VP Pence Calls for Joy Behar to Publically Apologize – Why She Should

March 13, 2018


Last night, Vice-President Mike Pence appeared on Sean Hannity’s Program on The Fox News Channel. While there, he touched on a number of subjects, including the now-notorious incident in which Joy Behar insulted the VP (and all Christians) for having a personal relationship to Jesus Christ in which he talked to Him, saying that it was a “mental illness”.

Behar has since called Pence to apologize, as the following article posted on reports…

…“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you’ve been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.

Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I’m not as good at it as you.”

While Pence forgave Behar, he encouraged her to publically apologize.

“I’m still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended,” Pence said.

“You and I know that criticism comes with public life,” Pence added. “But, I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander.”

Behar’s call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week’s meeting with investors.

“What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?” shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday’s meeting. “Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?”

Iger responded by saying, “I don’t know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate.”

Iger told the crowd he was “glad to hear” Behar apologized because he “takes exception” to what she said. ABC insiders said executives initially wanted to keep the call between Behar and Pence, but Iger mentioned it while defending his company.

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar’s private apology was “not nearly enough” and promised to continue his campaign against “anti-Christian bigotry” at the network. Bozell’s watchdog group is presently running a campaign on behalf of aggrieved Christians, urging that viewers contact “View” advertisers about Behar’s “hateful, anti-Christian remarks.”

Despite the calls for a public apology from both Pence and Bozell, ABC insiders have told Fox News that it doesn’t appear that any action has taken place.

“ABC is doing absolutely nothing about this,” an ABC source recently told Fox News.

Why would Joy Behar make such an ignorant comment in the first place?

Well, gentle readers, Modern American Liberals like Behar want you to believe that Christian Americans are a bunch of nut jobs.

They have even rewritten history in their attempt to ignore the truth.

Those weren’t Muslims who came over on the Mayflower.

According to

There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country’s political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates – individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.

There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 “slots” or “positions” in these groups which one can classify as “Founding Fathers” of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of “Founding Fathers.” These are the people who did one or more of the following:

– signed the Declaration of Independence
– signed the Articles of Confederation
– attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
– signed the Constitution of the United States of America
– served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
– served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

Religious Affiliation of U.S. Founding Fathers

# of Founding Fathers/% of Founding Fathers

Episcopalian/Anglican 88 54.7%
Presbyterian 30 18.6%
Congregationalist 27 16.8%
Quaker 7 4.3%
Dutch Reformed/German Reformed 6 3.7%
Lutheran 5 3.1%
Catholic 3 1.9%
Huguenot 3 1.9%
Unitarian 3 1.9%
Methodist 2 1.2%
Calvinist 1 0.6%

Christianity, the faith of the overwhelming majority of Americans, has not only played a part in the birth of our nation, but also the shaping of its Domestic and Foreign Policies.

Liberals remain on a quest to separate the “Faith of Our Fathers” from day-to-day American Life and their Far Left Political Philosophy because they live by the mantra of relative morality and situational ethics.

That is why they always say, “All pathways lead to God”.

Just like the Founders fought against King George’s tyranny, Modern Christian Americans are still fighting against tyranny: “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

However, unlike the tyranny in England that our Founding Fathers escaped from, no one in this present free nation has ever been forced to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

And, that fact is extremely evident in some of the comments one sees on Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites.

But, I digress…

In recent times, especially under the Former Democrat President, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), a concerted effort was made to marginalize Christian Americans, putting us in a box if you will. A lot of Liberals and “libertarians” still seem to believe that Christian Americans should only practice our faith on Sunday Mornings from 9 – 12, and be seen and not heard the rest of week.

That is why Joy Behar, ABC, and The Disney Company were so surprised when Christians came to the defense of Vice-President Pence, sending letters and e-mails and making phone calls to the offices of ABC and The Disney Company, resulting in Behar’s private apology.

I agree with the VP. Behar now needs to apologize to the millions of Christian Americans whom she has offended.

However, I do not see that happening anytime soon.

…Unless the backlash continues and hits The Disney Company square in the pocketbook

Did Disney Make “Black-ish” Cancel an Episode About the NFL Protests?

March 12, 2018



“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!” – Donald J. Trump on Twitter

NBC Sports Pro Football Talk reports that

The ABC sitcom Black-ish has never shied away from hot-button political topics. But NFL anthem protests are apparently a bridge too far.

Kenya Barris, the creator of Black-ish, confirmed that ABC declined to run an episode of the show that included characters arguing over football players kneeling for the national anthem. The episode was set to run on February 27 but was replaced with a rerun, and ABC has no plans to air the episode or make it available on any other platform.

“Given our creative differences, neither ABC nor I were happy with the direction of the episode and mutually agreed not to air it,” Barris told Variety. “‘Black-ish’ is a show that has spoken to all different types of people and brought them closer as a community and I’m so proud of the series.”

There’s been no indication that the NFL leaned on Disney (which owns ABC and ESPN) not to air the show, although Disney has been accused of kowtowing to the NFL in the past. In 2013, a report that the NFL pressured ESPN to pull out of a PBS Frontline show about concussions was denied by the NFL. In 2003, the NFL convinced ESPN to cancel the entertainment show Playmakers, which depicted professional football players engaged in illegal activities.

