POLITICAL SHIFT: HOW THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY COULD REIGN SUPREME ACROSS AMERICA

Image result for DEMOCRATS

“The pendulum is starting to swing.”


Since the mayoral and other council races back in November of this year, party lines have already began to show a sign of turning back blue. Some say that people are already getting fed up with the current President Donald J. Trump, and others have stated that these are places can typically swing in either direction: Democrat of Republican. Now, as it comes to no surprise places in Florida and Texas has still kept their political views going strong for the Republican party. But, when you look at the political maps across the country, you can’t help but notice that the pendulum is swinging back in the opposite direction. And what is this due to in America? Could it be that Trump supporters are getting tired of him already, or does it have to do with new voters.

There were three of age at the time Trump was elected President last year who are now 18 years old. Which may very well be the very few voters. Or, there could be the population of people that did not get involved in the general presidential election, who came out to vote. Because remember, in this past election of Donald Trump, nearly half the country didn’t vote for a president. These non-voters could now be getting involved because of their lack of initiative in the national election. And lastly, there are the people who voted Republican, who are now saying they made the wrong decision, and now want to flip sides.

Because if you observe the election percentages, you have Democrats that have won by major percentages. And yes, if you look at the major metropolitan cities, you tend to see a more Democratic win, but these are wins even in small cities and towns. So what has happened that has caused so many Republicans to lose their position in the party? Could it really be that since Trump was elected, he has caused all of the mistrust in the party? This is only his first year in office, and already, confidence could begin to be lost in a party. And with a new generation coming into the voting pool for the year 2020, the Republicans better start seeking out young people and fast. Why, well the millennials and the newly introduced Generation Z will be the majority. Two generations that have become turned off by the Conservatives on the right.

And in the end, that’s the biggest issue, is that a young generation is being shaped by a party. But not just one generation, two back-to-back generations. All the while, being turned off by the other. So if the Republicans don’t start to find ways of reaching out to young voters, then you’ll start to see a close to impossible win by Conservatives in any election whether it be city, state, or national. Because what we have is an aging declining older generation and a growing younger generation shifting to the left.

A NATION IN LIMBO: HOW SATISFIED ARE YOU WITH THE PRESIDENCY IN AMERICA SO FAR

Image result for donald trump president

“Only 15% into the term, yet so many problems.”


Since the presidential inauguration of Donald J. Trump as our Commander in Chief, there has been constant controversy around his presidency. From the comments he’s made that were deemed insensitive, to the link between him and Russia in an alleged tampering with the election. Now, there is even more controversy, this time circling the appointment of the new Communications Image result for trump inaugurationDirector Anthony Scaramucci. The former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently stepped down amidst the bringing in of Scaramucci. But it hasn’t been a full two weeks and Scaramucci has already stepped down already himself. The first story came out regarding his filing for divorce, then him stepping down. So now my question is, what will happen next in this administration?

While all this controversy is going on, we still have a nation with high unemployment, and people are becoming frustrated. Yet if Trump can’t shake the Russian controversy, fix the healthcare bill, nor maintain the travel ban, how will he fix employment. He made a statement regarding employment that he would levy tax on corporations shipping jobs overseas of 35% if they weren’t bent on Image result for american unemploymentreturning those jobs home. But with the world moving more in an automated direction, there is no purpose to preserve the industrialization of America. And I don’t know why the United States is stuck on factories anyways. This isn’t the 1900’s, we are in a more tech savvy environment. We need more engineers, managers, operational people, information driven people, and marketers.

But the American population, especially people in select regions don’t want to hear any of it. And a lot of these places for years heavily depended on the factories for a living. Only problem is that there are cheaper methods of building in our world today. And in order for America to stay competitive in the market, we can’t Image result for american factoriesgo back. Still, Trump supporters would say that this is just more liberal bull. That America can bring jobs back. But anyone that knows even a basic understanding
of the market knows this is false. For example, the priceless metals in our cell phone is in countries not indigenous to America. So if America bring factories here making cell phones, then labor drives prices up. Two things would happen: 1) Americans would have to spend more for items that they already struggle paying for now; 2) other countries can outbid America for raw materials.

