The Sierra Club says climate change deniers are more likely to be racists!  Well, there’s killing two birds with one stone!

According to Heather Smith for SIERRA, The national magazine of the Sierra Club, “People who don’t believe that climate change is real are more likely to be old, more likely to be Republican, and more likely to be white.”

So you’re saying the smartest group among us don’t necessarily believe in all of this climate change mumbo jumbo?

Makes sense to me so far.

“They [the old, white, conservatives] are also more likely to have racist beliefs, according to a recent study published in the journal ‘Environmental Politics.’”

cons 8

“Environmental Politics.”  Now there’s a liberal rag of a magazine if ever I heard of one!

I take it they’re just assuming the racist part because we’re talking about white conservatives here.

I doubt they asked people in the study if they were racists or not.

Ms. Smith goes on to say, “This correlation is a relatively recent phenomenon—one that occurred in the wake of Barack Obama’s election in 2008.”

cons 7

Oh, okay…, now I’m starting to get where this is going.

“The paper hypothesizes that, however moderate his actions, the mere existence of our first African American president dropping climate change into the State of the Union Address and joining the Paris climate accord correlates with a significant number of white Americans deciding that they were done believing in climate change.”

“This correlation has also been documented with regard to health-care reform—after the Obama administration made it a priority, a subset of white Americans who had supported the issue during the Clinton administration suddenly switched their position.”

This last claim is just a plain fabrication.  Not many people supported government run health care at all during the Clinton years.  That’s why they failed to implement it.  ObamaCare was actually signed into law.  I don’t think their argument stands up here.

Their racist claims regarding President Obama and climate change are way off base as well.

cons 4

When are these liberals going to understand that conservatives didn’t care about the color of Obama’s skin…, it was HIS policies, and HIS racism that turned conservatives off.

“Political messaging with racist over- and undertones has been deployed relentlessly by some politicians because appealing to prejudice and paranoia really does motivate racist, paranoid people to show up and vote.”

Now there something we can all agree on!

Except they’re referring to Republicans and I’m thinking about the Democrats!

cons 5

These crazy “studies” are about as valuable as their polling numbers!

But accuracy was never their goal in the first place.

It was the liberal messaging that was the most important thing.  It was only a means to an end.  Some hogwash to back up a failed narrative.

WINNING!

“I’m a racist, he’s a racist, she’s a racist, we’re a racist, wouldn’t you like to be a racist too?!

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Trump policies, racism, may cause some black women’s weight problems, a Rutgers professor says.”

blacks 1

“Brittney Cooper a Rutgers University professor believes President Trump’s policies and racism is causing black women’s weight problems.”

blacks 13

Okay…, all of these racism claims and Trump blaming are getting pretty ridiculous now!

blacks 2

Are President Trump’s racist policies causing me to stuff my face in order to make myself feel better?

“That’s the sort of question some black women may be asking themselves, a Rutgers University professor suggested during a recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Network.”

“Although, more accurately, the problem may be the stress and anxiety caused by the policies rather than the policies themselves, Brittney Cooper, who teaches gender studies at the New Jersey-based university, said on a recent episode of ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation.’”

blacks 3

It’s not the policies, stupid…, it’s the policies!

President Trump has not even been in office for three years.

I would be willing to bet that almost all of these women haven’t changed much since the “glorious” Obama years.

Just sayin’.

“Research shows black women lose weight more slowly than white women, and the Trump presidency may be exacerbating the situation, Cooper said on the program, according to CampusReform.org.”

This just keeps getting “stupider” by the minute!

‘“We are living in the Trump era,’ she said, ‘and look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.’”

blacks 9

blacks 8

What?!

Excuse me?

President Trump’s policies are “killing your people?!”

blacks 14

Actually, millions of minorities have been lifted out of poverty.

Millions of minorities have been lifted off of food stamps.

Millions of minorities are finding jobs and getting better jobs and higher pay.

People have at least the same access to health care and insurance as they did under Barack Obama, and even better in most cases.

President Trump has implemented many new policies aimed at improving the economic situations of our inner-cities.

If you were being honest, you would have to say that minorities are definitely winning with President Trump.

According to the GOP website:

“President Trump has fostered a roaring economy for all Americans, driving down unemployment rates for minority groups, with African American, Asian, and Hispanic unemployment hitting record lows in recent months.”

“Under President Obama, African American unemployment was on average 5.2 percent higher than the general population, and Hispanic unemployment averaged 1.9 percent higher.”

“Under President Trump, not only has minority unemployment plummeted, but the unemployment gap has narrowed to 3 percent for African Americans, and 0.8 percent for Hispanics.”

