Kid Rock Has A Major Announcement About Who He Supports For President

While many in the entertainment industry are quick to speak out in favor of leftist causes, Kid Rock has been a notable voice representing, at least to a certain extent, conservative values.

The Detroit-based rock star revealed he is “definitely a Republican,” offering his take on the Second Amendment, among other key issues, in a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian last year.

“I’m always buying more guns,” he said. “I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns.”

As the 2016 presidential election season gets underway in earnest with Monday’s Iowa caucuses, Kid Rock once again waxed political in a recent Rolling Stone interview. Though he once said he supported Dr. Ben Carson’s presidential bid, he has since apparently switched his allegiance to Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

In typical Kid Rock fashion, he did not clean up his language when explaining why he backs the billionaire real estate mogul.

“My feeling: let the motherf–king business guy run it like a f–king business,” he said. “And his campaign has been entertaining as s–t.”

He went on to say the U.S. is “not really working too well running it not like a business,” asking “what f–king business survives when they’re f–king broke?”

Based on the fact Trump appeals to those voters disillusioned by politics as usual, Kid Rock predicted he would be the party’s eventual nominee.

“I think he will,” the singer said. “To me, I’m just like, ‘We gotta try something else.’”

 

Trump Just Made An Embarassing Mistake In Church That Has Many Shaking Their Heads

While attending a church service in Iowa Sunday, Donald Trump momentarily mistook the silver communion plate for an offering plate and started to dig into his pockets for cash.

The candidate, who was attending the First Christian Church – Orchard Campus in Council Bluffs with his wife Melania, quickly realized his mistake and took the communion element instead.

“I thought it was for offering,” he told staffers with a laugh. 

Trump gave an offering to the church (which is part of the Four Square denomination) several minutes later, when the appropriate plates were passed, the Associated Press reported.

“As Trump was leaving, one of the church pastors put his hand on Trump’s shoulder and offered a prayer, ‘That Jesus would guide his decisions and that only Christ could guide his decisions,’ the pastor later said. Trump gladly accepted, bowing his head,” according to the AP. 

“Thank you, I need that,” Trump said.

Last summer, Trump spoke about partaking in Holy Communion. “When I drink my little wine — which is about the only wine I drink — and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed,” he said, according to CNN. “I think in terms of ‘Let’s go on and let’s make it right.’”

On Saturday, Trump released a new video with him holding up a Bible, which he said was given to him by his mother. “In fact, it’s her writing, right here,” he said opening to a page near the front of the Holy book. “She wrote the name and the address, and it’s just very special to me.”

The candidate also stated, “I really appreciate the support given to me by the evangelicals.”

Trump ended the video promising them, “I will never let you down,” he said.

According to recent polling, the former reality television star has tightened the gap with Sen. Ted Cruz among evangelicals in Iowa (38 to 30 percent in favor of Cruz); this group generally makes up nearly half of all caucus voters.

The endorsements of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., during the last two weeks may have helped Trump with this very important voting population.

Republicans Have A Big Advantage In The White House Race That No One Is Talking About

Paul Bedard, writer of the column “Washington Secrets” for the Washington Examiner, says Republicans are much more eager to vote than Democrats this year. Bedard cites Ed Goeas, a pollster and GOP strategist, as his source. Goeas said that Republicans are motivated by one thing and one thing only: getting President Barack Obama out of the White House.

Goeas told Bedard, “We had in 2010 a nine-point advantage on intensity. Going into 2014 we had a seven-point advantage on intensity, meaning our voters are more intense about voting. Right now we have an 11-point advantage … I’ve never seen a double-digit advantage in terms of intensity to vote.”

Goeas also told Bedard that Republican female voters are more intent than ever to get out and vote, claiming that they are as eager as men to vote this year. And that hasn’t been noticed in the past.

Goeas said, “Not only is there no gender gap, there’s no intensity gap with Republicans wanting to vote Republican this year, all driven by the president.”

Goeas also claimed that the intensity to vote is driven by the perception of many Americans that the American Dream is nearly out of reach. And he said that Latino and African American voters are taking more of an interest in the Republican candidates.

According to Bedard, “Among African-Americans, for example, (Goens) found that 22 percent were voting Republican or undecided. Among Hispanics, 45 percent are already backing the GOP or are undecided.”

Goeas concluded, “In the current economic and political environment, there are a significant number of middle-class voters whose first test of a policy will be its economic impact on them. This mindset provides a valuable opportunity for Republicans to increase their support among minorities.”

Trump Is The King Of The Dispossessed

Donald Trump has never once made a claim that he would play nice. Not one time that I am aware of has he stated he intends to avoid mudslinging.

Why then is Trump able to continually cast doubt on his attackers? How is he getting away with it when everybody else withers under attacks from the press?

It’s very simple. His campaign strategy is not geared towards groups that adhere to the politics of cultural Marxism.

Obviously, it’s easier to control a mish mash of tiny disparate groups all competing for influence with each other. This concept has infiltrated the upper ranks of the Republican establishment as well. Both the Democrats and the Republicans pander to special interest groups who practice identity politics. It has been this way for quite some time.

