Google It for Yourself

Google “trickle-down economics.” You will find that this term has been used against every Republican economic plan since Ronald Reagan. It is used as an invective against their recipe for economic growth. In many cases, they have convinced the economically ignorant that Republicans are trying to help the rich get richer while those on the lower rungs of the ladder of life get crumbs.

Here is the problem: all economics is trickle-down. It all starts with someone with money and/or an idea. Poor people do not create jobs. They may have an idea they think will make money, however, they then have to find someone with money, be it a bank or other lending institution, or a person willing to invest in their idea.

That is trickle-down in a nutshell. Trump’s economic plan allows that to happen. It will free up capital. You can find his economic plan in full on YouTube (linked on my blog). Hillary’s plan, on the other hand, requires government to confiscate that money. Then, the government will decide who shall succeed or fail. What the hell did you think would happen if you take money away from the investor class or continue to make onerous regulations that make it more difficult for lending institutions to lend?

Google “Republican racist” (not in quotes). You will find that every Republican candidate for president since Ronald Reagan has been tarred with that moniker by the Democrats. You will also note that none of them were tagged until they ran for president, and that includes Trump.

I have written over the years about the actual history of racism in America and how it is owned by the Democrat Party. I will not repeat it now, suffice to say the recent email drops by WikiLeaks shows the Democrat party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign used racist, sexist, homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs on a regular basis.  You did not know that? Well, as I pointed out, the media is in destroy Trump mode and will not report on anything that will hurt the election of Hillary Clinton.

Here is Trump’s actions concerning racism and anti-Semitism going back 30 years, and this will show why he was never tagged a racist until he ran for president (worldpoliticus.com/trump-blacks-jews-30-years-ago-just-surfaced-change-whole-election-2).

From the story: “In 1997, Trump defied societal conventions when he purchased his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida and converted it into a private club…‘He put the light on Palm Beach,’ said Abe Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League. ‘Not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination.’”

You see, back then, private golf club practiced overt racism and anti-Semitism by denying membership to people of color and those of the Jewish faith. In fact, Bill Clinton even as president continued to play golf at clubs that did this. He did nothing to change that.

Anyway, back to the story, “Trump went further, asking the town council to lift the existing restrictions on the club, and sending them a copy of, ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,’ a film whose characters defy the race-based discrimination of the day.

The town council would not budge, leading Trump to file a $100 million lawsuit alleging the town was ‘discriminating against Mar-a-Lago, in part because it is open to Jews and African Americans.’”

The incident was profiled in a 1997 Wall Street Journal piece that discussed Trump’s clash with Palm Beach. Eventually, Palm Beach put an end to its discriminatory restrictions.

Those were real actions! That is why when he spoke on his economic policy, he talked about all Americans, not hyphenated groups. Yet, the media will not report this! No! They continue to report on Democrats and Hillary’s good intentions, never the horrible results of those intension’s. Trump laid out all these results in his speech. I have written about those results numerous times.

Last week, I told you the media was in overdrive to make you fear Trump so Hillary, in spite of her documented failings and lies, would be more palatable. Well, usually it takes a couple of months before you find out I was ahead of the curve. Not this time. Last Sunday, Jim Rutenberg, who has taken over the media analysis responsibility at The New York Times wrote a piece, “Balance, Fairness and a Proudly Provocative Presidential Candidate.” Because the bias is so blatant, this article tries not only to explain it, but justify it. The article is about is how the media has had to abandon all of its known norms, abandon all of its supposed objectivity, abandon all of its supposed impartiality. Why? Because Trump is so bad, so dangerous, so un-hinged, that they have no choice but destroy him. They have no choice, for the sake of humanity, decency and saving the planet. 

As Jim Rutenberg explains it, “If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?”

In doing this if you’re a working journalist, you ignore everything about Hillary. You must ignore every potential negative. You must ignore that fact the she and her foundation has ties and has taken big money from dangerous anti-American organizations and people. You do not point out that at a recent Florida rally, the father of the Orlando shooter was sitting three rows behind her.  You are to believe this was an accident by some lowly aid, and forget that those seats are reserved, no matter the candidate, for special people for the visual optics. It is not by chance someone sits there but by the campaign’s choice! You ignore every red flag.  That’s how you do it. You ignore it because Hillary is a liberal Democrat, and that means she’s OK.

To believe this tripe, you also have to believe that this is the first time that they had to become oppositional as journalists. That this is, according to the column, “uncharted territory.” That, again according to the article, “every mainstream, non-opinion journalist you have ever known” finds Trump “untenable.” Sure, you found Bush untenable, you found Reagan untenable. Add in any number of Republicans who’ve run for the Senate, run for the House, you found them all untenable. Yet, according to the column, this is the first time they’ve had to throw out objectivity and become oppositional? This is a joke, right? No! The point is that Rutenberg is not kidding. He thinks that he and his associates in the media are in “uncharted territory” because they’re mainstream, non-opinion journalists. They’ve never, ever had to go where they are going!

That is why it will be like nailing Jell-O to the wall each and every day until Election Day. Every day, the media will distract you with nonsense, out of context quotes and total misinformation to make you believe Trump is not qualified and Hillary is the second coming. Be strong. Mr. Rutenberg let the cat out of the bag. You cannot trust the media. They made up their minds, now they must make up yours.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...
