Please don’t be scared of President Trump: here’s my olive branch.

by Dr. Monroe Mann, PhD, Esq, MBA, LLM, ME

Yes, I voted for Trump.

But today I write this as an American.  Specifically, as an American who knows the pain that half of America is feeling right now.  And as an American who wants to help build across the divide.

I wrote a text to some Hillary supporter friends of mine earlier.  Letting them know I still loved them, and that I was grateful for their friendship.  One was surprised that I wasn’t gloating that Trump had won, because all of his friends on Facebook were shoving it in his face.

This is what I wrote in response: “It’s funny you mention that.  Being off Facebook and Twitter [I deleted my accounts last year] has made me a better man.  It forces me to think more before making jerk reactions (Trump will need to learn that too, and I think his victory speech showed that he is becoming a better man too).  But I thought about gloating.  I really did.  But I realized that Hillary’s supporters are hurting and crying so much.  So painful.  I don’t want to add to that.  Their pain alone is already too much to bear.  And they are so scared that Trump is going to destroy this country and their way of life.  I want to be part of the solution and not the problem.  I reached out and offered my condolences and friendship to those I knew might be feeling pretty low, as I did to you.  I want everyone to give him a chance.  The best way to do that is to be restrained, polite, and empathetic.  Because I know that I would like your support and friendship if Trump had lost.  And he could have.  Up to the 11th hour.  I wouldn’t want to be kicked while I was down.  Maybe ten years ago, I would not have acted this way.  But today, it’s the type of person I tried to be.  We are all Americans.  Democrat and Republican and Independent.”

So today, I want to share three reasons why I believe you should give President-Elect Trump a chance.  I offer these as a measure of true friendship, from one countryman to another, with no agenda whatsoever.  And as sincerely as I possibly can.

  1. Please click this link:  https://www.donaldjtrump.com/policies/   This is a link to his campaign website’s exhaustive list of every policy he intends to implement.  Please, before you spend another day crying, first go here.  Read the truth about the policies he intends to implement–many may pleasantly surprise you.  You may not agree with all of them, but I have a feeling you will be less scared about what the future holds.  Moving forward knowing the FACTS of what he stands for, rather than speculation, will do a lot to calm your nerves  Do not read the newspapers.  Do not watch Fox News or CNN or MSNBC.  Just click that link above and read the facts from the official website.
  2. Please remember that I (and many other conservative Americans) lost in 2008, and again in 2012.  When Barack Obama was elected the first time, we thought our country was doomed.  When he was elected a second time, we despaired more than ever before.  Barack Obama to us was what Donald Trump is to you: SCARY AND UNFATHOMABLE. (I am merely talking about policies).  And yet, 8 years later… the country is still here.  Republicans are still here.  Democrats are still here.  And you are still here.  It sucks.  I know.  And words mean little right now.  But I want you to know that you will survice, and more importantly, America will survive.  Trump is going to build on what Obama started, and continue to fix America’s healthcare system.  Trump is going to build up our military and destroy ISIS to make our nation safer.  And yes, maybe he will deport some people who are here illegally, and yes, maybe he will build a wall, but he has repeatedly said that if these individuals are non-violent, and agree to promote American values, they can return… legally… through our immigration system.  Sure, some of these things may not be politically appealing to you, but I assure you, he will not destroy the world or cause WWIII.  As I have said to many people, you may think he’s crazy, but if so, then so do our enemies.  And we all know how we act around these types of peopoe: YOU DON’T PROVOKE A CRAZY PERSON.  Do you?  I don’t believe he is crazy, but let’s say he is.  If so, he is probably the safest person to have the nuclear codes because the rest of the world has no idea what he will do if they provoke him… so they won’t.  In some ways I jest, but overall, I’m telling the truth.   Mark my words: Just as I survived 8 years under Obama, you too will survive a mere 4 years under Trump.  And if he doesn’t do a good job, that’s why we have elections.  Don’t be angry at this result; instead, start preparing NOW for Election 2020.  Take your frustration and anger… and channel it into productivity towards the next election.  Because the race has already started.  And you do your party no good if you continue to mope around complaining.  What’s done is done.  He is Mr. President.  But if you work hard, you can put up a fight in 2020 and perhaps be consoling me!

