The Fracturing of a Nation - One Wedge at a Time - Courtesy of...the 44th President of the United States

Updated on March 31, 2017
abwilliams profile image

I took an interest in Politics at a young age. The Goldwater-Johnson race fascinated me and I've been paying attention ever since.


How Low can we Go - Have we reached the point of no return?

We've reached an all time low, here in the United States of America!

Not only is an overpaid football player, living the American dream, but seemingly unimpressed by any of that, displaying a complete and total disregard for America, many others are showing the same disregard, via disrespect of our Flag and of our National Anthem. Athletes, Celebrities, Sports fans, Students, etc., exhibiting the same bad behavior and.....

now, we have a young woman joining in, testing our Limits even more, pushing the envelope even further!

A young woman, that has more than likely, lived her life fluttering around in a little fairy tale world, ingesting and overdosing on liberal propaganda, with blinders on, oblivious to all things outside of her leftist' realm, is presented with the opportunity of a Lifetime.

(Well, what would have been seen as the opportunity of a Lifetime, to a majority, at one time in America)

A moment in time, under the lights, in the Spotlight, with the Honor of singing our National Anthem!

(Nowadays....sadly, I just don't know, so many wedges have been put in place)

During her moment in the Spotlight, she chose a different course, she dramatically dropped to her knees.

No, it wasn't due to the onset of a debilitating charley horse.

No, she didn't appear to be Giving Thanks.

No, very doubtful that she was overcome with emotion or feeling Patriotic.

Oh No.....none of that.

It was an Act of Solidarity, against herself, for being white!

Oh Yes! She said it herself, it was an Act of Solidarity, against white privilege.

So, in her mind, falling to her knees, (and this part was crucial, timing was of utmost importance, as she Acted her part.....I mean, in her ACT of solidarity) the precise moment the words "Land of the Free - Home of the Brave" were being sung!

I really need someone that wears little fairy tale wings and blinders, but is still capable of explaining things, to explain this to me, because I am completely puzzled by it and by this entire 'movement'.

Is it a movement when it involves:

  • Disrespecting your Country.
  • Disrespecting Patriots.
  • Disrespecting Veterans.
  • Disrespecting men and women putting their lives on the line, day in and day out.
  • Disrespecting the families of those putting their lives on the line, day in and day out.
  • Disrespecting the memory of those that died in battle, including those that had a part in keeping that grand old flag flying during the historic battle at Ft. McHenry, which led to the writing of the famous words that would eventually become our National Anthem?
  • Disrespecting yourself?

How does any of this benefit anybody?

It doesn't!

What is gained and what the heck does it have to do with White Privilege?!?

Which brings me to Barack Obama...

Barack Obama, his Dad, other family members, his Mentors and his Heroes have (or had) a warped view of America. Theirs, an Anti-Colonialism ideology, opposed to everything that America represents! From America's Founding and on through to present day, they find fault with the whole idea of America.

I'm not speculating, he commented on this subject long before he was President and since then, he has spoken of America in a derogatory manner on numerous occasions!

When Obama talked so often during the campaign about transforming America, he wasn't talking about changing it back from a Republican-run to a Democratically-run Country.

He wasn't talking about easing regulations and taxes to allow for more opportunities for Entrepreneurs;Entrepreneurs of all races, colors, genders, religions.

He wasn't talking about cleaning up, once and for all, Democratically-run inner cities, where community after community of families, do not feel safe in their own homes, because they aren't safe.

His, has been a Mission to get back at a Country for reasons, only he and this mindset can clarify.

Does he believe America shouldn't exist as a Sovereign Nation... By, For and Of the People? Does he believe that this Nation can never be forgiven for mistakes of the past or does he believe this Nation can be forgiven, but it will have to come at a costly price?

Not rhetorical, these things I question.

