Biblical plagues afflict Middle East

January 19, 2019

Exodus revisited?

This linked video documents that locusts have invaded the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Another separate video shows raging, torrential floods and oversized hailstorms taking their toll on Middle East residents, washing away passenger-filled cars. Violent winds, destroying buildings, massive trees and toppling large trucks have also hammered the area. Watch all five minutes to see the full extent of the cataclysmic devastation. 

Now the U.K.’s Mirror reports a “biblical” sandstorm has turned Egypt’s capitol city of Cairo, orange. Government officials are warning residents to stay indoors to avoid respiratory problems. The bizarre event, including strong winds and rough seas, has forced the closure of major ports.

So far, as in the biblical account of the ten plagues that afflicted Egypt —- vividly described in the book of Exodus —- the rivers have not yet turned to blood. But an omnipotent voice appears to be speaking from above.

Uh oh…Pres. Trump’s polling has tanked

January 15, 2019

Republicans are warned that Donald Trump will lead them into the political wilderness.  It’s a repeat of the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, when all of the cultural elite asserted with absolute certainty (video) that Donald Trump would never be president.

They were, of course, off by a country mile.

The current polls are reflective of the relentless multi-pronged, media-driven, crusade against President Trump. Those who know little and read even less, are easily swayed and bullied into thinking that the man who was buoyed by a populist wave into the White House has somehow fallen short. 

He hasn’t.

To the delight of his base, President Trump is delivering on his campaign promises. Joblessness is at historic lows, the economy is surging, he has appointed two U.S. Supreme Court justices, with another in sight. His unprecedented inroads with North Korea have been monumental. The Dems are smarting, bruised and broken.  They are also enraged that that “sure thing Hillary,” endorsed by the majority of nation’s editorial boards — including the leftwing Arizona Republic, not only lost, but suffered massive nationwide losses.

Further evidence of the dismal shape the Democrats find themselves in, is shown by the socialists who are gaining dominance in the party that once appealed to many of our patriotic parents and grandparents.  Renown economics professor Dr. Walter Williams, succinctly compares Capitalism to Socialism.

It is the far left educrat unions that are responsible for failing to educate American students in the realities of the disastrous system. Preceding the midterm elections, Investor’s Business Daily ran this editorial, “Millennials May Love Socialism, But Socialism Won’t Love Them Back.“

Millennials supported Socialist Bernie Sanders for president in shockingly high numbers.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Socialist trounced a ten-term incumbent Democrat congressman in New York by courting minorities and the youth vote with slippery deception and technology rather than traditional campaign strategies.

Republicans must regard these phenomenons as instructive, rather than dismissing them as anomalies. America’s future depends on it.


Mealy-mouthed Lindsey undermines Pres. Trump

January 14, 2019

Lindsey Graham, a dedicated McCain loyalist, can’t figure out which way he swings without his good buddy to accompany him down the dark senate corridors, while whispering not-so-sweet nothings in his ear.

Just days ago Graham was stepping out in a fit of pseudo boldness, advising President Trump to hang tough and not cave to the petulant Pelosi and unscrupulous shakedowner Schumer. In this statement, Graham advised Pres. Trump, “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier. It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Now he advises Trump to cut a deal with the intransigent leftists.

Appearing onFox News Sunday,” (video) Graham urged the president to reopen the partial government shutdown for three weeks to allow lawmakers to negotiate.

Talking out of both sides of his mouth, Graham said, “It really does perplex me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the United States, you can’t get $1 for a wall when in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. What’s he supposed to do, just give in? He’s not going to give in.”

Then in the next breath, Graham pressed Trump to do exactly that, saying, “I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time — like three weeks — before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal. If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off — see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”

As Graham pursues an agenda markedly different from the conservative, Trump-supporting base — pushing the farcical DACA and expanded Temporary Protected Status currently estimated to exceed 400,000, it’s important to remember exactly who Lindsey Graham is.

In July 2015, Graham called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump a “jackass” during an interview on CNN. By December, Graham suspended his lifeless presidential campaign, due to lack of support and dismal polling and quickly endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. When it became clear Donald Trump would be the Republican presidential nominee, Graham, emulating McCain and joined by Flake, announced that he would not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton, stating on CNN, “I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him.”

Graham is obviously not someone Pres. Trump can rely on. His advice is worthless. With friends like Lindsey Graham, who needs enemies?


