Don’t Forget Who The Left Is

As the self righteous left continues to pontificate and paint themselves as the salt of the earth, do not forget who these people are. These same people who continue to talk about a bunch of unarmed thugs who stormed the Capitol as insurrectionists are the same people who appealed to violence over and over again during the Trump Presidency. Violence was a staple that they used in their resistance to Trump. Do not forget it, violence, intimidation and breaking all of the political norms that are usually afforded a President went out the window with Donald Trump. This all happened just four years ago all the way up to last the last Presidential inauguration. It is too early for revisionism.

Leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, it was no lesser figure than the race pimp John Lewis who called Trump an illegitimate President. He and 66 other members of Congress refused to attend President Trump’s inauguration. Maxine Waters said that she would not ever work with him on any issue and before Trum was even sworn in she talked of impeaching him…before he was even sworn in.

Don’t forget that during Trump’s inauguration leftist mobs raged and rioted on the streets of Washington D.C. They smashed cars, and store fronts. They got in violent confrontations with the police set cars on fire, and damaged police vehicles. Who can forget the dramatic picture of a stretch limo that was set on fire by the marauding hordes of protestors. By the time it was over the police arrested over 200 agitators.

They did not restrict their actions to Washington D.C. though they took their protests to cities across America during the inauguration. How about when the day after the inauguration leftist agitators shouted “not my President?” They blocked highways and other roadways, and in Portland they even caused the delay of trains.After Trump was inaugurated the FBI put out information to the media about a supposed dossier that showed Trump paid prostitutes to pee on a bed on which Obama had slept, then based on absolutely nothing they launched a three year attack accusing Trump of being a Russian stooge. Democrats and the news media proceeded to call Trump all sorts of names. Even former spy chiefs James Clapper and Paul Brennan were all over the airwaves suggesting and saying that Trump is a Russian asset. For the entire four years that Trump was President they never let up from their attacks. To this day Hillary Clinton continues to refer to Trump’s tenure as President as illigitimate.

We had Maxine Waters encouraging people to get agressive and harass members of Trump’s team in gas stations, theaters, and supermarkets, wearing a MAGA hat became a potential hazard to the wearer, celebrities were on Twitter and all over the media competing to see who could attack Trump in the most vile manner, while many of them openly spoke of how delighted they would be if he died a violent death.

The Democrats in the Senate held up Trump’s cabinet nominations and they did everything in their power to sabotage his every move. They could not even rejoice when he killed two of the most violent terrorists responsible for the deaths of Americans across the globe. Even that was an occasion for them to criticize Trump. They called Trump every nasty name in the book and for the entire four years Tump was unable to find any cooperation from the Democrat Party. They railed and they railed and they railed against him down to his final days. They then impeached him for inciting an “insurrection” even though from the transcript of Trump’s speech, from video and audio no one can point to anything that Trump said that incited violence. This is not even one quarter of the story.These are the people who would lecture the deplorables. Pay these hypocrites no mind.

BLM’s Response to the Cuba Protests

When calling the Democrat Party machine and the whole leftist cabal evil, it is not meant as hyperbole. In the truest sense of the word, these people are evil. The latest example that demonstrates this is the BLM scammers. They are blaming the United States for what is happening in Cuba right now. It is not the Cuban Government. It is not that the Cuban people are tired of real oppression, (not the fake oppression that BLM claims is happening in the U.S.) and the denial of the most basic human rights. Nah…that’s not it. It is the fault of the U.S.A.

But who is surprised by this really? The BLM hero Colin Kaepernik is a fan of the Cuban Government and their system. During his clown show a few years ago, when he was wearing socks depicting the police as pigs, Mr. black Freedom fighter himself was wearing a T-shirt of the brutal Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and justified it by saying that Castro invested in more schools than prisons. That’s when someone took the opportunity to celebrate Adolph Hitler for the beautiful autobahn system that became a model for the world. Those six million Jews, plus millions more who died at his hands…meh. You get the point. So here we have the morally bankrupt, evil BLM, so filled with hatred for their own country, unable to recognize that in Cuba black people are third class citizens.

The working class in general are second class citizens, and people have literally died by the tens of thousands and continue to die at the hands of a brutal socialist regime. People are tortured, and jailed by the thousands for daring to oppose the regime. It is really a police state, but who cares, as long as the get to say down with America.

