Freedom … to kill? No. Freedom from guns? Not possible. Freedom from violence due to mental illness? Possible.


Take away guns? Medicate persons with violent tendencies?

Murdering  kids at school, youth at universities, parishioners at church and  people at music events.  That’s become a reality of USA life in 2018.  What can we do? Yes there are things we can do.

Yes —  there are drugs that can medicate and control violent urges to kill self and other.

No — it’s not realistic to take away 300 million guns from the U.S. population. Take away the guns is the “answer” according to some.  That is not realistic. Perhaps making it illegal for gun sellers to sell guns that spit out thousands of bullets — that’s possible.

Yes — a number of states have enacted laws so it’s easy to lock up persons who may harm others or themselves (including California).

Yes — shoot back!  That works.   There are stun guns and taser guns and  a variety of ways to arm persons who can “guard” at public places, e.g.,  schools, churches, malls and other places where people congregate.

Yes — use modern surveillance cameras, drones and modern technology  to watch those with known histories of violent histories.   And permit law enforcement to keep track and monitor persons who  post  violent threats via  Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

So yes — let’s get real.  There are too many young men (so far just men) who choose to kill others.

We must control persons’s with known, long term histories of  violent  urges via appropriate medication and appropriate incarceration.

Don’t ask for a federal government solution.  States must experiment and do what’s right for their citizens.

Freedom: free to make your own “dumb” decisions. Wow! [medical insurance, internet usage & FBI Peter Strzok]

Freedom to make your own “dumb” decisions

Freedom … to make your own  “dumb” decisions …  such as ‘do I want health insurance?‘  Under the proposed tax plan, there’s no more requirement that you  must purchase medical insurance. .Young people  will no longer be  saddled with paying for the health requirements of older, more sick individuals.

And freedom …. again  to decide exactly  what you want and don’t want from the Internet.

This week, the FCC voted to eliminate the  two year old ‘net neutrality’ rules imposed by Obama.

So,  for example ATT offers no cost for streaming to customers who use their cellular services and purchase TV Direct.  That was not considered  ‘neutral’ and therefore  illegal  under Obama’s  rules as other service providers did not offer the same ‘deal’.   Now you get to decide what ‘deal’ you can afford and want concerning Internet usage.

Another freedom: FBI agent Peter Strzok’s freedom to send thousands of  texts  his lover attorney Page concerning his intense dislike of Trump.  Attorney Strzok sat in on the interviews with Hilary Clinton — interviews which were not taped. It was Strzok who changed the language describing Clinton’s behavior downgrading it   from “grossly negligent” to “extremely  careless”

Russian internet trolls sow discord & oppose Trump after the election


Russian firm — Internet Research Agency — continues to churn out discord via Facebook

Long term Russian interference:  Before and after 2016 elections the  Russian internet trolls sowed discord.

After the 2016  election,  Russian trolls opposed Trump–  writing posts that Trump  is  not a  legitimate President.  So we learn today from Facebook  lawyers testifying about Russian manipulation of Facebook via political ads.

One Russian firm — Internet Research Agency — churned out  80,000 (80 K) posts on Facebook  from Jan. 2015 through August 2017. “Most of these posts and ads are deeply disturbing” says Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch.  “Coming from foreign actors using fake accounts is simply unacceptable.”

Internet Research Agency pits groups against other groups.  

Per the WSJ Oct. 31 2017, Facebook, Google and Twitter will divulge new details showing the scope of Russian backed manipulation both before and after the 2016 elections.

Twitter and Google testify Nov. 1 2017 in front of the House and Senate intelligence committees which are conducting probes to uncover what happened during the campaign for President.

Lawyers for Facebook testify that Russians sought to de-legitimize the Trump Presidency after the elections.

So how does this square with mainstream media’s narrative for this past year  of collusion by Trump with Russia? It does not square.

Freedom NOW from ObamaCare!

Freedom NOW  from ObamaCare!

Americans are not stupid. They can  make informed choices.

Let people  choose their doctors and their  health plans.

What to do?  Legalize competition across state lines.  That will drive premium  costs down.

Give  ObamaCare  no money via the  Exchanges.  Let people opt out totally.  Let small businesses create their own collectives. Encourage Health Savings Accounts with families making the decisions how to spend their health dollars.

written by Cameron Jackson

Phil Gramm, Republicans, Stand up for Health Freedom  WSJ, Oct. 19, 2017

“President Trump has now created another such opening for compromise by announcing he will end ObamaCare’s cost-sharing payments to insurers. Without a constant injection of additional money, ObamaCare premiums will spiral upward, and the number of Americans who benefit from the program will continue to fall.

But the initial bipartisan bill, offered by Sens. Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D., Wash.), is more of a capitulation than compromise. It resuscitates ObamaCare but hardly provides a fig leaf for Americans who want their health-care freedom back—the very people who elected Republicans.

“Any agreement to restore funding for cost-sharing payments should be tied to provisions allowing families to opt out of ObamaCare and buy coverage that meets their individual needs. The compromise should also grant insurers the right to sell such plans independent of ObamaCare’s rules and its rigged risk pool.

