(OR: The Political vibrations are unnerving. )
Before we discuss the domestic scene, have you noticed how the low price of oil is causing our foreign enemies to gasp for air. Look at what it is doing to Venezuela. Socialism, without easy money, collapses. Look at Saudi Arabia pulling the U.S. rug on Al Jazeera, their propaganda news service. Just not enough money for all the freebies. You will be able to observe even more trouble when Iran tries to peddle all its oil currently stored in multiple tankers. It is wonderful to watch. Take their income away and watch them squirm. It should be the new way to fight.
Now, the domestic scene. What is happening with Bernie Sanders and Brun-Hilda Clinton? What is happening in the GOP multi-headed elephant.? The polls are Shocked, they say Shocked about what they find? It is necessary to read all the small articles, listen to the main stream, and listen to the radio wise ones, to fully understand the shrugging and shak’in that’s going on.
The Democrat scene is downright frightening. The boldly admitted socialist/communist, Bernie Sanders is gaining a full head of steam. Of course it is white and his 74 years of age slumps his shoulders, but his boat is sliding past Brun-hilda’s. The fact that Ms. Clinton is losing steam is not what is frightening. What should scare the hell out of you, is that there are so many people who flock to socialism. What is stoking the fires on Sander’s ship is not his appearance or his oratory. What is pouring on the coal is a desire for Socialism. A dislike of Brun-hilda helps, but the polling of both of them shows one huge bunch of voters wanting to throw out their freedoms and liberties. This means at least 1/3 plus of the voters, like sheep over a cliff, will embrace Socialism, even though history clearly shows it always fails. This means 1/3 or so only think about themselves and today. They do not think about you and tomorrow. We can thank the 20 or so years of socialist teaching in the schools and lack of teaching of the need for a thinking voter, and a representative republic. If Bernie wins it will clearly pitch socialism against a Republic. If Brun-hilda wins it will also pitch socialism against our Republic, but just not so clearly. It makes little difference which one wins, their political message will be the same.
The GOP scene is startling. Startling because it is kind of like a volcano about to erupt. The ground is shaking and the shrugs are noticeable. How much it will blow or if at all, is the question. No matter how many millions are spent by the compromise candidates they do not move. Jeb Bush is clearly stuck and unable to move. Obviously GOP voters are not interested in one who will compromise with Socialism. The two top guys, are Cruz and Trump, or Trump and Cruz if you please. Cruz has a track record of not compromising but fighting to the last vote. Trump says he will do better. Trumps track record is in business give and take and Cruz is the proven legislator. Both are attracting the attention of the thinking voter. At this point one of them will probably win. Which one will best be able to obtain a majority to win in a General Election?
What we have shaping up is a major battle for our nation’s soul. Will we become a full blown socialist state or will we return to the principals of a democrat republic? History has seen the collapse of democracy, many times when the economic problems are upside down. Too many people will vote for their stomach and immediate good feelings. To take advantage of bad times the socialist will lie and promise the moon. America’s political scene is turning sour. The world economy is upside down. The situation is ripe for the loss of freedom and liberty. Hang on, but do not just sit there. Do something helpful. PROTEST: Fly the Betsy Ross flag. It is the one flag where all the States supported the Constitution.

(OR: Don’t blame the sky for the rain.)
Over and over again we hear the Dull Heads blame Radical Islam as something separate from Islam.
The problem is Islam itself. It is not just a religion so get over it. Call it for what it is. It is a political doomsday cult. It was created by a man. His name was Mohammed. If you believe in fairytales then the belief system was dictated to Mohammed (who could not write) by an Angel, who in turn took it from the dictation of God. Of course the man changed God to Allah. The cult will not assimilate and is not tolerant, and worse, oppressive to its own people. Its cult rituals are designed to generate and maintain blind faith. It is a doomsday cult because it predicts an end to the world as we know it. For example Shias believe in the coming of Muhammad of Hason of Mahdi the 12th Imam who will create heaven on earth out of chaos. Call it for what it is, and not what you hope it will be.
