My Thoughts On The South Carolina Shooting!

Obama and Hillary wasted no time and raced too soon to use this episode to denounce gun violence. More people are saved by guns in this country than are killed by them, but the media doesn’t report those statistics. This was a drugged up kid who did this. Why did his father give him a gun on his birthday(it has since been reported that he brought the gun himself with money his father gave him for his birthday) when he’s been arrested twice before for hard core illegal drugs and he was on this anti-opiate drug that makes people go violent? Why didn’t anyone say anything when he told his friend he was planning this for six months.  Didn’t his mother suspect anything when he had all this white supremist and skinhead videos and literature in his room?  Yet people still say where were the red flags whenever something like this happens. Well they were right there in front of you, but noone raised a finger or said anything. There are none so blind as those who will not see.

Obama says this doesn’t happen in other countries but it does. Has he forgotten France so soon? Has he forgotten the mass beheadings in Iran so soon? Has he forgotten the mass killings by ISIS  so soon where they lined Iraqi soldiers up in a ditch and shot them all?? Ireland has had its’ share of mass killings also. Meanwhile more blacks have been killed by other blacks in the thousands, but the media only reports when one white person does a mass killing like in Newtown and Colorado and now here.

The left always calls for more gun control. Don’t they realize there are close to 100 gun control laws in effect now? The only next step would be to confisgate all guns and that’s exactly what Hitler did and we know what followed there. Besides, who really is responsible for anyone person carrying a gun. Surely it is impossible that it is them. (I say wryly)

He reloaded FIVE times. Plenty of time for a good guy with a gun to stop this tragedy. Probably would have saved a half dozen lives. But the morons on the left don’t understand that.

Saul Alinsky Communism 101 “Never let a Tragedy go to waste” Obama said nothing about the 14 Blacks that were killed yesterday in St Louis why? No Whites were involved and their wasn’t division opportunity for Communist Gun Control.

Sick People will always get a weapon of some kind and kill someone nothing new.

But never give up you Right to defend your family and Country form the Hitler’s, Muslim Terrorist and imported Drug gangs from Mexico.

Chicago Obama’s home town has the strictest gun laws in the Country and one of the most Violent gun crimes deaths. Why? Criminals don’t obey laws.

Here we go again…..the left will call for gun control when the truth is this was a mentally ill, crack head guy who was being medicated for drug addictions….. IF someone had a gun in the church they could have stopped him and this would be a different outcome.
BUT the left will focus on that it was a crime against blacks with a gun. Barry ran to the micro phone to talk about it. I don’t recall him talking about anything when the Muslim beheaded a co-worker and was trying to be-head another one when he was shot and killed because someone had a gun!

The president urged a broader response in emotional remarks on the deadly Charleston shooting Thursday.

‘This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries’

Obama’s Definition of a Terrorist

Isn’t it amazing how Barack Obama refuses to label Muslim murderers Il Duce Obamaas terrorists yet has no problem calling me a terrorist. My qualifications as a terrorist? I am white, a Christian, an honorably discharged veteran, a gun owner, and believe in the Constitution. I have NEVER committed ANY type of crime yet am labeled as a dangerous person based on a PROFILE designed to remove my liberty, not on any criminal activity or real threat to anyone. I thought Obama is against any kind of profiling but that seems to be based on his prejudices, not a true aversion to profiling. Obama and his ilk desire to relegate me and those like me to criminal status while protecting those who are actually trying to subjugate all people to their demented idea of life, using terrorism to do so.

Obama sends our military to “fight terrorists” while simultaneously sending billions of dollars to help finance the terror organizations.   Our military is handcuffed by “rules of engagement” designed to ensure failure and maximum American casualties. Why am I the enemy? I believe Obama and his allies are in cahoots with Islamic terrorists, and know that I, as an American patriot, am not the problem but insists on labeling me as such to cover his treasonous actions.

I can now be held without crime or charges because he doesn’t like my beliefs, how quaint!!!!! How unconstitutional!!!!! The saddest aspect of this is that most of those in Congress actually stand with fuehrer Obama against the Constitution they swore to uphold and the people they claim to represent.   Obama is turning the USA into the ussa, with the assistance of nearly every member of Congress. TheyConstitution are selling our nation to the NEW WORLD ORDER cabal of billionaires controlled by former Nazi George Soros. Barack Obama has spent millions of taxpayer dollars hiding his records from scrutiny and has in his pocket a media that makes no pretense of objectivity where he is concerned. Never in my life have I seen a more corrupt, immoral, and Marxist president. Obama blatantly supports real life Islamic terrorists while labeling the defenders of our nation as “potential domestic terrorists” although these “suspected terrorists” merely pledged to defend liberty and have done so in an honorable fashion. So, I ask all people; who is endangering your freedom and safety, myself and other veterans or the narcissistic radical Islamist sitting in the White House? Look back at how Adolph Hitler was adored by Germans until he sent them to total destruction and then look at how Obama is adored and bowed to by too many Americans, many merely because of his skin color!

