So What Are My Options…

As I said on-air yesterday I am beginning to despise this election. I am growing to resent what it is doing/has done to our nation. And I am now all-out hating what it’s doing to friends and family in my life.

(An aside: If you’re one of my liberal friends who was always going to not vote for the GOP anyway then you’re exempt from this conversation.)

And here’s why I’m growing to despise it so much: I’m not that convinced that politics holds the real answers to life.

I believe they are important. I believe they are something we are required to deal with.

And I do hold this thought to be especially true: they do give us a measure of who and what we are as a nation.

Politics reveal our appetites, lusts, and cravings. And this year they have revealed some disturbing things.

This year we are more angry than able. We are more uninformed than unintelligent. We are more demanding than discerning. We are more exhausted than excited. And far lazier rather than laboring.

In short we’re spoiled children, who’ve eaten too much candy, sitting in the middle of our own stomach ache demanding it go away while refusing to eat our veggies.

The passion behind Bernie is driven by what America “owes” this selfish generation. The driving force behind Trump is driven by the idea that someone else “screwed us” and we won’t do the hard work of working for what we believe in but rather we want someone to wave a magic wand. In doing so we–the lazy electorate–expect him to make it better.

I see a LOT of heartache for us as a nation ahead. Because the front runners of the two parties are so much alike–no matter who we elect–disappointment is due to rain down.

Sadly I’m left with no great options. Only very flawed ones. Here they are.

1. Choose not to participate. In my past I have railed against this option, even condemning it from scripture. It is something I’ve never invoked. Even still, I believe the same things I have believed for the course of my life. To not be involved violates my obligations and responsibilities both as a man of faith and as a citizen of a nation where self determination is one of the sacred moral components of the blessings we enjoy. I have never advocated for anyone to “sit one out.” So to exercise this option would make me hypocritical. Integrity in all things is still a goal for me… Even though I muck it up pretty good from time to time.

2. Vote for Trump. As I typed the words I felt a bit sicker to my stomach. His estimation of people, his treatment of the disabled, his view of the people on his own side, his incapacity to admit wrong, his pride, his near deity like belief in himself, his complete and utter lack of understanding on policy, his willingness to destroy things grassroots non-establishment groups have fought for decades to reform, his inability to have empathy, his almost wholly incapacitated state of paralysis from the truth. To cast a vote for him is to be the hypocrite that I’ve been telling others you truly aren’t when invoking the “lesser of two evils” theory.

3. Vote for Hillary. This is anathema. It can not happen. It violates everything I believe on a set of core moral beliefs, but it further goes against every political principal I have and will ever advocate on-air. She will ruin our courts for 40 years. She will butcher more unborn children. She will advance the “crazy” when it comes to our hyper sexual society. She will abuse the powers she holds. She will brazenly work against the good of the American people. And she will leave our bravest behind, and blame it on others, or even worse a fictional video. She is an idiologue identical to Obama and in no way a more moderate democrat like her husband was forced into becoming. I literally would burn the polling place to the ground, cut off my own hand, or move to China before casting a vote for her.

4. Vote 3rd Party. There is talk like I’ve never seen about running a GOP alternative against the two front runners. The people now convinced that they can pull this off were the same ones telling us Trump would be stopped in the primary and wasted literally millions maybe tens of millions of dollars in a futile effort to do so. Many of these folks should have coalesced behind Cruz in New Hampshire and South Carolina. By not doing so because of some lame reasons like not liking Cruz’s commitment to his faith, or his drawl, or their belief that they were smarter… They created Trump, and once he realized their play he believed for the first time that he could now do it. These same geniuses in their vain attempts are now convinced that they can raise $250,000,000-$1,000,000,000 to best him. Good luck with that. The very best people you could put up are not interested and it is a suicide mission.

