BLM’s Financial Footing is on the Ropes

A decade of their misdeeds has transpired since BLM came into existence

Published

on

BLM has proven itself to be a group skilled in corporate extortion, intimidation, and protests that have led to looting, rioting, arson, and violence. Thus, reports of Black Lives Matter’s forthcoming insolvency are heart-warming: it couldn’t happen to a more worthy organization.

In 2021, their demands focused on prosecuting Donald Trump and his supporters. In essence, BLM was searching for a crime, any crime to pin on them. Not that BLM cares one bit about the U.S. Constitution or the Capitol, they had been seeking “full accountability” for anybody who participated in the January 6th breach of the Capitol, and, in their way of thinking, that includes Donald Trump.

Crackdown on Others, not Us

BLM insisted that Congress avoid employing the Capitol breach as a rationale for cracking down on BLM’s own demonstrations and marches. Nonetheless, BLM’s annual summer activities since 2020 have precipitated looting, riots, arson, and even murder. To this day, BLM-affiliated demonstrations in major cities are responsible for major property damage, intimidation of citizens and government officials, and violence.

In a press release, BLM stated, “We are joining Representatives Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Cori Bush, Jamaal Bowman, and others who are demanding that Trump be immediately convicted in the United States Senate. Trump must also be banned from holding elected office in the future.”

The group added “Trump has always used his digital media platforms recklessly and irresponsibly to spread lies and disinformation. Now it is clearer than ever that his digital media is also used to incite violence and promote its continuation. He must be stopped from encouraging his mob and further endangering our communities, even after the inauguration.”

If the above is not a textbook case of projection, what is? BLM accuses Trump and his supporters of exactly what BLM does nearly every day.

Chop off  Their Heads

BLM has long sought to punish any Republican who exercise the same rights as Democrats did in the 2000, 2004, and 2016 presidential elections. According to BLM, any elected GOP official who voiced concern about the 2020 Electoral College count, or showed support for Donald Trump after the election, must be expelled from office. Apparently, BLM couldn’t be bothered to research the rules of the Senate, and cares little about free speech for all.

BLM asserted that, “More than half the Republican representatives and multiple senators stoked Trump’s conspiracy theories and encouraged the white supremacists to take action to overturn the election.”

Enduring Black Privilege

Against the odds, news about BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors surfaced: She was buying four expensive houses, some in predominantly white, wealthy neighborhoods, all consistent with much of what we know about BLM and its founding. She also was alleged to be viewing resort properties in Bahama, where condo prices range from $5 to $20 million.

A decade full of their misdeeds has passed since BLM came into existence in 2013. Khan-Cullors and two other African-American women had established this ‘political’ movement in response to what they deemed to be a miscarriage of justice and nonexistent legal regard for black lives. What was the initiating spark? For defending himself after his nose had been broken and while his head was being smashed into the sidewalk, Hispanic American George Zimmerman was acquitted for killing Trayvon Martin.

The Zimmerman verdict is now old news. Anyone who claims that the trial was not fair didn’t follow it closely and relied on second-hand commentary. In the face of intense media and public scrutiny, it is difficult to imagine a more thorough review of all available evidence by both sides. Yet, lingering media coverage remains highly biased in favor of Martin.

The Hard Facts? Who Cares?

A well-documented police account of the shooting, supported by forensic analysis, revealed that Martin perpetrated “an unprovoked attack” on Zimmerman, first punching him in the face, then knocking him to the ground, and repeatedly bashing his head into the sidewalk, before attempting to grab Zimmerman’s gun.

A highly troubled seventeen-year-old, even with his father present in his life, Martin had embarked upon a life of theft and thuggery. Tracy Martin, his father, was a longtime gang member who introduced his son to guns, violence, and drugs. To ignore Trayvon Martin’s propensity for intermittent violence or to suggest that after he spotted Zimmerman he did not become the aggressor is pure folly.

To the chagrin of BLM founders, the preponderance of evidence revealed that the legal system worked as it should and that Trayvon Martin was the precipitating force leading to his own death.

A Ruse Among Ruses

As such, BLM was founded upon a lie, continues to lie, and has expertly cajoled, threatened, and extorted major corporations, and public and private organizations, raking in multimillions of dollars for the founders. Their bankruptcy is a just reward. Soon, perhaps, the founders will be exposed for their extensive list of crimes.

GOP Primaries, for GOP Registered Voters

It is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate

Published

on

Let us resolve to keep our primary voting to those who are registered Republicans. One can make the argument that there are closet Republicans who, for fear of reprisal in the workplace, cannot join the Republican party but are, nevertheless, Republican in sentiment.

