Social Media 'friends' and Critical Issues

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

As publisher of The Patriots Press my goal is to keep things as interesting as possible for all of my readers and I try to cover as many areas and topics as possible.  I also use my personal perspective to condense what I consider to be the hottest news items of the day or week into brief, easy to understand, laser Op/Ed articles that are designed to make the reader think.  There is also space on every article for reader comments, which as long as the content of those comments remain on point, clean, and without abusive language, I do not invoke my right to remove or edit them.

I don’t ask for agreement, but I usually challenge my readers with my opinions and have witnessed some very colorful open dialogue between them.  

As a result of this, I am often invited via the various social networks, like minded media, and by individuals and groups to voice those opinions in the broader public arena at various speaking events and on occasion via live radio broadcasts.  I might add, I am always humbled and honored to do so.    

As often as not, my topics have generally centered around faith and political issues, and I often combine them where I believe necessary; and that brings me to the gist of this very brief article.

I won’t deny for a minute that sometimes I offer something frivolous on my personal pages of the various social media with which I am associated; maybe a clean joke or two, or even the occasional photo of a cute animal. However, on The Patriots Press pages, I try to remain completely focused on the task at hand, and use those pages to distribute my messages, resorting to frivolity only when I consider it pertinent to a recent story.  

Very recently, within the last 48 hours really, a social media group that had solicited my membership quite a while ago decided that my work was no longer welcome on their page.  Then, instead of politely asking via a private message, they made it public on a post of mine that I should stop posting the very information that I would venture prompted them to solicit my membership in the first place.  That post and their comment have since been removed and I have been removed as a member of said group.

Well, I thought about that for a moment.  Some folks might be highly offended or whatever by such an unprovoked action, however I wear such ‘rejections’ as a badge of honor.  Apparently, things I’ve had to say did make some people, at very least the administrators, think about things and issues they find very uncomfortable, and for that I offer no apology.  My writings, warnings, and opinions of world events are regarded by the vast majority of my readers as very important and very timely, and as long as I’m able, I have no intention of slowing down their frequency nor toning down the content.  

I also want to make it very clear that I have no problem with sanitized discussions about girl scout cookie recipes, reminiscing about the good old days of one’s hometown, and all of the other trivial items bandied about as topics of the day, because they are necessary to help us wind down from the harsh realities of the world.  I would however, consider it a great dis-service to my readers if I didn’t attempt to remove their heads from the sands of frivolity and keep them reminded and focused on the really important issues that affect us all. 

That said, I would invite, nay insist, that any group or individual on any of my distribution lists or channels that finds my observations and commentary too painful to read and be posted where they can see them, to please block, un-friend, and or remove me by whatever method is applicable to the media used.  Additionally, while I would appreciate anyone doing so to “man up” and send me a private message as to your intent, it isn’t absolutely necessary as I know who my friends are.

In closing today, I would like to thank all of my faithful readers and and friends for your continued support and encouragement.

Cliven Bundy...minor Hoof 'in' Mouth Disease

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Cliven Bundy is a rancher; he works around other ranchers and cattle, and until very recently has probably not been much of a public anything, let alone a public speaker.  Therefore, I believe it safe to say that he isn’t real smooth with his words.

I don’t know Mr. Bundy, and I don’t expect that I ever will.  However, while he obviously lacks polish, it seems to me that he didn’t state anything different than a lot of other people, including myself when it comes to the ‘plight’ of minorities.  

In a nutshell, I don’t think anyone would argue that one of the darkest chapters of America’s history was the era of slavery.  However, no one that knows history should fail to see the similarities between the Cotton, Tobacco, and other plantations of old to the dark chapter of Government Welfare Plantations. 

In the former, those in bondage were held on the plantations with literal whips and chains, and provided with just enough shelter and sustenance to stay alive; it became such a way of life, that many were fiercely loyal to their ‘masters’ for the provisions they had.  

In the latter, those in bondage are held by the metaphorical whips and chains of various programs including just enough shelter and sustenance to stay alive, and it has become such a way of life that many are fiercely loyal to their ‘new masters’ for the provision they have.  

The only real difference is the boundaries of the plantation.  The ‘masters’ are the same and use the same methods of control.  The slaves; old and new, have all been bought with any combination of money, food, shelter, and now cell phones and votes.  The resulting bondage to the ‘masters’ is the same.

That’s what I think Mr. Bundy was probably trying to say.  Sadly, because he now has a huge target on his back, Mr. Bundy is going to be demonized anyway the ‘master’ can find, and this was a prime example.

Be careful Cliven Bundy.

