PANIC ATTACK, A MUST READ!

 


PANIC ATTACK

Playing Politics With Science in the Fight Against COVID-19

Written By Dr. Nicole Saphier, MD

Reviewed by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, June 8, 2021



DISCLAIMER:  Dr. Saphier published her book PRIOR to all of the disclosures about Dr. Anthony Fauci and his ties with China and his previous knowledge of all things relating to the virus.  Dr. Saphier’s comments regarding Dr. Fauci are not glowing but they are also not reflective of the man that I believe to be a fraud since the first days he was introduced to us as the “expert” on all things involving COVID-19 and the pandemic. For once my initial observations have proven to be spot on!

 

This is a very good book IF you want to hear both sides of the different arguments America and the World are now engaged in.  Dr. Saphire puts forth her understanding of both sides to such things as the COVID-19, its origins, China and its failure to provide the world with a timely alert of the discovery of the disease, the World Health Organization (WHO), and Dr. Fauci and his medical and science cohorts.  The book is all encompassing and everyone would benefit by reading it.  My advice would be to read it, digest it and then you decide what you should think about the topics discussed.  Her book may change the way you think about them.  Did it change my mind?  No but it did reinforce my belief that most of what we have been told about COVID-19 was based on faulty if not fraudulent information.  You should know, I like this book!  I also enjoyed reading Dr. Saphire’s first book, Make America Healthy Again.  Both books are very deserving of being read.

 

The one thing that Dr. Saphire’s book may help the reader with is enabling the reader to make more information decisions as to what needs or should be done to live a health life in spite of the pandemic and virus.  That is a good thing.  It WILL introduce many readers to actual facts about the virus and its origins.  It will also provide the reader with a healthy dose of skepticism regarding what scientists, doctors and politicians may say about the virus and why they might have said what they said.  Skepticism is a good thing.

 

Who should read this book?  Everyone; PERIOD!  

Would I read it again?  As more and more information is released regarding Dr. Fauci and China’s involvement in the creation and release of the COVID-19 virus, I may re-visit sections of Dr. Sahpire’s book for clarification and reference

Would I give it as a gift?  ABSOLUTELY!!!

Military Politics


  Military Politics

By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, May 20, 2021


This past week I watch an interview conducted by Ann Vandersteel with Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Lohmeier on her evening internet news shows, www.steeltruth.com. (I would like to add that if you haven’t watched Steel Truth, you really ought to.  You can watch it live at 8:00 central time or you can view any of the previous shows by going to the web site.) Before the interview was completed, I sent Vandersteel an email stating that if LTCOL Lohmeier didn’t already know it, his military career was over.  What did he talk about?  How the atmosphere of Marxism has crept into military organizations.  Surprise!!!  I have known this for decades, not that I am bragging.  I tell you this more out of my personal disgust that it would take the courageous actions by one active duty member of the U. S. Space Force to stand up and be counted.  I don’t know the LTCOL but I am guessing he knew exactly what was about to happen to him.  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/space-force-officer-matthew-lohmeier-removed-podcast-comments/  He was relieved of his command!

He was relieved not because of the Vandersteel interview but rather an interview he conducted with Sean Hannity during the Sean Hannity Show on FOX News.  I don’t think the interviews had anything to do with his removal from his command, the publishing of his self-published book, Irresistible Revolution; Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, did!




I write this Nugget having served for twenty years in the U. S. Coast Guard and yes, the U. S. Coast Guard IS a branch of the U. S. Military Uniformed Services.  The military is the military and while we wore different uniforms and performed different missions when comparing one branch to another, the military remained the military.  By this I mean there were certain things you simply could not do.  Speaking out (or in this case writing out) against the military or going on a news program without specific permission to do so and speaking out just was NOT something you did, at least while still serving on active duty.  In fact, it was my understanding that if you desired to write a book, the book had to be pre-screened by the Department of Defense.  I could be wrong about this but I don’t think so.  It is my understanding that Lohmeier self-published his book.  I have not as yet read the book but I have ordered it and will post a review once I read it.

Back to the military.  There is a pecking order within the military.  There is also at least one law passed by Congress called the Hatch Act that put it in very simple terms, preventing active duty members from publicly engaging in political matters.  Personally, I was afraid to even put a political sign in my yard for two reasons, first I worked for the U. S. Coast Guard, second and even more importantly, my wife worked for the Internal Revenue Service which to some degree had even stricter rules and regulations regarding political activity and comments than the military did.

