TRUMP HAS ALREADY WON, WHATEVER THE ELECTION RESULTS

Trump’s Already Won

A consequential presidency has enabled peace and prosperity.

By Maria Bartiromo and James Freeman   October 31, 2020

Win or lose, America’s 45th president deserves credit for a more competitive economy, a nation at peace and a secure rule of law. Donald Trump doesn’t trample Americans’ rights. He doesn’t start wars; he ends them. And he makes comments that offend people. The cost of supporting Mr. Trump is enduring awkward moments when he says things that presidents shouldn’t say. The benefit is that he champions U.S. liberty and prosperity, and a thriving America is a benefit to the world.

It may seem obvious that a president should prioritize the interests of his country. But when Mr. Trump arrived in Washington, too many politicians seemed to view America as one of the world’s problems. Barack Obama began his presidency with a series of overseas speeches in which he described American flaws. In 2016 he visited communist Cuba where he noted that the U.S. had once sought to “exert control” over the country. Many suffering Cubans wish that we’d succeeded.

Mr. Trump doesn’t apologize for America. When it comes to foreign relations, he thinks that in many ways the U.S. has been too nice. But he also brought the nicest news to the Middle East in decades, a series of historic peace agreements between Israel and its Arab neighbors. In contrast with the expansive ambitions of the Bush era and the apologetic retreats of Obama days, Mr. Trump leads an America that is ready but not eager for war and that encourages former foes to engage in peaceful commerce.

The pursuit of commercial vitality at home has defined his presidency, as it defined his unconventional candidacy. “Is Donald Trump Serious?” asked a New York Times headline in September 2015. A columnist mocked him for seeking to sharply reduce the tax on corporate profits. The real mockery was the damage the levy inflicted. When combined with state and local taxes, the tax rate on corporate income amounted to nearly 40%, the highest in the industrialized world. U.S. companies were fleeing for business-friendly countries.

In 2017 Mr. Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which reduced the top federal corporate tax to 21% from 35%. The law triggered an increase in business investment and a surge of optimism among employers, which turned out well for employees. The Trump economy was characterized by historically low unemployment rates, massive job openings, and rising wages for low- and middle-income workers. The Covid pandemic and shutdowns wrought historic economic destruction, but it’s now being followed by a historic rebound.

VIDEO – A RALLY OF PEOPLE ORIGINALLY  FROM  MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AND RACES AT A TRUMP RALLY STATING WHY THEY ARE VOTING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP 

You Don’t Have to be WHITE to VOTE for President TRUMP 2020
Pass this video on. We follow President Trump wherever he goes on the campaign trail. And there’s something we’ve noticed a lot more of lately: a growing number of minorities are choosing to leave the Democratic Party to support President Trump. Blacks for Trump, Latinos for Trump, Muslims for Trump, Sikhs for Trump, LGBT for Trump, Amish for Trump, Hindus for Trump, Asians for Trump. You name it. “We’re fighting to give every American — all over the country, every single American — a future of dignity and purpose and of pride.” – President Donald J. Trump

SOCIALISM: AFTER STATUE TOPPLING-COMES BOOK BURNING

Sunday, October 4th, 2020

 

Socialism: After Statue Toppling – Comes Book Burning

Wednesday, July 8, 2020   by Robert B. Charles
 Robert B Charles served in the Reagan  and Bush 41 White Houses, as Assistant Secretary of State under Colin Powell, and counsel to the US House National Security subcommittee for five years; a former litigator, he taught law at Harvard University’s Extension School, recently authored “Eagles and Evergreens” (2018) and consults in Washington, DC.

In 1953, science fiction writer Ray Bradbury released “Fahrenheit 451.”  The book was a hit, and scary.  The story describes a society determined to erase history, intent on burning books. Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns.  The author’s fear – at that time – was America might someday tip that way.  Although no longer alive, one wonders what Bradbury would say about where we are.

In truth, attempts to erase history – such as recent destruction of historic statues across America – are almost always the work of socialists, communists, fascists, or fiction writers.  The common point among socialists, communists and fascists is total control.  Of course, fiction authors also have total control.

What Americans must remember is that our world is real, and at risk.  America is under attack, from within – the idea of radical socialism is noxious.  It is anti-freedom, antithetical, anti-American.  The Soviets, Chinese, and Nazis all sought to erase history – and accompanied their statue toppling and church burning, with mob mayhem, intimidation, coercion, killing, and book burning.

Some may say, that cannot be so, or think progression from a free state to coerced, socialist or fascist is slow.  They may doubt that any society would make such radical turn, but history is our teacher.

Russia fell to Soviet dominance fast – over in six years, 1917 to 1923, foreshadowed by events in 1905.  The people of Soviet Russia and contiguous countries suffered tens of millions of deaths from communism – only escaping 70 years later, with the help of an American president named Reagan, British prime minister named Thatcher and, and Polish Pope named John Paul II.

In Soviet Russia, after destroying pre-revolutionary statues, churches and culture, Soviets burned books, then killed those found with such material – causing citizens to burn their own books.

