NEXTRUSH UNPLUGGED:  SATURDAY NIGHT VERSION IMPEACHMENT THE GREAT DISTRACTION

"THE BIG HURT"-TONI FISHER



Welcome to the weekend.     I come here humbled by the fact that I have been in error and have made mistakes.     I am less than perfect, I am less than a Deity.

My background is in religious conservatism praying a prayer of  "salvation" saying words I had yet to comprehend when I was 13, coming out of being an Anti-Semite which is a hot topic today.

A friend of mine approached me last week noting efforts to combat Anti-Semitism in the community and my libertarian radar is up sensing the endgame will be less freedom in this country.

In Virginia that seems so obvious in recent days but what is less obvious is the bipartisan involvement in the suppression of constitutional rights.

The usual suspects like the talk show hosts raging against Governor Ralph Northam, the "blackface" Democrat.

But his declaration of a state of emergency leading to the penning in of protesters, gun bans was not just a Democrat action.     The creation of conditions like those in Charlottesville that enabled left-wing violence and led to the death and injury of the leftists appears to be on the agenda but Northam's move came with information from and cooperation with the Trump Administration.

By "Trump Administration" I mean the US Justice Department and Attorney General William Barr. The folks there are the federal  "criminal justice system" who were obviously monitoring individuals and determining they were dangerous.

Like the feds saw or thought they saw in Oregon back in 2016 and they ended up killing LaVoy Finicum during the Oregon Standoff protest?


WHY DOES WILLIAM BARR'S JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CONTINUE TO ARGUE FOR PROSECUTION OF THE BUNDYS AND OTHERS IN CONNECTION WITH BUNKERVILLE STANDOFF IN 2014 WHEN THE FEDS HAVE BEEN CALLED OUT FOR THEIR 'GROSS MISCONDUCT' IN THE WITHHOLDING OF EVIDENCE?


These people arrested I know little about, but I am open minded.

But the feds gave Ralph Northam the "ammunition" to wipe himself with the Constitution of the United States.

What's going on in this country?     I am willing to listen to outside voices, not the usual ones on Fox News or talk radio or wherever.

So I bring in a libertarian voice I became acquainted with during the Oregon Standoff who talked with Oregon Standoff protester David Fry as the FBI launched a violent assault as part of a process to get the FBI to stand down for a peaceful resolution.

Here's a 20 minute video with Gavin Seim with whom I agree with at least in part......


"I HAD THIS DREAM LAST NIGHT. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"-GAVIN SEIM



Getting back to Politics USA  more directly and suppression of free speech like Ralph Northam Democrats Republicans suppress free speech as well in the background of this impeachment drama used to make us like Republicans in Congress who are ultimately backed by the big business forces of cheap labor importation and the list goes on.

I voted for Donald Trump but frankly the rest of the crowd from Mike Pence on down are GOP Establishment with few exceptions doing the bidding of the energy industry trying to stop Russia from building a pipeline to Germany using sanctions.     Our former Interior Secretary and former Congressman Ryan Zinke told an energy industry group in the last few years that a military blockade was a last ditch option to stop Russian energy exports that compete with America's.


Inside the Beltway they call this "energy security".    


BIG BUSINESS AND BIG MONEY RUNNING OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM BOTH PARTIES STOPPING ANYONE THAT ISN'T ACCEPTABLE INCLUDING BERNIE SANDERS.

IMPEACHMENT SUCKS THE AIR OUT OF REALITY SO THIS BLOG CHOOSES TO FOCUS ON THE REALITY OF THE WHOLE PICTURE




Speaking of money one has to speak of the money from the land of Al-Qaeda and jihadist terrorism $audi Arabia.

President Trump said one billion coming from that country for the US military presence but the Pentagon saying only 500 million dollars paid at least so far by "the Kingdom" in yesterday's announcement.

President Trump announced a pay raise for the military when he signed off on the defense spending bill a month ago, but was it a big enough pay raise?


MERCENARIES GET PAID A LOT MORE THAN SOLDIERS SO WHY SHOULDN'T THE MEMBERS OF OUR MILITARY GET THE MERCENARY PAY THEY DESERVE SINCE FOREIGN COUNTRIES ARE PAYING FOR THEIR SERVICES.


THE ARAB LEGION ONCE FOUGHT FOR THE BRITISH EMPIRE WHEN IT HAD MORE MONEY AND POWER TO PAY THEM.


