I hardly need a poll to tell me what I know to be true: the fake news media is far more divisive than Trump ever could be. However, that does not mean I do not smile at seeing many people agreeing with me on this issue.
Recently, a Morning Consult poll was released, asking 2,435 voters (so a large sample size) if Trump and the media have done more to divide the country than unite it. According to the poll, an overwhelming 64% of registered voters “said the press has done more to divide the country than unite it since Trump took office…”
56% said the same about Trump, but we’ll get to that momentarily.
The poll also shows percentages according to political party affiliation. According to the poll, 88% of Democrats said Trump was divisive, but a surprising 46% said the press was divisive.
With Independents, 67% said the media was divisive, compared to 54% who said that of Trump.
With Republicans, 80% said the press was divisive and 25% said Trump was.
Many of these numbers are pretty fascinating and good, in my opinion.
That 88% of Dems saying Trump is divisive does not surprise me. Frankly, what surprises me is that it’s not in the 90 percentile. However, that 46% of Dems saying the press was divisive is quite incredible and says an awful lot about the lack of credibility the fake news media has with their own target demographic, who should theoretically always support them.
It’s not exactly a majority, being less than 50%, but it’s incredibly close. As for Independents, who tend to go one way or the other, depending on the person (Sanders is technically an Independent, though he’s a far-Left Independent), they tend to be people who are dissatisfied with both parties, and given the Left’s recent behavior, I suspect there are more Independents today than even a few years ago, given the recent Walk Away movement.
67% of Independents saying the media is divisive is not a good thing for Democrats. And while 54% also say Trump is divisive, that’s still far less than those who point towards the media’s divisiveness.
As far as Republicans go, neither number really surprises me too much. I would think more than just 80% of Republicans would say the media is divisive, and I know very well that there are NeverTrump Republicans out there, so that 25% is actually fairly low and also a good sign for Trump.
Another Morning Consult/Politico poll back in July found that “28 percent of voters said they had ‘a lot’ of confidence in the presidency – more than twice the 13 percent who said the same of television news and double the 14 percent who said the same of newspapers.”
But these numbers generally point out what should really be crystal clear to anyone paying attention: the media is largely responsible for the divisiveness in our country.
Now, Trump being President, and being one who pushes back against the Left, naturally will also cause some divisiveness. The only reason Democrats and the media could say today that Bush was less divisive is because he was nowhere near as much of a fighter against the Left as Trump is. Let’s not forget that much of Bush’s early presidency was marred with Democrats being bitter about the Supreme Court deciding the election, thinking it was stolen from them. (ring any bells?)
The biggest reason Trump is characterized as divisive is because he actually fights back against the Democrats and the media, who have gotten used to Republicans quaking in their boots and apologizing for breathing.
But in this rhetoric of Trump’s divisiveness, and with pretty much every other rhetoric the media throws out there, it is the media that is largely to blame for the division in our country.
Who can blame people for thinking this way, when you have Don Lemon calling for people (aka Trump and Republicans) to stop demonizing people and in the same breath he demonizes white people and Republicans? When you have Julia Ioffe saying Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS has? When you have people calling Trump “Hitler” and Trump’s supporters “Nazis”? When you have people defending the vandalism and destruction that Antifa causes, calling them “angels”? When you have people defending acts of violence and/or harassment of Republican members of Congress or Trump’s staff?
Who can blame people for believing the media divides people when the media fought tooth and nail to spread lies and slander about a Supreme Court nominee with zero evidence? When the media pins the blame of any shooting anywhere on Trump and Republicans? When the media supports the narrative that Trump colluded with Russia, despite zero evidence ever having turned up? When the media defends one of the most crooked Presidents and presidential nominees we have ever seen in Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton respectively?
Who can blame people for believing this way when the media calls for others to tone down on the rhetoric, and in the same breath will tone up their OWN rhetoric? When over 90% of the coverage of Trump is negative?
And these are all just examples that come to immediate mind. I’m sure there are countless other examples of the media being divisive that I am forgetting. But it’s because of all of these examples, both the ones I listed and the ones I am certainly forgetting, that the people cannot come to trust what the media tells them.
Now, earlier, I mentioned that I would get to the 56% of people who said Trump was divisive. Again, he’s the President. The position tends to naturally divide people, at least to some extent. But the arguments made against him that he’s divisive ultimately come down to “he’s not apologizing like every other Republican ever”. Sure, that is never said outright, but that is ultimately the Left’s complaint with Trump. He doesn’t apologize for being who he is, for saying what he says and for doing what he’s doing. And it’s part of this defiance of the status quo of Republicans apologizing for daring to take a breath of air that makes Trump as successful and popular as he is.
Of course, that is only part of it, but it is a substantial part. And it’s this success that comes with his attitude that further drives the Left to insanity. Nothing they have tried has worked. No narrative, no rhetoric; no tried and true method of destroying Republicans has even made a dent. If anything, these attacks have had the opposite effect. The attacks were supposed to tear his approval numbers to shreds. He sits at the mid to high-40s, with some having him at 50% approval, which has him higher than Obama was at this point in his own presidency.
Granted, much of that is due to the fact that Trump is actually Making America Great Again, but the constant attacks against Trump are what drive his supporters closer to him.
I have often said that Trump’s election victory, and his subsequent success post-election, have driven the Left to near insanity, if they aren’t already there. They had a thermonuclear reaction to Trump’s victory, the effects of which we are still seeing and will continue to see for a very long time, most likely. This being the case, who can blame people for trying to distance themselves from what is highly radioactive and toxic?
64% of voters said the media is dividing the country. In all honesty, that number should be at 100% or somewhere close to that. Of course, that would be living in a perfect world where people don’t buy into the crap the Left sells and we do not live in such a world. But for this being an imperfect world, I will gladly take 64% of people believing and KNOWING the media is dividing the country.
I just hope that one day, that number will be very, very low, and we can have a news-media world that reports the truth rather than distorts it – that reflects narratives and beliefs, not create them.

If you know me, you know I do not tend to insult people. I always argue Leftists’ dumb arguments but never really call those people dumb. I call them out for what they are, but typically without insulting them. And if I insult them, it’s typically a part of a joke, to some extent.
As for Don Lemon, I will not insult him, since that’s beneath me. However, this needs to be made completely clear: he is, without a shadow of a doubt, a disgustingly hypocritical slimeball.
Recently, Don Lemon said some things that will leave anyone to cringe in utter disgust with the man.
First, on a CNN panel on Monday, he argued that he doesn’t see Democrats killing people because of political motivations. That the mail-bomber and the Tree of Life shooter were both right-wingers and that that is to blame for the violence.
When the issue of the shooter who tried to kill Republicans came up, he argued that there is no equivalency there. No comparison. Of course, that being bullcrap, Lemon does not explain why it’s different.
Second, talking with Chris Cuomo, Lemon said “we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right. And we have to start doing something about them… There is no white guy ban.”
In the same sentence, in the same breath, Lemon urges people not to demonize others, all-the-while demonizing white people and Republicans. It’s truly sickening what goes on in this guy’s mind and what comes out of his mouth. So allow me to slowly, but surely dismantle this guy’s arguments and properly call him out for exactly what he is.
Let’s begin with the argument that he doesn’t see Democrats killing people and that the socialist shooter is different from the synagogue shooter and mail-bomber.
First of all, even this hypocrite can’t tell me the socialist shooter wasn’t trying to kill people. The socialist shooter didn’t bring his AR-15 to the baseball field and start shooting Republicans because he wanted to have a civil conversation about healthcare. He went there because Bernie Sanders said prior to the shooting that Republicans were going to kill millions of people by getting rid of healthcare or changing it in the least.
The socialist shooter was reportedly shouting “this is for healthcare!” while he was shooting. Miraculously, that nut-job didn’t kill anyone. But he definitely tried to, given he was FIRING AT OTHER PEOPLE!
