When we planned our trip to Malaysia we had to have a layover in Shanghai, China. It could be an hour and a half or thirteen hours. We researched online and talked to the airline about the need for visas to visit Shanghai during a layover. The airline said we could stay 144 hours without a visa as long as we had a confirmed ticket to another destination. On the internet we got conflicting information, some said 144 hours and other places said 24 hours, but in either case we were OK.

After a 13 hour flight from Los Angeles, we arrived at Pudong Airport (what an appropriate name). We found a sign that said “24 HOUR TRANSIT”. There were only about fifteen people in line but it was more than an hour before we got to the front of the line.

In front of us was a tall, blond American man in kakis and a plaid flannel shirt. He was telling a young lady from New York he was going to the World Urban Forum in Malaysia. We told him we were going there too. He became very enthusiastic and said he had been to the Rio and Paris conferences too. Debbie Bacigalupi said so had she. He was now our instant friend. He wanted to know what our interest in the conference was. Debbie said she was from a ranching family and wanted to protect ranches and farms. He enthusiastically said he did too. He said he had been at the North Dakota Keystone Pipeline protest to protect farmlands from the pipeline. I told him there were millions of pipelines across America. We asked him what he did and he said he organized human artistic displays that could only be seen from the air. His name is John Quigley. He was going to do a display at the WUF9 conference. He said at the Paris conference he organized a display for 100% renewable energy. I couldn’t contain myself any longer and said I was against 100% renewables. I might as well have punched him in the face. He wanted to know why. I said, look around, just about everything you see is made from petroleum products. He said, yes, NOW. I wondered what substitute he had in mind for plastic. https://www.thestar.com.my/metro/metro-news/2018/02/14/giant-art-formation-to-spread-message-event-at-dataran-merdeka-to-promote-rights-of-the-disabled-and/

We finally got to the window and were told there was no “24 hour transit” and we couldn’t leave the airport. After a 13 hour flight, we now had 13 hours to waste in an airport. The view from the airport was obstructed by the quality of the air. You couldn’t see beyond the runways. Besides playing games on my iPad until I had to recharge, I did a lot of people watching. I noticed that every female flight attendant and every female airline employee was young, thin and wore her hair EXACTLY the same. No bangs, no tendrils, their hair was pulled straight back into a tight little bun. I assume there aren’t many anti-discrimination law suits happening in China. I also noticed Chinese people talking on cell phones and taking pictures with them, but not spending hours on them the way we do. I assumed again, they don’t have access to as much as we do.

When we finally reached Malaysia, one of the first things we did was find the Chinese Embassy and get an expedited visa so that we could visit Shanghai.

After our time in Malaysia, with our visa’s in hand we landed again at Pudong Airport, Shanghai, China. We got in a very long, very slow line to go through Passport check. They took our picture, fingerprints and checked our visas. After I passed through I waited behind the cubical Debbie was going through. I could see the computer screen the officer was looking at. There were at least three pictures of Debbie on the screen. I wondered were the other pictures came from.

Once through the visa check, we got in another very long, even slower line to go through customs. Once released from airport prison, we took the bullet train close to the city. The train runs on magnets and travels 19 miles in 6 minutes. We then changed to the subway where we were packed in like sardines. It seemed when people got off even more got on. I couldn’t imagine trying to take groceries home on the subway.

We ended up at the Huangpu River across from downtown Shanghai. We were the first that morning to wait by the gate to the ferry. As people started to arrive a family came with grandma, grandpa, two adult sons (one dressed in modern clothes, black skinny jeans, black sweater and sunglasses, one a Monk in red robes), and an adult daughter with her little girl. They took family pictures with the group. We suddenly realized that we were quite a curiosity to the natives.

Debbie knelt down to get something from her backpack and the young man in black sat on the ground in front of her and took a selfie with us. Then the woman with her hands on the little girls shoulders scooted herself and her daughter into the middle of us and had her family take pictures of them with us.

