“Please don’t cry.” – Sen. Ted Cruz to Former Speaker of the House John Boehner

FoxNews.com reports that

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz doubled down on his response to former House Speaker John Boehner after he told the Texas Republican to “go f**k yourself” in a leaked audio recording.

“I think he was probably recording at nine or ten in the morning so obviously he had too much wine that day already,” Cruz told the Daily Caller on Saturday. “This guy is a little unhinged.”

Cruz on Friday mockingly tweeted that he wears Boehner’s “drunken, bloviated scorn” proudly alongside a clip from an upcoming CBS News interview with Boehner in which he calls Cruz a “jerk” and accuses him of “making a lot of noise” but not being especially productive in Congress.

“The Swamp is unhappy,” Cruz tweeted. “I wear with pride his drunken, bloviated scorn. Please don’t cry,” the lawmaker joked, referencing Boehner’s reputation for appearing publicly emotional at various points throughout his career.

The ex-speaker has taken several shots at Cruz, including while recording his audiobook when he reportedly told Cruz to “f—” himself in several off-script moments.

In the CBS interview, Boehner says he doesn’t like to “beat anyone up” but he’d make an exception for Cruz.

“Perfect symbol, you know, of getting elected, making a lot of noise, draw a lot of attention to yourself, raise a lot of money, which means you’re gonna go make more noise, raise more money,” Boehner told CBS of how he views Cruz’s political career.

Boehner, an Ohio Republican who served as House speaker from 2011-2015, has been making the interview rounds promoting his book, “On The House: A Washington Memoir,” which comes out next week. Boehner represented Ohio’s 8th Congressional District from 1991-2015.

Cruz made a joke of it at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida in February, saying, “John Boehner made some news. He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible. To which my response was, ‘Who’s John Boehner?'” according to The Hill.

Cruz on Saturday noted that the “lead insult on the back on the back of the book is a different insult he directed at me.”

He seems to have a bit of an obsession,” Cruz said.

Asked whether he planned to write a book about Boehner in response, Cruz said plainly, “I don’t anticipate writing a fortune cookie about him.

Here is some information you may not have known about the Former Speaker of the House, courtesy of sourcewatch.org, from a blog I wrote in March of 2013

In 1981 Boehner served on the board of trustees of Union Township, Butler County, Ohio. In 1984, he served as president of the township board of trustees.

Boehner served as a Ohio state representative from 1985 to 1990. In 1990, when U.S. Rep. Donald “Buz” Lukens (R-Ohio) was caught in a sex scandal involving a minor, Boehner challenged Lukens in the Republican primary and defeated the incumbent, while also upsetting the district’s former representative, Tom Kindness, who Boehner declared had abandoned his district to become a lobbyist. Boehner went on to victory in the 1990 general election and began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives the 102nd Congress.

He was a member of the Gang of Seven, a group of seven freshmen Republicans who assailed the Democratic leadership with accusations of corruption and arrogance over the misuse of the House Bank. According to a 1992 San Francisco Chronicle article the Gang “set the match to the bank scandal that has now engulfed the House, blackened its leadership and sparked a ‘spontaneous political combustion’ that many analysts say will fuel a record turnover in Congress.” (San Francisco Chronicle, 3/30/02)

Boehner told the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “I came as a reformer. But when people in charge don’t want to reform – the only way…is revolution.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer, 2/15/93)

The banking scandal involved 355 members, Democrats and Republicans, writing 8,331 overdrafts to the bank. The Gang pounced on the issue and forced the Democrats into a corner and eventually led to the tidal wave Republican Revolution of 1994.

Boehner came to Congress as one of the most pro-business, anti-government members in 1990. He advocated a flat tax and abolition of whole government agencies including the Department of Education and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Boehner quickly rose to the fourth highest position in the Republican leadership – Republican Conference Chairman – after chairing Newt Gingrich’s 1994 run for the Minority Leader post.

Boehner was on of the principal architects of the Contract With America. He also championed the 1996 Freedom to Farm Act.

When Newt Gingrich resigned his post as Speaker in the wake of the GOPs loss of seats in the 1998 election Boehner’s leadership post was challenged by J.C. Watts, the only black Republican congressman. Boehner lost to Watts 121-93.

…Boehner was elected House Majority Leader on February 2, 2006, following Tom DeLay’s departure because of a criminal indictment.

…According to the Washington Post “From illegal immigration to sanctions on China to an overhaul of the pension system, Boehner, as chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, took ardently pro-business positions that were contrary to those of many in his party. Religious conservatives — examining his voting record — see him as a policymaker driven by small-government economic concerns, not theirs….. [He opposes] a tough illegal immigration bill that passed in December [2005] with overwhelming Republican support over Boehner’s opposition. One provision in the bill would mandate that every business verify the legality of every employee through the federal terrorism watch list and a database of Social Security numbers. For the bill’s authors, the measure is central to choking off illegal immigrants’ employment opportunities. To business groups and Boehner, it is unworkable.” Feb 12, 2006

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

Moderate Republicans , like Cryin’ John Boehner, have been a barrier to Republican victory for as long as I can remember. Like Quakers, Establishment Republicans seem to believe that passive resistance and reaching out to their sworn enemies, friends, is the way to defeat those who oppose you.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.

You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.

Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?

They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.

They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.

He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.

He could not be bought.

And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Cryin’ John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never-Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.

He refused to take their money and play their games.

He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.

Cruz is right, Boehner is a long-time member of the Washington Political Elite, better known as The Swamp.

All of those Republicans, who are still on Capitol Hill, and who worked against Former President Trump during his tenure in office and who still stand against him to this day, needed to be voted out of office in the 2020 Midterm Elections.

Perhaps then, American Voters will have placed in office Republican Representatives and Senators who actually want to work for and serve US…instead of themselves.

Trump Tells Belligerent CNN Reporter, “You Don’t Have the Brains You Were Born With”…#TRUTH

EWAA0qlXYAIjIVn

https://twitter.com/toddstarnes/status/1252063692981764096

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump announced Sunday evening that the United States had passed a major coronavirus testing milestone, telling reporters that 4.18 million Americans have now been screened — more than France, the U.K., South Korea, Japan, Singapore, India, Austria, Australia, Sweden and Canada combined.

Speaking at the daily White House coronavirus briefing, the president unboxed a swab testing kit and touted the new testing technologies that could fight the pandemic, even as he cautioned that some states “don’t know where they are.”

Trump then read at length from a piece in The Wall Street Journal praising him for implementing new partnerships with the private sector, and “vivifying the American way in action, once reluctantly aroused.”

“It was hard to get it aroused, and it is hard to get it aroused, but we got it aroused,” Trump commented.

