It Doesn’t Matter Who Did or Did Not Own Slaves

By: Lloyd Marcus

Ill-educated Black Lives Matter protesters are on a rampage tearing down monuments of American heroes that they believe owned slaves or were complicit with slavery. Their rage is the consequence of allowing anti-American socialists and communists to dominate public education for decades. Students have been filled with lies and distortions about American history.

It is good that properly educated adults have taken to the airwaves in an attempt to reeducate the dumbed-down mobs regarding the truth about America and her heroes.

I am a proud and grateful American who happens to be black. And frankly, I do not care who did or did not own slaves. What difference does it make that our founding fathers and other heroes were not perfect their entire lives? Decent people learn, become more enlightened, and evolve throughout their lives. I cringe thinking about bad things I believed, said, and did in my youth. Should my entire life be canceled? The Bible speaks of repentance and redemption.

The bottom line is that the flawed human beings who founded America created something extraordinary and wonderful based upon biblical principles. Eventually, slaves were freed, a black man was elected president, and Oprah, a black woman, has earned $2.6 billion. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to pursue their dreams. Now, can we please move on? Leftists are hellbent on keeping us stuck in the ancient past.

It is absurd to pander to ignorant, pampered spoiled brats who demand that every extraordinary “white person” who founded and built our exceptional country be purged from history because they were not saintly enough to walk on water.

BLM protesters are like the group of religious and legal leaders in the Bible who brought Jesus a woman they caught in the act of adultery. The penalty for adultery was death by stoning. Jesus said to them, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Thinking of the skeletons in their closets, everyone in the group dropped their stone and walked away.

BLM protesters have hidden sin in their years on the planet. And yet, they dare cast stones at America’s remarkable and brilliant profiles in courage.

It is unfair to judge old TV shows, books, movies, and etc. by today’s racial standards and sensitivities. One must remember the times. Stupidly, BLM protesters want to ban and burn all evidence of the extraordinary progress we have made regarding race relations.

BLM wants to ban the classic movie, Gone With the Wind. Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress to win an Oscar for her performance in that film. It is obscene to cancel the work of black show-business pioneers like Hattie McDaniel, Stepin Fetchit, Amos and Andy, and others.

Stepin Fetchit was the first black actor to have a successful film career. In my youth, I was embarrassed by Stepin Fetchit’s racial-stereotype performances. I came to realize that pioneers like Mr. Fetchit paved the way for black entertainers to boldly strut their stuff today.

Nancy Green, the model for “Aunt Jemima’s Pancake Flour,” was an extraordinary woman. Miss Green was also a storyteller, cook, and activist. She became the advertising world’s first living trademark.

Black pioneers should be celebrated and held up as role models rather than having their legacy stricken from history by arrogant clueless faux advocates for black empowerment. It took tremendous willpower, courage, and commitment to achieve success in the face of real racial injustice and discrimination. Successful black trailblazers and the good white folks who fought to open doors of opportunity for them confirm the greatness of America.

Alexis de Tocqueville said he sought to discover the greatness and genius of America. He concluded that “America is great because America is good…” I say, “Amen brother.”

Throughout American history, there were decent whites who risked it all to liberate blacks. BLM and their fake news media partners want blacks to believe white America is obsessed with scheming 24/7, concocting new ways to suppress and murder them. Insidiously, they want blacks to believe that in order to keep eternally racist white America at bay they must remain loyal to voting for Democrats.

Not only do leftists never celebrate self-empowered and disciplined black achievers… they also despise and campaign to destroy them. Insultingly, fake news media has a history of manipulating blacks into embracing thugs and career criminals as heroic icons; Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin to name a few.

I challenge BLM to explain how destroying monuments and banning U.S. history will stop blacks from murdering each other in record numbers every weekend in Democrat-run cities?

How does BLM wreaking havoc stop black mothers from engaging in self-induced genocide via abortion? Why does BLM’s Democrat Massas insist on keeping urban students in failing violent public schools in which most graduates cannot read their diploma? Why does BLM believe black lives only matter when they are harmed by a white person?

