Comments on Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King was a preacher. A preacher, remember that. He preached love not hate, he said he longed for the day when people were not judged by the color of their skin. Would he be listened to if he were on the scene today? Think about it. He thought that day would come. We are now more divided than we were 20 years ago. Come on people, when you honor the man, honor his ideals. He was a preacher, he preached love not hate. Remember him for that. I posted this on  my Facebook page this morning after listening to C-span. One man who called in was so full of hate he stated that Iran is more free than America.  I hope that poor, deluded man never goes to Iran, he would be so disappointed.

I think if you are not of a certain age you do not remember what MLK really stood for.  Can you imagine how he would grieve to know that hundreds of thousands of babies have been aborted?  How he would grieve for the young lives. not only the black ones, thrown away on drugs and on gang wars and killings. His heart would be broken.  And after writing this I read this online, my thoughts exactly.

I had no idea it has been so long since I posted a blog.  I’ve been extremely busy with life but I have kept up with my emailed links and comments to my email list on most days.  I’ve had many ideas for posts but they never make it to the computer. I am going to try to do better and get those thoughts posted to share with any readers I might have left. In the meantime here are more links and comments for today.

How the pardon of Marc Rich made millions for the Clintons.

When I read articles like this, I think back to how we forecast, or listened to others who forecast, the furture when I was a senior in high school in 1954.  We had no idea.  This article also reminds me of the people who over 100 years ago said there was nothing left to be discovered.  How wrong they were.

Where is the media who condemned Trump for his call to bam Muslims until this is “all sorted out,” when the UK is voting on banning Trump for his free speech comment?  Hypocrites, all of them.

I didn’t watch the Democrat’s debate, but this story says they handed the Republican’s a good campaign ad.  If they did will the Republicans use it.  There is so much out there they can use.

The French President has declared an economic emergency.

Even before we paid  a known ransom for kidnapped Americans, this happened.

The Prime Minister of Great Britain says if you don’t learn English you may be deported.  He is on to something.

Glen Reynolds who is a law professor and the originator and main blogger on Instapundit,  has a column in USA today on a Constitutional convention.

Comments and a few links

I heard some of the Democratic debate last night.  I heard Hillary Clinton say ISIS was making videos of Trump and using them for recruitment.  At the time I thought, “is this classified information?  Does she have an informant sending her classified information?”  This morning I watched as Chuck Todd was questioning Trump on this, apparently that had not occurred to him but he did say this, No fact checkers have been able to verify this.  But what do you think if they are using your words?”  He said that as if they were using Trumps words. My question is, “shouldn’t he have left that question till it was fact checked”  He gave Trump the opening to go into Hillarity’s other lies.  (I borrowed that name from Molly Ann Wymer and I may be using it from now on.)  I wasn’t watching, just listening, so I didn’t see the empty stage moment.

Here is Washington Post’s fact checker on the Democratic Debate.  I cannot but think with the same type things in the Republican debate we would be seeing multiple Pinnochio’s.

On the Paris Terrorism event and Refugee Resettlement in the USA

 

Looks for links below.

Facebook and the internet is alive with pro and cons on the resettlement of refugees in the United States.  My tribe is a large one and one of the nephews, a Bernie Sanders supporter, is appalled at the mean, stingy Republicans and conservatives who think there might be a bad one among all the poor and suffering. So about that my daughter wrote this and I am very proud of her.

Her essay:

My thoughts on our country and the refugees…and yes, I’ve been mulling it over, what is the right thing to do? I don’t wish them ill, I just wish to keep our loved ones and our country safe.

Of all the jobs we as parents have, our most important ones are to teach them to love the Lord, and keep them safe. All the rest is gravy. Luckily we live in a country where that is relatively easy. We are blessed in that. So much of that is an accident of birth, or the will of God. That’s for another conversation.
Keep. Them. Safe.

Now, with the agony of this world, which is always with us, and always will be, there are so many people who are oppressed, starving, dying, my heart aches for them. So now we throw in the horrors of what ISIS is doing… I have no desire NOT to help those in need. These refugees, this poor wretched people. There but for the grace of God… So I do what little I can.

But I also realize that there are some within the ranks of these refugees that wish us dead. So much so that they are willing to die to accomplish this. So how do we protect our children? And all the others that we care about? Our parents? Our siblings? All the good people who live in this country? Do we allow all of the refugees in with no screening or vetting? Does God really want us to open our figurative arms to all in a case such as this? Or does God expect us to use our God given intelligence and make choices? Choices that define us and who we are? We do it every day. We all struggle with what we want, and what we think is right, and what God would have us do. Isn’t that what government is really supposed to be? Our way of keeping people we love safe? Of civil morals?

God doesn’t promise us safety, he promises us everlasting life. It’s my responsibility to keep those I love safe, as much as it is in my power to do so. And when our federal government refuses to see that there is a danger, isn’t that what state government is supposed to do?

I think that using those FEMA camps everyone is so worried about, for temporary housing, which gives our government time to do whatever checking and vetting is possible, is a responsible, humane, smart thing to do.

New York State’s Biggest Obamacare provider has gone broke.

The Clinton’s and their money, frauds all the way. John Hawkins on Hillary’s “Accomplishments.”

Justice Scalia tell the truth of the constitution,   it doesn’t say what the students thought about it.

We’ve got to give the man (Obama) credit, he seems to be right on at least one thing.

