Michelle Obama Tweets About Trump Vs. “The Squad”…”It’s Our America”

“Do they wonder why they (the Obamas) lost? If they were so adored — if their policies, if their agenda was so appreciated, if the American people were so enamored of it and they wanted more and more of it — then why did not Hillary win? Because Obama was campaigning for her.” – Rush Limbaugh, February 2018

FoxNews.com reports that

Former First Lady Michelle Obama has seemingly taken a shot at President Trump amid his ongoing feud with four progressive congresswomen, saying “there’s a place” for natural-born citizens and refugees alike.

Tensions escalated this week when the president blasted the Democratic “squad,” Reps Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., suggesting on Twitter that they “go back” to the countries they came. All four women are U.S. citizens, with Omar being the only one who was born outside of the U.S.

After exchanging several barbs during the week, Trump continued his attacks during Wednesday’s rally, during which a “send her back” chant aimed at Omar broke out from his supporters.

On Friday, the former first lady tweeted what seemed to be a rebuke of the remarks — while stopping short of mentioning the president directly.

“What truly makes our country great is its diversity,” Mrs. Obama tweeted. “I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.”

Her husband, former President Barack Obama, has not commented in on the feud.

While the Obamas have largely avoided weighing in on political matters since leaving the White House, Friday’s comments are not the first time the former first lady has seemingly tweaked Trump.

“The leader of the free world with a tweet can start a war, can crush an economy, can change the future of our children,” she told Gayle King of CBS News at the Essence Festival in New Orleans earlier this month.

She added the next president needs to have “deep seriousness and focus” and operate “with a clear base of facts and ideas.” She also said she thinks her husband sometimes made the presidency look easy.

“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job.”

“…made it look easy”?

Are you kidding me?

Three years into his presidency, Trump is still cleaning up Obama’s mess.

I am not at all surprised that “Mooch” has gotten involved.

Yesterday, the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, issued the following warning…

By the way, don’t be surprised if she gets in the Democrat presidential primary race after the primaries. Don’t be surprised. I think the Obamas are looking at this as, “The primaries? That’s beneath us. We’re not gonna enter the primaries.” They’ll let these people fight it out, spend all their money, and then when it looks like none of them has a chance of beating Trump, here comes Michelle (My Belle) Obama at the latter moments of the campaign to jump into the fray and save the day for the Democrat Party.

After all, her and “The Squad” are “fellow travelers”.

Like “The Squad” and her husband, Former President Barack Hussein Obama, Michelle Obama has always played The Race Card at every opportunity.

On January 23rd, 2008, during a speech given in Columbia, South Carolina, Michelle Obama said:

We don’t like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y’all living in different dorms. I was there. Y’all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you’re in this diverse community because sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

Then, in February of 2008, while campaigning for her husband in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said:

Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

And let me tell you something. I need to believe that we live in that kind of nation, where hope and possibility and unity is still what drives us.

She made the “proud” comment twice in 2 different speeches. David Axlerod, Obama’s Chief Strategist, tried to explain it away at the time, saying:

She gives this talk all the time, and I don’t think she formulates the words quite that way generally. But if you look at the whole quote and read beyond it, she was plainly talking about this burst of participation, this sense of hope, the sense of possibility and so on. And she was talking about the politics of our country.

In an article titled “The Other Obama”, published on March 10, 2008, in The New Yorker Magazine, writer Lauren Collins gives us the following insights into the Future First Lady’s true feelings about America:

The four times I heard her give the speech—in a ballroom at the University of South Carolina, from the pulpit of Pee Dee Union, at an art gallery in Charleston, and in the auditorium of St. Norbert College, in De Pere, Wisconsin—its content was admirably consistent, with few of the politician’s customary tweaks and nods to the demographic predilections, or prejudices, of a particular audience.

Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

From these bleak generalities, Obama moves into specific complaints. Used to be, she will say, that you could count on a decent education in the neighborhood. But now there are all these charter schools and magnet schools that you have to “finagle” to get into. (Obama herself attended a magnet school, but never mind.) Health care is out of reach (“Let me tell you, don’t get sick in America”), pensions are disappearing, college is too expensive, and even if you can figure out a way to go to college you won’t be able to recoup the cost of the degree in many of the professions for which you needed it in the first place. “You’re looking at a young couple that’s just a few years out of debt,” Obama said. “See, because, we went to those good schools, and we didn’t have trust funds. I’m still waiting for Barack’s trust fund. Especially after I heard that Dick Cheney was s’posed to be a relative or something. Give us something here!”

Her expensive tastes, during her time as “First Lady”, which included Wagyu Beef and Lobster, her penchant for taking the most expensive vacations ever imagined by man (with larger entourages than an NBA Player), along with her attempts at telling Americans what we HAVE to feed our children and grandchildren, and how we should be raising them, did not exactly endear herself to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Especially when she started telling us how to feed our children and grandchildren…

Past First Ladies always took a cause to tackle during their husbands’ terms.

Usually, it was a non-intrusive cause such as literacy or combating hunger in America.

Not, in the case of our globe-trotting (on our dime) Former First Lady, “Moochelle” Obama. Under the guise of battling Childhood Obesity, she decided to sic the food police on America’s school menus, turning our children into the Liberal Administrations’ own personal lab rats and overruling the parental authority of the average American Family.

Mrs. Obama eventually had to adjust her diet plan, because children were not receiving enough nourishment from her Diet Plan and literally falling out by the middle of the afternoon.

In response to this danger to the health of their students, several school systems across the nation told the First Lady what she could do with her non-nutritious Diet Plan, including the Liberal Bastion of New York State!

