Washington Post’s Frederica Wilson’s Ditsy, Loony-Lefty World

I wonder if the Obama fascist left’s Washington Post editorial staff pays Florida’s Frederica Wilson  to be ditsy and loony in order to advance their Stalinist agendas.   I know they love scatterbrained Maxine Waters “the ancient”  from California.   She is nastier and  has a bigger mouth and spews less humor  against Truth when featured on CNN.

And then there is  Representative Hank Johnson  from Florida who in legislative conference (televised) was either drunk or entered second childhood early by worrying for sake of the republic  about the island of Guam sinking if too many  American troops were to set up shop on that small island.

This is a black racist bunch of the Democrat Party paid to keep America’s urban colored dependent upon government  handouts to maintain the Party’s control of their votes.  The Party can’t win national elections without their urban slaves’ and servants’ votes.

JudeoChristian values have become the enemy of the American Left.   Lying, distorting, contriving are all  essential for Schumer’s leftist Democrats and their CNNs to secure  final control of our government.   That Party is  already quite Leninist in its religious and political  actions  established  to do so without competition.    Fake news is its political book of worship.

Federica Wilson is an old timer selling her ditsyness, that is fake news filled with lies, assault, charm and a smile.

JOHN KELLY OWES THE CONGRESSWOMAN AN APOLOGY

(by the Washington Post’s fascistic editorial staff, the congresswoman being the reliably ditsy, Fredericka Wilson from Florida:)

“WHITE HOUSE Chief of Staff John F. Kelly owes Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.) an apology. That is the only conclusion that can be drawn after watching a video of the representative’s remarks at the dedication of an FBI building in Miramar, Fla., in 2015.

Mr. Kelly took to the lectern in the White House briefing room Thursday to defend President Trump’s handling of a condolence call to a widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger and to attack Ms. Wilson as selfish and politically motivated for her criticism. To bolster that characterization, he offered up his remembrance of the dedication of the FBI building in memory of two FBI agents who had been killed in the line of duty. He claimed Ms. Wilson used the occasion to take unseemly credit for securing federal funding for the building. “We were stunned,” he said, “stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned.”….)  Please continue reading below:

Alan Dershowitz, 2017

I am sure Alan Dershowitz is in his 80s.  I have had to put up with his obnoxious loudmouth salesmanship and temper selling  fascistic leftism since my 30s….He pretended to be a Democrat “Liberal” when dictating at the so-called American Civil Liberties Union, which I confess I used to donate to  during my “university” youth learning days about Communism practiced home and abroad.  Eventually,  I earned a graduate degree in Soviet Studies and had learned Russian and USSR’s horrible Communism.

I traveled to the Soviet Union on a National Defense Education Act in 1966 when that nation was still a first class police state, and in 1990  as an interpreter for a local Twin City Christian group which had raised nearly  a million dollars to aid victims of the atomic disaster at Chernobyl not far from Kiev in the Ukraine when the nooses around the citizens’ necks were beginning to loosen up and even disappear…..yet nothing had yet collapsed for fifty or more tanks were neatly and openly gathered only a mile from my hotel in Kiev.

That hotel had just been built and opened…..In unfree USSR such hotels were not scheduling local customers, only foreigners who could return home to advertise how modern the Soviet Union had become.   My room was on the eleventh floor (of maybe 15 floors) and was ‘modernly’ reached by a single  four passenger elevator!

On my fourth day in Kiev, the elevator died and remained dead for the rest of my two week visit there.

On about my sixth day   one early morning while shaving at the sink in my room, I hear a horde of whistles, blown in cadence outside through my permanently closed window eleven floors above the street …..the kind American high school sports coaches   wear around their necks and blow to get attention.

Life in this  successful dictatorship was quite programmed for everyone.   One did not chat much  outdoors.  If a chat occurred it was very, very quiet whether shopping, walking through a park or any place else.    This noise was something else!

I knew it immediately.   With shaving lotion still on my face, I ran down all eleven floors of stairs, for the whistles were now being blown in cadence.   There had to be thousands of whistles.  Something had to be happening in a nation devoted to silence.   I had to know and see what was going on!

