Both series were a sham, a shame, and a scheme to make living Americans feel guilt for slavery! It was an attempt to provide a face to the curse of slavery in America: that of Wanda Tucker who believes she is the ancestor of one of the 20 Angolan slaves sold in America in 1619.

She may be right but, of course, she is probably wrong. However, the paper—with missionary zeal—does a yeoman’s job to support her dreams, desires, and delusions even though it is a hopeless and impossible task.

Wanda is an ordained Baptist minister and college professor whose grandiose aspirations for a slave connection, if accepted as true, might promote her into historical significance. She has about the same chance of proving her famous ancestry as one of the ranting Democrats has of becoming President.

Angola is a huge nation roughly an 800 mile square along Africa’s western Atlantic Coast made up of rugged highlands, a huge plateau, farmlands, a desert, and mountains. It is rich in wild animal life such as giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, gorillas, chimpanzees, black rhinoceros, wildebeests, lions, hyenas, and leopards.

It also has a vast number of two-legged animals known as political leaders although they are thugs, thieves, and totalitarians. The nation is run by former general Joao Lourenco who was trained in Moscow; and the media, the money, and the military are controlled by him and the Marxist People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). Protestors are not treated well.

The country is rich in precious gems, metals, diamonds, gold, iron, cotton, coffee, and plenty of farmland. The nation has abundant natural resources, and it ranks among the highest of the oil-producing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the oil revenues go to the government resulting in a long simmering reaction toward the money grabbers.

The first of the lengthy series with a substantial amount of errors, exaggerations, and embellishments is loaded with feel-good revisionist history to give Blacks a feeling of importance and produce a wagonload of guilt on living Whites who have no culpability.

The article was headed, “Wanda Tucker’s spiritual journey to where the slave trade began.” No, that despicable trade started thousands of years earlier and race had nothing to do with it. Slavery was usually a result of wars and most slaves have been white.

Continuing Tucker’s search for her ancestor, Deborah Barfield Berry and Kelley Benham French, added, “Wanda’s family invokes a deep sense of pride whether it is provable or not.” How can one have pride, especially a “deep sense of pride” in an illusion or maybe delusion; for sure, not a conclusion?

The authors opined, “Her academic training never undermined her faith in her family’s history. Just because it wasn’t on paper didn’t mean it wasn’t true.” However, there is not a scintilla of proof that it was her family’s history. Moreover, it is also possibly true that one of the Socialist candidates could become president but don’t bet the farm on it.

The white Portuguese officials in Angola traded guns in return for slaves and with superior weapons, black chiefs captured and sold natives on a far larger scale providing funds to provoke intertribal warfare that produced even more slaves.

We are told “Historians had learned fairly recently that the first African-Americans had been captured here.” Note captured, but not captured by black chiefs and sold to unscrupulous Portuguese slavers. The article did not mention that Angola was the home of Anthony Johnson, a black man who became a large landowner in Jamestown and owned many slaves, including some Whites. Just an oversight.

The article managed to work in a criticism of President Trump’s comments on Baltimore’s problems and his criticism of the four “women of color.” Wanda allegedly thought of all that and “saw brown children in cages at the U.S. and Mexico border. She saw black boys being shot in the street.”

No, Wanda “saw” none of that. In her mind’s eye she saw what she wanted to see—what she was looking for.

Wow, such literary gymnastics deserve a Pulitzer Prize but since Trump is blamed for mass shootings, the border mess, bad race relations, and the coming recession, that’s reasonable to everyone gazing at their navel standing in far left field. After all, everyone knows President Trump is responsible for sunspots, dandruff, bad weather, arthritis, and hot flashes.

The USA TODAY article opined about the black “queen” “Njinga, who came to power [in the 1600s]…is the most awe-inspiring of the Angolan ancestors….Something stirred in Wanda, seeing an entire country honor a black woman for her leadership and strength.” Njinga was ambassador to the Portuguese and later assumed power over the kingdoms after the death of her brother.

The august paper did not reveal that many believe that Njinga was involved with her brother’s suicide and that was the reason Portuguese officials refused to honor her right to succeed her dead brother. Nor that she took control of her brother’s young son then allegedly had him killed for his “impudence.” Nor did the article reveal Njinga was a self-crowned “queen” and according to Jewish feminist Aurora Levins Morales, “she was also an elite woman living off the labor of others, murdered her brother and his children, fought other African people on behalf of the Portuguese, and collaborated in the slave trade.”

However, the self-made queen was “awe-inspiring” according to the paper.
The notorious Marquis de Sade’s Philosophy in the Boudoir, reveals how Njinga was a woman who “immolated her lovers.” De Sade’s reference for this comes from History of Zangua, Queen of Angola. This book claims that after Njinga became queen, she acquired an all-male harem who were forced to dress in women’s clothing—as did her male servants. According to Rejected Princesses, the men “fought to the death in order to spend the night with her and, after a single night of lovemaking, were put to death.”

USA Today identified Njinga as “awe-inspiring;” however, my takeaway from the article was that slavery was primarily perpetuated by Americans and peculiarly done by Whites and both concepts are dishonest, divisive, and destructive to Black-White relations. It seems anything black is acceptable, approvable, even to be applauded; anything white is to be considered privileged, pampered, and predictable.

But don’t honest, sane people consider that racism? No, those who discriminate against truth have no problem accepting such disingenuousness.

Such articles in the leftist media are a sham, a shame, and a scheme to make minorities feel good about their ancestral past. Even if true, that doesn’t provide cover for not accepting their personal and collective failures in the present.

No wonder America is a mess—because historians, writers, and the media fail to follow the principled maxim—never report a lie and never refuse to publish the truth. Moreover, for a newspaper to kill so many trees to promote a warped version of history to further their leftist ideology is both disgusting and hypocritical.

But the fake news groups are used to that.

I hope Wanda discovers she is a descendant from one of the original black slaves but she doesn’t really need that since she has already proved that she doesn’t need to be propped up by anyone, anything, anyhow.

USA Today and New York Times’ 1619 Project a Sham, a Shame, and a Scheme! http://donboys.cstnews.com/usa-today-and-new-york-times-1619-project-a-sham-a-shame-and-a-scheme http://donboys.cstnews.com/usa-today-and-new-york-times-1619-project-a-sham-a-shame-and-a-scheme#respond Wed, 04 Sep 2019 20:09:36 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2408 Major papers such as USA TODAY, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and others have initiated major efforts to celebrate 400 years since the first Blacks were sold at Jamestown—a 1619 Project. They pull off the scab of slavery in prose, poetry, and pictures, a story often with pathos, pain, and prejudice. It seems to me that they have a clear agenda: tie Trump (and all Whites) to slavery with all its curses and promote reparations thereby satisfying all the race baiters and Progressives—but then I repeat myself.

I remind my readers that The New York Times editor recently admitted, “Look, we blew it on Russian collusion, didn’t work. Now we’re going to go to racism, that’s our new model. The next two years will be Trump and racism.” That secretly recorded confession was followed with the slavery series.

It’s called, “guilt by association” but Trump was not associated with slavery—neither was I.

The Times’ Nikole Hannah-Jones revealed in her “America Wasn’t a Democracy, Until Black Americans Made It One,” their second duplicitous motive, “If nothing else, I hope it shows the world that a bipartisan commission to study the issue of reparations is necessary and way past due.”

Bingo! A nefarious admission.

The Times’ series is interesting with some good information but is generally a handbook for radical racists who have more zeal than knowledge and more time than discretion.

Principled writers resolve to never write a lie and never refuse to publish the truth; however, this author has failed to honor that concept. She has woven disturbing truth with much error to express a racist agenda—blame Whitey and generalize leaving a scent of truth regarding the vile world of slavery to paint all living Whites as villains and all living Blacks as victims.

