Everyone Knew, No One Said A Thing

One common theme from all these sex abuse scandals, “everyone knew, but no one said a thing.

Cokie Roberts at ABC said, “Oh, we all knew not to get in an elevator with Rep. Conyers.” Which begs the question, if the fake news media knew, doesn’t that make them equally complicit in the sexual assaults? Same with Matt Lauer, everyone at NBC knew Matt was a pervert, there was a digital finger print of Matt texting to female interns with lewd pictures. Then there’s Al Franken who is pictured groping a woman. However, it’s not just the men doing the groping, the women also get in on the act. This is Standard Operating Procedure in the bizarre world of the liberal left.

Proving that liberal women are just as much pigs as liberal men. 

Remember when the progressive left media pummeled Vice President Mike Pence when he said he would not be with another woman alone? Remember how the leftist media ridiculed and accused Mr. Pence as being discriminatory towards women? Look how the progressive cheerleaders are now dropping like flies over inappropriate sexual behavior.  The whole campaign by the media, democrats, and the progressive fascists to discredit the Trump administration as illegitimate, misogynistic, racist, bigoted, homophobed,  islamicphobed, and just downright mean.  Oh how the tide has turned.

Everything that the dishonest fake news media has said is turning out to be false. All the accusations made by the democrats against the Trump administration is proving untrue. The lies that thrown around to discredit the Trump administration are now turnabout. Now, rampant deviant sexual perversion is pervasive in the democrat party and liberal media.  Even though Trump came from the entertainment industry, and during the campaign was overheard on a hot mic bragging how women craving power will throw themselves at you. There were women that accused then candidate Trump of sexual misconduct. Those charges soon went away after investigations failed to corroborate any of the accusations.

It was commonplace for liberals to cover for known sexual predators. Bill Clinton’s sorted past and eventual impeachment. Radical feminazi Gloria Steinem dismissed Clinton’s accusers in an op’ed in the New York Slimes writing: “Even if the allegations are true, the President is not guilty of sexual harassment. He is accused of having made a gross, dumb, and reckless pass at a supporter during a low point in her life. She pushed him away, she said, and it never happened again. In other words, President Clinton took ‘no’ for an answer.”

That’s pretty much admitting Clinton’s guilt, but dismissing it like Whoopi Goldberg did about Roman Polanski’s child rape as not really “Rape-Rape“. Hollyweird has a history of defending rapists like Polanski. They all knew that Weinstein was a sick pervert, but they didn’t say or do anything because the thought of being blacklisted in Hollyweird was just too much of a career risk. So they bent over and said, “Thank you sir, may I have another?

The title wave of shame that has caught the rich and powerful, also includes evidence to validate the victims claims of sexual abuse. But what about claims made against others? Especially for a current campaign where a controversial candidate is running for office. That’s the question in a ‘he said, she said’ accusations that end up getting tried in a court of public opinion. The Alabama Senate special election is a perfect example.  The Republican candidate, Roy Moore, has been accused of sexual misconduct over 40 years ago.

Several things come to mind. First the timing, the accusations against Judge Moore happened 40 years ago. Only now, the victims come forward. Was that because of the #MeToo sweep across the nation? Or is this a smear against the candidate? Democrats have been known to bring charges of abuse against Republicans when they know they are losing an election. This was a pattern repeated against several Republicans: Herman Cain, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Donald Trump were all accused of sexual misconduct. Again all accusations were tried in the court of public opinion. However, after the election, all the accusers faded away, and the next series of accusations focused on Russia collusion.

Second, the credibility of the accusers. In the Clinton case, all the accusers were dismissed as “Nuts and Sluts” by the media and the democrat party. In the Judge Moore case, all the accusers were all trotted out to the media to give their testimony. Leftist feminist Gloria Allred had her ‘victim’ bawling and reciting from a scripted list of accusations. Even flashing a high school yearbook comment supposedly written by Judge Moore. When the Moore campaign challenged Allred to have the yearbook examined by a handwriting expert, Allred refused and the credibility came into question.  Same with the claim that Judge Moore was banned from a mall for harassing high school girls, but no evidence of a ban was ever corroborated. Plus the latest accuser has a history of bankruptcy’s, divorces, and a question of illicit drug involvement.

Do I believe the accusers are lying? I don’t know what to believe anymore. I do question the source and the timing. After 40 years of silence, why now? What is the truth?

