I have opened the window to write a new post probably over 100 times sense my last posting. I have thought that I felt the need to write something, but it all feels like it is blurring together for me. How many times can progressive mythology be brought down by science and common sense? I quickly lost interest or forgot about the posts that I was going to write. But this time, this time is different.
I feel compelled to sit down and write about what is happening in the country in the wake of the Oregon shooting. I want to look at some facts that are not being observed. I must talk about the thousands of thoughts running through my head.
I have long warned that we are entering a dark time in this country, I am sorry to say this is the first thing that I must change about this post. We are not entering a dark time, we are IN a dark time. Our nation need not prepare for the coming storm, it is too late for that. The painful slashing talons of the hurricane are already here. The sea level is rising, and the decisions we make now will determine our survival.
By now I am positive that anyone who might find their way to this blog has heard of the shooting in Umpqua Community College in Oregon. When I first heard of the shooting I was shocked, and my soul hurt for those who lost family members in the shooting. I knew that they would be suffering the pain of losing someone they love, but I also knew they would soon feel a pain that no parent, friend, or family member should have to suffer. They would soon feel the excruciating pain of the dagger stuck in their heart twisted as their pain is exploited to push an agenda that otherwise would be obliterated by public outrage.
After each of these tragedies the progressives fangs emerge. The smoke has not even finished pouring out of the barrel before they begin trying to exploit the deaths of countless innocent lives to push their agenda. Typically when something like this happens, I am quick to jump in, quick to start defending our rights, and expose the progressive agenda for what it really is. This time however, my rage was unleashed when I heard President Obama speak on the situation.
After a national tragedy our nation looks towards our leaders for solace and strength. The right words spoken after a tragedy can unite the nation; bring out the best in our souls. I will always remember watching President Bush standing in the rubble of the Twin Towers, holding that fireman saying, “I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.” President Bush did a lot of things wrong, but at that moment he galvanized the nation. Those words, that confidence, served as an inspiration for all of us.
With the eyes of the nation glued to their televisions, President Obama stepped to the lectern. What words of healing would he offer, what words of wisdom would he choose to sooth the nation’s suffering? None, he was not interested in healing, he came ready for war. President Obama had this to say about the shooting, “This is something we should politicize”.
Something to be politicized…. I have long said that progressives feed off these tragedies, they latch on to the morning, and feed off their suffering. I never once thought that they would ever openly admit it on national TV news.
As you can imagine, the second President Obama let these vial words of naked partisan hatred from his lips, my fingers started flying. I blew my Facebook account up. I was enraged. I was preparing to write an entry to disembowel his fanciful arguments. I was going to destroy his ignorant claims, and lay waste to any progressive who dare perpetuate the “effective gun control” myth. But I stopped.
Yes, I stopped. I have written on the subject of gun control countless times. I have scientifically proven that fallacy of the gun control argument. I can honestly say that I laughed out loud when President Obama, in front of God and the Nation said, “he notion that gun laws don’t work, is not borne out by the evidence.” The first thought that came to my mind was how most mass shootings take place in gun free zones. His evidence claim is quickly evaporating. I realized that there was no need to write about idiotic nature of President Obama’s ignorant statements.
President Obama is a lame duck President. As of the landslide election of 2014, President Obama has no legal means left to advance his agenda in a meaningful way. His Presidency is effectively over. He is now a non-factor in American Politics. He can sit and fume in the White House for the rest of his term. Let him rot.
However, that all changed when I heard the story of the Ten Commandments being taken down in the dark of night. Seeing these stone tablets removed by cowards under a vial of darkness I realized, that our nation has indeed entered dark times. The Ten Commandments were ordered removed from the Oklahoma Capitol Building after being ordered by the Oklahoma Supreme Court. The tablets were taken down under the cover of darkness to avoid protests and outrage from the public.
Why?
