OBAMA SANCTIONS; TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE, SO HYPOCRITICAL

I am no fan of Putin (although he did make Obama look like a wus), and I do agree that there are, more than likely, many reason for sanctions against Russia. But … as far as Russia interfering with this election … where is the proof? In the eight years that Obama has had to retaliate against Russia … he chooses now … and … something with no concrete evidence? (And, really … the “sanctions” are pretty lame.) Actually, about as lame as Obama telling Putin to, “Cut it out.” (How embarrassing.)

Where is the proof that Russia is responsible for the hacking during the election?

Julian Assange has said it was NOT Russia.

Now, for those that are saying why believe Assange? Because, if you have posted in support, and believed everything else that Assange has said, previously … then, wouldn’t it be hypocritical, and shortsighted, to not believe Assange, concerning this? Maybe we could call that … “convenient faith.”

And … here’s the hypocritical part (really So “Obama”) Seriously Obama, it is beneath other countries to “interfere” with a country’s election?? Seriously? Am I the only one who remembers Israel’s 2015 election … and Obama’s interference?

The Flag Was Never Just A Piece Of Cloth To Me

I was Navy. The American flag was never just a piece of cloth to me.  It is one of our most cherished national symbols. Let’s don’t confuse this symbol with a “symbol” representing a football team or a chicken franchise.

The red and white stars represent the thirteen original colonies.  Those …. Colonies … were built by the blood, the sweat and the strife of real men and women, facing unknown dangers, starvation, and separations from friends and family, left behind, in other countries.

The blue canton represents “unity.”  It stands for the unity of people coming together to create this great Republic, and swearing allegiance as one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all Americans.  And, before any one jumps on the “for all Americans” thing, I am referring to when this flag was created and updated to symbolize all 50 states.  I am not talking about the “Pledge of Allegiance, “when, and why the word America …was added.  Let’s stay focused.

The stars represent each state in the Republic of America.  The stars don’t just represent a specific state.  They again … represent all the brave men and women who fought (and those who died) for state sovereignty and to be recognized as a part of this great nation.

I watch people, who have been given more opportunity to do something with their lives than in any other country, chant hate slogans and burn the flag … and, it sickens me.

I watch people who claim to be historians, Constitutionalists, and political authoritarians … smile condescendingly … while reminding viewers and listeners that this is one of those “unalienable rights” of all Americans.

But, there is one word that keeps being kept out of the conversation … and, that is … responsibility.  With rights, come responsibilities.  It is the responsibility of respecting the rights … and feelings … of others, as well as our own.

It is the responsibility of honoring those who have come before us and who have fought and died to preserve the very rights that, so many abuse, today.

Our American Flag has been carried from battleground to battleground in the fight for our liberty and our freedoms, as a country, and, in protecting others.  While it was sometimes torn and shredded, somewhat … it prevailed.

Our American Flag is a symbol of our American history and it is a declaration of all that we have had to fight for, endure, and overcome.

That symbol should not be trivialized to mean nothing more than a “piece of cloth” or a cell-phone symbol.

The American Flag is a symbol which represents the very heart and soul of everything that is America, the good and the ugly.  It represents and honors the good men and women who have fought bravely to preserve our rights and freedoms.  It represents the pain, the heartache, the tears, the sacrifices, and the deaths of real people who helped to make, and preserve our Republic of America.

The events that have framed America … the people that lived and died for this country … are now a part of history.  They are no longer with us.  But … our American Flag is still here.  She is still waving in honor of those people and as a reminder of all that is America.

No, the American Flag is NOT just a piece of cloth, as some say.  It symbolizes the very soul of America, it is the history of America … and it is a constant reminder of the glory and the greatness that America can be for future generations.  Our flag should be revered and honored, not ripped apart and burned.  One has that right, to be sure … but with that right, comes responsibility, and the duty of respect … for the very object … that symbolizes that right.

HAMILTON AIMED HIGH … AND MISSED AGAIN

There has been much “ado” about the “bad performance” of the audience attending the “Hamilton” Broadway play, when Vice President-Elect Pence and family arrived.

