If this is White Supremacy, Bring it On!

Is Trump a racist/supremacist? The accusations keep coming that the President is a racist who encourages white supremacy—and in the aftermath of the New Zealand mosque attacks that left 50 dead and dozens wounded, that somehow Trump is responsible. When was asked if he saw the white supremacy as a mounting problem, the President said: “I don’t really. I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess.”

The media finds this troubling. And although Trump expressed sympathy for the victims and disgust with the actions of the shooter, it wasn’t enough. However, actions always speak louder than words:

1. The President donates his annual salary of $400,000 to federal agencies. This quarter, he gave $100,000 to the Department of Homeland Security to help keep all Americans safe.

2. Trump changed policies for dealing with ISIS, and it has been reduced to one tent city in Baghouz, Syria. This is after just two years—while President Obama tried and failed for most of his presidency. In July 2017, ISIS lost control of Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq. Three months later, ISIS lost their capital city of Raqqa. The fighters fled to Deir ez-Zor in Eastern Iraq, and that fell in November 2017.

  • Trump streamlined the approval process for airstrikes
  • He gave generals on the ground more power
  • The tactics changed and rather than forcing the enemy to pick up and move, troops began surrounding them
  • Special Ops was allowed to work closely with Iraqi partners.

3. Trump’s style of “supremacy” has put minorities in the best place they’ve ever been regarding employment. In May of 2018, black unemployment was the lowest ever, and that number, 5.9 percent, was repeated again in November. The improvement for Hispanics was similar; 4.4 percent unemployment in December 2018, a historical low.

4. Extremist killings are down by 39 percent since Trump took office. According to the Anti-Defamation League, no friend of the President, the portion of killings related to extremist ideology has declined. Under Obama, there were 72 killings in 2015 and 70 in 2016. Under Trump, there were 37 in 2017 and 50 in 2018. The Fake News media conveniently leaves off Obama’s totals in order to say “Extremist Killings are on the Rise Under Trump!”

5. The President is protecting people of all races, colors, and creeds who are legal citizens of the US.

  • He imposed a ban on travel from six countries that can’t properly vet travelers. The Fake News would have you believe that he “banned travel for Muslims.” The truth is, he put a block on five majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen—and non-Muslim North Korea and Venezuela. The ban does not include Chad, Iraq and Sudan, which are primarily Muslim nations. The Supreme Court upheld his ban because the justices agree that these nations are not cooperating with U.S. officials, have terrorist activity, and don’t have the technology to properly document their own travelers.
  • The Supreme Court supported President Donald Trump in a case brought against the US government by non-citizens (some held green cards and others are illegals). The case involved detaining criminals who are here illegally, were found guilty and placed in prison, and detained after they finished their sentences. The illegals/green card holders argued they shouldn’t be held for deportation, but the Supreme Court disagreed.

And yet, there seems to be a slight double standard.

People who criticize Islam, or merely question its philosophy, routinely lose their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts, get censored by YouTube, and as in the case of Judge Jeanine Pirro, get yanked from Fox News. But Muslims can be anti-semitic without repercussions. Ilhan Omar, who was elected to represent Minneapolis, continues to tweet anti-semitic posts and also rants about the dangers of white supremacy. This is the same woman who campaigned for leniency on behalf of a fellow Minnesotan Somali who tried to get to Syria to join ISIS.

Instead of punishing Omar by removing her from the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee, Speaker Pelosi explained that Omar doesn’t understand the weight of her words. Does that make Pelosi a racist for suggesting that a college-educated, mature black female lawmaker doesn’t understand the language?

Meanwhile, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was removed from his committee for asking during an interview, “When did the terms ‘white nationalist,’ ‘white supremacist’ and ‘western civilization’ become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our civilization?”

Some lawmakers called for his resignation.

Why this Matters: This President fulfilling the campaign promises that got him elected. Those on the other side would like to make sure that doesn’t happen in 2020. The latest push is to drop the voting age to 16, give everyone who is geographically present in the US the “right” to vote and to be counted in the census, thus giving the anti-Trump areas of the country greater representation.

These types of bills may pass in the House, but they will certainly be killed in the Senate. For now. The strategy seems to be to fill the headlines and congressional calendar with bad ideas. If given enough good press and touted enough times, the public becomes indoctrinated. Bad ideas succeed when called “great,” and repeated often.

How to Pray: For new media platforms to emerge that will refrain from censorship. Pray that the Truth, which is more powerful than anything man can do, will make us free from the lies.

Rep. Devin Nunes is suing Twitter for their lies and censorship. Pray God will use this lawsuit for His own purposes.

Pray for President Trump, his cabinet, policy makers at the national, state, and local level to make wise decisions. Pray for the safety of our armed forces, law enforcers, and first responders who put their lives on the line for us every day.

Pray for the freedom of victims of human rights abuses and that they will be justified.

Ps. 75:10 – All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
