Google is a gaggle of fascists.

As just a reminder, fascism is a form of authoritarianism characterized by forcible suppression of the opposition, as well as having a desire to control society and the economy.

You be the judge if Google is operating from a fascist platform or not.

Dan Gainor, of TechWatch, reports for Fox News, “If you wanted an example of the worst abuses of Big Tech and leftist journalism, Google and NBC teamed up this week to deliver one.”

agoogle 2

“NBC and Google try to censor [are censoring] conservative websites, endangering free expression.”

agoogle 3

“An openly leftist NBC staffer based in the United Kingdom worked hand-in-hand with a foreign advocacy group to attack two conservative news organizations in the United States. And Google did its best to help them.”

“NBC reporter Adele-Momoko Fraser, employed at the scary-sounding ‘Verification Center,’ worked with the Center for Countering Digital Hate [CCDH]. CCDH is a British operation that claims it ‘seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.’ ​Together, they tried to financially ruin The Federalist and ZeroHedge.”

agoogle 1

“Fraser and CCDH tried to silence their political opponents with a presidential election less than five months away.  Remember all the media hype about foreign involvement in our elections?  In fact, the anti-Trump media never really cared. They just wanted foreign involvement on their side.”

“Initially, NBC News claimed that Google had ‘banned’ The Federalist and ZeroHedge from its ad platform for the crime of ‘pushing unsubstantiated claims’ about Black Lives Matter.”

Were these “claims” “unsubstantiated” or incompatible with their narrative?

“NBC cited a Google spokesperson as saying the company has policies that ‘explicitly prohibit derogatory content that promotes hatred, intolerance, violence or discrimination based on race from monetizing.’”

I would say they are prohibiting content that may be derogatory, but which are simply stating the truth.

“An article on the NBC website went to claim that both sites had been demonetized, but Google backed off its attacks on The Federalist. For now.”

“The ‘reporter’ was thrilled and thanked CCDH and its sister group ‘for their hard work and collaboration [I would use the word “complicitness”].’ Just in case you thought she was neutral, she even added the Black Lives Matter hashtag. She later deleted that, but the Internet is forever. Just like her bias.”

agoogle 10

“She wasn’t the only one celebrating. Imran Ahmed, CCDH founder and CEO, was ‘delighted’ and tweeted out the article, calling it his organization’s ‘biggest win ever.’”

“CCDH isn’t done by a long shot. The group is ‘calling on advertisers to blacklist these 10, U.S-based, racist Fake News sites.’ The list includes The Federalist and ZeroHedge, along with Breitbart, American Thinker and WND. If leftists like Ahmed have their way, conservatives won’t be allowed to post anywhere online.”

agoogle 5

Who does Google think it is?

Google doesn’t control the internet…, they are merely a search engine utilizing the web.

“Remember that the next time so-called journalism professionals whine about press freedom. Or even complain about the Hollywood blacklist. Leftists now are the new McCarthyites.”

A “McCarthyite” is someone who employs practices that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations.

McCarthyism was a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.”

Today’s “McCarthyite” attacks those who dare to disagree with their Marxist/socialist/communist platform.

“The censorship caused an uproar, especially since it landed right in the middle of both federal and congressional debate about reining in the power of Big Tech companies.”

agoogle 4

“Google wasn’t subtle. It showed the world that it has too much control over our lives and that the most powerful company on Earth is also an enemy of the very freedoms that protect it.”

Well said.

agoogle 13

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of several members of Congress to criticize Google. He sent a letter to the company saying its actions raised ‘serious concerns that Google is abusing its monopoly power in an effort to censor political speech with which it disagrees.’”

It is my belief that MrEricksonRules.com has been a victim of this censorship as well.

Those of you familiar with my site can understand Google wanting to censor me.

I deal with trumpeting the truth, and exposing those who attempt to hide and pervert it.

We the people with American bald eagle and flag.

Based on the statistics provided by my website provider, it is pretty obvious that web searches have been directed away from my website, especially within the US, even though I pay Google to help promote my website!

This would constitute fraud as well as censorship, wouldn’t it?

I have contacted Google Ads regarding this situation, but have not received any communication back as of yet.

What a surprise.

agoogle 11

Isn’t it time to deal with this monopoly?

The government broke up “The” phone company at one point.

The only problem is that many of our politicians like Google being able to censor the internet in their favor, even though it is contrary to our Constitutional rights.

“The co-founders of The Federalist, Ben Domenech and Sean Davis, wrote in The Wall Street Journal: ‘The episode illustrates how dangerous the combination of partisan media and monopolistic tech companies is to America.’”

“They couldn’t be more right. Since this incident occurred, Facebook took down some ads for President Trump on its site, once more bowing to the leftists inside and outside its company.”

“It was also revealed that Twitter had tried to pressure Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and threatened to shut down his account ‘permanently.’”

“Cotton had gotten in trouble with Twitter over the use of the words ‘No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.’ If America is to survive as a free nation, then we might modify Cotton’s statement: ‘No quarter for censorship.’”

How dare he oppose “insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters!”

agoogle 14

“In practical terms, that means Big Tech and its leftist activist buddies in the news media have made it clear they don’t believe in free speech or free press for any that oppose them. They have made it clear they don’t want a free election this year or any time after. They have made it clear they are at war with the very nation that protects the freedoms they have used to become so powerful.”

agoogle 6

“So now the big question: Are we going to let them get away with it?”

If Sleepy Joe wins in November, this will just become standard operating procedure.

Is this a joke, or are these people just completely incompetent?

Oh, this is no joke.

What we have here is a combination of “racism fever,” complete incompetence, and sheer stupidity.

Laura Italiano of The New York Post writes, “The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture has a little-known but controversial section on ‘whiteness’ that is creating a stir on Twitter.”

amuseum 5

I would say “creating a stir” is an odd choice of words.

Please continue with the rest of the blog, and then think about what these actions and statements cause you to think.

“The museum’s online description of the exhibit was tweeted out on Wednesday by Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner.”

amuseum 7

‘“The National Museum of African American History & Culture wants to make you aware of certain signs of “whiteness:” Individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, progress, respect for authority, delayed gratification, and more,’ York tweeted.”

Yes…, much more.

amuseum 10

“In an Examiner opinion piece on Thursday, York pointed out the oddity of so many universally positive attributes being ascribed to ‘whiteness.’”

‘“Most of the attributes listed seem to be a recipe for success for anyone,’ he wrote.”

‘“Certainly, millions of black Americans work hard every day, respect individual effort, plan for the future, are polite to others, and so on.  It seems odd to attribute that to “whiteness,” as opposed to, say, the everyday values of trying to lead a successful life.’”

Saying this is “odd” is quite an understatement.

