By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
911 and the invasion of Iraq started America down this road of collectivism. These two events weakened America’s economy, and as a result the reason why George Soros, in 2008, financially pulled the plug and bypassed Hillary Clinton’s almost certain coronation, and replaced her with a substitute grassroots Socialist community leader who went by the name, Barack ‘insane’ Obama.  Obama’s prime time call up from the minors was leveraged and protected by his ‘first Black man’ status, and then using of the guaranteed charge of ‘racism’ anytime someone questioned his citizenship status to run for the office of President of the United States, his stomping out the rule of law, ignoring the Constitutional, and bypassing Congress!
Americans began to question their own safety, and after 911, started asking how could this happen here on our very own American soil. Unbeknownst to Americans this Confusion and doubt opened the door to the 'perfect storm' needed by the Socialist platform that's based on dependency and perceived need to have someone else run their unprotected lives and keep America safe. That one-time opportunity, based on the new fear of the unknown, would give Socialism it’s best chance to survive in a country where in your wildest dreams, never would happen in America’s Constitutional Republic, which has led us successfully for the last 240+ years.
To increase the level of anxiety and division in America, and to have Socialism have a chance, Obama needed to accelerate the progressive base of Socialism through collectivism and using political correctness, implicit bias, and Christian bashing to heighten millennial's fear of the unknown, and questioning themselves about the level of security in not only America, but in their individual lives. These Socialist check list practices increased the odds that the ‘let me control your life’ Socialists, at least in the eyes of these individuals, could save this lost generation of millennials who have been fighting for relevance and identity that they have been searching for since reaching puberty and advancing to adulthood. To bond with the Alinsky model, and feel self-worth through the mutual inclusion by being part of the Obama/Soros clandestine transformation of America through open border Socialism, are now joining hands with ‘in the same boat’ millennials to help them feel some level of self worth, pride, and the degree of inclusion and relevance they need in their lives.  
Parental America and our feckless elected officials need to address this problem and give some praise and hope to America’s future leaders while teaching them about the endless opportunities that America’s vibrant and economically successful past offers. Through history they should be mandated to study the past, present, and the future of all ideologies that don’t coincide with the ideals and religious freedoms of America. These troubling developments in the leadership of America’s future  needs to be addressed, and needs to be addressed by getting a job, getting off the entitlement rolls of laziness, moving out of your parents’ house to live on your own, taking responsibility for yourself, and then help working on Trump’s making America great again by rebuilding the same military that Obama destroyed, participating in building up the nonexistent 3% GDP that would of protected the sheeple from depending on government and Obama’s  generous entitlements, and being tied to the whims and demands of the Socialism, and the life altering hook of Socialists controlling every aspect of your life! If you’re going to sit on your ass and wait for someone to lend you a hand in the new Trump world, then you’re going to be waiting a long time, so, go back to work and let President Trump get back to work with tax reform, Healthcare reform, and draining the ‘swamp!’
Are all Americans holding their collective breath and hiding in mutually respected ideological groups to stay physically and mentally safe due to the instability of political correctness? Are all Americans that voted for Trump still staying silent in these same political correct groups to be protected so they’re not expelled and thrown back into those same unknown and questionable elements that exists in America today? Only time will tell…..
The recession of 2008-2009 cost us our individualism. Very few people 'stand up for what's right' any longer over fear of a losing a job they likely already hate.
It’s mostly the people with nothing to lose who seem to be fighting for their rights.
Prior to the recession, middle-class Americans were more outspoken, living as individuals with unique opinions and strong values. That has all changed.
From 2008 to 2013 the number of foreclosures and bankruptcies reached a record high. Many two-income households lost at least one job. The spouse fortunate enough to retain their job during the crisis likely lost some of their income and/or benefits. Savings were depleted in many households.
Out of desperation, American workers culturally migrated from feeling empowered, unique, and important to being timid and compliant. As a result, many Americans have become collectivists.
Let's first define collectivism: It's the practice of giving a group priority over each individual in it. What this means is that whistleblowing, challenging authority, or pushing for higher standards has become taboo. This results in a vicious spiral, trapping even more people in this cultural evolution.
For instance, employees of major banks abuse customers, because they desperately feel they need to keep the job. This phenomenon explains how Wells Fargo was able to perpetrate a fraud on two million of its customers wherein they opened unauthorized accounts and slammed them with illegal fees. Over 5000 Wells employees were fired.
I believe the employees were used as ‘scapegoats’ for an egregious and collectivist culture created by the executives in Wells that ultimately put process and profit over people.