From an immigrants perspective: It is important to explain this, because the US is so large and has been in peace and prosperity so long that the arguments that broke up all over facebook were like watching two people discuss whether the greatest danger to the Titanic was bad soup or a measles epidemic, even while the iceberg tore the ship apart.

A Syria refugee has already gone missing, not tracked in Louisiana. Updated: they found him, he is moving to DC. Oh, right.  McConnell seems to have wised up a little.

Veteran’s Day a repost from Nov. 11, 2012

Today is Veteran’s Day and it actually happens on the 11th!  The history of it really dictates it to be on the 11th but there have been so many wars since World War I it seems almost impossible to keep it on that one day.

I wasn’t born when that war happened or ended but I do remember the huge celebration when World War II was finally over.  It seems we don’t know how to properly finish a war anymore.  We let them drag into political infighting while the actual military are still taking the hits on their bodies, minds and souls.  

We have an all volunteer army now, we did not when so many died in WWI and WWII, we had the draft, but that didn’t matter to many of the fallen heroes.  After the bombing of Pearl Harbor many of our best and brightest could not wait to be drafted, they enlisted by the thousands. Whether they enlisted or were drafted, the men of those wars were heroes.

Today we say Thank You to all who served, whatever war, whatever the reason.  We owe them a great debt and someday I hope everyone realizes that.

Dump the Debt Ceiling – he has a valid point, and… wait for it….. at this point what difference does it make?

I may be forgetting this on purpose, I think I learn it anew every year, today is Hillary’s birthday, and one I share with a few other people I DON”T forget.  Hillary is the Fat Cats’ Favorite Candidate but she sure isn’t mine.

When it  is written by William Daley, you can be pretty sure it is a puff piece. I say it didn’t all start with Palin, there they go again blaming it on Palin.  What about a party that puts McCain up as a presidential candidate?  It was already broken.

On the Pork ban in federal prisons and why it was so quickly rescinded. We all know it was put in place for the Muslim prison population, don’t try to scam us.

the tea party no longer needs to fight the Republican Party from the outside: It can fight it from within. Do you think that is true?  I think we need to fight even harder.

I missed sending this out yesterday.  I had read the Hof’s mea culpa but not the Richard Fernandez post on it.

In my opinion it isn’t what Bernie Sanders doesn’t understand, it is what all his followers do not understand.  Meet the Democratic Socialist Party.

The Paranoid Supremacist roots of the Stabbing Intifada

As a person who taught illiterate adult students, and also their tutors to who taught them, I can testify to what the lack of phonics has done to many, many people.  Many teachers have been brainwashed into not seeing the purpose of phonics, one in this article learned it.

Trump wins again- CNBC have caved to the demands of Trump and Carson.

The United States has confirmed that Iran tested a medium-range missile capable of delivering a nuclear weapon, in “clear violation” of a United Nations Security Council ban on ballistic missile tests, a senior US official said on Friday.  And we are going to do WHAT about it?

CBS is refusing to air ads for the film about Dan Rather and Martha Mapes lies, the film is named Truth.

John Kerry is trying to explain why he left Americans in Iraq prisons trying to explain the unexplainable.

I found this through a discussion with some friends on Facebook, Barbarians at the Gate’s of Realville and  Liberalism as Cultural Atavism: Vogelin’s Theory of Gnostic Modernity and Girard’s Theory of Sacrifice.  It is deep and interesting.

Hmmm….  let’s think about this.  Ending the War on Drugs  Would Not End Mass Incarceration.

Did you know Iran rewrote their copy of the “Iran Deal?”  Breitbart does.

Dinesh D’Sousa video on the emails,  I think they will be sending him to more re-education as soon as he finishes the current “re-education.”  Do NOT forget what they are trying to do to him.

How many more of these abortion doctors are out there?  Fourteen containers of baby parts in his car?

Another Climate Change Alarmist exposes the real reasons behind the scam.  “So here’s the big question,” says Klein. “What if global warming isn’t only a crisis? What if it’s the best chance we’re ever going to get to build a better world?”  Do you know what the definition of “a better world” is?  If you still don’t believe it is a scam, and you think it is something we can change, read all the links in that article.

More about Climate Change, Founder of IPCC authors “Carbon Dioxide: the Good News.” Read the article and the links.  Also, I guess I should not go to the UK as some want to arrest deniers.

Obama is also sending troops to Cameroon to combat Boko Haram  He won’t utter the words but perhaps he has recognized some Islamists are terrorists.

A stop Hillary video was released for the debate Tuesday night.

How I’m feeling as I look at all the news, and then listen to the Democrats. I’m bailing as fast as I can. Found on Facebook, I looked for the original post and found many who showed it but no original link.

Fact Checking the Democratic Candidate lines from the debate.

There is something Rotten in Denmark, but maybe they will overcome it.  They are backtracking on what Bernie admires about them.

Is it all propaganda or do we need some of this advertising?

DHS manipulated hiring rules to favor politically connected candidates, judge finds, but clears top official of wrong doing.  Okay, not a real shocker here, of course the top person was a political appointee who knew nothing about the job she should have been doing.

Is this really the lost city of Sodom.  Probably so, but this is not the first I have seen of this site.  And this is why.  I have a lot of interest in archaeology.

What the Tea Party has achieved.

Apple just lost a huge suit about a patent, the University of Wisconsin stands to make a lot of money.

A Top Democratic Scientists is telling the truth, Obama is on the wrong side of climate change.
