THE CLEAR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT

The clear differences between the Left and the Right

The crisis of the coronavirus-induced economic lockdown and now the violent protests in the streets have unleashed a depression-level financial crisis and unprecedented human suffering — especially in our inner cities. These events have also exposed a Grand Canyon-sized chasm that now separates how the Left and the Right see America today. To wit:

1) The Right believes that stay-at-home orders and social distancing requirements are counterproductive and should be repealed safely and immediately. The Left believes that those orders must stay in place but should apply to those on the Right, not to liberal protesters.

2) The Right engages in nonviolence. The Left shows tacit support for mob violence.

3) The Right believes that the best way to revive the economy is to incentivize a dormant workforce to get back on the job. The Left believes that the best way to revive the economy is to pay people more money not to work than to work.

2 VIDEOS LET US REMEMBER

Monday, May 25th, 2020

 

The following was shared with us by Susan Metts, the Mid-Atlantic Region Advancement Officer of the National Rifle Association in honor of Memorial Day.  Susan is also one of our conservative ladies and a very special friend !   Nancy

 

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” -President John F. Kennedy, 1961-1963

You may already know that Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Established after the Civil War, General John A. Logan, a Union Veteran’s Association leader, organized the first national Decoration Day in 1868. Coincidentally, two of his Union veteran peers established the National Rifle Association three years later.

The celebration of Decoration Day transformed into Memorial Day, and as we all assuredly know, it is still celebrated today.

Evoking strong emotions, many creative artists have commemorated Memorial Day to capture the spirit for all to remember. However, below are two special links that I found particularly moving. I hope you enjoy them too.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY MOVEMENT ISN’T GOING AWAY

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

 

This is an interesting article about a man in Virginia who was not particularly political but he has become involved in supporting the 2nd amendment sanctuary movement.  The threat from the Democrats in Virginia has definitely got his attention !!!  Nancy

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Isn’t Going Away

The media smears them as ‘white supremacists,’ but thousands showed up in Richmond, Va., Monday

Middletown, Va.

Troy Carter, 49, says that, other than voting, he’d never been involved in politics. That changed late last year, when he heard that a county board of supervisors in Virginia voted to become a gun sanctuary. On Monday he was one of an estimated 22,000 people who gathered peacefully at the Capitol Square in Richmond, Va., to support gun rights. Many of those attending were visibly armed.

Ninety-one of Virginia’s 96 counties have passed sanctuary measures to resist proposed state gun regulations. Last year Democrats took control of both chambers of Virginia’s General Assembly for the first time in nearly three decades. They, along with Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, have stood firm on their campaign pledges to enact stricter gun control, partly in reaction to a shooting last May in Virginia Beach.

For Virginians like Mr. Carter, the effort has brought about a political awakening. He learned to shoot when he was six years old. Guns are a normal part of his life, like fishing or going to church every Sunday, and something he considers vital to protecting and providing for his family. Mr. Carter choked up as he described a tradition of safety, protection and providing taught to him by his grandfather—and his grandfather before him. When he discovered the sanctuary movement, he decided to go to a meeting two counties away to learn more.

Becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary means a locality won’t use law enforcement resources to prosecute the proposed antigun laws. Whether such resolutions have any teeth depends on local officials’ resolve, but at the very least these measures are a reflection of regional sentiment on gun control.

This grass-roots movement is largely composed of people like Mr. Carter, who aren’t otherwise political but strongly believe in the importance of the Second Amendment. At his first meeting, he encountered massive support, “I just couldn’t believe the amount of people that showed up.”

Mr. Carter soon found himself attending another gathering in another county, and then another. When it finally came time for his county supervisors to take a vote, he spoke at the meeting. They passed a sanctuary measure.

A SHORT VETERANS DAY FICTIONAL STORY

Sunday, November 10th, 2019

 

In honor of Veterans Day, I am sending out a fictional short story that was written by Edward Reed especially for Veterans Day.  To read more of Edward Reed’s writings, the link below will take you to his website.  Several of my favorite short stories of his is Old Dogs  and Valley of the Shadow.  Badge, one of his published books, is also a favorite.  Edward Reed writes of  a time of family love, hardship,  patriotism and the once common appreciation of the simple things of life.   Nancy

The Rest of the Story

The Rest of the Story

For over fifty years Luther Hobbs, Wilmer’s Hobbs’ younger brother, has flown a flag every Veterans Day. It was something his father did until he no longer could, then Luther took over. It was a way to honor Wilmer,  a way to remember.