Six months ago, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL needs to move past the anthem issue. Six months later, this latest controversy shows the country has still not moved past it.

Hey, gentle readers, do you want to know why the Commish said that the NFL needed to “move past” the protests six months ago?

And, why that episode of “Black-ish” did not air?

“Creative differences”, my hindquarters.

In both cases, it was all about the Benjamins.

Per from an article posted January 28th…

With the 2017 NFL season now down in the record books as having lost another ten percent in TV ratings, the league has found a $30 million dip in ad revenue, a report says.
As the final numbers for advertisement sales for the season were tallied, the league discovered that its revenue fell 1.2 percent because “makegoods” rose to beat rate increases. A makegood is a partial repayment of money charged to advertisers because the viewership did not reach the expected numbers to justify the top rate.

Revenue was reported at “$2.42 billion, down from $2.45 billion in 2016,” according to media industry trade magazine Ad Week. That is a $30 million loss according to Awful Announcing.

Even though advertisement rates went up on average across the networks, the hike in fees did not beat the paybacks that the league had to repay to its customers.

By November, Roger Goodell could fell the hot breath of torqued-off fans on the back of his neck. A Fox News Poll taken back then showed that

Forty-four percent think kneeling during the national anthem is appropriate, up from 41 percent who felt that way last month and 32 percent who said so last September.  Sill, a majority thinks it is inappropriate (52 percent).

Most Republicans (88 percent inappropriate vs. 12 percent appropriate), baby boomers (61-33 percent), men (60-37 percent), and whites (60-38 percent) think kneeling during the national anthem is inappropriate.

The opposite is true for Democrats (67 percent appropriate vs. 27 percent inappropriate), millennials (65-32 percent), and nonwhites (61-30 percent) who think kneeling is an apt form of protest.

Women (50 percent appropriate vs. 45 percent inappropriate) and independents (46-50 percent) are more divided on the issue.

Voters who have an unfavorable opinion of the N.F.L overwhelmingly think kneeling is inappropriate (78 percent), while those who view the NFL favorably think it’s appropriate (62 percent).

So, the question remains “Did Disney force the shelving of that episode of “Black-ish”?

I believe that they did.

The Disney Empire, including its Theme Parks, relies on the good will of average Americans.

If average Americans stop supporting Disney and all of their entities, including Disneyland and Disney World, the Disney Corporation will be in a world of hurt.

And, ABC is owned by Disney.

I believe that what we have witnessed in the case of the backlash against the NFL Protesters is the same thing that happened on November 8, 2016.

Just like the Presidential Election, average Americans decided that we had had enough of the intentional tearing apart of the fabric of our nation at the seams, for the sake of political expediency and selfish gain.

Just like the Democrats found out on November 8, 2016, average Americans will tolerate being abused and lectured to for only so long, before we let you know “how the cow ate the cabbage”.

And, in the case of the 2017 NFL Regular Season, a lesson was taught by average Americans, the NFL Fans who burned their Season Tickets and NFL Jerseys, and stayed at home instead of going to the games.

If that episode of “Black-ish” had aired, loyal Disney Fans may have damaged that brand like the loyal NFL Fans damaged the league…by taking a big bite out of their revenue stream.

And, if that happened, Goofy may have been laid off…and he would have been forced to seek a new job which he was qualified for.

And, unfortunately, the Democratic Party already has a Chairman.

Biblical References, including Christ, Cut From Disney Movie, “A Wrinkle in Time”

March 11, 2018

untitled (191)

Jesus loves the little children…

All the little children of the world.

Red and yellow, black and white,

They are precious in His sight.

Jesus loves the little children of the world. reports that

The writer of Disney’s adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time” says she cut Bible references, including Jesus, from the film because, as she claims, “society has progressed.”

Screenwriter Jennifer Lee (“Frozen”) was tapped to transform the children’s book into a big budget film, but in the process eliminated the biblical references that devout Episcopalian L’Engle included in her original work. In an interview with Uproxx last month, Lee explained why she omitted all of the Christian elements that are a significant part of L’Engle’s book.

“What I looked at, one of the reasons Madeleine L’Engle’s [book] … had that strong Christian element to it wasn’t just because she was Christian, but because she was frustrated with things that needed to be said to her in the world and she wasn’t finding a way to say it and she wanted to stay true to her faith,” Lee said. “And I respect that and I understand those feelings of things you want to say in the world that need to be said that are out there. In a good way, I think there are a lot of elements of what she wrote that we have progressed as a society and we can move onto the other elements.”

The children’s science fantasy book is about a little girl named Meg who travels through space to find her missing father, a scientist. In what ultimately becomes a battle between good and evil, three celestial beings named Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which help Meg on her journey and guide her with scriptures like 1 Corinthians 1:27–29 and John 1:5.

In the book, Meg’s brother, Charles, realizes that Jesus is a fighter of evil, and even asks Meg’s friend Calvin to read him a bedtime story from the book of Genesis. However, these elements won’t be seen in the film adaptation of the book.

Instead, Lee said she focused on the battle between light and darkness, which she described as being “universal.”