NOW THE 'YANKEE LEGION' FIGHTS FOR SAUDI ARABIA WHICH HAS THE MONEY OUR 23 TRILLION DOLLAR IN DEBT COUNTRY DOESN'T.    ANOTHER WAY WE PAY FOR OUR MILITARY IS TO BORROW MONEY FROM CHINA AND JAPAN BY THE WAY.


AND BRITISH AND FRENCH MILITARY ELEMENTS ARE ALSO IN PERSIAN GULF RIGHT NOW.

Wow!     I prayed a prayer of salvation and pretended I was perfected instantly.    I lived in a delusion that I was the Higher Power and lived a hypocritical life of sin.

How many are deluded as I was and have substituted pride, vanity, lust, politics and ideology for the Higher Power?

I am conservative in my background but visited a liberal church today and saw some trappings of liberal politics in the building that those who worship will be exposed to tomorrow.    They will be sold a message that is in essence the "Democrat Party At Prayer".

And then I saw a promo on the highway for a conservative religious institution recently Sight and Sound in Lancaster County, PA

It was promoting the story of Queen Esther and used the phrase "time such as this" there it is the story of a Jewish woman in Iran, get the picture?

In name of the Lord we are being led down perilous pathways with Neoconservative GOP propaganda.

Are we being sold a bill of goods to lead us to war confused and deluded and separated from the Almighty by the sinful contradictions of our real lives?



NEWS UPDATE-UKRAINIAN AIRLINER SHOOT DOWN

THE YELLOW VESTS WEEK 62-A FRENCH SCENE WRAPUP


We are past 8 pm Eastern time in the US with the Yellow Vests Week 62 post put to bed.    A look at the protest and strike scene in France amidst the controversy over President Emmanuel Macron's pension reform plan.

Macron confronted by demonstrators as he sat in a theater last night, also the political scene and an old face being trotted out to run for President in 2022.





Mercenaries reminds me of one of my media inputs of the 1970's off the magazine rack none other than "Soldier of Fortune" and the work of  Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown and a host of others.   SOF with a lot of coverage on the situation in Southern Africa back then outside the mainstream media.

"I'M NOT YOUR STEPPIN' STONE-THE MONKEES



Oh wow what is going on down in Washington beyond the big bad "I" word.     President Trump now talking about the need for new workers in our workforce and his willingness to open the floodgates on  H-1B visas to import workers.


Is he committed to containing the flow of cheap labor into the USA or flirting with the other side as in the interests of big business elites.


This look an old tweet being brought back in a recent Trump interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News.....



RHETORICALLY TRUMP SOUNDS LIKE BUSINESS FIRST BUT PRACTICALLY HE'S AMERICA FIRST WHICH IS IT?



The big business folks can like Democrats when Democrats are committed to increasing the immigration into this country and the size of the work force because that will allow for lower wages.


They like that and they like the notion of a big "inclusive" workforce and they like telling you about Martin Luther King and racial equality when it advances the notion of a bigger workforce and cheaper labor.



And consider this expanding our workforce in the last 50 years to include "women and minorities" helps to advance the business agenda of lower wages for all.


Then President Ronald Reagan signed off on the holiday that is observed on Monday in spite of misgivings but the holiday helps the Establishment, that's for sure.      The Establishment that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. worked to make feel uncomfortable and opposed in his day....

"WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED"-THE SEEKERS



THE REAL DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.



I started this post reminding all that I'm a religious hypocrite.



I  always was able time after time to look very good on the outside while I struggled with what was going on inside me.


And heck I'm a good working guy putting in hours every week working off the calories so there's good here when I look at myself.



Dr.  Martin Luther King Jr. had a batting average when it came to non-violently disobeying the law to bring about change that the political establishment of Mitt Romney's and Mitch McConnell's and Joe Biden's and Chuck Schumer's of his time would otherwise never allow to happen.


But Dr, Martin Luther King Jr. struck out when it came to lust in his life.   He was as the FBI found out and others like Jackie Kennedy found out a man who was:



"arranging for orgies"



The Good Book is filled with stories about people like myself and Dr. King and Moses who sinned as he led his people towards the promised land.  Moses allowed to go to the mountain top and see the promised land.


God was not going to allow Moses to enter that land because of his sin and how prescient Dr. King was as he spoke on April 3rd, 1968, 24 hours before his death.   It was as if the Higher Power was leading him to use those words.



King talking about breaking the law and disobeying the order of a federal judge he saw as violating the First Amendment but then reminding us of how he's been "to the mountaintop" and "seen the promised land" like Moses.
