The OSCARS…..great stuff from Mike Huckabee

by Mike Huckabee

Last night, ABC aired yet another Hollywood awards ceremony in which incredibly wealthy, attractive and privileged celebrities congratulated themselves on being oppressed and misunderstood. They again left the walls of their gated mansions with their armed security guards and traveled past heavily-armed police into the walls of the Kodak Theater, where they hectored us about how terrible guns and security walls are. This year included an extra layer of lectures on open borders and welcoming all migrants to come on in, from people who won’t let you get within 200 yards of them unless your name is on the VIP list.

As expected, aside from a brief, welcome appeal to calm bipartisan outreach from host Jimmy Kimmel…

…the Oscar telecast was filled with liberal virtue-signaling. From all the anti-Trump speeches and wisecracks to the blue ribbons on many gowns and lapels, signaling support for the ACLU for suing over Trump’s immigration order, the message was that Hollywood is bravely standing up to that fascist dictator Donald Trump, who’s stripping away our civil rights by enforcing the immigration law passed by the Democratic Congress in 1965.

Two points: First, if they really believe Trump is an iron-fisted, vindictive dictator who’s taking away their civil rights, why do they feel perfectly secure in constantly mocking and attacking him on national television? Think anyone would dare do that in North Korea or Cuba? How about in Iran, the nation that won Best Foreign Film? The celebrities roared their approval when a statement was read from the Iranian director who boycotted the ceremony, about the injustice of Trump’s temporary immigration ban on Iranians. Do any of those clapping stars realize that Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, and that they were applauding a lecture on human rights from someone who lives in a country whose leaders oppress women, kill gays and want to commit genocide against the Jews?

Second, liberals accuse Trump of being sympathetic to the KKK with no evidence of that ugly charge. Do these celebrities realize that the ACLU has repeatedly defended the Klan and other extremist groups that surely would never merit an Oscar invite? Unlike today’s liberals, the ACLU believes that the First Amendment applies even to those who say the most unpopular and abhorrent things, not just to people you agree with. Free speech wouldn’t be very free if it only applied to government-approved speech. So by their own guilty-by-association standards, the Oscar attendees are more closely tied to the KKK (they openly support the Klan’s attorneys!) than Trump is. Shame on them!

Granted, I didn’t watch the whole show (did anyone?), I just read some of the highlights and lowlights. But then, since the Best Picture winner has made only $22 million in theaters, I think it’s safe to assume a lot of people had very little interest, continuing a trend that’s been going on for years. Last year’s “Best Picture” winner had a total box office gross of only $45 million. Do you even remember what it was? I’ll give you a hint: its title was “Spotlight.” I’ll bet you still don’t remember it, do you?

There was a bit of Divine humor at the very end, though, when the wrong card was put into the Best Picture envelope. The producers of “La La Land” were already making their acceptance speech when it was announced that “Moonlight” had actually won. My first thought was that it was reason #10,943 never to trust Hollywood accountants. My second thought was that after all that posturing on how they knew more than the President about foreign policy, immigration, national defense and every other difficult subject, in the end, they couldn’t even hand out a trophy without screwing it up.

And my final thought was that maybe “La La Land” really did win, but Hollywood didn’t like the results of the fair election, so they just changed the rules after the vote was already in and gave it to the more PC choice.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

Trump; Blame the media for some…NOT ALL, folks

The father of a SEAL who died in Yemen now won’t meet with Trump.   Trump and his daughter flew to Dover to meet the plane carrying his son (below).   Not that their being there made it necessary for the father to meet with him, but it is part of the story.  The father wants an investigation into the timing of the raid because he’s chosen to believe this was ‘botched’, botched by Trump, of course.

dover-trump-seal

And then there’s this kind of shocking info:

I read this HERE “Rumors are now surfacing that since the Obama administration had extensive knowledge of the operation and our enemies knew we were coming, officials under Obama tipped off the militants in order to botch Trump’s first military raid.”

I would hate to think that was true about Obama or any past president…REALLY hate it.   And, of course, this will never be proven if it is true because the Obama-lovin’ media wouldn’t ever divulge this.

To be fair, HERE (and I like to think more accurate for any sitting president) is an article explaining it from another viewpoint.  Should both sides be on shows like CNN or only the Anti-Trump one, which WILL be the only one covered, you can be sure?

I’m not sure Trump’s presidency is going to last a year, though I hate to say this.   Imagine a father not meeting with a sitting president?  We have a celeb golfer, Rory McIlroy who had to ‘defend’ his playing golf with the president!  WHAT?   There is SO much hate, in every single way, every single day,  and most people seem to believe every story that paints the very worst about him.

anti-semitic

Plus, there have been SO many things done and said by the Trump administration which have given the media a chance to slam him HARD, like THIS:

He’s being labeled anti Semitic, though his beloved daughter and son-in-law who he admires greatly are JEWISH!   As are their 3 children!  But look HERE...do you think Trump’s NORMAL in his treatment of the question which he calls ‘insulting?’!! I don’t believe for a split second Trump’s an anti Semite, but is it really insulting to ask Trump, as the Jewish reporter did: “”What we are concerned about, and what we haven’t really heard being addressed, is an uptick in anti-Semitism and how the government is planning to take care of it,” Turx said.”

