Response to Mary Scoles' Second Opinion.

I'll give our short weekly debates another chance this week to be understood by everyone. I take umbrage at your final characterization of my comment last week about the KKK. I do so because it's clear that the average reasonable person would not understand it as you apparently do. Even if taken as "incendiary" (hair on fire) that should not change the clear meaning of the comment. My baldness, I guess, is a sometime benefit.

Contrary, again, to your interpretation, I do not believe that your interpretation of [my] sarcasm "was unfair." Rather, it was untrue. Fairness had nothing to do with it. And while I'm glad you are happy "to express your regret in finding a meaning [I] did not intend [?]", the meaning I expressed is precisely that which I intended. Your reference to pain is puzzling.

Kelly, about your mantra, "Say what you mean and mean what you say". Kind of catchy. My statements are surely "in the public realm" as soon as they limp from my weary keyboard. You claim they are then in "the audience's hands, and the chance at clarity expires." The hope is always that the audience is composed entirely of reasonable people, and that clarity endures, as I'm sure you wish - leaving me with expectations of some small apology for your misreading of my column.

Sarcasm can surely be "risky", with the reader as well as the writer. Both need a good ear. So, as they used to say in the days before the Chinese virus, when law school classrooms were abuzz with educational theories, and Kindergarten classes might hear "Time to put our listening ears on".

****

I'm alone from here, headed for the reefs of questionable language, in support of our war fighters. Trump's 4-year spirited effort to reestablish our military strength may have come too late. After 8-years of Obama's dereliction in the defense of our nation, and Biden's blanks, we find ourselves short on weaponry and absent leadership. Our Communist enemy, China, can hardly resist attacking us, especially over Taiwan. They see Biden with his scull full of dust bunnies. Looking forward, even more enticing to China is our second in command, Kamala Harris, with zero experience beyond the bed springs. In other words, America is off-balance, without leadership, at a time when our enemies are flush with money, confidence, showing a lean and hungry look - a great time to start a war.

Trump's recent characterization of the police officers testifying before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot has outraged some. However, from those millions of veterans who have suffered selflessly through seemingly endless war, I can hear a roar of approval of Trump's expletive across the land.

They are fed-up with the growing weakness that the feminist influence has intruded into the ethos of our fighting forces - all for the sake of Political Correctness; they're tired of humiliating training in women's high-heels, abandoning ship under Syrian guns, abandoning the command of the world's largest man-o-war (carrier Roosevelt), Co-Ed infantry, "transgenderism", removal of urinals to accommodate female sailors, and un-punished refusals of direct orders from Commander-in-Chief by a Coast Guard Admiral protecting 12 members of his LGBT crew.

"Trump has told some people close to him that several of these [emotionally testifying] officers strike him as weak and as “pussies,” according to two sources familiar with the comments..." Trump has also maintained that these men seem “broke[n]” by the events of Jan. 6, and that they do not have the supposed toughness or character of the law enforcement officers who, on the whole nationally, still widely support Trump and his policies."

There is deadly weakness in WOKE military promotion. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III, and Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, personify this debilitating weakness. Honors of the past don't always hold up in the present. Victory demands more than the Hollywood appearance of heroism, it demands the true grit of the men who won WWII, like Adm. Chester Nimitz, Adm. William Halsey, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and General George Patton. I can't see Patton having his men on display trying on women's high heel shoes! Combat is always a man's work. Women can do virtually all other military tasks, but they demean the soldier and undermine his work of direct combat when they try to participate in the fight. Ask our enemies - or listen to an expert under fire:
"I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position" We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly, and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living [!@#$] out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose, like [!@#$] through a tin horn."
Gen. George S. Patton.

Yes, that's the way determined men talk in combat. Sounds a little like Donald Trump in his political wars.

 


 

I have to say I'm not very happy about the way this column is sliding off its original path. This little paper has always been, and will continue to be, open to all without threat of canceling. I especially invite those who strongly disagree with my personal opinions.

However, my liberal attitude here has some minor expectations, one of which is that I not be misquoted or grossly misinterpreted. I try to keep things simple to facilitate this objective.

But people do make mistakes, and I'm sure my immediate concern this week involves such a mistake.

These remarks are addressed to both Mary Scoles and Pedro Bazan.

Pedro: Your characterization of the Texas bill is false. No space for detail here, but a little Googling will reveal the truth. No, Texas has not banned schools from teaching about MLK’s speeches or KKK’s history with white supremacy. 11Alive.com•8 hours ago. Facts do matter.

"Many of the curriculum requirements in HB 3979 are already a part of TEKS. For example, in a ninth grade U.S. history course, TEKS requires schools to teach students about MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the civil rights movement, the women’s rights movement and Native American history." But I don't intend to waste time restoring the truth about this bill here, when everyone can get it online there.

Mary (Scoles): I know you're outspokenly liberal, but still, I'm surprised at your carelessness in reading my reply to Pedro's letter. I did not ask Pedro (misquote) "Are you saying that there was nothing good about the KKK?" No, Mary, that is NOT what I said. Pedro's statement "...and the ways in which it [KKK] is morally wrong." My response was sarcastic. I said: "I have to ask, is there a way in which the KKK was ever morally right? (Emphasis mine). Get it? Most people know the KKK is evil. Because you know my moral standards this mistake was unwelcome.

My comment about Pedro's inflated respect for law school theories was an exercise in deflation. The creators of CRT are scholastic pee-wees undeserving of the rave reviews they have received from their radical liberal friends. Who exactly anointed them to re-educate the entire American student body? A failure of peer review. Let the courts rule from case law, not law schools from their fevered moot court personal opinions!

Frankly, I'm totally fed-up with all of this racism BS. If a man (by Democratic Party authority) can change his sex, why not his race? Maybe even become God? It's just a little chromosomal juggling, right? And the Democratic Party always follows the science - right?

White guilt? That's a Democrat thing. But, I'm Irish.

On slavery, again. You question "the color of the enslaver's skin". Interesting. In Greece it was probably olive colored. In Rome, maybe white, unless by a freedman, then who can know? In Egypt, darker brown. In China a yellowish hue (check out their million-man Uyghur slave camps). In India, light brown? North American "Indian", ochre tint? Aztec? maybe coffee colored. And, in all Africa, of course, black, until we come to Arabia, where most "enslavers" were - are - darker brown. Scandinavian (Vikings - great slavers), mostly white. With a sort of "skin scrutiny" system it might be much easier to identify those white supremacists, in every era.

To do justice in describing ubiquitous "enslavers" skin color (a curious undertaking) we would need a professional paint company's color hue slider. You know, like when buying house paint. Then we could assign numbers according to the color shade in question, and date it all to the correct millennia, (when we're in for other mandated stuff). Those numbers (for example) New York albino white (10) to Mozambique Ebony (1,000). Suntans should be unlawful as attempts to confuse one's scale setting. In this way we could identify and rate the most enterprising slavers over time. Imagine the Reparations!

BUT: There is a troubling problem presented here by our scientific scheme. In our attempt to assign guilt by identifying the skin color of all the "enslavers" we would find that every skin tone on our scale of "enslavers" shows equal guilt, at different times. The great enslavers, like the ancient Athenians, Romans, Middle Easterners, New World Aztec, and Huns, Franks, Vandals, Saxons, and Visigoths - etc. are all guilty as sin. After Noah, slavery has always been the reserve currency of the dominant classes. We would each recognize our own skin color within our "enslavers" color slider mechanism. The words of the philosopher Pogo, "We have met the enemy and they are us" rings true.

Let's remember that only America forced her "enslavers" to stop - at the cost of 600,000 souls, our bloodiest war. I can think of no other country so determined to Let Freedom Ring, except perhaps Israel.

 


 

Hello everyone. This week I will do my best to respond to "Part Two Second Opinion, by Kelly Scoles, Leslie G. Marshall of Piru, and, once again, Pedro Bazan, of Santa Paula. But, I'm only running on one piston today. Will go until I hear a clunk.

First, Leslie Marshall.
Hello, Leslie. I'm afraid I dove into your letter before I understood the scathing irony and sarcasm with which it was written. At first I misconstrued your second paragraph as a bold advertisement for Planned Parenthood's activities, and I wasted 400 words in defense before I caught on. My profound apologies for jumping the gun, and equally profound kudos for outspoken truth. I will leave my introductory remarks to your letter as they are while striking the rest. Now, I've got to start over!

*****

Hello (again) Leslie Marshall. (original response)
Thanks for the letter. If you are new to the Gazette, be forewarned of my Judeo-Christian bias, what's more my Catholic bias, and just to spice-up the debate, Irish-Catholic bias, in issues of moral concern.

Unlike yourself, I did not enjoy the Fillmore Pride Resource Fair because my Catholic-Christian faith condemns this behavior (despite recent heretical-hierarchical expressions to the contrary.) Whatever scientific knowledge I may have is also repelled by obviously unscientific theories.

More to the point, this celebration should not have taken place without the authority of public opinion being consulted.

I'm afraid you're right that "Anger, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust" can be expressed artistically, and have been over the millennia. By "poignant 'nod' to the seven deadly sins (and Pride being the deadliest) it should be only fair to balance that evil with a "nod" toward triumphant good (the seven theological virtues); Faith, Hope, Charity, Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice.

*****

Here I begin again, after emerging from my initial dive. I want to caution readers to read your (Leslie's) letter with an ear to sarcasm. I was fooled at first.

Following in the footsteps of pedophile Dr. Alfred Kinsey, and racist-eugenicist Margaret Sanger, PP marches on.

*****

Hello Pedro Bazan.
It's tedious business answering your letters, Pedro, because, like so many leftist Democrats, you always have the facts backwards. Let me demonstrate.

You seem stuck on the latest theme of white supremacy. Tell me, were Hernán Cortés and ‎Francisco Pizarro‎ brown supremacists? Are brown supremacists better than alleged white supremacists? Should Mexico (New Spain) have been left to the Aztecs? Did the Aztecs know things about slavery and mass murder? Think about it.

Next, the institution of slavery. Did Cortés and Pizarro institute slavery on a massive scale? Hmm, I think so. Try to find it in a Howard Zinn book. He (Zinn) described himself as "something of an anarchist, something of a socialist." But slavery was not new to the New World.

And then you bring up "the eugenics movement." Do you know who started this fiendish movement? It was the friend of "Dr." Alfred Kensey (uber racist and pedophile), Margaret Sanger.

And, once again, you bring-up the Ku Klux Klan "and the ways in which it is morally wrong." I have to ask, is there a way in which the KKK was ever morally right? Consult Howard Zinn.

