Dark Night of the Soul for America

The phrase “The Dark Night of the Soul” originally came from 16th century Spanish poet and mystic St. John of the Cross.

These words capture and convey the spiritual experience that a soul undergoes as it strives to reach union with the Almighty, despite temporal discouragements.

The now-popularized expression has been referenced over the years by a diverse array of authors and artists, including poet T.S. Eliot, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, and singer-songwriter Van Morrison.

There is an additional application of the phrase that has been adopted by the entertainment industry.

In his best-selling book, titled “Save the Cat,” author Blake Snyder divides the pacing of storytelling into structural components that take place over time. Snyder even pinpoints the specific page of a film script at which the appropriate dark night moment should take form.

The cinematic moment should materialize at the end of the second act of a story, the point of desperation at which the protagonist is in a hopeless situation and all appears to be lost.

I contend that at this present moment in time—those of us who have held fast to our founding documents, to the virtues and ideals that are embodied therein, and to the knowledge that we are entrusted with the responsibility to preserve for our families, friends, and loved ones the treasure we have been given in our beloved America—we are at the end of the second act of one of the most intense dramas our country has ever endured, and the stakes are monumental.

In the scenes that preceded this critical point, powerful interests worked in unison to engage in a wide variety of illicit activities, both in the lead-up to Election Day and in the days that would follow.

The chairman and CEO of a Big Tech company donated hundreds of millions of dollars to a non-profit organization, which represented that the money was intended to assist with the voter turnout effort.

However, activities of the entity appear to have favored the encouragement of the voter turnout of one party in particular, the Democratic Party. This entity appears to have also encroached upon the constitutional powers of state lawmakers, and may have used money to manipulate certain aspects of state elections, including the counting of ballots.

Additionally, some state officials appear to have changed ballot security rules on their own, discarding the notion that the power to do so is in the specific purview of state legislatures.

When it came to the content that was published and/or distributed in the lead-up to the election, Big Media and Big Tech at times distorted and at other times lied outright. Highly relevant news stories were never investigated, were completely ignored, or were censored altogether.

The polling industry, too, disgraced itself with exaggerated polls that were specifically designed to suppress voter participation of those with opposing ideas.

In essence, half the population is now being told to reject what they have seen with their own eyes, heard with their own ears, and know in their own hearts; that on election night, the vote counting of several states was halted, with no explanation given. When it once again commenced, suddenly there were massive quantities of votes that came in for the Democratic presidential candidate.

In congressional, state, and local races, voters turned away from Democratic candidates, yet they still managed to vote for the Democratic candidate for president.

In record numbers, African-Americans chose the Republican candidate. Nevertheless, the Democratic presidential candidate somehow received 11 million more votes than former President Barack Obama did in 2008.

Then there were observers who were not allowed to watch mail-in ballots being opened and counted. There were those who were dead but who came back to life to vote. And there were those who were outside their various jurisdictions but who were allowed to cast ballots anyway.

While feebly calling for unity, the Democratic candidate also established a sham entity that his campaign called “the office of president-elect.” And the same people who spread false information about Russia-gate and Ukraine-gate are now urging folks to move on, claiming that there is nothing to investigate and that the American people should graciously accept their candidate of choice.

That all of this might make the almost 74 million voters and supporters of President Donald Trump feel less than hopeful is an understatement.

But my admonition is simple. This is not the time to give up or even grow weak. Rather, it is the time to take heart.

In the “Save the Cat” pacing of storytelling, “The Dark Night of the Soul” leads to a conclusion that makes for an epic saga. What follows the lowest of low points is an unexpected breakthrough that enables the protagonist to overcome seemingly impossible odds and secure victory.

I like to think of it as “The Bright Light of the Spirit.”

The Ultimate Remedy for Countering Presidential Election Fraud

Despite repetitive denials emanating from a multitude of Democrat and media sources, it is clear that there has been unprecedented and widespread voter fraud as it relates to the all-important 2020 presidential election.

Although several lawsuits have been filed and are in the process of being adjudicated, the ultimate antidote for the toxin that has infected our electoral system does not rest in a state or federal judiciary. Instead it rests in the state legislature.

