    Here is the base reason a lot of the political conflict is being stirred in our nation right now. When the Democrats had a lock on power and were able to get a lot of their people into Congress and the Federal Agencies, they had everything their way. Those Democrats along with wealthy "friends" who are running various businesses want things to stay the way they are. The all become immensely wealthy, scratch each other's backs and stay on top. If and when the people begin to realize the real game that is being played doesn't involve the people winning...

    Northern California would encompass almost the entire upper part of the state, including the Bay Area and Sacramento; California would include the Los Angeles area and extend along the coast through Monterey County; Southern California would include everything else, including Orange County, San Diego and Fresno, a map of the proposal showed. Southern California would be the most populous of the three states, with 13.9 million residents, according to California’s Legislative’s Analyst’s Office. Northern California would have 13.3 million residents, while California would have 12.3 million. “The citizens of the whole state would be better served by three smaller state...

    America seems to be on the brink of something dramatic. Something significant. Perhaps revolutionary. A summer of rage appears more and more likely as the nation remains bitterly divided and irreparably torn due to outlandish partisanship. The political elite and their good friends in the powerful Deep State are being threatened by the Trump administration that, for all its faults, is at least exposing the Deep Swamp that really runs Washington. The old political order is being upended by Trump’s rise to power and the media elite still haven’t figured out how to adapt. During this time of transformation, people...

    Never before has it been so apparent that the world is split and divided. The very act of having an opinion pushes us to almost “double down” on one side of the argument. It seems that the powers that be want us neatly separated into “two camps” and we are only too happy to oblige. But in actuality, it has always been like this; the advent of 24 hour news cycles just made it possible for us to be aware. And the reality is that there are “two camps” for almost every issue. The people are failing to be categorized...

The president's with Russia? I'm with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, I'm for NATO! Why? (It's a) wedge. Wedges have to be schisms, schisms have to be divides."

    In 2000, Al Gore narrowly won the popular vote, but carried fewer than 700 counties. In 2012, President Obama squeezed even more advantage from the biggest places: He carried 86 of the nation’s 100 largest counties (including the District of Columbia), winning them by nearly 12 million votes combined. That allowed him to win comfortably, although he carried only about 600 of the remaining 3,000 counties, and lost them by nearly 7 million votes combined. This year, Hillary Clinton pushed that model just past the breaking point. Pending final results, she now leads in 88 of the nation’s 100 largest...

    Barack Obama studied radical leftist Saul Alinsky and taught his methods in school. Obama teaches Alinsky method in Chicago.Obama based his entire political and professional career on Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a system used to divide, agitate, create disenchantment and fan the flames of hopelessness.Just two weeks ago Barack Obama accused FOX News of spreading malicious and mean stereotypes about the poor during a conference on poverty. Of course, not one reporter asked him about his own failed economic policies that have thrown millions of Americans into poverty.So it came ast quite a shock today when Obama told an...

    Maxine Waters — the fiery liberal from Los Angeles known for calling House Republican leadership “demons” and threatening to nationalize oil companies — has gone from the scourge of Big Business to a sympathetic ally for corporate America. It’s no accident. Waters is executing this transformation by seizing on the growing divide between conservative Republicans and Big Business and leveraging her position as the top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, where in the coming weeks she will play a role in the battles over extending a terrorism insurance program and the Export-Import Bank. A large part of her...

    5 Race Riots in Obama's Post-Racial America by Ben Shapiro 11 Aug 2014 Riots and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer represent just the latest spate of race-based mass violence to break out in President Obama’s post-racial America. When Obama was elected in 2008, many Americans hoped that racial conflict in the country would calm. Instead, precisely the reverse seems to have occurred. Not all riots across the country have been racial in nature, of course. Occupy Wall Street participated in riots repeatedly in 2011, and May Day protesters rioted in...