Wokeness at ESPN

The wokeratti civil war going on at ESPN has been interesting to observe. You have the woke white female who is all in on the Black Lives Matter train and the whole diversity none sense, going up against the super woke black female also in on the BLM scam. Make no mistake the white female is woke. She is down for the black cause. Like many woke white lefties she has no problem talking about injustice and all of the other SJW talking points, pretending that black people are oppressed in America.

Like so many of the white agitators who are constantly stirring up grievance and discontent amongst black people, she is unwilling to start with herself.  She is not willing to give up her white privileged position for the cause. It’s always those other evil whiteys. The buck stops there…with those other evil whiteys, not “here” with her.  Let those other white people sacrifice their white privilege and give some oppressed deserving black person a chance. 
After Nichols forgot to disconnect her transmission while broadcasting from her hotel room, She was caught in a private conversation complaining that the beautiful and talented black female, Maria Taylor had cost her her prestigious gig at ESPN. Nichols had no problems with Taylor getting opportunities to expand her horizons, just expand somewhere else. Just don’t mess with my gig was her complaint.

It’s a familiar story isn’t it? I’m good, everyone else is bad. It’s especially true in the wokeratti. They have no problem stirring up discontent and encouraging grievance, telling how everyone else is out to get the particular victim class of the moment, but the wokeratti themselves are never the problem. Because they are so good at creating monsters, they always keep focus off themselves. They then get to rhetorically set the world on fire and wreak metaphorical havoc. In the process many of the wokesters get to pat their own shoulders for being good white people. 

Of course in this instance the conversation of Nichols complaining about her equally woke black female colleague added a plot twist and now the lights are turned on her. She is now cast as the insensitive privileged white female who Iacks self awareness. She says one thing in public, but when the cameras are off makes her true feelings known.

On the other hand you have Maria Taylor. What do you say about this woman? She has so much going for her. She is talented. She is bright. She is personable. She is competent. She is successful. On top of all of that, she is a physical specimen. She is incredibly attractive. She is TV gold. 

Despite all of that, at times when you listen to her; the attribute she seems to cherish more than anything is her blackness. Like so many in sports media, it often seems like she sees the world in terms of the oppressor and the oppressed. That viewpoint often colors the way she interprets many of the issues she covers and also her commentary on a lot of what is happening in the world of sports and other areas.
Another thing that stands out in this saga is the way that Nichols is being cast as a racist for her comments. People in the leftist sports media and the wokeratti in general are convinced that her white privilege gives her a blind spot so that she can’t even see her own racism.

What is crazy is that Nichols may be right that Taylor was given the NBA finals gig as a token gift for being a black female. It is also wild that people think it is ok to accuse a whole group of people of so called privilege, but if one member of that group says that she lost her job to a black female because of affirmative action then everyone acts like the world is on fire.It’s not that Taylor does not have what it takes to do the job. She is very capable. In addition she may have a unique perspective to add to her coverage of the NBA finals as a basketball player herself. She has what it takes to do the job, but in the world of the righteous woke, where color and identity politics as a whole is prime; these two women may simply be collateral damage in the stupidity of the diversity games where everyone is either oppressed or oppressor.

Jesus and the Canaanite woman

There is a controversial account given in the scriptures that seems to evoke the ire of feminists, race wokesters, critics, skeptics, and unbelievers everywhere. The Gospel of Mark and Matthew gives an account of a Syro Phonecian woman who came to Jesus seeking his help, and Jesus called her a dog in response. 

Here is the account of the incident as recorded in Matthew 15: And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon.” But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” And he answered, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.”  Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.

The first thing to say is that no one here is going to make any excuses for Jesus. Neither is anyone here going to be presumptuous to think that Jesus must justify what he said. if Jesus were to call anyone a dog, it should evoke humility from that individual. If he did he would have a reason for using that language. That individual whoever he or she may be had better start barking in response, and ask what the deeper meaning is behind the words of Jesus.  In other words if the Master of the universe calls me a dog, that is a good time for me to start doing some introspection, see myself as Jesus sees me, and respond appropriately. That is exactly what happened in the case of the Syro Phonecian woman. 