“In a sad way, some of the other elements are more important right now and bigger — sort of this fight of light against darkness. It’s a universal thing and timeless and seems to be a battle that has to keep being had,” she said.

The screenwriter said the Disney version celebrates inclusiveness and diversity, and argued that including Bible verses and other Christian elements would stray from that. “I can’t put words in [Madeleine L’Engle’s] mouth — and I worked with one of our producers, Catherine Hand, who was very close to her — but that wasn’t her intention. Her intention was looking at the ordinary real hero in an extraordinary situation,” she said. “The power of love in this world, and we stayed very true to that. And her lens through it was Christianity and everyone has a different lens in.”

She added, “That’s what inclusiveness is to me in this film, is really looking at all of us have a role to play in this no matter where we come from or what we look like.”

We’ve “progressed” past Christianity?

Have you lost your ever-lovin’ mind?

Remember the movie trilogy of a few years ago based on C. S Lewis’ epic Fantasy Novel, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”?

Christian Allegory was everywhere to be found in those three movies, as it was in the book.

Aslan the noble lion represented Christ in His Death and Resurrection and His fight against evil in which he shall emerge triumphant upon His return.

“The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” Movie Trilogy presented the Gospel in a manner which could be easily understood by both adults and children.

“A Wrinkle in Time” could have, also, if Liberal Intolerance in the name of Political Correctness had not gotten in the way.

How did it come to this?

After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.

And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans, still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.

What is amazing to me, though, is how, American Christianity is constantly attacked on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, like Screenwriter Jennifer Lee, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, than those of us who actually read God’s Word.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22

When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.

There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.

At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14

This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to say and do in our society.

If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, and now, after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.

For a shining example, please refer to how well Christian Family Movies like the “God is Not Dead” Series and the one which Sean Hannity produced have done.

It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.

Which in itself, is ironic, considering the way they treat the faith of 75% of Americans.

Isn’t it “funny” how those who claim to be the “most tolerant” among us are actually the least tolerant of all?

Liberal Intolerance: RNC Chair Calls Out DNC Chair to Address Democrat Ties to Anti-Semite Farrakhan

March 10, 2018


  • “It is an act of mercy to white people that we end your world. … We must end your world and bring in a new world.”

  • “We [blacks] are at war and we never stop fighting for justice. You must have force. … don’t drop your gun and don’t forget to squeeze.”

  • “You [Jews] are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood.

  • You are not real Jews (who everyone knows were black) You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the US government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell… . But if you choose to crucify me (subtle reference to the Deicide charge), know that Allah will crucify you.”

  • “Listen, Jewish people don’t have no hands that are free of the blood of us [blacks]. They owned slave ships. They bought and sold us. They raped and robbed us.”

    Rev. Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam reports that

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called on her Democratic National Committee counterpart, Tom Perez, Friday to address the ties DNC vice chair Keith Ellison and other members of the party have to Louis Farrakhan.

Keith Ellison’s long pattern of lies about his ongoing relationship with Louis Farrakhan, who the Anti-Defamation League calls ‘America’s leading anti-Semite,’ has put a stain on the Democrat Party,” McDaniel said in a press release. “Anti-Semitism has no place in American politics, Tom Perez must address this issue.”As head of the Nation of Islam, Farrakhan has a long history of making deeply anti-Semitic comments.

His ties to current elected Democrats rapidly came to light after a previously unreleased photo of Farrakhan visiting with then-Senator Barack Obama at a 2005 Congressional Black Caucus meeting surfaced in January 2018.

While several of the officials linked to Farrakhan have disavowed their past relationships with him, Ellison in particular has maintained that Democrats should not be “bothered” being associated with him. 

Ellison has repeatedly declined to comment on the several meetings he has reportedly had with Farrakhan since disavowing him in 2006.

Gosh, why in the world would RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel accuse “Reverend” Farrakhan of being an “anti-semite”?

Well, gentle readers, probably because he is.


When Farrakhan spoke at NOI’s annual gathering in Detroit in February 2017, attendees greeted him with thunderous cries of “Allahu akbar” and listened raptly as Farrakhan railed against the Jews: “I want to disabuse the Jews today of the false claim that you are the chosen of God — that Israel or Palestine belongs to you. I want to disabuse you of that. I’m going to tell you about your future. You that think you have power to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world. I’m here to announce the end of your time.” Islam scholar Robert Spencer observed: “That Farrakhan would so often use the platform of his racist cult to attack the Jews suggests that he is interested in currying favor with mainstream Muslims who are well aware of how deeply embedded anti-Semitism is in the Qur’an.”

In his Saviours’ Day keynote speech in February 2018, Farrakhan said:“Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out, turning men into women and women into men.”

“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew, and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Quite a charming fellow, isn’t he?

So, why doesn’t the Democratic Party understand that this sort of Liberal Intolerance is why they continue to lose elections?

Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, Including Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into the political party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, Christian or Jew, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.

By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

During the 8 long years of the Obama Presidency,  children and young adults attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and that being a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

For the Democrats to intentionally hang out with the likes of the Head of the Nation of Islam, “Calypso Louie” Farrakhan, reveals their true colors as intolerant race-baiting anti-semitic hate mongers.

