Elections – Politics – California: I Support Larry Elder!

Angry Wet ChickenI support citizens who desire to become elected leaders.  I refuse to support politicians!  Worse, I detest with every fiber of my being politics in its many forms.  I hate politics and those who engage in politics from business to the military, from the classroom to the boardroom, and from the private sector to the government sector!  Elections matter until they are stolen and become a farce by those who desire to rule, and this is why California, the recall election of that detestable politician Gavin Newsom, and politics matter to every single person in America.  In the US Navy, when my department officer told me to “Play the game,” he meant to play politics.  To the minions of hell who delight in playing politics, I have found being honest, forthright, and valiant is better, and you will not win!

We begin with a review, for too often, people think they know the meaning of a word, and the entire etymology of that word is where the trouble lay.  Politics is one of these terms that comes with lots of baggage, tons of hidden layers, and enough plastic to choke the world’s oceans!  We must be clear about what politics is to recognize when political animals are trying to commit acts of political villainy.

What is Politics?

QuestionPlease note that emphasis has been added to key phrases to support knowledge of the complete etymology and enhance awareness.  Frankly, I would be ashamed to be called a politician.  Being called a politician means I possess a derogatory approach to my constituency and am only concerned with seeking power, usually through devious means.  As a Noun, politics are “the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.”

      • The activities of governments concerning the political relations between countries.”
      • The academic study of government and the state.”
      • Activities within an organization that aimed at improving someone’s status or position and are typically considered to be devious or divisive.”
      • A particular set of political beliefs or principles.”
      • The assumptions or principles relating to or inherent in a sphere, theory, or thing, especially when concerned with power and status in a society.”

As a Verb, politic/s is derogatory and is defined as “engaging in political activities.”

From Old French Politique “political,” Latin from Greek Politikos, and Polits “citizen” and Polis “city.”  Thus, we have described the term politics in all its glory and inhumanity.  Is the term more understood?

The Duty of AmericansPolitics is a descriptive tool used to identify certain human activities where power is sought, and devious means and divisive gestures are employed to obtain that power.  Every action tied to securing power through devious means and divisive gestures is politics or political, which means derogatory.  For those needing more, derogatory is “showing a critical or disrespectful attitude.”  Thus, at the root, politicians by their very name and nature are derogatory towards those who elect them into power.

What are Elections?

Exclamation MarkElections are the formal process for selecting another for an office, leadership, or choosing a person or favorable course of action.  Key to elections is that they are formal, which means there are rules, laws, guidelines, regulations, and penalties for the officers selected to monitor the election process.  One of the most egregious actions of the 2020 elections was breaking the rules, laws, and regulations of the formal election process in the primaries, which then extended into the actual election day results.  Why bring up the 2020 Federal Election farrago?  Because as of 25 August 2021, the same pattern is occurring in California, again!  Ballots are going missing, ballots are being dumped in trash cans, mail-in ballots without signatures, fraudulent ballots are being injected into the counts, etc., ad nauseam ad infinitum.

The 2020 Federal Election farrago proved that through fraud, deceit, and the purchase of local elected officials, elections could be thrown to whichever candidate had sufficient money to pay for the politics needed to win.  Where are integrity and honesty in the election process; they left for the Jersey shore, got mugged, and are lying under a “John Doe” in some backwater hospital on life support.  I support Larry Elder for Governor of California, but I do not think the Newsom Political machine will allow him a fair and honest election opportunity!

LookThus, the problem for ALL of AMERICA right now!  Primaries are coming, political futures hang in the balance, and the media know that the liberal madness and tyranny from COVID-Mandates has left a bitter taste in every person’s mouth.  The polls show no politician being trusted, and if the political machines are to keep paying dividends to special and private interests, then those investing in their favorite politician are going to have to pony up serious cash to buy the elections officials right now to protect the sleaze in office from the school board and Mayor to the president!

The elections in a representative government must remain sacrosanct, or representative government fails!  Yet, do you honestly trust the results of any of the elections since 2000 and the “Chad” fiasco in Florida?  I am not asking you to support any candidate; this platform does not advocate for or against any candidate.  I advocate for people; I advocate for liberty and the health of the American Republic.  Elections matter, voting is important, but politics is hurting America, and the citizenry needs to understand this concept.

