Trump Delivers Big at CPAC 2021: “We Have the Republican Party”

Newsmax.com reports that

Putting to rest talk of a third party to break off from the GOP, former President Donald Trump said there will be only the Republican Party united, all the way.

“I want you to know that I’m going to continue to fight right by your side,” Trump said Sunday as the headliner at the American Conservative Union Conference on Sunday in Orlando, Florida. “We will do what we’ve done right from the beginning, which is to win.

“We’re not starting new parties. You know, they kept saying, ‘he’s going to start a brand new party.’ We have the Republican party. It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before. I am not starting a new party. That was fake news. Fake news.”

Trump vowed at CPAC the party will fight to defeat “radical Democrats” in future elections.

“Brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to oppose the radical Democrats, the fake news media, and their toxic cancel culture: Something new to our ears – cancel culture,” Trump said early in his speech.

“No, that would be brilliant: Let’s start a new party; let’s divide our vote so that you could never win. No we’re not interested in that.”

The speech to CPAC was Trump’s first public appearance since he left office 39 days ago. Since then, he’s kept an uncharacteristically low profile, hampered in large part because he is banned from Twitter and Facebook in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol that led to his impeachment and subsequent acquittal in the Senate.

In emailed statements and a handful of interviews to friendly outlets, he’s blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, eulogized talk show host Rush Limbaugh and made unfounded allegations of election fraud — all while avoiding questions about his future in the party.

His remarks ratified the consensus of the conference that this is not a conservative movement wallowing in its loss to Democrat Joe Biden as much as it’s a government-in-waiting, counting down the three years and 11 months for Trump to “Make America Great Again” again.

In a straw poll, 97% of attendees approved of his leadership of the party, 70% want him to run again and 55% said he was their preferred candidate in 2024. (The other top contenders were Trump loyalists: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, followed by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Donald Trump Jr.)

Trump’s rousing reception at the most important conservative gathering on the calendar highlights just how much Trump has transformed the movement in just five years.

In 2016, Trump abruptly canceled his appearance at the event amid plans for a walkout from conservatives who questioned his commitment to the cause and demands that he answer questions from a moderator like the other candidates.

On Sunday, he was the closer of a three-day festival of Trump-flavored conservatism that bore his undeniable imprint.

The conference included at least seven panels credulously discussing Trump’s claims of a stolen 2020 election despite dozens of court rulings finding otherwise.

Major figures from the Trump cabinet — at least, those still loyal to the former president — were given speaking slots: Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell and Budget Director Russ Vought.

Prominent conservatives who have left Trump’s orbit were nowhere to be found, including McConnell and his wife, former Trump Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney. Even Trump’s old running mate, former Vice President Mike Pence, declined an invitation.

For those of you who missed it, you missed a stemwinder of a speech.

Trump looked well and rested and ready to faced the challenges which lay ahead.

Trump, as he warned during yesterday’s speech, will support Republican Candidates who will be running in the Midterm Elections in 2022 against those Vichy Republicans who recently voted to impeach him at the conclusion of Shampeachment 2.

So, to all of my fellow amateur political pundits:

Yes, boys and girls. Trump is going to be a Kingmaker.

And, then, Trump will, once again, run for the office of President of the United States of America in 2024.

And, as of today, there is no one on either side who will be able to beat him.

Why?

Just as Trump did, with his refusal early in his first Presidential Campaign to “act more presidential”, he continues to take his message directly to the American People.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and then his “MAGA Rallies”, Trump showed himself to be “A Man of the People”.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Democrat Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as the Democrats did in their National Covention and, quite frankly, do every day.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

When he speaks, Donald J. Trump makes average Americans feel good about themselves and their role in determining the future of our country.

They hear words of hope and encouragement from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

And, that, fellow Americans, is why President Trump will be elected President once again in 2024.

Nadler:…”God’s Will is of No Concern to This Congress”…So We Noticed

See the source image

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. – John Adams, 2nd President of the United States of America

ToddStarnes.com reports that

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) triggered a bunch of God-hating Democrats after he pointed out that God makes people uniquely male or female.

“When men or women claim to be able to choose their own sexual identity, they are making a statement that God did not know what he was doing when he created them,” the congressman said.

Steube accused Democrats of trying to define what it means to be male or female.

“The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design. Whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences,” the congressman said. “We are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today.”

That comment drew a fiery response from Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

“What any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress,” added New York Democrat Jerry Nadler.

Democrat Katherine Clark, of Massachusetts, hit out at any member of Congress who “describe transgender people as something less-than, as underserving, and illegitimate”.

May God have mercy on our nation and may He protect us from these godless, heathen Democrats.

Boys and girls, we really should not be surprised by the idiotic statement by Rep. Jerry Nadler.

For what now seems like an eternity, those on the Left side (along with some of those who claim to be on the Right Side) of the Political Aisle, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.

They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.

Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.

And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

So, when is all this Christianity in America going to “fade away” as predicted and hoped for by “the Smartest People in the Room”?

As polls have shown…not any time soon.

America remains a nation whose population consists of 70-75%, who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior and 92%, who believe in God.

However, if you read some of the comments posted on Websites and Facebook Political Pages, by self-appointed “pundits”, you would think that Christian Americans are the minority in this nation.

I can testify from personal experience, having caught flack for sticking to my Christian American Conservative Principles, since beginning my daily posts on this blog in April of 2010.

My posts, concerning American Christianity, seem to “touch a nerve” in both Liberals and Atheists, alike. (But, in at least some cases, I repeat myself.)

Their reaction has hardly been unexpected.

Of course, one of the Hot Button Issues, which those Liberals and Atheists who responded, over the years, immediately denied, was that our Founding Fathers were Christians and that our country was founded on a Judeo-Christian Belief System.

Evidently, they had never read anything, except what their like-minded, non-believing soothsayers, allowed them to. Or else, they would have read historical documents like President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, written on November 1, 1777, and found at wallbuilders.com:

The committee appointed to prepare a recommendation to the several states, to set apart a day of public thanksgiving, brought in a report; which was taken into consideration, and agreed to as follows:

Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther blessings as they stand in need of; and it having pleased him in his abundant mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable bounties of his common providence, but also smile upon us in the prosecution of a just and necessary war, for the defense and establishment of our unalienable rights and liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a measure to prosper the means used for the support of our troops and to crown our arms with most signal success:

It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

And it is further recommended, that servile labor, and such recreation as, though at other times innocent, may be unbecoming the purpose of this appointment, be omitted on so solemn an occasion.

