When does Media Spin become a Lie?

By: T F Stern | T F Stern’s Rantings

MediaThere was another ambush of police officers, this time 3 officers were murdered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Many of the media outlets were quick to point out the ‘alleged’ shooter was an ex-Marine who’d served a tour in Afghanistan.

This was from Yahoo News; but the headline matched most other media outlets.

“BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – A former Marine dressed in black and carrying extra ammunition ambushed police in Baton Rouge, shooting and killing three law enforcement officers less than two weeks after a black man was fatally shot by police there in a confrontation that sparked nightly protests that reverberated nationwide.”

There would appear to be no argument the shooter had been a Marine; and as we’ve been warned over and over by the Obama administration, returning military members are considered potential domestic terrorists.

Obama’s Homeland Security isn’t alone in their assessment of returning veterans being threats, unfit to own firearms.

“Sen Dianne Feinstein (D. Cal.) has long been a fanatic gun control advocate.  Yesterday, she upped the ante by declarating that all military vets, merely because they are vets, are mentally ill. On that ground alone she insists that vets should be denied any exemption to her extremist gun control bill.”

The media must have considered the Baton Rouge shooter’s having been a Marine much more important than his having been linked to Nation of Islam. Most outlets never even mention it, and if they did it was buried far into the article.

The ‘alleged shooter’, according to the Daily Caller, Gavin Eugene Long, was a ‘former’ member Nation of Islam.

“Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also ranted against “crackers” and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5.”

You might recall Louis Farrakhan, founder of Nation of Islam, calling for 10,000 volunteers to “Stalk them and kill them”, referring to any White person.  I guess Gavin Eugene Long took Farrakhan up on the offer.  Does that make Farrakhan an accessory to murder?

Media1Which is more of a threat to society, being a former Marine or being associated with radical Islam?  

Obama refuses to use the term Islamic Terrorist and the lapdog media continues to minimize any link to radical Islam when reporting their version of ‘news’.

At what point does media spin become a lie?

The “Sisterhood” in the Media

By: Cliff Kincaid | Accuracy in Media

Hillary Rodham Clinton

In his “That Bloody Woman” editorial in Chronicles about Hillary Clinton, Chilton Williamson, Jr. writes about the “cadre of aging and bitter feminists” backing the Democrat for president. He says they “would enthusiastically elect a dead woman as president to vindicate the Sisterhood younger women care little about.” It appears this “Sisterhood” is finding its voice in The Washington Post.

As the trusted voice of far-left feminism in the nation’s capital, the Post ran these headlineson Saturday afternoon about Donald J. Trump’s decision to pick Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate: “Trump had a problem with women voters. Pence could make it even worse.” What is Pence’s problem? Well, he “has endorsed controversial legislation on abortion and Planned Parenthood.”

Post reporter Katie Zezima neglected to mention that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, was founded by Margaret Sanger, a revolutionary socialist and anti-Christian activist who favored government programs to eliminate what she called “human weeds.”

After a pilgrimage to Stalin’s Russia, Sanger said, “[W]e could well take example from Russia, where birth control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government.” She hailed the Soviet Union’s abortion law, noting that Russia was probably the first country in the world to give official approval to abortion.

“Russia today is the country of the liberated woman,” she announced.

Ignoring all of this, Post reporter Zezima went on: “Democrats—including presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton—women’s health advocates and gay rights groups wasted no time pouncing on Pence, whom they described as extreme, anti-woman and anti-gay.”

Anti-woman? Pence favors the right to life of unborn women. He supports traditional marriage and human life. He’s “anti-gay” because he supports traditional values and believes those who hold those views have a right to express and practice them.

By contrast, Hillary Clinton says she admires Sanger and opposes limits on abortion at any stage of pregnancy. She says the “unborn person” doesn’t have a constitutional right to life.

Doesn’t this make her anti-human or anti-life?

The Post term, “women’s health advocates,” means apologists for abortion and disregard for the sanctity of human life.

“Earlier this year,” the Post said, “Pence signed one of the nation’s farthest-reaching abortion laws, which bans abortions of fetuses diagnosed with Down syndrome or any other disability or because of the race, sex or ancestry of the fetus.”

Another way to say this is that Pence favors the right to life of disabled people and wants to prohibit deadly discrimination against them in the womb.

