First Amendment Watchdog by William Piercey Sr. en-us A Four-Year-Old Boy Validates my Trump Vote We are living in strange, uncertain times, and my final commitment to join the Trump anti-establishment movement was validated recently by a chance encounter with an inspiring four-year-old boy. As a community blogger, I made light of Donald Trump’s pursuit of the presidential nomination in several of my early blogs. I confess I was too quick to join the doubters and almost let myself succumb to being overly judgmental, which goes against my own principles. I was so frustrated with the... Tue, 28 Jun 2016 10:56:36 -0500 Out of the Ashes... Arises “Trump the Terminator” Donald Trump, if elected our 45th president, will be known as the 2016 reincarnation of former California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. While both men had no political experience, both men had national name recognition—Schwarzenegger, for his Terminator role, and Trump, for his popular television series, “The Apprentice.” In the 2003 recall election of California Governor Gray Davis, Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy in flamboyant style on The Tonight Show with Jay... Sat, 27 Feb 2016 15:04:38 -0600 The Anti-Government Tidal Wave of 2016 Does anyone remember this quote from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address? “This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” The 21st century interpretation reads more like--“of the government, by the government, and for the political elite, the lobbyists, the big money donors, the activists, the special interest groups, the crony capitalists, the unelected... Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:38:41 -0600 The Evolving Drama of Trump, Carson and Clinton At this very moment, America's founding fathers are probably undergoing an intervention with their personal psychiatrists in heaven. I can only imagine they're looking down from their heavenly perch at the current leaders of the 2016 presidential campaign, and thinking, "What to hell has happened to our beloved republic? " They may have a point. Let's analyze the top three candidates who are running for the most powerful job in the world. First, we have the most colorful... Mon, 09 Nov 2015 22:07:53 -0600 9/11--A History Lesson for all Americans The most powerful nation in the world was shaken to its core on September 11, 2001, by the actions of just nineteen men. Those al-Qaeda inspired terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and conducted the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. A total of 2,977 innocent souls were lost that day in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. America came to a standstill, as millions watched the shocking events unfold on national television. People of all religions fell to... Thu, 10 Sep 2015 09:38:45 -0500 Seriously--Donald or Hillary--Who Would Get Your Vote? Personally, I'm really stumped. Both candidates are highly qualified. The GOP candidate, Donald Trump, is a billionaire real estate developer and former television celebrity. Much like the average American, he was born into wealth and was married three times-- first to a fashion model, next to an aspiring actress, and finally, to another beautiful model, Melania. The all-American couple lives in a modest penthouse located at the Trump Tower in Manhattan. Their living space... Mon, 31 Aug 2015 19:11:34 -0500 Is "Trump the Braveheart" Igniting a Political Revolution? Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has awakened the revolutionary spirit of millions of Americans who live in the forgotten landscape between the liberal fortresses of New York City and Washington D.C, and the sanctuary cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles. The media is trying its best to destroy Trump, but their efforts may be futile. Following his speech in Alabama before an estimated crowd of 30,000, Politico ran with this headline: "Ghost of George Wallace Loomed Large over... Sat, 22 Aug 2015 19:11:25 -0500 THE FUDGE REPORT: Donald Trump's Secret Presidential Bucket List--revealed by Roger Stone! Roger Stone, who was recently fired by Donald Trump as a campaign advisor, told a Fudge reporter that the eccentric billionaire has begun a secret "bucket list" of actions he would take as president. President Trump would immediately remodel the Oval Office and rename it America's Board Room. Second, an escalator will be installed from the second floor of the White House to the presidential helicopter landing area, so Mr. Trump doesn't have to walk all the way across the back White... Wed, 12 Aug 2015 11:21:47 -0500 The Life of Christians and Caucasians in an Ever-Changing America. Faith and family were once considered the moral foundation of America. But not surprisingly, a Pew Research study conducted earlier this year showed the Christian percentage of our population has dropped nearly 10% since the last survey eight years ago. One of the troubling findings was the fact that millennials are leaving the religious fold, with more than one-third of these young adults saying they're not affiliated with any faith. To publicly profess your Christianity, would be to... Sun, 02 Aug 2015 22:30:07 -0500 "How's That Constitutional Democracy Working Out?" asks King George III. If King George III were alive today and could write a blog, I believe it would read something like the following: Two-hundred and thirty-nine years ago your forefathers declared their independence from Great Britain and my monarchy. In the year 2015, how's that constitutional democracy working out for you? You may call your leaders presidents, but it appears to me your country has been slowly grooming families that tend to govern more like royalty. Of the past twenty-seven... Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:26:05 -0500 TAXPAYER INEQUALITY. "No Justice. No Taxes." I think it's fair to say Americans are sick of being lectured on the epidemic of inequalities in the United States--income inequality--gender inequality--education inequality--social inequality--opportunity inequality--racial inequality--and on and on. If you Google "inequality in America", you get over 40 million results! My head is going to explode! Why do we live in such a horrible country? Okay, my progressive-liberal friends, let's pretend you really believe in tolerance,... Sun, 15 Feb 2015 12:23:06 -0600 NBC'S Brian Williams Joins the "Liberal Liar's Club" My heart aches when I think of all the traumatic situations NBC's Brian Williams found himself in as a war correspondent and television news journalist. Surely, he must be suffering from PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. We can only imagine what it's like to be trapped in a Chinook helicopter taking on enemy fire in Iraq, with rocket-propelled grenades whizzing by, and you realize this may be your final moments on earth. Just read this one excerpt from a 2005 interview with Tim... Wed, 11 Feb 2015 12:02:37 -0600 "Obama Reality TV"--Starring a Disconnected President. Let's not talk politics for a moment. No matter what your political affiliation may be, I would hope we could all agree the office of the President of the United States deserves to be respected, and above all, should be embraced with dignity and honor. Every move made by President Obama, and every word he utters, is a reflection of the United States and its citizens, and is reported worldwide. At a time when dangerous terrorists are being released from Gitmo, the U.S.-backed government... Fri, 23 Jan 2015 11:51:52 -0600 "Dead Cops...Now!"--Anarchy Comes to America Two weekends ago, protesters in New York City were heard chanting, "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!" Thousands of protesters ended their day-long march blocking a portion of the Brooklyn Bridge, and two NYPD officers were assaulted. Among the peaceful demonstrators, who were exercising their first amendment rights, were professional agitators, race-baiters, and anti-government protesters, who only wanted to promote violence. One of the arrested... Sun, 21 Dec 2014 16:20:12 -0600 My Top Ten Christmas Gifts for Naughty Progressives 1. Sen. Diane Feinstein: A two-week all-expense paid trip to the CIA's "black site" in Egypt, where she'll be pampered with unusual yoga stress positions while listening to Green Day's "American Idiot," 24/7, and finally, she'll receive free waterboarding lessons from the CIA's top torture architect, James Mitchell. 2. Harry Reid: A $1000 gift card from UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Hospital, good for ten free electroshock therapy treatments, to be administered by the Koch brothers. 3. Nancy... Fri, 19 Dec 2014 11:16:30 -0600 WHITE PRIVILEDGE--A Dangerous Theory African slaves were first brought to the colonies in the 1600's, so why are American whites in the 21st century being held responsible for the actions of ancestors four hundred years ago? Our nation, unlike any other country in the world, has made extensive progress in correcting the "racial sins" of years gone by, yet in 2014; there are still individuals and race activists that refuse to release their grip on America's past. I'm not too proud to admit my cultural ignorance and naiveté,... Sat, 13 Dec 2014 19:45:47 -0600 The "FABRICATED CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT" of 2014 The year 2014 may well be remembered as the year that a selected few individuals were able to launch a "fabricated civil rights movement" which has divided a nation, and could possibly ignite future marches and civil disobedience. Our first African-American President, Barack Obama, along with our first African-American Attorney General, Eric Holder, have been methodically sowing the seeds of voter suppression, along with immigration and racial inequality, but the events in Ferguson,... Sun, 07 Dec 2014 23:16:33 -0600 PREDICTION: Race Baited Riots Return to a "A NATION of COWARDS" Civil disobedience in Ferguson and St. Louis, Missouri, is as predictable as a sunrise and a sunset, it's just a matter of the scale of the violence. The scab covering America's civil rights past, which had been slowly healing for the past fifty years, has now been ripped off, and Americans are being dragged back to the 1960's. For the past six years we've been hearing a constant racial drumbeat, not just from race baiters and activists, but even from prominent Democrats like... Sun, 23 Nov 2014 12:18:48 -0600 THE EVOLUTION of AMERICA'S 1ST DICTATOR--In Obama's Own Words 03/31/08: Presidential candidate Barack Obama speaking at a town hall event in Pennsylvania: "I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that's what I intend to reverse when I'm president of the United States of America." 03/28/11: President Obama speaking on Univision, an American Spanish language... Sun, 16 Nov 2014 17:52:10 -0600 "Stupidity of American Voters" on the Docket at U.S. Supreme Court The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), is one of the most contemptuous, partisan laws to come out of Congress in the past century. The "centerpiece of President Obama's administration" was never read in full by any of the Democrat legislators that pushed it across the finish line, and was sold to the American people through an array of false premises. The most outrageous mistruth came from President Obama himself. It was Politifact's 2013 "Lie of the Year," "If you like your health care plan,... Tue, 11 Nov 2014 10:17:58 -0600
