How in the World was Trump Elected?

shutterstock_315714344

A friend recently posted an article by the Wall Street Journal, on Facebook. The article was titled, ” ‘Deplorables’ Rise Up to Reshape America,” written by Gerald Seib. Intrigued, as I have always considered the Wall Street Journal to be a respected publication, I read the article. It was insulting to say the least. Sadly, I tossed my Wall Street Journal in the trash and have cancelled my subscription, and with a sigh admit that there is no honest ‘middle of the road’  journalism left in the United States.

We have all heard the bloviating of every major news station and every mainstream publication, who demonized Trump from the beginning, thinking they understand the reason that he was propelled into the White House. Of course, those of us who jumped into the “deplorables” basket freely with enthusiasm, relieved that someone was finally running for office who understood what was happening to our country, know the REAL REASON Trump won. We should all be asking ourselves why anyone would believe the mainstream media in their post-election frenzy, when they clearly lied, misrepresented the truth, cheated in the debates and flat-out lied to the American people during the entire election process. These same naysayers are now standing up clearly delusional in their belief that only they can predict what he will do when he takes control of the White House and the once most powerful Nation in the world.

Well, here’s a newsflash. They didn’t have clue when he joined the race, they purposefully tried to destroy him when he was winning the race and now they will misrepresent, yet again, what they think will happen to the United States now that he has won. In their infinite stupidity and allegiance to the liberal political elite, they scream racist, homophobe, Islamaphobe, bigot and destroyer of the atmosphere in a continued effort to scare anyone who might agree that we need change. I think, as a self-professed deplorable, I should explain the real reason he won from the point of view of a person who actually voted for him.

Unfortunately, the WSJ article is full of accusations, divisiveness and polarization which is, in fact, the message of the liberal left. A left who demands tolerance, unless of course you disagree with them, which will result in the destruction of  your personal property, the burning of your business or the beating of your life. Trump won the White House because the “majority” of Americans who voted for him….whites, blacks, gays, women, Latinos, immigrants (legal), rich, poor uneducated and educated, white-collar and blue-collar are sick of the lawlessness and the complete disregard for the exceptionalism of the United States and its people. The majority of America falls in the middle, not only in opinions, but in a class of people who believe that hard work, the rule of law and our constitution should be important enough to defend. This majority is tired of being sacrificed at the altar of Wall Street and the political elites through bail outs and stimulus given to the very people who destroyed the economy for their own personal gain in the first place. Crooks who were handed our money, earned by the same hard-working American people, who lost their homes, their jobs, their savings and retirement plans. Our money, given to the same crooks who were allowed to take the millions they stole and continue with their lives while never being punished or held accountable for their illegal manipulation of the housing market in the first place.

This ‘Trump’ majority was tired of hearing Democrats and our President apologize for the very things that made this country great and safe, while throwing anyone, who held this country dear, under the bus. A bus full of politically well-connected politicians, CEO’s and special interests who were purposefully throwing billions of American dollars to the United Nations while they, in their high and mighty, misguided infinite wisdom, want the UN to rule the world. ‘Globalization,’ the new buzz word of the liberal left. A word that ultimately means that the US should be bowing to the altar of the same power-hungry global elites who think they know what is best for the ‘stupid’ Americans. The same elites that want open borders that will eventually make America a place that no longer honors its citizens or puts them first.  If they could fool us in to handing over our democratic society, then who else in the world would dare question their intentions. The United States is a great nation and one that has served as a beacon of freedom to the majority of the world. A country that offers liberty, freedom of speech and religion without fear of persecution. A country where hard work will reap great success. A country where millions will place their money and their lives on the line, in order to be called an American citizen. However, ignoring the immigrants  who have lined up for years to become a part of this great nation, our political elite give ambassadorships, visas and passports to anyone who will write a check to their favorite charity….them. They chastise anyone who disagrees with allowing unvetted refugees, who have already committed mass murder as a thank you to those who have opened their borders, to overtake our nation by calling us racists instead of realists.

