HE WOULD ABSOLUTELY GET ELECTED FOR A THIRD TIME

This past Tuesday, July 28, 2015, the current president said he felt he had been a “pretty good” President of the United States and was confident that he would be elected again if he could run again. Most conservatives responded to this saying no way. These are the same folks who were so sure that he would not be re-elected in November 2012. And look what happened!

If he was able to run for a third term, my prediction is that he would definitely have an excellent chance of being re-elected. He has majority of the media on his side, low information voters have generally supported him, and of course, everyone from the far left to the slightly left of center support him.

In 2012, I felt good about Mitt Romney’s candidacy after the first presidential debate. The current president seemed week and off-balance. Furthermore, candidate Romney did blow holes through the president’s socialist policies. Then came the debate on foreign policy when candidate Romney questioned the President about his labeling of the Benghazi killings as acts of violence and not terrorist attacks. Mediator Candy Crowley indicated that the President did call them acts of terror. However, it wasn’t until two weeks after the attacks that the President admitted they were terrorist attacks. Initially, the current President, through U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, publicly blamed the attacks on an anti-Islamic video. Candidate Romney seemed off-balance and no longer pursued Benghazi. When this happened, I thought to myself, Romney has just handed the election to the current President. Romney had his chance to expose the President for actions taken/not taken by him and his administration regarding Benghazi, but he blew it.

Enter Hurricane Sandy that traveled up the east coast wreaking havoc on densely populated areas. The President seemed genuinely concerned about the plight of the affected Americans and the loss or property. So, people who were undecided and might be leaning toward Romney, did an about face and voted for the current President.

Come election night, every toss-up state went for the current President. I thought that a bit strange because in most Presidential elections, the candidates split the toss-ups. Am I insinuating that there may have been some fraud? Yes, I think that’s a possibility, especially in Ohio. Can I prove it? No.

Conservatives do have a better message than liberals. If I had the chance to debate a liberal and had at my fingertips, all the facts and figures, I have no doubt that I would win the debate. However, in all likelihood, my liberal counterpart would get frustrated and emotional and start yelling all sorts of things at me, including racism, sexism, hater of the poor, hater of minorities, hater of the elderly, and the list goes on. I would find myself having to disprove the allegations. Of course, I can to that. But having to do that would derail the message I was attempting to deliver.
I have a huge imagination. In fact, it’s too big for my own good. But it’s proved useful for my fiction writing. Currently, I’m imagining that all of Hillary’s scandals come home to roost. Because Senator Bernie Sanders is an old white guy and not very exciting, it looks like the Democrat party may be down on their luck. Then in some unimaginable way, the current President is able to qualify and run for a third term, and comes in to save the Democrat party. Unfortunately, I know some Obama-zombies who would literally weep with joy should that happen. Sickening, isn’t it?

While I’ve always said that if most people really knew the difference between Republicans and Democrats, most people would be Republicans. In the summer of 2015, I’m not so sure. A liberal friend of mine, in failing to win an argument with me on Obamacare, indicated that the American people would get used to the increased premiums, diminished quality of healthcare, and the fact that the Federal Government, in forcing the American people to purchase something, is unconstitutional. I guess that will become part of the liberals’ mantra…”you’ll soon get used to it.”

The United States of America seems to have lost its moral compass. People are more outraged over the killing of a lion in Africa than they are over the illegal harvesting of organs from aborted fetuses. Twenty-five years ago, most American were pro-choice, but most of those pro-choice folks were against partial birth abortions and were pro-choice because they felt, that in the early stages of pregnancy, an embryo was not yet a human being. Liberals are set to ruin the life of the Minnesota dentist that killed Cecil, the lion. They are demonstrating outside of his closed office seething with hate. It seems okay for liberals to do this to the dentist, but not okay for pro-life groups to conduct organized protests outside various Planned Parenthood offices. It’s okay to have that awful George Soros pay protesters to destroy property and lives in the towns of Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, but if there’s a sign at a Tea Party rally that may not be in the best of taste, those people are all dubbed terrorists and subjected to being called lots of bad names.

I don’t know that there’s any one person or group of people who can save the United States of America. But the United States of American can be saved and I believe it will be saved. Only God, at this point, can.

IS THERE NO SATISFYING LIBERALS?

I still have more to say about the tolerant left accusing Fox Cable News of disparaging the poor, but I’m giving that a rest today because I came upon an article on Talking Points Memo that I came upon article that I want to write about. I’ll continue my “Liberals Gone Wild” series next week.

