Since long titles wreak havoc with publishers I abandoned my first choice for this piece. See if you like it – sing along with me!
Five negative articles, four calling birds, three French hens, too many candidates - and a Donald in a pear tree
Recently a blogger asked me why I wrote five fairly negative articles about Donald Trump. I corrected him by saying I wrote five articles, but one was positive and one simply included Trump, but he was not the subject of the piece.
I rather like the Donald, but I have serious doubts about his ability to be president. He could win, but will America win?
I loved the story about how he let a family use his private jet to transport a very sick child to the hospital even while none of the major airlines was willing to help.
Today I heard him describe what he would do for veterans. I heard about his faith and his connection to the Presbyterian Church.
He said the evangelicals love him, but that’s the same 60 million who stayed home or voted for Barack in 2012. It is the same group that is sliding into wholesale apostasy faster than the speed of betrayal. Main line historic denominations are practically unrecognizable and have slid off their foundations under the influence of liberalism for an entire generation. Not much to brag about here. FULL POST

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions” – Anon.
After entering Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama Friday August 21, 2015 what followed were a personal pronoun fest and the now familiar story of the conversion of a government building to a plush hotel. Trump used the pronouns I, me, and my, about 300 times (give or take) but nothing much new was offered or any different than previous speeches.
After bashing China, Mexico, democrats and a good number of republicans the rest of the speech took on the nature of a road to riches rally led by a financial guru who verily promises that everyone will emerge rich and prosperous if they only follow the plan – and the leader.
The crowd cheered to the promise of a mighty revival of military might and the oft repeated campaign slogan and promise to - “Make America Great Again.”
It is here that I am forced to start with a paragraph from my last article; it is a statement that undoubtedly I will have to make for the next year and a half until the election period is finished FULL POST

Obviously, this title is a hook, I have no idea what kind of a watch Donald Trump wears, but I don’t know what kind of moral compass he follows either – does anyone?
Mr Trump’s cockiness has brought him to the top of the endless polls as the candidate with the toughest rhetoric against everything the leftists, liberals and lawless bunch think is peachy keen.
But, is it anything more than rhetoric? Is there any substance, past record, long standing position, moral perseverance or even believability to anything the Donald says?
On closer examination it seems that Trump is a political Indiana Jones - he is just making it up as he goes along.
The latest wishy washy uninformed proclamation is a statement made on CNN that he would like to see some of Planned Parenthood’s programs and services continued and given ample funding.
Live Action’s Lila Rose says “Trump’s vacillation on Planned Parenthood funding is deeply troubling, and reveals an ignorance about their horrific abortion practices–their killing over 320,000 children a year, and bartering to sell the body parts of those they abort. It’s obvious from Mr. Trump’s comments that he has not watched the Planned Parenthood videos released by Center for Medical Progress. That is the only way he could recommend to continue funding this abortion conglomerate that is totally unnecessary and any organization that engages in these human rights abuses does not deserve a penny of tax payers’ money. It would be better spent on health services that would save the lives of women and babies. I challenge Mr. Trump to watch the videos.” FULL POST

Long before Barack Obama swept into office as a pop-culture icon in 2008 I had serious doubts about his record, his honesty and his intentions about many issues including “gay marriage’ and abortion. I tabled many of my doubts naively believing that the American people would see through his inexperience, dishonesty and hidden motives and leave him behind.
How wrong can a man be?
I will not make that mistake again. As a writer I will speak up loud and early with my doubts before we repeat the horrible errors of 2008 and 2012.
The power of the American people to place their favorite sons or celebrated and heralded favorite candidates in office remains unquestioned. The decisions are ours to make.
It is the long range wisdom of our choices that must be examined now – America is on the threshold of its own demise if we repeat the mistakes of the past.
This alone, is my motive for offering my six reasons why I believe that giving the republican nomination to Donald Trump would be a mistake on the level of giving Barack Obama a third term.