During my 20  years in the service, I was fortunate to serve as an enlisted person through the rank of Chief Petty Officer, then was I promoted to the officer corps when promoted to Chief Warrant Officer and eventually was promoted to what was referred to as a Limited Duty Officer (LDO) Lieutenant.  Therefore, I feel like I have experience at most levels or at least have seen enough to experience the inner politics of a military career from all angles and thus feel comfortable commenting on it.  For the record, POLITICS DOES EXIST WITHIN THE MILTIARY and to suggest otherwise is simply moronic.  A person can no longer be apolitical than he or she can be a space alien unless of course they actually are one.  People hold political beliefs but within the military confines, you are not permitted to espouse those beliefs to anyone, ever!  Anyone who believes that actually happens is a fool.  I can assure you that as you sit sharing a beer after work, you talk politics!  PERIOD! Everyone does it and everyone knows it, you just don’t go on national or even local news shows to do it nor do you write books. 

If you did to go on a national news program to discuss your beliefs or if you did publish a book such as Lohmeier’s book, you AND Lohmeier had to KNOW with certainty that the persons for whom you worked for within the chain of command were NOT going to let it stand without punishing you in one form or another.  What could they do?  Let me count the ways: 

  • Write poor performance evaluations thus ending your chance for promotion
  • If you were a reserve officer, you could have your reserve status on active duty ended, abrutly
  • Relieve you of your duties and assign you to something you detest
  • Transfer you to a deadend position in a deadend portion of the world (I’ve seen this)
  • In the case of Lohmeier, relieve him of his command thus ending his military career not to mention the embarrassment of such action for both him and his family
  • Bring the member up on charges within the Military Justice System (this may still happen for Lohmeier)
  • Discharge the member with an Honorable Discharge or possibly a General Discharge.  It is doubtful any of the other types of discharges would apply
  • If the member had served twenty years, he or she could voluntarily retire (my guess is that this is the most likely result for Lohmeier)
  • If brought up on charges, it is possible, not probable, but possible that jail time might even be an option 

Lohmeier has already become a lightening rod within the miltiary, no one will want to be near him.  A lot of people will silently support him but few if any who remain on active duty will back him.  That is just the way it is.  No one wants to put their military career in harm’s way so they remain outwardly silent.  Lohmeier is alone on an island at this point.  I’ll say it again, he had to know this was going to happen.  I have heard some of the “talking heads” on televison suggest that he did what he did to sell his book.  That may be true.  Even though I do not know LTCOL Lohmeier, I think I know what he is doing.  He is blowing the whistle on the military and the military structure.  

He is right about the infiltration of Marxism within the U. S. Military, in fact, it was inevitable.  Where do our military leaders come from?  They initially are products of our nation-wide educational system.  “Well I’ll be!”  Gomer said when hit with the obvious.  If we have been teaching our young children the ways of Karl Marx either covertly or overtly, it should be obvious that when our young children advance through our educational system, some will eventually filter into the U. S. Military.  Some will enlist as I did.  Others will go on to college and enter the military through collegiate Reserve Officer Training Corps and become commissioned officers upon graduation.  Still others will go from high school into one of the several Military Academies.  But all will do so with considerable Marxist indoctrination already included in their education in grades K-12. 

Whether they attend college or an academy, their education continues.  I cannot address what someone is taught within the miltiary academies since I have not attended one.  I did attend college and I can personnally attest that even back in the 60s, some of my professers, even then, had obvious left leaning teachings.  That was one of the many reasons as to why I felt like I never fit into the college environment.  In 1965 I made two great life changing decisions.  First I dropped out of college or as I like to think, I STOPPED college, I was going nowhere.  Second, I joined the Coast Guard and that was a very good decision on my part.  Luck had a lot to do with me even being able to join the Coast Guard in 1965 during the height of the Vietnam War, but I’ll take whatever I can get.  

