My Mom, Amelia Furnkranz, who instilled common sense in me! Common sense the mechanism clearly
revealing the failure, foibles, dishonesty and corruption displayed throughout our government and
nation today. It doesn’t take a genius to see the corruption and incompetence, spending the nation into
oblivion and the people into chains of oppression and poverty. Scuttling good ship America, sinking
Columbia the gem of the oceans!

In my journey through the years, perhaps I have become paranoid, pessimistic and cynical. Reading my
essays, you might see me as a dark, dismal, bitter human being. The subjects I write about may make me
seem so. In my defense, I write these things to purge the negatives I see in society, from my brain. Such
thoughts forever trapped in my skull a prescription for insanity.
Sitting in the distant bleacher seats in center field, my perceptions may be misguided. On the other
hand, perhaps my eclectic experiences have rendered me some insights into human behaviors and
conditions which I have an obsession to share.
In this tangle of aimless meanderings, weaving a fabric from which you may pull a thread of truth!
Maybe a number of loose threads may find a few concrete thoughts which may spur the thinking of
some. At least for me it provides mental gymnastics giving my mind activity, avoiding these wild ideas
from bouncing around in my skull incessantly, driving me crazy. Purging these thoughts also allows me
peace and rest.
Perhaps I will hit on some views of politics that are political nuggets. Maybe even a little philosophy,
satire or even humor that might strike a chord, firing up some imaginations. Or, my letters, essays and
vignettes may just be an exercise in brainless futility wasting time.
Judge me as you will, for I have studied and accepted who I am through these letters, essays, rants,
raves and life. Be harsh, not gentle because I will not trust you if you buff my butt. Letters and essays
snapshots of my views of society. Politics, philosophies and conspiracies viewed from afar, some
perhaps off base, others maybe on target. You be the judge.
Perhaps a view from a distance produces a clearer judgement on the dirt and filth of the Washington DC
corruption. Those in the government have been so jaded and contaminated by the shenanigans of
corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, they have no concept of right and wrong, legal or illegal.
I pray to God I see our leaders, politicians and bureaucrats, religious, science and others abandon the
path of politicians, self-serving chasing of the dollar and the power it brings. I’d rather transcend the
negative thoughts they force upon me and travel to those more positive and uplifting visions that are
Perhaps we’ll pick up a few gems or discover it’s only fool’s gold.
A stew of tasty ideas, thoughts and observations or perhaps an unpalatable fare!
I consider myself of average intelligence on the low side. Creative, artistic, practical with common
sense. I used to think those in politics and the media were smarter than the average bear. Reality set in
over the years and I began to see I was smarter than them. Where does that leave them?
I may be wrong, sometimes right, perhaps my thoughts might shed some light.
You certainly will find grammar errors in my writings. I know liberal socialists Democrats will use the
misplaced comma, typographical error or nit pick anything to avoid the content of what is said. Their
need to hide from truth. Now days they beat down, intimidate anyone who disagrees with them. Sad,
supposed representatives of the people destroying democracy.

Education Approach Fails, (Leader Letter March 21, 2013)
Thomas Jefferson told us “Good” public education is essential to democracy! I say, “Poor public
education is essential to socialism!” A rationale why our education unions are invested in failure!
Keep this in mind as our school budget process approaches.
An editorial titled “TeachersFirstNY” from the New York Post Monday August 20, 2012 very much
summarized education in New York State and America.
It begins, “You’ve really got to marvel at just how far New York’s teacher’s unions will go to block
meaningful school reform.”
It discusses another group created to distort the debate and from another front of opposition to
keep the unions and their members unaccountable. The group calls itself, New Yorkers for Great
Public Schools (NYGPS)!
The New York Post mocks, “Great Schools” it points out, “For the adults running them, that is – with
good pay and no serious consequences for failure.” Highlighting, “For the kids not so much.”
The education industry actually benefits from failure. Constant cries for more money, they say to
address the failure. The more they fail, the more their requests for money are met. In actuality that
money goes to expansion of profit and power of the education industry.
This is the typical education approach! Throw more money at the education problems.
This provides more resources to the teacher’s unions and education associations which serve to
expand their membership making them stronger and richer but never seeming to improve
education. Effectiveness and efficiency, they run away from because that would mean
Educators Are About the Money, Not Students, (Star-Gazette December 3, 2015)
We must face the fact today’s education is an industry — a business chasing the dollar like any
other. Whether public education or colleges and universities, collecting money is their primary
objective. One could say greed is the motivation. The myth of educating the students comes well
down the list of priorities.
Unlike other capitalistic businesses, striving for success to increase profits, education is much like
government, profiting from failure. Lamenting their failures, they cry for more money to fix, stifling
motivation to get better and improve. Educators, like politicians, have discovered that failure is
profitable in their industries. The failure to educate promotes the future expansion of the education
industry. Failing to create self-sufficient individuals indoctrinates them into socialist dependence,
2 | P a g e
leaning on the education industry for help. No wonder education is being usurped by government
thinking. The objective of dependence is desired by both education and government industries.
Because of this motivation, a majority of educators have become politicians. School superintendents
are trained in political manipulation, as are teachers. Their political agendas and indoctrinating
students into them are the goals of teachers’ unions and administrator associations. Our education
systems are as corrupt as government — for the educator, not the children.
The Art of Cursive Writing, The Leader August 17, 2016
The Education Industry and pseudo-intellectual educators have pushed more money for the arts in
schools for a well-rounded education. They insist such art programs make the students smarter.
On the other hand, cursive writing is being banished from education. Brilliant educators see no
need for that skill. This is an indicator of the lack of vision and foresight of those we give so much
credit for intelligence.
Cursive writing is an art exercise for all students, whether pursuing art or not. It teaches control of
the pen, pencil, brush and mind. Following the curves and adding one’s own creativity to their style.
A school in Georgia had students copying Islamic texts as training in calligraphy, yet cursive English is
being dismissed as unnecessary.
Could it be the Education Industry’s pushing of more money to arts programs is about the money;
not about art? My observations show education leadership is more interested in money than art.
They’re more interested in money than education!
Cursive writing presents an inherent introduction to art with the potential to impart art skills to all
students! Yet shortsighted and money blinded educators cannot see beyond their greed, their
Wording a Concern for School Committee Member, (Star-Gazette Aug. 13, 2017)
Recently I prematurely expressed renewed confidence in education locally, dissipating in one word:
Part of the Horseheads School District 2030 Committee, I gained enthusiasm when our facilitator
professed profusely (red flag ignored) we weren’t being led to a predetermined conclusion like the
Strategic Planning Committee almost a decade ago.
3 | P a g e
Six grueling four-hour sessions covered many tasks including vision and value statements. I fought
embarrassingly hard for integrity to be a value. The committee agreed in next to the last meeting.
When reviewed at the last meeting, integrity was abandoned, deleted in editing replaced with a
nebulous “quality of character.” “Bait and switch!” Duped.
Why is the “education industry” frightened by integrity? Perhaps lacking knowledge, understanding,
interest or their union’s selfish agendas are antithetical to integrity? When on the school board
mentioning integrity, most members would become defensive accusing me of saying they lacked
integrity. Integrity becomes a casualty of politics and personal agendas.
Integrity sets a standard of accountability. “Quality of character” is subjective, allowing convenient
twisting, distorting of definitions, spurning integrity. Without integrity what we declare, often is not
what is! Education without integrity breeds treachery, tyranny; corruption! Character Education that
trivializes integrity is meaningless, a farce.
Education Is All About Socialist Indoctrination, (Star-Gazette July 6, 2017)
Recent interactions have improved my view of local education. However, my view of the “education
industry” on national and state levels continues plunging.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton pushed that all children should go to college, herding students
through the turnstiles for money, ignoring the many failures of college educations. They discount
apprenticeship, experience and self-that bypass a college education.
Their purpose is to buy educators who overwhelmingly support progressive Democratic socialist
dogma. Our youth are not educated, but indoctrinated into Democratic political philosophies,
programming students to be lazy recruits for socialism.
Indoctrinated college students are demonstrating violently against freedom of speech and the
Constitution with Democrats’ support. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s free college is about mass
indoctrination by our education system to his politics, a failing authoritarian socialism. It creates a
lazy, lethargic needy population depending upon a lazy, lethargic leadership that enjoys grazing on
the people’s bones.
Our socialist education industry, an influential arm of the Democratic Party, fails to instill critical
thinking, often punishing it, even stripping students of common sense. Thomas Jefferson said good
public education is essential to democracy. I say poor public education is essential to socialism.