The “Opportunity Zones” incentive is a new community investment tool, established by President Trump, in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. Opportunity Zones provide a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into dedicated “Opportunity Funds.”

“President Trump has focused on providing jobs training programs that help Americans who can’t afford a college education earn money while they learn.”

“In an effort to promote the growth of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), President Trump has increased funding for various HBCU programs.”

“Under President Trump, technical education and vocational studies, programs that are heavily utilized by minorities, have received $1.2 billion in funding.”

“Under President Trump, Obamacare’s harmful and costly individual mandate has been repealed and access to Short-Term Limited-Duration plans has been expanded in order to provide more affordable healthcare plans to the American people.”

“Premiums for these plans can be up to 80 percent lower than Obamacare healthcare plans.”

“President Trump has been an avid advocate of prison reform, supporting The First Step Act, sentencing reforms, and hosting a Prison Reform Summit where he sought input from over 100 activists, experts and policymakers. President Trump plans to address the partisan divide in Congress on improving prison conditions and better-preparing prisoners for re-entry into society.”

“The First Step Act, which would place federal prisoners closer to home, allow more home confinement for lower-level offenders, and expand prison employment programs, has also been signed into law.

And these are just a few of the horrible injustices and terribly racist policies, championed by President Trump, that should keep African-American women up at night and stuffing their faces!

blacks 4

‘“I hate when people talk about black women being obese,’ Cooper continued. ‘I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create.’”

We feel for you and your sisters Ms. Cooper.  I’ve heard reports that the day after President Trump’s inauguration day, hordes of republican staffers invaded our inner-cities, literally stuffing food down the throats of African-American women.

Damn those whiteys for building all of those KFC’s, Pizza Huts, Popeye’s, McDonald’s and Taco Bells!

“She added: ‘It’s literally that the racism that you’re experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.’”

I’ve heard it said that we create our own hell.

“We create our own hell, it is the sum of all our decisions – we are not sentenced, we condemn ourselves.” ― Gabrielle Estres

If we choose to see everything through a pair of racist glasses, that is exactly what we are going to see.

“In a separate interview, Cooper told CampusReform.org she was citing 1990s information from Dr. Arline Geronimus, a public health research professor at the University of Michigan.”

“Geronimus ‘argues pretty convincingly that black women have physiological stress responses to racial stimuli and this affects our long-term health,’ Cooper said.”

I don’t think many people would argue that stress in general can have a definite affect our health.

“I was citing this body of work and the president’s status as a racially polarizing figure that contributes to issues of racial stress for people of color.”

I would contend it is the sum of our democrat “friends” and the liberal propaganda main stream media who are fraudulently creating racial stress in our country at President Trump’s expense.

Ask a liberal to find a direct quote of President Trump’s or a real example of one of his policies that can be identified as being racist.

They won’t be able to do it…, because there aren’t any!

They have been told, and are continually being told there are, and they are taking these libelous accusations as the truth…, which they are not.

Should college athletes get paid?

Well, there’s “getting paid,” and then there’s “GETTING PAID!”

athletes 7

According to Alan Binder of The New York Times, “N.C.A.A. Athletes Could Be Paid Under a New California Law.  Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill to allow college athletes to hire agents and make money from endorsements.”

This is the “getting paid” scenario…, not the “GETTING PAID” scenario.

“The measure, the first of its kind, threatens the business model of college sports.”

Translated…, this means that colleges are worried because they may have to stop taking advantage of these young athletes and actually operate like the businesses they are.

Under the new California law, college athletes, said more correctly, would be “allowed to earn money from endorsements…,” they would not be “getting paid” for their athletic services to the given college.

So all of this “wringing of hands” is just over allowing the students to make their own money on the side.

This interpretation of “getting paid” should be a no-brainer.  This is The United States of America after all.  This is a capitalist economy.  People should not be hindered from making money (legally) if they have the opportunity to do so.

This whole concept of “amateurism” should be done away with in my opinion.

We’ve already ditched “amateurism” as far as the Olympics is concerned.  Have our Olympic teams fallen apart?  Or does it just seem like business as usual?

I would argue that nobody cares.

“It has been a bedrock principle behind college sports: Student-athletes should not be paid beyond the costs of attending a university.”

Well my friends…, it’s long overdue that this “bedrock principle behind college sports” be “put to bed.”

athletes 2

athletes 3

The current system looks more like the college institutions are the plantations and the student athletes are the indentured servants.