Why were these tablets taken down in the dead of night when no one would be there? The answer is simple, progressive politicians know that Americans hold our religious views very deeply. They know that public outrage can quickly be aimed directly at their political careers. They know that in this modern day and age, when a 25 year old guy from Ohio has the ability to reach the entire world with his viewpoints, public outrage can quickly grow. They did not want huge protests in the street. They did not want the firestorm that would accompany removing the Ten Commandments, for fear that it would unite the Christians, the Jews, basically the majority of the United States.
Christianity, religion itself is under attack in this country. Christianity is the current punching bag for the progressives. Religion is the enemy to progressives. The concept that mankind was created by God, is troubling for people who want absolute blind authority over the masses. How can they have unquestioned power to oppress…. Sorry… to protect the population from their own ignorance, if the people of this country answer to God? The answer is that they can’t, thus religion must be destroyed. This is common practices in progressive states like the USSR. The State, not God is the supreme power in the world. Your rights are not granted to you by God, they do not even exist. What you think to be your rights, are in fact nothing more than privileges granted to you by the state.
Most progressives will of course deny any such war is being waged, or that the removal of religious liberty is their ultimate goal. Often they will cover up this plot by saying things like, “Of course we do not want to ban religion. There is no war on religion, this country was founded with strong religious principals. No one could ever destroy that bond.” Typically this statement will be followed by the typical “acceptance” statement. They are right. No one in this country, except for progressives and radical lunatics, would ever accept an outright destruction of religious liberties. Instead, the progressives work as they always work, in the shadows.
Progressives have gradually been conditioning the majority of the country into giving up their religious liberties, while simultaneously dividing the nation along religious lines . Look at how viciously they attack Christians. They attack public displays of faith, no more Christmas Trees and don’t you dare say “Merry Christmas”. They take down monuments honoring those who died protecting our freedoms, because it took the shape of the cross. They claim these religious symbols are offensive to other religions, thus pitting Americans against one another. Christians are now suddenly the bullies, while Jews, Muslims, and Atheists are now victims of aggressive rhetoric such as “Merry Christmas”. They bastardize the First Amendment to mean freedom FROM religion, rather than freedom OF religion.
Christians are despicable aggressors forcing their view points down the throats of everyone around them. Never mind the fact that the ACLU is filing a lawsuit to FORCE Catholics to violate their religious views, and perform abortions in Catholic Hospitals. Never mind the fact that Christian Bakers are being forced to make wedding cakes for gay couples, even though gay marriage violates their religious beliefs. Never mind the fact that President Obama refuses to call the people burning prisoners alive in cages Islamic Terrorists.
Never mind the fact that when a man walks into Umpqua Community College in Oregon and begins to choose victims by the answer to a simple question, “Are you a Christian?” a yes response followed by a bullet, there is silence. Sorry, there isn’t silence. There is anything but silence. President Obama has the bold face audacity to step up onto a podium lean up against his lectern and tell us that the shooting is our fault for not letting him violate the United States Constitution. President Obama openly admitted that he wanted to “politicize” this issue.
Never mind the fact that the stories covering the events of that bloody day are about gun control… sorry gun safety control is a dirty word, the bravery of the man who stood up to the shooter, or the arrogance and ignorance of President Obama. My favorite story has GQ literally stating F!@K You Ben Carson, all because Dr. Carson said he would have stood up to the shooter. How many stories have you seen talking about how the gunman set out to execute Christians? The MEDIA IS SILENT!
There is a genocide waging across this planet. Christians are being wiped out by radical Islamic Terrorist throughout the Middle East. The Ten Commandments, are now considered offensive, despite the fact that they are the basis of Western Civilization. Christians can be targeted and gunned down in the Streets of the United States and all we hear about is President Obama running his mouth about wanting more gun control. We hear a man spewing ignorant filth from his mouth push his radical agenda, while the blood of innocents flows through the streets.
I am sorry, if you were hoping to have more time before this country plunged into darkness, it is too late. The darkness has arrived. Now is not the time to start preparing. Now is the time to stand. Take the hand of your neighbor, hold them close. Pray to God for Strength, and stand.