The city has very impressive modern buildings, much like any big city anywhere in the world. We walked along the river and came to a large mall. It had H&M, Zara, Coach, Forever 21, McDonalds, Starbucks…..all the stores you’d find anywhere. We left the mall, went up some stairs and found ourselves on an elevated sidewalk that encircled the the four corners of the intersection. After having coffee at Starbucks, we wanted to see the older, more authentic part of the city so we took the “Bund”, small subway cars, that travel under the river. It was like a Disney ride with flashing lights and sounds.

Through out the city and surrounding it are high rise apartments. 30, 40 stories high. Many people work and live in the same building. They range from old, poorly maintained buildings to new, high end buildings, but what was common to both were the clothes drying on balconies or in the front windows. Apparently, clothes dryers aren’t an approved appliance. With the air quality as poor as it is, I wondered how clean “air drying” was. Another custom you couldn’t miss were the face masks worn by so many. They went from the typical paper medical masks, to cloth cartoon masks, printed masks, fuzzy animal masks and ominous, Ninja looking black masks.

We also couldn’t help noticing all the surveillance. Cameras were EVERYWHERE, on the streets and in the buildings. Not only are you on camera at all times, they use face recognition so they know who you are. At one intersection we counted more than 30 cameras. We were told that if you commit a crime you will be arrested within seven minutes. I wondered if the masks were to protect them from germs and smog or to disguise them. The crowds, the masses of people were daunting. If you spoke to an individual they would smile and giggle and bow and be very polite but crowds would run you over. No “sorry” or “pardon me” if they stepped on your foot, tripped you or bumped into you. I think there are so many of them they know they have to push forward or they’ll be left behind.

We were there during the Chinese New Year and the entire city was decorated in red tassels. There were large cartoon like displays everywhere. They really like cartoons and they dote on their children. Although, they can now have a second child, they have to pay to have one and the fee makes it impossible for any but the rich. For that reason you still don’t see many families with more than one child.

In the old town were hundreds of small interesting shops. We spent some time in a shop that had everything from fabrics, beads, back scratchers, purses, cosmetics and expensive jade jewelry. Debbie bought some gifts to take home but didn’t have enough Yen and the shop didn’t take credit cards. The cashier said he’d take US dollars so everyone got out their cell phones to figure out the conversion. Haggling and laughing ensued as the conversion kept changing.

We came upon an old Chinese garden built within an unusual rock formation. There were temples and koi ponds that flowed through the rocks to other ponds. There were walkways and bridges that wound their way around the garden. The garden gave you a glimpse into how China used to be. I crossed a small bridge, as a young couple were taking selfies of themselves. As I passed them, the young man touched my arm and held out his iPhone. I thought he was asking me to take a photo of them, but instead he moved me next to his girlfriend and took a picture of her with me. Americans are so rare there, especially, blond, blue eyed ones, that they want to capture us on film. I wasn’t sure if I was a celebrity or a freak.

We decided to have lunch at a restaurant that had been recommended. We hailed a cab and told the driver the address. He put it into his GPS and I watched and listened as his GPS told him in Chinese where to turn. In about 10 or 15 minutes we arrived at the restaurant. As we exited the cab I looked in front of us and realized we were about a block over from where we started. I thought it was hysterically funny that his GPS helped his scam.

Later as I walked down a small street a young boy stopped in front of me and said, “Hello, my name is ???? and I’m from Shanghai, China, where are you from?” I told him I was from Los Angeles, California, USA. I told him he spoke English very well. He thanked me. I asked him how old he was and he said he was seven years old. As we talked, the little boys mother was video taping us. He kept looking at his Mom for approval and she kept smiling and nodding. I asked him if he learned English in school and he said he did. He got out a paper he had in his pocket and unfolded it. He asked me to write my name and where I was from. He said he was going to show his teacher and his class. As I wrote I told him he was a very polite young man and I was sure his mother was very proud of him. His Mom said she was. He bowed and thanked me as he ran to his Mom so pleased with his trophy.

A few days after we returned home I heard Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the end of term limits. This allows him to rule for life. I wish he had done this before we visited China. I would love to have asked the people what they thought.

