OUTRAGE FOR MASS KILLINGS – THE HYPOCRISY




We are all united in mourning the lives lost at the Tree of Life Synagogue.  The senseless act of a deranged individual devastated families, friends, and their community.  This evil perpetrator purposely set out to kill not just anyone, he targeted a specific group of people.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle have vehemently denounced the atrocity which is to be expected and demanded; however, we find it a bit hypocritical for those on the left.  While denouncing the killing of a specific group of people, they continue to promote the calculated annihilation of minority babies in the womb.  These are the same people that reach out to the black community for votes, claiming they have their best interests at heart.  Really? 

Thanks to mainstream media’s continued censorship of the truth, the facts of how Planned Parenthood operates are hidden.  Planned Parenthood systematically locates their clinics in minority neighborhoods and even focuses ads towards black women in what it appears to be supporting what their founder, Margaret Sanger, said, “We do not want 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.”  79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are within walking distance of minority neighborhoods. And sadly, Democrat politicians are complicit in this cover-up.

According to the CDC, as of July 2017, the black population in the U.S. stood somewhere around 40 million, which means that abortion has reduced the size of the black community by more than 30%.  More than 19 million Black babies have been aborted since the 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision legalized abortion in our country, 36.0% of all abortions in the U.S. in 2014 were performed on Black women, however, only about 13.3% of the total population is Black

These facts ring the genocide bell loud and clear, yet the Democrats show no concern whatsoever. They are so blinded by the millions of dollars being poured into their campaigns by the abortion lobby they have lost their souls.  They care more for votes than for human lives, all lives – all races.  They need to take heed to what St. Teresa of Calcutta wisely said, And if we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” 

Think before you vote.

The Confirmation Process: What America Learned


The confirmation process of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh was not only educational, but also a frightening view into the hearts and minds of people …  people who are supposed to be leaders, people who claim to be tolerant, people who claim to want equality. 

 THIS IS WHAT AMERICA LEARNED

·        All women who come forward with allegations of sexual abuse are to be believed, no matter what. 
·        All men are potential targets for allegations.  They are guilty, no matter what.
·        Anyone questioning motives or credibility of an abuse victim is heartless and misogynistic, even when there is no evidence or corroboration.  
·        The presumption of innocence no longer exists.
·        Character assassination is totally acceptable as a means to an end.
·        It’s acceptable to devastate a family and publicly celebrate it.
·        The press no longer needs to use “alleged” or “accused”.  They are the judge and jury and are to be believed, no questions asked.
·        It is acceptable for political leaders to promote violence against opposing parties.
·        Free speech only applies if it follows a particular ideology.
·        It’s acceptable to harass, intimidate and threaten violence towards those with opposing views.  
·        People can use any means necessary for the right to kill the unborn.
·        The Constitution is just a piece of paper that should be gutted and rewritten to assuage a specific ideology.
·        The Constitution no longer applies to WE THE PEOPLE.

Think about it….is this the America you want?

Can We Ever Go Back?




In this volcanic political environment, ordinarily peaceful and thoughtful people have been reduced to raging, thoughtless and heartless combatants, including myself at times.   On both sides of the fence, there are attacks through all means of social media in an attempt to persuade the opposition. I’m not pointing the finger at a specific side; however, it is obvious one is much more contemptible than the other, and that is due to the lack of objectivity in the press through misleading and in some cases purely false reporting. 

Regardless of the situation, we have been thrust into this quagmire of anger, disgust, and pure hatred.  This is NOT the United States I grew up in, and it is NOT the United States the founders meant it to be.  Unethical politicians from the local level all the way up have sold their soul to the devil.  They proclaim to love our country and want what’s best for the citizens of our great nation, but they don't.   It’s not about patriotism or dedication to constituents … It’s about power and control.  It’s about manipulating the press through financial and/or other means to mislead the public by reporting non-factual, dramatic stories inciting outrage for those who consider whatever is published or broadcast the truth.  The fact a nominee to the Supreme Court being called a rapist and sexual predator on certain news channels and newspapers without the term “alleged” or "accused" says it all. 

CAN WE EVER GO BACK ... 

To common decency and consideration towards our friends and neighbors regardless of political leanings?

To expecting ethical behavior in our elected officials and demanding they be held accountable for their actions, regardless of party?  

To having fair and balanced reporting?

To celebrities using their status as a means to not promote one group of people and demean another, but to promote unity?