  3. Be inspired.   Be inspired by all of the candidates.  I am totally serious.  Keep reading.I was inspired by Hillary Clinton tonight, as she graciously conceded while at the same time, motivated and inspired young women to realize how far she had come, and how far they can go.  We are going to have a female president in the near future, and why?  Because Hillary Clinton has paved the way.  This defeat for Clinton tonight was–to her–I can only imagine–DEBILITATING.  She has spent the last 30 years of her life working towards this.  And it turned at the 11th hour.  And yet, she gave the most amazing speech of her career.  A speech that showed me how to handle myself publicly when faced with a horrible upset of great magnitude.

    I was also inspired by Barack Obama, who shared the story in his speech of his transition into power in 2008, when George W. Bush graciously shook his hand, and showed him the ropes.  Obama went on to offer (and indeed demand of his staff) the same honorable treatment of Trump, once he begins the transition tomorrow.  Thanks to Obama, Trump has been provided legitimacy from day one.  I have learned from Obama that no matter the disappointment, and no matter the disagreements, there are some things greater than personal bones of contention.  In this case: the peaceful and legitimate transfer of power.  If Obama wanted, he could have made things very difficult and awkward for Trump.  But for the nation, he chose to take the upper hand, and I applaud him for it.  Not coincidentally, I too believe this was one of Obama’s best speeches.

    Not to be outdone, I was greatly inspired by Bernie Sanders, who proved to us all that passion, SINCERITY, and a plan can take you so far in life.  I know how much he cares for Americans, for America, and for the agenda he fought so hard for.  His sincerity won over the American people.  And I hate to admit it, but won me over too.  I would never have voted for him, but I respect the man tremendously.  Hats off to you Mr. Sanders.

    And I am inspired by Donald Trump (and all of America should be too).  Why?  Because he showed us that no matter what people say, no matter how bad the reviews, no matter who is turned against you, no matter how much the ridicule, and no matter WHAT the odds… you can still win.  No.  Matter.  What.  I know half of the country doesn’t like the man.  But I urge you all (as I am) to be inspired by him.  As many of you know, I have a part-time life in show business.  The rejection I have experienced over the last 20 years is simply devastating.  But… IN NO WAY AS HORRIBLE AS WHAT TRUMP HAD TO ENDURE FOR THESE LAST 18 ODD MONTHS.  Just think of all the times he should have, could have, would have quit.  HE NEVER QUIT.  No matter how bad it got.  HE NEVER QUIT.  ALL THE POLLS WERE WRONG.  THE MEDIA WAS ALL WRONG. ALL OF MY SHOWBIZ FRIENDS WERE WRONG.  EVERYONE WAS WRONG.  And you know that everyone told him to quit.  From day one.  But.  He.  Did.  Not.  Quit.  The little engine that could.  “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.”  And he did.  Thanks to Donald Trump, from this day until the day I die (and maybe not even then), I will make every effort to NEVER ever ever Ever EVER ever EVER again doubt myself.  Remember “Never Trump”?  Now in my mind, it’s the answer to a question.  “Quit?”  “Never. -Trump.”

    ****

    I know the pain is still there.
     And as Hillary said, that pain will be there for a while.  But I hope that these words I have shared with you show that we Trumpers aren’t so bad.  And neither is he.  Please give him a chance.  Please visit his website and read his policies.  Please remember that it’s not the end of the world… or the country.  If it’s not the result you wanted, get off you ass now and figure out how to win it next time.  And please remember the most important part of all: be inspired by it all.  By those who won, and yes, even those who lost.  There are valuable life (and patriotic) lessons for us all to learn from it all.

    God bless America.

    P.S. – If you’re a Trump supporter, please forward this to those in mourning.
    P.P.S. – I have been awake for over 36 hours straight and I am exhausted.  Gnight America.  Gnight world.

