Politics, people and God

 Yesterday in church one of the pastors gave a very potent, timely reminder during his prayer that Jesus admonished his followers to pray for their enemies. As the pastor prayed, everything that happened in the last week across the country came to mind. The pastor and one other leader also said a pray on behalf of the nation asking for wisdom, guidance and for God to remind his people  that even when things do not go the way that they expect them to go, God is still in control.   

The anger over what has been happening in the country, not just this week but over the last four years has led many to get into the political arena and do battle pitting ideas against ideas. So many people think that all one has to do is convince the other side that their political views are wrong and once people are convinced they will change their political views. Political differences over the last few years have led to enmity between neighbors, friends, acquaintainces, and families. Everyone thinks that they are correct. 

While it is true that a lot of politics is clearly a matter of opinion, interpretation, or based strictly on the way people feel about a particular subject, on the other hand; truth, right and wrong is also existent in politics. There are some issues that are not simply a matter of opinion.  When it comes to these issues some people become very passionate and they believe that they have to speak out on them. They think that all they have to do is show others in no uncertain terms the truth of a matter, or the virtue of a matter, and that should be enough to convince others. When others cannot see, or refuse to see what is clearly the truth or what is clearly right or wrong, it often leads to frustration for those trying enlighten others.  Those trying to convince others think that they just have to continue showing people why truth, right and wrong matter, and why a particular issue falls into one of those categories. 

Though it is important to engage politically, it is also important to remember that in the end, people are people, and even political opponents are made in the image and likeness of God. Because our politics are so divisive today many people take it personally when they cannot convince their political opponents over to the side they advocate. Some take it so personally that they begin to view those on the oter side of the political spectrum, not simply as political opponents, but as real enemies. The effort to convince political opponents then intensifies, and frustrations grow, sometimes even turning into anger. Some then begin to see political opponents not as neighbors, friends, acquaintances, family etc. but simply as opposing vessels who need to be convinced about the error of their ways.. 

Jesus said “you have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy, but I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you,that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for He makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust. For if you love only those who love you, what recompense will you have? Dont  the tax collectors do the same? 

Thank you to our pastor whose words resonated beyond more that he probably imagined. He prayed a very meaningful prayer. It gave a timely reminder that politics is not simply about trying to convince people, and  thanks to our technical director for his prayer that reminded us to pray for our political leaders. 

As Jesus’ words ring through time, let’s remember to apply them to our political opponents. Continue to speak truth in the face of lies, but remember to pray for poliitacl opponents. Don’t hold back from engaging in the market place of ideas, don’t back down when you ar right, but remember to see people as people. Pray for those in authority even if your candidate loses and remember these other words of Jesus to “set your affections on things above.” This world will pass away, but eyes have not seen nor ears heard what God has prepared for those who love him. 

Be blessed even in this toxic political climate.  

No entity lies and wages war on the truth like the American mainstream media and the left

The new model of the left is not just to spread propaganda, but they have zoned in on portraying the truth as a lie and lies as truth. This is evil like we have not seen in the United States before. Make no mistake lies and propaganda have always been around, but in the United States there has always been an emphasis on Judaeo Christian values. Unlike many nations before, the United States emphasizes truth. This is not to say that the United States is perfect, in fact, far from it. Like individuals, no country is perfect and the United States certainly is not, but the United States has always been a nation of laws and a nation that values truth. 

Even if the country never fully achieves it because we live in an imperfect world; truth is an American value. The attacks on truth by the left and the media in the current day United States is brazen and evil. These people are not even trying to hide their deception. It is a two pronged attack of propaganda where they spread lies in the effort to push an evil agenda, but even worse is the attacks on truth. Don’t believe your lying eyes says the media. Pay no attention to your lying ears. It is we who are telling the truth says the media and the left. 

What is most amazing though is that the lies they tell are big lies, huge gargantuan lies that are obvious lies. How is it possible that in the wake of the last elections the media could repeatedly says there is no evidence of fraud or irregularities. They are not saying that the evidence is weak. They are not saying that it is too late after the elections to raise all of these issues. They are not saying that that the case has too many holes. They are not presenting counter arguments. They are telling everyone that there is no evidence…none. These are the same people who told us that Trump is a Russian Spy. He is compromised by Vladimir Putin. Keep in mind that the only time that the Robert Mueller investigation team made any public comment during the whole Russia investigation fiasco was to correct media misinformation. 

