Speaking to avid supporters who form a foundational pillar of the core values of the Democratic Party, past presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton sermonized, during the election cycle, with a straight face, that half of Donald Trump supporters were a “basket of deplorables.” Her particularly devoted “non-deplorable” audience consisted of “in your face” Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders. Hillary, excitedly, also sermonized that Trump “deplorables”, were also: “…racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic…” Her audience rapturously agreed, and the liberal news media enthusiastically disseminated Hillary’s wisdom and vision to all!

It has been fifty years since the tumultuous “Summer of ’68” and the now immortal chant by protesters at the Democratic National Convention of, “The whole world is watching!”

Fifty years; a half century.  The wave of protests against the Vietnam War had come to a great crescendo.  Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were cut down by assassins’ bullets.  American society was in turmoil both on the streets and the college campuses—and Woodstock was still a year away!

As the holidays are upon us, let us be mindful that these next few weeks are beautiful opportunities to express love, grace, encouragement and peace towards others. There are some people, and in some cases someone we know, or even we ourselves are in dire need of a prayer or two this holiday season. Some have lost loved ones and some have lost much to tragedies. Yet there are reasons and opportunities to spread love to others right now. A notion such as this may seem difficult, especially with the brutal mid-terms behind us, and some political runoff elections ahead of us; but let's just try to be civil to one another.

At Trump's recent press conference held at the White House, there was a dust-up between Jim Acosta, a correspondent for CNN, and a young White House female intern. The intern came to Acosta and asked him to give her the microphone so that she could pass it to the next person Trump called on. He refused, and there was a mild tussle for the microphone. The tussle ended when Trump insisted that the correspondent surrender the microphone. Trump made a forceful expression of his displeasure with Acosta's behavior, and he promptly revoked his "hard pass," the document that permits his entry to the White House.

Doubting that many really care, or are just “feed-up” with recent “politicking”, never-the-less I‘m noting my reflections, because I sense many curious, conflicting contradictions : believing the  Nov. 6 results conveyed a serious concern for what lies ahead --  especially for committed Constitutional Conservatives – like me. They’ll continue to be all manner of statistical evaluations, but my 70 + years of ‘involvement’ triggers commentary.

The basis for birth right citizenship in the United States is specifically outlined in the Constitution of the United States: 

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. (Fourteenth Amendment, Constitution of the United States, Ratified in 1868)

Our discussion is “birth citizenship” and not “naturalized citizenship.”