Black Africans kidnapped and enslaved fellow blacks whom they sold to traders who brought them to America. Slavery is alive and well in Africa today. And yet, BLM protesters purposely ignore this truth, gifting black slave-owners with “clean hands.”

David Horowitz made the excellent point that America did not invent slavery, America ended it.

Leftists are hellbent on instilling the lie in this country’s blacks that we are not a part of the American experience; that we are somehow forever victims in a strange land which is not our home.

I feel no longing for Africa. My homeland is Baltimore, Maryland where I grew up enjoying Cal Ripken Jr., the Orioles, and the best crab-cakes on the planet. I could not care less who did or did not own slaves a gazillion years ago.

Barack Hussein Obama Is Running for a Third Term

By: Cliff Kincaid

President Trump’s Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore was a good first step, but he must now identify the enemy by name – Communist China. We are at war. The China virus has been followed by riots instigated by pro-Chinese groups in our major cities. Meanwhile, China has taken Hong Kong, and its sights are set on the United States. We could drop into their hands like overripe fruit. Those are the stakes.

Let’s don’t be confused by disinformation in the New York Times and the Washington Post about Trump’s “dark” and “divisive” speech. He didn’t start this war. He is playing defense. The media want him to surrender to the revolutionary mob.

Candidate Joe Biden, a shell of a man with no coherent ideas of his own, is the vessel for our domestic enemies with foreign ties to take control of the federal government and reduce the once-great United States to warring factions unable to stop Red China’s worldwide advance. Biden is promising peace and harmony but he is only a frontman for the same forces behind Barack Hussein Obama’s movement for the “fundamental transformation” of America. Obama visited with Chinese President Xi after he left office, in a meeting of “veteran cadres,” or communist officials, discussing current events. “Xi made a positive appraisal of Obama’s efforts in promoting China-U.S. relations during his presidency,” said the Chinse press.

That was ominous, but our media showed no interest. Yet this helps explain why Trump’s anti-China policies were a trigger, not only for the Russia-gate hoax but coronavirus and the protests and riots.

One thing is clear: Obama and his people are calling the shots, literally, behind the Biden for President campaign.  He wants a third term in office, and he may get it, using Biden as his frontman. He will then reinstate his China-friendly policies.

Why, President Trump has to ask, did U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seize a shipment from China that contained over 10,000 assault weapons parts being smuggled into the country? The parts were seized at Express Consignment Operations hub in Louisville, Kentucky, in a parcel described as containing 100 Steel Pin Samples. On a separate occasion, more than 5,000 counterfeit driver’s licenses and 2,909 counterfeit IDs were seized there. They also came from China and were headed to New York.

All of this looks like China is outfitting a communist insurgency on American soil. The Red Chinese are already killing our people through exports of fentanyl.

Looking at their political operations, Trump said, “One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.”

Strangely, some Senate Republicans have joined the ranks of the opposition, with Senator Mike Braun endorsing handcuffing the police through frivolous left-wing lawsuits. As Trump said, we must support the police, not weaken them in the face of the communist advance.

Trump said, “The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice, but in truth, it would demolish both justice and society. It would transform justice into an instrument of division and vengeance and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination, and exclusion. They want to silence us, but we will not be silenced.”

That “radical ideology” is communism.

“In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms,” Trump said, “there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.” But it is happening, as the election quickly approaches.

Using the term “far-left fascism” to refer to the self-proclaimed anti-fascists is a smart technique rhetorically on Trump’s part. In fact, however, fascism lies on the same side of the political spectrum as communism, and we saw how a fascist-communist alliance sparked World War II before these two totalitarian ideologies turned on each other, and America went to war to save Europe. The “Refuse Fascism” group, active in a dozen American cities, is actually a front of the Maoist Revolutionary Communist Party.

Political censorship and communist-style mind control are being exercised through academia and the media and much of it is financed by corporate America. This trend is commonly called political correctness and “cancel culture.” In truth, this is Cultural Marxism, an actual movement determined to “make America stink,” with roots in communist thinking.

