Rules When Debating a Liberal

Fri, 10/06/2017 - 12:10pm

The rules when debating a liberal are not complex. To be perfectly honest the words “debate” and “liberal” labor the syntax when trying to fit them into the same sentence. To debate implies discussing two opposing views, each with some merit in order to arrive at some conclusion. Debates, such as the one between Christopher Hitchens and Al Sharpton have no clear winner, the audience having decided what they believe beforehand, and are simply there to cheer their champion on. There are no dramatic “knockouts,” with one man trying to prove the existence of God, and the other trying to prove a negative. The best you could hope for is the rapier wit of Hitch embarrassing Sharpton, or for the faithful, vainly hoping the reverend would walk across a swimming pool, but the evening was far more entertaining than listening to some guy expound the flat earth theory.

Then there’s the definition of just what a liberal is. Back in my day liberals hung around San Francisco, played guitars, the girls were pretty, and well, were liberal, if you know what I mean. They were for peace and love. They smoked a lot of dope, and about the deepest thing you’d hear come out of their mouth was, “Everything’s so green!” Today’s liberal has left that road, ran through a fence, and is racing through a cornfield straight for a cliff. In 1968 a liberal wanted peace, and be left alone. They’d be happy to eat your food, but preferred to live in the park. The new improved liberal wants to steal your food, kill your dog, burn your house down, and steal your car. This transition occurred long about the time they took the flowers out of their hair, and put on a mask. Also, there’s the LBGTQ thing. If that “gender” is supposed to be all inclusive of the movement why are their marches invariably led by bull dykes? Security, I guess.

The political philosophy of the liberal now has become focused. Hate Trump! If Donald Trump were to give free ice cream to everyone in the country the liberals would complain that republicans got a bigger bowl, and illegal immigrants should have been served first. THIS is what you’re debating! You can get through the veneer of their logic right readily. You can always tell when you arrive at that point because they retreat to three word slogans, born of an illogical premise, laced with personal insults and vulgarities. Since their reasoning is based on Hillary’s book, What Happened the debate has basically ended at that point, but the vernacular can drone on for hours because they haven’t quite given up the dope thing yet, that remnant of liberal days gone by. You’ll want to discuss border security, they prefer to scream about some pigeon crap encrusted stature in the city park that’s still fighting the Civil War. The entire purpose of the liberal debate plan is to wear you out or shout you down. Having a poorly developed frontal lobe makes logic and humor totally useless, and forget about metaphors, a word most liberals cannot spell.

The bottom line on rules and methods to be used when debating a liberal is DON’T! There’s nothing to see there, just move along. Remember back in school when you were taught the history of man? Well, there were these critters called Neanderthals. They grunted, farted, and clubbed their way across Europe for an impressive amount of time, but then some guys called Cro Magnon came along and before long the Neanderthals were reduced to fossils, all but a smidge of DNA that survives in present day liberals. As they knuckle walk through life they simply refuse to see the Cro Magnon in the White House or the hoards of modern men an women who put him there, and all the screaming, cussing or grunting will not change that. How do you debate a liberal? Bring peanuts and cast them on the floor. That usually works.

Plantational

Thu, 10/05/2017 - 9:04am

Plantational. Write that word down, there’ll be a quiz later. That was the word used by Perquita Burgess when describing Bill O’Reilly’s demeanor. Aside from her other concerns about his actions, burps, farts, grunts, and a preference for “hot chocolate,” she invented a new word to describe his overall view of the black race, plantational! My word! That’s not playing the race card, that’s stacking the deck.

No other nation in history has had as much trouble with its slaves as has the United States. Couldn’t keep ‘em, couldn’t let ‘em go, can’t reason with them, can’t even discuss the subject openly because no one understands the “black experience” and we all have white guilt because we’re PLANTATIONAL! The memory of slavery is so ingrained into black DNA that it pre-empts everything! You can’t even discuss the weather without having to be reminded that someone’s great, great, great whatEVER might have picked a boll of cotton at sometime during their life, it’s all Trump’s fault, and we’re plantational. Now bear in mind the only cotton Ms Burgess ever picked was out of her closet.

Burgess went on to expound her views on The View. Oh my LIVING god! Now there’s a combination for ya! Snow flakes and hot chocolate! Just add Vodka and VOILA! One glass of pure, unsubstantiated, race baiting BULLS#%T! Hey, I’m “plantational,” what do I know? As Bill O’Rielly was led to the gallows tweets began to float around, completely ignored by the main steam media discussing the real Ms Burgess.

“In another document, a social media user thought to be Burgess tweeted on Nov. 24, 2012: “… up until 10 years ago Laurence Fishburne could get every oz. of my hot chocolate.”

Addressing that tweet, Bloom stated: “Ms. Burgess has used many terms to refer to herself, including on occasion ‘bitch’ and the N word. That does not give others – especially her superiors in her workplace – permission to use offensive language about her.”

Now it seems she’s run afoul of the law. She allegedly threatened her current boyfriend, telling him she was going to tell the cops that he hit her with a gun. In a story from NewsMax, and I quote: According to the police document, Burgess called authorities and alleged her boyfriend had struck her in the face with a gun. Police said when they arrived at the scene Burgess “appeared intoxicated.”i asked her where the gun was, and if she had been assaulted. Ms. Burgess stated there was no gun, and he didn’t assault me!”

You can’t make this stuff up, folks. Black folk are so immersed in slavery it is unfathomable. Not even the Jews carry such a load. They just came up with Passover. Perhaps we should have a holiday like that. Sit around a table, drinking Thunderbird wine, and a Baptist preacher holds up a cotton bill. As for Burgess? Looks like it’s back to the plantation for her.

Sensible Gun Laws

Wed, 10/04/2017 - 9:11am

Sensible Gun Laws. Folks, that is what you call an oxymoron. Kinda like saying, “Please pass me the piano.” America is not Britain. America is not Australia. America is America. The history of the founding, and development of the United States is unique and unlike any other. Everyone came here after a long boat ride, be it Mayflower or slave ship, but we are in the same boat now. And we brought guns! Even the pious pilgrims, just looking for a place to pray, had to set their blunderbusses down first before bowing their heads. Even Porter Rockwell put down his Book of Mormon, and picked up his Dragoons as the final answer in most arguments.

America was founded upon individual liberty. Back in the old country the king owned all the deer, and you dare not partake lest thou be drawn and quartered. Very little you could do because the king owned all the swords, too! The idea that each man is sovereign unto himself is a uniquely American idea. When you are sovereign unto yourself it only goes to follow that you must maintain that sovereignty, and you simply cannot do that with words alone, there must be a reckoning upon interlopers.

There are those on the left who point out that carrying a gun would have been in little use that terrible night in Las Vegas, but if the crowd had been the Second Armored Division from Fort Hood, they too would have sustained casualties from a well positioned sniper firing down at them from a concealed position. It’s amazing how much SnowFlakes THINK they know about tactical response. Millennials simply never lived through Vietnam, the Gulf War, and they only read about 911 in a history book IF the school taught history instead of Understanding Trans-sexuality! That is the paradox of ANTIFA. Gun toting hippies. Go figure.

It is insane to propose that the solution to gun violence is to take the guns away from the law abiding population so it can’t defend itself from the criminals who have, and always will have guns! The police are there to serve and protect. If they are standing next to you in a crises there is a slim chance they’ll protect you IF the gun is pointed at them, also, but most times they’ll just serve you with that little piece of chalk they carry around in their pocket, or string yellow tape for the edification of CNN. Yellow tape is always a good thing. It says, POLICE LINE. DO NOT CROSS! It should say, ONCE AGAIN, A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT!

There are those who shouldn’t be allowed to have guns. The guy in a straight jacket, foaming at the mouth, and trying to bite the noses off all the nurses and interns probably shouldn’t have a gun. A police officer, of course, should, but what about the well heeled, retired accountant, who owns multiple homes, and never got a parking ticket? “Well,” says the left, “that’s why background checks are of no value!” The solution? Deprive the entire population of any means of self defense. That’s like killing all the dogs in the country because some kid gets mauled by a Pit Bull in Marietta, California! Verily verily I say unto Thee, all the gun control in the world would not have stopped that millionaire perched on the thirty-second floor in Vegas from acquiring his weapon (s) of choice!

It is virtually impossible to sanitize America of all guns. The left points to the Australia experience. Yesterday I read and article claiming that gun violence there is down as much as fifty percent. It is! The people can no longer shoot back at the thugs kicking in their doors. Makes as much sense as the old time unarmed Bobbies of London. “Stop! Or I’ll say, ‘Stop” again! Never believe statistics in an article. Vet them. I can prove statistically that I’m the sexiest man in Texas, but my divorce records down at the courthouse will put the lie to that quite readily.

America is not like all those other places. It was formed differently, thinks differently, and solves problems differently. It was won by the gun, stands by the gun, and lives by the gun no matter how many “touchy-geeky” girly men wander the streets trying to decide which restroom to use! America is America! Gun Control and sensible gun laws are an oxymoron. Oh, and by the way, just so you know, America ain’t Texas either! <Wink>

Veteran given keys to mortgage-free home

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 7:01pm

U.S. Army veteran Sergeant Demitra Jarrett was ceremoniously handed keys to a home in the Woodforest subdivision Friday morning, an event usually kept private between family members. But Jarrett’s new home ownership was more of a cause for celebration than your typical house closing.

