Aftermath of 2020 Election When Trump Is Reelected

See the source image

Message to the Democrat Party and their lackeys in the Main Stream Media;

“Be Careful What You Ask For, You Might Just Get It”!

Since citizen Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy in June of 2015, The Democrats and their co-conspirators in the left-wing media have created a campaign to demonize President Trump in order to “expunge” him from the Presidency.  This is not a direct political attack on Trump’s policies, it has been an all out character assassination of his character, his wife, and his family, along with anyone who dared to vote for him or don a “MAGA” hat! 

Their goal is to create an image of the President as morally unfit for office, incompetent to lead, a deep-seated racists, hater of women and women’s causes, a homophobe, a financial predator who “stole” millions from everyone he did business with, and any image that is considered vile in the eyes of most people.   The bad news is that these conspirators have convinced about 25% on the hard progressive-left that all of these images are true and have confused another 10-15% that some of these allegations may be true.  The 92+% negative coverage by the left-wing news has hammered these images home!  These are age old tactics by the left and they have worked before, that is before Trump!

But, with the lackluster field of 2020 Democrat candidates for president; and the overreach of Pelosi and Schumer to push for impeachment and constant investigations into everything Trump; their is a high chance that in 2020 Trump will keep the Presidency; win back the House, and pick up seats in the Senate.  

THE LEFT WILL OPENLY REVOLT!

You can see evidence of this already.  Reasonable friends you have had for years suddenly dispute hard economic facts that are positive; they believe that whatever CNN, MSNBC or the nightly news or their late night comedy parrots spew is factual; and they have no interest in seeking alternative sources of knowledge.  These friends see the efforts to use foreign surveillance tools and overreaching congressional investigations as reasonable to rid this nation of the reprobate who occupies the White House!  So what is left is Trump remains in the White House and takes back the House?  Open Revolt!  

It will start with protests then be taken over by left-wing activists such as Antifa.  Radical US socialist and communist groups will be paid to fuel the fire until someone gets killed!  We saw this in the 60’s and we are in for an even more violent insurrection.  Unfortunately, the 25+% of Americans who have been duped and riled up by the radical left democrats and their media will mass to support the insurrection.  

See the source image

The difference is that this insurrection has at its core the survival of Progressive-Left dominance in the US that has been reduced dramatically by President Trump.  This is not only a US phenomena but a Western Civilization coup against Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law.  The hard progressive-left has fought for over a century to replace democratic institutions with leftist socialist governments.  They left knows that if Trump gets back into the White House with majorities in the Senate and House, he may just drive the final nail in the coffin known as the progressive-left movement!  

They know that Trump has:

  • Revamped the US economy based on capitalism using lower taxation and massively reduced regulation.
  • Strengthened our military and is standing down our left supported enemies who used them to weaken the US internationally.
  • Done everything legally possible to enforce border security and stop the flow of illegal immigration into the US. 
  • Revamped our trade policies to stand-up the US as an economic leader with “Buy American and Hire American” policies.
  • Weakened international institutions such as the UN and the WTO that were created and propped up to counter-balance the US superpower status.
  • Made the US the largest producer of energy in the world, eliminating threats of an energy crisis by oil producing nations and organizations bent on controlling the West by controlling energy.
  • Forced key allies, and mutual treaty organizations such as NATO, to stand strong and contribute to their mutual defense.  

The Left’s Biggest Fear:

With the White House and Congress behind him, he will take on public education and kill the indoctrination arm of the progressive-left by institutionalizing “SCHOOL CHOICE”.  He will also take on colleges and universities who worked with the progressive-left to financially enslave all who attend these institutions and to instill radical left ideology in their minds!  This is the most feared policy by the left that Trump will pursue and one that will have the most lasting impact on the politics of this nation.

Only an educated electorate can sustain a free nation founded on  a Constitutional Republic form of government!  

Economically depressed minorities can only be lifted up through equal educational opportunities provided through School Choice.

Returning America to a Melting Pot can only be accomplished by promoting educational opportunities that reinforce our history, civics, culture and moral foundations.

Ignorance breeds economic, cultural, political and moral slavery.

Trump’s threat to the progressive-left, their complicit media, and other international forces aligned against the US, is real.  The left has created a base of mindless, hate filled zealots who will not stop in seeking the utter destruction of President Trump and his policies, AND HIS SUPPORTERS.  Their battle against Trump and his supporters are akin to a “religious” holy war and it will get physical.  Be aware, and be careful following Trump’s reelection and the violence that insures.

The Left Has Trump Right Where He Wants Himself for 2020!

You are witnessing a crescendo of Media, DOJ, FBI, Swamp, and RINO attacks against President Trump.  Pelosi and Reed are circling their collective toilet bowl in joining the fray.  The goal, to kill any chances of Trump being a two term President.  Their goal, to make sure no one from the private sector ever try to run against the Progressive-Left swamp agenda.  Their goal, to stop President Trump’s America First agenda and reset the Progressive-Left/Obama Globalist/Socialist dominance.  To put America in its “rightful place” as subservient to our enemies.

In order to view this from Trump’s perspective, go back to the 2016 campaign and ask yourself who supported candidate Trump and who opposed candidate Trump?  Trump’s support came from you, middle-class Americans who were tired of being told you are not doing enough for the world while you witnessed Republicans and Democrats pairing with the global Progressive-Left media,  global businesses and governments to rob you and your children of your American Heritage.  You saw those same Anti-American traitors do everything in their power to negate a phrase from our Declaration of Independence that we all hold dear:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  

So where is President Trump in this current onslaught to take him out and to destroy him and his family completely?

President Trump is fighting every single minute of every single day for you and your family.  He is continuing to fight to deliver the promises you asked him to keep to ensure that our children continue to have the ability to pursue their personal, spiritual and economic happiness.  He is the lone barrier to a complete world dominance of the United States and a takeover by globalist powers.  He stands alone against a Progressive-Left media and both Republican and Democrat politicians who are in sync in their efforts to stop Trump’s America First.  Just ask yourself, how many Republicans are actually fighting to support President Trump and your interests?  Not many and even those who once in a while support us also bend with the wind and oppose us and President Trump! 