Then, your defense of Critical Race Theory. Pedro - you need to bone-up on American history, and uncritically adopting a halfwit idea like CRT is no way to begin. No one involved in the construction of this back bench "theory" is competent to teach us anything. It is all Leftist propaganda, and the country is thoroughly and quickly rejecting it.

It's good to see you have a sense of humor, Pedro. It flares-up with "That's right ladies and gentlemen, CRT is not a grade school curriculum, rather it's a law school level course that specifically explores how laws are tied to racism, contrary to what a lot of people believe." Pedro, I can assure you, from personal experience, that being "a law school level course" is unworthy of scholastic recognition. The folks who dreamed up this thing are not Solons of higher knowledge - they are just second-string wanabe players for fun and profit.

Lastly, you recommend that Texas legislators expand CRT. I would agree - if that included a close examination of Aztec treatment of surrounding tribes: "Aztec priests, using razor-sharp obsidian blades, sliced open the chests of sacrificial victims and offered their still-beating hearts to the gods. They then tossed the victims' lifeless bodies down the steps of the towering Templo Mayor." "Around 20,000 people were sacrificed a year in the Aztec Empire. Special occasions demanded more blood – when a new temple to Huitzilopochtli was dedicated in 1487, an estimated 80,400 people were sacrificed."

Heck! At this rate they could have run out of people! Thank God for the Conquistadores!

You call for "a study of American racism" before we forget our racist past. But, remembering our Brown Supremacist past, of those bloody old days, maybe it's best to forgive and forget.

 


 

Two responses today, (if I can) from Pedro Bazan, and to Kelly Scoles, "Second Opinion".

Hello Mr. Bazan, welcome to the Gazette.
My first question for you is "Are you a citizen of the U.S.?” My curiosity is aroused by the tenor of your letter. Your closing comment "the USA is an amazing Christian country" seems to contradict your opening disparagement of America, your denial of her "Judeo-Christian values", "when the United States is far removed from being founded on them." You further diminish our Declaration by attributing it to a bunch of alleged non-Christian Deists (Jefferson, Franklin, and Adams) "none of whom were Christians..." Also, you insist "Maddison" (actually spelled with a single "d") was another one of those pesky Deists, allegedly casting a shadow on the Judeo-Christian birthright of our Constitution. (See "Christian Deists" below). Study beyond Wikipedia, Pedro.

You claim the Constitution "contains wording that removes religion from state governance”. This final mistake in your failed attack on the moral and legal underpinnings of our great country can be stated in a single sentence: Despite the mixture of religious and philosophical beliefs among our Founding Fathers, every Founder, to a man, believed absolutely in the necessity of religion in the new nation if it was to be successful. They all agreed that without religion the experiment would certainly fail. The closest, perhaps, to being an atheist among them all, was Thomas Paine. ("Common Sense. 1776"). Even so, "Paine's deism—the belief in God, but the eschewing of organized religion—is often erroneously confused with atheism." "He believed that the only valid role of government in religious affairs was to protect freedom of religion." As for Jefferson: "Christian deism is a standpoint in the philosophy of religion stemming from Christianity. It refers to a deist who believes in the moral teachings—but not divinity—of Jesus."

One of the most contentious Constitutional amendments is to be found in the First: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;". The word "establishment" here refers to making any religion official, that is legally and financially official - like the Church of England in that country. It is NOT hostile to religion in the way you misunderstand.

About your Biblical references, Luke 12:23 does not mean that every person in the country must sell all their possessions - this would make the rich poor, and the poor rich. Luke 3:11, this tells us to be generous with our food and clothing. No more generous nation has ever existed than America. Your ignorance of this generosity says a lot about your anti-American background.

Matthew 22:39, love thy neighbor. The Golden Rule, often neglected in the West, always despised by communism, and all forms of totalitarian governments.

You continue: "Americans refuse to truly help the poor..." This is an easily discernible lie. Go back to your type of country where the poor are well taken care of -- Cuba, China, Russia, and Africa.

You mention slavery. What other nation on earth demanded and forced slavery out of its country through 4-years of bloody Civil War (600,000 dead). The British Empire (largest in history) did away with slavery with a mere Act of Parliament in 1807, banning trading in enslaved people within the British Empire.

Your letter is full of obvious calumnies about America because you are ignorant of our glorious history, much of your comments are humorously erroneous -- like references to the KKK, the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, prominent Confederate Army general during the American Civil War, and the first Grand Wizard of that terrorist organization, Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Pedro, I'm having second thoughts about reviewing your letter. I'm thinking it may have been written by an ANTIFA organizer.
I would be glad to send you a list of reliable sources on American history -- that way you might learn enough to avoid being seen as such a disgusting ingrate.

Cordially,
Martin Farrell

Postscript: Incidentally, I see you are proud enough to sign-off with "University of California, Los Angeles". What are you doing in such an American institution? Check out the free education offered in Cuba!

*****************************************************************************

Hello, Kelly (Scoles) "Second Opinion".
You've raised far too many issues for me to respond to, and, surprisingly, I would agree with most of them. You lose me a little on the Vietnam War. We had some terrible generals then, and still do. As for President Nixon, Shakespeare's words say it best: "The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones." (Julius Caesar).

Kelly, answering your opinion this week is duty worthy of that three-legged tap dancer on ice -- and I'm dealing with my sciatic nerve.

What worries me now: "U.S. commander in Afghanistan steps down, marking symbolic end to 20 year war..." Taliban will be given billions in US armaments, and will quickly take over. Our generals have forgotten how to win wars!

"Taliban surge sends thousands fleeing..." "Talks with Taliban are making 'very little progress' as militant group gains momentum, says Afghan official". Only a fool would expect otherwise.

And: "What does the dawn of demisexuals tell us?" Next come the quadsexuals. It tells us that America has become degenerate, physically, mentally, and morally -- with little hope in site.

**************************************************************************

Kelly, next week, please narrow it down - just to be fair.

 


 

This week I have to respond to two letters and Kelly Scoles' column.

Hello, Art Sanford Sr. Good to see you back.

Art, I can see the sarcasm steaming from your words. But let me flip them over to show my true attitude towards the individual LGBTIQA (no +?). I do in fact wish them all, "security and well-being". That is due to all American citizens under our Constitution - because America is the greatest nation on earth. "Psychological abuse", "rejection, beatings", etc. are all unacceptable under the law. But remember, these protections are not exclusive to LGBTIQA advocates. They apply to those, particularly to the young, attempting to apply their scholastic talents in the classroom. This 98% of the student body should not be misguided by adult LGBTIQA persons dressed like fairytale dandies in order to recruit youngsters to the cause.

Your sarcasm gets a little slippery in alluding to the "Marlboro Man, Rock Hudson and the original ‘G Man,’ J. Edgar Hoover." Rock was a gay man, and Edgar, under suspicion. Though both, great actors. By the way, I know no misogynistic persons, but I support the philogynists of this world, and, personally, find women to be beautifully unique, as created.

Lastly, why do radical Democrats seem to be so intensely depressed all the time?

A short postscript: You're correct in recommending that LGBT members "live their lives with purpose". That's good advice for everyone. But it's evil to advise LGBT members, or anyone else, to "avoid making the normal (i.e. white, heterosexual) uncomfortable", because stripping the sarcasm from your speech is like tripping a line of PC dominos - ending in a racist heap.

Get some help.

*********************************************************************

Hello again, Scott (Duckett).

Let's begin with some agreement in terms (words) and principles.

I think we both believe that persons should be respected - in "the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” - even though "happiness" isn't in the Constitution, it is in the Declaration. I think this means, leave us alone. Which carries into the states, and by tradition as well, into all areas of our society.

As for principles, I mean the traditions and virtues historically recognized as American, often protected by law. I have, as you suggest, looked in the mirror, and what I see is an old man initiated from youth in the moral values of my country, America. My first 19-years of life were spent on the ranch. American moral and civic ideals were taught at every level of education, in every public and private school in the nation. Our glorious history was taught unambiguously, truthfully and proudly. The dark parts of our history were not eliminated, they were explained. For example, the union forced the south to end slavery, at the price of 600,000 deaths. After decades of twisted American history textbooks by Howard Zinn, most millennials now have no credible knowledge of our nation's history.

Is LGBT a religion? You don't need an "unchangeable holy book" to create a religion. This is a widely diffuse group of people with a core spiritual base and rituals, such as "same sex marriage". It is closely affiliated with numerous religious organizations.

But the point is this: Our national public schools are not stages for the indoctrination of just any philosophy or religion. The normal limits of teaching authority have been greatly violated without parental permission. Should "advocacy groups" be exempt? How about Marxists groups, or Antifa? Black Lives Matter groups are admittedly Marxist, and anti-family, why are they OK? Again, how about Scientology (see: “Going Clear"). Is morality ever an issue? Whoever comes to speak at our schools is also coming to teach whatever happens to be in their bag of ideas. Scientology, Marxism, and LGBTQIA+whatever, are rarely parent-approved, and school boards who approve of these things should be ousted. Bottom line here: don't indoctrinate our children with your pet religious and political philosophies!

I was unfamiliar with your Deuteronomy passage, but you fail to mention that the woman is punished for "... seizing him by the private parts...". Christians have never taught this, as many other historical facts. There was one church for 1,500 years, until the 15th Century, now there are over 40,000. What's your point? There are also more than 300 religions in the world. So what? The evil of slavery has plagued the world since shortly after the Fall. Since this has long been recognized as evil, so, again, "what" to your argument? Religions and religious practitioners have never been perfect (except for Jesus Christ) - because of our free will - but for Christians there is a golden standard, the 10 Commandments.

Your mere "humanity", from a practical standpoint, is meaningless against others, totalitarian atheist, Communist and Muslim. A person may pretend he or she has "transgendered" to the opposite sex, and their friends may cheer, but when the man behind the curtain is exposed as a fraud, nothing has changed. The "Y" chromosome remains in command.
Thank God!

*****

Next: Is Critical Race Theory -- acidicly, critically, racist?

How did this brain-dead theory suddenly come to dominate our school system? Why should we be impressed with this theory, composed by a coterie of wannabe social engineering geniuses.

Why should American citizens want to embrace this eccentric idea? Even some true geniuses have given us a number of theoretical flops, but we didn't design our entire system of learning to satisfy them. Here are a few of the " Most Famous Scientific Theories That Were Later Debunked”: 1- Fleischmann–Pons's Nuclear Fusion. 2- Phrenology.3- The Blank Slate. 4- Luminiferous Aether. 5- Einstein's Static (or Stationary) Universe. 6- Martian Canals.7- Phlogiston Theory. 8- The Expanding or Growing Earth." There's even a theory of transgendering out there.