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution contains clear and precise language. It spells out the following:

“Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.”

One key constitutional text in this passage is “…in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.

This wording grants enormous discretionary power to state lawmakers. It specifies that the members of the state legislatures are the ones responsible for making the final decision regarding the persons who will become the appointed members of the electoral college for the respective states.

Not the governor, not election officials, not even the courts, but only members of the state legislatures are to perform this function.

The founders of our nation placed the power to resolve unprecedented problems in a presidential election (much like the ones we now face) in the statehouses.

Of course, the judiciary has its role, as has been exhibited in local races, and most notably in the 2000 presidential election, when the Supreme Court intervened in Bush v. Gore.However, the Constitution explicitly places the duty and capacity to determine the makeup of the Electoral College in the hands of the members of the legislatures of the respective states.

Interestingly, in Bush v. Gore the Supreme Court made reference to this unique constitutional role possessed by state legislatures, when the Court underscored the ability of state legislatures to “take back the power to appoint electors.”

When the reported results of an election are clouded with suspicion and tainted by credible evidence that fraud has occurred, the Constitution points to the state legislature, and its duty to take action. The body is charged to use its constitutional powers to rectify the sullied election results, i.e., to fix things, when necessary.

At the present time, the GOP is in control of both legislative chambers of the currently contested battleground states: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, and Georgia.

As evidence continues to mount, indicating that numerous forms of malfeasance took place prior to and during the tabulation of ballots, the state legislators are the bodies empowered to perform a solemn constitutional duty. As part of this duty, the bodies are positioned to cleanse the results of fraud.

At the same time, statehouses are empowered to mitigate and/or eliminate the disenfranchisement of legitimate voters, which may have occurred if and when illegitimate ballots were improperly counted.

Notwithstanding any determination by the judiciary (which includes the Supreme Court), a Republican legislature of a state that has experienced issues relating to fraud has the authority to select a slate of delegates to the Electoral College; a slate that is committed to vote for President Donald Trump.

It is in this way that the electoral vote count can essentially be purged of illicit ballots.

Presentations of evidence of fraud and irregularities could presumably be submitted to the legislatures of the states to prove that the elections in the respective states were corrupted.

Decisions of the state legislatures to cleanse the vote counts of illicit ballots and appoint appropriate electors would survive any and all legal challenges, because the explicit text of the Constitution is so compelling.

Dick Morris, who served as an advisor to former President Bill Clinton, told Newsmax TV host Grant Stinchfield, “We have to move the fight from the executive branch of the states to the legislative branch of the states. The U.S. Constitution does not say that the states shall decide the procedure for electoral votes. They [words of the Constitution] say the legislature should decide. Not the governors, the legislature.”

Morris specifically referred to “the evidence of missing votes, suddenly discovered votes, unexplained delays, not granting access to poll watchers,” items that indicate “corruption of this process.”

In a recent appearance on Fox News, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis urged legislators to use their constitutional abilities.

Gov. DeSantis pointed out that the Constitution requires electors to be chosen by legislators that determine the procedural framework for that process. The governor also indicated that if the law is being ignored, then the legislature “can provide remedies as well.”

The Constitution sets the first Monday after the second Wednesday of December as a deadline for the state legislatures to act. This year the date falls on December 14.

The Constitution also provides that, if for some reason the Electoral College is unable to elect a president by December 14, the U.S. House of Representatives is the governmental body responsible for determining who will be the next president and vice president; this according to the 12th Amendment.

In this situation, the manner in which the vote is to be taken is uniquely mandated. Individual members of the House do not cast votes as individuals. Rather, votes would be taken by state delegations, making it effectively one vote per state.

As it currently stands with the present makeup of the House, the majority of delegations are in the hands of the GOP. If such a vote were to take place, it is highly likely that it would result in a win for the Republican presidential candidate.

President Trump’s supporters need to keep the faith—in the Constitution, in the Truth, and in him.

Election Irregularities Call for a Full Investigation

The establishment media are ignoring, suppressing, and even dismissing altogether an enormous amount of evidence that indicates significant voting irregularities took place during the 2020 presidential election. Additionally, there are serious inferences of fraud as it relates to the counting of ballots.