The incident involving a United Airlines passenger who was dragged off the plane after refusing to leave, Dr. David Dao, is a result of collectivism. United's process was clearly more important than its customers. Instead of offering the maximum allowed incentive for customers to voluntarily deplane, the collectivists at United offered a smaller sum. When there were no takers, they proceeded like ‘robots’ to enforce their policies and throw customers off the plane. They did it without empathy, professionalism, or grace.
This is how collectivists behave. They lack the capacity to show empathy or grace because their only master is the process dictated by their group.
My Townhall.com Finance article, 'The PayPal Monopoly' is Crushing U.S. Small Businesses makes the point that large businesses in our nation are monopolizing and bullying our citizens. These businesses unilaterally force customers to comply with so many rules and procedures that the average citizen lacks the capacity to understand them. Naturally, these rules favor the business(es) and not the customer.
In the ‘PayPal’ article, I pointed to the sentiment that many people share: A comment on the site www.PayPalsucks.com says, "OMG do you hear yourself whining? Nobody is holding a gun to your head forcing you to use PayPal." This may be legally true, but many small businesses have no choice because of the collusion between PayPal and other sales sites.
I challenge this notion that no one forces us to use these larger businesses such as PayPal, United Airlines, Comcast, Wells Fargo or others that have been allowed to monopolize their industries.
In terms of banking, the five largest banks set the procedural standard for the entire industry; thus, we no longer have a choice between the competing terms and conditions of one institution over another. They are all virtually the same: anti-consumer.
United Airlines is the combination of three of the most notable players in aviation history: United, Pan Am and Continental. In addition, fourteen smaller airlines were purchased by United to form what it is today. Just twenty years ago, a situation like Dr. Dao had the potential of destroying a company like United.
Today, while a large public relations nightmare, this situation likely won't even be worthy of being called a financial 'speed-bump.' No one at United will resign, no major change will occur, and passengers will face another circumstance in the future just as egregious. United's 'process over people' will continue to thrive in our rapidly forming collectivist culture.
Collectivism can damage a society.
Collectivist cultures rank high in masculinity, ultimately reducing the role of women. In collectivist cultures, inequality of all minority people is a problem.
Collectivist mentality causes a struggle to tolerate risk or uncertainty in business and personal matters.
As a result, only a few individuals (or businesses) control the potential of the most people. Weaker classes of people are economically abused even more and there is very little regard for situations that don't fall into typical 'black-and-white,' legalistic rules and regulations.
Allow me to describe the country that suffers from the foregoing vices. It's a country where drug lords have gained control of elected officials, maintaining their massive crime-rings and ultimately creating oppression of people - not by the government but by lack of effective government. Many of these people are fleeing the country to seek refuge and opportunity in At the United States. They arrived here as collectivists, but with hope.
They arrive as ‘collectivists’ in the purest form and then struggle to succeed because of they fear being unique. Just like many compliant, American-born citizens who are afraid to lose their job, these people are also afraid. It most cases, it is safer for them to hide among the collectivists, instead of reaching for their potential, out fear of being detected and deported.
There are many countries that I could be describing: North Korea, China, India, etc.
I am referring to Mexico. That is what we're becoming.
If more of our citizens don't start holding our corrupt elected officials and egregious, big-business bullies accountable to serving us, our future is more bleak than bright.
We built this nation from the sweat and hard work of individuals with new ideas; not robotic collectivists apathetically going through the motion to collect a paycheck from a massive, politically-correct conglomerate. ~~By Bryan Crabtree, a Friend of America!
America is an exceptional country that was built by immigrants and refugees, just like the Progressive left proclaims, but that doesn’t mean that they can choose to selectively defend lawlessness and silencing the Constitutional granted free speech to get their point across, and disrespect the Constitution and the rule of law at the same time!  By half heartily Identifying with their own related immigrants and refugees from generations ago who wrote the laws, were only trying to protect themselves from the same atrocities, prejudices, and bigotry that they ran away from to be free, and self governing! Self-determination through hard work and the liberties that instills the beliefs of not only self-worth, but self-actualization, is what’s missing In the Progressives Left’s argument, and if Globalism is going to threaten our beliefs, freedoms, and  liberties, especially when we know that there are people coming here to do this exceptional country harm, then you know that extreme vetting, returning to the rule of law, eliminating the traitorous leaders of Sanctuary Cities, and just enforcing the immigration laws that were already on the books, and still are from 8 years ago when Obama decided to ignore, bypass, and override through executive order, is going to be the only acceptable path to continued freedom and the protections that wouldn’t have led to the death of so many legal American citizens!
