I’ve already noted, time and time again, that the Left has convinced itself that there is no possible way that Trump wins in November. This was echoed in 2016, when they were really wrong, and I don’t expect it to be different this year.
The Left relies far too heavily on polls that they can manipulate and rig (and often do exactly that) and determine the likely results of the election from that alone. They look at national and state polls, particularly battleground state polls, and convince themselves that Trump is toast and there is little, if anything, he can do to save himself.
I’ve already expressed why this is utter malarkey time and time again, whether you are talking about the 2016 election or the 2020 one, but one writer for Spectator USA (not to be confused with the American Spectator) is not at all convinced that Biden will defeat Trump.
The title of his piece is: “Get ready for Trump’s second term,” and the subhead reads: “Much depends on whose hands control each House of Congress.”
So this writer, named Leonard Toboroff, is convinced of the exact opposite of what the Left is convinced about: Trump is going to win re-election.
He begins by noting who exactly Trump’s opponent is: “President Trump’s adversaries are running Joe Biden, a fallback Beltway lifer who is credibly accused of selling his office, leaking false intel about Gen. Flynn to the Washington Post and handsiness with female political allies. Oh, and it appears that a prosecutor in Ukraine is digging into the potential criminal liability of the one or more persons who gorged on Burisma’s trove of US taxpayer funds. Joe’s son Hunter is named, and so Joe, in a context not yet fully disclosed.”
Now, the fake news media will never pay attention to the graveyard that is Biden’s closet, but informed voters will take note of the many illegal dealings of Joe Biden, as well as his questionable character and record of failure as Senator and Vice President.
However, the election will be about far more than Joe Biden’s past. Toboroff notes that if there is a criminal investigation in Ukraine, nothing much will come of it, pending a potential Joe Biden plea of cognitive impairment that will allow him to walk (though, if such a plea is made before the election, that would be rather devastating to his campaign because it’s one thing to note he is mentally impaired, but it’s another thing entirely for him to admit it to a court – not that I actually expect anything to come out of Biden’s dealings with Burisma).
But Toboroff eventually begins talking more specifically about Trump and brings some much-needed logic to illogical fake news polls. He writes: “How is it possible for Trump to have 54 percent approval on the economy and 70 percent disapproval on the virus – and in the same poll? Nor would 300,000 people have donated a total of $20 million in a single virtual fundraiser by Trump if they believed the near-unanimous propaganda that he’s certain to lose in November. Nor would the ‘peaceful’ (Joe’s word) burning down of a courthouse in Portland, Oregon, cheered on by its mayor, edge Trump into a two- or three-point snap lead over Joe in a solid blue bastion.”
And he’s right about this. It makes no sense for so many people to be willing to donate to Trump if everyone and their grandmother believes it’s a lost cause. You don’t donate to a candidate you think will lose just because you might be trying to make a point or because you believe in their agenda or whatever else. You donate because you expect them to win and believe they will win.
The Saudis didn’t donate to the Clinton Foundation as much as they did because they expected Hillary to lose. They believed she would win, and when she didn’t, the Foundation saw a sharp decline in donations. The Saudis (and others) were trying to buy access.
But with Trump, regular people are donating their money and it makes no sense if they expected him to lose, especially in economic times such as these, when many people’s jobs have either been furloughed or eliminated completely.
People do not believe the fake news polls that claim Trump is toast. These polls were claiming the same thing LAST SUMMER, back when even the people RUNNING the polls didn’t really believe the polls and wholeheartedly expected Trump to sweep through reelection. These polls were claiming the same thing in 2016 as well, even up to election day itself, when some people had Clinton’s chances of election to be over 98%!
The fake news polls can claim whatever they want – reality will show something far different.
At any rate, Toboroff continued, noting the sort of approval ratings he is getting from Rasmussen, which is at around 48% and “trending up.”
“Translated logically, this gives Trump a wide lead in all battleground states that would translate into a bit more than 300 Electoral College votes. Let’s take this as grounds for examining what a second Trump term would lead us to expect.”
Toboroff notes that a lot will depend on which party gets control of both chambers of Congress. Like Lincoln, he writes, Trump “faces a House divided.” But he expects Trump and Republicans to win back the House, while also keeping the Senate as well.
With this expectation, Toboroff says that one of the biggest, if not the biggest focal point for the next four years will be the situation with China, specifically, militarily. “Trump will believe that a military buildup will propel economic growth – and it might, because now ‘military’ encompasses most all of the strands of American energy, from innovation to distribution.”
He notes that Trump won’t trust his intel community’s report on the military strength of China and will test and verify for himself just how strong they are, be it through pushing back against the ChiComs at the South China Sea or by possibly protecting Taiwan from a potential invasion (especially since Hong Kong has fallen to the Chinese communists and Taiwan was never recognized by China as an independent nation).
Now, I do not exactly want a conflict with China that would escalate into a war, particularly as we are trying to get out of endless wars in the Middle East, which establishment members of both parties have prolonged for as long as possible. But with a militarily-aggressive China, Trump will have to do something, especially if we wish to keep China from growing its influence (which has been a bit shattered by the Chinese coronavirus).
On the Homefront, Toboroff writes that “rebalancing the judiciary” aka turning the lower courts away from the radical liberals and towards the Constitutional conservatives, focusing on an American education system that does not promote the failed and dangerous ideology of communism and focusing on punishing the people that tried to undermine Trump’s first term with the Russia hoax are things that Trump will have to keep an eye on.
These, I would argue, are some of the biggest issues in America today. The Left’s influence is far too massive and obstructive in the lower (and highest) courts and we need to change that. Regarding education, I have long written about how we need to reform education so that communism does not get promoted and taught (in a positive way) in schools, while also bringing back God into the classrooms (and the atheists who have a problem with that can lick my boot).
Toboroff suggests charter schools, which is definitely a good option. Charter schools are schools of choice (not dependent on districting) and are independently run, though publicly funded. The Left HATES charter schools almost as much as they hate homeschooling because they can’t get their filthy paws all over the students to corrupt their young minds and teacher’s unions don’t apply to these schools.
They don’t like charter schools because they work fairly capitalistically: if they are better, parents will choose to send their kids there, as opposed to the crappy ones. The Left doesn’t want parents to have a choice as to where to send their kids to school (at least, as long as the parents live in a particular district and don’t move out).
Transforming the education system will be crucial for the future of this country, which the Left has had far too much influence in constructing.
In any case, to begin wrapping up, Toboroff fully expects Trump to win a second term and expects that second term to be rather full for Trump, what with having to deal with a 21st century USSR, having to ideologically reform the judiciary, having to practically reform the education system so as to not indoctrinate generations into foolishly and dangerously believing communism is not absolute crap, and dealing with American traitors who tried to cheat in the 2016 election, failed, and then tried to undermine Trump’s first term and remove a duly-elected president through the Russia hoax.
I, like Toboroff, do not buy into the idea that Trump is finished (as I have demonstrated in numerous articles). The only thing I will add is that no one should buy into the idea that Trump can’t lose and get complacent as a result. The Left will do what it can to cheat in this election; they will pull out every dirty trick they have to in order to ensure Trump doesn’t win again. We cannot afford to get complacent and believe Trump is guaranteed to win. I believe he will, but will go out to vote (IN PERSON) to ensure his victory.
“For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.”
The fake news media, for the past couple of months, was reporting on the riots as being “peaceful protests”, and only recently have they figured that showing a bunch of violence does not lend credence to their words, so they have just decided to claim they were peaceful while not showing any of the violence that is objectively happening in many places.
As always, despite what the media reports, reality is considerably different. However, there sometimes are fairly objective reporters, even in relatively Leftist organizations like the Associated Press, who are embedded in the thick of the stories and have to report what they are actually seeing themselves – or at least, feel compelled to tell the truth instead of denying the reality they themselves might be witnessing.
Mike Balsamo is an investigative reporter for the Associated Press who was in the thick of the riots in Portland, and more specifically, the riots attempting to destroy a federal courthouse.
Balsamo reports in a Twitter thread: “I spent the weekend inside the Portland federal courthouse w/ the US Marshals. Mortars were being fired off repeatedly, fireworks & flares shot into the lobby, frozen bottles, concrete, cans & bouncy balls regularly whizzed over the fence at high speeds.”
He continues: “We wanted to show you a look inside the protests from both perspectives – out in the crowd with protesters and inside the courthouse with federal officers. It was a really eye opening [sic] experience to see it firsthand. I was inside the courthouse & [a fellow AP reporter] was outside the fence.”
“I watched as injured officers were hauled inside. In one case, the commercial firework came over so fast the officer didn’t have time to respond. It burned through his sleeves & he had bloody gashes on both forearms. Another had a concussion from being hit in the head w/ a mortar.”
“The lights inside the courthouse have to be turned off for safety & the light from high-powered lasers bounced across the lobby almost all night. The fear is palpable. Three officers were struck in the last few weeks & still haven’t regained their vision.”