Nikole charged, “the United States simply would not exist without us.” That is an asinine, arrogant, and not accurate statement but she will not be required to give an account for such shallow and untrue balderdash because she is a minority and can plead the prestige of the Times. Of course, Virginia landowners would have been forced to work smaller tobacco farms, plant other crops, and make a smaller profit with the white indentured servants who quickly worked out of their contracts. Additionally, we would not have the positive and negative contributions that accrued from slavery.

Wiping the Kool-Aid from her quivering lips the author declared that black slaves “made Wall Street a thriving banking, insurance and trading sector and New York City the financial capital of the world.” If black slaves were essential to our success, why has that not happened in any other nation on earth? She failed to point out any African nation that is stable, secure, and successful because none exists.

Repeatedly, we have been told that America’s success is because it was built and sustained upon the backs of slaves and oppressive practices. But that dog won’t hunt. If black slavery is responsible for America’s greatness, where are all the successful black nations?

The wheel was unknown to sub-Saharan Africa as late as the mid-1800s according to Oxford University Professor John Baker in his book, Race! Furthermore, the diaries of Dr. David Livingstone, famous missionary, explorer, and medical doctor in Africa (some of whose steps my wife and I have followed) describe thousands of Africans coming out of their villages to see his “vehicles in motion and thus for the first time to observe the rotation of a wheel” Are racists trying to get us to believe that a people who didn’t have the wheel less than 200 years ago could be responsible for America’s success?

Of course, admitting that unpleasant fact makes me a racist in the twisted minds of racists—black and white.

Nikole charged that our founding fathers did not believe in the Constitution because of the infamous three-fifths clause. To determine representation each slave was counted less than one. This did not apply to free Blacks. Of course, our founders believed the words; however, they knew if they were to have a union, the compromise was essential. Their words “all men are created equal” were an acknowledgement of goals that would become reality when politically possible. It has now been accomplished even to the extent it seems some minorities are more than equal.

The writer declared, “Without the idealistic, strenuous and patriotic efforts of black Americans, our democracy today would most likely look very different—it might not be a democracy at all.” Well, we are a Republic not a democracy but without quibbling over that, her self-serving statement is a senseless, silly slap on the back. She insists that Blacks have as much claim to be “founding fathers” as Jefferson, Madison, Washington! Sure.

She characterized Jefferson’s Monticello as a “forced-labor camp” but evidently, she knows nothing about such camps and little about Monticello. While her article revealed some worthwhile information, it was also a racist promotion of Black Superiority.

Gasp!

She charged that American slavery was a “brutal system of slavery unlike anything that had existed in the world before. Chattel slavery was not conditional but racial.” She was wrong, since slavery was not automatically “racial” but economic. The plantation owners did not necessarily hate the slaves, it was an economic matter—if they did not have workers, it meant financial disaster. Similar to Apartheid in South Africa, it was a matter of survival. While that did not justify the ownership of any person, race was not a determinant to slavery.

Furthermore, evidently Nikole has little knowledge of world slavery. It is common knowledge that slavery in Brazil and the Caribbean was much more oppressive than in America. While sadistic slave owners always existed, they were not the norm in America; after all, slaves were an investment. Only a fool would destroy his own “property.” Some plantation owners provided days off, bonus, and retirement plans.

Nikole suggested that America “was founded not as a democracy but as a slavocracy.” Time after time she made sweeping general statements that contain a smattering of truth but are simply incorrect, irresponsible, and inflammatory.

This series clearly teaches that only Whites can be racists and are required to be super sensitive to their innate racism; however, Blacks are never, ever racists but should always be super sensitive to and magnify their victimization. And when Whites discuss racism, they must do so in a very subservient and contrite, almost apologetic tone. That is the message of this series.

Taking a deep breath, Nikole declared, “Anti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country, as does the belief, so well articulated by Lincoln, that black people are the obstacle to national unity.” When one looks at the statements of black race baiters including leading white politicians it seems anti-white racism runs in the very DNA of America. And articles such as these only exacerbate the racial problem.

She closed her interesting, but highly biased article with, “But it was by virtue of our bondage that we became the most American of all.” Say what? “Most American of all!” Sounds exactly like, dare I say it, Black Supremacy.

No, that can’t be. Blacks always tell the truth, never twist and manipulate facts, and never express bigotry even though such people are as easily found in the media and academia as a bowling ball in a bathtub.

I ask the Times editor, “Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” A quality organization would not produce a sham, a shame, and a scheme for any reason let alone promote black supremacy and advance a political agenda!

Evangelical Leaders Are Dishonest In Pushing, Promoting, and Preaching Open Borders! http://donboys.cstnews.com/evangelical-leaders-are-dishonest-in-pushing-promoting-and-preaching-open-borders http://donboys.cstnews.com/evangelical-leaders-are-dishonest-in-pushing-promoting-and-preaching-open-borders#respond Thu, 29 Aug 2019 12:04:48 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2406 Many Evangelical leaders are dishonest in pushing, promoting, and preaching open borders and twisting Bible passages like a pretzel to support their tenuous position.

It is so tiresome to constantly hear the caterwauling from the secular and the religious left about immigration policies. On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, a lackluster and lapsed Southern Baptist, whined about the “shameful” white Evangelicals (Yes, Virginia, everything has to do with race.) “who don’t follow Jesus’ commands on Immigration.”

What Joe meant was we don’t follow his comments, concessions, and conclusions on immigration.

Poor old Joe, I feel sorry for him as he tries to keep his show on the air and keep his thousands of viewers. So, he dips into demagogy and goes after white Christians who don’t accept his twisted interpretation of Scripture to prove an unbiblical position—open borders! The Bible teaches that borders are a necessary fact of life and are reasonable, reachable, and required.

Progressives speak endlessly about “children in cages” yet have advocated, approved, and even applauded the butchering of helpless unborn babies and even voted to have them killed after birth if parents so desire.

Joe quoted an Atlantic article by Peter Wehner, a professing Conservative Christian who served in three administrations in the White House. Wehner spoke of the “core” of Christ’s message as being whether or not the poor were helped. Well, all Christians are told to help the poor, visit those in prison, give a cup of water, etc., but that is not the “core” of His message. The core is that He came to save that which was lost. Following personal salvation, a new Christian is then expected to live the new life that is within him.

Joe went on and on about how Evangelical Christians don’t think they have a responsibility to give a cup of water in Jesus name; however, no Christian is saying that. Joe and open border fanatics are saying that. While each Christian must help those in need, that has nothing to do with a government’s immigration policies that permit open borders and their land to be overwhelmed with people of known and unknown conspiracies, hatreds, creeds, and illnesses.

The Atlantic article was full of feel-good activities that are normal for Christians but not the “core” as professed. Wehner refers to Matthew 25 “where Jesus says if you want to know whether you’re going to go to heaven or not, it’s whether you help the poor.” I’m very pleased that a media person was discussing people going to Heaven; however, Wehner was singing the right melody but the wrong lyrics. He was spouting heresy with which no informed person would agree.

Helping the poor has nothing to do with going to Heaven. Helping the poor is a normal result of knowing Christ in a personal way.

Wehner told of his viewing the results of Hurricane Katrina and noticed the “evangelical organizations” that were doing a good job but he added, “This is a pretty radical departure.” No, it is what real Christians have done for 2000 years! Wehner is obviously uninformed about how history shines a bright light on Christians in time of disaster, disease, and death—when Christians fed the injured, gave water to fevered victims, even carried out the bedpans while unbelievers fled for safety.