Experience In Politics Not a Good Thing, (Star-Gazette Jan. 25, 2017)
The idea that experience in politics or government makes for a better national leader is sadly
misguided. The founding fathers did not want career government officials who would evolve to
government royalty. They wanted citizen representatives that knew what real life in the nation was
Political experience likely means indoctrination into frivolous spending, massive dollars spent with
little to show for it. It means acceptance of incompetence, graft and corruption. Also, lack of
accountability and responsibility, dragging one’s heals, stalling to avoid getting anything done.
This is why the politicians and government bureaucrats do not want to see those citizens educated
in the private-sector experience getting into government, exposing them to people who are held
accountable, and are weaned on accomplishment and concrete achievements. Not like the
achievements of so-called academics and scholars, which only results in paper they are arbitrarily
graded on or framed and hung on the wall.
Experience in government may very well be a major negative. Just think of the good that could be
done for the hungry, homeless and ailing with the many billions wasted by politicians’ graft,
corruption, incompetence and waste.
Political Norms? (Star-Gazette)
One of the many attacks on President Trump I find very interesting, he does not adhere to or abide
by “Political Norms”! Question, what are those “Political Norms”? From my bleacher seats way out
in center field, this is what I observe them to be.
“Political Norms” begin with extreme, wasteful spending, which then translates to extreme
oppressive taxation. A political class behaving like royalty, using their position of representative of
the people to line their own pockets! Diverting more money to government through incompetence
and waste provides more for the politicians to skim.
Lying during campaigns to get elected which clearly carries over to their everyday service as a
matter of habit seems a “Political Norm”! Deception, hiding from the people activities of politicians!
“Verbal Rope-a-dope” talking in circles incessantly, saying nothing, till people’s eyes glaze over and
minds are numbed. Once seen as rhetoric above our intellect, we now know that used car salesman
BS, their way to make them feel superior and profit.

Then there is “Written Rope-a-Dope” manipulating laws and bills so dishonestly politicians can
interpret them any way they wish!
These the “Political Norms”, incompetence, waste, fraud and corruption, our politicians covet so
A Look at Rule of Law, (The Leader (Corning) March 1, 2018)
Democrats charge questioning the FBI and DOJ jeopardizes America’s “Rule of Law”? Not
questioning those powerful institutions threatens the “Rule of Law”! The dark deep state has forced
me to defend a crude, crass President Trump. Corruption and incompetence by far trump crude and
Democrats accuse President Trump’s concerns of FBI and DOJ malfeasance and corruption in the
Russian Collusion investigation as trying to derail the investigation. They say it threatens
effectiveness of those agencies, thus jeopardizing the “Rule of Law”.
Logic dictates corruption in the FBI and DOJ are far greater dangers to the “Rule of Law” than
questioning powerful institutions of our government. To place them above questioning and
reproach for misguided perhaps criminal action would establish a nest for tyranny. J. Edgar Hoover
Russian Collusion, it appears the DNC spear headed by Hillary Clinton made a Preemptive Strike
against President Trump accusing him of “Russian Collusion”, which they engaged in to defeat
Trump. Failing, the Clinton mafia is out to destroy his presidency, a direct attack against the U.S.
Clinton’s Democrat Party accuses Trump of behaviors Hillary has actually engaged in, given a pass by
Obama’s deep state FBI and DOJ! We see top leadership FBI’s Comey, McCabe, Andrew Weissman,
Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, DOJ’s Loretta Lynch, Rod Rosenstein, Bruce Ohr and Sally Yates up to their
eyebrows in dishonesty, obtaining FISA Court warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and
presidency. Special prosecutor Mueller’s Russian investigation has engaged in questionable
behaviors with his deep state allies.
Democrats and media avoid looking at these issues making them accessories to the corruption of
these rogue government officials. Unfettered power to our guardian institutions of law places heavy
hands on the scales of justice. “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely!”

