America in Crisis: When a Culture Lacks Character, What is it?

By Rich Kozlovich 

If the founding fathers could only see us now! The imposition of big government tyranny into American lives would have shocked and outraged them, especially John Adams the architect of the Constitution.  below are some articles I think outline many of these outrages.

What the Blue-State Left-Coasters Don't Understand about Culture - May 21, 2022 By Jeremy Egerer -

Yesterday, I met a man from Mumbai.  He happened to mention that he was new to Idaho, so I asked how new, and it turned out he'd been here for only a month and a half.  He spoke good English, and I learned he'd gone to an English-speaking school, which made his getting a job here in Idaho possible.

I asked him what he thought about Boise, and he said he loved it here better than Mumbai.  People don't care about you in a big city, he said.  Whether you live or die makes no difference to them.  But here in a little-big city like Boise, he said he could stand outside a store with a large purchase, and people would ask if he needed help.  He'd already done this the day before and been asked by eight people.  He'd never seen anything like it in his life.

His wife and children had the same impression and were generally impressed by how healthy the culture was here.  Not the same ugly bustle of a New York City or a Philadelphia, the facelessness of the crowds, the concern for you and yours and yours only, but a real humanity that sees a neighbor as a neighbor and asks him if he needs anything......

Big cities in blue counties are also known for people sleeping and defecating on the streets, for drugs and all kinds of crime, and for the racial divide being so bad that whole blocks get burned down when criminals get shot...............To Read More.....

Were there ‘right-wing’ riots when Tucker Carlson called for a colorblind meritocracy? D. Parker If we’re supposedly racist, then why aren’t we taking issue with Tucker Carlson advocating for a colorblind meritocracy and echoing the words of Martin Luther King? If we’re not doing that then leftists are liars....

A courageous archbishop finally takes on Nancy PelosiMay 21, 2022 By Andrea WidburgGiven the clash between the politics she pushes and the Catholic values in which she wraps herself, this has been a long time coming. .......Nancy Pelosi has loudly and proudly boasted about for decades: Her absolute support for abortion and her staunch Catholicism. Of course, those two things are inconsistent because, even under the progressive Pope Francis, abortion remains anathema to the Church. With that in mind, it’s good news that, on Friday, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone had the courage to announce that, until Pelosi repudiates her support for abortion, she should not be admitted to Holy Communion in her home base of San Francisco nor should she present herself to receive the Eucharist........... 
 
Automobile ‘kill switch’ law to spy on and control Americans May 21, 2022 - Biden recently signed a law mandating that all new vehicles sold after 2026 must be equipped with electronic “kill switches” that could be used by government officials—or hackers—to seize control of one’s car without permission or oversight...........
 
New York – the state in which COVID restrictions will never die May 21, 2022 - After all that we Americans have been through because of the CCP Flu pandemic, it may seem that the worst of the COVID restrictions and mandates is finally over. Those who were fortunate enough to live in Red/Republican states during those evil times never had to deal with the full weight of a tyrannical governor’s boot on their necks. Sadly, for those of us who reside in Demo-Marxist enclaves such as New York, our so-called “freedom” is turning out to be an illusion. During the inglorious reign of King Cuomo, New Yorkers were subjected to some of the harshest restrictions and mandates in the USA. Cuomo’s successor, the equally loathsome Kathy Hochul, has proven to be no bargain, as she’s shown herself to be even more enthusiastic about imposing whatever restrictions she can, the Constitution be damned............
 
Extremist tactics – the left’s predictable playbook May 21, 2022Elon Musk was 100% correct when he characterized the tactics used against him as a "standard (despicable) playbook." .........He’s 100% right, the left does have a tried and true playbook when it comes to going after their opposition.  In my new book, The Democratic Party Playbook, I identified the most common nefarious approaches that the Left utilizes when going after their opposition. The public needs to know how to spot them when they are being employed and see them for what they are. The radical Progressives employ these without remorse or care for the damage they inflict.  Here’s the short version: .........
 