Julian the Apostate, Roman Emperor during the fourth century, was the first to note, “Christians cared not only for their own poor but for the pagans as well.” Christian kindness, often during times of persecution, was shown to everyone, not simply their own.

Christians have always believed they had a responsibility to help others as a Christian duty, so during times of famine they shared their food; in times of sorrow they wept with the bereaved; and in times of pestilence, they nursed the sick and dying. The non-Christians and the pagans took notice of such kindness–and at a time when other institutions were damaged, discredited, and often dissolved, the Christian churches were deployed and developed. William McNeill wrote, “Pagans fled from the sick and heartlessly abandoned them.” Christians stayed and served–and died.

That’s what real Christians have always done.

Wehner wrote about Evangelicals who criticized Clinton yet “turn a blind eye to the ethical and moral transgressions of Donald Trump, but also constantly defend him?” I think his arrow missed its target because the Christians I know haven’t turned a blind eye toward Trump and don’t “constantly defend him.” We admit Trump has a sordid, sorry, and sinful past and has present problems yet he must have support to do the job he was elected to do. We did the same with Clinton and Obama—supporting them when possible while also holding their feet to the fire. Trump is running a nation, not leading a prayer meeting.

Wehner mentions that people who are strong on family values are so eager to give a man “with a sordid personal and sexual history” a mulligan as in golf, “not counting that one.” I don’t give Trump a mulligan but do give him space to protect Americans and fulfil his difficult job.

In an earlier Atlantic article Wehner dealt with how Pete Buttigieg’s “faith” will impact his presidential aspirations. Again, he charged Evangelicals with not “holding Trump accountable.” While there may be such a crowd, I don’t know of any influential leaders who would be so negligent. Reasonable appreciation for America-first leadership does not mean Trump is not recognized as a very flawed person.

Wehner goes off the rails when he opines, “None of Trump’s high-profile evangelical supporters speak out against his cruelty and dehumanizing style, his pathological lying and bullying manner, or his Nietzschean ethic—and in some instances they celebrate it.” No, most of us hold our noses and are embarrassed with some of Trump’s antics; however, no matter how offensive, he is far better for our nation than Hillary. And at least, Trump is keeping his promises to nominate conservative judges, reduce taxes, cut regulations, defund abortion, salvage religious freedom, drain the swamp, etc. But then, maybe some of these Evangelical writers and religious leaders don’t want such reform.

Buttigieg’s insistence that the “Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction” was a “bright-red flag, and ought to worry Christians regardless of their politics” rightly confessed Wehner, the Evangelical. Progressive—as in free college tuition, free health care, free health care for illegal immigrants, voting by prisoners and immigrants, acceptance of the LGBTQ agenda, abortion up to and after birth, reparations for Blacks, etc.

Progressivism is retrogression into a dark, dismal, and dangerous past and no sane person wants to go there. Progressivism is certainly not biblical but desperate leftists think pleading a bogus biblical position will give them much needed credibility.

It doesn’t.

Hatred is Hatred Whether From the Left or Right! http://donboys.cstnews.com/hatred-is-hatred-whether-from-the-left-or-right http://donboys.cstnews.com/hatred-is-hatred-whether-from-the-left-or-right#respond Wed, 21 Aug 2019 18:39:21 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2402 The Reverend Not-so-Sharpton stood with his hands extended high and wide saying, “I hate white people this much.” But Sharpton is not considered a hater. He was much sought after by 12 of the Democrat presidential candidates who made the pilgrimage to his humble abode to kiss his ring.

When it was time to renew his television show, his credentials were examined (but the ratings were ignored) and yes, he was qualified because he is still black. That seems to be the reason Al is a television star. Al is paid $500,000 annually by MSNBC for his television work and he pays himself over $200,000 from his civil rights non-profit organization.

You might think that a television star with a net worth of up to $5 million and annual income of over $700,000 could pay his bills but Al still owes $4.5 million in state and federal taxes and he often forgets “to pay travel agencies, hotels, and landlords,” according to the records. In 2015, Al paid almost $2 million on his back taxes.

In 2004, Al bought himself a Rolls Royce Phantom for his 50th birthday. That is the most expensive production car in the world, with a base price of $475,000.

That is one Baptist who was not held under water long enough!

Just kidding, but he is not my kind of Baptist.

A black killer in Dallas who killed five police officers and injured 14 other innocent people said, “I want to kill white people, especially white cops.” When asked if the shooting should be considered a hate crime, President Obama said, “It’s hard to know what his motives are.” Can’t Obama understand clear English? The killer was a hater and his race or political position did not matter. By being a defender of hate, does that make Obama a hater?

It seems hate is identified depending on the hater and the hatee.

A French rapper named Nick Conrad has a song titled “Hang Whites!” that declares, “I enter day care centres, I kill white babies, Grab them quickly and hang their parents, Take them apart to pass the time.” In one scene, the rapper and an associate drag a white person along a street and kick him in the head. The lyrics include calls to kill white people and their children.

That’s hate by a self-described “black artist, Parisian, proud sophisticated” or more precisely, a French jerk who shot to fame with his hate-filled “song.”

Thaddeus Matthews, Memphis disc jockey, interviewing Charlotte Bergmann, a black, female conservative Republican candidate for Congress a “token negro” and “curly-haired nigga.” He added, “I’m so sick of your sh**, yourself, and I’m about to put you’re a** up outta here,” he said. “You are a token negro that white folk have control over.” As she got up to leave, she tried to shake his hand, and he refused saying, “I don’t need to shake your hand. I’m scared because some of that whiteness might rub off on me.”

Thad, the black hater of Whites, is still a disc jockey in Memphis. Charlotte won her primary but lost in the 2018 general election.

If I say nigger—even in an innocent and nonracist way (as I do here), I’m called a racist but if an actor or rapper does so, he is an artist. I suppose that’s artistic license.

No, it is nonsense. And, for sure, no race or group “owns” some choice words.

The mother of Michael Brown (the teen thug who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson after Brown tried to take the officer’s gun) is running for city council! But momma’s comments will haunt her. She wrote on social media after two police officers were shot, “If my FAM woulda got JUSTICE in August maybe those two comps wouldn’t have got shot LAST NIGHT…” Also, “F*** THEM 2 COPS…DON’T GOT NO SYMPATHY FOR THEM OR THEY FAMILIES…Aint no FUN when the Rabbit got the GUN.”

That too is undisguised, unreasonable, and uncontrolled hate and indicates a problem in public education.

Maggie Gallagher cited a book that expresses extreme hatred toward Conservative Christians in America who “tend to hold relatively high levels of social power.” So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is There Christianophobia in the United States? was authored by George Yancey and David A. Williamson who said asked people about conservative Christians. “‘I want them [conservative Christians] all to die in a fire,’ said one man with a doctorate….‘The only good Christian is a dead Christian,’ said another man with a doctorate. ‘I abhor them and I wish we could do away with them,’ said a woman with a master’s degree. ‘A tortuous death would be too good for them,’ said a college-educated man. ‘They should be eradicated without hesitation or remorse,’ said an elderly woman with a master’s degree.”

Hate is not defined by education, race (and yes, of course Blacks can be racists), religion, national origin, politics, or financial status.

“Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” This was so eloquently spoken by white Georgetown University professor Christine Fair. Chrisy is no longer teaching at Georgetown; she is “on leave.”

No sane person will defend hate but many haters use hate as a weapon and often go into battle with Christian Conservatives. Since the progressive cannot defend his castle in ruins (Liberalism), he fires the only bullet in his possession—“You’re a hater.” That is supposed to settle the argument in favor of progressives!

Pseudo-intellectuals like Georgetown’s Michael Eric Dyson said after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the killing of Trayvon Martin that it would be a good thing for more white children to be murdered so Americans could better understand racism. Mike is also a Baptist preacher but not a historical or biblical Baptist, for sure.

