Bird’s Eye View


A WORD FROM: THE WISE

 

I have been waiting for the Dems to make another fatal error so that Trump could regain some momentum. Well, true to the history of the Democrat Party, they have provided Trump with a remarkable opening that will surely last until the November elections. That issue is the defunding of police departments across the country. This is an issue right out of the leftists’ playbook “Rules For Radicals.” The problem with this issue is that the Dems have no answers when it comes to basic security for the common guy and family. Who will answer the 911 phone? Who will protect me if confronted with a criminal? Will the mayor be available to provide support when an emergency happens? Will the mayor be willing to forego his police protection? Who will investigate a murder? Who will ensure that drivers follow the local speed limits? Trump’s job approval is now at 38% but I think that is not bad considering what has been thrown at him this year. He will start his campaign rallies in about 2 weeks and I think we will see his number climb from now until November. As soon as Biden starts campaigning instead of working from is basement bunker we will see the differences in the two candidates. The dems want to hide Biden as long as possible because they know when he speaks he will once again become the gaff machine that they cannot hide.

The defunding issue plays right into Trump’s wheelhouse of law and order. Biden has quickly come out with a statement indicating that he does not support defunding the police because he has already seen the poll numbers on this issue. But his party is the one pushing the issue so whether he likes it or not he owns this issue. Just think of all those white suburban women who voted for Clinton in 2016 and again for Democrats in 2018 who clearly don’t support this issue. It is going to be hard to convince these people that the Dems will not demand defunding if they take control of Washington. Safety and security is the number one function of government and the Dems have decided to pass. In a recent poll, 72% of the people had a favorable view of their local police force. Good luck trying to go against that number!

I see that Colin Powell has noted that he will vote for Biden in November. Powell claims he is a member of the Republican Party but he voted for Obama two times and Clinton in 2016. So he continues with at least 4 elections not having voted for a single Republican. I would say that he is the classic poster child for a RINO! This is the guy who will always be remembered for his WMD speech at the UN. I guess he just needs to refresh his 5 minutes of fame every 4 years. Maybe Trump will consider him to be our next ambassador to Iran if he wins in November. If that post is already reserved he could also be a candidate for the ambassador to North Korea!

I suspect that many of the cops in Minnesota are already sending out resumes looking for employment in friendlier communities. This morning Bernie Kerik indicated that more than 600 New York City police officers are quitting after the recent riots in that city and the lack of any support from the mayor. Hopefully a couple of these left wing mayors will follow through and eliminate the entire police organizations in their cities. How long will it be before the armed gangs start controlling the streets? Then they will call for the ban of all weapons, except those used by the criminals. Please just do this before November so voters will have a clear choice on this issue. How long before people start moving to safer communities?

Finally, this is just my personal opinion. I believe Tucker Carlson’s major goal on his nightly program is to see how many bombs he can throw in a 60-minute period. He likes to attack anything and everything while trying at the same time to always take the high moral road. After his opening monologue he then brings forward a number of guests, each getting one or two quick questions and then he is off to the next issue. After sitting through a 60-minute program, I often come away asking myself what exactly I learned and often answer nothing. So I have started watching Newsmax instead and find their programs have much more informative. I see that Newsmax has hired Micelle Malkin to host a new program. They have several former Fox News people working there now and the programming is geared to conservatives. They also have a number of contributors who previously worked for Fox (until Fox decided to shift programming to more center of the road). They also picked up at least one WH reporter (Emerald Robinson) who previously worked at OAN. Greg Kelly has a friendly news show at 7 pm nightly on Newsmax with guests that rival Fox News and in some cases exceed Fox News. My take is that Newsmax is now the news organization that Fox News was when they began operations a few years ago. Give it a try if you prefer conservative news coverage.

Two boys were walking home from Sunday school

After hearing a strong preaching on the devil.

One said to the other, ‘What do you think about

all this Satan stuff?’

The other boy replied, ‘Well, you know how

Santa Claus turned out

It’s probably just your Dad..’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl

whispered to her mother, ‘Why is the bride dressed in white?”

