We must know thy Words!

We must know thy Words!

6640HUtpI have got to admit one enduring drama that has plagued my life since I can recall. This is of course the relaxation of the United States Customs and Enforcement agencies, our US Border Patrol Agency as well as the failure of our Congress to muster up the energy to move toward our invasion protocol, or better still, declaring war upon these individuals who have lapsed into our nation and everything that goes with it.            ICE1282014_0

At first for me, was the unraveling of the Bracero proceedings. Then only a few years later, President Regan has to get into it therefore, Congress STILL doesn’t have to work, and President Regan is getting this full-blown humanitarian bull squat. I wonder if President Regan knew it would be saying, 14 million illegals are accountable for jumping over whatever fencing is there and now they are marching from Honduras’?

We have to have someone in Washington who is ready to stand up and say, “The American people do not want birthright citizenship bestowed upon an illegal being born here; moreover, the American people want their lives to be secure and safe.” Go ahead make a name for yourself.

So, therefore, now, in my opinion, it is time for our beloved Congress (both houses) to start earning their US taxpayer salaries, while doing just that – it has come time for the indelible declaration of at least allowing this “Caravan” to be stopped.

Indeed, the Constitution is quite clear on war power. Congress has the power to determine IF the country will wage offensive war and against WHOM.  Once that decision is made by the Congress, the President is in charge of waging that war. (See Article 1 Section 2 of the Constitution).

downloadAs I wrote in an early-2007 article, Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, on the other hand, refers to the President as the “commander-in-chief of the army and navy of the United States.” What the founders meant by this clause was that once the war was declared, it would then be the responsibility of the President, as the commander-in-chief, to direct the war.

Alexander Hamilton supported this when he said that the President while lacking the power to declare war, would have “the direction of war when authorized.” Thus, under the Constitution, the President, acting without a Congressional declaration of war, is authorized only to repel invasion and sudden attacks.

Furthermore, pre-emptive strikes and undeclared offensive military expeditions are not powers delegated to the executive branch in the Constitution, and are, therefore, unlawful. Thomas Jefferson stated this quite eloquently when, in 1801, he said that, as President, he was “unauthorized by the Constitution, without the sanction of Congress, to go beyond the line of defense.”

Since it’s unlikely that the executive branch will limit its own power, and there’s very little evidence that the Congress will use the power of the purse to do so either, it’s going to be up to the people of the states to make that happen whether the feds want us to or not.


The Contemplative Thinker is NOT an “Open Borders” cite. We believe in the strong sovereignty of the United States. Furthermore, we believe in our system of governance. However, and most of all we believe in our rule of law. Thank you!

Testing…Everyone hearing that? Testing…

Or some may say Testis, everyone hears that? Testicles, testis

Okay to my readers, to my Congressional officials, and to my fellow humankind that lives autopsy5in the US of America, and of course, to my avid readers internationally.

Today is the day marked out to let you know that I do indeed have a moral and ethical statement to make. Here goes…

Today I come to you with a sound mind and simply ask if you believe our political parties in America are qualified to stop foreigners, illegal aliens, and ALL else who wants to enter our nation without proper documentation, without proper plans, who without question have no concept of our laws.

We find ourselves in a rather unique position, I used to struggle with this notion; however, I no longer do. My position is that we first look at our own people, their need for health care, then we look further into a nation who has a militia that is well prepared and could be better still; however, a key to our mending as a nation must be placed along the “infrastructure level.” (HINT: Us first.)

We live in a nation that is literally falling apart. Congressional officials please this request is above board and at arm’s length please do not let this request allow you to confiscate or otherwise allow you to stuff your pork bellies full of funding and let’s move toward making out country better.

