9-08-2016: “Our Donald Is The Most Exciting, The Most American, The Most Successful Builder to Reach The White House”

The Article titled above was written two months before “Our Donald” was duly elected the 45th President of these United States that evening of November 8.  Its content is reprinted below!!!    Think of the Leftist evil created, perpetuated by President Barack Hussein Obama’s tenure promising to change our America forever……  the nation’s present FASCISTIC DEMOCRAT PARTY, its PRESS from coast to coast, its FBI, its SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES, its TELEVISION NEWS, its HOLLYWOOD ENTERTAINMENT, its FEMINIST FANATICS!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GODFEARING TRUTH?

“September 8, 2016:  At a week or two from my 82nd birthday, today’s beautiful Twin City weather has permitted me to return to my landscape gardening labors, a major love of my life.

I have come to love OUR DONALD TRUMP at the same level I have come to  respect OUR DENNIS PRAGER since I first discovered him on radio twelve years ago.  No two men have so reinvigorated my  hope for America’s civilized future, now under assault from vicious leftist political animals led by Barack Hussein Obama and Crooked Hillary.

I had an opportunity to tune in to Dennis’ second hour radio ‘lesson’ this Minnesota AM.

Dennis was defending his recent support for my candidate for the White House, Donald J. Trump.  The narrow of mind have been angry at  Our Dennis for his turn to Our Donald…..as I knew he would when Our Dennis cooled down from his purity heights of last winter.

I wrote the following article last February when Our Dennis was angrily and loudly blaspheming Our Donald, when emotion overcame Dennis’ interest in truth and logic.

“These are difficult times in our America.   Assaults on our traditional values based upon JudeoChristianity are under attack from all fronts, at home and abroad.

The last refuge for our  America, its goals, its duties, its values based upon our Biblical lessons from the  past, is our Republican Party today…..and, until recently,  preachers like our Dennis, as if lone wolves howling melodies from deep in our Minnesota forests, have kept  the  light of civilized  human life lit.

Dennis is Jewish, a conservative one, making him a very rare creature in this community  since his college years, as I remember from his preachings  when  I first met his speaking on radio in  October,  2004.

Raising this point is not intended to be a put down statement to anyone…..as today’s Media Matters’ atheistic Jews would pick up as a weapon to destroy me (and Donald Trump) if I (or he,) became  a noted conservative running for political office.

Dennis has become, and will continue to be,  part of my family in my continuing old age.   I respect him, but no one is perfect, and our Dennis has been very ‘unperfect’  for his war of hate against  Our Donald.

As I used to remind my senior high school students, “Whatever I say or write is a matter of MY opinion”.

Donald Trump seems to have  arrived not into Dennis’s  inquisitive brain, but onto Dennis’ nose….so close to his eye he can’t see things profoundly  Donald,  and therefore has no clue regarding who this, “Our” Donald is, where he really comes from, what he really thinks, what he really is driving at, what his goals are, but instead  sees nothing    good, absorbing only  countless Donald  faults…..and there are a lot of them which irritate even us, his  best allies.

Dennis’ sin is a human sin so common in us all.   Our tolerance for matters new in our life’s experience become  more firmly grounded in us as we age.   By Nature we aging  males  wonder more and more  about life’s  whispers of  wisdom and life’s  purpose beyond our  cemented  securities held tight by the   brick and mortar of experience.

For thirty five years I have known this Donald Trump through television and the press…who he was, what he seemed to be, what he did in life, and how he did it according to pages from the press and sites on television.  This Trump was a New Yorker to boot.

I wanted no part from him.   I was totally today’s  “Dennis Prager” regarding our Donald…. until this mid-to-late summer past when I began to realize this Trump is truly serious about competing  as a Republican to become America’s president in 2017.

The Republicans were offering a Jeb Bush, God forbid, the dull, awkward Republican one, the  brother of nice guy but also awkward functionary,  limited Republican, not very conservative USA president, GW;    Ted Cruz, a boring talkie-talkie functionary who had a great reputation as a debater;    the boy, nice guy, functionary Republican guy,  Senator Rubio, with a terrific family story to tell America, but jobless after his Senate stint was over;  and some  awkward, grumpy Republican guy governor from Ohio.  Boring!!!

