The Mainstream Media Lost Too

Their still counting and recounting. The truth be told, the media does not call an election, regardless of what they might say. On a set day, at a set time, the electors meet and vote for the president. Only then is a president elected.

When all is said and done, President Trump might have to leave The White House but the mainstream media and the vast majority of the pollsters have big black eyes. Even Fox News got it wrong. They all said that Biden would win in a landslide. Didn’t happen. It is an undisputed fact that it was razor thin.

Indeed even the network anchors had to admit it was a real squeaker. Had the media and social networks not put every effort into pulling their man across the finish line, Biden would not have gotten close. Worse, their lies and predictions likely also effected the result.

Now, do you believe anyone with an ounce of intelligence will ever believe the pollsters or networks again. If they do, it will only be because it is wishful thinking.

As for me, I’ll not put any stock in the social networks. Actually, I never did. However, it only goes to proves my justification in my opinion of them.

Finally, those characters need to brace themselves. When the American voters figure out what the democrats are doing, they will first throw the rotten congressmen out and then, in 2024, they’ll throw Biden out, assuming he lives that long. Worse, for the media, most folks will put the media in the classification of fiction. No one will ever believe them again.

What Really Bothers Me About Jack Dorsey

I did watch the hearings on social media, though I could have predicted the outcome. I knew the three men testifying were very much biased. I don’t need a PhD to figure that out. It does bother me a little, but I expected it.

It was not much of a surprise to me that they would lie. It is sort of what democrats do. They can’t seem to help themselves. It did somewhat surprise me when Dorsey said he didn’t effect elections. I sort of figured it was one of his primary goals. As far as I can tell, it is still his main purpose in life.

However there was one thing that bothered me far more than anything else.

I had this uncontrollable urge to get a pair of scissors and cut his beard off about a quarter inch below his chin. I know it was impossible. Not only was there a great distance between us, I don’t think he would have allowed me to do it. Still, every time I saw his face appear on my H.D. TV screen, I wanted to find the scissors and reach into that image and rid him of that hidius growth.

Appointment of a new Justice

Over and over, I hear the question as to why the republicans should immediately appoint a new justice.

The answer is simple. The democrats would do it in a heartbeat and without any apologies. Wasn’t it Obama that said, “Elections have consequences?”

And by the way, wasn’t it Obama that tried to replace a justice right before he left office? And by the way, this was while the Senate had a republican majority. Obama had the right to try to appoint a justice and the Senate had the right to say no. It is sort of the way things work… it is sort of the way it says to do it in the constitution.

Now we have a legally elected republican president and a legally elected Senate. Appointing and confirming a new justice is not only legal, it is right. Maybe next time we have democrat president, he…or she will not be so flippant.

What’s in a Name

The official name is Democrat Party, though mostly they call themselves the Democratic Party. Andrew Jackson was the first democrat president. many hold the man in high regards but I don’t. I have many reasons but certainly the worst reason is the way he treated the Indians. Ever hear of The Trail of Tears?

Now, there are some who suggest that the name of the party be changed. They give reasons but it is not my point to get into that right now. One thing I do know is that democracy and socialism cannot coexist. For instance, to call it the socialist democrat party would be an oxymoron. Any party that is socialists cannot be democratic. Also, any party that is democratic cannot be socialist. Even if it does exist, it won’t for long. The socialists will take it over.

Mixing socialism and democracy is like trying to mix oil and water. You can put it in a blender and mix it for a while, but after a while, the oil will always float to the surface. By the way, socialism, too will always come out on top. Soon it will be socialism and then a dictatorship.

At any rate, as for a new name, why not call it what it has already become, a socialist party. By definition, in a democracy, the people make the choices. In a society this large, holding a nation wide vote for all decisions would be impossible. As I look around, it would seem the people haven’t had any say in the party for a decade or two. All the decisions seem to be made by the leaders. Moreover, I’m not really sure who those leaders are.

I look at the mayors, the elected leaders of cities and I wonder just who is pulling their strings. Do they really want the rioting in their streets? I look at the US representatives and I think about the way they vote sometimes. Do they really vote their conscience or what their constituents want? I rather suspect they vote the way Pelosi wants them to vote. Every time they vote against her, they rightfully look over their shoulder thinking about who will challenge them during their next primary. I ask you. Is that a democracy? It sounds more like king of the hill, or, in this case, queen.

The methods are no different than the ones they used in Russia and China. Their ultimate goal is control. Their ultimate desire is tyranny. A central rule, first within the nation, and then throughout the world. You doubt me. Read the Communist Manifesto. It’s all plainly spelled out there for one and all to see. Why should you expect anything different. Is there a reason to doubt their goals?

The government of the US is a republic, not a democracy. As Benjamin Franklin told the woman that day, “…if we can keep it.” It would appear that the socialist party would like to make sure we won’t keep it, or for that mater even our nation.

John Kasich: a Disappointment

If I may paraphrase an old Far side comic, it would appear that John Kasich is out standing in his field or so he would have us think.