It is not clear if the voters are buying the accusations against Judge Moore. The court of public opinion has already tried and convicted Judge Moore. Even if it is unfair and without due process, both party leadership (or lack thereof) have condemned vehemently Judge Moore and have demanded him to drop out of the race. Mitch McConnell, the spineless rodent in Senate Republican leadership, said if Judge Moore is elected he would not be seated in the Senate. Thus nullifying the voice of the Alabama people.

This is what disgusts me about the so called political leadership in the Republican party. They are quick to condemn their own, but say very little about the perverts across the aisle. This is the swamp that President Trump is fighting against. This is the swamp of depravity that the voters voted against. If the electorate believed the accusations against Trump, then Hillary would have won the Presidency. However, the legacy of the Clinton’s carried enough soiled baggage of lies, deceit, and contempt for the American people to give Trump the benefit of the doubt. The court of public opinion voted, and the results was neither what the liberal media expected, nor the politics of the Washington DC swamp. I believe there will be more shoes dropping as America cleans it’s house of what was decades of hushed perversion that only money and power could silence.

Why is this all happening now? I believe it is because of the Trump election. As we begin to learn who Trump really is, there is a reckoning that everything were were told by the progressive leftist media was a lie. The Trump family seems to have invigorated an American value of decency, religion, and independence of the individual. President Trump has surrounded himself with members of diverse clergies asking for prayer and guidance.  Most notably the return of Judaeo-Christian values that the Founders used to craft the Constitution. The Trump family consists of both Christians and Jews. Their father may be the product of the entertainment industry and a bull in a china shop, but Melenia and Trump’s children are poised and courtlier. The family might be the greatest asset to the Trump administration, and probably what most middle-class Americans are gravitating towards.

Whatever the reason, the Trump dynasty has begun to do what previous administrations could not, and that is renewed American optimism. Trump is careful to not make it about him, but about the American people. He doesn’t act like a deity as with the past regime, and he’s certainly not treated like one by the leftist fake news media. Trump can be humble, but he can also fight back against a hostile leftist media that acts more childish. Trump’s working man persona doesn’t mesh well with the Hollyweird/DC cocktail circuit, even though Trump was a part of that click. Then again, so was Steve Bannon of Breitbart, and Hollyweird hates him also.  Oh Well…

American Genuine

I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about what makes America Exceptional, and that would be our our heroes, the American Military branches. There are men and woman of our armed services that will not be home for the holidays. We owe them our support and gratitude. Especially to the families of the deployed men and woman because their sacrifice is the greatest. We have many Hawai’i National Guard on deployment around the world, and in some of the most hostile and dangerous places. We offer a benediction for their safe return, and we will not forget their service to our country.

 

On our island is the Pohakuloa training camp, together with Bradshaw Army airfield. It is located on Mauna Kea in the high altitudes of the volcano. This is the same mountain where the international observatories are located. The training area simulates the mountainous locations where many of our troops are deployed. Despite the protests by activists, the training area is necessary for military readiness. The military does respect the cultural significance of the mountain, despite the peace activists stirring up trouble.

 

Many of these soldiers will come into Hilo town to shop and they will be in uniform. Whenever we see them in the stores, we always greet them with a handshake and a big Thank You! After all, these are all volunteers and we are grateful for their courage and strength to do what is a very dangerous job. These are very special people, very special families, and they deserve special exceptional thanks.

As Americans, we get to set back and enjoy the holidays. As I prepare a feast for Thanksgiving day, I like to take time out to enjoy activities I don’t always get a chance to do. Like watching old television episodes I grew up with. Star Trek was one of those shows. I like programs that have a moral message of hope for the future. The show inspired me to get into a high-tech career. It afforded me the opportunity to be successful. Unlike the modern programs you see today that offer no redeeming value, and can be somewhat vulgar and unpatriotic. It’s nice to be reminded of a futuristic fantasy that ties the American values into the story.

Star Trek always fascinated me. Here was a story of a military federation of explorers and scientists. Their goal to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations. In this clip from the episode Omega Glory, the Enterprise encounters a earth like world with an interesting Constitution.

I miss these shows. Very few shows today have a moral high ground to promote American values such as Star Trek did. I don’t know where things went wrong in American society. Maybe people stopped caring. Maybe the Greatest Generation after WW2 wanted to put all that horror behind them, and they failed to teach the boomers and millennials why we fight for freedom. Because freedom isn’t free.