It is a good thing for the RNC Chair to call them out on it.

Even if it is over a decade too late.

Schools Encouraging Student Participation in National Walkout Day

March 9, 2018


Yesterday, I told you about the National Walkout Day being sponsored by the Women’s March Movement which has been scheduled for March 14, 2018.

After sharing my post, I started hearing from readers who told me that their children were being made to bring permission forms home by their schools’ administrators, so that they could participate in the Walkout. Others said that the school teachers and administrators were encouraging the children to be involved in the Walkout!

Here is one such comment…

“My daughter is in a student leadership class in my home town. Some of her classmates were approached by the school principle a couple of weeks ago and they inquired what the class would be doing to lead the school out of the class on March 14. They responded they had no idea what the principal was talking about…

The principal approached them again, in class, the following Monday (2/26), and TOLD them to plan a walk-out for 3/14, to walk out of class and to lead everyone to areas within the school to sit down and quietly PROTEST THE NATIONS GUN LAWS and memorialize the people killed during the Parkland, FL shooting.

I contacted the school superintendent. He denied my daughters version of events happened, and stated their real concern was for students safety… and that they wanted to ensure that what was going to happen, happened in as safe a manner as possible, that the students were GOING to protest, and that it wasn’t the schools idea but that it was the students right to protest and that the school couldn’t stop them. Funny, my daughter says they were aware of the idea of the walkout, but hadn’t bothered to work to organize anything until they were pushed to do so by their school.

Friends of mine in other states have shared with me stories of their own, and even emails they received from their school districts. “In response to the recent tragic events in Florida, some students may consider participating in an upcoming ‘Walk-Out’ to bring awareness to the issue of gun violence in schools… We are encouraging a ‘Sit-In’ approach,” said one email from Virginia…

Then there’s this, which my child’s superintendent emailed me with, “Several legal firms that deal with schools have sent out legal opinions about the walk out. It’s a First Amendment right and we can’t stop them.” This is total bullshit, of course. One of the core responsibilities of a school is to guard against truancy… and WHAT legal firms contacted them, exactly?

…That the organizers of the national movement wanted this to include elementary school students is sickening. These demons are turning our children into political props in an effort to turn them into a generation willing to sacrifice their basic right to self-defense and shrug off the notion that private firearm ownership is a civil right. God Damn them.”

Being curious about these shocking revelations, I went back to the Women’s March Website, where I was directed for more information about the Walkout to a website for a non-profit organization named Peace First.

According to their website,

Peace First is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young people around the world to become powerful peacemakers by:

Investing in their ideas
Providing them with tools and skills
Connecting them with other awesome young people around the world
Sharing their stories and impact with the world

Violence is pervasive in our culture and impacts our young people every day, from guns on the streets to bullies in schools, intolerance, and our inability to connect with, respect, and be kind to each other. These experiences have a devastating effect on young people’s healthy development, and contributes to a cycle that is at the root of so many other problems in our world.

Thankfully, over twenty years of experience working with young people has taught us that they can be powerful problem-solvers if they are called and prepared to do so. By teaching young people the skills of courage, compassion, and collaborative leadership, we can unleash their moral imagination. By investing in those ideas, we can help them address some of the most challenging issues in their communities.

Now is the time to unleash this untapped resource by teaching young people the skills they need to solve the problems that matter most to them, investing in the ideas that will help change our world for the better, and celebrating the stories of youth peacemaking happening around the world.

Looking at their website’s biographical page sent chills up this Christian American Conservative’s spine.

They are literally all Ivy League Graduates…Liberal Globalists dedicated to shaping and molding young skulls of mush into young Globalists brainwashed in “the right way” of thinking about the world.

On their page devoted to the March 14th Walkout, they frame the event as if the students were the organizers.

However, as I reported yesterday, they clearly are not.

As I wrote yesterday, the Father of Modern Communism, Vladimir Lenin, said

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

The people behind Peace First have been sowing their seeds for over 20 years.

Is the civil unrest and anti-American political ideology that we are having to deal with now, the result of seeds being planted by non-profit organizations like America First and the National Education Association, who really came into their own as a Liberal Political Force during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama?

Teach your children well…

…and, don’t sign any permission slips that they bring home without reading them first.

Who is Sponsoring the National School Walkout on March 14th?

March 8, 2018



The Women’s March Youth EMPOWER Toolkit is an initiative of Women’s March Youth through a coalition with Peace First, Rise To Run, Teen Vogue, The Justice League NYC, The Gathering For Justice, and Rock The Vote. Women’s March EMPOWER upholds the unity principles of the Women’s March platform. Our goal is to provide young people with the tools needed to create high school and college chapters that guide students in making a positive impact in their communities. We believe that the single most powerful act we can do is prepare young people with the skills and commitments to take actions around causes that matter to them with courage, compassion and collaboration.

You can visit Peace First’s website to get more support and the chance to apply for a grant of up to $250. – from the front page of www.women’s reports that

…For 17 minutes at 10 a.m. across each time zone on March 14, students, school faculty and supporters around the world will walk out of their schools to honor those killed in the massacre at the Parkland high school earlier this year and to protest gun violence.

Those participating are encouraged to wear orange – the color used by many who support gun control. And some schools will even have featured speakers attend the event.

