Failing Our Young

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Matthew 26:52

There are some adults in America who would like to ignore the fact that we are failing our young.

As we watched the devastating aftermath of another mass shooting in another American school, no one can deny that changes have to be made in how we treat mass murders in this country.

Too many times have we dropped the ball and pointed our fingers in the direction to others rather than looking at ourselves as adults and ask the question, “Are our young worth saving?”

And the answer to the question is yes.

Our young are not responsible for allowing elected officials to pass  gun legislature that go against their well-being, safety and life.

In the past when school shootings have occurred, politicians go back to business as usual ignoring the elephant in the room. As a matter of fact, the elephant disappears entirely from their sight.

But, this recent mass shooting in Parkland , Florida has ignited a different kind of fire that has been lit by the young and the flames are not going to be extinguished as in the past.

The voices of young people who have been personally affected by gun violence in Parkland, Florida are taking action and placing it on the doorsteps of every elected official (local, state and national) as well as to, President Trump, who are beholden to the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Those in the position to make drastic changes to gun laws need to listen as these young people are telling adults that using the Second Amendment as an excuse, is over with.

The young will soon be of voting age and what they are experiencing from tone-deaf adults who keep voting back into office the likes of NRA lackeys is that their power will soon be taken away from them.

Lastly, what we are learning from these courageous young voices is for adults to get out of their way and let them have their day to do what adults refuse to do.

Stand up to the NRA.

Lest We Forget: The Nixon Years

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. Psalm 12:8

Lest we forget: The Nixon Years.

America has a very short memory. Especially when it comes to evil men we have elected in the past to represent our special interest.

We have only been in this New Year for eight days (Jan 8th) and this current administration seems to want to purge from America any group of people who are not white and speak their kind of English.

Trump is a racist and bigot and his actions prove it daily. He has no intention of seeing people of any race, nationality, ethnicity or religion live in love and peace.

It is because of Trump that the world is seeing the underbelly of what a Trumpster really is all about.

Deporting those under DACA, Haitians and now Salvadorans is just the tip of the iceberg.

If Trump had his way he would even find a way to send us black folks back to Africa.

Trump is the product of his upbringing.

The draining of the swamp actually was never meant for the lobbyists or political money operatives but rather a code word for the alt-right and MAGA followers.

But with ever evil man comes a righteous one who will show who really has the power.

Just ask  those who are still alive who followed Nixon blindly how his paranoid ambitions to control Americans with fear, deceit and lies nearly destroyed democracy.

His downfall was at his own hands and so will Trump see the same fate.

Nixon the Secret Story

Grand Old Party of Pedophiles

Matthew 18:6 – But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

The announcement that Donald J. Trump is endorsing candidate Ray Moore for Senate should be of no surprise to anyone.

The fact that many of the GOP politicians who declared that the women who were sexually harassed by Moore were credible have now changed their tune.

I used to think that the Republican Party had at least some variance of respectability. But that has all changed since the Grand Old Party are enablers of Pedophiles.

It is a disgrace that America has been pulled into a swamp of spineless and self-serving men and women who once spoke of family values and morality.

These people are despicable!

The Grand Old Party can now announce that they are the Grand Old Party of Pedophiles.

Trump has ruined the Republican Party and is tearing this nation into tatters (thought I use one of 45 tweets word that he accused the FBI of being)

With Alabama having its Senatorial election within a week, the world is watching to add another pin to the downward spiral of a once credible nation

In addition to the GOP disgraceful support for Moore the Republican senate and congress passed tax cuts for the wealthy while hiking taxes for the poor. And I am of the opinion that this heartless move will eventually bring their power to a final end in 2018.

I hate to think about what is happening without admitting that Trump and his puppet master Steve Bannon has done what they set out to do. Divide and destroy America.

So here we are in 2017 witnessing Pedophile enablers in the Republican Party.

And this is all for the sake of winning a seat in the senate by losing their very soul.

