Lebron James vs Fox News

After a couple of years spewing a bunch of hate at Donald Trump, somebody finally told Lebron James to shut up and dribble after he and Kevin Durant went off on another tangent attacking Trump the other night. Now as a private citizen Lebron James and Durant has a right to criticize the President if he disagrees with his policies, but in none of his rants against President Trump has he ever articulated the specific policies that he disagrees with, and why he disagrees. His rants have been nothing but a series incoherent drivel completely void of any substance, but chock full of emotional outbursts. In typical lefty Democratic fashion, he throws  out insults, engages in name calling, and personally attacks those with whom he disagrees. He has called the President a bum, and directed other insults at him over time. Recently, after going into the Presidents head, reading his mind, and seeing what is in his heart, he declared with his trademark eloquence; the President “does not give a f*** about the people.” So after constantly spewing insults at the President, conservative commentator and Fox News host Laura Ingram called him out on his hateful diatribes and ignorant fulminations. She also made fun of his terrible grammar and implied that he is just a dumb jock talking about stuff he does not know anything about or understands. All hell broke loose after that, and white liberals who see themselves as the defenders of any black person who agrees with their ideology came out in defense of the “King” and Durant. The two hundred million dollar men of privilege living the life of their dreams immediately jumped on the race horse, and now the discussion has shifted to race. You see, for Lebron James and Kevin Durant; it is ok to spout insults and personal attacks against the President all day long, but any response to their vitriol and hatred must be racist. There you go!

The Mockers of Prayer

The mockers of prayer are out in full force again. They jump at every opportunity to stick their middle fingers in the faces of average Americans. They relish heaping their scorn on those who look to God in the difficult times. They declare with dripping sarcasm that the prayers people offer to help cope when things are tough are useless. Thoughts and prayers are not enough they proclaim! No one ever said that it is enough. It is simply one of the powerful mechanisms that helps people cope when the burdens of life seem to weigh them down and the answers to life’s difficult questions are hard to find. The mockers of prayer see themselves as edgy. They are “telling it like it is.” They are “keeping it real.” They believe that they are the smart ones with all the answers to solve all of life’s problems, and anyone who calls out to God in earnest in the time of trouble is just a fool. Pay no attention to the scornful though, and pray even harder when the answers are evasive. Call out to God even louder when the way is hard to find. Pay no attention to the left and the Democratic Party as they try to tear down another pillar of our society when they insist on mocking prayer, and say that “thoughts and prayers are not enough.” No one ever said it was.

Evil in the World

Evil exists in the world! It is an undeniable fact of life and it does not matter what laws we put in place to prevent bad things from happening.  Bad things will nevertheless happen! That is a cold hard fact of life. Each time there is a shooting like what happened in Florida yesterday, politicians immediately get on their soap boxes to call for more laws that the say would prevent similar incidents from happening.  These atrocities become the vessel for politicians to seek their self-interest, and they do it with the self-righteous gusto and proclamation that it is all for the children. As the situation on the ground unfolded, before all the facts were even known about what transpired, Senator Mike Murphy declared that the epidemic of mass slaughter is because of inaction by congress, suggesting that all we need from Congress is to institute more laws and magically, bad things will not happen anymore. Absent from the pontifications that these politicians give is the issue that is at the core of these horrific events.

Sure laws matter, we cannot have a society that has no laws, but laws alone will not help. There are many other countries around the world that have tougher gun laws but with much higher murder rates. Mr. Murphy will do well to remember that Timothy McVeigh committed his act of carnage using fertilizer, the 911 terrorists used two airplanes, in Norway where there are strict gun laws, Mr. Anders Brevik killed dozens despite these gun laws. But none of this is the point . The deeper issue is to confront the mindset that leads people to commit such vicious acts.