The Seeds of Corruption, (The Star-Gazette)
While we educate good leadership to cultivate better organizations, politicians and journalists reject
the premise corrupt leadership can cascade down, radiating throughout organizations implanting
corruption. Corruption propagating in society is rearing its’ ugly head in the FBI, DOJ, IRS, media and
Discussion with academics finds insistence no corrupt policies, programs or procedures exist
because virtuous educators would not allow. Dogma often preached in areas incubating corruption.
Humans aren’t necessarily attracted to virtue, generally seeking paths of least resistance,
acquiescing to dishonesty in varying degrees.
Corrupt people attain leadership, incorporating corruption through programs, policies, procedures,
personnel and practice (example)! Leaders bad and good seek similarly thinking followers.
Corruption like gangrene delivers deadly poison to connected body parts! Good people steered
through tainted principles normalize organizational corruption.
Yes, there are people finding corruption distasteful, failing to speak up because they must provide
for families. Those speaking against the corruption are labeled “whistle blowers” and experience
personal destruction launched upon them, losing standing, jobs, careers and livelihoods.
Corruption has a powerful hammer pounding down nails sticking out! Once corruption takes hold,
few confront for retribution is so great. The consequences of avoiding risk; a corrupt society!
Violence in America, (The Leader)
Violence in America, guns only the tip of the spear, the excuse used by a mentally degraded and
morally decaying nation. Many issues lead up to the use of the gun, knife, club and killing hands.
Abortion has devalued the sanctity of life. Barrack Obama didn’t want his daughters being
burdened with children, conscienceless sex promoted, abortions removing unwanted birthing
burdens evolved to conscienceless killing.
Television’s content flooded with extreme violence! Dateline, 20/20 along with numerous other
reality crime shows glorify violence! Fictional crime shows fill the screen with heinous mass killings.
They sensationalize brutality.
Violent video games glorify the art of killing, while desensitizing the children playing them.
A number of years ago in an area in Africa, a gang of young bull elephants were going on murderous
rampages, killing for the sake of killing. Aberrant behavior for elephants, the case studied,
7 | P a g e
discovering those young males were moved in a group to that area from over populated areas.
Without mature male role models, they ran amuck. “Lord of the Flies!” Perhaps good fatherly role
models are important?
Drugging children with hallucinogenic drugs like Ritalin to control them likely catalyzed because
irresponsible parents used drugs.
Corrupt politicians condoning Alinsky methodology encouraging violence to promote their own
agendas! (i.e. Antifa, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc.)
People and politicians are looking for an easy fix for government which seldom fixes anything. That
is part of the government game keeping the pot boiling, so the need for bigger bloated government
is magnified and decades of government failure hidden. There are many more reasons the mental
health of America is degrading and that is the issue with violence in America, guns play only a part of
the final result not the cause.
The Destructive Demolition of America’s Rule of Law (The Leader Sunday October 7, 2018)
America’s Rule of Law, foundation of American democracy is being demolished internally.
California, a cancer initiating this disaster spreading throughout the country! Sanctuary cities flaunt
the law giving criminal’s safe haven, amnesty! San Francisco, one such city ignoring cars being
robbed and people crapping on the streets! Los Angeles has tent cities all over where sanitary
conditions are ignored and crime runs rampant. Illegal immigration!
Democrat socialist like Rep. Maxine Waters encourage the violence of Occupy Wall Street, Antifa
and the like with their inflammatory rhetoric. Violence on streets and even college campuses
against people with opposing ideas is not only accepted, but encouraged. Nancy Pelosi defended a
brutal MS13 gang, members mutilating and beheading people, as downtrodden youths needing
jobs. The Democrat Party endorses these actions. Let’s not forget the attempted assassination of
republican Congressmen on a softball field, likely encouraged by democrat angry rhetoric and
support for violence. This epidemic is spreading rapidly.
Our Federal Law Enforcement and Intelligence institution leaderships are not only bathing in but
exalting their corruption. This includes the anti-Trump cabal of FBI’s (Comey, Strzok, Page, possibly
special council Mueller) and DOJ-s (Rosenstein, Bruce and Nelly Or, McCabe, Holder and Lynch) John
Brennen CIA, James Clapper DNI Lois Lerner IRS and likely numerous bureaucratic leaders cashing in
integrity for power. Ignored Hillary corruption!
Now the “Me Too” movement has changed “Innocent till proven guilty” to “Guilty by accusation”, a
militant vengeful vigilante movement, high jacked by Senators Mazie Hirono and Kirsten Gillibrand.
8 | P a g e
The philosophy of guilt by accusation strongly embraced by the socialist democrats, voiced by Cory
(Sputtercus) Booker, lynching people, destroying lives by mere accusations!
There are many more examples of the plunging into lawlessness, creating chaos and danger for the
American people, as “WE THE PEOPLE” sit by ignoring the destruction!
Government Cultivating Victims (The Leader – Sunday 12-23-18)
Why would leaders cultivate victim mentalities in their citizenry? Lazy, lethargic, lard butt leadership
lacking ambition and vision desire’s such a population, disarming the people of self-reliance, while
shackling them with dependence. Forsaking positive environments, nurturing addictive neediness
traps citizens in socialism, chosen government for incompetent, power crazed leadership.
I have often thought politicians would welcome a drug addicted society, made docile, easily
controlled. Failure to secure our Southern border, surrendering the “War on Drugs” speaks. Some
trace the present opioid crisis to laws passed by Congress. Fentanyl flooding in from China, the US
Postal Service their mule! Blaming our drug crisis on a pill rather than weakened will of the nation, a
smoke screen protecting the guilty!
Guns made the scapegoat for killings, not the distorted mental deficiencies behind the gun? Twisted
thinking human beings given dispensation for criminal acts, inanimate, unthinking, unfeeling objects
tagged with the blame. Reducing human beings to tools of the tools they should control.
Humanizing tools and dehumanizing people, shifting responsibility.
Studies say one of five students entering college have mental problems. Children’s brains are
arrested and undermined by societal progressivism, computers, electronic pads and cellphones
supposed to be great godsends to education. Parents in Silicon Valley are sending their children to
private, electronic free paper driven schools because brains are degraded by addictive electronic
crutches, lauded as the miracle cure in public education. Replay: tobacco industry addicting children
to increase profits!
Government criticizes citizens for not saving then confiscates their money, spending it dishonestly
and wastefully, exemplifying massive debt, modeling greedy immediate gratification. Not planning,
paying many times more on enslaving credit instead of managing finances.
9 | P a g e
Our government, education, social media and main stream media systems are complicit in this
undermining effort. Personal responsibility, accountability, self-discipline, and independence
Who is “Tom”? (The Leader, Sunday January 27, 2019)
“I’m Tom”, an arrogant, narcissistic campaign slogan taking for granted the vote of trusting
constituents. With his condescending attitude Tom has dumped his warm and fuzzy clap trap on us
for too many elections. We have time to consider replacing this falsely home spun Washington
“good ole boy” whose frighteningly empty promise is “I’m Tom”!
I supported with signs Tom Reed for his first two terms, voting recently over the socialist movement.
It appears he has been usurped by the Washington “good ole boys”, the Republican “Cowardly
Corrupt”, hanging onto the donkey’s tail, swallowing their personally profitable socialist crap.
Remember when we said Obama couldn’t solve the problem of terrorism if he could not name the
enemy, “Extremist Islamic Terrorists” based on the premise you cannot solve a problem if you
cannot identify it. Congressman Reed refuses to recognize corruption (waste, fraud, abuse,
incompetence and deception), the underlying cancer of all problems in Washington DC.
Corruption taints, no, pollutes everything coming out of our Federal Government. Laws, news, ideas
people etc., are corrupted by the extremely toxic environment. When Reed glorifies his results, if
there really are any, they are immersed in devastating corruption. Reed takes not the low hanging
fruit to aggrandize “Tom”, but the rotten fruit festering on the swamp floor.
Reed brags about his over two hundred town hall meetings. Those meetings only a song and dance
minstrel show, merely a marketing ploy to say he did something, yielding only corrupt contaminated
contrivances. He fakes listening while formulating long rehearsed canned answers he spouts, not
really hearing what the people are saying. His blindness to Washington corruption the proof!
Tom Reed has become a comfortable member of the cowardly corrupt Republican Party led by the
nose by an aggressively corrupt socialist Democrat Party!
American Barbarism: Infanticide, (Sent to The Leader Feb. 27, 2019 (Not Published))
Is America descending into the clutches of hell?
A baby surviving abortion condemned to a linen closet to die. Similar grisly incidents motivated
legislators to pass the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002 at both state and federal levels.
10 | P a g e
Illinois state senator Barrack Obama opposed legislation classifying aborted fetuses showing signs of
life as a "born alive infant" entitled to legal protection. Viewing those bills as stealth attacks on
women’s legal right to abortion, the same argument against critics of today’s new unconstrained
New York’s diabolical jackbooted little dictator, Governor Andrew Cuomo giddy over his new bill
legalizing the aborting of “unviable” babies right up to birth. Boastful, the bill conceivably a
threshold to infanticide, he declared progress! Cuomo strutting like a Banty rooster crowing
exultant about his inhumanity!
Virginia Governor Northam stated babies could be resuscitated then a discussion to terminate their
life could ensue, characterizing a bill proposed in his state. Crucified for a racist picture in his
medical school yearbook, supporting infanticide ignored.
Boundless abortion laws justifying and legalizing Doctor Kermit Gosnell’s baby killing atrocities.
Ghoulish murderous acts are being sanctioned by American Law! These laws promote profit models
of Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts business.
Steps to take government control over life even further were suggested by Obamacare architects
Senator Tom Daschle and Doctor Ezekiel Emanuel, characterized at the time as “Death Panels”.
Scoffed at by democrats, judging these new limitless abortion laws, withholding of healthcare from
unviable elderly to reduce costs is not farfetched.
Secular subversives seek erasing Christian morality, warring against God and American Judeo-
Christian foundational values. Secular motivators make government religion, ordaining themselves
powerful gods yearning worship. Dominion over life, defining unviability, the right to inflict death
the pinnacle power in their ongoing avaricious socialist quest!
Education Is Unconcerned with Educating (The Leader, Sunday April 7, 2019)
Call me an old crank, but when I was in school political leanings of teachers were unknown. They
taught disciplines building our minds, not manipulating them.
Our Education System has become money centric unconcerned with educating! An incestuous
alliance between the education industry, government and main stream media indoctrinates.
Disarming students of common sense and critical thinking, stripping individuality, shackling them
The “Education Industry” executes major roles promoting socialist agendas, exploiting pre-k through
advanced degrees for brainwashing. While professing critical thinking, they criticize, attacking those
11 | P a g e
thinking independently. Like failed strategies of National Socialist Germany and Soviet Socialist
Russia, they commandeer education, propagandizing the minds of our youth, for profit and power.
Teacher’s unions and administrator associations place selfish agendas well above education of our
youth, dismantling learning processes that strengthened the mind replaced with ones that erode the
brain. Good teachers often driven to mediocrity and worse by powerful union intimidation.
Like government the education industry has formulated methods for profiting in failure, installing
mechanisms to subvert education, leeching more money to feign repairing their sabotage!
• Filling the minds of the young with “education should be fun”, softening them with toys and
games, bastardizing what used to be disciplines.
• Education was to enhance how to think not indoctrinating what to think.
• The miracle educator of the computer was sold as a brain builder, in reality a brain killer.
• Liberally diagnosing children with ADD and ADHD plying them with drugs to subdue
independent restless energy normal to childhood!
• Trading multiplication and division tables and cursive writing for mindless electronics and
thumb driven texting.
• Redefining “Integrity” with nebulously undefined “Quality of Character”!
Self-anointed intellectuals, educators crowning themselves saviors of the future, their arrogant
indoctrination of children may well sentence the children to a debilitating future of hopelessness.
Mueller Wasn’t Seeking Justice (The Leader May 12, 2019)
Obstruction of Justice or Injustice?
Trump is no angel, but by far not the worst of Washington rancid with stench of a long rotting
swamp! Trump scapegoated for swamp failures, incompetence over decades.
Justice, absent from Mueller’s probe of Russian collusion! A gossip based investigation with
information planted by a deep state government cabal of anti-Trumpers to nullify a presidential
Can there be obstruction of justice where there is no justice? Mueller knew within six months Trump
did not collude with Russia. Yet Mueller’s lengthy dragnet avoided obvious Hillary Clinton conniving
with Russian entities, his purpose to lynch Trump: protect Hillary.
Certainly Trump’s rapid fire rhetoric endangers himself with the obstruction of justice charge. Still
many legal experts say charges by democrats are unfounded, illegitimate, and silly. With no crime
found, what is obstructed?
12 | P a g e
Is justice a bias, investigative attack council of haters against Trump, vigilante thugs digging dirt
setting-up Trump for a Democrat “Kangaroo Court” lynching to impeach him? No, it is not! Perhaps
under such conditions, injustice needs to be obstructed!
Representative Adam Schiff of California accuses, Trump with his words fooled the American people.
Schiff lied about having incontrovertible evidence of Trump’s Russian collusion and was a prime
perpetuator of the fabrication costing American taxpayers $35 million for a false and phony
investigation. Who lied and obstructed justice? Democrats and media, power crazed nattering
nabobs of nasty corruption like Nadler, fomenting a coup d'état!
Vigilantes harassing Trump, Democrats, media, academe, and Hollywood profit greatly from the
Washington swamp. Trump’s attempt to drain the swamp threatens their goose that lays the
golden eggs for them and theirs. Like rats backed into a corner, they viciously went for Trump’s
Justice the furthest from prosecutor Mueller’s mind, his goals deleting Trump, tarring, feathering,
and running him out on a rail.
Democrat’s “Big Tent” Socialist Circus, (Sent to Leader June 12, 2019 (Not Published))
Democrat politicians arrogantly act as smartest people in the room. Allying with their reflections,
pseudo-intellectual academics, claiming elite status to implement their socialist agendas!
While they are products of college educations, those seeking the U.S. Presidency and several new
members of Congress Cortez and Omar, spouting rhetoric before their brains engage seem more
likely graduates of Clown College. Hailed as presenting new, innovative ideas, they are actually
foisting on us old ideas which have long proved failing and destructive.
Promoting government taking on healthcare and college for all and “The Green New Deal” would
easily bankrupt America, making us impotent to accomplish anything but poverty. They are
proposing poisoning actions that would degenerate America to a third world country, killing
opportunity, denying freedom and democracy to the world.
The dust jacket of Kamala Harris’s book says, “Harris’s commitment to speaking truth is informed by
her upbringing.” Her commitment appears to misrepresent truth selling historically failed socialism

