over Salvation Army ties

Pete Buttigieg has been outed — as someone who has worked with the Salvation Army. According to a report Tuesday in Out magazine, the South Bend mayor has several times participated in Red Kettle Ring Off for the Christmas season in the Indiana city. Out linked to reports of the annual charity in local South Bend media from 2015 and 2017, and at least one other photo from 2016 surfaced on Twitter. In 2018, he held the annual Mayor’s Night Out — an open-listening event to let residents quiz city officials — at a Salvation Army community center.

Can anyone good come from South Bend? The city is on its last leg in too many ways. An absentee mayor doesn’t help much.

Clearly, the gay community will not tolerate even an appearance of brushing up against a Christian organization. What they are doing is creating animosity when there was little or none before. Most people are tolerant but the gay community is so radIcal and militant that they are constantly looking for anything that will set them off in a fit of pique. They are creating division. It is not enough to tolerate their lifestyle, we must celebrate it and now indoctrinate our children in its goodness. Their radical militancy is turning most of us off. The upside is that donations will increase to the Salvation Army as a non-violent expression of our disgust with LGBTQ intolerance. I know I will make sure to give even more this year to the Salvation Army.

I just do not get it. The Salvation Army does not discriminate against people in need regardless of who they are and what they believe. It is probably the most efficient charitable group out there with regard to getting the most done with less money. They are everywhere and always show up. On 9/11 The SA was one of the first on the scene providing support, water and food to the first responders while the Red Cross was trying to figure out what to do. These people are good and I, like others will increase my giving this year. In addition, Chic-fil-A has lost my business. They don't have the back bone I thought they had.

I know that there are gays who quietly live their lives and just want to be left alone, (there are a couple in my extended family) but they need to do something about the face of their “community”, just as decent blacks need to do something about their “leaders”. The LGBTwhatever activists are quite simply evil.

Organizations like the SA and Samaritan's Purse are true charities, unlike the scam jobs of Red Cross and United Way. For one thing, neither devotes funds to abortion and favored gay groups, but RC and UW sure do.

First of all, let's dispense with this ridiculous charade that gays (or if they prefer LGBTQAEIOU and sometimes Y WTF) are discriminated against in this country. Last June we were treated to an entire month where every medium to large Municipality in this country and every moneygrubbing Wall Street corporation commemorated ad nauseum the immense pride that the alphabet people feel for their grand accomplishment of misusing their lower intestinal tract as a sex organ. Yes, at one time, homosexuals were treated shabbily that has been changed. Most people want to mind their own business and leave them alone. They are left alone as long as they practice their proclivities with consenting adults and behind closed doors. But, that isn't good enough for them. They have now become pushy and annoying. Merely disagreeing with their advocacy groups on homosexual marriage is grounds for being attacked and destroyed, as if dissent on this subject is not allowed. Realize that most Democrat politicians, including Obama, were opposed to gay marriage just a few short years ago. Plus, nobody can point to any society in history that has normalized and practiced homosexual marriage. This is a very large change in human society and they act as if it is just an axiomatic progression. This is just the homosexual advocacy groups' latest attempts to throw around their political weight for the purpose of asserting political power.

FYI, not all gay people are against the Salvation Army. Most gay people are just ordinary people trying to make their way in life. Some even make a serious attempt to follow Jesus. They may see things differently from the mainstream of Christianity when it comes to human sexuality and marriage. Most are not intolerant of people who hold traditional views. Please do not lump all gay folks together. The Salvation Army is a fine organization made up of true soldiers of Jesus Christ. It is a far cry from organizations who seek to trash those who disagree with their views. "For not with swords' loud clashing, nor roll of stirring drum, with deeds of love and mercy the heavenly kingdom comes" (a line from the hymn "Lead On, O King Eternal").

I remember back around 1989 discussing gay rights with gay rights supporters. They swore that gays weren't about recruiting or against organizations or Christians and just wanted to live their lifestyle in peace. The gay rights supporters were either ignorant or liars.

Ok, I guess the Christian angle is what the leftist -homos hate; which is sad, because the Salvation Army is about the last charity that actually operates primarily for the benefit of the people they claim to want to help, rather than the benefit of their founders, and executives.

