ROBERT SPENCER ON DEATH OF FREE SPEECH

The Santa Monica Republican Women Federated held their September monthly luncheon at the Beverly Hills Women’s Club due to the overwhelming response to speaker Robert Spencer and the subject, “The Left’s Jihad Against the Freedom of Speech”.

Those on the Right are acutely aware that our speech is being censored and silenced. As people arrived and gathered around tables, the talk was of how many ways our speech is being silenced.

Robert Spencer began by saying if he were to name the time we are living in he would call this “The Era of Absurdity”. We are being told to believe the unbelievable. Let’s begin with Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the Woman’s March where women wore “pussy hats” and “vagina” costumes. She recently gave a speech saying that before she started wearing the hijab, she was just a white woman from Brooklyn. But when she put on the hijab she became a woman of color. She now identifies as a Palestinian-American woman of color. Absurd.

Linda Sarsour (translated in Arabic is “cockroach”) describes the hijab as liberating. But how is a hijab liberating? The purpose of a hijab is to cover one of a woman’s more beautiful features so that they will be less attractive to men. In fact, Islam considers it a woman’s responsibility to cover herself so she won’t attract men. It is not a man’s responsibility to restrain his passions. Absurd and unjust.

The Left wants no restraints on immorality but embraces Muslim restraints on women. Again…….absurd.

Let’s examine the absurdity of identifying as a Palestinian-American woman of color. First, there has never been a “state” of Palestine, nor is there a Palestinian ethnicity. Those called “Palestinians” are from Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. In the 1960’s Yasser Arafat invented Palestine and Palestinians. Brooklyn born Linda Sarsour is saying she’s from a country that never existed and is a White woman of color.

Spencer said if you are Black, you don’t need to tell anyone you are, it’s obvious. He asked why anyone would pay attention to White people who say they are Black or a religion that says they are the religion of peace when…..they’re NOT? They need to keep reminding people because they’re worldview keeps conflicting with reality. Absurd, absurd, absurd.

In the absurd world where people accept that you are whatever and whoever you say you are, Robert Spencer said he is Linda Sarsour.

Spencer went on to describe how Conservative speech is being silenced. Spencer’s Facebook page, “Jihad Watch” normally had about 20,000 hits a day. All of a sudden it went down to 2,000 a day. The same has happened to many Conservative pages. Facebook had no answer to the drop.
Before this happened, if you googled “Jihad”, “Islam”, “Muslim” his page would be one of the first to come up, but that is no longer the case.
Spencer said Joel Kaplan, Vice President of Public Policy at Facebook, recently traveled to Pakistan and assured them Facebook would will remove fake accounts and explicit, hateful and provocative material that incites violence and terrorism.
https://www.jihadwatch.org/2017/07/facebook-vp-travels-to-pakistan-to-assure-government-it-will-remove-anti-islam-material

A California Imam recently called Muslims to kill and annihilate all Jews. https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/california-imam-calls-for-muslims-to-annihilate-the-jews

Facebook didn’t remove the video showing the Imam saying this. Apparently, Facebook doesn’t think that might “incite violence or terrorism” or offend “community standards”. However, Twitter said Spencer saying “Islam is not a religion of peace” was hate speech and deleted it.

“The Left is at war with reality”. Spencer said Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube have more control over speech than ANY government has EVER had. It started when Obama gave control of the internet to the United Nations. Let that sink in.

Spencer said we must not surrender, we must keep fighting. He said think of the blades of grass that poke through the concrete. BE A BLADE OF GRASS!!

SHERIFF’S CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

Last month I went to downtown LA for the Sheriff’s Civilian Oversight Committee meeting to support Sheriff McDonnell and his opposition to SB54 (Sanctuary State Bill).

The month before the committee had not said the Pledge of Allegiance because Rabbi Beth Chadashim objected to it as a violation of the separation of church and state. Mentioning God is in no way a violation. Our founders not only didn’t intend God to be banned from the public square, they began every public meeting with prayer. Today Congress begins their sessions with prayer. God is on our money and on many building and monuments all over Washington, D.C. The founders simply wanted to protect us from having government dictate that we practice a specific religion. Freedom of religion gives every citizen the right to practice the religion of THEIR choice or no religion at all.

