Know who your friends, enemies are

One of the campaign issues Trump sounded a bullhorn on, at least to evangelicals, pastors and churches, was getting rid of the Johnson Amendment.

That is the one burdening pastors and pulpits under political restrictions to the first amendment, by using 501 status as a lever against them. Holding them hostage you might say. Also placing restrictions on churches. Well, seemed popular didn’t it?

But over the years, so many have become programmed and indoctrinated to this policy. Like a lot of liberal theology, it becomes normalized. No excuses, plenty of complacency.

That’s where it is comes time to know who are your friends and who are your enemies, And so often the latter are closer than you think.

Hundreds of religious groups call on Congress to keep Johnson Amendment

Harry Farley Journalist 05 April 2017 | Christian Today

Nearly 100 religious groups are urging Congress to keep the ‘Johnson Amendment’ which limits churches’ political activities.

President Donald Trump has vowed to repeal the law which blocks ministers from endorsing political candidates from the pulpit or religious organizations from donating to either party. Many Republicans back him and argue the amendment infringes on religious groups’ free speech.

But 99 different groups have written to oppose the move.

‘The charitable sector, particularly houses of worship, should not become another cog in a political machine or another loophole in campaign finance laws,’ they write.

The strongly worded backlash comes from across the religious spectrum from The Episcopal Church and Baptist groups to Catholic, Jewish, Islamic and Hindu movements.

‘Current law serves as a valuable safeguard for the integrity of our charitable sector and campaign finance system,’ [they] say in a letter to top members of Congress.

Here they come, in the name of ‘protection.’

Or basically all your liberalized arms of churches. We know how to interpret that. Many are the proud who call for boycott, divest, and gov’t sanction actions toward Israel.

Funny, they never seem restrained at all in pushing the progressive political line in churches. That, of course, was never really restricted. We see no applied restrictions on black or leftist churches. They don’t have to worry.

Though even speaking about abortion, and protecting life, has been deemed political and too taboo for prime-time pulpits. Except if you want to protect baby killing, that’s okay.

So now they reveal who they are. Take note. They will stand and defy the action we want. Just as the sanctuary cities stand in defiance to the law and will of the people. Or should I say much like the activist, Sanctuary Churches? Get the idea? Or let them preach Climatology from pulpits. No, that is celebrated. Does that not illustrate the blatant hypocrisy of what they are lecturing us about?

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Really Stupid News Report

RSNR is news you only wish was fake. But, sadly, it is not.

The prodigy of obnoxious spew, Lena Dunham , now says she never had an abortion but wishes she had, apparently so she could talk about it. She really did say that.
Fox News

Lena Dunham said on the latest episode of her podcast that she wishes she’d had an abortion to fight the “stigma around this issue.”

“Something I’ve thought about a lot is the fact that there is stigma around abortion,” Dunham said on her podcast “Women of the Hour” December 14.

The “Girls” creator recounted visiting a Planned Parenthood in Texas several years ago where a young girl asked her to join a project where women share their stories of abortion.

“I sort of jumped,” Dunham said. “‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion.”

It was then, Dunham said, she realized “Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department.”

She added, “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

Whoa…Someone in left of stupidville, please top that. I’ll be here waiting.

But then I would never refer to Lena Dunham as “unblemished” in any way.

I think she is proof that evolution has now reversed course.

The Left: hypocrisy is thy name

I always stand prepared to be outraged at the depth of hypocrisy on the left. Then I am not really. But this issue is deeper than that. I’ve come to believe there are two kinds of hypocrisy at work. There is a standard blatant hypocrisy and then there is a more sinister, fundamental hypocrisy. The latter is what I see more and more of.

The election highlighted it. During the debates before the election, there were all the calls of Trump to accept the results of the election. All those now discredited polls had showed Trump losing and Hillary the unchallenged winner. It was obvious they said. Media had pointed out daily that there was no chance for Trump to win. They asserted that the election was not based on a popular vote, whether you like it or not, but on the electoral system. That system favors Clinton, they said. They told us it was all about getting over 270 in the electoral college.Again, that would put Hillary in the White House and makes it albeit impossible for Trump to meet that daunting uphill task.

Then there was Larry Sabato going from network to network telling us there really was no way for Trump to win. He would not say zero chance but he gave him very little chance. There were all those polls, which never seem to put Hillary down by much. They mostly had her with around a six point lead in states. Closer to election it was 3 or 4 points. (I know I am generalizing but it doesn’t matter — they gave her a heavy advantage)

So everywhere they could, they were looking for concessions from Trump. “Will you accept the results of election” system? Trump just refused to play their submission game. Hillary even said she was outraged saying that, for the first time in history, we have someone unwilling to say he would accept the results. At the time, I thought it would be ironic if he won and Dems refused to accept the results. But they kept repeating it was Trump who would not accept results and the rules, as they were laid out.

Then we had the election and people were surprised. First, surprised by the results; then by the denial and refusal to accept the results as they happened. Media did report it because they really had no choice. When AP declared the winner, they could not disagree. But almost immediately it became about the popular vote.

Democrats said we don’t know the final tally of the popular vote, and it went from there. They became obsessed with the popular vote count. Before the election, they said that regardless of popular vote count the results would be determined by the electoral college. So much for that.