Meanwhile here at home, the liberal left, in their misguided self-professed wisdom decided to fundamentally change our great Nation. They took over our healthcare, promising lies of affordability, while knowing from the beginning that a single payer system was the ultimate prize. Our education system, taken over by government, is infiltrated with liberal professors and educators who slowly but surely poison the minds of our future generations. They begin by destroying the integrity of the our nation and then follow-up with altering our actual history to suit their twisted agenda of eventually controlling the masses.  Dumb down the youth of today so they can control the adults of tomorrow.  Now, their successful infiltration of the education system has resulted in a generation who think they are entitled to everything without lifting a finger. A generation who was congratulated and handed trophies in their youth for doing nothing. A generation who is so spoiled and uninformed that they demean the very people who fought for and died for their rights to insult our country and burn our flag without retribution. The same generation who, under the protection of democracy, burn their communities and destroy local businesses because they didn’t get their way. Riots and destruction funded by the liberal elites who use the youth to do the dirty work so they can continue to pretend outrage.  The same generation who cheer the corrupt political elite who have weaponized our government agencies and used them to attack and destroy anyone who dare call out their destructive agendas. A generation who cannot recognize how they are being used by the left to seal a future for the United States that gives the well-connected and the elites more power and more money while the rest of us are sacrificed at the altar of globalism.

Yes, Donald Trump was elected and has, by the wish of the majority of the people, separated himself from the old Republican party and the Democrats, by standing up for life, liberty and the right of every American to pursue happiness without the interference of a bloated, misguided, noninclusive government, who has forgotten its place.  Trump, though the power of the people, will put our government back where it belongs….a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

One Bad Apple Destroys the Whole Bushel!

Apple-of-my-eye-300x209

 

Eleven teachers in Atlanta have been convicted for the largest cheating scandal in the nation’s history. So what does this tell us? ALL teachers are cheaters!

A Northwestern University professor violated the sexual harassment code by getting a student drunk then kissing her and groping her while she blacked out. What does this tell us? ALL university and college professors are sexual predators!

A  Florida insurance agent, was found guilty of racketeering and money laundering. What does this tell us? ALL insurance agents are crooks!

Does this sound like a fair assessment of each of these professions? Isn’t it true, based on the current “Hands up, Don’t Shoot,” narrative, that if one police officer commits an infraction that they are ALL  guilty?

No, you say?

When we look at the MIchael Brown case, we have found that witnesses lied, the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” narrative was a total fabrication, and Brown not only robbed a convenience store , but threatened and grabbed the police officer’s gun. The whole narrative about “poor” Michael Brown was all lies and deception to fuel the cancer that all police officers are racists and bigots. To add insult to injury, even our President got in on the scam. Calling out the police officer as the criminal and Michael Brown as innocent, before the facts were even investigated. A man who dedicated his life to the police force had his career destroyed, his family threatened and their lives ruined because so called civil rights leaders, our president and the department of justice decided to take the opportunity to  throw all police officers under the bus.

Let’s look at some statistics.

In 2012 according to the CDC, 140 blacks were killed by police. That same year 386 whites were killed by police. Between 1999 and 2011, the CDC reports that 2,151 whites were killed by cops, and 1,130 blacks were killed by cops.

Everyone today is spewing forth statistics to back up their arguments. Those statistics change depending on who is reporting on the story.  The truth is that “Exaggerations have poisoned discussions about relations between blacks and the police.

Chuck Todd of Meet the Press said,

“Black men between the ages of 15 and 19 are 21 times as likely as whites to be killed by a police officer.” 

His guest, Charles Ogletree, a Harvard Law Professor said the same,

“The data is clear, that black boys are being killed by white police officers around the country.” 

These statistics were repeated on other shows seemingly nonstop. But are the statistics true? The numbers ARE NOT accurate and they do not take into consideration the whole truth. The fact they do not make clear is that only 217 police departments, only 1.2% of all departments in the country report on this data at all. The few departments that do report this data are predominently in urban areas which tend to have higher concentrations of blacks. This definitely skews the facts. To get an accurate assessment we also have to look at the crime rates between whites and blacks. Based on recent FBI crime numbers,

Black male teenagers were nine times more likely to commit murder than were their white counterparts.

That’s right, nine times, and the gap in these urban areas is undoubtedly even larger. After adjusting for murder rates, black male teenagers are still killed by the police 2.3 times as often as whites. This is a considerable difference — but again, over-representation of urban areas in the data set could be a big part of the explanation.