Hitler regarded the disabled as “life unworthy of life.” According to the U.S. Holocaust Museum, children with disabilities were sent to “killing wards,” where they were murdered by lethal overdoses of medication or by starvation.

Hillary Clinton and other “progressives” endorse the same thing, as long as it is done in the womb.

This is the mark of the Sisterhood: abortion for any reason at any time.

Quoting the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Post said Pence’s pro-life policies violate “women’s rights.” But sex selection abortion primarily targets girls.

“In Congress,” Ms. Zezima said, “Pence embarked on a crusade against Planned Parenthood, filing the first legislation that called for barring the organization from receiving federal funding.”

The word “crusade” is meant to suggest he’s a religious fanatic. He was the “first” to file such legislation, meaning he’s really a pro-life nut.

“The addition of Pence tacks the GOP ticket far to the right on gay issues as well,” she adds. That means he’s serious about protecting traditional values.

One never finds the term “far-left” used in the Post to refer to the feminists in the Democratic Party or their lackeys at papers like the Post. The Post warns about Pence, “He is also against allowing undocumented people a pathway to citizenship.”

The term “undocumented people” is, of course, a euphemism for illegal aliens. These are people who broke the law to enter the United States. To the Post, they are merely “undocumented,” meaning that the dog ate their homework—through no fault of their own.

Zezima might as well be on the payroll of the Hillary Clinton campaign. Or perhaps she is working for Planned Parenthood.

This is the Sisterhood in action. Expect more garbage of this nature from the liberal media.

TWA 800: Twenty Years and Counting [Video]

By: Roger Aronoff | Accuracy in Media

TWA

Accuracy in Media (AIM) recently held a press conference highlighting Jack Cashill’s latest book, TWA 800: The Crash, the Cover-Up, and the Conspiracy. The July 7th press conference received virtually no news media coverage, a continuation of the complicit media’s role in covering up the truth behind this tragic plane crash in 1996.

Cashill has broken new ground in this outstanding, recently released book. He cites the role of Jamie Gorelick, a former deputy attorney general appointed in 1994 by then-President Bill Clinton, who was the author of “the wall” that former CIA Director George Tenet described in 2004 to the 9/11 commission. That “wall” kept the CIA and FBI from sharing information in the run-up to September 11. Cashill wrote that “a newly unearthed treasure trove of CIA documents proves beyond argument, under Gorelick’s watchful gaze the CIA and FBI worked hand in glove to subvert the TWA 800 investigation.”

I also recently wrote about the TWA 800 crash for the American Thinker, detailing how Accuracy in Media’s investigation helped to expose the government cover-up, and how an AIM documentary demonstrated that the plane could not have simply exploded. We long ago concluded that the plane had to have been brought down by a missile or missiles.

Cashill, an outstanding investigative journalist, credits AIM for opening doors for him that he “could not have opened” himself, and for freely sharing its research. He also argues that TWA Flight 800 did not crash due to mechanical error, but instead due to missiles launched by nearby naval assets. Cashill noted at the press conference that “the FBI finally admitted that there were three submarines and a cruiser in the immediate—[those are] FBI words—in the immediate vicinity of the crash site.”

Although the 20th anniversary of the TWA 800 plane crash is this weekend, July 17th, even the few media organizations that have reported on Cashill’s book have chosen to obscure some key facts and cast him as a conspiracy theorist.

“While Cashill rehashes old conspiracy theories—a US Navy ship, which was in fact in the area, conducted a wartime exercise gone awry, or a terrorist on the ground used a shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missile, or a small plane collided with the 747, or a terrorist smuggled a bomb on board—it’s telling that, 20 years later, these theories still find traction,” writes Maureen Callahan for The New York Post. Similarly, the UK Daily Mailreports that Cashill’s book “takes a look at some of the alternate theories” and relegates the terrorist and naval exercise theories to “conspiracy theorists” and calls these “claims … declared untrue by the FBI a little over a year after the crash.” But at least these two articles reported on the various theories and some of the supporting evidence.

“The phrase ‘conspiracy theorist’ today is the word that we used to use for reporter a generation ago,” said Cashill at the press conference. “But right now they can just dismiss me as a conspiracy theorist, a nut job, a loose cannon. And that affects also the respectable conservative media: Weekly Standard, National Review. They don’t want to talk about this.”

