Is It Time for School Vouchers?!?

Herman Cain: He was the living embodiment of the American Dream.  Where hard work and dedication pay off no matter who you are or where you come from.  RIP  

School Vouchers:  Parents, families, teachers, school administrators and politicians don’t all agree on when and how to send kids back to school.  The science suggests it’s OK, but there are still fears by many.

Solution…let parents decide…provide every school age child with a voucher that can ONLY be turned into a school of choice…be it virtual, public, private or charter….allowing funding to follow the child so they can get educated.  Provide home schoolers some sort of tax break.

Protests vs Riots: “Right to Peaceably Assemble” is granted. “Right to  Vandalize, Destroy Public & Private Property, Assault, Injure, Kill, Inflict Fear, Public Nuisance & Hide – These & Other Criminal Behaviors Under Cover of Angry Mobs” is not.

Obamagate: The weaponization of both domestic and foreign intelligence against a presidential campaign from a sitting administration solely for political purposes to prevent the smooth transition of power and weaken his presidency to limit his legislative successes.

That’s what Obamagate is all about…they spied, they lied and tried to cover it up.

This should NEVER happen to ANY American…there should be bipartisan outrage!!!

Rowboat Comes For You… True success is always a work of the Spirit within us (Ted Nugent posted this on his Facebook page. Not exactly my sentiment, but it raises some good food for thought)

By: Bob Dervaes

July 24, 2020

I am forwarding this to a lot of people, but I already know my democrat friends will immediately get turned off and will probably not finish reading it.

We are in a world of trouble, and if Trump is not re-elected in November, then for the first time in my life I will be glad I am in my twilight years. God please be with our children and grandchildren.

This may be the best and most honest political promotion statement you will ever read. It decidedly does not brush objections aside.

You hate Biden? READ it. You hate Trump? READ it. You think there’s no choice? READ it. And, read it with your grown-up hat on.

READ THIS. Read every single word. It’ll take you about three minutes. Be sure to read to the end.

We’ve all been dealt huge responsibility with this election. The first step toward accepting responsibility is accepting it, and the first step toward accepting it is recognizing it.

Are you sickened and despondent with the current campaign and upcoming presidential election?

I consider myself a conservative and do truly believe our country is at a political/economic/moral/ social crossroads. I need to let you know I could/would never vote for Joe Biden to lead this country. To me, he represents everything that is wrong with our current political structure. On the flip side, I look and listen to Donald Trump and I cringe at every rude, insulting comment he makes.

If you find yourself in a similar state of mind, please read the following article:

A Message For Christians About Donald Trump:

Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.

A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof at home with massive flooding up to the 2nd floor.

Rowboat comes. He says, “No, I’m waiting for God. I prayed and I know he’s coming.”

2nd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”

3rd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”

Water rises. The man drowns.

Now he’s meeting God in heaven. The religious man says, “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”

God says, “Hey, I sent you 3 rowboats.”

Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?

Maybe God is trying to tell us something important–that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished. Maybe the rules of gentlemen don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.

Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford or Paul Ryan? Did any of them win? Did they lead the GOP to “the promised land?” Did they change the direction of America? No, because if you don’t win, you have no say.

Paul Ryan couldn’t even deliver his own state, Wisconsin! Nice, but obedient. I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog. My dog is actually a pretty good defender and loyal.

Maybe God is knocking on your door loudly, but you’re not listening.

Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time.

Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead. It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone. Finished. Kaput. Adios.

And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different. Someone you haven’t ever experienced before — because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.

Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church. Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Biden and his billion dollars, and his best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.

I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary, God is pretty tough. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.

Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.

When we won WWII, was God “nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan ? Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton so the good guys can defeat evil?

It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.” That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.

And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan aren’t nice at all–because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America . And God can’t allow that. Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe they’d rather help elect Biden than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.

“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isiah 40:30-31)

God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.

So let me repeat my message to Christians:


I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat. Except he’s more like a battleship!

No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time. Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values. The choice should be easy for Christians.

It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the American

Herman Cain dies at 74 after monthlong fight with coronavirus

Herman Cain has died at the age of 74 after a monthlong battle with the coronavirus.

Cain, a former pizza business CEO and Republican presidential candidate during the 2012 campaign, died Thursday morning at an Atlanta-area hospital where he had been critically ill and placed on oxygen support for weeks, according to Newsmax. He was admitted to the hospital on July 1.

Cain’s death was announced by Dan Calabrese, who edits the website.

“Herman Cain — our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us — has passed away,” Calabrese said in the blog post. “We all prayed so hard every day. We knew the time would come when the Lord would call him home, but we really liked having him here with us, and we held out hope he’d have a full recovery.”

