While there are plenty of things that I could talk about, such as how Jacob Blake’s shooting has only become more justifiable in light of recent evidence or how Kyle Rittenhouse’s case for self-defense becomes more and more clear (and the NYT, of all sources, is reporting this), something that has largely been forgotten in recent time is the nonsense that is climate change and the bogus warnings given by those who peddle the theory that we are killing our planet.
And while I have written about the nonsense of anthropogenic climate change and related topics throughout the past couple of months, one aspect of this subject I haven’t talked about in well over a year and a half is the nonsense of the “last chance to save the planet” the Left peddles occasionally to scare people into giving up their rights and liberties supposedly to “fight” climate change.
The Guardian recently published an article giving us a warning and a “last chance” to fight climate change.
“Thirty years ago we were warned. Now is our last chance to listen,” read their subhead.
“Thirty years ago this week, the population of Earth was given official notification that it faced a threat of unprecedented magnitude. Emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, spewed into the atmosphere from factories and vehicles burning fossil fuels, were pinpointed, definitively, as triggers of future climate change. Melting ice caps, rising sea levels and increasing numbers of extreme weather events would be the norm for the 21st century unless action[s] were taken, warned the authors of the first assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).”
“… Three decades later, it is clear that we have recklessly ignored that warning…. The world could easily heat by 3C by the end of the century at this rate, warn scientists. The impact on the world will, by then, be catastrophic…”
Oh, no! We only have one last chance to save the Earth?! Quick, everyone, listen to these scientists who definitely do not have an agenda nor do they stand to lose anything by going against this political idea that pretty exclusively benefits the Left! Everyone, give up your cars, air travel, A/C units, and for good measure, give up your guns and civil liberties as well. We are fighting climate change, after all!
Yeah, that kind of warning doesn’t exactly lead people to be afraid if it is repeated ad nauseam for decades on end. I literally wrote an article back in December 2018 titled: “How Much Longer Can The Left Say ‘It’s Our Last Chance To Save The Earth’?”
The Left keeps returning to this well, and at some point, the jig has to be up, right?
For example, the United Nations gave us 10 years to save the world. “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed…”
Well, clearly, we must listen to these scientific experts and global leaders at the U.N.! ENTIRE NATIONS ARE AT STAKE! Sound the alarm, everyone! We only have ten years to save the world!
Get ready, my fellow Americans, for if we do not reverse course, the world will end by the year 2000!
Yeah, the U.N. gave this apocalyptic warning in 1989, claiming “coastal flooding” and “crop failures” would lead to “eco-refugees” if we don’t cease using fossil fuels by the turn of the millennium.
And while the Left claims that there are climate refugees in this day and age, that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are radical Islamic terrorists claiming to be refugees (Ilhan Omar basically being one of them) and there are illegal immigrants claiming to be refugees, but none of the warnings the Left has given over the past CENTURY have come to fruition.
Remember George Perkins Marsh? The guy basically heralded as the grandfather of American ecology? Remember how he gave a warning that the planet was “fast becoming an unfit home for its ‘noblest inhabitant,’” and that if mankind didn’t change the way it lived, that the planet would be reduced “to such a condition of impoverished productiveness, of shattered surface, of climatic excess, as to threaten the depravation, barbarism, and perhaps even extinction of the species”?
Need I remind all of us that he gave this apocalyptic warning in 1864, roughly one year before Lincoln would be assassinated?
This is a warning given to us 156 years ago now. Suffice to say, we are further from depravation and barbarism and extinction today than we were back then (well, not counting the barbaric riots going on, at least).
We have far more food today than we did during the Civil War. There are far more people today than there were during the Civil War. And while we, as a country, are nearly as divided politically today as we were during the Civil War, we are still not quite to that level yet. By the end of the war, an estimated 700,000 people died or were killed, which was roughly 2% of the U.S. population at the time. To put that number into perspective, if we were at war today and 2% of our population died, that would equal roughly 6,000,000 casualties. Thankfully, we are nowhere near quite close to that, I don’t believe, even with the animosity that exists today.
So the warning that if mankind didn’t change its ways or there would be savagery, depravity (of food and resources) and possibly extinction pretty obviously did not come to fruition and we are in a far better state today than back then.
Worth mentioning, by the way, that Marsh gave this warning before the invention of the automobile, A/C units and the other things that the Left usually blames for climate change, and still, Marsh felt as though there was sufficient anthropogenic climate change at the time for it to be noticeable and worrisome.
What we have to remember is that anthropogenic climate change is a hoax, but the climate is dynamic and changing and the planet has gone through periods of warmth and cold. That, however, does not signify mankind having anything to do with it, and certainly, having the ability to put at stop to it (which would actually be pretty dangerous, all things considered).
That the Left would continue pushing for the idea that we have a set time period to “do something” about climate change is not at all surprising to me, knowing that their only objective is to use fear to control the masses and to obtain as much power as possible, but it is still extremely asinine in the context of how the climate actually works.
Not that I expect them to know how it actually works, at any rate. I’ve pointed this out in the past, but not one single prediction the Left has made regarding climate change has ever come true. Not once have we seen climate-related flooding, droughts, excessive ice, lack of ice, or any of the other multiple and ridiculous assertions made by the Left.
