Between A Liberal Rock and A Conservative Hard Place

Splitting The Red Sea.jpeg

On the alt-liberal left–a “radical Islamist” leaning and violent Antifa. 


On the ultra-conservative right–Neo-Nazi and White Supremacists.


And in the middle (regardless of political beliefs)–good people of faith and integrity with seemingly nowhere to turn.

________


{And I don’t know what this is, but this is what I am hearing…}


Behold and fear a great fear.


Evil and violence will soon be upon you.


The forces of crushing hate will collide and spread throughout the face of the earth.


And the people will suffer a very great suffering.


And they will call out to the L-rd, and they will repent from their misguided wayward ways.

And the L-rd will see their judgement and he will cause a great stirring in man.


Great weapons will be released and a very great cleansing of man’s hearts will occur.


I say to you redemption is upon you.


Redemption first by great pain and suffering, and then by great joy and exaltation.

And peace and morality will be restored on Earth.


Here this and hear it well, the time is short and good people must ready.


Gather yourselves together and prepare for the end of days and the beginning of days.


Those that are good and gathered will see peace and survive the onslaught before my mercy while many others will perish.


{Then the streaming tapers off…}

________


I don’t understand the call for a gathering–aren’t we safer perhaps spread out?  


Perhaps the gathering refers to G-d’s promise to gather His people from the four corners of the Earth.


– And they will walk the sacred middle ground through the Red Sea to the promised Holy Land. 


The liberal left and conservative right have been overtaken by violent nutty extremists and radicals.


They have “split” from normal thinking and doing the correct thing–they have gone over the top!


A new righteous center–driven by faith and a moral compass –desperately needs to emerge now.


Hopefully, this will bring us to a new peace and prosperity–because the current isn’t working. 😉

Derangement of Conscience

Charlottesvile.jpeg

Watching the Neo-Nazis and white supremacists march in Charlottesville, VA yesterday made me sick.


They represent the worst of what human beings have to offer–hate, bigotry, and violence. 


The event was culminated when a car driven by one of these hate-mongers apparently intentionally slammed into a crowd of anti-protester and killed a 32-year old woman  and injured 19 others–what a sick, sick soul!


This miserable event just 2 days shy of 2-months from when Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) and 4 others were shot at a baseball field in Alexandria, VA by another nut job from the alt-left. 

 

Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) said it right when he stated on national TV last evening:

“The hate and division must stop, and it must stop right now.”


But as we face large, looming enemies on the international scene — like dangerous Axis of Evil, North Korea and Iran — with weapons of mass destruction aimed at our shores and cities, all we can do is hate and fight internally.


What is wrong with this country now — when so many seem to have abandoned personal integrity and national unity — and shoot verbally and physically at each other instead of at the real enemies that seek to lay waste to our beloved homeland of the free and the brave?


Soon the missiles will reign down and the hate will smelter in the derangement of conscience.

Polarized and Not Going To Take It Anymore

War and Peace.jpeg

So they say about Washington politics, “if you’re not on offense, then you’re on defense.”


In the polarized mood of the nation, this has never been more true. 


The alt-left and alt-right are stronger than ever and pointing fingers and fists at one another. 


Each side, the ultra -liberals and -conservatives are duking it out over who is is going on the offensive today.


Only to be outmaneuvered the very next day and be placed back on the defensive. 


Who communicated with the Russians today?


Who used their private email today?


Who committed perjury and lied under oath today?


Who was offensive and even violent at rallies and protests today? 


And on and on…


You’re either on offense or your stuck on defense!


And the more polarized and hateful of each other this nation has become, including in the media, the more the outrageous the accusations and the more alternate facts and fake news. 


But what I learned today is that this doesn’t just apply to politics.


Religion is another prime source for discrimination and hate of your fellow man. 


I remember learning that over history, more people have died in wars in the name of religion than for any other reason.


So too today, the “crazy-hard line” ultra religious and the “throw-it-all away” irreligious are just as polarized. 


The religious mock the irreligious as self-haters and atheists and the irreligious make fun of the rightwing religious as abusive and robotic.


Moreover, any disagreement results in insults and loathing over who is morally superior.


Of course, everyone cites sources and authorities to show why their position is the correct one and everyone else is wrong about religion and G-d. 


Attack, defend, attack, defend. 


No wonder nothing is getting constructively done.


No wonder children are confused. 


No wonder those around us laugh at our seeming inability to come together, all as G-d’s wonderful creatures. 


Who will be on the attack today and who will be on defense. 


If only we could have a panini instead of all this anger, hate, extremism, and rejectionist bias toward our fellow man. 😉

U.S. National Demise From Political and Media Extremism

When media becomes propaganda, this country is in serious trouble.


We are so busy telling each other what “the truth” is that nothing is getting done. 


While Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and radical Islamist terrorists increase in strength and bravado, we are fighting one another here at home.


As more people in the U.S. gravitate to the extremes–alt-left and alt-right–lines in sand are drawn between us, while the red lines defending our common interests are eviscerated. 


Self-destructing from within, while we outwardly spend $600 billion on defense–34% of that of the entire world!


No strategy or weapons can defend us, when fake news and alternate facts and hatred of one another is at our present-day core. 