Obama promotes racial division, immorality, and Islamic murder while trying to destroy the Constitution and the Christian faith that this Bible n Flag Picturecountry was founded upon. It saddens me greatly to see the nation I was willing to die for fall so far from being the “shining city on a hill” that it once was and to become a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah!!!!!

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

No More Shakespeare. Racist Liberals Deny US Our Heritage.

Dane Dusbiber, an English teacher in Sacramento, will no longer teach Shakespeare because he was white.  In other words: she’s a racist and wants “white” things forbidden.  Maybe we should also stop allowing people to buy washing machines or microwave ovens and the unheard-of convenience they provide.  After all, microwave ovens are made using engineering standards, materials and procedures that are of “white” design and invention. How about the commercial jet aircraft that many people use for pleasure and business travel?  Aircraft are “white” inventions.  The cure for Polio was discovered by a “white” guy.  And although many people of color and diverse ethnic backgrounds are engineers, doctors, scientists and manufacturers and make many things that we all need and use, these people are using techniques developed by “white” people, as the good teacher uses the word.

Ms. Dusbiber would deny her students the background of their own culture by denying them Shakespeare and whatever else she and other racist liberals personally don’t understand or like.  The reason education is so dreadful in the United States at present is because people like Ms. Dusbiber refuse to teach the basics of western culture and the enormous advances, liberties and prosperity that derive from its teachings.  We are living today with a package deal of historically provided accomplishments in a constitutional democracy combined with the prosperity and freedom that comes from Capitalism and allows us to live more comfortably than any other society in the recent or distant past. If the likes of Ms. Dudbiber are allowed to bury the traditions and thinking of our predecessors, we will lose our pleasant lives and revert to the misery and want that our forebears worked to overcome and finally succeeded in eradicating.

The United States is currently experiencing the un-policing of our cities while gangs of criminals break the law and attack the police, and it’s in part due to liberal thinking like the Sacramento teacher’s, which states that all is relevant, that there are no guidelines we need to recognize nor follow and that we just need to do things that feel good, and if it doesn’t feel good to read Shakespeare (after all he’s an old guy using an old language), we’ll just forbid him and forget that part of our heritage. Denying Shakespeare, Marx or any other of our writers and thinkers will mean losing much of what makes our current lives possible, at least in part because it is allowing the deniers to pretend historical events were unimportant or never happened.

So when our good teacher uses her IPAD she had better realize that she’s using the tool of a “white” guy, and she should consider what will happen to her comfortable life if “white” ideas go away, which is exactly what she professes.  Whether it’s Japan, India or Peoria, a free people who value and use the education that has resulted in worldwide advancement in health care, science  and convenience, are prospering, and societies that are closed and deny the free discussion of ideas, are suffering.

 

How Delusional – Murder is Already Illegal

The impulsive and irrational push from the left to create yet one more law, regulation or ordinance to magically prevent violent deaths at the hands of humans is ill-thought and freedom-robbing. I have bad news for them – laws haven’t prevented murders .. ever.

Most recently a crazed white dude went into a church with a gun and killed 9 people. There were laws in place to stop this – but why didn’t they?

South Carolina already has a law prohibiting the possession of a firearm in a church unless specifically allowed by the leading church authority. They made their gun-safe zone reaaallly gun safe.

Assault, carrying concealed without a permit and finally, murder are already illegal.

Certainly the tragedy in Charleston is saddening, but adding one more law to murder, asssault, concealed carry and guns in churches .. what good would it do?

At some point, perhaps they will start looking at the pharmacological or mental health angle of the whole thing. Or maybe … South Carolina will consider letting its church members carry.

The gun won’t be convicted of anything. Because, on its own, its incapable of doing much of anything other than gaining or losing value.

If guilty, Dylann Storm Roof will take whatever punishment the courts inflict. Why? Because the gun didn’t intentionally do anything. It served its master. A master bent on the death of a prayer group in South Carolina. The master has a price to pay.

Those desiring a more socialist, communist or otherwise progressive America will tell the story differently. That somehow, without the gun, no tragedy would have occurred or that in other countries multiple murders don’t happen. They lie.

In China, 29 died by knife wounds. In North Carolina, a psycho ran over people with an SUV. There are so many more incidents where a group of people died without a gun involved. Oddly, it seems that mass murderers will kill with whatever weapon is available to them. Gun, sword, knife, car, truck .. baseball bat.

Without facts, Constitutional conservatives don’t stand a chance. With facts, no one else has any chance at all.

Is Congress About To Vote The United States Back To “The Jungle”?

