Happy Birthday America?

ObamaUncleSam

You know that awkward moment when you go to your wife’s, aunt Mabel’s, second cousin’s 96th birthday party? She is in a wheelchair, doesn’t really know who is in the room with her, and has to be fed and cleaned by others. Everyone remembers when she was a vibrant, smart, and loving person, not always nice, but always fair. She helped whenever she could. You don’t know whether to wish her “Happy Birthday with many more to come” or “God’s speed” to be in the presence of the Almighty, pain-free and without earthly shackles.

I felt that way this past week. How was I going to wish America a Happy Birthday when I wasn’t really sure if the America we all know and love would exist as that “shining city on the hill” next year or in years to come?

America’s birthday (4th of July), according to John Quincy Adams, and Christmas (birth of Christ) were intrinsically connected. He went on to imply that on the 4th the Founders simply took the precepts of Christ and incorporated those principles into civil government.

The Founders understood that for America to survive it had to have a solid code by which it functioned and existed. It had to have a moral compass and guide. But who’s? And what kind?

The French? No, that was a monarchy and tyranny. The Spanish? More of the same. The Brits? That’s what they were running away from. The Germans? Who?

They wanted freedom for man. None of these provided that. The ultimate power was in a King, a man. That’s not what they wanted. They wanted freedom for the citizenry to choose their leaders, their way of life, their religion, to start or not start a business, to celebrate or not celebrate Christmas or any other holiday! Complete freedom!

The America my grandparents came to live in, the one my mom came to live in, the one I saw those many immigrants that came to the Italian North End of Boston to work and start their own business in is no longer here. Now for clarity, many of the immigrants I have spoken with over the last year say America is still much better than where they came from, but that even they have seen freedoms erode since arriving.

We no longer have 3 branches of government. We have one. The chief and grand supreme dictator, Barrack Obama. His pen and his phone will do all the work. His “Capos” will carry out his commands and he will run America the way he sees fit. It won’t matter what his experts say. It won’t matter what history has seen. It won’t even matter if the facts and figures show him to be wrong. He will continue do it his way.

Great presidents before him understood how the Constitution worked and usually reached out to all parties. Reagan and Tip O’Neil worked together, Clinton and Gingrich did too, and they got things done. It was not uncommon for those presidents to call the speaker of the house and others over to discuss working through these issues with both sides giving and taking to come up with a solution.

No Borders, No Rules = Dictatorship!

king-obama1

This was a heavy news week. Tens of thousands of illegals trampled over our borders. Where is the President? Out campaigning. The head of the IRS knew about the missing or lost emails at the last hearing, yet said nothing! Where is the President? Out campaigning! Five very nasty terrorists are released for one U.S. soldier. Where is the president? Out campaigning.

What’s he campaigning for? He already won. We are stuck with him 2.5 more years, maybe! (The smell of impeachment is in the air.) Many of the Democrats running for office don’t want him involved. Some have even asked him to stay away!

The Prez went on attacking Republicans for all his failures. Apparently, the man can’t take responsibility for anything. Anyone who thinks they are right all the time is a danger to himself and to others.

Since I’ve been doing my radio show, (now over 700 of them “in the can”) I have done many stories where this President has failed the American people miserably. At first I thought it was incompetence. I thought maybe his years as a community organizer just didn’t expose him to enough to be a real leader. Surely his years in the legislature surely would have prepared him for the decision-making duties of a president? Right? I’m sure all those “present” votes on tough issues had to teach him something.

Yes, those experiences, and many others, have put him in a position to be the worst president in American history! By now many Dems are begging to have Jimmy Carter back. In fact, I suspect many Republicans would rather have him back, as well!

We’ll pause here a moment to allow some of you to shout “racist” simply because I don’t agree with or like the president. PAUSE. OK, now back to reality.

This president doesn’t care for our borders, at all. He has the money for it but has not finished the border fence. Why doesn’t he care? He doesn’t want borders. If he did, he would finish the fence, send down the guards, and protect Americans. He’s not interested.

It’s interesting that Mexico usually captures, beats, and returns those who cross over their southern borders illegally. Apparently that is no longer the case. We are seeing an influx of illegals coming from South America and Mexico at record numbers. Instead of following our own deportation rules, the president has told his people that we are to care for, document, feed, and clothe those coming over the border illegally. We can’t help our veterans. Only the illegals. We have homeless vets that we can’t put in some of the military bases across the country, but we can, fly, bus, and truck illegals in to occupy those places. We can fly in medical personnel and supplies, but we can’t do the same for our vets.

