Throwing the First Stone: Roy Moore and The Nonexistent Political “Moral Superiority” of Liberals

December 10, 2017

untitled (191) 

A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection

3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” 6This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”  – John 8: 3-8 (ESV)

Yesterday, as I was engaged in one of my favorite activities perusing Facebook Political Pages, I came across a meme which a Liberal “Troll” had posted, using an image of Jesus to attack Alabama Republican Senatorial Candidate, Judge Roy Moore.

I am not going to repeat the wording, However, it had something to do with Jesus speaking to a woman about rape.

The galling thing about it, was that not only was it a blasphemous and downright stupid meme, the useless individual who posted it did not even believe in Jesus Christ.

For the last couple of decades, Modern American Liberals (i.e., Democrats and those too ashamed to call themselves Liberal Democrats and who instead refer to themselves as “Independents”) have always approached the topic of politics as if they were innately possessed with some sort of “moral superiority” that had been gifted to them by the God of Abraham, whom they don’t even believe in.

Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Political Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being…until they need to reference Him for political leverage and justification.

Don’t believe me?

Remember what happened at the 2012 Democratic National Convention?

Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.

C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.

More information from the Associated Press:
Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The move came after criticism from Republicans.

Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

He called for a vote three times before ruling.

The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.

Liberals’ self-righteousness even allows them to blame natural disasters on a sitting Republican President by claiming that he does not have “a fear of the Lord”, even though nationally known Christian Author and Radio Host Dr, James Dobson spoke to Donald J. Trump before his election and found him to indeed be a Fellow Believer…a Christian American.

Funny. I did not realize that natural disasters were a Presidential Power given by the Constitution.

TheHill.com reports that

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump’s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the “wrath of God” or have any regard for the “existential consequences” of his environmental policies.

“I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility … this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is set to air on Sunday.

Brown, who studied to become a Jesuit priest prior to entering politics, has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration.

His latest comments come as the southern portion of California battles massive wildfires that in just a few days have damaged thousands of acres of property and destroyed hundreds of buildings.

Trump declared a state of emergency in California, which permits federal assistance to supplement the state and local response to the fires. 

The order allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief efforts in the areas affected by the wildfires.

Northern California grappled with a series of wildfires earlier this year that took the lives of 44 people and resulted in billions of dollars of damage. 

It tickled me to read that old hippie and former boyfriend of Linda Ronstadt (look her up, children), Governor Moonbeam himself, attempting to sound pious.

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

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

What is amazing to me, though, is how, even though Obama is no longer President, American Christianity is still constantly attacked on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way…as the past year since November 8th, 2016 has plainly showed.

For Liberal Democrats to attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against the actions and policies of President Trump and Republican Candidates for Congress, after turning their back on God for years, is a display of hypocrisy that would had made even the ancient Pharisees blush.

In fact, their desperation reminds me of a passage found in the New Testament,

22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ – Matthew 7:22-23

One must always be careful…because when you point a finger at someone, there are always four pointing back at you.

Just ask Al Franken.

Veterans Day Weekend and the “No Greater Love” of Our Brightest and Best – A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection

November 12, 2017

bible-american-flag1

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

D-Day, also called the Battle of Normandy, was fought on June 6, 1944, between the Allied nations and German forces occupying Western Europe. To this day, 70 years later, it  still remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Almost three million troops crossed the English Channel from England to Normandy to be used as human cannon fodder in an invasion of occupied France.

Among the young men who stepped off those boats, in a hail of gunfire, was a fellow named Edward, whom everyone called Ned, from the small town of Helena, Arkansas.  Already in his young life, Ned had been forced to drop out of school in the sixth grade, in order to work at the local movie theatre to help support his mother, brother, and sister, faced with the ravages of the Great Depression.

He was a gentle man who loved to laugh and sing, having recorded several 78 rpm records in the do-it-yourself booths of the day. And now, he found himself, a Master Sergeant in an Army Engineering Unit, stepping off a boat into the unknown, watching his comrades being mercilessly gunned down around him.

Ned, along with the rest of his unit who survived the initial assault, would go on to assist in the cleaning out of the Concentration Camps, bearing witness to man’s inhumanity to man.

The horrors he saw had a profound effect on Ned.  One which he would keep to himself for the remainder of his life.  While his children knew that he served with an Engineering Unit in World War II, they did not know the full extent of his service, until they found his medal, honoring his participation in the Invasion of Normandy, going through his belongings, after he passed away on December 29, 1997.

That brave American Hero was my Daddy.

On a night in 1966, I was 7 years old, laying on his family’s den couch in Memphis, TN, watching my favorite TV Series “Batman” with a fever of 105, brought about by a severe bronchial infection. Tending to me were 3 veterans of World War II: my Daddy, my Uncle “R” (Robert), US Air Force, and my Uncle Perriman, a full-blooded Indian from Albuquerque, who was an Army Corpsman.

Those three veterans, now all gone, took turns putting cold wash cloths under my arms and on my forehead, until my fever finally broke, sometime during the night.

It being Veterans Day yesterday, I found myself thinking about my Daddy all day, while I was working.

He was still on my mind as I settled into my side of our double recliner with my wife next to me.

While watching TV and perusing through Facebook Political Pages, I stumbled upon a meme that, as a Christian American, having been led to Christ by my Daddy, almost made me lose my witness.

This special individual had a posted a painting of Adolph Hitler in full Nazi Uniform, with the graphic

HOW MANY LIKES CAN THIS WWII VETERAN GET?

Needless to say, I let young “Skillet” know how I felt about his attempt to be “conversational”.

He suggested that I was “triggered”.

I replied that “This isn’t about being triggered. It’s about the difference between right and wrong.”

Please allow me to elaborate…

There has been a question gnawing at me for quite a while now. Ever since all of the Astroturf National Protests featuring the BLM, illegal aliens, and millennials in desperate need of a “safe space” started greeting average Americans like you and me when we turned on the television to watch the news.

If America was led by the likes of Modern American Liberals during the frightening days when Hitler rose to power after the Beer Hall Putsch and that faithful day of December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy”, while at the same time the young Americans of that era were the millennials of today, would America have stood up the Axis of Evil?

Would the millennials that we are watching throwing hissy fits and railing against the President and traditional American Faith and Values on the Evening News and the Social Media have the guts to do what the Greatest Generation did?

Would Modern American Liberals be willing to make the sacrifices that my Daddy and Mother and the rest of their generation did?

I seriously doubt it.

There wouldn’t be long lines at the Armed Forces Recruitment Office trying to sign up to serve their country.

Heck, these days it is hard to get them to move out of their parents’ house, much less be willing to fight and die for their country.

There are those millennials out there who would rather defecate on our flag than to die for it.

And, while they talk a good game about being “Stronger Together”, when the rubber meets the road, it’s every man (or woman) for themselves.

Instead of the Greatest Generation, we are presently having to deal with the selfish “Generation Snowflake”.

It’s like watching an angry child in their Mom’s shopping cart at Walmart.

There are no absolutes with them.

A lot of them simply have no “attitude of gratitude” and no sense of the blessings which they have received simply by being born in America.

Nor do they seem to understand where this freedom which they flaunt comes from and how much American Blood was spilled so that they might act like ungrateful, ill-mannered brats on Social Media.

And, when I think about it, that it why it was such a shock to them that the rest of us voted against their vision of American on November 8th, 2016. In fact, it was such a shock to these culturally hip Americans that they have been throwing a National Temper Tantrum over the election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President ever since and taking it out on all of us average Americans on Social Media every chance that they get.

Proverbs 22:6 advises us to

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

What the disrespectful members of this generation continue to demonstrate on a daily basis is the fact that they did not have a “Board of Education” applied to their “seat of Knowledge” when the situation called for it.

“Triggered”? I guess I was.

Because my Daddy and Mother raised me in the way I should go.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

Antifa Organization, “Refuse Fascism”, to Protest in 20 U.S. Cities Today. Who is Funding It?

November 4, 2017

EBT-Flag-600-CI

We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.  – George Orwell, “1984”

FoxNews.com asks

Will the so-called “Antifa apocalypse” come with a bang or a whimper?