To having equal justice under the law?

To having citizens accept the results of elections and behaving in a manner that would reflect maturity and respectability?

To having the citizens and the security of this great country put first and foremost in the eyes of all elected officials?

To believing ALL lives matter including those in the womb?

Moreover and most importantly ….

To having a country where morals, faith, and integrity are not ridiculed but celebrated?

An Open Letter to Dianne Feinstein




Dear Senator Feinstein,

I want to address your recent actions affecting the confirmation process of Judge Kavanaugh.

Dr. Ford said she could not recall the specifics of her attack, which should have caused alarm.  I am a real victim of sexual abuse, having experienced a gang rape in the summer of 1975.  Something that traumatic stays with you for the rest of your life and you remember details.  You don’t just remember the names… you remember the place,  the circumstances as well as the surroundings.  Nothing is fuzzy.   Even though I was under the influence of alcohol at the time, I can still see the faces of my attackers, I remember the house, the street it was on, the color of carpet in the house and the feeling of the coldness of the red formica dining room table where I was held down and violated.  

Yes, it is important to take sexual misconduct seriously, but it is your responsibility to use common sense and check the story for validity before destroying someone’s reputation.  Your “last ditch effort” to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation proves you have no desire to search for the truth as long as it meets with your political goal of obstructing the current administration no matter who it hurts.

You are a disgrace to California, the Senate and the country.  I pray that sometime you will look into that dark soul of yours and find the last part of light that exposes the damage you have caused.  I pray you accept responsibility for your reprehensible actions and ask for forgiveness….from real victims, your constituents, the country, Judge Kavanaugh and most importantly God. 

I will continue to pray you see the light.

To NFL Players Taking a Knee: What's Worse - Oppression or Genocide?

Most people know I am (or used to be) a football fanatic and fantasy football addict.  While living in Seattle,  I attended many Seahawks games in the Kingdome thanks to my parents owning season tickets.  Even after moving to Southern California I flew up there for a few games.  Thursday nights, Sundays and Monday nights I was glued in front of the television …  fantasy sheets spread in front of me and pizza ordered – but thanks to grandstanding and ungrateful players, those days are gone, and my Seahawks jersey hangs in the closet, gathering dust (and I am seriously considering burning it). 

Now, don’t get in a huff.  I am a strong proponent of free speech and have done my fair share of demonstrations … however, during the National Anthem on the field is not the time or place.  Fans turn on the television or enter the stadium gates to watch FOOTBALL.  Those in the stadium could care less about politics during the course of the game…it’s a time to escape the craziness of this politically fueled world.   None of us should have to bear witness to players kneeling or raising their clenched fists during the National Anthem .. disrespecting our country and those who serve. 

I find it interesting players are demonstrating against oppression as they collect million dollar paychecks and live in mansions.  I find it interesting the only time they speak out is during football season.  Where are they off the field?  Yes, there are some that walk the walk.  Players like Ben Watson and Philip Rivers are out there calling attention to the impoverished or marginalized not only off-season but also during the season as well and guess what?  They STAND for the National Anthem.

Taking a knee during a football game does nothing but create division.  It demonstrates nothing but ingratitude towards the country that didn’t oppress them but gave them the opportunity to rake in millions.  Taking a knee on the field doesn’t stop oppression, feed the poor or clean up the inner cities …  standing up and DOING something does.    

For those players taking a knee or raising a clench fist as a statement against racial oppression....you are are missing the mark.   If you were out there in the oppressed areas, you would notice abortion clinics are strategically located there.  If you were cognizant of what is happening in the “real world” you would know black children are aborted at more than three times the rate of white children.   This is worse than oppression, fellas … it’s GENOCIDE and taking a knee won’t help that either … but standing up and speaking out in front of abortion clinics will.

Think about it.

LITTLE VOICE/BIG MESSAGE





Based on personal experience as well as my association with men and women who have experienced abortion, we do everything in our power to suppress the guilt, shame, and remorse.  And in today’s world, it’s no wonder. 

All we hear in this liberal-sponsored culture of death is that we shouldn’t feel guilty for aborting our child…it’s no big deal.  It’s not a baby it’s tissue it’s not real.  We should celebrate our independence from parenthood (and responsibility) and feel empowered.  From Hollyweird celebrities, politicians and even some claiming to be devoted Catholics, pro-choice rhetoric is shoved down our throats on a continuous basis.     

