There! I said it and I mean it! I wish everyone a happy experience this Holiday season regardless of your beliefs. The United States is a place that celebrates the freedom of each individual to practice his or her own religious beliefs. So, since it is the season, I am doing just that! Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Holidays to everyone out there!

What do I want for Christmas? I am wishing that the United States and all its citizens can come together and begin to heal the damage and the divisiveness we have all experienced the past several years. It is time for family to reconnect, friends to re-establish connections, and the world to come together and recognize that we have some work to do. We must all come support our new President and pray for the United States of America.

Many have blamed Russian intervention as the reason for the landslide electoral college win by Donald Trump. However, I would like to offer a different scenario. Divine Intervention.  We rallied, we screamed from the rooftops, we prayed for change and we got it.

Far more than what divides us, this election has revealed what unites us. I have never seen such solidarity between evangelicals and Catholics, Pentecostals, charismatics and Baptists. We were brought together with a mutual love for our country and through a mutual faith in God. The election started the conversation but what will come from these new and renewed relationships will have far more impact than anything that could be realized through the election of any politician. We aren’t ending this season so much entering a new one, ready to love the world together to a degree greater than we ever could alone.”-Pastor Paula White of New Destiny Christian Center.

“We can and we must continue the fight to reconcile Billy Graham’s message of righteousness with Dr Martin Luther King’s march for justice. The moment we, as Christian voters, are co-opted by any given political party or ideology, we lose our legitimacy to speak truth to power. Looking ahead, now is the time to rise up as the Body of Christ and as an independent voice that holds political leaders on both sides of the aisle accountable to policies that don’t aim left or right, but toward righteousness and justice, for all.”- Hispanic evangelical leader Samuel Rodriguez

“We have joined in prayers and watched with keen interest the US elections, it is now over and one person Donald Trump is elected. The parties may be different but the overriding interest is the nation of America. America has a God-given place in the history and affairs of the world.” – Ben Kwashi, Archbishop of Jos in the Anglican Church of Nigeria.

“Now is the time for America to bind the wounds of division, we have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and Independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.

It is time. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be the president for all Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.

Working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the American dream. … I’ve gotten to know our country so well. Tremendous potential. It is going to be a beautiful thing. Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.” – President Elect Donald Trump

As we look toward 2017 and beyond, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Holidays…..and may God bless us every one!

How in the World was Trump Elected?

shutterstock_315714344

A friend recently posted an article by the Wall Street Journal, on Facebook. The article was titled, ” ‘Deplorables’ Rise Up to Reshape America,” written by Gerald Seib. Intrigued, as I have always considered the Wall Street Journal to be a respected publication, I read the article. It was insulting to say the least. Sadly, I tossed my Wall Street Journal in the trash and have cancelled my subscription, and with a sigh admit that there is no honest ‘middle of the road’  journalism left in the United States.

We have all heard the bloviating of every major news station and every mainstream publication, who demonized Trump from the beginning, thinking they understand the reason that he was propelled into the White House. Of course, those of us who jumped into the “deplorables” basket freely with enthusiasm, relieved that someone was finally running for office who understood what was happening to our country, know the REAL REASON Trump won. We should all be asking ourselves why anyone would believe the mainstream media in their post-election frenzy, when they clearly lied, misrepresented the truth, cheated in the debates and flat-out lied to the American people during the entire election process. These same naysayers are now standing up clearly delusional in their belief that only they can predict what he will do when he takes control of the White House and the once most powerful Nation in the world.

Well, here’s a newsflash. They didn’t have clue when he joined the race, they purposefully tried to destroy him when he was winning the race and now they will misrepresent, yet again, what they think will happen to the United States now that he has won. In their infinite stupidity and allegiance to the liberal political elite, they scream racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, bigot and destroyer of the atmosphere in a continued effort to scare anyone who might agree that we need change. I think, as a self-professed deplorable, I should explain the real reason he won from the point of view of a person who actually voted for him.