You know, once upon a time people at various universities and (ahem) political parties fixed themselves as the “liberal thinkers” or “progressive types” and demanded a name such as “Elites.” Mind you, please set in your minds that this label was not earned or commanded in any way, shape, fashion, or form. It is just a name.  41MLuUCwxRL._SL500_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-big,TopRight,35,-73_OU01_SS160_

Well someone during someday looked up the word Elite and walked away with “the choice part:”, “the best of a class:”, “the socially superior part of society:”, “a group of persons who by virtue of position or education exercise much power or influence:”, as for me I almost thought I was stuck on conceded or vain.

Who in the Creator’s name started with this notion that people demand (Obama, Clinton, Comey, this list gets very long) elitism? It is something that is earned not because you may be an elected Representative or Senator, that was the easy part! No, no, now comes the idea of earning your keep. And the reason you are in office is perhaps predicated upon that very notion – that the person before you just didn’t get it done. Why these older-senior-seasoned-people continue to get elected is beyond me. Let’s all face it, okay, some of these people are just too old.

In some mystical place and certainly during a supernatural time some people startedcapture33(3) talking about asylum. Then I guess the same people discussed the notion of immigration control – or let’s try policies and rules. And I reasonably sure it has been the same people creating loopholes in our nation of laws that would inspire a family to walk from Honduras to the USA and all during that walk they had lawyers telling them how to achieve asylum.

Much the same thing or idea was incorporated by the ruling-wealthy-money-grubbers. Only these people stated America…the land of the American dream or a group of persons who by virtue of position or education exercise much power or influence stated that America was the most civilized, kind, proper place on the planet earth and everyone should aspire to go there. “No, no you don’t need money, the    government takes care of all of it.”

So don’t worry about laws, or hell, even the language, health care is free, the college education will not cost a dollar –you see it’s America!


Ultimatum: We will only say “No” once; then deal with the US Armed Forces!

Making My Statement

Making My Statement

downloadPlease any reader out there, please check under the Categories drop-down menu to see a list of what’s been written about by me and others on this site, “The Contemplative Thinker.” There can be no validation for this writing without the effect of why?

Therefore, with so much talking about this “Caravan” of marchers coming to the USA to make whatever plea to get in and once in, “make a better life for me.” Please, I ask that you bear with me in some true story events as well as milestones, but the point of my statement will always remain the same.

As a normal childhood boy growing up in Southern California, we were required to take a course in the school referred to as Health and Safety for the Growing Adolescent.  Easily for well over three quarters each and every teacher, educator, or substitute, or parent or whoever was responsible for taking on the class or classes when the person who was in charge did not show up for the day or better still, even when the teachers were there the number one discussion, we talked about, was population control.

In fact, most of our teachers opened their classroom discussions with some type of 494324463 - Copypopulation control. Most of the students thought at the time that it was to about the female students going to the school nurse or doctor to get a referral to their own doctor to be put on the birth control pill.

Don’t get me wrong – sure their constant talk encouraged families, groups of girls, and some boys to attend evening meetings with more information about the pill.

However, with the amounts of tests, surveys, and so on, for the big pharma companies what they did not plan on was the multiple realities of their given topic, population control.

And in due course, a regular surf day became over-crowded, the hitch-hiking trips to our top secret spiritual hot tubs that with each layer and pool they became hotter, to our hush-hush concerts or jam sessions never told to another human being, as well as a favorite guitarist doing tracks at the studio with one invitation handed out – was standing room only, like a free concert.



This is all written with adventures added in the new best-selling book called, An Open Autopsy on America without crunch space, but on we go. What was not explained in our classroom discussions was that when one or two million people came and settled wherever they could afford hardly anyone knew of their existence. Furthermore, when this nation had an active immigration (See Teddy Roosevelt) policy, entire families were sent home and not able to settle here on the basis of inappropriate behavior or assimilated into the American way.

Now let’s leap forward twenty or more years where there are over 12 million illegal aliens comfortably living in any way they wish! Oh yeah, it does get worse.

Now, they have colluded and retained lawyers on the American side of the border and currently are suing the United States under having no 5th Amendment rights. Excuse me, but doesn’t the US Constitution apply to US citizens only?