While I don’t think the actor’s words, at the closing “grand-finale” were necessarily “offensive” to Pence, I do feel that using the stage and his profession for a political platform, distasteful.

Art forms, including theater, are one place where people, despite their differences, should be able to assemble in harmony, and escape the out-side forces that divide us.

I also felt the “boos” were uncalled for and inexcusable at such an event.  The fact that it was in New York (as one reporter indicated) is not an excuse for poor behavior.  It should also be noted that there were also cheers, while perhaps not as loud.

The less than dramatic “statement” … read … by the actor in character of Aaron Burr fell flat, in my opinion because, while it was an admonishment to Vice President-Elect for more “inclusiveness” in the upcoming administration … and, inclusiveness, was clearly … not the message sent by the audience or the performers

Vice President-Elect Pence attended a Broadway play with his family, sitting in an audience with a diversity of culture, race and nationality, to watch a play featuring black actors performing in the role of characters, based on white people.  He was there to enjoy the play, to support the performing arts and to share that love with everyone around him.  And yet, those very people screaming for “inclusiveness,” showed Pence the very opposite.  They chose to boo him and they chose to set him apart and not include him.

As far as I am concerned, the Broadway show, “Hamilton” aimed high … but missed … once again.

The Beginning of “The Beginning”

I am excited to announce that “The Promise Book; Tell Someone” is now available at Amazon.com and at www.thisisdebbiebarth.com.  The book is the key to the vehicle allowing parents to talk with their small children about child predators without frightening or intimidating them.  The website, for this book, also includes a blog that will express my experiences, as well as the experiences of others.  From time to time, I will share those blogs, here as well.

However, I will also continue my thoughts on all subjects known to mankind.  So … stay tuned.

Here is the first blog from my new www.thisisdebbiebarth.com.  The subject matter is not always easy to write about, but, it is a subject that needs to be addressed … and, combated.

 

Only The Beginning

 

It was a day … just like any other day.  The walk home from elementary school … was like any other walk.  Yes, it was like any other day … until she walked through the front door, into the living room.

He appeared to be asleep, with his face and body turned toward the back sofa cushions.  He was completely undressed.  He must have heard her come in, and knew that she was standing there.  He turned over, looked at her … and smiled.

She was feeling uncomfortable, and yet, unable to move.  He was lying there, undressed, now … staring at her.  He had such a strange smile on his face.  He told her to come closer.  She did.

He took her hand and put on his … “private part.”  It was so quite in the house.  She couldn’t breathe.  His smile became even wider, even stranger.  And then … he let her hand go.

He said, “go change your clothes and go out and play.”

She ran to her room, closed the door, changed clothes hurriedly, and then ran through the kitchen and … out the back door.  She wasn’t sure what had just happened … but … she was glad it was over.

What she didn’t know …was that it was just beginning ….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Unfortunately, child predators are often the people closest to the child.  Please look for the signs.  Trust your own instincts.  And, protect your children.  Don’t rely on them to tell you something is wrong.  They won’t, unless you have talked to them, beforehand.  Prepare them.  Let them know … before it happens … that they can “tell someone,” no matter who the abuser is.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope that you will also take some time to drop by website, at www.thisisdebbiebarth.com and look at this beautiful book, “The Promise Book; Tell Someone,” aimed at helping parents talk with their small children about child predators in a way that is not frightening or intimidating.

So, you are now really seeing the different sides of Debbie Barth … because … “this is really Debbie Barth.”

IF TRUMP HAD SAID “YES,” GUESS WHAT THE MEDIA WOULD HAVE DONE

Just like Anthony Weiner, Miley Cyrus, and Geraldo Rivera, the media is exposing itself, again … and “it’s not pretty.”

If you listened to the debate last night, you know exactly what I am talking about.

The media might as well hold up signs that say “Globalist and proud of it!  We’re opening borders, and closing down individual thinking, one lie at a time.”

All the Liberal and Republican news “entertainment” shows are talking about is that Donald J. Trump will not accept the election results.  Actually, he basically said, he would “wait and see.”  The only story here is that some people are offended by logic, and truth.

Chris Wallace saved the question for last, probably expecting this very answer from Trump.  He planned it well.