The first lesson she learned was the lesson of persistence. She did not just turn away when the disciples refused to listen to her, and offer her the help she was seeking. She went to the Master himself. When she turned to Jesus, and he did not immediately give her his attention, she did not accuse him of Jewish privilege, male privilege, or racism. She did not call him unfair or accuse him of showing favoritism. When Jesuse ignored her, she continued to plead her case until she finally got his attention. Jesus then said to her “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” 

In addition to teaching the woman a lesson about humility, faith and persistence, Jesus at the the time of this encounter was mission focused, and in the process letting it be known that his message to the world was going to be transmitted through the people of Israel. They were the ones through whom God in times past had made himself and his message known to the nations. With the new pact that God was about to establish with the world through Jesus, Jesus main focus was getting the message to the children (the nation and the people that had traditionally been in relationship with God). The message would eventually spread to the dogs (the nations and the peoples that had tradtionally rejected, and been in rebellion against God). Jesus used this incident to convey a twofold message, the individual lessons to the woman and the bigger picture of what his earthly ministry was about. 

The people who use this bible incident to portray Jesus as a bigot are unfortunately and sadly mistaken. In other situations dealing with foreigners, depending on the circumstance and the message he wanted to convey, Jesus took the time to address those issues in the manner that best communicated the point he was making. In the case of the Roman Centurion, Jesus marveled at the man, then said to the people following him “truly, I tell you, I have not found such faith with anyone in Israel.” In that incident also, the non Israelite centurion had no misconceptions of his standing before God even though he was a devout man of stature in the powerful Roman society. He said to Jesus “Lord, I am not worthy for you to come under my roof, but just speak the word and it will be done.” 

In another instance Jesus initiated contact with one of the “dogs” in another gentile territory to rectify a terrible condition in that man’s life. By the time the situation was over, other “dogs” were asking Jesus to leave their territory, even though they had just witnessed a supreme and miraculous act of kindness by Jesus towards one of their own. The “dog” that Jesus delivered from his turmoil was so grateful that he wanted to go with Jesus, but Jesus told him instead to “return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.”

In the famous parable of  the Good Samaritan Jesus made it very clear that he treasures the heart, when the religious leader tried to trick him by asking “who is my neighbor?”. On another occasion Jesus demonstrated his love for people regardless of their ethnicity when he approached a Samaritan woman at a well, and he struck up a conversation with her (breaking all kinds of taboos in the process). By the time he finished his conversation with the woman she was running excitedly to her village inviting everyone to come see this fella who had been so gracious to her.  When the people heard him they said to the woman that after encountering Jesus for themselves, they were convinced that he was the Savior of he whole world. They invited Jesus to stay with them, and he ended up spending two days with the Samaritans who were so passionately despised by the Jews. 

Not only did Jesus show favor to all people, but he was hard on his own people, and also used harsh language toward them. He pronounced misery on many of the religious leaders and called them hypocrites. He described them as white grave stones,  nice looking on the outside but filled with dead men’s bones on the inside. In fact in one passage of scripture, Jesus hammered the religious leaders over an over, calling them all kinds of names. Jesus was so impartial that at one time he referred to Peter (one of his closest disciples) as Satan.

Throughout the scriptures God repeatedly reminded the Israelites that it was not because of anything special about them that he worked through them. In fact at different times in their history God dealt as harshly with the Jews when they rebelled against him as he did with other nations. 

No, Jesus did not favor any individual or group of people because of their race. Quite the opposite, he looked at their hearts. Anyone who reads the story of the Syro Phonecian woman and concludes that Jesus was showing racial prejudice is incorrect. Thank God that the woman herself did not allow any misguided feelings she may have felt to deny her blessing. She saw herself for who she was in her current condition, and what Jesus was trying to impart to her. She humbled herself, persisted with her request, and continued to have faith that he would answer her petition. He did! 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Happy Independence Day America

People often point to the indiscretions of the United States as examples of America’s malevolence. What they fail to realize, is that in a world where tyranny was the norm, and people all over the world were subjected to the oppressive whims of monarchs; the founders introduced a new system of governance to the world. 

