You’re Fired!

Dear Mr. or Mrs. Ambassador,

You’re fired!

SIGNED:  Donald J. Trump, President-Elect, United States of America

Well, maybe not quite like that, but it would fit in a tweet.  Besides, he told them it was effective January 20, 2017, and he told them on January 5th.  So, he followed recognized and acceptable professional standards and gave them two-week’s notice.

Plus, Mr. Trump flashed his first business acumen in a direction that neither requires nor allows any Congressional involvement.  World chaos?  Boom!  Stay calm everyone, we have a new sheriff in town.  Your new representative will be appointed soon.

Mr. Trump, if I may, a suggestion from one of my disciplines – project management.  When corporations or government entities grow to a certain size, they often implement what are called a “project management office” or PMO in the vernacular.  The definition of a PMO is as follows:

  • project management office, abbreviated to PMO, is a group or department within a business, agency or enterprise that defines and maintains standards for project management within the organization. The PMO strives to standardize and introduce economies of repetition in the execution of projects.

Perfect.  You might want to consider a PMO for the Office of the President that has a Scope of Work (SOW, also project management lingo) to remove all government functions not aligned with the enumerated powers of the federal government as stated in the Constitution of the United States.  For your immediate reference, they are itemized right HERE.

Yes, of course, some of them have changed, some have been expanded, and some are just down right un-Constitutional.  It would be part of the SOW to determine that Constitutionality.  It would also be the charter of the PMO to provide alternative plans for services now provided in Washington that should rightfully be provided by the states.  When that occurs, the PMO’s project for that agency would include a plan for smooth transition to the states.

Yes, sir, I know, a “YUGE” undertaking.  But, a man of your talent and connections could surely find a team of individuals capable of the task.  It would take quite some time from start to finish, so be sure it is constructed to prevent intervention with any annoying changing of guard that is so prevalent in Washington.

Good luck to you, sir, let me know what we can do to assist and thank you for your service,

Respectfully Submitted,

Richard “Doc” Owen, PMP, Ph.D.

Think Global, Act Local!

Remember that phrase?  Nothing could be more appropriate to our political process.  How often do we get caught up in a presidential campaign and ignore the consequences of inaction in the local fights?  All too often, I would submit.

Case in point…the Bexar County, Texas, Sheriff’s election last November and the already evident results started even before the outgoing Sheriff, Susan Pamerleau (Maj. Gen. USAF, Retired) had gracefully left office.  She is being replaced by a typical, barn-burning, scorched-earth Democrat Javier Salazer.  He was “temporarily issued” a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against her just days before the official transition.  “Temporarily issued” because it was rescinded as soon as she filed a response.  But, again in typical liberal fashion, he doubled-down as soon as he took office at one minute after Midnight on New Year’s Eve and issued a No-Access Order for her and nine of her staff members…as if they intended to re-enter the building with malicious intent.  What a joke!

Now you might ask…if she was so great, why did she lose the re-election?  Good question, and I happen to have the answer in three parts…

Part One:  Democrats are known to promote and vote a straight ticket in elections.  No matter the candidate, they follow the party line like sheep to the slaughter.  Republicans, not so much.  Republicans even lament that Democrats do that, all the while not appreciating the power it gives them.  In Bexar County, Texas, in November 2016, the Democrats led straight ticket voting 195,215 to a Republican total of 137,368 from respective total votes of 278,102 to 273,914.  That is 70.2% of Democrats versus 50.15% of Republicans voting a “committed to the party” vote irrespective of the candidate.  Sheriff Pamerleau lost by only 4,188 votes.  Keep reading, I’m not done, yet…

Part Two:  Third party candidates that split the vote.  With respect to the previous paragraph, the Libertarian candidate in the race received 5,428 straight ticket votes.  Those votes alone could have provided the winning margin for Pamerleau who ran as a Republican.  Then, to add insult to injury, the Libertarian candidate took a total of 18,889 votes out of the conservative sector.  Although I certainly respect and often appreciate the movement outside the two party system, there are times when collective activism carries a much stronger message.  Think “Tea Party” results in such a brief period of time (less than 10 years) as compared to Libertarian Party results in forty-five years.  I think I just heard a collective “well, duh!”…

Part Three:  The Republican Party does not support local candidates.  You heard me right.  In some archaic view of local elections, there were no party affiliations.  I know, because I held that view.  It is a righteous view, but not a realistic view.  So, Republicans, you lost that effort a long time ago.  And, by holding on to your pristine view of these local elections the Democrats have taken control of every major metropolitan area in the country, not to mention thousands of others.  Time to get your head out of the sand and wade into this fight.  You are currently a majority in everything else – the Presidency, both houses of Congress, thirty-one state Governors are Republican, and the list goes on…until you get to local elections.  Unfortunate, unbelievable, and if it continues unforgivable.