Hers was provided mortgage-free.

Jarrett is the most recent veteran recipient of a fully funded home provided by Operation Finally Home, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to building homes for wounded, ill or injured veterans, and their families. She rolled into the subdivision Friday escorted by Patriot Guard Riders and was greeted by about 100 residents, builders, first responders, and others waving American flags and cheering as they welcomed her to the site of her custom-built, mortgage-free Texas home.

“I just wanted to thank God and thank all of you for being here,” Jarrett told the crowd fighting back tears. “I’d like to thank my family and friends for all the support they give me on a daily basis. I’m proud to say I’m finally home.”

In May, Jarrett was surprised with the news she was receiving the home. And on Friday, little did she know she was in for another surprise – one that hits a little closer to home.

Gary Tesch, president of home-builder Coventry Homes, was about to hand Jarrett the keys to her house, but they were nowhere to be found. He went inside the home to retrieve them and instead came out with Jarrett’s brother, whom she has not seen in five years.

Her brother, U.S. Army Corporal Tramel Peterson, has been deployed and was able to return home just in time to see his sister get her home. Jarrett had no idea about the reunion before she gazed upon her brother, who was donning a sharp-looking uniform and walked with purpose toward his sister.

The Army toughness Peterson sported quickly broke down as the two burst into tears for their first hug in years.

“I couldn’t be more proud to be partnered up with a group like this and giving back by doing so much for the people who do so much for us with the sacrifices they make,” Tesch said.

Jarrett is a single mother who served in the Army from 2002 to 2013, according to her Operation Finally Home caseworker Deb Kane. She suffered a serious traumatic brain injury and back injury from a blast during her first of three combat deployments while in Iraq in 2003. Despite her injuries and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, she returned to Iraq in 2006 and Kuwait in 2007.

In 2012, she was accepted into officer’s candidate school, but due to her deteriorating health condition was unable to attend. She received numerous awards, including the Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal and more.

Today, Jarrett battles lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the tissues and organs, which prompted her need to move to a warm climate. She chose to move to Texas where she was once stationed at Ft. Hood, has family, and can be close to the Houston area medical care she needs.

While she lives with her mother’s assistance, she is pursuing a Master’s degree in psychology and plans to earn a PhD in endocrinology and rheumatology with the goal to cure lupus and to help provide coping skills for fellow veterans coping with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, which she also combats.

Her home is the 132nd house Operation Finally Home has given to veterans mortgage-free, according to Lee Kirgan, vice president of construction for Operation Finally Home.

“Demitra paid a price that she’ll continue to pay for the rest of her life, a price that 99 percent of us haven’t paid,” Kirgan said. “Let’s welcome her to Texas and welcome her finally home.”

The Altar of Political Correctness

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 11:37am

The victims in Las Vegas were sacrificed on the Altar of Political Correctness! It’s as simple as this: No matter where your morals come from, if you have no limits, society breaks down. Destroying the well understood sanctity  of marriage i.e. make a baby, and support it and the mother. Understanding the baby in the womb is a living bring. You are so shocked at the events in Las Vegas, but millions of the unborn being ripped apart for their body parts seems business as usual. All that happened is you had to actually SEE the sacrifice on the Altar of Political Correctness.

Allowing radical groups to curse law enforcement while men such as CJ Grisham are arrested for standing up for the constitution. Allowing religious orders from strange lands to challenge that constitution in the name of the very free speech they seek to destroy, and at the same time inhibiting the freedoms laid out in the Bill of Rights, discounting the value of women and minorities while tricking them into supporting the cause that will result in their very destruction in the name of a goat herder’s god!

The disintegration of our society has been the goal of the dredge of society all along. You wonder why the shots were fired in Las Vegas. Why not? No rules apply. How even conceive such a plan? In a world gone mad it makes perfect sense. The FBI actually has classes you can take online on how to survive an active shooter scenario. The nighttime host, Conan was shocked that his writers actually had a file of his responses after Sandy Hook, and Orlando! We’ve become Romans where the bread and circuses of the NFL was the lead story for days

People must have the comfort of knowing life is in order with reasonable expectations of raising their  children and the family going on after they’re gone. It doesn’t matter if you’re religious or atheist, Mormon or Methodist, we all want the same things.

Stop looking for reasons, false flags, theories or Illuminati hiding behind every bush. Look at yourselves. WE put that man in the window when we looked away for years while the law of our CHRISTIAN land was stomped, and our flag burned.

We must all support our president and his agenda to Make America Great Again. It is not going to be easy. We have behaved as children, and no child likes a whopping. Pull your pants down, and bend over. It’ll only hurt for a little while, and it won’t hurt as bad as taking a bullet while listening to a concert.

Wanna see how crazy it’s got? A LAWYER with CBS actually said the victims got what was coming to them because they were most likely Republicans. In Las Vegas that crowd was black, white, gay, straight, Democrats and Republicans. All sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. Blood on the hands of the NRA? No! Blood on OUR hands. Now let’s put on our big boy (and big girl) pants and get the job done!

DACA: Check Expiration Date Before Relying on Trump Promises

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 9:24am

In May of 2016 Donald Trump casually discarded one of his central campaign promises. I thought it was remarkable. While it was traditional for Republican candidates in former campaigns to wait until after their inauguration to break campaign promises, Trump didn’t even wait until he was the nominee.

Trump had repeatedly declared, “By self-funding my campaign, I am not controlled by my donors, special interests or lobbyists. I am only working for the people of the U.S.!” It was a central element in his early appeal.

Jeb Bush may have been making money calls between naps, but Donald Trump couldn’t be bought or rented.

Then poof, it was gone! Trump began soliciting donations from the same contributors he’d been disparaging only a few rallies before. It was so surprising I found myself agreeing with MSNBC which said,” Trump is taking one of the best arguments in support of his candidacy and throwing it out the window.”

Trump didn’t appear to suffer any damage from going back on his word and he saved money to boot, so for him it was win–win. For conservatives this casual discarding of a foundational promise should’ve been an ominous development.

The campaign finance issue was a crowd–pleaser but it didn’t have a direct impact on voters. Most of the people at his rallies weren’t contributors before or after the expiration of his promise, so the brief controversy was tangential.

Trump’s chief attraction to disenchanted voters was built around attitude: Trump wasn’t politically correct and he didn’t give a damn about what elite cultural arbiters thought.

As far as voters were concerned specific issues and their relevance were judged on whether or not the topic fit into the general aura of Trumpismo! For many Deplorables it was personality first — policy second.

But what if it was all attitude and arrogance and the issues that were central to our decision to vote for Trump were just so many applause lines at rallies he’s long forgotten?

Trump has been waffling on “Day One” issues since the end of the campaign. He said he’d move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Then he changed his mind. Trump said he would withdraw from the Paris agreement and then went back and forth for weeks on what should have been an easy decision. Trump said it was time to get out of Afghanistan and then decided to buy into the failed nation–building policies of the Bush that got elected.

Those are bad enough, but his seeming decision to go back on one of his bedrock issues and betray his base could make Democrat dreams come true and render Trump a one–term aberration.

During rally after rally Trump promised to “end DACA.” Trump is notoriously sloppy and inexact with language, but I guarantee that not one person in his base interpreted “end DACA” to mean granting illegal aliens the largest amnesty in history.

That appears to be the plan now. Trump tweeted, “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!…..” As someone pointed out, more DACA beneficiaries have enlisted in MS–13 than have joined the military. Trump has owned casinos so he should know when one’s luck runs out, it’s time to go home.

That applies to DACA, too.

Trump has surrounded himself with functionaries whose political advice would have prevented him from winning the nomination, to say nothing of the presidency. Trump appears to have convinced himself that allowing DACA participants to stay in the US without citizenship isn’t amnesty, but for Trumpistas that’s a distinction without a difference.

Before he cratered on DACA Trump made a number of appearances with Angel Moms, mothers who had suffered the death of a child at the hands of an illegal alien. Angel Moms were great props and gave Trump cover when the OpMedia criticized him for his promises to crack down on illegals.

Now the relationship isn’t so heavenly. Angel Mom Sabine Durden told Breitbart, “…the news about DACA receiving amnesty feels like a horrible nightmare and if true, betrayal of the worst kind.”

Mary Ann Mendoza explained, “President Trump needs to stand firm and keep his promises not only to us Angel Moms and Dads but to All Americans.”

Mareen Maloney agreed, “It is reprehensible that President Trump would go back on his campaign promises to the American’s who elected him, especially the Angel parents and families, to make a DACA deal with Democrats.”

Trump once boasted during the campaign, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Maybe so, but I wonder how many campaign promises he can trash on Pennsylvania Avenue before voters decide they’ve been had?

Drain the Swamp

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 4:13am

In America today most people choose their favorite brand of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel based on the charisma of the newsreader and don’t waste their time tuning into other news options.

What are the criteria for their choice of a news outlet? Does the news reader look or sound authoritative?  Are they better looking?  Do they have a more pleasing voice?  Are they a Male?  Are they a female? Are they Gay? Are we not sure?  Whatever the reason, it isn’t because they say anything different.  It often sounds like they all have the same writers and story selectors.  The content is no different.

