Pope “slapped in the face” by Trump’s climate change exit

June 2, 2017

So let’s get this straight. The man who is the spiritual leader of the Catholic Church’s estimated 1.2 billion adherents, doesn’t have enough to keep him busy.  Meddling in American politics takes up time. He also dabbles in science. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which has hosted numerous international conferences on climate change, is not a fan of President Donald Trump. Previously discussing the Climate Change accord entered into unilaterally by Barack Obama without seeking senate authorization — and the likelihood that Trump would withdraw from the pact — Sanchez Sorondo said,  “If he really does withdraw, it would be a huge slap in the face for us.”

On Wednesday acting in the best interests of Americans, Trump did exactly that.

The Rome-based,  liberal, pseudo-scientific chorus has grown. This past March, Cardinal Peter Turkson, the pope’s point man for the environment, immigration and development, urged Trump to listen to “dissenting voices,” and reconsider his position on climate change.

Now that the U.S. has officially exited the Climate Change accords, Sanchez Sorondo said he believed the U.S. oil lobby was behind the decision and that the industry had “maneuvered” Trump. A withdrawal, said the Bishop “would not only be a disaster but completely unscientific.“ With sarcasm dripping from every word,  he asserted that “saying we need to rely on coal and oil is like saying that the earth is not round. It is an absurdity dictated by the need to make money.”

Vatican Inc. is a massive, wealthy business with astronomical assets, treasures, and its own political agenda.

The relationship between the pope, his minions and Donald Trump has been contentious since the conservative businessman first entered the presidential race. Pope Francis tried to bully Trump into submission on his campaign pledge to build a wall to secure our southern border, which the globalist pope claims to abhor — though he lives within the confines of Vatican City guarded by its own army of Swiss Guards, behind massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick walls surrounding the impenetrable Vatican fortress.

In Feb. 2016, the pope went so far as to claim the Republican front-runner, “Was not a Christian.” On a return flight to Rome from a trip to Mexico, the pope said: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Trump, at a campaign event, responded swiftly, saying, “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. No leader, especially a religious leader, has the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” Trump said.

Once again Donald Trump was right. He appears to be on a roll. His obligation to is America. The pope should stick to matters involving his own church.


Top Dem praises McCain’s efforts against Pres. Trump

May 15, 2017

If you’re a conservative Republican who has wondered whether “mavericky” Democrat colluder, John McCain has ever had a “finest hour,” wonder no more.

Democrat U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking minority member on the House Intelligence Committee, recently offered high praise for Arizona Republicrat John McCain, saying his strong criticism of President Trump marks McCain’s “finest hour.”

The Friday interview on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” can be seen on The Hill. Interestingly, YouTube advises the video has been removed.

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said during an appearance with Maher. “I wish we had more Republicans in the House, or maybe even one in the House, who is willing to follow his example.”

McCain has been adamant in his calls for an independent commission to investigate Russia’s purported efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, as well as the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Moscow. There is no evidence of either, but facts are insignificant to the still smarting, failed presidential candidate John McCain, who made it clear he would not vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump. McCain’s underling Jeff Flake also refused to vote for Trump, saying,Trump can’t win and shouldn’t win.”

Schiff used McCain’s words to pitch the need to reverse the Republican majority congress, stressing the importance of a Democrat controlled House or Senate or both because, “this president needs a restraint.”

McCain is obviously more than ready to help Democrat Schiff in his quest. And Jeff Flake? Arizonans should commit Flake’s six words to memory and apply them to him as he runs for a second six-year senate term in 2018. Arizonans deserve to have an actual principled Republican — not Hillary supporters — representing them when they vote for a candidate with an “R” following their name on the ballot.


Boorish grads boo U.S. Ed. Sec. Betsy DeVos

May 11, 2017

Commencement season brings with it prominent speakers to bestow words of wisdom on graduates as they leave the confines of academia and prepare to make their way in the world. In generations past, the speakers were greeted with cordiality as the eager college seniors looked forward to putting their years of education to good use.

Unfortunately, times have changed. Many students, such as those at U of Calif. Berkeley, are practiced rioters. Twelve previous years of El-Hi have inculcated them with massive doses of liberalism — five days a week, 180 days a year. Rioters are not alone.  There are now a substantial number of “snowflakes,” who react negatively to instruction or issues they disdain, needing safe spaces, soothing music, coloring books, puppies and hot cocoa to comfort them.

They are products of non-competitiveness, where everyone on the team gets a participation award, but there are no actual winners, or conversely, losers. The prospect of hurting a losing competitor’s feelings is too unbearable to comprehend. Graduates who are unable to speak grammatically correct English are indicative of the lack of time spent on communication skills. What American History is taught has been given a new slant along with factual revisionism. Americans are not world leaders who live in freedom, granted by a masterfully crafted Constitution that invokes a Creator. It is an aggressor nation that oppresses its citizens and exploits the environment.

