America’s Stockholm Syndrome
There is a silence in the air as we all go about our lives in the morning of 9/11.
We are reflective, we mourn the ones we’ve lost, we ponder on how our perception of the world changed in one day, and we share our stories of what we were doing that tragic morning.
Regardless if you believe that 9/11/2001 was an act of terrorism with or without all the theories regarding our own government involvement, it was still a massacre planned and executed by a radical mentality that seeks submission from those who do not think as they do.
One would think that after 2001 American Citizens would be even more alert to the possibility of developing radicalism among the followers of Islam, but we’ve seen quite the opposite take place.
One would also think, that those who believe that our government either aided or covered up important information, would be less supportive of the swamp creatures who did it.
How did we go from complete shock in the morning of 9/11/2001 to defending the assailants 11 years later when Benghazi took the lives of an Ambassador and another three brave US Citizens?
I remember watching the news during the Benghazi attack and having no doubt that we were witnessing a well-planned and very intentional attack on US citizens on the 11th anniversary of the largest terrorist attack this Nation has ever experienced. Yet, many were perfectly ok with the clearly false narrative that the attack was spontaneous and the result of outrage from a YouTube video.
Americans have gone out of their way to show they are not bigots!
Since 9/11/2001 we have …
Tripled the amount of refugees from Islamic countries into the Country, had another 8 terrorist attacks in US soil (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/01/america-since-911-terrorist-attacks-linked-to-the-war-on-terror) Lost the first Ambassador in 3 decades due to terrorism. We’ve allowed the government to infringe on our 4th Amendment rights by establishing the Patriot Act, which has done nothing to prevent the 8 attacks on US soil since implemented. We’ve allowed the government to create and give too much power to the TSA, which again, has not arrested even one terrorist since its creation but makes our lives hell at airports.
Government officials clearly lying about Benghazi were given a pass, radical Islamic groups have been ignored. Recently, a judge even dismissed all charges against islamists who killed a child in a ritual and enslaved 11 others … no protests about those injustices, but plenty of protests to keep late-term abortion rights.
All sense of reason and logic have been completely rejected.
Stockholm syndrome maybe?
Stockholm syndrome, psychological response wherein a captive begins to identify closely with his or her captors, as well as with their agenda and demands.
But you would say… Americans are not captive? I wouldn’t be so sure about that.
Under the definition of Stockholm syndrome, Encyclopedia Britannica delivers the following:
“Psychologists who have studied the syndrome believe that the bond is initially created when a captor threatens a captive’s life, deliberates, and then chooses not to kill the captive. The captive’s relief at the removal of the death threat is transposed into feelings of gratitude toward the captor for giving him or her life. As the Stockholm bank robbery incident proves, it takes only a few days for this bond to cement, proving that, early on, the victim’s desire to survive trumps the urge to hate the person who created the situation.
The survival instinct is at the heart of the Stockholm syndrome. Victims live in enforced dependence and interpret rare or small acts of kindness in the midst of horrible conditions as good treatment. They often become hypervigilant to the needs and demands of their captors, making psychological links between the captors’ happiness and their own. Indeed, the syndrome is marked not only by a positive bond between captive and captor but also by a negative attitude on behalf of the captive toward authorities who threaten the captor-captive relationship. The negative attitude is especially powerful when the hostage is of no use to the captors except as leverage against a third party, as has often been the case with political hostages.”
Please read the text above as many times as necessary until you understand the connection to the dysfunctional relationship Americans have developed with its politicians.
How else can you explain not the mere acceptance but border line adulation half of the population exhibits towards a culture that is diametrically opposed to ours?
In 2015 and NY city judge was sworn in using the Quran instead of the Constitution, not one cared that her loyalty was to sharia and not the highest law of the country, and that the two literally do not go along.
Today, we have 50 out of almost 100 Muslims who made it through the primaries, running for office in the upcoming elections. That’s a very odd acceptance of a culture who tried to kill you 17 years ago.