It was based on the principle that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. The idea was that the rights we enjoy as human beings are not due to the benevolence of any government or ruler, but we are endowed by our creator with these inalienable rights. As a result; these rights cannot be arbitrarily revoked without any kind of due process, and only under mitigating circumstances. 

This idea was a revolutionary concept, and the constitution that was based on it placed many limitations on government. It stressed what the government is not allowed to do to its citizens. Freedom of the individual and the pursuit of happiness was a fundamental belief that guided this new system. 

Though imperfect, this new form of government allowed the country to confront and rectify many of the difficult problems that it faced. It allowed people to openly oppose injustice, resist oppression and defy attempts to subjugate them. It is because of this unprecedented idea of government by the people and for the people that caused the country to agonize over issues like slavery (how many countries have fought a civil war over slavery?), women’s suffrage and other ignoble policies that were inconsistent with founding values. 

The country has fought many battles and has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to become the greatest force for good in the world that has ever been known. By no means is this a perfect country, but perfection is an impossible standard. This country however constantly works on making itself better. Some have taken to highlighting the imperfections of America to ironically call for more government control and involvement in the lives of citizens. They forget the history of tyranny by governments until this great experiment in governance by the United States. 

Today, many people are now willing to cede control of certain areas of their lives to the government for so called security. They forget that the beneficiary is always at the mercy of the benefactor. When this happens, a direct result is freedom coming under threat (observe current attacks on the first amendment). When faced with these threats even more vigilance is needed in order to ensure that we maintain freedom for posterity. 

If we ever lose our freedoms it will not happen overnight, but through a slow creep that then overtakes us before anyone can react. it was James Madison who said “since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”. 

Remember also this quote by Ronald Reagan “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” 

We must never forget the sacrifices of those who fought the intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, and physical battles in the name of freedom and most importantly; the values they lived that helped to shape and produce what has been, and continues to be the greatest force for good in the world: the United States of America.

Enjoy independence day and always remember what it took to achieve it.

Precious in God’s Eyes

In a debate with the Christian Philosopher, theologian and apologist, William Lane Craig, Christopher Hitchens the famed atheist made a very interesting point. Hitchens made the statement in follow up to a point he had made. He said “you have to imagine that all of this randomness, extinction and death is the will of a being. You are free to believe that if you wish. And all of this should happen so that one very imperfect race of evolved primates should have the opportunity to become Christians or to turn up at this gym tonight. That all of that was done with us in view. It’s a curious kind of solipsism. It’s a curious kind of self centeredness. I was always brought up to believe that Christians were modest and humble and comported themselves with due humility. There’s a certain arrogance to this assumption that all of this extraordinary development was all about us. And we were the intended and desired result, and that everything else was in the discard. The tremendous wastefullness of it, the tremendous cruelty of it, the tremendous caprice of it, the tremendous tinkering and incompetence of it, never mind; at least we are here and we could be people of faith.”

 First of all, let’s not pay attention to the fact that the people who insist that we are evolved primates, and make fun of believers have a lot to overcome in their acceptance of this idea. Think about it for a minute. There once was nothing, and by nothing we mean absolutely nothing…zilch…nada…naught…zero…zip…nix…diddly squat. Imagine it. Then all of a sudden, from absolute nothingness, there arose the big bang, the product of absolute zilch. Then with no mind behind anything, everything came out as the result of pure randomness; matter, all of the physical laws, all of the order, design, beauty and symbiosis that we have in the universe just simply…happened, but hold on, that’s not all.

After billions and billions of years, from this none living matter came living matter in the form of a cell with all of it’s wonder and sophistication. Still that’s not all. Through a completely arbitrary, non directed, haphazard process we got the world of living things. We got living things that have now become extinct and those that are present in our world today. Dinosaurs, lizards, frogs, cockroaches, butterflies, crickets, mullusks, protists, snakes, aligators, bats, trees, fungi, hornets, fish, birds, primates, and human beings all just happen come about. Voila!  You name it; out of pure happenstance, these things just all came to be, literally from zero to hero. Like Hitchens says to theists, they say to him. “You are free to believe that if you wish.”

