DAVIDSON: In What Do You Believe?

Excellent question.

Jim Cathcart is an authority on the topic of personal and executive development. He is a sought-after professional speaker, and the author of 19 books on career achievement, sales, and business strategy. Here is what he says on the power of our beliefs and belief systems:

No one exists without a religion, as observed by that wise sage, Dennis Prager. Everyone has some type of belief system which signals what is good and right, and what is bad and wrong. Every belief system has it “sins” as well: Behaviors and actions that you’re condemned for doing or for not doing.

Race, Race, and Race

In the religion of ‘Racism,’ all things spring from and are measured by race; xenophobia, Islamophobia, and Asian phobia all are sins. Caucasian phobia, however is not a sin in the religion of ‘Racism.’ Somehow, that’s okay.

If you believe that human lives matter, then you are a racist and probably a white supremacist. If you listen to, say, an Al Sharpton or Maxine Waters, then you’ll be regularly informed about how everything comes down to racial oppression and hatred of blacks, or any non-white group. If you can’t embrace their cause, you are guilty.

According to the dictate of the religion of ‘Racism,’ you may not call your main sleeping quarters ‘the master bedroom’ because having a ‘master’ anything implies having a slave. In New Orleans, ‘Racism’ adherents want to remove a functioning road because it is racist!

Few people know that Conservative Icon Barry Goldwater was among the founders of the Arizona NAACP. He loathed discrimination, but because of his conservative views he was routinely labeled as a racist by others. More recently, Donald Trump has consistently been portrayed in the ‘mainstream’ media as a racist, despite a complete lack of evidence. He is confrontational, but he is not a racist.

The Religion of “Sexism”

Religion of “Sexism” advocates regard gender as the center of the universe and the quintessential issue of humankind. The eternal, constant adversary is male domination, generally referred to as some type of phobia, such as transphobia or homophobia.

The woke edition of sexism contends that genders don’t exist except in our preferences. They encourage parents to let their children decide whether they are boys or girls or “none specified.” Singer Demi Lovato recently proclaimed that she’s “pansexual,” which means, essentially, that she is sexually attracted to all things. (I assume that includes animals, fish, and plants.)

Among the advocates of the religion of “Sexism,” it’s not enough that you accept their choice and go on with your life. They want special consideration and public displays of inclusion, and this extends to trans athletes and cross-dressers. How dare you object to cross dressers speaking to elementary school classes!

Revolution or Devolution?

Witness the recent required inclusion of gay relationships in movies, television shows, and advertisements. What other group representing 3% of population has an inclusion rate bordering on 50%? To be gay is fine, but why seek to make it a toss-up choice for everyone?

“Sexism” alarmists feel compelled to control language to advance their belief. No more use of he and she, or man and woman. No more use of any related terms such as human, manual, manage, menstruation, or even manhole covers. These zealots assert that male domination is at the root of all inter-gender relations, such as opening a door, holding one’s umbrella, allowing “ladies first,” or even calling a woman beautiful.

Meanwhile, the rest of nature has no problem with gender. Male and female species are everywhere among animals, insects, plants, etc., and have been since creation. For a little perspective, consider this: You don’t have to believe in gravity for it to always affect you. Moreover, denying its existence won’t diminish its pull.

Hedonism on Demand

Satanism is a belief similar to Hedonism, but it has a sinister “god” as its head; Lucifer, the great deceiver. This is primarily a belief that pleasure and domination, or pain and subjugation, are at the core of our earthly existence.

Satanists would challenge you and argue that they don’t believe in the devil. Nevertheless, they do enjoy his plan. Anything good or Christian-like is a sin to them, whereas all other “sins” are merely ‘to do’ list items for them.

The 2021 Grammy Awards displayed hedonism in the most public of ways. Among the most vile ‘songs’ ever produced and recorded, WAP by Cardi B is an appropriate anthem for Grammy producers and fans. Lookup what the initials WAP stand for and try to read the lyrics if you can stomach them. Then, keep in mind that 8-year olds are routinely exposed to this level of filth.

The White Nationalist Fall Guy

Some will lament, “What about white nationalism?” There is no monolithic, all encompassing organized embrace of this concept. There certainly are racist groups of whites and there are non-racist groups of patriotic Americans. Personally, I have not encountered any white nationalists, but I’ve heard scores of critics hurl this label at others.

White nationalism was concocted and exalted as a catch-all term for denigrating anyone who supports border security, voter ID verification, and addressing America’s problems ahead of global problems. The Left desperately wants to tag the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot as a white nationalist movement, with the assumed leader being Donald Trump. The facts, however, don’t sustain this view.

The intrusion was planned, organized, and executed by deceivers expressly to stain Trump, and the ploy worked according to popular opinion.

The term white nationalism actually is a word play designed to prejudice your opinion, somewhat like “Big business,” “Tax only the rich,” “Kids in cages,” “Path to citizenship,” “Pay their fair share,” and “Everyone is entitled to decent healthcare.” It is difficult for the typical person to argue against such phrases despite the underlying deception.

Freedom for All, Not Merely for Some

You are free to believe what you choose to believe, but you’re not free to interfere with the lives of others who might disagree with you. If you are correct in your assertions, then honestly debate the issue, and prove your case. Or, simply go your own way.

Without inhibiting or transgressing upon others, each of us should have the freedom to choose how we shall live.