On an important level, America’s cities are threatened by these communists in the streets who can’t be stopped with ten-year jail terms for toppling statues. They will probably be sprung from jail by left-wing lawyers anyway and given reduced sentences by liberal judges. But our FBI and CIA can expose their ties to Beijing. That would give our law enforcement authorities more legal weapons in order to close these demonstrations down. These are foreign agents, at the very least, and some may be operating at the direction of the Chinese Communist Party.

Analyst Trevor Loudon has done a very good job of analyzing this problem in his latest piece, “‘People’s War:’ Pro-China Communists Claim Credit For ‘Sparking’ US Riots.” He names the names and identifies their foreign connections. He explains, “Developed by Chairman Mao, the ‘people’s war’ was a strategy whereby Maoist insurgents could use attrition and unconventional warfare to defeat much more powerful conventional armies.”

FBI Director Christopher Wray recently said, “…we are looking carefully at the prospect of foreign influence or foreign interference in all the protest activities (that’s) occurred over the last few weeks.” If they really don’t have that data, let them call Trevor Loudon and consult his KeyWiki online encyclopedia on the left.

If the CIA can’t document the connections of these groups to China, fire the CIA bureaucrat running the agency, Gina Haspel. Trump’s new Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, must clean house at the CIA and come clean on what China is doing, politically and through the provision of weapons.

On Independence Day, we are being greeted with cries of “Happy 4th of July.” But despite the fireworks, it’s not a happy day. Republican Senators James Lankford and Ron Johnson proposed that Columbus Day be replaced by a new federal holiday of Juneteenth. (They have since backed away from this proposal.)  Such a move promises more division, with blacks having their own Independence Day and whites keeping the traditional July 4th. The revolutionary mobs, of course, will not be satisfied, as demands for trillions of dollars in “reparations” will be advanced. A white backlash seems inevitable. That’s why responsible leaders must step forward now before more damage is done and the situation is irreversible.

Is it too much to ask that “conservative” Senators act to conserve the nation?

Trump stands virtually alone, seemingly unsure of how to proceed, as the enemies of America assemble an arsenal, as we saw in the confiscation of weapons parts in Louisville, that actually includes armaments. These are dangerous times.

Attorney General William Bar, in an interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox, discussed in detail how the Chinese are targeting our high-tech industries and stealing technology. He talks about restoring law and order, but is he truly unaware of Chinese political connections to subversive groups behind the riots?

Trump needs our backing, but he must get the people in place who understand and want to defeat the enemy. For his part, Trump has to overhaul his campaign and start identifying the enemy by name. We deserve the truth.

Prairie Fires and Progressive Liars

By: Thomas Wigand | New Zeal

Preface: It is strongly recommended that you click-through to the links, as doing so will provide invaluable context.

This month marks the 46th anniversary of The Weather Underground’s issuance of its manifesto for a Marxist revolution, Prairie Fire – The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism (July 1974).

This month also marks the 244th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence — the source document of our founding (July 4, 1776 – now celebrated as Independence Day).

The aspirations underlying the two documents are now locked in existential battle, one in which there can be no compromise – only one of those visions for America can and will prevail.  Which will it be?

One might be inclined to dismiss Prairie Fire as an obscure footnote in history.  But as we’ll see, it never went away, and is being executed “as we speak.” Its authors and allies followed Saul Alinsky’s advice: instead of setting bombs and marching in the streets, they burrowed into the American system in order to erode it from within, and so set the stage for revolution through subterfuge and cultural sabotage.

They’ve largely succeeded; they now feel confident enough to reemerge, albeit under cover of “social justice” and “sustainability” and “Black Lives Matter” and such.  The Left fully intends to consummate its revolutionary designs for America, and upon Americans.

This is not a drill.  These comrades of the Left – the Democrats, the Democrat Socialists, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and Antifa – Progressives all – are in the process of executing a Marxist-Collectivist revolution.  They are counting on the American public focusing on the above-named slogans and events occurring under those banners, and in doing so as to not realizing what’s actually taking place.