Raul Rodriguez, Jr. from We the People Rising, objected to this ban and stood to lead the Pledge along with other attendees. The result is that the Committee now recites the Pledge at the beginning of their meetings.

Last month’s meeting they discussed police use of drones and sanctuary cities. For several hours we listened to dozens of people speak against the country and the Rule of Law. Most of the speakers talked about how selfish people who are against sanctuary cities were, how they had a right to be here because America illegally took the land from Mexico. Have they ever been told we won a war with Mexico, signed a treaty and paid Mexico for the land? OR that after winning the war, we could have taken over ALL of Mexico, but didn’t? One speaker said he was a teacher and he only spoke the truth but his truth didn’t match the actual evidence.

Megan Dowling spoke to the committee and read the statistics on illegal alien crime. The number of illegal aliens in prison, the number of murders, assaults, sexual abuse, robbery, etc. crimes committed by illegal aliens. Committee member Hernan Vera reprimanded Megan saying she could have her own opinion but not her own facts and that none of the statistics she read were true. Her statistics came from the FBI but she was not allowed to rebut his comments.

I spoke next and said that we have always been a country of laws, not men. I said if we don’t enforce laws or our border we have no country. I said Sanctuary Cities enabled crime. The tragedy in Texas where 18 illegal aliens died packed into a truck was caused by sanctuary cities. With the promise that Coyotes will get them to a Sanctuary City where they’ll be home free, they pay thousands of dollars to be brought to one.

I said I was sick of hearing what a terrible, selfish country America is. America is the most generous country in the world. We are the first to respond to natural disasters around the world, we give foreign aid tto other countries and we bring in twice as many LEGAL immigrants per year as ALL the other countries in the world combined. I asked if we were such a selfish, evil country, why are millions of people willing to risk their lives to get to America? We must return to the rule of law or we shall parish.

This month the Sheriff’s Oversight Committee moved the meeting to a Federal building in Pasadena where we weren’t allowed to have signs or take pictures or record any of the meeting which is in violation of the Brown Act. The Brown Act extends to the public the right to participate in meetings. Individuals, lobbyists, and members of the news media possess the right to attend, record, broadcast, and participate in public meetings.
Members of the public weren’t allowed to bring cameras into the meeting and if anyone used their cell phone camera, they were escorted out and not allowed back in unless they surrendered their phone or took it to their car.
The first thing the Committee did was to pass a resolution condemning Trump for telling the police to “not be too nice”. This was a very contentious meeting. At one point one of the Committee members shouted at a speaker, said he didn’t have to listen to this and left the room.

When I was able to speak I said the number one job of government was to protect us. When we see masked people in combat gear beating peaceful protestors with bicycle locks as police stand by, we are not being protected. I said I object to their characterization of Trump telling the police to “not be too nice” as encouraging inappropriate use of force. When masked people are beating others, breaking windows, destroying property, “not being too nice” IS the appropriate use of force. While they make broad assumptions about the President’s intentions, no such assumptions are made about the black geared, masked attackers. We need to return to the Rule of Law. How ironic it is that needs to be pointed out to a law enforcement committee.

I attend many public meetings. Townhalls, School Board meetings, SCAG (Southern California Association of Governments), City Councils, Sheriff’s Oversight Committee, as well as many others. What I’m struck by and still can’t accept is that, in general, our public officials are working against the Rule of Law, the Constitution and the Will of the People. Those of us who object are talked down to, smirked at, treated as if we are disobedient children.

The supreme goal of all of the meetings I’ve attended was to protect illegal aliens at all costs. I have to ask this, have you ever seen your representatives work as hard or as passionately to protect anything as they are to protect ALL illegal aliens? They make no distinction between your sweet nanny or gardener and criminals, gang members, sex trafficers, etc? They want ALL to have amnesty. ALL.

SERIOUSLY? TRANSGENDER KINDERGARTENERS?

I’ve avoided writing about this subject but I’m compelled to now.