Evil thrives when good men do nothing. However, Demons Run when good men go to war. It is time to stand up, and speak out against this madness. It is time to unite against the insanity. Christians, Jews, Muslims, rational minded people, stand up. We must hang together, or we will burn separately. Why do religious affects bother atheists? If they don’t believe in God, these are just stone slabs. Stand up, and speak out. Reach out to your neighbors. Rebuild your community. Only through the strength granted to us through unity, can we weather this storm. The path laid out by progressive thugs like President Obama can only end in disaster.
I am a Christian.

God Bless you all.

There has been another shooting in this country, and this time on live TV. I am sad to say it, but once again these poor innocent people’s deaths, their families pain and suffering, are being exploited to advance the progressive ideology. Once again we see President Obama, saying that this happens too often. Gun grabbers once again are trying to generate enough uproar that people act out of fear, instead of intelligence, and willingly give up their God given rights.

I have written at length, multiple times about the illogical conclusion that more gun control equates to lower crime/murder rates. I am not going to rehash those points again… you know, I say that, but I know that some progressive Zealot is going to want to do battle defending their time proven failure of an ideology. Instead I would like to frame the argument in a different light.

Recently, to much fanfare, the Supreme Court ruled that States do not have the authority to ban gay marriage. This ruling was cheered throughout the land. President Obama lit up the White House with Rainbow colored lights to make it look like the Gay Pride flag.

So the courts have ruled that Gay Marriage is a right protected under the United States Constitution. What would happen, if Dallas decided to regulate gay marriages? Require them to register where they live? What if Nashville decided that gay couples had to pay higher taxes than non gay couples?Imagine if the Federal Government decided to pass a law restricting Gay couples rights, maybe denying them tax breaks other married couples receive? Is there any rational thought process that leads to doubt that there would be national outrage over this clear violation of their God given rights?

Of course not, and they would be right to cry out against these clear injustices.

The Supreme Court has recently ruled that Obamacare subsidies are legal, rewriting the rules of the English language to come to that conclusion. WE have heard the President, and countless Democrats demand that all challenges to Obamacare be dropped, as the Supreme Court has now clearly ruled that it is Constitutional.

So there would be national outrage if individual cities, or the Federal government choose to ignore the Supreme Court’s ruling on Gay Marriage. President Obama and many Democrats have demanded that all attacks on Obamacare be stopped, as the Supreme Court has ruled it is Constitutional. Why then does President Obama and the rest of the progressive movement choose to ignore Supreme Court rulings upholding the Second Amendment, and striking down gun control laws?

The United States Supreme Court rules continually in favor of the Second Amendment as being a protection of an individual’s right to own and bear arms. Yet for some reason, progressives like to keep trying to pass new gun bans, new restrictions, despite the fact that the court has struck them down countless times. The Heller Case clearly defends the individual right to own and bear arms, and struck down the DC gun ban. Yet, people like Diane Feinstein continue to push for new regulations restricting this right.

My question is why is it that according to progressive’s it is okay to violate the Constitution and ignore Supreme Court rulings when it comes to the Second Amendment, but not when it comes to say Obamacare? Why is a Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare the final salvo in the fight, the definitive end to any challenges to the law, but Supreme Court Rulings that uphold the Second Amendment are to be completely ignored?

In the case of Gay Marriage, no where in the Federal Constitution is the issue of marriage addressed. Not one time does the Constitution mention marriage, or give any power to regulate it to the Federal Government. The Supreme Court struck down Gay Marriage bans because they violate the 14th Amendment which states:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws

No where in this Amendment are the words Gay, Homosexual, Heterosexual, or Marriage stated. The court still ruled that 14th Amendment protects Gay Marriage because it protects equal protection of the law. That ruling struck down gay marriage bans.

The right to own and Bear Arms can be found in the Bill of Rights, in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. It reads:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

I will stress again, for all you new comers, the Second Amendment has what is called a prefatory clause, which is used as a form of justification for law. The first half of the Second Amendment “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state”, in no way limits the the right protected by the Amendment. It is simply stating one reason why the right to own and bear arms shall not be infringed. This has been upheld by the Supreme Court, and is a staple in 18th century law.

This Amendment clearly states that we have the right to own and carry guns. This has been upheld many times by the Supreme Court, most recently in the Heller Case striking down the DC gun ban.

The Obamacare case was decided base on the Supreme Courts interpretation of intent. There was no Constitutional authority cited, they completely rewrote the law. The law intended to make it so that only states that set up state run exchanges would be allowed to receive subsidies. This was intended to force Republican governors to accept Obamacare. Jonathan Grubber all but spelled that out when he was pushing for Obamacare.

So of the three which one was made on the strongest footing? Heller defending the individual right to own and bear arms? The Gay Marriage Ruling? or the Obamacare ruling?

Needless to say, progressive Hypocrisy is well highlighted here. It is funny that the decision most passionately defended by the progressive is the one made with the least amount of legal creditably.