Do you want to hear the story about how the Republicrat Elite is going to stop the Trump agenda before or after you hear the story about how the Donald is not fit for the highest office in the land or after?  Do you want to learn about the latest polls that show everyone hates Trump before or after you hear how Trump the Traitor colluded with the Russians before or after you hear about the insane proposals of the racist homophobe misogynist Trump to build a wall, stop the terrorists from moving next door, or starve the poor?  Perhaps the line-up of the stories is slightly changed from one news clone to another but that’s about it.  All hate Trump all the time.

When I have a chance encounter and what passes for conversation with so many Kool-Aid drinking low information voters i.e progressive induhviduals the conversation usually goes like this:

Me: What do you think about _______ (fill in the blank)?

Progressive Induhvidual: Repeat what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, etc. has said recently stated as if this was their independently arrived at a personal opinion.

Or if they’re a Conservative Induhvidual: Repeat what Fox, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, National Review, etc. has recently said.

It’s almost impossible to find anyone who has actually read any books on topics of importance such as economics, politics, sociology, or the History that ties them all together.

Several times a year I attend meetings that are filled with nothing but PhDs, professors, and university administrators.  All content experts in these very subjects as well as many others.  The results are basically the same.  The death of critical thinking has led to a deafening silence in the area of actual personal opinion, a dearth of dialogue, and a collapse of conversation.

The American people, who at the time of the Founding saw blacksmiths discussing with candle makers the pros and cons of constitutions and the meaning of liberty or carpenters debating with plumbers the need for a free economy versus the need for public works.  Just read the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers, look at the level of thought and speech and ask yourself, “How do the public debate, and newspaper articles of contemporary America match up?”  Today the public debate takes place at about a 3rd-grade level compared to the graduate school of those earlier days.

What happened?  Back then there weren’t public schools.  Churches and families educated their own.  Today after generations of highly funded and severely structured public education we’ve successfully dumbed ourselves down to the lowest common denominator.

Look at the late great Bernie Sanders revolt which was short-circuited and contained by the ballot fixing elite in the Democrat Party.  Or look at the Trump Revolution which overwhelmed the elite in the Republican Party.  Either way, it’s obvious that we taxpaying entities who inhabit flyover country whether of the right or left have had enough of the bi-coastal elite that’s driving us over the cliff into the third world.  Since their favorite empty pantsuit blew the election and she can’t carry the water for the donor class all the way to the bank obviously the elite controlled media has dropped their camouflage of objectivity and is all in to make sure Trump is destroyed.

At least there was one pseudo surprise in the Hollywood scripted replay of Primary Colors the Distaff Edition.  After all of the frothing at the mouth, Bernie supporters did.  After his highly motivated supporters were so brave they booed or turned their backs at the Democrat Party Spectacle in Philadelphia on their anointed queen.  Low and behold their fearless leader fell into line and surprise, surprise, surprise supported the mistress of manipulation.  Then just as evidence surfaced that yes, the entire primary exercise was rigged from the beginning the mind-numb robots of the left who chanted and cheered for Bernie stood in line to cast their rationally considered and highly principled vote for the very person who engineered the fix, took her money and marching orders from the crony capitalists, and is arguably the most corrupt person to ever run for the presidency.  After the election, Bernie, the man of the people bought his third house and settled in a well-feathered bed until next time he’s needed to attack his fellow millionaires and billionaires.

Who could have seen this coming except a blind man in a dark room with no media access?

The pre-programmed electorate combined with the usual fraud, imported voters and all the dead people who never leave the voting rolls of the corrupt Democrat City fiefdoms, marched in lockstep to the polls to hand America lock-stock-and-barrel to the Clinton Crime Family.

However, the November Miracle happened and instead of the Sleazy Don following the totally corrupt Donna back into the White House, the Donald won.

Enough people swallowed the red pill and were willing to at least take a shot at shaking things up before we’re swept away by the unregulated immigration invasion and state-sponsored outsourcing that low and behold we didn’t end up with another perpetually re-elected hack.

An old saying goes, “There are only two things that are certain in this life, death, and taxes.”  We’ve all been programmed to accept this as an inevitable truism.  Death to be sure is natural and inevitable.  If you were born you’ll die.  Taxes, however, aren’t a natural thing.  They’re in actuality the forced expropriation of funds from the productive taken through the use of the state’s monopoly on the use of coercive force.  And so, though they aren’t natural and they aren’t inevitable like death or gravity they may in realistic terms given the overwhelming preponderance of government power be unavoidable.

Our country refused to follow the dictates of the elite controlled media. America refused to become the turf of the Sleazy Donna from Chappaqua whose word parsing motto should be the Bart Simpson anthem, “I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me do it! You can’t prove anything.”  We chose not to let the White House once again become Bill’s love nest.  We refused to let the George Soros puppet in heels moves into the Oval Office with her Rolodex of contributors both foreign and domestic.

So what do we have now?  The Cartel and the politicians that follow them around like a children’s pull toy on a string are screeching day and night the Russians!  The Russians!  They have Comey’s BFF installed as the Special Counsel because of Comey’s leaks.  The stage is set for a sequel to the Progressives favorite thriller, “The Witch Hunt of Watergate.”

What’s a freedom loving constitutionalist to do?  How about every time the Progressives issue a subpoena for one of the President’s followers we issue one for a Debbie Wasserman Schultz, or her Pakistani IT money launderer, or Bill Clinton, or Loretta Lynch, or any of the shady characters who actually tried to fix the election.  How about a Special Counsel to investigate all the scandals of the Obummer nightmare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Lois Lerner and the IRS, or the serial unmasking of American citizens for political purposes?

Why should we just roll over and take it?  Why not take it and roll on instead?  We won let’s act like it!

If we don’t stand up after the Miracle in November and demand that the swamp is drained when will it happen?  When Chelsea gets elected?  If we can’t drain the swamp now the swamp is going to drain us right into the sewer of history.

They Take a Knee…We Sing Louder

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 3:59am

Last Sunday, two hundred NFL football players out of the NFL’s total roster of 1700…in other words 11% of all players…defiantly ‘took a knee’ in protest during the playing of our national anthem. Two hundred anti-American seriously overpaid for the most part black players…with a handful of white players thrown in for good measure…disrespected not only our flag, our nation’s anthem and our country, but also disrespected and dishonored those who currently wear our nation’s uniform, and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe and free at home. And to make matters worse, they did it on ‘Gold Star Mothers Day.’

So while this miserable minority of black American citizenry try to claim it’s about racism in today’s America nothing could be further from the truth, but sadly like some incessant virus, a few white players caught this faux bug and knelt and locked arms alongside the black knee takers. And some coaches and even a few white team owners…owners who were most probably afraid of the very black thugs they hired…joined them no matter that some of the protesters raised their fists in what amounts to a Black Panther, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa salute…a salute that is no different in meaning than when the neo-Nazi’s raise their fists in salute of hatred and all things vile.

And they pulled this stunt at ‘work’ so to speak, and in any other profession protesters such as this would be fired…as in protest on your off-time, not on our dime.

Reaching an organized crescendo when last Friday, President Trump created an uproar during a speech in Alabama when he urged NFL team owners to fire any player who kneels during the anthem by saying, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”…and to that, I say that our president got it one hundred percent right. But know this horrific display of anti-American sentiments did not start with President Trump’s words nor with his tweets but started on August 26, 2016, when one Colin Kaepernick ‘took a knee’ and set this whole sorted mess of politicizing what should remain a game into motion.

Claiming he ‘took a knee’…just another way of turning his back on our national anthem, our flag, and our country…because he refused to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” started on the surface anyway, to be what Kaepernick perceived as continued racism and injustices committed against said people of color in America, then morphed into a protest against police brutality…as in the number of young black men killed by white police officers. But while Kaepernick had a right under our First Amendment to do what he did maybe he would not be viewed as just another black thug if he had not done so at ‘work’ while wearing socks depicting police officers dressed as pigs. But what Kaepernick and most of his cohorts just refuse to understand is that more whites are killed by the police than are blacks even though black men are three times more likely to commit violent crimes as are white men…and they do so while blacks make up but 13% of the American population. That folk is a fact whether they like it or not.

But no matter how many true numbers are cited, these young black thugs of football fame still cling to the same so tired old song that white people remain the slave masters lauding over them…keeping them down…that white people were, are, and will always remain racists.

They call us filthy names, accuse us of whatever is the black hate rhetoric de-jour, as they shout…or ‘take a knee’…in protest that white America…that America as a whole…is racist against the black man…and especially against black athletes. But they can shout all the want…they can kneel all they want…but how pray tell are we racist when the NFL itself is comprised of mostly black players…72% in fact…and the NBA is 74% black…yet when combined it is white people who comprise 84% of their game attendance and 83% of their combined fan base. And with white team owners dishing out multi-million dollar salaries to these black thug players how can we be racists when it is white people who are actually paying them their way over-inflated salaries, and it is white people who for the most part go to their games, buy their outrageously overpriced team merchandise, and make heroes out of someone merely throwing or kicking a ball.