It is perhaps ironic that the latest eruption of Leftist violence began in the prairie lands, Minneapolis, MN.  The video of George Floyd was inarguably horrific, and those responsible should be held to account through our justice system. And will be.

That said, the appearance of “good cop” BLM and simultaneous “bad cop” Antifa and its pre-staged pallets of bricks (etc.) reeks of pre-planning awaiting the right opportunity to provide a pretense for its execution.  This explains how and why Antifa – fully bedecked in their Black Mass inspired getups – seemingly instantaneously appeared out of nowhere, simultaneously, in multiple cities.

To the public George Floyd has been portrayed as a martyr for “racial justice” or “social justice” – but in reality, has been used as a propaganda tool, a “big lie” – useful for advancing an entirely different agenda.

“Big lies” are a standard-issue weapon in the Leftist arsenal, typically launched with assertions that the lie’s stated problem is established fact, so as to preempt any examination of the trajectory they’ve set.  They’re proposed “solutions” then are enforced as the boundaries within which public discourse about “solutions” is allowed.

Deviation from such is fought by branding the heretics as “climate deniers” or “science deniers” or “racists” or similar epithets – often accompanied by enforcement through termination of employment so as to make an example and stifle the rise of other heretics.  In other words – totalitarianism – now collaboratively practiced by public and private sector entities. (Which, by the way, characteristic of a Fascist regime.  Yet another irony, insofar as the self-proclaimed anti-fascists are promoting just that.)

In recent years we’ve been subjected to “big lies” and (false) “established facts” of unprecedented scale and depravity:

Climate change” was (and still is) a “big lie.”  It has spawned “solutions” such as the U.N.’s Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030, and the Ocasio-Cortez “Green New Deal,” which don’t help the environment, but very much pave the way to Collectivist “global governance” and it’s inevitable totalitarianism;

“Russian collusion” manufactured from whole cloth, propagated by a complicit media –undertaking a de facto political coup in the United States as it sought to overturn an election and thus, overturn our Constitutional order;

COVID-19 and its shut-down of the global economy and restriction of movement.  While the existence of the virus is not a “big lie,” increasingly it appears that it was hijacked to foment a “big lie,” i.e., it’s supposed risk to the public.

Which brings us to the “big lie” du jour: “systemic racism” and its spawn, “White privilege.” (Or is it the other way around?  No matter.)

These too are characterized as “established fact” (i.e., the same type of misrepresentation as “the science is settled” shtick that has accompanied “climate change”).

Accompanying this “big lie” is their “1619 Project” and its Howard Zinn-like distortion of history, and the “big lie” of police targeting Blacks, and indeed de facto executing them as standard operating procedures. As you can see, there is true diversity and inclusion of lies within this particular “big lie.”

This “systemic racism” deserves examination, for not only is this a key component of the Prairie Fire playbook (as we’ll see), it’s the primary “big lie” being employed by the Progressive forces in furtherance of the revolution.  No coincidence, that.

Any sentient being who gives “systemic racism” just three minutes’ consideration cannot but conclude that it is a deliberate lie.  By its very title, the “1619 Project” acknowledges that slavery existed on this continent for over 150 years before our Declaration of Independence – you know, that aspirational document that unambiguously stated that as a founding principle of this country:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights …” 

The survival of this newly formed country was tenuous; there was a War of 1812 in which our capital was invaded and burned.  In the decades after – in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence and our Christian heritage – an abolitionist movement formed and worked at changing hearts and minds.

Ultimately, less than a century into our national existence, we fought a very bloody Civil War to end the scourge of slavery that predated our country.

Yes, there was still much to be done.  Since then we have had the righteous Martin Luther King, Jr., civil rights legislation, affirmative action for over a half-century … and a Black President, enough Blacks in Congress to have their own caucus, and entire cities in which the leading officeholders are Black.

What is “systemic” is the progress made thanks to our founding documents and the foundational principles that bless this nation!

