Make America Great Again

In a previous article titled “Left And Right” I discussed that Left or Right are unable to work on their own. Donald Trump has been our Elected President since 2016 and has fought diversity in every decision that he has made. He has fought the Never Trumpers, Democratic Party, Congress, The Senate and everyone that is unable to adapt to change. President Trump is the only President that I recall without support from his own party. The American People have always supported The Office of the President of the United States until our current president. We the People of the United States have always excepted the laws passed by our elected officials. Left and Right have always worked together (although not unanimously). Today we find that unemployment is the lowest in Decades and companies are bringing work and products back to America.

I understand diversity. I’m Left Handed and I have to adapt to using almost everything that I use daily. Power tools, wrenches, cooking utensils, and so on. Every day I adapt to be able to use the tools and equipment available to me for accomplishing even the smallest of tasks. Those of us that are not like the majority make adjustments to compensate for the tools we have available to us to complete the task.

The United States is turning from “We The People” to “Me The People”. There is no such thing as “We The People” anymore.

Our elected officials have lost sight of the fact that they were elected by the people, whether it be local, state or national. Once elected it seems that most of our elected officials have the mindset of I. Everything that they do is for their best interest, not the best interest of those that elected them. It has become my understanding that we not longer have Political Parties, we have groups of people working in different directions. Just like Left and Right, we need to learn to work together and adapt to the ideas and thoughts of others. To keep America Great we need to change our mindset and learn to work together. Forget about those with the loudest voice and think about what is being said. We then need to ask ourselves one question. Is this best for the country or best for me.

Everyone has their own thoughts, but if we are unable to adapt or adjust our thought process how can we become the Great America of the past? Do we want to become a flock of sheep and follow the leader or do we want to think about the big picture and make our choices, thinking to ourselves, What is best for our country? What needs to be done to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN?

Think about it folks. What do we want? Do we want a country of sheep or do we want a country that is great?

CigarBox – Luby’s

Sat, 05/25/2019 - 3:58am

Ray left the little west Texas town shortly after he talked to June, and drove to Killeen some four hundred miles distant arriving late that night. Killeen sits in a flat area of the state with nothing to really attract anyone there except a sprawling army base called Fort Hood. With the influx of so many soldiers the town hosts scores of apartment houses. They fell into various stages of disrepair. The usual life span for one of these buildings was about forty-two years, with them ending up gutted and vacant. This is where Ray’s theory came in. He believed that if you could renovate, or even rebuild, then it was far better than new construction at new rates and prices. He had sent proposals all over the state to various rental agencies and one in Killeen had answered him. They weighed his proposal in the balance, and, like he, figured it may be better to renovate than sell and build all over again. Ray had contracted to help rebuild an apartment complex there. His crew of five followed behind him with all of the equipment that Claudette had assisted him in purchasing. The equipment would help him
rebuild walls, set more concrete, just about anything just short of actually building a building from the foundation up. In time, he’d hoped to have a “dozer” and other heavy equipment required for more extensive jobs, but for now he’d get by and get his feet firmly on the ground. He’d done jobs like this before, but it was always at someone else’s employ. Now he was the contractor, and he ran the show.

Ray’s license was no good in Killeen, but his experience was, and he knew how to do many different things. Putting up homes in the Bend, with its west Texas flair had schooled him in many areas, and that all came in handy now. He spent the weekend sizing up the job, and Monday he commenced. This job had to be completed with all possible dispatch because the company was taking “down time” all the time the crew was doing the rebuild. Meanwhile the manager, assistant manager, and the regular maintenance men were maintained on salary, albeit the maintenance men were used with the rebuild, and they needed to get back to productive work.

All that week he progressed from apartment to apartment. The manager of the complex was amazed at Ray’s expertise even to the point of offering him a job as maintenance foreman when the rebuild was through. Ray politely declined, saying that he preferred to live in west Texas and work contract labor jobs that fed him, and his family, and he was able to come and go as he pleased. Inwardly he hoped that this new venture would push on to become something larger for him, and he still hoped to rope Claudette in as a partner thereby funding his ideas of rebuilds, or even construction later down the path. Prison had left its mark on Ray, and he hated to be what he considered to be “tied down,” and a regular job would do that. Add to this the fact that he made a lot more money than any “maintenance foreman” and didn’t want to trade that for any false security that a “steady” job had to offer.

The week progressed and Ray began to pull ahead of his original schedule. One morning the manager greeted him as he showed up at his usual seven-thirty sharp, coffee cup in hand and tool belt slung over his shoulder.

“What are you doing for lunch today?”

“Oh, I was thinking about one of them fancy sandwiches ya’ll got over on the highway.”

The lady smiled and said, “Well today is boss’s day, and since I’m your boss I’m taking you out to lunch. You’ll eat a plate lunch today. You keep getting any thinner and you’ll blow away in this wind.”

Normally Ray would not go to a restaurant with any lady except his wife, but since he was far from home, and it was only lunch and not dinner he took her up on the offer. He worked the rest of the morning at his usual clip, but took off a few minutes before lunch so he could go to the restroom and clean up so he would be more presentable to the lady he would eat with. He removed his shirt and took a “spit” bath and after sniffing beneath his arms, he made his way to the car where the manager, and her assistant manager were waiting. Soon, the two ladies and Ray were on their way to a cafeteria.

They arrived about eleven forty-five and the line was not as long as they expected, but it was “boss’s day” so there were more than a few finely dressed men and women eating today. Ray checked out the fare and chose a chicken fried steak, broccoli with cheese, and mashed potatoes. They went to the rear of the cafeteria and commenced to eat.

As he ate, his meat Ray noticed a pickup truck sitting in front of the building. The windows went all the way down so he could see that the man had parked but not turned off the engine by the exhaust still coming out the rear pipe. Ray was a man of instinct so he kept his eye on the man. He noticed that the man was “seething,” and staring into the building. He thought the guy must be upset about something, but just kept looking up at him off and on as he ate his meal.

“How much longer do you think it will be before we’ll be able to rent apartments, Ray,” the manager asked?

Taking his eyes off the truck for a moment Ray replied, “No more than three more weeks. The work’s going faster than I expected, and you’ll be able to let some of the places within three weeks from now. Then we can work our way around to the other areas. That way the company can start to get back some of the money it’s spending on the rebuild.”

The lady took a bite, and continued, “Now, just what do I have to do to convince you to stay on here after the rebuild?”

Ray smiled, “Ma’am, I’ve been in west Texas so long I got sand in my lungs. If I didn’t have them mountains, and deserts I’d get all claustrophobic. Besides that, I owe my relative a bit of money on this venture, and she’d be powerful disappointed if I was to just take a job and give up on my dream.”

“And what is your dream, Ray?”

He took a bite of his chicken fried steak and said, “I want to repair apartments all over the state. I think I have something to offer people, and ways to save them money on these things. I only got a crew of five now, but in a year from now I’ll have a crew of ten, or even twenty, and we’ll be repairing complexes as far away as Austin, or Houston.”

“A man of your talents could be running maintenance for several complexes.”

“A man of my talents could never punch a clock ma’am. You’d hate me. I need to work as I see fit. Also, I need that west Texas desert. I couldn’t live here. It’s too close! Your air is wet. Can’t breathe here!”

Before he could take his next bite there was a loud crash from the front window. Ray looked up to see that the truck was now inside the establishment, resting on a table and the man was crawling out of it firing a gun at a man and screaming, “Well, was it worth it?”

Everyone in the cafeteria froze and watched the horrific scene unfold. When the first man was shot Ray thought, almost in amusement, “Well, that’s one wife that guy shouldn’t have messed with.” In west Texas a man would shoot another man over infidelity at the drop of a hat, so the driver of the truck shooting a man at a table he’d just run over and screaming, “Was is worth it,” fit right into Ray’s world view.

Then the man looked around at all the people some sitting, some standing at their tables. One man rose and began to wipe his mouth with a napkin. The shooter raised the automatic weapon and fired a series of shots. The man with the handkerchief fell, and the shooter yelled yet again, “Well? Was it worth it?”

Now pandemonium reigned! People dove beneath tables, not daring to move, realizing that something was very wrong with this scene. Ray grabbed the two ladies by their arms and pulled them under the table where they sat.

“Stay down, and stay quiet.” Suddenly the two ladies saw strength and authority in his eyes. He wasn’t just a little man in a floppy hat any more. Ray looked for a weapon; any weapon, but he could see none. He knew that if the man would just come close enough he could break his neck. In prison he’d seen men get “Jack-Macked,” where a convict would put a can of Jack Mackerel in a sock and hit another man in the head until he was dead. But he had no sock, and no can here. He had to bide his time. He watched the man progress toward a table. At the same time he looked around again for a weapon, anything he could use to take the man down. All he found was a butter knife, but that would do if the man should come close. Ray was no fool. This man had not one but two automatic pistols. Still, if he would just come near Ray knew he could push the butter knife up under his chin and into the brain case. The shooter walked over to the nearest table.

Looking at a lady and her mother at the table where he had just shot the man who had been standing wiping his mouth with the handkerchief he said, “Well? Was it,” and shot the older woman in the face. She fell back and didn’t move at all. He then drew a bead on the younger woman. She cried out, and put her arm in front of her face. The gun went off. The bullet struck her forearm, and as it traveled along the muscle the force slammed her arm into her face, spattering blood, and knocking her unconscious. The man bent over her and she wasn’t moving, her face covered with blood. Looking around at the frightened stares the shooter yelled, “Take a look at what Bell County has done to me!” He moved to the next table.
Reaching under it he grabbed one lady by her ankle and pulled her out into the floor. As she quietly whimpered, “No, please, not me, please,” he shot her once in the forehead. She stopped crying and moving. He looked at another table where a woman, her mother and child were.
He walked over to it and looked at the younger woman, holding her baby and asked, “Is this your child?”

“Yes, it is.”

Motioning with the pistol he told her, “You can go.”

As she ran for the door, she heard the shot that killed her mother. Ray waited for the shooter to come near him. He grieved for the people who’d already died, but he couldn’t help that. This was not the first time he’d been in a tight fix and he remembered the old prison rule, “The main thing is not to panic!” He figured he could drive the butter knife up through his chin and into his brain. About that time, a Mexican man of about seventy years ran for the killer yelling, “Someone’s got to do something!” The shooter casually shot him in the chest and he fell at his feet. Walking over to the table where the man had come from he noticed that the younger woman who had been
there had run, and the older woman was staring at her husband.

“Is that your husband?”

The old woman nodded with tears in her eyes, not taking them off her dead husband.

“Then you need to be with him.”

The man drew a bead on her head, and as she crossed herself, the shot rang out and the old woman fell over backwards. There was a crash from the rear of the restaurant and a man broke through the rear window, stopped, turned and began to pull people to safety.