The 10 Reasons Why Donald Trump Will Win The Presidential Election.

Contrary to all the naysayers, here are the top ten reasons why I believe Donald Trump is going to win the election (from least important to most important):

10) VOTING IS ANONYMOUS; POLLS TYPICALLY ARE NOT.  Most polling is done via telephone or in person.  Well, a new app just came out that has anonymous polling.  Trump wins in a landslide.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2016/08/13/app-maker—trump-win-election/88640044/
http://redalertpolitics.com/2016/08/15/tech-entrepreneur-app-shows-trump-going-win-polls-wrong/

This one poll cannot be deemed a total game changer, but it did encourage me to ask “why”?  Why were these poll results so dramatically different?  It suddenly hit me like a thunder bolt: the poll was anonymous, unlike virtually every poll conducted by the media and regular pollsters.  And guess what else is anonymous?  VOTING.

In other words, any poll that is not anonymous should probably be suspect.  Why?  People who have their name attached to something do not speak completely freely.  We all know this from personal experience.

What does this mean?  It seems to point to the very real possibility that most people support Trump… but are afraid to say it publicly.  I think there is a silent majority, and unlike any we have seen before, and I truly believe that they are going to determine this election.

9) TRUMP IS TURNING AROUND.  PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO FIND A REASON TO VOTE FOR HIM BECAUSE THEY DISLIKE HILLARY SOOOO MUCH.
Trump is not the most amazing candidate in the history of politics by a long shot, but… neither is Hillary.  Polls continually show that they don’t trust Hillary, and Trump is undeniably in the midst of a turn-around.  For a guy who has never run for public office, he is doing incredibly well.  His message is reaching more people and his gawkiness is starting to fade: he is absolutely becoming presidential.  While the turnaround won’t be easy, it is starting, and I think it’s going to start picking up speed in the next few weeks.
8) WIKILEAKS IS GOING TO RELEASE MORE DAMAGING DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON
There is no question that there are more damaging hacked documents to be dumped soon, and probably right before the election.  The NSA has already been hacked and the DNC has been hacked (you have been reading the news, right?) and soon, there’s more coming down the pike.  Read these articles:
7) THE MEDIA HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE BIASED THAN IT IS TODAY.
The mass media, though they would like to believe they represent the common man’s belief, do not in any way represent the common man’s belief.
Why this unprecedented bias?  Simple: the mass media (which is the media of the left) just doesn’t like Trump and is so scared because they know he may win.
And yet… even the leftie media groups are now changing their tune and starting to cover negative stories about Hillary Clinton (see below).  Why?  Because they are starting to realize that their covering up of Hillary’s parade of scandals is starting to look bad and threatening to forever tarnish the reputation they spent so long building.
6) I STILL BELIEVE MOST AMERICANS ARE NOT COMPLETELY STUPID OR TOTALLY AMORAL AND DEEP DOWN, THEY KNOW TRUMP IS NOT A RACIST.
A friend of mine noted this fact the other day: many people call Trump racist and then say they are moving to Canada if Trump wins.  That’s curious.  Why not Mexico?  Is Mexico not good enough for them?  Too much crime?  Too much drugs?  Too many Mexicans?  Seems a little racist to immediately say Canada and not consider Mexico, does it not?
Here’s a better fact: just two weeks ago, a historically black church down south decided to dump Hillary and endorse Trump.  Go ahead and watch the CNN clip, and then watch the video from the endorsement from The Historic Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries:
I admit Trump says things that are unvarnished truth, but that doesn’t make him a racist.  He never said all mexicans are racists and murderers and it’s upsetting to me that people are so stupid or lazy as to continually misquote him.  He said that Mexico (and other Latin American countries) is sending their rapists and murderers over the border.  And guess what: they are.  How so?  By not keeping them in jail, by not policing their border, and by not making it lucrative to stay in Mexico.
I worked as a public defender in New York for two years.  At least 1/4 of my clients were illegals, and 95% were from Latin America.  Many of them have snuck over the border more than THREE TIMES.  How, I asked them.  “I just walk over the border”.  Whaaaatttt???!!!!!  Yeah, we need the wall.  No question.
Now, these clients of mine were accused of what?   Identity theft?  Not usually.  Check fraud?  Nope.  Violent crimes: murder, attempted murder, rape, armed robbery, and the list goes on.  Do you really want these people in your country?  I don’t.  Call me a racist if you want, but all I want to do is keep people who have no legal right to be in this country… out.  Same for Trump.
A large portion of crime in our country is committed by illegal hispanics.  Is that racist?  No, it’s fact.  Accept it and let’s enact the solution: keep illegals out.  It’s the law.  And voila: crime in America drops.
As for Muslims (men, women, children)?  I was in Iraq as a soldier.  Guess who was trying to kill me?  Muslim men.  Muslim women.  And even Muslim children.  The majority of terrorist acts today are committed by Muslims.  Again, is that racist?  No, it’s fact.  Accept it and let’s enact the solution: vet any Muslim coming into this country.  Is that profiling?  YES!  Yes it is!  And I embrace it fully, because it works.  And when Christians start committing inordinate amounts of terrorist acts too, profile me as much as you wish.
