Baby or Lamborghini?


A Planned Parenthood doctor was secretly filmed bargaining to sell baby parts. She jokingly said she needed a good price to pay for a Lamborghini sports car. Only the most jaded leftist can side with this heartless doctor.

Planned Parenthood justifies these immoral uses of dead baby parts because they get permission from the aborted child's mom. They claim that the human organs are used for important research.

After World War II the victors recovered detailed records from horrendous Nazi medical experiments on concentration camp victims. The medical community recognized that the research could be used to advance science. However, due to the immoral source of the data, they decided it was not ethical to use it.

Society should recognize that the trafficking of dead baby parts, even for scientific purposes is unacceptable.

Windmills Yes - Hunters No ???


The picture pretty much says it all. Too bad the hunter did not use a windmill to kill the lion -- then it would be okay.

Obama's 7 Worst Foreign Policy Blunders


Is any informed observer of the Obama presidency really surprised that Obama is promoting the worst international agreement in American history with his Iran proposal?

Obama is unfortunately consistent in his foreign relations blunders. The key similarity to all these mistakes is his unfailing focus on the short term instead of the long term. Presidents who were successful with their foreign policy actions like Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, and Reagan where focused on long term results. Evidence shows that Obama is entirely incapable of taking the long view as proven by these disasters:

  1. Bush set up defensive missile plans in Poland and the Czech Republic to protect the West from possible Iranian (and Russian) aggression. Obama unilaterally cancelled the plans. Now with Russia threatening neighbors and Iran on the path to increased offensive missile abilities, the missiles are not there to help.
  2. Obama removed troops from Iraq against the advice of his military advisers. With America out of the way, ISIS was able to fill the void. Obama is the Father of Isis.
  3. Obama helped topple the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. In the process the American ambassador was killed and Libya is now a failed state with terrorist training camps.
  4. Obama's red-line red-faced fiasco in Syria did nothing to degrade an oppressive Syrian government.
  5. Obama decided to renew diplomatic relations with Cuba. For this recognition Cuba gave America -- nothing. Freedom loving Cuban expats are not pleased.
  6. Obama traded 5 known terrorists for army deserter Bowe Bergdahl. How is this a win? Meanwhile innocent American political prisoners in Iran were not freed as part of the Iran nuclear deal.
  7. Pretty much overshadowing all these blunders combined is the pending Iran nuclear deal. The fact that none of our allies in the Middle East are supporting the deal tells all. At best all this deal does is delay when Iran will have the bomb. At worst it restores Iran to a regional power flushed with cash to increase state sponsored terrorism. The people were dancing in the streets in Iran. They know it was a sweetheart deal for Iran.
Iran is the country were chess was invented. Expert chess players do not focus on the next few moves. They are looks at moves far into the game. Iran is playing chess and Obama is out of his league.


If you like your nuclear deal with Iran, you can keep your nuclear deal with Iran.

Fiddlin' - The Trump / Gaston Song


Sorry, Trump fans, but even a superfical examination of Trump's past statements reveals that he is no conservative. He is a fun candidate to read about however. He reminds me of the character Gaston from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

TRUMP

(Sing to the tune of Gaston from Disney's Beauty and the Beast)

Trump:
Those pundits have tangled with the wrong man!

Lackey:
Darn right.

Trump:
No one says "no" to Sir Trump!
Dismissed! Rejected!
Publicly humiliated! Why, it's more than I can bear.

Lackey:
More hair?

Trump:
No . . . bear! Nothing helps. I'm disgraced.

Lackey:
Who, you? Never! Trump sir, you've got to pull yourself together.

Gosh it disturbs me to see you, Sir Trump,
Looking so down in the dumps.
Ev'ry guy here'd love to be you, Sir Trump,
Even when taking your lumps.

There's no man on earth as admired as you,
You're ev'ryone's favorite guy.
Ev'ryone's awed and inspired by you,
And it's not very hard to see why.

No one's slick as Sir Trump.
No one's pricked as Sir Trump.
No one's skull’s as incredibly thick as Sir Trump’s.

For there's no man on earth half as Trumply,
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, Dick or Chumley,
And they'll tell you whose payroll they like to be on!

Lackey and Chorus:
No one's flush like Sir Trump,
Likes to gush like Sir Trump.