Most of the other First Ladies in my 60 years, such as our current one, Melania Trump, have brought a certain degree of class and decorum to their unelected position as “FLOTUS”.

Hillary Clinton being a notable exception.

Where that woman spits, grass never grows again.

But, I digress…

First Lady Melania Trump speaks six different languages fluently and came here on a special Visa which they call the “Einstein” Visa. Plus, she always presents herself as an asset to our nation in public.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama thinks decorum is something you do to a room.

God forbid that she decides to run for president.

America is still in the process of recovering from the last Obama to hold that office.

Until He Comes,

The Confederacy, Kate Smith, and Betsy Ross: Censoring History to Create “Useful Idiots”

July 7, 2019

untitled (191)

…The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag. Do not look at me that way. It makes perfect sense. If you take a look at the timeline of progressive events, their speed and rapidity with which the left is conducting this assault on all of these American traditions and institutions, if you don’t think the American flag’s in their crosshairs down the road, you had better stop and reconsider.The American flag is what? It’s the symbol of America. The left what? Doesn’t like this country very much and never has and it’s getting angrier and angrier about it seemingly every day. The American flag stands for the United States of America and, as such, everything that’s wrong with it. And you wait. It isn’t gonna be long before the American flag is gonna cause chills, fear, scary thoughts, it’s gonna make me nervous, the American flag, when I see the American flag, it’s a symbol of hate.

You wait, folks. You wait. And then what are the Republicans gonna do? We’ll be the first among them to say yep, we need a redesign. Yep, we need to get into the twenty first. Just saying. I’m just saying. Hang in there, be tough.

…Can you just hear it now? I can hear it now. “The United States flag has flown over slavery and symbolized racism, discrimination, bigotry, homophobia for hundreds of years; the Confederate flag flew only four years, and we’re getting rid of the Confederate flag.” – Rush Limbaugh, 6/23/15

Back around 2013 or so, Liberal Democrats started pushing to removing everything concerning the Confederate Stats of America from both the history books and the landscape of our country.

When a psychopath murdered several black Americans in a church service in Charleston, South Carolina, that horrible tragedy gave the Democrats the excuse to start removing the “Stars and Bars” from public view and changing the names of streets in American towns and cities which may or may not have been named after a historic figure who was a member of the Confederacy.

The Confederate Purge has been carried out by Liberal Democrats in the name of “Political Correctness” since then.

However, that was not enough censorship nor cultural cleansing for them.

It recently became time to start attacking symbols of American Patriotism and Heritage.

Kathryn Elizabeth Smith was born May 1, 1907 and passed away on June 17, 1986. Known professionally as Kate Smith and “The First Lady of Radio”, she was an American singer, a contralto, well-known for her rendition of Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”, which became the most popular song on American Radio on three separate occasions. She had a radio, television, and recording career spanning five decades, which reached its pinnacle in the 1940s. Smith became known as The Songbird of the South after her enduring popularity during World War II due to her efforts in helping America to win the war. She raised $600 million to help the war effort. That’s $11 billion in today’s dollars.

Because she dared to sing two satirical songs about racism, those who make a living by dividing Americans deemed her to not be worthy to be seen or heard any more.

Because, after all, love of country is offensive…or something.

By now, you have all heard of Nike cancelling the launch of a pair of sneakers with the original American Flag featuring 13 stars representing the colonies on it, because Former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick proclaimed it to be RAAACIIIST.

Last Tuesday, the Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, hit the nail on the proverbial head concerning the matter and, more importantly to the subject of today’s post, what is really going on.

Is there any doubt that what we’re dealing with here — flat-out, now — is straight-up anti-Americanism? When I have mentioned casually and pointedly over the recent past that the American left has now become a political group that does not believe America could be fixed. America needs to be disbanded. America needs to be ripped up, torn apart, and rebuilt. We are forever flawed because of our founding.

Even though all of the grievances that they have about the founding have been addressed, have been fixed, such as women being able to vote, slavery and any number of things. That’s not good enough — and this Nike situation with Colin Kaepernick proves it! Colin Kaepernick is objecting to today’s flag, not the flag that flew before slavery. He’s objecting to today’s flag, and here’s Nike (because one of their paid athletes objects to the flag) pulling the shoe made with the American flag on it! I mean, there isn’t any question here that what we’re dealing with is not people who are aligned with us on things in common.

It used to be said of the two political parties that we all want what’s best for America. That can’t be said anymore. And it has not been the case for a long time, if you ask me. These people are not interested in what’s best for America. They want to tear it down, folks. They’re not even hiding it anymore. They’re not trying to even camouflage it. They aren’t trying to mask it. They aren’t trying to deceive us. They’re flat-out in our faces. They don’t like this country, and it’s not about fixing it. It’s about tearing it down. It’s about ripping apart the fabric of this country and destroying the people who are the descendants of those who founded it.

I don’t mean in a genetic sense. But people who believe in the founding, they’ve gotta go. Make no mistake about it. Colin Kaepernick and his behavior and Nike going along with him, in my estimation, is flat-out un-American. It’s anti-America, let’s put it that way. We don’t have any overlap here where it used to be said (impression), “Yeah, well, we’re all… We all want the best for America. We just have different, uh, theories about how to get there.” They’re not looking at the best! They want to rip this country apart. They want to tear up the concepts of the American founding.

The Washington media-political complex, if you will, authors the daily script. It’s one-sided. How does Nike let one person sway them into ditching an entirely already-made shoe, featuring — by the way — a flag designed by Betsy Ross. Now, did not Kaepernick tell us when he began kneeling — as a barely-could-get-on-the-field bench rider for the San Francisco 49ers. Did he not tell us that he was kneeling to protest police brutally? Did he not tell us this? He did! That’s all it was. He was protesting the fact that the cops were shooting people like him.

