I am not famous; I am not rich; I am barely getting by most times. I have no fancy degrees, I have never worked for anyone prestigious; I am Jane Average…I am the ordinary person you pass on the street, who never gets a second glance. In short, I am no one. But I am also everyone…everyone who doesn’t feel like they have a voice any more. Everyone who toils day after day to keep the lights on and the dog supplied with biscuits. Everyone who has been passed up for a promotion, because of Affirmative Action; Everyone who has had to pay higher taxes because the bleeding heart liberal Progressives in BOTH parties who INSIST that our south of the border invaders and the insidiously dangerous sleeper “refugees” from “worn torn countries” get a free support system to live on so they will VOTE for all the Santa’s in Congress in the next election…and the next election…and the next election.
I have monitored social media for quite awhile now. The conservatives in this country are seething mad. There is a small minority of the populace that are to the point of drawing blood, and I am not talking about doing it in a medical clinic. I caution them with vigor every time I read something about going to the farthest extremes of retribution; but there is a palpable frenzy on the right that almost out matches the malevolent anarchy of the left. So far, the scene has remained in check…but it will only take the smallest spark to ignite the horror of what we refuse to contemplate willingly.
There is another segment of our conservative population who are prepping for what they consider to be inevitable, but praying to God above, that it doesn’t. Our nation shows the deep and barely healed battle scars of too many internal skirmishes with Evil…and Evil it is. REAL Evil. Tangible Evil, and it’s growing in intensity. The Socialist Left has given birth to a population of useful dependents, those who will unleash, at the mere suggestion of some nebulous infraction by the “right”, a virulently destructive brand of chaos, calamity and anarchy. Socialism has been disguised as a form of utilitarian Utopia that everyone benefits from. I can assure you, it is a deception straight from the raging fires of Hell itself.
“ The dependence thus formed can easily deteriorate into addiction” Sam Vaknin in “After The Rain”
Does everyone know the definition of addiction? Well, let me share some of the lesser known components of addition. The following is from ASAM (American Society of Addition Medicine):
“ Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.” The frontal cortex of the brain and underlying white matter connections between the frontal cortex and circuits of reward, motivation and memory are fundamental in the manifestations of altered impulse control, altered judgment, and the dysfunctional pursuit of rewards (which is often experienced by the affected person as a desire to “be normal”)
Other factors that can contribute to the appearance of addiction, leading to its characteristic bio-psycho-socio-spiritual manifestations, include:
Cognitive and affective distortions, which impair perceptions and compromise the ability to deal with feelings, resulting in significant self-deception; Distortion in meaning, purpose and values that guide attitudes, thinking and behavior;
Most people think of an addiction as ‘out of control’ substance abuse, meaning drugs or alcohol. But there are additional, equally destructive addictions known to the medical and psychiatric community. Additions like gambling, sexual perversions and/or excesses which would include addiction to pornography, shopping, activities that involve high risk danger (adrenaline junkies) eating addictions (extreme obesity), denial of nourishment addictions (anorexia, bulimia), video gaming, addiction to social media and personal devices, setting fires (pyromania), stealing/theft (kleptomania) exercising/body building, and more. The DSM-IV-TR list these as pleasure center exciters (ie, brain function). Pavlov proved that repeated exposure to certain stimulus would produce predictable results in the responding actions of subjects under study, through systematical conditioning of the study subject (person, dog, monkey, etc). Identify a Desire – produce a Reward to satisfy the Desire. Viola! An addicted subject.
I say this, because there is also an addiction to POWER; Our current poisonous crop of dysfunctional politicians, mostly on the left, but to include some powerful career politicians on the right, more than adequately display this sordid trait in a heinously destructive fashion. The 3 most prominent motivators of our perpetual political dynasty are money, power and control. Money buys power, and power assures control. The more money someone amasses, the more power they can demand and obtain…Control of the masses through psychological and emotional indoctrination, hinges on perceived or actual promised reward of socio-economical benefit to those who will continually support that ‘politician’ and (his/her) perpetual dynastic survival…Control by the Powerful. The constant enlargement of the dependent class receiving economic benefits, insures the continual re-election of a grand balcony full of Santa Claus’s: the Economic Patrons, Your Personal Politicians.
As we have seen, that addiction to “benefits” causes the thoroughly indoctrinated populace to continually protect their benefactors, so that they don’t lose the “goodies” those benefactors provide. But, there is a cost to the individual ‘voter’ (subject) for that loyalty to their personal Politician…
what it costs people/voters/subjects who mindlessly “re-elect” their benefactors, term after term, after endless term renewals, is the ‘subject’s’ unique individuality, their previously intact moral compass and code, their individual honor and, ultimately, their very souls. That is how evil works. It pretends to be your friend, your benefactor…and in the end, Evil eats you up and spits you out. That is what it does. It doesn’t like you, it doesn’t love you; it doesn’t want to protect you, it doesn’t want to provide for you…everything evil does is an illusion. Evil only wants to USE you for it’s own ends…and that “end” is complete destruction of everything good, everything fair and equitable, everything that brings peace to a soul.
