Media Gay Population Debunked

July 16, 2014

The world according to Hollywood and the media has once again been found to be an illusion or, more correctly, propaganda. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention conducted the first large-scale government survey measuring American’s sexual orientation and found that less than 3% of the population identify themselves as gay.

Estimates as high as 30% have been repeatedly used to shame society into approval of homosexuality and to rationalize the re-definition of marriage. 97% of Americans live in fear of reprisals ranging from societal condemnation to loss of employment for merely voicing disapproval of 3% of the population’s lifestyle – because of a media agenda.

Movies and TV shows routinely present gay families and couples as being common and abundant. Respected organizations from the Boy Scouts to the Catholic Church are being condemned and pressured for refusing to change their structure and principles to accommodate only a portion of the 3% that may want to be included. Personal attacks against CEO’s and public figures voicing opinions based on religious beliefs have now become standard.

It is certainly admirable to care about and protect minorities, especially when they are subject to extreme discrimination and violence as gays have been. No one should be treated the way gays were once treated and it is the duty of any society to protect all individuals, even if it is only a few. We have done that but we are now on the proverbial “slippery slope”.

The re-defining of marriage is taking a toll on the foundation of the country: the family unit. We are now being demanded to celebrate gay marriage rather than accept it. There are some extremists advocating gay marriage for the purpose of destroying the institution of marriage altogether. We have opened the door far enough for some to publicly advocate the acceptance and normalization of incest and pedophilia in society.

The slippery slope does, indeed, exist and the media helped the 3% tail drag the entire dog onto that slope. The CDC survey should bring a more rational perspective.

Look Behind the Curtain

June 12, 2014

We are being told Dave Brat’s upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the Virginia Republican primary was a Tea Party win. This comes after a long media campaign to convince us that the Tea Party is dead. The Tea Party was sneered upon and belittled at every opportunity in order to convince us it was irrelevant. Why, then, has there been such a quick and unanimous acknowledgment of its success?

Along with this acknowledgment comes a concentrated effort to discredit Cantor’s muddled stance on immigration as a factor and therein lies one answer. Amnesty for illegal immigrants is being rammed down the country’s throat with executive orders from president Obama who, unilaterally, is defining immigration policies his way. This has become more important than discrediting the Tea Party.

Brat made Cantor’s softness on immigration an issue. By trying to straddle the middle ground on immigration, Cantor alienated voters in his very conservative district as well as across the state. Had Cantor taken a definitive stance either way, he may have won. Lindsey Graham, an unapologetic champion of bipartisanship and compromise on immigration, won in South Carolina, proving that voters appreciate conviction. That win is being spun as a defeat for the Tea Party by those claiming Brat’s win to be a Tea Party success.

Political spin is everywhere and it is getting harder and harder to know what is and what isn’t. Our watchdog “fourth estate” stopped watching and is now part of the problem. We have a dysfunctional government led by a runaway administration backed by a sycophantic media. Voters need to look behind the curtain of propaganda to fully understand what is going on both here and around the world – and bring an end to this mess. If not, that curtain will solidify into an iron curtain, repeating a history – a history no longer taught in our progressive schools.

It not only can happen here – it IS happening here.

Just Go Away, Jane

June 3, 2014

The far left hates the military and this is especially true of the liberal academia controlling our education system. Their pretense of respect for servicemen has been an attempt to make amends for the disgraceful way they treated military personnel during the Vietnam War. UCLA inviting Jane Fonda as a graduation commencement speaker shatters that pretense.

Vietnam vets are, understandably, upset. They will never forget the 1972 treasonable actions of Jane in North Vietnam which are clearly defined in Henry Mark Holzer and Erika Holzer’s factual book, Aid and Comfort. Fonda has offered a half-hearted apology for her actions but it is obvious that she, and the far left, continue to proudly view the incident as a high water mark of their protests.

Vietnam vets have been deeply insulted by Fonda’s escape from prosecution for treason. Her continued movie career and financial success from exercise videos poured salt in the wounds many vets suffered because of her actions. She was treated by the world press at the time as being representative of the view of all of America. Soldiers in the field as well as those at home could not help feeling hurt and abandoned because of her immature foolishness.