The rhetoric contradicts how we feel and stifles that little voice inside that tells us we need help. We don’t dare open up fearing the consequences.  Liberal ideologists heartlessly browbeat anyone who threatens to destroy their distorted message and the results of staying silent are disastrous:  depression, suicidal thoughts and self-destructive behavior such as substance abuse and other addictions such as sex, gambling, and food.

I visualize silence as volcanic magma.  As time passes, weaknesses in the earth’s crust can no longer hold back the magma, and a catastrophic eruption occurs. As one tool stops working, the world crumbles and ushers in more hopelessness, fear, and depression resulting in the use of another, which starts the vicious cycle all over again.  

Take it from one who knows...listen to that little voice, not the rhetoric.  That little voice is God guiding you towards healing and towards His love and forgiveness.

ENOUGH ALREADY!


Before I begin my rant,please know I am not in politics.  I am a former bra-burning - prochoice feminist and Democrat but through age and maturity, faced the truth and saw what was happening to our country. I am a (gasp!) God-fearing, Catholic, Conservative Republican.... and contrary to what the left thinks ... NOT a bigot, homophobe, xenophobe or any other "phobe," (except for heights and small spaces).  My circle of friends include all races, faiths, nationalities and sexual preference.  In fact my family is a melting pot all of its own. I am just me ...  a down-to-earth citizen of the United States who is saying," I have had about enough",  and today while fighting a migraine was not the time to get me started.
No President has been more maligned and disrespected, and it has to stop. Never in history have so many so-called adults acted so heinously after an election. Never in history have we seen people in positions of power call for disruption within communities and personal public attacks on those in the current administration (and not been held accountable). President Trump is not perfect, no one is, but at least he’s doing his job (or trying to) and the evidence is out there for all to see …but then the blinders have to be removed first. He has done more for this country in his short time in office than Obama even thought of doing in his eight years. Our economy is growing, jobs have been created, and more minorities are employed now than in decades. The threat in North Korea has lessened, and he is trying to develop a workable relationship with Russia to stave off any issues there. He tried to come up with some solutions on Dreamers, but no one wanted to act. Democrats don’t care about the illegal immigrants but use them as pawns for votes. Not only that … he is following the law of the land just like Obama, Bush and Clinton did as it pertained to illegal immigration, yet he is being maligned for it. He is trying to select a Supreme Court justice that would do what they are supposed to do……uphold and interpret the law, not make it – contrary to what the left wants a Justice to do. He wants to protect the rights of citizens (most importantly LIFE, religious freedom and bearing arms). He takes pride in our country and would NEVER apologize for the United States (like Obama did). He stands equal to all other leaders in the world and does not show weakness. He would never consider providing financial support to groups with ties to terrorism. He is trying to get a healthcare plan that benefits ALL, without the lies. What happened to choose your own doctor, lower premiums, etc., that Obama promised? Our President supports law enforcement and ICE as they are the ones protecting the citizens of the United States. He has strengthened the military and has taken steps to improve the benefits and services provided to our veterans.
I sometimes cringe at some of his tweets and believe it or not, there are some things he says I don’t agree with … but I would rather have that than have someone telling him what to say and when to say it. Yes, he speaks his mind and sometimes it’s brash, but snowflake language didn’t work for eight or more years. Yes, he had affairs (probably not as many as accused) and made some vile comments, but that was before he was in office and some well before he even considered running… unlike others…(ahem).  Back then they said Clinton's actions had nothing to do with how he ran the country...so why is today any different?  I didn't condone it then and I don't now...but has it affected the economy?  National Security?  Not then and not now.  Folks, let's remember...those who live in glass houses …..And let’s not forget Hillary’s actions while Secretary of State (her contacts with Russia, the Benghazi tragedy) or when she was running ( deleting evidence - e-mails, cell phones, erasing her illegal server). If anyone needs to be scrutinized, it should be her. Even if she’s not in office (thank God), she should be held accountable, just like Comey and the rest who lied to investigators. And if there were any instances of Russian collusion by President Trump, with all the leaks in the government, it would suffice to say it would have been out by now.
What would happen if for one day everyone, including media, pointed out the positives in this administration without any “buts”? What would happen if for one day media would only print or broadcast news that was verified through actual reliable sources? In fact, what would happen if for one day all media would be objective rather than biased? Would the world come to an end? Maybe it would give those so obsessed with the destruction of this administration food for thought.
