I’m not a fan of Joe Biden but compared to Bernie Sanders he’s definitely the right choice. Last night my Democratic friends basically proved that was the case in Super Tuesday. They also proved $$ and social media marketing don’t have the reach that previously believed as Joe Biden won basically on momentum from South Carolina only. Biden did well in states that appeared were leaning toward Bernie such as Texas, Massachusetts and Oklahoma proving that socialism & anti-Israel stance is not sweeping the nation. G-D willing my Democrat friends will continue this string till November 3rd and then realize on that date the next choice right choice lays in Donald J. Trump.
I figuratively and millions and millions of my fellow citizen from this country and around the world do this (picture above and below) as we “invest in a political campaign”. While we buy material objects we enjoy and services that help us function we burn our $$’s in our political system. Yes, if our candidate wins there might be a payoff in terms of our taxes, infrastructure we’re on and/or general life conditions but let’s face it this occurs usually years later if we’re lucky. Years that could get us a return on our investment a whole lot quicker and with a better return if it went into a real market instead. Yet we continue to make this poor investment because in the end the money might get burned or thrown down a sink yet many of us are not investing in our good but the country’s we love. We hope and pray this investment pays off not just for us but for those who live here with us as well. This is quite ironic because those same people we invest for can often use their own $’s to invest in the opposite direction. Ow well I guess that is the marketplace…of ideas. Not a great return in profits but hopefully wealth and love for others.
I’m entirely behind starting a JFA campaign today!! The JFA (Justice for All) campaign will require any individual seeking elected office or who is a duly elected officeholder to adhere to the following principles (below). This campaign is without party affiliation; it is about noted values one agrees to adhere to and has proven they have done so in the past.
- Any Impeachment proceedings can only occur if at least 5% of the elected officials of such party which the accused belong to support such an inquiry.
- Articles of Impeachment must solely be based on actual recorded/ previously prosecuted criminal law.
- The defendant will receive full and fair proceedings and include the ability to call their own witnesses, bring their own testimony, and thoroughly question those that have accused them of illegal activity.
- Furthermore, any proceedings that have occurred in the past that have not met such criteria will be declared null and void and voted on by said body.
- Those who have brought false charges in such proceedings and other criminal matters must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and legislation/resources must be given so that occurs ASAP.
- Individuals found not guilty of a crime must have their verdict of vindications publicized in full print at the prosecutors and accusers’ expense.
- Investigations should occur for those that are exonerated to discover if any biases (race, religion, political, sexual) happened that might have brought on these false accusations and the report must be released to the public within a stated time frame.
FOOTNOTE- Would you support and join this campaign? Why or why not?
The problem we face in the Pro-Life community is that we are fighting against a profitable business with no alternative in the marketplace. For us abortion is a morale issues concerning life but for many of those who work in the industry it’s about their own personal life and the bacon it provides on their tables. Therefore if we want to win their hearts we also have to win many a pocketbook as well. Here are a few steps (below) which will lesson the blood money.
(1) We locate or provide paying positions that would offer better benefits and/or pay then those in the abortion industry.
(2) Where Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers offer positions (job fairs in colleges, health care fairs) we openly offer counter positions.
(3) Information is also provided to those who currently work at such clinics with contact numbers and trainers who could help them find other positions free of charge.
(4) Centers for Unplanned Pregnancy open up to help those individuals deal with keeping their child to term and provide the resources for child and mother to be successful every step of the way. These places pay equal or better wages and/or benefits then those who work at abortion clinics.
As of this writing, Hurricane Dorian It’s no longer the powerhouse Cat 5 that devastated the northwestern Bahamas, but it’s now bigger. It’s a high-end Category 2 hurricane with strong winds that cover a larger area, capable of generating giant waves and pushing large amounts of water toward the shore.
While this storm has been a bit unpredictable, one thing we know for sure. It doesn’t stop to see whether one is carrying a Republican, Democratic, or Independent card. It just attempts to destroy whatever or whoever gets in its way.
Millions on the east coast are being affected, and news headlines should say “Hurricane Dorian Ends Politics.” For when a storm of such magnitude is about to impact so many people,it’s time to ignore the political party labels and focus instead on helping each other as fellow human beings.
Wouldn’t it be great if we hold our leaders accountable for the actions they take before, during and after this historic storm and not necessarily on which party they might belong to or which party “we’re supposed to support”?
Big storms have been known to end political careers. Those who come across as insincere or unfocused in the middle of a natural disaster can find their political career over. Google will tell you the political fallout Chicago Mayor Michael Bilandic, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, and former Massachusetts governors Michael Dukakis and Deval Patrick endured from storms.
Keep an eye out as well for the politicians who will try to score cheap political points from a devastating hurricane (you know there will be a few). Those are the folks who need to be voted out in the next election!
Who knows, maybe in some way G-D brings us these severe storms to teach us this fundamental lesson of general humanity that requires us all to live & work together as one.
While opinion polls are a pillar of life in the political and communications communities, every four years Americans become fixated on polls for a few short months during a presidential election year.