Cultural Marxism has dominated the government elite, and academic elites, for years. The primary mode of operation for these groups continues to be the destruction of any kind of cohesive cultural identity. The political drum through much of 2015 was beaten continuously to the tune that white Americans will only comprise 50 percent of the electorate by 2045 or 2050. The obvious message is, “You politicians better be nice to minorities because we are your future.”

This inability to see the mass disregard for the reality of today’s electorate has been a major weakness within both parties which the Trump campaign has taken advantage of. Trump has turned the game on its ear because he is playing identity politics just like everyone else, and It is very simple: He is pandering to people who self-identify as white and working class.

The irony? It’s working with Republicans and Democrats.

In an article in the New York Times published Dec. 31, a poll by Democrat polling firm Civis Analytics showed likely supporters of Donald Trump were comprised of a specific kind of voting segment: White southern Democrats who like to vote Republican. Does this sound familiar? It should, because that’s the group that brought us Ronald Reagan. It’s well known that if white, blue-dog Democrats had not voted for Reagan he would never have been president.

Why is it working again with Trump? Because this particular segment of the electorate has been ignored for quite some time.

You might say, “But Clifton, white people win every election.”

To which I would say, “Not these white people.”

These white people have been ignored repeatedly for decades. The white, blue-collar, non-union and union workers are who we are talking about. The primary group that wants illegal immigration contained, and offshoring of jobs to stop. They have watched massive bank bailouts, their home values destroyed, and the disintegration of the automotive industry in this country (the bread and butter of union workers for years).

Of course, they are going to vote for Trump. Nobody else is listening and they are a big enough voting block to put Trump in the White House.

This also happens to be the same group that wants to know why the United States is giving money away overseas when its infrastructure is crumbling and it’s carrying a gargantuan national debt. You should ignore these people at your own risk because together they comprise a very large section of the American electorate. They are tired of being lied to and being told what to think by the media — and when I say the media, I mean Fox News as well.

This works out for Trump because he has a massive pool of support coming into the election that is immune to talking heads and pundits. The general assumption this group makes about news personalities is that If their mouths are moving, they are lying.

His support for single-payer healthcare, tough immigration enforcement, and action against offshoring companies is going to be extremely hard to top among his support groups. If you think he seems unstoppable in the Republican primaries, just wait until the general election. Hillary ‘the felon’ Clinton and Bernie the ‘Marxist troll doll’ Sanders are a snack for the ‘Shark of Atlantic City.’

Those who decry Trump as a fascist have only themselves to blame if he turns out to be one. Especially when the term “fascist” has been beaten ragged by left-wing media as a term for Republicans they really dislike. Is it really a surprise a group largely demonized by the mainstream media pays them no attention at all?

You cannot ignore a core portion of the electorate to take care of small minorities and then seem surprised when they pick their own man.

It’s hard not to agree the changing electorate is going to be important by 2045. It is, however, time for a reality check. It is currently 2016, and the way I understand reality,  you can’t get elected in 2016 by people from 2045.

Exposed: Secret Docs Just Revealed How Obama Lied To The Public AND Congress

According to a new congressional report, the Obama administration lied about the federal government’s ability to prioritize spending to avert a potential credit default during the debt limit negotiations in 2011 and 2013, when it claimed such a contingency would be “unworkable.”

The administration warned, during both time windows, that if the debt ceiling were not raised in time, the treasury would not be able to pay Social Security recipients and veterans benefits, and that the United States would have to default to its creditors, destroying the full faith and credit of the federal government.

Republicans countered that the administration could prioritize revenues, which continuously come into the Treasury, to ensure these eventualities did not happen while the two sides reached an agreement. At the time, the GOP charged the administration with seeking to create a crisis in the eyes of the public, in order to force the Republican-controlled House to back down and accept Obama’s spending agenda.

The new report by the House Financial Services Committee validates the GOP claim. According to the Daily Caller, it “states that the Obama administration crafted actual contingency plans to pay for Social Security and veterans benefits, as well as principal and interest on the national debt if the government was temporarily unable to borrow more money. The Committee concludes that over the last two years the Treasury Department has ‘obstructed’ congressional efforts to get to the bottom of the administration’s real-time policy during the two showdowns.” 

When negotiations reached a fevered pitch in October 2013, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew appeared before the Senate Finance Committee, where Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., pressed him on the Obama administration’s plans to pay the nation’s creditors until a spending agreement could be reached.

“[A]s the Secretary of the Treasury, are you prepared to assure us, but, more importantly, the millions of Americans who are investors in U.S. Treasury securities and the entire American economy,that under no circumstances will you permit a missed payment on a U.S. Treasury security obligation?” the senator asked

“Senator, the only way to make sure we could pay all of our obligations is for Congress to act and raise the debt limit. No President has ever had to decide whether to pay some bills and not others,” the secretary responded. 

The new congressional report finds: “Treasury has sought to withhold from Congress and the American people information about the Administration’s contingency plans, for the purpose of pressuring Congress to acquiesce to the Administration’s position that any increase in the debt ceiling not be accompanied by spending constraints.”