My education took a turn when I read the book, The Naked Communist; Exposing Communism and Restoring Freedom written in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen.  I read it in the late 1990s.  From the moment I read this book, I began to sound the alarm to whomever would listen.  The Communist Party USA had established 45 very specific goals (objectives) that if accomplished WOULD result in a PEACEFUL conversion of a Capitalist America to a Socialist (Marxist) (Communist) America WITHOUT a shot being fired.  If you want to read about the 45 goals and I hope you do, you can read them all by going to:  http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm

I wrote about them, I repeatedly posted them on all of the social media pages.  I made graphics and posted them such as this one regarding the takeover of our educational system:

 


They have gained control over our schools and more importantly our teacher’s unions.  Why would our military academies be exempt from this takeover?  They probably haven’t been.  Again, I did not attend so I do not have first hand knowledge regarding what is and what is not being taught in our academies.  But, by extension, most of the teachers in our military academies progressed through the same educational system that their students have and on that count I can rest assured that they all have been indoctrinated in Marxist teachings in our schools, ALL OF THEM! 

Therefore, using simply logic, I belive LTCOL Lohmeier is probably correct in his assessment and I can’t wait to read his book.  Unlike the people who have releived him of his command, and without actually knowing Lohmeier, he has become my hero.  It is not easy to speak out when no one really wants to hear what you have to say even when what you have to say is right; especially when you are right!  Being right makes everyone else who thinks contrary to you, wrong!  No one wants to be shown or proven to be wrong including Lohmeier’s officers who relieved him. 

This is NOT the last time you will hear the name, LTCOL MATTHEW LOHMEIER!  Mark my words!  He is a man on a mission!

EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD READ THIS BOOK! PERIOD!

THE DEEP RIG

How Election Fraud Cost Donald J. Trump the White House, by a Man Who did not Vote for him

Written By Patrick Byrne

Reviewed by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, March 26, 2021

FOOD FOR THOUGHT ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION FROM THE BOOK: 

“A philosopher named John Rawls referred to "primary goods" as those goods you want no matter what else you want in life. When it comes to our political life, there is one good you must want beyond all others, and that is election integrity. No matter how strongly you feel about education policy, or abortion, or medical care, or religious freedom, or gun rights, or or or... No matter what your concern is in politics, you need to care about election integrity…if we do not restore election integrity by then (2022), the next election will also be rigged, and we will have tipped our way into a fascist, authoritarian dystopian version of America, run by Goons.”

NOTE: My advice would be to buy the electronic Kindle version of this book. The author, Byrne, has incorporated fact finding links throughout his book to verify what he has written about making it extremely easy for YOU to verify what BYRNE has written by simply clicking on the links. You can continue to deny that there were no election irregularities and that would be a fool’s position. If there were NO irregularities, what is there to hide if a full forensic audit were to be performed. Only the guilty go out of their way to hide the truth. This book is so sensitive that if you do an Amazon search for it, it will not appear. You must search for it on the Internet and it will take you to this AMAZON link. What should that tell you? https://www.amazon.com/Deep-Rig-Election-Fraud-Donald-ebook/dp/B08X1Z9FHP 

Let me start by also making this disclaimer.  I have seen much of the evidence of election fraud BEFORE I read Byrne’s book so I am one of the 50,000,000 to 80,000,000 Americans who BELIEVES that election fraud did occur and I take it a step further; I believe that America was ATTACKED by foreign countries on November 3 and 4 of 2020.  That is an act of war if a foreign country interfered with our elections and pre-determined the election’s outcome.  With that said, here is my review of Byrne’s book. 

It is very well written and as stated, the electronic Kindle version enables the reader to immediately click on the many, many links provided by Byrne to verify what he has written about.  His writing is easily understood.  His disclaimer that he did not vote for the reelection of President Trump makes his book and the actions he took both before and after the election that more impressive.  The above opening quote says all you need to know about Byrne and the contents of this book.  If you, like me, regardless of your political affiliation, believe that fair and honest elections in America are the backbone of our Republic, you should care about this book and you should care enough to put political beliefs aside and do something to ensure that the 2022 election and beyond are in fact fair and honest elections.  

The material in this book turned my stomach!!!!!  It should turn yours.  If it doesn’t, then you might want to have your integrity checked by professionals.  PERIOD! 

Who should read this book?  Everyone; PERIOD!  Unfortunately, the people who need to read this book the most will NEVER touch it!  NEVER! 