“When we were out inside the fence line, someone fired off a mortar. It exploded inches away from us, but no one was hurt. A large bonfire had been started in the street & people were aiming fireworks through the fire at officers behind the fence. It was almost 2:30 a.m. then.”
“The officers outside the Portland courthouse have been hit by an array of objects from canned food to ball bearings fired from slingshots. On Saturday night, a DHS officer was soaked completely in orange paint thrown from one of many paint cans later seized by authorities.”
Balsamo also reports that the “tactical decisions” made by the federal agents were “very thought out”, largely in order to avoid escalation and larger trouble. Reportedly, at one point, the rioters had cut a large hole in the fence and decided not to go out to avoid escalation. They only really acted and dispersed the crowd once the entire section of the fence was pulled down.
Before I move on, I would like to speak of a couple of things. First, while I can perhaps understand that this is the AP and they have certain “standards” for reporting on these things, it is still a shame that Balsamo referred to these people as “protesters.” They are not protesters; they are violent communist rioters. Many of them don’t even know exactly why they are there other than to spread chaos and try to “take down capitalism.”
This has LONG ceased to be about racism or police brutality or whatever else. Those things may be the excuses thrown by some of the rioters if one were to ask them, and certainly, those are the excuses thrown by the media and the Left, but they are nothing more than that: excuses. If this were about racism, black-owned businesses would not have been burned down within the first WEEKEND that this whole debacle started. If this were about police brutality, Nike stores and jewelry stores would not be constantly looted (not that I care one wit about Nike, considering they benefit from slave labor in China. If looting their stores hurts them financially, good).
Secondly, while I can understand decisions made by those in charge of the federal agents, particularly to try and protect the agents themselves, I don’t know why they don’t just stomp all over the would-be communist revolutionaries present. The riots in Portland have been happening for two months straight, and this is without taking into account that Antifa riots had been happening rather regularly in Portland for at least the last few YEARS. Granted, their hands may be fairly tied by the local government and the honest-to-God moronic mayor, but one would think they would try a bit more to defeat the riots, considering these are FEDERAL agents. Not sure if federal agents have to answer to the mayor of a city, but these riots are not going to end any time soon until they are UTTERLY defeated.
What that means could be a number of things. Maybe arresting the lot of them, but they can only arrest so many people, and not all of them are taking actions that directly harm the officers, so they wouldn’t be in jail for all that long and would quickly rejoin the riots because these people have no lives. Maybe electoral victories, but that would be outside of the agents’ power and it would have to mean a majority of people in Portland voting out spineless people like the mayor, but the riots would still go on (I also do not at all expect Democrats to lose in that city).
I don’t know what the solution to the Portland riots are, especially as they had been happening for some time now, apart from a show of overwhelming force that serves to completely demoralize these criminals, and even then, who knows how effective that would be?
At any rate, returning to Balsamo, he then goes on to report on what some agents he had spoken to had to say. A Deputy US Marshal had reportedly told Balsamo: “I am worried for my life, every time I walk outside of the building.” Balsamo reported that that sentiment “extends widely. They are offended by being told to get out of Portland. They live here, work daily to take violent criminals off the street & it is their city too.”
Eventually, Balsamo reported: “One thing is very clear: there’s no plan for the feds to retreat right now. Those protecting the building feel a personal & professional duty to protect the courthouse. Many raised the same point – the courthouse stands for justice, for all people. And they aren’t going anywhere.”
All of this chaos, as moronic Democrats claim that there is nothing violent going on in Portland (and other places) and yell at AG Barr during a Congressional hearing because he has chosen to DO HIS JOB AS THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.
Of course, I perhaps shouldn’t be calling Democrats “morons” at least for this. While they are exactly that, they are also evil pieces of crap, who have accused Trump of trying to destroy the country while they are doing exactly that, quite literally at this point. They LOVE the chaos and violence happening right now in places THEY run. Even if their own mayors get insulted and have to have armed body guards protecting them from the violent peasants, those very mayors will still go in front of a news camera and say how “peaceful” the people throwing concrete at police officers are.
Meanwhile, they tell you, like mafia gangsters, that all of this violence and chaos (which they do not acknowledge is happening) will all come to an end if we all vote for Biden.
Scummier people have hardly been seen before.
“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”
We revisit this topic once again because, while the media is no longer reporting on the violent ANTIFA riots (because they realized they are helping Trump win by showing how dangerous these Leftists are), these riots are still happening and violent crime is still on the rise in Democrat-run cities like New York, Portland and Chicago.
One myth the Left often perpetuates is that law enforcement is the embodiment of white supremacy and stands in direct opposition to people of color. This is just not true at all, for a variety of reasons apart from the fact the Left is full of lying lunatics.
The simple matter is that no one suffers more from a lack of police funding, let alone a full-blown abolishment of the police force, than black people and black communities.
Horace Cooper has a great article at The Daily Signal talking about this very topic. In it, he points out a variety of things that the Left makes up, such as the idea that cops stand in opposition to black people, or present a direct threat to black people, and points out that, opposite to what the Left might claim, black people themselves do not support the defunding or abolishment of the police.
Rasmussen released a poll last month, as the riots and chaos were at the forefront of everyone’s minds and source of news, that pointed out just how unpopular the idea to “defund the police” actually was to America itself and to black people specifically.
According to the poll, 64% of surveyors (survey size of 1,000 American Adults) were reportedly “concerned that the growing criticism of America’s police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety in the community where they live. That includes 39% who are Very Concerned.”
I doubt that number is much smaller since then, because despite the fact that the fake news media isn’t reporting it anymore, riots are still happening across the country. I already mentioned Portland, but there have been riots in California and Colorado as well. Even in Texas, there have been “peaceful demonstrations” which have resulted in the death of an ANTIFA rioter who attempted to kill someone in a car, but the driver had a gun themselves and fired back. The driver, thankfully, was completely unharmed.
In any case, as I said, riots are still happening and people want to be safe. I’ve already talked about this very notion in an article from a little over a week ago, talking about the increase in gun sales in recent time, particularly from first-time gun buyers.
Now, returning to that Rasmussen poll, I would specifically like to point out the numbers by demographics. Specifically, what black people said about this. According to the poll, 67% of blacks, three percentage points higher than Americans overall, said they were concerned about a shortage of police and a reduction in safety.
63% of whites and 65% of other minority Americans said the same. This demonstrates that the people most worried about a lack of police presence are BLACK PEOPLE, the same race of people the Left claims is systemically targeted and even hunted down by the police. What does that tell you about the Left’s rhetoric, then?
And Cooper made sure to bring this point home: “The fact is that black communities suffer far more form under-policing violent crime than from over-policing.”
“In a city like Chicago, the astronomical homicide rate has nothing to do with peace-officer shootings and is instead due to intentional underfunding of law enforcement. This strangulation of the Chicago Police Department results in elevated emergency response times and a mounting list of unsolved homicides. This is a concern across the nation.”
Certainly, it is. When the police are not allowed to do their job, crime skyrockets. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the logical consequence of diminishing the ability of police officers to do their job. Now, of course, not every place is the same. It makes no sense to try and over-police places which are typically more peaceful. It’s about a place’s culture, and unfortunately, danger and violence are a part of the Chicago culture now. That’s not to say that a majority of Chicagoans want this to be the case, but gang activity is so common there and has such a presence, it practically defines the culture of Chicago.
Weekends with shooting victims in the single-digits are considered good weekends in Chicago. And in recent time, things have only escalated further, especially with their tyrannical mayor’s insistence of further choking law enforcement and keeping federal agents from being able to fix the problem.
Cooper also points out this other fact: despite the fact that black people make up 6.2% of the American population, they also make up more than 11% of law enforcement officers. A common reason for many black people to join the ranks of the police is so that they can keep their communities and neighborhoods safe (though this is the case for many cops of other races). They see how poorly run and dangerous these communities are and wish to take out and imprison the bad elements in those communities in the hopes that the communities will become just a little bit better.
People, particularly black people, support law enforcement because a lack of their presence means greater suffering for black people and communities.
Black people tend to be arrested more than other groups of people and sent to prison more than other groups of people, not because the system is out to get them, but because they tend to commit more crimes than other groups of people. This is an uncomfortable fact and those who share it tend to be labeled as racists, even though it’s an irrefutable fact backed up by empirical evidence.
At any rate, like I just said, black people are particularly hurt by a lack of law enforcement. Part of the reason why so many people have gone to buy guns in recent time, especially first-time gun buyers, is that if the Left succeeds in demonizing the police enough that they get severely underfunded, or outright defunded to the point of being effectively inoperable, or morale is so low that there is a shortage of police because they no longer wish to risk their lives to serve people who call them demons for doing the right thing, people’s last line of defense is self-defense via gun ownership.
All people want to be safe. We seek or build shelter to protect ourselves from the natural elements as well as other people who might wish to inflict harm on us and have done this for millennia. We acquire things with which we can defend ourselves, whether they be large sticks, spears, swords or guns. We seek food to eat for our survival and we perform tasks as jobs to be financially secure (to some extent).