The students are getting some level of reciprocation (scholarships), but the whole situation is VERY much in the “plantation owners’” favor.

athletes 4

athletes 5

“The new law, which is supposed to take effect in 2023 [and in California only], attacks the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s long-held philosophy that college athletes should earn a degree, not money, for playing sports. That view, also under assault in several other states and on Capitol Hill, has held up even as the college sports industry swelled into a behemoth that generated at least $14 billion last year, and as athletes faced mounting demands on their bodies and schedules.”

A $14 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY!

I would argue that figure is quite conservative as well.

Universities across the country already get many “considerations” as far as making money is concerned.  Please see my blog from November 16, 2017, “Colleges are ‘majoring’ in making money.”

“Every single student in the university can market their name, image and likeness; they can go and get a YouTube channel, and they can monetize that. The only group that can’t are athletes. Why is that?”

“The N.C.A.A., which has been studying the possibility of rewriting its rules on endorsements, has called the measure [the proposed law in California] “unconstitutional” and said without elaboration on Monday that it would “consider next steps in California.”

Look who’s calling who’s practices “unconstitutional!”

Is the NCAA serious?!

I don’t like throwing the “R” word around, but the NCAA’s practices could definitely be seen as racist in nature, seeing that an overwhelming percentage of marketable college athletes are African-American.

‘“People are just so aware of the fact that you’ve got a multi-billion-dollar industry that — let’s set aside scholarships — basically denies compensation to the very talent, the very work that produces that revenue,’ said Senator Nancy Skinner, a Democrat, who wrote the legislation. ‘Students who love their sport and are committed to continuing their sport in college are handicapped in so many ways, and it’s all due to N.C.A.A. rules.’”

“People said, ‘You know what, we’ve got to force their hands,’ said Gov. Newsom, who was once a regent for some of California’s largest public universities. “They’re not going to do the right thing on their own. They only do the right thing when they’re sued or they’re forced to do the right thing.”

“Only a fraction of college athletes eventually turn professional, and for the rest, ‘college is the only time they have to profit off their hard-earned athletic successes,’ Hayley Hodson, a former Stanford volleyball player, said during legislative testimony in July.”

I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. Hodson.  College athletes are forced to make many sacrifices and, in many cases, suffer through serious and devastating physical injuries for the “good of team,” which really means for the good of the university’s bank account!

athletes 8

Madisen Martinez, on the CollegeXpress.com website, says, “Being a college student-athlete is a full-time job, bouncing between the weight room, the court/field, classes, and film sessions. College athletics are extracurricular activities, but the schedules of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) tournaments require an extended period in which the student-athletes must miss school. Not only do they miss class, but they are absent for nationally televised games that make a lot of money and receive millions of viewers, according to Marc Edelman in his article ‘21 Reasons Why Student-Athletes Are Employees and Should Be Allowed to Unionize.’”

Obviously these colleges are more concerned with their streams of revenue as opposed to the education their “students” are receiving.

‘“Most profits from college athletics do not go toward academics,’ reports Edelman.”

The profits go towards making more profits.

Like bigger and better football stadiums, seating 70,000, 80,000, 90,000, and even 100,000 fans and more.

Like bigger and better “state of the art” basketball arenas, and bigger and better “state of the art” training facilities.

And let’s not forget the multi-million dollar contracts for the high profile coaches of these “programs.”

Let’s not fool ourselves…, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY…, just like it always is.

The NBA (the No Brains Association) just stepped in a huge pile of Chinese crap!

…and then they put their foot in their mouths!!!

Gross!!!

Oh, yes, they, did.

And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of clueless, disingenuous, hypocrites!

chinanba 12

China holds the potential for the NBA to earn billion and billions of dollars in the near future and beyond.

The NBA is HUGE in China…, because the Chinese government allows it to be.

chinabna 6

Remember…, China does not operate quite the same way that America does.

The number of pro basketball (NBA) fans in China is twice the size of the entire U.S. population!

China is the goose that was getting ready to lay an endless supply of golden eggs for the NBA.

Then, last week, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey felt compelled to tweet out, “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.”

Saaaaay what?!

OOOOPS!

Upon learning of the tweet, the Chinese government, who is currently at odds with Hong Kong, immediately said it was going to cut ties with the NBA and the Houston Rockets in particular.

How many lives to you guess Twitter has ruined?

Well, you can add at least one more to that list.

But wait…, what happened?

What happened to NBAers snidely shooting their liberal mouths off, while being praised by their contemporaries and the left in general?

Money.

Money is what happened…, and money rules…, end of story.

chinanba 10

If these ultra-rich NBA prima donnas understand anything, it should be that money is the bottom line.

It’s just that some of our NBA friends are just not as smart as some of the others.
Case in point…, the aforementioned Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey.