My honest hope for anyone who disagrees is that an illegal or a Muslim terrorist does NOT kill one of your loved ones.  As soon as it happens, you will change your tune.  Sadly, by then it will be too late.
5) CLINTON WILL BE DESTROYED AT THE DEBATES.
The media continues to portray Clinton as an amazing debate performer, and Trump as a rambling buffoon, but I think the proof will be in the pudding.  Trump does press conference after press conference, while Hillary hasn’t done one in–what is it now?  256 days?  Oh, no, here’s a report from the Washington Post: 263 days!
Hillary Clinton is good at scripted and controlled environments; Trump thrives off of extemporaneous and impromptu remarks.  I truly believe he will destroy her.  Hard to believe, since the newspaper doesn’t report any bad stories about Clinton, but her scandals outshine any of Trump’s by a landslide.
For example, did you know when Bill left office, the Clintons took tens of thousands of dollars of White House furniture as their own, and then were forced to return it all:
4) THERE ARE GOING TO BE DEEPER CONSEQUENCES OF THE PAY-TO-PLAY AT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION AND STATE DEPARTMENT.
Many continue to defend her actions, even after seeing her dishonesty with the emails and “recklessness” (Comey’s words) with classified data.  But now there’s more: Latest revelations from Washington Post & Fox make it clear that she is not going to put the country’s interests before her own:
Big problems for Hillary, from Fox News:
3) OBAMACARE IS FAILING ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
Millions of those who voted for Obama in order to enact Obamacare have now lost their coverage, lost their doctor, or lost their “low cost” premiums.  They, like millions of others across the country, are furious with where this country is headed and want a repeal.
From Slate:
From NPR/Harvard, via Powerline Blog:
2) THE PEOPLE REALLY DO WANT CHANGE.  
But sorry, they don’t want socialistic change.  They want change to actually bring America back on track as the world leader its people want it to be.  On top of that, it seems clear that America is sick of politicians.  I know that I am.
Yes, America wants change, but not the change that Hillary Clinton is fighting for.  I find it hard to believe that most Americans want our country to become even more socialist, particularly since the recent failures of Obamacare show that it doesn’t work.
President Obama was an interesting experiment that didn’t work.  It’s now time for a new experiment.  Its name is Trump.
1) THE MEDIA HAVE BEEN WRONG FROM DAY ONE.
This last reason is truly the strongest.  Why?  The entire media all think he’s gonna lose. Don’t you therefore see?  This means he’s gonna win.
Why?  Becauuuuuuuuuuuuuuse… they have been wrong about him from day one.
Over a year ago, they were laughing at him, predicting he would meet his demise before the first debates.  Alas, he made it to the debates.
During the debates, they were laughing at him, predicting his demise long before the final debates.  Alas, he was the last man standing.
Before the convention, they predicted he would be supplanted by the ‘Never Trump’ campaign.  Alas, he became the nominee.
‘Gaffe’ after ‘gaffe’, they predicted he would never be able to recover.  Alas, he is still in the game, and the Clinton campaign is–despite their appearances–petrified of what the future holds.
So what do we have?  Over 14 months of TOTAL AND COMPLETE INACCURACY, and yet… they continue to make predictions.  Why are they still making predictions?  More concerning, why are the American people still believing them?  Don’t you all realize that the media has lost all its credibility?
The mainstream media continues to try to paint the picture of Trump as a born loser, but as I just pointed out: anything they predict… is wrong.
Critics of my theory state, “Yeah, but look at the polls!”  First, I don’t trust them (see # 10 above) and second, polls have only been accurate in NORMAL presidential elections.  What we have here is an election that no one from the mainstream media has been right about from the day Trump entered the arena.
Conclusion
Trump will win.
No, I can’t predict the future, but the telltale signs seem to make it clear that there is a very high likelihood that nothing in this election is truly as it seems.
People keep saying that Trump has lost his window to turn the tides in this election with only about 85 days left until the election.  Here’s some history: The Boston Tea party turned the tides against the British in just one day.  Normandy turned the tides in favor of the allies in but one day.  And Trump can win this election in just one day too.
As those in combat know, “Never underestimate your enemy.”  Too many are underestimating Trump, thinking he’s an idiot, when truly, you don’t turn a million dollars into billions by being an idiot, and anyone who disputes this is… an idiot who doesn’t understand money, doesn’t understand real estate, and doesn’t understand how difficult it is to do what Trump has done.
Sure, I may be proven wrong.  If so, I will sadly have to accept the fact that America is no longer what it once was; that its people are greatly uneducated and don’t know history; that its people have become lazy and expecting of socialistic handouts from the government; that honesty means nothing anymore; and that government corruption is acceptable.
I may, however, be proven right.  And particularly so if Trump wins in a landslide.  And then my faith in the human race will be restored!  Never more than now: God bless America.  Please God!  Please!
Bottom line, the future of our nation is at stake.  While I love Europe with all my heart, I don’t want the USA to be Europe.  While I love China with all my heart, I don’t want the USA to be China.  I want my country to return to its position as the beacon of hope and dreams for the world.  I don’t want the USA to become like every other country.  We are an exceptional nation.  We need to start acting like one.

