Trump voters motivated by racism may be
violating the Constitution. Can they be stopped?

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 1/18/2020 4:09:04 PM

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

Berlatsky is a total liar. Nothing that he says in the early parts of this screed are factual, so I am certain that the rest of it will be just a counter factual. Go to Hades, Noah. Your lying is real. The claimed racism is not.

That tired, torn "racist" card is used again. The left uses it to cudgel conservatives each and every time they see or hear something they don't like. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is sick and tired of it. I WILL have my say on election day.

NBC (Nothing But Commies) is scared shiffless, just like the other commie/leftards who know what is going on. They can't buy President Trump, they can't control him, they can't blackmail him and they see their former plantation Blacks leaving in droves.

I cannot believe this rant, filled with misinformation, disinformation, half-truths, and outrageous suggestions, got past even an NBC editor. What has happened to our national media? It is beyond worthless. NBC is intentionally pumping disingenuous, divisive, and destructive information into the minds of our citizens.

Here's how it works. When you don't vote their way, you are either racist or one of the phobes. I'm guessing the author is between 22 and 27 years old and doesn't know how to wipe his...! If you haven't already noticed this about ALL so-called progressives, they are spoiled, immature brats constantly whining when they don't get their way. I predict that after the 2020 elections, the Democrats will be as effective as Jeremy Corbin's Labour Party in the UK. In other words, they will be so far out in the cold that even the MSM won't be able to help them.

Ran a Duck Duck Go search on this guy, came across and article from 2014 - this is the beginning paragraph: "Jun 16, 2014Yesterday at Salon, some guy named Noah Berlatsky took out a hatchet and went after Bob Dylan.. Ok, I get it. Websites need heavy traffic and attacking Bog Dylan is an easy way to get thousands of Dylan fans to click on a story."

At the end of the article there are no real answers. Sounds like something that would have been printed in the old “Onion”. Over sixty three million Americans voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and more then that, possibly including up to 30% of African-American voters according to current polls, will cast ballots for Trump in November. Can you imagine attempting to figure out if each of those individual voters cast ballots because of the obsolete concept of racism swirling around inside their heads?

I got to see the seeds of this phenomenon planted in school, where everyone's opinion was treated with respect no matter how stupid it was, and the darker the skin of the person making the statement, the more weight it was given. Now we have Maxine and AOC, as well as a host of others, running things as if it was a special ed class. I didn't want this. I argued against it at the time. But here we are.

Yes, the argument is idiotic, but think about whether that matters. It does not. The Dems have already removed your free speech 1A right, and are working on your right to defend yourself, 2A. It should not be seen as a long way from where they are to where they want to be -- that if you vote "wrong", which means to say, "for a Conservative or a Republican", then your vote should be invalid.

You won’t hear this from the media, but America under President Trump is doing well. Very well, in fact. A true read of the state of our union is simple: We’re strong and we’re getting stronger fast. The labor participation rate is breaking records. Unemployment is at historic lows across all demographics. Wages are increasing, faster for those at the lower income levels than for those at the top. China has agreed to a historic trade deal. Congress (finally) passed the new US-Mexico-Canada trade deal which will create jobs across the continent. The stock market keeps breaking records despite impeachment. There’s almost too much good news to pack into one paragraph.

The more Nancy Pelosi tries to get people to take her seriously, the more ridiculous she is. During the impeachment vote, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we all just wear black.” For an entire month after that, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate.” This week, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we have a solemn procession across the floor of the Capitol.” No? Not that? How about fancy ceremonial pens? Would that make anyone take them seriously? Any takers? Nancy stopped just short of ordering commemorative plates from the Franklin Mint

The government of Mexico is offering about 4,000 jobs to caravan migrants from Honduras who are currently attempting to make their way through Guatemala. “There is a way for them to have work. My ideal is full employment – work for everyone… and the right to work guaranteed,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a Friday press conference reported on by the Anadolu Agency. The Mexican president’s comment comes as approximately 3,000 migrants from Honduras and El Salvador are reportedly making their way from their home countries through Guatemala. The stated goal of the migrants is reportedly to transit through Mexico to the U.S. border.

Portsmouth, Virginia, councilman Nathan Clark participated in his city’s Second Amendment Sanctuary vote while carrying an AR-15. The Virginian-Pilot reports that two liberals, Councilman Shannon Glove and Vice Mayor Lisa Lucas-Burke, were critical of Clark’s decision to bring his gun to the vote and asked him to apologize for doing so. Councilman Bill Moody defended Clark, saying, “I do not believe that Council(man) Clark needs to apologize for exercising his right as a law enforcement officer to carry his weapon to a public meeting. I can appreciate liberals’ knee jerk reactions but if they have a problem with the law they should use the system they now control to change it.”

Lev Parnas is to the Impeachment Trial as Julie Swetnick was to the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, if Republicans let Democrats get away with it. Recall that after the Kavanaugh hearings were done, but before the committee vote, Democrats leaked that they had a surprise witness they had known about for several weeks, Christine Blasey Ford. Her claim that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school fell apart when the four people she said were present in the house that night all said they had no memory of such an event — not just the sexual assault, but even of being in the house as a group.