At the Rocklin Academy in Rocklin, CA near Sacramento a first grader was sent to the principal’s office for using the wrong pronoun for a classmate? A FIRST GRADER? This is the same school that read kindergarteners “I am Jazz” and had a little kindergarten boy change into a dress and be reintroduced to the class as a girl. Where are the psychologists and pediatricians on this? A kindergartener has no idea what this means to their lives. This little boy may believe he should be the opposite sex but we’re talking about kids who believe in Spiderman, Batman, the Boogieman and Santa Claus. They live in a fantasy world at that age. They want to BE Batman or Katniss Everdeen. What, on earth, has happened to our schools? These children aren’t making a decision to change their gender, adults are.

Pediatricians will tell you MOST children who express a desire to be the opposite sex CHANGE THEIR MINDS by puberty. Surly teachers have seen examples of this. I certainly have. I can’t imagine the psychological damage we’re going to see in years to come. Even parents who aren’t inclined to “transition” their child are being pressured to. Why? Schools aren’t just accepting this, they are promoting it.

We ALL know children aren’t capable of making life changing decisions. Even when parents warn children not to talk to strangers they are likely to help a stranger find a lost puppy. We’re supposed to protect children from harm. Even teenagers aren’t capable of understanding how their behavior can affect their future. Anyone who has been the parent of a teenager knows they engage in many dangerous behaviors during those years. Changing gender shouldn’t be one of them. It’s a decision that should be made as an adult.

Let’s talk about what happens when a child is “transitioned”. They are put on hormones to bring out the characteristics of the opposite gender. One result of this is that they are now sterile. They can never have a child of their own. Do you think a kindergartener understands this? Another result is that the hormones prevent their genitals from maturing.

There is a TLC series, “I am Jazz” that is a reality show about a boy who is transitioning to become a girl. I imagine the intent of the show is for us to see how normal transgenders are but I think it has the opposite effect. Jazz’s family says she has wild mood swings. They have a hard time balancing the hormones Jazz is given. They talk about her not really having any friends. The friends she has on the show are other transgenders. But Jazz doesn’t have close girlfriends the way most teenaged girls do. And what should serve as a warning to parents who are considering putting their pre-puberty children on hormones is Jazz’s desire to have the “bottom surgery”. She has gone to several doctors on the show. Due to the hormone treatment, Jazz’s penis is infantile and there isn’t enough of it to fashion a vagina. The only solution is to use a section of the colon, which would not be aesthetically pleasing and would smell (sorry, but I’m quoting). Jazz is very concerned about this…..and she should be. She should be concerned that the adults she trusted did this to her before she could possibly understand the consequences.

I’m sorry if I offend transgenders but this is child abuse. Schools SHOULD be informing parents that MOST children change their minds by puberty. I don’t believe school administrators and teachers don’t know this. Parents starting their children on hormones will never know if their child might have changed their mind. Schools SHOULD be advising parents that this is a decision that should be made as an ADULT.

I find this subject extremely troubling. The Left is conducting a politically correct experiment on innocent, gullible, trusting children. Children too young to have any concept of what is being done to them. Children who, MOST likely, would have had a normal life if adults hadn’t made these decisions FOR them. These children are being sacrificed for a political ideology, not for psychological or medical necessity.

May I remind those who read this, that our institutions have been taken over by the Left. The media (nearly everyone who works for newspapers, networks & cable channels vote Democrat), Entertainment (try being an outspoken Conservative in Hollywood), Education (Liberal activist Professors, safe spaces, no civics, anti-Capitalism, hundreds of genders), and a large portion of government bureaucracies. When I ask why more parents, psychologists and pediatricians aren’t speaking out against transitioning CHILDREN, this is why. They’ll be shouted down, they’ll be called vile names and they might lose their jobs.

I don’t care, “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”, I will call this what it is, CHILD ABUSE.

I’M MADDER THAN HELL!

I am so angry! I’M MADDER THAN HELL! We knew the Democrats were liars, but now there is no doubt Republicans are too. We were PROMISED for the last seven years, given the chance, they would REPEAL Obamacare. John McCain didn’t just betray his state, where premiums have increased 190%, but he betrayed the entire country by being the deciding vote to NOT repeal Obamacare.

This is a perfect example of why government shouldn’t control our healthcare. We’ve ALL been waiting with baited breath to find our what the government is going to ALLOW us to have. Some say people will die without Obamacare although there is no evidence to support that claim. No one has died in the streets in this country. Many Republicans want to continue the Medicaid expansion as though that was the best solution. The truth is that people without insurance have better outcomes than people with Medicaid do. Medicaid rations care but few patients are aware of this because they aren’t told about a treatment if it isn’t covered.