Why Trump Ain’t Hitler.

by Dr. Monroe Mann, PhD, Esq, MBA, LLM, ME, EMT

Okay, I’m tired of hearing people comparing Trump to Hitler.  Let me put this argument to rest, once and for all.  And for the record, although I’m Christian, my dad is a stingy Jewish WWII vet, I had a ‘sort-of’ Barmitzvah, and I love shopping at B&H in Manhattan for all my filmmaking needs thanks to the entrepreneurial prowess of the local Hasidics who created the go-to destination for filmmakers.  With that out of the way, let’s get down to business.

FIRST:  Let’s start with the silly basics: Hitler was Austrian; Trump is American.  Totally different nationalities.  Bet those calling Trump Hitler didn’t know Hitler was Austrian, did they?  Yup, raised in Vienna too.  And this is basic history about Hitler.  SOURCE: http://www.annefrank.org/en/Education/Teachers-portal/Pupilsquestions/Why-did-Hitler-hate-Jews/

SECOND:  Hitler wanted to banish all Jews by eliminating them; Trump wants to restrict the immigration of Muslims until they have been vetted to ensure they do not have malicious intentions against our countrymen.  Big difference.  HUGE difference.  While it can be argued that it was not Hitler’s initial intention to actually murder the Jews in the concentration camps, using this argument as a parallel with Trump is flawed.  First, Hitler was irrefutably anti-Jew.  He hated them all and felt they were inferior.  Trump, however is not anti-Muslim and does not feel Muslims are inferior: Trump is merely anti radicalized Muslim, as I am, and as any sane American should be.  There is a big difference between “all Muslims”, and “those Muslims trying to kill us”.  Trump wants to prevent the latter group from killing our families, and that may require some investigation.  Hitler wanted to ensure all Jews were gone.  ALL Jews.  See the difference?  SOURCE: http://www.historytoday.com/alan-farmer/hitler-and-holocaust