You cannot decry limitations/restriction on Gay Marriage, and support further gun control efforts. The Supreme Court has ruled on both of these, ensuring that they are in fact individual rights protected by the Constitution.

I have tried really hard to find a polite way to breech this subject; however it defies the capabilities of this admittedly flawed man to do so. Planned Parenthood is a despicable organization founded by wicked people, and has proved itself unworthy of Federal Funding. That is the only logical conclusion one can draw when they take into account the facts surrounding the organization.
Now of course the bigots will claim that I am sexists, that I am waging a war on women. They are free to do so, and to be honest I do not care what these small minded Neanderthals think of me. The facts speak for themselves. I will lay out for you the case for defunding Planned Parenthood, using, heaven forbid, facts, and at the end allow you to make your own decision.
Before I go any further, I would like to address the preconceived notions of all the progressives out there. I am not trying to defund healthcare to women, I am not trying to outlaw abortion, I am not trying to overturn Roe V. Wade. This is not an attempt to push women back into the 60’s, and ban all birth control. I am not even trying to shut down Planned Parenthood. What I am pushing for is the reallocation of all federal funding from Planned Parenthood to other local community clinics. I will repeat I am not trying to defund woman’s healthcare, just stripping federal funding to Planned Parenthood. Any attempt to classify it as a war on women only serves as fuel to the fire, thus proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that the accuser is not interested in the healthcare of women, but rather praying on their fears. I have no time for such small minded bigots, and you can rest assured I will not be bothered with your ignorant comments.
Now for those willing to have a legitimate discussion about Planned Parenthood, a brief examination of the facts should be more than enough to make a case for defunding the organization. I will make this case on both the grounds of moral indecency as well as redundancy.
The primary argument made by Planned Parenthood supporters is that women need the services provided by the organization. Defunding Planned Parenthood would only serve to hinder women’s reproductive health. This argument is predicated on an assumption that Planned Parenthood is the only organization that offers these services. This is simply just not the case.
There are 9,000 FREE community clinics funded by the federal government that offer free healthcare services to women. There are only 700 Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide. The only difference between one of these community clinics and Planned Parenthood, is that Planned Parenthood offers abortion, and the community clinics do not. It should be blatantly obvious that Planned Parenthood is not the integral cog in the healthcare machine that Democrats continue to portray it as.
Progressives like to claim that by removing Federal Funding from Planned Parenthood, conservatives are trying to deny women access to vital healthcare services such as mammograms. Sadly that is not the case. Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms; instead they refer individuals to qualified clinics that do provide mammograms. Most likely they are referred to the clinics mentioned above.
So Planned Parenthood does not provided vital services to women, they are not a critical piece in providing medical services to women, why then should they continue to receive federal funding? Why do Democrats push so hard to keep funding it? If the debate is about women’s healthcare, shifting funding from Planned Parenthood to other more qualified organizations should not be a big deal. Why are progressives like Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren so vehemently opposed to defunding them? A quick trip over to our friends at Open Secrets.org the answer becomes obvious. In 2014 Planned Parenthood donated $404,907 to various Democrat campaigns. In 2012 they donated $560,385 dollars to various Democrat campaigns. Here is a link to the break down if you are interested, http://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/pacgot.php?cmte=C00314617&cycle=2014.
Suddenly this is looking less like it is about protecting women, and more like ensuring that Democrats have a reliable revenue stream (funded by the tax payers), and a controversial issue that they can threaten women with.
With the need for Planned Parenthood in serious doubt I would like to discuss the outrageous history of this bigoted organization. Planned Parenthood has a history that would disqualify any other organization from, not just receiving federal funding, but from existing in a civilized society.
Planned Parenthood was founded by a progressive by the name of Margret Sanger. Margret Sanger is heralded by many progressives, for her forward thinking and contribution to society. Sadly, they have white washed the history books to cover up the wickedness that dwelled within her heart.
When I say the word Eugenics, everyone instantly thinks of Adolf Hitler, rightly so. When you consider that he is responsible for quotes such as;

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

“Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems”
“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
Of course, I should point out that Adolf Hitler did not say a single one of those things, all of these quotes are from Margret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. I find it odd, that progressives, the people who supposedly want to help minorities are so intent on supporting an organization whose founder stated so boldly, “We want to exterminate the Negro population”.
The plain and simple fact is that Planned Parenthood was not founded to help women, it was, and continues to act as a eugenics project. In 2012 there were 24,758 African Americans born in New York City, that same year 31,328 African American babies were aborted. That amounts for 42.4% of the abortions in the city. (here is the article http://cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/nyc-more-black-babies-killed-abortion-born).