IMMIGRATION PROTESTSThe way it used to be: There was a time in this nation’s history, in fact, very recent history, when older and retired men found their own way to the border with a rifle in hand and went by the name of “Minutemen.” Giving one’s life protecting their nation doesn’t mean, going to Vietnam, Iraq, Egypt, Honduras, Panama, Germany, Italy, Northern Africa, or those other nations on the earth.

Protecting one’s nation means wherever there is trouble. When I hear these Caravan marchers bragging about “you see the Mexican Guardia, and patiently wait, then they go away…” I get a sense of outrage.

It is because someone (Muslims are famous for this one!) started suing the USA, then someone like a Democrat President Barack Obama had no prominence for vetting foreigners, and let’s not ever leave out Hillary Rodham Clinton for her disastrous promises to those living in poor conditions in Honduras, Panama, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

Facts are folks that we’re running out of room in America to host these people. Say absolutely nothing about “how you can make your own life better in your own country.” Maybe you should ask your own government, “how much money has the USA given to us through US Aide this year?”forward-tout

Just name it – or National Parks are going to hell, why? Overpopulation from illegals. Look at your water system in Michigan, a person can drive from one coast to another and not miss a single car or somebody walking along the road.

At the border would read signs, CAUTION: YOU ARE ENTERING AN AREA WHERE THE US MILITARY TESTS AND USES ACTIVE LANDMINES. Or if the President gave them all out,

Democratic candidates in Texas want the power of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).

Some aspiring Democratic candidates in Texas want to change that. They think we should decriminalize unlawful border crossings.

ICE1282014_0Others on the left want to go even further. They would essentially gut the power of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).

Three candidates running for office in Texas have floated a scheme to remove the power of ICE without actually getting rid of the agency, which has been what protesters and even members of Congress have been advocating over the past several months.

This includes Representative Beto O’Rourke (D., Texas), who is running for the U.S. Senate; Lupe Valdez, who is running for governor; and Democratic congressional candidate Veronica Escobar.

Seriously, just one question for all of them, and whomever outside of Texas who is trying to allow this absurd action taking place.

What the devil (who is in these details!) are you trying to do but to make the US a completely different nation? Please think of sovereignty. For those who don’t already know – to be unencumbered, making one’s own rule of law, while having a healthy regard for the US Constitution, and I believe our leadership needs to read this, not having the need for accountability to anyone outside of this nation. That accountability only applies to those who are here legally.                                    2222222

Most people would say that this scheme is reckless and irresponsible — one that, if enacted, would endanger public safety. And the latest report from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) shows why. Perhaps these candidates should read that report. Certainly, the residents of the Lone Star State should, as they are the ones who have been the victims of crimes by illegal aliens — crimes such as murder, rape, assault, robbery, and the like.

The Texas DPS, which includes among its divisions one of the most storied state law-enforcement agencies in America, the Texas Rangers, collected data on all of the illegal aliens booked into Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and July 31, 2018 — more than 175,000. Excuse me, but every state within this Union should be required to do this – or no money.

Many of these charges are still pending, but these arrests have already resulted in morecapture33(3) than 112,000 convictions, including 225 murder convictions, 12,540 assault convictions, 152 kidnapping convictions, 1,567 sexual-assault convictions, and 1,076 sexual-offense convictions.

The number of crimes committed in Texas by illegal aliens may actually be higher. In total, more than 261,000 aliens were arrested in Texas from 2011 to 2018, of which more than 175,000 were immediately identified as being in the U.S. illegally. However, according to the Texas DPS report, these crime numbers only include aliens who “previously had an encounter” with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “that resulted in their fingerprints being entered into” the department’s “IDENT” database.

Aliens who get into the country successfully without being detected by DHS, but who are later arrested by Texas law enforcement for violating a state law, aren’t in the DHS system and “do not appear in these [Texas] counts.” Yikes.

