Middle School Bans Songs Mentioning “Jesus” From Christmas Concert

October 14, 2018

“The Christmas Story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all — the gift of God’s love for all of humanity. Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history. Each and every year at Christmas time we recognize that the real spirit of Christmas is not what we have, it’s about who we are, each one of us is a child of God. That is a true source of joy this time of year. That is what makes every Christmas merry.” – President Donald J. Trump

ChristianPost.com reports that

A middle school in Virginia has banned songs mentioning “Jesus” from its annual Christmas concert as part of an effort to be “more sensitive” toward the increasingly “diverse population” of its student body. 

“We had a few students who weren’t comfortable singing a piece I have done many times in the past, but it is of a sacred nature and does mention Jesus,” the choir teacher at Robious Middle School in Chesterfield said in an email to a parent who was concerned about the changes to the winter concert program, NBC News affiliate WWBT has reported. 

Parent David Allen said the public school’s efforts to encourage diversity while at the same time being exclusionary doesn’t seem rational. 

“It just seems like … everywhere you look everyone’s afraid of stepping on someone’s toes or everything is being so sensitive,” Allen told NBC News affiliate WWBT. “They were unable to [sing this song] because the word Jesus was in there and apparently someone assumed it was of a sacred nature.”

News of the censorship of Jesus songs at Robious Middle School has garnered attention at multiple conservative websites.

Public schools in the United States have often seen their share of controversy over the extent to which they can reference Christmas in general and the Gospel story of Jesus’ birth in particular.

For example, in December 2016, a judge in Texas ordered a school district to restore “A Charlie Brown Christmas” display after it had been taken down by administrators because it featured a Bible verse.

Bell County State District Judge Jack Jones had issued a temporary injunction against the Killeen Independent School District from enforcing its decision to prohibit the Christmas decoration.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, whose office backed the display, released a statement at the time expressing support for the injunction.

“I am glad to see that the court broke through the Left’s rhetorical fog and recognized that a commitment to diversity means protecting everyone’s individual religious expression,” Paxton said at the time.

As America has witnessed during the almost two years of Donald J. Trump’s tenure as the 45th President of the United States of America, now, more than ever before in the history of America, there is a great divide between our two major Political Parties.

Well. I know y’all will be shocked, but, this Christian American Conservative has a different take on the schism between America’s two main Political Parties than the Secular Liberals in the Main Stream Media do.

And, it all comes down to keepin’ The Main Thing, The Main Thing.

How Americans think of Christmas is a prime example.

Marist poll, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, says only 37 percent of Americans prefer “Happy Holidays,” compared to 57 percent who say they prefer “Merry Christmas.”

Further, 79% of Americans strongly or very strongly identify the birth of Jesus with the meaning of Christmas, added the survey of 1,005 adults residing in the continental United States.

John Quincy Adams was the sixth President of the United States of America. He said the following about our Country’s relationship to Christianity:

My hopes of a future life are all founded upon the Gospel of Christ and I cannot cavil or quibble away [evade or object to]. . . . the whole tenor of His conduct by which He sometimes positively asserted and at others countenances [permits] His disciples in asserting that He was God.6

The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made “bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God” [Isaiah 52:10].7

In the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior. The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.

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. – The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

From adherents.com

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.

Christmas and Christianity have been a part of our national fabric since our Sovereign Nation was born. Here is what a couple of our more Modern Presidents said about Christmas in America:

Since returning home, I have been reading again in our family Bible some of the passages which foretold this night. . . . We miss the spirit of Christmas if we consider the Incarnation as an indistinct and doubtful, far-off event unrelated to our present problems. We miss the purport of Christ’s birth if we do not accept it as a living link which joins us together in spirit as children of the ever-living and true God. In love alone – the love of God and the love of man – will be found the solution of all the ills which afflict the world today. – President Harry S. Truman, Christmas Eve Address to the Nation, 1949

“Christmas is also a time to remember the treasures of our own history. We remember one Christmas in particular, 1776, our first year as a nation. The Revolutionary War had been going badly. But George Washington’s faith, courage, and leadership would turn the tide of history our way. On Christmas night he led a band of ragged soldiers across the Delaware River through driving snow to a victory that saved the cause of independence. It’s said that their route of march was stained by bloody footprints, but their spirit never faltered and their will could not be crushed. The image of George Washington kneeling in prayer in the snow is one of the most famous in American history. He personified a people who knew it was not enough to depend on their own courage and goodness; they must also seek help from God, their Father and Preserver.” (1983)

“For the past few years in this great house, I’ve thought of our first real Christmas as a nation. It was the dark and freezing Christmas of 1776, when General Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware. They and Providence gave our nation its first Christmas gift—a victory that brought us closer to liberty, the condition in which God meant man to flourish.” (1984) President Ronald Wilson Reagan

So, why do we celebrate Christmas? Is it the hustle and bustle? Is it the greed and avarice of the commercialization of a Secular Holiday?

It is to honor and celebrate

ONE SOLITARY LIFE

He was born in an obscure village, the son of a peasant woman.

He grew up in another village, where he worked in a carpenter’s shop until he was thirty. Then for three years he became a wandering preacher.

He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He didn’t go to college. He never visited a big city. He never travelled two hundred miles from the place where he was born. He did none of those things one usually associates with greatness.

He had no credentials but himself.

He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. He was turned over to his enemies and went through a mockery of a trial. He was executed by the state. While he was dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing, the only property he had on earth. When he was dead he was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Twenty centuries have come and gone, and today he is the central figure of the human race and the leader of mankind’s progress. All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man on this earth as much as that One Solitary Life.

***The preceding essay was part of a sermon by Dr James Allan Francis in “The Real Jesus and Other Sermons” © 1926 by the Judson Press of Philadelphia (pp 123-124 titled “Arise Sir Knight!”).

The Father of our Country, our First President, George Washington, once delivered the following mighty words to a fledgling nation:

You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are.

