Rush Limbaugh: On Loan From God

February 17, 2022

Written by Juliana Simone

The one year anniversary of the passing of radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh hit fans hard today. I’m sure it hit his wife Kathryn the hardest. That said, so many people loved Rush and were touched by his radio presence every day.  Although countless listeners never even met him, they felt a personal relationship with the man behind the golden EIB microphone he referred to almost daily. His listeners were instantly comforted when his radio show started, as Rush chortled over any negative news from the left, the swamp, or other global news, reciting the many facts that the mainstream media left out.

His positive attitude was so strong and genuine; it erased any concerns or fears for millions of followers as he performed his usual rustling of papers from which he read real news stories.  He added his well executed commentary to pertinent sound bites which targeted people who did not promote a free America, who were scandalized personally either from the political arena or as hypocrites, or who were enemies of the United States.

Rush’s brilliance he described as just to be fair, half his brain was tied behind his back. His patriotism was so devout he left behind a library of books for children that explained real history with true facts; facts that get erased from now typical lessons each year. His love of God and our Country shined in the three hours his program aired daily five days a week and throughout the year except for a rare vacation. His love of golf, the private jet he worked hard for, and the charitable work he rarely spoke about gave him some solace. Sadly, so did the cigars that must have contributed to his early death by lung cancer; hard to say as some smokers live much longer lives.

He candidly spoke about his terminal illness and shared how he made it through many months beyond what his Doctors thought he would. As Kathryn told his audience the day after he was called to a higher place, he did not know the day that would become his last broadcast was going to be his final show.

We all wish he did, in that perhaps he would have given us a special message or story or some small thing he hadn’t already told us…but perhaps God intended it this way, as he’d already provided us with such a wealth of information both personally and professionally. You are missed, Rush Limbaugh.

Many thanks to President Donald J. Trump who awarded him the Medal of Freedom as time was growing thin – a well-deserved honor.

One of the favorite things I heard a commentator say after Rush left this Earth was, “I like to think that he has his hearing back now and he’s really enjoying listening to the music he loved so much.” Beautiful thought – and probably true. The Rush we knew would most assuredly want to be back in his studio fighting the fight he fought so well for decades, setting the record straight, giving peace to his audience and loving every minute of it…but I’m sure where he is now, he is very happy, too.

Fox News Network: The Expedient Response with a Second Christmas Tree

It’s still worth posting tonight how impressive it was that the Fox News Network raised if not an exact replica of the original fifty foot artificial tree put up this Christmas season, a second one within around 24 hours. In the wake of some person with a criminal history, an arrest was made soon after the crime on seven counts including arson and criminal mischief.  The man said in his own words he’d thought all day about burning down the tree, but because it’s New York City that has liberal criminal law, his offense was reduced to three counts.

Fox News Media said in a statement, “We will not let this deliberate and brazen act of cowardice deter us. We are in the process of rebuilding and reinstalling a new tree as a message there can be peace, light and joy even during a moment like this.” Thanks were also given to the NYFD and NYPD for their prompt response and resourcefulness.

THE VERDICT: WHY NOT GUILTY FOR KYLE RITTENHOUSE WAS CORRECT

NOVEMBER 20, 2021 LEAVE A COMMENT EDIT

The decision made by all jurors today in Wisconsin in the Kyle Rittenhouse case was educated and sound, even with the many things not presented to them, or presented to them poorly by the District Attorney, Thomas Binger. Binger, for many reasons that can be listed here but are easily found, should resign or retire immediately.

The mainstream media who works for the Democrat, now left or Communist Party here in the U.S., worked overtime to present a false narrative to those viewers who either willingly watch their programming or have to, due to fed program choices in airports, hotel lobby’s, college campus main rooms, waiting rooms, etc.

{More tomorrow.}

I don’t have much to add that people reading this blog post have not heard already, in that I have followed this story from the beginning and formed similar conclusions well before the jury did the same. What I agree with among the learned commentators and constitutional lawyers, is that the case against Kyle Rittenhouse should never have been brought to trial in the first place, and that it is clear his actions were conducted in sheer self defense.

Sadly, what is considered the mainstream media, in terms of reference not viewership by fellow press associates, continues to put out false information on a regular basis. Their coverage of the Rittenhouse trial broadcasts a myriad of untruths. This list should be easily found online but may be scrubbed at any time.