Today, the Progressive Left is constantly accusing President Trump of Colluding with the Russians to harm America, Obstructing Justice by firing the disgraced Jim Comey, Obstructing Justice by firing AG Jeff Sessions, Obstructing Justice by opposing the Mueller Witch Hunt, criminal Federal Election Law abuses by paying off two women alleging sexual improprieties even though these actions began in 2014, one and a half years before Trump announced his candidacy, and investigations of the Trump Foundation for various alleged unlawful actions.  There are more but suffice it to say that the entire federal bureaucracy, the DOJ and the FBI, State Attorneys General,  the media, and both political parties are using every tactic they can to Stop Trump!

Trump is standing firm and fighting back with everything he has at his disposal.  The DOJ/FBI/Mueller are using despicable tactics to coerce cooperation from anyone Trump has ever met to get to Trump.  Trump is standing firm on his agenda and fights every day to accomplish your America First aspirations.  Trump is taking his fight directly to his foes and is relying on you to stand with him against the rest of the world!

Trump 2020 Tactic

Trump will use all of those aligned against him as cut outs to attack their agenda to take America Down.  He will use all of those aligned against him to draw the contrast between America First and those who embrace taking America Down.  He will use every tool at his disposal to fight back for your benefit.  He cannot be defeated as long as you stand behind him!  Trump is strong and believes his supporters are as well.

Border Wall:  Trump is disappointed, to put it mildly, that a Republican led Congress would not fund the border wall and make the immigration law changes that he supports.  He INTENTIONALLY let the House fend for itself in the mid-terms so he could purge as many anti-Trump RINOs as he could from the house.  Now, he is using the border wall funding to force the Democrats and RINOs to stand up and be counted as opposing the Wall and our national security.  Trump will build the wall even if he has to pull funds from other federal agencies or the military under the banner of national security.  He will use this fight as a cornerstone of his 2020 campaign and to campaign for Republican House and Senate candidates who support his border security policies.

Foreign Policy:  The Progressive-Left is hammering the President for supporting our national interests in not turning his back on Saudi Arabia in spite of the death of the Saudi, Muslim Brotherhood, Washington Post reporter.  If Trump had turned his back on Saudi Arabia, then Iran would be bolstered up and weaken Trump’s effort for a domestically sponsored regime change.  Any chance for a Middle East peace plan would also go by the wayside without Saudi Arabian backing.  They will do everything the can to support China against the “Trump Trade War” which will not only hurt our economy and our workers but throw a monkey wrench in the middle of Trump’s Korean Denuclearization efforts.  Make no mistake, all of Trump’s America First foreign policy efforts are diametrically opposed by the Global Progressive-Left!

Economy:  Trump will continue to support his pro-growth agenda and fight for every single job in America.  He will fight to make sure that every American has a chance to pursue their happiness.  He will not be able to make the past rounds of middle class tax cuts permanent with a Pelosi led House but he can hold the line against any effort to reverse his economic successes.  Be aware though, that Wall Street is NOT Pro-Trump and will do everything the can to convince you that Trump is pushing us into a recession.  Why, they are 100% global oriented and see America as a cow they can milk to feed their global interests!  They will do everything they can to hurt the stock market as a rise in stock prices makes Trump look good!  Trump will continue to fight against the Federal Reserve interest hikes until his Tariff fights against China, the EU and others are settled.  Why?  Because every time the Fed raises interest rates it strengthens our dollar against other currencies making foreign imports cheaper and our exports to others more expensive.  In short, it reduces the pain to China and the EU when Trump raises US Tariffs against these economies.

Minority Communities:  The Progressive-Left’s most feared Trump policy is his efforts in raising our inner-cities out of abject poverty and causing the Black and Hispanic minorities to take a second look at supporting Trump!  Trump’s support among these communities has skyrocketed to over 30% recently which if translated into votes, would doom any Democrat chance to keep the House and expel Trump from the White House!  Trump has established “Opportunity Zones” to create pubic-private partnerships to increase jobs and opportunities in targeted inner-city and rural locations.  His second push will be to provide real school choice for minorities to rid them from the shackles of second-rate public education.  He will use executive orders and regulations from the Department of Education to go as far as he can without Congressional action.  He will use both of these efforts to contrast the Democrat efforts to keep minorities in poverty and living in drug infested communities.  Minority unemployment is at an all time low.  Guess who will win this argument!

President Trump sees all of the attacks against him personally and against his policies as opportunities.  He wakes up every day and commits himself to continuing his fight for you.  He never tweets, “gee, I don’s think I can win against all of these attacks”.  He is always on the offensive.  We all need to be behind him and fight by his side. If you were a multi-billionaire, would you risk everything to fight for others?  Trump did!

How Trump Will Save Social Security and Lower the Deficit

See the source image

Where Does President Trump Find the Money?

Will Congress Cooperate?

President Donald Trump has been speaking about creating a balanced budget economy for years.  He totally “gets” the numbers, the contributors to the deficit, and the drivers of achieving a balanced budget.  Contrary to most “Never Trumpers” and RINO elites, the President’s economic plan is absolutely Fiscally CONSERVATIVE and achievable. 

The President’s plan is based on growing and sustaining the growth of the US Economy, Period.

Trump has laid out his overall economic plan via his speeches, Tweets, and past interviews.  Below are the key elements of the Trump “America First” Economic Plan:

  • Massive Reduction in Regulations
  • Unfettered US Energy Expansion
  • Tax Cuts and Tax Reform
  • Education Reform
  • Repeal & Replace Obamacare
  • Infrastructure Upgrade
  • Welfare Reform
  • Immigration Reform
  • Budget Cuts

Saving Social Security, Medicare and the reduction in the national debt will be discussed at the end of the plan.  This is due to the need to re-establish our economy, re-educate our citizens, and make many systemic changes to existing programs and budgets.  The results of the Trump America First Economic Plan will be the saving of Social Security, Medicare and a reduction in the national debt and the establishment of ongoing balanced budgets!

Massive Reduction in Regulations and Unfettered US Energy Expansion:

President Trump has long-held that in order for the US economy to grow, you must remove the boot of the government regulators from the throat of business entities.  Secondly, low-cost energy is the key to driving business expansion and reducing the costs of goods and services as well as lower direct energy costs to consumers.  To date, in 11 months, President Trump has rolled back over 1,000 business killing regulations and instituted a 2:1 regulation reduction where any new regulation must be met with the elimination of two existing regulations.  Further, he has opened up more inland and off-shore drilling areas and is working with Congress to open up the vast Alaska reserves in ANWAR.  President has laid the regulatory and energy foundation to support a strong America First economy.  Trump’s regulation rollbacks and pro-energy policies have propelled the DOW to a gain of 6,000 points since his election and have added trillions to the stock value of US companies.