Faced with criticisms that he had idled while the coronavirus spread, the president pointed out that Fox News’ Bret Baier observed that Democrats’ February 19 presidential debate had not mentioned coronavirus at all. Rhetoric on coronavirus from Democrats, Republicans, and the media has changed dramatically since January.

At the same time, Trump said Republicans were having “very good negotiations” with Democrats on expanding funding under the Paycheck Protection Program [PPP], and could have an agreement as soon as Monday. The stimulus legislation established a $350 billion fund for small businesses that was depleted last Thursday.

“We’re looking to help hospitals, rural hospitals as part of the package,” Trump said. “We could have an answer tomorrow.”

Democrats have held up the passage of new funds for small businesses. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., justified the delay on Sunday by saying she wanted more funding for testing and hospitals — uncontroversial demands that even left-of-center commentators have pointed out that Republicans never opposed.

..During the briefing, Trump went on to tout what he called “bipartisan” efforts that have succeeded in blunting coronavirus deaths in the country — as well as his Jan. 31 decision to block most travel from China, which Democrats, journalists, and some experts opposed at the time.

“We would’ve had millions of deaths,” Trump said. “It looks like we’ll be about a 60,000 mark, which is 40,000 less than the lowest number thought of.”

In a testy moment, CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang repeatedly interrupted the president and argued that he had implemented his Jan. 31 travel ban on China too late. Trump moved on from the question after the reporter admitted she didn’t know how many coronavirus deaths had occurred in the U.S. at the time of the ban. (The answer is zero.)

Another reporter then asked about Trump supporters toting Nazi flags, in an apparent reference to a recently debunked viral photograph. Queried separately about the news that his former adviser Roger Stone may soon head to prison, Trump slammed what he called “human scum” at the FBI who repeatedly violated surveillance rules to monitor his campaign and pursue criminal charges.

“You people are so pathetic at CNN,” Trump said, after reporter Jeremy Diamond pushed Trump on his previous praise for China’s president amid the coronavirus outbreak, shortly after the U.S. inked a major trade deal with the country. “That’s why your ratings are so bad. You’re pathetic. Your ratings are terrible. You’ve got to get back to real news!”

These past three plus years, the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, has proven that he is unlike any president that anyone can remember.

Sure, there are comparisons to the great Ronald Reagan, whom I helped elect in 1980 by casting my very first vote as an American adult.

Just like Trump, Ronaldus Magnus got his zingers in on the Democratic opposition and the Press.

However, that was 40 years ago and things have changed.

Technology has made great strides in the field of communication.

Now, almost every American is walking around with a personal computer in their pocket which we refer to as our “phone”.

The old media, the daily newspaper, is dying out, replaced by the new or “social” media, which Americans access several times during their usual day.

The Main Stream Media, especially the cable news channels, have found themselves competing with “citizen reporters” like myself and my fellow writers at http://www.spartareport.com and other websites, Twitter, and Instagram who utilize the new media to present their views about issues and events which are important to average Americans.

Besides the fact that everyone has an opinion and a cell phone, the other factor driving this phenomenon has been the death of objectivity in the Main Stream Media and the role which they have taken as the Vanguard, Propagandists, and Protectors of the Far Left Democratic Party and their national political figures.

Hence, the repeated attacks on President Trump since he announced his candidacy before the 2016 Presidential Election…attacks which have continued through his presidency, as exhibited every day through the crude disrespectful behavior toward the President by MSM Reporters in the Daily Coronavirus Task Force Briefings.

The problem that the reporters are not dealing with very well is the fact that THIS president fights back.

And, in a battle of wits with President Trump, they are woefully overmatched and wind up getting embarrassed.

Or, as President Trump told Jeremy Diamond of CNN, after the reporter insulted him,

“You don’t have the brains you were born with.”

Moonves Out at CBS, Virtue Signaling In

moonves_04.jpg

I think Les Moonves is the most highly overrated person in television. – Donald J. Trump 1/15/2004

FoxNews.com reports that

CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves has resigned after at least 12 women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct in a pair of New Yorker articles authored by Pulitzer Prize winner Ronan Farrow.

In a statement released Sunday evening, CBS said that Moonves would depart his position as chairman, president and CEO “effective immediately.” COO Joseph Ianniello was announced as president and acting CEO “while the Board conducts a search for a permanent successor.”

The network also announced that it and Moonves would donate $20 million to organizations that support “that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace.” The $20 million would come out of any compensation Moonves is due to receive following the conclusion of an ongoing investigation into the allegations against him.

Moonves’ future at CBS came into question in July, when Farrow published an expose in the New Yorker detailing allegations from six women. This week, multiple news outlets reported that Moonves was negotiating a possible exit with independent directors of CBS’ board.

Then on Sunday, the New Yorker published claims against Moonves by six more women. Some alleged he forced them to perform oral sex on him, forcibly kissed them, exposed himself to unwilling participants and put the careers of those that rebuffed his advances in jeopardy.

One of the women, Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb, reported her accusations to Los Angeles police last year, but they weren’t pursued because of the statute of limitations. She said that Moonves, while an executive at the Lorimar production studio in the late 1980s, pushed her head into his lap and forced her to perform oral sex.

At another time, she said an angry Moonves pushed her hard against a wall. When she resisted later advances, she began to be frozen out at the company, she said.

“He absolutely ruined my career,” she told the magazine.

Another woman, Jessica Pallingston, said Moonves had forced her to perform oral sex on her first day working as his assistant at Warner Bros. productions. Other women told the magazine of unwanted touching or advances by Moonves.

In a statement to the magazine, Moonves said the “appalling accusations” are untrue, but he acknowledged consensual relations with three of the women before he started working at CBS.

Ironically, Moonves was once a prominent voice in Hollywood’s growing “#MeToo” movement. As the initial New Yorker article reported, he helped found the Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, which is chaired by Anita Hill.

The organization Time’s Up, which fights accusations of sexual misconduct, said the women had made “bone-chilling” accusations against Moonves. “We believe them,” Times’ Up said in a statement on Sunday.

Time’s Up said the CBS board has a responsibility to rid the company of a toxic culture toward women.

“Remember that the world is watching,” the statement said. “We will accept nothing less than full transparency of the investigation’s findings, a commitment to real change across all levels of CBS management and no reward for Les Moonves.”

Moonves is the first network executive to lose his job over revelations related to the “#MeToo” movement, which was sparked by reports about movie producer Harvey Weinstein in October 2017. People like Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose and Kevin Spacey have lost work over allegations that came to light in the months that followed.

