American Genuine

I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about what makes America Exceptional, and that would be our our heroes, the American Military branches. There are men and woman of our armed services that will not be home for the holidays. We owe them our support and gratitude. Especially to the families of the deployed men and woman because their sacrifice is the greatest. We have many Hawai’i National Guard on deployment around the world, and in some of the most hostile and dangerous places. We offer a benediction for their safe return, and we will not forget their service to our country.

 

On our island is the Pohakuloa training camp, together with Bradshaw Army airfield. It is located on Mauna Kea in the high altitudes of the volcano. This is the same mountain where the international observatories are located. The training area simulates the mountainous locations where many of our troops are deployed. Despite the protests by activists, the training area is necessary for military readiness. The military does respect the cultural significance of the mountain, despite the peace activists stirring up trouble.

 

Many of these soldiers will come into Hilo town to shop and they will be in uniform. Whenever we see them in the stores, we always greet them with a handshake and a big Thank You! After all, these are all volunteers and we are grateful for their courage and strength to do what is a very dangerous job. These are very special people, very special families, and they deserve special exceptional thanks.

As Americans, we get to set back and enjoy the holidays. As I prepare a feast for Thanksgiving day, I like to take time out to enjoy activities I don’t always get a chance to do. Like watching old television episodes I grew up with. Star Trek was one of those shows. I like programs that have a moral message of hope for the future. The show inspired me to get into a high-tech career. It afforded me the opportunity to be successful. Unlike the modern programs you see today that offer no redeeming value, and can be somewhat vulgar and unpatriotic. It’s nice to be reminded of a futuristic fantasy that ties the American values into the story.

Star Trek always fascinated me. Here was a story of a military federation of explorers and scientists. Their goal to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations. In this clip from the episode Omega Glory, the Enterprise encounters a earth like world with an interesting Constitution.

I miss these shows. Very few shows today have a moral high ground to promote American values such as Star Trek did. I don’t know where things went wrong in American society. Maybe people stopped caring. Maybe the Greatest Generation after WW2 wanted to put all that horror behind them, and they failed to teach the boomers and millennials why we fight for freedom. Because freedom isn’t free.

Lastly, random acts of kindness should be a practice year round, and not just during the holidays. It restores my faith in people and society that there is goodness to be found. In this ending clip from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, it shows what it’s like for some people that have no one, no family, and no home. Sometimes they are either forgotten, down on their luck, troubled, or any number of issues. Some are even veterans. As a society, we should do whatever we can to help. We may not be able to do a lot, but even a little does help. Aloha!

May Day Is Lei Day

It has nothing to do with neither communism, nor socialism.  It just is a day arriving from April showers to May flowers.  At the end of the week it’s Cinco de Mayo and I will be making Fajitas.  The sweet smell of success and freedom.

There is a romantic obsession with leftists to gravitate towards evil.  They wear Che t-shirts and hammer and sickle symbols, but they don’t know what it means because they have never lived in a communist world.  Even though the events in Cuba and Venezuela are western examples of what communism is, there are other eastern example where the reach of totalitarian rule is even worse.

In Arabic countries, slavery is open an accepted, yet ignored by western countries.  The United Nations, a bastion of leftist filth, approved Saudia Arabia to be included in a panel for women’s rights.  This is a society that forbids women from driving and traveling with out a male escort. There is a dress code for Arabic to be completely covered in a black burqa outfit under penalty of death.  That’s the left’s idea of freedom and equality.

Here in America, the left protests over freedom.  They outright reject freedom.  They embrace the idea of government control over the individual lives.  This slavery was all but eliminated worldwide, but is still practiced in other countries. Maybe it is because leftist don’t see, but feel emotionally.  They are easily convinced of perceived injustices that don’t exist in western culture.  It’s because the socialist society sees individualism as uncontrollable.  The left demonizes individual success as robbery of others, and supports robbing the successful to redistribute profits to those that never earned it.  It’s called social justice.  I call it socialism and evil.

 

 

 

 

Are We Entitled To Privacy?

When I hear someone state they are entitled to their privacy, I immediately agree that we have a right to privacy.  It is in the United States Constitution under the Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

There are other general rights to privacy as defined in the Constitution such as the liberty clause in the Fourteenth Amendment. People have the right to be left alone. Unless, of course, they are in violation of the law and engaged in criminal activity.  That protects us from government intrusion into our daily lives.  However, there has been an erosion of privacy rights as technology has grown.

In order to protect the nation from possible terror attacks, the Department of National Intelligence (DNI) has expanded surveillance into spying on this nation’s enemies, and sometimes, this nation’s people.  The NSA collects meta-data on communications between Americans and foreign contacts.  When asked if the NSA collects information on Americans, the director of DNI said before a Congressional hearing, “No.”  When pressed the director changed his answer to, “not intentionally.” So, which is it, we may never know.  There is just too much temptation for abuse by the government and not enough oversight to restrict spy agencies from spying on Americans.