Having just been inundated with praise for “diversity” and “migration” at WUF9, it was impossible to ignore there weren’t any hijabs or burkas in China. I can’t swear there are none anywhere in China but I didn’t see any Blacks, Latinos, East Indians or any other race in Shanghai but Asian. It makes you question why the UN is so insistent Europe and America take all the Muslim refugees. If “diversity” is so valuable, if immigration is so good for the economy, it humanitarianism is such a virtue, why are Asian countries not embracing “migration”?

Since we opened up trade with China, they have become very rich and powerful….mostly at our expense. If we don’t learn from this, we’ll all be speaking Chinese in the future.

The third day of the United Nations World Urban Forum 9 (WUF9) placed much emphasis on youth and migration involvement for implementing the global plan called the New Urban Agenda (NUA). Art displays adorned the halls and exhibit spaces; children throughout the world must have been asked (aka, trained) to envision the future of 21st century megacities. In their cardboard megacities, the children used air-filled balloons to represent “drone” centers of surveillance for example.  Crayon art on walls displayed stick-figure-ish people of all colors holding hands around Earth.  No less than fifteen breakout sessions focused on the role of youth, migration, and sustainable cities.
The objectives for the youth-centered meetings at WUF9 included  “Foster[ing] and encourage[ing] the establishment of inter-generational dialogue between various stakeholders with the aim of promoting sustainable urban development,” to “provide an online platform for global youth to exchange experiences and solutions,” and to “provide an evidence-base for the implementation, monitoring, and review of the New Urban Agenda.”
According to the Secretary General of the UN’s Envoy on Youth, Donovan Gutierres, there are about 1.8 Billion young people between the ages of 10 and 24 today — the largest youth population ever. As such, the youth create unprecedented potential for change in economic and social “progress.” The Children and Youth Assembly at WUF9 is guided by the connected objectives of the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development ambitions. Youth are absolutely necessary and vital to the United Nations and the UN’s goal of urbanizing the world to promote inclusivity, equity, resiliency, and sustainability.
During a session entitled, “One Planet Cities” a speaker from Denmark proudly explained how important youth are to the NUA. He said, “we’ve been educating our children for the last 25 years on anthropogenic global warming” and since many are now adults “they are actively implementing policies to combat Climate Change.”
Another WUF9 session, “Durable Solutions in Displacement Crisis” was primarily about migrants coming to any country due to natural disasters, war, or anthropogenic Climate Change. The speakers discussed the impact on communities whose local services are neither prepared for nor have the funding for thousands to hundreds of thousands of displaced people flooding into their countries. In some countries and cultures due to ageing populations (like the decreasing numbers of farmers around the globe), talks of “replacement migration” took place. 
Whether getting the youth involved or encouraging migration, funding is vital to implement the NUA.  And as such, a big conversation topic for the no less than twenty lectures we attended touched on where the money would come from. No doubt, the “developed” countries like the USA.  Who knows what happened in the closed sessions for VIP’s from various countries who required special badges and heavy security. Who knows whose money was discussed…
While in Kuala Lumpur, a Malaysian city surrounded by tropical trees and plants, it is impossible not to notice the hundreds of high rise, mixed-use space apartment-style buildings under construction and strategically placed next to the subway system and bus terminals. Thirty, forty stories high.  Residents say single family homes are becoming a thing of the past.  Kuala Lumpur has a growing population of about 9 million – youth, ageing, and very diverse. A perfect location for WUF9.

So, why should we care about the UN’s WUF9 Conference half way around the world? Why should we care what the UN wants? It’s the United Nations not the United States. They have no authority over us……or do they? We have signed a number of treaties with the UN that erode our sovereignty. We signed Agenda 21 in 1992 and the UN’s 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

We should care because many of the goals of the UN’s agenda are being implemented today through ICLEI, Wildlands, Wetlands, Endangered Species policies as well as the EPA, CDC, and other agencies. We have regional non-elected, non-accountable planning commissions overriding local planning. We’ve never given our consent for these regional commissions. Most of the citizens don’t even know they exist.

