Liberal Media picks GOP candidate, again

You’d think by now Republicans would get tired of letting the liberal media pick their presidential candidate; but they haven’t learned a thing as we go into Super Tuesday.  Old guard Republicans wanted Jeb Bush to continue their spiral towards socialism and what they perceive as a necessary means of getting along with folks on the other side of the aisle, shaking hands with the Devil might be more appropriate.  That’s not going to happen; Jeb’s campaign already tanked and he’s left the scene leaving Trump, Cruz and Rubio to duke it out.

This year the leftist media apparently has gotten behind Donald Trump, at least temporarily, providing him with millions upon millions of dollars in free air time.  According to some analysts, “46 percent of the media coverage over the last month about the GOP candidates was about Trump, as measured by articles that appeared in Google News.”   I say the media has temporarily gotten behind Trump because once the real race for the presidency begins that very same media will throw every thing, including the kitchen sink at Trump as they prepare the way for yet another Democrat candidate to occupy the White House.

“Other Republican candidates have noticed the Trump coverage, and some of them are frustrated by it. 

“It could be the free billion dollars of publicity he has gotten by being on every channel all the time,” said Kentucky senator and GOP 2016 candidate Rand Paul, when asked Tuesday on Fox News about Trump’s surge.” 

The leftist media, and don’t think for a moment NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN or even Fox are not part of a vast propaganda game that sponsors polling data that alters the public’s perception and the eventual outcome of elections.  They’ve propped up weak candidates to run against stronger opponents for years; how do you think we got John McCain?   You really think angry John McCain would have risen to the top of the Republican ticket had it not been for some serious help from the Democrat Party via one of their favorite tools, the news media?

So it’s happening again, only this time around the Democrat Party wants Hillary Clinton, or if she's already on her way to prison, Bernie Sanders running against Donald Trump; or better still, an Independent Party Donald Trump along with Ted Cruz for the GOP to split the vote.  Those who’ve jumped on the Trump band wagon are oblivious to this game of chess; for that is what it really is, a game of high stakes chess with the winner taking all the marbles. 

This time around the marbles include picking the next Supreme Court Justice, total implementation of the United Nation’s Agenda 21, expansion of the war on coal and oil for the purpose of destroying America’s ability to compete on the world market, eradication of the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 10th Amendments as found in the Bill of Rights along with shredding what’s left of our constitution.   

Other than that not much is at stake so don’t give it another thought as you blindly follow the media and pull the lever for Donald Trump; he’s our boy.

Two Americas - which will win

Several years ago presidential hopeful John Edwards used the phrase Two Americas, something he claimed existed due to the ‘haves and have nots’; typical class warfare rhetoric intended to cause envy while at the same time stirring up votes from the ‘oppressed’.  It was a catchy phrase, enough for historians to latch onto it; but in a sense there really are two Americas, just not the way John Edwards portrayed them.

Here’s a glimpse at one of the Americas, and it’s not a pretty sight…

Not long after the body of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia reached room temperature, according to Tom Knighton of TPNN dot com,  Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks penned a vile op-ed piece which appeared at Foreign Policy Magazine (by subscription only).

Brooks didn’t hide her contempt for Justice Scalia, which in turn reflects her contempt for anyone who supports our constitutional republican form of government.

“The global legal and judicial communities, however, will mostly be indulging in joyful private choruses of ‘Ding, Dong, the Witch is Dead.’ Or maybe not so private.” 


The Georgetown law professor wrote, “Scalia was famously dismissive of foreign and international law, which he considered good enough for, well, foreigners — but not for the great United States. ‘I doubt whether anybody [in the United States] would say, ‘Yes, we want to be governed by the views of foreigners,’’ he scoffed in 2005.”

While reading this it becomes painfully clear that two Americas are battling for supremacy; not the haves and have nots as John Edwards portrayed the division; but instead there are those who would prefer a transformation towards a European socialistic state which values the collective over individual rights.   These are the same folks who would prefer the United Nations dictate policy rather than continue as a sovereign self governing constitutional republic. 

In the other America are those who wish to restore the vision of our Founding Fathers (hope that riles the appropriate leftists); that of a nation set on a course of individual liberty by our Creator with certain inalienable God given rights with a Constitution written in fairly plain language limiting government from infringing on those rights. 

Or…, “as Brooks finished her screed by saying, “Goodbye, Justice Scalia. The Supreme Court will be a quieter, more cosmopolitan place without you. But Jack Bauer’s sure going to miss you,” alluding to the late justice’s informal comments.”

Troubling as it may be to consider Rosa Brooks’s remarks on the recently departed Justice Scalia would be her influence as a university professor, her influence over young malleable minds. 

Our public school system and a goodly number of universities are run by progressives.  Day in and day out the mantra of socialism is spread; … from kindergarten, high school and on through every level of college the indoctrination process never ends.

Is it any wonder we have so many young people confused as to what America stands for?  They’ve been taught a steady diet of half truths and lies about what our Founding Fathers intended for our country.  Instead of recognizing America as Ronald Reagan saw her, "a shining city on a hill", something desirable “whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere”, the folks in progressive America detest having our roots in gospel sod which nurtured, fed and prospered this great nation;  and instead teach that it’s a land built on oppression and greed.  

Social Democrats would prefer leaving God out of any discussion as they re-write history to eliminate inalienable God given individual rights.  Needless to say, liberalism’s goal is to destroy the Constitution and the legal contract which holds and limits government when dealing with We The People.

This brings to mind the old Cherokee legend of Two Wolves.

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A  fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

The same is true regarding the two Americas…which will win?

Unclaimed Prizes

There was quite a bit of chatter going on this past week about the possibility a $63 Million Dollar lottery prize would go unclaimed.  My daughter in law wondered out loud, “Can you imagine finding out you had the winning ticket only to be told you waited too long to claim your winnings.  That would be awful; just think about how you’d feel.”

The idea of missing out on something that big would upset most folks; but then I got to thinking about it from a different angle.  What if you never found out?  The winning numbers were picked; but you never bothered to see if they matched the ticket you purchased; how bad would you feel since you never knew how much money you missed out on?  For all you knew the only money you lost was the two dollars spent on the ticket.

Life is like that for most folks; but this has nothing to do with purchasing a lottery ticket.

Mortality is the ticket we purchased to prove ourselves, to make ourselves eligible for all that God has.  Interestingly, each ticket purchased is a winner; the only losers are those that are not claimed.

Admittedly there are some qualifiers in order to claim your prizes; but rest assured, you did purchase a winning ticket the moment you accepted the Great Plan of Salvation.

Some folks don’t even know who they are as they go through the challenges of life.  Oh, they might know their parents, grandparents and even a long list of ancestors going back hundreds of years; but do they really know they are children of our Heavenly Father?  Do they understand their royal lineage makes possible an inheritance beyond our ability to grasp?

We are created in His image and, in due time, we’re expected to figure out how to behave according to the commandments and other instructions given via the scriptures and servants of the Lord.  Upon successful completion of our probationary period we are promised all that he has; if that’s not greater than any lottery prize then I don’t know what would impress you.

Once you’ve figured out you’re holding the winning ticket; will it alter the way you approach life?  I would certainly hope so.
