France’s Socialist Macron to Build Traditional American for French?

MACRON THE META?

by Steven Hayward at PowerLine:

“I’ve been highly suspicious of Emmanuel Macron, France’s youngish, posterboy president. First of all, he’s French. Second, his “beyondist” positioning between or above the existing French parties—rotten as they are—seems dubious.

And while not abandoning these or other suspicions, his interview published today in the German magazine Der Spiegel makes for some very interesting reading. One comment in particular jumps out:

I am a strong believer that modern political life must rediscover a sense for symbolism. We need to develop a kind of political heroism. I don’t mean that I want to play the hero. But we need to be amenable once again to creating grand narratives. If you like, post-modernism was the worst thing that could have happened to our democracyThe idea that you have to deconstruct and destroy all grand narratives is not a good one. Since then, trust has evaporated in everything and everyone. I am sometimes surprised that it is the media that are the first ones to exhibit a lack of trust in grand narratives. They believe that destroying something is part of their journalistic purpose because something grand must inevitably contain an element of evil. Critique is necessary, but where does this hate for the so-called grand narrative come from? . . . Why can’t there be such a thing as democratic heroism? Perhaps exactly that is our task: rediscovering something like that together for the 21st century.

There may be more to this guy than I thought. Reading through the whole thing, which reveals especially his dislike of the media (always a good sign), makes me think he’s much preferable to Merkel for the leadership of the continent. And this little piece of the interview is curious on just this point:

DER SPIEGEL: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told us in an interview that he has learned a lot from Angela Merkel. Is the same true for you?

Macron: I speak often with Madame Merkel. We talk at least once or twice a week. We send messages to each other regularly and have a lot of joint meetings. I have great respect for her, even if we have a lot of differences.

Viva la difference!

Finally, perhaps we can add Elizabeth Warren to the list of people Macron doesn’t admire, at least by implication from the back and forth in this section:

DER SPIEGEL: The French left views you as an unbending neoliberal who protects his own caste.

Macron: What does one have to do today to reconcile France? Distribute public money – that’s what some expect, especially the radical left. They think that you help people by handing them money. But that is a fallacy because it is not me distributing the money, but rather future generations. So, it is my duty to say: Something has to change. I say that very directly, in clear words so that nobody can misunderstand me. And I believe in our new initiative for continuing education and vocational training. For French people who are socially disadvantaged, this means real recognition and support.

DER SPIEGEL: But it is precisely those French who also can’t understand why you want to get rid of the wealth tax.

Macron: Why? Because the wealth tax doesn’t do anything for them. It doesn’t exist in Germany or elsewhere in Europe. So, we want to build up Europe and yet retain the wealth tax at the same time? And what is it that leads company founders to leave, which in turn results in the loss of those jobs? We aren’t protecting the people who most need it when those who can contribute to the country’s success emigrate. Contrary to what some claim, I am not doing this to help the rich. My predecessor taxed wealthy, successful people at a higher rate than ever before. And what happened? They left. And what came of it? Did unemployment drop? No.

DER SPIEGEL: You are aware of the power of symbols. And by eliminating the wealth tax, you took a symbolic step that has riled up the left against you.

Macron: I stand completely behind this decision. I am not from the political or banking elite. I am a child of the middle class far from Paris. And if someone had told me that success is bad or if they had placed hurdles in my path, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I want it to be possible for young people in our country to be successful – whether they want to find that success in the family, as an artist or by founding a company. I refuse to give into the sad reflex of French envy because this envy paralyzes our country. We cannot create jobs without company owners, the state cannot create jobs by decree.”

American Lloyd Marcus to Black Leftists: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

The Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast: The Great Black Deception

By Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:
..

“Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on the Word Network; the world’s largest black religious channel. This year’s theme was, “And Still I Rise”.

Folks, I thought, “Oh my gosh, these people have no shame.” This breakfast was all about exploiting black’s Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists’ anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square. Several of the all-Democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions. The truth is, quoting the Bible is as repulsive to Leftists as showing Dracula the cross.

I thought, does anyone in that hall know Obama led a leftist war on Christianity, making him the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history? Do y’all know the 2017 Women’s March and Trump resisters whom you’ve praised at this breakfast seek to continue the Leftists’ war on Christianity?

The CBC Prayer Breakfast had nothing to do with Jesus or spreading His Love. Quite the opposite. It was about spreading hate for police, strengthening the Trump resistance, and strengthening black’s bogus belief that they are victims in America. The breakfast was also about despicably instilling hate and fear to register new Democrat voters.

