The Next POTUS...Father, Your Will Be Done

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

So here we are; as I write this we are about 48 hours out before the polls close here in Palm Beach County, (aka, Corruption County”).  We have been through probably the worst election cycle in our history and it has brought out the worst in some people as well as the best in others.  Friendships have been made and severed, and people have actually died.  

While I think one might not be as bad as the other, in the end, my faith and hope lies in neither candidate.  The history of mankind is and has always been temporary, and not at all what our Heavenly Father ever had in mind.  I recognize that His ultimate plan is unfolding right before the eyes of those of us who understand His Word and can see prophecy being fulfilled daily, and I therefore continue to put my trust and faith in Him.

A huge part of my thinking is that the USA is not present at “the end” in my understanding from my studies of “end times” prophecy; certainly not as a major player on the world stage. Therefore, while I believe we are very near “the end,” I cannot predict what His specific timetable is, and it boils down to this in my thinking.  

The secular side of me hopes and thinks we are very likely about to witness the biggest political upset in the history of the United States with a Trump landslide, or at very least a strong and uncontestable win, which would suggest to me that He is giving us a final chance to come to repentance because with a Trump presidency, we would still be able to enjoy many of the freedoms we would steadily be denied under a Clinton presidency.  However, the side of me that views things from a Biblical perspective and thinks He could be about fed up with us believes that we might be facing final judgement as a nation, because a Clinton presidency would be the end of us.

By the way, my reasoning for those statements is not difficult.  If Mr. Trump should win, we will hold on to a glimmer of hope that perhaps we can remain a viable nation and retain our freedoms long enough to repent as mentioned above.  Maybe some of the some of the big issues such as the deficit and our weakened military would improve; maybe we would regain the respect of our allies and enemies; maybe our entire judiciary would not completely fall to the left.  We have a huge mess, and I think Mr. Trump is the only one up to the task of starting the fix, if it’s possible at all. 

On the other hand, if Hillary Clinton should succeed in cheating her way to victory, (which is the only way she wins) our military would become a complete shambles, our sovereignty would be diminished and we will fall under the thumb of our enemies via submission to the UN in her first term.  Our borders will be blown wide open and she would welcome hundreds of thousands of unvetted enemies with open arms, allowing them unrestrained ability to commit whatever jihad mayhem they have in mind, all while restricting our ability to defend ourselves by appointing judges who would diminish or outright eliminate our 2nd Amendment rights and then the rest of the Bill of Rights.  Already, she has loudly voiced that “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”  Um, excuse me, but that sounds a lot like forcing the will of the state on the church.  Additionally, she has demonstrated a callous lack of regard for our men and women in uniform and has been criminally negligent in the handling of proprietary information critical to the security of this nation.

Well, there you have it.  A very short discussion of how and why I don’t trust the systems of men, but I do trust Him, and whatever He has decided will come to pass.  

In the meantime, I’m doing my part and casting my vote for Donald J. Trump.

Four Minutes To Launch, Years Of Aiding The Enemy…

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

The final debate of the 2016 Presidential Cycle on Wednesday can be summed up in one brief statement…Hillary Clinton has yet again aided and abetted the enemies of our country.

In case you missed it or haven’t heard by now, she casually mentioned that our nuclear response time is four minutes.  To be perfectly honest, I don’t know whether the real number is something different, or the actual number she threw out; but that isn’t the point.  The real important thing is that she has a bad habit of being very careless and casual where it regards proprietary information surrounding the security of this nation.  

You may recall that due to the egregious orchestration and collaboration of the DOJ and an obviously very corrupt FBI director by the name of James Comey, her husband and others, she recently skated being charged criminally for her handling of classified emails on unsecured servers.

Back to her “four minute” remark though; it reminded me of when on May 3, 2011, that babbling old fool “Uncle Joe,” (aka VPOTUS Joe Biden) decided to tell the whole world and our enemies that our Seal Team 6 was the unit that took down OBL, which immediately painted a huge target not only on them, but also on the individual members of their families back home.  By the way, that very real threat still exists to this day, regardless of the fact that that unit was sacrificed and murdered by our government just over three months later in a feeble attempt to make it look like a “lucky” shot from the ground during the Extortion 17 incident.

Before you get your underwear all bunched up about that last statement; consider if you will just some of the facts surrounding the downing of Extortion 17.  Not only was no suppressive fire laid down when it was known that the area of the drop was a beehive of enemy activity, we had a gunship flying above and the suppressive fire was DENIED; let me say that again, it was DENIED..! The unarmed Chinook used that evening was not the normal aircraft used for such a deployment; all of our boys assigned to that mission were on the one single chopper while another was flying empty nearby; there were several very questionable Afghanis on board Extortion 17 that absolutely should not have been; for some reason, the chopper hovered above the area way longer than it should have allowing for precise aim from the ground.  Let’s not forget that the initial investigation showed that several of our men had been shot; then an apparent mass cremation took place to destroy that evidence and thus any ability for further investigation.  