Ultra-liberal Sweden is becoming a shell of its former self because liberalism has turned this once peaceful country into a chaotic, multicultural cesspool of violence and unrest.
Swedes have always taken pride in their open-mindedness, believing their good intentions and big hearts would overcome a collision of cultures when it comes to immigration without assimilation. Swayed by purely emotional thinking, they assumed their kindness and generosity would be reciprocated, believing their sophistication and universal outlook would elevate them above the consequences of what happens when Third World mindsets reside at First World addresses.
Now crime is on the rise and Swedish police officer Peter Springare has had enough. In a Facebook post that he openly admitted wasn’t politically correct, Springare said his “suspected perpetrators” for crimes that week came from: “Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden.”
Of course, Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven challenged Officer Springare’s claims, which quickly went viral.
Apparently, Prime Minister Lofven had a change of heart after the April 7 terrorist truck attack when an immigrant expressed his appreciation for Sweden’s generosity by hijacking a beer truck and mowing down a crowd on a bustling Stockholm shopping street. After the attack, reports emerged that police searching for clues in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta were “pelted with stones by hostile gangs” of immigrant youth.
Lofven now promises Sweden “will never go back to the [mass immigration] we had in autumn 2015, never.” According to the UK Daily Mail, 80 percent of the asylum seekers admitted in 2015 did not have identification papers, making it “impossible to find out who they were or whether they had terror links.” Another 40,000 were let in without seeking asylum and “simply disappeared and have not been traced by the authorities.”
Sweden may never go back to 2015 levels, but what’s done is done. They flushed their safety, security and national identity down the loo and will forevermore reap the consequences of their nonsensical choices.
Like former President Obama and Germany’s Angela Merkel, Lofven is a megalomaniacal leftwing globalist ideologue that proudly promotes policies normal people hate. They live in a world defined by childlike assumptions of multiculturalism, but multiculturalism has worked for the West about as well as socialism worked for Venezuela.
During a CNN interview with Brooke Baldwin, a Syrian man, Kassam Eid, praised and thanked President Trump for his recent Tomahawk missile response to the sarin attack in Syria. Eid told Baldwin he didn’t see the media or all the people protesting Trump’s travel ban “raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.”
“If you really care about refugees,” Eid said, “if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country.” His country. Not America. Not Germany. Not Sweden.
Left-wing globalists wrongly assume their open-mindedness, worldview, inclusiveness, and commitment to unity guarantees everyone a happily-ever-after ending. Frankly, their ideology might make them feel good, but it’s killing the rest of us. ~~ By Susan Stamper Brown

By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
Progressives can sit here and pretend that Hillary lost the election because of James Comey, the Russians, Wikileaks, and the raising premiums of Obamacare, but god forbid, never anything crooked Hillary is responsible for because of her own doing. I think you know what I’m referring to here, and without going into another very long list of Hillary's and Obama’s list of required steps to transform America to Socialism, their willingness to bypass Congress, ignore the Constitution, and the constant poisoning the minds of young Americans, then their unwillingness to listen to the 'Will' of the American people will be the cause of their extinction in the future election cycles to come.
What’s missing in the facts and conclusions of why Hillary lost the election has nothing to do with the obvious manipulation of the facts by agenda journalist, but the unspoken ‘Elephant in the room’ theory, and everything other than the truth, which should be so obvious and hitting every legal American citizens, and even illegal immigrants and refugees square in the face. The answer is simple and very recognizable, and that’s because today's Democrats have decided to opt out of being traditional Democrats that work through bipartisan negotiation and exchange of ideas, to help America, but now have decided to consciously double down on their Socialist leanings that are changing the political landscape of this ‘shinning city on the hill’ that have been looked up to and respected for generations by the world community, and before the last 8 years of a feckless lawless rogue President and his complicit Justice and intelligence communities, that think Americans are tired of the liberties and freedoms granted to them by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights in our Constitution, and not ready to succumb to the perils of other Socialist following countries in the 3rd world! 
Why can’t Agenda Journalist just call what’ going on within the old Traditional Democratic Party a.k.a. the ‘new’ Socialist Party of America for what it truly is? Hillary says words matter, but if that's the truth why can't they call terrorism by its true name, ‘Radical Islamic Terrorism, or even calling ex-President Obama’s unconstitutional road to the White House through not meeting the citizenship requirement of not being a natural born citizen, and then being covered up by Nancy Pelosi’s chicanery important, criminal, and treasonous?
The real crime here is what’s going on with America’s millennial generation who have never witnessed a productive and thriving economy, but being taught that an entitlement based government run existence is the only way to go. This will be the first time an American generation has been socially engineered to reject our Constitutional Republic’s Constitution, and to be rewarded for not taking any responsibility in 'their' life, their community, and doing it on their own two feet! America’s liberal universities and professors have discarded America History and its past looked up to reputation in the world, and replaced it with alt-left Socialist guidelines and globalists ideologies and teachings, that conveniently undermine the exceptionalism that is America.  ~~
For young minds trying to make it in the world on their own we find that many millennials still live at home. An interesting study released by the US Census Bureau shows that about 1/3 of millennials 18-34 live at home or in a college dormitory. A quarter of 25-34-year old’s living at home are either not employed or not going to school.
Most of those who live at home neither work nor study have a high school diploma or less, and about a fifth have a child. Half are white, and the majority are male. About a quarter have a disability.
Making sweeping generalizations that reflect badly on young adults today is probably unavoidable. But I think it more important to look at the underlying causes that are forcing young people to live with their parents.
It comes down to an economy that is not creating entry level jobs that pay a living wage. A college degree used to be a gateway to a white-collar job in the 1970's. Those jobs not only paid enough for a young adult to live alone, but also put the worker on a management track.
Even high school graduates with few skills could find employment at a factory or shop that paid a decent wage. Those jobs are all gone now, never to return. Employment has become specialized to the point that graduate school is almost a necessity for finding a job after college that would allow a young adult the independence to live by themselves.
An even more radical change is the refusal of young people to get married. This is a titanic cultural shift, the consequences of which are still not fully understood. Clearly, at least part of the reason for young adults to shy away from marriage is economics. But there is also far less emphasis placed on sex and marriage by young people today than there was in the 1970's. Most millennials don't see an upside to having a spouse and a family, and with housing prices what they are, even a two-income family will have a hard time affording one.
I think there's a chance that, with a better economy, the number of young adults living with their parents will drop. But attitudes toward marriage may have been permanently altered. The priorities of young adults would have to change for most of them to once again, look to fall in love, marry, and raise a family. ~~ By Rick Moran, a Friend of America!
We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.”—C.S. Lewis
“An empty head is not really empty; it is stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head.” — Eric Hoffer
Our kids are no longer taught about patriotism, morality, honor or self-reliance. They’re not taught economics. They’re not taught about the Constitution. The boys aren’t taught to be men and the girls aren’t taught to be women. In fact, if you find kids who know anything about these subjects, it is almost certainly because their parents bent over backwards to jam that knowledge into their heads.
Our society used to inculcate these values in schools, church and via our entertainment. It was a different and, in many ways, better world. Liberals try to portray everything that happened in America’s past as evil and backward, but when you look at statistics like these from Charles Murray’s outstanding book, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010, try and tell me that this country hasn’t gone downhill in the values we’re teaching our kids.
“To get a sense of how different attitudes were in the 1960s, perhaps this will do it. These ever-married women were asked, ‘In your opinion, do you think it is all right for a woman to have sexual relations before marriage with a man she knows she is going to marry?’ …Eighty-six percent said no.”
“Starting in 1970, marriage took a nosedive that lasted for nearly twenty years. Among all whites, ages 30-49, only 13 percent were not living with spouses as of 1970, Twenty years later, that proportion had more than doubled, to 27 percent — a change in a core social institution that has few precedents for magnitude and speed.”
As the late, great Andrew Breitbart said, “Politics is downstream from culture.” Is it a shocker that millennials lean to the Left when they constantly have liberalism shoved down their throats by their schools, their favorite musicians, and Hollywood? Is it a big surprise that 51% of millennials do not support capitalism when we allow honest-to-goodness communists to teach them in college and liberals are publicly extolling the virtues of socialist hellholes like Cuba and Venezuela?
The Greatest Generation grew up storming Normandy and fighting the Japanese across the Pacific. Meanwhile, many millennials of the same age feel “unsafe” if someone they disagree with speaks at an event they don’t have to attend on their campus.
Oh, and morality? Kids today grow up being told that morality is wrong because morality demands judgment. As Hugh Hewitt said, “My analysis is that most faith based systems depend upon an absolute moral order. The declaration of things as absolutely evil or absolutely good, as sin or virtue, puts liberalism into a horrible position because it’s founded on no judgment on anything. As a result, any faith that is seriously practiced or understood is a challenge to the politics that depend on constituencies that would rather not be told that their choices are bad and their lives are not virtuous.”
Additionally, as my friend Evan Sayet noted, everything liberals teach to kids is backward.