So what do you do when China wants to make a cell phone. They charge few dollars and hour for labor. Since they do so, they can charges pennies and still Related imagemake a profit to stay in business. It takes $30, $40, and even $50 per hour to raise a family. Can you imagine how much a company wold have to charge for cell phone to recoup what’s lost for American made products just because of labor. So now you’re talking an iPhone made in America would skyrocket. Trust and believe people are buying the Chinese bought product. Because a large part comes down to labor; labor is just cheaper outside of America. Meaning America will have to change from an industrialized to an informational country. We have always been ahead of the curve for so long, and going backward won’t help.

In the end, Trump has made some pretty serious promises. But the biggest is not the healthcare, nor is it the borders. Trying to force company’s hands over jobs is going to be impossible. Because if the government won’t listen to him on the travel ban, then he’s not getting through with the 35% tax on companies. So now it’s a waiting game. People’s fingers are crossed, hoping for something, anything to happen.

THE KINGDOM IS FALLING: HOW AMERICA COULD BECOME NAZI GERMANY

Image result for american congress

“If politicians don’t stand by their word, someone else will.”


We promise to build schools, create jobs, fix the healthcare problems, stop crime, and keep our borders safe. These are the same old words spoken from the mouths of politicians every election cycle. They stand in front of the podium, make promises that will never be delivered. They collect our tax dollars, then tell us to give back to our communities. Then they get elected and you never see them again. This has become all too common, but no matter how much they lie, we continue to follow them. We run out and cast our vote, then wait for things to happen. But nothing of the like transpires. They sit in their comfortable positions and retain the job until the next person comes along.

Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but this madness has to make you stop and think to yourself, “Why vote?” But is there something that could eventually take hold from all of these promises that are never delivered. What about the leadership of a person who is far more sinister than anyRelated image other leader we’ve had past of present. Everyone is going crazy over the presidential election of Donald J. Trump, but is he the real problem. In my opinion, he’s not the real threat. The real threat is the guy who may pop up next. People are getting more and more desperate. Could we see another dictator, this time rising into power in America?

Now it sounds crazy, but when people are desperate they make some pretty crass decisions. Trump was that guy people voted for out desperation. You might ask yourself, why would a country vote a man with no political experience into the White House? Because America for the longest was a leader in manufacturing. We produced automobiles that were the backbone of a nation, as well as coal and other mined minerals. But in this modern era, there is no room for this old school method of growing a nation. We are more in an automated global economy. But what happens to all those people who depended on these industrialized jobs?

I’ll tell you what happens to these people, they lose out. They don’t know how to work a computer, or build anything that is of use in this new time period. So what now, entire regions of the country, mainly the Midwest, depended on these jobs. So here is where Trump steps into the equation. He

says bring back manufacturing jobs from China, and everyone cheers. Yet they don’t understand the global economy. And if they did, they would know that this is impossible. So what happens if he can’t bring those jobs back to the country? And now you have even more desperation from people.

You would think people would rush to learn and understand the new methods. But they are so set in their ways, it’s hard to learn anything new. So what do they do, sit and wait. Hoping something will change, but it won’t. If the wrong person is able to speak, almost in a Hitler esque manner to the people, he could rise into power. Because people are starting to get that desperate, that even a fascist dictator could be leader as long as he stood by his word. And you never want people electing this type of person, just because he’s honest in speech, yet hateful in intentions.

And unlike the continent of Europe, where America and other allied forces intervened. Who would intervene into our crisis? It sounds crazy, but we also never thought Trump would be the leader of the country either. So watching him grace the stage proves people’s desperation. He in my opinionImage result for american divide is not a fascist by any stretch of the imagination. But the idea people would elect him out of desperation leads me to believe we are heading in that direction. And in the end, that’s my discomfort. We like to say oh well, people have to adjust to the new changes in America. But if they can’t and stand behind someone not in the nation’s best interest, we may all suffer.

DRAINING THE REAL SWAMPS: HOW RADICALS COULD TAKE HOLD IN AMERICA

Related image

“Potential for something sinister is brewing.”