Graduates are not likely to favor capitalism over communism, because they view the former as exploitive, though they have no real grasp on the issues. Many of them voted for Socialist Bernie Sanders. They refer to politicians they don’t like as “Hitler,” lacking any understanding of the atrocities committed by the Nazi Third Reich.

It is with this backdrop that U. S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, was scheduled to give the commencement address at Bethune-Cookman University — a historically black university in Daytona Beach, Florida on Wednesday.

DeVos was greeted with loud boos and turned backs as she reached the lectern to deliver her commencement remarks. As she spoke, she was booed, shouted at, and met with calls of “Go home!” from students and audience members. Minutes into her speech, the president of BCU, Edison Jackson, stopped her to address the disruptive students. Jackson said degrees would be mailed to students if their behavior continued. “Choose which way you want to go,” he said.

DeVos began again, but the toothless warning went unheeded as the boos increased.  She addressed some of the opposition to her speaking at the black university, asking for those critical of her to hear her out, voicing the Trump administration’s support for black colleges and universities. “We support you and we will continue to support you,” she said.

Business Insider reports that the weeks leading up to her speech were marked by vocal opposition by students, civil rights organizations, and Florida education groups, who claimed DeVos has no understanding of the history and significance of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs)

Parents often go into debt to provide the college education they believe to be the key to their children’s successful futures. But instead of being educated, they are being indoctrinated and propagandized by mostly leftwing unionist instructors. This is where their National Education Association (NEA*) dues go. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT*) has the same agenda. American children spend more time each day with these agents of the left than they do their own parents.

On Tuesday, petitions carrying the names of over 8,000 students were delivered to university leaders urging them to “disinvite” DeVos from addressing the commencement ceremony.

Victimhood is a status graduating college seniors — of any background or ethnicity —-should ditch. It clashes with caps and gowns.

Docs with agenda diagnose “patient” they’ve never met

April 23, 2017

How many of these Trump haters supported lying narcissist Barack Obama?

Sinking to a not previously seen low in psychiatry, over thirty mental health “experts,” not one of whom has ever personally met or examined President Donald Trump, say they have an “ethical responsibility to warn the public” about his “dangerous mental illness.” They jointly conclude the successful businessman is not fit to be president of the United States.

Meeting at a conference at Yale University this past week, the group has drawn harsh criticism from others from within the psychology field for violating the 1973 American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which forbids mental health professionals from attempting to diagnose or give professional opinions on someone without having personally examined them.

But that didn‘t stop Dr. John Gartner, who said,“ Worse than just being a liar or a narcissist, in addition, he is paranoid, delusional and grandiose thinking and he proved that to the country the first day he was President. If Donald Trump really believes he had the largest crowd size in history, that’s delusional.” Estimates of crowd size, according to Gartner, provides a reliable barometer of sanity.

It should surprise no one that Gartner is a founder of “Duty to Warn,” an organization of mental health workers who feel Trump is unfit to be president.

Connecticut Republican Party Chairman J.R. Romano responded to the conventioneers calling Trump mentally ill by saying, “This is a sad day. These so-called professionals have thrown ethical standards out the window because they cannot accept the election results.” He also noted that the group is ridiculous and that there is a double standard in how “Duty to Warn” is treating Trump compared to former President Barack Obama.

In response to criticism over his long-distance diagnosis of President Trump, Dr. Gartner said: “This notion that you need to personally interview someone to form a diagnosis actually doesn’t make a whole lotta sense. For one thing, research shows that the psychiatric interview is the least statistical reliable way to make a diagnosis.”

Huh?

Dr Bandy Lee, who organized the conference said, “Dr Gartner was invited as an activist and was not on the actual panel,” emphasizing that the event was “independently organized and did not represent the views of Yale University or Yale School of Medicine.”


Liberal clowns turn Supreme Court confirmation into circus

April 6, 2017

Emblematic of the Democrats’ unhingement syndrome over SCOTUS nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch is radical leftist Sen Jeff Merkley. The Oregon senator is desperately trying to ratchet up his political profile from zilch to a 2020 Democrat presidential candidate.

Merkley was such an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter, he was the lone U.S. Senator to endorse the self identified Socialist over scandal plagued Hillary Clinton.

Merkley’s 15-hour convoluted filibuster stunt begun Tuesday evening, concluding Wednesday morning, is a contrivance to block Pres. Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. The chicanery revealed showboater Merkley as nothing more than a vacuous windbag.  Merkley referred to the vacancy left by the unexpected Feb. 13, 2016 death of Justice Antonin Scalia, as a “stolen seat” that is “being filled by an illegitimate and extreme nominee.”

Despite these shamelessly deceitful Democrat antics, with more scheduled today, we are reminded by the Washington Examiner that in 2006, when he was nominated to serve on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Neil Gorsuch won unanimous confirmation including Democrats and Republicans.