Using the coronavirus as justification, prior to the election the Democratic Party pushed through a voting procedure that had never been used before. This resulted in an unparalleled number of mail-in, absentee, and provisional ballots pouring into the system.

This would not be the only segment of the voting process that would earn the label of “unprecedented.” Last minute rule changes, software glitches, count halts, ballot dumps, and statistical anomalies made their ugly appearances this election-go-round, all to the benefit of one Party only.

Make no mistake, though, this election is in no way over. In football terminology, it may be that we are still in the third quarter, with lots of big plays to come.

The mounting evidence that continues to surface presents a pressing need for a complete investigation and judicially supervised remedies, including recounts, audits, and even election do-overs.

The term used in the law of negligence, res ipsa loquitur, has a counterpart appropriateness here. The Latin term, which means “the thing speaks for itself,” stems from its use in Roman trials. In tort law, it provides elements of a cause of action, when a tortious injury would not ordinarily occur without negligence.

In the case of this election, there are results that would not ordinarily occur without fraud.

In Democrat-run swing states, where on election eve President Donald Trump was leading over Democratic challenger Joe Biden, ballot counting inexplicably came to a screeching halt.

A few hours later, massive amounts of ballots suddenly appeared. Few, if any of the votes, went in President Trump’s favor.

The Numbers Story

In Michigan, Democratic presidential candidate Biden at one point received a block of 138,000 votes. Nearly all of the votes added to his tally. This is a statistical impossibility.

Data scientists have noticed other mathematical patterns that raise serious inferences of election fraud. Benford’s law is a forensic tool that is commonly used to detect potential fraud in accounting and vote tallies.

The Benford principle dictates a specific distribution of digits in data to determine whether such data are random and natural.

The digits of the vote counts are expected to follow an exponential distribution across the integers. When the analysis of numerical data samples indicates that the samples are not actually random, i.e., a numerical violation of Benford’s law, an inference of fraud is produced and has been used to detect fraud in elections. Numerical data that deviate from Benford’s law have been admitted in court as evidence of vote fraud.

Informal analyses of Trump’s numbers show no violations of Benford’s law; however, candidate Biden’s numbers do show violations that indicate fraud.

There are other ways that numbers become indicators of election fraud, including the vote total differential between candidate Biden and other down ballot candidates as well as precincts that have more than 100% voter participation.

As of this writing, the GOP has not lost a single seat in the House. Instead the Party has picked up several new House members and added at least three state legislatures, a result that appears highly inconsistent with a win by candidate Biden, who experienced record low enthusiasm across his entire campaign.

In Pennsylvania, due to a lack of signature verification, the rate of rejected mail-in ballots is almost 30 times lower this year than it was in the 2016 presidential election; this is yet another statistical anomaly.

During the inevitable coming litigation, based on claims of irregular voting and election fraud, data from Democrat-controlled swing states will be analyzed, and statistical anomalies and violations of Benford’s law will be presented to the courts.

The Software Story

Dominion Democracy Suite software was used for tabulating ballots in Michigan’s Antrim County. A reported “glitch” caused at least 6,000 Republican votes to be counted as Democrat votes, according to Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox.

When corrected, the miscalculation, which was first reported by a county clerk, changed the results of the county from candidate Biden to President Trump.

Forty-seven other counties in Michigan may also have suffered a similar glitch, due to the same software. If each of these counties, when corrected, were to have a switch-over of 6,000 votes, it would result in President Trump receiving 282,000 additional votes, likely changing Michigan’s election results.

Dominion Democracy Suite software is reportedly used in 30 other states, including all of the other swing states.

The Election Law Story

Election rules in the United States are made by the state legislature. In order to be counted, election law in Pennsylvania requires ballots to be received by November 3.

The state legislature in Pennsylvania turned down the governor’s request to allow ballots to be counted that were postmarked by November 3, but not actually received until November 5.

The governor then went to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to obtain a court order to continue counting the ballots. It was an illicit move and merely a way in which to circumvent the state legislature. The Democrat-controlled court issued the illegal order, one that violated state law.

Although the precincts have been counting late-received ballots, the U.S. Supreme Court via Justice Samuel Alito issued Pennsylvania an order to segregate the late-received votes and remove them from the counted totals.