Cashill was joined by other interested parties including John Clarke, the attorney for the key legal case proving a government cover-up; Mike Wire, an eyewitness to the explosion whoseaccount was said to be the basis for the CIA-produced animation of the event; and former NTSB member Vernon Grose, who talked about how his mind was changed when presented at an AIM press conference with evidence that the government had withheld from the public. Here are some of our findings, in the words of each of the speakers. [We broke the press conference up into four video segments.]

Roger Aronoff:

“So when I arrived at Accuracy in Media in 1997, we were just starting to get into this story. And what happened is there were two people who came to us wanting to investigate this story, and wanted AIM’s help. And [they] believed that AIM is the group that would do it, that was willing to buck the media and the government. And if the evidence was there, that’s what drove us—always has, and always will.”

“And so this case, when these two people came to us. One was Commander Bill Donaldson, former Navy pilot and crash investigator, and he believed that…what happened that night was actually the result of a terrorist missile.”

“The other was the Naval exercise gone wrong theory. There was an area, Whiskey 105, where they were doing Naval exercises, testing missiles and things. Jim Sanders, a retired cop and investigator, came forward believing that this was what happened that day.”

Jack Cashill:

“And the one bit of information they had that I had not seen and did not even know about, and I felt stupid for not knowing because I had presumed there was just a handful of eye witnesses and they all had conflicting reports, were the 750 FBI witness statements, 258 of which were from individuals who had seen an object ascend up off the horizon and attack the airplane.”

“According to the CIA, within two weeks of the disaster FBI agents had interviewed 144 ‘excellent’ eye witnesses—FBI word—to a likely missile strike and found the evidence for such a strike ‘overwhelming,’ FBI word. The CIA analyst then boasted of discouraging the FBI from releasing its missile report.”

“Of the 258 eyewitnesses do you know how many The New York Times interviewed? Zero. None.”

John Clarke:

“Now, if the [TWA] Flight 800 was taken down by missile fire, it wouldn’t be one or two stray pieces of evidence, it would be all the evidence tells us that. And that’s exactly what all the evidence tells us.”

“But I think that the most shocking, the most probative evidence in the case is the CIA zoom climb animation. I mean, they put [this on] national television and told the families that really, essentially, the front third of the aircraft was blown out, was blown off—and, as Jack said, the rear two thirds of the aircraft, a weight and balance of two thirds of the aircraft, shot up the better part of a mile. I mean, it is absolutely ridiculous. It is just absurd. It’s called the zoom climb cartoon, the CIA cartoon.”

“I spoke with all of those [six] witnesses, and not one reporter called one of the witnesses. It’s just amazing.”

Mike Wire:

“But the firework went up from behind the roof line of a house and went out to sea. It wavered in its travel up and down, went out at like a forty-degree angle. And after a while it arced over, disappeared, and out of that [within] a couple seconds an explosion erupted which grew into a huge fireball. And a couple parts blew out of the fireball, but the main fuselage came out of the fireball. It was on fire in the front of the fuselage and it left like a tube of fire going from the fireball as the plane descended behind house number two, which I couldn’t see it hit the water but it went down behind the house.”

“It’s time for people to come out and say what they saw, and for other people to confess what they’ve done.”

Vernon Grose:

“So, I was predisposed, I would say, to the idea that there could have been a wiring arc tracking into the tank, the center wing tank on TWA 800.”

“…at that symposium by Accuracy in Media they had photographs…clearly that the left side of the fuselage had imploded. Now, aircraft do not implode—they explode. … At that moment, after two years of many interviews, I changed my mind, and I knew that it had to be a missile.”

What happened to the RNC’s corporate sponsors?

By: Renee Nal | New Zeal

Screenshot of Color of Change petition to corporations to “Stop sponsoring Donald Trump”

The Color of Change and CREDO are radical left organizations that have made it their mission to aggressively target any and all corporate sponsors of the Republican National Convention, warning them that their brands will be tarnished if they are perceived to support the presumptive nominee.

But in a seeming competition for the “bad behavior award,” the lack of corporate supporters in Cleveland prompted convention organizers to send an embarrassing (and phony) letter to Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson begging for money to cover costs.

The letter was leaked to the press.

It is unclear who leaked the letter to Politico, which claimed that numerous corporate sponsors backed out due to “negative publicity around our potential nominee.” But Politico found that many of the companies listed never pledged money to support the RNC in the first place. A spokeswoman for the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee, Emily Lauer, “acknowledged to POLITICO that the list of lost donors in the letter to Adelson was inaccurate — and that the committee has now reached out to Adelson’s aides to apologize.”