Would I read it again?  I am definitely going to revisit the many links provided in the book since I was more interested in reading the entirety of the book first.  The links I did review did in fact verify what Byrne had written!

Would I give it as a gift?  ABSOLUTELY!!!

Minimum Wage = Fewer Jobs

 

MINIMUM WAGE = FEWER JOBS!

Written by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, March 5, 2021

Anything appearing in BLUE is a link to a web site

 

DISCLAIMER:  I am not an economist but I have on occasion demonstrated limited “common sense.” 

President Joe Biden said he was going to raise the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour and so far, he is attempting to deliver on that promise. 

If you read ONLY the headline of that story, you might be like most Americans and declare, “It’s about time.”  But few if any headlines tell the entire story yet, Americans have become so accustomed to headlines and soundbites, few if any, actually read the entire story. 

$15.00 an hour in cities like New York, Los Angles, San Francisco, Chicago, etc. may sound like a great idea because the cost of living in those cities are so high.  But what about cities like Bogalusa, Morgan City, Pearl River, and even New Orleans where the cost of living is NOT at the same level as cities like New York?  What about the minimum wage in those cities?  Is the Federal Government going to MANDATE, REQUIRE, PENALIZE, employers in Pearl River, Louisiana by establishing how much they EACH MUST pay their employees as a starting salary regardless of skill levels and actual job performance?  Is that really what Americans want to see happen?  Is that what YOU really want done unto you? 

When did it become a common acceptance that a minimum wage was designed to support a family because that is the argument I constantly hear when people attempt to justify the increase?  I remember growing up as a kid that minimum wage meant that people like me were hired to perform minimum skilled jobs at a minimum wage because I had, are you ready?  MINIMUM SKILLS!  I also understood that as I became more proficient and was assigned more and more tasks to learn and perform well, my employer would occasionally raise my wages.  For the record, my first job in 1957 paid 60 CENTS an hour.  I was a stock boy in a local drug store.  

What would have happened to my $1.20 per hour wage that I began earning as I proved myself IF the government required my employer to pay all new employees $1.20 per hour, the same that I had started to earn through my job performance?  Would my employer raise my hourly wage?  Or would my employer just ask me to remain at the $1.20 per hour or I could leave the work place and look for work elsewhere?  Could or would my employer afford to pay all the new people $1.20 per hour and increase my pay to say $1.35 an hour to compensate me for something that I had already earned prior to the new minimum wage imposed on my employer? 

If an employer is mandated to raise their starting minimum wage to $15.00 an hour, employers will have no choice but to either RAISE the price they charge to consumers for their products and/or services or eliminate the number of employees they hire JUST TO BREAK EVEN WITH WHAT THEY NOW HAVE!  If an employee reduces the number of employees, that probably will adversely affect the services and/or products they sell which will adversely affect their profit margins.  THE EMPLOYERS OF AMERICA WILL LOSE EITHER WAY!  More importantly to people like Joe Biden who DEPEND upon tax dollar revenues coming to the Federal Government, fewer employees will equate to less tax revenues. If businesses were to close because of excess costs of doing business, that too means less tax dollars coming into the Federal Government.  AGAIN, EVERYONE LOSES.  And what about the teenagers and also the senior citizens who have come to depend on using minimum wage jobs to supplement their incomes?  They too are hurt. 

In short, wages should be driven by the market place, NOT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.  If an employer doesn’t want to pay people what they are worth based upon the work the employer demands they perform, people should choose NOT to work there and go elsewhere for work. 

REAL LIFE SITUATION:  The year was 1979 and the oil and gas industry in Southern Louisiana and Texas was booming.  I served in the U. S. Coast Guard at the time this situation occurred.  There was a huge demand for ships designed to service the offshore oil producing platforms.  They could not build the ships as fast as they could be sold.  What happened?  The MARKET took over.  Shipbuilders would put probable ship buyers on waiting lists for their ships to be built.  What happened next?  Ship buyers who were low on the list realized that they could “buy” their way to the top by offering money to buyers who were higher up on the list to switch places, much like what happens every April with the National Football League Draft.  If the DEMAND (MARKET) for the ship to be built exceeded the additional cost of moving up the list, the ship buyer determined that moving up the list was a prudent business decision, paid the money and moved up the list and received his or her new ship faster than had been expected. 