The mother replied, ‘Because white is the color

Of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.’

The child thought about this for a moment then said,

‘So why is the groom wearing black?’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Three boys are in the schoolyard bragging about

their fathers.

The first boy says, ‘My Dad scribbles a few words

On a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50.’

The second boy says, ‘That’s nothing. My Dad

scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100.’

The third boy says, ‘I got you both beat. My Dad

scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

An elderly woman died last month.

Having never married, she requested no male

pallbearers.

In her handwritten instructions for her memorial

service, she wrote,

‘They wouldn’t take me out while I was alive,

I don’t want them to take me out when I’m dead.’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A police recruit was asked during the exam,

‘What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?’

He answered, ‘Call for backup.’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A Sunday School teacher asked her class why

Joseph and Mary took Jesus with them to Jerusalem.

A small child replied, ‘They couldn’t get a babysitter.’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.

After explaining the commandment to ‘Honor thy

father and thy mother,’ she asked,

‘Is there a commandment that teaches us how to

treat our brothers and sisters?’

Without missing a beat, one little boy answered,

‘Thou shall not kill.’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

At Sunday School they were teaching how God

created everything, including human beings.

Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they

told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.

Later in the week his mother noticed him lying

down as though he were ill, and she said, ‘Johnny, what is the matter?’ 

Little Johnny responded, ‘I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.’

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

You don’t stop laughing because you grow old..

You grow old because you stop laughing!

Take heed and pass these along to people who

need a laugh.

I thought you would enjoy this….times are tough

right now…for all of us…so we need something to make the day a happy place.

Vanishing Pastry

On a visit to New York, an Englishman and a Scotsman go to a pastry shop. The Englishman whisks three cookies into his pocket with lightning speed. The baker doesn’t notice.

The Englishman says to the Scotsman, “You see how clever we are? You’ll never beat that!”

The Scotsman says to the Englishman, “Watch this, a Scotsman is always more clever than an Englishman.”

He says to the baker, “Give me a cookie, I can show you a magic trick!”

The baker gives him the cookie which the Scotsman promptly eats. Then he says to the baker, “Give me another cookie for my magic trick.”

The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too. Then he says again, “Give me one more cookie.”

The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. The Scotsman eats this one too. Now the baker is really mad, and he yells, “And where is your famous magic trick?”

The Scotsman says, “Look in the Englishman’s pocket!”

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—Black Lives Matter


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER

When the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) was first formed right after George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin on July 13, 2013, most overlooked the true intentions of the group beyond their calls for ‘justice”. Fast forward to today and it can no longer be overlooked that their calls for justice now result in retaliatory violence against those whom they believe are the oppressors, namely white people in general and police officers and with demands to defund the police or even abolish police departments altogether. By tracing the origins of the organization back to its philosophical formation in the 1960s, we can begin to see how BLM is rooted in the radical ideological beliefs espoused by none other than Barack Obama.

It is crucial for us to understand that BLM was founded by three militant feminists by the name of Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opel Tometi. While each played their part in contributing to the creation of the group, Garza is the driving force as she detailed the philosophy behind BLM in her October 2014 article titled “A history of the #BlackLivesMatterMovement.” Garza wrote the following in regards to BLM philosophy: “Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes. It goes beyond the narrow nationalism that can be prevalent within some Black communities, which merely call on Black people to love Black, live Black and buy Black, keeping straight cis Black men in the front of the movement while our sisters, queer and trans and disabled folk take up roles in the background or not at all. Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks. Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements. It is a tactic to rebuild the Black liberation movement.”

The key takeaway from Garza’s statement is found in the last two sentences primarily as she notes that BLM was created with the intention to “rebuild the Black liberation movement.” The reason this statement is of utter importance is because it ties directly to the idea of Black Liberation theology, which was the doctrine taught to Obama for over twenty years at his church in Chicago made famous by Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Black Liberation theology was first formed on July 31, 1966 (See June 7, 2020 FOOD FOR THOUGHT post).