Some kind of a revolt had arrived.   Thousands upon thousands of people, mostly males, were shoulder to shoulder, twenty and more abreast marching from my right to left clogging more than one street, each with a whistle blown in rhythm.   The sidewalks were jammed with people watching the spectacle as surprised as I was.  Some observers  joined in the marshal  walk where space permitted.  No one I talked to knew what was going on  any more than I did except they noted nothing official was being celebrated.

I found a street lamp I could climb up on to be secure and take pictures at a good angle with my camera…..after others were doing so just to watch sans camera.

I would have been arrested in 1966 for doing so….without a doubt.  Some poor college kid from Arkansas had taken an ashtray from a Soviet hotel that summer for a souvenir to take home.   He was arrested, roughed up a bit and sent to jail for a year…..to send a message to all in a Soviet Union and its visitors.

Before noon, I learned the thousands of whistlers had marched to the Communist government headquarters in Kiev and surrounded it.   I did not know Ukrainian the language,  although Ukrainians had to know Russian.    I wore Soviet clothes.  I bought them the first day in the USSR….black baggy pants, white baggy shirt was all I needed to blend in.  I wanted to control to whom I spoke.   The secret police were everywhere during my first visit in 1966.  No one spoke much in public then.

From then on,  evening rain or no rain, it was early October, every evening THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, thousands of Ukrainians gathered before dusk and began their ‘chants’ about horrors in their Soviet  past….each, a wife, a brother, a son, a friend in a ritual,  thrust an arm to the sky holding a picture, two or three, one at a time  naming their family or friend  victims of Soviet murder who disappeared never again to be seen by family and friends….many announcing the date and hour, or the circumstance and location of their last day of known life.   I stood in that park area every night the rest of the week  until three o’clock AM,  holding back tears in contrast to the  hard faces and cold anger of those   telling their story in paragraph time to the silent others waiting their turn to share their woe.

I am sure Alan Dershowitz didn’t speak Russian then ….nor did he visit the USSR as I did, yet he seemed to be very arrogant selling Soviet life for America in those days..

….those times when America was free, JudeoChristian, tolerant, and facing its democratic and religious responsibilities to put and end to the Democratic Party’s Southern racial segregation and begin its JudeoChristian duties to bring Negro and white America united together as families,  brothers and sisters.

Today’s enemy of freedom in America is Alan Dershowitz’s sculptured sexist, racist, socialist Democrat Party, the one financed by famous Communist, George Soros.

And yet, may God Bless Alan Dershowitz for discovering the goodness and greatness in Our Donald despite the builder’s  New York eccentricities.  Alan even speaks like an American dedicated to truth and freedom these days.  Mr. Dershowitz lawyers up with the professional NFL football war against America below.  Please read on:

Will America’s “Democrat-Marxist” Tiger Sharks Tear the Nation Apart with Their Leftist Lies at School?

The Left’s Sirens Are Already Hinting Our Culture Wars Will End In Another Civil War

..
“The radicalization of the Democratic Party is transforming everything that happens in America into another battle in our unending culture war.

By John Daniel Davidson at realclearpolitics: John Daniel Davidson

Is there anything left in American public life that isn’t an occasion for political rancor and division? NFL games are now nothing more than crude pieces of political theater. On Sunday even Vice President Mike Pence got in on the act, showing up to a Colts-49ers game then leaving after a few players knelt during the national anthem. Next day was Columbus Day, which the cities of Los Angeles and Austin decided this year to replace with “Indigenous Peoples’ Day,” because Christopher Columbus is apparently the new Robert E. Lee. And it’s only Tuesday.

It should be obvious by now that our culture wars will henceforth be constant and unending; the next battle could be triggered by almost anything. Whether it’s the reactions (or non-reactions) of Hollywood celebrities to the unsurprising news of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misdeeds or the outraged calls for the repeal of the Second Amendment the instant news broke of the Las Vegas massacre, very little can happen in America now without it being an occasion for an appeal to one’s own political tribe. No matter how tawdry or horrifying the news, there is vanishingly little room for solidarity because there is no appetite for it. Not even late-night comedy shows with their shrinking audiences can resist the urge to devolve into partisan political rants.

