Dear Mr. President: Mocking Christine Blasey Ford isn’t helping your cause

Published

on

A campaign rally may be the place to gather support and get wild cheers from the base, but President Trump needs to stop using it as a venue to discuss Christine Blasey Ford. When he does, his showmanship takes over and the result is a mockery.

It may be good fodder for his fervent fans, but it makes it harder for Senators to get the votes they need to confirm Brett Kavanaugh. Moreover, it taints those who end up voting for him, making it harder for them to win their elections during these extremely important midterm elections.

People don’t vote for Supreme Court justices. The President does not need to paint Kavanaugh’s accuser in a negative light at campaign rallies because it cannot have a positive effect on the outcome. Somebody needs to tell him he’s hurting his cause.

Many on Capitol Hill and in leftist mainstream media have gone after his comments, but the most glaring rebuke came from someone who has been in the President’s corner since before he won the GOP nomination.

‘Fox & Friends’ host criticizes Trump for mocking Kavanaugh accuser

https://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/409619-fox-friends-host-rips-trump-for-mocking-kavanaugh-accuser“The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides. Last night he chose to blow it,” Kilmeade said on “Fox & Friends,” adding that the FBI could be concluding its investigation into Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday.

“I wonder about the wisdom, as much as the crowd loved it, I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that.”

Kilmeade said that there were clear holes in Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations, but cautioned the president against going after her publicly.

The President has a right to be skeptical of Ford and her testimony. It’s all starting to seem more and more like the political hit job Kavanaugh described than an actual victim seeking justice. However, being skeptical and handling it in a professional manner is very different from outright mockery of such a delicate subject.

All he has to do is allow the process, as convoluted as it has been, to complete its course. By attacking the alleged victim during a campaign rally, he made Republicans’ jobs that much harder and gave fuel to Democrats for their midterm election campaigns.

Ford’s accusations are seeming less and less credible, which is why the President needs to let the focus be on them and not on his mocking of her. There are times when he doesn’t have to be the center of attention. This is one of them.

    While Trump’s comedy act last night in Mississippi was funny, and he had Christine Ford pegged perfectly, he made a mistake in joking about her credibility, especially since just last Friday he was saying that she was credible and courageous. Trump did not help Kavanaugh and should have kept his mouth shut, something he is incapable of doing.

Why we need to believe Ephesians 6:12 today, perhaps more than ever before

Ephesians 6:12

The idea of doing a podcast has been weighing on me lately. It’s not really even a long-term itch; after it reached my mind just a few days ago, that turned into a very stout and concentrated calling that hit my heart like a ton of bricks. It went from not being a consideration to being something I absolutely had to do in less than a week.

The first episode is done and we’re ready for people to hear it and give feedback.

This podcast’s primary topic is going to be Ephesians 6:12. If you’re not familiar with the verse, you may wonder how we intend to do an enire sustained series of podcasts surrounding a single verse. Upon reading it, you should realize that what it suggests and the topics it encompasses could easily be turned into a daily show if necessary.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

At some point, we will be moving this and other episodes we do to a true podcast hosting site. We’ll also distribute it to multiple places for download and direct listening, but to get things rolling we’ll be using YouTube and Facebook to publish the podcasts.

This one is general in its focus. Future episodes will be more specific. We want to get feedback as soon and often as possible.

When we realize we’re not fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, our perspectives on how to wage this battle become more clear. Hopefully, this show will be a blessing to you as much as it has been to us.

A brief history of the fraud of socialism

A brief history of the fraud of socialism

FreedomToons and PragerU have some new videos that eviscerate the tired old lie that socialism has never been tried before.

The story began in the Jamestown colony in 1607, well-nigh over 400 years ago. As always, the system failed to work. Then it was tried in the Plymouth colony in 1620 with more misery and death as the same result.

And on, and on, and on, and on…… Until 4 Centuries later, with the National Socialist-Left wanting to give it a go one more time! Because if there is something about the Left’s flawed system of fraud, its going to have to work eventually. Goodness knows they would never lie about something like that. It’s not as though implementation of their disastrous ideology will yield them tremendous power over the people. [Yes, this is sarcasm]

“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”
― Ronald Reagan

Now that the scourge of mankind and history greatest fraud is hopefully on it’s way out in Venezuela, the clarion call that it wasn’t really socialism will soon be heard everywhere. The fraud of socialism always devolves down to complete control of society because wealth redistribution always requires coercion. Some have already tried to claim that it’s totalitarian instead of being socialist as those are somehow mutually exclusive.

Most likely this is the beginnings of the usual tactic of claiming that it was somehow ‘rightwing’ because the Left will claim it to be so, and why would they lie about something like that? Never mind that they’ve tried to pull the same feat of illogic for decades. Beginning with the lie that a certain National Socialist German Workers’ Party wasn’t actually a National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

When socialism supposedly isn’t socialism.

Everyone knows that it never starts out with grandiose promises of free health care, free college, free housing and even free money isn’t the usual way of selling that fraudulent ideology.

Oh wait, that IS how it starts out.

But at least there is no talk about curtailing civil liberties such as free-speech, due process and property rights.

Then again, that IS happening once again.

Well, rest assured gun confiscation to keep everyone safe is never on the table when a socialist system is being contemplated.

Oh well, that also took place in Venezuela for the cause of safety just as it’s being sold in the states.

We should have no worries, the socialists solemnly inform us that we’re not going to become another Jamestown, Plymouth, New harmony Indiana, La Réunion Texas, Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei, Partido Comunista de Cuba, Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela, etc, etc. There certainly wouldn’t be any reason for them to lie about something like that, given that giving it another go in the states would yield them immense power over everyone’s property and Lives now would it?

Polling for dollars.

We’re supposed to listen to pollsters who can formulate their work to get the results they want. Ask the question the right way or alter the sample composition and you can supposedly get 97% of the people wanting strict control of their property. Never mind that in reality 97% the country has never agreed on anything else.

The Takeaway.

The fine people at PragerU have put together a short video making the point about the total fraud of socialism:

Socialism Ruined Venezuela

Published on Feb 6, 2019
In his State of the Union address, President Trump condemned Venezuela’s socialist policies and vowed that America would never be a socialist country. Why? Because, as Venezuela shows, socialism always destroys countries.

Please do Liberty a favour and show these videos to anyone who is even contemplating falling for this socialistic snake oil. It’s time to finally relegate this fraud to the ash heap of history once and for all.

The magical birth canal

The magical birth canal

Choice42 makes the point that an arbitrary point in life doesn’t suddenly convey humanity and basic human rights.

The contention from the Left is that there is some magical demarcation point in the life of a child. That before birth it’s just a fetus, clump of cells or a ‘parasite’.

Then in a flash, it suddenly becomes a human being, from mere passage of the birth canal. This video from a couple of months ago illustrates that this is an absurd contention.

Bonus video

 

Leftists assert that like those on the Pro-Liberty Right that they want to protect the children. But only after the life changing passage of the magical birth canal. This video makes the point that the Left can’t have it both ways.