Humans feel the natural need for safety because safety is a matter of survival. Whether one is a Christian who values the life of people whom God has created or a Darwinist atheist who fully subscribes to the idea of natural selection and survival of the fittest, people understand that safety is NECESSARY for human survival and life.
Unless we deem it necessary, we don’t tend to take risks. A mother will risk her life for her child, but if her child is not in mortal danger at all, the mother won’t do anything that would risk her life. So in order to survive – to protect those we love – we find means of safety. When a shooting happens, some will go out in search of police or will immediately call 911. Others will pull out their guns to protect themselves and their loved ones or will go to hunt down the shooter.
People want to feel safe, and the communities that most benefit from police presence are the ones who are most at risk when that presence disappears.
The Left taking away people’s means of safety is not going to end well for them. As I noted in the aforementioned article, you cannot simultaneously have a defunct police department and extreme gun regulations that borderline strip the law-abiding of their guns. One of the reasons is you need a police department to regulate those gun control laws. Another is that crime lords pop up, mafia style, offering “safety” to people in exchange for things like cash or services or “favors”. Outright warlords, like the one in CHAZ/CHOP can also pop up, who rule with an iron fist.
But perhaps the biggest reason you can’t have a defunct PD and extreme gun control is because you cannot back people into a corner and expect them to just give up. When backed into a corner, people will go straight at you, seeing no other means of escape. In this instance, people would illegally arm themselves for the purposes of protecting themselves and their families, or even act as a private police force, bringing vigilante justice to their communities.
None of these options are exactly ideal, and yet, the Left is pushing for the contradictory policies of defunding police departments and implementing extreme gun control laws.
The Left is a menace to everyone, but especially to black people.
“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.”
Truth be told, there are far too many reasons I could list that would answer that question for me to fit into one single article. I have already brought up, in the past, how the polls were showing Clinton would win by a landslide in 2016, and even shown the specific poll numbers and electoral vote predictions from a number of people, so there is no need for me to bring that up again.
There exists another reason that is far more contemporary than the 2016 polls: 2019 and 2020 polls.
You see, Matt Mayer has an interesting piece on Spectator about how “Predictions of Trump’s demise may yet again be premature.”
Mayer begins by showing the following numbers coming out of battleground states: in Arizona, Biden is up by two points. In North Carolina, he is up by eight; 11 in Pennsylvania, 10 in Michigan, 9 in Florida and eight in Ohio.
Under normal circumstances, and in a world where the news media is honest and objective, such numbers would spell trouble for Trump. However, we know perfectly well that the latter is not true, as we are literally talking about fake news polls. But that is not the only reason those numbers are suspect, and in fact, are not exactly bad news for Trump at all.
You see, those numbers that spell doom for the Trump re-election campaign were from last summer, before the Chinese coronavirus (and subsequently, the administration’s response to it, which some would argue was botched or at least not as good as it could have been (not that I am such a person)) and the “racial” riots we are seeing across the country and subsequently, Trump’s response to that as well. Last summer, just about everyone, Left or Right, was just about convinced that Trump would steamroll through the election and easily get re-elected.
Now, the Left is convinced (to an extent) that Biden will beat Trump as a result of the last roughly half year. So, then, those numbers that already had Biden winning in those battleground states have to have gotten bigger for Biden, right?
No, actually. Aside from Arizona, where Biden is now “ahead” by six points (a four-point increase), Trump has “closed the gap” in the other battleground states, in some by roughly half or even more.
In North Carolina, where Biden was supposedly leading by eight last year, he now only leads by one. In Pennsylvania, where Biden used to lead by eleven points, he now only leads by five. In Michigan, his lead is now only 6 (four-point decrease); in Florida, his lead is seven (two-point decrease); Wisconsin, Biden’s lead is 6 (three-point decrease) and in Ohio, Biden supposedly leads by six (two-point decrease).
If Trump truly butchered the response to the Chinese coronavirus and has performed abysmally in terms of dealing with racial inequality in America, and subsequently, dealing with the rioting and the destruction and burning down of places of business, homes, etc., - if Trump is truly as big of a screw-up just in the last half year as the Left says he is, how is it that polls show him gaining ground as opposed to losing it?
Like I said, last year, just about everyone was fully expecting Trump to easily win reelection. Despite what the polls said, I don’t think even the fake news media carrying those polls were convinced that Trump would be defeated by any of the 666 Democrat presidential candidates. Despite Biden’s lead early on, he would tend to flounder and he inspired just about no confidence at all, or even any energy. NO ONE is excited to vote for Biden, even now. Bernie was the clear opposition candidate for the DNC establishment and they did whatever they could to ensure Bernie would not be their nominee. Bernie got cheated twice.
The rest were a random assortment of lunacy, idiocy and radical communism but little personal appeal or notoriety to get very far in the polls. Warren was a cultural appropriator (not that any on the Left would dare call her that), Harris was a cop and an AG who routinely and unjustly would send black people to jail. Bloomberg’s stint lasted all of a half a movie’s run time and was essentially shot out of the sky after his first debate was over; Buttigieg was just the “look at me, I’m gay but somehow also the only person on here who would dare invoke the name of God” candidate; Gabbard was the only one I could even slightly tolerate because of her seemingly actual desire to bring our troops back and her hilarious attacks on Hillary, and the rest were totally forgettable.
Seriously, look up the Democrats who ran for president in 2020 and I can guarantee you straight up have not heard of at least a few of them, or forgotten that some of them ran.
My point is, despite the large number of candidates the Democrats boasted, time and time again, they all demonstrated a variety of reasons as to why they would lose to Trump by either a little or a lot. And now, the Democrats are stuck with a rapist with Dementia who refuses to leave the basement or answer any questions to the media because any unscripted engagement is 100% likely to result in him saying something else that demonstrates just how mentally unfit he is to run for president, let alone actually be president.
And this is the guy they say Trump is guaranteed to lose to? Again, even in their own polls, Trump has only GAINED support in key battleground states, even amidst a period of time in which one could argue Trump wasn’t at his best.
And we are still months away from the election. I have said this many times, but a lot can happen in between now and November of 2020. I have said this before the changing of the calendar took place, back when everyone was super confident Trump would easily be reelected, and I say this now, after the last few months of relative struggle. The events that will determine the results of the election have yet to occur. While one would think that the last few months have destroyed Trump’s chances, such a belief is rather short-sighted.
Even my own predictions on certain things have not panned out. I expected the Tara Reade story to be one that would haunt the Biden campaign. And while other things have obviously overshadowed that story because they were more important (namely, the pandemic), the fact that Biden is a rapist and hasn’t suffered the consequences in terms of support from women shows I was wrong with my predictions. Even the “you ain’t black” comment didn’t do much to hurt him with black people and he will still likely pull a majority of black voters to him.
So for anyone to believe the polls today, let alone a year ago, to be any indication of the results of the election is simply an exercise in madness. And even still, while I did say I wouldn’t bring this up again, I feel the need to mention that polls in 2016, specifically the day of the election, showed Clinton winning big and that obviously did not happen.
Not to mention the Cato Institute survey which showed people to be more reluctant to express their beliefs to other people because of fear of persecution, which could be one reason the polls say what they say: it’s entirely possible Trump supporters are either saying they “don’t know” who they will support or will say they will vote for Biden when they don’t actually plan to do so, and are just saying that to not be judged or punished by the pollsters.
The polls are wrong. Simple as that.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
As much as the Left pretends there is no such thing as “cancel culture” (and we will see momentarily why it is that they say this), there really is no denying its existence. If anyone says something deemed “offensive” by people who have some amount of power – be it executive power or the power of pressure – that person runs the risk of being financially and professionally punished for sharing such opinions.
There were calls to have Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey fired for sharing a pro-Hong Kong image on Twitter. Whenever a celebrity says something even remotely outside the lexicon allowed by the Left, that celebrity faces incredible pressure to take back what they said, and if they refuse, are threatened with financial repercussions, such as losing business deals. A good example of this is J.K. Rowling, who supposedly is “anti-trans” for sharing beliefs that do not align with the gender-dysphoric nutjobs, but she refuses to cave to the mob, and so, has lost business deals for publications for her popular Harry Potter books.
Now, J.K. Rowling has enough money that she doesn’t really have to worry about this. Even if no publisher will ever be willing to print another copy of her series, no book store – online or physical – be willing to sell her books, and no Hollywood studio ever be willing to work with her again or sell more digital or physical copies of the movies, essentially making it impossible for Rowling to profit off of her popular series, she has enough money to be entirely financially independent. She is, for all intents and purposes, uncancellable.
However, most people do not have Rowling money. Most people don’t have “screw the mob” money. Most people have to work five or more days a week, for 8 hours or more a day, in order to make a living. Most people need to be able to work and cannot afford to step out of line, saying or doing something that someone, be it an executive or a lowly intern, might find offensive, and risk losing their job as a result of it.
