A Writer from The ATLANTIC Claims Christians Feel President Trump Has Failed Them

An editorial published last week in The Atlantic began with this:

“White, conservative Christians who set aside the tenets of their faith to support Donald Trump are now left with little to show for it. The closest thing social conservatives and evangelical supporters of President Donald Trump had to be a conversation stopper, when pressed about their support for a president who is so manifestly corrupt, cruel, mendacious, and psychologically unwell, was a simple phrase: “But Gorsuch.”

The editorial struck me as odd, especially when it began with these assumptions and insults. It’s as if the writer has a perch in the Heavens that provides him a clear vision of everything Donald Trump thinks, feels, says, and pierces the reality of his mental status. I’m certain God could do that. I doubt a “contributor” named Peter Wehner at The Atlantic can.

This thought also struck me: “Who is this writer? How can the assumption of the thoughts of every social conservative be known to this editorialist? Did God author Wehner’s column? I seriously doubt so.

But what I know for certain is that true Christians — you know, those that pray daily, believe God’s Word is infallible, Jesus is the Son of God, He died for our sins, rose from death, and points His followers to make right decisions on everything in their lives — are NOT single-issue voters. And to insinuate so reveals far more about the columnist than of the targets of his story.

I proudly number among that last category. Even with the political things in D.C. that don’t exactly fit my picture of political perfection, I don’t park my brain and its biological discernment ability on the church pew when I leave the service. It goes everywhere with me. I assume (and am certain) the same is true of other Christians.

Wehner certainly didn’t speak to very many of the 60+ million Trump voters before penning this missive. If he had, he would have heard a vastly different synopsis of Donald Trump’s considerable accomplishments for not just Christians, but for ALL Americans. That list is far too long to include here. But you certainly can find a laundry list of his accomplishments as President that will take more than a few minutes to read and a day or so to digest. But Peter Wehner didn’t do that, or worse, did do such a look-see and then ignored his findings. Why would any reputable journalist dismiss such critical information? The answer is wrapped in one word from the previous sentence: “reputable.”

It is far too common to believe that most print editorialists have inside information (which Wehner claims to possess) that provides the truth of Trump’s ineptitude that justifies their inclusion in his editorial. But facts, understanding facts, and making educated and realistic conclusions from facts are not necessary must-have elements in most print or broadcast reports today. Wehner simply confirms his membership in a class of journalists void of any concern for the accuracy of their claims against this or any other President’s abilities.

What’s sad is this writer, like many others, presumes to own an unfettered right to foist onto Americans his personal fodder disguised as truth.  In reality, his claims are nothing more than leftist anti-Trump drivel. His doing so DOES enhance the animus held by many liberal minions against this President. Wehner justifies the absence in his piece of the opinions of the Christians he purports to “know.” That is an example of classic Leftist journalism today: bait and switch.

Wehner chose to use as support for his premise a recent Supreme Court case, Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia. That case decided in mid-June in which the majority opinion, written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, protected gay and transgender individuals from workplace discrimination, handing the LGBTQ movement a historic victory.

Wehner maintained that Gorsuch’s doing so was “a crushing blow for the religious right, and it must have dawned on more than a few of Trump’s evangelical supporters that if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, the outcome of the case would have been the same; the only difference is that the margin probably would have been 7-2.”

How callous, how brazen, and how demeaning of Christians! Wehner, throughout his piece, used broad and sweeping assumptions about “Trump’s evangelical supporters” and what they feel about any Trump purported failures. Why was that case’s outcome so earth-shattering for Christians? I’ll assume here and say Wehner certainly did not ask any evangelical Trump supporter — certainly not me or anyone I know — how big a blow it was to their dream for this President to appoint a justice that ruled differently on this or any other issue which rebuffed the President’s wishes.

What other justification could any writer possess for their total denigration of the political appetites of 60+ million voters?

The truth is that NOT Wehner, NO other columnist at ANY newspaper, No broadcast journalist, No blogger or podcaster could possibly know the minds and hearts of ANY American without spending a massive amount of time conversing with not just one or two “social conservatives,” but with a few million of them. In this case, that didn’t happen.

Wehner did quote a conservative blogger named Rod Dreher — although Wehner never spoke to Dreher — claiming Dreher stated, “True, they (Supreme Court) have blocked some bad things over the years. That’s not nothing. But I think we’ve always known that judges are the real deal here.” Dreher continued, “Every institution — the media, academia, corporations, and others — are aginst us on gay and transgender rights, and GOP lawmakers are gutless. The only hope we had was that federal judges would protect the status quo. Now that’s gone.”

“If” Dreher really did say that, what he said was nothing more than a conservative American who, through a single SCOTUS decision, was disappointed to NOT receive his desired outcome. No doubt, many conservatives were too disappointed in that decision. Pardon me for assuming once again, but it is my opinion that few if any American feel it is possible for a majority of the justices to vote in support of conservative causes in every case that comes before them. Wehner apparently feels that because of what Dreher stated after the decision bashed the hopes of every Christian for this President to produce everything attempted in this presidency.

Wehner must think that all Christians are single-issue voters. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Without exhaustively recounting Trump’s wins for Americans, consider just a few:

  • Massive tax cuts for individuals and corporations;
  • The rollback of dozens of onerous regulations on energy companies and major corporations that incentivized previously vapid expansions, hirings of millions of new workers, and bringing manufacturers back to the U.S., something that his predecessor said was “gone forever” and would never return;
  • Undeniably massive new employment, plunging unemployment with the largest number of African Americans working than ever, and the highest labor participation rate in history;
  • Median household income is today the highest ever;
  • Regarding that Christian “single-issue” that Wehner claims is all that matters, Trump gave the biggest blow to Planned Parenthood in the last 30 years;
  • His tariff threats forced Mexico to stem the flow of illegals through the U.S. southern border;
  • He ordered the strike that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who had personally ordered the killing of hundreds of Americans;
  • He continues to appoint a record number of conservative judges to federal courts across the nation: 200 of those he nominated have been confirmed and are at work today.

We can stop there, but there are hundreds of others. It’s easy to conclude from facts without any assumptions that this President has done much more for Americans than just appointing two conservative justices to the Supreme Court.

Do you think Wehner really believes that Christians don’t care about all of this? Or does he truly think that millions of those who put Trump in the White House are turning away because a Supreme Court ruling on a case didn’t go their way? Accepting that requires a belief that Christian conservatives are too simple, single-minded, and blind to the issues that matter to EVERY American. And all those wins by this Administration dwarf those from his predecessor’s eight-year reign at the top.

The only thing proven in Wehner’s column is that Leftist members of the Media really are blind to the realities of the issues important to Christians. Abortion and LGBTQ issues are certainly important to them, but a call by the Court that goes the wrong way is certainly not an end-all. Trump’s accomplishments in total are monumental when compared to the accomplishments of the last three presidents combined.

After my response to Mr. Wehner, one question popped into my mind? Does he, or does any other writer, maintain that they represent the political hopes of Christian Americans? I think he really does. That alone explains the conclusions he reached sufficient to pen this column. He produced “fruit from a poison tree.” In this case, the tree from which originated the fruit he described was the tree of bias, partisan elitism, and Leftist ideology. That tree is certainly not embraced by any Christian I know. It’s certain that Wehner, if honest, would agree.

You will be shocked to learn that Peter Wehner is a Vice President and Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “Ethics.”

Ethics is defined as “the rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions.” After digesting Wehner’s assault on President Trump, Wehner destroys what that institution stands for. But that’s common for Leftist members of the Media. Truth is valuable only when it feeds specific political narratives. In this case, Wehner failed.

Actor Terry Crews Feels to BLM Only ”Some” Black Lives Matter

This Cancel Culture and Elitism we’ve talked about for several years at TruthNewsNetwork is consuming our world. Every day we see example after example of how frustrating it is to be caught up in a conundrum that puts you in the bullseye of those who have taken command of the determination of everything and everybody regarding saying and doing the “right” thing. It’s bad enough that anyone has to even think about such silliness. But your having to do so just to survive in your chosen career or to maintain friendships or keep your job is nasty. And it’s not based on what you DO, but based solely on what someone who controls the rules of Social Elitism can with a snap of the fingers put you in a good place or send you to “Hell on Earth” with no regard at all for the truth of any matter. The substance has been deleted and replaced by Social Elitism. And those in charge control far more of this nation today than they did just two weeks ago. And if things don’t change, in 90 days, they will be telling everyone what cereal to eat for breakfast and what color bowl from which to eat it!