Then the shooter came to Ray’s table. Before Ray could move, he grabbed the assistant manager and fired a single shot. The body convulsed violently. Then he shot the manager. Ray saw the lady fall, but for some reason the bullet had not hit her in the head, but instead hit her in the upper shoulder. The shooter looked at Ray and asked, “What are you looking at?”

Ray stared at him coldly and said in a very calm west Texas drawl, “Not very fucking much!”

Looking at the assistant manager, the shooter said, “She don’t look too bad, here’s another one,” and took aim.

Ray looked at the fallen woman. The gun was aimed squarely at her head. Time had run out for the effort to kill the shooter. His finger tensed on the trigger. Then, suddenly Ray saw another man appear. His friend Juan stepped out of thin air.

“Come here,” he motioned to Ray, “You can’t stay here any longer my friend.”


“It’s your time, old friend. I can’t control this man’s destiny, but I can help you. You’ve had a life of depravity. Save this woman on the floor. Throw yourself over her and take the bullet for her.”

“Why me?”

“Because, amigo, there is no one else. You must do it. There are many things you do not understand, but you will in time.”

Ray looked at the wounded lady on the floor. He looked up at the killer and then back at Juan. Then, slowly, deliberately, he lay across the lady.

“What do you know, a hero,” the shooter said, and put one bullet in the back of Ray’s head. Satisfied with his work at that table he moved onto the next one. Working his way around the room, killing, reloading, and killing again until the police broke into the room and began to shoot at him. He ran back to the restroom. Turning to reload again he saw the old Indian, Juan standing there staring at him.”

“What are you looking at old man?”

“I am looking at a dead man.” Juan extended his arm and brought his hand together as a fist and then forced it down, the killer’s body crumbling to the floor in sync as he did so. Then, walking over to him he said, “Give me your gun.” The man gave up the pistol like a little child. Juan took deliberate aim at the man’s head and he cowered and tried to cover his head with his left hand. Juan put one bullet through his wrist and head, lay the gun beside his still twitching body and then disappeared in a puff of smoke.

National Popular Vote

Fri, 05/24/2019 - 7:03am

National Popular Vote

Here we go again folks. Not only do we have Illegal Immigration, Sanctuary Cities, Criminals walking the streets and Public Officials ignoring the laws that have been drafted and passed by our elected officials we now have cities and states with the largest populations pushing for a National Popular Vote (NPV).

This policy sounds good on paper, but in my opinion enables approximately one third of the country to control the election of the President Of The United States (POTUS).

Democrats are still under the illusion that Hillary Clinton is our elected POTUS. Can you imagine how our country would be today if this was so? I believe that the unemployment rate would be over 40%, Our borders would be completely open, Crime would be rampant and Taxes would be above 50% to support free Health Care, Free Food and Free Housing. We would no longer have a Middle Class. Everyone would be Affluent or Poor.

Those trying to get the NPV are afraid to try to change the Electoral College by amending the Constitution because the numbers are not high enough.

If any change was made, I think that once the votes are tallied, each state should be given one vote according to the vote tally of the state. Forget the fact that lower population states have a few votes and the higher population states have many. 270 is the magic number and some of the states have under 10. Some of the larger population states even split the votes.

I have always supported Our Elected Officials (even if I didn’t vote for the winner) and try to follow the laws.

We in America have better things to do than to complain about how things are without doing anything to try to repair the problem. I admit that the Electoral College is not perfect but it’s what we have and we have procedures in place to change policies and laws to better protect and support our Citizens.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and …”

Legal Definition of treason. : the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war specifically : the act of levying war against the United States or adhering to or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance.

It has become fashionable among Democrats to yell “impeach” at our President. But, another by world of the radical left is “treason!” It’s treason because he met with Putin. It’s treason because he wants to build a wall. It’s treason because he wears a MAGA hat. No! Treason is spelled out in detail above. When a congresswoman outlines supplanting the constitution with some code of ethics from a foreign nation that is TREASON. Turning against the very constitution she shore to protect and defend is treason.

Now, she will try to say that she’s being “inclusive.” My, my, my. Why didn’t Abraham Lincoln do that in 1861. If he’d had only been inclusive, we could have avoided that whole thing, and we’d still have slaves. You know he didn’t do that because like Maxine Waters, the rulers of the south broke their oath to the constitution when they seceded and went to war against the legal constitutional government of the United States of America.

Maxine Waters should be impeached for treason! Then arrested and jailed! It is incredible that she can make statements like this and walk around free. But then, it IS California. And don’t be jellyfish about it! Sharia Law is not compatible with the United States Constitution, American culture, or even the Mormon Church.

MAGA And The Health Care Crisis

Thu, 05/23/2019 - 6:55am

For years I’ve been saying there is a big difference between the Democrats of old and the young socialist democrats of today. While you may have had a few idiots take advantage of you for being a Democrat, it is outweighed by the daily occurrences of these young people who go stark raving mad at the sight of a Trump hat.

Now let me address one more issue. You say there are 4 million people who don’t have insurance. 4 million out of a population of 327 million, that’s 0.122 percent of the population, not 1 percent but 0.122 percent of the population. Most of these people before Obamacare, while they didn’t have health care, did in fact have better care than most people in other countries. You see our emergency rooms were crowded with these people every day and twice as many on the weekend. Before Obamacare, these emergency rooms could not turn these people away. After Obamacare, there are places I can’t even go now and I have insurance. While I understand we had a problem. we were in better shape medical wise before everyone was mandated insurance. After the mandate, my Premiums went up, my deductibles sky rocketed, and my out of pocket expenses sky rocketed. Before Obamacare, my prescriptions were all paid for, after Obamacare, the insurance company doesn’t even want to talk about coverage of certain medications.

So we were mandated to have this government insurance as a whole, when less than 1% of 1% of the people had no insurance. Yeah some of us are pissed at the Obama years, damn right we are.

Pastor Pete Delivers Another Homily

Wed, 05/22/2019 - 11:33am

The Opposition Media and other leftist cultural arbiters have finally found a ‘Christian’ presidential candidate with whom they are not embarrassed to be seen in public. This religious token is Pete Buttigieg whose day job is Mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

It’s not that these leftist stenographers posing as journalists have become more open to the Christian message. They’re as ignorant of the Bible and elementary Christian beliefs as they’ve always been. Reading an OpMedia journo’s take on basic theology is like listening to Ann Coulter discuss quinceañera preparations with Vicente Fox.

That doesn’t really matter though, for as the Atlantic says, “Democrats who are drawn to him are embracing him not because of his faith but because of his liberalism. They’re willing to indulge the former so long as it advances the latter. For many Democrats, faith is an instrumentality.” In Buttigieg’s case the instrumentality is part of his niche marking effort.

As CNN described his appearance at its town hall, “Pete Buttigieg opened up about his faith Monday night, expressing confidence that he will be able to unite many different groups of people because ‘God does not have a political party.’”

I predict a sweep of Unitarians, dissident Methodists, squishy Presbyterians and his own heretical Episcopalians.

And there’s Pastor Pete’s problem. He’s a Burger King Christian who wants to have the Bible his way. Pete’s another mainline Protestant who failed to realize as his church became more ‘relevant’ the membership became more absent.

Buttigieg won’t appeal to any church attendee who’s not already voting Democrat. The portions of his bio that are so appealing to the left are what disqualify him with believers. Pastor Pete is an alphabet apostate who is married to a man.

The Godless media can’t understand what all the fuss is about. Trump is a serial adulterer who refuses to turn the other cheek and has never bought into the theory of a kind word turns away wrath — while Pastor Pete is a low–key Rhodes Scholar who talks about compassion and never talks about cheating on his husband.

So, what’s not to like?

Buttigieg theology for starters. During the town hall, he offered to meet those close–minded bigots who think marriage is one–man–one–woman halfway when he opined, “I get that one of the things about Scripture is different people see different things in it.”

I would go so far to say people who are different might try to soft–pedal or ignore inconvenient Scripture, but that’s my limit. The Bible isn’t a Magic 8–ball providing enigmatic answers when shaken. The centuries old theological basis for sex and marriage is not up for grabs.

Pastor Pete doesn’t even like to use the ‘C’ word. On CNN he was a “person of faith” who told the audience, “And part of God’s love is experienced, according to my faith tradition, is in the way that we support one another and, in particular, support the least among us.”

A “faith tradition” is Baptists refusing to dance or Lutheran’s strange attachment to hot dish dinners. The clear prohibition against homosexuality and limiting marriage to one man and one woman is a foundational belief, not a “tradition.”

My advice is to keep that bit of self–righteous boasting about “the least” in mind when Buttigieg finally releases his tax returns. If he’s part of the hypocritical one–percent–to–charity club Pastor Pete is going to have to explain why he leaves the collection plate empty.

Buttigieg also lines up with the rest of the Democrats on the wrong side of the second great moral issue that has faced this country, abortion.

Here he’s biblical, but only in the sense he’s channeling Pontius Pilate. On Meet the Press Pastor Pete just washed his hands, “But in my view, [abortion] is a question that is almost unknowable. This is a moral question that’s not going to be settled by science.”

Buttigieg is just as relentless in harvesting the souls of the unborn as is the governor of Virginia, Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam. I would venture that most of his supporters on the left like him in spite of his diluted ‘Christianity.’

An authentic Christian writer named Rod Dreher has looked at Pastor Pete and devised an excellent question that will really test the depth of Buttigieg’s belief in the Christ of the Bible, “I hope some journalist asks Buttigieg to talk about an instance in which his faith caused him to break with the progressive consensus in a meaningful way.”

In the unlikely event it happens, I predict the articulate Pastor Pete will suddenly fall silent.

Still Crazy After All These Years

Wed, 05/22/2019 - 4:57am

Twitter locked Heritage Foundation Media Director Greg Scott out of his account Thursday over a tweet he wrote criticizing men who identify as women and compete in women’s sports.

Scott was notified Thursday that his tweet noting the biological differences between the sexes violated Twitter rules against “hateful conduct,” and his account had been suspended.

The tweet that caused Scott’s suspension was in reference to a biological male athlete who was banned from competing in a women’s powerlifting competition.

“He is not ‘stuck on the sidelines,’” Scott wrote. “The whole ‘I was astonished’ act is tired and dishonest. If any competitive sport highlights the differences [between] men & women that EVERYONE KNOWS ARE REAL, it is powerlifting.”

The suspension came less than a week after Twitter apologized to Ph.D. psychologist and adjunct professor at the University of Toronto Ray Blanchard, who researches gender identities and sexual orientation, for suspending his account over a tweet outlining his position on transgender people.

He called transgenderism a “mental disorder” in the flagged tweet — a statement backed up by the American Psychiatric Association.