Of course, the Poster Boy for the claim by Liberal/Atheist responders, concerning the Founders’ lack of Christianity, is Thomas Jefferson.

Atheists like to bring up the fact that he wrote a version of the Bible which left out Christ’s miracles. What they are reluctant to do, though, is explain why he wrote his book that way. David Barton explains on wallbuilders.com:

The reader [of a newspaper article which Barton is replying to], as do many others, claimed that Jefferson omitted all miraculous events of Jesus from his “Bible.” Rarely do those who make this claim let Jefferson speak for himself. Jefferson’s own words explain that his intent for that book was not for it to be a “Bible,” but rather for it to be a primer for the Indians on the teachings of Christ (which is why Jefferson titled that work, “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth”). What Jefferson did was to take the “red letter” portions of the New Testament and publish these teachings in order to introduce the Indians to Christian morality. And as President of the United States, Jefferson signed a treaty with the Kaskaskia tribe wherein he provided—at the government’s expense—Christian missionaries to the Indians. In fact, Jefferson himself declared, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus.” While many might question this claim, the fact remains that Jefferson called himself a Christian, not a deist.

Atheist Activists and young and/or misinformed Liberals and self-proclaimed “Libertarians” (but, in a lot of cases, I repeat myself), who reply to my posts, insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square.

Relying on Far Left Ideologues or their own opinion as their “highest authority”, they continue their push to eliminate the practice of American Christianity and the Traditional American Morality and Ethics which go with it from Everyday American Life, attempting to regulate Christians’ role in American Society as remaining unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, on Sunday mornings, only.

Or, as Actor and Professional Wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would say, Modern American Liberals want American Christians to

Sit down, shut up, and know your role!

Unfortunately for them, our Constitution and the Bill of Rights reinforced our rights as Americans to practice our Faith as We see fit. 

The First Amendment to the Constitution still holds.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Being filled with human beings, America’s churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the Name of the Lord.

Churches today have to walk a fine line.

The spiritual battle raging between the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.

Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.

Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?

Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?

Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.

It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “36 genders”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.

Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?

And, a second and final thought, found in the Word of God, occurred to me while watching “Chair” Jerry Nadler act like the south end of a north-bound mule

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. – Psalms 14:1

Biden Frantically Calls for Unity While Only 52% of Americans View Him as President

According to RasmussenReports.com

Many anti-Trumpers insisted throughout President Trump’s four years in office that he was not their president, and a surprisingly high number of voters feel the same way about President-elect Biden.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 56% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that Biden is their president. Thirty-four percent (34%) say he is not, while 10% more are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Slightly fewer voters (52%) say their family and friends consider Biden their president. Thirty-two percent (32%) say they do not, with another 16% undecided.

Eighty-four percent (84%) of Democrats recognize fellow Democrat Biden as their president, but only 28% of Republicans and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree. Sixty-one percent (61%) of Republicans and 34% of unaffiliateds say Biden is not their president.

The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted December 15-16, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Looking back at the presidential election, Trump voters overwhelmingly say they voted for the president, but only 56% of Biden voters say they were voting for him rather than against the president.

The older the voter, the more likely they are to say Biden is not their president.

Men see Biden as their president more than women do. Women are more likely to be undecided.

Blacks (67%) feel more strongly than whites (52%) and other minority voters (62%) that Biden is their president and are even more convinced that family and friends agree.

Seventy percent (70%) of voters who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing say Biden is not their president. Among those who Strongly Disapprove of Trump’s job performance, 90% say Biden is.

U.S. voters now regard each other as a bigger enemy than Russia or North Korea and just as dangerous as China.

Most voters suspect the news media buried the Hunter Biden story until after the election and think there’s a good chance that Biden was involved in his son’s questionable overseas dealings.

So, in reality, only 52% consider Sleepy Joe to be their President.

The question about “family and friends” is always more accurate than a direct question because of the intimidation factor.

However, if you watch and listen to the Main Stream Media, including Fox news, Biden is the undisputed winner of the election and holds the office of President-Elect.

There only problem with that is there is no such office.

Biden has no authority over the American People.

And, with God’s Grace, he never will.

For what seems like an eternity, the Liberals in the Main Stream Media ands those on Capitol Hill have insisted that their political ideology is shared by the majority of American Voters.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here in the Heartland, Americans still get up every morning and go to work.

We believe in God and Country and in Traditional American Faith and Values.

And, we can’t stand snobs and cheaters.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the only people left among the professional politicians in today’s Far Left Democratic Party.

That is why Sleepy Joe is calling for “unity”.

That demented old fool has no idea how badly torqued off average Americans are at the massive fraud which ruined the 2020 Presidential Election, propelling a guy who could not even draw 200 people to a campaign rally to the office of United States President, the most powerful office in the Free World.

The tone-deafness of the Democrats, along with their enormous egos has placed them in a bubble, unable and unwilling to hear the shouts of anger rising up from average Americans who have had their votes STOLEN.

Now, I do not know if President Trump and his team are going to win any of their lawsuits against the theft of the election.

I do know a couple of things, however…

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18

The Democrats will pay for their crimes, sooner or later.

and

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.- Edmund Burke

The President has invited everyone to Washington on January 6th.

Go if you can.

Meanwhile, this average American is going to keep shining the spotlight on these cockroaches.

Veterans Day 2020 and the “No Greater Love” of Our Brightest and Best

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13

D-Day, also called the Battle of Normandy, was fought on June 6, 1944, between the Allied nations and German forces occupying Western Europe. To this day, 74 years later, it  still remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Almost three million troops crossed the English Channel from England to Normandy to be used as human cannon fodder in an invasion of occupied France.

Among the young men who stepped off those boats, in a hail of gunfire, was a fellow named Edward, whom everyone called Ned, from the small town of Helena, Arkansas.  Already in his young life, Ned had been forced to drop out of school in the sixth grade, in order to work at the local movie theatre to help support his mother, brother, and sister, faced with the ravages of the Great Depression.

He was a gentle man who loved to laugh and sing, having recorded several 78 rpm records in the do-it-yourself booths of the day. And now, he found himself, a Master Sergeant in an Army Engineering Unit, stepping off a boat into the unknown, watching his comrades being mercilessly gunned down around him.

Ned, along with the rest of his unit who survived the initial assault, would go on to assist in the cleaning out of the Concentration Camps, bearing witness to man’s inhumanity to man.