Lackey:
No one's got a swell thatch in his hair like Sir Trump!

Trump:
As a candidate, yes, I'm intimidating!

Lackey and Chorus:
My what a guy, our Sir Trump!

Give five "hurrahs!"
Give twelve "hip-hips!"

Lackey:
Sir Trump is the best,
And the rest is all drips.

Chorus:
No one fights like Sir Trump,
Waxes trite like Sir Trump.

Lackey:
In a shouting match nobody bites like Sir Trump!

Bimbettes:
For there's no one as surly and pompous.

Trump:
As you see I've got greatness to spare!

Lackey:
Not a bit of him's modest or quiet.

Trump:
That's right!
With ev'ry last inch of scalp’s covered with hair!

Chorus:
No one hits like Sir Trump,
Throws a fit like Sir Trump.

Lackey:
In a spitting match nobody spits like Sir Trump.

Trump:
I'm especially good at expectorating!
Ptoooie!

Chorus:
Ten points for Sir Trump!

Trump:
When I was a lad I spent four hundred grand,
Ev'ry morning to help me feel large.
And now that I'm grown I spend eight hundred grand,
So my ego’s the size of a barge!

Chorus:
Oh, ahhh, wow!
My what a guy, that Sir Trump,
No one spews like Sir Trump,
Marries beauts like Sir Trump.

Lackey:
Then goes tromping around spending loot like Sir Trump.

Trump:
I use mirrors in all of my decorating!

Chorus:
My what a guy,
Sir Trump!

Here is How Trump is Hillary's Secret Stooge . . .


Why would a regular Democrat contributor with a record of making leftist comments run as a Republican targeting the anti-establishment voters?

That is exactly what Donald Trump has done.

Here is a scenario that could pave the way for Hillary to take the White House.

1. Trump continues to focus on the anti-establishment voters.
2. Trump finishes high in the first few primaries, but as other candidates drop out, their supporters don't turn to Trump who has the highest negatives.
3. Trump sees he can't win the Republican nomination so he drops out.
4. Trump announces that he can't back a Republican party that has ignored his supporters so he decides to run as an independent.
5. In the general election Trump takes away votes that would never have gone to Hillary, but would be needed by Republicans to win the election.
6. Hillary wins.
7. After Hillary is in power, the federal government grants Trump some special consideration that benefits his business.
8. Trump is richer and more famous than ever - his true goal achieved.

Aborted Black Lives Matter


Crazy leftists are filling airtime with the mantra "Black Lives Matter." It seems that they are mainly focused on the lives of young black men with criminal histories. Of course a wrongful death of an innocent person at the hands of police is tragic. But such events are extremely rare.

A black person is 30 times more likely to be killed by another black person than a policeman (which includes justifiable deaths). And when police work becomes more politically correct and less agressive, it is bound to result in more tragic deaths to black people.

Perhaps most tragic of all is the number of black babies killed by abortions, 16 million since 1973, 1,876 a day. That is more people than live in the combined states of Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming, plus Washington, D.C.

The people who back the "Black Lives Matter" movement are usually the same ones who support abortion rights. They have supported the death of far more blacks than the targets they condemn.

As always, the left claims the moral high ground, but in reality live in the gutter.

Time to Overturn 90 Years of Evolutionary Errors


July 21 is the 90th anniversary of the verdict of the Scopes monkey trial. It was referred to at the time as the trial of the century. Although high school teacher John Scopes was found guilty of teaching human evolution, many felt he won in the court of public opinion.

An argument can be made that the Scopes trial is the 'genesis' of the evolutionist control of science as taught in schools. It took until the 1960's for the courts to clear the way for evolution to replace creationism, but in our modern day, evolution is firmly entrenched in American schools and taught as fact instead of theory.

Any scientific challenges that would tear down belief in evolution are blocked with swiftness, often accompanied by venom and spite. In the eyes of those in control of government schools, evolution cannot be questioned or attacked.

The distinguished Chinese scientist J. Y. Chen has made this insightful observation: "In China we can criticize Darwin, but not the government. In America, you can criticize the government, but not Darwin."

Many thinking scientists are unconvinced that random mutation can explain the evolution of life and especially the creation of entirely new species. Yet scientists who question the viability of Darwinian evolution are marginalized and scorned. Intelligent design is wrongly labeled as creationism in sheep's clothing.