The NBA has become pretty political and pretty outspoken the last few years.  We’ve heard from “stars” like LeBron (SheBron) James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Paul shooting their mouths off, as well as coaches Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich.

chinanba 2

They have all denounced President Trump.  SheBron James has actually stooped low enough to call our president a “bum.”

“From gun control to immigration, Kerr and Popovich are typically outspoken about social issues in the United States.  However, when asked about the controversy Monday, Kerr said it was a ‘bizarre international story’ and ‘vowed to read up on it before commenting,’” according to Ben Shapiro for Fox News.

“In 2017, Commissioner Adam [take me to your leader] Silver actually tried to blackmail the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, by pulling the All-Star Game, all in an attempt to restore the so-called ‘bathroom bill’ for transgender people.”

chinanba 1

chinanba 9chinabna 8

“Silver told CNN just last year that ‘part of being an NBA player’ is social activism and a ‘sense of an obligation, social responsibility and a desire to speak up directly about issues that are important.’ Silver stated the league wants players to ‘be multi-dimensional people and fully participate as citizens.’”

Well, apparently this “social responsibility” and “speaking up directly about issues that are important” only goes so far.

These ideals are great when attacking conservatives and President Trump, but big “no-nos” when they might cost the NBA any money.

So what did the NBA do?

Morey was forced to delete his tweet and genuflect before the Chinese communist government with an apology.

James Harden, a star on Morey’s team, then tweeted, “We apologize. We love China. We love playing there.”

chinanba 7

Silver and the NBA put out an apology in Chinese saying (as translated), “We are extremely disappointed in the inappropriate comment by the general manager of the Houston Rockets.”

Hmmm.  “Social activism” sure looks different these days!

It looks more like “social butt kissing” to me!

It’s amazing how many human rights violations can be excused for a couple billion dollars.

Way to stand firm on your beliefs NBA!

“President Trump mocked two of his frequent critics, NBA head coaches Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich, because of their responses to the ongoing standoff between the league [the NBA] and China.  Mr. Trump also accused them and the NBA of ‘pandering to China’ after the league scrambled to address the aftermath of a deleted tweet from Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey that supported the human rights protests in Hong Kong.”

chinanba 13

“After an executive bill signing Wednesday, Mr. Trump responded to a question about China applying pressure to the NBA and went directly after Kerr, the Golden State Warriors coach.  ‘I watch this guy Steve Kerr,’ Mr. Trump said. ‘And he was like a little boy, he was so scared to be even answering the question.  He couldn’t answer the question,’ he added. ‘He was shaking “Oh, I don’t know, I don’t know.” He didn’t know how to answer the question. And yet he’ll talk about the United States very badly.’ He also brought up Popovich’s response, but said ‘he didn’t look quite as scared.’”

“Mr. Trump also took aim at the league at large.  ‘I watch the way that Kerr, Popovich, and some of the others were pandering to China and yet to our own country, they don’t – it’s like they don’t respect it,’ Mr. Trump said.”

chinanba 3

chinanba 11

Well said Mr. President…, you’re right on point…, again…, as usual.

You may not believe in “God,” but you should at least believe in a “creator.”

For whatever reason, there are people (various scientists, astronomers, cosmologists, scholars and their disciples) who are bound and determined to convince you there is no “God,” there is no “creator” and that everything we see in the universe “just happened.”

Well, let’s take a look at how exactly, THEY BELIEVE, all of this “happened.”

In “the beginning…,” there was nothing…, except a very small ball with infinite density and intense heat called a Singularity.

I’ve heard scientists say that everything that exists in the universe today was compacted down into something about the size of a pea.

creator 14

The Big Bang theory states that all of the current and past matter in the Universe came into existence at the same time, roughly 13.8 billion years ago. At this time, all matter was compacted into that very small ball.  Then, suddenly, the Singularity exploded (began expanding), and the universe as we know it began.  The explosion also created the physical laws that govern our ever-expanding cosmos.

creator 2

Now I ain’t what these “smart people” would call a genius, but I do have some questions.

Like, in the middle of all of this infinite nothingness, where did this “pea” with everything in it come from?

You can’t create something from nothing…, so where did it come from?

And they’re trying to tell me that all the matter in the universe…, all of the galaxies, all of the suns, all of the planets, everything, was squished into something the size of a pea?

And these scientists, astronomers, cosmologists and scholars actually believe this?

Then we have the issue of “life,” and where did we and all of the living things on Earth come from?

Again, for whatever reason, there are people (various scientists, astronomers, cosmologists, scholars and their disciples) who are bound and determined to convince you there is no “God,” there is no “creator” and that all “life” on Earth “just happened.”

