My wife is hooked on the television show Law And Order (SVU). She not only watches all of the current episodes but all of the reruns. I avoid prime-time television like the plague because of the liberal bias displayed on just about everything that you watch these days. While she is watching television I try to work on my computer. To be fair Law And Order, at times, can be great drama and is well acted when they stick to rape and murder, which is what the show is primarily about. However they never miss an opportunity to promote their liberal bias on such issues as abortion, illegal immigration, homosexuality, the transgender issue, Islam, and even abu ghraib and the Bush administration of all things, Whenever they do this I just get up and leave the room. I want to be entertained and not indoctrinated. My wife gets mad at me because she thinks that I am too nitpicky. According to her I should just ignore it. I have an ear and an eye for bias and the reason I get so upset is because I realize the impact that this garbage is having on the uninformed and young impressionable minds. For example today I was watching an episode of Law And Order in which young children were being found murdered. At first you are led to believe that a pedophile serial killer is on the loose. It turned out that the killer was a supposedly bigoted anti-illegal immigration white guy who was killing anchor babies. The children of illegal immigrants. Correct me if I am wrong but I have never heard of anything like that happening for real in the United States ever. As the officers were investigating the murders they reassured the illegals that they were not concerned with their illegal status. Of course they called them undocumented and not illegal. On another episode a Muslim woman was found burning to death in a back alley. At first you are led to believe that it was an honor killing by a Muslim male. You guessed it. In the end it was a hate filled bigoted anti-Muslim white guy who killed the Muslim woman. Honor killings are on the rise in the U.S. and have happened regularly across the Muslim world. A report issued November 10, 2015 estimated that between 23 and 27 honor killings occur each year in the U.S. Ninety-one percent of victims in North America are murdered for being “too Westernized”. In murders of daughters 18 years or younger, a father is almost always involved. By comparison in the year from the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, which was in January 2015 to December of that year there were twenty-one threats made against Muslims. Fifteen Simple assaults, eleven cases of criminal mischief, and two cases of arson which resulted in zero deaths. There has been an increase in hate crimes against Muslims since September 11, 2001. For example in the year 2000 there were 28 anti-Muslim acts. By comparison there were 1,109 anti-Jewish acts. In the year 2001 there were 481 anti-Muslim acts as opposed to 1043 anti-Jewish acts. The number of anti-Muslim acts have decreased since 2001 but anti-Jewish acts continue to far outnumber anti-Islamic acts.

The so-called Women's March occurred this week, which was a disguise for an anti Trump march and of course funded by George Soros. True women's rights has always been important to me. I became aware of the the issue as a teenager when I saw how my Aunt Didi was treated after the death of my parents. She was trying to raise my brother Mark and I, along with her own two children as a divorced single woman. Didi had a good job for a woman in the 1960's but men doing the exact same job were paid more money. I remembered how my mom suffered physical and verbal abuse from my father, although in fairness to him, this only occurred after his mental breakdown. Either way I didn't like it and whenever I have seen women abused since then it bothers me. I was taught to revere and respect women. When I was in the military and men cheated on their wives there was an attitude among men, and some women for that matter that when a man cheated it was expected. Boys will be boys. When a woman cheated however she was a whore or a slut. I have always been for equality in the work place as long as women can perform the physical aspects of a job that are required to get the job done and is not passed off to a man for the sake of political correctness. Sexual harassment in the workplace is never acceptable and as far as I am concerned I would vote for a woman for any political office in the land as long as I agree with them politically. Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria are good examples from history that women make strong leaders.
I have always opposed the modern women's rights movement because they are an arm of the Democrat Party and have nothing to do with women's rights. They tout how much they are for a woman's right to choose but the only choice they believe in is the right to kill their children through all nine months of pregnancy. It is a cult of death. They do not celebrate the right of a woman who chooses to carry their child to term. If they did they would have welcomed pro-life women's groups who were prohibited from marching with them. They look down on women who stay home and raise their own children. Women who choose to carry a gun, join the NRA, become a Republican or join the Tea Party. Last but not least who vote for Trump. To me a real feminist is a woman who has the freedom to choose any path in life that they want to. Men are free to do that. Why not women?

