One Year Ago Today: Freedom Of Speech Was Attacked By ISIS & Donald Trump

One year ago today, was the attack on Pamela Geller’s “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” in Garland, TX.

Pamela Geller has commemorated this date with the writing of an article which appears on her website as well as on Breitbart News: “Today is the first anniversary of the Islamic State’s first attack in the homeland.

Pamela’s blog post begins this way (emphasis is mine):

Today is the one year anniversary of the jihadi attack on our free speech event in Garland, Texas. I know of no commemorations or remembrance of the brave Americans who staved off the attack in Garland. Unlike “Boston Strong” (they have been anything but), Garland was truly “Garland Strong. Taking out those jihadis was a real American response and we had the best of all possible outcomes. San Bernardino, Chattanooga were Garland without guns.

As for me, how am I commemorating? I am alive, that’s how.

And I, for one, am very thankful that Pamela’s alive. She’s a rare, gutsy gem in America today. She is a one-of-a-kind American treasure.

In Pamela’s article today she addresses the treatment she received from many in the media and some in politics following the attack. She also chronicles nearly 80 other instances of jihad attacks in the United States that have occurred within the last year. Go HERE to see the list. It’s jaw-dropping.

Now, because this is an election year and I’ve been focused solely on it here on my blog, that will not change in this post…

Following the jihadi attack in Garland, TX, Donald Trump spent the next few days smearing and belittling Pamela Geller for DARING to hold her event. He actually had the gall to call her an “obnoxious blowhard” (among other things) for hosting the event. In December 2015 I chronicled most of what Trump said about Pamela in the video below. I emailed the video to Pamela and she posted it on her blog and on all of her social media sites. She included the video again today in her commemoration of the 1st anniversary of the attack.

If there’s one thing this video makes CLEAR, it’s that Donald Trump loves his OWN freedom of speech, but he has little regard for the freedom of speech of others.

For contrast, Texas Senator Ted Cruz responded to the Garland attack this way:

“Thankfully one police officer helped them meet their virgins.”

On May 10, 2015, Pamela Geller endorsed Ted Cruz for president.

Today, Pamela made two mentions of Trump. First, in her listing of those in the media and in politics who attacked her in the aftermath of the Garland event: “Donald Trump said I was an obnoxious blowhard (!) who was taunting Muslims.” (That is the sentence on her blog that includes the link to my video today.) Secondly, here: “Ironically, Donald Trump is suffering the same abuse I received from him, for speaking candidly about jihad terror and Muslim immigration.”

Good. If anyone deserves that kind of abuse, it’s that ignorant bastard. Not Pamela Geller.

Heidi Cruz In Norfolk, Nebraska (VIDEO)

Hey…I live in Norfolk, NE and…

Heidi Cruz visited Norfolk, NE Monday night to deliver a speech on behalf of her husband and GOP presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). The speech took place at the “Black Cow Fat Pig” restaurant in downtown Norfolk.

Heidi’s speech was 24-minutes long (see video below) and following it she spent more than the next 90-minutes doing a “meet and greet” with those who wished to meet her and have their picture taken with her or have a book-signed. I counted approximately 80 people present during the speech and I’d guess that there were at least that many that met her after the speech.

There was relatively little advance notice about this event that took place today…at least from my perspective, anyway. I found out about it about 3-4 hours before it started. A friend of mine had called to tell me about it and she told me that she had also called several other friends of hers to let them know and none of them knew it was taking place. Many of them wanted to attend and would have done so if they’d had more notice.

A few notes about Heidi: She’s absolutely genuine. She struck me as someone who is very down-to-earth and very approachable. She was very receptive, very friendly, and as genuine as you would HOPE that she would be. I was thoroughly impressed with her. (There’s been one other person I’ve met in my life who also gave me the exact same impression as did Heidi Cruz…and, that was Sarah Palin – whom I’ve met twice.)

I spoke with Heidi for about 2 1/2 minutes and we discussed a few of the surprising things that have occurred this election season…some of the people who’s endorsements have surprised us and some of the once stalwart “conservative” media that apparently is NOT what we thought it was. I said to her “the line is being drawn in the sand on the Conservative side of things and once this is over, we’re all going to have a much better idea of exactly where people stand.” I came away from our “meet” with the distinct impression that she agreed with that statement.

I was honored to have the opportunity to meet her. Thank you Heidi for coming to Norfolk.

What The Trump Crowd Doesn’t “Get” About Politics (“You Must Be Voting For Hillary?”)

