The Awful Aftermath

Opinion, Politics

Written And Submitted By: George McClellan

 

What happened yesterday in Washington DC, while inconceivable, could not have been unexpected. After seventy-seven million Trump voters saw their votes stolen, after being exposed to four years of violence without consequences, calls for defunding society’s protectors accompanied by murders and arsons, and realizing a double standard of justice really exists, how can it not be unexpected, like the unattended pot that boils over, that violence would flare up somewhere? This time it was our nations capital where denizens of the Deep State sought to ratify the greatest crime of the 21st century, the theft of a presidential election, an event that will push the American nation into the socialist camp, possibly forever.

 

The wide spread condemnation of the events at the Washington Rally, because it turned violent, is all the politicians and media can do. They will not address the underlying issue of a corrupted election but now will cast all Conservative protesters as “Enemies of the State!”  The idea of  “peaceful protests” evaporated when Federal Courts wouldn’t even consider hearing the overwhelming voter fraud evidence collected by Trumps team. Nothing was dismissed, they just refused to consider the evidence. 

 

Also ignored is the published Anti-Fa instructions to its followers to attend the rally, wear red MAGA hats, mingle with the conservative protesters and take action where appropriate. Was the idiot who was photographed sitting in Nancy Pelosi’s chair, Richard “Bigo” Barnett from Arkansas, really an Antifa? Inquiring minds need to know because we saw no apparent arrests of the invaders on either the Capital steps or in the Chambers. Admittedly, Law Enforcement was overwhelmed but were the Antifa’s allowed to escape? Sad that one protester was shot but posing a threat to armed police can be a hazardous business. 

 

Democrats and the media are now screaming for Trumps impeachment, or his immediate removal as unfit for office, under Art XXV of the Constitution. They claim him as being personally responsible for the assault on the Congress. Nonsense of course, but the deed is done and as Trumps inner circle and Congressional supporters fade away, so do his chances for a 2024 return. The Marxists smell blood and will do all in their power to see President Trump and his legacy is totally destroyed. Socialism cannot abide success of the individual.

 

Come January 23, watch how fast Democrats pass Nancy and Chucks Marxist agenda for America without any opposition from what remains of our cowed Republican politicians. I applaud those brave House and Senate Republicans who did stand up and challenge the electoral thefts of five states but, enough anti-Trumpers were there to ensure no electoral vote reversal would happen. I suspect incidents of violence will carry on for a while now until Nancy’s  Marxists are organized enough to come after our guns then our property then our lives. 

 

“Mitch McConnell said: “Criminal behavior will never dominate Congress,” but I think he meant violent criminal behavior. God Bless him but, well, yes it did and by ‘dominate’ he meant the fear now facing all politicians in both houses, corrupt or not. The Democrats had better restrain their dogs on a leash, the Antifa’s and BLM’s or the Civil War they wanted will actually happen. 

 

In the meantime, Democrats will have the power of unlimited printing to fund the stupid New Green Deal programs, import and support illegal aliens and create government health schemes  that will eliminate the older population on one end and continue the murder of babies on the other.  America is nearly gone my friends. Is it worth fighting for? 

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (07Jan21)

Short Takes – What’s Happening in Nashville? Doubts of Course!

Opinion, Politics

Written And Submitted By George McClellan

 

There is a breathless video on the internet purporting to show a blue streak coming from the sky milliseconds, ie: ‘in a blink of an eye,’ before the RV exploded on the streets of Nashville, Tn. The camera that caught the explosion was apparently a fixed outdoor surveillance device overlooking a parking lot or something, a half mile away. It was around 0630 am.

 

I could not see a blue streak coming from the sky. What I believe the camera recorded was the  flashing blue lights of police vehicles already there reflecting off the smoke of the explosion. That explanation satisfies my own experience as a crime scene investigator. For the record, I graduated from the National Fire Academy arson investigators school.

 

But, the plot thickens. It was suggested that those Wiley Chinese have an orbiting platform equipped with a satellite killing plasma pulse weapon that fired at the van outside the AT&T building to fry the NSA’s supercomputer and the Dominion machines stored there supposedly for fraud examination. If that were really the case we would already be at war with China. If that’s the case, it’s no wonder Democrats wanted evidence there destroyed!

