Hypocrisy Only Applies to the Right!

Another week of news cycle finger-pointing goes both ways. The Left calls the Right hypocrites. The Right calls the Left hypocrites. Then comes the, “I know you are but what am I” line. Do you feel like you’re back in high school with all the drama?

I took a parenting class years ago where the person teaching the class said that kids are masters at deflecting the conversation to get out of trouble and take the heat off of themselves. They twist and tweak and throw temper tantrums until they get what they want. Enter the loons on the Left!

It started with Senator Dick Durban’s (D) statement saying that Republican Senators were going to hold up Loretta Lynch’s nomination until a vote was cast for a specific bill. Why did Republicans do that? Because Democrat Senators were playing politics with a serious sex slave and human trafficking bill. Durban stated that Republicans were relegating her to the “back of the bus” until the bill was passed. Hmmm… what possible meaning would “back of the bus” have? Why didn’t he say “back burner” or “the end of line” or something less, what am I looking for here, RACIAL! Instead, he tried to make it look like Republicans were not interested in affirming her or voting on her confirmation simply because she was black. Mr. Durbin, your medication isn’t working! Wasn’t it you who held up the nomination of Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State? But I’ll bet the farm it had nothing to do with her color or her being a black woman, nor did a Republican accuse you of that.

Then there is that little matter of Democrats not getting involved with Netanyahu because it was too close to the elections in his country. As if shaking hands with our president would have assured him a win! Although if Obama’s campaign operatives were smart they might have made it happen considering a recent CNN poll showing that the majority of Israelis don’t trust Mr. Obama.

Faith, Celebrities, Charity, & the War on Christianity!

Denzel Washington dishes on his religious upbringing and his faith in God and the Bible.

War on Christianity (not all religions). You don’t see the Quran and Torah being banned from schools, military, and public places like is happening with the Bible.

Celebrities who “come out” vocal about their Christian faith.

Are you looking for your blessing? When was the last time you blessed someone else?

Ferguson police setup & got themselves shot to gain sympathy, according to neighbors! HUH?

 

The Loons are Making Headway!

Each week I am inundated with emails from people all over the country with stories that are “out of this world.” Some are so deep in conspiracy theories that, if compiled, we would have a great science fiction novel. But let’s deal with a little reality, truth, and fact!

Look at what’s happening on our college campuses. Jewish students being arrested at a peaceful protest for inciting a riot. They did nothing. The opposition started the violence because they wanted the Jewish students to stop “spreading their propaganda.” Wow, really!? On our college campuses, where free thought and free flow of ideas are openly welcomed? REALLY? Or recently, at a California college, a Jewish student was denied acceptance to a committee. Not because she was unqualified, but because she was Jewish. Yep. So much for a institutes of higher learning and reason.

Where are the professors and administrators while all this is going on? Sitting around their little Lib think-tanks, or should I say, “Devoid of Rational Thought Tanks.” There is little to no pushback from the Liberal academia. Why? From what I have read, it’s because they are smarter than us! It’s because we are too uneducated to work it through without their help and anyone from “their world.” Any professors who take a more Conservative stance on issues are immediately ridiculed and pushed out. Once again I say, so much for freedom of thought and free flowing ideas on campus.

It seems most of these campuses have become little Liberal concentration camps to reprogram those who have lost their way and gone down the Conservative thinking path. They have to be reprogrammed and brought back to a more Liberal way of thinking. Those already in the Liberal Camp are reinforced that all is good in their world.

No, you say?

Parenting, Millennials, & More!

University debates non-discrimination in the clubs. Allowing Christians to run atheist clubs and vice versa. PC run amok. Can we just use some common sense, people?

Multiple cups of coffee MAY reduce your risk of Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Sounds like good news. Possibly too good to be true…

Store, Marks & Spencer, bans use of words Jesus and Christ in gift messages, but jihad Buddha Allah are ok.

DEA warns of stoned rabbits if Utah passes medical marijuana. Really? That’s your biggest concern?

Liberals go crazy over beautiful women working in Scott Walker’s office. Is that all they could find? That’s not a scandal folks. Who are they to say that the most qualified applicant couldn’t be beautiful? Talk about a sexist statement!

Nothing says political like Selma!

The President went to Selma, Alabama to celebrate and commemorate the march across the bridge that helped bring civil rights to the forefront, into the living room of all Americans, and help move it forward. Yes, it was aimed at the black community, but as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed, all would be judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin… black, white, brown, or otherwise.

