C’mon New York Times!  You’re letting the news get in the way of the party line propaganda!

Gerren Keith Gaynor of Fox News reports that, “New York Times headline of Trump’s remarks on mass shootings ignites backlash.”

“A New York Times headline about President Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online– including some Democratic presidential candidates– and was subsequently changed late Monday.”

nyt 11

They changed their headline?

Wow!  That never happens.  That headline must have been pretty vile or grossly inaccurate.

What exactly was the headline?

“The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.”

Huh?

That was the headline they were forced to change?

That headline was completely accurate and unbiased.  That was exactly what occurred.  President Trump urged for unity against racism, denouncing hate and white supremacy groups.

And therein lies the problem.

How can the democrats’ fairy tale narrative of The President being a racist be true if he is reported as being against racism and denouncing hate and white supremacy groups?

C’mon New York Times!

Get with the program!

Did you forget you’re a propaganda rag that works in concert with the democrats?!

It seems that in a moment of weakness you actually reported “the news” there.

Shame on you!

“A photograph of Tuesday’s first edition was tweeted out by journalist Nate Silver Monday night and was quickly slammed by critics who accused The Gray Lady of inaccurately representing Trump’s comments.”

“The Gray Lady?”

More like “Gray Lady Down!”

“Some Twitter users threatened to cancel their subscriptions and urged others to do the same.”

Really?!

Did you know that “some twitter users” can be found to be doing virtually anything?

Anyway…, I digress.

‘“I canceled my subscription,’ tweeted author and CNN contributor Joan Walsh, adding, ‘I can’t keep rewarding such awful news judgement.’”

Let’s get one thing clear…, Joan Walsh is a liar.  She didn’t cancel anything.  And by “awful news judgment” she means diverting from the “fake news,” liberal narrative.  She is associated with CNN after all.

“Prominent Democrats in Washington also took aim at the Times, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”

‘“Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions,’ the freshman congresswoman tweeted.”

What?

Please explain to me how “white supremacy is aided” by reporting that The President is calling for unity against racism and white supremacy groups?

These democrats are sooo confused and sooo disingenuous that it is almost beyond commenting on.

“Presidential candidates, many of whom blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the El Paso, Texas, shooting that left at least 22 dead, also decried the headline.”

“New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted, ‘That’s not what happened.’”

No, Kirsten…, that IS exactly what happened.

‘“Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do,’ wrote Sen. Cory Booker.”

Thank you for your take on the matter “Spartacus!”

I believe we all can “do better…,” including you Cory.

“A photograph of the Times’ second edition of the front page hours later revealed that the headline had been changed to ‘Assailing Hate but Not Guns.’ Its website also showed a similar headline: ‘Trump Condemns Bigotry but Doesn’t Call for Major New Guns Laws.’”

nyt 6

I’m surprised these new headlines were even deemed acceptable.

There is a negative twist to them now, but there is still a bit of positivity there about The President.

“Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy acknowledged in a statement the original headline was problematic.”

“Problematic?”

The headline was “problematic,” but it wasn’t inaccurate, huh?

‘“The original headline was flawed and was changed for all editions of the paper following the first edition,’ the statement read. ‘The headline in question never appeared online, only in the first print edition.’”

The headline was “problematic” and “flawed,” but it wasn’t inaccurate?

Gee…, that reaction to the original headline would seem to be a metaphor for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the mainstream media!

“Problematic” and “flawed.”

President Trump’s response to the shootings in El Paso and Dayton is “spot on.”

President Trump’s response to the shootings in El Paso and Dayton is “spot on,” in my opinion.

And the democrats’ reaction to his remarks are what I would have expected as well…, exploitative, hypocritical and disingenuous.

Oh…, and foul-mouthed tweets contributed by democrat presidential candidates, Cory Booker, Tim Ryan and Beto O’Rourke.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “President Trump called Monday for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws — including so-called ‘red flag laws’ to take guns from those deemed a public risk — in the wake of back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 30 people dead.”

“In unequivocal terms, the president also condemned white supremacy, responding to reports that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto.”

Is it just me, or is “the media” always quick to pursue the racism angle when a white perpetrator or a conservative is involved, but completely the opposite when a non-white perpetrator or a liberal leaning individual is involved?

