A National Day Of Prayer

President Donald J. Trump declares September third, twenty thousand and seventeen, a National Day of Prayer.  He’s the first President in my lifetime that invites religious leaders into the Oval Office to offer prayers of support and guidance.  He’s humble enough to bow his head in prayer for the people of this country. That is truly unique and refreshing. With Trump, it’s not about him, it’s about the people.

We haven’t had a day of prayer in a long time in this country, and it’s about time. Too often politicians are too politically correct to appease the terminally offended. These are the same people that mock people of faith, and the politicians pander to these people. One former President labeled people of faith as “Bitter Clingers“, those that cling to their guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.  However, this leftist President didn’t stop there, he also made a racist remark that these people of faith are white working class Americans, non-college educated, frightened, struggling, politically misguided, and anesthetized into believing that more guns and more God would solve their problems.  Pretty insulting to the voting middle America. This was a speech given to wealthy coastal liberals that look down on middle, or fly-over, America.

President Donald Trump reminds me of President Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln wasn’t church going and deeply religious President, but he read the Bible from cover to cover, and he could recite passages as if he was an Evangelist preacher. President Trump isn’t a church going President either, but he has repetitively said he gets his inspiration from the Bible.  Unlike a former President that sat in a church of hate for over 20 years, and was married by, and had his children baptized by, the very same preacher that damned America.

President Trump is hardly a Bible thumper, but his reverence and respect for Judaeo-Christian values is reflected in the values the Founders designed into the Constitution. Yet, the left calls President Trump antisemitic even though his daughter is married to a Jew, and she converted to an orthodox Jew. How does a antisemite then put his own daughter as one of his closes advisers in the White House? Actions often speak louder than words, and with some former Presidents that did attended churches, they seem rather phony in retrospect.

Both President Trump and Vice-President Pence are men of humble reverence, and I cannot be more proud to call them both leaders of the United States of America and the Free World. This is what I would expect in true leadership for this country. There a commonsense approach to governance by these men that the country has been lacking for a long, long, time.  I definitely feel safer and more confident about the future of this country.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Melania Trump watch the solar eclipse from the White House in Washington

Despite a swamp of treachery from both parties in congress, President Trump’s energy level is amazing. I was also impressed by the First Lady Melania Trump, as religious as she is, especially when she recited the Lord Prayer. A Catholic in the White House since JFK. There seems to be no end to the surprises with this family. Preconceived notions by media appearances painted a different picture in the public’s perception. Along with a hostile press and a corrupt political system, these Trump outsiders to the swamp, the Sodom and Gomorrah of American politics, they seem unfazed by all the criticism. A strength to their character.

So I will pray for them and our great country. I shudder to think what would have been the alternative. Our prayers were granted for President Trump’s election.  We will continue to pray for his success in guiding this country. We will continue to pray for our country and for all the citizens of the United States of America. Amene!

The Best And Worse Times

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” ― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

I borrowed this quote to illustrate a point in American history, that no matter how much evil exists in the world, there is always the indomitable spirit of people who believe in Life, Liberty and Happiness. No matter the desperation of their situation. In life there is always moments of great joy and excruciating sadness.  No where could this be found but in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey that struck Houston Texas.

This picture shows the extent of the humanity at its greatest. People helping people in need. Citizens stepped up and helped with the rescue efforts. The government stretched to the limits to shelter and assist people in their time of need.  The first responders (Police, Fire, EMS), quickly became overwhelmed with the amount of water from Hurricane Harvey. So without any calls for assistance, the citizens stepped up.

From Louisiana and East Texas came the Cajun Navy with their boats. The call quickly went out for more people with boats that could navigate waters in and around Houston.  The National Guard helicopters that were grounded during the torrential rains finally took to the air performing rescue operations. The rescue coordination was remarkable.  National support by religious leaders volunteered their time, money and comfort to aid those that lost everything.

Family members, including pets, rescued from rising flood waters.

Texas cowboys are amazing. They are as resourceful as our Hawaiian Paniolo’s.

Rescuing Drowning cattle and horses.

An amazing sight of cattle, horses and pets being rescued from the rising flood waters. 

 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott and President Donald Trump coordinated early before the storm hit to expedite funds and emergency services. These proactive steps are helping with the recovery effort. The scope of the damage is enormous; however, the priority is on saving lives and rescuing people. That is the purpose and number one job of government; to protect the citizens.

I don’t remember in my lifetime any President declaring his love for country and the people as President Trump often does. When President Trump addressed the people of Corpus Christi to let Texans know that help was on the way, and then the thunderous cheers when the President unfurled the Texas State flag was moving to many in Texas and all around the country. Despite the President’s critics, he’s doing a great job. His energy level is insatiable. That’s the kind of President I want. I don’t want political correctness, indecisive, timid leaders. This is what makes America strong, and great.  God bless the people of Houston Texas, and God Bless The United States of America.