If Einstein got it wrong after much study, why should we be so credulous to accept this destructive, amateur-hour theory?

This is another issue critical to national welfare. We have to ask, "who’s running the show?"

Some more opinion on this issue next week.

 


 

This is an unusual week for this column. While I would like to respond to both of the letters I received (Mary Scoles' "Second Opinion", and Scott Duckett's) it's late (11:00p.m.) and I also have to defend Annette Sula's letter from last week. Starting my column late has become a bad habit which I will try to correct.

If I stay strictly to the core of these three opinions the conclusion will be shorter. The issue (as I see it) is: Should special public recognition be given to promote LGBT philosophy, using public property, facilities, and funding, be recognized as lawful? The question is both Constitutional and religious. This is an urgent national issue.

I've already stated, I agree with Annette Sula's opposition to public expressions of "LGBTQAI+ at taxpayer's expense, and the exposure of this quasi-religion to schoolchildren. LGBT is a highly emotional fraudulent contention. Sula claims that the City Council's official proclamation of Pride Month, in connection with the "LGBTQAI+ Pride Resource Fair", was wrong and possibly unconstitutional as (my words) an establishment of religion. I'm not a lawyer, just wondering if the same treatment would be given to L. Ron. Hubbard's Scientology? To most Christians, these mutually bizarre teachings smack of religion (Hubbard's recognized, federally) - which cannot be "established" with government money.

This new "theology" of the body (transgendering) is contrary to all known legitimate science, and irreconcilable to most Christian and non-Christian religious systems. Even if constitutional in itself, it's repugnant to Christian citizens attempting to educate their children in public schools. To include this belief system in our public school curriculum is far beyond the scope of academic authority. As I suggested, why not do the same for Scientology? Both are backed by billions of corporate dollars. Make no mistake, LGBT is BIG business.

This belief in so-called trans-gendering is anathema to more than 4,000-years of Judeo-Christian tradition, and an embarrassment on steroids to real science. I'm sorry if this revelation hurts the feelings of hopeful believers, but most educated Christian observers understand this same sex phenomenon to be an opportunity, and excuse, for condemned, unnatural cultic sexual practices. Not my opinion only; let's look at the Book:

"The Bible defines marriage in Genesis 2:24 as a union between one man and one woman. Jesus Christ upholds this definition of marriage in Matthew 19:5, as does the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 5:31. Any and all sexual activity which takes place outside of this context is treated as sinful, what Jesus calls ‘sexual immorality’ in Mark 7:21." See also: Romans 1:24–32.

So, objections to celebrating "LGBTQAI+" at any level, are based upon Constitutional grounds (leave it to the lawyers) but primarily as threats to the religious education of our children. The purpose and practices of this group are diametrically opposed to traditional Christian beliefs. Christian parents believe that their children, influenced to became sympathetic to this movement, would be threatened with eternal condemnation. "LGBTQAI+" is fundamentally opposed to the teachings of eternal salvation, and Christian parents insist otherwise. Parents have the God-given right (and duty) to be the primary teachers of their children.

I understand Christian beliefs are not fashionable today because so many no longer believe in God. But most Americans do believe in God. They point-out (for example) Psalm 14:1 NKJV- "The fool Says, There is No God." And, I don't know any 125-year-old living person - we must all die. Worldly atheism in the face of eternity is just pitiful. Catholics (among others) believe in the last 4 things: death, judgment, Heaven and Hell. To chose atheism over Christianity is a fearfully serious decision. I plead again that I'm not a preacher, but the subject of religion here is unavoidable. LGBTQAI+ influence cannot escape religion as part of the argument, and hundreds of millions of Christian believers will fight against this fanciful, pseudo religious nonsense. Preachers of the transgender faith should be what they want to be on their own time and on their own dime - but leave my children alone! It's your precious First Amendment Right to preach. But I will not pay for your message, nor expose my children to it, for the same reason I will not become a Scientologist. This religious intrusion into our schools amounts to psychological child endangerment.

Pro- LGBTQAI+ members will quickly protest "We don't believe in your God, or His commandments." The fact remains this whole group amounts to less than 2-percent of the American population, which is mostly Christian. When a sexual-social organization seeks to "Honor" itself with an especially designated month, it has a duty to explain, in detail, what it is about, not just refer the public to some website. The "Fillmore annual Christmas parade" has nothing to do with sodomy, contrary to the same-sex group you applaud. Would our City Council also approve a special day honoring the infamous NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association? Apparently, few organizations have escaped the stain of sodomy and pedophilia: Pope Alexander VI (Papacy began: 11 August 1492 - the worst). Today: "Homosexualist Jesuit Fr. James Martin is the public face of sodomy acceptance and promotion in the United States. The word "sodomy" is carefully chosen and accurate. While Martin and his ilk use the nebulous and always-changing term LGBT, the sin of sodomy is truly what he's seeking to normalize." The fight goes on.

About that "G" rating: In the words of the Motion Picture Association, G is for General Audiences — all ages admitted, meaning there is nothing in theme, language, nudity, sex, violence or other matters that the ratings board thinks would offend parents whose younger children view the picture."

The great difference here is the fact that while the children cannot participate in the LGBT lifestyle on screen, the Fair, etc., seeks to entice them to believe abnormal lifestyles are normal, which is wholly deceptive. Would the LGBT community reduce "bullying" if they avoided flaunting their often bizarre appearance? Why not simply punish the bullies? If "transgendering" is a private matter, why seek to publicize? This is truly social engineering at the most sinister level of pseudo science.

There may be "many different gender identities" according to LGBT group think - but not according to real science. Being left-handed is a quaint metaphor here, especially since many famous men were so inflicted - like President Obama. Hardly a handicap. I don't recall any incident disrespecting lefties. Aristotle, Napoleon and baseball legend Babe Ruth were all lefties. Cheer-up. Things have improved - except for threats to the spiritual-sexual welfare of children, due to LGBT exposure. Should the normal 98-percent suffer for the less than 2-percent "intrinsically disordered?"

For anti-LGBT parents, this is a spiritual fight, and a thing worth dying for.

 


 

The Gazette welcomes all points of view, especially those which disagree with my own. No one will ever be "canceled" on this platform. (Publisher's promise)

****************************************************************************

First, a quick acknowledgement of Annette Sula's letter to the editor.
Thank you, Annette for your thoughtful opinion. This is a good time for me to reiterate the strong commitment the Gazette has to exercising its First Amendment Constitutional right to free expression. I agree entirely with you.

****************************************************************************

I'm told it's bad form to begin with an apology, but my conscience is tugging at me.
Last week I gave everyone the bird -- the wrong bird. I don't know what I was thinking about as I ended the column, but I now confess it is the "Phoenix" bird of historical acclaim, not the "Venus Bird" that will arise from the ashes to announce Trump's triumphal return.

A response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion".

Hello again Kelly.
All I can say about Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Tx) and his perception of astronomical extravaganzas is, he must have seen something on late-night CNN. I would encourage him to stick with FOX. And that's all I have to say about that.

I regret that you were disappointed about my "niggle" of Pete Buttigieg's name. But let's get real. The name of this column has been "Realities" for about 35-years (three, out of town). But I'm due some credit for refraining from other, more biting metaphors. Come-on man. He identifies as another man's wife. As such, a pretend marriage deserves a pretend pregnancy, which deserves a pretend caution. When pretend husband urges pretend wife Pete to push, don't forget the diaper for that pretend delivery! As our new Transportation Secretary, he's also a member of the Cabinet of the United States and is fourteenth in the presidential line of succession (big jump from Mayor of South Bend). But I'm convinced that, as second in succession, Kamala will be sufficiently calamitous to save Pete any anxiety about even higher responsibilities. Let's remember, we're trying to talk realities here, not pretending.

Rational people understand that pretention in national defense is an absolutely deadly mistake. Once our very reality-based, blood-thirsty, Godless enemies discover we use pretend parts in our defense system, they will attack. The Russians and Chinese know very well where the US pretend-defensive parts are -- missile for missile, ship for ship, fighter for fighter, and sub for sub. They see that "We have been weighed and found wanting". They know that our nuclear subs now lack spare parts! Worst of all, they know we have no leader; Xi, and Putin, know Biden too well, and savor only the strongest contempt for him. They know the totally corrupt Biden family, because they have facilitated that corruption for decades. (Proof? See: Bobulinski interview). And a perfectly conforming Second-in-Command, Kamala, renowned aging political floozy, is prepositioned for us by a wholly corrupt Big Tech, in collaboration with the Democratic Party, to somehow reassure us?
Conspiracies can be huge, but the idea is very simple: "a combination of two or more persons to commit a criminal act, or their legal act committed by criminal means." Treason is the "Original Sin" among Constitutional crimes. Pogo's quip (take-off from Admiral Perry) "We have met the enemy and they are us" is now painfully obvious.

Yes, I know, it's a bit much to perceive, but that behemoth ship of state is changing course, from Republic to socialist-globalist. At this point we should believe our "lying eyes," they're not pretending.

We learned today that approximately 30 Russian warships are practicing how to sink an aircraft carrier -- 30 miles off the coast of Hawaii. That's only 4-miles west of Catalina using our homeland boarder as reference. They're a long way from home. Blatant provocation; has never happened before. Could they be preparing Fourth of July fireworks for us? Probably not. They're there to demonstrate their contempt for our present military weakness and leadership. The Russians may think, "Why not scoot into Pearl Harbor, just like we moved into the Crimea Peninsula; what can they do about it?" Maybe the Chinese Navy would join them (it's now larger than ours).

Remember that peaceful Sunday morning of December 7, 1941 (I was 3-years-old) when swarms of fighter-bombers from the Empire of Japan, and midget submarines, destroyed our Pacific Fleet (except for a few carriers)? It was an undeclared act of war -- much like an undeclared biological attack would be.

Would they dare even think of doing this if Trump were still at the helm?

Got to end this, Kelly.

On election: Republicans only want secure elections -- no more fraud -- need voter ID. Never heard of Juneteenth before. Should be Texas exclusive. "Biden European visit and G-7", just more obvious contempt for the "president" from all on enemies list. Putin "A steely-eyed Fred Astaire "Putin on the Ritz"?” Gets an "A" for creativity, an "F" for reality recognition.

I'm not a gambler, but sadly, in a showdown today (right now) I would give odds to the enemy, 51 to 49 percent. Maybe trans-genderism can strengthen us?

Perhaps years of abandoning traditional Judeo-Christian virtues have made Americans too stupid to appreciate the clear and president dangers of Communism. Russia and China are very clear about their hostile intentions against America - they plan to end us.

Where is the heroic virtue of 1941?