California is ground zero for the implementation of Agenda 21 goals. We are the only state with Cap and Trade. Although we are not yet feeling the effects of Cap and Trade, we will in the near future. One thing is certain, it will become much more expensive, if not prohibitive, to use the appliances we depend on.

As you drive down the main streets of your communities, notice the buildings that have been built In recent years or are being built now. They are multi-use buildings with commercial space on the first floor and three or more floors of apartments above. The goal of WUF9 is to have 80% of the worlds population living in apartments in cities and using public transportation by 2050.

California is racing as fast as it can to cement Agenda 21 goals into law. We can’t stop what is happening unless we know what is being planned and how it’s being implemented.

The Opening Ceremony of the 2018 United Nations Habitat World Urban Forum #9 (WUF9) held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia began with the raising of the UN flag and thunderous applause, costumes, dance, and singing as thousands of delegates and “high level persons” (representing 165 of the193 countries signed on to the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development) convened in the large Convention Center’s main auditorium.  In UN fashion, UN security guards welcomed high-level badge holders to participate in the ceremony while thousands more could only watch the ceremony on their smartphones.  Prince Charles sent a special video message to UN Ministers, Delegates, city planners, and stakeholders stating with urgency, “Now is the time to implement the New Urban Agenda.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RoO_fMB6oo&t=28s

The New Urban Agenda (NUA) is a global plan of governance for “Sustainable Development” – man-made global warming and “Climate Change” is the culprit of planetary destruction but living in “resilient”, “inclusive”, “diverse”, “sustainable”,  “equitable”, “smart”, “walkable”, “liveable”, “carbon neutral” Cities by the year 2030 is the solution.  Thus, the theme of this year’s UN Habitat Conference is “Cities 2030, Cities for All: Implementing the New Urban Agenda.”  WUF 9 will be the first session to focus on the implementation of the NUA.

WUF9 embraced the new UN Habitat Executive Director, who received a standing ovation.  Maimunah Mohd Sharif of Malaysia is “the first Asian woman to be appointed” to such a position and “is a champion of Gender Responsive Participatory Budgeting to integrate gender perspectives into the governance process as a tool to mainstream gender into budgetary and development policy and planning” according to UNHabitat.org.  Earlier in the day, Ms. Sharif spoke to a full room of UN Ministers and a “High Level” panel (which included Neal Rackleff, Assistant Secretary in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development).  Like Prince Charles, she urged attendees a “successful deliberation” and implementation of the NUA adding, now that she is in her new role, “I need to walk the talk with you.”  As an awarded “Planner,” she has spent her career in Planning and Development for growing urban populations.  ICLEI, a UN-NGO actively involved in facilitating climate action plans while influencing policy in cities across the United States, describes Ms. Sharif, as a “key leader in ICLEI’s work on climate change.”  Ms. Sharif emphasized the role of the youth in global plans and the need “to localize the Sustainable Development Goals” as she looks forward to upcoming meetings in New York.

There is a high level of security presence here; bomb and HAZMAT squads and vehicles, hundreds of Malaysian police and UN police surround the outside and inside of the Convention Center.  Similar to airport security, purses and bags are electronically scanned.  One must go through a metal detector. Participants are photographed and I.D. badges are swiped like credit cards in scanners as one enters and exits the convention.