If Conservatives Don’t Defend The American Idea, The Left Will Cancel It

While conservatives might delight as the left devours its own, they must take seriously the assault on America’s foundations. The very ‘American idea’ is at stake.

Leftists are chipping away at America’s ideals and exacerbating the same polarization for which they blame conservatives. They are undermining the nation’s shared history and its commitment to civil discourse. The resulting balkanization will cause alienated Americans to resort to self-imposed segregation and support strident political leaders who promise to fight back.

In a speech before the Civil War, the radical preacher Theodore Parker popularized “the American idea.” Parker’s recipe combined three ingredients: All people are created equal, all possess unalienable rights, and all Americans should have the opportunity to develop them. An abolitionist, Parker believed in one inspired American culture, supported by all Americans, and open to all Americans.

Leftists rightfully emphasize the “open to all” component, arguing for diversity and equality for the disenfranchised, but they neglect the “one shared American culture.” Diversity thus becomes division, as the left works to undermine America’s civic religion.

Democrats Refused To Let Barr Speak Because They Know He’s Right

As bad as the Democrats’ behavior was, and it made toddlers on timeout look like C.S. Lewis, the real culprit here is the media. These pontificating blowhards know that MSNBC and CNN will present their bloviating as speaking truth to power. And power is really what this is all about. This had nothing to do with finding out what is happening across America and why the Department of Justice is undertaking the actions it is, but purely about political theater.

If you need further evidence of this, note that there was not one successful line of questioning that left Barr with no good answers. Had such a moment occurred, not only would it have been newsworthy, it would have been plastered on every screen in the country. That would have been gold. But the Democrats knew there was no gold to be mined here, so instead they threw yellow paint on a pile of something else and the media ate it up with relish.

Waiting for the Counterrevolution

We are in the midst of a revolution, a cultural and racial one, that seeks to refute the past, damn the present, and hijack the future. So far, however, we have only heard from one side, the revolutionaries and their enablers themselves.

Those trying to reject and then reboot America are small as a percentage of the population, but their tactics are diverse, and their frightened abettors and closet appeasers numerous. The result for now is that, as with most cultural revolutions, a tiny percentage of the population seems to be ascending, given that there is no real organized resistance other than isolated and disgusted individuals.

As the rioting continues, Democrats and the media attempt to blame it all on Trump, and most Americans watch and worry, in silence.

We are in the midst of a revolution, a cultural and racial one, that seeks to refute the past, damn the present, and hijack the future. So far, however, we have only heard from one side, the revolutionaries and their enablers themselves.

The result for now is that, as with most cultural revolutions, a tiny percentage of the population seems to be ascending, given that there is no real organized resistance other than isolated and disgusted individuals.

The cultural revolutionaries are a tripartite group.

On the front lines are the shock troops. For the most part, middle-class urban and suburban white kids, many of them in college, graduated, or dropped out, make up Antifa and its affiliates. 

They seem to organize the statue toppling, graffiti, and vandalism, as well as the violence at the demonstrations. They show up in ridiculous black-clad Road Warrior outfits, fitted out with cobbled-together hoodies, bicycle helmets, knee pads, and various sports-equipment armor, and occasionally with testudo-like umbrellas and assorted fireworks, rocks, bottle, and bats. All that is a psychodrama far more interesting than showing up at Starbucks at 5 a.m. to start the day’s machinery.

They are the new superfluous elite, in that their college investments brought them neither prestige nor money, but only debt and sloganeering memorized from the sermons of their tenured and comfortable lounge professors. History shows that when would-be, self-important elites have are in surfeit and extraneous, they grow volatile. They wake up to learn that their vaunted education and training were not appreciated and properly compensated by society.

Why Do Democrats Defend Disorder?

Democrats’ response to the continuing round of urban disturbances makes one think that, yet again, they will snatch electoral defeat from the jaws of victory.

After President Trump’s dispatch of federal officers to protect federal facilities in Portland, Ore., some Democratic politicians characterized the officers as “storm troopers” or “secret agents” bent on sending “peaceful protesters” to concentration camps. I watched attacks on the Portland federal building on television as they were happening. The officers were uniformed and clearly identified. The perpetrators weren’t peaceful protesters but black-clad thugs using hammers and baseball bats to damage the building. Others attempted to set fire to it.

Local and state officials objected to the federal presence, saying it “made things worse” in the city. On the same evening, a group in Seattle paraded to a police precinct headquarters, breaking shop windows along the way. Several officers were injured. In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio was forced to evict occupiers from City Hall Plaza.