Maybe the Secretary should talk to the people in the Interior - May 21, 2022 By Silvio Canto, Jr. - The Biden cabinet is made up of very interesting people. Let's check out Secretary of Interior Deb Haaland, regarding her visit to the U.S. Senate.  First, she shows no emotion about rising gasoline prices.  One would think that she would have prepared for such an obvious question.  In other words, I would have expected her to say 1,000 times that she feels the pain at the pump.  No, she responded with aloof answers about a "balanced approach" whatever that means.  I would think that most Americans would love an approach that tilts a bit in their direction, i.e. a drop in gas prices.  Second, she was confused when asked about the environmental impact of drilling there rather than here:

“Is it more environmentally friendly to develop and produce oil and gas” in the U.S. or in foreign countries, like Venezuela?  Biden Interior Secretary: “I’m not an economist”

 Thank God that she was not asked to define "woman.".......  

Yet another worm is turning, this time in the skateboarding world, By Andrea Widburg - A man who calls himself “Lillian Gallagher” was allowed to compete as a woman in the Red Bull Cornerstone Contest, which is a skateboarding contest with big cash prizes. When he won, he got the top step on the podium and $5,000. The woman who actually won the contest was told she came in second and received only $2,750. Outraged by the unfairness of being forced to compete against a mentally ill cheater, she protested the decision to let a man compete, only to be stonewalled. So now, bravely, she’s speaking out.........  

At Least 135 Educators Charged with Child Sex Crimes in 2022 Alone - By Eric Lendrum - In less than five months, at least 135 teachers, teachers’ aides, and other school employees across the country have been arrested and charged with various child sex crimes.  As reported by Fox News, the total of 135 does not account for arrests that haven’t been publicized, meaning the final total for the year 2022 thus far may be even higher. The 135 arrests have taken place across 41 states between January 1st and May 13th, averaging to about one arrest per day. Most of the suspects are men. At least 102 of the charges involved, 76 percent overall, involved crimes against students. Of the 135 suspects, 117 were teachers, 11 were aides, and 7 were substitute teachers..........

Australian Transgender Surfer Crushes the Competition in Open Women’s Divisions - By Debra Heine - A transgender surfer in Western Australia has become the first person in history to win both the men’s and women’s divisions of the sport.  This month, 43-year-old Sasha Jane Lowerson crushed the competition in the Open Women’s and Open Logger divisions at the West Coast Suspensions Longboard and Logger State Championships, as well as a number of state titles............

How many legs does a dog have? May 21, 2022 - We are seeing increasing episodes of delusional people, some of whom are in powerful positions, calling good evil and calling evil good.  George W. Julian was a Free-Soil Party congressman during Abraham Lincoln’s terms as president. According to Julian, during a discussion about issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln posed a particular riddle on how many legs a dog has (Lincoln actually said “calf,” but it has come down to us as “dog”):

Abraham Lincoln faced with some thorny issue that could be settled by a twist of language, or a slight abuse of power, asks his questioner how many legs would a dog have, if we called the dog’s tail, a leg. “Five,” the questioner responds confident in his mathematical ability to do simple addition.

“No,” Lincoln says. “Calling a dog’s tail a leg, doesn’t make it a leg.”

The particulars of this story apply to today’s society and the world in which we live.  Things and persons are what they are.  A tree is a tree.  You can call it a bush as often as you wish, but it is still a tree.  A fact is a fact.  You can wish it were something else, but it is still a fact.  Where am I going with this, you might ask?  Let me answer that for you.  Today, we are witnessing all too many delusional people who seem to think that if you call a man a woman, that makes him  a woman (or vice versa).  That just is not true.  I will agree that a person of either sex can dress and look like the opposite sex if they wish, but that person is simply a transvestite, since there is no way any individual can alter the sex chromosomes with which he is born................