And, even with such serious sounding security, convention staff and attendees are happy and excited to play a role in WUF9.  They see the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as achievable knowing Goal 11 (“Sustainable Cities and Communities”) lies at the heart of implementation since people and “collective action” are the necessary drivers of such goals. It’s a numbers game the UN describes as “No one left behind” echoed by President Obama back on September 27, 2015 in his remarks about “Sustainable Development.”   The vision is 70% of the world’s population will be living and working in megacities by the year 2050.  In the United States, according to WUF9 speaker and University of Pennsylvania Professor Eugenie Birch (Associate Editor, Journal of the American Planning Association) that number is approximately 80% of Americans who will live in cities.
When it comes to President Trump and the United States, the hopeful, happy demeanor at the conference turns into sarcasm, disappointment, and/or joking.  We asked a New York UN police officer what he thought about Trump’s attempt to pull out of the Paris agreement and he wryly smiled as he mimed locking his lips shut.  He said, “Just wait, things will change” suggesting the US is not done with the Paris Agreement.  We asked NextCity CEO and former director of the New Jersey Regional Plan Association, Tom Dellasio, about President Trump, and he rolled his eyes.  The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, funded by the Ford Foundation and “seeks to improve quality of life through the effective use, taxation, and stewardship of land” said “American cities should go it [climate change policy] alone.”  We interviewed University of Pennsylvania Professor Eugenie Birch, who had a similar but disappointed response, “Trump took away needed funded” for NUA implementation.  When discussing the 20% of people who will live in rural America, land use, biodiversity, and heavy regulations like the Clean Water Act, Professor Birch stated that “[American] farmers have gotten away with murder” polluting water resources. In a breakout session about linking international cities, European Union panelists of mayors and city planners joked about Americans and the United States: “we’re not sure what happened to North America [audience laughter] but we’re trying to make Sustainable Development great again” followed by more audience laughter.
The official opening day of WUF9 was filled with many hours deliberating, discussing, and agreeing to plans and implementation policies for our future – a sustainably developed one “with no one left behind.”  It ended with hours of pouring rain, flooding, and traffic gridlock.  Perhaps the carbon footprint of an estimated 30,000 WUF9 registrants making plans about our future caused a man-made Climate Change downpour in Malaysia.

Most of us are busy getting our kids to school, getting ourselves to work, paying our bills and living our lives, completely unaware that in remote areas of the world (January Davos, February Kuala Lumpur) the elites, the “smart” people, are meeting to decide our fate. They are deciding how we can live, where we can live, and how much we’re allowed to have. They fly around in private planes, stay at five star hotels and eat lavish meals while discussing how to ration our access to the same. The rest of us have no seat at the table. Apparently, we’re just not smart enough to know what’s good for us.

Why did we travel to the other side of the world for the UN Habitat 9 Conference? CFACT and American Freedom Alliance want to make sure “the people” have a seat at the table. UN Habitat aka World Urban Forum has been convened by the United Nations Human Settlements Program since 2002 (Ten years after 173 nations signed Agenda 21). The topic is the “New Urban Agenda”. What exactly does that mean? MORE THAN 30.000 people from 193 countries registered to attend WUF9 although attendance was between 20 and 25 thousand.

The Program said the focus would be on “Cities for All” as a tool and accelerator for achieving the UN’s Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Discussions were on “Sustainable Urbanization”, “Sustainable Urban Development, Social Inclusion and Ending Poverty”. There are no discussions about suburban living, farming or ranching. The conservations were more about changing our economic system from Capitalism to Socialism than about the effect man has on the Climate Change.

So, what does that mean for people who don’t want to live in “Cities for All”? What if you want a home in the country and a swimming pool? It’s difficult not to notice that nearly every building constructed in the last few years is multi-use with commercial space on the ground floor and apartments above. And not just in the United States but around the world. Is it your dream in life to live in an apartment and tote your groceries home on a bus or a bike?

Are you curious about how they plan to “end poverty”? Would everyone get paid the same whether or not they work or if they dig ditches or perform brain surgery? What would be the incentive to study for years if there was no financial benefit?

The media isn’t very interested in what the elites are planning for us but we need to be. We went and are reporting back to you.

To be continued…….

At last week’s Sheriff’s Civilian Oversight Committee meeting they read a draft of their recommendations to Sheriff McDonnell, who at present is co-operating with ICE.