The thing is, Donald Trump, a few minutes earlier … had spent time referring to the Project Veritas Videos- Part 1 and 2 , addressing actual conversations, and proving the existence of rigged campaigning and the possibility of rigged voting booths.  Trump referred to the damaging Wiki-leaks emails confirming, in essence, the message of the videos.  Now, with that being said … I would then conclude that Trump would have been condemned, no matter what he said.  Whether it was, “let’s wait and see” … “no” … or, “why, yes … absolutely I will accept the results.”  There would have been an onslaught of attacks, today.  And, here is why.

If he had given the “hypocritical, standard,  “PC” reply”, then the media would be ripping him apart for saying that he would accept the results … just minutes after saying this campaign and more than likely, the voting system, itself, is rigged.  The media would have then down-played the recent videos and wiki-leaks, as simply … “of little importance,” since Trump had no problem, accepting the upcoming election results.

But, being the honest and logical (what a concept) leader that Donald J. Trump is … he said, “I will wait and see, and let you know.”  He didn’t pander, he didn’t waiver … he told the truth.  And, what he said makes all the sense in the world.

The media will not, now, be able to disavow the videos or wiki-leaks, using Trump as an example of why the videos and wiki-leaks emails are not relevant.

The media is also not reminding the American people that some of the Republican Candidates lied when they said they would support whoever the Candidate may be, during the primary.  They lied, and their actions prove it.

Only Fox (to my knowledge and as I write this) has mentioned that Clinton, herself, did not accept the results in 2002, nor did Bill Clinton.  And, Al Gore actually tried to bring legal action because he felt he had been robbed of votes.

Yes, the media, and its owners are Globalists.  They want open borders (Democrats, Republicans, and all who will profit, while the American Republic goes down in flames.)  They will do everything possible to take down Donald Trump.  And, yet this man is still standing, proud and strong, with a resounding message of love for this country, and our Republic.

And, the media … the media continues to expose itself to the American people, in desperation for attention and validation.  They have bared their soulless agenda.  And, again … like Anthony Wiener, Miley Cyrus, and Geraldo Rivera … “it is so not pretty.”

WHAT YOU ARE REALLY VOTING FOR THIS YEAR

I am surprised at some of the people who say they aren’t voting for either candidate, in November. Some think that it “sends a message” to the government, and some feel that, somehow … it cancels out another vote (note sure about the math with this one) and some say that it will not make a difference.

I think that if you just set there … and you don’t vote … you don’t do anything, but complain in social media or to each other … how do you feel this is actually sending a message to anyone that is really pertinent in government, or that it will lead to change? Frankly, I think you are letting the government off the hook and you are “complying” … not … “sending a message.” If you are actually doing the math, it isn’t staying home that counts … it’s actually voting.

And … YES, votes do count and that is what sends the message to the government. Not a temper tantrum or some kind of misguided sense of “superiority of character and what’s best for this country,” based on doing nothing because … one’s choice of candidate didn’t get nominated.

And, YES … voting WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE … and one that will be seen.

You aren’t just voting for a person. You are voting for open … or … closed borders. You are voting for continued usurpation and overspending of this government … or … stopping usurpation and overspending.

You are voting for a continuing racial division in this country … or … bringing people together, through conversations based on their love for this country, personal respect for each other, and a drive to bring back jobs and better education for all.

You are voting for elevating the risk for terrorism in this country … by bringing more immigrants into this country, who are not properly vetted. Or, you are voting for common sense in the fight against Islamic Radical Terrorism.

You are voting for more gun control, making it more difficult for innocent, law-abiding people to take protect their families … or … the enforcement of the gun laws already on the books and the preservation of our 2nd amendment.

You are voting for who will be the next confirmed Supreme Court Justice (Perhaps as many as three) and future landmark rulings.

You are not just voting for a person. You are voting for what that person will do once in office.

Never has the difference in policies been so different. Never has the sanctity of our Bill of Rights and our U.S. Constitution, our economy, our education, our future … our country … been on the line as it is now.

I may not agree with your choice, but to not vote at all is letting down every man and women who has fought for the very right to vote.

