ROCKET’S RED GLARE …

To be honest, I’ve always wondered how people of color feel about hearing the National Anthem or pledging allegiance to the flag. The National Anthem was written 50 years before the slaves were freed. Why should a person of color stand and put their hand over their heart for it in the first place?

To fully appreciate the American National Anthem you have to put it into context …

It was written during the war of 1812 (the forgotten conflict) by a lawyer named Francis Scott Key. The war of 1812 isn’t a popular war because it was a bit convoluted and not as noble as other American wars. We actually declared it on the British a mere twenty-three years after ratifying our beloved constitution. It was fought over shipping routes, blockades, Canadian territory, something to do with Napoleon and I’m sure a host of other complications I slept through…

Who caused this economic downturn and what should we do about it?

Almost no one realizes that this entire subprime lending mess was created by the Community Reinvestment Act, which was passed by President Carter, a Democrat, in 1977. Later on in the 1990s, Bill Clinton, another Democrat, passed laws to enforce the original bill. The purpose of the CRA is to force banks to make risky loans to people who can’t afford to repay those loans.

The extremely left-wing Los Angeles Times explains in 1999 that the CRA was passed to force banks to make risky loans.

Under Clinton, bank regulators have breathed the first real life into enforcement of the Community Reinvestment Act, a 20-year-old statute meant to combat “redlining” by requiring banks to serve their low-income communities. The administration also has sent a clear message by stiffening enforcement of the fair housing and fair lending laws.

The man who occupies the White House is at war with us.  He is not at war against ISIS.  He is not at war against black poverty.  He is not at war against unemployment.  He is not at war against anything that threatens you.  He is at war with you.

The man who has the most power over Americans is actively working to destroy Americans.  That is a bitter pill to swallow—but swallow it we must.

But how do I convince you that he is at war against us?  I struggled with…
