We all know there are cultural differences. Here are some comic drawings illustrating the difference in cultures between the Chinese and American way of seeing things. Multiply that by 192 different sovereign countries and it becomes easy to see why having a common culture is so important for a nation.

One of the best articles I've read in a while even though it's a bit long-winded.

Defend America—Defeat Multiculturalism


Through identity politics and political correctness, today's multiculturalist enforcers seek to erase and replace America. Together, we must save the Union once again.

Did you know? (Regarding Donald J. Trump)

The Mueller report compiled private allegations of loud and obnoxious behavior by Donald Trump. He consistently fights back by Tweeting. Many are offended by his tweets.

There are many things that most people don’t know about our President. Here are few not mentioned in my earlier post.

Did you know that 2 days following the attacks on 9/11 Donald Trump was at ground zero with hundreds of workers that he paid for out of his own pocket to help find and identify victims?

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that he is obligated by law to “take” his salary, but President Trump donates all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries?!

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Trump actually visits military cemeteries?

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that although his family was very wealthy, Trump’s boyhood home in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens was not a grand mansion? The Trump home was a larger version of the homes Fred Trump was building for his tenants.

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Donald Trump does not smoke, drink or use recreational drugs?

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Donald Trump sued the City of Palm Beach when he bought a segregated club, Mar A Lago, to open it to Jewish and black Americans? (See footnote.)

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Donald Trump paid to ensure a Mexican-American boy would graduate from college when he saw a news story about his terminally ill mother?

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Donald Trump’s airline gave free rides to stranded veterans returning from the first Gulf War? (See footnote.)

Didn’t think so.

Did you know that Trump supports Gay Men’s Health Crisis? (The article in the link also documents multiple million dollar charitable gifts.)

Didn’t think so.

Billy and Karen Vaughn are the parents of fallen Navy SEAL, Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team VI). Here are her words:

Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn’t mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn’t even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he’s necessary for such a time as this… I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House and gave this nation one more chance in November 2016… I can’t help admire the ability he has to act with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script. (No teleprompter like someone we know – R. Filly.)

I could go on (see footnote), but I will end with this:

Beto O’Rourke reported a total income of $370,412 in 2017; he reported only $1,166 of charitable giving that year
Bernie Sanders Sanders’ income ranged from $205,617 to $1.1 million on his tax returns, while his charitable giving ranged from less than 1 percent to just over 4 percent depending on the year.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren more than doubled her average charitable donations in 2017, one year before she announced her candidacy for president – hmm.

Roy Filly

Footnote:

In 1986, Trump prevented the foreclosure of Annabell Hill’s family farm after her husband committed suicide. Trump personally phoned down to the auction to stop the sale of her home and offered the widow money. Trump decided to take action after he saw Hill’s pleas for help in news reports.

In 1988, a commercial airline refused to fly Andrew Ten, a sick Orthodox Jewish child with a rare illness, across the country to get medical care because he had to travel with an elaborate life-support system. His grief stricken parents contacted Trump for help and he didn’t hesitate to send his own plane to take the child from Los Angeles to New York so he could get his treatment.

In 1991, 200 Marines who served in Operation Desert Storm spent time at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina before they were scheduled to return home to their families. However, the Marines were told that a mistake had been made and an aircraft would not be able to take them home on their scheduled departure date. When Trump got wind of this, he sent his plane to make two trips from North Carolina to Miami to safely return the Gulf War Marines to their loved ones.

In 1995, a motorist stopped to help Trump after the limo he was traveling in got a flat tire. Trump asked the Good Samaritan how he could repay him for his help. All the man asked for was a bouquet of flowers for his wife. A few weeks later Trump sent the flowers with a note that read: “We’ve paid off your mortgage.”

In 1996, Trump filed a lawsuit against the city of Palm Beach, Florida accusing the town of discriminating against his Mar-a-Lago resort club because it allowed Jews and blacks. Abraham Foxman, who was the Anti-Defamation League Director at the time, said Trump “put the light on Palm Beach – not on the beauty and the glitter, but on its seamier side of discrimination.” Foxman also noted that Trump’s charge had a trickle-down effect because other clubs followed his lead and began admitting Jews and blacks

In 2000, Maury Povich featured a little girl named Megan who struggled with Brittle Bone Disease on his show and Trump happened to be watching. Trump said the little girl’s storyand positive attitude touched his heart. So he contacted Maury and gifted the little girl and her family with a very generous check.

In 2008, after Jennifer Hudson’s family members were tragically murdered in Chicago, Trump put the Oscar-winning actress and her family up at his Windy City hotel for free. In addition to that, Trump’s security took extra measures to ensure Hudson and her family members were safe during such a difficult time.

In 2013, New York bus driver Darnell Barton spotted a woman close to the edge of a bridge staring at traffic below as he drove by. He stopped the bus, got out and put his arm around the woman and saved her life byconvincing her to not jump. When Trump heard about this story, he sent the hero bus driver a check simply because he believed his good deed deserved to be rewarded.

In 2014, Trump gave $25,000 to Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi after he spent seven months in a Mexican jail for accidentally crossing the US-Mexico border. President Barack Obama couldn’t even be bothered to make one phone call to assist with the United States Marine’s release; however, Trump opened his pocketbook to help this serviceman get back on his feet.

In 2016, Melissa Consin Young attended a Trump rally and tearfully thanked Trump for changing her life. She said she proudly stood on stage with Trump as Miss Wisconsin USA in 2005. However, years later she found herself struggling with an incurable illness and during her darkest days she explained that she received a handwritten letter from Trump telling her she’s the “bravest woman, I know.” She said the opportunities that she got from Trump and his organizations ultimately provided her Mexican-American son with a full-ride to college.

Lynne Patton, a black female executive for the Trump Organization, released a statement in 2016 defending her boss against accusations that he’s a racist and a bigot. She tearfully revealed how she’s struggled with substance abuse and addiction for years. Instead of kicking her to the curb, she said the Trump Organization and his entire family loyally stood by her through “immensely difficult times.”

Here's a really cool one. McNaughton, a patriot artist, painted this and offers prints through his website for purchase. Yep; I'm getting one.

He probably doesn't know much about bikes. I see this as a generic motorcycle. No brand.

Can you spot Biden in this picture? He's been around a while.

Looks like a Yamaha V-Star 1300. Just an observation that a decked-out, USA-flagged bike wasn't an American bike.

Good catch Broggy. I wonder if this Yammy was at least built (put together) in America like a lot of foreign makes to avoid tariffs. All the cars GM sells in China are made in China so it goes both ways.

There was a time HD and Trump had a bit of tiff going on over tariffs but I think that's largely over with. The artist may have known this and decided to go with a different brand as a template. Would have been great if he gone with Victory eh!

If you read no other political articles this year; read this one. It's one of Daniel Greenfield's best IMHO.

The Brainwashing of a Nation


From campus identity politics cults to the media, brainwashing is bigger than ever.