The infallible, unquestioned dominance of evolution in our schools is clearly reminiscent of the creationist position a century ago. There is only one true position. No debate allow.

Is there any question that if a teacher were to introduce arguments of intelligent design to his/her students that he or she would get in trouble?

To advance the argument that evolution deserves to be challenged, I wrote the play Inherit the Wind: Overturned by Design.(see link at upper right). This time, instead of basing the over-the-hill politician turned prosecutor on William Jennings Bryant, he looks a lot like Al Gore. Instead of Clarence Darrow, the feisty defense attorney is based on Ann Coulter. It's conservatives debating liberals, intelligent design vs evolution. It shares the message that intelligent design should be taken seriously, and not dismissed without any debate. My goal is to see this play help advance the intelligent design argument.

The play is available for Nook, IBook on ITunes, or Amazon.

Dump Trump For Dissing POWs


Donald Trump made this statement last Saturday regarding Senator John McCain: "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Trump's latest verbal diarrhea is a slap in the face to the thousands of American servicemen who suffered as prisoners of war. First of all they put themselves in harm's way.Then these brave men withstood starvation and torture in captivity. Many died. Does Trump believe these men should have fought to the death in a banzai charge or kamikaze attack instead of being captured so they meet his narrow definition of what a hero is?

Trump is old enough to have served in the Vietnam War. He never volunteered and took steps to avoid the draft. He is the last person to criticize the war record of those who did serve.

On a nearly daily basis Trump displays that he does not have the judgment to be president. Speaking plainly is one thing, speaking plain stupid is something else.

Time to dump Trump.

How Donald Trump Lost $11 Billion


Trump's great wealth is more due to the wealth he started out with than to his own business acumen.

Forbes estimates that Trump is worth $4 billion. Trump says he is worth closer to $9 billion.

But what would have happened if he took his inheritance and just invested it in the stock market from 1974 when he took over his Dad's business and now?

Trump started out with between $40 and $200 million. If we take the midpoint of this of $120 million and calculate what would have happened at the historic 12.65% average annual return (rate comes from http://www.moneychimp.com/features/market_cagr.htm) for 1974 to 2014, it would have reached $15.8 billion.

So instead of nearly $16 billion, Trump is worth only $4 billion? Looks like he's made a bunch of dumb money decisions.

In other words, Trump has done far worse than if he just would have invested his Dad's money in the stock market.

What's Your All Star Conservative Baseball Team?



It's time for the MLB All Star Game. What if we could build a baseball team using conservative media figures? What would an all star team look like?

Here is my batting order selection using conservative radio talk show hosts for the fielders and conservative writers for the pitching staff.

1. RF - Michael Savage



(useful stats: 20th year, 5 million weekly listeners) Savage is a dangerous lead off batter who is not afraid to take some wild swings. He pretty much owns right field; you won't find him wandering into the center and definitely never into the left. Some say his game is not what it once was, but you don't want to make him angry and leave him in a pitch count where he can swing for the bleachers.

2. 3B - Glenn ¨The Blaze" Beck



(useful stats: 13th year, 7.5 million weekly listeners, 1 Marconi Award) Beck plays with a lot of emotion and energy. He is Lou Gehrig to Limbaugh's Babe Ruth. He attracts big crowds wherever he plays. He has a lot of reverence for the game and likes to talk about the old timers like Washington and Adams. Likes to wear number 912.

3. 2B - Sean Hannity



(useful stats: 13th year, 13.25 million weekly listeners, 2 Marconi Awards) Hannity benefits from having Limbaugh's popular show just before his, but he is no lightweight. Like a Bo Jackson or a Deon Sanders, he is one of the few successful two sport players with a TV show to compliment his radio show. With him on second base and Limbaugh on first base, there are a lot of innings were the libs find them down two outs on one deft double play.

4. 1B - Rush ¨El Rushbo¨ Limbaugh



(useful stats: 26th year, 14 million weekly listeners, 4 Marconi Awards) The Babe Ruth of talk radio. Larger than life, his bat puts the fear in liberal pitchers. They have tried, with little effect, to damage his game by going after his sponsors, but he still remains at the top of his game.