These black Americans are obviously all “Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas,” Mr. York, and would not really be considered “black” by the likes of the NAACP, Al Sharpton, Colin Kaepernick, or even Joe Biden.

amuseum 4

‘“Yet according to the National Museum of African American History & Culture, “whiteness” it is.’”

“The original tweet had been retweeted, and liked, more than 22,000 times by Thursday afternoon.”

Who are these people “liking” this completely racist, bigoted and brainless determinations, be they white, black, or whatever?!

‘“Not gonna lie, they nailed us in the food section: “bland is best,”’ Washington Post data reporter and self-described ‘Born-again Minnesotan’ Christopher Ingraham quipped in response.”

I’m not gonna lie either…, you’re an idiot, Mr. Ingraham.

amuseum 28

When you were “born-again,” were you born without a brain?

amuseum 29

I can’t even begin to comment on the level of assumed stereotypical stupidness and self-importance that it took to make that comment.

Here we have ONE stupid white guy out of 220 MILLION white people, and he presumes to stereotype us all and speak for the entire white population.

All I can say is his level of stupidity is quite impressive.

BUT HE IS NOWHERE, NOWHERE NEAR THE LEVEL OF STUPIDITY DEMONSTRATED BY THESE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY & CULTURE PEOPLE!!!

Do these people working there have ANY qualifications?

Seriously.

Actually, I’m sure they all have very impressive educational resumes…, but what does that tell you about our institutions of “higher” learning?

amuseum 11

“On Thursday, York noted that the DC museum, one of the most successful in the Smithsonian system (at least with all of the liberal tools), gets $33 million in federal funding (I’m paying for this!) and has been supported by ‘the Lilly Endowment, the Oprah Winfrey Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, American Express, Bank of America, 3M, Boeing, Michael Jordan, Kaiser Permanente, the Rockefeller Foundation, Target, UnitedHealth, Walmart, and many more.’”

You can’t get much more politically correct than donating tons of money to The National Museum of African American History & Culture.

Just sayin’.

And, how exactly do they measure being “successful?”

By the amount of money they manage to bring in, I assume.

It wouldn’t have anything to do with the quality of their exhibits or anything like that.

Marina Watts for Newsweek [sometimes referred to as “Weaknews”] added, “The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture recently unveiled guidelines for talking about race.”

How nice of you all to assume that responsibility!

And what an invaluable set of guidelines they are!

“A graphic displayed in the guidelines, entitled ‘Aspects and Assumptions of Whiteness in the United States,’ declares that rational thinking and hard work, among others, are white values.”

“In the section, Smithsonian declares that ‘objective, rational, linear thinking,’ ‘quantitative emphasis,’ ‘hard work before play,’ and various other values are aspects and assumptions of whiteness.”

I’m just trying to imagine the collection of racist idiots, sitting in a conference room somewhere inside the esteemed Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, kicking around these “assumptions of whiteness.”

“They referred to the website’s page titled ‘Whiteness’ when asked for additional comment. The graphic was later removed from the page.”

I guess “taking responsibility” isn’t a quality that we should attribute to these representatives of African American culture either.

‘“White dominant culture, or whiteness, refers to the ways white people and their traditions, attitudes, and ways of life have been normalized over time and are now considered standard practices in the United States’ the introduction to the section reads. ‘And since white people still hold most of the institutional power in America, we have all internalized some aspects of white culture— including people of color.’”

“Another section says that white values include ‘steak and potatoes: bland is best’ and that white people have ‘no tolerance for deviation from a ‘single god’ concept.’”

“Other subsections deal with ‘family structure,’ ‘rugged individualism,’ ‘Protestant work ethic’ and ‘aesthetics [Concerned with the nature and appreciation of beauty, especially in art.].’”

“The ‘White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack’ section says that white people do not need to worry about certain things, such as doing things alone without being followed or harassed, along with feeling that their race is properly represented.

‘“Thinking about race is very different for nonwhite persons living in America,’ the Smithsonian site continues. ‘People of color must always consider their racial identity, whatever the situation, due to the systemic and interpersonal racism that still exists.’”

“On July 15, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture clarified their portal’s intentions and how readers should approach the information. ‘At a time when the soul of our country is being tested, our Talking About Race portal will help individuals and communities foster constructive conversations and much needed dialogue about one of our nation’s most challenging topics: Racism and its corrosive impact,’ the museum began a Twitter thread.”

I’m not sure about helping to “foster constructive conversations,” but I do know you’ve given us an example “racism and it’s corrosive impact.”

‘“America is once again facing the challenge of race, a challenge that needs all of our understanding and commitment,’ it continued. ‘Our portal was designed to help individuals, families, and communities talk about racism, racial identity and how forces shape every aspect of our society.’”

In this regard, The National Museum of African American History & Culture has failed miserably.

Spencer Crew is serving as the Interim Director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC). He is also the Clarence J. Robinson Professor of American, African American and Public History at George Mason University.

As the Interim Director, he has some level of responsibility here.

Whoever is responsible should be relieved of their duties at the museum.

The museum should also be issuing a formal apology.

Who’s paying to destroy America?

Lara Logan, of Fox News, says, and I also believe, that, “Paid professional anarchists are turning peaceful protests into riots.”

She believes these anti-America elements and agitators are hijacking protesters and groups, who are supposedly functioning in the name of social justice, and using them instead to carry out their Marxist agendas.

adestroy 14

They are going by the same playbook, and using the same tactics, that our government agencies and groups employ when trying to cause unrest and regime change in other foreign countries, according to Logan, who has discussed this with those very people.

The term “color revolution” is the term that has been used, in the last couple of years, to describe these techniques that are used to overthrow a government.

adestroy 4

Logan also points to graffiti she has seen recently, “ACAB,” which she has also seen in other countries.  “ACAB” stands for “all cops are bastards.”  And they mean “all cops.”  White cops, Black cops, Hispanic cops, Asian cops…, all cops, regardless of race.

adestroy 1

adestroy 2

adestroy 3

It’s not about racial injustice for these Marxists…, it’s about creating anarchy in our country and destroying America.

These riots are not just protesters venting their frustration.

Again…, these riots are being instigated by paid professionals.

The real question we should be asking is, “Who’s paying?”

Who’s paying for this destruction of America?

The really sad part about this is I believe the answer is already known.

How could “we” not at this point?

adestroy 5

adestroy 6

adestroy 13

adestroy 7

And if “we” know, why aren’t “we” holding these people accountable?

Is it for the same reason “we” don’t seem to hold any of these upper level democrats/liberals, and deep state vermin, accountable for their actions?

I guess that tells us that the democrat’s/liberal’s side, and the anti-America agitator’s side, and the people financing this anti-America activity side, ARE ONE IN THE SAME SIDE!

adestroy 10

IT’S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO STAND UP AND PICK A SIDE IN THIS FIGHT!

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA SURVIVE AS A BEACON OF FREEDOM IN THIS WORLD, OR YOU DON’T.

