The Dumbest Meme And Movement Of The Month

After about the 5th time this image appeared on my timeline, I had to comment. This is the silliest meme of January 2017, and there have been loads of baddies this month. But first, let me provide some much needed backstory. The new administration is rightly putting an end to taxpayer funded global warming propaganda. President Trump thinks neither the government, or its employees, should be lying to Americans, or presenting themselves as experts on issues that are in no way settled science.

All mentions of global warming and climate change were removed from the White House site. Then the order went down the chain of command to all the public service minions - many of whom would likely be serving Starbucks, if government weren't so big, and very generous with taxpayer money. Since so many people have gotten insanely wealthy on this scam, and others are too far gone to embrace the truth, there are those who think they can "resist" the lawful orders of their boss, and continue agitating on company equipment and time. It started first with some Park Service twits using social media to spread global warming agitprop. This was outright insubordination. So they then decided to go rogue. Even created a group with a logo that looked a little too similar to the Park Service logo, which has since been changed. They call themselves Alt US Nat Park Service. It would be more accurate to call them Ctrl - Us, as all these global warming nut-jobs and collectivists want to do is micromanage the lives of everyone else.

So now that you know the background, its time for the ridiculous meme that got my attention.

Isn't it glorious? Those rogue Park Rangers are regular freedom fighters. I bet they can't wait to see their names engraved on Partisan Rock to immortalize their heroic stand against Liberty and Truth.

Nobody is "coming for the scientists" from this administration . With this past election, Americans said enough with the lies, the falsified data, the ignoring periods when both the temperature and CO2 concentration wildly differed from the present age. That is NOT science. It is propaganda. And taxpayers certainly don't want to pay people to lie to them.

There is a reason the globalists stopped calling it global warming - their catastrophic predictions FAILED, dramatically. Climate change is a meaningless phrase, as the climate ALWAYS changes. Long before the SUV, and long after we are gone, it will continue changing, something any scientist who is not getting paid to produce bogus results would know.

Higher CO2 levels lead to higher crop yields. Yet the global warming believers fail to share that bit of good news. CO2 is NOT a pollutant. It is vital to life on this planet. So why is the government so determined to call it a pollutant and regulate it through higher taxes? That is either diabolical, or ignorance of the HIGHEST order.

Obligatory Music Break - Explaining Photosynthesis To Victims Of Government Education

The Earth's atmosphere is 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen and 1 percent other gases, including about 0.04 percent carbon dioxide. CO2 is ONLY 0.04 of the atmosphere! Yet somehow it is so powerful, that even the slightest, and often natural increase, is suppose to catastrophically change the GLOBAL climate.

The largest producers of CO2 are all NATURAL SOURCES -  and CO2 is absorbed by plants who then convert it to Oxygen - do they even teach photosynthesis in schools these days? Shouldn't somebody, like say a Park Ranger, who is tasked with protecting natural resources, understand these basic truths?

Nowhere in their mission is it indicated that they should shill for global warming, or any other collectivist fantasy. On the contrary, their job is to maintain the parks and educate the public. That's it. If they would focus on that job, they might notice that the climate has been rather stable for over two decades. If they want to play the fool on their own time and on their own computers, go for it. However, when employees represent the United States, they have a responsibility to uphold the truth, and refrain from sharing their apocalyptic fiction.

The last post I saw from the group before typing this post was a complaint that the hiring freeze was hurting their ability to do their job. Welcome to the real world, pal. Why not get off social media and work a few extra hours. That's what taxpayers have been doing nonstop for the last 8 freakin' years. The freeze was necessary because the last administration doubled the nation's debt. His job-killing regulations left nearly 95 million people out of the workforce. His attempt to seize control of health care is another fabulous disaster. So guess what, like any business that finds itself on thin ice, the government must tighten its belt. Get used to it, and be thankful taxpayers are willing to bleed a little more to have the NPS.  It seems ridiculous that its even a Federal responsibility - but we'll save that for another day.

Its going to be tough in the short term. But if we stay the course, when the economy truly recovers and people are back to work in the private sector, we might be able to hire a few more needed government employees, maybe even Park Rangers.

When it comes to global warming, it amazes me that so many people are this gullible. They will believe whatever the government spoon feeds them. Its frightening that people like crazy Al Gore, the man who bought a beachfront mansion while predicting that the ocean would rise by 20 FEET, is still taken seriously. Use the brain God gave you. THINK!!! Stop relying on government bureaucrats determined to profit from your ignorance. And don't get your talking points from people hanging out with Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo all day.

I love it!!

DISCLAIMER - I have met many hard working Rangers at National Parks who were excellent at what they do. I have been fortunate to have visited nearly every major battlefield in the US, and been amazed by their wealth of knowledge and the passion they bring to their job. This article is not about those fine folks.  This is directed towards those people who are insubordinate. And if they use their position in government to establish credibility in order to distribute propaganda, they deserve to be called out publicly.

It Can Only Get Better With President Trump

This was the first inauguration I have watched in decades. Not because of any particular animosity towards the previous Presidents. They generally met my expectations. Bush 1 was an establishment candidate who largely abandoned Reagan’s legacy. Clinton was the
womanizing sexual predator I had met in Little Rock on a college trip in 1987, with the added bonus of an extremist wife with an unrestrained lust for power. Bush 2 was a big government Republican. Obama was a red diaper baby, and a community agitator groomed from birth to “fundamentally transform” this country. 

When people gain power who do not believe in the Rule of Law, or think the Constitution is just some helpful, antiquated suggestions, you can be sure their time in office will not go well for the average American. That has been the case for the last several decades, where the only difference between the administrations was the pace that Liberty declined.

