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.

Saul Alinsky is Alive And Well On Campuses Across The Country!

hillary-alinsky

Who, you ask, is Saul Alinsky? He was a self-proclaimed radical who supported guerilla tactics and civil disobedience to get what he wanted. In 1971 he wrote about his book “Rules for Radicals,

The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power,”  “Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”

Another notable quote from Alinsky,

“Lest we forget, at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to, the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history, the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”

Hillary Clinton admired Alinsky and even chose to write her thesis on his book. David Brock referred to her as “Alinsky’s daughter” in 1966’s The Seduction of Hillary Rodham. At the request of the White House, Wellesley College sealed her 1968 thesis because it showed, “the extent to which she internalized and assimilated the beliefs and methods of Saul Alinsky.” It was eventually opened to the public in 2001.  Alinsky offered Clinton a job, which she turned down to go into politics, commenting,

“Alinsky said I would be wasting my time, but my decision was an expression of my belief that the system could be changed from within.”

One of Alinsky’s rules  says,

* Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

This rule is now being utilized to destroy Dr. Carol M. Swain of  Vanderbilt University.  A student started a petition via Change.org calling for the job of Dr. Swain of “unprofessional intimidation on social media” and “discriminatory practices in the classroom.”  Even though the student has since recanted his comments, the damage to professor Swain has been done. In the midst of all this we have to ask, how students can yell discrimination and demand respect while they attack and attempt to destroy the career of  successful African-American conservative professor?

Who, you ask, is Professor Carol Swain? She was born in Bedford Virginia and grew up in a shack without running water. She was raised with 11 siblings and dropped out of school in the eighth grade. Even after a childhood spent in poverty, Swain earned her GED, while working as a cashier at McDonalds, a door to door salesperson as well as an assistant in a retirement facility. She eventually gained her Associate degree from Virginia Western Community College, a B.S. in criminal justice from Roanoke College and a master’s degree in law from Yale. She then completed her Ph.D in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received tenure as an associate professor of politics and public policy at Princeton  and currently teaches at Vanderbilt University. She has published multiple award-winning books and has written op-eds in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, The Huffington Post and the USA Today.  Needless to say, I could go on and on with a list of her accomplishments.

She epitomizes the American Dream. She not only tells us, but shows us what anyone is capable of doing if they live in the United States and choose to work hard.  But why has she has become the recent target of the chaos that has erupted on college campuses around the country? One thought might be that a current portion of an entitled college population is shutting down free speech and demanding hard-working successful Americans pay their way. It doesn’t matter who they destroy in the process, what lies they propagate to get their way, as long as they get a free ride.

Ben Carson, presidential candidate who attended Yale discussed the demonstrations on The Kelly file saying,

“Well we’re being a little bit too tolerant, I guess you might say, accepting infantile behavior, I don’t care which side it comes from. To say that I have the right to violate your civil rights because you’re offending me is un-American. It is unconstitutional. And the officials at these places must recognize that and have the moral courage to stand up it. Because if they don’t, it will grow, it will exacerbate the situation and we will move much further toward anarchy than anybody can imagine, and much more quickly.”

In a interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News, Keely Mullen, an organizer for the Million Student March, laid out the demands of the students,

*Free public college

*Cancellation of all student debt

*A $15 minimum wage

Cavuto asked Mullen who she thought she pick up the tab for all these demands and she replied,

“The 1 percent of people who are hoarding the wealth and causing a catastrophe students are facing.”

Cavuto replied with the following question,

“If the 1 percent just had their taxes raised a few years ago back to almost 40 percent then to pay for the healthcare law, they had them raised another few percentage points, then they had their deductions limited to raise another couple of points — depending on the state or locality — they’re pushing over about 50 percent in taxes. “How much more do you think they should pay?”

Needless to say, the look of constant confusion on Mullen’s face and the lack of any sensical responses said it all. When advised, by Cavuto, that taking 100% of the wealthy’s money, wouldn’t even be able to keep Medicare going for three years, she replied,

“Yeah, I don’t believe that.”  “Yeah, I’m sorry, that just sounds completely ludicrous to me.”

I guess she is unaware that the U.S. government spends about $7  million dollars ever minute. With uniformed responses like that you have to ask yourself what they are teaching our young people in colleges across the country? The American people are already being robbed by the government, but now our so-called future leaders are demanding that we hand over all our money to pay their way? Bernie Sanders, who has traveled to colleges across the country has been spreading the same message to our students; everything should be free and paid for by the evil rich. In an interview with CNBC, Sanders said he would not be opposed to a 90% tax.

This movement among college students is not about the American Dream, it is about getting a  free ride paid for by those of  who have worked hard to gain an education and the appropriate experience to become successful contributors to the United States society. It is about instant gratification, not hard work. It is about destroying those, including professor Slain, who refuse to bend to the Rules of Saul Alinsky; those willing to stand up and fight for the values and ethics that result in becoming one of the many successful contributors to society among us.
