14212540_10209250439650696_4928376597585475848_nCOMMON SENSE: We all remember where we were and what we were doing, when we heard about the attack on 9/11. I was in a Barnes & Noble with Ernest Pullen, when his wife, Melanie Dugger Pullen, called, telling us about it. At first, it didn’t seem plausible that we had been attacked. By the time the second tower was hit, I had returned home and saw it on TV with Jim Smith.
 
Renewing my mind, from that moment forward, I have never altered my viewpoint or perspective. We were attacked by Radical Islamic Terrorists—by those who want to destroy us and our American way of life. To them, we are all the Great Satan—not just some of us.
 
On this day, let us remember we are Americans first and political opponents second. Many disagree with my worldview and I disagree with theirs. Nevertheless, none of us want to cut off each other’s heads. That we can argue without killing each other is what makes us different, but it is also what makes us strong.
 
Remember, Jihadists have a sense of history, which makes every anniversary of 9/11 is a particularly dangerous day for Americans, so be careful.

COMMON SENSE: World War II ended in August 1945. When it did, Germany and Japan were reduced to rubble. Pouring money and ideas into both nations, we began the arduous task of nation building, with surprising success. Both Germany and Japan embraced democracy and have become strong allies of the United States ever since. When the Korean War ended, we used the same strategy in South Korea, and they have also become a strong democracy and ally.
Having been so successful, the United States has maintained the conviction that we can win every war and successfully rebuild vanquished enemies into successful democracies, just like we did in Germany, Japan, and South Korea. As successful as that model was, it doesn’t always work. In fact, it has never worked again. Yet, we keep trying to replicate it, despite having failed miserably in Indochina and the Middle East.
The reason we are no longer successful is we are trying to force our solution on people who don’t want it, especially in the Middle East. People who want Sharia Law have nothing but contempt for constitutional democracy. Remember seeing the footage of people with a black thumb in Iraq, showing us they had voted? Although this made us feel good, it was an illusion. It seemed like we had won but we hadn’t. That was an illusion as time has revealed.
We need to realize that our post World War II model no longer works. We cannot successfully impose our will on others. This was Bush 43’s error and Obama’s too. Instead, out of self-preservation, where political Islam is concerned, our policy should be one of containment. It’s all we can do, but it’s all we need to do to remain safe.

MAR-A-LAGO MONOLOG: Mr. Trump, as I watch how the mainstream media has taken it upon themselves to “protect” us from you, I am amazed. Not one thing about you is being judged or reported on merit—not one thing. Instead, everything they say falls into a carefully crafted narrative, making you seem dangerous and reckless, which you are not, but your opponent, Hillary Clinton, is.
The media is projecting onto you Hillary Clinton’s egregious character qualities—all in an attempt to uplift her by marginalizing you. Those of us who have the ability to discern the media’s true motives understand what is happening, and we want to thank you for standing strong for us. America needs you at this critical hour of history. Hang in there, Donald, and be strong. In the long run, it will be worth it.

imgresCOMMON SENSE: Bitterness is hardened anger. Nobody wants to be bitter, but it’s inevitable, when you succumb to self-righteously embrace your wounds—when you justify them as being right—rather than turn them over to God. If you place them in God’s hands, over time, you can become a forgiving person. If you can muster the courage to do that, you will become a person of value, a person who demonstrates the positive fruits of the Spirit of God.
 
Unfortunately, few choose to forgive. Because they do not own enough of their own souls, people like this chafe instead. They continue to justify their woundedness rather than abandon it. By embracing their acrimony, they think they are hurting the other person, but they are only hurting themselves. Unwittingly, they allow emotional poison to become self-consuming, destroying their future.
 
Ted Cruz demonstrated this error for us last night. Does he have justification to be bitter? Of course, he does, but his actions only hurt him—not Donald Trump. I hate that this has happened, but it has. Like all of Life’s lessons, I hope Cruz learns from it, but I doubt he will. Instead, like millions of others, he will choose to justify his actions, which are so unlike the Lord, Cruz talks about serving.

2015-09-09T150245Z_1_LYNXNPEB880UT_RTROPTP_4_USA-ELECTION-CLINTON-e1442078799615COMMON SENSE: It’s time to pivot our focus. Forget about trying to win over the #NeverTrump people. Some will eventually come around, but most will remain bitter. They prefer it that way.
 
It’s time to conceptualize this campaign as a movement. It’s an epic battle for the heart and soul of America, fought between the Children of the Light and the Children of Darkness. This doesn’t mean that all of us are good and all of them are bad, but it does mean we have an entirely different way of looking at life.
 
We believe in American exceptionalism; they believe that the USA is responsible for most of the world’s problems. We are strongly patriotic; they are ashamed of our nation. We believe in God; most of the Children of Darkness do not. We believe in personal responsibility, while they believe the ends justify the means. We want to make America great again, while they mock at us, while they are convinced America was never great in the first place.
 
The Children of Darkness support Hillary Clinton. Because their deeds are Evil, they have a vested interest in desiring the darkness her success will bring. Because their numbers are legion, it will require each of us to be strong. We must stand firm and never again be intimidated by their contemptuous mocking.
 
We will bend our knee to Almighty God but never to the will of the Children of Darkness. For such a time as this, we have been prepared. Will we prevail, or will we be the generation that is responsible for the lights going out on the City on the Hill? The answer is in our hands.

thCOMMON SENSE: Barack Obama began his Presidency by receiving the Nobel Peace Prize—not for what he had done but for what he was going to do. Teaming with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, this dynamic duo hit the “Reset Button,” not only with Russia but also in the Middle East. Bolstered by their erudite Progressive worldview, the United States finally had the leadership we needed to right what was wrong and usher in a more equatable system—the New World Order.
Now, as Obama’s second term is about to expire, instead of marveling at his accomplishments, we have to shake our collective heads at what a monumental failure he has been. The Middle East has destabilized dramatically, except for Iran, where they are busy producing nuclear weapons to destroy Israel and us—thanks to Barack Obama. Russian imperialism has ramped up considerably, and the European democracies are being destabilized by Radical Islam, which neither Obama or Hillary have the ability or moral courage to oppose adequately. All they can do is bluster, which they do routinely.
With Obama dancing the tango and Hillary selling favors to the highest bidder, our republic is being threatened by an Evil Wing of Islam that our leaders refuse to acknowledge even exists. Despite this, in his mind, Obama believes he has earned his Nobel Peace Prize, and Hillary is making plans to extort one for herself.
We can stop this nonsense dead in its tracks, of course, but will we? Or, will we continue on the path of certain destruction by arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

COMMON SENSE: If there was any doubt that a “Fix” has been set for Hillary, then Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s testimony should confirm to you your worst suspicions. Lynch sat there, under oath, and stonewalled the committee, providing them with her carefully crafted response, and nothing more. She said the same thing so many times that it seemed like her mantra.

 
There was no explanation. There was no transparency. There was no remorse or anything aimed at being forthright. She is a lawyer, and she parsed her words carefully, refusing to be honest with the committee or the American people, which is her duty.
 
Right before our eyes, the Rule of Law has been mocked. With Bernie endorsing Hillary this morning, our nation is being hijacked, right out from under us. All that stands in the way of the triumph of Evil is for the people to vote Crooked Hillary in.
 
Will we? I don’t know, but I do know this: Our nation is in peril.