 

Some pundits claim the lack of a crater in the street beneath where the RV sat at the moment of detonation indicated its destruction was by some other esoteric source, meaning a space death ray or plasma weapon. Investigators working the crime scene will certainly be aware if the area is also covered by a fine dusting of carbon, a supposed characteristic of a such weapons.

 

Mark Esper, former Secretary of Defense, warned us in September that China had indeed deployed Directed Energy Weapons in space supposedly to “kill satellites.” That’s probably true but, we know about it. We have such devices up there ourselves. I have not seen a target destroyed by a directed energy pulse weapon except in Star Wars, but the condition of that destroyed RV was totally consistent with an internal detonation of common explosives. 

 

Because the worlds super powers already have entered space our imaginations can easily  accept the advanced science were are now experiencing, except the China Virus and Global Warming nonsense. Remember the Sci-Fi episodes of Flash Gordon on b&w TV back in the 50s? The villain then was the evil, Fu Man Chu looking, Emperor Ming, not unlike Emperor Ji Jingping today. That era here, so it’s not impossible to believe claims that Chinas evil Emperor Ji in collusion with China Joe, is shooting RV’s on the streets of Nashville, Tn, from space, is it? 

 

It seems the real perpetrator had a girlfriend who told the Nashville police a year ago, that her boyfriend was making bombs in that RV. The Nashville police did their job, took her information nearly as far as they could legally, then referred it to the FBI where it apparently disappeared into the black hole of inconvenient information. They claim they have no knowledge of it. We’re witnessing some great local police work here but, if the investigation interferes with the Democrats narrative that China Joe Biden, the imposter president-elect, won the election fair and square, then don’t expect to learn the opposite truth. Maybe thats why the FBI is there, to protect the Deep State like they did Hillary, FISA and the Trump coup attempt.  

 

It is sad to say that the integrity of any investigative product of the FBI, is forever tainted with the veneer of doubt and skepticism, like our national elections have become. I’m waiting for FBI investigators to reveal Anthony Quinn Warner’s affiliation with the Bernie Sander’s campaign. That should be interesting reading. But, don’t count on it!

BKP speaks with Republican Senator David Perdue

Election, Featured News, Featured Stories, News

Mere days before the run-off election deciding the Georgia’s Senate seats for this term, David Perdue (R), current Senator and incumbent candidate, is preparing for the final push up to election day. Counties across the state have reported record turn-outs for voting during 2020 and it looks like this election will see more voters than usual as well.

Voters are also turning out to rallies and campaign events as well. With debates still going over the Presidential Election and voters asking for continuing support, Perdue notes that he was among the few Senators who supported Trump before he was initially elected. Perdue said he fought with Trump as he turned the nations economy to it’s “best economic turnaround in history.”

Going through options and ideas in fighting what they are calling corruption in the recent election.

It is constantly a struggle against the Democrats according to Perdue who said that he is continuing to do everything that Trump asks him to do for that support.

Perdue noted, though, that people who are angry need to support Trump and the Republicans, but they also need to get out to vote. With numerous registered voters in every district still not voting on election day, Perdue calls to citizens saying that they are trying to fight the corruption and make the vote fair. He said they are working hard but it is very frustrating that people are still not voting.

Part of the efforts he has been working towards, Perdue has spoken with President Trump on Christmas Day. Perdue noted the stimulus and support for small businesses, people, and those in need from the pandemic fallout.

Perdue went on to speak on the omnibus bill at the federal level and looking at the efforts of the president fighting for people.

Perdue

Senator David Perdue

This was a great focus of Perdue in his time with BKP as he pointed to national security and what is at stake in the January election.

Perdue said that Jon Ossoff has been paid for two years by the Chinese Communist Party. Perdue said, “This is another example of how the Chinese Communist Party is trying to influence American Politics. They got in Hunter Biden’s pocket, they got into Congressman Swalwell’s bedroom, and they got into Jon Ossoff’s ego and his ambition to be an elected official. For two years after he ran for the U.S. House of Representatives and lost against Karen Handel in 2017. The very next year they hire him and pay him for two years. He hid it from the people of Georgia during his Primary this year. He lied about it. When he got caught, he came clean and then lied about it again.”

