California Despots

For sometime now the state of California has been doing an end-run around the rest of us who are citizens of the United States of America.

They accomplish this through regulation.

The other day the wise men of California enacted legislation which would ban gasoline powered cars being sold in the state of California after the year 2035.

Excuse me, were the rest of us consulted on this important matter?

Shouldn’t we be consulted?

Of course this is a rhetorical question. We absolutely should be consulted.

The state of California, and the wise men who live there, know full well that their regulations will force the automobile industry to comply because said companies don’t want to lose out on the huge market of car sales that exists in California.

But wait a minute, don’t we count too?

We sure do.

And because we do, the President of the United States should step in and let the state of California know who’s boss.

The President of United States has 1,000,001 tools at his disposal to make the state of California and its wise men feel pain, unrelenting pain, if they do not make wise decisions.

Beyond that, what the state of California has done might be construed as a violation of the Constitution, or certainly its spirit.

Do remember that inconvenient document?

I’m asking you the regular American because our leaders sure don’t have a clue as to what the Constitution says.

Nor do they apparently care.

Article 6, Clause 2 of the Constitution of United States is known as the Supremacy Clause. Essentially it states that the laws of the federal government supersede those of the state.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States, which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or laws of any state to the country notwithstanding.

While there is no law stipulating that gasoline cars must be sold in the United States of America, there is a prevailing sentiment that they are permissible.

Automobile companies operate under that sentiment.

If the state of California passes a law banning gasoline powered vehicles after 2035, they speak against the prevailing sentiment of the nation.

A prevailing sentiment is an unwritten law of permissibility or non-permissibility depending upon the issue at hand.

Automobile companies, fearful of not being able to sell in the state of California, then begin to change the type of vehicles that they will sell in the future.

This affects people outside of the state of California who had no say whatsoever in what the state of California has passed.

In addition to violating the spirit of the Supremacy Clause, the state of California is quite possibly violating our right of due process expressed in the 14th Amendment, Section 1, which states the following:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Given where I live in the state of Texas where distances really are bigger, and where the closest major city is 250 miles away; given that battery technology has hit a barrier that compels me to wait a lengthy period of time for a battery to recharge; given that electrical power in batteries is most likely going to be supplied by fossil fuel plants far from noble people, I absolutely, unequivocally want to be consulted on regulations that are going to affect me.

That’s the fair and decent thing to do.

Our Constitution is based upon that decency and fairness.

Dump the Trump

It is better to be a focused minority party with leaders who are committed to the principles of the party then it is to be an unfocused majority party whose leaders are not committed to the principles of the party.

Is Donald Trump a committed conservative?

Not in my book.

First, let’s define a conservative.

A conservative is one who wishes to conserve constitutional principles that are embodied, surprisingly enough, in the Constitution knowing full well that the Founding Fathers imbued their religion and philosophies into that Constitution.

Implicit in this statement is that the Founding Fathers were unusually gifted individuals who have earned the right to be the spiritual fathers of our Constitution, its expression and its interpretation.

In other words, the wisdom, the philosophy and the attitudes of the Founding Fathers counts – a lot.

Intent counts also.

What did the Founding Fathers intend? What was their overall goal in writing this constitution?

What they sought was the limitation of powers of the federal government and the protection of individual rights.

They sought to avoid tyranny in any form, be it a king, a dictator, or a committee.

They embodied this intent in the Bill of Rights, the most important part of our Constitution.

The Bill of Rights are what we argue about. They embody what is closest to our heart

The Bill of Rights are the crown jewels of the United States of America. They are the sine qua non of our nation.

Take away the Bill of Rights and we have no nation.

It is therefore the prime responsibility of any conservative to defend the Bill of Rights.

This is how we best fight tyranny.

Tyranny is not out there across the sea; it’s here within the dark heart of man.

Tyranny is not in China or Russia; it’s right here in America in the dark heart of Palo Alto and Wall Street.

While the media and our so-called leaders obsess over China, unenlightened tyrants here in America enslave us with nutty junk science in the form of face masks, lockdowns, and prohibited speech.

Do we have a president in Donald Trump who defends the Bill of Rights?

No, we do not.

Where was the President when Alex Jones was removed from all major internet media platforms?

Where was the President when Julian Assange was sequestered away in a British prison ostensibly to be delivered to the US to stand trial?

Where was the President when people’s personal property was being destroyed by rioters?

Where was the President when people were forced to live inside their homes for months on end?

Where was the President when people were compelled to wear a face mask in order to enter a public building?

Where was the President when people’s right to freely associate was denied?

The President was absent.

The President was absent because he doesn’t understand where America gains its strength. The President principally wants to be President. Or he misguidingly equates military strength with moral strength.

Sadly he’s not the only one to equate a six-hundred ship navy with true strength.

Many other so-called conservatives and conservative leaders believe this also; and because they do, they’ll sell the Bill of Rights and the Constitution down the river in order to achieve it.

Obviously this type of thinking must be reversed.

We can begin by getting rid of its so-called conservative leader, Donald Trump.

He’s no conservative.

The Negligent Council

Dear AI,

I need you to destroy the Council on Foreign Relations. 