 

A response to Kelly Scoles "Second Opinion".

Hi Kelly,
I think I could make more sense of most of your opinion this week if I had read it backwards. I appreciate the humor but remain a little confused about a lot of the rest.

Of course, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) was joking. But I would believe this possibility sooner than I would believe Vice President Harris will preserve national prosperity and security when she becomes president. Putin and Xi are licking their chops. The rest of us should learn how to duck and cover again.

You say, "We are decades into [computer] technology" hoping this (voting irregularities) will be fixed as part of the "infrastructure". Trump is correct in believing the paper ballot is much safer than (Dominion-type) computers. The simple paper ballot is free from corrupt algorithms or shifty decimals, which preordain the outcome. Slower -- so what? However, we would still have to guard against those nocturnal dump truck loads of fake ballots. But your "man" Buttigieg couldn't find a solution if it bit him on the butt.

As to that infamous Jan. 6 "insurrection", you say "there was no video of it anywhere". One of the hottest issues remains the fact that the DOJ refuses to release hundreds of hours of video footage and stills of the entire incident, this because they show substantial cordiality between rioters and police. This Capitol event was over in 4 hours (2:11 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.). "Congress reconvened to resume counting Electoral College votes at 8 p.m.". One woman was shot and killed by a (negligent) Capitol Police Officer. No civilian firearms or knives were discovered in the Capitol. No fires were started. No statuary was damaged. No deadly combat. Again, the incident lasted 4 hours -- time even to relax in the Speaker's own lounge chair. Few serious charges. Some "insurrection"!

The real scandal here is the fact that hundreds of accused participants in this incident have been jailed since that time, some in solitary confinement. So much for a speedy trial. How many BLM rioters have been charged after months of true, deadly insurrection?

As for Benghazi: this was a criminal catastrophe of extraordinary proportions with principals never brought to justice - as usual for Democrats. Remember the heroes who were betrayed, killed, and forgotten. Thanks, lying Hillary.

Joe Manchin is the lynchpin keeping the Republic's wheels rolling safely along. I pray that he remains steeled in his conviction to halt un-American conspiratorial legislation. I have to wonder, Kelly, why you would spoil your tenaciously wrong-headed opinions here by adding absolutely loony ones? Case in point: "Waiting for Godot". But, on the other hand, maybe this fits here, being part of that "Theatre of the Absurd". Beckett won fame with his nihilist "Gadot". That character, Gadot (Beckett's play), thought the world was senseless, meaningless. Joe Manchin is just the opposite. Right now, he's a true hero for stopping the power-crazy Democrats, because the world is meaningful. Like Beckett's plays, Democrats to me are usually depressing - and wrong.

Good grief! You even threw in "smug and glossy Caitlyn Jenner", getting into Republican politics. I'm stopped cold here. My opinion? I'm saddened. "Jenner [the Bruce] became the men's champion in the American decathlon event in 1974, and also broke world records during the American Olympic trials that year. In 1976, Jenner won the gold medal in Montreal with a stunning display".

Nothing new here: "The Y chromosome contains the "male-determining gene." No one can persuade me to pretend in (factual) trans-gendering. Even before the bioscience, comes my Christian faith. And I really wonder if he (Jenner) misses that manhood that brought him so much fame in his youth.

Lastly, "Relicans" are anything but afraid of Trump. You shouldn't be laughing out loud about a Trump return. More than 70-million voters are determined to see this happen. Excuse the drama if I see the Biden-Harris administration creating the flames and ashes from which the Trump Venus Bird will arise - or, maybe it'll be a Pelican!

 

Response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion"

Hi again, Kelly.
I'm fairly certain, after reading your latest "Golden Bull" opinion, that you are a Never-Trumper. Despite the growing expression of buyers' remorse among your Biden cohorts, I hope you will not remain among the invincibly prejudiced after Republicans sweep the House and Senate next year - and everything in 2024.

Unless the leftist Democratic Party is truly mad, the damage that the Biden cabal will have done to our nation by that time will be so extensive, and obvious, that only lunatics will continue to support anything smelling of the Biden touch. This, because he is deliberately disassembling every good thing Trump accomplished; the statistical record is too long to repeat here, but here are a few easy to check Trump triumphs:

Unprecedented Economic Boom (Before the China Virus invaded our shores, built the world’s most prosperous economy.) Achieved a Secure Border; Remade the Federal Judiciary; Established American Energy Independence; Made Communities Safer (signed into law landmark criminal justice reform.); Cherished Life and Religious Liberty; Expanded Educational Opportunity; Combated the Opioid Crisis; Tax Relief for the Middle Class; Massive Deregulation; Fair and Reciprocal Trade; Life-Saving Response to the China Virus; Restored American Leadership Abroad; Colossal Rebuilding of the Military; Served and Protected Our Veterans; Unemployment rates for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Veterans, Individuals with disabilities, and those without a high school diploma all reached record lows. Poverty rates for African Americans and Hispanic Americans reached record lows. Unemployment for women hit its lowest rate in nearly 70 years.

And made our enemies understand that he is a serious man of his word, to be respected.

Now - watch as each of these achievements is sabotaged. The Biden cabal, in its maniacal determination to cancel its nemesis Donald Trump, and cover all of his success, seeks a return to failure--politically, economically, defensively, and spiritually.

Your criticism of Trump's alleged "...assaults on democracy, and voter suppression..." is curiously inverted. Clearly, the Democratic Party hates our Constitution as our highest law and protector of our Republic against those who seek to distort its purpose. Having recently experienced the greatest fraudulent attack on our election system, by Democrats, Republicans are not anxious to have it happen again. We seek, not voter suppression as you suggest, but fraud-free elections through common sense precautions such as voter ID. Also, we believe that a "...authoritarian-religious state” is not necessarily "historically disastrous", provided that state's authority is Constitutionally valid, and its religious rights preserved Constitutionally as well.

You say "Democracy cannot endure such a betrayal of basic principles" but I believe that as long as our laws agree with the original meaning of our Constitution, and judges understand and adhere to it, we're OK. This idea of a growing Constitution has been hotly debated for at least 50 years, but there's no room for discussing that here.

You mention Trump's alleged lack of compassion towards Puerto Rico. I don't see that, but let's see what Biden does. By the way, let's not forget what the Clintons did to Haiti: "Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State and Mr. Clinton was UN Special Envoy to Haiti when the January 2010 earthquake struck, killing an estimated 220,000 people.” The Clintons did help -- they helped themselves to tens of millions in relief money.

Your historical assessment of Donald Trump's presidential achievements is inaccurate and unfair. No other president in American history accomplished as much as he did during four years in office. Our ancestors came here to be free of kings, for sure. Can't see where cardinals had anything to do with it.

Kelly, like so many other Never-Trumpers, your hatred of Donald Trump has blinded you to the reality of his historic achievements.

 

Response to Kelly Scoles' Second Opinion.

Hi Kelly,
The central issue in the dispute between Republicans and Democrats about creating a commission to study the mislabeled Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol "insurrection" is "purpose". Dems want to focus with a jeweler's eye on hours before, during, and after the Capitol trespass. Republicans search for truth by examining the broader causes, including the months of billion-dollar murder, mayhem, and arson (true insurrection). They see this activity as part of a sophisticated criminal conspiracy to steal President Trump's landslide electoral victory. An admission of this Leftist-Dem conspiracy is spelled-out in a Time Magazine expose' - "The shadow campaign that took place during the 2020 election...", here's how it was done, Feb 5, 2021. It was executed by the usual suspects, who easily foresaw the entire scenario from the first match struck in Minneapolis to the latest window smashed in Seattle. In scale, this was supremely unprecedented in American history, our nation's most noxious betrayal, for a handful of trillions and a lock on democracy.

George Floyd became an afterthought - but a useful facilitator for riots, like a half-dozen previous police-shooting causalities, resulting from failures to comply. From Trayvon Martin (2012) and Michael Brown (2014). The Michael Brown shooting (I clearly remember) was a flawless, justified arrest, and self-defense shooting; reports were quickly falsified and commercialized ("Hands-up, don't shoot") and a good officer defamed and discharged. St. Louis County "grand jury could not confirm those testimonies”. And "a recently released Department of Justice investigative report concluded the same" false testimony. This scenario was a big lie.

This Jan. 6 commission attempt failed, but both sides still want to expose facts leading to the origins of the Capitol attack - the proximate cause. Not Trump, say Republicans, it's all Trump's fault, say Democrats. But by Jan. 6, the story was already more than a year old. To recall the origins of the murderous determination fueling this Leftist atmosphere we must go back to the 2017 shooting that nearly killed congressman Steve Scalise, now the No. 2 House Republican, during a practice at a baseball field. It was Never-Trump mania.

All of this high-octane political hate has attracted the people who are "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" - without its permission - through the auspices of terrorist groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and its global cash cows. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is now very rich thanks to George Soros and his billionaire buddies. BLM raised $90million last year. You are ignorant of BLM's identity until you read about its hatred for the nuclear family, religion, and democracy - and its love for communism.

Considering the fact that more than 100,000 people attended the Capitol rally (outside) and a few hundred entered the Capitol building, I would call this behavior riot-light. "Two civilians who died during the violent Jan. 6 insurrection [outside the] U.S. Capitol died of natural causes, and a third succumbed to amphetamine intoxication, according to the D.C. medical examiner’s office." "A fourth person, 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by a [negligent] Capitol police officer inside the Capitol..." "The cause of death for a fifth person, Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who collapsed after confronting rioters and died Jan. 7, [at home] remains pending."

Let's compare the "Summer of Love" riots: "By the end of June (2020), at least 14,000 people had been arrested and, by November 2020, 25 people had died in relation to the unrest". "Thousands of businesses and properties, many minority-owned, were looted, torched, or otherwise vandalized. New reporting from Axios reveals that the total insured property losses incurred during the George Floyd riots will come in at $1 billion to $2 billion." How many minority-owned businesses were uninsured? Do Black Lives really matter to BLM?

The attack upon the Capitol was completely unlawful, as was the election theft. Capitol security unpreparedness, local, state, federal, and military evidences criminal negligence. No firearms were found in the Capitol. No statuary was damaged. No fires were set. No Congressmen were harmed. Video shows Capitol Police were often friendly to invaders, ushering them through outside barriers. Windows were broken, desks were disturbed, and someone lounged in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's chair.
FBI and other police agencies still refuse to show hundreds of hours of video - because they show an embarrassing amount of civility within the Capital "insurrection" and a lackadaisical attitude towards Capital security.

And -¬- the fraudulent electoral vote count continued.

 

A response to Kelly Scoles "Second Opinion".