The validity of late-received votes will almost inevitably end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. If the ballots received after November 3 are thrown out for violating Pennsylvania election law, the result of the election in that state will likely change.

The Coming Story

President Trump and the GOP have obtained sworn witness testimony that alleges poll watchers were denied entry to the polls, election officials took actions that were not authorized by the state legislature, a post office manager ordered postal workers to back-date ballots to November 3, and election workers illegally created new voter files; all this, in order to create more ballots for candidate Biden.

These claims must be fully examined and litigated. Getting to the bottom of all of it is not just about the 2020 election. Rather, it is about all future elections in America and whether representative democracy survives.

Symbols Define the 2020 Election

Each human being has an innate need to communicate with others. He or she also has a deep yearning to understand what another is attempting to convey, and to be validated on a personal level that he or she has been understood.

Communication, of course, frequently involves language. But the communication companion to language is the symbol, which may take the form of a language-based sign, pictorial sign, hand or facial gesture, clothing, shoes, an accessory such as a hat, jewelry such as a necklace, earring, or bracelet, etc.

In analytical psychology, pioneer Sigmund Freud actually used symbolic images to explain the meaning of dreams, while his colleague, Carl Jung, theorized that certain universal symbols called “archetypes” derive from the collective unconscious and alter conscious behavior.

Archetype symbols are a means of sending shorthand messages to the subconscious and conscious minds of human beings.

A fairly new multidisciplinary field called “semiotics” conducts research and analyzes the manner in which meaning is produced from signs and symbols.

How does all of this relate to the 2020 presidential election?

Well, in politics, meaning is generally communicated through words. However, symbols have become increasingly significant over time, especially with the advent of multiple social media platforms and limitless visual imagery via video.

Persuasion is at the heart of any political campaign, and communication through symbols is one of the most powerful methods of persuasion a candidate can access.

As it pertains to politics, the meaning of a message has a way of effortlessly emerging when presented through recognizable symbolic representations.

Needless to say, symbolic communication played a major part in the 2020 presidential campaign for both major parties, and particularly for the presidential candidates themselves.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden consistently appeared in public wearing – the mask.

The mask became a dual symbol, one of personal responsibility in avoiding the contracting of COVID-19, and one of a supposed caring attitude with regard to the spreading of the virus to others

One main Biden campaign theme was the supposed mishandling of the pandemic, which he attempted to use to try and reframe the president’s successful actions against the virus.

When the former vice president made live campaign appearances or appeared in photographs and/or on videotape, he made sure that he had donned a mask, or at least had one hanging from his ear. This was meant to convey his seriousness with regard to COVID-19, which he no doubt hoped would translate into folks thinking he could do a better job of managing it.

Interestingly, for many Americans the mask had the opposite effect and was perceived as a symbol of government control and loss of freedom.

President Donald Trump had a symbol that across the years rose to legendary heights – the red MAGA hat. It was hardly the only symbol that the president brought to the campaign stop stage. His speeches and events included an array of time-honored national symbols, which for many evoked a deep heartfelt love of country.

Sadly, for others the symbols generated anger to the point that some formed mobs, which took to the streets to burn flags, deface federal and state buildings, and tear down statues. Their intense hatred for the meaning behind the symbols, and for the American people at large, was laid bare.

Symbols are a precious part of the heritage of America, and they have meanings that bind us together in mind, heart, and soul. These symbols are ones that are instantly recognizable.

Here are some examples:

–The Liberty Bell, a bold symbol of independence.

–The Statue of Liberty, with a broken chain draped at her feet, representing an ever-emerging liberty; a torch in one hand, symbolizing enlightenment; a tablet in the other hand, with the date of the Declaration of Independence inscribed upon it, symbolizing the rule of law.

–The Bald Eagle, America’s national bird, representing the soaring spirit of her people, who are able to accomplish anything their hearts desire.

–The Bison, America’s national mammal, representing a proud and confident presence.

–The Oak, America’s national tree, representing a solidness and strength.

–The Rose, America’s official flower, representing a prayer enveloped with the fragrance of idealism.

–The motto “In God We Trust,” representing an all-encompassing faith in something more enduring than our mortal selves.