Lastly, random acts of kindness should be a practice year round, and not just during the holidays. It restores my faith in people and society that there is goodness to be found. In this ending clip from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, it shows what it’s like for some people that have no one, no family, and no home. Sometimes they are either forgotten, down on their luck, troubled, or any number of issues. Some are even veterans. As a society, we should do whatever we can to help. We may not be able to do a lot, but even a little does help. Aloha!

 

 

 

Thanksgiving

 

My blessing are many. So many that I often take my blessings for granted. Sometimes I have to remind myself just how lucky and blessed I am. I don’t mean by monetary riches, but for what I have is mine that I earned and worked for.

I’m thankful for capitalism. You cannot walk into a grocery store and see the abundance of products. A cornucopia of fresh foods and choices available. When I see countries like Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, and other socialists countries, their choices are limited and often priced out of reach for the consumer. There are mega stores, and small mom and pop stores to choose from. There is an internet with infinite products, as many as there are stars in the night sky. The free exchange of products, trade and ideas grows the economy and the wealth of this country.

I’m thankful for my liberty. The ability to choose my destination, and the freedom to pursue my dreams and desires. Other countries don’t have such liberties, and many try to immigrate to the United States.  They come here for a chance for a better life. Either because they have limited opportunities in their country, or conditions make it hazardous to live.  Unfortunately, the draw to this country also brings illegal immigrants that include gang members and criminals. There are legitimate immigrants that play by the rules, but illegal immigrants hurt legal immigrants by jumping ahead of the line for citizenship. It is disappointing elected officials favor the illegals over the legal immigrants, because that hurts the country, the economy and opportunities to secure liberty for all. With liberty comes fairness.

I’m thankful for my freedoms. I am free to live my life as I want. I am free to practice the religion of my choice. I am free to live anywhere in the United States without restrictions. I am free to innovate and be as productive as I want. I am free to choose the career of my desires. I am free to move about this country unrestricted. There are those that cannot travel between borders because of their religion, ethnicity, political affiliation, and country of origin. Unless you are a criminal, this country welcomes everyone. With freedom, comes the need for security and the rule of law. Without rule of law, freedoms would not exist and would be severely restricted. This is true for many countries that have no government.

I am thankful for the United States Constitution. Based on the Judaeo-Christian values which our freedoms, liberties and happiness are God given rights. These rights cannot be taken away, because their are granted by our creator. They are basic human rights that provide for the common good of humanity. Which is not to be confused with rights that are given by man, or government, because those right, or entitlements, can be taken away by other men. We are blessed with the wisdom the Founders used to craft the Constitution. No where else is there a more perfect form of government.

I am thankful for the times we live in. We have so many conveniences available at our fingertips today. When I look at how people used to live one hundred, two hundred, even a century ago, we can marvel at the inventions, the medical advances, and shelter we have today. The inventions of the automobile, refrigeration, cooking, washing machines, communication, and the list goes on and one. It makes you wonder about the future innovations and what it will be like five, ten and a hundred years from now. I am reminded of a conversation that Ben Franklin had with a Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia.  She asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” We have kept this republic for over 240 years and hopefully for another 240 years, and beyond. It would be great if other countries would model their government after ours.  So much greatness has this country provided for the world.

For example, slavery was common place in the world when this government was formed. Slavery wasn’t started in the United States, it was abolished, and the rest of the world followed in abolishing the slave trade. That’s not to say slavery has been completely abolished, it still exists in parts of the world. In particular, the Middle East, Africa, and parts of central and south Americas.

The United States is the only country to successfully send men to the moon and back.  It’s sad the country didn’t pursue further space exploration to establish colonies on the moon. So much industry and science advancements have been slowed by not advancing this technology.  Too many have said that we have to worry about the problems on Earth than sending people into space. I think that is a serious missed opportunity. Hopefully, there will be a renewal into the space industry soon.  We were created of star stuff and be belong to live among the heavens.

There are so many other things to be thankful for, but the most important things are family, country and God. At least for me, these are the things are important for me. I have to keep reminding myself of these blessings, because when I see others less advantaged that myself, I get over any grievances I might have.

The bell ringers and kettles are out now that the season of giving is here. However, for me the season is year round. So many disasters and misfortunes have upset many lives and families. So we give whatever we can, when we can. I keep a few extra dollars in my wallet to drop in the kettles when we go shopping.  No big deal, no fanfare, sometimes a check goes to a favorite charity for disaster relief. There are those that have lost everything, some even lost lives, and we grieve for them. I am thankful for everything that I have, and I will share my good fortune with those less fortunate. It is why I am thankful, and appreciative, and who we are as a country, and a people.