Hi Kelly.
You raise two great issues. First, what determines a right to territory (property), and second, when is there a right to defend that land with deadly force? It's a "Might Makes Right" situation. No country in history has been able to avoid these challenges.

The problem is to determine whether the Jewish nation of Israel, or Arab occupied "Palestine" should be in control. ("The– concept of the Palestine region and its geographical extent has varied throughout history, it is now considered to be composed by the modern State of Israel, the West Bank, Golan Heights, and the Gaza Strip.") In the Arab-Israeli wars, of 1948–49, 1956, 1967, 1973, 1982, and 2006, Israel was victorious. These were defensive wars, and Israel is entitled to claim the "spoils", West Bank and Golan Heights. "The United States recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel through a presidential proclamation signed by U.S. President Donald Trump on March 25, 2019."

The "Palestinians" (including Hamas terrorists) claim all of the territory of Israel, and reject Israel's right to exist - thus suicide bombing and Intifada murders.

At the center of this millennia-long bloodshed is the issue of religions, Judaism v. Islam. Islam is a difficult neighbor to befriend since it demands "submission" to Islam of all non-Islamic people. Islam is an Arabic word meaning "submission", which gives all non-Islamic people three choices: converting to Islam, becoming a "dhimmi" slave, or death. Islam demands submission of the entire world. So, if you're not inclined to become Muslim, a slave, or having your head cut off, sharing your land with your Muslim neighbor is problematic.

Moving into territory inhabited by people of a different culture or religion has been dangerous since Noah divvied-up the south 40. Was Julius Caesar wrong to expand his empire by fighting all those "barbarian" tribes? How about Alexander the Great, his huge empire was built by the sword. Should Columbus have stayed away from his "New World"? Should the Spanish Conquistadors have ignored Aztec human sacrifice and cannibalism? "Spanish historian Fray Diego de Durán reported that 80,400 men, women and children were sacrificed for the inauguration of the Templo Mayor under a previous Aztec emperor...." And, how ethical was the creation of the gigantic English Empire? Should the Stone Age tribes in North and South America have been left alone? North Americans had not yet discovered the wheel. Despite their historically persistent extramural wars, has their later suffering and conflict with the West not ultimately benefited them immeasurably? Even today, how about China and its unchallenged torture and enslavement of millions of Xinjiang Uyghurs?

Post WWI Western powers failed in their moral obligation to structure the (Islamic) Ottoman Empire leftovers, (which previously annihilated millions of "Kaffirs") forcing the rest to flee their homes in the Christian Byzantine Empire.
Let's look at our own already-occupied country. Do billions of the world's immigrants have the "right" to unlawfully flood across our border without permission? If so, then how many millions? Then again, how many more millions? The citizens of this country did not permit this invasion - but demands will be made for us to pay for the entire move - for generations.

But let's return to the "Palestinians". Your suspicion that I am "selective" in saying that "historical presence in a location (i.e. Jews in Israel) entitles "exclusive occupation" is partly true. But, "Historical presence" is a factor, and Israel's claim is unique. Israel permits (Arab) Muslim members in its Knesset. Can't find many Jews in the Palestinian Authority.

Finally, you ask, "So what rights do we [Palestinians] as current occupants, have?” I would ask in return, how many terrorists would you accept in your neighborhood who plan to see you dead? For this is the central, religious, question - to Jihad or not to Jihad. "The Sharia (law) is the basis for mandating the religious, political and cultural life of all Muslims." This hasn't changed for the past 14 centuries, and commands Jihad. Time for Arabs in Syria and Jordan to welcome their brothers in faith, to separate from Israel, like nitro from glycerin. Islam, by self-admission, is incompatible with all other religions.

If you are going to buy into the proposed two-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, I would strongly urge "caveat emptor" - let the buyer beware.

 

First, I would like to thank David Johnson for his summary of an article by Gerry Giesler from the Epoch Times. Epoch Times is excellent.

The Gazette welcomes all points of view, especially those which disagree with my own. No one will ever be "canceled" on this platform.

Hello again Kelly.
You're right about it being "impossible to relate the problems of Israel and Palestine if [you] had 1000 times the space allotted here...". It's a religious knot of Gordian design tied by Muslim believers more than a thousand years ago. Muhammad revealed a religion unlike any other, until Communism was concocted by Marx. Both religions are determined to enslave the world; Islam offers three choices: conversion, submission as dhimmi (slave status), paying the (jizya) tax, or death. Islam is wholly infused with the obligation of Jihad. "All four principal Sunni schools agree on the importance of jihad. Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani (d. 996), a Maliki jurist declared": "They [kafirs and unbelievers] have the alternative of either converting to Islam or paying the poll tax (jizya), short of which war [death] will be declared against them. Jihad is an elemental part of Islam, and it is especially designed to fight Christians and Jews."

There has never been a shortage of people determined to rule the world, always through the brute force of superior military power. Often the idea driving these wannabe gods is designed by other delusional, self-proclaimed geniuses. Whether Genghis Khan with his Mongol empire (don't know who inspired Genghis), Julius Caesar, the Abbasid Caliphate, Hitler's National Socialist German Workers' Party - (Nazi), the Chinese Yuan Dynasty, or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR),these folks all suffered from psychopathic god complexes.

But two players remain in our bruised world, Communism and Islamism, - one very young (1917) and another very old (632a.d.) - both betting their future (and everyone else's) that they will soon own us all, like hapless Uighurs or extras from "I, ROBOT."

It's going to be messy, when Mr. Putin, Mr. Xi, and Mr. Rouhani, are embarrassed to discover that they are not gods - that they must also die and be replaced by the next god-trainee manifesting big ideas, parading his troops with clogging precision, flashy new uniforms and the latest weapons. He will boast of his faster-than-light missiles and invisible planes. He will swagger on stage before his chosen, thousand-man congress, like a stiff-jawed Mussolini of old, flexing his power, his hegemony. And his masses will kowtow in return. It's a most ancient scenario.

But I digress.

You have given a short history of Israel and its inspiring accomplishments. But when I think of Israel today standing almost alone against an anti-Semitic world, with America's foreign policy now in the hands of an utterly corrupt "president", scheming with the far-left communist Democratic Party to hurt Israel by supporting her ancient enemies, I think of the Bible, 2Maccabees 7. I think of the woman with seven sons, arrested with her, and forced to eat pork to show respect for the king, Antiochus IV Epiphanes. "When they refused, he tortured and killed the sons one by one in front of the unflinching and stout-hearted mother." Yes, I'm prejudiced here. I have deep respect for Israel, and the same for Benjamin Netanyahu. It is a mistake to attack this "stiff-necked" people.

Yes, the Palestinians have rights which must be respected, once they have removed the army of Hamas terrorists that call the shots. I think war is most bitterly fought when religion is the central issue. Since the year 632 a.d. (Muhammad's death) Islam's sworn intention has been to convert, enslave, or kill, (in particular) people "of the Book", that is Jews and Christians. This is a principal tenet of Islam for 13 centuries, demanded by their sacred books, the Qu'ran and Hadith. There is nothing like this in Judaism.

The (Arab) Palestinians have lived in the area of Palestine for about 100 years. "The Palestinian Jews lived in the land of Palestine since 135 CE when Rome changed the name from Judea to Palestine (it was NOT a country after Israel was defeated and only became a country again when it was returned to the Jewish people. There has NEVER been a country by the name of “Palestine”). Thereby, the term only applied to Jews for 2,000 years. Only the Jews who battled with Rome were expelled from Jerusalem, while many remained. The Romans never expelled the Jews from all of Judea."

Jumping forwards a few thousand years, into this most recent "war" in Israel, even the fetid voices of the radical Leftist media have documented the fact that Hamas initiated the unprovoked missile attack into civilian populated areas of Israel. Israel is responding in self-defense.

Cutting this thing short, (got off track) I can "...condemn only the Palestinians" because in this conflict it was "only the Palestinians" who began the fight with their missile attacks - by the thousands. As rational people, how else should the Israelis have acted? I look to history for an answer.

 

My response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion"

Hi Kelly,
I think I can agree with your definition of a fact. The question remains: are claims of systemic election fraud factual? Some people are nauseated by continued arguments on this issue. That's too bad because this issue is key to the continued existence of the American Republic, and that's a fact. Especially during these menacing times, the character of the person entrusted with the powers of the presidency will determine the fate of the nation. If he (she) is known to be strong and fearless America will continue to enjoy peace and prosperity. If that person is weak and corrupt our enemies will attack. Actually they (China) began attacking several years ago; we're like that half-cooked frog in the pot. China is so confident of obtaining world dominance it no longer hides its strategy. The US is so slow to counter even obvious threats and attacks (Taiwan, South China Sea, new military build-up, the China Virus) we face a strategic checkmate, and may hear that word in Mandarin before Biden's final blunder.

Just look at the immediate, tragical aftermath of the Joe Biden Pretendancy (in months). His stack of executive orders has quickly ended our energy independence and destroyed all control at the border. With approximately 200,000 illegal aliens flooding across an open border now (per month) taxpayers will foot the bill for food, shelter, education, medical aid, and police activity, for each person until age 18; hundreds of billions, and just beginning. Biden has corrupted our sovereignty.

If Donald Trump won in a (stolen) landslide, all of these problems would not exist. As everyone is fond of saying these days, elections have consequences, and many of these consequences can be utterly deadly, as we are beginning to see.

But just what are the "facts" presented here, evidencing massive, systemic election fraud?

First, let me ask, what sort of evidence would satisfy you as a reasonable, intelligent, and honest person, that the election was fraudulent? How about mathematical evidence? What about engineering evidence? Or, ballot count evidence, or, sworn, eye-witness affidavits (thousands), or ballot dumping, fraudulent ballots, ballot counting machines (Dominion). Name a type of evidence you would accept, and I can easily provide it.

But it should be noted, though much of this evidence was presented to state and federal courts, no actual hearing was allowed; often the court-maintained plaintiff was too early, too late, or lacked standing - all questionable procedural objections.

Check these sites (most recent) May 8, 2021; New Census data raise serious questions about 2020 election fraud. By Thomas Lifson, American Thinker. A guide to understanding election fraud in 2020 By Andrea Widburg 11-13-2020. " The huge numbers, though, occur when the ballots get fed into computers. The primary computer systems used in America — Dominion and ES&S — are vulnerable to hacking, and their information is poorly secured (and, in the case of ES&S, runs through Europe and Russia). Additionally, Dominion systems have a built-in program that can automatically add a multiplier to a candidate. (For example, it could multiply every Biden vote by 1.5, increasing his count by 50%.)"

