A Time For Choosing, But Who?

Donald Trump laid out his policies during the convention speech. He spoke of the constitution only once, in passing, during his speech. This deeply disturbs me.

I seriously wonder if he will bypass the limits of his constitutional authority as president, if he wins the election. Some of what he proposes feels good, but, will never get passed.

There is a nagging feeling in my gut that something is wrong here.

Clinton is completely unacceptable, has no moral compass, is past feeling, is suspected of ordering killings of some of her closest domestic political allies, wears the Benghazi massacre on her heart forever, sucked at being secretary of state, has a ruthless political machine in her back pocket and has earned a crooked reputation.

She cares nothing for the nation. Evidence of that is in the details of her email scandal. They should lock her up and throw away the key. With Hillary, I know what I am getting; genuine garbage. With Trump, I remain uncertain of what is coming forth.

What nags at me constantly—is the fact that I am honestly unsure if he will govern as he has laid out in the convention. His political past has been identified with the other party, until recently. How much will that play into his decision making if he becomes president?

I have never felt so uncertain, politically, then this year. There are so many uncertainties yet to be resolved. I know ONE THING for certain, Hillary Clinton will NEVER receive my vote. Now I just have to figure out who else is going to get it.

 

 

The Reason For Disarmament Is Political Control Of Our Own Lives

The phrase “Gun violence” is clever language. This phrase, incognito, attempts to strip law abiding Americans of the God given right to bear arms. The question here is: “How can you strip a God-given right away from the people of the United States? The answer: You never will because it is a God-given right, not a man-made one.”

The problem with gun violence, in large part, emanates from cities and states that insist gun control is the answer. Ironically, those cities and states that possess this thinking pattern generally end up with chronic, cyclical murder rates and other types of serious crime. Those cities and states under this type of governance are run by democrats.

It is not very hard to see the causal relationship between the disarmament of the American people and the true nature of disarmament motivation. Unfortunately, it is leftist policies which produce such disastrous results. No Second Amendment and the political elite take total control. No Second Amendment and “We, The People,” become “We, The Beggars.” No Second Amendment and we have no First Amendment. What’s next–if that happens?

Will The Philanderer Become President?

Donald Trump has had extra-marital affairs of public record.He is an immoral, disrespectful user of women.

When you have public affairs with a woman you are married to, get divorced from your first wife partly because of that affair, marry the first adulterer who becomes the second wife, have a second affair with another adulterer, divorce the second wife, and eventually marry Milania, his current wife, who has allegedly spread naked for a magazine, what does that tell you?

Ted Cruz is a one woman man and always has been. Donald Trump has an immoral, soap opera type existence. Ted Cruz is upright, has a moral compass, is consistently courteous, kind and genuinely benevolent. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has questionable character.

We cannot have a man for president of the United States who cannot control his desires and who refuses to give his whole heart and mind to the woman he has married. Donald Trump treats women as if they are discardable. Is that the way he will treat the office of the Presidency of the United States, as if it is discardable?

 

 

Sykes vs Trump; Sykes Scores A Touchdown

Charlie Sykes, a prominent radio show personality in Wisconsin, interviews Donald Trump. Sykes asks questions and often, as is the case, Trump sidesteps about 1/2 his questions. Listen carefully.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump called into Wisconsinite Charlie Sykes’ radio show just days ahead of the state’s primary, unaware that the show…

TRUMP, THE HYPOCRITE

Glenn Beck Teaches Why We Must Choose The Right Candidate Now

A Confident Nation, Not An Arrogant One

The type of confidence Heaven bestows upon individuals is that of a humble confidence. It has God’s stamp of approval. There is an aura of meekness which attends this real type of confidence. This great blessing has a spiritual strengthening power only known to those who seek for it and are inclined to line up their lives with God’s will.

The type of fraudulent confidence the world bestows upon individuals is that of arrogance. Arrogance is the counterfeit form of heavenly confidence. Arrogance has an aura of hubris and egotism at the root of its weakness.

Arrogance boasts of itself. Humility does not. Arrogance provides a false sense of identity for its wearer. True humility positively contributes to one’s true identity. Arrogance automatically assumes a bogus sense of superior status. Humility helps to put into proper perspective our place and purpose in this world.

Arrogance can hinder personal and family growth. Humility facilitates personal and family growth. Arrogance sometimes damages and even ruins relationships. Humility can aid in healing those ties.

