White House Messaging: “The Picnic”…

For many years a point of agreement amid the common-sense-conservative crowd has centered around how weak and ineffective the historic messaging has been from the GOP.

Traditional values, which bind Americans in common purpose, have been under assault by progressives (more aptly Fabian Socialists) for decades, and little to no push-back was ever mounted by professional political voices.

Hollywood and Madison Avenue, under the control of professional left drove anti-American exceptional messaging, and the various GOP elements seemingly conceded the liberty landscape.  The American brand was diminished as a consequence.

Part of President Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ message is about re-instituting a patriotic value message; and also returning a sense of self-discipline and pride in success.

This type of effective messaging is what the top tier of the professional progressive movement, those who control the strings of the puppets, fear most.

The imagery of joy, fellowship, commonality and decency, is perceived as an ideological threat to decades of societal manipulation by the Fabian-Socialist movement.

Control is a reaction to fear.

Thinking in terms or politics and society – the fear behind modern liberalism is the fear that someone might withhold things (opportunities, money, whatever) from me.  Fear that if you live your life in a way I dislike that it might affect my life.  Fear that if you get the job, there will be nothing left for me. Fear that if you make tons of money, it’s means there’s less money out there for me.

Modern progressives believe in liberal policies as control mechanisms.  A means of trying to create guarantees and safeguards against those circumstances they fear.  Democrats, progressives and the Elizabeth Warren’s try to control the world and people within it to enable or create community comfort and happiness. Which, as we know, is an endless quest.

Trying to control others does nothing in the way of making oneself happy. By extension, voting in this mindset so that government can try to control others will also – shocking – not lead to a happier, more comfortable life.  The repeated failure behind this truth is where blame-casting and the perpetually miserable outlook of modern progressives stems from.

The formation of AntiFA, the latest activist re-branding effort of the Columbia University Fabian-Socialists, and the false messaging within their activism, is directly targeted as a strategy to stop the rise of common decency and national patriotism.

Heck, in a larger context, the severity of those miserable fellow travelers within the Frankfurt School mindset is evidenced within the recent rise of hatred, vitriol, vulgarity and outright abhorrent political violence.

Fortunately, the professional left is being confronted (for the first time in decades) by a U.S. presidency that’s willing to fight back just as hard, warts n’ all.  Joined and supported by an engaged American electorate fed up with the left-wing nonsense.  It is an interesting and inspiring dynamic to watch the light overwhelming the darkness.

President Trump is seemingly one man yet he consistently has his opposition surrounded; because President Trump has you, lots of you; and this visible reality is only possible because President Trump’s core message is truth.

As awkward, weird, bumbling and rag-tagged as it is, at the essential core the MAGA message is purely a message of truth brought to the surface by the most unlikely of people Donald J Trump.

There’s a spirit of genuine decency and authenticity much bigger than the flawed and entirely human vessel delivering the positive outcomes.  It is really neat, and at the same time profoundly American.

Additionally, and specifically because of the Trump movement’s common sense platform and the unashamed love of country, Generation Z is the first generation in many who are being exposed to unashamed patriotism.

There are multiple examples everywhere showing positive results if you look closely.

The examples surface like barely visible sprouts from well-placed seeds.

We would be well advised to care tenderly for these sprouts, cherish and protect them.

    Yes for decades we thought we were all alone in thinking that these leftists were crazy.We were silenced by political correctness. We were all muzzled. Then a funny thing happened with the internet and Obama being elected. He made lots of us wake up – I certainly was asleep before he came along. Thank you Obama!

    I had a vague sense that things were just not right before he came along but never really thought too much about it and just went along to get along as they say and was busy with my own life as we all were. So he made lots of us wake up and then we started all communicating with each other through social media et al and we realized we weren’t alone.

    Lots of people felt the same way we did and this gave us the courage to start not being politically correct and to learn about what these awful leftists have been getting away with and doing to our country. Then for years we lacked a leader and viola! Along came Trump and the rest as they say is history – in the making.

    The specific reason that I woke up because of Obama was the way he rammed health care through clearly against the will of the people. I had never seen a potus act like that in my entire life and it horrified me. Then I started wondering just who the heck is this guy and started researching him and off down the rabbit hole I went.

    I had so much to learn about so many things. I would stay up all hours of the night reading and reading and reading – I would literally sit there crying and shaking because of everything I was learning and what had happened to this country. It’s been a long miserable 8 years and I feel happier than I have felt in years with Trump’s election.

