‘Unplanned’, the Movie

I saw the movie “Unplanned” on Friday afternoon, April 5th. I wanted to know the woman’s story and to understand what was going on within the abortion industry and why the pro-abortion crowd was so upset with the movie. I now have a much clearer understanding!  As you may surmise, I am a staunch pro-life, anti-abortion supporter. This movie, produced by a Christian production (film) company, told the true life story of a woman (Abby Johnson) who had an abortion and her struggles while working at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Texas. The abortion rights activists and Hollywood critics said this movie was gory and showed fetus (fetal) body parts, ‘untrue’. In fact, except for three scenes where there was some blood, it wasn’t graphic at all. In my opinion, it didn’t deserve an ‘R’ rating or being ‘black-balled’ by Hollywood or the media (refused to allow promotional advertisement of the movie on their network stations), although I realize their underlying motivation (and you will, also). It is extremely unlikely a Christian production company would ever produce a movie remotely close to an ‘R’ rating. If you want a clearer understanding, it’s a must watch movie.

Rick’s Editorial: The Battle to Secure the Border

The idea for the subject of an editorial usually comes to me when I least expect it. Sometimes it comes during a conversation with a friend or acquaintance, from something I see or hear from various sources and sometimes (more often than not) the thought just appears out of nowhere. As troubling as this topic is for our country and considering the relentless discussions and media coverage, today’s topic hit me like a bolt of lightning when I read a news banner on the bottom of the television screen. Daily, we hear/see the term ‘Battle to Secure the Border’ and have come to accept it to mean one thing, when in fact, the very essence of the subject means something quite the opposite (depending on the lens you are looking through).

Crumbs!

The Patriot’s Editorial:

All of us have heard the saying: ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ and that is certainly true when it comes to ‘Crumbs’! Nothing could have put this into perspective more than the recent political statement regarding company bonuses immediately following the tax cut. So, I thought it might be enlightening to examine this ‘junk versus treasure’ comment to determine what was really said and why. Read More »

Gun/Weapon Education Versus Misunderstanding

The Patriot’s Editorial:

I recently read a Facebook post that was asking why do we need semi-automatic and automatic weapons. Well, the first thing we need is some education on the difference between those two types of weapons. Individuals that own and love guns as I do, know and understand the difference. There are three types of weapons and I will explain each one and show how they actually operate and why some are legal to own and others are not. Read More »

Distasteful Behavior: What’s in a Word or Words?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

In this ‘It’s All About Me’ world we live in, people believe they have the right to say whatever comes to mind. That includes: saying/writing anything to hurt, impugn or punish someone they disagree with. After listening to it in ‘ad nauseam’ for the paste couple of years, I thought I would try to make some sense of it. Read More »

Challenges of Draining the………………What?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

What does ‘Draining The Swamp’ actually entail? That seems to be the million dollar question simply because new revelations about the depth and magnitude of problems in Washington seem to grow exponentially by the hour. Trying to make sense of this, and figure out what swamp draining involves, has proven to be a convoluted mess and thus, difficult to sort out. Like the ecosystem, many things are going on at once and all have to be addressed and corrected before all negative ‘cause and effect’ issues are eliminated. So, you can not just fix one thing without fixing something else. The obstacles to ‘Draining the Swamp’ are (but not limited to): Read More »

Jim Carrey Comes Unglued, Demands Republicans Be “Removed” so Democracy Can Live

Read

Actor Jim Carrey has had some issues staying on the right side of the sanity line for some time now, but what he just tweeted out against President Donald Trump and the Republican Party is bizarre even by his own disturbed standards.

On Wednesday, Carrey tweeted out a drawing of a lawmaker who appears to represent Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with the following proclamation:

“The GOP and WH have become sinister conclaves of souless traitors, liars and thieves – a gangrene we must remove so democracy can live,” adding the hashtag “#killthebill”

CNN botches dates, inaccurately reports Trump campaign had WikiLeaks sneak peek

Read

CNN’s latest anti-Trump “exclusive” came crashing down on Friday, when the Washington Post debunked the network’s report claiming the Trump campaign had early, secret access to hacked DNC emails from WikiLeaks.