Understanding that socialized medicine is about top down control NOT healthcare, I spent the last eight years working my butt off fighting against Obamacare. I traveled seven times to Washington to personally tell our representatives we didn’t want government control, we wanted the restrictions that prevented competition removed. I spoke to groups, I wrote articles, I wrote, called, emailed, tweeted the President, the majority and minority leaders, and members of Congress. The Republicans, EVERY ONE OF THEM, assured us the House held the purse strings and they would defund Obamacare if they became the majority. So, we gave them the majority in the House. What did they do? They funded Obamacare because they didn’t want a government shut down. They told us if they had the majority in the House AND the Senate, they could repeal Obamacare. What did they do? They said they couldn’t because they didn’t have 60 votes to override a veto. They told us they really needed a Republican President who would sign a repeal. And ALL but one (Susan Collins) voted for a full repeal, knowing Obama would veto it, to show us they were serious about repealing Obamacare. But they were lying.

We now know they never believed Donald Trump would win. They never believed they’d have to fulfill their promises. So they ALL ran on repealing Obamacare. And they LIED to us. At least a third of Republicans, if not more, WANT socialized medicine. The majority leaders make sure they have just enough votes to defeat a repeal so that they can provide cover for the others who also want to defeat a repeal. We still don’t know how many Republicans really support a repeal. But what we DO know now is that the Republican Party doesn’t care what we want. They care what lobbyists and donors want. There are a few members of Congress who have the courage to stand for what is right but they are way out numbered and are being shunned, criticized and primary-ed.

Republicans aren’t trying to do what’s best for the country. They aren’t even talking about programs like Medishare or the co-ops that are cropping up across the county where people pay $50/mo. for adults and $10/mo. for children that cover everything but catastrophic care. Broken bones, stitches, tests, labs, and medications at 95% less than anywhere else. WHY NOT?

Not repealing Obamacare will eventually result in single payer. Why don’t people understand single payer will NOT guarantee they will get the care they need? We have an example of single payer in the Veterans Administration. We have veterans DYING waiting to see a doctor. We have the VA hiding and destroying records so we can’t find out how serious the problem is.

England, proponents of single payer hold up as an example, doesn’t provide cancer treatment for those over 70, and just announced they wouldn’t provide hip or knee replacements to people who smoke or have a BMI over 30% (5’10” 180lbs would be denied) whatever their age. And if you go outside the system and pay for a treatment yourself, you will have to pay for all further medical care. You will not be allowed back in the system.

I often say I don’t understand why America’s previously shared values have changed so much. We ALL believed in self-determination and personal responsibility. We were fiercely independent. We defended free speech and were against censorship. But I DO understand what has changed. Over the last 30 years or more this country has had a constant flood of immigrants, legal and illegal, from 3rd world countries where the government determined how they lived. Many don’t share our values and too many are poor and uneducated. Unlike past waves of immigrants, the most recent have not been encouraged to assimilate or learn to speak English. They’re perfectly happy to have the government take care of them.

And now we see both Democrats and Republicans pushing for more H1B visas. Not only are unskilled American workers being replaced but educated, skilled Americans are being replaced as well. Our representatives on both sides of the aisle now represent legal and illegal immigrants and refugees over natural born American citizens. Think about it. They fight much harder to protect illegal aliens from deportation and award them more and more benefits than protecting us from harm.

I fear the Republicans will never repeal Obamacare. I doubt they will pass tax reform or fund the WALL either. I believe the establishment of BOTH parties can’t believe an outsider won and can’t allow him to succeed. The Washington establishment of both parties appear to be determined to destroy this President. And the Republican leadership apparently doesn’t care about keeping the majority. I think they are more comfortable being the minority. They could campaign on the principals they know we want and keep our support when they actually aren’t for those principals at all. When we see 24 Republicans voting to fund transgender surgery, including Darrell Issa, we can see how far the party has strayed. When there are veterans dying waiting for treatment and committing suicide for lack of care, it is completely irresponsible to fund very expensive ELECTIVE surgery that requires nearly a year to recover from.