That the cops are shooting black people and women and minorities first. It was all about the cops. Except it wasn’t! It was about the flag all along! He was taking a knee because he opposes the country! He opposes the national anthem. He opposes honoring the flag. This proves it! They always lie. They always lie to us. They hide so much of their real core. Even when they are in the process of displaying it, they still deceive.

Since before the 2016 President Election, I have referred to those who want to be known as “The Resistance”, like Colin Kaepernick, as “The New Bolsheviks” because of the striking similarity of their actions to the ruthless aggression displayed by those who followed Vladimir Lenin in the Russian Revolution of 1918.

However, there is another group that these “brave new radicals” remind me of: the barbarians of Islamic State, or ISIS.

When they would take over a city in the Middle East, for example Palmyra, one of the first things that they would do would be to tear down the area’s historical sites, destroying any artifacts and antiquities which they did not like, in order to establish that their culture was supreme, just as Lenin’s Bolsheviks did.

“The Resistance” or protestors, if you will, who are bringing down the historical statues which I just mentioned, who have banished Kate Smith as Rameses did Moses, and are now turning their sights on American Patriotism itself, also proclaim their self-righteousness through their actions.

As an American, I see nothing different from their actions than those of the Bolsheviks and the Radical Islamists of ISIS.

The subjects of all of this censorship were Americans. In the case of the Confederate Generals, most of them were West Point Graduates who proudly served their country before the War Between the States.

The Civil War was a seminal moment in American History.

If you find the statues offensive, then that is your prerogative as an American. However, your hurt feelings do not give you just cause to attempt to erase history by pulling down a statue which is not your property.

And, how does Kate Smith singing two songs meant to ridicule racism, which Black Communist Activist Paul Robeson (“Ol’ Man River) himself sang make her memory worthy of the treatment which she and her signature song “God Bless America” have received?

And, for gosh sakes, if the country was not founded, none of us would be here and the world would be a darker and more dangerous place.

History cannot be hidden, nor can it be changed through violent acts in the present. It just is.

Those statues were put in place so that Americans might learn about those historical figures and learn FROM them, as well.

Kate Smith was a patriot who was simply a product of her times.

And, the wisdom and brilliance of our Founding Fathers are the reason that idiots like Kaepernick and the rest of the New Bolsheviks can do and stay the stupid ungrateful things that they do.

Which brings me to a very important point: Lenin’s Bolsheviks and ISIS also destroyed historical artifacts in order to make the populace “malleable” and “agreeable”.

Without their history there to remind them through statues, buildings and antiquities, the populace would lose their sense of “country”, not to mention knowledge of how their nation had evolved and changed into what they had become comfortable with.

These New Bolsheviks who are censoring history do not understand that in order to be properly educated as an American Citizen, you need to be aware of our Sovereign Nation’s History and reminded of it constantly, the good and the bad, so that our nation does not lose our cherished liberty which was bought by the blood of those before us.

So why, all of a sudden are these statues and, for gosh sakes, Kate Smith and Betsy Ross’ American Flag, which have been a part of our nation’s history for so long, so offensive?

Perhaps because they stand in the way of those who would replace our Constitutional Republic with a Marxist form of government…like “Democratic Socialism”.

After all, those with a proper knowledge of history and a strong sense of American Patriotism would not make very good “useful idiots”.

Independence Day 2019: America’s Strength Lies in Her “Average Joes”

July 4, 2019

 

d-debate-winner-la-600On July 4th, 1986, the greatest president in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, delivered these words to a television audience. They are as inspirational today as the day that they were given.

My remarks tonight will be brief, but it’s worth remembering that all the celebration of this day is rooted in history. It’s recorded that shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia celebrations took place throughout the land, and many of the former Colonists — they were just starting to call themselves Americans — set off cannons and marched in fife and drum parades.

What a contrast with the sober scene that had taken place a short time earlier in Independence Hall. Fifty-six men came forward to sign the parchment. It was noted at the time that they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honors. And that was more than rhetoric; each of those men knew the penalty for high treason to the Crown. “We must all hang together,” Benjamin Franklin said, “or, assuredly, we will all hang separately.” And John Hancock, it is said, wrote his signature in large script so King George could see it without his spectacles. They were brave. They stayed brave through all the bloodshed of the coming years. Their courage created a nation built on a universal claim to human dignity, on the proposition that every man, woman, and child had a right to a future of freedom.

For just a moment, let us listen to the words again: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” Last night when we rededicated Miss Liberty and relit her torch, we reflected on all the millions who came here in search of the dream of freedom inaugurated in Independence Hall. We reflected, too, on their courage in coming great distances and settling in a foreign land and then passing on to their children and their children’s children the hope symbolized in this statue here just behind us: the hope that is America. It is a hope that someday every people and every nation of the world will know the blessings of liberty.

If you listen to the Mantra of Modern American Liberals, you would think that America’s best days are behind her and that we are the worst Nation on the face of the Earth. Personally, I do not believe their assessment of gloom and doom. Rather, I stand with this man who embodied the American Spirit that is beginning to awaken across this blessed land.

Per military.com:

Gen. Anthony Clement McAuliffe is best remembered for uttering a single word — no mean feat, considering that even the shortest Bible verse has two. Commanding the U.S. Army’s beleaguered and surrounded 101st Airborne Division during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge, McAuliffe received a German surrender ultimatum. “Nuts!” he replied, and became a lasting symbol of American courage and determination under fire.