Liberal colleges across the nation continually bring in speakers who are an affront to the silent majority and American tradition. The more radical a speaker, the more welcome they are. Students brainwashed by liberal academia are encouraged to protest speakers not fitting the radical mold, so, the squeaky wheel often gets the grease with the cancelling of those speakers.

In this manner, former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, politely backed out of speaking at Rutgers due to loud protests from a minority of close-minded students unwilling to hear from someone outside their protected political bubble. Jane Fonda lacks the class to do the same and will most certainly speak at UCLA in a shameless attempt to bask in the limelight of her protesting glory days.

Vietnam vets, understanding that justice will never be served to Jane, would like her to just go away. Is that too much to ask? For UCLA, unfortunately, it is.

Memorial Day Embarrassment

May 27, 2014

Politicians like to make speeches on Memorial Day praising those in the military and eulogizing those who have died serving our country. One day a year is spent remembering and honoring those who died protecting our way of life, but our government and screwed up society have priorities that put veterans at the back of the line the rest of the year. Michelle Malkin provides a few comparative facts that should be embarrassing to everyone and a wake-up call to a society that has lost its way.

From Michelle Malkin

- In Sacramento, Calif., lawmakers are moving forward with a budget-busting plan to extend government-funded health insurance to at least 1.5 million illegal aliens…In Los Angeles, federal bureaucrats callously canceled an estimated 40,000 diagnostic tests and treatments for American veterans with cancer and other illnesses.
– In New York, doctors report that nearly 40 percent of their patients receiving kidney dialysis are illegal aliens…In Memphis, a VA whistleblower reported that his hospital was using contaminated kidney dialysis machines to treat America’s warriors.
– In Arizona, illegal aliens incurred health care costs totaling an estimated $700 million in 2009. In Phoenix, at least 40 veterans died waiting for VA hospitals and clinics to treat them.
– At the University of California at Berkeley, UC President Janet Napolitano (former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security) has offered $5 million in financial aid to illegal alien students. Across the country, 16 states offer in-state tuition discounts for illegal aliens…In 2013, the nation’s most selective colleges and universities had enrolled just 168 American veterans…Anti-war activists have waged war on military recruitment offices at elite campuses for years.
– In 2013, the Obama Department of Homeland Security released 36,007 known convicted criminal illegal aliens…Department of Homeland Security issued a report in 2009 that identified returning combat veterans as worrisome terrorist and criminal threats to America.

Sterling Silver Slippery Slope

May 5, 2014

Concerning the Donald Sterling feeding frenzy, NBA Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban may have said it best: “It’s changed everything for everybody for the foreseeable future…The world has changed. And everybody better realize it. Now you know the consequences of lack of privacy.”

Cuban further warned: “I think you’ve got to be very, very careful when you start making blanket statements about what people say and think, as opposed to what they do. It’s a very, very slippery slope.” Yes, indeed it is. Sterling displayed racism long before this but was given a pass because of his money. This change is frightening, especially with invasion of privacy seeming to be of no concern.

This certainly should frighten Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos. He has taken a strong stance and spoken out against gay marriage in the past and that’s considered akin to racism by many hardcore progressives. If Sterling can be spied, tried, and fried for voicing an opinion that the NBA considers unacceptable, DeVos could easily be next.

In the 90’s, Cincinnati Reds owner Marge Schott was taken to task for comments made about blacks and Jews. She was punished but she was not stripped of ownership. She eventually sold the team, but it was her decision to do so. Who, then, made the decision that punishment must now be more severe?

Is public opinion, which always sways in the political winds, enough to make that decision? What happens if this society changes? Would it be acceptable for a right-leaning society to determine which opinion should be punished? Will thoughts become punishable?

Slippery slopes certainly do exist and ideological zealots cannot see past their convictions to avoid them. Thought police, much like spaceships, satellites, and holograms, were once the purview of science fiction novels. They may now be coming all too real.

Dizzy From Media Spin

January 14, 2014

“Bridgegate”, as the Christie traffic fiasco is being called, received 17 times more coverage from ABC, NBC, and CBS News in a 24-hour span than the IRS scandal received in 6 months. MSNBC is even going to run a one-hour special to discuss several “theories” about it.