While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.

The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger. The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.

I now make it my earnest prayer that God would… most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of the mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion.

Generations of American school children were not harmed in any physical or psychological way by singing about the birth of Jesus Christ during their school Christmas Programs.

Those who made the decision to leave Him out of their school’s Christmas Program have made a foolish mistake brought about because of the scourge known as “political correctness”

The fact is, following the advice of President Washington, we need Him in our schools now more than ever.

ABC Execs Afraid “Roseanne-less” Reboot Will Bomb…Well, Duh

October 13, 2018

untitled (247)

Well, in general, firing the title character of any hit show (centered solely around that character) is hardly the apex of business acumen. This should be blatantly obvious to the most casual practitioner of programming. – James Woods on Twitter

Breitbart.com reports that

Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online.

Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret. 
 
“We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,” one insider reportedly said. “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.” 
 
Barr compared Jarrett to if the ‘Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby,” comments that were condemned by Dungey as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.” Yet one insider apparently suggested that ABC should instead have temporarily suspended her before making a final decision.

“They could’ve suspended her from the first few episodes without pay and had her return later on in the season,” the source explained. “I mean the season finale saw Roseanne going to the hospital for knee surgery. While they worked out her fate, her character could have faced serious complications and fought for her life, while simultaneously making Roseanne fight for her career with a national apology tour. “

“The morning the racist tweet scandal blew up, Roseanne offered to publicly apologize and do the rounds of every show but Ben and Channing weren’t having any of that and wanted her gone,” they continued. “Why not have her front a PSA for the network on racism and cyberbullying?”

Since Barr’s firing, the network has produced The Conners, a spinoff of Roseanne that premieres next week. However, another senior insider revealed to Mail Online that internal fears are that the new show will flop because of people’s loyalty to Barr and her character.

“When we greenlit The Conners we thought that the public would tune in to see the family return but what we’ve discovered is that people want Roseanne – they don’t want the family by themselves,” they explained.

“The marketing and publicity teams are horrified as no matter what promotional material is released – and let’s be honest it’s been limited for a show that launches next Tuesday – Roseanne’s fans come out in force stating that they won’t watch the show.”

“The comments on social media tend to skew in favor of Roseanne and slam The Conners and the cast members who came back,” they added. “Even dedicated fans of the Conner family feel conflicted about supporting a show that so swiftly eliminated the show’s matriarch and creator.”

Last month, Barr revealed that the network plans to kill her character off with an opioid overdose, after her character ended the last season revealing an addiction to painkillers.

That same source added that some figures within the company believe the show will attract less than a quarter of the viewership of Roseanne, a scenario that would leave Dungey with “many questions to answer.”

“In the end, the ratings are all that matter – and there are many people at Disney and ABC who are worried that firing Roseanne will see their Tuesday night ratings drop substantially,” they continued. “And should The Conners flop, Channing and her team will have many questions to answer. The whisper across ABC is that they will not even be a quarter of what Roseanne achieved last season.”

In July, Barr accused ABC of firing her because of her support for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, a position she said was “not allowed in Hollywood.”

As several Conservative Pundits correctly observed when she was fired, ABC was chomping at the bit for an excuse to cancel Roseanne Barr’s hit comedy.

A series returning to television after a 20 year hiatus about a working class family living in a town in the Heartland of America, whose outspoken matriarch was an adamant Trump Supporter, kicked major behind in the ratings.

Who’d da thunk it?

Certainly not the Liberal Expert Television Programmers and Critics in Hollywood and New York.

You know them. They are the same geniuses who came up with the idea for the Rosie O’Donnell variety show, “Rosie Live”…that mercifully lasted for only one episode.

The ABC Execs who fired Roseanne possessed the same mindset as the Democratic Party strategy makers who believed that attacking Judge Brett Kavanaugh and sending paid protestors to Washington to harass Republican Senators would endear their party to American Voters, resulting in a “Blue Wave” in November..

Modern Liberals do not understand average Americans at all.

For all her faults, missteps, and loudmouth obnoxious behavior, average Americans had come to embrace the revival of her television show after 20 years because they felt that it painted a realistic picture of a family attempting to cope and navigate their way through the tough issues of today.

It also helped that Roseanne and her producer were both Trump Supporters.

Even Roseanne admits that what she tweeted was harsh and she apologized for it.

However, as Americans have continually witnessed, the behavior of Liberal Television celebrities and Talking Heads towards the 45th President of the United States of America and average Americans who voted for him and who support him to the day has been so over the top that it makes Roseanne’s tweet about Valerie Jarrett pale in comparison.

And that, gentle readers, is the main reason why a Roseanne-less Reboot will fail.

The majority of Americans will not want any part of it because of ABC’s perceived Liberal Agenda to oust Roseanne and the Liberal hypocrisy toward their own insults and vulgarities toward the President, his family, and his supporters, which the American Public has witnessed en masse nightly on their TV screens since before the 2016 Presidential Election.

For ABC to be so insulated that they believed that a politically correct version of “Roseanne” featuring her television daughter would be a success, it, as Uncle Jed Clampett used to say, “Pit-i-ful”.

However, Self-Absorbed Liberals that they are, when “The Conners” bombs, they will publicly place the blame on the “limited intellect” and “closed-mindedness” of Trump Supporters.

It’s just what they do.

For reference, please watch videos of ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN reporting the events of the evening of November 8, 2016.

Why We Should Pray for Judge Kavanaugh and America

September 30, 2018

flag-and-cross

As I was trying to get ideas for what to write about on this Sunday morning, I started thinking about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and what he must be going through.

I knew that his faith plays a huge role in his life, as exhibited by the fact that one of his daughters, as he testified to on Thursday, told her sister at evening prayer time that “We should pray for the woman (Dr. Christine Blasey Ford)”.

