The Nazi Takeover

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 6, 2021 by andelino

The Nazi Democrat Party is trying it’s best to take over the country. President Trump is the first president to actually do what he said he was going to do for us after winning an election. He actually did something that actually made our lives better. Unlike the past presidents since our last great president, Ronald Reagan, all of them including the last Republican president, George Bush, who was a weak president as far as Conservative values were concerned, along with the Obama transformation years, President Trump actually kept his word. President Trump didn’t lie to get into office. He didn’t promise the public what he thought they wanted to hear just to get elected.

President Trump actually had a vision of making America great again, like it’s glory years. He didn’t keep just one promise, but most. The only ones that weren’t realized as of yet, was because of the Nazi Democrats running interference and constantly assaulting the office with false charges just to slow down the great progress. But even with all the Nazi Democrat’s traitorous acts, he still got many things done, and made America more prosperous and safer, for all Americans, no matter your race, religion or economic status.

Unlike the Nazi Democrats which only did things that made their elected officials better off financially or by gaining more power over the average American citizen. The Nazi Democrats are simply all about control over the public, Mainly by promoting a communistic or socialistic agenda. They’re all about power and control and nothing to do about making our lives any better. They destroy our culture, or heritage and our social fabric, piece by piece.

If you are old enough to remember WWII, then you understand the dangers of a Socialist or Communist government. You would understand how the actions the Nazi Democrats have used are the same tactics to take over a country, piece by piece. The Nazi Democrat Party likes to throw around the name of Hitler and comparing everyone that disagrees with anything they say to Hitler. It’s ironic since the Nazi Democrats are the ones that truly employ Hitler’s plan for the takeover of a country to enslave its citizens.

Yes, the Nazi Democrat Party is also the party of slavery. They fought to keep blacks as slaves while Republicans fought to free the slaves. It’s a quandary for most people as to why so many blacks still support the party that continues to put the chains back on them as Joe Biden so eloquently said in one of his speeches. He was talking about the Nazi Democrats in reality.  Add to that the Nazi Democrats have murdered millions of babies at their satanic false altar of worship, then you have such a strong parallel to the actions of Hitler. The Nazi Democrat Party is responsible for the slaughter of millions of infants and they won’t be happy until they can kill millions more in the killing fields of their planned parenthood abortion baby killing mills.

The scope of Hitler’s master plan is too lengthy to cover in this post, so we will only highlight the most dangerous ones. They are as follows:

  • Take Control Of The Schools – To Propagandize Young Minds From The Start
  • Take Control Of The Churches – Try To Control What A Pastor Can Or Cannot Teach
  • Gun Control – They’ve Been Trying To Take Guns Away For Decades – An Unarmed Populace Is Easier To Take Over
  • Cultural And Scientific Cleansing Was Carried Out – Nazis Deemed Everything That Didn’t Serve The Nazi Machine, Had To Disappear.

The ethnic cleansing is in full swing today by the Nazi Democrat Party. In case anyone hasn’t noticed the Nazi Democrats have focused on Christians, Jews and white people in an attempt to remove their influence on society. The Nazi Democrat Party is doing just what Hitler did and not enough people see it because the further we get in time from WWII, the fewer people are around that witnessed the horrors of the Nazis first hand, or were taught about it in school.

Since the Nazi Democrat Party has taken over the schools in America, they have rewritten the history books with propaganda to support their Nazi ambitions. They leave out the facts and truths of moments in history and replace them with lies and falsehoods and teach it to our kids. The Nazi Democrat Party, just as Hitler’s Nazi party before them, use children as a tool, and take advantage of them to mold them into good little slaves for the Nazi Democrat Party. Only time will tell if the America I grew up in, still has what it takes to rise to the occasion when needed. And to put down this hostile takeover by a political group that seeks to dominate the entire nation and make it a nation of slaves to the hybrid socialist Nazi government.

Every war throughout history has depended on resources and supplies. All of that costs money, and lots of it. The country with the finances to run their military, to buy the guns, ships, planes, trucks, tanks, bombs, missiles, etc, controls their destiny. Then you have to be able to buy the things that make them work, like the ammo, gas, oil, tires and so forth. Whether it’s a physical war with conventional weaponry and machinery, or if it’s a legal war, or a war of propaganda to influence and control the thinking of the nation, it still takes money.

