What constitutes Mental Illness?

What constitutes Mental Illness?

1_death-penalty-1024x576This is precisely the kind of rubbish that defers me not to even read, listen to, or write about. Until the psycho-community can come up with some clear guidelines and definitive definitions as to what being mentally ill is exactly ⸻then I do not think anyone should be given ‘the ride’ so to speak with regards to abusing America’s system of capital punishment.

Therefore, as such, I am left with trying to do what I do best and that my friends concerns writing about the problem.

Upset that people with schizophrenia and other mental disorders have been put to death after murder convictions, lawmakers in a handful of states want to bar the use of the death penalty for people with a serious mental illness.

People accused of murder who are found not guilty because of insanity can serve time in a mental hospital and avoid the death penalty. But many states have a narrow legal definition of insanity — not knowing what one did was wrong. And critics say that leaves many people with mental disorders to be found guilty of capital crimes and sentenced to death.

Well, hold on just a second. Let’s quantify who are found guilty of murder and can indeed be sentenced to a mental facility. What is not being disclosed is the murderer/patient/inmate can be reassessed on a per annum basis and can be pardoned/released from the facility annually.

So, what exactly does being mentally incompetent mean? If it is something along theimages ‘ride’ that Oswaldo Martinez, a 46-year old deaf and mute illegal immigrant from El Salvador charged with the rape and murder of a 16-year old girl in James City County more than 12 years ago, still is not able to communicate effectively and was ruled again Monday unable to stand trial.

Martinez, according to court documents, is accused of beating, raping and strangling Binger, but because he cannot speak and had no formal language training at the time of the alleged crime, has not been tried. Clancy has said previously that Martinez has not been diagnosed with any mental disability, only an impaired ability to understand court proceedings.

Immigration screeners should be made aware of this before looking the other way whilst passing someone on any vetting for visa and/or deportation.

The problem that I have with this type of “judgmental oversight” is simply this, a mother and father are without their daughter, and brothers and sisters are without their sister, even the boyfriend has suffered a loss ⸻for what?

I am one who believes in capital punishment. Statistically, the jury is in. When a society wants a certain crime to end, it will end when the punishment is severe enough. Here are some quick examples: Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) saw a 40 percent drop age in alcohol-related driving deaths in one year as a result of state’s stiffening the drunk driving sentences. And, because of a book, I’m reading now, the author explains nineteenth-century horse thievery that dropped to zero percent when those caught stealing a horse were put to death.

Do you think that a person arrested for dealing drugs would repeat his crime if others killed for drug dealing was happening? California – the stupid liberal state saw a 36% decrease in violent crime as soon as the Three Strike law went into effect. So, Obama and his mates in the Justice department started changing the three-strike rules.

Zero tolerance when it comes to punishment after the crime is committed has the only positive result. Commanding stiff penalties for stiff crime is not about rehabilitation! Sure, it’s nice but about as useful as plea-bargaining or mandatory sentencing that does not happen.

Trump administration talks tough on North Korea

Trump administration talks tough on North Korea

I nighthawkPresident Trump and his top national security advisers briefed congressional lawmakers Wednesday on what a senior aide called the “very grave threat” posed by North Korea, but they offered few details about the administration’s strategy to pressure Pyongyang.

Administration officials emphasized in a pair of private briefings — one open to all senators and held at the White House complex, and one for House members on Capitol Hill — that they were developing a range of economic, diplomatic and military measures in the wake of a series of provocations from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s regime.

Lawmakers said they came away convinced that the Trump administration recognized the urgency of the mounting tensions on the Korean Peninsula, where Pyongyang conducted a failed missile test last week and drew international condemnation for the launch.

But several members of Congress said the administration remained vague about its efforts to confront Pyongyang beyond tougher talk from Trump.

This is where the pettiness begins without any cause whatsoever. Now, the president does not owe to anyone an explanation which is what I have seen and with our overzealous mainstream media lacking any common sense as we have all experienced with President’s Bush and Obama’s administration was constantly showing off our military’s prowess.

Tsar-Bomb

“There was a definite degree of resolving that we’ve got a bad situation on our hands and they’re ratcheting up the importance of this,” said one Republican senator, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to candidly discuss a private meeting. “One of the things that I surmised from it was that as much as anything else, perhaps they wanted to prepare everybody for the fact that this could escalate quickly. That’s my own read on it.” In all respects a very good and contrite answer.

