Bernie Sanders Drops Out of The Primary Clearing the Way For Joe Biden
Apr 09 2020 9 mins
Podcast 146 | Bernie Sanders Drops OutAll of the Socialists have gone crazy on Twitter, Facebook, and all the other social media platforms. Crying and wailing because of their hero, they’re Superman, Bernie Sanders has dropped out of the primary. Sanders dropping out, I guess, really means that he has now “felt the Bern.” And because of Sanders dropping out, it has now cleared the way for Joe Biden to be the presumptive nominee for the Democrat Party. Podcast 146 will discuss the effects of Bernie Sanders drops out of The Democrat Party Primary and how this is clearing the way for Joe Biden.Podcast 146 IntroductionBernie Sanders dropping out of the Democrat primary and now leads the way for Joe Biden to face off with Donald Trump. And thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks. The Pontificator of Common Sense and your Coffee Connoisseur. Coming to you once again from Front Porch Politics Podcast. This podcast will stray away from all of the talk with the media is giving you, which is Coronavirus. And with COVID-19, we are starting to see those numbers hit their pinnacle. Hopefully, we’ll see that start to decline in the coming days. That being said today, a huge announcement took place. Let me just make this clear. Number one, if you invest in the market. If you are someone who has a 401(k), Roth IRA, 403 B, or you just individually invest with Robinhood. You have reason to celebrate today. See, the market was doing pretty well this morning, and then it skyrocketed. After a huge announcement came from Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders Drops OutSanders announced that he was dropping out of the presidential primary race against Joe Biden for the Democrat Party. Now there’s no surprise that the market’s just skyrocketed after this took place. The market does not like any type of Socialism. Capitalism is what drives our market. Capitalism, free industry, and private-owned business is what makes America the great economic powerhouse in the world. So when the extreme socialist/communist Bernie Sanders decided to drop out of the race, the market responded with gleeful joy. And of course, stock prices started going back up now. Friends, were not back to the point that we were before the Coronavirus pandemic took place. And we all know this. However, it is very important to note that the hardline Socialist has had to concede once again. Now I know what many of you are thinking. He was paid off. Well, there’s probably a good chance of that. If he wasn’t paid off, Sanders is an older man. And he may serve in some type of Cabinet position for Biden. Reasons Bernie Sanders Dropped OutThere is no telling what kind of backdoor deals have been struck to make sure that Biden would be the clear front runner. And Bernie would just step aside.I did find it interesting, and I have to laugh about this because AOC has been lamenting and crying all over Twitter. Crying all day long about how her hero and her champion ha...
98% Recover from Coronavirus: The Media is Not Telling The Whole Story
Apr 08 2020 9 mins
Podcast 145 | 98% Recover From CoronavirusDo you know the recovery rate of those who get Coronavirus? You may actually be surprised to know that it’s much higher than what anyone in the media is telling us. To hear the media tell the side of the story, the country needs to be shut down, and we’ve all got to just stay locked inside of our houses while they kill the economy. But the facts show a different story. 98% recover from Coronavirus. The media is not telling you this story at all. Podcast 145 will discuss why the media is not telling the whole story about COVID-19 when the facts state that 98% recover from Coronavirus.Podcast 145: IntroductionThank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks the Pontificator of Common Sense and your Coffee Connoisseur. Coming to you once again from Front Porch Politics Podcast. Thank you, my front porch family, for your support. And for those of you who have been able to listen and educate yourself. We are spreading the gospel of conservatism across the United States and, quite frankly, parts of the world. Now, in the opening of this podcast, I ask you a question. How many of you knew how many people had recovered from Coronavirus? Because the way the media tells it, there’s just body bags piled up everywhere, all over many cities. Now, look, I’m not trying to downplay the severity of this virus. Don’t get me wrong. I have been very outspoken about how you need to wash your hands, keep yourself safe, and social distance. Do the things that are required and do the things that are being asked by our CDC and the President. I also want to make it clear that if I were to get the virus, I would ask for them to give me Hydroxychloroquine. I would ask also for a Z-pack. And if I couldn’t do it with a Z Pak because I do have a little bit of high blood pressure, then give it to me with his Zink.Survival Rate with HydroxychloroquineWhat we’re seeing is this drug is working with people who have been made sick. People who are on death’s door have been better in a few days, actually, just by taking this medicine. But yet this is all being downplayed. See, my friends, I do believe there’s something more sinister afoot. Now again, if you are not a conservative, you’re probably going to get pissed off by what I’m about to say. And if you do, that’s OK. You don’t have to listen. But I do think there is a political aspect, and I think the media is partly to blame with what’s going on in our country. So I feel like parts of the media. Not all, but parts of the media, and parts of a political party, have absolutely decided they hate our country. They hate our prosperity. They hate everything about what America stands for. So in hating our country, they have now decided they have to take down a president who had a great economy under him. The only way they know that can beat him is through a bad economy They know this. So how did they kill the economy? America has a bad virus that comes along and we shutdown our society.
Illegals Shouldn’t Get Stimulus Money, Despite What AOC & Socialist Think
Apr 07 2020 9 mins
Podcast 144 | Illegals Shouldn’t Get Stimulus MoneyLet me ask you a question. Do you think that the illegals should receive any of the stimulus money? You as a tax-paying, hard-working American? Right now you’re trying to make ends meet. Do you think people who have already broken our law by coming into our country, should they get part of your tax money even though most of them haven’t contributed anything to our tax system? Well, I would probably be on the same side as you and saying. No, they should not. However, AOC and her Socialist buddies are demanding that part of that money go to illegals. Podcast 144 will discuss why illegals in our country should not get stimulus money, despite demands that AOC wants illegals to get the money.Podcast 144 IntroductionAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison. for that warm introduction. I am David L. Marks, the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. Coming to you again from Front Porch Politics Podcast. Look, it doesn’t matter if you’re red or a blue or you’re an independent and you’re in the middle. You are doing the best you can to make the best of the resources that you have. We all want to get through the Coronavirus situation as fast as possible. We want to get the American engine running again. And in doing so, we want to do it in a way that causes the least amount of damage to our capitalistic society as we can. We want people to get better. I do not understand why the media just keeps hounding and pushing against Hydroxychloroquine. I feel like that is the treatment we should be exploring. Even more, I feel like that’s something we will do in the future Now that’s not saying that we just put everything aside. That’s what medicine is about. Sometimes we have to test different things. The Coronavirus Stimulus BillBut in getting you back to a normal pace of life, or at least trying to make life as normal as possible, Congress came together in past a massive $2 trillion stimulus bill. When this took place, as most of you know, AOC went on this big arm flailing rant on the House floor. She ranted about how this was shameful and how she felt like it was a corporate bailout. And she did the grandstanding that she typically does. But it’s not just the grandstanding she did on the House floor. It is the communication that she has spewed like vomit out of her intellectual mouth, since that has taken place. And let me give you an example. AOC put out a tweet that said, and this is the quote. “To clarify $1200 checks are only,” and she wrote only in all caps, “going to someone with Social Security numbers.” Oh, you don’t say AOC. You mean people actually have to provide documentation that they are American citizens. They are the only ones getting the money coming from the American government. I mean, this tells you the kind of representation they have in New York,
Money Monday #3 | It is Time to Get Your Budget Started or Back on Track
Apr 06 2020 9 mins
There’s no doubt that many of us have found herself in a new situation. Now that we have had this whole Coronavirus predicament, many of you are working from home. And some of you may not be working at all. For those of you who are not, we’re praying for you, and we hope that everything gets better in time. And, of course, we want to get this economic engine known as America’s capitalism back up and running. But until we do, I want to remind you it is very important to do the things you typically do. Money Monday #3 will discuss why it is time to get your budget started or back on track. And you can get free budget help in our virtual class.Money Monday #3Thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David L. Marks, the Pontificator of Common Sense and your coffee connoisseur. I hope that you’re still doing the daily routines that you typically do. That being said, I wanted to give you a very special opportunity right now. Because we want you to make sure that you’re maintaining the daily things that you’ve been doing the whole time. Even though the country is shut down, even though you may find yourself working from home, or some of you may not find yourself working at all. And as I said in the opening, for those of you who are not working, we are praying for you, and we’re glad that there’s assistance coming your way. But the daily routines that we do in the week, maybe some may do it even monthly, is to keep a monthly budget of your expenses. You know, I would not be honest with you if I didn’t tell you that living on the budget is one of the biggest financial priorities I believe that we have. If you’re not currently on a budget, and you are college-age kids or a family. It could even be if you’re retired right now. A Budget is NecessaryA budget is very necessary for you. So maintaining a budget and living by that budget is very important. I saw a post today where it had a picture of Dave Ramsey, and I thought this was quite humorous. I will share it with you. The picture stated that it didn’t seem so crazy of this person, being Dave Ramsey, who advised us to have a six-month income in savings in case of an emergency. Well, some of you have found yourself in that emergency right now. Granted the government has given stimulus money and they’re trying to help ease that burden of that hard punch that you’re taking financially right now. But at the same time, it is important that we be responsible for ourselves. I’m all about personal responsibility. That being said, a monthly budget helps you stay on track with your expenses. It keeps you from just going hog wild in a time like this when you want to buy tons of supplies. But at the same time, it also gives you a buffer. If you do want to stockpile just a little bit. It allows you to do so.Keep Investing Your MoneyI want you to keep putting money in the market. I know what you’re thinking. The market’s doing terrible, and it’s going to be a while before we see some strong gains. But when this economic engine cranks back up and when it’s it’s primed, I feel like people are so ready to go back to work. But when this economic engine cranks back up and it gets running again, I feel like that you’re gonna be thankful that you did put some money in the market. So be sure that you do so.
Faith Friday #3: Starting This Sunday This Upcoming Week is Holy Week
Apr 03 2020 10 mins
Faith Friday #3 | Holy WeekFaith Friday #3 will discuss how Jesus enters into Jerusalem Sunday, also known as Palm Sunday, to start the week ahead of Holy Week. Hello, everyone and welcome once again to Faith Friday’s on Front Porch Politics Podcast. In all the chaos that we have in our world right now, it seems like that everything is just in such a mess, and it seems like that no one knows what they’re supposed to do. I do want to remind you of something. I want you to have faith, faith in the simple fact that no matter how chaotic our world is, sometimes that God is still in control.Faith Friday #3 IntroductionI’ve tried to take time each time that I wash my hands, and I want to encourage you to do the same, that I say the Lord’s prayer. And I try to repeat that to myself, and sometimes verbally out loud, as I’m washing my hands. Not only do I feel like this grows, my spirit, it also is a good way for me to remember the time that I’m supposed to be washing my hands. But this next upcoming week is very special to Christianity. See what we’re gonna cover in today’s Faith Friday number three is that we need to remember that this next week starting Sunday, is which is also known this Palm Sunday. It’s Holy Week for all Christians, and you may be asking yourself, Why would that be the topic for the podcast? Well, that’s a great question. See, sometimes we lose perspective in life on what is taking place in our world. We get busy with our life, whether it be our family or our job, or whatever. A Special Week for ChristiansBut this next upcoming week to all Christians is very sacred and very special. No, I’m not saying that it has any magical powers, as some people might think that Christians believe, but is the remembrance of what this next week is going to hold. So each day as you celebrate this with your family, or to yourself, is between you and your savior. I want you to remember the events that took place. And next Friday’s Faith Friday will actually consist of something very special. I’m looking so forward to next Friday’s Faith Friday because it’s something very sacred to me. I want to share something personal with you. Back when I was teaching in the classroom every year at Easter, the Friday before, we also know this as Good Friday. I would take the time to read that Scripture to my students in each class that I taught. And I’m sure that there’s a lot of people who may have felt like that was the separation of church and state violation. Maybe it was, but this is what I felt led to do. You know, I never had a parent complain about that, and I’m very thankful. Faith Friday #3: Sharing the FaithI work in Alabama, so you’re probably not surprised that I didn’t have any complaints And I’m not saying that you could do that everywhere in our country. But I felt like I always had the freedom and liberty to do so. That being said, this upcoming week is so special because of the events that are going to transpire. Now I know that I seem like I’m rambling on, but I want you to take time each day. And look, you have no excuse, and I’m putting myself at the top of this list. No excuse not to take time each day to remember what was building up and what Friday is going to be all about.So please make sure that you subscribe to the podcast to make sure that you join us next Friday for a very special podcast.
Surveillance of Americans: Will the Coronavirus Lead to a Loss of Privacy?
Apr 02 2020 9 mins
Podcast 141 | Surveillance of AmericansThere is not one person that would argue that we no longer have privacy. Cell phones have taken away any privacy that we may have, along with internet technologies. Even our webcams are at risk. And we’re constantly told that we need a VPN to protect us. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, both always track us. And Google tracks everything that you do. That being said, there’s a new threat to your privacy. The Coronavirus has opened up the floodgate for new recommended technologies that would surveil you. Podcast 141 will discuss how the Coronavirus impact on America could lead to the recommended surveillance of Americans and a loss of privacy.Podcast 141 IntroductionThank you once again, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks. The pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. Coming to you once again from Front Porch Politics Podcast. Thank you to those of you who shared yesterday’s podcast, where we discussed where AOC is actually getting her money. She has been blowing up Twitter all day long. Talking about how these corporate greedy people are out just trying to oppress people and not give them insurance. Well, every time that she did that, I would go in and post a link to our podcast. We hope that you learned something from that podcast. We also hope that you see where the socialist darlings are, not who they say they are. They’re big hypocrites. We will be covering Bernie Sanders on that sometime soon. But that’s not for today. See, today I want to discuss something about your life here at the front porch. I believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I also believe that God gave us those until unalienable rights. And that our founding fathers recognize God giving us those rights. Surveillance of Americans and PrivacyLiberty is a right that we all take for granted sometimes. And we all know that liberty is not without sacrifice. However, in the world that we live in today, our founding fathers could have never imagined this world. Our founding fathers, while wanting to establish this country was government at the federal level and the power with smaller and state governments. And we ruled by a Constitution, which actually told the government what they could and could not do. And it gave liberty to the everyday citizen. Well, that’s a different world that we live in in 2020. And I want you to take a deep breath and think about something for just a moment. You may feel like that we’re in dire times. And you feel like the economy is in bad shape and look, it’s gonna take us a while to overcome this. And we do have people like Nancy Pelosi who is just lying every day. She went on CNN today and went on a big tirade and lying. I started to cover that in a podcast. But I felt like there other pressing matters that you need to know again. We want to educate you on this podcast. Surveillance of Americans and the MediaThis is something that you may not always hear on some of the mainstream media outlets that you may listen to. That being said,
Who is Funding Ocasio-Cortez? 99.04% of AOC’s Money is Out-of-District
Apr 01 2020 9 mins
Podcast 140 | Who is funding Ocasio-Cortez?Podcast 140 will educate you on who is funding Ocasio-Cortez? And how 99.04% of Ocasio-Cortez money is from corporations and out-of-districtPodcast 140 Introduction“Then what did the Senate majority fight for? One of the largest corporate bailouts with us. Few strings as possible in American history. Shameful. The greed,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.Guess who is also very greedy? That would be one AOC who has given that arm-flailing speech. So you were going to find out who is funding AOC While everybody else is focusing on Coronavirus, I want to educate you. Podcast 140 will educate you on who is funding Ocasio-Cortez. And how 99.4% of Ocasio-Cortez’s money is from corporations and from out of district donors.Ocasio-Cortez is GreedyAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks. The pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. Coming to you again from Front Porch Politics Podcast. Hey, folks, we’ve just done a fresh update on our website. We want you to go check it out at davidlmarks.com. Make sure that you subscribe and be sure that you let us know what you think. And you can see all the content there. Now I know that we’ve spent a lot of time going over Coronavirus, and we’ve talked about this so much. But let’s not lose focus here of what’s coming up in November. To me what this is really all about. There’s a lot of people who say that the virus has nothing to do with politics. I would have to disagree with you on that. But you know, we all are entitled to our opinions. That being said, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, when they were debating the $2 trillion stimulus plan on the House floor was giving this arm flailing speech. Scolding from Ocasio-CortezWhere she was just flailing her arms everywhere and talking about how that the senators, Republican Senators more specifically, were just going after corporate greed. And how there were people dying in hospitals and in her district. She hasn’t been to her district very often since she has been elected. Just keep that in mind. She’s been jet setting all over the place with Bernie Sanders. But also she’s been raising money and she hasn’t been raising money in her district. So far as of the end of December. So this is just stopping on December 31st, 2019. We’re not including what she has gathered so far as she’s been out traveling with Bernie. She had raised $4,846,237. Now of the money that she has raised, and here’s something that’s just gonna blow your mind. $757,684 was in-state money for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That’s why we’re covering this in podcasts 140. Because I want you to know who is funding Ocasio-Cortez. That’s the question I want you to ask. Out-of-State money is $4,088,553. Who is Funding Ocasio-Cortez?So you can see the 84%, a little over 84%, of her money come from out-of-state donors. More specifically, let’s break it down to her district. Because she wants to tell you how that people in her district are suffering an...