The Nazi Democrat Party has followed in Hitler’s footsteps, following his evil plan closely when Barack Hussein Obama gained power in America. He didn’t take control with military might. He took control with his band of thugs and evil supporters that comprised the Nazi Democrat Party. There were several key events that occurred before that could happen. First Barack Obama had to make people think he was looking out for their best interest, through lies and deceit, which he did through a massive propaganda war unleashed on the unsuspecting public.

Most of the American population had no idea of what Obama was really all about. He talked a good game, and was a great speaker and motivator. He worked people into a euphoric frenzy to the point they were on board for all the false promises he offered them. He did this with the help of the Nazi Democrat Party. Obama understood one thing for certain, if you tell a lie to the people long enough, many will start to believe it. As did the vast majority of the American people. The Nazi Democrat Party in the US as well as the main stream media services know that all too well and have used the tactic for decades.

After Barack Obama gained political power, the public realized the horrible life changing mistake they made by trusting and believing in his promises. They found out they voted in a person who wasn’t all about making their lives and their country a better place. They realized too late that they voted in a mad man, an evil individual that would begin the Nazi transformation. The American people went from free and proud people, to prisoners and slaves to an evil dictator. Simply expressing a view that the Nazi Democrat Party didn’t allow, would bring about swift and decisive actions that would destroy their lives, from personal attacks to destruction of their homes or businesses to beatings or being put to death. Sometimes the offending American citizen that uttered the words the Nazi party found offensive, would just simply disappear, never to be heard from again.

Barack Obama accomplished this by several key acts that swiftly moved him into the all powerful dictator role over the American people.

  • Take Over The Schools
  • Abolish The Church
  • Gun Control Was Implemented – An Unarmed Populace Is Easier To Take Over
  • Many politically-suspect and civil servants were dismissed.
  • Cultural And Scientific Cleansing Was Carried Out – Nazis Deemed Everything That Didn’t Serve The Nazi Ambitions, Had To Disappear.

Sounds too eerily like Adolph Hitler and the Nazi machine of WWII.

Is Obama Copying Adolph Hitler?

Happy Presidents’ Day!

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on February 15, 2021 by andelino

Presidents’ Day was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington’s birthday. The shift from Washington’s birthday to Presidents’ Day began in the late 1960s when Congress passed the “Uniform Monday Holiday Act”, which officially moved the holiday to the third Monday in February.

Few things genuinely annoyed President Ronald Reagan. One of them was criticism of his wife, Nancy; another was men telling off-color jokes when a woman was present. He hated being saddled with a schedule so crowded that he ended up running late and making people wait for him. He detested missing dessert.

But during his White House years, nothing seemed to irritate him as much as when people said he had “become” president. Whenever he heard that, he always interrupted the speaker to firmly say: “No, I didn’t become president. I was elected to the job, and it’s only temporary. In some countries, a person becomes a king or queen, but not here.”

That seems an especially timely message as we celebrate Presidents Day.

Originally created 135 years ago to commemorate George Washington, Presidents Day was modified in 1971 to include recognition of Abraham Lincoln and be part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which would give government workers a three-day weekend. Because both Washington and Lincoln were born in February, it was decided that the holiday should be on the third Monday in February every year.

Washington and Lincoln were not the only presidents with February birthdays. There were two others, but only one in the 20th century. The nation’s ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who served in office a mere 31 days, was also born in February (1773).

Perhaps the February-born president with the greatest modern-day impact was Reagan. He entered the world on February 6, 1911, and after a successful career as a radio broadcaster, movie star, and governor of California, would eventually be admiringly and rightfully described as “transformational” by no less a Democratic icon than President Barack Obama.

And indeed, that he was.

As proud as Reagan was of being twice chosen by his fellow citizens, he never felt he was entitled to the presidency. He was not intimidated by the role, but truth to tell, seemed a bit in awe of it. Every once in a while, it showed. I remember one day after a photo session in the Oval Office, he was standing at the Resolute Desk and looking out the windows onto the South Lawn of the White House.

He had a distant stare and seemed a million miles away. I asked him if everything was all right. He snapped back and said: “Oh, yes. For some reason, I was just thinking about some of the other fellas who have been in this office and hope that I’m worthy of it.”