Atheists may think that believers have a lot to overcome to get to belief in God, but so do they, and perhaps even more. They may complain that believers do not have answers to certain questions about God, but again; the atheist does not have answers to certain questions about his beliefs either. Scientists do not have all the answers about science, so the fact that theists have some difficult questions they cannot answer is not a disqualifyer for belief. In addition, there are answers to many of the difficult questions that believers grapple with about God. If one applies to learning about God, the same diligence that is required to learn about any topic; that person can find answers.

But that’s not the main issue or takeaway from Mr. Hitchens point. The biggest takeaway from listening to him was his point about Christian solipsism and arrogance to think that all of this is about them. First of all he is wrong that Christians believe that “it is all about them.” He is wrong on that. Christians are just part of God’s bigger purpose. They do not believe that it is all about them at all. It is all about the love of God. The Christian understands that we are all wretched sinners in God’s eyes, totally undeserving of God’s mercy and grace, but God commended his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Despite our our rebellion against God, He continues to reach out to humanity and anyone who responds to Him in honest repentance, that person God will receive. It is the the grace of God that he offers to everyone that gives us our standing as human beings in God’s eyes. There is absolutely nothing special about us except the value that God has placed on us. There is nothing that we have done or can do that merits Gods attention. 

Mr. Hitchens has it all wrong. The Christian has no room for solipsism. Arrogance is the pathway to a fall. There simply is no room for it. Instead the believer looks at the universe with all of it’s complexity, beauty, and order, in addition to all that goes wrong in it, then puts trust in a God who says I love you more than you can imagine. Put your trust in me and know that My ways are not your ways, My thoughts are higher than your thoughts. The finite mind cannot understand all there is to know about the all powerful infinite God, but the God of the heavens is in control and working everything according to his purpose and will. Some things may not make sense to you, but know this, I love you with an everlasting love. It is this that gives us our value, our special place in God’s eyes, not any intrinsic value that we have, or anything that we can offer in return.  

Another look at the Increase in Asian American Hate Crimes

Since finding out that there was a slate of attacks against Americans of Asian descent the media automatically blamed President Trump for this increase in hostility toward Asian Americans.

Trump is such a meanie they said. He is calling the CORONA Virus the Chinese Virus they said. No doubt he is trying to get Asian people killed. Americans, racist bastards that they are; will start turning their racist eyes toward all people of Asian descent to discrimiminate against them and do them harm. Trump is trying to incite violence agains our Asian community. 

Never mind that  many diseases have always been named after the places from where they originate. Take a look at diseases like the West Nile Virus, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), Ebola (named after the Ebola river in Africa as examples of illnesses named after places. Who can forget the Spanish flu or the Hong Kong flu, and while you are at it, go ahead and drop the Spotty Mountain Fever in there for good measure. 

This naming of diseases has been standard practice for decades, but a few years ago in 2015 the World Health Organization (WHO) suddenly decided that naming diseases after the places from which they came is inappropriate. We all know that because WHO said it, then that is the way it is going to be right?. After all they have the…ah… em…the uh…the uh…the credibility of the United Nations behind them. 

Everyone knows the United Nations. It is that international organization of renown. They have been known to put nations like Iran, Cuba, Libya and other despotic nations as members of the U.N. “Human Rights” Council. Yes…yes, that United Nations, the one that can always muster the courage to condemn the State of Israel for its response to tattacks by Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group, but can never seem to condemn the Palestinians with the same gusto. 

Anyhoo! Back to the original topic, everyone concluded that Trump’s sole purpose for calling the CORONA Virus the China Virus was because he absolutely hated Asians. Without even a micro fraction of curiousity, that soon became the mantra on the left, the Democrat Party and members of the victim patrol everywhere. Trump hates Asians and he’s using the CORANA virus to justify his hatred. 

The fake news industrial complex, being the true enemy of the people, were all to happy to lead the propaganda effort against Trump who insisted that people not forget that the disease originated in China. They attempted to hide it from the world. They failed to warn other countries and in time they even attempted to blame the disease on the United States Miitary. But here is the irony, in all of this. Before it became a crime to call the CORONA Virus the China Virus, the media was quite happy to call it the Wuhan Virus, after the specific area in China from where it originated. 

Fellow inhabitants, it is impossible to make up this stuff. No one has has an imagination that is so creative to just come up with any of this.  This stuff actually happened! No one made up any of it. When it became clear that this is another issue that they can use to smear Trump, it suddenly became a mortal sin to call the virus the China Virus.  

