Trump/Hitler Similarities

We often hear Trump talk about his similarities to Lincoln, but I wonder if people know just how similar he is to Hitler. History was one of my favorite subjects in college, I studied both American and European historical periods. In the beginning, Trump appeared to have some Lincoln similarities. One of the main reasons the Civil War was fought was because slavery moved into states that were free states. Plantation owners were slowly moving into states that were free of slavery due to the Missouri Compromise. When these plantation owners moved to free states (illegally) to take over land, they would force working people into poverty.

Obama and Trump both saw similarities to the displacement of American workers which is what prompted stricter immigration laws. Prior to Obama coming into office President Bush and President Fox of Mexico encouraged dealings which led the way for illegal immigration to boom in America. Due to the economic crisis that took over around the end of the Bush years, people were tired. They then voted for Obama because at this point, unemployment was horrific.

Obama worked on immigration issues and he also worked on getting some of the hardest hit industries back on their feet. By the time Trump came in office, he was coming into a situation that was already in its healing process. We had a lot of jobs that were open, but sadly not a lot of people were trying to get back to work. https://www.factcheck.org/2016/07/obamas-numbers-july-2016-update/

So, after Obama, Trump enters office. He continues to build on what Obama has already placed into motion and then he doubles down on immigration. While his talking points in the beginning sound a lot like Obama and Lincoln, his actions seem to take a different turn into his presidency. He wages economic wars with rivals and secures business relationships from abroad with various countries. Some of those relationships come into question because of his businesses. Trump then puts tax laws in place to offer relief to those who earn the most while placing boundaries between the poor and well off. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/29/trump-suburban-voters-will-no-longer-be-bothered-by-low-income-housing.html

Not only is he placing boundaries in terms of where people are able to live, but he increased sentences on things that were once considered misdemeanors. https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/criminal-justice/reports/2020/02/03/480028/fact-sheet-trump-says-one-thing-another-criminal-justice/ To the naked eye, we hear the word reform and we get excited. However, after you read into the results of the reform, the excitement soon disappears.

As of today, we have Trump taking away unity training which helps to loosen the chains of racism and he has introduced a new form of History for our children. These are things that Hitler did when he was trying to perform a mindwipe on the citizens in Germany. If you are unfamiliar with the term mindwipe, it is a reset of everything you know. Hitler had his own group of people protecting his gatherings before he turned into the mass murderer we all know. Trump has also been quoted telling his Proud Boys to stand by. Trump is even on record talking about getting his own network together to go against FOX News because they did not spread more of his political messages to the public.

With all of these problematic behaviors, why were there so many people who voted for Trump? Could it be that we have a large number of Americans who want some form of a dictatorship? If we are not careful, Trump could send America to its first single party dictatorship which would shatter the America we know and love. Currently, Trump and his allies are trying to corrupt the sacred right of voting. They are using lies and anything else that they can use to have legal votes thrown out. A lot of the votes in Arizona that were labeled fraud came from military families that held that state as their home of record. Just a few articles to show you where we are on keeping up with misinformation.

Sadly, the list goes on and on. https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/525583-trumps-fraudulent-claims-about-voter-fraud There is a different lie each day and they keep getting thrown out of court. https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-politics-virus-outbreak-campaigns-22665ea3884c47f883b416e4bd03bf54 At this point, the behavior is a clear indicator that Trump is trying to use the courts to take away Biden’s Presidency. Due to the fact that his allies are mimicking the same claims, we can only conclude that they are part of this attempt to overthrow our pollical system. So, keep informed and stay safe.

Get ready for a look inside the pledge of allegiance

Tomorrow we will be looking at how our stance on standing or not standing could be skewed due to our perceptions. I can’t wait to dive in. See ya soon 💕💗💕💗💕

Does standing for something that America was founded on mean worshipping and image, or is it more important to respect the sovereignty of the image?

America’s Great Decline

Today we live in a new America. We are seeing things in the news that we’ve never seen before. We are seeing armies marching our streets and armed men kidnapping people under the orders of Trump. While all of this is going on, our communities are being lit on fire by COVID-19.

Nothing seems innocent anymore. We no longer trust each other, I fear for the future. In some instances many of us seem to be on edge due to a feeling of unrest, which seems to get more uncomfortable as the days go by. A few days ago my daughter and I went walking in our park. I noticed a van parked under a tree and a feeling that I haven’t felt in ages crept up once again. I felt fear for my safety and my daughter’s safety because the person sitting on the ground happened to be a white woman with a dog.

I immediately grabbed onto my daughter and pulled her away from the area. After I made it home, I processed my feelings and started thinking about another time those kind of feelings showed up. It was right after 9/11 when a row full of Middle Eastern men started filling into the seats next to me. I went into a near panic mode and tried to friend the men to death! By the time the flight was over people thought I was married to the man next to me. I vowed to never again let that type of irrational fear dictate my actions.

Sadly, in the park, I repeated that process. However, this time I didn’t even try to go up and spark a conversation, I simply raced off with my child before words could be spoken. Maybe I will see the lady again at the park minus her dog and then I can say hello. I will be eagerly awaiting another chance to be the person I want to be.

Fear is the fuel for prejudice, so we must fight against letting fear overtake our hearts. Good Night.

Stumbling On Hidden Truths : Meghan And Harry

Welcome to my blog once again and today we’re going to talk about my girl: Meghan markle AKA Duchess of our Hearts!

Love!!

As many of you have probably found out by now Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry have decided take a few inches back from the royal lifestyle. If you have followed the monarchy like I have, then you know Queen Elizabeth II has a lineage of relationships built on love.

From Queen Victoria I to Queen Elizabeth II love has been a common theme in this family. If you are wondering how or why Queen Elizabeth II gave approval for Meghan markle and Prince Harry to live outside of the throne look no further then her father’s brother who was once King of England.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle

It should come as no surprise that Prince Harry is committed to that same kind of unyielding love when it comes to his wife and child. I think people forget the Prince Harry it’s not directly in line for the throne. Since Prince William has two small sons it really takes a lot of the pressure off of Harry and lets him focus more on his lifestyle.

There are people who are very upset about the couple’s wish to move outside of tradition. I support the Queens opinion on the situation because everybody have a light. Perhaps Prince Harry and Meghan’s light will be better shown outside of the UK.

In my opinion, both Meghan and Harry are doing what’s necessary to raise her son in a therapeutic environment. I often wonder about our president’s children and how they fair. We watch the children of our presidents mature whole terms, sometimes up to 8 years.

Do we even know of their descendants today?

In case of royal families their children never seem to get out of the spotlight, imagine how damning that can be if the spotlight seems to be frequently jaded? For a lot of people, I think the UK seems like it was a Utopia for minorities, if you are not from the UK. According to the history books slavery ended in the European countries before it ever ended in the United States. We even had black people who went to live abroad to get away from hate crimes here at home.

I think the treatment that Meghan Markle has received has been somewhat shocking for Americans due to our perceptions on the UK. The media from the onslaught of Megan’s pregnancy down to probably the last 24 hours has been nothing but critical of Meghan Markle and Harry. I know people don’t want to use the term bullying because bullying is such a ugly word, but the media has been vicious. I’ve not seen the type of treatment The Duchess and the Duke of Sussex encountered passed on any other member of the Royal family.

Ironically, this was the family who could survive such a feat due to their strong history of listening to their hearts. In a way, we are just watching history repeat itself! Love gives us the courage to move when others would have been immobilized in sorrow.
