Bill Clinton said THIS first!??

Well, well….here’s a video all of America should see…their hero Bill Clinton saying pretty much everything Trump’s saying today but being hated for, even being called ‘racist’ for.

Clinton 1995 immigration SOTU | User Clip | C-SPAN.org

Thanks to Mal, who brought this to my attention!

AMAZING video……….If anybody knows Kellyanne’s or Spicer’s email, send it to them!

By the way;  a fun little fact is that one of the only 3 inauguration balls is called “The Deplora-ball!”  I love that!  I love even more that another of the balls is honoring our armed services and first responders…THAT is excellent!

*PLEASE read the post below….and please, bloggers, post something like that Thursday and Friday.   Also, send it to non-blogging family and friends for prayer, please.

PRAY FOR THE INAUGURATION

Please, bloggers, post on Thursday and Friday to please pray that all goes safely and well at the Inauguration Friday…and especially during the parade, which I don’t think any presidential couple ought to walk in anymore with the kinds of threats there are, and the Balls…particularly the one called INTOLERA-BALL….Love that name!

Just ask everyone to pray for safety……it can’t hurt to have MANY praying.  Probably a good idea, also, to ask for prayers on Facebook….and be ready for the nasty leftwingers’ comments.   There are so many already.  They just can’t lose, they won’t think, they’re so into HATE.  My goodness, if we’d acted like this when Obama was elected against our better judgment!   Imagine?

Thanks!

I’ll have a post up other than this, too…………stay tuned.

Martha MacCallum, FOX, and TRUMP

fire

Martha MacCallum is doing a new show called “Trump’s First 100 Days” (or something like that)….no problem.  What does bother me is that she was interviewed on Sunday saying “we’re going to hold his feet to the fire!”  (wait, like every other media venue won’t?)

Who ever held Obama’s feet to the fire, let along a TV channel which supposedly held his point of view?   CNN?  No.   MSNBC?  Heck no.

But FOX?  Ya, THEY’ll hold Trump’s feet to the fire……

Do I think it’s wrong to do that?  No.   Am I tired of having the one venue we can count on to better reflect OUR ideology tear apart those who support our ideology? You bet.
You?

I’m a big fan of Martha’s…let’s see if that stays constant.

old-church

A Minister passing through his church
In the middle of the day,
Decided to pause by the altar
To see who come to pray.

Just then the back door opened,…
And a man came down the aisle,
The minister frowned as he saw the man
Hadn’t shaved in a while.

His shirt was torn and shabby,
And his coat was worn and frayed,
The man knelt down and bowed his head,
Then rose and walked away.

In the days that followed at precisely noon,
The preacher saw this chap,
Each time he knelt just for a moment,
A lunch pail in his lap.

Well, the minister’s suspicions grew,
With robbery a main fear, He
decided to stop and ask the man,
‘What are you doing here?’

The old man said he was a factory worker
And lunch was half an hour
Lunchtime was his prayer time,
For finding strength and power.

I stay only a moment
Because the factory’s far away;
As I kneel here talking to the Lord,
This is kinda what I say:

‘I JUST CAME BY TO TELL YOU, LORD,
HOW HAPPY I HAVE BEEN,SINCE WE
FOUND EACH OTHERS FRIENDSHIP
AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN.

DON’T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY,
BUT I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY.
SO, JESUS, THIS IS BEN,
JUST CHECKING IN TODAY.’

The minister feeling foolish,
Told Ben that it was fine.
He told the man that he was welcome
To pray there anytime.

‘It’s time to go, and thanks,’ Ben said
As he hurried to the door.
Then the minister knelt there at the altar,
Which he’d never done before.

His cold heart melted, warmed with love,
As he met with Jesus there.
As the tears flowed down his cheeks,
He repeated old Ben’s prayer:

‘I JUST CAME by TO TELL YOU, LORD,
HOW HAPPY I’VE BEEN,
SINCE WE FOUND EACH OTHERS FRIENDSHIP
AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN.

I DON’T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY,
BUT I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY.
SO, JESUS, THIS IS ME,
JUST CHECKING IN TODAY.’

Past noon one day, the minister noticed
That old Ben hadn’t come.
As more days passed and still no Ben,
He began to worry some.

At the factory, he asked about him,
Learning he was ill.
The hospital staff was worried,
But he’d given them a thrill.