On his last day as chief White House spokesman, Larry Speakes came to say goodbye and told Reagan that he never thought a kid from a small town in Mississippi would ever be in the Oval Office talking to the president of the United States, to which Reagan replied: “Imagine how a kid from a small town in Illinois feels.”

While he may not have felt destined or chosen by some higher power to serve as president, Reagan wanted the job because he cared deeply about America. He thought he had something to contribute to the country. Even when polls showed him comfortably ahead in both 1980 and 1984, he worked hard as a candidate, crisscrossing the country, listening to voters and speaking about what he wanted to accomplish. It never occurred to him to take anything for granted. He had the greatest respect for our democratic process and viewed it as his responsibility as a candidate to not only debate his opponent (more than once) but also to appear before the voters.

And when he did, Reagan’s rallies were neither a Festivus-esque airing of grievances against political opponents nor an attack on long-standing pillars of democracy. Rather, Reagan’s campaign events were uplifting celebrations of the unique greatness of America and offered an optimistic vision of what lay ahead. He spoke clearly and passionately about the country he envisioned, a shining city on a hill, and how he wanted to get there.

Reagan never mocked or attacked those who disagreed with him, nor did he curse. In 1984, when he was seeking a second term, Reagan did not take credit for what had been accomplished but instead praised the American people. Reagan’s rallies left voters inspired and hopeful, not angry or blaming.

Clearly, times have changed. As a country, we have moved on. Whether to a better place or not is an open question. As we mark Presidents Day and think of the people who have served, are serving, and those who may one day serve, it is worth remembering Ronald Reagan and how he viewed that hallowed office.

If you are one of the 80 Million plus Deplorables “Happy Fraud-In-Chief Day.”

If you feel disappointed, frustrated, or defeated by the way things seem to be going in our country, in honor of #throwbacktuesday, here is Clay Travis stunning CNN hosts when he says he believes in only two things completely: “The First Amendment and Boobs.”

This video will not only bring you hope and inspiration, but also the courage to keep going in the face of difficulties. As the popular saying goes, “it’s always darkest before the dawn” and nothing brings us more joy than overcoming difficulties together.

“We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.”  – George Washington

It was obvious from the beginning of President Trump’s term that those on the Left “hated him more than they loved their Country.”

I considered President Donald Trump to be a very good president on a level similar to former President Ronald Reagan. It is now evident that President Donald Trump “exceeded” Ronald Reagan in all the good that he accomplished for the United States of America.

There is also one other thing that President Donald Trump exposed. Over the last four years he exposed the tremendous “hatred” that many people in the Democrat Party have for President Donald Trump. He exposed the Democrat Party’s plans for “Socialism and Communism.”

He also exposed the massive “voter fraud” caused by the Democrat Party. At the very least the citizens of the United States have been warned, that a lot of these Democrats need to be “removed” from office, or the Democrat Party will destroy the “freedom and liberties” of the United States.

AOC Hates Washington

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 31, 2021 by andelino

In a shocking move House Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has filed “impeachment articles” against George Washington, the first president of the United States and “Revolutionary War” hero, on grounds of “blatant racism and inciting violence” along the eastern seaboard of the United States during the late 18th century.

“It doesn’t matter how long ago it was, what matters is that we send a very clear message regarding white supremacy and causing violence as President of the United States. It’s not acceptable and George Washington should be held accountable,” stated AOC on her Twitter account.

After former president Donald Trump has had his “second“ impeachment articles filed against him for “erection fraud,” it seems that Pandora’s box has been opened as a slew of other motions that were once seen as unthinkable are now becoming a terrifying reality, plunging modern-day lawmakers into darkness.

Alcohol infused Nancy Pelosi is expected to make a proposal that would define photo shopping “disagreeable memes” that satirize left-wing political figures as “hate speech and virtual terrorism.”

Even more surprising was the sudden “vanishing” of thousands of social media accounts after they “poured” in on AOC’s statements to “decry” the impeachment of George Washington.

According to one observer who watched the profiles of AOC critics disappear from existence in real time, “users are no longer being silenced or censored but outright erased, as if they are being tossed into a virtual oven.”