And then there was chubby,  Obama-hugging prosecuting attorney,  New Jersey guy.

All functionaries…..nothing new or thrilling about that list…..SO I LOOKED UP OUR DONALD THROUGH THE INTERNET, just to see where he might fit,  fully prepared by prejudice to discover  countless reasons I should despise him as an American, as a Republican, as our 45th President of the United States.

To be brief I loved what I read…..(Despite noticing America might have her first lady in the White House who might  appear a bit bimboish,  my prejudice, folks).

I found out the Donald was very well liked by those who work for him, deal with him.  He  had children unspoiled who learned from their father to work for a living,  that he was a builder and even a successful tv celebrity , far from my tastes in  life, and that his first wife recently  wrote an article exceedingly  favorably about this guy as a human being.

Religiously….Our Donald claims he’s a Presbyterian.  He announced it so.    I’m guessing he doesn’t really know how screwball most Presbytries  are these days…atheists, Israel haters, leftists’ churches to go to practice feminism and points leftier.

By God, if he’s found God again, go to it, Donald!

Dear Dennis and other such anti-Trump RNC bigots….Donald Trump is and has never been a politician in his life!   He has not practiced  its habits, the smooth  or  the sleazy.

Dear Dennis an other such anti-Trump RNC  bigots…..  Donald Trump, a builder, a natural  gambler in business,  has had ups and downs in life…..many of them….and he bounces back a winner.

Today, our America needs a winner!!!!

No one can match him in personality  or in ways he can botch up a sentence, especially when he is roused.   And, above all…..Dennis,  Donald Trump is a practicing conservative in business  who has had to take chances in the  world in which he’s worked and starred.   You smear him, as do your fellow establishment Republicans for pressing eminent domain expansion for one of his countless business projects, this one in Atlantic City as one of Trump’s cruelties.   He was “picking” on a 74 year old gal who lived in a house Trump’s company wanted for a parking lot.

How unAmerican!    Fine, Dennis.  All other RNC Republicans are safe from such a case as this…..What has any of them, Marco, Ted, Jeb,  Kasich, Rand Paul,  even charming Michael Huckabee ever built?   What have they ever done outside of lawyering and playing politics or selling words?

I have been shunning you,  Dennis, on radio recently, for I do not want to lose faith in you  as an honest broker you’ve  always been…before our Donald issue.   I, out of curiosity today, turned to your  Radio Show  near the end of the second hour….

A very articulate, bright but nervous guy, well speaking  guy of twenty-some years of military life  guy…who, like me,  LOVES our Donald for his conservative life, for his guts, for his in-your-face every day Americanisms…..regardless how awkward he might articulate them from time to time…and for his CONSERVATISM!

But, Our Dennis didn’t hear his caller AT ALL….

Dennis, like Ted Cruz, is a champion debater. Unless a celebrity, Dennis, by habit, although he tries to be polite,   treats callers as students, lower class  than radio class professionals…..

He politely listened to this eloquent ex-military guy….both of them making me proud of the Americans they both are.  And then Dennis asked,  “Don’t you care when Trump said  George W. Bush lied about  Iraq possessing  weapons of mass destruction”…..and  another similar Trumpism as well, which I couldn’t take note of  fast enough….. Military-hero man inferred “NO”……(As my answer would have been, for the statement was made in a moment of heat)  and went on to list more solid, mindful  items why he became a Trumpy….but Dennis had to conclude the discussion….

……..and re-established himself very high on his Dennis Prager morality throne  saying that he, DENNIS PRAGER DID CARE ABOUT COMMENTS LIKE OUR DONALD MAKES FROM TIME TO TIME.

Dennis felt good.  He had won his debate……but remained totally unaware of why so many of us, including  probably the majority of males who still support both Rubio and Cruz, will vote for DONALD TRUMP whenever we have the chance.

They cannot speak Prager words, for these men and their wives are not debaters or radio show hosts.   Some, perhaps many have never voted Republican before…GOD FORBID!!!! Dennis….. I,  who have been active as a Republican in my continuing 36 years of voting only Republican in every contested election, am NOW  deemed unconservative, and therefore an outcast this coming March 1, 2016 when I arrive to vote for Donald Trump in the primary  as my man for the 2017 White House.

