Politics and The First Christmas

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

chr 1It is difficult to escape the political undertow in today’s world. Politics is in play in everything we do, from our daily routines to events half way around the world. Our schools, our streets and roads…regulations imposed on everything from our businesses to the water we drink…wars, conflicts, diplomatic relations with nations both friend and foe…we can’t get up in the morning, proceed with our daily business or go to bed at night without political interference.

This time of the year, we do our best to ignore, to whatever extent possible, the world of politics in favor of time-honored traditions that revolve around Christmas or Chanukah, but we should not forget the role of politics IN Christmas…the first Christmas to be precise.

Just as the death of Jesus on the cross was politically motivated, so too was the story of his birth.

While the scriptures reveal that Joseph and Mary traveled to Bethlehem to pay their taxes, the truth goes politically deeper than that.

Col. Tom’s Great Day

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Unless you happen to live in the Great state of Nebraska, more specifically, in the western part of the state known as the 43rd Legislative District, you probably aren’t familiar with the name, Tom Brewer.

Considering the rich history of this state, only a single Member of the Legislature is a Native American.

Tom Brewer.

Only a single Member of the Nebraska Legislature wears a Purple Heart.

Tom Brewer.

Back in 2003, while serving our country in uniform, Tom Brewer was shot six times, broke 12 ribs, broke his sternum and was hit by shrapnel. He once told me that it was a good day, because he lived through it.

In 2011, in Afghanistan, an RPG tore him up again. It hit just feet from where he was, but that was a good day too.

After 6 tours, and the multitude of injuries he sustained, Tom Brewer wanted to go back. His doctors told him that enough was enough, and that it was time he called it a day.

A good day.

Since his retirement from the U.S. Army, Tom Brewer has found other ways to serve and one such way was creating a program for wounded Vets to learn new skills…coping skills…by taking them on horseback into the mountains of Montana and showing them that they were still relevant…and more importantly…still vital.

Today, Tom Brewer…Col. Tom Brewer…has become Nebraska State Senator Tom Brewer, representing the 43rd District…after campaigning, on the back of horses and mules across a 500 mile trek of his district with several of the men who served our nation with him.

Just a day or so ago, I reached out to Tom, as I had a few things I wanted to discuss regarding a bill he has currently in committee. I sent him a Facebook Message, asking him to give me a call, and knowing he’d get back to me as he always does.

He did…with a return message on Facebook. He told me to hold my thought on his bill, and we would discuss it in a few days. You see…Tom was a little busy…too busy to deal with a legislative bill…to busy, apparently, to handle his duties as a State Senator.

This was his message, and knowing the man as I do, I wasn’t one bit surprised.

“I am in Dallas Texas with the children of some of the men who died in my command (Gold Star families) part of a project called Operation Snowball Express. Probably one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do is to explain to a child why they lost their Parent. It makes what we do in the legislative chamber seem easy.”

Senator Tom Brewer had once again become…Col. Tom Brewer…and he was explaining to those children why a parent didn’t come home to them, what those parents meant to this country, to those who had served with them, and what those parents meant to him.

He said it was “probably one of the most difficult things” he’s ever had to do.

More difficult than being shot six times, breaking 12 ribs and his sternum, or having a rocket propelled grenade blow him up. More difficult too than the more than 30 surgeries he’s endured to repair all the damage done to his body while in the service of us all.

More difficult than serving our country for 36 years.

More difficult than surviving leukemia, which Tom Brewer has also done.

Read that message again…

“I am in Dallas Texas with the children of some of the men who died in my command (Gold Star families) part of a project called Operation Snowball Express. Probably one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do is to explain to a child why they lost their Parent. It makes what we do in the legislative chamber seem easy.”

I should tell you too, that he wrapped up that message with this…

“It has been a great day”

Liberals…The Gift That Keeps on Giving

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Tis the season when one’s thoughts turn toward family and friends, get-togethers, joy and good tidings and all the things that encompass Christmas, or Hanukkah…including the giving of gifts.

My thoughts, at this time of the year, always seem to turn toward…

Liberals…

The gift that keeps on giving.

Recently, it seems, liberals have made a transparently awkward attempt at becoming our nation’s political party of morality and the keeping of it, and I say…

The Dawn of a New Religion

Okay…so I’ve been giving this some quality thought.

If L. Ron Hubbard…a science fiction author can start up a religion that sticks pins in a Leah Remini doll, having at its core, several well-known and questionably talented members of the Hollywood asylum for the terminally nuts…and if some dude in prison serving time on assault charges, who helped to co-found a fascist organization…the Black Nationalist organization, could invent from thin air…Kwanza…and con folks into believing it was some authentic African holiday…

Why couldn’t I come up with a religion of my very own?

So…having put my full effort into it…I am now looking for converts to…

O Christmas Cups, O Christmas Cups…

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots

cup 1The whole world, it seems, is going to hell in a handbag.

Look around…Syria, Russia, Ukraine…Iran is getting nukes for the love of God. Iraq is a disaster, Afghanistan is too and nearly every Butt-Crackistan in the region is either fighting some absurd 7th century civil war or all their jihadis are invading Europe.

China is building islands…THEY’RE BUILDING ISLANDS…in the South China Sea and threatening us and Japan over them and that little sawed-off twerp over in North Diarrhea keeps promising to attack South Korea and US with HIS nukes.

The Palestinians, who are really Jordanians, are attacking Israelis because Israelis keep building homes…IN ISRAEL.

And now…Paris and Mali with ISIS making global threats…

Here at home…the economy still stinks…job participation is at an all-time low…welfare participation is at an all-time HIGH…Obamacare is predictably failing at warp speed, violent crime is UP…WAY UP in our most LIBERAL cities and taxes are going up higher than pants at a “Black Lives Matter” protest are getting lower.