This video Roy Cohn-The CIA Pedophile Ring Leader– might be of interest to you. It is about Roy Cohn who was the mentor of Donald Trump. Roy Cohn was a evil man and he also was responsible for setting up a CIA pedophile ring for reasons you will soon find intriguing and sickening.


Black Tuesday

Psalms 55:23 – But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

Why should I be surprised or any rational individual be taken aback with the defense of Roy Moore by the president of the United States.

Never mind that Roy Moore encounters with teenage girls as young as 14 years of age when he was an adult man in his thirties should be considered criminal. No way should anyone in their right mind even believe that these young girls were not the real one’s responsible for their own actions.

And imagine the thought that  these dastardly deeds that were done by Roy Moore is causing the Republicans a problem if he doesn’t get elected so that the president and his cronies can get that big tax windfall off the backs of middle and low-income Americans.

With one of the president’s senior advisers stating yesterday on television that the agenda is about passing the tax bill and not about young girls being sexual harassed and manipulated by candidate Moore.

President Trump gave his support for this sexual predator and came off more now to the world as an oxymoron when in the same breath spoke about women who are coming out with stories of being molested in the workplace. His words,,,“Women are very special,” he said. “I think it’s a very special time, a lot of things are coming out, and I think that’s good for our society, and I think it’s very, very good for women, and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out.”

The unfortunate thing about today is that we can now claim it as another Black Tuesday.

It seems more evident than ever that Trump nor some of his die-hard Christian followers are in any way interested in the protection and security of women, much less, young teenage girls.

As Trump was making his support and declaration for Moore in the background his wife walked away from the cameras. This is telling in so many ways. Even his daughter would not throw her support behind Moore.

Now we have a matching pair of black Tuesdays.

Is Nationalism the Other Genocide?

They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause. Psalm 109:3

White nationalist groups march in Shelbyville chanting ‘closed borders’ Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017. Natalie Allison/USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee

I have a question to pose to you today.

Is Nationalism the Other Genocide?

I asked this question because nationalism is spoken about as if it merely means one’s national pride and origins (birth place).

Even the meaning of populist seems to be mischaracterized,

But nationalism is really becoming troubling because in my viewpoint, it is the new code word for ethnic cleansing.

We have to face the fact that White Nationalist groups popping up out of nowhere is by no means a surprise to agencies who track the actions of hate groups.

These groups who demand an all-white nation were just waiting for the right person to give approval of their hate. And that person is our president. Donald J. Trump.

People are trying to be polite or brush-off the notion that a rational nation could never be caught committing ethnic cleansing. But let me tell you that ethnic cleansing is really taking place right under our noses here in America.

Our biggest problem right now is that we have been so distracted by changing headlines we forget that the Trump administration is not only attempting to remove everything that President Obama did doing his two-terms.

But Trump has put a dog whistle to his lips to get white Americans to believe they are the sovereign heirs to everything in this country.  Despite the fact that America was and is what it is by the sacrifice of many people of all colors and background.

The ethnic makeup of America is what makes America.

Americans who believe that nationalism means one color and that one color has the right to dictate who stays or remains in this country is a very dangerous step to make seeing that the white population is slowly diminishing into a diversity of many colors.

As we look to the new coming year there is a sense that Trump will have pretty much destroyed the very fiber in which we are woven as a melting-pot.

We ought to be very conscious about what we are reading and hearing as it relates to the words nationalism and populism.

The very thought of another Hitler Germany in 2018 isn’t to far-fetch as many want to  deny.

United We Kneel

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. Psalm 12:8

On Sunday, we saw Vice President Pence walked out of the Indianapolis football game because several football players from the opposing team had kneeled during the national anthem.

Then up steps the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones declaring that if anyone on his team disrespect the flag they will not play.

Can we say hypocrites!

It is evident that President Trump has put the wrong messaging on why these football players are kneeling. And the truth of the matter is it isn’t about the American flag, our military or the National Anthem.

