When President Obama cares about any incident in America, he’ll step right up to a mic and camera to tell the nation his opinion. He’s done it many times, sometimes only hours after a complicated incident has occurred where next to nothing conclusive is yet known – such as the 2014 Ferguson, MO attack on a policeman by thug Michael Brown the president mistakenly attributed to racist police brutality.
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.
The Left, both in United States and internationally, has a very long history of trying to influence elections through illegal means. Fortunately for America the Left has not historically been strong enough to work their voodoo here. But unfortunately for America the Left has been gaining in strength significantly in the early 21st century. We already have frightening evidence that in November’s elections the Left intends to pull out all the stops they can to ensure Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the country continues unabated.
“Systemic” racism in America – that is, racism built into the system and thus dispensing injustice by default – is a fact-starved obsession with the Left as well as with ordinary, decent people who happen to be susceptible to the Left’s compassionate sounding lies. Yes, white racism against black people in America does exist and it is still a problem. Black racism against Jews is also real and is still a problem, as are various other brands of racism. But the idea that America is somehow peculiarly racist, inherently or institutionally, is only true in one place: Leftist-designed quota systems to ensure certain races are entitled to things that other races are not.
Wherever the world is going, it seems to be getting there faster than it was five years ago and much faster than it was ten years ago. But where are we heading to? Many observers of current events have ideas and predictions, but Matthew Bracken, author of Enemies Foreign and Domestic, has one of the most interesting takes of all.
Veteran British environmental journalist and author of “Watermelons”, James Delingpole, has a tagline that he’s right about everything. Certainly on the issue of Climate Change, he’s shown over the years that he understands what’s going on pretty well.