Dennis wimps about Our Donald’s verbage as it is in his profession to do.   Yes, our Donald has spoken and done things LIBERAL in his business past.   But, Dennis, Donald hasn’t had your or even my ‘verbage’ life.   He has been a businessman with other talents needed for success.   He’s very quick minded which seems to interfere occasionally with his verbage sources.

I hope our Donald  guy snubs automaton  Republicans,  AND the  liberal press and the rest of its American empire, AND REFUSES TO HAND OVER HIS INCOME TAXES FROM  HIS PAST….as an invasion of his American privacy that it is.

I hold my breath every time Donald opens his mouth when he’s teed off.   He is NOT a politician or a debater like you, Dennis.   He is a builder, a business man, who seems also to like the entertainment industry….What is so unAmerican about that?

He doesn’t  have your training of smooth-talk language!  I wish he did!    Nor do you at times, Dennis, when you lose it….actually the times I often  LOVE YOU MOST!….because you scream like you think it is, and have the guts to let loose!   Trump  blow ups, such as the one about GW and weapons of mass destruction are products of his temper perhaps from some prejudice he heard from the past instead of swearing at his opponent.  Some times we are not at our best as you truly are, when we lose our cool.   That Donald  was for the War  or against the War in Iraq are  probably both TRUE,  but arrive again  from his verbal past.   Why are we conservatives  telling folks he lied?

From Trump’s very entry into this political race he has met conservative enemies at all fronts…ALL FRONTS.  His entry has stirred more interest, conversation, action, do, what not to do, yes, no, why, who said,  and so on….in my lifetime of being engrossed following America’s presidential elections since the beginning of my awareness  in 1948,  Truman vs. Dewey.

Good Luck, Dennis and Donald!!  I hope you can come to know each other well!   You both will be elevated by the experience, I’m sure!

NOTE:   Dennis!   Has our Donald ever  turned down an invitation to speak with you during your show?   Has he been invited?”

Dennis spent much of his middle radio hour defending himself to his regular conservative listeners for now  teaming  with Trump….much of it pejorative dictated by  politeness rather  intellect.  (Dennis, Our Donald is and was by far,  the best of all seventeen GOP wannabees last  February!    All of those wannabees are far better Americans far better qualified to lead America to a better future than the famous Ugliest  of Americans, the so very crooked, the lying  Hillary Roddham Clinton, wife of that lying William Jefferson Clinton….”ah never had sex with that woman….Miss Lewinsky”.)”

…….What is America’s condition,  reality today, November 13, 2018?   OUR DONALD HAS BECOME OUR AMERICAN CHAMPION……DESPITE OBAMA’S FASCISTICS, DESPITE RINO LEADERSHIP OF  MITCH MCCONNELL AND PAUL RYAN!?!

Hate Speech According to Facebook

Facebook’s Definition Of “Hate Speech” Grows Even More Bizarre

by Jazz Shaw  at HotAir:

We’ve touched on this story here already but it’s since spiraled a bit further outside the boundaries of reality. Facebook recently deleted a post from William Gheen, of the Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC). The post had to do with the murder of Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal alien (who actually was an illegal alien, despite coverage you may have seen in the MSM to the contrary) and how it related to problems with our current immigration law enforcement efforts. The social network giant eventually apologized for doing so, and for suspending Gheen’s account in the process, but their explanation of how the “mistake” took place actually seemed to make things worse. (Washington Times, emphasis added)

The admission came hours after William Gheen, head of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee, said he’d had his post removed and been slapped with a 24-hour ban for posting what Facebook said was “hate speech.”

Mr. Gheen was surprised by the move because his post had talked about illegal immigration but he didn’t think it crossed any lines.

Facebook now agrees.

We mistakenly removed a comment by William Gheen and restored it as soon as we were able to investigate because it did not violate our community standards,” the company said in a statement to The Washington Times. “Our team processes millions of reports each week, and sometimes we get things wrong. We are sorry this happened.”