This is because they are propagandists, not climate scientists or experts or anything of the sort. They only claim we have one “last chance” not because it’s true but because fear is a tool used to control people and the Left are notorious fearmongers.
Still, I do enjoy it every time they issue yet another “last chance” warning. If only it weren’t driving little children to literally have nightmares about something that will never happen. For THAT, the Left is utterly unforgivable (among many other reasons).

If that title seems familiar to you, I wouldn’t be surprised. I recently talked about Ryan Whitaker, a man who was executed by police in Phoenix back in late May. If you read that article, from the formatting of this article’s title, you can probably guess as to roughly what it is I am going to be talking about today.
On August 9th, Cannon Hinnant, a 5-year-old white kid, was shot and killed execution-style by his neighbor, Darius N. Sessoms, a 25-year-old black man, in a mobile home park in Wilson, North Carolina.
Local CBS News affiliate CBS17 reports: “Family members said Cannon was riding his bicycle when he was shot and killed along Archers Road on Sunday. Officers arrived to find Hinnant suffering from a gunshot wound. EMS workers and police began ‘performing lifesaving efforts’ at the scene, police said. Hinnant was taken to Wilson Medical Center but later died, police said.”
In a press release Monday morning, the police department said: “The Wilson Police Department sends its sincerest condolences and prayers to the family of Cannon during this tragic time.”
Thankfully, Sessoms was captured and charged with first-degree murder, receiving no bond, so he is off the streets for the time being.
Sessoms has a long criminal record of multiple felony drug charges, multiple felony probation violations, and multiple charges for possession of stolen firearms, as well as resisting a public official, according to CBS17.
The motive for this heinous crime was unclear, though there is a theory out there that Cannon rode his bike onto the suspect’s lawn. But of course, no motive will ever be a good enough excuse to executing a 5-year-old, shooting him in the head, and doing it all in front of his two older sisters.
But why exactly am I writing about this?
Well, for one, this is a horrible incident and it has spread online (in conservative media, at least). Given that I follow many conservatives on social media, this story reached my ears, so to speak, and believed I ought to talk about it, given how insidious this incident is.
A second reason for me to talk about this is similar to the one for having written about the Ryan Whitaker incident: the victim was white and the mainstream media is not covering it.
As horrible as it is, picture, for a moment, a white man arriving at the decision to brutally execute a 5-year-old black boy, supposedly for the “crime” of riding a bike on the white man’s lawn, and doing it in front of his two older sisters, traumatizing them for life. Do you think such a story would remain this quiet for this long?
Sure, this took place last weekend, but we all heard of George Floyd soon after the incident occurred. More importantly, and more relevant to this, we all heard of Trayvon Martin soon after that incident occurred, and that incident was not too dissimilar to this one.
What I mean by that is that a child of one race was killed by a grown man of another race. The differences in the two cases are obvious: Cannon was white while Trayvon was black. Cannon was an innocent 5-year-old while Trayvon was high on drugs and attacked George Zimmerman, leading Zimmerman to defend himself which resulted in the unfortunate death of Trayvon.
However, despite these things, and despite the fact that Trayvon was the aggressor in that situation, the Trayvon Martin story received national attention, to the point where the then-President of the United States felt compelled to claim that if he had had a son, he’d look like Trayvon (whatever that means).
The fake news media covered the Trayvon Martin incident like they covered the George Floyd incident, only they also made sure to selectively edit Zimmerman’s 911 call to make it sound like he was a racist and that he only killed Trayvon because he was racist.
They covered the justified death of a 17-year-old as this great tragedy (which it still was, as all deaths are tragic), while they refuse to cover the unjustifiable execution of a 5-year-old white kid at the hands of a black neighbor with a lengthy criminal history.
Look through the mainstream sources to find that none, except Fox News, have covered it. CNN hasn’t covered this story (they haven’t covered the Ryan Whitaker story either), ABC News hasn’t covered it (and like CNN, they haven’t covered the Whitaker story either), CBS hasn’t covered it, even as their local affiliate has, NBC hasn’t covered it, the NYT hasn’t covered it, the Washington Post hasn’t covered it.
The fake news largely hasn’t covered this story, when we all know how broad of a discussion it would be if the races were reversed.
Like I said, the Trayvon Martin story is relevant to this one to showcase how the fake news media covers these kinds of stories. While Trayvon was much older, was high and was the aggressor in the situation, he got all the media coverage he could want just because he was a black kid killed by a half-white man, while Cannon was much younger, was an innocent kid on a bike, didn’t hurt anyone and gets media silence because the story of a black man killing an innocent white child runs contrary to the Left’s agenda.
As I said in the Ryan Whitaker article, the death of a white person does not push the Left’s agenda. Cannon’s life did not matter to the Left. As a white person, the Left would view him as an oppressor, as an abuser and as a threat to non-whites. And don’t think that just because he was five that the Left wouldn’t view him this way. There are articles of white liberal women agonizing over their white sons because they think they will grow up to be sexual abusers simply because they are white boys.