Scientific American and FALSE NEWS!

Scientific American and FALSE NEWS!

4491DC88-6714-4A20-AEA3297606E561C1_sourceNow as president, he has signed executive orders that restrict entry of immigrants from seven countries into the U.S. and authorize the construction of a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. He also signed an order to prioritize the removal of “criminal aliens” and withhold federal funding from “sanctuary cities.”

Which in my learned opinion is what he should do! Those seeking to deny the mayhem caused by MS 13 are clearly mistaken. Moreover, a simple read of just about any day’s newspaper would declare this conversation by Scientific American false.

Look at this problem from the traffic angle. There are traffic accidents daily in every C6F96EF7-D145-45BB-9CEB8B20F23C0A4A_mediumauthority of sanctuary cities. Pick up a gun, fire it into a person’s head and kill her, then walk out of court scot-free in San Francisco California only shows me that where and when these researchers are getting their source material is false.

The clear travesty behind this “groundbreaking theory analysis” is it is obvious when doing this type of research, it is imperative that researchers compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. This was not the criteria of the research or the hypothesis that went into it.

In my opening statement, actually given by President Trump after his victorious and history-making triumph in the election from a quote in Scientific American stated in its entirety,

“They are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources…We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”

But as far as reporting goes, that message is good enough for a headline – which the did appear to receive their proportion. But this is not apples to apples. It does not take a rocket scientist to read President Trump’s statement and see that there is a word that makes this research qualify for an immigrant to immigrant only. The problem with Scientific American’s research is again in the hypothesis and what is being compared.

C86D0878-243C-45B8-95F536F86CBB5240_mediumIf legal immigrants to legal immigrants are the ones being studied here, then it makes perfectly good sense predicated upon their findings. However, that is not what our president is doing that has had him underscored since the Obama administration with his created loopholes.

In typical Democrat protocol, Scientific American used a scheme for headlines hoping to find a person or people out there that would buy into this oxymoron.  Which is why I’m writing about it. President Trump is talking about the 12 million ILLEGAL ALIENS that have happened upon our nation’s soil. Now, if Scientific American wanted to compare entities they would be comparing illegal immigrants to illegal immigrants they have all broken the law just by being here. Furthermore, they would be examining the impact on public safety and resources, violence, and drugs brought into America by gang members.

So, it would be far more effective for Scientific American to stop their headline debacle and stick to the facts.

Feedback or your comments regarding the current Caravan

Feedback or your comments regarding the current Caravan


GettyImages-632708222-588a63cd5f9b5874ee23b9e9Let’s be reasonable, here shall we? What type of “rule of law” or immigration policy can be deduced from the latest goings on with this caravan of people from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, and of course, some regions from the Middle East?

Recently, in a startling bit of news it was announced, “In a startling revelation, Guatemala’s President announced that ~100 ISIS terrorists have been apprehended in the Central American nation. But why should Americans care about this? A caravan of Central American migrants is currently making its way north.”

Okay then, what are our responses? First, allow me to ask you, are all of you reading for this type of immigration or assimilation or integration? Now then, it is apparently coming from the Democrat Party who is leading the way as far as borders or not to have them; as well as, federally mandated health care; and consequently, the makings of Socialism in our nation.

Normally, I would be eager to write how far fledged is this rubbish and how far is it going to continue to go on? Then I heard the Democrat nominee for the US Senate state that it was okay for any American to suit up with the Taliban and hence go to war against the US soldiers who are in Afghanistan. It was at that precise moment that I must get involved.                  global-food-crisis-1__thumb

So how do I get involved? Number one is the mid-term vote. I have perused my temporary ballot and in Maryland, it is Democrat, Democrat, democrat and on and on. Yep you betcha, my Congressional representative for the 7th Congressional District of Maryland is up for re-election. No! I will not be voting for him. He’s very racist, very Democrat, and appears to be without his wits.