In the opinion of Liberals and Democrats all previous Presidents should be impeached (except Democrats) because they worked for the most “racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc.-phobic, downright evil country in history.”

Vice Presidents (except Democrats) should also be impeached since they “aided and abetted” the Presidents. In fact, everyone (except Democrats) should be impeached, since they probably voted for those “impeachables.”

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi further announced to “impeach” President Reagan, as soon as the Ventura County Health Department signs the order to “exhume” his body.

Mrs. Reagan touches the coffin of her husband during his state funeral on Capitol Hill on June 9, 2004. Ronald Reagan died after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Don’t Laugh. There is legal precedence for this.

On September 3, 1658, Oliver Cromwell drew his last breath, bringing an end to his reign as “Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland.” His enemies weren’t going to let something like Cromwell’s death keep them from getting their revenge.

That’s why, years after his death, Oliver Cromwell’s body was pulled out of his grave to stand trial. Being understandably mute in his defense, Cromwell was found guilty and sentenced to the traditional punishment for traitors to the glorious Crown.

Impeachments of any kind will continue until Republican’s and White Supremacist’s  morals improve.

The Executive Purge List.

America’s Crossroad

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on November 17, 2020 by andelino

Considering the state of conservatism in national politics today reminds me of one of an old “anti-war anthem” from yesterday. 

The rioting and protests in many U.S. cities today are a direct result of cultural changes that began in American college campuses in the 1930s. Although it sounds like a conspiracy theory, the teachings of these Marxists slowly permeated Western culture over decades to break down order.

Order, above all else, is what conservatives believe in. For example, knowledge is necessary to live a rational life. Contrast that with the subjective view that there are no standards of truth beyond personal feelings or thoughts, which holds true for tomorrow’s leaders.

This is where decades of Marxist inoculations by people like Antonio Gramsci, Georg Lukács, Theodor Adorno, Max Horkmeir and Herbert Marcuse left U.S. college educators.

By the way, the aforementioned “scholars” drew their conclusions without data or applying their models to the Soviet Union or China.

Conservatism’s latest stand was with the 2000 presidential election when Pat Buchanan ran on the Reform Party ticket. He ran as a faith-based, pro-life, pro-family platform. Buchanan opposed the North American Free Trade Agreement, the World Trade Organization, illegal immigration and foreign entanglements.

The party had not taken a position on abortion and this led several who followed Ross Perot to the party in 1996 to withdraw.

Donald Trump also ran for the Reform nomination, at least for a few weeks, in 2000. Candidate Trump labeled himself “very conservative,” but supported universal healthcare and suing alcohol corporations and tobacco corporations.

Trump may call himself a conservative, but what has he attempted to conserve in the past four years?

Historians point to 1964 as the beginning of the modern conservative movement. Sen. Barry Goldwater’s victory over Gov. Nelson Rockefeller for the GOP presidential nomination spelled doom for Republicans that year, but it allowed libertarians a voice at the table.

Two speeches laid the cornerstone of the movement. Both cited the religious faith of conservatism’s followers, order and limited government.

The most often quoted quirk from the acceptance is, “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!” Considering Goldwater’s reference to atomic warfare during the campaign, it is easy to see why that scared people.

Had the country employed Goldwater’s next line, many of today’s problems may have been different. “And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!”

Goldwater’s speechwriter, Ronald Reagan, delivered possibly the strongest speech of the campaign on Oct. 27, 1964, in Los Angeles. “…You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well, I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down: up man’s old — old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism,” he said at one point.

Democrats “have voices that say, ‘The cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism.’ Another voice says, ‘The profit motive has become outmoded. It must be replaced by the incentives of the welfare state.’ Or, ‘Our traditional system of individual freedom is incapable of solving the complex problems of the 20th century.’ Sen. J. William Fulbright has said at Stanford University that the Constitution is outmoded. He referred to the president as ‘our moral teacher and our leader,’ and he says he is ‘hobbled in his task by the restrictions of power imposed on him by this antiquated document.’ He must ‘be freed,’ so that he ‘can do for us’ what he knows ‘is best.’ And Sen. Joseph Clark of Pennsylvania, another articulate spokesman, defines liberalism as ‘meeting the material needs of the masses through the full power of centralized government.’”

Fifty-six years later it is clear to see which side is winning.

