Trump and FOX….oh, man

HE JUST CAN’T DO THIS.………..

The very idea of ticking off Martha MacCallum (among many others), who ALWAYS leans in his favor is nuts.  She’s right when she says ‘He is not our boss.’   I’ve never heard her say one thing against him but she’s got to be on the defensive?  Awful.   To call Jesse Watters “MY Jesse” is career-breaking for Watters.  Brett Baer doesn’t need to have gone “from a 7 to a 10,” he’s a professional who is always fair and also always leans Right.

NO DOUBT ABOUT IT:  FOX has FAR too many leftwing regulars on…Donna Brazile, Richard Fowler, Jessica (Sandpaper voice) Tarlov, Linda Marshall,  Austan Goolsbee, and about 5 others who very regularly appear…..But the FOX hosts, other than Chris Wallace (and now Shep Smith is gone and I’m hoping and praying AG Barr had nothing to do with that because I really trusted Barr) and, sometimes Arthel Neville and Eric the Leprechaun Shawn, mostly are RIGHTWING and stand up for Trump.   Unless ONE TIME they say something he doesn’t like, then he slams THEM??  (As most of you know, CNN probably has 2 Conservatives on a week and THEY call FOX “BIAS”?  HAAAA)

Trump simply cannot get so sensitive about every little thing and they do not deserve his treatment lately.  It also makes him look like their fairness isn’t welcome or real, and it is.  I hate any leftwing or rightwing echo chamber.    It’s why I tried SO hard to keep my blog with Blogger so I could have some liberals here; we had some great conversations!  I had 50-800 comments a DAY!   But I had to switch to WordPress because I can block commenters with it….so sad.  I hated being an echo chamber with only one side represented….but it’s worked out well because all my readers are SO bright and add so much, regardless of our mostly all agreeing.    (I know some of you won’t agree with this post!  And I know most of you don’t like my criticisms of Trump when I think he deserves it……….LIKE NOW !)  🙂

AND BY THE WAY, my linked article includes this:  “In a lengthy conversation, Trump complained that Fox News was not covering him fairly, according to three people with knowledge of the call. ”    I, for one, am REAL SICK of “people with knowledge” of everything Trump does spilling beans CONSTANTLY.  I’m sure he is, too, but what’s he DOING ABOUT IT?  I know he knows how to say “You’re FIRED!”   I believe a lot of it is Kellyanne Conways’s disgusting husband’s big mouth.  And hers, too.

Sunday Faith Blog

This Sunday Blog is dedicated to HUMOR….

“Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl.”
The priest asks, “Is that you, little Joey Pagano?”
“Yes, Father, it is.”
“And who was the girl you were with?”
“I can’t tell you, Father. I don’t want to ruin her reputation.”
“Well, Joey, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?”
“I cannot say.”
“Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?”
“I’ll never tell.”
“Was it Nina Capelli?”
“I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.”
“Was it Cathy Piriano?”
“My lips are sealed.”
“Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?”
“Please, Father! I cannot tell you.”
The priest sighs in frustration. “You’re very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you’ve sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.”
Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, “What’d you get?”
“Four months vacation and five good leads…”

I HAVE TO LAUGH AT THIS:   I did a search for “Did Jesus have a sense of humor?” and the Billy Graham site addresses it with this:

“…think for a moment about the image Jesus used to describe how hard it is for a proud, self-confident rich person to enter the Kingdom of God. He said it would be like a camel trying to go through the eye of a needle (see Luke 18:25). Can you imagine His audience not laughing as they tried to picture this in their minds? I can’t. His point was serious—but He used an exaggerated, humorous image to get it across.”

I’m thinking that if that’s the only example Graham’s people can come up with, then…no, humor wasn’t probably big to Jesus!

Another site said “People thought things were funny that we don’t find funny today.”  Another site said “When Nathanael said ‘nothing good comes out of Nazareth,’ Jesus didn’t get angry…he probably was amused.”  Well….maybe!  I hope so.  With all the sad things Jesus saw, with constantly being hounded by the Pharisees and Sanhedrin and many of the common people, why would humor be tops on His list?

But, that’s okay!  He had saving our souls on His mind and I’m down with that!!!