By Jay Valentine "United States voter fraud is a nationwide crime perpetrated locally, mostly by Democrats. Republicans either do not do it or when they do, they get caught. It is no coincidence that only Democrats fight voter ID laws, ballot audits in Maricopa County, and investigations in New Hampshire. This month Matt Braynard, Trump’s data guy, issued a comprehensive report on Georgia voter fraud. Read it? If you did, you are the eleventh person after friends and family." See also Jovan Pulitzer, Dec. 31, 2020, video from testimony at Georgia state Senate.

Detailed analysis of the fraud conspiracy - machines, software, ballot manipulation, foreign tabulation, and timing.

"The purpose of this forensic audit is to test the integrity of Dominion Voting System in how it performed in Antrim County, Michigan for the 2020 election. 2. We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified." And...

There is significant evidence that the 2020 election is one of the largest industrial frauds to take place in the history of the world.”

And... Navid Keshavarz-Nia, PhD.: "In my expert judgment, the evidence is widespread and throughout all battleground states I have studied. I conclude the following: a. The vote count distribution in PA, WI, MI, AZ, NV, and GA are not based on normal system operation. Instead, they are caused by fraudulent electronic manipulation of the targeted voting machines. The unanimous decision to intentionally stop counting by all five battleground states is highly unusual, possibly unprecedented and demonstrates prior coordination by election officials in battleground states."

Kelly, I've been through proof of fraud too many times. Much of this information is from my Realities of December, 2020. The evidence of fraud is there for anyone interested in seeing for themselves. But Americans are too easily bored, tired even of terminal threats. I found a scientific term describing what I call the Biden effect, vis-à-vis China, "A global catastrophic risk..." "A Potential global catastrophic [risk] includes anthropogenic risks, caused by humans (technology, governance, ... Those that will affect all future generations and are "terminal" (meaning that they cause a complete end to the object ..." Sounds a little scary doesn't it. The fragility of existing American security defense against Communist China can be demonstrated by the recent (continuing?) pipeline attack: "Gas Pipeline Hack Leads to Panic Buying in the Southeast ...
https://www.nytimes.com › 2021/05/11 › business › colon..." "19 hours ago... Southeast on Tuesday, leaving thousands of stations without gasoline as a vital fuel pipeline remained largely shut down after a ransomware attack." This is a preview of coming events - watch China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran emerge like lean, armored cicadas, to feast on our unattended republic.

Yes, I know, China isn't blamed here. But this is further evidence of the pathetic weakness which Biden's "Pretendancy" is dangling before our very hungry enemies. And, again, yeah, I know this all sounds too paranoid for liberal ears. But remember, paranoia is defined as an irrational fear. All this stuff about alleged election fraud has passed the scientific smell test, from mere allegation, to evidence, to proof of fact. But our Communist Chinese enemies don't give a damn about confused American political debates - debate under communism can get you killed.

Let's find a public forum large enough to display all evidence of fraud and have all deniers examine it, an enormous Show-and-Tell for those interested in understanding the scientific facts resulting from thorough scientific scrutiny of the evidence.

Please note the distinguished qualifications of the scientists I've cited who looked at the evidence, therefore the validity of their conclusions. As always, the challenge to you remains: Show us where we're wrong! You can't.

Joe Biden is an imposter.

 

A response to Kelly Scoles (Second Opinion).

Hi Kelly.
One great mystery that confounds conservatives dealing with liberals in general is the difference these groups have in understanding a set of facts. It's not just the difference in deciding the good from the bad, it's recognizing the real from the unreal - the realities. Liberals use a strange logic. I think that's why I named this column "Realities" 35-years ago, attempting to separate fact from fiction in political discussion.

I believe those who lie about history deserve extra duty in hell. This is not a personal attack on you, Mary, just a conviction distilled from many years of debating this earthly business. It has a lot to do with individual orientation, mine being Roman Catholic, despite its intrepid enemies. So, I don't pretend to be unbiased - my bias lies within Judeo-Christian doctrine, which respects the rule of law as long as that law doesn't violate Judeo-Christian teaching. This attitude is in complete accordance with American Constitutional law, which acknowledges God as the Giver of all our "unalienable" rights, our laws, with fairness a hallmark, and communism its enemy.

Forgive this distraction, but this all has to do with differences in logical "perception," differences between liberals and conservatives, how we interpret facts. For example, you say my disapproval of Democratic Party tactics is "ginned-up", which is to say "artificial", when I know it's truthful and well-founded. (Sorry for getting so philosophical but that's where we are.)

You say "...complete distrust of one of two political parties will destroy that democracy". It's not the "distrust" that's "destroying that democracy", it's leftist Democrats and their un-democratic tactics. This corruption is now so far along that perhaps unconventional action may be justified to set things straight again - a little like saving a kidnapped child.

You say "a certain level of trust in each other" [the parties] is required to maintain governmental normalcy. I agree, but that risky term "trust" can only work when rational, honest men agree to a truthful set of facts which justify that "trust". Those of us accustomed to living in a rich, free democratic-republican nation, are plagued by that deadly thing, naiveté, gullibility. We want to believe our communist and Islamic enemies desire the same western Judeo-Christian blessings as we do, like peace, justice, with our Constitutional (God-given) rights. But this is not true, it is a lie; they do not believe in these things. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea seek to overtake and/or destroy our government - they each proclaim this very persistently. Islam demands "submission or death" of all non-Islamic "Infidels". Jihad has been mandated since the year 632-a.d.

You denounce "billionaires, the religious right and anti-government militias" as part of the Trump base. If facts and truth are important, we have to admit, virtually all those billionaires are leftist Democrats. Do I have to list them? Start with the "Big Five" and we're talking trillions.

Compared to Democrat-affiliated (and sponsored) BLM, Antifa, et. al., all other "anti-government militias" are only a footnote in this conversation.

Again, we disagree on basic facts. You applaud Biden for his plan to "lift the middle class and poor population ...from stagnancy". Carl Rove shows that Biden actually intends to spend $10-TRILLION in new taxes, not six. Of course, we would have to borrow that money, from communist China.

Maybe we should ask: what would happen to America if a real emergency arose after squandering that money - like a real war! Elections certainly have consequences - but so does hyperinflation.

I heard some grumbling last week about my continued reference to the stolen election. Many years ago I ran to tell a homeowner that his house was on fire - garage fully involved. I was stunned by his calm response (I suspected insurance fraud). I'm watching the burning of our nation and I see election fraud. Evidence of fraud here is simply massive - but willfully ignored.

You find Trump's economic agenda a failure. Have you forgotten in such a short period of time that he created the greatest economic surge in American history? This, at every ethnic level (an undisputed fact). His plan included border control, and energy independence. Biden killed both.

Then, you mention the notorious January 6 "Capitol insurrection," again, a problem of separating the real from the unreal. This was no more than a politically facilitated rave. No fire, no killing (except for Capital police negligence) no firearms, short duration (4-5 hours) virtually no structural damage. Police calmly guided "rioteers" through the barriers. Few if any serious charges brought. Again, complete incompetence of FBI and Capital Police. Compare this to months of true, non-stop rioting, murder, mayhem, arson against innocent homeowners and shopkeepers, at loss of $2-BILLION, courtesy of BLM, and this so-called Capitol "insurrection" is a joke. Leftist (Democratic) governors and mayors aided and abated this felonious activity all summer long.

Your comments end with: "To give up is not an option." So, this "Relican" must carry on, to help prevent "the death of the Republic," and that's another fact.

 

It's late (11:00 p.m.). I'm running late, and I'm tired and just got started. (This is a planted excuse for a crappy column).

Welcome back Kelly Scoles (Second Opinion). Hope you're feeling better.

This is a tough letter you've given me this week; too many parts to deal with. I'll just go down the line and keep it short.

I think both you and Patti Walker (last week's letters) aggressively stated your opinions. Of course, being conservative, I agree with Sean Hannity and "Tucky" Tucker Carlson most of the time. I believe their opinions are correct and their facts valid. It's not hard to check them out, publicly. They are both traditional, Judeo-Christian conservatives and Donald Trump supporters, as I am.

Watching Joe Biden's frenzied activity during his first months in office is frightening proof of his being utterly controlled by Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. These two constitute the real US presidency now, wheeling our republic off a socialist cliff. In the face of unparalleled military threats from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, America has chosen two of the weakest, most unscrupulous individuals in US history to lead and defend us. This places America squarely into a political, military, economic, and moral crisis. The word "crisis" precisely applies now to all levels of government. Defense threats are imminent, with Russia poised and promising to invade Ukraine, again. China is threatening the same with Taiwan (which we are morally bound to assist militarily - by the Taiwan Relations Act). The act states that "the United States will make available to Taiwan such defense articles and defense services in such quantity as may be necessary to enable Taiwan to maintain sufficient self-defense capabilities"). China is beginning to block the South China Sea - an act of war - among many. North Korea is quietly building intercontinental missiles, with its Asian Bart Simpson saying, "I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything", yet! As for Iran, Biden is trying to resuscitate that deadly stupid Obama-Ali agreement, guaranteeing Iran's nuclear bomb-building ability in the near future. (Iran is the world's foremost provider of terrorism.) Bottom line: the US is about to decide whether to defend its allies or abandon them. China and Russia will force that decision.

The Biden administration is cutting the military budget, when we are at a weak point and our enemies are strutting their strategic capabilities. This year will suddenly tell the story of US weakness, before Republicans can recover power.

****

Here, I have to break off and say a few words about the belated ballot count in Arizona. As long as any Democrat Party members have anything to do with election ballot counting I have no confidence in a true and honest conclusion. Getting states to acknowledge the numerous proven methods to discover systemic fraud in the 2020 election is frustrating. Why not try this?:

Jovan Hutton Pulitzer claimed during the hearing before the [Georgia] Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Elections that he can audit ballots through a process called "kinematic artifact detection.[millions in a very short time]" Pattern Recognition Expert, Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, testifies on Georgia election fraud raw video...." Pulitzer's machine can definitively detect fraudulent ballots, by themselves, no need to examine those Dominion machines. As for the "three prior recounts" - the first was challenged as fraudulent, the next two were a recount of the same fraudulent batch. In other words, if the accurate ballot count was 1,000, but 10,000 were counted three times, we can't say the count was fair or accurate after repeating the same fraudulent count multiple times. This is where Mr. Pulitzer's machine would have shown massive fraud.

Why did all the kings' men on the Democrat side refuse this test, and any others?