Poor Ben Carson appeared with Hannity last night and made this “brilliant” suggestion:

“I’m starting to think that many of the so-called ‘Republican establishment’ – of course they say there is no such thing, ‘we don’t exist,’ but we know they do.

I believe that many of them would prefer to have Hillary in there, than to have Donald Trump.

Because she is part of the political establishment and can be controlled, whereas Donald Trump cannot be controlled.

And they’re not interested in – Democrats or Republicans in the ruling class – of having somebody that they can’t control.”

My problem with what Ben said is this:

62+ Reasons I Will NEVER Vote For Trump & Don’t Understand Why ANYONE Would

Another reason not to vote for him.

I will never vote for Donald Trump for many reasons. The following list of reasons is my own and they are NOT listed in any order of importance to me. They are ALL important as together they ALL speak to the type of individual for whom I will never vote.

Trump Supporters Think They’ve Cornered The Market On…

…anger.

(Check out the video below if you’d rather have this post read to you.)

Trump supporters are “angry” at “the government” (aka “politicians“) for screwing them over…so now, they’re going to vote for someone who BRAGS about being a major crony capitalist and engaging in that political screwing-over of the little guy for decades to FIX that at which they say they’re ANGRY. This is precisely what leads many of us to refer to Trump supporters as “stupid.” But, there’s more…

I’ve been a literal “member” of that “angry” crowd since April 15th of 2009 (the date of the 1st TEA Party I attended here in town)…but now, because I’m not a Trump supporter, according to Trump supporters, people like me must no longer be “angry” about how politicians screw over and completely ignore their constituents. They think they have “cornered the market” on “anger” in the populace. They make no sense. There’s NOTHING about ANY of this that makes ANY sense. But they get mad (madder) when, in our own moments of weakness, we call them “stupid” for making NO SENSE. When they behave like the star-struck, wholly ignorant Obama voters of 2008 and we call them on it, they get even madder. They react by throwing another Trumpertantrum, digging-in their heels, name-calling, and VOWING to vote for Trump. Basically, they react like Trump does to women like Megyn Kelly who ask him questions he’s incapable of answering. In other words, they act like their new hero, the big, fat bully, Trump. And, the MORE Trump acts out, the MORE EMPOWERED his supporters feel to behave exactly like him. It’s a sickening reality to witness…especially within the so-called “Christian” adult population in the United States.

MANY of the Trump supporters who claim to be “angry” have been BEGGING for a “Constitutional Conservative” candidate to STEP FORWARD and he has…his name is Ted Cruz. But, because all the Trump supporters are believing ALL of Trump’s LIES about Ted Cruz (and other conspiratorial-type bullsh*t about Ted) they’re foregoing what they’ve SAID they WANTED for the past 7+ years and are voting for the candidate with the most LIES, the most BLUSTER, and the BIGGEST MOUTH.

Trump has held BOTH sides of nearly EVERY issue…and he’s STILL changing his positions on his OWN typed out PLANS on his website almost weekly. NONE of this matters to the “angry” people. They just want to elect a BLOWHARD who they think will make them FEEL better. And, it DOESN’T MATTER to them if he has to govern as a fascist to accomplish it. I’ve read several comments from Trump supporters who’ve stated exactly that. Some have even said they “look forward to it.”

This is the terminally sad condition of the United States today.

She’s on life-support.

Voting for Trump is akin to tripping over the cord on the machines keeping her alive and pulling the plug out of the wall.

Trump Targeted On Stage After He Taunts Another Protester In Ohio (VIDEO)

Trump turns to see who or what is coming at him. 

Two separate incidents with protesters at a Donald Trump campaign rally in Dayton, Ohio occurred within the past hour.

The 1st protester appeared in the middle of the crowd…in front of Trump (The protester is not visible in the video below but, Trump addresses him/her with taunts).

The 2nd protester
, who is also not visible, either tried to get on the stage with Trump, or ran into the stage (causing the stage to shake) and was quickly put down.

(FOX News Network is reporting that someone threw something at Trump.)

I’m typing what I saw while I was streaming the live event

Insanity! Sarah Palin & Drudge Join Forces With Those Who Smear Them

Again, I sit here with my chin on the floor as I compile another blog post. The absolute nuttiness of this campaign season is off the hook. Almost every day I see something else that I just can’t believe or make ANY sense out of.

The very first thing I saw when I woke up this morning was the series of new headlines posted on the Drudge Report as seen in the photo on the right. Matt Drudge is “all in” for Donald Trump to become president…he’s made that very apparent with all of his positive headlines for Trump and all of his negative headlines about Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Today, Drudge has