Sarah Jeong is a member of The New York Times Editorial Board and wrote: “Dumba** f***ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on a fire hydrant.” Also, “Are white people predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically only being fit to live underground like groveling goblins.” Finally Sarah’s “White men are bull—”; “#CancelWhitePeople”; “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men” and “f— white women lol.”

Sarah is still with the Times!

According to a report from Newsweek, Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams is making waves again. Breitbart News reported in June 2017 that Williams had argued that first responders should have let Representative Steve Scalise die after he was shot during a practice for the congressional baseball game. Williams also shared a blog post by an anonymous author that asked black people to withhold life-saving help from white people in need.

In a recent social media post, Williams wrote that “whiteness is terrorism….If you see them [Whites] drowning. If you see them in a burning building. If they are bleeding out in an emergency room. If the ground is crumbling beneath them. If they are in a park and they turn their weapons on each other: do nothing,” the post read.

Of course, hatred is hatred whether from the left or right or in the middle; however all the haters quoted today have been from far out in left field.

This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land! http://donboys.cstnews.com/this-land-is-your-land-this-land-is-my-land http://donboys.cstnews.com/this-land-is-your-land-this-land-is-my-land#respond Wed, 14 Aug 2019 18:30:27 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2398 America is a great, grand, and glorious nation, not perfect by any calculation, but the most fair, generous, and freedom-loving nation in the world. Recently, we have heard many from left field and right field talk about our founding fathers (and mothers) and our founding documents; however, it seems much is being overlooked. Consequently, I wish to reveal the truth, causing some heartburn.

It must be remembered that I want to explain origins, not our present day. I will get to modern day America but we must look at our beginning. The farther one peers into the past will help him perceive and provide for the future.

The USA was founded by white (gasp), Christian (gasp, gasp), gun toting, homeschooling Englishmen who, after much patient frustration, fought their own ancestors to gain independence and legally became the “People of the United States.” The newly created “People of the United States” formed a nation for “Ourselves and Our Posterity” according to the first paragraph in our Constitution.

Our founders were not interested in people in other parts of the world. They were not interested in proving to the world how broadminded they were. They were not concerned for people of other regions, religions, or races, but were concerned for “ourselves and our posterity.” That meant and still does, “ourselves and people like us.”

That meant “American first!” And that was true until recent years when it seems to be selfish and vile to practice that wholesome maxim.

Were our founding fathers unloving, unkind, un-American (!) or only unthoughtful? Should they have organized a special action of Congress to seek with missionary zeal, the “tired…poor… huddled masses yearning to breathe free”? Should this struggling nation have allocated funds to bring people unlike them to the new nation to add to the diversity?

We are told that our strength is in our diversity but the fact is our strength is in our unity. It is noteworthy that African nations, China, and the Muslim nations never speak of diversity. Wonder why?

Early Americans had similar beliefs about free enterprise, similar (but not the same) beliefs about religion, the same language, and the same general culture. While having similar backgrounds was helpful in producing mutual support, sympathy, and success, it did not mean we disliked others. It only meant that whatever decisions we made, whether economic, religious, political, domestic, or foreign, the first thought was to put America first. Only a fool says otherwise.

President Donald Trump made it clear to the world during his Inauguration speech that once again the U.S. would make decisions based on the principle of putting America first. The media mavens got their knickers in a very uncomfortable knot because of that new operating principle. How dare Trump suggest such an un-American concept! To the media, the very thought is not only annoying, audacious, and aggressive, but also abrasive!

The radical leftists believe that the U.S. should put every other nation first when making decisions that affect the U.S. Of course, they don’t expect other nations to have such a stupid policy but America must never again follow policies, practices, and programs that always put America first!

American people should help other nations in times of disaster as we have always done, but U.S. political decisions should be made asking, “Will this strengthen or weaken our nation?” Then do what is best for the U.S.

It is insane to make decisions that are not beneficial to America. Would any of these non-thinkers suggest that a family should not make decisions based on what is best for them? One media darling suggested that it was racist to put America first. But then, everything seems to be racist at this time.

The Los Angeles Times pontificated, “And what would it mean if all countries are left free to pursue their narrow self interest?” Of course, all nations should be free to pursue their own interest! Have these people lost their minds or are they so saturated with leftist ideology that this is their normal reaction to reality? A responsible public official will consider all the ramifications of a matter and then do what is best for America. It is incredible that this is even debatable.

America–first, last, and always! Liberals scream “bigotry”; but most sane, sensitive, and sincere Americans believe that we don’t have to apologize for putting our national interests first and wanting to keep America, America! It does not mean that we are by nature superior to everyone else (although we probably are), nor does it mean that we wish anyone else ill. It simply means that we like what we have here, although we would like to remove the crime, hatred, perversion, abortion, etc.; but it would be abnormal if we did not want America to continue to be America. We even like to share it with others, but we won’t have it to share if we don’t maintain it!

The signers of the U.S. Constitution were white and most were Protestant. Most of the signers were “American-born and of Anglo-Saxon origin. The eight foreign-born… were all natives of the British Isles. Except for Charles Carroll, a Roman Catholic, and a few Deists, every one subscribed to Protestantism.”

There were only about 2,000 Jews in America in 1776 and in Charleston, SC, “almost every adult Jewish male fought on the side of freedom.” Moreover, a wealthy Jew Haym Salomon lent our fledging government $200,000 and was never repaid—and died bankrupt.

With the Fourteenth Amendment, people who were not like “ourselves and our posterity” became citizens; and along with our generous admission of many others, it produced discussion, debate, division, and disruption.

One of my readers suggests a striking analogy likening the U.S. to the Ship of State “owned and operated by the Posterity of the founding generation [that] has been authorized by the 14th Amendment to pick up ‘hitchhikers’ as an act of hospitality.” Over the years, many hitchhikers have come on board and many shipwrecked have been rescued and they have been received and have often made an impressive contribution to America.

There are now many recent hitchhikers on board who have forgotten their history and consequently their humility and gratitude for what America is. They have become so loud and powerful that they have lost any early vestige of appreciation. They seem to think they were “ourselves and our posterity” when they came on board much later. Some of them, members of Congress, even want to not only take over the Ship of State but also want to change its registration, the ship’s log, destination, etc. A case can be made that it amounts to a mutiny and we are sailing in a different direction toward a hostile and foreign port.

The U.S. has opened its heart and doors to permit many others who were not like “ourselves and our posterity” to be accepted among us. This has added much to our nation but not without danger. And those who have been invited on board might smile and kindly say, “Thanks.” And the mutineers? Well, they can go back to their ancestral home on the next ship.

It is treason not to put America first.

Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse Ride Red, Wild Horses! http://donboys.cstnews.com/four-horsewomen-of-the-apocalypse-ride-red-wild-horses http://donboys.cstnews.com/four-horsewomen-of-the-apocalypse-ride-red-wild-horses#respond Thu, 08 Aug 2019 00:05:54 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2394 The goal of Socialism is Communism according to Vladimir Lenin and history has proved that what may seem to be a benign even benevolent and beneficial philosophy of Socialism often becomes vicious and violent Communism with a gun. Yet all the major Democrat politicians are traveling the nation making a pitch for a Socialist government! With my eye on the future, my ear to the ground, and a finger on the pulse of America, I never expected this. This is not my father’s Democrat Party.

It seems some of the critters in congress are disingenuous, dishonest, and dangerous.