These people told us that the protests we saw during the summer were mostly peaceful, even as all across the country we witnessed burning cities, rioting and looting. Just as sinister as their attacks on truth, and the spreading of propaganda lies, is what they withhold from the public. The media refuses to tell the truth about Michael Flynn and what really happened to him. They celebrate that this patriot was a political target of the FBI, and the media refuses to highlight the corruption of the judge who oversaw his case. The torrent of violence against supporters of Donald Trump does not matter to our betters in the media. As people get attacked for wearing MAGA hats, the media could care less. They have no interest in those stories because they go against the set narrative 

They made excuses for Joe Biden even as we saw with our own eyes and heard with our own ears as Joe Biden boasted that he threatened to withold aid if from Ukraine if they did not fire a prosecutor he did not like. We read the transcript with our own eyes of Trump’s conversation with the Ukraine President. Yet despite what we heard with our own ears, that they told us that Trump asked the Ukraine President of Ukraine to interfere in the Presidential elections. Then in the weeks leading up to the elections, as stories of corruption broke about Biden family corruption, the media told us it was Russian disinformation, only now to admit that it was true after all. The media smeared anyone who dared attempt to get out the story. 

For crying out loud, these people told us that Trump advised Americans to drink bleach and inject disinfectant into their systems to fight the Corona virus. They told us, and continue to tell us up to this day that Trump said there are good Nazis. Not one reporter ever dares to interrupt Joe Biden whenever he repeats that lie to say the President never said that. This is despite anyone being able to go unto YouTube or other streaming service and view videos of what Trump actually said, but it does not matter. 

They told us that Trump called the Corona virus a hoax when they know that he never did that. All you have to do is go and look at what he said during the rally when he used the word hoax in reference to the corona virus, and you would see that he was attacking the Democrats attempts to politicize the Corona Virus. He called what they were doing a hoax, but none of that matters. Don’t believe your lying eyes and your lying ears.

There are many more stories like this. It is now a pattern of behavior by the media to engage in outright lies, propaganda, and attacking the truth. The  fake news media in this country is the enemy of the people.

You’ve heard of white privilege, here’s Democrat privilege

Oh to be a Democrat! It must be nice.

The spy who…

Representative Eric Swall dated Chinese honeypot for 4 years, a beautiful alleged Chinese spy. Nancy Pelosi knew about it. When questioned about it Nancy Pelosi claimed that Republicans were focused on Swallwell’s relationship with a spy to distract from QANON. What the…Are these people serious. Anyway, dum dee dum dee dee dum dee dee dum dum dum, and she went away humming and whistling along as the media stood in awe at her brilliant answer.

Nothing to see here folks, go on bout your b’ness.   

When he was asked about his relationship with the Chinese honeypot  a couple days ago, instead of addressing the seriousness of the issue, Swallwell just casually blamed President Trump for leaking the information to the media. The media did not ask any probing questions to dig deeper, and find out more. They just let him speak without interrupting him. 

Who cares about a Chinese honeypot possibly compromising a sitting Congressman when you could blame Trump for leaking that information to the press, then treat that as the bigger story. 

Notice how he called it leaking. That person is a leaker, not a sacred whistleblower whom Democrats love to love, and protect.  Thank God for alternative media though. 

The story is not going away. Let’s see what we find out about him and his honeypot.

The powerful Democrat and the spy who drove her

Dianne Feinstein had another alleged Chinee spy as her driver for 20 years…while they were persecuting Trump for the Russian hoax. Folks it is impossible to make this stuff up. When it was revealed that Feinstein had a spy on her staff for 20 years, the media could not care any less. Who cares about an actual Chines spy when we could pushing the Russian hoax. Despite this story being taken up by alternative media, it never gained the kind of traction that needed to gain, too busy pushing hoaxes. That’s the important stuff. No time to address issues about real espionage from America’s greatest foreign threat possibly infiltrating the halls of power via a powerful Senator.

