Trump Ends Obama’s 12-Year Run As America’s Most Admired Man

Published

on

President Donald Trump knocked off former President Barack Obama as America’s “most admired man” in 2020, according to a Gallup survey.

Trump edged out his predecessor with 18% of the vote to Obama’s 15%, according to Gallup. Former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden ranked third in the contest with 6%, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, finished fourth with 3%.

The rest of the top 10 is rounded out by Pope Francis, businessman Elon Musk, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, NBA star LeBron James, and the Dalai Lama.

Since 1946, Gallup has polled Americans on which man and woman they admire most. Obama has dominated the contest in recent years and had ranked on top of the list for 12 years running until 2020. In 2019, Obama and Trump tied for the top place honor with 18%.

Trump was buoyed in the contest by his high popularity among Republicans while Democrats split their choice for most admired man among a few notable figures. Trump was the pick of 48% of Republicans with no other name getting more than 2% of Republican votes. Democrats split their votes between Obama (32%), Biden (13%), and Fauci (5%). Independents went equally for Trump and Obama at 11% each.

“This year marks the 10th time Trump has finished among the top 10 men, including four times before he entered party politics – 1988 through 1990 and 2011. Gates has finished in the top 10 a total of 21 times, while Obama has now done so 15 times and the Dalai Lama 11 times. Biden has been in the top 10 once before, in 2018, while Fauci and James are new to the list,” Gallup reported.

Evangelist Billy Graham, who died in 2018, has the most top 10 finishes on the list, more than any other man by far with 61. He is followed by former President Ronald Reagan, who died in 2004, who is second with 31. Former President Jimmy Carter has the most top 10 finishes in the poll of any living president at 29.

Trump appears to be leaving the White House next year, though he has not yet conceded the presidential race to Biden and continues to lob allegations that widespread voter fraud contributed to Biden’s win. Trump and his allies have yet to prove enough instances of fraud in court to affect the outcome of the election.

On Dec. 14, Biden secured the Electoral College vote and is heading to a 302-232 victory over the incumbent president. Congress will meet on Jan. 6 and is expected to certify Biden as the winner.

Trump still enjoys support from a majority of Republicans, who say that if the sitting president were to run again in 2024, they would vote for him. As The Daily Wire reported in November:

A majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters would vote for President Donald Trump if he decides to run again in 2024.

Trump received 54% support of those who were asked whom they would back if the 2024 GOP presidential primary were held today, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released Tuesday. Compared to Trump, most other prominent Republicans barely registered, with the next-highest percentages going to Vice President Mike Pence at 12% and Donald Trump Jr. at 8%.

Something New Spotted In The DC Sky

Published

on

What’s happening right now in DC is bizarre, to say the least, and completely creepy and un-American.

DC looks like a scene straight out of the “Hunger Games,” and it’s creeping a lot of people out, and for good reason.

This is not the “American spirit” on display – it looks like we’re installing Kim Jong Un as the new US president, and it’s not sitting well with anyone, as far as I can tell online.

Biden’s claims that Ameria would experience a “dark winter” appear to be coming true…but he left out the “communist” part.

And now, things appear to get getting even creepier.

Someone just shot a video of a new “object” in the skies over the nation’s capital.

The video claims to be a clip of an “Osprey” flying over DC.

For those of you not hip to “military machinery” lingo an Osprey is described this way online:

The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing, and short takeoff and landing capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

You can watch the video below:

Earlier today the Capitol was shut down and everyone went into complete panic mode when some smoke was seen off in the distance.

Watch:

Later reports indicate this was some fire coming from a homeless camp, for crying out loud, but you can imagine the “fear porn” the state-run media ran with.

They really want to cook up a story here that MAGA is about to attack the country and that President Trump led this so-called insurrection.

If things are really this “dangerous” then call the whole thing off and do your install in private. There’s no reason, except “political theatre” at this point, to put on this Kim Jong Un “show of force.”

It’s weird, wrong, and further dividing an already divided country.

Testing For NYC’s Gifted And Talented Student Program Is Deemed Unfair, Will Be Eliminated

Published

on

Most of New York City’s public schools offer a “gifted and talented” program for aspiring students. Yearly performance tests are offered to identify the kids who are overperforming in the standard disciplines. Those who qualify are entered into advanced placement programs with more demanding curricula, giving them an easier path to admission to better colleges. The programs are open to all and don’t cost anything extra, so every family has the opportunity to try to get their children in.

Unfortunately for Gotham’s parents, the results have failed to meet the expectations of the woke crowd running the city government. Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza have repeatedly complained that the testing program is “unfair” because the students who wind up in the program “don’t reflect the diversity of the city’s population.” In other words, not enough Black and Hispanic students wind up in the advanced programs. So how does the brain trust at City Hall plan to “fix” this issue? Easy as pie. They’re going to do away with the entrance tests. (CBS New York)

A big change is coming for New York City’s “gifted and talented” programs for students.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza say the city will start phasing out the entry exam.

Critics have said the composition of the programs do not reflect the city’s diversity.

The Chancellor took to Twitter to attempt to paint some lipstick on this pig.

So you’re going to “reimagine academic and enrichment programming for our most exceptional students?” What does that even mean? You can’t really have an advanced placement program without having some way to identify the students who are truly advanced and would be able to thrive in a more challenging educational environment. Aside from placement testing, how do you propose to do that?