The loudest proponents of Socialism and haters of America are Democrat “women of color” in the House of Representatives. These who are the loudest and most obnoxious ones bellowing about all the racism and misogynism in America, are sitting in the most prestigious seats of power. But they still whine. But then, radical liberals—of both parties and both genders—have always been people without working brains, character, talent, and spine. But they all whine.

These leftists have plenty of mouth as our ladies of color (a racist statement) display every day. They are having their “fifteen minutes of fame” and are enjoying every minute of it while the rest of America must suffer through their shrill caterwauling—as offensive as fingernails on a chalkboard.

But then, that’s called democracy. They earned their right to be wrong, pushy, loud, and obnoxious.

The Book of Revelation tells of four allegorical horsemen, known as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse riding different colored horses (white, red, black, and pale) that represent pestilence, war, famine, and death. But Congresswomen Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley are all riding red horses. The ladies’ speeches and public statements would make Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Joseph Stalin all stand up and cheer with gusto. Furthermore, if their political policies become law, we will experience pestilence, war, famine, and death or worse.

The four ladies are ladies of color but their true color is red. They are red with rage and red in philosophy and if they continue to gain power, America will become impotent, insignificant, and maybe irrelevant.

Congresswoman Cortez (former bartender) from New York defeated a ten-term white congressman using racism and ageism to replace him. She attacked him saying he deserved to be replaced by her on “ideological, generational, and racial grounds.” Since it worked for her, she is now using the racist slander every third statement she makes to get her way.

Cortez has charged that immigrant children in border detention are drinking water from toilets and contemporary America is “garbage.”

The more she talks, the bigger Trump’s win in 2020.

Cortez’s most recent bellowing claims that “Palestinians have no choice but to riot against Israel” and agreed that Israel is “criminal.”

She has suggested that the detention facilities at our southern border are “concentration camps.” I delight in hearing her speak because she reminds me of a mediaeval court jester playing the fool to the delight of the court.

Cortez has lived with her lover, Riley Roberts in an apartment since both graduated from the prestigious Boston University. So the woman of color is a fornicator. There, I’ve said it since no one else will.

Cortez’s comrade-in-arms is Representative Ilhan Omar, Democrat from Minnesota. Omar has said that Jews run the world and she keeps her foot (left one of course) constantly in her mouth. She is anti-Israel and anti-Semitic and has refused to apologize for declaring that some Israel-friendly Congress people owed “allegiance to a foreign country.” Even a few Democrats identified the statement as “vile.”

Cowardly house members refused to censure Omar for her unfair, unprovoked, and unpopular accusation. Instead, those paragons of hypocrisy decided not to condemn Omar but to condemn all forms of hatred. Not having to criticize Omar was an act of cowardice, not principle.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, “Omar last week refused to answer whether she would denounce al Qaeda terrorists.” Say what! A member of Congress refuses to renounce terrorist groups!

Omar also supported Cortez’s claim of concentration camps on our southern border and really lost her marbles when she said illegal aliens have a right to taxpayer-funded abortions!

Omar has refused to clear up her problems with her marriage. She is alleged to have married her brother as a ruse to get him into America from Somalia. She tried to clear her murky marriage mess but made it worse when she admitted that she and Ahmed Hirsi applied for a marriage license but “we never finalized the application and thus were never legally married.” They ended their relationship in 2008 and she “entered into a relationship with a British citizen” (Ahmed Nur Said Elmi) and married him legally in 2009.

Numerous charges have been made that Elmi is actually Omar’s brother whom she married to facilitate his entrance to the U.S. but Omar refuses to clarify the matter.

They were divorced in 2011 “in our faith tradition.” That means they did not get a legal divorce as she admits, saying, “I have yet to legally divorce Ahmed” but am “in the process of doing so.” She added, “Since 2011, I am happy to say that I have been reconciled with Ahmed Hirsi, we have been married in our faith tradition and are raising our family together.” Note, she did not state that she has been legally married to her present “husband.”

A few days ago the Daily Mail revealed that Omar and “the father of her three children – have split.” The article revealed that Omar has “moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods.” When Hirsi was asked about the split, he replied, “Wow, I can’t comment on that. I’m sorry, I just can’t say anything.”

I guess not, after being married to her and siring three children; although usually a Muslim husband is dominate (boss, overlord, master, superior) but maybe Omar has special status and is an anomaly in Islam—a dominant wife.

Omar also filed joint income tax returns with her husband Ahmed Hirsi while still married to Ahmed Elmi. Obviously, Omar is in deep doo-doo.

As to her “marriage” to her brother, that is still murky and she refuses to provide any clarity. Whatever that relationship, Omar is a fellow fornicator as is Cortez.

Rashida Tlaib is a congresswoman from Michigan. Tlaib is a racist who calls other people racists as when she called Lynne Patton (a black person) a “prop” because she appeared in the gallery while the debate was going on as to whether or not Trump is a racist. Tlaib was also photographed with a Palestinian activist who praised Hezbollah and declared Israel has no right to exist.

Furthermore, Tlaib tried to rewrite history by suggesting Muslim leaders had offered Jews a “safe” haven from the Holocaust. Evidently, she has never seen photos of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem visiting with Hitler. I presume Tlaib is familiar with WWII.

Representative Rashida Tlaib said she doesn’t regret using obscene language about Trump when she vowed to “impeach the motherf***er.” It seems our ladies of color are vile, vulgar, and vicious Representatives.

Representative Ayanna Pressley is a Democrat from the Peoples’ Republic of Massachusetts whose claim to fame is her statement, “We don’t need any more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.” She was saying that Blacks who didn’t reflect her positions are not legitimate. Now THAT’S racism and insulting to all Conservative Blacks. She said that minorities need to have a “seat at the table” and said it was time to “shake that table.”

Well, from my balanced, informed, and unprejudiced point of view, I think the minorities own and control the table and too many white people of power are fearful of challenging them since minorities are considered to be “entitled” people.

The four ladies of color are irresponsible, irrepressible, and ignorant people who should be, well tending bar or serving tables, not making laws in a still-free Republic.

But they got the votes, so they can saddle up and giddy-up but true patriots will see that they have a very rough ride and hopefully get bucked off their red, high horses.

Pete Buttigieg is Wrong About Religion, Homosexuals, and Abortion! http://donboys.cstnews.com/pete-buttigieg-is-wrong-about-religion-homosexuals-and-abortion http://donboys.cstnews.com/pete-buttigieg-is-wrong-about-religion-homosexuals-and-abortion#respond Wed, 31 Jul 2019 12:49:05 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2390 Politicians have a constitutional right to be stupid but Pete Buttigieg is taking advantage of that right. Pete is wrong about religion, abortion, and homosexuality. I don’t want someone with three major failures in the White House.

In a recent conversation with USA Today, Buttigieg characterized conservative Christians as “saying so much about what Christ said so little about, and so little about what he said so much about.” Pete was using the absence of evidence argument, i.e., since Christ didn’t prohibit perversion, then criticism of LGBTQ crowd is wrong; however, that is fallacious since Christ didn’t speak about cannibalism but I assume, though not sure, that Pete would not defend it. Pete is parroting the same silly, shallow argument that Christ’s words are more important than other Scripture but that undercuts scriptural authority. If a statement is in the Bible, it is to be properly interpreted by the context.

If it is biblical, it doesn’t matter whether Christ said it or not. Moses and the Apostle Paul surely made it clear that perversion is an abnormality, an aberration and an abomination.

Pete is said to be a “devoted” Episcopalian. I’m not sure if that means he goes to church three times a week, tithes, and says grace at every meal. Professor Gary Dorrien of Union Theological Seminary said, “In our time, the Episcopal Church is a generally progressive denomination that ordains gay and lesbian bishops, makes room for liberation theology.” The denomination wandered far into left field many years ago as almost all groups do.