Second of all, the mail-bomber already had a history of violence, and even sending bombs in the mail in the past. Not to mention that the bombs were inoperable. They didn’t blow up and were not designed to. If Lemon can’t see Democrats killing people because the socialist shooter didn’t actually kill anyone, then by that logic, we can’t see the mail bomber killing anyone because he didn’t. Lemon’s argument here is largely based on the fortunate technicality that the socialist shooter didn’t manage to kill anyone. But let’s not forget that he was definitely trying to and sent Rep. Steve Scalise to the hospital.
Third of all, the Tree of Life shooter was not a right-winger. He was an ardent anti-Trumper who hated the fact that Trump was so pro-Jew and pro-Israel. That line of thinking falls more in line with anti-Semites like Louis Farrakhan, Linda Sarsour, Al Sharpton, etc., who are all Leftists.
Beyond the socialist shooter, there are countless other stories of Leftists threatening the lives of anyone they disagree with and committing acts of violence. I’ve already written about that sort of thing TWICE, listing the rap sheet from Breitbart about the number of Leftist and media-incited/ignored/acceptable acts of violence against the Right.
I don’ trust that any of them wouldn’t go as far as to kill someone they disagree with should they have the chance to. That’s one of the reasons we have the second amendment and why we carry guns, just in case someone threatens and fully intends to take our lives.
If they are willing to actually terrorize people they disagree with, the next step is to actually kill them. The only political groups that have shown this tendency and attitude are Leftist political groups like Black Lives Matter, some of whom HAVE gone as far as to kill cops, and Antifa, who are one successful killing away from being labeled a terrorist organization the likes of ISIS, Hamas, etc.
Finally, let’s not forget that a Democrat HAS ACTUALLY KILLED a Republican in the past. Need I remind you that John Wilkes Booth successfully assassinated Republican President Abraham Lincoln? Booth was from the Democrat South, which hated that Lincoln was fighting them over their supposed “right” to own a human being.
So if Lemon can’t see a Democrat killing anyone for political reasons, he is completely ignorant of history. Not something that surprises me, but something that must be pointed out here.
Now, let’s move on to the racially-charged comment that honestly makes me, a Latino man, sick to my stomach.
The hypocrisy of that comment leaves me in utter shock. Not because I didn’t expect it – I certainly did - but because within the same breath, he calls on people to stop demonizing others and proceeds to demonize others.
What he means by that statement is that Trump and Republicans need to stop demonizing the media and the Left and just take that same demonization themselves. The media definitely doesn’t need to stop demonizing Republicans. Democrats definitely don’t need to stop demonizing Republicans. The Left doesn’t need to tone down on the inflammatory rhetoric, but Trump and Republicans do. Matter of fact, slimeballs like Lemon will flat out deny that their rhetoric is in any way inflammatory.
I don’t really know what else to say. Lemon’s comment speaks for itself. Aside from being hugely hypocritical, it is disgustingly racist. Saying that white people are a terror threat? How is this guy allowed on television? Trying to bring up the supposed “Muslim” ban (which doesn’t ban Muslims, just people from a list of Islamic-terror-related countries, and they know that, but they don’t care) and suggesting that maybe there should be a “white guy” ban?
Do you see now why I call him a hypocritical slimeball? His rhetoric is more inflammatory than he could claim Trump’s is, his arguments are illogical and flat out racist, and he, as well as the entirety of CNN, all believe what he is saying is acceptable and even right and correct.
And this comes in the same week that Far-Left writer Julia Ioffe said, on CNN, that Trump has “radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
She later “apologized” by saying she was “exaggerating”. But that, of course, leads us to believe she fully believes Trump has and is radicalizing people much in the same way ISIS does.
These two are not the only ones at CNN (or the broader Fake News media, for that matter) who have claimed Trump is to blame for the actions of the mail-bomber and synagogue shooter and is to blame for the current political climate.
But in doing all of this, apart from dodging the truth about those two nut-jobs (mail-bomber having a criminal history and the shooter being anti-Trump), they use the same inflammatory rhetoric they claim Trump is using, but even more so.
These people are unapologetic about their rhetoric. If they were, they wouldn’t be using it. For all their claims that Trump is dividing the nation, in reality, it is them who are doing that.
Trump, after the Tree of Life shooting, decided to go to Pittsburgh. The Left’s response? Attacking him, saying he shouldn’t be there. Trump, after the mail-bombing suspect was caught, gave a strong speech condemning his actions. The Left’s response? Trump is not being sincere.
While Trump’s use of “enemy of the people” to describe the FAKE news media (I capitalize the word fake because people tend to omit that part) might be inflammatory, it is nonetheless true. The fake news media constantly lies about everything, but that is the least of their sins that label them as the “enemy of the people”. Apart from straight up lying to people, they constantly label those they disagree with as racist, bigot, homophobe, etc. They label others as Nazis and fascists. They call Trump Hitler and a WaPo article even said he’s worse than Hitler.
In this labeling, they label everyone who supports Trump as a Nazi. Everyone who even slightly disagrees with them on anything as a Nazi. And Lemon, right here, is labeling those he disagrees with (and white people in general) as terror threats.
These people are filled to the brim with hatred. They hate Trump for everything he does and manages to do. They hate us for having ever defied their narcissistic behinds and choosing to support him. And in this hatred, they excuse actual threats and acts of violence against conservatives and right-wingers, all-the-while insisting it is us who are the real threat to democracy, to America, to people.
As human beings, I don’t consider the fake news media to be my enemy. As a Christian, I don’t do that. But as a political commentator, someone who wants what is best for the country, I consider them the enemy of the state.
Everything they want works towards the systemic dismantling of America as founded. That’s what the 8 years of Obama were all about. That’s what Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, and every other Democrat is about. The fundamental destruction of the United States and the fundamental change towards a socialist nation in the likes of China, Venezuela, Soviet Russia, etc.
What they want is dangerous, and what they spew is dangerous. No, I would never harm any of them and anyone who wishes harm upon them, I disavow and no longer consider them conservatives because a true conservative would never want or do that.
But it truly must be understood that these people don’t care for America. THAT is what makes them the enemy of the people.
As for Lemon himself, I have nothing else to say. He’s a disgusting, hypocritical slimeball. I only have respect for him in that I respect his life and his right to his own opinion. Apart from that, he does not get nor deserve any sort of respect from anyone, let alone me.
I think he is someone in dire need of Christ. Looking into his eyes, I see someone who is dead inside. A typical trait for those who do not have faith in the Lord, and particularly for those on the Left. I sincerely hope he finds Christ. That is the best I can wish for him.

Over the weekend, an anti-Semitic (not to mention very anti-Trump, which we’ll get to later) nut-job shot up the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, reportedly shouting a phrase long-used by anti-Semites: “all Jews must die.”
The killer (who will not be named as to avoid inadvertently giving him any sort of fame or "glory") killed 11 people in the massacre.
But with this having been a mass shooting, the Left jumped at the chance to blame Trump for this. However, there exists one massive problem that the Left simply could not hope to overcome.
Actually, there are a couple of problems, but one of them ties into the other.
First, and perhaps least important of the two: the shooter was anti-Trump. He had even tweeted: “There is no #MAGA, as long as there is a kike infestation.” You can tell the second problem is quite important and a bit overwhelming for the Left if THIS problem is considered the less important one of the two.
The guy was anti-Trump largely because of the second problem the Left faces in their rhetoric and narrative to blame Trump: Trump has been the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel President in American history.
Let’s begin with Trump’s statement following the shooting regarding anti-Semitism: “Anti-Semitism and the widespread persecution of Jews represents one of the ugliest and darkest features in human history. Anti-Semitism must be condemned and confronted everywhere and anywhere it appears.”
This is a strong statement totally disavowing any sort of anti-Semitism in America and pushing hard against it. But that’s not all. Recently, he even said that whomever seeks the destruction of the Jews, we (America) would seek THOSE PEOPLE’S destruction.