The Left will demonize anyone and everyone they have to in order to advance their agenda, and anyone they can’t gets ignored. The only way the Left would cover Cannon’s death is if they can somehow claim that the little boy was the aggressor and that Sessoms “had no choice” but to go over to the kid and execute him in front of his big sisters.
But as it is extremely and ludicrously improbable that Cannon could at all be blamed here, his story will be completely swept under the rug as if it never even happened.
No political activists will pay for his 50th funeral proceeding. No woke athlete will demand you say his name. No woke activist will demand justice for Cannon Hinnant. No white organization will loot stores or create chaos supposedly in his name. There will be no large gatherings and marches in Cannon’s honor.
Trayvon Martin’s name, as I said in the Whitaker article, is ingrained in the minds of this nation. If you were to ask someone who doesn’t follow at least one conservative news source if they know who Cannon was, they’d say they do not. Cannon’s name will never make it into the mainstream. It will never be remembered.
A 17-year-old thug’s name is remembered. Rayshard Brooks, a threat to the police, will be remembered. George Floyd, who once held a pregnant woman at gunpoint and died overexerting his heart while under police custody, will be remembered. Michael Brown, who attempted to grab a police officer’s gun and attempted to beat said officer with the squad car door, will be remembered.
Thugs get remembered because they serve a political agenda for the side that controls the mainstream media. Law-abiding members of society like Ryan Whitaker, employees on a business trip like Daniel Shaver, and innocent children like Cannon Hinnant do not get remembered because their stories serve to undermine the political agenda of those who control the media.
The fake news media’s silence on this story tells us everything we need to know about who they are: rotten, despicable monsters.

There is a very big lesson to be learned in how almost everyone reacted to the Chinese coronavirus: do not panic and do not listen to the fake news media about the potential consequences.
Almost everyone around the world began to panic once the Chinese coronavirus numbers began to go up and up earlier in the year. The fake news media, particularly at home, wanted to ensure the best way to destroy the economy and beat Trump in the election, and as such, they began reporting about how bad things were, how we were woefully unprepared, how a couple of million people might die in the States, how we need measures to avoid that and to stop the spread of the virus (which originally was “slowing” the spread, but it turned into stopping it altogether, which was always an impossibility).
The fake news media and the Left insisted that in order to beat the virus, we all needed to stay inside our homes as much as possible and that businesses needed to be shut down, particularly small mom-and-pop shops which were arbitrarily considered “non-essential”. Everyone needed to listen to the “experts” and the fake news reporters, otherwise, you are a grandma killer (meanwhile, they ignore the actual grandma-killing that the governor of New York perpetrated).
Everyone began to panic and just listen to what they were hearing on their tv or reading on their computers and began to quarantine everyone, not just the people with the virus. The idea to flatten the curve was originally supposed to be about avoiding a healthcare system collapse. We flattened the curve and avoided that, but we still have to be subjected to the same draconian regulations as if we hadn’t. The health system never collapsed and is, at this point, running well below capacity because no one else apart from those with the Chinese virus are going to hospitals (and this, of course, is leading to other deaths due to other causes).
Some on the Left are even insisting on locking things down again for no other reason apart from Trump is gaining ground on Biden and the initial lockdowns haven’t completely led to the total economic collapse of this country. And make no mistake, that is the ONLY reason the Left has for locking things down again.
However, amidst a sea of panicking morons who foolishly believed the fake news media had their best interests at heart comes one country who figured locking down an entire civilization would do far more harm than good in a number of ways.
According to a new study, Sweden’s refusal to follow the herd of blind sheep and lock their country down allowed it to stave off the worst of the pandemic, both in terms of deaths and in terms of economic shrinkage.
The Swedes figured that it would be best to keep shops, businesses, restaurants and schools open, while also adhering to some basic measures such as social distancing and wearing masks, as well as, at most, banning public gatherings of more than 50 people, so that those who wanted to go to work could go to work; those who wanted to go to school could go to school; and those who wanted to visit family could visit family.
Sweden largely kept things normal, with some obvious exceptions, and it has helped them greatly.
“From the start, the Swedish government repeatedly made it crystal clear to the public that the battle against [the Chinese coronavirus] would be a marathon, not a sprint, and that many people would die. With all that starkly presented, the decision was made that (mostly) normal life was favorable to the alternatives, and herd immunity and economic stability would be the result,” reported The Federalist.
I don’t know if you remember, but back before this all started, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was initially in favor of not locking things down and wanted to beat the virus through herd immunity. However, he eventually caved because of the amount of pressure to lock things down, and the UK has paid the price for it.
Sweden, on the other hand, even as others in the Western world lambasted them for this, did not cave and decided to remain open with few restrictions.
As a result, the Swedish economy contracted by 8.6%. While that may not sound like good news at all, it’s considerably less than what other countries in the EU who did lock down managed to accomplish.
The European Union’s average contraction in this period was 11.9% and the countries with the most severe lockdowns such as Spain, France and Italy saw even worse economic contractions of 18.5%, 13.8% and 12.4% respectively.
