Enough! The Turning Point has been reached.

Published

on

On May 1 in Austin, Texas, the Capitol of the most independent and free state in the USA, there was a public demonstration and march by Communists. They carried flags of the defunct Soviet Union, huge photos of history’s mass murderers Stalin, Lenin, Mao, and their big daddy Marx. Most were masked, after all why would you want people to know that you were doing something so hateful and stupid?

Consider this, none of these angry protests are rooted in goodness. They don’t encourage healthy, cooperative, compassionate, peaceful living. They aren’t in favor of the America that the world has come to admire and envy. They are in favor of a Satanic idea known as Communism. Total government of all aspects of life! They encourage the admiration of some of the worst people who have ever lived. This is not insanity, that’s a condition that can be treated. This is Evil. Pure on, out in the open, no excuses, Evil!

Woke idiots will tell you there is no evil.

They say there are merely things you disagree with. Really? OK, I disagree with the wholesale pardoning of violent felons and releasing them into society. By the way, why would anyone agree with doing this? Seriously, try to make a case for this. I’ll be amazed if you can even get past the first exchange in that debate.

I also disagree with the encouragement of the immigration invasion of our southern border. You say this isn’t an invasion? Prove it. Again, I’m serious. Try to turn this into a humanitarian issue. You can’t because it’s not. This is a coordinated invasion without armaments. The invaders are being sent by people who want to severely harm America. The tactics of throwing children into the river to distract our border agents while vans filled with drugs are smuggled across just upstream, the release of the illegal immigrants into America without control, and the herding of people, including children into the Biden Cages and disease incubators all along our border…is evil. Not dumb, not wrong…Evil!

Defunding police is another practice that I disagree with. When true data shows that police brutality and racism are extremely rare, and that more whites are killed by police than blacks, how could one believe that the police are bad guys? What kind of society would benefit from a reduction in public safety? A society that is hoping to drop into chaos so that the government can take over more quickly. When the black on black violence and gang violence is running rampant in our country and is ignored by those attacking our police, what is their goal? Think about it. If high murder rates, looting, riots and home invasions are acceptable but policing is not, then what does that say about the intentions of the person supporting or ignoring this? It’s evil. Prove me wrong.

Hypocrisy is condoned

Notice the hypocrisy of the Legislators who blame police while requiring the armed protection of Congress. The January 6 violence at the Capitol led to one murder, a protestor, Ashli Babbitt, was killed by someone in Capitol security. Nobody put her name on posters, dedicated a plaza in her name, put on Congressional kneeling photo-ops, or wore T shirts of her. Nobody called for the conviction and prosecution of the cop who shot her point blank without a threat from her. She was a protestor and trespasser, not an armed, masked Antifa soldier. She wasn’t a life time criminal like George Floyd, so she gets no sympathy.

Riots in Portland, Kenosha, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and more go on every week. Thugs and low-lifes beat innocent people, destroy property and openly defy police, and somehow the Democrat politicians aren’t outraged and alarmed about it. But that’s not what they want to protect us from. In fact, they don’t want to protect US at all. They demand that the fences stay up around the US Capitol and the National Guard in place in order to protect them from us. Clue: when the leaders in government fear the resistance of the people they govern, they are no longer seeking to represent you. They are seeking to control you!

What does Satan look like?

Remember all the images of the devil that show him as a red skinned, horned monster? That’s not what The Great Deceiver looks like. He looks like the people in City Councils, School Boards, State Capitols and the US Congress who enable all this hatred, racism, violence, lawlessness and lying. Don’t fall for the false accusations of the conservatives. That’s simply deflection, the accusation of others for the offenses you are committing. When we say, “Stop the violence! Stop the spending! Stop the invasion!” They say, “No, YOU are the guilty ones” and they restate old disproven lies and they manufacture new lies to accuse you. In the Leftist view, Accusation is Guilt! They don’t need courts, proof, investigation, etc. They have reached their conclusion and it is that anyone who disagrees with them is evil and must be eliminated or dominated. “Eliminated or dominated.” Let that sink in.

Hurt them or Just make them stop?

What do reasonable people and good people want regarding evil people? Do they want them killed or imprisoned or subjugated? No! They simply want the damage to stop. That’s all we ask, just stop killing, burning, rioting, cancelling, hating and blaming people. For example, one of the people I most disagree with is Nancy Pelosi, but I don’t wish her harm. I simply don’t want her to be making decisions, passing laws or implementing rules that we have to follow. Just take away her power and let her go have a happy life in Napa Valley.

