Mika and Joe go toe to toe, to cover their tracks and hide the facts!!
As someone who has had more than their fair share of confrontation on Social Media, (No Xan, surely not?) I feel uniquely qualified to comment on recent back and forths between a certain Potus & a certain adulterous cable show host.
This week on the show we analyzed the confrontation that arose when Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski attempted to not only create copy for their show, but cover up a story The National Enquirer were going to share about them.
Mika and Joe were both married to other people and began an affair whilst hosting together and consequently divorced their partners and are now married to one another. That with dead interns and face lifts bleeding at Mar A Lago, we have one pretty wicked web that has been woven. With the level of feeling from some regarding The Donald, it was a genius plot to turn the tables and deflect from Joe and Mika’s bad behavior.
The true genius of this was to actually make “You” the people look stupid and so many of you fell into it hook, line and sinker. You see rather than face his action like a man, which we could respected, Scarborough tried to get help from Trump regarding The Enquirer story via Jared Kushner. Stating they had been unfair about Trump on their show, Kushner said they could always apologize.
Of course this translated in Trump Hate Language as Trumps Admin demanding an apology and yes the haters fell for it and believed it, because it’s Trump, it must be true. In typical Trump fashion, he took to Twitter to defend himself and quire rightly too. We all have first amendment rights to free speech, all except The President of course, or some would have you believe.
The Trump Hater Troop and his wife took to Twitter to express distress at his willingness to say these things, that were clearly UN-Presidential. Lets just hone in on that for a second. For the last 8 yrs we have had a Man in the Whitehouse who clearly cared more about everybody else than Americans, to the point of freeing terrorists, leaving Americans to die, funding terrorists and performing shadow initiatives to undermine Americans.
Still think Trump is UN-Presidential ?
Lets now get to the accusations that this is the most unconscionable thing to come from The Oval office. Lets not forget it housed a rapist who had sex with an intern, in The Oval Office and used a cigar to penetrate her and other such debauchery, yes: In the Oval Office. Tweeting to defend ones self is UN-Presidential?
The suggestion by some that when one becomes The President that it is undignified to respond to attacks on Social Media is frankly piffle. Agreed, one should be choosy as to what one replies too, how much abuse should one person take? Sorry, the answer Obama didn’t do it is disqualified and even he defended himself in ways people would consider underhand. Remember when he used the IRS to attack Conservatives & placed us on watch lists for disagreeing? I do!!
President Trump continues to refuse to be kicked publicly by his critics and describes his approach as MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. As someone who has been attacked, slandered, ridiculed and hated on Social Media for merely having an opinion, I really do have to concur. People don’t respond in this way if you are not making a difference and triggering some kind of response in them, even on a basic level.
The very idea that he should shut up and take it so not American and to label his every response as bullying is most hypocritical. Isn’t the commentary directed at him bullying or is that just one way? I get that people are not happy that he won and disagree with his positions and decisions. Believe me, there are things I don’t like about him and his policies, but I have to love America more than I dislike some things related to him.
He is trying hard to make America great again and all of this distraction, and that’s what it is, is not helpful. What do The Dems have to hide? What dose Joe Scarborough have to hide? It is clear that the level of descent is partly to with protecting legacies and preventing the real truth about The Obama Administrations illegal activities from getting out. Aren’t we better than this? Aren’t we?
Love and peace, Xan xo
As someone who has been on both sides of the political spectrum, I try not to generalize and encourage others not to do so either. When we make commentary about any one section of the community, there is for some a need to put them in a box. I get that if you are trying to discover trends about a demographic, but people are really not that simplistic, thankfully.
In the last few days I have become aware of syndrome I have decided to call CCP Syndrome. The symptoms are glaring but alas, do not fear, there is a free cure available. There is a need for both Democrats and Conservatives to think of “the other side” in a particular way in order to feel better about their choices/assumption etc.
The media knows it and actually relies on it to spread their toxic rhetoric and so do the Political Parties. Liberals are all one way and Conservatives another and one has to conform to a tick box list in order to somehow fit in or perhaps be thought of in a certain way. I call this cookie cutter politico syndrome and sadly we all conform to it, some even unconsciously.
The scary element in all of this is that it’s actually a method of control and is fixed into our thinking cycle. For some it's more about who they aspire to be than who they actually are. As someone that identifies as Republican there is actually an expectation attached to that title. Some of those things include that I will be pro life, pro death penalty, pro guns, anti immigration etc, which are all seen as core components of Conservatism.
Whether I identify one way or another should never mean totally conforming to fit a certain agenda. I never trust anyone who conforms 100% to party lines as it denotes compliance and not consideration. Our free thinking should extend to our political ideologies and we should feel free not to be automatons and think for ourselves.
The Media and the parties would not have you think this way or they would totally lose their control. The myth therein lies in how we are actually made to feel less of something for choosing to disagree with any particular component of the ideology. We should never be taking the watered down opinions of other and asserting them as our own, unless we really fully agree.