5. C - Mark ¨The Great One¨ Levin



(useful stats: 9th year, 7.5 million weekly listeners) With legal training, a quick mind, and a fast tongue, Levin is tough opponent for any liberal pitcher. Any pitcher able to withstand the lineup preceding Levin will still have to throw heat to keep Levin from getting a hit. As a catcher, Levin known for his chattering with the opposing batters. He gives nicknames to liberals such as Al Not-So Sharpton, The Spiteful Troll (Al Franken), Rachel Mad-Cow, and Barack Milhouse Obama.

6. SS - Laura Ingraham



(useful stats: 13th year, 3.25 million weekly listeners) At the shortstop position and playing her show at the same time as Beck's, Ingraham may not catch as many line drives, but she is a great fielder and there are few better when matching one on one wits with a liberal opponent. Has been known to razzle the other team in Russian or Spanish.

7. CF - Michael ¨Laser Beam¨ Medved



(useful stats: 18th year, 3.5 million weekly listeners) Medved is a great center fielder, not afraid to engage from the left or the right. One of the smartest players there is, with an phenomenal memory for history, there is not much that Medved can't field and he has a great arm to throw liberals out. He likes challenging the liberal team's best pitchers and gets on base more times than not. He also is a threat to steal due to his knowledge of knowing what liberals will do ahead of time.

8. LF - Dennis Miller



(useful stats: 8th year, 2.5 million weekly listeners) It's hard to find a conservative willing to play left field, but Miller is a good choice. He has some socially liberal views, but he is respectful of social conservatives and plays conservative with the rest of his game. He'll take pitches some conservatives won't hit and any liberal thinking they can hit to him and get on base will quickly learn otherwise.

9. DH - Mark Steyn



(useful stats: 4 best sellers) Limbaugh's go-to-fill-in when he can't play first base, Mark Steyn is from Canada, so baseball isn't his natural sport. However, his wit and intellect is beautifully displayed in both radio and print. If you haven't read his America Alone, you have missed one of the most important books of the last decade. Also, he's not a bad big band style singer.


Pitching Staff:

Ann ¨Firebrand¨ Coulter



(useful stats: 11 best sellers) Liberal batters are advised not to stand too close to the plate. Coulter would just as soon aim for the head than throw a strikeout. Perhaps no pitcher can cause a Liberal to fall off his game like Coulter. She mainly throws fast and hard. She's not afraid to play Ty Cobb style and sometimes even some conservatives say she play too mean. On a side note, Coulter is inspiration for Nicole Duran, the main character in my play Inherit the Wind: Overturned by Design.

Charles ¨The Doctor¨ Krauthammer



(useful stats: 30 years with The Washington Post, 1 Pulitzer Prize, 1 best seller) The Doctor has been called the most influential pitcher in America. Few pitchers can throw the types of pitchers that leave liberals confused and frustrated. Changeups, sliders, curveballs, screwballs, no matter what he throws its bound to leave his liberal opponents dazed and confused.

George Will



(useful stats: 14 best sellers, 1 Pulitzer Prize) Although a veteran pitcher with more good games behind him than before him, Will has been called the most powerful pitcher in America. Many younger pitchers learned their craft by watching this master perform. The dean of conservative pitchers, you would definitely want to put him on the mound during a World Series.

Thomas ¨The Professor¨ Sowell



(useful stats: 13 best sellers, 1 National Humanities Medal) Perhaps no pitcher in the game knows the mechanics better than The Professor. He can read any liberal batter's rotten batting stance and fan him out with economy. He can judge as good as anyone how poorly liberals understand the rules of baseball and why they have to cheat to succeed.


What does your fantasy all star conservative baseball team look like? Any other fielders you would put on your card? What about pitchers? Which aces would you included on the pitching staff?

The Question Atheists Hate to Answer


On yesterday's Dennis Prager radio show, he pontificated that atheists are loathe to answer the question regarding their belief about the non-existence of God, "Do you HOPE your are right, or do you HOPE you are wrong?"

Prager is more sympathetic with agnostics who take a position that they are unsure of the existence of God. He is less accommodating to atheists who somehow KNOW there is no God. He stated that atheists have a hard time with the "Do you HOPE you are right/wrong" question because it makes them take ownership of their beliefs. You can KNOW something and not own it, since the knowledge comes from elsewhere.