    Differences Between Rural and Urban America Are Underappreciated Factor in Political Split EL DORADO SPRINGS, Mo.—The owner of the nicest restaurant in town doesn't serve alcohol, worried that his pastor would be disappointed if he did. Public schools try to avoid scheduling events on Wednesday evenings, when churches hold Bible study. And Democrats here are a rare and lonely breed. Older, nearly 100% white and overwhelmingly Republican, El Dorado Springs is typical of what is now small-town America. Coffee costs 90 cents at the diner, with free refills. Two hours north and a world away in Kansas City, Starbucks charges...

    For much of Barack Obama’s presidency, he has sought to avoid being defined by his race or gender, often emphasizing that he is the leader of all Americans. On Thursday, Mr. Obama will use the power of his office to focus on helping young black men succeed. Stymied by Congress on many of the economic policies he considers central to the lives of blacks, Mr. Obama is seeking to prod nonprofit foundations, business groups and civic leaders to provide more opportunities for a struggling part of the American family. His new “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative is aimed at finding ways...

    The stars of "Duck Dynasty" might be America's most popular TV family, but that could change very soon — because Phil Robertson has made some strong (and seriously offensive) anti-gay remarks that have sparked instant backlash. Speaking with GQ, Robertson lamented that when "everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong ... sin becomes fine." So just what qualifies as sinful in his book? "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there — bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men," he declared.

    President Barack Obama Has Earned 'Great Divider' Label The Oklahoman Editorial | Published: February 10, 2013 WHEN the annals of presidential nicknames are updated a few years hence, it will be obvious that Barack Obama began earning a certain designation virtually from the day he took office in 2009. The Great Divider. This will be an appendix to a list that includes The Great Emancipator (Lincoln), The American Cincinnatus (Washington), The Apostle of Democracy (Jefferson) and The Great Communicator (Reagan). These are flattering descriptions. They are also earned descriptions — unlike irreverent and partisan monikers such as Martin Van Ruin...

    TEL AVIV – Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told KleinOnline. The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders – meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem. The negotiator further revealed when it comes to dividing Jerusalem, Obama wants to rehash what is known as the...

    It hardly took another study for people to know that political polarization in this country is deeply embedded. Still, a report issued Monday, June 4, by the Pew Research Center paints a particularly stark portrait of a nation in which the most significant divisions are no longer based on race, class or sex but on political identity. For 25 years, Pew has been conducting regular surveys assessing American values. They provide a series of historical benchmarks by which to examine the changes in what binds people and what divides them. The latest report finds considerable continuity over that quarter-century in...

    WASHINGTON -- Tensions between the rich and poor are increasing and at their most intense level in nearly a quarter-century, a new survey shows. Americans now see more social conflict over wealth inequality than over the hot-button topics of immigration, race relations and age. The survey released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center highlights U.S. perceptions of the economic divide, an issue that has moved to the forefront in the 2012 presidential campaign amid stubbornly high unemployment, increasing poverty and protests by the Occupy movement.

    <p>We’re in the midst of a great four-year national debate on the size and reach of government, the future of the welfare state, indeed, the nature of the social contract between citizen and state. The distinctive visions of the two parties — social-democratic versus limited-government — have underlain every debate on every issue since Barack Obama’s inauguration: the stimulus, the auto bailouts, health-care reform, financial regulation, deficit spending. Everything. The debt ceiling is but the latest focus of this fundamental divide.</p>
  • A Generational Divide? Why is the younger generation reluctant to fund Boomer retirement?

    In Running on Empty, Peter G. Peterson excoriates the "we-first" attitude of retiring baby boomers.  Having read Peterson's take on boomer retirement, one is left with the impression that boomers are selfishly intent on bankrupting future generations and driving America into permanent decline to boot.  Happily, Peterson concludes, there is a solution: higher taxes and reduced benefits.  This is what Peterson calls "real leadership." Breaking promises and raising taxes may seem like "leadership" to some, but in fact it is just another effort to excuse and facilitate irresponsible spending by future administrations.  The common refrain of every liberal commentator...

This is not to cause division but to bring unity and awareness that I mean business with America to repent and follow me wholeheartedly - a new "Continental Divide" - for not even a river will make this passable and no bridge span its width or girth. Now in this shaking miracles shall occur bringing my chosen ones together as one for...
