Again We Ask – Who Is Running This Runaway Train Called “The Village”?

 

 



What happens when you, we, us promote false virtue in our words and actions?

Things like Critical Theory “happen”.

How about this headline:

Oakland’s Progressive Mayor will exclude WHITE families living in POVERTY from $500 checks.

From the beginning of time fools have perched upon some of the highest thrones man has had to offer.

Proving that being elected does not make you any smarter. These types even make it into high places within the likes of education, governance, law enforcement and the media. The “News” included.

They have been able to do so because of the crazy ideas that have filled the collective conscience of our world from time to time. Guess what, this is one of those times.

Good thing for humans that up until present, we have proven that survival of the fittest is generally true.

Then there are those of course that jump into the boat with the fools and it goes over the edge with them in it, along with the truthful thinking.

Even if you don’t “get in the boat”, the damage these soon to be replaced self-proclaimed salvations of mankind cause are felt by you and I. We are generally the ones on shore that have to deal with their childish and foolish decisions that leave outcome for the rest of us to deal with.

Seriously, what happens when we change our “collective soul” away from the truth?

When we let the ideas of critical theory, social justice, sustainable development, equity and the like be our compass, well, then we will walk in the direction those ideas point too.

In that process it allows for under qualified people to take the reins simply because of their “Progressive Social Score” that is determined by intersectionality.

When we allow for the hollow virtue signaling like we have seen to drive our perspective as a people, it distorts our view of the Truth. When we allow this type of thinking we can easily find ourselves in a position that the “under qualified” with no skill, ability or experience can take charge.

They hold the rudder and run the engine that guide our day to day. The longer they are there the sooner we begin to get lost as a people and breakdown as a community.

We begin making excuses for them and their outcomes. We look to blame others for their short comings while we pay for their actions. Nature being what she is, we are beginning to run out of a required supply of intelligence and the fuel to move us. Our social compass is broken as a “people” and we all suffer because of it.

All of the while there are those that are promising you that it is ok that they know very little, because they have an expert to listen to and tell them what to do. As an example, the Mayor of Indiantown, Janet Hernandez has made this assumption more than once. She actually believes it.

When a person is “allowed” to rise to the top of the chain because of Social Justices stigmas, diversity of race, equity instead of equality, then you are promoting those to positions of power without consideration of foundational skill to achieve the post; over those that have the skill but the wrong Social Justice pedigree.

Well, if everyone else believes the ideas then they must be acceptable, right? Wrong.

Social Justice and Sustainable efforts have enabled minority to rise in the leadership hierarchy without any need for merit.

The Boeing 737 Max airplane suffered two fatal accidents. To what extent were the accidents attributable to design work that had been done in low-cost, low work-ethic jurisdictions? Did those in leadership positions discuss the possibility of such risks, or was this deemed too politically incorrect?

To what extent were forest fires in California or the recent power outages in Texas a result of progressive policy, where people have been elevated to positions of authority despite a lack of competence? We will never know the specifics, for people in the West no longer say anything that might be seen as bigoted. Those who dare say something get booted out. Welcome to the cancel culture.

Errors accumulate with no one to challenge them.

The Social Governance concepts pursued in Indiantown are essentially copying the globalist & internationalists model of social change, which is anti-meritocratic and will destroy institutions, the heritage and future of Indiantown

Is it still acceptable to allow this kind of thinking even if the actions required to achieve the outcome are false?

Unfortunately, for most, yes. When the most vocal proclaim mantra, and virtue signal at the same time we seem to bite. Few are willing to voice disagreement because they do not like conflict.

In the mean time you watch what you thought were reasonably sane people begin to justify and hold up nonsense for the virtuous posture.

Think of it this way.

When you elect a person to a position of authority because of their gender or their race over their qualifications, then you are allowing a system without a foundation of merit to grow.

When you elect people that do not have any financial skin in the game you diminish your outcomes as a citizen. Worse yet, when you elect people that cannot even achieve an income that allows for their housing without aide from the tax payer, then you have really done some virtue signaling.

When you elect a person because they are “your people” then you again diminish the merit of the level of skill and thus the outcome that ensues.

This should be a good indication of what we mean.

When you hear someone elected tell you that they are going to vote to raise the amount of money it costs to build a house by 25% overall because it is the responsible thing for government to do, then you know you have elected a Social Justice scorecard instead of an American with skills.

You can verify that by noting they feel it is a waste of Tax Payer Money to hold a 4th of July Celebration for the “PEOPLE” of the Village. All the while flushing your dollars down the drain with unnecessary bureaucratic feel-good BS and consultants to “tell them what to think”.

