How many readers remember Steven Quincy Urkel, generally known as Steve Urkel, or just simply Urkel? This information is from Wikepedia and I have no idea why the name Jaleel White is under the picture. He was the fictional character on the ABC/CBS sitcom Family Matters, the epitome of a geek-nerd/ with large, thick eyeglasses, pants held up by suspenders, multi-colored cardigan sweaters, and a high pitched voice who would ask after doing something stupid, “Did I do that?” which brings me to my article on the Martin Luther King holiday where I indicated George Washington’s birthday was in January and suggested in order to accommodate King’s birthday holiday in January, Washington got moved to February with Lincoln and it became President’s Day – another way so people will eventually forget the names of our presidents. Did I do that?

Media outlets bury their mistakes on the last page. Yes, they do that! However, I felt I needed to write another article to correct my unintentional error that one astute reader so graciously called to my attention. While I’m sure many others saw the error but in today’s busy world, didn’t feel like they wanted to take the time to write to me. Instead of Fact Checking which isn’t always reliable, human nature hates to be wrong so I set out to have the last word.


As early as February 24, 1989 in my LEGISLATIVE ACTION newsletter I was already confused about the birthdays of the presidents. I wrote, “Abe Lincoln was commemorated by an Oregon Republican Senator on the Senate floor on February 20th but isn’t February 20th closer to Washington’s birthday which used to be on February 22nd? Wasn’t old honest Abe Lincoln born on February 16th or was he the 16th President born on February 12th? How easy it will be for future generations to never know the birthdays of Lincoln and Washington because they’d been morphed into President’s Day, and of course, that is the purpose of the revisionists. To complicate matters even more, these birthdays turned into 3-day paid holidays for government workers.

In George Orwell’s book entitled 1984 he talked about “Big Brother” and warned there would be a rewriting of history and we now see it happening. Because we’ve been deceived so often, it wasn’t hard for my conspiratorial mind to think history had been rewritten to accommodate the MLK holiday/birthday. Somewhere I got my wires crossed and I put Washington into January. My deceased mother’s birthday was in January or maybe I had an old boyfriend named George with that January birthday. I know I had a neighbor girl with January birthday. I’ve got to blame somebody or something so maybe the False Flag events we’ve experienced has something to do with it.

I did have my regular critic from New York who writes me one to two typewritten single spaced pages nearly every time after he sees one of my articles. He prides himself as having all the answers while telling me how incredibly stupid I am and nearly every paragraph starts out, “this latest post of yours…is even more ridiculous, clueless and off the mark than what you usually write…You just don’t get the fact that communism is as dead as fish on the beach and will never be revived.” However, his vain jangling fails to realize even some liberal Democrats are beginning to worry about Obama’s “making friendly” with once bitter Communist countries. However, while failing to pick up on the birthday error, he also adds, “If President Obama is a ‘communist,’ he’s doing a lousy job of it…Stalin and Mao are looking up from hell and saying ‘this guy is the worst communist dictator ever!” I Timothy 1:6 in the Bible calls this “empty chatter.”


Many will remember the 9/11/2001 planes flying into the New York City Twin Towers and watching as the buildings collapsed. A reporter from recently interviewed a retired Fire Marshall who saw it all and again said it was a “false flag.” He said explosives brought down those buildings which are built to withstand a fire but not bombs. So it’s not unreasonable for me to believe something fishy might have taken place with the MLK holiday legislation because history reveals how it was rushed into law four days after it was introduced in the House and was passed quickly and approved in the Senate. Then there was a gag order that had been put in place for 50 years. Another reader said he thought President Reagan had extended that gag order 25 more years so everyone alive when this national holiday was proclaimed should nearly all be dead. Conspiracy? Naaaah. Did I say that?

Under President Bill Clinton, on March 22nd, a little more than three weeks before the OKC bombing, the Newark, New Jersey STAR-LEDGER reported that “U.S. law enforcement authorities had obtained information that Islamic terrorists may be planning suicide attacks against federal court houses and government installations in the U.S. The attacks, it is feared, would be designed to attract worldwide press attention through the murder of innocent victims.”

