The Honeymoon Phase

o, you start dating someone. You enter into what is called the "Excitement Stage." You are excited about the prospects to be. And you can let your imagination run free here. 

This stage is short lived. Then you enter into what is referred to as a the "Honeymoon Period."  This period may last anywhere from several months to a few years. This is a period early on in a relationship where everything seems carefree and happy. 

Of course, he or she cannot do anything wrong. Everything seems so perfect. And this period only lasts so long, and reality sets in. You learn that your partner is flawed. 

Of course, then you spend time introducing her to your friends and family members. And, of course, before that you introduce her to your family. You take her to your favorite hangouts and restaurants. You take her to see the sunset in your favorite location, etc. etc. And everything works out great. She loves your friends and you love hers. She loves where you enjoy watching the sunset. And you enjoy whatever she shows you about her life. 

So, for quite some time, during this honeymoon period, you are introducing her to your life. And, of course, when you are visiting her, it's the opposite: she introduces you to her life. Oh, the honeymoon days. 

At some point, the honeymoon period will end. Reality sets in. You learn that she is a flawed individual and she learns your flaws. This is called the adjustment phase. Then, if you survive this, you travel to the adjustment phase. And then you get married and live your life together. 

So, basically, you'll eventually run out of new things to show her. At that time, you basically sit around hoping that you don't annoy each other. Can you survive this part of the relationship? That is the question. 

FBI, DOJ Weaponized Against Trump

I wrote a while back how my biggest fear is the weaponization of government against the private sector. And today we read in the news how the Florida residence of Donald Trump, Mar'a'Lago, has been raided by the FBI. Attorney General Merrick Garland has admitted that he ordered the raid. And, of course, Merrick is the head of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). 

Garland has said he ordered the raid. He said they are looking for classified documents that the Fed has asked Trump to return. Trump has not turned in those documents. And so, Garland ordered the FBI to raid Trump's home. 

Garland must know that the person he ordered the raid against is probably going to be the person who will challenge his boss in 2022. So, the risk of this search is insurmountable. This search better turn up a smoking gun. Or Garland will go down as one of the biggest bumble head in U.S. history. And this could be one of the biggest blunders in history. It could be akin to Al Capone's Vault. 

This brings up a few questions. 

Is there a potential crime listed on the warrant? 

No government organization can legally search anyone's home without a warrant. A warrant must list a reason for the search. And it cannot just list that it is searching for documents. It must note a potential crime. As in, it must note that the president was charged of X crime. And the search is looking for evidence. 

The warrant says that the FBI has been ordered to search Trump's home for classified documents. It does not list a crime Trump has been charged with. 

This raises a huge red flag. 

You cannot order a search warrant without stating the crime that was committed. So, in this case, it looks like this is a situation of a warrant in search of a crime. The goal here is to grab every document with the hopes that one of them reveals a crime. 

Is this search politicized? 

Democrats spent the entire four years of the Trump presidency trying to convict him of a crime. You had the Russian scandal where they spent four years trying to convince Americans that Trump was colluding with the Russians. And it was proven to be a complete hoax. 

Now they are still going after him long after he was voted out of office. And there is a good chance he will be the next challenger to Garland's boss.  And this makes it look like the FBI has been weaponized or politicized against a future presidential challenger. It makes it look like they are scared to death of Trump politically, and they will do anything in their power to get rid of him. 

So far they have failed miserably. And so, here you have the FBI going into Mar'a'Lago and grabbing every paper they can get their hands on. And they are hoping that one of those documents reveals a crime. Or perhaps one of those documents proves Trump colluded with Russia. Anything to get rid of Trump. 

This raises another red flag. 

Are they declassified documents? 

Trump has said that all the documents obtained by the FBI were declassified. If this is the case, then the raid was pointless to begin with. 

Presidents have a lot of work to do. So they often take work home to review. Obama did this. Clinton did this. Bush H and Bush W did this. And Trump did this. So, it is not uncommon for former presidents to have documents in their homes. 

To take documents home they need to be declassified. Interestingly, the president is the only person in the U.S. with the power to declassify documents. And all he needs to say is, "I declare these documents unclassified." He does not need to go through a ceremony, or even write his signature, to make documents declassified. 

And even if Trump forgot to do this, he certainly would not be the first. And all he would need to do is say he declassified them, because how would any lawyer be able to prove that he didn't declassify them. So, on this ground, it would be awfully hard for any lawyer to submit any of the documents obtained during the raid into a court of law. 

And this raises another red flag. 


So, we have determined that many former presidents have documents in their home. The reason the White House might want the documents at Trump's home is because they believe they pose a security risk. And, of course, keeping us safe is the #1 job of any president. Still, are documents stored in boxes or in safes at Mar'a'Lago a security risk. 

Let's look at it this way. Let's look at Hillary Clinton. She had classified information on her emails. And she does not have the ability to declassify them because she was never president. She had information on her emails. And I'm sure some of the information was top-secret information. 

And she had these emails on an unsecured server. And she conveniently lost those emails. So, what documents are at greater risk for being a security risk: documents stored in boxes or in safes in Trump's home, or documents stored on an unsecured server? 

And Clinton's home was not raided by the FBI.

What Is The Cause Of All This Divisiveness?

 Who caused the divisiveness in our country? Republicans? Donald Trump. I don't think so. The divisiveness was caused by those who believe in free speech unless you are a republican. The divisiveness was caused by people who force others to think the same as they do. 

I can give you many examples. Let's start with abortion. Rowe probably would have stayed had democrats not tried to expand abortion rights all the way to birth. Then they added late term abortions, meaning that a baby is killed that was perfectly capable of being a fully functioning human being. 

And then you had democrats making laws where republicans were forced to pay for abortions through their taxes. Look, I don't want you taking my hard earned money and spending it on things I don't approve of. 

And from here I can segue to global warming. Democrats believe in global warming. That's fine. But then democrats want to tax republicans and force them to pay for global warming via their taxes. Is that fair? It is if you are a democrat. But it's not fair if you are a republican. 

And republicans aren't necessarily anti-global warming. Some are. Some are not. Still, we know that raising taxes for Americans and increasing regulations to businesses is not the way to improve global warming. If they worked, then at what point have you taken enough of our money? When do you decide: Okay, we are done. The answer is you will never be satisfied. 

And you wonder why we are divisive. 

You have democrats believe illegal immigrants should be allowed to freely come into our country with no checks on whether they carry deadly diseases or are criminals. And then they send these people to republican areas of the country and tell us we have to feed and take care of them. How is that fair?

It's Not Fair To Make Me Pay Off Your Debt

My liberal friend said Biden is going to help students pay off their debt. He said his kids have $60,000 in student loan debt. And he thinks it's not fair they have to have this debt. So he's all for Biden at least giving $10,000 to each student.  

And I said that's not fair to me. And he said if I don't think it's fair, then I don't understand the student loan debt problem. And I said that it's not fair that you take on a big debt and I have to pay it off. I don't think it's fair that I work my ass off, I work two jobs to pay off my debt and maintain a life. So it's not fair that I should have to pay even more in taxes to pay of your debt so you can maintain your life too. That is not fair. 

I do agree there is a student debt problem. But I am not responsible for it. If you want to help kids with high student loans, then make the colleges and universities responsible for overcharging. Make the colleges and universities find ways of lowering costs, rather than punishing people like me.

Democrats Are Responsible For Dividing Our Country, Not Republicans

My friend told me Trump is responsible for dividing our country. it is not true. He said it is because of his mean words. Him calling democrats and people he doesn't agree with stupid. But we know this is not true, as democrats have been mean to republicans for years. And republicans continue to take the high road. And it gets them no where.  Until Trump came along and gave democrats some of their own game. And I talked about this yesterday.

Today I can take this a step further. Think of the things democrats are trying to do to America. Democrats are the ones who want to take guns away from law abiding citizens. Democrats are the ones who are allowing illegal immigrants to come across our borders to take our jobs and rape our women. They are for no borders so drugs can pour across our borders. 

Democrats are the ones who want to take your well earned money to give it to causes that you don't support. They want to take your money to pay off the loans of college students, when you had to pay off yours on your own. Heck, my friend said that, since I don't want to do this is because I don't understand the loan problem facing young adults today. Really? I am struggling to pay my bills because of high gas prices and inflation. And my friend thinks my money needs to go towards giving $10,000 to every person with a college loan. Why is that my responsibility? Why do I have to pay off the debts of people I don't even know? And all that is going to do is add to our inflation problem. 

It's democrats who want to allow men who think they are women to compete against our women in events like swimming. It is democrats who want men who identify as women to use the same bathrooms as our daughters. It's democrats who want to teach our children about sex when they are in elementary school, and they want to do this against the will of parents. 

