How’s Your Dash

 

There are times I worry about MY DASH and have to go back and watch this AWESOME video again. My DASH is very important to me and I have to clean it up a bit from time to time. How’s yours?……….”Papa Mike

Watch the movie that over 65 MILLION people have watched. It has life-changing & healing potential! It’s not the date you were born, or the date you died, that really matters. It’s “the dash” between those years and what you do with it that does. When Linda Ellis wrote her poem, The Dash, in one afternoon in 1996, it would change her life forever. In 239 words, she captured the “Simple Truths” of why we were put on this earth. Since then, The Dash has been published hundreds of times in books, newspapers, magazines and company newsletters. It has also been read countless times at company meetings, graduations and funerals.

Raleigh Police Outraged After Restaurant Employees Sing “F**k The Police” At Them

 

The locusts have arrived.

Via Helena IR:

As images of dead Syrian children flashed across his television this month in Montana, David LeBleu prayed it would finally change minds.

“Could this be our chance?” he wondered.

LeBleu, 73, had been campaigning for a year to bring refugees to his tiny mountainside town of Whitefish. But in conservative Flathead County, he was making little headway.

Donald Trump had won the county with 65 percent of the vote in the presidential election and found widespread support there for his “America first” message and pledge to halt refugee resettlement nationwide. In that sense, the region wasn’t much different from a broad swath of the nation.

If the deaths of “beautiful babies” — as Trump had put it — in what the U.S. said was a poison gas attack couldn’t sway people, LeBleu figured nothing could.

“They don’t like newcomers here,” he said. “They want to just keep things the way they are, in the past.”

LeBleu himself is a newcomer, part of a wave of liberal-minded transplants drawn to Whitefish, population 6,357, for its natural beauty and slower pace of life. He moved from Long Island, N.Y., three years ago, following his daughter after retiring from teaching high school social studies and losing his wife to multiple sclerosis and cancer.

He was delighted that people would “talk to you on the street and ask how you were doing.” As a lifelong Christian, he was pleased to see churches everywhere.

But the faith that dominated northwest Montana was far more conservative than LeBleu had ever experienced.

To him, being a Presbyterian meant a life of public service and openness to other cultures. Back in Long Island, he sat on a refugee council at his church and once housed a Vietnamese refugee and her two sons. He joined churchgoers for a trip to refugee camps in the Middle East, and his church hosted a Coptic Christian priest from Egypt and a pastor from Syria.

But in Whitefish, the Presbyterian churches he visited were more interested in the Bible than the wider world and didn’t share his passion for women’s or gay rights.

LeBleu finally found a spiritual home alongside other liberal transplants at the Whitefish United Methodist Church. It was already working internationally to pay the salaries of Christian pastors in Angolan villages.[…]

By the time Trump took office, LeBleu was on the verge of giving up.

His church committee stopped meeting and he started spending more time with his fiancee, a Montana native and a liberal like him. He saw more of his daughter, who runs the kitchen for a mountain guide company, and her two children.

Texas Abortion Activist Wendy Davis: “Notion That Human Life Begins At Conception Is Absurd”!!!

 

And every year, Planned Parenthood aborts more than 300,000 of these unborn babies’ lives, while receiving hundreds of millions of our tax dollars.

Wanting to protect human lives from the moment they begin is not absurd. It is based on scientific fact and a values system that views every human life as valuable…….

Texas abortion activist Wendy Davis was back on the road this week advocating for abortion and the nation’s largest provider of it, Planned Parenthood.

Davis stopped in Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday to speak at a fundraiser/celebration for the abortion chain’s 100th anniversary, the Post and Courier reports.

Davis is a former Texas state Senator who rose to the national spotlight several years ago when she filibustered a Texas pro-life law that banned late-term abortions and required abortion facilities to meet basic health and safety standards. After a failed attempt to run for Texas governor, Davis has been active in the pro-abortion movement.

On Thursday in Charleston, Davis blasted a new bill in the state that would recognize unborn babies as human beings from the moment of conception.

Here’s more from the report:

Most recently, an anti-abortion measure advanced in the South Carolina legislature Wednesday that defines life as beginning at the moment of conception. Davis characterized such legislation as “absurd” and attributed the bill to “politicians who believe that thumping their chest … is something that they’re rewarded for when they run for re-election.”
She also criticized President Donald Trump’s administration for its pro-life policies and urged people to do everything they can to support Planned Parenthood.

“It’s the storming of capitols all over the country, it’s the phone calls, it’s the marches, the protests, the speaking up, the standing up, the fighting back,” Davis said. “All of that is necessary to the continued vibrancy of the work that Planned Parenthood does.”

What Planned Parenthood does is destroy unique, individual human lives while they are in their mother’s wombs.