Let’s not just try to be jerks all the time. That being said, let’s get on to the podcast. Hydroxychloroquine is used to prevent or treat malaria infections. Most of you know this is caused by mosquito bites. And throughout the world’s history, we’ve had different kinds of diseases that would come into man and women’s bodies that would kill us off. It would make us very sick unto death. So what you have had developed it several companies who would step up to the plate, and they would develop these innovative new drugs. Drugs that would help fight off disease. One of the diseases, in particular, was malaria. Malaria was a parasitic disease. A person would be bitten by a mosquito. Malaria would then develop in that person’s body because of the mosquito bite. And we developed the drug. Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine would actually treat and prevent the death of those who had been bitten by mosquitoes. Now,
Money Monday #2: Now is the Time to Invest in the Market if You Have Not
Mar 30 2020 9 mins
Money Monday #2As most of you know, thanks to the Coronavirus, our markets have not done so well since the start of the year. In the last month, there have been friends of mine who have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and this would cause you to worry. You would think, Well, I don’t want to invest in the market. That’s a bad idea. But see, today’s Money Monday is going to discuss with you why now is the perfect time to invest in the market if you have not done so and I know what you’re thinking. But I’m a little worried about this. Well, here’s my advice. Take your money and invest in the market for your future. Money Monday #2 discusses why right now is the perfect market & time to start investing in Roth IRA or Traditional IRAs for your future.Money Monday #2 IntroductionAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks, the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. I’m actually sitting here right now, even though it is like 80 degrees outside, and I’m enjoying a nice cup of coffee. Because, hey, that’s what I do. I’m the coffee connoisseur. So if you’ve heard the introduction to today’s podcast, you know that money is always our topic on Mondays. And please, if you’re out there, let me do a shameless plug here and tell you that we want you to go to podcast.davidlmarks.com to subscribe. We do a Faith Friday. We also have Money Mondays and then we cover everything else throughout the week. So be sure that you go to podcast.davidlmarks.com and subscribe. Now today’s money Monday’s a little bit different. Last week we were talking about the Coronavirus bill, which passed. It was a $2 trillion bill, and now that it has passed, we’ve seen that all of the socialist in our country are asking for more and more money. So instead of talking about the political side of money per se, I actually wanted to do something different with you today. Teaching About Money From A Teacher’s HeartI’m a teacher at heart. And being a teacher at heart you always want to share good, knowledgeable information. And you want to educate people. That’s what we do. We educate people in our classrooms and in our offices. See, some of you are still getting paid. Now, the relief money that sent out, of course, is going to help those who are out of work. And I’m glad they’re doing that. The small business loans could be forgiven. And that’s good, too. Because a lot of small businesses need the help. If you’re a small business owner, you know you’re hurting right now, and we’re praying for you. And we’re thinking about you guys every day. But if you’re still getting paid in your job and you’re still working, I want to give you a little bit of advice. And you know, you can think this is bad advice if you want to. But it’s my advice to you. I would like to see you invest part of your money. Now you may need it. You may need every penny of it to pay your rent, to pay your mortgage, to pay your light bill, whatever it may be. But I would like for you to take some of that money and actually invest tha...
Faith Friday #2: How to Deal with Anxiety During Uncertain Times in Life
Mar 27 2020 10 mins
Faith Friday #2 | How to Deal with AnxietyHello, everyone. And welcome to Faith Friday on Front Porch Politics Podcast. And a lot of you may be experiencing something new right now, along with many others across our great country. You may be dealing with anxiety. Anxiety because you can’t go do the regular things you’re used to doing. You can’t just go to the store. You may even have your children at home, and they may be driving you crazy. But faith is that unseen thing. That’s part of our life that will keep us from losing a good balance in life. So as we take this time together today, we’re going to study from the Book of Matthew. Faith Friday #2 will discuss how to deal with anxiety during uncertain times in life with a lesson from the book of Matthew, the 6th chapter.Faith Friday #2 IntroductionWe’re going to study in the sixth chapter. And inside the sixth chapter of the Book of Matthew, we’re gonna learn from Jesus himself. How that we actually deal with the anxiety that we have in our life, many of you right now. But if you are stuck at home with your children, and they may be driving you crazy. You may be worried about a spouse that is working in the medical field, such as a nurse or a doctor, whatever it may be. Or you may have a spouse who is driving a truck, having to haul all kinds of essential needed items to everyone else in our country. And you’re worried about who they come in contact with during this time. Your elderly parents may be of concern of yours. No matter what it may be. I want you to remember something. I want you to take the time to slow down, stop whatever you’re doing and say a short prayer. Now, I know you may think, Well, that’s not gonna do me any good. But I promise you that praying makes a difference, and not just in how you deal with your anxiety. But if you don’t believe me in something, please take this to heart, that there is no doubt a creator that made us all. And he is is in control. And we’re gonna use today’s faith Friday from Matthew to try to explain to you how we have faith that everything’s gonna be okay no matter what. Matthew 25:6 Lesson on AnxietyIn the 25th verse of the sixth chapter of Matthew, it says, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you, by taking thought, can add one cubit to his stature? And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow, they told not Neither do they spin. And yet I say unto you that even Solomon, in all of his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Jesus is speaking to a very anxious crowd here. Now I’m sure several of the people in the crowd were anxious for several different reasons. What happened when Jesus was teaching? Well,
Blood Plasma in Patients Who Recovered from Covid-19 May Be the Cure
Mar 26 2020 9 mins
Blood Plasma in Patients | Podcast 136The Senate has finally passed the $2 trillion Coronavirus relief bill that’s going to go out to many Americans, and there are all kinds of information, and we could give you about this bill. But quite honestly, I feel like we’ve talked about this so much. While blood plasma in patients who recovered from Covid-19, also known as Coronavirus, may actually be the cure we’re looking for. So in podcast 136 we’re going to take a medical turn. And we’re going to try to give you good information on how we may have a breakthrough in finding an ally to help fight Coronavirus.Podcast 136 IntroductionAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks, the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. I’m actually sitting here right now, enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee that I ground myself. If you have never tried to ground your own coffee. Let me advise you to do so because it is delicious. Nothing like fresh coffee beans that have been ground. So if you’ve never done that. Let me recommend that you do so. Back to today’s podcast. The Senate has passed the $2 trillion bill, call it the relief bill, whatever you like to say. And there’s gonna be all kind of jargon that’s gonna be packed inside this bill, I know Bernie Sanders threatened to stand up and keep the bill from taking place if he didn’t get some things he wanted. It looks like now the vote did go through at 100 to 0. So the bill has been passed, even outside of all the socialistic garbage that Nancy Pelosi was trying to throw in there. so what about Blood Plasma in Patients?Blood Plasma in Patients Recovered from Covid-19There are some things that I disagree with inside the bill. For example, there’s $25 million, I believe, that is going to be given to the D. C. Kennedy Center of Fine Arts. There’s also money that’s tied to going to things like PBS and NPR. National Public Radio that we’re already paying for. But that is a topic for another day. Because today I want to give you good medical information. I know a lot of people have heard of different remedies, different cures, different medicines that they’re trying to find to fight Coronavirus. And I want you to understand this first. While I am a pontificator of common sense and a coffee connoisseur. I’m not a doctor. So just keep this in mind that when I try to give you this information. you’re getting a nonmedical point of view. But I just felt like it would be good for you to know that the information I would like to present. But if any of you have ever been snakebitten, you know that they will give you an anti-venom after you have been bitten by the toxic or poisonous snake. This is done, of course, to try to save your life. If you’re bitten by a rattlesnake or by a copperhead in our area, it could be very, very dangerous and deadly. Anti-venom Made From Antibodies
Senate Coronavirus Relief Bill Agreement Reached After Long Negotiations
Mar 25 2020 9 mins
Senate Coronavirus Relief Bill Agreement | Podcast 135After days and days of fighting and keeping everyone on edge and tanking the market than the market has taken a huge jump. It seems that the Senate has finally reached a deal. A deal on the Coronavirus stimulus bill, which by far is the largest ever proposed bill in United States history. And we’re gonna talk about the prostate that this bill will come with as they have finally reached an agreement. Podcast 135 will discuss the Senate Coronavirus relief bill agreement finally being reached after long days and nights of negotiations. But the question remains. Will this bill be enough to save our economy?Podcast 135 IntroductionAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison, for that warm introduction. I am David Marks, the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. Coming to you from Front Porch Politics Podcast. Folks, it is a very late night. I have stayed up just so that you could sleep. To give you the information about a big event. A big historic event in our country. Whether you are pro or con, you can make your own determination. But a deal has finally been reached in the Senate. After fighting and fussing and name-calling and mud-slinging and everything else. These people making a lot of money have finally reached a deal. I understand there’s a lot of pressure here, and I understand that they have a lot of deals they wanted to work out. As most of you know, you’ve probably listened to our previous podcast, where we talked about some of the ridiculous things that Nancy Pelosi had put forth and her bill. I honestly think that was a scare tactic to try to force the Republicans’ hand to try to negotiate. Senate Coronavirus Relief Bill Deal ReachedIt’s one of those things that you asked for a lot to get just a little. So we’ll actually see in time what all the negotiations and the haggling have brought us down to. But with glee, like they had done this huge favor. The senators came out both Schumer and, Mitch McConnell, and they gave us this rousing speech about how the American people can now have hope. Now here’s what I expect. The markets were up today. I expect there’ll be up tomorrow. Well, actually, it is tomorrow today because it is so late. But the market will be up again. It took its largest gain on Tuesday, its largest one day gain ever in history. And that’s what I anticipate will happen. Also combined with that President Trump did a virtual, if I guess that’s a good way to say it, townhall today. And in that virtual townhall, he discussed how he wants to get the economy moving again. I anticipate there will be some people who can go back to work, probably right after Easter. I would anticipate there will be some people who do go back to work at that time. Actually working in education. I expect us to go back at that time. Americans Will Soon Go Back to Work and SchoolSo, Mom and Dad, if you are tired of trying to teach your children what they need to know,
Democrat Coronavirus Stimulus Bill is a Backdoor to Socialism in America
Mar 24 2020 9 mins
Democrat Coronavirus Stimulus Bill | Podcast 134“Democrats won’t let us find hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New deal” that was Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate leader, is discussing. There is a bill that has been proposed by Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi said that the Senate bill proposed, that would have been voted on yesterday or last night, puts corporations first, not workers and families. All Democrats in the Senate voted against even letting the bill be brought to the floor of the Senate. Because of this, they have cost the American people about $3000 so far. Podcast 134 will discuss Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat Coronavirus Stimulus bill and how it is a backdoor to Big Government Socialism in America. Podcast 134 IntroductionAnd thank you, Dr. Harrison, For that warm introduction. I am David Marks, the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. Coming to you from front porch politics podcast. Wow, what a crazy day it has been. You know, if you listen to our Market Monday And I see many of you did and I thank you for that. You have learned that what we thought what happened is exactly what happened. The market did not do so well today, and it is all because of a bill that did not pass last night in the Senate. The Senate had put forth a bill that had already gone through the House. The bill that would give the American families about $3000 to put in their pocket. It was $1200 per person making under $75,000 a year and $500 per child, which is about $3000 for a family of four. This would be monies they could use to get by until everything comes back to normal. But all, not one, not two, but all of the Senate Democrats voted against this bill. They would. They didn’t even vote for the bill itself, but to be brought to the floor of the Senate to be debated in, then voted on. Democrats in the Senate Vote against AmericansEvery one of them voted against this bill. Now I know what most of you are thinking is we just want to get through this, and I want to get past it, too. There’s no doubt, but many of you have seen what it has done to the market and what we talked about yesterday. Ah, if you listen to the money Monday, Ah, podcast that we have. So let’s talk about this bill that has been proposed by Nancy Pelosi for just a second. Every Senate Democrat voted against even bringing this bill to the floor. So they didn’t even vote for the bill. They just voted against bringing it to the floor. So there you go. Thanks, Doug Jones and Alabama. We really appreciate that. But Nancy Pelosi has now drafted her own 1,400-page bill. She must be a really good typer to do that. The bill proposed by Pelosi additionally seeks to eliminate debt held by the U. S. Postal Service. So right off the top, Nancy Pelosi wants to eliminate all of the debt from the Postal Service.
Money Mondays #1 Coronavirus Stimulus Bill Voted Against by Democrats
Mar 23 2020 9 mins
Money Monday #1 Coronavirus Stimulus BillThe United States Senate has voted against a $1.4 trillion stimulus bill that has created for those who bring affected whether it be a business or individual or corporation by the Coronavirus. Now we know that many businesses have been shut down due to the virus and government mandates. But we want to know is, Why did the Democrats vote against this bill and cause it to fail in the Senate? Yes, you heard me right. The Democrats voted against this bill. Money Monday #1 will discuss Coronavirus stimulus bill failed and was voted against by the Democrats in the Senate and how it will affect the markets.Money Monday #1 CoronavirusThank you, Dr. Harrison, and everyone out there. Thank you for tuning into another front porch. Politics Podcast. Today is the inaugural episode of Money Mondays, a podcast given to your own Monday, where we will discuss certain topics such as finances and your money. Now the reason, while this is going to be the inaugural episode, is because even though we’ve touched on some money topics before. We’re actually going to give Monday that dedicate that day of Monday to a topic of talking about finances. Maybe now, all of you, right now, your problem. Like I am, I am self quarantined inside my office. I’m making sure that my wife is at least six feet away, and our dog is in my recliner. So everyone is safe here in the Marks household. And I say that with a little sarcasm. We got out today and enjoyed a beautiful day with my sister in law and nephew, and we walked. And it was just a beautiful day here in Alabama, where I live now, going back to what the introduction gave you. Money Monday # 1 Coronavirus Stimulus BillAs most of you may or may not know, the face three stimulus plan that the Senate was voting on today failed to pass. Now, this was the money. It’s about $1.4 trillion that was going to be sent out to corporations, to small business owners, and to you, the American people, to hit me through this time. Now I have a little bit of reservation. I’m just going to be upfront and honest with me about this I feel like that’s what we do on the front porch. We’re honest with each other. I have a little bit of reservation about just sending out checks to everyone in the country for a certain amount of money. Now I do understand there are some people who may be ah in need right now, but I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think that every American citizen should receive that money. And I know they’ve discussed how they’re certain income levels. You have to be yet not to get it. But still, that is very, very to borrow a phrase “loose and liberal” on how they’re distributing this money because not everyone’s going to need it now. Understand this that there are small business owners who you have been impacted. If you are a person like me and you are not a stock mobile, but you do invest in the market, you know that you have been taking huge hits here lately, and I’m going to tell you this bill failing tonight is going to hurt the market tomorrow morning. The Stock MarketSo if you want to look for some short time gain or some short time quick pick up money in the market, my recommendation for you is to buy stocks, which is TVIX. It’s kind of like an inverse stock. When the stock market goes up, it goes down and vice versa. So if you’re looking to make a quick day trade for tomorrow, I would buy this stock. And if you don’t have a platform, then you can always use Robin Hood. I will include a link inside the podcast at David...
Faith Friday #1 | God Has A Purpose of Good Even When Bad Happens
Mar 20 2020 10 mins
Podcast 132 | Faith Friday #1Hello everyone, and welcome to Faith Friday on Front Porch Politics Podcast. So many of us right now find ourselves in a very strange predicament, something that we’ve actually never experienced before. Part of our world is shut down, but I want to remind you of something. As my wife and our riding yesterday with our dog Tucker. We were talking about this exact subject that sometimes bad things happen and it turns out to be a good thing. Faith Friday #1: God Has A Purpose of Good Even When Bad Happens. Slow down in life with a lesson from The Andy Griffith Show about patience.Faith Friday #1 | Part 1Well, as we’re taking the ride, we realize that we’re slowing down in life right now, and we’re taking the time to slow down somewhat. And I have noticed, is I was out working in my yard yesterday and just spending time with my family that all the kids in the neighborhood they were out playing and they were just being kids. This whole Coronavirus deal has slowed our world down, and no doubt we all wanna work, and we want to keep that American engine running. But at the same time, sometimes we have to put everything back into perspective. Sometimes we have to stop in the old saying goes, Smell the roses. Well, God’s given us this opportunity through the virus to do this. No, I’m not saying that God is making people sick, but I am saying that while this opportunity has been presented to us, use it to something good to build a scenario for this. I want to remind you of one of my favorite TV shows that Andy Griffith Show in The Andy Griffith Show. Faith Friday #1 | Part 2 There’s an episode where a man named Malcolm Tucker, who is a very wealthy businessman from Charlotte, he’s coming through on a Sunday and he has car trouble and his car breaks down. Well, Mr. Tucker, of course, being in the hurry that he’s in, he wants someone to fix his car and he wants it fixed. Right now, he actually loses patience with the people of Mayberry and with Andy and Barney and others as he can’t get the car serviced. He even refuses to eat some of Aunt Bee’s cooking and eat Sunday dinner. If I remember correctly, see, that’s the world we have found ourselves in today we are the Malcolm Tuckers of the World. We’re always in a hurry, we’re always on the run. We never take time to just stop and relax and enjoy family time. Which this social distancing Coronavirus situation has caused us to do so. We’re actually having to slow down with our life, and we’re having to put everything back into perspective. Faith Friday #1 | Part 3Mr. Tucker is complaining about how this is the 20th century and he should be able to get anything done now. And this is their space generation, which is they were even past that. Now we’re in the generation of social media and cell phones, but let me give you just a little bit of advice. See, Malcolm Tucker actually began to relax when he got out on the front porch and Andy and Barney were singing an old song called Church in the Wildwood. It made Mr. Tucker put everything into perspective. It made him learn that he was missing those important key things in life. So here’s my advice to you. Take this time and spend it with your family. Turn the cell phone off,
Buying Made in America Should be the Policy For All People in our Country
Mar 20 2020 14 mins
Podcast 131I grew up with a family that taught us “Buy American Made.” Wuhan Coronavirus should be the last primary product we get from China. COVID-19 has exposed our country’s dependency on foreign-made prescription drugs. I believe that it is time that we roll out the Buy Made in America mentality again. The American people would make our necessary medications, and no longer would we find ourselves in this predicament. Podcast 131 will discuss why after the Coronavirus the policy going forward for our country should be Buying Made in America in our country.Buying Made in America Transcripts Part 1Thank you, Dr. Harrison, For that warm introduction, I am David Marks the pontificator of common sense and your coffee connoisseur. You will find yourself in a new format for front porch politics. We’re going to try and you format. We’re gonna try to give you a shorter podcast that covers a single topic in a condensed. If I may use it that way, amount of time so that you can listen to this on your way to work or on your way home from work or whatever it may be, or just to get up in the morning and listen to it. Maybe while you’re in the shower, I don’t know. But we’re going to try to start giving you a daily podcast here on front porch politics, and we’re gonna try to cover events that are taking place each day. Now, this is not because of the Coronavirus. This is something we have been looking at doing for some time. It’s something I felt would be more beneficial because we were rolling out 1 to 2 podcasts week and I was having to pour a lot of time into those podcasts. This gives me the ability to actually give you good content, a good podcast, cover the topics, but not beat the horse to death even when it’s dead. That being said, this podcast is American made. 100% made in America, 100% created, manufactured produced. Everything’s done here in America, and we’re very thankful for that. Buying Made in America Transcripts Part 2So if you’re listening, we want to remind you to Goto podcast out David on march dot com, where you can subscribe and as always, you can follow us on our social media channels to today’s podcast. Now that I’ve given you that introduction and now that I’ve told you everything we’re going to cover, let’s go ahead and cover what is taking place with the Coronavirus. Okay, When I was growing up, I remember this. I don’t know why I have this memory, but I have a memory of being in school. And one of my friends made a comment one time at school, we were probably 4th or 5th grade. About how his dad would only buy American made products. And this is the same sentiment that I remember coming from my family. I remember my family felt the same way. We had pride in American made products. And just to be honest with you, I grew up with my dad talking to me about how things built things, made things manufactured. Whatever it may be, those things made in America seemed to have better quality. I kid you not. I remember a washing machine in my house that I had bought used years ago. That was a whirlpool washing machine.
Socialism and the Coronavirus: Leftist Are Using A Virus For Their Agenda
Mar 14 2020 30 mins
Podcast 130The people of the United States have panicked over a virus. Covid-19, also known as Coronavirus, has played right into the hands of the media and Leftists. American’s have panicked. In doing so, the stock market has tanked, and toilet paper is out in stores. This unnecessary panic is over a virus that has to date killed 40 people. Leftists are now using the virus to push for Socialism. Podcast 130 will discuss the media and leftists use Coronavirus for Socialism, lack of toilet paper, and state-sponsored Abortion in America.The Coronavirus Causes PanicThe United States has the best healthcare in the world. Our excellent country is the place to be if you are going to be sick with any disease. American’s have seen plenty of trials in their time. We have won two World Wars, and overcome a Civil War. God, guns, and guts have helped us to defeat many enemies. But watch out because of a virus from China.Panic ensued when a virus from China first came into the news. Democrats slammed Trump for not doing enough. But after he closed travel from China, Trump was called a racist. Name-calling took place by Ilhan Omar, and AOC so consider the source. Our grandparents would have slapped us back into reality based on what they faced.With 40 Americans now dead from the Coronavirus, the media and leftists see an opportunity. The demand for money from the federal government is the new battle cry. President Trump has asked Congress for legislation. And Nancy Pelosi is happy to put something together to endorse Socialism and murdering babies. So what exactly has Pelosi has placed in the Coronavirus bill?Nancy Pelosi’s Coronovirus Bill Want Abortion MoneyIt may not come to anyone’s surprise that Speaker Pelosi tried to bury taxpayer-funded abortion in the stimulus bill. What is even more astounding, Pelosi had the nerve to stand in front of the press and argue that this bill was about “putting families first.” Nancy Pelosi’s putting families first is killing children. How in the world could someone vote for her?Pelosi attempted to secure a funding stream of up to $1 billion for reimbursing laboratory claims. That provision would establish a precedent under which health claims for all procedures, including abortion, could be compensated with federal funds. Pelosi did this all under the shroud of darkness and rush. When questioned about the Cornovirus bill, Congress members who want more socialist, confirmed Pelosi’s stand.But Pelosi’s tactics were seemingly confirmed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.
Part One Biden’s America: The Joe Biden Plan on Immigration in America
Mar 07 2020 30 mins
Podcast 129The Democrat National Committee put the full weight of their power behind Joe Biden before super Tuesday. And it was a smart move on the DNC’s part. The DNC understands that a Bernie ticket would mean a loss of the House along with Republican control of the Senate and Executive Branch. To save their party, and control of the House, the DNC has now proclaimed Joe Biden as a comeback. A deeper dive into Biden’s plan for America may explain who is actually in control. Podcast 129 will discuss Part One Biden’s America: The Biden Plan on Immigration in America.The Biden Plan on ImmigrationImmigration has been a hot topic in politics in America for some time now. Social Justice Warriors like AOC and Ilhan Omar proclaim America to be a xenophobic country. But keep in mind that America is the only country that allows such open immigration policies. The America that Joe Biden’s campaign has envisioned takes this to a whole new level. Several proposed ideas from Biden’s campaign site will give some of the details.One objective of the new socialist radical Democrat party is to have open borders. Part one of this podcast is to inform you that Joe Biden also proposes this plan. In the first 100 days, Biden promises to “Immediately reverse the Trump Administration’s cruel and senseless policies that separate parents from their children at our border.” The only issue here is that this was not a Trump policy. It is all due to an agreement passed under the watchful eye of then-President Clinton.The Flores Settlement Agreement is a court settlement that sets limits on the length of time and conditions under which children’s incarceration can take place in immigration detention. Due to this agreement, separation from their children and parents takes place after a certain amount of time. Biden blast Trump for calling for an end to this policy. Biden is now attacking Trump for his stand.Reinstating the Flores Settlement AgreementBiden’s call to end President Trump’s policies would reinstate the “kids in cages” mentality. This action may seem hypocritical for all of the SJW in the Socialist Democrat Party. The reversal would only be a beginning to our immigration troubles. Biden would not allow “kids in cages,” so families would not face detention at all. Pandora’s box of child trafficking would explode from this decision.It has become common knowledge in the education world that children are “sold” by their parents for multiple reasons. And children of those here illegally are “sold” often numerous times. Drug and monetary debts are the leading cause. By allowing Biden’s policies to go into effect, America would be giving a rubber stamp on abusing kids.Child Traffickers arrest in North Carolina
The Coronavirus Panic: Is the Panic Just Beginning With Coronavirus?
Feb 29 2020 30 mins
Podcast 128American markets have tanked this last week. There has been roughly $6 trillion wiped out of the world’s economy. All because of a virus coming from China. The Media has now proclaimed this the Trump Virus, for some reason. Bernie Sanders and other democrat candidates are blaming the lack of leadership. The more politicians use this virus as political fodder, the more panic increases. Podcast 128 will discuss the coronavirus panic and how this Chinese virus may be a political tool used by Democrats against President Trump.COVID-19: The CoronavirusThe Coronavirus spreads mainly from person-to-person. There is a great deal of speculation about how this virus began. Most accept the idea that a person in China ate an uncooked bat. This theory should be a sounding board for Americans on how well Socialism works. I just thought I would throw that in for free for those socialist who love free stuff. The Coronavirus panic could also be a product of the Communist government of China. I will explain as to why this is plausible a little later. Before we dive into the theory of why Socialist/communist China may have developed this weapon, let’s look at the facts of Coronavirus. Why is Coronavirus such a threat?There are many types of human coronaviruses, including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease. The virus has been reported on every continent on the globe, mostly in countries with poor medical standards. The CDC has tested 33 people this week. China’s Reason For Spreading The Coronavirus PanicThe Coronavirus may be something that has accidentally found migrating into humans. Eating a raw bat would never be the best meal by any common sensed American. When you live in a Socialist society, you have to take what you can get. The Coronavirus panic may be an accident.There is speculation into this virus. Thoughts that lead down a darker road from the Chinese government. The virus that has halted world trade and sent panic into the minds of people worldwide. Could the virus be a laboratory created by the Chinese government? If so, what would be the benefit of releasing it into their population for the communist state? China’s possible biological warfare lab in WuhanSocialism and Communism have a history of murdering their populations. Mao Tse Tung killed more than 45 million Chinese people during his communist reign. When the government is god, they have the right to take your life. Communist China would be the perfect place to attack America through a virus. But why would China do this in today’s world? Coronavirus Hits the Stock Market and EconomySince the election of President Trump, the raping of American coffers has drastically decreased. China was taking around $500 billion each year from the American people. America has allowed this to happen over time. That was all until President Trump came along.Negotiating new trade deals was all part of the campaign of Trump. Trade deals that benefit the American people. The fake news media has been very critical of the tariffs. Tariffs that proved in the end that China needs our products. Products like food. It exposed the fake face of the communist government. Despite what Bernie Sanders would say about how great Socialism is.
Bernie Sanders: Hypocrite Socialist Who Will Destroy Wealth and America
Feb 25 2020 30 mins
Listen to Podcast 127 | Bernie Sanders the Hypocrite SocialistAmerica is a country that leads the world because of several reasons. Hard work, dedication to God and Family, and Capitalism. Now imagine you elect a leader who has never had a job outside of politics. Bernie Sanders would be that leader. One who wants to confiscate your wealth while getting richer himself. Podcast 127 will discuss Bernie Sanders a hypocrite Socialist who will destroy wealth and America with tax.Bernie Sanders is a Millionaire SocialistBernie Sanders currently has taken the lead for the Democrat Party in the 2020 presidential race. With Super Tuesday looming, I felt that it would be wise to introduce you to the real Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders that most Americans have not taken the time to know. So how did Bernie get to his position in life?Sanders has never held a 9 to 5 job. Sanders’s big push is to create social justice in the work environment. This stance seems very cloudy since he has never had a real job himself. It is obvious why Sanders would want to take the wealth of those who have been successful. Sanders himself has been a failure at Capitalism.As a common-sense capitalist, I find it a disgrace to allow such a failure to be the nomination of a major political party. To be clear, Sanders has earned money outside of government welfare. Bernie Sanders wrote an essay about a woman who fantasizes about being raped by three men simultaneously. He sounds like a social justice warrior to me.Welfare Bernie Sanders Before PoliticsBernie Sanders explained his family couldn’t imagine his “success.” To quote Sanders, “my brother and I and Mom and Dad grew up in a three-and-a-half-room rent-controlled apartment in Brooklyn, and we never had a whole lot of money.” This statement is not valid. Shocking, I know. His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago.Despite a prestigious degree, Sanders failed to earn a living. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck. This paycheck was a government check. Again, Sanders has been a failure at life, work, and Capitalism. Even with he held a college degree, which most did not do in his generation. One thing is clear; Bernie Sanders is a lazy bum.One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there. Sanders then tried his hand freelancing for leftist publications, writing about crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor.” And Sanders, “electricity was disconnected a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment.Bernie Sanders Has Always Been a Theif and a Hypocrite SocialistLiving without electricity because you are lazy is shameful. Sanders would steal power from the building where he lived.
Podcast 126The 2020 election is drawing ever closer. The media has been giving all of the attention to the Democrat Debates or President Trump. During this time, the U.S. House of Representatives has been passing bills that would drastically change the American Immigration system. Podcast 125 presented you with the New Way Forward Act. Another form of legislation has also been passed in the house. The Farm Workforce Modernization Act is very similar in scope. Podcast 126 will discuss the Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2019 and how this piece of legislation is a backdoor to amnesty for illegals.H.R. 5038 the Farm Workforce Modernization ActI have to first begin this podcast by thanking a loyal listener for bringing it to my attention. While I do spend a good bit of time in research, I had missed this bill. So “thank you” to Joe for bringing this to my attention. This helped in writing podcast 126. The piece of legislation I want to present to you is H.R. 5038. H.R. 5038 also known as the Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2019 sounds pleasant. I guess it relates to more gray matter in farmers’ brains supplied by Mike Bloomberg.H.R. 5038 is not about advancing farm equipment at all. This bill contains provisions related to alien farmworkers. Proposed by Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California, is about illegals working in our country. This includes provisions establishing a certified agricultural worker (CAW) status and changing the temporary worker program. So yet again the Democrat-controlled house has used misidentifying language.Podcast 126: H.R. 5038The bill states that the “Department of Homeland Security may grant CAW status to aliens applying who work 1,035 hours in agriculture for a two year period. To put this into basic math let us say you work 40 hours a week for two years. Minus two weeks each year for a vacation, you will work 4,000 hours. In other words, an illegal would only have to work 10 hours a week for two years to qualify. So why does this matter?Farm Workforce Modernization Act and IllegalsThe Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2019 then allows anyone who receives CAW status to apply for lawful permanent resident status. In other words, if you work 10 hours a week for two years, you are then granted citizenship. But the policy does not stop with a quick path to citizenship. By this piece of legislation, any illegal who applies cannot be detained or deported once they have a pending application. Detainment or deportation cannot take place until a formal final decision is made by the Department of Homeland security.As people with common sense, we know that government bureaucracy takes forever for the final decisi...
The New Way Forward Act: AOC, Tlaib, & Omar’s Plan to Destroy America
Feb 14 2020 30 mins
Listen to Podcast 125The most radical legislation ever introduced in the House of Representatives is starting to hit the news cycles. The New Way Forward Act embraces open borders and would charge the American people to bring back those deported. The December 2019 bill would radically change how our immigration system works, but not in the right way. Podcast 125 will discuss the New Way Forward Act, and how House Democrats care more about deported criminal illegal aliens than Americans. The New Way Forward Act and Democrats in the HouseDemocratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019. Yet the media gave it little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration. It would also make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens. The power to falls to immigration judges who can nullify deportation orders. And the American taxpayer will pay for the return of previously deported illegal aliens. Not to be considered a fringe bill, the New Way Forward Act has so far garnered 43 co-sponsors since it was rolled out late in 2019. Several immigration experts have spoken of the bill. “The New Way Forward Act is arguably the most radical piece of immigration legislation in American history. The act shields criminal illegal aliens from deportation, decriminalizes illegal entry, and creates a pathway for deported illegal aliens to return to the U.S.,” said Matthew Tragesser, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).House Democrats Care More About Illegals than AmericansAfter taking some time to read the New Way Forward Act, or H.R. 5383, one thing is clear. House Democrats care more about illegal aliens than law-abiding Americans and view criminals as victims. Forget American citizens like Jody Jones. Jones, whose brother was shot and killed by an illegal alien, attended Tuesday’s State of the Union address. At the State of the Union, President Donald Trump honored his brother’s memory and shared the story of his tragic death. On December 17, 2018, Jody’s brother, Rocky Jones, was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in Tulare County, California. The criminal alien who committed this brutal murder had previously been arrested for violent crimes and deported twice before. The criminal alien was arrested in December 2018 for the sixth time. But because of California’s sanctuary state policy, he was released from jail. A few days later, he went on a 24-hour reign of terror. Injuring several people, robbing a gas station, leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase, and killing 51-year old Rocky.
The Great American Comeback: Conservatism Finds Rebirth in America
Feb 08 2020 29 mins
Podcast 124President Donald Trump gave the State of the Union Tuesday night. Many pundits would have thought that he would have focused on impeachment or Ukraine. However, President Trump did not. He focused on how conservative ideas are bringing America back. The industries are booming, markets are booming, and America is no longer the world’s piggy bank. Podcast 124 will discuss the great American comeback and President Trump’s state of the union speech.2019 and Signs of the Great American Comeback2019 was a pretty good year for America itself. We have seen one of the most massive economic booms in the history of our country. Conservatives finally feel like we have a loud voice in America. Even roadblocks like the Mueller investigation had come to an end by mid-summer. But all that was going to change.This change was not a surprise to anyone who even remotely follows politics. As soon as the Mueller investigation ended, another one popped up. At the helm of the investigation was a mysterious “whistleblower” and Adam Schiff. To no one’s surprise, another investigation of President Trump was going to begin.Conservatives could have seen this coming. Remember, in 2018, people like Rashida Tlaib won elections and proclaimed she was going to impeach the mother f’er. But conservatives know she is as crazy as a run-over-dog. Yes, 2019 symbolized, even with impeachment looming, that the great American comeback was underway.Impeachment and the Rebirth of Conservative IdeasImpeachment has backfired in the face of the Socialist Democrats. The constant lies from Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler have exposed the Deep State even more. It has also proven that “Trump Derangement Syndrome” exists. Before we get into the full diagnosis, let us take a step back to September 2019.In early September, an anonymous whistleblower complaint was lodged by a member of the intelligence community. The whistleblower stated problems culminating in a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He accused President Trump used “the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.”Listen to Podcast 75 | The Biden BunchMultiple diplomats testified under oath that the Trump administration explicitly conditioned lifting the hold of the military aid to Ukraine. On Wednesday, December 18, the House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment charging Trump with abusing his office and obstructing Congr...
Winning the 2020 Election: Why Conservatives Must Fight to Win 2020
Feb 01 2020 30 mins
Podcast 123Conservatives have finally found a loud voice in America. What we have learned is that when we connect via websites, media, or social media, we stand firm. For far too long, the press had a stranglehold on what information we received. This narrative gave way to making conservatives believe that America was morally changing. What we are learning now is that America is more conservative than once thought. Podcast 123 will discuss why conservatives must join together in the fight in winning the 2020 election.Fake News and Their Hatred For You and ISome of you may have already seen this. If you are unaware of what I am about to inform you of, it will make your blood boil. CNN has never been a friend of conservatives. Now we have finally learned what CNN thinks of you and me. Don Lemon and his guests are laughing at those who support the President. They peg those who support conservative values as boomer rubes. In other words, if you stand against their illogical socialist liberalism, you are a country bumpkin. We know this is not true at all. While I am sure the rest of the country club most elite see standard Americans as rubes, they could learn from our practical way of life. First, Don Lemon is a two-cent hack. He is a nasty man who has done ungodly things in his life. I do not feel I need to go any further with this information. Trust me on this one. Don Lemon is filthy. Secondly, it was an NPR reporter who was interviewing Mike Pompeo, who could not find Ukraine on a map. Because of this encounter with Pompeo, the media felt they had to protect their own. The media hates that conservative values are fighting back, and this brings us to 2020.Winning the 2020 ElectionIf the 2018 election taught us anything, it is how crazy the socialist leftist is. For example, we have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She has an economics degree she never used and thinks that spending $92 trillion will stop climate change. Any “rube” knows that this is a dumb idea. But to the Don Lemons of the world, she is a genius.But look at the impact that AOC has had on the Democrat party. She has 2020 democrats scared Schiffless and out of their mind. All of the 2020 democrat candidates are working towards winning the election by pushing big spending. Elizabeth Warren wants $32 trillion to pay for
The U.S. Welfare State: Proposed Socialist Programs Enslaves Minorities
Jan 25 2020 29 mins
Podcast 122The total amount spent on the 80-plus federal welfare programs amounts to roughly $1.03 trillion per year. The American taxpayer has, for years, been funding enslavement of its own people. Democrat candidates for president want to expand this current spending form $1.03 trillion to over $10 trillion per year. But will this actually help or hurt minorities? Podcast 122 will discuss The U.S. welfare state and how proposed socialist programs by Democrat candidates enslave minorities in America.The History of Social Minority EnslavementSlavery in America is a blackeye on this great nation. No doubt, we have parts of our history that we are not proud of. Enslavement of groups of people is wrong no matter how you spin it. While slavery ended in America after the civil war, a new form of slavery has taken place. Socialist programs that exist in today’s government has enslaved several generations. Democrat candidates for president have been quick to offer programs that they describe would create “equality” and “justice” for minorities. When studying the topic, I found that social programs have done the opposite. The social welfare programs that were put into place are just a continuation of historical slavery in America. While no one is in physical chains, they do find themselves in psychological and moral chains. If you disagree with the U.S. welfare state, and you are of a certain race, you are an “outcast.” To defy what has occurred for generations makes you a modern-day, “Uncle Tom.” But when learning the facts, anyone can see the freedom they gain for being against such social programs.Fatherless Homes Created by the U.S. Welfare StateThe first problem with the U.S. welfare state is a practice that was taking place during slavery. Slaves were not allowed to enter into contracts. Therefore marriage was not legal for slaves since it is considered a contract. That being said, male slaves were stripped away from their homes for breeding purposes. This created a society of fatherless homes. The absence of fathers in the home is detrimental to any society. Let me give you an example. If a young black man comes from a house with a strong present father in the home, he is 90% more likely to graduate high school. Those with highly involved fathers were 42 percent more likely to earn A’s. The statistics do not lie. Having a male presence in the home creates success, not a social program.Much like slavery, the “Great Society” and other social programs that were rolled out in the 1960s was a destroyer of homes. In 1960, 22 percent of black children lived with single parents. In 2017, 68% of black children lived in a single-parent home. Common sense will tell you that social programs in the U.S. social state are not working.Enslavement by VotingAs I stated in the opening, the total amount spent on the 80-plus federal welfare programs amounts to roughly $1.03 trillion per year.
Ilhan Omar Under Investigation by FBI, ICE, Department of Education
Jan 22 2020 30 mins
Podcast 121Ilhan Omar is not a stranger to anyone who follows this podcast. We have been trying to warn the American people about the possible crimes Omar has committed. Many of you who had listened in August 2019 when Front Porch Politics exposed evidence of Omar’s real name, Ilhan Nur Said Elmi. Finally, after several months it looks like the federal government is getting involved. Podcast 121 discusses why Ilhan Omar is under investigation by the FBI, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, & the U.S. Department of Education.Ilhan Omar’s 2018 WinIlhan Omar hails from Minnesota’s 5th congressional district. This particular district may be in part why Omar is under investigation. Minnesota’s 5th congressional district has a history of being the ISIS recruitment capital of the United States. A story that broke on Fox News on February 16th, 2019 stated:“How Minneapolis’ Somali community became the terrorist recruitment capital of the US.”Omar follows former woman beater and congressman Keith Ellison. Karen Monahan, an organizer with the Sierra Club, was in a relationship with Ellison for years. The two are seen together in many of her social media posts. Including hiking together in national parks and posing with the Obamas at the White House. In 2017 Ellison was accused of abusing Monahan.Ellison, a devout Muslim, blazed the trail for Omar in her congressional run. It is also important to note that both Omar and Ellison are of the Muslim faith. Omar won the 2018 election getting 267,703 votes. Here is the tie in with Omar and her district. Omar’s district has the largest Somalian refugee population in America. At the beginning of 2019, FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab or Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS.Ilhan Omar’s History with Immigration & Customs EnforcementIlhan Omar has been a very sharp critic of ICE. Facts show why Omar is under investigation by ICE. Twitter has been her biggest platform. It is no surprise as to why she would hate the organization that protects America from dangerous illegals entering our country. Ilhan Omar’s official stance on ICE and immigration is as follows. “Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an unreformable organization that has become increasingly militarized, brutal, and unaccountable.”“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an unreformable organization that has become increasingly militarized, brutal, and unaccountable.”Ilhan OmarIt is of no one’s surprise that Omar hates ICE so much. Omar entered the United States by very questionable means. In 1995 Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the ‘Omar’ family. That is not her family. The Omar family is a second,
The Impeachment Civil War: Pelosi and Democrats are Dividing our Nation
Jan 18 2020 30 mins
Podcast 120House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew criticism Wednesday. Pelosi handed out commemorative pens with her name on them after signing a resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment. Pelosi’s claims of prayerfully making these decisions have long past. Pelosi and her comrades were all smiles as they gleefully delivered the articles of impeachment. In doing so, these Democrat Socialists have completed their goal. The goal of dividing our country. Podcast 120 will discuss the impeachment of Trump and how Nancy Pelosi and the Socialist Democrats are driving towards another Civil War. Pelosi Hands Out Souvenir Impeachment PensNancy Pelosi spits in the face of every American this week. I do not care what your political affiliation is. I am a conservative, and watching this sham has made me mad. Mad that we have such reckless and poor leadership in Washington, D.C. It is simple my Front Porch Politics family. The Speaker of the House has disgraced our nation and anyone of faith.For weeks we have been told by Pelosi how she does not relish in the Impeachment of Donald Trump. According to Pelosi, she has entered into this whole impeachment event prayerfully. But Pelosi has shown her real face this week. And it is not a pretty one; It’s a petty one. Pelosi made a mockery of what should be a solemn event in our country. So how did she do so?Nancy Pelosi decided that she would write every crooked letter of her name with several pens. Each pen used was to be a gift for those who were standing with her on impeachment. The pens arrived on a silver platter that we paid the cost. I agree with Benny Johnson of Turing Point USA. Johnson stated: “Impeachment is so “Prayerful” that Pelosi was handing out pens in celebration. Pathetic.” The real cost is not in the pens only, but to our nation.Impeachment Will Causes a Deeper Divide in our CountryNancy Pelosi has taken what a design for those who have committed high crimes against our country and made it her political game. Pressure from the Socialist Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Tlaib has forced her hand. What grows from this fraction will not be suitable for American politics. We now venture into a new realm of our society.Let me give you an example of what I am discussing. America historically had two teams that battled against each other in politics. While the sides were different in some ideas like tax rates, they were united. United under the great philosophy of America, it’s freedoms, Constitution, and flag. We have now left those days of American politics. What has emerged is dangerous.Socialists who are hell-bent on the destruction of everything our founders worked for are now calling the shots for Democrats.
Conservatives Must Win 2020: Why the Election is Critical for our Country
Jan 11 2020 30 mins
Podcast 119As we roll into this election year, one thing needs to be made clear. Conservatives must win 2020. I am not a higher education potentate who studied political science. But common sense does not require a political science degree. Podcast 119 discusses why Conservatives must win 2020 to stop anti-American congress members, higher taxes, and save your wallet. I am just like you. A tax-paying, gun-loving, Bible reading American. I love God, my family, my firearms, and our beautiful country. For this reason, the Front Porch Politics Podcast exists. To spread the gospel of conservatism and inform those who do not have the time to investigate every article.The Importance Why of Conservatives Must Win 2020This weekend’s podcast is going to inform you, hopefully. While trying to prepare for the podcast, I noticed that there were many news stories. So many news stories that it was hard to drill down to one topic to cover. So I am going to go off course this weekend. I will be discussing why you and I have to be a fighter for conservatism. It is time to get off the sidelines and get in the game. My three points will be the danger of the socialist, the anti-American congress members, and your wallet.Before I begin, let me encourage you to do something. As a conservative, get up and get active. If you are not registered to vote, register, we do not win without your vote. Secondly, talk to people. I encountered a young man today in my office, who made me ashamed of myself, a little. He spoke his mind about what is happening in our country. We need more of that. Third, go to work! Not your nine to five, work on political campaigns. So to our topics at hand, up to bat, the dangers of socialism.The Dangers of Socialism America is the walking dog when it comes to economics in the world. This peon country that began as a rebel nation by the grace of God has grown into an economic Hercules. The majority of U.S. residents rank comfortably in the top 10 percent of the world’s population. The global median individual income is about $2,100 per year. Most of you see that in a paycheck. Why is that? Because America’s economic system of capitalism is the best.Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cry that there are no living wages. When, in fact, America is kicking A when it comes to economics. Poverty has not defeated in our country. But this country is the best chance someone has to remove themself from a poverty state. You cannot be lazy. But socialism is a power grab, not a killer of poverty.Socialism kills excellent economies. It has never worked, nor will it ever work. Grit, work ethic, and drive will eliminate poverty. One of our most listened to podcast is about the laziness of America.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Love for Iran and its Terrorist Leaders
Jan 08 2020 30 mins
Podcast 118The Socialist Democrats have shown their true colors when it comes to the drone strike that killed Soleimani. The first thing that Ilhan Omar did was defend the dead terrorist. We might expect someone who grew up in a terrorist country to do so. What we do not expect is for someone who has grown-up in America to reiterate the same. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is always quick to remind all of us how quickly we could lose our values with a single election. Podcast 118 will discuss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s love for Iran and its terrorist leaders and how socialist fear war with Iran.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez love for TerroristAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to be the favorite among Democrats these days. Her Green New Deal was supposed to revolutionize how our countries economy worked. The socialist media darling is a champion chanter of “living wage.” All while never using the college degree you paid for with your taxes. It is not the $92 trillion she wanted to spend to bankrupt our country that has shown her true colors. Her love of terrorists and Iran has now extended her anti-American resume.Twitter has been a firestorm of anti-military tweets since the killing of the terrorist Soleimani. The “Squad” has hourly blasted the President for eliminating this ruthless killer. But why do Socialists love terrorists like Soleimani so much? The answer is pretty simple. Socialists are hell-bent on destroying America. The means to which they do so are not necessary to them.Just for an example. President Trump eliminates a terrorist who has killed innocent people. Not just Americans. Soleimani tortured people in both Iran and Iraq. For example, a young man in Iraq is now bedridden because Soleimani used a drill on both of his legs because he did not support him. Iran is the state sponsor of terrorists that Ocasio-Cortez is defending. Iran and State Sponsor of TerroristAfter the elimination of Soleimani, many of Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist buddies were quick to condemn the president. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the president a “monster” over a drone strike that killed a terrorist on Twitter. The response from a president that dares to stand up to terrorist is quite different from the previous administration. The Obama administration was a more “Iran” friendly office.A case in point is how Obama dealt with Iran in 2016. The Obama administration made a payment of $1.7 billion to Iran in 2016. The $1.7 billion was the settlement of a decades-old arbitration claim between the U.S. and Iran. An initial 400 million euros, Swiss francs, and other foreign currency were delivered on pallets Jan. 17. This was the same day Tehran agreed to release four American prisoners. It sounds like a “quid pro quo.”Obama has been heralded as the champion of taking out a terrorist by the media and liberals. True he did give the “go ahead” on the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden. Remember, Bin Laden was, for the most part, a figurehead. He was watching television when the attack took place. I wonder if AOC took to Twitter to criticize then.Socialist Claims of War Crimes by the Trump AdministrationOc...
Democrats Defend Terrorist Soleimani Led By Omar, Tlaib, and The Media
Jan 04 2020 30 mins
Podcast 117Iran led protestors stormed the U.S. Embassy in Iraq on December 31st. The protestors then burned part of our Embassy. In response to the protest, President Trump put together a plan. A murderous terrorist by the name general Qassem Soleimani was then taken out by airstrikes. To the common sense person, this is a win. Democrats and the media have quickly defended this terrorist. Podcast 117 will discuss how Democrats Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, and the media, defended the terrorist Soleimani, not the American people.Intelligence gathered by the United States has shown that Soleimani was planning more attacks on the United States. This Bin Laden type character has now met the maker. Most Americans who care about freedom and have not forgotten what terrorists did to our country are proud of what our President did. Democrats like Ilhan Omar have shown their true colors.Ilhan Omar Defends Terrorist SoleimaniI am sure that no one listening to this conservative podcast is surprised by Omar’s words. She hates anything the President does. On the other hand, she shows her true colors of hatred for our country. Omar is always quick to blame America for all of the world’s problems. She also views our country defending its people as criminal.Omar has been in the center of controversy before with her anti-Semitic rants on her favorite social media platform Twitter. But this time, she took it to new levels. Omar has shown that she would rather stand with a murderous terrorist than the American people. Iranian general Qassem Soleimani has been responsible for more than 600 American deaths. Ilhan Omar Under Investigation by FBI, ICE, Department of EducationOmar tweeted, “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?” Ilhan continued, “Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.” So let me get this right, Omar, you will stop our President from saving American lives?Ilhan Omar, a Democrat, Defends the Terrorist.Omar was not in her twitter storm. Friday afternoon Omar then tweeted, “We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official…” A foreign official? Soleimani was a murder and ruthless terrorist. But to Omar, he is a foreign official. I guess Omar would have considered Bin Laden an austere religious scholar.
Creating a Recession: Winning the 2020 Election by Killing the Economy
Jan 01 2020 30 mins
Podcast 116As the 2020 election draws close, there is a scheme underway. It is not a scheme that is being hidden. This is in plain sight. The socialist have cried for a $15 an hour minimum wage for some time now. The term “living wage” is thrown around like a lawn dart from the ’80s. The danger is being done by many states and cities across our country. The estimated cost will be 3.5 million jobs. Podcast 116 will discuss the liberals’ plans for creating a recession with minimum wage increases to try to win the 2020 election.Creating a Recession with a new Minimum WageThe minimum wage in more than 20 states and 26 cities and counties across the United States will increase starting on January 1st. Affecting more than half of the country’s population and marking the highest jurisdictional raise in U.S. history.“Next year’s increase is … going to be seen as the highest number of minimum wage increases of any time,”Yannet Lathrop“Next year’s increase is … going to be seen as the highest number of minimum wage increases of any time,” Yannet Lathrop, a researcher at the National Employment Law Project, stated.Seventeen of the states and municipalities will surpass $15 an hour. Later next year, four more states and 23 more municipalities will raise their wage floors as well, according to NELP. Those working in the state of Illinois and the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota, will see their salaries increase twice in the new year.Among the cities that have agreed to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour are Seattle and Petaluma, New York City. Seattle and Petaluma will maintain lower-wage floors for smaller businesses, while New York City will require all companies to pay workers $15 per hour.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Living WageAn argument made by many of the millennial socialists is that they cannot make it on their current pay. The best example of this is with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ocasio-Cortez has stated that she could not make it on the income she made as a bartender. That she would have benefited from a $15 minimum wage. The issue is AOC is not being truthful.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Remarks at 2011 Boston UniversityOcasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University College of Arts and Sciences with a B.A. in 2011. She majored in international relations and economics. Keep in mind that she lived in New York City. A city that would allow someone with a degree in both fields to find a job using their college education. She chose not to.
Democrat Control Ruined Cities: Detroit, Chicago, and San Francisco
Dec 28 2019 30 mins
Podcast 115Democrats have long heralded themselves as problem solvers. They accuse Republicans and conservatives of being heartless and corrupt. Actual evidence shows the opposite. Democrat control has brought about the ruin of many of America’s cities. Podcast 115 will discuss how Democrat control ruined cities by examining Detroit, Chicago, and San Francisco.Democrat Control Ruined Cities: DetroitDetroit last elected a Republican mayor in 1957. Detroit was the powerhouse of the industrial complex in America. Producing some of the most iconic cars that the world has ever seen. This is not the story any longer. Detroit is now a prime example of urban failure. Sadly enough, Democrat’s control of Detroit ruined the city.Past generations recognized Detroit for the great cars it produced. Today’s generation knows it more for its poverty, crime, rot, and bankruptcy. And not to forget it is the poorest big city in the nation. Almost 40% of the population living below the poverty line. Detroit also ranks in the top five of the most dangerous cities.Podcast 115: Democrat Control Ruined Cities: DetroitDetroit is also a pit of political corruption. But Democrats are never tied to political corruption. Just in recent years, one mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, was convicted of corruption and sent to federal prison for 28 years. And building inspectors have been indicted on federal felony bribery charges. A former city council member was investigated in a bribery and kickback scandal.Detroit Representative Rashida TlaibWho is the congressional representative from Detroit? None other than Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib was elected to Congress in 2018. She made history as the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, and along with Omar, she is one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress. Before she could even finish her first term, she was already mired in corruption and scandal.Tliab, a Democrat, Federal Election Commission filings show that after Tlaib’s election in 2018, to her first term, she paid herself a total of $17,500 from her campaign chest. Although congressional candidates can pay themselves during their election cycle, they are restricted from drawing a salary after they are elected. Front Porch Politics covered this story in November.Rashida TlaibIn August of that year, Tlaib texted her future chief of staff, Ryan Anderson, at 6:38 a.m. Her text read: “Sorry for the early text but do you think the campaign can still pay me a stipend until the general. Trying to get out of debt.” In an email from April 4, 2018, Talib text: “I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000.” Talibs demand for cash was to cover the cost of “car maintenance, childcare, and other necessities.” Tlaib ended the conversation with: “Please let me know if I can proceed.” Tlaib is corrupt to the core, but she is not alone. Democrat control ruined other cities also. Democrat Control Ruined Cities: ChicagoChicago’s last GOP mayor was elected in 1927.
Trump Rises and Pelosi Falls: How Impeachment is a Losing Strategy
Dec 21 2019 30 mins
Podcast 113It is official, and the votes are submitted. Impeachment is on Trump’s record. Oh, wait! Nancy Pelosi is not sending it to the Senate for a trial. It looks like Nadler, Schiff, and Pelosi just burned over $3 million of your money. Good job, you Socialist liberals, you sure do show love to the American taxpayer. Podcast 113 will discuss the impeachment of Donald Trump and he is rising, and how Pelosi has fallen in her losing strategy.Trump Rises During the ImpeachmentThe destruction of our Constitution has taken place right before our eyes. Madam Speaker Pelosi has pushed impeachment faster than a hot knife through butter. Spending over $3 million, and losing people in her own party. She is on a mission, so she must push on. Not to mention that she is also missing the will of the American people. Just make sure that you do not say she hates the president.President Trump has reason to gloat. Like a quarterback who just threw a 4th and 14 first down pass. Trump rises in popularity. Pelosi falls. A new poll released hours before the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives was poised to impeach President Trump indicates that by a slight 51-45 percent majority, Americans oppose removing the president from office. Things do not look good for Pelosi. Maybe it was what she said.Pelosi Falls in Popular OpinionNancy Pelosi has to be one egotistical person. She is quick to let everyone know she is a Catholic, all while supporting killing a God created life. Pelosi is also quite the narcissist. Her comment after the impeachment vote proved her true feelings. Pelosi states she has a “spring in her step.” This, of course, is because of the moral consciousness in her caucus. Pelosi is delusional. How could someone who claimed to be so somber and prayerful about impeaching a president now say she a “spring in her step.” This is a spit in the face of every American. But the evidence is clear. Pelosi’s actions are why she is falling, and Trump is rising.The story does not end with this quick clip. During the same press conference, Pelosi tries to change the subject. She always wants to talk about jobs the Democrats have created. But deep down, this is a mirage. Pelosi continues to want to take credit for the USMCA trade agreement. However, this was a Trump idea, not Pelosi. The dam walls are cracking around Pelosi. She is left sticking her hand over the crack, trying to stop the leak. But the socialist will not help seal the leak. Trump emerges victorious in polling.Impeachment is a Losing StrategyDeep down, the Democrats know that impeachment is a losing strategy. Were this a winning issue, the debate from Thursday night would have discussed it more. Pelosi has found herself falling between a rock and a hard place. The American people hate the thoughts of impeachment in an election year. And Socialist democrats scream and chat for impeachment. She is in a lose-lose.
The House Judiciary Impeachment: Conservatives Need to Fight Back
Dec 14 2019 30 mins
Podcast 112The House Judiciary committee lead by Jerry Nadler concluded last night without taking a vote. They did not do this because they felt compelled to investigate the finding further. The delay was all about optics. Nadler wants this vote to be on television during the day. If he had taken the vote last night, no one would have seen it. Outside of yours genuinely, Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh. The joke that our congress has become is sickening. Only a few members in the freedom caucus are fighting for you and I. Podcast 112 will discuss the House Judiciary Impeachment Vote, and why conservatives need to fight back against this attack on the President.Rep. Steve Cohen Judiciary TestimonyAs many of you know, I am not a fan of Steve Cohen. He is a loudmouth liar. My question is, who is Tennessee voted for this clown? I do not understand how a state that can be a common-sense state would vote for such a character. In case you didn’t know, he is the congressman who brought the bucket of KFC to a hearing.Cohen made the statement that “..they (Republicans) talk about the three most respected professors in America…” Where does this classless clown get his information? I do not know of anyone in America who would consider these three to be the most respected. Cohen is talking about Noah Feldman, Pamela Karlan, and Michael Gerhardt.Liberal Law Professors and the Impeachment VoteFor those of you who do not know all three professors who were mentioned by Cohen are democrat donors. The Schiff panel and Nadler’s panel have all been democrat donors. Witnesses that may have connected information are absent. It is a disgrace. Nadler and other Democrats have cited the founding fathers. I guarantee you our founding fathers would have stomped a mudhole in this anus. Yet, we reference these three in the House Judiciary Impeachment hearings.Our founding fathers would have run every one of these clowns out of town. All members who support impeachment are also for impeaching a baby’s life. The founders were pretty big on the protection of life. Democrats are changing gears to show support for a more socialist government. And our founders were against big government. The founders would have also been against a laughing stock like Pamela Karlan teaching in a university. Pamela Karlan’s Shameful TestimonyI want to explain for just a moment what I mean. Democrats talk about how our founding fathers were fearful of someone like Trump. A man who wants to be king. Pamela Karlan breathlessly reiterated these thoughts. Karlan states, “while the President may name his son Barron, he can’t make him a Barron.” As you all heard from the audio, Sheila Jackson Lee and other Democrats laugh at this insult thrown at the child. No one respects Pamela Karlan. No one except those in the liberal elitists...