Tax Cuts & Tax Reform:

President Trump is a pure Reagan/Kennedy hawk when it comes to the use of tax cuts to drive increases in tax revenues and the need to keep the tax code as simple as possible.  He believes that tax cuts stimulate the economy in stark contrast to the Obama administration’s belief that bigger government and higher taxes drive the economy.  President Trump laid out his tax and reform principles and the House and Senate have both passed their version of the Trump Tax cuts.  Now, it is up to the combined House and Senate conference committees to unify the chambers and pass a compromise tax bill that adheres to the Trump guidelines.

The impact of the tax cuts should be dramatic based on past tax cuts.  When Reagan cut taxes in the 1980’s, he created 15 million new jobs and DOUBLED the tax revenues!  Current projections are that federal tax revenues for 2018 (ending October, 2018) will be 3.654 (half are from income taxes)  without the tax cuts.  Since the tax cuts will only be effect for 10 months, assuming passage in the next few days, the tax revenues may not increase significantly in 2018.  But, by the end of 2020. tax revenues should increase by at least 1.5 Trillion dollars.  That would raise the total revenues to about 5.2 Trillion with at least 10 million+ new jobs added.  Similar increases in revenue will be seen for Social Security and Medicare.

Education Reform:

Trump’s education plan is an integral part of America First and is vital to providing literate and educated Americans to fill the anticipated new jobs created through regulation and tax reform.  Education reform is also integral to Trump’s plan to raise those trapped in poverty in our inner-cities into the American mainstream.

Trump’s plan includes decentralizing education from the Federal Government to the States and local school boards.  Further, that School Choice be at the forefront of the education reform, especially for inner-city children who are trapped in Progressive-Left public schools.  The Secretary of Education is a School Choice proponent who has spent her entire career, and invested personally, in charter and other forms of alternative educational providers.  Ms. DeVos will also seek to return the curriculum to the basics reduce illiteracy rates, and re-emphasize STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) courses.  

Without improving our educational systems and graduating capable students, the economic outlook for the US is bleak and pressure politicians to supplement our workforce with foreign nationals.  This would be ridiculous as our citizens are more than capable of being educated and lead this nation to new heights of US predominance.

Repeal & Replace Obamacare:

This is a sore subject but the reason the repeal and replace is that it is vital to increasing revenues, decreasing taxes and regulations on 1/6th of the economy!  There are billions in hidden costs that Obamacare added to the cost of healthcare in the form of taxes on pharmaceuticals, medial devices and private citizens via mandates.  Further, Obamacare diverts trillions of dollars over a decade from consumer pockets to support a failed healthcare environment.  Also, the 860 Billion dollars that was diverted from Medicare to Obamacare has to be returned to Medicare to keep it solvent over the long haul.

Think of Obamacare as a drag on every sector in our economy as it raises healthcare costs on individuals, small businesses, and large corporations while adding nothing to the quality of medicine.

Infrastructure Upgrade:

The President departs from some conservatives when he touts his proposed $1 Trillion dollar infrastructure plan.  But, conservatives should look a little deeper and see that the President envisions a public-private partnership, read cost sharing, arrangement to pour private sector dollars into the plan.  Further, he believes that if enacted as he proposed, his tax plan should bring back into the US about $3.5 Trillion dollars in parked offshore corporation profits that should yield about $350 Billion in taxes that would otherwise not have been collected.  The President sees these dollars as the public sector’s ante to improve US infrastructure without blowing a hole in the budget and adding significantly to the deficit.  Before jumping off of the fiscal bridge, remember that this program will not be completed in one or even two years. The infrastructure project will consume all of Trump’s first term and maybe more.

Keep in mind that President Trump is a builder.  He is used to the concept that when he was trying to build a building, he had to foot the costs for sidewalks, road improvement, water, sewage etc.  He will certainly negotiate with the private sector to invest in our infrastructure with every expansion project and new business development.  

Welfare Reform: (Does not include Social Security and Medicare which are not welfare programs)

President Trump surprised those who have not been with him from the beginning of his candidacy, with an announcement that he will be pursuing welfare reform with Congress in 2018!  There are approximately 68 million Americans receiving some form of Government assistance today (including those drawing unemployment)!  67% of those receiving welfare benefits stay on welfare for at least 1 year while 20% ( of million people) of those have been on welfare for more than 5 years. 

Trump’s corporate and small business tax cuts are key to welfare reform and his “Welfare to Work” plans.  Welfare reform cannot be fully effective until there are jobs to absorb those leaving welfare and entering the workplace.  

Trump’s education reforms are also key to welfare reform as our economy is dependent on a literate and educated workforce.  While improvements in education for the minority inner-cities will take time, it is critical to begin the education reform as soon as possible.  Secretary of Education DeVos is currently making as many regulatory changes as possible to make education choice more available to inner-city minorities.  It will take Congressional action to expand school choice and move rapidly away from a centralized educational system to a State centric educational system.

Welfare reform is also a key to Trump’s raising the opportunity potential for minorities as Blacks, who represent 12% of the US population make up 39.6% of the welfare recipients.  Trump’s plan to improve the lives of minorities is only possible through welfare reform and providing substantive employment for minorities trapped in poverty.  

If President Trump can cut welfare spending by 20%, which should be attainable, he can reduce the welfare costs by $14 Billion per year!  Those returning to work, will also become tax payers and pay payroll taxes in support of social security and Medicare and possibly even income taxes.

Immigration Reform:

Immigration reform is vital to the US for several reasons:  One, to keep illegal immigration from directly lowering wages for US citizens; Two, to only allow immigrants into the US who can add value to our economy; Three, to not allow criminal aliens or terrorists into our country via an open border and who endanger the lives of US citizens; Four, to stop drug and human trafficking; Five,  To substantially reduce the roughly $115 Billion in costs to support illegal immigrants living in the US, less the amount of taxes collected from illegal aliens. .  This includes $45.9 Billion in Federal spending and $89 Billion in State and local spending.

Budget Cuts: 

Trump is proposing a Trillion Dollar reduction, $1,000,000,000,000, in the Federal Budget over 10 years.  A 3 Trillion dollar budget was the norm until Bush and Obama came along!  This equates to a $100 Billion budget reduction per year.  Trump is proposing a significant reduction in the federal bureaucracy in all functions of government and a significant rollback in welfare and discretionary spending via head count reductions.  If the Trump tax plan generates the economic growth that is expected, there should be no need to cut Social Security and Medicare due to increased contributions from  the 16-20+ million new jobs that will have been created.