So, I did some research last night and found these “Five Faith Facts about Brett Kavanaugh”, courtesy of redletterchristians.org

  1. Kavanaugh is Catholic. The judge is a regular lector at his church, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C., near his Maryland home. He also volunteers for the St. Maria’s Meals program at Catholic Charities, according to his biography on the court website and has tutored at the Washington Jesuit Academy.

  2. He has ruled on issues important to religious conservatives, including abortion rights. Nominated by President George W. Bush, whom he served as a White House lawyer, Kavanaugh has spent 12 years as a judge on the D.C. Circuit and has a long history of judicial decisions behind him. Among them: Kavanaugh dissented last year on a controversial decision that allowed an undocumented teenager who had crossed from Mexico into Texas as an unaccompanied minor to get an abortion while living in a government-funded shelter. The decision, he wrote, was “ultimately based on a constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.”

  3. He also opposed the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate. In 2015, he wrote a dissent opposing an accommodation to the birth control mandate. A panel had upheld the accommodation requiring religious organizations to sign a form facilitating contraceptive coverage for their employees. He wrote those regulations “substantially burden the religious organizations’ exercise of religion because the regulations require the organizations to take an action contrary to their sincere religious beliefs (submitting the form) or else pay significant monetary penalties.”

  4. Some conservatives are worried he’s not conservative enough. His ruling on that abortion case involving the unaccompanied minor was less restrictive than other judges, giving some cause to worry that he is too pragmatic. Similarly, these voters favor his dissent opposing the birth control mandate, but worry it conceded that the government has an interest in providing coverage for contraceptives, but that “the government can achieve it in other ways,” according to SCOTUSblog. Meantime, LGBTQ groups have expressed concern about his promotion by the conservative Family Research Council in 2005 when he initially was nominated for the D.C. circuit. Family Research Council is a Christian lobbying group that believes “homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed.

  5. He preserves the current religious ratio on the court. He replaces his fellow Catholic, Kennedy, for whom he clerked. That means, if his nomination is approved, the religious makeup of the court would remain the same. That currently includes five Catholic justices, three Jewish justices and Trump’s previous pick, Neil Gorsuch, who was raised Catholic but now attends an Episcopal church.

Have you ever heard the old expression “One lies and the other swears to it.”?

Whoever came up with it must have had today’s Democratic Party and Main Stream Media in mind.

In the case of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, as exhibited by the article above, he has hardly lead the life of a serial adulterer abuser, or moral reprobate.

Does a man who remained a virgin until his marriage sound like an individual who would have the morals of an alley cat?

The Judge has been well-known to be a man of impeccable character and Traditional American Values and Ethics for a long time.

So far that has been no evidence produced that he has ever been anything but what he claims to have been all of his life, despite the emotional testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and 6, soon to be 7, FBI Investigations into his character.

On the other hand, the Modern American Liberals and the political party which they control, the Democrats, appear to be imploding like vampires exposed to sunlight with new accusations of sexual harassment by the Judge coming forth every day and unfounded accusations as to how dangerous this good man is.

Just as the vainglorious Pharisees in Christ’s time, these new Pharisees have their noses so far up into the air that they fail to recognize their own sin while accusing others of sinful behavior.

And, now that Americans are reminding them of their political party’s own “discretions”, like Senator Richard Blumenthal’s lying about serving in Vietnam, Ted Kennedy leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown, and Barack Hussein Obama’s fondness for marijuana and cocaine as a young man, they have doubled down on cluelessness in their attempt to keep Judge Brett Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court Justice.

The Democrats have lost all their credibility through their unproven, insane attacks against Kavanaugh, including their pharasitical statement that he was “Guilty Until Proven Innocent”.

Given their Liberal belief system, which includes approval of ripping babies out of their mother’s womb, a barbaric act which they are afraid that Judge Kavanaugh will somehow take away their “right” to perform, and turning the sacred ceremony of marriage into a justification ritual for the same behavior that got Sodom and Gomorrah wiped off the map, that’s one heck of a Glass House that they’re throwing stones from.

I am glad for their sakes that the Libs in the Democratic Party and the Main Stream Media can reach back and “snatch a little purity” as Paul Simon wrote and sang in his song “Loves Me Like a Rock”.

However, they are fooling no one with their claims to possess the Moral High Ground.

For as Christ said in James 2:19…

You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that–and shudder.

And, as regards their Liberal Hypocrisy, Matthew 7:5 gives the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, some great advice…

You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Today , I am asking you to join me in prayer for Judge Kavanaugh and his family.

And, not just for them, but, also for those who are calling good, evil and evil, good, for as God’s Word tells us, we should pray for our enemies, even if they probably wouldn’t for us.

Finally, we should pray for our nation, that the “Faith of Our Fathers” will empower us to “fight the good fight” against those who would seek to take away the inalienable rights which Our Creator, in His infallible wisdom has so generously given us, “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.

NY Times Posts Op Ed By “Unnamed WH Insider” Attacking Trump…and Expects Us to Believe It

September 6, 2018

Donald_Trump_The_New_York_Times

FoxNews.com reports that

The New York Times on Wednesday published an explosive opinion piece written by an anonymous senior White House official who described a “two-track presidency” in which top officials are “working diligently from within to frustrate parts of [President Trump’s] agenda and his worst inclinations.”

The piece quickly triggered anger from inside the White House, as President Trump called it “gutless,” and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders demanded the unnamed author “resign.”

In the piece, entitled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” the author wrote that the alleged actions by White House officials were not part of “the popular ‘resistance’ of the left.”

The Times’ Twitter account indicated that the author was a man. However, a Times spokesperson told Fox News that the tweet in question “was drafted by someone who is not aware of the author’s identity, including the gender, so the use of ‘he’ was an error.”

Trump responded at a White House meeting with sheriffs from across America.