And also forgotten by these disrespectful and oh so ungrateful black players is that racism in America was for the most part put to rest until Barack HUSSEIN Obama assumed the office of the presidency that is. Ripping the scar off long-healing racial wounds Obama reignited the cry of racism because he himself, I most assuredly believe, is a racist. Hating his white half because he was not white enough to ‘pass,’ Obama used his black half to set in motion a nefarious plan that some will laugh at first, but in the end, it will hit them as the truth that it is.

Let’s start with the fact that when Obama saw it was advantageous to capitalize on his black half in his chosen field of politics…a field he was groomed for by avowed Communist sorts…the first thing he did was marry a woman as full of hate towards white people as he had…a woman who said before he became president that she had never been proud of this country. Now, remember that Obama at heart is a socialist with strong Communist leanings…free stuff for blacks paid for by whitey…and that he ran for president on a platform of “fundamentally transforming America.” Well, what better way to transform America than to change her culture…to change her identity.

And change us Obama did, and it started with his call for ‘political correctness’ in all we say and do. Do not criticize blacks…do not criticize Hispanics…and most of all do not criticize muslims…for to do so labels you a racist. Turn your back on God…embrace your inner ‘illegal’…it is okay for Planned Parenthood to be the ultimate baby killing machine…socialized medicine is good for your health and well-being…and big brother watching you is for your own good…all became the new battle cry of now changing societal norms. Racial profiling is hate…acts of Islamic terrorism are just muslim boys behaving a bit badly…looting is nothing but a form of reparations that is owed to blacks…and our military must ‘make nice’ to our enemies…these.became not just the new societal norms under this past president but were the very “fundamental transformation” he always had in mind.

In changing the very fabric of what makes American society unique in its greatness…in changing the very meaning of American exceptionalism…Barack HUSSEIN Obama did indeed succeed in “fundamentally transforming” our nation by not only dividing our country but by setting the stage for the right to become wrong and for wrong to become the new mandated order of the day. And he did so via a minority…a very vocal ‘gimmee – gimmee, you owe me’ minority…who now dictate to the majority who must comply or else all things bad will ensue. In other words…mission accomplished…as this very vocal minority…a black thug minority…holds the rest of us hostage…and they are aided by a media who not only feeds into their progressive thug agenda but who actually helps to manipulate and set it as well.

And but one case of media manipulation…remember when the media was all over Tim Tebow when he ‘took a knee’ not in protest of America but in prayer, and how the media ostracized, criticized, and ridiculed him, turning him into a villain of sorts for how dare he pray before a game.

And this media manipulation was assuredly seen once again at last Sunday’s games when.two hundred for the most part black thugs sadly proved that pulling out the ‘race card’ does indeed work. And it was these two hundred thugs who became not only ‘the’ news but who dominated the entire news cycle at the expense of the majority of other players who proudly stood in honor of our country. Two hundred thugs supported by and instigated on by the likes of Anfifa and Black Lives Matter calculatingly stole the limelight with antics right out of a page from Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals.’ Portrayed as heroes when they are anything but, these black players and their subservient white cohorts are actually setting race relations back decades as the anger in white patriots is brewing not so far below the surface…brewing and so ready to explode.

And while this anger is indeed both rightful and called for, I believe it is misplaced in how said anger is being channeled and dealt with, for like with sanctions the call to now boycott games is actually not only counterproductive but serves these America-haters agenda well, as it also hurts the majority of players who stand ‘America strong.’ How so…no matter if one goes to the games or not these overpaid, over idolized, America defaming pieces of thug garbage…and I stand by those words…will still get paid. And let’s not forget that most advertisers will willingly be drawn into the fray for what better advertising for their products bottom line can there be than a sports event that brings in millions of viewers each week…a sports event replete with divisive political drama.

No…boycotts are not the answer…the answer is that when these thugs ‘take a knee’ we patriots in the audience stand tall and proud…right hand placed over our hearts…and sing the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ at the top of our lungs…and that we patriots at home turn our televisions off when this misplaced vile act of defiance starts up sending needed ratings into the tank even if afterward the game itself gets turned back on. Simple solutions at times do work best especially when a strong united message is sent. And remember, the thing these vile sorts hate most is for us to go about doing what we normally enjoy doing while completely ignoring their thug actions. Do not react to them and they lose their voice.

And to take this one step further imagine these black thugs taking center stage…’taking a knee’…at next year’s Olympic games in South Korea where our beloved America instead of shining on the world stage will be ridiculed, condemned, and embarrassed by some of the worst America has to offer…and doing so at a time when we stand on the brink of war with South Korea’s neighbor to the north.

And yes those black athletes who would dare put on such a display at the Olympics…as some shameful sorts did at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics…and those black players now ‘taking a knee’ are indeed some of the worst America has to offer for true red, white, and blue Americans honor her, stand with her not against her, and actually ignore the vile antics of those either playing a game with monies garnered from our collective pockets or those who poorly represent America’s best amateur athletes. And I say no press coverage should be given to any and all who defame her for the press is in this for ratings and corresponding monetary gain alone…good little bought and paid for media whores that they are.

So to me, the bottom line in all this is that if you cannot stand in respect for the nation who has given you so much then not only should you get the hell off the field but get your sorry selves out of our country as well.

Google admits citing 4chan to spread fake Vegas shooter news

Tue, 10/03/2017 - 3:09am

Google News took the unusual step of confirming its use of the imageboard site 4chan as a news source on Monday. The admission followed Google News’ propagation of an incorrect name as a potential shooter in the tragic Las Vegas shooting on Sunday night.

A reporter from tech-news site The Outline posted the full text of an e-mail he received from an unnamed Google representative. Reporter William Turton said that he had not discussed any “attribution terms” before receiving Google’s e-mail, which confirmed that the Google News service was bombed into automatically reposting a false shooter’s name.

The incorrect shooter’s name, which Ars Technica will not repost to reduce any further robo-aggregated hits, began appearing on 4chan’s “pol” board, which is infamous for pushing intentionally inflammatory content. The name appeared on the board when its members began looking through people connected to names that had been mentioned by Las Vegas investigators. One of those people—a sibling of a person of interest who was later cleared by Vegas police of wrongdoing—had social-media attachments to left-leaning subjects such as MoveOn.org and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. Both 4chan and right-wing misinformation sites like Gateway Pundit began spreading the false name as a suspect while calling the person a “far-left loon.” (GP’s article has since been removed, but a Google Cache of it still exists.)

Google News’ statement claims that these false reports landed on the service’s “Top Stories” feed due to a burst of activity for a name that had never received many search attempts. “When the fresh 4chan story broke, it triggered Top Stories, which unfortunately led to this inaccurate result,” the statement reads.

“We use a number of signals to determine the ranking of results—this includes both the authoritativeness of a site as well as how fresh it is,” the statement continues. “We’re constantly working to improve the balance and, in this case, did not get it right.”

4chan’s inclusion anywhere near Google News’ “authoritative” list is a troubling one, since 4chan users have consistently and repeatedly used the site to promote false stories about newsworthy figures. As of press time, Google has not responded to Ars’ request to confirm the legitimacy of this reposted e-mail.

Facebook admitted to a CNN reporter to having the same false information appear on its “Crisis Response” page for “a few minutes” on Monday. “We are working to fix the issue that allowed this to happen,” the Facebook representative told CNN.

Monday’s news follows more than a year of questions about how social-media platforms like Facebook handle propagation of posts either through advertising or automatic, algorithmically selected links.

KISS Stop Concert to Lead Crowd in Pledge of Allegiance

Mon, 10/02/2017 - 5:10pm

KISS showed once again that they don’t just have stars and stripes painted on their faces — but on their hearts too.

Before their encore Saturday night (Sept. 30) at the Gretna Heritage Festival in Louisiana, the classic rock band requested the audience join them in a display of U.S. patriotism by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

“It’s always cool to love your country,” frontman Paul Stanley said, according to a report.

Unsurprisingly, fan response was divided. One supporter tweeted, “KISS just stopped their concert to take a moment to thank the veterans and say the pledge of allegiance. Pretty damn cool.”

While another wrote, “KISS made everyone do the pledge of allegiance before they would do an encore. That was the least rock and roll thing I’ve ever seen.”

This isn’t the first time the classic rockers took time to honor Old Glory.

In Sugar Land, Texas, last week, fans also recited the pledge, as video shared online appears to show most in the crowd, with hands over their hearts, complying with the request. Afterward, Stanley exclaims, “God bless America! God bless our troops!” Watch video below.

A year ago on their Freedom to Rock Tour, the band criticized NFL star Colin Kaepernick for not standing while the national anthem was played before the start of games.

Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over

Mon, 10/02/2017 - 7:35am

Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over! I don’t want to hear this is some kind of false flag! Once again a mad man had vented his wrath upon people he didn’t know, who were doing him no harm. Last night, during a concert in Las Vegas, gunfire rang out as bullets sprayed from the thirty-second floor of a hotel rising above a concert. The main protection was a few palm trees. The police scanner reveals the event as it unfolds  

From the sound of the fire it was a fully automatic weapon. Most rifles fire automatic, meaning you pull the trigger once, you get one round, and you must pull it again. Full auto sprays shells until the magazine is empty, then you pop the mag out, insert another, and continue the carnage. You don’t even have to be a good shot.

The shooter had positioned himself high, a military tactic, giving him an open field of fire, similar to a deer stand. The natural confusion of the crowd, and scant cover provided the perfect victim situation. Swat teams moved in, and in one fashion or another, the active shooter wound up dead. They usually shoot themselves.