Pretending that Planned Parenthood is anything more than another example of institutionalized progressive racism is akin to turning a blind eye to the KKK. If Planned Parenthood stopped funding the Democrat Party tonight, we would not see the morning sun before they moved to defund fund it, and place the blame for its existence on greedy bigoted Republicans.
Here is the latest video showing the vial acts that the Planned Parenthood is currently involved in.

So please tell me, how is it that you can stand by such a bigoted organization, that clearly represents institutionalized racism, is clearly violating federal law, and offers no services (except for abortion) not offered for free by clinics in the United States. I the only reason that I can come up with is that you are an ignorant bigot.

Progressive cover up their bigotry by claiming that they are standing up for women, “yeah, she was a racists, yea she wanted to wipe out African Americans, but she wanted to help women”. That is akin to justifying the Holocaust because Hitler was trying to help the entire German Population… wait that is how he justified it.

I am so tired of progressive getting a pass on every one of their racists, sexists, or bigoted acts. These people are monsters. Republicans get blamed for shootings because of the Confederate Flag, but Democrats never have to answer for the crimes of Planned Parenthood. No they get a pass on that. Well I am not standing silent. It is time to cut off Planned Parenthood from federal funding. It is time to stop forcing good, kind hearted Americans to pay for the malicious dreams of a bigoted monster. It is time to send those funds instead to entities that will actually focus on women’s health, rather than just being an abortion mill.

Yes, I know, “oh they can’t use federal funds to fund abortions”. That is an incredibly poor argument. Imagine you want to go see a movie, you have 5 dollars. You want to get a ticket, and pop corn. A ticket is 5 dollars, thus ruling out buying pop corn. You come to me and ask to borrow money so you can go see the movie. I agree to give you five dollars, but tell you “under no circumstance are you to use this money to buy pop corn.” You go to the movie theater, you use the 5 dollars I gave you to buy a ticket, then you use your five dollars to buy your popcorn. I effectively just funded your buying pop corn. That is how federal funding is used. The despicable acts of Planned Parenthood are made possible, because they have a never ending supply of funds coming from the Federal Government.
It is time to send that money to people who will use it for the betterment of mankind. There is no justification for federal funding to go to Planned Parenthood. It is a racists organization, founded by a wicked woman, and run by soulless money hungry pigs.
End of story. Stand against them, or be counted with them.

I have long be an opponent of Sanctuary Cities, as I feel they violate the law.  They offer refuge to criminals, and thumb their noses at the rule of law. Think of it this way, a Sanctuary City is like that kid in school whose parents let them run wild, gave them whatever they wanted, and everyone thought “man your parents are cool”.  We all know how those kids ended up, sure they get to work in an office building, sadly they don’t have a desk, they clean the desk.

What I am saying here is that Sanctuary Cities are tool used by progressives. It is how they get to deal with these pesky illegal immigrants who, for some reason, think that the progressives are going to do something to help them, without actually having to address the problem.  The kid makes a bunch of noise, by him a new toy.  They can claim they are protecting them from the evil conservatives, while doing absolutely nothing to help legal immigrants, and protect American Citizens from the dangers of an open border.

If a city in Texas decided that they would become a Sanctuary City for bakers who did not want to bake cakes for gay weddings, progressives would be in an uproar.  They would demand sanctions, that the federal government stopped sending funds to that city immediately.  In that case, the baker was simply following his religious principles, something he is allowed to do by law.  In the case of these Sanctuary Cities harboring illegal aliens, these cities are providing safe haven for CRIMINALS.

I get that many illegal immigrants are here trying to provide for their families, I get that.  For some reason though progressives cannot wrap their heads around the fact that by their being in this country they have broken the law.  They are criminals because they broke into this country.  End of story.

So I will say it again, any city that refuses to enforce federal immigration law should be exempt from any form of federal funding.   Tax payers of responsible cities should not be forced to fund the criminal activities of progressive disasters like San Fransisco.