The horrors he saw had a profound effect on Ned.  One which he would keep to himself for the remainder of his life.  While his children knew that he served with an Engineering Unit in World War II, they did not know the full extent of his service, until they found his medal, honoring his participation in the Invasion of Normandy, going through his belongings, after he passed away on December 29, 1997.

That brave American Hero was my Daddy.

On a night in 1966, I was 7 years old, laying on my family’s den couch in Memphis, TN, watching my favorite TV Series “Batman” with a fever of 105, brought about by a severe bronchial infection. Tending to me were 3 veterans of World War II: my Daddy, my Uncle “R” (Robert), US Air Force, and my Uncle Perriman, a full-blooded Indian from Albuquerque, who was an Army Corpsman.

Those three veterans, now all gone, took turns putting cold wash cloths under my arms and on my forehead, until my fever finally broke, sometime during the night.

Today being Veterans Day, I find myself thinking about my Daddy,

While watching TV and perusing through Facebook Political Pages a while back, I stumbled upon a meme that, as a Christian American, having been led to Christ by my Daddy, almost made me lose my witness.

This special individual had a posted a painting of Adolph Hitler in full Nazi Uniform, with the graphic

HOW MANY LIKES CAN THIS WWII VETERAN GET?

Needless to say, I let young “Skillet” know how I felt about his attempt to be “conversational”.

He suggested that I was “triggered”.

I replied that “This isn’t about being triggered. It’s about the difference between right and wrong.”

Please allow me to elaborate…

There has been a question gnawing at me for quite a while now, ever since all of the Astroturf National Protests featuring the Women’s Marches, the School Walkouts for Gun Control, illegal aliens, and millennials in desperate need of a “safe space” dressed in black hoods calling themselves “Antifa” started greeting average Americans like you and me when we turned on the television to watch the news, the Soviet-style “Impeachment Inquiry” held by the Democrats to overturn the results of the 2016 President Election, and now, the blatant attempt through widespread voter fraud by the Far Left Democratic Party to steal the 2020 Presidential Election.

If America was led by the likes of Modern American Liberals during the frightening days when Hitler rose to power after the Beer Hall Putsch and that faithful day of December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy”, while at the same time the young Americans of that era were the millennials of today, would America have stood up the Axis of Evil?

Would the millennials that we are watching throwing hissy fits and railing against the President and traditional American Faith and Values on the Evening News and the Social Media have the guts to do what the Greatest Generation did?

Would Modern American Liberals be willing to make the sacrifices that my Daddy and Mother and the rest of their generation did?

I seriously doubt it.

There wouldn’t be long lines at the Armed Forces Recruitment Office trying to sign up to serve their country.

Heck, these days it is hard to get them to move out of their parents’ house, much less be willing to fight and die for their country.

There are those millennials out there who would rather defecate on our flag than to die for it.

And, while they talk a good game about being “Stronger Together”, when the rubber meets the road, it’s every man (or woman) for themselves.

Instead of the Greatest Generation, we are presently having to deal with the selfish “Generation Snowflake”.

It’s like watching an angry child in their Mom’s shopping cart at Walmart.

There are no absolutes with them.

A lot of them simply have no “attitude of gratitude” and no sense of the blessings which they have received simply by being born in America.

Nor do they seem to understand where this freedom which they flaunt comes from and how much American Blood was spilled so that they might act like ungrateful, ill-mannered brats on Social Media.

And, when I think about it, that it why it was such a shock to them that the rest of us voted against their vision of America on November 8th, 2016. In fact, it was such a shock to these culturally hip Americans that they have been throwing a National Temper Tantrum over the election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President ever since and taking it out on all of us average Americans on Social Media every chance that they get.

Proverbs 22:6 advises us to

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

What the disrespectful members of this generation continue to demonstrate on a daily basis is the fact that they did not have a “Board of Education” applied to their “seat of Knowledge” when the situation called for it.

“Triggered”? I guess I was.

Because my Daddy and Mother raised me in the way I should go.

Today and every day, may God bless our Veterans and may we, as grateful Americans, always honor them for their service.

The War on Christianity: Democrats’ React to Trump’s Nominating Amy Coney Barrett, a Christian Conservative Wife and Mother, to Supreme Court

It was an honor to be at the @WhiteHouse when Pres.@realDonaldTrump announced his nominee for #SCOTUS—Amy Coney Barrett. From what I’ve read, she is more than qualified, has a brilliant legal mind, & will interpret the Constitution as it is written. – Franklin Graham, Twitter, 9/26/20

FoxNews.com reports that

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Saturday said the Senate should not act on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court until after “the American people select their next president and the next Congress.”

“Supreme Court decisions affect our everyday lives, and the Constitution was designed to give voters a voice on who makes those decisions,” Biden tweeted Saturday, just after President Trump nominated Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy left by late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“The Senate shouldn’t act until after the American people select their next president and the next Congress,” Biden continued. “Americans deserve to be heard.”

Biden, this week, called Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s efforts to push a nominee through the Senate before Election Day an “exercise in raw political power.”

Biden pointed to the controversy surrounding Obama’s appointment of Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy left by late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016, and argued that “having made this their standard when it served their interest, they cannot, just four years later, change course when it doesn’t serve their ends.”

Senate Republicans refused to hold a hearing or a vote on Garland’s nomination, citing the imminent 2016 presidential election.

Biden has refused to release a list of potential Supreme Court picks should he be elected president, saying that he would make his nominations to the high court on a bipartisan basis.

“If I win, I will make my choice for the Supreme Court—not as part of a partisan election campaign—but as prior presidents did,” Biden said last week. “Only after consulting Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Senate—and seeking their advice before I ask for their consent.”

He added: “As everyone knows, I have made it clear that my first choice for the Supreme Court will make history as the first African American woman justice.”

The Trump campaign has criticized Biden for failing to release a list of his own, suggesting he is “hiding” something.

“We know he’s a tool of the radical left, so the only answer must be that he doesn’t want Americans to see the radical leftists he would appoint, with judicial histories littered with extremist rulings on issues like abortion, religious freedom, immigration, Second Amendment rights and government regulation,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News this week.

Meanwhile, Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said that Trump’s choice to nominate Barrett would “harm millions of Americans.”

“Trump’s hand-picked successor to Justice Ginsburg’s seat makes it clear: they intend to destroy the Affordable Care Act & overturn Roe,” Harris tweeted, referring to the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

“This selection would move the court further right for a generation & harm millions of Americans,” she said.

Also Saturday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez also weighed in, saying the president’s choice “confirms what we already knew.”