I predicted Donald Trumps victory early into his campaign although I wasn't a Trump supporter at that time. Even before Trump I felt that 2016 was the year of the outsider for the Republican Party. Someone like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, or Ben Carson. It wasn't going to be an insider like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, or Lindsey Graham. Marco Rubio might actually have had the best chance, in the outsider group, if he had not supported amnesty for illegals. People would ask me what I thought of Hillary's chances and I would tell them that she was a screw up and had always been a screw up. She was the absolute worst candidate that the Democrats could have nominated. Hillary was not Bill Clinton and she was only in that position because she had married him in the first place. Ironically Hillary might have won this election if she had followed his advice. In the eleventh hour she rejected the advice of the very man that ushered her to the pinnacle of political power. To borrow one of her own infamous words, she was deplorable to far too many people. Because of her character flaws and personal corruption she was deplorable to many in her own Party. Even though the demographics of America are quickly changing I believed that there were still enough conservative, angry, bitter Americans like myself out there who proudly cling to their guns and religion. We were just begging for the right candidate to come along and lead us to victory, Trump wasn't the greatest conservative choice but he tapped into the average American's anger and frustration with politics as usual. If Trump had been a little more eloquent and had been able project a Reaganesque vision of America, it is my belief that he would have not only won a landslide in the electoral college but in the popular vote as well. We cannot discount the impact of the lamestream media and the many lies they told on Trump. Such as the fake news story that he had made fun of a physically challenged reporter, which he had not. However I had my moments of doubt. It seemed that Trump was his own worst enemy. I was scared that his mouth was going to screw up his chances to beat a really bad candidate in Hillary Clinton. It was my belief, and I still believe, that we had reached a vital crossroads for America. If we went down the Hillary road we would have passed a point of no return for this country. The Trump road would either be a stay of execution, or hopefully a step in the right direction for America's eventual recovery. I am going to accept on faith that it is a step in the right direction. Although I wanted to believe in my original hunch that Trump would win, I wanted to be prepared for the worst possible outcome. This is why I wrote a farewell letter to my Facebook friends. My intent was to withdraw my tacit consent from our government as far as it was possible and to be prepared to defend my freedom if I heard the jackbooted knock on my door. I swore that I would never vote again. Luckily, I never had to post that letter. In the last two months before the election I was so nervous about outcome that I no longer watched the news and I refused to watch election night results until my nephew called to let me know that Trumps election appeared to be in the bag. My nerves just couldn't take it anymore. My love of country is just too great. Now that Trump will be inaugurated in a few days I am writing a different kind of farewell letter. Obama gave his "Farewell Address" the other day. Which was his usual distortion of the facts and history, along with an unbelievable hubris on his part. The following is my farewell address.