Some time after this, there was an increase in attacks against fellow citizens of Asian descent. (when you check out the data, you will see that though these attacks did in fact increase; the extent to which they have actually increased has been greatly exaggerated). These attacks were automatically blamed on Trump. The narrative was that Trump gave white supremacists everywhere the leeway to attack Asian Americans, and people just went with with the narrative. 

While it is true that the number of attacks on Asians have increased by a large percentage, the actual number of attacks is very small. According to Yahoo News and the New York Times, in 2020, the number of hate crime attacks on Asian Americans in New York spiked tenfold, from 3 cases in 2019 to 28 cases in 2020. The total numbers around the country showed an increase from 49 to 73. 

Now in a perfect world, the ideal number of hate crime attacks against any group of people is zero, but for crying out loud; we do not live in a perfect world and these numbers do not reflect any epidemic of attacks against Asian Americans. Sorry, it does not fit the narrative, but it is the truth.

Another element of the story that the media refuses to cover is that many of the high profile hate crime attacks on Asian Americans have not been committed by the evil white male. In fact there has been a series of video footage showing really brutal attacks by black perpetrators on Asian Americans, however none of these attacks have received the same amount of attention as the attacks motivated by so called white supremacy? 

One attack in Atlanta earlier in 2021 where six Asian Americans were killed in a mass shooting by a white shooter was not a hate crime, but was covered with morbid glee as a white supremacy hate crime. The fact that it was not a white supremacy hate crime does not make it less tragic, because eight people ended up dead nevertheless. There is nothing to celebrate, but that attack was contrary to the narrative that a white supremacist did it. Despite all of the evidence to the contrary, the media continued to portray the killings as an anti Asian hate crime. They are invested in portraying everybody who is not white as a victim of the evil hateful white male.

As more and more data suggests that a significant number of what may be hate crime attacks are committed by blacks, the media is is no longer covering the issue with breathtaking enthusiasm, and glee. When they do cover it, they refuse to highlight that aspect of the issue. Of course these attacks by black Americans do not suggest that most black people are out there targeting people of Asian descent. Again, perspective is important. The point is that news outlets have an agenda. There is a concerted effort to stir up conflict between the races in the effort to divide the country. 

People of Asian descent have not traditionally assumed the victim posture in America the way that many black Americas have. Asian Americans like other minorities have suffered discrimination in America, and like other minorities they have overcome a lot, but they have never engaged in the kind of grievance culture that is so prevalent in black America. Many people are bothered by that. They do not like that Americans of Asian descent have to a large extent quietly gone about their affairs in a business like manner, working hard, not complaining, and using the resources available to help them overcome their difficulties. 

In a very interesting article written by Jennifer Ho, Professor of Asian American Studies, University of Colorado Boulder, she blames the increased attacks by blacks on Asians on…wait for it…wait for it…wait for it…she blames it on white supremacy. As noted before, it is impossible to make up this stuff…impossible. No one in this entire universe has such a rich imagination to come up with any of this stuff.

The left would love nothing more than to see an Asian Lives Matter group that agitates in the vein of the the Black Lives Matter hate group, in the effort to portray America as a racist cesspool, dominated by white supremacists.

The Cost of freedom

Freedom is not free. That is a nice sounding cliche that we will do well to ponder what it really means, and all that it entails.

Freedom costs!

The price of freedom is high. Many have willingly put aside their own personal ambitions, goals, desires, and needs to pay the ultimate price in the cause of freedom. They did it unselfishly and we reap the benefits of their sacrifice. Many take for granted the freedom that we enjoy as a nation, without ever stopping for one minute to consider what it costs to maintain this freedom.

People forget that until just a few centuries ago, the freedoms that we enjoy today was a strange concept in the world. People lived their lives under the thumb, and the whims of monarchs and tyrants. Whatever these rulers said was the law. That was the norm, and ordinary people did not have much room to object.

The American experiment in governance, influenced by the British Magna Carta, and the concept that all men are created equal, and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights was a foreign concept to the world.
Though the nation did not always live up to it’s ideals, America was always working on being a better nation to get to where we are today.

Much of the world eventually bought in to the idea, and freedombecame a goal of many around the world, but as noted earlier; freedom costs.