That may seem to be a joke, but it’s no joke. Today more than ever, the jobs, friendships, family relationships as well as friends, business associates and fellow employees are more than ever before being forced to embrace a set of fundaments, standards, rules, how to’s and how not to’s that regulate every process of being “acceptable” within all these overlapping circles. Additionally, the social elitists that control the circle in which you find yourself have the power to at any time, for whatever reason, and without any justification, put the word out. You’ll not only find yourself thrown to the curb, but without any knowledge of your doing anything wrong! You’ll never know in advance what you are supposed to and not supposed to do.

Today’s craziness has evolved into schizophrenic paranoia: everyone is afraid of saying anything for fear of saying the wrong thing. And few even know what the right and wrong thing to say are!

Social Elitism Now Dominates Hollywood

Actor and comedian Terry Crews is taking heat for criticizing the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization over its tendency to hone in on police brutality and ignore far more significant issues in the black community. He recently tweeted that he wants to make sure “black lives matter” doesn’t turn into “black lives matter more.” Predictably, he was met by reactionary shrieks of “Uncle Tom” and “coon.”

Crews appeared on CNN on Monday night to explain his objections to BLM, and instead received a lecture from Don Lemon about the grievous errors in his line of thinking. After informing the movie star that he (Lemon) has “skin as tough as an armadillo” thanks to his soapbox at CNN, Lemon told Crews that “if you want an All Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence,” then he should “start that movement with that name.”

“The Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice in that manner, not about what’s happening in black neighborhoods,” Lemon said smugly.

Crews tried to explain that the Black Lives Matter movement is no longer solely about police brutality, as the organization’s website admits, but was repeatedly interrupted. Lemon, of course, had to keep his viewers from hearing the truth: that an organization purportedly dedicated to making black lives matter only actually cares about some black lives.

According to a database compiled by the Washington Post, only nine unarmed black people were killed by police in 2019. At least half of those incidents occurred after the unarmed individual attacked the police officer on the scene. This figure hardly compares to the thousands of African Americans affected by violent crime, largely perpetrated by other African Americans.

As a matter of fact, between recent crime waves in major cities and innocent black folks like David Dorn losing their lives in the wake of riots and looting, BLM and the related #DefundThePolice movement may be responsible for many more than nine deaths by the end of the summer. An eight-year-old girl was shot to death over the weekend in Atlanta near Wendy’s where Rashard Brooks was killed.

Cockburn suggests that Black Lives Matter should change its name to “0.00001 percent of Black Lives Matter” — “0.00001BLM,” for short.

Not Smart To Mess With Terry

BLM’s hypocrisy doesn’t end with claiming to want to lift black people while ignoring interracial crime. The organization is also against one of the most proven ways to reduce poverty and violence: fatherhood. BLM explicitly opposes traditional two-parent families: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

Even the progressive left’s radical gender ideology seems to be more critical to BLM than reducing violence and providing stable homes for black children. “We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum,” the organization also says on its website.

Like the leaders of Black Lives Matter, prominent politicians are failing to take responsibility for the uptick in crime over the past several weeks. Just as Don Lemon attacked Terry Crews for mentioning negative trends outside of police brutality, Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago shifted the blame to firearms: ‘Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun.”

Crews perfectly captured this phenomenon in another one of his recent tweets, writing, “There are ‘gatekeepers of Blackness’ within our own community who decide who’s Black and who’s not. I have often been called out for not being ‘black enough.’ How can that be?” (Crews is happily married to a mixed-racial wife)

Welcome to 2020, Mr. Crews. Anyone who questions the far-left agenda of groups like BLM will be shut down, black or not.

Rather than give you more of Don Lemon’s whipping of Terry Crews from his CNN show Monday night, we decided to call on Rob Smith of The First to break it down with an actual segment of that confrontation for yourself. Rob is an African-American journalist and is conservative. This piece includes a portion of the Crews interview which shows you just how black elites in media treat those of their own race who dare to make sense of the obvious that none of the BLM supporters from the black community want to accept: that Black Lives Matter only cares about Black Lives when those lives fit their peculiar narrative that details any opportunities to diminish any white person or group of white people, or, in Terry’s case, any black person who doesn’t toe the BLM line:

Summary

I cannot go without saying this: Terry Crews is not only an outstanding actor, but he’s also an African American man who made it out of some nasty spots in Flint, Michigan growing up. He chose to put aside all the petty racial partisanship in favor of working hard, working smart, honing his skills, and pursuing his dreams of becoming a successful actor. He made his own breaks. He did that by consciously refusing to allow the black environment in the U.S. to flood him with thoughts of victimhood. He took responsibility to make his life what it is today by not letting the elitist perspective dominate his thinking.

These babies were shot last week and died. Where is BLM on saving These lives?

Terry certainly is NOT a sellout or an Uncle Tom. He’s a smart, sensitive, and thoughtful American. He believes strongly in personal accountability and responsibility for one’s own life.

That’s too much for Don Lemon. After all, CNN has mastered the art of putting people in front of their cameras, who are mediocre at best at their craft. But they are all masters of denigration: the denigration of anyone and any group that refuses to accept being a mirror image of what someone else — ANYONE else — thinks they should be.

Lemon’s insistence that BLM is ONLY protesting against police violence is grossly false. His doing so repeatedly in Terry Crews’ face is an insult to every black person in America.

Sadly, Lemon has a big microphone. Fortunately, however, very few people watch him make a fool of himself every weeknight. And Terry Crews did it masterfully by just allowing Don to speak. Lemon’s little more than an empty suit. And his ratings confirm that again and again.

I bet all three of his fans got a kick watching Lemon insult Terry Crews.

“On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare”

I know: this seems like a foolish time for TruthNewsNetwork to get worked up about Climate Change and Environmentalism. “After all, there are FAR too many D.C. items that Americans are far more afraid of than Climate Change, right?” The answer to that depends on who you speak to. Greta Thunberg — the young lady who spoke so passionately about Climate Change at the United Nations — would argue that Climate Change is far more important than whether or not President Donald Trump gets re-elected in November. Remember: she refused to even shake his hand at the UN.

But we ARE speaking today about Climate Change. Let’s take a break from all the “he said — she said” in Washington and get some factual and REAL truth about Climate Change. You’ll probably enjoy this, too. Why? Because it debunks ALL of what the environment experts — ALL OF THEM — have been shoving down the throats of every person on Earth for decades! And the “debunker” is not an environmental hack, a flaming Conservative out to get the liberal-left, he’s a learned environmentalist, a scholar, and someone who has spent his life practicing his trade by actually doing all that’s necessary to get facts! (No, I doubt he will be on Al Gore’s Christmas card list this year!)

Let’s get right to it. Listen to what Michael Shellenberger has to give to us about the TRUTH of Climate Change.

Meet Michael

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as an Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”
  • The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”
  • Climate change is not making natural disasters worse
  • Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003
  • The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska
  •  The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California
  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s
  • The Netherlands became rich, not poor while adapting to life below sea level
  • We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter
  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change
  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels
  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism. In reality, the above facts come from the best-available scientific studies, including those conducted by or accepted by the IPCC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and other leading scientific bodies.

Some people will, when they read this, imagine that I’m some right-wing anti-environmentalist. I’m not. At 17, I lived in Nicaragua to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution. At 23 I raised money for Guatemalan women’s cooperatives. In my early 20s, I lived in the semi-Amazon doing research with small farmers fighting land invasions. At 26 I helped expose poor conditions at Nike factories in Asia.

I became an environmentalist at 16 when I threw a fundraiser for Rainforest Action Network. At 27, I helped save the last unprotected ancient redwoods in California. In my 30s I advocated renewables and successfully helped persuade the Obama administration to invest $90 billion into them. Over the last few years, I helped save enough nuclear plants from being replaced by fossil fuels to prevent a sharp increase in emissions.

But until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an “existential” threat to human civilization, and called it a “crisis.”

But mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.