Plus, let’s not forget that Trump did what other Presidents before him only promised to do: he moved the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.
Let’s not forget that Trump has, throughout the 2016 campaign and beyond, been a great friend of Jewish people and a great friend for Israel.
Let’s not forget that Trump cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority, which is hell-bent in taking over Jerusalem and exterminating the Jews via acts of terrorism.
Let’s not forget that Trump dismantled and completely tore apart the Iran nuclear deal, which is not only an action that greatly benefits the U.S., but also ensures Israel’s most notorious enemy does not get more and more money from America to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.
Let’s not forget that Trump deported a Nazi in hiding when both Bush and Obama could have, but failed or did not care to do.
Trump has been very friendly towards Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and has overall been a great friend of Israel.
To label Donald Trump as an anti-Semite because of the actions by an anti-Semitic, anti-Trump nut-job is asinine and wrong.
That is particularly the case when the people who label Trump as an anti-Semite are some of the very same people who defend or ignore Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic ramblings, and who have long stressed that Israel be contained and that it bow to its Palestinian enemies.
Barack Obama, in the aftermath of the terrorist attack, tweeted: “We grieve for the Americans murdered in Pittsburgh. All of us have to fight the rise of anti-Semitism and hateful rhetoric against those who look, love, or pray differently. And we have to stop making it so easy for those who want to harm the innocent to get their hands on a gun.”
Ignoring the obvious and pathetic call for stricter gun control laws (which never help anyone and only increase the likelihood of these things happening), this is the same guy who has been photographed smiling next to Louis Farrakhan, who recently said he was not anti-Semite, but “anti-termite”, basically dehumanizing Jews and labeling as nothing more than a pest to be rid of.
This is the same guy who worked towards making a deal with Iran to give them billions of dollars “to build roads and bridges”, which would be the most laughable pile of b.s. if that pile of b.s. hadn’t been so dangerous and hadn’t likely led Iran to accelerate their nuclear program.
In stark contrast with Donald Trump, Obama never was much of a friend to Israel. Quite the opposite could even be argued.
With what Donald Trump has done for Jewish people and for Israel, the Left cannot realistically and successfully label him as an anti-Semite.
While the desire to build a wall in the southern border could be misconstrued as being racist (it isn’t, even a little), they cannot misconstrue anything Trump says and/or does as being anti-Semitic.
What he has done as POTUS is greatly beneficial to Israel and the Jewish people, and that is not bound to end. The only Jewish people who are against Trump right now are simply Leftist partisan hacks who never liked him in the first place and barely even appear to be faithful Jews, considering one of them appeared to not have even liked Trump moving the embassy to Israel. (*ahem* Julia Ioffe saying she hopes the embassy move was “worth it” when attacking Jews who voted for Trump *ahem*).
And this is all without even focusing on the fact that the reason the shooter shot up the synagogue was because he was ticked off at Trump for being too Jew-friendly. So the media can’t even characterize the guy as having been right-winger or a Trump supporter because he was outspokenly anti-Trump due to the POTUS being so pro-Israel and pro-Jew.
At the end of the day, what the Left wants from this is not at all what is going to happen. This, alongside the mail bombings of the previous week, is supposed to characterize Trump as being culpable for the dangerous political climate we live in. This shooting, not having been political but rather religious, can’t do that.
Not to mention that since Trump is very pro-Israel, he cannot realistically be characterized as anti-Semitic. Sure, the Left could try and still blame him (they will certainly do that), but when the rhetoric that Trump is anti-Semitic falls flat on its face because of its absurdity and false nature, they will try to focus a little more on the gun and call for more gun control.
I, for one, hope they will continue to try and characterize Trump as anti-Semitic. It makes my job easier to flat out deny their claims and make counter-arguments with undeniable-on-all-sides facts.
Let’s see if the Left takes the bait on this one and continues with this asinine rhetoric.
“’I ask, then, has God rejected His people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin.'”

Some time ago, I wrote an article talking about how insanely hypocritical it was for Democrats and Leftists to say that they are “doing the Lord’s work” or something to that extent when opposing Trump, or simply being their Leftist selves. Well, that also applies to establishment Republicans who for some reason feel as though they can speak for God now.
In an interview with CNN, John Kasich said the following:
“You know, we have a caravan coming north. We don’t want all those people coming across our border, and there are ways to deal with it. I believe if we could check those who are legitimately in need of asylum, could be vetted before they even get to the border. But you know what? We’re born in America. You know how lucky we are to be born in America and not be born in Guatemala where they would say to your daughter, you know, if you don’t do what we want, we will rape your daughter or we will kill your son if he’s not a drug mule? Now they’re marching north, and you know what? It could easily have been all of us, that we’re in the caravan, that we’re marching north trying to save our families and save our children… If we have been spared… by the grace of God, let us be appreciative, let us count our blessings, and let us reach out to those who have less. And let’s stop putting up walls around ourselves and not understanding the plight, the trouble, and the problems of others. It is not right. And the Lord doesn’t want it…”
That is a lot to cover, so let’s go little by little. Overall, I both agree and disagree with what he is saying.
People born in the U.S. SHOULD count their blessings for being born in the greatest nation on Earth. And we SHOULD try and help people who need help. In fact, doing so is very much a Christian thing to do.
However, there is a difference between helping people and being forced to take care of them.
Not to mention that the border wall isn’t meant to drive away immigrants. It’s meant to drive away ILLEGAL immigrants.
John Kasich believes that we should “help” these people. The problem comes in the fact that it’s likely dangerous people, like members of MS-13, are part of this caravan. Letting these people in means many, and I mean MANY, dangerous people seeing our compassion and exploiting it, entering the country and hurting Americans.
We should not be helping people if that comes at the expense of America and Americans. And we certainly should not be guilt-tripped into helping people who very well could come in to exploit our system at best and harm Americans at worst.
Besides, let’s not ignore that we do help people, or at least their countries of origin. We give over $120 million to Honduras alone annually (though that number is bound to come down after this). So our government does try and help other countries.
But it shouldn’t fall on us to babysit them. It shouldn’t fall on us to take these people in, particularly in this way, and sacrifice Americans’ livelihoods, jobs, etc. We have to take care of our people first, and that’s not what the Democrats and establishment Republicans seem to want.
We especially should not be made to believe that it is our fault that other countries are poorer than us. Socialism is killing Venezuela. It’s also slowly, but surely killing other countries as well. I’ve mentioned in the past that the only time Argentina was prosperous was when it abandoned socialism at least economically, through deregulation and such.
We are as rich and plentiful as we are because our capitalist system of government and economics are built to help people be prosperous. Key word “help”. It doesn’t guarantee or make it a right that people be prosperous. You have the right to the PURSUIT of happiness, not a right to given happiness.
But let’s focus a bit more on Kasich bringing God into the mix. He claims that God doesn’t want us to surround ourselves in walls. He’s wrong on this as well. You have to keep in mind what the wall is meant to do. Like I said earlier, it’s not meant to keep immigrants out. It’s meant to keep ILLEGAL immigrants out.
It’s meant to secure our border and protect our people. It’s a national security issue just as much as an immigration issue. Not to speak for God, but I believe He would want us to be safe. After all, He instructed and led Nehemiah to build a wall too. And Jerusalem currently has a wall that keeps Hamas and other Islamic terrorists out of the promised land (that was promised to the Jews, not Muslims or any other type of Gentile).
Why have those walls? To protect the people inside. That’s what Trump’s border wall is meant to do.
We are a country that welcomes immigrants. Heck, we ARE a nation of immigrants. But the difference between the immigrants that came from Europe and the ones that are marching to our border is that the world was far different, with far different laws and dangers to be met.
Not to mention that the pilgrims set out for America to be free to express their religious beliefs without fear of persecution from the Crown.
On the other hand, these illegals are fleeing their crappy countries to enter the country illegally and forcefully, very much like an invading force.
