The number of police officers shot in 2020 is expected to surpass last years ‘historic’ numbers, according to the National Fraternal Order of Police.So far this year 106 officers have been shot and 23 killed. Twenty-seven of those shot were targeted in 22 different ambush attacks, according to the FOP.
I was a liberal. i believed the BIG LIE up to the age of 40. Born in 1952. You can do the math. Our parents were Democrats. They went to the local picnics. They donated to the fundraisers. They voted for Kennedy. They weren’t radicals by a long shot. Dad fought in WWII. Mom and dad waited until he got home from the war to get married. They both lived through the Great Depression. They did not have an easy life. They worked their whole lives and never took a dime from the government. The government didn’t have a dime to give. They insisted we attend Catholic school, go to Mass every Sunday, keep our rooms clean, do our homework and get our butts to bed at a certain time. Our black and white television was a luxury. As a family we watched Bonanza and Ed Sullivan. Mom watched the Lawrence Welk show and i thought that was pretty lame. It was American Bandstand and Soul Train for me. We grew up with music in our household. We just ended up having different tastes. My brother has a love for classical music. Go figure.
We were definitely middle class. Not rich, not poor. Dad made sure there was a roof over our heads, food on the table and a few toys at Christmas. They both had this typical answer of no. If they didn’t think you needed it or they didn’t have the money it was a resounding no. If they didn’t think there was something you should be allowed to do it was a resounding no. We managed to survive it; not that they didn’t have their hands full. Unfortunately after the Kennedy assassination and the upheaval of the 1960’s their world and ours was turned upside down. The legislators gave the 18 yr old the right to vote with an amendment to the Constitution. I thought it was very noble of them at the time. Now, as i can look back with an objective eye, it has since occurred to me it wasn’t noble at all. They wanted the demographic to vote Democrat. I became a raving liberal. The Republicans were for the rich. Democrats were for the poor. War is always evil run by the industrial military complex. Abortion was a woman’s right and men were trying to oppress women. The capitalist system was oppressing the poor. Freedom meant being able to do whatever we wanted. Our parents had sacrificed so much for us and tried to instill the good values they grew up with. We took a lot for granted & decided to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
You know who those people were leading us down that path? Marxists. Atheists. Hedonists. You know where those ppl are now? Academia, Cable News, Government. They became ‘the man’ we were supposed to reject. They’re still Marxists, atheists, hedonists who twist the meaning of language.
I think i was fortunate to be given a moment of grace and that moment gave me an opportunity for self reflection on my whole life up to that point. Our parents were good people who were Democrat because they believed the Democrat party represented hard working middle class families. They didn’t get into the weeds with politics. They did what they could for the local Democrat party and voted for Democrat presidents. They may have voted for Reagan but we never discussed who we voted for, so i have no way of knowing with certainty(it’s a hunch); they considered the vote as confidential as the sacrament of confession. I know Carter was not doing the best job. Gas prices were high and our hostages were being held in Iran. Things were not good so i feel safe in assuming they voted for Reagan. I also suspect they voted Obama but i can’t say that with certainty either. i know mom just loved Hillary. Don’t ask me why. They weren’t ideologues as you would think of ideologues. They were very simple people. They weren’t book smart. They were life smart. They based their opinions on the world view THEY grew up with.
Now i look back on everything they did for us with the gratitude i should have had then. You cannot imagine how often i stop and think how i should have been a better daughter. They meant well voting Democrat. A lot of those folks meant well voting Democrat. My folks had a great love of country. They would never have supported a football player taking the knee at the anthem. Take that to the bank. My dad’s last request before he passed away was getting a nice flag to put on their front porch for July 4th.We did. Mom went right to the store and picked it up. They taught us to respect authority, especially law enforcement. The Democrats spitting on our police would never have flown with them. They never lived to see what happened to our country so they always remained Democrats.
I could never vote Democrat again though. I respect my parents choice but this party is not for me. i became pro life with a passion and that was the beginning of the end for liberalism/marxism and the Democrat party. I’m even sure, given everything i’ve seen so far, our parents would never go for where the party has gone-or at least since it revealed its true identity. Once your eyes are opened you suddenly see the BIG LIE.