What should be clear to everyone, is that this young man who intelligently chose to choose his life over the people coming to severely injure or kill him, used his Second Amendment rights that are written in the United States Constitution. The democrat party of today, which only has majority after being installed, focused on this trial only because they don’t want any individual thinking they can use those rights to protect themselves against their unruly illegal mobs when they take the streets.

CA Recalls: Why Davis and Not Newsom

September 22, 2021

Written by Juliana Simone

The reason why Gray Davis lost his seat as Governor in 2003 when voters said yes to his recall, and why Gavin Newsom kept his seat as Governor in 2021 comes down to three things. They’re really quite basic.

First and foremost is the mere factor of time. Almost two decades have passed and in CA, where the liberal legislative majority rules the once Golden State, spoon fed voters young and old have by majority bought into their rhetoric in terms of what is good and what is bad for our country and California. Little to none is true, but nevertheless, the daily messaging has taken hold. The people who live there are ripe for this pablum, having lived there myself for over a decade, and their majority vote should not be surprising to Americans. Unlike many commentators’ thoughts I read after the results, as much as I understood their negative remarks against Californians, such as, “you’ll get what you ask for,” I don’t agree as I feel for the many people there who don’t want these people in office and want to see their state turn around for the better. Geographical red/blue maps post elections show much of CA is conservative or Republican but they can’t win over the massive numbers of the liberal southern and northern hubs.

Secondly, syndicated conservative radio host, Larry Elder, the favorable opponent to Newsom in the September 14th recall vote, is an admirable and accomplished Black man, but not in the right Party as a Republican. Ask the brilliant Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or his predecessor Thurgood Marshall; Accomplished former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; Gifted Neurosurgeon Ben Carson; U.S Senator Tim Scott (R-SC). The list is long, actually. All of these amazing people would be lauded 24/7 by the mainstream media and the left, if they only had a D by their name and ran as democrats.

Third and last, Newsom is part of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s cartel, and she made clear in a public appearance that she supported her nephew-through-marriage the evening before the recall vote. This is no small thing in California as politics go. With no lauds available for Newsom on September 13th, the last day for pro get out the vote speeches for the unpopular Governor, as he has created such a large exodus from the state they lost a Congressional seat in re a reduction of population, all the liberals from President Biden to Vice President Harris who flew out there to save him could say about why the people of California should vote for him, was…wait for it…he’s not Trump! Ah, the go-to mantra for the left when another unimpressive failing candidate who has no merits or record to stand on needs something – anything – for why they should be elected. In California, the anti-Trump rhetoric works well enough to get even the most shameful people into office. Fortunately for the rest of America, that’s not the case almost anywhere else, as we all know.

What I admire about Larry Elder, aside from his coming out of South Central Los Angeles to graduate from Brown University and the University of Michigan to then practice law for ten years before his becoming a radio talk show host, is his concession speech. He closed saying , “We may have lost the battle, but we sure as hell are going to win the war.” That is the spirit, gumption and tenacity needed.

Californians: Vote For Larry Elder For Governor

Elect Larry Elder for Governor of California Campaign Sign

September 13, 2021

Written by Juliana Simone

Like many Americans are thinking tonight, the hope is that Californians recognize what a dire state they are living in under sitting democrat Gavin Newsom and will vote for Larry Elder tomorrow on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. The vote should be unanimously in favor of Elder who would have a strong chance of finally turning the largest state in America in a positive direction and bringing it back to its once golden status. California was a state people dreamed of going to and traveled far to get there to put down stakes and make a successful life for themselves and their future generations.

Under democrat leadership, it’s whittled away to near ruin and drove away many of those born and raised residents to new homes in other states. California is the only place with such a high declining population as people flee from the many and exorbitant taxes, weak illegal immigration policies, skyrocketing crime and homeless rates and an overbearing big government for greener pastures anywhere else regardless of direction. So much so they lost a congressional seat this year.