A series of anti-government, leftist rallies set to descend on major cities nationwide Saturday is drawing the attention of local officials, who, like the organizers themselves, fear the events could be hijacked by violent masked anarchists.

The left-wing “Refuse Fascism” group is using Nov. 4 as its kickoff for demonstrations in nearly two dozen U.S. cities, protests it says will continue “day after day and night after night ─ not stopping ─ until our DEMAND is met.”

The gatherings are being described as a kind of “Antifa apocalypse” on right-wing media, according to The Washington Post. Several sites are expressing particular alarm about the loosely defined left-leaning group, which preaches a version of ferocious anti-government chaos that often uses “domestic terrorist violence,” according to a recent FBI report.

Among the 20 cities where rallies are set to occur are Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.

 

The anarchist group, whose name comes from term “anti-fascist,” made news earlier this week for allegedly harassing a female reporter at Columbia University and for seven arrests at California State University, Fullerton, amid reports of head-punching and pepper-spraying.

“You cannot try to ‘wait things out’,” a Refuse Fascism call to action reads. “Those who lived through Nazi Germany and sat on the sidelines, looking on as Hitler demonized, criminalized, and eventually rounded up one group after another, became shameful collaborators with monstrous crimes.”

Tapping into movements like Occupy Wall Street and the Women’s March, Refuse Fascism said it hopes to protest non-stop, 24/7 “until this regime is driven from power.”

The organization is engaged with a broad coalition of groups, including the Revolutionary Communist Party — but says they are committed to a nonviolence stance.

Zee told The Washington Post his organization does “uphold the legal right to self-defense,” but that they “don’t initiate violence” and they “oppose violence.”

Previous instances of antifa violence have, however, been justified as “self-defense.”

“Fascism cannot be defeated by speech,” Darmouth Prof. Mark Bray said in August.

Some of Refuse Fascism’s literature and visuals are also drawing scrutiny for their use of violent images.

Refuse Fascism ATL’s poster asks Atlanta demonstrators to bring “pots and pans” with an image of a pole poked through Trump’s severed head, drawn as a pig’s with flies buzzing around it.

Chicago’s invite includes an image of a rope pulling down a Trump statue, which is already cut in half.

“Show this damn Trump and Pence regime that they do not rule over us,” one organizer said in a video posted on Facebook. “Let us stand together, come together, and fight this regime on November fourth.”

“’This Nightmare Must End’ captures how millions of people feel right now…where you may face persecution or even death,” said Andy Zee, a member of the advisory board of Refuse Fascism, according to the Revolutionary Communist website.

Zee called for a “ferocious struggle” because “normal forms of petition (like protest as usual) DO NOT APPLY with Trump.” Recently, several members shut down a Los Angeles highway with “Nov. 4 It Begins” signs in a show of “non-violent civil disobedience.”

Zee cites the pamphlet “The Coming Civil War,” by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party and architect of the new synthesis of communism, to point out why the group demands “the whole regime must go.”

Avakian brands Pence the political leader of “Christian fascism,” a “fascism wrapped in the Bible taken literally and the American flag, saturated with racism, misogyny, and xenophobia,” which he compares to the “kind of Islamic fundamentalism that is tearing up the Mideast.”

Zee also says news organizations such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post “must go all out” to “hound the enemy: the regime, Congress, administrators from agencies such as ICE, the Border Patrol, and more.”

Zee said the group has the necessary “people” ─ and “anger” ─ to remove the “cruel and brutal future” of the Trump administration on Nov. 4.

All this railing against “Authority” and the perceived “fascism” of a sitting President of the United States

Why, it’s reminiscent of the old days of the Weather Underground and “Bomber” Bill Ayers.

Speaking of which…

On Thursday, April 27th, 2017,  the following information was posted in an article found on gatewaypundit.com

Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.

Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.

“Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.

Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.

That article in turn referenced another article found on breitbart.com on February 3rd of this year, which related the following information…

One of the far-left “anti-fascist” groups behind last week’s riot in Berkeley, Refuse Fascism, received $50,000 from a group backed by socialist billionaire George Soros, according to the Daily Caller.

The Alliance for Global Justice, which is funded by the George Soros-backed Tides Foundation, reportedly donated $50,000 to fund Refuse Fascism, which openly brags about using violence to shut down conservative and libertarian speech. 

“While it is unclear whether those who carried out the violence were paid to do so, the benefactors of the Alliance for Global Justice — and Refuse Fascism — are listed online,” reported the Daily Caller. “According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016. One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.”

These Antifa Idiots are following a well-written out plan.

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, a favorite of the 60s counter-culture, was on the reading list of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and his First Secretary of State and Failed 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Let’s look at rule #8 – rule #13:

8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

It’s very apparent from what is happening during Trump’s Presidency that somebody’s read Alinsky’s book.

 

 

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

In order to ensure that no leader of this new nation would go mad with power, and become a tyrannical despot, our Founders set up a System of Checks and Balances, overseen by Three Branches of Government: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial, with each branch having a distinct and LIMITED  role.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

During 8 years of a Previous Imperious Presidency, we suffered under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority was not based on color, rather, it was one based on political ideology and self-interest.

As the past several years showed before the election of Donald J. Trump as President, this minority, buoyed by money from this “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, were willing to shut down anyone who threatened “what they had” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices and beliefs, which we, as a country, had gone to war against in the past.

What the spoiled brats of the Antifa Movement do not seem to grasp is that America is, as I stated earlier, a Constitutional Republic.

Our Presidents do not ascend into office by mob rule.

On a different website, you will find these words…

Where is this art of ruling, to say nothing of the art of leadership? It is only the unscrupulousness for robbery. And when this same man then says: “We have a fine instinct for idealism and material values.” Yes indeed they have. They have destroyed idealism everywhere, and they have grabbed and taken possession of material worth and always grabbed and taken possession of it, too, by brutal force only. For in 300 years that nation has oppressed and yoked and subjected nation after nation, people after people, race after race.

No, boys and girls, the following quote did not come from the “Refuse Fascism” website, although it certainly reads like something they would write.

This quote comes from the Jewish Virtual Library. It is taken from a speech, delivered in 1942, given on the 19th Anniversary of the “Beer Hall Putsch”, by German Chancellor Adolph Hitler.

The Beer Hall Putsch was an incident that took place on November 8, 1923, when Nazi troops under the direction of Hermann Goering surrounded the a beer hall in Munich, Germany. At 8:30 p.m., Hitler and his storm troopers burst into the beer hall causing instant panic. Hitler announced to the crowd that the Revolution had begun, and went to the back room of the hall to try to persuade the local officials to capitulate to him. They wouldn’t. Hitler’s attempt to seize power that night failed. But, thanks to word of mouth, and Hitler’s use of propaganda, a seed was planted, that would eventually lead to World War II.

By now, you are probably asking:

Okay. So what does one thing have to do the other?

Hitler eventually rose to power by praying upon the economic despair, hopelessness, and avarice of the German people, whose country was savaged by the Great Depression of 1929.

Hitler chose his nations Jewish Population as his scapegoat, blaming them for Germany’s plight. He soon attracted legions of young men, swayed by his propaganda, who began to march the streets of Germany, intimidating anyone who dared to disagree with them.

Hitler formed a political party, naming it The National Socialist Party, which led to he and his thugs being called “Nazis”.

The era became known as the “Rise of Fascism”.

As I have related before, according to various sources, during the Nazi Occupation of Hungary in the 1940s, the Funder of moveon.org and the never-ending protests against President Donald J. Trump by groups such as Refuse Fascism and BLM, George Soros , reported his own countrymen to the Nazis, facilitating their removal via “the long train ride from which very few ever returned”.

These Modern Day Bolsheviks are unknowingly doing the bidding of evil fascists themselves, just as the original Bolsheviks did.

The Antifa, the BLM, and all of the other radicalized “Social Organizations” are carrying out the Machiavellian Plans of a very evil man, who almost bankrupted England, and, in his long life, has stood for the very things which these “Social Justice Warriors” claim to be fighting against.

Irony is embarrassed.

Are the Kneeling NFL Players Actually Unwitting Dupes to Their Own League’s Purposeful Demise?