Odd border comparisons underscore news dishonesty

December 27, 2018

“Mormon migration” was never illegal. LDS settlers were American citizens

The local newspaper is up to its trickery again. This one is so bizarre readers can be excused for wondering when the punch line was coming, thinking it was a gag —- as in funny story, not retch. April is months away, but this could have passed as the intro to an April Fools’ joke.

The Arizona Republic is simply reprising its old antics, but with a new twist. The difference between illegal aliens invading and Americans relocating is clear.

Reporter Dustin Gardiner begins his article about a proposed bell monument with these words:

Tens of thousands of Arizonans trace their roots in the state back to a mass migration of Mormon settlers, who made a harrowing journey from Utah over a century ago.

They walked hundreds of miles, through rugged desert and winding red-rock canyons. The most perilous portion of the journey came when they crossed the Colorado River, then a raging force without dams. At Lees Ferry, the only safe crossing between Utah and Arizona for hundreds of miles, they ferried or floated countless wagons and livestock across the untamed river.

They made the fraught journey in search of fertile farmland and new opportunity, directed by leader Brigham Young. Many had already fled religious persecution in the Midwestern United States. Today, the legacy of that migration can be seen throughout eastern and southern Arizona, where they established communities like Mesa, Gilbert, Safford and Snowflake.

It’s the sixth paragraph where the bell, being considered for a state monument, is described as being used at the Lee’s Ferry schoolhouse.

The obvious scheme is to entice readers to make the comparison to thousands of Guatemalans, Hondurans, and El Salvadorans caravanning from Central American through Mexico to breach the U.S. border, waving flags of their native countries and hurling rocks and bottles at ICE border agents as they stampede our border. Make no mistake, the magnet is birthright citizenship.

Drawing parallels between Mormon settlers and illegal aliens is the driving farce of this force — not a typo. The Mormons were Americans. There is a vast difference between invaders and Americans moving from one place to another. Facilitating moves within your own nation is how the Schoen family who founded the U-Haul trailer and truck rental empire became billionaires.

It’s easy to envision members of the open borders editorial board thinking this comparison was nothing short of sheer brilliance, especially on the heels of U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez’ (D-IL) sneering rant (brief video) comparing the birth of the Christ child to illegals, though he admittedly had his facts skewed. He then rudely walked out of the hearing before the response from U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.

The AZ Republic, which inventively used the word “seekers” in place of the overused and erroneous “migrant,” in a recent front page headline, gets it wrong again.


Jeff Flake’s chronic illness confirmed

December 21, 2018

In his final days in the U.S. Senate, Jeff Flake has been less inclined to mask the malady that has long plagued him, but he initially went to extraordinary lengths to conceal. Now his terminal case of RINOitis is revealed for all to see, characterized by fluent aphasia symptoms.

Trump-hater Flake, who wouldn’t risk the embarrassment of running for reelection due to an unprecedented, bottom-dragging 18% approval rating in his home state, is not going quietly.  Nope. He’s after payback.

Following the example of his mavericky aisle-hopper McMentor, Flake is once again teaming up with Delaware Democrat Chris Coons. This time the dynamic duo are working to impose a carbon tax on energy companies for carbon dioxide emissions. Flake solemnly states, “Republicans need to get serious about climate change.”

Both the House and Senate versions would impose a tax of $15 per ton of carbon dioxide in 2019, increasing $10 each year, rising to nearly $100 per ton by 2030. The legislation includes a component to rebate savings back to households to compensate for higher energy costs.

What is not advertised is that the rebate is a classic redistribution of wealth scheme, beloved by newly elected U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who was endorsed by the Democratic Socialist party. She will be sworn-in as Flake exits, keeping them from partnering on future legislation. They would have made quite a team.

In the Flake/Coons version, low and middle income households would receive more in rebates than they pay in taxes, while higher income households would pay more than they receive.

Sounds like a plan —- if you think like Jeff Flake.

The Daily Caller headlines its earlier report,Jeff Flake will introduce bill to raise taxes before leaving senate.” It details how a carbon tax resulted in tens of thousands of protesters flooding the streets in France, causing the French government to ditch implementing its plan. 


Narcissist Jeff Flake continues to scam Republicans

November 30, 2018

Though nearly out the senate door due to embarrassing 18% approval ratings in his home state —- precluding even an arrogant egotist like the aptly named Flake from seeking reelection —- he nevertheless continues to act like a petulant child. By Spring of 2017, he was unable to garner enough supporters to fill a small room.

