LYING WITH A PURPOSE

Trial lawyers, while trying cases, often utilize a slick trick to sway a jury. An attorney for one side will ask the witness an improper question, knowing the opposing attorney will object and the objection will be sustained. Even though the witness was not allowed to answer the question, the jury heard the question and can’t possibly un-hear it.

Democrats, in a concerted effort to destroy the Donald Trump presidency constantly lie about the president, his administration, Republicans in general, and Trump supporters. They lie, they know they’re lying, and they don’t care that they’re lying.

Not all citizens are as politically astute as I am, and my readers are. They’re clueless when it comes to current events and politics, only getting what little knowledge they have from snippets of news they hear in passing. They may watch part of the evening network news before tuning in to their favorite sitcoms and dramas on TV after eating dinner. Then it’s off to bed. Rinse and repeat.

It’s these folks that liberals are targeting. The liberal media, including the networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, etc. run a story that everyone knows is a lie. So, what, if it’s a lie. They want the folks I described above to hear it or read it and think,” Gee, this president is an awful person to say the things he says.” Two or three days later the truth come out that the president didn’t actually say that, or what he said was taken out of context. A retraction may be run correcting the record, or not.

The Democrats have achieved their goal. People like I described above heard the original story, but there’s a good chance they didn’t hear the truth.

Like I’ve been saying for years, Democrats don’t care about the truth. They tell lies and they know they are telling lies. It’s okay, though. They have each other’s’ backs. They have their own little lying clique. No one inside the clique is going to call them out or say the false story should not have been run.

Yes, conservatives and conservative media are going to call them out. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, all the way down to Nancy Graham are going to investigate and obtain the truth. But how many of the people I described above follow Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson, etc? Virtually none. And because Rush, Sean, Bill, Tucker, etc. are continuous targets for the left to direct their venomous hate, most of the above folks would rather be struck dead than spend even a few minutes listening the these talking heads. They have no interest in pursuing other angles, it’s time for “Dancing with the Stars.”

STORY ABOUT THE NFL – HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?

Throughout social media, people are questioning the news media’s covering of the NFL Story regarding multiple players refusing to stand while the National Anthem is played before football games. The coverage has been almost non-stop, and as one would expect, with the exception of Fox News and One America News, the media is taking the side that it’s perfectly okay to kneel for the National Anthem in protest of a cruel United States of America with a history of slavery and oppression of minorities.

When President Trump came out of Friday night, September 22, at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, advising NFL team owners that they should fire “those SOBs who refuse to stand for the anthem,” a widespread movement swept among the players to kneel when the anthem was played.

Many folks are now boycotting the NFL and as you can imagine, there have been “opinions galore” out there. For the record, here’s mine. I blame the owners for allowing this kerfuffle to escalate to the extent it has. These players signed contracts with their respective teams, and when you sign a contract of employment, no matter what you position is, you agree to do what your employer tells you to do. The owners could have told the players, “stand for the National Anthem or be fired.” The end! But they didn’t. They wimped out.

While, of course, the players are to be held accountable for their actions and will certainly suffer repercussions, they are young men, many of them under the age of twenty-five. And they’re millionaires to boot. Groomed since childhood to be football stars, they held press conferences while in high school to announce the college they had chosen. Once they got on campus, they became the most popular guys on campus. In some states, such as my own, they became the most important people in the state, being loved, adored, and looked up to by many. After being drafted and signing multi-million-dollar contracts, they played football, and continued to be everyone’s darling. Pretty heady stuff.

Playing for an NFL team is hard work. Practices are grueling and pressure is never ending. These players are not your average twenty-four-year-old college graduates who are trying to “make it” in fields such as accounting, computer science, teaching, banking, etc. Do they watch the news, do they regularly visit news websites? Probably not. Majority of these players are black and many came from poor families. Furthermore, when someone tells them that the United States of America is a cruel racist country, and that’s why there are so many people living under the poverty line, many of them minorities, these players want to be seen as doing something good, plus they’re young and idealistic. They also want to fit in, to be popular with their peers. Thus, I put more of the blame on the owners and NFL management for allowing this to happen.  Like Bill O’Reilly said last night, it’s “pack mentality.” Also, many are not mature enough to think through what their actions might lead to down the road.

Having said all of the above, I’m also reading articles where many folks are complaining, saying that we have much more important stuff to cover and obsess on instead of football; things such as the damages and continued suffering of those affected by the recent hurricanes, plus “Little Rocket Man” on the other side of the world threatening to annihilate all of us. And let’s not forget the terrorist attack on a small church in Antioch, Tennessee where a gunman from the Sudan killed a woman church-goer in the parking lot and injured others, shooting until he was subdued by another church-goer with a carry permit and a gun. The mainstream media would not have covered the church shooting story anyway, because a black Islamic terrorist shooting at, killing and injuring white Christians, particularly southern white Christians is just not newsworthy, nor did it trigger widespread riots, looting, and allegations of police brutality.

