It's Very Entertaining to be an American Thing

Dear America,

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -- put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you."  Apostle Paul

this verse, snatched from Philippians 4:8-9...is one of my favorite...pretty sure I have led with it before...no matter.

It's a verse that builds from a place which transcends all human understanding, for in the moment just before, Paul says, "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

with thanksgiving, he says -- being of the present tense -- already praising HIM, no matter what happens; in everything, in thanksgiving, we must go to God to guard our hearts and minds from sinking into a certain darkness, floundering in our own swampy pit of self-pity, anger, despondency, or whatever...

But, to put into practice our loyal attachment to SOMETHING GREATER than ourselves -- to the Lord --  we basically learn to keep our head on straight, through anything and everything, trusting in the belief that for everything there truly is a purpose under heaven.

And Lord knows, that in this DAY, and in this AGE, there is probably no greater struggle upon us, to keep on believing; for we do not often witness the true, the noble, the right, the pure, the lovely, the admirable, let alone anything that appears excellent and praiseworthy...[and if we do, the media sure doesn't want to report about it...but I digress.]

There seems to be so many times, in life, that we simply don't understand why things happen when they happen; why bad things happen to good people; why our set of circumstances can virtually upend overnight, and for what?  For what purpose is some of this nonsense and those woes, the shocks to the system, that come out of nowhere all about?  Does it all go back to being on the receiving end of a gentle, or sometimes not so gentile, reminder of who, in fact, is still in charge?

But just so we're clear (for those aligned as a keeper of a certain faith),  the crazy truth is -- our world will surely get a whole lot worse before it gets a whole lot better again.  (And if that's not motivation to press on, then not sure what to tell you.)

In any event, I have wanted to talk about the Kanye/White House meeting, for what seems like a better part of a week, or more; my days and nights have rolled into one.... but who really cares, right?

But this treatment of Kanye -- being an African-American man, and celebrity, who has risked everything by his passionate support of President Trump, wearing his MAGA hat with pride -- is just heartbreaking.   It's, like, what happened to the Africa American community?  

White people are allowed to lean left or right.

Hispanic people are allowed to lean left or right.

Asian people are allowed to lean left or right.

But nooooooooooooo, if you are a person of color -- an African American -- you are not allowed to color your political party world outside the lines; you are mandated to think the same, support the same, and vote the same way as everyone else within your demographic.  How Martin Luther King Jr. must be rolling in his grave, let me count the ways.

It is shocking, the treatment by the media -- mocking Kanye's mentality and sensibility; and even more shocking, the response he has received  from his peers (like snoopdogg)...

Sometimes, it's just so very entertaining to be living in America. oh my

 But let's go to Thomas Sowell for a little reality check , shall we --

"Many things that would advance blacks would not advance the liberal agenda. That is why the time is long overdue for the two to come to a parting of the ways."
10:03 AM - 18 Oct 2018
indeed....in other words --
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things.

 And more to the point -- it's about time to change your hearts and minds... and political loyalties, my brother.

Being mindful of what we find true, and noble, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable -- let me have you read, for purely entertainment purposes, the full post at The Atlantic, penned by Hillary Clinton, "American Democracy Is In Crisis" -- here.

and let's cut to her big finish:

Meanwhile, hyperpolarization now extends beyond politics into nearly every part of our culture. One recent study found that in 1960, just 5 percent of Republicans and 4 percent of Democrats said they’d be displeased if their son or daughter married a member of the other political party. In 2010, 49 percent of Republicans and 33 percent of Democrats said they’d be upset by that. The strength of partisan identity—and animosity—helps explain why so many Republicans continue to back a president so manifestly unfit for office and antithetical to many of the values and policies they once held dear. When you start seeing politics as a zero-sum game and view members of the other party as traitors, criminals, or otherwise illegitimate, then the normal give-and-take of politics turns into a blood sport.
[my red highlight for emphasis...]

Ironically -- Hillary made this final point, after lambasting the president, the entire republican party and especially the people who continue to support this presidency, after calling the 2016 elections illegitimate and part of an elaborate scheme, including Russian collusion,  after falling lock step in line with her party propaganda that divides Americans by demographics and identity politics, stewing the so-called "hyperpolarization" she claims to have nothing to do with democrats and everything to do with republicans, after elaborating on what she calls [Trump's] "five main fronts of this assault on our democracy."

The nerve, asking mid-stream, how did we get here?

Are you for real, Hill?
[I can think of a way, by way of the antics of the Clinton Foundation, the State Department, the Benghazi terrorist attack, the economic downturn that Obama could never correct, the rampant joblessness, the politics of divide, the lack of security protections at the border, the meeting on the tarmac between your husband and the Attorney General, the fraud of the Iran Nuclear deal, the fraud of the Climate Change agreement, ummmm, shall I go on?  Cuz yes we can go on and on and on.............]

At one point, she says --
"Democracies are rowdy by nature. We debate freely and disagree forcefully. It’s part of what distinguishes us from authoritarian societies, where dissent is forbidden. But we’re held together by deep “bonds of affection,” as Abraham Lincoln said, and by the shared belief that out of our fractious melting pot comes a unified whole that’s stronger than the sum of our parts."
Seriously?  This is exactly what Trump is angling to do -- to unify the whole, the whole of America, as one America, for all Americans, because we are stronger than the sum of our parts. duh.

Your entire post -- ripe with contradictions -- is nothing more than  hate speech towards people who think differently and disagree forcefully from you, you being a liberal.  But much obliged for the Abraham Lincoln reminder of our "bonds of affection;" and likewise, since Lincoln was a republican, this girl is rather confused, yet pleasantly amused, by your choice.  Does your head still hurt, are your eyes still a wee bit blurry?  Is this piece how you show your bonds of affection...cuz i think some areas need a little work.

Gotta say, girl, you are great entertainment.
You and snoopdogg  and Martha Stewart should all hit the road together.
Please run for president again, please, I beg of you.

oh my, happy friday people

be kind to each other...
look for the true, the noble, the right, the pure, the lovely, the admirable, and things should work out pretty well, eventually...at least, within our own minds, anyway...and if nothing else, at least we are not going through any of this alone. May the God of peace be with you ALL (really; and especially with you, Hill.).

amen
and
the end.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Making Heads and Tails of the Week Thing

Dear America,

might I recommend the colonoscopy...


oh the things we have to do as we get older

granted, this girl was running a wee bit late on her first time, butt better late than never, butt dump bum

in hindsight, there was really nothing to be afraid of...it was much ta-do about nothing, really.

As a matter of fact, it was almost as good as any spa day....arrived at the hospital, all cleansed out -- so much so, and without having a meal for 24 hours, almost lightheaded, like near hallucination stage, like I was on something really good (not that I've done that kinda thing before)  and then, I was quickly changed into a hospital gown and swaddled in a warm blankie.  And all I could do was sit back and take it.  

No more phone
No more email
No more a-dozen things to get done before noon

it was like sudden bliss

my life had to stop

next thing I know, a big burly technician with tats up and down his arm is asking me how I am and tending to my right side, two lovely nurses are on my other side getting me hooked up and tending to my left, and then my sweet doctor, with a beautiful accent, is asking me questions, confirming my name, rank and serial number and if I consent to this rather intimate intrusion up into the far reaches of my insides....

yes. 
please.
just put me under already...

next thing I know, I'm home in bed, having not remembered anything from the moment the lights in the room went dim...nite nite

So here we go with the metaphor portion of today's Day in the Life of an American Girl-- 

wish America could have herself a certain cleansing, from the inside out....and then, with a special scope, venture through the muck...bending and stretching and probing into every recess and excess, every ingress and egress, every individual transgress, federal largesse, large and small.