1. That the Sheriff’s Department not honor immigration holds – holding inmates longer than their release date so that ICE has extra time to take them into custody – unless required by state or federal law.
2. That the Sheriff’s Department not disseminate information about the release status or other confidential information concerning an inmate unless required by state or federal law.
3. That the Sheriff’s Department not provide information to ICE if not available to the public.
4. That the department avoid responding to ICE requests for backup or assistance on operations that lack “exigent circumstances,” such as lives being at risk.
5. Not giving ICE officials prioritized access to space and equipment inside its inmate reception center.
6. And to consider limiting the use of department resources for coordination with ICE without federal reimbursement.

During the public comments I said, of course we want law enforcement agencies to co-operate with each other. Where would we be if they didn’t? What if each state said they wouldn’t share their DNA or fingerprint data with other agencies? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH-_YZNDZD0

They informed us that before they submit their recommendations members of the public could make an appointment to speak to the Ad-Hoc committee for ten minutes to voice their agreement or opposition to their recommendations. The following is what I said to the committee:

“I’ve come to speak today because the people being disenfranchised are not the illegal aliens. The disenfranchised are the legal, natural born citizens of California. Not a single California representative or governing body represents us. Due to legal and illegal immigration, we are now a one party state and WE have no seat at the table, WE have no voice. We may not be the majority in California anymore but we are the majority in the country. I gave you two articles, one from The Hill and one from the Washington Times that say the majority of American citizens (I believe it’s 80%) from both sides of the political spectrum want less immigration altogether. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jan/22/shock-poll-us-wants-massive-cuts-legal-immigration/

They also say the majority of us oppose Sanctuary Cities or States. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/320487-poll-americans-overwhelmingly-oppose-sanctuary-cities

Our founding documents say our government is to govern by the consent of the governed. Our government has NEVER had our consent for unlimited immigration or open borders. In fact ,we have made it ABUNDANTLY clear that we want secure borders and an end to illegal immigration. People are painfully aware and understandably angry that our representatives don’t care what we want.

I grew up in California and I remember what California was like before the 1986 Amnesty and what it’s like now. Homelessness, poverty and crime have risen in tandem with the increase in immigration from the south. It is undeniable. California used to be the Golden state. It’s now the poverty capital of the country.

Believe me I get the concern about children brought here by their parents. I understand not wanting to punish people who are behaving responsibly. But let’s not pretend they are all college grads, business owners, or serving in the military. A large percentage of them commit crimes, and yes, they ARE more likely to commit crimes than we are. I also gave you a study that shows illegals commit crimes at double the rate of native born citizens. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jan/26/illegals-commit-crimes-double-rate-native-born-stu/

But what I don’t get is protecting illegal alien CRIMINALS. You and I both know they more than likely to reoffend if released into the community. We expect our law enforcement to protect US not illegal alien CRIMINALS. And we expect all law enforcement agencies to co-operate with each other because that’s their job……to protect us. That is actually the PRIMARY job of government according to the Constitution. I find it impossible to believe that I actually have to beg you to allow our Sheriff to do the job he took an oath to do.

I’ve worked extensively with American born minorities who are against illegal immigration. I’ve spent time in their communities. So, if illegals are less likely to commit crimes, as your committee has asserted in the past, why do all the houses and businesses in their communities have bars on the windows and doors and high fences around their property? The truth is that minority communities are those most likely to be victims of illegal alien criminals.

Jamiel Shaw Sr. is my friend. I’ve been a guest in his house and I’ve seen where his son was shot dead a few feet from his home by an illegal alien who SHOULD have been turned over to ICE. In fact I’ve met dozens of people from the Remembrance Project who have lost loved ones to illegal aliens.

Let me use the argument our representatives use when imposing unrealistic gun regulations on law abiding citizens, “if it saves one life it’s worth it”. Well, if it saved Jamiel Shaw or Kate Steinle or the thousands of other victims of illegal aliens to turn their killers over to ICE, it would be worth it.