Whether it was on the battle fields of America’s civil war, in the trenches across Europe during WWI, facing off against Hitler’s formidable war machine in WWII, pushing back against the communist North Korean forces, battling the evil of terrorism, and the many other conflicts in between; freedom is not free.

There are always evil forces lying in wait, hoping to disrupt the lives we live, and the freedoms that we have come to cherish and enjoy as a nation, and in many other parts of the world. These evil forces will never rest in their effort against the the cause of freedom. They will never hesitate to use whatever means they have at their disposal in furtherance of their cause.

Many have stood in the way of these evil forces, and given their their lives to preserve the cause of freedom, and today we remember them.

Freedom is not free!

In memory of those who paid the ultimate price.

The brazen leftward tilt of the military

The military is becoming a leftist woke machine, and it is sad to observe. They are not completely gone as yet (they are almost there), so there may still be a small window to summon Delta Force or Seal Team Six to try and perform a rescue mission. It will be an extremely dangerous mission though, even for these formidable fighting forces.

When the left is in the ascendancy, they are hard to beat. They destroy everything in their path. Everything they touch turns to dirt.

As many look on in utter astonishment at the brazenly political posturing, and the embrace of leftist ideology by many in high leadership positions in he military, those who know the importance of the military remaining apolitical are becoming more and more concerned. The military must remain a politically neutral entity if the nation is to continue being a successful republic. If they do not, it is going to be a race to the bottom for the country, and it will definitely bring an end to the United States status as the most preeminent nation.

Those nations that have been nipping at our heels trying o surpass the United States are waiting in the wings, ready to assume the role of the world’s leading nation. For those who think that this is a good thing, how does it sound to have the brutal, despotic, communist nation of China calling the shots around the world. Yes, that China. The country that terrorizes it’s own citizens in slave camps, persecutes anyone who does not tow the political line, forces women to have abortions, is constantly haranguing its neighbors in the South China Sea, recently subjugated the people of Hong Kong, and unleashed a deadly virus on the world.

Yup, that is the country that is lying in wait to usurp the role of the United States in the world. Right alongside them are our old friends, the Russians, while playing lesser roles as minions of these two powers are the Iranians, and other bad actors who would no longer have to worry about the “evil” imperialistic U.S. of A.

This is what we face if the left continues to gain a foothold in the military. It will not happen overnight, but it will happen quicker than you know it.

Look at how swiftly their destructive prowess wreak havoc:

It is a safe bet that 10 years ago no one thought that there’d be a serious discussions about whether a man could be a woman or a woman could be a man. No one thought that people would be called bigots if thy said that neither of these is possible. Did anyone think that in 2021, people would be called terrible human beings because they do not think that men having sex with men or women having sex with women is a good thing?

Who would have thought that anyone would be hated, and that there would be calls to ostracize fellow citizens because they did not support gay marriage.

The left runs education, and large numbers of children are graduating high school unable to read and do math at grade level. Universities are hotbeds of intolerance for anyone who opposes leftist ideology.

Whereas sports was once a unifier, today no one can turn on a basketball game for respite from the constant bombardment of leftist ideology.

Once great cities like San Francisco are now havens for homelessness, and drug addiction. Urban centers across America run by leftists are hotbeds for crime, poverty, and injustice.

The first amendment is under attack as people in power unabashedly declare their hostility against freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

As anti-police sentiment is now en vogue, we listen to calls to defund the police while, murder and other violent crime continues to increase.

The left is dangerous!

Given all of these examples of the left’s destructive ways, what do we suppose will happen to the military if these people manage to firmly sink their claws into this organization, and implement their destructive policies. As they say, the proof is in the pudding.

All world powers eventually fall. It is not going to be any different for the United States. No one nation will be in the number one spot forever. Eventually the day will come when the United States gives up the number one spot in the world. That does not mean that Americans have to turn the military over to a bunch of crackpots, and watch the military become a place for leftist ideology, helping in the country’s decline. If this leftward shift of the military continues it could hasten what would be a meteoric decline of a great nation.

Ultimately, in the grand scheme, almighty God has so much in store for the world, and he will achieve his grand purpose as he weaves all of the chaos in the world to produce the finest tapestry anyone can imagine. In the meanwhile though, Americans should not stand by in silence, nor retreat as they witness another institution embark on a course that leads to self destruction.