BERNIE REWRITES CUBAN HISTORY

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

 

 THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Bernie Rewrites Cuban History

He lamely concedes that the regime is ‘authoritarian.’ No, it’s totalitarian.

By Mary Anastasia O’Grady   March 1, 2020

Many Americans were offended by Sen. Bernie Sanders’s recent praise of Fidel Castro. Perhaps gratitude is in order instead. By candidly sharing his opinion of Cuba, Mr. Sanders exposes the depth of his socialist views.

Mr. Sanders’s enthusiastic support for the Socialist Workers Party in the 1980s is well documented, as is his endorsement of Castro and Nicaraguan Sandinista Daniel Ortega, both of whom were Soviet pawns during the Cold War. On CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Feb. 23 we learned that Bernie’s ideology hasn’t changed much since he was advocating for tyranny in his youth.

Interviewer Anderson Cooper played a film clip from the 1980s in which Mr. Sanders explains why Cubans didn’t side with the U.S. against Castro: Because he “educated the kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society.” To Mr. Cooper, he said: “When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing, even though Fidel Castro did it?”

In fact, according to the late historian Hugh Thomas, Cuban literacy was already around 80% in 1958, making it the fourth most literate country in Latin America, in keeping with a relatively prosperous economy. Mr. Sanders’s claims about a “popular” revolution are also guff. A good part of the Cuban population resisted the Communist takeover of the island, and Castro’s gun-toting buddies met that resistance with deadly violence.

Immediately after dictator Fulgencio Batista fled, Fidel and his henchmen began executing policemen and soldiers without trials in a campaign of terror. Cuba Archive, a nongovernmental organization that documents deaths during the revolution, counts 1,003 firing-squad executions in 1959.

The slaughter didn’t end there. Castro turned on his allies, targeting those he suspected of being against his one-man takeover. Cuba Archive has documented another 1,862 executions from 1960-67 and 816 combat deaths.

THE REAL CUBA IS A LAND OF EXTREME DEPRIVATION

Saturday, February 29th, 2020

The Real Cuba Is a Land of Extreme Deprivation

Families were overjoyed when my church group brought children’s Tylenol and cheap reading glasses.

By Andy Laperriere  Mr. Laperriere is a partner at Cornerstone Macro
.  February 28, 2020

I’ve been to Cuba twice with my church, which has been organizing trips for almost 20 years. It’s astonishing some people still cling to a romanticized version of Cuban life under communism. It bears no resemblance to reality.

On these visits, in 2006 and 2007, my fellow travelers and I brought two suitcases, one for our clothes and another for the things we gave away to Cuban churches and our translators. We loaded up on basic medications, especially prenatal vitamins and children’s Tylenol, which Cuban children would otherwise go without.

We bought dozens of pairs of inexpensive reading glasses—the kind Americans can find at the pharmacy for a couple of dollars. Older Cubans sometimes cried when I gave them these glasses, which restored their ability to read.

I can’t say I conducted a study of the Cuban health-care system, but I’ll go out on limb and suggest that people who don’t have children’s Tylenol and cheap reading glasses probably aren’t getting world-class medical care.

Another striking feature of Cuba is the pervasive idleness. Everywhere you look, people are standing around. They aren’t working, because they get paid almost nothing. The old Soviet joke “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work” sums it up. Most people have informal jobs to supplement their incomes, but this is still strictly limited by the government and thus kept underground.

When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history.

THE ROOTS OF AMERICA’S DANGEROUS TURN TO THE LEFT

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

 

This article  will help you to understand the history behind  how the Far Left has been able to take control of the Democrat Party and what their goals are for our country.     It is a fascinating read .   Nancy

www.thetrumpet.com/13314-the-roots-of-americas-dangerous-turn-left

To understand where the radical left plans to take America, you must understand the source of its ideas. We have been warning America about this for over 50 years!
FROM THE JANUARY 2016       TRUMPET PRINT EDITION

America is in serious decline. Many Americans are deeply concerned. The radical left has gained control of the nation. Look at the Democratic Party today: Its leading personalities promote policies that are weakening the nation economically, socially, morally, militarily and geopolitically. How did they get control? What caused this nation to descend into this condition?

You need to understand what has happened inside this country and why. The problem is far deeper, and has been going on for far longer, than most people realize.

During the Cold War, there was a lot of fear within America about the spread of communism. Today, most Americans no longer consider it a threat of any concern.

But it is of grave concern. Few people realize it, but many mainstream political views in America today are identical to—and trace directly back to—the ideals and beliefs of communism.

One popular candidate running for the Democratic presidential nomination claims to be a socialist. Well, many Communists call themselves socialists. The fact that he has so much support reveals how dangerously ignorant the American people are.

What do you know about communism? A growing number of Americans support the government taking over health care and other major segments of the national economy. They fail to understand the dangers that accompany a Communist system.

Understanding Communism

Socialism and communism are alike in fundamental ways. Both say the centralized government or “the public” should own and control production, rather than individual business owners. Both call for centralized planning and control, which make for powerful governments that are highly susceptible to corruption. Socialism is considered the transition stage from capitalism to communism; in some cases, it is a less radical version that might eventually “mature” into communism.