I firmly support the Sheriff co-operating with ICE, and all law enforcement agencies. No one is asking Sheriffs to round up illegal aliens. But we ARE asking them to co-operate with ICE. You said you didn’t want Sheriffs to provide back up for ICE. But why wouldn’t they? They provide backup for the FBI. I’ve never seen law enforcement agencies unwilling to back each other up. You also said you don’t want ICE to have access to illegal aliens records that are not public record. Why are illegal aliens records not public? American citizen’s records are? Not co-operating with ICE puts us all in jeopardy. I’ve been dumbfounded by how hard your committee has worked to protect illegal alien criminals and prevent Sheriff McDonnell from doing the job we WANT him to do, enforce the law.

Finally, the last hand out I gave you was former Colorado Governor Lamm’s speech, “Eight Steps to Destroy America”. It was supposed to be a warning but, apparently, it became a guideline. I challenge you to read it and honestly consider what those steps have done to this country.

Thank you.”

There were the three members of the Ad-Hoc Committee in the room as well as several other people, I assume were staff. The members were very polite and there were several points I made they seemed to take notice of. Several nodded when I said American citizens have no representation. They also seemed to pay attention when I said California went from the Golden State to the poverty capital of the country.

While we can always hope our words will influence some of them, ultimately, I doubt it will cause them to change their recommendations. We can hope the Sheriff will file their recommendations in his circular file and continue to do what he wants to do, what he promised to do, enforce the law and protect us from criminals.

Many, many Christians and Jews are Democrats. I constantly wonder why. Some of the most actively religious people I know, who go to worship every week and can quote scripture, are from the Black, Latino and Jewish communities. “Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God”. I don’t understand how you can obey God and vote Democrat so I have to ask Christian/Jewish Democrats to seriously consider the following and explain how you reconcile them.

I want to ask you……what party is actively removing religion from the public square, schools and politics. What party was for slavery? Do you know not a single Republican owned a slave? Who supported Jim Crow laws? The KKK was the military arm of what party? What party supported segregation? What was the party of the Governor who stood in front of schools to prevent Blacks from entering? What party fought against civil rights for a hundred years?

I keep wondering how Christians and Jews can keep voting for an ideology that supports teaching Islam in our schools? Allows Muslim prayer in our schools but not Christian prayers? That supports making criticism of Islam a crime? How do Christians and Jews support an ideology that wants abortion any time for any reason? That supports Planned Parenthood that sells aborted baby parts? How do Christians and Jews reconcile that with their faith?

What ideology has removed civics, the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem from schools? What ideology supports multi-genders, unisex bathrooms and locker rooms? Who supports teaching transgender and homosexual lifestyles as normal to kindergarten children? What ideology is teaching our children about anal and oral sex in grade school? Who is sexualizing our children and then accusing those who act on it of sexual abuse? What ideology supports punishing people who believe marriage is between a man and a woman?

What ideology believes in anthropogenic global warming even though there has been no warming in 23 years? Who wants to return us to pre-industrialization? Wants to ration our use of energy and water? What ideology is forcing us off our private property and wants us all to live in apartments? Wants us out of our cars? And is willing to use punishment, high taxes and regulations to FORCE us out of our cars, homes, farms and ranches? Who shut off water to the San Joaquin Valley and turned green, bountiful farmland into dust?

Who was for the European Union and the North American Union (precursors for One World Government)? What ideology is for Global Governance? What influence do you think you’d have on policy if there is global governance? What “angels” do you think would rule? And if you didn’t like it, where would you go? Who wants no nation states, no patriotism, no sovereignty? Who wants to allow Sharia courts? What party wants amnesty along with open borders that will bring more illegal immigration? When we are becoming a technological economy and don’t need more unskilled workers, why would we bring in more? What party supports replacing skilled American workers with H1B visa workers?

What party has allowed violent protestors to destroy, loot, and burn property? Has told police to “stand down” and allow protestors to beat those who disagree with them? Who supports Occupy Wall Street? AntiFa? Black Lives Matter? Who refuses to accept Michael Brown was the aggressor in Ferguson even though the Holder Department of Justice and FBI investigated Ferguson and found that to be true?