Mayor de Blasio has been railing against the gifted and talented programs for years, but it’s always been a bit of a sticky issue for him to try to handle. The problem is that the “lack of racial diversity” he loves to complain about doesn’t break down in the normal fashion. If it was just a case where the lion’s share of the spots in the program were going to White students, he could simply play the race card and stomp on the programs. Unfortunately for them, that’s not the case. Year after year, the majority of the seats have gone to Asian students.

The difference in results is particularly stark when you look at the scores on a per capita basis. Asians make up only 14.1 percent of the city’s population, far behind Black, Hispanic and White residents. And yet their students outperform the rest by a wide margin. So this largely deprives de Blasio of the chance to play the race card. And if he eliminates the testing program, he’s going to be cutting off one of the city’s minority populations in a massively disproportionate fashion.

Sadly for the students who will be most heavily impacted, when Democratic politicians talk about minorities, they almost always forget about Asians. In their minds, the word “minority” only applies to Black and Hispanic residents, even though both outnumber Asians across the board in all but a few localized communities.

So if you’re going to do away with the admissions testing system, how do you replace that with something that produces your desired demographic result? If it just works out to be some sort of lottery, then why have an advanced studies program at all? You’re not going to randomly pick up the most advanced students. Further, how is that fair to the children? If a kid who isn’t able to score well on the placement tests suddenly gets shoved into a significantly more advanced program, they’re almost certainly going to flounder. Then you have to either boot them back to the regular school curriculum or dumb down the advanced class to the point where they can pass. If you follow the latter route, you’ve eliminated the benefit of having a gifted and talented program in the first place.

This is simply more virtue signaling from the de Blasio administration and racial pigeonholing madness. All they’re going to do is further erode the New York City public school system and make it even harder for kids to get into college. But that’s obviously a small price to pay when you’re trying to make it look like you’re actually fighting racism, I suppose.

Dr. Fauci Issues Another Dire Warning As Biden Vows To Lead With Science And Truth

Published

on

Just when you thought civil unrest and other concerns had taken COVID-19 out of the public eye for a while, Dr. Anthony Fauci pops up again. Because you were not sufficiently panicked over a more contagious strain of COVID-19 found in the U.K., he has some more news. On Meet the Press, he told host Chuck Todd that “more ominous” strains have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil.

What does that mean? He can’t tell you, because they are still being studied. So, without articulating the risks these strains could pose, he injects this warning into the national consciousness. That is flat-out irresponsible in a nation that has been dragged through nearly a year of conflicting information, dystopian mitigation measures that affect the mental and economic health of millions, and the personal destruction of anyone offering any dissenting view to Fauci’s.

Viruses mutate. This is not news. A significant body of research posits that viruses most often mutate to become more transmissible and less virulent. The 1918 influenza that killed millions of people still circulates today. According to researchers from Yale, we needn’t worry unnecessarily about virus mutations, even in COVID-19

It is time to reshape our conception of mutations. Mutations are not indicative of outlandish and devastating new viral characteristics. Instead, they can inform our understanding of emerging outbreaks. Any claims over the consequences of mutation demand careful experimental and epidemiological evidence. Mutation is an inevitable consequence of being a virus.

Dr. Fauci offered no reason to refer to these new strains as “ominous,” or his claim that the U.K. strain is now dominant. There has been no corresponding spike in COVID-19 deaths in states that have been open since early summer. Looking at Georgia’s data, the trend is just the opposite. Despite a higher number of positive tests than in the early days of the pandemic, the deaths with COVID-19 are about half of what they were in the spring. This could be the result of an improvement in the treatment of the virus or because of a mutation to a less virulent strain. We don’t know and won’t without in-depth study.

The new panic porn comes just as President-elect Joe Biden has announced science’s primacy in his administration. He is reportedly elevating the director of science and technology policy to a cabinet-level position:

“We’re going to lead with science and truth,” Biden said at a speech introducing his new appointees in Delaware on Saturday. “We believe in both.”

The last year has been a preview of what happens when science rules all other considerations. There has been incredible pressure to do exactly what the scientists in the federal bureaucracy prescribed. Any outside points of view were quashed by the media, research institutions, and government employees. Letting only science dictate policy has had devastating results because the scientists have narrow expertise and a few goals related to it. Here are a few highlights from a list of the deleterious effects on personal health compiled by Tom Elliot from Grabien:
Deaths increasing among those on waiting lists whose treatment were displaced by COVID-19 lockdowns
Rising suicides nationwide
Drug overdoses in the U.S. have increased by 18%, with 40 states reporting an increase in opioid-related deaths
Lockdown measures for the pandemic could result in an additional 6.3 million cases of T.B. and 1.4 million deaths
25% of Americans 18-24 have contemplated suicide during the pandemic
Delays in treatment and screening for cancer that are forecasted to lead to avoidable deaths that could rival the pandemic
Death tolls from non-COVID-19 causes such as diabetes, heart attacks, and treatable cancers on the rise

This does not even consider the economic damage caused by the closure of small businesses and the effects that may last years for children deprived of in-person learning. This is the fundamental problem with letting science from the narrow field of epidemiology almost completely govern the response to COVID-19, excluding all other concerns.

Science is the pursuit of knowledge and is rarely “settled.” It is also best accomplished outside the government, where the process is not as vulnerable to political and other pressures. Science is not a religion you have faith in. Rather, you believe in the validity and utility of the scientific method. This distinction matters, and the results will be tragic if the distinction is not made.