“Everything we care about is at stake in this election. Health care is on the ballot. Reproductive rights are on the ballot. LGBTQ rights, voting rights, and workers’ rights are on the ballot. The future of our planet is on the ballot,” he said in a statement. “Today’s announcement is an affront not simply to our values as a democracy, but to every organizer and activist who has fought, marched, and voted to make this country live up to its founding ideals.”

Perez added: “We must send a loud, clear, and unified message to Trump and every one of his Republican enablers at the ballot box in November by voting them out of office.”

The comments come after Trump formally nominated Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court from the White House Rose Garden Saturday. Coney Barrett accepted the nomination, pledging to “discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability.”

“I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution,” she said Saturday. “I will do equal right to the poor and the rich and faithfully and impartially discharge my duties under the United States Constitution.”

Why are the Democrats so scared of a strong Christian Conservative American Woman with a loving husband and seven children, including two they adopted from Haiti and one who has special needs, who possesses an impeccable legal background which makes her more than qualified to serve on the Supreme Court?

Consider, if you will, a country in which its president is being fought against by municipal leaders of the other political party for trying to keep his promise to protect his country’s citizens for riots and killing sprees in their cities.

…a country where a black race car driver intentionally damages his sport by identifying a rope used for closing a garage door as a “noose” “awakening’ executives as NASCAR resulting in a ban on Confederate Flags at the races and a “solidarity march”, only to have the FBI find that the offending object was never a noose at all, just a way to close the garage door.

…a country in which a political party supports abortion up until birth and its Presidential Candidate calls a sitting President a “racist” without proof, while ignoring his own well-documented racism.

“You are traveling through a previously unknown country, a country whose population has politically been torn asunder, a country whose Democratic Leadership have forsworn its traditional faith and values to embrace those of its enemies. A country whose great promise is once again being realized, despite the best efforts of its enemies within. There’s a signpost up ahead. Next stop, the 2020 Presidential Election.”

This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, which Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.

And the thing is, it is not his fault.

The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.

In an article written for Decision Magazine dated February 12, 2012, America’s Pastor, Rev. Billy Graham, wrote on the subject of “Confusing Evil With Good”. Here are some excerpts…

Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.

Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.

The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” God has not changed. His standards have not been lowered. God still calls immorality a sin, and the Bible says God is going to judge it.

Honesty was once the hallmark of character. But it has been set aside with an “It’s all right if you don’t get caught” philosophy. Only when we are in court are we required to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

…How do we get our values so mixed up? How do we fall into this trap of Satan? For one thing, we’re shortsighted. We look for shortcuts to happiness. Our lust for immediate pleasure prompts us to think of evil as good.

In one of novelist John Steinbeck’s books he has a character saying: “If it succeeds, they will be thought not crooked but clever.” In our desire to achieve success quickly, it is easy to get our values mixed up and call evil good and good evil.

Another way to call evil good is to say that morals are relative. Someone has said: “As the occasion, so the behavior.” We have changed our moral code to fit our behavior instead of changing our behavior to harmonize with our moral code. Nothing is firm today. We are not on solid ground. Young people are shifting from one side to the other. Morally, they are drifting aimlessly without compass or guide.

Still another way that evil is called good is for the conscience to be perverted, and certainly our consciences today are perverted. But right is right even if nobody is right, and wrong is wrong even if everybody is wrong. God does not change the moral law to suit our behavior.

…The modern conscience has been twisted and distorted so badly that it is difficult to tell what is genuine and what is false.

Self-centeredness is another reason we are so inclined to call evil good. When something brings profit or pleasure to us we are inclined to call evil good, even though we know it is dead wrong. “But it’s what I’ve always wanted,” or, “It’s good for me, although I know it’s wrong” are the alibis we have manufactured to justify evil and call it good.

It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.

The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, if the Far Left Democrats have their way, so it would lead to America’s downfall.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Marxists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary (those of us who still get to go and are not “quarantined” at home).

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”

Because believe me, Americans…we are in one.

With his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, President Trump has fired a shot across the bow of those Americans who not only hate our country and our Traditional American Faith and Values, but who also look down at with disdain those of us who cherish them.

Isaiah 5:20 tells us

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 

Stay tuned, gentle readers. they are about to one again reveal themselves for the entire world to see.

Pray for our President.

Pray for Amy Coney Barrett.

Pray for our country.

And, vote on November 3rd.

As the Riots Continue, Those Who Escaped Socialist Countries Say That They Have Seen This Before

FoxNews.com reports that

One of the most memorable moments from the Republican National Convention came when Cuban-born Maximo Alvarez cautioned Americans against creeping socialism.

“I’ve seen movements like this before,” he warned last month.

The Florida businessman is hardly alone among those who fled socialist countries. On social media and in interviews with Fox News, other immigrants who settled in the U.S. say that recent political shifts here – including class warfare, riots and language policing, not to mention calls for expansive government programs – are starting to remind them of what they left behind. 

And they carry the same message as Alvarez, urging Americans not to repeat history.

Venezuela

“The millionaires, and anyone that was rich, were ‘the enemy of people’ in Venezuela,” Elizabeth Rogliani, a young woman who left Venezuela for America in 2008 and lives in Florida, said of her former country (though she cited a term that President Trump now controversially uses against the media).

She has been using her TikTok channel to try to tell people about that history.

Rogliani says she sees a parallel in politicians’ frequent attacks on “millionaires and billionaires.”

“Division between the classes was something that Hugo Chavez wanted — to make sure that poorer sectors of society hated anyone that was wealthy,” she said.

Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez often declared that being rich is bad.

He defined capitalism as the “kingdom of the egoism of inequality” and socialism as the “kingdom of love, equality, solidarity, peace and true democracy.”

Once, before Chavez became president in 1999, Venezuela was the wealthiest country in South America. Venezuela also has more untapped underground oil than any country in the world, even Saudi Arabia.

But after Chavez ruled for more than a decade — enacting strict price controls and seizing private businesses — the economy collapsed. Last month, after decades of mismanagement, the country’s last oil rig shut down. Millions have now fled amid mass starvation and violence.

Rogliani said that in America, her biggest fear comes not from any one policy proposal – but from the overall culture.

“Seeing these riots knocking those statues … it’s so similar,” she said.

In little-known history, Chavez’s government officially renamed “Columbus Day” to “Indigenous Resistance Day” in 2002.

“In 2004, the Columbus statue came down in Venezuela. It was torn down by mobs. People had been encouraged by Chavez’s rhetoric,” Rogliani said.