(I’m thinking He’s probably laughing at us NOW!)

Happy Sunday!

Fires, insanity and utter kindness…

So you all know there are fires in California….don’t know how it’ll be on Saturday, I’m typing this on Friday afternoon, but it should be fine if the winds, which are typical (as are fires) this time of year, kick up again.  The area where the fires are is known for BIG TIME winds….”Santa Anas”, they call them.

I was listening to news on the fires just now and they were showing Recreation Centers in cities a distance from the fires where residents who’ve been evacuated fled to……You can’t believe how many people who wanted to help were rolling boxes of bottled waters and all kinds of packaged foods into those rec centers….and a mobile book truck was going from rec center to rec center giving free books and coloring books with crayons to children.  A REAL outpouring of kindness and love.   But then I hear this….

“Two women arrived with lots of burritos they’d made for the evacuees but THE RED CROSS WON’T SERVE HOMEMADE FOOD”    I thought THE RED CROSS?   Can’t these women go directly to families inside the rec center and give them to the hungry people FROM THEM?   Nope!   The ladies had to leave with their burritos.   This reminds me that you can’t give used mattresses to the homeless, God forbid they get a bug or something…better they have to sleep on the ground?

But, my mind was cheered again after being so angry at the Red Cross when they interviewed a very pretty  young Mexican woman who had brought juice boxes and bottled water for evacuees….She said “I’m an emergency dispatcher but today was my day off….(she started to choke up here…and so did I!)…but just because I’m not working today doesn’t mean I CAN’T HELP!”     Oh, MY GOSH!  THIS is the lovely immigrant we want.  Yes, she had a tiny accent…but perfect English.   I love that girl’s heart!

Disasters like this are funny……..they bring out the BEST and the WORST.   Let’s concentrate on THE BEST!

And GIVE THEM THE BURRITOS! 🙂

Am I CRAZY to ask?!

Someone on TV the other day said Donald Trump should get MEDICAID  to help the homeless, the mentally ill, drug addicts, etc., cared for.  

It would cost a FORTUNE but I believe this might be the only way out of the problem we’ve created.

I’ve been thinking that in Los Angeles, in the large deserts around us and into Nevada, why couldn’t we build housing for these people…with HVAC, counselors, rehab, retraining?

What do you think we can do about the large number of homeless across our country?

Jon Voight….fighting as hard as he can

Legendary Hollywood actor Jon Voight ripped the Democrat Party in an interview published Wednesday, saying its lawmakers no longer represent the interests of the United States and the American people.

“I’m a big supporter of our president, and I feel that what has happened with the Democratic party is something that I’d never thought I’d see happen,” Voight, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, told The Hollywood Reporter.

“This is not the Democratic party of John Kennedy, who I was in support of,” added the Deliverance star.

Voight went on to say the Democrat Party was once home to “many heroes,” but no longer have any in its ranks today and decried what he called “slander and name-calling and lying” by its lawmakers.

“Somebody has to stand up and say that and punch back at that nonsense. This is not America. The Democratic party doesn’t represent America anymore,” the Academy Award-winner told the entertainment magazine.

Further, Voight condemned Hollywood leftists for attacking “anybody who is for Trump or who is for the Republican party.”

“The Democratic party has been undermined and overtaken, and I wish it could recoup itself and that there could be people who would stand up for the Democratic party that we have known and we have counted on and there are not anybody in that group who is standing up and protecting it. They are falling in,” he said.

Voight also predicted President Trump will win back the White House in 2020 irrespective of the House Democrats’ formal impeachment inquiry, who he previously branded a “war against truths.”

“Donald Trump is going to win the presidency once again and this is going to be proven to be nonsense just as the two years with [the Mueller Report] and millions of dollars wasted and has taken those people in the House who are Democrats away from doing the business of the people,” he stated……From Breitbart News Site

GOOD FOR JON VOIGHT!

