POLL: Cultural Incivility due to Politicians, Media and Demostrators

NEW YORK, NY /PRNewswire/ — In the aftermath of a divisive presidential election, the American people are united in their belief that the campaign was – and our culture is – uncivil, according to the seventh annual Civility in America poll conducted by Weber Shandwick and Powell Tate with KRC Research. This unified outlook on the state of civility in America, not surprisingly, divides along partisan lines in terms of who is responsible, how uncivil the presidential candidates were and the likelihood that our national civility “crisis” will ease anytime soon.

A record high 69 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem, a view shared equally by people who voted for Donald Trump or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Seventy-five percent say incivility has risen to crisis levels, with Clinton voters more likely to have that view than those who voted for Trump (81 vs. 72 percent, respectively).

Among the nearly six in 10 Americans (56 percent) who expect civility to get worse in the next few years, nearly 9 in 10 Clinton voters (89 percent) named politicians as the group most responsible for the decline in civility, followed by the Internet/social media (69 percent) and news media (51 percent). Trump voters blamed the news media (77 percent), demonstrators/protestors (76 percent) and the Internet/social media (75 percent). Only 28 percent of Clinton voters saw demonstrators or protesters as a leading reason for the erosion of civility in the years ahead. Only 53 percent of Trump voters cited politicians.

“We have been tracking how civility impacts our nation’s social fabric since 2010, and we have seen a steady increase over that time in the recognition of how civility is a major problem facing Americans,” said Andy Polansky, CEO of Weber Shandwick. “Without a doubt, public discourse was challenged in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and the public is divided about whether we will see an improving environment for thoughtful dialogue in the public sphere.”

While citing the media for contributing to the nation’s incivility, both Trump and Clinton voters said broadcast/cable news and the Internet/social media are by far their leading sources of news about national politics. Eighty-three percent of Trump voters and 88 percent of Clinton supporters said the media is obligated to report when a public official is lying.

There was also agreement on the uncivil nature of the 2016 presidential campaign. By nearly a 4-to-1 margin (79 vs. 21 percent), Americans found the election uncivil. While substantial majorities of Trump and Clinton voters (72 and 83 percent, respectively) viewed the campaign as uncivil, there was significant disagreement in the two camps about the civility of the two candidates.

Voters were equally divided over Secretary Clinton’s civility (47 percent uncivil vs. 50 percent civil), but views differ between Trump and Clinton voters. Eighty percent of Secretary Clinton’s supporters saw her as civil, with only 18 percent saying she was uncivil. Of Trump’s voters, 77 percent said Clinton was uncivil against 21 percent who thought her civil.

As a candidate, Trump was viewed as uncivil by 72 percent of American voters, with only 26 percent finding his candidacy civil. Even a majority of his voters (53 percent) found him uncivil vs. civil (46 percent). Clinton’s voters found Trump more uncivil (89 percent) than civil (nine percent).

While majorities of both Trump and Clinton voters said civility was an important consideration in their decision to vote for their candidate, the two camps split in their willingness to accept uncivil campaign rhetoric.

Although only a third of Americans (31 percent) agreed that “there is nothing wrong with a politician saying what is on their mind, no matter how uncivil,” there was a pronounced difference in the opinion of Trump and Clinton voters. Nearly half of Trump voters (48 percent) agreed with this statement while only one out of five Clinton voters (21 percent) did.

“What these findings suggest is that some of candidate Trump’s campaign rhetoric that was criticized as uncivil was interpreted as appealing, tell-it-like-it-is authenticity to many voters,” said Pam Jenkins, President of Powell Tate.

Looking beyond the presidential campaign to the new president’s administration, voters were all but unanimous in saying it’s important for a president to act in a civil manner, with 97 percent of Trump voters and 99 percent of Clinton voters agreed on that point.

The voters agreed that political incivility affects the reputation of the U.S. (86 percent); that uncivil comments by political leaders encourages greater incivility in society (79 percent); that incivility leads to less political engagement on the part of the American people (75 percent); that the U.S. is losing stature as a civil nation (73 percent) and that incivility deters people from entering public service (59 percent). These views were held by majorities of both Trump and Clinton voters.

The incivility of the presidential campaign kept some people from going to the polls altogether: Incivility was cited by 59 percent of non-voters as either a major factor (41 percent ) or minor factor (18 percent) in their decision not to vote in 2016.

“The American people are aware of, and worried about, the consequences of the incivility that has infected our society and political process,” said Jack Leslie, Chairman, Weber Shandwick.

Optimism that the nation will become more civil in the years ahead followed people’s voting patterns with 84 percent of Trump voters hopeful about the future of civility in America, compared with only 27 percent of Clinton voters.

The seventh annual Civility in America survey captures the American public’s views on civility in society. Subsequent reports on civility as it relates to personal interactions, the workplace and solutions for fostering a more civil public discourse, will be released in the coming months.

Trump-Hating Protesters, Deceit & Willful Blindness: Left’s lies about Immigration, Drugs & Terrorism

On January 20, 2017, the very same day that President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated, protestors who opposed Trump’s election and his campaign promises took to the streets in Washington, DC and elsewhere. They falsely equated securing America’s borders and enforcing our immigration laws with bigotry and racism.

The protestors carried signs with a variety of slogans including a slogan favored by Hillary Clinton during her failed bid for the presidency, “Build bridges, not walls.”

Where were these protestors when Obama violated the Constitution, released hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens, commuted the sentences of record numbers of drug dealers and ignored the findings of the 9/11 Commission and imported millions of foreign workers to take Americans’ jobs?

Ironically, on that same day, the Justice Department issued a press release, “Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera Faces Charges in New York for Leading a Continuing Criminal Enterprise and other Drug-Related Charges.”

El Chapo was the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel that smuggled multi-ton quantities of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States and used extreme violence and corruption in order to achieve their criminal goals that included the smuggling of huge quantities of illegal drugs into the United States.

The press release contains links to the Detention Memo and the Indictment and begins with these two paragraphs:

The indictment alleges that between January 1989 and December 2014, Guzman Loera led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for importing into the United States and distributing massive amounts of illegal narcotics and conspiring to murder persons who posed a threat to Guzman Loera’s narcotics enterprise.

Guzman Loera is also charged with using firearms in relation to his drug trafficking and money laundering relating to the bulk smuggling from the United States to Mexico of more than $14 billion in cash proceeds from narcotics sales throughout the United States and Canada. As part of this investigation, nearly 200,000 kilograms of cocaine linked to the Sinaloa Cartel have been seized. The indictment seeks forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits.

Leaders of Drug Trafficking Organizations, alien smuggling rings and terrorists seeking to enter the United States surreptitiously could not devise a better slogan than “Build bridges not walls” to promote their criminal interests.

Perhaps, given the numerous reports about tunnels under the U.S./Mexican border, the open borders/immigration anarchists should amend their signs to read, “Build bridges and tunnels not walls.”

That slogan must really resonate with El Chapo the leader of the violent Sinaloa Mexican Drug Trafficking Organization that, not unlike other such cartels, required the ability to cross the U.S./Mexican border to not only transport their drugs but their “employees” into the United States as well.

These cartel “employees” are primarily aliens who enter the United States illegally.  Among them as noted in the criminal indictment, are “sicarios,” or hit men who carried out hundreds of acts of violence, including murders, assaults, kidnappings, assassinations and acts of torture at the direction of the defendants.

Often the victims of the violence are members of the ethnic immigrant communities in which these thugs operate.

The majority of violent crime in the United States has a nexus to the use and/or trafficking in narcotics and dangerous drugs.  The proceeds of the drug trade enriches the drug cartels and street gangs.  This fast flow of money also enriches terror organizations around the world.

All too often those who become addicted to drugs have bleak futures.  Tragically, often these addicts are teenagers.

The magnitude of the quantity of drugs smuggled into the United States across the U.S./Mexican border and through other means (in the holds of ships and in the cargo holds of airliners and in the baggage and secreted on passengers of airliners) is, in the aggregate, truly staggering.

El Chapo is being prosecuted in the Eastern District of New York because of the magnitude of his wholesale operations in New York City.  The Sinaloa Cartel also operated in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles and throughout parts of Arizona.

The magnitude and scope of the violence used by the Sinaloa Cartel was staggering and the press release noted that thousands of individuals were killed in Mexico to eliminate those who got in their way.

They killed law enforcement officials and others to intimidate those who would compete against this criminal organization or cooperate with law enforcement.  Many of the victims were beheaded as an intimidation tactic.

