely hope it will be a sensible one from either side of the political aisle, will have a massive job to do, trying to undo the damage that his or her predecessor has wrought.   If the programs, rules, regulations and executive orders that the current delusional in the White House has promulgated are allowed to run, there is no way the United States can survive.   One of the countries that are potential enemies now might become our real enemy and we are powerless to do anything to stop them.   Our professional military leaders, both active and retired, have said that the military is simply a paper tiger now, hollowed-out and possibly might not be willing to fight for the country they swore to defend.
            Swearing to defend…now, there’s a phrase we might look at a bit closer.  Every president, bar none, has taken the oath “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”   If
anyone can deny that the current President has ignored that oath, let him or her step forward.  Upon questioning that individual one could make the assumption that they are also delusional, along with Dear Leader.   How long can America continue to proceed down a path led by the pie-eyed piper?   If you love this America, you are urged to rise up, speak up, do something to unseat this delusional man and his cronies.

Larry’s blog for July 6, 2015  As the list of Republican candidates for President grows, so does my curiosity about them.   As has been stated by many, there is no such thing as a perfect candidate, so you pay attention to the ones that most mirror your thinking.  Right now everybody is throwing out catch-phrases and sound bites to get on the news, and it’s difficult, at least to me, to know what their true belief system is…except for one or two.
            Were I candidate, there would be very short speeches, but my positions would be crystal clear…a complete change in the tax system…a strong, smart, military…take the offensive action to the enemy wherever they are and eliminate them…a sealed southern border…a systematic deportation of illegal aliens…term limits for all federal positions on a national level…no lobbying allowed…all potential bills must be shorter than 200 pages and no riders or attachments allowed.  There probably would be others, as time went by, but you can see where it’s going.   America has to come back from where it’s been put, or the world will suffer.
            What would the world be like if, or when, America has to surrender?  To what would it surrender?   Economically, we may have already surrendered, what with the dollar being replaced as the go-to backup currency in the world.   Militarily, we may have already surrendered, since it’s been said by top military personnel, that we could not fight a long war, possibly on two fronts or foreign lands.   Politically we definitely have surrendered with a lying, incompetent, possibly foreign-born person in the White House whose elections have been made possible by smear campaigns and massive voter fraud, and whose background is opaque.
            Once, when I thought I would run for Mayor of the city in which I lived, one of my opponents(the ultimate winner) said that I didn’t have an original thought in my head…and, to a degree he was right.  My reply was to say that so many people, much smarter than I, had already said good things that we didn’t pay any attention to, that it was a shame.  Here is one of those things, a speech by Teddy Roosevelt, and he said…
“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all.   This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance.   But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as anyone else.
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English- Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian- Americans, or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality than with the other citizens of the American Republic.   The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American.”
Theodore Roosevelt, addressing the Knights of Columbus, New York City- October 12th, 1915.   Folks, it doesn’t get any clearer than that.  If you ask a black person what he or she is, chances are good that they will tell you they are African-American.  If you quiz them about what part of Africa they came from you’ll find out that they didn’t come from Africa at all!   Any immigrant, legal or illegal, that finds this country’s traditions and values offensive should be shipped out, PDQ, to whatever place they seem to prefer.