Keep those last two sentences in mind for a moment. We might write this off as a simple clerical error (or the digital equivalent thereof) but it would be a mistake to look at this incident in a vacuum. Consider also the question of what happened to Salena Zito’s column at the New York Post.

Within two hours I started receiving a handful of notes from people who are friends on my personal Facebook page that their posting of my piece, entitled “Why Trump’s supporters won’t care about Cohen and Manafort,” telling me it had been removed.

Sometimes the removal was accompanied by a message from Facebook. “Spam” was the most common reason given, but a couple of people were told Facebook removed the post because “it did not follow our Community Standards.” …

The post was gone.

Posts and links to Zito’s column were also later restored after people complained. But in each case, it was reported that these deletions for “violations of community standards” were not carried out by an algorithm, but rather when some other Facebook user flagged the message and an employee of Facebook removed it after determining that it qualified as “hate speech.”

This means that there are two avenues for the removal of “offending” content on Facebook. They’ve already admitted to algorithm alorithm which scans the billions of updates every day looking for certain keywords and phrases. But there are also customer service employees manually looking at items flagged by the community and making the determination as to whether or not the content is offensive and worthy of suppression. Neither of these methods is worth a hill of beans and I’ll tell you why.

Taylor wrote about this alleged algorithm problem on Friday, but I think he was being a bit too generous. True, some of these issues may have been caused by a new automated function, but the high profile articles and links that draw a lot of traffic shouldn’t have been caught in that trap. Taylor also mentioned that human monitors would be better than algorithms. True in theory, but they could only (at most) handle entries which are drawing massive numbers of complaints and flags. The number of new updates on Facebook each day would require roughly 91% of the population of the planet to work for Facebook screening content full time to keep up.

I think we’ve been able to glean enough information from Facebook’s frequently cryptic responses to complaints to verify what I was guessing at above. There are two channels to handle “hate speech.” One is automated and one requires human agents responding to complaints to evaluate the content. But there’s zero question that the amount content being flagged and the number of users being suspended skews wildly toward conservative voices. If you hire coders who build the algorithm to primarily squelch conservatives and you hire liberal “customer service” people to handle complaints, that’s a wholly predictable result.

It’s not that Facebook’s code is flawed. It’s not that their monitors are somehow innocently ignorant. It’s that the company is populated by liberals with an agenda, regardless of what Mark Zuckerberg attempts to claim to the contrary. They’re using content monitoring systems which could, perhaps, work if they could somehow be made ideologically neutral. But under the current leadership, it’s destined to fail from the start. And at the risk of being a bit too harsh, this failure isn’t a bug. It’s a feature.

(I believe Prager University is presently suing prejudiced Facebook censors for zapping dozens of Prager University five minute lessons from its world of “communication”.   Prager University  underscores traditional American values,  learnings, and freedoms apparently foreign to Zuckerberg Facebook leftist fascistics.)

Good American Ben Stein at His Best

The Quality of the Citizens Who Propelled Donald J. Trump to the American Presidency!

Please follow the thinking and the presentation of the following supporter of the gifted America-loving 45th President of these United States!

There IS HOPE, fellow conservatives!

Fake News at AP

THE AP’S WAR ON DONALD TRUMP, VOTER ID EDITION

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Tonight President Trump addressed a raucous rally in Florida. His speech featured a call for voter ID, a popular issue with most Americans but one the Democratic Party press opposes, since pretty much all voter fraud favors the Democrats. The Associated Press, perhaps Trump’s most bitter enemy other than CNN and MSNBC, headlined just one “fact” about Trump’s speech: “Trump at rally makes false claim on photo IDs for groceries.”

The AP starts its story:

President Donald Trump on Tuesday wrongly claimed that shoppers need to show photo identification to buy groceries and accused Democrats of obstructing his agenda and his Supreme Court nominee during a raucous rally aimed at bolstering two Florida Republicans ahead of the state’s primary.

Later, the AP elaborates:

Tuesday night’s freewheeling rally lasted more than an hour and included numerous attacks on the media, as well as one glaring false claim. Trump was railing against the idea of noncitizens voting and advocating stricter voting laws when he claimed that IDs are required for everything else, including shopping.

