I don’t think many people in the rather ambivalent middle of the political spectrum fully understand the agenda the Far Left is pushing. Most people in the middle are simply sick of it all. But I thought I would highlight some recent happenings and a few of the ways the Left in America has become completely unhinged because people need to know.
This is not just about Republican versus Democrat any longer. The lines are drawn much differently now. Please note that when I refer to the Left I am referring to the Left part of the Democratic Party, not the entire Democratic Party.
If you vote for candidates on the Left in two weeks, this is what you are voting for. If you vote for Democrats who vote the party line, then this is what you are voting for because at the moment the Left and Far Left are setting the agenda for the Democratic Party. And, yes, if you stay home and don’t vote because you don’t like Trump, you are still voting for this.
If you are a Democrat, then God bless you and that’s all I can say. From this point on I’m talking about the Left that is taking this country to some horrible places we simply cannot go. If you can’t see that by the end of this post in addition to the other posts I’ve written recently, then I don’t know what to say to you. There is such a massive difference between the two parties right now that it’s impossible not to see it unless you don’t want to see it.
There were two main reasons I voted for Trump – court nominations (especially the Supreme Court) and illegal immigration. What happened in the Kavanaugh hearing and then after the Kavanaugh confirmation was disturbing. The idea that there were U.S. Senators who were willing to destroy a man and declare him guilty with no evidence is seriously disturbing. Thankfully the rule of law prevailed and we dodged that Republic-ending bullet (at least for now).
Illegal immigration was the other reason I voted for Trump. Yes, I am one of those horrible people who says Build the Wall. Enforce our immigration laws. Remove people who don’t belong here legally. Immigration should be limited and merit-based. No one has a right to come to our country and demand anything. I don’t have the right to do that anywhere else in the world and no one has the right to do that here.
That this is even remotely controversial to say is simply mind-boggling.
(And the “Christians have a responsibility to welcome the migrant argument” that progressives like to use isn’t going to work here.)
Every country in the world has the right and RESPONSIBILITY to defend their borders and their citizens. Look at history. It is replete with battles and wars and skirmishes over boundaries and borders. One of the main functions of our government is to provide a defense.
If after reading all this you still think the best thing to do is vote Democrat in two weeks and support these views and this agenda, then I really don’t know what to say.
"Emotions neither prove nor disprove facts. There was a time when any rational adult understood this. But years of dumbed-down education and emphasis on how people 'feel' have left too many people unable to see through this media gimmick."

First, Some Satire
Because I love me some satire from The Babylon Bee

The Left, the Democratic Party, the Mainstream Media, and Blacks
The Democratic Party believes it is their God-given right to control Blacks. They expect them to vote as a monolith and not question. The mainstream press is complicit in this by what they will not cover. Let me give you an example.
In Michigan, John James is the Republican Senate candidate who is trying to unseat a long-term establishment Democrat who unflinchingly votes straight Democrat with establishment Democrat leaders like Chuck Schumer. James is from Detroit. He is a West Point graduate, a combat veteran who flew Apache helicopters. He has a Masters in Supply Chain Management and Information Systems from Penn State and an MBA from the University of Michigan. He is now President of his family’s businesses in Detroit. And he’s Black.
The family business was started by his father. His grandfather was a mason. His great-grandfather was a share cropper. His great-great-grandfather was a slave.
He’s married and has two little boys. His wife is white. (I mention that only because the fact is important to the point I’m making.)
I bet unless you follow conservative media you have never heard of John James even though he is an exceptionally accomplished and qualified man to run for the Senate. He is the ideal candidate, but he’s not Black Enough to get the support of the mainstream media and so they bury him.
Why? Because he’s a conservative. He’s pro-life. He’s pro-second amendment. His family history illustrates that in a few generations a slave’s great-grandchild can go on to be successful and his great-great grandchild can run for Senate of the United States.
But that doesn’t fit the Black Narrative the Left pushes and so they ignore him.
I bet you’ve heard plenty about “Beto” O’Rourke in Texas who hasn’t accomplished anything compared to James. But the key is O’Rourke is a Leftist. It doesn’t matter that he’s white. He’s a Leftist and so the media and the Democratic Party will throw their full weight behind him.
I heard one statistic that if just 20% of Blacks leave the Democrat Party, the Party will basically cease to exist. They are that dependent on keeping the Black Vote in line and where they want them. This is why they freaked out when Kanye West went to the White House and they attempted to destroy him by any means available.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media ignores qualified Black candidates like James. If James was a Democrat, he would be the second-coming of Obama in the eyes of the media.
Actually, that’s an insult to James because James has accomplished far more with his life than Obama ever did.
But James thinks for himself. And so they shun him.

The Wall, Illegal Immigration, and the Mob That Does Not Respect Our Laws or Borders Heading Our Way
According to this article, 147,000,000 adults from around the world want to come to the United States. Please note, that is just adults. By way of comparison, our current population in the USA is 325,700.000 of which 22,000,000 of them are illegal immigrants. If we have an open border, the United States as we know it will cease to exist.
A few questions… How did this many people (mostly young men of who knows what reputation) decide all at once to walk 2,000 miles to enter the U.S.A. illegally? How are they walking that far? How are they eating? Where are they sleeping? Where are they relieving themselves? This is PAID FOR BY SOMEONE. This is not real or spontaneous. This is an October surprise, the last ditch effort of someone to impact our elections. This is an invasion. These are people who are carrying the flag of another country while they walk. They are not coming here to embrace America and our ideals. We know they are not coming here for safety because if they are, they are required to apply for asylum in the FIRST country they enter. They are coming here for completely other reasons. They were also putting children and pregnant women at the front of the line in order to intimidate law officials. This is WRONG on every level and must be stopped.
These are real images from yesterday.

On Political Correctness
There was an article that came out last week in The Atlantic (of all places) that showed Americans OVERWHELMINGLY think political correctness is a problem. Americans Strongly Dislike PC Culture outlines that 80% of people think it is a problem and this includes a high percentage of Hispanics, African Americans, etc.
The only people who think political correctness isn’t a problem? Well-educated, well-off, white progressives. Shocking, huh?
Apparently, even uber liberal Chuck Schumer got the memo because you know darn well he would never say this if The Atlantic hadn’t published that article. EVER. He’s the lead Senator of the Democratic party that pushes for political correctness and has for over twenty years.
Chuck Schumer, on MoJoe now: “I think there’s too much political correctness in this country.”

On Elizabeth Warren and Her Fauxcahontas Moment
Okay, this was seriously funny last week. She sets out to prove she’s Cherokee and discovers she has less Native American blood in her than the average random white person walking around. Then they doubled down on stupid until they realized that even the MSM wasn’t going to defend her.
I mean when CNN and MSNBC won’t carry your water any longer, you know the battle is lost on the Left.

On Voter ID Laws
We are constantly told by people on the Left that vote ID laws are racist and meant to suppress voting. That’s simply not true. And the vast majority of Americans want vote ID laws, including the vast majority of Blacks and Hispanic Americans.
