WINNERS LOSERS OF IOWA

26

Iowa Caucus done and in the books, big winners big losers this week.

Big winners on the GOP have to be Cruz who won but barely, Trump and Rubio. Both Trump and Rubio were not pummeled but stayed real close and that is a win.

To me this is a real win for Americans in general, both Cruz and Rubio have good plans for America both are pro life and both have good tax plans as well. I view both Cruz and Rubio as pretty good statesmen with Cruz getting the node based on his smaller government ideology over Rubio.

What about Trump well I just don’t have the faith in the Donald like others. A red herring is my first thought, a man who use to support the Clintons, was a self toting liberal from New York just does not have my trust Ross Perot comes to mind. Could Trump have changed and gone middle of the road GOP well of course anything is possible I just don’t trust him at this point he won’t get my primary vote.

Big losers in the GOP Paul, Bush and the rest. I like Paul and hope he can climb back up but I have to admit I’m glad to see Bush fair so poorly. What I would like to see is Paul, Cruz and Rubio fight it out instead of Trump. I know these are political guys in the establishment but these three men have in my opinion the best ideas for America at this point in our time.

Big winner in the DNC are both Clinton and Sanders, Sanders holding on tight and probably will win New Hampshire but after that I think Clinton will blow his doors off.

The losers in the DNC are O’Malley and the American people. Right now the big winner for Sanders is Karl Marx. The fact Americans have split the vote between a lier and a socialist that cannot understand economics is sad very sad indeed. Both Clinton and Sanders want government growth and the only way to do this is for you to give the government your money.

You cannot have free collage, free internet without somebody paying for it. Teacher do not teach for free and AT&T does not give out free data plans. Socially the DNC is morally bankrupt, theft from personal property to pay for free stuff is morally wrong. Killing innocent unborn humans is morally wrong, dismantling the traditional family is morally wrong and those are just the basics.

This is the year people, the year you decide what kind of America do you want, choose wisely because we cannot take back what we choose. In a good world view one should be able to do so but in a real world view it won’t be given back, you are stuck with what you took.

THE DEBATE

Tonight another GOP debate, I do have a dog in this fight because frankly the DNC is full of has-been old white guys or socialist on the verge of being a communists so I’m not thrilled with ever voting demo-liberal I’d rather vote for a paper towel over Bernie Sanders or Clinton.
What I read on the Emags and Twitter is tonight’s debate is over substance this will separate the adults from the children. (Can’t say men from boys since Carly is running).


What does substance mean, and what does it mean from a liberal network like CNBC. No more questions like “would you really let a woman die and not let her have an abortion” Megan Kelly should have been fired for that moronic question to Scott Walker.
I don’t have faith in CNBC, they do good when they show formula 1 Grand Prix’s for NBC Sports occasionally but besides that who watches CNBC well I guess you will be if you watch the debate.

Will Trump bounce back will Carson surge forward will Rubio scream I don’t know.
One thing I guess is this debate might thin the herd a bit, maybe Bush stumbles maybe Christie has mob ties.

One thing I do hope is that they the candidates put their energy in defeating the socialist democrats yes the democrat socialist that is what Sanders identifies himself and what he and his party wants for this country.

Forget the back stabbing guys and gal let’s focus on winning the prize regardless if you are nominated or not.

SYMBOLISM OVER SUBSTANCE

confederate-flag-1-1400x650

Some of us out here in the west may feel the lasted issue with the confederate flag banning to be small but I don’t feel it is. There is more here and southern life is being touted down this is not a good thing.

It holds a larger meaning to both the people who live and love there states along with southern pride and concept of common sense is being trampled on in the name of emotional symbolism.

The symbolism is the confederate flag and how some people feel the true meaning is racism, while others look at the substance of the real problem and know banning a flag will solve nothing.

The real issue with racism is sin and taking way objects or banning flags might pacify some it does nothing to address the actual problem of race relations.

The flag itself is a historical references and symbol to southern pride, rebellion of then the current federal government and the freedom of states and their peoples right to succeed or leave the federal union.

Unfortunately for the south slavery was an important part of their economic development and without slaved labor they would be inferior to the industrial North.

By no means is slavery moral or ethical and not every person who lived in the southern states owned or condoned slavery but many condoned the action of succession and leaving the current union.

In 1992 a Clinton Gore presidential campaign button was designed around the confederate flag, now did this mean the Clintons were trying to sure up all the white racist votes?

flag

Nonsense, being from two southern states the Clinton Gore campaign was showing their southern pride, if they garnered a few extra votes from white power so be it (only joking).