The president will add to his cuts the savings from the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, immigration reform, welfare reform, and other program realignments and deregulation.  It is interesting to note that the conservative host of the Ingraham Angle on Fox news, Laura Ingraham, tweeted that Trump should hurry to fill the Whitehouse open staff positions so he can be more efficient.  Trump Tweeted back that he had no intention of filling many of the federal positions in order to reduce costs and streamline the federal bureaucracy including his own staff!  That is how you get federal spending inline!

It is a game changer with a business man in the Whitehouse!

Conclusion:  Saving Social Security, Medicare and Reducing the Debt!

For some odd reason, our elected officials have not figured out that if you have a retirement plan, or a healthcare plan, like social security and Medicare, it is good to have as many people paying into the plan as possible.  DUH!  Therefore, any effort you can exert to increase the number of participants, also known as private sector employees, should be accomplished every single day.  If tax cuts stimulate employment, and creates more employees paying payroll taxes, then you should implement deep cuts as soon as possible!

For some odd reason, our elected officials have not figured out that if you owe a lot of money, you should do everything you can to increase your revenue and decrease your spending!  Stop the interest expense bleeding!  So, if you owe a lot of money, and tax cuts can increase your revenue, then you cut taxes.  If you are spending more than you are taking in, then you cut spending!  There, we are done, we can go home and fire Congress!

Social Security today has a SURPLUS of $2.8 Trillion dollars that is earning a paltry 2.3% per year.  Social Security payments to retirees exceed the amount of Social Security contributions by about $90 Billion per year.  The shortfall includes both social security retirement payments as well as disability payments that have ballooned during the Obama years. 

If Trump’s America First Economic Plan kicks in as expected, we should add a minimum of 16-20 million new workers in the next 3-4 years.  Assuming that 10 million of these workers earn $50,000 per year and 6 million earn $100,000 per year, the Social Security fund would add $600 billion over the next 10 years even at a paltry 4% interest return.  By the end of 2024, with continued employment gains, the Social Security fund would be virtually self-sustaining.

The Federal debt today is 20.6 Trillion dollars!  President Trump understands that his economic plan is not an instant fix and will take 2+ years to totally kick in.  This also assumes that Congress does not raise taxes later nor spends wildly like under Reagan.  President Trump constantly reminds everyone that the US GDP is increasing and should exceed 3.5% in the fourth quarter.  Why is this important?  For every percent rise in GDP, $2.5 Trillion dollars are added to the GDP.  During the Obama years, GDP growth only averaged 1.075%.  (Bush was only slightly better)  In the last 20 years of the 20th century, GDP growth averaged 3.4%!  If President Trump can merely match the last 20 years of the 20th century, he will add $5.8 Trillion to our GDP!  Tax revenues will also increase proportionally and provide funding for NON ENTITLEMENT programs such as Social Security and Medicare!

Couple of final thoughts.  Social Security and Medicare funds are required to be invested in only government securities that have terrible yields, 2% in 2016.  If The Social Security and Medicare funds were invested in a safe S&P 500 fund, it would have averaged 9.9% over the past 40 years.  If the phoneys in Congress try to say that this would be too risky, it is an admission that they can not responsibly manage this country and its economy.  If they are really scared, they could put an automatic trigger in place that if the S&P yield fell below 2%, the funds would be invested again in Government Securities, or, any shortfalls would be reimbursed out of general funds during the shortfall periods.  Slim chance!

Secondly, why are public employees EXEMPTED from paying into social security?  This takes a large pool of social security contributions out of the fund and for what reason?  Congress should change this immediately and make the government and its employees subject to the same retirement systems!

Consider this:  If you are receiving around $2,300/month from Social Security today, you would be receiving $12,000/month if the funds had been invested in S&P 500 funds.  And Congress thinks that we the people are not smart enough to do the math?  Entitlement reform should not include Social Security and Medicare.  These two programs were paid for by taxpaying employees and their employers and it is not their fault that our government is a poor money manager.

Merry Christmas and Thank You President Trump for pushing through the passage of our Tax Cuts!

Trump Must Send Troops into Harms Way-#DumpNFL Is Personal

Trump’s Biggest Nightmare!

Image result for trump with flag draped casket

Wonder why Trump is so passionate about the Anthem and the Flag? 

Everyday when he wakes up, he has the lives thousands of troops and the future of their families in his hands and must make decisions that put them in harm’s way. 

The Anthem and our Flag have a life and death meaning to the President.  Seeing the faces of those he puts into the crosshairs of our enemies, leaves no room for disrespecting the Anthem and Flag that are the symbols of their sacrifice and the sacrifice of millions who have stood for this nation. 

Not so much to pampered multi-millionaire professional athletes and Hollywood Elites.

The saddest part of the so-called protest by this bunch of pampered athletes, and throw in the Hollywood elite, is that they have little or no interest in fact-finding before engaging in idiotic, and baseless protests and rhetoric against this President. 

Kaepernick’s False Premise

Kaepernick started his protest in August of 2016 following the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson.  Black activists whipped up the false conclusion that Brown was feloniously shot by a white police officer as Brown had his hands up leading to the chant, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”.  The police officer has since been exonerated of any wrongdoing based on the testimony of many Black witnesses.  So, the resulting Kaepernick “justification” for protesting the National Anthem and our Flag is based on a LIE.  

The Progressive-Left is using these athletes and goofy Hollywood elites to frame the President as a racist and White-Supremacist!  This was started by Crooked Hillary during the last election.  But, the President’s actions belie this falsehood.

Progressive-Left Kills Black Potential

The lack of opportunity for Blacks and Hispanics has been created and perpetuated by the Progressive-Left control over education.  For years, Black parents have supported School Choice via vouchers but have been denied choice by Black Activists and the Progressive-Left Democrats.  Obama absolutely opposed offering Black children school choice and thus a chance for a future.  24% of Blacks in America are functionally illiterate. This denies Blacks from participating in the American Dream and the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty.  Democrat city mayors have thwarted efforts in the past to implement changes to improve their communities.  Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore have become the poster children for failed inner cities and Black lack of opportunity.

President Trump has done more for the Black community in 8 months than Obama did in 8 Years. 