Now that we have the results, this fits with all their other hypocrisy. They really don’t care about that; it doesn’t bother them. However, when you notice how rooted hypocrisy is in their DNA, you see the bigger problem. It is who they are, say one thing do another.

They make a big issue about something — digging in their heels — until it is inconvenient for them to hold that position. Then they turn on a dime to support the opposite position. That’s just the way it is with the left. They are always prepared to be hypocrites because it doesn’t matter to them. Their blatant hypocrisy means nothing to them because it is a fundamental tenant of their ideology, politics rules to the left. They will do and say anything to justify their political position at the time. (subject to revision)

This is the same type of fundamental hypocrisy we see in their foreign policy positioning. They were against warring mentality. Democrats stood for Libyan intervention and then Benghazi, right up to the minute they had to take responsibility for it. Then they were AWOL about it.

All along, Democrats played with the notion of Russian involvement and sorted ties to Russia. We heard these claims from everywhere. Hillary supporter. and confident, Mike Morell took to the editorial page calling Trump an unwitting agent of the Russia federation. Charges were fierce. They even accused Trump of encouraging espionage.

“It’s pretty clear you won’t admit that the Russians have engaged in cyberattacks against the United States of America, that you encouraged espionage against our people, that you are willing to spout the Putin line, sign up for his wish list, break up NATO, do whatever he wants to do, and that you continue to get help from him, because he has a very clear favorite in this race,” Clinton said to Trump at the third presidential debate in October. — Politifact

Putin had also blamed Hillary for intervening in their election and stirring dissent afterward, a subject completely lost in the media. Yet Obama and his cohorts had been dabbling in other countries’ elections throughout both his terms, even in Israeli.

They went all-in behind the rise of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere. Has Obama even visited Egypt since the coupe stabilized the situation? No, sort of odd considering he started out his apology tour with a Cairo speech.

Here starts the big story: blame Russia for the election results. Which is really funny because Dems claim Russians’ objective was to influence the election and undermine the integrity of our system. Mission accomplished. Democrats certify that Russia did influence the outcome, despite lack of proof. Since the election is over, given the results, Dems claim our electoral college system is not so great. Undermine the integrity of our election? Mission accomplished. How many ways can one challenge an election?

The very thing Dems accused Russia of trying to do, they willingly did themselves. No one can undermine our process as well as Democrats, when they set their minds to it. They embarked on a recount program and questioned the legitimacy of the electoral college. They tried to undermine that system by influencing the electorates, to get them to switch allegiance from Trump.

But Obama previously mocked the Russian geopolitical threat. Obama promised Russia and Putin he would be more “flexible” after his last election. Putin is still collecting.

If all Russia was trying to do was undermine the integrity of the process, then count Democrats in for that. But earlier they stood on the platform of integrity, declaring our example to the world of peaceful power transfer and our long established history of accepting election results — whether we like them or not. Scratch that!

First NYT reported:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said on Friday that despite Russian attempts to undermine the presidential election, it has concluded that the results “accurately reflect the will of the American people.”

The statement came as liberal opponents of Donald J. Trump, some citing fears of vote hacking, are seeking recounts in three states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — where his margin of victory was extremely thin.

In its statement, the administration said, “The Kremlin probably expected that publicity surrounding the disclosures that followed the Russian government-directed compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations, would raise questions about the integrity of the election process that could have undermined the legitimacy of the president-elect.”

But wait, Democrats were all about undermining the legitimacy of Trump even as a candidate. It was a personal thing to Obama, who declared Trump was unqualified from the presidential podium. Hillary and her operatives questioned Trump on nuclear codes.

“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” it added.

They “stand behind the results?” Well, that is until they don’t. Democrats started a hashtag #AuditTheVote. Which is it, they stand behind the resuts or they don’t?

Independent Journal Review

Obama’s counterterrorism and homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco told reporters on Friday:

“We may have crossed into a new threshold and it is incumbent upon us to take stock of that, to review, to conduct some after-action, to understand what has happened and to impart some lessons learned.”

Added White House spokesman Eric Schultz at the daily press briefing:

“This will be a review that is both broad and deep at the same time.”

“Obviously, you can imagine a report like this is gonna contain highly, you know, sensitive and even classified information….[We’ll] make public as much as we can.”

So now they aren’t sure they will disclose the results. But isn’t doing an investigation an attempt to reassure the public and restore credibility in our system? Yet they let it be known, beforehand, that they are going to selectively report the results. Uh?

First Obama had claimed that he did not want to get involved in presidential election politics. Now he goes all in to investigate presidential election, questioning foreign involvement in our election process. See how this Hypocrisy thing works? First Obama lectured, and mocked, Trump on questioning our rigged system or the outcome of our election as ridiculous. Now he is the chief tin-foil hat in the process questioning the integrity of our election.

But then this is the same president who is claiming his administration is scandal free, too. I guess there is time enough to start one more scandal over the results of the election.