Once past the campaign, after he had become President, there was an incident in which a black college professor was confronted by a white police officer. It turned out that it was a case of mistaken identity, but, the President of the United States inserted himself into this private situation, which would have been worked through and worked out, as all cases are on a daily basis. But, nevertheless, he did get involved in it and made sure that all of America and all of the world knew that he was involved in it, by speaking of it, as if he were there, privy to all the details.

He wasn't!

He did the same thing with an incident between a Hispanic male and a young black man. An incident that went terribly wrong and saddened the Nation, it was tragic. Obama could have eased tensions, but he did not, instead, he chose to add fuel to the flame. He spoke on the if he were there, privy to all of the details, before all of the details were even available.

He wasn't!

He has done this repeatedly throughout his Presidency:

  • At every opportunity to strengthen us, he has worked to weaken us.
  • At every opportunity to Unite us, he has placed wedges.
  • At every opportunity to help heal, he has rubbed salt into wounds.

Obama has used his Platform to belittle, insult, guilt and call out, those that he can't see or refuses to see, as a part of America. These same Citizens want to be assured, but have become skeptical, that their President, has their back too!

Faced with day to day struggles, trying to make ends meet, worrying about an enemy that has infiltrated, intent on destroying their Homeland, they do not need the additional stress that comes with this unwelcome and unnecessary added conflict!

As a result of this President's insertion into private matters, a routine traffic stop has now become anything but routine!

Everyone is on edge.

Police officers have been targeted, literally.....and so they are definitely on edge!

Race relations have been setback.

False Narratives will go down in history as 'The Gospel', all because "The Transformation President", was on a Mission.....

A Transfor-Mission!

His 'transfor-mission' has branched out into Sports, into schools, and into other areas, throughout this land.

It has led to many Americans, disrespecting America during the National Anthem and now it has reared its ugly head again, into the actual performance of the singing of our National Anthem and I, personally, find it all...



I've always loved football.

When younger, I'd play every time there was an opportunity and I grew up as a lover of all sports, nothing has changed.

I was so looking forward to this football season.

But, lately, I've been experiencing symptoms of football withdrawal because I've entered into a self-imposed boycott of the NFL, until people come to their senses, I'll not be watching or listening to any NFL games.

I know of several others that aren't watching either.

Will it make a difference? I don't know for sure, but I can hope!

Extra time on my hands to Pray for the misguided multitudes and extra time on my hands to Pray for America!

      Off Subject...again...well...maybe not!

      Just heard that Sean Hannity (Fox News) now has a Target on his back. (can I say that?)

      O'Reilly is gone, Sean's next.... hmmm I'm having a very hard time believing these guys are assaulting women on a regular basis, but I've not been present, I'm simply utilizing reason and common sense and none of this makes any sense!

      I'm not one to jump on the 'Let's Destroy People we don't like' train, whether they're Conservative or not.

      If I do not like the 'personality', I make the choice not to tune in!

      I'm picturing a future in television News with no one but Rachel Maddow on every single channel, every single moment of every single day. Yikes (can I say that?) I'd never tune in.

      We knew he'd return somehow! LOL.. Can't keep a good man down!....You really can't be stopped from commenting as a guest. Lately, we seem to have an awful lot of people signing on simply to comment or ask a question. They have no intention of joining as a member.

      Now we have a legendary troll, with the freedom to print what he chooses. What's the worse that can happen? Looks to me like certain people may need to protect their backsides....:)

      Everyone should be given the opportunity to make their case.

      There are two sides to every story and on this particular day... in the year 2017, Free Speech is still alive and kicking in the Good ole U.S.A.

      Me too. I hope that we haven't seen the last of him.

      Taze....If you're out there, some of us are missing you!

      Paula 6 days ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      LOL wouldn't doubt it! I hope he'll come back to at least visit & let us know who he is. I think he can still comment as a guest, but I'm not sure.

    • abwilliams profile image

      abwilliams 6 days ago from Central Florida

      Okay gotcha!

      Maybe Taze was able to get in one more Act of T.R.O.L.L.

