Fiorina Crushes Tapper, Clinton in Late Term Abortion Ambush Question

fiorina takes down tapper 7 21 15

If you follow the link below to watch Carly Fiorina face off against a hostile media operative, you will notice some key techniques in good Freedom Apologetics.  In this video, the questioner is Jake Tapper, who, I must confess, is not as partisan as most media operatives, but it is clear in this exchange that Tapper is doing the bidding of the pro-abortion progressives.

Fiorina is on this show to ostensibly talk about HER campaign, but Tapper asks her about a tweet the Hillary sent out calling Walker an extremist for signing a late-term abortion ban law that did not allow for exceptions for rape or incest.

Everyone knows Hillary is putting the word extremist in close proximity to ‘abortion restrictions.’  These restrictions involve not allowing a licensed doctor of the state to enter into a woman’s body and hack to death, poison, suction, or stab in the heart an unborn child past the 20 week mark of pregnancy.

The tiny ground of morality progressives still have left on abortions is in the often-quoted, and incredibly rare, circumstances of rape and incest triggering a woman’s desire to have a late term abortion.  No one, of course, wants to ask how a woman has managed to go 20 weeks with a baby and can’t make it for the final 16 weeks, but I digress, and, like Carly, I want to stay on the solid moral ground that people of pro-life have, the fact that babies aborted after 20 weeks are brutally murdered in ways that no one, if they are fully aware of what such abortions entail, could defend them.

What Jake Tapper attempts to do is to offer Carly a very small piece of ground to stand on, to defend Walker’s signing of a piece of legislation that doesn’t allow for the exception of rape or incest.  Tapper’s quote of Hillary’s tweet, repeating the tag “extremist”, is a nice attempt to subliminally let the listener know that being pro-life makes you an extremist, that Walker is an extremist, that Fiorina, unless she condemns Walker, is an extremist.

Carly does not accept the battlefield conditions.  Like a good general, SHE chooses the battlefield and forces Tapper to defend the undefendable, the hacking of unborn babies, a procedure vigorously supported by Clinton and her pro-murder supporters.  She turns the tables on Tapper, making this extremist label about Hillary and her support of an organization that, we are learning through undercover videos, is actually SELLING the hacked remains of babies.

What is more extreme, signing a bill that does not allow for the EXTREMELY rare cases of rape and incest triggering an abortion AFTER the 20th week of pregnancy, or supporting the hacking to death of unborn children so that Planned Parenthood can sell their brains and livers to scientists? This technique should simply be referred to as “define YOUR battlefield.”  This is exactly what Fiorina did, she defined the battlefield, a battlefield where her ideas, her positions crush the opposition, and where Tapper ends up coming across a partisan hack desperately trying to score points against the political opponents of his handlers.

The Trumpification of Everything (Or How to Get Along with Others)

Donald Trump Apologetics 7 20 15

I have nothing whatsoever against people who do not support Trump, who think he’s not a real conservative, who thinks he’s bad for the GOP, who thinks a Trump nomination will guarantee a loss in 2016.

I myself am absolutely not a Trump supporter.  I believe that Donald Trump will not deliver on the promises he is making, that he is actually making unrealistic promises.  I believe that he, at least for me, doesn’t go nearly far enough in challenging the power of the Federal government, that a Trump presidency might very well see an increase in Federal power, not a decrease, and I am concerned that his foreign policy might be extremely nationalistic and get us involved in wars which could directly threaten the lives of my family and friends at fighting age.

I do not, however, believe the supporters of Trump are idiots, are undesirables, are part of a conservative coalition that everyone in that coalition would be better off not having in the coalition.  These folks are not crazy, they are not uninformed, they are not un-serious.

I take them very seriously and I recognize that if conservatives wish to win in 2016, they will need ALL HANDS ON DECK to have a chance to stop a candidate that, in my opinion, is far more dangerous than Trump, than even Bush.  Perhaps only Lindsey Graham might fairly give Hillary a run for her money in the dangerous department.

Mind you, for military folks and for the nations of the world, Trump might actually be more dangerous than Hillary, but he’s far more interested in the world’s stuff than he is in our stuff.

Do you recall the way many conservatives embraced Vladimir Putin when he began to butt heads with Obama, especially in the Syria chemical weapons debacle?  Facebook was filled with Putin is awesome memes, contrasting Obama, the girls’ bicycle rider, with Putin, the T-rex ridin’, no shirt wearin’ tough guy.