These men are kneeling to highlight those  police officers throughout America who have neither remorse nor concern about the killing of black men, women and children. And in many instances when the police officers are guilty of killing black people, they get off with a slap on the wrist and a “good job Charlie” salute or at times, a promotion.

What is overlooked by some white Americans is that the truth about black folks in America is most oftentimes written and spoken with untruths. American history books bear evidence of this fact.

A change of wording, dates and descriptions of black history has been so distorted that it had to be recovered to bring light on the truth.

It never ceases to amaze me that these so-called died in the wool patriots are not veterans nor have they served one day in the military for this country. They like to boast about America. They like to wear army fatigue and wave the American flag. But the majority of these patriots don’t realize that their freedom to discriminate and harass is because of some of those minorities they refuse to live or work among.

Now, we have Mike Pence who is no more than a shadow puppet of Trump showing his disrespect for the right of American football players to kneel and protest in silence. They haven’t gone out and burnt any American flags or refuse to do their jobs. No! They are only doing what this administration refuses to accept.

Their right to be 100% American citizens with all rights and privileges afforded to them as human-beings and wage earners.

The only way this nation will ever heal is to first face its ugly past and present.

United we kneel. Kneel for equality!

The Filtering of America: Legal Immigration

Matthew 25:35 – For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

One of President Trump’s advisors is the infamous Stephen Miller. This young man appears to have a true heartfelt resentment against people who don’t look, speak or think like the “Trump” base.

In other words, Stephen Miller seems to be about turning the hand of time back to what he may believe was an all white nation.

America has never been predominately Caucasian, and that is a record of fact. Nor has only Caucasians been responsible for the building and prosperity of this nation.

We the people of all nationalities, races, ethnic and gender makeup have contributed to making this nation great and powerful.

So, when Trump and his advisors, i.e., Bannon and Miller push their white nationalist agenda on the American people, their needs to be an outcry from all corners of this nation.

Just yesterday during the daily White House briefing, Mr. Miller got into a heated discussion with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta over the new Immigration policy  Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act.

What is an affront to any person with common sense, Miller was saying that this proposed RAISE Act will be “saving jobs for minorities and black people.”

This ploy of using a handy “race card” to get a pass to discriminate against other ethnic groups do not play well with blacks folks…and it never will.

We got to recognize that the filtering of America is only a underhanded way to play the discrimination card. And Trump is the head dealer.

Not only are we looking to see our diversity disappear but the proposed RAISE Act is just another wedge issue that will tear us apart rather than find ways of uniting us.

We should always remember that Americans for the most part are immigrants (and former slaves) who lives were shaped by our past generations coming from all parts of the world, as Ireland, England, Germany, Africa, Israel, Middle East, Poland, Cuba, India, Asia, Mexico, South America,  West Indies, Italy and many other countries in this world.

Finally, I will say this. If anyone can unite us it sure isn’t man on earth but Christ in heaven.

The Bible has a lot to say about immigrants and immigration.  In fact, the Hebrew word ger, the closest word to our concept of an immigrant, appears 92 times in the Old Testament alone.   We encourage you to do a Bible study on the topic of immigrants in Scripture…more (World Relief)

God is not Deaf nor Blind

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?  Psalm 10:1

The healthcare bill being put out by the GOP senate by its leader Senator Mitch McConnell is no better than his colleague, Congressman Paul Ryan.

I could put together a blog stating my disappointment and disgust as to how these men (and including President Donald J. Trump) could live with the decisions they are making to turn from the sick, poor and elderly to give to the rich.

The best reaction to these men is what does God have to say about men like these who believe that they can do anything they want and get away with it. God’s answer is below.

Psalm 10 NIV (New International Version)

1 Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by[b] him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.

16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

One thing we know is this.

God is not Deaf nor Blind.