What is the big lie? It boils down to this-the true meaning of freedom. The BIG LIE is that freedom means being able to do whatever you want. Real freedom(liberty)is the right to do the moral good or ought. Our fathers and grandfather’s didn’t fight in WWII for us to burn down our cities, disrespect our police or murder our babies. They didn’t fight and die in WII for us to abandon our families and let government take care of our needs. They were good at telling us no for a reason. Liberalism is dangerous. It says yes to everything and anything.
Obama, Biden, Hillary and their cabal are telling us a bigger lie and their media is helping them. The bigger lie is that if they break the law, oppose legitimate duly elected government and ignore justice it’s for a righteous reason. It means they can get away with murder. So far they have. I know my folks would have wanted me to stand up for what is right and oppose the Marxism they’re trying to impose on our country.
Thomas Sowell took this journey. Andrew Breitbart took this journey. David Horowitz took this journey. Candace Owens took this journey. We owe it to good people who gave us the foundation to find our way. We owe it to our God given rights guaranteeing the freedom we have to encounter the truth. We must reject Marxism and all its lies.
CNN had to bring on Obama to help them gaslight the public and fight for Joe. Headline:
Former president warned in CNN interview ‘the path towards an undemocratic America’ will come ‘in a series of steps’https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/08/barack-obama-cnn-interview-republicans-election-trump
We know and that’s why the public is pushing back against CRT and indoctrination in our schools. We know the left accuses the other side of what THEY are doing. We know that the media is gaslighting the public when it claims Joe Manchin is “blocking federal voting rights protections”. HR1 is not about voting rights protections. It’s about federalizing elections so control ends up in DC away from the states and making fraud easier at the local level.Manchin understands that and it’s why he’s willing to take the heat. Yes, Obama was our first black President as the Guardian article felt necessary to point out.Biden isn’t black. He’s as white as they come and supported segregation. Biden was the main antagonist against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in what Thomas called a ‘high tech lynching.’ It was, we saw it and it was incredibly brutal. Biden is as white as they come and he’s not a nice guy either. For those that really know Joe(not the media lie)they can tell you nasty he is. You know what the lies are when the media is giving you the narrative and calling it news. Obama complained about the many outlets there are now. What is he looking for in ‘news’. A single one voice outlet of propaganda?
Our eyes work. We can think for ourselves. We don’t need a narrative.
So what did Obama basically say? We’re white supremacists and that’s why we want to suppress the vote. The Marxists aren’t a threat to our Republic-which he keeps calling a democracy-the racist Republicans are.
You don’t bring out Obama unless you smell trouble. Anderson Cooper just sits there and let’s Obama say whatever without question. Journalists ask questions. They dig deep. They go wherever the facts lead them. CNN does not do journalism.
Before you jump on my case and call me a racist for my attitude towards Obama let’s get a few things out in the open:
i didn’t vote for Obama. He was a radical and admitted he was a radical. He wasn’t hiding it, if you paid attention. He said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. That could mean a lot of different things to different people but i knew EXACTLY what he meant. I had no intention of voting for Obama because of his Marxist/radical ideology and no desire to prove i wasn’t a racist. i don’t have to prove that to anyone. IF you think i’m a white supremacist or whatever-knock yourself silly. i didn’t care for Romney or McCain either. I surely didn’t care for Obama’s VP pick Biden and Clinton at the State Dept.
One thing i’ll say for Obama that i can’t say for Biden is [that] at least he’s got his wits about him. They’re both anti American. They have that in common.Yet, Joe’s been living off the government for years while Obama is a newbie in that department. I’ll bet if the truth were told Obama probably can’t stand Biden but he’s the perfect tool. They both know where the bodies are buried so they have to support each other.
No, the Republicans are not trying to suppress any vote. Do they even realize how stupid that sounds? You’re trying to get MORE votes so you can win,not stop ppl from voting. Ask Joe Biden about Jim Crow Laws if you really want to know what that was all about. Ask Joe Biden about his support for segregation. Bet CNN would never touch that one.