Perdue said that Ossoff is not good for Georgia because he is being controlled and influenced by China just like Biden and Swalwell. He noted that if the Republicans lose these two seats, then Biden will absolutely ruin everything in America that we have fought for.

Perdue called on voters again and said, “Don’t do it for me, don’t do it for Kelly, don’t do it for yourselves. Look at the children and think about their children. This is what’s at stake right now, the form of America. What America will look like in 50 to 100 years is determined by these two Senate races.”

Short Takes – How Do We Welcome the Chinese?

The Democrats can’t do much right except lie, cheat and steal; speaking of which, this 2020 election found them so desperate to regain power that not only did they outright steal the election by fraud, voter count manipulation and Chinese Dominion machines but they raised Biden’s count so erroneously high in suspect precincts that it even defied the imagination of some Democrats to believe.

 

That certain Federal courts, including the US Supreme Court, have refused to even view evidence of voter fraud of which there is enough overwhelming accounts of fraud and manipulation, to trigger charges of treason, may suggest that even the courts have been threatened by the unseen, but not unknown hand of Democrat violence.  

 

It is becoming clear that the “Consent of the People” is only a term to be ignored by our betters. Our elected representatives and senators, Democrat and Republican alike, consider our vote as “consent” that they are allowed to loot the US Treasury at will and any number of other foolish things. 

 

Representative Eric Swallwell, (D-Ca), on the House Intelligence Committee, barely made the headlines after he was caught shagging a female Chinese spy the FBI already knew of and he denies all. He didn’t blame Trump though, and all this after Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Ca) on the Senate Intelligence Committee was determined to have had in her employe a Chinese spy as her driver and assistant for twenty years.

 

Then comes Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) who advised all GOP Senators that they must accede to the will of the stolen election and accept the “consent of the people” for Joe Biden as the next President. BS! It is now revealed McConnell’s  Father in Law is a Chines shipping magnet for the CCP and his wife’s sister is on the board of a Chinese Bank. Could it be possible that perhaps, just maybe, Mitch himself has become by default, a Chinese Agent of Influence?

 

And then shock of all shocks, my own Governor, Brian Kemp, met with the Chines Counsel from Houston Texas, before signing a $170 million dollar contract for Dominion voting machines? Tell us it ain’t so Brian. It’s bad enough that the idiot Ga Secty of State Brad Raffensperger didn’t know his job and concluded mail-in ballot voting agreements with a nobody, Democrat, Stacy Abrams, contrary to Georgia law. Where are our State elected representatives in this matter? Why aren’t they loudly complaining about an idiot and a Democrat taking away their power and authority? 

 

January 6 can’t come fast enough. Enough newly elected GOP Representatives and some Senators have agreed to contest all fraudulent election returns making China Joes’s sure election a toss up. If the constitutional measures to replace electors for Republicans actually take affect, than we can expect the anarchy of the Democrats shock troops to go into action. That will open the way for Trumps 2018 insurrection act to take affect and this whole business can be concluded on the streets of burning American Blue cities, most of which need cleansed anyway. The time is ripe. Lets do it!

Another Path to Election Corruption

Opinion, Politics

Written And Submitted By George McClellan

 

If we are in the least bit conversant with the US Constitution, we know our government was designed by the “consent of the people” with powers delegated to elected representatives, not career politicians or appointees, to represent the peoples interest in running government.

 

Every US State has its own constitution basically reflecting the US Constitution, that codifies and protects our God given rights and ratified by our elected representatives as the Rule of Law.  We call those “elected” people who administer our laws, apart from Governors, Senators and Representatives who make therm, “Constitutional Officers” because we, the people, elected them to their positions according to the Rule of Law.

