“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” –Adolf HitlerOver and over again, the American people are played by the dupes of ill designing men and they refuse to be ashamed of what they fail to address concerning those who are playing them (Jeremiah 8:5).Case in point, this last week I posted a meme on my live stream that showed the tyrant Adolf Hitler taking pictures with children to win the people over, as well as a picture of him as Time Magazine’s 1938 “Man of the Year.”A man responded, “I am tired of people equating Adolph Hitler with Donald Trump.” “I never said anything about Donald Trump! You did!” I replied. “Did you see something that I may have overlooked?” (2 Corinthians 11:14) We all have something to learn. I have been posting these memes for years and now that Donald Trump is president, I am equating him to Adolf Hitler? Look at what Louise Solmitz, a Hamburg school teacher in 1932, said of Adolf Hitler.“How many look up to him with touching faith as their helper, their savior, their deliverer from unbearable stress.” I went on and said that regardless of who serves “We the people” in this country, we are to, like the good advice given by Patrick Henry, “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.”So, I lay to the feet of present day America that you look to the past that you…
Ex-Patriot’s tight end, and convicted murder, Aaron Hernandez, was found post mortem to have had severe CTE. Athletes who sustain multiple concussions are at high risk of developing CTE, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. This progressive, degenerative disease of the brain is also found in veterans and those who sustained repeated head trauma. Symptoms include mood disorders, paranoia, impulse control issues, aggression, and memory loss to name a few. A lawsuit (reportedly $20 million) has been filed by the family against the NFL and New England Patriots. Hernandez was only 27 years old when he hung himself in his prison cell April 19th of this year. Researchers from Boston University concluded the 27 year-old football star had stage 3 of 4 CTE. This severity is rarely seen in someone this young. The lawsuit claims that by the time Hernandez joined the NFL, the league knew of the dangers of concussions and led players to believe they were safe. Attorney Jose Baez stated the Patriots and NFL were “fully aware of the damage that could be inflicted from repetitive impact injuries and failed to disclose, treat or protect him from the dangers of such damage.” Neuropathologists found loss of brain volume (atrophy), and tau protein deposits throughout his frontal lobes. The frontal lobe of the brain regulates impulse control, memory, judgement, social behavior and problem solving. What are the stages of CTE? The CTE Stages are as follows: Stage 1: Loss of concentration, attention, dizziness and headaches Stage 2: Additionally short term memory…
Karma rears its lovely head. Adrian Peterson wanted out of the Vikings franchise and he got his wish. His contract with the Vikings would have netted him several million dollars and, probably, a decent amount of playing time. But that wasn’t good enough for him. So he moved on. I was sad to see the face of the MN Vikings leave, but it really was time for him to move on. A few months ago I wrote about that very thing in an Open Letter to Bridgewater, Bradford and Peterson. Peterson thought he had a few more 1,500 yard seasons in him. At the age of 32 (which is like 55 in running back years). As a free agent, on the open market, Peterson thought he would command nine to twelve million dollars per year. And so he left the Vikings. He left the franchise that stood by him for nine season. He left the fans that adored him. He went elsewhere. Okay. Well, this is the NFL and players move on. It happens. So AP took a chance as a free Agent and the Vikings took a chance on second round draft pick Dalvin Cook. Peterson's journey went exactly how everyone, except for Adrian Peterson, expected -- no one wanted to hire a 32 year old running back. Especially one that has had two reconstructive knee surgeries and they most certainly did not want to pay him and pay him -- nine to twelve bloody million dollars! The few…