The Republicans are trying to increase the vote and suppress fraud. Makes sense to me. Read the Democrats HR1 Bill and you’ll figure out how it’s a recipe for cheating; meaning candidates would have to cheat better than their opposing candidates, a free for all. Who wants to go down that road? If you as a voter want YOUR vote to count we have to keep our elections clean and honest. There may always be some fraud-always someone who’s willing to do something dishonest- but let’s keep it at a minimum and try to discourage it. BTW, voter fraud is still illegal.
What you do then, if you’re CNN, is bring out Obama to accuse the Republicans of being racists who don’t want minorities to vote. Then Obama can use the word insurrection to point a finger at Republicans(particularly Trump)when he never said a peep about BLM/Antifa for the whole of 2020.
Jan 6,2021 was not an insurrection no matter how many times you say it. It was a 1 day out of control riot. Our eyes work Obama. We don’t need the propaganda department at CNN telling us what we saw in 2020 and 2021.Antifa is still out in Oregon raising hell. They’re still an organized group just like BLM is still an organized group. They still have the same goals too. Anyone want to spell out what those goals are? We definitely need to have that discussion. You can give a group any name and the left is good at fooling the public with verbal engineering. Who is going to argue against Black Lives Matter? Of course they do,but if you oppose the ORGANIZATION by that name you’re obviously racist. How about Antifa which stands for anti fascist? Look at their tactics. Of course we’re anti fascist but if you oppose the ORGANIZATION that uses the name then you have to be a fascist. See how that works?
Forget their names; look at their tactics & their goals.They hide behind their names.
It’s their goals and tactics that need investigation.
The group on Jan 6,2021 was violent. Antifa and BLM in 2020-2021 are peaceful protestors. This is the media narrative. We have to have law and order and that’s the side ALL of us need to be on. We have to have due process. That’s the side ALL of us need to be on. The group from the Jan 6,2021 riot,for the most part,IS locked up. Those they have caught are under arrest and sitting in jail/prison. Antifa is still roaming the streets and raising hell,attacking police,federal buildings and causing chaos.
Question for Cooper,Obama or any Democrat willing to answer; what was ‘the Resistance’ movement in 2016-2020? They weren’t trying to overthrow or destroy a legitimately elected President? That’s the very definition of insurrection. Let’s talk about that one sometime and we will.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on June 10 that “hundreds” of military whistleblowers have reported being forced to receive “anti-American indoctrination” training, including critical race theory (CRT).In a Senate hearing with Austin, Cotton claimed that within the military, there’s
“plummeting morale, growing mistrust between races and sexes where none existed just six months ago and unexpected retirements and separations based on these trainings alone.”
a military take over,ousting the anti American Marxists and holding free and fair elections going forward would solve that problem or voting the pos out in 2024 would be very helpful. Either way works.
President Trump was a force to be reckoned with. He ALMOST destroyed them,but as we see almost wasn’t good enough. For 4 yrs there was a chess match and for the longest time he out maneuvered them. They got desperate and went for broke. They’re attempting an assassination without firing a shot.You want me to be honest. If all else failed i bet they would sink that low and actually pull the trigger.
How did we get here? The deep state was entrenched by the time we elected Trump. For the longest time the Republicans picked their weakest to run and expected we would plug our noses no matter what. They always told us the Democrat was worse so we would vote the Republican because the Republican was a hair better. The Democrats picked their weakest too until Obama. The wolf was now at the gate. Who did the Republicans set us up with? Romney and McCain. Who did they give us for House Speaker? First Boehner then Ryan and finally McConnell. PLEASE give us a break. Give us someone we can support!!!
Some ppl plugged their noses and voted Romney and McCain. Obviously some ppl just gave up and stayed home. Other Republicans probably voted Obama.Doesn’t matter because neither of these candidates could defeat him. Even the Clinton machine couldn’t beat him. That says a lot.
With Obama’s term up, of course Hillary would be next in line. What Obama didn’t see coming and Hillary didn’t see coming was Trump. The GOP establishment and uniparty didn’t see him coming either. The Deep State had their antenna up though. When they saw it was altogether possible Trump could be the nominee they kicked into high gear. Eventually all the forces that would be arrayed against him, for his first term, were in motion.