“If I weren’t here, I believe the New York Times probably wouldn’t exist,” the president said to laughter and applause from the assembled sheriffs. “And someday when I’m not president, which hopefully will be in about six-and-a-half years from now, The New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business … because there’ll be nothing to write.”

In a statement, Sanders said the author of the piece was “a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times.”

“We are disappointed, but not surprised, that the paper chose to publish this pathetic, reckless, and selfish op-ed. This is a new low for the so-called ‘paper of record,’ and it should issue an apology,” said Sanders, adding: “The individual behind this piece has chosen to deceive, rather than support, the duly elected President of the United States. He is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people. This coward should do the right thing and resign.”

Later Wednesday, Trump tweeted: “Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!”

“We are incredibly proud to have published this piece, which adds significant value to the public’s understanding of what is going on in the Trump administration from someone who is in a position to know,” a Times spokesperson said in response to the White House statements.

The op-ed’s author wrote that the officials “want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous … But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.”

…”From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief’s comments and actions,” the official wrote.

“Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back.”

The author specifically noted Trump’s reluctance to take action against the Russian government after a former Russian spy-turned-double agent and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent earlier this year in the U.K.

“He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior,” the official writes. “But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.”

The official said the like-minded colleagues were not carrying out the work of favorite Trump bogey “the so-called deep state,” but rather were working for “the steady state.” The writer also alleged that “there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment” to remove Trump from office because of the president’s “instability … But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. “

“So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction,” the author wrote, “until — one way or another — it’s over.”

How…noble? Hardly.

This op ed from the failing New York Times has all the validity of John Woodward’s book, which I wrote about yesterday.

I don’t know who is the bigger coward, the Times or the fictitious “White House Insider”, if he even exists.

It takes no guts to write a salacious article based on an anonymous source.

There is no way to fact-check an “unnamed source”. It is a Liberal reporter’s dream.

The writer can pull his or her “facts” out of their imagination and, as is the case in the above article, use their fictitious work as a bludgeon to destroy the credibility of their target.

This week, with the paid protestors and Liberal Senatorial shenanigans at the Kavanaugh Hearing, along with the Woodward Book and this Weekly World News-style article published by the once proud New York times, America has witnessed just how maniacal the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have become in their quest to somehow redo the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

If it was up to them, I truly believe that they would erase all of the domestic and Foreign policy gains made under President Trump, as well.

The Modern Liberals who are running the Democratic Party are so seduced by the failed theory of Marxism that they are willing to literally stage a coup in order to install Democratic Socialism as our form of government.

This whole effort to destroy President Trump from the FISA Dossier to Stormy Daniels to work of fiction being presented as being factual represents a new low in the history of our Two-Party System.

If the Democrats believe that they are doing themselves any favors by their out-of-control National Temper Tantrum, they are sorely mistaken.

Things could get very ugly if they do not rein in their anti-American actions and rhetoric.

Average Americans are not going to put up with this mess much longer.

November will not just be a Red Wave. It will be a Red Tsunami.

Mollie Tibbett’s Murderer’s Attorney Says Calling Client Illegal Immigrant “Just Rhetoric”…What?

August 24, 2018

mollie-tibbetts-usa-today-ml-180822_hpMain_16x9_992

The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform wrangled with the hot topic of Illegal Immigration for six years. President Clinton appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives.

A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:

Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.

I wonder what Rep. Jordan would think of her beloved Democratic Party, now that they have embraced and are welcoming the same illegality, which she was so clear about ?

And, how would she feel about the fact that innocent Americans, like Mollie Tibbetts, are being murdered with impunity by these uninvited guests?

FoxNews.com reports that

The attorney of Mollie Tibbetts’ suspected killer fought back Thursday night against investigators’ statements that his client, Cristhian Rivera, is an illegal immigrant, calling it “rhetoric.”

 “That’s your rhetoric on it,” attorney Allan Richards told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on “The Story.” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said Wednesday that Rivera, 24, has been in the U.S. illegally, and lived in Iowa for four to seven years.

MacCallum argued that his immigration status is “just a fact,” but Richards pushed back — continuing to refer to it as the anchor’s “point of view.”

“You want to jump to say they’re facts,” Richards said. “Have these people been under oath? Have these people provided the opportunity to Cristhian to present his point of view on the matter?”

When questioned about the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s preliminary autopsy results, which stated Tibbetts died of “sharp force injuries,” Richards called it simply “a report” that he needed to review before commenting on it.

“As far as the death, I’m real sorry about the death,” Richards told Fox News. “I’m not going to make any comment on a report until somebody testifies to, in more detail, concerning the matter.”

In addition to speaking to Richards, Fox News on Thursday interviewed the aunt of Iris Monarrez — Rivera’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his daughter, who went to high school with Tibbetts.

The aunt said that Rivera — whom she described as a good father to his daughter — lived with Monarrez until about a year and a half ago, when the couple broke up. Monarrez has since moved out of the area.

“He was a good person. He was a jokester,” the aunt said of Rivera, through a translator. “For us, he was a good and normal person. Not aggressive or violent, no. He was normal just like us.”

Relatives, according to Monarrez’s aunt, “can’t believe” Rivera’s alleged involvement, and said they were hoping “it’s probably an error and we’ll wake up from this nightmare.”

In the weeks when Tibbetts was missing, Rivera didn’t act differently, the aunt said. She added that when the family would get together, “we would talk about the situation,” and Rivera “would comment as well and we would all say that we were surprised and scared because this is a quiet town.”

“This has never happened around here and we were all sad while awaiting, pleading to God that she would be found alive and that everything would be fine,” she told Fox News. “He never displayed signs for us to suspect that he had anything to do with this.”

The aunt said that if Rivera is guilty of the crimes of which he’s accused, she just wants to know, “Why?”

“Why did you do this? You’re a talented young man. You had a future ahead of you. Why? Why did it have to come to this? That’s what I would ask him,” the aunt said. She said the family was awaiting DNA results, which she hoped would clear Rivera’s name.