I say commemorate because the people involved in the Selma march (there were white folks there too) were not welcome there. They knew they could be killed. They knew they would have no place to sleep, probably not much food, and certainly not much help. They didn’t care. They knew that what they were fighting for was right and, as with our forefathers, believed it was worth losing everything for, even dying for. They deserve to be remembered and honored.

Unlike people today who say they are protesting about how they are being treated. “Hands up don’t shoot” turned out to be a lie. Any apologies to the policeman who had to quit and move out of town because of that LIE? Not so much.

These people would have made Dr. King proud, right? I am sure he would have encouraged them to loot and burn down buildings and beat up people in their communities, right? No, he would not have approved! He was for peaceful demonstrations, unlike the Reverend Al “Get-it-where-and-when-I-can” Sharpton. Rev. Al forgot that at his million marchers event in New York City. His followers chanted: “What do we want??…DEAD COPS!…When do we want them??…NOW!!!” A perfect example of Dr. King? I think not.

I say celebrate because we celebrate the sacrifices made that day in Selma by people of all colors, yes, mostly black, but many others as well. The actions of those people that day sparked and continued a movement that couldn’t and won’t be stopped!

Jump ahead 50 years. We have a black president, a black attorney general, and many positions of authority at the White House are filled by people who have black skin (sorry, I’m not calling them all “African American” because I have been told by many blacks that they are not all of African descent, some are from Belize, Jamaica, and so on). We have come a long way in 50 years. Are we perfect? No!

Nasty old white guys!

CPAC 2015 Pre-View

CPAC stands for the Conservative Political Action Committee. Big woop! What does that mean? Well, in looking at some of the posts on Facebook and other online services, I can see that the Left believes it’s a bunch of stuffy, old, white, grey-haired guys that think the only good minority is one working for minimum wage.
‘Where did that come from? Can’t be from actual fact. Because leadership in the Republican party is as diverse, if not more so, than the Democrats leadership.
Look at the lineup, Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. Representative Mia Love, Carly Fiorina, Senator Tim Scott and the list goes on. So how is it we let the Dem’s paint a picture of us as the modern day KKK? Marketing! You can lie about anything as long as you market it to the right people the right way.
To be clear, the Dems voted against ending slavery, against giving women the right to vote, and they started the KKK with the express intent to scare the blacks back into slavery or kill them off all together.
The Democrats have painted a picture that Republicans were responsible for all this. Like Brian Williams’ rescue from the downed chopper, it ain’t so!
President LBJ said he knew how to keep them n*****s voting for Democrats for 100 years. He was right. Keep anyone dependent on the government for food, shelter, money and so on and they will do anything you want them to do out of self-preservation.
Republicans have always fought for the rights of all people. All the misdirection from the Left can’t change that.
And let’s talk about this “war on women.” …

Who’s Killing Who in the U.S. the REAL facts!

Remember when your parents told you to believe half of what you see and almost none of what you hear?

I think of that every time I see a Tweet or Facebook post from people I know never check out their information. These erroneous “posts” get traction mostly because they are received by friends and family who think you would never send them something that wasn’t true. Many have been bitten, including me, because we don’t take time to check it out. Yet it seems when it comes to political issues, especially, we never, ever, ever want to challenge loved ones. Well, it’s time to start!

This week a Tweet floated by asking the question, “What is it with white men in society? Why are so many killing American Muslims, women, blacks and children?” This from a person who has worked in the media and claims that they only speak the truth, but people like me on the Right are wacked!

Low IQ voters and those with the victim mentality eat posts like this up. But it’s all wrong. I didn’t go to any Right-wing sites or Left-wing sites. I went to those highly partisan sites known as the FBI (for crime stats) and the DOJ (for crime reports).

Let’s look at a few:

2012 DOJ – The percentages of black adults and white adults arrested for murder were similar, with 49.3 percent being black and 48.3 percent being white.

2012 Black juveniles accounted for 51.5 percent of all juveniles arrested for violent crimes. White juveniles accounted for 61.6 percent of all juveniles arrested for property crimes.

Doesn’t look like a wide margin to me!

AS I looked for the numbers I found a little known fact. The DOJ combines Hispanic and white in many statistics. Why? They really can’t get percentages

The Perfection Known as Obama?