As our nation passes through tumultuous times, let us remember her in our prayers. As we prepare to choose another president for our country, let us choose wisely. Let us choose a president who will be humble and not arrogant. Who will uplift and not demean. Who will always act according to the Constitution of the United States and never sidestep its inspired principles.

We must be careful not to douse the flame in the torch of liberty with the spirit of individual arrogance. Let us be thoughtful and study carefully as we choose our national leader.

May God bless us to pick up the torch of liberty and light its flame with the humble confidence God provides.

 

 

 

Dear Trump Fan, So You Want Someone To ‘Tell It Like It Is’? OK, Here You Go.

by Matt Walsh of THE BLAZE

February 22, 2016

Dear Donald Trump Fan,

I’m going to tell you the truth, friend.

You say you want the truth. You say you want someone who speaks boldly and brashly and bluntly and “tells it like it is” and so on. According to exit polls in South Carolina, voters who want a president who “tells it like it is” are an essential demographic for Trump, just as they’re an essential demographic for Judge Judy and Dr. Phil.

You say you want abrupt and matter-of-fact honesty, and you want it so much, you’ll make a man president for it regardless of whether he defies every principle and value you claim to hold.
Personally, I think you’re lying, and I’m going to test my theory. In fact, I believe I’ve already proven my theory because you’re now offended that I called you a liar. But Trump has called half of the Earth’s population a liar at some point over the past seven months, and you loved every second of it. You said you loved it not out of cruelty or spite, but out of admiration for a man who’s willing to call people liars — even if he’s lying when he does it.Yet here I am employing the same tactic — accurately, I might add — and you recoil indignantly.

Over the course of this campaign season I’ve said many harsh words about you and your leader, all of which I stand by, but you’ve never respected my harsh words or the harsh words of any Trump critic. Indeed, you insist that our tough criticism of you only vindicates your support of Trump, while Trump’s vulgar and dishonest criticism of everyone else also vindicates your support of Trump. You’re tired of people being critical, but you love Trump because he’s critical. You say you like Trump for his style, but you hate his style when it’s directed at him or you.
You say you like Trump for his style, but you hate his style when it’s directed at him or you. You say you want someone who’s politically incorrect. You’re so desperate for political incorrectness — a supremely ridiculous reason to vote a guy into the Oval Office, but never mind — that your esteem for him only grows when he belittles the disabled, mocks American prisoners of war, calls women dogs, calls his opponents p*ssies, calls for the assassination of women and children, says he’d like to have sex with his daughter, brags about his adultery, etc.

You’re excited by the most vile statements and most cretinous behavior imaginable — not remotely deterred by any of it, no matter how many times he gloats over infidelity, curses his opponents, and publicly ogles his own children — because, you say, it’s politically incorrect. That is how unfathomably desperate you are for someone to come along and just say what’s on their mind, you claim.

You’re so fed up with political correctness that you celebrate political incorrectness without distinguishing between the healthy sort and the “LOL I slept with married women and I’m not sorry” sort. It doesn’t matter if you don’t personally agree, you say, you just respect the hell out of someone who’s willing to shoot straight, even when ”shooting straight” means comparing Ben Carson to a child molester, calling the entire electorate of Iowa stupid, and referring to women as “pieces of ass.”

Trump won South Carolina on the support of Evangelical Christians who were so impressed with his alleged straight talk that they overlooked the fact that he’s a crass, cruel, unrepentant philanderer who says he does not need God’s forgiveness, and who praises Planned Parenthood as “wonderful” and his radically pro-abortion sister as a “phenomenal” candidate for the Supreme Court. That’s how much you pretend to admire bluntness in a man. So much that it overrides literally everything else.
By your logic, then, you should be filled with an immense and irresistible affection for me when I call Donald Trump a crooked, underhanded con artist and you a reckless, ignorant dupe. You should fall madly in love with me when I accuse Donald Trump of being a spoiled, overgrown brat and you of being a cultish groupie enamored with fame. You should well up with pride and salute me as I mention that Donald Trump is a stuffed, soiled diaper sagging in the pants of American politics and you’re the poor, pitiful sap trying to elect it president.

You don’t have to agree, but man, isn’t it refreshing that I’m willing to tell you what’s on my mind? Shouldn’t you leave a thousand comments under this article praising me for being politically incorrect, willing to attack not only Donald Trump but his blue collar supporters? In fact, if you’re sincere in your alleged regard for the bold and audacious approach, I expect you’ll have launched a nationwide write-in campaign for me by tomorrow morning.