EITHER YOU WANT A GOVERNMENT “BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE,” OR YOU WANT TO END UP LIVING UNDER AN OPPRESSIVE COMMUNIST REGIME.  (NOTE: THERE ISN’T ANY OTHER KIND OF COMMUNIST REGIME.)

The words of Abraham Lincoln, to honor the soldiers that sacrificed their lives in order “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” were spoken at Gettysburg, but these words apply as well to the countless soldiers that died for the cause of democracy in the following 150 years.

adestroy 11

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA, AS WE KNOW IT, PERISH FROM THE EARTH, OR YOU DON’T.

PICK A SIDE.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND HERE.

The New York Times is liberal? 

Yessiree, Bob!

The New York Times is as liberal as the day is long…, and then some.

But it’s not just that.

The real offense of The New York Times is that they’re intentionally deceitful, intentionally disingenuous, and intentionally propagandistic.

Those are their real “crimes.”

abari 4

Being just a “good old liberal” these days is now a position not to be tolerated by the radical left.

If you’re not a self-proclaimed, full-fledged. socialist/communist/fascist, you better stand back and stand down.

Oliver Darcy of CNN Business writes, “Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for ‘illiberal environment.’”

abari 3

First of all, wouldn’t a “controversial” opinion writer be a good thing?

That is, unless they’re only tolerated as long as their opinion matches the opinion dictated by the New York Times.

“New York (CNN) Bari Weiss, a controversial opinion writer for The New York Times, resigned from the newspaper on Monday, blasting the institution on her way out in a scathing letter explaining why she chose to leave her job.”

abari 1

“In the resignation letter Weiss posted online Tuesday, the self-described ‘politically homeless’ writer criticized The Times for fostering what she called an ‘illiberal environment’ that she said was ‘especially heartbreaking.’”

FL: Bari Weiss in Conversation with Alana Newhouse during the Mi

‘“Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times,’ Weiss wrote. ‘But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.’”

The whole process was good for Bari, however, until the process swept over her, and swept by her, and is now proceeding to bite her in her own backside.

“Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions,’ Weiss added.”

Bite your tongue, you heretical sea hag!

The last thing the radical left needs is people drawing their own conclusions!

“News of Weiss’ departure was first reported by ‘Vice’ and confirmed by The Times.  Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’ acting editorial page editor, thanked Weiss in a statement for her ‘many contributions.’”

Her biggest and best contribution being her latest decision to get out of the way of their Marxist propaganda mission.

‘“I’m personally committed to ensuring that The Times continues to publish voices, experiences and viewpoints from across the political spectrum in the Opinion report,’ Kingsbury said.”

abari 6

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

abari 7

“Weiss generated controversy for her criticism of aspects of progressive culture, particularly with regards to free speech.”

We mustn’t have any of that!  Free speech, that is!

“Last week, she was one of the dozens of writers who signed an open letter published in Harper’s Magazine that spoke out against so-called cancel culture.”

How dare she!

“Weiss faced criticism in June when the newspaper faced backlash over the publication of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, which argued for sending in military troops to U.S. cities to quash unrest that had broken out in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.  In a series of tweets, Weiss tweeted that there was a ‘civil war’ that has been ‘raging’ inside The Times between the ‘wokes’ and older ‘liberals.’ The tweets drew public backlash from some of Weiss’ own colleagues.”

“Weiss said in her resignation letter that she was subject to ‘constant bullying’ by her colleagues at The Times who disagreed with her views. She wrote that colleagues have called her a Nazi and racist and that she was ‘demeaned on company-wide Slack channels.’”

abari 11

“Slack” software is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.  A “Slack” workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together.

‘“There, some coworkers insisted I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name,’ Weiss wrote. ‘Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action.  They never are.’”

abari 10

Is it just me?

Doesn’t anyone else see the fascist nature of these people?

It can’t be just me, right?

You do see it too, don’t you?

“Eileen Murphy, a spokesperson for The Times, did not respond to the specifics of Weiss’ resignation letter.”

Of course not.

“But Murphy said, ‘We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.’”

Nice statement, Eileen.  Too bad it isn’t true.

abari 8

abari 5

Brian Flood of Fox News adds, ‘“What this journalist has done is not just to indict, but convict The New York Times of outright censorship,’ Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told Fox News. ‘If it doesn’t send shockwaves through the world of journalism, it’s because the world of journalism no longer has ethics.”’

BINGO!

“Weiss published the resignation letter she sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website, saying, ‘Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.’”

And you not even a true centrist, Ms. Weiss. You may be a centrist, in a liberal sense, but not a true centrist.

A true “centrist,” these days, is defined as a person who isn’t smart enough to stand up for America, or just too lazy to help destroy her.

“DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that Weiss’ letter ‘provides yet another window to the mindset of journalistic ideology and advocacy’ at The Times.”

“While some were shocked by Weiss’ scathing letter, Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson feels anyone paying attention to ‘the Gray Lady’ [The New York Times] should have known the paper has a lefty agenda.”

“The Gray Lady” has a pimp these days…, and she’s a hot mess.

‘“Liberalism at the NY Times is illiberal and intolerant.  Water also is wet. Bari Weiss confirms what conservatives already knew, but liberals like Weiss previously refused to see,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘The vicious social justice warfare culture has moved from campus to newsrooms, and there is no place for old-fashioned liberals like Weiss.’”

Hmmm.  Sucks to be an “old fashioned liberal” these days, I guess.

Just to put The Times’ liberalism into perspective, The New York Times has not endorsed a republican for president since 1956!

That’s not once in the last 64 years!

That’s not once in the last 16 presidential elections!

That last endorsement in 1956 was for the incumbent, then President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

That includes endorsing Walter Mondale over President Ronald Reagan in 1984.  An election that Ronald Reagan won with 58.8% of the popular vote, while winning 49 of the 50 states, the only holdout being Mondale’s home state of Minnesota, and the District of Columbia, of course.

Trump is the big winner in this week’s primaries!

Yes…, President Trump just keeps on winning, while the democrats and the lamestream media come out the losers…, again.

acandidates 5

According to Doug Schoen, for Fox News, “Trump is big winner and Sessions is the big loser in Tuesday primaries, while Dems remain divided.”

He also reports that, “The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

“There are two key takeaways from the outcome of Tuesday’s primaries in Alabama, Maine and Texas.”

“First, the big winner of the night was President Trump.  Several Trump-backed candidates defeated their opponents and unquestionably benefited significantly from The President’s support. The most notable of these was former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, who defeated former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions for the GOP nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. Tuberville will face Democratic Sen. Doug Jones, considered a highly vulnerable incumbent.”

acandidates 6

“Second, Democratic primary results show the party is deeply divided, complicating the Democrats’ path to winning majority control of the Senate and defeating Trump in the November election.”

