Trump University Case Shows That It’s Now Racist to Point to The Truth?

The Trump University case shows you and me just how messy our country has become. The judge in this case is a member of La Raza, whose lawyers defend illegal immigrants. The plaintiffs’ attorney is a Democrat political donor. The main plaintiff in the case was dismissed after it was discovered that she gave only ‘excellent’ ratings for the classes and when asked what they could do to make Trump University better, responded: “give more classes.”

In a thirteen-second portion of an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, Donald Trump suggested that the reason the case was not dismissed by the judge is because he is Mexican. Unfortunately, it now appears his inference has a great deal of relevance.

Republicans disavowing Trump must be suffering amnesia. For decades they have been fighting Democrats’ racially-charged advances in the judicial system. Democrats assert that minorities can’t be treated fairly in a system dominated by white judges. Even Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor suggested that her Hispanic background would help her make better decisions on the court. Pres. Obama inferred that anyone questioning his birthplace was doing so because of “my unique demographic.” Roughly translated, “if you oppose me it must be because I’m the first black president.” I suppose it couldn’t be that we just simply disagree?

What’s being lost in this hysteria is that this case cannot have a logical reason for its continuance unless there’s a bias. Over my career as a real estate brokerage executive, I coached/trained hundreds of new agents. They all took the same training and I personally conducted many of the classes. Some are still making six-figure incomes while others barely made it a full year in the industry. Training does not insure success. Discipline and perseverance do.

Nothing about the Trump University courses deviate from the many programs available to most real estate professionals (for thousands of dollars) of which the overwhelming majority of students still fail. It looks easy to get rich quick until reality proves otherwise.

For years, Democrats have attempted to assert that white judges are biased in favor of other whites and biased against minorities. Their policy and its primary objective has been to racialize America’s court system. Democrats have been intentional in moving the court system away from specific application of our laws and toward a culture that forgives the gravity of certain offensives based upon race or national origin. Now, that’s racist!

By keeping minorities convinced there is an evil ‘white monster’ lurking for them (in the system), Democrats become further empowered by their demagoguery.

What is even more disruptive is that Trump has committed the unthinkable crime of suggesting that our federal court system is somehow flawed. We all want to believe we live in a fair honest society and tend to be offended at any suggestion that we are deeply flawed and broken.

I can’t think of a greater bias than a judge who is an active member of a group like La Raza – who actively indulges the existence of illegal immigration. Without a doubt, it is a conflict of interest.

How was Trump first labeled a racist? He earned the label of ‘racist’ because he says that Mexico is “sending its worst…rapists and murderers.” The context of this statement has rarely been played. The media turned this statement into the assertion that Trump thought all (or most) Mexican immigrants were rapists and murderers. In hearing the entire speech, it was abundantly clear he was referring to illegal immigrants and the unusually high percentage of them that were committing crimes.

Many Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have rushed to the television cameras to disavow Trump’s comments and call for other Republicans to publicly oppose him. They have a hidden agenda. People like Graham distance themselves from Trump because they feel guilty for possessing some of the very beliefs the media has dishonestly conflated onto Trump. In other words, they don’t want to get caught.

I’m not sure that any human being is capable of being unbiased in such a politically charged society. We are a due for a serious reality check.

I admit an all-white jury may be more likely to issue a guilty verdict against a black defendant. A judge of Hispanic descent may be less likely to dismiss the case against a prominent public figure like Trump who’s made some comments that are directly against his own beliefs. I certainly believe that an African-American who grew up in the inner-city and in poverty who then became a successful lawyer (then a federal judge) would view a court-case much differently than a white federal judge from an affluent upbringing. How could either of them not have a clouded lens?

These biases are no different than the phenomenon of pricing your home to sell. As a seller, we always want more than the market will allow. As a buyer, we always wants to pay less. Humans are wired to be self-serving.

We have to accept that our society has become chocked full of biased people. These labels do nothing but further divide us. The reality is that our society is best when we have a difference of opinions and we can freely express ideas and not have our entire existence judged because of those expressions. Questioning a judge’s heritage as a it relates to bizarre rulings in a court case is not racist. However, it is the symptom of a society that makes it unpopular to state the underlying sentiments and biases that are destroying us.

I suppose we are much better served to be fake, only speak to what’s popular and to stand up for nothing. It’ll feel great being liked by everyone while they manipulate us into silence and submission.

Delusional people like this think the light at the end of the tunnel is anything but an oncoming train. Splat!

#Nevertrump Falling Apart. Some on way to #TrumpTrain.

In these videos, even Lindsey Graham, who once compared the choice of Donald Trump (and Ted Cruz) to picking between getting poisoned or shot in the head — migrating toward the idea of Donald Trump….