–The Flag, America’s official emblem, representing the qualities of justice, courage, and self-sacrifice, a tribute to those past and present, who give all, so all can live free.

May God bless America, now and forever.

President Trump’s Success Boosts African-American Support

There are some intriguing indicators that suggest President Donald Trump is going to do better than expected in garnering votes in the upcoming election from the African-American community.

Emerging signs include the president’s demonstrable track record of policies that have benefited the Black community, as well as the record high approval number that he now experiences with African-American voters.

But perhaps the most interesting indicator of all is the large number of prominent public figures who now go by the title of “formerly known as Democrat.”

The Democratic Party has typically relied upon a strong showing of support over the years from African-American voters. However, as the public in general and the Democratic Party in particular have learned, when you’re talking about President Trump there is very little that can be characterized as “typical.”

In the 2016 presidential election, CNN exit polls (https://www.cnn.com/election/2016/results/exit-polls) indicated that then-candidate Trump received 8 percent of the African-American vote and 13 percent of Black male voters. The latter percentage was a historically high number for Republicans.

What has surprised many in recent days is the fact that some well known hip-hop artists made headlines in their Trump-supportive opining, and for some, in their tacit and/or explicit endorsements. This has obviously caused concern on the part of certain Democrat strategists and candidates alike.

Recently, rapper 50 Cent gave a social media endorsement to President Trump, expressing his wariness with the stratospheric tax rates that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan portends. Predictably, the artist was deluged with social media haters who were intent on hurling insults.

Following the backlash, 50 Cent doubled-down via his Instagram account, sharing a Fox News video about his Trump endorsement and attaching a pithy caption: “I don’t want to be 20 cent,” adding, “62% [income tax rate] is a very very bad idea.”

Senior advisor to the Trump campaign Katrina Pearson used her Twitter account to reveal that actor and hip-hopper Ice Cube was actively helping the Trump administration to connect with the African-American electorate. Cube’s detractors attempted to smear him for being a Trump supporter, and the cancel culture launched an attack.

Undeterred, the rapper has confirmed his assistance to the president, but he has yet to endorse him outright.

Cube is advising President Trump on an administration initiative titled “The Platinum Plan,” which will reach out to African-American communities in an effort to improve overall economic circumstances using the Trump administration’s innovative “Opportunity Zones.”

Another hip-hopper, Waka Flocka Flame, was recently blasted by social media trolls for the comments he expressed about President Trump being a better president than the previous occupant of the White House, former President Barack Obama.

Joining in with more hip-hop Trump energy are BlocBoy JB, Fivio Foreign, and longtime Trump ally Kanye West.

Jason Whitlock, sportswriter for Outkick, is an African-American Trump convert himself, who has observed the rap community’s growing esteem for Trump and has a grasp on the phenomenon.

Whitlock, who also recently conducted a focused interview with the president, told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, “I think there’s some clear momentum for President Trump, particularly I think with black men. I think we’ve been carrying on a facade for three and a half years as black men that somehow we can’t relate to Donald Trump, that we didn’t celebrate him in hip hop music for decades, that he wasn’t friends with countless black athletes, entertainers.”

The truth is the president’s name has been part of the hip-hop repertoire since the genre’s inception. The rap world has long-embraced success and all of its attendant parts.

Across his lifetime, President Trump has been the quintessential symbol of success, and as destiny has made manifest, this has never been more true.

In a track that emerged back in 1989, rapper Ice-T’s collaborator Donald D shouted out, “Yo Ice, I did a concert at the White House. And after that, me and Donald Trump hung out!”

Consequently, many hip-hop artists placed the Trump name within their lyrics. Rapper Rick Ross had the most Trump mentions, nine songs between 2008 and 2015. Hip-hopper Nas recorded seven songs with Trump mentions between 1996 and 2012. Artists Migos and Young Thug had six each, and Lil Wayne and Raekwon featured five Trump references.

After the rise to hit status of NBC’s “The Apprentice” in 2004, President Trump’s brand as sensei of success was cemented into the cultural fabric. The then-New York tycoon appeared in tunes by hip-hoppers Chingy, Mystikal, Lil’ Kim, Diddy, and Young Jeezy.

