Home Depot Founder to Obama: ‘Go Off Into The Sunset’ and ‘Keep Your Mouth Shut!’

Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone has some stern advice for former president Barack Obama: “Ride off into the sunset” and “keep your mouth shut, OK?”

Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone has some stern advice for former president Barack Obama: "Ride off into the sunset" and "keep your mouth shut, OK?"

On top of being a successful businessman who has witnessed the power of economic prosperity to heal demographic divides, Ken Langone is a keen political observer who is often moved to speak his mind.

And he is fed up to the back teeth with Barack Obama and his politics of entitlement and division.

It comes as no surprise, considering the way he does business.

On any visit to one of Ken Langone’s stores you’ll meet a broadly diverse team of employees all working together for a common goal – servicing the customer. His employees know that the success of the store they work in translates to their success as a group – and individually.

Similarly, the success of other Home Depot stores gives customers the confidence to walk into any Home Depot store expecting the same great service.  That fuels store over store economic growth and increases opportunities for each employee even further.

Langone’s employees are examples of something that we’ve been saying here for a long time: Prosperity brings peace.

Alternatively, competition for scarce resources allows political opportunists to drive a wedge between different social and ethnic groups for their own purposes.

Just pay some heed to Obama’s recent comments, meant to be critical of President Trump, that chart the history of divisive political discourse in America.

“The past few decades the politics of division and resentment and paranoia have unfortunately found a home in the Republican party.”

Nice try Barry, but the politics of division has been the bulwark of Democrat electoral strategy for decades.  They have made it a central focus of every campaign in memory to identify and single out different demographic groups for victimhood and assigning them hyphenated American status.

And, whether Republicans went along for the ride, or sometimes adopted those policies as their own if can’t hide the fact that over those same past few decades American families have had to get by with declining household incomes.

Household income down – politics of division up.  Coincidence?

The most glaring, but by no means the only, example of the success of this strategy is manifested in the Black community and their overwhelming support they give to Democrats.

This support has endured even as their place at the bottom of the socio-economic scale has endured through one Democrat administration after another over fifty-plus years.

Keep people fighting for scarce resources and suggesting the conservative bogeyman will take even those meager crumbs from them has instilled fear and self-defeat in these people.

Democrats have repeated this across virtually every social and economic demographic.  Unfortunately, it’s a tactic that is unconscionably effective.

Prosperity denudes politicians of that power and tears down those walls.

Langone made this point while visiting with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto:

Cavuto: “Why don’t you think the president is getting more of the goodwill from this good economy — the good economy? Now there’s been a battle between [Trump] and President Obama; who takes the credit for this bull market — the longest in history? Who does?”

Langone: “Forget about it.  Obama ought to do what every great president did. Go off into the sunset. Be the mother of the groom. Wear beige and keep your mouth shut. OK?”

“What I’m saying is that, like it or not, Trump’s base is rock solid.  Donald Trump needs 15 percent of the voters to get re-elected in 2020. That 35 percent is rock solid. I would hope he would do things different than he did, but damn, give the guy credit. 

This, my friends, is what the great Awakening is all about – Americans of all colors, creeds and orientations coming together to Make America Great Again so that every child might fulfill their dreams and reach their potential in life.

President Trump is rather abruptly closing the door on America’s divisive past.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