Selfish Decisions – Thoughtless Choices

Tue, 05/21/2019 - 3:29pm

Selfish Decisions
Thoughtless Choices

I would like to begin by saying that I have chosen my own fate, while many unfortunates, the aborted among them, did not. It only stands to reason that abortion both exemplifies and removes choice in the matter of life. In the matter of killing humans, whether it be through the decision of a judge in a death penalty case, war, reckless driving, etc., it is a choice that precedes death. The judge, the soldier, the selfish driver, all make choices that result in death. This does not, however mean that we humans will stop killing one another; it simply means that there is a decision that is made that spells death for someone.

I recently read an opinion that abortion was a selfish decision made in response to a thoughtless choice. Since I believe that abortion begins with thoughtless choice, I have to agree that that removing a growing human from his or her presumable point of entry into the world, I would like to add my own thoughts on this aspect of the matter.

Let us begin with the choice a man or a boy makes when he puts his penis into a woman or a girl’s vagina without a condom; is that a selfish choice? If he isn’t expecting a baby to arrive, or doesn’t care, then, yeah, that’s selfish regardless of what the woman or girl says about it. How about parents who forbid sex education or birth control, preferring (and hoping for) abstinence in their children? I’d have to sat that is both stupid and selfish.

In truth, sex itself is a selfish act. Anyone who probes their reflective self to any degree whatever has to admit that their motives for sex arise out of purely selfish causes. Men rarely refer to women as such, preferring the umbrella terms that are slang for that part of a woman that is the main reason for a relationship. It is what our POTUS likes to grab them by, and my experience tells me that his thoughts do not stray far from those of his fellow men.

I find that those opposed entirely to abortion think exactly like those persons who are tireless enemies of the second amendment. Gun control advocates, the fundamentalists at least, want every last gun removed from civilian hands. Constitutional rights be damned, they try every work around to my right to own a gun, picking the legal arguments to death in order to support their selfish cause; or is it me who is selfish for wanting a gun?

The simple truth is that men are on top, and women are on the bottom; men are bigger and stronger, and more economically powerful than women, meaning that women often have little to say in the way of demurring. Most of the new abortion laws would require more than saying no to qualify them for a legal abortion. Nonetheless, the states that went to war with America, bent on the destruction of our nation, have long been the mortal enemies of any abortion for any reason.

While there is no specific amendment guaranteeing a woman’s right to choose whether or not to remain pregnant, there is plenty of language in the constitution forbidding the government to make laws against it, and the partition between church and state make this entire argument that is based on religious motives illegal. In my opinion, those of us inclined to barge into a woman’s private affairs, making her body a slave of the state are the thoughtless and selfish ones.

What happens to that unwanted baby? Where are the laws that provide for their very existence after birth? Hey, don’t ask them at Chic Fil A, those cats are busy killing chickens, and don’t have time for nonsense.

If we want to find an answer to the prevention of abortion, we will need to proceed in a thoughtful manner, and with unselfish intentions.

When The White Van Comes

Tue, 05/21/2019 - 12:00am

When The White Van Comes

As many of you know I became a political writer doing articles about the Child Protective Services, known as the CPS. You could say that I “made my bones” with such pieces as “Trial Before Family Court” and “The 248.” That, and the video, “Ruh Roh” where a receptionist stupidly gave us our entire case file instead of the simple medical permission form and that made for a good healthy start for what is now known as “The Butcher Shop.”

Of late I’ve been asked what I’m no longer on the front of the attack on the CPS. Well, there are a number of reasons. First, I’m a professional journalist with a huge readership. The reason I have that readership is that I publish, and edit articles that people tend to read. The Butcher Shop spans the entire spectrum of opinion. It doesn’t preach to the choir. Most people have never met a CPS caseworker. When the white van pulls up to a neighbor’s house and people see that, and the subsequent removal of children, if you will note they do not come spilling out into the street with torches and pitchforks. The usual question they ask is, ”What did they DO?” That’s because ”they” must have done SOMETHING. Else the state wouldn’t be there, right?

Then there are ”advocacy” groups. The landscape is littered with people claiming to be championing the cause of forlorn parents groaning under the yoke of CPS overreach. For the most part these are opportunistic predators capitalizing on the desperation of families in crises. Those like Amy Charron, who calls herself a ”Targeted Individual” claiming the CPS stole her child and illegally gave her to the grandparents when in point of fact it was not a foster situation at all, but a fed up family as this narcissist abused her child out of pure jealousy. In one of our investigations, a private investigator revealed to us that the little girl had numerous tiny bruises on her buttocks from Amy pinching her in order to hear her cry, and THAT woman portrayed herself as an advocate for people under investigation by the protective services!

The next reason is over the years I have developed friendships within the Department. Yeah, yeah, yeah, get a rope! Some are highly placed and shall remain anonymous. These people have interacted with me on a professional and personal basis, and know that I am truthful, reliable, and surprisingly knowledgable. That, and where I am not well schooled they have opened the door a little bit, and allowed me to peer inside their world. An underpaid thankless job of heartbreak, filled with drug addicts and dead babies. A guard at Auschwitz had a less stressful job.

Then there is the claim that the Family Courts are somehow skewed and stacked against families. Let me explain something. The reason you go to court is that you and another person, or persons cannot agree and you elect a third party to mediate the matter. And it is guaranteed that one or the other parties will be displeased with the result. Want to see the same situation? Just step across the hall to criminal court, and for God’s sake stay away from divorce court!

Then there is guilt. This will anger ”advocates” but in most cases persons falling under the watchful eyes of the CPS are guilty! They lie, cover up, conspire and do anything else they can do to get that hound dog off their scent. Seasoned caseworkers know this. The difference between a seasoned caseworker and a rookie is a seasoned caseworker knows if they investigate every beer can in the trash, in short order, they’ll be buried under a caseload that is insurmountable. They drill down on the cases where they smell fumes and process out the ones where it’s basically a family feud. And it’s a crap shoot. If they’re right, their job becomes productive, but every now and then they will roll ”snake eyes,” and children die! Try and live with that ONCE! Now try dozens!

When we broke the Utah story we found real corruption, real child sex trafficking, and a really corrupt system. But! The system fixed itself! Once the good guys were made aware they cleaned house. Now there is a better one in place. In Texas, back in ’07, Williamson County was out of control. That led to me being nicknamed ”Bill the Butcher.” As my daughter in law once said, we really WERE standing at the gates of the Alamo. The state of Texas turned a corner. Now, its not perfect, but in our last cases with the CPS we saw a sensible, measured procedure that led to an equitable result. It will always be horrendous when a child has to be removed, no matter what the parents are alleged to have done, but as for me, I have broken the arrow, and as long as we are moving forward, will fight no more forever.

A Foolish Act

Mon, 05/20/2019 - 4:37am

The problem is, we as a society have become superficial, If it feels good do it, do it and it’s always someone else’s fault. Throughout the article, I see nothing but excuses being made for this feel good society and nothing about responsibility. Years ago, in a time we grew up in, a sexual encounter with the opposite sex was kept under raps, now these ladies brag about it worse then men. At some point, there has to be accountability for their actions. If we allow and accept the premise that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell others not to kill one another? Think about it…

98% of all abortions are performed as a matter of convenience and have nothing to do with being raped, or the mothers life. It’s a selfish act to make up for a foolish act. Most abortions are performed because it would interfere in that persons personal life, whether it be a career, or financial, or some other excuse and has little to do with that person’s health. The sad part is, if we were talking about a puppy, these same people would be up in arms and talking about animal cruelty.

Well mankind is turning into the cruelest animal on the planet, so cruel that they now think it’s a right to kill their own children and in some states it has even spread to killing the elderly….Here’s the deal, there are too many ways available to keep from getting pregnant. Starting with a condom, birth control pills, morning after pills and many more, are you telling me that you didn’t take precautions and use the available protection on the market, and waited until there was a detectable heart beat then decide to abort the baby? With all the things available to you, you were too lazy to use the precautions, and now that there is life growing inside you, you feel it’s your right, because it’s your body, to kill that life growing inside of you?

That life growing inside of you is a body as well, what right does that baby have? Once that body starts developing, it’s no longer just your body. Deciding to kill that life inside of you is nothing more than pure evil selfishness. Think about that! Again, 98% of all abortions are performed as a matter of convenience and have nothing to do with being raped, or the mothers life. It’s a selfish act to make up for a foolish act.

Here’s another way to think about this…In 38 U.S. states it is a double homicide to murder a woman AND her unborn baby. Regardless if she is in the first, second, or third trimester. Is anyone able to explain to me how this unborn child is any different biologically than an unborn child being carried into an abortion clinic by her mother?

Even if the mother survives and the baby dies, you’re charged with a homicide. How is it in one scenario, this child is considered an unborn baby, a life, and in the other it is just a fetus? There can not be a double standard, it’s either considered a life or it isn’t. Since it has already been determined that life does indeed begin at conception, then we can reasonably discern, that it’s murder in both cases, we can’t have it both ways under the law. It either is or isn’t.

The Trump Effect x Three

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:25pm

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Recently some of my readers have asked me what exactly do I think the “Trump Effect” is, and that I can answer in one simple word, “patriotism.” Unabashed “patriotism” to such a degree that now under Trump’s stewardship America sees herself, “We the People,” and the Constitution coming first unlike that of the previous president. And while the left will always say the “Trump Effect” is a bad thing, that judgment is colored by their inability to define or even access his presidency fairly…their emotions always get the best of them. And that’s sad as the lefts hatred of Donald Trump the man will never allow them to see let alone acknowledge all the good he has done for our country.

So let’s start with but three most recent “good things” courtesy of the “Trump Effect.”

“Good thing” number one: the Trump economic juggernaut keeps rolling along and when a country’s economy is strong that equates to said country being able to successfully flex its muscle in every other aspect as well. Without a strong economy nothing else really matters, and under Donald Trump’s leadership America’s economy is booming no matter what the Democrats say.

Take the newest jobs numbers for example…the Department of Labor’s April 2019 jobs report shows that the U.S. added 263,000 new hires in April with the unemployment rate falling to 3.6%…the lowest it’s been in 50 years. And this easily beats Wall Street’s projection of 190,000 jobs being created and an unemployment rate of 3.8%.

Also, with wage growth being above three percent for the past nine consecutive months, we now see the average hourly pay rate reaching $27.77 no matter that the average work week dropped 0.1 hours to 34.4 hours. And with business services, construction, and health care jobs gaining the most in new hires…all key economic indicators now point towards both a robust and sustainable economic growth pattern being in place for quite a few years…enough years so to become the longest in U.S. history.

Not too shabby is it…and it’s all thanks to President Donald Trump

Now here’s something else not a bit too shabby…the all-important GDP increased by 3.2% during the first quarter of this year, while productivity jumped 3.6%…its best gain in five years. Even pending home sales rose by 3.8% in March leading into April, leaving open the possibility that interest rates will either be held in check or cut by up to a full percentage point…something President Trump would like to see.