I hate to break the news to you, though; any political poll taken today will be biased to those on the left. The reason is that many people from the right don’t trust the media and either refuse to be involved in such a poll or, if they do participate, tell the liberal pollsters what they believe they want to hear just to screw with their findings.
And apparently, I’m not the only one who doesn’t believe polls. According to a survey at the end of 2018 by The Hill-HarrisX, most registered voters (52 percent) are doubtful about polls they hear about in the liberal news media. Twenty-nine percent of respondents said they don’t believe most polls but do trust a few, while 19 percent said they “almost never” believe that polls are accurate.
There are also those who I like to call “closet Republicans” who fear that giving their opinion will lead to being stigmatized and even harassed. Why? Because the left has made being a conservative socially unacceptable.
The risks of “coming out” as a Republican, or worse as a Trump supporter, can be severe (remember what Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro did?) As a result, many conservative-minded folks simply keep their mouths shut and stay quiet about their political views. Former President Richard Nixon frequently spoke of these people as a “silent majority” that was invisible in polls.
Our current political climate demonizes the right is one that will lead to more division AND surprise election results, just like we saw three years ago. The American “silent majority” are regular mainstream voters unwilling to be branded racists due to their support of smaller government. On election day, these same conservatives show up at the voting booth and pull the lever for Republican candidates.
So don’t believe the political polls you see that will precede the 2020 election because they’ll continue to be inaccurate. I think the fear of being ostracized and harassed has been a driving factor behind Republican voters misleading not only their friends and family but pollsters as well.
The only way the polls will be accurate is if they demoralize people enough that they don’t show up for the election, proving the lying polls reliable in the end.
The “Transparency Law” would guarantee that any business conducted by public servants be open to those citizens within a pre-arranged time unless publicly classified as a secret by an executive authority. Furthermore after a new administration is in charge that “secret information” will have to still be deemed as such for it to continue to have said classification and this must be a public acknowledgement. Citizens could then seek a court order after a pre-arranged time to have said material declassified and released to the public. The “Transparency Law” would make sure that the government is run for the good of the people not those they might look to protect.
There’s an old saying that begins with “those who scream the loudest…”, which usually ends with the implication that they themselves have the most to hide. The same thing can be said about those who point the finger at others over what they claim are “racist words.” As I’ve said in a previous post, being so quick to pull the racist card against innocent parties is hateful and bigoted. Yet we see some Democrats do this all the time! I think the race card is played so often and bandied about so easily that it is leading to a dilution of its impact.
Anyway, back to my point. When someone claims every ” ” (fill in the blank with any group identity) is offended by such comments as if everyone in a certain group should and must feel the same way about those words, they are far overreaching. That is stereotyping in its finest.
Just because you’re offended by political comment doesn’t mean you speak for the whole group. Individuals are unique; we come from different areas, backgrounds, families, etc. and thus have different viewpoints and experiences.
Take The Squad and “send her back” chant and the reactions from both sides of the political spectrum, for example. The people chanting “send her back” are not representative of all, or even a majority, of conservatives. President Trump disavowed the message of the chant Thursday, telling reporters “I was not happy with it. I disagree with it.”
By the same token, Former Vice President Joe Biden has stated that the four members of The Squad don’t represent “the majority of Democrats” who won back the House of Representatives last year.
The takeaway here is make your own, logical decisions about a topic, comment, or person. Take a moment to reflect on what the core issue and how you really feel about it. Don’t believe everything the media tells you or shows you. They want ratings, and the we all know they try to increase ratings by drumming up controversy and extremism.
It’s time we give the voice of the individual a microphone as well as the voices of “the mob.” Don’t let someone speak on your behalf; your voice is powerful. Respect the position of others but don’t let them cover you with their verbal blanket.
Is President Trump a racist? The answer is no. He doesn’t have a sexist, racist, homophobic bone in his body; he insults everyone equally! It doesn’t matter whether you’re as white as John McCain or as black as Colin Kaepernick. Whether you’re a woman, man, or in-between, if he doesn’t agree with your words or deeds, you’ll know it.
He happily offends anyone who disagrees with him or who doesn’t agree with his position on things. He’s an equal opportunity attacker who doesn’t judge by one’s looks, but by one’s character.
His tweets to AOC suggesting that American citizens leave and go somewhere else if they don’t like it were fueled by his love of our country. He is American through and through and believes that those who represent our country should speak highly of America and not hurl vile insults against our nation regularly. He never said anything about color, and he is right in calling out AOC and her squad for inciting hatred and division.
Senator Lindsey Graham says it all with this:
“We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country, they’re calling the guards along our Border (the Border Patrol Agents) Concentration Camp Guards, they accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the Benjamin’s, they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject. What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country – See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!”
Here’s the thing: AOC and her squad are quick to take things personally and pull the race card. What’s even more astounding is that AOC has pulled the racist card not only on Trump but Nancy Pelosi as well. A member of her own party! By doing that, she shows her real character. Ironically, being so quick to pull the racist card against innocent parties is hateful and bigoted.
President Trump isn’t afraid to say it as he sees it. Make no mistake; he sees the words and action of people, not the appearance and supposed power they command. Maybe we all can follow suit and judge everyone as individuals instead of the group they belong to as well.