During this same period WELDERS became a premium skill trait.  Welders were desperately needed in shipyards to build ships and also in yards where the offshore rigs were being built.  Housing at that time in the Morgan City, Louisiana area, where I was assigned by the Coast Guard, was non-existent.  I eventually rented an apartment in the New Orleans area and drove U. S. Highway 90 back and forth from New Orleans to Morgan City EVERY DAY because I could not afford to buy a home nor could I find a home that I could afford to rent on my Coast Guard salary anywhere near Morgan City.  Other factors entered my decision to locate my family in New Orleans and I chose to drive the almost 100 miles one way, every work day. 

On my daily commute I would see full size road side billboards advertising for Shipyards needing welders and the billboards would include the hourly wage being offered to anyone signing up to work.  The very next billboard I would see would have a similar wage crossed out with a slightly higher wage roughly painted over.  It was that way the entire distance of my drive to Morgan City.  It was a case of SUPPLY AND DEMAND where the MARKET determined the wage structures. 

This is a PERFECT EXAMPLE of “the market” dictating what wages would be paid to people to do specific work.  The wages were determined by what the market would bear NOT by some politician sitting in Washington DC.  

Another PERFECT EXAMPLE of “the market” at work, occurs every day in every locale across the nation in the real estate market place.  People have bought and sold homes for hundreds of years.  How much is a home worth?  I can tell you by my own experience that in 1979, homes in the Morgan City, Louisiana were off the chart as compared to other areas of the country.  This was “the market” affect on the value of homes.  Were they actually worth as much as people paid for them?  They were to the people who bought them.  They were considerably higher than an equivalent home located in the New Orleans area just 100 miles away.  The point is obvious and well know to most people but not apparently to Washington politicians, THE MARKET BEST DETERMINES VALUE, not artificial price controls (minimum wages) set by politicians in Washington, DC. 

I don’t fully understand how “rent controls” are used in the New York area but my limited understanding is that THE government determines what is to be a "fair rent” for an apartment as compared to what the market could or would bear.  As real estate values in the New York City area began to significantly rise because of the increased commercial activity, rental values would also necessarily rise but NOT if the government imposed its control through “rent controls.”  Why would anyone buy a unit to rent if the government controlled what they could charge for the unit?  A prudent investor wouldn’t.  Property owners who already own the units are then stuck with the units collecting lower than market value rents and cannot sell because the incoming rents would not justify a property investor paying a high price for a unit that could not, by regulation, pay for itself through higher rents collected.  Dah!!!!! 

IT'S THE MARKET STUDPID!   It IS the “market” that should determine values and wages, not the government!!!!  How difficult is this to understand.  If someone never studies how businesses operate, they would have no understanding of how little profit is actually made by a great many businesses.  When one of the elements involved in the cost of doing business (minimum wages) increases, owners are left with FOUR choices.  ONE, they literally eat the losses they will incur thus lowering the profits they earn.  TWO, they hire fewer employees or they reduce the number of hours the employees work.  THREE, they pass the increased costs of doing business on to the paying customers.  Or FOUR, a combination of all three choices.   What would the most PRUDENT business decision be when the government increases your cost of doing business?  In my world, it would be to reduce the number of employees so you can afford to pay the increased wages to the fewer employees you have remaining on the workforce.  It may also mean using automation instead of humans to do the work which we have seen occur in fast food restaurants. Ultimately that would most likely result in less customer service to potential paying customers; not a good outcome.  If I keep the total number of employees and pay them the government mandated wages, I would be forced to increase the price of my product or service to the paying customers, again not a good solution for future business profits.  As a business owner I lose no matter what choice I make created by GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION IN MY BUSINESS OPERATION!!!!! 

The ONLY people, certainly not you, who think that it is a good idea for the GOVERNMENT to raise the minimum wage or get involved in establishing wages at all, are people who have come to rely upon the government for their income or benefits.  GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION leads to more and more SOCIALIST policies dictated by “the government.”  The more such policies are put into effect, the less freedom everyone enjoys in their daily lives.  Government Intervention, as F. A. Hayek so aptly describes in his book The Road to Serfdom, (written in 1943) leads to Socialism and Socialism eventually leads to Communism, there is no other choice once a country starts down that road. 