Deval Patrick: The Silent Frontrunner for Democrats in the 2020 Election
Nov 30 2019 30 mins
Podcast 110It does not take a political genius to see that the Democrat party is struggling to find a quality candidate on whom they can depend. Socialists and Socialism have hijacked the Democrat party. Candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren use Hitler like tactics to blame someone else for everyone’s problems. In my opinion, neither are the future candidate. The Democrat party is holding their Ace card up their sleeve for a silent frontrunner. Podcast 110 discusses Deval Patrick and why he is the silent frontrunner for the Democrat candidate for President in the 2020 election.Deval Patrick is a name that some of you may have heard. Patrick is most known for serving as the Governor of Massachusetts. He was also at one time a potential Supreme Court pick for Obama. Reasons for Obama not making him a pick is pure speculation but could be because of Patrick’s future ambitions. Deval Patrick is the silent frontrunner candidate in waiting for the 2020 election.Who is Deval Patrick?Deval Patrick grew up in the South Side of Chicago. Patrick earned a scholarship to Milton Academy in Milton, Massachusetts, in the eighth grade. He went on to attend Harvard College and Harvard Law School, where he was President of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau. After graduating, he practiced law with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. In 1994, Bill Clinton appointed him as the United States assistant attorney general for the civil rights division of the United States Department of Justice. In this position, he worked on issues including racial profiling and police misconduct.Patrick won an election in 2006 as Governor of Massachusetts. And then he won re-election in 2010. It is important to note that he is the first African American elected governor of Massachusetts.Patrick Deval and the NAACPFormer Governor Deval Patrick was the keynote speaker at the Annual NAACP Gala in Providence on November 1st. Patrick stated: “As you see in politics, people are coming off the sidelines and realizing our democracy is up to us.” Let me stop right in the middle of this quote and remind everyone of something. America is not a Democracy. America is a Constitutional Republic. While delivering his speech, Patrick continued: “I think the NAACP in a non-partisan way has stood for that in its full history, and I’m honored to be here to support that.” The question I would pose to you is this. Do you believe the NAACP is non-partisan? Can you name a conservative candidate they have supported in the last 20 years?The NAACP has every right to support whomever they would like. I do find it misleading to make it sound like a non-partisan organization. The President of the National Education Association could state the same. But this would be further from the truth. Organizations like the NAACP and NEA tout their ties to any Democrat candidate. Deval Patrick and Bill ClintonLike any other liberal politician, Patrick worked for President Clinton during the late 1990s. The political power the Clinton’s welded in during this time was unmatched. Anyone who wanted a future position had to bow the sacred Clinton cow.
Foreign Agent Ilhan Omar: How Iran and Qatar Infiltrated our Democracy
Nov 26 2019 30 mins
Podcast 109The U.S. Rep of Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, which includes all of Minneapolis and some of its suburbs, elected Ilhan Omar in 2018. Omar has no doubt been at the center of many controversies. New evidence released from a Florida court testimony shows Omar’s true colors. According to the statement, a foreign government recruited Ilhan Omar. Omar also received funding from a foreign government and passed sensitive information through intermediates to Iran. Podcast 109 gives testimony from Alan Bender showing Ilhan Omar may be acting as a foreign agent while Iran and Qatar infiltrated America.Iran and Qatar and Ilhan OmarIlhan Omar has been very outspoken about her Muslim faith in congress. America is the land of religious toleration. Her doing so is well within her rights — it not her outspokenness for her religion that is troubling. Omar’s constant attack on Isreal and those of the Jewish faith is well known. She has proven time and time again to be an Anti-Semite. No doubt, this congressional member is at war with the Executive branch on Isreal’s role in the world. Omar constantly criticizes Isreal and claims they do not have rights to the land on which they live. She calls them oppressors of Palestinians. Omar goes even further to remove Jesus’ heritage and proclaims him not to be a Jew, but Palestinian.Given her previous background, and questions of her legal immigration status, there are causes for concern to the American people. But Omar has yet to be investigated by the current House of Representatives. New evidence now shows that Omar acted as a foreign agent for Iran and Qatar. Two state sponsors of terrorism, and enemies to the United States.Iran and Qatar’s Sponsorship of TerrorismBoth Iran and Qatar have been sponsors of terrorism. Iran has been an enemy of the United States for some time now. Iran and Qatar both have ties to al-Qaeda and ISIS. Qatar has been called “the Club Med for Terrorists.” We all know the history of Iran and terrorism. How are these two countries tied to Ilhan Omar?Everyone understands the consequences of acting as a foreign agent. Being a foreign agent is a triple threat when that person serves in the U.S. House of Representatives. No investigation into Ilhan Omar acting as a foreign agent has occurred. So what is the evidence that may show Omar acted as a foreign agent? Flordia Court Testimony of Ilhan Omar, Iran, and QatarThe trial of Skeikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani gave evidence against Omar. Kuwaiti-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender gave testimony in th...
Adam Schiff’s Impeachment Hearings: Democrats Plan to Remove Your Vote
Nov 24 2019 30 mins
Listen to Podcast 108This last week the Impeachment hearing public show took place. These impeachment hearings did not move the needle in public opinion. The Schiff witch hunt backfired on the House Democrats. Adam Schiff not only swayed opinion in favor of Donald Trump. Schiff also proved that he is fighting against the American people. Podcast 108 discusses Adam Schiff’s Impeachment Hearings on Ukraine and how Democrats plan to remove your vote with testimony from Fiona Hill.President Trump claimed Friday that Democrats “looked like fools” during this week’s impeachment proceedings. After public hearings by the House Intelligence Committee over the past two weeks, both parties are digging in as Democrats prepare to draft articles of impeachment. My opinion is that the Articles of impeachment have already been written. The full House vote will likely take place by the end of the year.Democrats have been seeking to build the case that Trump sought to leverage U.S. military aid to Ukraine. Democrats also claim that the President used a White House visit by President Volodymyr Zelensky in exchange for investigations of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. The hearings were like a transformer, more than meets the eye.The Schiff Impeachment Hearings and Exposing BidenOne thing to consider from the hearings is the Democrats and Schiff exposed the Bidens. The Impeachment hearings have exposed that Ukraine was a corrupt country. A corrupt country that allowed American politicians to gain wealth from your money. It was a pay for play country. Joe Biden was more than happy to use this system to benefit his inept son.Adam Schiff has constantly run out to his media friends and used a comment made by witnesses to say Trump is guilty. What Adam Schiff is ignoring is the real crimes that were committed by the Biden family. Schiff also is putting a target on his back. Schiff is setting himself up to be investigated if he gets the conviction that he and the house Democrats want. This investigation will not be a witch hunt. It will be an investigation that has actual evidence.The Russian ConnectionIf you are scratching your head as to how Schiff may be exposing himself I will be happy to explain. Adam Schiff was punked by some Russian comedians. Schiff who has cried that he has evidence that will prove Trump colluded with Russia for three years. We have yet to see his evidence. Adam Schiff’s impeachment hearing on Thursday tried to again start the narrative that Trump is in bed with Russia.
Socialist Crimes: How Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, and Omar Scammed Donors
Nov 16 2019 30 mins
Podcast 107The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib. The House Ethics Committee has been provided evidence that Talib may have violated federal law. This is the third time that a “Squad” member has been shown to violate the law, but nothing has happened. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spent $800G off the books. Ilhan Omar did violate campaign finance rules and may have committed tax evasion. Why has nothing been done? Podcast 107 will discuss the Socialist Crimes of Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar and why the Democrats in the House are covering it up.Socialist Crimes and Rashida TlaibRashida Talib will face an upcoming Ethics Congressional Ethics committee probe. News of Tliab was not publicized this week because of the impeachment hearings. Impeachment hearings that accuse the President of bribery, in place of quid-pro-quo. Testimony yesterday destroyed that narrative of the president. Democrats are ignoring real crimes. This is an old Socialist tactic. Get rich on the backs of others, and cover it up. The committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.In one April 2018 email offered as an exhibit by OCE, Tlaib wrote that she was “struggling financially right now” and was “sinking.” She continued: “So I was thinking the campaign could loan me money, but Ryan said that the committee could actually pay me. I was thinking of a one-time payment of $5k.”Rashida Tlaib’s Request for More MoneyIn another email, on April 4, 2018, Tlaib wrote: “I am just not going to make it through the campaign without a stipend.” Tlaib continued: “With the loss of a second income to lean back on.” Talib text: “I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000.” Talibs demand for cash was to cover the cost of “car maintenance, childcare, and other necessities.” Tlaib ended the conversation with: “Please let me know if I can proceed.”This is not the first time that Tlaib has asked for money. In August of that year, Tlaib texted her future chief of staff Ryan Anderson at 6:38 a.m. Her text read: “Sorry for the early text but do you think the campaign can still pay me a stipend until the general. Trying to get out of debt.”So there you have it. The Socialist has time and time again shown that they do not really care about their donors. It is all about getting money for themselves. Honestly, I was unaware that it was the responsibility of donors to get a candidate out of debt. How much news coverage have you seen on this? Very little to none. Is the Democrat-controlled House covering for Tlaib? They have done this before.
Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself: A Cover-up By the Clintons and the Comeys
Nov 13 2019 21 mins
Podcast 106Americans have become more and more concerned with Jeffery Epstein’s suicide. This has become a popular meme on social media. The evidence shows that there is a cover-up in Epstein’s murder. Assistant U.S. Attorney Maurene Comey of the Southern District of New York, daughter of James Comey, plays a part in this story. From the Royal Family to the Clintons many speculate who may have had Epstein murdered. Podcast 106 will discuss why Jeffery Epstein didn’t kill himself, and the connection to Maurene Comey and other top officials.Is it not strange how a person who was optimistic about new evidence just killed themselves? While we will never know what exactly took place with Jeffery Epstein, new evidence shows he did not take his life. The media and government officials were quick to state he hanged himself. But the video evidence of security was destroyed. New evidence also shows the story of Epstein was buried by ABC news. ABC News has even worked with CBS to fire the so-called “whistleblower.” And just so you know that CBS fired the wrong person. So with trojan like protection demanded by fake news to protect the Trump whistleblower, why is the ABC whistleblower not protected. Just to educate you, whistleblower laws are in place to protect the person from termination. The laws do not protect their name.New Details Emerge in the Epstein SuicideJeffrey Epstein’s autopsy revealed that he broke a bone in his neck, according to a person familiar with the matter. An injury commonly found in victims of strangulation. Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden stated that the evidence in Epstein’s case is “rare” in suicidal hangings. Baden revealed that Epstein’s body bore signs of homicide. Despite the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office ruling that the money man’s death was caused by suicide by hanging. Why the large cover-up? Why would the truth not want to be found? If Epstein didn’t kill himself the evidence of why could be tied to James Comey’s daughter. So who is Maurene Comey?Maurene Comey and Epstein’s MurderMaurene Comey the daughter of James Comey has a tie to this case. You can see her in the photo found on our podcast 106 notes page. Maurene Comey is sporting a pro-Hillary, pro-feminazi tee shirt. She is a deep state attorney for the Southern District of New York. Why does this matter? The defense argued that the court should step in to get to the bottom of these issues on Epstein’s death. By holding hearings or assigning a lawyer to look into them. Weingarten, Epstein’s defense attorney, said that while the defense has “complete confidence” in prosecutors from the Southern District and the FBI, “these are allegations against serious components of the United States Department of Justice. Sometimes the appearance of justice is just as important as justice itself.” Court supervision is key “for the public to have confidence in the ultimate fi...
Thank a Veteran: Veterans Day 2019 | Podcast 105
Nov 09 2019 5 mins
Podcast 105November 11th is celebrated in the United States of America each year with Veterans Day. This day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served to keep our country free. Each year on this day we stand as grateful citizens who know that only two forces have granted us freedom. Jesus Christ and the American soldier. Podcast 105 will remind all Americans to reserve time on November 11th to thank a veteran.This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on November 11th because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” to account for all veterans in all wars.There are around 20.4 million U.S. veterans according to data from the Department of Veterans Affairs. This represents less than 10% of the total U.S. adult population. In the current Congress, 20% of senators and 19% of representatives had prior military service, the lowest point in American history.As our country argues and fights over things such as impeachment, we want to take time in podcast 105 to thank all Veterans. You sacrificed so we can be free. Without your dedication to the freedom of our country, we would not be free. On a personal note, I have several friends who are veterans. It is you I personally want to thank.Thank You to All VeteransDon’t ever think for one minute that there are not those who do not appreciate your service. I am grateful for all that you have done for my freedom. You gave up time with your family to keep us all safe. This podcast is a small way I can publically say thank you to all veterans. Thank you for what you stand for. For the bravery you have shown. And for the honor you brought to yourself and your country.We celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. For without the American Veteran we have no freedom. Without the America Veteran, we have no society. One could even say without the American Veteran we would have no country.May God continue to bless you. And May God continue to bless the United States of America.
Murders in Mexico: Socialist and the Media Ignore the Story | Podcast 104
Nov 06 2019 30 mins
Podcast 104Nine Americans were brutally murdered this last week in Mexico. The murders have drawn a response for action by President Trump and Republicans. Socialists like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) were silent. Even national news outlets like CNN pushed the story to the bottom of the page in place for stories about Jane Fonda wanting impeachment. Podcast 104 will discuss the murders in Mexico of American citizens, and why the Socialist politicians and the media ignored the story.The Murders in MexicoIn a massacre that shocked people around the world, three American women and six children were slaughtered by drug cartel sicarios in northern Mexico on Monday. They were killed in broad daylight while traveling in a convoy of SUVs. Several of them, including infant twins, burned to death when one of the cars exploded. Six more children were wounded.More than 24 hours after the attack, Mexican security forces have not identified which drug cartel was responsible for the killing. What is known is that the victims, members of the extended LeBaron family with dual U.S.-Mexican nationality, were part of a Mexico-based offshoot of the Mormon church whose leaders have defied violent drug cartels in the past.Mexican Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo has suggested that the victims, who were driving on a rural road in Sonora near the border of the state of Chihuahua and not far south of Arizona, may have been mistaken for a rival gang or even caught in the crossfire between warring groups.Murders in Mexico and Ilhan OmarAfter three American families were murdered Tuesday in Sonora, Mexico, Socialist darlings were silent. Ilhan Omar chose instead to continue her rhetoric on impeachment. Omar has yet to tweet anything related to this tragic event. I guess she just sees this event as some people did something. So why the silence when white people are murdered by a drug cartel?The proof is definitive on Omar. She is a Socialist politician who wishes to focuses on a radical change in our country in place of caring about the American people. There is no doubt that she does not care about the people themselves. We have to remember this is the same person who pleaded to have ISIS sympathizers and recruits to receive an easy sentence. Make no mistake about it, if this had been anyone of color murdered by a group of white people she would be going nuts on Twitter.It is not strange also that when people of any faith outside of her own Omar is unconcerned. I’m not looking for Omar to talk about this every day. Omar could have taken five minutes out of her day to send condolences.
The Impeachment Vote: Political Versus Principle | Podcast 103 Transcripts
Nov 02 2019 30 mins
Podcast 103Nancy Pelosi called for an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives. This vote was to determine if an official impeachment inquiry would happen. The vote passed on partisan lines, and now we find ourselves diving into the investigation of President Donald J. Trump. Alexander Hamilton warned of partisanship over principle. Podcast 103 pontificates the House of Representatives’ impeachment vote, and why framers like Alexander Hamilton feared this partisan division.The Impeachment Vote and the FoundersWelcome to Podcast 103 of Front Porch Politics. Let us begin by discussing the impeachment vote from Thursday. The House vote to establish procedures for possible impeachment of President Trump ended with two Democrats opposing and no Republicans favoring. This vote was exactly was Alexander Hamilton feared in discussing the impeachment provisions laid out in the Constitution.Alexander Hamilton warned of what he called the “greatest danger” in a decision to move forward with impeachment. He stated the danger was to “be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” We have arrived at what our founders’ feared. Sharp division in our country. Hamilton feared impeachment would be used by “most cunning or most numerous factions” in our government. This is where we find ourselves today with politicians in Washington. Two groups not unified but greatly divided. Politics is more important that “We the People.” Nothing is getting done in our nation’s capital while this takes place. Yet, we still have an impeachment vote in the house. Hamilton’s Thoughts on ImpeachmentAlexander Hamilton insisted that the process for impeachment and removal must remain neutral and nonpartisan among members of Congress. So where do we arrive at impeachable offensives? That is, in fact, a good question. This is a House of Representatives’ decision. Let me give you an example.The House of Representatives, led by Democrats, could consider anything to fit this category. If they want to impeach Trump for eating a hamburger on Taco Tuesday, they can do it. Does this constitute impeachment and removal of office? By all means no it does not. Now we see what Hamilton feared. Not a crime, but a partisan political witch hunt.
Democrats Hate Conservatives: Why Impeachment Is Really About You
Oct 26 2019 29 mins
Podcast 102America is divided right now. There is no doubt about this. We have not seen this much divide in our country since the pre-Civil War. The difference in what is taking place now and what has taken place in the past is the ideology of the politics in Washington D.C. Republicans in Washington feel that they are fighting against a closed-door coup. While Democrats are showing signs of mental and moral breakdown with impeachment. Podcast 102 will look at why the Washington Democrats hate conservatives so much, and why they will stop at nothing to end conservatism in our country.Who Democrats in Washington HateLet me begin by laying the groundwork. Imagine that you believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. You believe in low taxes. People should be self-sufficient and rely on themselves for support. You own guns, like gas-powered cars, and eating hamburgers. Standing for the national anthem is a sense of pride for you. July 4th is about independence, not oppression. This is what today the media, and Washington liberals consider a dangerous person.Did I mention if you are a white man the danger gets even higher? The typical conservative wants everyone to enjoy freedom. Family, faith, and freedom are the cornerstone of what you live for each day. You believe that there was a manifest destiny for the creation of our country. And yes, no one is above the law. Hard work and not government handouts are how you get ahead in life. And if someone were to push you, you would fight back.Democrats in Washington Hate ConservativesIf you found yourself in the category that I have just mentioned I want to let you in on a little secret. Democrats in Washington hate conservatives. You are the deplorables. The smelly Wal-Mart shoppers. And just to be clear, you are my kind of person. Although I believe in living life with class, there is also a side of me that will go Augustus McCrae on you. If you do not know who that is, educate yourself and watch Lonesome Dove. My front porch family members are who the Democrats despise the most.* Faith Friday #8: The Sacrifice Made For Freedom – Part One: Jesus Christ* AOC Owes $2000 in Taxes But Wants To Raise Taxes On Everyone Else* Money Monday #9: Pelosi’s Plan to Bankrupt America with $3T Heroes Act*
Socialist AOC Supports Bernie Sanders for Democrat Nomination in 2020
Oct 23 2019 30 mins
Podcast 101Last Saturday Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came out to publically endorse Democrat Socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. This comes as no surprise to anyone who may be up-to-date on current political trends. Ocasio-Cortez could simply be trying to be a promoter of another socialist. Podcast 101 is going to discuss why Socialist AOC supports Bernie Sanders for Democrat Nomination in 2020.On stage at a rally in Queens on Saturday Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expounded on her decision to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary. Perhaps as important as her endorsement was the motivation behind it. Both politicians are proud socialist. Ocasio-Cortez brings youth to the Bernie camp. If Sanders can somehow stay alive and win the nomination, Ocasio-Cortez stands to gain ground politically.Lies that Ocasio-Cortez Spreads about BernieMany know that AOC has bee adamant about her costly and destructive plan the Green New Deal. This has been a topic of discussion on the podcast before. This $92 trillion plan to overhaul America would be a disaster. One theory I would like to present is why AOC would jump on the Bernie bandwagon. Ocasio-Cortez portrayed Sanders as the only trustworthy candidate in a field of sellouts and shills. This is all about trying to find uniting the party. So let us first let you in on the true beliefs of Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez. Let’s begin by looking at their stand on her “religion” the Green New Deal.The Green New Deal and Bernie SandersBernie Sanders has come out in full support of the Green New Deal. Here is where you can quickly find hypocrisy in the Democrat candidate. In this podcast, you will quickly see how common sense will tell you that Sanders is not trustworthy. Socialist AOC supports Bernie because they are similar. Here is the best example I can give you.The Green New Deal demands air travel all but made extinct. To “save the earth” fossil fuel travel has to be eradicated. The demands for no air travel may seem very unpractical. Because it is impractical. Our economic system would come to a grinding halt if air travel were banned.All while they would love to shut down fossil fuels, Sanders has driven up large private jet travel costs. Bernie Sanders spent over $400,000 on private air travel just last month. This is according to campaign finance reporting. To give you a little science. A private jet traveling from New York to London will produce as much carbon in one flight as your car for the whole year. Can you say hypocrisy?Socialist AOC supports Bernie Sanders to Grow SocialismOcasio-Cortez is not concerned with Bernie’s hypocrisy. The truth is she is not concerned with the climate. It is all a scam to do one thing. Drive America towards a Socialist state.
The October Democrat Debate: A Demand for Socialism & Medicare for All
Oct 19 2019 30 mins
Podcast 100The Democrat Party held their first debate for the month of October. This debate shared the ideas of the top tier candidates for the new Democrat Socialist Party. Socialism has taken root in the Democrat party and has now begun its power grab. Ideas like “Medicare for All” and tax the rich are battle cries and will tax the middle class. Podcast 100 is going to discuss why Socialism has invaded the Democrat party and how this will destroy America.Key Points From the October DebateFor the first time this year, Elizabeth Warren was frequently called out and criticized by her rivals. Warren has taken the first place spot from former front runner Joe Biden. Biden called out Warren for her health care plan. He stated, that her plans were “vague.” For the most part, he is rightWarren refused to discuss her plan to raise taxes. Constantly we were told that people’s costs would go down. First, we all know this is not true. While you may not pay for health insurance, you will pay in taxes. Tax rates would have to drastically increase on the working people of this country. Common Sense Approach to Medicare for AllLet us just take a common-sense approach to this problem. The 400 richest Americans’ net worth was $2.7 trillion in 2018. Just so you know there are 585 billionaires in America. If our government were to take every cent that the billionaires have it would be no more than $3 trillion. Now let’s apply the math we discussed in podcast 100. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. Keep in mind that billionaires are already paying taxes. So we can remove what they pay into the system out because the government is taking it all in our equation. That being said our one time wealth grab will not cover the first year of cost. Is this not the idea we heard from Warren and Sanders in the October Democrat debate? So then who does the burden of the cost fall to? Medicare for All: Tax MillionairesThe next step to achieve the $3.4 trillion dollars a year cost will go to millionaires. America has roughly 14 million millionaires. This includes those in congress. The average net worth of a congress member is $1.4 million. All combined totals would be roughly $20 trillion. So by adding all millionaires and billionaires net wealth together, we have roughly gathered no more than $25 trillion. The taxes collected from these two groups are depleted.
Growing your wealth in the Trump Economy Part 1
Oct 16 2019 30 mins
Podcast 99There is a great deal of political chatter in America right now. We have heard impeachment constantly. We all know about Hunter Biden. CNN hates Trump. ABC uses video footage from Kentucky and said that it was Syria. Many news items are thrown at us daily. That is why I wanted to present a different podcast to you. Podcast 99 will cover something personal. Let’s take some time to talk about you and your money. Join the Front Porch to discuss how you can grow your wealth in the Trump economy of today. Growing your wealth in the Trump EconomyLike him or not Donald Trump has been good for your wallet. Jobs are at historic rates. Unemployment is also at 3.5%. If you want to work in America today it is pretty easy. Finding a job is not a problem. I also want to take a moment to present some facts to you. The current inflation rate (2018 to 2019) is now 1.71%. The reason this is important is that the income growth rates from the same period is 3.2%. In other words, incomes are rising faster than inflation. You would not get those type numbers in a socialist economy. This economy is primed for you to gain wealth. Since President Trump’s inauguration, the Dow Jones has increased by 35%. The economy is strong despite what the media is telling you. Media pundits may say recession. True it could happen. Anything can happen for that matter. Given the facts I have presented in Podcast 99, let us now look at you. Are you in better financial shape than in 2016? If not, why? Was it because of our economy or you? If you find that you are still struggling to gain wealth you found the right podcast. Let us get started at the basics. Growing your wealth: Your expensesFirst, if you are spending more than you make, stop. Any financial planner worth their salt will tell you that you cannot spend your way out of debt. My recommendations are to join the Front Porch Finances class by using the code 88n3vj. You can also find a link here.