Democrat legislator threatens Trump voters

A sitting Detroit Democrat legislator had a warning to Trump supporters she gave notice:

This is just a warning to you Trumpers.  Be careful! Walk lightly! We aint playing with you. Enough of the shennanigans. Enough is enough! And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay.

She was stripped from her legislative committee membership by the GOP Detroit leaders.

Undeterred, doubling down and defiantly she said: 

“I’m good, I’m ok, I’m not worried. I’m not changing my f*** phone. I’m not going under ground. I’M NOT DOING NONNA DAT. Mind you, I never called anyone out of their names of course unless they’re liars or dumb a****.”

Cynthia Johnson ladies and gentlemen. Democrat! 

The crossed up world of the media and the left

We are living in a truly back to front, upside down world. As the nation becomes more Godless, truth is called lies, lies truth, evil good, and good evil. 

If we do not get a grip as a nation, downhill is the only direction to travel. Only in the warped world of the evil left is it possible to ignore all of the anomalies, irregularities and problems in the last elections and at the same time accuse  President Trump of trying to steal the elections because he is exercising his legal right…his legal right to challenge all of the issues that they say went wrong during the elections. 

The media has blacked out all of the complaints by President Trump and his team, and they repeat in unison that there were no problems with the elections. 

One of the big differences between conservatives and the left is that conservatives know what the left believes. They know their arguments. They are very familiar with how they do business and what their core beliefs are. The left generally does not have the same knowledge of conservatives. They just do not. They know what Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper tells them about conservatives. 

So do not be surprised if after all of these weeks since the elections, the drones  who sit, and without a bit of intellectual curiousity listen to Maddow et al speak, still do not know what the specific claims are that the Trump administration is making. 

For those of you who still have the capability to muster just a little bit of independent thinking and a little bit of inquisitiveness. Here is just a little information for you. 

These things are either true or they are not. If they are true, what should we do? This is just in one of the contested states…just one. 

Here it is:

2,506 felons illegally voted

66,248 under 18 registered to vote

2,423 weren’t registered at all

1,043 used a PO Box

4,926 voted past the registration date

10,315 died before the election

395 voted in two states

15,700 moved out of state before the election

40,279 changed county and didn’t re-register to vote

You may not be convince, but can we please stop with the there is no evidence nonesense? 

The medias is just awful

What President Elect

News Flash!

We do not have a President elect…we may, but we do not as yet. What we have are two Presidential candidates, one the current President of the United States, and the other, the former Vice President/Senator.Love it or hate it, that information provided at absolutely no cost is what we call a fact of life.Thank you!

Attacks on Democracy?

Those many questioning President Trump for contesting the elections, claiming that it is a threat to democracy; it is you who are the danger to democracy. Once again, like you did for the last four years, you are guilty of every bit of malfeasance that you have accused your political opponents of doing. With a complete lack of self awareness you continue to project your own sickening, hatred and intolerance onto others. You then attempt to justify your despicable behavior by claiming that the objects of your scorn are racist, fascist, intolerant etc.

Now here you are, one more time piping up the hysteria over President Trump’s legal right to challenge an election that he claims was rigged. Without an iota of curiosity, you dismiss all of the claims his campaign makes. You are not even interested in looking at the evidence they claim to have. You simply repeat the media mantra of the day…whatever it is.

You are so driven by your hatred that you willingly give up your capacity to think and form an independent thought. You had noproblem claiming that President Trump was a Russian spy, and sabotaging his Presidency when you knew all along that the charge was based on nothing. When the FBI lied to the FISA courts on at least four separate occasions to conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign you were ok with that. You had no problem when personnel were leaking to the press the President’s conversations with world leaders. You even managed to perform some intellectual gymnastics and claim that all of these acts were meant to protect democracy.

As the FBI targeted private citizens for political reasons you cheered because it was all in the attempt to get Trump. All’s fair in love and getting rid of Trump! As the media lied about the President day after day you clapped your hands in approval. When they gave life to every rumor, and accentuated every negative story, as they simultaneously censored favorable reports and good news; you had no problems with any of that.

Your concerns about the institutions of democracy were conspicuously absent as big tech and the media censored stories of Joe Biden corruption. You had no interest as conservative voices were shut out of public discourse, in fact; you encouraged it. Now you dare lecture people about attacks on Democracy because the President is exercising his right under the constitution of the United States to contest what he says was an election fraught with fraud and irregularities.