Then in the next breath they promote a non-existent social justice warriors’ holiday over an American Holiday. Like Juneteenth over the 4th – indigenous people’s day instead of Columbus Day. You get the idea. America is somehow not good enough for them.

When you hear a sitting Mayor proclaim that a candidate’s experience for an advisory Board is not required, because they are a minority and they can learn from the “experts”, that should tip you off.

Then in the next breath, they vote for a person to be added to a community board for the sake of Equity, not Equality. You should know then they are dangerous.

If equality was truly the virtue then the other person under consideration for the advisory board seat, that has credential, a business and experience in the arena of the Boards focus would have been voted on to the Board.

Instead of voting for a person that has no depth of field and their sole qualification is that they are brown, well you tell me, is that American? NO.

When you force decisions to be made on race you are racist. Simply because when you are racist it is required to make consideration of one over another based-on skin color.

When you choose a person by gender for a role instead of qualification you weaken the process and the outcomes as well. You are a sexist and a bigot if you think in this manner, then act on it.

The snowflakes scream of Social Justice, Progressive Liberty and Equity are just getting started by these self-promoting progressive officials that openly admit they are clueless and need experts to be their source of ideas and knowledge.

The brazenness of their lies would take your breath away if we weren’t becoming so inured to them through their omnipresence.

For the moment, at least, progressives are unchained, unrepentant and uninterested in conversation.

They are also in charge.

This is the simple truth.

Most people do not like change or conflict.

But we do not like destitution and having our freedoms trampled even more.

If we continue along this sick twisted path of Social Justice and Diversity for the sake of Diversity then we will fail as a people as sure as there is a real truth.

Wisdom is not given to a man it is earned, and without doing he will not learn.

When he has not done then he is lacking experience, without experience he has earned nothing.

Which in the end leaves him lacking the wisdom of those that have done and do know from their experience.

This is exactly the position some elected politicos find themselves in. The same ones that in their words openly proclaim their lack of knowledge. The same people that you elected to represent you and be your voice.

The same people that openly rely on experts for their ideas because they do not have the experience, knowledge or wisdom to do it themselves.

So, if several on an elected Council have this need for the experts to tell them everything, it is really the experts that are driving this train then. Not you.

In the least, you would think that the pool of knowledge the experts drink from should be considered by the Council member. Instead, they place the “expert” on water and see them walking.

If the knowledge that is offered from “experts” comes from a place of deep toxicity, then one has to discern this fact for themselves. When however, your elected do not question but “take to the bit” like our own Tony Z has expressed, then you have a mindless zombie pack following the will and direction of the “expert”.

The people of the Village should demand that their Council of elected begin looking for an “expert” with American ideas and principles. Unlike the International and Globalist approach being taken by Howard Brown. Seems like a good place to start. Especially if we are going to rely on the “Expert” to tell us what to do. Unless of course you are a Council member and think that the Socialist Progressive economic and social justice path is the way to go.

Again, we ask, who is running this Village?

This is a real problem not only for Indiantown but the entire County.

As extreme Globalist Progressive politicians and experts are given control over millions of tax dollars, they will use it to bolster their camp. In your backyard. In under three years of existence a sleepy six thousand in population little berg has spent over $20 million in tax payer money. They have also committed themselves into deep long-term debt and grant obligations that will cost tens of millions more in the near future.

Scary really, because they could just flip a coin to make a decision and you would be in the same place either way. Screwed.

Our Money & The Lack Of It

“Money often costs too much.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson



As you know Some of the theme here at TAM is “gritty” sometimes.

We can ride the edge of the side that no one wants to see with some topics.

We dare admit from time-to-time what others know but hide from as well.

One thing we have always done though is to be able to build our position on a common foundation of standard and principle rooted in Natural Law. We have placed our ideas in truth.

Since we have been placing our ideas into the public square for discussion and consideration there has been a diverse response. Sometimes to the delight of many and then to the consternation of some at other times. We just refuse to go over the edge with the crowd.

That being what it is, we would like to enter into a place that hopefully we can again find common ground outside of race or political party.

Can you remember the last time you ever saw the Government workforce sector shrink or get paid less, with your “money”?

That is where we will begin. This discussion centers around money.

The root of all evil as the cliché extols.

Money has become a problem. To broaden that statement let’s look at a few facts from recent months.

Here is a good one for you, let’s call it fact number one: “We the People are Broke”.