“If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID,” he said at the event at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.”

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about when the billionaire president last bought groceries or anything else himself. Photo IDs are required for certain purchases, such as alcohol, cigarettes or cold medicine.

This is classic Democratic Party press coverage. The AP doesn’t want to deal with the fact that Trump’s point was correct. We have to show ID for all kinds of things; everyone has identification. We should have to show ID to vote, too. The logic is unassailable, and it doesn’t turn on groceries.

Did the AP catch Trump in an untruth? No. Trump wasn’t making a specific point about groceries, he used groceries as an example. He went on to say that “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.” I think it is obvious that Trump was talking about paying for purchases (groceries or otherwise) with a check. Yes, Trump is so old that he remembers when people actually paid for things with checks.

In case you have forgotten, it is common practice for stores to ask for identification when you buy groceries or other goods with a personal check. For those who haven’t used checks in years, this site provides a helpful reminder:

If a business accepts checks, you will need to provide identification proving that the checking account you are using belongs to you. Some small businesses cannot afford the risk of bad checks, so they only accept other forms of payment. However, if you are allowed to pay with a check, your ID will be requested to try to minimize loss from people writing checks against closed accounts or accounts with no money.

Your check should contain your name and address, which should match the same information on your ID. Most businesses require a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or military card.

That obviously is what Trump was talking about when he said that “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture.”

The problem with the Associated Press isn’t just that its reporters are stupid or ill-informed, although that often is the case. The real problem is that the AP’s reporting is so often in bad faith, deliberately pretending not to understand, as in this instance, President Trump’s reference, and doggedly refusing to engage with the point he was making: identification is required all the time, we all have identification or can easily get it, the only reason not to require it for voting is a desire to enable voter fraud. The Associated Press’s reporting is a giant exercise in trying to change the subject.

SPECIAL!! Flake Andrew, the Cuomo Running New York, Says He’ll “Sue” If Supreme Court Overturns Roe!

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: If The Supreme Court Overturns Roe, I’ll Sue

by Allahpundit  at  HotAir:

He’ll sue? Who does he think he’s going to sue, Brett Kavanaugh?

Somehow, some way, this guy is a law-school graduate.

 I’ve said this before but the terrible truth of it bears repeating: Chris is the “smart Cuomo.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he’ll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade.

Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York.

“We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there,” Gov. Cuomo said.

When he says “I’ll sue,” he doesn’t really mean anything by it. He’s terrified that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House primary upset is a harbinger of what Cynthia Nixon’s going to do to him in the gubernatorial primary so he’s making whatever beast-like grunts and whistles he feels he needs to in order to protect his left flank. Next week he’ll be threatening to challenge Kavanaugh to a duel. He’s a clod. But in an indigo blue state, when your daddy was a popular governor, the right grunts and whistles are all you need to win.

As for what he says about New York law being tougher on abortion than Roe, that’s marginally true. You’re free to liquidate your fetus up until 24 weeks but late-term abortions are forbidden even there unless a doctor decides it’s necessary to save a woman’s life. Cuomo naturally wants abortion removed entirely from the Penal Code if possible, which would presumably make the dream of abortion on demand up to the moment of crowning a reality.

Kathleen Gallagher, the director of pro-life activities for the New York State Catholic Conference, a key opponent, said that the governor’s proposal would make late-term abortion available “for almost any reason,” would let health providers other than doctors perform abortions and would eliminate the crime of an “unwanted abortional act.” The latter applies in cases where, for instance, an abusive partner pushes a woman down stairs with the intent of ending a pregnancy. Without abortion being part of the penal code, that partner could still be charged with assault on the mother, but with no crime against the fetus.

He’s going to try to use the lefty froth over Kavanaugh to get New York’s law repealed now. But even if he can’t, is there any doubt that New York Republicans would be steamrolled if Roe really were overturned and the state’s liberal voters demanded full legalization? Cuomo’s scaremongering is an ironic reminder to blue-staters that not only would nothing change in their backyards if Roe were dumped, the new legal regime that replaces it in the state legislature might be more liberal than what Roe has provided them. If that’s possible.