Trump: A Political Redemption and Reality Check.

Donald Trump has given people permission to actually say what they think. At first, when most of us meet someone who is uncommonly candid and highly combative, such as Trump, we tend to reject that person.

Trump’s political journey of the last eleven months been the sort of uprising we’ll likely never see again in our lifetime. For about a third of the country, Donald Trump was saying exactly what they were thinking and had been afraid to say. For many his style was very offensive. For others, what he was saying was both shocking and troubling.

Trump has been unwilling to change who he is to fit the political narrative or to capitulate to political operatives. The political establishment rarely faces a candidate unwilling to fall in line. Therefore, Trump has been an existential threat to their political existence. Much of the visceral behavior involved in the Republican primary has been the battle between the political insurgents, the voters and the establishment. Unfortunately, much of it was conflated onto Trump as a person.

As we unpack the last eleven months, we are beginning to see something I have been writing and speaking about on the radio since the moment Trump entered the race. Authentic people who act with resolve, confidence and an open-mind almost always win. After a very tough primary, Trump has shown an amazing humility to reach out to people who have recently been his arch rivals: Sen. Lindsey Graham, Speaker of the House – Paul Ryan, Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, Sen. Leader Mitch McConnell, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Dr. Ben Carson and many more.

One-by-one, Donald Trump has been re-uniting the Republican Party. For those that say Donald Trump is a narcissist, they clearly miss the fact that he’s now the one acting with the greatest of humility in victory. It takes quite a set of leadership skills to be able to reach out to someone like Lindsey Graham. Graham has stated that choosing Donald Trump for president would be like choosing between getting shot in the head and drinking poison. He went on to say “I also cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump because I do not believe he is a reliable Republican conservative nor has he displayed the judgment and temperament to serve as Commander in Chief.”

Friday, on CNN, Lindsey Graham amended his comments: “Well, my criticism has been wide and it’s been deep, but we did have a good conversation [Trump and I]. He asked good questions and I think he’s reconsidering a little bit about what to do in Syria. I don’t know if Hillary Clinton — what will Hillary Clinton do different than President Obama? President Obama has no strategy to destroy ISIL….It is uncomfortable to say that somebody is not qualified [Trump] who beat you. So the bottom line is the American people need to choose wisely. What will Hillary Clinton do different than Barack Obama?”

While this is still far from an endorsement, it’s even further away from the negative comments Graham less than a month ago. My criticism of Lindsey Graham has been extensive having lived in South Carolina for 17 years. I’ve never been a fan. However, the evolution of Graham’s commentary as a result of a phone call between he and Trump is extraordinary. In fact, it shows the kind of acumen, intelligence and persuasive ability I’ve been writing about since the beginning. I applaud both Graham and Trump for these efforts to make amends.
There is a lot of angst and anger in this country. For many, Trump has either been the voice for that anger or the fuel. Either way, his campaign has represented a cleansing of pent-up emotional resentments. Unpopular commentary that is deeply felt in the hearts and minds of Americans has now been expressed openly for months as part of the political debate. It’s as if we’ve all gone to confession and, for once, we have all been heard. Harsh debate can lead to lasting unity by purging resentments.

A shocking number of #nevertrump people in the Republican Party are coalescing around Donald Trump. While the Democrats are in turmoil with state leaders receiving dozens of death threats and Bernie Sanders not backing down, Republicans are beginning to unify around Trump. The national polls now showing Trump leading against Hillary Clinton and winning in Ohio.

Even the far-left liberal-media are making statements that are jaw-dropping. On Friday, Chris Matthews said this shortly after the National Rifle Associations’ endorsement of Donald Trump: “I think this is a cowboy country in spirit, self-reliance, drive your own car, people don’t like mass transportation. Drive around in their own car with their wife or husband or girlfriend and like to be on the road and that self-reliance of that gun. I don’t have that instinct. I know it’s out there and very much a part of our history . It just is. It’s in the constitution and in our history. We are uniquely pro-gun as a country, not like the Japanese or Chinese or English or French or the Germans. This country is unique! Today, we will see Donald Trump point to that.” Hearing those words on MSNBC (especially from Matthews) is an example of the effect Donald Trump is having on our political conversation. The light of reality is at least shining again.

Republicans have a long journey to November and face a Clinton-machine willing to do anything criminal, immoral or unethical to win. This presents a dangerous lack of moral compass for our nation.

This election is not about the Republican or Democrat party to the American people. It’s about mopping up the bloodbath that has been created by the political establishment in both parties. The silent majority has sat quietly while political fools have destroyed our nation. Trump has simply brought us a tremendous reality check. He also brought us political redemption.