So much for Pelosi and crew’s doom and gloom economic scenario for the good news continues on with economic data showing that during the first quarter of 2019, the U.S. Treasury showed an almost mind-blowing $160.3 billion surplus in April alone.

And what’s led to this economic success story…the “Trump Effect” called “tax cuts.” And yet many Democrat presidential wannabees…including so-called moderate Democrat Joe Biden and socialist proponent Bernie Sanders say they will repeal Trump’s tax cuts if they should become president.

Nothing like the Democrats wanting to replace what works with what doesn’t work.

And Democrats are also unhappy over President Trump’s doubling U.S. tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion in Chinese imports into our country. Saying that this move, which took affect last Friday at 12:01 EST, will escalate a trade war between China and the U.S., what most of the Democrats don’t see is the big picture and the fact that tariffs work. How so…tariffs force U.S. businesses to shift away from Chinese to American suppliers thus hurting China’s economy which in turn forces the Chinese to make needed concessions…concessions benefiting our country which right now spends four times more on Chinese goods than China spends on our goods. And isn’t this what these tariffs are all about… making “Made in America” goal number one.. I know it is for our president…it should be for Democrats too

“Good thing” number two: America is flexing her military muscle once again, something long overdo thanks to our previous president. Last week President Trump approved the deployment of a Patriot missile defense battery and yet another warship to the Middle East due to what he rightfully said was “heightened Iranian readiness to conduct offensive operations” against both our and our allied countries…Israel most specifically. In fact, the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) had previously stated that since early May there has been an increased possibility of Iran or its regional proxies taking action against U.S. and partner interests. One just has to look to May 4th and 5th when 700 Iranian-supplied Hamas rockets reigned down on Israeli civilian population centers to see Trump’s words as truth.

And soon after MARAD’s announcement the Pentagon released its own statement that “the U.S. is postured and ready to defend U.S. forces and interests in the region” and that the USS Arlington…already scheduled to go to the region…would see its date being moved up so as to provide “enhanced command and control capabilities” “capabilities” including said Patriot missiles…for the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group, already in position in the Red Sea. Also, a U.S. air force bomber task force, including B-52 bombers, recently arrived at the U.S. airbase Al Udeid in Qatar.

And Iran’s response to this show of force…Iran dismissed these moves as nothing but “psychological warfare” on Trump’s part designed to intimidate its government while Iran’s semi-official Isna news agency quoted senior Iranian cleric, Yousef Tabatabai-Nejad, as saying that the U.S. military fleet could be “destroyed with one missile.”

And so the chess game begins again but this time Iran is up against a chess master not an islamic condoner

But if truth be told ever since Trump rightfully removed the U.S. from Obama’s very bad nuclear deal…thank you President Trump…and reimposed even stricter sanctions on Iran…it was all but a given that Iran would eventually threaten to cut off all shipments of oil to the U.K., China, France, Germany and Russia if they didn’t help to “shield” Iran from said sanctions. And this showdown and show of force was not only destined to happen but had actually been escalating in the weeks prior to Trump’s now taking military action.

So as Iran continues to claim that its current actions are solely in response to what they call Trump’s “economically crippling sanctions,” and with Iran’s continuing bloviations to close the vital Strait of Hormuz through which almost a fifth of all the oil consumed globally passes…they now are threatening to target for reprisal commercial vessels, oil tankers, and U.S. military vessels in both the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. This leaves one to wonder if the mullahs really are stupid enough to believe that a man like President Trump will just sit back and do nothing…not a chance as Iran is clearly bating the U.S. for war… with Israel of course being target number one.

But Iran best not play this game with President Trump for it will not end well for them as we and the military “Trump Effect” will see to that. Bye-bye mullahs…enjoy your 72 virgins… enjoy them all in hell

“Good thing” number three: has the “Trump Effect” now seeing a rightful Republican backlash…a backlash that would never dare be seen when Barack HUSSEIN Obama was president…a backlash against none other than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who, on the request of Texas Democrat Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, had the unmitigated gall to allow a well-known radical anti-Semite and an avowed Hamas supporter, an imam by the name of Omar Suleiman, to deliver the daily prayer before the House of Representatives late last week

Claiming her decision regarding Suleiman came after being “dismayed” about the controversy surrounding Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, pray tell how does a prayer by Palestinian activist Omar Suleiman…founder and president of the radical Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research, a supporter of the anti-Israel “Boycott, Divest and Sanction” (BDS) movement who also aligns himself with the Muslim Brotherhood and its American “front group” CAIR…exactly how does that or any prayer right any wrong spewed from Ilhan Omar’s mouth…simply it does not nor were Suliman’s words ever meant to

In fact, Suleiman’s words were planned to make things worse, which was obviously Nancy Pelosi’s goal as her recent actions or lack thereof are proving that she herself is an anti-Semite. Why else would she allow the very man who relishes in not only pushing anti-Semitic tropes about how Israel controls U.S. foreign policy…which it does not…and who continuously whines that Israel is the 51st state of the U.S…foolhardy words indeed…yet words I cannot find being condemned by House Speaker Pelosi.

And even though it’s after the fact, some prominent muslims are now questioning Pelosi’s decision including muslim reformer Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, who stated that Omar Suleiman “represents the Islamist establishment,” adding, “This ‘scholar’ is not a moderate…” and that, “It is absurd if not bigotry to think a man who holds these positions represents most American Muslims.”

Well Dr, Jasser, while Omar Suleiman might not represent most American muslims he surely does represent Pelosi and the other anti-Semitic sorts in Congress who, like him, hate both Israel and the Jewish people. And in her allowing this slap in the face to American Jews and our ally Israel, Pelosi has willingly allowed the halls of Congress to be forever stained.

I think New York Rep. Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) said it best when he tweeted that it was, “Totally unacceptable that @SpeakerPelosi had Omar Suleiman give the opening prayer yesterday in the House. He compares Israel to the Nazis & calls them terrorists, supports Muslim Brotherhood, incites violence calling for a Palestinian antifada & the end of zionism, etc. Bad call”

Bad call Ms. Pelosi…very bad call indeed.

And as we knew would happen when anyone dare call a Democrat or a muslim to task, when Suleimen was questioned by the media regarding those now speaking out against his giving the invocation, he blamed the brouhaha not on his own radical islamist and anti-Semitic views, but on a campaign waged by “creepy obscure right wing sites [designed] to flood the internet with vicious smears.

And know it’s only a matter of time before the Democrats twist the truth and blame Trump himself for the backlash against both Pelosi and Suleiman. It always seems to be that way when Democrats and muslims get knocked down by thesteamroller known as the “Trump Effect.”

And so these are but three of the current “good things” courtesy of the “Trump Effect.” It really is sad that most Democrats cannot see all the “good things” President Trump has done, but then again maybe some Democrats can…maybe it’s just that their blindly followed political ideologies will not allow them to publicly acknowledge it. There’s always the privacy of the 2020 voting booth…we can only hope that those Democrats acknowledge Trump’s “good things” in the end.

All We Need To Know

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:24pm

The Bible tells us Adam sold us down the river of sin.  His first sin, disobedience was followed by death; spiritual death or separation from God and then physical death.  The Bible also tells us no one gets a free pass.  Every one of us descended from Adam is born in sin and subject to death.  Because that first sin of Adam’s broke humanity’s relationship with God in every way.   

However, the far reaching extent of this wasn’t apparent till God made it crystal clear to Moses.  Here’s what we learned from God’s detailed and explicit law: Sin is a yawning chasm separating us from God that leads to death.  We also learned that even those who don’t sin in the same way Adam did, by disobeying a specific command of God, sin in one way or another.  Consequently we all experience both the spiritual and the physical end of life which is separation from God not just as an inheritance but as something each of us earns on our own.  

But God didn’t leave us hopeless.  When God cursed the serpent for tempting Eve to sin which is what dragged Adam into choosing fellowship with his wife over fellowship with his Creator He also made a promise that from woman would come a Savior.  From the moment of the fall comes the hope of resurrection pointing ahead to the One chosen before the foundation of the world to get us off this one way conveyor belt to hell. 

To maintain God’s absolute justice sin had to be paid for.  The penalty of separation and death had to be fulfilled.  All humanity could ever do was continue the cycle over and over since everyone sinned and added to the burden of the verdict.  Then Jesus Christ, God Himself, came to bear the burden and pay the price becoming a sinless sacrifice, the just for the unjust.  His death foreshadowed by every sacrifice ever offered up under the Law.   

However, the blood of goats, bulls, sheep, and other animals could never cleanse from sin.  The best they could do was cover symptoms of sin through obedience to the commands of God.  They couldn’t deal with the root cause, separation from God because no human ever lived a sinless life after offering one sacrifice so another was always needed and death flowed like a river of sewage through the lives of all.  

Just as Adam’s sin brought death into the world one person condemning many the sacrifice of Jesus brings life into the world One person making the way open for many.  Though one foreshadowed the other and one fulfilled the other the gift of Jesus is not perfectly parallel to the death-dealing sin of Adam.  You see if Adam’s sin put all of humanity in the well-deserved black hole of separation from God, imagine what God’s undeserved gift poured out through Jesus Christ’s sinless sacrifice can do.  How can we possibly compare Adam’s death-dealing sin and Jesus’ life-giving gift?  The righteous verdict on Adam’s sin was the death sentence on everyone born of Adam.  The gracious verdict on the sacrifice of Jesus is this life restoring sentence on everyone born of Jesus, the second Adam.  

Here it is in a nutshell: Death which is separation from God gained the upper hand through Adam’s sin.  Now the astounding recovery of life, real life, life in union with God explodes in our spirit as soon as we’re born-again out of the descending line of Adam and into the ascending line of Jesus.  Since the price has been paid and an acceptable sacrifice made the just for the unjust everyone who accepts this absolutely undeserved and free life-gift sees reality flow back into the mold God initially wanted for humanity: Living, loving, and praising in union with Him.   

That’s the back story now for all you need to know: 

If we confess Jesus as the head of our life and if we believe in our hearts God raised Him from the dead we will be saved.   

It just that easy and it’s yours if you want it.

Omar and Tlaib…Siding With The Enemy Yet Again

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:22pm

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Once again, Israel faces a barrage of deadly rocket attacks by terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. We support Israel 100% in its defense of its citizens…To the Gazan people — these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery. END the violence and work towards peace – it can happen!” 
President Donald Trump’s message to the “Gazan” people not the “Palestinian” people…take note

When someone runs for office in these United States one is supposed to not only have America’s best interests at heart but that of her allies as well. When someone runs for office in these United States one is not supposed to vocally, in print or online come out and support U.S. terrorist designated groups nor raise money for said groups. And when someone runs for office in these United States one takes an oath to uphold the entirety of the Constitution…not pick and choose the parts they want to uphold

And yet there are two women who are doing just that as well as using their 15 minutes of “political infamy” to not only outwardly side with an enemy against both America and her staunchest ally Israel, but who have picked up Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s proverbial knife to continue on with his self-initiated stabbing of Israel in the back. And they’re doing so no matter that theirpolitical higher-ups have “politely” suggested they stop.