A 1918 West Point graduate, McAuliffe held various field artillery positions before World War II. On the eve of D-Day, McAuliffe jumped with the first wave as a commander of division artillery, although he had never received formal parachute training.

In December 1944, during the siege of Bastogne, Belgium, McAuliffe was acting commander of the 101st in Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor’s absence. The Americans had been holding the Belgian town “at all costs,” and on Dec. 22, Gen. McAuliffe received the encouraging news that the 4th Armored Division was beginning its drive north to relieve the 101st. Later that morning, members of the division’s glider regiment saw four Germans coming up the road carrying a white flag. Everyone hoped they were offering surrender. Instead, they presented two pages demanding the Americans’ surrender: “To the USA Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne. . .There is only one possibility. . .the honorable surrender of the encircled town.”

McAuliffe glanced at the message and said, “Aw, nuts!” When he told his commanders he didn’t know what answer to send, Lt. Col. Harry Kinnard said ‘That first crack you made would be hard to beat, General.” Everyone laughed as a sergeant typed up the succinct response: “To the German Commander: Nuts! The American Commander.”

Between this stoic reply, Patton’s troops from the south, and a change in the weather that allowed air reinforcement the following day, the 101st was able to hold Bastogne. Their victory resulted in the first full-Division Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation.

McAuliffe’s actions at Bastogne helped assure the final defeat of the Germans. Gen. McAuliffe continued to serve on active duty, including assignments as Head of the Army Chemical Corps, Commander, 7th Army, and Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Army, Europe, until his 1956 retirement. He died in Washington, D.C. in 1975 and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

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 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, and the rest 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, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

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.

For the past 2 decades at least, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America is “just another country” and to be a patriot is 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.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” whom, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And that, boys and girls, is why, on this 4th of July, almost 3 years after average Americans watched with a sense of prideful accomplishment as Donald J. Trump took the Oath of Office, Modern American Liberals are still showing the world their posteriors while continuing to throw the longest mass temper tantrum in recorded history.

Their ego-driven political ideology did not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation, as shown during the recent Democratic Debates, in which they championed causes and opinions which none but a small minority on the Far Left of the Political Spectrum embrace.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily-populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

So, to summarize, by labeling Patriotism as “Jingoism” and by ridiculing those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values, the Democratic Party cost themselves the Presidency…going from the “In Crowd” to the Outhouse.

If I was a Modern American Liberal with any sort of self-awareness, I would be throwing a temper tantrum, too…over my own ungrateful arrogant ignorance that caused the defeat of my Presidential Candidate.

Unfortunately, the Far Left “Democratic Socialists” who have taken over the once mainstream Democratic Party are not self-aware.

And, it is this lack of self-awareness that is allowing average Americans to witness the implosion and political extinction of the Democratic Party right before our very eyes.

In the opinion of this 60-year-old, sitting in the Northwest corner of the Magnolia State in America’s Heartland, Modern American Liberals, and their ideological leaders, who trod the Halls of Power with impunity, underestimated the American Spirit, just as King George and the British Aristocracy did, so many years ago.

As our enemies, both foreign and domestic, have discovered since the birth of our nation, Americans will fight for our freedom.

We showed this fact to the world on November 8th, 2016.

And now, almost 3 years later thanks to the unflinching leadership of an American President, and despite the actions of those who despise our American Way of Life, our Sovereign Nation is rising like a phoenix from its ashes and we are making American great again!

May God Bless you and your family on this 4th of July, the Year of Our Lord, 2019, and may God Bless America.

10-Hour Senate Vote to Restrict Trump’s Ability to Respond to Iranian Aggression Fails, House to Vote on Similar Bill…Why?

June 29, 2019

BHDN_PO-92FR_SENATE-FAILS-TO-PASS-IRAN-AMENDMENT-AFTER-10_-HR_CNNA-ST1-100000000540003a_174_0.mp4.00_00_27_20.Still001-960x640.png
PROLOGUE

The military deployed nearly a dozen Air Force fighter jets to the Persian Gulf state of Qatar this week amid escalating tensions with Iran and threats against American forces in the region.

The F-22 Raptors arrived Thursday to al-Udeid air base, the hub for U.S. air operations in the Middle East. In a statement, U.S. Central Command said the planes were being deployed to Qatar for the first time to “defend American forces and interests.”

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate on Friday, after a record-breaking 10-hour vote, failed to approve a resolution that would require President Trump to get congressional approval before ordering a military intervention in Iran.

The vote, which was not expected to pass, came after political unease over the White House’s tough talk against Iran.

The vote was the longest in the chamber’s history. The Senate closed its vote on the measure at 3:10 p.m. ET, which was 10 hours and 8 minutes after starting the vote. The old record for the length of a Senate vote was set on Dec. 21, 2018 at five hours and 20 minutes.

The plan needed 60 votes. But the final tally was 50-40. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who participated in Thursday night’s Democratic presidential debate, voted at 3:10 p.m. in favor of the Iran amendment. Moments later, the vote was closed, and the Senate was quickly gaveled out of session.

The effort will continue on the other side of Congress: The House is expected to take up the issue next month.

Lawmakers have argued Trump cannot continue relying on the nearly two-decade-old war authorizations Congress approved in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Democratic Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico, an author of the measure, says he’s not alone in raising concern about Trump’s “ping-pong diplomacy” and “go it alone posture.”

“This reckless diplomacy is dangerously reminiscent of the run up to the war with Iraq,” he said on the Senate floor Thursday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it nothing more than another example of “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” which he explained as whatever the president’s for “they seem to be against.”

McConnell said putting restrictions on the White House would “hamstring” the president’s ability to respond militarily at a time of escalating tension between the U.S. and Iran.