In 1906 Upton Sinclair wrote “The Jungle”, a book which described the terrible labor conditions that workers experienced in the United States at the time.  Currently Congress is considering bills that could return us to similarly unpleasant times in that they are considering legislation that will allow Obama (the same “fundamentally transform the United States” individual who will do anything to destroy the prosperity and liberty we have so long enjoyed) to make fast-track changes to U.S. law that will create at-present unknown regulations (regulations which are to be decided dictatorially by Obama) that the United States legislature will be unable to undo.  And since Obama has proven himself to be a totally evil force as regards America’s position in the world and to conditions within our borders (for example his unconstitutional immigration orders that have swamped our borders with illegals and have certainly caused at least suffering, if not worse, for the young children crossing Mexico alone to get to our borders), he is not to be trusted with any such power.

The bills being considered are the TPA (which will give Obama fast-track authority and will thereafter by-pass congress); TPP (which was negotiated in secret between mega-corporations and the various governments involved); TTiP (which involves trade between the U.S. and Europe, and never mind that simply changing both sides’ tariff laws would accomplish the same thing) and TiSA (which would involve the mobility of labor between nations and would mean that congress could no longer even pretend to make labor or immigration laws for our nation).

If you believe that Obama never makes decisions in America’s favor then he must be stopped from being given even more power to severely injure our nation and the middle class, and to make even worse our disastrous unemployment rate.  Obama’s executive orders have already (illegally) given persons illegally in our nation tax and employment advantages and is promising many of them citizenship in time for the next election when they will vote for Democrats who will promise them even more goodies at tax payer expense.

If you stop to consider that not only was the TPP developed in secrecy by the Obama administration, but the public was kept completely in the dark as to what was in the bill, and even members of congress were only permitted to see it in secrecy, in a locked room, were forbidden to take any notes from the viewing and were further sworn to not divulge what was in the bill they had secretly read.  If this is an example of transparency and openness in government in a legislative democracy, then I don’t know what a rule by fiat would be called.

We must tell our legislators: Stop Obama’s fast-track!

 

Donald Trump and Media’s Treatment of Presidential Candidates

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president earlier this week, America let loose a collective snort of derision. For years, as Trump has flirted with running for the nation’s highest office, it has seemed as though the media mogul has been stumping with the sole purpose of generating publicity for his brand. While some charge, with some merit, this is a degradation of the democratic process, it is certainly a brilliant P.R. move.

Trump’s serious as a candidate in the eyes of the electorate contrasted with the negative media coverage coming from the right in the past days is interesting. Trump’s face painted with clown makeup was plastered on the cover of the New York Post. In an article title “Witless Ape Rides Escalator,” published in National Review Online, Trump was described as having the “worst taste since Caligula.”

Some, talk radio king Rush Limbaugh among them, have pointed out that left wing media never savage their nonserious candidates.

But surely, the willingness of right-leaning pundits to call out the shortcomings of politicians, regardless of their party identification, is a good thing. It speaks to the consistency with which conservatives approach their ideals. They stick to one standard, regardless of whether the person with whom they disagree might otherwise hold the same beliefs.

Besides, becoming a candidate for national office contains an expectation of scrutiny. Presidential nominees open themselves to a bevy of questions in order that their shortcomings and hypocrisies be exposed; an individual flawed in character or policy preferences is a detriment to the nation’s welfare.

And Trump certainly has plenty of shortcomings. He did, after all, propose wiping out the national debt in the 1990s by assessing a one-time 14.25% tax on individuals and trusts with a net worth over $10 million.

That being said, there is of course the old adage of their being no such thing as bad press. Trump, who, according to research compiled by FiveThirtyEight has a net favorability rating of -32%, benefits every time his name is discussed in the press. Even negative coverage is a lightning rod for his campaign. The mere repetition of his overbearing arrogance and ridiculous, often xenophobic statements is enough to make him seem more mainstream and liked than he actually is.

So, what responsibility does the media have in this situation? The question of candidate coverage is an ever-present one. Each cycle, candidates who seem to be underdogs complain that they remain this way chiefly because they get little recognition in the news and are excluded from party-sponsored debates. Rick Santorum’s unlikely rise in the 2012 primary lends some credence to this argument.

However, the media making strategic calculations about candidate access to press has already been tried with the Equal Time Rule of the FCC’s disastrous Fairness Doctrine. The problem is, though seemingly done in the name of fairness, these kind of decisions mask the real political consciousness media adopts. Double standards may be applied, but, since the media controls the coverage, its hard for the public to know whether “fairness” is actually the standard since other stories that might be important are not covered, meaning they tend to fade into oblivion.

But an activist role, where the media picks and chooses what stories to cover based on their assessment of a candidate’s seriousness is equally troublesome. Again, the media is infused with a consciousness that has the power to shape and influence political outcomes.