The WSJ had a headline the other day that read, “TERROR BATTLEFIELD SPREADS”. It was talking about Islamic killings in Indonesia. Only those who fail to understand reality would accept this as a new threat which is spreading. Ask the folks at Bali who got blown to bits in 2002. Bali is in Indonesia. 206 folks were killed and 209 were injured. Of the 206, 88 were Australian, 38 were Indonesian and the other 90 were from other places. Ask the Philippine police and military who have for years been trying to control their out of control Islam. Islam has been trying to kill as many non-Muslims in that part of the world since long before World War 2. It is not a matter of spread. It is a matter of focus. Today with the success in the middle East, those who read the Koran, as the word of Allah, are demanding more radical action on the part of the Mullahs. In other words they want the nasty parts of the Koran preached. We all understand that most people, Muslim or not, want to live in peace. The Muslim, however, must believe that the ultimate Peace will only occur when everyone is Muslim or a slave of Islam. An individual Muslim must believe that, because the Koran is the word of God. There can be no question, no deviation, no other answer. The word of Allah is to kill non- believers. If an individual Muslim does not, then they do so because it is convenient not to or they are a coward who avoids their word of God. Being a coward is itself a reason to be killed. Blind faith to Allah means you are blocked no matter which way you go. It is not just the Islamic State. It is every one of them if given a chance. If you are bound to turn the other cheek, then turn it to say hello to Alice, the Mad Hatter and the rest of them in wonderland.

(OR: Watch the collapse of socialism all over again.)
Most with common sense understand. If that’s you, pay special attention to the collapse of socialism in Venezuela. Pass on the information to those who need to know. As this is written the Socialist State of Venezuela is in its final days. Yesterday the WSJ byline was “Showdown Looms as Venezuela’s New Assembly Meets.” The fact that there is a new Assembly is remarkable.
Let’s refresh our memories. This little country has bumped along, since the 40s, with a sometimes on and sometimes off democracy. A couple of dictators broke up the process. Like so many South American countries it to has been plagued by corruption. This was especially bad when oil revenue became a big deal. Venezuela does have a Constitution and set of laws that should work, but the one thing that makes the difference between the U.S. and South American Countries, is their lack of a popular demand for the rule of law. Corruption and good ole family obligations run deep in most South American Countries. It is just so much easier to pay someone off, than to force a system of law to work. Ok, in 1998 with the party system in disarray, a Mr. Hugo Chavez was elected Presidente. Immediately he declared a “ Bolivarian Revolution” and set about by Executive decree, to establish a communist/Socialist system. (Obama has been doing the same thing .) To show how common sense deficient Hugo was, his hero was Castro, the leader of a failed socialist system in Cuba. Decree by decree Hugo took the law into his own hands and jailed the opposition. He shut up the critics, and essentially, like Castro, became a dictator. He did it all in the name of Socialism. He saw to it that his buddies took office in the Assembly He spent the tax dollars to bribe the people to shut up and be his buddy. He did this to such an extent that he broke the country and its debt began to spiral out of control. Even his death did not dent inflation. His side kick Nicolas Madura had the packed Assembly put him in charge and he continued the stupid socialist agenda of spending more money than exists.. Debt and corruption simply got a lot better. Madura is a rough and tumble dictator. He also is dumb. He allowed the normal election cycle to happen. That is he did not institute enough control to fake elections. It is tough to explain dumb. The upshot was that the people fell into more and more poverty, the middle class simply became a minority, and people took to the streets. When the election happened, not enough of his buddies made it back into the Assembly, even with fraud. Now he has a legislature with a voice and he does not like it. He has packed the Supreme Court, and is now doing everything he can to silence the Assembly. He would do more but his military is weak and his police are only partly effective in the big cities. Point is he squandered so much of the tax income on keeping the people quite, that he does not have enough to demand total control. To do that the dictator must decide who lives and who dies. Madura is not there, but we shall see.
In the mess he and Hugo created, Madura will find the only way he can hold on to power is to slam down the opposition. Right now he is keeping the leading opposition members from attending the assembly. His poor foresight has left him little wiggle room. He will push as far as he thinks he can. If the people take to the streets he is done. If they do not, and accept his slavery, then he will continue to do what Socialism always does. It will dispirit the people by removing motivation, and suck them down with the sinking ship of State.
The failure of Socialism is dramatically displayed in History. So few seem to understand that fact or care. Just the other day Rooster was watching a poll taken of people on the street, and like so many he has seen before, most did not even know the name of our Vice President. Dumbing down the people is how political charlatans win. We must demand education and participation of every student as a major weapon against the con. Political education is so important. Who is in office affects every one of us. Americans must talk politics to protect their liberties and freedoms. PROTEST: Fly the Betsy Ross flag. It is the one flag where all the States supported the Constitution. Wc: 719
