Though it is always good to have a few days off and be able to rest, I am always glad to get back into the swing and routine of things. We are creatures of habit and being on a schedule I think is good for you. Never mind that for me, it helps me get back into the right eating habits too.
If I am at home and doing things and some goodies are available like there always are during the holidays, I will snack more. At work, even if some are available, I don’t seem to grab any.
With the beginning of the new year, the craziness in Congress has started. How could they even think about electing Nancy Pelosi as speaker again? They might as well put the newly elected lady from New York who says something comical and ridiculous every time she opens her mouth. Do not understand how she got elected but then again, it’s New York.
Just look at Letitia James who is the new Attorney General for New York. She’s on the destroy Trump bandwagon and said they want to investigate anyone in his orbit. Isn’t there anyone there who is not so passive and willing to stand up instead of taking all this lying down? This to me constitutes police-state tactics and must be stopped.
Am I the only one who has a problem with identifying a person by name and then investigating them for the sole purpose of pinning a crime of them? Such judgeless actions are a threat to our Fourth Amendment to be free against unreasonable searches. Starting an investigation without a crime is ludicrous, but they get away with it because no one speaks up from fear or whatever.
New York’s` laws give broader powers to the Attorney General’s office than those held by the federal government. Let that sink in for a few minutes. This gives too much leeway and the chance that the given powers will be abused by politically driven extremists. That makes them and the office, dangerous because James doesn’t even have to have probable cause. There are hardly any guidelines for the office in New York. Hopefully, Trump will assemble a team of the best lawyers including one adept in Constitutional law.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, our country is becoming divided into the conservatives or patriots (nationalism) as some have called it and the globalists or progressives (socialism). Globalists prefer world-wide open borders and seek transferring all political power to international levels. That eventually means a one world government. It’s no longer the Republicans vs. the Democrats. Most of the Democratic party are globalists.
Patriots of course as you might suspect, prefer freedom from government interference and the Constitution as it was written. Kind of reminds me of the division in 1776 and we know how that turned out. While the globalists are embedded in our parties and national media, President Trump in his address to the United Nations last year that we reject the ideology of globalism and accept the doctrine of patriotism. He also said that America is governed by Americans.
Unlike past presidents, he was saying the U.S will not tell them how to live, work or worship but ask that you honor our sovereignty in return. You see national sovereignty is the enemy of the globalists. President Trump went further and said that we would never surrender America’s sovereignty to an un-elected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy. He did encourage other countries to protect their sovereignty too.
America is in essence, the principle reason that the United Nations can survive. United Nations We also have funded them more than our fair share and all presidents prior to Trump, with the exception of Reagan, have supported it. Patriots were ectastic when Reagan reduced U.S. funding. Most of them want us to leave the United Nations altogether and I for one am in support of that move.
There was little media coverage of this speech Trump made to the U.N. and I’m sure the globalists choked over his words.
We might even call this division evil vs. good. Had Hilary been elected we would probably be embedded into the new world order. Obama was for it and Hilary would have culminated it. Thank God she wasn’t elected.
There is no level to which globalists will not sink. They often accuse opponents of racism because they know it strikes a chord.
If you are one who likes to consult google on subjects, I must warn you that most of what you find is pro-globalism. As I said earlier globalists are embedded in our media. You need to decide for yourself which is best and which side you are on.
John Lennon’s song, Imagine, championed a world without countries and religion and could be the theme song for globalists. It is a naive and narrow minded view for those with money and power to stay in control and create great disparity among other people. It’s a utopian view and not reality.
I want to add something here about the government shut-down. It’s a misnomer really because the government doesn’t completely shut down. It should make you mad that while some do have to forgo getting paid, Congress still gets full salary. I believe Congress members should have to forego salary and that all laws made should pertain to them as well. Until we get term limits, that will never change but it’s desperately needed.©2019
