The Party of Abraham Lincoln

0

For what it is worth, and I am sure it is worth more than words can summarize, The Grand Old Party, formally known as The Republican Party, is truly the party of Abraham Lincoln. He was elected in 1860, and a quick one phrase summary of his Presidency would say with grand resolute, that he helped to defeat the Confederates, and he paved the ultimate pathway to free the slaves.

Always and forever will the Grand Old Party be the party of Abraham Lincoln.

I myself have been a Democrat most of my life. I am, because I believe my family members are, and more so because of my upbringing, it always felt as though that party was the one that had the greater influence on me and my surrounding society. I am an African-American, and I grew up in an urban environment, so like most in those environments, I registered to vote as a Democrat. Luckily enough I even got to witness, the first time around, an actual black man being elected President of The United States of America.

It was monolithic moment, and a true testament to just how far this great nation has come. But regardless of how important of a moment it was, it still doesn’t change what I said. The Republican Party, The Grand Old Party, is still the party of Abraham Lincoln. What Lincoln did for this country, is perhaps as important as any great deed ever done by any man in this nation, and yes, that ought to include George Washington, and all of the founding fathers.

The Emancipation Proclamation effectively acted as legislation that denounced slavery, opening the gateway for many enslaved Africans to gain their citizenship, and fight against the Confederates, and although this act could in no way remove the hundreds of years of injustice The USA and other nations had inflicted upon those slaves, it did essentially help out every African in the long run.

Thanks to the courage of a man like Abraham Lincoln, my ancestors and those I stand amongst now have more of what we call, freedom.

I say all of this, as a reminder to myself, and to any readers that I may have, that regardless of what side of the political aisle you may stand on, don’t let our currently leadership force you into believing one party stands supreme over the other. Regardless of the media backlash against Donald Trump, our current President, I do feel deeply within me that he not only stands for good, but for the safety, aid and security of all citizens in the USA, and not just the wealthy. I do not believe that he has a chance as becoming as great a man as Abraham Lincoln, for the emancipation proclamation did as much justice as writing the country into existence, but that does not mean we are all to write him off for his own personal troubles and gaffes. The man has a purpose, and is to serve the nation. Don’t let his ego get the best of you, for I am sure there are perhaps enormous characters flaws in every former President.

We ought to hold him to the same standard as Lincoln, and in this moment, this is where I will begin to do so. I’ll say again, I doubt that he can do anything for society as great as what Lincoln did, but he has a way of saying he is amongst the best. Remember, always remember that The Grand Old Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln.

The FBI Investigation is Over

0

Earlier in the week, The FBI submitted their investigation of Donald Trump and his associates. The investigation has been the talking point, and primary focus of many news agencies.

President Trump, despite several of his colleagues and campaign associates facing legal troubles, continues to call the overall investigation a witch hunt.

Now, news agencies and The American People, and President Trump, await the release of information in Robert Mueller’s investigative actions against the President.

The Day of Tomorrow.

What will throttle, or should I say, revitalize America’s economy? What modern achievement, which in mass use could benefit people in variances of society, and grant us a reemerging economy? What new idea or creation will be what filters the massive debt that The USA holds?

Will there ever be such an idea?

I am no economist, so it would be difficult for me to give you the answers to my question. I, myself question how the United States of America will surpass the debt that it holds. It almost stands at 23 Trillion Dollars. When I was young, 1 trillion wasn’t a number that I would imagine to be our nation’s debt. Then again, who would I have been for it to have mattered?

No one, basically.

But I am looking at it now, as I have before, as millions of people have, this overwhelming debt that The USA now holds. We live in the era of technological advances, and we coexist with some of the world’s greatest minds. Their creations though, their magnificent gifts to the world fails to solve America’s debt. Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook will not be the business to revitalize America’s economy.

The obvious Military Industrial Complex fuels The President’s current bid for a wall along the southern border. The President foolishly failed to amass enough money to complete the wall, forcing America to withstand a government shutdown while in conjunction activating the distress factors of declaring a National Emergency for the unguarded portions of the southern border.

And, a Space Force.

Will The United States of America ever try to remove their debts?

If not, why not start making some things free?

The American Dream is not dead, Mr. President. It is alive, and We, The People, are aware.

How Strong is America’s Defense? #StateOfEmergency

0

The obvious answer is very strong. Hundreds of billions of dollars is now spent annually on America’s Defense. The United States Army is as strong as ever, and every other branch appears to exist without much flaw. As a matter of fact, one can conduct a bit of research and decipher that often times, too much is spent on the Department of Defense. Whirlwind headlines of Navy coffee mugs costing thousands of dollars can be a prime example of a Nation’s military with a budget that appears to have no end.

So my question is, with a military spread all over the entire world and allies spanning every continent, why has The President declared a State of Emergency?

