NPR Denies the Implementation of Critical Race Theory in American Schools While Claiming That Republicans are Making It Up To Protect Trump

See the source image

Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. – Christopher Rufo, “Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It”, imprimus.hillsdale.edu

FoxNews.com reports that

National Public Radio (NPR) took a swing at Republicans who are denouncing and trying to stop the implementation of critical race theory in U.S. schools, asserting that their opposition is a political motive for next year’s midterm elections.

The report’s framing sparked outrage on social media, as figures like Republican commentator Matt Whitlock criticized NPR’s one-sided take.

“Interesting framing — no examples of CRT being implemented in a number of places, and no commentary about 1619 being torn apart by historians,” he tweeted. “It suggests R’s just picked this fight out of the sky because Trump, which is not true for anyone following.”

Psychology professor Geoffrey Miller responded, calling critical race theory a “toxic cult that promotes racial hatred & race war.”

“@NPR used to be against racial hatred & race wars,” he added. “What changed?”

Gold Institute for International Strategy senior fellow Matthew Brodsky asserted that critical race theory is not a truly academic approach as described by NPR.

“It’s not ‘an academic approach.’ It’s a revisionist history viewed through a selective prism that colors everything. When you wear red lenses in your sunglasses, everything looks red. When you view everything through critical race lenses, everyone is a racist,” he tweeted.

Christopher Rufo, senior fellow of the Manhattan Institute and notable critic of critical race theory, called NPR “National Propaganda Radio.”

Rufo has been a leading activist in helping state and local governments in banning CRT curriculum from being taught in schools and highlighting CRT employee training in businesses and corporations. Earlier this year, Rufo formed a network of private attorneys and conservative organizations to combat critical race theory.

NPR promoted the importance of critical race theory while blaming former President Donald Trump for causing partisanship on the issue after his signing of an executive order banning certain racial sensitivity training for federal contractors.

“Since then, the issue has taken hold as a rallying cry among some Republican lawmakers who argue the approach unfairly forces students to consider race and racism,” the report reads.

Christopher Rufo, in the article from which I quoted at the beginning of today’s post, explains that

There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality. But the distinction is vast and important. Indeed, equality—the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law with the 14th and 15th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965—is explicitly rejected by critical race theorists. To them, equality represents “mere nondiscrimination” and provides “camouflage” for white supremacy, patriarchy, and oppression.

In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism.

The Democrats are attempting to create a generation of Marxist-loving, anti-American, Useful Idiot “New Bolsheviks” through the use of Racial Division and Revisionist History.

No country is perfect because countries are governed by human beings, which are fallen creatures.

However, the United States of America remains the country that everyone wants to come to, legally or otherwise.

Why? 

Because for almost 250 years, this “Shining City Upon a Hill” has had a reputation as a land in which everyone could make their dreams a reality…if they were willing to work to achieve it.

Our economic system of capitalism has been the cause of millions of Americans achieving their dreams and providing for their families.

America is a country chiseled out of the wilderness by rugged individualists who wanted not only the freedom to prosper…but the freedom to worship as they pleased also.

America is a “Sweet Land of Liberty”.

And, Liberty is Freedom with responsibility.

The responsibility to provide for yourself and your family…and to protect our precious liberty if our country goes to war.

The Far Left Democrats could care less about the sacrifices made and the lives lost to secure the Sovereign Nation which is today’s America.

Why?

Because they themselves are a bunch of “useful idiots” who want desperately to “share the wealth” and insult patriotism by calling it “nationalism” and “bigoted White Supremacy” in order to “radically change” our proven economic system of capitalism into “Democratic Socialism”, a form of Marxism, a political theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried. 

For several generations, Democrats have told the impoverished that “Uncle Sugar” will take care of their every need as long as they keep voting them into public office.

However, these same impoverished Americans found out during the Presidency of Donald J. Trump the rewards of a good job and hard work.

Boys and girls, the reason that the Biden Administration and the rest of the Far Left Democrats do not want Americans to be proud of America and our actual shared history that it reminds Americans of every good and just quality that this nation was founded upon and whichhas kept us strong for almost 250 years.

It fills us with pride and gratitude that we live in the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

Everything that the Far Left Democrats despise.

The Leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, who brought Marxism to Russia, wrote

“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

However, Lady Margaret Thatcher, a close friend of President Ronald Reagan, laid that falsehood to rest with the following quote…

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

And, you know what?

I would much rather live in “the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” than under a failed political system where you can not even buy a decent roll of toilet paper.

Kinzinger Compares Republican Party to the Titanic for Upcoming Vote to Take Leadership Position Away From Vichy Republican Liz Cheney

 

TheHill.com reports that

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) on Sunday compared the Republican Party to the Titanic amid an internal battle over Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and the push to oust her from her leadership position.

When asked about the intraparty conflict by host John Dickerson on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Kinzinger said the GOP is “in the middle of this slow sink.”

“Right now, it’s basically the Titanic. We’re like, you know, in the middle of this slow sink. We have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine. And meanwhile, as I’ve said, you know, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat,” Kinzger said.

“And I think there’s a few of us that are just saying, ‘Guys, this is not good,’ not just for the future of the party, but this is not good for the future of this country,” he added.