So it’s now come down to a game of words…or should I say twitter fingers…as both newly elected Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have not reigned in their predominantly anti-Israel comments and sentiments. Knowing well that there is now a different set of rules for muslims in these United States…as in say as you wish with America’s allegiances be damned and do so knowing you won’t be stopped…means those in power fear that both you and those vile sorts you support will do unto them the very violent actions you so happily condone they do unto Israel.

And really, if not fear of muslim reprisal here in the U.S…fear of our streets running “red” with we infidel’s blood…why else would these two muslimas still be sitting in the halls of our government spewing out their traitorous rhetoric against an ally when there are legalities in place to “expel” them both from Congress

Simply, both Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives who have made it clear that they support Iranian backed terrorists in their almost daily onslaught against Israel as well as heralding their support for Yassir Arafat’s made-up people known as “Palestinians.” And on May 5th, Omar, in an attempt to justify Hamas’s attack on Israel, tweeted while Israel was being bombarded by what amounted to roughly 700 Hamas rocket attacks against its civilian populations and cities that, and I quote: “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”

Really Omar, how’s this for truth about your “cycles of violence”…in the past year alone, besides rocket attacks, Israel’s southern communities have endured a barrage of incendiary devices being launched from Gaza including balloons filled with explosives… balloons that have burned fields, greenhouses and homes…balloons causing untold destruction, hardship, injuries and even death.

In fact, the President of the American Islamic Forum For Democracy, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a truly moderate muslim, has publicly criticized Ilhan Omar for her recent tweets regarding Hamas’ renewed violence against Israel. Recently on Fox News program ‘America’s Newsroom,’ Jasser stated that, “She needs to look at her own talking points. If she truly is about universal human rights and humanitarianism, there’s no cycle. This is started and can be ended by Hamas’s terrorist actions.” Adding that,“My question to her is if she cares about Muslim civil rights and cares about humanitarianism, then why doesn’t she call for them to stop the violence? Why doesn’t she call for an Arab Spring in the Palestinian areas against their tyrants which are Hamas and call for a new peaceful leadership?…And, unfortunately, there’s nothing that Israel or America can do right. And, no matter what terrorists like Hamas do, she will continue to apologize for them.”

And how right Dr. Jasser is for Ilhan Omar conveniently forgets that it’s always Hamas… Iran’s proxy Hamas…who initiates such attacks against Israel not Israel against Hamas or against those living in Gaza. Also, Omar forgets or doesn’t care that in 1997 the U.S. declared Hamas a “foreign terrorist organization,” and that in 2007, Hamas’ Ahmad Bah, the then-acting speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, publicly stated that Hamas’ intention was to destroy America and “call on allah to annihilate every American.

Now add in that Canada, Egypt and the European Union have also designated Hamas a terrorist group with even Jordan…minus the actual designation…banning Hamas from its country. And the U.K., Australia and New Zealand have specifically designated Hamas’ military wing…cowards always covering their faces…as a terror group, and that’s in addition to Saudi Arabia banning not only Hamas itself but their parent organization, the ever infamous Muslim Brotherhood, as well.

And Ilhan Omar knows…as do we all…that it’s Iran who directly backs and arms Hamas militarily, financially and politically. Yet Omar remains unusually silent to National Security Adviser John Bolton announcing on Sunday, May 5th…the second day of the newest Israeli/Gaza conflict…that the U.S. is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region, a region which includes the Middle East. Adding that the move was in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” and that “unrelenting force” will meet “any attack on U.S. interests or those of its allies”…allies being Israel…surely helped shut Omar’s mouth now didn’t it.

Now as for avowed Palestinian mouthpiece Rashida Tlaib…she also took to tweeter on May 5th, in response to a New York Times, May 4th article, Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds with Airstrikes. Saying the article and most especially the title promotes a “lack of responsibility on Israel,” Tlaib ignores that Israel has every right to defend herself against this or any rocket attacks against its civilian populations. And I quote Tlaib’s own words, “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families.” 

Lack of responsibility on Israel’s part”…Rashida Tlaibknows nothing about which she speaks.How so…here are but four key facts

  1. When Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005 in an effort to bring some semblance of peace to the region, the Jewish farmers left their greenhouses and hothouses intact in order to help aid the Gazans…notice I called them what Trump called them…in what could have been a profitable food stuffs business just as it had been for the Jewish farmers. But instead of feeding the people and realizing what a gift this was, Hamas operatives burnt down said greenhouses and hothouses as well as synagogues, thus taking food and monies out of their own people’s pockets and mouths and by denial putting it into theirs alone.
  2. After Israel vacated Gaza, they still continued to supply goods, services, and medical supplies to the people of Gaza even after they, in a supposedly “democratic election,” chose to be governed by terrorists…by Hamas. And yet even while the current rocket barrage was ongoing Israel allowed key fuel shipments from Israel into Gaza to “avoid a humanitarian crisis”…how’s that for taking “responsibility” Ms. Tlaib.
  3. Over these many years numerous countries have sent huge amounts of both economic and humanitarian aid into Gaza…we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars in such aid. But the people never received that aid…instead seeing both monies and aid being “stolen by Hamas”… ”stolen” to be used to help fund its propaganda machine and its terrorist operations against Israel. In fact, just last month Hamas forcibly shut down Gazan protests by those who were marching against the misuse of said economic and humanitarian aid…misuse regarding terrorism infrastructures, government corruption, and payoffs.
  4. Both Tlaib and Omar must stop whining that Gaza is an “occupied territory” for to be “occupied” one has to be not only living under the control of the “occupier” but the “occupier” must have a physical presence in said territory…Israel has neither. In fact, not a single Jew or Israeli lives in Gaza as the 10,000+ Jews who were living in Gaza were relocated elsewhere in 2005, “ethnically cleansing” Jews from Gaza if you will. Since then Gaza has been under total control of Hamas (and its puppet master Iran), hence it is not an Israeli “occupied territory.” All that has or has not happened in Gaza is the sole responsibility of Hamas…period.

And a few other things neither Ilhan Omar nor Rashida Tlaib will like regarding Hamas’ latest attack on Israel. First, Saudi Arabia’s leading “intellectuals and journalists” have once again openly sided with Israel against Hamas* as they expressed hope for Israel’s “safety and victory”… yes…”victory.” And by their verbally attacking Hamas and its policies…most especially its firing rockets into Israel’s civilian areas…these Saudis have laid the blame directly on Hamas, not Israel, for all the problems in Gaza. Some even went so far as to say that Hamas was acting on direct orders from Tehran and that such actions were most likely a misplaced form of retaliation for Trump’s May 3rd tightening of sanctions on Iran.

Second, on May 5th in response to both Omar’s and Tlaib’s tweets, Iranian-born now Australian Shia Imam Mohamad Tawhidi (@Imamofpeace), President of the Islamic Association of South Australia, called both these women out by name saying that, “Remember that time @Ilhan and @RashidaTlaib condemned Hamas’ terrorism? Neither do I.” Seems like some of their own brethren are now seeing the danger these two muslimas pose to peace in the region, and yet both remain sitting in the halls of Congress.

So while Israel continues to forge new friendships and alliances with key Arab nations and even with some of islam’s more “moderate” religious leaders, Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon recently stated in regards to this latest altercation that killed four Israelis, “Iran was behind everything” which is happening in the Middle East. 

And shock of all shocks even the E.U. and the U.N. are now condemning Hamas as well as Islamic Jihad…yet another Gaza-based terrorist group with direct ties to Iran. And why also Islamic Jihad…because Islamic Jihad has said they will “not abide by any ceasefire agreement” vowing instead to “shoot missiles” directly into Tel Aviv.

In fact, not only did U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres state that he “condemns in the strongest terms the launching of rockets from Gaza into Israel, particularly the targeting of civilian population centers,” but European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini has also called for a halt to Hamas’ “indiscriminate rocket attacks”  being launched from Gaza. And surprisingly, Germany’s deputy government spokesperson, one Ulrike Demmer, said the German government strongly condemns Hamas’ attacks on Israel adding that, “Israel has the right to defend it’s security and respond appropriately to attacks.”

So as it stands now as I write this article, last Monday, May 6th, Egypt once again brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas…their eighth ceasefire within a year’s time. And while Egypt’s intentions are honorable such ceasefires always seems to mean in the end that, “Israel ceases and Hamas fires.”

And Islamic Jihad’s newest threat has led Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu to issue a statement that “the campaign is not over yet” and that “the IDF was continuing preparations for military action in Gaza”… actions I believe are long overdue especially since Iran wants Hamas to “up the pressure” on Israel.

And Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib, via their tweets and hateful words of condemnation against Israel and not against the actions of Hamas, have now positioned themselves to be a direct detriment to both the United States and Israel. Traitorous actions if you ask me… actions counter to our Constitution. And if one cannot abide by the oath they took to uphold the Constitution…and that includes supporting our allies in this case Israel…then one needs to be “expelled” from Congress x two.
*The Saudi tweet translates as follows: “Our hearts are with you. May Allah protect Israel and its people. We will not let the treacherous hand of Iran and its agents in Gaza reach the Israeli people. It’s time to say this out loud: confronting the terror of Hamas is the responsibility of all the countries in the region and of the international community [as a whole], not only of Israel.”

It’s More Than Just About Other People’s Money

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:20pm

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Recently reported was that nearly half of all millennials are willing to live under socialism as they view capitalism as being on par with four-letter words. Never mind that socialism has failed wherever and whenever it’s been tried making it truly sad that millennials erroneously equate capitalism with the belief that the already wealthy get wealthier while the sum of all others get little to nothing. And that belief can be blamed not only on the left’s lovefest with fake news but also on our schools of “higher indoctrination”…schools formerly known as colleges and universities…not teaching historical and societal truths let alone economics 101.

Now add in that millennials and most of the uninformed and ill-informed masses have no idea that socialism equates to big government, lack of personal responsibility, elimination of private property, coupled with both the “centralization of the means of production” and of course decision-making…making socialism more than just about running out of other people’s money.

And while those pushing for socialism relish in empty promises that socialism will create a classless society where everyone is equal…while remaining clueless that it’s equality at the bottom rung of the socioeconomic ladder…a ladder where only a select few will reap the rewards of others hard work…and where in the end only one individual reaches the top rung of said ladder.