I have a lot of trouble with someone describing an individual who entered our Sovereign Nation illegally and then stabbed to death an innocent young girl as a “good” person.

Unbelievable.

Remember the tragic murder of Kate Steinle in the “Sanctuary City ” of San Francisco?

An individual who entered our Sovereign Nation illegally and murdered one of our citizens was found “innocent” in a city which ignores the laws of our land and harbors these fugitives, giving them the ability to prey upon American Citizens.

Have you noticed that Liberals, like the accused’s lawyer in the above article always leave out the word “illegal” to describe these lawbreakers, here in our Sovereign Nation without our permission?

It is as if they believe that not saying the word “illegal” will somehow absolve them of the crime of breaking and entering into our country.

Democrats also ignore that while these “guests” (as Arizona’s Famous Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s successor called them) are in our country illegally, they are committing other crimes as well…including MURDER.

On April 24, 2010, I wrote a Blog titled simply, “For Mr. Krentz”, detailing the murder of Arizona Rancher Robert Krentz by an illegal alien…

Police say Robert Krentz, whose family has been ranching in southern Arizona since 1907, was gunned down early Saturday morning, March 27th, 2010, by an illegal immigrant while out on his ATV tending to fences and water lines on the family’s 34,000-acre cattle ranch.

Reached by phone early Tuesday at his family’s ranch, Andy Krentz, Krentz’s oldest son, said his father was a churchgoing man who routinely went out of his way to help those in need.

“My father was a very good family man,” Krentz told FoxNews.com. “He supported his kids, supported his family. He went out of his way to help anybody we could without regarding to who they were.  It didn’t matter who they were.”

Sue Krentz, Krentz’s wife, said she was “pretty overwhelmed” by her husband’s death, which coincided with her parents’ deteriorating health.

“This is icing on the cake,” Krentz said.

Unfortunately, Mr. Krentz’s murder was just a portent of things to come.

The kicker is, the clownish excuses for city officials running “Sanctuary Cities” are not only harboring fugitives, they want to allow them to vote!

Voting is an American Constitutional Right of self-determination.

Non-citizens have no such right.

I gave the following answer to a comment made by “Benito”, who submitted a rather lengthy comment to a blog I wrote about Illegal Immigration on May 19, 2010.

Benito, I approved your comment to ask you a few questions. First, you write very well. Next, a few questions. What part of the word “illegal” do you not understand? 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, you are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens. You are no better than someone who breaks into someone’s home, does their dishes, cuts their yard, cleans their house, and then helps themselves to their food and drives their car without asking. This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given. And with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way. Illegal immigration reminds me of the amorous boyfriend who wants everything a young woman will give him, but will leave her at the first mention of marriage. I wish you no ill, amigo, but understand this: This is not a civil rights issue. Illegals do not have the same rights as American Citizens. With our rights, come the responsibilities of being an American citizen. The Mexican flag, by protocol, will always be flown in a subordinate position to the American Flag in this country. And, the American Dialect of the English language is the language spoken in this country.

Vaya con Dios.

Our Federal Taxes are being used to pay “Sanctuary Cities” to ignore our laws and house murderers, who, if our Immigration Laws were being properly enforced, would not be here killing innocent Americans. Compassion is one thing. Sanctuary Cities are an exercise in blatant, law-breaking stupidity.

All Government Grants to these cities, who are breaking the law, must be stopped now.

I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children. 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.

Criminals are criminals, whether they are here legally or illegally.

They deserve no sanctuary.

Mollie Tibbetts, Kate Steinle, Mr. Krentz did not deserve to be murdered by barbarians who had already broken our laws once by trespassing into our Sovereign Nation.

OUR FOUNDERS ESTABLISHED AMERICA AS ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE.

NOT THE TOWER OF BABEL OR SOME THIRD WORLD LAWLESS HELLHOLE WHERE LAWLESSNESS RULES.

Build the wall. Secure our borders. Enforce the existing anti-illegal immigration laws.

Mollie Tibbetts and the other American Citizens who have been killed by illegal immigrants deserve no less.

Kevin Hart and the 2018 MTV VMAs Get Political and Attack Trump…I Want MY MTV…Back

August 21, 2018

1534815356300

Back in the 1980s, I was working in the Community Programming Department of the local Cable Provider when we received in the mail a 3/4″ tape (that was back in the days of analog format, kiddies) of a new cable channel which would be completely devoted to a new concept called “Music Videos”.

On the tape were three songs, “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins, “So Caught Up in You” by .38 Special, and “One Step Ahead” by an avant-garde group named Split Enz.

Of course, that channel was named MTV and their slogan was exactly right.

We never did look at music the same way again…and I had the black satin MTV Jacket to prove it.

Now, that was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away where entertainment, including listenable music and honest-to-goodness creativity mattered more than embracing Marxism and “radically changing” America.

FoxNews.com reports that

While presenting at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Kevin Hart told the audience they were “allowed to kneel” seemingly referencing how NFL players have been kneeling out of protest during the national anthem.

“This game you’re allowed to kneel,” Hart said while presenting with fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish.

He continued: “You can do whatever you want there’s no old white men to stop you.”

Hart, 39, also said the award show was like “a typical day at the White House.”

“Beefs pop off, bad language, people run to the bathroom and send out crazy tweets,” Hart said. “It’s basically like a typical day at the White House. In your face Trump, suck it.”

Earlier this month, NFL players continued to protest during the national anthem on August 9 as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason.

Some players held their fists in the air, while others decided to kneel, despite the controversy surrounding the action.

Hart’s outburst was one of several political moments during the Monday night award show.

Rapper Logic donned a shirt that read “F— the wall” while singing his song “One Day” with Ryan Tedder. The 28-year-old singer was joined on stage by immigrant leaders, parents and children, all wearing t-shirts that said “we are all human beings,” in protest of the Trump administration’s family separation and detention policy.

