ARE YOU IN A HAND BASKET?

I, and every American like me, have been robbed of the truth by a group of twenty-first century Master Propagandists who own the premier news stations coast to coast. As a Christian looking in, I can scarcely tell the difference in the predominant left and right political parties. THEY ALL LOOK TO ME LIKE THEY ARE ‘GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET!’ Have we, as Christians, done what we were supposed to do to stop the deceptions? Is our fate tied to the fate of political evildoers? I feel confident in telling you that in America we ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT. With the Mueller Report, we are seeing a dishonest trend in that the Master Propagandists are selling us a MISPLACED BURDEN OF PROOF. Why are we accepting it?

These Master Propagandists are telling you that The Mueller Report does not prove President Trump is INNOCENT. This is not how our American justice system works. After almost two years, 19 lawyers, 40 FBI Agents, 2800 Subpoenas, 500 Interviews, 230 Orders for Communication Records, 13 Requests to Foreign Governments for Evidence, AND SPENDING OVER 30 MILLION DOLLARS, it is beyond ridiculous that the Master Propagandists claim to need to investigate and interview the people who have already been interviewed; some for over 30 hours!

What I am not hearing enough of, is the fact that the Master Propagandists knew it was all a hoax from the beginning. Of the highest crime committed, THIS HOAX AFFECTED THE MID-TERM 2018 ELECTIONS. It is very likely that the Republican Party would have kept control of the House of Representatives had this hoax not been dragged out over the news waves in sensational manner for two years. The Master Propagandists are crooks who deserve to be incarcerated and fined large sums of money. An even more severe punishment is promised in The Bible:

“Matthew 12:36-37 KJV But I say unto you, That every idle word that men
shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

We are told, ‘there is nothing new under the sun.’ Even though this is true, seldom in our American History have we seen this level of lies and corruption. To find an equal comparison we go all the way back to the dawn of our great Republic, Thomas Paine, in The Rights of Man, 1791, said this:

“Freedom had been hunted round the globe, reason was considered as
rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.”

At the end of the day, after the lies and hoax were perpetrated upon the American people, and our President, these crooks have the nerve to say that President Trump committed Obstruction of Justice! Trump accused the criminals of being on a witch hunt. He knew he was innocent, and he repeatedly pointed out his innocence. Since when is that a crime? Of course, he repeatedly tried to appeal to some thread of honesty in his accusers. I would say that is required behavior for a Christian person.

Consider:
“Ezekiel 33:8 – 9 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

Trump, and many Conservative voices have been telling the liars and cheats, from the early days of the last Presidential race, to stop what they are doing. NOT ONLY HAS PRESIDENT TRUMP PROCLAIMED HIS INNOCENCE, BUT HE HAS CALLED OUT THE LIARS AND CHEATS AT EVERY TURN TO CHANGE THEIR WAYS.

AS CHRISTIANS, WE ARE EXPECTED TO WARN THE WICKED OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS. Salvation is available to all sinners; we need to appeal to the unsaved sinner, because we do believe they can obtain salvation – this is how we love our enemies. Clearly Ezekiel is saying that if you do not do this, you will suffer along with the wicked; however, if you warn the wicked of their ways and they do not change, they will suffer hell, and you will not suffer their fate with them. This is largely missing today among the 80+% of Americans who claim to be Christians. We are expected to be bold and to speak up, not only calling wicked by its rightful name, but warning all offenders of the ultimate consequences.

We need only to look to the parents, and grandparents of American Baby Boomers to see a Christian society that kept evil in check. Because Christian Americans did this, I grew up in a society that knew how to behave in order to live in much more happiness, safety and security. If the next two generations were actively keeping evil society in check, we would not be living in these times where everyone is afraid to openly call evil by its name.

We must each ask ourselves, am I living as Christ would have me to live? Is this America the America I want our children to grow up in? Is this America one that has a distinctive line between good and evil? Or, is this America the one where, as my grandmother would say, everyone is ‘going to hell in a handbasket?’

MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA MANGA
(Almost sounds like a Latin Dance)

MAKE AMERICA’S NEIGHBOR GREAT AGAIN
A HEALTHY MEXICO / A HEALTHY NEIGHBOR PLAN

America has been looking at the illegal immigration problem from a backwards perspective. Stop thinking in terms of what we don’t want. America does want great neighbors!

America and Mexico must build the wall to end the flow of drugs, killers, traffickers, etc. The Mexican government must promise to bring justice to the cartels, and bring peace to Mexico. The following is a path for Mexico with a great future.

Instead of the trillions we have gone into debt sending money to our enemies,
let us spend billions by spending money in our neighbor’s home land – where we
develop a great trade partner.

INITIALLY:
Pick ten Mexican cities that are ranked eleven through twenty in commerce size.
Make an offer to college graduate Mexican Dreamers and legal Mexican Immigrants.
They must bring Business Plan Proposals to the _________________.
Proposals need to be for viable business propositions that will employ between
15 to 100 illegals from the abundance America has, and this will send them home to jobs. Besides the start up funds, it will provide relocation expenses for the immediate family of the proposed business owner.
Proposed business owner agrees to have one to three experienced American citizens, and their families come to Mexico to be mentors to the proposed business owner. Would love to get veterans involved in some way.

New commerce, employing people always brings about growth – thinking homes, schools, restaurants, shopping.

WANTED: LAWYERS TO REPRESENT BABY BOOMERS IN CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

WANTED: LAWYERS TO REPRESENT BABY BOOMERS IN CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
Millions of Baby Boomers need a class action suit against their Congress for giving away our Social Security and our Medicare funds to those who did not pay into the system. Congress is giving our funds away deliberately to bankrupt BABY BOOMERS, and the USA.

REALITY CHECK – DECEMBER 2018


I have had no high hopes regarding any POTUS, SCOTUS, Senator, or Governor bringing total justice and salvation to WE THE PEOPLE. My heart, my soul, my gut has been telling me for many weeks not to put any faith in these men. The Lord will use them for His purpose in His timing, and for that I am truly thankful. I only have faith and trust in my Lord, my King, and Savior, Jesus Christ.

There will be much ado about trials and tribunals in January, and probably through the entire 2019. WE THE PEOPLE will seem to win the day, and there will be justice for some. Hopefully it will not take much time for WE THE PEOPLE to realize that our only hope is in a different kind of change.

You see, this “GREAT AWAKENING” that is happening here and around the world – should have been Christian, but it isn’t – it is purely THE RED PILL PARTY*.
(*I think I am the first one to identify this new political party.)
The ‘JESUS folks’ in the masses will not get on their knees, ask forgiveness, and put their trust in Him. Very sad. We came so close.

The End Times Can was not kicked out of the field, only kicked down the road by a week of years at the most, if that. I continue to pray for a true GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING based on our BELIEF in THE GOSPEL REGARDING JESUS CHRIST and living His Commandments. If that were to happen, everything would change overnight.

– The man-made denominations would throw out their man-made laws and rules that have divided, and sub-divided The Body of Christ – which is supposed to be ONE CHURCH – ONE BODY.
– The garbage mankind is consumed with on the SCREENS of many sizes and purposes would disappear for the lack of any following.
– We would stop the 5G disaster before it happens.
– Men and Women would be thankful for how God made them in His image and vision, instead of rebelling against THE GIFT OF LIFE from our CREATOR.
– The book of Matthew would become the first step in re-acquainting us with Jesus’ vision for our lives. I can witness to all – of first-hand knowledge of the difference in a culture of life vs. a culture of death.
– Christians would remember that ‘the way is narrow,’ and ‘no one goes to The Father except through the Son, Jesus Christ.’

There is so much more, but it is pointless to go there until a foundation of love and understanding of God’s Word bursts forth – alive – in a GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING. I pray for God’s will to be done every day.

WHO IS BEING VIOLATED THE MOST?