The Politician, (The Leader - July 21, 2019)
The Webster Universal Dictionary of the English Language, copyright 1936 defines “Politician - A
man of artifice or deep contrivance: a man who adopts politics as a means to his own ends; an
intriguer or schemer.” Clearly a reprehensible, corrupt human being not worthy of the trust of the
This same dictionary glosses over with a short definition of statesman, referencing the material
under politician where it states, “Politician, statesman, diplomat – A statesman may lack the
qualifications essential to success to politics and diplomacy. A successful diplomat may not be a
statesman but he is likely to be a good politician.”
Webster’s New World Dictionary of American English, copyright 1986 defines Statesman - A person
who shows wisdom, skill and vision in conducting state affairs and dealing with public affairs, or one
engaged in the business of government. A senior politician, especially a man, who is widely
respected for integrity and impartial concern for the public good!
These definitions show we’ve historically understood the putrefied, self-serving nature of politicians,
with their inherent dishonesty and corruption. An entity without conscience, destined to
debauchery and rebuffing respectability.
We have seen this so clearly in recent decades, obviously aware of the disgusting nature of the
politicians, but accepted it as “WE The PEOPLE” getting the corrupt and greedy government for
which we have allowed. A prime example is the acceptance politicians will lie during their
campaigns. If they lie then, they will lie anytime lying is expedient and beneficial to their personal
Perhaps politicians lobbied, connived to put lipstick on the politician pig in more modern
dictionaries. Instinctually we know politicians to be scurrilous scalawags, corrupt and
untrustworthy. They constantly show us their colors, yet we continually accept their treachery.

Elitism Is on the Upswing, (The Leader, August 18, 2019)
Snobbery: A lust for elitism, craving dominance
An old saying “the cream rises to the top”, what makes up the cream? In our changing morality,
where words speak louder than actions, that cream can be spoiled and soured. Where the
powerful, often corrupt define elite to promote themselves and questionable “qualities of
character” they possess. A corrupt cabal forming an oligarchy!
Elitism, accentuated by arrogance and narcissism is rapidly trending upwards in America. Three of
the major groups crave society’s power. Media propagandists crowning themselves journalists,
academic indoctrinators ordaining themselves intellectuals and self-serving politicians camouflaging
themselves as public servants! All claiming noble motivations, absolved of wrong doing, because of
gold plated titles they possess!
I remember as a young college graduate in my small home town two other college graduates talking
about how superior they were, talking down those not going to college. One a two year graduate,
the other later became a millionaire which was announced profusely. I thought it repulsive when I
heard it and years after seeing the results. I see in America an infestation of the same kind of
Viewing those elitist groups on television, as if under a huge microscope, their condescension,
dishonesty and hypocrisy festers bursting forward like a massive growing infection. They must avoid
watching themselves to evade their ugly reflections in the mirror. People who are so afraid of not
measuring up, they embezzle mantels of superiority, devaluing others to hide their weaknesses and
failings! Displaying the need to be superior diminishing others and so themselves!
Terms like deplorable, ten teeth types, clingers of Bibles and guns, elitists see “WE THE PEOPLE” as
Producing nothing tangible but patronizing hate, those groups vehemently falsely attack others for
corrupt behaviors they themselves employ abundantly. Demanding political correctness of others,
stifling debate, avoiding inspection of their own corruption!
Socialism’s Fallacies, (The Leader - September 22, 2019)
Socialism defined – “a political and economic theory of social organization advocating the means of
production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a
Pollyanna societal visions, where everyone meets definitions of integrity always, and fairness and
honesty reign supreme!
15 | P a g e
Realistically we must admit the people of our society only have power to attain that through our
representatives. Politicians voted to office by “WE THE PEOPLE”.
Documented in Webster Universal Dictionary of the English Language, copyright 1936 the
“Politician – is a man of artifice or deep contrivance: a man who adopts politics as a means to his
own ends; an intriguer or schemer.”
Putting entire workings of a nation in the hands of corrupt untrustworthy politicians cultivates
treachery in a garden of corruption. “Power corrupts! Absolute power corrupts absolutely!”
Your retort might well be those controlling the means of production, distribution, and exchange may
be no different than politicians. In many cases that may be true. However, I’d rather have that
power and that of government dispersed among more scoundrels than fewer.
The private sector is accountable to profit, failure eventually exposed. Government keeps throwing
our money at their own incompetence. Failure stealthily hidden: No accountability!
We know there is no honor among thieves (politicians), so infighting often exposes their corruption,
if only the people would punish it.
The private sector might produce leaders of integrity, perhaps many if the people begin to reject the
politicians legislating corruption of capitalism for their own greedy purposes.
Supreme power handed over to inherently corrupt politicians fertilizes, corruption flourishes.
Socialist leaders lazily deliver equality, condemning subjects into equal states of poverty, leaders
living luxuriously on treasures stolen from the people.
Socialists epitomize the saying “Given an inch they take a mile”!
Hillary Worse Than Trump, (The Leader, November 3, 2019)
Balancing the Ledger, the Scales of Justice
Acknowledging Democrat accusations blitzkrieg against Trump, let’s balance the ledger.
Accusations of Trump’s Russian Collusion Mueller investigated over two years taxpayers paying $35
million, no collusion found.
Hillary’s Russian Collusion ignored. Hillary’s Democrat Party paid for fictional dossier, written by
foreign agent Steele, tied to Russia, smearing Trump. Hillary’s Uranium one deal, Bill Clinton
received a half million dollar speaking fee, Clinton Foundation received $2.35 million Russian
16 | P a g e
donation which Hillary financed her campaign staff between presidential elections. Russian election
interference and Quid-pro-quo? Bill Clinton met with Vladimir Putin at the time.
Obstruction of justice
The firing of James Comey the primary example of Trump’s obstruction of justice. Comey’s
behaviors, warranted firing.
Hillary’s obstruction of justice
Hillary’s private server initiated to hide her actions, (premeditated corruption). When subpoenaed
by FBI/DOJ she deleted 33,000 emails, wiped clean the server, destroyed all related cell phones and
computers. Clearly a blatant obstruction of justice. Comey’s bias investigation of Hillary a partisan
coverup. Bill Clinton’s secret meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an airport tarmac
during the bogus Hillary investigation.
The State Run Media
Charges FOX is a state media. Statistics show Fox ran nearly equal amounts of Trump negative and
Main Stream Media ran 90% negative coverage against Trump, obviously deep state compliant
Consciousness of Guilt
Having notes of phone meeting with Ukraine president on a secured system because of previous
leaks characterized as “consciousness of guilt”.
What about the multitude of Hillary’s actions obstructing justice “consciousness of guilt”? (Private
email server, destruction of subpoenaed materials, etc.)