By not caving to a raging mob of imbeciles, Sweden managed to avoid some of the worst economic contractions in the West, largely saving its economy amidst a seeming global recession.
But not only did Sweden save itself in terms of the economy, it also proved that lockdowns are unnecessary and ineffective in their objective. Here’s what I mean:
According to The Federalist, “In number of deaths, Sweden and Italy provide two completely different case studies. Italy chose some of the most severe lockdowns outside China. But, as Bloomberg reported, ‘on a per-capita basis, Italy’s death toll of more than 35,154 comes to about 600 per 1 million people, as does Sweden’s 5,743.’”
In other words, despite the starkly different approaches to the virus, both Italy and Sweden saw the same amount of per capita deaths per 1 million people. So Italy’s lockdown did nothing to save people.
The lockdown didn’t affect the death toll even a little.
And now, every country is hoping for herd immunity, which Sweden began to work on at the very beginning. The strategy that Boris Johnson initially wanted to apply but got yelled at for wanting to try is the one that everyone now HAS to try, as a vaccine is not likely to come for a long while and many countries have almost completely ruined their economies and cannot really continue like this without inflicting unnecessary long-lasting damage.
The panicking of pretending like the virus was comparable to the black death or that millions upon millions of Americans and people in general were likely going to die (if absolutely nothing was different, which was never a realistic scenario) and that the virus itself was death (as Andrew Cuomo has said it was, though given his actions as governor in recent months, I would take his word for it, with him essentially working for the Grim Reaper) has only led to some of the worst case scenarios for many nations, as tons of people died and the measures taken to avoid that not only did not work, but also crushed their economies.
Almost everyone panicked, believed everything the media was telling them about the virus, believed everything the “experts” were telling them about the virus, and almost everyone acted irrationally with unnecessary and fascistic lockdowns that did nothing but hurt people both financially and health-wise, as suicides went up in this time period, as well as other health problems getting worse.
Almost everyone fell victim to widespread panic, but at least Sweden kept a level head in all this and now, they are ahead of everyone in the world in attaining herd immunity, which will help them return to normal life even sooner.
I would hope we learned our lesson in all this: panicking solves nothing and trusting the fake news media and the “experts” who have an agenda only leads to ruin.

While Democrat-controlled cities are still experiencing riots night after night, supposedly as a result of the police-involved death of George Floyd, there was one person who was executed by a police officer a few nights before George Floyd died and no one has called for any sort of retribution for it.
This man’s name was Ryan Whitaker. Whitaker, according to Arizona Central, had heard a knock at his apartment door one night earlier in the month of May. The knocker, however, was no longer there when Whitaker checked who was at the door.
Later that same week, he heard another knock at his door, ready to answer to any potential danger with his legally-owned 9mm handgun, and opened the door to see who it was, presumably after he checked the peephole to find no one there (as the officers were standing at either side of the door), and decided to open it, quickly reaching for his gun just in case.
One of the police officers shined a flashlight at Whitaker and as soon as he realized it was the police, he put his hands up and began to get on his knees, surrendering to the police.
However, despite this, one of the two officers at the scene, Officer Cooke, who was standing on the other side (and whom Whitaker likely did not realize was there, as he visibly only saw and interacted with the officer that shone a flashlight to his face), was a bit too trigger-happy and fired three rounds into Whitaker (despite the fact that Whitaker had already begun to surrender), causing him to collapse on the ground and eventually die.
Body cam footage (below) from Officer Ferragamo (the one with whom Whitaker interacted) shows these things as they happened.
What prompted this incident was a 911 call from a neighbor who twice called the cops to complain about Whitaker. The first time, he complained to the police about people screaming and it bothered his sleep. The second time, the neighbor alleged that the screaming had turned physical (which was not true).
The Arizona Central reports that the neighbor told the 911 dispatcher: “It could be physical. I could say yeah if that makes anybody hurry on up. Get anybody here faster.”
So the guy was alleging something against his neighbor (bearing false witness) that was not true just to get the cops to show up sooner so the guy can get his sleep. While noisy neighbors can be bothersome, this is definitely crossing a line and the consequences can be plainly seen (not that I place the brunt of the blame on the neighbor, as it was the trigger-happy cop who is largely to blame).
In the body-cam footage, even officer Ferragamo figured out the neighbor was b.s.-ing them, saying “Did you like all that helpful info we got from our complainant? ‘I’m just gonna say yes to all questions to get the officers here faster,’” Ferragamo mocked the neighbor.
Once the officers reached Whitaker’s apartment, they knocked on the door, with Ferragamo saying “Phoenix police,” and, like I said earlier, the pair of officers stood at either side of the door.
Now, I will put a bit of a pause on this to talk about this action for a moment. I have said before that I am not a cop, so I don’t know officer protocol for particular situations (especially since different districts have different policies for different situations). My personal theory here is that, in calls of potential domestic violence, even if the officers figure it’s a load of crap, they have to prioritize their own safety, as one of the possible offenders could be armed and present a threat to the officers as soon as they open the door.