Let’s take a look at how exactly, THEY BELIEVE, “life” came to be.

According to them, the first known single-celled organisms appeared on Earth about 3.5 billion years ago, roughly a billion years after Earth formed. More complex forms of life took longer to evolve, with the first multi-cellular animals not appearing until about 600 million years ago.

Scientists and scholars would have us believe that “life” began way back then in a prehistoric tide pool, which was a “soup” containing all of the chemicals and minerals needed to create “life.”

All of these “building blocks of life” were swirling around in this puddle until they randomly coalesced, formed a single cell creature, and was then somehow sparked into “life.”

Or…, these organisms somehow arrived here on a meteorite from outer space, where they would have had to have been randomly created and sparked to life.

These single celled creatures then multiplied, and over another million years these single cell creature evolved into multi-celled creatures.

多細胞化(日本語)

Then, over another million years, these multi-celled creatures became more and more complex, eventually forming the simplest of sea creatures.

creator 6

After millions of years more, some sea creatures evolved to the point where they crawled out of the sea.

creator 7

It was from this creature, which crawled from the ocean, that all reptiles, birds and mammals are descended from…, including us.

So there you have their explanation for the origins of life on our planet.

Again…, I ain’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I’m not the dullest either, and I do have a few questions and comments.

First of all, a “simple” single celled creature is not that “simple.”

In fact, a single cell is more complex that a space shuttle.  It’s true.

Print

creator 4

I find it very hard to believe that all of the components of even a single cell would manage to randomly fall into place, much less come to “life.”

If you can get past this first part, I guess the rest of it would seem plausible to you as well.

I guess as long as you have a million years to wait, anything can happen!

“God does not play dice with the universe.” – Albert Einstein

According to an article on Everystudent.com, “Einstein of course believed in mathematical laws of nature, so his idea of a ‘God’ was at best someone who formulated the laws and then left the universe alone to evolve according to these laws,’ physicist Vasant Natarajan wrote in an essay.”

“Einstein himself even cleared up the matter in a letter he wrote in 1954…, “I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”

So I think we can say that even Einstein, who self admittedly did not believe in “God,” believed in a “creator” and admired the work of this “creator.”

Another EveryStudent.com article says we can use our DNA “ to show that science gives reason to believe in God’s existence.”

“British philosopher, Dr. Antony Flew, was a leading spokesperson for atheism, actively involved in debate after debate. However, scientific discoveries within the last 30 years brought him to a conclusion he could not avoid. In a video interview in December 2004 he stated, ‘Super-intelligence is the only good explanation for the origin of life and the complexity of nature.’  Prominent in his conclusion were the discoveries of DNA. Here’s why.”

“DNA in our cells is very similar to an intricate computer program.”

“A computer program is made up of a series of ones and zeros (called binary code). The sequencing and ordering of these ones and zeros is what makes the computer program work properly.”

“In the same way, DNA is made up of four chemicals, abbreviated as letters A, T, G, and C. Much like the ones and zeros, these letters are arranged in the human cell like this: CGTGTGACTCGCTCCTGAT and so on. The order in which they are arranged instructs the cell’s actions.”

creator 10

“What is amazing is that within the tiny space in every cell in your body, this code is three billion letters long!!”

“To grasp the amount of DNA information in one cell, ‘a live reading of that code at a rate of three letters per second would take thirty-one years, even if reading continued day and night.’  Wait, there’s more.”

“It has been determined that 99.9% of your DNA is similar to everyone’s genetic makeup.  What is uniquely you comes in the fractional difference in how those three billion letters are sequenced in your cells.”

“The U.S. government is able to identify everyone in our country by the arrangement of a nine-digit social security number. Yet, inside every cell in you is a three-billion-lettered DNA structure that belongs only to you. This code identifies you and continually instructs your cells’ behavior.”

“Dr. Francis Collins, director of the Human Genome Project (that mapped the human DNA structure) said that one can ‘think of DNA as an instructional script, a software program, sitting in the nucleus of the cell.’”

“Perry Marshall, an information specialist, comments on the implications of this. ‘There has never existed a computer program that wasn’t designed…[whether it is] a code, or a program, or a message given through a language, there is always an intelligent mind behind it.’”

“Just as former atheist Dr. Antony Flew questioned, it is legitimate to ask oneself regarding this three billion letter code instructing the cell…who wrote this script? Who placed this working code, inside the cell?”

“How can one explain this sophisticated messaging, coding, residing in our cells?”

“When looking at the DNA structure within the human body, we cannot escape the presence of intelligent (incredibly intelligent) design.”

We cannot escape the existence of a “creator.”

