A woman president at any cost?

A female acquaintance of mine mentioned recently that she is supporting Hillary Clinton for president because "it's time we have a woman for president." My question is, why do we need a woman for president? Are today's women in such need of validation that they would support any female for president despite how corrupt and dishonest she is? How would having a female president change any woman's life? And how could a woman as dishonest and corrupt as Hillary Clinton be any kind of positive role model for women?

Of course when I asked this woman what she thought about how Hillary Clinton treated the 12 year-old rape victim, or what she thought of Clinton accepting millions of dollars from Middle Eastern countries that disrespect and abuse women, the money laundering she orchestrated through her husband's speaking engagements, or what she thought about Hillary's severe national security breach with her personal email server, or Hillary's cold dismissal of concerned family members of the murdered victims in Benghazi, the woman had no clue of these things.

But hey, as long as we have a female president, this acquaintance of mine is convinced her life will be better. She is not aware of Hillary's promise to raise taxes (or that, as US Senator, Hillary voted twice to raise taxes on the middle class). This woman is not aware that Hillary promises to silence all religious objection to morally reprehensible actions like abortion and euthanasia. This woman is not aware of Hillary's refusal to support closing our borders against vicious terrorists, or that Hillary, as president, would likely be recommending Supreme Court justices based on her personal ideology rather than their adherence to the Constitution. 

But she is convinced our country needs her and that women, in particular, need her. The conversation with this woman reminded me of something I have repeatedly noticed over the years: whenever I meet someone who is completely uninformed about things they always default to the Democrat/left side of the political aisle. I have never met an ignorant person who defaults to the conservative side. 

Typical of Hillary supporters, this particular woman was well versed in the pro-Hillary pop-media soundbites but woefully uninformed about the real Hillary. I personally have no problem with a female president - but I don't need a woman president, and if we do ever get one, I do care about what kind of person she is. How sad that so many women have been convinced that they need validation as women at all, let alone validation by the unfortunate likes of Hillary Clinton.

These Catholic school students have the right idea...watch

Just wanted to share a simple reminder that when we remove God from the public square, we get the evil we're seeing today. But when we remember that God is still with us, we see what we need to do.

Watch this short video - the message is so simple, it's brilliant. 

Have a blessed day!

Time for LGBT community to recognize real hatred

After unleashing the worst terror attack on American soil since 9/11, the Orlando terrorist's terrorism was, not surprisingly, watered down by the Left in favor of another culprit: gun violence. Of course, liberals are blaming guns because they don’t have anything else to blame. The shooter was a fundamentalist Islamist, as he himself admitted in one of his calls to 911 that day, and his actions were nothing less than a brutal act of terrorism.

However, the Left cannot acknowledge such a thing because they refuse to identify the enemy. President Obama could barely contain himself in his press briefing earlier today as he mocked those of us who demand we recognize Islamist terrorists as a very real and deadly problem.

Obama tried to tell us today that we are winning the war against ISIS/radical Islam, while saying the real problem we need to address is anti-muslim sentiments and the availability of assault guns. 

Our president either has no idea or is simply unconcerned with the fact that we are dealing with an ideology that isn’t just religious, but political and cultural. As for whether the Orlando terrorist specifically targeted a "gay bar" or chose it randomly, Obama doesn't seem to see or care about the connection that some in the Middle East --in the name of Islam -- do routinely execute homosexuals by various means, including tossing them off buildings with their arms tied behind their backs.

In other words, if the Orlando shooter's target wasn’t random but chosen because it was a club full of individuals whom he believed should be put to death, then obviously this was not a random act of violence. This was not a “mass-shooting” in the way of Sandy Hook. This was not a “hate crime” in the typical sense of the phrase. This was an act of war against western culture by a very different, radical, deadly ideology.

Still, posts on social media keep repeating the same wrong notion: That this wasn’t because of "radical Islam", it was an act of hate. But if that's all it was, then it was an act of hate because of the terrorist's ideology that taught him to hate homosexuals (and for the record, I am not saying all Muslims hate homosexuals or support putting them to death. I am saying to pay attention to a certain established radical Islamist ideology regarding treatment of homosexuals).