THIRD:  But Trump said, “DEPORT ALL MUSLIMS!”  Actually, Trump never said any such thing.  Here is the exact transcript from what he said in September of 2015:

A Trump supporter said, “We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know, he’s not even an American. Birth certificate, man.” At that point, Trump said “Right.”  The man added: “We have training camps … where they want to kill us. That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?

“Trump’s response?

 

“We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re going to look at that and plenty of other things,” Trump responded.

He NEVER said he was going to get rid of the Muslims.  Never.  He merely responded to the multi-part question that preceded it.  Look at the question.  “When can we get rid of them?”  Many news pundits used that word “them” to prove that Trump wants to deport all Muslims.  But look at the statement preceding it: the man asking the question is talking about the training camps, according to Trump’s answer.  When can we get rid of them?  Trump clearly thought the guy talking wanted to know when we could get rid of the training camps, not all the Muslims.  And heck, maybe that’s what the guy asking the questions meant too.

I challenge anyone to find a video of Trump saying, “We’re going to deport all the Muslims.” It was never said.  Case closed.

Need more proof?  As recently as March 2016, major news outlets have been forced to retract their stories stating that Trump stated all Muslims would be deported.  Here’s one from Bloomberg: http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/trackers/2016-03-11/trump-says-he-d-deport-a-lot-of-muslims

Does Trump want to deport a lot of Muslims?  Yes, he does, and rightly so.  Nearly every group attempting to kill us via terrorism in the last ten years has been Muslim.  Ask any apologist to find any other religions conducting terror on the scale of Muslims and they can’t.  Or they cite lame wikipedia articles about The Lord’s Resistance Army https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord%27s_Resistance_Army trying to show Christian terrorism when even a quick read of the article states that the USA doesn’t even consider this group a terrorist group anymore.  Why?  Think about it.

Bottom line: Trump wanting to deport all the Muslims who are affiliated with terror groups does not make him Hitler; it makes him the only man currently running for president who I trust defending this country.

FOURTH: “But wait!  Trump DOES want to deport all the Mexicans!”, they cry.  “He IS like Hitler!”  Actually, no.  See, I’m a lawyer.  In law school, my job was to analyze and interpret case law so that in court, I could best represent my clients.  As a public defender, I did represent some truly terrible people who most clearly broke the law.  And I defended them, yes.  But you see, I never defended them for what they did.  I never defended their breaking the law.  I merely defended their rights and ensured justice was served in accordance with the laws as they currently stood.  If creatively interpreting the law and arguing the facts in interpretative ways allowed me to get my client a decreased sentence, I did so.  Was that immoral?  No, I was doing my job.

My job as a defense attorney was to exploit the system for my client’s benefit–and that is all within the law.  If the state could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that my client did what they claim he did: sorry, not guilty.  That’s the system we have, and I represented my client to the utmost within those parameters, and I promise that you would wish that I would do the same for you if you were accused of a heinous crime as well.

In most cases, though, guess what: my arguments fell on deaf ears.  The facts were the facts and the best I could do was negotiate a plea.  The vast majority of my clients ended up with plea bargains and reduced sentences, but here’s the key: THEY WERE STILL DEEMED GUILTY BY PLEA BARGAIN.  They admitted their guilt, and why?  They were guilty, and the evidence–DNA, prints, video, witnesses–more often than not proved it and they knew that a plea of a lesser conviction would be safer than going to trial and going to prison for years, or worse, decades.