October 16, 2017

Reaction-NFL-players-kneel-lock-arms-National-Anthem

dupe –  a person who unquestioningly or unwittingly serves a cause or another person

The Washington Post reports that

National anthem demonstrations remain a predominant theme Sunday, with NFL owners and NFL Players Association representatives set to consider at this week’s ownership meetings how to channel the activism and passions shown by those who take a knee or link arms into community action.

The challenge for the NFL’s owners remains finding a compromise that pleases fans and players alike rather than issuing a mandate as they consider whether to alter the game-day guidelines that say players “should” stand for the anthem to something stronger.

Sunday brought the latest wave of demonstrations, including from Colin Kaepernick’s former team, the San Francisco 49ers. Six active members of the team, along with one inactive, took a knee at Washington’s FedEx Field in their first appearance since their display last week prompted Vice President Pence to walk out of the game in Indianapolis.

Elsewhere across the nation, a small number of players in the 1 p.m. EDT games took a knee and in Minneapolis, the Green Bay Packers chose to continue to stand, with players linking arms, before the game against the Vikings. TV networks continue to cut away to commercials before the anthem, as was their practice on regular-season games before the whole controversy arose.

Eric Reid, who has taken over the team’s leadership on the matter since Kaepernick became a free agent, promises the 49ers will continue to be out front on the issue. He and his teammates have, he says, the backing of owner Jed York, who has “expressed very clearly that he wants to support us,” Reid said. “That he’s not going to force us to do anything. Speaking for our team, that’s what he’s told me explicitly.”

It’s a dicier issue for Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has said he believes that “everyone should stand for the national anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.” However, he has also stressed that players have the right to free speech. Among owners, there appears to be no unanimity of opinion. Jerry Jones has said that any member of his Dallas Cowboys who does not stand for the anthem will be benched and Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins feels the same way. (The Cowboys do not play this weekend.) However, Ross’s coach, Adam Gase, gave his players permission to remain in the tunnel during the anthem and Michael Thomas, Julian Thomas and Kenny Stils, who have long protested, remained there Sunday.

Forcing players to stand isn’t the answer, according to the Eagles’ Chris Long. A native of Charlottesville, he has endowed two scholarships at his high school alma mater in the wake of violence there in August and has stood with teammate Malcolm Jenkins as he has protested during the anthem.

“At the end of the day at this point, I think it’s important for the league to continue to try to investigate how they can provide a better vehicle for players to promote the things they’re trying to accomplish in the community as they relate to injustice, inequality and things they want to get done legislatively in their communities,” Long said. “I believe if the league put their best foot forward and provides the lifeblood of the league, which are the players, the opportunity to do this in a better vehicle than the national anthem, then you might see less people kneeling, but I don’t think mandating that players can’t kneel is gonna be the answer. I think you’ll see a messier situation.”

One answer suggested has been for players to stay in the locker room for the anthem, as they did before 2009 (except before the Super Bowl and on 9/11). But that won’t solve the chasm over this issue. Nate Boyer, the former Green Beret who played briefly in the NFL, suggested in an open letter published by ESPN that Kaepernick and President Trump sit down in a summit meeting of sorts to discuss their beliefs. He followed up on a letter he wrote a year ago and wrote how “much more hurt” he feels now at the divisions in the country.

“Not by [Kaepernick], not by where we’re at now with the protests, but by us,” he wrote. “Simply put, it seems like we just hate each other; and that is far more painful to me than any protest, or demonstration, or rally, or tweet.”

I just love how Liberals find people from groups whom they normally despise, like the Green Beret in the article above, to attempt to bolster their political ideology as being something more than a minority opinion.

As I have been watching and documenting the taking of a knee in protest by NFL Players during the playing and singing of our National Anthem before the games this season, a slow realization has come to me:

Modern American Liberals, or “The New Bolsheviks” as I have nicknamed them, are employing a time-worn Marxist Strategy, straight out of the playbook of “Coach” Vladimir Lenin: They are using the NFL Players’ Association as unwitting dupes, or useful idiots to advance their agenda and to destroy Professional Football, until recently a sport which they verbally dissected and ridiculed as something which only blood thirsty barbarians watched or played.

Don’t believe me?

Here is an excerpt from an op ed titled, “Is It Immoral to Watch the Super Bowl?” written for The Washington Post by Steve Almond and posted on January 24, 2014.

N.F.L. players are members of an elite fraternity that knowingly places self-sacrifice, valor and machismo above ethical or medical common sense. But most start out as kids with limited options. They may love football for its inherent virtues. But they also quickly come to see the game as a path to glory and riches. These rewards aren’t inherent. They arise from a culture of fandom that views players as valuable only so long as they can perform.

But if I’m completely honest about my misgivings, it’s not just that the N.F.L. is a negligent employer. It’s how our worship of the game has blinded us to its pathologies.

Pro sports are, by definition, monetized arenas for hypermasculinity. Football is nowhere near as overtly vicious as, say, boxing. But it is the one sport that most faithfully recreates our childhood fantasies of war as a winnable contest.

Over the past 12 years, as Americans have sought a distraction from the moral incoherence of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the game has served as a loyal and satisfying proxy. It has become an acceptable way of experiencing our savage impulses, the cultural lodestar when it comes to consuming violence. What differentiates it from the glut of bloody films and video games we devour is our awareness that the violence in football, and the toll of that violence, is real.

The struggle playing out in living rooms across the country is that of a civilian leisure class that has created, for its own entertainment, a caste of warriors too big and strong and fast to play a child’s game without grievously injuring one another. The very rules that govern our perceptions of them might well be applied to soldiers: Those who exhibit impulsive savagery on the field are heroes. Those who do so off the field are reviled monsters.

The condescension on display in this excerpt is representative of the way that “The Smartest People in the Room” actually feel about Professional Football.

Make no mistake about it.

The Will Smith movie “Concussion” in which he portrayed Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who fought against efforts by National Football League to suppress his research on the brain damage suffered by professional football players. was produced by Hollywood Liberals to show their “concern” for the game.

These same noble high-minded Liberals are now cheering those whom they previously looked down upon as barbarians and it is all because their disrespect for our flag and our national anthem and the division which they are exacerbating is forwarding Modern American Liberals’ Anti-Trump, Anti-America Agenda.

The protesting NFL Players who believe that they are “sticking it to The Man” are actually sticking it to their own pocketbooks to the tune of a 17% NFL Revenue Loss per week, while the same Liberals who are so vociferously defending their “First Amendment Rights” to protest on the job are laughing their keisters off because the NFL Players themselves are doing their dirty work for them and bankrupting the NFL, thus ending the “impulsive savagery on the field” which Modern American Liberals viewed with such disdain and contempt.

Just as George Soros and others who hate our Sovereign Nation are using the Modern American Liberals or “New Bolsheviks” to disrupt the presidency of Donald J. Trump and his plans to “Make America Great Again”, so are the Liberals using the NFL Players to advance their political agenda on National Television.

So, when the time comes that the NFL Owners have to start firing players, the players should not blame the fans who abandoned them.

They should blame the Liberals who supported them while they bit the hand which fed them.

A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection: Hope, Optimism, and an American President

October 15, 2017

untitled (182)

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. – Helen Keller

 

…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right-wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel.  But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person.  For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it.  There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior.  We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior.  It isn’t going to stop the greed.  If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money.  It’s just human nature.  We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws. 

As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is.  We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it.  So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic.  What else would we be if you lose optimism?” –  John Wayne

In keeping with this theme of hope and optimism, here is an excerpt from President Trump’s Speech which he delivered last Wednesday at the 2017 Voter Values Summit

…We are confronting rogue regimes from Iran to North Korea, and we are challenging the communist dictatorship of Cuba and the socialist oppression of Venezuela.  And we will not lift the sanctions on these repressive regimes until they restore political and religious freedom for their people.  (Applause.) All of these bad actors share a common enemy, the one force they cannot stop, the force deep within our souls, and that is the power of hope.  That is why, in addition to our great military might, our enemies truly fear the United States.  Because our people never lose faith, never give in, and always hope for a better tomorrow.