I’ve heard stories of people being practically interrogated by their employers for NOT sharing the black square on social media as part of a Black Lives Matter movement event. It’s no longer sufficient to simply be quiet about something, or not expressing one’s own views if they run contrary to the Leftist-approved narrative (and this explains why Leftists were making slogans like “silence is violence”). People are literally not allowed to be silent on an issue and must express the Leftist view, regardless of if they actually agree with it, otherwise they can be considered violent enemies.
There are also countless stories of people, such as media personalities, being fired or being threatened with termination for saying “all lives matter”, as though that is an extremely offensive term that is incorrect (though I do legitimately think the Left does not believe that all lives matter, and in fact, KNOW they don’t believe this, considering they are willing to kill babies in the womb and are willing to incite violence and terror against conservatives).
It’s no wonder, then, that Cato Institute found that nearly two-thirds of Americans (62%) believe they cannot safely express their views in fear of some form of retaliation.
According to Cato: “62% agree ‘the political climate these days prevents me from saying things I believe because others might find them offensive.’”
It’s more than just worrying people might find something offensive. If it stopped at that, nowhere near as many people would agree with this. It’s the fact that the “offended” party might retaliate in some form or another, often involving HR or the individual’s higher-ups, and get the individual punished for “offending” someone. And these punishments range anywhere from relatively mild suspensions to outright terminations from the companies.
And looking at things in terms of political demographics, one can see just who is more likely to be comfortable expressing their opinions and who is more likely to want to self-censor.
According to the poll, 58% of “strong liberals” believe they are free to speak their minds. In other words, uber-progressive, communist liberals believe they can say what they want without fear of repercussions (and this is one of the reasons why Leftists say there is no cancel culture – they hardly experience it). This stands in STARK contrast to everyone else, including even more moderate liberals.
According to the survey, 52% of liberals believe they have to self-censor, with 64% of moderates and 77% of conservatives agreeing with this notion.
Like I said, it no longer is enough to just be quiet on something. One must express the uber-Leftist view on everything. This, naturally, leads even more moderate liberals, those who might vote for people like Biden but don’t agree with the idea of defunding the police (because it is an asinine proposal) or destroying our economic system in order to fight a naturally-occurring event of climate change, to self-censor in fear of retaliation from people further Left.
And, of course, it’s not at all surprising to see conservatives being so willing to self-censor. I have mentioned this in various places, but the pillars of power in this country are largely owned by the Left. Conservatives stand in complete contrast to the Left, and so, are viewed as the natural enemies, and the out-of-power conservatives can only hope to not get in trouble by not expressing their beliefs.
Even objective, apolitical FACTS are cause for someone’s termination, such as in the case of Stephen Hsu, who was forced to resign from his position as vice president of research and innovation at Michigan State University after he shared a research paper (from the university itself) that found police were not more likely to shoot African-Americans than other races of people.
It’s a straight-up FACT that police are not more likely to shoot and kill African-Americans and last year, more unarmed white people were killed than unarmed black people. And yet, for sharing the findings of a research paper from the university itself and sharing facts about it, he was punished for sharing “scientific racism” and running contrary to the BLM movement and the Left.
Simply stating the fact that there are only two genders can get someone fired. Simply stating the fact that there is no man-made climate change can get someone fired or punished at some capacity, particularly for climate scientists. Simply stating that Trump is OUR PRESIDENT can get someone fired.
If you want any more proof that the Left does not operate using facts, there it is. Stating facts, if they run contrary to the Leftist narrative, has the possibility to get someone fired.
What’s more, the Cato Institute survey found that 50% of Strong Liberals support firing people who donate to Trump, while 36% of Strong Conservatives support firing people who donate to Biden.
I have a couple of things to say about this.
First, I am not surprised by that number from “strong liberals”. They are extremely intolerant and openly supporting Trump is seen as a crime against humanity itself, let alone making a donation to Trump.
Second, I do not see the Strong Conservatives as being equally or remotely as intolerant as the Strong Liberals, not simply because of the disparity in numbers; I see this as Strong Conservatives being willing to use cancel culture, a weapon designed by the Left, against the Left itself.
If a conservative can be made to suffer because of cancel culture, there is ZERO reason not to use it against the Left. As I have stated before, conservatives not using cancel culture against the Left is like someone refusing to use their gun in a duel, or like a side of a war refusing to fire against their attackers.
Think of cancel culture used by conservatives as a gun: we use it as a self-defense method.
Unlike a gun, however, I don’t exactly like cancel culture. Ideally, no one would be punished for sharing their beliefs – except maybe for communists, and we currently have in the law books the Communist Control Act of 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and “prevents communists from holding office in labor organizations” according to MTSU. While many of the provisions of this act were eventually repealed, I think we should bring it back with full force to outlaw communist from serving in Congress and all types of offices.
Ideally, people should be free to express themselves without fear of retaliation, but we live far from an ideal world for a variety of reasons, chief among which is our very nature as human beings, which is evil.
So, since we do not live in an ideal world, we have to do certain things which are not exactly pretty. Such things include using cancel culture, which is largely awful, against the Left, since they have no trouble at all using it against us and it’s asinine not to fight back when one is at war if one wishes to not be defeated.
At any rate, we can clearly see the sort of damage cancel culture itself causes to people who simply want to live their normal lives, largely unplug from politics, and do honest work for a living – paying their bills and providing for themselves and their families.
People want to be able to go to their places of work without having to worry about what they say or do on their social media during their off-hours. People want to be able to freely express their support for either the Democrat or Republican presidential candidates, or simply abstain from engaging in these discussions, without being worried about being punished for it in terms of their finances or even their very employment.
I hope we can one day return to a time when people didn’t have to worry about this stuff. That time, however, will have to be after this cultural war of ours is over and the good guys have won.
One final note about this that I wish to quickly make is that this Cato poll really shines quite the light about other political polls. If so many people are afraid to be honest with their beliefs, exactly how many of those people do you think honestly answered a pollster who asked them who they plan to support in this election?
Just saying, this is another possible reason for Trump to supposedly be “behind” Biden in the polls, particularly by as many points as he supposedly is (apart from the fact that these pollsters always under-sample Republicans and conservatives).
“Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand.”
The Chinese Communist Party is the modern-day version of Nazi Germany. Few would be willing to dispute that, apart from those who specifically profit from what the Chinese do, such as major American corporations and famous celebrities like LeBum James (not a typo).
The only difference between Communist China and Nazi Germany is that people weren’t aware of what Germany was doing until after the war. We had only really begun to learn and expose what the Nazis had been doing once the war was over and the concentration camps were made defunct.
The world didn’t know of the atrocities and crimes against humanity that the Nazis perpetrated. The world said “never again” would this be allowed to happen.
The world lied.
Nowadays, in real time, we see the atrocities that the Chinese Communist Party is inflicting not only on Uighur Muslims, but on Christians, on Jews, on black people and on its own citizens. I have said in the past how communism makes people slaves to the State. China is one of the examples of this being entirely and absolutely true.
And yet, because the CCP is in many corporations’ and politicians’ pockets, the atrocities that they do, which we are WITNESSING as they are happening, get either forgiven or totally ignored (usually the latter) because saying or doing anything that would risk companies’ or politicians’ ability to make money off of China is not something they’d be willing to do.
Instead, despite the fact that they make far more money in the States, many choose to openly display hatred towards America.
It’s absolutely appalling, but not exactly surprising, to see corporations and politicians like Joe Biden getting bought out by the CCP, even as the commies are committing heinous crimes against humanity and we are witnessing them doing exactly that.
For you see, this isn’t the first time that American corporations (or politicians) have chosen to do business with an international threat to individual lives and freedom. This isn’t the first time American corporations have profited from the crimes against humanity perpetrated by a foreign nation.
The Daily Caller has a fantastic piece on this very topic, and they share a wealth of information about the sorts of business deals and practices American corporations made with the Nazis.
IBM, for example, reportedly “established its Dehomag subsidiary in Germany after Adolf Hitler become [sic] Chancellor in 1933 and used its new factory and American capital to aid in the Holocaust.”
“Investigative journalist Edwin Black wrote in his book IBM and the Holocaust that the company’s technology was used to manage the ‘logistics of genocide’ by creating punch card machines that tracked Jews and other populations across Europe and in the concentration camps.”
American photography company Eastman Kodak established financial ties to Nazi Germany through subsidiaries, according to the National Archives. According to The Nation, the subsidiaries used slave labor in two factories, with 80 slave laborers being used in the Berlin-Kopenick factory and roughly 250 in the plant in Stuttgart.
Ford and GM also collaborated with Nazi Germany, according to a civil case in 1998. Attorney Bradford Snell said: “GM was an integral part of the German war effort,” and he alleged that the Nazis “could not have [invaded European nations] without GM.”
According to The Daily Caller, “Nazi Germany operated nearly 44,000 concentration camps during its existence and used them for purposes ranging from forced labor to mass sterilization to genocide.”