This investigation was conducted by courageous law enforcement officers in Colombia, Mexico, the United States and elsewhere.  In the United States the investigation was pursued by the multi-agency Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) that includes agents of the DEA, FBI, ICE, ATF as well as members of local and state police departments.

Having spent the final ten years of my career with the INS assigned to OCDETF I am extremely familiar with the effectiveness of the multiagency task force approach to the investigation and dismantling of late-scale narcotics trafficking organizations and just how critical border security and effective enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws, from within the interior of the United States, are to the success of these law enforcement efforts.

Incredibly, however, when Donald Trump promised to build a wall to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico to prevent criminals, terrorists and drugs from entering the United States, the globalists, aided and abetted by dishonest journalists, created the false narrative equating Trump’s goals and the goals of Americans who demand that our borders be secured against illegal entry with racism.

Securing our borders against illegal entry is not to be equated with preventing all aliens from entering the United States, only those aliens who violate our laws.

The doors on our homes have locks that can be unlatched not only so that we can enter our own homes, but so that we can selectively open our doors to those who wish to visit us.  However sensible people lock their doors to prevent the entry of burglars and those who might pose a threat to their safety.

This is comparable to the mission of the inspections process conducted at ports of entry by the more than 20,000 inspectors of CBP (Customs and Border Protection) the same agency that employs approximately 20,000 Border Patrol agents to attempt to interdict those aliens who seek to avoid the inspections process by running our borders.

Determinations as to the admissibility of aliens seeking entry into the United States is guided not by race, religion or ethnicity as politicians, pundits and pollsters falsely claim, but by the provisions of Title 8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens.

Jimmy Carter created the Orwellian term “Undocumented Immigrant” to describe illegal aliens that has, over time, enabled immigration anarchists to con many Americans into believing that deporting illegal aliens actually refers to deporting all “immigrants.”

For the sake of clarity, the difference between and immigrant and an illegal alien is comparable to the difference between a houseguest and a burglar.

However, while the protestors demonstrate and engage in free speech, they need to be mindful that a one-sided conversation is not a conversation.

When news organizations provide only one side of the debate and, indeed, create a false narrative under the guise of the First Amendment, they are doing a huge disservice to their profession and to America and Americans.

How many of the protestors who demanded that we “build bridges not walls” would have participated in the demonstration carrying those signs, if the organizations, faculty members of universities and teachers in our nation’s schools would truly honor the First Amendment by ending “Safe Spaces” and encouraging and fostering honest and open debates to provide Americans with a vital but increasingly rare commodity:  The Truth?

It is unfathomable that hundreds of thousands of people, many of them parents, would protest on behalf of El Chapo and others engaged in the drug trade to facilitate the trafficking or narcotics in the United States and the violent crimes and malevolent transnational gangs associated with the drug trade.  Yet, unwittingly, this is precisely what they are doing.

It is equally likely that the numbers of such protestors would have been greatly reduced if the media and our politicians had honestly reported on the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission when reporting on the threat of terrorism and its nexus to failures of the immigration system.

Yet there they were, demanding that our borders be left vulnerable and our immigration laws not be enforced.

“Free speech” does not protect individuals who falsely cry, “Fire!” in a crowded theater to spark a stampede.

Memo to professors, journalists, pollsters and politicians: It is time for honest speech.

Marco Rubio has a hard time with Rex Tillerson — but backed Communist John Kerry

Senator Marco Rubio,

I understand you are having a difficult time trying to decide to vote yes to confirm President Trump’s pick for Secretary of State.

Such a shame that you have such a low disregard for Mr. Tillerson because he does not wish to engage Russia as our enemy but as a mutual strategic partner in trade and national security and to defeat terrorism.

John Kerry speaks at Senate Foreign Relations Committee on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War in Washington, D.C. on April 22, 1971. (AP Photo/Henry Griffin)

Perhaps you should have shown this moral clarity when you voted YES and confirmed the Communist sympathizer John Kerry as Secretary of State.

No Sir – you gave John Kerry  a pass even though this man shredded the US Constitution, engaged us in unconstitutional wars and broke US law by illegally negotiating with Communist North Vietnam while our boys came home in body bags from NAM.

My friend Colonel Bud Day Medal of Honor (RIP)  helped end John Kerry’s presidential aspirations then dipsticks like you hired him as the Secretary of State giving him 4th in line to the presidency.

I think you need to call Bud Day’s widow Doris and apologize to her on your hands and knees for your blatant disrespect for this nation and its Vietnam Veterans.

You supported John Kerry even though he disparaged and lied to Congress about our brave and honorable  Vietnam Veterans – a man who threw his medals (handed to him in under 40 days in Nam)  over the White House fence –  yet you attacked Mr. Tillerson for his support of our future ally Russia.

The New World Order – George Soros Communists hate Russia so you apparently also support this New World Order ideology – shame on you.    Perhaps George Soros is texting you to vote NO on Tillerson.

I salute all our brave and courageous Vietnam Veterans across this nation. I did not serve in Vietnam, but I say this to you all  “Welcome home my brothers”  “May God bless you always”.

As for you Senator Rubio –  go home and find your safe space in Miami. You are not strong enough to protect this nation in the U.S. Senate.

UPDATE: Rubio states he has reservations but will now vote for Mr. Tillerson –  my only question is why did Rubio have NO reservations about supporting John Kerry.

The Deception Behind The Women’s March In Washington

The Women’s March which descended upon Washington D.C. and across the nation, apparently in response to the election of Trump as president, marketed itself as being inclusive, non-partisan and generated a statement on their official website that says, “We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”

Ironically, the rally was held on the 43rd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 abortion ruling in Roe vs. Wade. Apparently, unborn fetuses don’t need to be defended, just helpless women who hold a grudge against society after eight years of Democrat rule in the White House under Obama.

It is estimated that over 1800 buses were used to shuttle women from across the country like cattle to the event. However, many of the women who had brought their children had a difficult time articulating why they were even there. Ironically, pro-life Muslim women were welcome but non-Muslim women who were pro-life were not. Perhaps this may have had something to do with one of the organizer’s, Linda Sarsour, a Muslim Palestinian- American activist, who has ties to Hamas inspired organizations and has a record of defending Islamic Jihad members such as Muhammad Allen, a known recruiter of suicide bombers. Sarsour has a history of being involved in a number of protests including Black Lives Matter, Ferguson and the Trayvon Martin uprisings.

More evidence has revealed that more than 50 Soros-Funded groups partnered with the Women’s March. Not only was this a well organized event, it was a partisan event and Soros money was everywhere. NYT reporter Asra A. Nomani found financial ties between Soros and at least 56 of the March’s “partners.”

Another group which promoted the ‘March’ and has been prevalent at protests across the country is CPUSA, Communist Party U.S.A. It actively promoted the Women’s March on its website and never has missed an opportunity for disruption at events such as BLM, Ferguson and Trump rallies.

Interestingly, another shadow pro-abortion group who has strongly opposed President Trump on the campaign trail that didn’t hesitate to take to the streets in protest was the Satanic Temple, a group of self-proclaimed atheists and Satanists. This group proudly walked down the street dressed in all black holding the Satanic Temple sign. The Satanists are beginning to become less elusive, though and are now promoting after school Satanic groups for our youth and a self declared Satanic middle school teacher was able to successfully have a Satanic symbol displayed at a square in Boca Raton, Florida.

After Trump’s inauguration many supporters believed that our country had been saved from the over reach of an out of control government and influence from radical leftists and Islamists. It appears that the battle will continue as some organizers who support shariah law claim to fight for women’s rights, others who support communist demagoguery call for women’s emancipation, while others who deny God have chosen promote an evil darkness.

Will President Trump Bow To Nattering Nabobs and Accessories to Murder?

President Trump will have his hands full for quite a while, and dealing decisively with some contentious opponents and issues will be on the burner. It will be interesting to watch.

NABOBS

Just before President Trump was sworn in, the U.S. Press Corps threw down the gauntlet saying that they will “set the rules” (whatever they are – presumably in dealing with the media), not him. Early in in the presidential campaign, certain members of the press apparently said unkind things about Trump that caused his combative personality to respond by calling the MSM (Main Street Media) out as liars.

During the campaign, a few self-important reporters thought they were extra privileged. During media events, they interrupted proceedings and called out questions when they had not been called on. They were out of line. Candidate Trump essentially set them straight because they had violated rules of decorum (waiting their turn) and behaving in a respectful and civil manner. Jorge Ramos was arrogant and demanding, and Candidate Trump kicked him out of a press conference in august, 2015.