The Dayton shooter appears to be a liberal whacko…, but they’re keeping that on the “down low.”

Just sayin’.

‘“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,’ President Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. ‘These sinister ideologies must be defeated.  Hatred has no place in America.’”

Spoken like a true racist…, right Bernie?

response 1

“Senator Bernie Sanders, asked that ‘Trump please stop the racist anti-immigrant rhetoric. Stop the hatred in this country which is creating the kind of violence we see.’”

It seems to me that it is the democrats who are promoting divisiveness between the races, cultural groups, and socioeconomic groups for their own benefit.

This statement by Bernie Sanders is just another example of it.

response 9

Then we have democrat presidential candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, saying ‘“This is white nationalist terrorism.’”

‘“We need to acknowledge that this is a problem,’ Buttigieg said, claiming white nationalism has been ‘condoned at the highest levels’ in Washington.

Excuse me, Mayor Pete, but the only group in Washington that has a history of condoning white supremacy are the democrats.

My two best examples would be former Senator Robert Byrd and former Supreme Court Justice, Hugo Black.

Robert Byrd served in the Senate for 52 years, and was referred to as “her mentor” by Hillary Clinton!

response 7

response 8

response 3

According to Richard Stockton of ATI (All That’s Interesting website), “Byrd never once lost an election. Unfortunately, that last record includes the time he was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops of the KKK chapter he founded and built into a major force.”

By 1942, “Byrd had already recruited at least 150 of West Virginia’s power elite into a Klavern (a local KKK unit) with himself at its head. In 1952, with the winds of change already blowing, Byrd claimed in an interview to have quickly become disillusioned with the KKK, and to have dropped out by 1943. Even if that account is true, it doesn’t explain why, in 1946, Byrd wrote the following to the Grand Wizard: ‘The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.’”

Regarding former Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, “It was said of Black that in his youth he dressed in white robes and scared black folks, in his later years he dressed up in black robes and scared white folks.”

“Black started out as a country lawyer who defended a Klansman accused of killing a Catholic priest in what was an obvious hate crime. Soon after, Black joined the Alabama KKK.  Later, Black was elected to the Senate.”

“Black was an enthusiastic supporter of [President Franklin] Roosevelt, and in 1937, Black’s loyalty was rewarded with an appointment to the Supreme Court.”

“President Trump also tweeted about the possibility of ‘linking background check legislation to immigration reform.’ However, he said he is ‘open and ready to listen to ideas that will actually work.’”

Just remember, democrats are only interested in ideas that actually work on getting them re-elected, not ideas which would address an actual problem in our society.

shootings 1

“Among his list of proposals, Trump called for reforms to mental health laws ‘to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence,’ adding that we must ‘make sure those people not only get treatment but when necessary, involuntary confinement.’”

‘“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,’ Trump said.”

response 6

“The president also called for “cultural” changes, citing violent video games…, further, he called for policing the ‘dark recesses of the Internet ‘in a bid to catch mass murderers before they act.  We must also do a better job at identifying and acting on early warning signs,’ [President] Trump said. ‘We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace…It is too easy for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately,’ he added”

“Within minutes of completing his address, 2020 Democratic presidential candidates were slamming his remarks as insufficient.”

‘“The president is weak. And wrong. White supremacy is not a mental illness, and guns are a tool that white supremacists use to fulfill their hate,’ Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., tweeted.”

White supremacy may not be a mental illness, Cory, but liberalism sure appears to be!

response 5

“The attacks have revived the national debate over how to tackle gun violence, with many Democrats demanding the Senate return from recess to address the issue. A number of Democratic lawmakers and presidential candidates have also accused the president of fueling racial tensions with his rhetoric.”

Only when you are viewing his remarks through your own political and racially focused set of lenses.

Do we overreact to mass shootings?

I don’t think so.

I believe we react appropriately…, it’s the reaction of what we should do about these shootings is where some of us tend to overact, and even exploit the circumstances.

This last weekend we saw at least 30 people die to shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Yahoo Lifestyle  reporter, Elena Sheppard, reported that, “Famed astrophysicist and TV personality Neil deGrasse Tyson has shared his reaction to this weekend’s double mass shootings, and people are outraged.”

shootings 16

Tyson was “slammed” for his reaction to the mass shootings reactions.

