ALLAH PRAISED IN CONGRESS

The camel’s nose is under the tent. We should all be outraged.

As for me, I am definitely prejudiced as well as Islamophobic.  All freedom-loving Americans have cause to be Islamophobic. There is nothing to be ashamed of. These people scare the hell out of me, not just for myself, but for my family, my descendants, my country and the free world.

Such prejudice and fears are well deserved.  There are multi-millions who feel the same, but do not speak out for fear of being labeled “intolerant.”  Well, consider this writer intolerant.

Political correctness is the tool our enemies use, which the media enforces, to keep us all numb from what is bringing down this wonderful country.  The Muslim Brotherhood has gone on record, through their own documents, that their intent is to destroy the United States from within. That’s a fact.  (see link, below)  Our relationship with Islam is far worse today than it was when this president took office. Nothing is going better on the international front. It’s all much more dangerous today than it was on 2008.

Meanwhile, our congress invites an Islamic Imam to perform the invocation within the hallowed halls of our Capitol, while Islamists

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: BIRDMAN 8 1/2

Birdman  =  8 ½

     In a word:  Bizarre.

     But bizarre in a good way.  It’s hustle-bustle enough to hold your attention from scene to scene, but not so bizarre that it strays from the central, captivating storyline. This movie is not mainstream Hollywood. It’s about actors playing actors who play actors – on Broadway, that is.

     I was never a big Michael Keaton fan, but I must hand it to him, this is the role of his career for which I have no doubts he will receive his first Oscar nomination. Keaton plays a down-and-out actor/director in a side-street theater off Broadway when he lands another top actor (Edward Norton) who is as nuts as he is, to play a lead role in a developing play, one in which Keaton’s character must succeed or his life on Broadway will be over.

     As sad as the characters are in their struggles for acceptance and adoration, the audience will be captured by the depth of the plot, and the talent of actors at their best. Add two female powerhouses, Naomi Watts and Emma Stone, one (Watts) playing a first-time Broadway actress, the other (Stone) the young daughter

RATING THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFULS FOR 2016

Here’s a brief perspective on all the early possible candidates for 2016 in the Republican side.

 

Gov. Mitt Romney

     Outstanding choice, outstanding human being and reeks of competency. But he lost. He’s had his shot, and should move on, or eventually accept a position in the new cabinet. Adlai Stevenson was a good man who tried twice, and it just doesn’t work. 

Sen. Ted Cruz

     Moot issue. A waste of anyone’s interest because he is ineligible.  Republicans and Obama critics in general made a huge issue about Obama being born outside the U.S.  It would not only be hypocritical for him to run, the democrats would have a field day because Cruz was born in Canada. That’s life.

Gov. Jeb Bush

     He may be a good guy, but it doesn’t matter. Too many folks are bushed from the Bushes.  Time to move on to new names, new families, new thinking.    

Gov. Chris Christie

     One of the more prominent front runners because he’s tough and effective. But he’s not beautiful and can be overly gruff with people.  People might like his hard honesty.

Sen. Rand Paul

     Smart, young and full of logic and ideas

OBAMACARE PASSAGE RELIED ON “STUPID VOTERS”

Jonathan Gruber is a college professor and one of the primary architects of Obamacare.  During a panel discussion in 2013 at the University of Pennsylvania, he was explaining (without teleprompters) the problems in passing the Affordable Health Care law, and the complex drafting of the legislation.  He may not have realized he was being taped, and has since apologized for making the remarks, but you cannot unring the bell.

     Here is part of his remarks:

     This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? So it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in — you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed. OK? Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass. Look, I wish … we could make it all transparent, but

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: ST VINCENT – 8 1/2

Usually, at this time of year, the best movies are released in advance of the Oscars.  So, far it’s been a dull movie season although Fury was more than fair and Interstellar an utter bore.

     Then along comes a surprise. St. Vincent is what movies are supposed to be about; drama, emotions, human struggle interspersed just enough with a few comic scenes. It’s a movie that will leave you talking about during the dinner after, or among other movie lovers searching for a decent story devoid of the constant barrages of the “F” word, gratuitous violence, car chases and sex.

     Ironically, the two major stars are best known as comedians, playing dramatic roles as good as any DeNiro or Redgrave. Bill Murray plays an anti-social, rude old grouch whose world is embittered with loss and the absence of love. Mellissa McCarthy plays a frumpy, soon-to-be-single mom of a 12 year-old boy seeking asylum from a cheating ex-husband, and moves next door to Murray. She works overtime to care for her and her child, only to face unwanted confrontations with the old grouch next door. Things don’t go well at first. But that all changes as Murray’s character develops

ELECTION SENDS CLEAR MESSAGE TO OBAMA

 “I am not on the ballot this fall.  Michelle’s pretty happy about that.  But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot.  Every single one of them.” 

                                                  –    President Barack Obama, October 2, 2014

    The next question is: Now that the majority of voters have clearly expressed their disapproval of your policies, Mr. President, what are you going to do about it?

     I suspect Mr. Obama is so marinated in power and self-love, he will continue to lead by executive mandate and do what he can to disregard the will of the people. He has a mission, and this election is a stumbling block in that mission.  His words:

     “The fundamental transformation of America.”

     I’ve listened to an array of analyses about the outcome of this election and why the republicans did so well against the once-popular president. Most pundits point to the economy, how the $18 trillion debt continues to pile up untethered, though, in 2008, this president accused George W. Bush of being “unpatriotic” for allowing

PROTECT ISRAEL ON ELECTION DAY

Israel is never free from attacks by Hamas, PLO, Hezbollah, … they are surrounded by cultures and countries that- for 66 years —  openly vow they will not be satisfied until Israel is utterly destroyed. Nevertheless, Israel is unnecessarily torn in the middle by the Obama administration who pressure and ridicule Netanyahu, as though he’s the bad guy…while Jihadi rockets continue to explode in their towns and streets.

     It is a sad time, indeed, for we have never had worse relations with our Israeli allies since it became a country in 1948, than we do now.  I’ve always said, and nothing has shown me any different, that Barack Obama plays both sides, but his heart on the side of the Islamists. 

     This is the reason that I encourage everyone to vote straight down the line Republican this election, no matter the candidate, to pull the rug out from his power base, and prevent him from acting as dictator for his lame duck two years. He relies on support from state governors and senators, and congressmen to carry out his long range mission…in his words…”the fundamental transformation of America.”  Let’s not give it to him.

     Remember, nothing is better