What is it that would drive an individual to make a conscious decision to slaughter innocent, defenseless people in this manner? One of the reasons that we often hear given is that people are mentally ill. That too may be true, but is it at the heart of why all of these incidents keep happening as often as they do? If one considers different scenarios where people commit these acts, mental heath may not be the prime reason for these appalling acts. When MAJ Hassan Nadal opened fire on his fellow Soldiers in Fort Hood, it was not mental illness that drove him to do that. The same can be said for the San Bernardino killers. Timothy McVeigh was not mentally ill. Across the world where these horrific acts are committed, the reasons are often not mental illness. It was not mental illness that drove a young man to enter the home of an Israeli family, killing everyone, including a baby that was just a few months old, by slitting the baby’s throat. These incidents are driven by a different motivator. Warlords in Africa and the people who willingly follow them and terrorize their own people, committing some of the most brutal acts that make Hitler look like Saint Hitler, do not commit their acts because they are mentally disturbed. Of course, it sometimes figures into the equation, but it may be a mistake to think that is the main problem. It may sound simplistic, but the main problem comes down to a question of values and the condition of the heart.

While everything has to be placed on the table in trying to solve this issue, and consideration given to all options, and applied where practicable, the question of evil cannot be ignored. The values that have served the country well for a very long time have to be reinforced across our society so that the idea of committing such an act would indeed be something rare if not completely eliminated. Human beings have proven their capacity for committing horrific acts of evil, and it will continue like that, but perhaps in our society, the values that we instill from early on can make us on of the rare places where this does not happen. If we do not deal with the issue of the heart every other solution will be just a band aid.

 

White Guilt, Black Victims

White guilt and black victims! What a combination. A bunch of white liberals who so feel the need to assuage the weight of guilt on their shoulders for sins committed by white people before them, that they encourage all kinds of bad behavior by black people, and make excuses for them. They hold black people to such a low standard in the name of being “woke,” and they pat themselves on the shoulder, completely oblivious to the damage that they are doing in the black community because of their actions. Many in the black community look at these white leftists and feel validated in their victim status. They can point to the “caring” white person, and say that even white people agree with them, and understand their plight. The white leftist  then gets to go home feeling righteous, patting him/herself on the shoulder as many of the people who they claim to be fighting form continue to wallow in their predicament, believing there is no way out because they are victims of “the man.”

Check out this ludicrous, stupid, asinine tweet by one of the white leftist enablers who thinks that she is “woke.” Her name is Emily Lakdawalla. She is a “planetary evangelist” (whatever that is) for The Planetary Society. This is what she said, referring to the movie Black Panther “so I carefully did not buy tickets for opening weekend because I did not want to be the white person sucking Black joy out of the theater. What’s the appropriate date for me to by tickets? Is next weekend ok? Now folks, are these people serious with this nonsense? There are at least ten troubling questions all intertwined in this drivel that she tweeted, but there is no need to go through them all because they are all questions screaming for answers. If this does not blow your mind…

Racism by Any Other Name…

The video in the post below is difficult to watch. It is sad, disheartening and troubling. It is also dangerous because if this is where we are headed as a country, the consequences of this kind of sectarianism will be devastating. In listening to these beautiful, seemingly intelligent women speak, one is forced to wonder what drives this type of cynical, and almost dystopian view that they have of the country.  As they rail against Trump and white America, they readily latch on to these terrible views as they embrace stereo types about a whole group of people. These women who are citizens of the United States, with all of its laws, protections, and systems in place to protect everyone against discrimination, honestly see themselves as part of an underclass group of citizens. They see themselves as persecuted in America. To boost their claims of persecution, they cite some anecdotal evidence that they are certain is proof of their status as second class citizens. They use their status as victims to retreat into a cocoon where they get their beliefs and their stereotypes reinforced by like minded provocateurs who share their awful beliefs.

If there is one American who is not bothered by this type of small minded attitude that is a part of leftist ideology, then the country is in a precarious state. This is the kind of rhetoric that should stoke the outrage of every American because it is the opposite of what so many have fought so hard to overcome. The blood of many Americans has been shed in the struggle to overcome this kind of hatred and bigotry in the effort to make America a place where people would be judged by the content of their character as Dr. Martin Luther King once powerfully declared, but here we are. Fifty years after the death of Dr. King, and black people, who more than others, should be weary of this type of attitude, are the ones who are promoting it without any blow back from people in the media, in Academia, Hollywood or regular Americans. This is really outrageous, and if people continue to be given a pass when they speak and behave this way, then; we are in a pretty dark place.

