MLK and Many Black Leaders were Republicans

At the beginning of the week, I wrote, in honor of MLK Day, that Dr. King undoubtedly supported a secure Southern border. You Image result for MLK was Republicanmay review it here.

Unsurprisingly, I got a little flack for it from a few on the left.

Yet I don’t know why it’s so surprising. It’s no more a revelation than that Dr. King was a Republican. According to his niece, Dr. Alveda King, MLK was Republican.

This should be a surprise to no one who knows the unvarnished history of America – who advocated for black Americans and who didn’t.

Somehow history has been rewritten. Check that. We know how. I believe it can be traced back to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for before that time, most blacks were Republicans, and for good reason.

But we’ve been taught that the Democrats are the party of civil rights, of minority empowerment and Republicans are racists. It’s irrefutable! read more

Don’t Back Down on Border Security

from the Resurgent:

Stand Fast, Mr. President

Democrats across America are currently declaring racist the very policies they supported under Barack Obama. It was not racist or immoral when he decided to add border barriers. It was not racist or immoral when George W. Bush did. It was not racist or immoral when Bill Clinton did. But Democrats are so invested in believing the worst about President Trump that they are willing to reject the very policies they supported only a few years ago. read more

More Latinos Support the GOP – And There’s Room to Grow Further

President Trump’s popularity among voters has remained relatively consistent over the past couple of years. The haters on the left are baffled by this.

They don’t like it, but I think they’ve accepted the loyalty to and adoration of him by his hard-core supporters. It’s the others they don’t get. Why hasn’t he lost these voters?

Speaking for myself and many like me, we haven’t abandoned him because we’ve successfully been able to separate his policies from his antics.

And they don’t like this either, but the left may also be coming to accept this phenomenon.

What they can’t understand, accept or even tolerate is the support he has garnered among some minority groups. And worse is the fact that it has not waned. read more

WND Exclusive – WHY DEMS WILL NOT IMPEACH TRUMP

by: Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What is the best course of action for the Democrats after seizing control of the House?

See what I did there? This is how the Dems always justify their elections losses. If Republicans win, they “seize control.” If the Dems win, which is apparently the natural order of things, they assume, or re-assume, control. They are King Richard, and we are the Sheriff of Nottingham.

The left is clamoring for articles of impeachment to be brought to bear about five minutes after the new Congress convenes. It’s what their constituents expect, because it’s what House leftists promised they would do. read more

WND Exclusive – GOP is the New Party for Working People

In the past, when someone described the “worker’s party,” they really meant the communist proletarian class: Marxist “workers of the world unite” and such. For capitalists and free-marketers, this carried with it a negative connotation.

But no longer. No longer should the worker’s party be decried as undesirable – for the worker’s party has a new home, and it is in the Republican Party.

It used to be said the left side of the political spectrum was there to look out for the little guy – the common man (and woman) – the vaunted middle class. But no more. Oh sure, the left still lends lip service to this ideal, but they no longer represent this constituent group. read more

Morgan Says Dems Need More than a Blue Wave in 2020

from the Blaze:

Piers Morgan ridicules ‘blue wave,’ says Dems need a better 2020 plan or ‘Trump will drown them’

English journalist Piers Morgan laid into Democrats in an op-ed published Wednesday in the Daily Mail.

Morgan mocked the Democrats’ “blue wave” and suggested that they better have a bigger and better 2020 plan in place if they want a chance at unseating President Donald Trump.

Religion Drives the Desire to Destroy Kavanaugh

I did not watch but did listen to some of the Thursday Senate hearing circus sideshow. Frankly, it’s worse than that – much worse. It could be the new season of FX Network’s series “American Horror Story.”

I say this not for just Brett Kavanaugh, but for all of us. What we see playing out on national television and internet streaming is an American Horror Story, as this tragic scenario can now be perpetrated upon any man the radical left disagrees with.

Kavanaugh is being called a predator – but I believe it’s high time for the gloves to come off and call these women, these accusers, what they really are. In fact they are the predators, not Judge Kavanaugh.

And if this stunt these false accusers are attempting to collectively pull off was not their idea, then they should be called something else, and deservedly so. That something else is prostitute, and the politicians, the media and leftist special-interest gangs are the pimps. read more

Watching this Senate hearing and the soap opera surrounding it is indeed a microcosm of both dysfunctional political parties and our government as a whole. read more

Turns Out, Free Stuff is Really Expensive

from IBD:

Democratic Socialism: Who Knew That ‘Free’ Could Cost So Much?

Since the Democratic Party took a turn for the worse toward so-called democratic socialism, the party’s leading lights have laid the promises on pretty thick. Free Medicare for all! Guaranteed income! Guaranteed jobs! Subsidized housing! Free college! Universal pre-school! Wow, and all for free.

Well, not exactly. In a devastating piece that appeared on the left-of-center web site Vox (to its credit), Manhattan Institute fellow Brian Riedl went through the simple math of what free actually costs. It’s a lot.

It’s not just the free aspect, but the fact that the democratic socialists have made so many promises that must be paid for that will make it so tough to swallow for most voters. read more