Enduring Trump supporter West, who is ostensibly running for president and is reportedly on ballots in some states as vice president, appears to remain a Trump backer.

In an April interview with GQ magazine, West said, “It’s unclear if Ye’s vote will still be for Trump as he is running for president as well. In any event, perhaps we’ll find out on Election Day.”

Whitlock wrote, “Kanye said he and President Trump shared ‘dragon energy,’ natural instincts for leadership.”

West’s ‘dragon energy’ characterization, in my opinion, refers to a special kind of steadfastness that it takes to make any desired objective a success.

Those who impartially examine the track record of the Trump administration can’t help but notice a string of laudable successes, including energy independence, de-regulation, defeat of ISIS, NATO finance reform, improved trade deals, record low unemployment, record wage growth, and progress towards peace in the Middle East, just to name a few.

Additionally, a growing segment of African-Americans, along with many of the artists in the hip-hop world, also know that they have a powerful advocate in the White House. Employment, school choice, university funding, prison reform, and pro-life policies have made an impression on leaders in the Black community.

Social media legend and “Blexit” originator Candace Owens, NFL legend Herschel Walker, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell, and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington, all former Democrats, have become vocal supporters of the Trump presidency and of his re-election campaign.

As President Trump said at the recent second presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee, “Success is going to bring us together.” 

The truth is it already has.

The Role of Projection in Democrat Politics

Back in the 19th century, famed Austrian neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud identified a psychological defense mechanism in human beings that he termed “projection.”

Freud’s concept of projection encompasses the notion that in order to avoid facing uncomfortable feelings about themselves, individuals will impose the same negative characteristics upon another person.

In my assessment, which results from my academic coursework, professional background, and ethics studies, there is another kind of projection that exists, which takes place within the moral realm of human consciousness, one that I term “moral projection.”

Moral projection occurs when an individual experiences feelings of guilt over acts that he or she has committed or omitted. This individual may subsequently find the uncomfortable feelings difficult to confront and/or manage. The conduct, or lack thereof, which evoked the feelings of guilt, also frequently becomes very difficult for an individual to own.

Using the defense mechanism concept, an individual may assign to another individual or group the same attitude and behavior that initially generated his or her own attendant guilt.

In other words, take your blame and pin it on another.

Moral projection has been used extensively by Democrats in their ongoing war against anyone who would get in the way of their agenda du jour. It continues to be wielded as one of their main political and propaganda weapons.

The idea that the concepts of good and evil are mere opinions, which have an elasticity in application that is dependent upon a situation, is often referred to as “moral relativism.”

The infiltration of conceptual moral relativism into our schools has degraded the consciences of generations of students at every educational level.

Simultaneously, it tilled the soil of young minds into fertile fields that were susceptible to the planting of left-wing doctrine. This was one of the ways in which the Judeo-Christian principles upon which our American Republic depends were supplanted.

A significant portion of young people who were infected with the poisonous weeds of moral relativism now endorse the ideas and actions of hate-based radical organizations and violent anti-American groups.

Saul Alinsky, an icon of liberals and leftist extremists, once wrote, “To say that corrupt means corrupt the ends is to believe in the immaculate conception of ends and principles. The real arena is corrupt and bloody. Life is a corrupting process from the time a child learns to play his mother off against his father in the politics of when to go to bed; he who fears corruption fears life.”

The resultant loss of a shared moral sense has enabled and even encouraged the use of political tactics that are devoid of conscience. Moral projection is one of the most blatant.

It is a horrible experience to be accused. For those who adhere to an ethical code, it is what keeps many in check from too freely accusing others.

Here are but a few examples of the moral projection arrows that the Democrats have recently pulled from their quiver and shot at adversaries:

-In order to deflect from the fact that the Democrats and their media allies have for months enabled violence in cities across the country, they falsely claim that the violence was caused by, as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recently said, “white supremacist groups menacing our communities.”

-In order to distract from candidate Biden’s numerous mental lapses, Democrats publicly accused President Donald Trump of having mental focus issues following his medical treatment for Covid 19.