Meanwhile…per FoxNews.com

The State Department has ordered all non-emergency personnel at the U.S. Embassy and consulate in Iraq to leave the country amid rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

The announcement was made in a security alert on its website early Wednesday morning. The alert also said that normal visa services would be temporarily suspended.

This comes amid a standoff between the U.S. and Iran, which has recently threatened to pull out of the nuclear deal and resume higher uranium enrichment if no new deal is put in place.

“Reckless diplomacy?”

Hardly.

Are you old enough to remember the Iranian Hostage Crisis? If not, here is a summary, courtesy of u-s-history.com:

On November 4, 1979, an angry mob of some 300 to 500 “students” who called themselves “Imam’s Disciples,” laid siege to the American Embassy in Teheran, Iran, to capture and hold hostage 66 U.S. citizens and diplomats. Although women and African-Americans were released a short time later, 51 hostages remained imprisoned for 444 days with another individual released because of illness midway through the ordeal.

…Upon the death of the shah in July [1980] (which neutralized one demand) and the Iraqi invasion of Iran in September (necessitating weapons acquisition), Iran became more amenable to reopening negotiations for the hostages’ release.

In the late stages of the presidential race with Ronald Reagan, Carter, given those new parameters, might have been able to bargain with the Iranians, which might have clinched the election for him. The 11th-hour heroics were dubbed an “October Surprise”* by the Reagan camp — something they did not want to see happen.

Allegations surfaced that William Casey, director of the Reagan campaign, and some CIA operatives, secretly met with Iranian officials in Europe to arrange for the hostages’ release, but not until after the election. If true, some observers aver, dealing with a hostile foreign government to achieve a domestic administration’s defeat would have been grounds for charges of treason.

Reagan won the election, partly because of the failure of the Carter administration to bring the hostages home. Within minutes of Reagan’s inauguration, the hostages were released.

It’s not that the Democrats have forgotten that Iran hates us.

It is the fact that they do not care.

Back in September of 2018, the Washington Free Beacon reported that

Former Secretary of State John Kerry disclosed that he has been conducting rogue diplomacy with top Iranian officials to salvage the landmark nuclear deal and push the Islamic Republic to negotiate its contested missile program, according to recent remarks.

Kerry, in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt to promote his new book, said that he has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif—the former secretary’s onetime negotiating partner—three or four times in recent months behind the Trump administration’s back.

“I think I’ve seen him three or four times,” Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration’s authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country’s fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.

Kerry’s comments are in line with previous reporting on his behind-the-scenes attempts to save the nuclear deal and ensure that Iran continues receiving billions in cash windfalls.

The thing is, gentle readers, you can bet that John F. Kerry did not think of “reaching out” to the Iranians on his own.

What has been conveniently forgotten, thanks to the Far Left Democrats’ 24/7 TDS-inspired attacks on President Trump, is the fact that Barack Hussein Obama, the Former Petulant President Pantywaist himself, has set up his Command Headquarters for his “Shadow Government” just a few blocks away from the White House and has even moved his “right-hand Iranian” Valerie Jarrett, into the house with him and “Mooch”.

The move by the Democrats to restrict Trump from responding appropriately to Iranian aggressive actions against America is coordinated, as Fox News reports in the above articles.

Just as Kerry continues to get his marching orders from Former President Obama, I would not be surprised if Petulant President Pantywaist has not been making phone calls to Democrat Senators and Representatives requesting that they do whatever they have to in order to preserve Obama’s legacy of “Peace in Our Time”.

Oh, wait…that was British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s motto when acquiescing to Germany’s National Socialist Party, otherwise known as the Nazis.

What a coincidence.

Frightening, isn’t it?

There is a reason why there were no American flags on the stage for the Democratic Candidates’ 2-night debate.

I’ll bet you can figure out what it is.

Memorial Day 2019: Liberty is Freedom With Responsibility

May 27, 2019

memorial-day-true-meaning-ftr (2)

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. – Pete Hegseth

Today is a day of solemn remembrance, during which we honor our fallen heroes.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, “Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping” by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication “To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead” (Source: Duke University’s Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 – 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis’ birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

Last night, as I sat down to write today’s post, I tried to think about something pithy to write. Then, I realized that today is not a day for witticisms and sarcasm.

I thought about all of the American lives, all of the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives out of love and devotion for our Sovereign Nation and their fellow Americans, both their comrades and their families back home.

The unselfish devotion shown by these brave Americans is made fun of and remains the source of derision by many devotees of the anti-American political philosophy who consider themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”.

These same “enlightened” individuals consider “patriotism” to be a bad word.

They have replaced it words like “nationalism” and “jingoism”.

The devotees of this political philosophy do not believe in American Exceptionalism.

They believe that America is “just another country”, certainly not worthy of sacrificing their lives for.

These people just don’t get it.

Freedom is not free.

That is why brave men and women of the past and the present age have fought and died while wearing the uniforms of our Armed Forces.

When they went into battle, they did not just represent their hometowns…they represented all of us.

From the germ of an idea to the greatest country on the face of God’s green Earth, this country has stood strong because of resolute men and women who were willing to “pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to protect “The Shining City Upon a Hill”.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13-17 

May God bless and comfort the families of our Fallen Heroes and may their memories and our American Freedom endure.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar Plays the Race Card to Defend Her Blaming America for the Failure of Socialism in Venezuela

May 4, 2019

omar-pass-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., fired back at Vice President Pence on Friday after he took issue with her remarks on the escalating tensions in Venezuela.

“Women of color have heard this before. Instead of ‘We disagree,’ it’s ‘She doesn’t know what she’s talking about,’” Omar tweeted. “They have to make us feel small. This from an Administration that thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax.”

