The recent terrorist attack in New Zealand got me thinking about something. It got me thinking how selectively we attach meaning to events in this age of intersectationally and victimhood. Now I am no expert on intersectionality but what I can gather is that it is a catch all word for collective oppression even if oppression doesn’t exist. I would even go as far to argue that no one even knows what the word intersectionality means.  Why New Zealand? Well because it seems that doing what some fundamentalist Islamic jihadis do to other Muslims is less of a deal than a white evil criminal does. Why, because being a Muslim on the rakings of victimhood is higher than being white, heterosexual and male.

After reading the professional social media troll job of the 73 plus pages manifesto of the main Christchurch shooter. I realized that he was only interested in three things: hate, murder and trolling the mainstream media. It was if he knew that key words like Donald Trump, PewDiePie, Anders Behring Breivik and Candace Owens would peek the ire of a media that is willing to do all it can to blame Donald Trump, conservatism and white men for all the ills of society in the modern age of intersectionality and victimhood. True, he referenced Nelson Mandela as well, but as expected, the former leader of the terrorist military wing of the African National Congress in South Africa would be ignored, because black and African ranks high in the top twenty-five of victimhood as well.

It is as if the mainstream media ignore similar attacks and atrocities because they do not feed into their narrative. There was no Western media coverage of the Fulani jihadists who raided the Nigerian Christian villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area this past week, burning more than 100 homes, wounding dozens and killing 52 people. In addition, there was barely a peep when Boko Haram killed over a hundred Christians in Northen Nigeria destroying as many if not more homes. Clearly Islamic fundamentalist hate Christians in Nigeria, but you will die before you see any of this in the mainstream news. The same can be said of Islamic jihadists in the mainly Christian eastern region of the Congo and CopticChristians in Egypt.

This is not even restricted to Christians but Shia Muslims also. From Pakistan to Kabul attacks on Mosque demonstrate a similar level of devastation as we saw in Christchurch. A recent attack in Kabul by a suicide bomber resulted in the deaths of more than 50 people and wounding 94. I am not saying this is reflective of Islam, since 95% of Muslims do not engage in violence. But I am saying that Western media will intentionally ignore these events to push the synthetic narrative, without objective data, that white supremacy is on the rise and that it is due to American political discourse.

As a Black man, I want to make it clear I am not defending white supremacy. Supremacy beliefs of any kind are not only foul but equally incorrect and inaccurate. But I am defending math, and if you add up all the deaths caused by white supremist attacking churches and mosque worldwide since the election of President Trump and all the deaths caused by fundamentalist jihadis attacking churches and mosque worldwide during the same period, one would see that the former is a rarer occurrence than the latter.

Now back to this murderous bigot.  Although he is being labeled as a right wing white supremist, in his manifesto he clearly states the opposite.  He wrote that he was not a conservative stating “conservatism is corporatism in disguise, I want no part of it” and that “The nation with the closest political and social values to my own is the People’s Republic of China.” Clearly this is more left leaning socialist communism than Republicanis.

I consider this a classic troll job because he also makes clear of his intention which was “to create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide within the United States. This conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines. This balkanization of the US will not only result in the racial separation of the people within the United States ensuring the future of the White race on the North American continent, but also ensuring the death of the “melting pot” pipe dream. Furthermore, this balkanization will also reduce the USA’s ability to project power globally…

Now back to the cult of victimhood and intersectionality.  This entire event has been singularly displayed in terms of labeling one group the victim and the other the oppressor. The victim in this case are peaceful Muslims and the oppressor a white Australian gun lover.  There is no attempt to blame the individual for this deed but rather select groups of people, in this case Christians, whites, gun right supporters and men. The first thing that came out of AOC mouth was to blame the NRA and sincere Christians who offer prayers for the victims. This would never come out of her mouth if Muslims, who frequently offer prayers for similiar scaled events in the West because that goes against the I-code.

But this is the age we live in, an age in which intersectionality for it to exist, requires a constant and concentrated focus on racial and ethnic identity.  Doing such only ends up making all that ascribe to this dogma live with this dysfunctional mindset based on daily persecution for immutable traits regardless of circumstances.  Therefore, we end up with fake hate crime hoaxes as we recently saw with Jussie Smollett. Smollett basically out of anger, blamed others by pointing fingers at a group of folks out of the intersectionality rankings: white, homophobic, Trump supporters so he could get others too feel sorry for him just to attract attention and avoid personal responsibility for his situation. He may be the first person to make 5 to 6 figures a week, who is on TV, with songs playing on the airwaves to see himself as a victim because he hates Trump, Trump supporters and didn’t in his mind, get the pity party he wanted.

Sadly, he will not be the last and was not the first since the election of President Trump. There was the Beloit College Muslim student who wrote anti-Muslim graffiti on his own dorm room door and the black member of a church in Greenville, Mississippi, who set it on fire and spray painted with the words “Vote Trump” on the building. There was also the 18-year-old Drake University student who wrote racist notes to himself and the New York woman who told police she was driving home when four teens confronted her, yelled “Trump 2016 telling her that she wasn’t welcome there. There was also the waitress in Texas who blamed racist cops for an offensive note targeting Mexicans and the Kansas State University student that reported graffiti left on his car. “Go Home N***** Boy” and “Whites Only,” that turns out they both wrote the notes themselves. Even Muslims have gotten in on the action. Right after Trump’s victory, a Muslim woman in New York claimed to have been attacked by a group of Donald Trump supporters on a New York subway. She too eventually admitted that she contrived the entire event to get attention because she was having problems with her father. These are only a handful of the many hate crime hoaxes since Trump was elected President, but they will never make the light of corporate media because they do not fit the prescribed storyline.

This is where we have come in 2019 America, where there is more value placed on being a victim from a supposedly oppressed group than taking personal responsibility. We have devolved into a social system this is not only acceptable behavior but is also applauded and encouraged. As such intersectionality has resulted into a victimhood Olympics of sociopathicbehavior where you wear your intersectionality victim medal around your neck like the congressional medal of honor or the Purple Heart.

The progressive liberal democratic Russiangate narrative is like the creature from the Black Lagoon and the Blob mixed together. It continues to evolve into a different mutant beast from day to day. It will mutate and alter as the Democrats in Congress see fit but no matter what, it will not go away for a long time. As it goes on, the only reality is that we will continue to hear the left scream RUSSIA and RUSSAIN COLLUSION. Why do we know this? Because Cummings, Nadler and Schiff all are on record basically saying that Trump will be under investigation for the duration of his presidency, with or without evidence. The scorched earth approach of the house is likely to turn up something for randomization shows that something is likely to stick some where when you throw stuff all around the room.

I find it comical that Democrats for example are still making a big fuss about Trump’s tax returns as if Putin has sent him a 1099-MISC tax form not to mention that US Tax returns are just digests of a person's wages and deductions. There is no special line in them requesting all income from black people, women, Asians or Russians for that matter seeing that a personal tax return is not a comprehensive leger of monetary transactions. Maybe the House Democrats do expect or think that Putin or the KBG will be sending Trump a 1099-MISC, but I doubt it.

Democrats as many Americans expect Trump not to be impeached for collusion with Russia nor should he. If you want to keep it one hundred, Trump’s true crime was running for President and beating Hillary fair and square after the establishment and its media had prognosticated that he would not and that a Trump victory was impossible. Democrats will never man-up and admit this because they are too stupid. Think about it, only an idiot blames one factor or individual for everything that is wrong all the time incessantly especially as it pertains to political outcomes. Now there is nothing wrong with Democrats blaming Russia and maybe there could be some good too come of it. However, if it is just to get Trump because one is a sore loser, the price to pay maybe hell.

Possibly some good albeit unintentional, could come from this as I said. Maybe by investigating everything Trump ever did could lead to something positive like better enforcement of financial laws & regulations, maybe even lead us to finally address the criminal class on Wall Street. I do not think that I am the only one that think that it is hypocritical to go after and imprison Paul Manafort and none of the big wigs that caused the financial crisis of 2007-08 or the Podesta brothers. To keep it real, Manafort’s only crime was working for a victorious Trump's campaign. But if nothing sticks, as I said prior, there will be hell to pay from the nearly 63 million people who voted for Trump, including Reagan Democrats (Democrats that voted for Obama at least once) and Independents. This will only reinforce the narrative that Democrats are stepping on each other, using investigations, many of which are duplicitous, and their new power in the House to fish for any dirt they can find in Trump's past, present and future (2020 campaign). Many, even some never Trumper’s will begin to ask simple questions because it really appears that the feelings of Democrats are presented to take precedence over their vote simply because some people don’t like Trump plane and simple. Causing personal discomfort and having one’s feelings hurt are not grounds to remove or impeach a sitting president. It is as if as I presented before, Trump’s actual crime is having the impudence of running for president and winning.

But such is the nature of the fickle, take Wikileaks for example. A lot of Hillary supporters, to this day, attribute culpability to Wikileaks for her loss. Now they have curved Manning for refusing to testify against Wikileaks.  This democratic theater will only further divide the nation and reflects a precursor to totalitarian rule, since they really do not care about the country rather unfettered power and control. All and all, this manufactured confusion staged by the Democrats' is grotesquely irrational and reprehensible – and all due to their maniacal preoccupation to unseat and destroy Trump.

All of this should have been expected. Not only is the Democratic party leadership hellbent on impeachment they remain steady as she goes, which means they do not have to focus on offering telling policy that would benefit all citizens in general but rather will result in further division because it enables them to exhaust all their energy on the exploitation of identity politics.  Moreover, it sends a more draconian message – don’t fck with the establishment or we will throw the legal books at you. This is what is meant by weaponizing politics and the legal system. And why do we have all of this? Because Hillary Clinton’s willy nilly proposing collusion between Trump and Russia (Putin). Now, however it is falling apart and all the same Democrats saying wait for the findings of the Mueller report are pulling full steam ahead to show how mad and how much they hate Trump, which means they require another lame excuse to blame Trump for Hillary losing and because the Mueller report most likely will not validate their Russian conspiracy claims. LMBAO.

To be sincere, I want all this Russian shi# to be over but unfortunately, proponents of this conspiracy are too invested psychologically in this surrealism to get over it, even if the Mueller reports demonstrates there was no collusion, they will be like the cats that say Tupac and Elvis are still alive. They (especially the predominantly left-leaning US media) will be the modern day equals to Tiberius Gracchus (At least what I understand from reading Plutarch) and other Roman emperors who used lese-majesty laws to go against Octavius and other opponents, including senators.

I’m just saying this Russian ish is foul, phony and unproductive and only an idiot can accept such as true given the cats promulgating such in the past have interfered in elections for decades around the globe inclusive even of murdering elected leaders. It took almost a decade for the US to get out of the McCarthy era, but 2019 cats too emotional, poorly read, and woke to get where I’m coming from. Funny to me because the Democrats do not see, with this Russina stuff, they are just reaassuring President Trump's re-election.

Faux is an adjective which means not genuine, fake or false. Outrage is a noun which references a tremendously strong reaction of anger, shock, or indignation. Journalism is also a noun which refers to the profession of writing for newspapers, magazines, or news websites or preparing news to be broadcast. On the surface and in fact it is obvious that neither of the two nouns should ever be preceded by the adjective faux, but in 2019 they are as common as coffee and cream or Kool-Aid and sugar. Recently it has been brought to the fore that Tucker Carlson (who in my opinion has the best opinion show on television) said some things in jest ten years ago that today has some upset. The question is for me, is this sincere and genuine or faux temperament?

I think this is as Shakespeare wrote, Much to Do About Nothing and I will attempt to explain why. First, what person hasn’t said something that has been perceived to be offensive by someone? Let alone something years past that was ignored for the cultural norms of the time in which they were said were no big deal? I find these attacks on Carlson, and the call for a boycott on his show’s advertisers threatening for all and even reflective of totalitarianism. Totalitarianism being a system of life and/or government that is dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state or central beliefs proffered by a mob majority that attempts to control and direct all aspects of individual life through coercion and repression. In this sense, totalitarianism is the antithesis of individual freedom. I find this frightening, hypocritical and inconsistent. Last, no person has the right not to be offended – NO ONE.

For example, if Tucker can be ruined for what he said ten years ago, why not hold rappers to the same standard. Snoop Dogg on Dr. Dre’s Bitches ain't shit stated and I quote: Bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks, Lick on these nuts and suck the dick, Gets the fuck out after you're done. Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon all wore black face, with Kimmel pretending to be Karl Malone and Oprah Winfrey but there is no extremely strong reaction of anger, shock, or indignation. Then there is the founder of Media Matters for America President Angelo Carson racist and pejorative comments regarding transgender’s and people of color (I hate the term people of color). I would be inaccurate if I did not include the New York Times editorial board member Sarah Jeong who tweeted "Oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men," “#cancelwhitepeople,” “White people have stopped breeding. you’ll all go extinct soon. that was my plan all along” and “Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.” I would be remiss if I did not mention Joy Reids homophobic blog post and comments or CNN producer Delaney Strunk's and Matthew Yelgsias racist comments.

I understand some will consider me an apologist for bigotry, but I do not see it. This is not about conservative or liberal because I know many on both spectrums that see tweet and statement archeology as vile and a useless act unless one desires to punish one they disagree with.  The outrage isn’t real, and it is time people admit they just hate the targeted individuals’ beliefs and ideas. If it upsets you that someone uses the word faggot, or nigga, or calls someone an ass hole, then the problem is likely you. I have and continue to call folks ass holes because it is an apt description of cats that spew flatulence from their oral cavity in the form of nonsense in sentence form. Frankly, if it hurts their feelings I DO NOT GIVE A FCK. Moreover, it is clear the faux disdain is mainly from the east and west coast enclaves of liberal hypocrisy. If you see blue check twitter outrage cats like @GeorgeTakei [NY], @brianstelter [NY], Scott Dworkin [NY], @JuddLegum [DC], @joncoopertweets [NY], @justicedems [NY & DC], @tedlieu [CA], @JYSexton [NY but claims GA], Qasim Rashid [DC], MichaelSkolnik [UKN], & @zachheltzel [LA] are just a few who seem to have a problem. All I am saying you have no right to tell me or even deprive me of what I want to watch or read because you do not like it – change the channel.  But this is about the control of the idea space of what folks autocratically think others should not even be exposed to because they are smarter and know best and I speak of this first hand.

Recently I was banned from twitter because I responded to an underhanded tweet by Judd Legum suggesting Trump supporters were too dumb and stupid to understand their support. I did not appreciate this nor appreciate any white man telling this black man that he is in essence a dumb negro. So I sent him some some lyrics of one of my homeboy’s songs, Big Mota. Now mind you twitter allowed me to share tis video on YouTube many times but when I sent the lyrics to Judd they banned me for a week.  When I returned, one of my followers (@LikkleGalBigGun) asked what I did to get banned and I said in quotes, I sent this in response to a derogatory tweet to a white city boy: 'Faggot ass nigga bought his chain and went and made a diss It's extorting season pussy nigga, get in line Marquis don’t make me turn your block into a columbine If you disrespect a man, you get the consequences These niggas tell you anything for some damn attention.' Within a minute I was banned permanently.

This is not about Tucker Carlson but rather folks who are too afraid to debate or even listen to views different from theirs. They are cowards and would rather call one names like racist, bigot, islamaphobe or stupid than address facts. These cats do not care about what he said for their primary objective is to silence him by depriving him from being able to work. This is easy to do by finding innocuous nothings in the form of words to strike up partisan points.  Again, this is about thought. They want to tell you what to say and how you can say it. They want to tell you what tot think and how to think. These people do not respect our constitutional republic. This is why Thomas Jefferson wrote: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.” He was correct I remain to count the days until this same unhinged mob begins to burn books, and best believe it is coming and soon and the day when we all dig up every word a cat anyone ever said will be the day we weaponize politics and validate the existence of thought crimes.

I reckon it is about time I finally made my peace with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. By peace I mean saying what I truly think of this product of upscaled Westchester county New York. I really didn’t give her too much attention until recently. Sure, I laughed at her a lot, especially her lack of understanding of basic math and the political process. However, this week took the case when she attacked moderate Demokkkrats for not following her hook, line and sinker to vote the way she wanted them to vote on HR 1112, or what is called the "Charleston loophole" bill.  I won’t go into detail on the Bill, but I will discuss what AOC vehemently rejected to: A Republican amendment requiring that undocumented immigrants who try to buy guns be reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

From what I understand and have read from the mouth of AOC, she does not seem to understand the way votes are made by representatives, this is too say that they vote for their constituency and not those of the NY 14th District of which she represents. This aside from the fact that she thinks that the former bartender thinks that the three “chambers” of government are the “presidency, the congress and the house.” I say this because as stated previously, all those other representatives were elected by their constituents and are there to represent their interests, not AOC, the 14th District of New York or the Demokkkratic party.  I do not know how much it cost to get an education from Boston University, but her presence alone should make all parents leery of sending their children there.

AOC won her race with 16 percent voter turnout. This means that of the 700,000 living in her district, just 112,000 bothered to vote. This is far from a mandate let alone reflects a plurality of the district. Yet she parades around and behaves as if she is God’s gift to the world, righteous even. Yet when Demokkkrats from other districts had the gall to represent the views of the people that put them in office, she went to bully mode and threatened to place all moderates who did not vote for what she wanted on a list. Need I remind folk that it appears that if other representatives dare to represent their own states and their interests, not go along with her, she reduces herself to threats and the tactics of bullying. Bullying is to “seek to harm” (be voted out of office), or “intimidate, or coerce” another individual usually in a vulnerable and weaker position.

It also seems as if AOC takes the approximate 110,000 votes she did gain as a mandate to rule the nation. I also imagine that that Boston University education provided the self-proclaimed democratic socialist no instruction in history. Specifically, history of how communism was started and implemented in places the likes of China, Russia and North Korea and equally the results of these nations. This is frightening, for if she is an accurate representation of young pampered, self-absorbed, spoiled and easily offended by words Americans today, we will be a dead nation before the twelve years (which we have seen before) in which she proclaims the world will end because of cow farts and hamburger eating. Another history lessen she should revisit is that of Joe McCarthy. It was he in a similar tone, in the 1950’s who stated: In the 1950's Joe McCarthy proclaimed, "I have a list of 200 communists in the state department." The question to be asked next is, you find yourself will there be another list. This is the socialist communist way and once you are on a list, next thing you know you will have the thought police knocking at your door in the middle of the night.

Now back to the amendment to the bill. Why even have more extensive background checks on firearm sales if it excludes notifying any law enforcement authorities if an alarm goes off during the background check? If she was serious about this bill, this would be of singular importance, otherwise, she doesn’t really care and exhibits that her true intention is abolish gun ownership for all Americans – that is except for illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrant gun ownership matters.  Likewise, it appears that laws that deny US citizens Second Amendment rights should be enforced while illegal immigrants are encouraged to break laws by crossing our borders uninhibited.

These are just a few of my concerns. I couldn’t understand the Green New Deal after reading it several times because it read like something my 13-year-old daughter would write – logic and objectives included. From giving money to those un-willing to work to cow fart control and trains to Europe so we can get rid of all airplanes. Notwithstanding it is written as if all the other nations will do the same and will suddenly scrap their Air Forces, so we can all live happily ever after. Add to this ending having children (maybe therefore she and her kind are okay with murdering babies once out of the womb if their mother decides such for any reason. Then we get back to math.  The problem with renewables is that we cannot store wind or solar energy and if there is no sun or wind there is no energy. Add to this it is estimated that there is not enough land (or silver) in America to generate enough solar power for our needs or room for wind turbines to generate enough power for our needs, all we will end up doing is burning more wood (deforrestation) and killing all of the native species of birds in The U.S.

I do not know if AOC believes what she says. What I do know is that a sovereign nation without borders and mass immigration will be impossible to provide free healthcare, housing and a basic income to all. Eventually resources meet their peak breaking point.  AOC is a socialist, but always remember, socialism is merely the intermediary step before full communism.

Speaking on liberal progressive Democrats, Malcom X once stated: "The white Liberal differs from the white Conservative only in one way; the Liberal is more deceitful, more hypocritical, than the Conservative. Both want power, but the White Liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro's friend and benefactor and by winning the friendship and support of the Negro, the White Liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or a weapon in this political football game, that is constantly raging, between the White Liberals and the White Conservatives. The American Negro is nothing, but a political football." From this statement one can decipher two things: 1] that Malcom X had no love or respect for the progressive liberal left of American politics and 2] in many respect, he viewed Blacks who did in the similar vein as mindless serfs being conditioned to accept without question as their slave ancestors did.

What is ironic is what he spoke that day in 1963 is the present reality for Black America. In just 30 years, the Democratic Party has morphed into some sort of Star Trek space anomaly. When Clinton was President as well as Obama, border protection and building walls along the border was all the rage. Presently it is not and the new bevy of the Democratic mind meld are in lock step to make sure open borders are the future of America. Why? Because the Democrats are fighting for illegal aliens and have become more valuable to their ability to acquire and maintain power, that they have replaced African Americans on their hierarchy of political social Darwinism.

Everywhere one looks Blacks are taken a second place behind illegal immigrants. One of the biggest places we see this is in the criminal justice system. Take California for example. Since the late 1980s, activist in California were trying to obtain government funding to assist in reducing over crowing in jails and hire more public defenders.  The funding was never available according to law makers. The tune is different today because funding is being cut for public defenders in California while inordinate funds are being found to protect the rights of criminal illegal aliens. Last year in California, lawmakers approved $45 million to expand legal services for immigrants to assist more than 2 million people living in the state illegally and to protect them from deportations. Two years before that, the state put in place a “sanctuary state” bill to expand “sanctuary city policies, prohibiting state and local law enforcement agencies, including school police and security departments, from using resources to investigate, interrogate, detain, detect or arrest people for immigration enforcement purposes.”

This is happening all across the country. Recently in Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced plans to set aside hundreds of thousands of dollars to form an immigrant legal defense program and similar efforts are being introduced in San Francisco and Seattle. In Washington State a bill was just passed that prohibits discrimination by employers and landlords “based on citizenship or immigration status.” As one writer and radio host put it: “In other words, if an employer had two equally-qualified candidates to choose from — one a citizen and one an illegal immigrant who had been deported several times — and the employer hired the citizen, this could be grounds for a lawsuit on the immigrant’s behalf…Under Washington state law, they would have the right to a cause of action against that employer if they were discriminated against because of their legal status...Now federal law might come in and have something to say about that, but this is what Washington state law would say.

I do not mind helping people but I do expect US citizens should come first. In California, Blacks are suffering yet are being ignored. Although Black people in California are just 9 percent of the population of Los Angeles County, yet are nearly 40 percent of the homelessness. The same is true for San Francisco. The research results are startling. While 5 to 6 percent of San Francisco’s population is black, more than 40 percent of the city’s homeless population is black.

Albeit I am focused on race, on the micro level, on the macro level all American citizens loose when our resources are not used for the tax payers that provide them. Clearly Democrats have other interest than serving the people born in America, and have all but relegated the Black vote to side chick status, fact is US policy should focus on US citizens and the working men and women who want access to opportunity and a safe place to live. This is only possible if we address illegal immigration. Economically, it has been estimated that Illegal immigration costs taxpayers in all 50 states approximately $90 billion. In California it cost $12.3 billion to educate the children of illegal immigrants annually in grades K-12.

The progressive focus on taking care of criminal illegal aliens severely impacts outcomes for the worse in the African American community. First most illegal aliens come to America with very few years of schooling. This means they will likely end up in low-paying wage jobs. Not only will this put them in competition with poor blacks in the US with similar educational attributes but also other immigrants who came to the US before them. Thus with a larger pool of low skilled workers, wages will go down because there will be a surplus of workers to jobs. This point was hammered by then-chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, the late great Barbara Jordan of Texas in 1994 when she testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. She stated: "Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. … Failure to develop more effective strategies to curb unlawful immigration has blurred distinctions between legal and illegal immigrants. ... The Commission is particularly concerned about the impact of immigration on the most disadvantaged within our already resident society — inner city youth, racial and ethnic minorities, and recent immigrants who have not yet adjusted to life in the U.S."

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, recently said that "We are a nation and land of laws, not just [one where] some people are subject to laws and others are not." This maybe the only time to date I have agreed with her. However, I wonder why this isn’t the standard with respect illegal immigration? Because Black people are not reproducing enough to provide them with the unconditional and unearned votes we give them. Through democratic supported eugenic genocide in the form of abortions and Planned Parenthood, Blacks just do have as many children as the used to. And if democrats get their way for a mother to be able to decide to murder a child after it has been born, our population will really start to evaporate. This is one reason why AOC support people not having more children – just bring them over from 2000 miles below the Mexican border already made. Yes, in 2019, Liberals side with illegal immigrants over Blacks born in America, for criminal illegal aliens are the new black.

Over my lifetime, I have been asked numerous questions over various subject matter.  Many in jest and passing and others due to my teaching and research.  However, recent times seem to have me entertaining one question at a frequency I have never prior experienced: why and how, could you as a Black man, vote for and support President Donald Trump? In typical fashion I answer the query terse and succinctly without any wiggle room for them to ask for any additional clarification.   As such their response is usually in the form of cursing, name calling or not having either the information or vocabulary to refute my position. This time I will formally address my views in totality, insofar as much as I can based on present temporal limitations.

First, I was born in the United States of America and ergo I am an American. I believe full heartedly in the slogan and impetus behind the slogan MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. I have lived outside of the USA for years. In African nations, the likes of Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa and traveled spending months in places including but not limited to Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Malawi.  Most folk that say America was never great from my experiences, have never lived let alone traveled to a third world country. They have never had to live not being able to drink water out of a faucet without fear of contracting fatal bacteria or dying. They have never had to live in places where the roads are truly undrivable around a nation and having electricity is fleeting, irregular and rare. They have never had to risk parasitic infections like river blindness from just swimming or even taking a shower or fear walking down the street or across a field for fear of stepping on a landmine. No most are spoiled, self-centered narcissists that take such things for granted. Now I will accept some may say that America was never great due to its history of genocide against native Americans and slavery, but I was never a slave and realize via experience I have it better here than anywhere else in the world. I acknowledge the plight we as African Americans suffer due to slavery, but I do not live in the past, I progress towards tomorrow. I do acknowledge this nation's legacy of racism, hatered, segregation and Jim Crow, and that it will always be a reality, but to repeat my prior statement - I do not live in the past, I progress towards tomorrow. I am not a victim, for victims have no control or choices (I have both).

Then there is the incessant proclamation of Trump being a racist. Me, I do not see it. In fact, I prefer competence over diversity. Now diversity is good, but I’d rather have a competent staff or physician or professor than have one placed on me because of their sex, ethnicity or gender who is dumb as a mf. But in all honesty, you can say or speak as you want, it is the policy that matters. Bill Clinton and Joe Biden spoke diversity and love for black folk but all we got were mandatory minimums, three strike laws, and the removal of black men from our communities and the dissolution of the black family unit. President Clinton did more to hurt Black folk than any insensitive statement made by President Trump. We do not even have to add that the Clinton Administration withdrew Pell Grant eligibility from people in prison through his signing of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. I would mention Obama but I have previously written about how he destroyed the Black economic base.

Therefore, policy matters more than words. It was President Trump who gave HBCUs more funding than any other President. It was Trump who appointed 1st black woman nominated to be Marine brigadier general in the Marine Corps. It was Trump who designated the first national monument to honor African American Civil War soldiers ever in the United States and made Medger Evers home a national historical monument and landmark. These things are cool but are just cosmetic to me. It is the policy of the Trump administration that I am most impressed with, policies that benefit all Americans.  But I will stick to black folk first.

Under Trump. African-American unemployment is at a record low, total African-American employment has increased by 976,000 since President Trump’s election and the poverty rate for African Americans reachedits lowest level since slavery (joke is mine). Add to this President Donald J. Trump’s Opportunity Zone Incentives, which are promoting and resulting in record investment in mainly Black economically distressed communities. Also, the Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency has placed a major focus on Black and Women business development. One of the least known actions of the Trump administration is legislation he signed into law that forgave more than $300 million in Hurricane Katrina related debt for New Orleans, Louisiana and Dillard and Xavier Universities in particular. There is also the criminal justice reform signed into law under Trump called the First Step Act. I could go on, but the media has set your narrative for you. Me, I read and form my own views by myself. 

I also agree with Trump’s immigration and bringing US military home from all these endless and futile regimes change wars. With respect to immigration, I am for it, it is illegal immigration I am against. No other nation in the world would let people come in their country with which they have no idea who they are, or what is their history, criminal or public health wise.  I live in a house with walls and they are not immoral. Instead they protect my family. If a hoard of 10 or more folks came to my front door demanding entry to my home just because they ask or want too, If I do not know them they are not getting in. If they own their own accord decide to come in anyway by trying to break down my doors or come through the window, they are criminals and will be SHOT. America is my home, and, in my view, it is reasonable for me to ask who is at my door or border and for them to ask permission to come in, point period. Likewise, I fight my own fights not others.  Libya, Syria, Yemen or Iraq has never done anything to me, so why should I fight for them? Answer no reason. The reality is that when illegal immigrants enter, jobs in dry-wall, construction, plumbing and other areas mean lower wages for black folk working and born in America. Then there is the reality that we have homeless people born in America that we do not or cannot take care of for spending an average net fiscal cost in government services for illegal aliens of $65,000 or $135 Billion annually. 

I could continue but I will not. I would rather state my position and let others decide for themselves. None the less. I voted for Trump, support Trump and will never get tired of all this winning. So, I say you do you and I do me and don’t call me names because your vocabulary is limited, and you get your information from television pundits rather than reading to inform yourself.

One of the most contentious issues brought about as a result of the 2016 Trump Clinton Presidential debates concerned if Trump lost, would he accept the results.  This was never asked of Hillary Clinton, mostly because the costal elites and East coast media machine had decided it was a foregone conclusion that she would win, but she didn’t.  Now it is the democrats who seem to have a problem accepting the outcome of the presidential election.

Now comes the kicker. Since they are unable and unwilling to accept the outcome of the people, they have started a new movement to skirt the assurances of the constitution and a representative government by doing the outlandish – replacing the electoral college with the popular vote. The vehicle for this is called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. This compact is comprised of 11 states and the District of Columbia on board. Recently, Colorado is set to become the latest member of this group of states joined together to bypass the electoral college system. Yes, that is correct, and if successful, it would give the 2020 presidential election to whoever wins the popular vote. Although it could only go into effect if states representing at least 270 electoral college votes pass the law, it remains a frightening proposition to know that this how people who frequently scream voter suppression, are in their own way suppression the vote of the citizens of their own state. As it stands, the states in the compact has 172 electoral votes.  

This is why the framers, via the twelfth Amendment, instituted the electoral college, to prevent group think and highly populated urban areas to have more say than less populated and rural areas. When we vote to elect a president, we are really selecting a slate of electors to indemnify that the candidate who wins in that state with a plurality of the votes gets all of the state’s electoral votes.  This system has worked very well.  However, sometimes as we recall from the 2000 election, the Electoral College can result in a candidate that wins the popular vote can still not become president.   Likewise, in the election of 1992, Bill Clinton received a majority of electoral votes and was the duly elected president, despite the fact that he received only 43 percent of the popular votes. Although the introduction of a third party candidate, Ross Perot was the main reason for this, Bill Clinton did not win a majority of the popular vote in either of his elections in either 1992 or 1996, yet he was named as President because he won an Electoral College majority in both elections.

I think democrats need to think twice before they take us down a slippery slope to re-write, changes or alter the constitution. In particular, if we pick and choose only the parts of the constitution they do not like. Although they continue to scream Russia stole/hacked and interfered in our electoral process without evidence other than Ads on twitter and Facebook, and equally contend that people are so dumb and stupid that memes made us vote the way we did, or that Pro-Beyoncé and Anti-Beyoncé were targeted to split the Black vote, they never ever consider that Hillary Clinton was just the perfect image of unlikableness (i made this word up) ever to run for the highest office in the land.

We must accept the constitution as it is. Why? Because James Madison and Hamilton really didn’t want The United States to be a democracy, but rather a constitutional republic.  They both wrote extensively about this with Madison being mainly concerned with tribes, mobs or ‘Factions’ (pro-life, pro-choice, pro illegal immigration, anti-illegal immigration, free trade, anti-trade, isolationist, globalist etcetera) that could hurt the nation by violating the rights of and having more power than other citizens based on where they lived. Specifically, he stated that such groups could possibly: “sacrificeto its ruling passion or interest both the public good and the rights of othercitizens.
This is why we need the Electoral College and why it should never be obviated from our national political process.  To suggest the opposite is infantile and demonstrates a lack of understanding of the Constitution of the United States and reading of the Federalist Papers (expressly Federalist #10). Moreover, to change to the results of the popular vote to select our President would be true voter suppression.

The height of arrogance is thinking that the world revolves around you. This has been a truth since Alexander Pope penned his Essay on Man - in particular with respect to western European thought - thoughts that resulted in the political philosophies of Imperialism, colonialism and neocolonialism. This purview of the world is alive and well in the progressive liberal enclaves of the United States especially among the uber-rich as confirmed in the recent statement made by Bill Maher suggesting that we in Red state America “want to be” like he and his ilk.

Nothing is farther from the truth. Clearly assuming that others want to be like you without even asking said people if such was their desire is not only a sign of being out of touch with reality but additionally an indicator of extreme pomposity. If he would take the time to come to places like my small town of 2900 in Georgia, he would see the cost of living is much better, that our communities are safer and way cleaner than any west coast or east coast urban bastion. Clearly the self-serving and self-centered egotistical Bill Mayer believes that the rest of the world in “fly-over country” want to have and be like the other elite coterie of coastal numskulls who think they know it all.

Unlike Mr. Maher, we admit we do not know it all, but have the ability to reason and think for ourselves.  We do not need liberals from big cities, which have been run in the ground by ill-fated democratic policies, dictation how we should think, what to think and/or believe. No we do not want to be Like San Francisco where human waste and needles are frequent and regularly seen on the streets, we do not want to be Baltimore where they are willing to spend $200,000 to remove each confederate statue but they cannot afford to heat their schools and where one-third of High Schools in Baltimore, last year, had zero students proficient in math and nine out of ten black boys in Baltimore City are not reading at grade level. We do not want to be Portland or Los Angeles where homeless is growing out of control. We do not desire to be like California at all. Why would one want to copy a state that has 25 percent of the entire nation’s homeless population?

We do not need to waste money to buy a good meal and a strong drink, we do not need craft beer albeit they are readily available, and surely do not need to throw-away money at a "Michelin-starred" restaurant to provide artificial and cosmetic self-value. We are just fine with not wanting to be like or hang with folk that smile and obtain pleasure from looking down on others. We are just fine with restrooms for men and women. We are just fine with not having boys who call themselves girls, against all the evidence of Genetics, Anatomy, Physiology and basic Biology, wrestle, race and box against women (breaking their skulls).  We are fine with men not wearing dresses, going to the gun show regularly and pick-up trucks.  One would have to be serious dumb fck to even think let alone state for all to here that the only jobs we have are "guarding prisoners or murdering chickens." Fool so out of touch he doesn’t know that you can’t murder a chicken (chickens are not human). Yes Mr. Maher. We are just fine. Maher and his kind consider themselves paragons, as being the perfect example of quality. The fact of the matter is that they are sore losers, shallow, materialistic and in 2020, they will be as they did in 2016, asking themselves how and why the democrats lost in 2020.

After observing the events of the prior few weeks, I have come to two embarrassingly somber conclusions: 1) many Americans are not knowledgeable of civics as it regards the type of government we function under and 2) people are proud to display such a lack of knowledge for all to see.  America is a constitutional republic.  It is not a democracy.  Democracy is a synonym for mob rule and our founding fathers were very much aware of this principle. So much so that they defined a set of rules for the government to function within (the Constitution) and a treaty between the United States Federal Government and its citizenry called the Bill of Rights.

For as long as I have been alive, I have never seen a march specifically designed to take away a civil right.  I have seen marches pro or for civil rights but never a march for example, to take away the vote, or to take away free speech or any other basic right as outlined in the Bill of Rights.  But the recent manipulated and inorganic march against guns (which it should be called) is a first. Although they are too cowardly to state such openly, it is really a march to obviate the second amendment, since each argument and position taken expresses a semantic desire for some policy action to ‘infringe’ upon the Second amendment – an inalienable right as stated in the Bill of Rights.  Let me attempt to explain.

The general tenor is the suggestion that the second amendment is outdated, and for some 97-year-old liberal, “a relic of the 18th century.” I find this both simplistic and indication of a few lipofuscin granules on someone’s prefrontal cortex. The fact is defending against any tyranny by the government or foreign actor is a constant in the world we live in and to remove the possibility of such never occurring in the USA when we know men are both in good and evil form, would be dumb. Just as idiotic as the assertion that the second amendment is about hunting (which it is not) or that it was speaking about muskets (which it was not since muskets were the assault rifle of the day).

Appears that this self-absorbed and mindless horde of gun grabbers is too thoughtless to comprehend this let alone understand the history behind the genuine fear of government tyranny. Let me try and break it down.  The colonies once were run by the crown in England and as such, the original states were headed by appointed governors by the crown.  In Massachusetts, one of those persons was General Thomas Gage. He operated under several laws established by the British Parliament to exercise control of the colonies one of which was called the Townshend Acts. These four acts enabled the British to extract revenue in the form of taxes and tariffs and more importunately, gave them the power to suspend any form of representative assembly the colonist formed. They carried out enforcement of these functions via the British military by Writs of Assistance. These were documents that allowed for the redcoats to enter, search and seize anything from a private citizen they considered contraband. These were non-specific meaning that they did not require details for the search or where the search would be implemented (reason for the 4th amendment).

As one would reckon, the colonist did not like these actions and rebelled leading to the Boston Tea Party. After the Boston Tea Party in 1773, the British Crown and Parliament were mad as fuck at the colonies.  To show this anger, they passed the Coercive Acts in 1774 which many colonist found upsetting because it restricted town meetings (once a year) making them illegal, closed the Boston Port, made British official immune to prosecution and mandated that colonist by law would have to quarter British troops. Next the British put in place an import ban on firearms and gunpowder which was followed by actual house to house gun and gunpowder confiscation by British troops.

On one occasion, General Gage dispatched a garrison of troops to break up a meeting of citizens in Salem. There they were met by a few thousand-armed Americans young, old, male and female, for all Americans were armed and had plenty of powder to match. Given that there were only a couple thousand British troops in the colonies while Gage was governor, he realized it would be hard to enforce any of the laws aimed and controlling America, since there were many thousands of armed Americans in Massachusetts alone.

He went back to using Writs of Assistance to seize weapons and gun powder.  They could enforce these actions with the gun but failed to comprehend that the colonist considered the confiscation of their weapons through violence as an act of war. As history records, of all the things the British did, the most offensive to the colonist was seizing their guns and powder. This reached a fever on April 19, 1775, when British soldiers under the direction of Major ohn Pitcairn went to Lexington and Concord to seize the guns of the citizenry, starting the American War for Independence.

Therefore, after the Revolutionary War, the first three amendments of the Bill of rights dealt with speech, assembly, protest (1st), no infringements on gun ownership (2nd) and the quartering of troops in private homes (3rd). All of which are granted by God and not the government. Ergo, when the second amendment was written and ratified, its intent was that the civilian population would insofar as much as possible, have the same weapons as the military. Thus, it intentionally reads: “A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” It asserts via the employment of the comma’s, that the Second Amendment was to preserve and guarantee, NOT grant, the pre-existing God given right of individuals to keep and bear arms.