But that’s not enough for the Left. They demand “Justice!” They even invent categories to validate it; “Social justice, Racial justice, Climate justice, etc.” They want someone to pay for the “crimes” they are accusing us of. They want to see someone suffer. For example; Derek Chauvin, they aren’t satisfied that he was convicted on three counts of murder. They have said openly that they are waiting for the sentencing. They want to see him suffer. Who would want to see another person suffer? Evil people.

I’m not assuming that these people are inherently evil inside nor that they are the spawn of Satan. I’m just saying that in their foolishness, anger and insecurity they have given in to evil without realizing it. Deception again. The goals they scream out are all about punishment. They say “Make them pay!” In contrast, I don’t hate anybody. I strongly disagree with some people and I really want the threat of their actions removed. But I get no peace by having them punished. I just don’t want them to be able to hurt others anymore. For some, that requires imprisonment, for others, just take away their power.

We have reached the Tipping Point in America. The lines are drawn clearly. You’re either in favor of life, liberty and peace or you are supportive of the evil “justice warriors” of the Left. Our school boards, our cities, our newsrooms, borders, and government at the city, state and national levels have been infiltrated by advocates of evil and it’s time we stated that clearly and made it stop! Step up America, resist the take over and corruption of our beautiful and loving nation. Run for office, cast your votes for what is good and right, not for a personality or a sensational concept. Vote your heart and soul. Make America Good Again. God bless America…please!!!!

Scottsdale School District Retaliates Against Parents Over Curriculum Meeting

Published

on

Last week, a group of Scottsdale Unified School District Parents hosted a meeting to discuss the controversial new curriculum and to educate parents on what content to be on the lookout for. In response to this meeting the school district send a cease and desist order over the use of “SUSD”.  Parents are shocked Scottsdale Unified School District administration would waste resources over such a simple matter.  One parent involved Amy Carney had the follow reaction “This time the school board has crossed a new threshold and must be held accountable for abusing their power to intimidate parents through legal action. Parents were sent a cease and desist letter for using the Scottsdale Unified School District initials to describe our recent event and for using “SUSD” as a part of a group of concerned parents in the districts’ social media name.”

Unfortunately, this situation is playing out across the country as parents continue to ask questions about their children’s education.

 Full statement and Letter

STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO SCOTTSDALE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT’S LETTER SENT TO PARENTS TO CEASE AND DESIST USE OF SCHOOL DISTRICT’S INITIALS TO ORGANIZE NON DISTRICT APPROVED EVENTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Scottsdale, Arizona—Scottsdale Unified School Board President, Jann Michael Greenburg, approved using taxpayer’s dollars to target and harass Scottsdale public school district parents for hosting an information night on July 28 for community members and parents.
Scottsdale mom of six, Amy Carney, co-organizer of the event, says, “We hosted this event because parents need to know what to expect when sending their kids back to school. The district is not transparent or truthful with parents so we hosted the event to share what we’ve learned and give parents the tools and information to take action this upcoming school year. The board President is now retaliating against us parents for circumventing their ability to control the conversation.”

Since August, 2020 parents have held the district and board accountable for gaslighting families on everything from school closures, to mask mandates and curriculum. On record, the board President has tried to intimidate theseoutspoken parents into silence by harassing them on social media and canceling their voices at school board meetings. Carney says, “This time the school board has crossed a new threshold and must be held accountable for abusing
their power to intimidate parents through legal action. Parents were sent a cease and desist letter for using the Scottsdale Unified School District initials to describe our recent event and for using “SUSD” as a part of a group of concerned parents in the districts’ social media name.

Unknown to the group, the board trademarked the initials in October of 2020 and is now selectively choosing who can and cannot use the Scottsdale Unified School District initials. The district’s attorney gave the unofficial Facebook group of moms and dads (formerly known as SUSD-CAN) until Friday afternoon to change the group’s name which is now the Scottsdale Unified CAN (Community Advocacy Network). Co-admin of the Facebook group (formerly known as SUSD-CAN) Trish Olson says, “Why didn’t they just ask us directly to change the name? We’ve met with Scottsdale Superintendent Dr. Scott Menzel monthly, as recently as
July 8. If they wanted to keep lines of communication open with parents, why get lawyers involved?”

Scottsdale parent and Co-organizer of the event, Amanda Wray, raised awareness in the community last week when SUSD sent a controversial form by “mistake” asking parents for consent to have their child surveyed with questions about medical and mental health history and gun and ammunition ownership in the home. The district replaced the
consent form and issued a statement of retraction. Wray says, “Unfortunately, this just looks and feels like retaliation for scrutinizing the district over the repeated missteps and lack of transparency with parents. Our mission and efforts will not be diluted or discouraged by such trivial and punitive actions against our group. We encourage all parents in public schools to get involved in their child’s education and ask questions when things don’t seem right.”

Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind: California and its Epic Wildfires

Published

on

California

Like the 2018 Camp Fire, California’s Dixie Fire is epic. It has burned more than 220,000 acres and at least 40 structures. It’s the largest conflagration since the Camp Fire that destroyed Paradise. Sadly, California wildfires are becoming as common as Florida hurricanes. Why is this happening and who’s to blame? In a word, California.

By mismanaging its forests and water sources and enabling a power provider to place profits over people, the Golden State has sown the wind and is reaping the whirlwind.

Why is every California fire season scarier and more destructive than the last? The reasons can be boiled down to these:

  1. Decades of forest mismanagement caused by environmentalists shaping policy
  2. Co-opted Northern California watersheds and water supply diversion
  3. Hotter temperatures and historic drought conditions caused by climate change
  4. Failing PG&E infrastructure
Forest mismanagement

We live five miles from the southeastern edge of the Dixie Fire. Our little mountain town of Quincy is under an evacuation warning. Many of our fellow residents live in areas of mandatory evacuation and some have lost their homes. Local firefighters and forest experts have known for years this was inevitable.

It’s common sense, really. When forest undergrowth and dead limbs and logs are allowed to pile up between trees, you may as well stack logs at their bases and light a match. Wise forest managers remove forest floor fuels and keep forests from growing dangerously dense.

Foolish forest managers allow undergrowth to flourish in order to “protect” ecological environments of certain species at the expense of overall forest ecology. This hands-off approach is pushed in Sacramento by those who think we’re only one species sharing our environment rather than caretakers of our environment.

Wise gardeners prevent weeds from diverting moisture from produce plants by removing them. This ensures a healthy garden. Why wouldn’t smart forest management include removal of undergrowth and dead or dying trees?

Water diversion

A few years ago, state biologists “gill-netted” vast quantities of fish in our local Silver Lake in order to prevent them from feeding on a certain frog. This decimated the fish population in favor of the frog population. How is this an ecological balance?

Similarly, allowing natural water sources to feed rivers and streams provides better hydration for trees—and raises critical moisture levels for forests. Diverting water from Northern California sources when levels are low exacerbates the deadly dryness of moisture-starved Sierra forests. Shouldn’t there be a better balance based on water levels?

As climate change continues to affect moisture and heat, smart and balanced water management becomes more critical. Yet California continues to base policy decisions reactively rather than proactively. If Northern California watershed areas burn for lack of moisture, poor water management will be partially to blame.

So will California’s reliance on hydroelectric power over traditional (and more effective) fossil-fuel plants. The state gets nearly 2/3 of its power from non-fossil fuel production, which is why it has to buy electricity from states like Oregon, Arizona and others.

Failing PG&E

Failed PG&E power lines are responsible for devastating California wildfires for the last five fire seasons. According to PG&E’s initial report the day the Dixie Fire started, an employee responding to an outage noticed a blown fuse at Cresta Dam in a heavily forested area of Butte County around the Feather River Canyon. He found two blown fuses and a tree leaning on a power conductor. He also found a fire on the ground near the base of the tree.

When the 2018 Camp Fire erupted, a PG&E employee noticed flames caused by a faulty transmission line in Feather River Canyon. Many of these lines are supported by electrical towers from the early 1900s. PG&E customers pay modern rates for modern electricity delivered via century-old towers.

In fairness, PG&E is finally taking steps to modernize its infrastructure with underground line burial and other measures. Sadly, these measures are long overdue and are too little too late for victims of the Camp Fire and now for those dealing with the Dixie Fire. Worse, PG&E seems to be continuing their foot-dragging regarding reporting system failures when they point to a wildfire start.

Closed market

According to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), PG&E ignored regulations that require it to report wildfire-related infrastructure failures within two hours of the event. PG&E took five days to report the Dixie Fire-related failure to CPUC. As a state agency, CPUC answers to Governor Gavin Newsom and Sacramento politicians. PG&E is supposed to answer to CPUC, yet is still failing to follow the rules.

Not only is there a lack of meaningful accountability, the relationship between California and PG&E is dysfunctional. The average citizen wonders why Sacramento continues enabling a repeat offender of a power company. Another question is why California refuses to open up its utility market to competitors in order to force PG&E to modernize its infrastructure.

Something has to change or California will continue to burn every fire season. Close to home, people in our community love living in Northern California, but the Golden State will lose even more citizens if residents have to flee the flames every summer.