How the HECK is that INSULTING, Mr. Trump??   Would YOU agree with Trump when he says “”Not a simple question. Not a fair question. OK, sit down. I understand the rest of your question,” Trump said. “So here’s the story folks. No. 1, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life. No. 2, racism. The least racist person. In fact, we did very well relative to other people running as a Republican.”   Turx raised his hand again and spoke up.  “Quiet, quiet, quiet,” Trump replied. “See he lied about — he was going to get up and ask a very straight, simple question. So, you know, welcome to the world of the media.”

We can’t blame the media for everything, folks…He deserves crap for this type of ridiculous reaction.

On a very happy note (because you all know I WANT TRUMP TO SUCCEED in spite of the things I point out here from time to time), the new DNC Chair, Tom Perez, is a NUT!  And he makes Keith “Jews did 9/11” Ellison Deputy DNC Chair?  Now he’s saying how together the Dems are and there must be an investigation into how the Russians rigged the election!   This guy couldn’t BE better for Trump and Republicans!  He’s a REAL NUT.

AND…again, TO BE FAIR:  IN TRUMP’S DEFENSE BY A LONGTIME FRIEND.

I believe it’s up to us to be gentle with people, show caring and kindness. I believe it’s more important today than it’s been in a long time.

Things are getting so increasingly ugly and disheartening in America, with the leftwingers outrageously dumping on Trump every (EVERY) second of the day and night, with boycotts to anything Trump, to celebrity golfers having to defend playing with Trump, to dress designers writing horrible things about Trump on their couture dresses, to CNN’s constant mischaracterization and cheap shots, with leaks possibly from the agencies which are supposed to protect the president and our country, with SO much ….. I don’t need to write them all here.  I simply couldn’t, anyway, no room.

SO, we have our own worlds made up of our spouse and children, our parents, our siblings, our dear friends at work and at church and on the blogs, etc.   We have our home, our street, our neighborhood, our community, and it’s not necessary or possible for each of us to heal the whole world, but it might be necessary to heal our individual worlds, small as they might be.

fruits-of-the-spirit

In Christ, we can be joyful, peaceful, good, patient, gentle, self-controlled, etc…..the Fruits of His Spirit are available for us and we must share them with those around us.  Calm people, encourage people, help people, inspire, laugh with people….help your little world.

It might be all we’ve got, and that’s not so bad!  And, believe me, blessings will abound.  So much nicer than heart breaking news.

Pray about this………..help folks.  It’ll help all of US.

Hillary, Obama…..”PROTEST! RESIST! PERSIST!”

Both Obama and Hillary have now advised “resistance and persistence” to their Democrat constituents.   Now that might not read “GET THAT JERK TRUMP” to you, but it does me.  What kind of an ex-president and ex-Sec of State, Senator, First Lady, etc., would promote RESISTANCE when you know that has involved injuries, fires, blocking free speech, etc.?   Do they even think twice about how far that could go?   Do they care that it could do such damage to our collective psyches, our communities and to our country?  Do they even care?  HERE is what Hillary’s saying…here is a clip from the link:  “The challenges we face as a party and a country are real,” a smiling Clinton said. “So now more than ever, we need to stay engaged in the field and online, reaching out to new voters, young people and everyone who wants a better, stronger, fairer America.””

HERE is Obama telling people in Germany:  “I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests,” he answered. “So, I would not advise people who feel strongly or who are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised during the course of the campaign, I wouldn’t advise them to be silent.”  Oh, he feels so big and important as an ex president mouthing off in European against our elected president, doesn’t he?

His nastiness continues:

“If we are not serious about facts and what is true and what is not. Particularly in an age of social media when people are getting their information in soundbites and snippets … if we cannot discriminate between serious arguments and propaganda, then we have problems,” he said.

I think some presidents have had protesters…I think Trump’s have been over the top.  I admire Obama’s rhetoric;  makes him almost sound fair and even-handed……I wish Trump had a tiny bit of that way of speaking, just a tiny bit;  saying things that really slam the other side but make it sound like you’re complimenting them…typical Obama.

I can understand Obama and Hillary, staunch Leftwingers,  hating Trump and Conservatism;  I can’t understand their knowing that Trump was legally elected and at least deserves a chance to win over all Americans.   Or, maybe they do?

When I think of the dignity Bush showed even as Obama blamed most everything on him……

Polls/statistics……….rigged?

So, there’s THIS……..and there’s THIS

Most people think that these facts don’t jive, don’t belong together..“Z, why’d you publish these together as if there’s some connection?”

I think there IS some connection;  I think the Trump numbers are rubbish.   Do YOU see my point?

Alan Colmes, Rest in Peace

Alan Colmes has passed away at the age of 66 after a short illness.  I could barely listen to his leftwing blather, but I have always heard, from liberal and conservative alike, that he was one of the nicest men you ever wanted to meet.  Here’s what Hannity said:

“The Fox family, Dr. Jocelyn Colmes, Monica Crowley and me personally have lost one of life’s most decent, kind and wonderful people you’d ever want to meet. When Alan and I started Hannity and Colmes, there wasn’t a day that went by where we didn’t say we were two most fortunate men in all television,” he said.

“Despite major political differences, we forged a deep friendship. Alan, in the midst of great sickness and illness, showed the single greatest amount of courage I’ve ever seen. And through it all, he showed his incredible wit and humor that was Alan’s signature throughout his entire life,” Hannity’s statement continued. “I’m truly heartbroken at the loss of a dear friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jocelyn, Monica and his entire family. He will be dearly missed.”

God be with them all.  This is surprising and very sad news.

Not the Russians! THE DNC? yup

Has any of you heard about THIS?   I watch a LOT OF NEWS, and  I hadn’t heard a thing.  HERE is even MORE on the subject….This could be one of THE biggest stories ever…. Can you imagine?

russia-did-it

So…it occurred to me that the reason the Left’s constantly, interminably harping on “THE RUSSIANS DID IT!” is because it’s deflecting from the fact that THEY DID IT.  Think so?  I do.

Let me know if you’d heard about it and if you think it’s probably true;  It’s so nuts I wouldn’t believe it if it wasn’t presented by Allen West and Brent Bozell’s group, The Media Research Center.

Do you think this will come out to the public?

A Valid Observation?

Dennis Prager says he can’t get published in mainstream leftwing papers, neither can most widely read Conservatives.  It got me thinking….

Hillary Rosen, leftwing Clinton surrogate, couldn’t come up with anybody but Jonathan Karl as  ‘conservative’ (ridiculous, who’s ever though Karl is conservative!?) out of MSNBC, CNN, and ALL the networks…..O’Reilly repeated his assertion Monday night that Leftwingers make up a huge majority of the media and she jumped in and said “BUT, FOX, Rush, and the Wall St Journal are HUGE…NUMBER ONE, Number One and Number One!”

I’m sitting there thinking, “If they’re NUMBER ONE, don’t failing newspapers want a piece of that action….MORE READERS?  Isn’t this a PERFECT example that leftwing media is all about ideology and not SALES?  If they were for SALES, they’d welcome the HUGE Prager audience, some of FOX, RUSH and the Journal, right?  Of course!”

*****
leftwing-conspiracySO, it’s all about NO CONSERVATIVES NEED APPLY…..are leftwing papers saying conservatives could probably would help them financially, but WE HATE YOUR THINKING?   The LA Times used to have a great editorial page with opposite columns on one page, one Left, one Right.  Highly read. Gone some years ago.

I wish that Prager, Coulter, Sowell, Whitman and other Conservatives with huge followings would write an OPEN and VERY PUBLIC LETTER to the media saying “My numbers are huge, why not publish me?   Think you’ll lose money?”  But, they won’t. LET THE PUBLIC SEE the utter hypocrisy, that it’s because they don’t agree with them!  But, they won’t.

Think they should write an open letter?

**** The good thing is people are finally seeing the leftwing conspiracy….

Trump, NSC and Netanyahu……..check this out;

White House dismisses NSC aide after harsh criticism of Trump…..(that’s the headline)

I thought “Oh, no, another scandal!  Someone fired for criticizing Trump!” (which isn’t the best optic, no matter how WE feel about it, right?)

SO, I Googled Craig Deare’s name to see who’d appointed him…was he an Obama hiring to NSC,  I wondered?   No, he was a Michael Flynn guy….HERE is information missing from the article above, of course, but as pertinent as it gets, don’t you think?  Yes,  a Flynn pick.   I told you I have always had my doubts about Flynn……

ALSO:  I had to share with you a Fareed Zakarias quote from CNN Sunday morning after a short overview of the situation…. “It seems Netanyahu has always liked the Iran Nuke Deal Obama created by Obama, but Trump and people who follow him will not allow themselves to understand and accept this.” (I paraphrase but I’m very close).

MEANWHILE, there’s THIS,   THIS,  THIS, and more…..NOW who’s doing FAKE NEWS again?

Trump, Sweden and Muslim attacks

“Sweden is NOT HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MUSLIMS….BELIEVE ME..Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about!”, they say!...LOOK AT THIS!

We all know Trump can get loose with facts (i.e. not having them before he speaks, SUCH an easy thing to solve, right?) but here’s a sentence that caught my attention from the link above which I thought deserved discussion and correction:  “Sweden’s crime rate has fallen since 2005, official statistics show, even as the country has taken in hundreds of thousands of immigrants from war-torn countries like Syria and Iraq.”   Which, I’d have thought, means that Sweden doesn’t have problems with Muslims, right?  So I Googled a little………I only did it for a few minutes and found these...Here,  here, and HERE are more NON terror attacks in Sweden.  Oops.   Maybe it’s the SWEDES WHO ARE LYING, wondering what Trump “…is smoking?”

GeeeeZ
