Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

The Resistance is active again. In between calling President Donald Trump a racist because feefees and filling social media with hashtags and talking points, they’re telling us to vote in the midterm elections. And with all the campaign literature clogging up our mailboxes, who knew there was an election coming up?

But this isn’t just any midterm election. This is the one that could mean the difference between saving our country and an existence that would make “The Handmaid’s Tale” look like a Norman Rockwell lithograph. The Resistance even adopted a slogan: Vote like your life depends on it because it does. Let’s see…breathing, food, shelter…nope, don’t see voting as a fundamental need.

What is it about Election 2018 that has the Left hyperventilating more than a claustrophobe trying to get out of a paper bag while breathing into a smaller bag to try to fight off a panic attack? Good thing we have a blogger who can shed some light into this. But since she’s out of town, they’re letting me take a crack at it.

Election 2018

What the Left thinks it means – the most important election in history, but only if Democrats win

What it really means – a repeat of past midterm elections, just with more Leftist freakouts

After not being able to impeach the President or even make him look even the slightest bit like the evil fascist warmonger they’ve tried to make him out to be, the Left has put a lot of focus on the midterm elections. In doing so, they have tried to keep spirits high by predicting a “blue wave” and avoided talking about party mistakes and candidate scandals. And to be fair, it’s not like the Democrats have a member of the Democratic National Committee who is accused of assaulting a woman, right?

Okay, scratch that.

The Left has put most of their electoral eggs in the 2018 midterm basket because they feel they have no other way to stop Trump. They’ve tried yelling at us, calling Trump supporters horrible names, attempting to assault and/or kill Republicans, and generally dismissing voters not like them as dumber than Forrest Gump on a five year binge on old school NyQuil. You know the kind I’m talking about. The NyQuil with enough alcohol in it to drop a rhino while clearing up its sinuses.

Anyway, the Left’s attempts to persuade people not already on their side to join up haven’t worked well. Maybe it’s, oh I don’t know, the fact you treat us like crap? Just thinking outside the ballot box here, kids. So, after over 2 years of taking the same approach to attracting potential voters, the Left has gone into overdrive to try to persuade people to vote for their candidates. And, in a clear sign they’ve learned from past mistakes, they’re doing the same thing they did for the past 2+ years…only louder.

The Left says they need to win the midterm elections to ensure Trump is kept in check and to try to reverse the horrible things he’s done, like…tax cuts that benefitted a vast majority of people? Well, they haven’t really ironed out all the details yet, but by Election Day, I’m sure they’ll have something…

The real reason I think the Left is obsessed with the midterm elections is because they’ve been out of power for a while, and they don’t like it. Remember how Democrats acted in 2007 after they took back the House from Republicans? They acted like they were going to be in power for a long time, and the election of Barack Obama in 2008 only fed into that idea. Well, apparently a long time only lasts 4 years in Leftist time because Republicans took back control of the House in 2011. Shortly after that, the Senate went Republican and left all the rules former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made to come back and haunt the Senate Democrats. What can I say, Mr. Reid? Mitch McConnell warned you.

Now with Donald Trump sitting in the White House and the prospect of conservative Supreme Court Justices looming on the horizon, the Left have a perfect storm of impotence on their hands. They’ve let power slip out of their hands and they’re willing to do anything to get it back, including actions they would have decried if Trump and the GOP had done them.

We’ve spent a lot of time in this blog entry on the Left, but the question remains: how important are the 2018 midterm elections? To political junkies on both sides of the political aisle, they’re pretty important. To average folks like you and me? Not so much. In the end, one group is trying to take jobs from another group because the first group says they can do the jobs better since the other group is a bunch of dunderheads with IQs somewhere in the neighborhood of toe jam. And the other group is trying to prevent the first group from taking power because they are doing the best they can while the first group is slightly smarter than bread mold. How convincing these arguments are depends on who listens to and believes them.

I may follow politics like I do professional football, but I don’t think any politician is going to have that much direct impact on our lives. In groups, yes, but individually, no. I look at it this way. Most of the time, these folks don’t bother to contact me when they’re about to vote on legislation, so I don’t bother to consult them when it’s time for me to vote. If they come around, I’ll listen to them and consider their viewpoints. Otherwise, I’m fine voting for whomever I feel will do the best job.

That’s why I’m voting for my dog, Chico.

Bomber Facts

When the story broke on the arrest of the alleged mass bomber and his name was given to the public. I did my own sleuthing into his background via the internet.