MSNBC’s prescient Mika already provided her theory, stating: “we know Chris Christie and we know he would have known”. She also “knows” what is and isn’t a scandal, saying: “…to bring up Benghazi and the IRS is like flailing for some sort of distraction”. Four dead Americans have become just a distraction.

Bridgegate is a “twofer” for the liberal media. It’s an opportunity to smear a potential presidential candidate threatening Hillary’s chances and it is a substitute for Obama administration scandals that are getting harder and harder to ignore. It even has the additional benefit of keeping continuing negative Obamacare revelations from public awareness.

One of those revelations is that in 2014, 80% of individual costs to health insurance companies between $45,000 and $250,000 will be paid by the government. When insurance is purchased through the government exchanges, private insurance companies are only liable for costs below $45,000. Taxpayers pay the rest. This is not worthy to be a news story.

The continuing takeover by Al Qaida of abandoned Iraq isn’t news, either, except for NBC to tell us that the Iraq War wasn’t worth it. Obama made sure it wasn’t worth it when he failed (deliberately?) to maintain a military presence in Iraq after hastily pulling our troops out. His eagerness to get totally out of Iraq gave new life to defeated Al Qaida forces and they are now back. The media will protect Obama from any blame.

If you don’t like Obama and didn’t vote for him, you are a racist. If you don’t like Hillary and will not vote for her, you are a misogynist. For the media, it’s that simple – and it will be news. The so-called GOP war against women is THE talking point and you will hear it for the next three years as the media prepares to “make history”, again.

You are sure to become dizzy from the spin.

Progressive Derangement

November 26, 2013

Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College seriously proclaimed to his class: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites…what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing”.

It has been reported that this tirade basically calling for white males to commit suicide was received by his predominately white, middle-class students with a standing ovation. The “Diversity Chronicle” found it remarkable that “a few far-right extremists” actually objected to the professor’s “sound and reasonable words” that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind”. Therefore, an enlightened Ivan Fernando from the “Diversity Chronicle” interviewed Ignatiev to clear up any confusion.

Professor Ignatiev clarified: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it…Those who object to my advice (destroying the cancer of humanity known as the white race), knowingly or perhaps unknowingly, are themselves white supremacists.” 

These are the words of wisdom from a retiring, tenured professor in our “progressive” education system. The fact that this is so blatantly racist that it makes Al Sharpton look moderate doesn’t even scratch the depth of its depravity, and our children are being brainwashed with twisted ideology like this in colleges all across the country. This is being paid for with second mortgages, student loans, and life-long savings.  

If this is the future you desire for your children, don’t vote. Stay home and let the deranged, squeaky wheels continue to steer the country. The past two presidential elections emboldened those who espouse this nonsense and it is being labeled “mainstream” thinking. Is it? If so, we are already past the point of no return. If not, we may still be able to avoid doom, but the “mainstream” has to vote to be heard.

Bob Costas Fumbles Again

October 14, 2013

Watching football is supposed to be fun and a distraction from the pressure life throws at us every day. So who needs Bob Costas preaching self-righteous admonitions to us in the middle of a football game? Don’t we get enough of that every place we go?

Not only was Bob’s Sunday night half-time monologue intrusive, it was PC indoctrination of the highest order. After conceding that the Washington team’s “Redskin” name is not offensive to the vast majority of people (including Native Americans) and that objection to the name seems like political correctness run amuck, Costas proceeded to tell us, nonetheless, that we need to be offended.

It seems Bob thinks we are just too dumb to know when we should be offended, so he lowered himself to our level and explained it to us. No matter the intent, Bob tells us “Redskins” is an insult and a slur, and since many colleges have buckled to PC pressure and changed their nicknames, Washington’s NFL team must do the same. Thus, spoke the mighty progressive.

Does Costas know how many people he offended with this inappropriate half-time rant? It may very well be that many more people were offended by this than by the “Redskins” nickname. It is getting so very tiring hearing progressives tell us how we should feel and how we should act. Forcing a vast majority of people to cater to a minority needs to stop, especially when that minority finds offense in everything. It is time to stop greasing the squeaky PC wheel.