As many of you who read my posts regularly know, I have a folder in my favorites called “Stupid Liberal Articles,” and it is quite large. The article I just added is from talkingpointsmemo.com dated May 21, 2015 and authored by Jesse J. Holland. It is entitled, “Differing Portrayals of Waco, Baltimore Spur Reflection, WTFs.” I’m not going to speculate on what Mr. Holland means by “WTFs”. If it stands for what we all think it stands for, this is just another example of classless liberalism.

Being an unenlightened oaf, I had to read the article through a couple of times and study it to get the gist of what it means and I’m still not sure I have it right, but I’m doing my best to interpret it.

The author appears to be complaining about the riots in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland getting excessive media attention while the gun between police and bikers where nine bikers were killed is getting practically no attention. Mr. Holland indicates that while there were no deaths during the Baltimore and Ferguson protests, people immediately stereotyped all of the protesters as criminals. Holland goes on to say that we haven’t heard the level of disgust and dismay as you did over fires burning in Ferguson and in Baltimore. Civil rights attorney Charles F. Coleman, Jr. said only minority communities get blamed for violence, while no one blames white families or white communities for fatal violence by white men, characterizing such events as “isolated incidents.” Holland also remarked about how the current President of the United States described the Baltimore looters as “thugs,” and the media devoted hours of television and radio airtime to dissecting the social ills that affect the black community.

First of all, there’s a big difference. There were no protesting and no rioting in Waco. The Waco incident was a local matter and is being handled locally as it should be.

Having said all of the above, MR. HOLLAND, HOW CAN YOU BE SO STUPID? You appear to be griping because the media is not covering Waco like they covered Ferguson and Baltimore. Looters in Ferguson and Baltimore were labeled as thugs and were looting and rioting. Most were black and were protesting and rioting because two black men had been shot and killed by two white policeman. When speculation rose regarding the actions of the police, matters should have been handled locally. If they had been handled locally, the media would not have covered these two incidents. Unrest escalated in Ferguson and Baltimore because of the likes of Al Sharpton and other race hustlers moving in and whipping up the folks. Also, it has been alleged that billionaire liberal operative George Soros indirectly funded the protests and riots that took place in both cities. Liberals everywhere rushed to judgment in both incidents, championing Michael Brown and Freddie Gray and demonizing the police. We all know liberals don’t care about facts. They decide how they want an outcome to be and if it doesn’t turn out the way they want it to turn out, they protest and riot, claiming racism, sexism, and whatever other “ism” they can find. Again forget facts and forget fairness. This is how liberals operate.

And to make matters worse, the current President of the United States weighed in and it was not his place to weigh in on either the Ferguson situation or the Baltimore situation. Again, these were local matters and should have been handled locally. But our current President is half black and a racist to boot. He was a community organizer in Chicago before being elected State Senator in Illinois, then U.S. Senator, then President of the United States. He attended a church where anti-American radicalism was preached and hung out with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn of the seventies radical group, Weather Underground. Bill Ayers and members of the Weather Underground bombed the Pentagon and to this day Ayers is not sorry for what he did. We have a president that despises the United States of America and whose goal is to destroy the United States of America through different methods, including following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals which includes undermining authority which would include our local police forces.

Mr. Holland, if you’re upset because the media focused on Ferguson and Baltimore, depicting the struggles of black Americans, and that certain factions were blaming black Americans for the rioting in these two cities, you need to take things up with the likes of Al Sharpton, George Soros, the tolerant left, and the current President of the United States. They’re the ones who promoted the protesting and rioting, along with the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. I included the tolerant left in my list of folks to blame for the media coverage of Ferguson and Baltimore. It was the tolerant left that kept the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie going even after it was concluded that Michael Brown never had his hands up, nor was he running from the police.

Why aren’t there protests and riots in Waco after the shootout where nine bikers, labeled thugs, were killed after causing trouble? It’s been indicated that those who were part of the biker gangs were mostly white and Hispanic. The skin color of the Waco police officers involved was not reported and I don’t care about the skin color of the police in Waco. White folks were killed by the police, so Al Sharpton, the current President, George Soros, and the tolerant left don’t care about white folks. In fact, they are waging a war on white folks.

I’m a white woman who lives in central Alabama. I’m working seven days a week to make my small business profitable so that I can be my own boss and not have to go back to working for jerks. Being a conservative, I don’t see things in terms of race. Civil rights legislation was signed into law a half century ago. What do I think about Waco? It was bad, but I’m a police supporter and feel that if any nefarious actions took place, investigation and prosecution of these actions should be handled at the local level.