Not everyone is titillated with the recent GOP debates in Cleveland. Critics from the pragmatic to the hyper-critical, analysts and pundits alike are weighing every nuance from the serious political and policy questions to the humor.
Hultberg says, “Unfortunately this two-tiered debate was just one more exercise in the miserable irrelevancy of the media’s handling of “political affairs” in America today.”
The Debate is Not about Trump - it is about the Nation
The Donald was pummeled by Megyn Kelly on his use of words to describe women that he may not like. While it may not be a national issue, it is a very serious issue with women. Now some are crying foul and have decided it may have been directed by Fox’s execs or worse by Kelly herself to bring Trump down in the polls. FULL POST

The Jackal is in the dog family (Canis Aureus) and is a ravenous medium sized canine that scavenges and is capable of eating just about anything.
In a “Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide” to one of the latest modernistic video games is a definition for those who call themselves the Jackals. It is like a page taken out of today’s moral scene in the once great United States of America. To wit:
“The Jackals are no more than a handful of scarred and tattooed reprobates, scraping out a living by preying on anything weaker than them.”
This definition can be transferred to the abortion industry with no offense done to the English language and certainly no excessive treatment done to whom it applies or belongs.
Mike Godwin helped to coin the term known as the ‘Godwin’s Law’ in 2010, stated simply, it is that any discussion about something controversial will eventually, if given enough time, end up being compared to something Hitler or the Nazi’s have done. FULL POST

This writer would make the Donald my last choice in a field of sixteen candidates from the GOP primary, but if he is the last man standing after the primaries he would be my first choice for president.
The press tried to get Trump to retract remarks he made to no avail.
Undaunted the mainstream media next accused him of rape – the ex-wife said it wasn’t so.
Running low on ammo the MSM pulled out the old “birth certificate” controversy.
My bias is obviously non-democrat for president, which uniquely qualifies me to write on the Donald’s view that President Obama is not eligible to hold the office of POTUS because of a completely fake birth certificate.
With Sheriff Arpaio holding off on his “universe shattering” information on the birth certificate due to legal hassles, we will all have to settle in for nothing at all being done on the “birther” front until Obama signs out of the oval office or someone finds a way to circumvent the legal fortress of concealment that shrouds his records and background info.
I stand on the side of “I don’t know” concerning the birth certificate but I join with those who believe that after so many lies being spawned by this administration that the odds that the Donald is right - are in his favor. FULL POST

After a long reign ,as the auto capital of the world, the beleaguered city of Detroit was last seen (2012) asking President Obama to bail them out since over 75 percent of them pulled the levers to get him re-elected to office. Now the city has become the host of Satan’s statue complete with two adoring, admiring and worshipping children as part of the display.
On July 25, 2015 the city plunged to a new low as city leaders decided to allow the unveiling of the one ton statue of Satan (Baphomet) to be unveiled by the “Satanic Temple” after being rejected by the State of Oklahoma.
Following the unveiling a party was held in the warehouse district that after being rained out produced about 400 revelers, while some estimate the crowd was upwards of 700 people, who noisily partied under the banner of a lighted inverted cross. FULL POST

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21: 25-26)
This verse, taken from the gospel of Luke, has nothing to do with a last day’s wave of heart attacks, but rather it is a prophetic picture of the collective fainting of the hearts of men at the sudden, deep and wholly unexpected changes that are rolling into human history.
This week America is reeling from the videos in which officials from Planned Parenthood are negotiating the going price for the organs of unborn babies. We are witnessing something far more sinister than the ancient pagan world’s excursion into the offering of children to be burned in the fires of the idol known as Molech.
Today’s version of the “fires of Molech” is more sadistic and wicked than the ancients could have imagined, because it is now done under the cover of “law.” One man out of a band of nine cast the deciding vote for Roe v. Wade in 1973 and since then the waves of unborn children have met their doom to the grand figure of 55 million and counting. This is the “law”? If Molech were actually a real and living deity – he would be delighted. FULL POST

While Snopes says “undetermined” when queried about the recent video that caught Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood nonchalantly describing how they crush babies carefully on top and bottom so as to preserve the harvestable organs for sale; the same so called fact checking website was quick to determine that Isis terrorists were not crushing babies.
Isis 1 – America 0
Fact Check, Snopes and Right Wing Watch are vigilant to keep watch over every jot and tittle of the internet and media while they seem to stumble over the obvious. We can only wonder if while flying like ravening vultures over the carcasses’ of America’s worst behaviors they have not discovered some way to determine if journalists have two different colored socks on as the muse over their keyboards.
It is not hard to see that if we check the facts on FactCheck, watch Right Wing Watch for extreme left wing hype and spend a little time snooping around Snopes we will see heaps of bias copiously embellished and garnished with conclusions that need to be taken with a grain of salt and in some instances dismissed completely.