Funny how before the election, who cared? But we had how many hackings all over our government. One report is anyone who ever worked in government has had their personal information stolen. Did we hear Obama’s outrage about that? How about Democrats’ outrage calling for us to do something about it? We do know nothing stopped Obama, who could have taken action on any one of these hacks. But yet, he hasn’t. (at least that we know of, and we probably would know if they did)

Obama now tees up a Russia conflict for Trump, when he would do nothing on cyber warfare before. And he now warns Trump about the immediate “near term” North Korea threat. So all problems become elevated to red alert when Trump is sworn in. Media to follow suite. But hypocrisy? — Not a problem.

Hillary Clinton: the pro-choice candidate

Are you ready for Hillary Choice 10.0?

Hillary and her campaign knows how to talk to “white, college-educated suburbanites” under 30 from middle income families… or any other ssubset of voters they want to target.

But they just can’t figure out how to talk to Louisianans who lost everything, who come from almost every demographic. That’s a heartless, calculated political hack.

But she knows how to talk to people in Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Hollywood, or with the Rothschilds to raise money. She has that language and message down pat. Choosing between 100K dollar a plate fundraiser and visiting Louisiana…. that is a no-brainer for Hillary.

So that is the kind of person Liberals and Democrats want in the White House picking winners and losers in the economy? (what Democrats/progressives do)

Hillary’s choice is failed

See, it all comes down to choices and priorities. Hillary shows us all the time which are more important. She chose lying over the truth on Benghazi. She chose a private server she could control over the government archive system. She chose to call the Benghazi victims’ families liars.

After lying about Benghazi, she said “What difference at this point does it make?”

She chose to coordinate “pay for play” with the Clinton Fundation for official US business. She chose deleting records and emails. She chose aligning with BLM over fallen cops and threats to police. She chooses open borders and sanctuary cities over national security. She chose censorship over free speech.

She chose her Wall Street connections and hedge fund owners over the people, She chose Huma Abedin and her Saudi connections over America’s interests. She chose not labeling Boko Haram‎‎ a terrorist group. She chose the bad Iranian deal. She chose to support Muslim Brotherhood as an ally. She chooses gun control over self defense. Hillary chose putting companies and miners out of business.

Hillary chooses lying over the truth almost every time she has a choice. She chose standing up a consulate in Benghazi. She chose ignoring security requests. She chose the side of a rapist over the brutalized rape victim. She chose laughing and demonizing a 12 yr old rape victim. She chose the baby-killing agenda and defending Planned Parenthood at any cost. She chooses teachers’ unions over parents’ choice for schools and education. She chose taking and charging hundreds of thousands for speeches, even from a charitable organization that helps youth.

She chose to attack victims of Bill Clinton’s “bimbo eruptions.” She chose breaking rules and ethics at the State Dep. She chooses elite fundraisers over flood victims in Louisiana. Now she chooses to label the entire right, anyone opposing her, as racists. Hillary is just a walking, talking, choosing machine.

Hillary is the definition of the wrong choice.

RightRing | Bullright

I have a story for you: a couple from Arkansas goes to Washington…

Bill Clinton got super rich, and his “bimbo eruptions” (er victims) literally got the shaft. What’s wrong with that? But that isn’t the whole story.

Bill did the dirty. Hillary and Bill attacked the victims as bimbos, trailer trash and threatened them. Drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park and you never know what you will get. Bill was impeached by the people’s house, not for his sexcapades but for lying to judge. He was disbarred.

They made a fortune off their career. Money literally rolled in, still does. Hillary had her Secretary of State appointment, touting women’s rights, then she cashed in big time.

Now Bill and Hillary want back in the White House.

Hillary and Bill are running around the country to campaign on reproductive rights for women, fair wages and equal treatment of women. Hillary “broke the glass ceiling.”

So Hillary lectures on Women’s Rights, misogyny and discrimination of women, especially regarding their reproductive organs and work place. We have to put her in the Oval Office because she’s a women, or else we will be called names and discriminating against, well, rapists. They are out campaigning for the vagina vote, pandering as usual.

Her claim is that it’s her turn and the coronation went without a hitch. Now its a matter of getting the nasty misogynists and bigoted discriminators out the way. After all, they know who they are. Her other claim is that her opponent is unfit, and can not to be trusted. He does not have the temperament to be the President, she says. She claims he’s misled and fooled people into voting for him. One of her main themes is to wisely set a good example for our children. She said she “wants to write the next chapter in American greatness.”

Sorry, there is no punch line.

Well, are you getting the message, America? But that is only one chapter in the story.

Churches to pay for abortions

Obama Administration Forces California Churches to Pay for Abortions

On Tuesday, the HHS Office of Civil Rights upheld a California abortion mandate that requires churches in California to pay for elective abortions.

The Obama administration had opened an investigation after churches filed a lawsuit against the regulation last October, seeking protection under the Weldon Amendment that guarantees conscience rights.

The administration claims that it found no violation of the Weldon Amendment and therefore is terminating its investigation without further action.

In 2014, the California Department of Managed Health Care reclassified abortion as “basic health care” under the Affordable Care Act and required all insurance plans in the state—including those of churches—to cover surgical abortions.

John Legend: Trump Supporters are Like People Who Allowed Slavery to Happen in 19th Century

by Daniel Nussbaum – 15 Jun 2016 | Breitbart

Musician John Legend attempted to put Donald Trump’s popularity in historical perspective in an interview Tuesday, appearing to compare those who support the presumptive GOP presidential nominee to people in the 19th century who allowed slavery to continue without realizing it was an evil practice.