Moonves’ departure does not mark the first time “#MeToo” has touched the Tiffany Network. Rose, a former host of “CBS This Morning” and “60 Minutes” contributor, has been accused of sexual misconduct by 27 women, 14 of whom worked with him at CBS. He was fired by CBS and PBS late last year.

The network is also investigating Jeff Fager, former CBS News chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes,” on charges that he condoned a hostile atmosphere to women.

For those of you who are too young to remember Anita Hill, whom the above article references, her claim to fame happened this way…

Shortly before the U.S. Senate was to vote on his (Clarence Thomas’) nomination to the Supreme Court in October 1991, Hill charged Thomas with sexually harassing her when she worked for him at the Department of Education and then at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), by asking her out and forcing her to listen to obscene talk.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, remembers it well.

They (The Democratic Party Hierarchy)made up the sexual harassment business with Anita Hill when it looked like Thomas was gonna be confirmed. That was a plan, for those of you that were not old enough or paying attention back then, that plan was hatched by the wife of Illinois senator Paul Simon.

I mean, they totally ginned up this sexual harassment business on Thomas, and it totally took over the hearings, and it nearly derailed Thomas’ nomination. And I remember I was wall-to-wall on that. From the moment it happened I was wall-to-wall on it and I didn’t stop until it was beaten back. This was before Fox News. This was before widespread cable news, widespread talk radio. It was vicious, it was Bork-like. And it was made up.

It actually turned out that there were inconsistencies in Ms. Hill’s story and it did not help her case that she followed Clarence Thomas from job to job.

The Main Stream Media and the Hollywood Liberals swallowed Anita Hill’s story hook, line, and sinker with HBO even making a movie from her point of view which aired in 2016.

Isn’t it funny how things have come back to bite all of the self-righteous Liberals in the Entertainment Industry right in the gluteus maximus?

From the moment that the revelations about Hollywood Producer and star maker Harvey Weinstein to Charlie Rose to Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw and now, Les Moonves, the warm feelings of schadenfreude have brought a smile on my face.

Since Donald J. Trump first announced his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States of America, the MSM and the Entertainment Industry have been accusing President Trump of being the biggest Lothario since Adam took a bite out of an apple offered to him by a naked woman.

Their desperation to bring down a sitting President transcended the bounds of broadcast journalism to the point to where broadcast news outlets now resemble a revolutionary faction vying for power in Venezuela.

This desperation has led them to publish unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own still hurt feelings over their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

The funny thing is, that during all of those decades of Liberal Self-righteousness, CBS, NBC and other Liberal Show Biz Organizations were condoning sexual harassment and intolerance in their own corporate confines.

That’s right.

The same bunch of “morally superior” East and West Coast Liberals, who have been insulting and talking down to average Americans, from their positions of notoriety and power, simply because we believe in Traditional American Faith and Values and we would not swallow the Kool-aid they we offering during the 2016 Presidential Campaign and elected Donald J Trump as President, instead of the Queen of Mean, knew all along about the debauchery going on both behind closed doors and out in their open in their places of business.

It takes a special sort of hypocrite to sit in judgment as their have with all of their sexual harassment baggage neatly hidden away…or so they thought.

And now as I wrote earlier, it has all come back to bite them.

Les Moonves is the latest in this #MeToo Virtue Signaling Purge.

However, he won’t be the last.

Pass the popcorn and Diet Coke, Mr. President.

Until He Comes,

KJ

CBS Posts “Fake News” Story About Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Sanders holds the daily briefing at the White House in Washington

FoxNews.com reports that

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back Wednesday night against a report that she was considering leaving her role, saying she “loves” her job and is “honored” to work with President Trump.

Sanders was replying to an earlier CBS News report that both she and deputy press secretary Raj Shah have considered leaving their positions in the administration.

“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future,” Sanders asked in a tweet. “I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me.” [as seen above]

Both Sanders and Shah are weighing future options, Fox News has learned, which may or may not include their departures from the White House.

Sanders has talked about departing sometime after November’s mid-term elections and although Shah’s timetable is unclear, it could possibly come sooner – although both could remain in their roles, too.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah is considering leaving his role, a new report claims.  (AP)

Sanders recently returned from a lengthy trip abroad with Trump which culminated in the president’s historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore Tuesday morning.

The daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sanders managed her father’s presidential campaign in 2016 before joining Trump’s. She was later promoted to White House press secretary following the July 2017 resignation of Sean Spicer.

Shah, who was promoted to the deputy press secretary position last September after working as the Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Communications Director, did not immediately respond to the conjecture about his future. 

So, Fake News strikes again.

The Main Stream Media has gotten so blindingly desperate to bring down a successful President Donald J. Trump that they have targeted his staff through the continuation of their strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie after unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own still hurt feelings over their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has, without a doubt, wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

And now, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has to deal with their boorish behavior after hours since they can’t get the best of her in the Daily Press Briefings.

I can remember my late Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) bringing home the National Enquirer, the Star, and even the Weekly World News from the grocery store , to read with his morning coffee.

Compared to the anonymous source-driven lies that have continuously been peddled by the Main Stream Media during the tenure of our 45th President, The Weekly World News’ legendary stores about “Batboy”, in retrospect, now seem like Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalism.

The good news is that the majority of Americans, no matter what the Democrat-heavy polls continue to say, are still not buying the B.S. that the MSM is selling.

President Trump figured out a long time ago will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he ever have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is the Main Stream Media refuses to end their conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point of insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump by us “rubes” here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also faced the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who, for the past year, has treated them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump was speaking, only to find out that they had been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he was trying to forward that day.

He also refuses to play nice with them when they slander him and everyone around him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

Please refer to Acosta’s asinine behavior at the North Korean Summit and the just treatment which he received from President Trump.

Additionally, The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Principled reporters, such as the late Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin, turned up the heat on the MSM, by providing an alternative source through which Americans could receive news, unfiltered by those in the Halls of Power.

Unfortunately for the MSM , as 2016 Presidential Campaign and the first year and a half of President Trump’s First Term have shown, and as I have documented along the way, Americans have become our own “reporters” thanks to the “New Media”.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes appears daily through  live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, like the little Dutch Boy, the MSM does not know which hole to plug, in the leaking dam, first.

Just like the Internet Trolls, who invade Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, in order to disrupt conversation and call attention to themselves, the MSM, through the creation of their own facts, has permanently damaged their own credibility, quite probably beyond all repair.

Because, to put it quite simply, once you torque off the American Public, you never get them back.

Just ask the Dixie Chicks….and the NFL.

Biased MSM Advocates for Clinton, Accuses Trump of Calling for Violence. Really? Puhleeze.

Goin-Gold-NRD-600

The “perpetually aggrieved” have their knickers in a twist…again.