Since President Donald J. Trump was elected in the White House back in November of 2016, there has been a sharp rise in radical views. The feeling has been that he has sparked something in these groups to make them behave a certain way. Could there be some validity to the argument because he (Trump) has expressed disdain with the same people that masses have been angry with as well. Or, could the anger be over something different than the racial viewpoints coming from the news. Could it be that the feelings are coming from a place where we should be focusing our attention, instead of on the president’s language? I have a theory into the rising tension in the United States.

Yesterday was the shooting of a Republican Congressman Steve Scalise. He is currently in critical condition in a hospital, along with a few others that were assisting him as well. The shooting was targeted at Scalise because of his political affiliation. But what would prompt someone to shoot a politician in this country simply because they are of another political Related imageaffiliation? I think one of the connections is because of the disdain for leaders in this country. People have constantly expressed their anger toward politicians for not performing their duties in the manner in which they promised. People who feel they are doing their part, yet every four years, you only see politicians actively working when they are running for re-election. But, is that the only reason as to why this country is growing in radicalization; no.

Another reason tensions have been flaring up is the lose of jobs in this country. With manufacturing work being sent overseas and people becoming more and more desperate, I’m surprised there aren’t more of architecture, building, emptythese incidents like Scalise. It’s the reason why our leaders not only should assure the country that everything is going to be fine, but work to make everything fine. Because that desperation from people could easily flip into something much more sinister. You might start seeing the election of leaders who embody men of hate from the past. Do I see a Nazi regime taking hold, no. But could we still see a climb in people who teeter on that level, we most definitely could. People have been known to make some pretty crass decisions when their back are up against the wall.

But there still leaves one more reason that the tension has been growing in this country. And that reason is one that has been long standing; racial. Throughout the United States history racial issues have extended itself to African Americans fighting the dominant power source, which has historically been White males, for freedom. But what we have now in Related imageAmerica is something far different. Now the large number of White men and women are felling shutout. What’s interesting is that the majority of African Americans still struggle in the United States. So if these White men
and women feel slighted, who are they losing to in the end. Because the business environment is still predominantly White, college universities, medical field, engineering, politics, and outside of basketball and football, the vast majority of sports.

In the end, if the confidence is not placed back into the lives of the American people we could start to see radicals taking hold in our country. The Middle East won’t be the only problem on the government’s hands. People are becoming desperate and that’s the real problem. So many get upset with Trump calling him racist and gender biased. But the real hateful person is lurking and watching from afar. Yes, Trump is flawed because he’s not used to taking orders, which is something you must be willing to do as president. So Related imagehe’s shooting from the hip, causing himself to lose support. But I can’t agree with the hate aspect of people’s view on him. Yet I will say, people voted for him out of desperation. And if they will vote for him out of desperation, how long before real threats present themselves into our society. Moving forward, he need to stop delving so much into petty behavior and the citizens have to work with our leader, otherwise draining the swamp will be draining to sewer, but in reference to radicals and not politicians. Because at this moment that sewer is becoming clogged with raw sewage looking to present themselves.

ISSAH YA’LLS PRESODENT!: WHY POLITICIANS FAKE FOR THE BLACK VOTE

Image result for hilary jive talk

“I likes me some malt liquor, watermelon, fried chicken, and your vote.”


Ever take a look at the evolutionary chart at how man evolved. We went from ape-like in form to a full grown human walking upright. But evolution is not the topic of discussion today. The topic today revolves around race and politics. Well, what does evolution have to do with race and politics. And when I say race, I mean ethnicity. The reason I opened with evolution is because of the way in which politicians communicate with African Americans. With everyone else, they speak like the upright human, yet when it comes to us, they operate as if they must lower themselves to talk up. Almost as if the person is far less superior or comedic in seriousness.

What do I mean by communicating in a lowering manner. Well, have you ever been to the zoo. When you see a monkey in the cage, you cuff your arms at the elbow and bring your fingers toward your armpits. You make monkey noises because the monkey is a joke. The monkey is inferior to you and you think by mimicking the monkey it makes you connect to them on some level. You make monkey noises, and the monkey approaches you, preforming flips about the cage. Then you laugh and go, I think he’s trying to connect to me. You might actually be pissing the monkey off and don’t even know it. But what do you care, the monkey is locked up. Can’t do any harm when you’re locked up.

