Let me take you back to the late 1970s. Jimmy Carter is POTUS. I know this is hard to imagine, but bear with me. Iran is a modern forward looking country. It is run by the Shah. Overall the Shah is popular, but there is a small militant segment of the population who hate the Shah because he has embraced Western influences and they want an Islamic run theocracy. Remember, they are a tiny minority. But as so often happens the western media has inflated their importance no end. You know, the way in the early 60’s they made Castro seem to be a democratic and heroic figure. Anyway, the Shah has a “SECRET POLICE” bent on shutting down this tiny militant group.
So, Jimmy becomes President. And Jimmy “feels the pain” of that minority in Iran. So he changes the policy of the US of A to encourage the Islamic minority in Iran who, with the help of the lamestream media, manage to overthrow the Shah and usher in the much loved Islamic Republic. Now, ask yourself this, do you think the people of Iran are happier now than they were under the Shah? Do you think the people of the Middle East are happier now with the terrorism stirred up by the Iranian regime for 45+ years? Do you think the million plus Muslims who died in the Iran – Iraq War are in a better place? Do you think the “SECRET POLICE” now at work in Iran shooting demonstrators today (and since the Shah departed) are more beloved by the people than the SAVAK under the Shah?
And now you know why it took such a heroic effort by Obama to unseat Jimmy as worst President ever. Although Jimmy made it even tougher when OPEC turned off the oil valve and Jimmy assumed it meant the world was running out of oil. But Obo did it!
Last week I posted a quote from Ida B. Wells – “Eternal vigilance: the price of liberty.” Was your first thought, “Who in the world is Ida B. Wells?” Who indeed?
Ida Bell Wells was an African-American investigative journalist, educator, and an early leader in the civil rights movement. Born into slavery in Mississippi in 1862, Wells was freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. She was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Wells arguably became the most famous black woman in America, during a life that was centered on combating prejudice and violence, who fought for equality for African Americans.
Never heard about Ida in a Black History Month TV feature? You didn’t learn about her in high school or college? That’s impossible. She was a giant of the struggle for Civil Rights for Black Americans. Could it be? Is it conceivable that she could be overlooked? No she’s not overlooked. She’s been and is being buried by the lamestream media and the Demoncratic apparatus. Ida B. Wells was a conservative Republican who spoke “truth to power” as no Demoncrat would recognize it and would flee in horror if they did. Imagine how a Demoncrat would react to this quote from Ida – “A Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give.”
Do yourself a favor and edumacate yourself about Ida. She’s on Wikipedia and numerous other sites.
This evening’s CBS News clearly demonstrated the depths of depravity to which the lamestream media has descended. Host Nora O’Donnell was discussing “Person of the Year” Greta Thunberg and her Twitter tussle with President Trump. The reporterette she was talking to described Trump’s criticism and ended by saying, “this even though the President insists his son Barron should be ‘off limits’ to criticism.”
Well, Ladies, though it appears you are so so stupid that you don’t see the difference, I will spell it out for you. Barron does not go around giving political speeches and criticizing Demoncrats at politically sponsored events and the UN as Ms Thunberg does incessantly. It is beyond me how anybody who can read a script cannot understand that simple concept.
I wonder if Nora has any young kids. Maybe somebody should unleash a campaign against them. What do you think about that, Nora?
After avoiding the wiles of a gold digging “femme fatale,” Elly and Jed discuss the result
Elly May: “Pa, ain’t you gonna marry up with that city woman?”
Jed: “No Elly. Us old foxes is trap-shy, especially when the bait goes to chasin’ us.”
I am sick and tired of all these “smart” devices. I especially don’t want any phone that’s smarter than me. It’s bad enough I already owe the stupid toaster $6.50 for poker.
Beaver at the breakfast table after getting caught the previous day skipping school with his buddy, Larry –
JUNE – “Who was on the phone, Beaver?”
BEAVER – “Larry Mondello, he’s coming to pick me up.”
WARD – “Now, Beaver, there’s not going to be any nonsense on the way to school this morning.”
BEAVER – “Gee, no Dad.”
JUNE – “Beaver, do Larry’s mother and father know what happened on the way to school yesterday?”
BEAVER – “Oh, sure Mom, they know what happened.”
WARD – “I hope he was smart enough to volunteer the information.”
BEAVER – “Yes sir, he volunteered.”
WARD – “As soon as he got home?”
BEAVER – “No sir, after his father started walloping him. Pass the bread, please.”