The Left is trying SO HARD to do ALL they can to hurt, embarrass, humiliate, shame, cripple and GET RID OF TRUMP.  It’s SO obvious you’d think even some Democrats would wake up to this.   Now some are saying Trump’s going to be hit with 26 new sexual allegations.  WHERE DO THEY GET THIS STUFF?    I’ve been saying for MONTHS that there are hundreds of liberals getting paid to DIG, DIG, DIG….DIRT ON TRUMP is the assignment.   He must be made of REAL STRONG TEFLON.  And so must Melania, who’s humiliated every time she appears in public…wrong clothes, expensive clothes, not wearing a patriot pin at some event …the headline was “MELANIE BLAMES EVENT FOR FAUX PAS”  So I read the article…she didn’t blame them, all she did was say she hadn’t received one.    SEE THE INSIDIOUS UGLINESS OF MISCHARACTERIZATIONS.

I don’t know about TRUMP, but I’m sure TIRED AND DISHEARTENED BY IT ALL.  And I believe this reaction of mine is EXACTLY what these paid diggers looking for DIRT are doing it for….wear the public down to where the last person they’d ever vote for was Trump.

IT HELPS TO HAVE PEOPLE LIKE JON VOIGHT STAND UP FOR TRUMP AND FOR DECENCY…AND AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS, LETS FACE IT 🙂

HER GENERATION:

Our fellow commenter and good friend Mal emailed this to me;   I know you’ll be happy you read it.  She just can’t be the only one.  I am positive thousands of young people feel this way.   It’s up to her and those like her to make that MILLIONS:

This article was written by a 26 yr old college student by the name of Alyssa Ahlgren, who’s in grad school for her MBA. It’s a short article but definitely worth a read.

My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!

I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. 

I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. 

I see people talking freely, working on their MacBooks,  ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me.  We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. 

Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. 

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. 

Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.

Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow. 

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”

Never saw American prosperity! Let that sink in. 

When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth.   Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided. 

My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. 

I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.

Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? 

We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. 

Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.

Why? The answer is this,   my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.”

SWORN IN? SO WHAT?

The Right seems excited that if Trump’s impeachment situation goes to trials, ‘everybody’ will be on the witness stand…McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Schiff…you get the picture.

My question I’ve wanted to ask  you all is this:  

DOES ANYBODY REALLY THINK THEIR BEING SWORN IN IS GOING TO FORCE THEM TO TELL THE TRUTH?   

WHAT IS THE POINT TO A HEARING?  HOW DO YOU MAKE PEOPLE TELL THE TRUTH?

I don’t think it’s possible……….you tell me.

 

Thanks…Z

Live Life like THESE STORIES!

Saw this and had to post it if, for nothing else, to get away from POLITICS for a while!  I loved it and hope you do, too, and that we all live like this!

By Source Unknown

{1}
Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.
That’s FAITH

{2}
When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.
That’s TRUST.

{3}
Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.
That’s HOPE.

{4}
We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
That’s CONFIDENCE.

{5}
We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.
That’s LOVE.

{6}
On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence
‘I am not 80 years old
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’
That’s ATTITUDE.

Have a happy day and live your life like the six stories

When I was a child I thought nap time was punishment. Now it’s like a  mini vacation.

THAT IS FOR SURE!  HAVE  A GREAT TUESDAY!

To leave Syria or not to leave Syria….

…it’s no question anymore.  It’s DECIDED on, apparently.

“Blind sided” is the term our military experts are using to describe what Trump did without their input.

“Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened for months to launch a military operation across the Syrian border. He views the Kurdish forces as a threat to his country. Both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. have warned that allowing the Turkish attack could lead to a massacre of the Kurds and send a troubling message to American allies across the globe.”

Even Kevin McCarthy this morning said that America doesn’t let its allies down and leave them to get slaughtered.  Some are saying that Syrian police will now leave their posts in fear of what will happen to them.

Waking up this morning was politically TOUGH!   The news STINKS:  Impeachment now includes a second whistleblower … This Syrian decision by Trump is greeted happily by NOBODY.  NOBODY. (except probably some American soldiers and their families…)  And Trump told Republicans on a phone call last night that “Impeachment won’t look good on my resume,” which I would hope is a bad attempt at humor, but……….Or good humor to the wrong bunch because SOMEONE LEAKED IT.   AGAIN.

I need to watch less news and stop caring so much that things go well in our country.  Hard to do.

SHOULD WE BE LEAVING SYRIA AND EXPOSING KURDS TO THE PUBLIC THREATS OF TURKEY?
