Happy Father’s Day 2014

dad_daughter_fishing - CopyToday is Father’s Day, a day during which we pamper our dads or remember our dads, if they’re no longer with us. Too many children today grow up without fathers in the home. How blessed many of us were to have a father in our lives!

We’re supposed to believe that it’s just as well to have no dad and just a mom, or two dads and no mom, or two moms and no dad. Now the “abnormal” home is the one with a traditional heterosexual married couple as parents. We’re supposed to “celebrate” the “diversity” of various types of families. I’m not buying it; are you?

No one will ever convince me that I would have been just as well off if I hadn’t had my dear old dad to love me, guide me, teach me, cherish me. Girls need dads and boys need dads. Science tells us so, just so long as it’s truly objective science. But that’s a thing of the past, too–objective science. Uncorrupted-by-political-correctness science.

Sometimes, we have to go overseas to find some truth:

Growing up without a father could permanently alter the structure of the brain and produce children who are more aggressive and angry, scientists have warned.

Children brought up only by a single mother have a higher risk of developing ‘deviant behaviour’, including drug abuse, new research suggests.

It is also feared that growing up in a fatherless household could have a greater impact on daughters than on sons. …

Dr Gabriella Gobbi, who carried out the research with colleagues at the medical faculty at McGill University in Canada, said:

‘This is the first time research findings have shown that paternal deprivation during development affects the neurobiology of the offspring.’…

Numerous studies, which too many like to pretend don’t exist, demonstrate a host of the negative effects of growing up without a father (e.g., promiscuity, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, poor academic achievement, increased criminality, inter-generational child and sexual abuse, confused gender roles, lower IQ, etc.).

All this is common sense, except that sense doesn’t seem to be common anymore.

So if you’re blessed to have a father in your life, then tell him so. Thank him for being there for you. Trust me: He’ll be so very happy to hear it out loud and from your lips.

Condolences to all who have lost their fathers. There’s a hole in my heart that can never be healed.

Dad, wherever you are, I love you and miss you. I thank God every day of my life that you were my father.

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers (and greats to whatever degree), stepfathers, fathers-in-law, and godfathers, as well as to any man who plays a father’s role in any child’s life.

God bless you, every one.

  1. Happy Father’s Day, everyone. I hope you’re all out there enjoying wonderful cool weather. The heat will be on for some of us soon enough. Have a great day and THANK YOU to all the wonderful, involved, loving fathers in this great country.

    While Barry enjoys his ‘mini-vacation’ in the home of the CA gay couple, hundreds slaughtered in Iraq in what can only be called religious genocide. Eeees not my problem, he says. You know why? Guess whose side he’s on.

    • Great story! I read at Drudge that Malia happened to join Mooch and Barry yesterday after “working” on the set of Halle Berry’s new TV series. Don’t know where Sasha was.

      • You know, the perfect parents who don’t let their children watch tv on school nights and teach them to eat right and also hang with all the bestie Hollywood people and most outrageous music icons? Well, as such they know better than anyone the sickness and debauchery that pervades these people. Yet, they arrange for their protected-as-part-of-responsible-parenting daughter to get involved with this industry and be alone with these adults. Yeppers. Great parents and such good role models for us peons.

      • Wow. The comments are revealing. Lots of statistics. people know.

        the link under “series” ^^

        • I know, it seems like the even the paid trolls seem to just be doing their job and not really emotionally invested in their comments! Many references to Mn’s Clb, and all things brth r rprt. I checked some of the names and they are not the same as comment over at brtrrprt.

  3. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/06/confirmed-las-vegas-cop-killers-were-members-of-far-left-occupy-movement/

    I had a feeling. The media still are calling these cop-killers in Vegas “white supremacist” members of the Tea Party:

    “… it will come as no surprise to our readers that the Millers were involved in the “Occupy Movement.” [photos at the link] Again, the liberty movement is massive but the Occupy Protests tend to be attributed to the left. Bundy Ranch tends to be associated with the right. They are both cases of civil disobedience but obviously the media wants to paint a picture of the Millers as being people who voted for Romney rather than Obama. This is how the media constantly pushes the agenda of the left. Nearly every news publication in America printed something about the associations of the Millers, but very few printed this:

    According to CBS Chicago:

    While living in Lafayette, Jerad and his wife Amanda took part in last November’s “Million Mask March” – a gathering of protesters from the Occupy movement, anarchists, and hacktivists.

    Nick Wertz, one of the organizers of the Lafayette march, said it attracted many people upset over a lot of issues.
    “Everyone there just seem kind of like normal people. At least they were going to stick up with what they thought was right,” he said.

    Wertz said he didn’t really know the Millers, but weeks after the march, Amanda Miller contacted him. “She was moving to Vegas for whatever reason and they had a dog they couldn’t take with – and I was like, ‘If I can help,’” Wertz said.

    But that was the end of it, he said….”