We can be sure that If a group of white women with their own justification for having a similar retreat was to do something similar, there would be no end to the calls of condemnation, but because it is a group of black women, it is ok. It is a guarantee that any rally promoting white supremacy will have more protestors than people attending in support of it. People overwhelmingly respond to white racism in a way that makes it very clear that there is no tolerance for it, and that is the way that it should be. The same principle should apply when dealing with black racism. It is time to put a stop to this nonsense before it begins to truly get out of control and tear the country apart.

When you look at these women, they seem like average, regular Janes.  They don’t seem to be aggressive. They are not loud and obnoxious, they are quite articulate and, they carry themselves with decorum. That makes them even more dangerous. They are dignified, pushing a very dangerous ideology. If anyone reading this thinks that this view of these women is exaggerated, read the words of the leader of the retreat again. She says “I have no tips for a white person” she said “My tip to white people is to let us have our space, let us have our room, and go hang out with other white people. We’re okay. You know, you’ve done enough damage.” She said that she “decided one day to just eliminate white people from my personal life” due to “micro aggressions” and “passive-aggressiveness.” She even believes that white people should not have passports. Observe that none of them gave any real examples of the racist persecution that they talk about in their lives, just regular stuff that everyone has to deal with in some form or another at some time, in other words, life.

While women around the world have to deal with real problems like female genital mutilation, sex slavery, forced marriages as young girls, acid baths, honor killings, denied education and many other hardships, these women sit in their retreat pushing racial segregation while marinating, and basking in their victim status.

It is ironic indeed to hear one of these women declare that her “blackness is strength,” in a brazen display of weakness, as they talk about safe spaces and micro aggressions.

Black people, reject the Democrat Party. This is where they wish to have you. This is the plantation on which they wish to keep you.

Race Baiting and the Democratic Party

These are the words of Nancy Pelosi, her own words, no commentary.

I’m reminded of my own grandson. He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say.

And when he had his sixth birthday … he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he’s from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?

He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.

So beautiful. So beautiful. The beauty is in the mix. The face of the future for our country is all-American. And that has many versions.

Now ask the question if a black conservative or Republican (or even a white one, but we’ll go with the black one for now) said the same words but using a different race/ethnic group. Now let your imagination flow:

Black Conservative/Republican: I’m reminded of my own grandson. He is Caribbean, Ethiopian, whatever, whatever, and Nigerian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Nigerian] side of the family, shall we say.

And when he had his sixth birthday … he had a very close friend whose name is Oliver, he’s from Great Britain. And he has beautiful white skinned, beautiful blue eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?

He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had white skin and blues eyes like Antonio.

So beautiful. So beautiful. The beauty is in the purity. The face of the future for our country is all-American. And that has many versions.

What would the response be from the media and the left? Why are these people allowed to continue with this nonsense over and over and over again without any blowback? It is time to ensure that the Democrat Party gets thrown into the dumpster of history. The country cannot afford to put these people back in power. This is not some radio personality talking this nonsense. This is not an internet troll. This is not some outlier. This is not an example of the bad apple.This is the mainstream of the Democratic Party. There is example after example of them saying things like this. Get rid of these people once and for all. If these are the politicians that we sow, we deserve the country that we reap. Get rid of them!

 

Time for Black People to Abandon the Democratic Party

Black people, forsake the Democrat Party and say good by to the left. Black people are nothing, but a vote to these charlatans. All of the cities run by these people continue to be a mess. Detroit, Chicago, LA, Baltimore, just name the city experiencing waves of crime, poverty, failing schools and every imaginable ill, and it is more than likely run by a Democratic politician. They continue to hold black people to low standards, telling them they are victims, that they cannot do better unless some politician comes riding in on a white horse to rescue them. As one person so eloquently put it “instead of providing black people with a ladder to climb to the top, they throw them a rope promising to pull them up.” Black people are then at the mercy of those holding the rope. It is time to break free from this people who truly have no interest in the welfare of black people. Cast off those chains and be free. Take a chance and leave the Democratic plantation. There are no magic formulas, and life will not automatically become problem free. Ultimately, God is the best hope for all mankind no matter the skin color, but choosing better leaders could certainly help.