Hillary’s Risk of Stroke PLUS Toxic Drugs That Cause Confusion

It’s nearly every week now that Hillary Clinton has a substantial coughing attack. Of course, this observation is being dismissed as politics-as-usual.  Hillary-supporters accuse conservatives of conflating these issues into her being unfit for the presidency.  I think conservatives (at least) can agree – from a character, integrity and positions-standpoint she is definitely unfit to be president. More importantly, she may be physically unfit as well.

There have been many demands to have her Wall Street speeches released.  We already know she’s a hypocrite. Those speeches would likely just reveal that she says one thing to Wall Street and something completely different to Main Street.   Therefore, there’s no secret as to what in those speeches.  That effort is a waste of time.  What is secret is the truth about Hillary Clinton’s health. Is she a ticking time bomb of health crises waiting to explode in the White House?

In just the last few years, Hillary has had a number of health concerns. The latest bout of health-issues involve coughing fits that have been ongoing for some time (nearly four months). In 2009, she suffered a fracture during a fall. In late 2012 she fainted and the impact caused a concussion. Then there was the blood clot discovered in December 2012. She had to take a month long absence at that time from her role as Secretary of State. We learned in August 2015 that Hillary is on Coumadin, a blood thinner used to prevent blood clots. Along with the blood thinner she also takes Armour Thyroid for a thyroid problem. It is well documented that her husband, former Pres. Bill Clinton commented on her recovery taking as many as six months after her fall.

What’s not clear is if her bout of health issues are related to the fall.  Or, was the fall simply a symptom of larger issues?

I’m not trying to diagnose Hillary Clinton or play doctor in this article. I’m simply pointing out that before we seriously consider this individual for president, we might want to consider the gravity of her health problems and her ability to complete her term and physically endure the stress involved with the presidency.

Her diagnosis being called ‘a blood clot’ is another example of the liberal media covering up the truth in favor of their prized candidate.  Hillary Clinton’s actual diagnosis was Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVT).   This is a little more serious than a standard blood clot. 

The American stroke Association reports that “a second CVT or another thrombotic episode occurred in 20% of patients, stressing the need in a minority of cases for long-term anticoagulation.”   Further, mortality from a CVT can range from 13 to 48% depending on its stage at the time of diagnosis.   In addition, there are a host of complications and symptoms from this condition.  There is research that suggests coughing can result as one of those complications or symptoms.   To be clear, I’m not insinuating her coughing is related. I’m suggesting it is a valid question that should be answered by Hillary Clinton and her doctors before we vote.   

To be fair, her cough could be the result of straining her voice by yelling at so many campaign rallies and primary speeches.  Her erratic, stressful and strained, upward-inflection delivery certainly could be the cause.  For me alone, the thought of listening to that for four years is enough to shape my vote. 

According to medical experts, regarding the Hillary Clinton CVT, they predicted in 2013, she will have a full recovery.  That is certainly the narrative we’ve been led to believe in 2016.  Cough by cough I’m becoming suspicious as to what is being hidden. 

Another inconvenient fact is that Hillary’s father, Hugh Rodham, died of a stroke in 1993.   Coumadin, which Hillary is prescribed, is used to treat an underlying condition for patients at high risk of stroke.  The Alliance for National Health reported that Coumadin is “one of the leading causes of emergency room fatalities.  In 2011, it was the subject of 1,106 serious adverse event reports, including seventy-two deaths—and that is just in hospitals!” 

In addition, one of the major side effects of Coumadin is confusion.   The next time she questions Republicans’ judgment she may want to contemplate the drugs in pairing hers.

When you combine Hillary’s string of health problems, her nearly nonstop coughing and her age it is surprising we have not had more dialogue on these very important questions.

The actual number representing someone’s age isn’t reliable for full consideration as to who should be the next president.   Hillary Clinton would be 69 if she’s elected as president. Donald Trump would be 70. But have you noticed most of the presidential candidates have had just one bout of the flu or a bad cold during the race (except Donald Trump)?   Clinton is the stand alone candidate who appears to be battling a cold or health-issue almost consistently.  By comparing Clinton and Trump, you see a clear distinction between actual age (which is nearly identical) and biological age.  In fact, using this metric, even Bernie Sanders appears to be much younger than Hillary at the age of 74. 

Regardless of the prognosis of Hillary’s many health issues in the past five years, it is very clear that of all of the candidates (Cruz, Kasich, Trump, Clinton, Sanders), Hillary Clinton is by far, biologically, the oldest.  In fact, she appears to be the only candidate biologically older than her actual age. 

Should Trump be the Republican nominee, I can guarantee this story is ‘to be continued.’