For all his eagerness to wage the culture wars in his improvised, bombastic style, this didn’t begin with Donald Trump. It didn’t begin with Barack Obama, either, but a recent studyby Pew Research Center found that divisions between Republicans and Democrats on fundamental political values reached record levels during the Obama administration. You don’t need a Pew survey to tell you that, of course, but the data helps illuminate an otherwise vague feeling that American society is coming apart at the seams, and has been for years.

Right and Left Are Moving Farther Apart, And Fast

The Pew study measures responses to issues Pew has been asking about since 1994, things like welfare, race, and immigration. On almost every count, the gaps between Republicans and Democrats held more or less steady up until around 2010, when they began to widen. Today, “Republicans and Democrats are now further apart ideologically than at any point in more than two decades,” with the median Republican more conservative than 97 percent of Democrats and the median Democrat more liberal than 95 percent of Republicans. Here’s what that looks like in a chart:

Pick your issue. On immigration, 84 percent of Democrats say immigrants strengthen the country, while only 42 percent of Republicans say the same. Ten years ago, those percentages were nearly identical. On environmental regulation, 77 percent of Democrats say more regulation is worth the cost, compared to just 36 percent of Republicans. A decade ago, that spread was 67 and 58 percent, respectively. On whether Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence, 65 percent of Republicans say it does while 69 percent of Democrats say it doesn’t. When Pew first asked that question in 2002, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, the partisan gap was just 11 points.

Here’s the other notable thing about Pew’s findings. Among the ten questions about political values that Pew has asked since 1994, the partisan gap is much larger than divisions based on demographic differences like age, race, and education. For example, the average partisan gap has increased from 15 to 36 points, whereas 20 years ago the average partisan differences on these issues were “only somewhat wider than differences by religious attendance or educational attainment and about as wide as the differences between blacks and whites (14 points, on average). Today, the party divide is much wider than any of these demographic differences.”

The Pew survey is a rich trove of fascinating survey data, but it mostly confirms what we can all see for ourselves: Americans are sorting themselves into political tribes that have less and less in common. Partisanship has even crept into the online dating scene. Last month the dating website OkCupid announced a partnership with Planned Parenthood that allows users to attach a badge to their profile, the obvious purpose of which is to avoid accidentally going on a date with someone who doesn’t share one’s views on abortion.

Identity Politics Is Poisoning American Civic Life

That brings us to something else that might get lost in the Pew numbers: the median Democratic voter has radicalized much faster than the median Republican voter, and most of this radicalization happened while a Democratic president was in office. That counterintuitive trend points to a larger problem with how the Left in particular understands the American project and our prospects for living together in peace and prosperity. Although it’s true that Republicans have moved further to the right as Democrats have moved further to the left, it’s the leftward slide that should worry us.

For all their shortcomings, conservatives at least have a limiting principle for politics. Most of them believe, for example, in the principles enshrined in the Constitution and maintain that no matter how bad things are, the Bill of Rights is a necessary bulwark, sometimes the only bulwark, against tyranny and violence. In contrast, here’s Timothy Egan of The New York Times arguing unabashedly for the repeal of the Second and Fifth Amendments.

The rapid radicalization of Democrats along these lines follows a ruthless logic about the entire premise of the American constitutional order. If you believe, as progressives increasingly do, that America was founded under false pretenses and built on racial oppression, then why bother conserving it? And why bother trying to compromise with those on the other side, especially if they reject progressives’ unifying theory that America is forever cursed by its original sin of slavery, which nothing can expiate?

Before you scoff, understand that this view of race and America is increasingly mainstream on the American Left. To read someone like Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose recent article in The Atlantic is a manifesto of racial identity politics that argues Trump’s presidency is based on white supremacy, is to realize that progressive elites no longer believe they can share a republic with conservatives, or really anyone with whom they disagree.

Coates has attained near god-like status among progressives with his oracular writings on race and politics, which take for granted the immutability of race and racial animus. So it’s deeply disturbing when he writes, as he does in a new collection of essays, that “should white supremacy fall, the means by which that happens might be unthinkable to those of us bound by present realities and politics.”