Millennials Love of Socialism: Losing Their Freedom for Free Stuff
Oct 12 2019 30 mins
Podcast 98The American culture is changing with newer generations. Research conducted by Gallup has discovered that 51% of millennials prefer socialism. With an older generation getting ready to pass the torch why are millennials in love with Socialism? Front Porch Politics will discuss the history of Socialism. Podcast 98 will discuss the Millenial love for Socialism, and why the history of Socialism may save our country from Socialist Democrats.America’s Millennial Love of SocialismAmericans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century. Current American citizens were asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.The History of SocialismThe history of socialism has its origins in the 1789 French Revolution. Socialism came from the changes which it brought, although it has precedents in earlier movements and ideas. The Communist Manifesto was written by Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels in 1848. This was written just before the Revolutions of 1848 swept Europe. In the last third of the 19th century, social democratic parties arose in Europe, drawing mainly from Marxism. The Australian Labor Party was the world’s first elected socialist party when it formed government in 1899.The Soviet Union and the communist parties around the world mainly came to represent socialism in terms of the Soviet model of economic development and the creation of centrally planned economies. Socialism was a state that owns all the means of production. People argued that capitalism had been abolished. Socialist governments established a mixed economy with partial nationalizations and social welfare.History of Socialism in AmericaIn the Presidential election of 1912, Eugene V. Debs received 5.99% of the popular vote . while his total of 913,693 votes in the 1920 campaign, although smaller percentage-wise, remains the all-time high for a Socialist Party candidate in the United States. The election of 2020 stands to prove if this number will be broken. Millennials’ love of Socialism has rebirthed itself.In the United States, the Communist Party USA was formed in 1919 from former members of the Socialist Party of America. One of the founders, James Cannon, later became the leader of Trotskyist forces outside the Soviet Union. During the Great Depression America saw a rise in socialism on a national scale. The socialism that was birthed in American did not resemble the socialism of today’s millennials.
A Cold Civil War and the Divide Impeachment has on America
Oct 05 2019 30 mins
Podcast 97Impeachment has been thrown around in America for the last three years. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have demanded the impeachment of President Trump virtually since he was inaugurated into office. The results of the 2016 election have bugged them since the American people passed the torch from a more socialist worldview president. The thoughts of losing power have eclipsed their common sense. Podcast 97 discusses impeachment and how this has caused a bigger divide into our country which is leading to a Cold Civil War in America.What Exactly is Impeachment?If you were to ask the average America citizen most could not tell you what impeachment is. Most of those in the Gen Z crowd think that it will automatically remove President Trump from office. Some would even think it may put Hillary Clinton in the White House. As students of history, my front porch family knows this is not true. Front Porch Politics always wants to pontificate. I do my best to show off my pedagogical skills. So what is impeachment?Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official. Contrary to many beliefs, impeachment does not remove the official from office. Impeachment is the equivalent to an indictment in criminal law. It is only the statement of charges against the official. The glorious revolution Socialist Democrats in our country envision will not be solved simply by impeachment.After Impeachment has Taken PlaceDemocrats have struggled to find a reason to actually impeach the president. For example, Al Green of Texas has asked for impeachment several times on the House floor. All which have failed. Today we find ourselves again hearing the battle cry of impeachment as Democrats cry foul over a phone call to Ukraine. What if this impeachment demand is successful? Will Hillary placed in the White House? Not quite.Once an individual is impeached, they must then face the possibility of conviction on the charges by a legislative vote. A vote which has yet to be taken on the House floor. The Speaker of the House can call for an official vote. Nancy Pelosi is yet to do so. Instead, she has told the American people how she constantly regrets having to do this. Front Porch family you can see this is all bull. If she was so heartbroken why allow such questionable acts. Adam Schiff is now mired in controversy. This impeachment is about one thing. Doing away with what you think. Pelosi has made it clear. If you oppose her party, you will suffer.Impeachment is Leading to a Cold Civil WarWhile Pelosi can lie about her intentions one thing is clear. If you want to seek office as an outsider you are wrong. This is a clear shot at anyone who opposes her agenda. If you commit to draining the swamp you will be reprimanded. Maxine Watters has even carried it a step further. She accused President Trump of trying to start a Civil War.
“A Just Society” Alexandria Ocasio Cortez New Socialist Plan for America
Oct 02 2019 33 mins
Podcast 96Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has published her new plan for America. “A Just Society” is the plan’s name. This plan includes giving illegals who may come into our country’s government benefits and social and cultural rights. Benefits like retirement, welfare, health insurance, post-secondary education, and public housing. This “A Just Society” is a larger push for Socialism in America. Podcast 96 will discuss AOC’s plans to make our country the United Socialist States of America.AOC’s Plans to Make America a Socialist CountryThere is no doubt that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants America to be a Socialist country. She is the media darling of Socialism herself. She came into office under the disguise of a person who wanted to save the Earth. Save the Earth from Climate Change that is. We all remember the debacle with the Green New Deal. A plan to spend over $90 trillion in ten years. It was later revealed that this plan was only developed to push America towards one thing. The push to Socialism was the ultimate goal. Not saving the planet. Not making your life better. Let us not forget also this is the representative who daily calls President Trump corrupt. All while her PAC sponsor and campaign advisor had to resign over campaign corruption accusations. Saikat Chakrabarti has gone into hiding after being accused of misusing almost $1 million in campaign funds. Chakrabarti is an extreme Socialist. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Plan for AmericaYou have now been given a quick rundown of what AOC’s corrupt past has been in two short years in congress. To further the unjust acts of this freshman congresswoman, now she has introduced a new plan for America. A plan she titles “A Just Society.” I am sure that justice warriors are foaming at the mouth for this. Listen to Why I love America!A Just Society makes you think that America is not just. That is the viewpoint of AOC and her squad. They will tell you that America has never been a just country. The Judeo-Christian values that our country was founded on is cruel. Nevermind the prosperity that America has brought to the world. Forget that she has been given the ability to achieve dreams she may have had. Oh no, America is bad, and AOC is going to make it good.Let us as a Front Porch Family now take time to dissect Ocasio-Cortez’s new plan. A plan to tax you at a much higher rate. And give privilege to those who break our countries laws.A Just Society: The Mercy In Re-entry ActThe first part of AOC’s Just America includes a
Impeach Trump the Battle Cry of Pelosi, Schiff, and Socialist Democrats
Sep 28 2019 30 mins
Podcast 95September 2019 has been an eventful month in the world of politics. We have had a George Soros backed little girl telling us the world is ending. That is not the biggest story. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have now called for the impeachment of President Trump. Adam Schiff even completely made up his own story. Podcast 95 will discuss the plans to impeach President Trump over Ukraine and how this is a failing battle cry of the Democrats.Put Yourself In Donald Trump’s ShoesImagine for a moment you are working in a company. You have been accused of offering a bribe to a boss to advance in the company. You did not do this. All the while, another employee actually did this. Not only did they do it, but they also confessed to doing so. Co-workers then use secondhand knowledge of providing “proof” you did this. They give it to the supervisor who had received bribes already. You may be possibly be fired for the accusations against you. You are dedicated to the company and want it to be the best. This is the current state of politics in our country for Donald Trump. Democrats call for President Trump’s ImpeachmentSpeaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Charging him with betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security. Pelosi accused the president of seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival. Ukraine is the county being spoken of. This is all in connection to a whistleblowers report.What Pelosi did not tell you is that the evidence already exists. She also declared the inquiry before she even read any information. First, let us look at the facts. Since President Trump’s victory, the Dems have sought to take him out. They cannot stand that Hillary Clinton lost. They also hate you. That’s right, you. This socialist-leaning party is completing leaving the American people.Pelosi’s calls to Impeach TrumpNegative Nancy held a presser to describe into detail about why she wants Trump impeached. I could have more respect for these folks if they would just call it like it was. They hate Trump. They hate he has an American first point-of-view. And they hate you for supporting him. I would rather Democrats be honest than to lie every day about their motive.Pelosi took the microphone to state: “The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution.” President Trump, she added, “must be held accountable. No one is above the law.” I’m glad the Dems keep saying this. Obviously, they do not believe it. If they did, Ilhan Omar would be out of congress. She stands accused of tax evasion and immigration fraud. Not one Democrat has called her out on this. Impeachment of Trump is on their brain, including Adam Schiff.Adam Schiff Shifts into Liar ModeAdam Schiff is not a man of integrity.
Climate Change And the Panic of Greta Thunberg at the United Nations
Sep 25 2019 30 mins
Podcast 94Monday we were lectured by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg. Boosting her to near David Hogg status on the Fake News media channels. Just do a Google search for Climate Change or global warming, and you will see story after story of Thunberg. The Climate Change discussion will be part of our 2020 election no doubt. Podcast 94 will discuss Climate Change, Greta Thunberg, and the End of the World.Climate Change and the End of the WorldThere is a new narrative that has been pushed in our media. Socialist politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has constantly told us that we only have 12 years left. The narrative is that we must completely remove cars, jets, and farting cows. Not doing so will cause catastrophic extension on Earth of life as we know it. This narrative is being pushed on children such as Greta Thunberg.Before we begin this podcast I would like to remind you of something. I believe the climate changes. It is my believe that mankind can affect his environment. I love nature, and I love God’s creation. It is because I believe it is God’s creation. I believe it is arrogant of us to think we are in control. God owns this planet. He is in control. While he did give us free will, he expected us to treat it with respect.Climate Change is a Push to SocialismThe whole basis for the climate change battle cry is not for our environment. It is more of a push towards making America a socialist country. Remember what Hilter would say. Tell a lie long enough and people would start to believe it. This lie all starts at a target audience of course. The target audience is children. Schools were rushed a copy of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” where he told of the destruction of our planet.So who can save us from destroying ourselves? According to modern thinking, big government. Advocates for big government take over of industries want a very communistic style government. These advocates are AOC and any 2020 Democrat candidate. Most conservatives seem terrified to take on this discussion. They are afraid they will be labeled as uncaring. I believe in truth so let us first discuss the Green New Deal.The Green New Deal and Climate ChangeMany 2020 presidential candidates have started pushing for initiatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Green New Deal. A 92 trillion dollar program that would cripple the American economy. To refresh your memory let me remind you of some key points of this plan.In ten year the United States is supposed to upgrading all existing buildings” in the country for energy efficiency. Eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. All while supporting family farms and promoting universal access to healthy food. Overhaul the transportation systems to reduce emissions. Including expanding electric car manufacturing, building “charging stations everywhere,” and expanding high-speed rail to “a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.”This, in short,
The Third Democrat Debate: Analysis of Racism, Socialism, and No Guns
Sep 14 2019 30 mins
Podcast 93Thursday night was not just a dramatic night on Big Brother. For those of you who were not tuned into the BB household, the third Democrat debate was on ABC. Staying true to the “unbiased” stance ABC is known for, a panel of liberal Democrats questioned the liberal Democrat 2020 candidates. Candidates like Joe Biden, Julian Castro, Beto O’Rourke, and others. Podcast 93 will discuss the third Democrat debate full of accusations of racism, the push of Socialism, and we must have no guns in society. How America will lose if President Trump doesn’t win.Third Democrat Presidential DebateThe third night of debate for the Democrat nomination was held Thursday night. Many of you may not have watched this debate and that was smart. I watched most of the debate. My wife and I did spend time flipping between Big Brother and the Debate. The first obvious red flag to me was the moderators. Let me remind you that the DNC has refused to let Fox News host a debate.That being said the moderators were throwing softballs all night to the candidates. The moderators included Linsey Davis, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir, and Jorge Ramos. All four of which are strong Democrat supporters. Jorge Ramos was there for one reason. To tell the viewers that Donald Trump was a racist. So let us begin the Front Porch discussion with one of his questions to Pete Buttigieg on racism.Racist: A Catch Phrase of the Democratic DebateRamos asked the question “Do you think people who support President Trump and his immigration policy are racist?” Pete Buttigieg the Mayor of South Bend made a profound statement to any conservative. If you support immigration laws you are a racist and support racism. Let me also remind you that the immigration laws are not President Trumps. The Immigration Law is the law of the United States. Some of the candidates on stage are the very people in Washington who could change this law, but yet they have not. Buttigieg was quick to answer that “anyone who supports this is supporting racism.” So by Buttigieg standards all of America is racist. I know what you are thinking, how ridiculous. This is a tone that is put in place on purpose. Beto O’Rourke supported this claim of racism.Beto O’Rourke | | Podcast 93: The Third Democrat Debate Robert Francis stated that we can mark the creation of this country not as July 4th, 1776. We mark it as 1619. He, of course, goes on to talk about how this was when the first slaves were brought to our contin...
May We Never Forget September 11th
Sep 11 2019 4 mins
Podcast 92May we never forget the September 11th attacks were coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorists against the United States. The attacks took place on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Podcast 92 will remember the day Islamic terrorists attacked the United States.Nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger airlines. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, crashed into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed. Debris and the fires caused a partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex. This included the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia.Flight 93 on September 11th | May We Never ForgetUnited Airlines Flight 93 was initially flown toward Washington, D.C. Flight 93 crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers thwarted the Islamic terrorist hijackers. 9/11 is the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed.Let us always remember that freedom is not free. May we never forget what took place on September 11th. Always pause to honor those who fight for our freedom every day. As we remember September 11th, be thankful. Be thankful for freedom, family, and faith. Thank you for listening to podcast 92. God bless you, and may God bless America.
Don’t Give Up Your Guns
Sep 07 2019 30 mins
Podcast 91The 2020 Democrat presidential candidates have started to criticize some of you who listen. They tell you that you do not have the right to own guns. Some candidates suggest the ATF buy back and confiscation of your guns. The 2nd Amendment gives you the right to bear arms. Podcast 91 will look into the push to abolish your rights and why you don’t give up your guns.In the wake of the recent deadly mass shootings, Democratic presidential candidates are stepping up calls for the federal government to start buying firearms from gun owners, with Beto O’Rourke and others going as far as seeking a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons.The 2nd Amendment: Don’t Give Up Your GunsThe 2nd Amendment is part of the primary fabric of our Constitution. As essential as the First Amendment, the Second Amendment was protection on many fronts. The Second Amendment states:“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”2nd Amendment of The ConstitutionTo put into perspective why our founders gave us the Second Amendment let’s remember what they had lived through. Under British rule, the colonies had been suppressed from an overzealous government. These men gave up everything for freedom. God, Guns, and GutsThe founding fathers fought for freedom. Freedom that many in America take for granted today. I have always held to the belief that God, Guns, and Guts made our county great. All three are necessary. To expand on my point let me remind you of what Japan’s Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said about America before World War II. Yamamoto stated, “You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”Our founders knew we would have enemies both foreign and domestic. The 2nd Amendment was crucial for the protection of the people of this country. That is until this “woke” generation came along. The Millenial and Gen Z group want guns confiscated. They want you defenseless from criminals.Speaking of criminals. 93% of gun committed crimes are by those who are not NRA members. To add to this statistic six-in-ten gun-related deaths in the U.S. were suicides. So it’s not the guns fault. What we have is a heart and mental health problem in our country.The Real Gun Issue in AmericaMental health is becoming more and more apparent in our country. True that stats from our past may not be accurate due to misdiagnosis. It is of no surprise that those who have a mental health issue use guns inappropriately. So would taking away all guns solve the problem? No. That is a very stern no. It would not solve our crime problem either.Common sense tells you that if you take guns away from law-abiding citizens that only criminals will have them.
Was Jesus a Socialist?
Sep 04 2019 30 mins
Podcast 90According to many liberals whom I have encountered they say that I am a hypocrite. Not because I believe in gun ownership and family values. Not because I am pro-life. I am told I am a hypocrite because I am a Christian. Their defense is that they believe Jesus was a socialist. So therefore since I am a capitalist, I am truly not a believer in Christianity. According to these folks, I do not know the person I worship, and they do not. Podcast 90 will discuss was Jesus a Socialist? A look into what Jesus commanded and taught in the New Testament.Who was Jesus Christ?To begin the podcast I wanted to take just a moment to clarify something. Some podcast listeners are Christian. Many may be Jewish. Some may be Muslim or even Athiest. Being a conservative does not mean you have to be a Christian. Frankly, Christianity can be broken down into Protestant and Catholic. Inside those two subgroups are even more subgroups. To prevent stereotyping I will share my point of view. My faith is Protestant Baptist Christianity. Those who share my faith believe that Jesus Christ was God’s son. He died for the sins of all mankind. This eliminates racism accusation. Christ also rose from the dead and promised his believers resurrection also. The Bible is God’s word and the only doctrine for faith.In the Bible, we learn of Jesus compassion, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, and salvation. Notice I did not mention the word Socialism anywhere. Somehow the liberals I have encountered have made “Socialism” the first word when they learn I am a Christian. Typically one of the first statements made is “You know Jesus was a Socialist.” I usually reply, “No, I was unaware of this.” They will then enlighten me of someone they disavow, and I have studied most of my life.Socialism Properly DefinedTo get an accurate answer to our question, we need to define socialism. Socialism is the concentration of power into the hands of government elites to achieve the following purposes: central planning of the economy and the radical redistribution of wealth. Today it is disguised in bills such as The Green New Deal and the Equality Act. It is cheered by those who constantly attack the rich and tell you that your “oppression” is because of successful people. Socialism does not work. I have stated this multiple times in previous podcast. Even the Unicorn kingdom that Bernie Sanders envisions is nothing more than Communism light. It destroys economies, countries, and freedom. Sure, sounds exactly like what Jesus preached to his followers. I hope you can detect my sarcasm. Was Jesus a Socialist in his Teaching?Nowhere in the New Testament does Jesus advocate for the government to punish the r...
Who is Ilhan Omar? The Congresswoman may be Ilhan Nur Said Elmi
Aug 31 2019 30 mins
Podcast 89FBI statistics reveal that Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, which is represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar, who may actually be Ilhan Nur Said Elmi, and includes the urban area of Minneapolis, is the jurisdiction with the highest rate of terrorist recruitment in the United States. How did America get to this point? Podcast 89 will discuss who is Ilhan Elmi, and what is happening in Minnesota?Who is Ilhan Elmi?Ilhan Omar is a name that is being tossed around many political conversations every week. Even here on Front Porch Politics, we have discussed radical, anti-Semitic statements she has made. New details have opened the flood gates for questions as to who she really it. This is not a story you will see in any mainstream media. As a matter of fact, I doubt many even questions who she is. Like any other liberal progressive socialist we as conservatives are told we are being racist if we ask any questions. But being one who is not a racist, and wants the truth, I wanted to ask the question. So let me give you a little background. Ilhan Omar’s real name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi. Her family split up in 1995 when three of her siblings were granted asylum by the United Kingdom. These family members included Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is the brother that Omar allegedly married in 2009 and divorced in 2017.Not to mention that reporting from the Minnesota Sun uncovered that this marriage was part of massive immigration fraud against the United States. Wanting truth I emailed Ilhan Omar’s office about this question. Politicians should be transparent right? Not to my surprise, I did not receive a response. Let us use common sense here. The representatives in congress work for us, the American people. However, Omar thinks she only works for those in her district.Omar and the Alabama GOPThe previous referenced statement is from a tweet Omar put out about the Alabama Republican Party. The Alabama GOP is urging the state’s congressional delegation to begin the process of expelling freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar from Congress. This is in accordance with Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution.So how did Omar reply? She tweeted “Sorry, Alabama GOP, but this is a representative democracy, I was elected with 78% of the vote by the people of Minnesota’s 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party.” So make it clear that according to Omar she is not a representative of the United States, only her district. So let us discuss Omar and her district.Ilhan Elmi Omar and Minnesota 5th Congressional District Minnesota is reported to have the highest Somali population in the United States,
Recession: The New Word of the Week for the Media
Aug 24 2019 30 mins
Podcast 88The media pundits like Bill Maher has been constantly telling their viewers America’s financial days are numbered. The catchphrase has been a Recession. Each day some pundit will be on the news or channel asking “is America headed for a Recession?” Podcast 88 will discuss the possibility of a Recession in America, how America is not headed for a recession, and how this is all a hype to beat Donald Trump in 2020.What is a Recession?Before we discuss all the talk surrounding America’s impending doom from the left, let me tell you what a Recession is. A recession is a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters. Recession is not something physical you can put your hand on like a car. It is simply a term used to describe the economics of a country.So let us as common sense people look at the GDP numbers. The first quarter GDP saw America at a growth of 3.1%. This is up from 2.2% from the previous quarter of 2018. So first we have seen an increase in our GDP. The purpose of telling you this is to show that we would have to have the next two quarter GDP numbers to drop consecutively to shows signs of a Recession. While I am not saying this is not possible, I do not feel it is practical.Driving forces for the Recession discussionFirst, we need to understand the driving force behind the trigger word Recession. That is force is the 2020 election. The socialist democrats thought Trump would not win number one. When he did win they had an “insurance policy” known as Russian Collusion. When that did not work they then turned to “racism.” They call the president and his supporters white nationalist. But considering that people of all colors support this president, that has fallen flat also. The true racist like AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar have been exposed, and the racism card fell apart. Now the socialist democrats are going to their playbook of next move. They realize that their only shot to defeat Donald Trump is to kill the economy. And believe me that they are going to work like hell to do so.The Media Wants a RecessionMedia pundits have cheered recession for a few weeks now. Even those like the great economist Bill Maher are stating that he ...
Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar’s Publicity Stunt with Israel
Aug 21 2019 30 mins
Podcast 87This last week Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar publically stated they wanted to go to Israel. Tlaib and Omar could have both went on an earlier congressional trip. However, they decided not to go, and go with a group which has known to have terrorist ties. The two “squad” members have shown to be anti-semites and now are made because Israel would not let them enter their country. Podcast 87 will discuss Israel’s ban on the two Congressmembers and how this was one big publicity stunt. Rashida Tlaib the AntisemiteRashida Tlaib is starting to gain more attention as a member of the socialist squad. Famous for her comments about President Trump where she promised to “impeach the mother f**ker.” Tlaib now is mad because she was not allowed to go to Isreal and visit with her grandmother. The problem is with how Tlaib and Omar filed their paperwork.In filing their paperwork both congresswomen stated they were traveling to Palestine. Palestine is not a country. This whole deal is just a publicity stunt to make these two relevant. They constantly want attention. And in my opinion, they do not have America’s best interest at heart. Ask yourself this question. Did you ever think that we would people in congress who would want the destruction of Israel? Don’t be fooled. These two do not want a two-state system in the middle east. They want the destruction of Israel completely. Remember who Tlaib’s counterpart was in this. Ilhan Omar played a part in this stunt also.Troubles with Ilhan OmarYou all know who Ilhan Omar is. She possibly married her brother, and her citizenship could be called into question. The same person who we have written about who called Jesus a Palestine. Remeber she tweeted that any person in America showing support for Isreal was “all about the Benjamins.” Omar who accuses anyone who supports our country, or president of being a white supremacist. And did I mention that she had the rules changed in our statehouse so she could wear her headdress? Omar who tweeted “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” The “some people did something” Ilhan Omar. I’m sure she has Israels best interest at heart. Anyone with half a brain and common sense would see that she is dangerous. It has nothing to do with her skin color or gender. It is all about what she stands for. That being said I support Isreal. I support their decision to keep these two out of their country.I know I am on a soapbox here,
Who Killed Jeffery Epstein?
Aug 17 2019 30 mins
Podcast 86This last weekend we all heard the news that Jeffery Epstein had committed suicide in his maximum security jail cell. This may have been a surprise to some, and not to others. The criminal charges that Epstein faced was no doubt going to put him in prison for the rest of his life. After his death, social media and news agencies started to ask a serious question. Did Jeffery Epstein kill himself? This question is a valid one knowing his connections. Epstein had dirt on a lot of people including Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton. Podcast 86 will discuss who killed Jeffery Epstein and who may be on the shortlist of culprits. The new sex trafficking and conspiracy charges alleged that he paid girls as young as 14 for sex and used them to recruit other girls between 2002 and 2005. Federal prosecutors in New York filed new charges in the case amid growing anger over the 2008 deal that allowed Epstein to plead guilty in Florida to lesser charges and serve just 13 months in prison, during which he was allowed to leave custody for 12 hours a day, six days a week to work from his private office.The 2008 deal also shielded any potential co-conspirators from prosecution, effectively ending the investigation at that time. But Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who is pursuing the investigation, has argued that the Florida deal does not apply to his office.The Royal Family: Who killed Jeffery EpsteinBritain’s Prince Andrew has been named as one of the customers of Epstein. Prince Andrew, who allegedly earned his rhyming nickname, Randy Andy, for his energetic bedroom calisthenics, is now in hot water.A friend of the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Prince Andrew has long been accused of taking sexual liberties with Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Giuffre now 35, claims she once served as a “sex slave” of Epstein’s.Starting at age 15, she alleges, she was forced to service Epstein’s rich and powerful pals, including Andrew. The prince has always denied the allegations, and Buckingham Palace has repeatedly called them “categorically untrue.”A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said in a statement, “It is emphatically denied that The Duke of York [Prince Andrew] had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts [Giuffre]. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”The person who could definitively state that Prince Andrew was innocent is now dead. While rumors have circulated about Epstein’s death I do not believe that the royal family had him killed. I’m not being a skeptic here. I know that MI6 could pull something like this off. I do not believe that we would have to have a deep cover-up with multiple countries involved. A family in our country has been known to have people connected to them mysteriously die. Let me introduce you to the Clintons. The Clintons: Who killed Jeffery Epstein Bill and Hillary Clinton have always had controversy surrounding them. Bill Clinton is a hound we all know that. Hillary is no doubt a bitty. Thanks to this family we have developed new terms...
Looney Left: Socialist Democrats Response to Shootings in America
Aug 10 2019 30 mins
Podcast 85Two tragedic shootings have taken place this last weekend in America. The looney left was quick to try to capitalize on the tragedy. The socialist democrats call President Trump a racist in their attacks. While the Socialist Democrats and the drive-by media blame Trump for the mass shootings. They ignore the 2nd shooter. The Dayton, Ohio shooter was a Socialist. He was also an Elizabeth Warren fan. Podcast 85 will discuss how the looney left has taken the torch to gain money, and blame President Trump.Beto O’Rourke: The Looney Left Socialist Democrat Potty MouthRobert Francis was quick to respond to the shooting which took place in his home state of Texas. When asked if there was anything the president could do he cursed to reply. “What do you think? You know the sh*t he has been saying.” Robert Francis then continues to ask, “member’s of the press, what the f*ck.”Beto has a strong vocabulary. I know, most of you don’t care that he drops the f-bomb. Remember this is a man who says that the president does not act very presidential. Robert Francis also accuses President Trump of promoting racism. This is a lie. Truth be known, Robert Francis is a looney left that lies. He lies in mass amounts. What he spews is typically to borrow a word from Beto himself, shit. The interview ends with an accusation of the president inciting violence. Again, this is a lie. The proud socialist democrats continued their accusation. Not to be outdone, Corey Booker ends stage left.Corey Booker: Looney Left Socials Democrat WannabeCorey Booker again regurgitates the looney left theme. Donald Trump is responsible. Let me ask you a question. As conservative, common sensed Americans, did you blame Obama when mass shootings took place? President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. I do not recall the media blaming Obama. Neither do I remember the democrats accusing him of racism. It’s all political hack. Booker was not finished.Booker goes on to accuse the president of stoking fear, hatred, and bigotry. Let me be clear. Conservative do not hate people. As American’s we want everyone to do great. The democrat party has nothing to run on as a platform. Under President Trump, we have had record high minority unemployment. Under Obama, we had record-high food stamps. Which one makes people more fearful? Freedom, financial security, and independence from the government. Or high taxes, government dependency, and lack of respect for police. Yes, I said it. In my humble opinion, race relations grew worse under Obama. Booker ends his interview with accusing the President of not condemning white supremacy. Much like his buddy Beto, Booker is a liar. I know that you know this already, but just for your viewing pleasure. Boom two looney left that has been proven liars....
Second Democrat Presidential Debate: An Analysis
Aug 03 2019 30 mins
Podcast 84This last week the second Democrat debates were held. The candidates want to make sure you know three things. One, Donald Trump is a racist. Two, white people and white privilege are the problem in America. Three, socialism is what will save all of us. Podcast 84 will give an analysis of the Second Democrat Presidential Debate.Second Democrat Presidential DebateLet me begin by stating that I grew up in a Democrat home. It is also important for me to state I am a Conservative. Both parties in our country have let the American people down. That being said the party that my parents supported for years does not exist anymore. This is evident in the terrible ideas spewed from the candidates on the stage of both nights of this last weeks debates.President Trump is called a RacistBoth nights of the Democratic debate showcase candidates who constantly want to call our president racist. A president who is not married to a white woman, and is also married to an immigrant. The accusations are on the heels of President Trump being critical of Elijah Cummings and Baltimore.President Trump tweeted about Baltimore, rats, and the city’s political leadership have roiled Washington and prompted another round of cries of “racism” from the usual race hustlers. But rather than focus on whether or not Trump is a racist, how about we focus on the man’s words. Are they true? Yes. Yes, they are.Baltimore is a Problematic CityBaltimore is a very problematic city itself. In 2017, 13 high schools in the city of Baltimore were found to have zero students who were proficient in math. And out of the 3,804 students in all who took the state math proficiency test, only 14 were proficient.And then, there are the rats, the mention by Trump. He claimed that Baltimore is “rat-infested,” causing some left-wing pundits to claim he was using code to refer to “black and brown people.” Yet, once again, the issue is whether he was right. And he was. The city has a very real rat infestation problem.Baltimore’s rats have long been the subject of commentary in the news and on social media. Everyone from Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders to Ben Carson has discussed this problem. Baltimore’s former Mayor Catherine Pugh (who resigned in May amid federal and state corruption investigations) have been outed on the web for having publicly commented on the city’s filth and squalor in years past. A 2018 video surfaced of Pugh touring her miserable city and nearly gagging on her own words as she exclaimed, “You can smell the rats … Oh my God, you can smell the dead animals.”President Trump was not making racist statements.
Who Wrote the Mueller Report? I Don’t Think it was Robert Mueller
Jul 27 2019 19 mins
Podcast 83Like many of you, I watched this week as Robert Mueller stammered and struggled through his testimony to the House members. I for one felt sorry for Mueller. He looked like a sickly old man who wanted to yell at kids for being on his front lawn. All that being said, the hearings left me with one question. Who wrote the Mueller Report? I don’t think it was Robert Mueller. Topics we will discuss on Podcast 83.Robert Mueller’s Report and His TestimonyThe biggest conclusion I reached after watching Robert Mueller in front of Congress was that he did not have a detailed knowledge of the report issued in his name. My evidence for this is clear. When he said he never asked his team their political views, I believe him.Mueller failed to answer nearly 200 questions. He contradicted his report and his letters to Attorney General William Barr. Robert Mueller frequently was not familiar with citations from his report. And he seemed inept. We have learned a new phrase to add to any question we are asked. “It is not in my purview.” (Listen to the clip in podcast 83)Mueller’s Report and today’s political ClimateRobert Mueller has been heralded for two years or more as this man of upstanding integrity. I find this a contradiction. True he may have wanted to do what is best for our country. However, a man of integrity would never continue to draw a paycheck when he learns what he is investigating is a hoax. A man of integrity would also want to know all of the truth. Truths were left out of this report.Evidence that is clear to the American people was omitted or just ignored. How do you not investigate information on the Clinton campaign, the Steels Dossier, or even hiring anti-Trump prosecutors? Americans want the truth. If laws were broken we want those who break the laws held accountable. However, people like Jerry Nadler proved he has a double standard.Jerry Nadler and the Mueller ReportWhat was vomited multiple times by the Dem’s? The phrase “no one is above the law.” I agree with this statement. However, if no one is above the law, why do they fight for those breaking our laws? We cant use the word illegal because it is called “inhumane” or “harsh.” Every day those who are above our laws cross our border with no consequence.Just the thought of a border wall or deporting those who recklessly mock our laws is called racist. Jerry Nadler has a double standard. Nadler also only wants laws applied when it benefits him politically. Mueller’s Report was supposed to work to Nadler’s favor. It failed miserably. Robert Mueller’s miscalculationRobert Mueller had come of age in an era of professional responsibility and did not realize he now lived in an era of harsh,
Beware The Democrat Agenda and Ilhan Omar wants Abortions for Illegals
Jul 24 2019 17 mins
Podcast 82Representative Ilhan Omar is now demanding that the American people pay for illegals to have abortions. This growing narrative is unpopular with the American people, and with Trump supporters. Now the Democrat party has cowered down to socialist people like Omar. Podcast 82 will discuss why conservatives should beware the Democrat agenda and Ilhan Omar wants abortions for illegals.Conservatives I have a question for you. Conservatives stand for the right to life. This is a cornerstone to our platform. If that is the case why are we allowing people in congress who support the murder of babies? The same folks who tell us that say calling someone illegal is a human rights violation are for killing babies. They say we break U.N. laws and want to remove our national sovereignty. The same group doubles down and tells you and me that our president is racist. A member of this group, Rashida Tlaib, hates our president. But as a matter of fact she tweeted:Well, well, well…who was the racist, sexist back in 2015? That's @RashidaTlaib I guess @realDonaldTrump gets his #MeToo moment now 😂😂 https://t.co/1fYRtga7i3— Front Porch Politics (@FrontPorchRep) July 24, 2019 Nancy Pelosi is not asking to censure Tlaib. Tlaib hates white people and wants them deported. Tlaib not being called a racist, why? There is a double standard. This is why conservatives need to beware the Democrat agenda set by the socialist. Double standards can also be found in Ilhan Omar.Ilhan Omar wants Americans to pay for Abortions for IllegalsSounds like it’s time for another ‘show of hands’ question for 2020 Democrats on the debate stage: Raise your hand if you agree with Rep. Ilhan Omar that American taxpayers have a responsibility to fund abortions for illegal immigrants. Below is our evidence:No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care.https://t.co/bGuaS64HkL— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) July 22, 2019 Some people objected that Omar wasn’t making that explicit argument. But she was. Omar is unequivocally in support of repealing the Hyde Amendment barring taxpayer funding of most abortions. Omar is actively in favor of the State paying to terminate pregnancies for women who can’t afford abortions. She opposes popular measures to restrict late-term abortions. Combine those stances with her tweet above,
Democrat Socialist: Racist that exist in America
Jul 20 2019 30 mins
Podcast 81This week President Donald Trump and his supporters were deemed racist. The Democrat “Socialist Squad” have held news conferences calling the President a racist for a single tweet. Nevermind the body of work he had given his whole life or the fact we have the lowest unemployment for African-America, Asian America, and Hispanic America. They ignore these facts and just create lies. Podcast 81 will discuss why Democrat Socialist is the real racist that exist in America.The Real Racist SquadRepresentatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Talib, and Ayanna Pressley are all members of what they have so named “the squad.” These ladies were elected to Congress in 2018. They say that they all are fighting for justice and equality. However, there is a more sinister plan. According to the squad, America’s is racist because it does not support their socialist ideas. If you oppose anything they do, immediately accusations of racism will appear.Nancy Pelosi tried to stifle some of the rhetoric they were spewing. This rhetoric was literally splitting the Democrat party. Pelosi is the god-mother of the old school Dem’s. She could not watch her party to lose its chance to defeat Donald Trump. So what did the squad do? The squad all called her a racist. Before we begin I want to clarify something. Pelosi is not a racist. Donald Trump is not a racist. I am not a racist. The Democrat Socialist have shown they are racist that exist in America.Trump Unites the Dems under the Socialist BannerDonald Trump came to Nancy Pelosi’s defense. Trump simply may have wanted to clarify that she was not a racist. My opinion is that Trump was making a political maneuver. A maneuver to reunite the Democrat party under the new banner of socialism. This plan worked. As soon as Trump tweeted, democrats from all across the country came to the squad’s defense. A resolution was even passed in the House this week to condemn the words of the president.Pelosi deemed his tweet racist. Votes were counted. The resolution passed. Far-leftist cheered it as a victory. And then the spit hit the fan. Trump reacts and makes a statement. The squad then ups the rhetoric of racism. It’s an endless cycle. A cycle that Donald J. Trump will win. Trust me on this one. The Democrat Socialist will be shown to be the real racist that exist in America.Donald Trump’s supposed racist Tweet
Democrat Socialists and the French Revolution
Jul 13 2019 30 mins
Podcast 80There is an old saying. “Those Who Do Not Learn History Are Doomed To Repeat It.” This saying can be found to be very true. The United States of America can learn a great lesson from this statement. No, I do not want to carry you down a comparison of the United States and Rome. Although that could possibly be done. I want to share with you my thoughts on how the Democrat Socialists are using tactics like those in the French Revolution. The similarities of Democrat Socialists and the French Revolution are obvious.The Beginning of the RevolutionLike any country in despair, economics played a part at the beginning of this story. Around Paris, the capital city, the elites of the society were partying hard and living a lavish lifestyle. The “peasants” were working like crazy to pay taxes to maintain this lifestyle. All the while those ruling France was getting the country in a financial mess.Taxes were then raised constantly on the lower-class citizens while those in the upper-classes paid very little to none, and kept on living it up. France was a very different country then. They had a King and Nobel class that ruled. This included aristocracy and the clergy. All of which paid little to no taxes. The workers who were paying the taxes were getting angry.Comparison to Socialist DemocratsTo draw a comparison to the French Revolution would be easy here. What does Democrat Socialist constantly tell us? The rich do not pay their fair share. People like AOC and Bernie Sanders make it sound like those at the “top” of our economy pay nothing while we slave to pay it all. Quite the contrary. The more money you make in America, the more you pay in taxes. As a matter of fact, the top 1 percent accounted for about 37.3 percent of all income taxes paid. This is vastly different from the French government. However, you and I are constantly told by Democrat Socialist they are not paying any taxes. it is to build hatred and rage towards those who are successful. Lies are used to supporting Democrat Socialist claims.Democrat Socialist and Maximilien RobespierreMaximilien Robespierre, remember this name, started to formulate a rebellion to remove the king. His political party the “Jacobins” used fear as a tactic. This fear led to anger in the French general population. The Anger then led to violence. This all came to a head when the Jacobins started calling for a revolution. The National Guard finally took hold of the revolution idea on July 14, 1789.Here is where I would like to insert a few names. Let’s say, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or Ilhan Omar. Any of the three will do.
AOC visits the Border: Says Women Were Told to Drink from Toilets
Jul 06 2019 30 mins
Podcast 79Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, paid a visit to our border this last week. This is all fine and well considering she is a member of congress. Problems have arisen after given her response to her visit. In a statement given in Spanish, she attacks border patrol agents on the job they are doing. Podcast 79 will discuss the AOC visit to the border, and why she may be lying to the American People about detainees drinking from toilets.AOC visit to the BorderNew York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the women being detained told her that Border Patrol agents kept them in cells with no running water. AOC also stated the women had been told to drink out of the toilets. She said that another detained woman described her treatment at the hands of agents as “psychological warfare.”CBP is trying to refute the toilet drinking story by saying their toilets have sinks.The sink in the cell we visited wasn’t functional. Guards told these women,Cuban refugees 🇨🇺, they could drink out of the bowl.This account has been corroborated by other members of Congress. https://t.co/VT99UGZ6Ex— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 4, 2019 The freshman lawmaker was asked by someone off-camera if she witnessed anyone drinking from a toilet, but she declines to answer as she rolled up her window. AOC has also made accusations included charging federal agents with sexual harassment. The Washington Examiner reported that an agent said she mentioned this around them, “Something under her breath, ‘Oh, all these guys in here are gonna f–k me.’” Questions I have for AOCHere is my first question. Did the people being detained break the law? The answer is “yes.” The reason they are being detained is that they tried to enter our country illegally. Let’s make that clear. We have laws and they were broken. Plain and simple. AOC has made it clear that she wants to abolish ICE. She and her socialist friends like Ilhan Omar want to open our borders completely. To add to this it now seems that all Democrat Presidential candidates want to supply illegals with health care paid for by you and I. It’s all hypocrisy. While on one hand, dem’s want to tell you that they are fighting for you. They want wages raised, they want to make the rich pay their fair share.
God Bless America: Land that I Love
Jul 04 2019 6 mins
Podcast 78This podcast will be to the point. The title says it all. I love America. I believe in the phrase God bless America. I also hope that God continues to bless our country this 4th of July. As we gather with family and friends I want us all to remember those who gave so much so we can be free. In honor of those, I wanted to discuss three foundational words to our country. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.LifeThe most precious gift in this world is life. Life is the first unalienable right that our founders said was given by God. Please take note that I said our rights are derived by God, not Government. The government cannot give you life, or should not take it away from an innocent person. The Judeo-Christian values that our founders built this country on still ring true to this day. We are a people of life. Although those in some political factions tell you that not all lives matter, according to our founders they do. As you celebrate this fourth of July remember your life. Remember the loss of life, that many gave freely to set you free. From revolutionary soldiers at Valley Forge fighting for the life of this great country. The soldiers at Gettysburg who fought that all lives county have freedom. To the honorable men and women today that stand each day to make sure we have preserved life. Take time today to remember those, and where your right to life comes from. Liberty Liberty is defined as the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority. The ability to say what you would like given in the first amendment. The ability to own firearms guaranteed by the 2nd amendment. And the 13th amendment which Abolishes slavery, and involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for a crime. Liberty is part of the fabric of American culture. God ordained liberty, and our founders felt it essential to the foundation of our country. The 4th of July is a celebration of liberty. We even have an old cracked bell in Philadelphia that bears the name “The Liberty Bell.” As you see Ol’ Glory wave in the summer breeze today, think of what it means. That under that beautiful banner we have liberty. And as our sacred pledge states, with “Liberty and Justice for All.” Pursuit of HappinessThe final unalienable right written in the Declaration of Independence coincides with the previous two. The pursuit of happiness is not going to take place without life and liberty. My ability to proudly wave my countries colors is part of my pursuit of happiness. Men and women throughout history have bled and died so that we can continue our journey towards happiness.The opposite of happiness is sadness. America grants you the right that if you are unhappy, you can search or pursue happiness in your life. The pursuit of happiness is defined as a fundamental right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence to freely pursue joy and live life in a way that makes you happy, as long as you don’t do anything illegal or violate the rig...
The DNC Presidental Debate: A Sprint Towards Socialism
Jun 29 2019 30 mins
The Democrat National Committee held their first round of debates the last two nights. What we have learned from watching the future Democrat presidential candidate hopefuls is that socialism wins the day. The DNC presidential debate was a sprint toward socialism. It is also clear that Donald Trump is the real winner of the DNC National Debate.Night one of the DNC Presidential DebateThe first night of the DNC presidential debate was a prequel to the pandering of socialism. The night was filled with little electricity as those like Corey Booker and Elizabeth Warren took the stage. While we cannot take time to cover all of the comments made from the first night we would like to give you a short glimpse as to what we did find interesting.Corey Booker at the DNC DebateSpartacus Corey Booker was quick to chime in on several occasions from the Wednesday night debate. He stated that he would not be taking PAC monies. He also stated that he would not be taken corporate monies. Well, let me shine a little light on this subject.New Jersey hosts the headquarters of many major pharmaceutical companies and they have long had good relations with the New Jersey delegations. Booker said in 2017 that he would put “a pause” on accepting money from the industry. In 2016, pharmaceutical PACs gave $57,500 to Booker. Becton, Dickinson & Co, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Sanofi PACs all contributed $5,000 each in 2016. Before that, in 2014, a cycle he was actually running in, Booker’s campaign took in $161,000 in pharmaceutical PAC money. Pfizer contributed $17,500, Merck & Co gave $12,500 and several more gave $10,000 each.Booker also had recent fundraising success with his leadership PAC, Purpose PAC. During the 2018 cycle, the PAC raised more than $1.23 million. So while he is telling you one thing, he is doing another. Elizabeth Warren at the DNC DebateFocahontas was one of two to raise her hand when asked who would abolish their private health insurance in favor of a government-run plan. The only other person to raise their hand was DeBlasio. Elizabeth Warren has swung far left as she has progressed during this campaign.Elizabeth Warren was then asked why she had signed on to the plan proposed by wack-o socialist Bernie Sanders. This was her response.“I’m with Bernie on Medicare for all. There are a lot of politicians who say, oh it’s just not possible, we just can’t do it. They have a lot of political reasons for this. What they are really telling you is they just won’t fight for it.”Elizabeth WarrenWarren then went on to spew the mantra of what has become a Democrat battle cry. “Healthcare is a basic human right.” To me, I scratch my head as to why they want to claim that healthcare is a basic human right, but life is not.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Concentration Camps
Jun 25 2019 30 mins
Podcast 76Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has stuck the people’s foot in her mouth this week when she stated the “United States is running concentration camps at our southern border.” AOC has rejected invitations from Poland to see actual concentration camps. Podcast 76 will discuss how AOC is more like the fascist from the past that she accuses conservatives of being.AOC’s Social Media BlitzkriegNo doubt the use of social media has completely changed the landscape of politics in our country. Now millennials and Gen Z get most of their political news from social media. This has lead to the growth of people like AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar. Real thinkers and knowledgable people who could get business done for our country are replaced by those who can get a lot of followers. AOC made about our detention centers was made via an Instagram live stream. Ocasio-Cortez did not stop there. She then doubled down on her video by making sure those in twitter world heard her also by tweeting the same thing.This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying.This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis ⬇️https://t.co/2dWHxb7UuL— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 18, 2019 The Basis for Ocasio-Cortez Statement on Conentration CampsAOC commented amid news reports that young migrant children are being held at overcrowded facilities. Facilities that lack basic sanitation necessities and pose health issues. Our resources are strained, that is true. As a matter of fact, border patrol agents are donating items such as clothes to the centers to make sure the children are clothed. Many of the children come into America illegally by coyotes in the same clothes they left their home in.Ocasio-Cortez refuses invitation to visit Concentration CampAlan Dershowitz, who recently said he would support Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in 2020, said Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” claim made her a “Holocaust denier.” Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and a determined foe of President Trump criticized her on his show Friday evening: “If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps then it’s going to be very hard to win the election.” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach published a full-page ad in the New York Times.Our full page ad in today’s @nytimes countering @AOC trivialization of the #holocaust. We must fix the humanitarian crisis on the border. But comparing it to the genocide of six million Jews desecrates the memory of the victims and the #NeverAgain commitment against genocide. pic.twitter.com/CKC7fsCRUq— Rabbi Shmuley (@RabbiShmuley) June 23,
The Biden Bunch | The soon ending DNC Show
Jun 22 2019 30 mins
Podcast 75Former Vice President Joe Biden has been hit hard this week with several allegations of racism, low-energy, and scandal. It seems that the strong-arm of the Democrat National Committee, the media, have put their sights on Biden. Podcast 75 will discuss why the sights have been set on Biden, and how The Biden Bunch like Hunter Biden has contributed to his downfall.Joe BidenJoseph Robinette Biden Jr. served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. Biden also represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009. He is currently one of the best gaffe machines the Trump campaign can have as one of the 20 plus candidates wanting the Democrat nomination for president.Now that you know the history of Biden, this Scranton born politician has made it clear that he was “called by world leaders” to fix what Trump has destroyed. I know what you are thinking. Biden probably would not even have a chance if Trump had not screwed up so bad. I mean who wants low employment, a pro-America approach to politics, and over 3% GDP growth? I know you my good friends can understand my sarcasm in what I am saying. Biden obviously was part of a legacy that grew our national debt more than all other Presidents combined, good job Joe. Not to mention if you need your hair sniffed or to be groped he is your guy. But with all the safeguards in place with the media to protect the Obama legacy, they have started to attack Biden. The Media and Biden’s departureThat might take too long to completely answer but here is an idea. They want to hasten it Biden’s departure. I think they have to conclude, properly, that he can’t win! He can’t keep up with Trump in the campaign. It would be Hillary all over again. He can’t draw any crowds. I believe his last “rally” had 83 people there. The contrast between any Trump rally and a Biden rally would be so stark that Biden would have to stop doing campaign appearances as Hillary did because the comparison would be deadly.Then you start talking about things like energy level and communication skills. These point to the fact that Biden as a presidential candidate has been an abject failure. They’re doing one of two things. Maybe they’re putting all this negative stuff out there to see how Biden can survive it. The media is all too happy to help with this.Biden and SegregationistThis week was the perfect time for those who want to take Joe Biden out to do so. A perfect storm has been brewing as far as racial tensions go. Hearings were conducted this week in Washington to explore the idea of reparations. I have made my point clear on this, I think Fathers are needed not a check. Democrats will not tackle this issue, however. Votes can’t be bought with parental responsibility, it can only be bought with cold hard cash. So what is the connection with Biden? Biden gaffed this week saying he worked with Democrats in the past who were racist. Those like James O. Eastland. Sen.
President Trump’s Keep America Great Campaign Has Officially Started
Jun 19 2019 30 mins
Podcast 74President Trump’s Keep America Great Campaign Has Officially Started and he was greeted by thousands of supporters in Orlando Tuesday night. A sea of red, white, and camouflage hats filled the audience for Trumps first official campaign rally of the 2020 cycle. As soon as President Trump took the stage in his signature red power tie, the crowd seemed pleased to have waited. Crowd members greeted the President with chants of “USA.” This gives me hope for our country. No matter your political affiliation, I believe you should love our country.President Trump’s Keep America Great CampaignPresident Trump’s Keep America Great campaign rally showed a crowded area of America loving patriots. Deplorables who love our country were there to show support for our president and country. However, there are those who do not love the country we live in today. President Trump was quick to call those out in his speech. One great example is the reaction from CNN. While I would call them “fake news” more than anything, they cannot stand criticism. CNN broke away from President Trump’s 2020 kick off speech CNN broke away from President Trump’s 2020 kick off speech shortly after the crowd began chanting “CNN Sucks!” While discussing the impact of the 2016 election, Trump directed comments to the assembled reporters. “2016 was not merely another four-year election, this was a defining moment in American history, ask them right there. The amount of press we have tonight reminds me of the Academy Awards before it went political and their ratings went down the tubes.” President Donald J. TrumpAs Trump pointed to the media, the crowd began booing and chanting, “CNN Sucks! CNN Sucks!”CNN anchor John Berman cut in and said, “We’ve been watching the president kick off his re-election bid. He’s been on stage for about six minutes. Within two minutes, he did talk about the economy, but within four minutes it was attacks on the media. He was talking about a bright, rosy future but then quickly reverted to some of the same themes he’s been talked about since he began running four years ago today.”My front porch family, this is a great example of why we call them fake news. No, they are not making this point us, but they could not stomach what the President was saying. It is a blatant attempt to keep their audience from hearing the truth. It would be a hard sell to vote against someone with the positive impact of President Trump.Obama failures in America and Trump SuccessUnder the Obama administration, the United States had very bleak numbers. The federal debt owed to the public rose 128 percent. Obama in his eight years put America in more debt than all other presidents combined. His administration never saw 3% GDP for a single year, which was the first time in presidential term history. The so-called recovery has been the weakest one since the 1940s. Americans have the lowest homeownership rate in 51 years. Over 11 million more Americans are on food stamps since Obama became president and mo...
The necessary role of Fathers in the family
Jun 15 2019 30 mins
Podcast 73America’s definition of family has changed over the past few decades. While change is not always a bad thing, when it comes to the family, it can be. Long gone are the days of the traditional family with a mom, dad, and kids. There are those in our culture today that believe a key function to the family should be removed, that key functional role is the one of a father. Podcast 73 will discuss why Father’s are important to the family, and why America should look to a better model of what a family should be.Father, not Chromosome DonorThe old saying goes that any guy can get a woman pregnant. The activity that leads to the creation of life is only for a brief moment in time. Just because you impregnate a woman doesn’t make you a “man” nor does it make you a Father. Fathers play a role in every child’s life that cannot be filled by others. Sports heroes are great, but nothing compares to having someone in your life you call “dad.” This role of dad can have a large impact on a child and help shape him or her into the person they become. Fathers and Emotional Development The family structure that God established works. Yes, if you do not share my Judeo-Christian values you may turn this off of strongly disagree. Each role has its part, and each role is essential. Fathers, like mothers, are pillars in the development of a child’s emotional well-being. Children look to their fathers to lay down the rules and enforce them.It is no surprise that in our society today we see folks who have no respect for authority. At every turn, people are protesting those in a position of respect. School teachers and administrators, police officers, and ministers are not respected like they once were. The absence of a father who lays down the rule is changing how our culture views authority and following the rules. Father’s are not only those who lay down the law though. A Father’s effect on a Child Children look to their fathers to provide a feeling of physical land emotional security. They also want to make their fathers proud. An involved father in a child’s life promotes inner growth and strength. Studies have shown that when fathers are affectionate and supportive, it greatly affects a child’s cognitive and social development. It also instills an overall sense of well-being and self-confidence.This, of course, is not an argument against mothers. It is a defense that both a father and mother are essential in a child’s life. Critics will say, just because a dad is not present doesn’t mean the child will not have success. This is true. Situations arise in life where a father is not present and the child is successful. My defense is that men should step up to the plate and be a father. The important role they play greatly effects the landscape of the child’s life. Fathers Set the Standard for Relationships with OthersFathers not only influence who we are internally but how we have relationships with people externally. The way a father treats his child will influence what he or she looks for in other peo...
Kick em’ in the Nadlers
Jun 12 2019 30 mins
Podcast 72House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler started another round of hearings this week. The mentality of kick em’ in the Nadlers has been adopted by House Democrats. As the Democrats in Washington continue this smokescreen, it leaves me with several questions. On Podcast 72 the Front Porch Politics discussion will discuss the hearings with John Dean, and why Americans are getting kicked in the Nadlers with these time and money wasting hearings.Jerry Nadler’s HearingsThe House Judiciary Committee kicked off a series of hearings on the Mueller report Monday. The hearings included with former Nixon White House counsel John Dean. Joining Dean were the other U.S. attorneys. The testimony was to offer their insights on President Trump’s “most overt acts of obstruction.”My first question is how do you obstruct from something that didn’t take place? In place of actually doing something like helping America people, Jerry is kickin’ the American people in the Nadlers. He is wasting time and money, to be honest. Jon Stewart is trying to save the 9/11 relief fund, while Nadler is still chasing the ghost of Russian Collusion. The 9/11 fund, just so you know, is monies that support those who suffered due to being heroes after the September 11th attacks. Never the less while we are not focusing on the actual problems in America. This is why we call it the “swamp.” It is murky waters where parasites live.Speaking of parasites did you see where AOC wants a raise?Ocasio-Cortez ask for a RaiseYes, I know I have sidetracked but you need to know this. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated on Monday that she wants a $4,500 raise. Ocasio-Cortez stated the $4,500 pay bump in question was “not even like a raise.” Congress members make $174,000 a year, just so you know. AOC said that everyone should get cost of living increases to “accommodate for changes in our economy.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gets $223,500. Again, as I stated parasites. You and I work, pay taxes, and raise children and work overtime to make more money. Freshmen congress members just give themselves a raise, which we pay for. I believe in paying a fair wage, don’t get me wrong, but representing people should not make someone rich, which being in Washington D.C. typically does.Just another example of how they are kicking America in the Nadlers.Kick em’ in the Nadlers JerryJerry Nadler called John Dean in a mock impeachment hearing.The Jerry Nadler mock impeachment hearing bombed. Stop and think about it. Going back 45 years, John Dean, who’s got nothing to do with anything happening today goes to testify. Many of you like me were not even born in 1972 when Dean was involved in Watergate.Nadler’s hearing did one thing. The hearing backfired, folks.
D-Day 75th Anniversary and The Greatest Generation
Jun 08 2019 30 mins
Podcast 71Thursday, June 6th marked the 75th or Diamond anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy facing overwhelming odds, and a heavily dug-in German army. This “great generation” preserved freedom and faith for the future free world during World War II. Podcast 71 will take a look into the battle that took place, and how today’s young folks could learn a lesson from this great generation. A Brief History of D-DayThe Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France (and later western Europe). Liberation from Nazi control and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.Planning for the operation began in 1943. In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted a substantial military deception. Codenamed Operation Bodyguard, the plan was to mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the main Allied landings. The weather on D-Day was far from ideal. Operation Overlord had to be delayed for 24 hours. The invasion planners had requirements for the phase of the moon, the tides, and the time of day. This meant only a few days each month were deemed suitable. Adolf Hitler placed German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in command of German forces. Rommel’s responsibility was to develop fortifications along the Atlantic Wall in anticipation of an Allied invasion.Naval bombardment and airborne assault preceded the amphibious landings. The landing of 24,000 US, British, and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight before the next day’s invasion. Allied infantry and armored divisions began landing on the coast of France at 06:30. The target 50-mile (80 km) stretch of the Normandy coast was divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword. Casualties were heaviest at Omaha, with its high cliffs. German casualties on D-Day have been estimated at 4,000 to 9,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 10,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead. The Great Undertaking of D-DayThe number of soldiers landed on the beaches at Normandy on D-Day was 129,710. Let’s compile the paratroopers and the pilots of aircraft that were flying over, bombing, transport, and all of the crew that were on the ships that crossed the channel. This total gives a total of 150,000 Allied troops who were part of the mission. Some German leaders thought that the invasion was going to happen in Northeastern Europe, toward the Russian front. This is due to the genius idea of General Eisenhower and his command. Command units were burning fires and running training missions. The German spies spotted the decoys.The Germans were so surprised that Erwin Rommel,
The Democrat Party has gone Bat-Socialist-Crazy
Jun 05 2019 30 mins
Podcast 70The Democrat party has left the generation of Kennedy and have now adopted the party of Lenin. With major players like Bernie, Ocasio-Cortez, and Tlaib leading the way toward Socialism. The party that once proclaimed “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” is now saying “government gives me everything free.” We find this most in the state of California. Socialist Mentality in the Democrat PartyIt doesn’t matter what it is, it should be free. No one works and gets paid, everyone is cured of all diseases due to socialism, and who needs religion when you can worship government.The mainstream media constantly and the Democrat party tell us that “Americans want socialism.” According to a Gallup poll, 43% of Americans say socialism would be a good thing for the country. First, we need to ask who, who prefers socialism? Americans between the age of 18 to 24 view Socialism much more than Capitalism as the preferred economic system. 61% of Americans aged between 18 and 24 prefer Socialism in America. Why have we seen the growth in socialism in young people?Why Gen-Z wants SocialismWhile the answer is complex, I do feel it is simple. First, none of the people in this age range lived through the Cold War. The disparaging picture of what Socialism brings to people is far and removed from them. They have lived in a country whose wealth has been built on Capitalism. They enjoy the fruit of the harvest but hate the farmer who grew it.Secondly, life has been too easy. The Gen-Z generation has watched as Millennials have borrowed up to the hip in college debt while earning degrees that are worth as Chris Farley would say “Jack Squat.”Student loan debt in the United States has more than doubled over the past decade to about $1.5 trillion. It is obvious to see that 39% of millennials have a college education. I am considered a millennial by-the-way.After observing millennials go into debt with at times little reward, Gen-Z now flashes on the scene with a bad education in our countries history and how we have gotten where we are. According to a new Harris Poll, 73% believe that the government should supply health care. Healthcare is not the only “free” item they want. 67% believe college should be free.A Loss of American ValuesIt is as simple as a breakdown of American values. For conservatives like myself, we believe that national sovereignty is of utmost importance. A more liberal Gen-Z generation doesn’t be...
Mueller, Trump’s Mexican Tariffs, and Mickey Mouse
Jun 01 2019 30 mins
Podcast 69Front Porch Politics host David Marks will discuss some of the current events from this week. Podcast 69 will cover events include Robert Mueller and why he proved the existence of the deep state with his press conference. We will also discuss President Trump’s plan for getting Mexico to pay for the wall through tariffs. Finally, we will discuss why the company that was created to entertain kids, has now decided they want to kill them. How CEO Bob Iger of Disney is showing the companies support for abortion. You will not want to miss a minute of this podcast.Mueller’s Press ConferenceRobert Mueller held a news conference this week on the Russian probe. Mueller in his 8-minute long political stunt proved one thing. This investigation was never about laws being broken. This investigation was all political. Not only has Mueller proved this was a political “witch hunt” he has also shown that he is a liar. Now, of course, this is not the opinion of the fake news media. The media has praised Mueller. However, Attorney General Barr and three other witnesses may prove otherwise.Let me give you a common sense approach to this situation. In 2016, the favorite to win the presidency did not win. Hillary Clinton, even with her best efforts of cheating and lying, lost. You the American people absolutely rejected her. Of course, she sees all of us as “deplorable” and “smelly Wal-Mart people.” These same people who rejected Clinton elected Donald Trump. Trump exposed the Deep StateThe election of President Trump has exposed something. The deep state does exist. Unlike tall tales of mythical creatures like the “boogie man,” the Deep State has reared its ugly head. The point of all of this is to shut you, the American citizen down. We are thought of as uneducated and non-sophisticated. We should not pick our leaders, we are obviously too dumb to these folks.Don’t doubt me on this. Why do you think there is such a big push to eliminate the electoral college? It’s plain and simple folks. To allow the “refined” people of our society to run the country. Trump has shown to be the president of the common person. The blue collar, tax paying, gun owning, and America-loving citizen. I would say “my front porch family.”Elites like Nalder, Pelosi, Obama, and Mueller see you as a pissant in our society. However, you all know that pissants bite. And when they do, others will attack and bite also. We as patriots have now started to bite. And the elites, the “Deep State Swamp” hate us for it.My advice is to keep biting. This is our country. We the people. That is the logic behind this podcast. A way to “Make America Great Again” by having family discussions like they were once held on the front porch of a home. This podcast is the front porch for America.Speaking of America, what about our neighbor to the south. Trump announces tariffs on MexicoPresident Donald Trump may have Mexico pay for the wall after all.
Does America have Low Testosterone?
May 29 2019 30 mins
Podcast 68During the past two decades, testosterone levels in American men have rapidly declined. What happened to the men of this country and has America itself developed low testosterone? For those of who watch tv or listen to the radio, we are constantly thrown commercials about men with Low T. Constant ads showing some ad with an actor who tells you about the new product they are using to boost their testosterone. This podcast will take a hard look into current society in America, and how we have lost testosterone.Before we get into the evidence for the podcast I have some statements you need to know. First, I believe in two genders, male and female. It is what God made with Adam and Eve. It’s what Noah took on the ark. It’s what is needed to for our species to keep populating. That being said, what is happening to the men in America? This is a question that leaves me scratching my head.Boys will be boysI like many of you grew up watching John Wayne movies. I played sports, fished with dad, and learned how to work. Work ethic was a core value. I grew up with friends of the same caliber. The dad’s in their lives were essential. The dad’s in their lives raised boys. As the old saying goes, “boys will be boys”.There has been a recent attack on men in masculinity. Toxic masculinity is a term used all too often. Gillette has recently attacked men by having ads that showcase trying to correct the phrase “boys will be boys”. This is just trying to get effeminate men to buy their razors.Feminazis and Toxic MasculinityToday’s feminazis would have considered us all to be full of toxic masculinity. We all had strong fathers in our lives, and they expected us to be boys. We would get into fights sometimes, usually not letting our parents know. And we remained friends. If you get out in the middle of a cornfield and start playing football, fights are going to happen. This is due to a drive of dominance, competition, and testosterone.All throughout this time, our fathers expected us to grow up to be men. They expected us to be protectors, fathers, husbands, and leaders. If injustice was done you stood for the right. America was founded on this principle. Men in our past stood up against the British. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson would be considered as having toxic men by feminazis of today. You also treated a woman with respect. They modeled this for all of us.Good Fathers model IntegrityOur fathers modeled this for all of us. There is no doubt in my mind that the men I grew up around were good men. They raised us up to be good men. To honor God, Family, and Country. A good example of this is with my dad. When I was younger I played summer baseball. One night after one of our games some boys around the age of 20 were playing basketball at the park. One of the boys started to verbally attack one of the mothers. This took place when she corrected him for using bad language around smaller kids. There was a time in our country when parents would want you to correct their children from acting like a fool.
CNN Ratings Drop, Alabama Travel Ban, and Mississippi’s Abortion Law
May 25 2019 30 mins
Podcast 67This week on Front Porch Politics we will discuss CNN’s ratings dropping 26% to hit all-time lows. We will also discuss Los Angeles banning travel to Alabama. Also, an Obama appointed Judge blocks the Mississippi abortion law. Front Porch Politics Podcast also takes time to remember Memorial Day.CNN Drops 26% In Prime Time As CNN prepares to move its prime time studios and operations to a glitzy new building to New York City’s Hudson Yards development, the network saw its prime time lineup drop 26% in April compared to the same month one year ago. CNN’s total audience in prime time was well under a million viewers at 767,000. This is compared to Fox News with a total audience of 2.395 million. When you lie to people for two and a half years it catches up with you. CNN obviously have lost items momentum as they and other liberal news channels have started to spew the same garbage. I honestly believe that there is a shared narrative each channel pushes. First, it was collusion, then obstruction, Stormy Daniels, and now impeachment.Let not forget this all-star cast of people like Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and our favorite this guy. (Jim Acosta Clip). Yes, that was our old pal Jim Acosta, who still denies that CNN Sucks. Obviously, CNN does not know there spew of American hatred has viewers turning them off. People like those in my home state of Alabama.Speaking of Alabama, have you heard that Los Angeles has placed a travel ban on the state?Los Angeles Banned Travel to AlabamaLos Angeles County’s Board of Supervisors voted this week to enact a one-year ban on official travel to Alabama over that state’s controversial abortion law.Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, who co-authored the motion with Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, called the law an “attack not only confined to the residents of those states but an act of aggression upon all of us.”The motion prohibits officials conducting business on behalf of the county from traveling to Alabama except for emergency response, training or assistance or “legally required matters where the failure to authorize such travel would seriously harm the County’s interests,” Solis said in a statement.Let me begin by telling the America loving, conservatives of Los Angeles to come on and see us. This is not the socialist country that liberals in California want it to be. They cannot control where you travel. Los Angeles has a crime rate that is higher than 84% of the state’s cities and towns of all sizes. Maybe they are just afraid that the “God-fearing, gun toating people of Alabama might teach them how to deal with crime.
The Alabama Abortion Ban Law
May 18 2019 29 mins
Podcast 66On Wednesday, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed what many consider the United States strictest abortion law, which makes any physician performing an abortion guilty of a felony in almost all cases in the state of Alabama. The exception would be when a pregnancy poses “…a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.” This law will test Roe v. Wade where justices used the 14th Amendment to justify abortion.The Alabama abortion law has sparked a national debate. Before we get into this I want to give you a surreal statistic. Since Roe v. Wade, there have been over 60 million abortions. Roughly 21% of pregnancies in America end in Abortion. Approximately 2,538 human beings lose their lives to abortion each day in the United States.This law in Alabama has caused a massive wave of arguments on both pro-life and pro-choice sides. This is following the so-called “sex strike” that has been pushed by Hollywood leftist over the state of Georgia’s heartbeat bill. Pro-life groups have celebrated the Alabama bill while those in the pro-choice champ have lost their minds. So how did we get to this point?The Declaration of IndependenceThe Declaration of Independence stated, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”According to our founders, the first unalienable Right is Life. This was concrete in our country until January 22, 1973. On that day in history, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that abortion is protected by the constitution citing the 14th amendment. Is this the case, however, did the 14th Amendment protect abortion?14th AmendmentThe 14th Amendment comprises five sections, four of which began in 1866 as separate proposals that stalled in the legislative process and were amalgamated into a single amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States granted citizenship and equal civil and legal rights to African Americans and slaves who had been emancipated after the American Civil War.“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”So how does this give the right to abortion?
U.S. and China Trade Wars and Social-Left Rashida Tlaib
May 15 2019 30 mins
Front Porch Politics podcast will dive into the current events for this week. The United States and China have entered into a trade war. Rashida Tlaib states she has a calm feeling about the Holocaust. The U.S. and China trade wars and Rashida Tlaib has gone Social-Left, both topics will be discussed this podcast for Front Porch Politics.U.S. and China Trade WarAmerica has entered into a new “cold war” a war for cold hard cash with the Chinese. Beijing has called for a ‘people’s war’ against the US as President Trump threatens tariffs on another $300 billion of Chinese goods in an all-out trade battle.The United States outlast the Soviets by waiting them out. Folks, Socialism does not work. If we will stick to our guns we will win this. Yes, it may cause some temporary pains. However, if we stick to our “monetary guns” we will win. I guarantee you that China is worried. We have been taking it on the chin to the tune of $500 billion a year for who knows how long because our leaders wouldn’t stand up to China. It’s the way we buy peace. It’s the way we keep the socialist at bay in China. It is also a way to keep them from getting mad at us.Chinese media speaks outIn a series of editorials and op-ed articles published Monday, Chinese state media slammed what it labeled the Trump administration’s “greed and arrogance.” Stories published called for a “people’s war” against the tariffs. Beijing’s state-run media effectively serves as a mouthpiece for the Communist Party.In a statement from the nationalist Global Time, the quote was given: “The most important thing is that in the China-US trade war, the US side fights for greed and arrogance … and morale will break at any point. The Chinese side is fighting back to protect its legitimate interests.”Pot calling the kettle blackThis is the pot calling the kettle black. The Chinese want greed and arrogance as bad as we do. They want to be top dog, and for years we paid for their desires. This has been at the expense of American workers, products, and property. Now we have a President who does not beg for their scraps and they can’t stand it. As a result, we have the current U.S. and China trade war.The article goes on to say:“The trade war in the US is the creation of one person and one administration, but it affects that country’s entire population. In China, the entire country and all its people are being threatened. For us, this is a real ‘people’s war.'”Why America will winThis is because in America the people own businesses. In China the state owns everything. It’s a competition between two different ideas. Capitalism against socialist Communism. We have been here before, and we won. I’m confident we will win the U.S. and China trade war also.
Why I Love America!
May 11 2019 28 mins
Podcast 64This podcast will take a dive into the greatest country on earth, the United States of America. Join front porch politics podcast as we review why I love this country. This podcast is sure to drive a socialist crazy and drive your heart towards the red, white, and blue.The ConstitutionThe Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the states, it is the source of all government powers, and also provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens.The rights given in this magnificent document limited the power the government has over the people of this country. Giving Americans the highest level of freedom possible. The Bill of RightsJames Madison introduced 12 amendments to the First Congress in 1789. Ten of these would go on to become what we now consider to be the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights established out liberties as citizens of this country. These 10 amendments gave us the ability to worship, defend ourselves, and gave us liberty like no other country in the world. God, Guts, and Guns Since her founding, America has been a nation established on Judeo-Christian beliefs. I believe the Bible to be God’s holy word. America gives me the right to tell you today that is my belief. America also gives you the right to disagree. Other nations in our world demand that you worship the government or Sharia Law. This is not true in America. Sharia Law will never be “law of the land” and I love America for this. GutsAmericans have shown since her founding to have guts. The fortitude that we have shown from generation to generation has impacted history like no other nation. Our military has defeated tyranny, communism, and socialism. Our brave men and women prove every day that we are not afraid to kick your rump if needed. In the words of Teddy Roosevelt, “speak softly and carry a big stick.” America has had to flex her power a few times in history and you can be dang sure that if needed again we will“Speak softly and carry a big stick.”American President Theodore Roosevelt.GunsOnly three countries in the world give citizens the constitutional right to own firearms, Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States. The ownership of firearms is essential to the liberty of our nation. If you choose to not own a gun, fine, but don’t infringe on my rights to. Our founders knew from the beginning to best defense is a wonderful offense. Therefore they gave us the right to defend ourselves from enemies both foreign and domestic. My advice for the socialist who wants to outlaw gun rights comes from our founding fathers, “don’t tread on me.” Old GloryThe American flag is a symbol of hope. It was the inspiration of Francis Scott Key’s Star-Spangled Banner after seeing the flag stand strong after an assault from the British. This national symbol of hope has been burned by en...
No Collusion, No Clinton, and AOC Discovers a Garbage Disposal
May 08 2019 30 mins
Podcast 63This week’s podcast will be full of great information for the Front Porch Family. We will cover the topics of No Collusion, No Clinton, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez discovers garbage disposals. You will not want to miss this podcast. No Collusion President Trump has a great reason to celebrate, and so does America. The two years, thirty million dollars, investigation into the Trump campaigns collusion with Russia has wrapped up. Evidence has shown no collusion. American’s should be celebrating the end result of this investigation. CNN, MSNBC, and other media outlets, however, are not happy at all.Pundits have constantly told the American people that our President has been a puppet for Putin. Congressional oversight committees have now shifted their attention to a new standard. Impeachment of everyone from Trump to Barr has been thrown at all viewers faster than a Nolan Ryan fastball. Sadly a Nolan Ryan Fastball is more effective. American’s have realized that the media will lie, and do it on a daily basis. CNN is feeling these effects as they have seen the lowest ratings in years, and have now started at looking at cutting positions at their news network. This is what happens when you lie. People turn you off. Past, Present, and FutureMedia pundits and certain politicians have constantly told us that we need to be fearful. We should be fearful of our countries past. Evidence of the fear we should have can be found in Black Lives Matter groups asking for a statue of Kate Smith to be taken down. Kate Smith as most of you know sang God Bless America, and it was a national icon.Socialist like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also told us to be fearful of our future. AOC and Beto O’Rourke tell us we have 10 years to stop climate change or we are all dead. This obviously is not true. Nuclear War maybe, not Climate Change.Today in the present is where we live each day. I want to encourage each person to live today. Today is the time we can make a change. Our history is our history. America has made strides in correcting our black eyes and scars. Let us strive to remember not to be fearful of yesterday, or tomorrow, but live for today.Twitter banning Conservatives JokestersParody account @aocpressrelease has been banned by Twitter’s Jack Dorsey. Conservative jokester has been permanently banned, however, a Pennsylvania representative has posted a video of him harassing and “bullying” an elderly woman outside a Planned Parenthood office. He went further the next day to offer $100 for anyone who would dox minors outside who were praying for the babies.Conservative you may find that we focus on our Facebook page. We do this for a reason. While conservative thought is oppressed on this social media platform, I have found we are not oppressed as much as on Twitter. What is good for the goose is good for the gander, and Jack, you should ban all not just conservatives.Hillary ClintonFormer first lady and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton this week commented that she had the election “stolen” for her. This obviously is a lie. Mrs.