And in the end, when every twist and turn's been done, and with every polyp and rock upturned and fully examined, she, America, somehow returns to sanity, and begins anew, as if nothing ever happened. 

How can it be even be acceptable, for someone -- who almost became president, no less -- say something like this....‘You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about."  As an American, there are not words to describe how off-putting, distasteful, even offensive this is. 

this might be the perfect time to use this wit, plastered across the front of one of my favorite canvasses, a t-shirt:  "wipe your mouth, there is still a tiny bit of bullshit around your lips."  teehee

Is she basically calling for another civil war?  
Are we back to the olden days of duels and kicks in the ass, in order to get our way, politically?

Leave it to the party of free radicals under the influence of Saul Alinsky to double down on tactics of harassment, making threats against life and limb, and using inflammatory rhetoric to incite violence against persons who simply believe in another approach in the care of the American people.

When did we cross the red line, leading us into a new wave of assault?  
When is this kind of nonsense okay?
When did the meeting of the minds cross red and blue lines, and arrive at the clear and present danger of creating battle lines? 

I just don't get it.

If Trump had said we can no longer be civil with the democrats, all hell would break loose.

If Trump had answered the opposition going low with a call to kick back, his ass is grass.

....reminds me of the time a presidential candidate said this:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun," 
“Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
thank you, Barack; thank you for the precedence.

So this sh&*$  is nothing new...

and it best better not stick around very long.

This is no way to co-exist, and get along as one body republic.

If Hillary was president, and republicans acted like this -- the media would be unhinged with indignation.

The thing is -- with all the disappointment of Barack Obama being elected, Supreme Court justices Sotomayor and Kagan being placed on the highest court in the land, the usurping of the Rule of Law with the passage of the "Affordable Care Act" -- the republicans maintained, at large, a great amount of civility throughout all of it.  No republican worth their salt clawed at the doors of the Supreme Court, or penetrated the halls of Congress with crazy protests, shouting down the free speech of our elected officials.

No.  Republicans protested through channels of civility -- wrote their congressman/woman, held Tea Party rallies (rallies that, at the end of the day, left the park picked up and cleaner than in it's original condition), and used the power of their vote to create change, leading to one of the greatest congressional turnovers to date, and later, into the 2016 presidential surprise of a lifetime.

But this nonsense -- what is happening to America these days, from sea to shining sea, is just atrocious.  So much for a peaceful transference of power.

Talk about an embarrassment.

The democrats are turning into Third World activists...and all the while, the rest of us are just supposed to sit back and take it?

No.  Just say no.
Not today, not tomorrow, not ever -- is this disturbing behavior of the entire Left bearable, tolerable, justifiable, or sustainable.  Something's gotta give, or something really really bad will happen.

 
This is an assault against America...  #metooAmerica, taking things up the butt like nobody's business.  I don't know how she does it.

But I believe America is greater than all of it's parts, especially the parts that need cleaned out before the little polyps become metastasized and become a much bigger problem, like, as of, yesterday. Realistically, if we continue down this windy path, the prognosis is not good, people.

Here's one more T time for the road; this t-shirt reads:
  
"when I was a kid, 
I wanted to be older...
but this crap
 is not what I expected."  ;)

the end.

really it is; and then again, it very well could be, showing us signs, that this quite possibly, could be, the very very end, of everything.  

We can always hope. 
  
But let's not put the fear of God out there, right.  This could be nothing more than a procedural stopping point....something we just have to do, and get it over with, like a bad dream after a really fine colonoscopy....one afternoon we will all wake up and go what???  

Until then, no matter how it all comes out in the end, always...

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Realities Colliding Thing

Dear America,


"I HAD MY PATIENCE TESTED.
 I'M NEGATIVE."
teehee...literally.
T-shirt wit strikes again.

and this one really fits nicely, right?



funny stuff.

When none of this stuff is really all that amusing, a little levity is much appreciated; and nobody pulls that off as well as Tucker.

but this ICEGATE...what a riot listening to the left-leaning media's propaganda pile up!

ooooh he threw some ice....the horror.

Do the audiences of CNN and MSNBC really think this nonsense is worthy news?

Wonder why they never talked about THIS news without taking a breath, circa 2008? Obama was approved by the general public and elected to hold the highest office in the land, knowing he came from years of drug/alcohol use, to excess at times, throughout his high school years and in young adulthood.

But anywho,
here we are, mixing the trivial with the serious, twisting stories of relevance with nonsense, and for some people, designating allegations near self-prescribed facts without any real evidence ...other than a memory with holes all through it.  [Did Trump blow it? yes.  He did.  He's got no patience.  He should have waited just a few more days for this kind of thing to come out of his mouth.  That is just the gawd awful truth.]

Here's one more funny thing, and it comes courtesy of the Babylon Bee (love this place)...after getting a little head's up from The Patriot Post (aka my favorite place)

so enjoy....
Everyone Waits Patiently For FBI Investigation That Will Definitely End All Controversy

ah, thank God for people with a sense of humor, right?

tee hee wee wee  all the way home.

truth is, at the end of the day, none of this is all that funny; oh the drama -- as tragedies and comedies and realities collide.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's About that Hearing Thing

Dear America,

some powerful words from my favorite book of daily devotions, Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young:

September 29:  I am with you and all around you, encircling you in golden rays of Light.  I always behold you Face-to-face.  Not one of your thoughts escapes My notice.  Because I am infinite, I am able to love you as if you and I were the only ones in the universe.

Walk with Me in intimate Love-steps, but do not lose sight of My Majesty.  I desire to be your closest Friend, yet I am also your sovereign Lord.  I created your brain with capacity to know Me as Friend and Lord simultaneously.  The human mind is the pinnacle of My creation, but few use it for its primary purpose -- knowing Me.  I communicate continually through My Spirit, My Word, and My creation.  Only humans are capable of receiving Me and responding to My Presence.  You are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made!

We are hardwired by our Creator to know Him.  We are made in His Image, with a mind and conscience, to KNOW Him, RECEIVE Him, and RESPOND TO His Presence and to the world around us without ever being separated from Him, if we so choose.

Watching the testimony all day on Thursday was both remarkable and jolting; for this day in the life of America was not pretty. And at the end of the day, I went to bed saying a prayer for us all.

The thing is, there is just so many things to say...and yet, given the complexity and sensitivity, I really don't know where to begin.  But be that as it may, this is blog, stargate  #959 signing in... 

So let's just start there --  i guess -- 
what's  happening in America 
is anything but 
science fiction;
it's neither a good book to read, nor out of The Good Book, itself; but I'm sure one day, it will be made into a movie.

can I get an amen?

This isn't a case of science fiction in any way, shape or form; this senate judicial committee is for real.  

These men and women -- who are, supposedly, the best and the brightest men and women America has to offer on such a civic scale -- are undermining their own power and effectiveness; their sole purpose IS to serve us --  AMERICA --  with, and through, the processes anchored with the highest standards of decorum, conscientiously weighing and separating what is truly right from what is truly wrong for the betterment of the entire country, and for many, coming complete with a wealth of education, of higher learning, of law degrees and masters, along with a strong semblance of life experiences, meeting up with various degrees of service for a multitude of communities, far and wide, from the local level on up to the state. 

But this hearing -- this hearing revealed anything but that.

It was clear, right from the start, that this hearing would become pure evidence of  21 rounds of political sparring, making a spectacle of the process, if not also, leveling a severe blow against truth itself.  If only this was science fiction...if only.

I like the quote, above, from Sarah Young, for many reasons...but most of all, because it reminds me, gently, that THIS GOD of ours is really AWESOME, and loving, and miraculously THERE for all of us. (Especially when we really really need it...like now) 

It IS a unique and one-of-a-kind relationship freely available to each and every one of us in equal portion -- or rather, in direct proportion to the extent that our minds purposely go to seek It's Presence in our lives.

and isn't that a good thing.

With regards to the hearing, no matter the charges leveled against Judge Kavanaugh -- that was a political stunt.  If the democrats had acted honorably, towards the two parties involved, as well as towards the American people, then they would have brought the letter forward and begun a proper investigation into the charges, effective immediately; as in, within a timely fashion of Sen. Diane Feinstein's office receiving the letter, July 30th.

The democrats methodically and deceptively held this letter close to their chests until such time it warranted the full exposure, the critical timing, all in congruent with creating the set of circumstances and environment to reach optimum gain.

Lying next to the victim -- Christine Blasey Ford --  are not only her uncorroborated allegations of a possible crime against her, but a calculated, politically motivated ambush, resulting in over 300 million people victims of one of the most incredible partisan hack-jobs either side of the Mississippi has ever seen,  at the hands of the U.S. Senate.

Americans watched, as it played out on live TV... the unconscionable raping of the nation's chastity towards a general understanding and belief that all men are innocent until proven guilty; and that that conclusion comes through a process under the established Rule of Law, adhering to a court system, sorting through evidence, revealing witness testimony, and completely satisfying the allegations with actual evidence proving the place, the time, the person(s), and maybe even motive, that is conclusive, leaving no doubts unanswered.

Christine hasn't even filed a police report.
Christine isn't paying for her legal team.
Christine doesn't have a clue as to when it happened or where it happened, let alone one witness to corroborate her memory of an assault.

If Kavanaugh documented nearly every living breathing thing he did, backwards and forwards on his calendar (s) since 1978 --  what explains the absence of even her name, anywhere in conjunction with get together's and casual parties throughout the summer of 1982 -- that being the summer she thinks something occurred with him.

And speaking of which,  the greatest allegations from Christine are in reference to what she thought was going to happen to her; but the reality is, she was not raped; she was not killed....as though she thought, at the age of 15, somewhere in the vicinity of the swishy clubhouse and all of a twenty minute drive from home, when she doesn't have a license.

I do believe she was traumatized by something, and continues to be traumatized today; no doubt.

But something is not quite right in the optics, the timing, the conscious effort to hide the truth before unveiling the truth -- and for the record, none of which I believe, being Christine's fault.

It was the Democratic party who played around, recklessly, and harmfully, and retroactively -- dating back to July -- in a behavior unbecoming of a statesman/woman upon the receipt of the letter exposing the allegations.

In hindsight, if the Democrats had any desire to get to the truth of the matter, the FBI  could have been investigating for the last sixty days...But instead, the Democrats used it as a tactical attack on the opposition.  The most telling -- and I only wish Kavanaugh asked her straight up -- was when Feinstein met with Kavanaugh in her office...an occasion when not one single question was raised about the allegations, even though she was already in possession of the letter.

Who's the deceiver -- the ginned up  D.C. player -- of elite stature in the room now? 

After Thursday, this girl is surprised Feinstein can still stand up, after continuously drinking in the insatiable position of power she has, there just has to be times where she totally blacks out that she simply doesn't want to admit to just yet.  Oh you tipsy DC girls and boys of congress.  If you are having all the fun, then why do I have the headache and hang over?

So, after all the antics, after the democrats aimed to bully Kavanaugh into submission, after all the praising of the new Ford model, the latest symbolic heroin of the #metoo movement....after casting judgement upon the man without hearing a single thing,  where does this leave America?

If both parties -- Kavanaugh and Ford --  believe they are 100% certain of their truth, logic would dictate that we are smack dab in the middle.

Like, the middle middle.

But this hearing -- with eleven on one side and ten on the other --  the decision to send it to the senate for a vote, pending a one week FBI investigation only leaves us with this:  TRUTH lost it's seat in the gallery on this day, and maybe for forever.

We witnessed nothing more than a circus... the swamp getting swampier... there's is bound to be something really creepy about to jump out and scare the living daylights out of all of us, wait and see.  I can just feel it.

And may God help him, if Brett is lying about even one itty bitty detail, right? Mr. Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus....You should know, Blumenthal.  what a kick in the pants.  I feel violated for even hearing such hypocrisy on live TV.  But I digress. bigly.

Either way, neither Kavanaugh or Ford have a life, familiar and secure, and with any reasonable boundaries to call home anymore.  Although Ford may tell a story of the insistence of having two front doors, a partisan wrecking ball has brought Kavanaugh to ruin with a mere hint of evidentiary support along with the customary semblance of pertinent details, i.e. proof.

I bet, having the entire world as it's audience -- I'm willing to bet no one changed their minds.

What does that really mean then?

Have we all fallen into the abyss of partisan hacks anonymous category?

For myself -- I needed proof.  I needed something to persuade me not to follow my blind allegiance to a conservative judge to replace Kennedy.  Although she seemed credible; she was also 36 years broken.  Her mind did not remember details. Her mind confused the truth of conversations heard, and not heard -- mixed imaginations and fear, with that which may, or may not, have happened.  I cried for her, and I cried for Kavanaugh, nearly in equal portion...for this girl is naturally, and supremely, conscientious like that on most any given day.

Oh the human mind. How we use it, or lose it, through all the days of our lives, rests upon using our brains before taking any and all action under heaven.  And venture to guess that those who seek Higher Spiritual Guidance, in good days and bad, are better balanced than not.Those who make decisions after consulting with a Higher Power, probably make better decisions than not.  Generally speaking.
I created your brain with capacity to know Me as Friend and Lord simultaneously.  The human mind is the pinnacle of My creation, but few use it for its primary purpose -- knowing Me.  I communicate continually through My Spirit, My Word, and My creation.

It doesn't matter the party when it comes to real human experiences and emotion touching another, at the heart.  It just doesn't matter.   Unlike real things and reality, and going back to how we started this day -- science fiction can only become real with a little imagination and some kind of mode for delivery, like a book or a film or a costume;  sometimes what we imagine is not true at all; and even sometimes, what we imagine is only part truth and part tricks of the brain, a complicated way of storing memories we hold so dear or memories we wish to forget to protect ourselves.  For better or worse, even the good doctor Ford admitted to plenty of human mind vulnerabilities during her testimony.  Hmmm and has there ever been a claim that ended up being a false positive?

My wish today, is that more people remind themselves of that.

Kavanaugh could be your husband, your father, your brother, or your friend, too.
AND Ford could be your wife, your mother, your sister,  or your friend, too.

Both of them took this step, in public, that may, in due time, turn out to be as monumental -- culturally -- as the first moon landing (which, in my book, was real, btw).

But the main thing is --  let us not forget the mechanisms and blueprints and preparation as to how they, from the F to the K, got there.... on September 27, 2018, seated at the left and right hand and in the chambers of the Senate Judiciary Committee; all of that, was courtesy of the cockamamie scheme cooked up by the democrats.

And besides, just why was there cause for Ford to be flocked with her partisan hack attorney's to both sides of her anyway?   Kavanaugh didn't come with his attorney...Did the telling of her truth really require the insight and guidance from two people who weren't even there?  ...Did she have to be careful, calculated even, with her testimony?  No matter, I know...it's just a girl wondering and pondering  aloud, is all. 

Although I tend to feel pretty certain that we will all have this day etched into our memories for a long, long time to come.  The question becomes more like  -- will you remember what you were wearing, where you were at and how you got there, who watched it with you, or if you drank a beer or two (or whisky) over the course of the longest day ever....come thirty six years later?  Willing to bet, we all blacked out about 4 in the afternoon, Pacific Time.

Thing is -- It may behoove us all to keep a diary of sorts... or is it, of the sordid sorts....

Oooh and just looky here; look at me, at the head of the class for once in my life; when it comes to diaries, this girl has had a good one going with It's a G Thing since 2009.

....your welcome. and what a day in the life of an American girl it has been....what a day, what a day.

as the end of another day comes around and goes around, again.

Make it a Good Day, G

Epiblog

So Michelle Obama is out there campaigning for college kids to get out to vote...fascinating.  DO you think she will address campuses with members of the Young America's Foundation...encouraging them to vote?? Anyone??  Yeah, like most everything else mixing the left-brain and higher learning...they are only interested in the average college kid voting to get them to vote left, and raise a generation of more liberals.   Likewise, they are only into "free speech," if you lean left in ideology....it's a pattern.

It's about America..and She is Governed by Americans Thing

Dear America,

America is governed by Americans. 
We reject the ideology of globalism,
 and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.

Around the world, 
responsible nations must defend 
against threats to sovereignty 
not just from global governance, 
but also from other, 
new forms of coercion and domination.
TRUMP 
@latestUNsmackdown
amen to that
amen to that

although there are plenty in the media whooping it up over the extent of laughter Trump received by saying this little nugget right off the bat  ---

"In less than two years,
 my administration has accomplished 
more than almost 
any administration 
in the history of our country."

I find the whole thing rather refreshing. [love that "more than almost any administration" part....at least he said almost.]

It was a huge speech, full of rah rah for America...and the world....

We are standing up for America and for the American people. And we are also standing up for the world. 
This is great news for our citizens and for peace-loving people everywhere. We believe that when nations respect the rights of their neighbors, and defend the interests of their people, they can better work together to secure the blessings of safety, prosperity, and peace. 
Each of us here today is the emissary of a distinct culture, a rich history, and a people bound together by ties of memory, tradition, and the values that make our homelands like nowhere else on Earth. 
That is why America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control, and domination. 
I honor the right of every nation in this room to pursue its own customs, beliefs, and traditions. The United States will not tell you how to live or work or worship. 
We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return.

what's not to love about all that... that is a lot of Trump love and respect going around the world and back again, like a boomerang.

Notice that there is no bigotry, or racism, or even a trouncing of exceptionalism -- it is pure, unadulterated, Trump at his best:  schmooooooooozing the daylights out of the room before he gets into brass tacks and reality checks.

It is a new day for America...and she is looking pretty great, if you ask me.  And just in case you are a wee bit fuzzy on the details, this America is governed by Americans. 

Notice he didn't even say a government of the republic, or pin point that we are governed by the swamp of D.C.; no.  He said we are governed by AMERICANS. Yes, indeed; individual Americans govern America.  This distinction, from our birth, is what made America THE Exception; for up until the time America was made, and established things, there was no other government on the planet like ours.  As in none -- not almost none, but none.

Make no mistake:  France -- and the French people -- do not govern America; Russia -- and the Russians -- do not govern America (and have you noticed just how quiet the news is on the Mueller investigation these days?);  Iran --  and the Iranians, and especially the Ayatollah -- do not govern America; Mexico -- and the Mexicans -- do not govern America...and so on, and so on.  America is governed by Americans; and as far as the the new world globalists come and go, they can just take a hike around the globe and back, for nothing is going to make America change her mind.

But heaven's to betsy, look at the time; speaking of reality checks, this girl has an appointment with many other things to do, like many other things; like, more things than almost any other person on the planet has to do today.

So, uncharacteristic of my usual sh-peel,
this abruptly marks the end of this Day in the Life of America...but don't fret, there will be many many more.... like, many, many more -- like, more than almost any other blogger in the whole history of the world.   teehee.

It's Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Day Thing

Dear America,

game on, kimmel...

“Hear me out on this,” 
Kimmel began 
“So Kavanaugh gets confirmed
 to the Supreme Court, OK? 
Well, in return 
we get to cut that 
pesky penis 
of his off 
in front of everyone.” 
@Breitbart


yup, so says the guy famous for this........


OH that MAN SHOW....
with a title like that, would that even make it out of the cutting room in today's sensitive climate?

So what, in Uncle Sam Hill, gives this dude the gonads to say a fricken thing about Brett Kavanaugh?

He's not that funny, and he has no third leg to stand on, if you get my drift woody.

Oh yes, Kimmel, we can all be crass when we wanna be -- but if you ask me, the US of A was better off when we behaved ourselves, especially in public, or when bouncing around the public domain via the world wide web.

It's hard to believe he actually said what he said, really.  But seriously, who's playing who?

And how do we know he was just kidding?  Given this new age of RESISTANCE, right Brennan?

"Any attempt by the White House to subvert or manipulate law enforcement should be resisted," Brennan tweeted Monday evening. "Rather than resigning, officials should stand their ground & wait to be fired. Resisting abuse of presidential authority is not a policy difference; it’s about adhering to the rule of law."

so says the leftist-ordained leader of the new radicals of resistance...John Brennan.  And if you have been following along the bouncing blue balls, there are no rules anymore.  Or read this.  And speaking of leaders and mentors of leaders and mentors...

From Saul Alinsky --

"Confronted with the materialistic decadence of the status quo, one should not be surprised to find that all revolutionary movements are primarily generated from spiritual values and considerations of justice, equality, peace, and brotherhood.  History is a relay of revolutions; the torch of idealism is carried by the revolutionary group until this group becomes the establishment, and then quietly the torch is put down to wait until a new revolutionary group picks it up for the next leg of the run.  Thus the revolutionary cycle goes on."
....and a page later --

"I believe that man is about to learn that the most practical life is the moral life and that the moral life is the only road to survival.  He is beginning to learn that he will either share part of his material wealth or lose all of it; that he will respect and learn to live with other political ideologies if he wants civilization to go on. This is the kind of argument that man's actual experience equips him to understand and accept."
Oh, better call Saul quite the comedian, right.

just who's playing who?

First, as for that soul searching "that man is about to learn"  -- this imaginary age of enlightenment, take two, the one man seemed ripe to endow....the one showing the way of "the most practical life is the moral life and that the moral life is the only road to survival" -- um, really?

Now, he wrote this book, Rules for Radicals, in the early seventies -- which came directly after the sixties, if I'm not mistaken.  Did we actually learn anything from our behavior in the sixties?  Were the seventies about to transform us -- all of this manhood -- in every way, or at least in the way of brotherhood and peace and equality and justice?   Or, is this just Alinsky being Alinsky --  framing an argument, that deceptively leads us to a better understanding of man's final destination according to Siri Saul, via the way of an organized fraud and the redistribution of wealth?

And this part --  "that he will respect and learn to live with other political ideologies if he wants civilization to go on."  What a riot.

Um, the Left didn't seem to get this memo, now did they?  There is not one cry from the left, in calling for a simple co-existence, let alone a group of them.


It's such a great shame.  How ignorance continues to wreak havoc.

Our greatest understanding --  based upon the foundation established in America 231 years ago  --  should be that we are NOT a society of groups whatsoever.  The organization, from top down and bottom up, began with the idea that we are a collection of INDIVIDUALS seeking life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness under God; that our rights come from our Creator, and that these rights are unalienable, and purely part of the natural order itself.

A moral society was intended to be the end, with the means by way of the establishment of morally sound individuals, people who are characteristically virtuous and leading lives of principled values, in peace with one another.

Taking us back a wee bit, a revolution was fought against a huge power -- the Church of England; back in the day, this power daily demonstrated all the oppression and taxation and infringes upon liberty one can ever imagine (that is, until perhaps FDR or BHO.....teehee).

And America continued to revolutionize thereafter...be it through a Civil War, the World Wars, the demonstrations throughout the sixties on behalf of civil rights, for one and for all.