And who are seen as the bad guys? The ones pointing this insanity out like Benghazi survivor Kris Paronto, or former Muslim and anti sharia activist Anni Aynaz Cyrus.
No, we should not be judgmental, and no we should not generalize an entire group of people, balance and reason is important, both lacking these days though.
In the effort to not generalize Americans are over compensating and giving up their culture in the process. We might end up with mayors like Sadiq Khan from London all over America in the next 2 election cycles because half the population suffers from Stockholm syndrome and the other half won’t even bother to get out and vote.
I know this is a very daring thought, but you can both accept other cultures and preserve yours!
When we say Never Forget, mean it!
Jihad could never win a real hand to hand battle inside the US, but they are winning a very patient and controlled battle by changing the political landscape one city at the time while monopolizing on the very convenient guilt half the nation seems to feel towards their captors.
09/11/2001 – 09/11/2012
Fight for them, fight for their memory, fight for our Constitution, fight for our children.
NEVER FORGET and DON’T LET IT BE FORGOTTEN
Happy Birthday America!
When I came to America 32 years ago a few things caught my attention….
The streets were clean and well paved
There was a sense of order
There weren’t any beggars on the street corners
People didn’t lock their doors during the day or locked their cars
Americans could criticize anyone and anything freely
Americans could open a small business and make a decent living
Cops were respected
Each State was different with different laws that served its population
Voting wasn’t mandatory but Americans took it serious
Americans were proud, a good proud!
I was travelling by bus from St. Louis, MO to Peoria, IL listening to my walkman (you can laugh now!) in total awe with the beautiful road, and as we crossed the Mississippi River I saw a group of bikers, there were twenty or so, they all had jackets with the American Flag on it and the leader had a big Flag flying from his bike….it gave me chills!
I cried, I was in America! The land of the Free!
I knew then I wanted to be part of it, I wanted to be Free also.
It wasn’t the kind of freedom that removes physical chains, it was freedom of the soul.
The visa process was a lengthy and expensive one, but to me it was so worthy! I was glad that this wonderful Country was so demanding and scrutinized its immigrants, after all, the reason it was so wonderful was because of its citizenry and the pride they carry in their hearts, the love they had for this land.
Becoming a US Citizen in those days was a privilege, one that I was very grateful for.
To all of you that were blessed with being born in this amazing Country….
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being selective about who you are willing to accept into your family, that’s called self preservation.
Read the beginning of this post again and ask yourself why have things changed so much in 30 years.
As we celebrate America’s 242nd Birthday let’s remember that this Nation was made by immigrants who embraced it, loved it, fought for it, and died for it….and not by immigrants who refused to assimilate.
I wish all of you could feel what I felt that day when I crossed the Mississippi River….
“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people” ~ Ronald Reagan.
Happy Birthday America! And thank you for having me.
The myth of “As long as we have our guns”
Three months ago myself and a couple of friends started a 501C-4 organization called Freedom Rights with the sole purpose to bring patriotic Americans together to protect what protects us, the United States Constitution.
It has been my personal experience as someone who was born in a foreign country, that our freedoms are taken away in small doses, small enough to still give us a sense that we have some control over our future. And seeing how the same pattern was present in my beloved adopted country, I felt it was necessary to start doing something before it was too late.
What I’m about to write will upset some of my friends, and I offer no apology for it, because it’s the truth.
Unfortunately, even some of the most patriotic and freedom loving Americans, have been brainwashed into believing that as long as they have their guns they can take back what has already been stolen. There is this almost utopic idea that some day they will know that it is finally time to fight, but not yet. I’ve always wondered what makes people so complacent, and how bad things need to get before they understand that there is in fact a point where it’s literally too late. Most Americans have this idea that one day they will come for their guns and they will fight back, that’s the moment when they will finally do something, really? Why wait until we come to the point of having to shed blood to defend what is rightfully ours? Why not demand that elected officials live up to their oath of office and respect the Constitution? Why not push back every single time legislation is passed or about to be passed that will infringe on our rights?