What party created the Department of Education that dumbed down our education system, The War on Poverty that has spent trillions and not lowered the percentage of poor, The War on Drugs that has also spent trillions to no effect, Welfare that has destroyed minority families? What party removed Social Security from it’s “lockbox” and want to give it to illegal aliens who have donated nothing to it? Who calls Social Security an “entitlement” when it’s really a pension system WE contribute to?

What party is actively censoring speech they don’t agree with? What party is calling the truth “hate speech”? Is Liberal speech being censored? Have Republicans rioted to prevent Liberals from speaking on College Campuses? Are Liberals being banned from Twitter and Facebook? Are Muslims? Democrats used to be passionate Free Speech advocates. No more. Why is that OK with you?

What party prides itself on being for “women’s rights” but supports Islam under which women have no rights. Under Islam women are subjected to genital mutilation, must cover themselves, can’t drive or work or go to school without permission. Can’t leave the house without male relatives. Can’t get a divorce and have no right to their children.

What party prides itself on being the party of tolerance, inclusiveness and diversity? Yet, not diversity of thought, inclusive of White people, or tolerance of opposing opinions? What is the party of those who decry White Privilege and discredit everything White people have done as evil? What is the party of identity politics?

What party is taking more and more of your rights from you? What party is making energy too expensive to use? Who will be hurt the most from this? Who is making it too expensive for low income people to own a car? The elites of your party will still have all the energy they want and own cars, but you won’t.

I understand the temptation to want one party rule if it’s your party, but do you really? Look at California. For all intents and purposes we have a dictatorship. Half of us have no seat at the table and our legislature doesn’t care what we think or want. That is exactly what our founders didn’t want. They wanted everyone to have a voice. Everyday our legislature passes laws that take our liberty and impose punishments on us for behavior they disagree with. Certainly you see the value of having two parties. One party to reign in the other. Neither being able to disenfranchise the other.

I’d like to ask you, when have your representatives fought harder for anything than they are fighting to protect illegal aliens? How does it benefit YOU to have criminal illegal aliens protected from deportation? Just before Christmas Governor Brown pardoned two illegal alien criminals so they wouldn’t be deported. He pardoned 132 criminals and commuted 19 sentences of illegal aliens. Why are criminals being protected? Would you be?

I sincerely ask how Christian and Jewish Democrats reconcile their religious beliefs with the policies of those they vote for.

How do I describe this movie? What is it’s genre? Fantasy? Sci-Fi? Action? Romance? Horror? Musical? Film noir? Spy movie? Comedy? Umm, yes to all.

This film was nominated for seven Golden Globes a few days ago, so I went to see what all this adoration was about. Hmm, how can I describe it? I think they are marketing it as a romance but I find it difficult to wax poetic about the Creature From the Black Lagoon entwined with a naked Adrian from Rocky I. Sally Hawkins could be Talia Shire’s clone. There are some very violent bloody scenes, several horror scenes, many really cringe worthy scenes (like the Pie Guy, or when the creature eats the cat’s head or Michael Shannon’s gangrene fingers) and then there is the scene where the creature and his love, Elisa, break into dance ala Fred and Ginger.

Michael Shannon is a wonderfully creepy evil villain. His wife, a bawdy Mrs. Cleaver, is quite a piece of work and their “love” scene will give you nightmares. Just about everything Michael Shannon does in this movie makes you want to take a shower.

My favorite, Nick Searcy, is always a treat as the evil General who wants the “asset” autopsied. Richard Jenkins, in his slipping toupee and love of pie is the comic relief but also the sad sack loser. Then there are the Russian spies with sub-titles.

Bradley Whitford, in an uncredited role, plays a bumbling colleague of Shannon’s. Octavia Spencer plays Elisa’s talkative friend. I keep wondering if there’s a law in Hollywood that every movie has to have either Octavia Spencer or Samuel Jackson in their film. Fine actors but……..seriously?

Throughout the movie there is a theme about “green”. Green jello, green key lime pie, Shannon’s green candy, green car, and his wife’s green desert.

I find it interesting that so many of the films that win Academy Awards or Golden Globes are not movies we’d care to see again.