Kinzinger also zeroed in on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) comments regarding former President Trump’s role in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, adding that Cheney has been consistent.

“Liz Cheney is saying exactly what Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection. She’s just consistently been saying it. And a few weeks later, Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people,” Kinzinger said.

He added that the Republican Party needs to have “an internal look and a full accounting as to what led to Jan. 6.”

Kinzinger, one of the 10 GOP House members to vote to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting an insurrection, voiced his support last week for Cheney, who also voted to impeach Trump in January.

The ignorance of the Never-Trumper Vichy Republicans continues to both amaze me and make me sick to my stomach.

What sort of bubble-living arrogance does one have to possess to believe that your Political Party would be better off to remain servants to the Opposition Party than to take back the Presidency and both Houses of Congress by giving the American People the common sense leadership that they want out of Washington?

According to a Suffolk University-USA Today Poll taken in February, Republicans would leave the GOP to follow former President Donald Trump to a third party, by a near 2-to-1 margin.

The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.

When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.

You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.

Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?

They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.

They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.

He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.

He could not be bought.

And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never-Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.

He refused to take their money and play their games.

He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.

As shown by the above polls and others which have had similar results, the American People have had enough of the tone-deaf spineless Vichy Republicans.

They want someone who will listen to and stand up for them.

Hence, the results of all of the polls on this subject.

That is why Sen. Mitch McConnell was so upset after Trump was acquitted in the last Shampeachment.

The Republican Elite know that these polls are true.

And, they are afraid of the “Deplorables” (me and you).

Until He Comes,

Biden Raises Refugee Cap to 62,500 From Trump’s 15,000 After Blowback From Far Left Democrats

FoxNews.com reports that

President Biden increased the limit of refugee admissions to 62,500 for this fiscal year on Monday following intense pressure from fellow Democrats.

Biden increased the refugee cap just weeks after he announced his intent to maintain a 15,000-refugee cap first imposed by former President Donald Trump. The initial limit drew outrage from prominent Democrats, who accused Biden of moving too slowly to reverse Trump-era refugee entry policies.

“This erases the historically low number set by the previous administration of 15,000, which did not reflect America’s values as a nation that welcomes and supports refugees,” Biden said in a statement. “The new admissions cap will also reinforce efforts that are already underway to expand the United States’ capacity to admit refugees, so that we can reach the goal of 125,000 refugee admissions that I intend to set for the coming fiscal year.”

The Biden administration first proposed raising the refugee cap to 62,500 in February. However, the president appeared to reverse course in April, signing an emergency declaration to keep the Trump-era limit of 15,000 in place.

Prominent Democrats seized on the delay. Sen. Dick Durbin described the Biden administration’s initial target as “unacceptable” and said there was “no reason to limit the number to 15,000.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the decision was “flat out wrong” and accused Biden of “upholding the xenophobic and racist policies of the Trump admin.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in April the Biden administration had inherited a “decimated refugee admissions program.” She added that Biden would announce a “final, increased refugee cap” by mid-May.

In a lengthy statement detailing his revised refugee cap, Biden said the “sad truth is that we will not achieve 62,500 admissions this year.”

“We are working quickly to undo the damage of the last four years. It will take some time, but that work is already underway,” Biden said in a statement. “We have reopened the program to new refugees.”

The revised limit added more entry slots for refugees from specific regions. Under the updated guidelines for this fiscal year, the US will accept a maximum of 22,000 refugees from Africa, 13,000 from Near East and South Asia, 6,000 from East Asia, 5,000 from Latin America, and 4,000 from Europe and Central Asia.

Who will be doing the vetting of these “refugees”?

The same kind of imbecilic bureaucrats who allowed Europe to be trashed by Muslim “Refugees” who looked more like a plain-clothes army?

In November of 2015, the Ultra-Liberal BBC.com reported on the process.

If a refugee is cleared to be considered by the US, the process for approval is lengthy – 18-24 months, said one senior administration official.

Refugees are admitted at about a 50% acceptance rate after being subjected to “the most rigorous screening of any traveller to the US,” an official told reporters in a conference call.

That involves extensive in-person interviews about their experiences with conflict, as well as the collection of both biometric and biographic information that is cross-checked with the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and in some cases, the Department of Defense.

…Ten thousand people have been referred for resettlement in the US, but the US has not processed their applications yet.

After 18-24 months, a refugee may then be sent to his or her new community.

That exercise in futility was, of course, conducted during the Obama Administration.

If you were watching Saturday morning cartoons in 1977, during President Carter’s time in the White House, on ABC, you would have seen a Schoolhouse Rock musical cartoon titled The Great American Melting Pot.  It extolled the unique greatness of  our American Heritage.

For a while now, that heritage has been under attack.

The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.

This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.

And, Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we face today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.

Today, our country is at war on two fronts: We are at war against the Drug Cartels and those who would enter our country illegally to work, and those who are “escaping” a war-ravaged land, or so they claim.

This new batch of “immigrants” are unvetted and unwilling to assimilate into American Culture. Their loyalties remain with the country whose conditions were so horrible that they left.