Last week, Melania and I were reminded of this in a powerful way when we traveled to Las Vegas.  We visited a hospital where some of the survivors were recovering from absolutely horrific wounds.  We met a young man named Brady Cook.  He’s 22 and a brand-new police officer.  That night was Brady’s second day in field training — his second day as a policeman, can you believe that?  But when the shooting began, he did not hesitate.  He acted with incredible courage, rushing into the hail of bullets, and he was badly shot in the shoulder.  

This is what Brady said: “I didn’t expect it, but it’s what I signed up for.  When stuff goes down, I want to be there to face evil and to protect the good, innocent people that need it.”  And here’s a young guy, great guy — and second day.  I said, Brady, don’t worry about it, it’s going to be easier from here.  (Laughter and applause.)  Brady is a hero, and he can’t wait to get back on the job. 

Several weeks before, when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, a local furniture storeowner, who’s known in Texas as “Mattress Mack,” decided he had to help.  When the rain began to flood the streets of the city, he sent out his furniture trucks to rescue the stranded.  He brought them back to his stores, and gave them food and a clean, dry place to stay, even if it meant ruining countless dollars’ worth of furniture.

As “Mattress Mack” put it, “My faith defines me, it’s who I am.”  “We can afford [the cost]…what we can’t afford” — we can’t — and he said this very strongly, “what we can’t afford is to cause people to lose hope.” 

In Brady and Mack, we see the strength of the American spirit.  This spirit of courage and compassion is all around us, every day.  It is the heartbeat of our great nation.  And despite certain coverage, that beat is stronger than it’s ever been before.  You see right through it.  (Applause.)  That beat is stronger than it’s ever been.  

We see this spirit in the men and women who selflessly enlist in our armed forces and, really, who go out and risk their lives for God and for country.  And we see it in the mothers and the fathers who get up at the crack of dawn; they work two jobs and sometimes three jobs.  They sacrifice every day for the furniture and — future of their children.  They have to go out.  They go out.  They work.  The future of their children is everything to them.  They put it before everything.  And they make sure that the future of their children has God involved in it.  So important to them.  (Applause.) 

We see it in the church communities that come together to care for one another, to pray for each other, and to stand strong with each other in times of need.

The people who grace our lives, and fill our homes, and build our communities are the true strength of our nation, and the greatest hope for a better tomorrow. 

As long as we have pride in our country, confidence in our future, and faith in our God, then America will prevail.

We will defeat every evil, overcome every threat, and meet every single challenge.  We will defend our faith and protect our traditions.  We will find the best in each other and in ourselves.  We will pass on the blessings of liberty, and the glories of God, to our children.  Our values will endure, our nation will thrive, our citizens will flourish, and our freedom will triumph.

Ever since President Donald J. Trump took office and for 8 long years under his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, there has been constant chorus provided by the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism, now known as Modern American Liberals, concerning how uncaring, how bigoted, how xenophobic, how narrow-minded, and how just plain awful and stupid average Americans are to continue to love this country, to honor its flag, and to continue to hold dear the America Legacy of Traditional Faith and Values.

For proof of this, please check out the majority of Americans’ reaction to the NFL Protests. Americans are abandoning the NFL in droves, causing the League’s revenue to drop by 17% per week.

The rugged individualism of previous generations of Americans flows through our veins. The American “Can-Do” Spirit has taken us from the bottom of the Ocean to the surface of the moon.

The overwhelming majority of Americans will stand by one another in times of crisis, as shown throughout the Fox News Coverage of both the hurricanes and the Las Vegas Massacre.

The intestinal fortitude that is our heritage as Americans…along with that Still, Small Voice which still resides in each and every one of us, will continue, I pray, to guide our nation, and spur us on, to stay vigilant and protect our American Freedom, just as my Parents’ Generation did, against the Axis of Evil.

This Sabbath, I’m thankful for Americans who are still making a difference.  Americans who still love God and country, and stand on principle with their feet planted on a Solid Rock, and not on shifting sands.

And I am thankful to have an optimistic, hopeful American President who recognizes that it is the strength of average Americans, not the never-ending negativism and pandering of a minority in this Sovereign Nation, which makes America great.

They are the reason we remain, in spite of all that has befallen us in the last 8 years and 9 months, the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

They are also the reason that together, we are about to Make America Great Again.

Until He Comes,

The Assimilation of the NFL by the “New Borg” Continues as the Cowboys Take a Knee and Villanueva Apologizes

September 26, 2017

A-Knee-600a-LI

If you are a Star Trek Fan, you already know who “The Borg” are.

For those of you who have never heard of them, the Borg are an alien manufactured “race” that appear as “bad guys” in the Star Trek franchise. The Borg are a seemingly endless attack force of “drones”, or cybernetic organisms who are linked together in a hive mind called “the Collective”, or “the Hive”. The Borg acquire through the means of force the technology and knowledge of other alien species to the Collective via a process of “assimilation”. They forcibly transform individuals into drones by violently implanting microscopic machines, or nanoprobes, into their bodies while augmenting them with cybernetic components. The Borg’s ultimate goal is “achieving perfection”.

Why did I begin my post with Star Trek Lore?

Because, boys and girls, America is now fighting our own war with a “New Borg”…

And they are assimilating everyone and every American Institution in their path.

Their current target for assimilation is the NFL.

And, according to the already-assimilated Main Stream Media, they have succeeded.

Per The New York Times

The image was striking — several owners of N.F.L. teams locking arms with their players on the sidelines Sunday in a dramatic statement of defiance to a president who ridiculed their sport and condemned players for refusing to stand during the national anthem as a protest against racism.

And then on Monday night, the league’s most prominent owner knelt with his entire team.

Beyond the appearance of unity, though, is a far different reality: The owners have done little to support players who protest to fight social injustice. A few owners have told their players that kneeling for the anthem is inappropriate.

The owners by and large are a white, conservative group of billionaires, several of them big-dollar donors to President Trump. They have generally discouraged their players, about three quarters of whom are African-American, from anything that overshadows throwing passes and making tackles.

These are the same owners who allowed junk science produced by league-sponsored doctors to paper over the growing scientific consensus that repeated head hits are linked to long-term brain damage. They have warred repeatedly, aggressively and publicly with players over labor issues.

And as for Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback who inspired the anthem protests by kneeling in order to raise awareness about racial oppression and police brutality toward African-Americans, no owner has deemed him worthy of job, despite widespread handicapping that, while not in his prime, he certainly still is of a caliber to play.

It is certainly true that some owners, most notably Arthur M. Blank of the Atlanta Falcons and Stephen M. Ross of the Miami Dolphins, have tried through charitable work to address the many thorny problems around racism, poverty and policing. It took a rebuke from Mr. Trump to compel many of them to choose between remaining silent or publicly siding with the players.

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, keeping with his preference for dramatic flourishes, went further than any other owner when he knelt with his team before the national anthem for his team’s game with the Cardinals in Glendale, Ariz. Before Monday, Jones had been among the most vocal owners in saying he preferred that his players stand for the anthem.

But the public demonstration of unity and support may be short-lived.

While it is too early to know if the protests will continue, and in what form, Shahid Khan, the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars and on Sunday the first owner to be seen linking arms with his players on the sidelines, has said he would not continue the practice in the coming weeks.

“I’m not a crusader, but this was a Rosa Parks moment for the Jaguars,” he said. “I do not plan any future sideline appearances.”

The owners’ decision to go with the players at least this time struck some as a fallback to protecting the league brand, embodied in its ubiquitous shield emblem with the American flag motif.

“This issue is about protecting the shield,” said Andy Dolich, a former N.F.L. team executive. “There’s a subliminal dollar sign in that shield, so it is fair to be cynical” about the owners’ motives.

League executives, however, said they had minimal involvement in the owners’ or players’ actions.

And, if you haven’t hurled yet, this should bring your last meal up…

The only member of the Pittsburgh Steelers to take the field for the anthem now says he regrets his actions and apologized to his teammates and coach Monday. Alejandro Villanueva, a Steelers lineman and U.S. Army veteran, was pictured standing alone before Sunday’s game during the national anthem while the rest of the team refused to take the field in protest. His stand has made his jersey one of the top sellers in the NFL.