My point: The Mexicans (and Guatemalans, Ecuadorians, etc.) coming over here and staying here illegally… ARE GUILTY.  They have no case whatsoever.  They can’t claim refugee status because South America, while a mess, is not THAT big of a mess.  Unless you can prove that the government is targeting you specifically, or that you in particular are in grave threat of danger, you can’t claim refugee status.  The vast majority are here illegally with no defense whatsoever to stand on.  THEY BROKE THE LAW.  I don’t care if you’re a ‘birther baby’ and your parents are here illegally: sorry, the law is the law, and the law allows those BORN HERE to be citizens; not the parents.  So sorry parents.  It may seem ‘cruel’, but I argue that what’s cruel is this birther law that allows these families to get into this mess in the first place.  Either the entire family becomes citizens (which I don’t support) or no one becomes a citizen (which is a far more rational and logical law).  But hey, the law right now is the law, so I’m sorry: if you came to America to have your baby and you (parents) stay here illegally: shame on you parents!

I will write far more about this illegal immigration situation soon, but for now, we’re just talking about Trump: wanting to deport these illegal immigrants is not racist; it’s being presidential.  That’s the job of the president: to enforce the laws.  Congress makes them.  The Supreme Court interprets them.  The President ensures they are executed.   So until the law changes, Trump would merely be doing what every president since the beginning of this country should have been doing: KICKING OUT THOSE WHO LEGALLY DO NOT BELONG HERE.

I have so many foreign friends who spent years navigating the difficult process of getting a green card and becoming an American… the legal way.  When I moved to Europe, I went (and stayed there) the legal way.  When I moved to China, I went (and stayed there) the legal way.  To me, every illegal is a slap in the face to those who worked their asses off to get here the responsible and honest way.   A friend of mine (who decided no longer to be my friend) lambasted me when I said this to her.  She said, “You are so privileged to grow up in the USA!  You have no idea what it’s like in the rest of the world.”  First, I do, having lived, worked, or traveled in some really rotten places in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.  Second, THAT IS NO EXCUSE!  Just because I’m having trouble paying my rent, that’s not an excuse to break the law and steal.  Just because I’m having a rough time, that’s no excuse to break a perfectly justifiable and good law (immigration law).  Anyone who argues that breaking the law to illegally enter and/or stay in a country has got serious moral problems.  It’s not that I’m lacking compassion, it’s that everyone else lacks common sense.

The best solution to the immigration problem?–I’ll save that for later, but let it be clear that Donald Trump is not racist simply because he wants to enforce an extremely logical immigration law designed to keep us safe and ensure jobs for those here legally.

FIFTH: “Yeah, but Trump hates women,” they cry, so he’s like Hitler.  “He hates so much!”  How so?  Because he criticizes Rosie O’Donnell?  Because he hates Hillary Clinton?  Because he believes a baby inside a woman’s body is a person?  Because he believes that Hillary Clinton should have disavowed her husband after the way he treated her?

Try as you may, sorry, none of these action or statements make him a woman hater.  Trump has raised some truly well behaved and polite children.  Have you ever heard of Ivanka or Tiffany bad mouthing him?  Why would that amazing woman Melania marry him if he’s such a jerk?  Why haven’t his ex-wives come out saying horrible things about him?  Answer: he’s not anti-woman.

“Yeah, but he went on all these dates with women when he was younger!”  All I can say is, so?  Is going on dates with many woman a clear indication that he hates woman?  Um, to me, seems like he likes women. ;D

LOOK: I can go on and on.  Trump is not Hitler, and to even suggest such is an insult to the millions of Jews who died in concentration camps all around Europe.  Trump is not Hitler, and even if he were, our amazing country would prevent anything like that ever happening again.  God bless our Founding Fathers and the separation of powers: there is virtually no way to imagine how Trump could in any way institute anything on the scale and horror of what Hitler did, even if he wanted to (and he doesn’t).  Congress would never in a million years approve any such crazy measure of mass executions.

So rest assured, Trump is not Hitler, and his presidency would not be the 4th Reich.  Keine Sorge, Mein Freund, Keine Sorge.  😀

Welcome to the Truth. The Divisive Truth.