Lame duck Flake’s overriding obsession is hatred-driven. And the object of this scurrilous intensity is President Donald Trump, who is keeping his promises to the American people.  Unable to acknowledge the numerous accomplishments of the man he predicted would never be elected, Flake throws tantrums and engages in reckless, destructive actions. 

Flake has now chosen to act on his threats of stalling confirmations of the well-vetted federal judicial candidates, including six conservative Trump nominees to the Circuit Court and 15 others named to the District Courts. Flake did no such thing while his travel and basketball playing buddy Barack Obama occupied the Oval Office. Flake even worked double-time to get Obama’s last minute U.S. Supreme Court Democrat appointee, Merrick Garland, confirmed —- a task at which he fortunately failed. His latest foolish issue is having confirmations tied to a vote on a bill to protect Robert Mueller’s baseless Russia investigation, which has produced not a single shred of evidence implicating the president or his family. Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called the bill, “a solution in search of a problem,“ although that logic fails to deter Flake.

Jeff Flake, like his mentor John McCain, had no trouble using the Republican party to get elected. They talked a good game while campaigning, but once safely back on the banks of the Potomac, they veered left, frequently colluding on issues such as amnesty for illegals with the most radical D.C. liberals. McCain forged alliances with Ted Kennedy, Dick Durbin and Charles Schumer, among others. Flake is partnering on this legislation with Delaware Democrat Chris Cooms. Flake’s neurotic loathing is so insidious President Trump’s historic achievements, such as being the first U.S. President in nearly 70 years to meet with the leader of North Korea and sign a treaty to denuclearize the volatile Korean peninsular —- are of no consequence to the chronically angry, self-absorbed, show-boating Flake.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Flake is a member, canceled a Thursday vote on over 20 federal judicial nominations The Judiciary panel, with a slim 11-10 GOP majority, doesn’t have sufficient votes to advance nominees without his support. The new congress will be sworn in Jan 3, 2019.

It’s difficult to imagine that Kyrsten Sinema, the leftist Democrat who will replace Flake in the U.S. Senate, could be any worse.


The border. The invasion. The wall. The truth.

November 26, 2018

Standing firm with President Trump on the border

Let’s get this straight.  An estimated 7,000 Central Americans, with thousands more expected, are claiming they are leaving their homelands due to dire conditions and are seeking asylum. Traveling in what are described as caravans, they have passed through Mexico, without asking to be allowed to stay there. It’s America they desire, as they are lured by our taxpayer funded goodies (shocking news video). American citizens are being fed a continual diet of deceit and contrivances about these folks often referred to simply as “migrants.” The accurate descriptive wordsillegal aliens” are now considered pejoratives.

Their desire to be Americans is so great, the mostly young men brandish their own national flags and defiantly hurl rocks at the U.S. Border Patrol agents, boldly displaying their deep desire to enter our country and become acculturated. To gain access, they are now storming the border en masse. Criminals have been found among these sterling folks.

Assimilation is not their goal, nor is asylum, or they would have asked for it when entering Mexico. Overrunning Tijuana, creating havoc and skyrocketing costs to sustain them there, the Mexicans who live in the city are marching in the streets protesting the Central American invaders who are funded by activist organizations and globalist billionaire George Soros. He has long supported Chicago-based La Familia Latina Unita. (Bill O’Reilly video.)

Yet when President Trump declares he will permanently shut down the border if the human avalanche continues across our border, he is derided as lacking compassion.

The political component is all too clear. Radical Democrats want to ensure a borderless society and a permanent leftist voting bloc. The leftwing media vilifies President Trump, and the soon-to-be-installed Democrat House majority is chomping at the bit to bring him down.

The rest of us, those who comprehend the ugly realities, are all too aware that among the left and at universities across our nation, celebrating illegals is the new chic craze. Even following the senseless murder of Kate Steinle shot while walking along the San Francisco pier with her father, the word “deportation” is never uttered, although the Mexican national shooter with a criminal history was previously deported five times. He was acquitted in the murder trial. And across the bay in Oakland, the Democrat mayor has been cheered for warning illegals in advance of ICE raids.

We live in a time when there are no penalties for lawlessness and schools indoctrinate our students to the point where elderly Socialist Bernie Sanders was a big 2016 hit with millennials who lack historical knowledge of its failed regimes. Devoid of understanding, they prefer socialism to capitalism. (Set aside time for this instructive video.) Businessman President Trump deserves our support for his efforts to keep American safe and in the capitalistic realm.