The CCP is doing much of the same exact thing, only largely to Uighur Muslims and Christians. For example, “re-education camps”, which is nothing short of concentration camps, in the Xinjiang region are set up with the objective of curbing Islamic extremism and ethnic separatism among the Uighur Muslims. While curbing Islamic extremism isn’t a bad thing at all, the way in which the Chinese do it is itself very extreme. Reportedly, the program involves very strict digital surveillance, bans Muslim public prayer, forces Muslim men to shave their beards and forces the Muslims to eat during Ramadan.
While I am not exactly a fan of Muslims or Islam, especially as they have historically and presently been responsible for mass murders of many people, particularly Christians and Jews, at the very least, I cannot approve of what the CCP is doing to Uighur Muslims.
The way in which they “curb” Muslim extremism is very reminiscent of how the French Jacobins or Argentinian government dealt with suspected enemies of the Revolution and with suspected communists, respectively. Anyone who was suspected to be an enemy of the French Revolution or suspected to have been a communist was subjected to being arrested/disappeared and being either publicly executed (guillotines) or privately executed (there are stories of suspected communists being thrown off of planes by Argentinian officials).
My point being that the CCP just suspecting someone of being a Muslim extremist gives them the green light to take them in when the Muslims they are taking in might not be extremist at all. I have met and seen Muslims who have actively been against the extremist and violent ways of Islam, such as the Imam of Peace on Twitter (and others), and thus know that not exactly all of them agree on absolutely everything Muslims do (which is why there are even different “denominations” of Muslims like the Shiites and the Sunnis).
What the CCP is doing to the Uighur Muslims, regardless of what one thinks about Muslims or Islam in general, is nothing short of the very kind of crimes against humanity that the Nazis did on the Jews and many other types of people.
Only this is even worse because the excuse the world had for not doing anything about the Holocaust was that the world simply didn’t know it was even happening. The technology was not available at the time to do things like satellite spying or someone leaking footage of security cameras loading Jews onto trains to head to the concentration camps.
The world could legitimately claim ignorance to the Holocaust that the Nazis perpetrated. The world has no excuse at all for doing nothing about the holocaust the CCP is perpetrating as we speak. We KNOW it’s happening. We can see the footage of Uighurs being lined up and prepared to be boarded onto trains. We have found Chinese contraband of Uighur Muslim’s hair.
And yet, despite this, corporations turn a blind eye (even as China opportunistically set the world on fire with their coronavirus) and continue doing business with China, building factories there, creating programs there, etc., etc.
Even as we know of the atrocities of the Chinese communists, Nike still willingly profits from the slave labor forced to create their shoes and other products.
Even as we know what the CCP is doing to fellow human beings, Disney still chooses to do business in China with their Shanghai Disneyland park.
Even as we know what the neo-Nazi CCP is currently responsible for, numerous Hollywood studios have worked with Chinese-owned companies like Tencent, and they censor their movies for Chinese audiences, even as they claim to be “super-woke.” They will talk about how big a deal it was to have a homosexual sex scene in a movie about Elton John, talking about how progressive they are, while they remove that scene completely for the viewings in China.
Even as the Chinese communists are instigating a systematic cultural genocide (or systematic racism, if you will) of Uighur minorities, the NBA will scrutinize Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey for sharing a picture that was pro-Hong Kong (as China has now taken over Hong Kong and destroyed its autonomy), and do business with the Chinese to aid the CBA and have players participating in programs in China.
I can’t really blame Ford, GM, IBM and the companies that worked with Nazi Germany because no one knew of the atrocities that country was committing until after it was defeated and destroyed.
What excuse do the NBA, Nike, Apple, Hollywood, and reportedly, 83 well-known brands have for doing business with a China which is actively involved in a 21st century holocaust that we KNOW is happening?
No one has any excuse for supporting or collaborating with China.
Perhaps, it shouldn’t be so surprising that they would do this, given that corporations have collaborated with Nazi Germany, but again, one can’t seriously blame the corporations that collaborated with Nazi Germany (too much) because no one knew what it was doing. Of course, Nazis were still authoritarians, and there is little reason, if any, to work with such a government, but if we’re talking about human atrocities, one can forgive companies’ ignorance about the Holocaust.
The companies currently aiding and abetting China, however, cannot be forgiven for doing this, especially as we know what is happening in that God-forsaken country.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
It’s been nearly two entire months since the tragic killing of George Floyd, and Leftists in various places are still taking advantage of it by staging violent riots, so I think it is prudent for us to revisit just how bad of a political misstep this has been for the Left.
A little over a month ago, I wrote about an ABC News poll which showed 64% of Americans opposing the movement to “defund the police,” while 34% backed the idea. In a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, the gap has somewhat closed a bit, but I think there is good explanation for it that does not support the idea that the Left’s ideology is gaining popularity.
You see, in that poll, “only 40 percent support cutting funding to police in order to spend more on social services, while 55 percent oppose such a move.”
Based on the numbers alone, you would think the communist movement to defund the police is gaining traction. After all, the number of people who support such a move went up by 6 percentage points while the number of people who oppose it went down 9 points. However, in every poll, how a surveyor phrases a question is extremely important (as well as the political demographics of the polls, which routinely underpoll Republicans).
Note exactly how ABC News reported the figures: 40% support defunding “in order to spend more on social services.” The way the Left can make their insane proposal of defunding the police appear to be less insane (which still is just as insane as ever) is by directing people’s attention away from the defunding of police and towards the increasing of funding for other social programs.
Many Americans have gotten used to supporting social programs, ashamedly so, and many would want to see an increase in funding for such social programs, if they actually help people (which they hardly do, largely depending on the program). It’s like a simple magic trick: a magician directing the audience to pay attention to what the magician wants them to pay attention to, getting them to look at one hand, while doing something else with the other hand to perform the trick.
It’s pure misdirection, but the point still remains, as people should realize, that the Left wants to defund the police, which means cutting off their entire funding and rendering them functionally inoperable.
That’s probably the best explanation I have about the difference in the numbers, as it’s still clear as day that people DON’T want to live in a society that is objectively less safe due to an absence in police.
The poll also talks about the popularity of Black Lives Matter (63%) – but even that number is a bit iffy, since there are people that make the distinction between the phrase and the Marxist organization, but there are those who view the phrase and the organization as inseparable – and the popularity of removing statues that commemorate Confederate officers (interestingly, 52% oppose removing the statues with 43% being in support), but the most important aspect of the poll, in my opinion, was the “defunding the police” aspect of it. And even with the b.s. spins they want to put, this is a losing issue for the Left, which is why Biden isn’t throwing his “full” support.
Of course, anyone with a brain would understand that he will support whatever his Leftist bosses will tell him to support, and his comment about “absolutely” being willing to defund the police demonstrates this.
At any rate, moving on to the next poll, we have a Fox News poll about how concerned Americans are about the breakdown of law and order in various cities and how serious of a problem this is. And suffice to say, the Left REALLY is stepping on a rake by supporting this lawlessness.
When asked, “How serious is the problem of a lack of law and order right now?”, 79% of respondents said that it was a serious problem, while only 17% said it wasn’t serious. In other words, 79% of respondents are concerned, to one extent or another, about the breakdown of law and order in many American (Democrat-run) cities.
This includes 78% of men, 80% of women, 80% of whites, 81% of blacks, 77% of Hispanics, 78% of non-whites, 73% of people under the age of 30, 75% of people between 30-44, 82% of those aged 45-64, and 82% of those 65 and older.
Breaking things down by income and political parties, 81% of those making under $50k a year are concerned and 78% of those making more than $50k a year agree. 75% of Democrats, 86% of Republicans and 74% of Independents are also concerned, which is fairly eye-opening. 73% of Democrat men, 75% of Democrat women, 84% of Republican men, and 88% of Republican women are concerned about lack of law and order.
Among political ideologies, 71% of “liberals”, 77% of moderates, 84% of moderate/conservative and 87% of conservatives are concerned. Of those who approve of Trump’s job as president, 85% are concerned about lawlessness and of those who disapprove of Trump’s job as president, 75% are also concerned. 79% of those in battleground states are also concerned about lack of law and order.
Finally, breaking things down by education, we find what white people with a college degree (77%) are a bit less concerned about this than whites without a degree (83%).
89% of white evangelicals are concerned, as well as 79% of those living in urban areas, 80% of those in sub-urban areas, and 80% of those in rural areas. 79% of parents are also concerned about this issue.
Now, out of all of those numbers, there are obviously quite a few that stand out.
For one, the general response from everybody was overwhelmingly in the direction of “people are concerned about there not being law and order here.” While I perhaps shouldn’t be so surprised that this is as much of an 80-20 issue as it is, it’s good to see the actual numbers on paper (or my computer screen) to understand how badly the Left chose the wrong side on this issue.
People want to be safe, and taking away the ability of police officers to do anything jeopardizes that safety. Do you want to know why there have been record numbers of gun sales in recent time? Precisely because of this. And while the media will lie and claim that the record number of gun sales is responsible for an uptick in crime, anyone with half a brain can tell that the uptick started WELL before people started rushing to get guns. Or at least, it somewhat precedes it. Law-abiding citizens legally purchasing firearms are NOT the ones SETTING BUILDINGS ON FIRE, STAGING AUTONOMOUS ZONES AND RULING LIKE MINIATURE WARLORDS.