“Nothing is risk-free. This situation is not risk-free,” said the senior official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to outline internal planning. He spoke at the briefing for the senators was underway at a secure location at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door to the White House.

As well it should be. We have had administrations in the recent past that would have done nothing predicated upon they did not prepare accordingly. Just a few issues to clear up my mind ⸻ even if North Korea developed a nuclear warhead, they still need the capability of getting it here. My suggestion is why wait until your enemy has the power? Another thing that has me worried is China.

China is a nation of passers-by. We may think that they will assist as we did in Korea and Vietnam. China still needs to be pressuring this crazy fool in North Korea.

Media again blames Trump for Obama error

Media again blames Trump for Obama error

29906170001_5402776483001_5402762347001-vs
The Department of Homeland Security reversed itself Wednesday saying that a young man, identified by USA TODAY as the first Dreamer to be deported by the Trump administration, had valid protective status despite its earlier claim. Who is “its” regarding the previous sentence?

On Tuesday, the department said its records showed the protective status of Juan Manuel Montes, 23, expired in 2015. On Wednesday, the department said that status was, in fact, valid until 2018.

Now according to record, the facts that this story should have been run as another former President Barack Obama screw up. There came a time (how convenient) when the original DACA efforts had a specific two-three- year expiration date. This date was to be reviewed by DHS and if the Dreamer was in accordance with all facts related to his or her status, then their status would be extended.

The difficulty here in this simple mistake is that Obama allocated an additional two years of Dreamer time unbeknownst to most people in the country. I would suggest that any Dreamer in the country right now should without haste or remorse check in with their local CIS branch or have meaningful correspondence with whoever extended their original dates. Now then, pursuant to Juan Manuel Montes, the Dreamer who said his DACA requirement papers were good until 2018 or even if the DHS made the announcement my suggestion is that he carry and expiration card taped to his driver’s license, credit card, or something on his person.

When any journalist or copy editor; moreover, a person performing as a fact-checker should have caught that this Dreamer insofar as it wouldn’t be difficult for anyone to pick this up – notwithstanding DHS.

Montes, who was deported from Southern California to his native Mexico in February, had been protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama for so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

With all due respect, this issue should NOT bear President Trump’s name whatsoever! How long (perhaps forever), will the mainstream media continue to cover everything that occurs in D.C., as a Trump error? Please see the article above.

On Wednesday, the department said he lost that status because he left the United States without permission and was caught trying to re-enter the country. DACA enrollees must be approved to travel outside the U.S.

However, attorneys for Montes said the only reason he tried to re-enter the country is because he had been deported by Customs and Border Protection two days earlier.

“Juan Manuel has been unequivocal in his assertion that he never voluntarily left the country while he had DACA,” said Nora Preciado, an attorney with the National Immigration Law Center, which is helping in Montes’ lawsuit against the Trump administration. “Rather than continue to provide half-truths and varying assertions, the Department of Homeland Security should respond to our request for documentation. We will see them in court.”

In finale here, what’s up with Nora Preciado of the National Immigration Law Center? Who in this case is providing half-truths? Furthermore, if the DACA extension for an individual requires a personal appearance by the Dreamer themselves…this is the decision a court attorney must gauge his prosecution on.

America, how long will you continue to allow this rubbish to go on? This National Immigration Law Center is the epitome of a special interest group influencing every unsavory congress person with money.

President Trump has received more hostile treatment from the mainstream media than any other president in U.S. history.

President Trump has received more hostile treatment from the mainstream media than any other president in U.S. history.

MRCcharttwoIf I had one wish, it would be that something or someone would STOP this woman from uttering another word. Anyone, please try and explain this to me as well as the population at large. Hillary Clinton on Thursday warned that President Donald Trump could roll back progress on LGBT rights.

Please notice that this law-breaking, washed-up, and political war horse “warned groundbreaking” that President Trump “could” roll back progress on LGBT rights. Nothing groundbreaking bull squat!

“We may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues,” Clinton said in a speech in New York. One of many questions first. What does she want as far as “to lead” on LGBT issues? I am certainly missing something insofar as most of the big advocates for the community have been quiet lately. So, just as always what I see is another Clinton meddling, or look at me sort of trouble.