Trump: The Political Heretic (The Leader – December 8, 2019)
Impeachment: Billboard to Destroy Trump
Impeachment drama merely a national billboard publicly cheerleading hatred for Trump, a
17 | P a g e
An effort to destroy President Trump and his bid for re-election. The 24 hour news cycle provides
barrages of smears, gossip from a Democrat party with nothing positive to offer people. It is akin to
throwing as much crap at the wall and seeing what sticks. I would call it “Blitzkrieg Slander”! The
only hope lazy, lethargic, visionless, socialist Democrats have of defeating Trump. It reveals the
incompetence and wretchedness in the Democrat party.
Impeachment began as a one party investigation behind closed doors. Evolving to a regimented
choreographed unholy inquisition. Like the “Holy Inquisition” of the middle ages, this impeachment
is designed to tar and feather a political heretic. Someone who confronts the secular orthodoxy of
the “Good ole boys and girls of the federal government Washington cabal”!
That heretic is Donald Trump! He threatens feathered nests of the political elite. The businesses
they have established in government, providing them riches and power, even though they are lazy
and incompetent. They produce nothing but laws oppressive to the people, yet lavish in luxury for
their fraudulent efforts and accomplishments. Still, they have managed to hoodwink us they are
superiorly smart. The cloak of superiority and elitism hides the corrosive incompetence and
corruption of egotistical politicians.
Their intelligence focused primarily on politics. An area of study which is dishonest, fraudulent and
corrupt. A dark and dirty sewer where the rats and snakes thrive. These crooked people we place
on the pedestals of leadership direct our paths to mediocrity, then destruction.
Trump threatens the cushy positions politics has provided these slimy swamp creatures. Like rats
backed into a corner, they are viciously going for Trump’s throat to eliminate scrutiny, his threat.
Exorcising Political Heretics (The Leader January 26, 2020)
I appreciate Mr. Acomb, of “Frankly Speaking” guiding me to the rebuttal letter in the Leader.
Attention must be paid to Flo Fender, pointing out hyperbole and emotional ranting of my Dec. 8
letter. As a child asking my mother a word’s meaning, she repeated, “Look it up in the dictionary.” I
immediately looked up hyperbole and Flo was right! Her Dec. 22 letter exhibited expertise in
hyperbole and emotional ranting requiring I take heed.
Though, I will admit my hyperbole is adept and my ranting is cool and calculated, controlled
emotion. My letters are on the drawing board, refined numerous times, at least a month, choosing
my words meticulously.
My comparison to Democrat leadership’s and Mainstream media’s impeachment attacks against
Trump as “Holy Inquisition” and Trump being punished as a “political heretic”, inspired! Not
adhering to the dogma and orthodoxy of Washington’s “Political Norms” is deemed heretical and by
their politically correct corrupt standards must be punished with malicious termination.
18 | P a g e
Too, I must thank her. Her letter masterly summarizes the multitude of specious accusations against
Trump. Fastidiously following anti-Trump propaganda’s contrived attacks, not facts!
Democrat Party’s and their media’s massive hypocrisy, accuses Trump of all the crimes Hillary and
they have committed. Their lust for dominating power cannot accept contrary thinking. They must
stamp it out. Revenge of the swamp! Hence, their push to destroy Trump.
Socialist Democrat inquisitors want to exorcise perceived demons, in reality “We the People”, a
macabre sinister mirage hovering over the vast wasteland of their desired socialism, threatening
their power grab.
I knew nothing of Flo till her letter. If attached at the hip with the Democrat Party leadership, let the
chips fall where they may.
Flo, thanks for igniting a spirited debate. Honest debate is a healthy exercise in revealing truth,
The Impeachment Conspiracy (The Leader Sunday March 1, 2020)

House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing enlisted constitutional law professors
pontificating high crimes and misdemeanors. Three recruited by democrats, republicans allowed
Harvard’s Dr. Feldman, Stanford’s Dr. Karlan, and North Carolina University’s Dr. Gerhardt, exhibited
cravings for Trump’s head. Snarky democrat prejudices against Trump, raised cautionary red flags

Dr. Jonathan Turley, impartial, liberal Democrat shunned by Democrats, like liberal Democrat legal
scholar Alan Dershowitz’s judicious approach to impeachment, branded them persona non grata.
Judiciary Committee hearing followed similar “Holier Than Thou Inquisitions” like the “Intelligence
Committee”. Witnesses testifying witnessed nothing, bias gossipers spreading Democrat’s hate
driven character assassinations.
Democrat’s notorious liars Nadler and Schiff, leading vigilante mobs to lynch Donald Trump.
Mimicking obliterating of supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation. Like the old west,
hair trigger lynching motivated by blinding hate filled anger.

“Articles of Impeachment” to the Senate for a month.

THE BEAT GOES ON!!
Socialism, Government of Fear (The Leader, April 5, 2020)
Socialism, Government of Fear, Oppression, Poverty
Socialism, governments of fear and oppression! Germany and Russia of the early 1900s employed
both in their brutal takeovers of nations.
Germany (National Socialist Party) began fortifying the fears of a nation punished heavily by losing a
war and the effects of a great economic depression post war. Russia (Union of Soviet Socialist
Republic) trading oppression under the czar for revolution replacing one oppressor for another.
China’s Mao, guaranteed people meager subsistence.
Socialists promising people ownership equality was false, to slip ruthless, incompetent leadership on
thrones of power and luxury. In our democratic republic violent takeover of government unlikely.
The same methodology of fear and oppression is applied sneaking socialism into America.
Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel declared, “never waste a good crisis” to induce fear.
Then they created crisis to frighten people prodding them toward slippery slope socialism, threshold
to communism, dictatorship, fascism etc. Dismantling America a freedom at a time using these
“Chicken Little” tactics “The sky is falling” fabricating fears, implementing oppression, the course of
all socialist dictatorships.
Many methods of instilling fear into Americans are being deployed. Nobel Economist Paul Krugman
once suggested declaring alien invasion from outer space would coerce Americans accepting greater
government control and spending. Following Krugman’s trickery conniving socialists introduced

Socialists would stymie capitalist prosperity for the shared poverty of socialism, the equality they
glorify. Socialist leaders live in luxury laying waste the lives of citizens beneath them.
Coronavirus, Ally to Socialism/Communism (The Leader, May 10, 2020)
DANGER! DANGER! Will America survive?
Coronavirus fatalities could reach beyond tens of thousands. Economies greatly damaged, unknown
catastrophes of looming chaos.
Businesses, industries, brakes slammed, chain reaction shutdowns, jamming gears of economies.
Bankruptcies, massive failures, resources for business startups unavailable. Sources, transportation
networks and distribution centers impotent. Possibilities, more havoc by devastation from wrecked
economy than by the pandemic.
Exploitations, unscrupulous politicians canceling American’s freedoms, mismanaging the virus.
Martial law mentioned casually, perhaps pursued by power crazed politicians twisting people’s
democracy into totalitarianism. Strategies stripping people’s freedoms lurking in dark political
minds. Restricting, isolating, exiling society, preemptively syphoning civil liberties, long underway,
increasing pace. Tasting power, politicians connive not to relinquish it. Martial lawlike behaviors
offer opportunities for giant government gobbling up democracy and vomiting tyranny upon us!
“The Green New Deal” designed for that exact agenda. Destroying our economy, herding people
like cattle to slaughter houses of socialism/communism. Now, travel restricted throughout the
country, fossil fuels used far less, results desired by “The Green New Deal” zealots. Allying
themselves with Coronavirus would reach their power usurpation objectives?
Population control part of “The Green New Deal’s”, government. True character displayed culling
populations with abortions, for birth control, late term, partial birth, even after birth. One socialist
media fanatic declared Coronavirus beneficial to Climate Change/Global Warming agenda, killing
mostly elderly, likely opposed to “Green New Deal”.
Beyond facades of concern, elite’s behaviors reveal inhumanity. Stacking people, like cord wood, in
cities for greater control of population, their agenda, UN’s Agenda 21, would multiply effects of
21 | P a g e
plagues and oppression. Would utilizing war and plague become weeding out tools, using “we the
people” as worker ants, expendable, disposable trash?
Corruption and incompetence wielded by power mad politicians and plutocrats, pave paths to
socialism. Government official’s lust for dominant control!
Who’s Watching Them Now? (The Leader May 31, 2020)
School budget time again! Wonder who’s holding our districts accountable? Not kowtowing,
compliant board members there for personal, selfish issues! Relying on organizations run on
government models, where money is the solution, like education, is foolish negligence.
Corning’s Sylvia Huber, Tom O’Brien and Lou Watson once confronted questionable conduct of the
district. Sylvia sacrificed much time, energy, popularity, perhaps her life keeping the district honest.
In Horseheads I served on the school board and a couple of time consuming committees only to find
the deck stacked insurmountably by educators in their favor. Methodology of deflection, stalling,
hiding and lying, education’s prevent defense, rope-a-doping questioners.
Educators do pretty much what they want. The education industry sets up systems comfortable for
themselves, detrimental to students. On the micro level, locally no one confronts them anymore.
Given that freehand there is absolutely no reason for them not to stray to mediocrity and
On the macro level, we see the corruption in education running rampant. Only certain ideas and
ideals allowed on campuses. Diverse thoughts and theories banished and punished if voiced. Rich
buying the “Golden Tickets” to supposed prestigious universities which gives them another “Golden
Ticket” to the power positions of society. Control of the country given to overinflated, indoctrinated
Free college designed to pour tax money into social engineering, brainwashing the entire
population. Independent critical thinkers be damned. Automatons led by their noses by elites,
socialist, visionless, and lazy. Make no mistake, higher education controls public education, our
Without tenacious citizen watchdogs like Sylvia Huber, our education systems, like government, will
most certainly drift toward incompetence and corruption. That degradation causing decaying of our
nation. Guardianship must pass to younger generations, shouldering the duty to confront these
institutions gone awry, bringing integrity back into vogue.