What’s the solution? As with many things in a democratic system, the discretionary power of the individual. With most media models driven by ad revenue, page clicks or viewership is the literal lifeblood of a news organization. Especially where politics are concerned, pundits have a right to make coverage decisions as they see fit. But that doesn’t mean people have to accept spin they find unfair.

The coverage surrounding Trump is a tremendous example of this. It is likely much of the negative press aimed at Trump is driven by personal dislike. Frankly, there’s a lot to dislike. If this sentiment resonates with public opinion, there’s nothing wrong with it. But, if it doesn’t, individuals need to take their consumer power somewhere else so media elites don’t become the equivalent of campaign strategists.

Welcome To The Obama Caliphate

Obviously Obama assumes that the Republican-dominated legislative branch is just for show, and since the idiot Republicans in the House and the Senate have told him that they will not seriously oppose him with impeachment, our dear leader is assuming dictatorial powers pedal-to-the-metal, most recently with the National Labor Relations Board planning to override the states’ right-to-work laws, and HUD’s plan to destroy middle class neighborhoods by placing welfare housing projects in them.

Obama has already unconstitutionally taken control of healthcare and immigration, is now working hand-in-glove with Iran to get nuclear weapons into their hands, has taken control of the internet via the recent FCC vote to establish government control in that area, and he has expressed an interest is raising taxes on Americans independently of Congress (an act which would cause corporations to vacate America for foreign shores due to uncertainty as to whether Obama would next nationalize them completely, and an act which would cause even more unemployment due to uncertainty in the general economy, and uncertainty and chaos are  exactly what Obama wants to sow in America, thereby hastening his ability to exercise complete control via martial powers).  Obama has repeatedly demonstrated an affinity with Muslim extremists/murders around the world, so his moves can’t be seen as a surprise by anyone who has been paying attention.  When this evil man says he will “fundamentally transform America”, he by-God means it.

Welcome to the new Obama Caliphate.  Unless we can convince our dim-witted Republican legislators to seriously oppose this lying, evil administration, all we can do it sit back and enjoy the view as Obama and his criminal allies in the Middle East destroy our lives (and the lives of our children and our grandchildren) before our very eyes.

We must increase sanctions on Iran to destroy their economy and prevent their developing nuclear weapons, and Congress must impeach Obama, and do it NOW!!

Can I get a courtesy flush please?

With all the news swirling around (see what I did there) in the media this week there was little attention paid to what’s behind the recent drop in Hillary’s numbers. Why, you ask? Because it seems like people are so polarized by male-female (can I still use those terms?) white-black, gay-straight (to name just a few) that we must, at all costs, ignore any and all evidence that just might convict a Dem. The Left is so desperate to hang something on a potential Republican presidential candidate that with some heavy digging they found out a few things:

Scott walker has credit card debt! He could owe as much as a combined $100 thousand to various credit card companies. Walker has given almost $375 thousand of his salary back to taxpayers. He has 2 kids in college, parents who live with him, and can you believe… a mortgage. You would think a rich, white Republican (as they all are) would have paid cash for his house, or at least his car? Nope, he has a car payment.

Let’s sum it all up… He has a mortgage, 2 kids in college, a car payment, parents living with him, major credit card debt, and a net worth of NEGATIVE $72 thousand! That can’t be right. He’s a Republican. Ask any low information voter and they will tell you, all Republicans are rich, old, white guys who hate women!

Scott Walker is the lowest net worth candidate running for president! Bernie Sanders is just above him with a net worth of $330 thousand. Isn’t it interesting that we know so much about Walker’s finance, family, and background in such a short period of time? All of his information was easily accessible.

On the other hand… What we know about Mr. Obama is that he fought a legal battle for 3 years to seal all his records. Transparency is not his long suit. Prior to becoming president, he got 17 tickets… in 4 years! Mr. Obama likes to do things faster than most, you know, like running up our national debt and fostering race wars. As is his custom in making last minute decisions, it seems he paid his tickets just before he ran for office. He got them in college, but didn’t pay them until just before he was elected president. I guess he was weighing all his options and didn’t want to make a knee jerk decision about doing the right thing! The press didn’t report on this. Weird. Yet, they are stuck on Mr. and Mrs. Rubio’s 17 parking tickets received (AND PAID) over the last 18 years! OMG! He must be park-o-phobic, you know… unable to or afraid to use a parking space as intended. The parking tickets were for both he and his wife, and guess what? That info wasn’t sealed.

Enter Mrs. Clinton……………..

Why Supporting Republicans is So Hard for Conservatives

Constantly voting for the lesser of two evils gets tiring and even more so when the “lesser” decides that most of the concerns of the electorate are not that important.

The GOP are weak on the second amendment (thank God for the supreme court – ie. Heller), seriously sucking wind on fixing the national debt and are almost absent on their promise to repeal the national travesty known as Obamacare. It is easy to point out their failures on tax reform, minimizing welfare, immigration and helping to create jobs.