The origins of unrest in the U.S., of course, are very different and unique to this country. Activists have pressed for years to take down statues dedicated to the Confederacy, arguing the country should not be honoring those who fought on the side of slavery. The push has expanded in recent months, however, to target historical figures who had been less controversial but nevertheless were connected to slavery or other institutions. Meanwhile, protests and sometimes-related looting that have hit American cities this summer stemmed from anger over racial injustice and police brutality, following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Some protests continue to be peaceful, while cities such as Chicago, Portland and Seattle have dealt with more violent outbreaks for months.

Rogliani cautioned, however, that such unrest can be exploited. Chavez encouraged such thinking, Rogliani said, because he saw angry mobs as a powerful tool. 

Nicaragua

Several Latin American countries have seen an exodus of people fleeing to escape socialism. Nicaragua is one.

“What we see now has all the same characteristics as I saw there … violence, looting, damaging private property,” Roberto Bendana, a Nicaraguan immigrant in Texas, told Fox News of the recent violence in the U.S.

Bendana left Nicaragua after revolutionary socialists took power in 1981 and confiscated his father’s coffee farm.

“Even the flags! The protesters here in the U.S. are using the red and black flags,” Bendana said, noting Nicaraguan socialist revolutionaries used the same colors.

For his part, Biden maintains the proposed tax hikes would largely hit those making over $400,000. He told ABC last month the “very wealthy should pay a fair share,” along with corporations.

And the former vice president has rejected long-running efforts by the Trump campaign to tag him as aligned with socialists. 

“Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really?” Biden quipped last month, stressing he wants to keep the country safe from looting as well as “bad cops.”

Dating back to the primary, Biden had tensions with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a democratic socialist, over his plans for “Medicare-for-All” and other policies. But the democratic socialist wing’s influence over Democratic Party policies will be closely watched in the months and years ahead.

Gentle readers…do you realize what we are witnessing?

The purposeful unraveling of the safeguards which those before us have put in place in order that we might live in a society where we can feel safe to venture from our homes.

Not only that, but as the cry from the “New Bolsheviks” is becoming louder and more high-pitched to do away with traditional law and order, spineless Democrat Governors and Mayors are actually giving them what they want: anarchy.

Why do they want anarchy?

In an article titled “Marx, Theoretician of Anarchism, written by Maximilien Rubel in 1973, and found on Marxists.org, the writer makes the following observation…

Marxism as the ideology of a master class has succeeded in emptying the concepts of socialism and communism, as Marx and his forerunners understood them, of their original meaning and has replaced it with the picture of a reality which is its complete negation. Although closely linked to the other two, a third concept – anarchism – seems however to have escaped this fate of becoming a mystification. But while people know that Marx had very little sympathy for certain anarchists, it is not so generally known that despite this he still shared the anarchist ideal and objectives: the disappearance of the State. It is therefore pertinent to recall that in embracing the cause of working class emancipation, Marx started off in the anarchist tradition rather than in that of socialism or communism; and that, when finally he chose to call himself a “communist,” for him this term did not refer to one of the communist currents which then existed, but rather to a movement of thought and mode of action which had yet to be founded by gathering together all the revolutionary elements which had been inherited from existing doctrines and from the experience of past struggles.

…Marx developed a theory of anarchism; and further, (and) in fact it was he who was the first to provide a rational basis for the anarchist utopia and to put forward a project for achieving it.

For decades now, the Democrats have moved further and further left of the Political Spectrum until, at this point, the Democratic Party is a Far Left political entity, ridiculing, hating, and seeking to destroy America History, traditional faith and values, and, in the process, radically changing our Constitutional Republic into just another failed Democratic Socialist country.

Through the mobilization of “useful Idiots” like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and Hollywood celebrities, private and political power brokers have “taken advantage of a crisis” to make their move to stoke the fires of anarchy through the use of organized riots in major American cities.

They have used the death of George Floyd to attack and attempt to eliminate our first line of defense: “The Thin Blue Line”.

Because their efforts to take out President Trump continued to fail, these power brokers decided to follow the example of Vladimir Lenin, the disciple of Karl Marx, and start a revolution at the grass roots level with their own “New Bolsheviks”, the “useful idiots” who I mentioned earlier.

While I do not believe that they will be successful at this time on a national level, if we do not keep a strong American Patriot like President Trump in office, the Democrats’ dream of a Socialist Utopia ushered in through anarchy achieved by fiery rhetoric designed to shame Americans into not standing up to them.

They have already succeeding in having young Americans literally kiss the feet of those whom they have supposedly “offended”.

They have even succeeded in causing the cancellation of “Cops” after 32 years on television and “Live P.D.”, a very popular program on A&E.

The “useful idiots”as Marxist Revolutionaries have always called their puppets, are out of control and becoming more bold every day.

It is time for America to stand up for our country…

Before it is gone.

Dem Desperation Continues as Woodward Catches Flak From Libs About Keeping Trump’s Remarks About COVID-19 to Himself Until Now

FoxNews.com reports that

Bob Woodward is pushing back against critics who claim the veteran journalist should have immediately published remarks President Trump made about the coronavirus in the early months of the outbreak.

In a February interview Woodward conducted with Trump for the reporter’s forthcoming book, “Rage,” the president described the virus as “deadly stuff,” even as he publicly compared it to seasonal flu. A month later, Trump admitted to Woodward that “I still like playing it [the virus] down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple, whose paper published the audio of Trump’s comments, tweeted Wednesday evening that he had interviewed Woodward and pressed him about the blowback he has received.

According to Wemple, when asked why he did not go public with Trump’s comments about the virus being “deadly,” Woodward explained he “didn’t know where Trump was getting his information, whether it was true, and so on.”

“It took him three months to nail down all the reporting about what Trump knew about coronavirus, when he learned it and how all that related to the public pronouncements he was making,” Wemple tweeted of Woodward. “It wasn’t until May that he put those pieces together.”

According to the media critic, Woodward flatly denied that the content of his interviews with the president would have “saved lives” if they were publicized sooner.

“Asked directly whether earlier publication of his interviews would have saved lives, Woodward responded, ‘No! How?'” Wemple wrote. “He pointed out that Trump made that comment on March 19, and he had already made an Oval Office address on March 11. Confirmed cases were taking off.”

Wemple followed, “Woodward did say that if anything he gathered was a legitimate public health issue, he would have gone to The Post and sought to have it published forthwith. ‘It wasn’t. It wasn’t,’ he told me.”