“When this administration rescinded protections for transgender students, my heart broke,” Clinton said. “When I learned about the proposed cuts in funding for HIV and AIDS research, I thought about all of our efforts to try and achieve an AIDS-free generation.” Oh, my gaud! Nothing like saying her heart broke when the individual states rescinded portions of the Democratic party line bull dodo that Obama set up.

So now, let’s just throw in HIV and AIDS…for what? A New Direction…shall we..?

MRCinterioroverallA new report found that President Trump has received more hostile treatment from the mainstream media than any other president in U.S. history.

According to the Media Research Center, 89 percent of broadcast networks’ coverage of Trump has been negative.

From January 20 to April 9, 1,501 on-air statements about Trump made by experts, voters and reporters were negative, compared to just 186 positive, the study found.

On “Outnumbered” today, Newt Gingrich warned that this is another sign that the liberal mainstream media is drifting further and further to the left.

He suggested that the Trump administration “clean out the White House press room.” “Why would you allow The New York Times or CBS News in the White House press room?” Gingrich said. “They’re your mortal enemies.”

It would be an unprecedented move by the United States sitting president – although I would not surprise me if something along these lines didn’t happen. I feel if data like this from Media Research Center continues, does the man feel supported at all or even are these twisted journalists and “fake news” readers helping our president to achieve his goals on ObamaCare and just the sundries or scandals the former administration did?

Let him work!!

 

Trump, getting it doneFor someone who has strong words about the current state of immigration, Donald Trump certainly has inconsistent ideas about what to do about it. This is according to a writer at the Washington Post, which very much is spinning much the same as the New York Times, lately.

Okay, all of this “flip-flopping” and back again stuff by the mainstream media is making the press look bad and not President Trump. Albeit, these media outfits are counting on the stupidity of the American mind; therefore, causing rioting, angst, and discord for those who are around the president.

As far as I’m concerned there is not a great deal of difference between the way the Democratic congress is behaving and the mainstream media. Both are incredibly ridiculous!

What is the issue with the H-1B visas? For those of you who are not keeping abreast of the latest news, the president’s administration has been pistol clear as far as immigration matters are going. It wasn’t but two, maybe three weeks ago that I became aware of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 21,362 immigrants — including 5,441 with no criminal record.

That’s a huge increase from the last two years of the Obama administration when obama13noncriminal immigrants living within the US had little reason to fear deportation. He has made the life of undocumented immigrants much, much scarier. In other words, Trump appears to have restored, immediately upon taking office, an immigration policy that was abandoned as inhumane.

The impact of Trump’s arrest spike goes beyond the number of immigrants who were actually taken into ICE custody during his first several weeks. The statistics confirm something millions of immigrants were already worried about: that once again, deportation is a constant threat.

Moreover, the number of “Dreamers” deported after being brought illegally to the United States as children and losing their protected status because of criminal behavior appears to have soared in the first few months of the Trump administration.

Immigrant advocates say the rise in deportations of former Dreamers is likely a result of Trump’s executive orders tightening border security and immigration

It is time for Civility

Bowe Bergdahl resizedEither at the end of this writing or unless there is someone out there who can come up with a better excuse, there comes a time when one should be making comments about what our new Presidential administration is having to deal with.

How much more can it be typed? The result of each scandal is just another justification for some person doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. Susan Rice, National Security Advisor to the President had been caught dead center in two previous lies: Although the two were not on the same issue it nonetheless has a great deal to say about a president and his ability to discern competent help.

The two lies that were proven beyond a reasonable doubt were one, on the Sundaybergdahlbowe_032515getty morning news programs she dutifully carried on that the initial cause behind Benghazi, Libya was the eight-minute YouTube video. And, two she again lied about a young man who deserted his unit to become a Muslim and an enemy to his own unit. According to Susan Rice, her voice concerning Bowe Bergdahl was nothing but praise saying, “He served the United States with honor and distinction,” she replied. “And we’ll have the opportunity eventually to learn what has transpired in the past years.”

bergdahlbowe_120216gettyWe all talk of how our government is getting too big. Would anyone think it has anything to; more importantly, our government is too large as it now stands. Every time that a Regulation gets past there simply is not enough people in the know to say anything about it. Worse is the matter that with the incompetent personnel it seems to be so much easier on the people who should be penalized for lack of responsible ethics, or direct lying such as “I never sent anything classified using my email account.”