The hysterical and emotional frenzy of the symbolic nature of the confederate flag could be dealt with in two ways. Let the frenzy go on hoping eventually the hysteria will die down and go away and by this time next year no one remembers.

Another way is for our leaders spiritual, academic and political to take control and educate the symbolism and the substance of what the root of the issue is about.

Although thus far a few spiritual leaders have weighed in on the issue we have seen little or no academic presence and the political leadership has been very poor but is that surprising.

Political leaders will only address this issue based on the path of least resistance; they will take the side of which democracy complains the most and do their best not to insult both the symbolic emotional side and the substance side.

To the politician both sides are votes to win from so taking one side or another is a no win game thus making this into a game of winning votes not morally siding with the truth.

This is call this is bad democracy and its at its worst, people need leaders to make decisions based on a republic not a democracy in this kind of setting.

Bad democracy is majority rules regardless the outcome based on self interest. It’s a democracy of many but of selfish interest, either from the many or condoned by the leadership for their own self interest.

While academia sits on its laurels history is being misguided by hysteria. The one institution that should know the soul of the confederate flag says nothing.

The root of the problem is sin, racism is sin and no symbolic gesture to ban or permanent removal of a flag will fix the substance issue of sin.

Politicians tend to avoid sin as a word, finding a good statesman in this day is hard to come by.

If anything politics will run for the aid of science to help define sin in a more politically correct way without using the Bible or God, it’s rarely done but give it time our president is giving it a try right now.

This leaves our spiritual and academic leaders to calm the waters. We are in need of spiritual leaders to confront the root of the sustenance which is sin.

They need to offer the service of dealing with this sin and most of all the healing act of repentance of the sin.

The academics can offer truth in history which should have been done at the grade school level all the way through college.

The combination of calling out the substance of racism as sin with the historical value of truth defining what the substance of the symbolic nature of the confederacy was.

What can the common sense person do, unfortunately the common man is losing his and her grip in this world but stay strong seek and study truth in God.

Study and know the history of this nation. This will not be the last time history will be attacked by symbolic nonsense so be prepared.

INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS STATES RIGHTS

satan

Looking at the Indiana issue over the last few days I see the issues of importance for both side of the ideological and political isle the question is do individuals and states have freedom and rights of their own or is the federal government the final word when it interprets cases and are they always correct.

I look at Indiana as this is a states’ rights issue upholding the personal freedom issues of an individual’s moral or ethical objections and the federal government should stay out of the way.

Now the RFRA was enacted in 1993 and endorsed by then president Clinton, Congressman Chuck Schumer and Senator Ted Kennedy all three leftist.

It’s my guess this was an act to try and sure up the Clinton religious voting base to show America democrats that states had this right also I believe this was to sure up the American Indian vote because the bill affected Native American religious liberties as well this was nothing but a vote grab bill and had nothing to do with religious freedom.

In 1997 part of the bill was overturned and in 2003 the act was amended Different states do use this law and can enact it based on their interpretation of the bill.

To me states have these rights and have the right to enact them the governor and the state representatives are by the way representing the people of that state. 

It is a libertarian idea but individuals both owners and customers reserve the right to sell or buy from a individual based on creed or belief which is more of an ideology not always religion but a creed.

The federal government in the 1964 civil rights act made it illegal to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex and national order and I guess one can make a argument that creed can be religious but one can make the same argument that creed is not.

I believe our florist and bakers that have refused to give services to what they feel are morally objectionable on the bases of their idea of what is moral what is right and wrong to them.

The individual is refusing to give services based or doing business with somebody they do not agree with whether it be their belief, lifestyle or what they are participating in and the state is upholding this right to do so feeling there is no discrimination going on just a disagreement in belief or creed.

Should that person who has the business and is refusing to serve just coexist, get along and let cooler heads prevail. Should the customer do the same, go somewhere else like Costco or a supermarket or just have a wedding cake made then add on their own creed or belief after they have purchased the item, getting along and letting cooler heads prevail?

Should we force private people to create something that they feel is morally religiously wrong? If they refuse to serve or create do you call it discrimination.

Can you change the color of your skin, can you change your race, you can change your religion but should you have to?

Should you be so bold to advertise your religion for the sole purpose to cause strife? What about belief, do you have the right to refuse based on what another person views of what is right and wrong and should you be so bold to advertise that belief on the sole purpose to cause strife?

Would this be the same argument if Anton Lavey from the church of Satan or two people that practice Wiccan came to a baker and asked them to make a cake with a broken cross and derogatory terms about God or Jesus? Would you insist the bakery make this cake for this celebration of marriage?