“Alabama was the biggest race Tuesday and of special interest to [President] Trump. The President forced out Sessions as attorney general after Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election – a decision Sessions said he was required to make because he had been involved in the Trump campaign. Trump never forgave Sessions for the recusal and considered it a betrayal.”

acandidates 7

acandidates 8

acandidates 9

“In his bid to regain the Senate seat he resigned to become Trump’s attorney general, Sessions faced fierce opposition from The President, who repeatedly criticized him with harsh insults and actively supported Tuberville. Trump’s endorsement clearly carried more weight with voters than Sessions’ endorsements from prominent Republicans and his former Republican Senate colleagues, including Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala.”

So, who are these other “prominent republicans who went out of their way to buck President Trump and endorse Jeff Sessions?

Ann Coulter

acandidates 10

Michelle Malkin

And republican senators:

Jim Inhoffe (OK)

Pat Roberts (KS)

Mike Enzi (WY)

Mike Crapo (ID)

John Barrasso (WY)

Roy Blunt (MO)

John Boozman (AR)

Ron Johnson (WI)

Deb Fischer (NE)

Michelle Malkin…, you have broken my heart!  Jeff “the backstabber” Sessions?!  Really?  What could you have possibly been thinking?  I’m going to have to re-evaluate our relationship.

acandidates 11

And my own senator, Ron Johnson!  Why would you endorse Jeff “the mole” Sessions?!

Very disappointing.

acandidates 12

“Meanwhile, in Texas, former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who was endorsed by [President] Trump, won his primary for a U.S. House seat, beating out Josh Winegarner. Winegarner was endorsed by the outgoing Republican Rep. Mac Thornberry.”

acandidates 13

“In many ways, the weight of [President] Trump’s endorsements in Alabama and Texas signals that The President’s current chances for reelection may be stronger than national polls indicate.”

Recollecting the polls and their accuracy during the 2016 presidential election, I would say this is most definitely the case.

acandidates 3

acandidates 4

A day or so before the primaries, I can recall the media touting that the Sessions-Tuberville race was a virtual toss-up.

Tuberville crushed Sessions, 60.7% to 39.3%.

Some kind of “toss-up,” huh?

“In several U.S. House and Senate Democratic primaries held in June, progressive challengers either defeated or came close to nearly defeating their well-funded establishment opponents.”

“Likewise, the division between the progressive and moderate factions of the party was manifest in Tuesday’s primaries.”

“Given the clear progressive insurgency within the Democratic Party across the country, there will also likely be greater pressure on the party to embrace left-leaning policies, such as defunding the police, which are unpopular with the general electorate.”

You mean most people don’t want to operate under jungle rules?

You mean most people believe that criminals should be arrested?

You mean that most people believe that other people who can’t behave in a civilized manner should be dealt with accordingly?

If that’s what you mean, well then maybe you do agree with me that these favorable polls for Sleepy Joe are seriously flawed.

It’s hard to believe the democrats believe most people in the country want the Chicago, the L.A., or the New York lifestyle of burning, looting, shooting, killing and just general lawlessness.

“Doing so could cost the Democrats the presidency, the Senate, and even their current House majority.”

We can only hope!

The only mention of these primary events by CNN is a whiney little article about Sessions and how he was mistreated by The President, and how he paid the price for being associated with President Trump somehow, even though The President firmly backed his opponent in the primary.

Only the “logic” of CNN can explain that “expert” analysis.

WINNING!

Those democrats sure do love them some China!

Well, I suppose…, China is a communist country after all.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “House Dem praises China’s ‘discipline’ on coronavirus, and says Trump brings US into ‘parallel universe.’”

‘“They’re [China is] faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she said.”

achina 6

“Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif. [a Nancy Pelosi wannabe], ripped the federal government’s response to the coronavirus, comparing it unfavorably to the way China handled the disease.”

achina 1

Is there no end to these brain-dead representatives from California?

It seems like we just continue to hear this “stupidness” from one after the other.

It’s a virtual parade of liberal fools trying to outdo each other!

‘“You look at China with so much more in terms of population … and they’re faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she told MSNBC [MSDNC] on Monday.”

Oh yes, Jackie…, their discipline is just soooo impressive!

I didn’t hear you mention how China reacted very quickly…, restricting flights within their own country, in and out of Wuhan, while allowing international flights to spread their virus around the rest of the world.

Wasn’t that an awesome way of handling the disease, Ms. Speier?

The fact that you are giving China ANY kind of praise in this matter is utterly disgusting.

In my opinion, the rest of the world should isolate China, and hold them accountable, make them pay, and pay dearly, for all of the lives lost and hardship they inflicted on the rest of the world.

But you wouldn’t have any interest in that would you, Ms. Speier?

“She called out President Trump, accusing him of spreading false information and failing to provide leadership for the states.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd.  When’s the last time you heard a democrat congressperson from California accusing President Trump of something?

I believe it only occurs on a daily basis.

‘“Unfortunately, the president brings us into this parallel universe, where he talks about hydroxychloroquine as if that’s going to be a solution, and then we find out that can actually hurt people and create heart problems,’ she said.”

Thank you for your input “Dr.” Speier…, albeit misleading and disingenuous.

And talk about living in a “parallel universe!”

‘“He said anyone can get a test that wants a test. That of course isn’t the case – and he’s never really invoked the Defense Production Act. So, we are scraping for the testing agents that we need. So, there’s a total lack of leadership on the federal level. So you have states doing very different things. And that’s why we are not being able to rein in this virus.’”

So, so…, so, so, so.

The facts are, Ms. Speier, that we lead the world in testing, by a wide margin.  No one is even close…, not even your beloved China.

And he hasn’t really invoked the Defense Production Act because he didn’t have to!

Manufacturers from across the country stepped up and did what was needed to be done at the request of The President, in cooperation, as opposed to by order.

And, yes, states are doing different things, because different states are in different situations, regarding the Chinese virus.

“Her comments came amid a broader debate about the way U.S. media outlets covered China’s response. The issue garnered renewed attention after reports surfaced indicating that China had suppressed information about the pandemic’s impact on the country.”

Really?!

China “suppressed information?”

No way!

achina 10

achina 12

Who’da thunk it?

“Some outlets have favorably compared China’s response to that of the U.S., while other reports have uncritically repeated China’s claim that it saw no new coronavirus deaths in April.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”

achina 5

“Writing in the Washington Examiner last week, T. Beckett Adams accused media outlets of spreading ‘Chinese communist propaganda.’”

Ya think?

There’s no end to the collection of Chinese “tools” and useful idiots out there to help China put themselves in the best light.

“Adams highlighted a Foreign Policy report alleging that China’s government directed media outlets not to publish negative information about its response to the pandemic.”