CBS News’ New York Affiliate  reports that

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is stirring up more controversy after suggesting that pro-gun rights advocates could stop Hillary Clinton.Trump said at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Tuesday that if Clinton gets to pick federal judges as president, there is nothing that can be done to protect the right to bear arms.

But then he adds without elaboration that maybe supporters of the Second Amendment could figure out a way.

“By the way if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” Trump said.

CBS2’s Dana Tyler reported the Trump campaign played off the comments as a misunderstanding.

“It’s called the power of unification – 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump,” the statement read.

Trump himself seemed unaware of the controversy in an interview shortly after the rally, but he repeated that his point was that Second Amendment advocates are a powerful lobby. Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani also came to Trump’s defense.

“I think you are talking about — I’m not sure because I haven’t’ heard this question — but I think you’re talking about the power of people that are in favor of the Second Amendment, and they have tremendous political power,” he said.

When asked about Democrats’ statements equating the remark to condoning violence, Trump said: Oh no, no. This is political power.”

Giuliani added, “I mean, this is the Clinton trick book that you fall for all the time.”

Trump senior communications adviser Jason Miller told CBS News’ Major Garrett the accusations the GOP nominee was calling for violence are “completely ridiculous.”

“Donald Trump was obviously talking about American voters who are passionate about their Second Amendment rights and advocating they use that power at the ballot box,” Miller told CBS News. “The Clinton campaign is desperate and is obviously throwing all sorts of outrageous charges. I am surprised so many reporters are falling hook-line-and-sinker for what is obviously a ridiculous charge.”

The Clinton campaign said in a statement, “This is simple — what Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”

The Secret Service said it “is aware of the comments made earlier this afternoon.”

The National Rifle Association, the gun lobby that has endorsed Trump, came to his defense. The group wrote on Twitter that “there’s nothing we can do” if Clinton is elected while urging voters to defeat her in November. 

The Second Amendment provides a constitutional right to citizens to own guns.

During the event, Trump said falsely that Clinton “essentially wants to abolish the Second Amendment.” Clinton supports some new restrictions on gun ownership, but has not advocated overturning the amendment.

However, Clinton finds herself embroiled in a new controversy after the father of Omar Mateen, the gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, showed up to her rally on Monday in Kissimmee.

Seddique Mateen made it sound as though he had been invited to the rally, but it appears he was simply on a Clinton mailing list because he’s a registered Democrat.

“Clinton is good for the United States versus Donald Trump,” he said.

On Tuesday, Clinton toured a health care clinic in Miami and called on Congress to step up funding for Zika.

“I would very much urge the leadership of Congress to call people back for a special session and get a bill passed,” Clinton said.

A new NBC News/SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll reveals that Clinton holds a 10-point lead nationally over Trump — 51 to 41 percent.

How curious.

According to a recent Rasmussen Poll, Trump was within four point of Clinton.

CBS News’ poll couldn’t be slanted in Clinton’s favor, could it?

…Does Bill Clinton have a “little black book”?

The National Broadcast News and Liberal Cable News Operations have taken their bias to a new level in this Presidential Campaign.

Examples include…

Ignoring the disparity in attendance between trump’s Campaign Rallies and those of Clintons – Trump is attracting 10-15,000 per appearance. Clinton is attracting a few hundred (if she is lucky).

Disparaging every word that comes out of Trump’s mouth –This his solid Economic Plan, which was very well received by average Americans. Instead, they are waiting breathlessly for Clinton’s Economic Plan to unveiled next week,, which will be an extension of the failed economic policy of Barack Hussein Obama.

Trumpeting every poll that shows Clinton to be ahead in the race – At the same time, the MSM ignore the weighted sampling of more Democrats and Liberals than Conservatives in every single one of them. In spite of the fact that, according to Gallup, Conservatism is still the majority political ideology in this country.

Ignoring Clinton’s obvious health issues – Her “short circuits”, “bobblehead doll imitations”, hole in her tongue, inability to walk without assistance, and huge black assistant, who carries a loaded hypodermic needle with him, have ben noted and documented in the “New Media”, leading some medical experts to theorize that she has Parkinson’s Disease.

In 2004, the Media Research Center reported that

Journalists at national media outlets are more liberal and less conservative than nine years ago, and while in 1995 they were upset that the media were too critical of President Clinton, they are now disturbed that the media are going too easy on President Bush, a just-released survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found. Five times more national outlet journalists identify themselves as liberal, 34 percent, than conservative, a mere 7 percent. The poll also discovered that while the reporters, editors, producers and executives have a great deal of trouble naming a “liberal” news outlet, they had no problem seeing a “conservative” outlet, with an incredible 69 percent readily naming the Fox News Channel.  

Can you even imagine what the actual percentage of Liberals in the MSM is now, 12 years later?

I’m pretty sure that the percentage of Conservatives left in the Main Stream Media, rivals that of white guys in the NBA.

Probably less.

As I have related in previous posts, I was a Radio News Director during college from 1978-1980, with a staff of 20 student reporters, who each received credit for producing and delivering a 5-minute newscast, once a week, on our College Radio Station.

I can remember sitting in the lecture hall of the (then) Memphis State University Journalism Building, listening to Dr. Williams, whom we all swore did the first newscast of KDKA, America’s first radio station, in 1920.  The class was “Introduction to Journalism” and Dr. Van Williams was telling us that the ” key to being a good journalist was objectivity”.

The Main Stream Media firmly believes that it is their job to serve as a Propaganda Arm for the Democratic Party, no matter how costly their programs might be to the American People.

President Ronald Reagan once famously said,

It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.

Which explains the gross overestimation by “Broadcast Journalists”, such as Brian Williams and Andrea Mitchell, of their own intelligence and the potential popularity and believability of their reporting, through obviously-subjective coverage aimed at a gullible audience.

Unfortunately for the Main Stream Media, in this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by the MSM, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself. A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Clinton Presidency.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for CBS and the rest of the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes, the Democratic Party, and the Clintons, in particular, is well-documented and has led to Americans taking their jaundiced reporting with a grain of salt.

Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

…not as long as Americans stay informed.

The 2016 Presidential Election: MSM Propaganda VS Social Media and the “Speed of Reality”

19300001338456131339201169760propaganda:  the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person. ( “Media’s Use of Propaganda to Persuade People’s Attitude, Beliefs and Behaviors”, web.stanford.edu )

Last night, Realclearpolitics.com reported the following story…

Donald Trump hits the media, particularly CNN, ‘the Clinton News Network,’ at a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Penn. Monday night.

“We have a media that is so dishonest,” Trump said. “These are among the most dishonest people you will ever, ever meet.”

“We are going to punch through the media,” he said. “We have to.”