The week that Ben was with them,
Brought changes in the ward.
His smiles and joy contagious.
Changed people were his reward.

The head nurse couldn’t understand
Why Ben could be so glad,
When no flowers, calls or cards came,
Not a visitor he had.

The minister stayed by his bed,
He voiced the nurse’s concern:
No friends had come to show they cared.
He had nowhere to turn.

Looking surprised, old Ben spoke up
And with a winsome smile;
‘The nurse is wrong, she couldn’t know,
He’s been here all the while.’

Everyday at noon He comes here,
A dear friend of mine, you see,
He sits right down and takes my hand,
Leans over and says to me:

‘I JUST CAME BY TO TELL YOU, BEN,
HOW HAPPY I HAVE BEEN,
SINCE WE FOUND THIS FRIENDSHIP,
AND I TOOK AWAY YOUR SIN .

I THINK ABOUT YOU ALWAYS
AND I LOVE TO HEAR YOU PRAY,
AND SO BEN, THIS IS JESUS,
JUST CHECKING IN TODAY .’

Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees. ~ Corrie Ten Boom

Amen.  Have a GREAT, prayerful, SUNDAY!  (just start with a little one :-))

Healthy and Laughing

THESE MADE ME LAUGH, I HOPE THEY DO YOU, TOO!

How to maintain a healthy level of insanity in retirement:

  1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on, point a hair dryer at passing cars and watch them slow down
  2. On all your check stubs, write “For Sexual Favors”
  3. Skip down the street rather than walk and see how many looks you get
  4. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat
  5. Sing along at the opera
  6. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream ‘I won! I won!”
  7. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the car park, yelling “Run for your lives!  They’re loose!”
  8. Tell your children over dinner, “due to the economy, we’re going to have to let one of you go”
  9. Pick up a box of condoms at the pharmacy, go to the counter and ask where the fitting room is”

Got a 10th or 11th?  🙂  Happy Saturday!

Trump’s Inauguration….

Did you hear about this last night on FOX?    Other channels aren’t carrying it, but I find it important.   It’s just yet another sign of the ‘big, open minded liberal.’

HERE is a partial list of celebs who wouldn’t perform at the Inauguration events…I was a little surprised about KISS because Simmons is a big Republican, and a little surprised at Garth Brooks…..  We even have Democrat politicians boycotting the inauguration…five of them!  They don’t like ‘the plans Trump has for the country’….what, like improving it?

And then we have Rose O’Donnell supporting martial law until Trump is cleared of all accusations…

hate-trump

Many Republicans were horrified at Obama’s election.  We were even sometimes referred to as racist for even suggesting anybody not vote for a man with his ideology…NOT his color.

Do you remember much like I’ve listed above when we were so very upset?  Did anything on this level of hateful protest when the Greek arches came out for Obama?  When he was inaugurated either time?

Is this healthy for a country?  The Left would say it is, that protest is very American. 

Thoughts?

Trump and KIDS, too? (and more) How sad

I read a Facebook post the other day by a friend who’s moved away….She writes that her little girl asked if her mommy could be the first woman president..  Her mother said jokingly that “yes, mommy will move into the WH as first woman president ….Her 8 year old came back with “as long as Donald Trump isn’t there.”    Big laughs in the comments.

I’ve posted here other instances where children are fearful of Trump, hate Trump, etc.

We called it child abuse when we discussed it here last time.

scared-kids

I’m starting to think it’s America Abuse.   WE did NOT LIKE OBAMA, did we make our children hate him, too?   Did you even know who president was at the age of 8?  Where’d she get this bad view of our president elect?   The parents.

Abuse.  The kids have now learned to disrespect adults.  They’ve learned to feel superior to an adult of some accomplishment and who was selected by half of America to lead our country.

The message seems to be “this man is someone your parents don’t like…you must hate him, not support him…while he runs this country”..the inference being “unless we like him, he’s wrong”

What kind of lesson is that?  What respect for the other half of America is that?

Abuse.  Sad for those children who should be raised trusting their country, understanding differences, learning to cope with situations.

The media, professors, students, kids….seems like everybody’s trying so hard to dishonor Trump.

Don’t you think so?

sure….there are plenty more;  this is just a few.

Will Trump Become President?