I beg to differ with those who think the NFL story is immaterial in the wake of what else is taking place in the country and in the world.

The NFL and sports in general have always been large parts of our culture where all people regardless of financial status, social status, religion, ethnicity, ideology, etc. could come together for fun, and fellowship. The ultra-liberal sitting next to you in the stands wants the same thing as you want…for your team to win. As the United States of America becomes more polarized with respect to how we should govern ourselves now and in the future, the sports culture, where historically politics didn’t exist, has become increasingly important as a refuge and a uniting mechanism.

As I watched the left go nuclear at the president’s comments, calling him a racist (the media calling the president a racist…what else is new), when he didn’t even mention race or skin color in his remarks, followed by Roger Goodell’s actions and the team owners’ actions, it became all too apparent that this whole melee was being fueled by the left with its systematic methodologies to destroy the United States of America by vaporizing its history, including the constitution, and destroying its culture, institution by institution.

The organizers of the leftist movement to annihilate the United State of America, have now seen an opportunity to break up one of the nation’s cultural bastions, the National Football League. There have been calls for boycotting, not just the games, but boycotting NFL sponsors. And TV ratings have been down.  If the fans lose interest, income will go down, the owners will suffer, and eventually the players will suffer, not to mention all the people who work for the NFL and NFL teams in various capacities from grounds keepers, secretaries, accountants, etc. This could very well lead to a recession, especially if the left continues to attack and destroy other institutions.

Like Bill O’Reilly said last night on Hannity, left not only wants to destroy President Trump, they want to destroy his supporters, and they want to destroy the United States of America and build it back up according to their specifications, starting with a new constitution, the abolishment of the electoral college, the abolishment the three branches of government and the system of checks and balances. And who can predict what else. It’s “1984,” folks.

On Hannity last night, I noticed a slight apprehension that pervaded the Bill O’Reilly segment. Sean and Bill were both critical of the main stream media reiterating that it was as corrupt as it’s ever been. With what our young people are being taught in the public schools, or not being taught in the public schools, they have no knowledge of this country and its history, except that America has allowed the institution of slavery and continues to oppress minorities. Furthermore, since the end of the cold war, they have not been taught or nor have they seen the evils of communism and the effects of socialism. Thus, many millennials think communism and socialism are good philosophies as compared to the evils of capitalism in which we now live under.

How can this happen when the Republicans have the house, the Senate, and the presidency? I’ll tell you how, the far left has the press, a press that lives to denigrate President Trump every day, a press that promotes the lies, the hatred, the bigotry and the hypocrisy emanating from the left. If the only news that you watch are snippets of the network news or a few minutes of CNN or MSNBC, all you hear is “Russia, Russia, Russia,” Trump’s a racist, Trump’s a misogynist, Trump’s a homophobe, all Trump cares about are his wealthy friends, his supporters are ignorant, especially those southern white conservative Christians.

With a corrupt media, that promotes the left and lies about the right.  a large segment of the population that knows nothing about the cold war and the evils of communism, and conservatives who are scared of their own shadows who tremble at the thought of being called a racist, we can easily lose this nation. This is no laughing matter.

LIBERALS ON ALAN COLMES

Fox Cable News personality, Alan Colmes, passed away on Thursday, February 23, 2017 after a brief illness. Alan will best be remembered as the liberal side of popular Fox News program, Hannity & Colmes which aired from 1996 to 2009.

Hannity &Colmes, along with The O’Reilly Factor were the first two shows I watched on FNC after my cable provider began offering FNC in late 2000. I was attracted to Hannity & Colmes because both sides were presented. I was just as much the conservative in 2000 as I am now. Alan was likable, but always wrong and it was obvious that the show was geared so that the conservative, Sean Hannity always got the upper hand. I always surmised that Alan was paid lots of money for that.

On the day that Alan passed away, I was out, and didn’t learn of his untimely death until late afternoon. I teared up. And it just so happened that I was thinking about Alan a few days before his death and wondered if there would ever be a chance that he and Sean would get together again.

That evening, I watched some of the tributes to Alan from a few the Fox News personalities. Even though most of these folks are conservative, you could tell that they were genuinely saddened by Alan’s death. Because Sean Hannity was at CPAC, Kimberly Guilfoyle was sitting in for him on Hannity. At the end of the show, Sean called in to talk about Alan. You could tell that he was in tears. Despite their political differences, the two were friends.