Republican leadership has taken advantage of the conservative movement for decades, then again, the conservative movement has not uniquely and simply quantified its desires since the mid-20th century.

Frank Meyer laid out that [Conservatives]:

  • They accept “an objective moral order” of “immutable standards by which human conduct should be judged.”
  • Whether they emphasize human rights and freedoms or duties and responsibilities, they unanimously value “the human person” as the center of political and social thought.
  • They oppose liberal attempts to use the State “to enforce ideological patterns on human beings.”
  • They reject the centralized power and direction necessary to the “planning” of society.
  • They join in defense of the Constitution “as originally conceived.”
  • They are devoted to Western civilization and acknowledge the need to defend it against the “messianic” intentions of Communism.

Can most modern-day Republicans live up to these black-and-white standards after decades of being shown that the word “is” might have multiple definitions or that white is black and male is female?

Consider these principles as you read the next news article or watch some talking head on T.V. Simply ask – are they protecting my RIGHTS or giving them away. Are they opposing liberal attempts to enforce ideology on Americans? Are they diminishing the central government’s power to plan our society? Are they devoted to Western civilization?

Sometimes the lesser of two evils is the choice we each must make, but that doesn’t make it any easier.

Rachel Dolezal’s Complexion Problem

She's either a giant Q-Tip or preparing to become a human cannonball.

She’s either a giant Q-Tip or preparing to become a human cannonball.

Elizabeth Warren meet Rachel Dolezal. Or better yet, Liawatha meet Fauxprah. Talk about your sisters from another mother! One pretends to be an Indian to exploit the racial spoils system on the East Coast. While the other undergoes what Zorro & The Blue Footballs called the “race change operation” to become black and abuse that quota system on the West Coast.

When Warren’s deception was discovered her nicknames became very colorful: Crockagawea, Fauxcahontas and Liawatha were some of the best. Dolezal and her blackface masquerade also have great potential. In just a few minutes I’ve come up with Josephine Faker, Liah Angelou, Phony Morrison, Nodetta and Fauxprah. You can create your own, but hurry, Rachel’s notoriety won’t last as long as Elizabeth’s, unless she can find enough deluded Democrats to elect her to office, too.

Dolezal’s transformation started slowly. Her parents adopted four black orphans. This act of kindness had a bizarre impact on blonde, blue–eyed Rachel. Maybe it was the attention they received. Maybe it was the melatonin.

Eventually she applied for a scholarship to historically black Howard University in Washington, DC. Family members couldn’t help but notice she sounded more like Hattie McDaniel during her phone interviews than white–bread Rachel, but their surprise was nothing compared to the shock in the admissions office at Howard when Goldilocks walked in the door.

Her time there was not without incident. She attempted a failed lawsuit against university for racial and sex discrimination. I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she got tired of being called “Snowflake” and decided to do something about it.

Her mistake may have been combining Man Tan with Jheri Curl in a single session. She dozed off as Rachel and woke up as Fakey Minaj. After listening to Michelle I was under the impression life as a black woman was tough: subtle insults at state dinners, news media hanging on your every word and people at Target asking you to reach for items on the top shelf.

But here’s Rachel volunteering for duty. She had a brief marriage to a black man — it may have caused problems when he asked why a black woman had to spend so much time on the tanning bed — and then moved to Spokane to become the Al Sharpton of the organic clothing crowd.

And that proved to be the beginning of the end. Spokane is not all that far from her parent’s home in Montana and as Rachel’s profile increased it was only a matter of time before someone made the connection.

In retrospect Dolezal is almost a cliché. First she tries too hard. Rachel grew this huge, unruly mop of Rasta hair that I thought was supposed to be confined under a large knit cap. But no, she piles it on top of her head and as a result she looks like a cross between giant Q–Tip or a human cannonball testing a new shock absorption system.

She uses her chemically–induced race to become chair of the Seattle Police Ombudsman Commission where she searches for police brutality. Rachel claims her adopted black brother is actually her son. Ben Shapiro has unearthed an interview with The Easterner where she says the family lived in a teepee, dad hunted with a bow and arrow and they had to flee to South Africa where she was abused with a Boer whip.

Rachel claims to be a professor when she’s not; says she was date raped but didn’t file charges; explains her hair is blonde because she had cancer and whines that someone painted a swastika on the door of an office where she worked.

Essentially Dolezal is a leftist grievance recycling center masquerading as a human. The only thing she hasn’t claimed to justify her ethnic transformation is dad was the “black sheep” of the family.

Now it’s all come crashing down. She had to resign from the NAACP, the police stopped investigating her hate crime magnetism, the university didn’t renew her contract and the black man she claims is her father disowned her.

The only good news for our drama queen is the gullible and superficial media is flying her east to appear on network TV. And there are rumors of an endorsement deal with Fake Bake.