American Democracy Balancing Precariously (Utica Observer-Dispatch, Aug 16, 2020)
Sent to The Leader August 14, 2020
“May you live in interesting times” an old Chinese well wish or curse. We are living at a point in the
life of our democracy philosophers like Alexis Charles de Tocqueville and others predicted the end of
democracies life expectancy ranging about 250 years. America’s democracy is balancing on the
point of a pin. Corruption among the royal leadership is a caustic poison that drips down to the
In 1787 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh, said this: “A
democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of
government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote
themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always
votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result
that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a
Professor Tyler continued with these eight steps of a democracy:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence to bondage
We seem to be on pace to make Professor Tyler’s predictions come true. Our ancestors took great
risks, sacrificing sweat, blood and life, to free themselves from the bondage of monarchs, despots
and dictators. They fought hard for the treasures of freedom. It appears recent generations are
surrendering those freedoms in the most cowardly of capitulations, rolling over like dogs to be
leashed in bondage. Settling fat, happy and lazy, back again to emaciated and down trodden.

Elitist Intellectual Bottom Feeders (The Leader September 13, 2020)
Coining phrase, “Elitist Intellectual Bottom Feeders”, people fancying themselves smartest, superior
beings, corruptly elevating themselves. Quislings subverting “We the People”!
Perspective, Webster’s Universal Dictionary of the English Language, copyright 1936 “Politician - A
man of artifice or deep contrivance: a man who adopts politics as a means to his own ends; an
intriguer or schemer.” (Editor’s note: This definition dates back to 1755 dictionary compiled by
Samuel Johnson, who was a writer of humor and satire.)
Pinpointing Nancy Pelosi, hailed skilled politician. Elitist intellectual bottom feeder, arrogant, self-
serving thugs, fits Pelosi’s modus operandi! Her conscienceless, ruthless corruption ravages
America(ns). Asked about destroying monuments, Pelosi answers haughtily, “That’s what people
do!” Maliciously tagging Coronavirus, Trump virus, absolving China!
House Speaker, third most powerful in government, royalty, rubbing people’s noses in her hundred
dollar a gallon ice cream, hair salon privileges, while American’s tighten their belts to extremes.
Pelosi ostentatiously flaunts her Queen Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake”, attitude.
The hypocrisy of spoiled, royal brat bros Cuomo, Beavis and Butthead. Staunch supporters of
violence, looting, ransacking and burning. Chris exaltedly lectures people to stay home in
consideration of others during Coronavirus. Pontificating, carrying the virus, strutting outside, no
mask, he debases citizen questioning him. Dictator Andrew decrees those with virus sent to nursing
homes, exposing most vulnerable elderly, facilitating almost 11,000 deaths. Intent on saving lives?
High marks for leadership? Really! Masters of “Highness Hypocrisy”! Political royalty cut from the
Pelosi tree of elitist pseudo-intellectual bottom feeders.
Pelosi cloned an entire army of arrogant, self-important, parasitic political bottom feeders. Joe
Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Adam Schiff, Gerald Nadler, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, Kirsten
Gillibrand, just to name a few. Democrats practicing supreme hypocrisy without shame! Never
flinching even when videos prove their fraudulent hypocrisy. “The Backstabbers”! Their
entitlements awarding sociopathic privilege!
While cowardly corrupt Republicans kowtow to bottom feeders, main stream media and academics,
exploiting people for power and profit, complicit!
Biden’s Lyin Times (The Leader October 18, 2020)
Joe Biden’s 1987 presidential run he claimed graduation from Syracuse with three degrees, was in
the top half of his class, was only student in his class with a full academic scholarship and was
named the outstanding political science student. Those statements were lies, scamming the nation!
His excuse, “His memory had failed him.”
24 | P a g e
Biden received one degree, in the bottom 15% of his class, on a partial scholarship and not named
outstanding political science student. A seriously failing memory, a compulsive, pathological liar,
perhaps dangerously delusional. All probabilities, any would disqualify him for the presidency of
Pile up President Trump’s foibles and those false transgressions he has been accused, do not stack
up against Biden’s half century corrupt history. Failing memory, pension for lying, plagiarisms and
telling tall tales like “Corn Pop”, to enhance his stature, a lifelong delusional pattern.
Democrat’s falsely charged Quid-Pro-Quo with Ukraine against Trump. Truth of the charge clearly
falls on Biden bragging to media withholding Ukraine aid unless the person investigating Burisma,
with whom his son had a lucrative deal as a board member, was fired. Riches to family a trend!
Biden charged stupidly, Trump responsible for all Coronavirus deaths, saying there should have been
none. Biden regularly accuses Trump of his own corrupt behaviors, without wincing from shameless
lies! Biden, perhaps a sociopath, or just plain stupid!
Biden’s career spread with manure. Media the farmer plowing the stench under. Main stream
media’s hatred of Trump has them propping up an empty suit, shallow Joe. A dim bulb, burned out,
no, broken! All the Dems forces and all the Dems, can’t put Joey together again. Democrats, with
media are selling the people a rotting bag of delusional deceit, hypocrisy and corruption.
A Tsunami of Corruption (Sent to The Leader September 12, 2020, (Not Published)
I mistrust politicians, their proclivity for corruption! Democrats aggressively corrupt, Republicans
cowardly corrupt, joining Democrats for lucrative intercourse! Corruption tsunami, elections awash!
Democrats sold their souls to Saul Alinsky’s methodology, “End justifies Means!” Barack Obama and
Hillary Clinton avid Alinsky apostles, zealot disciples, injecting fanaticism into Democrat Party!
Goal: destroy Republican Party, granting Democrats total power. Establishing one party rule,
fascism! Next destroying American Democracy, clearing for socialism’s oppression and poverty!
Socialism shackles people with deceitful promises, enslaving peoples!
Casting doubt on our elections instrumental for destruction of our democracy. Democrats throwing
stupid last minute rules clearly contrived to manipulate election, intended to steal and soil voting
process positioning for extinction of democracy.
They talk integrity of elections as though it exists. How can there be election integrity, when
politicians, inherently lacking integrity, are election centric! Dark clouds of election fraud pollute
2020’s presidential election.
25 | P a g e
Democrats embraced election fraud for years, media and education a triumvirate of political
corruption! Partisans like Juan Williams emphatic there is no proof. History of dead people voting in
California and other states. Precincts in Ohio and Philadelphia PA having not one republican vote,
statistically impossible. Massive malfeasant mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, blinding election
observers! Yet Democrats relentlessly deny existence of voter fraud. Why? They are election fraud
experts, lucrative tools they covet!
Democrats use deception, hypocrisy and corruption as tools of their trade! Hatred for Trump, who
threatened their profitably productive swamp, ignited ruthless hostile insurrection. Democrats
dropped any pretense of integrity, contrary to Michelle Obama’s statement, “When they go low, we
go high! In fact they abandoned any semblance of truth against Trump, falsely accusing him of
everything they have done and are doing. Nothing too dirty, too corrupt to destroy President
Blazing the path to America’s future? America’s demise?
The Swamp Exposed
Whether intentional or just happenstance, President Trump has gotten the shameless Washington
swamp to expose itself. From congressional democrats and republicans, to the deep state
appointees and bureaucrats to the main stream media.
Often it seems outrageous Trump decisions often force the lumps in congress, to get off of their lazy
asses and make decisions they have long avoided. Our representatives possess so many negative,
even corrupt traits. Lying, cheating, hypocrisy, stealing, slothfulness, incompetence, deception etc.,
just to name a few!
I have no doubt Donald Trump is no saint. Business is dirty, especially in big cities like New York,
Chicago, etc. Government and politicians have great influence on creating an atmosphere of that
dirt and corruption with their regulatory laws that reward their supporters, (crony capitalism).
The dragnet cast by the swamp to destroy Trump is massive. It includes all branches of government,
legislative, judicial, even the executive. It is not merely the Washington swamp, but a swamp that
stretches from New York to San Francisco and Los Angeles to Florida, yes, covering the entire United
States like a toxic foggy fart. Still it goes even farther to Europe and who knows how much of the
world it encompasses.
While it looks like the swamp will go to any extent to destroy Trump, illegalities, lying, fabricating,
hypocrisy, slander, Mueller’s dragnet for dirt, the Democrat and Republican Parties and the main
stream media’s collusion in this effort will only heighten this tidal wave of corruption to destroy
26 | P a g e
Even if it doesn’t destroy Trump or get rid of him through impeachment, corruption will remain,
growing the monster eating our government. It was there before Trump and having exercised its’
power, it will be even mightier after Trump. There is no one with Trump’s hutzpah in the wings!
The Consequences of Lies and Lying
Well known celebrities like psychologist Doctor Laura Schlessinger and Judge Judy Sheindlin declare
children lie and there is little that can be done about it but expect them to lie and mistrust them.
Seems a poor way to bring up children, not holding them accountable for truth!
I recall an October 17, 2000 editorial in The Leader stating, “As far as lying and cheating go, while
obviously wrong, who didn’t look at a neighbor’s paper during a test? Who didn’t come up with
some outlandish story about missing homework?” Was this a futuristic gaze into journalism and the
integrity of our nation?
It is not surprising the downward direction society is headed. When it comes to honesty we treat
our politicians the same way we treat the children. We expect them to lie, mistrust them, but avoid
the teachable moments failing to hold them accountable teaching them to value honesty. This
approach will take our nation to a very dishonest place, perhaps the ruination of America.
As I see it Democrats lie almost 100% of the time. Selling socialism, global warming, the green new
deal, national health care etc., requires monumental dishonesty because socialism is so far removed
from economic practicality. They are aggressively corrupt to secure the power they crave.
Republicans lie about 50% of the time because they are lazy and afraid. They fear the aggressively
corrupt Democrats because their defamation tactics of racism, sexism, homophobia etc., can ruin
their career of a cushy, profitable bilking of the American people.
Neither can be trusted! If someone lies to you 10% or even 5% of the time, you really cannot trust
them because you don’t know when they are lying or not! Lying is a dangerous and destructive
Aristotle’s Reason and Truth
Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty and Levin”, asked Fred Dryer what influenced his political views. Dryer
answered, “Truth and Reason.” Levin pointed out that was from Aristotle.
Interested, I googled Aristotle and “Truth and Reason”. Over my head trying to comprehend these
great philosophers, well beyond my ability to grasp the complexity of their thinking. I tried trudging
through some of the explanations.