Number two, I need to write for me and to help you understand. Democrats seem to care for everything I am against. Therefore, a little assistance with their party’s beliefs as well as their individual beliefs but where do I start? Nancy Pelosi? How about Elizabeth Warren? (Please see article below.)

I am for America and the rule of law that she portends to represent. If you do not have the appropriate paperwork from Homeland Security or the State Department concerning immigration, turn around and go home. There will be no special circumstances, loopholes in the law or anything else for you. So, how did you enjoy your walk?

Thank you, Judicial Watch!

Thank you, Judicial Watch!

I am an avid subscriber, listener, donator, and member of the most effective watchdog group in our nation, and I don’t mind admitting it. Judicial Watch performs with such impunity making sure that every i is dotted and every t is crossed.

I can still remember the day some eleven years ago that I ran into my first post from Judicial Watch and have been hooked, nah! Addicted for years now. I would never think to take anything away from what this organization comes up with – my challenges come from working on their projects.

But I also don’t mind admitting that with a tiny, minuscule, lead and rolling up the sleeves to get to work and make no mistake about it – this organization still has many to thank and yet, many more owe their thanksgiving to J.W.

Freedom of Information Act, I first heard of it during Mr. Mark Lane’s investigation into JFK mayhem, then J.W. has darn near perfected the act that truly calls for public knowledge. So, for those of you in the know, assist, help, and encourage the real heroes at Judicial Watch.

Tonight, from Twitter, “In a startling revelation, Guatemala’s President announced that ~100 ISIS terrorists have been apprehended in the Central American nation. But why should Americans care about this? A caravan of Central American migrants is currently making its way north.”

Sounds like something we all should get up and get behind.

Simply does not make Sense

Simply does not make Sense

One doesn’t even have to be old-fashioned anymore. Believing in the sanctity of sovereignty or plainly having respect for our own border, taking pride in being an American, and willing to do what it costs to remain a sovereign nation is what is important. Funny how the “Hollyweird” people have not stepped up their rhetoric of late.

GutamalaThe Associated Press reported today, along with yours truly, “Hondurans fleeing poverty and violence, rest before moving in a caravan toward the United States, outside a bus station.

More than 64 percent of Honduran households live in poverty, and San Pedro Sula has one of the world’s highest murder rates.”

Okay, some nations are considered “third world.” And unfortunately, this is one of the criteria. Having a failing economy, people working for fewer wages than what it takes to live on, indeed are signs of poverty. But let’s not forget that third world nations also have politicians and governments. Moreover, let’s not forget that this way of living is not discriminatory, or deliberately attacking the members of those societies.  ss-181018-caravan-migrants-hondurans-21_3b85c05680083d41ba86838d04b48f88.fit-880w

Therefore, what I am promoting is that this does not warrant new rules and policy on refugees. There is not one single bit of evidence that these people are being religious, politics, or discriminated against for this to evolve into asylum seeking. Both President’s Obama and Trump alongside were very responsible for establishing this office of US State Department’s new program of calling  border jumpers and those who end up here illegally under The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) is one of the State Department’s “functional,” as opposed to “geographic” bureaus.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

It is important to remember our defined leaderships declaration of 1951, that clearly states; According to the 1951 United Nations Refugee Convention, a refugee is defined as someone who “owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country…”

Therefore, we are all interested in assisting the third world nation’s economic status, but hey, let’s not be giving entitlements to induce people to walk or ride buses to America. Now by allowing this newly formed project, The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) in cohorts with The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) funds the work of these other international organizations as well as non-governmental organizations to respond to IDP needs as well. I think we’ve all taken issue with $90 million dollars of USAID funds being used in Afghanistan right now as I type.