Know this: These actions have nothing to do with Judge Gorsuch. They have everything to do with Merrick Garland — Obama’s lame duck Supreme Court appointee who was not confirmed.


Calif. Dems threaten border wall contractors

March 22, 2017

A trio of California Democrat lawmakers have issued a warning for contractors who sign up for President Donald Trump’s border wall construction project along the U.S./ Mexico: Build it, and we will divest from your company.

This latest act of defiance stems from President Donald Trump fulfilling his campaign pledge to secure our nation’s sovereign, but easily breached border, with a wall. This issue was a winner with American citizens, who swept him into office last November.

The state lawmakers have introduced the cagily written Assembly Bill 946 that would compel the state to drop its pension investments in any companies involved in the construction project.

“This is a wall of shame and we don’t want any part of it,” Assemblyman Phil Ting said in a statement. “Immigrant stories are the history of America and this is a nightmare.”

What Ting neglects to add is that actual immigrants arrive legally. Illegal aliens use stealth to enter our country, and once here facilitate their existence and access to social services by using stolen or fraudulent identification.

He has another ace up his sleeve to “put more money in the pockets of those who need it most.” He devotes a page of his legislative website to checking eligibility forfree money from the government.” Of course the government doesn’t generate money.  Hardworking taxpayers are the ones he desires to fleece, with his “You Work, I Eat” scheme.

Assembly Bill 946 sprang to life on Monday, three days after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested proposals forborder wall prototypes.

The proposed legislation requires the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System — the two largest public pension funds in the nation, with investments of $312 billion and $202 billion, respectively — to liquidate investments in any company involved with the wall’s construction within a year. It would also require the pension-fund management to report a list of those companies to the Legislature.

This lunacy is the brainchild of Democrats Phil Ting (San Francisco), Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (San Diego), and Eduardo Garcia, (Coachella), who must have missed the news that on March 21 alone Customs and Border Protection agents reported seizing over $40 Million in cocaine headed for American streets.

Ting’s district includes the sanctuary city of San Francisco where Kate Steinle, 32, was senselessly murdered by an illegal alien, repeat drug felon, using a stolen gun. He had been deported five times, and was just released from jail. She was strolling the pier walking arm-in-arm with her father when her life was cut short.

In 2011, ABC 10 News in San Diego reported the Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah has a long-established foothold adjacent to the city. Does Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, who represents the area, care?

We need a wall.  We need it now.


Gay porn scandal rocks U.S. military

March 19, 2017

Dishonorable behavior a direct result of the armed forces becoming a place for leftist social experimentation

The USA Today report is labeled, EXCLUSIVE and headlined, ”Gay porn scandal hits military.” Readers are informed that “images on websites show men in uniform engaging in sex acts.” These images “have made their way on to gay porn websites.”

Thank the liberals whose hard-core belief is that anything goes and restrictions of any kind denote bigotry. Few of them have served in the military and lack the understanding of preparedness and the problems associated with interjecting homosexuals into close living and sleeping quarters.

In 1950, President Harry Truman, a retired Amy Major who served in WWI, signed the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which set up discharge rules for homosexual service members.

President Ronald Reagan’s defense directive of 1982 stated “homosexuality is incompatible with military service,” also resulting in discharge. Reagan served in the U.S. Army Air Force attaining the rank of Captain.

By 1992, President Bill Clinton, who used subterfuge to dodge the draft, vowed to lift the ban. The following year, however, he introduced a compromise policy known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Barack Obama who also never served in the military made full repeal of the law a centerpiece of his 2008 presidential campaign.

By 2010, within days of each other, the U.S. House and Senate voted to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” ending the ban altogether. Those presidents who wore the military uniform know all too well that social experimentation and feel good politics have no place either in bunks or on the battlefield.

In June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right, meaning all fifty states must allow such ceremonies, invalidating all previous laws. In celebration, Barack Obama bathed the White House in lights of rainbow hues, symbolizing his unity with those now simply called LGBT.

Along the way, the language changed dramatically as incrementalism crept into the mix, aided in large part by media and Hollywood trendsetters.  Same sex partners now represent “marriage equality.”  Homosexuals have vanished — replaced by “gays” who celebrate their sexuality by holding Pride Parades. The rest of us are merely “straight” and as such, have no exclusive parades, forcing us to join cowboys and bagpipers at the rodeo and St. Patrick‘s Day events. In Phoenix much ado was made of the fact that liberal Mayor Greg Stanton and his then-wife Nicole led the Pride Parade, as the first straight marshals.  

Voicing disapproval of the increasingly aggressive homosexual agenda carries the risk of having the trendy label “homophobe” etched indelibly across your forehead, though there is no fear (phobia) involved. Such shut down tactics have elevated deviant behavior to the new norm and brought us to the place where this previously unthinkable gay porn scandal could occur in the United States military.