But seeing politicians behave this way, is it all them? Or do we as African Americans play a role in the behavior? Because when politicians are speaking before a crowd of anyone else, they talk in their normal voices. But around Black people, they swap their normal day-to-day voice for an infliction in dialogue synonymous with Black people. The reason I ask what role we play in this behavior is because we support these people. They come into Black churches, community centers, and social gatherings. Get the vote by behaving in this ill manner, then you never see them again. That’s until they need something such as our vote for the next election cycle; when the madness starts all over again.

For the reasons above is why so many young Black males and females were turned off by Hilary Clinton. She was so over-the-top with her antics, it made us more uncomfortable than comfortable. From her admitting her need to always carry around hot sauce for her fried chicken to dancing on the Elle DeGeneres show to hip hop music. But, like I said before; how does she know to behave this way? I don’t think we are the teachers, but I do believe we operate  like the monkey flipping in the cage. We’ve (Black people) become too entertained by White people performing Black things.

In the end, unless we make a demand for it to change it won’t change. I know what some people think, “Maybe she’s just trying to connect to our culture. But that’s not connecting just because you can play dominos with Black men in Harlem. Connecting is noticing their is a problem in the Black community and having a sound plan as well as taking appropriate measures in dealing with the issue. It’s the equivalent to me as a Black man going into the Jewish community spinning a dreidel, wearing a yamaka, and performing traditional folk dances to connect to them. Instead, I should be focusing on designing measures to decrease anti-Semitic crimes and ways in preserving culture in this ever-changing cultural climate where so many cultures are lost.

TOMI, OH TOMI: HOW AGENDAS ARE MORE FAKE THAN WE KNOW

Image result for TOMI

“Which side are you on?”


Conservative talk host of The Blaze’s Tomi Lahren was suspended this past week amidst comments she had made while on air. They weren’t her usual conservative views, but views that swayed a little in the opposite direction. These views got her suspended from The Blaze. Now, people on the left would see this as a good thing. I myself lean a little more left than right, yet I had to take a closer look at this one. Tomi Lahren has been outspoken for quite some time regarding her political viewpoints. But now she’s suspended for statements regarding pro-choice on abortion. Hmm, I find it odd, well why odd.

We live in a country where you have to pick a side on a particular issue. If you pick that side then fine. But if you question something from that side which goes against the side you will lose big. It’s because agendas in America are about not crossing the viewpoint line. As long as you’re down for what I’m pushing, I’m fine with you. But the moment I disagree, I become the biggest piece of garbage around. It’s because we have factions, and a disagreement means a divide in the faction. This is a main reason why I can’t watch the news. They’re places where people fight for ratings, not necessarily seeking the truth in what they report.

What do I mean by the news, I mean both liberal (CNN) and conservative (FOX). And anytime I talk to people, they tend to have one station they patronize. But, since when is it rational to have one viewpoint in the world. How do you not challenge a belief system instead of blindly following. Yet if you challenge the belief you can lose a job. So what should you do in this world? Should you speak up and speak out, or shut up and fall in line? Are you going to take the righteous road or the say what’s expected of you road? Tomi Lahren honestly thought she could speak from her own morale. When in reality, you speak by way of who makes your career.

She received what amounted to a career assault on her person. Someone walked by groped her, and when she turned around to swat them away, the person had long gone. Now who do you complain to regarding this assault? But is it all the conservatives? My answer to that is absolutely not; it just happened to Tomi. There are plenty of liberals that are phony in their agenda. Men and women in the fashion industry ostracized Tiffany Trump at a runway show for the comments her father made. But let’s be clear, he is supposedly disrespectful toward women, yet they have spent years degrading women on their physical appearance. Trump is supposed to be bigoted, yet fashion designers use hundreds of models at fashion weeks, but when it comes to Black women their comment is same, “It’s not my astatic.”

Not my astatic has been used so much when describing working with Black people, that it has become subject for much debate. Hollywood actors stand and criticize, yet would never throw a Hollywood executive’s name under the bus for excluding minorities from acting roles or women from directing jobs. So the left is just as bad as the right. In the end, there is no real side to take. Now the book 48 laws of power speaks against standing alone. Yet standing with a group is just as dangerous in society. I guess agendas will always be apart of our world. In that case, there will always be a constant rotation of Tomi’s being ripped for showing that divide in the faction as well.