I taped and then watched the entire hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s GROTESQUE display of visceral acrimony by the Democrats, which they smugly titled a “job interview”; This “job interview” apparently necessitated the “testimony” of Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford. I actually watched with an open mind. As a woman, I felt it my obligation to hear the “side” of a woman who claimed she was physically assaulted by (someone). It didn’t matter WHO did the assaulting, but in this case it was a deeply respected man who worked extremely hard his ENTIRE life to achieve the highest pinnacle of dignity and honor as a judge, a man, a father, a husband and a worthy son, not to mention his life long advocacy FOR women. To say I was appalled by her weak recollections, her often bewildered facial expressions and the artful, contrived whimpering in her dialogue is a monumental understatement. It was pointed out to me by a woman I respect deeply, that it is quite possible she was under the influence of a sedative, due to her anxiety disorder and the fact that she was going to be put on display by the relentlessly hateful Democrat members of the SJC. I was truly torn between feeling great sorrow for Dr. Ford and disgust for her willingness to destroy a man’s life.
Dr. Balsey-Ford’s “testimony” seemed to be a recitation of cleverly rehearsed information, possibly enhanced with suggestions by the virulently radical feminist-activist attorney Dr. Ford was brazenly maneuvered toward by none other than Diane Feinstein’s staffers; Ms. Debra Katz. Attorney Katz is a women’s rights and social justice activist, a substantial donor/activist for candidates including the campaigns of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, as well as an activist for extreme left liberal causes such as MoveOn.org, which is a fully funded subsidiary of The Open Society, the malicious socialist steam engine driving the entire train of George Soros’ malevolent agenda. Ms. Katz is known as supremely clever, “steely”, meticulous and skillful. She chooses her cases very carefully, with a “keen” eye to future influence in Washington’s thoroughly litigious/legislative activities. She’s a powerful attorney who seeks to influence the direction of social justice toward the very hard left, and having Judge Kavanaugh at the SOCTUS would most likely hinder people like her. Kavanaugh is a serious threat to the goals of the socialist left in our nation. Want my opinion? ‘GREAT!!’
Then, as if that wasn’t good enough, Dr. Ford was led to and acquired another legal representative, by recommendation of that same collection of extremely partisan activist operatives, the legal ventriloquist, Michael Bromwich, who previously assisted in the Iran-Contra investigation, and most recently represented the disgraced liar Andrew McCabe, former FBI Deputy Director. Bromwich’s political bent is well known. He proudly advertises his K Street “strategic consulting and PR firm”, The Bromwich Group, as a firm that offers independent monitoring, crisis management, strategic advisory, public affairs, and law enforcement consulting services.
Immediately prior to founding his firm, he was the first Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management under Barack Obama (not his real name) and previously served as Inspector General for the DOJ under William Jefferson Clinton (I’ll bet it was really crowded under Clinton, considering he was and still is a PROVEN predator and premier debaser of women. Bromwich apparently wasn’t concerned with Clinton’s violent and predatory behavior against women) Ironically, Bromwich serves as a member of the Advisory Board of the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. How quaint.
When congenially asked by AZ prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, “who was paying” for Blasey-Ford’s legal representation, Dr. Blasey-Ford, who was seemingly confused by the entire procedure from front to finish, said I her child-like voice, she didn’t really know, but that she wasn’t paying them…Mr. Bromwich immediately informed the gathering of vultures, Blasey-Ford’s legal team was providing their services “pro-bono”…I don’t buy it! SOMEONE IS PAYING those attorney’s…and I will bet my last $1 it is Daddy Soros Warbucks (The Open Society) or the Clinton Foundation….through surrogates….of course. The Shadow Government learned a long time ago from Deep Throat…hide or destroy the paper trail and never let anyone know how you’re spending your moolah. Use donkeys if necessary.
I want to take a moment here to mention the source of organization and funding for these protestors at the prior Kavanaugh hearings…you now, the one that took 31+ hours to complete? Would it surprise you to know that these protestors were paid by groups directly beholden to and financed by Mr. Soros? Well, on her program Tuesday before the Faustian Farce of Thursday, Laura Ingraham…
“noted that the Women’s March has taken the lead in organizing opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation. “We are organizing an impactful, non-arrest, direct action to make sure that the Senate knows that #WeBelieveChristine and demand that they #CancelKavanaugh and vote no on his confirmation,” the group said. Ingraham pointed out that the Women’s March counts Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council as their premier partners, and both groups — which have actively opposed Kavanaugh since his nomination was announced — are associated with far-left billionaire donor George Soros. “According to an extensive study by the Media Research Center, 100 of the 544 Women’s March partners have received a total of … $246,637,217 from Soros at last count,” Ingraham said, noting that Planned Parenthood and the Natural Resources Defense Council are among those partners.”