Waves roll gently onto the soft sand, lapping at the shore. Sea Galls caw in the distance, echoing over the soft gentle sound of the ocean. An image of peace, that was once so unimaginable to the world. 71 years ago, the waves crashed red, not white. The only avian sound was that of hundreds of planes bombarding the coast. Shells from mighty battleships rained down upon the cliffs, and the endless streams of machine gun fire.
Yes 71 years is a long time. The scares of this hell storm have slowly healed, erased by the relentless march of time. The grinding gears of the never ending years patiently push the battle scared memories of the past further and further from our minds. The screaming, the pain, the far too real horror of battle are slowly becoming unimaginable concepts for most of the world.
The passage of time brings us both relief, and ignorance of the lessons of history. We are relieved of the first hand painful knowledge of the past, only to have it replaced with an ignorance of what should happen if we fail to heed its lessons.
June 6th, 1944 is the day that the armies of liberty stood up against the darkness, and said “No”. A nation battered by war, stood defiantly and proclaimed “It ends here, you shall go no further.” A nation crippled by depression stood up and said, “Tyranny ends today.” The armies of freedom took on the monster that was Nazi Germany. The United States, the United Kingdom, and their allies rose up, and threw everything they had at the Armies of Socialism, and told Hitler and the Axis Powers, you are done.
The Allies held nothing back. Brave men leapt from airplanes into the black of night, leapt into plywood boats and stormed the beaches of hell. Men left the safety of armored ships, boarded tanks held afloat by an inch of canvas and some insane engineering. Hundreds of thousands stormed the beaches, thousands gave their lives, to liberate Europe from the clutches of socialism tyranny.
71 years ago, the Battleship Texas bombarded the Normandy Coast, her 14 inch cannons pounding German Positions. Today, her guns are silent. She sits forever a memorial to the bravery of the men who fought for freedom around the world. Her decks are filled not with the shouts of men fighting for survival, but of the laughter of children on vacation learning about their nation’s history. 71 years is a long time.
Sadly I believe that most Americans have no clue of the significance of June 6th 1944. I doubt many of them understand the sacrifices made by so many brave men on that fateful day 71 years ago. We are too busy worrying about the newest Iphone, or what some obscure celebrity has done. We are so worried about the trivial and ultimately pointless things, that we fail to take remembrance of the sacrifices made to protect, not just the Freedom of the United States, but of the entire world 71 years ago of the beaches of Normandy. 71 years is truly a long time.
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. History is a class that is so often treated as a punt in school. Give it to the football coach to validate his position. I know eleven year old kids who have no clue who fought in the Civil War, because “they don’t teach that until 8th grade”. What chance do we have, when history is treated as such a menial thing? Everything we are, everything we have, is because of the decisions made by those who came before us. We are allowed to debate because of the sacrifices made on the beaches of Normandy. The negligence our education system has shown to not just the study, but the understanding of history is nothing short of disgraceful. I would go so far as to say criminal.
How can we expect our children to build upon the foundation laid out by those who came before us, if we choose not to give a damn? How can we expect them not to make our mistakes, if we are too preoccupied with what team is in the NBA finals, or what the Kardashians are doing to give a damn?
We must remember history, we must learn from history. I pray we are never forced to experience another June 6th, 1944, because our leaders failed to learn the lessons of Neville Chamberlain, The man who feed the beast, rather than kill it. I pray we never forget the steep price that must be paid when good men do nothing. I pray that we never forget the lessons learned on D-Day.
Today I ask all who cherish liberty and equality, to pause and remember the brave men who gave their lives on D-Day, the day the Liberation of Europe Began.

Last week Senator Ted Cruz showed the world just why it is that he is one of the three legitimate candidates in the GOP field. When you run as a Republican there are a few things you have to understand, first and foremost is do not expect fair treatment from the media.  You could be the smartest man on the planet, they could agree with everything you say, but because you have a R in front of your name, they assume their job is to ultimately destroy you.