Numerous scientific textbooks, experts and researchers point to the moment of conception as the beginning of a new human being’s life, complete with his or her own DNA.

For example, the textbook “The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology” states, “Human life begins at fertilization, the process during which a male gamete or sperm (spermatozoo developmentn) unites with a female gamete or oocyte (ovum) to form a single cell called a zygote.”

Who Doesn’t Want To See The First GOP Millennial Female Latina Beat The Pants Off Of de Blasio For NYC Mayor?

 

Historic and unprecedented.

Via BPR:

The latest entry into the New York City mayoral race should finally put to rest that old saw that the GOP is a party comprised of old white men.

New York Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, a Latina, threw her hat into the ring Tuesday, determined not only to be the Big Apple’s first millennial mayor, but to also break the stranglehold the Democratic Party has on big cities in the U.S.[…]

She’s the only woman running in the 2017 election for the post to date and is also believed to be the first female Republican to run for mayor.

So far, Malliotakis, 36, is the fourth Republican candidate to announce an intention to square off against current Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio.

But she shouldn’t be dismissed just because she’s young and Republican. She overtook an incumbent lawmaker by double digits to wrest his state Assembly seat from him in 2010, in a swing district that includes Staten Island.

Four years later she turned her district from purple to deep, deep red by holding on to her seat with 73 percent of the vote. Two years later, Democrats knew better to challenge her and she ran unopposed.

Tucker Grills NYC Dem on the One Immigration Question No Liberal Will Answer

 

VIDEO HERE

Tucker Carlson debated a New York City Democrat on what can be done to heal the deep and worsening political divide in America.

And he also tried to zero in on what he calls the one question on immigration that liberals will never answer.

He talked to Mark Green, former NYC public advocate, who recently formed a group of 17 policy experts called the “Shadow Cabinet” to oppose and debunk “Trump’s lies.”

Carlson argued that the issue of illegal immigration and “sanctuary” policies shows the disconnect.

He pointed out that leaders of so-called “sanctuary cities” are going a step further by defying federal law, essentially saying “we’re our own country, we’re not subject to the laws passed in Washington.”

“That is something without recent precedent,” said Carlson.

Green accused Carlson of exaggerating for “effect” on the issue, calling President Trump a “demagogue” who was elected thanks to FBI Director James Comey’s actions and Russian interference.

“Come on, you’re smarter than that. That’s insane,” Carlson answered.

He argued that Green was putting the problems of divisiveness “on display” by refusing to actually answer his questions.

Carlson then pressed Green for an answer on what can be done to address immigrants failing to “assimilate” into the country, thus deepening the divide.

“Newcomers to America should be taught what, in order to make them American? The language, the history, the culture? What are the core beliefs we need to inculcate in immigrants to keep this country united rather than divided?” he asked, later referring to it as “the one question on immigration that no liberal will answer.”

Green countered by accusing Carlson of suggesting that the U.S. is being “overrun” by immigrants, arguing that refugees commit crimes at a lesser rate than Americans.

EXPOSED: Youtube Star Hunter Avallone Exposes Hood College’s Censorship of Conservatives (VIDEO)

 

Conservative firebrand and popular YouTube star Hunter Avallone exposed Hood College’s attempts to censor campus Republicans and conservatives alike.

Both in his most recent video and in a conversation today, Avallone broke down the ways college administrators, special snowflake SJWs, and liberals alike, attempt to silence conservative thought and speech on campus.

An excerpt from Avallone’s video that summarizes the situation has been transcribed:

“On Tuesday, April 18th, the college Republicans put up a board, which was approved by the college, sharing conservative quotes, values, and culture, this board featured a spectrum of ideas ranging from traditional conservative ideas to beliefs on the farther right. The idea behind the board was to foster conversation across campus about issues that are rarely talked about.”

The campus reacted in kind, leftists began bashing the Republicans/conservatives writing things like this: “This is disgusting and shameful. Hate will not make us great. The Hood College Republicans are nothing more than a racist, transphobic, xenophobic hate group.”

The quote that sent people over the edge and led to the vandalism of the board by the left is by conservative pundit Ben Shapiro and reads:

“Transgender people are unfortunately suffering from a significant mental illness that is deeply harmful, and it’s not a solution to pretend that transgender people are the sex that they think they are in their head. Biology is biology; men can’t magically become women, and women can’t magically become men.”

Three Strikes And Your OUT Speaker Ryan!

 

Paul Ryan’s leadership as House Speaker is dismal. His chief duty is to manage the House’s legislative agenda, not to enrich his Twitter feed.

