THE GREAT CHARADE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s begin by saying this.  When it comes to civil unrest, certainly, there is no question that for a very long time there have been many injustices  happening in America and for at least a century and even longer.  We are not just talking about social and economic injustices among African Americans, but also there have been injustices among the Mexicans, Orientals, Indians, and a host of other nationalities that  have all had their share of major rip offs, trials and countless setbacks. In spite of certain advantages that have been given to these groups for many years, such as upward mobility and college opportunities, a culture of unthankfulness also exists among certain groups of people who still want to take the law into their own hands.

While states and the federal government agencies most often tend to have the upper hand with thousands of laws along with fines and jail time, sadly, law enforcement seems to be quite immune from criminal conduct a lot of the time.  And apart from violence and theft by the common people which I do not approve of, many members of government are also guilty of outrageous actions themselves, but then generally they get away with these actions regularly which are on the same level as crime or even treason. However, that in itself, doesn’t give the right to groups such as Antifa and others a license to burn our cities and take unlawfulness to an anarchical level.  Both sides need to sit down and and talk and come and reason together before our entire country bites the dust. Law enforcement and protestors need a new blueprint for living in a society that was once a much safer and kinder country. 

Be assured, America is also being driven by hate and various far left groups that are meant to topple the country and rebuild it.  And yes, this is a dark agenda that will will surely cost the very freedom that was fought for from the very beginning in 1776.  Although, no country is perfect and I do not blame people if they are discontent with their lives because of Covid-19 and the present police state of affairs, yet if certain groups of people are being paid to protest and light our cities on fire, then it is no longer a question of defunding the police. It is now only a question of how might major change be made without violence and murders from the radical gangs and the far left which is no better than the rogue police who can use military grade equipment among the protestors that was brought in during the Obama administration.  This even included shoulder-held grenade launchers and other murderous instruments which may be used by SWAT teams or members of the National Guard.  And yes, Black Lives matter, but then why is the mainstream media not questioning a dark rouge government agenda which was birthed before President Trump took office?

Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

“It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence.

Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal

Yes, gun violence is a problem in America, although violent crime generally remains at an all-time low.

Yes, mass shootings are a problem in America, although while they are getting deadlier, they are not getting more frequent.

Yes, mentally ill individuals embarking on mass shooting sprees are a problem in America.

However, tighter gun control laws and so-called “intelligent” background checks fail to protect the public from the most egregious perpetrator of gun violence in America: the U.S. government.

Consider that five years after police shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old man in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been no relief from the government’s gun violence.

Here’s what we’ve learned about the government’s gun violence since Ferguson, according to The Washington Post: If you’re a black American, you’ve got a greater chance of being shot by police. If you’re an unarmed black man, you’re four times more likely to be killed by police than an unarmed white man. Most people killed by police are young men. Since 2015, police have shot and killed an average of 3 people per day. More than 2,500 police departments have shot and killed at least one person since 2015. And while the vast majority of people shot and killed by police are armed, their weapons ranged from guns to knives to toy guns.  READ MORE HERE:

The Jackboots Are Coming: Mass Arrests, Power Grabs and the Politics of Fear | By John W. Whitehead

“Never has our future been more unpredictable, never have we depended so much on political forces that cannot be trusted to follow the rules of common sense and self-interest—forces that look like sheer insanity, if judged by the standards of other centuries.” ― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

How do you persuade a populace to embrace totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none?

You persuade the people that the menace they face (imaginary or not) is so sinister, so overwhelming, so fearsome that the only way to surmount the danger is by empowering the government to take all necessary steps to quash it, even if that means allowing government jackboots to trample all over the Constitution.

This is how you use the politics of fear to persuade a freedom-loving people to shackle themselves to a dictatorship.

It works the same way every time.

The government’s overblown, extended wars on terrorism, drugs, violence and illegal immigration have been convenient ruses used to terrorized the populace into relinquishing more of their freedoms in exchange for elusive promises of security.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. More

This Thanksgiving, Let’s Say ‘No Thanks’ to the Tyranny of the American Police State

Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.”—Daniel Webster

Thanksgiving is not what it once was.

Then again, America is not what she once was.

Americans have become so enthralled by the “bread and circuses” of our age—tables groaning under the weight of an abundance of rich foods, televisions tuned to sports and entertainments spectacles, stores competing for Black Friday shoppers, and a general devotion to excess and revelry—that we have lost sight of the true purpose of Thanksgiving.

Indeed, the following is a lesson in how far we have traveled—and how low we have fallen—in the more than 200 years since George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation, calling upon the nation to give thanks for a government whose purpose was ensuring the safety and happiness of its people and for a Constitution designed to safeguard civil and religious liberty.

This Thanksgiving finds us saddled with a government that is a far cry from Washington’s vision of a government that would be a blessing to all the people:
