Racism or Values?        


Individual black lives matter. Power-hungry “Black Lives Matter,” does not. Brecksville’s June 9th “Rally for Justice” organizers misstepped by using the BLM logo on Facebook for publicity.

Was their intent to support reform by protesting a tragic case of police brutality? Or was it to politicize the lie of “systemic discrimination” and “white privilege theory” by co-opting a Marxist, police-hating anti-family organization?

BLM website’s hateful, divisive content profits from people’s ignorance and funnels more money to the DNC than to needy humans. Affiliation with radical BLM was cause enough for local administration to compensate with law enforcement in riot gear who acted professionally despite enduring vulgar insults.

Rather than virtue signaling of raised signs and fists, did planners consider projects that address what really matters to metropolitan Cleveland’s black community? Why not tutor or mentor struggling children; volunteer to feed the homeless; visit prison inmates; hold BLM signs outside abortion clinics?

Injustice answered with anger, vengeance and shallow behavior leads to social and cultural destruction. Civil dialogue using critical thinking to problem solve is harder. Obscured by a failed education system, accepting the truth of our flawed shared history takes common sense and discernment.

This is no longer about racism or diversity. It’s a choice between cultural Marxism and American values. Thinking that middle class values-based people of any origin are not welcome in our community is myopic. If you believe in Liberty, E Pluribus Unum and In God We Trust, welcome to Brecksville!

This is an excellent explanation why I haven’t watched an NFL game in four years. Like our politicians the NFL takes its fans for granted


Refresher” NFL History…history not often reported or leaked to the ticket holders. I hope this helps you; it opened my eyes, to better understand when and why the public’s respect for the NFL organization started to crumble….

* In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling before each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.

* In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

* In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

* In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure “eye black for breast cancer awareness.

* In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem..)

*In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

* In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

 

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression? It seems quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue: For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily, for being cops, or for the Memory of 9/11.

BUT they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for the American People, if it will help mollify a particular Group and its supporters. That is who and what the NFL now has shown itself to be.

 

Pass this post along to all your friends and family, if you believe it worthy of sharing. Honor our military; too many of whom have come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.

Repugnant


The word in the subject line is one that I came up with to describe the following link. I’ve changed my mind – there are no words that describe these animals or their repulsive behavior. Depending on their news source many Americans have not seen this yet. Many will never see it. For the most part the main stream media is still referring to what is taking place as a demonstration and the participants as protesters. What is taking place across the nation is no longer about the death of George Floyd, or the cop charged with his murder. What we are now witnessing is an attack on the foundation of our Republic, the constitution, and the rule of law. This man from Dallas was beaten to near death because he dared to protect his business.

Many are beginning to understand that the government is unable, or in some cases unwilling, to protect us. And all the while trying desperately to deny us our Second Amendment rights. Good luck with that.

“The Evil that Men Do”


Founder and CEO Mr. Trogdon,

Your Publisher’s Notebook, “The Evil that Men Do” is a lazy attempt to encourage feel-good legislation that won’t move the needle on mass shootings. You question the “wisdom of letting just about anybody owning an assault weapon.” You go on to say you never felt the need to use a “machine gun.” Is this your definition of an assault weapon because if it is you should sleep well knowing that machine guns were banned in 1934. Or did you mean to say semi-automatic weapons? You fail to articulate what exactly your definition of an assault weapon is. Those on the left do the same thing, by design.

Did you know there have been many more mass shooters, (killed four or more,) who have used semi-automatic hand guns than semi-automatic rifles? If the left is successful at banning the long guns how long will it be before they come after the hand guns. I’ll tell you: immediately after the next mass shooting occurs.

And how about the proposed “red flag” laws? Who exactly determines who’s not fit to own a fire arm? Will due process be adhered to? We’ve seen the left try and push their way around due process during the Kavanaugh hearings. If the left had their way anyone attending a Trump rally or wearing a MAGA hat would be banned from owning a gun. I question Congress’ ability to craft legislation that will prevent mass shooting while maintaining the rights of freedom loving Americans.  There are too many dishonest brokers in Congress. Give them an inch and they’ll be back for a mile.

