Tom Brokaw v. Founding Fathers
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/21/2013 8:51:44 AM

Thursday Jan 17, Tom Brokaw was given time on MSNBC to tell the Founding Fathers the self-evident truths they laid their lives on the line for are farfetched. Are we lucky, or what? Our talking heads know so much more than the men who pledged their lives, their sacred honor to free us from the tyranny of Kings and establish real freedom. Brokaw spoke with Andrea Mitchell. He aimed his remarks at people who believe in the Constitution by saying, in a scholarly formal tone (which passes for derision in his circles), that 2nd Amendment types who say

I guess that if old tom had lived in Norway during the 1940s, he would have been called a Quisling.

Tom had so much smoke blown up his butt while news reader, it´s still seeping out - with the same smugness, arrogance and lack of erudition it went in with.

Tom, "it is better to be silent and be thought ignorant than to speak, and remove all doubt."

Tom, you´re just a journalist and tied with the politician for the bottom rung of the intellectual ladder.

Tom Brokaw; a legend in his own mind.

How many millions did Brokaw make feasting on the carcass of "The Greatest Generation"? What exactly did the
"Greatest Generation" fight for?

Isn´t is odd they attack the 2nd amendment. Some so far as to say that the constitution was written before the advent of assault weapons. How about this? The 1st amendment (freedom of speech) was written before the advent MSNBC, NPR, CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington, et al? These libersl do-gooders, are jerks and are simply opportunists, liars all.

The hubris of these Progressives is breathtaking. To think that they are smarter and WISER then our Founding Fathers is laughable. The Founding Fathers studied governments, their history, and various operational mechanisms particular to that philosophy; thoroughly.

I asked one of my (former) socialist friends why he thought he was smarter and wiser then the Founding Fathers, he didn´t answer and he didn´t change his mind.

Why we need to have guns. Remember Elian Gonzalez, the little boy who was forcefully returned to CUBA? Ignorance seeps from Brokaw´s every pore. Please see:

Tom Brokaw zooms like a creepy wizard into the newsrooms during times of editorializing--inaugurations, elections, national tragedy.Why is he given so much air & print space? Brokaw was the one who called U.S. a nation of spoiled brats for electing President Reagan.

Brokaw owns countless acres in Wyoming that back up to National Forests. So I am guessing most days he´s leading the good life secured for him by bad-mouthing the very system that got him there. No guns for U.S. while he lives in the mountains far from the strife of maddness. Must be that sitting in a ivory tower leads him to believe he´s better than those who founded this nation.

Obamas attend Easter services at
Nineteenth Street Baptist Church
Washington Post, by Staff/Pool Report    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 2:57:49 PM     Post Reply
The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George flew into Australia´s capital Canberra on Sunday night and made sure to co-ordinate their family colours of royal blue. The Royal Family stepped off the plane as a trio, Kate in an above-the-knee Stella McCartney dress, which matched George´s knit cardigan and William´s blue checked tie. After walking off the plane, Prince William shook hands with the Governor General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove at Fairbairn Airport.

The premature presidential polls have started rolling out and are consistent: The race for the White House is as much a fantasy as “Game of Thrones” — filled with as many off-the-mark, off-their-rocker relatives and pretender-contenders to the throne as any “Song of Ice and Fire": REPUBLICANS -Jeb Bush, Son of George the First, brother of George the Second -The Good: Last-name recognition - The Bad: Last-name recognition: Brother Bush’s illegal war and the collapse of the economy.

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado´s ´Hot Jesus´:

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