I for one, am getting so tired of watching mainstream media coverage about over the weekend riots and protesting (violence really) between those against versus those for President Trump. I believe both of these groups – regardless of the amount of money you’re being paid — to know of the unabated talents that your president is exceeding too and towards. President Trump has out excelled old what’s his name, his predecessor, not by talking mind you, but by action.

Time to stop the Corruption Democrats

_35I was reading today about the polling data regarding our new President Donald Trump. Believe it or not, the main question put to respondent’s was did the POTUS have a plan to be engaged with the Assad (Syrian) regime? Of which I’ll assume he did not score well on. It is only the media that would garner an assumption from me.

Well, I do feel at this time that no ordinary person in the USA or World should even be privy to that kind of information. And if they did and was going to leak it, this is where I do have confidence in the folks he has to surround himself with.

As for me, in my experience, a well thought out initial attack cannot be planned to be precise enough! Then let’s look at combat support —these are the folks that are more valuable than gold! The worker bee’s behind everything! It is definitely these soldiers that make the other rough stuff much, much easier.

Again, for me, our air-calvary units are the world’s best, as is our pilots! This, of course, isis all dependent upon the state of their aircraft. The travesty these men and women face is abhorrent. Democrats, please listen! We should not have to be looking in the graveyards or depots of dilapidated aircraft to settle on the missing parts. And to think that a former POTUS allowed this to happen is without dedication; moreover, when I heard that pilots on leave we going to high standard museums to acquire much-needed parts, that among other red lines have gotten us into a mess.

Russian fighters and bombers are now flying over and around Japan. You all should know that Russian battleships have moved to within range of US battleships. Also please do not forget that the Russian’s also have skyway privileges over Syria, not even mentioning their airfield on site.

Schumer cryingdownloadBesides being against everything that the USA stands for, Barack Obama, do you see the errors of your ways? Therefore, I would impress upon the Democratic Party to authorize what the USA needs. And please get your mangy heads out of the corruption and dismay; how about supporting our President? Remember, it was your man who spent 9 Trillion dollars on everything except the military.

“How on earth did you know?”

“How on earth did you know?”

1467920534070It is overwhelming to me at how some people in our country still covet Barack Obama and the fraudulent administration he was involved with for eight years. One can always hope that there will be at least one person that will say, “How on earth did you know?”

For Obama and the rest of his Democratic partners, the gig is up – unless of course, you happen to be one of those people who still collects Elvis Presley memories on occasion. I will stand at the top of any mountain I can reach (which are few) and scream how foolish those of you in 2008 elected that man to office; moreover, I will continue to let everyone know how extra foolish those who in 2012 re-elected the man.

In my new book, I give a phony tribute to his quote that, “It is hard trying to get a very inactive federal government to act energetic in immigration matters.” Let’s just look at what this slothful person has done considering his big mouth and his puny presence to the world.

For what it is worth, don’t you in your heart of hearts believe that his “drawing a red line in the sand” was going to be challenged? Now, after eight years of pandering and literally giving away money, oh, let’s mention it anyway, Obama’s ostensibly unmoving love he showed to the entire Middle East that was being taken away from the USA?

I have a difficult time figuring out who is the Union and who are the Confederates in Syria? However, what hurts, alarms, and baffles me more than trying to figure out who Assad is fighting and why, is in a very direct question, why hasn’t the world order jumped all over this murderer? England is wavering as is France, but what alarms me more than it all is what the devil is Iran, Iraq, China, Russia, and fellow members of the region simply watching him murder and destroy his own people.

Russia, Syria, and Iran..?

CcmKujIWEAAScEQFirst my humblest apologies for the sporadic writing and presence on this my site, The Contemplative Thinker! Just a bit about me, I have been working very, very hard with my publisher and we’re going to be published again!

I must come forthright and share with my readers what really frustrates me. Have you ever found yourself at the gap between either, wanting to unleash your military might or have your government tell you the truth about what is the real deal, or simply giving up and let those who are indeed “neo-viruses” continue to take a nation simply from want (Ukraine) then inducing the many people to either slavery or unhumanitarian deeds to stay alive?

Let’s, just for an instant, look at these three issues mentioned in my thesis statement. Number one, unleashing the power, prowess, and totally demonize those who do not behave accordingly? It is important here to understand what the press reports, what we see and feel in our own country, and again, what we see and feel about atrocities that are currently happening.

