ELECTORAL COLLEGE STATISTICS – WHY TRUMP WON

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

 

 www.allenbwest.com/2016/11/29/numbers-shut-liberals-electoral-college/

 

These are very interesting statistics concerning the electoral college presented by Allen West. The purpose of the college is to insure that each state is fairly represented.

 

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

There are 62 counties in New York State.

Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won lRichmond)

Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.

When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our countryJY

VIDEO – THE CONSTITUTION SONG – SUNG BY CHILDREN !

Friday, September 1st, 2017

 

What a great way to teach children about our founding values      Enjoy  !

The Constitution Song

“We the People” is a song about the Constitution of The United States of America sung by third graders and a fifth-grade rapper. In this music video, they sing the Preamble to the Constitution in celebration of Constitution Day on September 17th of each year. This song was composed and produced by Sandy Wilbur who is working to help kids in grades K-8 learn history through music. I hope that this song helps people to remember that we are one nation of people who share the same fundamental values.

August 15, 2017  Tucker Carlson’s Thoughts.  Slavery is undoubtedly evil.  But remember George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and 41 of the 56 people who signed the Declaration of Independence owned slaves.  Should we no longer preserve our institutions and just dismiss them as evil?

THE TYRANNY OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Tyranny of the Administrative State

Government by unelected experts isn’t all that different from the ‘royal prerogative’ of 17th-century England, argues constitutional scholar Philip Hamburger.

New York

What’s the greatest threat to liberty in America? Liberals rail at Donald Trump’s executive orders on immigration and his hostility toward the press, while conservatives vow to reverse Barack Obama’s regulatory assault on religion, education and business. Philip Hamburger says both sides are thinking too small.

Like the blind men in the fable who try to describe an elephant by feeling different parts of its body, they’re not perceiving the whole problem: the enormous rogue beast known as the administrative state.

Sometimes called the regulatory state or the deep state, it is a government within the government, run by the president and the dozens of federal agencies that assume powers once claimed only by kings. In place of royal decrees, they issue rules and send out “guidance” letters like the one from an Education Department official in 2011 that stripped college students of due process when accused of sexual misconduct.

Unelected bureaucrats not only write their own laws, they also interpret these laws and enforce them in their own courts with their own judges. All this is in blatant violation of the Constitution, says Mr. Hamburger, 60, a constitutional scholar and winner of the Manhattan Institute’s Hayek Prize last year for his scholarly 2014 book, “Is Administrative Law Unlawful?” (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

“Essentially, much of the Bill of Rights has been gutted,” he says, sitting in his office at Columbia Law School. “The government can choose to proceed against you in a trial in court with constitutional processes, or it can use an administrative proceeding where you don’t have the right to be heard by a real judge or a jury and you don’t have the full due process of law. Our fundamental procedural freedoms, which once were guarantees, have become mere options.” ​

In volume and complexity, the edicts from federal agencies exceed the laws passed by Congress by orders of magnitude. “The administrative state has become the government’s predominant mode of contact with citizens,” Mr. Hamburger says. “Ultimately this is not about the politics of left or right. Unlawful government power should worry everybody.”

RACIAL INDOCTRINATION DAY AT CHICAGO SCHOOL

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

It’s Racial Indoctrination Day at an Upscale Chicagoland School

As administrators foist ‘social justice’ on 4,000 suburban students, parents plead for balance.

What passes for education at many American public schools is too often closer to indoctrination. Consider the seminar day that New Trier High School, in Winnetka, Ill., on Chicago’s affluent North Shore, is planning for Feb. 28.

The title for the all-school seminar is “Understanding Today’s Struggle for Racial Civil Rights.” That very term, “racial civil rights,” is misleading, since civil rights protect Americans’ freedoms regardless of their race. Judging from the roster of scheduled events, the seminar might be more accurately titled “Inculcating a Progressive View of Social Justice.”

Here are a few of the offerings scheduled for presentation to New Trier’s roughly 4,000 students: “SPENT: A Simulation to See How Long You Can Survive on Minimum Wage”—which touches on race at best tangentially. “Developing a Positive, Accountable White Activism for Racial Civil Rights”—which promotes a divisive view of race as a primordial fact, the essence of identity, a bright line between oppressed and oppressor. “One Person One Vote: Can the Voting Rights Act Be Saved?”—which absurdly suggests that the Voting Rights Act is at risk of being repealed.

There are plenty of sessions on the connections that music, art and culture have with civil rights. Very little programming, however, is devoted to actually explaining to students what civil rights are and what their place is in this country’s political tradition.

Yet the continuing quest to fulfill America’s founding promise is unintelligible without a grasp of how civil rights are grounded in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Or without an understanding of the often-heroic struggle for civil rights over the course of American history—the abolition movement, the Civil War, the great Reconstruction constitutional amendments, the grievous setback of Jim Crow, the modern civil-rights movement, the landmark Supreme Court cases like Brown v. Board of Education.

VIDEO – SOCIALISM VS CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES – NANCY SCHULZE

Friday, October 21st, 2016

 

Nancy Schulze was the guest speaker at the Chapel Hill Republican Women’s luncheon on September 16.  She spoke on the Secular Left’s very successful attempts over the last 50 years  to weaken our nation by destabilizing our families, indoctrinating our youth, weakening our respect for law enforcement (Black Lives Matter), and questioning our Christian foundation.  She points out that our young people have a higher opinion of socialism than free enterprise which resulted in the young being attracted to Bernie Sanders, an avowed Democrat Socialist. 
Today, almost 60% of our federal budget goes to entitlements and welfare which has weakened and destabilized our families.  Nancy points out that 80% of all prisoners come from fatherless families.  The unwed birthrate of  women 30 and younger is 64%.  She claims our country is  not at a crossroads, we are falling off a cliff !  
As Nancy points out in the video, how often have we heard the left say, “This is not who we are as Americans”  when criticizing us as bigots and racists.  This is their attempt to redefine who we are as Americans and Nancy’s talk stresses that we need to talk about who we are and what has  been the successful foundation of our country dating back to our founders.   
Please click on the youtube link below to view the video of Nancy Schulze’s talk on Socialism versus Constitutional Principles.

Nancy Schulze is the Founder of the Congressional Wives Speakers in Washington, D.C. and co-founder with Vonette Bright of the American Prayer Initiative (AmericanPrayerInitiative.org).  She is married to the former  nine term Congresssman Dick Schulze from Pennsylvania.

 Conservative Heroes: Fourteen Leaders Who Shaped America, from Jefferson to Reagan
BOOK REVIEW – CONSERVATIVE HEROES BY GARLAND TUCKER III

Profiles in Conservative Courage

Conservatism in America, as one early-twentieth-century politician said, is “as old as the Republic itself.” But what are its foundational principles, and how did they form the modern conservative movement?

Author Garland S. Tucker III tells the story in this lively look at fourteen champions of conservative thought—some well known, others hardly remembered at all. Taking readers on an exciting tour from the American Founding to the modern era, Tucker traces the development of conservatism’s basic tenets and shows how leaders put principle into action (some more successfully than others).

Conservative Heroes offers brief but penetrating profiles of:

  • The Founders who agreed on the two primary purposes of government—but differed on how best to achieve the balance between them
  • The pair of nineteenth-century congressional leaders who fought to preserve the founding vision of a limited national government
  • The towering statesman whose defense of slavery has obscured his considerable contributions to American constitutional history
  • The last Democratic president to advance conservative principles
  • The president and treasury secretary who together reduced taxes and the size of the federal government—and sparked an economic boom
  • The forgotten leaders, both Democrats, who spearheaded the conservative challenge to FDR’s New Deal (more…)