In my opinion, you left out two options on your reader poll, “what should be done to prevent mass shootings?”

  1. Eliminate gun free zones. These are areas that these sick animals know they can go where there will be the least resistance. They’re free to kill until law enforcement arrives.
  2. Craft policies that will help rebuild the family unit. This would also start the healing of a very divided nation.

The left will never be satisfied until there is a government confiscation of all guns. Any legislation has to be tight enough to ensure the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Anything less should be seen as unacceptable.

Al Sharpton the race baiter


For decades Al Sharpton has masqueraded as a civil rights leader when in actuality he’s a race baiter who exploits the African-American community for personal gain. He and fellow race profiteer Jesse Jackson have helped build a culture of grievance that encourages and promotes victimization in those they claim to be helping. When there’s misery to exploit and money to be made we know these corporate shakedown artists are anxious to assist. Thankfully shysters like these two don’t always succeed. Jussie Smollett lied about being attacked by two white Trump supporters and he did it for personal gain. He was exposed as a fake victim. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford lied about being sexually assaulted by then Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanaugh 35 years ago. Rule of law prevailed and Kavanaugh is the newest Justice on the Supreme Court. Ford, too, was exposed as a fake victim. And we can’t forget the ultimate manipulator of victimhood, Colin Kaepernick. His disrespect for the American flag had nothing to do with his claim of police brutality towards black men. He did it for the money. Reports indicate he has received tens of millions of dollars for his anti-American behavior. Not bad for a mediocre quarterback.

The party of victimhood, the Democrat Party, takes the African-American vote for granted and have done nothing to improve the lives of these constituents for fifty years. Now the party is expanding its search for new victims to exploit. This is a party that has also abandoned the middle class. They require an ever-growing underclass of voters who are unable or unwilling to provide for themselves. Open borders and free healthcare for illegal aliens are policies designed to attract those who will instantly become dependent on government. These new victims are future voters for the party of “free stuff.” Of course, nothing is free – the middle class would be picking up this tab. Don’t believe for a moment that Democrats care about the wellbeing of those flooding across our border because they couldn’t care less.  Power is all they care about and they will gladly compromise the security and freedom of the American people to ensure it.

The left relies on a compliant and corrupt main stream media to advance this culture of victimhood.  Democrats have another powerful ally helping to bolster this charade and that’s academia. Many of today’s universities have sold out to progressivism at the expense of academic achievement. There now exists a campus culture of victimhood that is encouraged and promoted by some very unimpressive educators and administrators. Students lacking in self-respect are being convinced that it’s easier to become a victim than to rely on personal responsibility. Rather than reaching their full potential, many of these students will embrace groups identified by grievance and in some cases, [Antifa], violence. Many of these students are the same thugs that shut down conservative voices on campuses across the nation. This behavior is a display of weakness. Those attempting to shut down debate are losing the debate or attempting to hide something. These fake victims are in training to become members of the Democrat Party.

Is 2020 an important election for the future of our Republic? – you bet! Freedom or Socialism.

Is the Democrat Party in bed with Satan?


Hey Democrats,

Your party has long sought to remove God from all aspects of our lives and replace him with government. Watch as two unimpressive members of the House Judiciary Committee, one who recently became the Chairman and the other fool who ate fried chicken on national television in an attempt to embarrass  AG William Barr, prove the point. Your party no longer hides it’s evil intent and their voters silence is deafening.

Today’s Progressive Democrat’s, “Hail Satan”

Sample One,  Democrats Delete God

Sample Two, “you kill them now or you kill them later”

The Jussie Smollett affect ‘victimhood’, a symptom of what is wrong in America.


Anyone surprised by Jussie Smollett’s hate crime hoax has not been paying attention to the liberal rot spreading through America’s culture. Victimhood is the new weapon being deployed by the left and sadly, in many cases, it’s being used effectively. Reports indicate this hoax was designed to increase Smollett’s popularity and his salary. He smeared half the country that voted for Trump, including millions who also voted for Obama, for personal gain. Not only is he a liar, he’s a self-serving greedy liar.

