Last Summer, the coverage of the D-Day 75-year anniversary brought many World War II issues back into focus. One of them, that lingers to this day, is the use by those on the left of holocaust analogies when it comes to protecting our national sovereignty.

Following President Trump’s decision, which Biden is now reversing, to shore up control at our southern border, a popular blogger captured the thoughts of numerous pundits on the Left when he wrote (paraphrased):

This situation is going to become more extreme and justifiably so. We dwell in extreme times. The harm being done to each of us by the Trump Administration is extreme.

As such, we do not feel that Trump administration officials ought to be able to live their lives in peace and affluence while they inflict serious damage on significant portions of the U.S. population. Being unable to comfortably visit restaurants and attend gatherings is merely the minimum baseline. These administration officials, who are merrily shoving America down the road to fascism and white nationalism, are simply delusional if they do not believe that the backlash is going to become much worse.

Skipping Along to Fascism

“Merrily shoving America down the road to fascism?” Could the hyperbole be any greater? Or any more off-the-mark?

“White nationalism?” Several news sources corroborated that Black support for President Trump was rising during his entire term. One source noted that the Trump’s approval rating among African-Americans, pre-election, was at 24%, a staggeringly high number for Trump who won a mere 8% of the African-American vote in 2016.

The above figures were not out of line. A NAACP poll released in August, 2018 showed that President Trump’s approval among black voters stood at 21%. The Washington Examiner reported in April of 2020 that Trump’s approval rating among black voters was near 20%:

A NPR/Marist poll showed that his approval rating among Hispanics soared from 31 percent in December, 2018 to 50 percent in January 2019. Granted, polls numbers vary widely from time to time.

Holocaust Analogies

As reported by RealClearPolitics.com, “Growing support among Latinos would surely surprise many Trump critics in Washington and the legacy media, who remain fixated on border issues.” Nevertheless, “So intense is their hysteria regarding border enforcement, that people like former CIA Director Michael Hayden compared our detention policies to the Auschwitz concentration camp in a tweet and MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch proclaimed on Morning Joe that ALL Trump voters are essentially Nazis.”

If you’re on the Left, perhaps some self-reflection is in order. Do you believe that the Blacks and Hispanics have too little intelligence to know better than to have supported Trump? If you’re Caucasian, do you speak for minorities?

Do you believe Donald Trump supported Aryan Nations, considering that his daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism and married a Jew, and that from this marriage, Trump has three Jewish grandchildren?

Did you show concern when Obama/Biden separated adults and children at the border in greater numbers (actually many times that of Trump) and to much worse conditions? And that Joe Biden now is picking up where he left off as VP?

Selective Concern

If you were diametrically opposed to the Trump administration’s attempt to resolve the immigration problem in general, and the border crisis in particular, here are questions to consider:

1. When people arrived 100 to 130 years ago, no aid was supplied from the rest of the country, but now we are to pay for all who step foot in the U.S.?

2. Should we open our borders to everyone?

3. Should everyone who we allow into the U.S. receive welfare, food stamps, and HUD Section 8 Housing?

4. We are $27.9 trillion in debt and counting, with both parties at fault. Should we hit U.S. citizens with a special tax assessment of, say, $5000 a year and then allow everyone who wants to enter our country to do so, and hope this money will cover the multi-millions who show up?

5. If even one child is being transported by human slavers or drug runners and we leave them together, are you taking responsibility for what they might do to the child?

6. The vast majority of the country agrees it is the parents’ fault for bringing the children. Can you see they aren’t all racists but, perhaps, have a more balanced view?

7. Thousands of U.S. citizens have died at the hands of people who shouldn’t be here. Do you have any sympathy, at all, for any of them?

8. Do you have any plan to slow down illegal immigration?

Miracles Happen Occasionally

When one actually thinks through the points above, it’s a bit easier to adopt a somewhat broader point of view. Regardless, it’s time for everyone so ensconced to leave the liberal plantation for at least a couple hours a week.

**The Red Report: A Conservative Perspective on Potential VP Picks for Donald Trump in 2024**

Check out Chris Widener’s new video looking at the three VP finalists. A deeper look in print below the video!