Please!

The media has no boundaries when it comes Trump

The establishment media is a garbage dump on fire. These people are the most shameless, agenda driven snake oil salespeople that anyone can encounter. The media is filled with a whole bunch of commentators opinion peddlers masquerading as journalists. These people have allowed the left and the Democrat Party to get away with so much over the last few years, it is hard to imagine that they really think they are fooling people.

They demonstrated their contempt for half the nation again two weeks ago. There they were calling people who showed up to a Trump rally “far right.” There was nothing far right about the people who showed up for the rally. They are patriots, they clean up up after their rallies, they are law and order citizens, but the media does not care.

The media goes hunting for rogues in the crowd. They jump for joy when they find somebody with a crazy sign, or otherwise behaving badly, and they point their fingers in glee. See, see a Trump extremist. The media is more interested in incidents of bad behavior by Trump supporters than they are about patterns of violence by the left and the supporters of the Democrat Party, for whom violence and unhinged behavior is par for the course.

The media goes out of the way to identify and label the whole Trump movement as violent, while they make excuses for leftists burning rioting, burning and causing mayhem for over a hundred days in cities all across America.

Couple weekends ago Trump’s supporters turned out for a rally in the nation’s Capitol, and as sure as the sun sets in the west, leftist agitators were there stirring up trouble and violently attacking people whose only crime is that they support Donald Trump. And the media, as they have been for the last four years, has been silent.

Hatred for Donald Trump justifies anything. These are truly, truly sick people!

Fight on Mr. President, says Trump supporters, it aint over yet

So after accusing President Donald Trump of being a Russian spy, a stooge of Vladimir Putin, and then sabotaging his Presidency for three years, based on one of the biggest hoaxes ever perpetrated, Trump is just supposed to trust these people. He is just supposed to accept that he lost the elections, be the bigger man, congratulate Joe Biden and move on into the sunset. 

For as much as the media talks about Trump’s lies, the talking heads who represent the media are some of the biggest liars ever known. It is not just that they lie either. They lie to our faces, telling gargantuan sized, most easily provable lies. We are talking about the sky is green, the grass is blue, Trump told people to drink bleach kind of lies. 

Now as they try to prematurely crown Joe Biden the winner of the Presidential stakes, these lying liars who lie like lying is a drug just expect people to take their word. Everyone is just supposed to accept that their coverage of the election has been fair and above board. Even as people see with their own eyes how pollsters and the media brazenly lied with their polling data, people are just supposed to forget all of that like it never happened.

You have a major Presidential candidate for President of the United States complaining about voter fraud and election interference, but the media is completely uninterested in even looking in to it. The same media that propagated the Russian hoax is now wagging their fingers at Trump for not conceding to Joe Biden. 

Now, let’s be clear. When this is all over Joe Biden may very well be the President of the United States, but that the media would just dismiss the claims of the President simply because they do not like him is just wild. Unlike the Russia Hoax that everyone knew was a hoax from the beginning, Trump and his lawyers are actually presenting what they call evidence of voter fraud. They have affidavits, whistle blowers, evidence of dead people voting, none citizens voting, and a lot of other evidence, but no one is even interested in looking in to it. 

Whether or not the claims of voter fraud is enough to turn the tables and elect Trump is another issue. The major scandal is that news organizations, journalists, people who are supposed to “speak truth to power” have no interest in even looking in to the charges of voter fraud in the world’s oldest Republic. They simply repeat that their is no evidence. 

These people are journalists, which means that they simply sit back and wait expectantly for someone to bring them evidence. They have absolutely no interest in the art and science of investigative journalism because they hate Donald Trump with a passionate visceral hatred. 

This stuff is unbelievable to behold. The media that was silent as people took to the streets and rioted, blocked highways and screamed not my President because these people refused to accept that Donald Trump was elected as President of the United States, now expect him to just accept the media’s declaration that Joe Biden is the President Elect. 

The people who were silent as Democrats impeached the President based on a lie that he asked Ukraine to interfere with the Presidential elections now want the President to “do the right thing.” They had the transcripts of the call, and even as the rest of the country could read the entire transcript with their own eyes, they nevertheless told us not to believe our lying eyes. Believe them! Yes, these people now say that President Trump should accept the will of the people even though at least five States are still in dispute. 