Globalists work day and night to change this country, they are organized and persistent. Yes, they are rude, loud, and have the news media on their side. How do Constitution loving Americans respond to that? Typically by doing absolutely nothing!
I’ve heard everything from “we all have jobs”, to “we are better than that”, to “let’s make sure we vote the next election”. All of which sounds very honorable, but is it? Or is it pure complacency and laziness? Are the patriots of today just little kids that play pretend in their little worlds, and in their pretend world they are Super Man, brave and strong, but when they hear mom’s voice they quickly go back to being Jimmy, the 6 y/o boy scared he might be late for dinner?
Yes, there are those who would fight back, and there are some who are willing to protest and stand for their rights … not enough though, not enough. We are a whisper in the wind, while the globalists are a pack of howling wolves.
We have come to the point where speaking our mind, like I do often on my videos, is considered an act of bravery! How pathetic is that?
Do you know what comes next? More suppression, more corrupt politicians, more laws infringing on your rights, more gun legislation, and if the last decades are any indication of how people will react, chances are we will do absolutely nothing other than complain as usual.
To illustrate how far-fetched the idea that patriots will actually take the streets screaming “Molon Labe” or “From my cold dead hands” is, let’s go over gun legislation passed during the last few decades:
- 1934 – National Firearms Act: banned fully automatic weapons, short-barreled shot guns, taxed manufacturer and gun owners, required paperwork subject to Treasury Dept Approval. No one fought back
- 1938 – Federal Firearms Act: Manufacturers were required to obtain a license and keep a record of every person they sold a weapon to. No one fought back
- 1968 – Gun Control Act: further restricted rifles and shot-gun sales, prohibited mail order sales, restricted users. No one fought back
- 1972 – ATF was created to further enforce gun control. No one fought back
- 1990 – Crime Control Act: that’s the one that made schools gun free zones. No one fought back
- 1994 – Brady Handgun Violence Act: commonly known as the “assault weapon ban” this bill banned the manufacture, possession, and importation of new semiautomatic assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition feeding devices (or magazines) for civilian use. No one fought back.
We have allowed ourselves to be regulated in every way possible, from what we can say at work, to how much influence we have in our children’s school curriculum, and even what we post on social media. We now need a permit to peaceably assemble at a public park (violation of the 1st Amendment), permit to hunt and fish, we pay exorbitant property taxes so our homes are never really ours, and the list goes on. We are far from free!
And we did nothing!
But don’t worry, they don’t want a revolution, they will just keep on taking our rights away in small doses because they’ve been studying us and they know it works. And while they are doing that, they are also teaching the new generations about the beauty of globalism. They are patient, and persistent.
They will eventually pass legislation banning guns all together, that’s the natural path, it has happened in Europe and South America. Trump will not be there forever, and depending on who wins the next election, we will be closer than most people think to losing all of our rights. And please, don’t fool yourself, you will do nothing. The same way that you’ve done nothing till this point, and they know it.
So, next time you see anarchists making noise and pushing for laws that infringe on your rights and say … “I have to work” “I’m better than them” or “I’ll make sure to vote”, go straight to the mirror and say that to yourself!
Better yet, walk up to your child, or grandchild and say those words.
And then explain to them why they will live under a tyrannical government because you are so much better than the anarchists, so you chose to do nothing.
Einstein said it best … “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”.
It is time to do more than just vote.
If you really care about the migrant children, deal with these truths!
Hey Schumer! Remember when you caused a government shut down because you wanted to protect DACA? Remember that President Trump handed you a bill granting amnesty to 1.8 million DACA recipients and you rejected it because you didn’t want to fund the border wall?
So please spare me your fake outrage 6 months later regarding families being separated at the border!
Right after the government shut down, Democrats, the media, and the never Trump Republicans went completely silent regarding DACA. We have not heard a peep out of them! What happened to them and why all of a sudden no one is shedding tears for their horrible fate of being illegal thanks to their parents lack of judgment, the same lack of judgment that is responsible for the new fake outrage at the border regarding families being separated?
