Gaining clarity . . .

Today is April 5th, 2017.  I wouldn’t (quite) call this a major breakthrough in my understanding of myself, but mostly that is because I don’t see how this can lead to anything.  But, I do have an idea.

I had a dream while I was sleeping last night in which I wrote something bemoaning the state of politics in the US.  In the dream, I specifically used this statement: “There are no liberals or conservatives in US government.  There are only those who are greedy or despots, and there are plenty of both in both parties.”

That needs some explanation, especially in this era of hyper-partisan politics.  What I mean is that there are those who went to Washington for the ability to enrich themselves financially, or there are those who think their idea of an ideal government is so great that it is okay to use the power of government (force) to compel those who disagree to submit.  As of this writing, I don’t see anyone in Washington who doesn’t fit into one or the other group.  There hasn’t been anyone in Washington, to the best of my knowledge, who didn’t belong in one of those groups FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

I’m not just talking about elected officials, either.  Every non-elected bureaucrat who works in Washington is in one group or the other.  Every Presidential appointee is in one group or the other.

The longevity of this partisanship in Washington is infecting every facet of society.  Christians think it’s okay to use the 1st Amendment to compel atheists to attend SOME form of church.  The GLBT crowd think it’s alright to use the force of law to compel some form of “equal treatment” from those who do not want to associate with them.  Liberals think they are being “tolerant” when they write laws that compel submission from conservatives.  Conservatives think they are looking out for themselves and their families when they empower businesses and churches to exercise greater influence and control.

EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES needs to learn the meaning of TOLERANCE.  We can not build a more tolerant society by empowering an ever-growing, ever more powerful, government.

Oh, and just in case someone cares – I’m picking on the United States because it is my home, not because it is alone in experiencing this problem.  The whole world needs to wake up and realize the perils of hyper-partisanship.  And ALL Muslim mosques need to start speaking out AGAINST the use of force to compel change for non-Muslims.


Former Intelligence Officer: 15% of Refugees are ISIS — The Counter Jihad Report — Arlin Report

The shockingly high figure comes from one of LTC(R) Shaffer’s sources involved with the refugee flows. CounterJihad, June 20, 2016: Last week we saw CIA head John Brennan testify that ISIS has “a large cadre” of foreign fighters to serve in attacking the West, and also that ISIS was probably using refugee flows as a […]

Obama’s “refugees” arrested for terrorism

The following is an excerpt from an email I got several days ago. – V


So much for Obama’s “rigorous vetting and screening” processes.

The FBI just fessed up to arresting two male Islamic “refugees” living in the U.S. on terrorism-related charges.

Federal officials caught Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan red-handed in Houston, Texas providing “training, expert advice and assistance, and personnel” to ISIS.

The Obama Administration granted him permanent legal status in 2011 after arriving from Iraq.

Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab was intercepted in Sacramento, California after lying about his ties to ISIS and traveling to Syria.

Both were terrorists masquerading as Islamic refugees.

And they fooled Obama Administration officials as they carried out suspected terrorist-related activity in America.

I sounded the alarm about Obama’s refugee program months ago.

It threatens our national security.

And the Obama Administration is failing miserably at thoroughly vetting these so-called “refugees” and filtering out the terrorists.

Even worse, Obama’s Syrian refugee scheme is set to bring 10,000 MORE potentially radical Islamists into America over the coming years.

That’s why I’m writing to you right now hoping you decide to get involved and take action to stop it.

I’ve set a goal of collecting 1,000,000 signatures this year from American patriots like you.

So far, over 80,000 people have signed the petition — which means we need 920,000 more signatures this year.

My plan is to whip up a grassroots firestorm of opposition demanding that Congress stop Obama’s Syrian refugee program.

With enough public pressure, especially during this year’s campaign, I’m confident our elected officials will pay close attention to our demands.

And believe me, if 1,000,000 fed up Americans like you are actively aware and involved, we will win this fight.

