A Foolish Act

Tea Party Tribune - Mon, 05/20/2019 - 4:37am

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Trump Effect x Three

Tea Party Tribune - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:25pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bad call Ms. Pelosi…very bad call indeed.

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

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

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

All We Need To Know

Tea Party Tribune - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:24pm


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Omar and Tlaib…Siding With The Enemy Yet Again

Tea Party Tribune - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:22pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tea Party Tribune - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 4:20pm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See video ‘Omar Blames US for Devastation…’ here: https://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2019/05/op-ed-its-more-than-just-about-other.html

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Illinois likely to impose illegal racial and gender quotas on companies

Liberty Unyielding - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 2:05pm
Illinois is America’s worst managed state, based on measures such as cash solvency, budget solvency, ability to meet long-term spending commitments, and unfunded pension liabilities and debt. It is losing population as residents leave due to rising taxes and deteriorating services. In 2016, it lost more people than any other state. By then, it had […]

For Bernie Sanders, Union Bosses Matter More than Poor Kids

Center for Freedom and Prosperity (CF&P) - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 12:09pm

Bernie Sanders is a delusional hard-core statist, but that’s part of what makes him attractive for some voters.

Simply stated, they think he’s authentic rather than a finger-in-the-wind politician.

But I’m not so sure that’s true.

pointed out in 2015 that he’s not even true to his socialist ideology. Rather than promoting government ownershipcentral planning, and price controls, he has behaved like a conventional left-wing politician. Indeed, there was almost no difference between his voting record and those of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Whether that’s good or bad is a matter of judgement, of course.

Today, though, I want to highlight something that’s unambiguously bad. He’s decided that currying favor with union bosses at the National Education Association is so important that it’s okay to trap kids from poor families in failing schools. And that, to me, makes him a political hack rather than an honest leftist.

Check out these excerpts from a story in the New York Times.

Senator Bernie Sanders took aim at charter schools on Saturday… In a 10-point plan, Mr. Sanders…said that, if elected, he would…forbid…federal spending on new charter schools as well as…ban…for-profit charter schools — which account for a small proportion of existing charters. “The proliferation of charter schools has disproportionately affected communities of color,” Mr. Sanders wrote… Mr. Sanders of Vermont would also require that charter schools be subject to the same oversight as public schools… Parts of the plan focused on educators, declaring Mr. Sanders’s support for a $60,000 baseline for teachers’ starting salaries as well as unionization efforts by charter schoolteachers.

By the way, I’m not a big fan of charter schools. It would be far better to have true school choice and allow parents to pick high-performing private schools.

But charter schools are definitely a better option if the only other choice is a failing government school. Especially since pouring more money into a broken system doesn’t work. Regardless of whether it’s a Democrat plan to waste money or a Republican plan to waste money.

This assumes, however, that the goal is to help children get a good education so they have a better chance for a good life.

That’s not what motivates Bernie Sanders. Like many Democrats, his main goal is to appease the teacher unions. And that means protecting and preserving the privileges and perks of union members and the government’s education monopoly.

Disgusting.

P.S. It’s even more nauseating that the NAACP has betrayed the interests of black people by rejecting school choice (I much prefer the views of Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell).

P.P.S. Just like it’s disgusting that Obama’s Secretary of Education chose private schools for his kids (as did Obama) while fighting against school choice for poor families.

P.P.S. On an uplifting note, Fran Tarkenton, the former Georgia Bulldog (he also played a bit in the NFL) used a sports analogy to explain the benefits of school choice.

P.P.P.S. It’s also uplifting to see very successful school choice systems operate in nations such as CanadaSwedenChile, and the Netherlands. And India doesn’t have school choice, but it’s a remarkable example of how private schools are the only good option for poor families that want upward mobility.

P.P.P.P.S. The Washington Post provides an example of honest and decent leftism, having editorialized in favor of poor children over teacher unions.

Fran Lebowitz to Bill Maher: Trump should be handed over to Saudis, butchered like Khashoggi

Liberty Unyielding - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 11:50am
Veteran social commentator Fran Lebowitz was once compared with the great satirist Dorothy Parker, which was as undeservedly flattering to the hard-edged Lebowitz as it was insulting to the witty Parker.

Painting of migrant children holding sign reading ‘Bring Our Mom Back’ to hang in Capitol

Liberty Unyielding - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 11:06am
The problem with the competition, apart from the inescapable evidence it provides that our schools are spoon-feeding our children liberal orthodoxies masquerading as education, is that it evolves into a pissing contest between Democratic and Republican House members.

Does anyone actually want Joe Biden to be president?

At campaign rally in Philly Biden mangles James Joyce quote: Hilarity ensues

Liberty Unyielding - Sun, 05/19/2019 - 9:47am
At 76, Joe Biden is only four years older than Donald Trump, but his propensity for gaffes, coupled with Trump's seemingly boundless energy, makes the former vice president seem much older.