Once again, this week many of Mr. Obama’s failed “policies” started to close in around him; military, economic, healthcare, and immigration to name a few.
Mr. Obama has, again, submitted a plan to defeat ISIS… ISIL… terrorists, I don’t even know what to call them so he will know who I’m talking about.
He wants a 3 year war powers authorization to finally defeat “the enemy.” But it still doesn’t include boots on the ground. Really? Even after many of his military advisors, many retired military advisors, and many of the allies that we have left in the Middle East say it won’t work without boots on the ground. This plan comes from a man who continually ignores the experts, a man who probably hasn’t ever played a game of “battleship,” let alone care about our military as a whole.
His last plan is working so well that 24 Christians were beheaded yesterday by ISIS affiliates and the successful example of his plan working in Yemen (his words not mine) is evidenced by their fall on the very day he claimed victory there.
Let’s pray for our troops in Iraq who are being surrounded as I write this. In the meantime, the White House is “monitoring” the situation. That’s just further proof that the Prez couldn’t care less about our men and their mental state. HEY PREZ… YO! Why don’t you grow a spine and send in our Air Force to wipe out anyone who even smells like they’re going hurt our guys? Show you care about US instead of THEM!!!
He has no problem housing, feeding and providing medical care for all those illegals within days of their arrival across our border, yet he is willing to keep letting our vets die long, slow deaths because they can’t get medical care, there aren’t enough facilities or doctors, and definitely, not enough caring! Apparently, there is no executive order he can sign to speed it up!
Mr. Obama also has decided it would be good to do a “selfie” commercial to get young people to sign up for Obamacare. Please note that Obamacare is woefully low on membership. They are millions of subscribers behind from what they need since they were relying heavily “forcing” young people to sign up and carry the older folks who would be a drain the healthcare system.
It looks like a little more than 10 million have actually signed up “for REAL” and the system, based on early estimates, needs at least 13 million with a large number being young signees. So far, there have been numerous complaints about broken exchanges, cancelled coverage, higher premiums, and unaffordable deductibles. Oh, and let’s not forget that the administration cancelled over 6 million policies deemed to be substandard forcing just under 6 million to have to sign up on Obamacare to get insurance again. Forced healthcare!
Our economy is good? Well kind of!

Do You Know What You Stand For?

Getting ready for one of my faith radio segments, I read that a private, Catholic school was suspending, and trying to fire, a professor for a blog post he had written. He called attention to a class where the substitute teacher told a student they couldn’t discuss gay marriage because it fostered homophobic feelings. Seriously?First, it is a private college, so I guess they can dictate what is acceptable to speak about and what isn’t. But, don’t people go to college to foster open, honest, intellectual discussion? Or is it now a place to foster politically correct (PC) conversation only?

Phobia is the fear of something. I don’t know anyone who is afraid of gay people or gay married people or gay divorced people or (insert other combination here).

Not believing in something or disagreeing with someone is not a fear! I don’t believe in allowing my 6 year-old grandchild to watch an “R” rated, sex-filled, foul-mouthed movie. By the Left’s definition of “phobic” I have a sex and foul language phobia.

It’s much easier to have honest conversation if you use the words properly. The only reason not to is because you don’t have the facts to win or you don’t really care about the facts and you just don’t want to have an honest conversation.

When people don’t have guidelines or don’t live by the guidelines and rules they say they believe in it’s very confusing for those around them and for themselves.

In the above example, this is a private Catholic school. If I were still a Catholic I would send my child there to strengthen their Catholic foundation and to get a good education in a Catholic environment. Simple, I understand what all those words mean.

So when the Catholic university got mad at a tenured professor for writing a piece about the student who was told that speaking about gay marriage would foster more homophobia in students he was just as confused because the Catholic bible also speaks against same-sex relationships.

I wonder if they are teaching that the Virgin Mary may very well have not been a virgin because many young girls were having sex in those villages? I’m just sayin’… apparently you can make it up as you go!

So why would it be an issue to discuss gay marriage? Are they no longer a Catholic organization? Can someone be a Christian and follow Mohammed? Can someone be a Muslim and follow Buddha? Of course not.

You cannot be a Catholic and make it up as you can go along. They are a very disciplined and, unless you attend the “Nancy Pelosi School of Catholicism” you have it all wrong.

Why are vaccinated people so afraid of an outbreak?

If vaccines are so effective and safe, then why are the approximately 93% of the population who are vaccinated for measles, so afraid of the 7% of the population who chose not to vaccinate? The vaccination supposedly makes you immune so that you cannot contract the disease, right? So what are all these vaccinated people afraid of? I can’t figure out this logic. In reality, the only people who should be concerned about an outbreak are the people who are not vaccinated, because the rest of us who are, are already protected. And we’re continuing to talk about this, why?