      I'm sorry. I should have been clearer....If he hadn't been banned yet as of these comments, WHO wrote the statement in blue lettering about him having been banned??! Have never, ever seen that before.

      About "banning"~ ab....if you click on that blue lettering it will take you to his site, which is completely empty & wiped out except to say that "this person has been banned from HP." THAT is a sure sign of a permanent BAN.

    • abwilliams profile image

      abwilliams 6 days ago from Central Florida

      Taze posted on this particular article before he was banned.

      I was surprised when he was banned.

      It was during a fiery Forum discussion about climate change. All were equally passionate, but he (Taze) was banned.

      I don't know if it's a temporary ban or if bans are permanent. ??

      Paula 7 days ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      ab....I know it's late at night, but that's not why I'm confused. I just spotted the blue letters above the comments by Taze (???) He has been banned? because of Promisem & Dean Traylor (aka lib cry babies?) I'm sorry to hear that but not surprised.

      My confusion stems from: Has he posted these comments here as a "guest" sign-in using his Hub name? Pls. fill me in....I've never seen anyone be able to post as the same person after being banned.

      abwilliams 7 days ago from Central Florida

      I know that you read this....Hoping!

      Sorry to disappoint.

      Trump hasn't had time to prove himself yet. Too early to tell, but he doesn't condemn America.

      Obama constantly condemned America.

      Did he not?

      He doesn't pit one group against another. Obama constantly pitted.

      Did he not?

      As if he didn't have enough to do, President Obama stuck his nose where it didn't belong; in police matters, for example.

      Did he not?

      Trump recognizes that he has his hands full as President.

      This article has Barack Obama written all over it!

      That's fine, if you don't get a lump in your throat when the National Anthem is performed, I'll not hold that against you!

      There's a big difference in indifference and making a mockery.

      Have you seen the video of the Fed Ex driver rescuing the flag from a group of flag burners. First he uses his fire extinguisher and then takes the flag with him. Talk about stepping into the lion's den. Our flag obviously means a lot to him! Admirable!

      I am a little tired of all these people who have turned are flag and its Veterans in to an advertisement. I respect the flag but i am pretty uncertain of those who sometimes hold it. Its not my god and its not my country. Its a symbol and of protocol not to represent any individual in which it has been abused many times for. Its not a commercial made by people who sacrifice nothing to convince me to buy their product to a claim patiotismn. What I hate even more our those who never served who walk around wearing a uniform and actors who never served playing the parts of great people who did. Atleast some of them did good playing the part. I do not get all emotional when people do not show their respect. Why should such a person not play the part of how they really feel. In otherwords we are better off to know who they are. I would not want anyone who does not qualify as a patriot to pretend they are one. The quetion is wich side is really prepared to carry the flag.

      The person who would make the statement, "America was never great" is the person that was swooning when Obama talked of transforming her and they were most likely crying in their chocolate milk last night, as he bid them Farewell!

      Some things just cannot be explained Taze!

      Well my friends, you don't have to look far to find the nonsense they spew. This from a hubber just 2 days ago:

      "When was the United States ever "great"?

      To answer your question: Since I and many other people feel that the United States has never been great, we also believe that Trump was not elected by popular vote, or the electoral college. Just like all who came before, he was hand picked by the ruling elite long before the election cycle began."

      WBA and abw, (that's weird - oh, what what he said too) it makes you wonder exactly what is wrong with people who make statements like that. Do they actually believe this made up reality of theirs or are they simply trying to spread hate and division by appealing to the angry, emotionally disturbed or mentally deficient? Or are they just the duped victims of propagators of the hate, spewing their nonsense themselves?

    • abwilliams profile image

      abwilliams 3 months ago from Central Florida

      I agree! Aren't some of those psychotic leftist hippies, Obama's heroes and mentors?

      He obviously isn't impressed with America and he will not stop working to transform this Country into his vision (don't think that once he's left the White House, we'll have heard the last of him)

      I also agree with you on Liberals. They're always seeking to fill the void that (in my opinion) only God can fill.