“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive,” Legend told Variety at the publication’s TV Summit in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.”

The ten-time Grammy Award winner, a staunch backer of Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, was at the event to discuss the WGN television series Underground, which centers on a group of slaves who escape a Georgia plantation via the Underground Railroad. Legend is an executive producer on the series.

“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country,” Legend told Variety. “I’m sure people in the 1800s didn’t think they were evil people, but they allowed an evil institution to last for quite a long time.”

“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief,” he added.

Legend, a big fan and personal friend of President Obama, has repeatedly attacked Trump this election season with charges of racism. The musician rarely shies away from expressing his political opinions; most recently, he called on the Democrat Party to end its use of the superdelegate system in party primary elections.

Earlier this month, the singer joined Christina Aguilera and Stevie Wonder in Los Angeles for an all-star concert fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Is that rich, considering he gushes support for Hillary Clinton?

“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive”
— and Clinton is not too divisive for you? We’re having a moment.

“I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.” — Hillary taking us back to that dark corrupt place doesn’t scare you? All the corrupt scandal baggage has you begging and voting for more? I “feel” the need to point out your absurd stupidity.

“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country.”— Funny those are exactly the reasons why not to support Hillary.  I do like the words “imposing the wrong regime” with all we’ve been through the last 8 years under unilateral, executive action because he could not ram it through Congress. Hillary now wants the wheel.

“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity, and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief.”

Wow that’s the gold label of bullshit. Equality, with who they pander  to? Diversity again, no diversity allowed.  Every human being in this life… while there is only one Party that stands for life now – preserving or protecting the sanctity thereof. Abortion has racked up 59 million and he is supporting the favorite candidate of the abortion industry.  Talk about leaders and politicians who contradict that life belief.

So fall back on the Trump is racist canard. Racism is the preferred freebase attack for Dems — no proof needed. When in reality if you don’t belong to a special interest group, then you don’t really exist. So they have categories for African Americans, LGBTQ, Latinos, Hiapanics, Muslims, BLM, unions, environmentalists, professional educators and provocateurs et al. If you don’t fit, you must not count. No “none of the above.”
(Oh, and stay in your lane)

Hillary doesn’t care about every human being either. She abandoned 4 Americans in Benghazi when their lives depended on it. She caused the situation they were in, then she pulled the rug out like leading sheep to slaughter. She pushed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. She’s an Ambassador for death and destruction, gladly taking money from merchants of evil. Trump is Legend’s boogieman — Trump is the Boogieman legend.

Beck unglued and crazy after all these years

Glenn Beck Calls for God to Punish America Over Trump

May 7, 2016| by Donn Marten | Downtrend.com

Loose cannon media personality and hard core Ted Cruz surrogate Glenn Beck is unraveling in the aftermath of Tuesday’s Indiana thumping. The mercurial Beck who last week called for a day of fasting so that God would help Cruz, is taking Donald Trump’s capture of the Republican party flag very hard. Beck’s visible mental decline accelerated when he told his audience that God needs to punish America for rejecting tricky Ted in favor of Trump, a man who while popular with the voters – democracy anyone? – doesn’t meet the standards of the country’s most visible Cruz-bot.

Breitbart News is reporting “Glenn Beck: America Is a ‘Petulant Child’ God Must Punish for Supporting Trump Over Cruz”:

More: http://downtrend.com/donn-marten/glenn-beck-calls-for-god-to-punish-america-over-trump/

Now I would be the first in a line to say we very well have some comeuppance due for our defiant ways in America. Remember abortion and go from there. However, something about Beck blaring it from the rooftops makes me question the messenger, over the message. Who bestowed the crown on this modern day prophet… at least he appears to think he is? It slightly reminds me of the slave girl in Acts running after the disciples.

Acts 16:

16One day as we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl with a spirit of clairvoyance, who earned a large income for her masters by fortune-telling. 17This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the way of salvation.”

18She continued this for many days. Eventually Paul grew so aggravated that he turned and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” And the spirit left her at that very moment.

I’m wondering about Beck’s intentions. Anyway, just curious what’s really driving it?

On the Oath of Litmus Tests

April 16, 2016

Something happened on the way to 2016. It became a lesson in contradictions.

For years the Democrats have turned Roe into a litmus test for nominees, particularly for the Supreme Court. By now that is just a sigh to Americans. So they force people to swear on the ‘altar of abortion,’ or Roe v Wade. There are no exceptions for Leftists.

Then the Republicans have allowed and went along with the absurd Roe litmus test, and accepted it as the way it is. The new inhumane “normal.” Over the years, it has been the central tenant in Liberals’ nomination orthodoxy. Roe is “settled law” – litmus that.

Now there is a new litmus test. In Democrats’ NY debate, Hillary announced that she would only consider a SCOTUS nominee if he/she supported abortion as settled law, and that he/she believes in overturning Citizens United. Note the contradiction in those. At any rate, they have yet another litmus test — debate is over, opposition is irrelevant.