Knowledge Check!Tell me, after the last two weeks of being ignored by the US President, with American Citizens being placed last, if at all, on the priority list in Afghanistan, do you feel represented by your government?  California, let’s discuss some truths; your politicians are some of the most hated and despised politicians in the American political system; they win with the lowest approval ratings and polling standards, time after time.  Sure, these politicians gerrymandered the living daylights out of their districts, but even then, they should have lost a long time ago.  Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why these hated imbeciles keep winning office in Sacramento and Washington DC?

California, how did Governor Moonbeam ever make a comeback in your state?  How did Newsom the loser ever keep his job as Mayor, let alone win the seat as governor?  I watched those elections; I keep asking myself how, why, where do the votes come from?  Then the Federal Election of 2020 occurred.  It became apparent; the patterns of winning in California have leaked across America. The same way to win keeping politicians in office in Chicago and Las Vegas moved to perfection in California and then across America.  Fraud, deceit, skullduggery, gerrymandering, and the political purchasing of local election officials and attorneys, judges, and other easily bribed public officials.

Does the derogatory nature, the hatred, and the duplicity of the politician shine through from those holding elected office right now?  Is the definition more clear and the need for sundering politics from government more apparent?  Is it clear why politics should not be part of government?Angry Grizzly Bear

Nobody is “Too BIG to Fail,” even the government, and it is past time for the elected officials and the bureaucrats dependent upon the political machine to begin to fear an open ballot box and an angry electorate!  It is time to ask who paid the postmen to dump the ballots?  Who paid the government employees to shuffle the ballots, copy ballots, and accept fraudulent votes?  It is past time to question the legitimacy, integrity, and informational security of the electronic voting machines and have transparency in voting.  It is past time for mandatory ID, one vote, one ID, and a biometric tag to protect against fraudulent ballots, stuffed ballot boxes, and mailed-in ballot duplicity.

cropped-bird-of-prey.jpgYou, the American citizen, are needed!  Awake and Arise!  Find your strength and stand before it is too late and your country has fallen an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle while you slept!  History will judge you and me for what we do and say right now; let them record we did not allow the American Experiment to fail on our watch; we fought back against the tide of tyranny and oppression and won!

NO MORE BS: More Dane-Geld

Steve Hilton, writing for the Daily Mail, published a story on the 30th of January 2021, called, “The very divisive president: Joe Biden has unleashed a wave of wokery in his first ten days that will enrage millions – as his supporters in Silicon Valley shut down dissent, writes David Cameron’s former policy adviser Steve Hilton.”  The article is worth reading for the insights Mr. Hilton brings to the forefront on measuring the newest American President.  In reading this article, I found clearer cut cases of Dane-Geld being paid, which is my focus.  America, we must push back on the tyranny of Executive Order rulemaking end-runs around the US Constitutional processes, procedures, and the co-equal branches of US Government.  More still, check your local government and look for pork-barrel spending that is purchasing support, and call that purchase what it is, “Dane-Geld!”

Detective 3Consider the last three American Presidents; President Trump issues 1 Executive order in his first 10-days in office.  President Obama issued 2.  President Biden has issued more than 30!  Look at these Executive Diktats, and remember, the coalition that elected the fraudulent President is very shaky.  Hence, the Executive Orders issued are all to pay off some part of President Biden’s electoral coalition or target President Trump while plagiarizing from President Trump’s successes.  Mr. Hilton clarifies that President Biden is using President Trump’s plans, calling them President Biden’s programs, and getting away with the sham because the US Media refuses to call out the President for plagiarism!

For example, killing the “Keystone Pipeline” through Executive Order was red meat to President Biden’s militant Environmental Dane’s.  Just like killing coal was a direct payment to President Obama’s Environmental Dane’s.  Purchasing support through government action or with taxpayer funds is illegal; yet, this President wants to do more than all his predecessors combined, as witnessed by the Executive Orders’ speed the orders are issuing forth.  Hence, not only is Dane-Geld an issue, but so is the rate of issue.  Why the rush?