Just before being sworn in, President-Elect Trump was holding a press conference when CNN’s Jim Acosta rudely started interrupting when Trump was in the midst of a question form another reporter, and Acosta arrogantly demanded that Trump take his question immediately. Trump shot back at him pointing out that Acosta needed to wait his turn. When Acosta kept interrupting, Trump responded that he (Acosta) makes “fake” news and that his organization (CNN) was terrible. Acosta never had his demand answered.

These media elites may have bitten off more than they can chew because President Trump knows how to deal with problems. First, his Chief-of-Staff, Reince Preibus indicated that they were considering moving press events out of the White House where there is seating for just 40+ members of the press, the “big guys”. Press events will be moved to the next door Executive Office Building where a couple of hundred can be accommodated. This will open things up for more media coverage that may be more fair, competitive, and reasonable.

Also, seating for the media can be assigned and controlled. Then, whoever is at the podium can have a chart indicating who is in which seat and deny questions from those considered problems because of in accurate or fictional reporting (lies). This can continue for weeks if necessary until those members of the press “see the light” and start reporting honestly and factually. This could start very soon.

ACCESSORIES TO CRIMES

Many mayors, city councils and law enforcement officers could or should soon find themselves in handcuffs doing “perp walks”. These are those who harbor and protect criminals that some just like to downplay by calling them “illegals”. Among these are murderers, rapists, robbers, drug peddlers, etc. When push comes to shove, anyone who enters the United States illegally has committed a criminal offense. Most just came to try to eke out a living for their families, but among them are substantial numbers of really bad players.

Technically, these public officials are willfully and knowingly breaking the one or more laws by harboring and protecting criminals, a federal offense involving being Accessories to Murder in some cases. The murder of Kate Steinle by a five-times deported criminal is one case in point. The Mayor and Chief of police of San Francisco, by refusing to apprehend and turn this criminal over to Federal authorities are accessories to Kate Steinle’s murder.

By sending thousands of violent, dangerous criminals (who often prey on simple border jumpers – their own people) back to the southern side of the border, they will again appropriately become Mexico’s problems, for the Mexicans to deal with.

For decades Mexico has shipped their problems to (dumped them on) America leaving America acting as a pressure release valve for Mexico’s problems. This has been an enormous burden on the American people costing many billions of dollars over those decades. (I discuss this at some length in my book, EXPERIENCING ISLAM – in the chapters devoted to the Mexican issues and problems. In that book, I also discussed using Mexicans in America to build the wall and thus “earning” green cards. After all, if a wall is good in protecting ‘el Presidentes’ in Mexico, the wall will be fine in protecting Americans from Mexico’s problems.

The Angry American

From time to time we all read a piece that we unanimously agree is brilliant.  The article entitled “The Angry Man,” by John Krawczyk, published at The American Thinker, on October 28, 2016, is just such a piece. As a writer who believes in his own abilities – meager though they may be – I find myself thinking: Wow! I wish I had written that! – as I marvel at the common sense and insightfulness of the author. Not wishing to take away from his wisdom, I’d like to offer a few additional thoughts of my own.

The first of these – and I’m sure that Mr. Krawczyk would not disagree with my intent – is to point out that the article might well have been entitled “The Angry American” (the title of this article) – which would, of course, include both men and women. Perhaps knowing from the outset how he would (quite masterfully) conclude his piece, he chose to do otherwise. The fact remains, however, that the views and feelings expressed by the author were and are clearly shared by tens of millions of women, as well as men, across this great land.

The purposefully-skewed national polling throughout the campaign – designed to reflect a carefully-crafted and pre-determined narrative – falsely, I believe, indicated that college-educated women did not favor Donald Trump – only those who did not attend college. Now while the Left has clearly succeeded in destroying any semblance of free thought on college campuses nationwide, we can at least hope that they haven’t entirely succeeded in eradicating the native intelligence of the co-eds who now outnumber their male counterparts by close to 40% (37% roughly – 11 million to just over 8 million).

While the number of men who supported Donald Trump simply could not be suppressed, the deliberately-designed message with respect to the females who had boarded the Trump Train was that they were “uneducated” – i.e., unintelligent (and probably barefoot and pregnant as well!). Clearly – according to the National Press – no “educated” woman could or would support, or vote for, such a man; but many did, and still do, fully support him…which brings me to my next point.

As documented in my just-released book on the election, the voter fraud – about which our new champion had clearly warned us – was indeed rampant, even massive. While they did not succeed in silencing the voices of the majority of Americans who legally cast their vote for Mr. Trump, they, the Democrats and their fully-owned subsidiary, the National Media, were able to deceitfully create the illusion that he did not win the popular vote – thus bolstering their claim that his victory was and is “not legitimate” as was just officially pronounced by the “conscience” of House Democrats, John Lewis, and in no way represents any kind of mandate. Both points are patently false, however.

The Trump victory – a victory for the American People – is one of the three most pivotal in our nation’s history. The first of those was that of the little-known backwoods lawyer from Springfield, Illinois, Abraham Lincoln; the second, that of the folksy movie star and former California governor, Ronald Wilson Reagan; and the third – and perhaps the most significant of all – was that of the un-PC populist, and brash billionaire, Donald John Trump.

When asked how he would compare the feeling he had when he awoke on November 9th, the day after the Trump election, with how he felt on the morning following the Reagan victory, Rush Limbaugh in effect said, “There was no comparison!” – that the Trump victory was far more significant in terms of what was at stake; i.e., how far we had (have) fallen as a nation in the intervening years, and particularly in these past eight.

There is no question that Rush was right in his assessment. Had Hillary Clinton – the most corrupt candidate to ever secure the nomination of a major U.S. political party – won, it would surely have meant the death of the country as we have known it, and the completion of Barack Obama’s now-fully-repudiated “fundamental transformation of the United States of America.”

So, we dodged a bullet. No, actually we dodged a strategically-aimed nuclear warhead, designed to bring down the one final impediment to the ushering in of the Left’s long-awaited
“workers’ paradise” – a dictatorial and oppressive one-world oligarchy, led by them, the “enlightened” among us; but God gave us a champion in Donald Trump, and we, the American People, rallied behind him, thus staving off our imminent destruction…for now, at least – which brings me to one of my final points.

Yes, no matter how much it may offend the erudite sensibilities of the anti-religious Left to hear it, God has given us this victory; and we, the American People, have embraced it. We now have two primary enemies as we move forward. The first of these is our own arrogance or pride. While the President-Elect has promised to restore our greatness – with a focus on our safety and our prosperity – it is the abandonment of our moral and spiritual values which have directly led to our near-cataclysmic demise.

The irony in the pronouncement of the Left’s false messiah, Barack Obama, that we were “no longer a Christian nation,” is that he correctly identified, and underscored, our true spiritual foundation – what we once were. (His additional assertion that Muslims had played a key role in our founding, of course, went unsubstantiated; and, I might add, no one that I know is aware of any such contribution.) If we do not, however, defend and uphold our founding religious and spiritual values, we will incur the wrath of a just God; and those values include the sanctity of the marriage covenant and relationship, which have existed throughout the world, without challenge, from the beginning of recorded history…until now, that is; and the protection of the lives of the most innocent and defenseless among us – the unborn.

Indeed, the Preamble itself presciently (nay, prophetically) declares: “we do ordain and establish this Constitution [and, of course, all of its rights and protections] to ourselves and our posterity” – by definition, to those yet unborn. If, for the sake of presumed (not actual) “political expediency” – in order to appease the enemies of all that we hold dear (those whom we soundly defeated nationwide in this past election) – we do not return to, and fight for, these foundational values (decidedly spiritual, and not merely “social” as they have been dismissively designated), any prosperity which we might achieve as a nation will be short-lived…which brings me to my final point.

As just stated, the People of this nation rose up from sea to shining sea – actually, everywhere in between, for the most part (at least 83% of counties nationwide voted for Donald Trump) – and rejected the politically-correct and Biblically-bereft values of the Left that have dominated our lives for the past eight years.

The mantra of those whose ideas we have just rejected (as has always been the case in the past) is once again that we must “reach across the aisle” – in stark contrast to what they have done at the Executive level, at least, throughout the past eight years (via unabated, un-constitutional Executive Orders, right up to the end), and have always done when holding sway in either the Legislative  and/or Executive Branches – and we must not fall prey to this lie!

The vast majority of Americans – as evidenced by the legislative and gubernatorial victories of Republicans nationwide, in addition to the defeat of the decidedly un-Democratic Party in Washington, D.C. – have rejected the tenets of the Left, and those whom we have elected should govern according to our wishes.  That is what we hired – and will pay them to do! Yes, they represent all Americans, but to pretend that they should govern according to the wishes of those who voted against them is both absurd and irrational. It is, of course, what the defeated now demand that they do…but they must not!