While America continues to be a dominate factor, all over the globe,  fighting for freedom and justice and equality and peace and brotherhood everywhere and often.  America IS the beacon of hope on all fronts....still.  If we weren't, then there would be no need for a wall at all, right?

But what we are watching today -- in the Kavanaugh hearings -- is a revolution of the worst kind; for it isn't even based on a truth!  She --  Professor Ford, in the ballroom, with a candlestick (the revolver is no longer a weapon of choice in the new game of Clue, by the way)   --   doesn't even know the truth.

just who's playing who?

The thing is, there is no presumption of innocence until proven guilty for Kavanaugh; he has been tried through the left leaning media, through political tactics of Feinstein and the democrats, through stand up idiots, like Kimmel -- simply because Kavanaugh leans towards a different ideology.

Kavanaugh does NOT believe in the "living Constitution" -- and that being, by definition, pliable to the whims and politics and ideologies of man.  Kavanaugh believes in the Rule of (Actual) Law.

And he seems pretty solid on his facts, too.  Read this from The Patriot Post.

Is this all we have to do now --  sow seeds to vilify, demoralize, slander, and bully someone like a Supreme Court nominee and, in proper formation, take part in publicly, grossly, victimizing the entire family and his/her person, and destroy his entire career and livelihood in one fell swoop?

How have we done, Saul, according to your future projections of man....how have we done?

From Gallatin's final paragraph, at The Patriot Post --

"Kavanaugh realizes that he will have to fight for his good name and reputation not only before the Judiciary Committee but before the court of public opinion. He’s not naive to the fact that at least within the mainstream media he’s guilty until proven innocent. Sensationalism sells." 

indeed it does.

Morally -- mainstream media should be ashamed of themselves.  Just who is profiting off of this story?  Certainly not the American people.

just who's playing who?

The good news -- Kavanaugh is prepared to stage his own revolution.  Why?  Because he believes he is on the side of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  And besides, he doesn't even have anything close to a video library of asking attractive women on live TV a question, like, can you guess what's in my pants?  

yeah, Kavanaugh doesn't have that on the record.  Matter of fact, there is no evidence to be found. It's all hearsay, or her-say, like, what ev errr.

But Kimmel does.  Although, at best, I consider this nonsense simply juvenile; but, just maybe, if intoxicated enough, I just might consider it a wee-wee bit funny...or, come forty years from now and growing totally disgusted, almost to the point of feeling violated.  And then, I'll be coming for you, Kimmel.

hahahahahahahahahhahhahaha

the end.

And please, by all means, try as you might to ....

Make it a Good Day, G

It's a Miss Leading of the Public, privately, Thing

Dear America,


oh the simplicity of Thoreau...

"I observe, by the way, that it costs me nothing for curtains, for I have no gazers to shut out but the sun and the moon, and I am willing that they should look in.  The moon shall not sour milk nor taint meat of mine, nor will the sun injure my furniture or fade my carpet; and if he is sometimes too warm a friend, I find it still better economy to retreat behind some curtain which nature provided, than to add a single item to the details of housekeeping.  A lady once offered me a mat, but as I had no room to spare within the house, nor time to spare within or without to shake it, I declined it, preferring to wipe my feet on the sod before my door.  It is best to avoid all beginnings of evil."
this is just the sort of thing Marie Kondo would go gaga over, right?

oh the upkeep, the energy, the time thoreau-ly wasted being controlled by the myriad of inanimate objects and things in which we surround ourselves, ironically to make our lives easier, breezier, pleasier, as we all get lazier and lazier, superficially fixated more and more upon the exterior -- what the world sees --  and less and less on the interior, the unseen...our relationship to the things of a higher purpose under heaven, if not God, Himself.

once we get something new, a mat, or this, or that -- we must be also responsible in the keeping fit of such a thing.

all of this pretty much leads me right through the front door of the house that America built.

....and what a sight. 

what a mess we have made -- whether we are referring to ourselves, as individuals, or the maze of bureaucracies, large and small -- it's time to clean up; the truth is, the obsessive and compulsive optics through the lens of politics is going to suffocate us, rape us of our innocence, and thrust our system of justice and rule of law into chaos if we don't speak up now. 

Just who has a hand over the mouth of America now?  
It's just a good question.

And I'm sorry, but not sorry -- about this Professor Ford girl....

NO.

This is no more than a story about a girl who has had plenty of opportunity, and time, and intelligence,  to act upon this so-called horrific experience --  alleging she was assaulted by two, or was it four, boys in high school, as the details are sketchy, at best....blah, blah, blah...


But she isn't going to get that, so now what?

Um maybe -- and just guessing here -- that because the reality of any evidence of committing a federal crime is simply not there, the FBI had to decline.  crazy, right.

How about, Professor, you actually file a complaint at your local police station?   Um. like over thirty years ago....  

But honestly, what gives YOU the right to mislead the public in private now?

It's like, why now?  

Even if you were forced to face this nonsense when you and your husband were in the midst of counseling, circa 2012, why would you not have raised your voice then?  The case -- if filed then and there --  would have very well been handled through the court system nearly anonymously.   None of us would have cared a rat's ass about it.   So why continue to keep your mouth shut...until now?  If this, in fact, was ruining your life.... this assault...then I, for one, and  especially as a fellow girl, don't understand you.  I mean, my goodness, you teach graduate students, in clinical psychology, at Stanford, for pete's sake!  

Clinical psychology is an integration of science, theory and clinical knowledge for the purpose of understanding, preventing, and relieving psychologically-based distress or dysfunction and to promote subjective well-being and personal development...thank you wiki


OMG talk about cob webs...think this prof needs to get up under the rafters...just sayin'.  And, yeah, who am I to judge -- just bear in mind, Professor Ford made a conscious choice to jump into this with both of her big girl's feet, so just that fact alone, gives license for all of us to respond....  

We are Americans watching, and participating, in a political free for all. And with the internet, the left makes it so easy breezy to take part ;)

But just to be clear -- this supreme charade is simply a ridiculous display of a sideshow.

And now, even Diane Feinstein can't even say she believes her??  Seriously.

So let me get this straight -- you heard from Ford, in July, but waited until the 11th hour to bring it to the light of day, and now, you "can't say if everything is truthful?"

What a piece of work, you are, Diane. What a piece of work.  Oh the collection of political antics and doormats and crystal cut bullshit you have acquired in all your years in Washington.  #Count me in as amazed,too.  This, ma'm, is called misleading the public for political gain.

I feel dirty.
Do you feel dirty?

here's something funny, and it pretty much has nothing to do with anything here, other than keeping things straightforward and above board---  I'm listening to 91x, a local radio station which plays mostly alternative rock and reggae, really good stuff; and it's been around since I was in high school....so...long, long time...teehee

but the funny part is this -- it's based in Mexico...Tijuana to be exact, just south of the San Diego border.  Well. lo and behold, the public announcements never cease to amaze me.  They run campaigns all the time, reminding the public of their DUTY to do what is right, to speak up, to vote, to take part in changing the politics (the ongoing corruption) in Mexico.  

Everything begins with the announcer (usually someone sounding young and hip) hooking people with a question; but it's often setting people straight, like, "have you renewed your voter registration card?"  And continuing, immediately addressing the consequences, like, "you can't vote if you can't show a current voter registration card..."   

I know right?

It's like, how can the entire country of Mexico be permitted to keep it's polling records clean and tidy, even going so far as demanding people show a voter verification card.....while leftists, from cities and counties far and wide, in America, cry foul when conservatives simply ask our voters to show an I.D.?    What's with Mexico's show of nationalism?  Or, more to the jugular, is it even racist?  How can they get away with it, let alone announce it to the world on the radio?  Right?

For the record -- I don't believe ANY woman should raise allegations of a crime long after the crime has been committed; too much gets lost, be it the evidence or the memory.  But when talking decades later.....?  Um No.  In an instant, the memory and the evidence collides straight into the corner of the coffee table while angling to get to the dust bunnies under the couch and along the baseboards.  And when you mix that with a hidden agenda....oh my how things can get ugly, messy even... and quite honestly, deceptively, shrewdly Miss Leading.

It's #metoolate

and this is all I got today.

the end.

feeling the need to clean.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's the G Effect Thing

Dear America,

"Every adversity God allows in our life
 is designed to bring us
 to spiritual maturity, 
not to devastate us.  
When we yield to Him 
in the midst of a crisis, 
He enables us to trust 
and wait on Him with patience and hope." 
 Rev. Charles F. Stanley, 
just part of my crew of in-house counsel
...teehee

gooooooooooooood morning America

happy friday

our eastern seaboard 
is in the midst of great adversity 
as we speak...
let us stop for a moment 
of prayer for all of our
 fellow Americans in Hurricane Florence's path...

on the bright side -- because there always is one, somewhere in the midst -- is that through today's technology, we CAN actually prepare ourselves;  we CAN get out of harm's way; we CAN hop on a bus, plane, train, or automobile and go visit grandma, or what have you....we CAN do all the things necessary to meet such adversity well in advance.    CAN i get an amen?

But this nonsense of  the Washington Post declaring Trump "complicit" in the midst of Florence's wrath of terror...just because, like MANY Americans, he does not buy into the fraud that is afoot -- the one based upon projections of the immoral culpability of man-made climate change and it's destruction, weighed against the wealth of affluent nations, and then dividing such wealth dis-proportionately throughout the third world, and such. 

The science on this one is not settled folks; and I am not crazy for being suspect of the powers that be who wish to make it so.  This world has had turbulent weather, temperature swings, droughts and floods, ice ages and melting ice caps, throughout thousands of years.  THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of years.  

To say, in all serious, that Trump is complicit, simply because he questions what has turned into nothing more than a political power play, an agenda ripe with a one-sided view, when all this time, the actual temperature of the planet had not fluctuated outside of a pretty tight variance, is just ludicrous.  No, it is being downright disingenuous -- deceitful and calculating -- and echos the ricochet, the clanking, of a methodical, storm surge, decades in the making and larger than life itself.  The Washington Post should be ashamed of themselves.  This type of propaganda should have a name for it, too (oh wait, it does; it's called rubbish.)

What a bunch of loons (Warning: that there link takes you to a page that proclaims the some loons are Climate Endangered.  Oh just the sound of that...oh how a girl can dream.... And just to make be clear...I'm not talking about actual loons, I am referring to liberal loons, big difference.)


But moving right along -- according to me, G....after careful study of the data collected (since birth) -- that it won't be climate change that submerges entire villages and, for all intents and purposes, brings the better part of extinction to life as we know it, it will be the shameless, reckless, massive amounts of liberal group think, that will bring on the ruin, in the end.

Remember when there were people who questioned whether or not the world was flat?!  For who really knew, right?

Remember when there were people -- and one in particular -- who questioned the power and control of the Catholic Church, and ultimately became part of history, aligned with the splendid timing of the printing press (like, who even saw that coming, right?)  and  changed everything, virtually overnight!  ....Thank you, Martin Luther.

Matter of fact, remember when liberals loved to question authority?  How ironic.  Find me a lib who thinks for him/herself, who will actually stand up to the daily dose of constant leftist's dribble, through the continuous tidal waves of leftist mainstream media, via the web, in print, and television,  and actually dares to say, 'um, like really my people?'   'um, like, have you seen the charts, have you ...' and I will surely give them a medal.  Anyone...  [By the way, that right there is a fascinating link to climate change pros and cons, and that's it (I think....hard to tell, really)   Anywho, with a ten minute glance, www.procon.org seems to promote the idea of looking at the data, actually reading it, and then deciding what makes the most sense, for yourself.  What I like about it, is the straight forward tit for tat, but you be the judge.]

................

Living in America, in this day and age, as a conservative, has many challenges.   It's as if there is no room for the existence of opposition -- whether in thought, word, or deed; it seems, critical thinking outside the politically correct sphere is under attack; and that to me, is amazing.  How is it possible to declare an entire body politic, ideology, worthy of extinction just because we disagree on how to run the country?

Truth is -- as the title to today's devotional from Rev. Charles Stanley proclaims -- there are only "Two Ways Through a Valley."  Which simple means, you can trudge through the easy way or the hard way; you can manage the streams of adversity by way of faith, or fear.


I mean, my God, some of our best of times came under the Reagan Administration --  and yet, here we are -- through the unforeseeable valleys of multiple wars, terror attacks, natural disasters, economic downturns, and the like, after all the adversities of our days  -- just how did we get here?

"The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could."

really, Joe? 

no, really, you loon.  And to think, you and Mika used to hang out with this crazy politician,  (But, just for the record, Joe, you know nobody thinks of him as a politician, right?  That was one of the main reasons Trump appealed to the American people, right from the start...to the point of even garnering the interest of a few working class democrats who bravely broke with the ranks...)

SO --  how about this ---
how about we give Trump the Nobel Prize for Economics, as this guy is given a soapbox to speak...

....always have liked Stephen Moore...love this part:

"Well, yes. Guilty as charged. When dismayed reporters ask me why he is doing all these things that are so offensive to the chattering class, my response is almost always the same: "Um, because this is what he promised voters he was going to do. Weren't you paying attention?"
and this:

"This "Obama effect" might be semi-plausible except for the fact that every policy Trump implements reverses President Obama's policy."
doncha love it.

um, like, that's funny stuff.

The thing is --  it really isn't crazy talk; it's just a reflection of the opposition reality that nobody wants to address in a stand up, respectable manner anymore.   ugh.

And in America....of all places; isn't it quite unbelievable.

The best thing about all this, is that God is still on the throne.  I choose to go through this barren valley --  the one knee-deep in one-sided leftist mumbo-jumbo and loaded with oppressive tendencies, and flooded with authoritarian rule and policies all over this great land, and know just WHO I answer to.  I choose to live through this adversity by way of my faith, knowing that in the end, all will be well; and if things do not appear all well, then it must not be the end.

This is what I like to call the G effect -- in the more ways than one column.  And it is gooooooood.


And in that vein, this is where I must leave you; it is the end of this day in Just a Girl land....

Make it a Good Day, G

It's Woe Woe Woe Feelings Thing

Dear America,


Devotion -- September 10:  "I am always available to you.  Once you have trusted Me as your Savior, I never distance myself from you.  Sometimes you may feel distant from Me.  Recognize that as feeling; do not confuse it with reality......Let these assurances of My continual Presence fill you with Joy and Peace.  No matter what you may lose in this life, you can never lose your relationship with Me."  Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

as much I just want to impress upon the idea of simply trusting in the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind....the part that really got to me, given the age we are in -- in America -- is that phrase in the middle of it all.  "Recognize that as feeling; do not confuse it with reality."  teehee

why do I love it so, pray tell?

for we -- in America -- have a lot of people who refuse to respect, let alone live, in reality. 

and not only that, my good ole papa sent me a link to something that goes right to this point.


here's a wee bit:
The losing party of leftist Democrats began believing their own narrative of political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism. They live in the world of subjective reality where facts do not get in their way. Let me explain.

Subjective reality is a dreamscape where saying is the same as doing, all ideas are equal, and trying is the same as achieving. In the surreal world of subjective reality FEELINGS are the determining value. So, if you feel like Hillary should have won then in your mind she did win. If you feel that Donald Trump should not have won then he didn't win - he is not your president.
and goes more in-depth to explain here --

How did this happen?