In sum, organizers of the Republican National Committee attempted to secure a shortfall of millions by blatantly lying to Sheldon Adelson in a letter that was leaked to Politico, who was able to quickly confirm that the companies who “pledged money” and bailed on the convention never pledged money at all. So, despite their support in previous years, corporate sponsors are evidently not interested in funding the potentially violent Republican National Convention this year.

Shut down the RNC!!! Communists conspire to create chaos in Cleveland

By: Trevor Loudon | New Zeal

Hardcore revolutionaries are working overtime to disrupt, even shut down, the Republican National Convention opening Monday in Cleveland.

Mmggdd

Unless Cleveland’s police are well prepared and resolute, the city’s streets could well see bloodletting and violence on a scale not seen since Chicago 1968. Given the recent spate of communist-driven and White House encouraged anti-police violence and the almost visceral hatred many on the left feel towards prospective Republican nominee Donald Trump, almost anything could happen. If City leaders don’t firmly stand behind their “thin blue line,” the radicals will try to turn Cleveland into a cauldron of hatred.

Tom Burke

Tom Burke

Grand Rapids, Michigan based activist Tom Burke, one of the lead organizers of the Coalition to Stop Trump and March on the RNC, says the protest has two aims. “One is it helps to build movements in this country by tying local groups to national issues. Secondly, it has an impact on the elections because the media starts to cover what the protesters are saying. We have a very different agenda than the Republican Party — and this year, in particular.”

Mick Kelly

Mick Kelly

Mick Kelly, a co-leader of  Coalition to Stop Trump and March on the RNC stated, “We plan on marching right up to the site of the RNC. We insist that our right to protest is respected. The people of this county are rejecting Trump and his racist, anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim attacks.”

Both men are long time leaders of the neo-Maoist Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! One of the most militant groups in the country, Freedom Road has actively supported Marxist insurgencies in the Middle East and Latin America for decades and enjoys a close relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a leading American Muslim Brotherhood front group.

Hassan Shibly CAIR left, Mick Kelly right, Tampa 2015

Both Burke and Kelly were among 23 mainly Chicago and Minneapolis based activists whose houses were raided in 2011, during an FBI crackdown on the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack! faction.

According to Tom Burke:

“Thousands of people are coming to the RNC to protest Trump. Buses are being chartered to come to this protest from as far away as Minnesota, and we plan on being within sight and sound of the RNC on July 18.”

About 40 immigrant rights, student, anti-war, labor and low-income organizations have announced their support for the protest. Almost all are front groups for Freedom Road or their allies, the pro-North Korea and Iran Workers World Party.

While Freedom Road and Workers World are leading the charge, almost every communist group in the country is likely to be involved. Cleveland is in easy driving distance of the communist strongholds of Detroit, Minneapolis and Chicago, and not too far from New York, Boston and Philadelphia. Freedom Road and Workers World are mobilizing their cadre from all over the Midwest; down to Durham, North Carolina; Tampa Bay and Tallahassee in Florida; and across to Salt Lake City, Utah.

The endorser list is growing and includes communist fronts such as Chicago based National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression; the Milwaukee Anti-War Committee; People’s Opposition to War, Imperialism and Racism; Students for a Democratic Society; the United Workers Organization of Wisconsin; the Detroit Active and Retired Employees Association; the United National Antiwar Coalition; and Muslims for Social Justice.

Many of the same organizers helped lead the mass marches that drew thousands at the 2008 RNC in Saint Paul, Minnesota and the 2012 RNC in Tampa, Florida. The protests in Cleveland are expected to be both much larger and more violent.

The demonstration will put forward the slogans:

“Dump Trump, Say No to the Republican Agenda. Stand Against Racist, Anti-Immigrant, and Anti-Muslim Attacks. We demand Peace, Justice and Equality.”

Tom Burke states:

“We have now applied for permits to march on the RNC and we insist that the permits are granted in a timely manner. We have a right to protest Trump and his racist, reactionary agenda, and that is exactly what we will do on the opening day of the Republican National Convention.”

Mick Kelly added:

“While the coalition wants permits to ensure the broadest participation in the protest, we will march permits or not.”

