Sorry Cardinal Dolan, but your explanation doesn’t make sense

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

A few weeks ago New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee (SPDC) made a cynical and politically correct decision to allow Gays to march in the parade under a banner proclaiming they are proud sodomites. No one else in the parade is allow to advertise their particular sin; there have been no demands from groups to march under a banner saying “Proud Irish burglars.” But none of this means much to the SPDC.

Those of us who have loved this parade and have fond memories of watching it and marching in it held our collective breath and waited for Cardinal Timothy Dolan the bishop of New York City’s Roman Catholic diocese to respond.  Now his response is here and it is very unsatisfactory.

The Cardinal acknowledged that many of us had contacted him with our concerns. That was the last sensible thing he said. From there he takes out his hand washing bowl and absolves himself of any connection to, or responsibility for, what the SPDC does.

The Cardinal weakly argues that in spite of the Committee’s decision to allow the 253 year old parade to slip from being a Catholic Church celebration to being a secular excuse to drink green beer he sees no problem with what has happened.

He assures us that he supported the old policy of saying no to Gays wanting to march as “Gays.”  Which begs the question: “So what, and?”

He talks about the Church teaching to “love the sinner and hate the sin” still being in effect. He says God loves all of us. Both of these statements are true but miss the point.  In fact the Cardinal misses several points.

1) Cardinal Dolan is either sinister or naïve. Either way this is a bad thing – malus de facto.

2) It clearly hasn’t occurred to the Cardinal that helping celebrate homosexuality is in fact helping to create the near occasion of sin which is also against  the Church’s teachings.

3) Gays are notorious for “losing control” of their own marchers and in several instances Gays have insisted on marching naked. In New York State the laws say women cannot be stopped from walking the streets bare breasted.

4) Perhaps the most serious mistake the Cardinal has made is to fail to recognize that he has been duped and used (at least I hope he was). He was named Grand Marshal so his presence would act as an implied threat against Catholic schools refusing to march.  These schools make up a very large percentage of the groups who march. Their absence would be a black eye for him and the Committee.

Dolan’s selection is to keep them from dropping out. What pastor or school principal wants to make an enemy of the Cardinal, especially in such a public way?

5) What are the teachers and administrators of these schools supposed to say to grade school children who ask about this new group?

6) What the Committee has done and the Cardinal has chosen to be a part of will go down as the worst day in Irish American history since the Draft Riots in 1863.

A Republican wave? Maybe not, but nothing out there really says otherwise

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

I’m so disgusted with the Republicans that I’m actually expecting nothing from the coming election. Nevertheless, there are a few nettlesome facts that kind of stand in the way of those who are ready to throw themselves over a cliff worrying about a Democrat comeback. In Iowa, for example, Joni Ernst is up 6 points in a race that is supposed to be “thisclose.”

In Colorado, Cory Gardiner is up 8 points and Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper is down 10 points.  The actually embattled Mary Landrieu is down 13 points (51/38) to Bill Cassidy in Louisiana and Scott Brown is tied at 48/48 with Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire.  But the biggest “OMG!” for Democrats is the fact that Republican Michael Grimm–the guy who is facing trial on 20 federal counts–is up 4 points in the 11th CD in New York City.  

Democrats are spending millions of dollars and even using pop-ups which say “Hey Grimm is under indictment!” Still Grimm is plus 4 in a Leftist college poll.

What should really worry Democrats is that demographically the district has so much in common with as many as 2 dozen additional  Congressional districts across the nation; and the Democrats hold a registration edge of 40/27! Yet still the Democrat trails.

Apart from a hand wringing, “We don’t understand how embattled Republicans can be leading” article in the Washington Post, there has not been much written in the major media about this potential, coming disaster. Clearly they would rather not report the truth, which is simply: People don’t like what Barack Obama has done to them and they don’t care what Democrats have to say no matter how many times they say it – they’re not listening.

The Grimm race is in New York City for goodness sake! An indicted Republican with not a penny to spend is up by 4 points. Moreover, Grimm is not the only Republican that has or is stunning the liberals with their ability to bounce back and take a lead. Mark Sanford did it; Vance McAllister as well.      

Will there be a Republican wave in November? Maybe not. But right now, in the middle of September, there is little reason to abandon the idea that it just might happen.

Obama is not serious about defeating ISIL

 

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Mullah Obama, Secretary of State Hanoi Kerry and defense stooge Hegel have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to ISIL. Insisting that they will not allow boots on the ground is not only pure political posturing on the part of America’s fearless triumvirate, it’s just plain stupid. They are hoping that cowardly Iraqi security forces and the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels will be America’s proxy army in the fight against fellow Muslims. Obama ordered the CIA train and arm these so-called moderate Muslims and thus was born ISIS. What in the world are these over-educated political windbags thinking when they use rebels that are actively killing Christians in Syria to fight a terrorist group killing Christians in Iraq?  According to The Hill “moderate Syrian rebels and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) had reportedly struck a cease-fire deal.” (2) Yet the only people taking the fight to ISIL are the Kurds! Funny how the team of White House ensconced ex-senators never seems to mention them.

Ignoring the Warfighters

The Obama administration believes it possible to defeat the nation’s enemies through the use of airpower, intelligence, drones, and counter terrorism measures. And after receiving congressional approval for this joke of a strategy, Obama & Co believe they can totally ignore military advisors. (1)  The Great One’s lounge lizard assistants don’t have time to listen to America’s expert military strategists, preferring instead to depend upon their own, unreliable proxy forces. Obama brags of a coalition of more than 40 countries. But who are they and what are they bringing to the fight? How many of them will be used for rendition?  During the past year it has become obvious that Obama’s mistrust of senior military leadership has created a rift between the warfighter and the Commander-in-Chief. Mr. Obama has continued the policy of not permitting the United States Military to take the fight to the enemy.