…Women’s March Youth EMPOWER, the organizers of the March 14 demonstration, say the walkout is to “protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods.”

“Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school,” the event page said.

….The Women’s March has asked that “all actions be inclusive & non-violent” during the walkouts.

….More than 185,000 students are expected to participate in the walkout, according to the latest numbers provided by a Women’s March spokesperson. And a map of participating schools on the event’s website shows the walkout has gone international – with schools in Ireland, Israel and Mexico participating.

Multiple colleges and universities have already said they will not reject students who participate in the protests and walkouts, Reuters reported.  

Certainly, gentle readers, you remember the Women’s March which happened one year ago?

Do you remember who leads that organization and who funds it?

The Chief Organizer of the Women’s March Movement, including the “Women’s March on Washington” is Radical Muslim Activist, Linda Sarsour.

Sarsour, who is on the payroll of George Soros, was very busy during the last year, as explains…

In a January 2017 video explaining that the hijab worn by Muslim women is not by any means a symbol of anti-female oppression, Sarsour said: “When I wasn’t wearing hijab I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City.”  In an April 2017 interview, she identified herself as a woman “of color.” Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in the 1995 movie Dangerous Minds, said Sarsour, had inspired her to become a high-school teacher, a profession through which she herself could, in turn, “inspir[e] young people of color like me, to show them their potential.” Sarsour also told the interviewer that although Middle-Easterners are categorized as “white” by the U.S. Census Bureau, being identified as a person “of color” is “important in the political climate that we are in, because it allows for us to understand where we fit in the larger political landscape. We fit in with marginalized groups, who oftentimes are other people of color.”

Sarsour spoke at a CAIR-Georgia fundraising banquet in February 2017, and was the keynote speaker at the annual dinner of CAIR’s Philadelphia chapter on March 11, 2017.

While participating in a “Day Without A Woman” protest in front of Trump Tower in New York City on March 8, 2017, Sarsour was arrested for refusing to comply with a police request that she and her comrades disperse from the vicinity.

In July 2017, Sarsour was a featured speaker at the 54th Annual Convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). She began her speech by thanking her “favorite person in this room … Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, motivator, and encourager of mine.” She made no mention of Wahhaj’s numerous ties to Islamic terrorism. Also during her address, Sarsour lamented “the potential chaos” that the administration of President Donald Trump would likely inflict “on our community”; stated that “we [Muslims] are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad … but here in the United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House”; and said that “when I wake up in the morning, and I remember who is sitting in the White House, I am outraged.” “I hope,” Sarsour expanded, “that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad.” Counseling against Muslim assimilation into Western culture, Sarsour declared: “Our number one and top priority is to protect and defend our community. It is not to assimilate and to please any other people in authority. And our top priority … is to please Allah, and only Allah.”

Now, just how heavily is the Evil Puppet Master, George Soros, invested in the Women’s March Movement, the Founders and Organizers of this Nationwide School Walkout?

Last Year, Feminist Writer Asri Q. Normani of The New York Times reported concerning the funding for the “Women’s March on Washington” that

Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, a march “partner,” told me his organization was “nonpartisan” but has “many concerns about the incoming Trump administration that include what we see as a misogynist approach to women.” Nick Fish, national program director of the American Atheists, another march partner, told me, “This is not a ‘partisan’ event.” Dennis Wiley, pastor of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ, another march “partner,” returned my call and said, “This is not a partisan march.”

Really?, another partner, features videos with the hashtags #ImWithHer, #DemsInPhily and #ThanksObama. Following the money, I pored through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the “Women’s March”?

I found out: plenty.

By my draft research, which I’m opening up for crowd-sourcing on GoogleDocs, Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

Okay, gentle readers, listen to ol’ KJ.

Communist Leader Vladimir Lenin said,

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

Just like the Occupy Movement was financed by George Soros and Communist Party USA, these school walkouts are being organized and financed by Far Left Organizations who wish to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation,  taking away one piece of freedom at a time.

As I have written before, these are not any sort of “Grassroot Events”. There are carefully planned and organized by professional protestors who work for Far Left “non-profit” organizations and who receive money from George Soros through his myriad of organizations being funded through his Open Society Institute.

Please let your teenagers and young collegians know the truth and explain what it actually happening to them.

The first thing that anyone who ever wants to gain control of a Sovereign Nation does is to come after the guns.

These Modern American Liberals whom I have named “The New Bolsheviks” are no exception.

Do not lose your children to a political ideology which has failed wherever it has been tried.

The United States Vs. California

March 7, 2018

3167762_1280x720 reported last night that

The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies.

It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation’s most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens.

“The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.”

The state’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, fired back: “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”

Federal officials are seeking an injunction to immediately block enforcement of the three California laws, each enacted within the past year.

One of those laws offers additional worker protections against federal immigration enforcement actions. Senior Justice Department officials have said it’s prevented companies from voluntarily cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

Employers are mandated under the law to demand ICE agents present a warrant or subpoena before entering certain areas of the premises, or when accessing some employee records.

Some companies have complained they’ve felt torn between trying to comply with seemingly contradictory state and federal statutes, since penalties for non-compliance can be steep from both entities.

