Though Trump faces an uphill battle to be taken seriously by his rivals, political watchers, and the media, his enormous wealth means that he will be able to fund his own campaign out of pocket.
During the rally, protesters outside overran barricades and clashed with police in riot gear. They also burned t-shirts and other items labeled with Trump's catchphrase, "Make America Great Again."
Could [a Trump] victory happen? Absolutely. But it would be a very big upset! About as likely as the Chicago Cubs baseball team coming back from a three-games-to-one deficit to win their first World Series since 1908. So yeah, Hillary's got this. Democrats, just ask a Cleveland Indians fan whether you have anything to worry about.
Despite the simple nature of his strategy, Trump was endlessly mocked by the mainstream media, however, Americans voted for President Donald J. Trump by the masses.
Informed by historical voting patterns, each pollster must make a prediction about turnout. But the actual turnout in each state is unknowable before election day.
Both sides are terrified of one another, and I think that's why voting booths have a curtain.
As the 2016 general race marched on, Hillary Clinton's "deplorables" comment proved to be a formidable force dumbfounding establishment politicos and forcing Hillary Clinton to make statements like this at the Laborer's International Union, "Why am I not 50 points ahead you might ask?"
Much of the narrative ahead of the election had been that Mr. Trump was supported by angry, white men.
Once the election was over and President Trump won, the media launched into calling voters "ugly Americans" or chanting "not our president." They shamed the electorate for voting for Trump.
The Left tried to re-litigate the election results by demanding recounts. Ostensibly, the recount picked up more votes and increased Trump's lead.
The anger then turned to hysteria and talks of impeachment, which emerged from Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters who made "Impeach 45" a campaign trail mantra. She has become an icon for the Left in her unrelenting calls for the impeachment of President Trump.
Why is the 25th Amendment getting so much attention? In a column by David Brooks, the New York Times said, "I still have trouble seeing how the Trump administration survives a full term…"
Germany, its spirit broken after World War I, turned to Adolf Hitler. Hitler imbued the German people with national pride and provided a scapegoat to take the blame for their misery: the Jews. Thus, fascism in Germany took on a new face of racism and national fear-mongering. Even after this became apparent, many German people reluctantly obeyed to escape persecution and save their lives.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) and other key Democrats were actually fans of Adolf Hitler and his Italian fascist counterpart Benito Mussolini. Both the architect of the modern Left and patriarch of Neo-liberalism admitted to drawing considerable inspiration from the fascist uprisings led by Hitler and Mussolini before the outbreak of WWII when Nazi sentiments became hazardous.
The Nazi Party newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter, stressed 'Roosevelt's adoption of National Socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies,' praising the president's style of leadership as being compatible with Hitler's own dictatorial Führerprinzip.
"I don't mind telling you in confidence," FDR remarked to a White House correspondent, "that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman."
The National Socialist German Workers Party is only "right" if you are hopelessly "left."
The Nazis were not wrong to cite American precedents.
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious member."
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood and the eugenics movement that was admired by Adolf Hitler. Planned Parenthood has been widely controversial in the United States since the first one opened in 1916.
Sanger also made some deeply disturbing statements in support of eugenics. Her idea of the movement was meant to improve the overall health and fitness of humankind through selective breeding. In a 1921 article, Sanger wrote, "The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective."
Hitler hated the Christians. Martin Bormann, one of Hitler's closest and most influential aides, declared that National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable, and Hitler himself said that Christianity was a religion of fools and "old women." Hitler declared, "The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity… The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity." Hitler and Stalin were both baptized Christians, but each did their best to destroy Christianity as well as Judaism.
The term "concentration camp" refers to a camp in which people are detained or confined, usually under harsh conditions and without regard to legal norms of arrest and imprisonment that are found in democratic nations.
In his personal life, George Washington freed all of his own slaves in his will and encouraged his wife's side of the family to do the same. Thomas Jefferson, a slaveowner all his life, sent a last message to the American people on June 24, 1826: "All eyes are opened, or opening to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them." Washington by his actions and Jefferson by his words paved the way for Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, to bring to fruition this equality with the Emancipation Act of April 16, 1862.
Socialism proposes to do away with free competition; to afford protection and support at all times to the laboring class; to bring about, at least, a qualified community or property, and to associate labor. All these purposes, slavery fully and perfectly attains.
The Nebraska Bill passed the house on May 22, 1854. The next day, about thirty anti-slavery members of the House of Representatives, Whigs and Democrats, held a meeting and discussed the necessity of organizing a new party under the name 'Republican.' The members of the new party pledged themselves to fight against the extension of slavery.
The key to the Republican party's success was its position on slavery. It opposed the expansion of slavery, calling upon Congress to take measures, whenever necessary, to prevent its extension. It condemned slavery as an immoral institution, a relic of "barbarism," and most Republicans thought that by confining slavery within its present boundaries, the institution would be placed on the road to eventual extinction.
The original Ku Klux Klan had fallen by the wayside after Reconstruction, only to see its fortunes revived with director D.W. Griffith's 1915 movie The Birth of A Nation. President Woodrow Wilson screened the film twice for guests at the White House.
Mr. Wallace promised to protect the states' "Anglo-Saxon people" from "communistic amalgamation" with blacks and ended with the line that would haunt his later efforts to enter the Democratic mainstream: "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
His allegiance to the KKK, however, did help push Byrd into the political arena. Encouraged by the grand dragon of his KKK branch, Byrd ran on the Democratic ticket for West Virginia's House of Delegates in 1946.
Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler's ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.
According to Spencer, that solidified several aspects of contemporary conservatism, including an emphasis on liberty, freedom, free markets, and capitalism. Spencer considers these ideas to be "anti-ideals" and says the alt-right is redefining categories for a new kind of conservative.
Antifa started out as an "anti-fascist" group that believed the only means to achieve social equality and to defeat fascists is through violence… Antifa groups claim that they act to protect minorities, however, rioting and vandalism only serve to harmfully impact minority communities, as they hurt local businesses and prevent local employees—often minorities themselves—from being able to work.
Democrats presented their talking points to the media and decided fascism will become the 'modus operandi' that takes down President Trump. Columbia History professor Robert Paxton explains similarities between Antifa and Mussolini's "black shirts" in his book The Anatomy of Fascism."
Who is Sophie Scholl: "Sophie Scholl has become an important symbol of anti-Nazi resistance in Germany."