  4. Sharyl to the rescue, for “low information” Congress members: http://sharylattkisson.com/lois-lerners-lost-emails-questions-for-the-irs/

    A roadmap for them. The questions to ask next. Although, the clock is running and Barry’s in his sprint for the finish line, so what can possibly come of this? They need to take action NOW. They can start with defunding ANYTHING they can, up to and including the IRS. They can have Lerner arrested and held in contempt until she sings like a canary. They can subpoena everybody associated with this so-called computer crash and put them under oath NOW and force them to talk or join Lerner in her cell.

  5. And he said this: ” “Barack Obama has brought us Jimmy Carter’s economy and Richard Nixon’s excuses.” Brilliant, Congressman Stockman!

    • Oh, yeah. That’s hilarious, isn’t it? I found that a while ago. It “reads” rather RACIST, does it not? Assumes that “whites” all just naturally have “inhibitions about body movements” and have a different definition of “gracefulness” than blacks and also that “whites” don’t know how to move “naturally and spontaneously.” Suppose the converse is also supposed to be true–that all blacks just naturally have rhythm and move spontaneously and by their definition of gracefully. I swear, this is where it all began. Toutonghi himself is rather WHITE. What church, I wonder, is the connection here? He’s the physics professor who is the brother-in-law of the babysitter. He lived in CA and worked in CA, as I recall, around the same time that Mark (you remember Mark) also was studying physics in CA, although allegedly at another college. Odd, too, that “soul” is supposedly “Afro-American culture” AS IF all the white soul songsters and blues singers just never existed. What’s interesting is that WITHIN the world of music, people NEVER made racial distinctions.

    • what a great read! It turns out to be a testament to the success of our unification and the success of Black Americans on every front. Funny, stuff, too. An Historic Library of sorts.

      oh yeah and the Dance Guru. the photos are hilarious. i remember when.
      LOL

  7. So a progressive group invents a map “proving” a LIE that says there’s been 1.2 school shootings per week since Sandy Hook. Charles Johnson PROVES THE LIES in amazing work: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/06/10/wow-journalist-attempts-to-debunk-anti-gun-groups-list-of-school-shootings-in-america-since-sandy-hook-heres-what-he-found/

    First there were Knockout “Game” attacks. Now it’s a kinder, gentler racist assault: Cracka Smacks, where “all” they do is smack you upside the head for being white (or at least not black). Even 10-year-olds can be victims.

    • At this point? None. 🙂 Couldn’t happen to a better person. Who wants to read more lies and more lies and more lies? She’s OLD NEWS.

  11. http://sharylattkisson.com/irs-commissioner-subpoenaed-to-testify-about-lost-lois-lerner-emails/

    “… House Oversight Committee subpoenaed IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to testify at a hearing Monday about Lois Lerner’s “lost” emails.

    On Friday, the IRS disclosed to Congress that it had lost many Lois Lerner emails dated from January 2009 to April 2011 due to a previously undisclosed computer crash in 2011.

    In a letter to Koskinen today, Chairman of the Oversight Committee Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said that the Federal Records Act (FRA) was passed by Congress to avoid this very scenario.

    “The FRA requires agencies to make and preserve records of agency decisions, policies, and essential transactions, and to take steps to safeguard against the loss of agency records,” wrote Issa.

    The hearing will take place next Monday at 7pm. …”

    PRIME TIME. BUTT, what difference, at this point, does it make? What’s a little LAW to this lawless administration?

    • What I find disturbing is that throughout his letter, Issa ASSUMES and WRITES as if what the IRS says about the emails is true. http://www.scribd.com/doc/229993855/Daryl-Issa-Subponea-to-Koskinen-IRS-Lerner-Emails-and-Hearing-Invite

      Additionally disturbing is that his letter does NOT reiterate the subpoena for the emails and doesn’t include ANY of Sharyl’s most intelligent suggestions. Is this just more dog and pony show? ISSA, are you with us or agin us?

      • I would like the IRS to provide workshops on this for those of us who would LOVE to know how to permanently lose emails.

        • http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/380576/irs-has-lost-more-e-mails-eliana-johnson

          “It’s not just Lois Lerner’s e-mails. The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

          The IRS recently informed Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal.

          The revelation about Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the targeting scandal and today’s news has further inflamed Republicans. Camp and Boustany are now demanding a special prosecutor to investigate “every angle” of the events that led to Lois Lerner’s revelation in May 2013 that the agency had used inappropriate criteria to review the applications for tax exemption. …”

          SIX MORE people who are persons of interest in this scandal and THEIR email is missing, too. This makes NO SENSE because supposedly Lerner’s was solely on her personal computer, which crashed. So these others should still have their emails, including those sent to them from Lerner.

          They seriously need to be defunded. They count on we, the serfs to remain compliant sheep. We fund every vile action they take. We are sinners. We are guilty.

            I don’t know why comments are stacking irregularly (wordpress…shrug) but this particular comment is in reply to SEO.

            • WordPress was acting very strange this afternoon. It wouldn’t post my comment. Then, I’d hit refresh, and my comment would be there!

