A new word has joined the lexicon of the English language, the word is “snowflake”. Here's the definition of the word:
“An overly sensitive person incapable of dealing with any opinion that differs from his/her own”. These people can often be seen congregating mainly on college campuses.
Look what is happening on many college campuses around the country today. Schools have set up “safe spaces”, where students can be free of any opinions that might make them upset - no adverse opinions that might upset someone will be tolerated in those “safe spaces”. In addition, some schools have also banned certain words (speech codes) like the term “freshman” which in normal parlance means a student's first year in high school or college, as being sexist, and therefore, unacceptable by “wussified” professors and administrators trying to appeal to the far-left fringe, which generally run most colleges and universities.
Another fallout from this bogus sensitivity of others hearing or spouting differing opinions, is the rise of organizing efforts, some of which are sponsored by outside agitating groups, some of which are financed by George Soros, to prevent, shout down, or harass speakers that have different points of view, mainly conservative speakers like Condolezza Rice, writer and pundit Ann Coulter, social scientist Dr. Charles Murray, columnist Ben Shapiro, author David Horowitz and a host of other learned speakers from the “right” point of view (i.e. Republicans, conservatives or libertarians). In some cases, riots and desecration of property has occurred, on and off campus, with little consequences meted out to the students and agitators causing the damage or mayhem. It is a well-known fact, that most all schools of higher learning are staffed with leftist professors and administrators, who tout the liberal progressive line, and who institute restrictive rules and regulations controlling the actions of students on and off the campus. Free speech, which the liberals and progressives champion as part of their makeup, is generally limited on campus if anyone tries to digress from the “party line”, which is liberal progressive orthodoxy.
The term “snowflake” is a natural progression of the hideous term “political correctness”, which has had an adverse effect upon our language and culture for many years. Many “unelected” busybodies (mostly from the left side of the political spectrum) have determined what is permissible to be said or done under penalty of public ostracism and scorn by these members of the so-called “P.C. Police”. You name it, our lives are being disrupted by others telling us what is permissible in the general interchange between people as to what we can say or do.
Just recently, Dr. Ben Carson, President Trump's H.U.D. Secretary, was accused of making a “racist” statement by inferring that the slaves that were brought here against their will, hundreds of years ago, were in a way, immigrants to our country. A totally benign statement that was twisted and spun to infer that he made a racist remark by equating slavery with immigration. The fact that Dr. Carson was a black person meant nothing to these “race hustlers”, he is a conservative Republican and a member of Trump's cabinet, therefore, he must be condemned and pilloried. Little mention was made that our first black President Barack Obama, had made over 10 similar references, over the years, equating slavery and immigration, by using the same analogy as Dr. Carson. No condemnation from the left about Obama's remarks, most likely because he was a liberal Democrat, and in their eyes, he was the right kind of black person, not a black Republican and Trump supporter, like Dr. Carson.
Wake up America, our traditions, culture, and morals are under attack, we must not sit idly by and accept this “wussification” of America without some form of a counter attack. Our present president, Donald Trump seems to be leading the charge against this insidious manipulation of our lives by the left. We should back him completely in his quest to neutralize the “snowflakes” and the P.C. Police.

We are experiencing dire consequences from all sides of the spectrum because, many on the Washington scene are fearful the game is over and their cushy jobs are in peril of going down with the draining of the swamp.
It isn't mere speculation that the hold overs from the last administration may be behind the intelligence leaks and the chaotic events designed to upset President Trump's agenda for making America great again, as evidenced by the hateful rhetoric expressed from these people.
The Democratic party no longer exists as it was before the Obama era, because it has compromised traditional values, and the people, not living in heavily populated coastal urban areas have spoken.
They didn't vote for Donald Trump for his personality or oratory, but for action he promised, that has already been displayed in such a short time.
The people are also fed up with the anarchists, Bolsheviks and other organizations claiming their rioting is legal protest. They draw in the unsuspecting, uninformed naïve, who are emotionally primitive in their attempt to express themselves without violence, and are limited in their vocabulary by confining themselves to using a barrage of "F" bombs to state their opposition to traditions.
The Trumpians mean to change the climate and clean the attitude of the Washington elitists.