Oh, how I wish I could grab my fellow black Americans by their collar and slap them into reality. America is the greatest land of opportunity on this planet for all who choose to go for it. Forget the Democrat/Leftist victim nonsense and pursue your dreams.

My 89-year-old black dad was extremely active in the early civil rights movement. As a kid, I accompanied Dad to the 1963 March on Washington at which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his remarkable, “I Have a Dream” speech. The modern civil rights movement has abandoned the vision of unity articulated by Dr. King in his speech, “I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” Oh, how the civil rights movement has fallen.

Though opposed by his peers, Dr. King stood firm on the principle of nonviolent activism. Today, Democrats praise violent hate groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Obama honored Black Lives Matter at the White House. You have not heard a single word of criticism from the CBC against Black Lives Matter calling for the killing of cops and whites.

Dad pressured/shamed me and my four younger siblings into voting and joining the NAACP. Dad said, “A lot of folks suffered and died to give y’all the right to vote.”

As a young man in the 1970s, I joined the NAACP. Upon attending my first meeting, I thought, “What is wrong with these people?” It felt like I stepped back into 1950s. The vibe was depressing. I was surrounded by long-faced blacks singing, “We Shall Over Come.” I commented to Dad that the meeting felt like I walked through a time warp into days of black misery. Dad chuckled.

I was a young black man enjoying the fruits of Dad’s and his fellow civil rights activist’s labors. I attended the mostly white Maryland Institute College of Art on scholarships. I was the first black graphic designer employed at WJZ-TV, ABC affiliate in Baltimore. Life was good. But the folks at the NAACP meeting were sad, depressed and angry; acting as though black slavery was alive and well in America.

Watching the 2017 CBC Prayer Breakfast, I witnessed the same absurd lie that America is still a hellhole of racism for blacks. The “And Still I Rise” theme means blacks stand strong despite being persecuted daily in America.

All that hate promoted at the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast was insidiously shrouded in Christianity. As a Christian, I found the so-called “prayer breakfast” a sad, evil deception.

As a black American, in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I command Leftists to, “Let my people go!”

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!

Fascism the New Confessional State?

The new confessional state

Secularism is becoming a religion.  (article sent by Mark Waldeland)
. . . Now, while pretending not to privilege any systems of life and belief, the state tacitly favors what might be called practical atheism, and penalizes contrary views.  To be sure, no one in public life is criticized – yet – just for believing in God.  The point is not so much that there cannot be a God, but that no God is needed and no God can be known.
 

But woe unto him who thinks believing in God makes a difference.  One is not required to be an atheist.  One is only expected to impersonate one.  Especially in law and the universities.

This masks the fact that Something Else is being elevated to godhood.  Secularism is becoming a religion.  We are growing an inverted confessional state.

 …..

“There is neither good, not bad.  ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO!!

The above adage was first ingrained in me in the sixth grade by a forty year old German going on 90, a  Miss Mary Alice Koeneman the year World War II finally came to and end.

(GOOD, she noted more than once in her teachings,  was  one “O” added to GOD!  It should NEVER be forgotten!  )

GOD BLESS KEVIN JACKSON AND DONALD TRUMP!

FASCISM INVADES AMERICA’S NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE VIA THE KAEPERNICK METHOD

Socialism’s black  President,  Barack Hussein Obama,  was the most racist American President since Democrat Woodrow Wilson.

America is now enjoying the result of his CORRUPT  antiAmerican administration, including the “Kaepernick Method”,  to expand its current Communist Revolution, the one now exercised and led  by the Charles Schumer-Nancy Pelosi Leftist Democrat Party, the New York Times, Washington Post, PBS, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, MOST OF FOX NEWS and MUCH OF FOX BUSINESS…… and bred by  nearly every contemporary American university from coast to coast.

The American Democrat Party has encased the American Black Citizen and Family in its political and economic cages without pause since before the  WAR BETWEEN THE STATES, 1861 – 1865.   Barack Hussein Obama’s biography has never been allowed to become public.   Leftists would sell the idea as WHITE RACISM at the New York Times, PBC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, MOST OF FOX NEWS AND MUCH OF FOX BUSINESS.

THE OBAMA PARTY began using the Kaepernick Method as propaganda  about a year ago.  Obama’s BLACKS AND FRIENDS of all colors, sexes, shapes and sizes, apparently even the many skilled   who are paid millions  to play professional football for today’s American public entertainment, have been cowed to advertise Communist programmed propaganda against  the most free, the most tolerant, democratic nation ever devised by mankind.  “Be ugly where ever and when ever possible”…is the Obama racist antiAmerican strategy…..from blocking roads, beating up conservative students and speakers at university ,  reporting untruths on television news (including Fox’s magnate international  business folks who hate the American in  President Donald J. Trump….and be ugly especially on Sundays, when once upon a time, even when I was young,  nearly every American spent time for GOD AND FAMILY.