I am saying farewell to the heavy dark cloud of gloom that has hung over this country for the last eight years. Farewell to the most destructive foreign policy in American history. Farewell to the shame of watching Russian planes buzzing our ships with impunity, Farewell to China giving us the finger in the South China sea and Iran blatantly capturing and mistreating our sailors. It also gives me great pleasure to finally say farewell to ISIS. A group of the most evil people on earth that could have easily been eliminated within a month with our military power. Farewell to a policy of disrespect and mistreatment to Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East. Farewell to the gradual weakening of our military. Farewell to a Commander-in Chief not worthy of our military. Farewell to illegal immigration and to the drain on our economy. Farewell to the economic and civil enslavement of our people caused by Obamacare and the anchor weight holding down our economy. Farewell to unnecessary business regulations that suppress entrepreneurship in America. Farewell to year after year of anemic economic growth, chronic unemployment, underemployment, job loss, and high taxes. Farewell to ridiculous energy policies. Farewell to political correctness which is literally causing the deaths of thousands of Americans. Farewell to a long line of political scandals, corruption and cover-up ignored by the lamestream media. Farewell to Obama's pen and phone. I know that I am probably forgetting something but most of all I say farewell to the angriest Black man in America. Farewell to a man who sends government representatives to the funerals of thugs but avoids the funeral of real American heroes like the plague. Farewell to a man who finds the game of golf more important than dealing with national tragedy and crisis. A man who hated America so much that his hatred divided it along lines of race, gender, and economic class. A man that constantly felt the need to remind us of where we have been rather than to acknowledge how far we have come and the real promise of America. A country that has evolved to the point that it could actually put the color line behind it and vote for a Black president. A man that as a Black man had the moral authority to appeal to the better angels of our nature but instead constantly rubbed salt in old wounds. I will say farewell to a man that feels the need to constantly apologize for the greatest country in the world. A country that has not been a curse but a blessing to the world. If we were such a blight on the world people would not be risking everything, including their very lives, to come here. I will end this farewell with a quotation from the greatest president of my lifetime. "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to the children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children, what it was once like in the United States when men were free".

The hubris of Barack Obama knows no bounds. In a Sixty Minutes interview he said that there were no scandals in his administration. Let's see, oh yes, that is if you omit Operation Fast and Furious in which Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress, Benghazi. in which four brave Americans died and the narrative was created out of thin air that they died because of an anti-Muslim video. This lie was pushed for months. They also died because Obama pushed the lie that al qaeda was dead after the death of Usama Bin Laden and sending help to them might hurt his chances for re-election in 2012. The IRS targeting conservative organizations before the 2012 presidential election. The Department of Justice seizing Associated Press phone records and the phone and email records of Fox News reporter James Rosen. The General Services Administration was busted in 2012 for spending $823,000 on an extravagantly decadent conference in Las Vegas. Federal law was broken by the EPA in promoting a regulation. The EPA poisoned a Colorado river. Hillary's e-mail scandal. If Obama communicated with her under the use of a pseudonym and their email exchanges involved classified information he would have violated the Espionage Act. Obama lied to the American people about paying ransom to Iran for hostages and lied about the Iran treaty. The NSA conducted mass surveillance against American citizens without a warrant. A clear violation of the Fourth Amendment. Much of his stimulus money vanished without a trace and cannot be accounted for. Oh yes, Obamacare, remember the promise that you could keep your doctor if you wanted to. Obama rewrote and delayed the law often, cutting Congress out of the loop completely. There were 70 changes by 2016. If Obamacare had been enforced as written it would have ended on it's own after only two years. Obama's tampering with the law was blatantly illegal. The website that cost a billion dollars and another billion dollars that was spent to fix it after it crashed, The Bowe Bergdahl scandal. Soldiers died looking for a deserter who was treated like a hero by Obama. To top it off Obama released five dangerous terrorist captives to get him back. The Veterans Administration death list scandal. The term "crony capitalism" was popularized after the Solyndra scandal and finally barring aging veterans access to the WW2 Memorial. This was an attempt to make American's feel the pain over a partial government shutdown during a false budget fight with Congress.