The reason that Biden and his Administration are doing away with Donald J. Trump’s immigration proposals is that they are full of common sense, utilized in defense of our sovereignty.

Biden’s “Handlers”, like most Modern American Liberals, from Hillary Clinton to Colin Kaepernick, want to “radically change” this Sovereign Nation that God, through our Founding Fathers, bequeathed to us, into a Modern-day Tower of Babel, for their own ungrateful benefit.

The same people who gave us the “Syrian Refugee” problem, including Obama, are involved in the Biden Presidency.

I wouldn’t trust those Liberal idiots to vet children for a part in a Daycare Play, much less determine the character of foreign nationals wanting to be declared “refugees” and enter our Sovereign Nation.

President Trump limited the number of refugees who would be able to come to America out of a genuine concern for the safety of Americans.

The Far Left Democrats running the “Biden-Harris Administration” don’t give a rat’s rear.

They have been putting and will always put AMERICA LAST.

McConnell Moves to Block Proposal for K-12 “Culturally Response Teaching and Learning” Which References the Racially Divisive Revisionist History “1619 Project”

“The Biden Administration is now apparently pushing to get the New York Times’ anti-American 1619 Project taught in every public classroom in America. This is a line in the sand moment for our country and I will stand against it here in our county. ” – Glenn “Kane” Jacobs, Mayor, Knox County, Tennessee (Twitter)

FoxNews.com reports that

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow Republicans are demanding President Biden’s Education Department block a planned history education proposal that invokes the 1619 Project.

McConnell penned a letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona with more than 30 of his GOP colleagues blasting new proposed priorities for American history and civics teaching as “divisive nonsense.”

“Americans do not need or want their tax dollars diverted from promoting the principles that unite our nation toward promoting radical ideologies meant to divide us,” McConnell wrote.

The Education Department published the new proposal on April 19 for federal grant guidelines designed to promote more “culturally responsive teaching and learning” at K-12 schools. As positive examples, the Department of Education cites the “landmark” 1619 Project, the resources of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and “anti-racist practices” modeled by scholar Ibram X. Kendi.

The 1619 Project was a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Magazine enterprise that examined the long-term consequences of slavery in America. It was released in 2019 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the first arrival of enslaved Africans in colonial Virginia in 1619. Certain historians have raised concerns with some of the claims, namely that slavery was a primary reason that colonists fought the American Revolution.

Some conservatives have panned the work as an attempt to rewrite history and balked at the 1619 Project curriculum being taught in schools. To counter the 1619 Project, former President Trump formed a “1776 Commission” that issued a report meant to support what Trump called “patriotic education.”

Shortly after taking office, Biden disbanded that commission that his team said: “sought to erase America’s history of racial injustice” and removed the 1776 report from the White House website.

McConnell’s letter to Cardona stresses broad concerns that schools are diving into culture wars to the detriment of teaching students factual history and civics lessons.

McConnell and his GOP colleagues lamented that Americans aren’t proficient in basic civics, such as naming the three branches of the federal government. Instead, certain schools and, now the federal government, are trying to inject “divisive, radical and historically-dubious” propaganda into the classrooms, the senators wrote.

“Taxpayer-supported programs should emphasize the shared civic virtues that bring us together, not push radical agendas that tear us apart,” they wrote.

The Department of Education’s proposed guidelines are targeted at a small voluntary grant program. Education Week notes the American History and Civics grants receive $5.3 million in federal funding, out of a roughly $74 billion budget for the department.

The Far Left Democratic Party is determined to not only rewrite American History but also to indoctrinate our children and grandchildren to hate America and our Traditional System of Faith, Values, and Patriotism.

Why is it wrong to be a Proud American?

Nationalism, placing the well-being of Americans Citizens first, is a good thing and is what being a President should be all about.

The Far Left-controlled Biden-Harris Administration, the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, look down their noses at us average Americans living here in “Flyover Country” who believe that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

Since the 8 years of the reign of King Barack The First, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and to be a patriot or to believe in “Nationalism” was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

And now, these same clowns want to continue teaching revisionist History to our children and grandchildren while asserting that “educated people” believe that those of us who agree with Former President Trump’s optimism and “Nationalism” and those who disagree with their anti-American beliefs are  “racist” and “uneducated”.

They really need to visit America’s heartland, where all of us average and EDUCATED Americans live.

Believe of not, y’all, there are actually colleges and universities in “Flyover Country”.

In fact, where the exceptionalism of America actually lies is not in the Halls of Power nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” who, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And, we are the same ones who believe that there is no way in H-E-L-L that dementia-riddled doddering fool Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election with out a massive case of Election Fraud.

And that, boys and girls, is why the Far Left Democratic Party and Joe Biden’s Handlers built a fence around OUR Capitol and are governing like a bunch of fascist dictators..

Their ego-driven political ideology does not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality is that the overwhelming majority of Americans are still Patriots who believe in God and Country.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016.

And, stupid moves like attempting to teach our children and grandchildren that America is a “Racist Country” is going to blow up in their weasel-looking faces and cost them the next two national elections in 2022 and 2024.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

Patriotism is still cool…and the Democrats are clueless.