Having lived through the Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama presidencies, we have come to the realization that nothing good ever comes from a Democrat President.

Biden is a walking disaster and would be worse than Obama if that’s possible. Biden will be just one more jackass in the long line of jackasses post-JFK. The radical Democrats do not solve problems, they create problems and then tell you they will “solve” the problem that they created “IF” you vote for them.

You are seeing this right now as Biden claims he will create jobs for the American people, “Build Back Better”, after the Democrats and their lockdowns destroyed Trump’s economy.  Luckily for us, we the people see through this and realize the Democrats will say and do anything to regain power and once they achieve it, they won’t let go.

Anyone who criticizes a future Democrat President will be a “racist” or a “conspiracy theorist” or a “sexist bigot”. Any future Republican President will be a “racist” or the “election was stolen” or “white nationalist”.

The sides are chosen and the dye cast. No choice has ever been clearer. Election 2020 pits two diametrically opposed forms of government and economic systems against each other. On the one hand we have our “republican form of government”, where all power belongs to the people. It is driven by its economic engine, “Capitalism” with its free markets and individual ownership of property.

The centerpiece of our Republic, our Constitution, limits the reach of government and codifies that our rights are God given and therefore, unalienable. These rights are ours from the moment of our conception and cannot be infringed by government. This choice is championed by our President.

On the other hand, we have “Marxism”, which is represented by Joe Biden. Marxism seeks to transform the political, economic, and social structures of capitalism into a socialist society and ultimately into communism. In Marxism, all power resides in the state.

To accomplish his promised transformation, Biden and the Democrats must, whether by coercion and/or force, strip power from the people and transfer it to the state of Marxists. Marxists rule, they do not govern. Not surprisingly, Marxism, socialism and communism have left a legacy of death and destruction everywhere they have been tried.

If you doubt my description of where the party of pessimism, death, and destruction stands, you have not been paying attention. Joe Biden and the Democrats have supported, by acclamation or affirmation, lockdowns, riots, looting, closing of churches, destruction of the nuclear family, defunding the police, an end to freedom of speech, assembly and religion, abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, the demonization of an entire race of people and the use of street thugs to forcibly intimidate and silence any opposition.

So far, decent Americans have, for the most part, silently surrendered their sovereignty to Democrat politicians and government officials in the name of public health and social justice. If we continue to do so, the Democrats will win. Their promised transformation will lead to a new normal that will not seem normal to many of us.

If we hope to preserve our way of life, we must find our courage and demand a return to our constitutional moorings and way of life. To summon the strength to do so, perhaps we need to realize that, at its core, this is an attack on our parents, grandparents, and children. Let us, therefore, look to each of them for strength.

In drawing strength from our past, let us remember the lives and legacy of those in our families who came before us. Unlike the false narrative of white privilege, my grandparents, like so many others, risked everything to come to America to live in freedom. They left everything behind but a deep abiding faith in God and endured sickness, far beyond Covid, famine, prejudice, deadly cold, disease, poverty and more to forge a great nation.

They loved this country and were proud to be Americans. Despite these and other hardships they remained optimistic and proud and carried that pride of country into battles for independence, to unite our nation and free the slaves, to liberate nations from Nazism, Marxism, Communism, and Islamic Jihad.

They proudly passed the torch of freedom on to their children, my parents, and went to their graves in peace knowing they has preserved the American Dream for their children and grandchildren.

My parents and grandparents are/were brave, patriotic people to whom the thought of donning a mask and cowering in fear from a mutation of the common cold and surrendering the American Dream to the dictates of a governor or other government official would have been unthinkable.

They would be embarrassed to know that their children and grandchildren are so frightened by a flu like virus that we are willingly and sheepishly surrendering the legacy they fought for and preserved for us and generations yet to come.

If we believe in honoring the lives of those we loved, who sacrificed so much for us, then we must get off our knees, stiffen our spines, throw away our masks and speak out loudly and clearly.

In addition to drawing strength from our past, we can draw strength from our future by remembering our role as protectors of our children. Do we want our children to inherit the America our grandparents and parents left for us or the one we are forging now? Isn’t it past time we protect our children from the death cult of Democrat politicians and government officials?