Political posturing will not defeat ISIL. Although Obama’s current strategy is little more than a pathetic and dangerous joke, to the dependably low-information, Democrat voter it will undoubtedly sound brilliant as it brings brainless voters to the polls in November. Don’t be surprised to see a major bust of ISIS supporters in the United States as an October surprise.

Viciously anti-American Maxine Waters says Sharia Law and our Constitution can co-exist

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

The stink of nervous sweat must be filling the air in the rooms where House Democrats meet. It must be palpable. The conversations about what to do must be totally free-wheeling and without boundaries. Questions of integrity and true patriotism are likely being pushed aside. Survival and maintaining power are the only things that matter. Never one to be concerned about looking anti-American, the extremely self-absorbed Maxine Waters had a thought cross her malevolent mind: “Let’s suck up to the Islamists who are here to kill Americans!”    

Her latest attacks on America came at a recent meeting of the Council of Pakistan Affairs and Islamic Society of Orange County California. Starting from the Democrat, anti-American position that our Constitution is controversial, Waters let loose her spew of hatred for Americanism.  

Waters than made her obligatory accusation against Republicans “attacking the Islamic faith as a national security threat,” which should be true but is not.

From there she supported our enemies by labeling any unfavorable characterization of Sharia Law as “fear mongering.”

Sucking up to the beheaders to get them to contribute to equally anti-American Democrats, the shameless Waters said she is “pushing legislation to ban any racial profiling.”

Knowing how far removed from American culture these Islamists are, Waters probably got a big round of applause for that line.    

She made light of the threats posed by Sharia Law and Islam, which she believes to be compatible with our Constitution, adding that, “… the Muslim community is actively working with law enforcement.”

Given the manifest danger Sharia driven, Islamic savages have already visited upon our society, it is impossible to believe there can be anything but evil intent on the part of those who support Islamic law; but Democrats do so openly.

That someone with such a high position on our government could speak like this is both a monument to greed and lust for power and a blaring warning that Democrats cannot ever be allowed to run our lives.  

This latest episode once again underscores that Democrats have no love of our country and would sell our freedoms to any of our enemies in order to get and maintain power.

Someone should gently inform Maxine Waters that the seventh century savages that adhere to Sharia law are here already and would have no second thoughts about raping old Black women from California, even ones that helped them gain power.

The formation of the Democrat Party: its early years of damaging America Part One

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins 

The question “Who started the Democrat Party?” is not an easy one to answer.  We know Democrats say Thomas Jefferson because he was a member of the  Democratic-Republican Party. Aside from the chronological problems with this claim – Jefferson was long out of active politics before the first actual Democrat president Andrew Jackson was elected- Jefferson stood for things that are exactly opposite of what Democrats have ever stood for. He disliked omnipotent central government and loathed an overly powerful judiciary.    

Clearly, the Democrat Party’s claims to have its roots in the legacy of the great Thomas Jefferson are preposterous.

The most famous personality in the founding of the Democrat Party was Aaron Burr. As the murderer of Alexander Hamilton Burr is the foremost skeleton in the Democrat closet.   

Throughout his life Aaron Burr was the kind of opportunist whose character would allow him to fit well into the company of Democrats from Andrew Jackson (an unindicted co-conspirator in Burr’s treason trial) to the Copperheads of the Civil War era to today’s Democrat voter fraud specialists.

Among the “accomplishments” of this Democrat Party hero are his decades long efforts to undermine the United States as a single functioning country; his killing of Alexander Hamilton in a legal duel; his establishment of the Democrat “exception” to federal law prohibiting private persons from unauthorized foreign policy engagements and the development of New York City’s Tammany Hall into the most corrupt Democrat crime syndicate in American history until Richard Daley’s Chicago.

Democrat Party Founding Father Aaron Burr’s treason

On February 19, 1807 Aaron Burr, at the time was a former Vice President of the United States, was tracked down and arrested in Alabama on federal charges of treason.  His arrest stemmed from his involvement in a plot to seize the formerly French and Spanish Louisiana territories and Mexico in order to establish a new independent nation with Burr as its leader.

Background

The Presidential election of 1800 produced no clear winner with Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr tied, each having received 73 Electoral votes.  After more than 35 re-votes Alexander Hamilton brokered a deal allowing Jefferson to take the majority of votes and become President. At that time candidates for President and Vice President did not run together as a “ticket.” Consequently, as runner up Aaron Burr became Vice President of the Unites States of America.

Given the chance to observer Burr on a regular basis for 4 years as his Vice President, Jefferson refused to support him for re-nomination in 1804. Forced out of office in March 1805 Burr successfully promoted himself to be the leader of a segment of Federalists that did not see a United States of America as being in their personal best interests.

Hamilton, hearing of this movement, did not miss an opportunity to remind anyone who would listen about of the coarse character of the new Federalist group’s leader. In unusually strong language, Hamilton was quoted as saying, he “.. looked upon Mr. Burr to be a dangerous man, and one who ought not to be trusted with the reins of government.” 

On July 11, 1804, his final year as Vice President of the United States, Burr moved to silence Hamilton.  Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel, which at the time was legal although frowned upon. To his great and mortal misfortune, Hamilton accepted and the two men squared off in Weehawken, New Jersey. Burr killed Hamilton and was indicted for murder in both New Jersey and New York, but never stood trial in either state. 

He fled to Washington DC and asserted executive immunity. Jefferson had had enough of Burr and refused to support him for a second term as Vice President.

Immediately after leaving office, Burr joined in the ongoing plot to take half of North America by force, set up his own country and presumably become its dictator for life.  CONTINUED NEXT FRIDAY