Anyone still buying into the 24 hour news cycles with dramatic coverage of ordinary daily government business either has an extremely short memory, or lack the ability of independent thinking.
It’s all about politics and keeping people angry and divided, period.
If Democrats cared about DACA they would have taken the amnesty for 1.8 million recipients and allowed a border wall to be built so we are not in the same situation again in 10 years. If Republicans cared about building a wall and improving security at the border they would come together instead of fighting among themselves and pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
But here’s the ugly truth…
The drug cartels have a 29 billion dollars a year business in the US thanks to a porous border, and this business is just going to grow as more and more people become addicted to meth and heroin. If big pharma has lobbyists, don’t you think the cartels do too? Look at skid row in California, all those people living on the streets in tents are drug addicts, and they are there because we have an unstoppable flow of drugs into this country.
Another border issue is sex traffickers. As many as 80% of the minors coming into the US are either teenagers coming alone or smaller kids being brought in by a kidnapper to be sold to pedophile and prostitution rings. Teenage girls as young as 13 are brought in to “service” migrant camps, where the pimps will charge $35 for every 15 min spent with the girl and force them to be with 50-60 men a day. And the male teenagers are often gang members coming in as mules for the drug cartels.
If you take the time to research, then you understand why the separation is actually needed! What do you know? Bill Clinton actually signed a law that was meant to protect these children and now his own party think it’s cruel just because Trump is using it to solve a problem that has put thousands of minors in danger.
Also, keep in mind that these people are coming in without any documentation whatsoever, how do you know that this particular 3 year old belongs to the woman holding him? Authorities have to do a lot of work to find out if this relationship is legitimate, or if there is a mother back in Guatemala whose child was kidnapped to be sold in the US to a pedophile.
Something else that reporters and politicians conveniently forget to mention, are the billions of dollars spent by the U.S. government every year in financial aid to countries like Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, with the sole purpose of helping those governments with health, education and security, so their citizens have a better life. Why are we giving them all this money and then taking their citizens in, along with all the drug trafficking? This is your money, your tax dollars, completely mishandled.
Last, but not least, let’s not forget that there are 10 American Consulates spread all over Mexico and these migrants claiming asylum could have stopped at any of the Consulates at the southern part of Mexico, and apply for asylum before taking the long and dangerous trip to cross the border illegally. So why didn’t they? Could it be that they knew they would be screened there and most likely not be able to enter the US with a child that didn’t belong to them?
In order to maintain independent thinking, one must learn to question everything or you are doomed to become a tool in the hands of politicians who have mastered the art of pulling on your heart strings to guarantee another 4 years in office.
At the end, the best thing our government can do is to build a wall and protect the border so these disgusting people who make a living from drug trafficking, or selling children for sex, will no longer have a market to profit from.
But next week Democrats, the media and the rhinos will be outraged by something else, there will be another “big story” to keep you fighting with each other and the voting population will be divided so no one notices the corruption happening behind closed doors… and they will forget about the children the same way they forgot about DACA. And unfortunately, so will you.
The Left’s misplaced outrage
Obama met with Cuban dictator Castro and handed him everything he wanted, nothing from that meeting promoted world peace or proved beneficial to the US.
It was a one-sided deal that still left the Cuban people starving and desperate to leave the island.
Cuba isn’t a threat to anyone other than their own people, and Cubans got zero out of the infamous visit where Obama and his administration posed proudly in front of a mural with the image of murderous Che Guevara.
But the press loved it!
They applauded and praised him for accomplishing absolutely nothing! And completely ignored the millions of Cubans living in the US who were outraged by the visit and concessions made by Obama to Castro.
No one seemed bothered by the rights of the Cuban people, the misery they live in, or the fact that still today Cubans cannot say what they think without facing prison. And that the meeting between Obama and Castro was nothing but a well orchestrated show to then allow some interest groups to benefit financially from trading with Cuba … a Country whose government will take all those profits and do nothing for its people.
