The Trump Effect

He says it and it happens.

There is ample evidence that Trump is rapidly advancing his agenda despite the Liberal Federal Courts. The most impressive accomplishment is the current reduction in illegal border crossings.  This has been accomplished with the promise of the Wall and the return to established immigration laws. There are other signs of the Trump Effect that are unmistakable.

I attended a DeKalb County GOP meeting last night and was delighted with the transformation this group has made to embrace “bottom-up” political action.  For years the DeKalb GOP was a “top-down” organization.  We started trying to reform it in 2013 with an infusion of Constitutional Populists, but failed.  We succeeded in 2015 and elected a team to turn it around.  Now in 2017, this group is functioning brilliantly. The difference I think is the Trump Effect.

I attribute the earlier dysfunction with the corruption imposed by Obama. He was a “top-down” President who forced his Marxist agenda with massive bribes to State Legislatures. They took the grants and the money and succumbed to the strings attached to the grants. The result was a legislature that didn’t follow the will of the voters. From 2010 to 2017 Obama attacked the Tea Party in particular and the “Establishment Republicans” followed his lead and turned on “Constitutional Republicans”, hounding them out of office.

Trump changed all that.  He ran against the Democrats, the Globalists and the Republican Establishment and won. He called an end to Republican division and it happened.

I am scheduled to attend the Georgia GOP State Convention in June.  I’ve attended these state conventions since 2013 and they were over-controlled, full of dirty tricks and rigged to ensure the “top-down” style that stifled voter objections to the Obama policies being implemented by our Republicans. Conservative candidates that challenged “Establishment GOP incumbents were totally destroyed. Despite this, Georgia remained a Republican-controlled State, because they weren’t as bad as the Democrats.

I started this Tea Party in 2011 to fight the local UN Agenda 21 policies I saw Republicans implementing. I won a lot of these battles, but the resistance was considerable. The “establishment” opposition included the entire power structure, but the voters were on my side. We defeated the 2012 T-SPLOST and avoided wasting $Billions on a transportation plan that accomplished nothing.

We still have a lot of clean-up to do in Georgia, but all of it is included on Trump’s punch-list. I look forward to seeing this clean-up continue.