I even stood by as people in the White House and many in the news media tried to destroy the reputation and career of an outstanding scientist, good man, and friend of mine, Roger Pielke, Jr., a lifelong progressive Democrat and environmentalist who testified in favor of carbon regulations. Why did they do that? Because his research proves natural disasters aren’t getting worse.

But then, last year, things spiraled out of control.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, “The world is going to end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change.” Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed: “Climate Change Kills Children.”

The world’s most influential green journalist, Bill McKibben, called climate change the “greatest challenge humans have ever faced” and said it would “wipe out civilizations.”

Mainstream journalists reported, repeatedly, that the Amazon was “the lungs of the world,” and that deforestation was like a nuclear bomb going off.

As a result, half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct. And in January, one out of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.

Whether or not you have children you must see how wrong this is. I admit I may be sensitive because I have a teenage daughter. After we talked about the science she was reassured. But her friends are deeply misinformed and thus, understandably, frightened.

I thus decided I had to speak out. I knew that writing a few articles wouldn’t be enough. I needed a book to properly lay out all of the evidence.

And so my formal apology for our fear-mongering comes in the form of my new book, Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All. It is based on two decades of research and three decades of environmental activism. At 400 pages, with 100 of them endnotes, Apocalypse Never covers climate change, deforestation, plastic waste, species extinction, industrialization, meat, nuclear energy, and renewables.

Some highlights from the book:

Factories and modern farming are the keys to human liberation and environmental progress

The most important thing for saving the environment is producing more food, particularly meat, on less land

The most important thing for reducing air pollution and carbon emissions is moving from wood to coal to petroleum to natural gas to uranium

100% renewables would require increasing the land used for energy from today’s 0.5% to 50%

We should want cities, farms, and power plants to have higher, not lower, power densities

Vegetarianism reduces one’s emissions by less than 4%

Greenpeace didn’t save the whales, switching from whale oil to petroleum and palm oil did

“Free-range” beef would require 20 times more land and produce 300% more emissions

Greenpeace dogmatism worsened forest fragmentation of the Amazon

The colonialist approach to gorilla conservation in the Congo produced a backlash that may have resulted in the killing of 250 elephants

Why were we all so misled?

In the final three chapters of Apocalypse Never I expose the financial, political, and ideological motivations. Environmental groups have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars from fossil fuel interests. Groups motivated by anti-humanist beliefs forced the World Bank to stop trying to end poverty and instead make poverty “sustainable.” And status anxiety, depression, and hostility to modern civilization are behind much of the alarmism.

Once you realize just how badly misinformed we have been, often by people with plainly unsavory or unhealthy motivations, it is hard not to feel duped.

Will Apocalypse Never make any difference? There are certainly reasons to doubt it. The news media have been making apocalyptic pronouncements about climate change since the late 1980s, and do not seem disposed to stop.

The ideology behind environmental alarmism — Malthusianism — has been repeatedly debunked for 200 years and yet is more powerful than ever. But there are also reasons to believe that environmental alarmism will, if not come to an end, have diminishing cultural power.

The coronavirus pandemic is an actual crisis that puts the climate “crisis” into perspective. Even if you think we have overreacted, Covid-19 has killed nearly 500,000 people and shattered economies around the globe. Scientific institutions, including WHO and IPCC, have undermined their credibility through the repeated politicization of science. Their future existence and relevance depend on new leadership and serious reform.

Facts still matter, and social media is allowing for a wider range of new and independent voices to outcompete alarmist environmental journalists at legacy publications. Nations are reverting openly to self-interest and away from Malthusianism and neoliberalism, which is good for nuclear and bad for renewables.

The evidence is overwhelming that our high-energy civilization is better for people and nature than the low-energy civilization that climate alarmists would return us to.

The invitations from IPCC and Congress are signs of a growing openness to new thinking about climate change and the environment. Another one has been to the response to my book from climate scientists, conservationists, and environmental scholars. “Apocalypse Never is an extremely important book,” writes Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb. “This may be the most important book on the environment ever written,” says one of the fathers of modern climate science Tom Wigley.

“We environmentalists condemn those with antithetical views of being ignorant of science and susceptible to confirmation bias,” wrote the former head of The Nature Conservancy, Steve McCormick. “But too often we are guilty of the same. Shellenberger offers ‘tough love:’ a challenge to entrenched orthodoxies and rigid, self-defeating mindsets. Apocalypse Never serves up occasionally stinging, but always well-crafted, evidence-based points of view that will help develop the ‘mental muscle’ we need to envision and design not only a hopeful but an attainable future.”

That is all I hoped for in writing it. If you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll agree that it’s perhaps not as strange as it seems that a lifelong environmentalist, progressive, and climate activist felt the need to speak out against the alarmism.

I further hope that you’ll accept my apology.

What Happens if Trump Loses in November? The “Great Reset”

How would you respond if I asked you, “Is your world one of questions without answers, fear without peace, anger without resolution, and unknowns with no way to know them?” If I asked that to most Americans today, they’d nod their heads in affirmation. I know I feel that way. What’s strangest of all is beginning in January of 2017, all such difficulties disappeared for most of us. Why? Because newly inaugurated President Donald Trump had begun fixing multiple things in the U.S. at once that we didn’t even know were broken. And even with the roadblocks he faced, he was successful at turning around the economy in dramatic fashion, reduced unemployment, and subsequently increased employments to levels never before seen. Additionally, he brought trillions of dollars of manufacturing back to the U.S., supervised the U.S. becoming energy independent and Earth’s largest producer of oil and gas, passed a comprehensive criminal reform bill, and gave Americans individually and even companies tremendous tax cuts. All of this while watching federal revenues climb to unheard-of levels in just three years!

Things were pretty darn good: until February of 2020. (They were good even in spite of his impeachment by the House)

Enter Coronavirus. And the slide down the tunnel of “Uh-Oh” began. And we haven’t stopped sliding as of the end of June.

But, never worry. The likes of John Kerry and Al Gore have a plan to fix everything: Global Warming, Coronavirus, national debt, cultural and religious differences, wrapped in a contrived economy that we in the U.S. will find it to no longer be our concern. I forgot: while we’re doing all that, we’ve got to ante-up a to global government the trillions of dollars necessary to prop-up this pipe dream.

What? You haven’t heard about the “Great Reset?” Although you are probably not familiar with it, it could be well on its way, if the World Economic Forum (WEF) and a bunch of other powerful global organizations have their way. Trust me, the Great Reset is gaining traction faster than a middle-school fashion fad—and this is not a good thing.

In case you don’t care to take my word for it, allow me to introduce the architect of the Great Reset: World Economic Forum founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab. “A Great Reset is necessary to build a new social contract that honors the dignity of every human being,” Schwab recently announced.

Yes, Schwab wants out with the old social contract, and in with the new. But, what would Schwab’s new social contract look like?

According to Schwab, “The global health crisis has laid bare the unsustainability of our old system in terms of social cohesion, the lack of equal opportunities and inclusiveness. Nor can we turn our backs on the evils of racism and discrimination. We need to build into this new social contract our intergenerational responsibility to ensure that we live up to the expectations of young people.” What the heck does any of this mean?

As if his description there wasn’t enough to make you do a double-take, consider this statement from Schwab, “This global pandemic has also demonstrated again how interconnected we are. We have to restore a functioning system of smart global cooperation structured to address the challenges of the next 50 years. The Great Reset will require us to integrate all stakeholders of global society into a community of common interest, purpose, and action.”

I don’t know about you, but when I hear phrases like “integrate all stakeholders of global society into a community of common interest, purpose, and action” my internal alarm bells ring louder than Big Ben.

In reality, the “Great Reset” is just another attempt at a global government. And a global government is a farce. There are 195 sovereign countries in the world. It is laughable, not believable, to expect that 195 countries, accounting for more than seven billion people, would ever agree to a Great Reset.

The world is full of nations with vastly different cultures, political philosophies, and social-economic systems. Have we not learned over the past few centuries that these countries would rather govern themselves than be under the thumb of a faraway, big, unresponsive dragon of a government? Have we not learned that local government, which is closest to the people, and most responsive to their needs and unique circumstances, is vastly superior to a far-off, out-of-touch, bloated worldwide governing body?

The Great Reset, if ever enacted, would turn back the clock to the pre-Enlightenment era; to a time when individual freedom was more a wish than reality and elites like Klaus Schwab were unquestioned. The Enlightenment changed the world for the better. The “Great Reset” would set the world back centuries and thus should be resisted at all costs.