Why: Because of an incident during the trial of four persons in the bombing of the World Trade Center in New York. An informant, Cary James Gagan, delivered a letter to the Justice Department on April 6, 1995 reporting that he had “specific information that within two weeks” a federal building was to be bombed. After the April 19th OKC bombing, a spokesmen for the Justice Department stated they had not – and still did not – deem the informant to be credible (but a few months earlier they’d given him immunity.)[1]

The major portion of the damage to the Federal Murrah Building, and most if not all of the deaths and injuries, was NOT caused by a fertilizer bomb exploding on a truck outside the building.[2] The major cause: explosives under the building and then the Clinton cover up. In both cases, evidence was quickly hauled away and Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were arrested and indicted for the 1995 bombing that claimed 169 lives.[3] Janet Napolitano, head of the Department of Homeland Security in her “Vet Threat” article said that “rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans who possess combat skills.” This information had been supplied by a civil-rights organization called the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Timothy McVeigh’s name was invoked. Media Bypass reported that Tim wrote a letter on April 4, 2001 and sent a copy of the same letter to other media sources. “I explain herein why I bombed the Murrah Federal Building in OKC.” McVeigh was put to death by the government.

The SPLC is a huge socialist organization and provides its glossy expensive magazines free of charge to all teachers/administrators in the public schools. It is packed with subversive “how-to-‘s” on topics of their choice. An article by JB Williams lists all the other school shootings, etc. that were taking place and asks “What Makes American Children Want to Kill? But not one mention about left-wing radicals like Bill Ayers that were never charged but awarded lucrative book deals and professorships in prestigious universities. In the forefront of the Brown/Garner recent demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri and New York we find 1960s fellow travelers and veterans of Ayers again stoking the fires of resentment with the same old Marxist chants and signs.[4]


February gave me a birthday on the first anniversary of my parents when couples didn’t have a baby until after they were married. Our first great grandchild was scheduled to be born on my birthday but doctors don’t work on Sunday – especially 2014 Super Bowl Sunday so his birth got postponed to the next day. We also have a son and grandson with February birthdays along with a God daughter and many friends so February has been a very good month when we all joined two U.S. presidents.


There are Urkels among us. Did we do that? Are we rebelling against God” As I’m drafting this article, they are heading to the Super Bowl game and the week earlier, Urkels were more concerned about the integrity in the game of football and whether the football had enough air in it than they are about the integrity of the Constitution and the “hot air” buffoons we’ve been electing. This apathy also happened in the 1930s in Germany. The Supreme Court is one of the biggest violators.


Award winning school teacher extraordinary, Marva Collins, took her Public School teacher retirement to open her own school in Chicago. She says in her 1982 book MARVA COLLINS’ WAY that her grandmother was forever reciting Proverbs and Marva taught them to her students for class discussion and writing assignment. Contrast this teaching method to the school shootings article above by J.B. Williams. An August 1981 Guideposts series told how she turned kids rejected by the public school system into scholars.

Ben Carson, possible presidential candidate, in his 2014 book ONE NATION said his mother insisted he and his brother read two books of Proverbs per week. Solemon, son of David was known for his wisdom, is the author of the books and his mother gave Ben a middle name of Solemon. He is a successful retired neurosurgeon who gained notoriety for separating twins conjoined at birth at the head. He has been making appearance on a variety of media outlets. The Wall Street Journal commenting on his book said “The John Hopkins neurosurgeon may not be politically correct but he’s closer to correct then we’ve heard in years.” Ben goes into great detail in his book to describe his vision for a wiser health care system.

Pastor David Whitney writes about ‘Faithfulness is the Foundation” and how Mississippi wants to designate the Bible as the state book because the Bible provides a good role model.

So dear friends, I got Washington’s birthday wrong. When I was corrected, I may have hated to admit it but I’m making the correction. Integrity begins with each of us and we must begin electing Godly men with a strong emphasis on character. Google “Jailed Democrat Who Won Reelection Hit With Four More Felonies.”

A federal court ruling struck down North Carolina’s voter-passed Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman. I say hats off to the six county magistrates who resigned rather than perform gay marriages. And the deceit never seems to end. Because the 17th Amendment was never ratified, states lack power and so a federal court ruled.