Various background sites all reported the same information. The alleged bomber lived in Florida, he was in his 50’s, and he was registered as a Democratic party voter.

Within hours of his arrest the news media and social media posts were all reporting that the alleged bomber was a registered Republican party voter and supporter of President Trump.

I returned to those background checking websites and refreshed the data. Sure enough all of them had been changed. If I didn’t see this with my own eyes I would call it a conspiracy theory. But this isn’t theory. This is fact.

Likewise on social media, the alleged bombers information was either altered or simply removed from view. This clearly shows the truth has been hidden and altered by the Left leaning social media owners. What was hidden? The alleged bombers anti-Trump views and that he was a Democratic Leftist supporter.

These two facts alone prove beyond all doubt that the mainstream and social media sites are firmly under the control of the Left. There is no true reporting of the facts and just the facts. There is only the Leftist approved propaganda stories.

Refugees

This is more like one of the weekly Leftist Lexicon posts by my esteemed guest author Thomas. We will be defining a few words/phrases here since the Left wants to take over the language. We must take out language back. Words have meaning.

There is a caravan of illegal aliens coming northward through Central America. Not only are these aliens from several different Central American countries, they also come from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. These people are well provisioned and their numbers are getting larger.

The Left wants people to believe that this invasion force are refugees fleeing from gang violence and economic hardship to get a better life in the United States. But this is where the Left has taken over the language. None of them are refugees.

A refugee is an internationally recognized legal status where the individual has proven that they are subject to persecution on the basis of race, religion, or political views in their country of origin.

Likewise, an asylum seeker is someone seeking to become a refugee. Very few, if any, of the illegal alien invasion force marching towards our southern border will qualify for refugee status.

This band of mostly able-bodied men of military fighting age are possibly fleeing devastating economic issues and extreme gang violence. But neither of these are grounds for refugee status. By leaving their homelands they have become criminals. And their crimes are legion.

For the most part these people are a lawless marauding invasion force. They have unlawfully exited their nations of origin. They have unlawfully entered multiple nations during this march against the sovereign territory of the United States of America.

When crossing borders they have assaulted the legal authority of invaded nation. Leaving bloodied officers of the law in the streets. They have used weapons such as bottles, knives, clubs, and even fists in these assaults.

They have no regard for life as they use the few women and children with them as human shields at the front of the caravan when illegally crossing the borders of sovereign nations.

Once through the border these marauding invaders have no regard for property as it’s destruction and theft is clearly evident by this lawless band.

We, as a nation, must first and foremost protect our citizens and our borders from this lawless marauding invasion force. And we must do so by any and every means available, including lethal force.

Personally I don’t want it to come to that but this band of lawless marauders does not have any regard for the rule of law. They use women and children as human shields, breakdown barriers and assault law enforcement officers. And I don’t think they will be any different by the time they reach the US border.

Citizenship

The 14th Amendment deals with a number of issues that arose following the end of slavery and the War between the States. It also dealt with a few loose ends from the founding of the United States that needed to be tidied up.

First it changes the census counting of all persons to being a full person. Previously slaves were counted as 1/3rd of a person during the census. And the census determines the number of representatives a State has in the House of Representatives.

Secondly it gave former slaves the right to vote, even though it took another Amendment to fully implement that change. This also took away representation for those who participated in rebellion against the United States or any other crimes.

The Amendment also denies public office or military rank to anyone who has participated in insurrection or rebellion or given aid or comfort to the enemies of the United States. Congress has the authority to remove this disability.

The 4th Section states that any debits or obligations that arose from insurrection or rebellion against the United States or from the emancipation was illegal and void.

These first few paragraphs all deal with Sections 2, 3, and 4 of the 14th Amendment. They are often forgotten so I have presented them here first.

Section 1 basically defines a citizen of the United States. The intent of our government in the aftermath of the War between the States and with the end of the frontier, declared that all people born or naturalized within the United States were citizens. This included former slaves and other indentured servants and the Indians as well.

But birth or naturalization alone is not enough to be a citizen of the United States. One must also be subject to the jurisdiction of the United States as well.

This Section also prohibits the States from enacting any laws that strip a citizen of the privileges of citizenship or deprive any citizen of life, liberty, or property without due process. Furthermore all citizens have equal protection under the law.