The liberal network on Friday trumpeted that Congressional investigators obtained a mysterious 2016 email that was sent to Trump and other top aides, including Donald Trump Jr., which contained information on how to get a sneak peek at hacked information that WikiLeaks had acquired. The email, as CNN reported, offered a “decryption key” to access the files.

THE MEDIA MOLESTATION OF ALABAMA

Read

In the heat of the mass media moment, there is a chance you overlooked the most disturbing revelation of recent weeks: Lack of mental discipline in America. Journalists have conflated allegations and hearsay with criminal conviction. A state auditor has compared 1970s dating habits to Bible stories. Never-Trumpers are filing in procession for their losing-your-soul-at-the-ballot box litany. These cases could decorate awareness posters for routine self-examination of our reasoning competence.

“Logic!” I can hear C.S. Lewis’s Professor Digory Kirke exclaiming. “Why don’t they teach logic at these schools?”

Because a prideful people fears being embarrassed more than it fears being wrong, you will likely see more voter shaming towards Alabama than critical thinking the remainder of this race. A hasty press has assumed the duty of shaming Alabama voters into submission.

Nancy Sinatra Slams CNN, Congratulates Trump: ‘Why Do You Lie, CNN?’

Daughter of Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, accused CNN of deliberately twisting a comment she made in reference to President Trump, before congratulating the 45th President of the United States on his inauguration.  Responding to an article published by CNN originally entitled, “Nancy Sinatra not happy Trump using father’s song at inauguration

FAKE NEWS: Media Says Trump Inauguration Attendance Low, But Don’t Tell the WHOLE TRUTH

The liberal media was giddy Friday afternoon noting how many fewer people had packed into the National Mall in Washington, DC for President Trump’s inauguration compared to the 2009 inauguration of former President Obama.  The photos they shared on social media certainly showed far fewer attendees for Trump.  What they purposefully left our of their “reporting” was that violent anti-Trump protesters were preventing a huge number of Trump supporters from attending the inauguration.  The Washington Post, one of the few media outlets to report on the phenomenon, wrote:  At John Marshall Park’s checkpoint, Black Lives Matter protesters – chanting ‘Shut it down’ – did just that. Five men chained themselves together, preventing anyone from passing and forcing police officers to redirect attendees to other entrances.  “It feels great that we closed the checkpoint,” said 28-year-old Aaron Goggans, one of the organisers. “But we know this is just the beginning.”  Read

Fake Polls? How CNN And ABC Are Fudging The Numbers To Tank Trump’s Favorability

Two polls released Tuesday — one from ABC and a second from CNN — tout Donald Trump as being the most unfavorable incoming president in modern history — yet on second look, the data is clearly boosted by the pollers’ decision to oversample Democrats.  According to Gallup, 28 percent of Americans identify themselves as a Republican, while 25 percent identify as a Democrat.  Despite this information, eight more percent of participants in both the ABC and CNN polls identified as Democrats, leading to an 11 point swing in partisanship breakdown off the national average.  ABC’s poll sampled 1,005 adults across the nation. However, partisan breakdown shows that only 23 percent of participants identified as Republican.

THANKS, BLACK LIVES MATTER! Ferguson Effect Takes Hold As Officers Stop Pro-Active Policing, Crime Rates Jump

The Ferguson Effect is real. A new survey now shows that police officers have backed off from using force, and as a result crime rates are rising.  The Pew Research Center released a new report that caused the Associated Press to admit that the Ferguson Effect “is a reality, with three-quarters of officers surveyed saying they are hesitant to use force, even when appropriate, and are less willing to stop and question suspicious people.”

The AP highlights the following statistics from the report:

– 86 percent of officers said that fatal encounters between blacks and police have made policing more difficult

– 93 percent said they’re more concerned about safety

– 76 percent said they’re more reluctant to use force when appropriate

– 75 percent said interactions between police and blacks have become more tense

– 72 percent said they or their colleagues are more reluctant to stop and question people who seem suspicious

As the CNN/BuzzFeed Story Falls Apart, Team Trump Declares Open War on MSM

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m old enough to remember when pretty much anyone who was anyone was achingly certain that Donald Trump — a pop culture icon for 30 years, a man who conquered network television, the Manhattan real estate market, and altered skylines throughout the world — was considered to be just a tad smarter than your standard gorilla.

How do you like him now?