“Tyson argued that more people are killed by the flu and car accidents than mass shootings, adding, ‘often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.’”

Tyson tweeted:

‘“In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.’

‘On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…’

‘500 to Medical errors’

‘300 to the Flu’

‘250 to Suicide’

‘200 to Car Accidents’

‘40 to Homicide via Handgun’

‘Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.’

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson)  August 4, 2019’”

shootings 1

In addition, every 48 hours in the U.S.:

About 3,200 people will die from cancer.

40 U.S. Veterans will commit suicide.

380 people will die from drug overdoses.

5,000 abortions will be performed.

6 women die from domestic violence.

69,000 report domestic abuse or violence.  (That’s only what’s reported)

11 people will die as a result of gang violence.

9 people will die from knife wounds.

500 people will die from Alzheimer’s.

There are 483 alcohol related deaths.

57,500 people come into our country illegally and undocumented.  (And that’s only the ones we know about! The actual number coming in could be twice as many!)

And remember, these numbers happen all over again EVERY 48 hours in our country.

The fact of the matter is that bad things happen to good people all of the time.

We just have to accept that fact and realize that no matter what we do, many of these occurrences are not preventable.

We can take reasonable steps to minimize them as much as possible, but we just can’t eliminate them from occurring at all.

We can make laws banning this and banning that, but people break laws all of the time.

Killing all of those people this past weekend was already against the law, wasn’t it?

shootings 12

shootings 2

I guess, in this case, I’m going to have to agree with Mr. Tyson.

It was a sad occurrence, no doubt…, but we have equally sad, and even sadder things occurring every day, over and over again, 24/7/365, that deserve more of our attention, and our outrage, as well.

I think we should start a democrat “bucket challenge!”

You know…, similar to the ice bucket challenge that was a big thing on social media the last couple of years.

53601157.jpg

By definition, “the ice bucket challenge is an activity involving the dumping of a bucket of ice and water over a person’s head, either by another person or self-administered, to promote awareness of a certain cause or issue.”

“The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same.”

“A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply with the challenge or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.”

For all of the democrats out there who think it’s okay to belittle and demonize our police officers, our immigration officers (ICE) and our border patrol officers, I challenge you to experience “the bucket!”

ice 1

ice 9

ice 8

If you’re a democrat who has been a driving force or an accomplice in the public humiliation of many of our police officers, who may have the toughest job in the world by the way…, I challenge you to walk down a street in your community while people are allowed to dump water over your head and laugh at you.

Since these officers were “dumped on” while doing their jobs, perhaps people should be allowed to walk into your offices and douse you while you’re in there doing whatever it is you do?

That sounds fair, doesn’t it?

I mean…, expressing your first amendment rights is expressing your first amendment rights…, right?

Right!

Right off the bat, let’s challenge Mayor Bill De Blasio, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the other three members of her “squad,” presidential candidate Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, along with all of the mayors who have declared their cities to be sanctuary cities, undermining the efforts of federal ICE officers.

Ya…, that would be a good start…, but just a start.

Is it really a “right” to have crappy health care?

I suppose technically it is.

It seems that “Medicare for all” is all the rage among democrats.

medicare 3

If you listen to the democrat presidential candidates, you would think that people without health care was a national crisis.

Have you ever seen anyone turned away from an emergency room, insurance or not?

In addition to that…, the truth is:

90% of Americans are covered by some sort of health care plan (Private plans, private plans through employers, VA, Medicare…, even Obamacare!

5% choose not to be covered by a health care plan.

That leaves only 5% that are truly without health care coverage.

Most of the democrat presidential candidates rally around the cry that, “Health care is a human right!”

The truth is the democrats are “fake news.”

medicare 7

The truth is the democrats don’t care about anyone’s rights.

The truth is the democrats really don’t care if you have health care coverage or not.

medicare 1

The truth is the democrats want government to take over the health care system because the truth is they want the government to take over everything!

So…, let’s get this straight.

In order to make sure that the 5% who don’t have coverage get coverage:

… the democrats want to destroy the current system that 90% of us are using?

…the democrats want the 2.7 million people who currently work in the insurance industry to lose their jobs?

…the democrats expect all of us, who do pay taxes, to pay considerably more taxes to fund their socialized and nationalized health care fiasco?

