Since it’s Monday, and I know y’all are all fired up, energetic, and ready to face the week ahead, I thought we’d start things off with a couple of educational videos to help Generation Snowflake navigate the modern world. I’m embedding a couple of videos, because that’s what I do; I HELP Snowflakes.
Generation Snowflake seems to be having a little trouble with the Middle East, being all confused about exactly who the aggressor is in Israel. David Brog of the Maccabee Task Force joins with Prager University to help explain why there is no Palestinian state.
Microaggressions plague Generation Snowflake like…well, the Plague. Dave Menzies of Rebel Media uses the Three Stooges to illustrate how to deal with those pesky microaggressions.
Well, I hope y’all feel educated now. Enjoy your Monday!
I’m preparing for tonight’s live show, so I’ll be occupied for a while. I didn’t want to leave y’all hanging until 6pm Central without anything to do, so I’ve put together a few items that y’all might find interesting.
This Sean Spicer video found at PJ Media is definitely worth watching…it’s a short video, but I promise it will leave you laughing.
Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch has been handling himself very well in the Senate hearings this week. Steven Crowder had a great take on the leftist response to Gorsuch in the hearings. It’s hilarious. Check out the embedded video.
Speaking of handling leftist crap with aplomb, Liz Wheeler is pretty good at it, too. In the video below, Liz, in under three minutes, shreds Feminazi hypocrisy. After watching the video, y’all might be interested in this PJ Media post, showing how an Australian Feminazi wants to take away a woman’s right to choose to be a stay-at-home Mom. Seriously.
Okay, y’all…it’s back to work for me, ironing my skirts and oiling the pull-starter for tonight’s live show. Be nice to each other in the meantime. See you at 6pm Central!
….is exactly why we made the switch to Linux as an operating system. Check out this article about Windows 10. From the PNO post:
Many Windows 10 users are unknowingly sending the contents of every keystroke they make to Microsoft due to an enabled-by-default keylogger. This function has been around since the beginning of Windows 10, and is a prime example of why you should never go through the default install process on any Operating System. Windows 10 privacy has been a hot button issue since its release years ago. The French government even issued a warning to Microsoft last year, telling them to: “stop collecting excessive data and tracking browsing by users without their consent”.
The above article tells you how to disable the keylogger. Be careful out there, y’all.
Pedestrians mowed down…..a knife attack at Parliament…see the embedded video below. I think it’s safe to say that you will see this material again, y’all.
Yesterday, James Comey, Director of the FBI, went before Congress to answer questions surrounding the Tweets of President Trump and the intelligence services’ investigation into Russian hacking and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. I thought that Comey’s answers were unsatisfactory. I also felt that the Republicans failed miserably to highlight the questions that are most pertinent to the American people. Trey Gowdy stood out as the only Republican who seemed prepared, in my opinion. If you missed the hearings yesterday, you didn’t miss much of interest. I’m embedding Gowdy’s video below, as Rep. Gowdy was the only Representative who got to the heart of the subject with Comey. Pay attention: You WILL see this material again.
Before getting into details on the progress that Honest Answer Radio is making, I need to express my most heartfelt thanks to our Creator, Savior, Redeemer, and King of Kings, God Almighty, for all the blessings that He has bestowed upon this enterprise that Marty, Tina, and I have undertaken. By the standards of today’s youth-centered culture, we are all old people, whose brains should not be nearly as flexible as they are. All of us are still learning new things at a rate that I believe is only attributable to Divine intervention; and you’ll see what I mean before the end of this post.
I’ve told you before in these pages that Honest Answer is expanding its reach on the internet. There are many components to the expansion; most are technological. Last week, for example, Marty tested and brought to the live show a new digital sound processor. Most of you probably didn’t notice much of a change, because the changes are subtle. High-quality sound, though, is going to be very important when we bring online the video features that are coming. Sometimes Spreaker, our broadcast platform, has bandwidth issues that we can’t control, but the new audio processing will be especially evident in our pre-recorded features, which are also coming soon.