 

At the States level, three of the most important elected officials, apart from the Governor and Lt. Governor, are the Attorney General’s and the Secretary’s of State. The third most important elected official in the lexicon of jurisprudence for effective government are the county Sheriffs. For any of them to go rogue is to perpetrate a travesty on the people who elected them; and the only true remedy for their removal is the election process. When that process is corrupted, then the Rule of Law has been abandoned and the only remedial recourse must fall back into the hands of “The People.” I invite your attention to the Athens, Tennessee incident of the post World War II era as an example of the rule of law being successfully restored to the people, by the people. It’s not the best remedy, but it can’t be dismissed!

 

Georgia is now the focus of the 2020 National Election because of two Senate seats up for grabs, both currently occupied by Republicans and challenged by odious radicals. This unfortunate happenstance occurred because the Republican vote was dissipated by challenges of other worthy conservative candidates who believed they were better capable to do the job but couldn’t muster the votes to do it. But, that’s how it should be!  One big problem is the basic ignorance of the mass of voters who put these office holders in place, most always candidates supported by the party of which they are a member. We trust to the recommendations of party leaders in supporting their choice of office holders for us, but even there that process can, and often does, fail because of poorly vetted incompetent candidates or pure corruption.

 

In the case of Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, the 2020 election process, filled with Democrat demands for “fairness & etc” simply overwhelmed his little grey cells and he unlawfully capitulated to their demands. You see, nowhere in Georgia’s constitution is the Secretary of State or the Governor even, authorized to make election changes outside of the Rule of Law, ie: Georgia’s constitution. Either a weakness of character, corruption or a lack of knowledge allowed this travesty to happen and it might just have changed the world. Also, a failure of the legislative process, into whose hands only, such election changes and rule making are authorized, contributed to this issue that is now a National fiasco. Win or lose, we must brace ourselves for the coming onslaught of rabid marxism. We won’t like it; it’s unAmerican!

 

The remedy for Raffensperger’s destructive incompetence is to remove him from his position to do further damage by voter recall and hold an open election for all comers to refill that office, But, by no means can it be accepted that the Secretary of States position become an appointed one delivered to the highest bidder or political activist at the will and pleasure of the party in power. No, no, no! To do so will irrevocably deny Americans their constitutional rights and most certainly usher in and fix in place, a level of corruption at the State level such as we are now experiencing at the National level. It’s another path to election corruption! We don’t need that!

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (12Dec20)

Good Advice! Never, Ever Give Up!

Politics

Written And Submitted By: George McClellan

 

I’m very impressed that President Trump is strictly following Hillary Clinton’s advice to Joe  Biden: “Never, ever concede.” That’s very good advice indeed! The last trick in their bag, at  least for this election, is to declare victory, ensconce Joe Biden in a pretend Presidential Office  and demand all the trappings attendant to a peaceful transition of power, something the  Democrats never did for Trump. Why should President Trump concede when voting frauds are  being revealed, whistleblowers are coming forward to give sworn testimony and the matter is  not even closely settled? 

We’re still faced with a conundrum. Biden is a pathological liar. So is the media! He doesn’t  know what he’s talking about, can’t remember his cues on the teleprompter and is in short,  Incapable of leading. That whole idea of Joe leading anything is a joke!  

No thanks to the media for hiding the stories that should be important to voters, but it can’t be  denied, Joe Biden is corrupt! We all know it, he said so himself! He’s also compromised as an  Agent of Influence for the Chinese Communist Party and yet he pretends to have integrity. His  long career in politics taught Joe how to enrich himself and his family without getting caught. A  

serial plagiarizer unable to think on his feet or write his own thoughts at his desk and incapable  of formulating a coherent sentence, Democrats demand that Americans accept him as their  leader even in the face of massive voter fraud investigations. Trump should not concede at all!  

History is filled with stories of flawed hero’s coming at the right time to end disasters and Trump  is one of them because after the economic failures of eight years of Obama, Trumps miracle  leadership accomplished more in four years than any other Party did in eight or ten or twenty  years! Trumps business policies created a booming economy, moving all Americans of all races  toward better jobs and prosperity. He’s trashed the socialists economic policies of our past  administration, changed environmental laws to help Americans prosper and returned Americas  military to a world force to be reckoned with. 

As I have said before I have no grief with a Billionaire who becomes President. Where I take  umbrage is when a stupid politician becomes a millionaire and no one (media) notices. Joe’s  dull career specialized in graft and corruption to enrich himself and his family.  

