8 Years

8 Years ago today  I started this blog. It was in response to ObamaCare and the radicalization of our Health Care and the radicalization of our Country by a hardcare leftist ideologue, Barack Hussein Obama, whom the Leftist Media wanted.

Now all these years later…It’s much worse. So bad, that a duly elected Man of The People who won because the People wanted him as President is hated by Republican and Democrat alike. Hated by The Media that IS Orwell’s Ministry of Truth.

And the Hate?  Out of Control.

History, in danger like it has never been.

Freedom is Slavery. War Is peace. Ignorance is Strength.

Diversity is Exclusion. Fear is Hope.

Segregation is Inclusive.

“Colorblind” is racist.

Math education is “unjust and grounded in a legacy of institutional discrimination,” according to the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics and TODOS.

Everything eventually is “racist” “sexist” or “bigotry” if you disagree with The Left even .000000000000001%.  You evil people you!

Free Speech is Censorship.

bellyfeel – a blind, enthusiastic acceptance of an idea
blackwhite – to believe that black is white, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary
crimestop – to rid oneself of unwanted thoughts, i.e., thoughts that interfere with the ideology of the Party. This way, a person avoids committing thoughtcrime
crimethink, thoughtcrime – thoughts that are unorthodox or outside the official Party platform
.

Violence is good and proper, as long as it’s from the Left. And if you object, we’ll start investigation against you. We’ll shout you down.

And the screaming minority is King.

The words of Martin Luther King are”racist”.

Statues are racist. Cars are racist. Everything is racist if you want 5 seconds.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.”
–from NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR by George Orwell

That’s 2017, for ya. An orwellian dystopia of mental and physical manipulation.

Malcolm X, as a member of the Nation of Islam, preached anti-Semitism and called the white man “devil.” After the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X dismissed the murder as a case of “the chickens coming home to roost.”

Obama’s pastor for 20 years said the same thing. 🙂

In Spike Lee’s biographical drama, “Malcolm X,” a white teenage girl approaches the angry activist and says, “Excuse me, Mr. X. Hi. I’ve read some of your speeches, and I honestly believe that a lot of what you have to say is true. And I’m a good person, in spite of what my ancestors did, and I just — I wanted to ask you, what can a white person like myself who isn’t prejudiced, what can I do to help you … further your cause?” He stares sternly, and replies, “Nothing.” She leaves in tears.

But Malcolm X changed. He visited Mecca, where he saw people of all colors worshipping together. It changed the way he thought. He repudiated his anger toward whites after discovering that people were more similar than they were different. He renounced the racist ideology of the Nation of Islam, and in doing so knowingly signed his own death warrant. He was assassinated by members of the Nation of Islam.

Alabama Gov. George Wallace, in 1963, proclaimed, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” at his inauguration, and later stood in a doorway at the University of Alabama to bar blacks from entering. Nine years later, Wallace took a would-be assassin’s bullet, leaving him paralyzed. Older, wiser and chastened by the attempt on his life, Wallace changed. Wallace, one day and without invitation, went to a black church where 300 black clergymen were holding a conference. He asked to speak. Wallace asked for forgiveness. He said to the church leaders, “I never had hate in my heart for any person. But I regret my support of segregation and the pain it caused the black people of our state and nation. … I’ve learned what pain is, and I’m sorry if I’ve caused anybody else pain. Segregation was wrong — and I am sorry.”

The voters in Alabama returned the former governor to office, but this time, he received black support and made several black appointments. The damage Wallace did through his actions and rhetoric was profound, and despite the assassination attempt, he lived long enough to undo some of it.

Even a Confederate general can change.

Confederate Gen. William Mahone, one of General Robert E. Lee’s most able commanders, owned slaves before the Civil War. But after the war, he led an interracial political movement. He organized and became the leader of the Readjuster Party, the most successful interracial political alliance in the post-emancipation South. In 1881, Mahone was elected to the U.S. Senate, at the time split 37-37 between Republicans and Democrats. But Mahone aligned with the Republicans, the party founded two decades earlier by Northerners trying to stop the expansion of slavery.

From 1879 through 1883, Mahone’s Readjuster Party dominated Virginia, with a governor in the statehouse, two Readjusters in the U.S. Senate and Readjusters representing six of the state’s 10 congressional districts. Under Mahone’s leadership, his coalition also controlled the state legislature, the courts and many of the state’s coveted federal offices.