While so many on the Left continue pointing fingers at Christians, accusing us of being hateful bigots toward the LGBT community, they remain silent about a culture that actually does exhibit hate toward homosexuals, as exhibited by the fact that in some Middle Eastern countries, homosexuals are put to death for the stated crime of being gay.

Ted Cruz put it very well when he said: “For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians. ISIS and the theocracy in Iran (supported with American taxpayer dollars) regularly murder homosexuals, throwing them from buildings and burying them under rocks. This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it…

If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.”

Yet while the Left continues to claim it is the champion of the LGBT community, they blatantly ignore who the real enemy is. Hint: It's not Christians.

As for “sensible gun control”, other than complete confiscation, there is very little that can be done to control guns. How many times does it need to be stated that people intent on killing do not obey laws. The only thing gun control will accomplish is leaving law-abiding Americans unarmed in the face of terror.

We need to get real, as uncomfortable as it may be, and point the finger where it belongs. Burying our heads in the sand so we don't have to see reality will eventually invite that reality to come crashing down all around us. It's already begun, of course. 

The question is, at what point is our politically correct society willing to extract itself from the sand and acknowledge the hard, cold fact: Terrorists want us dead - all of us. It's time we all - homosexual, straight, liberal, conservative, ban together to defeat the real enemy. Turning on each other leads to nothing but our own peril.

Even leftist media disagree with CA bill that would silence pro-lifers

As reported by One News Now, “A pro-life advocate has concerns with California legislation to criminalize investigative reporting on abortion.

The bill, AB 1671, comes after David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood and other abortionists harvesting limbs and tissue from aborted babies that would allegedly then be sold for profit.

California lawmakers, backed by Planned Parenthood, now want to ban any reporting or recording of conversations with abortionists or other health care personnel "without the consent of all parties to the communication."

‘If this bill were to become law, it criminalizes even media who is reporting on and disseminating in any way that footage,’ says Lila Rose of Live Action. ‘So it's basically a freeze on the freedom of speech, and freedom of the press in California, if this bill goes into law.’

It is such a serious violation of constitutional rights that Rose says even secular news organizations are openly protesting the legislation.

‘It's interesting to see the mainstream folk, even self-identified pro-choice journalists, are decrying this bill,’ Rose says. ‘It is a clear attack on anybody who's trying to tell the truth about tax-funded abortion facilities.’

The legislation is dangerous for journalists and attacks the ‘free press principle of prior restraint,’ Thomas Peel, an investigative reporter for The Mercury News, wrote in a May 18 op-ed

He cited a 1971 U.S. Supreme Court case over the Pentagon Papers that ruled the ‘government cannot pre-censor news organizations or otherwise halt or criminalize publication.’

While praising Planned Parenthood, Peele admitted the abortion giant is the bill's ‘main supporter’ in the state.

Rose thinks that it just goes to show the fear that abortion facilities experience.

‘They know they're doing horrific crimes against humanity,’ she says, ‘and they're trying to keep that covered up and hidden from the public.’

Live Action has, for several years now, released undercover videos of mostly Planned Parenthood facilities pushing abortions on underage girls, even coaching them on how to protect their legal age molester.'

How sad that we have fallen to the state of protecting the murderers and prosecuting the victims or those who try to protect the victims. One can disagree with this all they want, but the truth is the truth.

Obama: Beware of climate-change hurricane devastation!

President Obama has called for every American to put together a disaster supply kit and evacuation plan because “climate change” is bringing “more powerful and more devastating” hurricanes to the US – even though the US hasn’t been hit with a major hurricane in more than a decade.

Announcing the June 1 start of hurricane season, Obama warned Americans to prepare for imminent climate change-caused hurricanes:

“All of us have seen the heartbreak, the damage and, in some case, the loss of life that hurricanes can cause.  And as climate continues to change, hurricanes are only going to become more powerful and more devastating.

“One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster.  And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit.  If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don't wait.”

Obama chastised Americans for their “complacency,” and told them to be ready to evacuate when the storms hit:

“And what we've been seeing is some public complacency slipping in; a large portion of people not having preparedness kits, not having evacuation plans. We've been stagnant a little bit with respect to the number of people, the percentage of people who respond to an evacuation order. All that has to pick up, because we want to make sure that, although it's hard to prevent property damage, that we are doing everything we can to prevent loss of life.”