It is a shame that he has turned out the way he is.  I used to have a great deal of respect for the man, until he ran for president.  Then he became very angry because candidate Trump beat him badly.

The truth of the matter is that Donald Trump beat him fair and square.  He said that he would build a fence on our southern border.  Kasich said he would do the same thing everyone else did, nothing.

The fact is that there were but two candidates that said anything at all about stemming the flow of illegal aliens across the border.  As it turned out, when all the rest fell by the wayside, there were but two left.  Both wanted to stop the flow of illegal aliens.  They were the only two who did.

The flat out truth is that the Republicans never presented a better candidate.  They, all of them, have nothing to blame but themselves.  Donald Trump saw what the people wanted.  He knew what needed to be done to improve things.  Then that was what he promised.  Then, unlike the others, he actually carried through with the promises, this ever though there were some in his own party who fought him.

What Kasich must realize is that when you don’t want the things the voters want, you stand a good chance of losing, and he did.  Not only did he lose but he lost badly.  Apparently, he didn’t get the message.

Now, instead of learning, he has become a belligerent never-Trumper.  As I said, he has become a disappointment.  He did look like a good Republican.  Now, he seems to be another one of those guys who tries to please everyone.  So he stands out in the field, at a crossroad like the scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz” pretending that all roads lead to the great Oz.

Only the road is not made of gold bricks and none of them lead to the land of Oz.  He prefers the likes of Biden over President Trump and that says a lot about him, all bad.

The Obvious Question

I don’t understand it.  The question is obvious and, yet, no one asks it.

You ask a gun control fanatic what we should do if someone enters our home and threatens us and they reply, “Call the police.”  This they do in spite of two facts.  One, without a means to defend myself, I might not be able to call anyone.  Also, of course, it will likely take 4 to 6 minutes for them to get to my house.

When a man broke into my house, I was fortunate.  Firstly, the police only took three minutes…after the call.  (They happened to be a few blocks away) That’s close to five minutes from when he broke in.  Secondly, I had two dogs that scared the man off.  Oddly, when he saw my 60 pound pets, he was more scared of them than I was of his gun.

Now, the liberals have decided to de-fund the police.  Some idiots actually want to completely want to get rid of them completely.

So… and here’s the question we all ought to ask, if I have no gun, just who am I supposed to call when a couple of characters break in carrying 9 millimeter handguns?  You get rid of my gun, I can’t defend myself.  You get rid of the cops, the best I can do is to rely on my dogs.

The truth of the matter is, first they want to get rid of our guns.  Second, they want to take our freedom from us.  They do that the same way protection rackets do.  The promise to protect us if we give up our freedom.  The bad thing is… it just might work.

Blind, Sort of

My wife and I went to dinner with my son and his wife.  I took out my glasses, which were the expensive type.  The lenses were progressive.  The more I tilted my head back, the greater was the magnification.  Today, I’ve given up on them.  My eyes have degraded to the point they don’t help much.

At any rate, I took one look at the menu and got quite a fright.  I said aloud that there must be something wrong with my eyes.  I couldn’t read the menu.

My son laughed and said, “You’re missing one of your lenses.”

Okay.  That was a relief.  Sure enough, when I removed my glasses and inspected them, it was easy to see that one of the lenses was missing.  Fortunately, it had fallen out while the glasses were in my glasses case.  When I shook it a few times, the lens fell out.  With a little effort, I persuaded the lens to take its place and I was able to easily read the menu.

In the third chapter of John, Jesus said, “Unless a man be born again, he shall not see the Kingdom of God.”

Today, we don’t give the statement its proper respect.  We hear a person is a born again Christian and we pay it little attention.  However, we should realize the situation for Nicodemus, the man to whom Jesus was talking.  He had never heard the expression before and he was genuinely confused.

With the one statement, Jesus had managed to accomplish three things, that is besides the confusion.  First, he stated a fact, one that is just as true today as it was then.  It is just as true for us as it was for Nicodemus.  Unless a man is born of the Holy Spirit, he will not see the Kingdom of God.

Second, he got Nicodemus’s attention.  Sometimes, a little confusion is good.  It piques the curiosity and causes us to pay attention.  To be sure; Jesus had Nicodemus’s undivided attention.

Third, it challenged Nicodemus’s pride.  Pride is a bad thing.  God hates it especially because it can and frequently does get in the way of our salvation.  Because of pride, we don’t believe we need salvation.  Because of pride we think we can provide for our own salvation.  Because of pride, some people believe they have no need of God.  Jesus was dealing with the pride that separated Nicodemus from salvation, both here and in the following verses.

If I may, I would like to return to Jesus’s first accomplishment, the statement of fact.  With the one statement, Jesus excluded many from The Kingdom of God.  To be sure, most are far too proud to be born again.  Many don’t believe it is needed.  Far too many think of it as optional.  Some even think it is dumb.