“Justice demands that the good and hard-working be rewarded and the evil and the lazy be punished (if only by the withholding of the rewards of doing the right things). Modern Liberalism demands that the good and hardworking be punished as the recipients of an unfair advantage and the evil and the lazy be rewarded, their acts of evil and their failure all the proof the Modern Liberal needs that somehow they have been victimized by forces out of their control.”
In the sixties, American kids were dreaming of building rocket ships and going to the moon. Today, they’re trying to figure out what gender they are and which bathroom they should be using. It’s not an improvement.
This is where snowflakes come from. It’s where the victimhood mentality comes from. It’s why so many kids think they’re entitled to have whatever they want based on what we can only assume is the sheer gratitude the rest of us should have for their very existence.
As someone who has millennials working for him, I can tell you that they’re not a doomed generation. They’re not all snowflakes. They can be just as successful as past generations of Americans.
However, to make that happen, we conservatives can’t just keep going with the flow because it’s easier. We have to teach young Americans about the values that have made this the most successful, prosperous nation on earth.
To start with, we need to begin challenging the victim mentality liberals push on millennials. As I write in my brand-new book, “101 things All Young Adults Should Know, “Don’t ever feel sorry for yourself. Don’t ever seek pity from other people. Don’t ever play the victim, even if you are one. Why? It’s a mentality. If you wait for someone else to solve your problems, you’re usually in for a long wait. Even if you do get help, you probably won’t like the help you get.” Hammer that message home to your kids. Also, buy a copy of my book. In fact, buy 30 and give them to all your kids’ friends.
Let’s cut off the funding of state run colleges which discriminate against conservatives. Furthermore, if liberal kids keep tearing up Berkeley every time conservatives want to speak, then maybe Trump should send in the National Guard to keep order and protect their First Amendment rights.
We’ve also got to teach our kids about capitalism, Christianity, and love of country, because that is what this nation was built on. Snowflakes may melt when the going gets tough, but kids who are taught good, conservative values will stand tall even when it’s not easy. ~~By John Hawkins, a Friend of America
The path out of this isn’t hard. Reach out to the tens of millions of white working class voters that dot rural America, talk jobs, talk pension protection, talk better trade deals, and leave out the political correctness. These voters are die-hard Republicans; they’re swing voters. Yet, Warren thought it was easier to just say that white working class concerns were partially based on racism, a piping hot stew of racism (via The Hill):
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday said President Trump's electoral win in November was, in part, the result of "an ugly stew of racism."
Asked by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow why white middle-class voters would cast their ballots for Trump, Warren said the real estate mogul was able to tap into a deep-seated anger felt among low- and middle-income voters by placing blame on ethnic and religious minorities.
“Part of it is an ugly stew of racism," Warren said. "Part of it is Donald Trump tapped into anger. He got that people are deeply angry.”
The Guardian’s Chris Arnade logged 100,000 miles covering areas that Trump is talking about in his speeches and the ones that Democrats should focus on if they want to retake Congress and the presidency. He found that even those who don’t support Trump, and think he’s nuts, were not surprised by his win. One man Arnade encountered on his travels, Anthony Rice, an African-American living in Youngstown, Ohio, said, “Obama promised a lot and only a little came of it. Maybe New York City got delivered promises. This street here is still filled with homes falling down.”
To get out beyond successful neighborhoods in D.C., New York City and the elite college campuses – beyond where prevailing socio-political opinions are made – is to see another America.
It isn’t a more “real” America – a glib and offensive cliché – it is simply a different one. It is an America that values and experiences different things, emphasizing local community and faith, rather than career or educational status. It is an America that has been on a downward trajectory for decades, hurt by the loss of jobs and with downtowns emptied of energy and filled with drugs. It has made staying in these communities harder.
In this America hope is fading, not growing. People’s lives are a constant tangle of changing and uncertain jobs. The path that offers a way out – education – requires threading a narrow needle of opportunities from an early age. If that small chance is missed it means a lifetime of feeling looked down on by the “other America.”
In these towns, “America already is great” rings hollow and offensive.
And with all of that, saying that they voted based on racism is typical liberal bubble logic that cost them the Democrats the race. It’s part of the condescending superiority complex liberals have with their policies. They’re always right, so when folks disagree—these people are racist, sexist, misogynistic, transphobic, or Islamophobic because it’s the easiest thing to do. No wonder why folks rejected them in the tens of millions. Democrats’ only saving grace is that California, which is loaded with liberals, was able to give Hillary Clinton a few million more votes, which precipitated the nauseating and worthless talking point that she won more popular votes. Yep, she won more popular votes, but not a majority. Trump is president and she’s not, but the truth is that Democrats will leech onto anything that will diminish and discredit Trump.