This is NOT a gun control debate! We already have laws controlling fully automatic weapons, and shooting strangers has always been illegal. No, this is a societal situation! What forces put the killer in that window? The gun was not the problem. He could have just as easily driven a car through the crowd, which seems to be “in” these days.

The hate, and rage, generated by the last four years has given us this mindset. Homelessness, disparity, and desperation fired those bullets. A man at the end of his rope. The active shooter usually knows that he will be the last victim. He sits quietly, waiting, staring down at the crowd. Then he fires the first round. Then the havoc begins. In about fifteen minutes he hears the SWAT team coming down the hall behind him. He puts the barrel in his mouth. Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over!

Why Left Wing Nuts Get Away with Murder

Thu, 09/28/2017 - 6:10pm

“Once Upon A Time, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away” the left wing of the political spectrum were the vanguard of opposing the globalist warfare matrix. The anti-war movement changed the world in the 1960’s and stopped the bloody carnage in Viet Nam. Judging by today’s standards, that world is forgotten and the replacement culture has an attitude that preserving the empire is necessary no matter how trumped up the rationale is to maintain perpetual conflict. Choose the newest enemy; Jihad Islam, Russian nationalism, Chinese supremacy or North Korean belligerence and any dedicated internationalist can spin an argument why fighting the next war is necessary.

Now we all know just how half-crazed the foreign policy of mentally deranged “Bomber” McCain and his NeoCon warmonger comrades has been over the decades, but what is the excuse from the Looney Left for abandoning their moral argument that underpinned opposition to the establishment’s persistent drive to maintain a permanent war environment?

Remember the Democratic left is the party that purged the righteous and enlightened foreign policy opposition from the likes of Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, and Eric Massa; forcing each from office. Throwing them under the bus is much different from having them sitting in the back of the coach.

While regrettable these expulsions from Congress are consistent with the radical purity litmus tests required to remain within the club of ecumenical warfare. The informative site with accompanied link resources, Neoliberalism as Trotskyism for the rich makes an important point.

“Like Trotskyism, neoliberalism consider the war to impose a liberal-democratic society on weaker countries (which in modern times are countries without nuclear weapons) which cannot give a fight to Western armies are inherently just (“regime change” mentality). So both ideologies are ready to bring revolution to new countries on the tips of (The USA in case of neoliberalism) bayonets.”

Once the resistance to imperialism was seen as a desired objective for liberal wing exponents of the anti-war factions. Sadly, that is no longer the case. The persistent and expansive dominance within the deep state of the most notable NeoCon proponents has worked their way into the entire professional establishment. As the NeoLibs become indistinguishable with the fake conservatives, the liberal cause is relegated to the trash bin.

Doug Bandow writes in Forbes, Americans Should Reject Bipartisan Warmongering: Base Foreign Policy On Reluctance To Go To War and acknowledges the failure the post 911 era.

“After 9/11, President George W. Bush abandoned his campaign pledge of a “humble” foreign policy and instead unleashed America’s military throughout the Middle East, with disastrous results.

Fifteen years and another administration later, the U.S. is more entangled in violent conflicts throughout the world than ever before and there’s no end in sight. The American people understandably have rejected a foreign policy driven by regime change and nation-building.”

Well, this last conclusion is debatable. Has the public truly scorned the interventionist involvement policy?
The grassroots Trump supporters were certainly onboard, but the cold hard fact is that the will of the people has little to do with the design and implementation of foreign policy. Just as President Trump, has been held captive to the careerists from Foggy Bottom.

This brings up the discussion, why is it acceptable in the controlled and manufactured culture for liberals to jump on the train of the arms munitions machine and always get a pass on their bellicose advocacy?

The short answer, they can get away with it in a culture that blames right-wing conservatives for all wars. However, this is not based upon the real historical record. According to Willie Osterweil in the essay, Democrats Are the Real Party of War presents a compelling argument.

“Indeed, all of the major U.S. wars of the 20th century—World War I, II, Korea and Vietnam—were entered by Democratic administrations. Harry Truman, a Democrat, is still the only world leader to use a nuclear bomb on a population. And with the exception of World War II, where almost all anti-war sentiment collapsed after Pearl Harbor, these wars were entered over the objections of the left wing of the Democratic Party. But while the presence of that left wing has guaranteed that anti-war liberals rally to the Democratic side, it not yet stopped a Democratic administration from going to war.

It’s important to face this fact squarely: in the 20th century, it was the Democratic party that was the more aggressive pursuer of foreign wars. You can make whatever claim you like about historical contingency, necessity, or immediate context. None of them should convince anyone that the Democrats, as a party, are opposed to war. They’re not even more opposed to war than Republicans. They are a party of warmongers.

Many of those young anti-war Obama voters learned a hard lesson: when you put your faith, energy or activism into electing Democrats, no matter what domestic policy you support, you’re also putting your weight behind militarism, a crackdown on civil liberties, and foreign wars of aggression. Perhaps the most surprising thing about Obama’s wars, ultimately, is how, despite it all, many continue to hope for change from the Democratic Party.”

Folks, there are no successors to Eugene Joseph McCarthy a Man of Courage. The Democratic Party is every bit of a fraud as the Republican NeoCons. As for the ideological inept supporters of progressive nihilism, they are irrelevant and act as dreadful fools of the Pelosi contingent wing of the sham two-party systems.

The fake news offered up by the corporatist media is so slanted to maintain the protection racket for their heroes and heroines on the left that the condemnation of that other famous McCarthy, “Tail Gunner Joe“, applies to anyone on the right; especially if they propose an American First, non-interventionism populist viewpoint.

Back to, Once Upon A Time, the populism on the left and that of the right shared most of the same basic distrust of the political and economic elites. Not that way anymore. Even the liberal site Vox asks, Why Democrats have no foreign policy ideas.

“Washington’s foreign policy debate tends to be mostly conducted between the center and the right. The issue is typically how much force America should use rather than whether it should use it at all, or how to tweak a free-trade agreement rather than whether it should be accepted at all. Debates over pressing policy issues — from fighting ISIS to the crisis in Venezuela to handling Chinese provocations in the South China Sea — lack a left-wing voice of any prominence.

Dan Drezner, a professor at Tufts University’s Fletcher School admits:

“As progressives, we believe in government. And yet, the logic of a security state tends in directions that are antithetical to things we believe as progressives,” Hurlburt says. “As a security progressive, you’re constantly riding that contradiction, and you’ll never get away from it.”

His conclusions are void of the definite criticism that the Liberal Wing Nuts actually are in basic agreement with the prevailing war imposition objectives of the permanent foreign policy consortium.

So when the self-proclaimed indignation of the pseudo holier than thou libtards rationalize that their complicity in murder comes with the territory, just remember that infamous admission from war criminal, Madeleine Albright in her 60 Minutes interview.

Lesley Stahl, speaking of US sanctions against Iraq: “We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And – and you know, is the price worth it?”

Madeleine Albright: “I think this is a very hard choice, but the price – we think the price is worth it.

Who can or has the will to bring justice to the establishment elites for waging war for their globalist masters? Liberals are virtually immune to the silence of condemning progressives. This “PC” distortion of reality seldom penetrates the bubble of cover-up. When the echo chamber for leftist exemption from responsibility forgoes accountability, the entire society is drained of an opportunity for social justice.

Liberals need to see their faces in the mirror as an enabler for everlasting war. They are the bookends along with the Bush proponents that destroyed any moral imperative for world leadership. The jury is still out on the Trump administration. However, the emphatic shift to the shadow government operatives is most disturbing.

If the left really wants to be the champion of the common man, where is the pushback against a foreign policy that has changed little under Bush, Clinton, Bush Junior, Obama and now Trump?

Bombing the incompliant into submission is not a valid foreign doctrine. The bipartisan gang of warmongers is at blame when the guns explode in a salvo of death. As long as the phony war on terror goes on the net result is that the lasting causality is the body politic of our own nation. Reestablish the anti-war movement as an active vehicle for true national defense by bringing back the troops to our own shore.

Stand for the Flag, Kneel for the Cross

Thu, 09/28/2017 - 1:55pm

The American flag is a symbol of freedom and our National Anthem is the song of freedom recognizing those who fought and died for our freedom.  It is proudly sung before ceremonies and sporting events to bring all Americans together regardless of their differences of religion, race, status, or political view.  The sports arena has always been one place all Americans were allowed to come together to root for their team.

Unfortunately, the NFL has changed everything by the ignorance of Commissioner Roger Goodell when he allowed Colin Kaepernick to protest the National Anthem and the American Flag in 2016 in his protest of “police brutality.”  He disrespectfully wore socks symbolizing police as pigs.  Goodell and others ignorantly call it free speech; but Goodell said, “No” to the Dallas Cowboys who inquired to wear a symbol on their uniform honoring police officers murdered in Dallas.  Goodell also fined Quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) for wearing non-approved clothing forcing RG3 to remove his “Know Jesus, Know Peace” shirt and turn it inside out.

While Goodell enforces some rules, he is not enforcing the NFL League Rulebook pages A62-63 pertaining to the National Anthem which states, “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.””During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in the left hand, and refrain from talking.”  “Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or, the forfeiture of draft choice(s).