These scientists and scholars try to lump their theory of evolution into one general evolution theory.  But in truth, there are different types of “evolution.”

Their big fairy tale version of evolution happening over millions and millions of years is called MACROevolution.

creator 8

creator 9

MICROevolution refers to changes within a species or small group of organisms over a relatively short period of time.

We are allowed to believe in MICROevolution without believing in MACROevolution.

These scientists, astronomers, cosmologists, scholars and their disciples, are always pitting science against “God,” as if we have to choose one or the other.

This is a false narrative.

“God” loves science.

“God” invented science and all of the scientific laws we live by.

This is just another one of the big lies that these liberal pied pipers are attempting to morph into accepted facts.

creator 15

I think this article successfully used science, or the lack thereof, to establish that our world, and we, had a “creator.”

What if a new “whistleblower” “blew the whistle” on the two original “whistleblowers?”

Hey…, one good “whistle blow” deserves another…, don’t you agree?

blowers 7

First off…, what exactly is a “whistleblower?”

According to Merriam-Webster, a “whistleblower” is, “an employee who brings wrongdoing by an employer or other employees to the attention of a government or law enforcement agency and who is commonly vested by statute with rights and remedies for retaliation.”

In this case, the “statute with rights and remedies for retaliation” is The Whistleblower Protection Act.  “The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 is a United States federal law that protects federal whistleblowers who work for the government and report the possible existence of an activity constituting a violation of law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety.

I feel a case could be made against the two original whistleblowers that their partisan, premeditated, disingenuous, frivolous and fraudulent claims, could be considered a “gross waste of funds,” not to mention an illegitimate attempt to harm the reputation and effectiveness of a sitting president.

How much taxpayer money is being wasted here?

The Mueller witch hunt is said to have wasted well over $200 million.

And if that’s what they said it costed, then it was probably twice that!

If this impeachment hoax/circus goes on much longer, I’m sure it won’t take long before it approaches tens of millions of dollars as well.

It has become pretty apparent that the whistleblowers coordinated their complaints with impeach-happy democrat members of Congress, in order to continue to harass and impede President Trump.

blowers 8

It’s a shame that the democrats stooped low enough to use the whistleblower system as their chosen method to attack The President this time.

The whistleblower program is a well-intentioned law that has been co-opted by the democrats in order to try and “insulate” their accusers from any kind of cross examination or repercussions.

blowers 11

I must admit that it was an imaginative scheme.

The only problem is the democrats chose to “blow the whistle” on President Trump for something the Obama administration and Vice-President Biden actually did!

Ha!  What a bunch of maroons!

Then…, Nancy Pelosi chose to start her unofficial impeachment inquiry based on the whistleblower’s second hand, hearsay, knowledge, a day before President Trump released an actual transcript of the conversation in question, showing there was nothing referred to that could be considered improper at all.

It will be interesting to see how the democrats choose to try and save some face.

The democrats have made their filthy bed, and now they want push everyone into it.

They don’t even want to lie in it!

Will Ms. Pelosi pull the impeachment plug on “the fairy tale impeachment,” or will she and her co-conspirators choose to double down and come up with even more lies and disinformation?

Stay tuned for the next episode of “As the Stomach Turns!”

WINNING!

Are we “politically polarized” in America now?

Newt Gingrich’s daughter, Jackie Gingrich Cushman, thinks we are.

america 2

She feels, as a country, “we are engaged in a battle for our soul.”

I would tend to agree.

But it’s also a question of what’s fair and what’s unfair.

And a question of what’s true and what’s a lie?

And a question of what’s right and what’s wrong?

And a question of what’s good and what’s evil?

Jackie Gingrich Cushman, has written a new book called “Our Broken America,” which discusses “the polarization” and “the battle.”

america 1

“During my research for the book, I discovered that 55 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Democrats say they have few or no friends in the other major political party,” Gingrich Cushman says.

I can see that.

I mean…, on many issues, it would seem to be okay to “agree to disagree.”

But with some of the issues of today, I have a hard time with that philosophy.

For example:

If you’re okay with killing a baby seconds before it is about to be born…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 3

america 4

If you’re okay with attacking the 2nd amendment and disarming America’s law abiding citizens…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 5

america 6

If you’re okay with letting anyone and everyone cross the border into our country, whenever they want, and without any question or control…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 8

If you’re okay with protecting illegal immigrants that are already here, who have committed crimes against legal U.S. citizens…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 7

If you’re okay with the removal of God from all aspects of our society…, then we probably won’t be friends.