So now, reading between the lines, they have set up another mythical litmus test.(the authority on litmus) But now one must swear that Citizens United is not “settled law.” Another sacred altar has been errected. Ignore the contradiction. On one hand, the settled law is what SCOTUS said. On the other, how wrong the High Court’s decision is. We now have a litmus test against the Court’s decision, rendering it anything but “settled law.”

I have to hand it to Hillary for making this all crystal clear. She once declared, even on the anniversary of Roe, which liberals celebrate as sacred tradition, that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” Gasp, it was the last part that caused tremors through liberaldom. How could she dare say something so offensively outrageous as “rare”?

Now we find out how unsettled law really is in Liberaldom. It must depend on the meaning of is. Even worse is how unsettled liberals seem to be on a SCOTUS decision, when it doesn’t suit their agenda. Many have become squeamish about Citizens United, but the alternative is limiting free speech. Some are more comfortable with the latter.

Hypersensitivities are reserved for Citizens United, not Roe. Liberals have the same visceral reaction to the Heller decision. Roe remains sacred orthodoxy — the golden calf, worshiped in perpetuity and sacrificed to nothing – while others are expendable.

A Hard Self-Therapy in a Word

This is a difficult yet therapeutic post to write that has been a long time coming. I’ll start with a simple word that frames up my sentiments at the moment, goodbye.

I’ve felt and lived through the difficulties of saying goodbye at the bedside of dying friends and loved ones. It’s one of the hardest things to face. But this is not that kind of goodbye. There is another type that has a brighter hope and opportunity attached promising new adventures ahead. It’s more that type I’m referring to.

It’s been a strange few years with many disappointments, pains, and the agony of defeat. Sure, there were a few short-lived successes here and there. Just enough to create temporary optimism about what lays ahead.

Okay, before misleading any readers to what this is about, what I am talking about is the country’s current situation — through my eyes at least — in the 2016 election. We have had a few good times in recent years but they soon turned back to a dark cloud.

What on earth am I rambling about? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s just possible that there are some things we might finally bid farewell to. (at the time of this writing anyway) They are things that have been with us for a while, etched into our minds and factored into any serious political discussion.

Picture an episode of Twilight Zone where Rod Sterling says,
“Imagine, if you will, a country without these…..”

Politics as usual: It’s probably the biggest one. Politics as usual may finally be changing. Too early to say if it will stick or not. But it feels pretty good in the short term that politics as usual could be grinding to an end. It outlived its utility and is now called into question. Could there really be something else? There may, in fact, be some life outside it after all.

Race hustling: This one may still be in effect but it seems to be losing traction fast. It might have worn out its welcome. Since things like traffic and road closures, detours, and mall demonstrations inconveniencing millions of Americans, this one may be in search of a new cause which was inevitable. Likely a migration into other areas like plain political activism.

The Democrat plantation: May be heading off into the wild blue yonder. It seems the old blue identity plantation may have outlived its fertilizer supply. This one goes with politics as usual. The primaries are revealing some serious fractures in the same old, such as taking voter groups for granted.

The establishment: Well, this one is not so much what it is but the incessant influence it has. Now its influence could be challenged. It remains one of the biggest factors in our politics today and may lose its control on our system. This one will not go quietly.

Race card: Just as race hustling is called into question, the time has come when the narrative finally got so old and predictable, and less believable than ever. It suffered from overuse and abuse. Imagine a place where it is frowned on to play the race card at every opportunity?

Woman card: This one was a little surprise, but again it suffers from overuse and abuse, especially where abortion is concerned.If the objective was fairness, we may have come full circle with the latest idea to mandate that women also register for the draft.

Interesting, too, in the first Iowa caucus that women went for Sanders. In New Hampshire the 18 to 34 yr old women overwhelmingly went for Sanders over Clinton. 87% for Sanders and 9% for Clinton… says something about choice.

Political correctness: This one is still hanging on by the skin of its teeth but has suffered some serious blows in this election cycle. We’ll have to see if it goes on life support but it is in intensive care. Some wonder now if it is really worth saving.

“It’s my turn now” — This old standard may finally be going the way of the Edsel. It never was very flattering anyway. It looks like it has been challenged from every side and found wanting. How the “rightful” heirs will feel about its absence has yet to be determined. Will they cry and demand it? Will even they be too ashamed to pursue it all the way? Time will tell. But patriarchal families are considering the dire consequences. It could be a bit too much for them to accept all at once.

Note: this claim may seem a little premature. However, chances are good for some of them, better every day in this political climate. It would require vigilance to enforce their absence. Well, that is what this formality is all about — with optimistic hope — bidding them farewell and goodbye. Can’t say I’ll miss them, dibs on the epitaphs though.

Anger management is the rage

Time for some anger management. Funny how I don’t remember a time in the last 20 years when the Dems weren’t angry. And they seemed to benefit from it just fine. We get angry and out come the lectures, now even from the Republican ranks. The establishment looks prepared to attack us for our anger. South Carolina is the firewall for anger.

Those little angry lectures go back to 2000. McCain called evangelicals and the base “agents of intolerance.” Not much has changed only the mouthpieces. It’s gotten worse not better. Sure they preach bipartisan BS and turn around to call us angry haters, or just angry. Meanwhile, they are angry at us and it shows on every issue.