“Unfortunately I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally,” Villanueva said in a press conference Monday. “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself I feel embarrassed.”

The team had apparently agreed Saturday evening to stay in the tunnel, but Villanueva made a last-minute decision Sunday to get a look at the flag, telling only the team leaders. However, when the anthem started with him alone, outside the tunnel, he said it would have “looked extremely bad” to walk back to his teammates, according to ESPN.

He apologized for breaking ranks without giving others the opportunity to join him.

“When everybody sees a picture of me standing by myself, everybody thinks the team and the Steelers are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong,” Villanueva said. “The entire team would have been out there with me, even the ones who wanted to take a knee would have been there with me.”

Villanueva said his team would have joined him if they had known about the “extreme circumstances” he was going through before the game. Villanueva said he had soldiers and wounded veterans texting him to make sure he would take the field. He said the fact that they were about to play at Soldier Field also influenced him.

According to WPXI, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and defensive lineman Cam Heyward wanted to go with him in solidarity, but were blocked by congestion in the tunnel before the anthem. Villanueva confirmed that report Monday, according to the station.

Villanueva, who has been celebrated widely by those who aren’t in favor of NFL players kneeling in protest, said he feels bad that his action broke an appearance of unity among the Steelers.

“I’ve made the Steelers look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only,” Villanueva said. He also apologized to coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the team.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

Thanks to a Previous Imperious Presidency, we are suffering under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority is not based on color, rather, it is one based on political ideology and self-interest.

If this  minority, including the Main Stream Media, had gotten their wish, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, would have been elected President of our country, and what we are witnessing on our streets, on our college campuses, and now on our Professional Football Stadiums, would not be happening.

Unfortunately, I believe that we are experiencing only the opening rounds of a long fight, the fascist tyranny which the poor losers of a political minority are now attacking our nation with will not only continue, it will EXPAND.

As the past several years have shown, this minority, buoyed by money from their “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, are willing to shut down anyone who threatens “what they’ve got” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices, such as heavily weighted push polls, and a sycophantic totally bought and paid for Main Stream Media helping them to promote and espouse a belief system, which we, as a country, have gone to war against in the past.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II,  now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, judicial activism, and FAR Left-sponsored and organized Political Activists.

And, it’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our American Way of Life, our History, and our Institutions which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

In other words, just like the fictional Borg, this New Borg WILL assimilate you or else you will be branded a racist and a “fascist”, which, in itself, is an extremely sick bit of irony.

I have no doubt that Villanueva, the Former Army Ranger who stood out in that tunnel with his hand over his heart during our national anthem last Sunday, was lectured to the point of assimilation by his coach, his teammates, and perhaps even the Team Ownership.

In Star Trek, there was a “Borg Queen”, who was controlling the “Hive-Mind”. Now, you probably think that I will tell you that Roger Goodell is the “Borg King” in this situation. However, I believe that he is just another drone, taking orders from the Liberal Hierarchy in Washington, D.C., where his old friend, Former President Barack Hussein Obama lives.

There is another name that I could mention. However, you have probably thought of a certain puppet master’s name, already.

The saving grace in this situation is the indomitable will of average Americans, who showed how they felt about the failed political ideology behind the NFL Protests went they elected Donald J Trump as our 45th President.

That conviction and strength of will among average Americans has not changed, as shown through the very public backlash against the NFL, which includes a diminishing income for the league.

Just like those who have gone on before us, average Americans will continue to fight fascism and the failed political ideology that it always brings with it.

We will continue to “rage against the dying of the light”.

And, the Star Spangled Banner will still wave,

O’er the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Hollywood Vs. America: The 2017 Emmy Awards…Where Self-Adulation, Condescension, and Far Left Politics Took the Place of Entertainment

September 18, 2017

Emmy-2017-musical

Overestimation of their own intelligence and underestimation of the intelligence and backbone of average Americans, here in America’s Heartland, is what cost Modern American Liberals the White House and a Congressional Majority.

You would think that they would be trying to suck up to average Americans, instead of didactically instructing us as to what we MUST believe.

Because when they do that, it always backfires.

Please reference November 8th, 2016. – kingjester, March 6, 2017

FoxNews.com ran a live blog of the 2017 Emmy Awards last night, during which they reported that

Everyone expected the smattering of stars at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards to get political, and host Stephen Colbert kicked things off in a big way. The late-night host devoted a large portion of his opening monologue to taking digs at Donald Trump.

The host began the night with a pre-taped song-and-dance number, packed with cameos from stars, before taking the live stage to give his opener. Things started off tame, with jokes about “Game of Thrones” not being eligible to win this year and the self-congratulatory nature of the awards, but it didn’t take long for the jokes about the president to come.

“The industry is booming. There were 450 original scripted shows this year,” he said. “Of course, there’s no way anyone could watch that much TV, other than the president, who seems to have a lot of time for that sort of thing.”

He then looked directly to camera and addressed Trump.

“Hello sir, thank you for joining us. Looking forward to the tweets.”

“We know that the biggest TV star of the last year is Donald Trump,” he said. “And however you feel about the president, and you do feel about the president, you can’t deny that every show is influenced by Donald Trump in some way. Every late night show, obviously, ‘House of Cards,’ the new season of ‘American Horror Story’ and, of course, next year’s Latin Grammys, hosted by Joe Arpaio.”

The host was referencing the recent controversial pardon of the Arizona Sheriff by the president. Next, Colbert turned things back toward the show, mentioning the fact that the president was nominated for multiple Emmy Awards for “Celebrity Apprentice” in the past but never won.

“Why didn’t you give him an Emmy? I tell you this, if he had won an Emmy, I bet he wouldn’t have run for president. So, in a way, this is all your fault.” he said, gesturing to the whole room. “I thought you people loved morally compromised anti-heroes! You love Walter White, he’s just Walter much-whiter. And he never forgave you and he never will. The president complained repeatedly that the Emmys are rigged.”

He then segwayed into a clip from the presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton, where she criticized him for saying the Emmys were rigged and the then-candidate interrupted to say that he should have won.

“But he didn’t, because unlike the presidency, Emmys go to the winner of the popular vote.”

Despite the applause his remarks received, Colbert acknowledged that the room full of celebrities wasn’t necessarily the toughest crowd to tell anti-Trump jokes.

Colbert closed out his politics-riddled monologue with a surprise cameo featuring former Press Secretary to the Trump administration Sean Spicer. Colbert pretended to lament that he was unsure how big the viewing audience is, and got some help from Spicer.

“This will be the largest audience to witness and Emmys, period,” Spicer said emphatically. “Both in person and around the world.”

The next jab at Trump came from Alec Baldwin whose impersonations of Trump have propelled “SNL” to its best season in years, bringing in viewers and also Emmy glory. Baldwin’s win is the third win for “Saturday Night Live” during Sunday’s show.

“I suppose I should say at long last Mr. President, here is your Emmy.”

He went on to joke that putting on the orange wig is the best birth control for men given he and his wife didn’t have a baby during the election year. He left his speech with some final words about the arts during turbulent political times that seemed pointed directly at the president.

“When you die, you don’t remember a bill that Congress passed or a decision the Supreme Court made or an address made by the president. You remember a song, you remember a line from a movie, you remember a play, you remember a book, a painting, a poem. What we do is important and for all of you out there in motion pictures and television, don’t stop doing what you’redoing, the audience is counting on you.”The next stars to take a shot at the president was “Grace and Frankie” co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. Taking the stage to announce the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie with Dolly Parton, the actresses joked that the enemy in their 1980 film “9 to 5” was a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” and said that they’re still fighting one in 2017.

First off, what in the world is the matter with the Producers of the Emmy Awards?

Couldn’t they find someone who is actually entertaining to host the show?

Or, someone who actually knows that America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Third World Country, where our leader is chosen by mob rule?

I stopped watching awards shows, such as the Emmys, years ago, as they did indeed become more and more of a Sounding Board for Far Left Political Opinion and less of a showcase of the brightest and best in their respective entertainment industries.

Those “celebrities” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of the biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.

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

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

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

This meltdown which promises to last way past Inauguration Day, is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.