During the performance, it showed families being separated on stage by a human-made wall. When the wall fell towards the end of the performance, the children and their parents reunited.

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, which was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, also featured a performance by Jennifer Lopez who took home the Michael Jackson Vanguard award. The star was joined by her 10-year-old twins Max and Emme, along with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez for her big moment.

MTV changed from being a music channel to a vehicle for Liberal Propaganda several decades ago.

Now, there are a couple of generations of Americans who seemingly have no idea what the original purpose of MTV was., and that it actually delivered entertainment and not indoctrination.

Just like every other Awards Show, the Video Music Awards are nothing but a bunch of Liberals congratulating each other for playing their fans for suckers while attacking President Trump and the values which the overwhelming majority of Americans who live between the coasts share.

You want to know the biggest disappointment of this year’s VMAs?

Kevin Hart.

I thought that he had more sense than that after he came out saying a few weeks ago that he does not get political in his stand-up performances because he does not want to alienate half of his audience.

Well…so much for that noble sentiment.

At this point MTV should just go ahead and change the title of the ceremony from the “Video Music Awards” to The MTV Democratic Propaganda Awards for the Young, Clueless, and Ungrateful.

A little honesty from those self-appointed political pundits would be quite refreshing.

I guess that I’ll just have to be content with listening to the Music Choice 70s and 80s Channels on my cable system at home.

I miss the good old days.

I want MY MTV…back.

Hollywood, Christian Americans, and Political Upheaval…the Devil is in the Details

August 12, 2018

flag-and-cross

With all of the anti-Trump hatred, bile, and bitterness coming from the isolated Left Coast City of Hollywood, California lately, it is nice to be able to post a “feel-good” story for a change.

The Christian Post reports that

“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt was spotted with his new girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger after the two attended church last week.

Pratt and Schwarzenegger, oldest daughter of actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and broadcast journalist Maria Shriver, have been linked together since June, according to PEOPLE, which reported that the couple spent this past Father’s Day together. 

The 39-year-old actor and the 28-year-old author were spotted kissing after attending a Sunday service in California with Pratt’s 5-year-old son, TMZ reported earlier this month.

Both Pratt and Schwarzenegger have been vocal about their faith in public forums. The lifestyle blogger was raised Catholic but in recent years has attended nondenominational Christian churches with her mother, brother Patrick and lately now with Pratt. She often shares inspiring quotes on Twitter and recently retweeted Rev Run: “God’s way is better than your way. His plan is bigger than yours, it’ll be more rewarding than your wildest dream. Now trust him and Chill.”

Pratt, who starred in “Avengers: Infinity War,” has made it a goal to share his faith with others. After his recent divorce from actress Anna Faris, he revealed that his pastor’s books have been helping him keep his faith strong.

“I read books by my Pastor, Chad Veach in Zoe Church LA,” he said in a home video posted in December. “I find his book Faith Forward Future to be very helpful!”

TMZ first reported that Pratt was attending Veach’s church after his very public split with his wife of eight years. The actor has taken his son, Jack, to the church at the Del Rey Theater in Los Angeles several times.

The “Jurassic World” actor recently accepted the Generation Award at this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards and used the platform to share nine points of advice, including Christian guidance.

“God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that, I do,” he said.

On Aug. 2, he also sported a “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt while leaving the gym in Los Angeles and pointed to it for paparazzi to see.

These two grounded Christian Americans are a breath of fresh air .

If you, like myself , are a Political Junkie, and spend any time at all on Internet Political Website comments sections and political chat boards, you might think that Christian Americans are an endangered species.

Far from it.

According to a Gallup Poll taken in 2015, 3/4ths of our country believe that Jesus Christ is their Personal Savior and proudly proclaim themselves to be Christians.

So, if Americans believe in the Son of God, does that mean that they believe in the Fallen Angel, formerly known as Lucifer, also?

You betcha.

In September of 2013, YouGov.com conducted a poll which showed that almost six in ten Americans believe that Satan is real, and more than half of Americans believe that people can be possessed by demons.

Is all this upheaval our nation is feverishly attempting to recover from, with no help from “The Resistances”, “Antifa”, “The Far Left”, or whatever you want to call the Anti-American immature idiots, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?

If  you look at 70% of the movies that Tinsel Town produces for public consumption nowadays, they seek to glorify the Powers of Darkness….and they seem to be very popular with young Americans.

Why is the Occult, including Satan and his demons, so fascinating to impressionable young Americans?

People who take the existence of  Satan lightly, eventually wind up in some sort of trouble, and those who worship Satan wind up in even greater trouble.

Back in the 1960s, the late, beautiful actress Jayne Mansfield posed for a series of publicity pictures with the Head Priest of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey. The pictures showing her with LaVey, included several shots of taking their version of Communion, simulating drinking blood from a goblet, offered by the priest. She even wore a pink and black medallion of Satan and the goat-headed Baphomet to the 1966 San Francisco Film Festival. Later, the beautiful actress died in a freak car accident in which she was decapitated.

Now, far be it from me to link one to the other. That is up for you to decide for yourself.

Is all this upheaval our nation is currently facing, caused by the Democrats, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their young minions, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?

John Adams, the second President of these United States, delivered the following message to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts on October 11, 1798:

Gentleman,

While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere, and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays I have received from Major-General Hull and Brigadier, General Walker your unanimous address from Lexington, animated with a martial spirit, and expressed with a military dignity becoming your character and the memorable plains on which it was adopted. In the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the World; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

The reason that our nation is facing the difficulties we are is the belief by those who proclaim themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”, that they are above the old-fashioned, passe notions of morality and ethics, good and evil, and the Sovereignty of God.

In the opinion of this Christian American living in the Heartland, they have made a grave mistake.

Evil exists and these fools opened the door to Satan in our society a long time ago.

When it all comes crashing down around them, what are they going to say?