This president complained about Mr. Bush’s overreach of power and the many executive orders that Mr. Bush signed, however, he is catching up to that number fast! And, if you “lefties” were being honest, there is a difference between the type of executive orders Mr. Bush signed and the ones that Mr. Obama has signed. A majority of Mr. Obama’s executive orders change laws. That’s what the legislative branch is supposed to do. Mr. Bush’s executive orders largely revolved around sending needed medical supplies to third world nations, including Africa, to help stop the spread of HIV.

This president’s continuous lies (not misspeaks) about his healthcare plan, NSA spying, the Mexican-American gun-running scheme, his Benghazi cover-up, his IRS targeting conservatives, DOJ spying on the press, and too many more to list here. I could eat up this whole article listing how this president runs his office as a dictator.

His recent comments about how he will not wait for Congress shows his disdain for the American people, our laws, and way of life. If he loved the people and the country, he would abide by the laws he swore to uphold. But the truth for him is very hard to find.

Sure… Bergdahl Left Because His Platoon Was Full of Psychopaths.

party9

What are the chances? Now we have a senior ranking official in the Obama administration suggesting that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s entire platoon was crazy. Because that’s so much more likely than just one guy deserting?

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Brandon Friedman went so far as to call members of Bergdahl’s platoon “psychopaths”. Seriously? Someone needs to check on this Friedman guy. There’s a lot of speculation and theory about what happened to Bergdahl

Why Mainstreet Media Won’t Touch Gosnell Movie

JoeMIC1

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is the most prolific serial killer in American History, but almost no one knows who he is. Mainstream media or Hollywood don’t think it is a story, even though Gosnell killed more people than Gary Ridgeway, John Wayne Gacey, The Zodiac Killer, and Ted Bundy combined! In a 30 year killing spree, it is thought he killed 1000’s of babies. And that wasn’t a national story? But Jodi Arias, who was on trial at the same time as Gosnell, for killing her boyfriend, just one person, was national news EVERY DAY. Ann McElhinney joins Joe today to discuss the Gosnell Movie project and how we can all help.

Is Truth Alive, Anywhere?

TruthLies

I have had this mindset that truth prevails and I believe truth will always win, eventually, not always at first, but it will always win. The Bible calls the truth “light” and light always drives out darkness.

It seems in today’s society truth is a fleeting 140 character or less thing. Mainstream media can’t find it if you put it in a bag marked with flares. The president, being the constitutional scholar that he is, can’t even spell it.

When President Obama interviewed with Bill O’Reilly he said there were no scandals. I guess he doesn’t know what a scandal is. According to Websters Dictionary, a scandal is:

an action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage.
“a bribery scandal involving one of his key supporters”

synonyms:   (outrageous) wrongdoing, impropriety, misconduct, immoral behavior, unethical behavior, discreditable behavior, outrageous behavior

Let’s focus on the synonym “wrongdoing.” The IRS targeted 99% of applications received from conservative-sounding applicants using keywords like, liberty, constitution, and freedom (very nasty words!) According to IRS rules, that was WRONG and evidence of this can be found in MANY emails sent by Lois Lerner and the other IRS personnel. Mr. President, that, according to the dictionary, is a classic example of a scandal.

Remember in the interview, Mr. Obama said there were no scandals. I guess they were just “FoxTales” (my words not his.)

He might as well just say, “I have a pen and I’ll pass my own laws.” Those of you who are going to tell me that President Bush (and others) signed more executive orders than Obama, wake up! There are executive orders, and then, there are EXECUTIVE ORDERS.

Pardoning the turkeys on Thanksgiving is done by executive order, really deep. Re-writing the healthcare law by executive order circumvents the value of the three branches of government. That’s a problem. Mr. Obama sees this as a dictatorship, not a democratic republic, where he can say or do anything he wants because he is king. He has issued over 22 executive orders to modify a LAW. That is not the intent of an executive order.

Why doesn’t he follow the law he swore to uphold? Why not just acknowledge that we need to fix this law that was passed too quickly? Why? Because this administration has never done anything wrong. They take responsibility for nothing.

