For white people, America was a land of republican liberty and equality, a giant breath of fresh air from the suffocating hierarchies of Europe. It was also a violently racist society that saw Black people as chattels or nuisances and left no room for Indigenous nations.
Georgia’s governor put it this way as his state seceded from the Union in 1861: Under slavery, even the poorest farmer “belongs to the only true aristocracy, the race of white men.” The United States remained a haven for many millions of Europeans, while Black people did not even gain du jour citizenship until the 1960s.
Racism aside, the most striking thing about the 1841 vote on western lands was its assumption that all white men deserved to own property. Most Americans embraced this ideal because it spread power widely through society, enabling every white man to be his own boss.
The dream was real enough until the late 1800s, when family farming collapsed and huge new corporations took over much of the economy. The percentage of men who were self-employed plummeted through the early 1900s, stoking bitter class struggles that only calmed with the post-Second World War boom.
America’s weak safety net makes workers even more fearful of losing their jobs. Even though they make up a tiny fraction of the population, bosses thus wield enormous clout over everyday life.
In office, he’s slashed taxes on businesses and the wealthy along with health, safety and environmental regulations. The deaths of nearly 170,000 Americans to COVID-19 won’t change that, in part because the victims are disproportionately Black, Indigenous, people of color and poorer workers.
Henry Olsen, a scholar from the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C., has a well-deserved reputation for on-target analysis on politics and elections. Olsen just published a column in the Washington Post titled Trump may be down, but he is not out.
The bottom has fallen out of President Donald Trump's approval ratings. According to Olsen, by conventional analysis, the outlook for a Trump victory in November is not good.
Voters will ask in November, “Is America greater today than four years ago?” Another new Gallup poll shows the percentage of Americans saying they are “extremely” or “very” proud of their country is the lowest ever, at 63%.
A sharp economic recovery and easing of racial tensions can produce a bounce-back for Trump like he has seen in the past. What motivated voters to go Republican in 2016 and swing six blue states red was the Make America Great Again message: freedom in the marketplace and draining the swamp in Washington.
National debt now stands at 110% of our gross domestic product -- the highest since World War II. It will be easy to go down the alternative road, where the nation's left would like to take us -- institutionalizing the massive surge of government to deal with COVID-19 and more government-mandated diversity as the answer to racial tensions.
This will bog us down with socialism and slow growth, hurting the very people we supposedly want to help. The candidate who conveys to voters a sense that America's future will be defined by freedom, and a rule of law that respects the humanity of all and is carried out fairly and equally, is the candidate America's majority will choose.
Star Parker is president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education and author of the new book “Necessary Noise: How Donald Trump Inflames the Culture War and Why This is Good News for America.” We’ve entered the “everything’s bad” phase of this no-good, terrible year.
It appears that the great theft of the presidency is upon us as Pennsylvania and Georgia are in the process of declaring Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election. And while that seems bad enough, my worst fears are poised to come true.
And that’s part of “the plan.” No, I’m not talking about some QAnon “trust the plan” theory in which the President is playing 4-D chess by putting watermarks on ballots to expose the Democrats. All the while, mainstream media, Big Tech, every Democrat, a good chunk of Republicans, foreign leaders, and especially the Deep State are calling on President Trump to accept the results.
They’ll claim there’s no evidence of voter fraud, or at least not enough to have swayed the election. But in what will be painted as a questionable decision, the Supreme Court sides with the campaign and throws out just enough ballots to declared President Trump the winner.
But it will also mark the beginning of the next part of the evil plan, which is to spark open revolution in the United States. It’s won’t be the type of civil war we read about from the 19th century.
It will be major cities and small towns overrun by masses of people driven by the spirit of antichrist. At the very least, it will be a fracturing moment that will bring very disastrous times to the United States.
Well, yes, but the clumsiness by which they’ve stolen this election tells us things didn’t go as they planned… or at least how they were told it was planned. Then, we look at how mainstream media and Big Tech were conditioning us to not be able to question the results.
For at least two months we’ve been told that the blue wave was coming and that we won’t be able to spread “lies” to the contrary. The Hunter Biden laptop was unleashed, and they were caught partially off guard.
In my theory, even this was part of the machinations of the powers and principalities to make force an uncomfortable amount of cheating by the left. They were going in thinking they had to simply make sure Biden was over the top in a handful of key states.
The Hunter situation made it much harder for them to achieve their goals. It forced them to get sloppy, to manufacture 5-15 million votes instead of the few hundred thousand they anticipated.
First and foremost, now is the time for believers in the Bible to secure our faith, as it will be tested. If it’s God’s will that we are to crumble, then we know the end times are here, and we can look forward to the King’s nearing return.
The end goal of the radical left was never to elect Joe Biden. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so know I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at Not Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth.
We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly.
We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary.
We’re heading in the right direction, and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. To base this decision on network vote totals and projections and to call Biden the president-elect is irresponsible.
The networks currently give Trump 214 electorate voters (270 is the victory level). Trump has likewise led in North Carolina (15 votes) all week and his margin of 75,000 has not diminished.
Like Alaska, the media will not call it for Trump to promote the illusion of a Biden victory. Is fully counted, it will go through a recount subject to the pro- Trump bias identified in point 2.
Like Arizona, Trump may still win the count and, if not, would have a very good chance of prevailing in the recount. Given the facts enumerated earlier, there is a very good chance Trump will carry Wisconsin.
The number of late arriving ballots likely far exceeds this total (the state has not published this information). Justice Alioth and a Court majority may throw out the late ballots, likely delivering the state to Trump.
Additionally, for the reasons stated above, a recanvass is likely to give Trump a decisive advantage. And remember, four Justices wanted to reconsider whether to allow late ballots entirely but the high court deadlocked 4-4.
Now with Justice Barrett in the mix it may take a different view, particularly IFF the presidency hangs in the balance. The Pennsylvania State Legislature, solidly in Republican hands (both houses) may choose to demand a recount before appointing electors.
Already, the leader of the State Senate in Pennsylvania and the Speaker of the State Assembly have held a press conference announcing their intention to “audit” the vote counting process.