Recently we’ve witnessed several women use this tactic when accusing Justice Bret Kavanaugh of sexual assault. One of these fake victims even raised $800,000 from a go-fund-me account. And how about presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren lying about her Native American heritage. This hoax was to help secure a high paying job in the liberal bubble of academia. And we must not forget the king of victimhood, Colin Kaepernick. This hoax led to a lucrative TV add and a huge pay off from the NFL. All thanks to being a fake victim.

This victimhood culture is being promoted on college campuses across the nation. This culture is being pursued and encouraged by many unremarkable college professors and administrators. Students who lack self-respect are being convinced that it’s easier to become a victim than to rely on personal responsibility. Rather than graduating with enthusiasm and confidence many students are gravitating to groups that openly display resentment. This victimization disease cripples the student’s ability to compete in a global market while doing great damage to our country. Many of these pretend victims will become dependent on government. Democrats depend on their votes.

America’s descent from exceptionalism would not have been possible without a compliant and corrupt main stream media. President Trump was spot on when he said “fake news is the enemy of the people.” With GOD’s help let’s pray he will “Make America Great Again.”

The End of our Society is now Upon us, May God Forgive us for Allowing this to Happen!


The State of New York just passed a law that allows abortions right up to the moment of birth. As the bill was signed Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Democratic legislature stood up applauding in a ghoulish celebration of death.

Not to be outdone a Virginia Democratic state legislator proposed a bill that would allow abortions right up to the time of dilation. Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam went even further. If at the time of birth an abortion is unsuccessful, and the baby is delivered alive, he or she will be kept comfortable until the decision is made to end the child’s life. What Northam describes is infanticide, the killing of a baby outside the womb. Doctors are currently serving life sentences for this type of barbaric behavior. Thankfully there was enough human decency left in Virginia’s state legislature to kill this obscene bill.

What happened to the Democrats who wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare?” New York’s law now makes it legal for non-doctors to perform abortions. Apparently, safety is no longer a concern. Being rare was never a concern. They now want abortions whenever, wherever and for any reason. The mask is off and evil is on full display. Babies feel pain in the second trimester. New York’s law allows fully developed babies to be crushed and sucked out of their mother’s womb.

The term “slippery slope” doesn’t begin to describe where this criminal behavior might lead. If the left succeeds in making the killing of these viable human beings acceptable who might be next? The infirm who are old? The infirm who are young? And who decides? The death panels that Barack Obama dismissed as Republican illusions have arrived.

Eight days since the signing of the bill and not a word from Pope Francis.

A Society that Kills it Young and helpless does not Deserve to Exist! If we don’t stop this God Will!


What is next aborting (I mean killing) babies that are born but not yet taken home?

Apparently New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has opened the floodgates when it comes to aborting babies right up to the moment of delivery. Not to be outdone the Virginia legislature is proposing a bill that will be just as lethal to human life. Watch as the author of the bill struggles to find words that will hide how grotesque this legislation is. Then watch as Virginia’s so called “moderate” Governor makes a pathetic attempt to justify what’s being done. Listen how he calmly explains the possible delivery of the child and how he or she will be made comfortable before termination. The term “slippery slope” doesn’t begin to describe what this criminal behavior could lead to. If the left gets its way and it becomes acceptable to kill babies what group will be next? The infirm who are old? The infirm who are young? And who decides? The death panels that Barack Obama laughed about have arrived.

Shouldn’t someone let the Pope know what’s going on.

Abortion in the last trimester is Immoral — Period the End!


The state of New York has passed a law that permits the killing of a baby right up to the moment of birth. At the time the bill was signed Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature stood in unison and acted out a ghoulish celebration.

Equally disturbing was a subsequent interview with New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan as he struggled to give a full throated condemnation to the Catholic governor who signed the bill. Dolan sounded more like a politician than a leader of the Catholic Church. So far the progressive Pope Francis has not weighed in.