Trump’s cuts in regulations and Executive Orders have enhanced Black economic opportunities.  Under Obama, Black family incomes fell by more than $900 per year.  Under Trump in 8 months, those same families have seen their income rise by over $1,000 per year.  Trump has reduced Black unemployment by over 1% in 8 months and increased the number of Blacks with a job by over 600,000 since he was elected.  The rate of growth of Black jobs has increased by 40% under Trump versus Obama!  This equals 30,000 new jobs for Blacks per MONTH!

Trump is also moving to create EDUCATION CHOICE for Black children to increase their life opportunities.  Trump is being fought by Obama holders, Obama himself, Teacher’s Unions, and the main Progressive-Left media machine.  The Left has demonized Secretary of Education DeVos since her nomination.  She is a committed education pro-choice advocate for years.  Her family has been involved for decades on education choice.  The more she succeeds, the more the Left squeals.  

Maybe the Multi-Million Dollar Professional Athletes and Goofy Hollywood Types could get Behind this Program to Really Help Blacks!

So, when Trump seems to get overly animated when defending our country, its auditory symbol, the National Anthem, and the visual symbol, the American Flag, he sees this through the prism of the young men and women who sacrifice everything to defend this country to allow us all to seek the American Dream. 

Image result for Trump and his troops

He sees this nation as the hope for Blacks, Hispanics and all peoples to seek and achieve the American Dream.  He sees past the noise of fake issues and dreams of an America where its role models (athletes and other entertainers) would promote the opportunities that this nation offers to lift all of its citizens out of poverty, lives of crime, and achieve their dreams.  Further, that these same role models would join in the effort to lift all boats!  But, by railing against the very fabric of this nation and its President, these role models tamp down the dreams and opportunities for those who need a hand up.  

Pray that President Donald J. Trump never loses his passion to defend this nation and its revered symbols.  If he does, opportunity for our inner cities will die.

Global Elitist Goal:

Global Elitist seek World Political and Economic Supremacy over All Peoples.  Period! 

  • They create depressed classes of Peoples and drive them into abject despair so they can be manipulated into helping the Global Elites destroy the fabric of civil society.  In order to achieve their goal, the Global Elitist must isolate these groups to the point that disparate groups see each other as their mortal enemy, literally.  Blacks have been used for years by the Global Elitist in the US to keep them in power with little regard for the plight of the Blacks.
  • The Global Elitist will shame the Nation States to open their borders in order to share their generosity with Peoples of lessor nations.  This will increase tensions as the new immigrants are so culturally disparate that assimilation and the development of mutual respect or acceptance is impossible.  Blacks have disproportionately been harmed by cheaper immigrant labor that have robbed entry-level jobs from young Blacks.
  • The Global Elitist must be able to seize absolute control over Nation States who must be beaten down to the point where they seek help from anywhere to survive.  The Global Elitist lobby to Blacks and other minorities to blame all of their woes on Republicans and conservatives and lift up international agencies as friends of the Blacks in fight the oppression from within.
  • The Rule of Law in the Nation States must be made irrelevant by continual Constitutional erosion from globalist courts, erosion of governance checks and balances, and a systemic erosion of personal, political and ethical values by the ruling classes.  The Global Elitist continually stir racial tensions between Blacks and Whites.  They use law enforcement as an example of racial animus of the Whites towards the Blacks.  This serves to justify Black rioting as a means to achieve “social justice” but it is a further erosion of the rule of law.
  • The Global Elitist create economic chaos within developed nations that drives up the debt of these nations to the brink of bankruptcy in order to bring down the strong nations to the level of the lessor nations.  Once the nation states have been leveled off politically and economically, the Global Elitist will step in and “Save the World”!  The Global Elites use economic chaos to pit minorities against Whites in general to deepen the racial divide and keep the focus off of themselves.

Are Global Elitist Succeeding in Establishing Anarchy in the United States?

Forward:  The balance of this article will focus primarily on the Global Elitist goal of creating racial tensions and segregation in American in order to take down America to the point where it cannot remain as the enviable bastion of Democracy and Freedom in the world.  In the short-term the Global Elitist will continue to foster racial tensions between Blacks and Whites with the goal being to keep Democrats in power.  Open borders, anti-nationalism, global economic chaos, and the pitting of disparate groups against each other internally and internationally will be discussed in the context of race relations in the United States and the role of the Global Elitist in fomenting racial tensions.  If the Blacks come together with Whites to actually work together to solve the decades of political abuse of the Blacks at the hands of the Democrats, the Global Elitist goals will be threatened.  They will even encourage outright anarchy in order to win the 2016 election if needed.

Global Elitist Insertion Into the US Government:

Political Landscape Changes in the US: 

Over the past 50 years, the Progressive takeover of the Democrat Party has been completed and included the full integration of Global Elite goals.  The Global Elites have also been able to infiltrate the leadership and rank and file of the Republican Party.  The Republican Party has embraced many of the Open Borders objectives and Globalism in trade.  Many have also embraced the expansion the Government and the rapid increase in the national debt in spite of a sluggish growth of the US economy.  The Republican Neo-Conservative movement is evidence of the GOP embracing positions that are not typical Republican Conservative positions.  Global Elites with international business interest have been dominant in both parties in driving legislation that benefits the Global Elites over American workers.  The view that the rights of US citizens should be diminished for the “Global Good” has not only been promoted but integrated into our national political thinking.  The result of this shift has been persistent high unemployment, stagnant GDP growth, more US businesses moving out of the US, an $800B trade deficit, and a whopping $20 Trillion dollar national debt!  The impact on the Black and other minority communities has been disproportionately high creating further frustration resulting in feelings of being left behind and politically detached.   Global Warming, refugee relocation, and amnesty for illegal aliens now trump jobs and financial security for US Citizens for the “greater good”.