Unfortunately, the WSJ article is full of accusations, divisiveness and polarization which is, in fact, the message of the liberal left. A left who demands tolerance, unless of course you disagree with them, which will result in the destruction of  your personal property, the burning of your business or the beating of your life. Trump won the White House because the “majority” of Americans who voted for him….whites, blacks, gays, women, Latinos, immigrants (legal), rich, poor uneducated and educated, white-collar and blue-collar are sick of the lawlessness and the complete disregard for the exceptionalism of the United States and its people. The majority of America falls in the middle, not only in opinions, but in a class of people who believe that hard work, the rule of law and our constitution should be important enough to defend. This majority is tired of being sacrificed at the altar of Wall Street and the political elites through bail outs and stimulus given to the very people who destroyed the economy for their own personal gain in the first place. Crooks who were handed our money, earned by the same hard-working American people, who lost their homes, their jobs, their savings and retirement plans. Our money, given to the same crooks who were allowed to take the millions they stole and continue with their lives while never being punished or held accountable for their illegal manipulation of the housing market in the first place.

This ‘Trump’ majority was tired of hearing Democrats and our President apologize for the very things that made this country great and safe, while throwing anyone, who held this country dear, under the bus. A bus full of politically well-connected politicians, CEO’s and special interests who were purposefully throwing billions of American dollars to the United Nations while they, in their high and mighty, misguided infinite wisdom, want the UN to rule the world. ‘Globalization,’ the new buzz word of the liberal left. A word that ultimately means that the US should be bowing to the altar of the same power-hungry global elites who think they know what is best for the ‘stupid’ Americans. The same elites that want open borders that will eventually make America a place that no longer honors its citizens or puts them first.  If they could fool us in to handing over our democratic society, then who else in the world would dare question their intentions. The United States is a great nation and one that has served as a beacon of freedom to the majority of the world. A country that offers liberty, freedom of speech and religion without fear of persecution. A country where hard work will reap great success. A country where millions will place their money and their lives on the line, in order to be called an American citizen. However, ignoring the immigrants  who have lined up for years to become a part of this great nation, our political elite give ambassadorships, visas and passports to anyone who will write a check to their favorite charity….them. They chastise anyone who disagrees with allowing unvetted refugees, who have already committed mass murder as a thank you to those who have opened their borders, to overtake our nation by calling us racists instead of realists.

Meanwhile here at home, the liberal left, in their misguided self-professed wisdom decided to fundamentally change our great Nation. They took over our healthcare, promising lies of affordability, while knowing from the beginning that a single payer system was the ultimate prize. Our education system, taken over by government, is infiltrated with liberal professors and educators who slowly but surely poison the minds of our future generations. They begin by destroying the integrity of the our nation and then follow-up with altering our actual history to suit their twisted agenda of eventually controlling the masses.  Dumb down the youth of today so they can control the adults of tomorrow.  Now, their successful infiltration of the education system has resulted in a generation who think they are entitled to everything without lifting a finger. A generation who was congratulated and handed trophies in their youth for doing nothing. A generation who is so spoiled and uninformed that they demean the very people who fought for and died for their rights to insult our country and burn our flag without retribution. The same generation who, under the protection of democracy, burn their communities and destroy local businesses because they didn’t get their way. Riots and destruction funded by the liberal elites who use the youth to do the dirty work so they can continue to pretend outrage.  The same generation who cheer the corrupt political elite who have weaponized our government agencies and used them to attack and destroy anyone who dare call out their destructive agendas. A generation who cannot recognize how they are being used by the left to seal a future for the United States that gives the well-connected and the elites more power and more money while the rest of us are sacrificed at the altar of globalism.

Yes, Donald Trump was elected and has, by the wish of the majority of the people, separated himself from the old Republican party and the Democrats, by standing up for life, liberty and the right of every American to pursue happiness without the interference of a bloated, misguided, noninclusive government, who has forgotten its place.  Trump, though the power of the people, will put our government back where it belongs….a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

Will President Hillary Pardon Herself?

shutterstock_504001402

Although the FBI declared yesterday that Hillary Clinton will not be prosecuted for her crimes involving her reckless handling of classified information, she is still being investigated for public corruption and “pay for play” schemes involving the Clinton Foundation. But what will happen if Hillary becomes the next president of the United States? President Obama will pardon her in order to protect himself from being exposed in her web of lies and deceit or President Hillary will be within her legal rights to pardon herself for all crimes committed since she entered into public life over 30 years ago. She will NEVER be punished for what she has done to this country.