I will conclude with this:  If this election represents anything, it is the rejection of the national news media by the American public.  They openly and shamelessly promoted (in a coordinated effort, as revealed and documented by Julian Assange and Wikileaks)  – and continue to do so long after the election (up to the time of this writing) – the Clinton Campaign and its multi-billion dollar money-laundering Foundation.  The direct complicity between the once-vaunted “Fourth Branch” of government and the Democratic Party is the very definition of corruption…and it was, and still is, on open display to all who have “ears to hear, and eyes to see.”

While campaigning relentlessly to overturn the result of the election by fully supporting the conspiracy theory (which they love to accuse all who oppose them of) that Vladimir Putin “hacked” and thereby determined the outcome of the election – while fully ignoring the actual diabolical revelations contained in the leaked emails themselves (very likely from murdered Democratic operative Seth Rich, but also from others within our own government according to Julian Assange and others) – the national media is not acting out of mere bias. They are visibly acting at the behest of the Ruling Class, in direct opposition to the will of the American People.

The bottom line on how we should all respond is this: We must fully grasp that the Establishment Press has in this election (for any who had not already seen it) been fully discredited. They will not, however, go away.  Foes of freedom, such as George Soros, have deep pockets, and their patently anti-American views are not going to suddenly change – no matter the words or other props they will use to cleverly and cunningly dress them up – just as both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, instructed. (Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist and first Obama “Green Czar”-turned-CNN-“commentator,” is the same unrepentant radical, no matter the cut of his suit or the glint of his silk tie.)

Since the true identity of the Socialist/Democratic Party is clear to most freedom-loving Americans, we must not concern ourselves with what they think, say, or do.  The only way they will cease their fanatical quest to destroy our new President (and the positions and values on which he campaigned), is if he (or we) acquiesce, and give up on the very things that he (and we) just won by defending.  That is it.  They will continue to decry every action he takes to deliver on what he promised, and the Establishment Press will continue to lead the charge – although they will find that he will not suffer fools lightly! (As a telling sidelight, Google seems to have also gotten in on the act of discrediting the President-Elect, as it was not until the fourth page of search results that I found a favorable review of his just-cited first Press Conference since the election.)

It is likely that he will continue to bypass the press via social media, by speaking directly to the American People.  I believe that will be the case.  Nonetheless, the Obsolete Establishment Media (the OEM, not the absurdly-designated MSM) will continue its relentless attacks. They, however, are the minority.  They do not speak for the People of this country.  They haven’t for most – if not all – of our lifetimes, and that will not change (although Fox News seems to have learned its lesson of late – replacing self-appointed-Trump-nemesis Megan Kelly with rising-star Tucker Carlson).  We should not read or watch them, or worse, pay for – and thereby support – any of their instruments of misinformation; and we do not need to read or watch in order to know what the “other side” is doing. (They will be doing what they have always done: campaign for the Left.)

Our reliable-for-the-most-part Internet sources – Breitbart, Worldnet Daily, Drudge, Western Journalism, Canada Free Press, the &Email, Before It’s News, Family Security Matters, Zero Hedge, the American Thinker, and a host of others unnamed – along with the familiar talk-show hosts – Hannity, Savage, Gallagher, Prager, Ingram, Alex Jones, Rush for the most part, et al. (sadly, Glenn Beck, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, and Mark Levine were such rabid opponents of Donald Trump that they have lost all credibility with many of us) – will continue to let us know what the discredited might have to say…but what difference does it make? (Sorry!)

We can now disseminate the truth via Social Media, and in our day-to-day conversations; and we must not let the lies of the Left deter us from doing so. That is what they and all totalitarian regimes do. They suppress both thought and speech. Only by keeping the truth from the People can their lies flourish.  Donald Trump won by daring to speak the truth – something Republicans have feared to do for generations; and we must continue to do the same; but we need to fully grasp that what we do and say on Social Media – even if a particular comment or post may not be picked up by millions or even thousands – demonstrates what the American People are thinking nationwide, and countless others pick up on and share our thoughts and our ideas.

Finally – as I like to remind anyone who might read my words – while we can’t control what anyone else says or does, we can control what we do and say; and that is all that any of us can be expected to do. If we continue to speak out, the truth will continue to be heard across this great land…and that will keep us both safe and free!

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society helped organize ‘pink pussy hat’ protest in D.C.

Did they use any of your tax dollars?

They have no idea how many Americans find this disgusting and shameful. It is only made worse to know that some of our money could be used for this type of community organizing.

Donald Trump should be told that more than half of  the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society’s funding comes from taxpayer dollars ostensibly to resettle refugees.

sarah-beller

Sarah Beller Community Engagement Director, Greater Washington D.C.

In a recent financial statement they reported that they received approximately $20 million of your money! (See their big salaries!)

Maybe Congress should pass a law that if your NON-PROFIT organization receives federal grants and contracts it should not then be permitted to protest the government (the hand that feeds them!).

Here is HIAS’s community organizer, Sarah Beller, giving instructions about where HIAS would be protesting the new President:

As inauguration weekend is fast-approaching, we wanted to send you some final updates, including a revised meet-up location for joining HIAS at the Women’s March on Washington. It’s more important than ever to lift up our voices on behalf of refugees and other vulnerable communities, and we look forward to gathering this weekend to do just that!

Certainly all citizens have free speech rights, but this sort of ‘event’ should never have been a sanctioned project of a refugee resettlement contractor.

If they want to be free to protest and bring in refugees, let them raise private money to do it!

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of the nine major contractors resettling third worlders in your towns and cities. We wrote about them here recently in Philadelphia.

Our complete archive on the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (they prefer to call themselves HIAS, Inc) can be found by clicking here.

Democrats are committing suicide by joining Lewis boycott

Democrats joining the puerile food fight Rep. John Lewis started with the President-Elect may soon live to regret it.

Donald Trump has promised a vigorous legislative agenda for his first one-hundred days, and has the majorities in Congress to make good on that promise. Democrats who continue to whine and pout, calling him “illegitimate,” may soon find themselves on the wrong side of history.

Here’s what is likely to occur between now and mid-April:

  • President Trump will reverse hundreds of Obama’s executive orders, shredding big portions of the former President’s “legacy.”
  • Republicans will pass the Obamacare repeal and replace measure.
  • Republicans will pass a tax reform package that includes middle class tax cuts and a significant reduction of the corporate income tax.
  • Republicans will fund the border wall, and President Trump will start to open bids from contractors.

Democrats joining the puerile food fight Rep. John Lewis started with the President-Elect may soon live to regret it.

If Congress does nothing beyond this in the next two years, the economy will grow, jobs will return to the rust belt states, and Democrats will suffer a “shellacking” in the mid-term elections.

And if Donald Trump succeeds in building the border wall (and yes, Mexico will ultimately pay for it through a remittance tax, tariffs, or other measures), he will be re-elected in 2020 with big numbers.

As Mike Huckabee said on Fox Business on Tuesday, Democrats are “never going to be happy his election” because of their “personal animosity,” and that is a huge mistake. Why? Because as the new President succeeds with his policies, American voters will have little patience with such critics.

I’m not suggesting that Rep. Lewis is about to lose re-election, given that he represents “one of the most consistently Democratic districts in the nation.”

But some of the Democrats who have decided to join him in boycotting Friday’s inauguration could find themselves facing primary opponents. Among the most vulnerable in this regard is newly-elected Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md).

After his disastrous failure in the Obamacare roll-out as Lieutenant Governor, Brown lost his bid to become Governor in 2014 in heavily-Democrat Maryland. How could that happen? Because members of his own party turned against him and voted for the Republican or just stayed home.

I witnessed Mr. Brown’s unpopularity when black Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar and I won the endorsement in the 2014 primary of a pre-eminent black pastors and business association in Prince Georges County. (I was Lollar’s running mate).

I asked the leaders of this group why they were endorsing a Republican ticket over Mr. Brown, and they responded almost unanimously: because Anthony Brown had arrogantly ignored them over the previous eight years as Lieutenant Governor. He was out of touch and took them for granted.

Those same black leaders are going to benefit from lower tax rates, as well as from the reduction in the number of illegal aliens with their drain on public school and public health resources. They are not going to take kindly to politicians who tell them these benefits are somehow “illegitimate,” because they have a personal beef with the President who brought them about.

