Today the NBA, pressured by the LBGT community and liberal elites in corporate America, pulled their All Star Game out of Charlotte, N.C. because North Carolina does not embrace a radical policy that would allow grown men into the bathrooms and locker rooms where girls can be seen dressing.
Last night I saw and amazing commercial.
A man who has always known he was a female, trapped in a male body, fully transitioned to a woman. He was in a café with his friends—male and female. And the hard-faced, bigoted evil shop owner runs her down as she seeks to enter the women’s bathroom making it clear that he belongs with the boys. He (meaning the man dressed as a woman) was horrified and embarrassed. Then an African American woman came to her defense as a white woman exited the bathroom. Oh—but first we get to see the inside of the men’s bathroom. The storeowner opens the door for her to go in and there is a group of young men, who look at the transgender like he is a freak.
As a man, with lots of experience in the men’s bathrooms, groups of men don’t hang out, chatting it up. We take care of business and get out.
Any way… the white woman takes her into the women’s bathroom, shaming the mean storeowner.
This commercial is excellent in presenting a ridiculous scenario that rarely takes place—if ever.
I would like to make another commercial based on a real story. Sean Patrick Smith who goes by Shauna Patricia Smith entered into a target dressing room as a woman. He then videoed or photographed a woman by reaching over the wall with his phone. While we were assured that these things would never happen as a result of allowing transgenders in the dressing rooms, locker rooms and bathrooms, it has… and how many more times where the perp was not caught. What if it was not a grown woman that he photographed, but your young daughter?
If you are uncomfortable with this, then the NBA’s got news for you: You are a mean-spirited, Homophobe! A CBS/NYT poll found that 48% to 41% of Americans think that people should use the bathroom that connects with their biology (meaning if you were born and man, you should go to the men’s bathroom). But the NBA is not about lining up with American values, but changing them. And now, in order to do that, they will have to change cities.
Here is a great alternative. The NBA does more business in China than probably any other nation, save the United States. Why not move the game there? Oh…that’s rights…
And here lies the hypocrisy of the NBA. They are willing to take a bold stand in Charlotte that will cost them nothing. But Adam Silver and the NBA have nothing to say about the evil abuses that take place in China, there partner in business. I wouldn’t have such a problem with their North Carolina issue, if they had the economic guts to take on China—but they don’t. We call that hypocrisy.
Though I have a tiny small voice, and I can’t even imagine that any NBA player will read this, I still will issue a challenge to any NBA player who loves children and wants to protect them, to boycott the All-Star game if it is not played in Charlotte. Steph Curry, are you listening?
Trump clearly won the PR war against Ted Cruz. But he reveals AGAIN that he lacks self control when it comes to his mouth. Why in the world would you go after Ted again this morning when it was all but forgotten. Argh!!!
Dude, you won… go run for president and stop defending your worst moments. I just feel for Mike Pence who had to endure his first moments of Trump Unplugged. While I plan to vote for him (because I can’t imagine Hillary as President), I just wish he could get beyond himself. You never know who is going to show up, Dr. Jekyll, the loving father, mentor, employer of women and minorities, or the evil Mr. Hyde, who attacks (real or perceived) enemies with ruthlessness and doesn’t pay his contractors.
Like many of you, I was extremely impressed by Mr. Trump’s children. Though they were born with a silver spoon in their mouths, it was quickly replaced with work gloves and a calculator. The descriptions of him mentoring his children, encouraging them and the leaving them notes were endearing. I especially was moved by Ivanka’s words last night, that he once wrote her a note on the draft of a building that he could not wait until she grew up and they could build together.
I heard stories about him hearing about people down on their luck, then tracking them down, inviting them to Trump Tower to spend time with him and then he would find them a job within the company. I saw an African American female executive rave about him as a loyal boss. Even the person who botched Melania’s speech was forgiven—though she tried to resign. Trump told her (if we believe the story) that everyone makes mistakes.
And then… there is the other Trump. Mr. Hyde. Filterless, lacking self control, vindictive.
The last thing in the world he needed to do this morning was to even bring up the words “Ted Cruz.” But who am I to tell DT what will work and what won’t. Like everyone else, I have been wrong for a year about Trump’s strategy.
Yet they did and he won.
Now the question is, can he be the Trump his kids and employees raved about over the next three months and three weeks or will he be the free-talking, late night tweeting, cringeworthy narcissistic that we have seen for the past year?
Mr. Hyde got him here, so maybe he will shock us all and win the election. personally I prefer the Dr. Jekyll version of Mr. Trump.

Today their protest marches against police taking place all over the country. Traveling the U.S. I have had a lot of time this month to listen to the news while driving. The past few days I have heard more than a few on the left say, “The Dallas police killer does not represent Black Lives Matters or the peaceful protesters.” Ok, I agree. Most protesters, even the ones calling for violence against the police, are not actually going to hurt police.
Yet, the left and BLM act as if racism is systemic in Police Departments across the USA—to the point that officers actively seek to kill black people. When a mentally deranged madman kills 5 police officers, it is the needle in the haystack. When police kill a black man, it is institutionalized racism.