27 | P a g e
Arguments ensued between followers of Plato and Aristotle over the role of reason in confirming
truth, both recognizing this as one of the essential questions of philosophy. Human beings use logic
to reach conclusions they feel are more concrete than basic sense perceptions.
Boiling these ideas down to fit my simpler mind, even failing, I might come up with an
understandable philosophy. Deducing that truth was somewhat straight forward, but could be
influenced greatly by reason, so truth was not all that apparent. Reason could waylay truth through
reasons rationalized by personal agendas and emotion.
Truth requires reason which consists of many attributes like reality, honesty, data, facts, logic,
common sense, etc. Today our politicians on all sides avoid truth by hijacking it with reasons:
excuses. Particularly the approach of the socialist Democrat Party! Their actions tailored to fit their
bogus truth tied to their personal selfish agendas. Aimed at gaining power for themselves, without
concern for the people they are supposed to represent.
Politicians, especially socialist democrats, have bastardized reason (logic, the scientific method,
common sense) making it reasons (motivations, agendas, excuses, pretexts, cons) to justify their
selfish actions to the people. Substituting reasons for reason, warps the truth, making it their truth,
reasons excusing lying.
It seemed to me “Truth and Reason” could be reduced to one word, the common denominator of
INTEGRITY. Not today’s deceitfully overused “quality of character”!
Aristotle’s Reason and Truth 2.0
When first encountering “Aristotle’s Reason and Truth” I saw it as a winding maze of complexity.
Wandering in the maze I came to realize it was really quite simple.
To get to the truth reason provides the most direct path. Reason made up of things like honesty,
facts, logic, common sense, the scientific method and more. It amounts to using concrete elements
to look at issues reasonably. Viewing problems and plans with honesty.
The strategies today are marketing reasons, not reason. The goal is manipulating minds, reasons are
established to brainwash. Contrived reasons manipulate thinking to the goals of those seeking
privilege, position, power and profit to dishonest ends.
Often directions detrimental to the vast majority of people. (Examples: “Political Correctness”
stripping freedom of speech and debate. “Gun control” nullifying freedom of defense. “Climate
Change” alias “Global Warming” usurping many freedoms in general.) Stealthily stripping us of
freedoms, preparation for subjugation.
28 | P a g e
Reasons consist of excuses, false narratives, cons, all lies in general. On “Adam Ruins Everything”
they pointed out people confronted with truth, defensively hunker down in their ignorance,
doubling down in untruths they have accepted.
The suggestion to overcome this was, keep repeating the truth so they hear it more often. Sounds
like a plan?
However, those citing reasons for their actions and goals, have long discovered that key. Hitler’s
“Big Lie” stated, tell the lie enough people will believe it. Marketing lies repeatedly, pounding lies
home, forges illusions of truth.
In America today those espousing reasons subvert truth. Many with big voices and access to many
ears. The Democrat Party, Media, Education Industry and Hollywood have huge platforms,
megaphones to spread their reasons, propaganda, distorting, subverting truth.
Entities pounding home dishonest messages have scuttled truth and reason to extinction, along with
“Ignorance of the law is no excuse”! With the millions of pages of laws written by our governments,
the only way we could not be ignorant of the law is if we the people were all computers.
All those laws are to instill confusion and put “we the people” at the mercy of government and
politicians. Continuing to horde more power, they oppress, not protect the people with these laws.
They can drag any citizen they feel is a threat to them in any way before the courts with some inane
law to silence and confine them as in Kafka’s “The Trial” a way to control the people.
I have no claim to fame other than being myself. I thought I had one possibility, a word I thought
invented since I couldn’t find it in any of my dictionaries. Then I googled it and found it does exist.
Still I think deserves attention. Complexify – To make things more complex! Complexifying is making
language, therefore communication more difficult to understand. Those in and seeking power can
use such methods to hornswoggle the people.
Legislators made up of lawyers compile laws with words difficult to understand by common folk.
Likely designed with that legalese to ensure the need for their profession, lawyers!
Educators have done a similar trick, inventing educanese, language that gives academics the
advantage when seeking more money to be shoveled to their profession. Like politicians, more
money entering avails more to be skimmed.
29 | P a g e
Using big ambiguous words is another method to complexify. Spiking speeches with ambiguity
contradiction and hypocrisy! Like included in long contracts and on line agreements, the small print.
Add talking in circles, long interludes chaining together long list of meaningless words, coming to no
conclusions, making words unintelligible, a typical approach of politicians and pseudo-intellectual
Nature of Trust
A little friend enlightened me about the nature of trust. A tiny chipmunk I courted for friendship
after a time climbed up my leg, into my lap, eventually sitting in my hand and eating. Even going
into my jacket pocket! He was so cute. As he sat in my hand, fuzzy and warm, his little heart
beating rapidly, I wanted to close my hand around him. But I knew if I did, the trust would be
broken and it would never be mended.
Trust requires truth! Little truth comes from the poisonous marsh gases emanating from the
When caught in indiscretions politicians always lay smoke screens, hiding their dishonesty in a hazy
fog doubling down on deception. They ponder “what do I have to say to regain trust?” Obsessed
with marketing an illusion of trustworthiness instead of being honestly trustworthy! Easy answer,
tell the truth! Be worthy of trust, not marketing with words to feign trustworthiness. After years of
dishonesty trust of the people does not come back with one honest utterance. It takes years, an
extended visible behavioral trend that can be destroyed by one indiscretion.
Even FOX News pundits speak like trust can be regained simply. Not So! Trust lost is a Herculean
task to rebuild. Most politicians and media people who lie and fabricate as a reflex are ignorant of
the nature of trust and truth. They lack moral wherewithal to be trusted let alone earn it back.
Trust is like a fragile piece of porcelain or glass. Once shattered it is very difficult to put back
together. Especially for those who depended on marketing a façade of trustworthiness as their way
of life. A dishonest use of marketing to feign honesty! Deceit the major tool of their trade!
Sincerity of Politicians
Politicians apologize profusely when cornered with their indiscretions. Not when caught. Then they
double down with dishonesty and deny, deny, deny. Only when they see there is no escape and
they are trapped dead to rights in their corruption do they concede.
30 | P a g e
Then they apologize. They claim regret for their actions when they only feel regret for their being
ensnared in their own web of corruption. They feign sorrow and humility all designed to fool the
people, leaning on the character of forgiveness in the American people.
“We the People” should only grant forgiveness if the offender is truly repentant. Seldom are
politicians truly repentant. They fake that sorrow as they do sincerity to fool the people as they
have always done. Lying with their campaign promises promoting their everyday dishonesty, they
cultivate personal agendas that are in conflict with the good of the people. The forgiveness of the
people only emboldens them.
We see them constantly lying and cheating the people, long histories of practicing corruption. How
can we even consider their apologies are sincere? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice
shame on me, fool me hundreds of times over many years “We the People” are damn fools for
letting our corrupt and selfish leaders treat us that way.
They say we are treated the way we as people allow others to treat us. If we allow people to walk
over us, manipulate us and treat us poorly and do not stand up for ourselves, we have laid out the
way we expect to be treated. Standing in silent acceptance grants permission. The same is true of
“We the People” as a group, as a nation of free people, giving up our freedoms, to corrupt
politicians, in silence.
American politicians sit on their high and mighty thrones of government lording down on tin pot
dictators and third world countries, laughing at their barbaric corruption. Holier than thou, they
ordain themselves pure and untouched by such things. Virgins to the seductions of greed and
In reality our politicians are masters of corruption. Mark Twain stated, “The only truly criminal class
in America is Congress!” Our democratic republic though a greater opportunity for clean and honest
government is still dependent on the integrity of the people voted in to run it.
Having established the nature of the politician is selfish, dishonest, inherently corrupt, it is not
surprising generations of politicians have stealthily incorporated corruption into the structure of our
government. Built in corruption assists politician’s professional, political and profitability gains! And
they can do all those things legally because they have paved the way passing laws that make their
corruption legal. They have immune themselves from the laws we the people are accountable to.
They cannot be sued for liable or insider trading because of laws they passed to protect themselves
from what would be illegal for the public. They protect themselves in a cocoon of corruption
allowing their dishonest and selfish behaviors. So, while the average citizen is a target of the many
31 | P a g e
frivolous laws passed by dishonest politicians, those same politicians are immune from those laws
Politicians have also immune their partners in crime the bureaucrats and big business. Those in the
deep state, unelected politicians unaccountable to the vote of the people! The FBI’s (Comey,
McCabe, Strzok, Page, possibly special council Mueller) and DOJ’s (Rosenstein, Bruce and Nelly Or,
Holder and Lynch) John Brennen CIA, James Clapper DNI Lois Lerner IRS, all examples, a boiling pork
stew of corruption.
Minutia or Turbo BS
Our constant barrage of news, feeding the 24 hour seven days a week news cycle has devolved in
the main stream media mutilating minutia to the drumbeat of marketing. Debate devolved to
regurgitating the same talking points show after show, day after day, week after week, month after
month, year after year, an inundation of crap exhibiting little intelligence; massive stupidity. I think
we received more world news in the half hour evening news programs of the past than we do now
in all the 24 hour news channels.
Even sports news takes a miniscule incident, then rides it into the ground, until another piece of
minutia manure is kicked up, sticking to somebody’s shoe. We have created a vast and lucrative
profession of minutia manipulators, eating up their excrement until many actually see them as
intelligent. This has aided in words speaking louder than actions. So lip flappers have actually
arrested power from real thinkers and doers. We have ceded power to the medicine show
Parasites picking at the dullard brains, created by their ally the money leeching education industry!
Little balls of dung formed, which they like to play with like an innocent kitten, but playfulness and
innocence far from their purpose!
Kicking, stomping, and beating a dead horse, burying it in minutia, focusing on nothing as the
important issues of the world pass us by without notice. Rumormongers, scandal mongers, gossips,
crap throwers, the Hedda Hoppers of our age pretending to be honest journalists!
Myths, half-truths and outright lies the tools of their trade. These the phony facades constructed by

