10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 9

Being less on social media has given me more opportunities to read and to watch The Blaze or listen to it in the background during my day. I usually have The Blaze on most of the time anyway however, not being distracted by social media has allowed me to really listen to it during the day.

Pat Gray Unleashed is a favorite! As the Morning Guy I love hearing him when I wake up.  I am thrilled that CRTV’s Steve Deace is now a crossover show on The Blaze. Deace is on after Glenn Beck Radio so the line up is really working for me.

The Blaze Radio

One thing Deace talked about today is how some Republican’s use catch phrases when it comes to getting reelected but the Conservative Review tracks their voting records so you can see if their words are far from their hearts. I like that he brought it up while asking listeners to guess what percentage some of the names circulating themselves through the media are on the Conservative voting scale. 

Oh, if only he could hear me screaming what I know through the television screen. The Scorecard is so my friend when it comes to calling out alleged Republicans in Congress. And I really like to use it when Military people run for office, as though their military service makes them more worthy to sit in the House or Senate. 

I am right there with you Steve. Great shows this week and I look forward to more to come. Thanks for talking about the things that matter to me.

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 8

Reading the news is not social media. Posting my thoughts and reactions on my blog is more like journalism.

When I read this article the other day on the Blaze I about tipped over backwards from rolling my eyes:

Yeah. Right. So now, after the election there is an alleged attempt to possibly have another feigned effort/promise to be finally kept by the GOP to do what the people have wanted done on Day 1 of the Trump Presidency? Now there is a bravado on the tail end of the small and #NotPermanentTaxCuts, #FullRepealEpicFail and the #Cromnibus?

Rachel Bovard discusses some of my thoughts in her article Building the Wall After All?:

“For the last two years, House Republicans have been frustrated as their leadership remains content to allow the Senate to call the shots, unwilling to engage openly in favor of their own priorities. (Or, for that matter, their own bills. Nearly 600 House bills are languishing in the Senate, waiting for action.)”

And this bill touted by Kevin McCarthy, who might be out to kill the Jim Jordan nomination for Speaker of the House as the Paul Ryan replacement?

Uh, it truly seems calculated, disingenuous, duplicitous, and extremely manipulative in this eleventh hour. I would have been more impressed if McCarthy insisted the House go on the record BEFORE this election cycle instead of afterwards.

On another note…

Glenn Beck had a great program today with his guest Dr. James Lindsay.  Seriously, you have to listen to the entire interview. It is absolutely brilliant.

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 3

Years ago Boyd K. Packer taught

True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior.

The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. Preoccupation with unworthy behavior can lead to unworthy behavior. That is why we stress so forcefully the study of the doctrines of the gospel.

He reiterated it years later in another sermon:

Doctrine can change behavior quicker than talking about behavior will.

What doctrine, or better yet, Whose doctrine are you following?

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 2

Kevin Ryan of The Blaze is a very interesting read. Here are links to his latest insights:

  1. In-Depth: Michael Rectenwald Crosses the Street

  2. In-Depth: Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin and the Long-Distance Call

  3. In-Depth: Dave Rubin’s Idea Revolution

Lots of changes going on at The Blaze. Pat Gray is going to mornings to take over the Doc Thompson slot. Doc is striking out on his own. Steve Deace from CRTV is moving into the Noon slot.

Thinking about purchasing #AddictedToOutrage by Glenn Beck.

Religious Freedom: It must be fought for

The ability to read, ponder, and then act upon the ideas you formulate through critical thinking matter. It is important to preserving personal freedom. You never know who you may influence through your open and honest approach to seeing things as they really are. 

Why America’s religious freedom ambassador thinks everyone can help ‘fight’ for this ‘foundational’ right

Remember when…..? 

Shapiro: Supreme Court: Be polite when you violate others’ rights

Religious Freedom

Never to be conquered: We, the People, must #FrameTheDebate

Mike Lee deserves far more respect and support than he currently gets from the PRL (Progressive Republican Leadership). He is one of the most measured men in the Senate. He is thoughtful. He is prudent. He is a superb listener. He is a scholar of the United States Constitution. He has a great capacity to act with decisiveness and in wisdom. He is a man never to be conquered. And then there are others, like Mike Lee, who are never to be conquered.

Jim DeMint is one of those men and he founded the Conservative Partnership Institute to help We, the People, help those in Washington, D.C. who are trying to #DrainTheSwamp

Jenny Beth Martin, founder of the Tea Party Patriots, is a woman never to be conquered. She continues to press the PRL to keep their promises.

Dennis Prager is doing an amazing work through his Prager University online videos

Janine Turner’s Constituting America is a fabulous organization for she, like Mr. Prager and Mr. DeMint understand the foundational education process necessary to bring up the next generation of Conservative Guardians for our Nation.

Larry Arn of Hillsdale College was one of the first to initiate free online classes to help enlighten the masses about our divinely inspired Constitution. His programs have inspired many fine young people to enter into the political realms, armed with knowledge well steeped in original thoughts from the framers of our government.

This list is not an exhaustive one. It is one where I choose to place my time and or money in support of men and women never to be conquered. 

And one more thing. Be sure to watch THE SWAMP, Episodes 1 – 3. 

 

 

 

Get a Survey that Matters, Puh-lease!

“Take My May 2018 Constituent Survey!”

Screen Shot 2018-06-05 at 9.37.46 PM.png
Here is the screenshot of the survey.

Why? Why? Why should I take that survey?

Seriously. What are you going to do with the answers from this Two Question survey? 

How about you get a real survey that matters and then explain your positions on the following questions: 

 

  1. Are you hoping to
  2. have an Amnesty Deal in place?
  3. Will you sign on to an Amnesty Deal, the discharge petition for H.Res. 774?
  4. Do you think you should vote against Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants?
  5. What action do you think Congress should take regarding Sanctuary Cities? 
  6. Do you support Obamacare? 
  7. Will you FULL REPEAL Obamacare? 
  8. Will you replace Obamacare with a truly FREE MARKET?
  9. What are you doing to get government bureaucrats out of Healthcare? 
  10. Will you vote to give all unused tax dollars back to the taxpayers?
  11. Do you support unused tax dollars staying in a congressional slush fund? 
  12. Will you, before the midterm election, vote for a $15.4 billion rescissions package? 
  13. Do you agree that bureaucrats have excessive rule making authority? 
  14. Do you believe you, and your fellow congressional colleagues, have the obligation and reposnsibility to check and balance excessive rule making bureaucrats from oppressing people ?

If you have an opinion on North Korea, more power to you. If you want to know what other people think, then ask questions about that which you have power to vote on and legislate for the sake of Conservative/Libertarians. 

 It would be really lovely if you would pick a side and then frame the debate with your thoughts so we know what you think