So, here we are in 2018, and the Trump administration managed to organize a meeting with North Korea’s dictator, making Trump the first American President to ever meet with a North Korean leader. Yes, we all know that the people of North Korea are probably even more oppressed than the Cubans, so clearly, peace between North Korea and the rest of the World will greatly improve their lives. Maybe not as much as we would like to, but it is the first step.
This meeting had one single purpose that we all know of: the denuclearization of North Korea. Which has an enormous impact in the entire world, and all the media can do is call Trump a dictator because he met with a dictator?
Seriously? A ten year old could come up with a better insult!
This takes the need to bash someone to an entire new level!
That level where hypocrisy and lack of ethics is so blatant that you have to wonder who in the world is that small-minded to listen to this crap and buy it!
The fact that they always find something negative to say doesn’t bother or surprise me, what keeps surprising me is people’s inability to think for themselves and at some point say… wait a minute, this is in the realm of absurdity now, and walk away from the systematic brainwashing.
In some people’s twisted and very cluttered minds, Trump will go down in the liberal history books as the first dictator to want citizens to remain armed and a capitalist economy.
In a way that gives liberals at least one win, Trump really sucks at something, he sucks at being a real dictator!
The bizarre alliance between progressives and Islam
One of the most bizarre alliances to surface during the last few years has been the one between Islam and progressives.
There is absolutely nothing less progressive than Islam! How and why these two polar opposite ideologies have become political buddies is a subject that no one is willing to talk about. Known liberal Bill Maher has voiced his concerned, which has caused his own base to label him an Islamophobe.
Mind manipulation and propaganda are real!
Nothing proves it better than this bizarre alliance.
The Washington Post released an article this week, proudly introducing over 90 Muslims running for office this election season as Democrats with huge support from liberal voters. These are the same voters who support abortion, feminism, gay rights, and most of all, separation between Church and State.
Yet, they are completely on board with electing someone who doesn’t personally believe in any of the above just to prove that they are willing to embrace multiculturalism and pat themselves on the back for their tolerance.
So let’s try to connect the dots and find the foundation of this strange alliance that makes sense to no one who is still able to think independently.
Sharia Law is the political arm of Islam, it governs your every move in life. From what kind of loan you get to buy a house to your rights as a gay person or a woman, both of which are seen with less regard than we in this Country have for our pets.
In Islam there is no separation between Church and State, the Church is the State. An oppressive and intrusive one that represents what the translation of Islam means: Submit.
The very essence of Sharia Law is in direct opposition of the Bill of Rights, one cannot support both.
So, after thinking about this strange union between progressives and “regressives” I’ve realized that they key word to understand it was in the very translation of the word Islam: SUBMIT.
It’s not a secret that Democrats today are globalists, they bow to the gods of a one world community without borders and a centralized government, reason why anything American is so repulsive to them, too nationalistic and contrary to the globalist agenda. One cannot love his roots and traditions and at the same time accept globalization, patriotism must be eliminated for that to happen. Submission needs to exist for that to happen!
As Islam spreads all over the world and governments force their citizens into submitting to a new way of life where one has to forgo their freedom of speech as to not offend their new residents (the followers of Islam) and prove their ability to coexist with a culture which is opposite to their core beliefs; people are being slowly trained to give in to an oppressive culture.
Think about it, how is Islam any different from living under communism?
Both are oppressive, both decide your life for you, both decide your money for you, both will force you into submission at gun point if necessary. But Islam has the advantage of being covered by the mantle of religion, which most developed countries have laws to protect.
They are using a freedom to take away your freedom.
What we are seeing here is the most brilliant strategy every created to slowly bring the entire world into the submission of one centralized government without having to fight a huge war.
By using multiculturalism and freedom of religion, progressives have convinced their base to embrace the exact opposite of what they preach, because the end result is exactly the same submission needed for communism to be implemented, and they are accomplishing that in one stroke worldwide by supporting Islam. Brilliant!