A border wall can stop such an invading force, and there is no honest person who should oppose prioritizing the safety of our people.
I won’t be too harsh on Kasich here because he is not completely wrong with what he’s saying. He’s wrong about the purpose of wanting a wall. He’s certainly wrong about what he thinks Trump’s intentions are with a wall. But he’s not wrong that we should help people.
However, that’s what we’re already doing. Allowing an invading force to enter the country like this will not help those people and certainly will not help us. If we don’t help ourselves, how could we possibly help others?
Regarding the caravan itself, I have already written an article surrounding that topic, so there’s not much else for me to say that would be too different from what I said in that article.
The larger point I wanted to make here is that Kasich is wrong in believing God doesn’t want a border wall. I won’t claim to know what God does or does not want. I cannot fully understand what God wants because I cannot fully understand Him, being one of His creations with a limited mind. However, I do believe He wants us to be safe from the dangers of this world and a border wall would help towards that end.
Not to mention that, in order to help people, they also have to help themselves. The governments of Central America, maybe with some exceptions, are largely central in their power. Meaning that government is everything and they keep expanding it, bringing in more socialism into the mix. We want to help other countries, but those countries also have to do their part in implementing a system where they are not reliant on us for so much.
I’m all for helping others. But that help should not be a one-way street. That help should not be rewarded with being invaded by illegals, likely many of whom look to exploit our system all-the-while trashing it and us, and maybe even harming people by raping young girls and/or killing them.
America and Americans must always come first. I want to help Americans first. Otherwise, how could we help anyone else?

I feel compelled to say this right now: What I will mostly be talking about is largely a conspiracy theory. As such, it should not be taken to be the absolute truth. However, the reason for me to write this is because the timing and the magnitude of this targeting of Democrats is highly suspicious to me and I have some theories to go along with these stories.
As you read this article, please keep in mind that these are merely unproven thoughts and theories that may never even be proven.
Over the last few days, a number of suspicious packages have been delivered to prominent members of the Democrat Party and to the news media, particularly CNN. Most of these packages appear to have been pipe bombs, with some having been suspicious powder.
Thankfully, no one is hurt. At least one of the bombs appears to have been a fake one, according to the New York Times, who cited experts who said that the bombs were “the kind more typically depicted on television and in movies, rather than devices capable of detonating.”
A site called Law and Crime released an x-ray picture of one of the pipe bombs, which shows wires sticking out of both ends of the bomb. We know this is not a functioning pipe bomb because pipe bombs do not have wires sticking out of both sides. They are more like dynamite, with the wire sticking out of only one side.
Now, let’s consider who these packages were sent to. They were sent to former President Barack Obama, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (and thus, former POTUS Bill Clinton), Rep. Maxine Waters, former AG Eric Holder, a CNN studio in New York, former VP Joe Biden and George Soros.
None of these people, except for Maxine Waters have strong political power, not even Biden. George Soros’s power comes through his money in affecting politics, but he does not have direct political power, at least in the same way that Waters does. It’s important to understand this because the Left’s rhetoric is that it was a right-winger who sent those packages. If it really were a right-winger, what strategic advantage would Republicans have for someone sending bombs to anyone, let alone people who are under conservatives’ radar? It wouldn’t make any sense in the least, particularly done this way.
No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to Democrats 2 weeks before an election if they were hoping for Republicans to win. No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to anyone in the first place, but still.
Let’s also consider the timing of these packages. For one, they were sent within days, and in some cases, within hours of each other. They were also sent 2 weeks before one of the biggest elections of our lifetimes. AND they were also sent shortly after Trump, rightfully, capitalized on the migrant caravan heading towards our border, which as I have said in a previous article, could help Trump and Republicans in the midterms.
All of these packages were sent to well-known, but next to irrelevant people within the Democrat Party and the news media. While it would take a crazy person to send bombs to people through the mail, it would take an especially moronic crazy person to send bombs to high-profile figures on the Left and expect the packages not to be intercepted and kept away from the supposedly intended targets.
All of this, alongside the Left’s quick capitalization of placing the blame on Trump (which is frankly expected, but still significant) that makes me seriously question this entire thing.
Over the last couple of years, and particularly the last few months, we have seen an increase in violence coming from the Left directed towards the Right. This sort of thing tends to have an effect at the polling booths. I certainly know that I will vote Republican at least partly because of the Left’s behavior over the past couple of months and years. So I don’t think it’d be a far-fetched theory, though very much a conspiracy theory without proof, to believe that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats.
Again, we have to consider the fact that the Left has been acting horrendously these last few months particularly, and we have to also consider the fact that the migrant caravan would garner momentum for Republicans.
Have you noticed how the caravan, which has reportedly swelled to over 14,000 illegals, has largely disappeared from the news-cycle apart from news of Trump sending troops to the border?
With all of this in mind, I would not be surprised if this all turned out to be theatrics and a hoax to drive people to vote against Trump’s “anti-media” and anti-Leftist rhetoric.
Again, you have to consider that the media has capitalized in blaming Trump for all of this. Some are directly blaming him for sending the bombs, while others are marginally more “sensible” and are blaming his rhetoric for “emboldening” a crazy right-winger now dubbed the “MAGA bomber”, with that hashtag trending on Twitter.
Given the nature of the Left to do this sort of thing to Republicans, and given that they often blame things on Trump and other conservatives without a shred of evidence (see how they treated Kavanaugh), and I can’t help but think that this was largely orchestrated to drive people to vote Democrat and to perhaps even justify the actual attacks happening against conservatives.
Let’s not forget that the Deep State told George W. Bush that there were WMDs in Iraq when there were none. Let’s not forget that the Left, with the help of the media, often fabricate stories to target conservatives.
The fact that the people targeted were all well-known Leftists, most whom do not have political power so there’d be no real point for a right-winger to target them, these packages have been delivered at a high frequency and that it all comes at an opportune time for the Left, 2 weeks before the election (remember the slew of women saying Trump sexually assaulted them 3 weeks before the 2016 election?) all leads me to be highly suspicious of this entire thing.
Once again, I really must insist that no one take this to be the reality of the situation. This is largely a conspiracy theory with no proof of being the absolute truth. I am merely expressing my suspicions regarding this entire thing. I am not ruling out the possibility of a crazed right-winger actually perpetrating these things. But I particularly must insist that this is not conservatives’ MO, and that this is pretty exclusively what Leftists tend to do, so that draws more suspicion.
As a rule of thumb, I do not trust what the MSM tells me about anything. I especially do not trust people who choose to capitalize on tragedy (or potential tragedy) for political gain as the Left often does and as many people including CNN President Jeff Zucker, lunatic actor Jim Carrey, 1/1024th conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin and others are doing.
So any sort of story that puts the blame on Trump, his rhetoric surrounding the fake news media (there’s a word for what the media is doing regarding all of this. I believe it is called “irony”), or anything that tries to, without proof, put the blame on Trump and/or conservatives I will simply not believe.
My belief is that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats now that they are having actual doubts about their coveted “blue wave”. It could even be meant to serve as justification for the horrendous behavior they have shown towards conservatives.
By no means am I claiming that that’s the reality of the situation. I cannot prove that this is what is actually happening. I am merely suggesting that all of the circumstances surrounding these events are far too suspicious for me to take at face value.
But as I cannot prove anything regarding whether or not the Left is making all of this up for political gain (even if the circumstances point to that), all I will do for now is pray that this sort of thing does not happen to anyone else, Republican or Democrat, and that there will be a Christian revival that will lead to this sort of scare to no longer happen, particularly with such frequency.

Going through conservative media sources to find inspiration for an article, I found a piece on the Daily Wire talking about a study that shows about a quarter of Millennials (sample size less than 800) reportedly show symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Let me tell you, I can count on one hand the amount of times I found immediate inspiration by an article.
I will explain what I mean by that in a moment. First, I will give you the context of the situation.