Poway Shooting and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Prophecy of the Future
May 01 2019 30 mins
Podcast 61The last weekend was full of events in the America news media. A terrible tragedy took place in Poway California at a Synagogue. Also, AOC has given us her prophecy for America by 2028. This podcast will break down the truth of these events and how they affect the American people.Poway Synagogue ShootingA gunman armed with a semiautomatic rifle walked into a suburban San Diego County synagogue and opened fire on the congregation Saturday, killing one person and injuring three in an attack that authorities was motivated by hate. The 19-year-old suspect, identified as John T. Earnest, of Rancho Penasquitos, was arrested a short time later. President Donald Trump and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus denounced the attack as an apparent hate crime.John T. EarnestAccording to a manifesto, published online shortly after 10 a.m. PST on Saturday, Earnest also takes responsibility for an Escondido Mosque arson a month prior. During that incident, Earnest spray-painted messages referencing the New Zealand mosque shooting.In his manifesto, the 19-year-old suspect in the deadly shooting at a San Diego County synagogue had no love for President Trump. According to released documents, Earnest apparently blasted Trump calling him a “Zionist, Jew-loving” traitor. To be exact he stated “As for Mr. Trump: You mean that Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous c*cksucker? Don’t make me laugh.” This is one sick person.“As for Mr. Trump: You mean that Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous c*cksucker? Don’t make me laugh.”John T. Earnest, shooter at PowayOne woman was killed and three worshipers were injured when a gunman opened fire at the Chabad of Poway in Poway, California. Earnest was confronted by an off-duty Border Patrol agent, who shot at but did not hit the suspect. This proves a point that only a gun can stop a gun.The Left’s RhetoricThis has by far been overlooked by some of the media and those in Washington D.C. who consistently try to divide us as a country. Folks like AOC and Al Sharpton want to consistently tell us that President Trump is a racist. This slander is then consistently joined by the likes of Don Lemon. One point is clear, they hate Trump.AOC who ignored the bombing in Sri Lanka, called for the Senate to vote on H.R. 8, after the synagogue shooting. So where has gun laws gotten us to this point?California Gun LawsCalifornia has the strictest gun laws in the country. It’s far from definitive as to whether strict state gun laws reduce gun violence, including mass shootings. If you’re a gun owner in California, you must pass a universal background check, no matter where you buy your gun. You must also wait at least 10 days to receive that gun. To Carry this further in California it is illegal to own most assault weapons or buy and sell large-capacity ammunition magazines or .50 caliber rifles. So California gun laws would not have stopped this shooting. Why we do not need to Abolish the 2nd AmendmentThe issue is not gun laws, it’s the people owning the guns. I grew up in a house with guns.