Luther will be the first to admit that his memory isn’t as good as it used to be

“Time is catching up to me,” is something he says more and more these days while watching  the evening sun drift behind tall trees he used to climb as a boy. That was until Wilmer was killed. After Wilmer was killed climbing trees was no longer fun.

Wilmer had taught him how to climb trees,  and so many other things, things he would never forget things like;  how to throw a curve ball, how to bait a fishing hook, ride a bicycle, how to not be afraid of the dark, and the Lord’s Prayer.

Wilmer taught him how to tie his shoes too. Luther still remembers that afternoon, and how long it took and how patient Wilmer was as they sat on the porch steps until he finally caught on. He remembers it every morning when he ties his shoe laces.

Sometimes he hears Wilmer’s voice whispering to him and sometimes calling out from across the fields, and sometimes when he walks along the stream. It was by the stream where Wilmer first told him he was going away to fight in the war. It was where Wilmer let him listen to his grandfather’s watch that last time.

Luther thinks about that watch now and then. He still remembers its ticks and tocks. The old watch wasn’t among Wilmer’s things that the Army sent home after he was killed.

Luther still kept those things, a few medals, and ribbons, Wilmer’s dog tag, and two stripes that he never got around to sewing onto his uniform. He keeps them in a box, the same box that he keeps the flag that once draped his brother’s coffin. Its the flag he takes out every Veteran’s day and hoists high, unfurling it in the crisp November breeze just as the sun peaks over the mountain top.

This Veteran’s Day, like Luther’s memories, there is not as much left of his brother’s flag  to dance in the morning breeze.

Two weeks ago Luther’s grandchildren  dug the old flag out burned it. When he was awakened by smoke he thought his whole world was on fire. In a way it was and still is as he continues nursing burns from reaching in the hot blazing flames.

He did it without thinking.

“A silly thing,” the doctor at the emergency room told him.

Luther listened.

“It’s just an old flag,” the doctor said more than once. It was the same thing celebrities say, and what his grandchildren said while they watched him rescue the old flag they set out to destroy.

“Because being an American isn’t cool.”

By some miracle all of the red, white, and blue wasn’t burned and enough stars and stripes survived for Luther Hobbs to fly his brother’s flag this Veteran’s Day and remember.

I pray this is a work of fiction I pray, but fear it’s not. Edward Reed 2019

BOOK REVIEW: ERASING AMERICA: LOSING OUR FUTURE BY DESTROYING OUR PAST

BOOK REVIEW

Erasing America: Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past

 4.41  ·   Rating details ·  44 ratings  ·  10 reviews

“A brilliant book based on a brilliant and true concept.” – TUCKER CARLSON  

Remember America? There may come a time when no one will.

There will be no monuments to American heroes, no stories that will praise them. The United States will have become a dark chapter in human history, best forgotten.

In Erasing America: Destroying Our Future by Erasing Our Past (releasing August 21st), James Robbins reveals that the radical Left controls education, the media, and the Democratic party…. and they seek to demean, demolish, and relentlessly attack America’s past in order to control America’s present.

This toxic movement has already brainwashed an entire generation and is rapidly changing the cultural, historical, and spiritual bonds of our nation.  American exceptionalism, history, and patriotism are a magnificent legacy, Robbins warns, but to pass it on to our children, we must view the past with understanding, the present with gratitude, and the future with hope.

Wondering if it’s really that bad? Here are some facts you’ll learn in Erasing America:

At Yale, residential Calhoun College is being renamed after students complained about the pro-slavery sentiments of John C. Calhoun. In Massachusetts, Simmons College claims saying, “God bless you” is an “Islamophobic microaggression.”  In Virginia, school districts seek to ban To Kill a Mockingbird and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn because parents complained about the racial slurs in the books. Across the country, Christmas songs and movies are labelled as racist and sexist – and banned. In California, a San Francisco school district wants to rename George Washington High School because our first president owned slaves. In Arkansas, a monument engraved with the Ten Commandments was smashed to smithereens by a protester in a Dodge Dart. And in parks and squares across the South, statues of confederate generals and soldiers are disappearing.

Robbins wants you to understand the critical situation in America, and to use Erasing America to equip your fellow Americans against this Leftist propaganda – before it’s too late!