I have said repeatedly that Trump’s position with me has room to grow. Because while I don’t like how he’s run his race I’m willing to concede that he may just be ignorant on process. But every time I wonder if that’s the case he will do something even more offensive and unnecessarily stupid. His zeal for a statist, nationalist, vision for America rings both insincere (he ships jobs out of the states for his products, and hires foreign workers), and historically dangerous. His lack of any awareness of the constitution is profoundly disturbing. His level of cruelty to those beneath him is breathtaking. And his ability to turn on a dime and say, “Oh I didn’t mean any of that… This is what I think now…” is hauntingly scary.

So what is a true option for a person of conscience?

This is the question I have wrestled with since Trump won South Carolina and (as I predicted before Carolina) became the eventual winner.

I had hoped he might improve in his weaknesses and shore up on genuine strengths. Sad to say the first 100 days or so of this year appeared to be the opposite.

Sadly none of the four options I’ve listed above give me a moral outcome I can live with. None of them do.

It is just as evil to watch a reprobate statist progressive assume power and do nothing to stop it, as it is to discouragingly watch the party that traditionally stands in opposition to the progressive cause and wonder at the cuckholding about to be done. But voting third party will in essence have that same effect. And not voting will not only have that same effect but be in direct disobedience to my conscience as a man of faith.

In all likelihood I will never publicly reveal what my actual decision will be in the ballot box this year. Hopefully my children never ask me, and even at dinner parties I will very much avoid answering the matter.

But there are some things I can do. And these I commit whole heartedly to: 

1. Whoever does win can and should be held accountable by the Congress we send them. We will need strong Constiutionalists holding the executive branch responsible for their actions, investigating their wrong doing, and being a check and balance for the survival of the Republic. It appears that neither front runner of either party seems committed to this cause so if you have angst about the Presidential race, join the fight to put the best Congress in place that we can possibly get.

2. I can without hesitation point out the long litany of reasons voting for Hillary Clinton is perhaps the worst of the four options above. GOP friends will immediately say, “Perhaps? Kev did you see your own words about her?” I did. But the nature of Trump is such a question mark and so akin to her the question could be asked, “Could he be worse?” And I believe the depravity of man’s heart–especially when unchecked and unbothered with God–contains within itself the possibility of equal or worse evil. But that has not been revealed per sé so we stand at a cross roads. And while I am unsure of his direction, I can see where she’s been.

3. Lastly I can take significant comfort in knowing I fought the fight as well as it could have been fought. And this is my ultimate surrender, “Ok God… I told them the truth… I was faithful to YOUR calling on why I am here… And for that primary cycle I didn’t leave anything on the bench–every ounce of what I had got used in the field of battle.” There is a freedom there.

So to my Trump supporting friends, I can’t promise I won’t be tempted to make any more new memes but I will fight the temptation to make them often. To my #NeverTrump friends I respect your courage and I can never tell you what to do.

To my listeners and readers I will do my best to tell you the rock bottom truth and continue to attempt to obliterate confusion. And it’s my prayer that we can continue to provoke each other to think.

Lastly I commit that I will be on my knees in the early morning praying for our nation–regardless of the outcome. For unless we are His children these elections just turn into modern day “towers of Babel” thinking ourselves so wise that we can outdo God.

Here’s to our journey together!

“Even with the sound off…”

So pollster but more famously known for his focus groups Frank Luntz conducted one in Florida this past week on general election themes.

Everybody knows that Florida will not only be a bellweather state but also is repeatedly one of the most temperamentally purple states in Presidential cycles.

This focus group was unique in that it had voters who were opposed to both Clinton and Trump. Since both are front runners the question most intriguing to me about these voters is what must be done to win them.

Donald and Hillary are 1 & 2 respectively in highest negatives of all the candidates running. 

Trump astronomically bad negatives are one of the reasons he has yet to even come close to wrapping up the necessary delegates for the GOP nomination–currently registering barely half the delegates needed.

Hillary has the highest ranking of “untrustworthy” of any person to ever run for the presidency.

These voters in this focus group reveal the dilemmas for both candidates should they be handed their party’s respective nod’s.

The attendees of the group appeared to easily point out Hillary’s biggest obstacle (and maybe her least able to be fixed trait.)