 

 

 

 

The Sickness Of The Left

 

The left is a sickness that congratulates itself, and competes on how to much more sicker they can get.  The rise of fascism within the left has become more violent and more destructive.  The left’s labeling of anyone that doesn’t agree with them as bigots, racists, homophobes, islamophobes, misogynists, and xenophobes has also been echoed by the leftist media.  That has been going on for a very long time.

Remembering that the leftist media, and what President Trump rightly renamed as Fake News, has excoriated every Republican President unfairly and with impunity.  Even members of Congress, the left-wing socialist democrats of Congress, and now some (RINO) Republicans, have joined to further dishonor their office by making false accusation of bigotry against President Trump.  They have no evidence, no examples, no actual statements, and no history of President Trump being a white supremacist, a racist, nor a bigot. Yet, the fake news media would have you believe otherwise. The media is going to ignore all of President Trump’s previous statements denouncing bigotry and racism. The fascist leftist media just will not accept President Trump’s answers.  It’s a deliberate smear by a leftist media that does support Nazism and Racial Supremacy.  How do I know? Because the leftist media never calls out the blatant racist remarks by members of the socialist democrat party, because they are all in the same club of racist bigotry.

After eight years of the Obama regime, where racial division was encouraged, and the racist “black lives matter” evolved. The rise of socialism evolved from the “occupy wall street” crowd into the violent “antifa” (anti-First Amendment) fascists.  The Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Obama crowd that wants income equality at the point of a gun. Resulting in a Sanders supporter that actually went hunting for Republicans, and shot a Republican member of Congress. This was also echoed by Obama’s manufacturing Czar (again, another Russian reference), Ron Bloom, that praised Mao Tse Tung and his belief of power that comes from a barrel of a gun. The Obama regime was laying the groundwork for insurrection and violence, under the guise of leftist anti-fascism.

The Fake News Media never called out this open threat to liberty. Yet, they fake news media, and members of government, are claiming that President Trump didn’t adequately denounce White Supremacy.  Yet, the fascist terror antifa group gets a pass for their violent acts. President Trump denounced all of them, over and over, but it’s just not good enough for the socialist democrat bigots in the democRat party and fake news media. They play the race card.  Ever wonder why the antifa fascist cover their faces? So they cannot be identified by the police. Even though the police have been told to stand-down by the leftist mayors and governors. It seems the mayors and governors in democrats cities and states are welcoming the violence as room for destructive violence.

The fake news media and racist democRats have called President Trump an anti-Semite. Yet his daughter Ivanka is married to a Jew, and she is an orthodox Jew, with children being raised as Jews. How could President Trump be an anti-Semite? The fake news media accuses President Trump of having White Supremacists in his circle of influence. The accusers are known socialist fascists, but the fake news media ignores these pesky little facts. Meanwhile, the voters see this hatred for our President and we are not listening to these talking heads.

 

Not much has changed since the Nazism, but the tactics remain the same. Property destruction, physical assaults, and mob mentality. Only the uniforms change.  President Trump said that both sides are at fault, and they are. There is no difference in the level of fascism by any groups that use violence and intimidation to spread fear. The manufactured outrage over President Trump’s blaming both sides has me wondering if the media and some corrupt politicians favor one fascist group over the other. I suspect it is so, because I don’t see the difference between Nazis, antifa, and other violent fascist groups. I’m astonished by the backlash and unfair condemnation of President Trump by people who claim to be for peaceful demonstrations, but fail to see that both sides were looking for a fight. For that, the President has been called a racist. It’s simply not true and there is a history to prove it.

Character assassination is the method of operation with the left. They create the hysteria and foment the violence. The term “alt-right” never appeared in the lexicon until after Trump’s nomination.  It was created by fascists with the desire to spread fear, loathing, and violence. Now, because President Trump is not a part of the political establishment, not a part of the elitist fake media, and not a part of the Washington cocktail circuit, he’s ostracized by the swamp he campaigned against, and the swamp is fighting back to keep their empire.

How can you have moral clarity when dealing with a immoral political establishment? Congress is morally bankrupt. The media is a cesspool of fake news journalism.  Mitch McConnell (Senate Leader), and Paul Ryan (House Speaker),  promised a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, but they lied. They might as well be socialist democrats, because they are going the way of the Whig party.  The weak leadership of the republican party that promised to restore a free market healthcare system, failed miserably. I will go as far as deliberately. They lied. They had no intention to fulfill their promises.  Just as Obama lied about the American Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare.  My own party has abandoned me. If they are voted out of office and this nation moves to a socialist government, they will inherent the blame. Rightly so, because elected officials that fail to keep their promises will willingly give up their office to the next scumbag that will promise and not deliver.