 

James S. Robbins is a senior fellow for National Security Affairs at the American Foreign Policy Council and a member of the advisory board to the National Civil War Museum. Formerly, he was an award-winning editorial writer at the Washington Times, professor at the National Defense University, and special assistant in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He holds a Ph.D. from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. His books include This Time We Win: Revisiting the Tet Offensive (2010) and Last in Their Class: Custer, Pickett and the Goats of West Point (2006).

THE BIG PICTURE OF TRUMP’S RALLIES

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

 

The Big Picture of Trump’s Rallies

The president is adept at connecting with audiences, which will help in 2020.

Nate Jackson · Oct. 14, 2019

Seeing these crowds is so uplifting.  Downside,  Trump supporters were attacked by the Left.  Keep calm, we’re going to win by a landslide.

The Big Picture of Trump’s Rallies

“Watching the President in [his rallies], I can’t help but think he needs to do a lot more of these,” says Erick Erickson. “Get him out of the White House, away from the TV, and with the crowds that love him. He feeds off their energy. He is deeply entertaining and funny on the stage. He drives the media crazy. … He needs to do more of these.”
Erickson has a good point. President Donald Trump is a crowd pleaser and a man who loves connecting with people from the stage. His television persona gave Americans a familiarity with him long before he ran for president that made voters amenable to his brand of populism, and he played to that strength in “yuge” rallies across the nation in 2016. It will be a necessary part of his 2020 campaign, too.
He doesn’t speak like a polished politician, rattling off the same old list of policy proposals. Instead, he hits his opponents with broadsides that connect with supporters. For instance, in a Louisiana rally Friday, he declared, “[Democrats have been] trying to stop us for more than three years with a lot of crap. They know they can’t win on Election Day so they’re pursuing an illegal, invalid, and unconstitutional bulls—t impeachment.” That’s salty language, but somehow it works for Trump — because he’s right on the merits.
Not only do Trump’s rallies inspire his supporters, they infuriate his detractors. Gary Bauer writes of last Thursday’s rally in Minneapolis, “Sadly, there was violence after the rally ended. MAGA hats were burned. Trump supporters were assaulted. Leftists waved the flag of communist China. Police officers had to create a path for cars to leave because demonstrators were attacking vehicles in the parking garage. It was a striking contrast. Inside the Target Center, Trump praised our brave men and women in uniform, our soldiers, and police officers. He defended our flag and our country. Outside, the left-wing radicals, the activist base of the Democrat Party, were attacking cops, burning flags, yelling their hatred for America, and assaulting conservatives.”
Furthermore, for those paying attention, that highlights the gross double standard of the mainstream media. Bauer notes, “If, after any speech by a leading Democrat, a mob formed outside and began punching people and attacking cars, every network would be running the footage non-stop. Every Republican would be forced to condemn it on the record. But no elected Democrat … will be asked to condemn what happened on the streets of Minneapolis.”
The more Americans are exposed to the radicalism of the Left, the more Trump’s quirks and idiosyncrasies seem like the sane choice in 2020.

“PAC 6: A General’s Decision”

Linebacker II was the primary military mission that led to the end of the US involvement in the Vietnam War. Most importantly, it secured the release of our POWs, some of whom had been held in extreme, unimaginable and torturous conditions for more than 7 years. Taking place in and around Hanoi, the most heavily defended city in the world at the time, Linebacker II was quite possibly the most intense use of air power in our nation’s history.

“PAC 6: A General’s Decision” is the the story of the decisions made by Brigadier General Glenn R. Sullivan and others which enabled the success of the Linebacker II mission. It is also the story of the General’s son and his own search for understanding and the truths of his father’s involvement.

After losing nine B-52s which was attributed to methods originated not in the battlefield but in Omaha, Nebraska, something needed to be done. General Sullivan, along with staff and crew members, developed and recommended new tactics sent directly to General J.C. Meyer, Commander of Strategic Air Command (SAC). By taking this direct action for the sake of expedience, General Sullivan bypassed his immediate supervisor, thus jumping the “chain of command”. The changes were effective and resulted in achieving the goals of getting the North Vietnamese back to the negotiating table, securing the release of the POWs, and saving the lives of untold numbers of crew members..Ironically, Sullivan’s action came at the expense of his beloved career in the Air Force.
