The Politics of Blame: Two Americas

“Freedom’s Battle in America” painting by A.F. Branco

The Democrat and Republican conventions described two distinctly different  Americas. The thrust of the Democrat National Convention rested on two points. Neither Biden nor Harris articulated any real platform or policy stance, but they did state two points, repeatedly.  First that President Trump mishandled the pandemic and second that President Trump is responsible for the violence sweeping across America.

Consider the first point that Trump was incompetent in his handling of the COVID Pandemic. When you hear redundancy in politics there are only two responses; Ignore the idiots or address the active idiocy with facts.

In April 2009, Joe Biden was the Obama Administration’s Pandemic Coordinator for the H1N1 virus and by all discerning accounts, Biden’s response was muddled, ineffectual and grossly negligent  He merely increased panic by warning of traveling or gathering in close quarters. In fact, the Obama White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, issued an apology for any panic Biden’s remarks caused.

Former Obama White House Advisor, Ron Klain, said of the Biden response to the H1N1 pandemic; “We did every possible thing wrong.  It is merely a fortuity that this isn’t one of the mass casualty events in American history.”  Want to know why there was a lack of safety/medical equipment, such as ventilators, when COVID hit? Joe Biden failed to replenish our strategic national stockpiles after the H1N1 pandemic.

The pandemic coffers were empty and not refilled in the wake of Joe’s watch.  The Obama Administration’s pandemic protocol was missing in action. During the H1N1 Pandemic, there were no masks, no shutdowns, no closures and Barack Obama’s response was never questioned by the press as he continued to play golf.

When President Trump started to address the issue of COVID in January, he was called xenophobic and racist by liberal pundits such as Biden.  President Trump blocked travel from China and, subsequently, Europe. The President was looking out for the United States in a very astute manner.  Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people could have lost their lives if unfettered travel between countries had been allowed.

Not since World War II, has such a mobilization of private and government forces been enacted.  Within weeks, masks, medical gowns, and ventilators were created en masse.  Military personnel and hospital ships were dispatched to some of the harder hit cities. A direct response to an invisible enemy.

Biden has stated that, if elected, he will shut down America.  No thinking person wants to join you in the basement Joe. You cannot fight a virus, run a campaign or run a Presidency by hiding Joe.  Thinking Americans will not agree to tyranny disguised as government.  America is not Australia.  Yet, if elected, Biden and crew may try to turn this country into a new prison colony.

What if history informs you that COVID-19 was a biological/psychological weapon utilized by hostile governments (Foreign and Domestic) to ultimately disrupt and enslave the people?  To, perhaps, alter the outcome of an election? What will your response be when you recognize truth?

It has been astonishing how easy Governors have been able to decide who is essential and shutdown their states.  The Democrat Party, as usual, is not letting a good crisis go to waste. Instead of COVID-19 let’s call this manifested pandemic the do-nothing’s election infection. American patriots need to rise to the occasion.  We must become shepherds, however reluctant, among compliant sheep. The COVID crisis Trump’s fault? Far from it Joe.

The other argument, as distilled by the Democrat Narcissist Convention, is that the violent anarchy and civil war like behavior of some of our citizens is “Trump’s America.”

Through redistricting and basic political chicanery the Democrat Party has been co-opted by some rather dangerous folks.  Some of them became Congressional Representatives, Mayors and Governors.  Politicians who have become vocal proponents of radical Islam and Socialism.

Trump’s America?  In the wake of George Floyd’s death, let us consider, at least partially, some of America’s cities that are perpetuating protest and, in some cases, are also supporting anarchy.  Let us also consider the Mayors of those following cities and their party affiliation:

Atlanta-Keisha Lance Bottoms, Democrat
Baltimore-Bernard Young, Democrat
Canton-Thomas Bernabei, Democrat
Columbus-James Ginther, Democrat
Charlotte-Vi Lyles, Democrat
Chicago-Lori Lightfoot, Democrat
Dallas-Eric Johnson, Democrat
Denver-Michael Hancock, Democrat
Des Moines-Frank Cownie, Democrat
Detroit-Michael Edward Duggan, Democrat
Kenosha-John Antaramian, Democrat
Los Angeles-Eric Garcetti, Democrat
Louisville-Greg Fischer, Democrat
Minneapolis-Jacob Frey, Democrat
New York-Bill de Blasio, Democrat
Portland-Ted Wheeler, Democrat
Rochester-Lovely Warren, Democrat
San Jose-Sam Liccardo, Democrat
Seattle-Jenny Durkan, Democrat

I figured a listing of 19 cities proves my point, though there are more. How can this be “Trump’s America,” when these municipalities are run by Democrats? Democrat rule has become Democrat ruin. In many cases, in liberally run cities, and in many liberal states, this travesty of Democrat leadership has gone on for decades.  Places where crimes against our citizens are actually in the guise of politics as usual. We have become recovering Americans.  Survivors of a 24 year long storm of bad politics. In 2020, we are now the patriots who will no longer accept “the usual.”

This is not about the left or right but the truth.  In 2016 a successful businessman ran and the people flocked to hear his campaign promises and support someone that was not another deep state puppet. When Donald J. Trump beat the odds and won in a landslide victory fear gripped the status quo and the smear campaigns begin to flood the airwaves.

President Trump has been attacked from every side for keeping his campaign promises.  We finally elected someone that did not go into politics to get rich but because they love America and want to restore our Republic.  President Trump has cut more taxes and onerous regulations than any President. He has restored the might of our military and defended America’s sovereignty. The list of his  accomplishments is long.  He does what he says he will do and is putting America first.

I hear the sound of sleepy crickets when I ask a Biden supporter to name me three sterling accomplishments of Joe Biden, whether as a Senator or Vice President, no matter. Joe Biden, almost 50 years in politics and nothing. No substantive legacy follows in Joe Biden’s wake.

The complete opposite of President Trump, Joe Biden is a loose lipped poltroon drooling like a freshly minted Trojan horse. A front man for the increasing and alarmingly Socialist and Islamic bent of his party. I reiterate, America does want to be a nation of shutdowns or shut in’s. The Biden-Saunders “manifesto” will not lead to the next Civil War. Among people that love this country, it may lead to the next Revolutionary War.

The Democratic Nationalist Press (DNP), as I call them, are nodding their collective masked heads towards sniffing Joe.  When they are not falsely or inaccurately reporting the news, they are making it up. The recent false and made up reporting of President Trump’s alleged disparaging remarks about some of our World War II Veterans is the most recent example. The DNP no longer makes any pretense that they support Democrats and are willing participants in spreading lies and promoting smear campaigns against President Trump and his supporters.  Their continuous dribble irritates any thinking American.  Remember, this is the same National Press that describes murder as “peaceful protests.”

This is not an election between two career politicians. President  Trump is not a politician he is a businessman. The economy of America has never met a greater champion than President Donald J. Trump.  Women, Latin and Black citizens are gainfully employed in greater numbers than at anytime in American history.  We are bouncing back from COVID, demonstrating our traditional resiliency as Americans.

The economic recovery in the Obama/Biden Administration was the slowest since World War II.  Obama hated small businesses, despised energy independence and paid our enemies off with large bribes. He racked up the most debt and had the slowest economic recovery of any President. What did Joe do with all the stimulus money? What did Obama and Biden accomplish in eight years? There was no criminal justice reform.  No end to homelessness.  No secure borders. No decrease in drug addiction.  No decrease in human trafficking. No improvement in education. No increases in medium incomes. No uniting Americans and promoting peace and prosperity for everyone.

President Trump kept every campaign promise he made.  Unheard of in my lifetime.  Without a doubt, President Trump has many contradictions, but at least they are human ones.  Easy to pick a driven man over a career politician, any time, any where.