As the 2024 election approaches, the political landscape is abuzz with speculation regarding who Donald Trump will choose as his running mate. Three names frequently mentioned are JD Vance, Doug Burgum, and Marco Rubio. Each of these potential vice-presidential candidates brings unique strengths and a conservative vision that aligns with Trump’s agenda. Let’s delve into the qualifications and appeal of each candidate from a conservative viewpoint.

**JD Vance: The Outsider with a Powerful Narrative**

JD Vance, author of the best-selling memoir “Hillbilly Elegy,” has emerged as a potent force in conservative politics. His life story, rising from poverty in Appalachia to becoming a successful venture capitalist, resonates deeply with many Americans who feel left behind by the political elite. Vance’s candidacy embodies the American Dream, making him an inspirational figure for a broad swath of the electorate.

Vance’s conservative credentials are robust. He is a staunch advocate for economic policies that prioritize American workers, a critical issue in the Trump agenda. His focus on revitalizing manufacturing and curbing the influence of globalist policies appeals directly to the heartland voters who were instrumental in Trump’s 2016 victory. Additionally, Vance’s critique of Big Tech aligns with the increasing conservative sentiment against Silicon Valley’s unchecked power and perceived biases.

In the Senate, Vance has proven to be a strong voice for conservative values, consistently advocating for pro-life policies, Second Amendment rights, and a strong national defense. His ability to articulate these positions with clarity and passion makes him a formidable candidate. Vance’s outsider status, combined with his eloquent advocacy for the working class, would complement Trump’s message and broaden his appeal.

**Doug Burgum: The Businessman and Problem-Solver**

Doug Burgum, the Governor of North Dakota, is another compelling choice for Trump’s running mate. Burgum’s background as a successful businessman before entering politics mirrors Trump’s own journey, suggesting a natural synergy between the two. His experience in leading a state with a strong economy and low unemployment rates demonstrates his capability as an effective administrator and problem-solver.

Burgum’s governance style emphasizes fiscal responsibility, limited government, and economic growth—core tenets of conservative ideology. Under his leadership, North Dakota has seen significant advancements in technology and energy, particularly in oil production. Burgum’s expertise in energy policy would be invaluable in an administration committed to achieving energy independence and reducing reliance on foreign oil.

Moreover, Burgum’s pragmatic approach to governance, coupled with his ability to implement conservative policies effectively, showcases his potential to appeal to a broader electorate. His calm demeanor and focus on results over rhetoric could provide a stabilizing influence, balancing Trump’s more combative style. This blend of business acumen and political effectiveness makes Burgum a strong contender for the vice-presidential slot.

**Marco Rubio: The Experienced Statesman**

Marco Rubio, the Senator from Florida, offers a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of both domestic and international issues. As a former presidential candidate and a prominent figure in the Senate, Rubio’s extensive political background would bring a seasoned perspective to the ticket.

Rubio’s conservative stance on key issues aligns closely with Trump’s platform. He is a vocal advocate for tax cuts, deregulation, and strengthening the military. His expertise in foreign policy, particularly in relation to Latin America and China, would be an asset in addressing complex global challenges. Rubio’s Cuban heritage and his consistent support for freedom and democracy resonate with many Hispanic voters, potentially broadening the Republican base.

Rubio’s communication skills and ability to articulate a clear, conservative vision make him an effective campaigner. His youthful energy and commitment to conservative principles would appeal to both the Republican base and independent voters. Moreover, Rubio’s legislative accomplishments and his work on bipartisan issues demonstrate his ability to navigate the complexities of Washington, D.C.

In conclusion, JD Vance, Doug Burgum, and Marco Rubio each bring distinct strengths as potential vice-presidential picks for Donald Trump in the 2024 election. Vance’s compelling personal story and advocacy for the working class, Burgum’s business background and effective governance, and Rubio’s extensive experience and foreign policy expertise each offer unique advantages. From a conservative perspective, any of these candidates would complement Trump’s vision and enhance his chances of securing a victory in 2024. The choice will ultimately reflect Trump’s strategic priorities and the direction he wishes to take his campaign and administration.