Interesting question.  If you believe that the government should REQUIRE an employer to pay an employee a minimum wage, what would keep that same government from establishing a MAXIMUM limit on what a person could earn.  What would that do to CEOs, Hollywood Elites, Professional Athletes, sales people earning commissions on their sales?  For example, would a professional kicker in the National Football League be permitted to earn in excess of 7 Million Dollars for a job that takes less than 5 to 10 minutes of playing time in each game played?  Or, how much money would be considered to be too much money for a very successful real estate agent to make selling real estate?  Where is the government mandate for that grossly OVERPAID individual?

Foster Home to the White House

 

From the Foster Home to the White House

Written by Terrence K. Williams

Reviewed by Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, January 28, 2021


Disclaimer:  I have been a fan of Terrence Williams and all of his very funny posts on social media mocking current events for the past 2 years.  I did not know about his youthful days and the difficulties he experienced before I began reading about his life.  This book was an eye-opener, at least for me. 

If you watched the movie DAS BOAT or read the book, the one aspect that came across loud and clear was that most of the time the German sailors spent underwater was extremely monotonous and boring. The first half of Williams book at first seems to be repetitive but that is exactly the point he desires to make regarding the turmoil in a very young boy’s life when they are brought into this world by a mother addicted to drugs and alcohol.  The repeating of his treatment and the treatment of his many siblings is exactly the point of his book.  To the young mind like his, there should have been no hope of ever escaping the abuse or looking forward to a brighter future.  Just more of the same, day to day to day.  

The title of Williams’ book nails it.  Williams went from the depths of living in total poverty, not knowing where his next meal and clean clothes would come from, to sitting next to the President of the United Stated in the White House.  This is a book about The American Dream and how it is available to anyone who sets out to achieve it in spite of their good or bad life stories.  

Williams story is heartbreaking to say the least.  He relates his ultimate success in believing in the will of God even when Williams gave God every reason to abandon him.  While on his way to meet President Trump, Williams was involved in a very serious auto accident that resulted in a broken neck when he spent all of 2019 in recovery.  His life story, thus far, is compelling and well worth reading.  Many within the Black Community will undoubtedly take exception to his beliefs and HAVE taken exception to his position on advancing the wellbeing of Blacks and freeing them from the status quo of governmental dependency as evidenced by the many vial death threats he has received because of   his beliefs and positions.  This is a book about making choices, achieving what you want to achieve in spite of roadblocks thrown in your way to distract you.  

Who should read this book?  Everyone but especially any young child currently living in the foster care system

Would I read it again?  Probably not but not because it is not worthy of a second read, just not necessary.

Would I give it as a gift?  ABSOLUTELY!!!

NO MORE FIRST AMENDMENT!

 

NO MORE FIRST AMENDMENT

By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, January 8, 2021


In the outside chance that you are NOT familiar with the First Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, 

I have repeated it below:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

There are actually THREE methods by which we could see the erosion of the First Amendment, one could be done by Congress through legislation which would definitely be in violation of the U. S. Constitution. A second method is currently being exercised by Local and State Governments through executive actions (as compared to state legislative actions) by restricting what people can do and where they can go like to church all in the name of a pandemic.  The third method is even more alarming.

 

We recently saw thousands upon thousands of Americans meet in Washington, D.C. to protest what they believed was a fraudulent 2020 national election.  You can believe whatever you wish to believe based upon whatever “facts” you choose to read or listen to, that is NOT the point I wish to make.  Congress has NOT passed any laws prohibiting free speech or the right to assemble, at least not yet.  Americans, supported by the main stream news media, HAVE used the their new found “cancel culture” to do what Congress and the Media could not. 