As I said there is a cure for CCP syndrome and it is very simple and something I have said before. Question and analyze everything, from whichever direction it comes from. All policy, ideology or opinion is formulated not including your perspective in the equation and your analysis is actually the end result. Your perspective.
Being told what to think and what to believe is highly suggestive and very easy to miss. Is it MK Ultra mind control?? Well in a way yes, but only if you let it be. The Media nowadays is sadly not about the facts, but merely opinion paraded as fact, paid for by whoever wants to control the tone of the information provided.
During the election this was highly visible from the particular direction a News Outlet took in their reporting of alleged facts. Sources say or we can now reveal have become the buzz words of media and it's a cop out for actually basing a story on the facts. Disturbing right?? That’s not even the most concerning part. They print such rot and hope the person can’t afford to sue and this has replaced having to use the word “Allegedly”
Sources revealed today that Xander Gibb weighs 100lbs and is going to become a Hollywood Heartthrob imminently. I even have a meme to prove it so it must be true right? It is so easy to be drawn in and to be told what to think and how to be, but you can break the chain. Take a step back, remember you are an individual and are not required to confirm to consider yourself a true anything unless it is a XanFan
Love & Peace

In a landmark decision last Friday, SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) voted 5 to 4 in favor of legalizing Same Sex Unions in all 50 states of the United States. A mixed reaction was received from sheer elation to total shock and horror.
Those of you that know me well, will be aware of just how much work I have put into effecting change in the last 25 years for the LGBT Community. For me this ruling should be a landmark in my timeline., as a gay person who believes in equality, however my response was sadly, bitter sweet.
Whilst I am elated that my community will finally have more rights, as a Christian and someone who considers themselves to be so much more than their sexuality, I will not be so easily bought with high priced tokens . It has become clear that not toeing the LGBT line has a price to pay but clearly I lost my fag badge some time ago.
For us to assume that this is a solid victory is nothing short of folly. When the US Government dealt with Civil Partnerships, they could have saved a lot of bad feeling and disharmony by affording exactly the same rights as Marriage, however they didn’t. Please do not delude yourself that the recent ruling is anything to do with equality or truly supporting our community, as the methodology is further evidence of governmental control attempts.
“Oh Xander but we now have full equality under the law”, I hear you say, but sadly we haven't and the cost of this empty gesture has far reaching consequences for us as a nation. If we analyze the rights afforded by Marriage and those of same sex Marriage, we will see they are anything but equal. Employment rights surely needed the most urgent attention as one can still be fired for being gay in some states.
Legalizing same-sex “marriage,” means The State can call upon public officials to preside over ceremonies, order public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punish any state employee who expresses disapproval. One could maybe argue Judges and officials should perform these ceremonies as it is their job, but do we really want anybody to be forced to accept us?
Ministers of Religion could also be forced by Law to perform these ceremonies under penalty of prosecution, even if they do not accept the sanctity of the ceremony. If a heterosexual approaches a Minister of religion to request a Marriage Ceremony be performed and the individual does not attend the church or is not a member of that faith, the Minister may refuse. How is this Equality if people are forced to participate? This is called slavery and no one should be forced to perform a service if they choose not too in these United States.
Christians will now be expected to ignore their conscience and comply or face prosecution. Is this really what we want in order to access our rights and to obtain equality? Is this what I have spent the last 25 years campaigning for? I really think not. If obtaining our rights includes trampling all over the rights of others, what have we really achieved?
Before you say “Xander, it would never happen” I am here to tell you that it already did. Donald and Evelyn Knapp, ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to a $1,000 fine. Equality is not about my rights being more important than yours, it is about them being the same or that would be privilege. surely? Saying no should be a right for whatever reason, and being forced is slavery.
There is method in the madness here and this is clearly the Government using Same Sex Marriage as a tool of control. Churches that refuse comply as well as being open to prosecution will more than likely lose their Tax Exempt status . If like me you were wondering what the cost is for all of this , you now have the answer. When did our community become the aggressors? Did I miss that memo?
I have defended our rights to the hilt and whilst I will continue to do so, I am really left scratching my head. This really is equality at any price any price and the fact that most won't see that we have been used, is the saddest part of all . Whilst division is never totally unavoidable, this was clearly premeditated and I cannot support or celebrate slavery. We all deserve equality under the law, but forcing others to comply or celebrate it is not what I signed up for. We need to see beyond the veneer of gestures of this kind and hold on tight. This is a very slippery slope!
Are you here to be liked or to make a difference?
Love and Peace, Xander.

Remaining compassionate whilst maintaining the courage of Our convictions.