There’s even an app to help Americans prepare for the destruction to come, Obama said:

“If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, we've got an app for everything now. We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster.”

Meanwhile, the US has now gone a record 127 straight months without a major hurricane making landfall – and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a “near normal” Atlantic hurricane season this year.

For the past ten-plus years, “normal” has meant no major hurricanes, so “near normal” suggests the US will remain safe from so-called climate-caused hurricane devastation.

But, be prepared, because it is coming, Obama warns just the same.

Unfortunately, this is just another of Obama's many lies. There are no studies that show, by empirical evidence, that humans (mostly CO2 emissions), have ever been the primary cause of global warming. None.

In fact, US satellite data sets show that there has been no global warming in the past 18+ years despite increasing CO2 emissions during this period. If CO2 emissions were a direct and significant cause of global warming, we would have experienced global warming during the 18+ year pause. We did not.

The hypothesis that humans are the primary cause of global warming is simply not supported by empirical evidence. The hypothesis is based on computers which overemphasize CO2's role in climate change and de-emphasize the role of clouds, solar cycles, ocean cycles and other natural causes of climate change. These computers have been notoriously wrong almost all of the time (when compared to real world data).

Computers that model an imaginary planet and are programmed with guesses of a few of the many variables affecting climate are not data or empirical evidence. Ninety-eight percent of the climate models relied upon failed to predict the 18-year and eight-month pause, and their projections of future temperatures during the last 20 years substantially exceeded the actual temperatures during this period.

Don’t we have more important things to worry about than a phantom increase in temperatures? I for one care about millions of un-vetted people flooding our open borders. I do care how messed up my healthcare is now and how my out of pocket expenses have skyrocketed. I do care that the GDP the last quarter was measly at best, looking like another recession could be looming. I do care that children are being used as pawns of indoctrination to unhealthy lifestyles by an out of control leftist culture. I do care about the exorbitant energy costs and strangling regulations set to be unleashed on Americans in the name of “climate control”. I do care that reality is being shunned in favor of fantasy.

Is there any reasonable person left on the left who wants to allow truthful scientists to have a say in the data being used in the computer models that predict (wrongly, over and over) the doom and gloom of this planet? I do. What does the left have to lose... except its control over all of us?

If the leftist climate alarmists truly want to 'save the planet' then they should allow other points of view into the discussion - and the data- used in making climate predictions. The fact that the left won't allow non-global warming believers into their research proves their objectives have less to do with the planet and everything to do with their agenda. What a monumental fraud they have perpetrated on us.

Remembering and thanking our veterans

The kick off of Memorial Day weekend is associated with the unofficial beginning of summer. All over America the barbecues will be in full force as friends and family gather for some fun. But during this weekend - and especially today on Memorial Day itself - let's remember what the day is really about: The heroes who have willingly and bravely fought for our country, who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives.

Without those willing to die for our freedoms, it's hard to picture what America would be. The sacrifices made by these men and women - and the sacrifices their families make - deserve our respect and full gratitude. So let's send a prayer of appreciation to those throughout our history who have served their country with their very lives.

God bless all our military men and women. May He keep you safe always.

One more reason to never shop at this store

When a young girl gets stabbed in a store, and a good samaritan literally jumps in to help, he is a hero, right? Not at Target. They are suing the good samaritan. You can see a video of the incident here along with an article on the details of the situation.

Should we be surprised though? This is the same store who doesn't care that women may have to share restrooms with grown men pretending to be women/transgenders to gain access to spaces that should be private. It should be no shock then to learn that Target executives don't think women should even be defended while they are being brutally stabbed.

How things change. It wasn't too long ago that the homosexual community demanded boycotts of Target because it was discovered the corporation had donated money to a conservative politician's campaign. Did the pressure not end there perhaps? Just what type of threats and bullying might Target be enduring to make them make such a drastic change in how they treat their customers?

Whatever may be going on behind the scenes, Target's actions depict a complete disregard for women, bordering on hatred. They love the money they get from women though. It's time to stop giving them a single dime.
