Sorry, God -- You've Been "Cancelled"

 

 
Friends, there are lots of jaw-dropping developments these days.  Among the most shocking stories to come out of the Democratic Convention last week -- well, "shocking" if you haven't been following the collective delirium that's descended on the Dems -- was the decision of several of their meetings to omit "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.  Is God keeping score?  He tends to do that.  If so, the Dems may be in big trouble in November!
 

 
In other news, our heroes and heroines in law enforcement are getting pretty tired of being the Left's whipping boy du jour.  Morale is sinking.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden has the gall to claim that it's President Trump who wants to "defund the police".  Ha!  As if anyone would believe that the Dems are the champions of law enforcement!  Sleepy Joe: that dog won't hunt.
 

 
In addition, have you seen the stories about the rolling blackouts in California?  What a state!  Not only are you forbidden from leaving your home, but you also have to contend with periodic power outages.  As this article explains, part of the problem is the Golden State's antipathy to nuclear power and fossil fuels.  Alternative energy!  That's the answer.  Sure, it is the answer, if the question is, "How can we turn America into a Third World country?"
 

Finally, this article is a bit "blue" in verbiage, but it makes an outstanding point.  Joe Biden claims that he knew he had to run for president as soon as President Trump announced his support for the white supremacists in Charlottesville in 2017.  Well, the only problem is that Trump never did that.  In fact, he did the opposite.  The mythology of Trump's "white nationalism" is now so accepted on the Left and in the media, however, that such whoppers go unnoticed.  Outrageous!

  1. The Democrat party has become a "criminally negligent" political party that has forfeited its right to exist. The American people need to vote it out of existence in November 2020. Those who vote for Biden are criminally negligent.

    Regrettably, there are a lot of Americans who fit into this category, and in fact many could be classified as "intellectually challenged" and many more as simply mentally ill.

    Look at this damn fool running for President. The man is on the thin edge of dementia, and is controlled by a radically craze apparatus known as the Democrat National Committee. So if Biden wins in November 2020 we will officially have a criminal regime in power come January 2021.

    If the worst happens, every sane American has the right to resist in any legal way possible.

    1. Ray, Joe Biden has not urged that people use quack cures (disinfectant) or ineffective ones (hydroxychloroquine, or oleandrin that is being advocated by that great medical professional and coke addict Mike Lindell) for COVID nor has he claimed that windmills cause cancer. Trump has no business calling out Biden's supposed "dementia."

      In addition, Biden has not been in charge as 176,000 people have died from COVID, many needlessly because of the incompetence of Trump.

      As I recall, President Trump put 50 governors of 50 states in charge of COVID, did he not? By the way, I actually live in a state with a Democrat, Woman governor, and things where I live on The Great Plains are not nearly as nutty as places like New York and California, where the Trump haters who make the rules there blame everything on Trump, when THEY are the ones who control everything in their states. So who is incompetent? You need to get over your anti-Trump derangement and get a life!

    3. Ray, when President Obama had to deal with the H1N1 epidemic, less than 17,000 people died. Under Trump, 175,000 and climbing have died. The difference -- President Obama listened to the medical experts. Trump is listening to Mike "Mr. Cocaine Addict Pillow" Lindell.

  2. Fact checking with Snopes. How funny is this. I should put in fact checkers for FB and other Social Media; Mostly False BUT. Whatever. The very fact that TWO groups of people did not recite UNDER GOD. SO, I would agree, yes AND yes, since I watching, they did indeed leave it out on purpose. Is God keeping tabs? I would say furthur that GOD always knows what is going on.

    So many lies being told, and I agree with Ray 100%.

    1. Linda, first, you have NO evidence that the words were left out on purpose, and certainly have NOTHING to suggest this was done at the behest of the DNC. Second, from 1892 to 1954, "under God" was not part of the Pledge. It was inserted largely for political reasons. At worst, the people were just reciting the original version.

      Delete
    2. And nor do you know the real reason either. Also, that is not the point, Rod; "At worst, the people were just reciting the original version." The point is the word GOD was left out, period. Did you watch the Convention, Rod? Just wondering.

    3. The word God was left out on two occasions. Quite frankly, God should not even be in the pledge. It was added for political reasons, and ignores the concept of the separation of church and state.

    4. DR. CARVETH,

      You must be an atheist. Right?

  3. Dr. Waddy, this whole "God controversy" is an indication of just how frightened the Trump campaign is now that their primary attack -- that Joe Biden is too out of it to govern -- got blown up by Biden's fine acceptance speech.

    Quite frankly, all Dems would have to say is that they are being "originalist" in their approach to the Pledge of Allegiance. The original pledge lacked the words "under God" from 1892 until 1954. The words were inserted in part as a reaction to the state-sponsored atheism of the Soviet Union, and, as Kevin Kruse convincingly argues, as a way of showing that capitalism was "heavenly blessed."