Indeed, contrary to the “big lie” of “systemic racism,” to the extent we have systemic + racism today, it’s systemic reverse-racism.  Today’s “diversity and inclusion” is merely rebranded “affirmative action,” albeit expanded to incorporate everyone except Whites.

We have corporations openly declaring suchnot-so-openly practicing such, and an effort in California to eliminate even the pretense that this discrimination should be neither the law nor a practice tolerated; in other words, acting in the antithesis of our founding principles.

The only detriment to Blacks under this new form of systemic reverse racism is that other categories – other “minorities” and females and LGBT – have become squatters on the “addressing past racial injustice” bounty, so much of the benefits first intended to help Blacks are being siphoned-off.

At the same time, this “diversity and inclusion” has morphed far beyond classic “affirmative action” – from once confined to colleges and government and its contractors, to today with every major employer onboard – all openly discriminating against White males.

If we accept (solely for the sake of argument) that such “systemic racism” still exists, surely after we calculate-in the effect of “diversity and inclusion” (systemic reverse discrimination) we’d find that to the extent there’s anti-Black racism left at all, on a net basis it is of inconsequential impact.

Nevertheless, what we do have is continued inequality of outcome between Blacks and other groups.  Echoing their classic refrain of “capital” versus “labor,” another of the Leftists’ “big lies” conflates the cause of unequal outcomes to “systemic racism.”

Marxism advances its message as a morality play, typically with “big lies” as the script. Saul Alinsky in “Rules for Radicals” wrote that: “All effective actions require the passport of morality.”  Hence why Leftists love to invoke the word “justice” – “social justice,” “environmental justice” and so on.

With that thought in mind, if one took a “classic” Marxist screed and replaced the word “capitalist” with “White male,” and “bourgeoisie” with “White,” and “labor” with “Blacks” [or insert “women” or minority or LGBT label of choice], one would be hard-pressed to realize that it wasn’t written post-George Floyd – for “identity politics” is really not about “justice” (racial or otherwise), but instead, it is just repackaged Marxism.  (From his perch in Hell, Marx must be saying to himself: “I sure wish I’d thought of ‘identity politics!’”)

Globally, Whites are a minority.  In the United States, White males are a minority.  Yet under this “diversity Marxism” (a/k/a “identity politics”) Whites generally – and White males particularly – are caricatured as an oppressor majority with “privilege.”

Ponder this: White heterosexual males are the only category of human beings that don’t qualify for even a single “diversity” check-off box.

The Democrats, and the Left generally, have been peddling a race-based “big lie.”

Which brings us to Prairie Fire.  It was (and still is) intended as a manifesto for a revolution in this country (it reads as part screed and part diatribe).  But significantly, this now-vintage document laid out the groundwork for what we today call “identity politics.”  For example, it states:

  • “The Black struggle for self-determination is the strategic leading force of the U.S. revolution, forged from a centuries-long tradition of resistance and revolt in the face of counterattack by the club, the cattle prod, the gun and the lynch rope.”
  • “We believe that communist-minded organizers can take the initiative now and lead … Organize poor and working people.  Go to the neighborhoods, the schools, the social institutions, the workplaces.  Agitate.  Create struggle.”
  • “We believe that radical teachers should work in schools in working-class neighborhoods, in community or junior colleges. Radicalize other teachers …”
  • “Organize among the youth.  Organize among women.  Communists should play a big role in these movements, these popular upheavals which spawned us.  This is our strength.  Revolutionize existing projects and movements, analyze real situations, intervene with a revolutionary anti-imperialist perspective.”

The ultimate outcome sought by Prairie Fire is an unambiguously Marxist (Collectivist) “fundamental transformation” of the United States of America.  Regarding its authors, the New York Times in a story dated January 30, 1975, reported that:

The Weather Underground, the radicals who claim responsibility for yesterday’s bombing of the State Department and for planting a bomb in Oakland, Calif., started out as the Weathermen.

The organization was formed in the late nineteen‐sixties during protests against the Vietnam war. It was formed by; radicals who broke with the Students for a Democratic Society.