How House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi greenlighted the impeachment proceedings in September, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made a key tactical decision: He would not to worry about blocking it but focus instead on shaping public opinion and influencing lawmakers poised to sit as jurors in a Senate trial. The California Republican spent four-plus years as whip, his party’s chief House vote-counter. He intuitively understood that if a previously reluctant Pelosi had opted to put her political muscle behind impeachment, there was a little Republicans could do to stop her 233 Democrats from voting for it. McCarthy began huddling with his leadership team and top committee lieutenants, while consulting closely

In a months-long investigation, we learned that no one really knows just how many buildings the federal government has — not even the feds themselves [here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here]. In recent years, the government’s own estimates have ranged from about 120,000 to 400,000. And these figures do not even include the Defense Department and Intelligence agencies. According to its most recent reporting, DoD has about 280,000 buildings in the U.S. and abroad. All totaled, the federal government may own and lease about two-thirds of a million buildings. Maintenance expenditures for government facilities are also not fully known. Government estimates range as high as $21 billion spent annually

Michael Bloomberg vowed Thursday to re-institute a federal assault weapons ban and require more rigorous background checks and licensing to obtain firearms if he’s elected president. The billionaire former mayor, who recently launched his 2020 Democratic primary bid, laid out the gun control agenda during an event in Aurora, Colorado — where a deranged man killed 12 in a movie theater in 2012. In addition to the assault weapons ban, Bloomberg called for raising the age to buy a gun from 18 to 21, the same for purchasing booze.

Congressional Democrats have pushed too hard on President Trump's impeachment hearings and may force Republican senators to dismiss the case altogether, said former special prosecutor Ken Starr on Thursday. Starr appeared on "The Brian Kilmeade Show" on Fox News Radio to discuss the impeachment inquiry and said he was shocked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, D-Calif., "abuse of power." "It's an outrage to seize control of the deliberate process of a committee -- [it] simply compounds a series of very, very terrible abuses," he said. "The House Judiciary committee with its incredibly rich history needs to go into... an open session and debate this."

Cory Booker moans that the Democrats are “spiraling towards a debate stage that could have six people with no diversity whatsoever.” This statement is flatly false. The six Dems who have locked up places on the debate stage are Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Tom Steyer. On this list are two women, a gay male, and a Jew. Clearly, it is a diverse group. To say that it contains “no diversity whatsoever” is to read women, gays, and Jews out of the identity politics game. Heretofore, only Jews have been read out.

Sen. Kamala Harris, once considered a 2020 presidential Democratic frontrunner, ended her bid for the nomination on Tuesday, citing a lack of funds. “I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign,” she wrote in an email to supporters. “And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.” Harris becomes the second major candidate to drop out of the primary race before Iowa, joining Beto O’Rourke, who bowed out last month after failing to gain significant support and running out of money. Why did Harris crash?

The FBI already has amassed a record of misconduct by top officials leading up to Monday, when the Justice Department inspector general is scheduled to release conclusions on whether agents also abused the bureau’s intrusive wiretapping powers. To date, four inspector general reports and internal Justice Department documents have found senior FBI officials guilty of lying, insubordination, security violations, mishandling confidential material and personal biases against President Trump. Rep. Devin Nunes, the California Republican who discovered that the FBI had used a Democratic Party-financed dossier as evidence, often refers to bureau leaders as “dirty cops.”
Trump’s Commonsensical Food-Stamp Rule 14 replies

Our food-stamp program has some bizarre loopholes in it, and the Trump administration is trying to close them. A new rule finalized today attacks one in particular. In theory, the program has a strict time limit for “ABAWDs,” or able-bodied adults without dependents: If they don’t meet their work requirement or receive a case-by-case exemption from their state, they may receive food stamps for at most three months in any 36-month period. But in practice, the executive branch has broad discretion to waive the limit for large geographic areas with weak labor markets — and previous administrations used that discretion promiscuously.

Anyone holding out hope that Wednesday’s impeachment hearing by the House Judiciary Committee would consist of thoughtful testimony from impartial constitutional scholars was destined to be disappointed. Four witnesses appeared, three of whom were chosen by Democratic Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who restricted the Republican committee members to a single voice of reason crying in the congressional wilderness. All of Nadler’s choices were vehemently pro-impeachment, including two longtime Democratic donors who contributed to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and a regular columnist for a “news service” owned by Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg. Even the solitary Republican witness freely admitted he had voted for Hillary Clinton.

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

Sen. Kamala Harris would have been an excellent president. But it was never going to happen. The elephant in the room was just too big. She is a woman and she is black. And in the aftermath of Donald Trump, she never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. That’s why she abruptly withdrew from the race on Tuesday. America isn’t progressive enough to elect a black woman as head of state, any more than it was when Shirley Chisholm ran in 1972. It’s questionable whether our country can elect a woman, period.