How do you explain U.S. Senators willing to throw American justice under the proverbial bus of character death, in light of –
– A judge of impeccable record and character;
– A judge who has passed many FBI investigations;
– A devoted husband;
– A father;
– A man who has had hundreds of classmates, adult friends, and professional relationships give him
high marks for character;
– TO BELIEVE WOMEN THEY HAVE NOT MET OR VETTED.

The same people whom Americans have rejected in the last Presidential race, are now pushing the narrative that is opposite of our judicial system:
– Any accuser can accuse you of heinous crimes, and they must be believed because “look how courageous and brave” they are to come forward;
– The good judge is not to be believed because he is a man;
– The good judge is guilty because the propaganda media says so;
– Therefore, when it is convenient for the propaganda media, you are guilty until you can prove you are innocent.

The first woman accuser cannot remember where or when the good judge – to use a Baby Boomer expression from the sixties – forcibly felt her up for a brief span of time. Her BFF says she never knew of any such incident. The witnesses the accuser has named deny any knowledge of this alleged incident.

The second woman accuser called classmates before coming forward, asking if they remembered her alleged incident where the good judge exposed himself at a party, BECAUSE SHE JUST WASN’T SURE IF IT WAS HIM. (Talk about plausible deniability!) All class mates said they did not remember any such alleged incident.

The hooker’s sleazy judge, not wanting to be excluded from this smearing party, claims he has a string of women who will testify that the good judge allegedly participated in orgy sex. I suspect these people are like the ones Soros and the Democratic Party paid to be rioters at the beginning of the good judges’ confirmation process hearings.

On a personal note: I can tell you how it feels to be railroaded in a legal proceeding. In a divorce proceeding where we both filed for a divorce, my ex, his lawyer, and the judge were in legion with each other. During the first phase of the hearing, my ex accused me of doing every bad thing he had done – primarily his infidelity. (This is called projection, and the enemy within our country loves to use projection.)

I wrote on my lawyer’s legal pad that it was all lies. She wrote on her legal pad that I would get my turn to speak, after my ex finished his testimony. She lied. Before I knew it, the gavel sounded, and it was all over. She said that I would be just fine, and she needed the money they paid her, and she would deny it if I chose to do anything about it. She knew I had no money left for attorney fees. I FELT VIOLATED.

It would seem that this kind of corruption has become the norm instead of the exception I believed it to be at the time it happened to me.  If America lets this happen to the good judge, we can all expect that our broken system cannot be fixed – so what is the point of voting. This is the reaction from you that they are now counting on.

NOW MORE THAN EVER YOUR VOTE IS NEEDED TO STOP THIS KIND OF INJUSTICE. IF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TAKES BACK EITHER HOUSE OF CONGRESS WE WILL BE DOOMED TO INJUSTICE FOR THE LONG-TERM FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

I am reminded of the prose by Martin Niemoller (1892-1934) depicting what happened when GOOD CITIZENS DID NOTHING!
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

The Ninth Biblical Commandment says, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” If we ignore what IS happening, are we not just as guilty as the people railroading the good judge? Our Judaeo-Christian law tells us that ‘A PERSON IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, BEYOND A SHADOW OF DOUBT.’

WHO IS BEING VIOLATED THE MOST? WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE.

Contact your Senators TODAY and tell them that this good judge is being railroaded by a group of people who have no respect for our Constitutional Law; and are making our Constitutional law to be null and void. If we do not stop this today, you can expect the same treatment I received, and the same treatment the good judge is receiving. On any future date you may be accused of things you did not say or do.

WHO IS BEING VIOLATE THE MOST? YOU ARE, AS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

 MY CRITICAL THINKING CLASS NOTES / RHETORICAL DEVICES

These are meant to be used when reading articles and commentary. Enjoy a deeper understanding . . .