The Readjusters established what became Virginia State University, the first state-supported college to train black teachers. Democrats described the hated Readjusters and Republicans as advocates of “black domination.”

 

What about Lt. Gen. James Longstreet? One of Lee’s favorite generals, Longstreet not only became a Republican after the war and served in Republican administrations but also fought against the racist White League in New Orleans.

After the Civil War, Longstreet moved to New Orleans, where he urged Southerners to support the Republican Party and endorsed their candidate, Ulysses S. Grant, for president in 1968. He commanded blacks in the New Orleans Metropolitan Police Force against the anti-Reconstruction White League (a paramilitary arm of the Democratic Party) at the Battle of Liberty Place in 1874. He was shot and held captive for several days. He accepted political appointments from Republicans, and even dared criticize Gen. Lee. For this “betrayal,” white Southerners pronounced Longstreet a “scalawag” and “leper of the community.”

Where does this viewing of history through the prism of modern-day feelings end? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once gave advice to a gay young man that today would be heresy. King suggested he battle his feelings, strongly implying that the young man needed therapy and sexual re-orientation. Today, that kind of advice gets one branded a Neanderthal. President John F. Kennedy, frustrated with a high-profile Democrat who hadn’t supported his election, threatened to banish him by giving him an obscure ambassadorship to one of the, as Kennedy put it, “boogie republics” in Africa. Tell that to Black Lives Matter.

 

History is complicated. And history requires perspective and understanding, something sadly lacking in those who seek to erase history by imposing today’s standards of right and wrong.

They say those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. We are doomed because The Left wants to erase it altogether so you can’t even remember that you repeated it.

Liberals: Whiny snowflakes. Sensitive moral relativists. Poor economists.

And one of the latest: manipulative linguists.

That’s right. Liberals have injected morality into the political sphere.

Thus, those who disagree with them are not only “wrong” but racist, sexist, fill-in-the-blank-ist.

They don’t just disagree with liberals–they are horrible people as well.

As Lifezette.com explains, “illegal immigrants became ‘undocumented immigrants’ and then in some circles–‘undocumented Americans.’ Use of such terms as ‘illegal immigrants’ or ‘illegal aliens’–the legal moniker–became tarred as racist, with those who utter those words shunned.”

And they haven’t stopped there. The Left has misinterpreted, spun, and altogether changed the meaning of words in our current political discourse.

Here are five:

1.) Alt-Right. The problem with this descriptor is that no one can seem to agree what it means. Some white supremacists and neo-Nazis have embraced the term as an effort to rebrand themselves. Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen Bannon once said he wanted the news website to be the “platform of the Alt-Right.”

The association of a label used by racists allowed Bannon’s critics to tag him with the same slur. But Bannon never defined the term the way racial separatists such as Richard Spencer apply it. He meant it as an alternative strain of conservatism that emphasizes nationalism and populism over libertarianism on such matters as trade and immigration.

If there were ever any doubt where Bannon stands, his interview with the left-wing American Prospect shortly before leaving his post as White House chief strategist should have cleared it up. Bannon called the white nationalists who marched in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month “clowns.”…

2.) Dog Whistles. This refers to seemingly neutral words that actually are super-secret coded messages to racists and other contemptible people.

The only people who seem to be able to decode the messages, though, are racists, liberal pundits, and left-wing activists.

“Law and order?” Code for taking away the rights of blacks, say those on the Left. “Cosmopolitan,” the word White House adviser Stephen Miller used to highlight CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s elitism during a briefing-room debate over immigration policy? It’s an anti-Semitic dog whistle that had its origins with Nazis in Germany. (Never mind that Miller himself is Jewish).

Former FBI agent Michael German this month even told CNN anchor Erin Burnett that “Western culture” is a dog whistle.

3.) Divisive. This pejorative is nearly always applied to Republicans, especially President Donald Trump.

What progressives really mean when they apply it to politicians is, “advocates policies I don’t like.” If a politician calls for open borders and less aggressive enforcement of immigration laws, he is a “unifier” or is “trying to bring us together.”

But such positions are controversial and opposed by at least half the country. It makes no more sense to call these positions unifying than it does apply the “divisive” label to the opposite position — that immigration laws should be enforced to the fullest extent of the law…

4.) Microaggression. This sounded liked a joke when it came into popular usage a few years ago. But it is anything but funny. Originally attributed to psychiatrist and Harvard University professor Chester Pierce in 1970 to describe insults against African-Americans, the term has been expanded in recent years to apply to virtually every aggrieved social group….