      I'm starting to like New York more and more!

    • profile image 3 months ago from upstate, NY

      I'm beginning to think Barack Obama and his ilk still have the same mindset as those psychotic leftist Hippie's had in the 1960's. Maybe they actually believe some of the nonsense they spew but my guess is that every move they make is shrewdly calculated to inflict maximum damage on our society.

      As to the reasons that so many seem to live in this liberal fairyland, I tend to see it as leftist religion that has replaced the true God. And I'm also an upstate New Yorker from the Adirondack foothills.

      I have a friend who lives in upstate NY and according to him it's nothing like down state. His parents live in down state in West Chester county, 1 acre on the Hudson River, outside NY city...what a view!

      A neighbor on one side is a famous author and the other neighboring property is owned by the Rockefellers. Their house is not a mansion but take a guess what the taxes are on that house in West Chester county NY.

      $55,000/year. Yep the school taxes alone are over $20,000/year.

      Deep blue state of NY, and who says the Republican's are the party of the rich?

      Love it!

      My mother-in-law is originally from Upstate New York and she has always said the same thing.

      Unfortunately for us, many of your "Downstaters", have migrated South, namely to South Florida.

      Good News for New Yorkers, bad News for Florida, we now have 2 Floridas, an Upstate and a Downstate!

      Paula 6 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      Hey! E-Z on New York!! You may beat the heck out of Andrew, in fact please take him on a long ride somewhere. I only defend this State because for me it's "Home." More than anyone out of State, I'm well aware of our flaws and faults. But just like a "rotten kid," we love her anyway.

      If you must know, there are really 2 New Yorks....Upstate & Downstate....practically 2 different worlds. Upstaters are actually almost real people....honest. (and most importantly of all, we do NOT have even the slightest Brooklyn accent!)

      ab.....Welcome aboard the Buffalo Bills Fan club! (Yes, we did kick butt on Sunday! :)

      Taze.....we have a lot of GOOD things besides the Bills.....have you never pigged out on authentic Chicken Wings?

      The Buffalo Bills may be the only good thing that comes out of NY! You know, the state whose governor Governor Andrew Cuomo famously told conservative Republicans – specifically anyone who is pro-traditional marriage, pro-life or pro-guns – they "have no place in the state of New York".

      New York's official state motto is Excelsior, often translated as "ever upward", but if he had his way, he's prefer it to say "ever liberal".

      Are we sure Buffalo is in NY?

    • abwilliams profile image

      abwilliams 6 months ago from Central Florida

      Just heard that the Buffalo Bills put a real hurtin' on Colin Kaepernick and the San Fran 49ers.

      Aww...yay, makes my day!

      Also, heard that the Bill's Fans went above and beyond, putting our great Country back in the spotlight, right where our Country belongs.

      I may have just become a Buffalo Bills fan for life!

      Paula 6 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

      ab....This surpasses any great speech I have heard in a very long time. Factual, moving and profound. It is near perfection and the only thing more I will say is: You speak patriotism, justifiable disgust, factually & graced with inspiration. You speak for me and I thank you. Peace, Paula

      Dont Taze Me Bro 6 months ago from TWO OF THE MANY LYING LIB CRYBABIES OF HUB PAGES

      I share your feelings AB. And yes we have reached the point of no return. The proof of it is we the patriots of the America we love are forced in a desperate attempt to resolve a serious problem (the path we are on) at the last minute (the November election).

      Since you like football this is fitting, we are in the final seconds of the game (the path America is on) and we are forced to have to make a desperate pass (vote for Trump) at the end of the game that is hoped may gain some points and win the game (save America from destruction).

      The ball is in the air and on November 8th it comes down in the end zone. Will it be caught by the patriots or will it be intercepted or blocked by the enemy....? I fear if it is a completion it won't be enough points to win the game but only tie sending us into overtime where we could still lose if Trump doesn't perform.

      SO given the odds of Hail Marys, yes I'd have to say we have reached the point of no return.