When police funding is threatened, particularly to the extent that it is – that they would be rendered totally ineffective to stop crime – it becomes people’s jobs to defend themselves because no one else will do it. People were buying guns in response to the anarchy and chaos of the riots, in an attempt to defend themselves, their families and their property should these terrorists find their way to their doorsteps (such as the McCloskey’s, who are being punished for demonstrating their willingness to defend their homes from people who broke into their community).
When the Left threatens police funding, they turn the country into the Wild West. People HAVE to have some assurance of their safety, so they seek out weapons with which to defend themselves.
Like I said, it’s really not surprising at all that this is so much of an 80-20 issue, with the 20 being the hardcore Left and people who actively participate in these acts of terrorism, while the 80% are sane, rational individuals who do not wish to live in an American Somalia.
That 71% if liberals, another stand-out figure, also agree is quite telling.
Virtually EVERYONE is sick and tired of a lack of law and order, which is probably a good part of the reason as to why Trump is beginning to send the Feds in even more force in crime-riddled cities.
While the Left and the fake news media will cry about this being Nazi Germany and compare the Federal agents to Nazi Stormtroopers (like the drunkard occupying the seat of House Speaker recently did), the numbers show that the VAST majority of people are sick of this nonsense and want an end to it.
The Democrats cannot win running on anarchy, but they will seemingly do their darndest to do it, even while trying to gaslight people and lie to them, misdirecting them as to what their true intentions are.
People want to be safe. If Trump can prove that he can provide that, he will win in an absolute landslide.
“For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.”
As I said in part 1, the fake news media will run b.s. story after b.s. story about Trump to make him look bad, like an idiot, like an evil genius, and sometimes, like both, which often leaves people perplexed if they don’t know the natural illogical fallacy that is the Left’s very nature.
They will talk about how Trump has killed over 100,000 people due to his response to the Chinese coronavirus (funny how they never blame Xi Jinping for the “4,000+” deaths the CCP has reported), or how he colluded with the Russians to steal the 2016 election or how he was in the process of colluding once again, with the Ukrainians this time, to steal the 2020 election, or how he is a massive racist, anti-Semite, a selfish jerk, etc., etc. – all things that are easily disproven by anyone who can tell reality from fiction.
However, they would never dare, in this day and age, run with stories that make Trump look good because doing so would go against their established narrative. Anything that makes Trump look good helps him and that bothers the Left, so they don’t do it. In the past, however, there have been plenty of reported stories about Trump’s kindness, generosity, and even courage to fight against racism and anti-Semitism.
Here are the final four stories of the eight total that I have been talking about that show Trump for who he is that the fake news media would never dare report.
First, there is a story from 1991 about Donald Trump stopping a would-be mugger armed with a baseball bat.
On November 20, 1991, the New York Daily News reported: “Call it The Donald to The Rescue. When he saw a ‘big guy with a big bat’ bashing another fellow, Donald Trump did what any self-respecting billionaire would do: He ordered his driver to pull over.”
“Witnesses said Trump, with Marla Maples tugging at his arm to try to stop him, leaped from his black stretch limousine Monday evening during the assault on Ninth Ave. near 45th St.”
“’Someone in the car looked over and said, “Gee, look at that, it’s a mugging,”’ Trump said. ‘I said to my driver to stop the car because it was brutal-looking,’” according to the NY Daily News.
“Trump was at first reluctant to discuss his daredevil deed, but then he warmed to the task.”
“The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, ‘Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat.’ I guess he recognized me because he said, ‘Mr. Trump, I didn’t do anything wrong.’ I said, ‘How could you not do anything wrong when you’re whacking a guy with a bat?’ Then he ran away.”
The thing about this story is that there were some witnesses who reported that Trump got there after the mugger had left, having joined the crowd of on-lookers, but there are other witnesses, such as one who chose to remain unidentified, who said: “There was a guy with a bat, hitting a guy over the head, and Trump yelled, ‘Put that bat down. What are you doing?’ The guy dropped the bat, came over and started talking to him.”
Trump reportedly left the scene once he saw a doctor treating the victim and heard that an ambulance was in route to the scene. Unfortunately, the police said the attack was not reported, so that’s about as far as the whole thing went.
While there is some contention to the validity of this claim and the details surrounding the incident, this does sound like something Trump would be willing to do (maybe to a certain extent). Trump has been known to have helped people in time of need (as the other stories both in this article and the last one go to show).
The next story happened in 2008, when famous singer Jennifer Kate Hudson lost her mother, brother and nephew, who were found murdered in Chicago (Hudson’s mother and brother in their Chicago home and Hudson’s nephew had been reported missing, with the FBI finding his body three days later).
Upon this family tragedy, Hudson, as well as some of her family members, received help from Donald Trump in the form of being allowed to stay at Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago free-of-charge.
Trump told People Magazine: “They are safe. She’s a great girl and we’re protecting them well.”
The famous singer was, understandably, in total shock over the events that took away some of her family.
Seemingly, the perpetrator of this heinous crime was the ex-husband of Hudson’s older sister Julia, who was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of home invasion, being convicted on all counts and being sentenced to three life sentences without parole.
While this was a short story with few details (the article is from shortly after the events took place) and most of it centers around the tragedy that befell the Hudson family, it does still somewhat speak to Trump’s kindness, that he allowed the famous celebrity to reside in his hotel with all expenses covered.
It’s a small thing, compared to some of the other things I have thus far shared, but I’m certain the Hudson family appreciated the gesture and his kindness.
The next story I will share goes as follows:
In 2013, a bus driver by the name of Darnell Barton had just picked up 20 high school students to take them home from school. On his route, Darnell “spotted a woman standing along the railing on an overpass, leaning over the traffic below,” according to the UK Daily Mail.
Darnell reportedly pulled his bus over and talked the woman down from ending her life. This gesture, which reached Trump’s ears, led to the then-real estate mogul to write a letter to the bus driver, saying: “Your quick thinking resulted in a life being saved and for that you should be rewarded.”
Trump came through with that notion and sent Darnell a check for $10,000, by way of then-Mayor Byron Brown’s office.
Trump further wrote: “Although I know to you it was just a warm-hearted first response to a dangerous situation… it saved her life.”
It’s awfully clear that Trump appreciates people’s lives (as if his pro-life record as POTUS didn’t already indicate that) and when someone goes the extra mile to help someone in need, Trump understands that such a heroic action, though it might often go unrewarded or even unthanked, ought to be rewarded.
Finally, there is the story of Donald Trump helping a former Miss Wisconsin with her fatal disease.
This one is a tad bit more well-known than the others because it was reported during the 2015 primaries, and the former Miss Wisconsin, Melissa Consin Young, shared this story at a campaign rally for Trump.
At the rally, Young thanked Trump for giving her son “a future” after she is to succumb to autonomic failure, a disease that affects the part of the brain that regulates our heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, respiration, digestion and other vital organs. The disease keeps that part of the brain from functioning, obviously severely altering the functions of the body parts and functions I just described.
Young thanked Trump for helping her Mexican-American son, ensuring that he would be cared for following her passing. At the rally, Young said: “You’ve saved me in so many ways. In recent years, I’ve been struggling with an incurable illness and I’m on home care now and it was caused by a doctor’s medical negligence. In those dark days fighting – right now, all the tubes have been removed and I have a ‘do not resuscitate’ order and I have a seven-year-old son – those days in the hospital, I received from you a handwritten letter that says ‘to the bravest woman I know.’”
“I wanted to thank you because through you and your organizations, my son, a Mexican-American, through your organizations and just being able to stand on that stage with you in 2005, and the outpouring of love, ultimately provided my son with a full-ride to college,” Melissa went on to say.
Melissa explained that, while she was pregnant with her son, she fell very ill. “During my pregnancy, I became very ill. I couldn’t stand without passing out. Just lifting my head was too much. I begged my doctor to help me over and over. My husband would carry me into his office. I was begging him saying I’d sleep there on his floor til he helped me. I told him over and over again for months that I think I’m dying. His response was ‘It’s your first pregnancy, you look great.’”
“He failed to hear me or even run simple blood work.” Three weeks before her due date, she explains, she passed out trying to get to the phone and her husband found her and called 911. At the hospital, they had to induce labor.
According to the Daily Mail, “She says because of the negligence there is no way to restart that part of her brain and her heart is like that of an 88-year-old woman.”
Truly, a heartbreaking story for the former Miss Wisconsin. I certainly wish her the best and pray for a miraculous recovery, knowing God is the Healer and no illness is too complicated for Him.
At any rate, the story, alongside all of the others that I shared in this article and the previous one, speaks of an entirely different Donald Trump than the one that the media often depicts.
The fake news media will take things out of context, spin things, or even just make things up about the guy when he doesn’t deserve that at all and has, in the past, been renowned for being a very generous individual, completely antithetical to the sort of monster that the MSM portrays him as.