IT’S EVERYONE’S FAULT, BUT…

I should have kept count, but I didn’t, of the number of articles I have read where liberals are blaming Republicans for the riots that have broken out in Baltimore and various cities across the United States in relation to the death of Freddie Gray while he was in the custody of the Baltimore, Maryland police department.

According to alternet.com, a far left rag, “The protests and violent exhalations by Baltimore’s black youth (and others) are the result of a long patter of police abuse, harassment and violence toward that city’s African-American community in the context of systemic class inequality, custodial citizenship and mass incarceration.”

According to the American Spectator, the current President has blamed the Baltimore riots on Republicans for failing to pass his legislative agenda. Hasn’t he just issued executive orders whenever he didn’t get what he wants? The American Spectator, goes on to say that the city does suffer from crippling unemployment, and that the police department has a history of treating criminals as less than human. In just a few short years, the Baltimore PD has paid out millions in jury awards and settlements to arrestees and their families, which, while far from conclusive, shows there might be a problem with the aggressive nature of law enforcement.

If what has been said about the Baltimore Police Department is true, it’s not the fault of the Republicans, it’s the fault of the city government, particularly the mayor, who happens to be the secretary of the Democrat National Committee.

You can blame the Great Society programs which led to the denigration of the black family and the increase in poverty in our nation’s black communities, but I’m going to go back farther. I’m going to blame it on the taking of God out of our lives, something the liberals started in the sixties and are still doing today.

In 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment by constituting an establishment of religion. The following year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Court disallowed Bible readings in public schools for similar reasons. According to religionandpolitics.org, these two landmark Supreme Court decisions entered on the place of religion in public education, and particularly the place of Protestantism, which had long been accepted as the given American faith tradition. Both decisions ultimately changed the face of American civil society, and in turn, helped usher in the last half-century of the culture wars.

After the taking of God out of our society, church attendance dropped and children were not attending church and growing up with the teachings of the Lord. Of course, they didn’t pray or get to hear scripture in their school either. As years passed, we began seeing the liberal efforts to diminish the value of our traditional holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, even though Thanksgiving does not celebrate a biblical event. Liberals love to pontificate over the “separation of church and state” even though that phrase is nowhere in the U.S. Constitution.

When I was growing up in a traditional Christian family, I was taken to Sunday school and church. I was taught to follow the Lord and be thankful for all the blessings that he bestowed upon me. While my family wasn’t the richest in my hometown of Cullman, Alabama, we weren’t the poorest either. Some children with whom I grew up had more than me and some had less than me. There’s no such thing as a level playing field. All of us have some God given talents and all of us have shortcomings and hurdles to jump as we’re making our way in this world of ours.

The liberals blame us conservatives and Republicans for not supporting the throwing of good money after bad when it comes to entitlement programs, particularly those that throw money at poverty stricken areas. It appalls me that Democrats, even operating on one brain cell, can’t comprehend that throwing money at poverty doesn’t make it go away, it only exacerbates it.

And look what’s happened now, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who claims to be a socialist democrat, has announced his intention to seek the Democrat nomination for President. Bernie is calling for, guess what, tax increases for the wealthiest Americans. He also wants to provide a college education for everyone. He continues and I’m sure will continue to pontificate on income inequality which he considers and abomination.

Today on social media, I have seen many Democrats come out in favor of Bernie Sanders, with many of them indicating that Bernie wouldn’t get very far against Hillary. However, these far left individuals have indicated that they hope Bernie will bring Hillary further left as she pursues the presidency.

The United States of America is a country that I don’t recognize anymore. Criminals are glorified, free speech has disappeared, we’re turning our backs on our trusted allies, we’re turning our backs on God and appearing to sympathize with Muslims. The federal government is talking about coming in and re-training our local police forces. It’s just so over-whelming and depressing. While I certainly have a lot of material for this blog, I never wanted this much material, I never wanted our country to become what it has become.

We have strayed so far from the vision our founding fathers had for us. I can continue to write and hopefully continue to expose what’s going on, but we’re going to have to do something else if we hope to take back our country. We have to pray, and pray with everything we have. God is still in charge and we much remember that only he can put this nation on the right track again.

LIBERAL TRAVESTIES

In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law major civil rights legislation. This piece of legislation ended segregation in public places and ended employment discrimination on basis of race, religion, color, sex, or national origin. This piece of legislation lifted the barriers for minorities, particularly blacks, and gave them the right to apply for college admission, housing, employment, etc. They could no longer be denied the right to pursue such things.