On the same issue what if a bride and groom asked a homosexual florist to arrange flowers with a tag on them proclaiming Matthew 19: 4-6, does the florist have the right to refuse service based on they have an objection to that scripture?

Overlooking the RFRA and not allowing states to enact a provision takes away from the sovereignty of each state something I believe our framers wanted each state to have. If we can’t uphold states rights that try and uphold individual rights then why have individual states?

HOW WE GOT HERE

911

HOW WE GOT HERE

The small topic of the week has been Christians and the tolerance of torture so I would like to throw my two cents in to the topic as well because I believe there is more to this than what we want to admit.

This all started last week when my Senator from California Dianne Feinstein in my opinion committed treason and published the CIA reports on our interrogation practices used on war criminals from the 911 attack of 2001.dianne-feinstein

When Feinstein brought those interrogation tactics out into the public she not only put every American in this country at risk she put every American dignitary and every service men and women in the armed forces that serve around the world at risk as well not to mention the free world.

Feinstein should be impeached, arrested tried and sent to prison for treason for putting Americans at risk.

Now with that off my chest let us proceed, I believe this whole situation of torture to get much needed information to find Osama Bin Laden is very involved and cannot be just looked over as a bunch of CIA agents torturing prisoners of war because president George W Bush said it was fine.

The debate should Christian’s condone torture is a no brainer no they should not but we need to look at what got us to this time in our lives that we had to use torture to keep our country safe and exact revenge on the over 2500 people killed in the September 11th 2001 attack.

There are two levels to look at, one being the political and the other being the Christian view and both are valid and important to look at so let’s precede to understanding how we arrived at not only torture but revenge

First we will look at the political side of how we got to torture and what could have been done to avoid it. It started back in the 1980’s when Senator Charlie Wilson from Texas saw how the people of Afghanistan where getting slandered by the Russians.

Wilson convinced president Reagan and with the help of some other military geniuses acquired stinger missiles in the hands of Afghan rebels to fight against the invading communist Russians.wilson4

This was a win win kill for America, our stinger missiles helped the Afghan rebels defeat the Russians and forced them to retreat from Afghanistan. This also helped the Americans win the cold war by causing Russia to spend more money on a losing battle ultimately killing the Russian government and loosing the cold war.

When president Regans term ended George H Bush won the 1988 presidency. When the cold war ended Bush 41 stopped funding the Afghans allowing for the extreme Islam to make their move in the region.

In 1992 President Bill Clinton won the presidency and in 1993 the first attack on the world trade center was tried killing 6 people and injuring 1000. In 2000 the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen killing 17 service men.

uss cole

The 1993 attack was a declaration of war, the 2000 USS Cole attack was a declaration of war and yet President Clinton stood by and did nothing. What should have been the beginning of trying to stop radical Islamic terrorist in 1993 became the killing of 17 service men with the attack on the USS Cole.

In 2000 President George W Bush was elected president and 8 months in to his first term September 11th  2001 20977 people died when radical Islamic terrorist flew American planes into the twin towers, the pentagon and the attempt of what might have been the US White House.010914-F-8006R-002

This should have been stopped back in 1993; Bush 41 and Clinton should have never stopped supplying the Afghan rebels with missiles they were friends of the U.S. and were keeping extreme Islam from growing in the region. But because our Presidents forgot our Middle Eastern allies and did not declare war on radical Islam in 1993 or 2000, September 11 attacks happened and the US military went to war.

Bush 43 sent our soldiers to war but did not ask the American People to invest themselves in this war, we were told to go shopping and live our lives and because of this in my opinion is why we forgot we were attacked.

When prisoners of war were captured they were not interrogated in the battlefield and they were not tried and sentenced to death in the battlefield. They were shipped to American soil and that put all Americans at danger with this action, those prisoners were interrogated on American soil and I believe that was a mistake.

In 2011 Seal team 6 attacked and killed Osama Bin Laden and President Obama who like President Clinton did nothing took full credit for the killing of Bin Laden.

It was the tactics employed by the CIA years before President Obama was elected that killed Bin Laden not the expert foreign policy of President Obama or Hilary Clinton or lack there of.

As you can see politically this all may have been avoided way back in the early 1990’s but it didn’t happen. We had defunded the Afghan rebels with Bush 41, We had a week president in Clinton and we had and president that refused to let the American people invest themselves in the Iraq and Afghan war and for that we are here in a place where we had to tolerate torture in order to keep our country safe and try and win a war that Americans had forgotten.

In 2008 we elected a president that is undoing everything that we went to war for in 2001 and now Christians in the Middle East are dying, children are having their heads cut off for believing in Jesus this is where we are so where will we go from here.