After the announcement recently that Indiana had passed its own version of A Religious Freedom bill, to which my first response was if I am honest disappointment. The misinformation and scare mongering reached epic proportions and drew the haters out of the woodwork. As a result of this bill some Conservatives even began using the phraseology “LGBT Jihad”
There have been a few items in the news pertaining to Business’s refusing to cater for events that were LGTB in origin. Most memorably there was the Baker who refused to bake a cake for a Gay Wedding and the Pizza Store who also refused to cater. No too sure what group of miscreants would want to serve pizza at a wedding but taste is clearly relative.
As a gay person I feel sad that people are refused service on the grounds of their sexuality or perceived orientation but one cannot presume to force another into service or that would be slavery right? If I was ever refused service on the grounds of my sexuality, I would find some other company that wanted to take my gay money as it is still a buyers market. I do have to wonder how many of these businesses would refuse to cater a wedding for a divorcee, a murderer or someone who wears clothing made of mixed fibers.
Market forces will always dictate the success or failure of a business and if people are willing to diminish the number of clients through the door by refusing to serve certain groups, word does get around and either those who agree with your stance will patronize your establishment or you will have to close.
The reasons stated by the pizza people for not providing a service was that they didn’t agree with gay marriage as it was in their opinion, not acceptable and they did not want to be a part of that. Participating in their opinion added some element of culpability however if you sell someone a gun and they kill someone you would not have a level of culpability.
Whilst I may vehemently disagree with the fact that people do this I fundamentally recognize their right to do so. My issue with this is the level of hypocrisy attached to this. They would serve an adulterer or a murderer or any other common or garden sinner. If you consider homosexuality to be a sin, the bible teaches us that there is no grading in sin, so why do some Christians seek to elevate some sins/perceived sins over others?
Much to the chagrin of some of my LGBT brethren, I have over the last few years evolved, personally, politically and in many other ways. For so long I thought all Conservatives and Republicans were haters and believe me some are to the point of being hypocrites. The reality is so many are not and want the same things as you or I and genuinely care and love and want things to change and get better.
Getting to know so many Conservatives and even developing very close relationships both personally and professionally I grew and actually changed for the better. I have even been told by some that have learned a lot from me. Whilst I wish to continue growing with my fellow Americans who I might not see eye to eye with on every issue, there sadly comes a point where one has to draw a clear line in the sand and stand up for what one believes.
Since gay marriage has being legalized in so many states and also the institution of laws that were initially set out to protect us things have shifted somewhat. Some (and please notice that I care enough not to generalize) Conservative Christians have really shown their true colors and have sadly wrapped that fact in scripture, and used it to attack which still does not make it right.
Whilst I am big enough to stick up for myself and even for you from time to time, there are those among us who cannot. It really is our job gay or straight, black or white, whatever to attempt to make a difference for them and us. If we are ever going to come together as Americans we have to learn to live together, differences and all. To not do so will really will become our undoing and the blame is not just on one side of the divide. I am here to tell you it is on both.
I have spent the majority of my adult life working to further equality for the LGBT community and of late have been left somewhat disillusioned. I do not feel we have the right as gay people to force service provision. I do feel we have the right to access the same rights as other people, but I do not believe that Ministers of Religion should be forced to marry two people of the same sex if they do not agree with that standing.
Have we as the LGBT community forgotten what this struggle was about? We cannot force acceptance and to do so makes us as bad if not worse than those who we say oppress us.
By the same token Christians can’t go around hating gay people because of gay marriage and the laws of protection. Where is the love? Did you forget about the message of our savior Jesus Christ? He came to this earth to teach us to love one another and died nailed to a cross to declare his love for mankind. All of mankind, regardless of sexuality, how you vote or what your opinions are. I hate to break it too you Conservative Christians, but Jesus died for the gays too.
I have kept my cool on Social Media for so long but really had to respond yesterday to a meme someone had crudely made misquoting scripture. (See above) It read CHRISTIANS REBUKE THE GAY COMMUNITY! HOMESEXUALITY IS AN ABOMINATION! (LEV.18:22) HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS SIGN GO COMPLAIN TO YAWEH. Aside of the blatant misuse of scripture and the fact that nowhere in the Bible are the words Homosexual or Homosexuality found, here is a Conservative Christian calling for the harassment of gays on FaceBook!
Why are they not harassing thieves, adulterers and murderers too? Where did we go wrong? Did we suddenly lose the need for God? I don’t want to be tolerated and I will not stand idly by while you alter scripture and use it to hit me over the head with. I will not be subjected to harassment on Social Media for being gay. I will not debate with people whose sole quest is to elevate Homosexuality as an unforgivable sin and worse than any other if you consider it to be a sin. Sin is sin, is sin………
In order for change to occur we all have to try harder and stop judging each other. It is one thing to maintain the courage of your conviction, but in doing so we must remain compassionate. I am speaking to all of us in that statement, we need to remain compassionate and try to work together for the greater good. Hate begets hate and we need to stop the hate as it trickles downward. None of us are without sin and need to deal with the sin in our own lives before point out the sin or perceived sin in others. Love is louder!