But HOPE is personal.

Prager gave the example of a child who dies in infancy, perhaps killed by a terrorist's bomb. Most mothers would have the HOPE that they would be reunited with their child in the next life. If an atheist HOPES he/she is wrong, that is supportive of the mother's grief. Prager points out that he thinks these atheists are in the minority. He thinks most atheists want to be right. However, when asked do they HOPE they are right, most will not want to answer the question. They will say it is irrelevant. They will dodge this simple up/down question.

Admitting that you HOPE you are right about the non-existence of God, that you HOPE there is no continuation of life after death, and that family relations cease with your last breath of life is not a comfortable position to champion.

The distinguished and much published mathematician Amir Aczel is not a fan of New Atheists like Richard Dawkins (who recently advocated killing mentally handicapped children) and Lawrence Krauss. They are big detractors of intelligent design and Aczel finds their science sloppy. ID bashing seems to be a hobby of many atheists who regularly dismiss it entirely instead of wanting to debate.

All critics of ID are not militant atheists, but militant atheists do strongly oppose ID because they don't want a discussion that will turn to who the Designer may be.

I posed Prager's question on a few ID Facebook groups. For the most part Prager's predictions panned out. The HOPE question is hard for many atheists to answer.



RELATED:

This month is the 90th anniversary of the Scopes Monkey Trial. Biology teacher John Scopes was arrested for teaching Darwin's theory of evolution in violation of Tennessee state law. Scopes is one of the patron saints of atheists and secular humanists who believe faithfully in evolution. In ninety years evolution has become the accepted science taught in schools. If a teacher were to teach intelligent design today no doubt he or she would be fired or arrested. Challenging evolution is blasphemy.

Back in 2006 a legislator here in conservative Utah proposed a bill that would let schools teach intelligent design. The state school board reaction was to derail this bill at all costs. The bill never was passed, and it opened my eyes to the firm control secular humanists have over the school system in the United States.

Not long after this happened, I happened to watch the classic Spencer Tracy movie, "Inherit the Wind," the courtroom drama based on the Scopes Monkey Trial. I thought, the world has turned 180 degrees. In the 21st century a teacher could get in trouble for teaching intelligent design. I realized you could redo the original play section by section with basically the same characters and tell a challenging and compelling story of intelligent design on trial.

It sounded like a fun project, so that is what I did. I wrote a new play called "Inherit the Wind: Overturned by Design" (see link at upper right). This time, instead of basing the over-the-hill politician turned prosecutor on William Jennings Bryant, he looks a lot like Al Gore. Instead of Clarence Darrow, the feisty defense attorney is based on Ann Coulter. It's conservatives debating liberals, atheists vs. believers, intelligent design vs. evolution. It shares the message that intelligent design should be taken seriously, and not dismissed without any debate. My goal is to see this play help advance the intelligent design argument.

In the years since I published this play, the reaction has been, as expected, highly favorable, or disparaging. Conservatives open-mindedly appreciate a scientific based argument for a designer of the universe. Evolutionists want to dismiss intelligent design and ignore the evidence.

The play is available for Nook, IBook on ITunes, or Amazon.

Contact me if you are interested in performing the play. It is much more topical for the 21st century than the original play which is still regularly produced.

Where the Bible Predicted Same Sex Marriage



In Matthew 24 Jesus is speaking to his disciples about the last days preceding his Second Coming. In verse 37 to 39 he says:
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Eating and drinking in Bible speak refers to wild drunken behavior. I can understand why Jesus would condemn this. However, in the past I was confused why "marrying and giving in marriage" is lumped in with the wild party lifestyle -- after all, Christians are encouraged to marry and marriage is ordained of God.

Now that the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that same sex marriage is the law of the land, the meaning of this scripture is much clearer. Marriage is not the problem. The key word is "They." Who is the "They" that are "marrying and giving in marriage?" It is the people who reject God. The party hardy crowd both in the time of Noah and in the present took it upon themselves to reject traditional marriage and champion same sex marriage.

Christians can read this scripture as the fulfillment of a prophesy. Is America in line for God to come down with a "Cecil B. DeMille style" whopping?

We shall see.