Trump tonight:

TRUMP: These are among the most dishonest people you will ever, ever meet. These people — you know, I’ve had days where I have said, ‘Boy, this was a great day. I’ll look forward to seeing it tonight or tomorrow and it’s brutal.’ And I say, ‘What happened?’

We are going to punch through the media. We have to! The New York Times is totally dishonest. Totally dishonest. The Washington Post has been a little bit better lately but not good. By the way The New York Times, which is failing badly. I call it ‘The Failing The New York Times.’ Every story that they write is a hit job. I could do the greatest thing in the history of the world. I could come up with a cure for the most horrible disease in the world and they give me a front-page horrible, horrible story. The New York Times is very dishonest but it will be out of business soon. I hope. It will be out of business. It will. Really dishonest reporters. Not all of them, but most of them.

And CNN. CNN is like all Trump all the time. All Trump all the time. You walk out of an interview and you say, ‘that was a good interview’ and then you get killed for the rest of the weekend. So they are so biased toward Crooked Hillary. You know they call it: CNN, Clinton News Network. CNN. Clinton News Network. Totally dishonest. But hopefully a lot of people aren’t watching it.

Don’t worry, Mr. Trump. We aren’t.

Now that the Democratic National Convention is over, Americans have returned to their normal viewing habits. Which means that Fox News is once again kicking the Clinton News Network’s tail., as the stats from Friday, July 29, 2016 clearly show…

Total day: FNC: 1.659 | CNN: 941 | MSNBC: 893 | HLN: 209

Primetime: FNC: 2.373 | CNN: 1.187 | MSNBC: 1.451 | HLN: 280

As I have written before, thanks to today’s 24-Hour News Cycle, Cable News Network Reporters have tossed broadcast journalism out the window in favor of political activism.

And, with the undisputed fact that the overwhelming majority of cable news reporters are flaming Liberals, this means that  news favorable to Hillary Clinton and detrimental to Donald J. Trump will be what Americans are most likely to see when they turn on CNN, MSNBC, and the News Programs of the Broadcast Channels, CBS, NBS, and ABC.

Fox News continues to lead in the ratings for the cable news channels because, quite simply, they are more “fair and balanced” than CNN and MSNBC.

Conservatism remains the political ideology of the majority of Americans.

Try as they might, Liberal reporters and pundits cannot force Americans, especially those of us in “the Red States”, to believe the propaganda that they are peddling.

Even, when a push poll by CBS/The New York Times proclaims that The Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has taken a lead after the  Police Line-up that was DNC 2016.

We would rather believe our own eyes.

For example, after cancelling a stop at a furniture maker in Cleveland, Ohio, according to Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit,

CowG64-W8AA-HL-…Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made a stop Sunday to speak at Imani Temple Ministry.

Less than 100 people were there to see her preach from the pulpit.
(The event was in Cleveland not Columbus.)

th5RM6A420 Meanwhile, Trump spoke to a packed house at his Cleveland Rally.

 

 

 

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as CNN, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

The War Against Christianity: The Only “Angels From Hell” are “Lucifer” and His Demons…and They are Not the “Good Guys”.

American Christianity 2This past week, several of my fellow Christian American Conservatives became very concerned over the fact that leading Republican Presidential Primary Candidate Donald J. Trump, revered to a passage of scripture as being from “Two Corinthians”, instead of “Second Corinthians”.

Heck, I was just glad that he was referring to the Bible, instead of the Quran, as the current occupant of the White House does, every chance he gets.

Christian American Conservatives have bigger issues than Trump’s misspeaking to worry about.

Christanpost.com reports that

One Million Moms, a nonprofit family-interest group, has managed to convince the manufacturer Sleep Number to stop funding CBS’ new comedy series, “Angel from Hell,” starring Jane Lynch, which, it says, disrespects Christianity. 

“The previews alone can make believers sick to their stomachs with the blasphemous content including crude humor, foul language and distasteful dialogue,” says an alert posted on the website of One Million Moms, an organization founded by the American Family Association.

The series, which premiered Jan. 7, airs on Thursday evenings. The show is about an angel named Amy, who acts as a guardian for Allison, forming an unlikely friendship. It focuses on “a holier-than-thou character who is anything but that,” the family interest group says.

“The network also cast children in scenes that are extremely inappropriate, such as the angel using foul language in front of them and then joking that she never promised to be G-rated,” the group adds. “The premiere also included the angel hiding liquor in the children’s clothes and saying, ‘My booze!’ followed by a little boy saying, ‘That’s so cool!’ Almost every scene included the angel drinking alcohol from a flask, even on Sunday, and once at a bar. Not to mention the angel rides on a wrecking ball while busting up a concrete angel statue.”

Networks like CBS portray a false image of religion “once again,” the group says, calling the show “another attempt to distort the truth about people’s faith.”

As a result of the alert, Sleep Number is pulling its sponsorship of “Angel From Hell” immediately, the group’s website says. “Thanks for your feedback. We’ve contacted our Marketing team and confirmed we’re not planning on running any additional ads with this program at this time,” Sleep Number wrote on its Facebook page.

The Media Research Center agrees with One Million Moms’ criticism.

“This is just the latest volley in Hollywood’s war against faith,” Dan Gainor, VP of business and culture for MRC, tells Fox411. “Rather than simply deny the divine, ‘Angel From Hell’ seeks to denigrate it. They picked ‘Glee’ veteran Jane Lynch, who hates conservatives, to portray a disgustingly foul and perverted ‘angel.'”

He compared CBS’ show with the FOX television series called “Lucifer.” “With the arrival of the show ‘Lucifer,’ where the devil is portrayed as suave good guy, this is just the Left Coast’s latest attack on religious faith,” Gainor says.

In “Angel from Hell,” Amy is portrayed as a mysterious and eccentric individual who reveals herself to be an angel. She has a crazy persona and can make unbelievable predictions that come true. It is suggested that Amy has been watching Allison since childhood. Allison is a dermatologist who likes to multi-task and is a perfectionist. She thinks that Amy is nuts, until she discovers that Amy knows everything about her and starts believing her crazy predictions.

While we are on the subject of “Angels”, here is an article from CNS News, about the program mentioned earlier, featuring the Fallen Angel, previously known as “The Lightbearer”.

A number of faith-based and conservative watchdog groups are panning Lucifer, a new Fox television series that will premiere on January 25 at 9 pm Eastern Standard Time, saying there’s “nothing redeeming” about a show that  glamorizes Satan.Fox’s website describes the series’ main character, Lucifer Morningstar, who is depicted as a “devilishly handsome” demon: “Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, the original fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A. where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub.”