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo efficient and customer oriented?

medicare 4

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo cost effective?  We’ve all heard about the bargains the Pentagon has gotten on their $435 hammers and their $640 toilet seats!  Get ready for the $50 Q-tip!

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know are doing such a good job in regards to immigration laws, in regards to handling the abortion issue, in regards to funding social security, in regards to homelessness, in regards to city, state and federal debt, in regards to crime and violence, in regards to illegal drugs and drug abuse.  Well…, you get the idea.

medicare 6

medicare 9

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know will be abused and wasteful.  Can you imagine the current Medicare system abuse times ten?!

Times 20?!!

Times 30?!!!

President Trump believes, and I believe, that a more intelligent, “holistic” plan for improving the health care system would include adding a “safety net” system for the 5% without health care, laws making insurance processing easier, more transparent, and more user friendly, programs aimed at making medications more affordable, laws to address excessive medical liability awards, covering pre-existing conditions, and finding ways to make health insurance coverage more competitive…, as opposed to just lazily dumping the whole thing onto the government’s lap and living with whatever they deem is acceptable for us.

According to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN, “Medicare, which has been around since 1965, is the government-run health insurance program that covers all Americans 65 and older and is funded by taxpayers. A portion taken out of our paychecks for Social Security goes toward Medicare to cover most services like hospital stays and doctors’ visits.”

What did people do prior to 1965?  The American people didn’t pay any federal income taxes prior to 1913 either.  How did we and the country survive?  Seriously…, I’m asking?

“People on Medicare can also choose to get additional coverage from Medicare-approved private insurers to cover other services such as dental, vision and prescription drugs.”

“Our health care system could best be described as a hybrid. About half the money comes from the private sector: people who have private insurance through their employers or who are self-insured. The other half is from the public sector: federal, state and local governments paying into Medicare and Medicaid.”

Most proposed “Medicare for all” plans would provide fairly comprehensive coverage, as Medicare does now, all with no copays, premiums or deductibles, they say.

Herein lies the rub.

The democrats call it “free” health care with “no copays, premiums or deductibles,” but we all know nothing is “free.”

These politicians are so generous with OUR money!

I’m sure the increase in our taxes would more than equal our copays, premiums and deductibles, as we would not only be covering our own costs, but all of those who don’t pay any taxes as well.

medicare 2

As with most other democrat schemes, it’s a good deal for those accustomed to living off of government handouts, and that’s about it.

medicare 9

Of course, the extremely wealthy and most politicians would be exempt from this system, designed for the rest of us peons, just as in the case of Obamacare.

Why are about half of the American people willing to accept a crappy health care system, while the elites just go on living their elite lifestyles?

Because about half of us are either too ignorant to know any better, gullible enough to believe the socialist fairy tales they tell us, too lazy to care either way, or we’re originally from a country where we’re used to this type of treatment, so this is totally acceptable and familiar, and we’re just happy to be here.

medicare 10

It’s difficult combating the waves of liberal misinformation when the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” acts as a co-conspirator rather than a “watch dog” for the American people.

medicare 5

Remember…, stay thirsty my friends, but don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aide!

When will “Black” politicians stop hiding behind the color of their skin?

Over the weekend, President Trump tweeted out some criticisms of Rep. Elijah Cummings, who happens to be part African-American and a democrat from Maryland, who represents a district in Baltimore.

These tweets were a response to Cummings’ comments which were critical of the conditions at border processing centers. Cummings last week had questioned crowded border conditions and criticized the lack of basic humanitarian needs such as sanitation being met.

cummings 1

“Cummings sarcastically asked Kevin McAleenan, the acting head of Homeland Security, ‘You feel like you’re doing a great job, right?’ according to Sommer Brokaw and Allen Cone of UPI.  ‘What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower, come on man, what’s that about?  None of us would have our children in that position.  They are human beings.’”

cummings 3

What a pompous ass.  What a disingenuous, pompous ass.

Oh, oh…, I guess that makes me a racist…, because you can’t question the integrity of an African-American politician you know…, unless they happen to be conservative that is!

cummings 9

You say “None of us would have our children in that position.”  Have you taken a look around your district in the last twenty years Congressman Cummings?

cummings 13

Many children in your district live in conditions much worse that the conditions you dreamed up, regarding our border processing centers, Mr. Cummings.