The Republicans aren’t going to be able to put this genie back in the bottle. They’ve been exposed now. They can’t make false promises, that won’t work anymore. We ALL need to let them know we no longer believe or trust them.

My Mom Died Today

It’s not that this day was unexpected. Daphne was 98 years old after all. I actually thought she’d live to 100. She was in good health and her mind was sharp as a tack but she was ready, she told us often 90 was old enough.

And even though you know this day will come, and you think you’re prepared, you’re really not. No matter how old you are you want your parents in your life. You want their approval, their council and you want to share the special events in your life with them.

My Mom was a beautiful woman and a very talented artist. She wasn’t exactly your warm and fuzzy Mom or Grandma. For a big chunk of our lives she lived in Mexico and we saw her once or twice a year when she visited. One year when Tori was about 7 and Kim was about 12, Mom was coming for a visit and I told the girls to change their cloths because Grandma was coming to see them. They went to change and a few minutes later Tori came out of her room with a puzzled look on her face, she asked, “Have I ever met her?” I laughed and said, “Well, probably not that you’d remember”. I missed not having her in our lives then.

But when she came back to America and settled in Ventura I realized how much I appreciated having her in my life even now. Mom may not have been warm and fuzzy, but she was never dull.

Being an artist, Mom had a laser eye for details. When I was casting she sent me a lock of her hair and thought the makeup/hair people on the series I was working on might be able to make her sideburns she could glue on because she didn’t have hair in front of her ears anymore. But my favorite story is when she called me and told me I should buy an eyebrow pencil for Dr. Dennis because he’d be SO much more handsome with fuller eyebrows. I told her I couldn’t possibly do that. But not to be deterred, Mother made him a lovely card and sent it to him. On one side was a picture of him, on the other side, the same picture with thicker eyebrows. We couldn’t stop laughing.

We talked several times a week by phone. If it was first thing in the morning or dinnertime, I could be sure it was Mom. The dinnertime ones were slightly annoying, but now I miss those calls. She might have heard something Frances Swaggart Show she thought I should know or yet another reason Obama should be impeached. But she always ended with, I love you, and I can’t tell you how much that meant to me.

She was very proud of her children and grandchildren although sometimes we weren’t sure how proud. When Kim was graduating from High School Mom happened to be visiting from Mexico. We took her to a party to see the kids off to their prom. I had made Kim a fabulous pink silk taffeta outfit and she was so pretty. Kim introduced us to her friends parents. This is my Mom, Michael and this is my grandmother, Daphne. Mom whispered to me, does she have to say I’m her grandmother, couldn’t she say I was a friend. She was proud of Kim, she just hated people to know she had an 18 year old granddaughter.

She was very proud that Tori graduated with a science major. She never understood exactly what Tori did at her job but she knew it was scientific and that was impressive. She was so pleased to know Jackson and Hayden were champion Lacrosse players, that Hayden got such good grades and that Jackson won an award for his art. She said they inherited that from her.

And we all know how proud she was when Kim married Dr. Dennis. I’m not sure she remembered the names of the other men in the family after that. At family events at the Macaroni Grill, Mom’s favorite restaurant, she would have a seating chart. Usually she wanted Dennis next to her or across from her. Sadly, the Macaroni Grill is no longer with us either.

During the last years of her life, Mom insisted that any gifts for her had to come from the 99 cent store. Partly because she didn’t need anything and didn’t want us spending money on her but also because she thought the 99 cent store was genius and she wanted us to love it too. She was, in fact, on her way to the 99 cent store, list in hand, when she suffered her stroke. The ER nurse took her list out of her hand when she arrived. The ER nurse said she looked like a model. Dressed beautifully, hair and makeup perfect. When I left the hospital after visiting Mom, I looked across the parking lot and there it was, the 99 cent store.

I’m trying to process what life will be like without her. My mother was a grand dame with strong opinions. She was eccentric to say the least. Life without her won’t be nearly as interesting. Bye, Mom, Love you.

PLEASE WAKE ME!

Have you ever awakened from a nightmare feeling disoriented and not sure if it was real or not? That’s how I feel right now. I just left a Townhall given by Assemblymen Matt Dababneh (District 45) and Congressman Brad Sherman. It was standing room only, four or five deep.