That yesterday’s Sunday  is about dead.   Big Business’ Professional Football has become  today’s American  ‘god’ of  life, whose worship of body overwhelms worship for mind, being,  and TRUTH.  This god worship has spread to Monday’s and Thursdays as well, when in season.   Leftists who run the country’s news,  prefer to  perform the “Kaepernick Method” for their racist  propaganda on holy days.

Our American President Donald Trump recently announced his American unhappiness with this leftist, black racist, “Kaepernick Method” disorder.  “Keep politics out of America’s sports world!” he responded, hoping the professional football folks might wake their Kaepernicks up.

Yesterday’s football Sunday became very black indeed.   Some Kaepernick footballers sat on their fannies while their American National Anthem was heard….Others disappeared from public view.  In Chicago where the Pittsburgh Steelers failed to play well yesterday , only one Steeler   broke team racism by  not only respecting the flag, but, as if in solo, sang the National Anthem remarkable emotionally with the fans.  I believe he had an Italian name.

My son and I have had Viking season tickets for twenty years.  I did not go to the home game yesterday.  I refused to watch the game on television yesterday.   I worked in my gardened grounds instead, very happily….And I was happy the Vikings had won.    Until yesterday, I used to be a devoted fan of the New England Patriots despite their political left wing miasma geographically.   Its owner, a good American,  was mouthy critical of President Trump’s very American view about separating this foul Obamaling era marriage of leftist politics with American sports….. marriages Communists forever perform when Communists are on the march.

I’ve been in Obamaland’s one party dictatorship  socialist dream, the Soviet Union twice, in 1966 and again in 1990 when its national imprisonment began to shake.  I spoke Russian fluently then….what a blessing!   But the traditional American family, especially in today’s  Black American community, the one with a responsible Godfearing mother and  father with children  has pretty much disappeared since then……along with the knowledge and spirit so desperately needed in a civilized society.

I love our President Donald….He is full blooded American profoundly concerned about its today’s diseases….including  the “Kaepernick” disorder and holds the most important office in the country to do something about it.  But, HE ALONE CANNOT RID AMERICA OF THIS POLITICAL-RACIST  DISEASE WITHOUT   SHEEP, THAT FLOCK of HUMANITY, NEARLY ALWAYS MALES,  WHO ARE PROGRAMMED BY NATURE’S GOD TO SEEK TRUTH IN ORDER  TO KNOW AND EXPOSE  THOSE TRUTHS ABOUT AMERICA’S PAST AND PRESENT, AND  THE COST OF LIFE AND POSSESSION THIS COUNTRY HAS ALREADY SPENT IN ITS JUDEOCHRISTIAN ATTEMPTS TO FREE ALL AMERICANS FROM ALL SLAVERIES!

These males do exist today…..and so many are blacker than I am in  color.    I have been aware of Kevin Jackson for years and used to carry his commentary at this venue.   There’s David Webb and others found at Fox.   Thomas Sowell was a public intellectual Saint for years, but rarely read.

Kevin appeared this morning at Fox Business, as I was watching.  I am not surprised that he sees what I see in  Our Donald.   Fox Business is often less Foxy Left than Fox News, the ‘fair and balanced’ sales sold  by New York and/or Washington DC people, the ones still in shock that Our Donald gathered 306 Electoral College votes last November.

Kevin was surrounded by photo the standard Fox Business Neil Cavuto types…an antiTrumpee business Charlie who further despised Our Donald for opposing ‘freedom’ of rebellious political speech by the football Marxist revolutionaries pre-game time, a Sabrina, a gal of typical ditsy feminist utterance  on the matter of blacks and friends expressing themselves politically before they earn their keep on the football field……and staid, programmed business Fox guy, Cavuto who has some ‘business’  axe to grind regarding Our Donald.

Until Our Donald became President last January, Fox News was a wonderful center in introducing bright, articulate, intelligent, honest Americans of blackish tint all of whom made me very, very proud to be an American in this our God’s year, 2017.

Follow them folks.   They are vital in our All-American efforts to make America Great Again!!

(Correction:   Memory erred regarding the family name of the courageous Steeler American patriot mentioned above.   His family name was of a Romance language other than Italian…..He, Alejandro Villanueva,  has more of a Hispanic family name.)