    I know we still have a long road ahead of us and victory is not guaranteed but I sure do feel so much better personally.

      • The progs really screwed the pooch when they jumped the shark putting O in front of H. … had Hillary been elected in 2008 Obama could have been elected in 2016 and WOULD have likely been elected. The problem was that once you use the racism label (against people who were not opposed because of race) in order to quash opposition to your ideological agenda… you can not go (backwards) to labeling the ones who elected a black man as misogynists… it doesn’t logically compute and fails under scrutiny.
        The labels are quite effective used in the opposite order. Being labeled a misogynist does not carry the same stigma and has been thrown around so often it’s use has been severely limited… plus if calling someone a misogynist it would be best to ensure the person to whom the label is directed is actually somewhat misogynistic and has a verifiable history of such.

        Had Hillary been elected in 08 then the racist label would still be effective in shutting down opposition.

    • Rhcrest, your story is almost exactly my story. Learning who the republican really were was a shocking experience. I felt so betrayed.

      Sundance, I’m so grateful you bring up the Fabian socialist. This is like a hidden code, a secret group, who have vowed to heat and burn up the west (they really want the whole world) and then shape and create it into their own liking of a communist utopia.

      They have been extremely successful. Obama pushed to hard and boom, the electorate started noticing what the heck was going on. We seen our city’s decay, our children struggle to get good jobs, our taxes rise and our income fall. The world’s best Healthcare system was destroyed, never to be returned.

      Now, we are angry, cold anger, that these grifters, schemers and treasonist congress people, POTUS and SCOTUS have driving the country into the ground and hard. Only a miracle could save us, and we all knew better then trying one more time to believe our politicians.

        Yes understanding that the Republicans were almost as bad as the Dems was another horrifying thing to learn. I have become used to the things that used to make me shake and cry. One of the main things that made me react like that was indeed learning who Barry S really was and feeling just outright terror that he was in the White House. I couldn’t believe it. When he first got elected I was still asleep but I had a really bad vibe about him without knowing anything about him. I just shrugged it off and didn’t want to get upset. I also ignored all the ruckus that had developed about obamacare. Then one day my husband sent me one of those emails that had been going around about Obamacare and it literally made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I could ignore it no longer and off I went. Now with Trump I do feel so much better. Even then it’s still taken a while to feel better since the election strangely.The awful way I felt was so deep that just him getting elected wasn’t going to make it disappear. What makes it disappear little by little is things like him pulling out of the Paris Accord, not celebrating Ramadan at the White House etc. I was in so much pain for so long that I was almost afraid to start feeling better because I didn’t want to be disappointed and feel betrayed again. It’s a long process. Yes I thank God every day for Donald Trump. There is absolutely no one who could have done what he did and what he is doing. I honestly believe he is potus through Divine Intervention

      For the first time since I’ve followed this great forum, I am writing a comment of my own to thank you for expressing what many of us have felt over the years. In my case, I had Obama pegged from the beginning for the simple reason that, as a political refugee from a communist country (Cuba), I had seen and heard the same slogans (Hope and Change), the same exhortations (Forward!), the same appeal to “spreading the wealth”, the same attempt at dividing us by exploiting the social and economic disparities that exist in all societies, and all wrapped up in the soaring rhetoric of “Fairness”. In short, I saw Obama for what he was, a dyed in the wool Marxist of the third world persuasion, meaning that his brand of Marxism was (is) race-based and a hatred of what Marxists of his type define as “imperialism”, but really meaning western values of which individual freedom, free enterprise and private property are key components. In my opinion, Obama continues to be extremely dangerous because he is able to disguise his ideology in the sort of rhetoric that bamboozles influential leaders in our country, just as Fidel Castro used his rhetorical powers to fool most people, including the movers and shakers (especially media members) in my native country, all of whom now live in exile.

However, he’s not going to put up with those who hate us, who want to kill us, and who hate our culture and traditions. We Americans are tolerant, but we also will fight to the death to preserve our hard fought for freedom and liberty!

      We need to stop worrying about being less racist than thou. The Democrats/liberals do not care at all about such efforts. We could have an all black Republican caucus (and we certainly have GOP blacks) and the Dems would still us accuse of racism and it would stick. No amount of positive optics on the matter and it will never.

      There is nothing wrong at all with having a bunch of white people show up and enjoy themselves. Racial diversity is not a goal in and of itself, nor it will artificial attempts to produce it help us in anyway.