Disabled Advocates Forcibly Removed from Senate Protest

No Mexicans, No Minorities, No Muslims

Acts 17:26 – And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

In the year 2000, there was a play titled, No Niggers, No Jews, No Dogs. This American work of penmanship was written by playwright John Henry Redwood.

Then in 2014, playwright Tom O’Brien wrote the two-act play, No Blacks, No Dogs, No Poles.

I bring up these two plays because of the racial and social divide that is taking place right here in America in 2017.

As we start off this new week, I am constantly reminded that I am a child of God and that no weapon form against me shall prosper.

Yet, in my heart, I am sadden when I witness crowds of adoring Trump followers bask in his ignorant rants and speeches about building walls, seizing illegal immigrants and deporting them and denying entrance to Muslims because of where they live.

And all his speeches are what can be considered, “dog whistles,” to his voting base.

He has also continually gone after the press by questioning their credibility and labeling certain news outlets as being fake news.

But the greatest of his offenses is that this man is a blatant liar and these are the lies (which he tells continually) that he consistently throws out to the public that all Muslims are terrorists, all Mexicans are bad people and are illegally living here and all Minorities are poor, uneducated, living in urban areas and are dangerous.

To be honest, I have had my filled of Donald Trump and his divisive antics. He has put more toxicity in the atmosphere that it has polluted the hearts and minds of people living outside of America.

But Trump can’t take total responsibility for his irresponsible behavior. His followers are just as guilty for supporting and pushing his agenda…and I might say, with much glee.

A good friend who passed away a few years ago had a saying that resonates today.

“When you point one finger at someone…four fingers are pointing back at you.”

Americans who bear hate and discord will eventually pay a heavy price. I just pray that they abandon their over joy of demeaning and trying to destroy their fellow human-beings before it is too late.

We got to face the truth that hate is the cornerstone of sin.

Will Trump followers abandon this man of lies?

I doubt it. Even when the facts are in front of them they would prefer to believe his lies.

So for those who are not fooled by Donald Trump, I ask you to take time to pray.

And after praying, just think on this title for a few more moments.

No Mexicans, No Minorities, No Muslims.

It will just be a matter of time when the title will change to other races, ethnic groups, genders or those of different religions.

Isaiah 10:1-3


Woe to those who enact evil statutes And to those who constantly record unjust decisions, So as to deprive the needy of justice And rob the poor of My people of their rights, So that widows may be their spoil And that they may plunder the orphans.

Trump’s FCC Blocks ISPs from Giving Low-Income Families Web Access

Guess what folks.

We need to know what is taking place everyday that Donald J. Trump is president.

President Trump has been in office now for nearly three weeks and his actions to disrupt Washington, D.C. is affecting we the 99 percent and not the 1 percent.

This president  also had his appointees in federal agencies and bureaus to make major removal of regulations that were set in place during the Obama administration to help the middle and low-income wage earners.

Do you know what is most irritating to date is that mainstream media is too busy focusing on the comedy and not the back end of the joke. And the joke isn’t funny.

If you enjoy using your internet service it may not be so welcoming in the future.

If the FCC Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has anything to do with it. He is slowly dismantling beneficial programs such as Lifeline broadband services and widening the gap of the digital divide for school children in poor school districts. Even the cost of families making calls to their loved ones in prison are faced with rising costs if Pai has his way to look out for his corporate cronies.

As a matter of fact, the newly appointee FCC chairman apparently is all about looking out doing business with business and for business. Mr. Pai is well known for being an opponent of Net-Neutrality.

We need to know the facts of this administration. Donald Trump is no friend of the working class or poor.

So folks, as the old saying goes, “if you don’t ask, you won’t know.” We need to be questioning every detail of President Trump agenda and how it is and will affect all Americans.

We need to know about what is taking place in all the federal agencies and bureaus.

And we need to make calls, send emails and tweets to let Mr. Pai at the FCC be aware about the changes he is attempting to push through will not go unanswered.

Please share this information with your family, neighbors community leaders and school districts.