Bernie, Biden, and the Democrat Primary
Apr 27 2019 30 mins
Bernie Sanders wants felons to vote, Joe Biden announces his run, both of these two candidates are working to win the Democrat primary. This week’s podcast will humor you and educate you on the two major players who are seeking the nomination for the democrat party for president.Bernie SandersCrazy Bernie has become a household name these days. Take a few minutes to peruse the internet and you will find plenty of “supportive” news clips about Bernie. Organizations like CNN and the Young “Jerks”, I mean Turks, will show love to Bernie. However, the ideas he is proposing in our country are far more left than most common sense democrats can stomach. Terrorist can vote?Let’s begin by covering the issue of the right to vote. Bernie Sanders gives us an idea of what he believes is comparable to women and minorities not being allowed to vote. So Bernie wants to tell you all that terrorist, and rapist, and murders not being allowed to vote is a violation of their rights in a democracy. He may be possibly right, however, we are the Constitutional Republic. So first, Bernie, no you do not know the history of our country. As a matter of fact, you are misquoting who we are as a nation, and you want to be president.Socialist Changing our HistoryThis is all part of the new democrat socialist agenda to change who America is. Not only do they change religious and global history, but they also change America’s history. Evidence of this can be found with Ilhan Omar as she called Jesus a non-Jew. Bernie and Felons RightsMy first question to Crazy Bernie is this. If we bend the rules on voting for felons in prison because it is there right, do we now have to give them guns in prison? The second amendment gives the right to own firearms. So obviously by not allowing rapist, terrorist, and murders to have guns in prison is a violation of their rights also. My front porch family can sense my sarcasm. This is stupidity at it’s finest.Article 1The truth of the matter is Bernie cannot give felons the right to vote without changing the Constitution. Article 1 of the Constitution gives states the responsibility of overseeing federal elections. Constitutional amendments and have been passed to protect those who once could not vote the right, such as women. However, there is a large gap between convicted terrorist felons and women. So ladies now you know what Bernie thinks of you. That applies to minorities also.While Bernie absolutely wants to change the landscape of America, and it’s history he now has more moderate competition. Enter Joe Biden. I suspect the media will now flirt with this newly announced candidate.Joe BidenThe former Vice-President under Obama has thrown his hat into the ring. He has done so with a campaign announcement video. Let me give you a little background on why he did the video first. Creepy Uncle Joe wanted to announce at Charlottesville, they told him no. He then decided to do a dual announcement in Pennsylvania and did not get it organized. Good job Joe.Biden’s third try is a charm, then saw him announcing via online video. In his announcement, he referenced to Charlottesville and an edited clip of what President Trump said after the sad...
The Rise of Radical Islam and its effects on America
Apr 24 2019 30 mins
Podcast 59The devastating Islamic terror attacks on the churches in Sri Lanka are again bringing to the forefront of radical Islamic terrorism. This is downplayed by some of our politicians like former President Barack Obama, and former Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Today’s podcast will take a look at the Rise of Radical Islam, and how it affects America today. Sri LankaThe calm of Easter Sunday was shattered by gruesome bombings that killed at least 290 people in Sri Lankan churches and hotels. A sacred day to Christians worldwide, Easter was ushered in by almost 300 Christians being killed. The mainstream media will downplay this event for fear of being called “Islamophobic.” CNN reported the story as such:“Though it’s not clear who’s behind the eight explosions that forced the country of 21 million people to go on lockdown, they are certain acts of terror.” (Monday, April 22, 2019). No surprise that CNN would downplay this event.What we do knowThe government on Monday blamed a little-known radical Islamist group for the devastating Easter Sunday suicide bombings that killed nearly 300 people. Officials said the group, which had not carried out any serious attacks before, had received help from an international terrorist organization.So why would some news media downplay Islamic terror?One word, Islamophobia. In America, everyone has to be p.c. these days. Fear of mobs on social media outlets like twitter will attack you behind a keyboard. To make this worse, now in Washington D.C. we have congresswomen like Ilhan Omar who will tweet:“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan”Ilhan Omar She’s already proving herself to be a hard-core hater of Jewish people. She described the 9/11 terror attacks as an event, “where some people did something” at a CAIR event in March; CAIR allegedly has terror ties. These aren’t isolated incidents. These tweets and remarks are part of a pattern. In 2012 she tweeted “Allahu Akbar 🙂 #LifeisGood” which means “God is greatest”. Now, I am all for saying God is great, I usually follow it with God is good, let us thank him for our food…”But that phrase, God is greatest has a different meaning to Islamic terrorists. When Christians and Jews use this phrase, it is meant as a praise to the almighty. This, however, is a battle cry to Islamic terrorist. Let me refresh your memory.Islamic Terrorist AttacksIn 2017 in Paris, for example, a man wielding a knife attacked a French soldier outside the Louvre while screaming, “Allahu akbar.” Same for the London Bridge attack in June of 2017. The attackers were heard yelling “Allahu akbar” and “this is for Allah” after mowing down dozens of people in a van. The Pulse Massacre in 2015? Same thing. Terrorist ties to the Phrase