Deterioration of US Race Relations:

Racial relations in the US have deteriorated substantially over the past 8 years under the Obama administration.  If Obama had intentionally stirred up animosity between Whites and Blacks, he could have not been more successful.  Blacks today have been convinced by the Global Elitist that Republicans were the slave owners, the ones who created the “Jim Crow Laws”, the ones who tried to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the ones who started the KKK!  The bottom line is that US leadership, left and right, has failed miserably in creating better race relations and have built a seemingly impenetrable walls between US racial groups.  Blacks have traditionally overwhelmingly supported the Democrat Party and believe that the GOP does not represent their best interest.  (Donald Trump is changing this perception but not for the GOP, but for his populist message)  The result of this degradation in race relations has yielded the following:  Blacks distrust law enforcement;  Blacks in the inner-cities receive inferior education when compared to the balance of the country;  Black on Black crime in the inner-cities is spiraling out of control;  Black illiteracy rates in the inner-cities averages 50% with very low high school graduation rates;  Black out-of-wedlock births have sky rocketed;  Black unemployment is least double that of other ethnic groups;  Blacks have the highest per capita incarceration rate of any other ethnic group; and Blacks have one of the lowest home ownership numbers of any group.  In short, the status of the Black and other inner-city minorities have deteriorated greatly over the past 8 years.  As a group, Blacks have been set up as the physically disruptive force in the US as evidenced in recent riots that resulted out of police shootings of blacks regardless of whether the shooting was justified or not. Black Lives Matters and other Black anarchist groups are now threatening destruction of historic statues and monuments that may be perceived as “racist” due to their commemoration of the Civil War South.  The destruction of the historical monuments and the attempts to rewrite history is to take away and references to historical truths that tie Slavery, the Civil War, and the continuing downward spiral of the Black community to the Democrat party who are the political arm of the Global Elitist in America!

Open Borders:

Both political parties have systematically voted for increased immigration levels, almost unlimited VISA grants, and dramatically increased levels of refugees from several countries.  The result of these policy changes has been increased competition for US jobs between US citizens and the newcomers;  fewer opportunities for our minorities, including Blacks, to achieve the American Dream;  increased welfare, education, and other government program costs to support the newcomers at the expense of the American taxpayer; health concerns due to the lack of health screening of illegal immigrants and refugees; lower national security due to the lack of vetting for immigration and refugees coming into the US from nations supporting terrorism.  The US Black community has suffered greatly from the Open Border policies imposed by the pawns of the Global Elitist.  Many in the Black community have not even realized the total impact of open borders on their own community.  The lower job growth, lower opportunity availability, and financial impacts on the Black community that have resulted from open borders have added greatly to the frustration in the Black households.

Global Elitist & Use of Blacks to Create Anarchy and Disrupt 2016 Elections

Image result for charlotte race riotsCharlotte, NC, Riots 9/21/2016 – North Carolina Key Battleground State Between Trump and Clinton

The Global Elitist such as George Soros have pumped millions of dollars into Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other anarchist groups in order to disrupt the US political process and ensure that the Global Elitist prevail in 2016 in light of the strong challenge by Populist Donald Trump.  BLM is directly coordinating all rioting and demonstration activities surrounding any law enforcement encounters with Blacks.  The narrative is that law enforcement is inherently Racist regardless of the race of the police officer.  In other words, if a Black copy shoots a Black person, it is a racially motivated shooting as all cops are racists.  Originally BLM was not going after shootings by Black officers but there have not been enough shootings by White officers to keep the riots going!

Race Baiting Politicians

Obama and Clinton keep stoking the fires of the cries of racism by not standing on the side of law and order but pandering to the BLM anarchist movement.  This has been a pattern for both of these politicians for the past 8 years.  In the minds of the Global Elitist, an America on fire is better than a Trump presidency!  In the minds of the Global Elitist, any Means Justifies the End, which is Global Elitist domination over the world.

What to Expect from Global Elitist Before November 8th?

Who knows how far this will go.  Will Obama eventually declare Marshal Law and suspend the elections?  Will BLM force the hand of the civil society to take lethal action to quell the social unrest.  Will Obama militarize our nation and physically seize control?  Those are far-fetched possibilities but I would have thought that mass rioting in a historic city in North Carolina over a police action that resulted in the death of an armed Black man, with a 20 year felony history, at the hand of a Black police officer who reports to a Black Chief of Police would be far-fetched.

Solution:  Black and White Unity and Rejection of Race Baiting Global Elitist

Image result for Racism

The Trump campaign is seeking systemic solutions to changing the negative paradigm of Black inner-city communities.  He is not pandering with hand-outs but with adding school choice for Blacks, bringing back jobs to the inner-cities, bringing back investment into the inner-cities, strengthening community policing so inner-city residents feel safe in their homes and on their streets, and ending racial tensions between Whites and Blacks through mutual efforts to lift all Americans up by working together and discontinuing the politics of racial divide.  If Trump is elected, this does not mean that the Global Elitist will take their marbles and go home.  Quite the contrary.  They will use the Main Stream Media (MSM) to hammer every unifying advancement that is gained and try to insert a “social injustice” wedge in between the Blacks and the Whites, law enforcement and the citizens, government and the people.  It will be an all out war and not fought with any degree of civility.

The other lever they will pull is Islamophobia.  This is present today but has not been totally exploited by the Global Elitist as it has proven to be less effective than fomenting discourse between Blacks and Whites.  Those pesky terrorist use bombs rather than guns, target gays, and are not particularly friendly to any non-Muslim group.  Maybe that is why they are Muslim Radical Terrorist rather than Global Elite Muslim Terrorist!  But, if the Blacks begin working with Whites to improve Black living conditions, the Global Elitist will seek out any mechanism they can find to exploit. 

Maybe after Obama leaves office we can actually embark on a true path to a Post-Racial America!  Obama used his bully pulpit to divide and pit one citizen group against the other at the bidding of the Global Elitist. 

Trump does not agree with or need the support of the Global Elitist.  Maybe, just maybe, we actually have someone who will represent We the People, regardless of race, religion, or other distinguishing personal difference.

The Clinton’s and the Dems, The Real Ugly Face Of Racism

41% of Hispanic & 24% of Black Adults Are Functionally Illiterate In the U.S.

 

He Would get us Coffee47% of the Citizens of Detroit and Chicago are Illiterate!

Trump and Minority Outreach

Trump, once again, is the leading voice in calling attention to a problem plaguing our once great nation.  The problem is the impact of the Democrat Party’s policies in our inner cities that condemn its minority, mainly African-American, citizens to poverty, crime infested neighborhoods, and illiteracy. 

Democrat Dominance:  The Democrat Party has ruled in many of our major cities for over the past 50-100 years leaving third world living conditions in its wake.  All the while blaming “Whites” and specifically White Republicans for the woes created by the Leftist Democrat Party agenda. 

The Left has been so successful in their indoctrination of the African-American communities that as a block Blacks voted 95% and 93% respectively for Barak Obama against John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012.  McCain and Romney and even Bush did little or nothing to sway the Black voting block to vote for them. 

