Three dead police officers in Baton Rouge, another three in the hospital. The Federal Government has learned that once you "race-bait" a nation, there is no "take back." It took seven plus years of biased propaganda directed at our nation's police force to turn the "public" against them. Having public funerals and Presidential announcements will not solve the problem. The Federal Government has to take full responsibly for this mistake and own up to it, period. It will take time, it will be painful, and some leaders, rightly so, will lose their jobs. The United States of America is better than this. To quote President Obama, "This is not who we are!" It is not. Community leaders, religious leaders, political leaders must all now stand up and lead the nation out of this chaos. Don't politicize the situation, solve it, take responsibility. Most of the police in this country work for small and large governments. It is in these communities where the healing must begin. The simple fact that our society continues to tolerate massive weekend killings, week after week, (I.E. Chicago) sums up our problem. Nobody cares! Nobody wants to really do anything! Everybody believes it does not really concern them, not until it knocks on their door. I call for all Americans, White, Black, Asian, Yellow, Purple, Green, etc to come together and STOP THIS NONSENSE! Come on, if you WAIT until your husband, your son or daughter, your neighbor is killed, it is TOO LATE. That's the way I see it, today, July 17th, 2016. May all the families of the slain police officers in Dallas, in Baton Rouge, all across the nation, may their memories be a blessing. Thank You for their service.
Nice, France, Bastille Day. An Islamic Jihadist Terrorist commands a truck and killed 84 plus people and hospitalized countless others. Many of the victims were children. I repeat, children. The terrorist first name, once again, began with Mohammed. Once again, France, is the center of a major Islamic terrorist strike. Once again, innocents are targeted. While the media clamors to get the "story" out, while the police react, while government officials proclaim they will fix this, one thing is clear. The war is on. The war between Fundamental Islamist Terrorism and the West has moved into high gear. Open, democratic, liberal societies will now be forced to unite to extinguish this scourge. Just like the Nazis, just like Stalin's communism, ISIS will fall. It may take time, but it will fall. When all the resources are put together, collectively, when all the nations of peace stand together and take on the battle, the war will be won. Killing people in night clubs, slaughtering fellow workers at Christmas parties, shooting concert goers in Paris, or running over children at a firework displays will not deter the resolve of representative governments. Until the enemy fears us more that we fear them, they will hold the upper hand. It is temporary. Fascist Japan, fell. Fascist Germany, fell. Communist Soviet Union, fell. Fundamental Islamic Terrorism will fall. It is just a matter of time. The world is witnessing, first hand, a change in Islam. This change will be slow, painful. The majority of Muslim's don't want their religion branded as terror. Islam will have to redefine itself it is going to survive the future. No organization, no religion, no political philosophy, no ideal will stand scrutiny if your name stands for death. That's the way I see it, today, July 17th, 2016.
Dallas, July 7th, 2016, my birthday. Unfortunately, after yesterday's terrorist attack on Dallas police officers, it appears that America has crossed a line. There is a vacuum of leadership in the United States. Race baiting by the present administration has now reached a crescendo and has successfully pitted each American against another. Eleven Dallas police officers are dead or in the hospital. The same politicians which have been stirring up this crisis are calling for calm. President Obama is shocked. Really? He and Eric Holder have pushed and pushed the dialogue that Black people should hate White people. I am personally disgusted. Here are the facts. President Obama owns this. He is part of the problem. He should be apologizing right now to the American public, Black and White. In America, today, there has NEVER been such a tension of fear and malice, not even during the sixties. During the Civil Rights Movement Martin Luther King made it a point to emphasize NON-VIOLENCE. I am deeply saddened that the people of the United States have to endure this madness. I don't hate Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, Native Americans, etc., etc. so why is the Federal Government telling us that we should? Why is the Federal Government telling minorities to hate Whites? I don't get it? Is this Liberalism? Is this what the Democratic Party represents? Is this the outcome of all the HATE being stirred up by the mass media? Questions, Questions, Questions. Now a taste of reality. THERE ARE DEAD POLICE OFFICERS IN THE STREETS OF THE UNITED STATES. If you do not think that this can not get worse, think again. Our country is in BIG trouble. We are standing on the edge of massive civil unrest which has the potential to get completely out of control. Please PRAY for us all. The PEOPLE of the United States need to come together in prayer and save this country from itself. Please pray today. The color of your skin is not the issue, fear and hate are. That's how I see it, today, July 8th, 2016.