Another state law dubbed known by critics as the “sanctuary state” bill protects immigrants without legal residency by limiting state and municipal cooperation with the feds, including what information can be shared about illegal-immigrant inmates.

A third law gives state officials the power to monitor and inspect immigrant detention facilities either run directly by, or contracted through, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

In other words, in a Bizarro World type of affirmation of the autonomy of states, the State of California (the World’s Biggest Bowl of Granola, what ain’t fruits and nuts “is” flakes) and Gov. Moonbeam decided that those who have come here illegally have the same rights as those of us who were born here or who came to our Sovereign Nation in a legal manner.

Why are Governor Moonbeam and his Fellow California Liberals refusing to abide by our nation’s laws by passing bogus “laws” of their own and continuing to HARBOR FUGITIVES?

Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in their incessant push to grant blanket amnesty to Illegal Aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.

What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.

And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.

This is in no way the human rights issue that Liberals insist it to be.

Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.

The bogus laws put in place in California were not the result of a sort of “righteous indignation” or “defense of the downtrodden”.

They were put in place to secure the existence of future Democrat Voters.

Liberals talk a good game, however, as was shown this week with their willingness to allow the DACA Deadline to pass without even a whimper, they will defend the “rights” of illegal immigrants only up to a certain point. And, when that defense is no longer politically expedient, i.e., in their best interest, they will drop it like they were holding a flat screen television and got caught going out the front door with a security spider wrap on it at the neighbor Walmart.

I believe that it was the indefensible actions of the Mayor of Oakland which was the catalyst in Trump getting Sessions to do something.

She warned the illegals in her area that there was going to be an ICE Raid. Estimates are that ICE missed out apprehending 800 illegal aliens because of her interference. Those they missed included individuals who had committed violent crimes.

The DOJ is looking into the Mayor’s actions with the possibility of filing federal charges against her.

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children.  We are all immigrants in this land, except for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight.  But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.

I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish.  But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.

America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.

Too many brave Americans have died to keep our flag flying over our Sovereign Nation for that flag to be flown below any other country’s.

America First.

Mueller Investigates UAE Influence in Trump White House, Ignores UAE Millions Given to Clinton

March 6, 2018


Last weekend, The reported that…

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators is looking into whether an adviser to the de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has influenced White House policymaking.

The New York Times reported Saturday that Mueller’s team is looking into a Lebanese-American businessman and adviser to the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan, the crown prince of the UAE.

That businessman, George Nader, visited the White House frequently last year, according to the Times. That investigators are examining Nader’s role in the White House’s policymaking and asking about efforts by the Emiratis to influence the Trump administration suggests that Mueller’s probe has broadened beyond Russia’s election meddling.

According to the Times, investigators have been asking witnesses about possible attempts by the Emiratis to buy influence in the White House by supporting President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Really? The UAE bought somebody else’s ” influence” during the year before the 2016 Presidential Election…

On February 18, 2015, The Washington Post reported that

The Clinton Foundation has dropped its self-imposed ban on collecting funds from foreign governments and is winning contributions at an accelerating rate, raising ethical questions as Hillary Clinton ramps up her expected bid for the presidency.

Recent donors include the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany and a Canadian government agency promoting the Keystone XL pipeline. . . .
United Arab Emirates, a first-time donor, gave between $1 million and $5 million in 2014, and the German government—which also hadn’t previously given—contributed between $100,000 and $250,000.

Just how corrupt was the pipeline between the Clinton Foundation and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?


By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation. Again, according to…

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians in the Uranium One Deal or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation, as was previously reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, this was not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and to E-mailgate and the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton proved herself to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

As I have previously written, Clinton’s trail of corruption leads all the way back to when she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee for dishonesty.

However, to practice “Pay-For-Play” on a Global Scale, while holding the Office of Secretary of State of the United States of America, is downright treasonous.

For almost 1 and one-half years, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his SS Cadre of Democratic Donors have desperately attempted to prove that President Donald J. Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government, resulting in his victory of Hillary Clinton on November 8, 2018.

Mueller and his team have found exactly two things pertaining to the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election: Jack and Squat.

There was no Russian Collusion.

Now, Mueller has “expanded the scope of his investigation” in a frenzied attempt to prove something…anything with a hint of illegality on the 45th President of the United States of America.

It’s time for the President to blow his whistle and end this game.

It has cost Americans Taxpayers too much money with no ROI (Return on Investment).

Plus, as Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino tweeted, all the special investigation has accomplished is to provide a smokescreen in order to cover up the illicit activities of Hillary Clinton while she still had the governmental authority to commit them.

It is time to end the investigation into President Trump and to begin a full investigation into ALL of Hillary Clinton’s illegal and treasonous activities carried out during the time period in which she was Secretary of State, continuing up to and including her failed Presidential Campaign.

The American people have had enough of Mueller’s smokescreen.

It is time to clear the air of the stench that is still wafting through Americans’ nostrils from the Machiavellian plans and schemes of Hillary Clinton.

The 2018 Academy Awards: Disconnected Liberals Honor Themselves

March 5, 2018

untitled (228)

The Academy Awards were the brainchild of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), formed in 1927. The AMPAS was created through collaborative effort of 36 most prominent individuals, who worked within the motion picture industry.