Why do we celebrate Easter?
Apr 20 2019 28 mins
Podcast 58Why do Christians celebrate Easter? Many people think it’s all about baskets of candy, fancy hats, bunnies, and eggs. But that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about a man named Jesus Christ. He is who we celebrate on Easter. This podcast will give an explanation as to who he was, and why Christians celebrate this special holiday. The prophecy of the Easter story In the book of Isaiah, we can see the foundation of the Easter story. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53:3Jesus in his life he saw sorrow. However, his presence was not to win over political, religious, or governmental crowds. He had a greater purpose. Jesus was hanging on the cross for the very people who ridiculed him.Mark 15:29-3229 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.Bear the CrossIsaiah also expands on who Jesus was before he was even born. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.Isaiah 53:4The life of Jesus was an example for all of the christian world to follow. Paul later states that we should bear one anothers burdens. Jesus clearly gave us this example first. His purpose, however, was not just to set an example. Jesus’s purposeBut he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.Isaiah 53:5This verse gives me chills every time I read it. So now I want to relate Isaiah to Good Friday.John 19:1-31 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. The Crucifixion Isaiah goes into detail about who we are and who Jesus was. In writing Isaiah explains that Jesus was to take the iniquity (sin) for us all and have it placed on his at the crucifixion.All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.Isaiah 53:6-8Jesus Burial9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.Isaiah 53:9
The war on Christianity and the burning of Notre Dame
Apr 17 2019 30 mins
Listen to Podcast 57The war on Christianity is ramping up all across the world. The national media in America refuses to dedicate any time to this. We have seen that the burning of Norte Dame has been labeled an accident. Are there clues however to see this as part of the war on Christianity? This podcast will give you clues as to why the theory of arson may not be just “conspiracy theory.” The War on Christianity Around 215 million Christians face significant levels of persecution in the world today, according to the latest World Watch List from Open Doors. Researchers for the organization estimate 1 in 12 Christians live where their faith is “illegal, forbidden, or punished.”During reporting for the 2018 World Watch List, 3,066 Christians were killed, 1,252 were abducted, 1,020 were raped or sexually harassed, and 793 churches were attacked.Most Dangerous Place for Christians* North Korea* Afghanistan* Somalia* Libya* PakistanFour of the top five places for Christian persecution is due to Islamic oppression. To complete the list 9 of the top 10 are due to Islamic oppression. There is no doubt that the Muslim countries not only do not allow Christianity but believe in what the Koran teaches.What the Koran says about Christians“Kill them [unbelievers] wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more unbelief and worship is for Allah alone” (Quran 2:191-193).“Strike off their heads and strike from them every fingertip” (Quran 8:12).The difference in Christianity and IslamIn the end, there is really no comparison between Mohammed and Jesus. Mohammed says, ‘Blessed are you when you persecute,’ (Quran 9:111). Jesus says, ‘Blessed are you when others persecute you’ (Matt. 5:11). Mohammed says, ‘Go and kill’ (Quran 47:3-4). Jesus says, ‘Come and die’ (Luke 9:23). Mohammed says, ‘Fight until you are victorious’ (Quran 61:9). To believers, Jesus has already won the victory (1 Cor. 15:57).This leads us to the sad events this week in Paris. Before we begin, let me give you some background information. I believe that the French government is afraid. I believe they are afraid of being labeled “Islamaphobic” or of retaliation.France jails ‘jihadist’ woman accused over foiled terror attackLast Friday sets the stage. I am talking about the sentencing of Ines Madani. Ines Madani, 22, planned to blow up a car packed with gas canisters near the Notre Dame cathedral in 2016. This plot was foiled and she was arrested. Last Friday she was sentenced to eight years in prison by a French court.Ines Madani was sentenced following a three-day trial. Madani was accused of encouraging would-be jihadists to go to Syria and participate in attacks against France. This would lead to outrage in the Muslim community of Paris. Muslim population in EuropeThe total number of Muslims in the European Union in 2010 was about 19 million. The French capital of Paris has the largest number of over 1.7 million. This is the largest out of any city in the European Union. Paris has an estimated 10.9 million residents. The Burning of Notre DamePlay the Audio Clip
Real Minority Women of Power and the Posers
Apr 13 2019 30 mins
Podcast 57This week was full of video footage of two different types of women. On the one side, we have Candace Owens. A strong conservative presence who was shamed by New York’s 10th congressional district representative Jerry Nadler. The 2nd was questionable comments made by antisemite Ilhan Omar. Before we do a compare and contrast I would like to give you background on both women. Candace Owens Candace Owens is an American conservative commentator and political activist. She is known for her pro-Trump activism and her criticism of Black Lives Matter and of the Democratic Party. She is the Director of Communications at the conservative advocacy group Turning Point USA.Confronting Jerry NadlerGiven Owens stands for conservatism she spoke this week before a House committee. While speaking she was asked to not call a member of the committee “stupid” by Jerry Nadler. If Nadler had taken time long enough to stop reading the Washington Post (yes that’s the paper in front of him), he may have actually listened to what she said.So Ted Lieu is free to use an out of context clip from Owen and accuse her of supporting Hitler. This, of course, was not true, but after Lieu’s time, she was not given time to respond. Funny how that works. Owens was eventually given time and did clear the record. Why was the #metoo movement not mad at Nadler and Lieu for harassing a woman? It is all because she stands for conservatism. African Americans and voting DemocratOwens has argued that African Americans have a “victim mentality” and often refers to the Democratic Party as a “plantation”. She has argued that the American left “like black people to be government-dependent”. Owens has argued that black people have been brainwashed to vote for Democrats. She has characterized abortion as a tool for “the extermination of black babies”. Just for your information, in the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. Candace Owens on White Privilege They’re always talking about white privilege. Who’s doing the best in America right now? Asians are doing the best, and no one wants to talks about why. You want to know why? Because they work hard. There is no privilege. The bottom line is that people have to work hard, and no matter what their history is if they want to have a productive future. Owens on the Rise of those like Ilhan Omar In 2018, Owens warned that “Europe will fall and become a Muslim majority continent by 2050.” “There has never been a Muslim majority country where sharia law was not implemented.” She suggested that the United States would then be “forced to save” the British. Ilhan Omar Omar was born on October 4, 1981, in Mogadishu and spent her early years in Baidoa, Somalia. After the start of the Somali Civil War in 1991, she and her family fled the country and spent four years in a Dadaab refugee camp in Garissa County,
Why Has America Become So Lazy?
Apr 10 2019 30 mins
They don’t start businesses as much as they once did. They don’t spend time outdoors as they once did. And they live in a society that tells them everything will hurt them. The facts are true. American’s have become lazier, and we are teaching a future generation to be lazy. Many of you were like me. You grew up working even at a young age. We have however lost this. Just look at how people bring up children today. Often they won’t even let children go outside. One contributing factor to the growing laziness in America is found in the kids. Today’s Kids and Playing OutsideDo you remember playing outside, all day? I do. We played in creeks and in the woods. Children today spend less time outdoors than any other generation, devoting only four to seven minutes to unstructured outdoor play per day. Kids are spending an average of seven and a half hours in front of electronic media.Just based on this information alone we can see why kids are becoming lazy. Elected officials constantly tell us about an obesity problem with kids. Maybe some outdoor play would help with this problem.Safety, not PlayAccording to a report from 2017 from CNN, all of this is causing the U.S. to stagnate economically and politically. Tyler Cowen says in his new book: “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream.” Growth is far slower than it was in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s and productivity growth is way down, despite everyone claiming they are working so hard.One chance we may see is that our past generations didn’t talk about how hard they work, they showed it. The work we do today is far less overall than what they did. Most men in the area I grew up in would work a full-time job, then come home and farm. “Innovation is painful. That’s why we don’t do more of it,” Cowen, a professor of economics at George Mason University, told CNNMoney. His book makes the case that all of the upheavals of the 1960s and 70s caused people to strive for safety and the status quo in the decades after that.Government HandoutsAnother contributor to the issue of laziness is government handouts. In 2018 a total of $851 billion is projected to be spent on welfare programs in America. From 1965 to 2011 the total percentage of GDP spent on welfare programs has quadrupled from .83 percent to 4.4 percent of the total.Safety that has changed how we work. If you remove hard work from just one generation, it follows in the future generations. This coupled with kids who do not play outside we can see why we have a laziness problem. A Current Reset on LazinessThere has been one reset on these statistics. Enter Donald Trump. President Trump has hit the reset button on bringing back jobs that President Obama said would never come back. The jobs that require not a college degree, but hard work. Jobs like welding, mining, and technical skills. The jobs that made America great.The Department of Agriculture, which runs the food stamp program,
Avoiding Tax Increases the #3 Top Issue for Conservatives in 2020
Apr 07 2019 30 mins
Conservative Americans are not in any hurry to raise taxes. As a matter of fact, according to a recent Pew Research Poll, conservatives major concerns were broken down into three major concerns. The third highest major concern among conservatives for the 2020 Presidential election is avoiding tax increases.The #1 major issue that seems to be of the utmost importance to those on the Conservative side, Illegal Immigration. The key issue of immigration will affect our nation for years to come. The number two greatest concern for Conservatives for the 2020 Presidental election was Reducing the National Debt. At over $22 trillion dollars and 107% of our GDP, there is no speculation as to why this is such a major concern. However, the poll does not end with just these two.As most of you have seen recently almost all of the Democratic candidates are in favor of raising your taxes. These tax increases are not small either. Those on the socialist left are supporting up to 90% tax rates. So where do you stand as an American? Feel free to email me, or post on our social media pages!The Current Tax RatesBefore we being an in-depth look at our it is important to know where we stand with President Trump. Donald J. Trump ushered in new tax rates after being elected. The tax rates which will be given to you on this podcast are the current tax rates without deductions.The highest income tax rate for American’s right now is 37%. To find yourself in this tax bracket you would have to have an income of $500,000 if single and $600,000 if married in the year of 2018. The lowest tax rate is my favorite tax rate of 10%. To meet the 10% rate you have to have an income of $9,525 if single, and $19,050 if married. The Opposing SideThere have been those on social media who have complained about not getting the refund they once did. There is a common sense approach to this. One of several of the deductions were capped at a lower level. For example, your property tax deduction in higher states like New York is currently at $10,000. This is not favorable to those in larger cities and states that drain income from their citizens through high property taxes. This cap kept those of you from states with lower rates from having to pay a higher rate to subsidize those in higher tax cities and states. This cap works for the majority of Americans across our great land.The other common sense explanation for decreased returns is also because you paid in less. The typical American may have seen a drop in their return but it is due to them paying in fewer taxes. This keeps more money in your pocket. It also frees up cash in the economy to which you can now spend. Corporation TaxesThe Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) reduced the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. The impact of this tax cut has stimulated the economy, created jobs, and has taken more people off welfare. The evidence is seen in the recent job numbers from March 2019. There were 196,000 jobs added to our already growing economy in March.America has become more competitive with the world in its tax rate also. At a 35% tax rate companies were fleeing America. Compiled with state taxes and local taxes corporations were seeing a crunch on their bottom line, so they left.
National Debt the #2 Issue for Conservatives in the 2020 Election
Apr 04 2019 30 mins
Our federal government has lived by the philosophy that “you can spend your way out of debt” for some time now. As working, tax paying, American’s we know this theory doesn’t work. Podcast 53 discusses the #2 issue to conservatives in the 2020 Presidental election. The Fed’s just keep borrowing more and more and increasing spending at a fevered pace. A Brief History of our National DebtIn 2000 our National Debt was $5.6 Trillion (55% of our GDP). Today just 19 years later our national debt is $22 Trillion (107% of our GDP). So how did we get here?Quick milestones of importance. In 2008, for the 1st time ever we crossed the $10 Trillion mark. This equated to 68% of our GDP. The excuse was given that “Obama” was cleaning up the messes left behind by George W. Bush. However, by 2012 we were far much worse off. The National Debt had reached $16 Trillion and became the tipping point reaching 100% of our GDP. When Obama took office we were $9 trillion in debt, by the end of his presidency $21 Trillion. So where did all the money go? Under the Obama administration socialistic programs grew at a rapid rate. The American job market stalled, and the government became a dad. Free Stuff under ObamaDo you remember the “Obama Phone” lady? Not to mention the National Affordable Health Care Act. Obamacare ran a tab of almost bankrupted our country alone.So why is the National Debt a major concern for the conservatives? What does it really matter? Introducing the Gross Domestic Product. For those who do not know what the GDP is. The GDP is the total value of goods produced and services provided in a country during one year. In other words, our national debt has far surpassed the goods produced and the services we provide in our country.Why not become more Socialist?So the argument for people like AOC and Beto O’Rourke have become, just spend more. Make government bigger and forget the cost. Well in “imagination” land sure, but we live in the real world. Americans are constantly told how Europe has it right and we have it wrong. So let’s look at how they are shaping up. Even with our National Debt, in comparison, the EU stinks.Per capita economic output in the U.S. in 2003 was $37,600-more than 40 percent higher than the $26,600 average for EU-15 nations.Real economic growth in the U.S. over the past 10 years (3.2 percent average annual growth) has been more than 50 percent faster than EU-15 growth during the same period (2.1 percent).The U.S. unemployment rate is significantly lower than the EU-15 unemployment rate, and there is a stunning gap in the percentage of unemployed who have been without a job for more than 12 months-3.9 percent in the U.S. versus 41.9 percent in EU-15 nations.Standard of Living in the European UnionLiving standards in the EU are equivalent to living standards in the poorest American states. This is roughly equal to Arkansas and Montana, and only slightly ahead of West Virginia and Mississippi, the two poorest states.So do not believe the hype. The EU is not fairing so well. A key issue blasted down our throat is Universal Healthcare. At an estimated cost of $3.6 trillion a year,
Illegal Immigration the #1 Issue for Conservative in the 2020 Election

As we are approaching Spring the campaign trail for 2020 is in full swing. On the Democrat side, there are several candidates who are fighting for the nomination. We all know the priorities for the Dem’s. They want open-borders, impractical environmental programs, pretty much just full-blown Socialism. Those who are conservative, what are your major issues?Today’s podcast will cover the #1 major issue that seems to be of the utmost importance to those on the Conservative side, Illegal Immigration. Other Issues for the future podcast are national debt and taxes.Illegal ImmigrationEnding illegal immigration to the United States is the top priority for conservative voters in terms of increasing the American quality of life, a new survey finds.In the latest comprehensive survey conducted by Pew Research Center, about 65 percent of GOP voters said the highest priority of the Republican Party should be ending illegal immigration and reducing the illegal alien population currently living in the U.S.Your Paycheck is AffectedMass illegal and unchecked immigration to the country has stagnated U.S. wages for decades while redistributing the wealth of America’s working and middle class to higher income earners.The Pew Research survey reveals Republican voters, by a majority, view illegal immigration as a burden to their quality of life that will impact future generations.Nationwide, there are roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the country. As Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data has revealed, once illegal aliens resettle in the U.S., the overwhelming majority are never deported.In terms of wage stagnation, research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has discovered that the country’s mass illegal and legal immigration policy shifts about $500 billion in wages away from working and middle-class Americans.Every one percent increase in the immigrant composition of an American workers’ occupation reduces their weekly wages by about 0.5 percent. This means the average native-born American worker today has their weekly wages reduced by perhaps 8.5 percent because of current legal immigration levels.In a state like Florida, where immigrants make up about 25.4 percent of the labor force, American workers have their weekly wages reduced by perhaps more than 12.5 percent. In California, where immigrants make up 34 percent of the labor force, American workers’ weekly wages are reduced by potentially 17 percent.Likewise, every one percent increase in the immigrant composition of low-skilled U.S. occupations reduces wages by about 0.8 percent. Should 15 percent of low-skilled jobs be held by foreign-born workers, it would reduce the wages of native-born American workers by perhaps 12 percent.Meanwhile, Trump’s “Hire American” economy has increased blue-collar and middle-class wages by four percent in the last 12 months according to Goldman Sachs. At this rate, Trump could deliver a historic 14 percent wage hike for more than 100 million blue-collar and middle-class Americans before the 2020 presidential election.The Cost of Illegal ImmigrationIn 2017, FAIR’s “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers” report put the total cost of illegal immigration at $135 billion a year. The monthly payout for each illegal would be $937.50.
President Trump is vindicated and there is No Collusion with Russia
Mar 28 2019 30 mins
The American people have been held captive for the last twenty-two months. Twenty-two months of hearing non-stop how our president colluded with a foreign agent. Twenty-two months of how we had an illegitimate president, and he needed to leave office. Media PunditsWe also had media pundits who constantly told us Robert Mueller was a savior of our country. He was a man of pristine integrity, and character. The special counsel was comprised of “swamp” workers who were bent on bringing Donald Trump down. Mueller’s InvestigationMueller noted that, in completing his investigation, he employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team. Approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence forensic accountants, and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas. Executed nearly 500 search warrants. And obtained more than 230 orders for communication records. The special counsel also made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.Fake News Media HypeThe harm that the American media has done, they could have shut this down. They chose to side with it instead. They chose to become part of it. The American mainstream media became a part of the Mueller team. Media pundits became a part of the American counterintelligence apparatus. They became quasi-members of the Obama administration. They became as big an enemy of Donald Trump as the Democrat Party is.The damage that they have done in the process here is incalculable. What would have been the results in the midterm elections if the Republicans in Congress had fully supported Trump and his agenda in the first two years? How many things might they have accomplished? Five-hundred-thirty-three thousand articles published on Trump-Russia collusion in the Drive-By Media the past two years. The fake news networks have devoted 2,284 minutes on the probe. All dedicated to a story that was false.Media MontageThe Media is the Boy Who Cried WolfWhy would you as an America ever have confidence in these people? It is the old story of the boy who cried wolf. The media gave us a golden shower, pun intended, of a false story. The anti-Trumpers in our country bathed in it. All the while the important issues have been left out of the narrative. Record unemployment, tax cuts, and defeating ISIS. The narrative worked. It brought in a new wave of Socialist who vowed to impeach Trump. All for a lie.Now the network of Democrats is scrambling to cover this flop of a story. Don’t believe me? Enter Jussie Smollett. Jussie SmollettTuesday all of the 16 felony charges against Smollett were dropped. All 16. The Chicago DA, the state attorney, Kim Foxx, who had recused herself from this case, has announced that charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped, and the police were not consulted. Smollett insists that he told the truth, even though there is a video of the two Nigerian guys buying the mugging supplies. Buying the supplies with a $3,200 check that Smollett wrote. The rope, the bleach, and the red hat. There is a store surveillance video of this.Why release this now?
The Forgotten Men and Women of America
Mar 23 2019 30 mins
Front Porch Politics was started for one reason. To be a sounding board for those who are the forgotten men and women of this country. The men and women who are private about their life. In a country that constantly makes everything about politics, we are still forgotten. It’s about principles, not a party.The ConstitutionLet me first begin by reminding everyone. The Constitution was written for “We the people.” Not our government. We the people. It was to remind our Federal government that we have unalienable right. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. We want to work, raise our family, and worship God. However, today a recent survey showed that only 1 in 5 high school students knew what the Bill of Rights is.What Conservatives Stand ForIf you listen to any of the news media that exist today you are told conservatism is dead. I openly admit that I am a dinosaur. I know the time-honored traditions I believe in may not be mainstream. What are those traditions? Dad’s matter. Family matters. America has foundational systems. To make America work we must have families, faith, and fight. You may not can or want to always speak your mind. That is what I am here for. Feel like your friends may not agree with you? I have been there. However, I had enough. Let me give you an example. I believe in all things we must stand for faith and family. If I cannot stand for God, what can I stand for? I believe that God ordained our country. If that offends you, okay. America without God is not America, and will not stand. It is that simple. Our national morals should be derived from our faith. Should babies be killed? Of course not, but we allow it, and I am for one sick of this. Life and Moral StandsSpeaking of babies. The family is the foundation of everything 2nd to God. One man, one woman period. It is a God-ordained partnership. It is not easy, but a very rewarding one. My dad told me several times, “Marriage is the hardest job I have ever had.” Without God, you are already fighting a losing battle. Our loss of these two foundational principles is what is wrong with our country. It is not spending, or taxes, or education. It is the loss of faith and family. God is principled. The family is principled. They are worth fighting for. It is a shame we ever have to fight, but we do. The Rise of Donald TrumpThe rise of Donald Trump was not because of who he was. The rise of Donald Trump came long before he announced. The tea party kicked this off. The everyday forgotten people of America became tired of the system we had. A government that disreguared morals, life, and liberty. We were sick of eight years of a President who was weak. A president who was selling out our country at every turn. Do you remember the tour Obama made apologizing for America? What a joke. If you are an American, you should believe in our countries exceptionalism. We have given the world more than anyone, outside of religious beliefs. My point is this. I’m glad McCain and Romney didn’t win. The defeat of these two was a wake-up call to you and I. A wake-up call that if we didn’t get our ship high in transit toget...
The Six Million Dollar Man Beto O’Rourke
Mar 20 2019 30 mins
The “Super Progressive” Democrat Socialist candidate for President Beto O’Rourke has officially announced. His actual name is Robert Francis O’Rourke. He chooses the name Beto to appeal to the Hispanic population. No one is fooled. Robert Francis has, however, hit a new high in campaign contributions. He raised $6.1 million in just 24 hours. So what is the appeal to Democrats with Beto?Saving the WorldBeto is pushing this whole poo-poo idea of Climate change is going to kill us all. If you follow our social media, we shared a story from 1989. The story tells how by 2000 the world is destroyed and mass migration has taken place, according to the UN. This is the same crap he is pushing.Beto has announced that in 12 years over 6 billion people will be displaced by climate change. He continues that mass starvation has taken place, and the earth is almost uninhabitable. I hope you do not fall for this propaganda. My show is not sponsored by big oil, I just believe in science. If they want to pay for the podcast, I’m a capitalist so I’m open to them writing the check. It would not change my narrative.Supreme Court IdeasBeto also states:“there is nothing in the constitution that states how many supreme court justices we have.” Robert Francsis O’Rourke a.k.a. BetoHe is wanting to pack the supreme court, but why? This is to prevent anyone like Donald Trump from ever being President again. This is to stop conservatives from saving the lives of babies. Don’t believe me. Look at what is taking place in Virginia and New York. So he loves the Constitution when it fits his narrative. So what about the right to life.Beto’s BeliefsMOUNT PLEASANT, IOWA – MARCH 15: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke talks with voters during his second day of campaigning for the 2020 nomination at Central Park Coffee Company March 15, 2019 in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. After losing a long-shot race for U.S. Senate to Ted Cruz (R-TX), the 46-year-old O’Rourke is making his first campaign swing through Iowa after jumping into a crowded Democratic field this week. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)* Supporting the abolition of for-profit and private prisons.* Supporting a ban on so-called assault weapons.* Supporting the elimination of bail sentences that require people to pay money to be released from jail ahead of trial.* Criticizing not only Trump’s border wall, but also some of the existing barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border and the increase in border security spending over the last decade. (“Yes, absolutely, I’d take the wall down,” he said in February, referring to the border fencing in the El Paso region.)* Supporting the impeachment of President Trump (O’Rourke took this stance during his Senate campaign. I doubt that he will push this issue during his presidential run, but it was somewhat surprising that he adopted it last year. Other Democrats, like 2020 hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, didn’t take this stance even as they were running in more liberal states than Texas.).* Supporting a proposal to allow anyone who wants to enroll in a Medicare-like insurance plan the option to do so.

The words of Jesus hold true today, just as they did when he spoke them. Let us always remember to never be ashamed of our Savior. He gave his life for us, and in turn we should be willing to always stand or him. God’s word is offensive to evil, and rightly so. Therefore let us work together to stand for the Bible, and make it a lamp unto our feet and a light to our path. Have a great Sunday!
Immigration Act HR6 | American Dream and Promise Act of 2019
Mar 16 2019 30 mins
Listen to the PodcastThis week Nancy Pelosi held a press conference where she gave information on HR6. HR6 immigration act also known as the “American Dream and Promise Act 2019” gives protection to those who came into our country illegally. Rep. Mark Takano stated it was a moral act that Republicans didn’t have the morals to do. Read HR6Don’t Believe the Lies Under the Obama administration, more deportations took place than under President Trump. President Trump is labeled a racist, and anti-immigrant. However, this is not factual. I know who would think a Democrat like Pelosi would lie. The truth is under President Obama in 2016, ICE removed 240,255 people from the country. A rate of more than 20,000 people per month.This was not the highest year. In 2012, the peak year for deportations under Obama, the agency removed an average of roughly 34,000 people per month.Immigration Act HR6The new legislation would return DACA and TPS status to anyone who lost it under the Trump administration. The law does not stop there. It gives easy access to citizenship to those who are either DACA or TPS. DACA’s FailureWhen Obama signed the executive order for DACA he did not provide a pathway to citizenship. So while conservatives are labels as immoral, it was a Liberal who roadblocked their citizenship. This is a political play by Pelosi, blame someone else.So how hard is it to get citizenship? That is a great question. If you ask Pelosi it is almost impossible. The truth in the matter is it is not. It is not if you do it legally. This bill is not about legal immigration at all. It is about rewarding those who have already broken our laws. Here are the requirements to be a United States citizen:* Have had a Permanent Resident (Green) Card for at least five years, or for at least three years if you’re filing as the spouse of a U.S. citizen* If you apply for naturalization less than six months before your Permanent Resident Card expires, or do not apply for naturalization until your card has already expired, you must renew your card.* You can apply for naturalization before you receive your new Green Card, but you’ll need to submit a photocopy of the receipt of your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card when you receive it.* Meet certain eligibility requirements including being* At least 18 years old at the time of filing* Able to read, write, and speak basic English* A person of good moral character* Go through the ten-step naturalization process which includes* Determining your eligibility to become an American citizen* Preparing and submitting form N-400, the application for naturalization* Taking the U.S. Naturalization Test and having a personal interviewPelosi’s Guest SpeakersWhen Pelosi introduced this bill she had two illegal immigrants speak at the news conference. One speaker stated he had been in our country for 19 years. In the 19 years he was here, why did he not work toward getting citizenship? The reason is here was here illegally. So do not hold anyone accountable, just write laws to reward breaking our laws.
Podcast Notes : Operation Varsity Blues & Pelosi’s Socialist
Mar 15 2019 30 mins
Front Porch Politics podcast is geared and ready for this mid-week update. While wealthy celebrities bribe colleges and socialists bully Nancy Pelosi, we work. Hold on to your wallets before socialists take them, and let’s dive into the mid-week update for March 13, 2019. Operation Varsity BluesFifty people, including Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the nation’s most elite schools.Federal authorities called it the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department, with the parents accused of paying an estimated $25 million in bribes.“These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in announcing the results of an investigation code-named Operation Varsity Blues.The scandal is certain to inflame longstanding complaints that children of the wealthy and well-connected have the inside track in college admissions — sometimes through big, timely donations from their parents — and that privilege begets privilege.Leftist Elites ArrestedAt least nine athletic coaches and 33 parents, many of them prominent in law, finance or business, were among those charged. Dozens, including Huffman, were arrested by midday.The coaches worked at such schools as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, Wake Forest, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles. A former Yale soccer coach pleaded guilty and helped build the case against others.Cheaters Never Win…in the End Courtesy of AL.comProsecutors said parents paid an admissions consultant from 2011 through last month to bribe coaches and administrators to falsely make their children look like star athletes to boost their chances of getting into college. The consultant also hired ringers to take college entrance exams for students and paid off insiders at testing centers to alter students’ scores.Parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee their children’s admission, officials said.“For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected,” Lelling said.Several defendants, including Huffman, were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.I do not see my Alma Mater Jacksonville State University on this list. I am guessing this is because it is not Elitist enough. The Super Progressives and PelosiOn everything from the Green New Deal to impeachment to criticism of Israel, a squad of first-year congresswomen is flexing their muscle and posing an implicit challenge to Democratic honchos like Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Their stridently liberal agenda and power to steer the national conversation via social media and press attention has fueled tensions inside the party tent that in turn are testing leadership’s control while stirring political concerns going into 2020.Let us remember that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told a cheering crowd that she “was the boss”With this statement, she quickly reminded me of the “cash me outside”...