 

I watched a local news program last evening describe how a retired owner of a large grocery chain, Rouses, here in the New Orleans area, was seen participating in the protest held in Washington.  The report’s tone would suggest that he was breaking some law by attending.  The report may not have been quite that direct but the message it was sending was quite clear, “how dare this New Orleans business man (being retired didn’t seem to matter to the reporter) attend a predominantly Republican led protest in Washington, D.C.?”  The reporter then switched to a reporter in the field to interview people in the parking lot of a local Rouses Supermarket to get their opinions regarding the RETIRED owner’s decision to partake of his First Amendment RIGHT to attend the protest. The reporter made no mention of his decision being his RIGHT GUARANTEED BY THE CONSTITUTION!  Instead, the reporter made him sound guilty of taking part in the riots that also took place as if HE was part of the group rioting in the Capital Building; he was not.  In fact, he left the protests long before any of the rioting took place. The same field reporter then asked one woman sitting in her car what she planned on doing about it to which she responded, “I guess I’ll turn my car around.”  The reporter took it upon himself to literally declare war against Rouses Supermarket and the over 7000 Rouses employees who depend upon the grocery chain for THEIR income.  The reporter is not going to lose his income over his report but if business fails, those employees’ income may ultimately be adversely affected!

 

No mention was made by the reporter of the thousands upon thousands of people who PEACEABLY protested and only focused on the very small group by comparison who actually broke the law and vandalized the Capital Building.  It was one of the most one-sided stories I can recall ever seeing broadcast on our local news.  It’s called CANCEL CULTURE.  Politicians, news reporters and people in general have been engaging in attempting to cancel out people who do not agree with them on just about any subject you care to consider.  If you are a Republican, you want to cancel out all voices from the Left.  If you are a Democrat, you want to cancel out all voices from the Right.  If you are on the Right of the political spectrum, you believe that ONLY the Left is doing it, in all honesty, it certainly appears to be that way given the last 4 years of the Trump Administration.   If you are on the Left you believe ONLY the right is doing it.  In fact, both sides are doing it but I believe that at this moment in time, it has become a vicious and evil tool of the Left.

 

Vladimir Lenin famously described the term “useful idiots” as: 

 

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders.

 

Americans have become the “useful idiots”, willingly or unwillingly, carrying the water for those people in our society who want to banish all forms of free speech when it does not agree with the beliefs of “those people” as well as banning “peaceful protests” when the protests are not in alignment with the beliefs of “those people.”  American Useful Idiots have in fact accomplished what those on the Government’s Left could not do, nullify the first amendment by shaming everyone who does not agree with those on the Left.  Immediately following the DC riots, we saw Republicans who were on record as going to vote against certifying some of the electorial votes because of potential fraud, suddenly change their vote because they were shamed into changing their vote.  If there was fraud, you would think EVERY politician would want it to stop but that obviously is not the case.  You may find an isolated case of someone from the Right doing such things but the predominance of this behavior is definitely coming from the Left and far more importantly being reinforced by repeated news media broadcasts and commentaries.  The Bill of Rights has been under attack by the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for decades because the Bill of Rights is a definite threat to their power and access to the millions of dollars that have enriched their personal lives and the lives of their families. 

 

You may not agree with this assessment, frankly, I don’t give a damn what you think!  I believe it to be true.  I also am well aware that in 1965 I took an oath to defend, with my life if necessary, the Constitution of the United States.  I only wish the members of Congress would pay more attention to the oath THEY all took to do the same. 

 

At the current rate, our personal rights and freedoms WILL become a thing of the past.  Like it or not, those rights and freedoms are what have made America what it is, a fantastic place to live.  It has also made it a target of Communism and Socialism as well as a destination goal for millions from around the world as a place they desire to live.  People want to live here because of those rights and freedoms, the very rights and freedoms that American Useful Idiots are actively trying to destroy.

 

I am afraid that the Useful Idiots will eventually win out because not only do they have politicians on the Left pushing the agenda, they have the main stream media also pushing the agenda AND more importantly Left supporting local, state and Federal judges.  The fix is in and most people have no clue what they are doing.  The elites of the world have wanted a one-world-government even before WWII.  The ONE country that stood in the way of that happening was America and more importantly Americans. Sadly, that is all changing before our very eyes.  Communist China, Communist Russia, Communist North Korea and don’t be fooled by the Islamic roots, Communist Iran and others ARE working together to take America down and they are doing it WITH the help of American Useful Idiots!

 

I truly feel sorry not only form my own family and family to be, I also feel very sorry for countries like Great Britain, France, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and many other freedom loving countries because if America ever is lost to Socialism/Communism, there will be no one to stand in the way of their eventual Communist domination.

 

Are you a Useful Idiot?  If you answered no, are you sure?