“We will have speakers representing a wide range of struggles — Black Lives Matter, Palestine and the Right to Return, Indigenous demands to scrap the racist mascot of the Cleveland baseball team, doctors marching a few days later against Islamophobia, justice for migrants, LGBTQ rights, Detroiters fighting foreclosure, and many more,” said Cleveland-based march organizer Susan Schnur. “We encourage people to bring signs and banners representing their own struggle against bigotry, economic injustice, and the capitalist system responsible for both.”

Susan Schnur

Susan Schnur

As Lydia Bayoneta, long time Rochester, NY activist and Workers World Party organizer explained:

“The racist onslaught of police terror in the United States is part of a worldwide mobilization of racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant and reactionary forces. In Cleveland, the eyes of the world will be focused not only on the reactionary forces, but also on the growing resistance within the U.S to racist police terror and all forms of oppression.”

At the 3,000 strong People’s Summit in Chicago last month, I interviewed more than a dozen communists from several parties. Most were looking to Cleveland. Several talked of the US being closer to revolution than any time since 1968. You could see the light of revolutionary fervor in their eyes. They saw Cleveland as a revolutionary opportunity of a lifetime.

God forbid that a Democrat-led city allows these people to live out their bloody fantasies.

CNN Headline: Albanian Couple Arrested in France Attack

By: Julia Gorin | Republican Riot

Pamela Geller already has it. There are no details other than six are in custody for the crowd-mowing jihadi attack in Nice last week. The estranged wife of the Albanian man involved has been released and is not a suspect.

Pamela correctly interprets the media’s use of the word “Albanian” as planting doubt about the Muslimness of everyone involved. It was something that Jim Jatras and I mentioned on her radio show in 2007 — namely that the term “ethnic Albanian” became useful during the 1999 conflict, to not turn Westerners off from helping the Muslim side in the conflict against the Christian-Serbs we were setting up as the villain.

But recall that we witnessed the disappearance of the word “Albanian” from articles in the early 2000s, when the news coming out about them was less flattering than their plight as innocent victims of bloodthirsty Christians (e.g., drugs, prostitution, jihad, gangs). Instead, terms like “Yugoslavs” were used, and sometimes “Kosovars,” since no one would know what that was despite our having waged our last pre-9/11 war there, the war that closed the 20th century. The foreshadowing war (of what was to become commonplace in this century: pro-jihad NATO war).

In other words, after working so hard to prop up ethnic identity in multi-national Yugoslavia and dismantle that country into ethnically pure, Western-dependent statelets, our officials and media found themselves embarrassed by their clients, and started shrouding their ethnicity.

But now, with Muslims being undeniably out-of-control enough for even the world-in-denial to notice, the media and government goal is to shield the Islamic background of as many suspects as possible. And so “Albanian” has again become preferable, and media have gotten over their shyness in using it.

I’ll close with a sophomoric tangent, something that took me 17 years since the Kosovo war to notice. We all remember whose war it was. Hillary, Bill and Wesley aside, it was “Maddie’s War.” Namely, Madeleine Albright’s. It’s silly to even notice this, but look at the first three letters of her last name: Alb.

Then again, if Shakespeare had written the story, this might have been considered a telltale clue, a foreshadowing. It’s as if she were predestined to FTW ( “F–k The World”).

Ah, “if women ran the world…” indeed.

Get ready for the last female president.

We Must Stop Surrendering to Leftist Evil Such as Black Lives Matter

By: Lloyd Marcus

Black Lives Matter

So I got a phone call from my 88 year old black dad asking if I am familiar with “The View” TV show. I told dad the show is riddled with liberal bias. Dad said the show featured a horrific incident in which a young black male was unfairly shot by police. As best I could, I tried to explain to dad how irresponsible it was for the TV show to feature a rare “bad shoot” in the midst of cops being murdered nationwide. Despicably, the TV show wanted to do its part to further Black Lives Matter’s evil lie that cops murder blacks at will.

I bombarded dad with facts and stats which prove that blacks are the greatest threat to black lives, not racist white cops. http://bit.ly/1LFSb6D When I hung up the phone, I felt dad still leaned towards believing the lie promoted on “The View.” It is frustrating folks.

My fellow Americans we can not continue allowing the Left to pull the same dirty trick on us to get their way. First, they launch a media blitz promoting a false reality about one of their agenda items. Then, the Left demands that we embrace their lie or suffer being branded divisive and haters.

