It’s very early on July 4th. Some thoughts on our society:

British historian Arnold Toynbee’s famous quote that “civilizations die by suicide not by murder” rings as true today as it did when it first appeared many years ago in his multi-volume Study of History published 1934-61. Toynbee concluded that great civilizations decline from the inside out as elite leadership turns parasitic and hubris leads them to ignore new challenges in favor of maintaining a self-serving status quo-government “over” the people not “of” the people.

Toynbee would no doubt find the political decadence of American leadership interesting in light of its efforts to destroy its constitution by relinquishing national sovereignty. There is little doubt that the US Constitution in not compatible with the grinding approach of a world government surrounding it.

The first three words in the Preamble to the US Constitution are “We the People”. This means that the people call the shots, not a central authority that calls itself the government. When America embarked on its journey to “Secure the Blessings of Liberty for itself and its posterity” it became an experiment that was studied and admired by the rest of the world.

But as American leadership went to the dark side throwing its own people under the bus with international trade agreements, the US Constitution became an obstacle standing in the way of a new world order. Deep State actors are now in the process of importing and implanting interlopers from the third world to corrupt the character of citizenry, undermine history and ultimately overthrow a constitutional republic.

Once the American people have been propagandized to commit mass suicide with the toxic displacement of invited invaders, the circle will be complete and the US elite will join the rest of the world as global royalty in complete control of the people. The Kool Aid of Sanctuary Cities is now being passed around and there are plenty of takers.

A refusal to enforce federal immigration laws is proselytized as some kind of “greater good” with Bolshevik/globalist packaging advertising it as a new and improved “higher purpose”. It’s really just the same old creeping socialism that threatens all free societies like Dark Energy.

Donald Trump’s election was a big “no thanks” from the people as the Kool aid was served. Toynbee had it right.

The majority of "we the people" are not Trump supporters, in fact we despise him and his entire hate filled agenda. And any attempt to place his Presidency on some higher plane of being "good for America" is totally ridiculous. Mean spiritedness is not an "American Value" and neither is narcissism and petty spite. His is a personality cult that has sucked in millions of followers and fellow travelers, and will go down in history as the worst Presidency we have ever had inflicted on us. I fully expect his 4th of July "Event" to be another debacle of the first order.

Wishing you a great 4th, Old Gaffer. Enjoy it with your family as I will.

As my kids often tell me, turn off the TV, relax and enjoy because this too, shall pass! The people will prevail, we just have to fight.

I would like to thank all the people back then that stood against tyranny when there was no chance they could win.

From the soldiers to the politicians to the people that supported them, those who had a vision of freedom and who laid the foundations for what our nation is today. The courage they had and the sacrifices they made cannot be underestimated.

So when you are at that BBQ today or shooting off your fireworks tonight just take a second to realize what made this possible.

People died for us to be able to do this.

Go and read one of your obama books to get you through the 4th.

I would also like to Thank the nation and people of France who came to our aid when we needed them.

You can only pray that Trump will make all immigration of "undesirables" illegal with an EO and implement a multi-million program of deportation...