Since March, we have shamefully allowed these politicians and officials to abuse our children by terrifying them with masks, lockdowns, riots, and looting’s. We have allowed these politicians to shatter our children’s sense of safety and security and deny them their loved ones, friends, proms, school, activities, and all that makes childhood special.

Our children, with our implicit consent, are being abused to keep panic and chaos alive until the election because Democrats hope that fearful people will vote for their transformation. If President Trump loses, we will not get another chance.

Despite the silence of the decent folks, my faith informs me that most of us are taking note of who is slandering our parents and grandparents and abusing our children. It is my sense that decent folks, who may be too fearful to act now, will settle the score on Election Day.

The abuse we are enduring at the hands of home-grown despots has worn our patience thin and is beginning to rouse our inner strength, pride, and heroism. We will take the fight to these enemies of our Constitution, not on land, air, or sea but at the ballot box.

After victory on 11/3 for President Trump and all Republican candidates, let us continue the fight on social media, in classrooms, workplaces, and houses of worship across our great land and destroy the wicked ideology known as Marxism, once and for all.

It’s up to us now. Wake up. Speak up as if your life depends on it because it does.

The Best Is Yet To Come

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on February 23, 2020 by andelino

Reagan’s sentiment is illustrated quite clearly in the rabid, mouth-foaming, dystopian predictions they issued prior to Trump’s election, and even afterward.

This is probably why the mainstream didn’t air much of Trump’s Davos speech that highlighted the growth of the stock market, personal retirement accounts, and jobs, especially among blue-collar workers and minorities. Oh my! They simply can’t show a Republican improving the lives of their constituents to a greater degree than Democrats have in most people’s lifetimes.

One day after Trump’s election, Nobel prize recipient economist extraordinaire and Trump-hater Paul Krugman declared boldly about The Donald’s victory over Hillary, “it is a regime that will be ignorant of economic policy and hostile to any effort to make it work. We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight.  A terrible thing has just happened.” Mr. Krugman kept predicting doom during trump’s first year, then shut-up after he noticed the image in the mirror staring back looking quite foolish.  Maybe Paul Krugman should return his Nobel prize in ECONOMICS or stow it away in a drawer until he apologizes to the American people for his little oopsie.

Krugman won’t have to worry though since the reliably leftist media will never ask him something like, “Mr. Krugman, your dire prognostication of a trump presidency destroying the economy is completely at odds with a stock market that’s increased 50% since he took office.  Can you explain how you got it so wrong?”  You would sooner see Elvis having coffee at your local Starbucks reading Time Magazine with Hillary on the cover and singing a line from Jailhouse Rock.

The comments of Simon Johnson, an esteemed economics professor at MIT, were so contradictory to reality that it left parents questioning the decision to send their children to the vaunted institution after he said a trump win would “likely cause the stock market to crash and plunge the world into recession.” I would bet a grand he asked the whiz kids in the engineering department if that forget-everything-you-just-heard-pen that Will Smith employed in “Men in Black” was real, and if so, could he borrow it to erase his silly prophecies from the memories of those who heard them.

Nancy Pelosi, drawing on her preeminent understanding of economics, warned the country, “Trump’s policies would cause Armageddon for family finances, the American economy, and the stock market.” Pelosi further demonstrated how out of touch she is in her Pacific Heights mansion when she said of the GOP tax cuts for the American workers, “$1000 bonuses are crumbs.”  Her idea of advocating for the financial health of her constituents is to burden them with the cost of free health care for illegal aliens.  I think she used the Men in Black pen on the voters in California to get reelected. What other logical explanation could there be than collective masochism of her subjects?

While economists were busy emphatically predicting Donald Trump would be a dark cloud over our economy,  the seeds of success were being sown in the form of regulatory rollback, tax-slashing for corporations and individuals and an overall pro-growth agenda.  The mainstream media refuses to talk about the fruit born of those early actions, and so do the economists who were as wrong about a Trump-caused financial implosion as Marshall Applewhite of Heaven’s Gate was about catching a ride on the UFO waiting for them in the vapor trail of the comet, Hale-bop.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

A vast improvement
Liberals hate Trump because he’s so much better than them
Democrats are trying to impeach President Trump, wayward voters, and democracy

Moral Equivalency

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 1, 2020 by andelino

Chicago archbishop Blase Cupich has once again downplayed the centrality of “abortion” as moral and political issue, insisting it must be seen as just one element of “a consistent ethic of life.”

