Carly Fiorino and My Precious Time

August 11, 2015

So here we are a precious 14 months until the next presidential election.  It is great that there is nothing pressing going on while all these senators and governors run for president.  There are not thousands of Christians being murdered in the middle east.  There are not hundreds of black youth being murdered in the cities every day.   The Keystone pipeline is finished.  Obamacare has been discontinued and ISIS is no more. The border has been secured. Iran now will never have nuclear warheads and Clinton has been cleared of all suspicion.  

So, of course then it ’s a journalists priority to cover the election 24 – 7.  

Ehhhhhh, maybe not so much./s

It can be said after watching the first presidential debate for 2016 on Fox News Channel, that the candidates behave like contestants on American Idol, all trying to elbow their way to stardom.  The thing is, after a couple seasons we learned to start watching the show 3 weeks before the final vote.  In doing this we avoided wasting hours of precious time and brain cells watching the less talented and the undeserving.    

This plan translates directly to Fox’s election coverage.  If the talking heads at Fox are not taking every opportunity for public naval gazing, they are covering unlikely presidential nomination winners like Jim Gilmore.  Oh, and lets find out more about the old feud between Rosie O’Donnell and Trump.  Yeah thats the ticket. /s

Thank the Lord for Carly Fiorina.  She so intellectually outclasses most of the candidates from both major parties that she may have the effect of eliminating the lesser half at faster speed than would otherwise be.  Trump is no longer entertaining and not used to criticism so he should be folding soon.  Carly Fiorino is so quick and articulate, she makes Trump look like Triumph the Insult Comic rather than a candidate for high office.  Lets pray a few hopeless candidates will see the impossibility of their success in this and  leave the race sooner rather than later.  Are you listening Jeb Bush? Trump? Santorum?

In the meantime, Fox needs to break away from its make-up mirrors and do its job, like covering the news rather than trying to make the news or be part of the story like their liberal colleagues do.  

I’ll be passing on Fox for a while unless I hear it has suddenly remembered how to put its pants on front ways or management finally goes for dignity and professionalism rather than mud wrestling contests or indecent public exposure.   

Cruzin’ for a Bruzin’

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is running for President. Good. We need a conservative with the chutzpah of Obama but with genuine mental dexterity. The predatory media has already painted the target on Cruz’s post office mug shot and started the attack. Also Good. The more the media beat him up, the more the regular Joe will be drawn to hear him.

I’ve heard several news sources say he can’t win. Neither could Seabiscuit or the 1980 American Olympic Hockey Team So why should Cruz bother?

If I recall correctly, Bill Clinton couldn’t win either, since his opponent George H. W. Bush at one point during the first Gulf War, had a near 90 percent approval rating. Clinton got the nomination without much of a fight, since few even in his own party thought he had a prayer. Of course that hayseed Lincoln had no chance against Stephen Douglass either.

Ive seen a couple so called analysts get pretty hot under the collar about Cruz’s decision to run. If he’s so unlikely a victor, why are they so animated? Of course the odds are against Cruz simply from a mathematical point of view, but why the indignation? Some in the new media who claim the mantel of conservatism, also belittle his effort.

What are they afraid of?

What is it they know that they are not sharing?

They know that Americans are basically a conservative, law respecting and abiding people who are not to be taken for granted. They know that a conservative CAN win despite their indignation to the contrary. They know it and it scares the hell out of them that the peasantry can take a shot at retrieving power and succeed. Sure its tough, what with the cheating and the back stabbing and all that electioneering but it IS possible.

A Ted Cruz run will necessarily force other Republican candidates’ campaigns to lean right. The Cruz dynamism makes RINOs like Christie and JEB Bush look slow- witted, and angry by comparison mostly because they are.

Don’t get me wrong. I have not yet begun to trust Ted Cruz. however it is great thing that he is running. There is no reason on earth why anyone should be nominated because they deserve it , because its their turn or because the NY liberal media has already crowned them. There needs to be a good intelligent cleansing fight over the issues . The fight needs to be driven to the right so it can take place in a lane of the belief in honor, country and law and order for a change and Cruz is the man for that job.

Thanks, Ted

Our God is Awesome

Its not a matter of politics. Its one of faith. Our God, the God of Paul and David is NOT the one that Islam worships. For someone other than Jehovah Jireh to be worshipped in one of our churches is abhorrent to the worship of our God. Allowing other kinds of secular meetings in the basement of the church, but not prayer services to another entity; “Thou shall not have strange gods before me”. Its a free country, but our churches are still privately held.

Its good that the call to prayer did not come from the church, but that was only part of the problem.

Islamists enjoy carrying on about insults to Islam. Christians or Jews are clearly not entitled to be resistant to any kind of adverse abridgments to our faith and its precepts. There are all kinds of buildings in the Duke University campus, Muslim prayers need not take place in a christian church or synagogue.

Thank you Rev. Graham and I suspect that you are just getting warmed up.

Free Men or Slaves; The New Resistance

January 4, 2015

Considering that the House of Representatives’ vote for the speakership comes up Tuesday a reminder as to what is at stake can be made to us all. The House of Representatives can stop the wannabe diety and sovereign rule of Obama, if they care to. Things look pretty grim when so shortly after an outstanding conservative victory in the recent midterms, newly elected Mia Love is already talking about reelecting the current speaker.

It is up to us.

Call your Representatives and remind them today (202) 224-3121) of your expectations of them and of their vote.

Let us allow our first President, George Washington be our voice today as he was that day in 1776 to the continental army before the battle of Long Island:

The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die”

One must accept here that today’s liberalism is the antithesis of freedom; for if we today’s brave resistance, the new resistance, accept the oppression of one set of people for the benefit of others, then we do not have freedom at all.

Dare then to pray and ask God for his help and then ask your earthly representatives for theirs.