So, to summarize, the Bexar County Sheriff’s race was handed to a liberal, sanctuary city supporter, two-faced, scorched-earth Democrat for three simple reasons…

  1.  Straight ticket voting habits of Democrats.
  2.  Third party candidates in a race they could not win.
  3.  An inability of Republicans to support party politics locally.

Now that you have some time to think about your next local election, please, give this some thought.  If you agree, spread the word.  If not, good luck in attaining your desired results.

Kerry v. Israel…

I reviewed with interest a recent post of the John Kerry “support” of the United States vote of “present” in the United Nations rebuke of Israel.  In the comments to the article was one response defending Mr. Kerry’s previous lack of integrity when he testified before Congress on atrocities during Viet Nam.  It elicited the following Facebook post on my part and when I was done, I felt it worthy of inclusion on the blog.  You may see the original here.

“_________, if that is your picture, thank you for your service, if not…well you know what should follow. Viet Nam was surely a nasty quagmire, every war is, but that still does not give any one soldier the right to condemn or throw his fellow soldiers under the bus. If you want to see a patriot testify before Congress, please review the questioning of Oliver North…particularly the questions around “were you ordered” and his response of “Sir, of course, I was ordered, I’m a Marine”, but never putting anyone in his line of fire.

It is “soldiers” like John Kerry that have allowed our military to become completely political. Men of integrity and ethics have been banished, limited, and removed ever since Viet Nam. I know, I was there. This is not from a historical perspective, it is from a personal perspective. Today’s military “leadership”, unfortunately, is greatly understaffed in men with honor. Not all, understood, but one weak link is one too many.

So, in the future, as you post in defense of any military weak link, please be aware of the damage you are perpetrating in an already faulty system. The military must not only be allowed to weed out the “john kerry” component, it must be encouraged to do so. Maintaining absolute integrity within the ranks is the only way to shine the light where it belongs…political influence and agendas.

 

Fighting for Our Agenda.

SSB ImageThe Progressives of the Democratic party are already plotting and scheming on how to block our American agenda.  They are sore losers who simply do not give up even when the American People make it clear in which direction they want to go especially if it’s different from their Socialistic schemes.  They cry compromise when their definition of compromise is do things their way or face obstruction and character assassination.  They use intimidation instead of reasoned arguments.  They lie, cheat, mislead, divide and do everything they can to deter responsible Americans from restoring sanity to our Government.  I don’t mean to exclude the Republican Progressives, however, their role is to go along with what the left wants.  They are in effect enablers, too afraid to take the side of those of us who care about our American founding and culture.

Contested or Unusual Presidential Elections – Part 1

Last week on the Doc Owen Show we discussed a little about Contested or Unusual Presidential elections.  There was little time to get across all the information, so we thought we would put this research into several articles.  Below is Part 1 of a series of 6 posts.  We hope you find this information useful.

The first election we will cover is the election of 1800, sometimes called the Prelude to a Duel.

At that time political parties were beginning to form, an unfortunate situation for our Nation when you consider how the dominant political parties are acting today.  George Washington did not run as part of a political party.  He was a trend setter we should have followed.  He also set the precedent of serving two terms.  Honor and virtuosity were characteristics of his leadership.

Trumps 100 Day Plan

Hello Patriots,

Unless you searched the net or watched LevinTV, you may not have seen this.  I am submitting this on behalf of the Doc Owen Show.  It is important information and serves as a starting point of your campaign to keep President Elect Donald Trump to his word.

Many of you are disappointed in Donald Trump because he is not a conservative or not conservative enough.  After you read this we would be like to know what you think of Trumps agenda. Perhaps you have a comment on some of the issues or question them.  Please send us you opinion.

This is from an address Trump gave at a recent Gettysburg gathering.  Enjoy!