If we listened to and accepted what the media would have us believe, it’s a sure bet that if  voters were told to get into boxcars to be taken to virus protection camps, most Biden voters  would rush to get in line. “Oh, Save us Joe!” Then there’s the global warming nonsense. Do we  imagine the rest of the world ready to save the planet from evil carbon? No, but the rest of the  world has exempted China and India from carbon footprint controls! They can continue their  fossil fuel burning right along with the 400 more or less, active volcanoes spewing toxins into  our atmosphere but, wicked America needs to do more to reduce carbon pollution. 

Americas biggest enemy is not Trump defending his Presidency from Democrat theft but it’s the  Communist Democrat party who are the thieves and our enemy! If Joe doesn’t win, anarchists  groups like BLM and Antifa promise massive violent demonstrations across the country. If states  enact their military options to defend the Constitution and Americans from evil, the National  Guard will have to crush ’em. If official State governments fail to act because they are  Communist run, then Americans will turn to an age old technique called vigilantism to stem the  tide. If anarchy is not stopped, that could portend the death knell on our Republic. Remember, freedom is the goal the Constitution is the way. Now, go get en! (15Nov20)

Short Takes – Two Weeks

Americans have been conned by the outrageous lies of Democrats. Within two weeks America will know if it will remain the beacon of hope for all people or will we slide into the abyss of third world violence, totalitarism and slavery. True Americans are not going to allow Democrats with their mail in ballot schemes to ruin our country. Americans will not accept demented Joe Biden who would soon die, leaving Marxist Kamala Harris as President. No one wanted her! 

 

Americas accepted values of civility were inexorably altered in Minneapolis, Mn, when Floyd George, a black two-bit thief, robber, fraudster and drug user, died at police hands while being arrested for passing a counterfeit twenty. Democrats saw an opportunity and went crazy elevating this thug to Saintly status, eulogizing  his worthless life in funerals in three different cities. The “pity show” for poor Floyd George went on for days and gullible Americans, thinking they could assuage their whiteness, sent in thousands of dollars to a cadre of Marxist revolutionaries, mostly white morons, whose aim is to overthrow the United States of America and replace it with fascism.

 

What happens then? Fascism of course!  We’ve already experienced multiple robberies and street violence to show respect and deep grief for the unlamented George. Violence swept the US and then went world wide into a planed and coordinated attack against western values. Nobody was left untouched. Black as well as white businesses were looted and burned, counter protests were quickly shut down with violence by Antifa’s, Police ordered to stand down and streets cordoned off from fire and medical aid and, the murders of eighty-nine policemen.

 

The most useless presidential candidate ever to take the field, Joe Biden, fell to his knees and wept. Whose got a violin? I’ll turn the weepy pages. So did the wicked old lady of the House, and her silly looking cohorts of Progressive sympathizers, wearing bits of African cloth around their necks, presumably to show solidarity with poor George Floyd. All lies!

 

Americans are beyond reasoning with these people. They lie! It’s in their DNA and they cannot stop themselves. They are products of the teachings of now long dead Socialists like John Dewey, Betty Friedan. William James, Alfred Kinsey, Aldous Huxley Benjamin Bloom, B.F.  Skinner, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Saul Alinsky, Sigmund Freud, Margaret Sanger, Roger Baldwin and many others whose wicked philosophies are borne out on our streets today.

 

Joe Biden is a cannon ball on a pitching deck for Democrats. Even with a Teleprompter and aides standing at his elbow, he can’t get it right. He refuses to answer questions about his son, Hunter Biden’s wealthy involvement with both the Ukraine and China; denies having even consulted with Hunter on any of these issues and even in the face of irrefutable evidence, denies any wrong doing.

 

Democrats are totally corrupt! Everything to them is politics for power and they’ll sign on with the devil to get it. Speaking of which, lurking in the wings is China’s Emperor Ji jingping, aided and abetted by Hunter Biden who sold his fathers influence as VP to Americas enemies for millions. 

