RNC Night One

So having watched parts of each night of the DNC ( part curiosity and partly hoping there would be substance) I was struck by their overtly Doom and Gloom message that America sucks, it is totally messed up, always has been and needs a major overhaul. 

Last night the RNC opened it’s convention with a message in stark contrast to that of the Democrats. Here are my takeaways:

America is not all Doom and Gloom

America was not messed up from the Beginning

American founding principles make it the greatest nation ever 

Yes, America has problems, but they are solvable if we work together

We should be Proud to Be an American

There were some truly remarkable speeches made last night a few of my favorites were:

His line from Cotton to Congress was most memorable 


This Cuba Refugee’s emotional plea and LOVE of America was amazing


So Trump is a racist, just ask Herschel. 


This real life survivor story was powerful

And finally but not by any means least, 

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting massacre (Sorry could not load video direct) 

New to Ponder (Various Sources)

As always; these are opinion and news pieces mainly from a conservative constitutionalist view and do not necessarily reflect the beliefs, doctrine and views of this ministry or any individual associated with it. They are provided for and intended for individuals to be able to read and form their own opinions and views on issues at hand. (Sad that we even have to explain this!) 

Opinion! = Yesterday I was in a discussion over a social media post (go figure) entitled De Blasio’s Wife Can Not Explain Where The $850 Million Went one individual commented ‘thieves, daughter is looter rioter’ another responded ‘she’s not a looter, maybe a rioter yes. Fighting for Black Lives That Matter. Trying to help to make a change’ to which I responded BLM is a joke, they of course stermly (all BOLD) disagreed, and I responded, “get educated and read the manifesto. Originally organized by socialist borderline communists. Now locking arms with Antifa. Belong in jail nowhere else. No respect” They ended withI’m speaking in terms of lives, nothing more, nothing less, no need to be educated. Life, Not an organization.”

My point for this is simple there is always a need to be effectively educated otherwise we make statements like BLM is good because we have been fed the liberal propaganda hook, line and sinker. Do black lives matter, DUH! but does the organization BLM really care about Black Live?  Not that I can see, if they did why are they not peacefully protesting the thousands of Black Babies MURDERED in abortion mills each year. Why are they not out peacefully protesting the hundreds of black children MURDERED in senseless drive by shootings each years. Why are they not peacefully organizing and working for change? Because they really do not care; read their manifesto and get educated.
