Sanctuary of Violence

Once again, the weakness of the designated Sanctuary-Status proves itself as weak a protectorate as those that believe that by eliminating guns you eliminate violence. This day’s tragedy is once again emblazoned with the same idiosyncratic metaphors to cover for the lies we keep telling ourselves or the false messaging that comes from the menagerie of elected officials who are as much a part of the problem as the lost soul who pulls the trigger. What have we done to these Children? Really? This Nation is going to look to the mindless labyrinth of government for relief, for composing a meaningful solution? The very camp of fools who can’t balance something as simple as a budget? The very same group who can’t seem to grasp the concept of “representative” and yes, the very same group that can’t seem to understand that as a mechanism for protecting the richness of this Nation’s promise you must never permit Illegal Immigration, you must never provide Sanctuary for those who break, sacrifice or dismember the very blessing they claim to be the allure, the definite and absolute force that compels people to come to this Country.

Subservient State; Democracy Thrives

Democracies thrive when the State is subservient to the People; once the State’s first choice is to save itself you know it has failed. The process requires an enduring cast of characters and there have been many colorful characters over the decades wearing at the core of this Nation’s structural order however let’s consider, for now, the most prominent, our chief caricatures, the preeminent fixtures of the statists, the most recognizable being none other than John McCain and, more and more frequently, the spit-bucket man himself, California’s Massachusetts-born carpet bagger, Adam Schiff. The character of a People is evidenced by the actions of its Government, the actions by those who hold the Peoples trust; this is a most humbling measure!

The Drama that is DACA

The Drama that is DACA and the Dishonest-Truths of those who sell it! A few thoughts to consider:

1. The “We are a nation of immigrants” is one of those statements that at first blush sounds so poignant and relevant, a complimentary monument to the Nation’s structure and its people who left everything with the hope of becoming a part of a most powerful promise occurring never intending or hoping to become separate and apart from it. There was a time when the richness of the bond caused it to be integral to the promise, wrapped in and indistinguishable from the body of absolute truths so much so that you intuitively understood that objection to its richness was unthinkable; not anymore.

Israel: Two-State Moving Closer?

To better understand the importance of the President’s move to push forward with relocating the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem one needs to understand the history of Palestine particularly as it relates to the Israelites (historical geography and religious terms) and the historically temperamental role the British played, largely for preservative-economic reasons, in the mock-up of present-day Middle-East.

Today, oddly enough, much of the plenum-in-opposition to a two-state solution maintains the very same preservative-economic motives. Even if resting on the historical and religious arguments it’s quite difficult to substantively object to Israel’s right to a homeland securitized by International endorsement which is, by the way, no less the case for non-Jew’s/Arab’s and while the U.S. has, since 1948, supported and has come to represent the most conspicuous solution-advocate and, we should note, without the kinetic forces of other influential States.

Timeless Emerson

When chaos, like an all-consuming fog, makes its presence known, it’s good to have great wisdoms at hand to aid in righting your thoughts. I offer you a few of my favorites, all of which are from Emerson. Were it the case that these were all I were to have ever had the privilege to read, I’d have surely been the better, for what we consume becomes the image etched in the mirror.

“The reason why the world lacks unity, and lies broken and in heaps, is, because man is disunited with himself.”