Tearing us apart, the endless hateful calls of:


– “Not my President”


– “Resistance and persistence


– “Love Trumps Hate”


– “Deplorables, Nazis, Communists!”


The political extremists and their media henchmen are leading the charge to America’s downfall and possible doomsday. 


Unless we, the American people, can moderate and unify and love each other again.


We must before our enemies take advantage of our inner divisiveness and weakness.


If we don’t come to our common senses, then we may very well pay a most heavy price in our persons, property, and freedom that we all so cherish and value. 😉

Fake Media

Fake News.png

So it’s not supposed to be this way. 


While of course, there is a media bent, it’s not supposed to be a downright bias–the media’s job is to report the news, not take absolute sides. 


Yet these days, the alt-left media seems most hell bent on incessantly attacking the President and working to delegitimize him.


And the President is calling the news media, “the enemy of the American people.”


Russ Limbaugh commented: “The media did not make Donald Trump and they can’t destroy him.”


It started with the election when biased media outlets “ordered employees to destroy Trump“and tried to convince Americans that he absolutely couldn’t win


And only 4 weeks into the now Trump presidency, they are calling that “Congress should impeach Donald Trump.”


What type of Democracy is this?


For eight years, Obama ruled and the media glowed bright with near endless praise–even when things went very wrong, the media played the Secret Service and took the bullet shielding Obama’s every move.


Now with the Trump, the media is no longer the Praetorian Guard, but the the assassin in waiting–plotting and maneuvering for their chance to fire the fatal shot. 


Will it be Flynn, the Russians, the Islamic Terrorist immigration ban or something entirely else. 


The media has the people’s ears…they can spread the news or seed gross and even malicious propaganda. 


While Trump wants to put America First, many media outlets are instead looking to put Trump out to his final pasture. 


When they are targeting the President in such a merciless and endless barrage of negativity and hate, can even President Trump survive? 


While the alt-left media–with funding by billionaire George Soros–kicks and punches away with every article and news segment, it’s our democracy that is surely taking the power beating and dying the death of bias and overthrow.

Depends On Who You Ban

Bouth Sides Of The Mouth.jpeg

So the alt-left and media are all aghast at President Trump placing a temporary travel ban from 7 muslim-majority nations for national security reasons!

That’s out of more than 50 majority Muslim nations in the world or less than 14%.

And these were the countries identified by the former President Obama as the “countries of concern” because of terrorism!

See the 7 nations (out of 50+) highlighted below:

Afghanistan
Albania
Algeria
Azerbaijan
Bahrain
Bangladesh
Brunei
Burkina Faso
Chad
Comoros
Djibouti
Egypt
Guinea
Indonesia
Iran
Iraq

Jordan
Kazakhstan
Kosovo
Kuwait
Kyrgyzstan
Lebanon
Libya
Malaysia
Maldives
Mali
Mauritania
Mayotte
Morocco
Niger
Nigeria
Oman
Pakistan
Palestine
Qatar
Saudi Arabia
Senegal
Sierra Leone
Somalia
Sudan
Syria

Tajikistan
The Gambia
Tunisia
Turkey
Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
Turkmenistan
United Arab Emirates
Uzbekistan
Western Sahara
Yemen

What is also unbelievably amazing is that 6 of these 7 Muslim nations with a temporary ban from President Trump, plus 10 more countries, for a total of 16 Muslim countries have a permanent ban placed on Israeli Jews!

Where is the alt-left and media outrage about this travel ban on Jews?

Oh, apparently for the alt-left, compassion, dignity, equality, and human rights don’t apply to Jews today any more than they did during the Holocaust where 6,000,000 were left to die in a genocide at the brutal hands of the Nazi’s.

To them, a permanent ban on Jews is apparently fine and national security of the United States who cares–that’s what talking out of both sides of the mouth is all about.

The Divided States Of America

Divided States.JPEG

So the way the alt-left are fighting it out with President Trump…with violent protests, riots, marches, insults, beatings, fires, broken windows, and sheer contempt,  you’d think we were in a third world country under a brutal dictator, or worse.  


Gone is the respect, decency, compromise, and diplomacy among valid differences of opinion and points of view. 


Talking it out and working it out…forget about it. 


Aside from taking up arms, it’s almost like this country is in a second civil war


The United States has become the divided states. 


Hitler, Nazis, Stalin, Commies!


California wants to secede (like Texas wanted to previously). 


Lawsuits against the President.


Screams, posters and groups of “Not my President.”


Celebrities threatening to pack up and leave the country. 


Refusals to carry out the laws of the land. 


People joining the resistance and underground. 


Secret communications in agencies


Plotting and threats for a military overthrow of the Presidency


Calls for blowing up the White House.


Tweets calling for assassination and pics posted of what it would look like. 


Yet there are no death camps, no razor sharp wire, no attack dogs ripping the flesh off people, no forced labor, no death marches, no brutal beatings, no starvation of prisoners, no poison gas showers, no crematoria, no firing squads, no mass graves, no gruesome experiments on twins, no vicious assaults, no sexual abuse and rapes, no Star of David patches to be worn, no threats to exterminate. 


While of course, we need to ensure “Never Again” for all of us– even the slightest inkling of it–is there really a bona-fide “again” or “inkling” here in the first place?