“In the Foreign Policy article, reporter Tracy Wen Liu said she was ‘repeatedly shut down by authorities’ when she tried reporting on the virus. She added ‘that [t]he government sent dozens of journalists to Wuhan to shape the narrative around the virus.’”

That’s what communist regimes, and the American fake news media, do.  They “shape” their liberal narrative rather than report the facts.

“Liu said Beijing’s suppression included mass removals of COVID-19 patients’ online pleas for help.”

“Similarly, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, has accused the Chinese government of knowing about the coronavirus long before it acknowledged its existence to the world.”

What is Representative Speier’s opinion about that?

Imagine yourself waiting for a very long time while only hearing the sound of crickets in the background.

That’s the democrat’s, and the fake news media’s, response to that accusation.

And who is this Congresswoman Jackie Speier?

We haven’t really heard much from her up until now, but she does have an interesting past.

It turns out she was one of the people shot and left for dead at the site of the “Jonestown Massacre,” over 40 years ago.

On Nov. 18, 1978, she was shot five times on a remote airstrip in Guyana, South America.  Her boss, Rep. Leo J. Ryan and four others lay dead nearby, killed by gunfire as they tried to escape Jonestown, the commune built by cult leader Jim Jones.

achina 3

She didn’t suffer any brain damage as a result of the shooting, did she?

That would help explain things.

She accompanied Ryan and 23 other people to Guyana, on the northeastern coast of South America, attempting to visit Jim Jones and nearly 1,000 followers he’d amassed.

By the end of the trip, Ryan was dead, the first and only congressman to be assassinated in office, along with three journalists and one cult defector. Speier and nine others had been shot and left for dead at a remote air strip.  They waited 22 hours there for help to arrive.

Immediately following the shootings, Jones and more than 900 of his followers died from self-inflicted cyanide poisoning in what was seen as a mass suicide at the time, but is now widely considered a mass murder.

Speier has occupied Ryan’s former seat in Congress since 2008.

achina 2

Speier had a long recovery ahead.  Shot five times, she spent two months in the hospital and had 10 surgeries.

Speier is now a member of the nefarious House Intelligence Committee…, led by her treasonous congressional cohort, Adam Schiff.

“Your words cut me deeper than a knife.” – Priyanshi Singh   

It’s true that words can “cut” us as sure as a knife can…, but only if we allow them to.

And in this case, it’s my belief that some people are self-inflicting their “wounds” where there need not be any.

Korin Miller, for Yahoo, reports that, “The growing Black Lives Matter movement has caused many people to rethink how they approach several areas of life, seeping into company policies, police reform, entertainment and education, among other things. Now many of the words and phrases that we regularly use are getting revisited in an effort for linguistic equity.”

“Linguistic equity…,” interesting.

awords 11

I suppose, in a world where words and thoughts are more important, and dangerous, than actual actions, “linguistic equity” is a real issue.

And again…, please, please, please, please, please understand that “The Black Lives Matter movement” is not really worried about black lives.  The Black Lives Matter organization is only concerned with destroying America as we know it, and implementing their Marxist/communist ideals.

All of this “background noise” is being generated by the useful idiots who think the Black Lives Matter organization really cares what they’re offended by.

“Several words that are a common part of the English language are getting reassessed for having racist undertones or origins.”

“Reassessed” by who?

Is there some “panel” of people who determine what is officially racist and what is not?

awords 5

“Among some of the more explicit racist terms are ‘master bedroom,’ which can evoke the imagery of master-slave relations on plantations.”

Oh…, “it can evoke the imagery.”

How dare they evoke that kind of imagery!”

awords 20

AWORDS 11

“Tech engineers have used the words ‘master’ and ‘slave’ to describe software and hardware in which one process controls another, and a ‘blacklist’ is a term that refers to a collection of people who are excluded.”

‘“The English language is filled with these references, and many people don’t even think twice about where they came from or what they mean,’ Kristen Syrett, presidential term chair in experimental linguistics at Rutgers University, tells Yahoo Life. ‘But what happens is that the language we speak, having had those influences in it, implicitly influences the way we think about people,’ she says.”

awords 21

I beg to differ, Professor Syrett. People will only be offended by these benign references in language if they are actively looking to be offended by terms that don’t intend to offend anyone.

And you are the “chair” in “experimental linguistics?”

I hope you don’t mind me asking, “What in the hell is experimental linguistics?”

awords 16

And the department is big enough that it needs a chairperson?

Just sayin’.

“The Houston Association of Realtors announced in late June that it would be replacing the term ‘master bedroom’ with ‘primary bedroom’ in its listings.”

Bravo!  Bravisimo, Houston Association of Realtors!

What a bold and life-changing step!

“The Court of Master Sommeliers, a prestigious organization that grants the coveted title of ‘master sommelier’ to select wine experts, announced in a letter in late June that it would stop using the term ‘Master’ before a sommelier’s last name. ‘Part of what brought us all to the hospitality industry and to the Court of Master Sommeliers is a deeply ingrained desire to serve others. That desire we know was a crucial guiding light on our journey to becoming Master Sommeliers,’ the letter reads. ‘Let us use that light now to do our part to effect the change we know is possible and necessary.’”

awords 8

Really?

Are these people really serious?

“A leader on Twitter’s engineering team shared on the platform that the company would be dropping the use of the terms ‘master,’ ‘slave’ and ‘blacklist’ from its code, noting that ‘words matter.’”

I’m not sure where these words would appear in “its [Twitter’s] code,” but, whatever.

“How did these words become such a part of our culture, anyway?”

“This doesn’t just happen around subjects of race. Patriarchy, gender and other factors of everyday life also seep into language, Syrett says. ‘We take what’s familiar to us — our culture, our society and our immediate environment — and that finds its way into language,’ she says.”

Ohhhhh reeeeeally???!!!

And rightly so!

I can see now why you’re a professor in this area.

‘“It’s a very natural thing that happens, and we might not even think of it as being connected to relationships with people, but it infiltrates our language in subtle ways.’”

‘“Over time, people forget the origins of the word or maybe never even realized they existed in the first place,’ Syrett says.”

How is it possible to be offended by these words, then…, if these people never even realized the existence of the word’s origins…, unless they are mistakenly superimposing meaning onto words that have no intentions of offending anyone.

“These words are allowed to continue to exist because they indicate a larger societal problem,’ Gabriel Torres Colon, a cultural anthropologist with research and teaching interests in race, politics, sports and intellectual history at Vanderbilt University, tells Yahoo Life. ‘The most important insight in the study of language and racism is that in order for racism to be embedded in language, linguistic terms need not be explicitly racist,’ he says. ‘This is an important point of departure because we need to be aware that when we debate the need to remove racist phrases from everyday language use, we are not necessarily addressing the entire problem of how racism is embedded in language.’”

awords 22

Thank you, Professor Colon.