“A money-for-freedom compromise would at last provide an opportunity to debate health-care freedom, something the public was denied by the great ObamaCare lie. If Democrats refuse to allow ObamaCare’s losers to escape in return for funding for the program’s beneficiaries, it will be Democrats who let the program collapse. Throughout the debate they will be forced to argue against the very health-care freedom they falsely promised when they adopted ObamaCare.”

freedom ? — Trump, Hilary and the “swamp” in Washington square off…. who is winning?

Three issues:  immigration, taxes and health care.  Looks like  the “swamp” still runs Washingon D.C. The alligators are strong.

And the world keeps getting less safe in so many ways…. Las Vegas with 50+ dead and 500 sent to hospital. So sad.  So terrible.

Trump stumped for a physical   Wall to control illegal immigration,  he wants to  reduce taxes on the middle class  and Trump  wants to repeal Obama-Care.

Where are we?

So far, 10 months into his Presidency,  Trump   can’t seem  get much done on any of these three issues.  The ‘swamp’ [big time donors, the ‘establishment’ of both Democrats and Republicans] oppose Trump’s stance on all  3 issues.

Remember Hillary?  Hilary opposed a Wall, wanted  a single payer system of health care and said  she wants to soak the rich —  but who knows really what her policies would have been on taxes.

Freedom for the little guy.  The small business.  The lemon juice  stand.  People who want to start a business or grow one.  How can we help to  increase freedom?

And how can people safely go to a Country Western concert and just ‘hang out’ with friends listening to music that heals them?  How do we as a People heal …?

Attorney General Sessions & FBI Comey: Mumm’s the word


Stephanie Murphy, Florida Representative says not OK to talk to ambassadors

 So it’s not OK  for the top Justice person, Jeff  Sessions,  to talk to ambassadors?

CNN anchor JAKE TAPPER: Congresswoman, Attorney General Sessions said he was recusing himself from the matter but obviously played a leading role in the firing of Comey, he’s playing a leading role in the hiring of his replacement. Do you have concerns about that?

REP. STEPHANIE MURPHY (D), FLORIDA: Absolutely I do have concerns about that. We know that  Attorney General Sessions recused himself because he had had contact with Russian government officials and I’m somebody who has had one of the highest clearances in this country and I know that —

TAPPER: You used to serve at the Pentagon.

MURPHY: That’s correct.And I know that there’s no such thing as appropriate contact with a hostile foreign government, and so he’s recused himself from the Russian investigation. I don’t believe that he should be involved in selecting the FBI director. We need to have somebody who is beyond reproach in that position.


Firenze Sage:    This woman [Stephanie Murphy] hates Trump to the point of derangement. What are ambassadors for if not to talk to even if from Iran,N Korea or Russia.

2014 ambassador from north Korea to Russia


Joe Biden award for freedom: another Obama maudlin moment


freedom award for who just as Obama leaves office -- VP Biden. Oh?

freedom award for who just as Obama leaves office — VP Biden. Oh?

A maudlin moment by Obama:

Latest who gets Medal of Freedom:  Joe Biden

Matt Lauer  (so we hear)  was in tears when Barack Obama awarded Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a surprise ceremony Thursday.

“I’m glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping,” Lauer said Friday morning on the “Today” show. “I just burst out crying when I saw that moment.”

” It was incredible.


Oh C’mon Matt buck up it’s only another cheap political move like Obama getting the Secy of Defense to give him an award. Little kids and merit badges huh?

Tomorrow we know: ObamaCare? Illegal immigrants? “Deplorables”?


Freedom or

What direction for America?

Tomorrow —  when we wake up  — Americans  will know what direction the country will take:  ObamaCare, illegal immigration,  “Deplorables”,  likely  control of the  Supreme Court.

Can “outsider” such as Trump  win?  Or  will  The Clinton Foundation and  “elete”  of Washington and New York — who spectacularly don’t know middle america — continue to rule?

Pray that Americans make the right choices — for freedom, justice and the same rule of law for all persons.

About 70% of Americans think the country is going in the wrong direction.  Well, it’s been Obama and Hilary as Secretary of State guiding how this country has been going.  Will Americans vote for a new direction?

Early polling  suggests that Americans want  to elect a “strong leader” .  That sounds like Trump as Hilary’s leadership reminds people of Bengazi and four dead Americans and that America is involved in 5 undeclared wars right now.

If Hilary wins, then more  costly  ObamaCare comes  our way.  If  Trump, then ObamaCare   can  be — likely will be —  thrown out.

If Trump wins, illegal immigration  can be controlled.  A recent poll shows that Hispanics overwhelmingly want illegals sent home.

What about the “Deplorables” which Hilary says make up half of Trump’s support.    Hilary may express regret about her remarks, but  how  will Hilary’s “Deplorables” vote?

Hispanics and immigration:  Per a poll released today,  Hispanics want laws enforced and illegals sent home.  So  — as one might surmise, Hispanics ‘get it’ that opening the flood gate to illegals hurts  plenty of USA born people looking for minimum wage jobs.

Blacks vote as a bloc for Obama/ Hilary?   Will the young Blacks do the bidding of Michelle Obama who tells them “Just vote Democrat.”  One young Black woman interviewed said that she was not staying on the Plantation as Michelle Obama tells her.  This young black woman refuses to vote Democrat  just because Michelle Obama tells her to.

Tomorrow — when we wake up and read the papers and turn on the news — then we will know what direction America will go.  Let’s pray that freedom and liberty and one rule of law applies to all persons.