Goodell is the son of a liberal New York Senator and he ignored the NFL Rulebook while allowing players to bring their politics to the stadium of “racial injustice.”

This is not about “Freedom of Speech” since the NFL is a business.  Just as the average citizens are not allowed to engage in political protests or political activity while working, neither is the NFL.  Once a player walks onto the field, he is being paid for his services.

These players who exhort their political views in protest at the same time expecting to get paid wealthy checks that America provided them are hypocrites.  If these NFL players feel the need to protest, don’t show up on game day, make your statement, and don’t get paid.  Then you won’t be hypocrites and you can go find a venue and lead your own movement.

Professional athletes are supposed to be examples for the youth of America.  These NFL players are a disgrace, except for some few exceptions.  One exception is Pittsburg Steelers’ Alejandro Villanueva, who as an ex-Army Ranger broke away from his team to stand solo in recognition of flag and country.  Afterward, sales of his jersey soared to number one, while his coach criticized his patriotism.

I have shut off the NFL network and I will no longer attend any game where a player feels he can make a divisive political statement regardless of the sport.  I have better things to do than to watch political football.

The only player that should kneel are those players who meet at midfield following each football game to join together, kneel, and pray to Jesus.

These are the real players.  They are the ones that stand for the flag and kneel for the cross.

How Can You Support The Confederate Flag?

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 4:57pm

How can you support the Confederate flag if it’s racist?

Slavery was a part of global culture, internationally and nationally, North and South. The first slave traders were black African chieftains selling off their captured prisoners to the white Europeans. Slavery STILL EXISTS TODAY in jungle and desert countries, not to mention worldwide sex trafficking, and there’s nary a Confederate Flag, a Nazi goose-step, or a burning cross to be seen or heard in these environments. Discrimination is a global phenomenon.

The British flag, from which sprang the American colony when we defected to this country from England on the Mayflower, subjugated every nationality it came into contact with. Think of the British infiltration into India, and how Britain decimated the Irish Gaelic culture. AMERICAN slave ships never flew the Confederate flag, they flew the US national flag. This is the same flag that fluttered as forebears killed off the Indians of the Plains, the Irish and the Chinese on the railroads, and in the 20th century, prejudiced against the blacks, the Jews, and the handicapped and feeble-minded. You don’t see these people whining needlessly for reparations years after the fact. They’ve acclimated themselves and adjusted to the change of the times. The Blacks, Indians, Chinese and Jewish people are oftentimes prosperous when given the means to succeed, and when the Government stops robbing the coffers of Social Security to cover their liars’ debts to undeserving foreign powers, we cripples might get that chance as well. For the moment, I’m not going to sit on my ass waiting for that day. I’d die of starvation.

Had history not happened as it did, all of the complaining demographics might still be in their countries of origin today, and some of them assuredly wouldn’t enjoy the freedoms of expression and prosperity which they have attained living in this Western culture. Don’t get uppity and bite the hand that feeds you. You’re only fueling the fires of discrimination that you continue to incessantly bemoan. You’re only continuing to pick off the scab of the problem and then throw more of a tantrum because you’re confused as to why the wound doesn’t heal. The rebel flag is not the issue of bony contention. YOU, the uneducated masses of the 21st century, are the only problem in this historical equation. I support the Confederate flag because all of history is full of imperfections, and I’m not going to be guilted into shame for one flag simply because a solitary group of offended persons wants to pitch a childish hissy-fit about it. If you advocate for historical decimation and obscurity in ANY WAY, you’re no better than the Islamic State, the Nazi fascist, or the Communist regime. You don’t deserve to breathe free air. You don’t deserve to be an American citizen.

School Bullies

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 12:44pm

Bullies at school have always been there. There was this kid back when I was in the fourth grade, Vince, I still remember his name. Vince would track me down during recess and pick, hit, and insult me to the point that I avoided going out with the other kids, hiding in the bathroom. He found me there, too. Well, this was 1950’s Louisiana, and with a little discovery, one day I found Vince had a glass jaw.

His was an open and shut case of gross intimidation. Find a smaller kid and threaten him to get his lunch money. There’s another style, more subtle, but much more dangerous. To belong is most important to a child. To be accepted by peers is job one when the boy or girl enters school, leaving the familiar behind. When other children hold the keys to the popularity door you have an element of control. What follows is a type of hazing, a series of tests, if you will. Tasks assigned to prove worthiness to be part of the group, or club.

The bullied child doesn’t know they’re being bullied. All they know is they aren’t good enough, but if they can rise to the occasion maybe, just maybe they’ll be able to eat the crumbs from their master’s table. Their value as a person is fully controlled by the peer group which in turn is orchestrated by a bully. The requests range from meeting and talking with the group all the way up to stealing from mommy’s purse, and meeting in the park to distribute the loot.

The victim has low self esteem at this point, and approval is paramount. What you get is a beautiful, intelligent little girl who would occasionally swipe a cookie, stealing two hundred dollars to hand out at the city park restroom. The victim is never allowed into the group, that was never the plan. A group formed with a mission of looking down its nose at other kids has all of its members from the onset, and the bully who runs the whole thing has no intention of allowing a possible replacement for their position to join the ranks.

My point of telling you these things is to alert you to your child’s world. The little girl doesn’t know she’s beautiful. She doesn’t know she comes from a family of means. She doesn’t know that she’s in the top IQ percentage. All she knows is the one thing she lacks is acceptance by her school mates. She’s willing to run away from home to get it, and if she’s denied the results can be terrible! Listen to your child. Pay attention to friends. Get to know parents. Alert the school. Childhood is a bumpy road, and don’t think a child doesn’t feel the bumps just because you can’t see them!

COME RALLY AROUND THE FLAG

Wed, 09/27/2017 - 10:06am

The movement which has swept through the NFL in refusing to stand and show respect for the American flag is misguided at best and subversive at worst. These highly paid NFL players have become wealthy because of the American free enterprise system. Yet like spoiled children these foolish players flaunt visceral hatred toward the very nation and American values, which have given these miscreants such abundance.

NFL players refusal to stand and salute Old Glory not only disrespects the American republic, American traditions and American values, but more profoundly demonstrates shameful contempt for the underpaid brave soldiers of the armed services and law enforcement. More searching is these pampered overpaid players manifesting outrageous contempt for the underpaid members of the armed services.

Perhaps, the Johnny Cash song, “ This ragged Old Flag”  most succinctly captures the American feeling towards our national symbol in Old Glory.

Consider the sublime feeling put to pen by Minna Irving.

“A nation thrills, a nation bleeds,

A nation follows where it leads,

And every man is proud to yield

His life upon a crimson field

For Betsy’s battle flag.”

(Minna Irving)

These overpaid spoiled NFL players cannot hold a candle to the United States Marines who raised the American republics flag after the hard won ground on Iwo Jima.

It is the symbol of the marines raising the flag over Iwo Jima which American citizens should revere and hold sacred not the foolish ignorance of certain NFL players lest we forget the sacrifice of these American heros.

Consider the testimony of marine Hamilton, a survivor of Iwo Jima.

Yet, these selfish self-absorbed NFL players disregard the sacrifice and patriotism of men like Hamilton. How dare these overpaid self-centered and pampered players.Francis Scott Key

thought of a better class of Americans. Americans Mr. Key watched dying for the promise of the young American republic. Perhaps, these contemptuous NFL players should go to Canada or other nations to play football-dare say, most Americans no longer want them playing for the NFL or living in America,

Defence Of Fort Mchenry (Stars And Stripes Forever) – Poem by Francis Scott Key

O! say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,

What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,

O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there –

O! say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,

Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze o’er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,

In full glory reflected now shines on the stream –

‘Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave

O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havock of war and the battle’s confusion

A home and a country should leave us no more?

Their blood has wash’d out their foul foot-steps’ pollution,

No refuge could save the hireling and slave,

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave;

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever when freemen shall stand

Between their lov’d home, and the war’s desolation,

Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land

Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto – ‘In God is our trust! ‘

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

Francis Scott Key

Consider a real American and NFL player, a player worthy of the brave soldiers who fought and died for the American ideal and liberty. Former army ranger Alejandro Villanueva of the Pittsburgh Steelers defied his coach and the spoiled NFL protestors as a true American hero and patriot. Watch as this decorated veteran stand up for America.

America saluted Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva by buying his jersey and supporting the ranger.

Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva act was an implicit salute to the flag was a call to all Americans to “ Rally Round the Flag”.

These protesting NFL players are just simply wrong. Let them quietly donate their wealth to worthy causes but as President Trump has correctly and appropriately called upon these self-centered spoiled players to cease disrespecting American patriots and sullying our national flag. Come Rally Round the Flag!

Democrats created Nuclear North Korea, Iran

Democrats created Nuclear North Korea, Iran

America is in danger and faces a real threat of a terrifying.

North Korea has the capability of firing an ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) attached with a nuclear war head with the ability to hit the United States, due to an agreement in 1994.  President Bill Clinton arranged $4 billion in energy aid to North Korea for a commitment from North Korea to freeze and dismantle their Nuclear Weapon Development Program.  Essentially, the US gave money to North Korea on a promise with no verification.  Clinton said in 1994, “This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world.”  Instead, North Korea pocketed billions of American tax dollars to expedite the same nuclear program they promised to dismantle.