Before she resigned, authentic members of the NAACP were starting a petition to force Rachel to take a leave of absence during the controversy. Her resignation pre–empts that, but some alone time might come in handy. Rachel could try to get in touch with her roots. I hear Scandinavia is very nice this time of year.

Under Obama, Everything Is A “New Normal”

We’ve been told for years that Bush and the capitalists destroyed our economy and increased unemployment and that we must accept the reality of reduced opportunity and stolen liberty that George Bush left behind.  But it appears that under our beloved leader and ruler, Barack Obama, everything has only gotten ominously worse, so now we have to accept the “new normal” that Obama has given us.

Because of the unconstitutional Obamacare and the onslaught of unlawful regulations by the EPA, unemployment is up greatly and wages are stagnant at best.  And because Obama doesn’t have the brains or the courage to make difficult decisions, he dithers (except when a fast decision is needed that will negatively impact the middle class and the economy), and in the case of ISIS, his indecision is allowing our enemy to win and is assuring that terrorist activity around the world will continue and likely increase.  It’s also causing greater fear in Israel because Obama’s pals campaigned against Netanyahu in the latest election there, and because Obama says he will not support Israel if fighting breaks out in the area.

Obama, along with the Commie New York Mayor, Bill DeBlasio, and accompanied by the racist activist Maryland prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby and the Mayor of Baltimore, has greatly and negatively impacted the police forces of the United States.  New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Ferguson, Dallas and other cities have experienced major attacks on police officers with the threat of more attacks to come, because leftists don’t want criminals to be punished.

The nations of the world that used to be our allies have wisely learned to NOT trust Obama and are looking at the U.S. as a flawed nation that can’t be trusted to keep its word nor do the right thing when action is required.

Under Obama the office of the president has taken on dictatorial powers as Obama issues unconstitutional executive orders in rapid succession.  Immigration has become a critical item as our president invites illegals to cross our borders, hires transportation and lodging for these invaders well in advance of their arrival and then whisks them away to hide throughout the nation.  How many of the children illegally entering our country were beaten, tortured and raped along the course of their long trek?  And how many were enslaved or killed along the long and dangerous path that we’ll never hear of? This last point is important because it’s part of Obama’s plan that the children will come here alone and unprotected by parents, and then our government will pay to have their parents flown to the U.S. to join them, using the idiotic logic that Americans want families to live together, not be separated, so Mom and Pop are flown here instead of flying the children back home.

Even if it’s true that more Americans have healthcare now than ever before, under Obamacare millions of Americans lost the coverage they wanted, liked and could afford, and many who are now on Obamacare can’t afford to use it because of the high deductibility rates of Obama’s plan, so these unfortunates are effectively, again, without health care.

Obama is proving his untrustworthiness in the nuclear talks with Iran.  He won’t impose sanctions that will hurt the Mullahs and he won’t insist on instant investigations to check on illegal development of nuclear weapons.  In short, Obama is aiding the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons.  The civilized world is shocked at his stupidity, but Americans know this is just what you get when a community organizer promises to “fundamentally transform America”.

And next comes the social engineering that Obama became president for.  The HUD plan to establish government welfare housing in middle class communities throughout the nation is being pushed hard by the administration.  This means that middle class housing that most Americans aspire to will have their property values destroyed so people who have not had any ambition or discipline in their lives, who have not taken the effort to get a decent education, who have not put off having children until they were economically stable, and who have not gotten a job and stayed employed, are going to be taking over the more desirable neighborhoods.  And, as already discussed, these welfare people will be moving into these unsuspecting, pleasant neighborhoods with the police forces already under physical and verbal attack by liberals and criminals alike, and whose officers have begun to back off from enforcing laws out of fear of themselves being killed or prosecuted for just being police and enforcing the law.

Obama’s repeated, unending soft attacks on America have reduced its citizens’ expectations of living a prosperous and successful life and have created a lowered “new normal” level of evaluating what’s good and bad and how much of it we can and should expect.  We have been manipulated into accepting higher unemployment, more crime, less income, a weakened and reduced military and less liberty.  And when that happens Barry becomes the winner and is totally successful in his presidency.

Republicans wage a war against women (this from Hillary who attacked women who dared to complain about her husband, Bill, who remains a liberal role model, abusing and raping women).

Hillary is honest.

And there is actually some tradition and history to back up these idiot claims: Didn’t Bill Clinton self-proclaim himself to be the first black president?  And didn’t Barack Obama recently state that he’s the closest thing to a Jew in the White House that America has had?  With liberals, up is down and down is up.  Black is white and white is black. Male is female and female is male.  So who’s the craziest? And these people want to rule this nation?  God help us!

 

Government Schools In Your Home

Recently a friend of mine was telling me her daughter was having a drink with a friend after work when after a while her friend had to excuse herself for a P.T.O. meeting.  When her daughter asked her why so late she responded, “Oh  we don’t go there anymore, they come to us.” WHAAAAT????