The followers of Islam and supporters of sharia law on the other hand, are being given the golden opportunity to enter western civilizations who would never accept their way of living, by those who in theory would be their strongest opponents, and to them that is a victory in itself, so they have no problem running for office as a Democrat as long as they achieve their ultimate goal….impose their views on everyone else. They are being used on a global scale the same way Lenin used aristocrats and artists to gain complete control during the Russian revolution.
It is still baffling to me how so many self-proclaimed progressives can’t see the sheer paradox in supporting a political candidate that follows sharia law, while also marching on the streets for gay rights and feminism. I thank God every day for the ability to think through the fog created by corrupt politicians and the globalists’ fourth branch of government: the media.
A lot of conservatives believe that the reason Islam is taking over is because governments are caving in to their demmands. Believe me, they have complete control of this situation! They just want Islam to do the dirty work of silencing people and forcing them to comply, a little bit at the time.
They are strategically using this ideology to gain power because the end result is the same: Submission.
Paired with the constant attacks on all forms of free speech, fueling racism, and policies that infringe on every right once guaranteed as sacred by our Constitution, it will not be long before we find ourselves in a completely different society void of all the freedoms we once guarded so vigilantly.
It has never been as important to be involved in the political process as it is today, the days when just getting out to vote was enough are over! We need to be involved in our communities and local politics as well as in the Federal level like never before, or our children and grandchildren will, without a question, be forced to submit.
Conservatives typically believe that their job is done by voting, but while we vote every four years, the globalists are working every single day, making gradual but significant changes, that go unaffected by our vote.
Just as careless, is to use our keyboards to rant about our frustrations as therapy, fooling ourselves that by doing so we are doing our part to secure our freedoms.
This is a time for action, the higher ground is sinking and we need to move to the battlefield.
A 21st Century problem in need of a 20th Century solution
Immigration Reform Tantrum
Any time “daddy Trump” tries to remove candy from the spoiled children used to having all they want in Washington, they throw a tantrum and cry racism!
A couple of weeks ago, the President generously offered a path to citizenship to 1.8 million people who were brought here as children, the offer was refused by democrats because part of the deal was funding for the border wall and the end of unlimited chain migration.
We all know why some people don’t want border security, but why the outcry over limiting chain migration, the refugee program and the diversity visa?
As usual, follow the money!
I’ve talked about VOLAGS before. VOLAGS are Voluntary Agencies, charities that receive government funding for bringing and taking care of refugees. And it is a profitable business, so profitable that they even have lobbyists!
All Volag expenses and overhead in the Washington, DC HQ are paid by the U.S. government.
The Volag pockets 25% of every transportation loan it collects from refugees it “sponsors”. Yep, you’ve read this right, even the transportation from their country of origin is paid by our government as a loan, which most never pay back.
The Volag gets up to $2,200 for each refugee by participating in a U.S. DHHS program known as Matching Grant. To get the $2,200, the Volag needs to only show it spent $200 and gave away $800 worth of donated clothes, furniture or cars.
And they get $1,850 per refugee per month (including children) from the State Department.
Now, start adding this up… we take in an average of 112,000 refugees a year, each refugee brings at least 3 relatives after being here, and we give 50,000 diversity visas away each year.
UN personnel often sell access to the program and once here, refugees make false claims of family relationship in order to facilitate wider immigration…. and that’s where the issue with chain migration comes from. These refugees have been bringing relatives that they’ve never seen in their lives, and friends falsely claimed as relatives and every single one costs tax payers an average of $60,000 a year for 5 years, and if after the 5 years they are still unemployable we just keep taking care of their needs. This program desperately needs changing! It’s costing us a fortune and bringing in people who we cannot properly vet.
Democrats and some Republicans found themselves in a tough spot when asked to give up chain migration for amnesty for 1.8 million DACA recipients, which lobbyist should they satisfy? The ones from the big companies who benefit from cheap labor, or the charities who benefit from chain migration connected with the refugee program?