We are “broke” in more ways than one, but we want to focus on the monetary aspect of this idea for discussions sake. Let’s look at last February’s retail consumer spending numbers that surprised everyone when they dropped from the month before. Of course, America received their stimulus check in January so retail sales boomed then.

The February number is not a good sign. It shows that without a boost in our personal bank account we do not have the money to buy all the crap China needs us too.

When we couple that with the fact that 27% of ALL American Income is being derived at the present from the Federal Government. It kind of takes a new light doesn’t it. The money is a God send for many and curse for us all. As good as it might seem at first glance, creating money “out of thin air” doesn’t bring prosperity.

We have seen this type of massive money printing in the past and it did not end well then either. It ended with an explosion overnight of hyper inflation sending a loaf of bread to what would be in American money 100’s of thousands of dollars.

Currently there is a hidden 9% core inflation build up taking place in the raw materials sector. Raw materials are used to produce the crap you and I buy. Core food cost inflation is setting in as well.

Of course, I am not telling anybody anything they do not already know. You are feeling the pinch when you shop. It is not your imagination. The volume of a bag of chips or a bottle of your favorite soda continues to get smaller and the price you are paying for it keeps going up. Your money is stretching thinner and thinner.

Gas prices are up to almost $3 a gallon. Eggs are getting more expensive. So is milk, bread, bacon, beer and every other thing you need or dare I say want. Problem is, if your lucky enough to have a way to earn an income from work, your pay is not keeping up with the inflation and the rising prices for the basics. Unemployment is still running in historic high ranges and the pressure of millions of newly arrived “migrants” will add additional pressure to the work force.

Mandatory minimum wage increase will invariably force businesses to either over inflate the cost of their product, that you and I pay for. Or they will simply lay off work force and modernize to permanently eliminate the jobs. Look at SAMS, Walmart, Amazon, Ford and on and on and on.

Less than 40% of Americans have $500 put back in savings for a rainy day. Significantly far fewer have $1000.00 in the bank.

Housing costs are going through the roof with transitory pressures from people evacuating the socialist States to our North and West.

One thousand new Floridians, a day. Now we will be coveting for the same slice of the pie as others flock here to the great State of Florida.

Lumber prices are at all time highs and the cost to build a house to meet inventory demand is going to price the average Floridian out of the market. We have been warning about this trend with Booker Park, Banner Lakes, Rio and Golden Gate. See, people with money will buy the homes there. Then the people that are living there will need to find a place to live. Won’t be in the same place they just packed up from either. The inflationary pressure actually will have an impact on the potential for gentrifying portions of this County.

The place in the world that was America when I was a boy growing up in Illinois was not dissimilar to what we are entering into now. The 1970’s were a time of great economic upheaval and inflation. We were a family of six then. My Father working two jobs to make sure there was food, milk and a new something for Mom every once in a while. We had an advantage then. We were a traditional American Family. We had a Father that worked. A mother that baby sat to make money and stay with the kids to make sure we did not end up in more trouble than we did. We had each other.

When you look at the single parent family rates among our neighbors younger in year it is scary. If it is near impossible for a two-parent home, the stress for a single parent is incredible.

Day Care costs and Medical cost continue to increase as well. Even with the big government promises of less expensive and open to all. Government is making it worse. We need to look to local Churches and Civic Groups to once again begin organizing a true citizen safety net. Because the Government is not a net and is not safe.

Look, let’s face it. We cannot expect the United States to continue printing money so we can have our Netflix and rims. It will run out of value in the near term.

You see, it used to be that the people that paid taxes were the ones that had their money go out to those who were in need. Neighbor helping neighbor, sort of. Then those dollars dried up and they asked for more and more and more until well, there is no more. We have begun just printing it into existence.

All sorts of extravagant promises could be made back when there were 10 workers paying taxes to support each retiree/state dependent. Now that we’re down to less than 2 full-time workers for each retiree/state dependent, the promises are impossible to keep, with the one exception of printing the trillions of dollars that were anticipated to be paid in taxes–that is, creating near-infinite sums of funny-money out of thin air and hoping the rest of the world will continue to accept it. History doesn’t have any examples of that working, but hey, we’re special and this time it’s different.

A massive devaluation is just around the corner. There are more people with a need for a money bump from Uncle Sam than there are working people that can be taxed to give to the big pot.

So where does the money come from? They print it making the pie that much larger and your slice continues to shrink as the pie gets larger and larger.

The separation of the have and the have not’s is about to do away with those in the middle. If ever there was a time for people to see the need for each other, this is it.