This prompted me to do some research and what I found was, while innocent and good intentioned on the outside, was chilling in other aspects indeed. Apparently this has been going on for the last 15 years at least and is a law in15 states. The idea is to build better relationships with the families of the student and the school. St. Paul Minnesota  has such a plan and is a good example:

 The Saint Paul Federation of Teachers is a regional training site for the National Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project started in Sacramento, California over 15 years ago.  Today, the project has spread to over 15 states across the country.  More information can be found at www.pthvp.org.

SPFT provides training on how to conduct effective home visits, along with other strategies for building partnerships between parents and teachers.

In only three years our project has grown from 6 teachers trained visiting about 15 families, to a total of 500+ teachers trained today and over 500 families visited last year.  We have also begun to train outside of St. Paul.  We have trained two schools in Colombia Heights and one in Eau Clair, WI.  SPFT’s work has been noticed and featured in the Pioneer Press, Star Tribune, and the Twin City Daily Planet.  Last fall our work was featured on NBC’s Today Show during Education Nation.

 Visits with Parents

 Forge a strong partnership with parents by meeting them on their own turf.

 Sometimes it’s hard to get the help you need from parents in getting their children motivated and ready to learn—especially when the parents didn’t go to school themselves or had a bad time of it.

There are many approaches to enlisting parents’ support. The program outlined here was developed by parents and teachers working together in Sacramento, California, with strong support from the Sacramento City Teachers Association. It has been used in hundreds of schools in six states.

(Visit www.teachervisits.org for more.)

Before you start:

At least half of the faculty should want to do it.

Nobody should be forced to do it or punished for not doing it.

Everybody who does it should be paid.

Typically, there’s a three-hour training program before the home visits start.

Preparing for a visit:

Don’t visit only kids in trouble. That puts a stigma on getting a visit. Go see everybody, or if that’s not possible, be sure to include at least some students who are doing well.

When you call to set up a visit, offer alternative times—few parents will say no if you’re flexible. Most visits are in the afternoon or on weekends. If the parents are uncomfortable inviting you into their home, meet at a coffee shop, a library, or even a park.

Go with a partner—two teachers or a teacher and a support professional.

At the meeting:

  1. Have everyone explain his or her relationship to the student. Usually, the student is there.
  2. Getting to know you. Find out whether the parents have other children in school. What’s been their experience in schools up until now?
  3. Most important. The hopes and dreams conversation. Ask the parents about their dreams for their student, and share yours. You will probably discover you have much in common. “To stop and say why you do what you do—that can be very powerful for the teacher, not just the parent,” says Carrie Rose, who directs the Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project.
  4. Explain what you need from the parent, and ask what the parent would like you to do. (Often, parents ask how they can contact you.)

If possible, don’t come with papers and don’t take notes. Parents will feel you are evaluating them. If you must deliver information, like the bell schedule or graduation requirements, don’t pull out any paper for at least 20 minutes.

The typical meeting lasts 30 to 45 minutes.

 Then there are situations such as this that happened to one teacher:

 “When we started, home visits were not part of the culture, and some parents would not let us come to the home. One mom had a lot of problems, including drugs. She had had her kids taken away before. She reluctantly agreed to meet at a McDonald’s, but she would not open up.

“Her children had poor attendance, and we were trying to impress on her that she needed to get them to school on time. Her answers were curt. The whole meeting was over in 10 or 15 minutes.

While this program apparently seems successful, with today’s liberal establishment controlling the education dept. and with all the NSA spying on us there are other scenarios that can arise. For instance, a teacher wanders into a home and sees a gun rack and books by Dick Cheney and Ann Coulter. The teacher can report back to the supervisor that the family are  right wing extremists or a teacher wanders into a home with a cross on the wall and a bible on a table, the teacher can report back that the family is of the religious right. It can’t happen here you say? Well as soldier was just court martialed for having a bible on her desk. No, no, no it can’t happen here they say, but it does.

What’s The Difference Between Criminals And Liberals? Not Much!

Criminals lie about their culpability in crimes (as in: Not guilty, your honor).

Liberals lie about their political intentions (as in: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor).

 

Criminals take your money (as in: Hands up. Your money or your life).

Liberals take your money (as with the IRS: we’re just seeking economic justice for the vast underclass who have been so miserably mistreated these many years under the scourge of capitalism).

 

Criminals conduct illegal aliens across our border.

Liberals state that immigration is “broken”, that they won’t enforce current immigration laws, and as a result illegal aliens flood across our border.

 

The definition of a criminal is one who disobeys or violates laws, and criminals will disobey any law they disagree with or that they find inconvenient.  Obama has selectively enforced the laws he likes but has publicly stated that he will allow illegal aliens to cross our border at their leisure, and then identifies the resulting border disaster as proof that he must ignore current immigration law and create new law that he likes better and finds more convenient for his political purposes.

