Being as it's election day, I thought it would be a good idea to - real quickly - give my top three things the Left doesn't want anyone talking about as we all head to the polls today. I mean, we know what they do want us focused on: gender war, race war, class war… basically insert any other made up social problem, sit back, and watch the country eat itself over the division. That's the New Left playbook that's actually been building since a group of college professors came to the United States from Frankfurt Germany back in the 30's. It's been a plan 80 years in the making.
But enough of the history lesson. Here's my top three things.
The economy, the economy, the economy. It's no secret that I've got my worries, long term, over the state of our economy. We're only one small correction away from a major problem, or - dare I say - crisis. But right now, as you're dropping your kids off at school and slipping into a polling booth before heading into work… the economy is strong. The country added 250,000 jobs last month smashing expectations. Gross domestic product is up by 3.5%. Wages and salaries rose over 3%. Consumer confidence last month was the highest it's been in nearly two decades. New information from the Fed showed that 74% of the country reported they are "living comfortably". That's 10% higher than it was during Obama's second term.
Is mass crime, violence and hate on the rise? If you listen to the left it sure sounds like it. But the facts don't lie. New FBI data shows that crime in this country is down across the board. In fact, this is the first time crime has dropped in this manner since Obama took the Oval Office. The murder rate dropped by 2%. Violent crime went down by 1%. Now if we could just get Democrats to condemn the violent Left, and groups like Antifa, the crime rate would go down even further. But I wouldn't hold my breath… I have a sneaky suspicion they'd prefer the crime rate to go up.
The Left has called people on the right fascists, race baiters, and even contrary to American values and principles. But I don't think they have any ground to stand on when you - not only - fail to condemn people like Antifa and Louis Farrakhan, but - in many cases - actually support them. In the case of Farrakhan, the leaders of the biggest #resistance social justice organizers - The Women's March - have ties to him.
Obama has now been caught taking candid photos with him. Representatives Keith Ellison, Barbara Lee of California, Maxine Waters, Danny Davis in Illinois, Andre Carson in Indiana, Gregory Meeks in New York and Al Green in Texas… all have ties to Farrakhan. Not only is he a racist but a raging anti semite. He advocates violence. He was just in Iran on Sunday leading "Death to America" chants. And the Left actually has the balls to say anyone at all is inferior to them when it comes to American ideals?
There's a lot more I could add to this list, but these three alone - in a more rational time - would have been enough to practically guarantee an election day landslide. I'm not saying these facts are comfortable for our friends on the Left… but they are undisputable.