Border Crisis: Build the Wall in 2019!
Mar 09 2019 30 mins
In this week’s podcast, we will give you evidence on why we need a border wall. America is facing a crisis at our southern border. The liberals in our country call this “fabricated.” The rhetoric is that we do not have a crisis. Conservatives are deemed as racist if they want to keep you and your family safe. It is time we sound the alarm. The trojan horse of America has arrived.Read the full podcast notes
Bernie Sanders: Do You Feel the Bern for 2020?
Mar 06 2019 30 mins
Bernie Sanders is no stranger to the American public. The socialist candidate from Vermont is seeking the Democratic nomination for 2020. Just a note all his assets are in his wife’s name, Here are some facts about Bernie Sanders socialist plans to burn America.Eight years of ObamaFormer President Obama redefined the landscape of American politics. In my humble opinion, he made race relations worse. He crippled our economy by more than doubling the national debt. And he shared a vision of “Globalism” not patriotism. Due to Obama’s refusal to support simple solutions, like tax cuts, he was the only president in American history to fail to achieve at least 3% annual growth in GDP. But his economic policy is no match for Bernie.Bernie Sanders is raising a great bit of money to become President. Sanders is a full bore socialist. The ideas that made America a powerhouse of independence and liberty will not exist in his world. The main platform to which Sanders is running on is the following.Medicare for AllIn 2017, Sanders introduced a bill to transition to Medicare for All, a system where every American would get health care through the government. As many of you know I am against this. Presidential candidate Kamala Harris said, “healthcare should be a right.” The argument is that many American’s cannot afford healthcare. The truth of the matter is, that after the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare”, the promises of government fixes were a lie. New data from eHealth shows average individual(Obamacare) health insurance premiums have increased by 99% since 2013. Over the same time period, family premiums have increased by 140%.To put this in perspective, “Medicare for all” would nearly double the size of the already bloated federal government. Doubling corporate and individual income taxes wouldn’t cover the costs. How do you grow an economy? You cut taxes, not double them.The Loss of Doctors and HospitalsSanders wants to apply Medicare’s below-market rates across the board, which would amount to a roughly 40% cut in payments to doctors and hospitals. I’m sure there are those who hate doctors making money. Sanders hates the one percenters, even though he is one. “Medicare for all” would be more expansive than anything that exists anywhere else in the world, with the possible exception of Cuba. We all know what great health care they have in Cuba. Even in Sanders’ beloved Nordic socialist paradises, people pay as much as 30% of their nations’ health costs out-of-pocket. In Communist China, almost a third of health spending is out-of-pocket.Because Sanders would eliminate prices entirely from health care, the only way to control health spending would be to slap stiff price controls on doctors, hospitals and drugs, or ration care. What would be the effect of this? There would be chronic shortages of doctors nationwide. Hospital overcrowding would be epidemic. Waits for everything from hip replacements to cataract surgery to cancer treatments would be extensive. Drug innovation would come to a virtual standstill. And there would be endless fights over the size of the government’s health budget, along with massive amounts of waste, fraud, and abuse.
AOC’s List, Nancy’s Team, and the case for Capitalism
Mar 02 2019 30 mins
As we wrap a week of house hearings, Korean negotiations falling apart, and socialism run amuck, let us not miss the behind the scenes news. Front Porch Politics will take a look at why Democrats are self-destructing, and conservatives need to awaken to a new fight for America.Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are threatening House Democrats to vote their way, or hit the highway.Source: AP Photo/Seth WenigAfter more than two dozen moderate Democrats broke from their party’s progressive wing and sided with Republicans on a legislative amendment Wednesday, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly sounded the alarm in a closed-door meeting Thursday and said those Democrats were “putting themselves on a list.”What caused this?The legislation that prompted the infighting was a bill that would expand federal background checks for gun purchases. A key provision requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns saw 26 moderate Democrats side with Republicans.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded her wayward center-leaning colleagues, telling them: “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.” “We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision.” Nancy PelosiAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ListOcasio-Cortez reportedly took it a step further. She said she would help progressive activists unseat those moderates in their districts in the 2020 elections. AOC also has shown support for illegals who purchase guns to have no background checks or submit the information any citizen would have to do.Representative Ocasio-Cortez has vehemently denounced ICE since bursting onto the political stage — but has also raised concerns among fellow Democrats that she’s picking fights with her own party.Socialist are Hurting their own Party.The Socialist movement is losing steam. According to a Wall Street Journal poll, the number of American’s who support Medicare for all has drastically fallen. In the poll, Medicare for all had support in November 2018 of 30%. Those polled in February 2019 only 12% supported the measure.Why the Decline?Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s sweeping “Green New Deal” could end up costing close to $93 trillion, or about $600,000 per household, according to a new study released by an advocacy group.In an analysis published on Monday, the American Action Forum — which is headed by a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Holtz-Eakin — estimated that the New York Democrat’s policy proposal could end up costing somewhere around $93 trillion over the course of the next decade.American’s are not stupidDespite what AOC thinks, most American’s with common sense see right through her bad economic policies. Americans have learned that the way to achieve success is hard work, not government handouts. Let us please remember that AOC only received 110,318 votes. That is .03% of the United States population. However, she touts herself as the queen. Remember she stated, “I’m the boss – how about that?” Source: BizPac Review Why Capitalism WorksThe United States unemployment rate is 4.0%.
Infanticide Vote and Racism Accusations
Feb 28 2019 30 mins
This week has already been packed full of conversation topics for the Front Porch. One thing we are learning about America is that we are bitterly divided. We have lost our moral compass as shown by a vote this week in the Senate on life. We have lost confidence in the ability of our government officials, as Rashida Tlaib calls Republican Mark Meadows a racist. Senate Democrats: Babies born can be killed.Republicans’ effort to outlaw infanticide of babies born after botched abortions collapsed Monday, falling victim to a Democrat-led filibuster in what could be Congress’s only chance to vote on the hot-button issue this year.We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.The Declaration of IndependenceThe Democrat Voting on LifeAll of the senators who have announced they’re running for the Democratic nomination in 2020, including Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Kirsten Gillibrand, N.Y., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., voted “nay”.Credit: National Right to LifeSponsors of the bill said they were driven to act by recent state laws and bills they said would allow abortions up to the point of birth — and, in at least the case of one failed piece of legislation in Virginia, would have allowed a child born despite an attempted abortion to be left to die.“It isn’t about new restrictions on abortion. It isn’t about changing the options available to women. It’s just about recognizing that a newborn baby is a newborn baby. Period,”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican. He said it made him “uneasy” that such legislation was even considered controversial.“The bill is solely meant to intimidate doctors and restrict patients’ access to care and has nothing, nothing, nothing to do with protecting children.”Senate Minority Leader Charles E. SchumerDubbed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the bill would have required that doctors care for a newborn baby who survived an abortion the same way they care for other newborns. If doctors failed to give medical care to a living baby, they would face criminal penalties.Sen. Ben Sasse, the chief sponsor, said the fierce pushback from pro-choice activists was revealing.“Planned Parenthood and others refuse to draw a line between abortion and infanticide.” “That’s what their lobbying the last week has shown. That should tell us something about what these groups are really about.”Senator. Ben SasseNew New York Abortion Law and InfanticideAt abortion groups’ urging, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month signed a bill repealing a previous law that required a second doctor to be on hand for late-term abortions, so as to provide care in case an attempted abortion instead turns into a live birth.That law also repealed a part of the law that declared such a child “should be afforded immediate legal protection under the laws of the State of New York.”Virginia is for AbortionistIn Virginia, a Democratic state delegate offered legislation to repeal similar restrictions on late-term abortions. She sparked controversy when, at a legislative hearing, she said a woman in labor and about to give birth could still have an abo...
Fatherhood and Family, Not Reparations
Feb 23 2019 30 mins
Podcast 42Democratic presidential hopefuls Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren said they both support reparations for African-Americans affected by slavery. However, evidence shows this is not the solution we need in America.Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren on Reparations“We have to be honest that people in this country do not start from the same place or have access to the same opportunities,” she said in a statement to the New York Times. “I’m serious about taking an approach that would change policies and structures and make real investments in black communities.”Warren also voiced her support for federal government reparations on Thursday.“We must confront the dark history of slavery and government-sanctioned discrimination in this country that has had many consequences including undermining the ability of Black families to build wealth in America for generations,” said Warren in a statement. “Black families have had a much steeper hill to climb — and we need systemic, structural changes to address that.”The issue with this is that we have. If we want to look at the true cultural problem then let’s see the real problem.Lack of Fathers, the Real IssueAmerica has transitioned into a country that has lost its roots in traditional family values. Gone are the days where the “nuclear” family is considered to be the goal or standard. In the most recent study conducted by National KIDS COUNT, 42% of our nation’s children from all ethnic backgrounds live in a fatherless home. the numbers increase for African-American kids to 66%. The lowest group is Asian-American at 16%. Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesThe idea of a father in the home is the minority in their culture, not the majority. The disadvantages are not from lack of government assistance, it’s from a lack of father’s. A stable home even when the family may be lower income can drastically change the future of the child. It is important to note that not all fatherless homes are from separation, abandonment, or divorce.Just the Facts on Government AssistanceSource: U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesWill throwing money at a problem, as our government typically does, solve the problem? No. To back this up with statistics, the highest ethnic group to receive government assistance is the African American Community at 48%. Almost half of the children of this race in our country already receive assistance in some form or fashion and it is not solving the problem. This compared to 17% of the Asian culture, which has a strong Father presence in the home.Trouble at SchoolIf you do not believe that a Father’s presence is important to a child then let’s ask the U.S. Department of Education. According to the 2016 data, 44% of African-American students have been expelled from school. Now there are some who will say this is racial profiling. However, the lowest population is the Asian students at 4%, the Hispanic students at 15%. Both are lower than the white student expulsion rate of 20%. Source: U.S. Department of EducationWhen I was younger my mom could discipline me. But to get my attention as I grew older, it would take my dad. See dads have a way of standing firm. He and my mother stood together in the fight to raise my sister and myself. And we were not wealthy. We grew up in a lower-middle-income home, with no ability to get government grants for college or no gover...
The Rise of Socialism in America
Feb 20 2019 30 mins
The United States of America is at a crossroads. As generations change so do the politics of the country. In this podcast, Front Porch Politics is going to give examples of why we are seeing a growth of Socialism in the United States of America.A Brief HistoryLet me take you back in time. The baby boomer generation grew out of a generation born from parents who grew up in the Great Depression and saved the world from Socialism and tyranny in World War II. The baby boomer generation saw many changes in our country: de-segration of school, Civil Rights Marches, and the United States landing on the moon. This generation also saw a threat from a foreign enemy that pushed socialist idea across the globe. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR.The USSR competed with the United States in military, space, and economics. They used tyranny and murder to gain as much ground as they could and overtake the capitalist county known as America. Soviets would flee the USSR to escape the harsh rule of an Iron fist. It is estimated that the USSR, who devalued human life, murdered over 40 million of their own citizens. However, this generation is now at retirement age. The generations who follow have a weaker view of tyranny. Why? The baby boomer generation saw the collapse of the Soviet Union. My generation existed in a time where the economic strains of Socialism took a country with natural resources, strong military, and a space program to economic catastrophe. Therefore, we declared we had beaten the Russians and between Rocky and Reagan we dismantled a wall that trapped Soviet Socialist in.A New GenerationGiven the facts from the past, a new generation has emerged. A generation that is more about fighting their parents’ ideas. One would think that this generation would see the devastation that has taken place in Venezuela, but no. They gather in large crowds to cheer on people like Bernie Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This logic is irrational, and their support is due to a lack of knowledge of history, mostly coming from the poor teaching and lecturings in community colleges and universities.Several factors have equated to this generations ideas. The promise of everything being free, and this ridiculous idea that if we do not do something we will destroy the world in 12 years. Neither are factual, there is no such thing as a free lunch, someone has to pay. The evidence against catastrophic climate change is skewed and misinterpreted to show a slant that enrages a generation to beg the government to do something. So how did we get to this generation?Higher Education InfluencesToday’s college classroom is much different. Let me give you an example. At a local community college here in Alabama, the doctrinal push is much different. Instructors now push the Socialist ideas on the students. Brain-washing them to believe that Capitalism is evil, and Socialism is much better. That countries around the world are far better than the United States, and we are stuck in an evil economic system that oppresses people. Want an example, great! In the podcast is audio that is from a Ethics classroom at a community college located in Alabama.The instructor is pushing his Socialist ideas about Nationalized Healthcare. The Ethics teacher wants free healthcare for anyone. He describes how we control one-third of all the wealth, but degraded companies gaining profit. He then tells the student a drug company CEO’s made $1.6 billion per year, that is a lie. The highest paid CEO makes roughly $26 million a year. He is planting the seed. The seed of Capitalism is bad, and Socialism is good.
Profiles in Courage: Presidents
Feb 18 2019 32 mins
Front Porch Politics would like to take a moment to recognize the men who helped mold our country. The men we are going to recognize are some of our former Presidents. This President’s Day we hope you take time to celebrate the men who made our country great, and who showed leadership to guide this great land of ours to become a world power.George WashingtonThe Prayer at Valley Forge“…the harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.”George WashingtonOn Christmas night, 1776, Washington and his men crossed the Delaware River and attacked unsuspecting Hessian mercenaries at Trenton, forcing their surrender. A few days later, evading a force that had been sent to destroy his army, Washington attacked the British again, this time at Princeton, dealing them a humiliating loss.The First PresidentStill hoping to retire to his beloved Mount Vernon, Washington was once again called upon to serve this country. During the presidential election of 1789, he received a vote from every elector to the Electoral College, the only president in American history to be elected by unanimous approval. He took the oath of office at Federal Hall in New York City, the capital of the United States at the time, establishing the phrase “so help me God.”Washington’s PrayerOh, eternal and everlasting God, direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the Lamb and purge my heart by Thy Holy Spirit. Daily, frame me more and more in the likeness of Thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in Thy fear, and dying in Thy favor, I may in thy appointed time obtain the resurrection of the justified unto eternal life. Bless, O Lord, the whole race of mankind and let the world be filled with the knowledge of Thee and Thy son, Jesus Christ.Andrew JacksonPresident Andrew Jackson“The Bible is the rock on which this Republic rests”Andrew JacksonOl’ Hickory is well fabled and disliked by many today. In the culture we live in Andrew Jackson would be seen as having toxic masculinity. There is so much more to learn about this General. Stance on ReligionDuring a trial in Nashville Tennesseeyoung Nashville lawyer: “Mr. Cartwright, do you believe there is any such place as hell, as a place of torment?”Rev.

In April 1781, he was taken prisoner along with his brother Robert. When a British officer ordered Jackson to polish his boots, the future president refused. The infuriated Redcoat drew his sword and slashed Jackson’s left hand to the bone and gashed his head, which left a permanent scar.The Battle of New OrleansIn December 1814, as diplomats met in Europe to hammer out a truce in the War of 1812, British forces mobilized for what they hoped would be the campaign’s finishing blow close to New Orl...

Green New Deal & Socialism
Feb 09 2019 30 mins
Welcome to Front Porch Politics Podcast. Discussion on the porch this week includes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Green New Deal, and Socialism in America. You will not want to miss podcast 38!AOC and Her Ideas for AmericaAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez has unleashed her new idea for America this week with the New Green Deal. Part of this New Green Features plans such as 70% taxes, elimination of cow farts, and rebuilding every building in the United States. If that is not zany enough for you there is more to this law. In the 2019 hashtag infested, Climate change world we live in there is much, much more.The Socialist IdeologyLet us begin by stating some facts about Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. She has stated that people working in multiple jobs make the unemployment rate low. Out of 154 million job holder, only 4% are working 2 full-time jobs. She compares this to people working in New York City so let’s begin there. The lowest, non-tipped, wage in New York is $13.50 an hour. According to Ms. Cortez, someone working her claim of 80 hours a week is making a minimum of $1,080.Those figures are based on having two full-time jobs at 40 hours each. If the employee is working 80 hours at one full-time job they would be eligible for overtime pay which is $20.25 an hour over 40 hours. Which is a net of $1,350 each week. Recently she stated, “it’s sad someone can’t feed their kids working 100 hours a week.” She goes on to state, “A lot of people are more concerned about being preciously factually and semantically correct than about being morally right.”The End of the World Scare TacticOcasio-Cortez has stated the end of the world is coming in 12 years. Her idea to solve all the problems economically and in the climate is the New Green Deal. Her strategy would require the phaseout of all combustion engines, i.e. gas-powered, by 2030. If you had a car before this time frame you would have to have your car retrofitted to run on battery power. That’s roughly 260 million vehicles in the United Staes. Think of that cost!Other parts of the Green New Deal include a Federal Job guarantee. This, of course, is required to give “a liveable wage” health care, and retirement benefits. This is based on a marginal tax rate. To make a long story short, if someone is making over $10 million for every $1 earned they would make 30 cents. Then is the Medicare Tax of 2.35%. Couple with New York city and state taxes, the tax rate would be 85.04%. In other words, you earn $1, you get to keep 15 cents.The issues with this are the numbers. If you implemented this tax rate it would only generate $72 billion dollars a year. To compare a Medicare for all plan old cost at a minimum $3.26 trillion dollars a year. Far below the amount gained by taxing the “rich.” When asked about how to pay for this Ocasio-Cortez replied, “No one is saying how will we pay for Space Force.” The estimated cost by-the-way is $3 billion dollars over a five year period.The Bernie Sanders effect.Bernie Sanders proposed a tax plan that would pay for the programs he was promoting. The analysis concluded that it would raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000 at a minimum of 8.8%. So ask yourself, do you want to pay 8% more in taxes each year? I thought she was concerned with only raising taxes o...

New York Abortion State of Mind
Jan 26 2019 30 mins
New York celebrates a Nazi Germany tactic by killing babies. As conservatives, it is time to stand for a righteous fight. On the front porch this week we are going to discuss abortion and its effects on our country. Let’s get this week’s political conversation started!Pro-life or Pro-deathAbortion has reinserted itself into our political conversation this week, thanks to the state of New York. While cheering with a standing ovation, the murders of the state of New York have passed a law which will allow the murder of a baby. The law was then signed by Governor Hitler, I mean Cuomo. Let me begin by giving you some sad statistics. Do you remember when El Diablo Ocasio-Cortez stated that her generation was fighting their personal World War II with Climate Change? She stated something should be done because 3,000 had died. El Diablo supports the murder of 882,000.In the United States, in the year 2017, 882,000 abortions took place. This equates to approximately 19% of U.S. pregnancies. So we are legally 20% of each year’s population. Let me makes this more clear, in New York, you cannot give the death penalty to a serial killer, but you can serially kill an innocent baby. This is not something to brag about.The Right to Life BattleMy Judeo-Christian beliefs tell me, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5) Yes, I believe that God has a purpose and design for each life, and we stop this life. This is murder any way you spin it.However, what do we as conservatives get hit with? We are told it’s a fetus or nonviable tissue. Cuomo and his cronies have a great bit of non-viable tissue between their ears, but this does not give us an excuse to stop their life. At the end of the day, murder is simply murder, but the state of New York has decided to ramp up murdering to Nazi Germany like tactics.In Nazi Germany, abortion and eugenics was a common tactic to eliminate those who were seen as a problem to the state. To draw a comparison, New York (the state) has now decided based on the battle cry “My body, my choice” that any baby who is “unwanted” can be terminated. Life belonged to the state, not the individual. El Diablo and fellow socialist from the state of New York could be considered Nazis.Emotional and psychological effects following abortion are more common than physical side effects and can range from mild regret to more serious complications such as depression. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 57.9% of women suffered from a form of emotional, or psychological problems after the abortion. These disorders include anxiety, impulse-control, substance use, eating disorders, and suicidal ideation.Financing AbortionsPlanned Parenthood raked in $1.5 Billion in taxpayer funds over the last 3 Years. We, the American taxpayers funded this organization in which I and many others stand against. This in comparison to if you adopt a child from foster care and your adjusted earnings doesn’t exceed $152,000, you’re entitled to a $10,160 tax credit. In other words, we will fund the murder of babies, but not adoptions.While women will march, and declare that it is their body, let me ask a couple of questions. Did you create that life? Did you create that life alone? The defenses I have heard have been, “what about rape victims?” Okay, let’s look at some statistics.
Alabama Fungus and Covington High Catholics
Jan 24 2019 30 mins
The weekend held a plethora of news events. From AOC says the end is near, and according to some, Christians are the evil in the world. This podcast will feature conservative commentary that should awaken you to stand for what you believe, and see a clearer picture of the transformation in our country. The End of the World & Alabama FugusThe world is going to end in 12 years unless the government takes action, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Monday at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. “And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change— and like this is the war, this is our World War II. And I think for younger people looking at this are more like, how are we saying let’s take it easy when 3,000 Americans died last year, how are we saying let’s take it easy when the end person died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system?”AOC and Climate ChangeAOC is comparing Climate Change to WWII. Let me state to all veteran’s, if you fought, were injured, or lost friends in a war let me apologize to you for her incoherent babblings. In no way does so-called “climate change” compare to World War II. And by-the-way, if the World ends in 12 years or less it’s because Jesus is coming back, and there will be Global Warming like has never been seen before. This is all about one thing, taxes. AOC wants workers to pay 70% taxes. My first suggestion is she starts paying her 70%. She can voluntarily pay this amount. In place of Trump’s tax returns let’s demand AOC’s tax returns and see where she measures up. I guarantee-dang-tee you it is not 70%. She also stated, “it’s “immoral” how America’s economic system “allows billionaires to exist… I do think a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong.”On our social media accounts, I posted something with a touch of humor for you. I posted a picture of John Madden and “Tough Acting Ticnactin.” Why? Because it’s obvious that AOC does not understand the economic prinicipal which serve our country. This is a gotcha moment where she can stir-up her base. A generation that is quickly losing the mindset that you work hard to get where you are. That one can become anything they want in America. Millenial’s think they are oppressed because they have to work their way up to $15 an hour. So they must cry for socialism, which in turn will bankrupt our country, society, and end the growth of America as we know it.Covington High CatholicsThe Kentucky high school whose students are at the center of a viral video controversy after last week’s March for Life Rally says it will stay closed Tuesday due to safety concerns. Concerns came after an edited video went viral of the students from the school being confronted by a radical racist group called the Black Hebrew Israelites and Native America activist Nathan Phillips.Video footage released over the weekend revealed the students were accosted and yelled at before Phillips and other Native American activists approached them. Another group the so-called Black Hebrew Israelites were heard shouting abusive terms at the students for wearing “Make America Great Again” hats.CNN, MSNBC,
Ending the Shut-Down, Women March 2.0, & Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Jan 20 2019 30 mins
Podcast 32 will give conservative commentary on some of the top stories from the week of January 20, 2019. The whole country is waiting for the shut-down to come to a stop. President Trump goes public with a plan which Nancy Pelosi has rejected. The Women’s March 2.0 has taken place, and Socialist and Buzzfeed will just make-up stories when they do not have one. You will want to listen!Goverment ShutdownOn Saturday President Trump offered the Democrats a proposal to end the longest ever government shutdown. Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion he has been seeking for a barrier along the nation’s southern border with Mexico. Let me first begin by stating pay close attention to who each party is working for here. The negotiations basically have two teams on the field. The first team is the American citizens. The second is illegal in our country. Please notice that the Democrats are keeping our government shut down and people out of work over non-citizens. So who exactly do they care about?House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted, “What we didn’t hear from the President was any sympathy for the federal workers who face so much uncertainty because of the chaos of the #TrumpShutdown.” Okay Nancy, let us first look at your priorities. When given the opportunity to work to end the shutdown after Christmas, you went to Hawaii. Not only this but your colleagues were as recent as this last week living it up in Puerto Rico.Secondly, you have your drawers in a wad over losing the privilege of using government aircraft to take a trip t Africa, Europe, and elsewhere. Let me state that on behalf of all the American’s paying taxes that are paying for your trips, I would prefer you stay in Washington D.C. and work to get the people back to work over venturing off to foreign lands. Nancy, you have proven your priorities. You are selfish and do not really care about the American workers. You are more concerned about your trips we pay for than putting people back to work.Thirdly, you are not the President. Just remember that you wanting to cancel the State of the Union, which is a constitutional requirement, and telling our President that the Secret Service can’t protect you all. I have full confidence in our military men and women, and those who protect us every day. So while I do find the weakness in your ability to be a leader, I do not see weakness in these men and women. You are showing your true self, and priorities and have egg all over your face. My advice is to go to Washington, stay in Washington, and do your dang job. Photo Courtsey of: MyNorthwest.comWomen’s March 2.0 On Saturday, January 19th several locations held women’s marches. Again hairy arm pitted women and men who have lost their fortitude walked in protest of President Trump. With Va-Jay-Jay hats showing, these women were holding signs in support of the 1st place loser Hillary Clinton. Several signs even signaled the desired to have Clinton as our President. Thank God she is not. The women’s march is legal, and they have a right to do so. However, I would like to remind you of the partnerships the women’s march has established. Louis Farrakhan is no doubt an anti-semite and racist. Farrakhan is in partnership with Linda Sansour. Sansour is also an Anti-semite. The movement calls for companies and groups to protest and penalize the state of Israel over ...
Food, Football, and the President
Jan 15 2019 30 mins

2019 Challenge: Know Your History | Podcast 27
Jan 02 2019 30 mins
Podcast 27As we venture into 2019 I want to extend a personal challenge to my listeners and readers. Learn who you are. Learn why you feel the way you do politically. To begin your journey I would like to share mine with you. To do this I am going to share an experience I had on January 1st. I traveled along with 7 other members of my family to Winston, Georgia. In Winston, I met a man by the name of Leon McClung. The conversations and stories I had with Mr. McClung were enough to drive the fire’s to take a stronger stand for America that I believe in. Podcast 27 will discuss knowing your history and our meeting with Mr. McClung.Mr. Leon McClungLet me begin by giving you background information on who Mr. McClung is. Leon McClung is originally from Lookout Mountain, Alabama. He is a 1948 graduate of Fort Payne High School. This was a more rare event in DeKalb County Alabama for a male in the 1940’s. An era where young boys typically did not finish school due to the necessity of having to help work on their family’s farm. Before I build this bridge I want to add why I visited Mr. Leon McClung with my family. My grandfather died when my dad was 16 years old. I grew up, therefore, having to find a connection with my grandfather through people’s stories. Often times in my life I have been told that not only do I resemble him in looks but in mannerisms. I have always been driven to learn more about this man.Mr. McClung, My Family, and KoreaThe story begins with Mr. McClung ‘s connection to my family is with my grandfather Lamar Marks. My grandfather and Mr. McClung, along with a gentleman named Mac McCollum were all drafted during the Korean War. These three gentlemen met in Ft. Payne, Alabama where they boarded a train that would take them to Washington state for their next orders. Mr. McClung stated that “We all knew that we were going to Korea. Washington was the hub to be sent on to fight in the war.” The train was to carry them to Texas, then on to Chicago, and from Chicago to Washington. However, the train had a wreck on its way to Chicago. This incident changed the course of the assignment these men would have. Mr. McClung stated, “I felt this was God’s way of taking care of me.” The wreck, however, caused the men to be delayed, something the military did not appreciate. After having the train engineer write these men a letter stating the incident to keep from being labeled as AWOL, they were then sent on to Washington. When arriving in Washington they were prepping to then depart for Korea when they learned they were reassigned to the Anti-Aircraft division in Sausalito, California. For the next two years these men, and eventually their wives would call Sausalito and Berkeley California home. Mr. McClung stated that the three families were like “family.” He told stories of how my grandmother and his wife’s kitchen windows were very close and they could communicate with each other via the window. They built bonds. Bonds that would forever connect Mr. McClung and my family.The Past GenerationsThe story that I would like to tell how our country has changed can be given by the life and example of this past generation. America and its military was a different country.

Obamacare, the SEED Program, and the Lunar Landing
Dec 15 2018 30 mins
Podcast 23This week on the Front Porch we will be discussing the topics that you may not have heard in other conservative media outlets. You will be given a fresh start to the conversation that will possibly be discussed. So pull up a chair and join in the conversation. Podcast 23 will discuss Obamacare, the SEED Program, and the Lunar Landing.The Death of ObamaCare?U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth sided with the argument put forward by a coalition of Republican-leaning states, led by Texas, that Obamacare could no longer stand now that there’s no penalty for Americans who don’t buy insurance.The U.S. Supreme Court, led by Cheif Justice John Roberts, had upheld the law in 2012, by classifying the legislation as a tax. Since Congress removed the individual mandate in 2017, O’Connor ruled, there’s no way the ACA can be allowed to stand. Essentially this was a tax plan from the beginning. Do you remember the promises?Obama on ACA – Front Porch PoliticsWe all know that this of course was a lie. While it did help with the pre-existing conditions, it failed miserably in keeping rates down and allowing you to keep your doctor. And by the way, the new push is the Socialized medicine from the Socialist Democrats that will be joining Congress in January. Remember the great statistic from Ocasio-Cortez?“$21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon.”By the way, she was way wrong in the fact that the Pentagon has not even spent that much in the time period that she is discussing. Economics genius.President Trump on ObamacarePresident Trump chimed in on Twitter, “As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!” Trump wrote.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called it an “awful ruling.” Schumer said that if it is upheld in a higher court, “it will be a disaster for tens of millions of American families. Especially for people with pre-existing conditions.” Followed by Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi said Friday’s ruling “exposes the monstrous endgame of Republicans’ all-out assault on people with pre-existing conditions. And Americans’ access to affordable health care.” Pelosi vowed action in the House when the new Congress convenes.“When House Democrats take the gavel, the House of Representatives will move swiftly to formally intervene in the appeals process to uphold the life-saving protections for people with pre-existing conditions and reject Republicans’ effort to destroy the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Article I of the Constitution & Congresswoman-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Nov 21 2018
For those of you who do not know “We the People” have 3 branches of Government. 1. Legislative which is composed of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. 2. Executive branch composed of the Presidency and Vice-Presidency. 3.

She then shined again as a champion of education by tweeting:“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.”Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd, they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare. https://t.co/fMOijEa7tF— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) November 19, 2018Now let me be the first to state I am not a great writer or for that fact speller.

A call for Amnesty for all illegals, Nancy Pelosi and the sunny slopes of long ago, and the California Fires
Nov 17 2018 30 mins
As we approach the week of Thanksgiving I would like to remind everyone of things we should be thankful for. First, let us as American’s be thankful for the freedom that we have in this country. While we bicker and fight over policies by elected officials it is important to take time to be thankful for those who have sacrificed for us to be free. Secondly, we should be thankful for the ability to live in a mostly safe country. Again, this safety is not possible by the men and women who “stand” in the front lines every day to make sure we keep our freedom. Thirdly, and this is more personal, but I feel we should be thankful for the freedom to worship God. Faith has always been an integral part of our country’s destiny, and I for one am thankful for His blessings on our country. Now let us get to the issues for this week and the upcoming week.* A call for Amnesty for all illegals, no deportation, and no immigration caps.* Nancy Pelosi and the sunny slopes of long ago. * Camp Fire of Northern CaliforniaSupport the show
French President Macron, Florida midterm Recount, & CNN will Sue the White House.
Nov 14 2018 30 mins
We hope you had a wonderful Veterans Day. While we celebrate those who fought for not only our freedom but also the liberation of other countries, we get lectured by a weak, Socialist from France about how dangerous we are to be pro-America. This coupled with the fact that we are finding that the state of Florida is still not declaring a winner in two of it’s larger races. We have anticipated a recount, and now we have it. We are awaiting this recount to declare a winner, while we learn in the process that ballots have been discovered in various location, and the Broward County Supervisor of Elections is playing hardball.