Film actor Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. was chosen as the first president of the Academy. The awards were established to honor the talented artists of the Motion Picture Industry. The first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It was a very private affair, with only two hundred seventy people as guests. The awards were given in the banquet, set up at the hotel’s Blossom Room. The tickets for the guest tickets cost $5.

The first Oscar Ceremony consisted of the handing out of awards in 12 categories and two special honors.

The awards were meant to honor people responsible for cinematic achievements in 1927 and 1928. There was a very little element of surprise at the first Oscar Awards ceremony, as the names of the winners had been declared three months in advance. The entire affair was a lengthy one, filled with speeches. However, Douglas Fairbanks, the Academy President, moved things along as best he could, handing out the golden statues to the winners like a modern-day McDonalds Employee at the Drive-Thru Window.

Yes, boys and girls, once upon a time the Academy Awards celebrated individual achievement in the field of Professional Cinema.

That was then. This is now.

FoxNews,com reports that

The 90th annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday with returning host Jimmy Kimmel taking the stage encouraging positivity, before quickly taking jabs at President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and even Fox News viewers.

Despite calling for a show filled with positivity, both the host and stars like Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong’o made the movie-centric show political.

Kimmel began with an old-timey announcement in which he listed the stars in attendance, making his first political jab with “Black Panther” actress Lupita Nyong’o.

“The stunning Lupita Nyong’o, she was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya,” Kimmel said at the top of the show. “Let the tweetstorm from the president’s toilet begin!”

From there, the host launched into a positive monologue that poked fun at the whirlwind year in Hollywood, which saw the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements dominate the headlines and previous award shows. In commenting on the year’s diversity, he highlighted “Get Out” helmer Jordan Peele.

“Jordan is only the first person in 90 years to be nominated for directing, writing and best picture for his debut film,” he said. “What a debut it was. None other than President Trump called ‘Get Out’ the best first three-quarters of a movie this year.”

The final political jab came when discussing the gay romance film “Call Me By Your Name.” The host noted that the film, despite being an Oscar-nominated feature, did not score big at the box office.

“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” he quipped. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”

He lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: “Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News.”

He also said the Oscar, “Keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and most importantly no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”

Yes, folks, those “jokes” were actually meant to be funny.

I wonder what the swashbuckling man’s man, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., would have thought about this bunch of no-talent crybabies who have politicized the award show that he worked so had to get off the ground?

He probably would have punched Kimmel right in the mouth.

Once again, the Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened almost a year and a half ago.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

Over the last few several decades, Hollywood has vied for the title of “Sin City” with “Lost Wages (Las Vegas) through its glorification of the decadent and demonic. The family-friendly, morally based classic horror films such as “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, and “The Wolf Man”, have long since been replaced by Jason, Freddy, “Jigsaw”, and “Insidious”.

Meanwhile, love stories like “The Notebook” have been pushed aside for celebrations of pedophilia, like “Call Me By My Name”.

What is interesting to note, though, in the middle of the continuing Liberal Takeover and ongoing Political Meltdown in Hollyweird is the backlash by average Americans to the attempted shaping of our American Culture and Society. Please note the overwhelming popularity of Super Hero Movies, in which Good triumphs over Evil.

Just like the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Yes…I said it.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and comport themselves like those Hollywood Legends before them, who served their country during World War II, doing whatever they could to help America defeat fascism.

And, perhaps, they would have had the intestinal fortitude to have shown Harvey Weinstein the door a long time ago.

Last night was nothing but an exercise in self-adulation by a bunch of self- absorbed, over-medicated, under-talented, bodyguard-using, gated community-living America-hating Liberals who want to tell us “commoners” that we should not listen to that still small voice in each of us and embrace decadence and turn in our Bibles and guns, while at the same time foreswearing any traditional American Ethics and Values which we still hold dear, in order to properly worship them and the Altar of Political Correctness which they have helped to create.

To which I and the overwhelming majority of average Americans living between the coasts reply in unison…

Why Country Music Isn’t “Country Music” Anymore

March 4, 2018


Sometimes…change is good.

Sometimes…it isn’t.’s Entertainment Division reported earlier this week that

On Wednesday, the former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate was announced as a new board member of the charitable arm of the group that runs the annual CMA Awards and CMA Festival.

But prominent music industry leaders swiftly criticized Huckabee’s appointment, including some who singled out his support for gun rights and traditional family values.

In his resignation letter to the CMA Foundation, Huckabee called his critics bullies, but said he was resigning to end an “unnecessary distraction” for the foundation.

“If the industry doesn’t want people of faith or who hold conservative and traditional political views to buy tickets and music, they should be forthcoming and say it,” Huckabee wrote. “Surely neither the artists or the business people of the industry want that.”

Huckabee also sounded a note of defiance on Twitter on Thursday night.

The 51st Annual CMA Awards, held in November, included numerous jabs at President Donald Trump.

The Former Governor of the great state of Arkansas is exactly right.

The East Cost/Left Coast Power Brokers have done to Country Music exactly what they did to Classical Liberalism.