MY CRITICAL THINKING CLASS NOTES / RHETORICAL DEVICES
I reduced the class down to less than three pages!
Juanita Holloway-Walters aka Texas Lady Juanita

PERSUASIVE:

EUPHEMISM – Good expression replacing bad one that may offend

INUENDO – Insinuation of something deprecatory

RHETORICAL DEFINITION – To influence attitude or affect behavior, use images w/ positive or negative emotions (also known as Rhetorical Explanation and Rhetorical Comparison)

DYSPEMISM – Bad expression used to tone down the good

LOADED QUESTION – Question that rests on one or more unwarranted or unjustified assumptions

RHETORICAL DEVICE – Influence attitudes or beliefs through association – adds to persuasive but not logical

DOWNPLAYER – Diminish importance of claim

PROOF SURROGATE – Expression in place of actual evidence or authority

HORSE LAUGH – Ridicule disguised as reasoning to reject claim

RHETORIC – Persuade rather than prove logically

STEREOTYPE – Oversimplified generalization about a person of a certain class

HYPERBOLE – Extravagant Overstatement

WEASELER – Expression used to protect claim from criticism by weakening it

COMMON FALLACIES:

AD HOMINEM – Argument against claim based on who made the claim instead of against the actual claim (cannot resist pointing out that The Tea Party people are attacked this way, with Ad Hominem arguments on the six o’clock news – by other political parties calling us names we would normally attribute to far left, and not debating the issues)

FALSE DILEMMA – Fallacious reasoning – x and y can both be false — false reasoning says x is true because y is false

PERSONAL ATTACK AD HOMINEM – Refusing claim because person making it we do not like, or we disapprove of them

APPEAL TO IGNORANCE – Lack of evidence against a claim doesn’t mean the claim gets any positive points

GENETIC FALLACY – YO Mama! Not really ha ha – Rejecting a claim on the basis of its origin or history

POISIONING THE WELL – Discrediting the claim in advance because we don’t like the person

BEGGING THE QUESTION – Argument in which conclusion is identical to the argument (restates argument)

INCONSISTENCEY AD HOMINEM – You can’t make that claim due to prior opposing stance (or your actions are opposite)

MISPLACED BURDEN OF PROOF – Case where burden of proof is on the wrong side

LINE-DRAWING FALLACY – Insisting that a line be drawn at x, when it could also be drawn at y or z

SLIPPERY SLOPE – Arguing that because x happens, then y and or z will also happen

CIRCUMSTANTIAL AD HOMINEM – Attempting to discredit claim by discrediting the person making the claim

PERFECTIONIST FALLACY – Concluding claim is false because its conclusion is not perfect

STRAW MAN – Ignores actual position and argues a distorted, exaggerated, or misrepresented position

PSYCHOLOGICAL & RELATED FALLACIES

WISHFUL THINKING – Accepting it because you want it to be true and vice versa

GUILT TRIP – Making someone feel guilty for not accepting claim

ARGUEMENT COMMON PRACTICE – Justify or defend on grounds that everyone knows it or does it

NATIONALISM – Because of nationalism one may be led to blind endorsement of policy or claim

ARGUMENT FROM ENVY – Induce acceptance by arousing feelings of envy

ARGUMENT FROM OUTRAGE – Invoking anger with inflammatory words followed by conclusion

ARGUMENT BY FORCE – Using threat to support some conclusion

ARGUMENT BY PEER PRESSURE – Threatened by rejection if you don’t accept a claim

GROUP THINK FALLACY – Identifying with a group takes the place of reason and deliberation on an issue

ARGUMENT FROM PITY – Supporting claim by invoking pity rather than legitimate argument

SCARE TACTICS – Frightening scenario instead of facts to get someone to see it your way

ARGUMENT FROM POPULARITY – Convince of argument just because all or most believe it

SMOKE SCREEN – Irrelevant topic introduced to lead you away from original issue (Politicians in Washington like this one)

RATIONALIZING – False pretext to satisfy our desires or interests (teens love this one)

SUBJECTIVISM – An assumption that is true for one person, yet not for another

RED HERRING – Same as SMOKESCREEN

ARGUMENT FROM TRADITION – Using tradition as the basis of a claim

RELATIVISM – Error that two different cultures can believe different on a fact (oh, I could write a book on this one)

TWO WRONGS MAKE A RIGHT – Saying I can hit you because you would hit me

SCAPEGOATING – Placing the blame on a person or a group in error because they are an easy target