He has a default script in his teleprompter. The Republicans are blocking us. It’s because of climate change and if the Republicans would pass the bill we could fix this. If the speaker could get control of his members we could pass my jobs bill (that doesn’t exist.)

We should move the White House to Walt Disney World and put it in the land of “make believe” where it belongs under this administration.

According to Forbes, “frustrated by the inability of Congress to pass immigration reform, Obama kicked off his own set of reforms by executive order, halting the legal deportation of thousands of immigrants in the U.S. illegally.” Another shining example of King Obama writing law on his own.

Blacks, Homosexuals, and Atheists at CPAC 2014 – OH MY!

racial-diversity-585x481

Can you believe that the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held by a group of white, elitist, stuffy old men was infiltrated by blacks, homosexuals, Hispanics, Asians, and atheists? Oh my! What is this world coming to?

What’s really crazy is that so many on the Left wrote lies about this. No, not mis-truths, not misspeaks, just lies… period.

The Left would have you believe that CPAC = KKK. That Conservative’s and conservative Republicans are nothing more than the KKK rebranded. How desperate is that?

The first story I read talked about how CPAC threw out a bunch of atheists and wouldn’t allow “them” at the event. CPAC made the right call. It wasn’t all atheists. Just one particular group.

CPAC officials who originally approved the atheist group’s booth and accepted a check for their sponsorship and entry cancelled it after they received validated information that the group was going to try to disrupt the event. An event where over 3000 people were going to be in a relatively small area. Good call. The Left spins it as “Atheist Kept from CPAC.” Isn’t that what they always do? No real argument. The full truth won’t work for them, so they spin it a little to aggravate their base. It’s the equivalent to, if you’re losing the game flip the board.

I also heard that gays and lesbians were not welcome, really? One of my interns and helpers is a lesbian. (Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone, I may get thrown out of the conservative playground.) Did I know before they started? No! Why? Because, contrary to popular belief, our applications don’t ask if you are gay, lesbian, transgender, black, Asian or anything other than a white heterosexual. Oh, and, we don’t care. As long as you can do the job.

And once again, the Left starts to lose the argument… time to flip the board!
In years gone by, the Left had infiltrated the group, by lying. In 2012, a large group of far-left progressives bought into premium seats as being part of a “conservative magazine group.” The whole goal was to disrupt the keynote speaker. When the speaker started, about 50 of these “liars” got up to protest. In response, over 400 people in the room started shouting USA and the “liars” were drowned out. Desperation really makes for fools doesn’t it?

Many of the Left can’t accept anything someone like me has to say… at all… ever. They are so opposed to any conservative idea that without even checking out the facts and the inability to control their tongues, they come out and try to invalidate any and all conservative points. Doesn’t that really help us come together as a country and a people? No, not really.

Their argument is losing steam. Americans are starting to do their own homework.

By the way, as a point of fact, it was the Left, the progressive Democrats, the “big tent” party that started, supported, and funded the KKK. I guess the easiest way to get out of an uncomfortable situation (or history) is to deflect and blame someone else. They are very good at it.

In my 3 days at CPAC, I found out that over 50% of those in attendance were students! (Not old white guys!) About half of “Radio Row” were “Other than White” (did I just create a new classification “OTW”?) As I looked around the room when Sarah Palin was speaking, was it a majority “white” yes. Was there a sea of OTW’s? Yes!

When Ben Carson, Al Cardenas, Ted Cruz, John Barraso, Bobby Jindal, Tim Scott and the many panels that had OTW’s on them, the same sea of people was there. That really confused me. For a group supposedly made up of old, white, bigoted, homophobic racists who exclude anyone who isn’t like them, there sure was a lot of OTW’s there to address the crowd! And they were well-received! Shocked? I wasn’t.

You see the reality is that we don’t care. We don’t care what color you are, who you sleep with, or where you came from. When I got on the plane I didn’t check to see if the pilot was black, homosexual, gay, straight, or even a Christian. I only cared that he could fly the plane.

Conservatives care that you can do the job and that you are adhering to our laws. We want you to have been given the same opportunities that everyone else has and expect that you will respect my freedom as much as you want me to respect yours. We also expect that you will take responsibility for your own errors and missteps, and work to make them right.