As reported in the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEON),

A total of 1,501 law-enforcement officers died in the line of duty during the past ten years, an average of one death every 58 hours, or 150 per year. These include local and state police officers, federal officers, correctional officers, and military law-enforcement officers.

Fact: Last year, 100 law-enforcement officers were killed. On average, over the past decade, there have been 58,261 assaults against law enforcement each year, resulting in 15,658 injuries.

Fact: New York City has lost more officers in the line of duty than any other department, with 697 deaths. Texas has lost 1,675 officers, more than any other state.

 NLEOMF released preliminary fatality statistics from August 2013 to August 2014. Total fatalities are up 14 percent, from 63 last year to 72 this year. “Five officers were killed in ambushes, which continue to be a major threat to law enforcement safety,” the group notes.

What about the facts that 83% or all blacks are killed by blacks? Does that set off any bells? Where are the civil rights leaders, President Obama and the Justice Department on these statistics? Why are we not appalled and determined to fix these issues within the inner cities?

Does any of this information  change your opinion on Police Officers? What about the fact that the media exploits the facts to fit their agenda? What about the fact that so-called civil rights leaders exploit these statistics to fatten their wallets? Lets look at Al Sharpton. Does anyone actually believe that he is out there for the good of race relations?  Yet despite the obvious, Al Sharpton has extraordinary access to the president and his top advisers. A White House official told Politico that “there’s a trust factor with the Rev from the Oval Office on down.”   Is this really the person we would all expect to find advising the President of the United States on race relations?

Do you really believe that the destruction of our cities within the United States by protestors and looters is truly a result of police brutality or is it just a case, furthered by our so-called leaders, that one bad apple destroys the whole bushel?

What Does History Tell Us About Slavery And Racism?

org_pop_topred

Which political party really supported slavery and continue to further the cause of racism?  Most people will immediately point their finger at Republicans and Conservatives.  You know those evil old white folks who would rather see you encased in chains than an actual contributing citizen of the United States? Well if you believe this, then I have some swamp land in Florida I need to sell. If you look at  history, it will definitely prove you wrong.

Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan was committed to the violent intimidation of blacks, Republicans and northerners.  It was a group that was established by Democrats to fight against the political and economic freedoms for blacks.  The first leader of the KKK was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who made his fortune as a cotton planter and a slave trader. He later fought in the civil war to protect his right to own slaves and was well-known for the Fort Pillow Massacre in 1864.  Forrest marched 1500-2500 troops to take over Ft. Pillow which was being guarded by about 600 Union soldiers, half of them black. When his confederate soldiers took the fort, the Union soldiers surrendered and instead of  taking them as prisoners, Forrest massacred all 300 black soldiers.  After the war ended, Forrest resisted the Reconstruction and became the first Grand Wizard of the KKK.

President Lincoln’s Republican victory for President, led to the addition of the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution which called for the “utter and complete destruction” of slavery, and granted blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote. The Democratic party called for the restoration of State’s rights which would have given each state the right to enforce slavery if they saw fit.  As a result, Democrats started the KKK in a resistance measure against Reconstruction.

Why was the NAACP founded? In 1905, a group of thirty-two prominent African-American leaders met to discuss the challenges facing people of color and possible strategies and solutions.  Through the early 1900s, legislatures dominated by white Democrats ratified new constitutions and laws creating barriers to voter registration and more complex election rules. Black voter registration and turnout dropped markedly in the South as a result. Men who had been voting for thirty years in the South were told they did not “qualify” to register. As a result the Niagara Movement began and years later, 7 of the members joined the board of the NAACP. The NAACP spent a decade seeking federal legislation against lynching. However, Southern Democrats voted as a block against it or used the filibuster in the Senate to block its passage.  Southern states, at the time, were dominated by Democrats. They created “white only” primaries to block blacks from the political process.

Franklin Roosevelt was the Democratic President of the U.S from 1933-1945.  While in office, Roosevelt refused to support the Costigan-Wagner Anti-Lynching Bill that would have punished sheriffs who failed to protect their prisoners from lynch mobs. Even after the lynching of Rubin Stacy in 1935, which drew National attention, Roosevelt refused to budge. Why? He was afraid of the political ramifications to his career.