For example: Liberal media, the White House and democrat talking heads are unbelievably promoting Black Lives Matter’s lie that cops are racist and routinely murder blacks. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cops have saved tens of thousands of minority lives since the mid-1990s. http://bit.ly/29t0E1L Stats prove that 93% of blacks are killed by blacks. http://nws.mx/1yI09I8 And yet, the Left is hellbent on intimidating us into making the Black Lives Matter lie our reality.

I find this particular Leftist tactic insidious and repulsive. The Left tugs at heartstrings by saying that they only want “unity.” But here’s the dirty little secret. Unity to Leftist means they demand that decent fair-minded Americans ignore truth, ignore common sense, abandon their convictions and embrace the Left’s latest anti-God and anti-American evil agenda item.

Everyone who dares speak truth and refuses to surrender to the Left’s bullying are targeted for total destruction; branded divisive and haters. Every time we pander and surrender, we embolden a small group of liberal activists to impose more of their iron-fist will on the majority of Americans.

This has to stop folks. We must begin speaking the truth. Black Lives Matter is a well-funded vile hate-generating terrorist group. http://bit.ly/29Ob3I6 Their movement was founded on the lie that black criminal Michael Brown was shot with his hands up surrendering to a police officer. The truth is Brown was shot while attacking the police officer, attempting to take his gun. http://bit.ly/1V2je6K These facts are public record, and yet, ignored by the Left. Black Lives Matter is pure evil folks. Why in the world would we allow BLM to lord over us; sheepishly surrendering by making their evil lie our reality?

I am black. It frustrates me hearing well-intention whites and duped blacks falling for Black Lives Matter, Obama, Hollywood and the mainstream media’s lie about our brave men and women in blue.

Yes, bad shootings do happen. I am sure there are bad cops. Jesus had 12 disciples and even one of them was a bad apple. Studies confirm that most cops are heroes, committed to protecting all lives. http://bit.ly/2a6dzIL

I am sick of it folks. I am sick of Americans being bullied into embracing things that they know are wrong; sick of the promotion of blatant lies; sick of being told we must make absurd lies our reality; sick of evil triumphing. It is time we take a stand. It is time we just say, “No!”

A scene from the western movie, “Pale Rider” comes to mind. A group of humble miners asked the character played by Clint Eastwood to lead them in battle against a powerful group of bad guys. Eastwood told the miners that he would lead the charge, but some of them would die. Freedom ain’t free folks.

Standing up to the Left probably will not result in one’s physical death. However, it could cost you everything else. I pray that God gives me his courage and strength to stand when I need it.

I am in the process of organizing/producing a Blue Lives Matter rally. http://bit.ly/29MSqHg My goal is to spread the truth about our police and unify Americans. I envision a black choir singing; blacks on stage sharing their positive encounters with police. A woman I approached to be on my production team said she loves the idea, but feared Black Lives Matter will be angry and cause trouble; possibly violence.

This is the intimidation that I am sick of. I told her we cannot allow evil people to stop us from doing what we know is the right thing to do. I assured her that we will invite lots of cops and hire security. After we select the venue, date and acquire sponsors for the rally, I will promote it.

For years, I have been quoting statistics to my black relatives and associates which prove that most of the problems plaguing black communities are self induced. http://www.lloydmarcus.com/ But when my relative’s beloved black president, democrats and mainstream media tells them all their problems are the fault of racist America, they believe it. They simply regard me as their weird Uncle Tom relative.

The Bible says be not weary in well doing. I must confess. I have been feeling weary folks; very, very weary.

Sitting on the beach the other day, I read in a book I acquired over 20 years ago. The book is Norman Vincent Peale’s, “You Can If You Think You Can.”

Dr Peale wrote: “When everything seems to be going wrong, that is the time to practice the positive mental belief that you can still achieve your objective provided you persist, trying everything. If you start thinking it’s hopeless, your state of mind will actually attract further trouble to defeat you. Instead, hold the thought that conditions will shift in your favor – and get going.”

Dr Peale also said it is always too soon to give up. It is crucially important that we stop pandering and surrendering to the Left’s bullying tactics. It only empowers them to beat up on us more. It is time that we persist in our efforts to spread the truth in prayerful expectation of changing the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans. Brothers and sisters, lets get going. http://bit.ly/29MSqHg