I’ve never had a more difficult time sitting through a Townhall. I was crawling out of my skin wanting to run screaming or crying from the building. The event began with a lengthy talk from State Controller Betty Yee. She mentioned the people holding signs that said “Healthcare is a Human Right” and said she agreed. But there would need to be serious tax reform to pay for single payer healthcare. I was clearly outnumbered as the majority of the people applauded in agreement. These uninformed people want to impose the failing VA single payer system on all of us. About three quarters of the crowd were senior citizens that haven’t a clue it’s their healthcare that will be rationed, that sick people will flood into California for it’s “free healthcare” and overwhelm the system and that they will be waiting 6 months or longer to even see a doctor. And, of course, before you can say “healthcare” it will be over budget and out of control.

Controller Yee said tax reform would need to focus more on capital gains than payroll deductions. She said (and you will love this) that 40% of California’s state taxes are paid for by 7000 people. She said nothing about the other 38,993,000 paying their fair share. But she did brag about the earned income tax which gives about $6000 a year to low-income families.

She mentioned that she, Dababneh and Sherman were very opposed to Trump pulling out of the Paris Accord (to thunderous applause in agreement). She said how difficult it was to budget with the threat of the Trump administration pulling Federal funding from various programs. So, because the stock market was doing so well (why do they think that is?) they are putting money in the Rainy Day Fund as “Trump Insurance”. Again thunderous applause.

Congressman Sherman, with his permanent smirk, was up next. After 20 years in Congress, I consider him the poster boy for term limits. He congratulated Dababneh for being part of a state government that works (because it has a super majority and can run over the rest of us). He promised that the federal regulations Trump is rolling back, California will pass into state law.

He praised Dodd/Frank and promised to fight any attempts to change it because no bank should be too big to fail (thunderous applause). He fails to mention Dodd/Frank made the Big banks even bigger and denied small banks access to funds to loan small businesses. But we can rest easy, Brad Sherman is here to help. He proudly told the audience that he is sponsoring two bills, one to end Citizens United (but certainly not Union dues being used to fund Democrats) and one to end the Electoral College. Again thunderous applause.

If I wasn’t devastated enough he ended by saying never in our history, since Galileo, has science denying had such power. I’m sure he must be referring to those denying the science of gender. Gender is determined by DNA not wishful thinking.

Assemblyman Dababneh jumped up to heap praise on Sherman saying he was on the front line against the assault from the Trump administration.

He then went on to pat himself on the back for working to ensure his children will have the opportunities he had. He said he never loses sight that he works for us. He would fight against the Federal government trying to sell off our parklands to Big oil and developers (I picture Simon Legree twirling his mustache here). He is going to see that they provide more incentives for people to drive electric cars (read “force” them to). He is in full support of 100% alternative energy. (Ah, yes, instead of using and selling our ABUNDANT, CHEAP, EFFICIENT natural resources, let’s keep them in the ground and BUY expensive, unreliable solar panels and windmills that provide no income). Sadly, his children will not have the same opportunities he had if his vision is achieved.

He’s very proud that we will be having Cap and Trade and is concerned about Big farms and ranches being a greater threat to our environment than cars. As a vegetarian he thinks we should all eat more vegetables. Gee, do you think he’ll sponsor some legislation to see that we do? Why not?

One of my constant complaints at Brad Sherman Townhalls is that he doesn’t allow people to line up to ask questions. We have to have a number called or write questions on cards. This Townhall was even worse. An aide came up with cards and called out the names on the first five cards. They turned out to be either people who personally knew Dabaneh or were supporters. The first woman almost had the vapors telling him how wonderful he was. She was from Laguna but wanted to be an adopted constituent of his. Her Congressman, Dana Rohrabacher, was so awful. She didn’t have a question she just wanted to breathlessly thank him. The next woman also had no question. She knew Dababneh and had asked him to sponsor the bill that would outlaw pedigree dogs from pet stores. She just wanted to thank him also. Next was a member of a union who wanted to thank him for supporting green energy that was employing him and his union members. Next was a woman who asked him to sponsor a bill to reduce bail to help people who couldn’t afford to pay it. They didn’t have time for any more “questions”. I couldn’t get out of there faster.