      Since the original Pledge Allegiance was written by the Socialist Francis Bellamy, don't you think that God ordains Socialism as the best system?

  4. Dr. Waddy etalfrom Jack: Rod! Mike Lindell is a Coke addict? Maybe that is why his pillow feels so good to him. I remember my reflexive worker ant liberal supervisor when I was working for the ostensible "state" of NY admonishing me "with a vengeance" to remove a Santa Claus picture from my room. Oh horrors for my ignorant perfidy. After she left I put it right back up. My point is that her reaction was unthinking, programmed and entirely, yes, reflexive. And that it is the disorder which degrades most on the left: reflexive iconoclasm! Does 2+2 equal four? No! Is not good good? No it is bad. Is anything which represents a positive and constructive outlook on life as proved by centuries of human experience good? No it is very bad. Are Judaeo-Christian concepts of GOD good? No they are bad and everything associated with them or inspired by them is condemned. And so it is for "under God" and this is beyond dispute and reflexive compliance with this evaluation is mandated for all of good faith, solid intellect and political correctness.

  5. Rod from Jack: I remember when it changed to "under GOD". I was far too young as a second grader to understand it but I celebrate every last time I have repeated it since. President Eisenhower was one of the few foreigners to have joined Stalin on a review of Soviet troops from the top of Lenin's tomb shortly after the war. He did not miss the message of Soviet puissance and aggression meant for him. Even today and certainly in the '50's the two types of substantial structures one found in ANY US town big or small were the school and the churches. I would suggest that it was a most modestly honest assumption on President Ike's part to assume that that the addition: "under GOD", faithfully represented the beliefs of most Americans and WAS, yes, an appropriate riposte to the expressions and actions of an ideology fostered by a detached 19th century German antisemite (after 1900 years of intense Judaeo Christian documented introspection)in the comforting confines of a luxurious library in a half way humane country to which he had retreated because it gave him leave to express himself: Marx in the British Library. His airy (oh yes, because they rejected the hard won verities of history leading to Democracy and eventual prosperity) presumptions were seized upon by 20th century atheistic ( the supremely unreasonable presumption of all and present time) (Lenin and his murderous followers) both for personal aggrandizement and for justification of incalculable and often sadistic evil on an unprecedented scale.

  6. From time to time I get the idea that GOD does not endorse any political party or ideology.

  7. Ray, as you know I'm coming around to the view that the Democratic Party has lost its collective marbles. Animus seems to have conquered mental acuity on the Left.

    Rod, Trump never advocated the injection of disinfectant to cure anything. He merely said it would be nice if we had "something like" disinfectant that could be used internally. We DO have something like that. It's called "medicine". As for the so-called discredited drug treatments for COVID, there are an awful lot of M.D.s who share Trump's views. The worst he can be accused of is naive optimism in the search for a cure. The worst the Left can be accused of is pathological alarmism.

    Rod, are you seriously suggesting that two leftist cadres at the DNC left out "under God" BY MISTAKE? Come on! In your next breath, you declare that it doesn't matter, because "under God" is a recent addition, and these groups were just rediscovering our national heritage by reverting to the original version of the Pledge. Uh huh. I'm sure that's EXACTLY why they did it: their love of 19th century America. Leftist "originalism", my derriere!

    And was it not BLM that demanded the dethronement of "white Jesus"? We have long memories here at WaddyIsRight, Rod!

    And Jack: excellent point that, when we dethrone the Judeo-Christian God, as leftists are wont to do, we have to set up something or someone in His place. Secular utopian ideology is a popular choice. It promises much, but has a checkered track record, at best. I think even Rod might concede that point.

    Does God support the Republicans? I won't speak for God, but my impression is that He favors those who believe in Him and honor Him. Some Dems do that, in their own twisted way. Many go out of their way to spite God, assuming that He won't mind, because He doesn't exist. My view: we certainly can't count on God to send Sleepy Joe into retirement. God may be mad at America, and with good reason. He may believe that we're due for a plague of Bidens. So be it. He knows best. But I hope that, whoever wins in 2020, America will, sooner or later, rediscover and reaffirm the values that made it great -- and good.

  8. Did we mention that the original Pledge Allegiance was written by the SOCIALIST Francis Bellamy, and published in the September 8, 1892 edition of "The Youth's Companion"? Do we understand that the reason God was added in 1954, was not to justify our capitalist economy, but to show the officially atheist nation, The Soviet Union, that we were not atheist?

    1. The "under God" phrase was added in 1954 as an anti-Soviet move during the height of McCarthyism, but also had served the function of giving a religious blessing to our capitalist system.

      We have a mixed system. Our system is nor pure capitalism as such. Medicare and Social Security are both socialist.

  9. Dr. Waddy, I have no idea why "under God" was not spoken during the Pledge during those two caucuses, but there is NO EVIDENCE that it was directed by the DNC. If that was a DNC directive, why were all four nights led by a Pledge with an "under God" Pledge.