Now President Trump has a dilemma to deal with.  As time passes, North Korea continues to development more long range capabilities.  If Trump attacks North Korea to prevent an attack on America, he will be blamed for the risk of massive civilian lives lost in North Korea or potentially an attack on South Korea or Japan.  Guam and Hawaii as well as targets along Washington, Oregon, and California are within reach of the nuclear ICBM.  However, if Trump does not attack, North Korea’s technology will continue to provide them many more options as they gain advanced nuclear weapon technology, including a nuclear submarine capable of striking a number of targets.

The unfortunate deal by President Clinton with North Korea is now mirrored by the same deal President Obama made with Iran.

Robert Kauffman, professor of public policy at Pepperdine University stated, “(President) Obama’s feckless nuclear deal (with Iran) is the sequel.”  “We have lifted sanctions on Iran, infusing that tottering economy with much-needed cash, in exchange for an agreement that enables Iran to cross the nuclear threshold.”  He continued that we cannot “enforce the agreement even if we detect unambiguous violation because enforcement depends on the U.N. Security Council.

America and its citizens are in danger since President Clinton and Obama both allowed North Korea and Iran to develop nuclear weapons.  Like North Korea is the threat of today, Iran will be the threat of tomorrow.

A One-Sided Deal Hopefully Soon Gone

Tue, 09/26/2017 - 1:37pm

“We will strengthen not only our missiles but also our air, land and sea forces…When it comes to defending our country, we will ask nobody for their permission.”
– Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s words said after President Trump’s historic U.N. speech

While we have all been focusing on North Korea…and rightfully so…just three days ago Iran tested their new Khoramshahr medium-range missile mere hours after it was unveiled at a Tehran military parade…a successful launch shown on state television courtesy of in-flight video carried within the missile’s nose. And they did so in direct defiance of warnings issued by President Trump…warnings alluding to the fact that he was ready to pull the U.S. out of Obama’s ‘very bad’ nuclear deal…the deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)…a deal signed in 2015 by the ‘so-called’ P5+1…as in the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council…China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, plus Germany.

And know that these nations…save for us of course…still support this deal no matter that Iran continues to claim that the nuclear deal was never intended to address any other issues except nuclear bomb building and/or uranium enrichment…meaning the testing of missiles…delivery or otherwise…was never part of the deal.

And while the deal itself between Iran and the P5+1 did not specifically prohibit Iran from developing or testing missiles, the fact is that after the agreement went into effect the U.N. Security Council adopted a resolution calling on Iran not to take any actions related to ballistic missiles…missiles “designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons” for at least eight years…to which Iran still argues that the tests they are currently conducting are solely for defensive purposes. Playing the semantics card by using the wording of the Security Council’s own resolution against them, we all know that said missiles are indeed designed to carry nuclear warheads…and Iran knows we know and just does not care.

So while President Trump will report to Congress on October 15th as to whether or not he believes Iran remains in compliance with both the nuclear deal itself and with the Security Council resolution, and whether it remains in our best interests to continue to be part of this still ‘very bad’ nuclear deal…know that our president has indeed already made his decision, but being the savvy game player that he is he knows not to speak of his decision before said announced date as it would then give our enemy an upper hand of sorts.

But also know that if President Trump does indeed decide that Iran has not met its previously agreed upon obligations…especially in regards to their ongoing missile testing…missile testing that could give them the much needed technical ‘smarts’ for a nuclear delivery system by the time the deal’s ‘sunset clause’ expires in 2025 or even before…that is if they do not already have it and possibly even be sharing it with North Korea’s mad man-child Kim Jong-un. And that would allow U.S. lawmakers to reimpose even stricter and more punishing sanctions against the Iranian regime which, in and of itself, would lead to the collapse of the agreement.

Now as to Iran’s newest ballistic missile…Iranian Revolutionary Guard Aerospace Commander, General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, told reporters that the Khoramshahr missile just tested has a range of 1,250 miles and can carry multiple warheads, but quickly added the usual rhetoric that all of Iran’s missiles are only designed to carry conventional warheads alone…yeah right…and that they have a limited range of about 1243 miles, but he let it be known that they have the technology to go further. But none of those mile numbers really matter as our ally Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf are already within Iran’s missile range and have been for quite some time.

And now another item of sorts is getting thrown into this nuclear deal mix for can it really be that with Iran’s previous missile tests being not so different than this newest one has led to an epiphany moment for National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster…a moment so life changing that it led him to flip on his once diehard support of Obama’s ‘very bad’ nuclear deal. And why do I say this, on last Thursday’s ‘New Day’ show on CNN, host Chris Cuomo asked Gen. McMaster what he thought of Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. First responding by calling said deal “fundamentally flawed” and that the Trump White House is concerned about what to do about Iran’s “destabilizing behavior,” it was his words, “It gave the Iranian regime all the benefits upfront…and then the incompleteness of the deal…which really could give the regime cover to advance a nuclear program.”…that heralded a complete 180 degree turn from his past words said.

Where Gen. McMaster had once believed that “establishing regular diplomatic talks with Tehran could help reduce the suspicion of Iran not fulfilling the terms of the nuclear deal, and prevent war,” he now has jumped on the ‘Trump train’…so to speak…by saying that, “We’ve taken a holistic look at this…what’s different about the President’s approach is he didn’t just look at the Iran deal — he placed his decision on the Iran deal on broad context of how we protect American citizens, American interests, how we protect our allies and partners from Iran’s broad range of destabilizing behavior.”

See Gen. McMaster’s ‘New Day’ interview with Chris Cuomo here:

A complete and total flip-flop and words I do not for even a moment believe…for these words said are from the very man whom former Secretary of State John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry alluded to in a speech given on June 5, 2017…months after McMaster joined the Trump administration…as being the “best bet” for keeping the nuclear agreement alive. Interesting words for sure but what exactly did Kerry base his words upon. How about that from September 2006 until February 2017…in other words up until he was appointed National Security Advisor replacing Gen. Michael Flynn…McMaster was listed as a member of the British-based think tank ‘International Institute for Strategic Studies’ (IISS).

While at IISS, McMastere served as a consulting senior fellow regarding military history; civil-military relations; development and security; and conflict and conflict prevention. But the sticking point here is that the IISS is bankrolled by many multinational corporate firms doing billions of dollars in business in and with Iran…our enemy Iran…and who has as one of the chief donors a George Soros-funded nonprofit that was identified by the Obama administration as being central in helping to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the public and to the media. While of course not serving there now, McMaster remains in contact with his former colleagues.

Now add in that McMaster basically fired Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Trump aide, from the National Security Council simply because he opposed the Iran nuclear deal…he also removed Rich Higgins, the NSC’s director of strategic planning and another voice against the Iran nuclear deal…as well as removing Derek Harvey, who like the others also opposed the Iran deal no matter that he was the man who held the Middle East portfolio at the NSC…and McMaster did all this in what some newspapers called a “sweep of Iran hard-liners.”

Then there’s rummages now coming out of D.C. that McMaster has reportedly been continuing to urge both President Trump himself as well as his administration to re-certify Iran’s compliance with Obama’s ‘very bad’ nuclear deal no matter his current words said…no matter that President Trump himself has rightfully called this deal “one of the worst transactions the U.S. has ever entered into.”

So, the bottom line for me in regards to Gen. McMaster’s newest words regarding what remains a ‘very bad’ nuclear deal, is that his now flip-flopping placating words said are said solely to try and save his position withing the administration…what with more and more folks telling the president that McMaster might not be who he seems on the surface. And I do not trust him, I do not believe anything he says, and I so do question his loyalty to our president for besides the old adage that leopards never change their spots is that I believe once an islamic condoner it is a safe bet to say always an islamic condoner.

But even if you remove McMaster from the mix, one can easily surmise from Iran’s own words said that they have no intention now nor ever of living up to the deal they agreed to. And that becomes more than a bit obvious in the very words Iran has repeatedly spewed…words to the affect that it has no choice but to boost its defenses because its “regional rivals Israel and Saudi Arabia” have signed arms contracts with Washington and other Western governments. “We will strengthen our defense and military capabilities whether you want it or not,” Iran’s President Rouhani said but a few days ago as a direct response to Trump’s ‘America First’ speech at the U.N. General Assembly last week.

Adding that Washington “creates problems for the peoples of our region every day and boast of selling arms to the bloodthirsty Zionist regime which has been attacking the peoples of our region for 70 years like a cancerous tumor,” is something I find quite humorous in a dark and maybe picky sort of way as Israel has only been a country for 69 years not the 70 years Iran claims…give these islamic sorts an inch and they will surely take a mile.

So where does all this leave us now that we have a president who understands the ramifications that we’ve been ‘had’ by the previous president who catered to the whim of his brethren over the security of the world. President Trump said it best in a recent tweet…the U.S. doesn’t have “much of an agreement” after Tehran again test fired a ballistic missile. And with his adding that “They are also working with North Korea,” Trump knows well that we must not let the “murderous Iranian regime” continue its destabilizing activities as it builds “dangerous missiles”…to which I will add or helps another dangerous regime to do so.

In other words, while we know President Trump is well-skilled in the ‘art of the deal’…in this case his alluding that he may renegotiate the nuclear pact or de-certify what he called “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions” in U.S. history and a total “embarrassment to the United States”…is but a smoke and mirrors buildup for what is his final decision…a final decision he probably made when Iran publicly stated that renegotiation is not option. And we know President Trump does not take well to threats…veiled or otherwise.

Just ask Mr. “Rocket Man” who now sees U.S. Air Force bombers and fighter escorts going further north than the demilitarized zone about the “clear message” that sends…for actions now taken by this president against America’s enemies do indeed speak louder than even forceful words said.

Be ready Iran…you…I’m sure…are rightfully next on President Trump’s ‘hit list.’

Mainstream political polls commit fraud

Mon, 09/25/2017 - 5:47pm

The credibility of mainstream political polls took a serious hit following the 2016 election. Most predicted an easy victory for Hillary Clinton. The entire political class believed she was a shoo-in, and that the election would be a mere formality. But the polls and the pundits were wrong, glaringly so.

It appears they are wrong again, because they persist in making the same mistakes they have been making for years.

Most pollsters and pundits report that President Trump’s approval ratings are in the tank — consistently in the mid- to upper-30 percent range. His disapproval rates average a whopping 57 percent, according to the polls cited below.

The following table reveals why.

In every poll, Democrat respondents outnumbered Republicans by significant amounts. The Economist poll was the worst. Only 24 percent of respondents (360) were Republicans compared to 38 percent (570) Democrats – which means that 58 percent more Democrats were polled than Republicans, as shown in the %D/R column. On average, in these seven widely recognized national polls, only 29 percent (409 people) of the total 1,383 polled were Republicans, while 37 percent (518) were Democrats. Another way of saying it is that, on average, 29 percent more Democrats than Republicans were polled.

This occurs because of the way these polls are constructed. Most use a methodology that queries a random sample of adults. That sounds “fair” and one would expect it to produce roughly equivalent numbers of Republicans and Democrats, but it does not.

All of these polls were taken in August except Gallup, which does not make public the political party composition of its polling samples. Gallup’s May poll — a three-day moving average — was listed instead because Gallup provided political party breakdown. Its latest poll, however, puts Trump’s approval/disapproval rate at 38 percent/56 percent, which isn’t much different from the May poll cited.

Gallup was contacted twice to provide demographic information for its latest poll, but refused to do so. One must question why one of the most widely quoted polling organizations does not allow people to easily discover the political party breakdown of poll respondents.

According to pollster John McLaughlin of McLaughlin Associates, using random samples of adults without further stratification tends to include more young people and females — both groups more likely to be Democrats. Because it is random, it may even include non-citizens. Using this survey methodology, Independents are more likely to poll like Democrats. By using the random sample method, pollsters know they will get a disproportionate number of Democrats and/or people who respond like Democrats, but since few people delve into the weeds to examine polling demographics, the polls are taken to be legitimate.

This is also the least expensive way to poll, providing another reason why so many polls skew the results to the left — independent of any deliberate bias.

Quoted in an article by the Daily Caller, Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica, an independent polling organization, said:

I do know inherently there is a Democratic bias in the polls. And most [pollsters] will deny it… Typically, the mainstream media and the major polling companies will never admit their bias to you. This is like an alcoholic not admitting to using alcohol. They are in denial.

Quoted in the same article, independent pollster John Zogby said, “I am a liberal Democrat, but I always felt that other polls over-sampled Democrats and under-sampled Republicans.”

A few polls query registered voters, which may eliminate non-citizens and improve the results somewhat. The Politico poll, for example, queries registered voters. It shows only a 4 percentage point spread between Republicans and Democrats and provides one of the highest Trump approval ratings of all polls listed in the table.

But this is not always a reliable measure, either. For example, the Economistpoll claims to query “registered voters,” however, voter registration is not verified by directly questioning poll respondents. It is calculated using Census Bureau estimates of the overall registered voter population. So the veracity of the “registered voters” figure is questionable in this poll. Only 24 percent of respondents were Republicans, while 38 percent were Democrats.

Using registered voters is not the best measure, either, because many registered voters never actually vote. McLaughlin says that polling likely voters, while more expensive and time consuming, produces more accurate and representative poll numbers. Voter turnout in the last four elections averaged 32 percent Republican and 34 percent Democrat.

McLaughlin told me that any poll that departs significantly from those averages will bias the results.

As McLaughlin explains:

For example, in our recently completed national poll, Republicans approve the job the President is doing 90% to 8% disapprove. In contrast among Democrats only 17% approve of the President while 80% disapprove. So for each point you take away from a poll’s Republican affiliation, you’re taking a point away from the President’s job approval. Conversely, when you add five points more Democrats, you’re adding four points to the President’s disapproval. It’s that simple.

McLaughlin Associates uses likely voters, as does Rasmussen. Using this method, Trump’s approval ratings are significantly better, currently averaging 46 percent, while the disapproval rate is lower. Similarly, the breakdown of Republicans versus Democrats reflects how people would likely vote if an election were held today, as opposed to a random sample or even a sample of registered voters.

The left-wing bias embedded in most national polls also skews poll responses on virtually all partisan issues, giving an inaccurate reading of public sentiment on everything from taxes to school choice, from immigration to national defense.

McLaughlin says:

Not only does it affect [Trump’s] job rating and favorable rating, it also affects the policies and issues these polls purport to measure. Maybe this is why so many Republicans, Independents and Trump voters seem to disregard media polls. It appears the media is once again sacrificing its credibility for its liberal, anti-Trump bias.

The McLaughlin poll had many other results that should get Congress, and congressional leadership in particular, to sit up and take notice:

      • Only 21 percent believe congressional leadership is helping “drain the swamp.” Forty-nine percent said that congressional leadership supports the swamp.
      • Sixty-three percent believe House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should be replaced.
      • Only 15 percent said they would support the reelection of Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell.
      • A majority of those who support Ryan and McConnell are Democrats.
      • More people (21 percent) support Antifa street thugs than Ryan and McConnell.
      • Forty-six percent are more likely to vote for their member of Congress if they support Trump’s immigrant vetting policies; 38 percent are more likely to vote for them if they don’t.
      • Fifty-two percent are more likely to vote for their member of Congress if the lawmaker supports Trump’s ban on transgenders in the military: 28 percent are less likely to vote for their member if the lawmaker supports transgenders in the military.
      • Fifty-six percent of voters favor repealing and replacing Obamacare; 39 percent oppose.
      • Fifty percent are less likely to vote for their member of Congress if the lawmaker refuses to repeal Obamacare mandates and taxes, while 36 percent are more likely to vote for their lawmaker.
      • Fifty-three percent of voters favor less government; only 32 percent want more.Congress recently held a hearing on curtailing free speech. The McLaughlin poll reveals that:
      • Eighty-five percent believe freedom of speech is a fundamental right. Only 9 percent believe it should be restricted when offensive.
      • Despite the fallout from Charlottesville, Virginia, 85 percent believe the Constitution supports the rights of everyone to freedom of speech, no matter how offensive. Only 8 percent believe it should be restricted.
      • Sixty-three percent oppose Antifa efforts to silence people they disagree with.
      • Forty-three percent oppose Internet companies using the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) “hate list.” This blacklist names many mainstream conservative groups the SPLC disagrees with politically.
      • Only 32 percent supported using the SPLC’s list.

This poll suggests that many more voters support conservative ideas and policies than mainstream media polls claim. Congress should take a very close look at this poll, because it is a much better indication of those policies and candidates a majority is likely to support.

God Bless America

Mon, 09/25/2017 - 4:18pm

God Bless America! Did you think the shift back to God Bless America from God Less America would be easy? As we morphed from simple politeness to full blown political correctness the left descended into an orgy of depravity cheered on by eight years of support from the “Black House” contrived to devide and conquer everything that was holy, decent, and precious to Americans

As America struggled to show itself to be a true melting pot it quickly became a kiln, and then proceeded to hell as the liberals danced around the golden calf promoting every blasphemy known to man. You wonder where ANTIFA came from? These are the children of perdition. Their father is the father of all lies, Barack Obama! The end result of Affirmative Action gone wrong.

We now have no moral code, no common sense, no national pride, and no respect. And it has nothing to do with gender recognition or black lives mattering or North Korea or how many times a thug gets shot while bull rushing a cop. It’s all about the press secretary not being able to hold a simple press conference without having to fend questions about the president defending the flag. Donald Trump holds his hand over his heart at the sound of the national anthem, Obama held his balls! Nigga please!

Affirmative Action only affirmed that blacks are not capable of succeeding without a massive edge forced upon society, and if that’s not racism I’m not a white boy from Austin. The left has been enabled by eight years of a social experiment that failed miserably. The NFL is a prime example. A freaking reality show where at the very least these millionaires can show respect for the flag that allows them to work one day a week playing a game high school kids play for free!

It’s turning ever so slowly, but it’s turning. We are experiencing the birth of a nation, and the labor pains are causing howls from ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and a minority that has torn at the fabric of our society since the worst president in history placed his lying hand in that Bible in 2008! So, God Bless America and God Damn those who seek to destroy her. The sad thing is those who have struggled for decades to heal the divisions of the Civil War have to start all over again to heal the divisions of the liberal reconstruction of our nation. It won’t be easy, but it can be done, and God WILL Bless America again!