A study out of the University of Michigan finds 1 in 3 middle-aged Americans suffer poor dental health. The Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation at the University of Michigan, with support from AARP and Michigan Medicine, conducted the University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging poll and found the following: 33% of Americans aged 50-64 are embarrassed by the condition of their teeth Close to 40% suffer pain, difficulty eating and missing work due to their teeth 40% do not get regular cleanings or preventative care for their dental health 28% lack dental insurance 51% are concerned they won’t have dental coverage once they turn 65 Many of the study participants only went to the dentist once the dental issue was serious 13% are hoping that Medicare or Medicaid will provide their dental coverage, but traditional Medicare doesn’t cover routine dental care and Medicaid dental benefits are rare. The majority of the respondents understand the importance of routine preventative dental care and would seek evaluation earlier if they could. Study author Dr. Preeti Malani, stated, “Even those who were diligent about seeing the dentist and had dental insurance throughout adulthood may find it harder to afford dental care as they get older and coverage options may be more limited.” Other issues that affect one seeking dental care include fear of having a dental procedure and lack of local dental specialists in their city or town. Emphasis needs to be put on ensuring dental care is apart of Medicare…
Addressing the United Nations for the first time, Donald Trump’s mouth brought the nuclear threat level to its highest point since the Cold War. Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if it continues its pursuit of nuclear weaponry capable of attacking American soil and said he wouldn’t hesitate to act alone. He should hesitate, however. Dictators with Dicks: The Age-old Problem We’ve known this to be Trump’s stance since the featherweight, dick-measuring contest began between “Tiny Hands” Trump and North Korean dictator “Rocket Man” Kim Jong-un. Trump said Kim was on a suicide mission during his address to the UN, and he’s right. Kim’s life and the life of every North Korean depends on how comfortable Kim is in his own pants, which probably doesn’t leave many North Koreans comfortable. The whole situation is terrible for North Koreans and has been since their “liberation” from Imperial Japan by the Soviets as a result of World War II. The communist Soviet Union and capitalist U.S. failed to negotiate a future for a united Korea during the Cold War, so Korea remains divided with the two Koreas still technically at war. But there’s no satisfaction for Kim in attacking South Korea -- only a successful attack on American soil will satisfy him. Given the living conditions of North Koreans, consisting mostly of back-breaking work done despite so few calories consumed, we have a sense of how little Kim values the lives of his people. There is just one thing that concerns…
A recent study reports bald men are found to be more attractive, confident and dominant. For years I’ve been urging listeners and patients to embrace their receding their hairline and shave their heads rather than struggling to maintain their precious locks. So many men who’ve donned the clean-shaven look have overshadowed their hairy competitors. Just look at Bruce Willis (image above). Now a study out of the University of Pennsylvania confirms that people find bald men more attractive. Researchers asked male and female college students to rate attractiveness, confidence and dominance after viewing pictures of men with hair and then their hair digitally removed. Although shaving one’s head made the subject appear 4 years older, they were found to be at an advantage in all categories. Maybe it’s because we grew up seeing Mr. Clean with his bald head and ripping muscles make our mom’s giggle when she cleaned the house. Maybe its because of the myth that balding could signify high testosterone. What causes baldness? Hair is made in follicles within the skin and grows for about three years until it sheds and new hair grows. Hair loss (alopecia) occurs when hair follicles shrink and smaller, thinner hairs grow, lasting shorter and shorter times. Genetics play a huge factor, with the most influential genes coming from mother’s X chromosome, which came from her father. So maternal and paternal genes can both be responsible for baldness. Sex hormones, androgens, can cause male pattern baldness. Medications (such as anabolic steroids), illness…
Are We talking about The Same President that Today's Conservatives are Propping up, or Someone else? Things are Not Lining Up! “Prevention is better than cure!” You would think that the way today's conservatives (yesterday's liberals) are propping up Donald Trump and what he is really doing that they are talking of someone else. Yet, they are not! This is why it is so important to pay attention to what our representatives do rather than what they say (Matthew 7:16). The man and the office are the same. The political photo ops are taking place across the country with the new president helping with disaster relief, going into black communities and hugging and kissing folks, prayers at the administration’s table before