Understand This…

None of the noise during this year that turned into chaos and then morphed into an impeachment, a pandemic, and now social and racial protests and riots was accidental. “Oh, Dan. That’s just another conspiracy theory!” Rethink that, folks. There are too many moving pieces that have been craftily placed in their appropriate places at the exact time necessary to keep the fires of destruction burning brightly for this to be just “another strange coincidence.” If something looks too real to be unreal, you can always bet it’s real. And this is real.

The idea of a global government has been the dream of a group of world elitist individuals and governments for centuries. Their thought in hypothesizing this has always been, “With just one government, one economy, one set of laws and rules, the World would move smoother, simpler, quicker than it ever will with 195 different countries, people, and governments each trying to function all by themselves. One entity is the best solution for every ill for every person on Earth!” Of course, all who believe that think they are the individual and the group that is best suited to operate such a government.

In the U.S., we heard the whispers before Obama’s election that he was the globalist that would be anointed to lead such a transition to a globalist society. His pandering to the big names in Europe and the Middle East was a clue something like that was being planned. Then, John Kerry and Al Gore jumped onto the bandwagon and became Obama’s messengers to the Rothschilds of France and Switzerland, Prince Charles in the U.K., and the others who get together each January in Davos, Switzerland to plot their path. Their specific plans? One world currency and economy, Climate Change, a single worldwide military, and a globalized education system. Taxation would be from the Top Down and would include all nations. Every aspect of life in America as we know would be obliterated. That would be necessary to make it happen.

Many feel that the massive amount of government debt for every nation would prevent the implementation of such a model. Others think (and I fall into this category) the “closer” to make such a reset would be if “they” — whoever “they” are — would offer each nation the cancellation of their entire national debt if they participate in such a platform of one global government.

Summary

Know this: This coming January, regardless of who is in residence in the White House, global elites by the thousands will board their private jets from every quarter on the Globe to make their way to Davos, Switzerland to drink, brag, and pontificate about all that’s best for the World and who should pull it all together as the leader of such a utopia. They’ve had this same conversation numerous times over several centuries. But the stars have never aligned to facilitate such a radical and necessarily universal transition by so many countries. I cannot imagine even trying to get Xi Jinping of China on the same page as Prince Charles of the U.K., let alone Kim Jong Un with Japan’s President to agree on some type of unified entity for Japan that includes everybody on the Korean Penninsula.

Does this mass of Autocratic globalist wannabees think they could possibly pull this off? They very well might be successful — “If” this one thing happens: it will NEVER occur with Donald Trump at the helm of the United States.

These globalists know that. Why do you think there is such a concerted effort on every front to discredit him, his policies, his considerable achievements for the American people, and his plans for even more significant achievements in a second Trump term?

They MUST remove Donald Trump from office to allow any possible transition to a Globalist structure even to get started.

I won’t waste your time and start naming more names. Just imagine for a moment if something like was happening, who in power in the United States would be the likeliest of individuals who are fighting so hard to remove Donald Trump. Every person that comes to your mind is likely to be a part of it. And there are certainly just as many again who are foaming to dump this President who has done little but rain on their parade. Obama was to lay the groundwork. Hillary was to move it forward in transition. Who was to take the torch from Hillary? We’ll never know because Donald Trump destroyed their grand scheme.

Am I certain of all this? There are few things involving our government, of which I am certain. In this, just as I have poured it out to you, I cannot honestly say I’m certain of every piece of this plan. But what I am certain of is that such a utopian worldwide concept has long been just a dream and that are thousands of very powerful, very wealthy, and very politically connected individuals that certainly feel they can make this a reality.

We lowly plebes will be forced to stand on the sidelines, hope and pray for our nation, and trust God to thwart the evil schemes of these evil people and “Keep America Great.”

The “Cancel Culture”

It’s become so convoluted, so broad and wide, so misrepresented that most Americans do not understand what Cancel Culture is, what its purposes are, and what is its basis.

Some are quick to respond by saying “The U.S. founders were almost all slave owners. We demand that their evils are erased from history books and they are no longer honored! After all, they committed the most egregious acts any man can force on another: slavery. The fact that a white man would own a black man and that the black man had absolutely no rights at all is the opposite of what Americans have studied in U.S. history for more than 200 years. It’s all lies!”

Watching and listening to people who tag themselves as “authorities” on racial rights and wrongs resonates deeply with many folks — those who vaguely remember the horrors in Europe and Asia in World War II where nations ruled by despots portrayed REAL racism on people who were different colors, different cultures, sometimes different languages, and religions. But THOSE tyrants didn’t just tear down statues selectively chosen by a few as being eligible for cancellation, they slaughtered people with whom they disagreed: men, women, and children. More than six million Jews were shot, burned to death, gassed, or starved. All of those happened in places scattered throughout Europe.

Do American minorities have some unilateral right to destroy the history of the racial injustices, not only injustices around us today, but injustices from every part of America’s history? Does that even make sense?

Before we go any further, one African American man became so enraged at today’s “Cancel Culture” he boiled over. Listen to his words describing his thoughts and feelings:

For What and Whom IS History?

The subject in college that I hated most was American history — not because it wasn’t important and not because I didn’t enjoy learning the details about our nation, but because every professor I had in four different American history courses concentrated almost solely on specific dates! Their exams were not about the history of which we learned, it was as if they wanted to trip us up for not remembering exact dates. Maybe the exact dates are not so important. But the context of time and life in the U.S. at those specific times IS critical to our understanding.

When my children went through the same dilemma, their much older Dad explained that I felt the exact same way when I was in college. What was different from the way my professors explained was this: I told our children that every important American history event never happened in a vacuum. Life around each event was far more important to understand than just each historical event by itself.

We all live in context. Our laws are made in the context of the day. What was meaningless in 1965 may be critical to address in a law today. What today prompts a law probably would have been insignificant and certainly not important in 1965.

History is to give us all not only a few details of a few events from our past. It is to give us the understanding of how and what initiated those historical acts, learning the details of those acts themselves, and putting them each in historical context as was applicable when each occurred and then to compare each with today’s America.

The Holocaust

Not only the Jewish people, but people from every ethnicity, nationality, and culture have at least heard of the Holocaust. The Holocaust did NOT occur in a vacuum either. It was not initiated by one or two events but from a generation of elitism in Germany that included gross racism against Jews by German nationals. I don’t want to be cold or harsh in saying this, but today’s cries by the Leftist media and many political activists of systemic racism are totally wrong. Germany in the late 1930s and early 1940s WAS systemically racist. What’s the difference?

The government of  Nazi Germany fanned the fires of racism with laws, policies, regulations, and even social structure to continually fan the fires of racism among the people. But then Hitler’s government became aggressive actions to target not just a few Jews embedded among the German people but to force Jews out of their homes, jobs, and even neighborhoods to segregate Jews to keep them separate from Germans.

The “Final Solution” — or the plan to rid Germany of Jews — began with the Wannsee Conference.

In 1942, a group of high-ranking Nazi officials meet and calmly discuss the logistics of the “Final Solution,” the elimination of Jews from Germany. Along with notorious figures such as Adolf Eichmann (Gerd Böckmann), a number of lesser-known officers like Reinhard Heydrich (Dietrich Mattausch) debate plans of whether to reform the Jews, ship them elsewhere or simply end their lives. The actual minutes of the meeting were taken from each attendee to be destroyed. But, years later, it was discovered that one attendee kept the notes. From those notes came the movie that told the entire story of the planned extermination of six million Jews to rid Germany of them entirely. That movie, Conspiracy, is available today and can be viewed at several online streaming services. (I highly recommend it to all who want the REAL version of Germany’s World War II)

Erase History?

One can destroy some of the representations of historical events. That’s what horrifies most Americans watching evening news today. Statues, monuments, even buildings, many of which have been in existence for 200 years are being defaced and destroyed by “Cancel Culture’s” minions. Why? It’s foolish for one to believe history can be erased. It’s crazy to want to do that!

If any culture in modern history has a right to remove reminders of their history, it is the Jewish people. Their eradication by Nazis was as horrible and insidious as any other in World history. And Jews cringe even at the thought of anyone trying to erase that history. Why?