Meantime, violent crime is on the rise in cities around the country. Chicago has been experiencing a murder plague visited on mostly minority residents over many months. It seems incredible that elected Democrats are supporting initiatives to defund the police, releasing prisoners from local jails, and even removing law-enforcement officers from schools.

Democrats Rush to Change the Narrative as the Rioting They Encouraged Backfires

The chaos in cities like Portland and Seattle continues, not to mention the skyrocketing murder rates in places like Chicago and New York.

Unfortunately, the Democrat and media response has been to tacitly enable the violence, whether we are talking about their encouraging of the riots, their trashing of Trump for trying to stop them, or their push to handicap the police, which is directly costing the lives of the very minority citizens they claim to care about.

Now, as the political winds show signs of shifting, they are looking to change the narrative. Byron York chronicled some of the recent examples.

Uncle Tom’: A Quiet Earthquake

Albert Einstein once said that if he had an hour to solve a problem, he’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem, and five thinking about the solution. The “race problem” in America is pretzeled into such a Gordian knot because we’ve spent decades thinking up solutions to a problem that no longer exists. And it’s not working. 

Black oppression is dead in America. The good guys won.

Yet political vultures in white hats still drag around the gangrened corpse of oppression, using it like kryptonite to disarm the gatekeepers of the nation’s fragile load-bearing institutions.  

With attacks on black cops, the toppling of abolitionist statues, and the ho-hum attitude toward the killings of blacks and black babies by other blacks, it’s clear that all this mayhem has nothing to do with skin color. “Racism” is the paint they use to color over dark motives that are as primitive as Cain and Abel.  

Think about it: For decades we’ve spent trillions to implement anti-discrimination policies and poverty programs. America is home to the wealthiest group of blacks, likely, in all of history. Black mayors, black police chiefs, black law enforcers, black attorneys, black school officials and black politicians are stuffed into every crevice of city and state governments across the nation. A black man was elected to Earth’s most powerful office – twice! Yet somehow, the screech for “racial justice” is louder now than it was when black oppression was real. 

Race will always be a ticking time bomb as long as America buys into the Al Sharpton version of the black experience – that blacks are still hobbled by race-based inequities rooted in slavery.

The Chicago Gun Myth

Politicians blame out-of-state sellers, but the real problem lies at home.

The tragically incompetent mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, appeared on CNN’s State of the Union this weekend to deflect attention from the horror show unfolding in her city by blaming interlopers for its spiking murder rate: “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons — that is hurting cities like Chicago.”

Although these accusations have leveled by Chicago politicians for decades now, they are a myth.

For one thing, there is no state in the nation with “virtually no gun control” or “no background checks.” Every time anyone in the United States purchases a gun from a federal firearms licensee (FFL) — a gun store, a gun show, it doesn’t matter — the seller runs a background check on the buyer through the NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) database. In some cases, the FFL checks to see if the buyer has passed a background check via a state-issued concealed-carry permit. In states that allow individual private sales, it is illegal to knowingly sell to anyone who you believe is obtaining a firearm for criminal purposes.

Those who cross state lines to buy guns undergo the same background check, and the sale is processed by an FFL in the buyer’s home state. The exact same laws apply to all online sales.

The vast majority of Americans obtain their guns in this manner, and they rarely commit crimes. Around 7 percent of criminals in prison bought weapons using their real names. Fewer than 1 percent obtained them at gun shows. As the Heritage Foundation’s Amy Swearer points out, there have been around 18 million concealed-carry permit holders over the past 15 years, and they have committed 801 firearm-related homicides over that span, or somewhere around 0.7 percent of all firearm-related murders. Concealed-carry holders not only are more law-abiding than the general population as a group; they are more law-abiding than law enforcement.

More willful blindness by the media on spying by Obama administration

The Washington press corps seems engaged in a collective demonstration of the legal concept of willful blindness, or deliberately ignoring facts, following the release of yet another declassified document that directly refutes past statements about the Russia collusion investigation. The document shows the FBI used a security briefing of then candidate Donald Trump and top aides to gather possible evidence for Crossfire Hurricane, its code name for the Russia investigation.

What is astonishing is that the media has refused to see what should be one of the biggest stories in decades. The Obama administration targeted the campaign of the opposing party based on false evidence. The media endlessly covered former Obama administration officials ridiculing suggestions of spying on the Trump campaign or of improper conduct in the Russia investigation. When Attorney General William Barr told the Senate last year that he believed spying did occur, he was lambasted in the media, including by James Comey and others involved in that investigation. The mocking “wow” response of the fired FBI director received extensive coverage.