If anyone thinks for a minute that the Grant Machine and river of free money is not going to dry up and blow away, you my good friend will be one of the first to suffer the hardest. If it is your local or County Government that is still playing spend other people’s money then you better tell them to stop it. The end to this current American Chapter we are all living in draws closer to her end. A dramatically new one will soon begin. The starting place for it is not Honey and Sunshine either.

Prepare now for your tomorrow. It will be here whether you are ready for it or not.

Just a thought, but removing the blindfold might be a good idea here. The edge is crumbling and the bottom is a long way down. More to follow … Standby


 

 

 

 

Too Negative

Haters are Gonna Hate


The American experience is about one team not several. It is about opportunity to succeed or fail. It is not about bringing your tribe across the finish line first. America is not a competition among her people.

We know that many of you do not want to hear a lot of what we have to say. Know though that what we say is foundational in truth and is a light exposing those things that infringe on your Liberty and greatly reduce what little freedom you have left. Whether you choose to listen to the messengers is your choice. But don’t chide the messenger just because you are to indifferent to learn and care.



Let’s talk – Join the conversation and let’s begin building common ground so we can then discuss those things we differ on. Until we do, there will be a big divide between us. I think you will be surprised to see how much we really do have in common. Care to care?  Join us and let’s begin to nurture the American spirit as neighbors and friends.

COVID & The Power Brokers

(The following excerpt was reprinted with the Authors permission. )


3 biggest lies about COVID-19 have all been exposed: But here’s why globalist power brokers can’t let it die


Since February, the U.S. media has been pounding Americans with non-stop reporting about COVID-19 coronavirus.

Eight months later, the data shows everything the media said about the virus was false. Yet, those posing as “journalists” continue to repeat the lies from February and March as if they are facts rooted in their quest to “follow the science.”

Every one of the BIG THREE lies seems designed to promote panic and an irrational response to the actual threat.

Anyone who even suggests that maybe the governments of the world have been overreacting to a virus that kills at about the same rate as the flu has been immediately shot down as stupid and not worth listening to.

Slowly but surely, however, everything we “conspiracy theorists” said back in March about COVID has since been borne out as not a conspiracy theory at all. It was 100 percent true.

So let’s look at the three biggest lies that are still being used to spread fear of COVID-19, keeping in mind that the media used these same lies to castigate President Trump when he was released from the hospital Oct. 5 and implored Americans in a tweet “Don’t let COVID-19 dominate your life.”

This virus is “not like the flu,” we are scolded. It’s much scarier than the flu because:

1. COVID carries a very high, 3.4 percent, death rate [compared to a flu death rate of 0.10 percent].

This has now been debunked by none other than the United Nations World Health Organization, which the leftist globalists believe is the gold standard for information about COVID. The WHO came out with updated mortality rates this week showing that only 0.13 percent of those infected will die. That’s 26 times lower than WHO’s previously purported death rate of 3.4 percent. We already know that in the U.S. the average age of those who succumb to the virus is 78 and they have an average of 2.6 comorbidities. This 0.13 percent death rate is almost exactly the death rate for the common flu.

2. COVID is spread by asymptomatic ‘super spreaders

This scares people to death every time they hear it, because it suggests that every human being you come in contact with can potentially infect you. This is absolute hogwash. Asymptomatic carriers have a very low viral load in their system, making it virtually impossible to pass the virus on to another person. Even in the rare cases that they might be able to pass it on, it is highly unlikely if they don’t have symptoms, meaning they are not coughing, sneezing or wheezing.

3. COVID is untreatable.

Now that truly is scary! This lie provided the pretext for Bill Gates and Big Pharma to rush to market an unsafe and unproven vaccine, which could end up being mandated by various state governments and corporations. But this “no treatment” lie has been exposed over and over by the facts, most recently seen in the way President Trump was so effectively treated with a cocktail of supplements and drugs. Trump was treated with Rendesivir in combination with zinc, Vitamin D and melatonin. Another option available in some states is hydroxychloroquine.

These three lies were cleverly crafted to refute anyone who brings facts to the table to argue that the government has no business closing down churches, businesses or generally violating the civil liberties of any American.

The authorities say this coronavirus has killed 204,000 Americans but those numbers don’t reflect the fact that hospitals were directed by the CDC to be liberal in filling out death certificates. Some doctors were so liberal that they actually notched deaths from accidents, heart attacks and strokes as COVID related and therefore COVID caused. CDC estimates that only 6 percent of these 204,000 deaths have been caused by COVID alone.

