The Left's Agenda
Remember what seems like 100 years ago? It was really just four years ago, but that's when Colin Kaepernick made headlines for refusing to stand during the national anthem.
Look at this photo. It wasn't that long ago when "Kap" was mostly on his own disrespecting our flag and our country. But then powerful progressive forces rallied around him. It is clear now that Kaepernick's kneeling was just the first skirmish in what's become an assault against everything we hold dear.
Just a few days ago, the National Women's Soccer League held its first game since the coronavirus pandemic began. Look at this picture. That's what happens when disrespecting your country becomes the chic new thing to do.
Are you ready to join the kneelers?
The left has vehemently resisted any effort to secure our borders. Many say there should be no borders at all. When law enforcement authorities tried to arrest criminal illegal aliens, a powerful movement sprung up. They demanded that Immigration and Customs Enforcement – better known as ICE – be abolished.
Fast forward to this year and the start of the Covid pandemic. Left-wing governors and mayors rushed to close your business and your church. But they insisted that abortion mills be allowed to stay open because they provided "essential services."
And what about now? The radicals who wanted to abolish ICE want to abolish the police too.
Left-wing politicians who insisted your church close cheered as hundreds of thousands of people poured into our streets protesting the police. They continued to cheer as some of those protests degenerated into rioting, looting and attacks on America's monuments.
This is the left's agenda: Borders erased, American heroes canceled, churches shuttered and nobody on the phone when the mob is at your door and you're frantically calling 9-11.
Are the American people who defeated German Nazis and Soviet communism going to bend our knee at the feet of these forces of destruction?
By the way, Tehran is cheering the anti-American radicals who are destroying our monuments and memorials. Lotfollah Dezhkam, a representative of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said last week, "The shout of the Iranian nation, which has been leading the fight against America for 40 years, is being heard from the mouths of the Americans themselves: 'Death to America!'" Thank you, progressives.
It's no exaggeration to say America is at a tipping point.
The Smear Continues
The Deep State has once again joined the left to try to smear the Trump/Pence Administration. The mantra this time is that Trump knew Russia was putting bounties on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and didn't do anything about it.
While yet another conspiracy theory takes over the American media, I thought today would be a good time to remind you about Qasem Soleimani.
On January 2nd, President Trump was told that Soleimani, the director of Iranian terrorism in the Middle East and around the world, was meeting with other terrorists in Iraq. Soleimani had the blood of thousands of U.S. citizens, including our men and women in the military, on his hands.
The president had just a few minutes to decide whether Soleimani should be taken out. Trump made the decision, and a drone obliterated this mass murderer from the face of the earth.
Virtually every one of the leftists currently attacking Trump because he didn't do anything about Russian bounties roundly condemned him for taking out Iran's terrorist mastermind. They accused Trump of "war crimes." They accused him of assassinating a foreign military leader without declaring war.
Why is not one mainstream reporter pointing out the left's obvious hypocrisy?
And what exactly is it that Trump's critics want him to do about whatever did or did not happen in Afghanistan? Do they want him to declare war on Russia ? The idea that any of these progressives would be tough on Russia is laughable.
Trump wants to get our troops out of Afghanistan, but he gets criticized for that too.
A Big Win
Religious liberty and school choice won big today at the Supreme Court. The case arose after the Montana Supreme Court invalidated a program that provided tax credits for donating to a scholarship program for private schools.
Montana terminated the program after liberal judges ruled it was illegal because religious schools also participated in the scholarship program. Chief Justice John Roberts ruled that the Montana Supreme Court violated the First Amendment by discriminating against religious schools.
Roberts declared, "A State need not subsidize private education. But once a State decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools solely because they are religious."
That may seem like a simple principle. But the case was decided by a slim 5-to-4 majority, which just shows how precarious religious liberty is in America today.
Ready To Kneel?
Have you seen the news about Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who pointed guns at peaceful Black Lives Matter protestors? Well, that's how the mainstream networks are spinning it, and, of course, it's a false narrative.
ABC and NBC essentially presented the McCloskeys as racists. In fact, the "peaceful protesters" had broken down the gates to their community. When Mark saw what was happening, he warned the marchers that they were trespassing on private property. The crowd became belligerent and threatened him. Several protesters were also armed.
"We were told that we would be killed, our home burned and our dog killed. We were all alone facing an angry mob," McCloskey said.
So, Mark went back inside and he and his wife got their guns and protected their house. Now they are being demonized by Google-funded think tank tyrants, while the protesters who threatened them are being portrayed as saints.
By the way, Mark McCloskey is a civil rights lawyer, currently representing a client who claims he was assaulted by the police. He told local media, "I'm not the enemy of people who really care about Black lives, but I'm apparently the enemy of the terrorists and the Marxists that are running this organization."
I know one thing the McCloskeys could have done that would have made them heroes to the left. They could have gone outside and knelt at the feet of protesters and said, "We are begging forgiveness for our sin of being successful. We repent for our country, and we want to atone for the sins of our ancestors."
If they had done that rather than exercised their Second Amendment rights, they would be getting praise from the cultural writers and editorialists.
I won't kneel before the mob, and I know you won't either.