Toxic Masculinity has always existed. Even in today’s society there are some remnants. Call it
machismo, chauvinism, male dominance there are many males out of control in many ways.
Let’s be clear, there are many men trained by their mothers to be very sensitive to women. They are
taught to hold doors opened, help with their coats and many deeper actions of respect. Many men
place women on a pedestal out of that deep seeded respect.
Toxic Femininity is just as existent as that of masculinity. Militant feminists have recently introduced
that just the accusation of a man committing acts against a woman is proof of guilt. No more
innocent until proven guilty. This is a powerful weapon in the hands of angry feminists carrying on a
war on males.
Seeing my mother’s example I saw women as pillars of honesty, a civilizing influence of the barbaric
tendencies of men. I see today many women have adopted the worst characteristics of men in their
quest for power. Honest women of the past in power a good thing. Women, merely clones of men
just continuing the corruption.
Toxic Elitism encompasses Toxic Masculinity and Toxic Femininity. It also includes corruption
dominating politics and the media. Also many leaders in corporations, business and Hollywood!
Those that want power to placate their narcissism, to make them feel superior to others!
Toxic Victimhood is the weapon used by many practicing Toxic Elitism to gain power. Making
promises impossible to fill sucks the people in to supporting these snake oil salesmen, allowing them
to fulfill their goal of superiority and elitism.
Many of these Toxic Elitists are Toxic Socialists. Plying socialism because there is no accountability
for success under socialism. Talentless, lazy and lethargic leaders can succeed and reap a harvest of
luxury for themselves under the socialist banner. The entire population will become victims, thrust
into a citizenry of poverty.
Toxic Government - The incompetence our government is practicing is toxic. It is an incompetence
that is breeding waste, fraud and corruption. It has our nation descending into conditions that have
people wanting change. One of the changes is socialism, toxic socialism. All socialism is toxic!

In my young manhood, I transformed because of wonderful life lessons I shed the need to be liked.
That probably sounds sad and pathetic to most of you, but I saw it as a burden I was happy to
The need to be liked drives so many people. It leads some to allow people to walk over them. It
leads others to do destructive things, in order to be accepted. People giving themselves up,
rejecting themselves to be liked by others!
In eighth grade, standing in a deserted hall in the school with my friend, a member of the popular
clique came along. He walked up to my friend and said, “If you beat up Furnkranz, you can be part
of our group.” Without hesitation “my Friend” turned to me to attempt to fulfill the offer. Half
again my size and weight, very well built, he couldn’t beat me up on his best day and my worst. Still,
the offer must have been compelling for his ego.
He moved toward me menacingly. I arm dragged him, throwing him into the wall and walked away.
He went on to be a prime mover in the popular clique. I went on to be me, with no desire to be a
In college I was asked to become a member of the primary clique because of a talent we shared.
For me this was way out of the normal occurrence in my life. I declined, because I had already
established a group of friends I would not reject.
Pursuing my seagoing career, I got a job on a tug in Cajun country in Louisiana. They disliked us
from the North because licenses were being required of them. It led to me being on the barge while
pumping, only being relieved for meals. While the locals aboard rested, I was on the deck twenty
four to thirty six hours.
Making my way back North, I worked on small tankers out of NY Harbor. Initially I got along very
well with Captain Bastich. Then one day he was talking about the other cook, off rotation at this
time. He stated to the crew at the table, that Joe was stealing the food money. He wrapped it up
saying, “Isn’t that right Gerald.”
I answered, “I don’t know about that. The only time I was shopping with him, I saw him put his own
money in, because he had miscalculated.” Relating my experience with Joe changed the
relationship. I was now on his black list. For other members of the crew to stay in the captain’s good
graces, they no longer spoke to me socially. Only ships business allowed.
You might think the people I worked with at sea were crude, crass and cruel. In such a closed
environment they could easily be manipulated by leadership. As a member of the Horseheads
School Board, I found the behaviors very similar. Holding contrary views often led to castigation.
The cold shoulder, silent treatment the norm, except when I spoke up about something, being met
with demeaning put downs and letters the verbal interaction. Being told my views were wrong
when I knew they weren’t.