Putin is not afraid of the PC crowd, not afraid of Obama, not afraid of zombies even.  Putin is unapologetically pro-Russia.  On the world stage, he cares little for niceties, he fights for Mother Russia.  He will crush states for the sake of Mother Russia.

Think of the GOP Presidents we have had since Bush I.  Tepid, apologetic, UN-approval seeking, refusing to even battle the progressives squarely, ruthlessly, without mercy.  The progressives have in Obama a strongman, a leader who will do whatever it takes, who will lie, cheat, steal, crush ANYONE who stands between him and his Mother Russia, the progressive party.  On the world stage, even, he serves Mother Progressive over Mother America, and decisively so.

Of all the GOP contenders, who among them is willing to look a progressive in the eye and say, “You’re a murderer, you’re an evil person who should have no place in the public square.”  Now, I’m not saying they SHOULD say that, but I will tell you there is a significant portion of folks in the conservative coalition who are desperate for someone to say such things.

Do they want this because they are stupid or bad people?  No, they want this because, like many of us, they feel beaten, worn down, always defeated, betrayed by their own leaders.  They want their own Obama, or, more accurately, their own Putin.  Donald Trump is the GOP’s Putin.

They don’t care about the test for conservative purity.  They don’t give two plug nickels for what Trump did or said in the past. They don’t even care if he insulted McCain and POWs.  Those days are done for them.  There have been far too many equivocators, soft negotiators telling them they need to get along to go along to get along, only to watch progressives win battle after battle with the HELP of their own party leaders.

They only care that here and now he is actually doing something NO GOP LEADER has done since Reagan, defiantly and unapolgetically standing up against the enemy. This is not to suggest that Trump is Reagan.  No, unlike Trump, Reagan could essentially call you a thief and an adulterer and have you walk away still liking him.  Trump does not have the gifts of Reagan, but he does have Reagan’s passion and unflinching resoluteness.

Like many of you, I too hope to see Donald Trump go the way of the Dodo bird, metaphorically, but I believe that there is a much smarter way to bring about that reality, and it’s not by using Alinksy-like tactics against Trump or by constantly eviscerating his supporters, or by seizing on his every gaff, or by digging up all the dirt you can about his ‘draft dodging’ past (I think that’s the latest Alinsky tactic being deployed by conservatives against Trump).

If I am right, none of these tactics will do anything but solidify his hard-core supporters and ensure that, come the summer of 2016, those Trump supporters, if their guy is not in it, won’t be knocking on doors, sending in money, and, in November, might not even show up to vote.

One well-respected conservative writer (whose name will be withheld) even stated he wanted to destroy Trump AND his supporters.  That’s right, conservatives out there want to hack off a significant part of the coalition because they hate Trump and they can’t imagine how everyone else doesn’t hate him as well.

For this next part, I will be borrowing heavily from Felecia Cravens’ excellent article that appeared on Liberty Juice.

Felecia really captures what I have been saying for some time now, as this Trump feud has gotten nastier and nastier:
“The real question then is how to make that an easier decision for those supporters of the losing candidates when the time comes.  That actually means planning far in advance of the primary result, strategically preparing the ground for the unity and cooperation you want to see.  That means fostering the conditions that will make it more than possible; that will make it INEVITABLE.”

If Trump does, in fact, actually lose (and I am inclined still to believe he will), you should be prepared, well in advance, for how you welcome back those family members you may have been in disagreement with earlier.  If the fights get to be too nasty (I’ve seen conservatives block each other on Facebook over Trump), you may not have a family member at all when the dust settles.

Felecia goes on to outline some clear steps we should take when advocating for our candidate and challenging supporters of another candidate.

1.)  Pitch Your Guy – We don’t respond well to the people who try to build themselves up by tearing others down in our personal lives, and any candidate making that a primary tactic will ultimately turn people off. Sure, the other candidates have failings – some too numerous to mention – but your first job as a supporter of your candidate is to SELL THAT CANDIDATE…..

2.)  Target the Real Enemy – The GOP primary is a horserace, sure. But it’s actually just Phase I in a two-part job interview. Phase II is all about winning the general election; convincing the apolitical, the independents, the casual voters that both your team (GOP) and your candidate (who just won the primary, of course) are better for the country than the person the Democrats field…..

Keep an eye open for opportunities to attack Democrat policies that are hurting the country. Draw strong contrasts between those policies and the ones your candidate will be running on. Connect the dots for people so that they see your candidate has better policies and actual solutions for problems we face…..

3.)  Be Gracious – …..Sure, there’s going to be some blood drawn in the coming months, but at the same time, conservative values and issues are going to be front and center in a way they haven’t in a long time. The more we focus on articulating those issues and promoting them, the less opportunity the media will have to make the conversation about infighting, personalities, and candidate conflicts…..