Their pews are empty as are their offering plates, sure signs of coming death.

The flagship church in the Episcopalian denomination is the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. One of their leaders invited a hundred Muslims to use the cathedral for Friday prayers and the church staff covered all crosses and anything that might offend the Islamists. Church officials have marched in “gay” pride parades. The church is still in good standing with the denomination and is even the most famous church in that group.

One pro Pete commentator opined, “The Episcopal Church of America accepts gay parishioners, priests, and bishops in churches that recite the Nicene Creed every Sunday and have as authentic a claim to ‘orthodoxy’ as any other church and more than many.”

No, that dog won’t hunt.

Everyone with a modicum of knowledge about history knows that all the mainline denominations give lip service to the Bible but departed from it generations ago. Moreover, Episcopalians of today are far from what they were in George Washington’s day. No denominational official is willing to admit, “As a group, we have departed from our original roots and are occupying church buildings built by people who were narrow-minded fanatics.”

Moreover, after choosing the lifestyle of homosexuals, Pete has taken on all the baggage that most homosexuals possess. Of course, a person may experience homosexual desires, but that does not mean he was created homosexual. Furthermore, because a person reacts to that desire does not make him a homosexual. It only means he is a stupid sinner, like all of us. Even the thought of unmarried sex is wrong whether abnormal or normal. Practicing homosexuals are people who were born heterosexual and are rebelling against the God-ordained plan for his or her life.

If a person has normal or abnormal sexual thoughts, it is wrong and dangerous and indicates a corrupt mind and heart. God says, “for out of it [heart] are the issues of life.” We often do what we think about.

People change all the time so counselors should not tell people they cannot change their sexual desires. Of course, they can.

In February 1992, a cover story for Newsweek featured the face of an infant and the question, “Is This Child Gay?” In July 1993, The New York Times ran a story titled, “Report Suggests Homosexuality Is Linked to Genes.” No, the child was not “gay” and homosexuality is not linked to genes.

Even left-leaning, LGBT-affirming organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association do not make the claim that people are born “gay.” In their view, the causes of same-sex attraction are complex, including both nature and nurture.

Recent research at Johns Hopkins reveals that there is no scientific support for “born that way” origins of perversion. Even some honest homosexuals declare that they were not “born that way.”

During the last twenty years, there have been eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia and all arrived at the same conclusion—homosexuals were not “born that way.” Since identical twins have the same DNA, if one is gay, then both would be. However, that happens only 11% of the time. The report reveals, “If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay.” But the proof is in the testing and the results disprove, or at least do not support “born that way.”

Pete sought to defend his choice of being a homosexual by responding to Vice President Pence saying, “a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me—your quarrel, sir, is with my creator. If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade.”

Pete is wrong. He chose to follow his inclinations, desires, etc., into the dark night of perversion and he chose to “marry” a man. And he chooses to participate is some homosexual activities. If he and other homosexuals can’t change, then how can pedophiles change? And if they can’t change, then how can putting them in jail be justified?

You can bet the farm that no reporter will ask Pete about that.

Pete is also as wrong about abortion as he is about perversion. He averred, “I don’t think we need more restrictions right now,” the mayor said. “I just believe that when a woman is in that situation and when we’re talking about some of those situations covered by that law, extremely difficult, painful, often medically serious situations where life or health of the mother is at stake, the involvement of a male government official like me is not helpful.”

The translation of the above political gobbledygook is—kill the babies. I don’t want a baby killer in the White House.

Pete also said, “Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction.” No, that is not found in the only Book that guides Christians. The Bible does not support unlimited government, high taxes, free college tuition, reparations, or climbing in bed with Muslim terrorists.

No, the Christian faith does not point in that direction. I think Mayor Pete needs to stay in South Bend and repair the potholes.

If Blacks Deserve Reparations, So Do Gays, Fundamentalists, Jews, and Others! http://donboys.cstnews.com/if-blacks-deserve-reparations-so-do-gays-fundamentalists-jews-and-others http://donboys.cstnews.com/if-blacks-deserve-reparations-so-do-gays-fundamentalists-jews-and-others#respond Thu, 25 Jul 2019 17:25:43 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2387 The stage is set: everyone can probably qualify for reparations—not only living Blacks but even “gays” and I!

According to The New York Times, the New York Police Department apologized recently to the gay community for the 1969 raid of the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village of New York City. In 1966 it became legal for LGBTQ people to be served liquor in New York City but “engaging in gay behavior in public (holding hands, kissing, or dancing with someone of the same sex) was still illegal.” New York voters wanted such activities to be forbidden and illegal as decent people have for millennia.

In recent years, normal people have been bullied, badgered, and blackmailed into accepting homosexuality as normal, even desirable. Even so, the “Stonewall riots” did not require an apology since the police were doing their job and were resisted by patrons of the inn. Sodomy was illegal and the inn was selling drinks without a liquor license—law breakers. Police also found bootleg liquor and arrested 13 people, some bar employees.

When the nine police officers tried to close the bar, a lesbian fought with them and it went into the streets where others got involved. As she was shoved into the paddy wagon, she challenged bar patrons and bystanders to get involved. They did and hundreds of people rioted and tried to set fire to the bar where police and a journalist had barricaded themselves waiting for reinforcements. Police were pelted with bottles, rocks, and a parking meter that had been torn from its foundation.

But we are led to believe by people without knowledge or commitment to truth that the bar patrons were peacefully defending their rights. For police officials to apologize for police actions at that time is sad, shocking, and shameful.

There were six days of violent clashes in the neighborhood between bar patrons and police officers; however, almost every media story makes the homosexual lawbreakers the good guys and police as the bad guys. More fake news—so, what else is new?

This resistance by homosexuals is widely credited with spurring the contemporary “gay” rights movement at home and abroad; however, it is dishonest to make homosexuals look like victims and the cops as venomous and villainous.

One veteran of the riots told ABC News, “We were fighting for our lives.” No, they were fighting for the right to commit sodomy.

And they won because sodomy is now legal in America and now they are fighting to force approval, even acceptance and maybe some applause by normal people.

One Democrat presidential candidate has suggested that “gays” should be paid reparations for past and present discrimination! So where does it stop?

Well, it shouldn’t stop until I get paid; after all, we Fundamentalists have been reproached, ridiculed, and rejected for at least 50 years because we believe the Bible is the only authoritative standard by which mankind should live. We believe it is the inspired, inerrant, and indispensable Word of a sovereign God. Movies have ridiculed us with depictions of Elmer Gantry types and most television productions show preachers as effeminate, unlikable, even despicable, deceitful, and never dynamic persons. Never handsome, articulate, intelligent, or impressive.

I’m unfairly called a Bible-thumper but I seldom thump my Bible and if I do, it isn’t really hard. And it is always the King James Version.

No wonder I have a complex.

If reparations (for long-past mistreatment) can be justified, then why shouldn’t Jews demand payment from Egyptians who kept them in slavery for hundreds of years? Some black extremists tell us that Egyptians were black so that makes a whole “black” civilization slaveholders! That means we have two “victim” groups who are involved. A “black” civilization kept the whole Hebrew nation in slavery for 400 years! So, all Blacks everywhere owe Jews everywhere.

Blacks (or any group) are striking matches in a roomful of gunpowder by insisting on reparations since all sane people know they are unacceptable, unworthy, and unworkable.

The allegation is made that present day America has benefited greatly from the slavery of 150 years ago; and consequently, it is only reasonable that we should pay the descendants of those who “built this nation.” Hold it. If that is true, then how can one say that only white Americans have benefited? Haven’t Blacks also benefited? After all, American Blacks, as a group, have more money than many of the nations of the world! Their income is more than twenty times what they would have if their ancestors had never been sold into slavery. Therefore, if present day Whites have benefited from slavery, so have present day Blacks.

The whining black reverends tell us that reparations were paid to the Jews for mistreatment during WW II and to the Japanese for their internment during the war, so why no payment for Blacks? But the payments to the Japanese and Jews went to the actual deserving people who suffered.

The demand from Blacks for reparations says to Blacks, Asians and others that Blacks simply can’t make it on their own. They want permanent “victimhood” status. Others must push them up the ladder. Many of the “others” are people who have more baggage than the aggrieved Blacks. After all, immigrants from totalitarian countries come here from totally different cultures, not speaking English, and they often surpass modern day American Blacks who don’t have the disadvantages that Asian and other newcomers have!

Anyone want to explain that to me?

I suggest that black leaders stop using the race card to enlarge their bank accounts, enlist more followers, and expand their egos. They should spend their time helping build the black family structure and help improve black/white relations. (Some of those black reverends might even do some preaching since they are supposed to be preachers.) They would do well to be honest and admit that many problems in the black community have not developed from slavery or mistreatment by “Whitey” but by the personal failures of black society.

If slavery was the main cause of black problems, then why would those problems have been less dramatic 60 years ago than they are today? Sixty years ago, there were fewer problems among blacks than today. There is a 75% black illegitimacy rate but in 1940, it was only 14%! In 1960, “only” 23% of kids were born to female-headed homes but today it is 62%! And there, I believe, is the major cause of black problems.

Over three years of data from 2011 to 2013 reveals 38.5% of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black. And Blacks make up only 13% of our population. Furthermore, the data shows “93 percent of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks.” Hey, if black lives really do matter, why is it that so many Blacks are killing Blacks?

There were almost 6,000 Blacks killed by other Blacks in 2015 and “only” 258 Blacks were killed by police that year. One death is too many but this focuses on the real problem.

Many of the crimes in America come from “33,000 violent street gangs, motorcycle gangs, and prison gangs [that] are criminally active in the U.S. today.” The most recent figures provided by law enforcement are “46 percent Hispanic/Latino gang members, 35 percent African-American/black gang members, more than 11 percent white gang members, and 7 percent other race/ethnicity of gang members.”

So, if black problems are a legacy of slavery, why would the numbers have been better 60 years ago? Could it be a problem of choices, commitment, and character? Put the normal, biblical family back together and we will see a major change in white and black households.

I suggest black politicians and black reverends have much work to do before they try to lay guilt at the feet of Whites. In fact, let me be very clear: Here is one white Christian male who is guilt-free. I have never done any harm to any Black, and I treat all people as people.

I am embarrassed at the white involvement in the slave trade (as Blacks should be of black involvement) but I harbor no guilt. None, zero, zilch.

It’s way past time to stop the silliness because if reparations are paid to anyone, we will have the biggest tax protest movement ever in America.

Is Trump Pandering to the LGBTQ Crowd a Political Ploy? http://donboys.cstnews.com/is-trump-pandering-to-the-lgbtq-crowd-a-political-ploy http://donboys.cstnews.com/is-trump-pandering-to-the-lgbtq-crowd-a-political-ploy#respond Fri, 19 Jul 2019 01:08:03 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2385 President Trump knows better than to pander to the LGBTQ crowd, but listening to advisors, he has chosen to throw the homosexual lobby a bone not realizing that they will never be satisfied. They are not interested in a “bone”; they want to chomp on the hand that threw it. Anyone, with his ear to the ground, his eye on the ball, and with half his brain tied behind his back knows the LGBTQ crowd consists primarily of national bullies, brutes, and bigots. Trump will never be able to satisfy that crowd since they will only be satisfied when the debate is shut down, and no one has the courage or opportunity or legal right to question them about their unhealthy, unnatural, and unwise practices.

Yet, in light of the above facts, President Trump, surely with fingers crossed and his tongue placed firmly in cheek declared, “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions that LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation. My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invites all nations to join us in this effort!”

Therefore, we now have national acceptance of perversion as well as popular support and “people of good will” are attempting to make perversion universally accepted!

Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen in their 1989 book, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s gave specific instructions how homosexuality could be mainstreamed. “Gays must be cast as victims in need of protection” Even if they are not the victim, they should pretend to be the victim. They were told to keep talking about “gayness” and make themselves look good and critics very bad. Stupid people have complied and a sea change has taken place. Wrong is now right, bad is now good, and corrupt is now correct.

Trump is listening to the wrong advisors. Isaiah will serve him better than any of his staff. He had better remember Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” Trump and others can promote evil but they will all be held to an account. Modern man does not want to hear a difficult truth but it is better to be disturbed by the truth than deceived by error. Those who defend perversion are out of step with God, decency, history, and common sense.

Christians and informed Conservatives are aghast at Trump’s support of the homosexual lobby who hates him with a white heat. Moreover, he does not need that vote to win in 2020. All he has to do is continue to keep his promises and build a substantial part of the wall.

No reporter had the courage to ask, “Mr. President, will you please provide three of the ‘outstanding contributions’ the LGBTQ (caution: very offensive video) crowd has made to America? That question will not be asked and I’m considered a bigot for stressing that failure of all mainstream journalists.

Even in light of the incredible public acceptance of homosexuality, the pro-family Conservatives have won the intellectual battle dealing with the LGBTQ crowd, but are losing the public relations battle. The homosexual lobby has been deficient, dishonest, and defeated in the major disputes in this quagmire. Informed people know that homosexuals were not “born that way”; that they can be converted to normal living; that many of them do recruit; that they are disease carriers; they are illegal drug users; they die much younger than normal people do; and are adding to the destruction of our health care system.

There is no argument that Conservative Christians have won the intellectual battle: homosexuality is abnormal, aberrational, and abominable. The battle is over (but the war is not won) and homosexuals are left with one arrow in their quiver: anyone who criticizes them or even questions their lifestyle is a bigot and hater. In that, the homosexual lobby has been very successful. They have made the issue one of “hate,” not of science, health, and morality. And the media and public are too uninformed to know they have been conned by the LGBTQ crowd.

Anyone familiar with logic or philosophy understands that a person’s motives have nothing to do with the reality of his assertions. However, homosexuals refuse to deal with the issue, and they are left standing with open mouth without any answers; and they concentrate on vilifying their opponents. That way, they are less embarrassed by their inability to speak to the issue.

It is my unsupported, unprovable but not unlikely opinion that Trump probably thinks sodomy is a disgusting, deviate, dangerous, even deadly practice; however, the LGBTQ crowd, while small, is powerful and has a large crowd of useful idiots who will jump when ordered, march when told to do so, throw a purse or shoe, cry on camera, and scream on cue.

Furthermore, Trump has a sordid past of disgusting, degrading, and debasing affairs (I hope they are all in the past) so he cannot legitimately discuss sexual turpitude without inviting deserved accusations of hypocrisy.

I suggest that there is an administration plan to deal with the homosexual lobby and limit their influence on the next election: Trump will support homosexual rights around the world while Vice-President Pence will speak out for pro-family positions even being lightly critical of perversion. In taking that approach, Trump throws a bone (again) to everyone. This ploy is convincing because Trump has a despicable past, yet individual Evangelicals justified their vote for him by claiming Mike Pence is a conservative, Evangelical Christian.

I know that’s true because that’s how I justified my vote for Trump along with my revulsion of voting for Hillary.

Trump is hoping that homosexuals will say, “Well, he is the most friendly President to the LGBTQ crowd so maybe he will come along with time.” No, they will not say that because they detest Republicans, Conservatives, free enterprise, family values, and an America-first agenda.