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

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

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

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

Average Americans continue to be treated as subhuman by the self-proclaimed “Smartest People in the Room”.

These “spoiled brats”, such as those seen on the Emmy Awards last night, still weeping and wailing in the throes of self-afflicted agony over the miserable failure of Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on reinstating. restoring, and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as their “Fellow Travelers” attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to block President Donald J. Trump’s mandate which he was given by the average Americans who elected him the 45th President of the United States of America.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” funded by “non-profit” organizations, who are in turn funded by Former Nazi Sympathizer and Billionaire George Soros, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us out here in the Heartland of America, between the East and Left Coasts, the right, including President Donald J. Trump, the man whom the “Dancing Monkeys” of the Television Industry attempted to vilify last night, to speak our minds and be heard.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th, 2016, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

The fact is, a majority of those working in the Entertainment Industry are Liberal in their Political Ideology…at least, it is evident that the most vocal of them are.

Therefore, please allow me in summation, to address the Special Snowflakes of the Glitterati…

To those of you in Tinsel Town who believe that your ability to stand of a piece of tape on a set, mug for the camera, and read lines on a cue card or even memorize a few of them, somehow gives you the authority to insult, demean, and act superior to those of us here in the Heartland who were responsible for the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America…HERE’S A REALITY CHECK FOR YOU:

Average Americans, such as myself and my readers, really don’t give a tinker’s damn about your opinions of our intelligence or the Citizen Statesman whom we put into the Oval Office.

There is a reason why those of us who actually watch TV are spending more and more time on channels such as Grit, the Inspiration Channel, and MeTV.:

The majority of modern television programs STINK ON ICE.

We would rather watch the old television programs which were actually entertaining…shows like Walker, Texas Ranger, The Virginian, Good Times, The Golden Girls…and even Lassie.

Come to think of it…when compared to y’all…Lassie was a better actor.

Hurricane Irma, President Trump, and Twitter Trolls…Oh, My!: The Great KJ Twitter War

September 11, 2017

With-Hate-600-LI

Happy Monday, boys and girls!

Before I get started, please know that the thoughts and prayers of the majority of Americans are with all who have been and continue to be in the path of Hurricane Irma.

I wrote the word “majority” for a reason.

Which brings us to the subject of my post for today.

Yesterday, I was stuck at home, recuperating from Double Pink Eye and a sore throat to go with it, which I had been battling since last Tuesday.

Anyway, I was unable to attend 9:00 a.m. Church Service with my bride, have early lunch with our friends, and then go work my 6 hour shift in the afternoon, as I do every Sunday.

So, while sitting in my recliner watching Shep Smith anchor Fox News’ coverage of Hurricane Irma, I started checking out President Trump’s Tweets about the dangerous storm, which he had just posted.

Sure enough, Liberal Trolls began attacking the President per usual.

I guess neither rain nor sleet nor snow nor natural disaster shall keep those trolls and bots from their “appointed rounds”…paid and unpaid.

A while back, my longtime friend and supporter, Backwoods Conservative, whom I have known since our days together at Michelle Malkin’s HotAir.com, said that when I first started writing 7 and 1/2 years ago, he loved to watch me “have an out-of-body experience” and decimate the trolls who would respond to my posts.

Well, ol’ buddy, you would have loved yesterday.

I snapped.

Here are some examples…

Tweets 91017 for Blog

Checking my Twitter Account as I am writing this, it is 9:48 p.m. Central and I have a message which reads

Your Tweets earned 33.2K impressions over this 1 day period.

I believe that I may have struck a nerve or two.

Of course, I was having a big ol’ time playing with all of those basement-dwelling trolls, yesterday.

Those of you who have read my posts for a while have probably figured out that I have a very clear-cut sense of right and wrong and of what is appropriate and inappropriate.

Well, my mother always said that I had a long fuse which led to a case of dynamite.

Evidently, yesterday, with their selfish disregard for those in the path of Hurricane Irma, and President Trump’s efforts on their behalf, those Liberals who troll President Trump’s Tweets every single day of their miserable lives, lit my fuse and burnt it to the end.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled those useless, ungrateful spoiled brats, I would have.

Those idiots who troll the President’s Tweets every single day are yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, and the black-robed fascists of Antifa, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we bore witness during Obama’s 8 years, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by him and his Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture on the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like the vile woman whom they are still throwing a temper tantrum over, Hillary Clinton herself, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as paid and unpaid protestors still protest Trump’s Election, in an attempt to stifle Free Speech and to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, in a vain attempt to somehow force Donald J. Trump out of office.

If you have ever attempted to debate a Liberal on a Facebook Political Page, a Political Website, or Twitter, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing but Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, promising a continuance of Barack Hussein Obama’s own “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has inspired these self-absorbed Modern American Liberals, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

That is why the Electoral College, which these Liberals are still whining about in their grief over losing the presidency, was created.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including President Trump, and even little ol’ me, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, like Antifa beating Americans who dare to oppose them, or like Liberal College Students shouting down and rioting over Conservative Speakers, for the expressed purpose of denying Conservatives their First Amendment Rights.

It also allows ungrateful NFL Players, making millions of dollars to disrespect our Sovereign Nation and those who died for our flag to refuse to stand during our National Anthem.

Our Constitution, in fact, allowed Failed Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of America as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

Or course, she paid the price for alienating average Americans when she lost the presidency to Donald J. Trump.

It is that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, which also gives me the right to label the Self-entitlement-driven condescending Political Ideology of Modern American Liberals, such as I did battle with on Twitter yesterday, for what it actually is:

“INTOLERANCE”.

Southern Poverty Law Center Names Well-Known Christian Organization an “Active Hate Group”. Say What??? (A KJ Analysis)

August 25, 2017

RTR5XQ8

“In our polarized times, radicals use the SPLC’s hate-group designations to justify violence. Politicians and corporations use the designation to marginalize and punish good men and women. Not long ago the Family Research Council narrowly avoided mass murder when a man tried to attack its headquarters. He was inspired in part by the SPLC’s hate-group designation, and his plan was to shoot FRC employees and stuff Chick-fil-A sandwiches into their dead, bleeding mouths.” – David French, Senior Writer, National Review, July 13, 2017

Foxnews.com reports that

A prominent evangelical ministry has filed a federal lawsuit against the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), saying it defamed the Christian organization as an “active hate group” because it endorses the biblical view of homosexuality.

The clash marks the latest chapter in a growing feud between those who embrace historic monotheistic beliefs, whether Christian, Jewish or Muslim, and progressive activists who have begun targeting mainstream Christian groups that hold traditional beliefs about sex and other issues. 

Officials of the D. James Kennedy Ministries, based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., accuse the SPLC of deceptive practices, saying that it wrongly asserts that some organizations breed or fuel hate because of their religious positions on such things as same-sex marriage and other social issues.

“It’s completely disingenuous to tag D. James Kennedy Ministries as a hate group alongside the KKK and neo-Nazis,” Kennedy Ministries spokesman John Rabe said to Fox News. “We desire all people, with no exceptions, to receive the love of Christ and his forgiveness and healing. We unequivocally condemn violence, and we hate no one.”

“It’s ridiculous for the SPLC to falsely tag evangelical Christian ministries as ‘hate groups’ simply for upholding the 2,000-year-old Christian consensus on marriage and sexuality,” Rabe said. “It’s nothing more than an attempt to bulldoze over those who disagree with them, and it has a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion in a nation built on that. We decided not to let their falsehoods stand.”

Kennedy Ministries filed the lawsuit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Montgomery, Ala., where the SPLC is headquartered.

The SPLC did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

SPLC critics say its original mission was a commendable one, setting out in 1971 to fight the Ku Klux Klan. The SPLC went after several Klan leaders, driving them into bankruptcy after court losses.

But increasingly, especially since Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election, both liberals and conservatives say that SPLC has grown overzealous – bringing down its huge and very high-profile “hate-group” hammer on not just people and organizations that actually encourage hate and violence against certain groups, but also on those who simply don’t fall in line with liberal positions on hot-button social issues.

