“Whistleblower,” by Dr. James R. Wining

In 1973 it took a whistleblower by the name of John Dean to bring down President Richard Nixon and forever change the nature and scope of the relations between the Executive and Legislative Branches of government.Some might recall “The Watergate Scandal,” and say it was investigative reporting or some other stroke of luck owing to the eventual disclosures of attorney John Dean. However, most would assuredly agree without John Dean blowing the whistle on the Watergate incident and its susequet cover up the government we enjoy today would lack aggressive oversite from media and from the oversite the different branches of government exercise upon themselves. To maintain a free and republic form of government certain elements of society must be protected. Most likely one of the top elements is a “Government by the people and for the people.” In essence we are saying a government elected by the people. Therefore, free and unabated voting of the legally prescribed citizenry is crucial.

“Does History Repeat,” by Dr. James R. Wining

Its 2021 and why would anyone look back nearly 50 years and think history could repeat. However, let us look back and see if history can repeat it self . Maybe the future is being planned in just the same manner as 1973-1974.  The President in 1973 was Richard Nixon. He was under extreme pressure due to a criminal investigation referred to as “Watergate.” In fact, President Nixon’s ability to perform his duties were in question and his own presidency was plagued with unpopularity and threaten impeachment . Enter his Vice-President Spiro Agnew who provided a political diversion from those pressuring, investigating and exposing his own situation. Vice-President Agnew faced several IRS charges and eventually pleaded guilty to one felony count and resigned from the office of vice-president in1973.  With swift and legal authority President Nixon immediately appointed Gerald Ford the Speaker of the House. Both were Republicans. The basis for replacement is really not as significant as getting rid of an unpopular Vice-President , diverting attention from himself and inviting the public into a  refreshing change. President…

“OVER THERE COULD BE HERE!”

Definitions: Communism-public (Government) control of all means of production Governmental control is totalitarian with no personal freedom. Examples: China, Cuba and Russia Socialism- public (Government) control of the major means of production Governmental control is authoritarian with limited personal freedom Examples: Nicaragua, Vietnam and Algeria Capitalism-private (Personal) control of all means of production Governmental control is Democratic or Republic with private (personal) control. Examples: United States, United Kingdom and Japan Why does the United States promote “Separation of Church & State?.” Clearly the fear of a state run church that leads the people into authoritarianism and eventual totalitarianism. Constraining one so fundamental personal freedom jeopardizes all personal freedoms.  It is now being challenged in the Ukraine and is clearly an eye opener for USA proponents of greater Governmental control. Today the “Body of Christ,” must “Gather, together,” and be the beacon of “Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness.” Otherwise what we see over there will be here!  Dr. James R.

“The Party of Change,” Dr. James R. Wining

In the 1850’s the USA was a deeply divided nation. John Brown was the symbol of Emancipation and human equality. The elitist’s (Super Wealthy) then were the “Robber Baron’s” of the industrializing Northeast and the wealthy “Cotton Plantation Owners,” of the South. Neither seemed to accept this “Change” until John Brown was hung for treason December 2, 1859! The Democrat Party remained neutral about this societal change but not the Republicans’ who nominated Abraham Lincoln, an opponent to slavery in any fashion. Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the USA on November 6, 1860. The Civil War began April 12, 1861 and was our deadliest war. Over 750,000 people or 2% of our population were killed. Today’s elitist’s (Super Wealthy) this time are not in cotton or in manufacturing but in technology. Furthermore, just guess what political party is saying no to these newly framed “Elitists,” the Republican Party again. What are Republicans trying to change? The normal working class Christians (those again seeking human equality) want to raise and live in a safe community for their children…
