Before I begin my article, I want to pay homage to Paul Walter who publishes NewsWithViews.com. Thank you, Paul, for your undying efforts to make sure Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States. Paul made sure that millions of readers got access to the truth about Trump during the many months the mainstream media was portraying him as an arrogant idiot who the public would not take seriously and who would never be elected to office.
I also want to thank Kelleigh Nelson for her many and better than excellent researched articles about Trump and those who opposed him. You are the best, Kelleigh, and I thank you for all you did to make Donald J. Trump our President-Elect. I realize you were just presenting the facts, Ma’am, but the level of depth of your research was very difficult and time consuming.
The only wish Paul and Kelleigh have for all their relentless hard work and the love they have for Donald Trump is to get 4 tickets for Trump's inauguration. If anyone reading this can help please contact me or them.
And I want to thank every reader of NewsWithViews.com seeking the facts involved in the fight for the Oval Office and who voted their conscience. All of us listened to atrocious lies about Mr. Trump and heard the mainstream media serve up Mrs. Clinton as if she were a prime rib dinner rather than a woman who liberal William Safire of the New York Times once called a congenital liar who is guilty of numerous crimes against the American people (though it is doubtful she will ever pay for them). Thank you for taking the information you got from NewsWithViews public, sending it to friends so others could learn from it. Thank you for voting.
And now, some thoughts about President-Elect Trump’s victory and the street violence that has followed it. I want you to understand why the violence is occurring because it has little to do with Donald J. Trump personally, and a great deal to do with liberal fears.
In the beginning, there was nothing (and America was very close to becoming nothing – a piece of land on the map with no borders that define us as a nation) when patriots around the nation voted for a non-establishment guy who may, if he does things right, buy the nation time to correct the problems created by administrations in power since 1989.
Anyone who thinks America’s socio-economic problems of 30 years can be turned around in 100 days (or even four years) has no concept about the depth of corrupted crony capitalism that has been intentionally fed into the system to prepare for George H.W. Bush’s new world order.
As President-Elect Donald John Trump said in his acceptance speech, “it is not the end... it’s just the beginning.” He is absolutely right! The work is just beginning and it will be intense and it will be hard. Electing President-Elect Trump to office was just step one. It will be followed by steps put in place to return us to constitutional government rather than tyrannical rule... and some of those steps will be painful.
First comes transition from Obama to Trump – and 45 must fill 4,000 jobs between now and January 20, 2017. He now has access to daily intelligence briefings and so will be able to turn on that famous Trump analytic skill and, with the input of experienced advisors, begin to make decisions that keep America safe.
It’s safe to assume that within three months of his inaugural, some foreign nation will attempt to take advantage of the new administration. He must get his Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Treasury (because the attack will likely be against the U.S. dollar), and Joint Chiefs established and informed. They need as much input as possible before the inauguration so he can quickly respond to any and all threats.
We have rioters in the streets of major cities who can’t effectively deal with the fact that their candidate lost the election. We need a strong Attorney General who will stop Executive Office and Department of Justice support for sanctuary cities and a Congress that will cut off funding for them. A return to the Rule of Law is critical to a good start for President-Elect Trump.
We have large portions of three generations of people – those under 60 years of age – who have been raised to think crony capitalism is capitalism which it is not. Not even close. Find out what capitalism is here. Those three generations have had their critical thinking skills warped by government indoctrination, a part of the New World Order plot to eliminate our borders and turn our nation into an oligarchy run by elites who consider the rest of us their inferiors who need them to tell us how we can serve them. Most of them didn’t earn their family fortunes, they inherited or stole them.
Who are these people who are so traumatized by the idea of a President Trump that they need counseling, need to cry, need to strike out at those of us who disagree with their views of socialist paradise? They are largely the non-productive and public school/college-indoctrinated people who I term Passive Investors (from my banking days). I wrote a News With Views article in 2009 about the new Civil War that was then on America’s horizon: The non-productive versus the productive. I believe that is precisely where we are. It may be impolite to say “I was right,” but I was right! Why was no one listening?
To understand the mindset of liberal progressives and why they are having such a difficult time accepting reality, read the NewsWithViews articles I wrote (here and here) about passive and active investors. Passives are liberals and actives are conservatives.
Liberal Passives are security-driven people who are motivated by fear. Conservatives tend to joke that liberalism is a disease. Actually, depending on how deep the need for security, how great the need for power to protect them from their fears, how pronounced their fear motivation... it can become phobic or psychopathic. We've seen that in the streets of major American cities the last few nights.
This election placed an Active Conservative in the most powerful position in the world. It has literally caused liberals/progressives/socialists to fear not being able to live in a world wherein conservative values of individuality (rather than group think), liberty that is self-responsible (rather than group determined), and the junking of political correctness (which is the only world in which these groupies function well) is very real – and yes, it is an illness. How long it will last and how severe the demonstrations and protests are depend on how large the needs discussed in the preceding paragraph are.
How do fearful people behave? Watching the anti-Trump protests continue night after night should give you some insight. This group of people is power-motivated (because power can protect them from the things they fear). When the power that protects them is removed, they feel very vulnerable. When a fearful person feels vulnerable they often resort to violence. It’s one reason liberal progressives are so easily motivated to join groups that have violent intent. This will continue in various ways until something they fear more than their loss of power is in place: Being held responsible for their behavior.
It is very important for conservatives to understand this is not just a momentary objection to a political candidate. The socialist mentality has been injected worldwide and its roots run very deep in the psyche of Passives. It’s not an American phenomenon. President-Elect Trump has so far played the hand he has been dealt perfectly. He has been behaving in a way that should, over time, reduce the fear that is causing the violent behavior. It will reduce it – but it won’t eliminate it. The thing causing the fear and resultant behavior is deeply rooted.
How many times have you asked yourself why liberals are so inclined to socialism and are so opposed to capitalism? Here’s your answer: Socialism promises to remove risk from the lives of those willing to give up their freedom to serve the needs of the elite.
Under socialism, government takes care of everything. It will determine your career, reward you when you serve them well by making it possible for your kids to get into good universities, withhold access to your kids to those same good universities if you say something they don’t like, and will decide when your life has served its purpose and it’s time for you to die (the lack of individual worth by comparison to the common good of society). They are anti-individual and pro-group.
Liberals are risk averse people and capitalism is a risk management system. Conservatives who are more concerned with controlling their own destinies have no problem with risk management. They deal with it well. Our Founders were individualist risk managers. Non-risk managers do not take on the largest and best-trained military in the world, the English, at the time of our Revolution. They understood that people either manage their own risks in life, or government will do it for you in return for your freedom.
President-Elect Donald J. Trump faces numerous challenges and we need to pray for his safety and that of his family.
Lord, please let us return to the moral nation you helped our Founders build. If we are to become great again, it will be with Your help and through the grace You have always bestowed on this nation. You told us to respect our leaders and to pray for them... but You also told us that God’s laws must be followed should our leaders stray from them. We have strayed, Lord. Please help us find our way back to You.
COMING IN PART II: Why pollsters and campaign managers were wrong: They do not understand how to get non-traditional, non-establishment candidates elected. Also a word or two about how women were saved the embarrassment of having a congenital liar whose track record of dishonesty for many years would have prevented a real woman from being elected in future years.