But that’s not how this works, is it? You’ve already melted into a boiling puddle of rage and self-pity, haven’t you? You’re incensed and offended that I could be so “judgmental” and “dismissive” and “critical,” and 100 other qualities you find so orgasmically satisfying when they’re displayed by The Great Trump.

You say you want some straight-shooting, honest, politically incorrect tough talk, but that’s simply a lie. If it were true, my inbox would not be filled to capacity with cartoonishly shocked and outraged Trump fans every time I utter a word of criticism in his direction. It shouldn’t matter that my criticisms are sharp and severe; you ought to revere me all the more for it. I thought you were tired of people walking on egg shells?

It turns out you don’t want Donald Trump to walk on egg shells, but you have fortified your own perimeter with a thick layer of eggshells and you expect anyone who comes near it to tip toe with extreme caution. It turns out you want to be coddled and cuddled and pandered to and excused. You’re in favor of whatever Trump says because Trump said it, but when it comes to how people talk about you and him, you expect to be treated like a soft and delicate flower.
You flock eagerly to a flamboyant, authoritarian billionaire fascist, and you feel you ought to be completely insulated from criticism while you do so. Everyone else ought to be subject to relentless and profane invective from an elderly Manhattan real estate heir, but you and he should be above reproach.
Tell it like it is? I’ll tell you like it is: In my life I’ve never encountered a group of people more averse to being told how it is. Of course, you believe you’re entitled to this attitude because you’re “angry.” Your “anger” indulges you with the moral authority to take leave of your reason and your common sense. Your anger, you believe, places you beyond judgment, even as you attempt to drag this country into a future of (more) tyranny and cultism.

You believe the rest of us ought to take your supposedly righteous rage into account while you refuse to take anything but your own infatuation with spectacle and celebrity into account. Whatever concerns we raise, including the ones I’m raising now, can be written off in an instant. “WE’RE TIRED OF POLITICS AS USUAL! WE’RE ANGRY!” And that’s supposed to be some kind of rhetorical hall pass, permitting you to do and say what you please unchallenged.

Well let me be the first and perhaps the only to say this out loud, although millions of people share this sentiment quietly: I don’t care about your anger. There’s some more truth for you, friend. There’s some more “tellin’ it like it is.” Two can play at this game, you know. And the only difference is that I’m right.

I couldn’t take your anger seriously even if I wanted to. After all, you say you’re angry that people are too afraid to speak their minds, but, as we’ve established, you don’t really want anyone but Donald Trump to speak his mind.

You say you’re angry about the corruption in Washington, but you support a slimy swindler and fraudster who boasts of his bribery schemes and makes no apologies for shamelessly exploiting political corruption for personal gain.

You say you’re angry about illegal immigration, but you rally around a guy who supported amnesty as recently as 2013, employed illegal immigrants and donated millions of dollars to open borders politicians like Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Hillary Clinton.

You say you’re angry about the establishment, but you worship a candidate who said only a few weeks ago that “you got to be a little establishment” in order to get things done, and who admits he “was the establishment” right until he ran for president.

You say you’re angry that Republicans won’t fight, but you hail as a warrior the same guy who says he’ll happily “work with the Democrats,” which probably explains why Sen. Harry Reid praised him and Jimmy Carter called him “malleable.”

It is not uncommon for me to hear from Trump fans that they’re angry at “GOPe” Republicans for “cutting deals” and “compromising” in one breath, and in the very next that they want Trump because he’s really good at cutting deals and compromising.

Right down the list, you are blithely embracing every single thing you say you’re so angry about. Trump is the very embodiment of corruption, deception, cowardice, and elitism. He is precisely the sort of man you supposedly detest. Trump is exploiting America’s frustration with men like Trump.

Trump is running against Trump. You are voting for Trump because you hate Trump. You are angry at politicians because they act like Trump and make deals like Trump and go to cocktail parties with men like Trump and look down on the little guy like Trump and possess the integrity of Trump, and so you’re solution is to elect Trump.

Your anger at Trump leads you to Trump. Perhaps this explains why you’re so worried about politicians who are “controlled by donors,” but you aren’t at all concerned about a politician who is the very donor you didn’t want controlling the political process. “I’m sick of these donors influencing the government! I have an idea: let’s make one president!”