Remember: no historical event exists without context. The details of the context along with the historical events themselves are the greatest tools for building a future without repeating those horrors from the past.

Dachau was a Nazi concentration camp opened in March 1933, which was initially intended to hold political prisoners. It is located on the grounds of an abandoned munitions factory northeast of the medieval town of Dachau, about 16 km northwest of Munich in the state of Bavaria, in southern Germany. When the Allied forces invaded Dachau and saw the inhumanity of the slaughters of an estimated one million Jews there, every citizen — man, woman, and child — of that small town were forced to go to the concentration camp to view the remains of tens of thousands of Jews that died in the gas chambers. The bodies those people from Dachau Village were forced to see were just those that had not yet been incinerated in the ovens at that camp.

Why would our European allies force that on those German villagers? They knew that unless German civilians were witness to the travesties of the German army, no one would believe those stories.

That is history. Jews nor Germans would EVER think about destroying Dachau. In fact, it remains to this day in the exact same form in which it existed the day those Germans were forced to go view the carnage. Why would they leave it in place all these years? It was so horrible, one would think (like many today in the U.S.), “We want it gone! It illustrates some of the lowest depravity of man. Why would we even think about keeping it?”

Simple Answer: To keep historical events that when described in their context would keep generation after generation of Germans from ever thinking, “Nothing like that could ever happen here.” The context in which the horrors against the Jews were created is exactly what needs to be branded on the minds of every German from every future generation after World War II in perpetuity.

I’ve been to Dachau!

Its horrors are forever in my memory. I walked through the large room where Germans tricked prisoners by telling them they were going to get a shower. When they all entered that room, (about 200 at a time) the doors were closed and locked and the gas was turned on. It took about five minutes for them all to die.

After about ten minutes, the doors were opened, and German soldiers began to haul their bodies and stack them in the adjacent large room where three massive ovens stood ready to welcome tens of thousands of lifeless innocent Jews for their cremation.

Those ovens are forever stamped in my memory. And with those memories and the context of their creation, no one can ever convince me “That was horrendous! We need to destroy that Concentration Camp!” German people never thought their leaders would allow such devastation.

By the way, all German concentration camps from WW II were preserved for history.

What’s Different Here?

NOTHING!

It is not only unconscionable that a large group of Americans choose to destroy representations of the American Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and even the memories of the men and women who led and served in those and other important American events. What is their reasoning for doing so? “To erase the memories of those who instigated the atrocities of those events.”

Doing so is the definition of Lunacy!

There is no doubt slavery was and is a travesty. There is and never has been any justifiable purpose for any human owning another human. But thinking one can do anything to erase historical memories of events — both good AND bad — is actually stupid. Doing so WOULD steal a number of great learning opportunities from every future generation of Americans. And for what purpose?

Summary

My youngest daughter had a Japanese classmate during her freshman year in college. That Japanese girl was horrified the first day in American history where the professor showed an old black and white film of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. That Japanese student actually got up and stormed from the class.

My daughter saw her later that day and asked why she was so upset. That Japanese student shared that ALL World War II history in Japan stated that World War II in the Pacific began when the United States bombed Tokyo! Nothing is Japanese history books even mentioned Pearl Harbor.

Cancel Culture is pure lunacy.

Instead, let’s be realistic, understanding that everyone must have the opportunity to see and hear all American history: even the bad. Someone more knowledgable than me once said, “If we don’t learn from our history we are doomed to repeat it.” Sure, there are parts of history I wish were different. But they weren’t different! And those bad things for which most Americans are ashamed they are part of our history, let’s learn from those and make certain none of that ever happens again.

Doesn’t that make better sense than just ignoring the reality of our past? My grandchildren and THEIR grandchildren need to know and understand slavery and its horrors — not to honor the evil, but to learn to never let it creep back into America again.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary Committee Hearing was Nothing but a Circus

The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday held an oversight hearing focusing on Attorney General William Barr’s decisions as head of the Department of Justice. As part of the proceedings, the committee heard testimony from two DOJ officials: Aaron Zelinsky, a federal prosecutor at the US attorney’s office in Baltimore, and John Elias, a senior official in the department’s antitrust division.

Zelinsky worked on the special counsel Robert Mueller’s team during the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the US election, and he testified Wednesday that senior DOJ officials improperly interfered in the sentencing recommendation for the former longtime Republican strategist Roger Stone. Specifically, he told lawmakers that DOJ leaders sought a weaker sentence for Stone at Barr’s direction because they were “afraid of the president.”

Elias testified that Barr weaponized the antitrust division to harass marijuana companies because he doesn’t like the cannabis industry.

The committee also heard testimony from two former DOJ officials: former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer. Mukasey was invited to testify by Republicans on the panel.

The witnesses who appeared on Wednesday were asked at one point why they chose to testify. Here’s how Elias and Zelinsky, both of whom are still serving at the Justice Department under Barr, responded:

Elias: “I looked at what was happening, which was unlike anything I had ever seen before, and it didn’t feel like a good faith calling of balls and strikes that I had been used to seeing. And I care very much about the antitrust laws, their evenhanded enforcement, protecting consumers, and also the institution of the antitrust division where I have spent my entire legal career. And when I saw these abuses, I thought that the public should get to know about them. So that’s why I stepped forward.”

Zelinsky: “Because I took an oath to do so.”

Things went downhill from there. Want an example? At one point, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell excoriated Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan for not wearing a mask during the hearing:

“Let me just remind every member of this committee, and people that are walking into this room, that the guidelines have been set forth by the office of the attendee physician and the house speaker that members need to be wearing masks,” Mucarsel-Powell said. “And the chairman stated earlier, very clearly, that members will not be recognized if they are not wearing masks.”

She then addressed Jordan, saying it was “incredibly disrespectful that you have been sitting here next to the chairman without wearing a mask. You are putting other peoples’ lives and their families in danger.”

Jordan replied by saying that “the unmasking this committee should be concerned about is the unmasking that took place at the end of the Obama administration.”

Jordan was referring to “unmasking,” which is a routine and legal process that the US intelligence community engages in regularly. Republican lawmakers allege that the Obama administration improperly and illegally “unmasked” former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s name in intelligence reports monitoring the communications of then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Rep. Jamie Raskin, one of the most outspoken Democrats on the committee, asked former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer about Barr’s unfounded claim that foreign countries would meddle in the 2020 election by mass-producing counterfeit ballots.

Barr has “provided an echo for the president, who has voted himself by mail in New York and in Florida and whose party encourages its members to go out and vote by mail — but he’s echoed the president in saying there’s something wrong with voting by mail, and he’s alleged that voting by mail makes us vulnerable to foreign influence by counterfeit ballots,” Raskin said to Ayer. “Is that an appropriate role for the attorney general of the United States?”

Ayer said: “I think it’s not, and especially it’s not because it appears to be something that there’s absolutely no truth in at all. There are five states that do nothing but vote by mail, and every other state, I think virtually every other state, uses vote by mail somewhat substantially. So the idea that we’re going to throw cold water on the notion that we’re going to vote by mail is just disreputable. And it’s entirely inappropriate. It really isn’t his job anyway. If there were some law-enforcement function, there it might be. But basically he’s just echoing the president.”

Enough of these meaningless allegations tossed about and the screaming match in the House committee hearing room! A bunch of adults acting at best like children and, at worst, a bunch of circus clowns!

What Really Happened in that Hearing?

I’ll give you my two cents:

  • Two DOJ lifetime bureaucrats were enraged when AG Barr instructed their office to reduce the federal sentence handed down in the Roger Stone case. They both resigned over Barr’s order to do so.
  • The reduced sentence was not only a process that happens in at least 40% of federal cases when judges prepare to sentence defendants, their recommended sentence in the case far exceeded punishments meted out in every previous federal case with similar situations.
  • None of this mentions that the Attorney General is overall responsible for the actions of any attorneys that work in the DOJ under him. Obama’s AG Eric Holder frequently intervened in federal sentences as did his replacement, AG Loretta Lynch.
  • What was shocking to me (but should not have been) was that nobody who testified offered any firsthand evidence of any of the evidence of alleged wrongdoing! Why should that NOT surprise me? Because that has been the case in every allegation against President Trump in those impeachment hearings initiated in “Ukraine-Gate!” All-day it was this: “Mr. So-and-so told me that he heard Mr. Boo-Boo talking on the phone to Miss La-La, who said Attorney General Barr coughed when he was reading the recommended charges against Mr. Stone. And  because he coughed, that was a sign that President Trump was mad because Stone was his friend and had promised he’d take care of it all.”