SOTU and Your Modern Democratic Party

Joy Reid told us exactly what she found so offensive about Donald’s speech last night. This is what she said “Church, family, police, military, the national anthem. Trump trying to call on all of those tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for.” Got that folks? Look again at the things that Joy Reid finds offensive, ok. She also said that only people who listen to Fox News know who MS 13 is, and that might be a part of the problem, isn’t it? A notorious criminal gang made up of a large number of illegal immigrants could only be found on Fox News, no other news organization in the traditional media sees it as a news worthy story.

Representative Louis Guitierrez walked out at chants of “USA, USA.” It was just too much for him to stomach. As he headed for his safe space several Democrats patted him on the shoulder as if too say we understand buddy, we are with you.
Honoring the Korean young man who escaped Kim Jung Un’s North Korea did not even move them a bit.

They did not have to try and outdo the Republicans with their applause because the parties are fundamentally different, but man; could they could not even muster the courage to politely clap for the news that black unemployment is at the lowest level it has ever been. Apple bringing ashore 350 billion dollars to reinvest in America, and in the process creating 20 thousand jobs is no big deal to them. Let’s just remain stone faced and angry said the Democrats. An uptick in manufacturing jobs and unemployment hitting a 45 year low is just a “meh, no big deal.”

Now it’s important to remember that they are not disputing any of these numbers. They are not saying it’s not true. Some of them have said that the growth that we are witnessing in the economy right now is the direct result of Obama policies. Fine, even if that is true; why not get up and applaud and then sell it as Obama’s successes afterward? Confronting the very real threat the vicious MS-13 gang poses to our most vulnerable neighborhoods could not even warrant a positive response from the dour Democrats. Not even fighting the opioid epidemic, really? WOW! The many references to patriotism and flag was offensive to them! Love of country offends them

This is the Democrat Party. No one is making this stuff up, it was on display for all to see, and this ladies and gentlemen is your modern Democratic Party. Rest assured there is nothing, nothing; for those who missed it, nothing that Donald Trump could have said that would have moved the Democrats to give an ounce of support to him. They cannot make Trump look good in any way, for any reason. The guy is just a buffoon after all!

President Trump and the S… hole Comment (plus more commentary)

Today Jeb Bush said that President Trump’s S…hole comment was racist. Wow, I bet no one saw that coming. Another establishment politician attacking the President as a racist. That’s a new tactic! Took everyone by surprise. First of all, we can all agree that name calling is not cool, and the President of the United States should not talk this way about other countries. There are ways to make a point about the dire straits of many countries without insulting them. Having said that, strictly for the purpose of adding perspective, let us look at what was said, with a bit of nuance. To do that, let us revisit what god said about Libya when he was the President of the United States. God was the first black President of the United States. He was loved, adored and worshipped by the masses, equally by the proletariat and by the elite. Was it racism when god described Libya as a s… show. Remember, Libya is a North African country that god described this way, but that’s not all. In addition to calling Libya a s… show, god expressed his disappointment that the Middle East was not more like Scandinavia. For those who do not know, Scandinavia consists of the Lilly white countries of Norway, Finland and Sweden. In talking about peace in the Middle East this is what god said “if only everyone could be like Scandinavians, this would all be easy.” When god made this statement, was he promoting his white side, and pushing the superiority of the white race (his mother was white after all), or was there some context to the statement?

One of the people who was in the room when the President allegedly made his S… hole comment is Senator Lindsay Graham. He said this in 2013. “The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hellhole come to America.” Were those comments by Senator Graham racist? First of all, he is a Republican which under the status quo makes him a racist, but he is a Republican who supports amnesty for illegal aliens so that automatically makes a difference…let’s get back on track. The point is that no one was proclaiming the end of the world as we know it because they felt the Senator’s statement was racist. Anderson Cooper was not on CNN giving an Oscar worthy performance talking about the bravery of the people from hellhole countries as he fought to hold back tears over the Senator’s statement calling some countries hell holes.