They say he should do it “for the good of the country. He should to it to help the country heal, to bring people together. Just go away and accept your fate says the people who waged one of the biggest propaganda campaigns in the history of mankind against a man simply because they did not like him.

They just expect him to go away without a fight. They had nothing to say when just a few weeks ago Hillary Clinton told Biden that he should not under any circumstances concede to Donald Trump. She said that it could probably take a whole month before we know who actually won the Presidency. The dishonest, lying media who for weeks repeated leftist talking points, saying that it could be months before we know who won the elections, are now telling Trump to conceding to Joe Biden. 

Well Mr. President your supporters are saying to fight with everything that you have. Fight with every weapon in your arsenal and when you have exhausted all of your legal options move on in which ever direction that may be. 

Walk with your heads high Trump voters

If you are a Trump supporter you’d better not be walking around with your head down. Keep your head up! The world has not come to an end. This is important also, remember this; you have nothing to be ashamed of so do not be. Do not let the bullies on the left cower you into silence. In fact this is a time to be even more vocal and begin mobilizing for whatever is next. Again, remember you have nothing to be ashamed of so do not be.

You did not riot on the streets of Democrat cities for the last few months, burning businesses, and violently attacking those you disagree with politically. You are not the ones who incessantly used violence as a tool over the last four year to intimidate your political opponents. It is not one of your Congress people who openly called for her supporters to harass people at theaters, gas stations and supermarkets as the media stood by in silence. Do not give in to the notion that you should walk with your head down because you supported President Trump.

If anyone should be ashamed it is the people who openly support the evil agenda of the radical left. It is the left that has called for defunding the police. It is the left who supports the killing of babies in the womb up to the day before delivery. It is the Left who cannot agree that a baby who survives an abortion should receive the care that any other baby receives at a health care facility. Don’t you dare walk around feeling ashamed and don’t allow people to shame you either.

Let them explain themselves. Let them explain their anti police sentiments. Let them explain sanctuary cities. Let them explain their bail policy that allows criminals back on the streets to terrorize their victims. Let them explain their support for Antifa and the evil racist organization that is black lives matter.

No sir, walk with your head raised high, your shoulders square, and some pep in your step. It is they who have the explaining to do. They hate Donald Trump because of how they feel. They hate Trump because they think they know what’s in his heart. They see themselves as mind readers.

You on the other hand love Trump because of his actions, the things he has actually done to improve the lives of Americans. There is nothing to be ashamed of if you support the emphasis Trump has placed on human/child sex trafficking. If you believe that people should come into the country legally then stand tall. Do you like the deal that Trump negotiated to repeal NAFTA, then why are you letting the bullies on the left intimidate you? America is energy independent for the first time in over 75 years. The VA is fixed! Right to try has been a God sent for many sick people across the country.

Actions speak louder than silly Tweets. Don’t forget that it is Trump who confronted China on their theft of intellectual property, and on trade. It is Trump who has negotiated at least four peace deals, three of them in the Middle East. Whereas Barrack Obama called ISIS a JV team as they wreaked havoc across the Middle East, it was Trump who defeated ISIS. Trump took out the menace Qassem Suleiman as Democrats criticized him for doing it. It is Trump who got NATO to increase their budget by over 400 million dollars and insisted that partner countries continue to meet their obligations. 

Trump’s accomplishments are many. Unemployment dropped to the lowest ever among black, Hispanic and other minorities under this President. Manufacturing has made a comeback in the United States and on and on we could go.

So no! Do not let these vindictive, self-righteous bullies make you think that you have anything to be ashamed of at all. You do not. They are the ones who accuse every one of facism and being Nazis, yet they openly embrace socialism, an ideology under which tens of millions of lives have been slaughtered. They lionize men like Che Guevarra. Let them explain. 

These people have the nerve…

Most audacious however is that while they claim to be morally outraged by Donald Trump, they embrace Joe Biden, a man who makes Donald Trump look like mother Teresa. These people are fakes, hypocrites of the highest order.

So once again Trump supporters, hold your head high. It is you who are on the right side. 