Of course, I couldn’t help but wonder what other liberals would say about Alan’s death. I had heard that many didn’t like him because he worked for Fox News. And while I couldn’t find anything after a few minutes of googling, I seem to remember that former President Barack Obama once chastised Alan because he worked for Fox News.  One of things I recall Sean mentioning is his on-air tribute to Alan was that Alan loved the Fox News, and I do remember Alan taking up for FNC when others would besmirch the network.

While I posted from the Wing Nut Gal Facebook page a blurb extending my sympathies to Alan’s family and shared it with my person FB friends, I do not remember seeing any liberal FB friends posting anything about Alan. Though, one liberal FB friend like my post.

Slate.com, the afternoon of Alan’s death posted an article entitled, Alan Colmes, Buffoon and Patsy, was Fox News’ Original Liberal Weakling. What a hateful title! Just another reason why liberals are the real haters in this country.

The article first dissed those on FNC who paid tribute to Alan, indicating that they were believable because “Colmes was the most absurd, useless, and mocked television personality in America for many years, precisely because he was nice.” Slate further indicated that not only was Alan a buffoon and a patsy, he played the role to perfection. As if the above wasn’t enough to demonstrate hate, Slate went on to describe the Hannity & Colmes show as a dreadful, morally bankrupt, Foxified version of Crossfire (a CNN show), that ran for a dozen years and birthed the even more dreadful and morally bankrupt Hannity. Slate also described Hannity & Colmes, as racist, homophobic, and Islamophobic.

While it was obvious that Alan was to often “stand down” and let Sean get in the last word, the words Slate used to describe Alan’s role on the show were egregiously over the line. Patsy, buffoon? Not hardly.

Alan’s leaving Hannity & Colmes coincided with the inauguration of President Barack Obama in January, 2009. FNC indicated that Alan wanted to do more with his radio show, and Sean was given his own show. Alan continued to do guest appearances, more notable appearing with sister-in-law, Monica Crowley, on Bill O’Reilly’s, “Barack and a Hard Place” segment. Slate indicated that this was a demotion. That’s unknown.

Slate went on to indicate that Alan made liberals look dumb, and to millions of Americans, Alan Colmes was liberalism. Alan certainly didn’t make liberals look dumb. Though, in my opinion, Alan made liberals look nice when the left-leaning media outlets were making liberals look not so nice. Alan was a top-notch example of a liberal and liberalism. Isaac Chotiner, the author of this piece did say that Alan was not a complete moron because he was smart enough to know he was being used, but took the money that his services demanded.

Chotiner ended the article by saying that we can mourn the fact that Alan won’t be around to watch the political era that he, as an important cog in the Fox News machine, helped to usher in, but the rest of us have no choice. Could Chotiner possibly be partially blaming Alan Colmes for Hillary’s defeat and Donald Trump’s victory?

While I have heard no liberals other than the ones on FNC, and there are liberals who work for FNC, comment on Alan Colmes’ death, the article that is the subject of this post exudes more hate for Alan, now that he’s no longer with us, than I can fathom.

Alan, you deserve better from your fellow liberals. Rest in Peace.

FREEDOMS LOST

GrowingUpFree

A week or so ago, I shared the above meme on my personal FB page, and had a couple of folks to take issue with it.

As you can see, it is a picture of an elderly couple who is supporting Donald Trump because they grew up in a free America and want the same for their grand kids. Issue was taken because it was felt that while America was a free country that freedom wasn’t granted to everyone, particularly people of color, women, homosexuals, immigrants, etc. And those groups are still fighting for equality and justice.

The couple in this meme look to be in their mid-seventies to early eighties, making them born somewhere around 1940. I’m well aware that women weren’t give the right to vote until 1920, that civil rights legislation was not passed until 1964, and the majority of women held the traditional women’s occupations of nurse, school teacher, secretary, housewife, etc. until things began expanding for women in the early seventies.

Whenever someone, especially someone white, expresses a desire to turn back the hands of time, liberals and those who lean left consider that person a racist, sexist, homophobic because they long for a time when certain groups didn’t have the rights and privileges they have today. That is most likely not the case and to assume so is stereotyping.

Over my lifetime, we, as Americans, have lost freedoms. Because these freedoms have been lost over time, most people don’t notice. Furthermore, when we’re asked to give up a freedom, we are told that it’s no big deal, just give us this one little tiny thing and we won’t ask for anything else.