The Devil made me do it?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12

NFL Tells Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to Shut Up About the Anthem – Liberals Continue Quest to Destroy the Game

July 31, 2018

untitled (180)

The left has got this game in its sights. I have warned everybody about this. When I do, people think I’m a nut, a kook. “Nobody can bring down the NFL, what are you talking about, Rush? You see politics in everything and you think that these political forces on the left have the ability to bring about change.” What in the world is happening to our culture, folks? The left targets something it doesn’t like and they never give up and they keep going until they ruin it. And I’m telling you, National Football League is in their crosshairs right now. – Rush Limbaugh, September 10, 2014

Star-Telegram.com reports that

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is now suddenly listening to the NFL.

Four days after seemingly defying the NFL and letting the world know about his team’s zero-tolerance policy regarding standing for the national anthem, Jones is now not talking about the issue because he has been told not to by the league.

Jones informed several local television stations who had booked him for interviews on their Sunday night show from training camp in Oxnard, Calif., that questions about the national anthem and his team’s policy were not permitted because the NFL had told him to stop speaking on the matter.

Doocy said he was told by the Cowboys public relations staff that he could not ask any questions about the national anthem at the last minute. He made the editorial decision to nix the interview.

Jones did appear on other local channels but without being asked about the anthem.

Jones’ sudden adherence to league policy comes less than a week after he separated himself from the NFL with his pronouncement of a team-mandated anthem policy of standing to attention with toes on the line or face the prospect of getting cut.

That it came after the league’s announcement that it had put its revised policy on hold while negotiating a joint plan with the NFL Player’s Association certainly raised eyebrows.

Several Cowboys, including quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, have said they had no problem with Jones’ anthem stance because they planned to stand as a team.

Players across the league have decried the comments while openly questioning how the NFL and NFLPA can have a meaningful negotiation with Jones already deciding on his team’s policy.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, one of many players who have protested during the anthem the past couple of years to raise awareness about police brutality toward African-Americans and other forms of social injustice, called Jones “a bully” on Friday.

“I think it’s unfortunate that you have owners like him that use his position to intimidate and intentionally thwart even the idea of his players thinking individually or having a voice about issues that affect their communities daily, which is unfortunate,” Jenkins told reporters.

Yeah. How dare he honor our flag and what it stands for.

This nation is still experiencing a Political Division of a magnitude never before seen.

A Political Division which came to fruition during the 8 long arduous years of the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

The NFLPA was not protesting during those years, however.

Just Colin Kaepernick and he did it to impress his Muslim girlfriend, a poor choice which led to his present unemployment, along with the cold hard fact that he is actually not that good of a quarterback.

No matter the feeble explanations which have been given by the NFL Players Association and the spineless Liberal Management of the NFL, the fact of the matter is that the election of Donald J. Trump and the poor advice of external Liberal Protest Groups, such as Black Lives Matter, have caused these players, at least some of whom graduated college “Thank You, Laudy”, instead of Cum Laude, to make the decision to kneel and disrespect the flag and the national anthem of a country which has made them multi-millionaires for playing a game which the majority of American kids growing up in the Heartland played out in our yards with our friends.

It is very apparent that before the beginning of the NFL’s 2017-2018 Season, those same Liberals whom Rush Limbaugh spoke about in 2014 had spoken to Commissioner Goodell concerning giving said “professionals” the freedom to exercise their “First Amendment Rights” during the course of Game Day Activities.

It is now quite apparent to anyone with a lick of common sense that this organized protest by the NFL Players has NEVER been about  “Police Brutality” against black Americans.

Those who have influenced these players to kneel have played these poor saps for suckers.

I truly believe that.

If you don’t believe that to be the case, go back and read all of the articles, written by Liberal writers bemoaning the “violent NFL” and the subsequent articles written about the “Concussion Scandal” in the league.

Heck, go rent Will Smith’s bomb of a movie about the “problem”, titled simply “Concussion”.

Liberals have always turned up their noses at the NFL AND their fans.

What better way to kill two birds with one stone than to convince the players that it is cool to protest on “company time” by sharing a minority political philosophy through insulting our municipal police forces and the symbols of our country at the same time?

Who in their right mind would believe that would be accepted by average Americans?

Probably the same simpletons who believed the National Polls predicting that Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States of America.

Buh Bye, NFL

You turned America’s Pastime into Political Theater.

And, America has turned you off.

Until He Comes,

Trump and Times Publisher Tete a Tete Turns Into Twitter Tiff

July 30, 2018

Donald Trump Elected New York Times Newspaper pertaining to Nytimes Com Today's Paper

On July 20th, President Donald J. Trump met with A.J. Sulzberger, the Publisher of the New York Time.

Yesterday, Trump posted the following tweet about that meeting…

In response to the President’s tweet, the Publisher of The New York Times posted these remarks about their meeting…

My main purpose for accepting the meeting was to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.

I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.

I told him that although the phrase “fake news” is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists “the enemy of the people.” I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.

I repeatedly stressed that this is particularly true abroad, where the president’s rhetoric is being used by some regimes to justify sweeping crackdowns on journalists. I warned that it was putting lives at risk, that it was undermining the democratic ideals of our nation, and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press.

Throughout the conversation I emphasized that if President Trump, like previous presidents, was upset with coverage of his administration he was of course free to tell the world. I made clear repeatedly that I was not asking for him to soften his attacks on The Times if he felt our coverage was unfair. Instead, I implored him to reconsider his broader attacks on journalism, which I believe are dangerous and harmful to our country.

Which, in turn, led to the following tweets from the President…

Here is my question for Mr. Sulzberger…

In what way are President Trump’s tweets about modern “journalism” “harmful to our country”?

Since we are not face to face, I will answer that question for you.

The answer is: The President’s tweets are NOT harmful to our country.

