The picture is of me in Houston, Texas at age two. I’m now age 90.
The news headline this May 28, 2016: “Clinton email headache is about to get worse.” The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. There’s a lot to write about today.
U.S. presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, in spite of the establishment’s bitterness, continues to gain popular support. Trump’s meteoritic splash in America, an example of self-empowerment, Trump continues to gain regardless of his scorn of political correctness and the status quo. The Republican Old Guard and the press’ negativity—simply because he is an outsider financing his own campaign—what a blessing! Trump, a highly successful entrepreneur, with open arms we common folks accept his anti-establishment ideas. Goodbye Barack Hussein Obama; it has been nice to know you.
Little wonder that the establishment is discombobulated—absolutely appalled! Trump’s announced plans—oh my God, how could anyone think his way!!! The establishment simply can’t accept the fact that the American people do not trust their government. The servants of the people think we are gullible and simple minded. And this Jackass Trump makes our representatives look like saps. It’s too much to take.
Ah yes! The Roosevelt family migrated from Holland to Manhattan. So I read, they were a notch above the average. They remained in Manhattan to became the original American aristocracy. After generations of wealth and social responsibilities to the poor and needy, and the arts, came Theodore Roosevelt. In his youth, Teddy was sickly and a seriously ill asthmatic. He frequently felt like he was choking to death. Inwardly terrified, little Teddy’s father taught him to overcome his physical afflictions. He greatly admired his father’s strength of moral character. Teddy worked out and built his body. It was remarkable what he did. Always on the go, Teddy had a sharp mind and was an incessant gabbiest. He was a speed reader, sometimes reading three books in a day. One of the intelligentsia, often not practical, an ideologue, Teddy was a natural-born leader.
Came the Civil War. Teddy’s mother was a Southern Bell of means. She could not bear the thought that her husband would join the Union Army and fight her southern slave owning family. Reluctantly, her husband agreed. He hired a man to take his place, as was the custom of the rich. It was absolutely appalling to Teddy. He never got over it. To reestablish the honor of the Roosevelt family, Teddy was gung ho to go to war and show his bravery. With a wife and children, he became a colonel in the war against Spain—and proved the Roosevelt bravery at the cost of 189 of his men’s lives in a charge up a hill against Spanish fortifications. Teddy became an American war hero, restored the Roosevelt name.
Republican President Theodore Roosevelt was America’s first “progressive.” Not many know that. Rather than free enterprise, and let the best man win, Roosevelt was for big government. Instead of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Teddy wanted the American people to be guaranteed happiness. Well, after generations of immense wealth, what do you expect? Teddy had no earthly conception of what it took to be successful. Success, in Teddy’s view, was natural, an act of God. He was floating in an ocean of wealth, as far as he could see in any direction. His cousin, fifth removed, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was a great admirer of Teddy. Franklin, a Democrat, and Republican Teddy both immensely wealthy, were alike in their politically progressive philosophies—a government guaranteed right to happiness—nothing demanded of the disadvantaged individual of course, growing millions of them. After all, the individual can’t help being born poor and stupid. They should be financially equal with everyone, right? The Roosevelts, including Eleanor, were far out liberals who believed that they were especially blessed by God to lead their brothers and sisters to better lives—self-appointed do-gooders they were. Ordered by God Almighty, these, the wealth of the nation, ordered to make the world a better place for the meek and poor, by taking from those who had and giving to the not so rich. They had not experienced enough of life to know any better.
Today there are 58,000,000 Americans living on food stamps; growing millions of government workers earning three times the wages of private sector workers doing the same work; a $19 trillion national debt, growing out of control, interest rates kept far below where they ought to be by pumping trillions of worthless paper money into the economy. Otherwise, it would take the entire income of the Federal government just to pay the interest on the debt.
It is just a question of time until the worst financial disaster of all times befalls us. And where will those good Sumerians who brought this abomination on us be? We will be their slaves; that is, if we are lucky enough to be alive.
Ever since Republican President Calvin Coolidge had dismantled Democrat President Woodrow Wilson’s big spending government programs and cut taxes to end the depression Wilson caused, America’s economy had blossomed and boomed. I arrived, born in 1925, in the era short skirts, speak-easies and bathtub gin. I love to listen to Dixieland bands playing the Charleston.