Newsom personifies all that is negative about California with his reckless spending, liberal legislation, and clueless personal mindset that makes him blind to how the people he represents as Governor live under his rule while he lives above it all flitting from one fun event to another in privileged seclusion from the sad reality all around him. Like most left leaning politicians, his private security detail keeps him away from the violence others have to deal with every day in California, so reducing the police forces that keep his people safe and restricting gun ownership for citizens self-protection seem like fine ideas. His list of failures as the head of this once fine state is long, and it’s why over two million people signed the petition to recall him from office.

The vote is tomorrow for those who still vote the real way, in person. Let’s hope there are a lot of voters who still plan on filling out their ballots in their local polling places, since mail in ballots clearly lose their way or end up counted or uncounted in mysterious ways. There is a news story that’s been out for a few weeks that the vote by mail ballots have been printed in such a way that there is a keyhole type punch on the back of the envelopes that will show if the voter voted for Newsom or not. Unbelievable but if this is still the fact, why was it allowed? Republicans are also reporting they’ve been told that they’ve already voted, when they in fact have not, so the fix is already in as far as democrats and Newsom are concerned.

What they perhaps don’t understand is how many people don’t want Newsom as their Governor anymore and don’t like the liberal policies being shoved down their throats statewide and federally. Perhaps there will be enough fed up Californians regardless of party affiliation or background, to overcome any potential fraud and send the man ruining their state packing. Gavin will be fine. More time to dine at The French Laundry and no one will care he’s not wearing a mask despite his mandate.

Perhaps they’ll elect Larry Elder who, as the mainstream media keeps failing to mention as he’s in the wrong party as a Republican, would be the first Black American to be the Governor of California. A long serving career conservative talk radio host, his fiscal policies would right the state economically. His values would reduce the growing crime wave and make streets and homes safe again. His life travels from growing up in a tough neighborhood in southern Los Angeles to become a successful businessman would focus on education opportunities for those who now find learning impossible. His turning the state around in a positive direction might even bring back some of the native Californians who felt they had no choice but to leave taking their families, businesses and needed taxes with them.

Larry Elder, who’s had to deal with physical threats and harassment while campaigning without a peep of outrage from the typically vocal media, has shown his strengths throughout this unfair negative barrage. How he’s dealt with all of this, except for the conservative outlets that exist for the millions of people who fight for patriotism and love of Country, shows the volume of personal convictions and inner self guidance he possesses. These qualities are what make someone a great leader. 

Living there twelve and a half years over three decades, many people I knew signed the petition for Gray Davis to be recalled at the time including myself. California is special in that it even gives voters this option. Not all states do. Twenty do altogether with different provisions. I wish I could cast my vote for Larry Elder tomorrow. Even though I haven’t lived there in well over a decade, perhaps I already did unbeknownst to me.

NEXT POST: WHY WE LOVE CLINT

Actor and Director Clint Eastwood has one of the longest careers in Hollywood for a multitude of reasons. All of them because he exudes talent. I’ve had this outline in my draft folder for too many years. It’s hard to comment on someone so great, but fellow writers who respect my work have encouraged me for some time to put this up. With sincere homage, read “Why We Love Clint.” This will be a detailed piece, and will include why my three favorite Eastwood films are: “American Sniper,” “Bird,” and “The Bridges of Madison County.”

The BEST ST. PAtRICK’s Day FiLM – “The QUIET MAN”

(1952) Amazing film that combines traditional Irish marital courting with the chemistry that makes a lifetime bond work. Another stellar movie to thank director John Ford for who is best known for his westerns, but filmed so much more, from classic interpretations of novels like “The Grapes of Wrath” to the military themed “Sergeant York”. (Ford himself was a naval officer.) The winner of five academy awards, four for best director, he gifts us with this tonight and always. Starring: John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Barry Fitzgerald, Ward Bond and Victor McLaglen.

Upcoming FilM POSts

Written by Juliana Simone

I have a draft folder with so many nearly-finished articles about film, I’ve told a published writer friend of mine I was leaving it to him if I died first. Like many, I’ve watched movies intently and have much to say about these productions. At this time, I’m going to catch up on my views about classics, genres, actor/actresses, writers, directors, cinematography and the audience that perceives this artistry whether as a film enthusiast, expert or standard viewer.

The Fix Is In: The Swamp Keeps Winning

From Election Eve to the Supreme Court Decision Today

December 11, 2020

I’ve refrained from writing a new post since Election Day with the incomprehensible morning results which surprised millions that suddenly somehow Joe Biden won in the wee hours of the “still counting” counties.

