Election Exposed Seismic Ideological Rift that Threatens America’s Future

The run-ups to and consequential results of the 2020 elections reveal a country that is disturbingly polarized around fundamentally different socialist versus capitalist visions of America’s foundational institutions and core guiding principles.
Nevertheless, there were some encouraging signs after all.
For one, it demonstrated that boatloads of Soros, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley funding targeted on perceived vital vulnerable congressional seats didn’t hit their casualty marks.
Republican control of the Senate held fast against negative media advertisement blitzkriegs launched against Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Susan Collins of Main, Iowa’s Joni Ernst, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
Democrats reportedly raised a staggering $130 million in support of Sen. Graham’s opponent Jaime Harrison, a new fundraising record for any Senate candidate, and a losing one even with that.
My home state of Texas held out against an onerous onslaught of spending to defeat the president and U.S. congressional contenders. Sen. John Cornyn successfully defended his flank from a heavily-funded challenge by M.J. Hegar, as did five Republican House incumbents from deep-pocket Democratic rivals.

The election demonstrated that monumentally massive money spent on Democratic congressional candidates were clearly no match for historically large and energized turnouts of marathon Trump rallies.

Mainstream pollsters who predicted that Republicans would likely lose Senate control along with as many as 20 House seats got it terribly wrong. As things now stand, the GOP can expect to keep a Senate majority, and also likely gain at least six net representatives…possibly up to a dozen.
The core neo-Marxist progressive tenet that divides aggrieved like-thinking identity groups into stereotypically racial and national origin categories was disproven from coast to coast.
Despite all attempts to brand President Trump as a racist, he received a growing number of votes from black men this year over 2016, while former Vice President Biden receive two points fewer than Hillary’s 82%.
According to NBC News, about 26% of black men with high school diplomas or less supported Trump, along with 22% with bachelor’s degrees, and 20% with advanced degrees.
In South Texas’s 95% Mexican-American Zapata County, whereas Hillary won by 33% points in 2016 – Trump won by 52% this time.  In Webb County, Trump won 36.6% of the vote, up from 22.8% in 2016.
Florida’s Miami-Dade County delivered Trump a nearly 40% strongly anti-Socialist Cuban-American vote margin over Biden. The president is also believed to have performed very well with Puerto Rican voters in Osceola County near Orlando.
Deep and wide ideological demographic divisions separate metropolitan versus small-town America, most particularly between those in Democratic coastal and Republican central battleground stronghold states, counties, and municipalities. Overall, most red and blue 2016 electoral map colors only darkened.
Disparate optimism projections could hardly be more divergent. Regarding coronavirus campaign narratives, compare Joe Biden’s “dark winter” economic and social shut-down messaging and Trump’s “future never greater” promises.

Contemplate being asked to accept the oxymoron of “overwhelmingly peaceful riots,” while ignoring public buildings in flames, looted businesses, and lasers aimed at cops’ eyes to blind them – all in the name of “justice.” Then meanwhile, also try to grasp the logic of proposals to defund police and eliminate Second Amendment self-defense protections.

Visualize election scenes full of Democratic home signs and bumper stickers – versus “silent” Republicans who avoid doing so out of fear of property vandalism or worse, risks of being physically assaulted for no other reason than that they support enormously successful domestic and foreign policies of our nation’s duly elected president.
Recognize reasons for alarm about the erosion of First Amendment rights to free speech through increasingly rampant cancel culture intimidation and Orwellian information control by powerful self-ordained Silicon Valley social media censors.
Contemplate why many might be inclined to push back mightily against public subsidies for an abortion regimen with practices far beyond anything that might be considered reasonable or civilized, and against the radical left’s imposition of pseudo-historical anti-patriotic “1619 Project” systemic racism propaganda and socially destructive “White Privilege” indoctrination materials into K-12 public school programs.
Appreciate why a great many who cherish our constitution and its ordained separation of powers would fiercely resist openly partisan threats to grant de facto legislative powers to a politicized judicial branch by packing the Supreme Court with revisionist justices.
True, there have been plenty of legitimately contentious issues on the table in the 2020 presidential debate, for example, appropriate levels of taxation, controversies surrounding any honest scientific basis for climate alarm, cost efficiencies, and qualitative improvements of our American health care system, more equitable criminal justice reforms, and economically and societally beneficial immigration policies.
Unfortunately, and likely by intent, Democrats eluded any meaningful policy discussions or debates.
Here again, we witnessed an extreme contrast between a conspicuously cognitively and achievement-challenged candidate for our nation’s highest office who rarely emerged from a basement bunker to respond to friendly cherry-picked questions with content-free teleprompter-scripted answers. And then there was one who took countless incoming missiles from a hostile White House Press Corps and blazed campaign trails throughout the country with unprecedented energy and openness.
One candidate apparently had only two platform issues to run on, blame for the virus and his opponent’s personality. Yet his own record stood on crumbled foundations of rubble in both accounts.
The pathetically impotent Obama-Biden response to a very, fortunately, less virulently lethal H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic offers no basis for confidence.
Regarding Joe’s sloganeering that his administration would “crush the virus,” contrast this with the Trump administration that immediately shut down travel to China that Joe condemned as “xenophobic,” invoked the Defense Production Act to provide all medical equipment needed to rapidly respond to the crisis, established a comprehensive national testing program, and organized a massively aggressive public-private “Operation Warp Speed” initiative that is well on the way to delivering multiple vaccines and therapies before this year’s end.
It’s also impossible to dismiss blatantly hypocritical assertions that Joe Biden wins in any personal character contest. Suffice to mention that President Trump was investigated on false Russian collusion charges provably ginned up by the Hillary Clinton campaign that Joe endorsed.
Further, he was unfairly impeached for legitimately questioning Ukrainian corruption that credible evidence (also involving murky China, Russian, and other foreign oligarchs) indicates to have richly benefitted Joe’s influence-peddling family. And throughout, an also scandalously compliant media and complicit big tech censorship machine gave Joe a free pass.
2020 will conclude the most bitter presidential campaign in modern U.S. history memory that has tragically distorted fundamental contours of the American body politic.
There’s no sugar-coating the precarious urgency of reclaiming the wonderful nation we inherited for generations that follow.