She fibs

I could turn off the sound and still see on her face that she was lying,” a Republican woman said. “She was the worst liar I think I’ve ever seen in my life.”

“She lied about lying,” another woman said, as the group laughed.

Watch the clip above and see for yourself what the group is talking about.

A Special Place In Hell…

I never thought that Madeliene Albright was all-that-bright when she was Secretary of State. But to be candid she never spoke much. Nearly always a sour look on her face a woman who honestly I barely have a memory of ever speaking.

Some mystery is good. It allows you to think highly of people (or at least more so) until they disprove it.

This weekend in New Hampshire Ms. Albright easily erased any even neutral feelings I may have been willing to credit her past stoic ways for.

Stumping for another former Secretary of State, Albright decided to go all out in the arm twisting to sex-guilt the women vote in New Hampshire.

Telling the women at Hillary’s rally that there’s a “special place in hell for women who don’t help women” the implication was: vote for Hillary or you’re off the Island. (As if any nice normal person wants to be on an island with Hillary and Albright to begin with.)

And it’s especially ironic that it’s being said in support of Hillary’s campaign. For was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by while her husband continually cheated on her? Was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by while he raped women? Was it not Mrs. Clinton who stood by him as he physically assaulted them–biting and tearing their faces until he had finished his sexual acts against them?

Was it not Hillary who stood by and then executed payback against the very women her cheating, abusive, rapist husband did his actions against?

Did she help those women? Is there a special place in hell for her?

While I was pondering the offensive ploy Hillary/Albright were implementing this weekend I also found myself on a documentary shoot.

Over the course of three and half hours on Sunday I shot the stories of no less than five women.

These women had all found themselves experiencing crisis pregnancies in recent days. 

Their stories were all so similar. 

Unexpectedly pregnant. Scared. And visiting Planned Parenthood clinics they came away saying “the people in that place were awful in how they treated me.”

Then all of them had found their way–via different paths–to a Crisis Pregnancy Center. This place is headed by my friend Debbie (a woman) who heads a staff (of mostly women,) who make it a sincere calling of their lives to help the women come through their doors.

They do ultrasounds, they offer lots of counseling, support, and readiness–BEFORE the baby arrives. They then continue with supplies, support, life skills training, parenting classes, post pardem assistance,  spiritual support, encouragement and friendship for long after the birth of the child.

In Hillary and Albright’s minds the “women helping women” in this narrative would clearly be the awful monsters at Planned Parenthood.

Likewise they would argue that because my friend Debbie and her staff (many of whom volunteer their time) are as much pro-unborn-women as they are pro-angry-oxygenarian women that they have a “special place in hell” waiting for them.

Not surprisingly it appears that Secretary Albright is as bad a theologian as she is feminist, or world figure. From a Biblical perspective Jesus spoke about a “special place in hell” of sorts when it came to those who would willfully harm children.

He argued it would be better for such to have a 2000lb millstone chained to their neck and dropped into the ocean.

Sounds hellish to me…

The truth is Ms. Albright and Ms. Clinton only care about women who will advance their own agenda. And if you fall outside those parameters they wish you dead. 

Or in Hillary’s cases, raped, assaulted and facially disfigured…

BREAKING/VIDEO: E-Mails Too Damaging To Even Release

Turns out that on the day that another historic dump of Hillary’s past e-mails were to be released, that the side of the investigators have asked the judge in the case to protect some of the e-mails.


Because the information within them is so sensitive they are saying (even as the prosecuting forces in the investigation) their release poses too-big-a-threat to the welfare of America.

“The intelligence community has now deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.  

The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton’s personal server.

Fox News is told the emails include intelligence from “special access programs,” or SAP, which is considered beyond “Top Secret.” A Jan. 14 letter, first reported by Fox News, from intelligence community Inspector General Charles McCullough III notified senior intelligence and foreign relations committee leaders that “several dozen emails containing classified information” were determined to be “at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, AND TOP SECRET/SAP levels.”