And as peaceful as BLM claims to be, Twitter is full of praise for the Dallas shooter, “Shout out to them Dallas shooters. Rapping pigs in a blanket” or see below:
And in most cases, not all, lady justice, after reviewing all the evidence, has vindicated the police officers. Even the Eric Holder justice department, who was overtly hostile against police forces around the country, could not find enough reasonable cause to charge the police officer in the Michael Brown case.
All the evidence pointed to the fact that officer Darren Wilson acted in self-defense. But that didn’t stop Black Lives Matter from being created from that false narrative. Everyone has forgotten that Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson lied to police and the world when he claimed that Brown said, “Don’t shoot,” with his hands up. That lie didn’t stop the mantra, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”—from spreading the falsehood that police shoot unarmed suspects, even as they surrender.
It doesn’t matter that in all of the shootings, cops are convicted in the press, before the investigation even begins and long before an actual trial. So far, there have been no convictions in the Freddie Gray case, yet the mayor of Baltimore allowed her city to riot with impunity as a form of protest (yes, she really did say, “We also gave those who wish to destroy space to do that as well”—and the District’s Attorney was openly hostile towards the police she charged them. President Obama said, long before there was a trial that Trayvon Martin would look like his son if he had one. And of course, he connected the Cambridge police, who were proved to be in the right, to past racism.
“I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that.”
He should have stopped there.
“But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home, and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”
Obama and Eric Holder have stoked the fires of reverse racism for nearly eight years. And now, someone snapped and five cops are dead. Without a doubt, in both cases this week, the one in Minnesota and the one in Louisiana, after the emotions subside, the facts will come out. If it is like the past, we will see a different story. But if not—if the shootings are proved to be illegal and unjustified—then the officer(s) should be charged. If we had waited for all the evidence to come in before reacting emotionally, five men would be going home to their families tonight.
Amazingly Rush Limbaugh revealed this week in his interview with Heather MacDonald that there is no proof of white against black systemic violence from the police.
The Justice Department under Obama came out with a report in March of 2015, a little over a year ago, that found that black and Hispanic officers were actually far more likely to shoot unarmed black suspects under what’s known as threat misperception.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that many, if not most, African Americans do believe that cops are out to get them. And many young whites believe the same—that cops are targeting blacks. It is not dissimilar to those Muslims overseas who believe America is out to destroy Islam. They don’t know any Americans—just what they are told in their mosques. In the U.S., all one needs to do is go to Facebook, watch certain media or listen to Al Sharpton, to be convinced that the police are racist.
And now, many police feel unsupported by the public. They’re scared. After Dallas, they will be even more concerned. Since BLM began to protest, crime is up in the nation’s cities by 17%. If cops feel their lives are at risk or that doing their job could turn them into a nationwide pariah, it will have an effect.
If we want to heal this wound, we need communication. Police stations throughout the nation need to go on an outreach offensive. Leaders in the black community, specifically clergy, need to bring the police and young urban blacks together. Yes, selfies can save. We must bring the police and young urban African Americans together to meet each other face to face. To have fun, eat a hotdog and converse. Unless these people meet police and build trust and relationships, they will believe lies regarding police.
I just heard a black news anchor, Arthel Neville interview Judge Alex. He was sharp. He made good points in defense of police. She became emotional and challenged him, “When will the healing began?” She was near tears as she seemed to say, “Enough of the finger pointing, we need healing.”
I agree with her to a point. I don’t think that the President should be given a pass when he has incited much of this violence by jumping to conclusions always against the police. But we need healing and that is only going to come when people who feel victimized by police began to actually get to know the police officers.
Ironically, the silver lining of this horrible tragedy is that the police put their lives on the line in order to protect those who were protesting them. When the shooting started, not one said, “I am not going to risk my life for those who hate me.” Instead they ran to the shooting. That act alone should shut done these absurd protests…but it hasn’t.
The most recent Presbyterian Church USA meeting acknowledged a new member of sorts—the ‘Prophet’ Muhammad. Wajidi Said was invited to pray to the Muslim God.
“Allah bless us and bless our families and bless our Lord. Lead us on the straight path—the path of all prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.”
“In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful, let us praise the Lord… Peace be upon them and peace be upon Allah,” Said continued his prayer at the Presbyterian assembly. He was generous to also lift up the “bigots” and “Islamaphobes.”
He conveniently left out praying for “radical Islamic terrorists” because in our self-denying culture two lies are embraced:
Did the Presbyterians know about the man who was being compared to Jesus? Here are some facts about the ‘prophet’ Muhammad:
I could go on. The fact is that ISIS and other radical Islamist groups resemble true Islam far more than moderate Islam does. But here we have a supposed evangelical group allowing the false prophet and rapist to be praised next to the names of Moses and Abraham, and lowering Jesus, the Son of God, to the ranks of a notorious murderer. Remember, Peter was rebuked from heaven for comparing Jesus to Moses and Elijah on the mount of transfiguration…imagine God’s response when a mainline denomination puts Him in the same class as a pedophile?
While the leader of the meeting apologized “if anyone was offended,” he stated that the Presbyterians would continue the fight against “the rise in Islamaphobia.” … a fictitious disease that even Microsoft Word says is not a real word. If he really wants to conquer Islamaphophia, then conquer radical Islam, because that is the source.
And it should be noted that during the same gathering, the same folks who embraced a terrorist religion, pressured Remax to ceases doing business in Judea and Samaria (The West Bank) with Jewish landowners.