He is not only the cause of all known phenomena in the universe but the cause of all potential phenomena as well.” Last week the theory was offered up as an explanation for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian passenger plane.

My wife Mary and I spent a wonderful weekend in California with fellow Trump supporters filming the music video for my Trump Train 2020 song. We boarded our flight back home to the East Coast on Sunday at 8 P.M., arriving at BWI airport in Maryland on Monday at 10:30 am. We were exhausted. The taxi driver taking us to our car was listening to NPR. A radio show host and his caller were lying about Trump, venomously declaring him a serial liar. Perhaps it was because I was so tired that I had zero tolerance. I spouted, “Those guys are lying jerks!”

This is some news that should absolutely terrify Democrats. They know they need Wisconsin and other rust belt states to beat Trump in 2020 but the crowd at Trump’s recent rally there proves winning the state is going to be extremely difficult for them. More than half of the people at Trump’s rally were not even Republicans. Red State reports: Mind-Blowing! 58% Of Attendees at Trump’s Wisconsin Rally Were NOT Republicans, Up from 43% in Ohio Several days ago, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale posted statistics from last week’s rally held in Toledo, OH, which showed that 43% of attendees identified as either Democratic or Independent. I called that figure “stunning” in a recent post.

The Women's March is set to take place on Saturday. Some wintry weather is expected to dampen turnout at the fourth annual event being held in the nation's capital. Much like the current crop of Democratic candidates, the various activists and affiliates that once participated in the demonstration have recently begun turning on one another, as any coalition of radical leftists tends to do. This year, a week-long program "that includes a story slam, brunch with drag queens and civil disobedience training for activists" was held in the run up to Saturday's event,

New York Times columnist David Brooks can’t believe who has joined President Donald Trump’s impeachment legal defense team and thinks their careers will be negatively impacted. Brooks warned that Rep. Adam Schiff will “just walk all over” the prominent legal experts announced who will be part of laying out Trump’s defense in the Senate impeachment trial. The newest additions according to reports on Friday include Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and former independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, Ken Starr.

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

Hillary Clinton opened up about her marital struggles with Bill Clinton in an upcoming documentary about the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. “I didn’t want anything to do with him,” Clinton said, appearing to tear up, in a trailer of the four-part series which premieres in March on Hulu. The Clintons’ marriage faced a difficult period when Bill had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his presidency. He initially denied the affair under oath, which led to his impeachment in December 1998. Months earlier, Chelsea Clinton, who was 18 years old around the time the Lewinsky scandal played out, put herself between her parents

Monica Lewinsky responded with some choice words Friday to the news that Ken Starr will join President Trump’s impeachment defense team — tweeting, “Are you f—king kidding me?”The famously scandal-scarred former White House intern — whose affair with President Bill Clinton was exposed by Starr, leading to Clinton’s impeachment in 1998 — appeared to be flabbergasted. (Snip) In the 1990s, Starr investigated Clinton and wrote a report that ultimately led to his impeachment in the House, not to mention revealed the married then-president’s affair with his intern.

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) warned on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week” that if Republican senators do not allow witnesses in the impeachment of President Donald Trump, they will be held accountable by voters. Schiff said, “We will be fighting for a fair trial.”He continued, “If the Senate decides if the Senator McConnell prevails and there are no witnesses, it will be the first impeachment trial that goes to conclusion without witnesses. The atmosphere in the Senate when I came with the other House managers, and we read the articles was one befitting something that has only happened three times in the nation’s history.

Prince Harry and Meghan will no longer use their HRH titles and will not receive public funds for royal duties, Buckingham Palace has announced. The couple will also no longer formally represent The Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they intend to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. The new arrangement comes into effect in spring this year, the palace said. The statement comes after senior royals held talks on Monday about the future role for the couple, who this month announced they wanted to "step back" as senior royals.

Prince Harry has spoken of his 'great sadness that it has come to this' as he breaks his silence this evening over Megxit and laments it was not possible to find the new life he wanted. The Duke of Sussex was at a formal private dinner at the Ivy, in Chelsea, for vulnerable children's charity Sentebale, which founded in 2006, when he made the comments. In an emotional speech, the 35-year-old said that the UK is a place that he loves and that will 'never change' but that he had 'no other option' than to quit senior royal duties. Harry also paid a stirring tribute to his grandmother, calling her his 'commander-in- chief'

Sherrilyn Ifill was returning to Baltimore from New York on Amtrak train 80 Friday, as she does at the end of many working weeks, when she says a junior conductor approached and asked her to give up her seat. To say that the internationally known civil rights attorney, scholar and activist bristled would be an understatement. “When I was laying her out to the [lead] conductor, at one point, I said, ‘I can sit where I want,’ and I thought, ‘This isn’t 1950,’ ” the Baltimore resident, who is African American, wrote in her Twitter feed Friday night.

House Democrat leaders pursuing the removal of President Donald Trump from office appear reluctant to let go of their investigation after voting to impeach him last month, even after Speaker Nancy Pelosi transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate this week. “Plainly, there are loose ends here that the House should have tied up and that, importantly, the House is continuing to investigate,” former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andrew McCarthy wrote in an editorial Wednesday, the day House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) finally handed over the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.
