Paul's Passing Thoughts

Congressman Jim Jordan and the Freedom Wars

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on July 9, 2018

 

Yes, you can boil all reality down to sin versus holiness. Obviously, the theme of good and evil overshadows all reality. But the close second is freedom versus slavery. Freedom versus tyranny. Freedom versus despotism. Even the Bible frames sin according to freedom versus slavery; that is, freedom from sin versus being enslaved to sin. And it is the “truth” that sets us free according to the Bible.

The problem with politics follows: it usually deals with bantering about symptoms and not the core issue. Is man capable of self-rule? Is the purpose of government for securing the right of the individual to be free? Or is government for the purpose of protecting man from himself? Is the sole value of a person determined by their ability to contribute to the mother-state? Is it efficacious to humanity that as many citizens as possible support the state for humanity’s survival?

The people of the world fall into one of these two  philosophies, and these two philosophies are at war with each other. Listen to people carefully when they talk and you will hear one of these two philosophies emerge from their mindset. During a popular evening talk show before the previous presidential election, a popular comedian stated,

To me, it’s really exciting to have the first mother in the White House. It’s not about the first woman, it’s about the first mom. Because a mother just does it. She feeds you and teaches you, protects you. She takes care of sh*t… We need just a tough b*tch mother who nobody likes and who just does sh*t.

As the adage states, good humor is funny because there is some truth in it. The cited statement is the crass example of Mark Twain’s version: “Humor is the good natured side of a truth.” Gee, think about it gang, doesn’t it make perfect since to have someone with mothering instincts leading the country? Right, if people remain as children. Also along these same lines concerning government as parent and the people as the children, according to an interview with Michelle Obama,

The Obama administration “was like having the ‘good parent’ at home,” the former first lady said. “The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”

“And now we have the other parent,” Obama added. “We thought it’d feel fun — maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late and not follow the rules.”

In essence, Obama reiterated the problem with forms of government that allow the children to run the household. What will happen? Civilization will go to hell in a handbasket. Her husband framed it in other ways; Americans are dumb hicks who cling to their guns and Bibles, and only think they build stuff on their own apart from the government.

That’s the war we see playing out in today’s politics. Yes, it’s that simple. Those who believe that mankind doesn’t need a mother are a threat to the very existence of mankind and want to prevent mom from feeding the poor and taking care of old people.

Until now, Republicans have been half pregnant with one and half pregnant with the other leading to some pretty tame political warfare, but Donald Trump is a purist regarding individualism. Therefore, Katy bar the door because it is going to get real ugly.

Once upon a time, there were some folks at the FBI that were from the mothering point of view. Because the great unwashed children don’t know what’s best for humanity and just want to eat candy and go to bed when they want to, they decided to launch an underground coup d’état against the will of the children. And where could one of these agents “smell the Trump support”? At Walmart where dumb hicks and the lowbred shop.

Representative Jim Jordan is entangled in the war because he is on the frontlines of exposing what the FBI tried to do, and are arrogantly moving forward with the scheme regardless of the latest revelations thanks to Jordan and others. I thought it would be interesting to discuss the ruse they are using to try to destroy him.

The discussion will start with my own experience as a young person involved in sports. While I was in high school and my first year of college, I was heavily involved in weight training/weightlifting.  My training partner and I had a membership at Vic Tanny’s. There was some guy who was a member there that was obviously gay and came on to other guys in the locker room. It was nothing overt for the most part, rather subtle, but there was a lot of locker-room banter about the guy. Actually, the guy came on to me one time in front of several others in the locker-room and it really wasn’t all that subtle, but no one took it seriously because it was common knowledge that if the guy tried anything he would end up in traction. Even in the 70’s, expelling a guy like him from membership was just something you didn’t do.

Now, let’s say he did take his behavior to a criminal level of some sort, and I was unaware of it. Does that make me complicit in some sort of criminal abuse coverup? Hardly. Secondly, by the way, when I was involved in high school sports in the 70s I do remember that there was an administrative fixation with hernias. This was also the brunt of locker-room banter that labeled it some sort of weird infatuation on the part of the doctor or doctors. I remember it being dubbed, “showtime” by the silly adolescents that we were.

Also, when I was in high school, it was common knowledge that the girl’s gym teacher was a lesbian. That was the topic of a whole bunch of talk flowing from youthful indiscretion. No one in those days came out of the closet, but the lady didn’t try to hide it either. Everybody knew, but it couldn’t be proven; even if it was provable, it wouldn’t have been grounds for dismissal. Let’s say she did something criminal on school premises back in the 70s and it was outed by a victim in our day? Does that make everyone aware of the banter concerning her at the time complicate in a criminal coverup? Hardly.

I strongly suspect that the left is trying to apply this same reality to Jordan in order to ruin his life and neutralize him in his efforts to expose the so-called “deep state.” And trust me, they are angling for actual criminal charges. Remember Joe Paterno? I understand Paterno was privy to an actual rape act, but the information was secondhand and he reported it to his superiors. In other words, he didn’t actually witness it himself, but because he didn’t go to the police himself, he was well on his way to being indicted before he died.

This is what they have in store for Jordan because he believes we aren’t children in need of a nanny state. Man will always have to fight to remain free because in this sinful world freedom has a price and always will,

and sooner than later the price is blood.

    One’s past is always ready to make a comeback, like a Rocky movie. When it comes to sin; however, Jesus took care of it and is it no more; it’s gone. According to Calvinists and the like, our sin(s) are only ‘covered.’ In other words, it is still there, under the magician’s black velvet cloth, next to the bunny. The left is applying Calvinist tactics here, whether they are aware of it or not. Hillarious.

    Gee, there are things in my past of which I’m still ashamed, mostly because they were stupid things I did. But regarding Jordan; yeah, even from here where I am, I can see it’s dirty politics, and the agenda has been pointed out well by you, Paul.

    Oh, don’t feel exclusive, Paul…a guy went bananas over my legs not too long ago. And all I’d wanted to do was buy coffee. Darn, I chased him away with some of my sarcasm, which I always carry with me. One never knows. I asked him if he had a single, younger sister.

    His nephew was killed in a car wreck last week on top of everything else.

    The week after you grill the weasel, all the sudden you are a pedo sympathizer. Anyone whose been involved in church politics recognizes the character assault that inevitably follows calling out wrongdoers.

      I think they are after more than his name and career…I think they are angling for criminal charges.

    Another aspect of this is two tiered justice. Or, I guess every Ted Kennedy Bill should be repealed based on his behavior. We can start with his encroachment of government in health care with HMO’s in the late 70’s and go back to a free market. Lol.

    And btw, fewer and fewer people in flyover country care anymore. The 24/7 outrage has people meters breaking.