In 1958, it was the Republican party and President Dwight Eisenhower who sent troops to Arkansas to desegregate schools. He also established the Civil Rights Commission and appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the Supreme Court which resulted in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision ending school segregation.

In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was finally passed under Lyndon Johnson, with a Republican majority.  LBJ asked Republican Senator Dirksen, the Senate minority leader to assist him in passing the bill, and as a result Dirksen played a pivotal role in the passage of the Act.  Prior to his assassination,  President Kennedy called the congressional leaders to the White House in 1963 to line up votes for the bill’s passage. A Democrat and avid segregationist from Virginia, Howard W. Smith,  indicated his intention to keep the bill bottled up indefinitely. When taking office for Kennedy, President Johnson asked for support from his friend and mentor Senator Richard Russell, who refused. A Democrat from Georgia, and the leader of the Southern Democrats in the Senate, Russell and his followers continued to oppose the civil rights bill to the very end. The final vote was 72-18. Republicans had the majority of the “yeas” and all the ‘nays, came from Democrats. If it had fallen on the shoulders of  Democrats alone to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it never would have passed.

Even Congressman Jessie Jackson Jr, former Democratic Congressman and African-American,  explained in an interview with Angela McGlowan on her book “Bamboozled,” that the Democrats were the party of segregation and said,

“There is no doubt that the Democratic Party is the party of the Confederacy, historically, that the Democratic Party’s flag is the Confederate flag.  It was our party’s flag.  That Jefferson Davis was a Democrat, that Stonewall Jackson strongly identified with the Democratic Party, that secessionists in the South saw themselves as Democrats and were Democrats.  That so much of the Democratic Party’s history, since it is our nation’s oldest political party, has its roots in slavery.”

Now, lets talk about the Jim Crow laws. In 1885 a southern black journalist, T. McCants Stewart said,

“I can stop in and drink a glass of soda and be more politely waited upon than in some parts of New England.” 

Why?

The Republicans had passed amendments to the Constitution that had given blacks the vote, citizenship and equal protection under the law. However  a national Democratic party compromise to gain Southern support for the presidential election resulted in the government withdrawing federal troops from the South returning it to white rule. As the Republican party had fallen from national power, blacks would lose all the rights they had gained and their rights and freedoms would be made illegal through Jim Crow laws, passed by Southern, white Democrats.

Based on so much history in supporting slavery and Jim Crow laws, why do Democrats continue to win 95% of the black vote?  Stephen A. Smith recommends,

“For one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican.”

Why not? The majority of blacks have been voting for Democrats and have seen no improvements in their lives.  The statistics speak for themselves. President Obama’s approval ratings remains high within the black community, however, his policies have hurt them dramatically. The U.S labor force participation rate for blacks is currently at 61% and for black teenagers, it is 25.7%. The unemployment rate for black adults is over 10% and for teenagers is at 25%. The percentage of blacks below the poverty rate has also increased under Obama at 27.2%, and household incomes have fallen to $34,598. Home ownership has fallen and food stamp recipients have risen from 7.4 million to 12.2 million between 2008 and 2013 under Obama.

A black activist, Alfonzo Rachel explains in his recent video, where he speaks to the black community, why the Democrats are the party of slavery and victimization,

“You do realize that slavery was abolished like 150 years ago? Yet your mind is still in the fields, a place where you have never been. Yet you want to stay brain chained to a place where Democrats wanted to keep you and still want to keep you. You think the Democrats have changed and that Republicans are not the party of Lincoln anymore.  Democrats haven’t changed. They still want you to be dependent on the master and there still dependent on you, but now instead of using blacks to farm cotton they now use you to farm votes. And you have been suckered into believing that this off-balance circle of dependency is Democrats doing something for black folks. If Democrats do so much for you, why are you still so angry? Why are you still saying we shall overcome as if it hasn’t already  happened. I will tell you why  overcoming hasn’t happened for you, because you have been suckered into voting for the party that you were supposed to overcome.”

I think Stephen A. Smith’s recommendation makes sense. If blacks lives have not improved under Democratic rule, then why not make a change? Why not take a chance and try a vote for a Republican. You might be surprised.
