Trump Goes Full QAnon Cult

Am I the only one who looks at this picture and thinks “Hunger Games”?

The picture (courtesy of Getty images) is from a rally in Ohio on Saturday where Donald Trump was campaigning for candidates on the ballot in November. After an 8 minute speech, talking mostly about the 2020 election, music began to play in the background and a portion of the crowd raised their hands with one finger raised. The music and song have been identified as “WWG1WGA” after the QAnon slogan, “Where we go one, we go all”.  

Trump’s War On Law Enforcement and the Justice Department

In an interview on Thursday, Donald Trump warned that if criminal charges are brought against him that there would be “problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before.” 

Much like the TV mobster who shakes down people for protection money with “You know this is a dangerous neighborhood. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to your family”, Trump threatens that his blind loyalists will take to the streets if he is charged with a crime, no matter what the outcome of the trial is. Of course, that implies that there are people who will follow him, no matter what and no matter what any evidence shows. And, that they will do so even if they would be appalled and outraged if ‘the other guy’ had kept highly classified nuclear secrets at their house and outside of the required national security procedures and safeguards for handling such information.

How do people just give up thinking and blindly follow someone, no matter what they say or do? How do you wrap our mind around that?

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, senior FBI and DHS officials briefed members of the Senate Judiciary and Homeland Security committees Thursday on the uptick in threats against federal law enforcement in the aftermath of the search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the seizure of classified information, including ‘special handling’ information and information on nuclear capabilities. 

Oberlin College Must Pay $35.6 M to ‘Racists’

In Nov. 2016, a local Ohio bakery called police on a 17 year old who tried to use a fake ID to buy wine. Two others were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after they argued with, and physically assaulted, employees at the bakery.

The three teenagers arrested-Jonathan Aladin, Cecelia Whettston, and Endia J. Lawrence-happened to be Black. Students and professors at nearby Oberlin College began protesting outside the bakery, saying that the owners were racists.

Violence Against Pro-Life Groups Grows

Since the Supreme Court’s recent decision on abortion on May 8, pro-life organizations have been victims of vandalism and violence, even those that exist solely to serve as resources for women’s health. Since May, fifty attacks on pro-life organizations have been reported to authorities.

Overturning Roe: Practical Fallout

This week, SCOTUS issued a significant decision which was as significant as the original Roe decision. Clearly, there are passionate opinions across the political spectrum. More such a momentous event, I will do something almost equally as rare and share thoughts from a strictly non-political perspective, but yet thoughts that each of us, no matter where we are on the political spectrum, need to hear.

Far Left Using Children for Their Social Experiments

It is a traditional area of fundamental disagreement between liberals and conservatives. Very generally, liberals believe in more government involvement in daily life and that government can and should be guiding society to the “best” solutions, shown to us by a benevolent but knowing government. Conservatives believe in self-determination and that the role of government should be limited. People should generally be in control and allowed to make their own decisions, even if those may be bad ones.

Across the country, we see that one of the biggest issues in elections is that of parental rights. In Virginia, the Governor said that parents did not have the right to decide what their children were taught and last November parents reacted by electing Republican Glenn Youngkin, who had never held political office before but who promised to give parents and the people control of the government, rather than allowing the government to tell parents what was going to be done.

That broader trend is just indicative of a more specific, and more radical one. The far left wants to not only control what goes on in schools, regardless of what parents think, but they want to use schools to further their social experiments and to teach children—starting at a very young age—their radical and in some cases dangerous—views. Such is the case with the move to sexualize children and to push sex on children as young as four or five years old.

Starbucks On Abortion

For those who are aficionados of the trendy hot drink chain, Starbucks announced today that they are adding abortion travel benefits to the health benefits for all employees.

If any employee lives in a state that limits abortions or if they would have to travel more than 100 miles to get an abortion, Starbucks will pay the cost of travel to get the abortion.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Scary

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is a wild-eyed radical who enjoys saying crazy things, seemingly to get publicity and raise money. But as outlandish as she seems, you have to wonder if she really believes all of the crazy things she says. Apparently so.

On Thursday, at a court proceeding on an election law issue Greene was asked, under oath, if she advocated violence against people who disagree with her. Under oath, she replied “I don’t think so,” Greene replied. “I don’t know how to answer that.”

How do you not know how to answer that?! Well, it is quite simple, although seemingly too hard to believe. Greene simply does not believe in democracy and elections. It is that straightforward. She would not rule out violence against people who disagree with her and THAT is why she is so dangerous and is not qualified to hold any public office.

Doctor’s “Guess” At Birth

Brooke Roslindale School, a Boston area charter school, had a unique way to explain what OB/GYNs do at birth.

In an “identity Share” class, the assistant principal and a first grade teach Ray Skyer were teaching their 6 year olds and Skyer said “So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or girl.” and then went on to explain about “transgender” and “cisgender” and that he was a transgender.

It is probably a sign of my age to say “I remember when…” but when I was in first grade, I didn’t know whether any of my teachers were married or single or if they had any surgeries and no one felt the need to teach elementary school kids to question their sex. Yet, that is not the case today and there is a n agenda being pushed to teach kids about alternate lifestyles at the same time they are learning how to count and to know their colors.  And THAT is why Florida passed a law to re-focus early education on things that matter, rather than on a social agenda that is totally inappropriate for the age.