However, this is a small group. And, they are more than offset by hordes of Democrats who, if allowed into Republican primaries will do their dirty work as they have done throughout counties in North Carolina and throughout the nation.

Only Republicans

Overall, it is to our overwhelming advantage to ensure that only registered Republicans are able to participate.

As a case in point, on the national level, the RINO Nikki Haley would be out of the race if not for Democrat voters stepping over the line in coordinated effort and voting in Republican primaries. Granted, she is backed by billionaire mega-donors who fear Donald Trump. If Democrats could not vote in the GOP primaries, however, the mega-donors dollars wouldn’t be worth much.

As a result of Haley staying in the race, Donald Trump has to spend a bit more than otherwise, and deflect some of his attention away from the Democrats, the swamp, and the Marxist’s plans to destroy our country.

Fracturing Along Fault Lines

The panoply of liberal and Leftist policies are harmful to society

Published

on

Biden and company want to contort the right to vote, endlessly fund Ukraine, kowtow to Middle East terrorists, pack the Supreme Court, end the filibuster, disband the electoral college, treat January 6th protestors like insurrectionists, convict Trump on SOMETHING, appease China, and permanently make tens of millions of Americans totally dependent on government entitlements.

In recent years, the questionable lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates over COVID-19, and Democrats’ willingness to overlook street violence, enhances my view that the Left loves the idea of total authority and forevermore imposing its will on all of us.

Insanity Over the Top

The panoply of liberal or Leftist viewpoints, from no need for voter ID to restrictions on the 1st Amendment, to indoctrinating children is harmful to society.

Is it acceptable to teach children that there are more than 50 genders? Do you believe, as Leftists do that children may choose their gender? Do you think that cross-dressers ought to be reading to children at story hour? Should the sciences, mathematics, and other core academic disciplines be taught to accommodate ‘politically diverse’ points of view?

Are you okay with colleges holding separate graduation exercises and celebrations for different ethnic minorities? Martin Luther King, Jr, must be rolling over in his grave. Should entire college curricula be redesigned because most of the great works of literature throughout history have been written by white males?

Should student loans be exonerated? Should colleges establish safe spaces? Are you perturbed when conservative speakers are disrupted from speaking on campus, or are banned from campus? Curiously, can a university promise students an unbiased education when 97% of college professors’ political donations go to Democrats?

Open the Spigots!

Should Medicare be provided for all and, if so, how do you pay for it? Is late-trimester abortion acceptable? After a baby is born, is it the right of the mother and the doctor to choose whether or not that person will continue to live?

Should we have open borders, and let in anyone who wants to come here, now approaching 9 million since Biden was installed? Are illegal immigrants to be given free healthcare once they cross the border, as all Democrat presidential contenders stated on live TV in 2020? How do hordes arrive at the southern border, well-fed and hydrated, after trekking 100s or 1000s of miles, with sturdy walking shoes and cell phones? Should they be flown and bussed all over the U.S. courtesy of the Biden administration? Are sanctuary cities a good idea, and do they support the lives and aspirations of actual U.S. citizens?

When newspaper headlines scream about gun violence, is wringing your hands over the issue any solace for families in Chicago or Baltimore ghetto communities who experience gun violence on a daily basis? Do you care about the issue, or do you only get riled up when the mainstream media stokes your emotions by giving World War II coverage to carefully crafted, elevated cases?

Is calling others racist acceptable when, in your own heart, you know that you are biased at times against this group or that? Is virtue signaling an acceptable form of social participation, or should one actually take appropriate, non-violent action to address a perceived wrong? Is a comment from 30 or 40 years ago made by a celebrity — or a politician, for that matter — enough to cancel his or her career?

Goals and Tactics of Violent Groups

Are the goals and violent tactics of Antifa acceptable to you? If they’re proud of what they stand for and forthright in their actions, why do they wear ski masks? Appearing in selected cities in time to cause trouble, and leading the turmoil following the death of George Floyd, how many of them actually hold jobs?

In pursuit of protests, do any pay for their own transportation and housing costs? If they do not pay for themselves, who is paying? Most curiously, why do they often go after the most vulnerable people they can find in any gathering? Is it okay when law enforcement stands down in the face of violence committed by those on the left?

The Left embraces mass insanity and it’s getting more absurd all the time. Yet, it appears that Leftists do not understand the magnitude and ramifications of many of their political and social views. Their agenda, fully implemented, would destroy our civilization in less than a few years.
One Generation

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men [and women] were free.”

It would be nice to reach consensus, in some way, with those on the Left, however, my sensibilities cry out and say that would be cultural and national suicide.