The Democrat machine and their media allies is a wicked apparatus.

Jesus the burden bearer, a Friday devotional

esus associated himself with a band of misfits when he walked the earth. These were the people he chose to be his closest allies, while he spurned the religious leaders of his day. He did not hold a personal grudge against the religious leaders simply because they were religious, but because they should have known better than how they lived their lives, and taught the people. They were hypocrites and and money chasers. Their hearts were not truly seeking after God. They loved the adoration of men and they were filled will with pride.

Jesus choosing of his disciples were the perfect example of what Paul the Apostle later said when he expressed that God chose the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. Among Jesus disciples was a hated tax collector, lowly fishermen, a thief who later betrayed him and a bunch of ordinary men.

There was nothing special about these men, but their hearts were in the right place and Jesus recognized this. Jesus even saw something in the man who later betrayed him, and he knew that it did not have to go the way it did with him. That situation demonstrates how it is possible to make really horrible choices in the best situations.

Throughout his entire time on the earth, Jesus demonstrated over and over again that he had a heart for the lowly, the shunned, the scum of the earth, the outcasts, the rejects of society, the sinners. In fact, Jesus said, they that are well need not a physician. I came to call sinners to repentance.

It is a reciprocal relationship that Jesus wanted to establish with all those who would come to him. He demonstrated it with Zacchaeus, the Samaritan woman at the well, the woman who washed his foot with her tears, and the demon possessed man who he told to go and sin no more.

The reciprocal relationship begins when the sinner acknowledges his sins, looks to God and asks for forgiveness through Jesus Christ, and turns from sin. Jesus on the other hand pours out his love, forgives them, welcomes them, then gives them the grace to live the life that God is calling all men and women to live.

Life changed!

Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes unto the father but by me and he continues to invite people to experience the forgiveness of sin, and life changed that is possible when they trust in him. Come all you who heavy labor and I will give you rest says Jesus. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me and you will find rest unto your souls.

This message is offensive to many. It is narrow minded. To others it is plain nonesense. To those who receive it though it is peace with God.

No one has to believe it. God does not force himself on anyone, but those who do believe will find rest unto their weary souls.Be blessed!

Observing the madness in the age of Trump

The self righteous anti-Trumper

No one takes you seriously when you claim to be so morally outraged by Trump that you cannot vote for him…then in the very next breath, the very next breath, say…that’s why I’m voting for Joe Biden.It’s hardly likely that you even take yourself seriously.Vote for Joe Biden if you wish. That is your right as an American.

Just stop with the moral superiority nonesense.

Sounds more like cognitive dissonance.

Black Lives is a wicked organization

Someone recently described Black Lives Matter, and it’s right on the money:

DisruptiveRebellious

Anti Authority

Atheistic (not just atheistic, but vehemently anti-God and anti Christian)

Marxist

Racist

Evil

Has there been a more dangerous movement in America since the Klu Klux Klan? They are even more dangerous than the KKK though.

No one champions the cause of the KKK in modern day America, in fact; there is no faster way to be ostracized from society than to associate with groups like the KKK. Once upon a time the KKK was millions strong. Today there are just a few thousand of them.

They are quite literally considered as outcasts. No KKK rally gathers more than a few hundred supporters, and the counter protesters outnumber them ten to one. They are anathema! Not so Black Lives matter.

This evil racist organization has the unabashed support of prominent members in our society. Their movement has been embraced by members of a major political party, and they have the support of Hollywood, academia, Silicon Valley, and major corporations.

They wreak havoc in the streets. They push a radical agenda and divisiveness is there modus operandi, and they are destructive to society.

Reject this awful destructive movement.There is nothing good about it.

Know your place black man

50 cent dared to say he is voting for Trump, and Chelsea Handler the white liberal comidienne said that she had to remind Fiddy that he is a black man. She wanted to let Mr. Fiddy understand that “he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.”

Yuh hear dat Fiddy, don’t be influencing all dem black people to vote for someone that the white liberal female does not approve. They black, they should be voting Democrat. Biden is their man.

Chelsea is not alone though. Don’t forget that recently old uncle Joey made it clear to all black Americans everywhere that if they are having trouble deciding between he and Trump, then none of those Americans are black.