So let the Arizona audit continue, and let the other states follow. Only the guilty party would object. Until that time, the man sitting in the Oval Office is an imposter, the product of a stupendously broad criminal conspiracy. He has been officially inaugurated to office (but the ceremony was fraudulent and he is a pretender to the office). No intelligent observer can dispute the multiple mathematical proofs of fraud, and those who think otherwise must overcome the challenge: "Show us where we are wrong!" We have shown the evidence and the proofs of fraud, thus says a long list of PhDs., from such distinguished places as MIT. There are no "sissy standards" here.

The Democratic Party has always had an aversion to the spotlight of truth. They fear a high level of scientific examination of ballots, just as they feared the carefully prepared proof of fraud that lawyer Sidney Powell repeatedly offered, unsuccessfully, seeking a hearing by several courts, including the Supreme Court.
Good night!

****

Good morning! I'll begin again.

It may sound a tad paranoid but we are now undergoing a broad transformation from a republican nation to a socialist-globalist one, then to communist.

Our schools are morally infected with anti-Judeo-Christian programs. Our Big Media are all but unanimously behind this socialist front. Big Business and unions are in league with Big Banks to push through the socialist agenda. Who's left to save our Republic and Constitution? Apparently only a flaccid Republican Party.

The Biden cabal is spending money faster than it can be printed - or borrowed from China. If not stopped, expect ruinous inflation.

Lastly, but really most immediately important, Biden has breached the dam at our southern border. Now more than 170,000 illegal aliens per month pour freely into our country. I watched a group lowered down the border fence at night a few days ago. When caught and asked their country of origin, the reply was "Ghana” (a West African country).

Joe Biden is sabotaging America's normal population balance to guarantee millions of new Democratic Party votes, creating perpetual Democratic Party dominance by a single-party electoral system. The end of our Republic.

Look for war, hyperinflation, morally confused student bodies, church degradation, a general abandonment of historical American moral values and economic stability, producing continuing social violence. A death of common sense.

Yeah, I know, it's a bit much.

 

And the crowds cheered when they heard: "Former Minneapolis police officer was convicted of murder and manslaughter and could be sent to prison for decades."

I watched the last hour of the defense presentation in the Derek Chauvin murder trial as well as a half-hour of the prosecution's rebuttal. I think the manslaughter conviction was correct but never thought that the defendant should have been charged with murder, due to a lack of specific intent. The state found the defendant's conduct sufficiently outrageous to reasonably imply the necessary intent for murder. Anyway, he will be going to prison for a long time.

It looks like George Floyd's arrest and handling was correct right to the time police officers failed to ease-up when he was no longer resisting. He was a big man, 6-foot 7, and resisting three officers at first. Nine minutes later he was dead. The video was hard to watch. But I would still argue this was not murder, due to reasonable doubt as to intent.

A number of things bother me about this trial. First, the judge should certainly have ordered a change of venue and sequestered the jury - to shield the jury from halfwits like Rep. Maxine Waters' fire-breathing racism. The trial was held in the center of a highly combustible anti-defendant atmosphere. The crowd threatened to burn the place down in the event of a not guilty verdict; as we are now learning, they may do that regardless. George Floyd's family was also awarded a $27-million settlement earlier, an outrageously excessive verdict given in fear of continued criminal insurrection.

In any event justice was done, if at an extreme level. The question remains, how well will justice continue to serve the people by preventing more free-floating organized riots? As tragic as George Floyd's death is, the full-time salaried rioters are again promising more arson, mayhem, and murder against innocent citizens, shop and homeowners. Their agenda is to communize America under the pretext of fighting "systemic" racism. This goal is a lie, and the riots alone are approaching acts of systemic sedition. This is the modus operandi of George Soros, and Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Twitter, the demigods of Big Tech, and the firehouse nozzles of limitless cash flows to BLM Riotteers.

What I heard from some in the crowd following the conviction of Derek Chauvin was a sullen desire for revenge against the white man, mixed with some earnest desires for reconciliation. With those sons of Soros (above) stirring the pot, reconciliation seems to be on the back burner. Big Tech and their BLM minions are dividing and conquering America by defaming her glorious history, her Constitution, and achievements. They promote the idiocy of "reparations" for historical injustices, forgetting that 600,000 white people (and black) gave their lives to end slavery. It took our bloodiest war to finish the job - but we succeeded! It was the Democratic Party that poisoned Reconstruction and created the Jim Crow decades; straight through the 20th Century the Democratic Party was responsible for inflicting the racist policies which beat African-Americans down. These days we are rarely reminded of this because Big Tech promotes lies, edits, and "cancels" our communications. Ask (African-American) Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) about this.

So, if Big Tech, BLM, Antifa, and the riotous gangs of Grand Inquisitors continue to inflame the rest of us, it's not unlikely that "fragile whitey" may fire back in defense of life, liberty, common sense, and his pursuit of happiness - availing himself of some of those nearly 400-million arms at hand. This (depending upon circumstances) might be wrong, imperiling our Republic, but this is exactly what the Big-Enemies of our nation desire, chaos. They want to "change fundamentally" our country, from capitalist to socialist, to communist. Their dream is of a globalist, not Republican, world order. Not my words, it's their mantra.

It seems like a big jump from the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, to Big Tech, BLM, and attempts to create the Novus Ordo Seclorum, or New World Order. But this is the truth, told from the pages of a small newspaper in the face of those glowering financial powers the world now yields to. Thank God for the First Amendment to our Constitution. This (new order) is an old idea, an idealized fiction which has caused the murder of many hundreds of millions of innocent peoples during the past 100 years alone.

Read it while you can, by defending our Republic against all enemies foreign and domestic.

 

I've been watching another orchestrated riot on TV. This one is in the city of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, following the police shooting of a young black man.

For once, city police, backed by National Guard troops, have shown adequate force to control an unjustified melee. The locals who showed-up early to peacefully protest the death of Daunte Wright, 20, who was apparently shot accidentally by a police officer, were replaced later by the usual BLM-type regulars. The officer, who mistakenly drew and fired her service weapon thinking it was her (less than lethal) Taser, killed the man with a single shot.

Who would not be saddened by the death of this young man, possibly even outraged? Any death, especially an untimely death by violence, brings sadness. But that normal emotional expression never justifies reactions of greater violence by riot, mayhem, looting and arson against innocent victims, which has become routine following the police-death of any African-American, for any reason. Since the beginning of these now routinely expected events, which began after the shooting death of African-American teen Travon Martin (February 2012), professional anarchists have taken over.

BLM, thanks to tens of millions in gifts from large companies and hedge funds like (Black Rock Financial, assets 8.6 Trillion) and Big Tech, have created a truly unopposed Enemy of the Republic. The three young women who founded the organization in 2013 are now rolling in cash. "The [BLM] foundation widely seen as a steward of the Black Lives Matter movement says it took in just over $90 million last year, according to a financial snapshot shared exclusively with the Associated Press." "As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records." "It ended 2020 with a balance of more than $60 million, after spending nearly a quarter of its assets on the grant funds and other charitable giving."

Note: "From the FBI's Universal Crime Report in 2014; 90% of Black people killed were killed by other Black people and 14.8% of white people killed were killed by Black people." So, I watch the now familiar scene of organized, professional rioters confronting police and National Guard defenders, opening their munitions backpacks full of rocks and frozen water bottles to throw, and I'm angered and disgusted. When did this become normal? When did state government show themselves to be so impotent? Or were many governors and mayors in sympathy with the rioters? And when did so many ordinary citizens have so little to say and do about it? Most of all, when will it all END?

The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012 should have been the end of it. But since that time criminality has become much bolder, and more profitable. It can steal anything - even the American presidential election. It can burn anything and avoid arrest for arson. It can murder anyone, especially police officers, and escape the force of justice. And criminality today is most rewarding up front. It is the mercenary collusion of once-loyal American industry, banking, media, academia, intelligentsia, and religion - those who have enriched themselves to financial predominance, who now betray our Republic. In their insatiable appetite for power, they smilingly kowtow to Beijing and tender two and a half centuries of American freedom for 30 pieces of silver.

I started this column thinking about the possible end to our American civilization, it's rise and fall. Like the 1,000-year Roman Empire, there are definite historical similarities. One similarity has to do with population surges which change the empire by changing the electorate. It happened to the Roman Empire, ruler of the world at that time. That empire, like the (republican) United States of America, became morally corrupt and devolved from simple, stoical Republic to opulent Empire, corrupting military and citizenry alike. Rome started as a country of very serious-minded citizens and ended morally and militarily exhausted, before dissolving. I see America headed in the same direction. The most deadly of self-inflicted wounds is rigorously examined in Tucker Carlson's "The truth about demographic change and why Democrats want it." "Native-born Americans of every race and class are being systematically disenfranchised. We need to start talking about it." This particular calculated change is close to completion.

Watch it on FOX, (April 13, 2021). It's the best examination of this greatest threat to the American Republic I've heard in years. Obligatory viewing (and re-viewing) for patriots.

 

Response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion".
Hello again, Kelly.
We disagree sharply on the issue of Sidney Powell's lawsuit in the matter of the "systemic election fraud". Arizona is finally attempting to audit its votes. I wish all of the evidence of this historic fraud would be presented in a public forum (judicial or otherwise) where it could be exposed by experts. That would shut down all the angry conjecture. Who but the guilty parties would object?

I disagree with your statement that "no one with any sense would have believed her arguments." I haven't paid much attention to statements alleged to have been made by Powell's attorneys, but if her own attorney said his arguments on her behalf were "idiotic" this would be a serious breach of ethics - and a violation of common sense. Powell's evidence has never been properly evaluated by objective parties.

As for Matt Gaetz (R-FL) as a man now accused of criminal conduct, he is presumed to be innocent until, and unless, proved guilty. This is the Constitutional right of every American citizen, as you know. I recall four years of false criminal accusations against then-President Trump with governmental connivance. Let's let him confront his accusers and may truth follow.

And as for Jim Jordan (Ohio Rep) allegations from 30-years ago, they remain only that. Do we want to go into these sorts of allegations with Democrats? I can't think of a "clean" Democrat leader since Harry Truman. Jim Jordan is a good man and a great member of Congress. It's refreshing to see a strong member speak truth to power as Jordan does.

I haven't kept up with Trump's activities since the election steal so I can't comment.

VP Harris will soon be elevated to President Harris. Thereafter she will be frequently saluted and would be expected to return the salute. She could use some practice.

It's worth taking a closer look at our President-in-Waiting, VP Harris. An essential part of the 2020 election fraud collusion was choosing Biden and Harris. The great election cabal planned very carefully. Knowing Biden probably wouldn't last more than a year after taking office, Harris was counted on to giggle-in as the feeble replacement, absent any qualifications or experience. So, she will be totally dependent upon the Obama leftovers to direct her decisions and create her policies. Our communist-Islamic enemies have only contempt for her and her country.