Let’s start with, what else, Benghazi, Libya.  Because of its geographic location in relation to Iran, Northern Africa, Iraq, and henceforth Russia just to name a few. How many of us realize that Benghazi, Libya is a port town wherein ordnance (legalized gun, munitions, arterially, bullets, grenades, etc.) armaments of war are shipped in and out of that forsaken region? Yep, Benghazi, Libya where the USA State department literally lost control of in excess 20,000 missiles? This is also where anarchy rolls the streets – armed and loaded?  This is one the precise locations where Russian cargo ships drop weaponry for those involved in the Syrian injustice.

Now regardless of what our beloved and diplomatic former Obama administration did – which incidentally was NOTHING, now, of course, Russia has aligned itself with Iran, Syria, and who knows what else that contrary to the USA involvement for at least 40 years prior – if one were to literally put together Russia, Iran, and Syria it does take up a fair share of livable earth.

So, I am listening to this pundit who feels that economic sanctions placed on Russia may be the key to a war declaration. As long as there is food on Vladimir Putin’s plate, that my dear pundit is not going to work.

Therefore, this is where I believe our own government is hedging a few things; downloadmoreover, this is where the truth would assist all of us. Being 19 Trillion dollars in debt weakens one’s bargaining position. So, Mr. Elijah Cummings D-MD, it looks like your lies have caught up with you.

Furthermore, any action taken against the Assad—Syrian regime is to be countered by Russia. Same hold true with Iran. This bastard is releasing bombs of chemical weapons on his own people ⸻families with infant children have been either sizzling or wishing they were dead. Russia according to the United Nations was the country involved with securing and destroying Syria’s chemical arsenal.

Same Rubbish…different day!

Same Rubbish…different day!

obama-hillary-benghazi-caskets-300x204Q: With all this pre-election Russian intelligence coverage predicated upon one of the Obama administration’s national security advisors, Ms. Susan Rice, one should be asking fundamental and basic questions to wit:

This is indeed the same Susan Rice prior to her commitment to former President Obama’s national security advisory team is, in fact, the same former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who by now has been branded for her lying or misrepresenting the truth behind the entire Benghazi, Libya consular officials office and the reason for the attack there.

The exact same Susan Rice who went on five international television networks as well as many other non-network coverages alleging from a talking points memorandum that the attacks we attributed to an eight-minute videotape that somehow made comments that were anti-Islamic.

It is just as important to mention that her talking points memo was in fact edited by the CIA and the FBI under the guise of Leon Panetta, a longtime political hand who served as President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, oversaw the mission that killed Osama bin Laden as director of the CIA before taking over Defense in 2011.

After 26 months of hearings, public testimony, and in-depth investigation, the committee has uncovered significant failures on behalf of the Obama Administration and the Clinton State Department in the months leading up to the September 11, 2012, attack, indecision and lack of focus or direction during the attack, and spin, finger-pointing, obfuscation and political damage control in the days and weeks following the deadly terror attacks.

You will hear from the Obama/Clinton defenders in the mainstream media that there are “no smoking guns” implicating Hillary Clinton directly in the Benghazi affair, but rest assured, this is just sloppy reporting (and sloppy thinking, for that matter.) A smoking gun is not needed by a thinking person to draw reasonable the reasonable conclusion that Hillary Clinton engineered a foreign policy failure in Libya that ended up costing four Americans their lives. And after that deadly failure, the Obama/Clinton spin machine lied for political purposes.

The issue of lying for “political purposes” is so overdue and relevant in this matter. Please remember the precise time that this attack materialized ⸻ call it 45 days or thereabouts prior to Obama being reelected as POTUS. The evidence is overwhelming that all of the “political purposes” to include, Susan Rice, once an ambassador is suddenly promoted to the national security staff. It was also during this time that Hillary Clinton enjoyed a 75% approval rating for when Obama was done drawing red lines in the sand and allowing Russia to devour anything for its own benefit.

My point is simply this, with Susan Rice now implicated in the intelligence fraud and scandal affair this is, of course, an example of the sloppy thinking by the former administration. Paying people to riot against an incoming president (ACORN, SEIU unions) as well as in voter actions and results. One additional point; Why is Obama living in Washington D.C? And why don’t the Democrats enjoy the headway and progress made by a limited amount of the Trump administration?