Under Obama, Democrats lost more than 1,000 seats in Congress and in state legislatures because of his unpopular policies. For Democrats to continue opposing President Trump when he enacts popular policies is a strong indicator they have suicidal tendencies.

If these suicidal Democrats don’t seek treatment, the people will dish it out to them at the ballot box.

They face the same choice Bill Clinton faced after the 1994 midterms: embrace success, or go down as a failure.

Three weeks before last November’s election, Rep. Lewis tweeted out a quote from “Walking with the Wind,” his memoire of the civil rights movement. “We are one people, one family, one house – the American house. We must learn to live together as brother & sister or we will perish as fools.”

Those are wise and humble words. Rep. Lewis and his fellow boycotters would do well to heed them.

Goodbye Barack!

The Democrat Party is no longer in control in Washington, D.C. President Trump has taken over and will now steer the ship-of-state.

Barack is now taking on “the more important title of citizen.” Perhaps we should look at what former President Obama said about citizenship. We can learn from a 2014 publication on the White House website titled “The Most Important Title is ‘Citizen'”: President Obama on the Significance of a Civil Society“. The title comes from Obama’s speech to the now defunct Clinton Global Initiative in New York, New York.

Obama explained how “the voice of one citizen can remind us why a civil society is so essential.”

Obama stated:

Citizens remind us why civil society is so essential. When people are free to speak their minds and hold their leaders accountable, governments are more responsive and more effective. When entrepreneurs are free to create and develop new ideas, then economies are more innovative, and attract more trade and investment, and ultimately become more prosperous.

This sounds Trumpesque, doesn’t it?

Free to speak their minds is the antithesis of political correctness, something President Trump has said he “has no time for.” Holding leaders accountable is what happened on November 8th, 2016 when the people elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and gave Republicans control of both houses of Congress. Freeing entrepreneurs sounds like make America great, again and made in America again. Attracting more trade and investment in America is pure Trump. What’s missing is keeping investment and jobs here in America, something the former President failed at.

Question: Is society civil today?

Democrat members of Congress decided to boycott the inauguration of President Donald John Trump, led by Representative John Lewis (D-GA). Are these elected officials contributing to a civil society? There are protesters who plan to keep protesting so long as President Trump is in office. Here are photos of some of these protesters:

TrumpProtests-400x267

code pink jeff sessions

anti-trump protesters

Do these protesters contribute to a civil society? Are they the solution or the problem to maintaining a “civil society”, which is “essential.” Who created this outpouring of incivility?

Here is a Project Veritas video of a black woman wearing a Trump t-shirt walking on the streets of New York city, the same place former President Obama gave his “civil society” speech, after the 2016 election:

The black woman is called “dumb”, “ignorant”, told “you suck he [Trump] got elected”, she was threatened to “take that [Trump t-shirt] off” and called a “Nazi.” Are these the actions of people from a civil society?

We are entering a new era where civility and a civil society is weakened after having a black Democrat in the White House for the past eight years.

We hope and pray that President Trump will reunite the nation and bring civility and civil discourse back to the public square. We hope that former President Obama will live by his own words to be a citizen promoting a civil society.

What is most important now is President Trump must fix the problems facing our nation, among them the lack of incivility. President Trump has committed himself and his administration to be a uniter and to represent all of the people.

It is better for Americans to fix our problems rather than to fix blame.

My Final Interview and Private Conversation with President Obama by Larry Levine

Free at last. Free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last.

I pulled up to the White House, which was being decorated for the inauguration for the incoming president. Moving trucks were to the side, loading things up.

At the door I met the president, who said that he had fewer trucks than the Clintons because he was taking only his own furniture.

We entered the front door and I asked him where the nearest restroom was (yup that happens). When I went into the restroom, I noticed that I was stuck to the seat. Hey, Mr. President, what is this? Oh, sorry Larry, we were practicing pranks and more roadblocks for the Trumps. Did you like the new orange light bulbs that we installed?

Many people were walking around in the whirlwind of the last days of the Obama presidency. I actually thought that I saw a guest Syrian refugee family packing up, as well as Chelsea Manning asking which restroom he/she could use.

Valerie Jarrett greeted me and said, “We have been watching you, Levine, with great interest.” Levine, we have a coupon for a free room at the same resort that Scalia stayed in, interested?  Ah, no, thanks.

We sat down for the interview in the Lincoln bedroom, which unbeknownst to the public made into a man cave with dozens of big screens on the wall. One half of the screens had all the current games on including soccer games from Kenya, and the other half had videos of the presidential basketball games, complete with repeating highlights and slow mo,  of when the President scored .

So Mr. President, it has been some time since we have spoken, a lot has happened since you came into office. Would you care to speak about what you accomplished?

Sure Larry, oh, er, (clearing throat) coughing, twitching, fidgeting …. OK, what’s your next question?

Mr. President, you have been at war every day since you entered office and that doesn’t include your war against Fox News and the Republicans.  Have you received any correspondence from the Nobel Peace Prize committee asking you to return it?

No, and I am not leaving a forwarding address.

Mr. President, looking back on the last eight years, it seems like most of your accomplishments were by executive order ,so you didn’t have to work with Congress. Now that Mr. Trump is going to take offic,e aren’t you concerned that the first day they will all be wiped out? I mean, you watched The Ten Commandments now, didn’t you (which, by the way, were also by executive order of a sort ) ? Remember that part where Pharaoh says that the name Moses shall be stricken from the door posts, books, etc. in Egypt?

Well, Larry, I have no concerns about that because we are not in Egypt.

OK, Mr. President, but aren’t you at least a bit concerned that everything you did in the past eight years will be reversed in the first few hours of Mr. Trump’s presidency?

Not really, I am not leaving this town, so I will be on my favorite news channels every night saying that Trump is not a legitimate president. So no worries here.

Your very first speech was about the Middle East, when you visited Egypt. It has been eight years and you are still talking about the same issues with Israel. Is it true that you didn’t get along with Bibi Netanyahu? Or let me put it a different way, you hated his guts, threw up at the sound of his name, got stomach cramps and had to leave the building and had grand mal seizures after having sat next to him during news conferences?

No comment on that. Remember, Larry, I was called the First Jewish President by the New York Magazine.

So here is a sort of a trick question for you, Mr. President.  Which pension will be larger when you retire, the Kenyan or the American?

When you leave office, will you be driving yourself or do you have a chauffeur? The reason that I am asking is that there is some concern that you don’t know the difference between a red light (red line), a yellow light (that means calling Valerie for help) and a green light, which means, oh the hell with it, I will just do it with an executive order.

No comment.

With the recent rancor involving Putin of Russia, Hillary Clinton and Trump, can you now finally admit that the reset button was indeed out of order?

Wise guy …

OK, Levine, now it is my turn. I have heard just about enough from you the past eight years. You have criticized me, called me a liar, anti-Israel, incompetent, a race baiter, an egotist. You even wrote that I was so vain that you (me) probably think that this column is about (me) you. Am I correct?

Yes.

Oh, er, okay, well, you almost stepped over my red line, or was that yellow or green, not sure, but you almost stepped in it, Levine. What do you have to say about this?

Mr. President, here is what I can say. In a day or so our country will be…

Free at last. Free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last.

Other than that, take care and enjoy your long, restful, far away – real far away, preferably Hawaii or farther away – retirement.

Please note that this is officially fake, fictitious news. I can also promise you that at no time were there any animals hurt in the writing of this missive. At least none that I know of.

About Larry Levine

Originally from Long Island, New York, Larry Levine lives in Columbus Ohio. He is an award-winning businessman/pro-Israel activist, writer. Also a standup comedian and talk show host whose guests included Jay Leno, Alexander Haig and Paul Reiser.

black history month

Black History [a.k.a. Demonize White America] Month

As a black conservative Republican, I have been called a traitor to my race. All my life, blacks have maligned me for not relating to fellow human beings through an invisible divisive wall of race. I deal with people as individuals. Good and bad people come in all colors.

Here we are folks, another Black History Month. How awesomely inspiring it would be if powerful black voices in media, education and politics used the occasion to celebrate blacks who achieved success via self-reliance, education, hard work and right choices?

Sadly, every Black History Month, Leftists rip the scab off of old racial wounds. Their goal is to anger black youths rather than inspiring them to follow extraordinary blacks’ paths to excellence. Leftists want blacks to forever view themselves as victims of white racist America where cops murder them at will. The truth is America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet. Unfortunately, far too many blacks have been duped into believing that remaining loyal democrat voters is the only way to keep racist white America at bay.

