Trump FightingFor Our Lives

Germany is hashing out new reforms to their immigration laws so that ‘skilled’ immigrants need only apply.  Australia has been on board for years authorizing only those who can contribute to society and prove their educational background.   Of course, both these countries are quite vocal when it comes to ‘other countries’ human rights requirement to compel the ushering of illegals across the border so that more residents can see their earned income dwindle further as welfare spikes, Medicaid spikes, and crime spikes.

MSM continues to attempt to recreate the issue as an immigration right that has been the creation of societies for centuries, including the US.  Just look at ethnicity?  A jambalaya of European descent mixed together to form an ‘American’. Ta-Da!   Of course, the obvious being that immigrants came, registered, conformed to legal requirements, desired to be “American” and abide by American laws, customs, and language.   And yes, it was good!

While MSMS knows their point is off-center, they continue to hash it over and over hoping that those supporting immigration will not understand the difference.  It is the power of persuasion.   In the sixties they used the power of persuasion at drive-in movie theatres whereby they subliminally imposed pictures of soft drinks, candy, popcorn and the like within an embedded screen shot to enhance the desire to buy the products.

Germany is in a crisis. They have a severe shortage of qualified, skilled workers.  The birth rate has been tanking for decades, their workers are aging and retiring, and no one can fill the void.  Somehow, Soros was able to convince Merkel that ushering in millions of illegal ‘refugees’ would solve Germany’s rising problem.

She complied.

Then Soros laughed and told Merkel and the world she was an idiot for ushering in unskilled, millions of refugees.

So now Merkel is trying to fast track deportations of illegal immigrants while curling her lips at Trump and demanding her fractured government create new and improved immigration reform laws to encourage only the educated elite to move to Germany.

So the MSM is trying to skew the diversity angle by claiming that diversity is good for sports, particularly, soccer…  In other words, German soccer players are a dying breed given the failing birthrates and the exodus of youth, therefore it is necessary to import soccer players from other countries and give them immediate national status so they can play as Germans.  Apparently the majority are imported from Turkey.

This is how convoluted the immigration policies have become.  “We believe in immigration as long as it benefits us…”

A rather nationalist statement.

But of course, they can’t have such a statement reprinted in the media.

The markets have reacted.

While the news has failed and/or omitted journalistic reporting on economic conditions around the world, the markets have reacted.  Not necessarily to the US economy, but instead to the desperation experienced in the EU and China.   With Trump’s reversal of supporting these economies, tax relief, and regulation reversals, the US economy has sprinted – but at the cost of those countries we have held up for decades.   Their economies depended on US $$$$ to fund their debt, to fund their militaries, to fund their taxes, to fund their stability.   With the rugs yanked, they need to fend for themselves and are spinning with their proverbial feet in the air as the attempt to balance the inevitable fall.

The economies of these competitive nations could not have reaped the rewards without US taxpayers funding their tariffs, their goods, services, and militaries.  As that money is banked, they begin to tumble without relief.   Of course it effects the US stock market!

Everyone who has been in the market field knows it tanks for two reasons;  fear and manipulation.  Even the Great Depression was based on these two technicalities.   If you were to maintain a log of the headliners issued by the ‘market gurus’ over a period of a year, they have absolutely no clue, they simply create a reason for a downturn or upturn, only to redefine it a day or week later.  Sometimes it is like listening to the weatherman tell you that it is sunny outside yet your view is gray and snowy… And you wonder where the heck are they sitting!

The percentage of people that believe the media is a hoax and manipulated is rising exponentially, some numbers reveal as high as 75-80%, we are becoming more aware, more adept at searching out headlines, and more skeptical.   That’s a good thing!

Be wary.  Be faithful.  Trump does want America to be Great Again.  And no one else could possibly work nearly as hard, and take near the abuse.  And survive. But he can’t do it without US.  If we give up, we become the caste sheep – and that ain’t good! 

HOPE For A Caste Sheep

I’ve been trying to write a really dazzling, intellectually stimulating blog about the economy, or the shadows, or the political mire, or corruption or whatever catches my attention… But nothing really does. It all seems like a rehash of the same story with a few edits, a paragraph shift, versed synonyms, and in the end, it’s all the same.

I’ve written countless starts and yet my mind continually returns to one story. The story of a Fall, a fall from grace, a fall so incredibly steep and perilous that it catches my breath because I just don’t understand.   It is a story where hope is dragged back to the heart only to be thrashed again. And still, and yet, this flicker of hope seems to never be fully extinguished.

The story is about the pervasiveness of man in inflicting pain – with intention, with justification, and even with – glee. How far into Hell does a soul fall where pure depravity becomes an obsession that consumes the last bit of life? Where Destruction is measured as the fruit? Where once there was a soul, somewhere, but where the cracks opened to crevices, and there was nothing left of the shredded mask?

Where a person once lived.

It’s not the terrorist. It’s not the murderer. It’s not the rapist or the child molester. It’s not the prostitute or sex trafficker or acid attacker. It’s simply the person standing next to you. A person you trusted. A person with whom you shared a life. And yet it isn’t a person at all. At least, not any longer. It is the worst form of deception imaginable.

And yet despite the terror inflicted, despite their absolute desire for total ruin, there lingers, unbelievably, hope. Hope that they will somehow be witness to their malicious will, and just – stop.

Days pass. Weeks and months. And still you can’t perceive of the depth of the evil that must consume every cell, every coding, that could cause a person to act in such a way.   Perhaps it is a form of insanity?   Or is that an excuse, a justification, an out, when in fact – sometimes there is no fortuitous end, there is no cure, and that person is beyond even – Hope?

What does one do with such a loss? What does one do when the slashings are unrelenting? When the desire is immortal death? God says that all souls are savable… but not all souls are saved.   And never will be.   And while that may be how it is, God also reminds us to never give up, for even the most vile, the most sinful, can repent, and their stores of death and bitterness can be filled with an abundance of love – visible in their countenance, their deeds, and in their heart.

Of course it is so much easier to observe when you are not the target of the knife, when it hasn’t pierced your flesh, when the slashings are perpetrated somewhere else, on someone else. Then we suddenly become experts on how to assess and analyze and suture the wounds.

Listlessly, we ask the question that forever remains – why? Why do you desire this? What happened to your soul? Maybe you never had one… The veil is lifted. The mask melted by the Son. And when the cracks begin to spread through and across the dead earth that is your flesh, there is nothing to hold your bones intact, your muscle entwined, and you simply spill away into a living death.

And the wasteland that is left, is set aflame.

In all this there is a caveat. If a person hasn’t God, then in whom does he place Hope? In one self? In a mortal being flawed and imperfect? In the government? Where do you find your Hope? Without God, Hope would be so small, so fragile, easily broken, tragically barren.

And so, despite the continued slashings, the depravity, the obsessive malice, I drag myself back up, I stand and stare into the golden sun and decry, I HAVE HOPE…still. Today, I still have hope that this person’s soul will be brought to repentance and humility and set me free, and I will bleed no more. I have Hope because God stands with me in His power, His mercy, His grace.

I have Hope because God is perfect and man is so very imperfect, but even in man’s imperfection miracles can be, as the Shepherd guides, tends, and rights the caste sheep.   And so I ask, I pray, that God would right the caste sheep that has fallen from grace, and mold once again a heart to set me free.