Until He Comes,

The “Great Uniter” Addresses a Selected Group of 200 Congressmen, Calls Unarmed Protesters in the Capitol Building “The Worst Attack On Our Democracy Since The Civil War”…What About 9/11?

Image

Last night President Joe Biden spoke to 200 members of Congress, mostly Democrats, and said…

Tonight, I come to talk about crisis — and opportunity.

About rebuilding our nation — and revitalizing our democracy.

And winning the future for America.

As I stand here tonight — just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration.

100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis.

The worst pandemic in a century.

The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

What about September 11, 2001, “Sleepy Joe”?

Have you forgotten?

Those of us who love America haven’t.

In some ways it does not seem like it has been a little over 19 years since the worst Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on American soil.

In other ways, it seems like an eternity.

That horrible day was so surreal. It seemed to me like I was stuck in a nightmare.

Certainly this couldn’t be happening to us? We’re the greatest nation in the world. Who in their right mind, would dare attack the United States of America? Who would be brazen enough to attack us, using instruments of our own design? Who would actually dare flying planes into the Twin Towers, a living symbol of American Prosperity?

For that matter,. who would fly a plane into the Pentagon? The Seat of Power behind our nation’s awesome Military, the finest collection of Fighting Men and Women on Earth?

It was not a nightmare. It was a reality.

I remember seeing that first plane crash into the World Trade Center.

I remember the look of incredulity and panic on the faces of Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and E.D. Hill, as they watched from the set of Fox and Friends that fateful morning.

I remember the second plane on its approach, and the horrifying realization that this was no accident… that America was under attack. An attack, which turned out to have been planned and executed by Osama bin Laden, and a group of Saudi Arabians, members of the Muslim Terrorist Group, known as al-Qaeda.

I remember the images of Americans jumping out of windows to their certain death, rather than be consumed by the fires, raging around them.

I remember the sickening thud as they hit the pavement.

I remember the images of the brave NYC Policemen and Firemen as they rushed into the World Trade Center…never to return.

I remember watching the First Tower collapse…then, the second one.

I remember a heroic Mayor Rudy Giuliani, out in the middle of the devastation, doing whatever he could to get New Yorkers to safety.

I remember President George W. Bush coming on television, with a look of steely determination, as he announced that we would be avenged.

I remember him standing on that heap of rubble that used to be a part of the World Trade Center, side by side with that fireman, telling the assembled crowd, through his bullhorn, that “the world will hear from us”.

And, it did.

And, here we are, a little over 19 years removed from that nightmarish day, with a President of the United States, who since taking office, has placed America Last, dividing our nation by race and economic circumstances, worse than ever.

During the days after 9/11/2001, political affiliation, race, gender, personal philosophy, did not matter.

WE WERE AMERICANS.

This country came together, in a way in which I had never before seen in my lifetime (which, is a pretty long time).

Now, look at us.

We have Radical Muslims (and Marxists) occupying seats in the House of Representatives and displaying their ignorance and disdain for our country.

Like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who infamously said,

“Some people did something.”

Americans must continue to stand firm and to once again come together and let our “public servants” in the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C know that we stand against those who would embrace our enemies instead of serving our Sovereign Nation, as they were elected to do.

Also, we remember those who left us on that September Morning so long ago, and say a prayer for them and the Four Americans whom we lost on the grounds of a US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya. All these years later, they still deserve no less.

On September 11, 2001, Radical Islamists attacked us on our own soil and murdered over 3,000 Americans, and if given the opportunity, they will not hesitate to do it again.

We must not allow the Far Left ideologues of the modern Democratic Party any more opportunities to bring about “radical change” in America through the appeasement of our enemies which, under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, included pay-offs, acquiescence, and giving them the means of our nation’s destruction, and which threaten to continue under his protege and marionette, Dementia Joe.

America was NEVER meant to be “just another country”.

We must stand united as a nation and continue to reclaim our heritage as “The Shining City Upon a Hill”.

The lives lost on September 11, 2001…and September 11, 2012…demand it.

Shampeachment 2 Begins With a Deceptively-Edited “Horror Show” Which Will Still Lead to an Acquittal

 
Newsmax.com reports that

Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial began Tuesday with harrowing video footage of his supporters’ assault on Congress, but Republican senators made clear with a first key vote late in the afternoon how difficult it will be to win a conviction.

Senators voted 56-44 in favor of the constitutionality of the historic trial, rejecting a bid by Trump’s lawyers to throw it out on grounds that a former president cannot be tried by lawmakers.

The vote, held before the main part of the trial was to get underway Wednesday, saw six Republicans join all 50 Democrats in the evenly divided Senate.

Despite this modest show of bipartisanship, the result highlighted the nearly impossible task of getting the two thirds majority — requiring 17 Republicans to join the Democrats — that would be needed to convict Trump of inciting insurrection.

Earlier, both sides presented their opening cases, with Democrats arguing that Trump broke his oath in a naked bid to retain power after losing the November election to Joe Biden.

Refusing to accept his defeat, they argued, Trump spread lies about vote rigging and repeatedly pressured officials, including then-Vice President Mike Pence, to try and stop the transfer of power.