Ponder this folks. It is a hot sunny day in 1958. You’re driving on a two lane dusty highway in rural Georgia. To your right, you see a dirty barefoot 10 year old black kid working in a field of collard greens. Never in your wildest dreams could you imagine that black kid would become one of the most powerful men in the world; Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice of the United States. That’s the greatness of America folks. That’s America.

Clarence’s upbringing was humble. His home had a corrugated tin roof, wooden siding caulked with flour and water. Newspapers were used for insulation and wallpaper; a dirt floor; no electricity or indoor plumbing. Kerosene lamps lit his home. His family used the neighborhood outhouse.

Clarence’s dad impregnated his mom with a third child and another woman in town at the same time. He skipped town, wanting nothing to do with his children. Unable to provide for her three kids, Clarence’s mom sent Clarence and his brother to live with their grandparents, Myers and Christine Anderson.

As a child, Myers worked in the fields and attended school through the third grade. Absent of racist attitudes against blacks, nuns at the local St. Benedict Church taught young Myers to read. Myers built a thriving fuel oil and ice business.

Myers believed in discipline, a strict schedule, focusing on education and limited idle time. Myers’ philosophy was “work, education and faith.” Though financially challenged, Myers pulled Clarence and his brother out of public school. He enrolled the boys in the local St. Benedict school. The nuns demanded order and academic excellence.

Myers enforced near perfect attendance and intense study habits. When school was out, Myers kept his grandsons busy working on farms and in his business. After fulfilling their assignments, the boys could enjoy their free time which Clarence spent at the library

Notice the glaring absence of the narrative Leftists teach blacks today that white America or the world owes them something. Myers instilled the importance of education and self-reliance in his grandsons. He instructed Clarence, “never let the sun catch you in bed.”

Clarence Thomas describes Myers, his grandfather, as “the greatest man I have ever known.” Where are such strong, wise, character-driven and masculine mentors for black males today?

The number-one mission of high profile blacks (actors, politicians and preachers) appears to be getting blacks to embrace same-sex marriage, men using little girl’s restrooms and blaming white America. Myers’ Godly principles and values are only echos of a distant past in the black community today.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ rise from nothing is an extraordinary American tale. The NAACP and so-called civil rights community should hold Justice Thomas up high as a shining example to black youths of what can be achieved via education, hard work, right choices and self-reliance. Remarkably, Justice Thomas is despised by the NAACP and fellow Leftists for exposing the benefits of embracing Myers’ tried and true virtues.

Renown black retired neurosurgeon Dr Ben Carson and black businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain are hated by the NAACP for the same reasons. They do not not view themselves as victims nor do they hate whites and America. Both Carson and Cain love their country and tout the benefits of self-reliance, education and hard work.

Folks, my heart aches for the state of black America today; record high black on black murders, high black fatherless households, epidemic black school dropouts, disproportionate high black abortions, high black unemployment and high black incarcerations, all after 8 years of the first black president.

Blacks are thriving in practically every arena of American life. And yet, Leftists’ continuous “bigotry of lower expectations” tells blacks they are inferior. Leftists insultingly insist that blacks cannot compete unless academic and moral standards are lowered. They offer blacks garbage TV shows like celebrating a black rapper who impregnated 11 women. Democrats claim blacks are too stupid to acquire a photo ID to vote. Leftists ignore the epidemic of blacks murdering each other and brand any compassionate white who dares address the problem a racist.

Every Black History Month, Leftists ignore inspirational self-reliant black achievers while making heroes/icons of thug criminals like Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and Freddie Gray. Myers, Clarence Thomas’ granddad, would be appalled.

Desperate Democrats Play the ‘Illegitimate Card’

“The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all I’ve got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.” ― Johnny Cash

There is a growing movement in the radical anarchist Alt-Left to define the Presidency of Donald J. Trump before it begins. They have tried various ways to stop President-elect Trump in the primaries and during the general election. They called him racist, a misogynist, Homophobic, Islamophobic and many other pejoratives. Trump won the primary and is now the President-elect.

January 20th is fast approaching and Democrats and the Alt-Left are now in full panic mode.

One would believe that after Democrats blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on FBI Director Comey, then Russian hacking, followed the failed recount of Independent candidate Jill Stein and recently BuzzFeed’s fake news pushed by the CIA, you would think they have run out of steam. Not true.

The new tactic is to play the “illegitimate” card.

This Alt-Left narrative, now being pushed by the Fakestream media, is that President-elect Trump must not take the oath of office highlighted by a tweet from Rosie O’Donnell to have President Obama declare martial law and delay the inauguration “until Trump is ‘cleared’ of all charges.” Which begs the question, what charges, exactly? Of course, the charge that he is illegitimate.

rosiemartiallaw

alt left protesters

Alt-Left protesters.

Now we have, led by Democrat Representative John Lewis, over 40 Democrats boycotting the inauguration. But for what purpose? What can they gain by boycotting the inauguration? Do they believe this will help make America great again?

It was Lewis to gave the Alt-Left credibility by stating that he did not believe Trump was “legitimate President” as Lewis did not believe George W. Bush was a “legitimate President.” Lewis gives credibility to those who say Donald Trump is “not my president.” Is that what Martin Luther King, Jr. would have done? Is not Lewis fomenting hate, racial and political division? Is that what Dr. King did?

Now the Alt-Left has the backing of a black civil rights activist turned career politician to do whatever is necessary to delegitimize the Trump administration before it begins. Republicans control the White House, both houses of the U.S. Congress and the majority of state legislatures and governorships. During the campaign Hillary Clinton tweeted this:

clinton accept results of election against democracy

It is now Democrats, and the Alt-Left, who have publicly stated that they refuse to “respect the results of this election.” They, therefore, are “a direct threat to our democracy.”

Watch The Geller Report video of New Yorkers saying they prefer “Martial Law” over a Trump presidency:

The fringe is become unhinged as President-elect Trump and VP-elect Pence are closer to making good on the pledge to “drain the swamp.” The Alt-Left, Democrats, established Republicans and government bureaucrats fear losing power. Elected officials like John Lewis who marched with Pastor Martin Luther King, Jr. must turn to Him that His will might be worked in their lives. That is what MLK believed.

For you see as Johnny Cash understood there is a higher power, one that makes one more powerful than any government program. Empowering the people is the greatest fear of those in power. Those who label others for the sake of retaining or regaining power are illegitimate. They worship the false idols of government, a government that has betrayed the American people. Illegitimate is the new racism. Calls of Trump illegitimacy fall on deaf ears.

Trump is our President-elect. Time to join together, humble ourselves and seek reconciliation, for a nation divided cannot long stand.

An Execrable Coup –– An Exhilarating Counter-Coup

In 2009, America experienced a genuine coup d’état, exquisitely formulated and flawlessly executed after decades of planning by the socialists, communists, and jihadists among us who loathe America and have wished for nothing less than transforming our great country into a mecca of far-left, anti-American policies, punctuated by preposterous liberal constructs like political correctness and multiculturalism, and ultimately subservient to Sharia law.

As strange, indeed mind-bending, as this seems, remember that anything that is alien to American values and promises to undermine America’s passion for freedom and strength is considered a good thing and heartily embraced by the America-hating left. Hence, their fetish with Islam, a political system-cum-“religion” that is antithetical to every value that sane Americans hold dear.

As proof, the policies and laws enacted over the past eight years have consistently militated against America’s well-being. This is the proverbial drop in the bucket:

  • An eviscerated military and favor-the-enemy Rules of Engagement.
  • Porous borders over which tens of thousands of unvetted illegal aliens have swarmed, many of them violent criminals and, no doubt, stealth jihadists.
  • A Big Government mentality that encourages unemployment (95-million) and therefore dependency on government from cradle to grave.
  • Massive debt––currently pushing $20 trillion––which weakens our country’s ability to pay for essential needs like infrastructure, Medicare and Medicaid, et al., again with the goal of dependency on government.
  • A horrific healthcare system (Obamacare) that alienates doctors, punishes patients with sky-high premiums and inferior care, and simply doesn’t work–––hence its inevitable implosion (taking place right now).
  • The most dumbed-down educational system in American history––Common Core––that is based on the fantasy of fairness but in fact deprives every public-school student of even a minimally decent education and a chance to succeed…more government dependency.
  • Implanting operatives from terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood into every branch of our government, including (to name a few) the State Dept., the Pentagon, Homeland Security, the Attorney General’s office, the EPA, the FBI, the CIA, on and on and on––all of them intent on subverting the U.S. Constitution and replacing it with Sharia law, the animating force of Islam, which dictates not only that gays be executed and women who are raped be tried and convicted for infidelity, but that a failure to embrace Islam be punished with either a hefty tax or death.
  • A foreign policy that supports our enemies and spits in the faces of our most faithful allies, for instance Israel, England, Egypt, the list is long.
  • Handing over control of the Internet to the United Nations––the most corrupt, tin-pot-dictator-driven, anti-American, anti-Semitic, American-resource-draining cesspool in our country. If I had one piece of advice for President-Elect Trump, it would be to kick this rancid organization out of the United States! Nothing they’ve ever done has been good for our country. Talk about “draining the swamp”!