A major freedom that Americans have lost is the right to live without health insurance. With the advent of Obamacare, individuals are now required to purchase health insurance or pay a fine. Never before had the federal government required its citizens to purchase something. Because so many Americans cannot afford the sky-rocketing health insurance premiums, they’ve lost the freedom to seek medical attention should they get sick. While it certainly isn’t wise to go without health insurance, even for a minute, we no longer have that freedom. In addition to the above, many of us who are paying exorbitant healthcare premiums, no longer have the freedom to spend a substantial amount our money as we wish. There are some things that I need and some things that I want. But because of Obamacare, I’m having to pay so much for health insurance and healthcare, that I’m not able to purchase some of these things.

Those who settled in America, coming from Europe, sought freedom from religious persecution. Up until recently, we did have freedom to practice our religion or to not practice a religion, even though this country was founded on Judeo Christian principles. We’re currently witnessing people being forced to choose between their jobs and their faith. That’s an abomination. And Hillary Clinton has opined that the American people are going to have to alter their beliefs to fit within the laws this government has passed and plans to pass.

While the first amendment is still in force, freedom of speech and expression have been expotentially diminished, particularly over the last 7-1/2 years. This past Saturday afternoon, a star running back on my football team took the ball and scampered a substantial distance to a touchdown in a hostile stadium. After scoring the touchdown, the young man, displayed the palm of his gloved hand, containing an ‘A’ for Alabama, to a Tennessee fan sitting on the front row of the end zone. The announcers questioned whether that was over-doing it, and there have been many threads on social media and other forums discussing this. Some people were indicating that as long as the player didn’t touch the fan, it was okay, but still showed lack of class. Chances are, when you are in an event arena containing over 100,000 humans and one mangy blue tic hound, you’re going to get touched. Twenty-five years ago, this would not have been an issue.

Today, you can’t have an opinion differing from that of the “tolerant” left without being harassed and called names.

The Obama administration has also been hinting that some sort of government controlled truth squad should be established to filter the news that’s transmitted to the public. When I started this blog 2-1/2 years ago, I knew that I would be denigrated by the left for my views because it was happening to all conservatives, with some on the left calling for an end to the broadcasts of such folks as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. Some time ago, a friend said to me, “Nancy, you say you don’t let what people say to you and write about you, bother you; but I think it bothers you more than you’re willing to admit.” Shouldn’t I have the right to express my opinion without harassment and fear?

I could write a book on lost freedoms, those the elderly couple in the meme probably had in mind. However, the theme of the person who took issue with this meme seemed to want to stress the point that America was a bad country and had been taught that in school, and somehow this meme was racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and misogynistic. Have I left something out?

This country was founded less than 250 years ago by people seeking a better life than they had under European rule. The visions our founding fathers had for this country had never been tried before. When the United States of America was established, there was no other country on earth like it. While I certainly believe the creators of this nation were aided by God, they were also mere mortals. Being an experiment like no other, it’s absolutely unreasonable to think that as this nation grew, mistakes weren’t going to be made, that some old world tendencies and practices wouldn’t be ported over to the new world. America was not the first country or culture to practice slavery. America was also not the first country to round people up, drive them from their homes, and place them on reservations or in internment camps. If you think that women had the right to vote in the old world, I got some swamp land in Louisiana in which you might be interested.

Because the United States of America was established as a free nation, we had put in a mechanism whereby our wrongs could be righted. Through the power of the first amendment, people were allowed to speak their mind, protest, and use the press to bring about change, and that’s just what happened.

If you look at how old civilization is, from a Biblical standpoint, this world is over 6,000 years old. This nation was only created about 240 years ago. In that short period of time, the USA has become the greatest nation on earth. Sure there are other free countries out there, but they copied us.

Slavery was eliminated in 1865, women were given the right to vote in 1920, plus civil rights legislation was passed in 1964. Forty-four years or one generation after the Civil Rights bill was passed, America elected its first black president. Even though I don’t agree with him on one thing and don’t care for him, he was elected by a majority of the American people, and just a mere 44 years after the barriers were lifted.

The older couple in the meme feels that if Hillary Clinton is elected president more of our freedoms will be lost. I agree with them. Freedom of speech and freedom to bear arms are being attacked, along with religious freedom. I agree with the message that is being conveyed by the meme.

BARAK OBAMA HAS DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY ALONG MANY LINES

A meme from “Go Left” appeared on my Facebook news feed stating the following: “People yell that President Obama has divided America. But Obama didn’t divide our country, their unwarranted hatred of him did. Electing him was like turning on a light in a dark room and exposing the cockroaches.”