Finally, on Jan. 6, Trump held a rally not far from the Capitol building, telling enraged Republican supporters near the White House to “fight like hell” to save the democracy. The crowd, chanting “stop the steal,” then attacked Congress, where Pence and lawmakers were in the process of certifying Biden’s Electoral College victory.

“If Congress were to just stand completely aside in the face of such an extraordinary crime against the Republic, it would invite future presidents to use their power without any fear of accountability,” Democratic impeachment manager Joe Neguse said.

Video from the Jan. 6 mayhem played back inside the ornate Senate packed the biggest punch.

Senators — who witnessed the events firsthand when they had to be rushed to safety that day — watched raw footage of Trump’s speech and the crowd’s ensuing assault on the Capitol.

The video montage showed the mob chanting pro-Trump slogans as it smashed through the doors, swarmed over police, and managed for the first time in history to disrupt the congressional vote certifying the election.

“If that’s not an impeachable offense, then there is no such thing,” lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin said.

Fighting tears, Raskin recounted how he and his family — who were visiting to watch the certification — had been trapped, listening to “the sound of pounding on the door like a battering ram, the most haunting sound I have ever heard.”

“This cannot be the future of America,” he implored senators.

Trump laywer David Schoen, however, had a vastly different story to tell. He said the Senate had no jurisdiction to try Trump once he had left office and warned that the impeachment threatened to “tear this country apart.”

It will leave the United States “far more divided and our standing around the world will be badly broken,” he argued.

– Trump sets record –

Trump is the first president ever to face two impeachment trials — he was already acquitted in 2020 of abuse of power — as well as the first in history to be tried after leaving the White House.

His team is basing its case largely on the procedural argument that a former president cannot be tried, calling the Senate trial “absurd.”

They also argue that whatever Trump said during his Jan. 6 rally is protected by the constitutional right to free speech and did not come close to ordering the assault on Congress.

The trial is clearly uncomfortable for many Republican senators, who, like their Democratic colleagues, had to flee to safety during the violence. Reminders of the mayhem are everywhere around them, with thousands of National Guard troops still deployed around the newly fortified, fenced-in Capitol building.

Despite this, a second acquittal is all but certain for Trump.

Huge numbers of Republican voters continue to support the ex-president.

Polls show that a small majority of the country overall believes Trump deserves conviction. An Ipsos/ABC News poll found 56 percent back this, while a Gallup poll found 52 percent support. Among Republicans, however, an overwhelming majority opposes convicting Trump.

Per ABC.Go.com,

This ABC News/Ipsos poll was conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs‘ KnowledgePanel® Feb. 5 to 6, 2021, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 508 adults. Results have a margin of sampling error of 4.8 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 31%-26%-36%, Democrats-Republicans-independents.

As you can see, this was , as are the majority of the nationals polls, a poll with a sample weighted toward a Democrat-favorable response.

Typically, when a poll identifies some of its sample as “Independents”, they are usually Liberal Democrats who purposefully hide their true political ideology.

If I was one of them, I would be embarrassed, too.

But, I digress.

While still at home from work, recovering from COVID-19, I followed the Twitter responses to Shampeachment 2: TDS Boogaloo on my phone.

The same Democrat Operatives, like the idiotic Jennifer Rubin, Proclaimed that the deceptively-edited Democrat Video of the “Capitol Hill Riot” on January 6th was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

They also made fun of David Shoen for holding the top of his head while taking a sip of water.

Evidently, they were too ignorant to realize that Shoen is Jewish and is used to having to hold his yarmulke on his head while tilting back to drink.

Jedidiah Bila and Bret Baier of cellar-dwelling Fox News joined in with the other Liberals concerning how wonderful the Democrats opening presentation was, neglecting to mention that President Trump called for a “peaceful protest” during his speech and the fact that evidence has been coming in that the “riot” not only was pre-planned, but one of the rioters was an FBI Veteran and possible Deep State Operative.

As the Newsmax article points out, all Shampeachment 2 is, is a waste of time and our money.

The Democrats do not have the votes in this unconstitutional attempt to keep President Trump from running in 2024.

Trump will be acquitted for a second time, even with Democrat Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy acting as “judge” and juror.

And, the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump on November 3, 2020, will laugh their butts off at “The Smartest People in the Room” as their “Brilliant” Plan to shame Donald J. Trump and those of us who voted for him blows up in their smug elite faces.

NBC News Poll Shows That the Overwhelming Majority of Republican Voters are Still Standing By Him

See the source image

NBCNews.com (believe it or not) reported yesterday that

Donald Trump is the only president in history to be impeached twice — this time for his role in encouraging a deadly assault on the Capitol by his supporters — but he is poised to leave office with a job approval rating that is fairly typical of his entire time in office.

A new NBC News poll found that 43 percent of voters nationwide gave Trump a positive job approval rating, just barely down from 45 percent who said the same before the November election and the 44 percent who approved of his performance shortly after he took office in 2017.

The same poll found that 35 percent of voters — including 74 percent of Republicans but just 30 percent of independents and 3 percent of Democrats — believe President-elect Joe Biden did not win the election legitimately.

Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately.