I’m Sick of Hearing Para Espanol O Prima Dos. Enough Already!

I’m fully prepared for the backlash this article will cause.   I will be called ‘intolerant’ and many other names to describe someone who is conservative and dares to tell the truth on polarizing issues. 

I’m sick of “para espanol o prima dos.”   In English this means “for Spanish, press two.”   I’m not sick of this phrase because it bothers me personally or because I have anything against anyone speaking Spanish.  I’m sick of it because of what it’s inviting and what it’s doing to people in this country.

Let me explain. Then you can call me a bigot.  This past week I had a troubling situation with my son and daughter’s school.  So I called the school district main-office to speak to someone  about it.  I reached the automated greeting menu, followed by another 45 seconds worth of Spanish instruction.  I realize the heart of this dual-language menu is to assist those who don’t speak fluent English. It’s part of our “be accepting to all people and all national origins” hoopla plaguing this country.

After listening to the Atlanta Public schools Spanish menu, it seemed to me more tailored to the Mexican population than that of Georgian.  I feel sorry for the children of a parent who require a Spanish menu in order to navigate their child’s school system.

Let’s think about this. You want your child to succeed., right?  You want them to be prepared for living in America.  Their success is contingent upon being fully immersed into the English, American culture and being able to understand how people around you think, feel, communicate and operate. If the parents of a school-aged child in 2016 can’t speak fluent English then that child is likely being raised in an unassimilated household.   Without a miracle, that child is destined for failure.

This phenomenon is adding to our welfare state contributing to the entrapment of many of our minority citizens and increasing taxpayers’ entitlement-costs.  The average underprivileged child has been exposed to 30 million fewer words by the time they enter kindergarten as compared to an privileged child in America.  We then tap our productive resources to neutralize this tragedy through government assistance. 

Knowing two languages, especially Spanish and English, is an advantage. But, growing up in a household where members need assistance understanding English in order to conduct business or communicate with a child’s school is sad. 

From driving down the road, to taxicabs, business websites, door signs, telephone menus to  government facilities, we are saying to Hispanics it’s okay to live in an English-speaking country, unassimilated, and without a full understanding of the culture around you.  Each instance that we cater to such disadvantages we encourage people to use those disadvantages as a crutch.  Further, we discourage the incentive to have them step out of their comfort zone and fully integrate into the English-world around them.

Over my years as a real estate broker and in the process of selling thousands of homes, I’ve served a very diverse crowd of clients and customers. Many of my great clients have been Hispanic, Asian and Middle Eastern.  Not coincidentally, most of them have been very assimilated into Western culture, have a strong command of the English language and will openly share opinions of what they like and dislike about America.  Ultimately, the overwhelming majority of them love America and have become part of America, while respecting elements of their culture of origin.  These clients were all very successful.  They did not succeed by transporting most of their culture into America expecting us to change for them.  They learned how to successfully work with us. 

I’ve observed many foreign-born minorities seeking church or government assistance who struggle significantly.  They struggle understanding our culture, our language and they are collectivists. 

Cultural-collectivism is essentially the process of putting a group of people ahead of the individuals.   There is nothing wrong with practicing collectivism in a collectivist society.  But, the United States is anything but collectivist.  We are an individualistic society where people must use judgment, think for themselves and step ‘outside the box’ in order to succeed.  You can’t just ‘go with the flow.’

When people from collectivist societies such as Mexico immigrate and are not aware of this significant difference, they fail.  They become a prisoner of entitlements and government assistance in order to survive. 

Some of the tweets, private emails and comments this article will generate calling me intolerant, a bigot, racist or evil are in fact the reason tens of millions of Americans continue to struggle in uninterrupted, generational poverty.  These name-calling commentators are too weak emotionally to respect these immigrants, for once, and tell them the truth.

What is that truth?  Unless you improve your dialect, garner a command of the English language and vehemently study our culture and history, your experience in America may be no better than that of your own country.  You will struggle. 

Oh the hate gets worse!  I dared mention dialect. Let’s face it.  There are bigots and racists in our country and rather than trying to change the hearts and ignorant-minds of those people, our energy is best focused on helping those who struggle, remedy the root causes of their struggles. 

When I first entered radio broadcasting in 1994, it was like being stabbed in the heart when a Nashville program-director told me I sounded like a southern hick. He went further. He said you’ll never make it in this business until you lose this accent.  That stung!  He then picked me up off the floor telling me I had a great voice.  He told me to practice every day if I really wanted to be on the radio.  Months later, he put me there. 

That advice and resulting skills has indirectly led to major financial successes for me. 

Instead of calling me a bigot, for writing this, call me a truth-teller.