“Rage” was written after Trump spoke to Woodward – who is an associate editor for the paper — for 18 on-the-record interviews between December 2019 and July 2020. The Post reported Wednesday on passages from the book, including Woodward’s discussions with the president.

While many were quick to slam Trump, others questioned why the Washington Post and Woodward sat on the information for over six months. The Post’s motto is “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” but the paper’s famed editor apparently shelved key information until the week before Woodward’s book is set to hit stores.

“This should’ve been reported to the American people when he said it, not saved for the book,” one critic, Spectator U.S. Washington editor Amber Athey, wrote.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday that Trump agreed to the series of interviews because he is “the most transparent president in history.”

McEnany also denied that Trump intentionally misled the American public about the threat of COVID-19.

“Absolutely not,” she said. “This president at a time when you’re facing insurmountable challenges, it is important to express confidence, it is important to express calm… the president has never lied to the American public on the threat of COVID.”

For those of you who may not know who Bob Woodward is, he has worked for The Washington Post since 1971 as a reporter and is now an associate editor there..

In 1972, he was paired up with fellow Investigative Reporter Carl Bernstein. In 1973, they were the ones who broke the Watergate Scandal wide open, leading to the bringing down of President Richard M. Nixon.

A darling of the Democratic Party, his latest sensational offering has all of the validity of Michael Wolff’s poorly received book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”, which came out and quickly went down in flames.

Now, for the next few news cycles, Woodward will be the MSM’s shiny “new” or, at least, recycled weapon which they will brandish at every opportunity as the Vanguard/Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party. Just like everything else controversial that Modern Liberals have latched onto as gospel, it doesn’t matter if it actually happened or not, as long as the MSM can run with it, as if it is God’s Honest Truth.

At least, until it gets marked down to $2.00 a copy at Walmart.

Remember “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot?”

I have never seen more chest heaving angst, grief, and uncontrollable anger over a Presidential Election in all of my 61 years.

Liberals are so desperate to thwart the progress that President Trump is making in bringing our country back from the Chinese Coronavirus, both economically and as a World Leader, that they are literally willing to sell their soul to Satan, through the dissemination of lies and innuendos which they desperately hope will result in “Sleepy Joe Hiden” becoming the 46th President of the United States of America.

Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to push Biden across the finish line, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.

Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…

The majority of Americans will see through Mr. Woodward’s book for what it is: a work of fiction published for political propaganda purposes.

It doesn’t matter how many Facebook Political Pages that you post Liberal articles about it on.

None of these fake news stories, interviews with disreputable authors, Democrat-heavy polls, and photo-shopped pictures and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook are making any difference to average Americans.

The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

And now, they expect us to believe the Fake News and downright lies which they are desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office and which you are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and you, in your shared madness can poor old demented Joe Biden in office as a placeholder for Kamala Harris.

Americans do not care what the Main Stream Media…or you…think.

They are the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party and you are their unpaid (usually) stable boys and girls.

They produce it and you shovel it.

If you Petulant Provocateurs and Nattering Nabobs of Negativity would work with the rest of us toward strengthening our Sovereign Nation as hard as you are working in your efforts to turn us into another failed Socialist Nation, just think what could be accomplished.

But, then again, that would require ethics and a love of country,

Both things, which sadly, seem to be devalued in your political philosophy.

Are Democrats Beginning to Have a Feeling of Deja Vu About the 2020 Presidential Election? They’d Better

FoxNews.com reports that

Public polls show former Vice President Joe Biden entering the post-Labor Day sprint to November holding a substantial lead over President Trump — and all Democratic Party activists and operatives can think of is the looming sense of déjà vu hanging over their heads.

In interviews, those who work on Democratic campaigns voice suspicion over Biden’s lead, confident that something else will go wrong just as it did four years ago when Hillary Clinton’s advantage evaporated in the weeks leading up to Election Day. Many go so far as to compare their skepticism to a form of post-traumatic stress.


“It’s just PTSD,” said Steve Schale, a Florida Democratic strategist who runs a pro-Biden super PAC. “There’s nobody actually working on this race that feels overly confident at this point. There’s a long way to go.”


Some Democrats worried that Trump’s focus on protests in big cities would swing an electorate that has so far paid more attention to the botched handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic downturn. 

But a new round of polls show Biden maintaining his advantage after both the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Since the end of the GOP convention, Biden has led public surveys in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, Wisconsin and Florida. Trump has led in one survey of Florida voters, and the two men are tied in another, released Tuesday by NBC News.


Nationally, Biden’s post-convention lead stands anywhere between 2 points, in an Emerson survey, and 10 points, in polls conducted by Quinnipiac University, the University of Southern California and CBS News.


Democrats say they aren’t buying it.


“The polls are good omens, but if you didn’t think Trump could win in 2016 and you don’t trust him now given all his administration has done to break trust with American citizens, then you’re hesitant to call it,” said Katy Siddall, a Democratic strategist in Iowa, another state where polls have showed a surprisingly close race.


…“In 2016, it was cool to criticize people raising concerns in the Clinton-Trump polling as ‘bed-wetters’ and confidently point to the blue wall. Today that’s not really an acceptable point of view, so instead everyone is over-indexing for doom and gloom,” said Andy Barr, who runs a Democratic consulting firm in Arizona. “As an industry we’re always more cocky after winning the previous cycle and always more nervous after losing.”


But with hindsight, Democrats say they underestimated Trump’s appeal to voters and that some may have allowed their certainty that he could not win to get the better of them.

There is no such apathy this year.


“Democrats could almost not conceive of a path to a loss,” said Joe Zepecki, a Wisconsin-based Democratic strategist. “It’s better to be holding a statistically significant lead and be nervous as all hell than to hold a modest lead and not be nervous at all.”


Democrats also marvel at the zeal that Trump’s most committed fans show. Flotilla parades, like one this weekend on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas, that inadvertently sank five boats, are easy punch lines, but the Trump flags that fly from homes are not so easily dismissed.


“The devotion of Trump voters, the many flags and homemade signs they fly, and the level of ardor they are showing is remarkable. Those visible signs you don’t usually see for a political candidate,” said Dave Waymire, a Michigan-based operative. “You see those signs and go, whoa.”


Some party strategists roll their eyes at the constant paranoia, the sense that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. But they say they can use those nerves to keep up a frenetic pace through Election Day.


“The wild swings between complacency and panic are not helpful, but I’d rather have people be nervous than take anything for granted,” said Josh Schwerin, a senior adviser to Priorities USA, the largest Democratic super PAC. “Our expectation is that the race will tighten as we get closer to Election Day, and it’s going to take a level-headed grind from everyone involved to win this thing.”