No, simply because you don’t like the candidates who are running … two very different fates are in the hands of the winner in November. And, you will help to seal that fate.

You are NOT just voting for Hillary R. Clinton or Donald J. Trump. You are voting for the Republic of America … or not.

Feeling Blue and Seeing Red Because Hillary Clinton Won’t Be Wearing Orange

So, here’s my thought on the decision of F.B.I. Director Comey.  While he did confirm that she had lied about some classified info in her email, and that she was grossly negligent (this should have gotten her the indictment, but didn’t), and that she is extremely careless … according to him … it was at his “discretion” not … to indict her.  I am as mad as everyone (who cares about this country).  But after I calmed down, I stopped to consider the ramifications if she was indicted.

Yes, she would have to step out of the election and then there would be more taxpayer money spent on her trial. So, the only good I see in her indictment is that she would not have been able to run for the Presidency. And, some would have felt … vindicated.  Perhaps, some of our “faith” in the government process would have been vindicated.  Perhaps.

I actually think that this decision … in the long run … will work in favor of those who oppose her, and want Trump to win this election.

If she stepped down now, there is a very good chance that “Uncle” Joe Biden would have stepped in.  There is also the chance that Elizabeth Warren might have been selected as V.P.

While “Uncle” Joe is considered by some as a likeable “bungler” of sorts, he does not carry the decades-long baggage of Hillary Clinton.  Elizabeth Warren echoes many of the same sentiments as Bernie Sanders and would have gotten the vote from the Sanders people who may have voted for Trump out of sheer hatred for H. Clinton.

I frankly believe that Donald Trump has a better chance of beating Hillary than he would a Biden/Warren ticket.  We would then have a third term of Obama, and … we could say “bye-bye” to our Republic of America.

So, does the “Comey decision” make many people angry and confirm our distrust of our government officials?  I would say it absolutely does.  I believe that the “fix” was in.  I believe this decision was based on bribes, greed and corruption.  I believe that the F.B.I Director was wrong.  I believe that AG Loretta Lynch will remember, fondly, her “chance meeting” with Bill Clinton.

However … I also believe if the American people will make sure that Hillary Clinton’s scandals … all of them … are brought to the forefront of the general election … and kept there, and that if we NEVER say … “it’s time to move on” … that we can continue to chip away at the corrupt, soulless, character of this vile, contemptible woman … and Donald Trump can win this election.

Then, and only then, will we have the opportunity to bring back the values that once made this country great.  I sincerely believe that the odds for Trump to beat Hillary Clinton just went up.

So, while many of us are feeling blue and seeing red, because Hillary Clinton won’t be wearing orange … this may actually turn out to be what wins Trump the election in November.

When Does Liberty Stop and Security Begin? In Hindsight, We Knew He Was Bad … But …

While the Orlando shooter did nothing illegal, before this last weekend, when he killed 50 people and wounded 53 more at Gay nightclub, “Pulse” … he had obviously been a loose cannon long before that event.

The stories are emerging about his repugnant behavior in high school, just after 9/11.  He was investigated by the FBI because of reports from his co-workers.  And, when the investigation led to nothing definitive, the investigation was closed.

The thing is that in America … liberty seems to trump (intentional pun) security. What he did was repugnant … but America says he has a right to his opinion and his freedom of expression.

How is his actions IN SCHOOL (not this weekend) … any more repulsive than the actions of Bill Ayers (leader in the Weather Underground, responsible for blowing up buildings and killing several people) or Angela Davis (1970 armed take-over of a Marin County, California, courtroom, in which four persons were killed)?  These two people are not only allowed to walk freely about … they are … or have … taught in universities.

His co-workers were offended and deeply concerned about his verbal threats and radical behavior, but still … it was all verbal.   The F.B.I. had spoken with him, and apparently had him on a watch list for a while … but … it was his words that were concerning.  He had done nothing criminal.

And, with no criminal record … he was free to purchase an AR -15 rifle.

So, at what point do words and forms of “expression” supersede liberty for security?

At what point should we put someone on a watch list and when should that person be taken off?

And, when someone what is put on a watch list … how much latitude should the F.B.I. and other law enforcement agencies be given?