GoLeftMeme

There are differences of opinion on how we should govern ourselves because our founding fathers set up our nation that way. Because of the way this nation was set up, we have the right to voice our opinions without fear of government reprisal.

There’s not one issue with which I agree with Barak Obama, and I have the right to say that. Since Obama has been in office, he has “trashed” Republicans repeatedly. Plus in the first term of his presidency, he called upon folks to listen for any comments that disparaged his policies and agenda. This is in contrast to former President George W. Bush, who, many times indicated that Americans had the right to disagree with him. President Bush even met with parents, spouses, and other family members of those military personnel who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but were against the wars.

Barak Obama was elected to the presidency to be the president of all Americans, not just Democrats, not just blacks and other minorities. Instead of being the president of the United States, Barak Obama didn’t waste any time in interjecting himself into a local level dust-up in which he had no business becoming involved. This incident involved Professor Louis Gates, Jr., a black professor, who was returning to his Cambridge, Massachusetts home after a trip to China. Finding the door to his house jammed, he was trying to open it when he was arrested by police Sargent James Crowley. Sargent Crowley was responding to a 911 call in which the caller reported there were men breaking and entering Gates’ residence. Gates was never charged.

On July 22, 2009, six days after the incident, Barak Obama said the following: “I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that…the police acted stupidly…there is a history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” Subsequently a “beer summit” was held at the White House where Professor Gates and Officer Crowley were treated to beers with Obama.

Again, this was something in which the current president should have never involved himself. It was a low-level local matter. If the local NAACP wanted to get involved, that would probably be okay, but the incident was nothing close to the level where the leader of the free world should be putting his priorities, including protecting the people of this country, aside to become involved in a local dust-up.

The cases of Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were also local level incidents where the president had no business interjecting himself into, much less sending a representative to the funeral of Michael Brown, a thug who, before he was shot, robbed a convenience store and then while being apprehended, tried to take Police Officer Darren Wilson’s gun away. Subsequently, representatives of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which arose out of the Michael Brown shooting, was predicated on a lie, and currently advocates the killing of law enforcement officers and the destruction of property, were invited to the White House.

Not only has this president sought to divide this country along racial lines, he has sought to divide us along socio-economic lines. He has constantly harped that the rich don’t pay enough in taxes and has told low and middle income individuals that the rich are evil and anyone who is rich somehow became that through nefarious actions. He has further indicated that the rich, particularly the rich Republicans hate the poor and want them to suffer when, in reality, it is the other way around. Because no one ever got rich receiving entitlements such as food stamps and welfare from the government, we want as many folks as possible to be off these programs so they can prosper.

The president and his henchmen have also led lower and middle income individuals to believe that the Republicans don’t care about the environment by constantly preaching the doctrine of man-made climate change. This administration and its followers have also indicated that Republicans want dirty air, dirty water, and to throw Grandma off the cliff (a phrase often used by conservative commentator, Sean Hannity). In the liberals’ quest to gain as much control over our lives as they possibly can, they have demonized fossil fuels and fracking, an innovative way to safely and efficiently extract oil natural gas from beneath the earth’s surface. Fracking was developed by the private sector oil companies…the government had nothing to do with it, except for trying to shut the process down. Because of this innovation, energy prices have decreased, giving low income and middle income individuals some much needed relief.

Of course, the liberals would have you believe that they are champions of lower and middle class individuals and that the Republicans only champion the rich. Well, the “tolerant” left won’t even acknowledge that there is information available that refutes man-made climate change. They are so anxious to cram that theory down our throats and to preach to the American people that unless we immediately get off fossil fuels and go to green energy, we’re doomed. But as President Obama indicated, the price of energy will necessarily rise. The president wants energy costs to rise so we’ll use less of it. If this president and the liberals were really champions of the poor and the middle class, they would be anxious for any discovery out there which would delineate the climate change theory.

Thus, we’re just as divided along socio-economic lines as racial lines.

And let’s not forget religious lines. Even though this president claims to be a Christian, he never misses a change to disparage Christianity. However, when it comes to Islam, he constantly advises the American people to not judge the nation or religion of Islam based on the actions of a few. Of course, after Dylan Roof, the shooter of black church members in Charleston, was seen in a picture on social media with a Confederate battle flag, anyone who so much as owns a Confederate flag belt buckle was labeled a racist, a white supremacist, etc. The president has also referred to Christians and gun owners as “clinging to their guns and their Bibles.”

I don’t see how anyone in their right mind, could say that hatred for Barak Obama divided this country. It was Obama, his administration and liberals at all levels who have divided this country, not the unwarranted hatred of him as the “tolerant” left would have you believe.