You can read one healthcare expert’s opinion here.

And you can read some real facts and statistics about vaccinations here.

The Real JV Team Emerges!

Talk about a “haunting comment.” This will go down as one of President Obama’s all time.

Can you imagine how thick the book of “Obama’s Greatest Faux Paus” will be? Or how many volumes it will be?  Do I need to list them all or do we have them memorized as some of us do the “Pledge of Allegiance”? (Notice I said some.)

Mr. Obama called ISIS a “JV Team” but now he says he didn’t quite say that. Just like he now says he didn’t quite say “you can keep your doctor” and he didn’t quite say “your health care premiums would be less than you cell phone bill.” It sure seems like we keep hearing him wrong and the internet records him wrong a lot too!

To continue, he called ISIS a JV Team because he felt they didn’t lack the brain power, resources, and commitment that it takes to go after the Pro Teams, like the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Syria and God only knows who else he was thinking of.

You see the reason you have a JV Team is because the players are younger, less experienced, and need more time to practice together. You don’t usually want them on the big boys team because they would drag them down.

That “JV Team” that Mr. Obama tagged, aka ISIS, is now in control of a very large part of the Middle East. They are responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of innocent people. They are part of the reason oil prices are falling as they steal oil, load it up in stolen tankers, and sell it on the open market. They are instilling fear in and around Europe and parts of the U.S. These junior league boys are acting like, and accomplishing, senior league goals.

Why? Because they are committed at all costs, even to the point of death. That’s what makes them senior league. They are willing to give it all for the end game, and when they are up against it, they give some more. Their leaders speak out and stand behind their misguided principles and get the resources they need, by any means, to ensure they win.

Enter the “White House JV Team” (WHJV), the “Coyotes” ( I use coyotes because zoologist say they are the most cowardly animal and only attack when the enemy is well outnumbered.) This administration has gained control of one of the most powerful and feared fighting forces on the planet since the Roman army and has effectively turned them in to the most unreliable fighting force on the planet. And it’s no fault of the capable men and women that serve in the military.

This president knows more about more things than everyone of our great thinkers and philosophers before him. Just ask him and he tell you so!

I say this because he puts together military, economic, and social issue committees and takes little to none of the suggested actions from these committees.

He makes every mistake a first year law or medical student makes. Most students feel they have the answers after their first year in school and are willing to tell you what’s wrong with you before you even ask.

He put together a military commission on how to deal with ISIS and the threats in the Middle East. After they returned with their findings, mind you the committee was made up of seasoned military experts, he decided they were wrong and took it in another direction.  Ignoring the experts. A serious JV move.

To the jobs committee, he appointed the head of G.E. to chair it. The guy who took the majority of U.S. jobs overseas. Makes sense? Not so much. And once again implements almost none of the committee suggestions.

He gathered some well-known economists together for another committee, but none from the opposing side of the economic aisle. And when the committee came back with their recommendations, he implemented some but not the majority.

The Darwin Award goes to Ed Schultz!

merican Sniper is breaking box office records. Those who have seen the movie have great things to say about it. The realities of war and what these guys go through comes through loud and clear, except for a few Hollywood elitists.

The same groups of people who have no problem making movies glorifying hit men, prostitutes, mafia, and “shoot ‘em up, bang-bang” movies seem to have a big problem with American Sniper. It just shows you how full of themselves they really are.

But the guy that really takes the cake in showing the hatred some people have for America is Ed Schultz. Ed believes that if you don’t think like he does as to what American patriotism is, then basically, you’re a moron because he is the all-knowing, all-seeing all… well, he’s god. At least in his own mind!

Where are these cowards (guys like Michael Moore, Seth Rogan, and our buddy, Ed Schultz) when it comes to investigating what is truly taking place in the Middle East? Why aren’t they talking about the stories where, because of us, kids can play in streets again and businesses can actually operate safely and women can go to school again? Where were they when thousands of Christian kids were being slaughtered? When the Boko Haram crew took (and continues to take) kids from schools and sell them as slaves? We hear nothing from these cowards.

However, it’s easy for them to criticize our military. They won’t hunt you down and kill you for criticizing them!

Ed’s recent rant about how bad American Sniper was began with the tired, old, worn out “Bush lied people died” ………