With the green-eyed monsters of China, Russia, North Korea and Iran keenly observing Harris as pretend president, they see a babe-in-the-woods to be devoured. They see the once most powerful nation in the world reduce its military to a confused paper tiger, betrayed by Progressive, politically correct power brokers - people who are disconnected to all to American Judeo-Christian tradition, culture and purpose. The American Republic is being sold to our enemies for a few more trillion dollars. They are feeding the beast that will defeat them. They will wring the American eagle by the neck and invite the world's millions to overwhelm us. Our government will be destabilized, our military neutered, our schools and hospitals deluged, jobs dramatically reduced, and Democratic Party voting majorities fixed in perpetuity. We will become something strange as our sovereignty slips away.

Sound too fantastic? Our enemies today do not play politically correct games. They don't believe in climate change or green dreams. They don't believe a person can change his own gender. They don't believe in good faith or fair play. They don't believe in Judeo-Christian moral values. They don't believe that mathematics is racist. They don't believe in democracy. They HATE all of these things, and the people who do believe in them. They freely admit they are here to dominate us.
Above all - they don't believe in God. They see all of these things as simply manifestations of weakness, an invitation to be attacked.

So, why should any rational American believe his country is safe?

I believe our nation will be in war, kinetic or electromagnetic, this year.

Why? For the above reasons, and:

China is beginning to block the South China Sea and is targeting Taiwan, which we now cannot counter without heavy loss, or defeat.

Russia has staged massively against Ukraine, and in new Arctic bases.

North Korea has built a credible land, sea, and missile force, and is now unrestrained by the US under Biden.

Iran continues to build nuclear, air, and sea forces, while naive Biden handlers try to resuscitate the disastrous agreement halted by Trump.

All four of our major enemies have now lost all respect for American military and economic strength developed by Donald Trump. There has never been a greater opportunity to attack America, and China will lead that attack. With their (and Russia's) new hypersonic nuclear ballistic missiles, American intelligence admits they can now take out an entire US carrier strike group. Our latest, $13-billion super carrier cannot even launch aircraft reliably with its new electronic equipment (which supplanted the decades-old but reliable steam-launcher).

But why worry? Trump is gone, and Ms. Kamala is running the show!

 

RESPONSES:
I have the pleasure of responding to 2 letters this week. First, a letter from Patti Walker of Fillmore. The other from Kelly Scoles' - "Second Opinion". Thank you both.

Hello Patti. Very nice to hear from you. Your letter expressing grave concern over the House of Representatives passage of (HR-1, so-called "For the People Act" [and the Senate's SR-1] ) is spot on. Thanks for helping to spread the word.
After "president" Biden's executive order onslaught, our borders are gone. The new spending bills? Hard to tell anymore, but I think something like $8Trillion is now up for grabs. Think of this: "Though it lasted fewer than four years, World War II was the most expensive war in United States history. Adjusted for inflation to today's dollars, the war cost over $4 trillion and in 1945, the war's last year, defense spending comprised about 40% of gross domestic product (GDP)."
Better tuck away some War Bonds.

Maybe Emperor Caligula also giggled like Kamala as he became Emperor and leader of the world. "...he literally wallowed in luxury, allegedly rolling around in piles of money and drinking precious pearls dissolved in vinegar....feats of waste and carnage during his four-year reign (A.D. 37-41) unmatched even by his infamous nephew Nero.

What will the nation look like in 2004?

****

The Biden administration is attempting to shape America's voting laws in such a way as to establish a single party government - a perpetual Democratic Party state. If he succeeds the Republican Party will no longer matter and policy debate will end.

Regardless of how much Democratic Party members may despise Republicans, everyone should understand that the Republic cannot continue to exist with single-party leadership - either Democrat or Republican. Democrats control everything now, and they want to keep it that way by doing away with all voting safeguards. As Ms. Walker's letter clearly explains, this attack on our Republic is absolutely huge; "HR-1 will do the opposite of what the house is saying; it will end social justice and equality. Don't give in to their quest for power. Don't be a pawn to further their own interest." And we want only American citizens to be able to vote in our elections!

Contact your Senators and Representatives - express your opposition - loudly!

****

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer should adopt a motto like Roman Emperor Caligula: “Remember that I have the right to do anything to anybody.” Power, raw, Big-Money power is the only goal of the Democratic Party and destroying existing voting safeguards is the plan.

RESONSE to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion."

Hi Kelly,
I admit that parts of last week's Realities were a bit "outlandish and far-fetched". I was trying to drive-home the non-reality of the LGBTQ (etc.) effort, which is also outlandish and far-fetched. As a reasonable person I demand proof of this extraordinary ability to change one's gender, like I demand proof of systemic fraud in the 2020 election. On the first point, science disproves this claim of sexual auto-mutation. On the second point, massive scientific proof exists beyond any doubt, and no one has successfully challenged the evidence.

One of the greatest glories of American citizenship is the recognition of the God-given right of free speech. This gift, along with many other Constitutional gifts, are in danger of being nullified by socialist Democratic Party activists. It's my intention to express my opinions, right or wrong, smart or stupid, for the express purpose of opposing the socialist enemy. I don't flatter myself into thinking my opinion will move policy mountains, or even mole hills. Outlandish or far-fetched, it's great to live in America and express opinions without fear. And, while I don't agree with much of your opinion, I always respect it, if often wondering why, and I'm sure, vise versa. It's a state of healthy disagreement in our Republic.

About saluting: The president, as Commander in Chief, is always saluted by military members. As V.P., Harris is not obligated to return a salute. It is a question of respect, military tradition, and common courtesy. But this country will pay dearly for her frivolous misunderstanding of our military when she becomes Commander in Chief. God alone can help us at that time when Democratic Party leaders experience the consequences of their treachery.

About the infamous January 6 "insurrection": Let's get the facts straight. The, slowly developing facts show no firearms in Capitol. No fires in the Capitol. Only a few hundred intruders, one felt safe enough to rest in Pelosi's lounge chair. FBI, again, shamefully unhelpful. Whole 4-5 hours staged. Video shows police escorted people through barriers. Most criminal charges minor. CONCLUSION: This was a set piece, part of the coup.

I missed "Republican Senator Ron Johnson's" words so I can't comment.

You mock Sidney Powell without understanding that she exemplifies the stark tragedy of our judicial system failure to rescue the nation from unprecedented election fraud. She just about worked herself to death preparing overwhelming evidence of fraud (in the unreasonably short time provided). She did in fact get "thrown out of every court in the land" not for her "arguments that the election was stolen" but because no court in the land would even LOOK at the thousands of pages of evidence (of systemic) fraud. It's not true that her filings were such "...that no reasonable person would accept them as true." She never even got a hearing.

Sidney Powell is an unrecognized, unappreciated national hero!

Where are today's Minutemen to save our Republic - lawfully?

 

The Gazette will pay a $100 reward for information proving who the person or persons were who sprayed defoliant on the ficus tree next to the great oak near the intersection of Sespe Ave. and Orchard Streets. Only a sick person would do something like this to a beautiful, historic tree. It is hoped that the tree can be saved.

A response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion".

Hello Kelly,
I think I will frame your letter and hang it on my office wall as a classic example of shaky liberal thinking. It's a perfect specimen.

You attempt to answer the many questions I never asked. The subject of my last column focused upon the outrageous injustice (and should be illegality) of men competing against women in women's sports, under the pseudo-scientific category of "transgender" - a pseudo phenomenon only recently recognized by our politically correct psycho-medical system. (I'm speaking here only of individuals who believe they can actually change their biological gender by simply wishing and believing it is so.) 2000-years of rational, traditional medical knowledge recognizes this (except for some Caesars) as delusion. It reminds one of a young man who wakes up one morning feeling he is a giraffe, and therefore demands that the doorways in his house be raised 10-feet to accommodate the length of his new neck. He's now Woke to his new reality.

I'm thinking of a young man who is "transgendering" who, after triumphing on the women's swim team (for example) believes he should shower-up with "his" female teammates after the meet. Under Title 1X there's nothing to stop him, except Christian tradition - and common sense - both taboo among Woke liberals.

You imply I have never advocated for women's rights? On what basis do you assert this? I raised two daughters, always opening paths to every sport that interested them. I "...limited it to sports" because that was the subject. How many other subjects should I have discussed? And my "true advocacy against men...being allowed to compete against women" under Title 1X, was, again, the subject. It is indeed unfair and (should I say it?) - unnatural - to promote this sort of competition due to the significant male strength and endurance advantage. Do you deny this? Men and women are absolutely equal in dignity and intelligence, but otherwise beautifully unique. My question to you is, do you think "transgender" men should be permitted to compete in all women's sports as pretend women? As you can see, I don't think so.

But why argue about the fairness of "transgender" men competing against real women? A simple resolution to this dilemma is to have all "transgender" men compete against each other. That could draw a crowd.

Something toxic has entered the logical thought processes of young people today. Political correctness is telling them, for example, that mathematics is racist. This might be called a logical fallacy. It's a false idea which is being urged upon unsuspecting political neophytes being fed Orwell's "1984" newspeak propaganda - intellectually corrosive, typical Democratic Party fare.

Then, you begin to lecture me about LGBTQ "or any other term used to label human experience of sexuality or gender, is inadequate..." Frankly, I would be completely happy remaining ignorant of these self-inflicted "challenges and burdens" you describe. God bless them all and make them well again. Free will is one of the greatest gifts of God, right after life itself. I don't understand this group, or as you say, "the people they are becoming." They will choose right or wrong, good or bad, and accept the consequences. They can even change course. As you say, "...we should all take notice of [these folks] and support their human quest". And I agree! With my support I want them all to enjoy happiness, eternally. However, there is only one path to that truth, which is Jesus Christ, who is God, all merciful, and always the same yesterday, today and forever.

Now don't go throwing pots and pans at me for this (I apologize if the kitchenware metaphor is too sexist, - I substitute sticks and stones) but you should have expected a conservative response!

After all, you ask "...if one is a believer in a benevolent and intelligent Creator"...and I am, He is Jesus who wrote the Book so we can confidently travel from time to eternity, into a place called Heaven. I didn't intend this to become some sort of spiritual travelogue, but you made me do it.

Boys and girls have always chosen their own sports. The best women basketball players don't choose to be in the NBA because it would be unfair to have their best players confront, for example, a 325-lb, Shaquille O'Neal thundering up the court (when he was thundering).

Therefore, transgender men should not take advantage of the imbecilic Title 1X (Biden translation) of "sex" to mean "transgender" sex, which will destroy all traditional, competitive women's sports. You trans guys out there, it's time to man-up and leave those pigtails alone.
