Blog 68 How to think when they are lying

There are political lies, little white lies, balled faced lies, and lies of convenience. I guess there are more types of lies than carter has pills.

Having been a Police officer for 30 years I guess I have heard them all or at least nearly all. Today I was doing my Twitter thing and came across a tweet about stopping Hillary from lying. I tweeted back “why do you want to stop her she does it so well?” That got me thinking about all the lies the police hear daily.

Did you know that about a third of all women that a police officer stops for speeding cry and tell the officer some sob story? Some officers writ every one of them, even if they weren’t going to when the stop was made, just to warn them for some minor infraction. They look at the crying as a lie. Men get the citation if the excuse and the action don’t match,; like there was no one coming as they rolled through a stop sign or ran a red light. The officer may have seen the approach of a car the driver did not want to acknowledge. Now he figures that the driver was not paying attention or that he is lying. Either determination would generate a citation.

In the case of the crying ladies some officers get offended by this. I never did I would make an attempt to determine if the cause of the tears was genuine. I would ask myself if the stop was to warn the individual, male or female, because profiling is BS, most of the time a Police officer can’t tell if the driver is white or black male or female until the stop is made. At this point I would judge that the determination of whether a citation is issued or an arrest is made is determined by the event, and the attitude of the offender. Be nice and there is a 50/50 shot they let you off. Be respectful and it 25/75 they let you off. Be respectful and repent and the odds go higher. As a rule, the longer the free lecture the less chance you have to pay the judge. lawyers are almost never free to talk to.

The ladies that cried I handled them by saying nicely, if the problem they were having has reduced them to the state of tears? I was going to recommend that they discontinue driving and I would call someone of their choosing to come and get them and the vehicle or they could have a tow truck and cab take them home. If they refused the assistance I would say if I see you drive away from here in this state I will arrest you for reckless driving take you to jail and impound the vehicle. This usually stopped the waterworks. To be fair some of the guys try this too I had one notorious’ young man actually get down on his knees in traffic and beg me not to arrest him for the fourth time for driving with his license suspended. He cried all the way to jail he only stopped when I said I had no choice the judge had given us a court order to arrest him every time we saw him behind the wheel. It was a white lie but it worked. Don’t be offended at the fact that some fools believe Hillary’s little white lies. everybody does it so “what difference does it make?” Maybe she should rethink that one?

Blog 67 Fanning the flames of civil war

Black lives matter and its enablers are fanning the flames of civil war, for the root of all evil; Money. There is money in it for race baiting pimps like All Sharpton. There is money in it for haters and looters. There is money in it for media bomb throwers with a fixation on disarming law abiding citizens. There is money in it for politicians pandering to voters that don’t know any more about what these politician are up to than a pig knows about Sunday.

I spent 30 years of my life in policing. I went through the 60s and 70s with the weather underground and the S.D.S,  the George Jackson brigade and other anarchist pointing their fingers at the police because, Professor politicians whipped them up in our polluted colleges. Now one of these professor thugs occupies the White House. His minions are in the streets and he is in Alaska, working on his “plausible deniability”

When this crap happens and the president skulks out of town instead of issuing a call to calm and sensibility, He is part of the problem

You are either part of the solution or your part of the problem. In the case of the president of the United States He is the problem.

Mr. President If you’re not going to stand up for the police and law and order you are the problem. Get the hell out and do your job or Get the hell out of the Whitehouse and turn the Job over to someone that Will!

Blog 66 Is Jeb Bush someone I could vote for to be the next leader of our Nation?

As you read this evaluation of this candidate please understand that I am an independent voter and an independent evaluator

What are the reasons that would lead me to vote for this candidate? Soft spoke and unflappable he is well known by virtue of the fact his father and brother are farmer presidents of the United States. As a Republican, his politics are a bit left of center. As a former Governor of the great state of Florida, he has an excellent record in that state.  I could vote for the guy, but why should I?

Is His stance on Immigration a reason NO! He just chastised Mr. Trump for saying our laws mean something.

We can’t offend the Hispanic vote is his reasoning.

Well if the law abiding Hispanics are offended by a whole bunch of their people being singled out because they are in fact breaking the laws of this nation, I have something to say about that. If you are offended suck it up and get your head right. You are not first a Hispanic you are first a citizen of the United States of America. You are pledged to follow the law. If you don’t like the law lets change it. This is a big problem and something has to be done. We can’t keep going along to get along. We need someone who will confront the problem and fix it.  Either all of us stand together or we will all fall separately.

Now I ask this question; are we American citizens of the United States? Or are we Hispanics, Blacks, Whites, Asian, and Native American?  As citizens of the United States of America, we can’t pick and choose what laws we well obey and what laws we will not, based on Politics.

Well now; are we proud citizens of this country or are we going to be the socialist sheep the left wants us to be?