Why haven’t these children, these U.S. citizens, which you represent in your district, gotten the same level of your concern as have these illegal immigrants halfway across the country?

‘“I want to concentrate on these children and I want to make sure that they are okay,’ he continued. ‘I said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s not the deed that you do to a child. It’s the memory.’”

Oh…, such eloquent words, Mr. Cummings.  You’re such a gifted orator!  Which one of your staffers fed you that line of crap?

“He added that the Trump administration was responsible for separating thousands of migrant children, some as young as 2, from their parents.”

‘“It is the Trump administration’s own policies that are causing these problems,’ he said. ‘They all increased the number of people being held and unnecessarily detained … The damage the Trump administration has inflicted and is continuing to inflict will affect these children for the rest of their lives.’”

cummings 6

No, it’s not the Trump Administration’s own policies, Mr. Cummings.  The Trump Administration is just following the laws established by you and your friend in Congress, Mr. Cummings.

If you and your friends in Congress had done its job anytime over the last twenty years or so, these situations at our southern border would not even be an issue now.

‘“I’m talking about human beings,’ Cummings said. ‘I’m not talking about people that come from, as The President said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings just trying to live a better life.’”

Oh, so none of these people come from your district in Baltimore, Mr. Cummings?

Sorry, but it was just too hard to let that one slip by!

People in your district aren’t “human beings?”

People in your district aren’t “trying to live a better life?”

And it was Senator Bernie Sanders who described your district as being akin to a “third world country.”

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “[President] Trump was heavily criticized over the weekend after he branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of Border Patrol officials at committee hearings — and described Cummings’ district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.’”

cummings 15

“Radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “President Trump is speaking the absolute truth about problems in the city of Baltimore under Democrat-led administrations.’”

‘“What he’s saying here is the absolute truth, but it’s not supposed to be said about any place where the Democrats are in charge,’ he said Monday on Fox & Friends.’”

‘“Cumming[s’] District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,’ Trump tweeted, before calling for an investigation into why Baltimore received so much federal funding.”

cummings 7

Ya…, let’s open up an investigation checking into what has happened to all of those hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore!

From what I’ve seen, Mr. Cummings seems to be a big fan of investigations!

“Limbaugh added, ‘It’s about time somebody pushed back against the human misery caused by Democrat leadership.’”

“Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, responded Sunday by declaring he has ‘no doubt that Trump is racist.’”

cummings 5

Really, Mr. Cummings?

Why can you be critical of him, and that’s not racist, but as soon he’s critical of you that’s considered racist?

Just sayin’.

This seems to be a typical case of someone being able to “dish it out,” but not being able to take it himself.

Remember…, you started this Mr. Cummings.

cummings 11

“Limbaugh continued by adding, ‘The Democrats get to claim they are compassionate and that they care, but they never do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives of their constituents. Their constituents are as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago.’”

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is of course co-conspirators in this “racist” charade which has been perpetrated on the American people.

cummings 12

Hopefully our African-American friends will increasingly wake up to this fact and run these frauds right out of town and right out of Congress!

Israel 1, “The (anti-America) Squad” 0.

Who are the religious bigots here?

Who are the racists here?

Who are the intolerant ones here?

jewish 6

It appears that three of the four “Squad” members would be the correct answer to these questions.

I have to give credit to Ayanna Pressley, the representative from Massachusetts, for breaking with her crew on this one.

jewish 4

In fact, according to Frank Miles of Fox News, “The resolution passed on a vote of 398-17.  Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., were among the 16 Democrats who voted against the resolution. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., was the only Republican to vote ‘no.’ Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., was one of five lawmakers who voted ‘present.’”

jewish 3

So “The Squad” consisted of 3 of the 17 who voted against the resolution, which was a vote against Israel on racially and religiously bigoted terms.

jewish 13

And those 17 were defeated 398-17!

Those 17 constitute a whopping 4% of Congress.

I would say we could consider a majority of “The Squad” to be a far, far, far left faction, and an especially racially bigoted group within the democrat party.

Yet “The Squad” appear to be the “faces” of the democrats lately, and the ones driving a radical democrat narrative.