This is a trap that Republican candidates fall into far to often.  They assume the media is unbiased, and is just interested in getting the story out to the people.  For some reason or other, they also choose to listen to Democrats and Progressives, who tell them that they cannot defend themselves in front of the media. They cannot challenge the media, they have to accept the premise of whatever argument the media throws out, and then try to defend themselves against it.  If they don’t, if they stand up to the media, if they dare stand up for themselves, if they dare call out so called “reporters”, they will only serve to upset the “independents”… or is it the moderates this year… no the moderates were the “must win in” 2008… I digress.  Republicans fall for this trick, far to often, and thus are never able to go on the offensive. They can never talk about their agenda. They can only defend against attacks from the media.

I have to applaud Senator Ted Cruz for how he reacted the other day, when a reporter tried to snare him in this trap.  I hold that Senator Ted Cruz is probably one of the smartest men on the planet.  His mind is sharp, quick, and he never allows his mouth to out run brain. This intelligence, had led to a sense of confidence, which helps to prevent Senator Cruz from falling into this classic progressive trap.

A clear example occurred just last week in Beaumont Texas. Senator Cruz was approached by a reporter and asked this question, “Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?” This is a classic question to draw a lesser candidate into the trap. To progressives there are only two options for the Republican to take.  Option one, they take a stand against gay rights, this is the route that most progressives hope they take. They come out against gay rights, thus opening the flood gates for countless campaign ads, and donations to the Democrat Party.  They get to say things like “Candidate A is a bigot” or “Candidate A is stuck living in the dark ages”.   The other option, the candidate tries to reach out to the “moderates”, and does not really come out against gay rights, but he does not condemn them either.  Progressives still get to claim that the candidate is a bigot, and the candidate has now alienated the conservative base.  A win win.

Ted Cruz though, Ted Cruz is far to smart to drawn into that trap.  He responded by rejecting the premise of the argument being made. He did not accept that this concept that he has a hostility towards gays, and must defend himself. Instead he exposed the media for the spineless hypocrites they are.  Senator Cruz responded by saying “Let me ask a question.  Is there something about the left, and I’m gonna put the media in this category, that’s obsessed with sex?  Why is it that the only question you want to ask concerns homosexuals?  Okay, you can ask those questions over and over and again.  I recognize that you’re reading questions from MSNBC”

The reporter, would not accept that answer, so he asked again, “Do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?”

Senator Cruz replied,  “I recognize you want to ask another question about gay rights.  Well, you know, ISIS is executing homosexuals.  You want to talk about gay rights, this week was a very bad week for gay rights ’cause the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical theocratic Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children, and that murder homosexuals, that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic”

Before I go on, I have to stop and say, this is the first time that I can remember hearing an elected official call the progressives out on this issue.  It is always, “Republicans hate women”, “republicans hate gays”,  but progressives stand silent when gays and women are massacred in the streets in the middle east.  Hillary Clinton accepts money from many of these nations.   Ted Cruz is the only elected person I have heard call progressives out on this.  To expose their hypocrisy, to expose the lie of their war on individuality.  They claim conservatives hate women because we stand against abortion, but they stand silent when Islamic extremists cut a woman’s hand off, or bury her up to her neck and stone her to death.  We are told that conservatives hate homosexuals because they oppose gay marriage, but progressives like President Obama and Hillary Clinton try to negotiate with radical Islamic extremists while they murder thousands of gays in the street.   Senator Cruz highlights this hypocrisy, and I think deserves a medal for it.

Back on topic.

The reporter was still not satisfied, and against asked “do you have a personal animosity against gay Americans?”

Senator Cruz replied, “Do you have a personal animosity against Christians, sir?  Your line of questioning is highly curious.  You seem fixated on a particular subject.  Look, I’m a Christian.  Scripture commands us to love everybody.  And what I have been talking about with respect to same-sex marriage is the Constitution, which is what we should all be focused on.  The Constitution gives marriage to elective state legislatures.  It doesn’t give the power of marriage to a president or to unelected judges to tear down the decisions enacted by democratically elected state legislatures.”

An there it is, Senator Cruz drives the final nail into this line of questioning’s coffin.  He explained his religious beliefs, then, without skipping a beat, flipped the argument on its head.  He changed it from “look, look at the bigoted Christian Conservative,  he hates gays, look at him, look at how evil he is.” to an argument of “Why do you hate Christians”, but better than that he changed the premise of the argument.  He brought the conversation back to the concept of rule of law.  The Constitution does not give the power to regulate marriage to the Federal Government, it gives it to the states, and to the people.