Obama was also delusional when he claimed in the interview that he had to take the blame for not doing a better PR job in promoting his agenda. He didn't have to promote it. His sycophants in the lap dog media and Hollywood were doing the job for him. Republican presidents don't have that privilege. Even with their attempts to sway the public, opinion polls consistently revealed that the American people were against everything that Obama was for. Obamacare, amnesty for illegals, the Iran nuke deal, the Obama foreign policy, same sex marriage, homosexuals in the military, the weakening of our military over eight years, our energy policies, transgender bathrooms, women in combat units and pretty much everything Obama and the Democrats were for. All of these things I have mentioned were forced down our throats by the Democratic congress from 2009 to 2011, Federal judges, the Supreme Court and Obama's pen. These policies led to the a Republican sweep in the House of Representatives in 2010 and a Republican sweep of the Senate in 2014. Finally the emergence and election of a non-politician called Donald Trump in 2016. This was the ultimate rejection of Obama's policies. It is laughable when Obama says that the Republican's stood in his way. We elected the Republican's in 2010 to stop Obama. They did nothing but give him everything he wanted. Their excuse was that they could do nothing until we gave them the Senate. Then they could stop him, they said. We gave them the Senate in 2014 and again they did nothing to stop him. Our frustration at the establishment Republican Congress led to the election of Donald Trump, who was supposedly the outsider and the antithesis of establishment Republican sellout politicians. The moral of the story is that so-called Hope and Change was forced on America and we didn't like it and never accepted it. The bottom line is, and has always been, that liberals have to lie, deceive, and spin to get elected. They can't tell the truth because they would never win otherwise. When elected the means justifies the end to force their crap down our throats. By any means necessary, even if it is illegal or immoral.The election of Donald Trump was the American people saying no to all of it. Whether Trump is liberal or not it was ultimately a triumph for conservatism and the American people.

I was watching a couple of episodes of ABC's show What Would You Do? hosted by John Quiñones. In one episode an attractive Middle Eastern woman, an actor dressed in western attire, was having trouble changing a tire on a city street by a busy sidewalk. Many men stopped to offer the woman assistance. The same woman dressed in a Muslim hi jab was ignored by many men as they walked by. However there were quite a few men that stopped to help. In another episode a Muslim woman tried to order pastries in a bakery from a bigoted clerk who was also an actor. The clerk was refusing the woman service and shouting insults at the woman about her appearance and her Muslim faith. Saying she was not an American. Far too many people did not get involved or they overtly supported the actions of the clerk. Many of the customers however openly supported the Muslim woman and berated the clerk. The show asks the question, "What would you do"? I know myself well enough to know that I would have helped the woman in both scenarios change the tire and I would have come to the defense of the Muslim woman in the bakery. My parents instilled courtesy and respect in me for all people when I was growing up and Jesus taught us to love the sinner but hate the sin. The Bible teaches us to help everyone regardless of what we might think of them. The story of the Good Samaritan is a prime example. Jesus established a relationship with everyone he met and did not condemn anyone except for hypocrites. He did not hesitate to condemn the hypocritical behavior of the Pharisees and Sadducee's. Although he did not condemn the sinner he was not accepting of their sin. When he met the Samaritan woman at the well he established a rapport with her and showed her the way to salvation. Just the fact that he even spoke to her was unprecedented because Jews did not associate with Samaritans. However Jesus did not condone her sin of having had five husbands and the fact that she was living with a man out of wedlock. Nor did he condone the sin of the adulterous woman who was about to be stoned. Her life was spared because of his mercy and intercession. After her life was spared he admonished the woman to go and sin no more. Finally, he does not condone my sin and it is up to me to go and sin no more.
I have beliefs that are pretty much set in stone. The Muslim religion is straight out of the pits of hell in my opinion. It is dangerous and we should be constantly on guard against those who might become radicalized. Until there is reason to believe otherwise we should treat everyone with love and respect regardless of how they believe or how they look however. I would never mistreat a Muslim, a Jehovah's Witness, a Mormon, Buddhist, a Satan worshiper, or any other member of a religion that I disagree with. Nor would I mistreat a homosexual, or transsexual, Although I do not like piercings and tattoo's, I would never mistreat a person that has them. I have violent disagreements with Democrats but I try to treat them with courtesy and respect. Unfortunately the left seems to imply that it does not matter how well that we on the right may treat those that we disagree with. We must not only accept the sinner but the sin, or the falsehood if you will. To them the great sin is not only how you act but how you think. A more proper name for the show sould be "What Would You Think"? This is why we will never be able to reach any real accommodation with the left and why we should not even try. Our goal should be to please God and not man.