Democrats’ evil immigration policy

If you ever doubted it, you must be convinced  now. The Democrat Party machine is evil to the core. The Democrat Party has a vested interest in keeping a permanent underclass of people whom they can continue to exploit in the politics of grievance. Why would they implement the policies that they continue to initiate knowing that these policies do not drive economic success? 

As we observe the chaos at the border, it is evident that the Biden Administration has no interest in pursuing policies that benefit the American people. Why this maniacal laser focus on policy that benefits people from other countries who enter the country illegally? As long as corrupt countries know that they can simply dump their poor on the United States, what incentive do these countrie have to make policies that benefit their own people? 

Make no mistake, the United States has a moral obligation to assist economically struggling countries and peoples, but the solution is not to  disregard the rule of law and simply allow people to flout America’s laws. 

The Democrat Party machine views many of these people as future Democrat voters. The formula is simple. Bring these people into the country. Get them dependent on government assistance. Give them just enough to keep them coming back, but never enough to become independent. In other words, give them handouts never a hand up. Place them in communities where they form enclaves, and the cycle is repeated, then blame racism for keeping them down. Give them citizenship a few years later, tell them that the Republican Party wants to take away all of their benefits, and does not want them to succeed. 

A new victim class is born.

Mission accomplished! 

Repeat. 

White Bashing, America’s new past time

One of the most hateful articles imaginable called whiteness is a pandemic, written by a guy named Damon Young who writes for the NY Times and the root was published. It is hard to believe the things that this man had to say about black, but these anti-white sentiments have been trending for few years now.

This stuff is now mainstream. The gentleman makes all kinds of claims about “whiteness” without providing any kind of data or proof for his sweeping statements. 

So why the emphasis coming from this facebook page on so called hostility to white people?  

Well we see how people react to racism against black people and other minorities. It is to the point that one needs only be suspected of being a racist, and that could lead to becoming an outcast from society.

In America there is nothing worse that being called a racist against black people. Nothing will get you more sympathy as “a person of color” than to be labelled a victim of racism. Many black people wear it as a badge of honor.

Though it is appropriate to abhorr by racism, politicians, academics, corporations, celebrities and other high profile people have gone off the rails, and baseless charges of racism are now used as a bludgeon to beat people into silence.

In the place of what we identify as traditional racism, the exploitation of our legitimate desire to not make the same mistakes of the past has given rise to a new attitude about racism.  It is an attitude that now accepts a new kind of racism. The definition of racism in this instance is changed. It is not considered as racism, and the prejudice directed against white Americans is now see as acceptable. 

The excuse is for accepting this new racism  is that white people have power, and no matter the circumstances of individuals in this group, everyone of them has a built in advantage over black people and people of color. The system is built to advantage white people we are told. Despite all of the laws and the mechanisms that we have in place to combat racism, none of that matters. 

The proof that people who charge racism use to show racism is the disproportionate numbers where blacks and people of color are under represented in situations that benefit them, and where they are over represented in situations that disadvantage them. As far as these race hustlers are concerned everything in life is now supposed to reflect the exact demographic make up of the country, and if it does not, then racism is the cause. It does not matter that this model has never ever been reflected anywhere at anytime in history. 

No one is giving the magic formula that shows how to make everything equal so that everything is equally proportioned to match America’s demographic make up. Our ruling class is now simply telling us that it is their job to ensure that everything in life affects every demographic to the exact same measure that is represented in the country. 

They have identified the primary source of all inequality, and it is white privilege. Eliminating that privilege is now a major endeavor of the elites, and it is being done through demonization, and policy that is aimed at excluding the group viewed as privileged.   

As a result, hostility towards this group is not treated the same way that hostility towards blacks and other minority groups is treated. 

In America, people can now say anything against white people. It is ok to make any accusation against them as a group, and dismiss their concerns, while actively discriminating against them in the name of correcting past wrongs. 

You see, it’s true when people use these broad stereotypes, and accusations to speak about white people.

We would not accept this kind of labeling against other groups because it is not good to paint any group of people with so wide a brush. With white people it’s different though because it is all true.

Right?