Over the last year the public has been made aware of the “pay for play” scheme that the Clinton Foundation has been and continues to be involved in. This began when Hillary was Secretary of State. In exchange for a hefty donation to the Foundation, Hillary made it possible for Russia to get their hands on 20% of US uranium that is now being sold to Iran. Since the horrible Iranian deal, made by Obama and John Kerry, their number one goal is to destroy western civilization and now, thanks to Hillary, they are on their way. Recently we discovered the Clinton’s paid for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding from donations to the Clinton Foundation. We have all had a front row seat to her willful recklessness in the handling of National Security secrets and classified information. It was recently discovered that Hilary was allowing her maid to print copies of President Obama’s daily CIA briefing and Huma Aberdeen was forwarding classified information to her home computer where her husband, Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, had open access to National Security Secrets and God knows what else, all while he was forwarding perverted texts to an underage child in North Carolina. This sick and twisted web of lies, deceit and willful corruption will continue under the presidency of Hillary Clinton, if she is elected.

The American people have a very important decision to make tomorrow when they go to the polls. Whether or not you are thrilled with either of your choices, you have to look very clearly at each candidate and decide, NOT who offends you the most, but who will FIGHT for the American people. We have seen the Clinton Camp lie and plead the fifth, ad nauseum, throughout the Obama presidency and during her attempt to take the most important office in the United States. The IRS was caught targeting conservatives because of their political beliefs, the Attorney General of the Justice Department was caught by a reporter corroborating with Bill Clinton, while he and Hillary, were both under federal investigation. The mainstream media have been caught red-handed lying to the people, handing over questions to Hillary before debates, asking the Clinton camp what questions they should ask her opponent in the presidential debates. The head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Shultz was fired for rigging the election in Hillary’s favor while throwing Bernie Sanders under the bus and was then immediately hired by the Clinton camp. Add insult to injury, Hillary has pointed the finger at Wall Street while behind closed doors, she has taken millions of dollars in donations from them and has said she would like them to take over the control of our economy. She also wants to grant amnesty to 30-40 million illegals in this country and dreams of completely open borders within the United States. Although we have all seen the devastation occurring in France and Germany at the hands of unvetted refugees, Hillary is determined to open our borders to hundreds of thousands of these same refugees. She will also have the opportunity to appoint up to four new Supreme Court Justices, who she will use to further destroy our rights to the freedom of speech, religion and bearing arms. The lies and corruption have been on clear display for everyone to see and like her predecessor, she has told us exactly what she plans on doing to further fundamentally transform the United States.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump was exposed on a tape using locker room talk and calling out Rosie O’Donnell. His comments were and still remain offensive to most Americans, however, he has not called for an audit on any taxpayers for their support of Hillary Clinton. He has not shared or disclosed confidential information that placed FBI assets in danger or caused them to be killed. He has not sold out the United States to fatten his own wallet. He has been accused of actually following the tax law that was written and put in place by our very own government and is the first candidate who actually made his fortune BEFORE he ran for government office. He has not taken a dime from special interests in this campaign, but has used his own money and donations from United States citizens.

You have to ask yourself one question. Who do you think will use the office of the Presidency to better the country and put the American people first?

Do You Lock Your Doors At Night?

shutterstock_393689320

Do you lock your doors at night? If you answered yes to this question, then tell me why? Do you lock them in order to keep out those you don’t know or those who might intend you harm? Do you lock them so strangers cannot enter your house at anytime of day or night? Do locked doors give you a feeling of security? Do you feel locking your doors will keep you and your family safe?

Donald Trump promised to build a wall to protect the borders of the United States. Why has this caused such controversy? Will a wall make a difference in the number of undocumented aliens entering the country? Will it stop terrorists, drug cartels and criminals from creating havoc or will it stop the transfer of children over the border to be sold into sex slavery? Will it be better for the citizens of the United States? Is it really necessary?

If you do, in fact, lock your doors at night, then you are already a proponent of the wall and border control. What makes the sovereignty of your home any different from the sovereignty of the United States? Locking your doors at night is the same as building a wall, but on a smaller scale.  Should a stranger be able to walk into your home, pick your child’s bedroom as his own,  partake in your meals, force you pay for their doctor’s visits and buy them school supplies? Isn’t this exactly the same thing as leaving our borders open and having undocumented immigrants enter our country illegally yet, receive shelter, education and healthcare, paid for by hard-working American citizens.

What about money? The United States is currently almost $20 trillion dollars in debt. We have been told that social security will soon be insolvent. Money that we were forced to pay to government with the promise it would be there in our retirements, now no longer. We have been told that there is no money for a cost of living wage increase. We have been told that budgets must be cut and services must be stopped for hard-working Americans. Our schools are overcrowded, our teachers are not getting raises and budgets are stressed. Many of our veterans are homeless, awaiting medical care for days, months and sometimes years. Many of those veterans have died waiting for medical services. We currently have approximately a third of Americans who have dropped out of the labor force giving up on ever finding jobs. The growth of the economy in the United States has remained below 2% for over 7 years, grocery prices are at an all time high,  food stamps are currently being used by one in every five Americans and more than 46 million have been on food stamps for over 45 months. Based on these figures alone, can the U.S. economy afford to be caring for an additional 30-40 million undocumented immigrants? In the year 2015, the Office of Refugee Resettlement spend $1.56 billion dollars, the majority allocated to funding unaccompanied minors crossing the border from Mexico. The remainder of the funds went to resettlement, medical services, cash and job and language training to approximately 1800 refugees. However, President Obama has plans to let in 10,000 Syrian refugees by September and increasing that number to a total of 100,000 before he leaves office, which will require a much larger chunk of change. The current amount requested to settle new refugees has topped over $55 billion and the government intends on offering  free housing, welfare and food stamps.

If we look at the additional unauthorized persons who have overstayed their visas and disappeared into the shadows, we can add another 500,000 unauthorized individuals from around the world. As reported in the Washington Times in an article by Stephen Dinan,

“Among these thousands [visa overstays] are from countries connected with terrorism: 219 illegals from Afghanistan, 681 from Iraq, 564 from Iran, 56 from Libya, 1,435 from Pakistan, 440 from Syria and 219 from Yemen in fiscal year 2015 alone.”

What about college? Currently, twenty states offer in-state tuition to undocumented students, five states offer state financial assistance to undocumented students.  Janet Napolitano, former Secretary of Homeland Security under Obama, now University of California system president, recently announced that she will earmark $25.2 million to fund loan programs for illegal students as well as an additional $2.5 million to go to graduate and undergraduate fellowships and funds for textbooks for the same illegal students. The next obvious question would be whether these funds would be going to hard-working American students, whose parents have funded the public education system through their taxes, if they were not promised to illegal students.

The United States is the most generous Nation in the world and our country is comprised of immigrants from all over the world. However, should we all be forced to unlock our doors and sit back while immigrants who have chosen to break our laws, come into our homes and take our hospitality to the detriment of our own citizens and families?

Do we really need that wall and do you still plan on locking your doors tonight?

If Hillary Wins the White House the Liberal Left Will Rule Forever!

 

 

 

shutterstock_423159436

 

What will happen if Hillary Clinton wins in November? There has been much speculation that we will continue to have a failing economy. More regulations. More taxes. More loss of liberty. More loss of Religious freedom. More loss of our second amendment rights. But, outside of these claims, is there a more disastrous outcome to another four years of Democratic rule? If Democrats keep the White House in the next election, they will rule forever. Republicans and/or conservatives will never retake the White House again.

What have we seen happening over the seven and a half years under the Obama administration? He has systematically dismantled U.S. immigration law, and Hillary Clinton has promised to bring about the complete dissolution of our nation’s borders.  Illegals are not being deported, but are being given housing, education and healthcare at the expense of the American worker. Obama and Hillary have promised to open our borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Middle Eastern countries without background checks. We have seen Democratic states offer driver’s licenses to illegals and some are taking it a step further by allowing illegals to vote in local elections.

What will happen if Hillary wins the White House? NBC recently reported,

“If elected, the former secretary of state has promised to build on President Obama’s executive actions and introduce comprehensive immigration reform during her first 100 days in office.”

