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.

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

The Elimination of Gun Owners is the Goal of Red Flag Laws

Red Flag Laws are a calculated start of a slippery slope to control our young people, eliminate the 2nd amendment and disable Americans from the right to defend themselves. Every totalitarian society started by eliminating the right and/or opportunity for the populace to self-defend. So which is it? Well-intentioned ignorance? Or an insidious plot to change and control our American way of life?

Dr. Peter McCullough Testifies in Texas…”Pandemic Lessons Learned”

Even a data-model expert from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center did not consider early treatment in models to predict hospitalization. This was a stunning revelation as modern estimates have early treatment resulting in a 95% reduction in the risk of hospitalization and death. This means any COVID-19 data model is useless unless it considers…

Biden Must Stop Sharing Our Nation’s Intelligence with the World

Damaging articles on U.S. information-sharing with Ukraine told Russia what we were sharing with Kyiv. While clearly, the administration did not want to escalate the war, sharing information that we planned to contribute over a dozen Polish fighter planes was extremely helpful to Russian strategists. It is a real mystery how this administration could have been so wrong on…

The American Communist Party Must Be Defeated

Once the world’s preeminent fighting force, our Armed Forces are now seemingly more concerned with teaching members to use the correct pronouns and promoting ‘letters of the alphabet’ to command positions than in protecting America and winning wars. Now we find ourselves under attack from outside our country, as well as from within…

Wind Energy or Blowing Smoke Up Our Arses!

Among the most significant weaknesses of the horizon blotting Chinese windmills from hell are those 120 to 200-foot-long blades and what to do with them when they wear out, break, get dented, or get a bullet hole in them? Every time a blade chops up an eagle or other large bird (what’s the avian death count now, 500,000 birds annually) gets even slightly dented, it needs to…

Many well-intentioned psychologists and medical doctors suggest that mental illness is a serious problem that can lead to violent acts, particularly depression. Dr. Joseph Mercola, a popular osteopathic physician calls antidepressants the elephant in the room. He rightly states that antidepressants can cause suicidal and homicidal thoughts, agitation, impulsivity, and a…

The Marxist Revolution in California Threatens Its Very Existence

The state is tumbling over three critical issues. First, the human-caused climate change fraud promotes the end of life as we know it if we continue to burn fossil fuels and emit life-giving carbon dioxide, the only reason mankind can inhabit Earth. Second, the Critical Race Theory that is turning citizen against citizen as either oppressed or oppressors, and third is the covid China virus that has disrupted all normal life and…

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

The Warning Signs Make Monkeypox the New SARS-CoV-2

In November 2021, a report was issued by the Nuclear Threat Initiative, which, along with the Munich Security Conference, held a tabletop exercise to consider responses to a fictional monkeypox outbreak that was posited to occur in May 2022. Stretching credulity, fiction has now been replaced by fact as the world experiences a genuine explosion of the monkeypox disease starting on the exact assigned date. Could this exact prediction be one more big coincidence?

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

Overturning Roe v. Wade Does Not End Abortion; It Returns the Authority to the States

What can the American people conclude, both from the reactions to the leak of the draft and the anticipated reactions to this opinion? First, we should recognize that there are people in our country for whom the ends justify the means. Some will use lies, intimidation, and violence to get their way. This should be obvious from the hysterical disinformation…

The Buck Stops With Putin, Big Oil, White Supremacists, Trump & Teachers Unions

Immediately upon taking office, Biden revoked a permit essential for the Keystone XL pipeline to deliver oil from Canada, launched an effort to overturn an oil drilling program in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska, and empowered the Department of Interior regulatory efforts to delay drilling permits. Fast forward now to June of this year, and Biden is blaming Big Oil…

Realpolitik: Biden & Muhammad bin Salman

Realpolitik: Biden & Muhammad bin Salman

MBS is telling Biden that when he comes groveling to Saudi Arabia, this ‘pariah’ state is the foremost economic and political power in the Gulf that cannot be either threatened, intimidated, or insulted by the USA. That Biden is dealing with an extremely vital state to America’s interests. To assist Biden’s survival, MBS will most definitely demand that there will be Quid pro Quo such as…

Liberty Requires Morality, “As Religion Fades, So Will Freedom”

Liberty Requires Morality, “As Religion Fades, So Will Freedom”

A culture that rejects ‘Nature’s God,’ as we did sixty years ago, will eventually reject the Laws of Nature. We are seeing the truth of this in the epidemic of “transgender-identification” among young people. Those who succumb to the active recruitment being conducted from age 5 are encouraged to embark on a lifetime of social, biochemical, and surgical opposition…