Blog 65 Is Dr. Ben Carson someone that I could vote for to lead this nation

As you read this evaluation of this candidate please understand that I am an independent voter and an independent evaluator

What are the reasons that would lead me to vote for this candidate? To start off with he is very smart not just book smart. I would describe this good man as humbly smart, a listener with a good heart. Is all this a reason to hire him as the next great leader of this nation? Wow! this is a tough one for me

Normally I like a leader with some military experience or an equivalent. [ let me check on that]

Here is a exert from politico a left leaning blog

“ Dr. Ben Carson has no business experience, no military experience, and no political experience. So, why do Republicans want him to run for President” (by Maruza Ferous) I found this article in political. It is well reasoned. I read it and I have to agree on the face of it . The good doctor may not have the right stuff to be the president  on paper, but standing up to the big government wonks on both sides of the political spectrum make him an interesting choice

My evaluation of Dr. Ben Carson is that he may not be ready for the white house but he is ready for the race and time will tell.  I Like him and want him in the race he is one of the spices that will make this stew great. I’m licking my chops to see and hear more from him.

Blog 62 Is Hillary the anointed one theknockerblog.com

As you read this evaluation of Hillary please understand that I am an independent voter and an independent evaluator.

What are the reasons that would lead me to vote for this candidate? Well she is the best known of all the candidates. She may be the best known person in the world. She will probably get the vote of every do nothing voter in the electret. That’s not good enough for this voter.

She’s a Woman. We have never had a woman and it’s about time that changed, but that’s no reason to hire a commander in chief. If that’s all it takes to lead how about one of these two.  Two of the nation’s finest women just made it through West Point and Ranger Training. That’s some pretty righteous stuff. I have known a lot of west pointers in my time Most of them were upright and honorable if Hillary were one of them I would consider the vote.

Upright and honorable that’s a big thing with me so here goes. Do I consider Hillary upright and honorable? She’s a lawyer that’s supposed to be an upright and honorable profession? Well some are and some are politicians. I can’t let that be the bases for any decision I make to hire her for the top cop possession. This coupled with her poor job performance since she left the senate is pushing me into the; my vote is unlikely to do that category.

My real problem with this candidate is that she is a lawyer. I know something about lawyers and most of the ones I know would not be comingling legal and personal matters such as funds or client records such as work related documents with personal documents. It just isn’t done old girl?

Now the real clincher, it is clear to me that the former first lady has mishandled Top Secret      Documents. She is there by rendered not qualified to hold the job that requires that its holder be cleared to handle the nation’s top secrets.

A really smart person, as many have purported Hillary to be, would know this stuff, and never let herself get near any of it, let alone up to her neck in it.

The overreaching question is, why Hillary? Why did you expose yourself to this? At one time you must have been smart enough to know this was a bad idea. What happened? Could it be senility? Or has your pot smoking hippy life style of the 60s started catching up to you? That’s it too much residual T.H.C., I knew I would stumble over the answer if I kept at it.   This is what we all must do, keep asking questions. The answers will come either from the candidates themselves or from our own imaginations.  How shall we judge you? It’s your choice.

Blog 64 Birthright citizenship

Blog 64   Birthright citizenship

I took the following exert from Breitbart news

The author of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, Senator Jacob Howard of Michigan, a close friend of President Lincoln, stated, “[The 14th amendment] will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States….” Moreover, the 1896 US Supreme Court decision often cited as affirming citizenship for children born to immigrants, US v. Wong Kim Ark, concerned only a LEGAL immigrant.

Doing a little homework reveals that no Supreme Court case has ever directly confronted the question of birthright citizenship for children born to illegal aliens. That is a fact no matter how many times O’Reilly and the Fox team try to obfuscate the matter

From the free republic The History of the Sixteenth Amendment | Dr. W. Cleon Skousen

When the first income tax was sent out to the people, the Congress chortled confidently that “all good citizen will willingly and cheerfully support and sustain this, the fairest and cheapest of all taxes.” That was the cute little monkey part. After all, the first tax ranged from merely 1% on the first $20,000 of taxable income and was only 7% on incomes above $500,000. Who could complain?(Ed. note: In 1994 “d At first, scarcely anyone did. Little did they know that before the tinkering was done in Washington, this system would be described by many Americans as the most unfair and expensive tax in the history of the nation. Within a few years, it had become the principal source of income for the federal government. dollars” that $20K is now over $250K and the $500K is today over $6 million!)

I have put these exerts before you to make this point:  What a politician tells you and what gets made into law are vastly different creations. At first the constitution was the vehicle by which the government was restrained.  Now it is the vehicle by which the government and its bureaucracy enslave and restrain the masses, by pitting us one against the other.

They Chortled (Laughed) and the people were turned into Haters of one another