4.)  Think ‘Family’ – Andy Peth of The Party of Choice draws a great contrast between the Left and our coalition on the right. “Collectives control people; we free them. Collectives thrive on conformity; we thrive on challenge. Thus, while control rallies the Left, it only splinters the Right. To defeat the Collective, we must unify as something empowering to individuals: We must be a family.”

I highly recommend you read this whole article by going here.

I want to end my article, adding to what Felecia said above, by calling on some basic biblical standards.  You don’t have to be a Christian to use these standards, so, if you are not a Christian, bear with me while I quote bible verses.

First, this is from 1st Corinthians 13-
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

The people who support Trump ARE part of your conservative family.  You will desperately need them.  You need to practice these standards of love when you approach them.  Yes, love rejoices with the truth, but it is also PATIENT, kind.  As Felicia said, you don’t need to invalidate people to make the case for your candidate, or (and I’ll add this) AGAINST their candidate.

Lastly, I want to share 1st peter 3-
15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

The key phrase in this passage is this, “do this with gentleness and respect.”  This is a basic tenet of good apologetics.  If your words are invalidating, if they are being used to demean your opponent, then your effectiveness at actually sharing truth ends.  You will drive them further away and closer to what you think is not the truth.

Author George MacDonald once said, “To give truth to him who loves it not is only to give him more plentiful reasons for misinterpretation.”

Theodore Roosevelt said, “‘People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care’   If you want to have standing to speak to people about why you think Trump is not the right choice, why your candidate of choice is a better one, you better not start off the conversation by saying, “Trump is an idiot and anyone who follows him is nuts.”  More often than not, all you’ve done is permanently shut a door and created an even more committed Trump supporter.

Whether you stick with Trump or not, I will continue to welcome you and accept you as a member of the coalition to stop the progressive party from controlling the White House and the Executive branch for another four years, of stopping a progressive, a hard-core progressive, from having the chance to replace moderate and/or conservative Judges on the Supreme Court.

It is time to act like officers in an army and not high school kids in the cafeteria.  It is time to think, right now, about November 2016.

Converting Human Potential to Machine Batteries

The questions I sometimes ask myself go something like this-
Are the overwhelming majority of people incapable of the type of critical, self-aware thinking required to make informed decisions about who governs them and how they should be governed?
If the overwhelming majority of people really are simply incapable of such critical thinking, a republic that requires an active, informed citizenry is impractical.  It’s always vulnerable to manipulation and exploitation by more intellectually advanced, and less than scrupulous agents.
A volunteerist community, a stateless community, would also be impractical as, once again, a people of idiots would easily be manipulated to revert back to and accept, even cry out for, a strong man to protect them and think for them.
One thing I have forgotten is the many people I have met in my life that people have told me are not that smart.  Some of these folks flunked out of high school, some can barely read and write.  Yet, for all that, I have found it very rare that the people I have gotten to know do not demonstrate high intelligence in one or more fields of interest in their lives.
Among this group of folks that I have been told are just not smart, I have been challenged in my thinking and found myself on the losing side of an intellectual debate, even if they might not have the high-level vocabulary.
I am beginning to believe that Americans have been CONDITIONED to be non-critical, to be emotion-led, to be pleasure-seekers, to have a hard time facing their own mind in silence for any period of time, to be without self awareness.
I am beginning to believe that the machines of power NEED consumers and drones, and that the self aware, the critical thinkers, do not fit into the slots these machine managers need to continue to preserve their exploitative system.
Americans have become the batteries of engines that will dispose of them as quickly as possible when they outlive, if they do, their battery usefulness.
Education in America is the heart of that battery-conversion, from human to machine battery the public schools make the machine managers what they need, what they want to keep their machines running and vast unwashed out of their gated communities.
If you want to have a revolution in America, destroy the public schools.
The question is this- how do we transition from battery-conversion to human empowerment?  We do not reform a school system, we wholly reject it, destroy it, suffer the pains, like going cold turkey from smoking.
Within one generation, the America of the people of ingenuity and self-reliance would be restored,