AGENT OF CHANGE––GIMME A BREAK!

Americans were both horrified and dumbfounded when the former community organizer, Barack Obama, turned out not to “transform” America for the better, but to be the figurehead––no one would accuse him of being a leader––who left our country in devastating debt, largely unemployed, perceived as the prototypical 97-pound weakling by our allies, and viewed by our own citizens as a lazy but golden-tongued puppet who preferred non-stop golfing vacations and entertaining rap stars and police-hating performers like Beyoncé in the White House to even a remote semblance of governing.

Even more horrifying was the depth and breadth and immense scope of this coup. It included, ala Karl Marx, a complete takeover of the media––the vehicle by which the American public imagines it knows what is going on. This takeover included non-stop false flags and a steady stream of fake news, which the public might never have known about save for Wikileaks.

Except for a very few outlets, the TV networks, radio stations, and newspapers all sang the same song. Why? Not only because the media has always leaned left, but because Mr. Obama had gotten complete control over the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and therefore could and did censor what he pleased, supporting those who danced to his radical tune and trying to marginalize those who didn’t.

But wait! Things got even worse. Hundreds and perhaps thousands of conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status to the Internal Revenue Service found that their petitions were routinely denied––not for weeks or months but years. When the career crooks in the IRS were exposed, they were magically allowed to resign with full back pay and pensions intact. Nice.

And then there were Mr. Obama’s, ahem, legacy items, according to editorial graphic artist Dixon Diaz:

  • Lowest economic growth in American history.
  • Record number of mass shootings.
  • Record number of terrorist attacks on American soil.
  • Record number of people on food stamps.
  • Record high health insurance costs.
  • Worst rioting since 1967.
  • Highest poverty level in American history.

Nice.

And that is not to omit the things blazed indelibly into the memory, for instance the disgraceful images of Mr. Obama defiling the Oval Office with his feet on the splendiferous Resolute desk, or the rank bullying he displayed in putting “the gun of government to the heads of the Little Sisters of the Poor, demanding that they either pay to destroy children in the womb or be crushed,” as described by Peter Heck in American Thinker.

THE SOROS FACTOR

To both casual observers and political junkies, it seemed all-too-obvious that the real brains behind this coup was the brilliant, megalomaniacal hedge-fund billionaire, Hungarian-born George Soros, who was probably responsible for appointing Iranian-born lawyer Valerie Jarrett as Barack Obama’s consigliere, effectively putting her in charge of the White House, the putative president, and their shared fetish of giving the arch-terrorist state, Iran, billions of dollars to develop nuclear weapons that will be aimed at the Great Satan, which the mullahs call the United States of America, and, as they promise every day, at the Little Satan, Israel. Nice.

I would not be surprised if Mr. Soros didn’t mandate Iranian-born Huma Abedin as Hillary Clinton’s consigliere because he knew of Abedin’s longtime affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, the prominent role both she and her parents played in that Nazi-inspired, anti-American organization with its stated goal of conquering what they consider vile democracies and converting them into Islamic-controlled states subservient to the caliphate they all dream about.

Why? Because Mr. Soros is a genius at orchestrating complex scenarios that are uniformly bad for America. A prolific author, he has written, among other tomes, The Bubble of American Supremacy. The many books that have been written about him further reveal his distaste for America, where he lives in spectacular splendor. Here is but a sample of book titles that describe his long-held mission:

But it is the way that Mr. Soros has used his vast wealth around the world that makes his support of the coup against America so plausible, as Wayne Madsen explains in a recent and fascinating article, Does George Soros Control the Obama White House? In short, Madsen concludes yes––Mr. Obama’s “moneybags” indeed controls the White House.

In short, Mr. Soros is a master at manipulating markets all over the world and, for the most part, avoiding criminal prosecution, although a French Court did indict him, saying that “his billion-dollar raids on national currencies and financial institutions were not based on peerless financial acumen, but on illegally acquired inside information.” Mr. Soros believes in the fairy-tale notion of one-world globalism, the better to eliminate the “unfair” disparity between the rich and the poor. What he considers a lofty goal involves destroying the most productive and generous nations on the face of the earth: America and Israel. Nice.

That is the tip of the Soros iceberg. From what is being reported, Mr. Soros has assembled a team of media people and politicians to fight the Trump presidency every step of the way. You can already see the flunkies in the U.S. Congress doing their best to sabotage President-elect Trump’s cabinet nominees with questions that are both loaded and hostile.

Yet, for the first time in his formidable dealings, it is clear that Mr. Soros has met his match in PE Trump. Oops, I take that back! Actually, Mr. Soros––his philosophy, his candidates, and his lust to take down America––has been decimated by Mr. Trump. Mr. Soros simply ran into a rich guy who was smarter than him!

That’s right, another billionaire who lives just a stone’s throw from Mr. Soros in New York City just happened to defeat not only the presidential candidate Mr. Soros backed for president––the amazingly unlovely and unqualified Hillary––but the entire Democrat Party, the classless Clintons, and the craven media into which he has poured multi-millions over the past several decades!

It’s no small thing, as the The Wall St. Journal reported the other day, that Mr. Soros lost nearly one-billion dollars after the Trump election, so sure was he that the nag he backed would win. “Mr. Soros was cautious about the market going into November and became more bearish immediately after Mr. Trump’s election, [but] the stance proved a mistake—the stock market rallied on expectations that Mr. Trump’s policies will boost corporate earnings and the overall economy.”

Think a measly billion doesn’t matter to Mr. Soros? Think again. Billionaires measure their billions the same way that ordinary men measure their shoe size!

C’MON TRAIN

There he was, business and media mogul extraordinaire––not a toy Lionel train car or a Pullman coach, but a massive self-propelled locomotive––who showed up at the presidential debates of 2015 and by May of 2016 had run over and decimated 16 opponents, all seasoned and professional politicians!

All of a sudden, both the politicians themselves and members of the media were forced to take Mr. Trump seriously. But they couldn’t help themselves; they were still the same supercilious, patronizing, bought-and-paid-for leftist lackeys who had been commenting all along on this runaway train. So they kept up their antagonistic drumbeat, confident that the sheer volume of their commentary and propaganda would be his undoing.

Aiding and abetting their mission were dozens of pollsters across the country whose skewed polls showed consistently that the chronically coughing, wobbling, decrepit-one-day/re-botoxed-the-next-day Hillary––the woman without a platform and lacking even a tiny dollop of charisma––was significantly ahead of the brash billionaire. Pundits on every network and cable news shows echoed these polls and predicted that the Electoral College votes, and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Ohio and of course California and New York, would definitely, positively, unmistakably insure a Hillary victory.

One thing none of them counted on was the tremendous sophistication of voters across the country––the same voters they’re still disparaging––who had been watching the devolution of our county for eight years and praying and waiting for at least one sane person to save our country from the malignant leftism in our body politic that Mr. Obama so relentlessly stoked.

They recognized in President-elect Trump the absolute answer to their prayers and proceeded to blanket our entire country in red, except for the few bastions of blue on the East and Left Coasts. Hence Hillary’s “popular vote” so-called victory, thanks to a voter-motor law cooked up by Gov. Jerry Brown and enacted into law in October 2015.

A report from Investors Business Daily says that: “According to the American Civil Liberties Union—which opposes the motor-voter law—California houses 3.3 million illegals, or a quarter of the nation’s total. So the stage is set not just for extending voting to illegals but for swinging national elections, too.”

Meanwhile, the Trump locomotive barreled on with the president-elect interviewing dozens of potential hirees at Trump Tower in NY City, at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, at his “winter White House” Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach Island, Florida, ultimately selecting those who will staff his cabinets and administration. The indefatigable Mr. Trump also embarked on an extensive thank-you tour to Ohio, New Hampshire, Mississippi, Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, et al, attracting the same huge “rock star” crowds that gave him his thunderous victory.