Mr.  Hilton mentions the obvious mental issues the current President is suffering.  Is the speed of paying off the Dane’s, President Biden’s obligation to his VP Kamala Harris for her to have a ready scapegoat?  What backroom deals are powering the payoffs to the Dane’s who have spent the last four-years using every trick in the book to weaponize government?  Who paid for the demonstrations this previous spring, summer, and fall?  Who is paying for the ongoing terrorism in Portland?

Theres moreDane-Geld payments destroyed several nations, where the intent was to make the terrorist Danes go-away.  Why is the government issuing more Dane-Geld, and who is expected to “Go Away?”  President Trump issued 10-Vetoes in his four-year term of office.  His veto was always for specific reasons, which often included pork-barrel spending or egregious power grabs by the Federal Government.  For example, “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021” was full of issues not related to American’s struggling with the government made mess of COVID-19.  The embedded link takes you to the entire 5593 pages of insanity that were not read before voting, was not passed to benefit American’s, and was not passed to protect America.  Leaving one question, “Who benefited?”

Speaking of Dane-Geld, does the following leave feeling warm and comfortable that the legislative branch is doing their elected duties of writing concise laws and scrutinizing government?

“SEC. 7. ADJUSTMENTS TO COMPENSATION.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no adjustment shall be made under section 601(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 (2 U.S.C. 4501) (relating to cost of living adjustments for Members of Congress) during fiscal year 2021 [sic].”

Detective 4In a bill to fund the government without a budget, spend money not available, and purchase support through pork-barrel spending, the first order of business is to protect the elected representatives’ cost of living allowance.  Why?  Will Speaker Pelosi and then-Speaker Mitch McConnell please step to the microphone and explain why the hardships being suffered to pay taxes is not first shared by the elected representatives?  Speaking of questions and Dane-Geld, why is the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) not providing forecast reports on this legislation’s effects before being passed by the legislators?  If the legislation’s overall impact will be negative, putting the OMB Report off until after the bill is made into law remains a blatant abuse of power granted through the election process.  Who benefited and why?  Finally, today is the 31st of January 2021; where is the OMB report, and what does it say?

The “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021” declares the following, “… necessary for the practical and efficient work of the Department.”  I have a Missouri mentality, “Show Me.”  Show me where the funds provided are being appropriately used for the “practical” or “efficient” work of the various departments of the Federal Government!  The Senators and Representatives have two jobs, write laws and scrutinize government.  Since previous appropriations acts contain the same language, let’s use some actual examples needing scrutinization.