The U.S. Government was recently Shut down for over 31 days, the longest recorded government shutdown in recorded history. With a military so strong, in a robust and prosperous Capitalist society, a shutdown is now the tail end to what appears to be a declaration of an emerging crisis.

In recent month’s time, there were reports of an invasion along the southern border, an actual cry from the President which has led him to orchestrate a campaign of border defense. His campaign includes most importantly, a 2000 mile long border wall between The U.S. and Mexico. Without rehashing the terrible war of words President Trump has had with others over this wall, it is easy to understand that he was incapable of acquiring the funds necessary to complete his campaign promise of building a massive border wall.

This, only days after a month long Government Shutdown, and after only acquiring 1 billion dollars of the 30+ or so billion dollars needed for his project, The President has now issued a State of Emergency.

How long does this remain in effect? Who does it effect? Are we as weak as he perceives? What is to come?

Perhaps the most important question may be, are we going to be invaded?

What a world of conspiracy. This is no Russian folk tale.

The Resignation of General James Norman Mattis, Secretary of Defense.

0

In a powerful display of opposition to President Trump announcing a complete withdrawal of troops from Syria, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis submitted his letter of resignation. The letter, pictured below, highlights many facets that General Mattis enjoyed while Secretary of Defense, but the letter also plainly States to the President that he does not agree with the decision to withdraw troops from Syria, arguing that the move abandons allies on the battlefield.

Despite the resignation of General Mattis, and what appears to be a bipartisan pushback from both Republicans and Democrats, President Trump remains resilient in his decision to withdraw troops, explaining to the American People that ISIS has been defeated, and that he has been more successful than any President in modern history in defeating ISIS.

Several officials and News outlets have reported that the decision to withdraw troops was not advised by Senior military officials or The Pentagon, and that this is move done largely in part by Donald Trump.

Again, despite pushback from every angle, Trump remains resilient in downsizing the battlefields overseas, with rumors now floating the agenda that The President also intends to withdraw as many as 9,000 troops from Afghanistan as early as January.

General Mattis served four decades in The United States Marine Corps. He ends his career on a high note, putting countrymen and his allies before self. He will officially depart Trump’s Administration February 2019.

Has President Trump Been Compromised?

0

Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying about his involvement with Russia, giving tremendous detail into Trump’s business dealings. Trump consistently refuted the notion that he had any previous deals with anyone in Russia, but revelations from Cohen’s testimony to the FBI proves that he had in fact been in negotiations with Russia about a hotel as early as 2015. The master suite of the hotel would have allegedly been granted to Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes discusses the plausible argument Donald Trump has been compromised.

If these revelations are true, all of which are a part of Robert Mueller’s FBI investigation into Trump’s financial ties with Russia, it would prove in various ways that Donald Trump could be compromised by Russia, and also that information may be withheld from Trump that could significantly damage his reputation.

Perhaps we now know why Donald Trump didn’t want anyone to know he has conducted business in Russia.

Violence in Politics: End It Now.

0

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, when asked by the media if President Donald Trump regrets any of his previous comments where he wishes harm on his opponents, states that The President has been against violence since day one.

Sarah Sanders, that is a lie. The President has in fact been promoting violence. He has insulted all of his political opponents, promoting violent rhetoric and conspiracies along the way. His political hyperbole cannot be discredited, or discharged as the work of a man with little political experience. Praising a politician for body slamming a reporter. Saying someone with 2nd amendment rights might shoot Hillary Clinton. Repeatedly saying you’ve wanted to punch someone in the head at your rallies. Calling the media the enemy of The United States. Claiming you could shoot someone in the middle of 5th avenue, New York and get away with you.

You have been promoting violence all along. Mr. President, please stop.

There are too many key issues plaguing The United States at this moment, and there is no room for violence of any form in politics. American citizens are currently holding out hope for change in their respective lives and communities, and many of them know that change can only come by supporting elected officials. That is why it is too important for we, the American people, to not have to deal with what has recently transpired.

Several pipe bombs have been sent to top Democrats. A blatant act of terrorism, it may perhaps be safe to conclude before any evidence is found of the perpetrators that this was in fact politically motivated. Whether or not this is domestic terrorism, we can at least infer that the motives behind these potential attacks were fueled by the aggressive and violent rhetoric of President Donald Trump, and societal members of the Republican Party.

Politics is amazing, and unique, in the fact that The Republican Party and The Democratic Party, and any other Party in the United States, has the right to stand up for the rights of American citizens and be the voice where sometimes voices cannot be heard. But politicians have to be careful how they use their power. The President has inadvertently been invoking violence with his rhetoric, and he has too much pride to force himself into guilt or change. To those that can amend there ways, do so. Do not stoop to the promotion of violence, for this is America’s history and future at stake.

Promote prosperity. End it now.