Apart from the indignant protestations of the righteous crowd over Trump’s denigrating comments, they were apoplectic because the President used the phrase s… hole.  Of course, it would have been splendid, it would have been absolutely fabulous if he did not use the word, but can we all agree that Americans cuss? Even god was reputed to have a foul mouth. Some time ago a reporter talked about a time when god waylaid the press on a couple of occasions with what she described as a profanity laced tirade. The response to that was a big ho hum, but here we are two weeks after the whole alleged s… hole comment, and people are still losing their hair over it. No one is even saying that because Obama did it, it’s ok for Trump to do it. The point is to show the blatant double standard in the reaction to similar incidents by these two Presidents.

Many people think that supporters of Donald Trump support his uncouth manners and his sometimes undeniably childish behavior. Hs supporters are not blind. They see that he can be crude. They see that he is often rude and that sometimes he even acts like a jerk. No one is claiming that Donald Trump is a paragon of virtue or that he has the most sterling character. People support Donald Trump because he is on the right side of the issues. It is as clear as crystal that the current President of the United States is a flawed man, but history is filled with flawed men who rose to the occasion and responded heroically when they were needed to do it. Trump’s supporters do not believe that his character flaws disqualify him from doing the job of the President. Some of this biggest supporters do wish that he gave off a kinder, gentler, warmer vibe, and that he was a more virtuous character, but they understand that the job of President sometimes requires more than that. Above all, Trump’s supporters do not believe the narrative or accept the voices that call him a racist, misogynist, sexist, islamophobic, xenophobic bigot or any of the vile names that his opponents call him daily. Once again, they believe that he is right on the issues that will take the country forward. It is not any more complicated than that, but in addition to all of that; two words scare them more than anything. Hillary Clinton! For all of Trump’s faults, they would rather have him than Hillary Clinton, a woman who is as corrupt as they come, and who, policy wise is on the wrong side of all of the major issues. So while many of Trumps supporters sometimes cringe when he sends out a silly tweet that gives more fuel to his haters, they see him as a champion of the American way of life.

DACA and the DREAMERs

Illegal immigrants went to the home of Chuck Schumer to protest the other day after he backed down on the Government shut down. They made it clear that they were not pleased that he choose American citizens over them in his fight with President Trump. If there was ever a group of people who represent what the Democratic Party stands for it is the DREAMERs who demand amnesty. They demonstrate the entitlement mentality that Democrats encourage of their supporters. Here is a group of people in the country as uninvited guests who hope to be granted permission to stay here, and instead of showing some humility and trying to win people over, they instead make demands of Americans. Now, many of the people in the country illegally deserve our empathy. A large number of them had no choice coming here. Many others, simply looking for a better life entered illegally and took advantage of the fact that the American Government was not enforcing their immigration laws, and they remained here. Who can blame them? America has long been a welcoming place to people from all over the world, but the country has a right to demand that illegal immigration come to an end.  

The DREAMERs have learned well from the Democrat Party. They act like Americans owe them citizenship and all of the benefits that come with it. They call the people who want to see sensible immigration change that benefits Americans, white supremacists and other names. Today, they rejected President Trump’s latest concession calling it “a white supremacist ransom note.” They declared “they have taken immigrant youth hostage, pitting us against our own parents, black immigrants and our communities in exchange for our dignity.” Instead of trying to win the American people over with a charm offensive, these people are acting like spoiled brats. The people who have followed all of the rules to come to America are expected to take a back seat to these people who should be in the very back of the line. Yes indeed, they have learned well from the Democrat Party.

Make no mistake the Democrat Party has no interest in these people as human beings. The Democrats see them as a reliable future voting bloc. They have already inculcated the DREAMERS in the victim mentality. They are grooming them to be good Democrats, and preparing them to be a part of the permanent underclass who become dependent on the Government for everything, securing their votes in the process.

For the first time in decades America has a chance to fix its immigration system. President Trump won the election primarily based on this issue, and many Americans are counting on him and the Republican Party to get it right. They must not allow the spoiled brats making demands on the streets to fluster them, and end up making a terrible decision. Compassion must be a part of the solution, but the truth is that the United States owe these people nothing. The DREAMERs would do well to understand that and act like good guests.