A nation’s ruling government has the primary responsibility of keeping citizens safe from aggressors and terrorists abroad and anarchist, traitors, and fifth columns within. These dangerous people are assisted in their treason by the very constitution they seek to destroy. Added to the above there is now the threat of our nation being destroyed by open borders. Open borders encourage terrorists, invite devastating diseases, increase Democrat voters, and will financially destroy America.

Homosexuality should not be encouraged for many devastating reasons. They are the most diseased group in the world and their continued repulsive practices may be as debilitating, dangerous, and devastating in the long run as an atomic bomb.

Previous US presidents have all been abject failures in this area. Beginning with and including Reagan, no president or his Surgeon General has been willing to go on record about the dangers of perversion. All have said, “Stop gaining weight!” “Stop using illegal drugs!” “Stop smoking!” But no one has been willing to say, “Stop your fornication and anal sodomy!” Had they done so we might not have a population of disease carriers.

The Centers for Disease Control reported in August of 2018, “New CDC analysis shows steep and sustained increases in STDs in recent years!” The report revealed almost 2.3 million new cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were diagnosed in the United States in 2017, marking the fourth consecutive year of sharp increases in these sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)! Gonorrhea diagnoses increased 67 percent overall from 333,004 to 555,608 cases. That’s in one year.

Obviously, there is a high cost to low living and President Trump is promoting such activity by supporting homosexuality! Sexual permissiveness has spread across America and the world like a malignant cancer leaving in its wake blasted lives, broken hearts, and blighted bodies and the official US government position is to encourage perversion worldwide.

At the rate America is decaying morally, the next president may have to change our national symbol from eagle to buzzard and if God does not judge America, some impertinent people will assume He will apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Trump, in supporting the LGBTQ crowd, has climbed out on a high limb and handed his enemies a saw. I hope they are too stupid to use it.

Enough, It’s Time for Joel Osteen to Surrender His Ordination Credentials and Leave the Ministry! http://donboys.cstnews.com/enough-its-time-for-joel-osteen-to-surrender-his-ordination-credentials-and-leave-the-ministry http://donboys.cstnews.com/enough-its-time-for-joel-osteen-to-surrender-his-ordination-credentials-and-leave-the-ministry#respond Fri, 12 Jul 2019 15:08:37 +0000 http://donboys.cstnews.com/?p=2383 It must be said so I will say it. Joel Osteen is a heretic as are many other “soft” Evangelicals who have departed from the faith. I am careful about “attacking” preachers since others are quick to do that, and usually the criticism is not valid. However, enough is enough. Joel fits the description of a heretic as being “a professed believer who maintains religious opinions contrary to those accepted by his or her church or rejects doctrines prescribed by that church.”

Osteen is obviously very successful depending on one’s definition of success. He is worth 50 to 60 million dollars, has had seven bestselling books, is loved and adored by millions of fans, and lives in a multimillion dollar mansion with another home worth more than a million. He is selling a one-half acre lot next to his “smaller” home for over a million.

Yes, almost everyone would quickly call him successful; however, I think he is a pathetic person and a disgrace to the ministry. Especially is that true when he is compared to hundreds of thousands of preachers who live what they preach, helping those in need, working in obscurity and doing so at very meager wages.

Joel said, “I don’t argue when people say that my message is simple, but I believe Jesus’ message was simple.” It is a simple message and while simplicity is a virtue, the simple message must also be true. Joel’s message is not true, making him a false prophet.

Even the media characterizes him as a prosperity preacher, no doubt the secret of his success. He said, “It’s God’s will for you to live in prosperity instead of poverty.” But Christ said, “For ye have the poor always with you.” Joel preaches what people want to hear whereas true preachers tell people what they need to hear.

But in one respect, Joel practices what he preaches since they live in a wealthy Houston suburb. The Osteens paid $10.5 million for their mansion that has 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, 3 elevators, a guest house and outdoor pool and pool house. They also own a second $2.9 million mansion in Tanglewood, Houston.

On October 2, 2013, Osteen did a HuffPost Live interview with Josh Zepps where Joel refused to take a biblical position on sodomy. Of course, neither he nor Zepps would ever use that very correct English word.

Zepps quoted from Joel’s book saying, “It doesn’t matter who likes you or doesn’t like you, all that matters is that God likes you. He accepts you, he approves of you.” Zepps then asked if that included homosexuals.

The pastor replied, “Absolutely, I believe that God breathed life into every person and that every person is made in the image of God and you have (sic) accept them as they are, on their journey. I’m not here to preach hate or push people down.” Joel stated. “I’m not here to tell everybody what they’re doing wrong.” If a preacher is not supposed to reveal and explain Bible truths about personal salvation and how to live the Christian life in obedience to God, then why is he preaching? Could it be power, and prestige, and possessions that motivate him? If so, that would make Joel carnal, crass, and commercial.

Of course, the clear implication is those of us who take a biblical position are haters when in reality we are the lovers! If I warn people that smoking, boozing, gaining weight and using illegal drugs will destroy their health and shorten their lives then I am their friend because I told them the truth that, if obeyed, will save their lives. Similarly, since the chosen homosexual lifestyle will shorten a person’s life, fill him with guilt, produce self-loathing leading to thoughts of suicide, saying so makes me a considerate, concerned, compassionate person—not the hater suggested by the media who grovel at the feet of the LGBTQ crowd.

The most recent egregious thing the Osteens have done is their recent appearance at an event celebrating a major LGBTQ “gay” pride event. A news site headlined, “Joel Osteen Attends Lady Gaga LGBT Pride Event.” According to the New York Daily News Gaga began by asking the crowd, “Are you ready to f____ing party tonight?” In the crowd were Joel and Victoria Osteen, who were indeed ready to party.

The event was hosted to celebrate gay pride at the Apollo Theater and “the pastor of the nation’s largest ‘church’ was in attendance….The entire event was oriented around gay pride.” Christian News noted that the concert “coincides with World Pride Month, which this year is being celebrated in New York City.”

Reports say that “Gaga performed a selection of her most beloved hits dancing around, in a most homoerotic latex fantasy, dropping F-bombs…” She told her audience of movie stars, homosexuals, dragqueens, and others, “So, it’s Pride Week. I wish it could exist 365 days of the year, but I’ll take an [expletive] global week.” Prancing about scandalously dressed, she sang about homosexuality in her song Born This Way—“A different lover is not a sin, believe capital H-I-M,” the tune claims. “No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive. … I’m beautiful in my way, ’cause God makes no mistakes.”

I wonder if the famous preacher and his wife were uncomfortable as a dog in hot ashes with such depravity or if they have grown numb to such debauchery.

The Daily Mail reported, “Prosperity gospel preacher Joel Osteen wore a navy blazer with a gray-blue shirt, while his wife Victoria Osteen had on an elegant black dress with cut-outs over her short sleeves.”

While the Osteens were wearing more clothing than the movie stars, homosexuals, trans genders in attendance, why were they there whatever their clothing? No doubt, it was related to the Osteens’ radio show on Sirius; however, business is no excuse to sit silently while a celebration of perversion is happening.

What were decent people doing in such an event? What were a leading Evangelical pastor and his wife doing there? Why did he not stand on his chair and call them all to repentance as an Old Testament prophet would have done? As the Apostle Paul would have done?

Jude reminds Joel and all preachers to “contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Titus 5:20 commands preachers, “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.” Titus 1:13 requires us, “Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.” In II Tim. 4:2 we are told to “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

Joel and Victoria were out of place at that LGBTQ event, and they are out of place when they are in the pulpit.

Joel will not reconsider, repent, and return to his religious roots because the price is too great for him to admit error when that admission would dissolve his salary, status, and security.