      I attended two Trump rallies and yes, it was mostly white people. But there were some blacks, Chinese, and we had several black speakers, who were as popular or more than some of the white speakers. It is okay. It’s what is. We can only encourage people to join us. We need accept the results of those efforts rather than play by the rules of the liberals, which had been a losing proposition for decades.

        “Our country is facing a culture war, not a race war!”

        But if we are painfully honest with ourselves, culture (the aggregate preferences of a group) and genetics (the origins of a related group) are interrelated in way that’s not okay to discuss anymore. Race/ethnicity is much more than skin deep, as even a casual reading of which genetic maladies affect which groups reveals.

        But you can’t even float that as a proposition publicly. It’s taboo completely, which is why the alt-right even exists. It’s why Trump got accused of “bigot” for the noting the obvious that a Mexican judge ruling on his case might be biased towards ideas that would help Mexicans, after a ruling against him with no legal basis. It’s very strong taboo.

        And I know I’m pushing that taboo by even typing up these thoughts. I’ve had people block me for even milder thoughts than these on Twitter.

        “They were all invited… End of story…”

        This is the end of the story. Regardless of any theories, whether yours or mine, every effort was made to include everyone. That’s all anyone can do.

          If race played a factor at all in culture, why did the West so readily adopt a religion first spread by the Semitic disciples of a carpenter from Nazareth?

          A couple I know in my parish adopted two wonderful black children from Africa as infants. They behave just like their white brothers and sisters and get good grades just like they do.

          Or how about going back and looking at how strong the families and work ethic of American blacks before the New Deal welfare state was foisted on them? Sixty years isn’t enough time for genetics to do jack squat.

          The war is with a culture that tries to tell those black kids that because of the color of their skin they shouldn’t even try to be better and should just line up for government hand outs. Those who avoid listening to such dreck perform right on par with white Americans with some failing and some excelling far beyond what the socialists tell them should be possible (ex. Clarence Thomas).

          The Alt-Right exists because it feels good to get some payback by turning the Left’s own tactics against them. But those tactics only destroy; they aren’t going to do a bloody thing to actually rebuild all that the left has already torn down. It serves a purpose right now because we need to tear down the institutional left, but its its a dangerous beast that risks becoming the very thing it professes to hate and will certainly do so if allowed to run unchecked.

          What this country needs far more than the Alt-Right are builders who bring people together. You might need to demo the old condemned construct if its past the point of renovation, but if all you have are demolitions guys and no builders its just going to be an empty lot, not a shining city on a hill.

      I’ll support your point. The picnic was wonderful, but MSM will never say Black Caucus chose not to come . If they use the feed, they will imply (or outright lie) that only white members of Congress were invited. Many low information voters will believe that. Certainly every kid on a college campus will be told that and believe it. This does look like America in the 50’s – when segregation was still in effect. So you’re right about the optics, as wonderful as the event was. I also wonder why Trump is making nice with GOP leadership. They let American public – and foreign leaders – for months think Trump was under investigation, when he wasn’t. That’s unforgiveable, and sedtious and imho, treasonous.

      ______________

      Respectfully, I disagree, and I would like to present another viewpoint.

      No person should or needs to make some special effort to not ‘appear’ to be racist. Especially white people, who are the target of most of the actual racism today — to the point of regular and frequent unprovoked violence.

      I reject the assumption that I am guilty until proven innocent, and the concept that I need to prove myself innocent to any unknowable subjective standard held by someone else.

      It’s an impossible task which, if tried, would invariably leave you looking expectantly for a member of a ‘protected class’ to say ‘jump’ so you might win their approval by saying ‘how high’?

      I’m fairly certain that’s not how you meant it, but that’s where it leads.

        When I was a kid in the 50’s we lived in either Virginia, Georgia or Alabama. My sister and I would pack peanut butter sandwiches and head off to the “woods” to explore and pick blackberries. Our parents never worried even though we were gone for hours. It was a magical time that I so wish children today can experience. There was no crime or fear of the unknown. How sad that today such ability to experience what we did does not exist for the most part.

My brother (or my friend) and I used to ride our bikes all over the neighborhood, go to our large shopping mall, explore Woolworth, sniffed perfume in Broadway Dept, run down to JC Penney basement and check out their bargains, walked 2 miles to the local library, ride down to the river bed and crawl thru what we called the “Bamboo Jungle”, massive “jungle” of large thickened bamboos, growing along the river bed–all this without our parents. I agree, Sara c, it was a magical time.