“They deserve praise because they used the law to hurt the Klan — a lot,” said Scott Walter, president of Capital Research Center, a conservative think tank that monitors nonprofits. “But as often happens in the charity world, it concocts new ways to keep donations flowing.”

“Hate is the issue here,” Walter said. “When you talk about hate groups, you’re talking about a group that is a threat because of its violent tendencies and racism. If you go up to somebody on the street and ask ‘What is a hate group?’ that is what they would take it to mean.”

“It’s an outrageous lie that some mainstream Christian group is a threat in terms of violence and racism,” Walter said.

In a statement after the lawsuit was filed, the Kennedy Ministries president wrote: “These false and illegal characterizations have a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion and on religious free speech for all people of faith. After having given the SPLC an opportunity to retract, we have undertaken this legal action, seeking a trial by a jury of our peers, to preserve our own rights under the law and to defend the religious free speech rights of all Americans.”

So, just who is this bunch of foaming-at-the-mouth, snot-nosed Liberals known as the SPLC?

Per discoverthenetworks.org

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was founded in 1971 by two young Alabama lawyers, 35-year-old Morris Dees and 28-year-old Joseph Levin, Jr. The latter served as the Center’s legal director from 1971-76, but it was Dees who would emerge as the long-term “face” of the organization. A leftist who views the U.S. as an irredeemably racist nation, Dees, upon launching SPLC, joined forces with an African American who would serve as a perfect complement to him ideologically—the civil-rights activist Julian Bond.

Identifying itself as a “nonprofit civil rights organization” committed to “fighting hate and bigotry” while “seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of society,” SPLC describes the United States as a country “seething” with “racial violence” and “intolerance against those who are different.” “Hate in America is a dreadful, daily constant,” says the Center, and violent crimes against members of minority groups like blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, and Arabs/Muslims “are not isolated incidents,” but rather, “eruptions of a nation’s intolerance.” To combat this epidemic of “bigotry,” SPLC dedicates itself to “tracking and exposing” the activities of “hate groups and other extremists throughout the United States.” Specifically, the Center’s “Hate & Extremism” initiative publishes its findings in SPLC’s Hatewatch blog and in its quarterly journal, the Intelligence Report, which claims to be “the nation’s preeminent periodical monitoring the radical right in the U.S.”

SPLC first gained widespread national recognition in 1987, its seventeenth year of activity, by winning a $7 million verdict in a civil lawsuit against the United Klans of America (UKA) for the role that organization had played in the death of a black Alabama teenager. By the time that lawsuit was filed, UKA was already a destitute, impotent, disintegrating entity that virtually all white Americans had emphatically rejected; the SPLC suit merely drove the final nail into the UKA coffin. SPLC boasts that it has likewise won “crushing jury verdicts” that effectively shut down groups like the White Aryan Resistance (with a $12 million judgment in 1991), the White Patriot Party militia, and the Aryan Nations (with a $6.5 million judgment in 2001).

This has been SPLC’s modus operandi since its inception: to initiate “innovative lawsuits” against prominent hate groups for crimes that their individual members commit. In these suits, declares Morris Dees proudly, “We absolutely take no prisoners. When we get into a legal fight we go all the way.” The leftist writer Ken Silverstein, who in 2000 wrote a penetrating exposé of SPLC for Harper’s magazine, notes that the targets of these suits tend to be “mediagenic villains” who are “eager to show off their swastikas for the news cameras.” As Dees and SPLC well understand, such figures stand the best chance of triggering an emotional public response that translates, in turn, into financial contributions from donors eager to combat the perceived threat.

Inflating the Numbers on “Hate”

As of 2016, SPLC identified 892 active “hate groups” in the United States. Asserting that the vast majority of such organizations are “right wing,” the Center says they include “the Ku Klux Klan,” “the neo-Nazi movement,” “neo-Confederates,” “racist skinheads,” “antigovernment militias,” “Christian Identity adherents,” and a variety of “anti-immigrant,” “anti-LGBT,” “anti-Muslim,” and “alternative Right” organizations. While also identifying a tiny smattering of black separatist entities as hate groups, SPLC takes pains to point out that black organizations must be judged by a different standard than their white counterparts, because “much black racism in America is, at least in part, a response to centuries of white racism.” SPLC contends that from 2000 to 2012, the number of hate groups in the U.S. increased by 67%—a surge allegedly “fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of non-white immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president”—i.e., Barack Obama. In other words, white Americans’ reflexive bigotry allegedly triggered a host of hate-filled responses to the increased political and cultural influence wielded by nonwhites. And America’s racists, by SPLC’s calculus, are almost unanimously conservatives—as evidenced by the caption featured in the “Hatewatch” section of SPLC’s website: “Hatewatch monitors and exposes the activities of the American radical right.” The radical left gets no mention at all.

 

Before I get started with my analysis, please allow me this disclaimer:

I am a member of a Contemporary Evangelical Church, which I attend regularly, before I go to work on Sunday.

My faith is not marginal. I stand on The Solid Rock, not shifting sands.

America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Theocracy. And, as such, Americans, including the 75% of us who declare that Jesus Christ is our Personal Savior, must each make our own individual choice as to whom would best represent us as the Leader of the Free World, based upon both logic and the Spiritual Gift of Discernment.

Logic dictated that I vote on November 8, 2016 for someone who would keep my family, my friends, and my country safe from the murderous barbarians that are at our gates. It also drove me to choose someone who actually had a chance to defeat the Democrat Candidate, the representative of the political party whose sitting President at the time had driven this Sovereign Nation straight down the Highway to Hell, over the last seven years.

Judging from the Republican Primaries’ outcome, and the overflowing crowds at his Campaign Rallies that the MSM, to this day, refuses to acknowledge, the overwhelming majority of voters Between the coasts believed that candidate to be Donald J. Trump.

During the Republican Primary Season, I was called everything but “a Child of God”, simply because I wrote factual posts about Donald J. Trump and stated that I would pencil in the bubble beside his name as my choice to fill the Office of President of the United States of America.

According to Modern American Liberals, like the SPLC, who are still in the those of a National Temper Tantrum over Hillary Clinton’s loss, Bible-believing Christians are a “Hate Group”

I beg to differ.

Christianity is the faith of the overwhelming majority of Americans.

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

There was a time when Family Historical Records, such as births and deaths, were recorded in the Family Bible

In fact, SPLC, our Legal System was built on Judeo-Christian Principles.

To deny that fact is to attempt to rewrite history.

There is no such codicil in the Constitution of the United States of America as “The Separation of Church and State”.

Per the website, usconsitution.net,

One of the founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, is directly responsible for giving us this phrase. In his 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, then-President Jefferson used the phrase — it was probably not the first time, but it is the most memorable one. He said:

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his god, [the people, in the 1st Amendment,] declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.

Jefferson did not have a hand in the authoring of the Constitution, nor of the 1st Amendment, but he was an outspoken proponent of the separation of church and state, going back to his time as a legislator in Virginia. In 1785, Jefferson drafted a bill that was designed to quash an attempt by some to provide taxes for the purpose of furthering religious education. He wrote that such support for religion was counter to a natural right of man:

… no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.

Jefferson’s act was passed, though not without some difficulty, in Virginia. Eyler Robert Coates wrote that the act was copied in the acts or constitutions of several states, either in words or in concepts. Jefferson himself was in France by the time word of the act reached Europe, and he wrote back to America that his act was well-thought of and admired.

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

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

But, I digress…

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

To which I personally answer, with two quotes from the Bible,

So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. – Matthew 27:5 (NIV)

…”Go and do likewise.” – Luke 10:37 (NIV)

And, boys and girls, that is MY right as an American.

For decades, American churches, like the black congregations in my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, have invited local politicians to speak from their pulpits. While Modern American Liberals have had conniption fits over white churches around the country doing the same thing, they have not said a mumblin’ word about the actions of a constituency which historically votes Democratic.

Imagine that.

The Johnson Amendment was a violation of Christian Americans’ Constitutional Rights to begin with, whose selective enforcement has been an intentional act of self-serving hypocrisy by the Democratic Party.

The 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, was exactly right in what he told a meeting of Evangelical Christians during the Presidential Campaign that:

They took away the voice of people that want to see good things happen. It’s not like they took away a bad voice, an evil voice. They took away a voice.