-Democrats and the complicit media are fomenting fears over whether President Trump will accept the results of the upcoming election, while former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton publicly advises Biden not to do so “under any circumstances” and the campaign hires hundreds of lawyers to go to court to contest election results.

I am not sure where the Democrats and their media cohorts can go to get their consciences back. But I do know where the American people can go to get their country back.

‘Never-Trumper’ Means ‘Always-Sellout’

Billy Crystal and Bill Kristol

The term “sellout” can be used to describe someone who is willing to trade his or her deep personal convictions in exchange for some momentary fame or short-lived gain.

It is also a word that can aptly apply to the “never-Trumpers” of today’s politically fractured society; i.e., those who steadfastly maintain a hate-filled mindset and who indulge in retaliatory thoughts and behavior.

Over the course of his first term in office, President Donald Trump laid down a clear track record of conservatism in the face of untold liberal pressure.

Unmatched in his efforts to rectify years of “progressive” wrongs, he succeeded in transforming the judiciary, de-regulating the economy, reforming national trade policies, and reducing tax burdens on working class folks.

He did all this in the midst of a cadre of so-called conservative Republicans, which grew to become nothing short of a heavily greased and well-funded political machine.

One recent ad campaign is as instructive as it is disturbing.

The advertisement video features the former editor of the now-defunct Weekly Standard magazine Bill Kristol as well as the Hollywood actor and celebrity comic Billy Crystal.

The attempted gag has the two individuals of differing backgrounds and similar names uniting in an effort to persuade Jewish voters to throw their support behind the current Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Directed by Rob Reiner and written by Phil Rosenthal, the ad was produced for a group called the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) in partnership with a super PAC called Jews Defending American Values.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” was the select venue for its debut airing.

It turns out that the JDCA is a left-leaning front group, which was launched in August 2017 as part of the “resistance” movement that was working against the administration of President Trump.

The group’s launch event was attended by an interesting line-up of prominent Democrat officeholders, which included future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

More than twenty elected Democrat politicians chose to take to the podium to speak at the event.

Following a previous ad campaign, which was initiated by the JDCA and included Nazi imagery, criticism poured in from several Jewish organizations such as the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Republican Jewish Coalition, the American Jewish Committee, and the Anti-Defamation League.

Kristol, who in the new ad self-identifies as a “Republican” and a “conservative,” is the quintessential never-Trumper. He has worked non-stop with Democrats to attack and undermine President Trump.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson notes that for quite a long time Kristol and his never-Trumper buddies have been “advocating for open borders, and nation-building in countries whose populations hate us…”

In addition, Carlson points out that the never-Trumpers have pushed “trade deals that eliminated jobs while enriching their donors, all while implicitly mocking the base for its worries about abortion and gay marriage and the pace of demographic change.”

In my estimation, never-Trumpers are merely your average everyday garden-variety leftists.

What is not your average everyday nugget of info, though, is the fact that never-Trumpers receive their money from uber-wealthy leftists.

The name Pierre Omidyar may not ring a bell, but he is the founder of eBay. He became a billionaire at the young age of 31, with the company’s initial public offering in 1998.

Omidyar has given more than $200 million to left-wing groups, including the Open Society Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Center for Public Integrity, and the Center for Responsive Politics.

During the Democratic Party presidential primaries in 2008, Omidyar donated to the campaigns of both then-Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Over the course of several years, Omidyar and his wife also donated $200,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and $150,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

As Julie Kelly reported in the Cincinnati Enquirer, another group, Republican Voters Against Trump, is “tied to a nonprofit that has received millions in contributions over the past few years from Pierre Omidyar.”

And Kelly also noted that in 2016 Omidyar donated $100,000 to an entity called the NeverTrump PAC.

Kelly additionally revealed that the Lincoln Project, a prominent never-Trumper organization, received financing from billionaire Democratic donor and leftist Hollywood producer David Geffen, who is a longtime Democratic Party cash source.

During the 2018 mid-terms, never-Trumpers and their ally organizations helped elect far-left radical Democrats to Congress, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., which helped facilitate Pelosi’s rise to House Speaker.

Anyone who does a cursory review of the Biden/Harris candidacy realizes that never-Trumpers have not just sold out their principles, they have sold out the country.