One of the major differences is the sense of community in the USA versus the total lack of it in other countries. I see very few “service” clubs, almost no charity funding even in times of disaster within their own countries, very little “volunteering” or parents being involved in youth programs/activities (if, indeed there are any.)

      Brant it was very deliberate.
      Read History, HACCP and the Food Safety Con Job By Nicole Johnson (5 of the 10 pages are references)

      Nicole documents the DELIBERATE destruction of the US farming communities that was the basis for our American communities.

      […]With World War II, America saw its agricultural system intentionally subjected to political policies that radically transformed it.[…]

      This transformation was the result of organized plans developed by a group of highly powerful — though unelected — financial and industrial executives who wanted to drastically change agricultural practices in the US to better serve their collective corporate financial agenda. This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations. CED has influenced US domestic policies in much the same way that the CFR has influenced the nation’s foreign policies[…]

      The human cost of CED’s plans were exacting and enormous.

      CED’s plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers’ lives ended in suicide[…]

      The CED is still hard at work destroying the last of America’s small farmers. Here in North Carolina they are suggesting that the tax structure allowing lower taxes for farmland ‘robs’ the government of millions in taxes.

      SEE: Property Tax Breaks for Farms in NC: A Development Tool in Need of Reform?

      $200 million. That’s the estimated property tax revenue North Carolina’s 100 counties defer each year under the state’s present-use value (“PUV”) property tax exclusion program for farms and other favored properties. And by “defer,” I really mean “lose,” because most of those deferred PUV taxes will never be collected.[…]

I haven’t gotten all ready to try my own as I’m working on the 100 year old house, but really just nips and tucks and ready to go. Goat fencing is 70% ok, just some tightening and straightening.

    Society needs more positive articles like this one.
    Words like “joy, fellowship, commonality, common and genuine decency, authenticity; self-discipline and a pride in success” have been buried under a steady avalanche of spiteful, divisive, political hate and venom that only scattered pockets of humanity have been able to resist.

    I remember my parents often using words like common decency and self reliance. But they also spoke about kindness, good manners, respectful and acceptable codes of conduct toward others and the importance of working towards a favorable occupational niche that will sustain me as an self reliant adult.

    When I was old enough to work full time, I soon learned exactly what a “favorable job niche” was and wasn’t. But thanks to the work ethic they passed on to me, I eventually found it so I could do my part for my family and for the patients I was employed to serve.

    When I was a girl, we had an all day Labor Day Picnic. A parade with horses and bands and queens in convertibles, and flags – and streets lined with people who applauded and appreciated everyone in the parade.
    Lots of food and carnival rides – and later, a dance with a real, live band.

    It was so fun. And so safe. And so innocent.

    We went to a street dance this weekend.
    The street was blocked with heavy equipment. Small children had opportunities to dance.
    Adults clogged and square danced.
    Older adults sat in their lawn chairs and watched.

    So did I. But mainly I scanned the folks watching.

    Just in case.

    I was “situationally aware” the entire time.

    And I am certain there were many others in the community who were doing the same and were prepared to act if necessary.

    The contrast between my childhood and that of those children who danced this weekend…oh the contrast!

    We were innocent and this weekend – so were those children.

    But now – as a senior citizen – I know that innocence can be stolen in an instance.

    That knowledge can make me angry and sometimes it does. But now – this weekend – I thought about our leader – our President Trump.

    I’m not angry.

    I am emboldened. Thank you President Trump. I don’t know how or why, but I believe you are one of us.

    I think your amazing wife may have helped you understand who we are. Thank you, Melania.

    And having done all, I know that I will stand for what we know to be truth, honor and the United States of America way.

    I will stand and so will many, many others.

    We’re just plain folks. But we “know in Whom we have believed and we are persuaded that He is able to keep that which we have committed unto Him against that day.”

    President Trump – you set an earthly example for us of honor and confidence and wisdom. But, Christ gives us the assurance of eternal hope.

    A Hope that I pray gives you an additional measure of courage and confidence, too, President and Mrs. Trump. May God bless you and yours in all the days to come.

    Trump has his parallel health care and banking approaches. He has demonstrated/is demonstrating how to do it. We need to individually run a parallel approach to our communities and join with others when we can. We act parallel to the entrenched and impersonal gov’t run system.