I feel I am stupider now for having read that.

awords 19

“Explicitly racist words ‘always exist’ alongside ‘implicit linguistic racism,’ Torres Colon says. For example, he points out that there is a lot of attention right now on the term ‘master bedroom,’ but not as much on terms like ‘plantation shutters’ and ‘plantation’— and ‘colonial’-style homes, which he says are ‘equally as problematic.’”

No, Professor Colon, the only thing that’s “problematic” is your hyper-racial sensitivity that is seeing “racial ghosts” where there aren’t any.

“While words matter, Torres Colon says that actions carry an even greater impact.”

This guy is brilliant!

Brilliant, I tell you!

awords 17

‘“What is crystal clear is that there is no reason to believe that changing the way we speak will likely lead to measurable social change,’ he says.”

So, after all of this whining and crying, he’s now admitting that none of this will probably make any difference, socially, one way or another?

awords 18

It’s just such a typical, idiotic, liberal activist, social endeavor.

These professorial “experts” should maybe take a look in the mirror.

How about some potentially offensive terms that exist in their own world of education?

Like, Master’s degree.

Bachelor’s degree.

School Master.

Freshman, sophomore, junior, senior?  Why not just first year, second year, etc.?

Gender exclusive and discriminative fraternities and sororities.

Well…, if you’re going to go there, let’s go there.

 

From Merriam-Webster.com, let’s look at all of the possible definitions associated with the word “master.”

Master as a noun:

1a: (1): a male teacher

(2): a person holding an academic degree higher than a bachelor’s but lower than a doctor’s

also : the degree itself

b: often capitalized : a revered religious leader

c: a worker or artisan qualified to teach apprentices

d: (1): an artist, performer, or player of consummate skill

(2): a great figure of the past (as in science or art) whose work serves as a model or ideal

2a: one having authority over another : RULER, GOVERNOR

This decisive battle left him master of Europe.

b: one that conquers or masters : VICTOR, SUPERIOR

In the new challenger the champion found his master.

c: a person licensed to command a merchant ship

d: a person who is in control of something (such as a situation)

She wanted to be the master of her own fate.

e: an owner especially of an animal

They looked around for the dog’s master.

f: in historical contexts : the owner of a slave

g: an employer especially of a servant

h: (1)dialect : HUSBAND

(2): the male head of a household

3a(1)archaic : MR.

(2): a youth or boy too young to be called mister —used as a title

5a: a master mechanism 1) or device

b: an original from which copies can be made

especially : a master recording (such as a magnetic tape)

 

Master as an adjective:

: being or relating to a master: such as

c: PRINCIPAL, PREDOMINANT

d: SUPERLATIVE —often used in combination

a master-liar

e: being a device or mechanism that controls the operation of another mechanism or that establishes a standard (such as a dimension or weight)

f: being or relating to a master from which duplicates are made

 

Master as a verb:

1: to become master of: OVERCOME

2a: to become skilled or proficient in the use of

master a foreign language

b: to gain a thorough understanding of

Had mastered every aspect of publishing.

3: to produce a master recording of (something, such as a musical rendition)

 

There are quite a few ways to take this word, aren’t there?

But not for these people.

For these racial “guard dogs,” focused on race and “racism” around the clock, “master” can only mean the “master” of a slave.

awords 23

awords 8

You see, it doesn’t matter what anyone’s intentions are.  The only thing that matters is their perception.

awords 10

What if some people told you they were offended by the term “Black Lives Matter?”

I mean, who’s level of being offended trumps anyone else’s?

Where does it end?

awords 6

In a truly free country, you can choose to use, or not use, whatever words you want…, but you should not be free to impose your choices on anyone else.

“Tis but thy name that is my enemy.” – Shakespeare

Yes…, your name, and your picture too!

According to Janine Puhak of Fox News, “Aunt Jemima is being rebranded with a new name and image, parent company Quaker Oats has announced, acknowledging that the face of the brand was ‘based on a racial stereotype.’”

“It was announced on Wednesday morning that the line of pancake mix, syrup, and other breakfast foods will be debut a new look as part of Quaker’s push to ‘to make progress toward racial equality.’”

‘“We recognize Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,’ said Kristin Kroepfl, vice president and chief marketing officer of Quaker Foods North America, in a statement shared with Fox News. ‘As we work to make progress toward racial equality through several initiatives, we also must take a hard look at our portfolio of brands and ensure they reflect our values and meet our consumers’ expectations.’”

aauntj 5

aauntj 4

“Kroepfl added that while the parent company has tried to ‘update’ the Aunt Jemima brand through the years to be ‘appropriate and respectful,’ the time has come to scrap the current product in favor of a complete makeover.”

aauntj 6

‘“We acknowledge the brand has not progressed enough to appropriately reflect the confidence, warmth and dignity that we would like it to stand for today,’ Kroepfl stressed. ‘We are starting by removing the image and changing the name. We will continue the conversation by gathering diverse perspectives from both our organization and the Black community to further evolve the brand and make it one everyone can be proud to have in their pantry.’”

So, you want to “appropriately reflect the Black community?”

Maybe the new “Aunt Jemima” should be a rioter with a mask on?

Maybe on the back of the box, you could include instructions for making Molotov cocktails?!

“The 130-year-old breakfast brand’s logo features a black woman named Aunt Jemima.  The logo has evolved over time, with Quaker dropping Aunt Jemima’s kerchief in recent years, per NBC News.”

St. Joseph Gazette editor Chris L. Rutt and his friend Charles G. Underwood developed the pancake mix 1888 and later appropriated the “Aunt Jemima” name and image from lithographed posters seen at a vaudeville house, there, in St. Joseph, Missouri.

The inspiration for “Aunt Jemima” was Billy Kersands’ American-style minstrelsy/vaudeville song “Old Aunt Jemima”, written in 1875. The “Aunt Jemima” character was prominent in minstrel shows in the late 19th century.

“Aunt Jemima” is based on the common stereotype of the “mammy” character who was hired to do the cooking and housework, back in the day.

aauntj 7

The Quaker Oats Company purchased the Aunt Jemima Mills Company in 1926, and formally registered the Aunt Jemima trademark in April 1937.  It remains one of the longest continually running logos and trademarks in the history of American advertising…, at least up until now.

“Following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, however, social media critics denounced Aunt Jemima’s problematic history and demanded that Quaker make a change.”

“Social media critics?”

That’s liberal code for racial activists and propagandists.

“It was announced on June 17 that the line of pancake mix, syrup, and other breakfast foods will be debut a new look as part of Quaker’s push to ‘to make progress toward racial equality.’”

“The new packaging will be unveiled in fall 2020, with the product line’s new name revealed at a later date.”

Ooooh. I can’t wait!

Won’t it be great that the Black community will finally experience racial equality as a result of ditching Aunt Jemima?