If you take a look at the Black Lives Matter Twitter feed, you’ll find photos of activists wearing shirts that say, “Assata Taught Me.” Assata Shakur, who has been living in exile in Cuba for over thirty years, is a hero to communist revolutionaries for her involvement in the 1960s and 1970s with a violent, criminal Black Panther Party offshoot called the Black Liberation Army. Shakur and the group robbed several banks as a revolutionary act and eventually killed a New Jersey State Trooper with his own gun after a highway stop in 1973.

The group known as Black Lives Matter, which met with Barack Obama and largely have been given a free pass by the media, has skyrocketed to national prominence after its involvement with unrest and rioting in Ferguson, Mo., Baltimore, Md. and a recent takeover of events surrounding the death of George Floyd. Not only have the leaders of the Democratic Party refused to condemn the violent movement, they’ve desperately tried to embrace it. In the age of Barack Obama, where Democrats thrive on division and embrace a racial justice narrative, this isn’t surprising.

In the summer of 2015, the DNC passed a resolution in solidarity with the movement. BLM later rejected it. It read: “The DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming Black Lives Matter and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children.” The day after the resolution was passed, BLM activists in Minneapolis chanted, “pigs in a blanket, fry em’ like bacon,” as they marched down the street. This rhetoric also came just one day after the execution of Texas Sheriff Deputy Daron Goforth while he was filling up his patrol car at a local gas station. If you aren’t familiar, ‘pigs in a blanket” refers to the bodies of dead police officers in body bags.

We now live in an age where the racial divide is growing. Tensions are further provoked by extensive news coverage and viral videos being uploaded and shared among social media outlets: anti-political corrective rhetoric, the burning of the American flag, the killing of Black men by police, both justified and unjustified, and the list goes on and on. Out of the controversy, a movement and organization consisting predominantly of young Black people but not lacking in white members and minorities who agree with the cause, has dominated national news coverage and gained wide support and justification throughout the nation. On the other hand, the Black Lives Matter movement has also been largely condemned by an increasing amount of Americans, principally for their methods of protest. The destruction of property, numerous burnings of American flags, and violent acts against both civilians and law enforcement has not only been detrimental to the supposed purpose of the Black Lives Movement, but has painted a picture of them in the eyes of the nation that they are doing little for positive change.

The constant justification of BLM’s methods they are receiving from sympathizers and enablers is doing little else but encouraging these methods to actually increase, despite how ineffective history has shown such methods to actually be. It’s a new form of tyranny, and we can only hope that sooner than later history can be learned from and logic and freedom can counter the madness.

“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” Category

When working people marched on the capital in Lansing, Michigan to demand the governor open up the state so they could go back to work, Governor Lockdown threatened arrest because of the lack of social distancing. The next thing you know  Governor Lockdown is out demonstrating to defund the police with a total lack of any social distancing.

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is facing backlash after saying he will “never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.” He and his wife now cannot apologize enough for his remark. This just enforces my contempt for the NFL. I haven’t watched a NFL game since they let Michael Vick back into the league. I’m a dog lover and what he did was despicable. He is no role model for young children. However, it’s all about money.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

Elmer Fudd’s constitutional rights have been violated. When they took away his gun, they violated his Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Who will be next? Yosemite Sam?

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Orion over Argentine Mountains
Image Credit & Copyright: Nicolas Tabbush

Explanation: Do you recognize the constellation of Orion? It may be harder than usual in today’s featured image because the camera has zoomed in on the center, and the exposure is long enough to enhance nebulas beyond what the unaided human eye can see. Still, once you become oriented, you can see Orion’s three belt stars lined up vertically near the image center, and even locate the familiar Orion Nebula on the upper left. Famous faint features that are also visible include the dark Horsehead Nebula indentation near the image center, and the dusty Flame Nebula just to its right. Part of the Orion-encircling Barnard’s Loop can also be found on the far right. The image combines multiple sky-tracking shots of the background in different colors with a single static foreground exposure taken at twilight — all captured with the same camera and from the same location. The picturesque scene was captured early last year from mountains in San Juan, Argentina.