A recent psychological study from San Francisco State University suggests that 25% of Millennials attending Arizona State University “reported experiencing ‘clinically significant’ levels of stress, along with other symptoms of PTSD,” according to the Daily Wire.
According to the Daily Wire, the students “were evaluated using an ‘Impact of Event’ scale, which measures stress levels at various times following a major traumatic event…”
It’s used for events such as a shooting, a terrorist attack, etc. So we already see some indication of the overreaction that is coming from these millennial students, having to use a scale that is typically used for tragic events to evaluate someone’s level of stress after an ELECTION.
Melissa Hagan, the lead researcher, said in a statement accompanying the release of the study: “The scale is used to gauge the extent to which individuals have been impacted by an event in such a way that it might lead to diagnosable post-traumatic stress disorder. What we were interested in seeing was, did the election for some people constitute a traumatic experience? And we found that it did for 25 percent of young adults.”
The study found that those who identify as a minority, are female, are Democrat, and/or are non-Christian reported having the highest stress levels.
The study says: “Black and nonwhite Hispanic students scored higher on the assessment than their white classmates, for instance. Gender, political affiliation and religion all played even larger roles. Females scored about 45 percent higher than males on the assessment, and Democrats scored more than two and a half times higher than Republicans.”
Now, I can understand (to an extent) Democrats being stressed about that. When Barack Obama was reelected President of the United States in 2012, the first election I actually payed attention to, I was sad, depressed and even stressed and worried for the future of the country.
At the time, I was a Mitt Romney supporter (the first and last time I will support an establishment Republican), and I was confident that he would win. But given that he was pretty soft with Obama after the first debate, even calling him a “good guy”, that gave little reason for Republicans to vote for the guy. I was disappointed at the time, and definitely sad and stressed out over Obama’s victory. But I would never, in a million years, even pretend to believe I suffered from PTSD because of that.
Earlier in the article, I mentioned that there have been few times when an article inspired me this easily. This is why. Because no one suffers from PTSD BECAUSE OF AN ELECTION!
Here’s a quick list of people who justifiably suffer from PTSD:
Nowhere on that list will you find “snowflakes who don’t like the guy who became President.”
To say that these children, and I mean that in every sense of the word, suffer from PTSD, even a little, because of the results of an election is asinine and is making a mockery of those who actually suffer from PTSD.
A hundred years ago, kids my age would be fighting in trenches during WWI. Nearly 80 years ago, kids my age would be fighting Nazis and Japs. 40 years ago, kids my age would be fighting Vietcong.
By comparison, my generation is pathetic, and that’s putting it lightly. The people who fought in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc. all were not much older than us, and all went through things we could not even imagine.
When I was in high school, one of my teachers told the story of his dad speaking at my teacher’s school when my teacher was a kid. My teacher’s dad was there to tell the children stories of what he did while in Vietnam. However, my teacher’s dad insisted and ensured my teacher would not hear those stories. Obviously, this made my teacher curious and asked his dad why he wouldn’t tell him those stories.
His dad replied: “Because I don’t have to look those kids in the eyes every day.” And that was the end of that. My teacher never again asked him about that.
The reason I tell you this is because that made me think “what horrors did his dad go through to not be able to look his son in the eyes if he told him?” Just hearing the story from my teacher’s side reached me to my core. I felt sorry for my teacher’s father and made me a bit more aware of the unspeakable horrors that can be found in this world if we look for them.
What my teacher’s dad did in Vietnam was probably horrendous. What he saw was probably horrendous.
But seeing the results of this study, I can’t help but laugh in disdain, thinking about these millennials: “You fools. You have no idea how good you have it if THIS is stressing you out.”
I could spend another article talking about how I’m not surprised that Democrat students feel this way (again, to an extent) but that I find it incredulous, and a bit suspicious, that only the white, Christian, Republicans were not stressed out about it, but I felt the need to bring some perspective to the mix, rather than argue smaller things like “Hispanics shouldn’t be stressed out over this” or “black people/women/leprechauns should not be stressed out over this”.
I wanted to focus mostly on the fact that it’s soldiers and those who fought and saw unspeakable horrors, maybe even committed some unspeakable horrors, who actually and justifiably suffer from PTSD.
I can’t imagine the kind of thing war veterans have gone through. The things they’ve seen and done. So for these kids to take PTSD so lightly that they think they can get it from being upset over an election that did not go their way honestly pisses me off.
And I do not mean to swear like that; I typically try to say “tick off” rather than that word, but that’s just how angry this sort of thing makes me. I truly meant that earlier thought of “these kids have no idea how good they have it.”
They would not survive a war. And I do not mean that they would get killed. That’s a probability, yes, but I mostly mean they would not have the character necessary to withstand the hardships that come with war. Even I probably could not. I have lived a fairly privileged life. The most stressful thing that I’ve had to deal with this week is writing a 750-1000 word essay where I needed to use 5 scholarly sources instead of the usual 2-3.
That tells me I do not have the mental fortitude to withstand what people in the military go/have gone through. What people in war have gone through. But at least I do not pretend that I have PTSD over that assignment. And at least I understand the fact that veterans have gone through things I could not even imagine and would have to personally experience to understand.
I’m not trying to say I’m better than these snowflakes, but I am stressing the point that we have a lot to thank our military, past and present, for.
Now, I will relegate to feeling sorry over my pathetic generation, who are now earning the antithesis of the nickname given to the generation that went through the Great Depression and fought in WWII. If that generation is called “the greatest generation”, then mine is “the worst generation”. And it’s completely earned given the results of this study.

One of the biggest stories this week, which will likely continue being as big, or even bigger in the days and weeks to come, is the fact that anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 illegal immigrants are marching towards the United States, likely seeking “asylum”. It will soon be clear why I am putting that in quotation marks.
Anyway, I say that the caravan is in that range because I have seen multiple different numbers. Many report 5,000 to 7,000, while others like the Daily Wire report 10,000, so it’s not entirely clear which number is most accurate. But regardless of the actual number, that is a lot of people staging what can only be described as an invasion, even if it is an unarmed (though I imagine many people are armed) invasion of the U.S., which is the reason Trump is perfectly justified in using the military to stop this caravan, if that is the route he opts in taking.
However, reading the title, you must know that there is something within this story that yours truly sees as a good thing. I can assure you, I am not becoming a Leftist. I’d rather bathe in a tub of acid than be a Leftist.
I am, however, seeing what can be considered the big picture here. Allow me to explain.
Reading the news of the caravan starting up, leaving Honduras, swelling in size, and forcefully pushing past Mexican police and MPs, how does that make you feel? I imagine disturbed at the very least, or even downright terrified. If so, you can be safe in knowing that you are not alone in this.
While the Democrats might see this caravan as a good thing (without necessarily saying that outright) and while they might choose to ignore it as though it’s not happening, we can’t help but acknowledge it and see it as a very bad thing.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is an invasion. With this many people, likely being helped in being fed, sheltered, etc. (likely by George Soros, but I can’t prove that), all seeking “asylum”, you can’t help but think of this as an invasion. And by the way, I put asylum in quotation marks because these people aren’t seeking asylum from their own countries. If you’ve seen the pictures, you’ll see some people waving the Honduran flag, the Mexican flag and whatever country’s flag these people are from.
If they were seeking asylum or refuge from those countries, they wouldn’t be proudly flying those countries’ flags. When have you seen a North Korean defector waving the North Korean flag? Or a Cuban escapee waving the Cuban flag? When have you seen someone escaping oppression, socialism, etc. waving the flag and proudly representing the country they just “escaped” from?
These aren’t refugees, or asylum seekers, or immigrants. They are invaders.
Knowing all of this, don’t you think this will make Americans like me and you want a border wall at the Southern border? The reason the Great Wall of China was initially built was because during the Qin Dynasty, the First Emperor of Qin wanted to prevent invasion from northern nations. Sure, later it was used to protect Silk Road trade, but it was initially built to guard China from invasion.