While a record 10 House Republicans broke ranks to vote for Trump’s impeachment last week, his approval rating among Republicans shows few signs that GOP voters are widely disillusioned with him.

Almost 9 in 10 Republicans — 87 percent — give Trump a thumbs-up, compared with 89 percent who said the same before the November election.

And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP in general over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events.

Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. For those who say they prioritize the party over the president, his approval still stands at 81 percent — virtually unchanged from October. (The findings contrast with some other recent national polls showing Trump’s job rating lower. Unlike other surveys that sampled all U.S. adults, NBC News’ poll surveyed registered voters.)

In the NBC News survey, nearly a third of GOP voters surveyed — 28 percent — said Trump’s words and actions related to the violence at the Capitol reinforced their vote for Trump.

Just 5 percent said they now regretted their support for him, and two-thirds — 66 percent — said their feelings had not changed.

While 52 percent of voters overall say Trump is solely or mainly responsible for the protests that led to rioters’ overtaking the Capitol, including 91 percent of Democrats and 44 percent of independents, just 11 percent of Republicans agree. (About half of Republicans, however, place responsibility on “social media companies” and “Antifa.”)

But…but…I thought “President-elect” Joe Biden was supposed to be universally loved?

He has been saying (when the medicine is working) that he is going to “bring us all together” and “unify” us (i.e., “deprogram” us).

I mean, he received more votes that Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

How can this be?

Well,,,remember the old adage “Cheaters never prosper”?

It’s true.

The overwhelming majority of average Americans living here in the Heartland not only believe that Sleepy Joe and his Democrat Handlers cheated to win the 2020 Presidential Election, they believe that he is suffering from frail health and dementia and will not finish out the first year of his term as President.

All of this garbage which we have witnessed over the time of the Trump Presidency has reminded me of a Tom Clancy novel…except that it has been even wor4se and far more intricate, international, and downright convoluted in size and scope.

And, what is maddening, besides the fact that 74 million of us had our votes disenfranchised is the fact that the Democrats believe that we should all kiss Sleepy Joe’s, Heels Up Harris’ and their fellow Capitol Hill Democrats’ backsides for taking our Constitutional Right to pick our own President away from us.

And, that was just the beginning.

Look at all of the new fences and cameras which have been put up in Washington, DC.

They have turned our nation’s capitol into the new Soviet Politboro.

If you believe that old Uncle Joe is a Moderate, you are sadly mistaken.

He is going to be whatever his handlers tell him to be.

Unless something happens before the Inauguration to stop it, and I have my doubts that it will, we are about to experience the return of the 8-year nightmare known as the Obama Administration…on steroids.

Oh…and NBC…if you are wondering why those numbers are not what you expected…it is because Americans refuse to buy all the BS you guys have been shoveling.

Nikki Haley at RNC 2020: “Biden is a Godsend to Everyone Who Wants America to Apologize”…Why is It Wrong to Be a Proud American?

nikki-haley-rnc

FoxNews.com reports that

Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley touted President Trump’s foreign policy agenda during her speech at the Republican National Convention, while lambasting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his “record of weakness and failure.”

Haley, who left her post as ambassador to the U.N. in 2018, praised Trump administration’s move to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, its decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal negotiated under former President Barack Obama and the sanctions it levelled on North Korea.

“This president has a record of strength and success,” Haley said during her address at the Mellon Auditorium in Washington D.C. “The former Vice President has a record of weakness and failure. Joe Biden is good for Iran and ISIS, great for Communist China, and he’s a godsend to everyone who wants America to apologize, abstain and abandon our values.

Haley also focused on attacking Biden over the economic record when he served as vice president – lauding the economic gains that South Carolina made when she was the state’s governor “in spite of Joe Biden and his old boss.”

“We cut taxes. They raised them. We slashed red tape. They piled on more mandates,” she said. “And when we brought in good-paying jobs, Biden and Obama sued us. I fought back and they gave up.”

Echoing a common theme of Trump, Haley also attempted to tie Biden in with the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

“Their vision for America is socialism and we know that socialism has failed everywhere,” she said. “Joe Biden and the socialist left would be a disaster for our economy. But President Trump is leading a new era of opportunity.”

As I predicted, the Republican Party kicked off their National Convention yesterday breathing the fresh air of optimism …instead of the farmyard smell of the doom and gloom preached last week by the Far Left Democratic Party.

And, the thing is, average Americans living between the coasts smell what the Democratic Party were and are shoveling.

The President and the Republican Speakers at the Convention are not preaching fear like the Democrats were.

They are spreading optimism and pride in American Exceptionalism.

Why is it wrong to be a Proud American?

Nationalism, placing the well-being of Americans Citizens first, is a good thing and is what being a President should be all about.

The participants in the Democratic National Convention and the Main Stream Media Democratic Party Propaganda Arm, have been accusing President Trump of being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

During the 8 years of the reign of King Barack The First, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and to be a patriot or to believe in “Nationalism” was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

And now, these same clowns are asserting that “educated people are disagreeing with Trump’s optimism and “Nationalism” and those, who support the president are “uneducated”.

They really need to visit America’s heartland, where all of us average and EDUCATED Americans live.