They have jettisoned Traditional American Faith and Values for a shallow hedonistic conflagration of drinkin’, cheatin’, partyin’, and Liberal Politics, changing an entire music genre into something that it never was and was never meant to be.

On this Mississippi March Morning, just a few miles away from Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, I sit here reflecting on the influence which actual Country Music had on my young life, growing up with my Mother and Daddy.

Every family, to this day, has rituals that they observe like clockwork.

Our Saturday Night Ritual was to eat homemade hamburgers, spaghetti, or crockpot beans off of TV trays and watch Hee Haw, the syndicated country music variety show, out of Nashville, which starred Buck Owens, Roy Clark, and a “cast of thousands”.

The snotty folks up in the Northeast Corridor and Hollyweird never could figure out what made that “hick show”, that lasted 25 years, so popular.

After all, it was about traditional American Values, love of God and Country, respecting our American Musical Heritage, and featured talented performers who wrote songs, sang, played their own instruments, loved and appreciated their fans, and actually behaved like average Americans.

Plus, they had the good grace and common sense to keep their private lives, private.

At this time in our country’s history, when morality has become relative and ethics situational, we find our hearts crying out to hear something that will soothe our troubled souls.

Instead, we find synthesized, mass-produced Pop Music and “so-called” Country Music, actually more Pop Music, manufactured in New York City (pronounced like they do in the Pace Salsa Commercials), advocating meaningless one-night stands and encouraging the debasement of the human soul, instead of its ability to rise above any obstacle in its path that might hinder individual achievement.

With all of today’s over-produced, under-written Pop and Country-Pop Music flooding the airwaves of both broadcast and satellite radio, Americans my age wonder where all the great Country Songwriters and Performers have gone to?

What is happening to country music reflects a lot about the culture we live in. Artists who actually lived what they sung about like Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, The Statlers, Jim Ed Brown, Porter Waggoner, Hank Williams, Jr., Randy Travis, Jeannie C. Riley, and Elvis Presley have been replaced by fashion models and wannabe rock stars.

Please don’t get me wrong.

There are still Americans performing country music. Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Reba, Martina McBride, Clint Black, Brooks and Dunn (who are back together and appearing with Reba in Las Vegas), Rascal Flatts, among others, are still attempting to keep the spirit of Country Music alive.

However, in our culture of fast lives, fast food, and instant gratification, superficiality sells. That’s how we got stuck for 8 long years with Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

It is easier and more profitable for a record company to sell someone who looks good and can sing a little, or to release a country music album made by a fading rock star, than it is for them to market someone who is unbelievably talented and writes their own songs, but who resembles your next door neighbor.

Remember the Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison Country Music CD fiascos?

No? I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t admit it, either.

Can you imagine Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, or Buck Owens trying to get a record deal today?

I’m sorry Mr. Williams. Your vocalization is way too twangy and you drink way too much. “I Saw The Light”? What kind of song is that? A song about redemption? Get real. “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”? Who Cares? You’re just not marketable.

Ms. Cline, we can’t use you. You look like somebody’s next door neighbor.

Mr. Owens, what is the “Bakersfield sound” that you’re talking about? That won’t get any airtime in New York City. “Act Naturally”? That’s a song? Next thing you know, you’ll tell me that the Beatles will want to record it.

Now you know why Toby Keith formed his own record label.

The big recording companies like RCA Nashville and Arista are run like any other business. Executives are transferred from other cities and other divisions within the company and are judged to be successful by the amount of revenue they generate. The decision was made several years ago to turn country music into pop music. Country Music started the transition from Kitty Wells to Taylor Swift and from George Jones to Kid Rock in an effort to claim a bigger share of the CD-buying public. The disconnect arises when you take a genre that has traditionally sung about God, America, family, and heartache and try to make it about fashionistas, MTV, and shallow people with situational morality and ethics.

Just like the Liberal Politics of the outspoken harpies, the Dixie Chicks, it just doesn’t work here in America’s Heartland.

…As was proven on November 8, 2016.

As we say in Dixie,

That dog don’t hunt.

Alan Jackson and George Strait were prophets.

Nobody saw him running from sixteenth avenue
They never found the fingerprint or the weapon that was used
But someone killed country music, cut out its heart and soul
They got away with murder down on music row

The almighty dollar and the lust for worldwide fame
Slowly killed tradition and for that someone should hang
They all say not guilty, but the evidence will show
That murder was committed down on music row

For the steel guitars no longer cry and fiddles barely play
But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars are mixed up in your face
Old Hank wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder, down on music row

They thought no one would miss it, once it was dead and gone
They said no one would buy them old drinking and cheating songs
Well I’ll still buy ’em
Well there ain’t no justice in it and the hard facts are cold
Murder’s been committed, down on music row

Oh, the steel guitars no longer cry and you can’t hear fiddles play
With drums and rock ‘n roll guitars mixed right up in your face
Why, the hag, he wouldn’t have a chance on today’s radio
Since they committed murder down on music row
Why, they even tell the posse to pack up and go back home
There’s been an awful murder down on music row

“Murder on Music Row”. George Strait/Alan Jackson, 2000

Please excuse my grammar,

But, what the East and Left Coast Liberals have done to “Country Music” today, ain’t just murder.