The name Weatherman comes from a Bob Dylan song, “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” which contains the words, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind’ blows.”

______________________

“They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.” – Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

The Weather Underground’s revolutionaries never really went away, nor repudiated their revolutionary goals.  They went underground in plain sight – temporarily abandoning the bombs, they embraced the Gramsci – Frankfurt School – Alinsky model.  That is to behave like political cancer eating away at our republic by eating away at its institutions and founding: our history, our Christian heritage, the nuclear family.  In other words,  advancing the intentionally corrosive force of Cultural Marxism.

But that’s just how evil rolls, isn’t it?

The most famous of the Weather Underground founders was Bill Ayers – not only mentor to Barack Obama but also a Professor of Education and one of the principal architects of the K-12 curriculum that has spawned, e.g., the Weather Underground’s de facto youth brigade, Antifa (more like Antifidiots) … and BLM.

For you see, what has been revealed in recent weeks is the ties between multiple other Weather Underground alumni and the current BLM leadership – as mentors in Marxist revolutionary tradecraft, and handling the BLM’s funding operation!

This explains why, when one views the BLM website, it reads much like Prairie Fire, albeit with an LGBT tinge about it.  Antifa and BLM and today’s Democrat Party are allied entities working at executing the Prairie Fire envisioned revolution.

This also explains why Democrat governors and mayors have not just created sanctuary jurisdictions for Antifidiots and BLM, but literally allowed them to run riot.

Back in the 1960s, the radicals were agitating against “the Establishment.”  Today they are the establishment. The current establishment comprises the Progressive movement and its subdivisions – the Democrat Party; the radicalized educational establishment; the complicit media; and useful idiot corporations that seemingly can’t throw money at BLM fast enough, and who fire employees who dare “speak truth to power.” (Recall how once-upon-a-time that slogan was employed by the Left when it didn’t perceive itself to be in power; now that it is that phrase has disappeared from their lexicon, only to be replaced by politically correct “speech Gestapo” empowered on college campuses, corporate offices, and social media.)

“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the Democrats’ wind blows.”

There is nothing “moderate” about today’s Democrat Party; it is a revolutionary group.

Our nation is in a time of extreme peril.  While we are still that “shining city on a hill,” we again confront an existential “time for choosing” because the Satanic forces of the Left see an opportunity to extinguish that shining city.

They want Christians and patriots to feel isolated and defeated.

But the world needs us to stand strong.  As before in history, there a million upon millions across the globe cheering us on.  For example, the brave souls of Hong Kong, demonstrating against the very type of regime that the Left wants to impose here and carrying the U.S. flag as a symbol of defiance against the Communist Chinese.

Millions more may appear indifferent, but they are rooting for us in their hearts, even as their “free speech” is brutally suppressed by political correctness and “hate speech” laws.

They cannot win this for us – we must.

Stand up and oppose the “Progressives” – the revolutionary Leftists.  Speak up.  Speak out.

And especially on November 3, 2020: deliver “shock and awe” to the Democrats by absolutely decimating them at the polls!

Do it for God and Country – to honor His call, and because our country is worth saving!

God Bless You; and may God Bless the United States of America!

Once Again, President Trump Hands Democrats Enough Rope…

By: Joan Swirsky | Canada Free Press

The vast majority of American citizens want to pursue their careers, raise their families, and have money in their pockets, peace in their hearts, and safety in their homes.

Here’s an old, irrefutable chestnut: If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging!

But Regressives refuse to learn that lesson and are yet again falling into the chasm of a trap President Trump has set for them.

Listen to the uproar the mostly-leftist media bleat every minute of every day: Why aren’t the president and his Republican colleagues saying anything, doing anything about all the destruction and madness that the [Democrat-approved] anarchists are wreaking throughout the country––the arson, smashed windows, destroyed businesses, separatist zones in Seattle and NY City, defund-the-police initiatives, out-of-control thuggery, on and on?

THE MEME THING

Yet the silence persists. Does even one person on the planet think this is a coincidence? A fluke? A historical aberration?