“The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a bipartisan resolution Tuesday opposing an international effort to boycott Israel as Democrats try to tamp down increasingly heated political rhetoric over differences with the longtime U.S. ally.”

jewish 10

If you consider the political climate that we live in today, the fact that we can get anything done in a bipartisan fashion is extremely noteworthy, and worth highlighting.

If you are one of the few on the dissenting side of a vote like this (398-17), that is saying a lot!

That is saying that if you can’t support something like this…, you can’t or won’t support anything.

That is saying they (“The Squad” members plus 14) are so far out of the mainstream that they should be considered radical and ineffectual.

As our Jewish friends might say…, these “meshugenahs” and “schlemiels” (Crazy people and incompetent people) “hok a chainik” (talk too much, talk too much nonsense).

“Mazel tov!” (Good fortune to you!)

I’m sure you have a good idea what it means to be “patriotic,” but what about “Google?”

You know…, “Google,” the internet search engine that basically everyone on the planet uses.

The “Google” that claims it has no liberal tilt to it.

Okay…, well, let’s “Google” the word “patriotic.”

patriotic 7

If you “Google” the word “patriotic,” this is what you get:

pa·tri·ot·ic

/ˌpātrēˈädik/

adjective

Having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one’s country.

“Today’s game will be played before a fiercely patriotic crowd.”

synonyms: nationalist, nationalistic, loyalist, loyal; chauvinistic, jingoistic, jingo, flag-waving, isolationist, xenophobic

antonyms: traitorous

 

Hmmm.  Okay…, I was right there with ‘ya Google, until I got to the synonyms “chauvinistic,” “jingoistic,” “isolationist,” and “xenophobic.”

Not to mention that “flag-waving” appears to have taken on some kind of negative connotation.

“Synonyms” are supposed to be words that “mean the same” or “nearly the same,” right?

I do believe that “Google,” the company that claims it has no liberal tilt to it, is trying to change the meaning of the word “patriotic” right before our very eyes!

It would seem that being a patriot, according to Google, has now become something negative…, something undesirable.

Nike and Colin Kaepernick would definitely go along with this new meaning…, as would Facebook, Hollywood in general, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news, mainstream media,” most liberals, and most democrats everywhere.

So, “patriotic” means the same as “chauvinistic?”

chau·vin·is·tic

/ˌSHōvəˈnistik/

adjective

Feeling or displaying aggressive or exaggerated patriotism.

Displaying excessive or prejudiced support for one’s own cause, group, or sex.

 

“Aggressive patriotism?”

“Exaggerated patriotism?”

“Displaying excessive or prejudiced support?”

This is the start of equating “patriots” with racists.

 

Then we have “jingoistic.”

“Jingoistic?”

Never heard of it.

jin·go·is·tic

/ˈˌjiNGɡōˈistik/

adjectiveDEROGATORY

Characterized by extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy.

“jingoistic propaganda”

 

“Extreme patriotism?”

“Aggressive or warlike foreign policy?”

“Propaganda?”

This is the start of equating “patriots” with Nazis.

 

Next we have “xenophobic.”

This is also a term that what little known and little used up until the last year or so.

 

xen·o·pho·bic

/zenəˈfōbik,ˌzēnəˈfōbik/

adjective

Having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries.

“The xenophobic undertones of this argument.”

synonyms: racist, racialist, ethnocentric, ethnocentrist; nationalist, nationalistic, jingoistic, jingo, isolationist; prejudiced, intolerant, bigoted, parochial, insular

 

“Having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries?”

“Racist, ethnocentric, prejudiced, intolerant, bigoted?”

Do you see where they are going with all of this?

 

Mark my words…, before you know it, being patriotic will be akin to being in the Ku Klux Klan.

patriotic 6

Waving or displaying the American flag will be considered the same thing as wearing a red MAGA hat.

patriotic 5

If you remember, Google listed the only antonym for “patriotic” as “traitorous.”

Well, there you go Google.

patriotic 8

By your own definition…, if you’re labeling all of us red blooded, flag waving, national anthem singing Americans as “patriots,” then liberals would by choice be the opposite…, or “traitorous.”

Now that I’d tend to agree with!

USA! USA! USA!