What was never intended by the 14th Amendment was for illegal aliens who unlawfully entered the United States to have children who become automatic citizens of the United States. Or even for foreign nationals to come to the United States by lawful means just to have a child born here to get citizenship.

These and similar actions are all unlawful and those children are not citizens then or now, unless they have been naturalized at some point . They are all illegal aliens and foreign nationals subject to deportation or other actions allowed by law.

Christians and Politics

There are Christian Denominations that believe voting and running for political office goes against God’s Will and His Word. While myself and others believe the opposite. Participating in elections and running for office is within His commandments and some are called to the duty of public office.

Throughout Holy Scripture are commandments and laws for the Children of God to follow. Jesus gives us His two greatest commandments in the gospels of Matthew 22:36-38, Mark 12:29-31, and Luke 10:27. In these verses the Lord commands us to first Love God and secondly to Love our neighbors as ourselves.

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

That second commandment shows us that it is a mistake to completely isolate ourselves from politics. For if we do not vote or run for office we carelessly leave our neighbors and future generations in the hands of the immoral and wicked. If you love your neighbor as God commands, you must protect his inalienable rights and freedoms.

Everywhere in the Bible, the Old Testament and the New, God tasks us believers to care for the poor, the oppressed, the defenseless, the widows, and the orphans. With these issues alone the very need for Christians to be involved in politics is obvious.

It is also evident that we as Christians are the most ideally suited people for this duty. Scripture points out in Proverbs 29:7 that the righteous care about the poor and justice while the wicked are selfish and do not. And in Proverbs 28:5 we know that those who seek the Lord understand what is right while evildoers do not seek what is right.

7 The righteous care about justice for the poor,
but the wicked have no such concern.

5 Evildoers do not understand what is right,
but those who seek the Lord understand it fully.

It is true that Jesus was not involved with politics in His time. But it wasn’t possible as Rome had ceased to be a republic at least a generation before His birth in this world. And Rome certainly wasn’t a democracy of any king. Our form of political involvement that we have today simply didn’t exist then.

In the United States we Christians are privileged to live in a Constitutional Republic. We do have political influence to make a difference for ourselves, our neighbors, and to show our Love of God.

The inerrant Word of God, the Holy Bible, has many stories of His Children being called into political service and influence so they could love their neighbor and Glorify God. These include Joseph, Daniel, and Esther in the Old Testament. Within the New Testament the political influence of Paul’s Roman Citizenship plays a major role in spreading the gospel across the Roman world.

There is an important part here that cannot be overlooked. Because we live in a Constitutional Republic we share political authority with nonbelievers. Many of these have no moral boundaries and want to silence the Word of God or make it in their image. Without Christians being actively involved with voting or running for office we show we do not truly love our neighbors as ourselves. For we leave their fate and the fate of future generations to the wicked and immoral.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Leftists have been complaining about stolen elections since they started losing to candidates they felt had no chance of winning. After all, they had only the best candidates who were smarter and better suited to leadership, right? Who could forget the campaign brilliance of 3 time Presidential loser Al Gore and 2 time Presidential loser Hillary Clinton?

One of the favorite terms tossed about since President Donald Trump took office is Republicans cheat through a process called gerrymandering. I’m not exactly sure how to mander Gerry, but it’s worth taking a look at for no other reason than it gives me something to write about.

gerrymandering

What the Left thinks it means – a form of cheating done by Republicans to ensure they retain political power at the expense of our democracy

What it really means – a form of legalized cheating done by both major parties to ensure they retain political power at the expense of logic

In short, gerrymandering is when political parties in power redraw Congressional districts after they get census results. In recent years, this means Republicans have more of a hand in the district redrawing process than they have in past years. And, as a result, districts seem to be drawn by drunk spiders rather than reasonable methods like…oh, I don’t know…splitting up districts geographically without considering political leanings. Yeah, I know I’m a bit of an oddball when it comes to this, but hey, it’s my lot in life.

This is not to say Democrats don’t do and haven’t done the same in the past when they’ve held power. In fact, they do, and quite often with the same logic applied to letting Mel Gibson give a speech at a bar mitzvah. Take the House members of the Congressional Black Caucus, for example. Back in the 1990s, the Left decided only blacks could represent blacks, so they drew up Congressional districts that would allow just that. And, boy, it worked well. It not only gave us the psychotic brilliance of former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, but it gave us plenty of other dim bulbs who wouldn’t be getting into Office Depot let alone political office.