Earlier in the day, Pence accused Omar of not knowing “what she’s talking about” after she appeared to lay some responsibility for the ongoing situation in Venezuela on the Trump administration over its “bullying” tactics and sanctions.

Pence, for his part, assigned blame for the unrest to embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

“Nicolas Maduro is a socialist dictator who has taken what was one of the most prosperous nations in this hemisphere and brought it literally to a level of deprivation and oppression and poverty that we have never seen,” Pence said. “Nine out of 10 people in Venezuela live in poverty. Three million people have fled Venezuela. That’s not a result of U.S. policies. That’s the result of dictatorship and socialism that has been imposed on people of Venezuela by Nicolas Maduro.”

Earlier in the week, Omar made comments on PBS’ “Democracy Now!,” saying that “a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today.”

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States,” she added.

Pence separately took issue with those remarks on Thursday, accusing her on Twitter of picking “socialism over freedom.” He went on to extend the administration’s support to “the freedom-loving people of Venezuela.”

Vice-President Pence is exactly right.

Everywhere that it has been tried, Marxism has failed and Venezuela is no exception.

Back during my college days in the late 1970s, I had a class with a young man from Venezuela.

He would speak to me regularly about how his nation was thriving economically and becoming a major player on the world stage.

He would brag about how beautiful the cities were and speak of the national pride which he felt for his country.

Look at Venezuela now.

After years of suffering under Marxist Regimes, the citizens of Venezuela are forced to eat garbage just to stay alive.

And, this is what Rep. Ilhan Omar is trying to blame on OUR Sovereign Nation…the very country which she has sworn an oath to?

Fox News’ Jesse Watters has had enough…

“I would issue a challenge to her. Omar, please say one good thing about America,” Watters said on “The Five” on Thursday.

“We hear her so much saying what’s wrong with America. Just say what you’re proud of. I think that would counterbalance some of the negativity that you hear coming out of her mouth.”

Jesse, I wouldn’t hold your breath while you’re waiting for her to comply with your request.

After all, the woman is an anti-American, anti-Semite Muslim from Somalia who married her own brother to keep him from being deported.

In fact, she is so filled with animus toward tbe country which she is supposed to be representing, that she has forgotten the lesson which a “man of color” tqaught us long ago:

It’s not about the color of your skin. It’s about the content of your character.

And Rep. Omar, yours is sorely lacking.

Until He Comes,

Ilhan Omar -“Some People Did Something”…You’re Darned Skippy They Did and Americans Will Never Forget It

April 14, 2019

omar-pass-600-li

Per CBSNews.com

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the president “shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack.” 

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence,” she said in a statement released Saturday while in Germany visiting American troops.

“It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe,” she added. 

In some ways, it does not seem like it has been almost 18 years since the worst Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on American soil.

In other ways, it seems like an eternity.

That horrible day was so surreal. It seemed to me like I was stuck in a nightmare.

Certainly this couldn’t be happening to us? We’re the greatest nation in the world. Who in their right mind, would dare attack the United States of America? Who would be brazen enough to attack us, using instruments of our own design? Who would actually dare flying planes into the Twin Towers, a living symbol of American Prosperity?

For that matter,. who would fly a plane into the Pentagon? The Seat of Power behind our nation’s awesome Military, the finest collection of Fighting Men and Women on Earth?

It was not a nightmare. It was a reality.

I remember seeing that first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

I remember the look of incredulity and panic on the faces of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and E.D. Hill, as they watched from the set of Fox and Friends that fateful morning.

I remember the second plane on its approach, and the horrifying realization that this was no accident… that America was under attack. An attack, which turned out to have been planned and executed by Osama bin Laden, and a group of Saudi Arabians, members of the Muslim Terrorist Group, known as al-Qaeda.

I remember the images of Americans jumping out of windows to their certain death, rather than be consumed by the fires, raging around them.

I remember the sickening thud as they hit the pavement.

I remember the images of the brave NYC Policemen and Firemen as they rushed into the World Trade Center…never to return.

I remember watching the First Tower collapse…then, the second one.

I remember a heroic Mayor Rudy Giuliani, out in the middle of the devastation, doing whatever he could to get New Yorkers to safety.

I remember President George W. Bush coming on television, with a look of steely determination, as he announced that we would be avenged.

I remember him standing on that heap of rubble that used to be a part of the World Trade Center, side by side with that fireman, telling the assembled crowd, through his bullhorn, that “the world will hear from us”.

And, it did.

Here is the tragedy of 9/11/01, broken down by the numbers. Courtesy of nymag.com:

  • Estimated number of New Yorkers suffering from post-traumatic-stress disorder as a result of 9/11: 422,000

And, here we are, almost 18 years removed from that nightmarish day, with a President of the United States, who since taking office, has put those responsible for the scourge of Radical Islamic Terrorism on notice, in stark contrast to his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, who gave Iran the means to obliterate our nation in a flash of light and the dust of a mushroom cloud and, who was so disrespected by that very same nation that they not only taunted our warships and airplanes in the Persian Gulf with impunity, they boarded our vessels, kidnapping our sailors and holding them for ransom.

Under our current Commander-in-Chief that would have never happened. President Trump does not bow down to Radical Islamists as witnessed by yesterday’s closing of the Palestinian office in Washington, DC for their failure can negotiate a peace treaty with Israel.

During the days after 9/11/2001, political affiliation, race, gender, personal philosophy, did not matter.

WE WERE AMERICANS.

This country came together, in a way in which I had never before seen in my lifetime (which, is a pretty long time).

Now, look at us.