They will say he is a racist and anti-Semite when he has, both as POTUS and before he was elected, demonstrated a unique love and interest for minorities and Jewish people (and really, everyone).
Donald Trump is far different from what the Left and the fake news media portrays him as. This much is perfectly clear to any rational individual.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
The fake news media will run b.s. story after b.s. story about President Trump in an effort to make him appear to be one of several things: he’s supposed to either be A) an absolute idiot, B) an evil genius setting out to destroy America, or C) somehow, a combination of both – an incompetent buffoon who plots with the world’s baddies and is somehow successfully evading the oh, so brilliant federal and congressional investigators chasing his schemes.
It’s all a bunch of phony, agenda-driven crap and anyone with a double-digit IQ can tell. But unlike what the media will say about Trump (now, at least), he has historically been one of the kindest and most generous celebrities around.
Here, I will share 4 of 8 stories that the fake news media will never share with you about Donald Trump, or if they do, will try to spin as either not having occurred or actually being bad or some such nonsense. The reason for this is that I really want to include all of them, but doing so would make this article far too long, so I’m splitting this into two different articles.
First, the story of Donald Trump saving a woman’s farm from foreclosure.
In September of 1986, a then-66-year-old woman named Annabel Hill was facing foreclosure of her Atlanta, Georgia farm, which her family had owned for many generations.
Her husband, Lenard, had committed suicide roughly a year earlier in an attempt to save the farm with life insurance money. While she did receive the payment for his insurance policy, it wasn’t enough to cover the family’s debts.
Her story was helped be spread by an Atlanta businessman who had helped another farmer to keep his land, when her news conference appeared on NBC’s Nightly News, which was watched by Donald Trump.
Trump wrote about her story in a couple of his books – “The America We Deserve”, where he wrote: “I saw a story on the news about Annabel Hill, who’d hit bottom,” and “The Art of the Deal”, where he wrote: “It was a very sad situation and I was moved. Here were people who’d worked very hard and honestly all their lives, only to see it all crumble before them. To me, it just seemed wrong.”
The future president reached out to the Atlanta businessman, who got him in touch with the bank that held Hill’s mortgage. Trump wrote: “The next morning, I called and got some vice president on the line. I explained that I was a businessman from New York, and that I was interested in helping Mrs. Hill. He told me he was sorry, but that it was too late. They were going to auction off the farm, he said, and ‘nothing or no one is going to stop it.’”
Trump further wrote: “That really got me going. I said to the guy: ‘You listen to me. If you do foreclose, I’ll personally bring a lawsuit for murder against you and your bank, on the grounds that you harassed Mrs. Hill’s husband to his death.’ All of a sudden the bank officer sounded very nervous and said he’d get right back to me. Sometimes it pays to be a little wild. An hour later I got a call back from the banker, and he said, ‘Don’t worry, we’re going to work it out, Mr. Trump.’”
In the end, the auction was called off and Trump, as well as a few other wealthy people, helped raise, or even contribute, the rest of the money necessary to pay off the debt.
In a rather famous picture, Donald Trump invited Hill to Trump Tower on Christmas and, surrounded by members of the media and other people who had donated to help Hill, burned the mortgage papers for the farm (as seen below).
Hill said of Trump’s motives for the charity: “The only way I can explain it was God touched his heart.”
That certainly is likely.
Moving on to the next story, a quick one this time, we have the story of an 11-year-old girl named Megan, who faced the terrible challenge of living with a debilitating bone disease called Brittle Bone Disease.
Originally, Megan went on the Maury Povich show looking for a friend, because Megan noted that she was lonely and without friends. On Maury’s show, he introduced her to another girl who had the same disease, a girl named Tiffany.
Trump had heard of this little girl and wanted to help, so he made a special video for her and gave her a nice gift. In the video, Trump told her: “I think you are so beautiful, both inside and out. I had a little something, a little gift that I gave to Maury, who’s a friend of mine… and I hope you and your mother have a good time with it. And you’re very special, and you just keep it up and keep up that attitude. So good luck, and you stay in touch.”
While Trump couldn’t physically be there to give Megan her gift, he had Maury give her the gift, which was a check of an unknown amount, but given the reaction from Megan and her mom, as well as Maury’s commentary of “all those zeroes”, it was likely a very generous amount.
The third story I will talk about is the story of a Jewish Orthodox boy with a rare disease who was saved by Donald Trump thanks to his generosity.
Andrew Ten, a then-three-year-old child, and his parents were seeking medical treatment in New York, though they lived in Los Angeles, requiring them to make the trip to NYC via plane.
However, they had a big problem: no commercial airline would allow them to fly on their crafts because of the elaborate life-support system (a portable oxygen tank, a suction machine, a breathing bag and an adrenaline syringe) that Andrew could not live without. They had no normal means by which they could get to New York in order to get Andrew the treatment necessary to him.
Out of options, Andrew’s parents made a last-ditch effort to save their son and one that most people would think was a long-shot: they called Donald Trump, explained their situation, and begged him to help them out.
According to Harold Ten, the father of Andrew, “Mr. Trump did not hesitate when we called him up. He said ‘yes, I’ll send my plane out.’” And that’s exactly what he did. Trump’s private jet landed in New York’s La Guardia airport and out of it, came Andrew, his parents and three nurses working on Andrew.
Asked why he thought Trump allowed them to use his private jet, Harold replied: “Because he is a good man. He has three children of his own and he knows what being a parent is all about.”
Further, Harold, being Jewish, said he believes Trump fulfilled the following Talmudic saying: “He who saves one person’s life is as if he saved the entire world.”
The young boy reportedly was born healthy, but one morning at the age of 10-months, he suddenly stopped breathing. Six months later, the same incident occurred and doctors were unable to explain what was causing this. Andrew reportedly had not cried since he was two-and-a-half (I should mention this story was from 1988, so this was a long time ago and I don’t know what has become of him since then) and required being fed through a tube, having lost his gag reflex and the ability to swallow.
Like I said, I don’t know what has become of the guy, but I hope he is well.
The fourth and final story I will share in this article is a story that really should dispel any insinuations that the guy is anti-Semitic or racist in any way (and there are plenty more stories that show he isn’t a racist or an anti-Semite, not that the Leftist media would ever care to acknowledge this, since doing so would run contrary to their narrative).
This story is about Donald Trump insisting on including Jews and black people at Mar-a-Lago in the 1990s, a time when it was common for both to be, at one level or another, excluded from entering or being a part of the clubs.
Talking on Newsmax in a July 2015 interview, author Ronald Kessler said: “When Donald opened his club in Palm Beach called Mar-a-Lago, he insisted on accepting Jews and blacks even though other clubs in Palm Beach to this day discriminate against blacks and Jews. The old guard in Palm Beach was outraged that Donald would accept blacks and Jews so that’s the real Donald Trump that I know.”
You see, when Trump was trying to open up his golf course in Palm Beach, he had trouble getting approved by the town council, which was imposing restrictions on his bid.
The Washington Post, on Nov. 14, 2015, reported: “Trump undercut his adversaries with a searing attack, claiming that local officials seemed to accept the established private clubs in town that had excluded Jews and blacks while imposing tough rules on his inclusive one.”
“Trump’s lawyer sent every member of the town council copies of two classic movies about discrimination: ‘A Gentleman’s Agreement,’ about a journalist who pretends to be Jewish to expose anti-Semitism, and ‘Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner’ about a white couple’s reaction to their daughter bringing home a black fiancé.”
Trump, obviously, ultimately won the fight and in 1997, then-Anti-Defamation League President Abraham Foxman praised Trump for “elevating the issue of discrimination at private clubs,” according to Chron. It’s rather interesting how the ADL treated him then, having fought against racism and anti-Semitism, contrasted to how they treat him now, claiming racists and white supremacists support Trump. The ADL is phony Leftist garbage anyway, but it’s worth noting what one of their presidents said about Trump fighting racism in an industry seemingly filled with it.
“Foxman credited Trump’s move with encouraging other clubs in Palm Beach to do the same as Mar-a-Lago in opening up” for Jews and black people, according to Chron.
Tomorrow, I will share another four articles that the media won’t share about Donald Trump, but for now, it is quite obvious to anyone with an Internet connection and the desire to find out the truth about anything that Donald Trump is not the hideous monster the fake news media constantly portrays him as.
He is not a racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe, selfish anti-Semite. Story after story of his actions speaks to the guy’s generosity and kind-heartedness.
I mean, the very fact that he decided to run for president when he absolutely had no need to do so and only stood to lose by doing so, just to get the chance to save the country he loves, is an extreme indication of the guy’s selflessness.
Donald Trump is a good, Godly person (as in someone who acts according to the Will of God, not someone who is comparable to God, so don’t get it twisted) and anyone telling you otherwise is either ignorant of that or a hateful moron.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
We have talked plenty about the demonization of police officers as a whole, but have hardly gone deep into those demonizations. White cops get automatically called racists just because of their skin color (and the people calling them such things do not realize the irony in their actions), and non-white cops, be they black or Latino, etc., essentially get called traitors to their race for being police officers.
