Election Day Validated the Greatness Agenda

The 2020 election resoundingly validates President Trump’s America First policies.

That is the incontestable reality no matter how the vote counts are contested in days and weeks to come.

What are those policies?

Allegiance to national sovereignty rather than submission to transnational authorities.

Championing American citizens rather than “global citizens” of a borderless world. 

Restricting immigration to end the downward pressure on Americans’ wages.

Bringing jobs and industries back to America. Ending our reliance on Communist China and the cheap foreign labor of “global supply chains.” Buying and hiring American. 

Rejecting free-trade orthodoxy and defending American workers and small businesses against the predations of a global corporate oligarchy. Advancing economic nationalism rather than globalism.

Restoring government by elected representatives rather than rule by a permanent administrative state bureaucracy accountable to no one.

Ending the endless wars, military adventures that drain our blood and treasure while destroying traditional culture here and abroad.

Rebuilding America rather than embarking on nation-building projects around the world.

Breaking up the monopolies that control our media, technology, and economy and have an undue influence over our society and government.

Rejecting neo-Marxist ideology. Standing up for Western civilization, Judeo-Christian culture, and traditional values of God, personal responsibility, and protection of the inalienable rights granted by our Creator, not the government.

It was under this banner that President Trump brought record numbers of blacks, Latinos, and blue-collar Americans into the Republican fold. 

Trump’s historic victory in Florida is a case in point.

Some 55 percent of Florida’s Cuban-American vote, 30 percent of the Puerto Rican vote, and 48 percent of “other Latinos” backed President Trump, according to NBC News exit polls. They are familiar with the poison of socialism and rejected the radical leftist policies of the Democratic Party. 

At the same time, about 26 percent of black men with a high school diploma or less supported Trump, as did 22 percent of black men with bachelor’s degrees and 20 percent of black men with advanced degrees. Some 1-in-3 black men living in the Midwest also voted for him—many of whom are likely to be union members.

Chalk it up to Trumpism’s elevation of economic interest—personal and national—over transnational racial and gender identity.

President Trump’s party is now the party of working people rather than the country club set. The Democratic Party has become the party of professionals—financiers, academics, tech entrepreneurs, and credentialed elites. 

The American people validated President Trump’s America First policies on November 3. The president’s personality—not his policies—caused many to cast ballots for the placeholder on the Democratic Party ticket.

President Trump remade the Republican Party. However the courts and vote counters decide the outcome of this election, there is no going back to the status quo ante no matter how much Paul Ryan and his neoliberal ilk try. 

And try they will.

  1. “President Trump remade the Republican Party. However the courts and vote counters decide the outcome of this election, there is no going back to the status quo ante no matter how much Paul Ryan and his neoliberal ilk try.

    And try they will.”

    Sir, can you honestly say that after what happened on Tuesday night that those who have overthrown the nation will ever allow an honest election again? There are no more Rubicons to cross.

    • NO NO NONO. We are ‘cooked’ if WE don’t stand up and STOP

    • I agree with you. Ellis seems to try and be reassuring us which I find more disturbing than an honest discussion about voter fraud. In my view, the Republican Party is Donald Trump’s party and without him, it will wither. There is no Silver Lining if the Dems succeed in stealing this election. The real question is “Why vote at all if my vote doesn’t count?”

    • What happened on Tuesday night is still happening. The nation has not yet been overthrown. We need to stop whining and man up. Start with renewed Trump parades and rallies and sue the ass off of every corrupt election official in these Demoncrat run states. When we run out of legal options to reject the takeover, then we’ll know that “war by other means” hasn’t done the trick and more will be needed.

  2. The American people put the USA in socialism we are not going to be the same anymore no more United States of America it’s gone.

  3. The big, fat white elephant in the room is that the Democrat Party, now a subsidiary of the Communist Chinese Party, is openly cheating an openly corrupt, senile imbecile into the American presidency.

    And the tail wagging the big, fat white elephant is the majority of American voters who not only have no problem with that but passionately support it.

    Articles and opinion pieces like this one are all spin.

    • Agreed.
      Disappointed that this was published. Federalist is doing the same spin….
      We need fighters who tell the truth, not pacifiers….

  4. Mr. Curtis Ellis, why did you exclude Mr. Trump’s APPOINTING JUDGES/JUSTICES WHO ADHERE TO THE TENETS OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION – that’s thoroughly accomplished during his first term; HIS EMERGING TRUMPCARE; and his deletion of BHO’s ISLAMOMARXISED-POLICIES that he had started but islamomarxised-demonbrats, RINOs in Congress him toand obama-judges who’ve blocked PDJTS to have move faster?

  5. Well the upside is that if Biden wins the whole country will go down the toilet and I will never stop laughing at liberals including my own kids. Every day I will ask them about the Biden miracle. It will be hilarious.

  6. I notice that nobody seems to be talking about the corona virus anymore.

  7. What happened on Tuesday night is still happening. The nation has not yet been overthrown. We need to stop whining and man up.

  8. Trumpism is not done. Much like Socrates and Jesus, the attempted silencing of these great people failed.

    Trump’s enemies tortured him with lies, but that made him stronger. So on election night, they “nailed him to the cross” with mass fraud so to end his message; but this will instead resurrect his message to the masses. And if not Donald, then Donald Jr., but Trumpism will rise “from the perceived political death” by his second coming to save America someday.

  9. President Trump won the election by losing the election. Yes, the fix is in.

  10. Why hasn’t anyone on the Right talked about the real culprit? Deregulation of the Media in 1996?
    Once corporations were allowed to expand horizontally as well as vertically Media lost its independent voice. Today 95% of all media outlets are owned by 6 companies.
    That is THE problem, and has to be reversed.