That tells me all I need to know, and who pulls Di Fi’s and Chucky Schumer’s puppet strings. What did I say about money and power??? Uh huh!
Why is Judge Kavanaugh such a threat? Because he is an ardent constitutional originalist, devoted to and passionate defender of the Constitution and it’s organic written text. He is a professorial scholar who inspires his students with his love for our Constitution, never failing to balance it with the wisdom and arguments of the Federalist Papers; I am confident that he could probably cite them chapter, page and verse if asked. Make NO MISTAKE, that is what this whole Kabuki Theater of the Absurd is all about…keeping the train of Socialism on it’s tracks in our country, protecting abortion on demand, invalidating the 2nd Amendment, followed closely by invalidating the 1st Amendment, as if it isn’t already heavily restricted by the government’s institutionalized censorship Triumvirate: Google, FaceBook and Twitter and eventually destroying altogether, our national heritage, our homogenous national identity, our Constitutional foundation and our precious Bill of Rights…
AND, the other reason Judge Kavanaugh is viscerally hated by the left is his faith in God, his devout Catholic religion, his morality (which is something Progressives detest in anyone) and his personal pro-life beliefs. As a judge, he has indicated that many of the historical cases of the SCOTUS are what’s called stare decisis, or “settled law”. He doesn’t have to agree with a SCOTUS decision, to stand by it or uphold it. Personal opinions and bench activism are NOT something IMPARTIAL JUDGES engage in…well, not REAL impartial judges, at any rate. Obviously, that doesn’t apply to the aging dragon on the Court, “RBG”…(almost sounds like the latest head-banger band, right?)
The lack of civility from the Leftist hacks on the committee, the ruthless, intolerable villains Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Maize Hirono, Dick Durbin, Chris Coons and the Stolen Valor fraud, Richard Blumenthal, was shocking, but not altogether unexpected. Richard Blumenthal knows a little bit about false information: he lied about serving in the military in Viet Nam…and was exposed as a liar while serving in the Senate. He got re-elected, though, by the woefully uninformed, economically addicted, robotic “voters” in his state, by constantly supplying gov’t program freebies to his constituents. Addicting one segment of a constituency to government largesse, stolen from other American Taxpayers, certainly goes a long way to insuring one’s political survival. It’s a den of Liars and Thieves in the 10 mile square septic tank known as Washington, DC.
There is virtually NO HONOR left there. There is virtually NO MORALITY left there. There is practically NO VIRTUE left there. There is NO true Constitutional Law left there. It is a mirage, a hologram, an illusion.
I’m not sure, but I would LIKE to believe (perhaps inadvisedly so) that the outrage displayed by Senator Lindsey Graham was sincere and genuine. After that outburst by Senator Graham, the other Republican’s on the dais were given some cover to finally come out and express their disdain (or so they said) for the profoundly vulgar, insulting, graceless, wholly abusive treatment Judge Kavanaugh received through the wicked behavior exhibited from the Philistines on the Left. Diane Feinstein needs to be put out to pasture, where she can graze on the billions she and her husband have raked in off the backs of the American Taxpayer. She underhandedly (although my hunch is that she put her head together tightly with Charles Schumer, one of the most disgusting semi-human bastions of slimy politics in history) devised a strategy to thwart the confirmation of Kavanaugh, should the need arise. Then, the need arose. They shamelessly exploited a very damaged woman, Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford, exposed her to humiliation, derision and threats from unhinged zealots, laid bare the irreconcilable discrepancies in her narrative (even though they tried to stage manage it with the activist attorney’s, Katz and Bromwich) and will ultimately discard her on the side of some back road of forgetfulness, her usefulness completely spent in their despicable pursuits.
The ONLY thing these dinosaurs of distemper care about is their political lives, their political agenda’s, their offshore bank accounts, their elite conclaves and their cloistered, remote Ivory Towers of self indulgence lined with mirrored halls where they can admire the opulent vision of their stratospheric ego’s.
Isaiah wrote “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them, that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD (Isaiah 5: 18, 20-24)
In his wisdom, and in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Solomon wrote in Proverbs, “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Prov 6: 16-19)
One day, those who are working diligently to destroy our nation, our freedoms, our liberties, our Constitutional foundations and our God given natural rights in the pursuit of security, joy, tranquility and harmony will find out what REAL wrath looks like…and they will be learning that lesson everyday, for the balance of eternity.
Please pray for both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh and their families…they need and deserve it for what they have been put through.