Gen. Milley’s Overstepping was Habitual, According to Witnesses

His Chinese collusion was nothing new, it seems.

Published

on

Last week, Americans learned several shocking tidbits of information regarding the last several weeks of the Trump presidency, and it infuriated much of the nation.

The most prominent offense came from General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who was reported to have taken extracurricular actions to preemptively stymy any plans that then-President Trump may have had to either attack China or use our nation’s nuclear arsenal.

In the case of the China story, Milley was said to have made phone calls to his counterparts in Beijing, assuring them that Trump wouldn’t be launching any sort of strike against China during his final days in office.  Milley also made it clear that he would warn them if any such plan was coming to fruition.

This had Americans concerned, believing that Milley had overstepped his role and circumvented the authority of the Commander in Chief.

Now, a witness from inside the administration has suggested that this sort of behavior wasn’t abnormal for Milley.

E. Casey Wardynski, a former assistant secretary of the Army for manpower and reserve affairs, claimed that Milley — who, according to the book, “Peril,” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, called his Chinese counterpart twice to tell him that the US would not attack Beijing — routinely violated the bounds of his authority.

Wardynski said Milley and chief of staff of the US Army Gen. James McConville engaged in a “pattern of behavior” to thwart President Donald Trump.

“These kinds of behaviors and this willingness for military leaders to exceed their authorities and ignore authorities of the civilian officials appointed over them … positions under the Constitution and laws of the country was not something that came to them on Jan. 8,” Wardynski told Fox News.

And then, tersely:

“It was something that they had done for a while.”

Milley has so-far resisted calls for his resignation following the incident.

Political Prisoners in America: the January 6th Capitol Occupiers

No can passively sit by and hope that things will turn out for the better.

Published

The United States of America was founded based on a constitution and amendments that guarantee rights to the individual; a republic where laws prevail, to be dispensed impartially; where unlawful search and seizure is not permitted; and where due process matters. 

We are supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave; the nation which immigrants from around the world yearn to reach; the beacon of democracy and the shining example on Earth of a free people in a free land. Nevertheless, the Biden Administration, has taken action unprecedented in our history. It is treating those individuals who inhabited the U.S. Capitol on January 6th as if they are murderous terrorists. 

The people that Biden is holding, in many cases for months on end in solitary confinement, are being denied their fundamental rights as American citizens. 

An Insurrection? According to Whom?

Large numbers of people who entered the Capitol that day were ushered in by the Capitol guards. They merely walked through doors that were held open for them. The claims of insurrection are entirely ridiculous. No one had weapons. 

How do you mount an insurrection with no armaments? Virtually every Capitol occupier had either a plane reservation or car ride ready for that evening or the next day. They did not intend to stay. In short, no organized attempt to overthrow the government was underway, and every Biden official knows that.

The ranks of actual Trump supporters, however, were infiltrated by members of Antifa and true insurrectionists who sought to create a false flag, making it seem as if Donald Trump and Trump inspired supporters intended to overthrow the U.S. government. 

Trump supporters had no intention of overthrowing the United States government – it is total hogwash as is known by anyone who is familiar with the facts. Ashley Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was killed by a Capitol guard. She posed no threat, however, carried no weapon, and based on the more rambunctious activity of some Capitol occupiers did nothing to earn her fate.

Angel Harrelson, whose husband is among the incarcerated, started a petition to Florida Senator Rick Scott (R). She implored government officials to “Free our political prisoners now! They are being mistreated and tortured. They are innocent until proven guilty. We want the public to see all footage from inside of the capital, now, with no cuts on footage, and no bits and pieces here and there!” She explained that she is one of the family members with a spouse in political prison. 

Biden and Company Keep Reaching New Lows

The Biden Administration, and its incalculably undemocratic, unlawful, and despicable approach to administering justice, is stifling attempts to ensure that these incarcerated individuals receive lawful and constitutional protections. Justice actually must be served before and during the legal proceedings for any of the incarcerated.

What an outrage that a petition even needs to be created, circulated, signed, and submitted. When, indeed, do we petition for basic Constitutional protections, in this case, from our own government?

Biden’s handlers know full well about the treasonous behavior in which they are engaged. They feel all-powerful, however, and appear unconcerned. They’ve got the sycophantic press on their side as well as multi-millions of gullible Democrats, liberals, and progressives who believe that Biden is a kind man, his administration is both fair and just, and the Capitol occupiers are in league with the devil. As usual, the exact opposite is true.

For many decades, the U.S. Department of Justice has engaged in egregious acts of prosecutorial misconduct. DOJ prosecuting attorneys seek convictions by any means necessary. If that involves withholding evidence, delaying court cases, and bleeding the persecuted financially dry, then so be it. Within a 97% conviction rate, as a nation, we have crossed the line into banana republic territory.

Stand Strong, Speak Loudly

Our voices need to be heard: Write to your Congressional representatives, to your Senators, to the editors of your newspapers, and to the gatekeepers of information and communication in our society. This includes the wannabe autocrats at Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twitter, etc, who don’t fool us with their rigged algorithms and ‘community standards.’ 

The contortion of real news by the Leftist gatekeepers, the views that they push, and the censorship in which they’ve been engaged, for far too long, will not diminish us. We know their end game: it is total control of the masses, ever to be ruled by a fraudulently elected ruling class, backed by über-liberal billionaires who believe they are the anointed ones.

No can passively sit by and hope that things will turn out for the better.