The new document shows that, in the summer of 2016, FBI agent Joe Pientka briefed Trump campaign advisers Michael Flynn and Chris Christie on national security issues, a standard practice ahead of the election. It included a discussion of Russia interfering in the election. But this was different. The document detailing the questions asked by Trump and his aides and their reactions was filed a few days after the meeting under Crossfire Hurricane and Crossfire Razor, the FBI investigation of Flynn. The two FBI officials listed who approved the report are Kevin Clinesmith and Peter Strzok.

‘Obamagate’ Isn’t A Conspiracy Theory, It’s A Huge Political Scandal

When former president Barack Obama told supporters last week that the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against former White House National Security Adviser Mike Flynn is a “threat to the rule of law,” he was relying wholly on the fiction, willingly propagated for years by a pliant media, that the Russia-Trump collusion probe launched by his administration was lawful and legitimate.

But of course it wasn’t. A string of recently released documents have confirmed that the entire Russia-Trump investigation, which eventually entrapped Flynn and forced then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself, was an unprecedented abuse of power that amounted to an organized effort by the Obama administration to nullify the results of the 2016 presidential election. It was in effect an attempted coup.

If you haven’t picked that up from the news media, it’s not your fault. Instead of grappling with the implications of newly released details about what Obama officials were doing to undermine the incoming Trump administration during the transition, the mainstream media have fixated on Trump’s use of the term “Obamagate,” dismissing it as a conspiracy theory.

Justice Gorsuch’s Dissent in the Nevada Church Supreme Court Case Is Short, but Epic

On Friday, Chief Justice John Roberts inexplicably sided with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court, denying Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley’s request to strike down Nevada’s blatantly unconstitutional 50-person cap on worship services.

While churches in Nevada have a 50-person cap, casinos, restaurants, and other types of businesses in the state are allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity as long they incorporate social distancing measures.

The 5-4 denial of their request was made without explanation from the majority, but with dissents by Justices Alito (joined by Justice Thomas), Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch. Opinions, including dissents, are often lengthy missives that are highly annotated, referencing various precedents and sources, but Justice Gorsuch’s dissent is noteworthy specifically for it’s short, concise explanation, which perfectly encapsulates the self-evident unconstitutionality of the 50-person cap that only worship services are subjected to.

“This is a simple case,” the dissent begins. “Under the Governor’s edict, a 10- screen ‘multiplex’ may host 500 moviegoers at any time. A casino, too, may cater to hundreds at once, with perhaps six people huddled at each craps table here and a similar number gathered around every roulette wheel there. Large numbers and close quarters are fine in such places. But churches, synagogues, and mosques are banned from admitting more than 50 worshippers—no matter how large the building, how distant the individuals, how many wear face masks, no matter the precautions at all.”

“In Nevada, it seems, it is better to be in entertainment than religion. Maybe that is nothing new. But the First Amendment prohibits such obvious discrimination against the exercise of religion. The world we inhabit today, with a pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel.”

The Lincoln Project is just another way for hacks to milk (liberal) donors

A couple of erstwhile Republican operatives who notably failed to elect GOP presidents are now trying to elect a Democratic one.

They call their super PAC, self-importantly, the Lincoln Project. The operation is devoted to churning out harsh, often ridiculously over-the-top ads attacking President Trump. The media and progressives on Twitter — the Lincoln Project’s real political base — inevitably praise the ads.

The project’s operatives tend to this constituency with a slavish devotion, catering to its longstanding hatreds and its momentary passions.

They know that without cable- TV mentions and Twitter buzz, the Lincoln Project — which doesn’t spend much on actually broadcasting its much-vaunted ads — would be a complete irrelevance. So far they have proved more adept at this game than they did at electing John McCain or Mitt Romney.

It is certainly understandable to be a Republican who’s appalled at Trump and refuses to vote for him. But it’s another thing entirely to go raise millions from Democratic ­donors and run ads not just against Trump, but against run-of-the-mill GOP senators whose only offense is having an “R” next to their names.

The Lincoln Project launched with its founders — including politicos John Weaver, Rick Wilson and Steve Schmidt — jointly writing a high-minded New York Times op-ed promising to reach persuadable voters and to heal the nation’s wounds.

Less than quarter of voters say illegal immigrants should be counted in assigning Congress seats

Just 23% of U.S. voters say illegal immigrants should be included in population counts for determining representation in Congress. Seventy-percent (70%) disagree, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. 

The poll results come as California, Florida and Texas would each lose a House seat if President Trump succeeds in getting illegal immigrants removed from the 2020 U.S. census, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis.