We have Radical Muslims (and Marxists) occupying seats in the House of Representatives and displaying their ignorance and disdain for our country.

Americans must continue to stand firm and to once again come together and let our “public servants” in the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C know that we stand against those who would embrace our enemies instead of serving our Sovereign Nation, as they were elected to do.

Those who left us on that September Morning so long ago, and to say a prayer for them and the Four Americans whom we lost on the grounds of a US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, all those years later, deserve no less.

On September 11, 2001, Radical Islamists attacked us on our own soil and murdered over 3,000 Americans, and if given the opportunity, they will not hesitate to do it again.

We must not allow the Far Left ideologues of the modern Democratic Party any more opportunities to bring about “radical change” in America through the appeasement of our enemies which, under Obama, included pay-offs, acquiescence, and giving them the means of our nation’s destruction.

America was NEVER meant to be “just another country”.

We must stand united as a nation and continue to reclaim our heritage as “The Shining City Upon a Hill”.

Rep. Ilhan Omar must be censored and, if she does not apologize, she needs to lose her seat in Congress.

The lives lost on September 11, 2001…and September 11, 2012…demand it.

Until He Comes,

Trump – Dems “Defrauding the Public With Ridiculous Bullsh–“

March 29, 2019

US-POLITICS-TRUMP

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

In his first major rally since Special Counsel Robert Mueller cleared him of any collusion with Russia, President Trump took the stage before a boisterous full house at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Thursday night — and proceeded to tear into Democrats and the FBI as unintelligent “frauds” who tried desperately to undermine the results of the 2016 election.

“The Democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with ridiculous bullsh–,” Trump said to thunderous applause, “– partisan investigations, or whether they will apologize to the American people.”

Trump continued to unload on his opponents: “I have a better education than them, I’m smarter than them, I went to the best schools; they didn’t. Much more beautiful house, much more beautiful apartment. Much more beautiful everything. And I’m president and they’re not.”

Addressing counterprotesters outside the arena and progressives in general, Trump asked: “What do you think of their signs, ‘Resist?’ What the hell? Let’s get something done.”

Later, Trump vowed to “close the damn border” unless Mexico halts two new caravans he said have been approaching the United States rapidly. Trump also hit at fraudulent asylum applicants, saying liberal lawyers often have coached them in a “big fat con job” to claim they’ve feared for their lives when they make it to the border.

The economy, Trump said to sustained cheers, “is roaring, the ISIS caliphate is defeated 100 percent, and after three years of lies and smears and slander, the Russia hoax is finally dead. The collusion delusion is over. … The single greatest political hoax in the history of our country. And guess what? We won.”

“I love campaigning against the Green New Deal,” Trump remarked at one point. “One car per family — you’re going to love that in Michigan.”

Trump predicted that the former DOJ and FBI officials who pushed the collusion theory and authorized secret surveillance warrants against members of his campaign — whom he incidentally called “major losers” — would soon have “big problems.”

Trump also characterized the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee as “little pencil-neck Adam Schiff, who has the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen,” and someone who is “not a long-ball hitter.”

Schiff, D-Calif., who fiercely pushed collusion claims, has vowed to continue investigating Trump despite Mueller’s findings — even as Republicans have called for his resignation.

Trump’s rally prompted thousands of supporters to line the streets hours beforehand in a festive atmosphere that included vendors selling “Make America Great Again” hats and holding supportive signs.

Speaking of “ridiculous bullsh–“, here is some from a program which aired yesterday on the rapidly tanking MSNBC

I hear these things about ‘let’s make America great again’ and I think to myself, exactly ‘when did you think America was great’? — Former Attorney General Eric Holder on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber”

If there was ever a statement which clarifies the difference between the nightmare that was the Obama Administration and the promising future that embodies the embracing of American Exceptionalism that is the cornerstone of the Trump Presidency, the above statement by Former AG Eric Holder is it.

I am not afraid to unequivocally state that the 8 long years of the Obama Administration represented the very opposite of what the American Dream and our Traditional Faith and Values system are all about.

While Obama and his cronies preached to us that we should be grateful for the “benevolence” of an all-powerful nanny state government, President Trump believes that the strength of American lies in average working class Americans who love God, the families, and their country.

Obama, Holder, and the rest of the “America Last” crowd still do not believe in American Exceptionalism.

They are trapped in a state of perpetual victimhood by their own hatred of a nation which has given them everything necessary to succeed.

The difference between the swirling voyage down the porcelain receptacle that our country was experiencing during the Obama Administration and the promising resurgence that we are experiencing now is the difference between “CAN” and “WILL”.

Obama’s slogan was

Yes, we CAN.

Trump’s promise is

We WILL make American great again.

The political victory of “outsider” Donald J. Trump over the favored professional politician Hillary Clinton completely blew the Democrats’ minds.

It turbocharged their rapid movement as a political party to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum.

Now, every American is watching as these nimrods embrace the failed political philosophy of Karl Marx in calling for American to become a “Democratic Socialist” country.

In their grief the Democrats have had a split with reality causing them to feel fee to say in public things that they used to only say to their peers in private.

Thus, Holder’s statement that the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth was never great.

America has had many moments of greatness, too numerous for me to list here.

Men and women have given their very lives to make this Sovereign Nation the envy of the world.

My father jumped out of a perfectly good boat along with thousands of other brave Americans in an exhibition of unselfish bravery known forever as “D-Day”.

He was one of the lucky ones. He came home.

Former Attorney General Holder, if you truly believe what you said yesterday on MSNBC, then I suggest that you move a country where those in power feel the same way you do.

May I suggest Iran?

Until He Comes,

Trump at El Paso Rally: “I Didn’t Save Our Country…YOU Saved Our Country!”