During the 1970s parenting and education shifted the focus from preparing children for adulthood to the elusive goal of assuring happiness for children. Happiness was no longer the consequence of competence and achievement - it became the goal itself. A seismic shift in the standards for behavior was launched. Those of us who had young children in elementary school in the late 70s and 80s witnessed a perplexing change in educational standards. Feelings replaced facts for what determined acceptable and unacceptable behavior. This is how it works.
and then even uses an old satirical comedy, Parental Guidance, starring Bette Midler and Billy Crystal --playing the age-old grandparents not playing into the new hip parental guidelines, applying lessons from the olden days all the way through -- to substantiate her point in technicolor.  Well played, Linda, well played.

The Left refuses to play fair in this day and age -- that's about all there is to it.

All I want to say to everybody is just get over it!

Move along already.

And what is with having no rhyme or reason as to who gets allowed to voice opinion and who doesn't?

So Twitter can suspend Alex Jones (who is now totally forbidden), but not Louis Farrakan?
So Twitter can suspend Kris Paronto -- a Benghazi Hero and patriot -- but not Ahmadinejad?

So does Carole Cook have a twitter -- cuz she should be suspended, if not barred for life -- calling out "where's John Wilkes Booth when you need him?"  Did she just ask someone, anyone, to assassinate a sitting president?  And everyone is okay with this?

AND SERIOUSLY, Obama?

Appealing to tribe, appealing to fear, pitting one group against another, telling people that order and security will be restored if it weren't for those who don't look like us or don't sound like us or don't pray like we do, that's an old playbook. It's as old as time. And in a healthy democracy it doesn't work. Our antibodies kick in, and people of goodwill from across the political spectrum call out the bigots and the fearmongers, and work to compromise and get things done and promote the better angels of our nature. But when there's a vacuum in our democracy, when we don't vote, when we take our basic rights and freedoms for granted, when we turn away and stop paying attention and stop engaging and stop believing and look for the newest diversion, the electronic versions of bread and circuses, then other voices fill the void. A politics of fear and resentment and retrenchment takes hold. And demagogues promise simple fixes to complex problems. They promise to fight for the little guy even as they cater to the wealthiest and the most powerful. They promise to clean up corruption and then plunder away. They start undermining norms that ensure accountability, try to change the rules to entrench their power further. And they appeal to racial nationalism that's barely veiled, if veiled at all.
thank you.
thank you for describing you, with a capital B and a capital O.

After eight years of preaching the political gospel of Divide and Conquer, you have your coming out party saying this?

thank you, and thank you from Townhall, too.

"Appealing to tribe..." he says... what a joke.  My tribe -- of conservatives -- believes in one tribe, as in e pluribus unum, that looks a lot like, every American all together.  We don't break out by color, or religion, or individual culture.

It's about one culture -- American.

Newsflash:  we know your feelings may be a wee bit hurt, but we had an election based upon the reality on the ground, and democrats lost, republicans won, fair and square.  NOT ONE VOTE WAS CHANGED by Russian meddling, not ONE vote.

Don't you get it?  Russian meddling was not even needed after eight years under the your administration; the American people voted based upon the economic reality you left; the immigration reality you ignored; the Obamacare fraud reality you led without one bipartisan republican vote; the terrorist attack -- upon Americans -- in an horrific Benghazi reality leading with a narrative based upon a downright lie, the same reality that ignored the reality of needing more security in Benghazi for years, by the way; the divisive nature of your leadership reality which pitted Americans against Americans and especially that of cops against crime makers, creating a movement based upon a lie in Black Lives Matter; the lack of security under your leadership under Hillary's State Department using a makeshift server out of a bathroom to send confidential information, providing a reality which was ultimately hacked; um, shall I go on?

This nonsense, based upon reality, gave many Americans reason to trust in a whole 'nother direction (again), for that is just what we do  in America; for THAT is just what happens in a democracy.   And for that, I, for one, can give thanks.

We take turns holding power.

We respect the office.

We follow the rule of law.

We accept the results.

......everyone seems to understand this, except democrats.

You know, quite honestly -- this past president's speech was a pathetic pouty pitch-fit.  And I can't wait for more...oh the blogs this girl has laying in wait....I'm speechless...dizzy with excitement.

And this, let's plug one more thing just for fun, from Obama --
It should not be Democratic or Republican, it should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the FBI to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents.
UM What happened under your IRS... your Attorney General(s) Holder and Lynch... your FBI....james comey....the tarmac....

I love this part within that Townhall post (linked above) from Matt Vespa --

Here’s the difference, Barry. Maybe you had some achievements on the economic front when you were in office, but you weren’t a cheerleader for America. You sucked at that, making sure to downplay or marginalize America’s role in the world, which allowed Russia to kick you around like rag doll all over the place. The retreat bolstered Syria to reportedly launch a chemical weapons attack, a red line for your White House that was never enforced. And even there, you allowed the Russians to stake a claim in the Middle East, going back on nearly 50 years of U.S. policy in the region. 
(not sure why I went baby blue, maybe just cuz he's a boy)

but I digress, Vespa then goes right into this --

Also, sorry—Barry, you’re a Democrat. You’re a liberal. We don’t need you to lecture us about what’s wrong with the GOP. What’s wrong with your party, which lost over 1,000 seats since you were elected across state, federal, and local offices? You decimated your party, while the GOP has become the dominant political force in the country; Democrats are an urban and coastal party. Also, the Republican Party is the only party that has become paranoid, divisive, and bitter? Dude, that’s your party. Democrats and liberals are embracing Russophobia in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss, they adopt race-based safe spaces and bash white people, and they’re bitter over the success of others—hence the shift towards socialism: envy and bitterness are that philosophy's core tenets. 

and we're back to feelings.

 and we're back to Linda Goudsmit --

Those of us who had young children in elementary school in the late 70s and 80s witnessed a perplexing change in educational standards. Feelings replaced facts for what determined acceptable and unacceptable behavior. This is how it works.

feelings replacing facts.  feelings, woe woe woe feelings....(gosh I hate that song, now, more than ever)

And apparently, the Left wants to dictate how we feel about everything....choosing winners and losers, choosing to stand or kneel, choosing Nike or Under Armour, choosing free speech based upon ideology -- as in, we are to share the same feelings, or die.... or at least be suspended, maybe even barred and banned altogether.

this is a slippery slope to losing the very things that make America great, again and again and again.

Say it with me, now:  feelings replacing facts has fucked us up in every way.

good job.

I think.... therefore, I am; and I think, that's all I got.

the end.

Make it a Good Day, G

It's an All American Rumble and Fumble Fest Thing

Dear America,

"Believe in something.  
Even if it means sacrificing everything."
Nike Ad, featuring Colin Kaepernick

fabulous; and what a jarring way to segue from the easy breezy summer compositions to the full on, rough and tumble of fall ball.  Are we ready to roll, or what?

so we have football being politically charged, double-doubles being politically charged, and now sneakers....

Oh Nike -- it's a great message.... just the wrong face at the wrong time.  And YOU know it. 

Nike stepped into this campaign knowing full well the controversy would score some, and simultaneously, and explosively, take some away.  And NIKE DID IT anyway.

What is clear, given the reality that conservatives and many independents -- people leaning just right of center, to full throttle right, to everything in-between -- like working out, too.  These people, many being my people, like to just do it, just as much as the left guy, right.   And yet, Nike purposely elected to cut off relations with all these people in one move, overnight.  Stunning.  Calculating. And in my mind, just wondering if it was worth it? 

Time will tell.

Clearly, Nike picked a side.

And just as the president noted yesterday -- something like, he didn't like it, but  "this is what this country is all about"  -- and putting this in a more complete context, simply pointing out that the company has every right to make its own business decisions....To which, all this girl can add would be that he is absolutely right.