In 1970, the women’s movement began and the term, “women’s liberation,” became a household phrase. I’ll be the first to admit that I probably wouldn’t be sitting her at this computer trying to make my business profitable if it hadn’t been for the women’s movement which lifted the barriers and allowed women to compete for jobs that were traditionally held by men and that’s a good thing. I have been accused of taking advantage of the women’s movement and then being a traitor to my gender.

Working to open the doors for those who had been traditionally is a good and noble cause. However, liberals can’t seem to stop and enjoy their victories, they insist on pushing the envelope, and that pushing of the envelope is the reason that we’re in the mess we’re in today. Instead of, after getting the barriers lifted, saying, okay brothers and sisters, the world is your oyster, go out there and get that education, get those jobs, get that house in an upscale subdivision; they continued on, to this day, with their rhetoric. Racism, sexism, you would think that no progress had been made since the barriers were lifted.

I once attended a meeting for a women’s group hoping to get some pointers on how to succeed in the workplace. However, all the women did was trash men and talk about how horrible men were. Sadly, I think this is what it’s all about. It’s not about succeeding, it’s about declaring war on men, war on whites, war on heterosexuals.

After signing civil rights legislation into law, President Lyndon Johnson, instead of encouraging blacks to mix it up, apply for that college, apply for that job, etc., showed his disdain by insisting that blacks weren’t good enough to prosper in the white man’s world and therefore needed extra help. Supposedly, he said, “We’ll have all of these n*****s voting Democrat.” What a disgusting racist statement! Victory should have been his, but he had to push the envelope. While blacks are certainly prominent in our world today, far too many are on the welfare rolls and in prisons. Instead of letting the blacks get out there and compete, then succeed, Lyndon Johnson relegated them to another type of oppression that some may argue is much worse than segregation.

And then there’s the women’s movement. Women have jumped in and done very well. At first, a woman had to be just like a man to be accepted. Baking cookies and taking them to the office was a “no-no.” Now, that’s perfectly okay to do. I enjoy making my Christmas fudge and taking it to the office. Also, after the women’s movement, women were discouraged from accepting traditional women’s jobs such as teacher, secretary, and nurse. It seemed that you were considered second class if you pursued these occupations. I’ve had what were previously considered men’s jobs for a while and frankly I’m ready to do something feminine for a change. So, I’ve started writing romance novels and I enjoy doing that.

So, liberals have screwed over blacks and women. We’d all be much better off today if they had disappeared off the face of this earth after lifting the barriers for blacks and women.

Thanks to liberals, our healthcare system is messed up. Most of us who don’t have health insurance through an employer have had to procure insurance through “the marketplace.” My premiums have increased by 50% and I’m getting less and paying more.

Thanks to liberals, we no longer have free speech in this country. Half the time, I’m scared of what to say. Liberals change the definition of racism and sexism, sometimes as often as hourly, to suit their whims. Screwing up because of ignorance is no excuse. If you don’t tow the liberal line, they’ll do whatever they can to destroy you. You might not be hauled off to a gulag, but you can be destroyed in other ways.

When it comes to foreign policy, we’ve turned our back on our allies, especially our main ally in the Middle East, Israel. Now we’re negotiating with Iran, a country that sponsors terrorism, with regard to their quest to possess nuclear weapons. So, we promise to lift the sanctions and they guarantee that they will halt the building of nuclear weapons. Also, Iran is supposedly going to allow regular inspections. Due to my limited vocabulary, I cannot express the egregiousness of this.

Of course, the liberals have a goal to take away our right to bear arms and protect ourselves. I guess we’re supposed to let the perpetrator(s) attack us. If we’re fortunate enough to be able to call 911, then we have wait on the police.

Our borders are porous and the liberals want to take from American citizens and give to the illegal aliens. Of course, we have to pay for all of this. The goal is to make all of them citizens. Of course, they’ll vote Democrat.

We have a President who implements executive orders when he knows that Congress won’t give him what he wants. In other words, we’ve turned into a dictatorship. For those liberals who love this President and think the means justifies the end, you are wrong, dead wrong. When this country was founded, three branches of government were established with no branch being superior to the other branches. A system of checks and balances was established. This President has made a mockery of that.

As I write this, I’m watching Baltimore burn. The current President is responsible for this. I agree with Kevin Jackson of blacksphere.com, he created the conditions for violence. His goal, the destruction of American, whether from within or without remains on schedule and it gets worse every day.

Our country is a mess and as I watch and read the news, I sometimes can’t believe that this is the United States of America.