Of course, the Left doesn’t consider this to be a problem because…reasons. And in a rare display of bipartisanship, the Right agrees.

I, however, see a problem with gerrymandering regardless of who does it. First, it makes zero sense from a logical sense. I know, expecting politics to be logical is like expecting Michael Avanetti to stop chasing ambulances, but it doesn’t negate the point. When your Congressional district changes borders from block to block depending on what side of the sidewalk you live before expanding to include entire neighborhoods, it’s hard to argue the districts make sense.

Second, it shows a lack of political courage. If you have to redraw districts to ensure an outcome, you are rigging the results barring a political upheaval that would make the French Revolution look like a Buddhist picnic. What’s wrong with advancing a better argument in your favor? Why do we need racially-minded redistricting if all people are supposed to be equals under the law? It’s nothing short of cowardice to be afraid to face opposing ideas.

The third, and the most pressing one to me, is the fact gerrymandering is ultimately pointless. As we’ve seen with the Congressional Black Caucus, it’s easy to create districts that fit a specific political and/or social goal. That creates a natural pushback that gives politicians a vested interest in breaking up those districts when they can. If that pushback leads to upheaval, it creates a desire for the other party to return to or even expand their original district borders.

Mutually Assured District Destruction at its finest, kids.

What gets me is how the Left takes the concept of gerrymandering and completely misuses it. Although it can be argued it has had an impact on previous elections, it has nothing to do with Senate and Presidential elections. Yet, whenever Leftists talk about what they see as political shenanigans by Republicans, they throw around gerrymandering like a gangsta rapper throws around the word “ho.”

And remember, kids, Leftists are the smart ones.

Right now, gerrymandering is a problem made worse by both major parties trying to jockey for any power they can muster, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Typically I’m not a fan of adding laws to the books, but in this case I’m willing to make an exception. Call it the Congressional District Sanity Act. Under my law, gerrymandering for political, racial, or other reasons would be outlawed, and Congressional districts would all be redrawn to ensure representation actually resembles the population in the districts. I’m looking at you, Maxine Waters, whose actual home in her district bears little resemblance to the homes in the majority of her district. And I’m willing to bet many of her constituents wouldn’t be welcome at Auntie Maxie’s house. Don’t want to associate with the hoi paloi, after all!

Gerrymandering shouldn’t even be on the table in politics today or the future. The fact both sides see nothing wrong with it as long as they’re doing it speaks volumes about how little they care about representing the people.

Mob Injustice

The Leftist Democratic party thugs in Antifa are doing exactly what former Secretary Hillary Clinton and Congresswoman Maxine Waters have told them to do. This is bullying, harassment, and inciting a riot. And this is illegal.

Not only should the assailants go to jail for their individual actions but so should the Democratic party leadership that encourages these actions. Inciting a riot is a crime and those responsible need to be held accountable. Congresswoman Maxine Waters and former Secretary Hillary Clinton need to be arrested, charged, and prosecuted for inciting a riot after each incident that takes place.

If this is not stopped it will only get worse. And someone will eventually be murdered by the angry Democratic party mobs.

157 years ago the Democratic party caused a war between the states. And it looks like they are on track to do it again.

Pre-Existing Conditions

Pre-existing conditions are not covered by insurance. And they shouldn’t be either.

Please tell me why an insurance company would take such a risk. It’s not good business at all. And insurance companies, like all businesses, seek to make a profit. If one is always paying out, the profit goes away and the business goes out of business.

Are Leftists up in arms about other kinds of insurance no covering pre-existing conditions. We never hear of any Leftists demanding the coverage of a pre-existing condition on a home or vehicle.

“Hello All State? Yes I would like to get insurance on my vehicle. Oh I’ve had a wreck so it is totaled and needs lots of repairs. So it has a pre-existing condition. You can over that right?”

All State would not cover that vehicle with an insurance policy.

“Hello State Farm? Yes I would like to get homeowners insurance. Yes right now my house is burning so I will need to get it fixed once the fire is out or if the fire destroys it. Yes this is a pre-existing condition of being on fire.”

Here again State Farm would not cover this pre-existing condition. No insurance company would and no insurance company should be forced to do so either. It would cause the company to go bankrupted and out of business. Unless of course that is the goal.

Although these examples were on property the same applies to health conditions. With a pre-existing condition, there is always a payout. That is loss revenue and loss profits. That over time will lead to an insurance company closing its doors forever.