The Federal Reserve Bank left interest rates low. They called it the Roaring Twenties. With the stock market crash, the Fed raised interest rates, turning a recession into the Great Depression. Republican Hoover had started spending big time and raised taxes, hoping to end the recession, Democrats raising hell. You won’t believe it. Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt won the election handedly in 1933, and got a Democratic Congress as well. Roosevelt, the socialist progressive, doubled government spending, dragging the Great Depression out for years. Reminds you of Democrat Barack Hussein Obama and Republican George Walker Bush. Obama quadrupled the spending of Bush.
In 1933, FDR claimed that even if it was not written in the Constitution, it was the government’s “inherent duty” to keep the American people from starving. The Supreme Court did not object to emergency measures. The Court rejected Roosevelt’s National Recovery Act. The Court’s test, as to a right, was whether the right at issue was “of the very essence of a scheme of ordered liberty,” by reason that neither liberty nor justice would exist if such a right were sacrificed. But government’s “inherent duty” rises above the law. And they call themselves intelligent?
In America, the law is king. Said the Old Court, “A tax to promote the general welfare ( Article I, Section 3-1) cannot be wrested out of its setting and legalized by ignoring it purpose as the mere instrumentality for bringing about a desired end.”
In Cooley’s Constitutional Limitations, due process of law is identified with the doctrine of vested rights drawn from natural law. Thus, speaking for the Roosevelt packed Supreme Court, Justice Brandeis brilliant summation: “Property is only a means. It has been the frequent error of our Court that they have made the means the end:” Roosevelt’s New Deal law was the law of the jungle.
Now really! We’ve not only got the legalization of a tax, wresting Federal income tax out of its Article I setting, but the individual’s sacred right to property, merely the means to a government end? And, Justice Douglas: The Ninth Amendment is as a moon partially eclipsed by other parts of the Constitution. His “penumbra theory” has won assent of the majority of Roosevelt’s “New Deal” idea of the law merely the interests of the powerful. This leaves us with the Due Process clause of the Fifth Amendment.
A taxpayer grievance, if a personal stake in the outcome is determined, ruled the Supreme Court in Flast at 98: “An analysis of the function served by standing limitations compels a rejection of the Government’s position.”
The government position: “the scheme of separation of powers, and the deference owed by the federal judiciary to the other two branches of government within that scheme, present an absolute bar to taxpayer suits challenging the validity of federal spending programs.”
Thus, here we are with two opposing views, one by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government, the other by the Supreme Court.
Now for my case. The U.S. Tax Court ruled in my favor and against the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. The Commissioner ignored the Tax Court ruling. Two U.S. District Courts refused to hear the case on reason that the case had already been heard. They conveniently left out the fact that the Commissioner ignored the Tax Court ruling. The U.S. Court of Appeals, before Goodwin, Sneed and Reinhardt, Circuit Judges: “Despite the fact that the amount of taxes owed by the taxpayer may well be less than the amount the United States must spend to collect that amount, this is a case in which the excess should be expended to validate once more the legitimacy of federal income tax.”
What would it have been if someone with a big name were done the same as I? I was one of the meek and poor. Just one problem here. The U.S. Court of Appeals also failed to consider that the Commissioner of Internal Revenue ignored the Tax Court order. That’s obstruction of justice. The Supreme Court refused to hear the case. An out-and-out fraud against this out-of-sight-out-of-mind victim of lawless corruption, my congressional representatives were informed. Every so often, they investigate the Commissioner. It’s a game of charades. Alas, the do-good Roosevelts and their accomplices in crime put me on the street–for the good of all.
A third U.S. District Court decided to hear me. The government immediately admitted to the court that the Commissioner made a “mistake” and was willing to return my property with interest. I agreed. The case was closed. The Commissioner then went to my bank and ordered every cent in my account to be impounded—by mistake.
I went to the press with the evidence. The press investigated. The Commissioner said he made a “mistake.” The government of the United States gives itself the right to make limitless mistakes.