I don’t remember anyone lecturing Dems about their anger problem. In fact, just the opposite. I hear Democrat pols telling them they have every reason to be angry. When they get angry that’s called “fired up.” It’s one of the first things they ask the crowd at a rally, “are you fired up?” That’s dem code for got your anger on? Have you ever seen Dems protest or rally when they weren’t angry? Show me one where they are singing Kumbaya. Anger is what they do, its their specialty.

No, I guess it is only the right-wing base that is not allowed to get angry. Off to anger management we are supposed to go. It must be because we get angry with the very schemes they are trying to pull over everyone’s eyes. That’s no fun when we have a legitimate, Constitutional beef with their BS. They can’t allow that. Of course it’s a different story when the Left or RINOs get angry, then it is celebrated.

Pepp forwarded me a good Townhall column from Doug Giles That makes the case. Nikki Haley and RNC(establishment) eat your heart out.

So we need anger management classes and what the left needs are anger courses — how and why to get angry. Heck, if you can get your anger on to preserve the “right” to kill babies, then you can get angry for anything. If that should get tiring, you can always join the war on the rich campaign to really unload your anger. Or get angry at the cops. Pepp reminded me it goes back to Vietnam with the left. All that fertile anger is so necessary, justified, and needed. Or maybe get angry with Israel. Join that campaign.

In fact, as I pointed out way back on this blog, you can take a course and go to summer camp to learn the art of getting angry at Israel, join the BDS war and take it back to your college campus to recruit others. Or maybe join the war on coal, war on energy, war on fossil fuels. There’s plenty to get angry about. You can even join the Climate Caliphate and go on jihad.(there might even be a nice paycheck in it) Well, you get the point. “War” is the bomb, don’t you know?

But if you are a conservative on the right, you need some serious, forced anger management. Learn the art of being silent (sit down and shut up) or offer appeasement to anything disagreeable. Learn how to be an apologist for terrorists, illegal aliens, and open borders. Learn tolerance and bite your tongue.

DWS does it again

Here comes Debbie Wasserman Schultz playing the abortion card.

The millennials are complacent on abortion. Does she have any idea how stupid she sounds? Don’t answer that.

The Hill

For many in my generation who lived the majority of our lives with the right to make our own health care choices, there wasn’t a sense of urgency after Roe v. Wade settled our right to a safe and legal abortion. Since then, opponents worked aggressively to chip away at women’s reproductive freedom and they have awakened a sleeping giant in the millennials leading the fight in defense of the progress we’ve made,” she said. Read more

Dems can’t stand up for the 2nd amendment but they can stand up for a contorted right to privacy as a sacred right of abortion. A “Right” to kill a baby for any reason, any time — or “progress” as DWS calls it. But guns are somehow the problem in America.

After all, Hillary’s estrogen level must be running a little low, since she had to deploy Bubba Bill on the campaign trail to rally support. Now Debbie has to go browbeat the millennials for not faithfully supporting the right to murder babies. No rest for the wicked.

Are you ready for Jeb 2.0?

You might be ready for the newest technology or the latest Iphone or gadget, but I doubt you are ready for the newest Jeb. That’s if you are like most people polled who show less than room temperature for him.

Way before he announced his run I said if he’s in it then I’m loaded for bear. I wasn’t alone. But up until now the critics have been pretty quiet, almost as quiet as his supporters. There just is not any enthusiasm for him and those that dislike him as a nominee are everywhere.

Still Jeb puts forth this line that he is not in it for the short run but the long run. He also muttered something before announcing about not wanting to get dragged into current debates. (read relevant issues)(1) No, he was above that. Then he said he doesn’t want to be lumped in with his brother and father that he’s his own man. (2)

Now he makes this call it the state of his campaign speech(3)

Politico reports that Bush was meeting with family and wealthy, big donors. So it was originally supposed to be a pep rally for the third heir in the dynasty, like sort of a send off into securing the nomination, at least by best guesstimates. Only now on skid row, the same meeting looks more like he is bringing up the rear with no sign of gaining traction, he is forced to cut back on his campaign’s expenses.

“The patient is either in intensive care and in need of some good doctors who can save him or being put into hospice and we’re going to see a slow death,” said one K Street lobbyist supporting Bush.

Now infamous line

Then came the line from Bush that did make it to front page news, from same article. Sounding angry himself he says:

“I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke,” he said in South Carolina. “Elect Trump if you want that.”

Whoa, let’s stop right there. He has a lot better things to do. I guess managing director in Bloomberg’s fund was really cool compared to this, even if it was engulfed in a global abortion agenda. He can always return to that. No one forced him to do that either.

We didn’t exactly force or draft you to run. It’s all your decision. (2)The family thing you didn’t want to be known for is exactly who you are. Nothing will change you being a Bush, Jeb. America does not like dynasties. But you knew all that before you plunged into what you expected to be a rocket climb only to be burned out on the launch pad.

Now you can blame Trump or whomever you want. You won’t blame 43 or the Bush dynasty syndrome. So maybe it is a good thing, for your sake, Trump is there to blame? And you wouldn’t dare blame the establishment or RNC Party for sabotaging your run with its questionable reputation.