Now the Christian view, in my opinion no Christian tolerates or condones torture. For a long time now America has been pulling away from God, sometimes a lot and sometimes not at all but for the most part America has slowly pulled away from God but God has not turned his back on us.

We legalized the killing of unborn children and our country condones biblical immorality. The world is starting to no longer live in a black and white world and our country is mimicking this by excusing bad behavior. Doing wrong is no longer necessarily bad and our feelings are more important than following God’s moral law.

As Christians we too are attacked and are blind to God’s moral law and his ethical behavior. We make excuses for bad behavior and we do in the name of God’s love.

Christians are being attacked not always physically but mentally and socially and it’s wearing down on some. God’s love does not include condoning immorality, it does not condone putting other God’s before him.

There is a time when Christians have to stand up for what it right, what is moral and what is ethical the 10 commandment are not the 10 suggestions.

The more Christians give into changing God’s natural law, his moral law and ethical behavior the more division we create amongst ourselves. Satan is convincing Christians that we should not judge sin. Since we all sin we should just accept one another as we are and sin equally. The 10 commandment are just rules to live by.

This division Lucifer has created is causing Christians to lose common ground with each other. If we lose common ground with each other we are no longer practice Christianity but only practice religion and there will be no ground to stand together on.

As our country pulls away from God, his moral law and ethical behavior we then lose our faith in our country and in each other. It’s a division between the people and the government and if we demand our government to be secular and not follow God’s moral law and ethical behavior then why should we expect anything less than torture.

Our country was once strong in God, our military was week but we continued to grow none the less. Our country is now strong in government and week in God in my opinion will continue to get weaker as long as we continue to walk away from God.

Bottom line is as a Christian you can be upset and mad about what this country has done to try and protect not only you but over 300 million people that live in America but the fault does not lie with one person it lies with all of us. We are all to blame for this and if we don’t stop walking from God but instead to God we can expect more of this kind of behavior to come.

AMERICA LOOSES IN 2016 BECAUSE THE GOP WON IN 2014

AMERICA LOOSES IN 2016 BECAUSE THE GOP WON IN 2014

Output file

We vote today folks so let’s make it count shall we; the title of this blog came to me last night on my way home from work. I was listening to Glen Beck on the radio and he predicted the GOP would win the house and the Senate and that may be a bad thing. My drive is only an hour so I never got to listen to what he meant by that but I have a thought on what it means.

My thought is this the current leadership of the GOP is piss poor to say the least, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are a joke for the GOP they may as well be moderate democrats. They show no real leadership in a party that once had both houses and lost it and now are on the verge of reclaiming the power again. I guess that is the word “Power” those two see this as the same as the democrats it’s nothing but power and what they can do to rule the concept of their democracy. Well GOP senators and congressmen and this is where you don’t get it. You don’t do your job for money and power and insider trading you does this to represent your state and your country. You work for the people of your state and you make and break your country with the decisions you make or lack thereof.

The lack of leadership is what got us president Obama and Harry Reid and I fear the lack of leadership again by Boehner and McConnell will yield us President Hillary Clinton in 2016. Problem is people vote big on their pocket book and they are easily bought into by lies and deceit something the Democratic Party is good at and something moderate republicans use to keep their own hope alive. We have to stop this voters, the GOP needs to win the house the senate and the presidency to keep America from slipping in to economic and moral ruin.

Yes the GOP leadership is crap I know but so is the democratic party, it’s more than crap is just right down immoral right now and if you opted out on voting today or yesterday if you absent “T” then you voted for Harry Reid and or any other slug running for office on the democratic ticket. Voters have to be strong and vote out these democrats officials that go along with socialized health care, allowing illegal’s to run amock while we the people split the bill. In 2016 no matter how week Boehner and McConnell are no matter how stupid your GOP congressman and senator is we have to vote for who the next Republican presidential nominee is because no matter how moderate they are they still will be better than Clinton or Biden or any other democrat communist that comes along.

Stand strong and keep the GOP together and after the 2016 election then we get rid of Boehner and McConnell, you vote out your lukewarm moderate senator and congressman that plagues your state and vote in a conservative American that will work for you the people and not their own power and pocket book. Stand strong America and be patient, we will have the chance to take our country back but we have to do it right. We can’t do it for ourselves we have to do it for our future, our parents, our kids and our way of life. Please today do the right thing, Vote and let us get this country back on its feet.