“Through the next five years, Quaker said, the food conglomerate will donate at least $5 million to ‘to create meaningful, ongoing support and engagement in the Black community.’”

Translation:  Quaker will be donating $5 million to the democrat party…, for which none of the money will benefit the Black community directly.

“Earlier this year, Land O’ Lakes removed the ‘racist’ image of a Native American woman from its packaging, a logo featured on the butter brand’s label for nearly 100 years.”

aauntj 24

Again…, pathetic.  There was nothing “racist” about the image.

Let’s see…, who’s next?

The Lucky Charms’ leprechaun?

Colonel Sanders (an obvious plantation owner)?

Eskimo Pies?

aauntj 19

And what about sports team names?

The Washington Redskins?  This one should go.  Redskins?  Really?  And this is our nation’s capitols’ team?

aauntj 20

It doesn’t seem to bother these black guys.

The Cleveland Indians?  This one should go as well.

aauntj 21

The Atlanta Braves?  Debatable,

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish?  The Irish don’t seem to mind, sooo?

The Kansas City Chiefs?

The Chicago Blackhawks?

The Cleveland Browns?  Would The Washington Whites be okay?

The Redskin’s ownership has said they are finally ready to change their name.

Keep your eyes on the rest.  After the Redskins, the others will probably start dropping like flies as well.

Alexandra Deabler of Fox News reports that, “Uncle Ben’s rice may be getting a new logo after Quaker Foods announced it would be changing the name and image on its Aunt Jemima brand in a bid to “make progress toward racial equality.”

aauntj 13

“Mars Inc., which owns Uncle Ben’s, told Fox News on Wednesday that it was looking into updating the rice brand’s image.”

‘“As a global brand, we know we have a responsibility to take a stand in helping to put an end to racial bias and injustices,’ a spokesperson for Mars, Inc., said in an emailed statement to Fox News. ‘As we listen to the voices of consumers, especially in the Black community, and to the voices of our Associates worldwide, we recognize that now is the right time to evolve the Uncle Ben’s brand, including its visual brand identity, which we will do.’”

“Mars, Inc., meanwhile, has previously expressed its support for the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Ohhh, they support the Black Lives Matter movement?

Perhaps they should change the name to Uncle Karl’s and use the image of Karl Marx on their products?!

Black Lives Matter (BLM) isn’t really concerned about black lives at all.  They are only concerned with destroying America and establishing communist rule.

Mars, Inc. are obviously a bunch of uninformed and misguided fools.

‘“Racism has no place in society,’ the company said. ‘We stand in solidarity with the Black community, our Associates and our partners in the fight for social justice.’”

So, they’re saying every other race are racists, except blacks?

‘“We know to make the systemic change needed, it’s going to take a collective effort from all of us – individuals, communities and organizations of all sizes around the world.’”

FYI, Mars, Inc., the rest of the world really has no interest in doing anything about social injustice or racial inequality.

Just sayin’.

aauntj 15

Hey…, was Uncle Ben married to Aunt Jemima?!

“Since 1946, Uncle Ben’s products have carried the image of an elderly African-American man dressed in a bow tie, said to have been a Chicago maître d’hôtel named Frank Brown. According to Mars, Uncle Ben was an African-American rice grower known for the quality of his rice. Gordon L. Harwell, an entrepreneur who had supplied rice to the armed forces in World War II, chose the name Uncle Ben’s as a means to expand his marketing efforts to the general public.”

How dare they!

Maybe everything should be called “Rainbow” whatever?

Although, there isn’t any white in a rainbow.

aauntj 23

But there isn’t any black or brown in a rainbow either.

aauntj 22

So, “rainbow” wouldn’t work.

Maybe we should just package stuff in a plain white box or bag with plain black lettering?

Well, maybe not…, you know, the whole white and black thing.

Argh!  So, what are we to do?

Maybe just put everything in clear bags or boxes without any writing!

That way we can see what’s inside, and we don’t need any advertising or writing on the package!

In the case of pancake mix, we would just have to guess what the powder is.

Isn’t the advancement of civilization great?!

Polls?  Who needs polls?

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “Stony Brook professor Helmut Norpoth says Trump has a 91% chance of winning in November.”

a2020 3

“Despite recent polls that identify Joe Biden as the heavy favorite in 2020, a political science professor is still standing by his prediction model that shows President Trump having a ‘91 percent’ chance of winning in November.”

Allow me to remind you of another poll that had a “heavy favorite!”

a2020 22

I think we have seen these polls are extremely flawed and propagandistic in nature.

a2020 11

‘“Mediaite’ [Mediaite is a digital news site that covers political news] reported on Wednesday that Stony Brook professor Helmut Norpoth is doubling down on his ‘Primary Model,’ which has correctly predicted five out of the past six elections since 1996 and every single election but two in the past 108 years.”

‘“The Primary Model gives Trump a 91 percent chance of winning in November,’ Norpoth said. ‘This model gets it right for 25 of the 27 elections since 1912, when primaries were introduced.’”

“As Mediaite noted, the two elections the model failed to predict were the 1960 election of John F. Kennedy and the 2000 [hanging chad] election of George W. Bush.”

“Norpoth’s model examines the results of presidential primaries as the strongest indicator as to the outcome in the general election, not the polls that dominate the political discussion. According to Norpoth, Biden is in a much weaker position than Trump because of his poor showing in the first two primary races.”

“Before making the stunning comeback in the South Carolina primary and carrying the following races, Biden came in fourth place in Iowa with just 15.8 percent of the vote and came in fifth place in New Hampshire with just 8.4 percent.”

“Norpoth stressed that ‘enthusiasm is key.’”

a2020 5

a2020 12

And I think we all know where the enthusiasm lies.

a2020 9

a2020 10

“Norpoth’s model, which correctly predicted Trump’s victory roughly nine months before the 2016 election, suggests that the president will win by even a wider margin in the electoral college with 362 electoral votes versus the 304 he earned against Hillary Clinton. Mediaite pointed out such a victory would nearly match Barack Obama’s 2008 election, when he earned 365 electoral votes.”

“The Stony Brook professor appeared on ‘The Ingraham Angle’ back in May making the same prediction.”

“While the ‘Primary Model’ hands Trump his reelection, national polls suggest Biden will win handily in November. The Real Clear Politics average shows the former VP besting the sitting president by 8.7 points. In the latest Fox News poll, Biden has a 12 point lead over Trump.”

… feel that it’s okay to mercilessly attack, investigate, and harass our duly elected president.

… feel that it’s okay for our schools and colleges to operate as indoctrination centers for the liberals and their socialist/fascist/communist ideals.

… feel it’s okay for our country to have open borders, allowing people to stroll into our country whenever they want, while immediately becoming eligible for any and all benefits.

… feel our country and our society is evil at its core and needs to be “transformed” into some other vague type of socialist/fascist/communist hybrid type of government.