Believe of not, y’all, there are actually colleges and universities in “Flyover Country”.

In fact, where the exceptionalism of America actually lies is not in the Halls of Power nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” who, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And, are still #WALKINGAWAY less than 2 months before the 2020 Presidential Election.

And that, boys and girls, is why the Far Left Democratic Party is still showing the world their posteriors while continuing to throw the longest mass temper tantrum in recorded history.

Their ego-driven political ideology does not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016 and is about to cost them the White House again in 2020.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

So, to summarize, by labeling Patriotism as “Nationalism” and by ridiculing those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values, the Democratic Party cost themselves the Presidency…going from the “In Crowd” to the Outhouse…where they remain to this very day.

And, this same attitude is going to cost them in the Presidential Election on November 8, 2020.

If I was a Far Left Democrat with any sort of self-awareness, I would be throwing a temper tantrum, too…over my own ungrateful arrogant ignorance that caused the defeat of my Presidential Candidate and is causing the disintegration of my political party, as evidenced by the lousy Presidential Candidate which their party is running.

Patriotism is cool…again!

Biden Attempts to Walk Back “You Ain’t Black” Comment But His History Tells the Real Story

Charlemagne-and-Biden

FoxNews.com reports that

Joe Biden expressed regret Friday during a call with black business leaders for suggesting in an earlier interview that African-Americans unsure about whether to support him or President Trump “ain’t black.”

“I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” Biden said in an afternoon phone call with the U.S. Black Chambers, addressing the controversy within seconds of the session starting.

The public attempt to walk back the remarks underscored how explosive the issue became for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign in a matter of hours, at a time when he’s working to unite the party and avoid the kind of internal divisions that helped Trump win in 2016.

Biden said he understands the comments sounded like he was taking the black vote “for granted” but insisted that wasn’t the case.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” Biden said. “… No one should have to vote for any party, based on their race or religion or background.”

Biden made the comments to host Charlamagne tha God of “The Breakfast Club” radio show. The remarks instantly ignited a backlash from critics, with the Trump campaign calling them “racist and dehumanizing.”

“He truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how Black people should behave,” Trump senior adviser Katrina Pierson said in a statement.

The dustup occurred 17 minutes into the former vice president’s interview, when a Biden aide tried to end the interview, prompting the host to charge, “You can’t do that to black media.”

Biden stressed that his wife had an upcoming engagement, and suggested he would have to go whether dealing with “white media” or “black media.”

“Uh, oh … I’m in trouble,” he joked as he referred to making his wife late. Biden and his wife Jill Biden share the same studio in the basement of their home in Wilmington, Del.

After Charlamagne tha God, who is black, then asked Biden to come back on the program again and the former vice president agreed, the host added, “It’s a long way to November. We’ve got more questions.”

Biden responded: “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said.

It’s unclear whether Biden meant to refer only to the host or to the black community as a whole.

Charlamagne tha God responded that “it has nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact that I want something for my community.”

But the “You ain’t black” moment reverberated on social media, with the host retweeting a variety of listeners complaining about it. Biden “should never say to a black man ‘You aint black’ under ANY circumstances,” one wrote.

Biden campaign adviser Symone Sanders defended the comments, stressing Biden’s record with the black community and saying: “The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.”

Pierson, in a Trump campaign conference call with reporters, fired back that Biden’s comment “wasn’t in jest. He was serious.”

And Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina — the only black GOP senator and a supporter of the president — said “I won’t even dignify that with a response” when asked about Sanders’ comment that Biden was joking.

Why is everybody so surprised that poor old demented Joe Biden said something racist?

Back in February of 2007, Delaware Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.

Liberals’ arrogance often lead them to reveal their own intolerance.

Sleepy Joe became chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and as Delaware Senator supported a crime bill in 1994, saying at the time that his aim was to control violent crime.

Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of the 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…

…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.

Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.

The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)

The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”

Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.

Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.

Uh huh.

Liberal Democrats have taken the votes of Black Americans for granted for a long time ow.

The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.

They not only expect it, they rely on it.

However, the problem is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.

Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.

The problem that the “unintended consequences” of the 1994 Crime Bill and Biden’s racist comment to Charlemagne yesterday poses for the Democrats is the fact that it shows their hypocrisy.

Instead of fighting against the bill and the “sentencing disparity” which it allowed to continue unabated, Joe performed his imitation of a matador and waved it on through, allowing President Bill “Bubba” Clinton to sign it into law.

And now, unfortunately for Sleepy Joe, the progress of his obvious dementia is causing him to say things which he might be thinking out loud with no filter in between his thought process and his voice box.

I thought Sleepy Joe was supposed to be a “friend of the common man”.

Sheesh.

With “friends” like “Sleepy Joe” Biden, Black Americans don’t need any enemies.

There is Reality…and Then There is the Latest Fox News Poll Claiming Biden is More Trustworthy Than Trump

05-pres-biden-la-600

Swing down Chariot stop and let me ride.

I have just seen everything.

A hit piece featuring a poll showing corrupt, demented Sleepy Joe Biden being more trusted and more popular than President Donald J. Trump featuring what is obviously a Democrat-heavy survey sample of 1,207 imbeciles… is being highlighted on FoxNews.com!!!