These are his words formatted in a way that enables you to read each proposal.

“Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

100 Day Plan

Confession: I’m A Backwards, Closed-Minded Millenial

 

Because not everything can be true and good.

I cannot tell you the number of times that I have been in a conversation with a friend or a stranger on an airplane and the phrase, open-minded, comes up.

“Oh, I grew up Catholic, but I don’t go to church anymore. I believe in God and all, but I am open minded.”

The Founding Fathers are no Longer Relevant?

Progressives/Socialists have been trying  to convince us that the Founding Fathers are irrelevant to today and that the Constitution is a tired old document which does not apply in this day and age.  I, for one, disagree. Continue reading “The Founding Fathers are no Longer Relevant?”

May I Have This Dance?

weasel-1A few days ago I listened to this interview on YourVoice™ Radio.  If you are anything like me you will be outraged.  The interview  was of Special Projects Director of Citizens4Trump Jack Posobiec hosted by  co-host Cari Kelemen on Tuesday.  Use the link below if you wish to listen for yourself. It is a little more than thirteen minutes.

Jack explained in detail EXACTLY what went down with the infamous Trump audio and how it was all just a coup attempt by GOP elites.  

All I can say is WOW!  Not because I am excited but because I am flabbergasted and astonished at the level of infighting, gamesmanship, ploys and tactics that are going on in our Nations Capital, both by Democrats and Republicans.  They should know better than this and should also know that the American people expect more from them than this type of abominable behaviour.

Why do they do this?  I submit that it is because the Washington elite are more interested in serving themselves by holding on to power and control than they are in representing the people and our wishes.  The American people be damned!  I have come to the conclusion that I am not at all represented in Washington.  I dare to say many of you feel the same.

Here’s the story:

The acronym WOW stands for “Weasels of Washington,” the so called Washington “establishment.”

Do you know what weasels do?  They do a dance right before they suck the life out of their prey.  Sound familiar?

I have witnessed this happen when I was a boy at my grandmas house. I spent most of my childhood there helping my grandma with the garden and tending to the livestock.  One day I checked on the chickens, as I usually did and they were fine.  The next day they were all dead and appeared emaciated.  I was very sad and disappointed.  In wonderment, I asked my grandma what happened to our chickens?  Now, I loved and greatly respected granma, so of course I believed anything she said. Here is what she told me:  “they were attacked by weasels that sucked the blood (life) out of them.”  I believed that for the longest time until recently when I learned that weasels may lap the blood but they don’t suck it out.  It was a fairy tale.  I still have no idea what killed those helpless chickens.

weasel-2Nevertheless I will use this fairy tale to portray what I see the Washington elite (the WOWs) are doing to the American people.  They are literally sucking the life out of our great nation and out of its fine citizens all in the name of “we know what is best.”

They have no semblance of what it means to “serve the people.”  They only know how to serve their own survivalist tendencies, just like a weasel does.  They forget that the founders vested political power in the hands of “we the people,” and that we in turn have given our consent to them to represent us.  Instead they are arrogant enough to think that they should rule over us and that they are a special “ruling class” that is unaccountable to us or to anyone for that matter.

Unfortunately, not only do they forget but they have managed to convince a large number of trusting citizens that they are their for them.  (BTW, I do have a bridge for sale). They have managed to do this by being pathological liars and providing us with false stories and perceptions about how hard they work for us.  

Would you join me in shouting shouting“BULLHONKY!”  Yes it is an actual word, better than what I am really thinking.
Just trying to keep it clean.

I hope you are as outraged as I am about this.  Drop us a line to let us know how you feel.  You may reach us at unclebaci@docowenshow.com.

Immigration Insanity: This Federal Judge Just Turned Six States Into Sanctuary States

October 11, 2016/by Daniel Horowitz

If you thought executive amnesty was bad, wait until you get a taste of judicial amnesty. A new order from a federal judge issued a week from last Friday will prevent ICE from placing detainers on many illegal aliens held in local jails in six states. This radical violation of American sovereignty — judicial tyranny on steroids — will have the effect of creating a judicial sanctuary for sanctuary cities and prevent the Obama administration from detaining even the few illegal aliens they are pursuing. You heard that correctly, a federal judge wants to grant de facto amnesty to those even the Obama administration wants to deport!