My name is Monroe Mann and I used to have a Facebook Account.

Used to?

Yeah, I deleted it–and all of my 3000 ‘friends’ (who were not really my friends anyway)–irrevocably.  I didn’t deactivate: I DELETED IT.  It’s gone.

Why?

Well, I used to live in China.  As much as I love China, and 虽然我觉得中国真是非常棒,I moved back home in 2015 because I was tired of the pollution, and also the political censorship, in Shanghai (and in the rest of the country).  Those weren’t the only two reasons, but they were in the top five.

Well, I returned home to the USA only to discover that Facebook is doing… the exact same thing.  Sure, it’s a private company, but given its size and breadth now as a virtual nation-state, it has a responsibility to be a bit more than a ‘private company’.

Twice in the last six months, Facebook censored what I wrote, removed the post, removed all the comments, removed all the likes, and then went so far as to block me from posting for 24 hours, and prohibit me from even using the messaging feature to write and reply to those with whom I had already been in contact.  Real cool Facebook: removing a post is one thing.  Gagging me from speaking further is just preposterous.

The first time it happened, I coughed it up to a one time occurrence.  When it happened again last week, I realized I did not want the benefit of their stupid service if it meant having to watch what I have to stay.

What did I write?

Here’s the post: “Poor Brussels.  Again.  Sorry people: this is why the world is really getting pissed off at Muslims.  Trump is right: Muslims and mosques need to be watched.  The Muslim world needs to start taking responsibility.  And yes, we need to destroy the families of ISIS–including their wives and children, because they are ALL involved.  I’m not racist: I’m being realistic.  And I am very very angry.”

It’s honestly nothing whatsoever for anyone to get upset about.  The truth is: ISIS absolutely undeniably is training women and children to kill Westerners–haven’t seen the videos, have you?  When I was serving in Iraq with the US Army, women and children were trying to kill us there too.

Look, I’m sorry that it’s offensive to some, but it shouldn’t be. Why?  Because it’s simply… the truth.  The divisive truth, yes, but that’s not because what I wrote was factually incorrect; it’s divisive simply because it was politically incorrect.

The world needs to wake up about a lot of things, and most pressingly these days, the threat from radical Islam.   In a future post, I (and I hope other writers who want to jump aboard) am going to start going even deeper, helping to show you that it’s not ‘radical Islam’ that’s the problem, but rather, Islam itself.  Again, politically incorrect, but only because it’s the… divisive truth.  If you don’t yet believe me, just keep returning to this blog and you’ll soon learn why even Winston Churchill was extremely wary of the religion.

This doesn’t mean I don’t like Muslims.  On the contrary, I have many friends of that religion, and many who are still in fact living in Iraq with whom I worked while training the Iraqi Army.  What I’m writing here is not a blanket statement meant to persecute all Muslims.  That’s the furthest thing from what I’m saying.

So what am I saying?

I’m saying that we need to destroy ISIS and any other Islamic group that is plotting to kill us.  Men.  Women.  Children.  This is war, and they are ALL combatants.  And unless we act first and destroy them–just as we did the Nazis, and just as we did in Japan with the H-bomb–they are going to destroy us.

I constantly hear peacenicks chatting away, “We can’t solve violence with violence!”  These people clearly have either historical amnesia, factual denial, or are just unwittingly ignorant, because throughout history, when dealing with psychopaths, the only way to stop them precisely IS violence.

If we didn’t use violence, all of Asia would be speaking Japanese right now, and all of the Western world would be speaking German.  Enough said.

This online journal is absolutely conservative.  In it, I will help to debunk the myth of global warming, peaceful Islam, the virtues of high taxes, abortion, and the list goes on.  Why?  Because I’m absolutely sick of the liberal media.  If you can’t change them… compete with them.  And so here we are.

Thanks for reading.  Check back often.  And please tell your friends about this website: http://www.DivisiveTruth.com.

And let’s hope WordPress is a little bit more ‘Free Speech’ than Facebook. 🙂