If there’s really a correlation there…perhaps we should lower taxes to get those idiots on the street to pull up their damn pants and while I’m on that topic…note to all common street thugs…wearing the waste of your pants below your ass is not a fashion statement…it’s an I.Q statement that screams you’re so damn stupid you don’t know how to get dressed when you get out of bed at the crack of noon.

The whole world is going to hell and what did the Evangelical holier-than-thou Christians have their saintly skivvies all wadded up over last week?

Camouflage and Christmas Lights

Every year, it seems, somebody asks me what I want for Christmas.

Over the years, the list has changed.

As a boy, my list included toys, maybe a new bike or a sled and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

Such a list, I believe, is still the norm for kids today.

As I grew older, the list included more, substantial items.

A calculator, a new stereo, hiking boots and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

By the time I was in college, my Christmas list had evolved to include a new camera lens, something for my first car…a 1977 Chevy Chevette,  money for spring break and maybe, just maybe…

Friday Fume

My head is SPINNING from yet ANOTHER full week of LIBERAL NONSENSE!!!

You would think I’m making this stuff up but…NOOOOOOOO…

Let’s see…

Some woman in DC managed to get herself LOCKED IN THE BATHROOM at her workplace AFTER HOURS and it took her 2 hours to BREAK THROUGH THE WALL TO UNLOCK THE DOOR!!!

She says she was in TEARS and was SO TRAUMATIZED by it that SHE HAD TO TAKE 2 DAYS OFF!!!

Which raises the question…

WHAT IN THE NAME OF GLADE AIR FRESHENERS DID THAT WOMAN EAT BEFORE SHE WENT IN THERE????

On January 1st, some dispensaries in the SOCIALIST REPUBLIK of COLORADO will start selling RECREATIONAL POT but…They’re afraid that a GANJA SHORTAGE WILL KILL THEIR BUSINESS ABOUT A WEEK LATER!!!

That should come as a relief to all Colorado 7-11’s as they’ll need the down time to RESTOCK THE DORITOS AND LITTLE MINI DOUGHNUT RACKS!!!

And…

Joe Biden says he and Obama are NOT exchanging gifts this year.

Probably a good thing really…I mean…

Liberal’s War on Christmas – AGENDA EXPOSED!

Writes Jeffrey Folks, on page 51 of his 1985 book, The Rough Guide to Yugoslavia, “Religious faiths have experienced a waning of worship.”

Folks was describing the transformation of SOCIALIST Yugoslavia into COMMUNIST  Yugoslavia and, in the communist state…CHRISTMAS had been done away with as a publicly displayed holiday.

One wonders, and rightly so, just how far away WE are from THAT.

Perhaps, a better way of posing the question would be…

How CLOSE are we to it?

While even in a communist country back then, as Christianity or Judaism lived in the hearts and minds of those who practiced the faiths, any outward display of them was subject to neighborhood and government spies and no one wanted to suffer the consequences of being caught with a Christmas tree or a Menorah.

In this country, it’s hard to believe that such things would be possible but, let’s remember, it wasn’t THAT long ago that anyone would have thought someone could have been evicted from their home for flying an American flag.

Today’s home owners associations have been downright commie in their approach to veterans who have proudly displayed the stars and stripes over the last few years and, assorted atheist trolls from states hundreds or, thousands of miles from the scene of the Creche, have raised unholy HELL over THOSE public displays.

In today’s politically correct, agnostic, liberal, secular society, why WOULDN’T we expect to start hearing orders that Christmas lights and Christmas trees in windows will be banned?

The Liberal Party of ZERO Tolerance Policies

There is no doubt that liberals are in charge of public and college education in this country.

There is little doubt that liberalism is a mental disorder.

Therefore, if your children are enrolled in a public school…Guess what?

You have left your children in the hands of the mentally disturbed for the better part of the day…5 days a week.

I have come to the conclusion that I have ZERO tolerance for ZERO TOLERANCE POLICIES and, to put a fine point on it, I offer to you, THIS little gem of liberal insanity.

Hunter Yelton has been suspended from his school in Canon City Colorado.

Hunter, it seems, has violated one of the school’s ZERO TOLERANCE policies and, according to his school district’s representatives, they want this suspension to follow Hunter through the rest of his public school career so as to teach him a lesson.

Hunter Yelton’s crime?

Well…He…Ummmmm…Kissed his girlfriend.

Both Hunter Yelton and his girlfriend, whose name is not being revealed to the public for her protection, are…6 years old and, in the 1st grade.

Hunter has been labeled, a serial sexual harasser because, apparently, he has…Kissed her before.

Hunter Yelton, the fiend in question, has copped to the horrible act…

Weekend Edition: Twas the Night Before Obamacare

So…According to the Dictator…

“This holiday season, millions of Americans have a chance to get quality, affordable health insurance—many for the first time. If you have family members who are uninsured, you can play a big part in helping them find coverage that works for them. It might not always seem like it, but your family listens to you. So have the talk.”

Really?

Yes…Obama wanted you to talk to those gathered around your Thanksgiving table about…Obamacare.

He even suggested the things your holiday guests should bring to the feast.

No…Not cranberry sauce or that green bean casserole with the crunchy onion rings on top.

Here were his suggested side dishes for the main meal of Obamacare.

  1. Your Social Security Number
  2. Information about your employer and income— either a pay stub or a copy of your most recent W-2 tax form
  3. If you currently have health insurance, you’ll need your health insurance card or paperwork that includes a health policy number

Ummmmm…

Why not have your friends and family just bring a steaming HAGGIS???

But wait…There was more…