They're line dancing in hell

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

I’m probably going to catch a lot of heat for this little tome, but so be it.  You know that story about the woman in Utah that killed a heavy half dozen of her children that isn’t getting nearly enough notice in the main stream media?  Well, I’ve been doing some thinking about it and naturally I thought I’d share those ponderings. 

The only thing about the Megan Huntsman story that really shocks me is the number of her victims that no one knew about!  Some pretty bizarre facts surround this case; such as no one, not the three grown children living in the house with Megan Huntsman during the events, not one nosey neighbor, not her husband, not even a passing stray dog ever picked up the scent of death?!  No one took notice that not one, not two, or even three, let alone all seven of her babies were missing?!  

I won’t belabor all of the bizarre twists, as the reported story is just too loaded with unanswered questions.  However, what really shocks me is the double standard.

According to the story, there are only six counts of murder, so I’m thinking that one of the babies may have been stillborn.  However, in light of the intense lobby constantly pushing for more 'reproductive/abortion’ rights, including late term and post-partum abortion, which potus is apparently all good withthe question I considered is why is she being charged at all?

In another case that I’ve always considered a very extreme example of post-partum abortion, coming up on 4 years ago, Casey Anthony was acquitted in the death of her 2 year old baby Caylee.  Whatever actually happened to that precious child, we’ll never know, however Casey at very least knows more than was ever divulged.  The bottom line in that case was Caylee was found in a trash bag, like so much garbage, in a wooded area.  God knows the real story, and it’s now between Him and Casey.

Getting back to Megan though; had she visited Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider, those babies would have been destroyed 'legally’ with no murder charges attached right up to the moments just before or just after any of the births.  The way I see it, she simply eliminated the middleman as it were.  Either way, clinic or kitchen sink, those babies would be no less brutally butchered and dead. 

How is it that the abortion rights camp is silent on this?  Where is it written that the brutality of abortion has to be performed in a clinic?  Was Megan not simply exercising her 'right’ to abort unwanted pregnancies?  In a world where criminal trespassers are called "undocumented immigrants” and drug dealers are treated like "unlicensed pharmacists,” not to mention a Federal Government that has reduced itself to a crime syndicate via events such as Fast and Furious and Benghazi, why is this woman not getting a similar pass?

For real, I do not understand murder charges against this woman when approximately 3500 or so babies in the US meet their maker via abortion providers every single day without earthly penalty.  Does a medical degree or licensing from a state somehow lessen the degree or horror of the carnage?  Was the stuffing of her 'home abortions’ into cardboard boxes and leaving them in the garage any more or less gruesome than the recent heating of hospitals in the UK by incinerating 15,000 or more aborted babies?

Friends, I think you get my point by now.  It’s not so much about the deed, as it is who sanctions it. The silence from both sides of this issue is deafening.  On the left, we have Planned Parenthood, a group with huge taxpayer funding which was founded by racist Margaret Sanger whose intent was the extermination of the “negro” race.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole, if the truth be told of what they do, should be rushing to this woman’s aid since she was doing the same thing they do.  Baby murder is murder no matter who sanctions it or the method used.

On the right, no one that finds abortion, pre or post natal, as abhorrent as I do should be silent.  This entire story lends a lot of credibility to my recent and continuing study of the growing destruction of our youth, whether via abortion right from the start or via the rapidly increasing scourge of pedophilia.  

As I have previously written aboutwe have resorted back to offering our children to molech via their destruction, and I have to believe that he and satan are joining their demons doing the happy dance together in the bowels of hell.

Bundy Ranch...America under siege

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

They’re talking about it on the streets, in bars, grange halls, barber shops, little league games, and the malls.  The story that wouldn’t go away is now on everyone’s mind, all around the world.  

Lots of truth and lots of misinformation is flying from both sides of the issue; lines are quickly being drawn in the sand and as the world holds its breath, Patriots from all over America are converging on a ranch in Nevada in support of one man and his family that have had enough of an over-reaching government involved in selective enforcement.  I say selective because far more egregious laws are ignored all the time.  At the end of the day, all that happened was his cattle were grazing; and for that…all of this! 

In case you live in a cave deep in the Amazon and haven’t heard, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his family have become the unwilling poster children for ‘enough is enough.’  Because, while it is their issue with the government that is raging at center stage, it is merely a symptom of a much larger problem that pits We the People against what has become a bloated, self-serving goliath of tyranny.

Let’s break it down to bite sized chunks here for a minute so it’s easy to understand and wrap your arms around.  First of all, the Bundy’s have been ranching and “homestead” grazing their cattle on that same property in Nevada since at least 1888.