Most voters are concerned about the pandemic and the economy, so when they favor Joe Biden on coronavirus and Donald Trump has a narrow edge on pocketbook issues — it makes for a tight race for the White House.

The latest Fox News Poll finds voters trust Biden to do a better job than Trump on health care by 17 points, coronavirus by 9, and relations with China by 6.  Trump is trusted more on the economy by a slim 3-point margin.

“That might be the election in a nutshell,” says Democrat Chris Anderson, who conducts the poll with Republican Daron Shaw.  “Trump has a slight advantage in a narrow debate about economic recovery, but a debate about coronavirus or public health more broadly benefits Biden.”

Eighty-eight percent are concerned about coronavirus spreading and 78 percent feel the economy is in bad shape.

There has been a seismic shift in views on the economy since the pandemic.  In January, voters rated economic conditions positively by an 11-point margin: 55 percent excellent/good vs. 44 percent only fair/poor.  Today, views are negative by 58 points:  20 percent excellent/good vs. 78 percent only fair/poor.

Positive ratings dropped 49 points among Republicans (from 85 to 36 percent) since January and 22 points among Democrats (from 31 to 9 percent).

As 44 percent report someone in their household has lost work because of coronavirus, a 54 percent majority thinks the country is in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  Sixty-five percent felt that way in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.

More Democrats (67 percent) than Republicans (40 percent) feel it is the worst crisis since the Depression.

Republicans are more optimistic about a speedy recovery, as 50 percent expect the economy to improve in the next six months.  Just 19 percent of Democrats say the same.

Overall, 32 percent think the economy will improve within 6 months, 23 percent say 7-12 months, 24 percent say 1-2 years, and 14 percent think longer than that.

In the 2020 ballot test, Biden leads Trump by 48-40 percent.  Biden’s 8-point advantage is outside the poll’s margin of error.  However, given that 11 percent are undecided or plan to vote for someone else, neither candidate hits 50 percent support.  The race could go either way.

Among voters who are extremely motivated about voting this fall, Biden has a 12-point advantage (53-41 percent).  More Biden supporters (69 percent) than Trump supporters (63 percent) feel extremely motivated to vote.

Trump leads by 7 points among men and by 30 among rural whites.  He won both groups by larger margins in 2016 (11 and 37 points respectively).

Biden leads by 20 points among women and 64 points among blacks.  Compared to Hillary Clinton in 2016, he bests her performance among women (Clinton was +13) but lags among blacks (Clinton +81).

The 27-point gender gap is even larger than the record 24-point gap in 2016.

Biden makes inroads with two key groups: independents prefer him by 13 points and voters ages 65+ by 17 points.  In 2016, Trump won independents by 4 and seniors by 7.

Even small differences in party loyalty and defections matter in tight races.  Biden receives the support of 88 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of Republicans.  For Trump, 84 percent of Republicans back him and 3 percent of Democrats.

Sixty-nine percent are following news about the allegation of sexual assault against Biden very or somewhat closely.  The accusation comes from Tara Reade, a former staffer in Biden’s senate office in the early 1990s.

Fifty-two percent of voters say the allegation will be a factor in deciding their vote for president, including 24 percent who say it will be a major factor.  It will not be a factor for 44 percent.

…Conducted May 17-20, 2020 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,207 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones.  The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points for all registered voters.

Did they call you?

They sure didn’t call me.

Ever since the doom and gloom polls started appearing after Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican Nomination in the 2016 Presidential Election, I have watched as poll after poll, no matter how well Trump is actually doing with American Citizens, painted a picture of a struggling novice who could not compete with “real” politicians.

Marshall McLuhan wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch and RINO Paul Ryan on their Board of Directors, Fox News has been overcompensating to the Left for quite a while now “in order to keep its programming fair and balanced”.

The daily diatribes from Juan Williams, Donna Brazile, and the little mousey brown-haired Liberal Female Commenter, whose name doesn’t really matter, have made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Fox News needs to recognize who made them into the News Juggernaut that they are.

It most certainly was not American Liberals.

It was average Americans.

The same average Americans who are called “Deplorables”, who voted for Trump the first time and who are going to vote for him again, no matter what skewed polling which has nothing whatsoever to do with reality shows in a graphic on a TV screen.

If polls decided a Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Like a politician’s press secretary, pollsters can word polling questions and skew the sample of voters which they take to achieve whatever outcome they want their poll to have.

You want to see a true picture of how American Voters feel about President Trump?

Leave the Northeastern Beltway and the Left Coast and travel to the Heartland of America and speak to the average Americans living there.

Even with the economic hardships and the Democratic Governors’ fascist overstepping brought on by the Chinese Coronavirus, average Americans will still be there supporting the man who will reopen American and bring our country back…again.

In reality, the average Americans whom I am referring to, the ones who made Fox News the overwhelming leader among the Cable News Channels and who elected Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America, couldn’t warm up to Sleepy Joe if they were cremated together.

Fox News, you should be ashamed of yourself for putting out a piece of garbage like this poll.

I thought you were better than that.

Until He Comes,