Hillary’s website explains,

“Comprehensive immigration reform means full citizenship for all illegal immigrants, which would give them welfare access, voting privileges and the ability to bring over their family members through chain migration.”

Once the U.S has been flooded by non citizens, and all illegals are granted the right to vote by Democrats, than conservatives and Republicans will NEVER gain access to the White House again. The left will rule and the citizens of the United States will no longer have a voice or the power to reverse the path of the liberal left.

We have already seen the corruption within our government elections. While Democrats scream that there is no such thing as voter fraud, we have seen record numbers of convictions for voter fraud. We have seen voting machines changing votes, people who have voted in more than one state and the reanimation of hundreds of thousands of dead people who have returned from the grave just to vote for their favorite Democrat. California has already passed legislation that will automatically register eligible voters when they obtain or renew a driver’s license. When you sign up for a driver’s license in California, you DO NOT have to prove that you are an American citizen, therefore allowing illegals to participate in our election system unchecked. You have to ask yourselves why Democrats are against voter ID’s? Why are Democrats so determined to leave our borders open? Why is the current president suing any state that enforces our immigration laws? Why is our current Visa system unmonitored?  Why has our current president continued to allow unchecked border crossings and the release of convicted illegal criminals back into our communities? Currently there are over 200 sanctuary cities in the United States that ignore federal law when it comes to prosecuting illegal immigrants. Add in the obvious rigged system we have experienced during the primaries, and the American citizens have to realize that our government is controlling us and we are slowly but surely losing our rights and voices.

We have seen many Republicans refusing to vote for Donald Trump as the Republican Candidate for president. However, we all have to take note that if we want change for our country, then we must vote for change. If you stand your ground and refuse to vote, then you may lose your right to your voice in all future elections! If Hillary wins the presidency in 2016, the liberal left will rule forever!

Temporarily Banning Islamic immigration: Politically InCorrect or A Matter of Security?

shutterstock_339907127

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.  Is this a smart security move or is it just plain politically incorrect as most on the left and the right have spent the last 2 days pontificating?

Trump’s comments have been called un-American, racist and bigoted. However, if radical Islamist extremists are calling for the destruction of the West, should we not be reviewing our immigration policies that are actually legally allowing radicals into our country? Tashfeen Malik, the San Bernadino terrorist,  entered into the United States on a “fiancee” visa in July of 2014, even though later investigations into her background revealed glaring red flags.  Some left leaning publications like the Huffington Post, suggest that terrorists gaining access through the refugee path is highly unlikely, however, the facts remain a stubborn thing.  We know that at least one of the Paris terrorists who killed over 120 people actually entered into the country as a  Syrian refugee while two others carried false Turkish passports.

The actual problem lies in our porous borders, our broken visa program and the seemingly non-existent concern of our leaders as to who has actually entered into the United States. Yet with all these threats constantly being thrown at us, they continue to open the arms of our nation to refugees and an untold number of illegals, ignoring the potential threats that they may pose.

While Trump is supporting the temporary halt of all Muslim refugees and immigrants, and the political elite and their pundits are screaming that this is un-American and un-constitutional, we have to consider the legality of the move.  In a recent column in the Wall Street Journal, James Taranto, says the proposal by Trump is already a Congressional Act, Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, which says,

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

The article went further in asking whether this temporary ban would violate the First Amendment.  In response they wrote,

“That is a novel legal question; as far as we know Congress has never enacted, nor the executive branch practiced, such an exclusion. But the 1972 case Kleindienst v Mandel strongly suggests the Trump proposal would pass muster.

In the above mentioned case, the Supreme Court ruled that the government has the authority to set immigration policy, at least as applied to nonresident aliens outweighs any free-speech claim an alien may wish to assert.”

In the end, regardless of the responses by Republicans and Democrats, fearing backlash by their parties, the American people seem to be behind the idea of temporarily halting Muslim immigrants and refugees into the United States. After all, it is the American people who are on the front lines, in theatres, at Christmas parties and just going about their lives, waiting for the bombs to go off.

I think common sense is taking hold and temporarily banning Muslim Immigration is strictly a matter of security.