This is the epitome of the Deep State Swamp that president Trump has promised to drain. They are fighting back with lies, lies and more lies and yet, we see no movement in the Halls of Justice to bring these creatures to book! We’re two weeks away from a reckoning. If they win, Joe and Hunter may be the richest men in America, lackeys to Emperor Ji Jingping.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get angry! (18Oct20)

Short Takes – “There is No Such Uncertainty as a Sure Thing”

Opinion

written by: George McClellan

 

The title quote is attributed to the revered Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796)! The truth of his statement has been borne out multiple time since his day, encompassing the defeat of the Axis in WWII and, no more obviously than the 2016 presidential election when all the poll pundents, the expert media prognosticators and Democrat hangers-on predicted with absolute certainty that America would be blessed with a Hillary Clinton presidency. “Oh, Joy, Rapture!” The smartest woman in the world to become Americas first woman president & etc, Give us a break!

 

The uncertainty then was wondering why Democrats would support the worlds smartest woman Hillary Clinton, as a candidate while under investigation by the FBI for multiple felonies, and believing the FBI, DoJ, CIA & IRS were fair and honest, believed in the Constitution and would send the miscreant to jail. Then, they let the rat out of the trap and with the certainty of fanatic devotees to Beelzebub, that she would never see the inside of a prison except possibly to visit Comey, Brennan, McCabe and Strzok, they sought to resurrect their version of the Communist Manifesto yet again in the sure and certain hope their corrupt deep state activities would fade away and they could resume their coup against America’s President. It hasn’t happened yet!

 

Four years later we’re faced with that exact same uncertainty, oh, not from Trump supporters, flyover country deplorable’s, prospering Americans of African descent or working Latinos, but from Democrats who have gone into melt down wondering how they could have possibly put up the weakest nincompoop in the Democrat Party as their candidate against a virtual eating machine of incompetent performers, Donald Trump who is prepared to devour their whole scheme and candidate too! What’s now certain is to win they’re going to have to cheat and   they are good at it!

 

It’s not difficult to guess what the Democrats have in mind to steal the presidency from the most successful political leader since General George Washington, and turn America into a slobbering country of social misfits whose survival depends on what the State gives ’em! It’s already started with the mail in ballots. How does that work and still ensure honesty? I don’t know.  Ask a Democrat. I do know this. While on our recent vacation trip to Wyoming, we met a vacationer from Texas who told us he had already received, unsolicited, four mail in ballots from Ohio and two from Illinois, states he has never visited let alone lived in! He thought he would fill ’em all in for Trump and send ’em back like a good voter would.

Conservatives do have a big problem. We’re still attached to the Republican party and while the Democrat party doesn’t really know what it is or wants with contending factions pushing any moderates to the far left, the Republicans still have RiNO’s and anti-Trumpers sitting on their hands hoping Trump will fail and they are not seen as helping the Marxists in that failure. Sen. Susan Collins, (R-Ma) is as flakey as they come and desperately needs to be replaced, but now Conservatives are almost forced into helping her win another term as a RiNO moderate just to keep the GOP’s senate count above 50%. And if she does win there is still no certainty that she even recognizes the dangers facing our Constitutional Republic.  Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is another goofball RiNO that has to go, sooner rather than later, but right now, alas, she’s a Senate Republican vote if she knows how to use it. If clueless Joe is the best they got, and he wins, we’re all in trouble. If you want a hint on Joe’s oncoming dementia, watch this recent video for a while: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnafho4KMiQ&feature=youtu.be. Then, remember who’s behind him, the first drop-out of the Democrat primary, super marxist Kamala Harris.  Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em?

I am Black, and I am a Democrat, But, “I Ain’t” Voting for Joe Biden This November 

Letters to Editor, Opinion

Written and Submitted By State Representative Vernon Jones (D-Lithonia)

(976 words)

             Since that day in May when I announced I would support Donald Trump for president, my motives have been questioned, my integrity assailed and even my intelligence challenged.  That is okay. I am a lifelong Democrat, but I am also a Black man, the son of a World War II veteran and a proud American.

In recent weeks, there have been absurd calls to defund and disband police departments across the country by Democrats in response to the unjust murder of George Floyd. These are extreme calls that will only lead to more pain and suffering in our most vulnerable communities.