The only reason I can conjure up for allowing this ambush is uglier than the ambush itself; the Obama administration was likely put under immense pressure from countries friendly with OBL to avenge him, and their wish was granted.  Thanks “uncle joe” for getting our people and their families set up like sitting ducks.  Maybe you and Hillary and a lot of others have forgotten that “loose lips sink ships.”  

Not to mention that the whole element of surprise idea of telling our enemies when we're going to bomb, attack, and then withdraw is more insanity from the left that has caused countless lives on both sides, but I digress.

By the way, who do you suppose was Secretary of State during the Extortion 17 debacle…?  The same ruthless, power mad woman who sat idly by up to and during the massacre of our people in Benghazi just over a year later, and then she lied to the faces of the families of those lost by trying to blame it on a video that she KNEW had nothing at all to do with it.  She and Joe Biden should both still be arrested for these incidents; they weren’t just mistakes, they were high crimes.  

Before you stop reading to the end because you figure I’m some sort of hater, consider that every man on Extortion 17 and in Benghazi had a name; they had families and friends back home who loved them, they had children who will never get to play catch, go fishing or hunting, have a tear wiped from their face by a loving dad, walked down the aisle on their wedding day, and a million other things they would have been able to do if their dad hadn’t been wasted directly due to the political ambition of a few very corrupt individuals at the very highest levels of our government. 

So yeah, telling the world about our “four minute” nuclear response time, the Extortion 17 ambush, four dead in Benghazi, untold thousands of lost emails; those are just some of examples of her dirty dealings involving national security.  

What will she say or do next to further weaken us besides importing hundreds of thousands of “refugees;” many of whom will commit horrific acts of carnage...?  This isn’t some vast “right wing conspiracy,” this is just a snapshot of her track record and what she plans.

Can anyone who supports her please explain to me how you can turn a blind eye to her deceit, lies, corruption, and trail of dead Americans…?!

Do you really feel she can be trusted to suddenly become less careless with our national security..?!

Finally, take a good long time and think about this final question; will you really trust her with the lives of you and your families..?!

Do Black Lives Really Matter...?

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

It was just like any other morning in any other police department, in any town across America.  Outside the walls of the station, the general citizenry were already going about their daily business of working, going to school, shopping, or any one of countless activities that keep people busy.

Of course what most people are not aware of is the deliberate and unholy plotting and daily reminders to all police officers starting their shifts that they are to target and randomly kill unsuspecting minorities during routine enforcement activities, especially black men, whether they are armed or not.  It does not matter if the officer is male or female, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, or whatever; the bottom line is to find a minority and kill them with the ease of playing “whack a mole.” 

Conversely, in countless black neighborhoods across this great land, black “leaders” must be holding similar meetings which warn everyone about these instructions and tell their members that if and when confronted by a police officer, they are to ignore all orders given by said officer and attempt to gain the upper hand, because they haven’t done anything wrong and have only been detained because they are black.  Therefore when told to keep hands in the air, such things as reaching into windows and ones’ pockets are acceptable behavior.  Grabbing for a LEO’s gun is also okay since he or she will use it on you if you don’t.  Also, and very likely the most important thing, always, always be combative during the initial interaction with any officer; give them as much foul language laced back talk as you can.  Such things as moving quickly, swinging your arms all over, getting out of cars when ordered not to are necessary because since this interaction is going to get very bad anyway, it is prudent to get down to the nitty gritty as quickly as possible.  After all, if we do have drugs or weapons, what business is it of the “po po” anyway…?!  If they mind their own business, we will mind ours; except that since “po po” has obviously declared open season on us, we should band together in the early evening to loot the businesses of our neighbors, destroy everything in sight, and if possible, absolutely kill a random police officer to even the score as much as possible.

While those types of meetings are going on, apparently, given the relatively few times we hear of a fatal interaction between a white person and a LEO, white community leaders must be instructing their members to actually obey the orders of police officers and behave opposite of what is being taught in those black neighborhoods described above.  

Okay, cool your jets and listen to some reality.

Fifteen Years Ago The World Changed Forever...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

For me and many others, tomorrow, September 11, 2016 will recall the horror of the day fifteen years ago when nineteen Islamic terrorists filled with hate and bloodlust flew suicide missions at the behest of their Al Queda leader into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a failed attempt that crashed into a remote field in Pennsylvania.

For any American old enough for cognizant memory at the time, it is a day and a moment one cannot forget; when time stood still and we were all witness to the very depths of evil unfolding right in front of us in real time on the news media everywhere.  

Around the country, and in a lot of places around the world, buildings started to immediately close down and businesses sent employees home with the admonition to be careful and safe.  Schools also closed as frantic parents rushed to pick up their children to hold them and perhaps try to explain the madness they were seeing and hearing about.  No one knew what else might be coming, the entire Air Traffic Control function in the US shut down and as a result, much of the other world air traffic ground to a screeching halt.  All planes in the air within or approaching US airspace; be they commercial or private, were ordered to land at the nearest airport and wait for the clearance that would ultimately take many days.  The skies completely emptied and except for the military, no planes could arrive or depart from any airport anywhere.  Any pilot that might have attempted to ignore that order would have certainly been rightly subject to being shot down.  

I was in my office just south of Boston when the first plane hit and I remember thinking that maybe it was some sort of freak accident reminiscent of the time a plane hit the Empire State Building.  By the time I rationalized my thinking to the weather conditions present during that incident and the time of day when it occurred against the picture perfect day we were having, the second plane struck, and I realized like the rest of America that we were under attack and at war.  Certainly, whoever did it was at war with us.  I called home to wake up my son, explained that we were at war, and to turn on the television.

During the rest of the day, we all witnessed people jumping to their deaths rather than face the flames and having no way out.  Confusion reigned and it seemed that all at once we were hearing about other planes on the way to other places, we watched the towers fall, heard the subsequent recordings of the NYFD and NYPD calls of which many would become last words.  We heard the eerie sound of all the downed firefighter alarms going off; and we didn’t even have a moment to catch our breath before the third plane crashed into the Pentagon, with yet another not responding and being tracked. 

New York area hospitals geared up expecting countless injuries and deaths.  In the end, the death toll was just shy of 3000 and the injured, while numerous, were not as many as initially expected; which many owed to the relatively early hour of the attacks.  Had the planes struck the WTC perhaps even a half hour or so later, the death and injury toll would likely have been exponentially more, as many more would have reported for work by then.

In the ensuing days, weeks, and months after the attack, we watched as the area, which was treated as a crime scene, was sifted through bit by bit in the search for remains of the deceased and parts of the planes.  

We watched as previous strangers worked together, hand to hand, to clean up the often putrid mess, and we heard the usual endless bloviating of politicians as to the remedy.  To this day, the death toll related to this cowardly attack rises.  Every time I hear of a firefighter, police officer, or civilian finally succumbing to maladies contracted as a result of that day, I cannot help but get very choked up with the now familiar deeply painful emotion of that day.

As I reflect on what has taken place since then, it is stunning to me that only seven years after these attacks we elected a man to the highest office in the land whose very name sounds like one of the hijackers.  Not only that, but true to form, he has treasonously behaved in a manner which has directly aided and abetted the sort of people who committed the act since the day he took office.  

Sadly, with only a matter of weeks away from the most important, and depending upon the outcome, quite possibly the final election in our nation’s history; an election that will decide the fate and future of America, we are dangerously close to continuing this legacy of treason in the person of Hillary Clinton.

While no leader can completely protect us from attack, we will collectively rise to a new level of insanity if we choose a woman who has already demonstrated a total lack of respect for our military and police, has treated our classified secrets with gross criminal negligence, turned her back on our people in Benghazi, and with open arms would import hundreds of thousands of the same people who attacked us into our midst. 

We have a clear choice America.  We maybe survive or we completely collapse in November.

Concerning Gary Johnson...

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

I know a guy named Ryan, it isn’t necessary to use his last name because this is not so much directed at him as it is an open letter to everyone who, like him, is considering casting a vote for Gary Johnson.  

Look, all you “Ryans,” I get it; you can’t stand the other two candidates so I’ll only elaborate a little on each of them because you already know why you can’t stand them.  However, you are too smart not to recognize that one of them IS going to be the next POTUS.  

Also please consider that one of them has been on a major crime spree for decades and has been virtually raping our system of government; she represents everything that is wrong about America and everything that can and will get worse about America.  

Under her presidency, the entire judicial system would face an irreversible swing to the left; because it isn’t just the SCOTUS that would be affected, it is all the other Federal Judgeships she would appoint.  The radical legislating from the bench would far outlive her presidency and her life, and the US Constitution would be reduced to a no longer relevant, quaint old document.

Under her presidency, all of the people, foreign and domestic, that she has taken donations from through her foundation would be given free rein to do as they please.

Under her presidency, our military will complete its already rapid decline, our outrageous ROE would continue to get our men and women in uniform killed, our cities will become havens for countless thousands of the very people, disguised as “refugees” who want to do us great harm.  

Under her presidency, with the help of her judicial appointments, your right and ability to protect yourself from those “refugees” and other criminals who won’t obey her anti-gun agenda could very well be stripped away.  And I can imagine a “Clinton America” where our police would themselves be disarmed. 

Under her presidency, her egregious carelessness as witnessed by her national security damaging handling of emails so secret that they cannot even be presented to the open Congressional panel investigating her, will find us at the mercy of enemies who are already circling like vultures.  Make no mistake, she put all of the “Ryans,” and all of their children and families in grave danger; grave danger that has yet to really be manifested by enemies who have access to what was contained in those emails, and they are merely waiting for the right moment and opportunity to strike.     

Under her presidency, all of the failed policies of the current administration and more will not only continue, they will be expanded.

Under her presidency, taxes would increase to unparralelled levels, and the middle class, made up of a lot of “Ryans” would completely disappear. 

I could go on and on, but I think you all get the picture. 

On the other hand we have a very successful, if narcissistic, sometimes brash businessman who tells it like it is whether the listener and the “party” like it or not.

Under his presidency, the hands of our military will be untied and our enemies will once again think twice before attacking us.

Under his presidency, our borders will become much less porous; not overnight, but rapidly and permanently.

Under his presidency, the rule of law will return and criminals, very likely including people like his opponent, will be prosecuted.