 

Now that the fascist leftist democrats are running around removing, and rewriting history.

This is all a part of the goal to destroy this country.

Moral Decay

 

 

 

Achievable Visions

hailimoe

Trump’s speech last night was a marvelous example of a Presidential vision for the future of America.  It was the right tone where people could relate to a positive vision for the country.  The speech was unifying, uplifting and at times emotional.  Especially when President Trump recognized and praised the widow of the Navy Seal, Chief William “Ryan” Owens.  It was hard to hold back tears for Carryn Owens as she received the largest and longest standing ovation applause I’ve ever seen at the Joint Meeting of Congress.  It was truly moving.

What was disappointing was the behavior of the democrats during the speech.  Some democrats refused to acknowledge Carryn Owens and remained seated.  The democrat women wore white at the Joint Address and made rude jesters during the President’s speech.  Perhaps it is the legacy of the democrat party history.

demoskkk3

I thought the speech was substantive and eloquent.  Well delivered and inclusive.  If this is the template for the next four years, hopefully eight in total, then this President has a promising future and so does the country.  The democrats future, not so much.

The Lords Prayer

I think this is the first time in United States history that a First Lady recited the Lords Prayer.  This is so humbling and lucid.

God Bless this family and their supporters.  We need to help them be successful.  We need to make America successful.

Timeless Beginnings

timelessTomorrow, January 20th 2017, at 12 noon EST, will be the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America.  The peaceful transition of power continues in the American tradition.  Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States.

However, peaceful isn’t in the purview of the liberal leftist democrat.  They prefer violence over peace.  From democrats congress people boycotting Trump’s inauguration, to the riots, property damage, and absurd gay demonstrations on Vice President Mike Pence’s home.  A disgusting vulgar display of fascism by democrats.  It is the history of their party.

2017 Congressional Democrat Group Photo

I don’t remember any riots by conservative demonstrators during Obama’s 8 years as president.  If there were, the slobbering media that protected and defending Obama, would have reported it.  It would have been front page news for weeks.  There’s would be a media public court convicting and declaring racism against Obama, but it never happened.

It’s no wonder why the fly-over America people, the accursed bitter clingers that Obama ridiculed as bigots and religious intolerant, had decided that they have had enough of being called racists in their own country.  Only because they had Christian beliefs and opinions that didn’t conform with the ‘#FakeNews’ liberal secular media, and the socialist ideology of social justice.

I call this post ‘Timeless Beginnings‘, because it represents the pendulum of political change. The change that Obama promised was dreadfully hopeless. Trump enters with a new idea of change.  Restorative change. When that pendulum arm swing reached to its apex and begins to move towards restoring reason and sanity. Timeless because of the tradition of the transfer of power, and the Beginnings of a change in traditional politics.  For generations, since the inception of this great nation, United States Presidents were politicians.  That all ended now that Trump was elected.  A no nonsense business man that created a fortune in real estate.  Granted that he had a privileged upbringing, but many other Presidents also came from wealth and privilege.

Obama also benefited from the same privilege. Despite being a bastard child of communist parents, he went to expensive schools and was afforded all the opportunities of a wealthy spoiled offspring.  Despite becoming the most powerful man in the world, Obama squandered away his opportunities for a great legacy, and now Obama has no accomplishments to show.  All the damage Obama did to this country will be erased.  I could not be more pleased. After 8 years of government mismanagement, the media cannot defend Obama’s farce anymore.  The immunity of crying racism is over.

trumplincoln

Unlike Obama that needed Hollyweird fake greek columns to create a god like emanation for his failed legacy, Trump uses the Lincoln Memorial to put in perspective the enormity of the task before him.  Humility isn’t something that Obama displayed during his tenure in office.  Just the opposite.  Obama displayed contempt and vindictiveness against anyone that opposed him, and he use the power of the government to exact revenge.  I’m hoping that Trump doesn’t follow in that leftist example.

We have no idea the direction that Trump will take this country, but there are clues.  Clues that are refreshing and positive.  Trump’s cabinet positions are some of the best in the industry has to offer.  They are not just cronies, and yes men, and yes women.  They are critical and driven like Trump.  They have unique skills that will help this country’s needs.  They are successful, and they don’t need to do this Congressional clown show of job interviews.  They are different than the crony appointments that never met the bar of accomplishments.  Such is the legacy of Obama.