… want our tax cuts rescinded, and our taxes raised.

… want business tax cuts rescinded, and businesses forced out of our country again.

… want to allow climate change scientists to dictate our economy and our way of life.

… want the price of gas to go up, and want us to become dependent on Middle Eastern oil again.

… want to hand over all of our guns and do away with our 2nd amendment rights.

… want to move away from a free market economic system to a socialistic system.

… want our jobs to head back overseas.

… want our manufacturing companies to disappear…, again.

… want government to control every aspect of our lives.

And that’s just the start of what I refuse to believe the majority of the people in this country support.

Just sayin’.

It’s Trump’s fault!

Yes, my friends…, if anything, and I mean if ANYTHING happens that isn’t good, it’s President Trump’s fault…, and NOTHING he does is allowed to even be considered good.

I’m really getting bored with this liberal blame game that seems to be on a never-ending loop.

Can we just assume that President Trump is to blame for everything from now on so you liberals can just shut up?

I mean, your litany of lame excuses and shifting of all of the blame from yourselves onto President Trump is so disingenuous, very tiresome, and quite sickening as well.

democrat congresspeople, and, of course, the liberal propaganda media, blaming President Trump for all of their, and all of the world’s problems.

But remember, President Trump has only been in politics the last 3½ years.

So, racism wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Social justice wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Police brutality wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Crime rates, shootings and murders weren’t an issue in any of our big cities prior to 2017?

Criminal justice reforms weren’t an issue prior to 2017?

Economic opportunity in depressed areas of our country and our cities wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

In fact, these were all existing issues prior to 2017.

These have all been existing issues prior to 2017…, AND FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS!

The fact is, President Trump has done more to address these issues in the last 3½ years than had been done in the prior 50 years!

And I’m talking about actual positive actions…, not just lip service or promises.

You don’t believe me?

Let’s take a look at just a few of President Trump’s accomplishments.

 

Our economy, under President Trump’s direction, saw historic lows for African American unemployment and African American youth unemployment, as well as historic low unemployment rates for Latinos, Asians, and Women.

 

Nearly 8 million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps.  Indeed, the latest data from the Department of Agriculture shows that 7.7 million fewer Americans receive food stamps now than did when Trump entered the White House.

 

The poverty rate has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two decades, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

 

The First Step Act was promoted and signed into law by President Trump. This law shortens mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. It also eases a federal “three strikes” rule, which currently imposes a life sentence for three or more convictions, and issues a 25-year sentence instead. Most consequentially, it expands the “drug safety-valve,” which would give judges more discretion to deviate from mandatory minimums when sentencing for nonviolent drug offenses.

Beyond sentencing reform, the First Step Act includes provisions that will improve conditions for current prisoners and address several laws that increased racial disparities in the federal prison system.

“We’re all better off when former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens,” Trump said in remarks endorsing the bill. “And, thanks to our booming economy, they now have a chance at more opportunities than they’ve ever had before.”

 

Opportunity Zones were created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and signed into law by President Trump.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA,) known for creating Opportunity Zones, is often celebrated for its potential to move billions of dollars into low-income communities. However, there remains an open question as to whether this program will ultimately serve to add value, or extract values, from these communities.  Opportunity Zones (OZs) are defined as “economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment.” First conceived in April of 2018, OZ plans are now in place for communities in all 50 states this year.

 

President Trump signed a bill that will permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students.  “When I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. “A few months ago, funding for HBCUs was in jeopardy. But the White House and Congress came together and reached a historic agreement.”

 

H.R.1927: African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017.  This act recognizes the importance of the African American civil rights movement and those who made sacrifices for it. It authorizes the National Park Service to create a US Civil Rights Network, tying together relevant operations within the Service, that will be tasked with coordinating and facilitating projects to commemorate the history of that movement. The Network will operate for seven years, tending to relevant events and historical sites and developing and disseminating new educational materials on the issue.

 

H.R.1242: 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act.  This bill commemorates the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans in the English colonies in Virginia in 1619. It creates a 15-member commission, composed of government officials, members of civic societies, and historians, to be appointed within 120 days. The commission will plan, develop, and carry out activities recognizing and highlighting African-American history since that point in time, and it will be authorized to provide grants of up to $20,000 to support related activities at all levels.

 

H.R.267: Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act of 2017.  In 1992, the federal government recognized several sites associated with the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as a collective national historic site. This bill adds one building, the former headquarters of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference that King co-founded, and upgrades the collective site to national park status—the first such entity in Georgia.

 

Presidential Proclamation 115: To Take Certain Actions under the African Growth and Opportunity Act and for Other Purposes.  This proclamation most significantly reverses Obama-era decisions to deny the African nations of Gambia and Swaziland duty-free trade access to American markets under the act named in the proclamation’s title. That access is contingent on maintaining or improving political freedoms and human rights standards.

 

H.R.2989: Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act.  This bill recognizes Douglass’s exceptional rise from slavery to the forefront of the American civil rights movement, as well as his vital role in abolitionism, contributions to the Union in the Civil War, and service in national government. It affirms that all Americans would benefit from learning more about and following the examples laid out by Douglass. The act creates a commission to plan and carry out federal activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his 1818 birth.

 

And there has never been a bigger supporter of the safety of American citizens, law enforcement, and our first responders, in The White House, than President Trump.  The lawlessness we see in our large, liberal, cities is a result of opposition to President Trump’s policies, not because of them.

Regarding New York City, specifically, Julia Musto of Fox News reports that, “Dan Bongino blasts liberal mayors blaming COVID-19 and Trump for violence: ‘This is pathetic.’”

“Liberal mayors’ attempts to blame violence over the Fourth of July weekend on the coronavirus and the Trump administration is ‘grotesque and pathetic,’ former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said Tuesday.”

“In an interview on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Bongino specifically called out Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.”

“The Democrat-run cities both saw spikes in violent crime over the holiday weekend. According to the Chicago Police Department, there were 87 people shot and 17 killed from July 2 to July 5. There were at least 44 shooting incidents and 10 dead in New York City as the Big Apple saw its surge in violence continue.”

‘“I heard Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago also trying to pin this on [President] Donald Trump somehow. How was this Donald Trump? And again, it was racist, of course. Everything is racist. God forbid you call out the fact that young Black children are being shot in the head,’ he remarked.”

‘“It’s not President Trump that did this. It’s that guy in City Hall, Bill de Blasio — your Communist mayor who has failed you and — as I said on this program and others, repeatedly for years now — people will die because of the arguments going on over public safety,’ Bongino concluded. ‘And, tragically, I was correct.’”

So, after decades upon decades of inaction and ineffectiveness by the “do nothing” political establishment, democrats and republicans, we are now told that all of these problems are President Trump’s fault, and that all of these politicians who have overseen these problems for decades and decades now suddenly have all the answers.
