Hypocrisy is in Fashion for 2017

melania-trump-sophie-theallet

I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump and I’m certainly not a Trump apologist, but the hypocrisy, bias, manipulation, and outright lies the media has not only allowed and made socially acceptable, but propagated about him, his family, and his campaign are so vicious and overblown that I feel the need to defend him publicly…which angers me enormously. Designer Sophie Therrault, who has dressed Michele Obama for the last eight years, has stated she will never dress Melania Trump, and has urged fellow designers to follow suit. She stated, in part:  I am well aware it is not

Can Republicans Put Country First? Part I: The Problem

CPC Eagle and Flag

Many Republicans and conservatives are trying to graciously succumb to defeat, reluctantly joining with Donald Trump because they are out of options. One man’s comment on Facebook was (paraphrasing) “voting for a little hope, vs. none at all.” They’re not happy about it. They’re desperate. We are all desperate. Unfortunately for our country, Trump enthusiasts chose not to look at Mr. Trump objectively. You behaved exactly as did the Obama minions in 2008 — see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. You didn’t want to know. You were “angry, and didn’t care anymore.” You chose a nominee

Where Has the High Road Taken Conservatives?

CPC Highway

What do Conservatives do best? Take the high road.  Let’s take stock of where the high road has taken us. Donald Trump is the Republican nominee.  Need I really say more?  He lied and smeared Ted Cruz and others, and the ignorant populace ran to him, moths to a flame.  We were proud of Senator Cruz, proud that he didn’t get down in the mud with Trump, proud that he stuck to the facts.  But facts be damned!  The sheep flocked to the vulgar rants of a self-styled Republican in sheep’s clothing.  The media propped him up and shoved

Military Transitions Transgender Policy

CPC Ash Carter

Today, Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, in continuation of his goal to transition the United States Military from a traditional fighting force to an all-inclusive, no holds barred, social experiment, dropped the ban on trans-gendered people serving in the American Military.  The change, effective immediately, completes the trend that began in 2011, when gays and lesbians were permitted to serve openly, abandoning the former “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.  The LGBT community celebrates the victory today, after years of intense lobbying. This policy change makes the United States the twentieth military force in the world to accept openly transgendered

Media Bias Catches Up with the Left

CPC Bernie Followers

Do you ever feel that you’re getting the news of the day?  I am speaking of just news, no spin, no bias, no corporate agendas; the way it used to be.  I remember Walter Cronkite; it would be many years until I realized he was so far to the left, that he was practically a communist. Mr. Cronkite was trusted by the people of this nation; nobody felt lied to, or bamboozled.  He was there for us, in our living rooms, through the Kennedy Assassinations, the Moon Landing, the Vietnam War, and countless other events, without making himself the

Truth Is Not Hate…

2015 was a tough year. An interaction that really stands out involves a hateful note to me from someone I’d thought of as a friend for twenty plus years. Yes, I anticipated vitriol when I decided to blog. It was surprising, though, that it came from someone so close. She posted a meme on Facebook – from “Being Liberal with Melissa Lawrence.” I took that to mean she was implying that conservatives are not loving or kind. I commented, “We feel the same way.” or something along those lines. Her biting retort, which I don’t recall now, was like a dare, and

Happy 2016! I’m rested and ready to get to work. I had planned to write on a different topic today, but I was perusing Facebook when a young woman I’ll call Bernice, hit me with an ugly leftist post. I dearly love this girl. She’s a bright college senior and she’s been sucking up knowledge like a sponge for the last three and a half years. I could say that’s a good thing except that our institutions of higher learning are no longer guiding and leading students to seek truth, but most often are indoctrinating and propagandizing the collective

I was hanging out on Facebook today when the news broke that the whole Los Angeles School System closed due to a threat. An old memory popped into my head; a terrorist takedown of an elementary school in Russia years ago. I posted a comment with the news piece and went on about my day. A bit later I received a message from Debra M. This was the comment I posted with the news story: Had enough yet? Or would you prefer to wait ’till we have our very own Beslan…oh, you don’t know what I’m referring to? Islamic attack

Intolerance

Progressives Intolerant Of All Things Republican

I believe this is the finest group of Republican presidential nominees we’ve fielded in 35 years. We have the Libertarian, three very impressive first generation immigrants, an ordinary woman who punched her way through the proverbial glass ceiling while the boys club looked on, a brilliant doctor who came from dire poverty and propelled himself to incredible heights. None of these candidates are career politicians from the ruling elite, and none come from privilege. Each offers the unique perspective that only comes from personal struggle with oppression, poverty, hunger, or persecution. We’d do well to listen to their stories and take