5.) Courage. Political courage is an admirable trait. A willingness by a politician to risk his career by doing what is right was the basis of President John F. Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning “Profiles in Courage.”

Progressives, however, often use “courage” as a synonym for “opposing Trump” or Republicans, generally. This particularly is true when the politician opposing Trump is a Republican.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) bathed in left-wing accolades in July after he cast the deciding vote against the “skinny” repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

“It certainly was a McCain moment,” gushed “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski after the vote. “Mark Halperin, talk about that moment and what it meant, what it means for the future.”

Halperin, an MSNBC political analyst, answered: “Well, he’s not afraid of the president, and he’s not afraid of doing what he thinks is right.”

In summary:

The Alt-Right: Neo-Nazis! …or anything the Left deems terrible at the moment.

Dog Whistles: Liberals calling out policies they don’t like and changing the name to make them sound like micro (and macro!) aggressions against minorities.

Courage: Any Republican who opposes Donald Trump (even a prisoner of war!).

Can you think of any more? Lets get this list going!  (Regan Pifer)

Water

Water is patient. Water is Persistent. Just look what it did to the Colorado River…

The Left is Orwellian Water.

They are trying to wear us down.

Although they don’t understand anything about those with whom they are dealing.

Regular folks who love God, their family and their country aren’t the fascists or racists the left makes them out to be, with the daily barrage of propaganda designed to take good people down.

Normal folks don’t have time to entertain the darkness the left promotes. They are too busy working or going to church or tending gardens or splitting wood at night to keep their families warm. Then they go to bed and get up the next day and do it all again.

There is no time for the nonsense littering the internet and television intended to cast guilt over their values and votes. The more insane the left and their propaganda becomes, the more confident they are about the choices they will make in 2018 and 2020.

They have zero interest in protests across the country about which the media incessantly reports. They have no patience for the violence and chaos and destruction. They interpret it as something city folks do when they have too much time on their hands and too much money they didn’t earn in their pockets.

They are intuitive, but too busy to be distracted.

They are fully aware of heavily funded temper tantrum groups ingratiated by the Democrat Party such as the former Occupy Movement. A movement whose members expressed their adulation for spreading the wealth around by spreading their own feces around public places during Barack Obama’s first term. Normal people respect and appreciate cops, so they were repulsed when an occupier disrespectfully did the “big nasty” on a cop car while others poured human waste down a flight of stairs and at a bank ATM vestibule in New York. Obama and Congressional Democrats cheered them on.

And whose mental state are we currently questioning?

Those who learned stamina from the school of hard work were not impressed when reports emerged the Occupy Movement fizzled into obscurity after temperatures dropped and smarmy snowflakes retreated to their taxpayer subsidized safe spaces upon realizing they could tolerate cold about as much as they do opposing opinions.

Now, according to Politico, they are back.

Those who do the right thing every day even when they don’t feel like it, don’t have time to care this group resurrected from dormancy. But they do hope protesters pack diapers or pooper-scoopers this time around because poop disposal fairies do not exist. They resent when their taxes are used to clean up these messes.

Those who work for a living aren’t worried this group, “Refuse Fascism,” has a mission to oust President Trump and threatens to march and demonstrate and occupy city centers and parks until “Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have fallen,” as Politico reports.

 

We all should be concerned, though, that one of this group’s lead organizers is “a Maoist activist,” as Politico reports. The left is full of history-challenged non-thinkers who have no clue that Mao Zedong was a mass murdering communist dictator whose policies killed tens of millions of people by starving, working and beating them to death.

While millions less people on the planet might excite someone like Gloria Steinem who recently said, “forcing women to have children” is the “fundamental cause of climate change,” those who value life find it concerning Democrats have not disavowed this Maoist activist group organizer.

This should also serve as a reminder to the miniscule fraction of rightwing never-Trumpers that the enemy of your enemy is not always your friend.

With that said, and this column complete, I need to get to work. Sorry Gloria, it’s been snowing in our mountains here since early August, so I must sign off to go outside to split more wood. (Susan Stamper Brown)

 
 
 

The Bully Pulpit

If you thought you couldn’t be any more disgusted by Rocklin Academy, the California school who introduced small children to transgenderism without any advanced notice for parents, we’ve got bad news for you.