The cops likely did not stand in front of the door, where they could easily be seen through the peephole, because they needed to maintain a safe distance and be at a safe angle to take care of the situation, regardless of whether or not it was actually a domestic violence call.
Like I said, this is my own personal theory, so I don’t know for sure if that was the reason, but I’m willing to give the officers the benefit of the doubt on this, since I really don’t know if that was proper procedure.
In any case, eventually, Whitaker opens the door, visibly only in his underwear, and officer Ferragamo asks him “how are you doing?” As he asked this, Whitaker reached behind his back for his gun, likely not knowing if that was actually an officer or someone who could present a danger to him (and remember, he had heard a knock at his door on a previous night, so he might have been more cautious than he otherwise might’ve been, but I don’t want to pass my own head-canon as judgment).
As Whitaker reached for his gun, things got a bit more hectic, but once Whitaker realized this really was the Phoenix police, he went to surrender. Despite no longer presenting a threat, Cooke fired three rounds into Whitaker, leading Whitaker to collapse on the ground, audibly struggling to breathe, and eventually die.
Now, I will address one thing here: this was a split-second decision, even if it was ultimately the wrong one. In the middle of chaos, the officer failed to realize Whitaker was not a threat. He overreacted and was too quick on the trigger (even Ferragamo, who would’ve been the primary target of Whitaker if Whitaker had intended to be a threat, kept his composure to not fire).
Despite this split-second decision, you can clearly tell Whitaker was getting on his knees and had his hands up. Only once he began this motion did Cooke fire, and there is simply no excuse for that, as Whitaker was very clearly not a threat and cops are trained in trigger-discipline to avoid circumstances exactly like this. Cops are supposed to be better than this, but this guy's overreaction at seeing Whitaker's gun (which was legal) led him to fire unnecessarily. I think he should be fired, at the very least, if not outright charged with homicide (not that I expect such charges to stick, as you will soon see that cops who execute civilians do not always get punished for it).
Phoenix has a higher rate of police shootings per 1 million residents than New York, L.A., and other similar-sized cities, so that goes to show how inept the police are in that city.
Getting back to the body-cam footage, eventually, Whitaker’s girlfriend comes out with her hands up and eventually explains to the police that she and Whitaker were playing a video game and they might have gotten a bit loud about it, though no domestic disturbance was present.
So, yes, the entire situation was avoidable in a number of ways.
However, allow me to get to the main objective of this article: this whole thing happened just days before the George Floyd incident. The Arizona Central only reported this on July 17th, nearly TWO MONTHS after it happened on May 21st. And you and I are only hearing about this in early-to-mid August, roughly two and a half months after this incident happened.
Where was the outrage? Never mind that, WHERE WAS THE COVERAGE?! Where were the protests held in his name? Where are the NBA players demanding justice for Ryan Whitaker? Where are the NBA jerseys that demand you say his name? Where was the national legislation that would reform police departments as a result of this incident?
Why are we only learning about this now and not when it happened, especially as it happened even before the George Floyd thing?
You and I both know the only reason we have never heard of Ryan Whitaker until today: he wasn’t black.
And since he wasn’t black, he was not politically expedient. His death does not bring any politician more donation money. His death does not drive voters to vote for a guy who promises to change the police department. His death does not push the media’s Leftist agenda. His death did not matter. His life did not matter. He was a straight, white man, whom we are told are exclusively the oppressors and abusers and killers, and not oppressed, abused or killed.
Back in early June, when the riots were at some of their worst, I wrote an article where I noted of a couple of instances in which a white man was shot or generally killed by cops and no one batted an eye.
I talked about a white man who was shot because he was car-hopping in a Chicago train station. I talked about Tony Timpa, who died in a similar fashion to George Floyd, being under the knee of a police officer (though I don’t think Timpa was under the influence of drugs or overexcited himself into a heart attack, so it was a bit different).
One I wish I had mentioned back then was the case of Daniel Shaver, a case which can most easily point to a bad cop deciding to straight up execute a man who posed no risk at all to him.
Back in 2016, Daniel Shaver was in Mesa, Arizona for a business trip and was staying at a hotel. Police got the call of “weapon(s) in a hotel room.” As such, a SWAT team was deployed to Shaver’s hotel and while there, they had Shaver, who was intoxicated, at gun point (unclear if they thought he was the one with the guns).
The SWAT officer issued confusing and taunting commands (such as calling Shaver “young man” instead of the standard and less insulting “sir”, or saying: “Shut up! I’m not here to be tactful or diplomatic with you. You listen. You obey.” Even though the situation could have escalated from these things if Shaver had been an actual threat).
Some confusing commands include ordering Shaver to cross his ankles (a common tactic to ensure officers enough reaction time if the suspect intends to pull out a weapon and fire) and then crawling towards the officers (this, however, is not common, according to a CNN law enforcement analyst, for what that’s worth).
Once he got close enough, the officers began shouting again and opened fire on Shaver.
The guy was drunk, unarmed and at no point did he pose a threat to the officers. He was given confusing commands and was repeatedly taunted and berated by an officer clearly drunk with power. He was, for all intents and purposes, executed in that hotel hallway. The officer leading the whole thing got off scot-free with all charges levied against him being dropped.