While these are the three biggest lies, they are not the only lies the media has told and continues to tell. What about the risk to young people? A look at the data shows incontrovertible evidence that college-age students have virtually no risk of dying from COVID. The media knows this. That’s why they focus their hysteria on the number of “cases” on campuses, not the number of deaths.

According to a survey by the New York Times, published Sept. 25, at least 130,000 people on more than 1,600 campuses contracted COVID and 70 died, but “most” of those 70 deaths, the Times admits, were not students but rather college employees, who were likely much older. But even if we factor in those older employees, the rate of death on college campuses according to the Times’ own study is a paltry 0.054 percent. Stunning!

One would think that once these scurrilous lies were exposed, the media would be shouting from the housetops that the CDC, WHO, Drs. Fauci and Birks, Gates and the rest of the “experts” who they relied on for their information, and whose misinformation formed the basis for politicians to implement the economy-killing lockdowns, were completely wrong! Isn’t that what good, honest journalists do when they find out they’ve been played? Yes, they go back and correct the record.

But instead we see no corrections of their previous false reporting. No, they double down on the lies.

This is not news. This is the hallmark of a propaganda operation. Another name for it is information warfare.

If they corrected their false reports and began to prominently report the truth about COVID, this would put pressure on political leaders to end the destructive restrictions on human activity. Those leaders could then turn their focus to protecting the vulnerable, which are people over 65 with multiple serious pre-existing health issues.

But that would require an honest press – something that no longer exists in America. They will continue to repeat the same old lies, that COVID is a killer disease unlike any other faced by mankind; we must “not let our foot off the pedal” of containing it, people of all ages and conditions must stay masked up at all times, indoors or out, and we must stay separated and isolated from our loved ones.

We are not Going Away – We are Americans

What is our role as Legal Citizens in the United States of America?


  The United States of America is a Republic of States. With each State independent in their own governance with the US Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land.

Unlike a dictatorship, a democratic government exists to serve the people, but citizens in democracies must also agree to abide by the rules and obligations by which they are governed.

Democracies grant many freedoms to their citizens including the freedom to dissent and criticize the government.

Citizenship in a democracy requires participation.

American citizens recognize that they not only have rights, they have responsibilities. They recognize that democracy requires an investment of time and hard work — a government of the people demands constant vigilance and support by the people. There are more of us than there are elected.

Legal American Citizenship is the common thread that connects all Americans.

We are a nation bound not by race or religion, but by the shared values of freedom, liberty, and equality.

In our Republic, civic participation means that citizens are required to serve on juries, or register with the Selective Services for potential national military service. Other obligations apply to all democracies and are the sole responsibility of the citizen — chief among these is respect for law. Paying one’s fair share of taxes, accepting the authority of the elected government, and respecting the rights of those with differing points of view are also examples of citizen responsibility.

Democratic citizens know that they must bear the burden of responsibility for their society if they are to benefit from its protection of their rights.

There is a saying in free societies: you get the government you deserve. For democracy to succeed, citizens must be active, not passive, because they know that the success or failure of the government is their responsibility, and no one else’s. In turn, government officials understand that all citizens should be treated equally and that bribery has no place in a democratic government.

In a democratic system, people unhappy with their leaders are free to organize and peacefully make the case for change — or try to vote those leaders out of office at established times for elections. Or by organizing Recall Elections for the overtly corrupt.

Democracies need more than an occasional vote from their citizens to remain healthy. They need the steady attention, time, and commitment of large numbers of their citizens who, in turn, look to the government to protect their rights and freedoms. They do not look to the Government to give them things, (largesse).

As a citizen it is our responsibility to be active in our government. It is our responsibility to make sure that the elected are honoring their oath of office. It is our responsibility to make sure that the elected are acting in our interest as the People.

These are not quaint colonial precepts. They are fact. So, when you decide to vote on popularity or skin color you are being irresponsible as a citizen. You are setting aside the precepts that have made this Republic the greatest experiment in Freedom that mankind has ever taken forward.

Our day to day walks in life are hard enough without malevolent and immature leaders that are self-serving and have no idea of the precepts of Constitutional Governance. The action of the few, and the lack of interest by the many has brought us to the place we are at today.

That is changing. As more citizens wake to find themselves in the clutches of immature, tyrannical race baiters and progressive politicos, we will be here to educate and organize the angry and hardworking Americans.

We are not going away.

We will not let this go. It is our duty and right as Americans to scorn those who violate the precept of Constitutional Governance. We will expose those that are dealing in the dark. We are the Light of Liberty. We are The American Citizen. Join us in an effort to Reclaim Freedom from the Tyrants.

God Bless America –
