Know your enemy, and be prepared

Right now, there's a battle under way for the heart and soul of America.  I don't believe for a moment that President Trump is always in the right, and I freely admit that his actions can sometimes be implemented in a very insensitive and crude way.  Nevertheless, he was duly and constitutionally elected.  It's his right - and his job - to lead this country, and he's doing so in accordance with promises we all knew he'd made before he was elected.  There's nothing unforeseen or unexpected in what he's doing now.  He's keeping his promises.

I understand there are those who don't like what he promised, and are fighting to stop him keeping those promises now.  They have that democratic right, within reason and within limits, and I'll do all I can to support their exercise of that right - not because I agree with them, but because I support our constitution.  Nevertheless, as President Obama said in 2010:  "Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won."  President Trump is entitled to say - and behave - in exactly the same way now.  Goose, meet gander sauce.  Gander, meet goose sauce.  If you approved of President Obama saying that, and behaving like that, in 2010, you've got to concede the same right to President Trump now.

Protests against President Trump are entirely legitimate, as long as they remain within the law and the constitution.  When they cross those lines, they become illegitimate - even criminal.  They also reveal the enemies of our society, and show them for what they are.  One such enemy, whom I understand is a schoolteacher, revealed herself in Seattle over the weekend.  See and hear for yourself.

Here are a few select quotes from that screed.

  • "F*** white supremacy, f*** the US empire, f*** your imperialist-ass whites."
  • "White people, give your f****** money, your f****** house, your f****** property, we need it f****** all."
  • "Pay the f*** up.  Pay the f*** up.  It ain't just your f****** time, it's your f****** money..."
  • "We're all operating under white supremacy."
  • "The white cops must die.  The white cops, the f****** White House, the f****** President, they must go."

America, know your enemy.  She's speaking in that video - and everyone who agrees with her is also your enemy.

I truly feel sorry for all loyal Americans who live near people like that.  You've got some housecleaning to do, and it probably won't be pretty.  For those who live in areas such as mine, we've got less of a problem, but we may have to go help out our fellow Americans in more infested areas.  That's all right.  That's what standing together is all about.  That's what "E Pluribus Unum" means.

The sentiments expressed by the woman in that video are what's driving much of the opposition to President Trump's executive orders concerning refugees and immigration from seven selected countries.  Many of the protests and riots are not directed against those executive orders.  They're directed against the system of government that produced them (and the executive orders of all President Trump's predecessors, come to that).  They're directed against the constitutional republic that is the United States of America.  The will of the people, expressed in accordance with our constitution, made possible President Trump's executive orders;  and that will of the people is now being targeted for violent resistance, if not elimination.

Be in no doubt as to the seriousness of this situation.  What are you going to do if you're confronted by a mob such as those cheering on the woman in that video above?  I know what I'm going to do, and I have no doubt whatsoever that the vast majority of people among whom I live will do the same thing.  However, you may not be so fortunate as to live in an area with common sense and respect for our constitution and way of life.  What are you going to do?  Decide now, and prepare yourselves accordingly.

The possibility - probability? - has occurred to others also.  Go read Lawdog's thoughts on the matter.  I suspect they're prophetic.

That is a very sobering link to Lawdog, but I think makes a lot of sense. People who have seen the effect of war will be very ready to defend their own family against others who seek to harm them.

Another example, and how the next generation is being educated to act in this manner. A teacher simulates shooting President Trump in front of her class: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/teacher-placed-on-leave-after-video-shows-her-pointing-water-gun-at-trump-image/

They are trained in this behavior from kindergarten thru the College degree, and then have a huge surprise when they run into real life. As another commentator noted, the "protesters" at the inauguration were actually surprised to be arrested & charged with federal crimes. They thought "nothing would happen", and under Obama, nothing would.

At one time, kids in school were taught to be Americans, and take pride in their country. Now, they are taught to hate their country, and act out their hatred, and hatred always requires a scapegoat. Or stated another way, I believe that an enemy fifth column is being trained inside America, and taught that they have the RIGHT to take whatever they want, in payback for whatever imaginary wrong they feel.

And don't forget the paid protest leaders and paid protesters bussed in to these various venues. One wonders how much more Soros is willing to 'invest' in destroying America as we know it... Agree with LawDog's post, it's on the money.

I understand that old George S. may have bigger fish to fry.
Seems at least two eastern European countries have issues with some of his machinations with their currency and economies. And now he finds himself without a compliant liberal administration to backstop him.
Just imagine Soros petitioning the President to deny extradition and Trump's response: "George who?"

Much of Washington bureaucracy's and the media's problem with understanding ( if they're even trying) of Trump is their failure to comprehend that the business world ( the REAL world) he comes from is very different from the snail crawling Washington bureaucracy they so dearly love. In the REAL world you do what your boss tells you to do, or you get fired. ( Do you understand that now Asst. Attorney General?