Actor Tom Ellis, the son of a Baptist pastor who plays Lucifer, described his character in a recent interview: “He looks like James Bond- or perhaps a villain out of Jaguar’s ‘it’s good to be bad’ commercial – and has the morals of a debauched investment banker (albeit with a little more heart.)

“The show certainly is not a big theological debate,” Ellis added. “More than anything, I’d say this show is a story of redemption.”

But critics say the graphic murder and blasphemy in the official trailer prove that Lucifer is anything but redeeming.

The pilot was condemned by the American Family Association’s One Million Moms project not only for featuring violence and scantily-clad women, but also for its attempt to “glorify Satan as a caring, likeable person in human flesh.”

“We were not able to preview this show, but we know enough about to be concerned,” Melissa Henson, director of communications and public education at the Parents Television Council, told CNSNews.com.

“Besides the dark theme, we expect there will be high levels of violence and disturbing sexual content. Clearly it is inappropriate for kids and families even though it is airing in prime time,” she said. “From what I can see, there’s nothing redeeming about this show at all.”

“The very fact that it could be on a major network without serious questions being raised with regard to advertisers and the like tells you where the culture has gone, to a certain extent,” Fr. Robert Sirico, president of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, told CNSNews.com.

“I urge believers to be calm, because part of the marketing strategy of these companies is to incorporate the kind of opposition they can get from believers who would find this offensive and thus call more attention to the project.

“The second caution is that this show seems rather superficial with its constant use of one gag about the devil. It doesn’t seem like it’s a serious reflection on evil, on the capacity of human beings to betray their highest values.”

“I’m reminded of what C.S. Lewis puts in the words of his devil in the Screwtape Letters, that the real danger in confrontation with evil and the world is when people don’t believe that there is evil. So I don’t think we’ve hit the bottom quite yet, because at least they’re talking about things spiritual,” Sirico said.

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, told CNSNews.com that he’s not too concerned that Lucifer will do any serious damage to Christians’ faith.

“It strikes me as sci-fi. It’s theater of the absurd for me. It doesn’t look like something I’m going to get exorcised about,” he said. “You’d have to be a moron to look at this show and come to the conclusion that the Bible is wrong.

“I’m more worried about docu-dramas like the ones Oliver Stone does that confuse viewers,” Donohue added.

Noting that “believers and non-believers alike have questions about, and interest in, Satan and the demonic,” Dr. Alex McFarland, author of 17 books on Christian apologetics, told CNSNews.com in an email that “the Bible warns that as history moves toward the point of Christ’s return, demonic activity will persist and even increase (I Timothy 4:1, II Timothy 3:1-13).  The Bible also warns that Satan’s intent is for the spiritual detriment of people.

“Satan is called ‘the god of this age’ (II Corinthians 4:4) and a spiritual deceiver of people (II Corinthians 4:4, and 11:14).  Revelation 12:9 says that he ‘led the whole world astray.’

“Jesus calls Satan ‘the enemy,’ and says that hell was made for him and the other demons (Matthew 13:39, Matthew 25:41). We know that Lucifer’s coup attempt in heaven failed, and that earth is caught in the crossfire as fallen angels still try to make war against God.”

But for Christians, the story has a happy ending, he pointed out.

“The panorama of Scripture is clear about Satan’s doom and destiny: God wins, Satan loses.”

Amen, Dr. McFarland.

Christians know this. We’ve read the back of The Book.

And, that’s a good thing, because the President of the United States of America and his Secretary of State, even while our Best and Brightest were held captive, continued to acquiesce to the wishes of the Rogue Islamic Nation of Iran, Giving them not only their billions of dollars back, but throwing in 1.7 billion dollars of American Taxpayer (that’s you and me, kids) Money, while continuing to hone the timeline set for them to have the capability to build the means of the nuclear destruction of the United States of America  in a “Gentleman’s Agreement, which Iran has already broken.

Meanwhile. in Iraq, Christians and innocent Muslims continue to be killed by barbarians who have sworn to hoist their flag above our White House.

Nationally, America’s economy remains in the tank, with more and more Americans choosing to drop out of the work force, in disgust and humiliation. 37.2% of America’s Work Force, to be exact.

A lot of these “drop-outs” are Americans over 50, like myself, who are being intentionally ignored, because of our age, which seems to matter more than our business acumen and wealth of experience.

While, as the articles I presented demonstrate, the very fabric of our society is being torn asunder, through the dissipation of morality and the glorification of evil.

Satan, Vampires, and Zombies…oh, my!

And, of course, legalizing marijuana has no consequences. So what if elementary school kids are being caught selling their parents stash? And, DUI accidents are up?

Yep. No consequences at all.

What we seem to be heading for is not simply an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so will it fail here.

Just as amorality and licentiousness led to the destruction of the Roman Empire, so, if unchecked, will it lead to America’s.

The galling thing is the fact that, even the, as gallup.com recently reported, American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”

We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.

Whether is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us. However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey and I thank God that through His Grace I was given a Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.

We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another.

Now, more than ever, we have to keep THE MAIN THING, THE MAIN THING.

The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)

Colbert to Politicize “The Late Show”

thLVJ0UCMZI can feel the smarmy, “I’m-smarter-than-you-are” hipness already, boys and girls. Can’t you?

According to deadline.com,

Further illustrating how little difference there will be between CBS’ Late Show host Stephen Colbert and Comedy Central late-night host Stephen Colbert, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be Colbert’s guest during his second week hosting on the CBS program.

While some are speculating it’s the first time a current Supreme Court justice has been a guest on a network late-night show, it’s not so new for Colbert. In January 2012, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens was a guest on The Colbert Report, talking about campaign finance.

The Breyer booking also is not such a surprise if you watched CBS’ Sunday Beltway show yesterday, during which you saw about half a dozen ads for the launch of Late Show With Stephen Colbert, suggesting the program is going to have a political bent. And, of course, Colbert in July told reporters attending TCA he plans get into politics on Late Show to a greater degree than have his broadcast competitors because it’s in his DNA. True to his word, he’s not only booked Breyer to guest on Monday, September 14, but will chat with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon three nights later and Dem White House hopeful/Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders that Friday. And, of course, Colbert already had  tweeted that GOP White House hopeful Jeb Bush would be a guest when the host makes his debut taking over for David Letterman on Late Show, on September 8.

At TCA, Colbert complained he was counting the days until he debuted on his CBS show, so anxious is he to take a whack at Donald Trump on the air; Colbert called his web videos about the leading GOP candidate just so much “dry-Trumping.” Turns out, Stephen Colbert’s late-night persona as host of CBS’ Late Show isn’t going to be so different from the character he played on Comedy Central, the improv actor-turned-comic told reporters at the TCA Summer Press Tour.

When asked if viewers would finally get to see the real Colbert when he debuts on September 8, Colbert responded, “I don’t think anybody would have watched that old show if they didn’t know who I was,” he said. “Because that guy was a tool.” Playing his conservative gasbag character on The Colbert Report, “I had the excuse that I didn’t mean it, but I’m here to tell you I meant a lot of it. … I even agreed with my character sometimes. My hope is when people see me on the new show they will say ‘Oh wow, a lot of it was him the whole time!’”

How avant garde. How sophisticated. How…boringly Liberal.

Late Night Talk Shows first appeared on the scene in 1954 with the arrival of The Tonight Show . They really became popular with the debut of a young Midwestern guy by the name of Johnny Carson, when he took over the hosting duties of the Tonight Show, in 1962.

Each host of the Tonight Show, before the current one, brought something unique and entertaining to the table. Steve Allen brought both
comedy and musical ability. Jack Paar brought urbane sophistication. Johnny Carson brought masterful comedic timing and  a Midwestern “Aw, shucks” feel to the show. Jay Leno, was the “Everyman”…the wisecracking guy next door, whom you could find on the weekend with his head stuck under a car hood.  And, Conan O’Brien brought…err…umm…never mind.

Being the “old codger” that I am, I remember Johnny Carson very well.  Johnny had a natural, easy-going Interview Style, which allowed him to talk to anyone on his show, from a 7 year old to Movie Stars.

And, while Carson skewered BOTH political parties in his monologues, he never brought up his political affiliation on the show. He felt that if ehe invited politicians on the show, that would turn off his viewers, as they tuned into his show at the end of a long, hard workday, to be entertained, NOT PROSELYTIZED TO.

That would come later, as the Programming Geniuses at NBC and CBS turned The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and the Late Show With David Letterman into Propaganda Machines for the Democrat Party.

Letterman took his duty as the mouthpiece for the sophisticated, urbane Democrats up in the Northeast Corridor so seriously, he even attacked Former Republican Vice-Presidential Candidates Sarah Palin’s children in a monologue, which he later was forced to reluctantly apologize for, due to the blistering blowback which CBS received from average Americans in the Heartland, burning up the phone lines in protest.

Letterman eventually became a national joke on his own, through his indiscretion involving a female staff member.

This yearning by Colbert and the rest of the Liberals at CBS in New York City to seduce the “Young and Hip” into watching their show, by basically turning a late Night Talk Show into a Political Interview/Satiric Commentary Program, will ultimately be this latest version of the Late Show’s downfall.

If people want to watch someone suck up to the Democratic Party, they can tune in to the Nightly News on the three Broadcast Channels, CNN, or, if they are really desperate, MSNBC.

They are programming for a very select audience.

American Liberals only make up 24% of our population.

Some of them, actually work for a living and have to get up the next morning.

Others are quite content to remain Low Information Voters.

And, the rest…are on Facebook.

Until He Comes,

American Liberals and Radical Islam: A Naive Infatuation…Born of Cowardice?

Islam cartoonThe attention of the world, America included, continues to be focused on the followers of Mohammed

It seems like Europe’s Liberal Governments have finally figured out that the radical adherents to Islam, actually are immersed in a jihad, and actually intend to kill all the “infidels” they can.

Unfortunately, the veil has not yet lifted from the eyes of American liberals.

And, it won’t, while the current Administration remains in the White House.

America’s Liberals are both in love with and deathly afraid of Radical Muslims, living their lives, consumed by a bizarre mixture of naive infatuation and cowardice.

For example…

CNSNews.com reports that

Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson said that when the Duck Dynasty show began on A&E in 2012, the video editors, based in Los Angeles, would often take out the words “in Jesus’ name” from the family prayer scene because they thought the name “Jesus” might “offend some of the Muslims or something.”

Robertson said he advised the show’s producers, in West Monroe, La., that they and the entire world kept time, the “year of Our Lord,” A.D., Anno Domini, based upon Jesus Christ and that it would not hurt to “throw His name in there from time to time,” and he noted that this example represented, the “spiritual warfare” that is always occurring.

Robertson made his comments during an interview with reporters for Sports Spectrum TV. He first related that video editors of Duck Dynasty initially added bleeps to the audio to suggest there was profanity when there was, in fact, no cursing by the cast members.  Robertson got the editors to stop making those insertions.

He then recounted, “The other thing was when we prayed, we said, ‘In Jesus’ name. Amen.’ Now, I don’t have any verse that says you must always use or pray in the name of Jesus but it’s a very good idea, I think.  So they were just having me saying, ‘Thank you Lord for the food, thank you for loving us. Amen.’”

“So I said, why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name’?” recalled Robertson.  “They said, ‘Well, those editors are probably doing that and they just think, you know, they don’t want to maybe offend some of the Muslims or something.’”

“I said, let’s see now, what year is it?” he said.  “They said, what?  I said, what year is it? They said, well, it’s 2012. I said 2012 AD. Anno Domini, the year of Our Lord. I said, you Hollywood cats are counting time by Jesus just like I am. “

“I would think out of all the people that walked planet Earth, if we’ve all decided in America here to count time by just one of them, Jesus of Galilee, then I don’t think it hurts to throw His name in there from time to time,” recounted Robertson, who is an elder at the White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La.

“Your calendar’s based on it,” said Robertson. “They said, we never thought of it like that. I said, duh, give me a break. So I notice now, every once in awhile they leave it [name of Jesus] in there. “

“But you have to remember, it’s spiritual warfare,” said Robertson.  “You have people with — what do they say — no moral compass. It ain’t there. So, I tell people, be patient. Just be patient. We’re working on it. We just have to do it. They’re the ones that, they own the network and they’re filming the show. We signed a contract with them, okay, and it’s a work house.”

“But people have to understand, the people of God have to understand that you have to be patient,” said Robertson.  “You don’t turn that ship quickly. It’s a big ship. A lot of depravity, a lot of heathen, a lot of the evil one. He is entrenched in the United States. So you’re not going to turn it like shoo! You know what I’m saying?”

Spiritual warfare, indeed. And, all done in the name of “religious accommodation”.

The Washington Times reports that

Duke University has decided to reverse its plan to sound the Muslim call-to-prayer from a chapel bell tower on campus after receiving a wave of backlash from Christians who called the plan unfair.

“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students,” said Michael Schoenfeld, Duke’s vice president for public affairs and government relations, a local CBS affiliate reported. “However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”

The university had intended to allow the Duke Muslim Students Association to chant the call to prayer — called the adhan — on Friday from the Duke Chapel bell tower.

Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life, explained that the call “connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation,” CNN reported.