But without your action, it simply won’t be possible.


If you would like to help fight the Obama administration’s expansion of the refugee program, the link to sign your own copy of the petition is here:

How many terrorists…?

(the following is from an email I got from the American Security Coalition – Vernon)

“I don’t know.”

Let those words sink in.

Nearly 10,000 suspected terrorists were mistakenly granted permission to lawfully enter the U.S. before the State Department realized they massively screwed up and revoked their visas.

When Congress recently asked, “What happened…where are they?”, an Obama administration official shrugged, “I don’t know.”

That’s right, Vernon.

Nearly 10,000 suspected terrorists are roaming around inside our country, they want to kill you, and the Obama administration has no idea where they are at and they barely seem to care.

It gets worse.

The State Department has denied visas to only 2,231 applicants who were suspected of terrorist activity.

If you do the math, that means the federal government lets into our country four times as many suspected terrorists as it keeps out.

Yet we’re supposed to believe Obama’s Syrian refugee program uses “rigorous” vetting and screening processes?

While at the same time, Obama implies you are un-American and a bigot for opposing him.

I’m counting on you to help me stop this — before it’s too late.

You and I simply cannot allow a flood of Islamists to continually pour into our country, regardless of the reason — not after what we saw in France and San Bernardino.

That’s why the American Security Coalition has developed an aggressive program designed to educate and mobilize the American public against the grave dangers that Obama’s Syrian refugee program poses to our national sovereignty, security and values.

With your support, my plan is to create a grassroots firestorm to pressure Congress to secure our country and bring Obama’s Syrian refugee program to a hard-and-fast end.

No accounting . . .

DHS Official Unable to Give Number of Syrians in U.S. or Number of Expired Visas

A senior Department of Homeland Security official was unable to tell Congress the number of Syrian refugees who have entered the United States in the last year and the number of Americans who have travelled to Syria and returned, in testimony on Capitol Hill that angered many lawmakers.

and, if that isn’t bad enough, check this out

(the following is from an email I got from a group called American Security Coalition)

Barack Obama barked out orders and Congress rolled over and obeyed.

In the $1.1 trillion dollar spending bill negotiated by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Republicans caved and fully funded Obama’s refugee program.

And while the Republican controlled House passed legislation with a veto proof majority that would have tightened the screening for refugees entering America, that language was dropped on the cutting room floor of the trillion dollar spending binge.

Now thousands of refugees from Syria — and other lawless Muslim nations — will nest in America. is reporting 100,000 Syrians have already flooded into our country since 2012.

Vernon, it’s not a hypothetical for ISIS to exploit the refugee program as a Trojan Horse to sneak jihadist fighters into America.

At least one of the Paris terrorists entered France as a refugee.

Paris taught the whole world . . .

My heart goes out to all the victims, their co-workers, and their families, of the shooting at the Charlie-Hebdo offices in Paris, France.  I couldn’t help noticing that most news outlets seemed to pick up quickly that these were Muslims who were agitated by cartoons about their prophet.  Again.

However, what you don’t hear very many American media outlets reporting is the biggest piece of news about the shooting.  France has a 100% ban on all firearms, and these shootings were carried out with FULLY AUTOMATIC machine guns.

The lesson to be taken away from the Charlie-Hebdo shootings is that gun control will never work – criminals intent on murder will find a way even in countries with no legal guns anywhere.  The genie is out of the bottle – until everyone on the planet is enlightened, there will always be guns, even if they are illegal.  Criminals do not care what laws you pass, because they not only won’t obey the laws, but the laws make their “jobs” safer.

The only sane recourse is to respond to violent threats with the capacity to kill the criminal before he kills you.  Also, if 80% of all US households reported the ability to repel criminal invasion, what do you think would happen to the arrogance of Washington?  Personally, I think the Congress would start listening to Average Joe & Average Jane a lot more closely.