This happened in 2016, but I only heard about it a little after the George Floyd killing. This was the closest thing to a Nazi or Soviet-style execution that you can get, save for being put up against the wall.
It was brutal, horrific, savage and wrong. It was outright murder but no one cared at the time and no one cares now.
However, I can guarantee one thing: if Daniel Shaver, Ryan Whitaker or Tony Timpa had been black, their stories would’ve been ingrained in this country’s memory. Trayvon Martin’s name is still remembered from back in early 2012. Rodney King’s name, though he was not killed, is still remembered nearly 30 years after that incident. They demand we remember Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Freddy Gray, Michael Brown, but no one cared about Ryan Whitaker, Tony Timpa or Daniel Shaver.
No one’s throwing 70 funerals for Whitaker. No one is demanding justice for Daniel Shaver. No one is demanding police reform for Tony Timpa. These three never got the nationwide coverage that similar circumstances happening to people of color get.
When the cops kill a black person, intentionally or not, justifiably or not, they get demonized and everyone talks about how cops are evil. When the cops kill a white person, intentionally or not, justifiably or not, all they get is crickets.
In the midst of a pandemic, I’m not even sure Whitaker got a funeral following his death, even as Floyd got numerous ones.
The fake news media has an agenda. They are not journalists, but propagandists, and whatever doesn’t help their agenda simply does not get covered. Black people dying helps their agenda. White people dying runs contrary to their agenda.
The fake news is the enemy of the people and no greater bigot exists than a Leftist.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The New York Times is up there with CNN as some of the most vile and disgusting fake news that there is in this country. Truly, the only difference between the two is that CNN is also a cable “news” organization. Seeing how utterly fascistic and communistic the general narrative that is found in the NYT is, it’s not at all surprising to see someone who does not fully support such ideals be bullied and pushed out of the company.
Bari Weiss had been writing for the NYT for the past few years, following the election of Donald Trump, supposedly, according to her, because the Times was so wrong about who would be elected that it clearly needed a better understanding of the country that it covers.
Of course, she herself HATES Trump and has outright alleged he was sympathetic to neo-Nazis (which we shall see is rather hilarious in a moment) and would likely cancel anyone who is pro-Trump were she to have the power (she advocated for censoring Alex Jones), however, due to her not adhering in full with the communistic rhetoric of the company, at least in everything she wanted to write, Weiss has decided to resign from the NYT. In her resignation letter, Weiss utterly crushed the company by exposing precisely who they are: elitist, communist bullies who are wholly intolerant while preaching “tolerance”.
And yes, she is a massive hypocrite, but she is ripping the NYT, so let’s hear her out for a second, while still keeping in mind the fact that she is just as despicable.
In her resignation letter, Weiss lambasts the Times for being a paper more concerned with getting clicks from people on Twitter than actually being remotely objective or journalistically proper. “Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions.”
In essence, Weiss is accusing the NYT of writing stories that will get them on Twitter’s “trending” list rather than writing stories of importance and significance to the vast majority of the country.
Later, Weiss takes note of some of the personal experiences she has had while working for the communist paper: “My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again.’ Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly ‘inclusive’ one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.”
One, I told you that it was rather hilarious that she essentially called Trump a Nazi when she herself had been called that. Two, this is not at all unexpected behavior from communists. They HATE anyone who does not think like them and in this day and age when literal crime is hardly punished, such people feel comfortable showing their truly monstrous side. Communists are hateful bullies who somehow have deluded themselves into thinking they are angels doing God’s work. They are awful people, the embodiment of intolerance and hatred itself.
To me, it is EXTREMELY ironic that ANYONE at the New York Times would accuse someone just slightly right of Marx (and Weiss isn’t exactly Ronald Reagan) to be a Nazi when the publication itself has published the following article: “THE ART OF PROPAGANDA – By Adolf Hitler,” written June 22nd, 1941.
The New York Times published a piece by Adolf Hitler on the same day as Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi operation to invade the Soviet Union, and all-the-while the guy was killing Jews and other political opponents in concentration camps.
I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that the NYT chose to publish a piece by Adolf Hitler, or the following piece, written on November 21st, 1922:
Headline: “NEW POPULAR IDOL RISES IN BAVARIA; Hitler Credited With Extraordinary Powers of Swaying Crowds to His Will. FORMS GRAY-SHIRTED ARMY Armed With Blackjacks and Revolvers and Well Disciplined, They Obey Orders Implicitly. LEADER A REACTIONARY is Anti Red and Anti-Semitic, and Demands Strong Government for a United Germany.”
Yes, long headline, but this was a different time. At any rate, the piece later on said the following:
“But several reliable, well-informed sources confirmed the idea that Hitler’s anti-Semitism was not so genuine or violent as it sounded, and that he was merely using anti-Semitic propaganda as a bait to catch masses of followers and keep them aroused, enthusiastic and inline for the time when his organization is perfected and sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.”
We often times rip “experts” and supposed, anonymous “sources” from people who act in bad faith, but I don’t think anyone could top “our sources say that Hitler is not as anti-Semitic or violent as people think he is.”