Insurance is to cover something that might happen, that one hopes never does. A payment to cover costs in the event of catastrophe. It is a risk that insurance companies take. They are betting that no event ever happens. But if one has to insure something that has already happened. Then the cost is either going to be very high to cover the outgoing costs. Or it will not be insured.

Additionally, in these debates the terms of health care and health insurance are used interchangeably. They are not the same thing at all. Everyone has access to health care. It is not a right however nor is health insurance.

I have already written on the topic of reform in our health care industry and health insurance industry. If you are interested in these please look up the previous posts on this subject and check the issues section menu as well. Reform in both are needed.

And there needs to be something to assist those with pre-existing conditions as well. But it’s not health insurance since that implies something that hasn’t already happened. What it is, I don’t know, but it should be available.

The Bombs and Motive

The pipe bombs are no the work of any conservative, tea party, Republican, or right wing group or individual. The people targeted are meaningless in the midterm elections. None of them are on the political radar. They are not a threat to the coming Red Wave.

Additionally the packages all have the hallmarks of someone wanting the bombs to be discovered before any harm is done. Excessive taping use on the package. Excessive postage for the weight of the package.

These and other signs clearly show that the sender(s) want the packages to be discovered. Or they are complete idiots with the amateur knowledge of someone with a middle school education.

I am a very political active. And I don’t have the home addresses of any high level Republican, let alone Democratic party members and former presidents. No this is an inside job.

Nothing happens by chance or coincidences when it comes to the Clinton’s. And since they were “targeted” in this bombing attempt. It greatly increases the chances this is an inside job planned and ran by the Democratic Left to shift blame to the right and GOP.

The motive is simple, this is to attempt to change the narrative of the upcoming midterm elections. To jump start the failed Blue Wave and sweep the Democratic party into power. There is no motive for those on the right to send pipe bombs.

The Answers to the Tough Questions

This meme is going around Facebook and other Social Media sites so I thought I would say a few words about it.

The unhinged Left likes to parade this meme around in some lunatic idea that there is something wrong. Other than that they lost the 2016 election and just can’t accept it due to being afflicted with NPD.

We are going to examine each of these statements by themselves and see what we can do with them. Let’s begin.

“I never thought I would see a president call a woman #Horseface.”

My first thought on this is why is it hash tagged? Have any other insults made by the president been hash tagged? Did the Left hashtag any of the insults that the president made on the campaign trail against other Republicans? And are any of the insults made against foreign powers been hash tagged by the Left?

The answer to all of these is a no. Because it’s not the insults that bother the Left. It’s only when the president insults a Leftist do they become unhinged.

The very fact that these insults are being done are really nothing new in American politics or world politics. From antiquity to the present day insults have been hurled at opponents and those in opposition to ones position. This is nothing new. Nothing to see here. This is really a non issue.

“I never thought I would see a president conspire with a hostile foreign power.”

Oh what short memories the Left has when it comes to their own. They forget President Obama’s comment to Putin when he thought the mic was off and it wasn’t. They forget the horrid deals that Secretary Clinton made with the Russians as Secretary of State. And there are plenty of other presidential wanna-bees on the Left that have far reaching socialist and communist connections.

President Trump hasn’t conspired with hostile foreign powers. He has brought peace and stability to the Korean Peninsula. He is making sure that Russia knows that we mean business and are not playing around like the previous administration did. If that is “conspiring” please Mr. President do more of it. It makes the world a safer place for all Americans.

“I never thought I would see children in prison camps in America.”

Oh no! I guess someone hasn’t ever seen incarcerated juveniles. These children that are being talked about are criminals. They have crossed a border illegally. We have a serious border security issue in the United States. Our borders and laws are not being enforced the way they should be. So when a child or anyone else crosses the border in an illegal manner they should be imprisoned. Processed and deported back to their country of origin. This is the law in civilized nations and has been the rule in Western Civilization for over 6000 years. Illegal action has consequences.

“I never thought I would see so many Americans ok with all of this.”

Sane Americans are ok with all of this simply because most of it is the right thing to do. Enforcing our laws. Bringing about world peace and security are good things to do. Now the issue with the insults. We under normal circumstances that might be a bit much. But at this point in time we need a president who is a little rough cut to ensure everything gets done. Just like the Liberal FDR went into congress and insulted them to pass his Leftist policies in an attempt to get the US out of the Great Depression.