The plan was swiftly rejected by religious groups.

Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, wrote on Facebook: “As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering and beheading Christians, Jews and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism. I call on the donors and alumni to withhold their support from Duke until this policy is reversed.”

Mr. Graham’s message was shared nearly 60,000 times.

“When did Christians end up being the bad guys! Political correctness is going to destroy this country,” Nancy Kain Walls responded. “God help us.”

“I have a feeling that separation of church and state in this country only applies if its Christianity,” wrote Cindee Parker. “Any other religion is free to do whatever they wish.”

“It is a CHAPEL not a mosque,” wrote Merrie Spencer Rancourt. “Duke was founded as a Methodist university. If Muslims want to have a call to prayer, then they should purchase the land and build a tower, just like Methodists built the Chapel.”

As Rev. Graham stated so eloquently, Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 75% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Liberalism, as a political ideology, is only embraced by 23% of Americans, per gallup.com.

Christianity, on the other hand, as I just stated, is the Faith of 75% of Americans, again, per gallup.com.

You Libs are betting on the wrong horse.

I’ve read The Book.

I know Who wins.

Malia and the Mexican Munchkin Migration: “For the ‘Children'”

illegal immigrant gang bangersPresident Barack Hussein Obama is hosting a very special event in The People’s House  tonight.

The Daily Caller reports that

Two activists with the group Mi Familia Vota Education Fund will be honored as “Champions of Change” at a special White House ceremony.

Fernanda Zaragoza-Gomez, 19, a Colorado Mi Familia Vota canvasser, and Steven Arteaga Rodriguez, a Texas activist with the group, are both “DREAMers” who began their activism careers after applying for and gaining Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program established by Obama to provide living and working status for undocumented young immigrants.

The activist group, which has offices in six states, works for the goal of “expanding the electorate” through “direct, sustainable citizenship, voter registration, census education, GOTV and issue organizing in key states.”

Mi Familia Vota’s board of directors includes labor leader Eliseo Medina, who said in a 2010 speech that immigration reform will create a long-term progressive “governing coalition.”

“My father was deported and I never saw him again before he died,” honored activist Zaragoza-Gomez said in a statement. “I will keep working with Mi Familia Vota to grow Latino voter participation and push for commonsense immigration reform so that one day, other families won’t have to be separated, like I was from my father.”

While the White House is teaming with law enforcement officers, no arrests are expected to be made Tuesday.

The Daily Caller previously reported that Valerie Jarrett held a handful of secret meetings with illegal immigrant activists.

Is the Mexican Munchkin Migration a result of these activists meeting with Valerie Jarrett?

I have caught some flack over originating the term “Mexican Munchkin Migration”.

I love children..really, I do. Over my 55 years, I’ve had one of my own and have helped raise three step- sons. I’ve now got a 6-year-old grandson, whom I went swimming with on Saturday. Heck,  I have even taught Sunday school and vacation Bible school.

So, what am I doing, being mad at “kids”?

I guess, it’s because of two prominent news stories.

In the first story, 16-year-old Malia Obama, the daughter of the President of the United States, is working on the set of the new CBS series, Extant, starring Halle Berry as an astronaut on a solo space mission, who comes home pregnant.

E.T. phone home.

I know that she is simply there because CBS wants to suck up to their fallen messiah, Barack Hussein Obama., and she can’t help it that her dad is the worst President in United States History.

However, it seems like a flashback to the French Aristocracy, when the 16-year-old daughter of the President of the United States has a job and millions of Americans do not.

Perhaps they teach Television Production at that swanky private school, which she and her sister attend

The second story involving children (and I use the term loosely) is the continuing story of the Mexican Munchkin Migration, the pouring over of our Southern Border by tens of thousands of illegal aliens from South and Central American countries who are mysteriously arriving without their parents.

As I have reported before, these  illegal aliens are being housed wherever we can stick them.

The Obama administration is shipping tens of thousands of illegal aliens, all supposedly unaccompanied minors, to states across our country, using our tax dollars to feed transport house, and clothe them in an operation being kept so secret, that the Main Stream Media News Organizations are refusing to cover it.

Per the great Michelle Malkin, in an article posted on nationalreview.com,

A source tipped me off last week to a curious occurrence: It seems that two planeloads of illegal aliens were recently shipped to Massachusetts. The first reportedly landed at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford. According to my tipster, approximately 160 illegal immigrants arrived on that flight and stayed nearly a week before being transferred to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) site and then released.

The second flight reportedly was diverted from Hanscom to Boston’s Logan Airport this past weekend. I am told that both Massachusetts and New Hampshire officials were on hand. I reached out to Hanscom AFB for confirmation but did not receive a call back by my deadline.

Question: How many other military bases are stealthily being used to redistribute, house, process, and release illegal border crossers?

What we do know for sure is that the Obama administration already has converted several other military bases across the country into outposts for tens of thousands of illegal aliens from Central and South America.

From what I have seen of the pictures of these children, a bunch of the little darlings look like Mexican Gang-Bangers to me.

All tattooed and no place to go.

So, with no job skills, that means that Uncle Sugar will take care of them.

Boys and girls, Uncle Sugar’s bankroll is our tax money.

That’s right. Obama is bringing all of these illegal aliens, who have no skill sets, up here to “take care of them”, as the rumor that is intentionally being spread throughout South and Central America, infers.

By the way, did you hear that when they got here, they started complaining about how the free food, which we were serving them, made him sick to their stomachs?

That’s gratitude for you.

Oh. And, United States Border Patrol Officers, who have been helping with the effort of warehousing these children down on the border have been sworn to secrecy as to what they have seen.

Let me try to wrap my head around this.

The president’s 16-year-old daughter is working on the set of a television program for CBS in a blatant conflict of interest, for a corporation who calls their news reporters “broadcast journalists”.

“Objective News Reporting”, my hindquarters.

Meanwhile, millions of Americans are unemployed, trying to figure out how to make ends meet  in a stagnant economy.

In the early 20th century, when Russian Vladimir Lenin led the revolution which overthrew the Czar, ushering in a Marxist Government, which turned out to be just as corrupt as the Czar’s, he did so on the back of the Bolsheviks, a bunch of thugs, who were just the kind of expendable trash an aspiring political leader needs to lay down their lives for a successful revolution.

So the question I have is this: Are all of these young, unaccompanied, minor, illegal aliens here for the purpose of being Obama and the Democrat Party’s new “Bolsheviks”?

Perhaps.

As far as Malia’s job at CBS goes, well…every revolution needs useful idiots and there are perks which come with being the daughter of Dear Leader.

But, don’t worry Americans. After all, it’s “‘for the children'”.

Until He Comes,