Given that he has now failed not once, but twice in corralling Republican Members of Congress to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, President Trump should ask him to step aside. The necessity of Ryan being replaced becomes even more clear because, apparently, we are looking at a third attempt to pass the American Health Care Act.

House Republican leaders delayed a vote on their Obamacare repeal bill until next week at the earliest, denying President Donald Trump a major legislative victory during his first 100 days in office.

Speaker Paul Ryan and his top lieutenants decided during a late-night huddle in the Capitol that they still do not have the votes to pass the stalled health-care legislation. At least 15 House Republicans remain solidly opposed to the bill, with another 20 leaning no or still undecided, according to GOP lawmakers and aides.

White House officials, after striking a deal with conservatives, had publicly raised expectations that the vote would occur this week. And they privately pushed Ryan (R-Wis.) to hand Trump something he could tout as a major legislative victory before Saturday, his 100th day in office.

But GOP leaders are still struggling to secure the votes.

Hey, Mr. Speaker, what does “progress” mean to you if you can’t get a bill passed? Maybe you should take your bat and go home.

Report: Obama White House Intentionally Hid Names Of 14 Iranians Whose Charges Were Dropped As Part His Nuke Deal With Iran…

 

If anyone happens to see the Main Stream Media, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN or MSNBC, or any Major News Papers, Good Morning America, The Today Show ( Im sure you know who I’m talking about ) PLEASE leave me a “Comment”!!!……Papa Mike

Shocker.

Via Politico:

When President Barack Obama announced the “one-time gesture” of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who “were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses” last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans.

“Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to these seven individuals, six of whom are Iranian-Americans.”

But Obama, the senior official and other administration representatives weren’t telling the whole story on Jan. 17, 2016, in their highly choreographed rollout of the prisoner swap and simultaneous implementation of the six-party nuclear deal, according to a POLITICO investigation.

In his Sunday morning address to the American people, Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as “civilians.” The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere “sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.”

In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security. Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration. Another was serving an eight-year sentence for conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware. As part of the deal, U.S. officials even dropped their demand for $10 million that a jury said the aerospace engineer illegally received from Tehran.

And in a series of unpublicized court filings, the Justice Department dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives. The administration didn’t disclose their names or what they were accused of doing, noting only in an unattributed, 152-word statement about the swap that the U.S. “also removed any Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians for whom it was assessed that extradition requests were unlikely to be successful.”

We Just Found Out That A Federal Grand Jury Issued Subpoenas In Hillary Clinton Email Case …WHAT WAS COMEY HIDING AND…….WHY? Why? Why?

 

A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.

According to the watchdog group, FBI counterintelligence official E.W. Priestap filed a sworn declaration stating that the FBI “obtained Grand Jury subpoenas related to the Blackberry e-mail accounts.”

The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,” stated Priestap, who supervised the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s potential mishandling of classified information as secretary of state.

Clinton used a private email server hooked up to her personal BlackBerries to send and receive business emails. Thousands of the messages contained classified information.


Priestap’s declaration is the first official acknowledgement that a grand jury was used in the Clinton email investigation. But the declaration raises new questions because of various reports stating that a grand jury never was convened as part of the probe.

It is unclear what other actions the grand jury took in the email investigation.

FBI Director James Comey ultimately announced on July 5 that he would not be recommending charges against Clinton for mishandling classified information.

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch’s president, questions why the information about the grand jury is just now being disclosed to his group, which has filed numerous lawsuits against the State Department and other agencies for records about Clinton’s emails.

“The FBI convened a grand jury to investigate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Why is this information being released only now?” Fitton asked in a statement. “And it is disturbing that the State Department, Justice Department and FBI are still trying to protect Hillary Clinton. President Trump needs to clean house at all these agencies.”

The Electoral College Is Genious

 


If you think a Trump presidency is illegitimate you should probably read this and get ya some knowledge.

We hear a cacophony of blaring and bleating from the media and the Hillary gaggle that she won the popular vote and therefore she should be president, 60,839,497 to 60,265,847. 47.8% to 47,3% with the remaining 4.9% going to the other candidates.

But here is the rest of the story:

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC. 62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.

Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California alone gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.

But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states and D.C., 51.3% to her 48.7%.

So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one high-populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager,
Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.

This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states
that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.

At its lowest point since the civil war, could this mean the end of the Democrat Party? With Trump as president, the Republican Party has:

1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court.

The above has never happened before in American history.

Think about that and let it sink in for a moment.

And it’s all because of one reason: Barack Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on a largely unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats.

It’s important to pass this on. With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended. By the way, that pathetic ad with actors trying to influence the EC to reject Trump saying that the reason for the EC is to prevent a demagogue from taking power was 99.9% wrong.

For excellent, short, explanations of the E.C., put together months before the election:
