From Darkness To Light

For more than a week the nation has been watching the Trump transition team and the naming of cabinet members. It has been slow, but then, Trump does not have the cronies to repay that a typical president-elect does, nor does he have an apparatus to take from the Bush Administration and install into his own, because the establishment turned its collective backs on Trump early on.


The appointment of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General should send shockwaves through the Obama Administration, because Senator Sessions has always been one to hold others accountable against all headwinds. No one knows the future, but if this nation is ever to regain a semblance of credibility it must go through the darkness to get to the light. The law is the law and it is the law for everyone. If that is not true, and it has not been for a long time, then there is no justice.


Sanctuary cities, illegal immigration, pay for play, obstruction of justice, violation of the First, Second, Third (if violations of the Fourth allow for government surveillance in one's home without warrant or knowledge constitutes troops housed among the people) Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth (think about the IRS), Ninth and Tenth Amendments must be addressed.


After decades of shuffling the Constitution off the books, of shrugging off violations with an understanding that the government has no interest in upholding the Constitution where it protects individuals, but demands compliance where it aids the government, such as the Sixteenth Amendment, shows us how diseased this system has become. With a concerted attempt to turn it around, with appointments like Sessions as Attorney General, Supreme Court Justices who hold the Constitution inviolate, there is a chance to reverse the course of the nation.


No, it is not probable that this will happen. Time and time again the people have elected those they thought would do something on their behalf in Washington, only to have their hopes dashed in the first week. That does not change the fact that we are at a crucial crossroads. The media has been exposed as frauds; Twitter has been exposed as intolerant; the power of the giant electronic media companies like Google face possible anti-trust violations; Obamacare has bankrupted families; "green" boondoggles have cost taxpayers billions with no concrete science behind their claims; political correctness has driven divisions among the people; the education system is dismal and getting worse. Simply a return to Constitutional principles would rectify almost all of these failures of the left.


That is all it would take and if Donald Trump has the will to go through the darkness to get to the light, his presidency will stand as a beacon to future generations. This is what is possible, but indictments will have to be issued and the powerful held to account. This is one reason it is unlikely to take place, but that is what was voted upon in the last election. It was not a vote for Trump as a person, but as an outsider who would prosecute the agenda. A violation of this confidence will likely end with a Democrat in the Oval Office and a rebellion at every level.

  1. Seems to be a war between YAHUAHS law and mans law.
    In this physical world the Truth is in the middlle. Ask yourselves, has america repented? Has america or the world turned to or back to Yahuah? These "leaders" tempt us with false idols and covetousness. Have we as a nation realised,why we deserved Obama,for a leader? Do we understand the purpose of tribulation?

  2. "The law is the law and it is the law for everyone. If that is not true, and it has not been for a long time..."

    Yeah, since 1787. As became very evident by 1861.

    "Time and time again the people have elected those they thought would do something on their behalf..."

    A foolish and vain hope - as if the ruling class, the dregs of society, are not driven by self-interest just like everyone else is. The whole notion of representative government is a fraud, unworkable on its face.

    Panarchy might be an improvement, and multiple secessions certainly would help; but humans are tribal and the tribes don't scale well when they get over about 150 individuals. We are doomed always to have conflict when saddled with these massive states. If we don't burn the world in a nuclear holocaust, we will be doing about as well as could be expected.

    1. So, Paul, what is your system? I don't know about you, but this what we have, not some dream of what could be. This is it. There is no other option, because no matter what you do people will aggregate, that is as much their nature as to act in self interest. This is what the law is intended to do and all I have said is when the law does not serve its purpose, it is the fault of the people and their duty and right to bring others into compliance.
      But, your proposal doesn't work either. 150 people? What is that a magic number? By your statements, anything other than an individual is a corruption, because there will be someone there to dominate and abuse their power.
      Trust me, it works better here than it does in Africa, which is basically your system, small, tribal, unorganized, incapable of anything larger than manipulation of about four acres square and ripe for more organized societies to conquer.
      So, describe to me your idea of society. Or, start your own blog so I can ridicule it on regularity.

    2. People are tribal, agreed? Large concentrations of power are worse than small ones, agreed? The remedy, such as there are any (given the human material we have to work with) are secession, movement and Panarchy. I prefer 50 Americas to one gigantic, homogenized America. With 50 diverse Americas, I have a much better chance to find and move to the one that suits me. Panarchy is an innovation we already know can work, as with religious tolerance.

      Africa suffers from the wrong culture (little respect for private property), lack of serious weapons held by a significant segment of the populace, malnutrition, low IQ as a result, and disease and other natural threats.

      I'm not saying we should shoot for societies numbering 150; too late for that now. But that is what works for humans; it's in our genes, worked out over eons. The smaller our societies can get, within reason, and within the constraints necessary for defense, the better.

  4. My idea of society is live and let live, support yourself and your family, and for those who can't (not want) we have a safety net not a hammock; administered by small government and (small-g) governors with term limits and consequences.

    1. I agree with you Anonymous, best option is live and let live, support yourself, and family.

      There's a name for what doing such is called, and it's name is Anarchy/Voluntarism. You and everyone else practice it every day without thinking of it when you go about your daily life shopping for what you need and peaceably interacting with others without enacting force or fraud. It's what Paul, I and others advocate on a daily basis and yes, it does work..far better than operating under the idea of statism, otherwise known as 'the most dangerous superstition'(which is the title of Larken's book detailing why 'gov/authority' doesn't exist and how to free one's mind from the 'cult of authority').

      As for those who do need true charity though I don't support the idea of having ANY 'gov' to help them as there in not and never has been any such thing as 'small government' as the idea of 'gov' is the act of saying that one agrees to the idea of a ruling class and they accept that it owns and rules them..slavery no way you cut it. Also no 'gov' stays 'small' and confined..it enables nothing more than a parasitic class of narcissists and sociopaths who's only goals are to both control everything/everyone and see 'gov' expand/grow...just like a cancer.