Since the early 1990’s they’ve been in a legal battle with the government concerning not only who owns the land, but also about their right to continue grazing on it after over 125 years.  There is also an issue regarding some sort of per cow grazing fee which they have chosen not to comply with. 

Fast forward to 2014 for a moment and suddenly there are “endangered” Tortoises on that property that the government feels the need to protect from this horrible rancher and his cattle.  Mind you, in all the time and all the cattle raised since 1888, few, if any Tortoises have been harmed or even complained about it.  

So, if you’ll pardon the intended pun, what’s the beef all about?  Glad you asked.  This is not about the tortoises at all; in fact, the “endangered” creatures are so plentiful that, According to an article dated 8/25/13, in the Las Vegas Huffington Post, because of a lack of Federal funding the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center can no longer care for the turtles that they've been caring for since the animals were added to the endangered species list in 1990 and, as a result, "...Officials expect to euthanize more than half the animals in the coming months in preparation for closure at the end of 2014."   Notice that date from last summer.

Now enter everyone’s favorite rat of a senior senator from Nevada, Harry Reid.  It seems that the good senator, like so many in DC, believes he is somehow above it all, and can just do whatever he pleases. Oh, did I forget to mention that Harry owes some favors to a top donor named Harvey Whittemore that happens to be in the Real Estate Development business?

Or that his son is the lead representative for a Chinese concern wanting to build an energy plant on the land?  

Let’s not forget that his former senior advisor, Neil Kornze was recently placed at the helm of the BLM and they purged the real goal from their website in an attempt to hide it.

The corruption surrounding this entire scam reeks to high Heaven; however, as I said earlier, I believe this is a symptom of a much bigger problem.  Sure, a Nevada Rancher is at the center of attention right now, but the real deal is the pushing.

Frontrunner Republi'crats'....get ready to gag

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Op-Ed

Well, it’s official now!  The mostly unseen power brokers who decide every four years, (maybe every 8 years really) which Republican and Democrat good 'ole boy is going to get rammed down the collective throats of We the People, are starting to court the potential front runners.  So, as they sit high in their Ivory Towers, smoking those big fat stogies, inhaling that fine Cognac, maybe patting some evil looking, hissing, white kitties, and sharing their devilish Austin Powers’ "mwahahahahaha’s,” I have to wonder what those conversations must sound like.     

As a note, this will mostly discuss the Republican Candidate decision since, while I believe the same Ivory Tower people actually decide both sides, it’s has become my forgone conclusion that the Democrats will always choose the most far left, Godless, un-American person they can dig up, (can you say Obama?)…with the Republicans running the one that most closely lines up with them while still offending the senses by keeping an ‘R’ after his/her name.  It’s a joke!

I guess since they’ve no doubt already decided who it is, it probably amounts to just a matter of how they’ll roll that person onto the stage and paint them to look less than liberal with a fancy title such as 'moderate’ or ‘middle of the road.’  We’ll hear all the normal terms like, "viability,” "electability,” and lots of other rhetoric.  Never will we hear anything like, "gee, who might the base actually want and like,” or "which of these aligns themselves with the original conservative platforms of the party?”  No matter who it is, they must of course be deemed ready and able to raise an Aircraft Carrier sized boatload of cash. 

No one will bother to look at the conservative credentials of the choice; y’know, the credentials that used to identify what it meant to call oneself a republican?!  Now of course, the candidate must be an Ivory Tower approved name brand, even, nay, especially, if that brand reeks with the un-removable stench of liberalism.  They’ll try to perfume it up and give that stench all sorts of pretty names, "tolerant” and "progressive” to name a couple, but in the end, it has the odor of an open sewer leading from a landfill full of excrement.  The sort of stench that causes seagulls and vultures to hold their noses when flying overhead; but We the People be damned, the political favors and all the rest have to be considered, and then it all rolls down to the local REC’s and DEC’s.  If you don’t know, those are the Executives Committees for each party.  

That’s where the party faithful on both sides, the guys and gals that do all the heavy lifting in the trenches, will once again don their party’s hats and get behind the candidate that the party bosses tell them they’ll get behind.  However begrudgingly, they’ll make the calls, walk the neighborhoods, attend the various events and make the surrogate speeches, and they’ll even start believing a lot of the manure they have chosen to be bullied into spewing.  Enough of them on one side will most certainly commit fraud again to ensure the victory of their candidates, not that it really matters who wins because we’re screwed either way.  The only real difference I see between the parties anymore is the rate that we reach the ultimate disaster we’re headed for.  I don’t even mind spelling that out for you.  We’re either going down very fast with a 'moderate’ Republican; or greased lightning fast, with a 'liberal’ Democrat.  If ever there was a time to man the lifeboats?!