Right now, Warren seems to be building her 2020 candidacy through a book tour, which even some staunch liberals say is a little scarce on details. So, while Warren says that Trumpland is motivated by racism, which is just a rehashing of Clinton’s deplorable remarks, her “This Fight Is Our Fight” to save the very people she called racist is being described as a condescending incomplete blueprint that shows her limitations of understanding American society. Ouch. By the way, Paul Krugman was the person who described the manuscript as the mile wide, but inch deep manifesto for a progressive renaissance. I think The Atlantic’s Emma Green’s review of the book pretty much says it all; especially on how it’s pretty much just a louder version of the Clinton campaign. Warren and company can call Trump supporters anything they like. They still don’t get it.
Warren’s book also reveals the moral languages the senator is less able to speak. She never truly grapples with why Democrats lost, why middle-class voters would choose Trump or whether their anger might be about more than the economy. Warren sees the world through the narrow lens of economic interests, ignoring the deeply held values and beliefs that often determine people’s politics. This attitude is condescending, but more important, it limits Warren’s understanding of America — and why her party has failed so badly.
Warren has a playbook for Democrats: Talk about the middle class, not the poor. Focus on regulation and corruption, not taxing and spending. And at every possible moment, highlight the hypocrisy and corruption of the other side. She details policy proposals in bulleted lists and anecdotes, mixing stories from her Oklahoma childhood with narratives about middle-class Americans who worked hard and still ended up struggling with money.
“This Fight Is Our Fight” could conveniently double as a slogan for a national campaign, one very different from Clinton’s “Stronger Together.”
Yet the story Warren tells about the election and America’s anxieties is curiously one-dimensional. She uses standard progressive math to explain Trump voters: Some are racist bigots, some were taken in by a huckster casino owner, and some are suffering from intense economic despair. One of the women she follows, Gina, lives in a mobile home in a small North Carolina town. She and her husband barely get by on her hourly wage from Walmart. “We need to tell this story!” Gina tells Warren. “But I really need this job.”
Gina, we find out at the end of the book, “proudly voted for Donald Trump, hoping he would ‘shake things up.’ ” In Warren’s world, the Democratic Party would win the vote of every Gina in America by fighting for a “playing field that isn’t tilted so hard against her.” But Warren never really tells us why America’s Ginas aren’t voting for Democrats now. ~~By Matt Vespa, a Friend of America
Agenda Journalist's keep beating that Socialist, open border, Globalist drum, and ignoring the accomplishments of America's past under the Constitutional Republic blueprint that was laid out by our founding father's some 240 plus years ago. If the Liberal/Progressive sheeple that filled the Obama administration for the last 8 years didn't intentionally bypass Congress, the rule of law, and the Constitution, then true traditional Democrats would still be working in a bipartisan way to assist in 'making America great again' with Republicans, then, and only then, would both sides of the aisle would actually be listening to the 'Will' of the American people, and working together to put America back on the right path.

By Jonathan E.P. Moore, and Friends of America!
Who would have ever believed that America’s generosity would turn against the one thing that has buoyed the freedoms and liberties of this great and exceptional country known as America for centuries, but still chose to riot and protest against the backbone of our Constitutional Republic, the Constitution? America was never perfect and was never meant to be, but America was the only country that made the outcasts of the world feel welcome and at home, and that’s because they 'weren’t' perfect, but in the eyes of the powerful ideologues that ruled their native countries, decided they weren't worthy enough, and therefore used as scapegoats to enforce false ties and common enemies to reinforce the bonds of misguided political and religious agendas! 
I bet you thought I was losing my focus and slightly leaning a little left here, but you would be wrong, and the reason you would be wrong is because of the those words that greeted our very own past generations of immigrants and refugees that made us who we are today:
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”
Words should matter, and these words do, but not if those words are referring to the legal and loyal citizens of America that are being prosecuted by agenda journalist and their bosses, the ‘Paid to Report’ Media to back an alt-left Socialist agenda! For the last 240 years Americans were that melting pot described, and very proud of being so, but now, because of Political Correctness and implicit bias has turned Americans against one another, and being done intentionally by the outside influences that backed the Alinskyites, and the what’s left of the once bipartisan, willingness to help make America great again, Democratic Party.
I have to believe that a majority of Americans, and obviously the ones who are never asked about how they feel by pollsters, are true believers in the Constitution and rule of law and that Trump, who is just enforcing the laws of the land that have been on the books before Alinskyite Obama took office, is what needs to be done to protect the sovereignty of America, and keep Americans safe! If you’re on the left and consider yourself a ‘traditional’ Democrat, it’s time to abandon that once proud and respected affiliation, and become an Independent where common sense and objectivity is in your control and free of the rhetoric that paints your loyalty to America beliefs to be included in that ‘new’ progressive broad brush stroke of Socialism!