My definition of “fake news” is a person or organization that is attempting to purvey or present a story to the public that's made up or grossly embellished in order to promote some agenda or to be against some person with whom they dislike or abhor. You could say that both political parties have been guilty of doing that, but it seems that the liberals (a/k/a Democrats and Progressives) have taken it to a whole new level, especially since Donald Trump became a candidate and eventually the President of the United States.
It is normal for the news media or political opponents (in some cases they are one in the same) to “spin” information to further their views. That might be looked upon as “white lies”, but when stories are made up of “whole cloth” to be used as a negative weapon against someone or something you don't support or agree with, that is a “whopper” of a lie, and can be considered “fake news”.
President Trump, who is probably considered to be one of the most unorthodox politicians in modern history, has been the victim of this phenomenon, of the presentation of made up stories and outright fabrications by his opponents in the media and by the Democrats. Trump being Trump, doesn't take those “bogus” stories lying down, he fights right back and goes after those who he feels are trying to undermine him and his presidency. Some made up stories to make my point are: that he removed a bust of Martin Luther King from the Oval Office (not true), that the 1st lady Melania Trump was an escort, a prostitute when she first came to the United States (not true), that his White House staff is in disarray according to “unnamed” sources in the White House (not true) etc., etc.
The news media is overwhelmingly liberal and it's sympathies generally are “in the pocket” of the Democrats. Therefore, the stories they speak on or write about are generally unfavorable to the Republicans, and especially unfavorable to President Trump.
Now don't get me wrong, the president, Donald Trump, is not always accurate in some of his utterances he makes, but they are generally exaggerations and/or bravado, not meaningful or earth shattering untruths. But, the news media and the Democrats jump on those utterances and generally make “mountains out of molehills”, as the old saying goes, accusing him of gross misconduct, and of all things, “impeachable offenses”.
All during his campaign and during the initial phases of his presidency, President Trump has used the term “fake news” to label some of the stories promulgated by the news media, especially CNN, MSNBC, the N.Y. Times, and Wash. Post etc. These news organizations take exception when Pres. Trump labels them purveyors of “fake news”, but the public seems to agree with Pres. Trump that many of the stories that are put out for publication are made up, with no reliable sourcing, and meant to make Pres. Trump and his administration look bad and to undermine his presidency. That tactic seems to have backfired on the media, and the public is very disenchanted by the low ratings they give to the news media.
We do have “freedom of speech” in our country, but we also have a set of morals (which seem to be under fierce attack lately) and a Constitution which has been given to us by our forefathers. Honesty and integrity are two principles that should be followed by all who disseminate the news (the 4th Estate), and it should be fair and balanced in reporting of that news. Opinions should be reserved for the editorial page and not in the actual news stories, and made up stories (fake news) should be scrapped altogether, otherwise our whole system, our democratic republic, will be compromised and made a farce. President Trump says he will fight against “fake news” with all his might, and from his past record of achieving success, he might just succeed in reducing its incidence or he might even be able to get rid of it altogether.

Let’s be fair to the Fairways.
Woodmont Country Club located just outside Washington, D.C. has a very fine golf course that is renowned among those who love that sport. It was founded in 1921 by Washington, D.C. German-Jewish Golfers so that they might enjoy a facility at which they were welcome, which was not the case at the other private courses convenient to the Nation’s Capital.
In the aftermath of the recent missed opportunity to take action in support of Israel as it was being piled-on at the UN, the full-time golf course hacker & part-time president Barack Hussein Obama’ was being considered for a ‘complimentary’ membership to Woodmont. Suddenly, it became a cause for concern.
Hence, the ultra-Leftist Liberal Jewish members who were and are still, enthusiastic supporters of Hussein Obama, find that they are being thwarted in their efforts to bestow this honor upon him, due to his action of openly stabbing Israel in the back.
It is this writer’s suggestion that there ought to be a path by which Obama might be brought in from the shadows. He should be permitted to work as a Caddy for a trial period of ten years after which, if he has compiled a clean record, he might once again be considered for membership. This time, as an Associate, non-voting member of the Club, fully-paid-up from his own funds. He would then be allowed access to the Course, to play 18 holes by himself, during the Jewish High Holidays while Club members of the Jewish faith are at services in their Synagogues. It’s all about ‘Fairness’ folks, it’s all about ‘Fairness’.

If you listen to to some of the militant so-called black leaders and radical civil rights leaders, you'd think that every time a policeman kills a black person, it was based on the policeman's innate racism toward blacks. Do these race hustlers have a legitimate gripe? Let's look at the facts: In 2015, 986 people were shot and killed by police. Of that number, 495 were white (50%) and 258 were black (26%). That's a 2 to1 ratio.
Many liberals portray shootings by police as racist attacks on blacks, regardless of the facts. It turns out that the U.S. Justice Dep't. has found that black police officers in San Francisco and Philadelphia are more likelier than white officers to shoot and use force against black suspects. Is that racism? According to Heather MacDonald, author of the book, “War on Cops”, in 2013, 42% of cop killers were black and there was no charge of racism by the “poverty pimps” (Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Black Lives Matter, New Black Panther Party, Louis Farrakhan etc.)
Another false claim by academic liberals and civil rights spokespeople who make the claim that the disproportionate number of blacks in prison is a result of racism and strict drug laws that target blacks more than any other group. They ignore the fact that black criminal activity is many multiples of that of other racial groups. MacDonald says that state prisons contain 88% of the nation's prison population and that just 4% of state prisoners are incarcerated for drug possession. The vast majority of blacks in prison are there because of violent crime - and mostly against other black people. In fact, the most tragic aspect of black crime are law abiding black people who must conduct their lives in fear. The white liberals, who constantly make excuses for this aspect of black crime, do not live this way and in most cases would not tolerate it.
When President Trump makes reference to this horrible situation, he is vilified and called a racist and insensitive to the plight of the black community that are confronted with this almost on a daily basis. But, why are pliant blacks being used as pawns of the white liberals who are mostly in charge of the cities where this black crime is taking place? They should be using their efforts to support and champion the people who are trying to protect them from the criminals among them, the police. (Most of this information I've mentioned in this editorial was gleaned from an article by Professor Walter Williams, a well respected black academic and economist).
The term racist, which is used primarily by liberals to attack conservatives, is now becoming hackneyed and irrelevant because it is being over used by the purveyors of racial tumult. The biggest victims of this slander and libel are conservative blacks like Ben Carson, Thomas Sowell, Lt.Col. Allen West, Larry Elder, Sen. Tim Scott and the aforementioned Walter Williams etc., all highly respected citizens by fair-minded people.
So, the next time you hear any of the racial arsonists claim that the police are the enemies of black people, refer to the crime statistics I've presented in this editorial to refute their baseless charges.