Likewise, we see something similar. We have nations down south who don’t want to invade the country themselves, waging war against us, but nations who allow their people to illegally migrate to another country en masse.
It may not be any one particular nation that is the invading force of this caravan, but it is those nations’ people who are forcefully making their way here, all-the-while still representing their countries of origin through the proud waving of their flags.
The idea of a foreign entity invading the U.S. is downright terrifying and should put everyone on edge. This is what we are facing right now, so we have to come up with viable solutions. Allowing this caravan entry into the country means other caravans popping up and doing the same, eventually leading to the utter invasion and transformation of the U.S. away from its founding principles (which are already under attack by the Left anyway) and into a country similar to the rest of the continent.
The blessing in disguise that this caravan brings is that people might become more warm to the idea of a border wall.
When Trump initially came up with the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall” in our border with Mexico, many people loved it, but many people also hated it. The media, unsurprisingly, was adamantly against it, as were the Democrats.
But given how toxic the Left has shown themselves to truly be, I imagine there will be more and more people choosing to vote Republican this November. As time goes on, the media has been a little less adamant to claim victory of a “blue wave”, saying that it might be a close race. Even DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently said that “we (Democrats) always knew that this election was going to be close.”
At the start of the year, everyone was making the same claims that they were making in 2016: Trump is going to lose, Democrats are going to win in the biggest landslide ever, blah, blah, blah.
And now, he says it’s going to be close?
This sort of thing tends to be the case as the race grows near. People become slightly less confident and think it will be closer than previously anticipated. But this sort of thing, coming after a year of touting a blue wave that would sweep the Republicans and crush Trump, is indicative that the Democrats legitimately fear there will be no such blue wave.
Why? Because their attitude and actions have been so toxic that they’re driving people away. Not that they would ever admit to that, of course, but the results will show. The “#WalkAway” movement started for a reason and I believe it has far more traction than the Left believes it has.
This caravan can only help Republicans and Trump come November. It’s indicative of the failed immigration policies of the Democrats that have slowly, but surely been eating away at our border safety, leading millions to enter the country illegally. Now, we have large groups of people forcefully making their way to the U.S., not in the hopes of assimilating, being part of our capitalistic economic system, but in the hopes of exploiting it at best and changing it at worst.
Trump, for his part, is rightly putting the blame on the Democrats. It’s THEIR immigration policy and lack of enforcing immigration laws that has led to this invasion.
Now, the ironic thing is that a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which has Trump at a record high of 47% approval rating (record high for the poll itself), says that Democrats are ahead when it comes to the issue of immigration (up by 4 points on Repubs). Meaning that likely voters trust Democrats a little more on immigration than they do the GOP.
Well, while I find that awfully suspicious given Trump’s high approval in the poll itself and given that immigration is what Trump won on, I doubt such an advantage is actually there. It might’ve been back during the summer when the Left were screaming at Trump over keeping kids in cages (which is what Obama was doing, but no one pay attention to that) and separating kids from their parents (which Clinton started, but again, no one pay attention to that). That’s when Democrats might’ve taken the lead in immigration, but definitely not now.
And with this caravan, there’s no way people aren’t at the very least disturbed by it enough to want to build a wall.
I hate the idea of a caravan of illegals making their way to the U.S. I imagine many people feel the same way. But while Trump might be able to stop this caravan, and God-willing he will, what’s to stop another caravan in the future from popping up?
Trump won’t be President for life like his Chinese counter-part. Eventually, someone else will be President. Hopefully a Republican, but who’s to say that they would be able, or even willing, to stop a future caravan?
A wall, on the other hand, is imposing and permanent (unless you tear it down, of course, but you get my point). A wall would/will be more able to stop invaders. Of course, it will also have to be accompanied by actual enforcement of our immigration laws, but a wall is at least a start.
This caravan, quite frankly, terrifies me. I am not in a border state, so I will not be directly affected by this, but the number of people coming in here illegally, who will definitely be voting Democrat because Democrats don’t care about voting laws (or any laws that don’t benefit them), as well as the fact that, if not stopped, this will definitely encourage more and more caravans popping up makes me afraid for our future.
Because while today it may be anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000, more caravans means more and bigger numbers to the point where we are either completely overrun or our economy is so garbage that people won’t want to come anymore because it’d be no different from Central America. Frankly, it could easily become both.
At this point, I don’t see voting Republican this November as voting for a political party that I more agree and identify with. I see it as the safeguarding of our country both now and in the future. The Democrats have proven they have no desire to protect America, particularly as it is now. They wish to transform it no matter what, even if that means being overrun by illegals.
I’m not gonna be voting Republican just to punish the Democrats for their recent behavior. I’m doing it because they seem to be the only ones that actually give a damn about protecting this country.
This is no longer about certain policies working or not. It’s about the survival of our country as we know it. It’s about defending our country from foreign invaders.
Everyone says this is the most important election of our lifetimes, or at least one of them. They’re certainly not wrong, because this means we either protect our nation from future invasions and the evils of the Left, or we surrender to future invasions and the evils of the Left.

One of the biggest stories post-confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh has been a short portion of a segment on Don Lemon’s show on CNN. And this segment showcases the kind of ignorant and blatant racism that exists on the Left in more than one way.
Talking about Kanye West and his support for President Donald Trump, Don Lemon had three different guests on. Two of them were black (former Congressman Bakari Sellers and CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer) and another person, a white guy. But the bigger things to focus on are what the two black guests said on the show.
The Bakari Sellers started by saying: “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read. And we have this now, and Donald Trump is going to use this and pervert it, and he’s gonna have somebody who can stand with him and take pictures.”
At this, Don Lemon was not shocked by his words. Matter of fact, he laughed when he saw the white guy’s face reacting to Bakari’s use of the n-word and his overall offensive statement which I will get to momentarily.
Then, Tara chimed in on the racism: “Listen, black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft, okay? They’ve had it with him. And he’s an attention whore like the President. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson; he’s the token Negro of the Trump Administration? This is ridiculous. And no one should be taking Kanye West seriously; he clearly has issues; he’s already been hospitalized…”
There are a lot of different things I could say here that would ultimately make this article too long. So, I will try my best at summarizing.
Primarily, it should come as no surprise that this is insanely offensive to black people. These two ignoramuses call Kanye West, a Trump supporter, things like an attention whore, a token Negro, and insult his intelligence, saying that this is what happens when black folks don’t read. To me, that sounds exactly like something a Grand Wizard in the KKK would say. West’s support for Trump characterizes him as an ignorant black man who doesn’t read and has mental issues.
This is adamantly disgusting by CNN and not a single person on the Left gives a damn. Why? Because it’s black people calling West a token Negro and other things.
Which brings us to the other racist part of CNN. They knew damn well that if they had white people calling him a Negro, that would be considered racist. So they had other black people to do their bidding (kinda like slavery?) and call him these horrible, racist things. To the Left, a black person is not considered racist if they do or say something adamantly racist against someone else.
Particularly so if the person they target disagrees with the Left. I was going to say “particularly if the person they target is a conservative” but I would be hard-pressed to call West a conservative, at least for now. It’s gone past the point of political labels. Anyone that even remotely disagrees with the Left is prey to be slaughtered. Someone who must be totally destroyed.
And since West is a black Trump supporter, the Left feels comfortable having black people attack him using race.
Now, as I promised, I will now analyze what these disgusting people actually said.
“Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read…” Let’s be honest, there is nothing but racism and condescension here. To think this man was ever in Congress would shock me if I were not already aware of the Left’s hideous nature. And this sentence alone exposes how bigoted they are. Not only that, the fact that CNN had a black guy say this shows that not only are they bigoted, but cowards as well, hiding behind Bakari’s skin color.
Not only was that insanely offensive, it is also flat-out incorrect. Kanye West escaped the Left’s slave plantation, which is more than I can say for Lemon, Bakari and Tara. They call him uneducated and ignorant when they themselves are uneducated and ignorant. That’s not to say they did not go to college or public school. That is to say, however, that they were not educated. Rather, they were indoctrinated in the poisons of the Left.