Jesus said it is mandatory.  Like it or not, that is the way it is.  God makes the rules.  Jesus, the Son of God made it clear for one and all.  You have choice.  Accept his word and be born of the Spirit or don’t believe, which will result in an eternity Hell.  If you let your pride get in the way, it is not of God’s doings.  It is your own choice.

Finally, as a side note, I would like to relate one more observation.  I have had arguments with people who were not born again, that is people who did not accept Jesus as their Savior.  I could never understand why they could not understand something I could see so clearly.

…and then it hit me.  People who are not born again cannot see anything wrong with abortion because they cannot see the Kingdom of God.  They do not see the unborn child as a life.  As with my loss of a lens, they cannot see God’s Kingdom because God had not given them spiritual vision.  All they see is the worldly view.

Now, you ask, do I see the Kingdom of God?  Well, yes.  However, my spiritual vision is far from 20/20.  To me it is still blurry.  There are still many things in this world I don’t understand.  I can actually make you a list of them.  However, one day I will see them all clearly.  God will give me perfect spiritual vision and I will understand it all.

As for those who aren’t born again, they will understand it all too, but from a different perspective.  At that point, they will have a different attitude of pride.  Unfortunately, it will be too late.  If you have heard this all before, then you are already getting a second chance, or maybe a third.  You haven’t a reason to ask for another chance.  You’ve already had a dozen or so.

One more thing.  Unfortunately, we who are born again must live under laws that are made by people lacking spiritual vision.  It is, of course why millions of children have been slaughtered in the womb.  It is, of course, why none of us is able to get through to those making the laws.  To this, there are two solutions.  Vote Christians into office.  Bring others to Jesus.  Help them see the importance of being born again.  It is not just for them, but for all of us.  It is especially good for those who cannot speak for themselves.

All the Requirements

It would appear that Kamala Harris has all the requirements that Biden was looking for to be his running mate.  She is female, Black, and she is willing to toe the dummycrat line, even if she doesn’t believe in it.

It does bring up the question.  Has she decided to toe the line because it was what she believes or because she wants the job?  The again, maybe someone made her an offer… like the presidency after Biden’s first term.

On the other hand, why wait for him to complete the first term.  It seems to me as if I remember an amendment that allows a president to be removed from office if he is unfit.  Seems to me that they might have tried to use it on the current POTUS.

Considering Biden’s mind, it ought not be difficult to prove him unfit.  Then she can just shuffle into the White House, just as she originally intended.

Either way, she just might be thinking ahead.  Everyone knows it is easier for a current present to be reelected.  It would certainly give her a leg up in 2024.  Her primary would very likely go much smoother.

I don’t have any inside track on the matter.  Just, so to speak, thinking aloud.  Still, if Biden were to be elected, it might be nice to see how things unfold once he takes the oath of office.  Meanwhile, during the time between when he takes office and when she takes over, it would give a new meaning to a driver-less car.

The Scenario

I rather like the term Scenario.  The first time I heard it was when I watched the TV show, The Greatest American Hero.  Maybe this is not the most accurate place to use the word but, as I said, I like it.

This is what I suspect will be the scenario.  It might not be planned this way.  I am pretty sure no one has written it down.  However, I suspect that the plan is forming in the minds of some very influential people.

Sometime, in the next month or two, a group of men, or women, will approach Bidden with a plan.  Somehow he will become disabled.  Maybe he will lose his voice or maybe he will admit to hoof and mouth disease.  At any rate, he will be convinced that it is time for him to withdraw from the presidential race.  Then, of course, conveniently, they will have someone step in from the sidelines to take over for him.

You might wonder where I get the idea.  I wonder how in the world they can let him continue.  One debate and Biden will be so confused he won’t know what state he is in, or what office he is running for.  (Wait a minute.  I guess that already happened.)

So, before the first debate, they will need to replace him.  My only question at this point is who will replace him?  Will it be Hillary?  Maybe it will be Bernie.  I’m not sure, but I think both of them are too old.  Just who do they have waiting to step in?

I suppose Obama’s wife might step in, but I don’t think she wants too.  Even so, they might try to talk her into it but for one thing.  She would never stand up to the scrutiny.  Not only would she have to answer for Obama’s lies but also for her own dumb ideas.  I am certain that they would lose the votes of almost all those working in school cafeterias.  Also, some of those students forced to eat that healthy food will be of voting age now.  Do you really think she will get their vote?

Regardless of who they decide to put in in Biden’s place, they do have some obstacles to deal with.  First, they might have some problems getting Biden to cooperate.  He might throw a fit.  He might demand a fortune or two.  Then again, he just might dig in and refuse.  If he does that, then what will they do?

However they manage to talk him out of it, they will have to talk the democrats into it.  Besides, Bernie will likely pitch a fit.  He will decide it’s his turn.  Besides, he came in second.  He ought to get the nod.

I suppose, to some degree, there will be others who believe they should be the ones to rise to throne.  Some might have a small reason or two.

The thing is.  The problem is.  They just don’t have anyone waiting in the wings that can beat President Trump and they know it.

Maybe instead of calling this The Scenario, I should have called it The Conundrum.