Two ideas, regarding immigration problems, which make too much sense to ever happen!

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!

A couple politicians have actually been discovered using their heads and coming up with some creative ideas!

Imagine that?

This is the kind of stuff that could start giving politicians a good name!

The first idea was proposed by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

His idea is to use confiscated drug money to help build the wall on our southern border with Mexico…, since the Democrats in Congress can’t see fit to allocate any money for this endeavor, even though President Trump was elected amid cries at his rallies to “BUILD THAT WALL!”

ideas 8

Dominick Mastrangelo of The Washington Examiner reported that “Ted Cruz wants to use money from the ‘El Chapo’ drug empire to ‘build the wall!’”

ideas 1

“The reparations to the U.S. taxpayer are justified, prosecutors said, because Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman acquired his billions as part of his drug empire that directly led to the death of thousands of drug-addicted Americans and victims of violent drug-related crime.”

ideas 2

I would say that “reparations” by Guzman are not only justified…, they should be considered a small and required attempt at compensation for all of the suffering he has caused.

“Prosecutors stated Guzman can pay the sum because ‘criminal forfeiture is viewed as part of the sentencing process,’ according to Newsweek.”

“After a lengthy trial, Guzman was found guilty on multiple drug-related felonies and will likely face life in prison.”

Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama also deserves some credit for introducing legislation earlier in the year, “that would reserve up to $14 billion seized from ‘El Chapo’ for the construction project.”

‘“People across the United States are desperate for a sign that Washington is ready and willing to protect them from dangerous criminals and porous borders,’ Cruz wrote a month later in an op-ed for the Washington Post. ‘Congress has two clear mandates from the American people: secure the border and save money. So let’s build a wall, and make El Chapo pay for it.’”

Absolutely…, who could argue with that?

The second idea was proposed by Representative Lance Gooden from Texas.

ideas 3

His idea is to use DNA testing to aid border officials in determining whether children are really with their families, or being used by child traffickers to get across the border.

Brilliant!

Adam Shaw of Fox News reported that, “Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas., introduced the End Child Trafficking Now Act on Monday. The bill would implement DNA testing at the border, and punish those caught trying to cheat the system with up to 10 years in prison.”

I’d say 10 years would be a good start.

“The proposal comes in response to growing awareness of the fraudulent use of children by adult migrants to gain access to the U.S. The 1997 Flores court settlement limits how long children can be held in custody to just 20 days, meaning that adult migrants claiming to be family members will also be released into the homeland as their asylum cases are considered.”

ideas 4

‘“Unfortunately we see that all too often now … adults that are bringing children with them that are not their own to try and take advantage of what they perceive as a loophole in our law that would allow them to be released into the United States,’ Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan told the House Oversight Committee last week, as he described how a DNA test helped thwart one migrant who allegedly ‘bought’ a child in a bid to exploit loopholes.”

‘“We’ve had egregious cases, including a 51-year-old man who bought a six-month child for $80 in Guatemala and admitted that when confronted with a DNA test by a Homeland Security Investigations agent conducting a pilot at one of our border stations,’ he said.”

“He also testified about the problem of ‘child recycling’ that authorities were investigating, where children are used multiple times to get adults into the U.S.”

ideas 5

‘“There are one in five cases, according to ICE, of groups of people coming over with children, saying “these are our children” — when they say that they get preferential treatment through the asylum process — and then we have later found out they are not even related, so the DNA testing helps us to determine if they’re telling the truth or not,’ Gooden told Fox News.”

“Tests would consist of mouth swabs similar to those already in use by the State Department. The agency says that such tests are 99.5 percent accurate.”

Representative Gooden added, “I would be shocked to hear of anyone being opposed to preventing child trafficking, but I’ve been shocked before.”

Yes…, I’m afraid we’re all getting used to being “shocked” by how low and by how political some of our democrat friend will stoop.

You have to wonder sometimes if these loopholes are really loopholes, or if these ways of beating the system were intentionally built into the law?

Some people might be surprised by that accusation, but the law is there to be changed and corrected at any time, and Congress is refusing to do so.

Doesn’t their inaction indicate that they are okay with what’s happening with these children at the border?

What else could their inaction indicate?

ideas 6

Like I said in the beginning…, these are two ideas which make way too much sense to ever happen.