February 12, 2019

56387045-5498-4066-8fd0-6bf8a50c5caf-GTY_1129036476

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump held a campaign-style rally Monday night in El Paso, Texas — just as possible 2020 contender and former U.S. Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke led a border wall protest roughly a half-mile away.

Trump’s event, held at the El Paso County Coliseum for his first “Make America Great Again Rally” of the year, didn’t identify the dueling rally nearby, in the town that sits along the U.S.-Mexico border, but the president did mention O’Rourke.

The “young man” with a “great name,” “challenged us,” the president said in reference to O’Rourke.

“We have, let’s say, 35,000 people tonight, and [O’Rourke] has 200 people, 300 people — not too good,” Trump told the crowd. It was not immediately clear how many people were at Trump and O’Rourke’s events.

President Trump slams Democratic leaders as border wall negotiations break down
Trump added, “In fact, what I would do is, I would say that may be the end of his presidential bid, but he did challenge it.”

The president announced his rally last week during his second State of the Union address, in which he alleged El Paso is now one of the nation’s safest cities because of a “powerful barrier” that was put in place — a claim that others disputed.

He reiterated that point on Monday night. Speaking to the crowd, in front of a large red banner that read, “finish the wall,” Trump said El Paso is one of the “safest cities” in America “thanks for a powerful border wall.”

He claimed that El Paso, compared to Juarez, Mexico, just across the southern border, had far less murders than the nearby Mexican city, adding: “Walls work.”

Moments before the president took the stage Monday, lawmakers reached “an agreement in principle” to fund the government and avoid another partial government shutdown. The deal includes around $1.3 billion for a barrier along the southern border.

Trump mentioned on stage that he didn’t know details, as news of the deal broke just before his rally, but acknowledged that “progress [was] being made” for border security.

The White House last month agreed to a temporary spending bill to end a 35-day partial shutdown, although Trump said at the time that the move was not a “concession” and that he would not relent on his demands for a wall.

The talks had cratered over the weekend because of Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, but lawmakers apparently broke through that impasse Monday evening.

Speaking of Beto, according to his people, there were 7,000 in attendance.

They were exaggerating.

Beto-Mexican-flag

Also, what the Main Stream Media will probably not be reporting this morning is that there were several Mexican Flags being flown at the rally.

Of course, that would be detrimental to the “next Obama’s” image.

I thought that, as a politician, you actually had to have a winning record before running for president.

But, I digress…

Last night, American Citizens living in the Lone Star State of Texas heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.

You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As yesterday’s RasmussenReports.com Presidential Approval Poll number of 52% showed, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made Texans, along with the rest of us average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation by repeating his vow from last Tuesday’s State of the Union Address:

AMERICA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY…NEVER!

And, gentle readers, to see and hear an American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens is indeed a “radical change”.

KJ’s “State of the Union”…An Unfolding of a Biblical Prophecy

February 3, 2019

Washington-Praying

1But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. – 2 Timothy 3: 1-4 (ESV)

Sound familiar?

This is a spot on assessment of America’s popular culture, especially on the Left Coast and up in the Northeastern “Beltway” running through New York City and Washington, DC.

I am not sitting here in my man-cave, looking up at my poster of all the Biblical names for Jesus Christ, telling you that He is coming back soon. However, we are closer to hearing the “trumpet sound” than previous generations.

The Day of the Lord will indeed come like a thief in the night.

But, I digress.

I was in Walmart a while back, when I saw a group of middle schoolers roaming the store as if it was their personal playground. They were touching everything and generally causing mayhem, when an employee asked them to stop.

They responded by smarting off to that employee as if they were a peer.

That moment made me wonder about their parents.

Time went by and I found myself in that same Walmart. A group of around a dozen or so teenage girls came in the store with a well-dressed woman whom I presumed was one of their mothers.

I watched them as the woman gave lists to the girls for what was apparently a scavenger hunt being held in that Walmart as an activity for one of the girls’ birthday party.

Included in the activities was going up to the employees as if they were animals in a zoo and getting their pictures taken with them, or asking them stupid questions, as if these Americans, working hard at Walmart, were somehow inferior and objects for ridicule.

This behavior really struck a nerve with me as my late step-sister (15 years older), my sister (9 years older), and myself (“”Baby Brother” or just “Brother” as my Daddy called me all of his life) would never have been allowed to treat anyone that way.

You see, we were taught to respect everyone and to treat everyone the same way, whether they were a janitor or an executive.

And, we were raised to love God and attended church on a regular basis.

I feel sorry for those young people and their parents, also.

What I witnessed at that Walmart was a microcosm of what is going on right now in this Sovereign Nation which God has given to us.

From the attacks on the Covington Christian High School kids to the signing of the NY Abortion Law to the blazing hypocrisy and downright treasonous words and deeds of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Ralph Northam, and the rest of the “Democratic Socialists” of the Far Left Democratic Party, we are watching the prophetic warning found in 2 Timothy 3: 1-4 being played out right before us.

However, there is always hope and joy in the morning.

Americans, by the Grace of God, as Press Secretary Sarah Sanders reminded us, elected a strong leader in Donald J. Trump, who loves God, America, and her people.

However, even though approximately 75% of Americans profess themselves to be Christians, there still needs to be “revival in the land”.

Average Christian Americans must come together and remain as united as we were on the night of November 8, 2016 in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

We MUST continue to fight the good fight.

Don’t believe what you see and hear from the Fake News Outlets.

Believe that “still small voice” inside you.

It belongs to the Solid Rock upon which our Sovereign Nation was formed…

And the same Solid Rock upon which it will endure.

Until He Comes,