As President Donald J. Trump showed in his forty-five minute speech on December 2nd, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXmVUY7sP9w&t=2229s which gave detailed information of how his reelection was stolen by many corrupt machinations, the steal of his reelection continues. Even late today, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case brought by the Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, which was joined by 18 other states after filing. https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/sites/default/files/images/admin/2020/Press/SCOTUSFiling.pdf

One hundred and twenty six federal House members also signed on to this suit, via an amicus brief led by Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) that included Republican House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy.

Interestingly, McCarthy’s name among 19 others was somehow omitted after a “clerical error” was discovered. With this correction, 126 Republican House Members were totaled.

“This brief presents [our] concern as Members of Congress, shared by untold millions of their constituents, that the unconstitutional irregularities involved in the 2020 presidential election cast doubt upon its outcome and the integrity of the American system of elections,” the brief read.

Lower state supreme courts in compromised swing states where voter irregularities occurred in numerous ways, were expected to rule against any of President Trump’s legal team’s lawsuits, as this is the pattern with liberal judges today. The same situation occurred in 2000 with Bush vs. Gore, when Democrat candidate former Vice President Al Gore tried to hand pick counties in the state of Florida to find ballots in his favor to pad the voter outcome using new terms such as “dimpled and hanging chads” which under magnifying glasses perhaps showed the “real intention” of a voter whose ballot was kicked out for lack of clarification.

Losing this challenge, the Democrat Party realized they needed to change how paper ballots were processed and brought in new electronic machines that would tabulate how a voters ballot was counted, by detecting filled in circles with designated pens.

Part of the pro-election law lawsuits via President Trump and others, refer to the voting machines used in swing states, made by Dominion. The controversial company has many liberal and well-known investors and was founded by some of the biggest procommunist individuals. Trying to look this up online now, it’s amusing to see how scrubbed the information on this company is after five search pages. Texas is one state on record that said they turned down Dominion when choosing ballot machines, because of the clear evidence they could easily be tampered with in terms of results.

Writing this piece could take hours and much of this can be found online outside of mainstream media sites. My point as a multi-termed Republican Town Committee Chairwoman, cable public access host for 15 years, campaign worker federal and state, blogger and reporter, is that I have zero respect for both the liberal legislators and their minions, including their media lapdogs, and the Never Trumpers. I’m not sure which is more disgusting to me. The liberals at least are tribal, however anti-American and blasphemous their agenda is which seeks to destroy life from babies to seniors to nuclear families. The Never Trumpers are not tribal, and are the enemy within whether it’s out of spite, bitterness or control. Millions of us dislike both groups intensely.

As for the Supreme Court who fails in their duties by not hearing the State of Texas case, none of these appointed judges who voted against hearing this today, should be sitting there. Either you don’t get what your job entails or you are afraid of the outcome of your decision. If it’s the latter, you’re a disgrace to our Founding Fathers and The Constitution of the United States. How many of these great men signed their names only to be brought to ruin in the end? This is who you now represent? The swamp gives you your orders and you obey? Back down? Recoil? Save yourself?

In fact, any and all people who are involved in this big “gotcha” moment against President Trump (45), since you won’t recognize the shame you should feel – to the Never Trumpers – hey, President Ronald Reagan advocates, why aren’t you following his 11th commandment? – {Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican} – and to the extreme leftists in the elected Democrat Party and their talking head tools littering our televisions and print publications, it will be interesting to see how you feel in four years after a horrendous upheaval of all things American. Understand this won’t happen again if you pull it off this time.

President Trump, who clearly won in a landslide, had to be taken down by the swamp. He ran in 2016 on draining the swamp, which millions and millions of people from all sides embraced to elect a President who cared about America and its people. But the swamp sat back after four years of coming up with every trick in the book, which failed to take back this exceptional man who had more accomplishments some say than any other president in one term, for this one bogus moment. Enjoy this fake triumph, fake win, fake news, fake “president elect.”  

Remember this: Never before has any sitting president had tens of thousands of people, in states across America during one day in multiple venues for weeks, heard the chant, “We Love You!” This honor belongs only to President Donald J. Trump. We’re all still here.