Public Universities are relying on a variety of federal, state and alumni loans to finance their rage against the machine.
In today’s academy, truth is an invention. Expecting people to show up on time is racist. Censorship is good. Silencing opposing viewpoints imperative. Violence to enforce safety is natural.
For the last 25 years, under the guise of “political correctness,” we’ve been watching the inexplicable flow into our culture. The idiotic demands of political correctness in the 1980s, ironically relying on the decency of the American people for their acquiescence, was just the prep course, an amuse bouche before the main course of creating social chaos and destruction.
It sounds dramatic, and it is, and it’s also the only way the left maintains power — brainwashing people into believing that social norms must be destroyed in order to create a more perfect society. From the ashes would emerge the great collective phoenix.
Just ask the Soviet Union, Cambodia, Cuba and Venezuela how well that works out.
Last year, we watched political correctness on campus jump with abandon into its perfected state of fascism. Within a year, we moved from weeping students demanding safe spaces to direct, organized violence to stop speakers who do not pay allegiance to the left’s status quo.
Perhaps with the ascent of Donald Trump, it was the shock of realizing the American people weren’t Venezuelan and were not inclined to commit mass suicide.
Consider some recent revelations, the natural trajectory from the crowd a generation ago that was demanding manhole covers be called “personhole covers,” and making “mailman,” “fireman,” and “policeman” all verboten. We assented, and a thousand steps later:
Reporting about Pomona College: “Black students condemn ‘truth’ as an invention of white people, want conservatives expelled.” News about Clemson University: “Public university’s ‘diversity training’: Expecting people to show up on time is racist.” A headline about the work of an ungraduated researcher at University of Wisconsin-Madison: “Teachers should allow Ebonics because English grammar is too hard for minorities to learn.”
This “activism” at the academy is not only classically fascist, it destroys the future for the young people awash in its conditioning. Imagine, after all: What business, what culture, could survive a generation that thinks expecting people to be on time is racist?
Attempting to enact Orwellian rules at college is just one pastime of students. Free Beacon comments on the direct and often violent efforts to stop non-liberal speakers from being heard:
“With Notre Dame students feeling ‘unsafe’ at the prospect of Vice President Mike Pence speaking at their commencement, the riots at Berkeley caused by the presence of professional troll Milo Yiannopoulos on campus, and the explosive protest in March against author Charles Murray at Middlebury College that resulted in the assault of a professor, the war on campuses against freedom of expression and hearing opposing views is pervasive and troubling.”
To say the least.
Last week, the University of California at Davis’ Student Senate voted to remove the American flag from Student Senate meetings. If you want it to be visible, you have to file a petition in an effort to convince others.
Todd Starnes reported one UC Davis student’s support of the action on her Facebook post: “Why do you feel that advocating for the U.S. flag that represents a history of genocide, slavery, and imperialism is more important than stuff that actually matters like I don’t know, the violence against our LGBTQ Brown and Black students, rising tuition, resources for our students without homes,” she fumed. “What a waste of time.”
The odds are quite high that the students at this public university are relying on a variety of federal, state and alumni loans to finance their rage against the machine. Perhaps some of the assistance should be reconsidered when a classic education is taking a backseat to social justice warrioring. On Monday, I appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program discussing this after the student leaders canceled a planned appearance on the program. Apparently, their college bubble was threatened.
Yet, college was supposed to be the bubble destroyer. Leaving home and all familiar, thrown into a new, challenging world. You are to be prepared for a world bigger than you, and certainly different from you.
Instead, we are infantilizing students, appeasing and placating them, condemning them to a life uncertain. Who needs time management? The ability to work and live with people unlike yourself? Why not resort to violence because you’re upset or angry or irritated?
It has been a perfect storm creating this disaster, one of which is the lowering of expectations of students in general because of the rot of political correctness. Our public schools have failed so miserably, universities now can’t hold applicants to any sort of standard.
Consider the frighteningly absurd decision by Stanford, as The Wall Street Journal reported: “Every year, Stanford asks its applicants an excellent question: ‘What matters to you, and why?’ Ziad Ahmed of Princeton, N.J., summed up his answer in three words. His essay consisted of the hashtag “#BlackLivesMatter” repeated 100 times. He got in.”