Sexual Harassment versus Assault

Sexual Harassment versus Assault

th (12)Harvey Weinstein. Louis C.K., Roy Moore, President William Clinton. The list of prominent men admitting to or being accused of sexual harassment seems to grow longer each day. But what exactly is the legal definition of sexual harassment? Please, I implore you or those interested to see the Top 200 prominent men involved and of course, women too. Just click here.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the government agency that enforces discrimination laws, says, “It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include ‘sexual harassment’ or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.”

The U.S. courts recognize two types of sexual harassment in the workplace: quid pro quo harassment and a hostile or abusive work environment.

Quid pro quo harassment is a sexual favor as a term or condition of employment. (The Latin term literally means “this for that.”) A good example is actress Dawn Dunning’s allegation that Harvey Weinstein invited her to his hotel suite, showed her contracts for his next three films but said she could only sign them if she agreed to have three-way sex with him. Prior to all the recent headlines, this type of sexual harassment was believed to be in decline, notes Merrick “Rick” Rossein, an employment law professor at the City University of New York Law School.

494324463 - CopyTo qualify as quid pro quo, a harasser must have the power to influence the professional treatment of the victim, such as whether she’s hired, promoted or receives a salary increase. “If proven, the employer is always liable, even if they had a policy against asking for sex in the workplace,” Rossein says. The favor doesn’t always have to be explicit. It can be hinted at through words or gestures (touch).

Warren, not much about genealogy, alas.

Not much about genealogy, alas.

Donald Trump’s most obvious superpower is his lack of shame, which permits him to do things that ordinary politicians would never dare or survive. But perhaps his real gift is his ability to cause his opponents to beclown themselves.

download (1)So today, baited by Trump’s gibes, Elizabeth Warren rushes headlong into self-parody with a lavish rollout of a DNA test that suggests that she may be (checks notes) 1/1,024 Native American. The DNA test, notable for its imprecision, suggests that Warren may have a Native American ancestor somewhere “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” (Which reminds me that I have an ancestry report around here somewhere suggesting that in addition to my Russian Jewish ancestors, I am also descended from Scottish kings.)

Despite the media hype, the new data seems unlikely to resolve the questions about Warren’s ancestry, even as it opens vast new territory for ridicule. More substantively, she exposes the unutterable silliness of the politics of diversity, at least as it practiced in the Ivy League. Her timing is especially awkward, given it comes on the same day that a trial begins in federal court exploring Harvard’s use of race in admissions.
The Boston Globe reminds us why this matters:

During her academic career as a law professor, she had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995.

There’s no evidence this had any practical impact on her academic career, but the gods of diversity were appeased and just sickened.

The political fallout has been less benign. Having fully exploited the “birther” conspiracy theories about Barack Obama for political advantage, Trump is obviously partial to using questions about racial identity and ancestry as cudgels. So not surprisingly, has behaved with typical Trumpian crassness on the subject, mocking Warren as “Pocahontas,” and telling Fox News last week: “She can’t prove anything… You know what? I have more Indian blood in me than she does. I have none, unfortunately. I have none.”

The mockery and the challenge have clearly gotten into Warren’s head and since she is running for president, she felt compelled to engage with Trump, if only to show that unlike Hillary Clinton, she knows how to fight back. So now we get the Elizabeth Warren DNA show, complete with a slickly produced video. And we are all about to get dumber for it.

The inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics. If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/1,024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back.

The analysis was done by Stanford Professor Carlos D. Bustamante, a former winner of the MacArthur genius grant for his work on DNA. But he notes the limitations on a study of this sort.

To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American. That’s because scientists believe that the groups Americans refer to as Native American came to this land via the Bering Strait about 12,000 years ago and settled in what’s now America but also migrated further south. His report explained that the use of reference populations whose genetic material has been fully sequenced was designed “for maximal accuracy.”

Bustamante’s analysis suggests that somewhere, someplace there are traces of Native American ancestry. Warren, he concluded, “has 12 times more Native American blood than a white person from Great Britain and 10 times more than a white person from Utah, the report found.”