What if you voluntarily give up your privacy?  This is the other side of the technology that is a double edged sword.  When you own a smart phone that has GPS, the government satellites can track your movements.  When you download shopping apps to your smart phone, the apps can tell when you are either near or in their store.  They can sent you advertisements and other notifications.  Social media apps like Facebook can notify you when your friends are nearby.  This is out of convenience for the person, but it also assumes the person has voluntarily given up their privacy for that convenience.  So, who else can see your movements?

Your shopping habits and internet browsing are recorded and shared by other corporations for advertising purposes.  Is that a violation of your privacy, or a the new medium of advertisements?  I remember an elderly gentleman learning how to use a computer asking why do websites have all these messages and popup windows.  He never really understood the difference between advertisements in print media and electronic media.  Print media is not animated and it is not directly targeting your buying habits.  Every time you make an electronic purchase, that marketing information creates a profile which corporations use to sell to you.  What will the future look like?

Everywhere you go, in airports, stores, theaters, elevators, and everywhere your attention can be attracted, an advertisement will popup.  This information that is gathered on your profile is greater than the information the government gathers on you.  The government doesn’t have the information technology to see your habits like commercial corporations can gather.  If the government was as good as commercial corporations are at gathering information, then they could have prevented terror attacks from happening.

For example, the Tsarnaev brothers, also known as the Boston Bombers, were regularly traveling to countries that were training radical islamic terrorists.  The government never established a profile on their activities.  Yet, their travel activities were not a secret.  This is also true with other radical islamic attacks on American soil, and elsewhere in the world.  With all the power behind the NSA meta gathering, there is no profiling to anticipate when the next terror attack will happen.  Therefore, what good is the technology that taxpayers are being asked to pay for if it isn’t doing the job it is intended to do?  What good is a plethora of intelligence agencies if they cannot track down terrorists and people leaking top secret information?  Are they so behind the technology curve they are effectively useless and inept?

In the movie clip I posted, “Minority Report”, the character is a ‘thought’ policeman that uses prediction of a crime that hasn’t been committed yet.  I’m not endorsing arresting people for their thoughts.  I am endorsing better profiling of potential terror activities.  The FBI director said they have investigations in all 50 States.  The President is tasked with the job of protecting the people and the country.  Yet, we have a judiciary that prevents the people charged with protecting us from doing their job out of political correctness.  How many people have to be put at risk, or die, because of political correctness?

In Hawai’i, an ambitious attorney general with political aspirations, sued the President of the United States from carrying out a lawful Executive Order to restrict travel to the United States from several countries where terrorists are known to travel.  This is judicial overreach and a violation of the Constitutional separation of the branches of power.  Activists judges and attorney general are Obama cronies and hard left anti-Americans.  Their reasoning is because what was said during the campaign trail, not what is in the Executive Order.  The Executive Order makes no mention of any religion.  It is malicious judicial overreach and unconstitutional.  Both the attorney general and judge should be admonished and impeached for violation their oath of office.  Non-citizens that are not in this country are not entitled to our Constitutional rights.  If they are in this country, legally, then they are entitled to the same due process afforded to all citizens.

We cannot have tyrants in black robes putting Americans lives at risk just because they disagree with the legal political ideology of the other party.  This has always been the modus operandi of the left when opposing constitutional legislation. They run to leftist liberal courts because they cannot accomplish constitutionally in the legislative and executive branches.  This is the equivalent of modern day thought police.  They will use their office to defend the terrorists privacy, over the rights and privacy of the American citizen.  It is pure leftist fascism.

 

 

 

 

The Lords Prayer

I think this is the first time in United States history that a First Lady recited the Lords Prayer.  This is so humbling and lucid.

God Bless this family and their supporters.  We need to help them be successful.  We need to make America successful.

Obsession With Death

death

Leftist have an rapacious appetite for death and suicide.   In particular assisted suicide and abortion.  Whether that is abortion or assisted suicide for terminally ill people, the left’s obsession with death attempts to normalize the extinguishing of human life.

The reasons for this diapason by the left ranges from the resplendent nonsensical arguments of “Death with Dignity“,  and “My body, my choice“.  When has murder ever been dignified?  Especially abortion where the life of the unborn never gets a chance enjoy life.  Assisted suicide is not any better because it questions if the person is truly cognizant of their request.

What if a terminally ill person is granted suicide and then a cure is found shortly thereafter?  It’s too late then.

In this scene, the son of a terminally ill father requests to be released from life.  The son grants the wish, and then learns a cure was found.

This remorse will forever follow the son, knowing that life, and dignity, could have been saved.  Will the son’s pain, and guilt forever follow him till death?  Of course it will.  Just like the experience some women feel after an abortion. There will always be questions= of what could have been.  Where there alternatives, like adoption.  Were cures close to being found.  It’s speculation, only after the fact.

The morality of taking a life, a gift, granted by God, is not an individual right.  In the human aestheticism, the gift of a cognizant appreciation for problem solving has given way over a myriad of wars and killing.  However, there are those that still believe in death over life.  Such is the nature of evil.  As there is a heaven and a hell, the left will always justify death over life. This is not to be confused with punishment for taking a life.  Judgement will be the creators final decision.  The fallacy of being human is a curse, but the gift of life has superseded death by the propagation of human accomplishments to preserve and protect life.