Last November that voice was heard loud and clear.

And now, just like the rest of their desperate Liberal Brethren and Sisters, the Southern Poverty Law Center is trying to bring down President Trump and his Base, including Evangelicals like myself, by accusing us of ‘HATRED, VIOLENCE, AND RAAACISM” because “Identity Politics” worked so well (/sarc) when they used it during the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton.

One would have thought that the “Smartest People in the Room” would have learned from their defeat.

While Democrats Play “Social Justice Warriors”, They Destroy Any Chance of Gaining Back the White House. “It’s the Economy, Stupid.” (A KJ Analysis)

August 19, 2017

Wash-Bust-600-CDN

This past week, I have been looking at various aspects of the fallout from the riot at Charlottesville, VA last Saturday, which renewed a ISIS-like mission among Modern American Liberals, including the Democratic Party, to rid America of Confederate Monuments, which “offend” them.

There is one problem with that: The Democrats are torqueing off the very Americans who are the key to getting them back into power in Washington, DC.

According to apnews.com,

President Donald Trump’s widely criticized response to white supremacist violence in Virginia has left Democrats in a quandary: how to seize the moral high ground without getting sucked into a politically perilous culture war. Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming “both sides” for deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, more recently, for defending Confederate monuments.

But the party faces a complex task: While addressing race and history in ways that reflect the party’s values, Democrats also need to focus on issues like jobs and the economy that resonate with a wider range of voters, including white independents, ahead of the 2018 midterm election.

The party has been looking to answer Trump’s populism by crafting its own middle-class brand, yet Democratic leaders across multiple states now are pushing to take down Old South monuments like the one that ostensibly sparked the events in Charlottesville, and three rank-and-file House Democrats want to pursue a congressional censure of the president.

In interviews this week before his resignation was announced Friday, White House strategist Steve Bannon gleefully suggested Democrats are falling into a trap.

“I want them to talk about racism every day,” Bannon told The American Prospect, a liberal magazine. “If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

Trump himself has called Confederate memorials, most of them actually erected decades after the Civil War, “beautiful statues” that reflect “our nation’s history and culture.”

Polls taken after last weekend’s violence offer some evidence backing Bannon’s and Trump’s view. While polls found widespread disgust with white supremacists, a Marist Poll for NPR and PBS found that just 27 percent of adults queried believe Confederate monuments “should be removed because they are offensive.” About two out of three white and Latino respondents said they should remain, as did 44 percent of black respondents.

Andrew Young, a Democrat, civil rights leader and former U.N. ambassador, warned this week that the monuments are “a distraction.” He told reporters in Atlanta it is “too costly to refight the Civil War.”

Boyd Brown of South Carolina, a former state lawmaker and onetime member of the Democratic National Committee, says Democrats are right to oppose Confederate monuments and criticize Trump’s remarks. “He tweets something crazy, we react — and we’re not wrong,” Brown said. But “we have to talk about a lack of jobs and education in poor districts, voter suppression laws. Ask why Medicaid funding is always the target. And then explain how all those things hurt more than just African-Americans.”

Trump upset Democrat Hillary Clinton on the strength of his support from white voters, particularly working-class whites who possessed a combination of economic frustration and racial resentments salved by Trump’s promises of immigration controls, law-and-order and a booming economy.

Clinton, meanwhile, concentrated so much on Trump’s deficiencies and outlandish statements that her own policy proposals received less attention. That’s a problem that has beset Trump rivals since he first declared his candidacy: All the attention focused on Trump — even unflattering stories — prevent them from getting out their own messages.

Brian Fallon, who was spokesman for Clinton’s campaign, said Democrats shouldn’t let that happen after Charlottesville.

“As horrifying as what the president has said is, you have to have an affirmative agenda,” he said.

Still, Fallon praised Democratic efforts to keep Trump and Republicans on the defensive over the president’s response — even if it doesn’t help them politically.

“Sometimes it’s important to take a stand regardless of the electoral impacts,” he said, noting that Clinton delivered a speech last year warning of white nationalists’ rise alongside Trump’s campaign.

Democrats have tried various tactics to press the Charlottesville issue. Besides the push to censure Trump and remove monuments, they are planning voter organization drives across the United States.

Andrew Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, and candidate for governor, is among the Democrats calling for monuments to be moved to museums or cemeteries.

Gillum, who is black, says Democrats must argue “these monuments have been weaponized. We can’t pretend that didn’t happen.”

The issue is reminiscent of South Carolina’s decision to remove the Confederate battle flag from statehouse grounds in 2015 after a white gunman killed nine people at a historic black church in Charleston. Then-Gov. Nikki Haley, a Republican who is now Trump’s United Nations ambassador, declared the flag untenably divisive after the wide distribution of photos showing the killer clutching it.

“She was focused on leading the state through a grieving process so it could begin healing,” recalls Rob Godfrey, one of her top aides at the time.

But Godfrey notes Haley never considered jettisoning other Old South relics.

“That was going to drive people apart,” Godfrey says.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Party, which is being run by the Far Left, is playing.

Meanwhile, President Trump is hard at work trying to grow out economy by stimulating job growth. However, there are still well over 9 million Americans who are no longer a part of America’s Work Force.

Who are these people?

They are average Americans like you and me, who, in their very real despair, have given up trying to find a job, choosing instead to work under the radar as handymen or flea market vendors. some not even working at all, sitting at home and letting Uncle Sugar take care of them.

When you ask Liberals about this unacceptable situation, they will respond to you with charts and graphs designed to buttress their opinion that Former President Obama actually moved America’s Stagnant Economy forward.

And, if that argument doesn’t work, their pre-programmed response is

But…but…Booosh!!!

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Ronald Reagan did, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

But, I digress…

Make no mistake, granting amnesty to millions of unskilled, underage illegal aliens would have done and still would do nothing for the health of our economy.

This action would simply provide future voters for the Democrat Party, which is now, as I wrote earlier, firmly in the control of the Far Left.

A popular Liberal Defense that was going around during Obama’s Presidency was the claim that Reagan actually had a bigger Federal Government than Obama.

The funny part is: It’s true.

It was larger because President Reagan, through his sound Economic Policy, actually increased tax revenues.

American Production rose, therefore,  TAX REVENUES INCREASED.

Yes, “Trickle-Down Economics, “trickled up”, allowing for a well-funded, strong American Military and Administration.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never  believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy.  American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

The current state of the Shining City Upon a Hill can be summarized thusly:

America was formed by men seeking FREEDOM. She grew and prospered because of an indomitable will and spirit forged through the Refiner’s Fire, guided by the common-sense words, inscribed in our Constitution, and administered through a Constitutional Republic. Our nation’s largesse and strength comes through the actions and character of her citizens, not through the usurpation of power by professional politicians, who have long since lost touch with their constituency.

Obama’s attempt to “radically change” our nation into a Third World Barrio was met with resistance, not because of professional politicians, but, because of the defiance of the American People, who love their country.

It was this Defiant Spirit which caused Americans to elect American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.

It was also on display in the Marist Poll mentioned above.

Rest assured, President Trump recognizes whom he owes his Presidency to.

Conversely, the Democrats view us as “piggy banks” through which to fund their Social Justice Crusades.

On November 8th, we proved that America’s Heritage of God and Country is still alive and well in the hearts and minds of the overwhelming majority of the citizens in this country, even those who have dropped out of the workforce.

A President’s role, if he wants to be viewed positively as a world leader, is to work to restore America to a position of strength, both in foreign and domestic policy.

President Trump understands the mandate that he has been given and has been very busy in the last 7 1/2 months serving Americans by making deals to bring back jobs to employ Americans, which will help to stimulate the economy, which in turn will help to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN .

He understands that it all starts with the Engine That Drives Our Country.

And, President-elect Trump already has his hand on the throttle.

Oh…and one more thing…

The Russians did not stop Hillary from continuing Obama’s “Legacy”.

FED UP AVERAGE AMERICANS DID!!!

So, keep torqueing us off, Democrats.

You will never get back into power in Washington, DC.

Thank God.

Until He Comes,