Osama bin Laden claimed that the American people were as guilty as their government. Barack Hussein Obama had bin Laden assassinated and dumped in the ocean, denied the right to a trial, denied even a grave. Barack Hussein said Al Qaeda was finished, just before his second election. Shortly afterward, Al Qaeda attacked the American Embassy at Benghazi and killed four Americans, including America’s ambassador. Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, and Barack Hussein claimed it was spontaneous, the result of an amateur video denigrating Islam. They immediately threw the man in jail. Barack Hussein and Hillary are the criminals. Osama bin Laden told the truth about them.
At the present, the United States has a naval force in the Mediterranean joining European naval forces. The plan is to invade Libya in August. With the ISIS game of charades in Syria, with the world economy about to melt down, the time is right to start World War III, declare martial law, and put off the election.
I had lived for 49 years taking the path of least resistance, ruled by external factors. At age 49, my life fell into ruin. They say that necessity is the mother of invention. In spite of the fact that everyone I knew thought I needed psychiatric help, and the federal tax collector called me a “Fifth Amendment freak,” I looked within for answers. Numerologists say what I did represents the pioneer seeking to find his true identity. It is the number 1 step of a 9 step process.
In Luke 17:21, Jesus said the kingdom of God is within you. Having found my true identity, the next step, according to numerology, finding the right mate, the number 2 in numerology, I found the right mate, my fourth, by the way. From the moment we met, I knew that Karen was right for me. There is nothing as great as being spiritually united with a mate.
We have spiritual guides. We don’t communicate by praying to God in heaven. We don’t communicate by the external demands of earthbound authorities. One must connect through the individual’s communication channel. Jesus said, thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. God’s spirit is not in a place! God’s spirit is within you—within your immaterial consciousness! External authority is stealing your sacred self; turning you into a helpless slave!
The spiritual unity one acquires from the right mate is inner-empowering. Karen and I have ventured out of the mundane—lived exciting lives. This, the number three step in our development, transforms us into the beings we were meant to be—and all from within.
The number four step in numerology is stability, a sense of justice and equality. The Roman judge Cicero: “We are born for justice, and right is not the mere arbitrary construction of opinion but an institution of nature.”
I’ve already written on the number 4 step in my development. It takes more than one to bring forth a just society. I did nothing for society, but it changed my life for the better.
My astrologer told me that with my astrological configuration I would be capable of giving logical advice, but would not be one to take center stage. I’m Virgo with Aquarius rising. Aquarius rising says I would grow to be a visionary. I would psychically see the future. I see a time coming when we will look back at this time as the end of the Stone Age.
We are on the threshold of a new age—when poverty and war will forever end. In fact, we are a century behind where we ought to be today, thanks to the powers that be keeping in hiding the latest technology. Yes, desperately clinging to the status quo, today’s world fits exactly what I read in astrology books—the death throes of the Age of Pisces.
Could it not be the dawn of the Age of Aquarius, a time when we become our brother’s keeper? Lo and behold, Donald Trump appears, a man of destiny gifted in the art of the deal. Look at his family. The man is a great leader, ordered for America at this crucial time.
The Trump inspiration comes from Dr. Norman Vincient Peale. My inspiration comes from brain doctor and quantum physicist Dr. Evan Harris Walker. Dr. Walker is accused of attempting to smuggle God into physics. Could it possibly be that physics and God are separate entities? Could it possibly be that the world of the very small is separate from the macrocosmic universe? Round and round the world goes and where she stops no one knows.
Dr. Walker: “It has only been with the advent of quantum theory that we have discovered proof that we exist as something more than pieces of matter….We have found ways to take the measure of consciousness, to study its contact with the functions of the brain, and to discover how the mind, through the agency of the will, affects matter and transcends the limits of space and time.”
“But this trinity of man, mind, and God—of brain consciousness and collective will—is not the full realization of the central features of Judeo-Christian conception of nature….a unity of nature of all things being aspects of the mind….we see the separation that lies between any of us and the rest of reality. A universe that has only matter cannot have consciousness and cannot have will.”
“Some have failed to see any place—any space—where God could reside, and others have failed to see where consciousness could hide within the atoms of matter. But we have found that reality. We have found that hiding place. We have seen that the universe springs from every thought of God and matter from the very existence of mind.”
There is a big change coming. With change comes pain. How many will board the express to the future no one knows. I see us becoming citizens of the intelligence of the universe, our brother’s keeper.