Todd Starnes at Fox News reports that one first-grader got sent to the principal’s office for “misgendering” a fellow student.

The “offender” is a poor little girl who did nothing more than see a boy she knew on the playground and call out to him…without knowing that over the summer break, the boy had changed his name because he “decided” (or more likely, his deranged leftist parents decided) he was a girl.

Starnes got more details on the situation from Karen England of the California pro-family group Capitol Resource Institute:

England said the first grader was investigated by the principal to determine whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name. After about an hour it was determined the little girl made an honest mistake and she was not punished or reprimanded.

But she was terribly traumatized by the incident, England said.

“The daughter came home from school upset and crying – saying, ‘Mommy, I got in trouble at school today,’” England told me […]

Capitol Resource Institute provided me with a letter the mother wrote – expressing her extreme concern over how the situation was handled.

“I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of [the transgender child], but my children have rights as well,” the parent wrote. “It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.”

If this doesn’t convince everyone that transgender mania has nothing to do with emotional health or security, nothing will.

It’s hard to fathom a mind so incompetent it would need an hour to determine that a normal kid’s obviously benign, perfectly rational greeting wasn’t a microaggression, so heartless that it would anguish that kid over nothing, or so deranged that it would think browbeating children for imaginary thoughtcrimes somehow serves the cause of anti-bullying.

Yet the average liberal mind is afflicted with all three maladies. And proudly so.

Reasoning with abusive monsters like this is a fool’s errand. A lawsuit would sting them, but it would only be a matter of time until their next atrocity. The only solution in cases like this is for parents to pull their kids out, donors to stop donating, and principled politicians to cut off every dime of taxpayer funding. Unfortunately, the latter two aren’t going to happen in a hellscape of irrationality like California, but parents who watch this and leave their children at Rocklin have nobody to blame but themselves.

Consider This…

From a Friend on Facebook.

The (il)logical path to perdition…ask where you find yourself on it today…

1) I disagree with belief/statement/philosophy X
2) I wish belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist
3) I wish people actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist
3) I wish PEOPLE THINKING belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist
4) People actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X SHOULDN’T exist
5) I believe it should be against the law to actively espouse belief/statement/philosophy X
6) I believe our government officials and/or law enforcement should make illegal/arrest/prevent anyone from actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X
7) I will only VOTE for officials who will make illegal/arrest/prevent anyone from actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X
8) I wish people who would vote for anyone who WON’T make illegal/arrest/prevent anyone from actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist
9) I believe all people who vote for anyone who WON’T make illegal/arrest/prevent anyone from actively espousing belief/statement/philosophy X must AGREE with belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist and therefore…all THOSE people are judged by me via 4) through 6) above
10) I will actively attempt to END the existence of anyone who holds belief/statement/philosophy X didn’t exist – apply same to 7) through 9) above.

Pick a historical (or current) group that you DON’T like who you feel falls anywhere from 3)-4) or higher… Now spend hours to days explaining why you’re beyond those numbers against some BAD people but it’s okay in THIS case… Right…

Joe Pardon

“Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.  Arpaio’s life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service.  After serving in the Army, Arpaio became a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas, NV and later served as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), formerly the Bureau of Narcotics.  After 25 years of admirable service, Arpaio went on to lead the DEA’s branch in Arizona,” the White House released Friday. “In 1992, the problems facing his community pulled Arpaio out of retirement to return to law enforcement.  He ran and won a campaign to become Sheriff of Maricopa County.  Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.” 

“Given Sherriff Arpaio’s extraordinary life of public service, including in the military, the President didn’t believe that subjecting a man to a conviction and potential prison term for enforcing federal immigration law was appropriate,” the statement continued. “The President did not make this decision lightly. He considered all the circumstances surrounding this case, including the fact that Sherriff Arpaio is 85 years old and had served in the military, the DEA and as a sheriff for five decades.”

Arpaio served as Sheriff for Arizona’s Maricopa County from 1993 to 2016 and was regularly re-elected with heavily majorities until his departure last year. He is known for his tough stance on illegal immigration and infamously made inmates wear pink underwear during his tenure. 

I have no problem with this since he was convicted of not following a Liberal Judge’s order to not enforce Federal Immigration Law. So was convicted of contempt for a Liberal Judge’s order to ignore the Law.

That’s just typical for Liberals. Sad, really..game show