Every four years, presidential contenders tell their voters that the upcoming election is the most important in their lifetime. This time, as the pandemic spreads and the economy lies in tatters, the party strategists working on the race believe it to their core.


“The stakes are just off the charts,” said Brian Brokaw, who ran Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-Calif.) 2010 campaign for state attorney general. “It’s better to be up in the polls than down, but on the other hand at this point we’re smart enough to know that you can never get comfortable.”

I do not believe that the Democratic Analysts are any more aware of the political opinions of average Americans living in the Heartland than they were 4 years ago.

Today’s Democrats, for all of their “common man” B.S., still believe that all of America is like the Northeastern Beltway and the Left Coast…and it they aren’t, they should be.

If the Democrats were confident in he ability of Biden and Harris to win in November, they would have to have their minions in the Main Stream Media publish fake news stories featuring anonymous sources designed to bring President Trump down or at least hurt his reelection campaign.

Their plans to bring Trump down have all failed and will continue to fail.

The devotion of “Trump fans” which the Democrats have “noticed” is not being swayed by the Democrats’ fake news stories and propaganda videos.

Average Americans, just as they did in 2016, are paying attention to what they see and hear on Fox News, OANN, and social Media.

That is why Trump continues to pack them in at his MAGA Rallies and Biden can’t fill a church in Kenosha.

Americans still vote with their pocket books. They can see that the economy is coming back.

They also know who is going to increase their taxes in order to “share the wealth”.

The false bravado of Kamala Harris notwithstanding, the Dems know that they are going to lose again to Donald J. Trump unless they can limit the appearances of both Biden and Harris, who have become liabilities.

And, even that has not helped.

It is hard to hide the fact that Biden is suffering from dementia and that Harris has the personality of a cheese grater.

I know…they could have them both drop out due to “Health Concerns” and have “Mooch” Obama and “San Fran Nan” Pelosi run in their place.

Oh, wait…that would not be any better, would it?

Dems and MSM Try to Damage Trump With a Fake News Story Featuring Four Anonymous Sources…Goebbels Would Be Proud

untitled (328)

https://twitter.com/toddstarnes/status/1302064191507963904?s=20

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump canceled a planned 2018 trip to a cemetery for American war dead in France because of the weather and not because of disdain for the slain soldiers who are buried there or concern about how the weather would affect his hair, two sources told Fox News, despite a report from The Atlantic making that claim.

Still, the details from that trip and other events described in the explosive piece remain a subject of dispute.

Two sources who were on the trip in question with Trump refuted the main thesis of The Atlantic’s reporting — that Trump canceled a trip to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, which is at the site of Belleau Wood, an important World War I battle, because he believed the dead soldiers to be “losers.”

The White House had said at the time the decision was made because of poor weather for flying Marine One and the fact that the cemetery was too far a distance for a motorcade to drive.

One of the sources who refuted the Atlantic’s reporting is not a fan of Trump. Both sources said that Trump was upset about not being able to go to Aisne-Marne and said they had never heard Trump refer to war dead at Aisne-Marne or in the battle of Bellau Wood as “losers” or “suckers.”

Both sources also noted that Trump was not worried about how the weather would affect his hair, as The Atlantic reported. Trump the next day stood in the rain for an hour at a different event.

The sources only rejected the claim about Aisne-Marne, and not other accounts where Trump is alleged to have insulted soldiers. Trump has previously gone after the late Sen. John McCain, who was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

…The White House was adamant that The Atlantic allegations are unfounded.

“Not a soul brave enough to put their name on any of these accusations,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday of the report. “That’s because they are false. Just another anonymously sourced story meant to tear down a commander in chief who loves our military and has delivered on the promises he’s made. What a disgrace!”

Former national security adviser John Bolton, who has openly opposed Trump, saying he will vote for neither the president nor Joe Biden in November, wrote a scathing memoir about his time in the White House. In a passage in that memoir, Bolton actually defends Trump over the decision not to go to the Aisne-Marne.

“Marine One’s crew was saying that bad visibility could make it imprudent to chopper to the cemetery,” Bolton wrote. “The ceiling was not too low for Marines to fly in combat, but flying POTUS was obviously something very different. If a motorcade were necessary, it could take between ninety and a hundred and twenty minutes each way, along roads that were not exactly freeways, posing an unacceptable risk that we could not get the President out of France quickly enough in case of an emergency. It was a straightforward decision to cancel the visit…”

Bolton later added: “The press turned canceling the cemetery visit into a story that Trump was afraid of the rain and took glee in pointing out that other world leaders traveled around during the day. Of course, none of them were the President of the United States, but the press didn’t understand that rules for US Presidents are different from rules for 190 other leaders who don’t command the world’s greatest military forces.”

Sources told Fox News the decision not to go to the cemetery was made by chief of staff John Kelly and his aide Zach Fuentes. Bolton further wrote that Kelly was the one who recommended the move, saying it was quite difficult for him to do because he is a Marine himself.

Trump personally addressed The Atlantic’s story on Twitter.

“The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance,” he wrote Friday. “Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against. Just like the Fake Dossier. You fight and and fight, and then people realize it was a total fraud!”

In a press conference Friday night, Trump took aim at Kelly, even claiming he “could have been” a source on the story. And he slammed the claims as “a hoax.”

Vice President Pence also called the report “absurd” on FOX Business Friday.

“Any suggestion that this president doesn’t love and respect the men and women of our armed forces and their families is absurd on its face to me because I have walked the grounds of Arlington National Cemetary side-by-side with President Donald Trump,” Pence said.

Joseph Goebbels became Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister in 1933. This position bestowed power over all of Germany’s radio, press, cinema, and theater.

In 1925 Goebbels met the leader of the Nazi Party, Adolf Hitler. In 1926, he was made Gauleiter, or party leader, for the region of Berlin, In 1927 he founded and became editor of the official Nazi periodical Der Angriff (The Attack).

Goebbels was elected to the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1928. By exploiting mob emotions and by employing all modern methods of propaganda Goebbels helped Hitler into power.

In the book, “Public Opinion and Propaganda; A Book of Readings edited for The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues”, Leonard W. Doob wrote a chapter titled “Goebbels’ Principles of Propaganda”.