Yep. The white liberal massas have drawn a line in the sand. Black Americans better not cross it and decide that they could think for themselves.

That’s not the end of the story with Ms. Handler though, to sweeten the deal she offered to pay Fiddy’s taxes, but that’s not all. To really spice up the deal even more, she made it clear that she is even willing to give 50 the grand prize of them all.

Are you ready for this? If Fiddy changed his mind and votes for Biden, then she’d willing go another round with him. Yest black America, Fiddy gets to have sex with the white liberal goddess if sees the light and casts his vote according to the white liberal lady’s demands.How could he resist that right? No greater prize has ever been offered.

Who will cry for this beautiful youn black couple

Check out this young couple; two beautiful looking people with their whold lives ahead of them. They were the parents of a young four year old boy who they had the privilege and the opportunity to bring up in this world. They will never get to see him grow up to become a man. The young boy will grow up without his parents.You see this young couple’s lives were snuffed out of them reportedly by a young black man.

He allegedly murdered them in cold blood in front of their four year old son. The young boy will have to deal with the trauma of seeing his parents killed right in front of his eyes for the rest of his life. His life will never be the same again. He will have a long, hard, emotionally taxing, mountainous climb to overcome this shocking experience.

So here’s a question. Is the killing of this young couple deserving of the same degree of indignation we see when a black individual happens to be killed by the police? Will Black Lives Matter be showing up at the home of the alleged murderer, and demanding that people “say their names.”This happens at least 7000 times each year.

The number of black men killed by other black men Black men is more than the Hispanic and White men killed combined. Last year about 250 black men were killed by the police, most of the men killed were involved in violent confrontations with the police, about 16 of them were unarmed Remember unarmed does not mean not dangerous.

Is it “deflecting” to highlight this problem, and to suggest that dealing with the issue of violence in many communities where mostly black people live is a much bigger problem to address than police brutality.

We should never ever turn a blind eye to injustice whenever and where ever it occurs. One human life unjustly killed by the police is a tragedy, but perspective is important isn’t it?

Deflecting

Imagine you are an EMT. You get summoned to the scene of a horrific accident. You get rid of the Starbucks coffee you’ve been sipping on for the last hour. It’s been a slow morning, suddenly some excitement. This is why you are an EMT. You know the dangers of the world we live in and you want to do your part to help make it a better place for everyone. 

As you pull out, sirens piercing, and you get more information about the accident you push down on the accelerator even harder. You get to the scene of the accident and you immediately get a sense of how terrible the situation is. It’s worse than you thought! You are shaken to the core by how bad it is, but you do not freeze up. You are a professional, and like the pro that you are; you begin to assess the situation to see where you are needed most. 

There are dead bodies lying all around. Some people are badly injured. Some are bleeding profusely, some are unconscious, others have have broken bones, some are in shock. The scene of the tragedy is really dreadful, but in the midst of all the horror, you also notice that some of the people involved in the accident escaped with some injuries that are not as bad as the others. They definitely need medical help, but in the mean while they can apply some self care, do what they can to ease their situation, and perhaps bare the discomfort until more help arrives.

As you and your team begin applying first aid to those who need it the most, one of the people who is not so badly injured begins to complain that you are not treating the scrathes on his face. Another man walks over to you while you are treating an injured child bleeding profusely on the ground. The man complains that he has a really big bump on his forehead and he needs you to turn your attention to him. He is distracting you as you try to stop the bleeding on the child. You ask the man with the bump on his forehead to step back. He walks over to another member of your team and begins to complain to the technician applying life saving CPR on another victim of the accident. 

As noted before these other people do need medical attention, but compared the other patients that your team has to concentrate are the priority. Losing patience, as you continue to treat the patients who really need your life saving skills, and the badly injured, the less injured people begin complaining that you are ignoring their injuries. They continue to hinder you from doing your job.

You try appealing to their sense of reason by pointing out all of the people who badly need your attention more that they do, but it makes no difference to the people harassing you as you try to do your job. They will not listen and they accuse you of deflecting. They claim that you do not want to help them because of other reasons, and you are just using all of those badly injured people as excuses to avoid helping them. 