Even the argument that liberals make asserting that the money they take from the earners helps the poor and underprivileged is a lie because time and decades of ever-expanding welfare have shown that the pittance welfare recipients get from the government only entraps them in poverty, with the intention, by the liberals dishing out the money, that the recipients will vote liberal in future elections.

Walter Williams has frequently made the point that much of our tax money is just legalized theft (take from those who earn money and give to those who don’t earn but only take), and he’s correct.  If citizen A takes money from citizen B to give to citizen C it’s considered theft.  But the government can take B’s money all day long and give it to C, D and a host of other worthy citizens of the government’s choosing (including vast wastefulness and duplication, also of the government’s choosing) and this is called compassion.

This lawlessness on the part of our president must stop or all laws will eventually be ignored and chaos will rule, and chaos is exactly what Obama wants and needs to further “fundamentally transform” America.

Surprise! Scientists ‘Crack Code’ to Happiness

I love this quote by illustrious NASA scientist Dr. Robert Jastrow (1925-2008): “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

I would just add to Dr. Jastrow’s keen insight, that it’s not merely theologians at large who have long lounged atop Mount Understanding. It is, more precisely, Judeo-Christian theologians. Indeed, with time and chance, even science can eventually catch up to God’s Word.

Case in point: Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic is one of the world’s most prestigious health institutions. With much fanfare, researchers there announced last week that they have “cracked the code to being happy.” “Imagine scientists coming up with an actual formula for happiness – a specific recipe for lifelong contentment and joy,” they tease.

Well, my forlorn little friends, imagine no more. These scientists boast of having “created just such a formula based on neuroscience and psychology.” For a mere $15.95 – less than your daily dose of Zoloft and vodka – they’ll rush off to you “The Mayo Clinic Handbook for Happiness,” a “four-step self-help process” to finding “a lifetime of joy and contentment.”

“Happiness is a habit,” says the study’s chief researcher Dr. Amit Sood in the Daily Mail. “Some of us are born with it; others have to choose it.”

“Previous research has shown that our minds are hard-wired to focus on negative experiences. For our ancestors,” continues the report, being perpetually PO’ed, “helped them stay alive, providing an evolutionary advantage in the face of danger.” (Some of us attribute this to mankind’s fallen, selfish, sinful nature, but we can go with that whole evolution thingy if it makes them feel better.)

Concludes the Daily Mail: “The book makes readers focus on a different positive emotion each day, such as gratitude, forgiveness and kindness.”

Wait. Hold the Mayo. This is déjà vu all over again. What “book” are we talking about here? Where have we heard all this before – talk of gratitude, forgiveness, kindness and whatnot, leading to joy, contentment, happiness and so forth?

Anyway, click over to Mayo’s related “How to be happy” page and you’re given a little more detail.

“People who are happy seem to intuitively know that their happiness is the sum of their life choices, and their lives are built on the following pillars:

  • Devoting time to family and friends
  • Appreciating what they have
  • Maintaining an optimistic outlook
  • Feeling a sense of purpose
  • Living in the moment

Look, I’m glad you’re getting the message out, guys, but, c’mon, plagiarize much? This isn’t a revolutionary “formula” “created” by “scientists” and “based on neuroscience and psychology.” While it’s all true, you’re a bit late to the game. Dr. Jastrow’s theologians have been well acclimated to this lofty altitude for, oh, about 2,000 years. You guys have more degrees than a thermometer. You should know to cite your original source.

So, let’s break it down. Though there are many to choose from, and while the following is in no way comprehensive, let’s contrast Mayo’s “breakthrough” happiness pillars to but a few of their long-established counterparts in the original “handbook for happiness:”

Devoting time to family and friends

“Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24-25).”

“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).”

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends (John 15:12-13).”

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity (Proverbs 17:17).”

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor (Romans 12:10).”

Appreciating what they have

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’ (Hebrews 13:5).”

“Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world (1 Timothy 6:6-8).”

“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content (Philippians 4:11).”

Maintaining an optimistic outlook

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).”

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9).”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).”

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds (James 1:2).”

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (Proverbs 17:22).”

Feeling a sense of purpose

I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me (Psalm 57:2).”

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might (Ecclesiastes 9:10).”

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands (Psalm 138:8).”

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end – it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay (Habakkuk 2:3).”

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men (Colossians 3:23).”

Living in the moment

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34).”

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them (Matthew 6:31, 32).”

“As it is said, ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion’ (Hebrews 3:15).”

Still, ultimately, Jesus Himself sums it all accordingly: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me (John 14:1).”

The Mayo Clinic’s pilfered wisdom notwithstanding, that, my friends, is “the actual formula for happiness.”