That may sound like a juvenile—explanation for a House Judiciary Committee hearing. But, folks, it was that stupid! It was nothing but a show for the Hard Left in Congress and the nation. Why do that? CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS!

Summary

I’m confident you’d like to know what was the purpose of the charade perpetrated by Rep. Nadler. “The Penguin,” as he has been termed held this committee for no other reason than to lay a foundation. Put that one hearing in the context along with what is imminent in Washington.

Have you forgotten that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Federal Attorney Jim Huber of Utah to investigate alleged wrongdoing in the Hillary Clinton email server investigation? Even though Session was fired and replaced with Barr, Huber continued acting on his commission, worked (and still does) behind a curtain of secrecy, and has yet not stepped forward with his findings. Additionally, Attorney General Barr appointed Connecticut Federal Attorney John Durham to investigate any wrongdoing by those in the Obama Administration regarding all things that occurred during the Russian Collusion investigation. About six months into Durham’s investigation, the DOJ announced his investigation had shifted gears into a full-blown criminal investigation.

Here’s what’s about to happen:

  • Huber and Durham are very close to bringing their cases forward;
  • The Huber case will probably implicate those from the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the Clinton Foundation, and possibly others in wrongdoing regarding that private email server kept in her home. Just having it there was a constant violation of the handling of classified information. And each such violation was a felony;
  • The Durham case purportedly included multiple grand juries hearing the testimony of numerous subpoenaed witnesses. It is almost certain its recommendations will consist of indictments of numerous members of the Obama Department of Justice, the Obama FBI, and possibly even members of Obama’s White House leadership team;

Don’t for one moment think the Nadler House Judiciary Committee hearing and future such hearings ahead are NOT purposely to build layer upon layer of finger-pointing at Attorney General William Barr to destroy his credibility. Both House and Senate leadership teams know their only hope at escaping the vitriol of American voters just before the November election is to paint Barr as nothing more than a Trump sycophant acting on instructions from the President to attack, attack, and attack those who oppose him to deflect attention from HIS wrongdoing.

In other words, all of these upcoming House committee hearings are nothing more than smokescreens.

Should we expect anything less?

“They”

Who are “They:” the players in this 2020 charade leading up to the ballot box in November? “They” must be a crowd full of folks with varied backgrounds, goals and objectives, anger, hatred, determination, and agendas. But who are “They?”

I’m not so vain as to think I know who all these players are. But isn’t it reasonable to think that there is a tremendous number of professional, organized, and structured goals and objectives somewhere in secret which dozens and maybe hundreds of pawns are heeding passed along from someone? There is too much order to what is being played out to simply be happenstance.

Let’s do this: let’s start at the bottom today and build a pyramid, first laying the bottom and largest layer of foundation stones and work our way to the top. We may not be able to get to who tops it, but I think we’ll be able to narrow the options significantly. Let’s get started.

The Stones

First, there must be a master plan. Let’s don’t complicate it; let’s just assume — and safely so — the objective of this operation is to remove Donald Trump from the presidency. No tools deemed necessary will NOT be made available. No processes are taboo in tackling that objective. It must pretty much be “anything goes.” And doesn’t that make much sense with all we’ve watched roll-out in the past four years? To make this work, the critical stones are broad bases on which the remainder of the process can safely set. Who’s first?

Congress

Nothing so difficult as removing a president could possibly be successful without significant numbers of members of Congress. After all, unseating a U.S. president must be through impeachment.

In this Congress, there has been a plethora of volunteers from even before the 2016 election, and even from the Republican Party. Who can forget the Trump hatred from the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ). “He would never participate in such a plan!” (NOTE: before we’re done, with this, you’ll be saying that quite often)

McCain has been fingered as the culprit who became the conduit for the piece of dirt used to begin this entire “removal” debacle. Former CIA Director John Brennan used McCain to pass along to the Comey FBI the unverified Steele Dossier that was used illegally to instigate the surveillance of Carter Page. McCain despised Trump.

Who else in Congress falls in line? RepresentativeS Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and at least a dozen other Democrats who were certainly part of the Hillary Clinton Dynasty that Trump’s election destroyed before it ever began. There is no doubt they all colluded, at least with each other, to coordinate the evil seed-sowing of disinformation throughout the Mueller Investigation. Even to this day Schiff maintains he had/has “uncontroverted evidence of Trump collusion with Russia to assist his victory over Clinton in 2016.”

Was this hatred sufficient to burn the fire of impeachment brightly enough to sink the Trump presidency? No, at least not so far. But it was certainly sufficient to keep the fires burning for three+ years. And in doing so, their certainty of Trump illegal activity became a plague that ran like diharrea through the American populace sowing seeds of doubt and hatred for the President.

And in the Senate, there has always been Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Schumer has a decades-old personal and business relationship with Donald Trump. And he never cared for the Queens billionaire. In addition, Schumer works in tandem with his House Master Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to corral all the Democrat senators necessary to fuel the fire of anti-Trumpism. And numerous senators stand in line in orderly fashion, confirming Schumer’s every legislative attack on this president.

Of course, Schumer NEVER instigates anything at all. Nancy tells Chuck what to do early every morning!

There are many more names that have proudly donned the banner of “Cornerstone” of the “Dump Trump” pyramid. They’re each easy to spot. They all look and sound like Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) Each time Adam Schiff breaks wind, Swalwell loudly proclaims, “Excuse Me!”

“Never-Trump” Bureaucrats

How many of these are befitting the classification with other  Cornerstones? Probably far too many for us to count. The multitude of lifetime professional D.C. bureaucrats that were holdovers from the previous administration are incalculable. But there certainly are hundreds. And it didn’t take much coaxing from the leaders of the Left to get them to fall in line with their leaders, push for a job in the Trump Administration to support the “Dump Trump” efforts.

Many showed their spots unwittingly through the Mueller Investigation that in testimonies and subpoenaed documents have been exposed. Chief among them are James Comey, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, Andy McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper, even the three generals and one admiral who last week in one concerted effort rebuffed President Trump. In doing so, each betrayed their oath to the fabric of military leadership which has always said, “If you cannot in good faith adhere to your superiors requests and leadership, your obligation is to resign your office and keep quiet.” Each betrayed their oath of service to the nation.

We could continue a laundry list of bureaucrats most of whose names you know. But you get the idea of the foundation of this pyramid. Let’s move on.

“Old” Government

Here’s a cornucopia full of well-know political names that certainly play a role. The list includes each and every leader in the Obama Administration: Comey (before), Mueller (before), Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Joe Biden, each member of Obama’s cabinet, the leaders of each of the nation’s intelligence agencies with one exception: Admiral Mike Rogers of the National Security Agency. Rogers famously and secretly visited the president-elect in Trump Tower to reportedly reveal to Mr. Trump that his campaign offices there were being surveilled by the Obama FBI. The next day Trump moved his complete operation to his country club in New Jersey.

How far back does the “Old” government go in this foundation? It certainly included John Kerry, Al Gore, and Obama’s senior staff that served him in each of his two administrations.

We’ll stop here revealing the government “mafia” that primarily are the cornerstones of the “Dump Trump” pyramid. But you get the picture. Almost without exception, Obama’s entire government had obviously prepared to pass the mantle of the “new America” Obama thought he was called to usher in to Hillary Clinton. Trump’s fault? He had but one objective for his entire political career: to as President create a good and better world for every American. In doing so, he knew he would be required to tear down the Hillary ivory tower that Obama had constructed for her. And he has.

Democrat Party

Of course, the Democrat Party leadership has successfully created an environment in which they can with their minions using their “messengers” to disseminate their talking points to their followers. Under Obama, they were kept in line with blackmail messages from the White House: “If you don’t report the way we want you to report, covering what we say needs to be covered and attacking those we say are our enemies, your access to the seat of power in the U.S. will be cutoff.”

Every Democrat operative, elected official and every wannabe Democrat candidate has not dared to buck the Party. Though the party has its own leadership, there’s no real power there. Each take their instructions from Nancy Pelosi herself. Never doubt (at least until she’s gone) that she is the power broker of the Democrat Party.