The computer geeks in our audience will probably be interested to note that Honest Answer has moved away from Microsoft Windows as an operating system. Microsoft’s heavy-handed approach to pushing its customers into Windows 10 was the last straw, frankly. I’m posting this article today using Linux Mint, a much lighter, faster operating system than any Windows product. Y’all won’t notice any difference in what Linux accomplishes for Honest Answer, but trust me when I say that it’s a HUGE quality-of-life difference for us. We aren’t wealthy people, y’all. We simply cannot afford the expense of constantly being forced to upgrade all of our hardware to be Windows-compatible. Windows simply takes up too much space on our hard drives, doing all kinds of operations in the background that slow up our overworked processors. Linux cures a major headache for Honest Answer.
Once again, Marty, Tina, and I are climbing a steep learning-curve. Tina has moved to a new day-job. Marty is still learning (on the job!) to be Chief Operator and Engineer of a terrestrial radio station. I’m here at the house, learning a new computer operating system. All of us have had to jump into new technology in order to bring you honest, well-informed opinions on politics and culture. To give you a bit of frame-of-reference: I’m fifty years old. God has blessed me with a mind that is still capable of learning at nearly the same pace as at age eighteen. He has done the same with Marty and Tina. I honestly don’t believe that we would be able to do all the things we do without the help of our Lord.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to the work of Honest Answer Radio that the three of us continue to grow closer to God. Our relationship with our Creator is the single most important aspect of who we are and what we do. We are guided by the example of our Texas Spiritual Adviser, Pastor Rick Hope of Lillian First Baptist Church, and our local Pastor, Randy Huddleston, at Eulaton First Baptist Church. Both Randy and Rick deserve a lot of credit for the example they set of being grounded in the Living Word of God. Our stumbles are our own.
While I’m busy learning how to get the most out of Linux, and also how to use our audio editor, there may be a lapse in the number of posts to the blog. Don’t worry….it won’t be long before I’ll be back to my usual numbers.
Lauren Southern has separated from Rebel Media, and is a completely independent commentator now. Sometimes Lauren refers to herself as a journalist, but since I like her, I won’t refer to her in that way. When you watch the video below, you’ll understand why, if you don’t already. Miss Southern got White House Press creds, and reports on what she found in the Briefing Room. I know that a lot of you won’t be surprised, at all, at what Lauren found.
Update: Project Veritas spoke on the phone with the attorney in the video below. You have to watch the short video that I’m embedding below. It’s hilarious. Unless you are the attorney in question, of course.
We all know that Teacher’s unions are extremely powerful lobbying bodies, and we know that they cover a multitude of sins committed by lousy teachers; covering up sex crimes committed against minor children is something, though, that I think most of us see as beyond reprehensible. Watch the video below, and think on it.
I am indeed aware that there are other, perhaps sexier, news stories out there for a good Journalist to cover. Thank God I ain’t a Journalist, is all I have to say about that. Instead of writing here about those other news stories, I’d like to cover something a little different, but equally important.
Let’s talk about work. Let’s talk about blue-collar, get-your-hands-dirty work; the kind of work that leaves you physically tired at the end of the day. Let’s talk about the work that keeps the lights turned on, clean water in your home, and the numerous mechanical devices that make first-world life a life in the first world.
I’ve had a lot of different types of jobs. I’ve done blue-collar work (Zookeeper, Fire-Extinguisher Inspector, Horticulturist) and I’ve done white-collar work, too. Without doubt, the best jobs, the most uplifting and satisfying work that I’ve ever done, was in the blue-collar fields. Whether it was shoveling poop, trimming hedges, or making sure that a small business had enough working fire extinguishers, I went home with measurable proof that I had been at work, doing my job. I can’t say that about the white-collar work, honestly.
So why does society put so much emphasis on higher education? Is the world a better place when we graduate so many experts in Underwater Gender Studies From a Lesbian Perspective? Really? When I need to have a car repaired, I don’t want my mechanic to be a Liberal Arts major; I need him/her to fix my car.
I’ll let Mike Rowe do the talking at this point, from his interview with Tucker Carlson. Let’s figure out a way to make work cool again…
Last night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. I thought the interview was great on both sides. Carlson gave zero softballs to Jeff Sessions. On his part, Sessions gave direct answers to the very direct questions given to him.
In a just world, any questions of Sessions deliberately misleading the American people would be put to bed. There is nothing unusual about Senators meeting with Ambassadors from Russia. Even Nancy Pelosi, of the US House of Representatives, has done it.