Democrat Economic Slavery:  The inner cities with high crime rates and high unemployment in the Black Communities, all suffer from long-term Democrat controlled City governments.  Their pro teacher union sub-par education programs have created a group of individuals without hope for a future, an acceptance of abject poverty and high crime rates as the status quo.  They line up for the same Democrat politicians, backed by race baiters like Jackson, Sharpton, Rev. Wright, and others, and vote against bettering their own futures. 

Merging of Shared Interests:  The inner city policies that drive up poverty, illiteracy and high crime rates, are aided and abetted by Federal policy as well.  This is not only the fault of the Democrat Party, but the Republican Party shares almost an equal share of the blame.  The Democrat Party is actively pursing Leftist policies that expand government dependency and drive unemployment, poverty, high crime rates, and a degradation of education while the Republican Party stands idly by allowing the Leftist to have their way.  In the end, both parties have morphed into monolithic globalist open border elitist protagonists.  The Republicans are more focused on pimping to their globalist big business interests while allowing the Democrats to soothe the minorities into believe that their present plight is the fault of others and there is not way out!  Both parties are not really concerned who is in the majority as the end result is the same!  More government, more poverty, higher crime and higher illiteracy!

Status Quo Acceptance by High and Middle Income Blacks:  The saddest part of this scenario is the acceptance of this status quo by upper and middle-income Blacks and Hispanics who tend to vote with their lower-income counterparts!  In 2014, 1.6% of Blacks had an income over $200,000; 11% from $100K to $200K; 38% from $35K to $100K;  and 49% below $35K (primarily residents in our inner cities).  The upper income Blacks ($100K+) total 12.6% of the Black population.  If you assume that half of the population earning between $100K and $35K are middle-income, the total upper and middle-income Blacks would be 31.6% of the total Black population.  This is far higher than the 5% or so of Blacks who did not vote for a non Democrat in the past two elections.  If the upper/middle-income Blacks felt that the Republicans offered a better outcome for Blacks as a whole, they would probably switch!

Obama Anomaly?:  Many Republicans hide behind Obama as being the first Black President as an excuse for overwhelming support of the Black community for the Democrat ticket.  But, a look at the voting and registration breakout of the Black voting block belies this assumption to a great extent.  In the 2000 and 2004 election Bush won both contests.  In 2000 and 2004 Bush only received 8% and 11% of the Black vote.  Prior to Bush, going back to 1964, the highest percentage of the Black Vote, 15%, came in 1968 for Nixon and 1976 for Ford.  So, the fact that the first Black president garnered 95% of the vote, compared to a 44 year low of 85% of the Black vote for a Democrat, indicates that there is another explanation as to why Republicans receive such a low percentage of the Black Vote. 

Civil Rights Act of 1964:  In 1960, Democrat John Kennedy received only 68% of the Black vote and Republican Richard Nixon received 32% of the Black vote.  In the 1956 election, Republicans received 39% of the Black Vote; the highest percentage of Black votes received by a Republican in over 75 years!  So what happened in 1964 to allow Democrat Lyndon Johnson to receive 94% of the Black Vote, equal to what was received by Barak Obama?  Of course it was the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The irony is that although this legislation was initiated by Democrat John Kennedy, it was only due to the voting by Republicans in the House and Senate that allowed this historic bill to pass!  Over 80% of the Republicans voted for passage in the House while only 63% of the Democrats voted for the House bill.  In the Senate, 80% of the Republicans voted for passage while only 69% of the Democrats voted for passage (66% for Cloture).

Win the Vote, Lose the Hearts:  Typical of Republicans, they won the vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act but received very little credit for doing so in the Black Community!  But, this is their legacy in race relations since the assignation of Lincoln!  The Right has never done a good job promoting their fight for equal rights for all, including the Blacks, and actually received the blame for the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow Laws that were actually supported by the Democrat Party!  The Republicans have virtually conceded control of the African-American and Hispanic vote to the Democrats!

Enter Trump!

Just as Trump has done with immigration, jobs, trade, crime, terrorism etc., Trump is now taking up the cause of our inner cities and the plight of the minorities trapped in their morass of corruption, crime, violence, poverty and illiteracy.  No other Republican candidate in memory has ever put so many “chips” on the table for this cause! 

Trump understands that he may or not be successful, from an election perspective, in attracting enough of the Black and Hispanic votes with his outreach to justify the time and effort his campaign is expending.  But, it is yet another “injustice” he has identified that deserves not only his voice, but the attention of the American people, and certainly our elected officials in Washington DC, in State government, and certainly in our inner city government. 

Trump not only highlighted the plight of our inner cities, but will sit down in Detroit and other cities to discuss the plight of our fellow citizens trapped in these hell-holes with those very citizens.  He won’t pander like Clinton with her bottle of “hot sauce” or all of a sudden develop an African-American inflection in his voice, whatever that is, to talk down to those he is sharing this time.  He will listen to their voices and let them know that he plans to clean up their crime laden streets, promote minority owned local businesses, bring back jobs, offer school choice, and reverse policies that have promoted single parent homes and high out of wedlock birth rates. 

Trump will ruffle a lot of feathers with this inner city campaign, but those feathers deserve to be ruffled.  Our inner cities are a disgrace to who we are as a people, as Christians, and as human beings.  Democrats will cry that Trump really does not care and Republicans will cower down in a corner and hope he just goes away!  Globalist/Anarchists will be the most disappointed if Trump succeeds as they need to disrupt this nation to the highest degree possible so they and their oligarchy can reap the benefits of chaos.  If Trump does not win this battle, we are in for a racial divide that we have not experienced in our history.

The Failure of Black Leadership is Failing the Black Community

     I received a half true email story this morning about Sheila Jackson Lee and another of her classic statements.  This one was framed around the naming of hurricanes.  Some would tag the story as a form of racism; others as a characature of today’s black leadership; and others as an indictment of the lack of sound public discourse in today’s society.  The Congresswomen said in 2003 that “All racial groups should be represented,” when naming hurricanes.  Okay, we can do that.  Personally I would not like a hurricane named after me as I do not perceive hurricanes as being necessarily a good thing, especially if there was a loss of life assocated with the storm.  The point is that many of today’s Black Leaders and elected officials see and frame everything in terms of race in order to protect their power base of Black voters.  It is the worst form of racial manipulation there is.  While racism does exist today, it is much less prevelent than it was even in 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was passed by a majority of Congressional Republicans voting for the act and a minority of Congressional Democrats voting for the act.  Racisim or some form of discrimination exists in all cultures and it seems to be inherent, unfortunately, in the human condition;  people seem to need to feel superior to someone else for their own self agrandisement. 