Be a good American… black, white, Asian, Hispanic, gay, straight, short, tall, large, small… we don’t care. Just do the right thing.

America, you better wake up or lose your country.

Faith Breeds Foolishness?

FaithFools

Ever notice that when you strike up a conversation about faith or make faith remarks in front of those ignorant to faith that they either chuckle or make some kind of snide remark. No, it doesn’t happen every time, but most of the time, it does.

You see, every Friday on my radio show I do a segment called “Faith Fridays” where I speak about issues of various faiths, from what they believe to how they operate. It’s been a regular thing for almost 3 years now and is a listener favorite. I bring in experts and people practicing that religion. I can talk about Buddhists, Spiritualists, pastafarians, and even Jews and Muslims with little or no blowback. But if I mention that a Christian has been persecuted or make a comment about what atheists have to look forward to after death, Twitter lights up like I’ve stuck these guys with a red hot poker in the eye!

One particular Friday I covered the story about the lesbian couple who made their debut in a popular Disney Channel show. I stated that there was no warning, no show teasers, nothing to let parents know what was coming. In my opinion, that was the wrong thing for Disney to do. Many religious parents who don’t approve of that lifestyle are blindsided by this kind of thing all the time through other avenues. With the Disney Channel, because they have always had tradition values in family shows, religious parents were lulled into a false sense of security when that changed.
Well, you would have thought I asked people to skin cats live in the town square! Between the Disney story and our Tweet asking for people to call in with their religious stories, the phones lit up like never before and Producer Tammy took about 30 calls in 30 or so minutes. Most said they wanted to talk about Christian bullying or tell their story. The games had begun!

People said they were calling in from all over the world, laying out stories to get them on the air to share their religious epiphany, outrage, confusion, you name it! Nearly every one of them was a prank call. Sometime after around the 5th caller, I made a statement that this is exactly how the Left operates. For some reason it seems they cannot disagree in conversation without being nasty and resorting to disrupting the flow of conversation. It’s the equivalent of tipping the game board over when you realize you’re losing and have no chance of winning.

The next caller tried to call me on the carpet and asked me why I thought all these calls were coming from left-leaning people. That was an easy one, and I don’t have a high I.Q. It’s simply because I have yet to hear any right-wing conservatives calling liberal radio shows and tell them how f^%#*&g stupid they are for believing in God or that Christians don’t have to follow Christ to be Christians or that Christians don’t have to read the Bible to be Christians. So I can be a heart surgeon by studying computer science? Or maybe a plumber by studying auto mechanics? Sure makes sense to me. And I have yet to hear right-wing conservatives simply calling with the intent purpose to disrupt a liberal show.

Why point a finger at the Left? Because they have great role models and examples by which to learn from: Pelosi, Reid, Weiner, Jackson Lee, Rangel. Should I go on? They’ve taken name-calling and distraction techniques to a new high. Yes, I heard over and over again how Christians were bullies and “stupid” for believing in a higher being. These fools only come out in force when I discuss faith.

When I listen to left-leaning radio shows, as I do to get ready for my show, I have yet to hear the Right do the things that were done to me, and others like me, on the show this past Friday.

People made up stories, I mean LIED, to get on and then start with the foul language or playing loud nasty music during the call. How mature! How enlightened! How proud they must feel. Some called in to show me they could make fun of Jesus to my face. Unlike other hosts, and to the irritation of some of my listeners, I let them go on until they used foul language and then cut them off. I wanted people to hear the default fallback position of the Left.

Why can’t the Left have an open and non-foul-mouthed, spoiled brat response when they start losing the argument? It’s almost like they never grew up or feel like they are owed something. And anyone who disagrees with them gives them license to act immature and stupid.

Hey! You on the Left who subscribe to these tactics… Why don’t you take that education you received on wasted taxpayer money and actually try to do something good. Have a real, open, non-juvenile, adult conversation with someone on the Right. Get an idea about how they think as a person, not just talking points. And if you really believe you’re right, try to sway them with good conversation. Or is that too much for you to do?

I guess if you are using Harry Reid’s playbook as your guide, then you are right on. Keep up the good work. Friday’s show proved me to be 100% correct. Most young, hard Left progressives have nothing to fight with but nasty conversation and demeaning words.

America, these people vote! You better wake up or lose your country.