If one needs to dig deeply under the surface and use broad interpretations in order to find a “possible” offense, it is likely that there is none. It is not incumbent upon everyone to live in fear of offending someone, especially since it is impossible. Offense is in the eye of the beholder, and far too many behold things that are just not there.

Perhaps our right to offend someone needs to be brought to the forefront. You can pass the popcorn and you can pass the beer; but don’t pass self-righteous gas during a football game. Go away, Bob, you’re annoying.

Shutdown is a Losing Game

October 5, 2013

Every American citizen should be embarrassed – and mad as hell. Elected officials in Washington are playing political games instead of running the government and the star of these games is the president of the United States, Barrack Obama.

For those paying attention, it is blatantly obvious that Obama maneuvered and planned for this shutdown in order to place blame on Republicans and hamper their mid-term election chances. He is now doing all he can to make this pathetic shutdown as hurtful as possible to the American public, eagerly searching for sad shutdown stories to use for his victory dance. It is as petty as it is disgusting, and Obama is unabashedly relishing the mayhem.

For those not paying attention, and there are, sadly, far too many, this stupid shutdown seems due to Republicans having a hissy fit over Obamacare. The mainstream media, carrying Obama’s water, is gleefully laying all the blame on Republicans with nary a word about his adamant refusal to even talk to those wanting to compromise.

That compromise came from House Republicans who backed down from attempting to not fund Obamacare (a losing play from the start) and tried to just make the health care law equal by delaying the mandate for individuals in the same way Obama delayed it for big business. Obama and Senate Democrats wouldn’t even talk about it.

According to an administration official, we are winning, so the length of this shutdown doesn’t matter and Obama couldn’t care less how much it hurts the American people. Boehner, rightly so, angrily called out the administration over this comment, saying This isn’t some damn game. However, most in Congress, including Boehner, are participants in this “game” and the entire country is losing badly.

It would be satisfying, and deserving, to fire Congress, along with Obama, and start from scratch with real public servants. Reality says we can only do this piecemeal through individual elections, but with a majority of voters brainwashed by the media and/or ignorant of the issues, it will be difficult to change. We had better start soon because we, the people, are losing badly and if you can’t see that, you are part of the problem.

Strouse Takes a Weak Shot

September 30, 2013

Democrat candidate Kevin Strouse, attempting to unseat Bucks County Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick, took a weak shot at Fitzpatrick in an opinion article in the Courier Times. His tirade, strict Democrat talking points, blamed Republicans for causing a government shutdown and chastised Fitzpatrick for playing politics with the shutdown and debt ceiling. Unfortunately, he exposed himself as another strict partisan unwilling to place any blame on his own party.

Congress, as whole, is playing politics with every issue it addresses and the chasm between the parties is growing wider and wider with less and less bipartisanship. Society, too, is splitting further apart and it is all being driven from the top downward. President Obama set the tone, refusing to listen to opposing views and demanding acquiescence to his views, never compromising. Futhermore, he demonizes all who dare challenge his policies, using the White House bully pulpit to spread fear and loathing.

His disdain for Republicans, disregard for the law, and his petty criticism of FOX News is unseemly coming from the White House and it has emboldened his unconditional supporters, and non-supporters, to follow suit. Consequently, we now have a mainstream media with no credibility and American voters unaware of the seriousness of administration failures.

If Kevin Strouse continues to carry Obama’s water, refusing to acknowledge Democrat’s part in this fiasco, his campaign will fail miserably. He need only ask Patrick Murphy how well hanging onto Obama’s coattails worked for him. Fitzpatrick has been taken to task for going against the grain of uncompromising Republicans several times, but that has not stopped him from doing what he, and not party hacks, believes is right. That is the best voters can ask of an elected official and it is what Bucks County, and the country, needs – not another meek, Obama sycophant.

Blaming Republicans for everything is just a repeat of blaming Bush. We have had enough of that. It is time to spread the blame around to all those who are guilty, and vote accordingly. Strouse and the Democratic Party need to look into a mirror and finally see their own reflection, not Obama’s.