     I would venture to guess today that most of our Black Citizens, (I even hate to even isolate them as a group as it is somewhat of a confirmation on my part that Black Citizens should be grouped and thought of as “different” from the rest of the United State’s populace), would feel that the current Economic Depression that this nation is experiencing and that lack of jobs and advancement opportunities is a whole lot more important than any other issue facing them, and the rest of us, today. 

     The Black Community has been hit hard by the Depression with 16.7% of Black Americans out of work (September 2nd, 2011). (Black men = 19.1% and Black women = 14.5%)  This does not count those who gave up and are not even looking for work.  The actual Black unemployment number is probably closer to 30%.  Black youth fares even worse coming in at around 50%.  One of the saddest biased commentaries I have read on the cause of the high numbers for unemployed Blacks was made by Algernon Auston of the Economic Policy Institute when he said, “…So I do think the fact of racial discrimination in the labor market continues to play a role.” (in Black Unemployment).  Latinos, in the same period where Blacks hit 16.7% unemployment, suffered a rate of 11.3% and white 9.1%.  Why aren’t Latinos closer to 17% if race is a factor?  Why aren’t Asians close to 17% of race is a factor?  Why aren’t whites at 0% if race really is a factor?

     While the White and Black Political Progressives have to follow the teachings of their mesiah. Saul Alinski, in seeking to create “boggy men” and targets to blame all of our ills, it is at the same time a FAILURE OF LEADERSHIP.  Speaking to these political leaders, it is easy for you to focus blame on someone else rather than doing your jobs and seeking real solutions.  It is easy to use the ghosts and shaddows of racism to incite fear, anger, and even hatred of one group against another in order to keep the focus off of your failures as an elected official.  it is easier to blame others rather that do the hard job of governance and make the tough decisions that may or may not make you popular in the short term but provide true benefits to your constituents.

     The real issues facing the Black, and to a similar degree the Latino Community, are not based in racism but a lack of resolve by Black Leadership to provide true equal opportunity to their constituents.  You need to ask youself what the motiviation is for the Black Leadership and elected officials to adopt and champion the following causes:

  • Undying support for the Teachers Unions in the fight against School Vouchers and the expansion of Charter Schools that could provide their children with an equal opportunity to obtain a solid education that can catapult them out of poverty and the inner cities.  Education is the foundation to finding a good entry level job and securing advancement in an individual’s career.  Locking minorities into inner city, failed, public schools is the polar opposite of caring for our children.  When we force young people into failed schools, we have all but guaranteed that those children will remain impoverished throughout their lives or worse turn to a life of crime.
  • Undying support for unfettered illegal immigration that is forcing US citizens to compete against illegal immigrants for jobs and the chance to help themselves out of the downward spiraling into poverty and dispair.  Instead, the Left and the media constantly sell to us that US citizens, White, Black, Hispanic or Asian, will not do the jobs that Illegal Aliens will do.  This is not based on factual data but they garner support from employers who would rather hire illigals that they can illegally manipulate, underpay, or thwart overtime laws to lower their own costs.  How about trying to see if our citizens would rather work than be forced onto public assistance. 
  • Undying support for social programs that enslave the recipients to generations of poverty, hopelessness, and unending dispair.  Why do they support programs that force fathers out of homes so the mothers can receive public assistance?  Why do they support programs that have created generations of young girls who believe that having children when in middle or high school is a “career path” to insure that they receive maximum government benefits when they leave school?  Why do they not support programs that would lower teen pregnancy and promote family values that would help lift young people out of the viscious cycles of poverty?
  • Undying support for unsustainable “affordable housing” programs that led to the Sub-Prime Mortgage crisis that impoverished many, many Black, and many other non Black, citizens, and wiped out even the small economic equity Black families had before securing loans that were in default before the ink dried on the contracts.  Why did they support the fat cats on Wall Street, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the big banks and mortgage companies in creating “home ownership” programs that basically stole what little savings Black and other Non Black families had?  Where was their outcry when thousands of their constitutents were being forced out of their homes due to foreclosure? 
  • Undying support for race based rhetoric that alienates other non Blacks who targeted by these attacks who are not racially motivated one way or another.  This has the effect of alienating many who have and would support “Black” causes and turn them off completely.  We need people solutions and rhetoric, not White, Black, Hispanic or Asian rhetoric or solutions.  We are the UNITED States of America.  We need to start acting like it!

    The timing of receiving this Sheila Jackson Lee story came in the wake of comments from Black Caucus member like; 

  • Maxine Waters, “…the Tea Party can go straight to hell”;
  • Andre Carson,  “…some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”; 
  • Alcee Hastings:  Hasting spoke on how the Tea Party was redirecting thye Republican Party’s agenda and said of it, ‘…all of us know racism’.  
  • Frederica Wilson:  “Let us all remember who the real enemy is… the real enemy is the Tea Party… the Tea Party holds the Congress hostage.” 
  • Sheila Jackson Lee:  “Martin King wrote in 1961 about love, war and civil disobedience and he said we must be determined to resist reactionaries… My friends, you are now entering a reactionary period probably worse than post-Reconstruction.” 

Representative Lee’s comments only served to focus my thoughts on the fact the the Black Caucus and Black Leaders only sees issues in terms of Black vs White.  The comments by the members of the Black Caucus served to underscore their efforts to focus hate, animosity, and blame to the Tea Party movement and its members.  Why the Tea Party?  Saul Alinski has taught the Progressive Left that they have to create an enemy, focus their attacks on that enemy, and blame every ill there is on the enemy.  What they fail to understand is that the Tea Party movement is determined to save America for all Americans, Black, White, Hispanic or any other member of our society.  It is not an ethnic movement, it is a freedom movement.  One would think that Black Leaders could get behind a Freedom Movement!

     The Black Caucus seems to be convinced that their Black constituents would not vote for them any longer if they actually tried to pursue policies that would help their constituents.  They use the federal government, the unions, and causes that are contrary to well being of their Black constituents to corral their constituents into what they hope to be a monolithic voting block.  One can only hope that all Americans, regardless of race, can step back and see that our current path is self-destructive and will lead to the total collapse of this nation.  The use of Racism will only serve to exascerbate the issues and detract from finding true solutions.  The use of Racism will destroy the very Freedoms so many, including African-Americans, have fought and died for since our founding…

Some day maybe Martin Luther King Jr. dreams can be realized. 

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”

“I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together. ”