This is on record for The New York Times, and it’s not like featuring egregious personalities is anything new for them. They have, just in the last decade, allowed for op-eds from Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin to be published on their paper. Hitler, Erdogan and Putin all enjoy or have enjoyed a great deal of liberty and even veneration from The New York Times.
So again, for anyone in the NYT to accuse anyone else of being a Nazi is EXTREMELY RICH (though for Weiss to play victim to such attacks is equally rich, considering she does the same to Trump).
Returning to Weiss’ resignation letter, she noted that “if a person’s ideology is in keeping with the new orthodoxy, they and their work remain unscrutinized. Everyone else lives in fear of the digital thunderdome. Online venom is excused so long as it is directed at the proper targets.”
These people claim to be “tolerant” and “inclusive” but have an outright allergic reaction to a Republican Senator writing that we should use the military to defeat the riots. They claim to be tolerant people while not tolerating anyone’s opinion should said opinion dissent from the pre-approved one. If you even remotely do not share much hatred for Trump, you are compared to Hitler himself (again, an extremely rich thing for anyone at the paper to do).
Anyone right of Karl Marx is considered a danger, a Nazi, and less than human. These people go around calling other people bigots when there are no bigger bigots than them.
At any rate, Weiss continued by excoriating the paper, taking note that Tom Cotton’s op-ed cost two people their jobs, all-the-while the paper celebrates an interview with a disgusting anti-Semite and conspiracy theorist who, to Weiss’s words, “believes in lizard Illuminati.”
Of course, considering the paper is willing to have an op-ed from Adolf Hitler, it’s not really so surprising that they have such a high regard for known anti-Semites.
Furthermore, Weiss writes: “The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people. This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its ‘diversity’; the doxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany.”
Considering the history revisionism that the Times is involved in with its “1619 project”, it’s not at all surprising that these people live in the land of Looney Tunes, and even then, I would assume Buggs Bunny has more of a sense of reason than the people most often featured on that communist publication. Time and time again, Buggs Bunny showed considerably more wit than any of the people I have seen write for the Times, if I’m honest. I wouldn’t be surprised if he could trick them by flipping a sign that says “commie season.”
They are people who adamantly hate this country and spend their lives and careers excoriating it. That they compare America and Nazi Germany for their “caste system” is no surprise to someone who expects such nonsensical and offensive crap from human garbage like the NYT.
Anyway, Weiss concludes with a few things, such as a “set of rules” for writing for the NYT, including “Rule One: Speak your mind at your own peril. Rule Two: Never risk commissioning a story that goes against the narrative. Rule Three: Never believe an editor or publisher who urges you to go against the grain. Eventually, the publisher will cave to the mob, the editor will get fired or reassigned, and you’ll be hung out to dry.”
One does not have free speech when writing for the New York Times. They either speak the way the Times wants them to speak, whether willingly or not, or they can find themselves in an unemployment office.
This, my friends, is communism. Not that I needed to remind you of that.
In the end, Weiss quotes Adolph Ochs, former owner of the NYT, in a famous statement he made in 1896: “to make of the columns of The New York Times a forum for the consideration of all questions of public importance, and to that end to invite intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion.”
Ochs wouldn’t even be allowed to write for the Times’ opinion piece nowadays with such a mentality, let alone be allowed to own the paper. Such an opinion runs contrary to the Left’s. The idea that people be allowed to have differing opinions and, worse yet, be allowed a platform through which to express such opinions is considered a threat to democracy itself in the minds of the politically insane.
Of course, Weiss herself has hypocritically gone against Ochs’ words in her trying to cancel Alex Jones, and I doubt she would be willing to have an honest debate with a pro-Trumper, but at least she gives us some ammo to use against the Times.
The NYT is garbage. Sane people are better off not reading it or contributing to it. While I do not exactly have much sympathy for Weiss, considering she herself has acted in that exact same manner, with the exact same attacks thrown at Trump and his supporters, I am at the very least glad that she attacked the NYT like she did on the way out.
Love it when the Left goes after its own.

It’s late June of an election year, so it’s no surprise at all to see multiple Left-wing polls claiming that Trump is toast; that he’s going to lose and lose badly; that he is headed for a crushing defeat; that the walls are closing in and the American people are tired of Donald Trump. It’s the exact same song and dance we heard throughout 2016. Remind me, what was the result of that election?
Perhaps the only difference between 2016 and 2020 is that the media has fooled some Trump supporters into believing he is on the path to defeat. However, I highly doubt that’s the case at all for a number of reasons.
First of all, we were hearing this same bullcrap from the same people four years ago. Eddie Zipperer has a great thread on Twitter with numerous articles from 2016 that showed Hillary Clinton with 85-99% chance at winning, multiple electoral map results that showed she would win at minimum 300 electoral votes, and just article after article from the fake news media saying that Donald Trump had no chance in hell of becoming President of the United States. Four years later, they’re trying to tell us that the guy whom they said had no chance of winning but still won once again has no chance of winning.
Reuters had Clinton’s chances of getting elected at 90%. The Monday before the election, CNN had Clinton’s chances of winning at over 90%. MSNBC had a “scientist” predict that Clinton had a 99% chance of being elected. Stanford University said the same.