On the way home I tried to think why this Townhall was so different. I’ve been to nearly all of Brad Sherman’s Townhalls for the last 8 years and they were usually very contentious. People yelling at him, booing, yelling at each other. Now everyone is applauding. I realized that when Obama was President, people who belonged to the Tea Party went to Townhalls to express their displeasure with what was happening. Now that Trump is President the Left is going to express their displeasure with what Trump is doing. They don’t understand Obama was taking their liberty from them and Trump is trying to give it back.

I don’t drink, but if I did, this would be the time to have a few.

“PEOPLE FOR THE AMERICAN WAY” SAY THE RIGHT IS CORRUPT, EXTREME AND LAWLESS

I’m on Norman Lear’s “People For the American Way” email list. Watching their heads explode is entertaining but every once and a while I just have to respond to what they are saying. Their recent missive said they were “fighting against Trump Republicans’ all-out assault on our constitutional rights and values – – the American Way.” They wouldn’t know what was Constitutional if it bit them and when did supporting Islam become the “American Way”?

The subject line of their email was, “CORRUPTION, EXTREMISM, LAWLESSNESS – WE CAN’T STOP FIGHTING”. The following was my reply:

Really? Do you have ANY ability to self-examine?

Corruption on the Right?? Did the Right conspire to ensure Bernie Sanders couldn’t win? Did the Right bus people to vote in different districts? Did the Right say you could keep your doctor and your plan? Did the Right go on five television shows to say Benghazi was caused by a video when they knew it wasn’t? Does the Right pay people to silence Conservative speech? Did the Right send debate questions to the candidate and indignantly deny it…..before admitting it? Did the Right set up an UNSECURED private server for the State Department putting classified information in danger and delete emails? The DNC is so corrupt Debbie Wasserman-Schultz had to resign. Do you really not know why you lost the House, Senate & White House? Or elections across the nation, Governorships, legislatures, etc?

Extremism? Since when did supporting the Constitution become “extreme? Since when did the Free Market become “extreme”? Since when did free speech become “extreme”? When did our sovereignty become “extreme”? When did not wanting our children indoctrinated become “extreme”? Telling our children there are more than two genders and gender is fluid is “extreme”. Taking away parental rights is “extreme”. Calling people who believe marriage is between a man and a woman (something the entire world believed for 2000 years) homophobes is “extreme”. Calling people who recognize Islam is not compatible with our culture Islamophobes is “extreme”. Calling people who want stop illegal immigration racist bigots is “extreme”. The Right doesn’t call people who disagree with them racist bigoted Islamophobic homophobes. They don’t silence people, they don’t harass sponsors. No, it’s the Left that is beating people with bicycle locks, burning cars & businesses, silencing people, and threatening to boycott sponsors unless they take Conservatives off television. THAT is “extreme”.

And Lawlessness? Where did the Constitution give Obama the authority to grant amnesty to illegal aliens? Didn’t he say 22 times he DIDN’T HAVE THE AUTHORITY? When were the laws against illegal immigration changed? I must have missed that. But it’s the Left (YOU) who is insisting we ignore our immigration laws. You who want Sanctuary Cities. That is the very definition of “lawlessness”. Where does the Constitution allow you to ignore laws you don’t like? Obama illegally made recess appointments. Invoked “executive privilege” to prevent investigation into Fast and Furious (that unlawfully allowed American guns to go to Mexican cartels). Obama changed rules regarding intelligence and unlawfully unmasked American citizens to allow the leaking of classified information. Congress passed (in bipartisan vote) DOMA, marriage is between a man and a woman, but Holder said he wouldn’t enforce it. Where does the Constitution give the DOJ that authority? How legal was it for the last DOJ to meet with Bill Clinton while his wife was under investigation? It’s the Left that supports Sharia law being recognized. Where does the Constitution allow two Rules of Law? Please explain how you support Sharia Law that gives women NO rights while supposedly fighting for women’s rights. Leftist Judges are actually helping illegal aliens avoid the law, where does the law authorized Judges to do that? Two illegal aliens raped a 14 year old girl but no charges were brought against them. When did rape become legal? I believe sex with a minor is illegal even if it’s consensual. It is the Left that is lawless.

You are projecting. You are accusing the Right of what the Left does in spades. You are harming this country and causing more division with your “extreme” claims. You need to do some “extreme” soul searching.