    You think God favors Trump. How has he honored God? He has cheated his business partners and vendors, cheated on all three wives, lied 20,000+ times when in office, and supported cruel policies such as separating child from their families. Not the God I have known in my long life as a Catholic.

    Here is what Trump said: ""And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning, because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that, so that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me."

    Trump was advocating injecting disinfectant.

    As far as hydroxychloroquine, there are no controlled studies showing its efficacy. The same with convalescent plasma -- no controlled studies showing its efficacy. Trump promises a vaccine by the end of the year. We have just started Phase 3 trials. We won't have results until the end of the year, let alone know if the vaccine is effective. Then it will take months to get a vaccine out to be injected.

    Trump knows nothing about science, but thinks he does -- which is dangerous.

  10. Dr.Waddy and Rod: Yes McCarthyism did have considerable influence in 1954; it's best that it did. Revelations subsequent to the fall of the USSR have substantiated the view that Russia had very deep inroads into our all too naive belief in "tolerance" and it's predictable consequences when opposed by sociopathic materialists. The theft of THE BOMB? Hiss, the #3 man in the StateDep't - his treason? The pollution of far too much of a generation by University leftist advocates by the PROVEN most murderous political and economic system ever devised by fevered and twisted human minds? McCarthy was crude and awkward but he was right. Perhaps much of his support came from WWII vetswho had seen totalitarian depravity first hand.

  11. Rod, you're right -- there's no evidence that the DNC, as an organization, advocates for the removal of "under God" from the Pledge...but you, who are as emblematic a lefty as anyone I know, seem to, or you walk right up to the line of doing so and dance a merry jig. You equate the "under God" reference with McCarthyism. Not exactly an endorsement. Clearly, your party is one that tolerates/encourages such thinking.

    Those "cages" for illegal immigrants separated by age and sex were built by Obama, not Trump, Rod. Everyone knows that by now, including you -- but let's keep on pretending otherwise. We can't let the truth get in the way of a good talking point.

    The long quotation that you cited is, indeed, what Trump said. There's no advocacy there. There's hope that doctors could discover "something like that" which would cleanse the body of disease. If Trump thought injecting disinfectant into one's veins was a good idea, he would have died a long time ago, and he would have taken his whole clan with him. You're not that lucky, Rod.

    Ray, maybe Francis Bellamy was a "socialist", but that word has meant different things to different people at different times. Perhaps his ideology was junk, but his patriotism was sound.

    1. Dr. Waddy. If it was up to me, I would delete "under God" from the pledge. It was added as a political move, and is an unnecessary blurring of the separation of church and state.

      The cages were built by President Obama and Biden as a temporary measure. It was not policy. Trump -- and his personal Goebbels, Steven Miller -- made it policy.

      Even if I accept your interpretation of what Trump said, the notion that he thinks there could be a disinfectant developed and safely injected into humans to get rid of COVID shows that he should be nowhere near policy involving health.

      BTW, I don't want anything bad to happen to Trump's health. I just want the Dems to beat him with a Russia-proof, and voter suppression-proof majority.

    2. DR. CARVETH,

      You just can't help yourself, can you? Whatever you think of Trump he is not a NAZI. Cut the Goebbels nonsense, now! Kind of ironic that Russia was the favorite country of leftists while it was communist, and now it is the enemy?

  12. Dr.Waddy and Rod:No,Ike didn't like McCarthy's style but surely he had no affection for"wronged" commies. He knew what totalitarianism wrought! He had his sight seared by it, his sense of smell savaged, his sleep assaulted by the unendurable images created by 20thcentury totalitarianism, nazi and (to all with common sense) commie too!

  13. Dr.Waddy from Jack. I would hope that anyone decrying the President's reference to disinfectant would also denounce madame pelosi's advocacy of a disinfectant on our White House (in order, perhaps to render it "politically correct)? But I see none of it!

  16. Rod, I'm sure it made a big difference to all the children put in cages by Obama and Biden that it wasn't POLICY. Oh no, not policy. Anything but that. A minor slip-up perhaps? "Oops, I just stuck you in a cage! Don't I have egg on my face..."

    Rod, I'm glad to hear that you don't wish illness or death on Trump himself. That makes you about a thousand times more humane than most "progressives" I come across. Kudos! Keep it up!

    Jack, I doubt very many people in 1954 would have thought to object to the addition of "under God" to the pledge. This was a country that endorsed no official religion, sure, but it was also a country that acknowledged the centrality of a Higher Power both to the Founders and to the modern practice of American democracy. I suppose there were a few atheists around in 1954, but they probably knew to pick their battles.

    I guess the Goebbels comparison went completely over my head. You mean Rod didn't mean it as a compliment? Huh. You learn something new every day. ;)