I don’t know how Trump will govern, but I like the fact he doesn’t speak about himself as Obama has done.  Trump is inclusive and speaks inclusively.  Unlike Obama, who spoke only about himself.  It was only about Me, Myself and I.  It will be refreshing to hear about US.

Hot Air In Hawai’i

As we get started in the 2012 election cycle, a number of polls and surveys are floating around asking who your favorite candidate is.  Given that many of these polls can be subjective to the questions asked and who is being asked.   Some polls sample groups as large as 1,000, is that large enough to get a realistic view of that people are thinking?  To date, I’ve only been involved in less than a handful of polls regarding political preferences and that been over the phone.

In Hawai’i, many people will blindly vote to reelect Obama and the reasons range from; he was born here, to, I really like the free government stuff.  However, a lot can happen between now and December 2012.  As the cost of food, gas, and other necessities keep rising, along with unemployment, the changes for any incumbent to be reelected becomes slim to none.  But after all, Hawai’i did vote in a “Tax and Spend” Governor.  So much for objective and responsible voting.

The Republican field of candidates remains large.  To date, there are some 26 potential contenders for the President of the United States.  Some of the candidates are serious, some are just wishful, and some are just a joke.  Assuming that Obama will go unchallenged by his own party, the polling focus will be on who the Republican favorite will be to challenge Obama.

For weeks, polls have been focused on a candidate’s favorable rating.  Usually they poll about ~1,000 people, but often times they never give the demographics.  Even when they do, it’s sometimes hard to really get a good picture of where and how distributed the polling data is gathered.  For example, a poll was done about Sarah Palin’s negativity numbers.  They sampled about 700 people.  Where?  In Long Island, NY, a liberal enclave of democrats.

HotAir.com Greenroom writer, Patrick Ishmael, has developed a unique way of visualizing polling data.  Using a program called Tableau to take the collected polling data and creating a graphic display of the results.  The information collected from the individual is done once.  The Zip Code and Telephone Area code is captured to get the geographic location of the polled individual, along with other information such as age and sex.  The next series of questions has the polled individual responding to their Presidential favorite, Vice Presidential, alternate if their favorite doesn’t run, and a series of questions based on political ideology.   You don’t have to be registered with Hot Air to take the poll, and the poll is designed to prevent the democrat practice of voting often.  This way the polling data collected is reasonably an accurate reflection of the individual.  Over 6,000 responded!

Each candidate in the poll is color coded to easily recognize the geographic location of those responding to the poll.  You can click on the candidates name on the list on the left to filter out the other candidates.  The map allows to pan and zoom into locations to a more detailed view.  Additionally, hover your cursor over any of the color coded circles displays the Presidential preference and the Zip Code.  In addition to a plethora of graphs and charts that breaks down the polling data into easy to see, the data can be combined with past polling data to see trends.

While the 48 contiguous states are displayed, the map controls all you to see the States of Alaska and Hawai’i.  I had always wondered if there were other people in Hawai’i that were Hot Air readers, and apparently there are quite a few.

There were more Hot Air readers in the State of Hawai’i than I had ever imagined.  I knew of some readers on O’Ahu, but I had no idea there were readers on Moloka’i!  In previous poll maps, there was at least one reader on Kaua’i Island, that didn’t show up on this round of polling.  However, Maui and Moloka’i was a surprise.

Here’s my humble contribution to the polling data.  One thing is for sure, for each poll that was conducted, a clear winner has constantly surfaced, and that has been Gov. Sarah Palin, and by very wide margins.  In this round of polling, out of the 6,000+ polled, the former Alaskan Governor garnered a health lead of 27% of the votes.  This has not been the first poll where Sarah Palin came out on top.

Again, since these polls have been conducted, the winner each time has been Gov. Sarah Palin, by a wide margin.  The other potential candidates seem to ebb and flow with the political tides.

Why has Sarah Palin been at the top of each of these polls?  I really don’t know given the swath of Hot Air reader’s views, especially in the comment sections.

I admit that if Sarah Palin does decide to run, I will vote for her.  However, there are some really solid candidates that I would consider should Sarah Palin not run for President of the United States.

However, it way too early, in my view, for anyone to determine who will be the eventual front runner, that will defeat Obama in 2012.  Also, there are some candidates that are just pure jokes, such as Donald Trump, who is nothing more than a circus clown vying for attention.  As we get closer to the Fall, and into the 2012 New Year, a front runner will eventually appear.  Till then, it’s anyone race.

From what I can gather, there are Hot Air readers that participated in this poll located on the Big Island Hawai’i in Mountain View, Na’alehu, Captain Cook, Kailua-Kona, and Waikoloa Village, besides me in Kea’au.  It’s refreshing to learn there are more like minded people here than I’ve ever imagined.