    So, 18 1/2 minutes of missing dictabelt was enough to Impeach Nixon,
    but 2 1/2 YEARS of missing emails, from an agency whose number one raison d’etre is record-keeping (which they seem to do very well, at least when it comes to you and me) is not? Geez, I think I may be suffering from cognitive dissonance.

  13. I’ve been waiting for this. GWB is being the gentleman. Cheney takes the gloves off, though.

    http://online.wsj.com/articles/dick-cheney-and-liz-cheney-the-collapsing-obama-doctrine-1403046522
    “As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama’s past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. “If a J.V. team puts on Lakers’ uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant” (January 2014). “[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated” (August 2013). “So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding” (September 2011).

    Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march. …”

    • This is typical Obama-think: If I, an Ivy-league-educated person, don’t know something, then OF COURSE you lesser folks don’t know it and so now I, your superior, must take upon myself a crusade to EDUCATE you morons. She generalizes her own lack of knowledge, despite her uppity education, to the rest of U.S. society. Excuse me, MS. OBAMA. My mother was a high-school graduate and SHE knew very well how to feed her many children (3 times as many as Mooch has) NUTRITIOUSLY as well as ECONOMICALLY. Just because you are dense, DESPITE having gone to highfaluting schools, does not mean that the rest of us, even those lacking a lot of formal education, are as stupid or ignorant (take your pick) as you are.

    “The American public overwhelmingly regrets ObamaCare, our veterans are dying waiting to see doctors, the IRS intimidates conservative groups, the southern border is compared to a sieve and the president assures us not to worry – smiling, golfing and at this very moment partying… Because the fundraising never stops – not when four Americans die in Benghazi, and not when Baghdad is at the brink.” —Megyn Kelly

  16. and this one. 🙂

    • It’s interesting to see some of these media types getting outraged, as we have been since 2007 and they have should been, also. It’s NOTHING NEW. Obama has been disappearing documents and records, and having GOVERNMENT entities do it for him, too, since he took office (and before). Where have they been and why would they think he would act differently with government records? This is a RICO CONSPIRACY because if this has been disappeared from every hard disk, every server, every backup (disk/tape/printout) then IF they’re really gone, it MUST be a conspiracy. IF they used third party servers and it’s missing from THEM, too, then the conspiracy widens. Of course, now we know why it took them a year to respond–and the Congress gave them a year to disappear the records (if they’re gone). Did we hear this one yet?

      • All I can figure is that whatever their trump card is, they know they can play it and it will work and so, whatever they do, they WILL get off FREE. That’s why they’re so in-your-face about this. They KNOW they’ll get away with it. Just as Barry was so confident, smirking, laughing before he was “selected”. Because he KNEW he would be.

        • He’s got the dirt on every one. Its his m.o. ~ How he wins elections and executes over-powers, constantly…he’s the ‘goods’.

          Probably lots of people could go to jail. Like the Clintons,’ e.g.

          And, probably has knowledge and proof the biggest crime ever committed by the US Feds~until he came along and did us in, i.e. Whatever he knows and uses it as his Trump card is probably earth-shattering. And that’s probably why the CCP says what they have is “universe”-shattering.

          He’s knows something. Chicago knows something, truth be known.
          It would wreak havoc. He’s got the ‘goods’. jackboot.

          • I’m afraid so.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Then OUT with it! Let havoc be wreaked. THE TRUTH SHALL SET US FREE!

            Beside which, If left to him we’ll be… um….nyuk…nyuk…nyked anyway! It doesn’t take a nuclear physicist to see the writing on the wall, for God’s sake! It’s only a matter of time. OUT WITH IT. Better to deal with our problems/secrets within than to have the hoards at the door…..and they are streaming in….sanctioned….on a daily basis!

    • http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/06/cleta-mitchell-to-the-irs-answer-this.php

      A great letter there from Cleta Mitchell to the DOJ. I haven’t digested the entire thing yet, but seems she must be arguing that once a lawsuit (or a subpoena) is filed, then the defendant or person/entity subpoenaed is responsible to PRESERVE EVIDENCE. That would mean that any lawyers that did not do so must be at risk of losing their licenses and livelihoods. At least, that’s what I would say if I were Cleta. She talks about obstruction of Congress. Well, that’s a federal crime, isn’t it? Go get ’em, Cleta. What’s concerning to me is that suddenly Issa is subpoenaing the computers, drives, backup disks, too. Is this to keep them FROM Cleta? Who has precedence?

  17. Hey. We haven’t even talked about the big score Barry had yesterday when he single-handedly caught the guy who caused the attack in Benghazi and the deaths of four of our citizens. Nope, I don’t mean the video producer who worked for Barry’s gummint; I mean the terrorist mastermind (who didn’t exist, according to Rice, Hillary, and Barry) whom CNN and journalists were able to find within days but it took Barry several years to find. He’s now on his way to the USA for trial. Not to worry, jihadist scum. Barry will simply pardon you before he leaves office.

  18. I look at this and think “Stockholm Syndrome”. No wonder he cries:
