Obama’s fallen legacy

Obamas fallen legacy

The legacy of Barack Obama should have been sealed on the night of November 4, 2008. Regardless of affiliations, agendas, or policies, a moment was reached in our history where a man who represented a race once enslaved and dehumanized had risen to the mantle of national leadership and been chosen to fill the most powerful position in the world. It was a historical moment that should have been one of reflection, of hope, and of healing.

We should have reflected on what his election meant for Americans, both black and white. For white Americans, it meant that hundreds of years of prejudice and bigotry had been erased to the point that they could accept a man of color as their leader, that at long last Martin Luther King’s dream was bearing glorious fruit. For black Americans, it meant they should never again look down because they could look up and see one of their own achieving the ultimate in American success. For black Americans, it could have been a beacon of hope that they indeed could gain success in a world that once denied them happiness.

There should have been hope for all men, of all creeds, regardless of the petty differences that tear us apart. There should have been hope that racial supremacy was in our past, that the creeds and ideals of American Freedom had, at last, persevered over ancient prejudices. There should have been hope that all children, both black and white, Jew and gentile, could live the American Dream because the final ceiling had been shattered.

And, most important of all, there should have been healing. Our country is desperate for healing. Barack Obama was a leader who had a momentous opportunity to speak as a unifying figure, to teach blacks and whites that we can come together in a shared identity as Americans and communicate that we are not a nation of discordant ethnic cultures, but a nation of a single culture of freedom.

In light of the tensions that have arisen in our country, it is evident that the solidarity of reflection instead became the divisiveness of disdain, the rising hope of inclusiveness became the fallen hope of exclusion, and the healing of a united culture of freedom has been ravaged by the vicious wounds of ethnic struggle.

While the root of our American Crisis is a veritable perfect storm of misunderstandings and reactionary actions, and while no single man can be held fully responsible for the fallen hopes of our country, the legacy that Barack Obama inherited as the first African-American President has been placed in a very precarious situation. How else will history judge a man given the unique opportunity to unite and heal, who after eight years left the country more ethnically tumultuous then when he took the mantle of leadership?

Barack Obama proved to be an unfit bearer of the hopes placed in him. He proved to be an ideologue and a demagogue who set his desires for legacy in progressive agendas that debase and degrade the ability of all men, white and black, to live independently and with dignity. And, worst of all, he showed a lack of leadership needed to promote healing and unity in the face of the tragedies which racked our souls and instead used his station to act and speak in ways calculated to use the calamities to further his ends.

The final travesty for which history will remember Barack Obama will be his willingness to lay the legacy of an election of hope on the altar of his self-serving rhetoric of fear and hopelessness.

10 things to do instead of watching the Democrats debate tonight

10 things to do instead of watching the Democrats debate tonight

In 2016, I watched every debate the Democratic Party put on. Their policies were in a state of flux at the time and I wanted to learn more about that crazy up-and-coming whippersnapper, Senator Bernie Sanders.

This time, there are many reasons I won’t be watching the debate. First, the field is too big for now. I just don’t care enough about what 2/3rds of them have to say because less than 1/3rd actually have at least a minor shot of getting the nomination. The others are fundraising for their next election.

Second, I already know all the answers. Tim Young broke them down:

The third and final reason (there are more, but let’s not get boring) I won’t be watching tonight’s debate is because there are so many better ways to spend my time. Here are 10 things people should be doing that would be time better spent.

  1. Volunteer at a homeless shelter, especially if you live in a Democrat-controlled city like San Francisco, Seattle, or New York.
  2. Eat dinner at Chick-fil-A.
  3. Read the Constitution instead of listening to people who view it as a hindrance to their goals.
  4. Learn how we’re working to stop socialism from rising in America.
  5. Clean your guns. Too many gun owners aren’t doing proper maintenance.
  6. Learn about the growing threat of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  7. Preorder “Unplanned“.
  8. Spend time with family, friends, pets, or anyone you know who could use some encouragement today.
  9. Shop at Wayfair.
  10. Literally anything else.

Spoiler alert: They all hate Trump. They all want to stop America from being divided. They all want you to hate successful Americans. The Democrats’ responses will be variations of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

Progressives’ contradictions make their immigration goals crystal clear

Progressives contradictions make their immigration goals crystal clear

Progressives are pushing what seems to be contradictory narratives on the same subject. The “concentration camp” narrative and all associated stories about poor conditions at migrant centers across the southern border is designed to invoke hatred that can be directed at the President for forcing migrants to live in terrible conditions. The “not a dime” narrative says American taxpayers should not spend anything additional on improving border housing quality and quantity.

Today, many Wayfair employees are walking out in protest because the company is selling beds to a contractor that supplies migrant centers. That’s the contradictory narrative in action, complaining that the kids aren’t comfortable while staying at migrant centers, then boycotting companies supplying the means to make them more comfortable.

Conservatives on Twitter responded:

The reality is this: They want the migrant centers to be so packed, so uncomfortable, and so inhumane that the outcry from America is to just let them go. Here is their narrative in a nutshell:

Give them their asylum hearing papers and let them go. In fact, take them wherever they want to go in America. If they show up for their hearing, so be it. If not, great! They’re immigrants like everyone else now. Give them a driver’s license, social services, free school, free housing, free healthcare, free food, free clothes, and anything else they can’t afford. Soon, we’ll give them voting rights. Because by coming here, they’re now Americans and deserve all of the rights of American citizens… plus plus plus.

If all of this sounds ludicrous, it’s because it is. If it sounds reasonable, you’re a modern-day radical progressive, in which case I welcome you to this site and I hope you read it thoroughly every day until you abandon your destructive ideology.

There is no contradiction in what progressives are promoting. They want all migrants released to the interior without hesitation. No stop at a migrant center. Just give them their papers and allow them to go if they want. If they don’t want to go immediately, take care of them until they do. That’s the current goal for progressives on border security. They want no security at all.

It’s time to stop arguing against progressives using logic. They won’t see it. They set their mind on a goal and will then do anything to achieve that goal. It doesn’t truly matter to them if migrants die in the process. In fact, it makes their case faster; the more deaths that happen at the border or in migrant centers, the easier it becomes for them to push their narrative.

Progressives don’t want beds for the migrants. They don’t want them to be held at all. We need to stop scratching our heads at their apparent contradiction and understand what progressives really want.

The only 6 Democrats running that can think for themselves

The only 6 Democrats running that can think for themselves

Socialism is often a hive mind, as we see every Leftist outlet have the same take on a story, same arguments for a position, and the overall same mission. Conformity is the end goal; to Leftist-Socialism we will conform, if they have their way. In conformity, deviant thinking is often punished, as we saw how Joe Biden was forced to flip-flop on the meaningless Hyde Amendment and multiple feminists have been cast out for not accepting transgenderism.

The Left will eat their own for stepping out of line. But even within the confines of the conformity, there are notable distinctions between Democrats who can think for themselves and Democrats who cannot. The Joe Biden example with the Hyde Amendment shows he doesn’t have an original thought as it pertains to policy. Likewise Kamala Harris insisting on having that conversation indicates the same. Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand are the same exact person. So let’s take inventory of the original thinkers.

Bernie Sanders

This is probably the most obvious among the field of 24. Bernie Sanders was a socialist before it was cool, like back when the Soviet Union was collapsing. This guy loves communism, breadlines, and living off the government. And it’s doubtful anyone has pressured him into becoming more zealous, as opposed to the environment being safer to expose himself.

Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is the brains of the socialist movement. She has come out with more policy proposals than any other Democrat candidate, it seems. When it comes to policy, she’s a wonk, kept warm in her Massachusetts log cabin by the burning of the US Constitution, coming up with ideas on how to implement her vision. From the unconstitutional wealth tax to Medicare (Medicaid) for all, she’s a thought leader.

Tulsi Gabbard

The only thing likable about Gabbard is her foreign policy stances, only to isolationist Libertarians. Otherwise she is a complete communist. Still, her differentiating on foreign policy is enough of a deviance from the hive mind to credit her on this list.

Marianne Williamson

She was the thought leader for the New Age cult back in the 1990’s. Since then she has been an activist on multiple fronts. Oprah’s spiritual advisor was a socialist before it was cool, dating back at least to her failed Congressional run in 2014.

Tim Ryan

Nothing demonstrates divergent behavior in the Democrat ranks quite like taking on Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House.

Andrew Yang

Andrew Yang does not fit in with the candidates at all. He has a grasp of economics and technology that far exceeds the field.

Democrat Presidential Primary Bracket

Are the candidates capable of thinking for themselves in a better position to win the nomination. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are among the top contenders, but the field is vast and socialist are legion. Fill out your bracket here.