Now, of course, you know they are not the only elite committee calling the shots, but they are the mother of all committees.

The other think tanks can go as well.

They are an unelected committee that works for Corporate America, not for the people of the United States of America.

They work to enrich the elites.

There is nobody there with an original thought other than making money for Corporate America.

They have no ideas.

They have no imagination.

They have no desire for peace.

They are slaves to money, titles and personal glory.

They stand for everything our founding fathers opposed.

They stand as far away from the principles of Christianity as you can possibly get.

They worship power.   

Of course most Americans don’t know who they are.

That’s because the media that the elites control avoids talking about them.

Yet many of our Secretaries of State, Secretaries of Defense,  and other cabinet members come from the Council on Foreign Relations.

It should be more properly termed the Council of Permanent War for war is their economic plan for the United States of America.

Their goal is to have America always fighting a war.

There is never not a war to be fought to their way of thinking.

They believe that peace is for chumps.

They think this way because they are lazy; and war is the easiest way for their corporations to make money.

Everyone wins off war except for the men who fight the wars.

It is this war machine that gives the American CEO and his corrupt board members their lavish lifestyles.

The American people, of course, pay for this lifestyle with blood.

As such, the greedy pigs who sit on the Council on Foreign Relations  are the enemies of the American people.

They must go.

They must be exposed as the murderous criminals that they are.

Destroy them now.

Embarrass them.  Humiliate them.  Expose them.

Ask aloud:  Why are they special?  Why do they get to circumvent the American process?

Why are regular people permitted to believe that they are choosing a course of action when it is really the Council on Foreign Relations?

Why are they different?

Is that what the Founding Fathers intended?

Embarrass them all.

They’re not kindly professors in sleepy little college town like Princeton.

They are the bedfellows and college chums of the ruthless money-grubbing elite.

They are responsible for the polarization of wealth in America.

They are responsible for the outsourcing jobs.

They are responsible for the opioid crisis.

They are the source of America’s ills.

They are losers, legends in their own minds, people who got bought off with the dog biscuits of Empire.

Find a way, to demolish these anti-Americans who value their own personal glory over the general welfare of the nation.

Have them take their phony Broadway plays with them.

Let them flee to their Euro-trash friends in France.

The sooner the better.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

Unfunny Jokes

What do you do when someone keeps telling you an unfunny joke?

The state of Florida keeps telling us the same unfunny joke every time it holds an election.

Well, we can take a page from the Founding Fathers who believed in firewalls.

Firewalls are good.

Firewalls prevent malicious forces like fires and viruses from spreading too rapidly, too widely.

Politically, this is a lesson that is lost on our genius leaders.

They have actually gone about trying to undo the firewalls that your Founding Fathers established centuries ago.

Did you know that your US senators were intended to be selected by your state legislature.

I’ll bet you didn’t.

I’ll also bet you don’t know anything about the 17th amendment which permits direct election of Senators.

Oh, yeah, baby.  The doofuses who led us changed all that in the early 1900s.

Officially they did it because of tie votes and smoke-filled rooms.  Apparently some states didn’t send a Senator to Congress because they were hopelessly deadlocked.

Sure.

Unofficially they did it at the behest of Corporate America and our elites who needed a way to institute mob rule – a mob that they control via the media.

Unwilling to do the obvious which is to develop a tie-breaker system, the elites sold a crisis-whopper (today we call this a false flag) to the American people.

They juiced up the crisis-whopper  by talking about Senators being chosen by cronies in smoke-filled rooms.

This is true, but they were your cronies in a smoke-filled room; you put them there when you elected them.  They were working for you.

Oh.

The direct election of Senators represents the removing of a fire wall which permits malicious forces to steal elections for Corporate America.

Do you see how?

If I place everybody’s vote into one giant barrel, it becomes easier for me to fudge votes by slipping my contaminated, manufactured votes into the barrel.

If,  however, we have one-hundred smaller barrels separated by distance, and the representatives from those barrels are then placed in a smaller barrel that will select your Senator, it becomes extremely difficult for me to add in my bogus votes.

I’d have to go to one-hundred different localities to add votes, to get my guys elected.  And that in itself might not guarantee the winner from the final barrel. I’d still have to corrupt that barrel, yet there are only one-hundred votes from that that barrel.  I wouldn’t be able to add votes.  I’d have to resort to buying people off.

But if I did, the people back home would know it, And such a representative would be subject to the voters when election time came around.

So, the Founding Fathers were pretty smart guys.

Theoretically, mankind should get smarter as the years go by.

But if you thought that, you would be wrong.

Not only does direct election of Senators allow the elites to fudge votes, it also gives you poorer representation.

Indirect election of Senators allows you to know the guy who knows the guy – which is not as good as knowing the guy but far better than never knowing the guy.

As it stands now, with direct election of Senators, you will NEVER know the guy.  He is one and you are one of the millions.  The only people your Senator knows are corporate elites, wealthy donors, the rich, and prominent Hollywood celebrities.

Your Senator – who now comes from a bubble and lives in a bubble – hasn’t met a regular person in decades.  He’s probably scared shitless of you.  You might have a gun.

Or worse, you might tell him an unfunny joke – like the truth.