Welcome to the morphing of socialism into a dictatorship where the masses worship the very dictator who provides for their meager existence and where God becomes but a distant memory for God has no place in a society of robotic equals who have no concept of “free will.” Better to be taken care of…to have every need met…sort of…than do for oneself. And for those who dare to think outside socialism’s box it usually does not end well as can be seen in what happens in countries embracing socialism…countries like Venezuela.

And while socialism’s political and media proponents try to market it as “rule by the working people”…a collective working class they claim will eliminate the disparities between the haves and have nots…the fact is that when you strip away all the hoped for socialist ideologies and promises…what remains is but the truth that what was envisioned to be a socialist utopia of equality for all is but rule by those who dare to play and then win the game known as “political tyranny”…a game based upon fear mongering and undeliverable promises. And know that said game is not being played for the betterment of the people but solely to see whose quest for money and power trumps all others. To the victor goes the spoils…to the loser goes enslavement minus the ability to know one has actually been enslaved.

But even when the truths about socialism are stripped away and laid bare for all to see, the scariest thing about socialism as it relates to today’s American political scene is that if Democrats play their cards right…if the far left side of the party is successful in taking over the party’s hierarchy…socialism might simply be voted in courtesy of the above stated uninformed and misinformed masses…in other words those with their hands out selling their souls simply for socialism’s promise of even more “free stuff.”“Political tyranny” won without so much as a single revolutionary shot fired…socialism voted in because we on the right did not know how to successfully fight back against the very folks wishing to do our constitutional republic harm.

And sadly today there are many wishing us harm…including some new to Congress… Democrats all…many willing to sing socialism’s supposed praises yet having no idea nor caring about the ramifications of the socialistic monster they’re trying to create

So now let’s focus on but two of the loudest callers for socialism to become America’s newest societal norm by starting first with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, the ever so vile muslima who relishes in wearing both her overt anti-Semitism and her hatred of all things President Trump as proud badges of honor. This CAIR operative and jihad condoning nasty piece of work…an outward proponent of socialism who remains blind to socialism’s many failures including in Venezuela, a country not that far from home. Venezuela…a country tethering on the brink of collapse…a country replete with ill-conceived economic policies and ever-growing corruption…a sinking ship of a country adrift on a cyclonic socialist sea.

Never mind that Ilhan Omar has foolishly been blaming both our country and president for Venezuela’s ongoing political turmoil and economic woes by saying that, “A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today.” Never mind that she absurdly equates U.S. sanctions with bullying as the means by which she says President Trump hopes to initiate “regime change”…never mind all that for what should be minded as it equates to our country is that Ilhan Omar says socialism is a very good thing and that it’s what the Venezuelan people want. Simply, she lies, for the people of Venezuela…people who long for the days when Venezuela was free…are now fighting back in an effort to return Venezuela to the “Jewel of Latin America” that she was before Hugo Chavez turned once democratic Venezuela into a socialist hellhole…the same kind of hellhole Ilhan Omar wants the U.S. to become.

See video ‘Omar Blames US for Devastation…’ here:

Still refusing to recognize Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s duly elected president backed by both the country’s constitution and her people, Omar cannot accept as truth that Venezuela’s being in the midst of what are now violent anti-government protests coupled with a call to remove socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro from power is simply because socialism is not working for the people. Venezuelans continue to starve under socialism as food rationing, one of socialism’s calling cards, has led the average Venezuelan to lose 24lbs. in one year alone with mass starvation now taking hold of the still oil-rich country. And not only do Venezuelans have but limited access to clean drinking water, but 93% of the people simply can no longer afford to buy food, and those who can wait in line for hours to buy what little food is available from the few vendors the government allows to stay in business.

And Ilhan Omar sees no problem with this all too common aspect of socialism…sad isn’t it.

Also, Venezuela’s prices on almost all goods have risen nine times in the mere eight years since socialist price controls took effect. And with inflation rates now being 400% higher than that of its neighboring Latin American countries, Maduro’s socialist government still touts that socialism affords Venezuelans access to free health care. But what he’s not saying is what good is free health care when there’s an overall 85+% shortage of medications needed to fight and control simple illnesses and diseases as well as give children much needed vaccinations. Also omitted from Maduro’s health care discourse is that ordinary antibiotics now cost Venezuelans twice their minimum wage…as in a miserly wage of a mere $6.70 per hour in a country who, thanks to socialism, has an annual inflation rate of over two million percent and whose personal income tax rate now stands at 34%.

And again, this is what Ilhan Omar wants as our country’s future.

What Ilhan Omar just doesn’t get…or gets but just doesn’t care…is that Venezuela is the perfect example of what happens when socialism brings about the centralization and control of both a country’s government and its economy. Simply, free enterprise is no longer free and being tied to the government for all one’s needs becomes the sadly accepted societal norm. And in Ilhan Omar’s case, maybe it’s that she thinks a socialistic society will be better suited to help aide in islam’s so-wanted takeover of American society…with an islamist one never knows.

And then there’s New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…aka Alexandria Ocasio-Common Core-tez for reasons needing no explaining…whose only difference between her and Ilhan Omar is that Omar’s actions and words truly reek of being a traitor while I don’t think AOC really hates America as Omar does. I think AOC simply cannot understand all the negative ramifications of embracing socialism’s economic and societal paths nor can her guru Bernie Sanders for that matter.

And so the woman who describes herself as a democratic-socialist…whatever that means as it’s sort of an oxymoron…a few months ago said of socialism, “So when millennials talk about concepts like democratic socialism, we’re not talking about these kinds of ‘Red Scare’ boogeyman…we’re talking about countries and systems that already exist that have already been proven to be successful in the modern world.” 

So let me give Ms. AOC and those of her ilk a little economics 101 lesson. And while I know this lesson will go over her head she needs to be made aware of the reasons why socialism will not work here in our country before making a bigger fool of herself than she already has.

Let’s start with the countries Ms. AOC alludes to as being socialism’s success stories…Finland, Canada, and the U.K…all countries with socialized medicine…the very type of health care AOC wants implemented here. Ignoring that socialized medicine has its own set of strict rules, regulations, costs, and horrors…rules such as needing “permission” to have even the most basic of surgery and the government being the decider of when and where life support is to be turned off…see my article A Decision Not Unlike Solomon’s for one such story…what we call single-payer health care…as in Medicare for all…sees being overlooked by AOC is the fact that what might work in the individual countries of Europe…countries with populations much less than that of the U.S…will simply not work here for the scope of implementing such change comes at too high a monetary cost.

And why is that? Because while the concept of socialized medicine sounds good on the surface with its advocates saying it would both “cut out the middleman”…as in the insurance companies…while also lowering administrative costs as the government itself would now be in charge, it would not see the monies saved from said cuts providing “universal coverage” for allat a much lower cost. And again why…because those favoring socialized medicine ignore the fact that to implement such coverage on such a massive population scale…a scale where it would cover all Americans equally…would lead to major implementation cost increases which in turn would then lead to an across-the-board tax hike in order to fund said coverage. And who would feel the tax pinch the most…the lower and middle classes of course not to mention that doctors and hospitals would have to accept even less reimbursements for services rendered then they already are.

Simple translation for socialism-loving AOC: whatever monies folks saved under a single-payer system would be eaten up by an increase in their taxes…and that is fact.

But the main reason why socialism won’t work here in the U.S. is that socialism is simply abject tyranny with incompetency thrown in for good, or should I say bad, measure. Remember, socialism mandates a government controlled centralized economy with its failures clearly seen in the a fore mentioned Venezuela. Also, when folks are put on welfare…socialism’s blood brother of sorts… one tends to lose what’s called the “American work ethic” well as the drive to see our children monetarily better off than we are. So why bother getting a job when the “freebies and hand-outs” now serve one just as well, if not better, than what one would garner through their own hard work.

And something else AOC and her socialism groupies forget is that while American-style capitalism has not and will not ever result in equal distribution of wealth…it never was meant to do so…folks are always free to aspire to and work towards something better as well as to act in their own best self-interests. And if truth be told equality for all is but a myth for there will always be a pecking order that sees both politicians and their cronies sitting on the top rung of the socioeconomic ladder…equality be damned.

So while socialism will always remain about spending other people’s money that’s not really what it’s all about for absolute control is what socialism needs as it prime calling card in order for it to not only succeed but to last. And without absolute control…power with no questions asked…socialism eventually collapses from within just as we now see happening in Venezuela…just as it’s always happened in other countries where true absolute control over the emotions of the populace was never really achieved. 

And those like Ihan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez simply do not grasp the reality nor the dangers that absolute control entails and without that reality their vision of socialism is doomed to fail. Remember, throughout history both absolute control and absolute power have always proved fleeting at best…while the power of we American patriots to do what’s right for our country has never waned. And that’s something those pushing for socialism always, thankfully, seem to forget.

Keep It In Your Pants!

Sun, 05/19/2019 - 9:41am

just keep It In Your pants. Sounds too simple, huh? The sorry truth, which is that the bulk of those fighting against safe, legal abortion also fight against contraceptives with the same zeal as they show in the fight against abortion. It’s true. The Catholic Church, likely the strongest opponent to abortion, is deadlocked in a ferocious fight against contraception. Condoms, the morning after pill, plan B, pretty much anything that might prevent unwanted pregnancy, are anathema to the clergy. They approve of the rhythm method, but those who depend on that are collectively known as “parents!”

After being drafted into a religion well ahead of our ability to discriminate between truth and lies, we are forced to publicly believe the notion that copulation (between a man and a woman) is for the purpose of procreation alone. The Talmud, that part of the old testament which somehow wrangled this idea out of the writings of mad prophets and monks living apart from their fellow man, does say that men should rejoice in sex, and that women are to allow the act at stipulated intervals. Each age group was to have joyous sex as married couples daily all the way to once a week after a certain age. The old Testament exhorts men to “be fruitful and multiply”.

Undoubtedly some of this spite toward contraception is the result of altar boys not having to worry about pregnancy, but I believe that the bulk of this stupidity is deeply rooted in the fact that you have to swallow that gigantic inquisition pill, the one that forces us to admit publicly that we cannot have a personal relationship with God, and that every word in the “good book” is true.

Understandable when you are trying to increase the number of people whose males will have a portion of their penis removed as an outward sign of their faith. It’s no wonder that the politicians want to turn the issue of a woman’s right to choose over to the courts, after all, while only twenty one percent of our politicians are catholic, fully sixty seven percent of our judges are catholic. But those fun loving guys at the Vatican are not the only issue here, so allow me to add another couple of points, if I may.

First, the constitution. Our constitution has long been misunderstood by those too ignorant to read it to represent the rights of government. A long line of old white men have remarked upon the founding fathers and their intent toward behavior; Newt Gingrich said that the founding fathers intended that our nation be founded upon religion and faith. Not. Rick Santorum went on at length about how the church influenced the constitution, and how the teachings of the Old Testament prophets shaped constitutional policy.