What does Coates mean by that? It isn’t hard to guess, and lately Coates isn’t trying too hard to disguise it. In a recent interview with Ezra Klein of Vox, Coates expanded on this idea. Writes Klein:

When he tries to describe the events that would erase America’s wealth gap, that would see the end of white supremacy, his thoughts flicker to the French Revolution, to the executions and the terror. ‘It’s very easy for me to see myself being contemporary with processes that might make for an equal world, more equality, and maybe the complete abolition of race as a construct, and being horrified by the process, maybe even attacking the process. I think these things don’t tend to happen peacefully.’

This is the circuitous, stumbling language of man who knows precisely what he wants to say but isn’t sure if he should come right out and say it. Coates isn’t alone in feinting toward violence as a means—perhaps the only means, if Coates is to be taken at his word—of achieving social justice. On college campuses, progressive activists increasingly don’t even bother mincing words, they just forcibly silence anyone who disagrees with them, as a Black Lives Matter group did recently during an event featuring the American Civil Liberties Union at the College of William and Mary. (Ironically, the talk was supposed to be about students and the First Amendment.)

For a sincere progressive, almost everything that happened in the past is a crime against the present, and the only greatness America can attain is by repudiating its past and shaming—or silencing, if possible—all those who believe preserving our constitutional order is the best way for all of us to get along.

Seen in that light, the radicalization of Democrats is something qualitatively different, and much more dangerous, than the radicalization of Republicans. It means, among other things, that the culture war is now going to encompass everything, and that it will never end….”

Dictating Hate of President Trump from the Leftist Jewish Synagogue

From birth in 1934 to military service in 1956, I lived  in a modest  Christian urban  community more  Roman Catholic than Protestant, with a somewhat wealthier distinct Jewish minority of about ten percent.   All children in our school district attended the same public elementary school, K through eighth grade.

Jewish kids were very “clannish”, as the word was in those days.   They appeared very,  very competitive, energetic,  to achieve good grades, while the rest of us, with a few exceptions,  were quiet and polite.    They also attended a neighborhood Hebrew School two times a week after elementary school classes for a few years.

Throughout my lifetime about 70% of American Jews vote Democrat, the lefty variety over the past twenty years including a worship and advertising of  the  recent antiAmerican President, Barack Hussein Obama and candidate, Hillary Roddham Clinton.

How are their leftist rabbis handling Our Donald thus far in this newer world of American politics at home and abroad?   Please read on:

Gun Control, Civilization, and the TROUBLE WITH WOMEN

I was born in 1934.  I was born male, therefore,  born to be curious.  Nearly every mystery of life possible could stop my minute, my hour, my day.   I wanted to know what, who, and why, but not too swift on  practicing the how  beyond  my two major careers,  school teaching teens and teaching and practicing  landscape garden artistry.

I was born and taught at a time when learning knowledge was vital for country, me, a human  male, and my  future family,  to prepare me for adulthood.

God, family, society, culture, the neighborhood and  the nation depended upon me, when grown up,  to lead my family, my Church, our America to an ever better world.

Until the end of World War II almost all of my school and Sunday school teachers were old maids.  They were in command of their positions then, as not now.  I was profoundly dyslexic, a disorder not known then, which profoundly crippled my ability to read beyond a headline or paragraph.   Instead, unknown to all then,  I luckily commanded vision and memory well.   This confused my teachers.   Many a time they took me aside from second grade through fifth, the War years, placed their right handed fore finger three inches from my face to remind me, and explained:

“Glenn Ray…… THERE ARE TWO REASONS WHY YOU MUST LEARN KNOWLEDGE!!

1. LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL MAKE YOU CLOSER TO GOD, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL!   and, 2.  LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL HELP YOU MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WHEN YOU VOTE!”…..this, in public school, by the way, GOD BLESS THEM!

These reverent women, most in their fifties, were well prepared to teach knowledge,  for the culture was disciplined.    The dominant male culture then  wouldn’t allow disorder or unlearnedness.   Adult females were caring for family at home and in the neighborhoods.

Today’s hordes of unlearneds, instead, wrestle with their own  children without much knowledge of their own required in  today’s  culture, and  without reverence for learning.     In countless communities in America today,  there is no father around,  nor mothers at home to nurse and guide, and Churchless.

I eventually did learn that the human male animal is born a killer by Nature’s GOD.  When young,  I was told the ancient Greeks claimed:  “There is neither good nor bad……ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO”.   The human male  fought and sought Truth for centuries.  He, not she, has created the industry and knowings of today.