For anyone to abandon the Democrat Party, they are abandoning the party of segregation during the Civil War. The party of racism that fought to keep slaves. The party of racism that was largely split in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. I would make a “pot calling the kettle black” joke about these disgusting people, but that might be misconstrued as racist just because the word “black” is included, so I will hold my tongue there.
Moving on to what Tara said, that was both offensive to black people AND to people who struggle with mental health. So that’s a double-whammy of a horrible statement made by a horrible person.
But perhaps the most horrendously ironic part comes outside of this particular segment. The same people that are calling Kanye West a token Negro are the same people who call Taylor Swift “brave” for supporting the Democrat candidate in her state of Tennessee.
This is the double-standard set forth by the Left. Any black person that supports Trump and/or is conservative is a token Negro. Any woman that is conservative is a traitor to her gender, as though that’s a line people should not cross. Any Hispanic that is conservative is a traitor to other Hispanics. Ditto for gay people who are conservative.
Anyone who is a conservative and is a minority is a traitor to their minority in the Left’s eyes. So allow me to retort in a few ways:
First, that’s dumb.
Second, that’s racist. My race does not defy who I am. While I am Hispanic, that does not mean being a Leftist. Far from it, considering most Hispanics tend to be Christian.
Third, if being Hispanic means I have to be a Democrat, then I sexually identify as a white man. That does not even make any sense, but that’s no longer a requirement in the Left’s world.
But this all speaks to the Left’s sense of entitlement. They feel as though they OWN minorities. That is why they say that conservative minorities are traitors to their race, gender, etc. By saying that, they expose the fact that they fundamentally believe they own minorities.
They believe they own women all-the-while claiming they fight for their liberation. They believe they own black people all-the-while calling for supposed racial equality. They believe they own minorities. This has been a staple of their political leanings since even before the Democrat Party was founded.
Even the 13th Amendment, which prohibits people from owning another person, can’t keep these new-age KKKers from believing they own people.
Perhaps it is for this reason that I should not be so surprised that CNN would have some black people attack Kanye West based solely on his race. However, that does not make it any less disgusting to witness.
CNN should be ashamed, but they clearly aren’t.

After about a month (or at least what felt like a month) of smear campaign after smear campaign against Judge (now Justice) Brett Kavanaugh, the dangerous mob rule of the Left has been defeated by sanity and logic.
But just because Brett Kavanaugh is now a Supreme Court Justice does not mean that the Left will simply lay down in defeat. Much like the 2016 Presidential election, they will deem this confirmation illegitimate and have even warned that, should they retake the House, they will impeach Brett Kavanaugh and undermine President Trump, and subsequently, the American people who wanted him confirmed in the first place.
The behavior the Left displayed in the weeks running up to Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote was absolutely horrendous, shameful and even terrifying. But what is even more terrifying is the knowledge that this is only the beginning.
This whole thing started with Sen. Diane Feinstein releasing a letter that was sent to her describing a horrible act that was supposedly perpetrated by Kavanaugh. For a long while, that was all people were talking about. The supposed ire that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford went through roughly 30 years ago.
The biggest problem that the Left faced (but tried to ignore until it came back to bite them) is that Ford’s claims were uncorroborated. She presented no evidence to prove her claims and no witnesses to corroborate her claims. In fact, the witnesses she names either deny having been there or deny such a party even happening in the first place.
But instead of moving on to something substantial in their fight against Brett Kavanaugh, the Left chose to double down. They didn’t just ignore the fact that Ford’s claims were uncorroborated, they flat out denied that they even needed to be corroborated.
Multiple Leftists tried to take away Kavanaugh’s right to presumption of innocence. They painted him as a rapist even before the most ludicrous accusation, that of Swetnik’s, even came up. In their minds, Ford calling him a sexual assaulter made him one. They didn’t just ignore logic or sanity. They adamantly rejected both of them.
After Ford came out with her story and seeing how the media and the Democrats reacted, more women tried to come in and achieve something similar. The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported a story of Brett Kavanaugh having exposed himself in front of a woman named Deborah Ramirez. That story was also uncorroborated.
But as if either of those uncorroborated stories weren’t enough, in came Michael Avenatti with his client, a woman named Julia Swetnik. While Ford did not try to go as far as to say Kavanaugh had raped her (though she said she thought he would have tried to) and Ramirez tried to fan the flames just a little bit with a story of sexual misconduct, not necessarily assault, Swetnik came in chucking a gallon of gas into the fire.
The problem was that, apart from the fact that her story was also uncorroborated, it was also largely incredible. As in hardly anyone with a functioning brain would believe it.
Who would believe a college-age girl would go to high school parties where there would be gang rapes and drugging of girls? Beyond that, who would believe a college-age girl would attend such parties 10 DIFFERENT TIMES?!
But did that actually insane story stop the Left from pushing it? Of course not, because these people are just as unhinged as that story was.
Multiple Democrats roped in Swetnik’s accusation along with Ford’s and Ramirez’s. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who largely made a name for herself in this case against Kavanaugh, said: “We already have three credible reports of sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh” when calling for an FBI investigation against the nominee.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said: “We now have three credible accusers of sexual assault.”
And Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) issued a press release titled: “Senate Democrats: FBI Must Investigate All Three Credible Allegations of Sexual Assault Against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
They all deemed Swetnik’s ludicrous accusation to be just as credible as the other two. While I would consider Ford’s to be somewhat believable to an extent, and Ramirez to a lesser extent, Swetnik’s accusation is flat out unbelievable, let alone incredible. Whether you like Brett Kavanaugh or not, you would be hard-pressed to believe a girl would repeatedly go to parties where girls get drugged and raped by a line of boys.
Had it been once, then we could chuck it up to being in the wrong place at the wrong time and having survived something horrendous that one time. But 10? Not even fiction writers would find this believable.
And yet, the Left ran with it. They abandoned sanity and logic in favor of partisan politics. But alas, they failed.
The circus show that they created wound up coming back to bite them. And even Democrats and the MSM have been blaming Avenatti for making things as wild as they were (and they are right to some extent, but not without a share of the blame themselves for running with it in the first place).
They saw what happened in the Alabama special election and thought they could recreate that with Kavanaugh. The problem was that at least some of the accusations against Roy Moore were believable and credible. He DID date a 16-year-old girl (not that it is illegal in Alabama, for some reason). So some of the accusations were at least believable (I won’t call them credible because virtually nothing happened after Moore lost, which makes me think it was nothing more than a political hit-job).
But when it comes to all the accusations against Kavanaugh, the most believable one is Ford’s and even that is a bit of a stretch to say it’s believable. She could not remember the when or where of it and could not remember who drove her home. She remembered the incident in detail but anyone can do that, particularly if they have 30+ years to do it.
And the subsequent allegations became less and less believable until you get to Swetnik who was basically a nuclear bomb directed at Kavanaugh, but likely impacted the Left a lot more.
But the fact that the Left ran with all of them, despite them not being corroborated with evidence, and even going as far as to believe it was up to Kavanaugh to prove his innocence rather than Ford to prove his guilt tells me all I need to know about where we are headed as a nation against the Left.
Like wild dogs, they will bite and maul at anyone and anything. And I would not be surprised if they started to get violent.
The Kavanaugh confirmation process is proof that the Left is ready to abandon any and all sense of morality, logic and sanity. I’ve said before that Trump’s election did not create the Left’s insane nature, but rather exposed it. The confirmation process for Kavanaugh exposed something else: the Left is not ashamed of what they are.