The Leftist mentality is a sick and depraved one, full of nonsense and error that does not reflect reality in the least. To the Left, the police are a symbol of oppression and tyranny, built specifically for those purposes, when in reality, they are there to protect and serve (as if that slogan on the side of police cars wasn’t enough to tip people off).
Granted, not all of them manage to accomplish that, considering officers like Chauvin, the one who killed George Floyd, had 17 complaints levied against him for use of excessive force. Sometimes, a police officer does more to hurt than help, but the purpose of the police, and actions of the overwhelming majority of the police, is/are to the benefit, not the detriment, of people.
But the Left sees them as nothing but monsters, which is why they call the white cops “racists” automatically, not knowing who they are, what they believe, what they’ve done, where they come from, etc., and call the non-white cops “race traitors”, also not knowing their stories.
Well, one black cop held an interview with KGW8 recently to talk about the protests happening in Portland day after day and night after night (not that the media is covering these protests because that does a disservice to the Left and I think the media has figured this out, finally). Officer Jakhary Jackson was interviewed in a press conference about being on the frontlines at the Portland protests.
The interview (video below) was rather long at roughly half an hour, so I won’t cover everything that was said, just the most important parts, at least in my opinion.
One of the things Officer Jackson said was: “I got to see folks who really do want to see change like the rest of us that have been impacted by racism. And then I got to see those people get faded out by people that have no idea what racism is all about. Never experienced racism. They don’t even know that the tactics that they are using are the same tactics that were used against my people.”
He added: “Coming from someone who graduated from PSU with a history degree, it’s actually frightening… They say if you don’t know your history, you’re doomed to repeat it. And watching people do that to other people just because of what they’ve decided to do with their life.”
Speaking more about the earlier thing he said, about people that were actually impacted by racism get faded out by those who have no idea what racism is all about, Officer Jackson provided a very good and crucial example of the sort of idiotic “white knighting” white liberals do for black people when no one asked them to do anything of the sort.
The example is that, often times, he, as a black officer, is approached by black people and asked his opinion of the George Floyd killing or some other issue relating to race and the police. But every time he attempts to engage in conversation with people of color, and seemingly, this ONLY happens when minorities talk to him, a white liberal protester will come in and shout, saying “F the police. Don’t talk to him,” or something akin to that.
Seemingly, this is such a frequent occurrence that Officer Jackson can tell when it’s coming. Recently, Officer Jackson explains, a young black girl came up to him to ask him why he wouldn’t talk to the protesters, and as he began to explain that every time he tried doing so, he would get cut off by some white protester, as if on cue, a white protester came in and interrupted him. Jackson said: “right when I said that, this white girl pops right in front of her,” cutting him off from conversating with her. The black girl was amazed that it happened, saying: “He just said that was going to happen.” Jackson then said: “I told you,” to the girl.
Jackson then tried talking to the white girl who had interrupted his conversation with the black girl, saying: “I’ve been called the N-word. She’s been called the N-word. Why are you talking to me this way? Why do you feel that she can’t speak for herself to me? Why is it that you feel you need to speak for her when we’re having a conversation?” The white girl seemingly just replied: “Someone told me to do it.”
Peculiar. Considering I believe Democrat orgs are in charge of organizing these protests (I mean apart from BLM and Antifa), and have seen videos of Leftists recruiting people (bribing them) to participate in these protests or just do something to someone, I wouldn’t be surprised if that “someone” who instructed her to interrupt the conversation was a member of a Leftist organization.
The reason I theorize this is because we all know Leftists hate the truth, hate facts and hate knowledge. If the black girl had a real heart-to-heart conversation with the black officer, she might reevaluate certain things and actually grow in her understanding of the world. The Left can’t afford this, what they view as an atrocity – a black person leaving the Democrat slave plantation of thought – so they have random white people interrupt the conversation (or will do it themselves) to keep the free exchanging of thoughts from happening.
If the officers are allowed to explain things from their side, understanding might occur from some protesters, and the Left can’t afford that to happen if they want their pathetic little “revolution” to succeed, so they keep it from happening in a multitude of ways.
In any case, moving on from my little theory (of which I have little evidence to outright prove), Officer Jackson went on to describe other kinds of experiences he has had in dealing with protestors, many of which are not quite as mild as conversations being interrupted.
“I had taken an explosive, I had been hit with a full beer can, a rock in my chest, frozen water bottle had hit me.” Clearly, he has seen and experienced a lot of hatred just because of his desire to protect and serve his community – a community which would be in total shambles without a police presence.
Thankfully, not everything he shared was quite so grim, as he also noted that, after a protest, he met two young black men who were cleaning up the street (the Left always leaves litter and garbage on the streets in their protests, almost as if the idea that they care for the environment is total crap). “I was so moved by that and so impressed,” Officer Jackson said, that he went over to them to shake their hands.
Then, Officer Jackson said something pretty noteworthy. When asked by an interviewer about “some of the hateful and racist things” he and other minority officers have had to endure during the protests, Jackson said: “It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest; you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd. And you have white people screaming at black officers ‘you have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen.’ You hear these things and you go ‘Are these people, are they going to say something to this person?’ No.”
“And that’s just one example. Having people tell you what to do with your life, that you need to quit your job, that you’re hurting your community but they’re not even a part of the community. Once again, you as a privileged white person telling someone of color what to do with their life.” The interviewer suggested that such a thing was “hypocrisy” from the protesters and Jackson “absolutely” agreed.
I, for one, am not at all surprised to see Leftists being racist. Anti-white racism (which we’ll get to in a minute) is not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged, if the incident with Nick Cannon is any indication, but even anti-black racism, if thrown at acceptable targets, is also not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged.
Black police officers get called traitors to their race, just like black conservatives do. Hell, Joe freakin’ Biden said that if you are black and you are on the fence about whether you support him or Trump, “you ain’t black.” The jackass had the audacity to tell this to a BLACK radio show host, Charlamagne Tha God, who just ignored that statement basically or took no offense to it at all, probably because he’s a Leftist and he intends to vote for Biden anyway.
The Left will claim they aren’t racists while DM’ing black conservatives on Twitter and calling them the N-word. The Left will claim they support women and hate sexists while passing around rumors about Hope Hicks, a female Trump campaign staffer, sleeping around with multiple male Trump campaign staffers, making jokes about her being “passed around” like a hake sack in a college dorm room.
The same Left that kept black people slaves and FOUGHT to keep them as such today attack black people who leave the Democrat plantation of thought or who just want to serve their communities by being police officers.
The ONLY difference between today’s Left and the Left of the 19th and 20th centuries is that today’s Leftists are also anti-white. They are still every bit anti-black that they always have been, but they pretend to be pro-black and pro-minority. In reality, they see minorities as property that exists solely to get them elected.
Speaking of anti-white rhetoric, the Left definitely employs it against police officers. Unsurprisingly, Officer Jackson has also defended white police officers, knowing the sorts of things that they have to go through on the regular (things that snowflake Leftists would never dare to do once, let alone as a job).
Officer Jackson explains that, whenever someone uses the N-word against him, he has seen white officers jump in to defend him against such a person. Jackson also notes that he has witnessed these white officers try to save black residents in the city from dangerous situations:
“When you’re standing on the line and they’re getting called those names and they’re being accused of being racist when you’ve seen those officers helping people of color, getting blood on them trying to rescue someone who has been shot – gang violence, domestic violence – and you see them and they’re truly trying to help save someone’s life and they turn around and are called a racist by people that have never seen anything like that, that have never had to put themselves out there. It’s disgusting.”
The Left foolishly believes that entire police departments can be eliminated and we would only see improvement in this country in terms of racial equality and crime. They believe all you need to take care of and diffuse a potentially dangerous situation is an unarmed government worker trying to talk people out of being evil like they’re a cartoon character.
Reality, as always, is far different from what the Left perceives it to be. Cops aren’t intended for “tyranny” or “oppression.” They don’t exist to “keep black folk down.” They exist to protect and serve their communities, and statistically, many black communities need plenty of policing due to the violence present there (largely due to the Left’s economic policies that hurt people from the bottom-up).
I remember in my first year of high school in South Florida seeing police officers a lot of the time, not because the kids were overwhelmingly black (the school was located in the outskirts of Little Haiti), but because there were fights that happened just about every single day. And not small or silly fights that at most got people sent to the principal’s office either. I mean fights that were big and bad enough that cops needed to come in to separate and, in some cases, detain the kids and put them in handcuffs and in the back of the squad cars.
Again, the reason wasn’t because the kids were black or because the cops are racist, but because there were situations where the cops NEEDED to be there.
Just as cops are NEEDED in many places today, especially in the places run by Democrats (if the WaPo chart showing crime in a number of cities is any indication).
I pray for Officer Jackson’s safety (and the safety of the other officers as well) as the city of Portland is run by a dangerous and unstable clown.
“You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