Of course this is not a real scenario and it is hard to imagine any thing like this ever really happening, but this can be likened to some segments of black America, but with a slight twist. Many black Americans keep complaining about the lesser injuries, and sometime death that occasionally come at the hands of  the police, and they ignore all of the bleeding taking place in their own communities.

They look at the thousands of dead bodies, the carnage, the chaos and the mayhem caused by other black people taking place in their own streets, and they don’t seem to be bothered by those issues as much. The only thing that matters to these black people is when something unfortunate happens with the police, or some act of racism.

When sober minded people attempt to point out that anger over police misconduct is understood, but it is not as big a problem as black people think it is, too many black people get even angrier. When people point out that addressing the problem of black on black violence is an issue that is exponentially larger, and that needs more urgent attention than police brutality; too many black people accuse those pointing  this out, of deflecting. And the vicious cycle continues.

Facts do not matter to them. What matters more than anything is basking in, and maintaining the posture of victim. 

Oh well, that’s just deflecting. 

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Supreme Court hysteria

It true that a few years ago Mitch McConnell stated at the time that the reason he would not bring President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee for a vote was because it was an election year. He stated that he believes in an election year, a Supreme Court nominee should be selected by whoever is the incoming President, and that the Senate would then either confirm or deny whoever that nominee is.

The truth is that was never the reason for holding up the nominee. It was all about politics. They simply did not want to confirm President Obama’s nominee. They should have had the courage at the time to either say that, or say that they would do it after the election without giving the excuse that they did.

The could have simply brought the nominee before the Committee and not confirm him, but they did not do that. The tactic they used may have been bad politics, but it was certainly within their authority to do what they did.

Shift forward to the present. To witness Democrats’ reaction to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and President Trump’s intent to fill her seat before the elections; one would think that it is the crime of the century (even worse than Trump’s treasonous act of selling out to Russia). On top of all of that the same Republican Senate committee who refused to vote on President Obama’s nominee, now plan to rush through Trump’s nominee just over the course of six weeks.

Well you make not like it, but elections have consequences.

Since the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh Democrats have been threatening to pack the court should they regain the Senate, in order to shift the balance of power in their favor on the courts. These are the same people who also want to abolish the Electoral College, and get rid of the filibuster. They want to grant statehood to Washington D.C., and change many of the rules that have Governed the political process since the country’s founding.

Right about now might be a good time to remind people that, like so many of the awful policies and practices in this country; politicization of Supreme Court nominees is a Democrat Party innovation. There was a time when the Senate Judiciary committee always voted on whoever the President nominated to the Supreme Court. They committee would either confirm or reject the nominee. 

The nominees always got confirmed, regardless of their judicial philosophy. That tradion was blown up, and came to an unceremonious end just over 30 years ago when Democrats went on a seek and destroy mission against the nomination of Judge Robert Bjork. 

They dragged his name through the mud. They accused him of wanting to turn back the hands of time. They claimed women’s right would be threatened, black people would see their civil rights progress turned back, and many other unfounded claims. Democrats torpedoed his nomination, and so began the politicization of Supreme Court nominations. A few years later they did the same with Judge Clarence Thomas, but were unable to stop him from being confirmed.

This has been the model that the Democrats have used since then in order to stymie the process of confirming any nominee to the Supreme Court selected by a Republican President. Then a few years ago, in order to ram through President Obama’s District Court nominees, they changed the committee rules, got rid of the filibuster (a favored tactic that they themselves have abused in the past) and confirmed a number of judges to the courts over the objections of Republicans. They were warned that their tactics would come back to haunt them. 

Keeping all of this in mind, why would the Republicans not exercise their constitutional duty to confirm a nominee for the Supreme Court sent to them by the President, and leader of their party. It is true that Mitch McConnell held up President Obama’s nominee and refused to immediately vote on his nomination, but once again; that’s called the consequence of an election.

The people elected a Republican Senate to act as a check and a balance to the power of the executive branch at the time. That is the way that the constitution designed the system to work between the three equal, independent branches of Government, to guard against the abuse of unfettered power by any one of those branches. Sometimes it works in one party’s favor, sometimes the other.

Lindsay Graham said it best, “Democrats chose to set in motion rules changes to stack the court at the Circuit level and they chose to try to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life to keep the Supreme Court seat open. You reap what you sew.”

Deal with it Democrats!