Obama-Biden,Hillary, the GOPe,Paul Ryan, the NSA,the FISA court, the FBI,Christopher Steele,John McCain…and a host of secondary actors from A-Z.
On the plus side Trump was an outsider. On the down side of being a DC outsider he had to get his sea legs in forming an administration. Once that was established he had to feel out DC and see how he could work with people who,for the most part, were swamp. Who knew how deep and wide and CORRUPT it was? I’m sure Pres Trump went into office with the same belief in our institutions we, as Americans, have always had.
Meanwhile Obama was just down the road with his shadow government and Hillary and her cabal had already gotten away with murder; they funded the phony dossier against Trump. We know the rest of the story about Obamagate (aka Spygate). Unfortunately, Trump was a lone man in a world full of backstabbers and the institutions we used to trust to protect our Republic from corruption, had become corrupt. Once Trump had beaten Hillary and he survived the Deep State onslaught of his first 4 yr term there was no way on earth they were going to let him get a 2nd term and if that meant cheating and fraud so be it. Whatever it would take.
There were some steps Trump should have taken and didn’t. (Puzzling to this day). He accomplished so much that i don’t want to seem ungrateful. He earned his 2nd term and i’m ready to give him his 3rd in 2024 but i did want to point out a few areas that need some work. Maybe there was a reason he didn’t get to them the first time. i hate to be an ‘armchair general’. It’s always easier on the outside than in the thick of battle. I just think it’s helpful to point these out. Consider it constructive criticism because i want him to be successful. When he’s successful, the country’s successful too. After you take all these points into consideration, recall all the major accomplishments he never got credit for. With that in mind, here we go:
- Fire Christopher Wray at the FBI and send someone in to really clean house. Devin Nunes would have done the job. There was a handful of people you could trust to get it done. Nunes was always the top of my list. Trump stuck with Wray. I still don’t get it.
- Esper at DOD opposed Trump calling BLM/Antifa violence in various cities-notably Portland-an insurrection and sending in military. Trump should have done it anyway. Another head scratcher. Trump was the CIC, not Esper. Lt Col Allen West would have been an awesome choice for the DOD.Anyone BUT Esper would have been a good choice. Once you find out they’re swamp, it’s time to show ’em the door.
- At first i thought Barr was a good choice for the DOJ. Durham was a head fake all along. Anyone ever see another picture of Durham besides the one that always made the rounds? Bet he doesn’t exist. Barr should have stuck to his bagpipes. Plenty of hot air. I have 1 question re Barr. Did he clean up the DOJ? Tell me he did and i’ll cut him some slack. Answer no, and it simply confirms my assessment.
- Trump should have told Turtle to pound sand. The Republicans need to [privately] tell Turtle to pound sand and ‘ask’ him to retire gracefully.
When Trump wins his 2nd term it will be his last term and i say it’s time for Trump unchained. If they’re swamp replace them. Hold the criminals accountable. This time Pres Trump can pick ppl of his own choosing-and i surely wouldn’t be as trusting as i was the first time. Of course, since then, most of the rats have been exposed.
As for us, the Trump supporters, the smelly MAGA Walmart ppl now that we see that the wolf made its way into the gate we have no choice now but to stand up and push back. They’re Marxists and we shouldn’t be timid about saying it. Trump is right. We have to save America. It’s not make America great again, it’s not keep America great-it’s SAVE America. It’s up to the Republicans in Congress and the Republican governors in the states to stand up to the Marxists [and their swamp] on the Federal level. That’s THEIR job. They took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and our country. It’s our job to stand up to them on the local level and keep the Republicans in office honest. If they’re swamp,if they’re backstabbers and if they didn’t stand up for Trump when they had the chance-we have to send them packing. If they’re on our side we have to give them all our support.
BTW. Trump had and still has 100% of my support. I call him President Trump. PERIOD. Not former, not previous, not ex. I am proudly going to give him -God willing i’m still here then-my 3rd vote in 2024.