It is democrats to fire our white male teachers and coaches who pray with our children after a victory on the soccer field. It's democrats who want to take God out of our lives, and they make every effort they can to take God out of our kid's lives. 

It is democrats who are teaching our kids the opposite of what we want them to learn. It is democrats who want to teach our kids that our great nation was built by slavery, while we want our kids to be taught the truth, that our nation was built despite slavery. They want to teach our kids that America is the cause of all the problems in the world. While we want our kids to know the truth, that other nations are free BECAUSE of America. 

It's democrats who forced people to wear masks against their wishes during COVID. It's democrats who tried to force people to get vaccines during COVID. And yet they say things like, "My body my choice," in regards to allowing mothers to murder their babies. It's democrats who ignore our constitution and force things on us that that we do not want. 

It is democrats who try to make one group of people less offended while at the same time offending another group of people.  It's democrats who make sure minorities are respected and are the focus of policies, while at the same time denying the rights of the privileged. And they have bias training  for white Christian men that forces them to agree to things that are against their faith and traditions just to keep their jobs.

It is democrats who call republicans "a basket of deplorables." And yet Trump calling Hillary "Crazy Hillary" is what is causing a national divide? It's crazy. 

It's democrats who give those accused of crimes no bail. And it's democrats who get criminals out of jail for free, only so these people can commit more crimes while they are free. And then they wonder why crime rates like murders are soaring in our cities. 

Trump cut taxes and regulations. Trump had the economy soaring. Trump closed our borders and made sure illegals stayed out. Trump made it so black and Hispanic unemployment was lower that it has ever been in recorded history. Female unemployment was lower than it was for more than half a century. The economy was doing better than it had in decades. 

Democrats see two Americas: Those who are wealthy and those who live paycheck to paycheck. Those who are traditional Americans (white, Christian) and those who are minorities (black, women, Indians, Hispanic, etc.). Democrats view those who worked hard and succeeded as the enemy, and those who struggle are, and the good guys are the poor and underclassed. And they aim to pit these two groups against one another by their policies and their words. They say the rich are greedy. They say the rich don't pay their fair share. They say these mean things, they do all these mean things, yet they want you to think Trump is mean.  

And, of course, the end result is an America divided. 

And yet Trump is responsible for our national divide? Yeah! We know the truth. Trump is the result of their divisive politics. The the cause of national divide is liberalism and the democrats who spread it.

Trump Did Not Cause Division In Our Country

I had a coworker tell me that Donald Trump caused division in our country. I had no choice to call him on it. The people who caused division in our country are democrats. 

Democrats for years have talked down to republicans in an arrogant and condescending way. They have ripped and trashed republicans. And all republicans do is take the high road. 

And, of course, the media paid no attention to democrats when they did this because the media agreed with democrats. And this is because most people in the media are democrats. 

The entire eight years of Bush that's all democrats did was trash him. They trashed him so much they drove his approval numbers into the 30s. And the reason his numbers went down so low is because he refused to defend himself. Like other republicans, he took the high road. He did not defend himself. He even said that it's not his job to defend himself, it's history to do that. 

And here comes Trump. He calls democrats on for what they were. And he was the only republican in modern history to do this. And he did such a great job at it that he was elected president. 

And now democrats have the nerve to say that Trump is the meanest guy and he is the one who caused division in our country. 

I have a good analogy here. There was a man who was married. And his wife for years nagged him. His wife complained about just about everything this guy did. And he took the high road. He never said anything back to his wife. He just kept taking the hits. 

He did this for years and years. He would clean the house. And she would come home and say, "This house looks like shit!  

And finally, after many years of marriage, he hit a wall. He was fed up with how he was being treated. So he decided to talk to her. And a fight ensued. And the wife said, "You are so mean!"

The truth was, that his wife was mean. She was mean to him for years. And the one time he got the nerve to stand up to her, now she calls him mean. 

The same thing with democrats and Trump. Democrats were mean to republicans for years. And finally republicans get Trump. And he calls it how it is. He calls democrats on their skulduggery. And now he's the mean guy who causes division in our country. 

This only happens because the media only reports meanness when it's republicans doing it. Democrats have been doing this for years. If you listen to Fox or conservative media, you are aware of this. But, if all you do is listen to CBC, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, etc, then you are blind to the truth. Sorry, but it's true.