session. All of these are available online. They’re everything good Americans want, and rightly so. However, is this diversion to keep your eyes off of the ball and putting Americans back to sleep? (Matthew 24:5; Ephesians 5:14) Of course, it is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdhRrb_xObQ The New American reported: The Trump administration is asking Congress to renew a law giving intelligence agencies the authority to collect the communications of millions of Americans without a warrant — despite the fact that such surveillance led to charges that President Donald Trump is in cahoots with Russia. The law in question is Title VII of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Section 702, which authorizes the National Security Agency (NSA) to intercept the communications of foreigners located outside the United States without obtaining a search…
GCN is happy to announce that HEIDI SELEXA will join our broadcast family beginning Monday, September 18th. Her new program -- The Heidi Selexa Show! -- will air from 3:00pm to 5:00pm CST, Monday through Friday. The Heidi Selexa Show is our long-awaited talk show about the world according to Heidi -- as only Heidi sees it! Heidi’s playful, upbeat take on current events, pop culture and relationships is authentic, refreshing and blended together with a lot of fun. Don’t let her giggle fool you, though, her show cuts deep and inspires you to think. Heidi’s personality is infectious -- imagine one part Gracie Allen, one part Stockard Channing, a dash of Lucille Ball, two splashes of Goldie Hawn, a zany red burst of Amy Poehler, and a little twist of Jessica Rabbit on Dexatrim (with a side glass of Merlot). That’s Heidi. That’s -- The Heidi Selexa Show! -- “There is nothing a little Dexatrim and Merlot can’t fix…. it’s The Heidi Selexa Show!”
With the Minnesota Twins collecting just their fourth walkoff win of the season at Target Field, Wednesday night, they are two games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels for the second Wild Card spot in the American League. They could now become the first team ever to make the playoffs having lost more than 100 games the previous year. The Twins have a 60 percent chance to make the playoffs given that seven of their last 17 games are against the hapless Detroit Tigers. I wrote about how these Twins could be the biggest underdog overachievers of all time, but now the team doesn’t look like overachievers. What once was a -68 run differential is now +8. Everything’s coming together like it did for the Twins in 1987 and 1991. The Twins traded their All-Star closer and got better! The Twins lost All-Star slugger and third baseman Miguel Sano to injury and got better! The Twins lost the designated hitter with the highest on-base percentage in baseball, Robbie Grossman, and got better! So not only does Paul Molitor deserve an extension with the Twins, he should probably win the AL Manager of the Year award. I was not a supporter of Paul Molitor’s when Ron Gardenhire was let go by the Minnesota Twins. In fact, I had Ozzie Guillen and Rusty Kuntz ahead of him on my dream list of managers. I didn’t like Molitor’s first lineup, and there are few I’ve agreed with since, because batting your best home…
JJ Abrams taking over writing and directing duties on Episode IX from ousted helmsman Colin Trevorrow is not exactly surprising. Citing, “creative differences” Lucasfilm sent Trevorrow packing, which makes him the fourth time Disney has hired a director -- had said director work on their Star Wars project (for years!) and then fired said director. That’s six feature films, four fired directors and two fired screenwriters. To be honest, the removal of a screenwriter is nothing new; however, the removal of a director is rare and the removal of a director after shooting some, if not most of the production -- is unheard of. Unless, apparently, you work at Disney Lucasfilm. Where it happens all the time. So what’s going on over at Disney Lucasfilm? The simple answer: They keep hiring indie directors who are used to having enormous creative control. Those directors don’t do well when under the microscope of a colossal tent pole franchise construction where everyone wants a piece of the pie. That being said -- four director replacements in six movies? Are we talking gross management incompetence or are all these changes justified? Or is it both? Let’s take a look at the hit list: Screenwriter -- Academy Award Winner Michael Arndt. Movie: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Screenwriter Michael Arndt, (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3), was brought on to Star Wars way back in 2012, and he toiled on the screenplay for almost a year and a half -- and never produced a single…