Really? Bill O’Reilly stated frequently that the founding fathers spoke out against licentious behavior. Can’t find that one anywhere. In fact a seemingly endless parade of hard liners in the “so called” debate against women’s health rights have pounded their tiny fists into their constantly open palms insisting that the constitution and our founding fathers intended Americans to be steadfastly moral and religious. I say so called debate, because they were the only ones who were talking about it. By the way, in case you haven’t read the Constitution, it expressly builds a wall between church and state. I know, you can’t deprive a person of life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness, and while that is absolutely constitutional, the constitution defines a legal person as being a human or non-human entity that is treated as a person for legal purposes, such as suing, being sued, owning property, or entering into contracts.

Next, Paterfamilias. What probably at the heart of America’s difficulties is the simple but easily seen truth that the parental role has been gobbled up by the state. I mean, when I was a kid, my parents paid me the slightest attention when I disagreed with them. There was no dinner table debate about whether or not I went to school the next day, no mulling over the prospects of perhaps having candy and ice cream for dinner. When My mother or father said no television for a week, any disagreement on my part would have certainly earned me an extra week with no television! And this was true of anyone who was an adult. That’s because I was a child.

White people in America come from Europe, and Europeans are basically bred from roman stock, and roman or not, the world existed for centuries under the law of paterfamilias, a term meaning that the father (later a role extended to single mothers) had a sovereign right to determine the futures of their children. The control given to parents over their children was inviolable. Of course, nowadays, a CPS worker, a policeman, or a teacher can just breeze right in and determine not only your child’s future, but whether or not you are a good fit for filling the role of parent for your child, breaching the contract between God and Man. Thus, allowing the state to determine whether or not a woman may choose to abort a child within a reasonable time or not removes the control God meant to have over her body, including a gamete or a fetus.

Last, I want us to consider society at large. These same hard line inquisitors have been undercutting taxes for as long as I can remember. My God, listening to rich people carp about taxes is about the most revolting thing I have to put up with. People blessed with so much money that they cannot spend it all crying and sniveling about it is somehow soothing to Americans though. Or so it would seem, because we keep electing their pets.

The southern coalition against smart people, or the redneck states, as I like to call them, have joined hands with Utah, the state populated by folks who have sex in their underwear, to mark up laws that outlaw abortion. I can understand the Mormons outlawing abortion, in as much as their religion (which is far more sensible than Catholicism) may have laws on the books about polygamy, but if you think it isn’t practiced there regularly, well, you just haven’t been there. Any religion that explicitly encourages multiple wives is going to shoot the moon on abortion, that’s the only sensible thing in this otherwise ridiculous mess. But make no mistake, we ain’t building schools for all those new kids, we sure aren’t building hospitals to treat them when they get sick, or even birth them when they come knocking on the door of what used to be the land of plenty. It’s like some kind of dystopian nightmare! There isn’t enough infrastructure for the people that are already here, and I’m supposed to be overjoyed that meth babies are dropping all over the place?
So, yeah, what she said. Give women not just access to, but free contraceptives. Let women control their own lady parts, and for God’s sake, keep it in your pants!

Nobody “Likes” Abortion!

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 3:48pm

From A Thinking Liberal

Dear “Pro Life” Person:

Don’t like abortion? Me neither. That makes both of us members of a club that literally everyone is in.

Nobody likes abortion. It’s not a good time. Nobody who isn’t pregnant wishes they were so they could have an abortion.

I hear you want to eliminate abortion completely. Me too! See how much we have in common? Difference is you want to ban it, and I want to prevent it. Neither method will eliminate all abortion, but your method will harm women, kill women, and take their autonomy away, while my method will educate women (and men), provide unlimited free access to contraception of all types, reproductive healthcare, and sometimes abortions because sometimes you need an abortion. I won’t get into why, because the why isn’t for me and you to decide.

You know what the other cool thing about my method is? It works. In places where Planned Parenthood exists (you know, the thing you want to defund), abortions decrease. Sexual education and access to contraception prevents abortions.

So how about we work together to reduce abortion the right way, by empowering women, not enslaving them.

CigarBox – Las Vegas

Sat, 05/18/2019 - 9:25am

Saturday morning Mike put the suitcases in the pickup and June climbed in, wearing her “501’s” and her red cowboy boots. Claudette waved them goodbye and the truck disappeared around the curve and headed out for the nearby interstate that would take them to El Paso, and out of Texas. June was excited. She was just as excited about the trip itself as meeting her father. Here she’d been married only a short time and she was taking her second trip to a fantastic place! She eased back into the leather “captain’s” chair of the truck and listened to the radio as the miles rolled off. The desert became more, and more barren, if that were possible, and soon they were through El Paso, and heading across New Mexico. After about eight hours they stopped at a motel for the night. Mike had brought some beer, and some strawberry wine coolers for June and they settled into a night of HBO.

The next day the trip continued and by that evening they were in Vegas, looking for the casino where June’s father dealt Blackjack. They checked into a hotel, but found that actually going to the casino would be hard, as both of them were not twenty-one years old as yet. June found the casino, however and asked one of the people who worked there to ask her father to come and see her.

The man appeared shortly at the door. He was dressed well, as were all of the employees of the establishment. He had the same blonde hair that June had, and even had blue eyes. He was shorter than Mike, but stocky.

“You wanted to see me?”

“I’m your daughter. I’m June.”

She just stood there staring. This man was her father. He was her real father. She waited for some great emotion, some bolt of lighting to strike her, but none came. He was also a stranger.

He stood there and stared. “And?”

“And I’ve come to see you.”

“Hon, you’ll have to excuse me. I gotta work right
now. Are you staying here in Vegas?” “Yeah, over at the Sands.”

“Ok, good. I’ll give you a call there.” He reached in his pocket and gave her a piece of paper and a pen, “Write you room number down.”

She wrote the number and returned the paper to him. “You’ll get off soon?”

“About two in the morning.”

“I’ll be up.”

He looked surprised, “Uh, yeah. I’ll call.”

At about two-thirty that night the phone rang. June seized on it. “You up?”


“Ok, I’ll be there in a few minutes, ok?”

“I’ll be waiting.”

About three o’clock the knock came at the door.
June opened it and the man walked into the room. He had loosened his tie and appeared more relaxed than he was at his casino. “Mind if I sit?”

“No, not at all.” She was still captivated by him and sat in a chair opposite the one he chose.
He looked at Mike just coming into the room. Mike shook his hand, and said, “I’m June’s husband. I didn’t have time to introduce myself when we first met.”

“Oh, no problem. I was kinda rushed myself, working and all, you know.”

“Hey, I’m gonna go down and get a sandwich, and let you two get to know each other, ok?”

“That’ll be great. We’ll just sit here and get to know each other.”

Mike left the room and the two looked at each other. There were no words for the longest time and then June spoke, “I’ve thought a lot about you.”

“Well, I wondered about you, too. Never seen you. Didn’t know you were so cute.”

She blushed, “Aw, I’m cute in a Texas way. I ain’t near as good looking as these ladies out here.”

“These women are phony. You are not. You have a freshness to you.”

“Well, what do you think? Are you glad to see me?”
“Sure, I’m glad. Just kinda stunned, that’s all. How’s your mom?”

“Good. She is getting on just fine.”

“She still looks like you?”

June laughed, “No, she’s done got fat, but don’t tell her I told you that, she’ll be mad at me. They tell me she used to look just like me.”

He leaned back, “Yeah, she did. She was real cute, just like you. Pretty as a picture. She still living with that plumber guy?”

“Ray? Yeah, and they are married now.”

“No foolin’? How long?”

“Right after I was born. Ray wanted me to have,”
she trailed off trying to avoid what she was just about to say.

“A last name? Hey you can say it. I kinda took off on ya, didn’t I?”

“I didn’t say that.”

“You didn’t have to. So what’s your last name now, being married and all?”


“Fine name. Nice name. They built that neighborhood out there, didn’t they?”

“The Bend, yeah. Big houses.”

“Heard Willie Nelson played golf there.”

“Lot’s of people play golf there. They’re always coming through the area.”

He looked her up and down. “So, what do you want to do while you’re out here?”

“Well, just found out today that I can’t do much. I’m only seventeen and I can’t do much of anything.”

“Well, you can see Hoover dam. You can watch some of the shows. There’s a few things you can do. I’ll get you some tickets so you and your husband can do a little something. Can’t have you coming to Vegas and going to the library.”

“Why’d you leave?” She was surprised that she’d blurted it out like that. Suddenly, without warning.
He looked shocked. He’d been trying to be so cosmopolitan, and now this little girl had put the question right out there in front of him. It was a question she’d wanted to ask for a long time, and now it had to be answered.

“Can’t we talk about that another time?”

“No, let’s talk about it now. Why’d you leave my mom when she was pregnant?”

He leaned back, “Well, first off, I didn’t know for sure if she was pregnant. Second, I wasn’t real sure if it was mine.”

June felt her face get hot. “What are you saying?”
“I’m saying your momma was a west Texas firecracker. You think I was her only boyfriend? She was out every Saturday night, heck, every Friday night too, for that matter. Girl, we weren’t together more than two or three times.”
June could feel her heart speed up. “Are you my real father?”

He laughed, “Well, there’s at least a chance. I mean you got blue eyes, but heck, so do half the people in town here. I think I’m you’re father, but to be honest, I just don’t know.”

She started to well up to cry, and he said, “Aw now, don’t cry. You just gotta grow up. You come busting out here wanting to meet me without no invite at all. Hon, I was just the most exciting person your momma ever met. She told you I was your father because it made her feel better. I was just the one who was gone, that’s all. She probably didn’t want to face the fact that she was pregnant by some broke-ass cowboy in west Texas. Heck, she even had an affair with that old man Stillwell about the same time. His wife had cancer and was dying and she was cleaning up his house for him. I heard she had a little fling with him. He might be your father for all I know!”

June reached for a tissue and wiped her eyes. “I guess I got a lot to learn. I’m sorry.”

“Hey, don’t be sorry. If I ever did have a little girl, I’d want her to be just like you. I wish I were your father. Now the offer of seeing the shows still holds, ok. If you and your husband want to then I’ll show you around when I’m off, ok?”

She composed herself, “That’s ok. We’ll just look around town and go back to Texas tomorrow.”
“Oh, c’mon now, don’t be like that. You came out here for the truth, didn’t you?”

“Just leave.” She was surprised at how firm she was, and how much she sounded like Claudette now.

He sat up and looked at her, “Yeah. I guess I should.”

She looked him in the eye. “I never want to hear from you again. I never want to see you again. You are nothing to me. You are a user. That’s all you are, and that’s all you’ll ever be. My momma was beautiful! She’s a sight better than whatever you got now. I’m sorry if I bothered you at work. I am June Montgomery! You are a piece of shit!”

He looked into her eyes and said, “June, everyone’s got to have something to believe in. Your mother had nothing but a sandy patch of west Texas, and no future. She was messing around with old man Stillwell, and his wife was dying. She knew that the situation would end, and she’d be right back where she started. I’m not a family man. I’m not evil, hon; I’m just a man who knows I’d never be able to put up with kids, and a regular job, and all that goes with it. If your mother is happy with that plumber, and has been all these years, then she’s a damn sight better off than she would have been with the likes of me.”
He stood up and reached to hug her, but she drew back and said, “Don’t touch me! Don’t you ever touch me!”

Mike was coming back into the room just as the man was leaving, “Going so soon? I brought some food.”

“Gotta get home. Hope you and your wife have a nice visit to Vegas, son.”

He left and Mike looked at June, “What’s wrong?”

“Just take me home, Mike. Let’s just go home.”

I Am A Democrat

Fri, 05/17/2019 - 6:18am

Are Americans As Dumb As North Koreans? When something powerful and awful takes up an existence in our lives without any apparent reason, or logical explanation, we often go out in search of an answer. Generally speaking, when we apply deductive reasoning to the facts that we gather on our quest for knowledge, we are successful in understanding what makes the new problem work, and can then begin the task of fixing it.

I have identified politically as a democrat since high school, without being overly active in politics. With the exceptions of serving as precinct chairman, distributing flyers, or making telephone calls, I have mostly been an average armchair party affiliate. I live a very normal, median lifestyle, and am moderately active in my community’s efforts to be and to remain a good place to live. I am in every way a law abiding citizen, and most of the money I set aside for charity goes to police, veteran, or animal relief funds; So why do so many people hate me?

It wasn’t until I joined Facebook that I learned the true scope of a poisonous, vitriolic hate that runs deep in the veins of roughly half of the nation for anyone who identifies as a democrat. I was stunned to learn that people I have never met would gladly punch my face repeatedly for not throwing confetti in the air every time president Trump or his administrative team comes up with yet another way to demonstrate that America is a ship without a helm.

I admit, before Facebook, there were clues. I was fired twice during Obama’s terms for being a democrat. The persons who fired me were as unpleasant as their powers of social and economic violence allowed them to be. Each of the two employers went to as much effort to harm me as means allowed them, going out of their way to inflict as much damage on my career as possible. FYI, if you work in Texas, or Georgia, you can be fired for being a democrat, and you will not receive benefits.

Once, during Obama’s first campaign I was attacked while I was riding my bicycle to the gym by two men in a pickup truck with a machete: the reason was an Obama for president campaign button pinned to my backpack. Throughout the attack both men cursed me and threatened my life. Fortunately I came to no serious harm, as they were drunk, and pretty lousy fighters, even with a machete.

A second attack came just a month later when a prominent older businessman in my neighborhood ran my bicycle off the road with his Lincoln Navigator, nearly killing himself in the process. The man, in his later seventies I learned, suffered a heart attack as he was striking and kicking me. Although I myself was not seriously injured, the sheer hatred, and the incoherent violence of his screams and shouting shocked me to the core. This was a man I exchanged waves and pleasant small talk with from time to time. The police potentially considered the attack as provoked by my visibly worn campaign material, and they actually thought about charging me. Apparently the most heinous aspect of my behavior was that my route to the store took me past an elementary school where the eyes of small children might have been exposed to Obama propaganda.

Oh, and then there is the fact that I cannot vote early or absentee, as they have thrown my vote out once, as I voted for a democrat. After Facebook…if general life is like walking in a contained, familiar environment, Facebook is like interstate driving in a dual metro area during the worst hours of driving. My first attempts at Facebook were like playing the game frogger. I was usually roadkill well before reaching the other side of the road. I finally got the hang of it, filling my page with such beauty, humor, comfort recipes and science as I could find, but, alas, it was too little too late. It was my past you see. I had written many articles, posts, and shared memes, all of which, while eschewing Hillary, had a democratic slant. I quickly learned that Facebook assigns people to a certain pasturage, and nothing I posted was overlooked for a drive by smear, including pictures of family birthdays, weddings, and, well, you know.

I gave up my facebook page at the urging, no, make that the begging, of my children. Apparently my democrat identity was harmful to their careers also. So much for the first amendment. I mean, we live with the fact that our children are hostages to fortune; it’s why companies prefer to hire people with kids, but when that cuts into your Constitutional rights, it’s time to get out the bug spray.

Nothing I have been able to unearth has given me any understanding of this mindless, ravenous hatred toward democrats. I have asked everyone I dared to ask about it, and the most frequent answer I got was “I don’t know, I just hate them.”. None of these haters has any kind of coherent explanation for their hatred, yet they feel hatred; for me.

Finally I caved in and asked my writing partner. I know, I should have asked him earlier right? I get it, he’s a republican, so he should be able to answer that for me easily right? But, I didn’t want to ask him. We have been in one enterprise or another for fifty years, and I didn’t want to upset an equilibrium that continuous. Turns out, I should have asked him sooner. “It’s Obama.” He said. What about Obama? I asked. His belief is that the republicans want an unspecified amount of payback for eight years of Obama.

At first I did not understand, so I called a conservative friend of mine in South Dakota, and he unraveled this for me: from Reagan’s presidency forward, a belief was birthed in our social media ( yes, we had social media in the seventies too; remember how before sundown the day Challenger exploded the jokes that went from the east to the west coast? ) that stupid science projects, welfare queens and the like were being funded at the expense of the guy whose family was struggling upstream at two hundred dollars a week. The term “taxpayer expense” had become a description of tax expenditures borne by the low to middle class. It was a lie then, but in time it became true, as our state became a tool available exclusively to the ruling class (that’s really wealthy folks) as Joe Stalin once remarked so aptly.

As the power to rule was drained away from We The People and awarded to those people who
possessed wealth and privilege, more and more of the burden of taxes fell on the poor and middle class. Hell, I have seen it people! Like you, my taxes have been raised every time the taxes on the ultra wealthy have been cut; the shortfall has to be made up by someone. Make no mistake, Romney Care and Obama Care were paid for in the main by the middle class. We had forty four million people with no health care in America, and someone had to fund a solution. Since no politician was going to even propose tax hikes on the wealthy even in the privacy of outer space, it fell to the middle class to fund a health care crisis that was dangerous and embarrassing, as they will fund infrastructure improvements, the military and, well, anything the wealthy tell the congress and the president to pass.

So here is my take: don’t hate democrats for your poverty or your helplessness. Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin knew what ailed our nation; fascism. So for a glorious few years America knew prosperity. For half of the previous century the unions made headway in raising your grandfathers wages, a condition that lasted until the Reagan presidency, when our government began the process of becoming corrupt lap dogs for the ultra rich, both Republican and Democrat. If you want to hate someone, hate yourself! I know I cannot completely forgive myself for being a Reagan campaign worker; I was so deceived by Ted Koppel and his nightly portion of lies, drivel and libel that I bought the “where’s the beef” B.S., right up until Reagan came out and said he was going to put the working man in his place. Yassuh mista Reagan!

Put memes out on social media with your own faces on them, because you too bought the lies. You listened to Rush, you listened to Glenn, admit it, you loved Dr. Laura, and you passed that poisonous drek on to your friends and family, and they in turn voted for lower and lower taxes on the only people that should be paying taxes; The stinking rich!!The end is not in sight. In 2020 we will get Biden or Trump, a sure formula for more of what is killing us in either case. So what do you say? Can we march to the gallows in some measure of respect because we’re all damn sure gonna hang together!

Trinity Student Council Votes Chick-Fil-A Off Campus –

In another example of the stranglehold leftists have on college campuses, the Student Council at San Antonio’s Trinity University voted to remove the Chick-Fil-A restaurant from their school because it is “not inclusive.” The Trinity Student Council, according to the leftist weekly publication The San Antonio Current, is following the example of the SA City Council who terminated the Chick-Fil-A contract at the SA Airport for the same reason.

The alleged “lack of inclusion” is a criticism of the Chick-Fil-A owners who are Christians and who believe in traditional marriage. However, the restaurant hires and serves anyone and everyone without discrimination. This action by the Trinity Student Council is religious discrimination because leftist and LGBT activists oppose the owners based on their religious beliefs.

This action is also an example of leftist minority tyranny. Some students on the TV news expressed opposition to the Chick-Fil-A removal, but the Student Council acted without full consent of all the students.

Citizens should worry when college student governments act like tyrants in direct opposition to the U.S. Constitution. While Trinity is a private college, taxpayers should demand to terminate any public funding it receives for their violation of the 1st Amendment.

Tolerance runs in one direction for leftists on college campuses. Recently, a group of leftists at Texas State in San Marcos created a confrontation with police when they attacked a student wearing a MAGA hat. Now the Texas State Student Council wants to ban that police from the campus for inciting violence.

Leftists on college campuses must be challenged and stopped, or taxpayers should stop funding for student loans, research grants, and radical teachings. Schools that don’t honor the Constitution should not receive public money. The Butcher Shop

The Making of a Pedophile

The Making of a Pedophile

Not guilty in the eyes of the law does not mean innocent. It means the guilt could not be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt. It means twelve men and women, good and strong, could not come to an agreement based on the evidence shown in court.

You’ve all seen it. It doesn’t matter if you saw it on “Law and Order” or in an actual trial. The theatrical presentations (If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit) the judge telling the jury to unhear something that they just heard, or the accused sitting there in the orange jumpsuit.

Beside murder, about the worse charge that can be leveled on someone is pedophilia. Even worse than rape. In murder, especially in Texas, the victim might have needed killing. Rape of a grown woman? How did it happen! Why did she drink with the man in the first place? There is always an angle. But the abuse of a child? No defense. And, sadly, in a lot of cases no evidence, other than a simple statement that someone touched someone “there!”

So you end up with emotional testimony, little girls crying on the stand, and prosecutors performing better misdirection than Penn and Teller. Tugging at the heartstrings of the jury, fathers, mothers, grandparents, who see their own children in place of the victim on the witness stand. And the accused? No facial expression will do. If he appears relaxed the jury will think he’s making light of the whole thing. If he appears nervous, then he’s scared. Angry? A monster, but no matter, in the jury room he is guilty!

The Butcher Shop is following just such a case. In a series of articles by many authors we will lay out just how the state will “make a pedophile.” His guilt or innocence will hang in the balance. What we will examine is the court proceedings, police and yes, the evidence and witnesses.

We at the Butcher Shop do not all agree on this case. We range from guilty to not guilty to somewhere in between, but we have an uncanny way of getting at the truth. The truth beyond tampered evidence, theatrical prosecutors of claims of innocence. And the truth will set you free!
