ELDER PATRIOT – “This is not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around for two hundred and forty years. We have had free and fair elections. We have accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. And that is what must be expected of anyone standing on the debate stage during a general election.” – Hillary Clinton
“Our inner cities are a disaster. You get shot walking to the store. They have no education. They have no jobs. I will do more for African-Americans and Latinos than she can ever do in ten lifetimes.” – Donald Trump
Hillary Clinton was so confident that she was going to win the election that she made accepting the outcome of the election the cornerstone of her campaign speeches after that debate.
Since the election Mrs. Clinton has:
- Directed the funding of anti-Trump rallies by her largest donors,
- Directed electoral recounts limited to three states that she lost,
- Had her minions push the popular vote narrative despite the fact that the Constitution purposely constrained the popular vote in the interest of empowering as many states as possible. In fact, the Framers were almost unanimous in their establishment of the Electoral College that Alexander Hamilton began Federalist 68 with these words:
“To the People of the State of New York: The mode of appointment of the Chief Magistrate of the United States is almost the only part of the system, of any consequence, which has escaped without severe censure, or which has received the slightest mark of approbation from its opponents.”
- Organized a revolt among the electors who are duty bound to cast their votes for her opponent.
The Clinton machine’s attack on both, the peaceful transition of power that has marked every previous presidential election, and the legitimacy of our next president by undermining the very pillars of our electoral process have been as thorough as they are dangerous.
What about Donald Trump’s promise to rebuild our inner cities that have been turned into little more than expensive vote-harvesting centers for Democrats funded by America’s taxpayers?
Yesterday Trump took the first step towards fulfilling his promise to rebuild our inner cities when he met with NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown, Ray Lewis and Pastor Darrell Scott. All three have long spoken about neglect of the Black community by establishment politicians.
Following the meeting Jim Brown, who retired from pro football to crusade for racial justice, said, “We couldn’t have had a better meeting. The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic.”
Lewis said of Jim Brown “wherever Papa JB asks me to go I go. His vision is beyond platforms.” After the meeting with Trump Lewis had this to say, “forget black or white. Black or white is irrelevant. The bottom line is job creation and economic development in these urban areas to change the whole scheme of what our kids see.”
How different is this from President Obama’s comments on Monday when he told an interviewer that America has, “by no means overcome legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism.”
That struck this writer as gratuitous and self-serving considering that the two black men were sitting in the oval office at the time.
Barack Hussein Obama has been the most racially divisive president in my lifetime. This was not by accident it was by design.
Earlier this week Trump said he didn’t want to take a wrecking ball to Obama’s legacy but that is exactly what the outcome will be if he fulfills his promise to Black Americans who have been ignored by Barack Obama for the past eight years.
What we have witnessed since the election is Hillary working to undermine our electoral process while Donald Trump has begun undermining the establishment that has repeatedly worked to keep Blacks on 21st century plantations.
Americans should be proud of themselves. They elected a businessman over a politician. Everyone acknowledges that politicians are inveterate liars. If Trump is successful it may pave a path for successful American businessmen and women to replace our failed political class…Just as the Framers intended.