How bad is the dislike for Jeb Bush? Its so bad that it is just a symptom of a greater problem that doesn’t even deserve the specter of the press to cover it in detail. Yet it is emblematic of the whole establishment problem.

(1)He didn’t want to get drawn into current issue debates like all other candidates. He shouldn’t have to, he’s a governor and a Bush. We don’t play that. Other candidates should have to go through that not a favorite son. It sounded elitist and arrogant.

He didn’t want to be labeled a Bush, which is why he used only the Jeb name. Buried in hypocrisy and contradiction he keeps saying he’s his own man but proves himself a Bush at every turn. His donor list looks typical and probably a hand-me-down like everything else. He’s been planning this run for years. But don’t play the Bush card against him. More elitist arrogance, he relies on the Bush Dynasty to seal the deal.

It doesn’t seem to matter that people have moved on and said no dynasty. Establishment, dynasty, elite, insiders are not in vogue. He’s still a Bush with all the baggage. He doesn’t seem to understand the word no — so typical. We aren’t smitten any more with you for the long run than we are for the short run. Evolve away it won’t pay. 3 big strikes….

Pelosi and the war on planned parenthood

Here is a nice crap sandwich from Pelosi about her BFF, Planned Parenthood.

Oh, for the days when she was speaker of the House.
See video

She plays the woman card, plays the mother card, plays the Catholic card, plays the arrogance card all at once.

Take your ideological view and shove it? Well, considering this is their ideological baby.

Isn’t she looking really old, too? Testy…

Hillary wedded to Planned Parenthood, with union support

Now we can see that Hillary Clinton is clearly Planned Parenthood’s nominee of choice. She is by far the biggest beneficiary of PP money. Bernie Sanders gets a measly 500 dollars. Hillary 10,000 so far.

The president CEO of Planned Parenthood also has a well-worn path to the Obama White House too, logging visits to many prominent staff — meeting 5 times with Valerie Jarrett and 4 with David Plouffe. Remember that when Obama conjures up Ronald Reagan.

Washington Free Beacon

July 31, 2015 — Planned Parenthood pours cash into Clinton

On Thursday, the White House came to the defense of Planned Parenthood calling the stream of damning videos against the organization “fraudulent.” The talking points used by the White House came straight from Planned Parenthood itself.

Now, according to the visitor log, it was discovered that the president of Planned Parenthood has made 39 visits to the Obama White House since he’s taken office.

The dirty little secret is the money Planned Parenthood receives from unions. Apparently they aren’t shy about supporting a controversial organization amidst repulsive agendas.

Free Beacon “Unions Send Dues Money to Planned Parenthood”

Nearly half a million to top abortionist, mostly for political purposes

Three of the nation’s largest unions—the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU), contributed $435,000 to the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Almost all of that money was spent on political advocacy. AFSCME donated $400,000 to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which spent about $1 million helping Democratic campaigns in 2014, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. UFCW categorized its $10,000 donation as political activity in federal labor filings. [More]

My how they all love giving to all causes political. Of course by political I mean Democrats. It appears that the other major side of Planned Parenthood, its political action fund, operate more like a slush fund for political fundraising. Speaking of fundraising.

Even the recent outrage over the exposure of the body parts agenda and political climate is just more fundraising opportunity for PP’s agenda. Using public outrage to raise money.

PP fraiser

At least there’s no question who PP and the AFT teachers’ union endorse, president Randi Weingarten calling Hillary “champion of working families”.(based on?) Working families must love cronyism. It also means Hillary will be against “choice” for parents.

However, Weingarten’s premature endorsement of Clinton is one many union members would like to see aborted. The NEA is taking a more cautious look at candidates trying to avoid premature blowback. Therefore NEA’s surveys and talks with candidates are being kept deliberately secretive.

O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!” — Walter Scott

Last word on the PP scandal

Well, a timely article is out from Tammy Bruce on the PP’s body parts-palooza .

See: The moral terrorism of Planned Parenthood – by Tammy Bruce

Who isn’t disturbed by the Planned Parenthood revelations? Well, apparently Planned Parenthood and all its supporters and the abortion industry. There is what they do and then there is their attitude about it. Or as Tammy put it: “that a woman discussing where she chooses to “crush” an in-utero baby in order to not damage the human organs discussed for sale is approached as blase and routine.”

So its a dual track, Planned Parenthood’s actions and their convenient insensitivity, and lack of humanity, about what they are doing along with their lies.

But then it comes full circle with the Left. They rise up to condemn the video and the organization that made it. They call for an investigation of the videogrophers. They can be completely outraged at a group exposing PP’s mission and agenda.

Obama’s Whitewashing House also question the videos, repeating PP’s claim that they “follow the highest ethical guidelines.” Obama spoke to PP in 2013 closing with: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” Yes, there is a lot there to bless, Obama. Now the knee-jerk response of the left is to defend PP and condemn the video organization exposing the atrocities. Planned Parenthood who “in 2013 they performed 327,653 abortions and received over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer funding.

And, as typical, there was a quick launch campaign to kill the messenger, or at least investigate and target it.