Now, there is finally some hope. America elected a Patriot. He may not be a perfect man, no politician is, but he loves the United States - that is a YUGE improvement over recent Presidents. He is not an establishment insider. His picks for his cabinet already demonstrate an understanding that Big Government and crony capitalism never works. Liberty is always the answer. The Rule of Law must apply to everyone, regardless of title, wealth, or power. NOBODY is too big to jail. Wisdom is preferred to ideological foolishness. And most importantly, Godliness exalts a nation, not division and strife.

The last 8 years demonstrates the importance of electing and appointing competent people. Community agitators, academic pinheads, and extremists, are dangerous folks, especially when they seize power. We should expect MORE from a President. But since the bar was set SO LOW by the previous administration, whatever President Trump does, or doesn’t accomplish, will likely be a YUGE upgrade. I am confident we will NEVER see anything like the following from President Trump, or his administration. That alone is worthy of celebration.

The media and historians will do their best to suggest the Obama administration was a success. It is good to remember the catastrophic failures of the last 8 years. This will make it so much easier to appreciate the stark difference between good leadership, and the alternative.

1. An American president apologizing to other countries.

2. An American president bowing before some 3rd world monarch, tin-pot dictator, or to any world leader.

3. An American president presenting incompatible DVDs to the British Prime Minister, insulting our closest international friend, and long time ally, as a formal gift, while receiving in return a near priceless pen holder crafted from the timbers of the 19th century British warship HMS Gannet (whose sister ship, HMS Resolute, provided the wood for the Oval Office's desk).

4. A Secretary of State giving a tchotchke with the word "reset" mistranslated as "overcharge" to Russia, our largest global rival.

5. An American president who publicly insults the newly elected Prime Minister of Israel, the only Democracy in the Middle East and our greatest ally in the region, by refusing a time honored custom of a personal call to congratulate him/her on their victory. It wasn't the first snub or the last. Former President Obama also used taxpayer dollars in an attempt to undermine Israeli elections.

6. A President who would select a UN Ambassador who would dare float a trial balloon that America should invade Israel because of some deluded definition of genocide.

7. An administration with available assets and many options, who would deny multiple requests for help from Americans, including the Ambassador, who were being assaulted by islamic terrorists. And then lie about it ... often.

8. An American president who is a follower, rather than a WORLD LEADER.

11. A President who would increase the debt by $9.3 Trillion in just 8 years, leaving the country with $19.9 Trillion in debt, or $166,000 per taxpayer.

12. An administration that suggests that the solution to global terrorism is more jobs for terrorists.

13. An administration that promotes a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements in their sovereign territory, and then fails to block this travesty.

15. An administration that hates America, and seeks to divide it by race, sex, party, sexual preference, and sows strife at every turn. President Obama was uniquely qualified to stamp out the embers of tribalism and racial discord. Had he made this a priority, even with so many other disasters and blunders under his belt, his legacy would have been secured. Instead, he set out almost immediately to create as much hostility as possible, fanning the flames of unrest at every turn. His promotion of violence led to the execution of several police officers in the name of social justice. His rhetoric caused a sharp rise in police deaths, and set back race relations by 50 years in America.

16. A President who insults millions of hardworking entrepreneurs and small business owners by saying, “You didn’t build that!
Divisive remarks like that are based on the false premise that without government, individuals are powerless, mere children that need cradle-to-death micromanagement by bureaucrats in order to survive. No other statement more clearly reveals the difference between collectivists, and people who believe in freedom.

Government creates nothing but liabilities. True economic growth comes from individuals who are willing to invest, work hard, and see their dream come true. More often than not, its the government which is the biggest roadblock in the way of entrepreneurial success. For community agitators, social justice warriors, bureaucrats, and academic pinheads, who have never accomplished anything meaningful in their lives, this is a painful truth. Prosperity only manifests where Liberty flourishes. Big government is NOT Liberty, it is tyranny. 

17. An administration that specifically targets a whole industry for destruction, in one case declaring war on coal, leading to the loss of 50,000 jobs, and many bankruptcies.

18. An administration that creates an $80 Billion dollar slush fund to give taxpayer dollars to their crony capitalist friends’ pet green projects. The vast majority of these “investments” are catastrophic failures, creating even more debt for future taxpayers, and proving that community agitators and academic pinheads have no place in government.

19. An administration that declares CO2, a gas that is vital to life on this planet, is a pollutant and must be regulated.


20. No other remark revealed what was in Obama’s heart better than his 2008 attack on people in
small towns and the Midwest, calling them “bitter” and suggesting that “clinging to guns or religion” was somehow a bad thing. As President, his administration attacked people of faith at every turn, and constantly sought to undermine the 2nd Amendment. At the same time, his administration armed drug cartels, jihadis, and supported extremists all over the world. So apparently, it wasn’t necessarily guns or religion that were the problem. As long as murderers and terrorists were armed, that was OK. However, according to this administration, law abiding Americans must be disarmed. Christians, Yazidis, or Jews could be attacked and even killed, as long as islam was defended and promoted globally.

It is time for America to take its rightful place as LEADER of the FREE World. This cannot be done when Liberty is constantly under assault from within. America cannot lead when the chains of government bondage prevent growth, and diminish the prosperity that always comes with the Blessing of Liberty. The United States CANNOT prosper when RIGHTEOUSNESS is no longer exalted!

Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people. -- Proverbs 14:34 NLT

When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan. -- Proverbs 29:2 NLT

God Blesses the nation who seeks His Face.

“...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” -- 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

And as I have done with every President, both the good and the evil, I will follow what the Word demands of all Believers.

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. -- 1 Timothy 2:1-4 NIV 

Let's Make America Great Again!!