As the former chief executive officer of DeKalb County, Georgia, I have had to manage one of the largest police departments in the state of Georgia. I have had the experience of dealing with police shootings and comforting the families of victims. But, at the same time, I have also had the experience of losing two black police officers. I have had to comfort their families in the middle of the night and console their young children. I know firsthand when others are running away from chaos, police officers are running into the fight to protect and serve.

President Trump was sickened by the death of George Floyd and is fully committed to ensuring that he will not have died in vain. The president has taken a commonsense approach to heal our nation. President Trump made it clear that he will protect all Americans, serve as an ally to peaceful protestors and always uphold law and order.

However, the protestors were determined to sow chaos and destruction all in the name of racial equality. Listen, during my first legislative session in the Georgia House of Representatives in 1993, I filed the first bill in my career to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag. But, I also understand the preservation of our history, including the good and the bad, and still, I bow to no one in my advocacy for the Black community.

But unlike other Washington politicians, this president actually backed up his words with actions. He signed an executive order on police reform, taking steps to build a better bridge between law enforcement men and women and their communities.

This landmark executive order encourages police to implement best practices to protect the people they serve. It sets the highest professional standards for law enforcement officers, while promoting peace and equality for all Americans. Under the order, the Trump administration will now prioritize federal grants from the U.S. Department of Justice to police departments that meet these high standards. Additionally, the order pushes forward the creation of a national database of police misconduct. This database will root out bad cops and help create accountability between police agencies.

In delivering his remarks last week, President Trump accomplished more in 40 minutes than Joe Biden has in 40 plus years. Where were Joe Biden and the previous administration for eight years in the White House on this issue? I will tell you: they were absent in unifying this country.

The Black unemployment rate under former Vice President Biden and the previous administration averaged a horrific 12.8 percent. The number of Black Americans in poverty barely fell during Biden’s administration, going down by just 145,000 over eight years.

By comparison, more than double that number, 350,000 Black Americans, were lifted out of poverty during just the first two years of the Trump administration.

Even before that, where was Biden for 36 years in the U.S. Senate on this issue? I will tell you: he was too busy shouting “my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.” That racial jungle he was referring to includes Black and brown Americans like me. Right now, President Trump is being defined as a racist by the media, when in reality Joe Biden is the full-blooded bigot.

Do not take my word for it, take then-Senator Joe Biden’s own words for it: “The truth is, every major crime bill since 1976 that’s come out of this Congress, every minor crime bill, has had the name of the Democratic senator from the State of Delaware: Joe Biden.” Now that Joe Biden is running for president in a “woke” Democratic Party in 2020, he is attempting to sweep his racist legacy under the rug. We cannot let him.

Joe Biden is directly responsible for the mass incarceration policies of the 1980s and 1990s, which decimated the Black community. Biden authored the 1994 Crime Bill, which imposed mandatory minimum sentences, disproportionately putting hundreds of thousands of young Black men in prison.

President Trump has worked to undo injustices within our criminal justice system.  He signed the Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act, or the “First Step Act,” which is the first major reform to our criminal justice system in a decade. Thanks to the president’s leadership on this issue, our criminal justice system is fairer and our communities are safer.

As Black Americans, we need to be aware of the clear choice in front of us. Joe Biden has betrayed Black Americans throughout his career in Washington, D.C. President Trump has spent his 3.5 years in office fighting to improve the lives of Black Americans.

We cannot be tricked again. Democrats like Biden will conveniently appear in our neighborhoods and pander to us from now until November. Why? Because they only care about Black people during election years.

The leadership of Joe Biden and President Donald Trump is being revealed for us all to see. Joe Biden is divisive and ineffective. Meanwhile, President Trump is unifying, pragmatic and fearless.

My 90-year-old mother passed away in April 2020. I learned my independent views from her.

I am black, and I am a Democrat, but, “I ain’t” voting for Joe Biden this November.

 

Representative Vernon Jones represents the citizens of District 91, which includes portions of DeKalb and Rockdale counties. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 2016 and currently serves on the Energy, Utilities & Telecommunications, Human Relations & Aging and Transportation committees.