The human male is born to seek Truth regardless of its degree of discovery.  HE, NOT SHE,  is Nature’s  protector of his offspring, his flock, his tribe, his country.

The human female animal has delivered “the He’s” who have been able to build, defend, and destroy what has been developed for modern human life and death…..and “the She’s” who have continued to bear the species.

The human female animal is born ditsy, however.   Seeking knowledge is not at all her primary drive.  To “the She”  FEELINGS COUNT FIRST over TRUTH!   Safety also dominates Truth, at least in search.

Today, pharmaceuticals are absorbed in America like candy.   America’s  human animals are sold pills and thrills  are good for  health resulting in the rise of  all sorts of sexes, shapes and sizes of dependent people.   Big Business profits from conning its customers by selling health whether good or bad.

Today’s American adults  under age 50  have been made exceptionally uneducated in accumulating truth’s knowledge by  the leftwing educational  establishment from K through graduate school.   Every year a little knowledge becomes ever more dangerous.

Twenty million legal and illegal immigrants invading  from fascistic, corrupt, and poor nations, have settled  in  California over the past decade or so.   They  know nothing about Truth of  our American centuries of struggle to become and remain free of  leftist fascist tyrant rule until now.

Our  American urban black populations have been kept in Leftist Democrat Party stockades of collective ignorance for generations being bribed by the Democrat Party itself!

What does the above have to do with gun laws?    Only ditsies,  mostly  Democrats believe, and believe hysterically,  that its the gun, not people,  that kills and maims people.    Many Republicans also  vote for “however, whatever” is needed to win an election, just to stay in office.

Whatever happened to the Godfearing America of my childhood and youth, those years before the vulgars’ revolt of the late 1960s  and the beginning of the disappearance of American JudeoChristianity?

Skip the ditsy….What must a free America need to do to begin its  rise from its cultural  tar pits the  leftwing has caused now  over the past half century?  Will feminists ever overcome their ditsy disorders?   Will the American family ever be restored, led again by JudeoChristian principles, or is the evil of atheism here to stay?     Can laws stop the lawless?    Do read on below!

Don’t Forget the TRUTHS of Climate Change

The following is a  five minute rational lecture without leftist terror tales and political hysterics regarding our Earth’s warming climate…….Presented by RICHARD LINDZEN  at Prager University:
“Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities…but what do scientists say about climate change? Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world’s leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change…..”
Please view and study below,  Prager University’s  outstanding five minute lecture regarding  the Truths of  Earth’s “Climate Change” in contrast to our present world of gross ignorance and deceptive politics taught by  our fascistic  Leftist political  propagandists.  The Earth IS warming a bit.  It is the Sun, itself, not us Americans, which is today and will continue heating our atmosphere up until its our planet’s death  in a billion or two years from now.
Happy campfire to all of you lefties who plot your police control over our human beings “forever”  today and tomorrow.

Professional Football Rebel Low Lifes vs. the States

The glass house of the NFL

by Victor Davis Hanson   at Jewish World Review:

“The National Football League is a glass house that was cracking well before Donald Trump’s criticism of players who refuse to stand during the national anthem.

The NFL earned an estimated $14 billion last year. But 500-channel television, internet live streaming, video games and all sorts of other televised sports have combined to threaten the league’s monopoly on weekend entertainment — even before recent controversies.

It has become a fad for many players not to stand for the anthem. But it is also becoming a trend for irate fans not to watch the NFL at all.

Multimillionaire young players, mostly in their 20s, often cannot quite explain why they have become so furious at emblems of the country in which they are doing so well.

Their gripes at best seem episodic and are often without supporting data. Are they mad at supposedly inordinate police brutality toward black citizens, or racial disparity caused by bias, or the perceived vulgarity of President Donald Trump?

The result, fairly or not, is that a lot of viewers do not understand why so many young, rich players show such disrespect for their country — and, by extension, insult their far poorer fans, whose loyal support has helped pay their salaries.

ESPN talking heads and network TV analysts do not help. They often pose as social justice warriors, but they are ill-equipped to offer sermons to fans on their ethical shortcomings that have nothing to do with football…….Please read on:
