go into the month of MAY... hang on for a different type of format for
the Newsletter. I thought we might need some more laughs and smiles
and a friendlier bunch of articles, so we will try it, at least for
part of this month’s Newsletter. Stick with me and please let me know
what you think. Do it some more or just stay with what has worked
over the years.

EXPLANATION THAT I’VE SEEN YET ON WHAT IS GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY:
Dr. Jack Minzey on Civil War in U.S. Today …Jack passed away Sunday, 8
April 2018. Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of
Education at Eastern Michigan University, as well as a prolific
author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education
and the Government role therein.
This is the last of his works: Civil War - How Do Civil Wars
Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't
settle the question through elections because they don't even agree
that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic
issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each
other, but accept the election results, you have a country. When you
stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from
office and overturning the results of an election. We all know
that. But it's not the first time they've done this. The first time a
Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't
really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There's a pattern
What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican
president really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any
election that they don't win . It means they don't believe that
transfers of power in this country are determined by
elections...That's a civil war. There's no shooting. At least not
unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a
charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our
system of government.
This isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other
party. You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the
country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you
consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what
you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship.
only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to
Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's
inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the
White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country
through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal
judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States
can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.
Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not
the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any
part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over
If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do
anything, and I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal
aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is
unlimited. He's a dictator.
But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President
can't do anything. He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien
amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the
White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of
immigration policy. A Republican doesn't even have the 'discretion' to
reverse him. That's how the game is played. That's how our country is
run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular
When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to
enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White
House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a
state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission
. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California
is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries...
The Constitution has something to say about that.
it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left
moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution,
then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This
is what I call a moving dictatorship.
Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding:
Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You
can't serve in, if you're not a member. If you haven't been
indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren't in the club.
And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who
aren't in the club with him.
Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on
them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to
jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down. That's not a
It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out
an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election. It's not a
free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the
opposition. It's not a free country when the media responds to the
other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that
supported him from social media. It's not a free country when all of
the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who
wasn't supposed to win did.
Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between conservative volunteer
government and a leftist Democrat professional government. I hope you
pass this around.

“Steve Mitchell and Coach K”
I've never met you, though you've walked past me many times on a
stretch of beach called Pine Knoll Shores. I didn't want to bother
you, but wish I had known about your gift to Steve Mitchell. His
departure from this earth has offered the story of a life well-lived.
Steve was the man who sat behind you in Duke University's Cameron
Indoor Stadium for the last 37 years and I know you miss him this
a lot in his sixty plus years. He was born with Down syndrome and his
family shrugged off the doctors and took him right home. He was
integrated in an era that made his parents ground breakers; school or
church, Steve was there. I am a special needs mama too and with
parenthood comes advocacy, their forging a path has benefited so many.
You called Steve "a good friend who had some challenges." What a gift
of inclusive language.
story goes that in 1980 the only thing Steve Mitchell wanted for
Christmas was a Duke basketball ticket, not an easy score, but Steve's
brother had a construction company and was hired to renovate the new
coach’s, Mike "Coach K" Krzyzewski, house. He asked you how one might
find a ticket to buy and explained his brother’s Christmas wish.
sit behind me,” you said. Did you know how life changing that gift
The following season, Steve wrote you a letter saying,
“Coach, I know we’re going to have another great year. I was hoping
that I could sit near you again.” You said yes to a family that may
have heard no far more often. He wrote you a letter every year for 37
years and this is the first season that a ticket, reserved for one
Steve Mitchell, isn’t waiting at will call. Steve would collect his
ticket and make his way to his seat behind you (usually with the help
of his favorite usher, Fran), a tradition that was life changing for
his self-confidence, according to his family. You shook his hand
before every game.
you, Coach K.
of special needs kids know that kindness extends far beyond team
affiliation and we know that our team is the best of all. Welcome to
the club. And to Steve? Godspeed, my friend and thank you.