We can answer Stanford’s question quite simply: What matters to us are college degrees that still mean something; graduates who are ready to contribute to society and are ready to pursue dreams in business, life and society. What matters to us is the future. What matters is us winning this existential fight for students and a nation being abandoned by the liberals running our universities. ~~By Tammy Bruce, a Friend of America
What doesn’t help is the mixed message being sent to the future Americans that are expected to step up to the plate and keep kicking the true ideals of America and its Constitutional Republic can down the road. A lot of it is just about using a little common sense and practical reasoning, but other times it’s listening to the mouthpieces of ‘Paid to Report’ Media who disagree with our founding father’s vision, and their alternatives that take away the liberties and freedoms that the Constitution gives you. If you are smart enough to ‘get it,’ then you’re smart enough to always just: 
As American society becomes more tribal, society also becomes increasingly unstable and unmoored from civility. Americans are expected to take up for their tribe and defend it at all costs. The unfortunate outcome is that it can lead to not doing the right thing.
There are people in the United States who really would cheer on President Trump should he go out to Fifth Avenue in New York City and murder someone publicly. They would find some excuse to blame the victim, which might include insufficient loyalty.
The truth is there are Democrats who would do the same for Barack Obama. In fact, we can see this with President Trump's travel and golf. For eight years Republicans complained about President Obama's golfing and vacations while Democrats defended him. Now, Democrats have suddenly become concerned with the cost of Presidential travel and golf playing, while Republicans no longer care. One progressive columnist declared it proof the GOP was racist. The reality is this is proof that both sides are partisan and tribal.
The New York Times made a very big deal out reports the U.S.S. Carl Vinson was actually not headed to North Korea at the time President Trump said it was. This was not the president's fault. The Pentagon had told him the ship was headed toward the Korean peninsula when it was not. But Democrats seized on this as a sign of further in competence.
Had this happened to President Obama, the New York Times editors would have celebrated his masterful poker playing and ability to bluff his way out of a tense situation with the North Koreans. Both sides have surrendered their intellectual honesty in favor of their tribes.
Democrats who have been protesting Bill O'Reilly were perfectly willing to defend President Clinton and his antics in and out of the White House. These same Democrats are horrified by President Trump being on his third wife and having several affairs. Meanwhile, some of the very same preachers who called for Bill Clinton to be impeached for his behavior are some of the most vocal defenders of President Trump's behavior, claiming it does not matter.
But it does matter. There are still objective rights and objective wrongs. Morality and values still matter. To the tribes, however, it matters less and less. More and more Americans are willing to advocate for strong moral values, so long as they can use them against the other side. They will give their own side a pass on bad behavior so long as that bad behavior is directed outside their tribe.
It has been disheartening to see supposedly good Christians defend so much bad behavior by so many bad people, arguing that everyone in the tribe must defend the behavior or let the other tribe win.
Then one allows bad behavior to continue for years, turning a blind eye or covering it up, eventually it will come out and often at the hands of your political opponents. Yes, they do score a win and yes people will think you are caving to your opponents and letting your opponent’s dictate your actions. But what is missed along the way is that you only arrived at this point because you failed to do the right thing earlier.
Republicans defending President Trump's excesses cede all the high ground when next a Democrat occupies the White House and behaves improperly. Democrats who refuse even a modicum of charity and civility toward President Trump cannot be surprised when Republicans behave as repugnantly with the next Democrat.
"But the GOP already did that to Obama," is no excuse when Republicans then say, "We only did it because of how you treated Bush." On and on the tribal arguments and playground insults go.
We are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God. We all do things we should not and often we regret them. But we should not let the comfort of tribalism overrule the necessity of sincere apology and common decency. Failure to be civil does not mean we should abandon all attempts at civility. Unfortunately, too many people have decided tribalism trumps civility and common decency. We will all be worse off because of it. ~~ By Erick Erickson, a Friend of America!
There is only one Tribe in this country, and that’s the Constitutional Republic Tribe, and with yesterday’s news, I think that tribe will guarantee Socialism will be kept at bay for a few generations to come, I hope, and that’s because it looks like President Trump will get another shot at filling at least one, and maybe more, Supreme Court Justice seats to the Supreme Court.
I call it fate, you can call it whatever you want, but we all should all take the time to thank Ex-Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid for extending the liberties and freedoms that our constitution grants us, and for using the ‘nuclear option’ to ‘fast track’ nominated underling lower court progressive justices for the sole purpose, as we’ve witnessed, to prevent the President of the United States from doing his constitutional duty to keep America safe and free from the threats of terrorism, that were permitted by Obama’s open borders, unvetted illegal immigrants, refugees, and the bolstered foreign threats due to Obama’s feckless foreign policies while crippling our military through Social engineering and withdrawn funds, and not allowing America to maintain its leadership status on the world stage!