      As for the 'constitution'; sorry TL but I'm not at all a parchment worshipper. It was and is nothing more than a contrived fraud foisted upon the formerly free colonies by Hamilton and his friends in the lawyer/bankster class. If you don't believe me feel free to read Ken Royce's "Hologram of Liberty" where he dissects this rotting sacred cow properly and thoroughly.
      Lysander Spooner is another one to read on this subject.

      As Larken Rose says, "Go back to the constitution?!..what makes you think that it'll be any different the second time around?"

      I choose to own myself and respect others self-ownership; I have absolutely no obligation or duty to any parasitic ruling class or their false gods of 'gov/authority'. I'm Free from it; if TL and others still wish to adorn themselves with such chains that's their choice, they are not free to attempt to coerce such on me or any other individual through the frauds of a 'constitution' or 'representative gov'/republic/democracy' or any other statist swill..they can keep it to themselves if they would politely do so.

      Yours In Liberty via Anarchy..not statism!

    2. Steve, what I have been trying to explain is that we cannot go back to hunter gatherers, we are past that, the world is past that and those who aren't are on the menu of those who are.

      Yes, you can divorce yourself from society, whether concocted for the benefit of bankers and lawyers if you want to, but they are still there and they are still running things. And, I am not a Constitution worshiper, but it is something to help explain to people that something is wrong and they have the power to do something about it, that's all, because the vast, vast majority of people are not among the enlightened dirt worshipers.
      Yes, we can live our lives outside of their trappings, at least in our own minds, but to follow your advice is to devolve and while that might be a preferable way of life, if practiced, we would merely present ourselves as an inviting target for other more powerful nations, because dirt worshipers didn't build nuclear weapons, or battleships, or pay armies and without those things one is just an African waiting for the next warlord to come along.

  5. Trump might not be the answer to changing the direction that this country is headed, but he's a damn good start. He's got the likes of CNN crying foul and he's got the liberal establishment stunned and not quite sure where to attack him first. If Trump stays the course and continues to move government back to the middle there is a chance that he could very well turn this nation around and make as he has said, America great again. If not then prepare for the worst, better yet prepare anyways.

  6. So, paul, what exactly is your solution, do you have anything workable? We have the best Constitutional framework yet designed.
    The problem is with corrupt individuals and lack of participation by the common man it was designed to be operated by.
    It's past time to eliminate the corrupt and apathetic, that is the unfortunate bottom line. Instead we're psychologically hamstrung into believing that no action is viable for producing the results we seek.

    Jerk yourself off in private, or provide a workable solution.

    1. "The problem is with corrupt individuals and lack of participation by the common man it was designed to be operated by."

      I'd say instead that the problem is with power, which can corrupt even the most virtuous individuals. So, the less concentrated the power, the better - again recognizing there may be some constraints in that direction for a viable defense. As to "lack of participation", people want to live their own lives, not live for others with power. If the Constitution was designed requiring significant participation all the time from everybody, no wonder it doesn't work.

      You cannot eliminate "the corrupt" and shouldn't eliminate "the apathetic" who are just minding their own business. What you can and should eliminate is centralized power.

      Imagine we have 50 independent states (of course, still trading with each other), and say one state, like California, decides to go with full-blown socialism. What will happen? Productive Californians will emigrate to friendlier states, and California will go bankrupt in short order. The idiocy and bad policy is self-correcting, unlike the current state of affairs.

    2. The socialists emigrated from bankrupt California to a growing economy in Colorado, bringing socialist teachers, ideals, unions, propaganda and indoctrination. In sixteen years Colorado has gone from solid red to blue.

      They can't be re-educated. Too soon for concentration camps. Can't legally send them back or eliminate them.

      Paul, I'm glad to see you're making progress to a solution though.

  7. Anarchy, what is to stop a large familial clan or tribe from foisting they're power onto the peaceful who want to live and let live? What if your tribe is small and remote from others?

    I suggest that no matter what method of societal organization is to follow we've first got to un-fuck ourselves from the here and now.

    How does one achieve peaceful anarchy in our current predicament... Refuse to participate, nullification, quit paying property taxes, terminate employment that automatically deducts Fed and State taxes??? I know of no-one who has truly achieved this true individual independence who resides free on American soil.

    When is one not subject to authority or arbitrary laws, not even in death unless you are atheist and correct in your beliefs... yet still you are subject to the laws of physics and nature?

    This utopian liberty I submit is non existent.
    Pure philosophical masterbation. We got what we got, it is what is. We fix it or rid ourselves of it.

    1. Aggression is stopped by guns, same as today, and by temporary alliance with other tribes. Only difference is, there is not a government getting in the way of defending yourself.

      Don't like anarchy? Don't be an anarchist, simple enough. But, leave anarchists alone. Don't expect them to become fellow believers in the government religion or to become unwilling subjects of your Constitution.

    2. I haven't said I don't like or would attempt to encroach on or harm them. I'm simply stating the obvious that it is an out dated and impractical system in today's "civilization". It can't be projected to 330 million. It does not translate to smaller remote clans. You don't have enough ammo or armor to protect you from those who do.

      You and the good people you convince will be wiped out, not mercifully nor on your terms.

    3. I'm not a follower of govt. religion any more than you are Paul. I'm working within a corrupt system making the best of it. I am also not deluded enough to convince myself that simply proclaiming myself to be free of it that it actually makes it so.

      If you pay Fed or State tax, property tax or sales tax you, amigo are part of the system, you are also consenting to be governed by system.

      I strive each day to become truly independent and totally self sufficient.
      But, reality...