My Comittment to Expose the True Nature of Progressivism

I may be losing a lot of friends over the coming days and weeks. Whatever you think about taxation, wealth redistribution. gay rights, the ‘right to choose’, having a small or large military, if you are part of the progressive party, you are part of something that is about a lot more than the issues I outlined above.
Progressivism is a de-humanizing, political and corporate class enriching, genocidal, race supremecist ideology of hate and despair.
As we have now entered a stage where progressivism has all but consolidated its stranglehold on the land, it is time for those of us who KNOW what this ideology REALLY is to boldy proclaim our Ezekial warning to the land.
Repent of your embrace of evil. Repent of your enabling of wicked, wanna-be tyrants. If you continue to serve and empower the rise of this amoral, liberty-murdering ideology, you will be remembered as one of the dark enablers of evil.
It is time to make clear lines in the sand between those of us who reject the tyranny of this awful ideology and those who continue to serve, promote and make apologies for this doctrine of death.
Progressivism must be destroyed or we must die trying.
This is our Dietrich Bonhoeffer moment.
NOTE: I hate ideologies, not people. I want to destroy power, not people. My hope is that those who support progressivism will have their eyes opened and realize the true ideology that underlies the issues they THINK progressivism is all about. I will be showing what progressivism is in the words of the founders of this dangerous ideology. It’s about so much more than equality and justice, it’s about elitist empowerment and lower class expendability.

Rule of Law is Power- Act Like it

The Rule of Law is pure power. Have at it folks. Thank you progressives for all that you have done to take our gloves off for us.

The language of the progressive is power. There is no other foundation of truth for the progressive. You must meet the progressive in this language and this language alone in the field of
‘law.’ The only standard is this- who holds the power?
It is time to make the empire of death shake.

The only candidate that understands and has demonstrated power is Scott Walker. No one else is even close. They all have warts, including Walker, but no one ever proved they were not afraid to use power in the face of the full force of the WHOLE progressive machine like Walker has.
He gutted them. Like a fish. In a purple state.
I don’t care about rhetoric, pretty hair, family lineage, Walker IS power.

We conservatives have spent far too long playing by the old rules when liberals have completely changed the game. There was a time when laws meant what…

Alexander Hamilton’s Love Affair with Monarchy

Hamilton injected very un-republican institutions into our republic…
OF THE UNITED STATES. ” While Washington was absent, Jefferson invited the members of the cabinet, and Mr. Adams, to dine with him, to consult on Genet’s movements. After dinner Mr. Adams said:’Purge the British Constitution, and give to its popular branch equality of representation, and it would be the most perfect Constitution ever devised by the wit of man.’ Hamilton said:’Purge it of its corruption, and give to its popular branch equality of representation, and it would become an impractical government As it stands at present, with all its supposed defects, it is the most perfect government that ever existed.”‘ On the subject of Hamilton’s admiration of monarchy, Mr. Jefferson says: “Mr. Butler tells me that he dined last * winter in company with Hamilton and others Hamilton declared openly that there was no stability, no security, in any kind of government but a monarchy.” Again, under date of December 27, 1797, Jefferson says: “Finch Cox tells me that a little before Hamilton went out of office, (three years before,) Hamilton said: “For my part, I avow myself a monarchist; I have no objection to a trial being made of this thing called a republic, but,” &c. Mr. Hamilton never disguised these sentiments. He never let an occasion pass to praise the British monarchy as “the best government ever devised.” But while Washington was President the monarchist party were allowed to make no headway in the councils of the Confederacy. No sooner, however, than John Adams was seated in the executive chair, than the cloven foot of monarchism, which the Convention that framed the Constitution supposed it had lopped off, made its appearance again On this subject Mr. Jefferson said: “Mr. Adams had originally been a Republican (Democrat.) The glare of royalty and nobility, during his mission in England, had made him believe their fascination to be a necessary ingredient in government. His book on the American Constitution had made known his political bias. He was taken up by the monarchical federalists in his absence, and on his return to the United States he was by them made to believe that the general disposition of our citizens was favorable to monarchy.” Under date of Dec. 26, Jefferson says: “Langdon tells me that Adams (in allusion to votes given for Clinton,) gritting his teeth, said:’ Damn ’em, damn’ em, you see that elective government won’t do.”‘ The election of Mr. Adams to the Presidency, or the accession to power of the monarchist party, which was so signally baffled in the Federal Constitutional Convention, was the destruction of liberty in America for the time being. During the whole of Mr. Adams’ administration a complete reign of terror afflicted the whole land. The 4lien laws” put every American in the United States completely at the mercy or whim of the President, and the “Sedition Act” put the liberty and personal safety of every Democrat at the disposal of his caprice or malice. Democrats were mercilessly thrown into dungeons, or knocked down in the public streets with impunity. Their printing offices were destroyed; their editors were seized and imprisoned for uttering the slightest syllable against the despotic acts of the President.