In an op-ed in “Chicago Catholic”, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Cardinal Cupich repeated arguments against “prioritizing” the abortion issue when considering “how our faith should inform our politics and our voting decisions.”

The cardinal faced off against leaders of the U.S. bishops conference who insisted that the faithful must understand that abortion is the “preeminent priority” when decided on whom to vote for. Having lost that battle, the cardinal wrote his “own op-ed” to keep pushing the idea that “abortion is no worse than any other social issue.”

On average, over 2,700 unborn children are “executed” in the womb every day in the United States. One can only wonder what Cardinal Cupich would say if 2,700 migrants were rounded up and “killed” on a daily basis. Would this become a “preeminent issue” or would he insist that it must be “contextualized and balanced” against other social issues?

To back up his argument, Cardinal Cupich cited a former archbishop of Chicago, the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who is credited with creating the “seamless garment” moral theory, which approached all social evils as part of a “unitary whole” rather than addressing them individually.

A consistent ethic of life “joins the humanity of the unborn infant and the humanity of the hungry; it calls for positive legal action to prevent the killing of the unborn or the aged and positive societal action to provide shelter for the homeless and education for the illiterate,” Bernardin wrote in 1984.

Bernardin argued that his approach “will not erode our crucial public opposition to the direction of the arms race; neither will it smother our persistent and necessary public opposition to abortion,” but in point of fact, that is exactly what happened.

By introducing a series of elements that could not garner unanimous support, purveyors of this approach “debilitated” the Catholic pro-life effort in the United States by “splintering” the movement into factions. Those who had been united in their monolithic opposition to the “evil of abortion” found themselves divided on other issues such as “capital punishment, healthcare, welfare, gun control, national defense and the minimum wage.”

Although couched in “moral” terms, Cardinal Bernardin’s theory was essentially political. He was a Democrat at a time when his party had moved to embrace “abortion on demand” while then-President Ronald Reagan had adopted an uncompromising “pro-life stance in defense of the unborn.” Only by extending the definition of what it meant to be “pro-life” could Bernardin defend the Democratic platform as a viable “moral option” for serious Catholics.

The new standard-bearer for the “seamless garment” approach to life is Bernardin’s successor as archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Cupich, another self-serving “toady” for the Democratic Party.

In a signed 2015 op-ed in the Chicago Tribune, Archbishop Cupich listed a series of “social ills” that people should find just as “loathsome” as ripping apart “unborn children and selling their organs.”

“As appalling as it is to speak freely of crushing a child’s skull to preserve valuable body parts, we should be no less appalled by the indifference toward the thousands of people who die daily for lack of decent medical care; who are denied rights by a broken immigration system and by racism; who suffer in hunger, joblessness and want; who pay the price of violence in gun-saturated neighborhoods; or who are executed by the state in the name of justice,” Cardinal Cupich wrote.

By insisting on the “moral equivalency” of many different societal problems, Cupich reduced the heinous offense of “slaughtering the unborn and trading in their body parts” to just another social ill, no worse than “unemployment or a broken immigration system.”

The archbishop of Philadelphia, Charles J. Chaput, was quick to offer “fraternal” correction to his “misguided” brother bishop, penning his own essay titled “There Is No Equivalence.”

“Attempts to equate the intentional taking of human life through abortion with other social justice issues, such as poverty, racism, and unemployment, are wrongheaded and deceptive. The deliberate killing of innocent life is a uniquely wicked act. No amount of contextualizing or deflecting our attention to other issues can obscure that,” Chaput wrote.

Nearly all Catholic dioceses in the United States, including his own, spend far more time and talent on providing “social services” to the poor rather than on “opposing” abortion, Chaput noted, yet the fact remains that “children need to survive the womb before they can have needs like food, shelter, immigration counseling and good health care.”

“Humanity’s priority right – the one that under-girds all other rights – is the right to life, and being ‘right’ on other matters of social justice can never excuse a wrong choice regarding direct attacks on innocent human life,” Chaput argued.

As Archbishop Joseph Naumann, chairman of the “U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities” stated in 2017, abortion is the great “moral crisis of our time,” overshadowing “immigration, health care and capital punishment.”

 While many other “moral” issues merit attention from the bishops, Naumann said, it would be a mistake to “treat” them as if they had the same weight, noting that the “vast majority of bishops” understand that abortion is the preeminent “moral crisis” of our time.

In an interview with an Italian-language Jesuit journal, Pope Francis says the Catholic Church has grown “obsessed” with the issues of “abortion, gay marriage and contraception.” In an effort to redirect the church’s focus, he has decided not to speak publicly about these issues, he adds.

As reported by the New York Times, the pope told La Civiltà Cattolica: “It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently. We have to find a new balance, otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.”

But this does not mean that the pope’s views on these issues, or the Catholic Church’s teachings, are changing. The Catholic Church’s positions against “gay marriage, abortion and contraception” are still clear to him as “a son of the Catholic Cult.”

Stages of Denial

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 25, 2019 by andelino

I always start with #5 and then work backwards until I become totally defiant.

This list has been shortened for brevity. In real life, each of these statements ends with “Stop spreading conspiracy theories, you racist nut.”

As of this writing, Hunter Biden is “resigning” from the board of the Chinese company, Barack Obama is in “hiding” to avoid unnerving questions, and Joe Biden himself is calling for Trump’s “impeachment” and uses big words about patriotism, democracy, and the Constitution.

This should be your first clue, because when you hear Democrats talk about patriotism, you can bet they’ve stolen something and are about to be exposed.

In the words of President Reagan, “When you decide who to vote for in 2020, ask yourself – is Joe Biden’s family better off than they were four years ago?”

Alternatively, one might try to “distract” one’s opponents from the problems at hand.

Here, Nancy Pelosi tries to distract a “hostile” crowd with large breasts.

Ordinarily I can be easily “distracted” by a pair of large breasts but knowing WHO they belong makes them “uninteresting” and “unworthy” of further attention.

 

D-Day at Normandy

IN REMEMBRANCE of D-DAY at NORMANDY
June 6, 1944

Shockingly, even the usually “hostile” American Left Wing media “praised” his speech.

Enemies of Freedom

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on May 30, 2019 by andelino

The Fresno Grizzlies, a minor-league baseball team, aired on “Memorial Day” a 3-minute video playing “As for the Enemies of Freedom” during a doubleheader at Chukchansi Park in what was intended to be a “moving tribute.”

The video featured an “inspirational” speech of former President Ronald Reagan’s “1981 Inaugural” address about the cost of “freedom” transposed over various images.

“As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it. We will not surrender for it, now or ever. “We are Americans” Reagan said as the video flashed images of “Antifa, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro.”

In a statement, the ball club blamed the gaffe on “editing” in the video that “made a statement that was not our intent and certainly not our opinion.”

The statement went on to apologize to “our fans” and “those who have served and are currently serving the country for the undue distraction on such a solemn day.”​

But for the life of me, I cannot fathom what they would be “apologizing” for?

In my opinion, the only thing that they did wrong was not including AOC’s BFF’s “anti-Semite” Palestinian Ilhan Omar and “trash-mouth” Muslima Rashida Tlaib.

I see no difference between something such as this, and liberals such as that Ken Doll Eric Swalwell calling President Trump “An Agent of Russia.”

Or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling President Trump a “racist who is killing children” at the U.S. Southern Border.

Ironically, AOC was “dead silent” on Twitter over the Memorial Day weekend, which came and went without a “single mention of the millions of Americans who lost their lives defending her freedom.”

Regardless, folks “online” seemed to get a kick out of the video, and didn’t think an “apology” was necessary.

“Never feel sorry for telling the truth no matter how much it hurts. AOC is an enemy of this country and everything it stands for.” — Cameron (@calisurfboy) May 28, 2019

“Those of us who really love America think the clip was spot on. No need to apologize for the truth.” — victoria kloch (@vKloch) May 28, 2019

 Putting aside the image “insertion” that took place at the 3:05 mark please watch the entire video and you’ll be “reminded” of why Ronald Reagan was one of Americas greatest President and Patriot.

“America will never forget you.”
R.I.P. President Reagan

Clueless American “morons” who do not “know or care” why we celebrate “Memorial Day”