Here are some of those principles:

1. Propagandist must have access to intelligence concerning events and public opinion.

2. Propaganda must be planned and executed by only one authority.

a. It must issue all the propaganda directives.

b. It must explain propaganda directives to important officials and maintain their morale.

c. It must oversee other agencies’ activities which have propaganda consequences.

3. The propaganda consequences of an action must be considered in planning that action.

4. Propaganda must affect the enemy’s policy and action.

a. By suppressing propagandistically desirable material which can provide the enemy with useful intelligence.

b. By openly disseminating propaganda whose content or tone causes the enemy to draw the desired conclusions.

c. By goading the enemy into revealing vital information about himself.

d. By making no reference to a desired enemy activity when any reference would discredit that activity.

5. Declassified, operational information must be available to implement a propaganda campaign.

6. To be perceived, propaganda must evoke the interest of an audience and must be transmitted through an attention-getting communications medium.

As I have related to you before, I was a Radio News Director during college from 1978-1980, with a staff of 20 student reporters, who each received credit for producing and delivering a 5-minute newscast, once a week, on our College Radio Station.

I can remember sitting in the lecture hall of the (then) Memphis State University Journalism Building, listening to Dr. Van Williams, whom we all swore did the first newscast of KDKA, America’s first radio station, in 1920.  The class was “Introduction to Journalism” and Dr. Williams was telling us that the ”key to being a good journalist was objectivity”.

Now, in 2020, the Main Stream Media has made the term “Journalistic Integrity” an oxymoron.

Throughout yesterday on both Main Stream and Social Media, all of the Liberal Political Pundits, both ‘Professional” and self-proclaimed, were spreading the now-proven-to-be-false story published by the Atlantic, in a demonstration of gullibility resembling the mass panic induced by Orson Welles’ national radio broadcast of a reading of H.G. Welles’ “War of the Worlds’ on October 2, 1938, which convinced Americans at the time that Martians had indeed landed on Earth and were starting an invasion.

It soon became very apparent to every American who was paying attention that The Atlantic had fabricated another fake news story designed to someho damage a sitting President whose chances of being reelected to office are growing stronger every day.

Average Americans are daily winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority and the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media by the sharing of information through Social Media.

Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

In this age of instantaneous communication via Social Media, Americans have become their own on-the-scene-reporters, often foiling the planned use of propaganda by outlets such as WaPo, simply by being there and sharing the event with their friends on Facebook or Instagram.

That contrary and factual information is then disseminated through the use of that same “New Media” to reach Americans from coast-to-cast, nullifying slanted stories delivered through the Traditional Media, sometimes even before they are released.

In this wonderful Technological Age that we are living in, average Americans have the ability to share information at the “speed of reality” itself.

A fact which is the cause of great consternation and falling ratings to those news outlets who are attempting to be the Vanguard who ushers in a Biden/Harris victory this November, clearing the way for the completed change of America from a Constitutional Republic to a Democratic Socialist (MARXIST) nation.

Marshall McLuhan once wrote that

The Medium is the message.

He was saying that mass communication influences the way that we see things and that those bringing it have to be perceived as being trustworthy in order to be believed by those receiving their “message”.

Unfortunately for The Atlantic and the rest of the Main Stream Media, their history of pandering to Liberal Causes and the Democratic Party is well-documented and has led to their being dismissed by average Americans as, as Trump remarked shortly after taking office, being known as purveyors of “fake news”.

Equally unfortunate for the Liberal Media, is that fact that Americans have become our own news reporters.

And therefore, propaganda does not work as well as it used to.

Unlike those fooled on that October night in 1930, Americans no longer implicitly trust the Main Stream Media.

Especially when they “jump the shark” as The Atlantic did yesterday.

November 8th, 2016 proved that, as The Who once sang

We won’t be fooled again.

…not as long as Americans stay informed.

Trump Closes Out 2020 RNC With a Powerful Acceptance Speech…Why He Will Win

BB18rya6

President Donald J. Trump closed out the Republican National Convention last night with style and panache only he could. Here are some excerpts of his acceptance speech…

“We will lead America into new frontiers of discovery and reach new heights of achievement,” he says, as well as a “new spirit of unity.”

“In recent months, our nation, and the entire planet, has been struck by a new and powerful invisible enemy. Like those brave Americans before us, we are meeting this challenge,” he says. “We are delivering lifesaving therapies, and will produce a vaccine before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner. We will defeat the virus, end the pandemic, and emerge stronger than ever before.”

“At no time before have voters faced a clearer choice between two parties, two visions, two philosophies, or two agendas,” he says.

“This election will decide whether we save the American Dream, or whether we allow a socialist agenda to demolish our cherished destiny.”

“It will decide whether we rapidly create millions of high paying jobs, or whether we crush our industries and send millions of these jobs overseas, as has foolishly been done for many decades.”

“Your vote will decide whether we protect law abiding Americans, or whether we give free reign to violent anarchists and agitators, and criminals who threaten our citizens,” he says.”

“For 47 years, Joe Biden took the donations of blue collar workers, gave them hugs and even kisses,” he says, as laughs break out. “And told them he felt their pain – and then he flew back to Washington and voted to ship their jobs to China and many other distant lands.”

“Joe Biden spent his entire career outsourcing their dreams and the dreams of American Workers, offshoring their jobs, opening their borders, and sending their sons and daughters to fight in endless foreign wars, wars that never ended.”

“I did what our political establishment never expected and could never forgive, breaking the cardinal rule of Washington politics — I kept my promise.”

“They are angry at me because instead of putting them first, I put America first,” 

“Our country wasn’t built by cancel culture, speech codes, and soul-crushing conformity. We are not a nation of timid spirits. We are a nation of fierce, proud, and independent American Patriots,”

“On November 3rd, we will make America safer, we will make America stronger, we will make America prouder, and we will make America greater than ever before,”

In my opinion, Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate has no chance of winning the Presidency.

Why?

The Democrat Elite, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, care more for their failed political ideology than they do the average Americans between the coasts, whom Hillary Clinton called “Deplorables”.

Just as Trump did, with his refusal early in his first Presidential Campaign to “act more presidential”, continues to take his message directly to the American People.

As opposed to “Groping Joe”, who is still hiding in his basement, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour, then his “MAGA Rallies”, and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Democrat Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.

President Trump has America’s Economy coming back after the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic

Also…

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as the Democrats did in their National Covention and, quite frankly, do every day.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

When he speaks, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, makes average Americans feel good about themselves and their role in determining the future of our country.

They hear words of hope and encouragement from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

And, that, fellow Americans, is why President Trump will be reelected.

Until He Comes,

KJ