THIS is tough stuff………(CNN)Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

Is the following info Putin’s great “GOTCHA!” to America?   He might have been responsible for Hillary’s damaging information and a lot of us asked “Could he do it to the Republicans?”  And, voila!  Just days before an inauguration!?

“These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats. This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community case about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton’s candidacy and help Trump’s, several officials with knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

A discussion I heard on this included how there might be Trump surrogate emails with Russia about the damaging info on Hillary.  There’s ‘salacious’ information on Trump, too, but the information of Trump and his part in keeping Hillary from winning, and his financial situations with Russia might be really BAD, worse than any salacious stuff.

There’s a video of the discussion on CNN on the link….I know, I know, you hate CNN,  you hate Don Lemon, you hate Carl Bernstein, etc etc., but I urge you to listen.  The information is compelling on one hand;  I’m inclined not to believe one word of it, on the other hand.

If the information is bad enough and it’s out before Trump’s inauguration, would we get Mike Pence for President or would there be a whole new election?

Jeff Sessions’ session with the Senate

I’ve been really hard on Sessions…always.  Was NOT pleased with Trump’s picking him for AG.

I’ve pretty much changed my mind;  I have had the hearings on as I’ve been doing stuff around here and I’m impressed with his articulation, his not folding to the libs, to not pandering to the cons, to how he remembers to point out why he might not have voted for a bill, something people didn’t know, things in the bill which made him right not to vote for it.

Anybody else watching and have an opinion on him?

Pass these on to younger folks you know!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did…..got a favorite?  WHY?

1. The most important person in your life is the person who agreed to share their life with you. Treat them as such.

2. You might live a long life, or you might live a short one — who knows. But either way, trust me when I say that you’re going to wish you took better care of yourself in your youth.

3. Stuff is just stuff. Don’t hold onto material objects, hold onto time and experiences instead.

4. Jealousy destroys relationships. Trust your significant other, because who else are you supposed to trust?

5. People always say, ’’Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every day.

6. If you’re getting overwhelmed by life, just return to the immediate present moment and savour all that is beautiful and comforting. Take a deep breath, relax.

7. Years go by in the blink of an eye. Don’t marry young. Live your life. Go places. Do things. If you have the means or not. Pack a bag and go wherever you can afford to go. While you have no dependents, don’t buy stuff. Any stuff. See the world. Look through travel magazines and pick a spot. GO!

8. Don’t take life so seriously. Even if things seem dark and hopeless, try to laugh at how ridiculous life is.

9. A true friend will come running if you call them at 2am. Everyone else is just an acquaintance.

10. Children grow up way too fast. Make the most of the time you have with them.

11. Nobody ever dies wishing they had worked more. Work hard, but don’t prioritize work over family, friends, or even yourself.

12. Eat and exercise like you’re a diabetic heart patient with a stroke — so you never actually become one.

13. Maybe this one isn’t as profound as the others, but I think it’s important… Floss regularly, dental problems are awful.

14. Don’t take anyone else’s advice as gospel. You can ask for advice from someone you respect, then take your situation into consideration and make your own decision. Essentially, take your own advice is my advice…

15. The joints you damage today will get their revenge later. Even if you think they’ve recovered completely. TRUST ME!

16. We have one time on this earth. Don’t wake up and realize that you are 60 years old and haven’t done the things you dreamed about.

17. Appreciate the small things and to be present in the moment. What do I mean? Well, it seems today like younger people are all about immediate gratification. Instead, why not appreciate every small moment? We don’t get to stay on this crazy/wonderful planet forever and the greatest pleasure can be found in the most mundane of activities. Instead of sending a text, pick up the phone and call someone. Call your mother, have a conversation about nothing in particular. Those are the moments to hold onto.

18. Pay your bills and stay the hell out of debt. If I could have paid myself all the money I’ve paid out in interest over the years, I’d be retired already.

19. If you have a dream of being or doing something that seems impossible, try for it anyway. It will only become more impossible as you age and become responsible for other people.

20. When you meet someone for the first time, stop and realize that you really know nothing about them. You see race, gender, age, clothes. Forget it all. You know nothing. Those biased assumptions that pop into your head because of the way your brain likes categories, are limiting your life, and other people’s lives.

Z: : FIND FAITH EARLY.   Don’t wait.