The Messengers

The balance of the tower are layer upon layer of various media pundits: radio, television, internet news sites, internet liberal talk shows, broadcast and cable mainstream news programs and news reporters, major newspapers online and in print. And this group has worked the “plan” to perfection, finding ways to coordinate with each other and the “cornerstones” listed above, and in unified daily fashion drowned the American public, not with the truth, but with the political narrative of the day, given to them by the Messengers of the Democrat Party: The Leftist Media.

We will not waste your time talking about how evil are the mainstream media outlets and reporters, editors, publishers, and anchors. You know who they are. And they all dropped any ruse of existing credibility to go public with their Trump hatred, and they are all-in for getting rid of him. After all, they MUST have unfettered political access to be able to garner at least enough credibility to sell their wares to potential advertisers!

Summary

All that remains is the pyramid headstone. I would love to be able to beat my chest and give you “a” name or “the” names of those who comprise that topper of the pyramid. I could tell you who I think those folks are, but that would make this story today too simple and you’d probably forget about it before you eat dinner tonight. This entire story needs to resonate in your mind and heart through Election Day in November! YOU must figure who is at the top.

I WILL say this: my suspicions have been published here before. Remember: when the Obamas  bought that mansion just blocks from the White House and became the only outgoing presidential family in U.S. history to stay in D.C. after leaving office, I told you “There’s some sinister intent for making that move.”

You now know my thought about just one of those pyramid “toppers.”

Who else?

Here’s your assignment: YOU cast your eyes on the political (and financial and power) landscape. I’m a researcher, but I’m the first that will always say, “I don’t know it all and I almost always miss something.”

Here’s what I’d like for you to do: write who you think the top player or players in this are, send me their names and a paragraph with your reason for your choice. I will put a post together will all responses (including only first names) so we ALL can capture a unified picture that MAY give us real comfort of who is leading the way in this attempt to destroy President Trump. But, more importantly, what they all stand for.

Remember this: President Trump has warned us for sometime, “They’re not coming for me. They’re coming for YOU.”

Believe it or not, they are confident they will get him. I’ve told you for almost four years now they would impeach him, would continue to go after him, and if he wins in November, they’ll continue to attack him nonstop until he’s gone.

By the way: they want the destruction of ALL that YOU stand for too!

Send your names of those folks via email to: Dan@TruthNewsNet.org. Make it as simple as you want. Just drop a simple email to me.

Insanity at NBC News

That probably doesn’t surprise too many of you: that anyone would say anything that can indicate any insanity at  NBC. Actually, there’s plenty there to go around! When we were preparing our story for this podcast, I found an interview with a news anchor and Chuck Todd — who is NBC’s political guru of sorts — and I was so taken aback listening to the two psychoanalyze not just President Trump, but every Republican member of Congress and every other Republican in the nation I stopped and was speechless. I thought, “I’ve got to break this idiocy down for all our TNN partners.

Because of my intense desire to show you personally just how jaded NBC News has become and just how consumed with their hatred for this president, I chose not to write the story. It’s much better and far more descriptive if I just do the audio podcast, play the interview, and stop their comments intermittently and give you MY analysis of their insanity while pointing out specifically just how they “bend” the truth to fit the narrative that is so pervasive at NBC News.

Please don’t be angry there’s no story today! Listen to the podcast. I think when you hear their mantra and my comments you’ll understand. And my hope is that we all will get to a place where anything we hear from those who have been permanently tagged as Leftist media hacks in their “reporting” are NOT given the benefit of the doubt when we hear them. Let the truth ring through their very words and expose their biases themselves.

We’ll elaborate on all this and more at 9:00 AM Central today on TNN Live. Don’t miss it!

What Should We Call It?

It’s taken over the nation in just three short months. It’s everywhere. It consumes each 24/7 news cycle, it dominates work and home atmospheres, and it’s pretty much all Americans speak about to each other. It so dominates our social and political cultures today, one would think it long ago would have been analyzed, examined for its sources and substances, and because of its detrimental results in the nation would have been eliminated. If not removed, we would have a well-devised plan in place and operation and be well on the way to its destruction.

But it’s still here. And it’s still dominating our lives. Every day we watch it consume all the oxygen in the air, choking out independence, freedom, entrepreneurship, peace, joy, what little tranquility we can find in our busy lives, and is stealing the souls of our children. It’s not religion. It’s not politics. It’s not war. It’s not even divisiveness or anger or hatred, or fear.

What is it?

It’s chaos. It’s here, it’s spreading, and it’s consuming every aspect of every American’s life. It’s dominating almost every waking hour of each of us. It even wants to take over our sleep. Its objective? The identical goal it has had since it first appeared on Earth: the destruction of all that’s good.

In the past few years, we’ve published stories about chaos. But we’ve not seen such chaos as today. Indeed, chaos has been robust and far-reaching in the past from time to time. But today, chaos has taken on a life of its own. And it’s being fed the fuel that will not only perpetuate its living with us but will enable it to grow ever more powerful and all-consuming. And as it always does, it is set on the destruction of all that oppose it.

The Message of Chaos

What’s its goal? Who owns it? Why is it growing so rapidly and consuming so wide? And the last and probably most important question is: who is its Master?

Let’s work backward in finding those answers. Who started it all?

That’s an easy one to answer for Christians: “God is not the author of confusion, but peace.” With that verse, it is simple to consider that whatever or whoever is opposite of God is whatever or whoever control confusion. That would be Satan or whatever you wish to use to call him.

The objection of chaos can never be for any positive purpose. It has always been divisive by its nature. It never calls on unity or peaceful communication or purposeful finding ways to dissolve the confusion it creates. It feeds on anger and spitefulness, hatred, and meism. It is controlled by those who choose to weaponize it for causes to divide and separate people who it targets. Those have found ways to take ownership of that process and to enhance the damage it creates. Chaos draws its power from the selfishness of human nature — the lust for power and control over others. Chaos, by its nature, exists to permanently destroy all that is good.

Chaos’ master is Evil. And its taskmasters are all those who use it as a weapon of destruction for their perceived enemies.

2020 U.S. Chaos

It began with the impeachment of Donald Trump. The chaos narrative that was built for that project was created on a bundle of lies, misinformation, lying, cheating, and the demonization of some really good and honest people.

The Second Chapter of “2020 Chaos” was an artificial pandemic that was introduced to the United States by a group of medical experts.  They demanded the undying respect and obedience of every American to introduce and implement not real methods to tackle a new disease — which COVID-19 is — but to intimidate Americans with the continuous use of the fear of the unknown to in three short months destroy the American economy while calling on the messages emanating from American elitists who were given credibility by those around them because “they are experts, and we MUST listen to the experts.”

In full disclosure, I know COVID-19 is a disastrous disease and never have and will never denigrate that fact. But it is a manageable disease that, even with all of the purposeful mystery around it, will NOT destroy the United States. And it certainly does NOT warrant the chaos that has resulted from the non-factual facts that have been shoved down the throats of the nation. What it accomplished was to put Americans’ immunity systems in a pause because of the universal lockdown forced on the people by these elitists that have prevented us from normal interactions, which are mandatory for our bodies to protect themselves against bacterial and viral foes that permeate our atmosphere 24/7.

The Third Chapter of “2020 Chaos” is sowed racial unrest that was seeded by the horrendous act of four Minneapolis police in the George Floyd killing. After that atrocity, activists from dozens of known and unknown groups have pulled out the dog whistles of chaos and ordered demonstration and protests that seemingly and purposely often morph into looting and rioting. Those have all erupted into mass devastation and even death at the hands of other humans.

The Messengers of 2020 Chaos

Need I say? There could be NO better trained, NO better armed, NO one angrier than the Mainstream Media. They’ve had years to practice and to perfect their purpose. In those years, they’ve bowed to new taskmasters in politics who promised them horror stories about their opponents, nonstop camera and satellite news coverage of their riots, 24/7 coverage that aggressively identifies while demonizing the “supposed” foes of the partners of the Mainstream Media.

The truth? It matters little to the Media Mob. They see their foes limping and even bleeding a bit. Just like rabid dogs that the bleeding has stoked their hunger to finish their foes, no matter the cost and no matter what that “finish” might be. All that is relevant to them is a victory at the cost of all who they determine are on “the other side.”