If you’re not smart enough to realize that the mainstream media has a liberal agenda and is constantly trying to undermine conservatism…, then we probably won’t be friends.

america 17

america 14

If you think we should go back to living like we did in the Middle Ages because you think we need to save the planet…, then we probably won’t be friends.

And there are other issues regarding globalism, the federal government taking over the healthcare system, and taxes…, but you get the picture.

“Most people would agree that our country is experiencing an unprecedented level of political polarization. This country is incredibly diverse in many different ways and our diversity is what makes America so strong. We are economically, geographically, racially, ethnically, and ideologically different from one another and we can either choose to let that diversity strengthen us or we can let it sort us into tiny subgroups that refuse to work together.”

Diversity is fine, Ms. Gingrich Cushman, but not when diversity results in stupidity.

america 15

america 16

“When we are ranting at each other – separated [into] our own corners, informed by our own news sources, and immersed in our own social media clusters – we cannot listen to each other and therefore we cannot solve anything.”

The only problem here, Ms. Gingrich Cushman, is you are assuming that the democrats really want to solve anything.

america 11

“Is political polarization dangerous to our country? My opinion is yes, there is too much polarization,” according to Ms. Gingrich Cushman.

I agree that political polarization is dangerous for our country…, but what is the alternative?

Are we supposed to just turn our backs while the radical left-wing whackos send our country into a state of chaos?

Think about it.

america 13

The only reason we’re even talking about political polarization is because conservatives all across our country decided to finally take a stand against all of this liberal craziness and elect Donald Trump.

And thank God we did.

Conservatives are being victimized by “political bigots” almost daily now.

Wait…, what?  “Political bigots?”

Yes…, “political bigots.”

We all tend to associate bigotry with racism or cultural differences.

But “bigotry” is defined as “the intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.”

And like I said, we see this intolerance, by “the left,” displayed constantly these days.

bigots 9

Hence, “political bigotry.”

bigots 1

According to Brie Stimson of Fox News, “A charity event planned in honor of an officer killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a country music bar in in Southern California has been postponed indefinitely — reportedly because a police chief [Thousand Oaks, CA, Police Chief Tim Hagel] didn’t want Republicans invited.”

Well isn’t he special?!

Isn’t he the enlightened one?!

Isn’t he the intolerant one?!

How rude!

What a B-I-G-O-T, BIGOT!

“The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.”

“Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total of 13 people and wounding about a dozen others.”

bigots 2

“Thousands of dollars had already been raised for fallen officers’ families, but the money is now being returned to donors because Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel reportedly withdrew the police department because Trump supporters would be speaking at the event.”

Where do these people come from, and who do they think they are?

He should resign his position as Thousand Oaks Police Chief and assume his position as the Chief of the liberal thought police!

bigots 11

“He basically said over and over in the conversation, ‘This is not Trump country, that slogan “Make America Great” is not favorable, popular, within 1,200 square miles, and that we don’t want Republicans here.’ ‘I could not believe it,’ Mike Randall, vice president of the Fallen Officers Foundation, said, according to FOX 11.”

“We don’t want Republicans here?!”

Seriously, Chief?

bigots 5

You do realize we live in America, don’t you?

You do realize that Donald Trump is the duly elected President of The United States…, and that California, your state, is one of The United States, don’t you?

You do realize this isn’t NAZI Germany, don’t you?

‘“The only thing,’ and I quote, ‘the only thing you [could have done to make] this worse, Mike, was to invite Dick Cheney and Sarah Huckabee Sanders,’ [the Chief said], and I went, Wow, are you kidding me?”

No…, he’s not kidding Ms. Stimson.

You know how I know he’s not kidding?

Because these fascist bigots have no sense of humor whatever.

bigots 3

bigots 10

“Both Democrats and Republicans were invited to the event. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s public safety liaison, Trump supporter Scott Baio, who attended Helus’ church, and Trump-supporting singer Joy Villa were all scheduled to attend.”

“The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department issued a statement, saying:

‘“The Blue Bowl event was represented as a charitable flag football tournament to raise funds for the family of Sergeant Ron Helus. An event that would honor Ron’s memory and provide support to his wife Karen and son Jordan. As the event began to materialize, we became concerned with the behavior of some of the organizers of the event. Although I believe the organizers had good intentions, the event was moving in a direction we no longer felt comfortable supporting.”

And when you say “we,” Chief, you really mean “you,” don’t you?

bigots 7

“Singer Villa called the chief’s response ‘disgusting.’”

‘“This is not OK. This is prejudice, hello?’ she [Villa] said. ‘You’re shutting down an event because of the way conservatives think, because I support the president? This is disgusting, I’m appalled, and in all my years being an out conservative, I’ve never seen something so despicable like this.’”

I’m sorry to say, Joy, this political bigotry is quickly becoming the new normal.

There is no middle ground anymore.

It’s truly “us” against “them” now.

And that’s fine…, just don’t pretend like it’s not.

WINNING!

Someone’s finally beginning to clean-up our oceans!  

So who’s finally taking the initiative to start cleaning up our oceans?

The United States?  I’ll let you in on a little secret here later.

Russia?

China?

England?

Japan?

Nope.

It’s a man from The Netherlands (also known as Holland).

The Netherlands?

cleanup 2

I can’t imagine that The Netherlands is responsible for even .000001 percent of the pollution in our oceans…, but yet they are the ones (the only ones right now) attempting to clean-up them up.

The Netherlands only has 17 million people in the entire country.  It’s known for its very liberal policies, although it is not a very diverse country, as over 85% of the population are Dutch/European.

AFP (French Press Agency), recently reported from Rotterdam, in The Netherlands, that, “A special ship designed to clean the oceans has harvested its first plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch since setting sail from San Francisco last month, its Dutch inventor said Wednesday.”

cleanup 1

Please refer to my prior blog, “What’s up with all of this garbage in the oceans?” from April 18, 2018, for more information relating to the “Great Pacific garbage patch.”

cleanup 3

“The project by The Ocean Cleanup, a Dutch non-profit group, involves a supply ship towing a floating boom that corrals marine plastic with the aim of cleaning half of the infamous patch within five years.”

I applaud the intentions and the effort here, but shouldn’t we attempt to attack the problem at its sources as well?

If we don’t confront those doing the polluting, and attempt to limit additional “new pollution,” it’s like buying new fly swatters, but leaving all of the doors and windows wide open to continually let more flies in.  We’ll never be able to stay ahead of the game…, or make any real difference.

Please refer to my earlier blog, “We’re all veterans of the liberal environmental ‘blame game.’ But what’s the real deal regarding pollution on our planet?” from September 11, 2019, for a better understanding of who the real polluters are.

Here’s the secret I was talking about earlier…, President Trump actually deserves some credit as well for taking action regarding the pollution of our oceans.

According to David Emery of Snopes.com, “[President] Trump signed, in October of 2018, bipartisan legislation aimed at reducing the amount of garbage (mainly plastic debris) littering the world’s oceans and threatening sea life.  Called the Save Our Seas Act of 2018 (S.3508), the bill was described by the activist group Ocean Conservancy as ‘a small but significant piece of legislation’ showing ‘leadership in the global fight to tackle the marine debris crisis.’”

Way to go, President Trump!

Raise your hand if you were aware of this.

Don’t worry…, mine’s not up either.

cleanup 5

“The act reauthorized the existing National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Program for another five years and called for more international cooperation in the effort to clean up the world’s oceans.”

Getting back to the efforts by The Netherlands, ‘“Today we announce that our cleaning system in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has been catching plastic for the first time,’ Boyan Slat, the 25-year-old Dutch CEO and founder of The Ocean Cleanup, told a press conference in Rotterdam.”

‘“It’s the first time actually anyone harvests plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.  So we think that we can actually clean the oceans.’”

“Slat came up with the idea seven years ago, and the system has been undergoing tests for the past year.”

“The ship finally sailed from San Francisco on September 9 for trials on cleaning the patch, a floating trash pile twice the size of France that swirls in the ocean halfway between California and Hawaii.”

“It [the ship] was towing a 2,000-foot-long boom device designed by Slat dubbed System 001, aimed at containing floating ocean plastic so it can be scooped up and recycled.”

Another article from AFP states, “Ocean plastic waste probably comes from ships, report says.”

“The study offers fresh evidence that the vast garbage patches floating in the middle of oceans, which have sparked much consumer hand-wringing in recent years, are less the product of people dumping single-use plastics in waterways or on land, than they are the result of merchant marine vessels tossing their waste overboard by the ton.”

“Three-quarters of the garbage appeared to originate from Asia, mostly China.”

cleanup 7

“Everyone talks about saving the oceans by stopping using plastic bags, straws and single use packaging. That’s important, but when we head out on the ocean, that’s not necessarily what we find.”

There are thousands of cargo ships dumping garbage into our oceans on a daily basis.

There are 46 different cruise lines operating around the globe, which have 314 cruise ships.  It is estimated that 26 million people travel aboard these ships every year.

cleanup 6

That’s a lot of people…, and a lot of garbage!

Our oceans are not liquid dumpsters!

cleanup 4

All of these countries need to stop signing these BS climate accord agreements and simply keep their garbage to themselves.

That would be a good start.
