A Little Knowledge Is a Dangerous

 

 

Allow me to begin by explaining a few things about myself.  I am most politically incorrect.  I hold a few things as tenets of my American citizenship.

One:    This is and was intended to be a Christian nation. 

Two:    Muslims and the muslim religion are something to be feared and distrusted.

Three:  This country was founded on the principles of freedom and individual  responsibility.

Four:    An ignorant electorate is a very dangerous thing.

Now let’s take a look at those tenets in order

This country was founded and by Christians.  Yes they wrote into that marvelous document we know as our Constitution.  Yes they wrote into the first ten amendments, better known as the Bill of Rights, and into the very first of them these words: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …” but there is no way they intended that to be interpreted as the outlawing of governmentally sponsored and approved religious symbolism or practices on or near governmentally supported institutions. Thomas Jefferson ,our third president and author of the Declaration of Independence and founding father certainly knew of that amendment when he began holding church services in the White House after he was elected.  A tradition that lasted for fifty years..  Nor were they ignorant of them when they inscribed out money with “In GOD We Trust” and placing various references to God on many of our government buildings in Washington DC.  I am of the firm opinion that the Supreme Court was way out of bounds in declaring school prayer unconstitutional.

The Muslim religion has as one of their tenets that infidels that cannot be converted must be killed.  I cannot be converted.  I have reason to distrust and fear any and all Muslims.  AND I do.  This says nothing of the fact that the largest of the muslim sects- The Shiites - has formally declared a “jihad” against America which is tantamount to a declaration of war.

The first Amendment to the Constitution states in full “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  I take that to mean I am allowed to write this blog and say what I choose or to give a speech on any topic and on any street corner of these United States without government interference.  Were you aware that a man and his wife were detained, in handcuffs, inside a national park, Liberty Park ironically, for the act of handing out pamphlets regarding the Constitution of this country?  It is true.  Look it up.

And the last point regarding an uninformed electorate.  One minor example I’ll give you is the recent “Overpass” rallies held by many Tea Party organizations around this nation.  The county I live in doesn’t have an overpass so the local Tea Party held theirs by the side of one of the major highways in the county.  That organization received this post on it’s Face Book page.  "Your display on Route 19 today is an embarrassment to the state. I hope those unfortunate enough to have seen it don't think the entire community shares your hatred for the President of the United States."  She is apparently unaware that one poll shows that fifty seven pct. of AMERICAN voters disapprove of that president and a growing faction (Hovering near the 50% level) believe he has committed crimes deserving of impeachment.  She is unaware that a majority of her fellow citizens in West (By God) Virginia feel that way.  Then there are the people who get their information about the state of this country only from the mainstream media.  Even true idiots don’t limit themselves to one source of information.  Gad woman, WAKE UP.

This one fact leads us to a very dangerous situation for Americans.  Obamacare is so feared by the informed public that even agencies of the federal government are protesting being covered by it.  Just as an aside I have a good friend in the corporate world whose insurance premium has already doubled and they are looking at more increases every few months.  All because of Obamacare.  My personal physician has opted out of the Medicare system because of it and now sees only privately insured or cash customers.  I am one of those people covered by Medicare so I don’t get to see a Dr. very often these days.  Just can’t afford it. I could go on about the liberal overreach and destruction of freedoms as well as the encroachment on our Constitution, but I will save that for another day.

 

That ends the rant for today.  If you want to comment or take exception to these words, my email address is here for your enjoyment.

Your comment from above:  "Obamacare is so feared by the informed public that even agencies of the federal government are protesting being covered by it. "  You know that something is fishy when the Federal bureaucrats, most of whom are liberals, want to opt out of OBAMAcare.  WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE YOU ARE TAKEN TO THE SHED LIKE SHEEP AND SHEARED OF YOUR HARD EARNED WEALTH!  In order to pay for all of the nonsense they are spending your money on they have to print more, tax more and fool you into thinking that it is for your own good.  The question that folks need to ask themselves is:  How can government bankruptcy be for your own good??????  The socialist just don't get it and never will!!

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