Mr. T’s Opinion-

 

America stands with Israel just not the America’s president

AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL JUST NOT THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT 

ISRAEL

Yes I do feel this way our only ally in the Middle East, the country that takes the brunt of terrorism and the country that has tested all our military might in real time battles is respected my most of America but not our president and his administration.

I think one main reason why Israel is our ally is due to location, they are really the only Free State in what is plethora of dictators, and police states that practice lawless and Stone Age leadership. The west puts up with the Arabic States behavior mainly due to both need each other. The west needs oil so to speak and the east needs leadership and technology. Since the Israel became a nation in 1948 America has supported this small country based on my first reason. Israel is the only real democracy in the region. Whether it’s been a democrat or a republican our government has supported this diamond in a region of terror and hate.

It’s my contention that this current president does not want to support Israel but was forced into the support based on Israel is our ally. Although we cannot know what is in our presidents heart it’s safe to say President Obama is an Islamic, borderline radical Muslim sympathizer who I feel would leave Israel to its own support if the polling data would let him.

While most Americans support a free Israel and believe they have a right to defend their country I feel our president would like to see Israel gone forever. What our president lacks in knowledge is if Israel is lost to the radical Islam terror groups so will the rest of the world. The biggest thorn to Israel has been Islam and the biggest thorn to Islam has been Israel. Presidents that know and understand this use this to the advantage of peace with these Arabic states because when you already have a guard at the gates it gives you a bigger ability to monitor the inmates.

 I do not believe our president and secretary of State knows and understands this, nor did the Clinton administration when they tried to monkey with the Israeli elections to broker a peace with Israel and Palestine. It failed because of pure hatred of the Islamic community towards Israel and another reason why Clinton 2016 for president needs not to happen, Israel will again pay the price for a Hillary presidency.

President Obama states he is Christian, yes once a practicing Muslim he was converted by Jeremiah Wright a pastor who’s sermons of hatred for America and Isreal converts a peace loving Muslim Barack Obama to a Christian. Obama’s own religious advisor Joel Hunter lacks faith in God himself. His idea of God’s beloved creation of man could destroy his creation of the earth is pathetic at best.

It’s very sad to see our current administration trying it’s best to turn its back on Israel our first line of defense of the Middle East. What we need to do is to pray that God will continue to guide good decisions on the behalf of Israel, America and the European west. Pray our representatives will make the right decisions and stand up with Israel and continue the support that I believe America has with this small but great force in a region of hatred because if Israel falls radical Islam will come for us next.

IMPEACHMENT

IMPEACHMENT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS

Impeach-610x400

That word Impeachment is out again, I’ve been hearing it for some time now but in the last few days it’s been ringing very loud “We need to impeach the president” but do you know what you are saying.

We need to impeach president Obama yes we do, he has clearly broke law of the president along with his administration so with that I say yes our representatives need to bring impeachment proceedings down on the president and his administration.holer

Be clear and understand this does not mean he is booted out of office in fact nothing may happen to him. Mind you he is on his last term he has little to lose and when his term is over the next person ready to take his place under the liberal progressive regime will campaign as I’m not him I’m a different person if you had voted for me back in 2008 none of this would had happened.hillary

I think people seem to feel if you’re impeached your booted out of office because Nixon was impeached and he was booted out of office. Not true, Nixon was not impeached. Most likely Nixon would have been impeached but they would have had to prove what he was accused of first before they could impeach him.

Nixon had respect for the office of the Presidency and thus felt if he stayed on and fought these possible charges against him and his administration it would tear the country apart so he resigned the office of the presidency and stepped down.

Fast forward 20 year later when Clinton, Bill that is not Hillary was accused of conduct under the oath of the presidency. Clinton was found guilty of perjury before a grand jury, he was later censured and I believe he ended up being disbarred. He was never removed from office he later served out his term and Clinton’s to this day still have enormous amount of political power in the Democratic Party.

bil ken

Yes president Obama needs impeachment proceedings to take place for himself and his administration but be aware this will not rid him of office. Like I said before he’s on his last term. In 2016 the next group of hungry democrats that are buying for power are just going to say I’m not Obama if you had voted for me in 2008 I would never had done that so be for warned.

Best thing we as people can do, yes ask our representatives for impeachment proceeding against this administration but most of all we need to vote. We need to kick out these bums that say they will represent us and don’t. I say give your Congressman, Senator and state representatives two terms to start making things right otherwise vote them out. This keeps them from getting corrupt with power. If they can’t prove they are there to represent you then they need to leave.

vote

In closing understand what it means when you say impeachment, if you want the president out well it’s not going to happen but we can make his life hell by voting correct this year 2014 and voting correct in 2016.