THE LEFT’S LAST GASP

I know it’s not objectively funny, but I can’t help actually laughing out loud when witnessing those thousands of badly-behaved three-year-olds soiling their diapers, banging their heads, and generally throwing non-stop temper tantrums since Election Day. They keep hurling things onto the tracks––right in front of President-elect Locomotive––because they still can’t absorb the fact that everything they’ve based their identities on, everything they believe, everything they hoped for, everything they’ve learned in school and on TV, everything they thought they accomplished––was utterly and totally destroyed by one man and millions of voters.

These children have tried everything:

  • Popping up at demonstrations, complete with shiny new placards, in front of Trump Tower.
  • Regurgitating stale and wildly inaccurate talking points, as happens five days a week from a woman named Whoopi and a joyless creature name Joy.
  • Devolving into an embarrassing freakout at a press conference, as did CNN’s Jim Acosta when the grown-up in the room didn’t call on him.
  • Contriving an evidence-free Russian hacking scandal to rationalize Hillary’s crashing loss. Why? So they could kick 35 Russian diplomats out of the U.S. and quickly invade their compounds to purge any records that might implicate Mr. Obama––not Mr. Trump––in subterfuge, not to omit the other desperate purging and shredding of records they’re engaged in at this very minute.
  • Stacking the hearings for PE Trump’s cabinet nominees with dense Democrats like New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and still-bitter Republicans like Florida’s Sen. Marco Rubio.
  • Calling on a famed actress to audition for the role of a snooty, finger-wagging scold and display her “selective empathy” at Hollywood’s Golden Globes Awards.
  • Trotting out a puerile pol like Georgia’s Rep. John Lewis to take a cheap potshot.
  • Inventing a sex scandal based on made-up gossip from the now thoroughly discredited BuzzFeed.
  • Preaching, as The New York Times did about what’s wrong with nepotism, when its entire conglomerate is based on nepotism.
  • Exposing, as writer Glenn Greenwald did, that [Obama’s] CIA and a complicit media are deeply involved in the stop-Trump juggernaut.
  • Threatening the most massive and disruptive demonstrations and riots during the upcoming inauguration.

This is all part of the same phenomenon, American-hating leftists gone mad. As one blogger commented: “I haven’t seen the Democrats so angry since Republicans took away their slaves!”

This is aberrant behavior which the Wall St. Journal’s Kimberly A. Strassel explains:

“The more that progressives have failed to win political arguments, the more they have turned to underhanded tactics to shut down their political opponents…Mr. Trump can expect plenty more of this to come. In winning the election, he blocked the left’s ability to use some of its favorite intimidation tactics. It no longer controls an accommodating federal bureaucracy. It no longer runs a Justice Department willing to threaten political opponents and turn a blind eye to liberal abuse. So the left will increasingly rely on campaigns of delegitimization…this is the best they’ve got.”

Again, the left’s vile behavior is not objectively funny. But as PE Trump systematically swats away these irritants like so many pesky gnats, I have to admit that I’m loving every minute!

In just a few days, I and the entire country (except for the loons on the left) will rejoice when watching Mr. Trump take the oath of office, making him the 45th President of the United States of America. Finally we will have a president who loves America and will fight like a hundred tigers to overturn and fix all the malevolent policies inflicted on our country over the past eight years.

What an exhilarating counter-coup!

‘First Hundred Days’ – President-Elect Trump Bypasses Accepted Tradition

By Wallace Bruschweiler and William Palumbo

Franklin Delano Roosevelt began an American tradition with his “First Hundred Days” of sweeping legislation, ushering in the New Deal and forever changing American politics and, more broadly, American life.

Let there be little doubt about it: President-Elect Donald J. Trump has forever altered this tradition, as he began practically governing the day after he was elected fair and square in an historic upset.

What has Trump accomplished as President-Elect?  The below list only includes the highlights of a truly remarkable (and exciting) transition period.

Jobs

  • This week, Amazon announced a plan to create 100,000 jobs over the next 18 months.
  • Jack Ma, CEO of Chinese tech giant Ali Baba, promised to create “one million” new jobs for American small businesses by making it easier for them to sell to the Chinese market.
  • Automakers Ford and Fiat-Chrysler have announced plans to invest and modernize plants domestically. Ford even cancelled projected plans for Mexican expansion in favor of U.S. investment.
  • Automaker Toyota announced plans to invest $10 billion over the next five years.
  • Apple has begun investigating options to build iPhones in the U.S.
  • The Japanese bank Softbank has pledged to invest $50 billion and create 50,000 new jobs.

Foreign Policy

  • During his campaign, Trump’s criticism of NATO’s outmoded mission caused a re-assessment and stated intent to focus more on terrorism.
  • Several key NATO allies are considering increasing their defense budgets, as a direct response to Trump’s criticism of their relatively, you might say illusory, financial contributions.
  • Already, the Trump administration has been invited to Syrian peace talks in Moscow. In December, the Obama administration was excluded from that summit.
  • Announced and made plans to move the American embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, period!; and told the Palestinian authorities that, by the way, Palestine does not exist for all practical purposes!

Note to Media: Here are your pre-Inauguration Lessons

From this spate of energizing news, there are a few key lessons not only for the American people, but especially for the dishonest, manipulative, and national embarrassment that we call the “media.”

  • First, the public’s reaction* to Trump’s actions since the election prove we fully reject Barack Hussein Obama and his anti-American agenda. Despite Trump’s modus operandi during the transition period which rivals – if not supersedes – the authority of a sitting president (and thus break with the tradition of “one president at a time”) the public continues to embrace the Trump agenda.  What more proof do you need that the people are ready to “turn the page” on the disgraceful and destructive Obama eight-year era?
  • Second, can we finally reject the specious smears that Donald J. Trump is “BS artist”? This discrediting sneer is repeated daily by leftist pundits.  Yet, an honest assessment of the above pre-office accomplishments concludes that Trump is acting exactly in line with long-held beliefs, as well as all his campaign promises.

Nothing would make the left happier than if Trump broke all his promises.  In fact, to their great chagrin, he has kept them – and aggressively.  In truth, the career politicians in both parties that Trump defeated are professional conmen and conwomen.  And that’s being polite.

  • Third, Trump’s populist movement depends on direct communication with the American people. Trump’s use of Twitter – his way of outmaneuvering the media – has enabled his success.  The leftist media is a machine of mass distortion and falsities.  Cutting out the “middleman” has always been and will continue to be a feature of the Trump phenomenon.

With so much work to be done to “Make America Great Again,” why waste time between the election and January 21st?  President-Election Donald J. Trump has not left us waiting for a change.  He already started it.  And that, we believe, will be the first chapter in his positive legacy over the next eight years as President.  History will be his witness.

* Their very public, uncouth, and strident objections notwithstanding, Hollywood actors and other bubbled elites are not representative of the sensible American public.

I haven’t seen the Democrats so angry since the Republicans took away their slaves

The title of this column came from a blog post sent to us by a reader. After reading it I realized that Democrats understand that President-elect Trump, Vice President-elect Pence, and the Republican majority in Congress for the second time in history will actually take away those who are slaves to Washington, D.C. Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” slogan embodies everything career politicians, Democrat and Republican alike, fear most.

They foresee their loss of power over the people weakened if not totally reversed once the PEOTUS is inaugurated on January 20th.

Democrats, and some Republicans, are so very, very angry. In an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press Congressman John Lewis (D-NY) stated, “I Don’t See Trump as a Legitimate President.”

President-elect Trump responded to Representative Lewis with this series of PEOTUS Tweets:

Perhaps these two maps will indicate, to Democrats and Republicans alike, the legitimacy of the election of a President Trump:

The Democratic Party has fundamentally changed under President Obama. The Democratic Party and Democrats, like good soldiers, followed him and his policies for eight years. By doing so they have paid the price over the last three election cycles. As I have written in my column “Rise of the Obamacrats“:

President Obama in his Chicago speech has given the Alt-Left free reign to do what it pleases unfettered by the U.S. Constitution and the rule-of-law. The Alt-Left, lead by Obama, is not beholding to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Rather the Alt-Left (the Obamacrat Party) can now do whatever it takes to overthrow our Constitutional Republic. For you see the ends justify the means.

It appears that citizen Obama will not go quietly into the night as have other presidents. President Eisenhower warned Americans about the military industrial complex. President Obama is warning Americans about the Obama political complex.

It is now official. The Democratic Party is now the Obamacrat Party – the party of Marx, Mao and Mohammed.

As Obamacrats plan to disrupt the the inauguration of President Trump on January 20th the nation and the American people will see just how angry the Alt-Left really is. Their hate, driven by a consuming fear of losing power, will escalate until they peter out in one last gasp of political suicide.