The Huffington Post predicted that Clinton would win 323 electoral votes, with Princeton predicting the same. Joy Reid predicted Clinton winning 340. Moody’s Analytics predicted Clinton would win 332 electoral votes. FiveThirtyEight had Clinton winning as few as 375 electoral votes and as many as 471.
Day in and day out, for months on end until even election day itself, these “journalists” were all of the belief that Hillary Clinton was practically DESTINED to become President of the United States.
And what do we see today? Fox News having Biden winning Florida by 9 percentage points, Georgia by 2, North Carolina by 2 and TEXAS by 1. Redfield & Wilton saying Biden is winning in Pennsylvania by 10 points, Michigan by 11, North Carolina by 6, Florida by 4 and Arizona by 4. CNBC saying that Biden is 9 points ahead nationally. Reuters saying that Biden is ahead 10 points nationally. The Economist/YouGov saying Biden is winning by 8 points nationally. NYT/Sienna showing Biden winning 14% nationally. Fox News showing Biden winning 12% nationally. Quinnipiac showing Biden winning 8% nationally, etc., etc.
It’s the exact same song and dance and roughly the same numbers we were seeing back in 2016. And you’re telling me that this time it’s somehow different?
Let me tell you what is actually different this time around that will affect the election: Trump has a record now.
Back in 2016, he ran on policy but could hardly back it up with things from his past because he ran a real estate empire and was a reality tv star. People trusted him with the economy (still do in most polls, and that is always the biggest issue) because of his experience but had to just trust his word for the rest of the job as POTUS and he delivered. He delivered on the economy, that’s for sure. He delivered on being the most pro-life president. He delivered on his stance against illegal immigration (not that he got any help from the GOP) and despite the troubles we face today, I trust that he can still take care of it all (there are hundreds of DOJ investigations into the people tearing down statues, so don’t tell me he isn’t being a law and order president).
Like I said towards the beginning of the pandemic: the virus cannot be blamed on Trump, and neither can the actions of other people. The virus itself came from China because they are dirty liars opportunistically setting the world on fire. The lockdown orders came from the governors individually, and not even all the states decided to lock things down. The economy is not doing great right now, but it was for three years under Trump and he will do it again, provided we open back up in full (and we have to at one point or another).
As far as the cases go, that has more to do with increased testing than the virus being out of control. And considering the CDC chief said that Chinese coronavirus cases could be ten times higher than confirmed cases, that only means that the mortality rate is a tenth of what it is today: 0.26%, so if the chief is right, the mortality rate should actually be 0.026%, which is considerably lower than the flu.
In other words, we have absolutely no reason at all to be shutting things down or keeping things shut down. Once people begin realizing this, the economy will make a great comeback and that will definitely boost Trump’s chances at re-election.
While the last few months haven’t exactly been great for Trump (and 2020 has really been a huge mess for basically everyone), I’m not at all convinced that Trump is headed for an electoral defeat, especially considering who his opponent is.
Granted, Biden is really helped by the fact that he is being kept hidden in the basement for the most part, but at one point or another, he will have to debate Donald Trump and will actually have to make public appearances more often. That is something he nor the Democrats can allow to happen which is part of the reason they are so adamant about going back to the virus as a main talking point (and because covering wanton destruction of property and violence coming from Leftists won’t exactly help convince voters to vote for Leftist Democrats).
Of course, the biggest threat to Donald Trump right now isn’t Joe Biden but voter fraud in the form of mail-in ballots, which the Left is all too happy about implementing for this election considering how absurdly easy it would be for them to cheat through this system. But otherwise, I don’t see how Biden beats Trump (which isn’t to say that he couldn’t and this is no license for people not to vote for Trump).
Now, one last thing I want to talk about actually has something to do with what Zipperer said at the end of his Twitter thread regarding all of the fake polls about Clinton. Zipperer said: “These are all the same ‘experts’ now making all the same predictions because their predictions aren’t about being right; their predictions are about gaslighting you out of voting.”
And he definitely is right. These polls aren’t meant to be accurate. They are meant to make you feel demoralized, like you are headed for crushing defeat, and that there is no real point in going out to vote because defeat is assured. They are meant to keep you from voting by making you feel there would be no point in spending hours at the polling booth if your guy is just going to lose anyway. The ironic thing about this is that I believe this is a double-edged sword. It might get some people demoralized and believe there is no point in voting for Trump, but it also leaves some Democrats overconfident and believe victory is assured so there is no point in spending those same hours at the polling booth if their guy is going to win anyway.
We just have to make sure that our side does not get demoralized by what the fake news media is claiming is the reality at hand, when that’s not at all the case. What reason does any one of us have to believe the same fake news polls from the same fake news sources that have for the past four years tried to insist to us that Trump had no chance at getting nominated, elected, cheated to get elected, was planning on cheating to get re-elected through either Russia, Ukraine or China, and now has no chance at getting re-elected?
Why would anyone believe the words of known liars and biased, agenda-driven deceivers?
“A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish.”