Like President Ronald Reagan before him, he is bypassing your newspaper and the rest of the servile Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media, in order to communicate directly to the American People.

By tweeting, the President does not have to worry about the ideological filters or blatant Liberal Spin which, in this “enlightened age”, has taken the place of good old-fashioned objective journalism.

The reason why your newspaper, the once world-renowned “Gray Lady”, has fallen from the atmospheric heights of being considered the pinnacle of journalistic endeavor to being nothing by an over-priced birdcage liner, is because of your obvious bias in favor of a political ideology which, despite your best efforts, remains the political viewpoint of a minority of Americans.

The fact that your publication has been cited numerous times over the last several years for being ethically challenged and having a propensity for posting fake news stories hasn’t helped your circulation, either.

Main Stream Media members, such as your newspaper and The Washington Post, which the President also cited, became spoiled during the two terms of President George W. Bush, because he decided not to fight back against your fake news stories and scurrilous attacks.

And then, you enjoyed the favor of King Barack The First, whom your gleefully served for 8 long years, applauding and supporting his every move, while telling us how gracious and refined his anti-American mooching wife was and how beautiful her arms were.

Which brings us to the present and an American President whom you all revile because he accomplished what you had all predicted was an impossible feat, beating Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Presidency of the United States of America.

And then, he had the nerve not only to go straight to the American public through the use of Twitter, he fought back against your attacks and called your lies and innuendoes based upon information gathered from “unnamed sources” (probably the voices in reporters’ heads) what they were: FAKE NEWS.

Mr. Sulzberger, I feel your “concern”. In fact I am sharing a tear over your dilemma…from laughing hysterically.

So, before your once-great newspaper goes the way of the Dodo and all that is left is you and your laptop, just remember what the late, great Will Rogers used to say,

All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that’s an alibi for my ignorance.

Sasha Baron Cohen Wears Disguises to Interview and Mock Americans and Our Values – An “Ignorant Hillbilly” Responds

July 16, 2018

borat-sacha-baron-cohen-20th-century-fox-everett-030416-1276x850

“The challenge is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime: donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets. Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country,” – Sarah Palin

FoxNews.com reports that

Sarah Palin apparently wasn’t the only public figure duped by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for his new show “Who is America?”

Veteran broadcaster Ted Koppel, former U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio also agreed to interviews with a disguised Cohen, according to reports.

Koppel told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that he was asked to be interviewed for an upcoming Showtime series called “Age of Reason.” He said he met a wheelchair-bound man who was equipped with an oxygen tank. He said he was told the show would be about “ordinary folk interviewing the expert.”

However, the former “Nightline” anchor said things took a turn when the interviewer, played by Cohen, started to ask him about President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The actor started to press Koppel on Trump’s crowd being the biggest ever, he told the Hollywood Reporter.

“When I disagreed, he showed me a photograph on his laptop of a huge inaugural crowd and a man holding a digital clock on a pole,” he said. “The clock said 11 p.m. My interviewer pointed out that if the crowd was that huge at 11, hours after the actual inauguration, it had to have been the biggest ever.”

Koppel ended the interview soon after a brief exchange, according to the magazine. Koppel said he never signed a release.

Meanwhile, Moore threatened a lawsuit against Showtime, if the network “airs a defamatory attack on [his] character, Variety reported. Moore said he was tricked when he was invited to receive an award for his “strong support of Israel.”

“I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate, and mock not only Israel, but also religious conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh, and Dick Cheney,” Moore said.

Former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio admitted in an interview with Breitbart that he, too, was duped by Cohen, who this time posed as a Finnish comedian.

Arpaio said he felt “uncomfortable” by some of the words that Cohen used in the interview, but never walked out.

Palin, the former vice presidential candidate, blasted Cohen on Tuesday for duping her into doing an interview. She claimed she had been approached to participate in a “legit opportunity” to honor “American vets.”

She said she stayed for the interview “out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform.” She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced “a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm.”

Cohen, in character, responded to Palin’s criticisms in a letter. He said he believes Palin was hit by a “b——t grenade.”

Showtime defended Cohen’s antics in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

Cohen “is the premier provocateur of our time but not for the sake of ‘gotcha’ moments,” Showtime CEO David Nevins said. “Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.”

If there was ever a perfect example of the differences between the Far Left, including those in the “Entertainment Industry” like Sacha Baron Cohen and “average” Americans, like those of us here in the Heartland who are responsible for the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America, here it is,

In keeping with the arrogant smarmy attitudes recently exhibited in front of Congressional Hearings by the Deep State Operatives in the hierarchy of the FBI, Cohen looks down his upturned nose at the traditional values held by average Americans in his new series.

How he accomplishes his “mission” says more about him than the unsuspecting victims whom he takes advantage of.

All of the individuals mentioned in the above article have accomplished a great deal in their chosen fields of endeavor.

If Cohen had chosen to be honest and asked for interviews as himself, he might have received them.

However, honesty and Modern Liberals do not walk the same path.

Instead, Cohen was trying to prove how much smarter Liberals like himself are than Conservatives, or in the case of Ted Koppel “Traditionalists”.

I suppose that the former “Borat” thought that he was being hilarious in his duplicity.

However, like late night talk show hosts such as Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel, Cohen severely overestimates his talent to make people laugh and entertain them.

Liberals always believe themselves to be the smartest ones in any room that they walk into and Sacha Baron Cohen is no exception.

The thing is, though, these “super geniuses” never seem to be able to challenge their targets face to face, one on one. They always have to employ some sort of hook or angle, such as using Liberal Debate Moderators, or in the case of Cohen, cowardly, tasteless disguises.

Hey, Sacha…I have some news for you, Skippy.

Americans between the coasts aren’t impressed.

Just like Hillary Clinton and the Deep State hierarchy ensconced up in the Beltway, you have overestimated your own intelligence.

We “ignorant hillbillies” think that you’re nothing but a pathetic loser.

Until He Comes,