Just as Democrats send out daily talking points––remember the Dick Cheney “gravitas” meme that every media person echoed ad nauseam and then never said the word again after Bush 2 was elected?

Same thing today after Regressives learned that the word “defunding” polled badly so they uniformly switched to “reimagining” police reform.

I’m imagining that the president or his surrogates sent the Republicans and Conservatives a memo to refrain from addressing the vast destruction we’ve been witnessing for weeks. Because even in this Age of Communication––where instant text messages and emojis and YouTube videos and Instagram pictures invade the airways literally billions of times a day–– doing nothing and saying nothing can still be more powerful!

A BIRDS-EYE VIEW

By letting the 24-7 TV pictures speak for themselves, President Trump is providing all 330-million people in America––and the other eight-billion people around the world––an up-front birds-eye-view of what leftism/liberalism/regressivism is all about.

All those people are watching the president faithfully adhere to the U.S. Constitution’s mandate to allow the states to conduct their own affairs. He is giving those states the rope he knows will hang them, as is already obvious in the imploding cities of Seattle, Manhattan, Baltimore, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Portland, and all the other Democrat-run cities and states where chaos reigns.

He’s allowing all the world to see the startling incompetence and hypocrisy of the Democrat Mayor of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, who embraced Antifa and Black Lives Matter when they commandeered and blockaded a six-block area of the city and entitled it CHOP (Capitol Hill Organized Protest). Then she told the police force to stand down and, in essence, to ignore the escalating pillaging, rapes, and murders. But when the protestors approached her own home, what did she do? She called the police!

The president is providing a front-row seat for the world to witness the aberrational behavior of the man who NY Post columnist Michael Goodwin calls Mayor Putz. That would be Democrat NY City Mayor Bill DiBlasio who just slashed $1 billion dollars from the police budget and put his America-loathing Democrat wife Chirlane in charge of the destruction of historic statues––she who cannot account for another billion she was given for mental-health programs.

In the same way, the president is allowing America and the world to see the ongoing––for years––black-on-black carnage that takes place every week in Chicago, and to wonder why clueless Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot is so busy with her platform platitudes of Equity*Diversity & Inclusion* that she personally makes it appear that Black Lives Don’t Matter at all in Chicago.

Not to omit the firsthand look the entire world is getting at the way in which California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom––who is fighting a recall vote––has let the major cities in his state, Los Angeles and San Francisco (Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s turf), to become meccas of homelessness, with thousands of crude tents and cardboard shanties lining street after street after street, while tens of thousands of mentally ill and addicted people lie in the gutters, used needles and disease-carrying filth are everywhere, and there are piles of animal and human feces every few feet.

STILL THE SMARTEST GUY IN THE ROOM

All of the above––and hundreds of other equally shameful and sordid examples––is what Democrat leadership actually looks like. Not to be outdone, to be sure, by the aspiring “leader” of the free world, who remains sequestered in his basement, the true victim of a heartless and ambitious wife and a ruthless former boss who is directing his lackeys to continue to prop up the place-holder while he makes sure that his second try at rigging a presidential election will not fail as it did in 2016.

Meanwhile, President Trump can take full credit for issuing the Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues––with a mandatory penalty of 10 years in prison––as well as combating recent criminal violence.

Now, on this glorious July 4th weekend, full credit also goes to President Trump for opening up America and seeing:

The U.S. economy added an incredible 4.8 million jobs in June–– beating estimates by 1.7 million jobs––the largest monthly increase ever recorded!

The addition of an amazing 7.5 million jobs over the past two months.

The unemployment rate also fell to 11.1%!

That the nation has now recovered roughly one-third of the 22 million jobs it lost to the pandemic.

The DOW has the best quarter in 33 years (up 17.77%).

NASDAQ up 30.63% in 90 days!

The bottom line is that except for the clinically insane politicians on the East and Left coasts, the vast majority of American citizens want to pursue their careers, raise their families, and have money in their pockets, peace in their hearts, and safety in their homes.

President Trump knows this in every fiber of his being. But not one single Democrat has a clue.