    In my own community, I hold doors open for all, but make a special point even to wait a bit longer when there is an ethnic difference. (sorry for the PC lingo). (OK, I admit, I say to myself it’s “PR”). But I’m sure they hear and see enough negative, that a bit of positive is huge. A neighbor about 1/2 mile away would walk/skateboard 2 miles to the local skate park. I will always pick him up when I see him. A couple months ago on super hot day, he was meeting a couple ethnically diverse friends half way there. I told them to get on in and I would take them. And I gave them water when they got out. I wouldn’t want wife to do it of course.

    A few weeks ago (summer vacation), I saw a grandmother and 2 grandsons setting up a sort of clothing yard sale in a vacant lot. Super hot south georgia day. Either she raising them or she had them while daughter at work. They were really making an effort to make some money. I gave her $5 right there. Then being such a hot day, I went to the store and got water and snacks and brought back.

    She was raising them right and had them say thank you, etc. I looked them right in their eye/focus on them shook their hands probably 10 years old at most. And I said what I always say, “thank you very much, sir”. Part of my thinking is, when have they maybe ever heard that word directed right at them and they are the recipients. I particularly make it a bit more obvious if I’m talking to boys. They hear enough negative.

    I am a teacher and every time I talk to the students, it’s thank you sir/ma’am or yes sir/ma’am. We “expect” them to respect us, we need to respect them. And if I don’t hear respect back, I don’t say, “now what do you say?” Forced respect is worse than no respect. Breeds resentment.

We gave him a ride to the nearest town so he could buy the parts to fix his truck and then dove him back. We had a grand old time swapping tales of horses, exchanging cards and such. We moved to the side of a dead end street and must have spent another hour chatting about horses. We even had three other car loads of people stop get out and look at our animals and chat.

    The NEA and its associated teacher’s unions must be overhauled or broken up. The left still owns the spaces where young minds are shaped. An ‘Obama’ would not have been possible, nor another Clinton (as a serious candidate) absent the vast numbers of post-American mutants squeezed through the bowels of public education, for decades.

    I care less about pursuing the criminals who ran rampant for eight-years, enabled and encouraged by the Gangster on the Golf Course than I do about hard targeting of our public education, including any college or university receiving fed funds. (Not that I wouldn’t die a happy man to see his entire administration perp walked with Hillary in the lead.)

    I want to contribute something useful tonight, so, hopefully this will be for many……. I am sure many are aware of Reiman Publishing, (which has been bought by Readers Digest a few years ago)….. I have subscribed, for years, to their many different magazines, particularly Reminisce, Country, Country Xtra & Taste of Home. I mention these, especially Reminisce, because they help keep our country’s history alive. The stories are written by the people themselves. Also, gives valid Information, knowledge & understanding to younger adults & kids…..Could get them free through the library if anyone wanted to check them out.

    While FDR’s Treasury department’s resident Communist Harry White was a great ally of Keynes, the 1960 campaign in great part was about full implementation of Fabian Socialist John Maynard Keynes’ economic theory in the United States. Basically, an incrementalist approach to the Socialist takeover of America.

    As great a Reagan was, he allowed enemies of Free Markets such as Bush 41, a globalist, and a number of his allies places in his Administration, which muted his economic message somewhat. Trump appears aware of this and has a true conservative number 2 in Pence and a more conservative cabinet.

    The greater problem facing Trump than Reagan is the DC Swamp is much deeper and anti-American corruption now infests the Federal bureaucracy everywhere you look. And, they’ve formed a hellish alliance with the American Media and Educational System.

    Whether the decline of America can be reversed is still very much in doubt, but at least there is a fighter at the helm today. And we can expect the McCain’s, Gramnesty’s and rest of the GOPe to fight him every step of the way to preserve their corrupt power, perks, and donor dollars.

    I have just been reading all of your comments on how close America came to being lost. There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump will be greatest president this country has known in recent times – maybe ever! In fact without him there would be no America the Beautiful left. All was lost! All the other 16 candidates were owned by the Bankers. (A fake Muslim president who was not even a citizen who hates America’s,guts) – forced on us by the traitorous Fake Media and world wide Fake actors to play the parts – a fake first lady President who was a well known Criminal who supported the killing of our policemen and the over- running of our country with brutal killers who want to cut off your head – Folks it was all over! If (The Donald) had not been there for us – America would have been lost forever! Doesn’t that shake you to the very core of your existence? The question is – with President Trump and the second amendment still intact – what will we – the American people do with this nasty bunch of bastards? You know! I’m sure glad we have the great problem solver on our side because I have 100% Faith in him, and since he is way smarter than me, I am just gonna sit back and watch them all freak out!!!! LOL – MAGA