And, in the case of the Orlando shooter … when should he have been … legally… taken off the streets, before the shooting … and for what … other than his repugnant and repulsive words, disrespect for the victims of 9/11, and the threats to his co-workers?

My question really is … we know now … that the Orlando shooter hated LGBT …was repugnant in school, disrespectful of 9/11, and leaned toward radical Islam … but when … seriously when … does security supersede liberty?

Instead of all the talk about gun control … perhaps the question of liberty vs security is the bigger issue.

THE ORLANDO SHOOTING: TIME TO REPLACE “PC” WITH “CS”

I was saddened to wake up to the tragedy of the mass shooting, overnight, at Orlando Gay nightclub, Pulse, this morning.

Omar Mateen, born in the U.S. (parents from Afghanistan), walked into the nightclub and killed 50 people (there will probably be more fatalities) and seriously injured 53 other people.

It didn’t take long at all for a woman Florida State Senator (I refuse to give her name) to use this terrorist attack to further her, Obama’s, and Clinton’s anti-gun agenda.

President Obama has an upcoming press conference.  I am sure that once again … he will ask us to be nice to our Muslim friends and that this attack can be … solely … blamed on guns.

Not this time Obama … never again … should we allow this false rhetoric to distract Americans from the real problem.

That problem is Islamic Terrorists, those in groups and the lone wolf, who have infiltrated into America and whose agenda is to kill Americans and groups of which … associate hate for them.

The terrorist can and will get guns with or without any new gun control or mass take-over of guns from American citizens with the right to bear arms.

The problem is NOT the guns!  The problem is a President who has used his term in office to destroy America and American values, with political correctness, an easy path with which Islamic terrorist are free to enter this country … and a FORCED acceptance of the American people to accept anyone and everyone (even our enemies) into this country … their values, and … their cultures.

The attack that happened over night in Orlando, Florida is not because of guns.  The blame is placed squarely on the political correctness which started out looking like a small rash and has developed and metastasized into a deadly cancer.

America, it is time that we replace the “Political Correctness” … with “Common Sense.”  It is time to get out all leadership that wallows in “PC” and elect the only one representing good old fashion … “CS”.

It is time to elect Donald J Trump.

Judge Curiel and The Case For Trump

This is a lawsuit between Trump and plaintiffs against Trump University. It is NOT, for crying out loud … a NATIONAL suit, nor is it a matter of national security. The faked outrage is ludicrous!

I would ask the people trying to make this an issue … if your son or daughter was being sued by the parents of a young girl who died in a car accident while riding in the car of this young man or woman … suspected of texting before the accident … and the Presiding Judge … had … just lost his daughter in a similar accident … don’t you believe the lawyers for the defendant would be screaming for the Judge to recuse himself?!

It is the Defendants duty to his/her client(s) to scrutinize the Presiding Judge in every way possible, securing a FAIR judgement.

Judge Curiel may be born in Indiana … but he is of Mexican Heritage who was a member of the LaRaza Bar Association of Lawyers. He is no longer a member … NOT because he felt he needed to in order to at least appear to be unbiased … But … only … because in order to accept his appointment as a District Judge … he was required to give up membership. The plaintiff’s lawyers are devout supporters of the Democratic Party and have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to H. Clinton for speeches.

Judge Curiel has friendly ties with the head of Univision (which Trump sued).

The main plaintiff, a woman … was ordered to step out of the suit because … there were several previous glowing endorsements of Trump University made by her.

There are thousands of letters and endorsements submitted by satisfied students of Trump University.

In lieu of this woman having to step out of this suit and the amount of endorsements that have come to light … this Judge … SHOULD have thrown this case out, but did not.

Donald J. Trump has every right to want this Judge to recuse himself, and his reasons are valid.

Anyone saying otherwise simply has an agenda to take Trump down by any means, valid or not … or … they are being hypocritical if they are saying that they would not scrutinize the Judge presiding their case. And, the defendant’s lawyers would be remiss.

Bottom line … this is nothing more that BS. And, since when is it RACIST to call a Mexican … Mexican??

Anybody falling for this crap should be ashamed of themselves this is ridiculous. Everybody … back to your safe-spaces!
