It should come as no surprise to anyone that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) would announce her 2020 run for the presidency despite being mired in scandal. Last week it was reported that in 1986 Warren identified herself as a Native American on her registration card for the Texas State Bar. As a result, many of my colleagues on the right speculated that this was the evidence needed to prevent her from running for president. However, they neglected to add the left’s hatred for President Trump, and the double-standard granted to liberals by media into their equation. Liberals don’t care about scandal when it comes to their own. They care about defeating Trump!
The truth is, if Sen. Warren can survive long enough to make it to the debates, she’ll be fine. I don’t see her campaign as a threat to Trump, but of those democratic candidates that have declared for 2020, she’s a top 5 contender.
However, there is something to be said about Warren’s ability to lead given she’s lied continuously over the years about having Native American heritage, presumably to reap benefits in her career and garner accolades and sympathy amongst her peers. Even if Warren was an American Indian, Americans expect their leaders to overcome adversity, not wallow in it. It’s hard to believe that anyone would strive to become a victim in life. Let alone someone who’s intelligent, accomplished and running to be the leader of the free world. Yet, that’s exactly what Sen Warren did.
It’s just weird! Why has victimhood become such a virtue in the Democratic party? We’ve all heard of “stolen valor” – where someone lies about their military heroism. But what Elizabeth Warren has done may be even worse. I’ve coined her actions “stolen victimhood.”
Not only has Warren benefited from lying about her heritage, but she’s undermined the left’s position that American minorities still need Affirmative Action. How? Think about it. She can’t possibly believe that minorities deserve benefits or a leg up in American society when she’s stealing their grant(s), position or possibly even job by claiming to be one of them. Apparently, as a white woman, she felt entitled to receive the same benefits identity politics gives to those she claims to be fighting for.
America is the country the world’s victims retreat to for a better life. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a better life because she pretended to be a victim for decades. That may spell victory in left-leaning states like Massachusetts, but it spells loser everywhere else.
Carl Jackson was born and raised in Los Angeles, California by his mother and father until the age of 11 when his mother died unexpectedly of a chronic illness. Carl attempted to find his way as the youngest of six who were lost without the strength of their matriarch. He moved back and forth between L.A and Orlando, FL trying to find his way in life. With the help of family and friends, he was introduced to hard work, faith and family values. However, as a struggling teen he wandered down the path of least resistance, finding himself jailed twice and with a child out of wedlock, he had to fight to raise.
By the grace of God and insistence by his brother and friend, he attended an Evangelical church and found that there was a better way. Once he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, he began to develop a greater desire to understand who God is and why it mattered. He began to see that the cultural dependence on government promoted by Democratic leaders in his community rejected dependence upon God. As he studied America’s history, he discovered for the first time that despite America’s flaws, particularly slavery, God used our Founding Fathers to create our Constitution within the context of the Bible and world history. It’s divine and exceptional nature is undeniable.
It was during his newfound love for American history that he discovered the Democrat party perpetuated slavery, formed the KKK, and fought against the civil rights of minorities. With this hidden history, Carl was launched on a journey to help people of all races and backgrounds discover facts of America’s true past, as well as realize the benefits of utilizing their God-given gifts and talents which far outweigh any benefit from a government subsidy or program.
Carl is committed to persuading people of faith to get involved in the political process. Essentially becoming more than just pew warmers for Christ. Secondly, he has a goal of divorcing minorities, particularly blacks and Latino’s, from dependence upon the Democrat party — big government. He’s dedicated to communicating conservative values in laymens terms in order to reach constituents that the right has either been unable or too afraid to reach.
Today, Carl resides in Orlando, Fl with his wife and daughter. He’s a radio host for iHeart Radio, Orlando (AM540WFLA or Newsradio 93.1FM) where his show airs on Wednesday and Friday from 7-8pm. Additionally, Carl is a contributing columnist for TownHall.com, World Net Daily (wnd.com), TheConservativePundit.net and BlackCommunityNews.com.