Due to lack of a better way to buy time to figure out how to attend to the needs of different interest groups, while Trump is not negotiable on the border wall, they’ve decided to throw DACA recipients under the bus (at least for now) so they could have enough time to call the entire immigration reform package racist and convince the public that Trump only wants white people to immigrate to the U.S.
And since most democrat voters will never take the time to research the plan presented by the White House, they will never know that the plan was not even close to being white supremacist as I hear them repeating like mindless parrots.
The plan allows for chain migration to continue until the backlog is exhausted, that will probably take another 6-8 years. Probably because all the leeches (VOLAGS) living off this program need some time to find another job. It also maintains the same number of immigrants allowed to come to the U.S. from Mexico, India, China, Dominican Republic, and even s*hole Haiti. And it doesn’t reduce the total number of 1.2 million green cards issued every year.
The border wall and more funding for border security is still the one major change proposed by the President, one which is so important to him that he was willing to allow 1.8 million illegals to gain a clear path to citizenship. But the same democrats who voted YES for a border wall in 2006, now have received a personal revelation that a wall is definitely racist! And just in case you haven’t heard it today: If you want a border wall, the visa lottery gone, end of chain migration, or merit based immigration… regardless of the color of your skin or heritage – You are definitely a white supremacist and a racist!
I’m glad we got that clear
SOTU – The Duke Edition
If you’ve interpreted the SOTU as anything but Patriotic, you’re too young to remember the America I moved to 30 years ago, have not assimilated as an immigrant, or have been successfully programmed by the global elite to mistake patriotism for a form of toxic nationalism.
Trump’s address brought me back to my first years as an immigrant in this Country, when John Wayne was a hero for his love of everything that created these United States of America.
His speech was 100% about America, its roots, its spirit, its strength. And 100% about the kind of people who have made this a great Country.
I remember visiting Brazil, and people would ask me why was The U.S. so ahead of a country that was about the same age, population and geographic size. That was an easy answer…
Americans were patriots, they loved this country and its history. They worked to preserve it. They even came across as arrogant to some other cultures, and they didn’t care. It was never about being arrogant, it was about being proud of what they had built. I understood that, and I admired it.
Thus, my desire to become an American. I wanted to be part of a people who had the strength to fight for what they believed, and so I did.
As the global elite gained control of some of our politicians and our school system, patriotism has become frowned upon, it gained a new name – nationalism.
So, when Trump, in typical John Wayne style, offered no apologies for his love for America and its spirit; and delivered a speech presenting the work done during his first year, which has been solely dedicated to bringing back the economic strength that we once had. The global elite, represented by politicians who oppose him, could not cheer for America, or Americans.
They did not cheer for the sacrifices made by the Citizens celebrated last night. The young boy who placed flags at veterans graves, the ICE agent who rid the country of countless gang members, the firefighter who saved lives in California, not even the parents who tragically lost their daughters at the hands of MS13 gang members. They did not cheer for the mention of the Flag or the Anthem, one even left the room when the crowd started chanting USA. They did not applaud the lowest unemployment in decades among Black Americans, or record job growth. They sat there, bothered by any sign of American exeptionalism.
You see…. if they did cheer, they would be turning their backs on the global elites whom they’ve been working so hard for to convince us that America is not exceptional, that it is not our spirit of self-reliance that brought us here, but our greed and selfishness.
Their undeniable hate for the President is simply because one man was able to rekindle the spirit of patriotism they’ve worked so hard to diminish and got so close to eliminating.
America will keep standing as a beacon of freedom for as long as there are Patriots!
Let us never forget that, and let us teach our children so they will not forget.
When I listened to the rebuttal speech by a pale red-headed trust fund Kennedy desperately trying to channel former President Obama by using his famous words… “This is not who we are” , in my mind I responded: You have no clue who we are!
We are welders, truck drivers, house wives, small business owners, miners, farmers, college graduates, accountants, salespeople, construction workers, computer engineers…. we are fighters, not beggars. We are Americans!
And last night, through President Trump’s first State of the Union address …
We were all John Wayne.