True, the 2nd amendment emphasizes the need for a militia, being a member of any militia (well-regulated or not), was written in such a way to say being in a militia was not a precondition or requirement for citizens to exercise the right to keep arms. This is clarified in Federalist Number 46. James Madison wrote: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia, by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia, it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned despite the legions which surround it.” Thus, individual Americans have a God given legal right of self-defense against the state and/or any foreign invader via the 2nd Amendment.

Alexander Hamilton too noted this in Federalist 29 when he wrote: “That there may happen cases in which the national government may be necessitated to resort to force cannot be denied. Our own experience has corroborated the lessons taught by the examples of other nations; … If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair” He later adds: “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their PRIVATE arms.” 

Simply put, the Second Amendment is the fail safe for the citizenry against authoritarianism and political mob-rule tyranny. Now I know the first argument will be this can’t happen today and that only the police/military should have these “weapons of war.”  Maybe, or maybe not is my response.  I grew up in the 1960s and in my life time I have seen tyranny mostly abroad. What if the Vietnamese had not been armed? They surely fought against tyranny albeit from abroad.  On the other hand it can be from the inside, as was the case with the Cambodian genocide carried out by the Khmer Rouge against people who were perceived to be in opposition of the regime. After Pol Pot banned guns, he followed it with the murder of between 1.5 to 3 million people.

Guns were the reason slavery could be carried out flawlessly, they enabled the ability for Leopold of Belgium to inflict genocide on more than 10 million Africans. Then there was Sharpsville in South Africa and the attacks on the Black Panther Party in Chicago and Los Angles in 1969. History shows us that the only African nation that was not colonized by a European power was Ethiopia, which ironically was the only African nation to have guns to fight of the effort to do so by Italy (under Mussolini). The same is true as I write this, in South Africa, the government under the leadership of its new President Cyril Ramaphosa voted to confiscate white-owned land without compensation.

Still albeit historical accurate, I would be vilified if I confronted either David Hogg or Emma Gonzales with this information, which I find strange, for if I were in a classroom I would not.  These are rude children whom think they know everything about everything. I know because I am a parent with 25 years in the game and a teacher of college students with the same amount of years in the game.  I question and confront students daily because they typically repeat what they hear and do not read or engage in critical thinking. This is not by mistake, it is neurological and reinforced by contingencies of reinforcement (habit). Why can’t we ask Hogg, or question his views and correct him when his facts are inaccurate? I do it every day in class. Why can’t we ask Emma Gonzales why she wears a flag of Cuba, a communist nation, from which her family had to flee because upon take power Castro seized all arms and killed more than 100,000 Cuban citizens? Isn’t this fair game? Why not ask them why they resort to bullying and name calling when people have differing yet valid views than theirs? Why not push back when they call all against their wishes simple want to “murder children”? Is what you push collective punishment? Do you think all gun owners should be held up to the shooter of your high school as a standard? Are you comfortable asking to privacy rights should be reduced and that second amendments rights should be infringed because that is what you want but don’t want your right of wearing the book bag you want infringed? Is that fair? Do you know what an assault rifle is or when and AR-15 semi-automatic ever been used on the battle field?

I will tell you why, because it is anatomical.  In the adolescent 14-24, the prefrontal cortex is still developing. Consequently, he rational part of a teen's brain (the prefrontal cortex) isn't fully developed and won't be until approaching age 30. Thus, as opposed of critical thinking, the Limbic system, the amygdala is the part of the brain they rely on to make decisions where as adults think with the prefrontal cortex. The amygdala is associated with emotions, impulses and aggression behavior. This is clearly on display.  For example, they call it a March for Our Lives (which is eerily like the annual Pro-Life “March For Life) yet they do not consider unborn babies lives and are funded by Planned Parenthood (more than 900 black babies are aborted per day- nearly half are repeat abortions) among others while at the same time calls the National Rifle Association “child killers.” They want black people to side with them in the consideration that police and the military should be the only ones to have (long) guns while they gun us down relentlessly in the streets everyday (sure we kill each other daily also but this isn’t the point). The oke seems to write itself - rich white kids and liberal elites have tricked Black Lives Matter to embrace All Lives Mattter and the Police State (only cops should have guns). They want the age of voting to be dropped to 16 yet want the age of gun ownership increased to 21 (another inconsistency).

Last, they are bad at math and citing statistics. If they were truly concerned about saving the lives of kids, Assault rifles would be at the bottom of the list. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2016 data shows 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 motor vehicle crashes, an average of 102 per day. According to researchers at John Hopkins and the CDC, there are 250,000 deaths per year due to medical error in the U.S., an average of 685 per day. Based on data from the National Vital Statistics System, Mortality, in 2016, there were more than 63,600 drug overdose deaths in the U.S., an average of 173 per day (a sizable number are between 15-20). Data collected by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis reveals that nearly 6,000 teen drivers ages 15-20 died from motor vehicle injuries because of distracted (cell phone use) driving, an average of 16 per day. According to the FBI, 1,604 people are killed by “knives and cutting instruments” annually, an average of 4.4 per day - 374 were killed by “rifles” in 2016, an average of 1.02 per day. But go ahead, you let your teenage child run your household and formulate fender government policy – not me.

I could continue but we all know that any military using AR-15 in battle against fully automatic MPT-76, FN SCAR-H or AK-47 (all fully automatic meaning pull thee trigger once it keeps firing) would be wiped out. What these kids are doing is using anger against law abiding gun owners, for they want all guns outlawed.  They want what Hitler did when he passed major gun control and seizure legislation. They are not progressives, they are totalitarians. They are more like the young generation in Communist China under Mao, who killed the older generation, assisted in his gun confiscation and the deaths of more than 100 million who did not agree with the politics of communism. They are a loud brood, but just because they are the loudest, doesn’t mean they are the largest and they or their handlers are too cowardly to go door to door with a gun to take any gun from a law-abiding US citizen.
