We Need More Special Counsels

May 25, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

The original accusation, the underlying premise for the entire hissy fit by the chronic sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome’s about Russian collusion was that the Russians hacked the DNC and gave the emails to Wikileaks.

Recently Internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich, an employee of the DNC to get internal emails to Wikileaks.

Now we have proof that this underlying premise was a lie all along. We now know that the person who really did give the DNC emails to Wikileaks didn’t have to hack in, because he was an insider to begin with: Seth Rich.

They Serve at the Pleasure of the President

May 18, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

How does impeachment of a president work?  The House of Representatives acting as a super grand jury votes an indictment or impeachment.  The Senate acting as a jury decides whether or not the charges brought warrant conviction.  If the president is convicted by the Senate he is removed from office.  If two thirds of the Senate fails to vote to convict the charges are dropped.  In that case the president was still impeached but not convicted. 

In 1868, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson.  This was the first time any president was impeached.  Contrary to popular belief President Nixon was never impeached.  He resigned while the Watergate debacle was still under investigation.  President Clinton was impeached but like Johnson he was not convicted by the Senate so he remained in office until the end of his term.

Torpedoes Sink Ships—Ships of State that is

May 11, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Once wars made presidents popular. Think of Washington and the Revolution, Lincoln and the Civil War, McKinley and the Spanish American War, FDR and WW II. Maybe that was because we used to win wars.

Korea ran Truman out of office. Vietnam made LBJ decide not to run. Before the Silent Coup, Nixon (who ended the war) was tarred with the Vietnam brush. With America winning once again, George the First got a bump from the 100 day Gulf One before we all read his lips. Then rounding out the results of quagmire wars George the Second after soaring in the aftermath of 9-11 ran aground on the sand bars of Iraq.

Republican Strategy: Retreat From Victory

May 4, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Having won the White House, the House and the Senate,  the victorious Republicans have handed the Democrats the budget process.  In doing so they have surrendered everything they were supposedly fighting for: no wall, no end to Obamacare, no end to sanctuary cities, and no end to funding for Planned Parenthood.  The Democrat leaders are celebrating their victory after losing election after election.  Those of us who voted Republican, who voted to get our country back, are mourning a loss after winning election after election.  This does not bode well for the Republican Party, the democratic process, or the social contract in America.

A few weeks ago,  I asked the question: are Democrats smarter than Republicans.  Just asking the question enraged many of the “Read the headline and ignore the article” crowd.  If they had read the article they would have learned that my answer to that question was no, they aren’t smarter just dedicated to a larger purpose than feathering their own nests or maintaining power.

Are Democrats Smarter Than Republicans?

Apr 20, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

I have asked myself this question many times. Have recent events changed my mind?

The headline blares, “Nunes steps aside from Russia probe.” Why? As Nunes puts it, “Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics.

The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”

Do you think if this was House Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Democrat Adam Schiff serving as the head of the committee he would step aside? No way. If this was going on against a Democrat the entire Progressive establishment would be attacking the Ethics Committee for even accepting such accusations.

My Witness

Apr 14, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

When I was young I was not a nice fellow.  Snakes would cross the street when I sauntered down the sidewalk.  My all consuming passion was getting enough alcohol and drugs to help me forget something I couldn’t remember.  Playing music and living in a 24/7 party atmosphere was all I cared about.  Other people were collateral damage on my way to a buzz.  I had the name of my guitar tattooed on my arm so women would know where my loyalties lay.

Spiritually I was dead inside.  I called myself an atheist and I was faithful to my boast.  Anyone who spoke to me of any religion was automatically consigned by me to irrelevance.  The closest thing I had to an actual conviction was a strident attachment to militant apathy.  I didn’t care about anything and I couldn’t stand anyone who did.

Is Anyone Watching Those Who Watch Us?

Apr 6, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

The ongoing tempest in a tea cup concerning Russian hacking and Trump collusion is merely “Why? Oh, why did Hillary lose?” etched out in Washington double speak through the media megaphone.  To sum it all up I’m reminded of a quote from the Wicked Witch of the West, “What a world…what a world.” (Not THAT Wicked Witch of the West the one from the Wizard of Oz.)