So Senator Cruz turned the tables on this would be political assassin. This hack did not get his headline, instead most people have never even heard of this exchange.  It was swept under the rug, because it showed just how viable a threat to the progressive movement Senator Ted Cruz is.  He did not cave to progressive pressure, he did not attack them and make himself look like a monster, he stood up for his beliefs, and took the fight to them.  He did so in a calm, level headed, and elegant manner.

Ted Cruz, looking more and more like a President every day.

Here is a clip of the exchange.

Progressive scum bag, Senator Lindsay Graham, all but announced that he was going to be running for President.  He claims that he is running because he thinks he has the foreign policy experience that has been lacking these last six years.  Now I know what everyone is thinking, finally the Republican Dream Candidate has entered the race.  Yes, finally we have a candidate who can inspire the base, vanquish Hillary Clinton, save the economy, and restore our liberties.

Senator Graham must have finally lost it.  Does he really think that he has a chance at the nomination? Honestly, with such power houses like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Scott Walker running, just how does Senator Graham think his John McCain style politics is going to stand a prayer of getting within spitting distance of the podium?

Needless to say, I am happy to see that Senator Graham is running.  I welcome him to the race.  His candidacy serves to insure that the American People are going to have a real choice come 2016.  Senator Lindsay Graham’s candidacy will help to insure that the GOP has a viable candidate in 2016. Not because he is somehow going to win, but because he is going to make it easier for candidates who could actually win the White House to win the nomination.

Senator Graham probably does not even realize just how beneficial his candidacy will be for the viable candidates in the GOP.  Senator Graham’s candidacy is going to serve to help the GOP in two ways. First, his running is going to give viable candidates like Senator Paul, Senator Cruz, and Governor Walker a great opportunity to draw contrast between themselves and the establishment of the party.  Thus GOP voters are going to be able to see just who the Establishment is, and for once actually be able to have a choice between big government progressives and actual conservatives.

The second way that Lindsay Graham is actually helping Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Scott Walker is by acting as a parasite.  You see the Establishment has already chosen who the candidate will be. They want Jeb Bush to be the candidate.  For some reason they think another Bush is just what this country needs. Now, I have already explained in detail just why it is that Jeb Bush cannot win the White House, however, there is a very real possibility that he could win the primary.  I have explained why running the establishment candidate as we did in 2008, as we did in 2012, is a horrible idea.  So I must actually say that I am ecstatic to hear that Lindsay Graham is running.

The only reason that John McCain was able to lose the 2008 election was because Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee split the conservative vote in the primary.
The only reason Mitt Romney was able to lose the 2012 election was because Ron Paul and Rick Santorum split the conservative vote in the primary.

In both of those elections, more people voted for conservative candidates, however, the establishment’s moderate/progressive of choice won because the conservative vote was split. In both 2008 and 2012 multiple conservative candidates split the parties majority. Couple that with the consultant class’s war on conservatives and you have a recipe for a concession speech. I can vividly remember Charles Krauthamer saying Mitt Romney would not lose.  I also remember thinking it was odd that Bob Beckel was willing to give Republicans advice to win elections…. but honestly we have been over this before.

So why is it that I am happy to see Lindsay Graham running? No conservative, no liberty minded, sentient human being is going to vote for Lindsay Graham. He does not stand a chance of winning the nomination. He does not have the name recognition, and he does not have the conservative pedigree (often voting with Democrats like his buddy John McCain) necessary to win the nomination.  So his candidacy does not threaten to siphon votes from viable candidates like Paul, Cruz, and Walker.  Instead, Senator Graham will actually help conservatives, the conservatives he is trying to silence (he is by no means a fan of Rand Paul).  You see, 2008 there was only one progressive candidate, John McCain. In 2012 there was only one progressive candidate, Mitt Romney.  Well 2016, we have many.

Lindsay Graham is just the latest in a long line of progressive candidates who are going to siphon votes away from Presidential Long Shot  Jeb Bush.  No one who would vote for Rand Paul is going to vote for Lindsay Graham, however someone who would vote for Jeb Bush could easily be convinced to vote for Senator Graham.

So I welcome Senator Graham to the race, and thank him for his service. He actually helping the party by running. He is insuring that his antiquated political brand will soon find its rightful place in the dust bin of political failure.  Thank You Senator Graham, for helping to prevent Jeb Bush from getting the nomination.