They wanted to destroy Kavanaugh and went to any length they deemed necessary. They slandered him and dragged his name through the mud. They targeted him and his family and have tried to utterly destroy his name. A writer for Stephen Colbert even tweeted on the day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation: “Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”
That tells you everything you need to know, doesn’t it? It wasn’t about making sure a woman was heard. It wasn’t about defending victims of sexual assault. It wasn’t about standing up to a possible sexual assaulter. It was about ruining a man who stands in the Left’s way. They wanted to do to Kavanaugh what they want to do to Trump. Only, they thought they could destroy Kavanaugh if they went twice as hard against him as they did against Trump.
Yesterday, it was Brett Kavanaugh. Who will it be today? Or tomorrow? Or Novemver 6th, 2018? Or further down the road?
I recently had a conversation with someone regarding this whole issue. They made the point that this was a war against men that the Left is waging. I made the point that it was a war against conservatives that the Left is waging. Upon further analysis and thought, I could say that it’s really both.
The Left hates this thing called the “patriarchy”. And within this patriarchy, there exist men of all kinds, even Leftist men. Just the title of a man is enough to be considered part of this patriarchy regardless of your beliefs.
Leftist men like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, George Takei, Bill Cosby, Al Franken and others have been destroyed by the #MeToo movement. As well they should have. What they did was horrendous, particularly Weinstein.
As far as I can tell, the #MeToo movement has destroyed far more Leftist men than conservatives.
It depicts a war against men. Yes, most, if not all of them are sexual assaulters, so there definitely has to be some punishment against them. But the Left has hijacked this movement and aimed its sights at conservatives who did not do anything.
Anyone who is a conservative is considered a sexual assault apologist at best and a sexual assaulter and rapist at worst. The Women’s March, another Leftist organization, even went as far as to call Senator Susan Collins a “Rape Apologist” for having voted in favor of Kavanaugh.
So this war the Left is waging, I would say, is both against men in general and conservatives (or anyone who stands in their way, since I would not call Collins a “conservative” even after this).
This is where the Left is going. It’s somewhere that, if you have any sense for right and wrong, or any sanity within you, you cannot follow. What they want is a society where they are in control, anyone who opposes them is punished and everyone else submits to them out of fear.
A society where rule of law does not exist, only rule of mob. A society where good, innocent men are disparaged and destroyed just because they are nominated by a guy the Left does not like, or even just because they are men and that’s good enough to destroy them. Frankly, aside from key details, I would not be surprised if they had been as savage and barbaric towards Amy Coney Barrett (who I look forward to replacing RBG). She also would have stood in their way and they would have gone to any lengths they felt were needed to destroy her.
Doubtful it would’ve been with sexual assault allegations given she’s a woman, but they would have done something.
And all things considered, I am glad Brett Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump over Barrett. Not because I prefer him over her. In fact, I think she’s even more conservative than Kavanaugh and was my favorite candidate out of the list that Trump released. But I am glad Kavanaugh was chosen because this process further exposed the Left for what they are: totally and unequivocally unhinged and deranged.
I’d rather know the enemy I am facing, even if it terrifies me, than be oblivious to my enemy and live in blissful ignorance that would ultimately kill me.
I’m glad we all got to see the Left for the crap that they are. This process has affirmed my belief in voting Republican. Not necessarily because I might like the Republican candidate, but because I absolutely cannot allow a Democrat to win. Not anymore. And while Manchin voted in favor of Kavanaugh, he only did it because he thought it’d help him in November. I thank him for voting the way he did, but will not give him more credit than what is due.
As for the rest of the Democrat Party, I do not see a single one that I would consider sane in any way. At best, maybe Nancy Pelosi, but if I consider her to be the least deranged out of the bunch, that tells me a lot about the Democrat Party.
The good news is that God is always in control and that the Left’s recent behavior will likely cost them in the midterms. Only insane people support insane people. And I do not think there are that many of them to vote Democrat. With the WalkAway movement, which likely gained more traction after this, I doubt sane people will vote Democrat.
But I won’t count my eggs before they hatch. We are still a month away from the midterms and a lot can happen in that time span. But it would take a miracle for the Left to put out the dumpster fire they have created for themselves. And knowing them, they will not only ignore the fact that they are a dumpster fire, but will flat out reject that there is any other alternative than being a dumpster fire.

If this title seems familiar to you, I would not be very surprised. A month ago, almost to the date, I wrote an article about unemployment claims standing at a 50-year-low. However, those numbers are a tad different from these numbers.
In that previous article, I covered a story by The Hill, where they said: “Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell to a seasonally adjusted 203,000 for the week… the lowest since December 1969… the four-week moving average… was 209,500… the lowest level for this average since Dec. 6, 1969 when it was 204,500.”
But the unemployment rate is a different story. A month ago, it stood at 3.9%. In the latest jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “the unemployment rate declined to 3.7 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 134,000…”
According to the BLS: “the number of unemployed persons decreased by 270,000 to 6.0 million. Over the year, the unemployment rate and the number of unemployed persons declined by 0.5 percentage points and 795,000, respectively.”
The report also mentions that adult women’s unemployment rate stands at 3.3%, as well as White unemployment. “The jobless rates for adult men (3.4 percent), teenagers (12.8 percent), Blacks (6.0 percent), Asians (3.5 percent), and Hispanics (4.5 percent) showed little to no change over the month.”
The last time I saw the black unemployment rate, it stood around 5.9%, so a little bit of an increase, unfortunately, but nothing severe. Hispanic unemployment rate is sitting at the same record low that it was last month.
Now, we should also mention the fact that we only added 134,000 jobs last month, which is lower than usual and lower than was even expected.
According to the BLS: “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 134,000 in September, compared with an average gain of 201,000 over the prior 12 months.”
However, they explain that Hurricane Florence hitting some of the East coast states likely impacted the jobs report to some extent. I do not know the full details of how much damage the hurricane caused and how many jobs were negatively affected by the hurricane in this report, but it stands to reason that the hurricane would do at least some damage.
Regardless of this, the overall news is pretty fantastic. Sitting at a 50-year-low unemployment rate is pretty significant and a huge achievement for this administration. It really should not be understated how big an achievement this is.
The last time we had an unemployment rate this low:
So knowing all of this, this just tells you how impressive of an achievement this is.
We have record-low unemployment rates across the board and we are truly Making America Great Again.
When the Democrats say they “have to stop Trump”, is this what they mean? They want to stop the economy booming? They want to set us back in trade policy with other nations? They want to set us back in foreign policy altogether? They want to allow ISIS, or Muslim extremists in general, to rebuild their strength and once again pose a threat to Western Civilization?
I know these are all rhetorical questions, but the answer honestly is yes. That’s precisely what they want to do. They hate the fact that the economy is doing so well under Trump. They hate the fact that he’s successfully destroyed NAFTA and negotiated a new, better deal with Mexico and Canada. They hate the fact that his “bullying” tactics have worked with North Korea so far, and even try to say that such tactics won’t work on Iran. They hate the fact that terrorism is now largely a threat to nations that have elected socialist governments to represent them, such as Great Britain, France, etc., while largely leaving the U.S. alone.
We never had numbers even close to this with Obama. Sure, they tried to say the numbers were low, but largely because a lot of people simply stopped looking for work in the first place. These numbers are real, as reflected by the fact that wages are going up and thousands of businesses have given their employees some extra cash in their pockets, with Walmart having increased their minimum wage to $15 without being pushed to doing this and risking layoffs.
The economy is truly booming, which is why the MSM doesn’t cover it unless the Dow Jones goes down by a lot in a single day (and when it goes back up by a lot the next, they go back to not covering the economy very much).
And no Democrat, especially Obama, is to thank for this. It’s not their tax cuts that are helping – it’s the GOP’s. They adamantly voted against those tax cuts, if you’ll remember.
Here’s hoping that there is a Red Wave this November, Congress gets flooded with more and more Republicans and we can continue seeing these great numbers all the way to 2020, when Trump goes against Cory “not so Smarticus” Booker, Kamala “illegals are more important than you” Harris, Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren or Hillary “how am I still not in jail, Jeff?” Clinton.