  1. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – Office of Inspector General (VA-OIG) conducted an administrative investigation in response to a referral from VA officials about the potential for a conflict of interest involving VA employees’ establishment of a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) between VA and a private company in 2016. – How often are similar events occurring in the VA or another Federal Agency and not being reported and investigated?  Two VA Employees intentionally lied, obstructed, failed to disclose, and the VA-OIG declined to prosecute.  What did happen to the employees involved?  Better still, what are the elected officials doing to protect the “practical and efficient work of the government?”Survived the VA
  2. , 57, of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, was charged with defrauding the United States and other health care providers in a $1.8 million scheme related to acquiring and hoarding personal protective equipment, and price gouging health care providers, including numerous VA hospitals. – While Mr. Ritchey remains innocent until proven guilty by a trial jury of his peers, this example remains particularly egregious. What are the elected officials doing to protect the “practical and efficient work of the government?”
  3. The VA Office of Inspector General (VA-OIG) conducted an inspection to assess allegations related to delayed medication delivery from the VA Manila Outpatient Clinic (clinic) pharmacy in Pasay City, Philippines, before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The OIG determined that none of these delays resulted in adverse clinical outcomes and made two recommendations related to pharmacy stock shortages and processing delays. – Delays in prescription refills are of particular interest, as my prescription refills in VISN 22 at the Phoenix VAHCS remain anywhere from 10-25 days later than pre-COVID.  What has to occur to get the VA leadership off their hind-quarters to fix the VA processes and people?  Since the VA has been broken since Rep. Nancy Pelosi was first elected to the US House of Representatives, it remains fair to ask, and demand an answer, to the following question. What are the elected officials doing to protect the “practical and efficient work of the government?”The Duty of Americans
  4. Does a 75% failure rate indicate the “practical and efficient work of the government?” The Department of Veterans Affairs – Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) is running a 75% failure rate on properly handling veterans cases where the veteran is being paid a stipend but has become incompetent and institutionalized.  Where are the elected representatives that were hired to scrutinize and hold accountable the Federal Employees of the Executive Branch for the “practical and efficient work of the government?”
  5. Jonathan Yates, 52, of Bluefield, Virginia, was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for sexually abusing veterans. While employed as a doctor of osteopathic medicine at the VA Medical Center in Beckley, West Virginia, Yates rubbed the genitals of two veterans and digitally penetrated a third veteran’s rectum under the guise of legitimate medicine. – What are the elected officials doing to protect the “practical and efficient work of the government,” or are veterans to expect being sexually abused at Federal Employees’ hands? The question is valid because this is not the only incident, merely the only incident caught and punished publicly!Patriotism
  6. Robert Morris Levy, 54, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison and ordered to pay approximately $497,000 in restitution for one count each of involuntary manslaughter and mail fraud. Levy served as the chief of pathology and laboratory medical services at the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks in Fayetteville from 2005 until his termination in 2018. Levy was suspended in 2016 for being intoxicated on duty. Following a three-month treatment program, he returned to work under the condition he maintains sobriety and submits to random alcohol and drug screening. To avoid testing positive, however, Levy illegally used an undetectable chemical substance that causes prolonged intoxication. While employed by the VA, Levy incorrectly diagnosed diseases and falsified medical records, including the misdiagnosis of lung cancer in a veteran who would later die without treatment. The prosecutor hoped the sentence would “send a strong message.” – Why should the sentence send any message when Mr. Levy maintained his position after being drunk on duty?  Did Mr. Levy lose his retirement benefits and other employment goodies?  He killed a veteran through inaction; again, this is not the first incident, nor the most egregious incident of veterans being killed by providers at the VA.  What are the elected officials doing to protect the “practical and efficient work of the government,” or should veterans expect to be murdered at Federal Employees’ hands?
  7. A former case manager at a nonprofit organization dedicated to combating veteran homelessness and a property agent has pleaded guilty to conspiring to steal approximately $124,000 in federal funds intended to help homeless veterans. Between approximately October 2013 and November 2015, Camelia Revels was employed at HOPE Atlanta, where she was responsible for confirming a veteran’s eligibility to participate in the program, assisting veterans in finding suitable housing, and preparing the vouchers to secure issuance of funds to vendors. Among the vendors Revels provided to her supervisor for approval were companies that were owned and operated by Katrise Jones. Jones was supposed to act as a property agent and assist the veterans with finding suitable housing. In December 2014, HOPE Atlanta learned that Jones was not making rental payments on behalf of veterans and directed Revels to no longer work with her. Revels ignored this directive and continued her scheme with Jones, which included opening a joint bank account where stolen funds were deposited. Sentencing is scheduled for April 2021. – By careful count, this is the fifth incident of theft uncovered and prosecuted since November 2020; I could be wrong, large sums of money were stolen, and the thieves were aided and abetted by VA Employees. Where are the elected representatives that were hired to scrutinize and hold accountable the Federal Employees of the Executive Branch for the “practical and efficient work of the government?”

Dane-GeldDane-Geld is not just monetary payments to Danes.  Dane-Geld is paid by allowing Federal Employees to act like hooligans on a three-day pass from Dante’s First Ring, with impunity and zero accountability.  Dane-Geld is paid through favorable contracts, which is unethical and illegal.  Still, Speaker Pelosi could subvert these contracting regulations to put up useless plastic barriers so COVID positive representatives could vote her for speaker.

Dane-Geld is killing America, and Dane-Geld’s power is evident in all government levels, from the school board and the animal control officers to the office of the Fraudulent President.  I repeat, only for emphasis, that the solution to curbing runaway government is to look locally first!  Curb those Dane-Geld payers and hold them accountable for the disasters caused by their poor decisions.  For example, why aren’t the mayors and city councils of Portland, Seattle, Detroit, New York, Ferguson, Minneapolis – St. Paul, etc., being held accountable for the loss of private property, the damage of public and private property, all based upon paying Dane-Geld to terrorists? Indeed, there must be a hungry lawyer out there who could make the cases stick.

quote-mans-inhumanity-2Dane-Geld is dangerous, and those politicians paying need to be held responsible.