It’s even more basic than “socialism vs capitalism.”
It’s collectivism vs individualism; dependence vs independence; reliance vs self reliance; fear vs confidence; government vs God.

America’s Marxist Termite Infestation

America’s Marxist Termite Infestation

The American body politic has drifted far afield from the Madisonian constitutional moorings of check and balance controls by three separate co-equal branches to an imperial executive that rules through edicts, guidance directives, and appointed publicly unaccountable agency bureaucrats — such as the EPA, FBI/DOJ and Department of Education.

How to Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs

How to Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs

Here are a few examples of how Constitutional Conservatives can use the “defund” movement to move the country back in the direction of constitutionally limited government. There is nothing in the Constitution about government-funded elementary schools, government-funded universities, and government-funded free food. Defund all government agencies not enumerated in the Constitution…

Israel Smashes Hamas’ Terror Tunnels

Israel Smashes Hamas’ Terror Tunnels

Israel secured an undeniable victory in Gaza this week. By eliminating the terrorist fighters in the tunnels, Israel may have saved hundreds of Palestinian lives, lives that otherwise might have been lost, because they were forced to be human shields for the Hamas officers and fighters who were hiding among them. By driving the terrorists into the tunnels, these lives were spared…

Biden, Kerry and the Moderate Iranian Fantasy

The most important revelations pertaining to the mindset of the Ayatollahs’ leadership, its priorities, and internal conflicts came from the leaked recording. These details prove that the terrorist regime is hell-bent on military domination of the Middle East by every means possible, especially by proxy terrorist entities, such as Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Kataaib in Iraq, and Houthis in Yemen, to name a few…

The Science of Pseudoscience for Sinister Gain

Real science no longer plays a role in establishing pandemic policies; it is the enemy of the rogue state. These are cases of good science leading to evil outcomes, however, you wish to analyze them. What is most concerning is that the Wuhan viral manipulation actors include the brainchildren of eugenics advocates, such as the Bill Gates and the Rockefeller foundations. Did they not fund this research?

Biden is on Losing Side of All Key Voting Issues

The Democrat Left’s influential alignment with radical neo-Marxist “woke” ideologies and agendas are bound to be prominently featured by Republicans in the 2022 midterms. Amid rising violent disorder, Left-aligned defund the police, and Second Amendment assaults are even opposed by many properly worried traditional Democrat voters, including most…

Hamas ‘Rain’ of Terror:  Israel Fights Back

Hamas ‘Rain’ of Terror: Israel Fights Back

Today, as the Israeli-Arab violence continues to spiral out of control, Israel is fighting a two-front (and maybe even a three-front) war, and the terrorists show no sign of giving in or giving up. Every war that Israel has been forced to engage in is a fight for survival. Hamas’ mission is clear. Hezbollah has the same mission. As does the Palestinian Authority. The destruction of the Jewish state and the creation of a…

GOP Bill Calls for CCP-Infiltrated Colleges to Fess Up

In his remarks, Sen. Chuck Grassley said: “One member of the communist regime said: ‘The Confucius Institute is an appealing brand for expanding our culture abroad. It has made an important contribution toward improving our soft power. The ‘Confucius’ brand has a natural attractiveness. Using the excuse of teaching Chinese language, everything looks reasonable and logical.’”

Is The CDC Trustworthy Anymore? 

Is The CDC Trustworthy Anymore? 

Tucker Carlson wonders why Dr. Fauci hasn’t been indicted yet. He’s the guy in charge of America’s response to the Covid infestation, isn’t he; and it appears he’s the guy who funded the NIAID’s Wuhan research lab that he denies. Could Dr. Fauci be charged one may ask? Well, he did approve the Federal NIAID Grant to the Wuhan Labs, in explicit contravention of Federal Law banning US funding of “Gain of Function” experiments…