Never mind how much destruction results from this chaos. Forget about the cost for it all that can never be recovered. Forget about what of the fiber of this nation that gives us our identities will be devoured and lost forever. All that matters is “The Win.” No price is too much; no cost is too high, no wrong is too wrong, no pain hurts too much.

Don’t doubt about this revelation. Here, I’ll let someone else paint a more definitive picture:

“We can seek out media that is well-sourced and informative.” That MUST be a requirement that not only do we adopt ourselves, but we teach our children the same things. If we do not pour into their malleable minds the truths in our world, their basis of reason will be established by others with whom they interact: like liberal teachers in our schools and universities and on YouTube, Snap Chat and Twitter posts, and what they see and hear in video games.

Who can turn down the chaos? Only ME, and only YOU.

Advice? Turn down the media. Moderate your own chaos. Stop letting agendas of others to whom you watch, listen, and read determine your state of mind. Be an individual — a thoughtful, deliberate, and conscientious decision-maker. Do that, and you’ll see your chaos meter go way down quickly.

Hurry up and do that! You’re going to need to get as low as possible. Why? I don’t think the chaos around us is going to go away anytime soon.

Racism and “We, the People”

Here’s what I have not heard through the years in discussions of Racism: “What will it take to end it?” In this latest spate of racial discord, I’ve struggled desperately to unearth the answer to that question. I’m 66 years old, and I grew up in the South. I don’t remember ever hearing an answer to that from any leaders of any kind in the U.S. Why is that?

It seems logical to me that in the greatest and most prosperous country on Earth, there should be a groundswell of support to tackle Racism and to rid its existence in our country. Call me an optimist, call me a dreamer, call me a fool, but I think it can be done. But what would such a process look like? Who would have to be involved? Who would be in charge of identifying all of the things necessary to implement, how, and when they should be put in place, and who would determine all of the intricacies of that process?

Those questions are tough ones. I think the determination of those might individually be more robust than the process itself. But I’m going to take a stab at it.

Although I doubt any single person understands the totality of what such a daunting task will entail, I do feel there are collectively enough Americans who could together master a plan to eliminate this scourge of humanity. IF all the pieces were identified, debated, discussed, agreed to, and then put in place, it could be achieved.

Who?

At first thought, we would generally look to the government for guidance for a process this massive. The government has the resources of every type necessary for such big tasks. But I think this process is too big for the Government to manage. I think it should be attacked by the People. But who are the People that should drive this? In what timetable should we realistically expect to “get ‘er done?

I’ll answer those questions the only way I know how: “If not Me, then Who? If not now, then When?”

“Who” Requirements

Let’s face it: the government has, for a couple of centuries, been in charge of responding to the will of the American people to put the necessary infrastructure in place for the smooth operations of our country. Our forefathers structured that and then empowered through the U.S. Constitution for the People to control the “Who” in creating and operating our government. Sadly, however, much of the substance of the massive job of establishment and operation of the government has been relegated to a few. Sadder is the fact that the few have often been caught up in the power and control that comes with the job.

The government has ceased to be “Of the People, By the People, and For the People.” It’s at some point morphed into “Control of the People.”

At this point in our history, if we genuinely want to tackle the systemic problem of Racism, the government MUST be returned to the People. There are those who might argue that it is that today. However, if Americans carefully examine what that process is today, it is nothing as structured when the Constitution was penned.

Yes, the People elect Senators, Representatives, and the President and Vice President. Yes, Congress is the institution that, in representing us debates, revises, then sends to the President jointly approved measures to be signed into law. But that process has become so cluttered, so bloated, so unreasonable that most of the details of each law no longer come from the People but the legislators themselves. That must stop!

To that end, it seems reasonable to entrust the formation of this attack to the People rather than to Congress.

“How can that possibly be achieved? Constitutionally, Congress makes the laws. To change that would require at least one Constitutional amendment, and that is an almost insurmountable task.”

It will be a formidable task with formidable headaches, roadblocks, attacks, and specific revisions. But the American People have faced hard times, very tough foes, and egregious threats to our country. In each of these, the People have always prevailed. Why could the People not achieve that again?

The “Who” Structure

Let’s start with a concept today and build from there. That seems simple enough!

  • We have 50 states full of U.S. citizens. No two states or the Americans living within are identical. Diversity is everywhere, and that’s a good thing! Let’s make this process a 50-state group of “citizen representatives.”
  • Each of the states will select via an election ten citizens to represent their state in this battle against Racism.
  • None of those from any state can be an elected official at any level of government, a known activist member of any political group formal or informal, and will agree to receive NO compensation of any kind other than necessary direct travel and direct expenses as approved by the “Representatives,” but NOT to exceed direct expenses.
  • Each state group will meet and designate two of its elected members to serve on a national Racism Board. That Board will choose a group of five members to serve as the Executive team to initiate all actions approved by the Racism Board and the Citizen Representatives.
  • Representatives will immediately begin discussions (format to be determined) of how during a period of no longer than one year prepare a template for all Representatives to use to systematically address measures necessary to identify, plan for, and eliminate each revealed element of Racism currently living in the U.S.
  • For the purposes of time, the Racism Board will quarterly prepare and release to the general public a status report of the progress made in the development of this template.

The Template

What should be included in this template? Most will agree that it should be simple to identify the various areas in life in the U.S. in which racism exists. Those would certainly be included as well as others that will be identified through this entire process. What will certainly be a tougher task will be to determine the proper and realistic measures necessary to eliminate as many of these elements of racism once identified. To that end, it seems to be prudent to open this process up at this point to the total of each state’s representatives for discussion within their own group, followed by an electronic meeting (internet streaming seems realistic for that task) to update each state’s representatives’ findings with the entire Citizen Representative group.

In planning and the implementation of a timeline for this process, it seems prudent to pick a future target date for the completion of this entire process and work backward from there in the determination of each segment’s timing. However, the People of the United States will want to know the progress stage by stage, summaries of elements approved stage by stage and an expected completion date. Setting the date for the ultimate completion will be difficult. But in the nation’s glaring racial tensions we should all be aggressive at moving forward quickly. Two to three years will be a daunting task for completion. But if all involved will commit to that end AND all measures necessary to get there together, it CAN be achieved.

Summary

Before you scream at me about this, It CAN be achieved! It will take the incredible commitments of Americans of every race, every state, from every level of economic status and age group.

“Why not just let the government handle this? After all, they are already together with a complete structure conducive to the fulfillment of this task. Why complicate the process by starting from scratch?”

Why? The government has not done it! And Racism continues to expand and consume the bandwidth of freedom this nation needs to propel its citizens into a new and positive era of American history.

“What authority do YOU have to initiate such a process as this?” None. No one has asked me to do anything like this. I have not spoken to anyone about a process like this. I personally would love to initiate this process so that my grandchildren will face what if any of this enormous task remains when they take over my spot with a plan that has started the process, worked it into existence and revised as necessary to guarantee THEIR children that they will not be forced to face the evil of Racism because our generation did not act!

“If not Me, then Who? If not now, then When?”

This is just the beginning. I invite you to join me today from 9:00 AM until 10:00 AM Central for TNN Live streaming online from this site: www.TruthNewsNet.org. For one hour, we will discuss this process. And I will quieten, open up the phone lines and listen to YOU discuss your thoughts, your ideas, your questions, and your suggestions.

We will NOT resolve anything today! But what we WILL do is begin a conversation that is pointed at the accomplishment of one thing and one thing only: Destroy Racism in America.

How do you join in the conversation? At the top of the web page of the site, there’s a later blue banner that says “LIVE NOW: click to listen.” When you click that link, it will take you right to our show. You will be able to call toll-free at any time: 866-378-7884, or 866-37TRUTH.

We’ll probably have a busy phone. When you call if it keeps ringing, we’re talking live. Please call back in a minute or two. If it rings busy, the same is true.

To make this work, we MUST get started. To get started, we MUST hear from you.

We have tens of thousands of partners with us and join our daily broadcast. However, this is the time we ALL need to engage in the conversation. Do we have the answers? Nope. But we DO have suggestions just as you should. Engage with us during this process. We hope it will be a process in which thousands join. What will it look like at the end of the day? It will look just like what you, me, and other Americans want it to look like: hopefully to create a successful banishment of Racism.