Trump is the very embodiment of corruption, deception, cowardice, and elitism. It seems more like schizophrenia than anger. Aside from chronic mental illness, there are only two explanations for a person who avidly supports the continuation of a thing because he’s angry at that thing: either he’s fantastically stupid, or he’s not actually angry at all.

Friend, I should tell you the most popular theory among non-Trump supporters is that you fall into the former category. When we talk to each other in private, almost everyone agrees you’re stupid. Again, you should, by your own words, hold me in the highest esteem for telling you this uncomfortable fact. People think you’re stupid, just as they thought about Barack Obama supporters in 2008.

The parallels between the two groups are indeed profound, as exit polls attest. Once again, people are voting because “they want change,” unconcerned by the fact that the change is ambiguous, non-specific, and, in fact, not really ”change” at all. A lot of people, grasping for an explanation as to how voters might be suckered by the same shtick three times in a row, just chalk it up to stupidity.

By the way, you should doubly love what I’m doing here because it appears very close to apophasis, which is a rhetorical device where the speaker coyly makes an accusation or insult in the context of denying or distancing himself from the unkind remark. “Many people believe my neighbor Jim is a thieving jerk who borrowed my garden hose last July and didn’t return it, but I’m not going to talk about it.” That kind of thing.

It’s a strategy Trump employs all the time, and you always go along with it, like when he called Megyn Kelly a bimbo by saying “I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo because that would be politically incorrect.” Like clockwork, you insisted that he didn’t call Megyn Kelly a bimbo; he merely brought up the fact that he would call her a bimbo if it weren’t so rude to do so.

Well, in similar fashion, I’m not calling you stupid, I’m just saying that other people call you stupid. You should, therefore, defend me against any accusation that I’ve called you stupid, just as you would Trump. But the difference is that I’m not being coy here. I really don’t think you’re stupid. I certainly don’t think I’m any smarter than you. I subscribe to the second theory: I don’t believe you’re really all that angry.

Your anger, to whatever extent it exists at all, is surface level. It’s a purely emotional experience, fed by a mob mentality. You’re angry in the way a rioter or looter is angry. Your temper might be flaring and your heart rate jumping and you might be filled with the uncontrollable urge to break a window, but underneath that anger is really something much closer to boredom and apathy. You don’t feel a real, intense, profound, deep and meaningful disgust at the corruption and malfeasance in Washington, because if you did there is simply no way you would support a man like Trump.

Unless, like I said, you’re stupid. But you aren’t stupid, and a non-stupid person, a serious person, who truly, deeply, intensely loathes the current state of affairs, who genuinely desires that his country be revived for the sake of his children, would not be turning to a blustery, boorish reality TV character with a catchphrase and a fake tan for answers.

I’m just telling it like it is here, friend. I’m telling you what’s on my mind. I’m being completely and painfully honest with you. I don’t believe your anger. I think you want a spectacle, not a solution. A celebrity, not a statesman. A circus performer, not a leader. I think you want to be entertained. I think you’re not taking this seriously enough. I think you’re intellectually lazy so you’ve accepted authoritarianism as a stand-in for strength. I think you’re following the trend of the day. I think you’re wrapped up in media hype.

In other words, I think your anger, if it exists, is misplaced. You should be angry at yourself, because if this country falls finally and irrevocably into despotism, it’ll be your fault. You’ll have chosen it. You’ll have elected it and applauded it. That, my friend, is what makes me angry.

And that’s just how it is.

THE DONALD IN DIAPERS

1/26/2016

This is so ridiculous. Donald Trump has just announced he is skipping the debate this Thursday, 1/28/2016, moderated by Fox News.

The reason Trump gave for his absence this coming Thursday night was the tough, but fair-minded questions Megyn Kelly posed to him regarding women and Trump’s alleged maltreatment of many of them over the course of time. This was brought up at the August, 2015 FOX News debate.

Trump is an adult baby. He is ill-tempered and short fused. He often acts emotionally as though he is still in junior high. We can’t afford a president who regularly vacillates between 7-year-old behaviors and 70-year-old behaviors.

Americans need to feel confident that their president will make inspired decisions on their behalf. They don’t have time to wonder if he is going to be junior high-ish in his decisions today and an adult in his decisions tomorrow.

We need a mature grownup in the White House, not a childish, progressive bully who happens to be an adult—with a part-time junior high school mentality.

Below is a 1 hr 22 min. youtube  documentary on Donald Trump.