Further --  it is upon this very notion -- that the Left must concede, that even the Christian bakers and pizza makers also have every right to "pick a side" -- no matter the issue, the catalyst, for picking a side, and standing by that something to believe in,  in the first place.  We take our rumbles and fumbles with great pride.   EVERY  business has EVERY right to sacrifice EVERYTHING when they BELIEVE in SOMETHING!  [And I believe that goes double when in favor of Something really big, like, um, God, but what do I know, I'm just a girl x teehee]

INDIVIDUALLY -- we each have every right to make a choice -- aka to make our bed and lay in it --  each and every moment of the day, in every set of circumstances/conditions, that in proper turn, instantly give way to whatever consequences may lay in wait; for every action has a reaction, right. And naturally, without prejudice, this describes --  precisely --  how cause and effect works.  Our rumbles and fumbles work individually and collectively, large and small, macro and micro alike.

BELIEVE in something, 
even if it means sacrificing everything

...works at funerals, too.

It was the pastor at Aretha's funeral -- the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. --- who had the nerve to call out the issue of black on black crime...and in an instant, boy did he turn up the volume to controversy; when surely he was just speaking his truth, perhaps even the truth, to an audience who should know better...and in turn, is still standing firm to that something something said out loud, something awfully good and totally praise worthy:
"I said black do not matter, because black lives cannot matter, will not matter, should not matter, must not matter until black people begin to respect their own lives. Then and only then will black lives matter. That's what I said, and again, and again, and again. We need to have respect for each other. Once we start doing that, then we can begin to change."

HE BELIEVES in something even if it means sacrificing everything....He just said it, did it, and is faithfully standing behind it....
and just where oh where did his respect go?   Anyone?

Hey, even up-Chuck Todd can believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything, or nothing, really, given his reality is totally tainted...given he's surrounded by a band of liberal media brothers and sisters who think the same thing, and say the same thing, and do the same thing, day in and day out and shamelessly have his back.  Please, just stop doing it, up-Chuck. please.

LIBS are all under the same delusions of grandeur, even if that means oppressing any, and all, opposition...even if that means, selectively handpicking the news...even if that means, targeting a sitting president of the United States with so much dis- R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that they go out of their way to make a mockery of even their own profession while doing it.

THEY DID THIS TO THEMSELVES...oh yes, stepping into it now -- heeeere's Chuuuuuck, for The Atlantic:

It’s Time for the Press to Stop Complaining—And to Start Fighting Back
A nearly 50-year campaign of vilification, inspired by Fox News's Roger Ailes, has left many Americans distrustful of media outlets. Now, journalists need to speak up for their work.

SEP 3, 2018


WARNING:  Classic LIB ignorance, coming right up --
From the very beginning, Ailes signaled that Fox News would offer an alternative voice, splitting with the conventions of television journalism. Take the word balanced. It sounded harmless enough. But how does one balance facts? A reporting-driven news organization might promise to be accurate, or honest, or comprehensive, or to report stories for an underserved community. But Ailes wasn’t building a reporting-driven news organization. The promise to be “balanced” was a coded pledge to offer alternative explanations, putting commentary ahead of reporting; it was an attack on the integrity of the rest of the media. Fox intended to build its brand the same way Ailes had built the brands of political candidates: by making the public hate the other choice more.


there's more --
Fox News adopted a similar strategy, rarely showcasing its own reporting or journalism. There are some great journalists at Fox, including Chris Wallace, Bret Baier, and Shep Smith, but it’s not an organization that emphasizes journalism. Instead, Ailes created an organization that focuses on attacking the “liberal media” whose “liberal bias” was ruining America. Almost any big story that was potentially devastating to a conservative was “balanced” with some form of whataboutism. The Ailes construction has been so effective that these days, I often get mail from viewers who say: Now that you’ve focused on all of President Trump’s misdeeds, you are biased if you don’t dedicate the same amount of time to Hillary Clinton’s misdeeds. It seems completely lost on this segment of the population that one person is the leader of the free world, and the other is a retiree living in the suburbs of New York City. 

and this --

The American press corps finds itself on the ropes because it allowed a nearly 50-year campaign of attacks inspired by the chair of Fox News to go unanswered.

Seriously, up-Chuck?

A fifty year campaign of attacks...unanswered?

THAT IS HILARIOUS.

You are so deep into your deep state dialog and deep throat talking points, clearly, the oxygen has been cut off from your brain.  The American press corps...on the ropes?  Which universe are you living in?  Your leftist media mafia controls all of the mainstream news feed, every single day!  This huff and puff piece is nothing more than leftist propaganda.

Where was the unbiased reporting on the umpteen acts of Executive overreach of the Obama Administration -- namely, you know, writing new immigration policy by Executive Order is a misuse of presidential power, right?  Where was the unbiased reporting of the over half of Americans who were not in favor of Obamacare, who had republican representation in Washington DC without one single vote in favor of it?  Where was the unbiased reporting of Hillary wiping clean any and all evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors, and even erasing her hard-drive, after using an insecure server (with China hacking in!), after her botched handling of Benghazi, when four Americans died, including an ambassador, as Secretary of State, and then trying to cover it all up with a lie about a video?    Where is the unbiased reporting of the fake dossier, and the long record of corruption within the DNC and the FBI?  Where is the unbiased reporting of the Clinton Foundation and its involvement of the sale of uranium to Russia?!

The thing is, there are just too many things to count.

The thing is, there are just too many things that  MY mainstream media intentionally, and manipulatively, fully IGNORES!   And this girl just can't ignore that.

Um, this may come as a surprise to you, up-chuck, but not everybody in America is a liberal.  We don't all drink the same kool-aid.


Oh, Up-Chuck, you have made my day -- can you really say this with a straight face..... 

Does this mean that other cable-news networks should follow Fox News’s lead and become advocates? That’s not the answer. Newspapers did this in the early 19th century, when they operated as arms of the political parties.
tears are rolling, this BS is so funny....

Instead of attacking rivals, or assailing critics—going negative,in the parlance of political campaigns—reporters need to showcase and defend our reporting. Every day, we need to do our job, check our facts, strive to be transparent, and say what we’re seeing. That’s what I’ve tried to do here. I’ve seen a nearly 50-year campaign to delegitimize the press, and I’m saying so. For years, I didn’t say a word about this publicly, and at times I even caught myself drawing false equivalencies because I was afraid of being labeled as biased. I know that stating the obvious will draw attacks, but I’ve also learned that the louder critics bark, the more they care about what’s being reported.

I’m not advocating for a more activist press in the political sense, but for a more aggressive one. That means having a lower tolerance for talking points, and a greater willingness to speak plain truths. It means not allowing ourselves to be spun, and not giving guests or sources a platform to spin our readers and viewers, even if that angers them. Access isn’t journalism’s holy grail—facts are. 

What a crock,  you mean, you're not advocating to continue to be an activist press, only an aggressive one?  What does that even mean?  Isn't that a contradiction -- how can facts have characteristics at all -- how do you tell of the facts, while being aggressive in telling the news at the same time?  Are you really telling the American people facts -- or are they just the facts packaged according to how you want the American people to hear it?

OH and I love love love your last line-- "Ask yourself why someone is so determined to convince you not to believe your lying eyes."

oh up-chuck todd -- you don't complete me.

But so happy you live in a country that allows you to live within your four walls of delusional reporting of the truth, all -- how do you say -- all fifty years of it;  that this country celebrates the independence and freedom that gives you every right to believe in something, even if that means sacrificing everything -- even if that everything is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Indeed,  facts are stubborn things, even for whiners like up-Chuck Todd.

oh my, what a good day in G land, what a good day, indeed.
if it's fall, we must be having a ball, and how.

the end.

Make it a Good Day, G