NPR — Four Democrats in Congress — Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler, and Yvette Clarke — have written to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and California Attorney General Kamala Harris, asking them to open investigations into the Center for Medical Progress.


Obama DOJ Plans To Investigate…The Group That Busted Planned Parenthood

The Federalist

The U.S. Department of Justice announced plans to investigate the group that produced undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood employees admitting that they harvest and sell organs ripped from the bodies aborted babies.

The now infamous Dr Nucatola is employed by Sexual Health Innovations, which includes former Obama staffers on its board and works closely with the administration.

CEO Cecile Richards refers to their 100 year history. And said “we know the real agenda of organizations behind videos like this.” The agenda that should disturb anyone is Planned Parenthood’s. But they understand the “agenda” of another organization so well? I expect there will be a combined attempt to somehow prevent more videos from the Center for Medical Progress to be released, with investigation. We don’t care, no matter what.

Pelosi: “Lets have an investigation of those people who are trying to ensnare Planed Parenthood in a controversy that doesn’t exist.” Planned Parenthood the victims.

Cecile Richards calls them militant. PP = 6,824,881 abortions since 1970… “militants”?
187,530 abortions this year, militant?

PPhood runs amok in body parts agenda

During the release of the video showing Planned Parenthood discussing selling body parts from babies, the left claimed to be offended. Not by what was going on but what was reported and the way it was reported/exposed. Then they played their old “context” card with the “they edited it” excuse. How much editing did it need? Well, it was a 2 hour and 42 minute meeting, so there has to be some editing. Though they did release the whole length thing if you care to watch it. And it was just as damning if not worse. But who cares about that when they can just claim, “but it was edited”. Whoopee. So what?

It helps to remember what things Leftists despise and have no patience for. They attack people buying or wearing fur coats made from animal fur. Oh, they turned that into a damnable sin. However, now when it comes to body parts of fetuses they put all their compassion behind ‘but its for research.’ Even the media is spinning the outrage to being its for research. The video made no attempt to avoid the research angle. That was not denied or hidden. In fact, “research” is what makes it appalling. But research does not mitigate PP’s agenda. MSM seems to think it does. And they don’t like fat cat salaries of figurehead CEO’s in wasteful industries.

But now the left blows up in righteous outrage over the exposure of the story but not the process or policies of abortion taking place in Planned Parenthood. So the PP 400k president, Cecile Richards came out to apologize…but only for the way the staff person spoke about the process. She went on to praise and thank tissue donors. Babies would probably be tickled that they are being labeled a “donation” and shipped off to medical research.

“Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion, this is unacceptable and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements.” — Cecile Richards in her apology (soon to become a Democrat fundraiser #StandWithPP; Cemetery of Choice).

Maybe the person did not show enough compassion in speaking about it? No, that is not really possible because abortion requires a lack of compassion for babies in the first place across the industry. Desensitization. Adding more compassion for babies would incriminate themselves and procedures. So it was not for lack of empathy which PP took issue with the staffer. By the way, it was not just a staffer, but it was the head of the national operation. And not a staffer but a doctor. So the CEO was wrong on both counts.

One of the lateral issues discussed at length was the waste issue, tagging and protocol. They talked about incineration and cost. If you mention biological tissue disposal of anything else, you’d get ethical red flags and possible outrage over it. Here we’re dealing with literal human tissue as a waste byproduct of the industry. Try to find a parallel to compare it to.

Since a major point is how callously she talked about graphic details of life and extraction procedures, with similar ease she navigated the national map of which areas are more promising for tissue mining. One she was very confident about was the St. Louis area. Go figure. While California already seems ahead in the tissue game.

This all fits Planned Parenthood’s propaganda campaign. It provides another area they can probe the patient about, donating tissue. So if they can offer them a feel-good purpose to say “the tissue is donated to help people,” it becomes an abortion selling point to assuage those ethical dilemmas and worries of “patients”. They’ve merely spun it into another positive benefit of abortion. I assume the tissue parts most in demand would be later developed, creating an incentive for later abortions. We know that. They are always looking for more selling points.

George Takei vs Clarence Thomas

Here is a real lesson in showmanship — a real bad one. And it comes from a professional actor mega-social activist, in other words a “Professional.”

George Takei: Clarence Thomas Is a ‘Clown in Blackface,’ Doesn’t Belong on Supreme Court

BY: Emma-Jo Morris | Washington Free Beacon |
July 2, 2015

Takei’s rage came in light of the Justice’s contrary stance on the recent equal marriage decision, where the Court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. Thomas released a statement saying that the government does not grant human dignity, and as such cannot take it away. Thomas argued that human dignity is inherent, and that the Supreme Court cannot issue it.

Go to the video tape. Here’s a first class example of a Leftist activist

“He gets me that angry,” which is liberal code for justified in calling him that. And he’ll get plenty of applause from his gay community comrades.

Then says: “This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America. I’ll say it on camera.” Proud and loud…exhibit “A”.

The problem in his case is that Thomas’s dissent was a minority opinion. Try that 3-cushion bank shot from the right and watch what happens.

I’m reminded of the dignity the court awarded abolished from the 55 million and counting aborted babies since Roe.

According to his bio script: “George Takei is an actor, social justice activist, and social media mega-power.”