Here we are in an America where the government can listen to and record every word or keystroke without a warrant and the person who tells us about it is a traitor.  This is an America obsessed with a manufactured scandal about Russian collusion to elect Trump by people who love to say, “Hillary won the popular vote.” They never seem to connect the dots.  If the Russians hacked our election and Hillary won the popular vote whose side were they on?

I Care More Than You Care See My Ribbon

Apr 1, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

For over twenty years my wife and I were the pastors of churches and leaders of ministries.  Everywhere we ministered we founded programs to feed and clothe those who needed assistance.  These ministries through the work of volunteers and the donations of private citizens fed and clothed thousands all without ever taking a dime of government money.

Back in the dream time when I was young in the ministry,  I helped start a feeding ministry.  We fed so many needy people with groceries and had so many coming for hot meals it was astounding.  We did no means testing.  We fed everyone who came to the door all with volunteers and private donations.

Trump the Chumps

Mar 23, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

This is it.  This is the last chance we have of returning our nation to an agenda of America First.  If the globalists among the perpetually re-elected twin headed bird of prey that is the best Congress money can buy along with their Deep State/Permanent Government allies can successfully thwart this attempt to make America Great Again, there will be no reprieve.  The stenographers of the Democrat Party, the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBS Cartel media megaphone trumpets their fake news every day.  Within hours this becomes the personal opinion of their legions of militantly apathetic low information voters.

President Trump Follow Your Own Advice

Mar 16, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Numerous times the President has said in his opinion the Republicans should let Obamacare alone for a year or two.  Let it implode (as it was designed to do) while the Democrats still own it.

When President Trump gave his well-received speech at CPAC, he said that he has told Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and the Republican leadership in Congress to simply “let it implode.” The law is simply “repealing itself,” Trump told the audience. “All we have to do is let it implode.”  He tweeted Jan. 4, “Republicans must be careful in that the Dems own the failed ObamaCare disaster, with its poor coverage and massive premium increases…”

Trump Protestors Professional Patsies

Mar 11, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

From the snowflake college students who need a safe space to protect them from anyone who might be cruel enough to disagree with their progressive programming to the America last crowd at the DNC, what we are witnessing is an organized effort to overthrow the government of the United States one protest, I mean demonstration, I mean riot at a time.

In the New Speak of our Soros-funded, Alinsky-trained pink shirted fascists diversity means everyone agrees with them. Freedom of speech means no one says anything they disagree with. And the Constitution says whatever they need it to say to do whatever they want.

Trumpism and American Sovereignty

Mar 6, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN. Their four horseman of the American apocalypse; George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like. From NAFTA to TPP from the WTO to the T-TIP they have sought every opportunity to enroll us as just one more state in their fever dream of a super state with them in control.

Trump and the Deep State

Feb 24, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Words have meaning. A word is a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation that functions as a principal carrier of meaning. Rush Limbaugh is a master of the English language in my opinion on a par with Winston Churchill and is the undisputed American master of quips, labeling, and metaphors.

As if to prove the point, Rush has once again coined a phrase that sums up a cultural phenomenon. He has dubbed those Progressives embedded within the federal bureaucracy the Deep State. This label perfectly describes those protected by the civil service acts as well as those political appointees who might be termed BHO holdovers.

They Want a Civil War We Have a Prayer Meeting

Feb 10, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

The American Revolution changed the world.  Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths.  That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  These words shook a world held in the vise grip of hereditary privilege inspiring people around the globe.  Our Constitution established a representative federal republic with a limited government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Anti-Trump Demonstrations Prearranged Prepaid and Predictable

Feb 3, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Just look at the hysterical reaction to President Trump’s long anticipated executive order to limit the admission of refugees from seven countries.

How do leaders in Muslim countries see it?  According to United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, “The vast majority of Muslims and Muslim countries have not been affected by this ban.  This is a temporary ban that will be reviewed within three months. It’s important to take these points into account.”