In Hawai’i Nei, the State is discussing the proposal to allow Doctor assisted suicide.  It is a horrible thought.  When physicians are allowed to violate the Hippocratic oath ‘to do no harm’, then that persuadable pernicious ethos becomes commonplace in society.  Life then has no value.  Open to anyone that might either feel depressed one day, or a government that restricts the number of children, or gender, a family may be allowed.  In some countries today this is practiced.  Thus the left’s love for death over life.  Humans are nothing more than a surface nuisance on the planet and therefore, expendable.  Make haste to human waste.  Horrible.

The Rise Of Fascist Democracy

democrat

Free speech is under assault in America.  Our basic First Amendment Right is being challenged by leftist that use violence and destruction to shut down the free exchange of ideas.  America witnessed the riots at UC Berkeley where an invited speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos, was prevented from speaking at the university.  Anarchists were determined to shut down the event and did so under the watchful eye of law enforcement. Let that sink in for a moment. The police allowed the destruction of property, and violence against those that came to watch a peaceful speech by a Conservative speaker.  Because they disagreed with the speaker, the fascists decided to riot in the name of democracy.

This Is What Democracy Looks Like” is the battle cry of the neofascists that claim they have to right to commit violence to protect themselves from words they find offensive.  To protect themselves from speech they find offensive, they believe they have the right to smash windows, start fires, and beat people in the streets.  Free Speech is only allowed if it follows the leftist Weltanschauung.

In the leftist world view, anyone that doesn’t comply with the articles of fascism, are to be shutdown, physically beaten, and their reputations cast aspersions upon.  The use of violence is considered legitimate and necessary by organizations like “By Any Means Necessary, or BAMN“.

“A few broken windows is nothing compared to the lives that are at stake,” she said. “And if that’s what it takes to make sure that more people don’t get targeted, if that’s what it takes to make sure that Milo Yiannopoulos or another white supremacist is not welcome or allowed to come to UC Berkeley and attack our community, then good. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen again in the future.”

In other words, join us — or prepare for more violence and destruction to your livelihoods.

It’s shocking to see how these leftist use the reason of violence to suggest their safety is somehow at risk of irreparable harm.  So I guess the words of the United States Constitution might also be considered harmful to the democracy fascists.  Many of these protesters wear all black outfits, with masks to cover their face to conceal their identities.  They bring homemade weapons and signs that are clearly manufactured and paid for.  Many of the protesters are paid professionals that travel from place to place to commit acts of violence.

The leftist news media and the democrat party have a sympathetic predisposition for these radicals.  When riots like this break out, leftist college administrators and democrat city mayors all say the same thing: “We Gave The Rioters Space To Destroy“.

Again, let this fascist democracy logic sink in and marinate in your brain cells for just awhile

Fake News

A Lie Can Travel Halfway Around the World While the Truth Is Putting On Its Shoes

The leftist media has earned the moniker, “Fake News”, and deservedly so.  They publish only the news they want you to know, and they alter the information to fit a leftist narrative.  The Fake News Networks believe that you, the public, are that stupid to believe them.

The rise of ‘Citizen Journalism’ and independent objective journalism outlets continue to grow and challenge that was known as the liberal main stream news media.  That’s because we know the leftist media has been lying to the public.

A hack journalist at CNN, the ‘Communist Nutbag Network’, who is the brother of the racist New York governor, now equates the meme fake news to the N-word.  The leftist fake news promoter wants to be civil rights victim.  What a dishonest excuse for a journalist.  N-word means Nutbag.  He’s upset because his lack of objectivity has been challenged, and because he is the poster boy of Fake News.

The rudeness and leftist activism by the ‘lame stream media’ brings is nothing more than total dishonesty to journalism.  They didn’t act like this when Obama lied and filibustered questions.  They sucked up to Obama and acted like submissive puppy dogs.  Slobbering dogs.

How bad is the fake news stories?  Read them here at this link.

Journalistic objectivity is all but gone, except for a few fledgling sites where honest reporting can still be found.  Even well-known ‘Fair and Balanced’ networks have their bias leaning reporters at Fox News. Left leaning reporters that I consider on the same level as lying Brian Williams that embellishes his resume’ and experiences.

Can’t tell the difference between a reporter and a cartoon character

I’ve been asked where do I go to get my news: it’s a very good question, and the best answer is where I don’t go for my news.  I do not trust the establishment media.  The Big 3 media television news: ABC, CBS, NBC.  They parrot the same bias talking points.  The cable news channels are no different, except they are news with opinion advocacy.  They just report what you want to hear.  Hamster news.

So you have to judge the news with a YUGE grain of salt

HILARIOUS

 

The Fake News Media Repeating The Same Story Across The Country By Russian TV!

The media is often scripted and recited by teleprompters.  Which is why you must cross-check the televised media against the written media.  Now, there is the ‘Social Media’, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and others that must be cross-checked. It makes it harder to get real accurate information, but always be skeptical of the news until the stories can be verified.  And that’s the news for today, we made up just for you.
