Is the Tide Turning?

AMAC Exclusive – By Herald Boas

radical definition surrounded by shadow

Waves of political correctness, pseudo-socialism, and wokeism have washed the U.S. political shores in recent years, inundating American workplaces, schools and universities, healthcare institutions, and communication venues.

A large percentage of the citizenry who live in this country, however, do not agree with these phenomena, nor the values and assumptions underlying them.

These persons, most of whom live outside the isolated urban centers, have been finding it increasingly harder to avoid the radical waves and go about their daily lives unimpeded by the intrusions on what they consider to be what they believe in and how they conduct themselves.

Many have come to think  of the leftward lurch as permanent, and despair for their country, its institutions, and society.

However, there are now strong signals that this tide is turning, and that a new national direction lies ahead.

These signals, however, do not mean that the radicalism and its programs are over, nor even that the prospects of their disappearance are guaranteed and inevitable.

But public opinion and reaction in varying forms is changing in specific instances, and already acting as a breakwater to liberal excesses and overreach.

These changes are sometimes formal changes in government and organization, and sometimes informal developments in the culture.

Examples of formal changes include local, state and national election results, dispositive court decisions, and the revitalization of institutions.

At the local level, conservatives and moderates now dominate most non-urban elective offices, and, after a period of radical educational policies, are winning back school boards in local elections across the nation.

At the state level, conservatives and moderates are increasing their majorities in state legislatures and producing a number of outstanding governors who resist radical federal policies.

At the national level, Republicans won back control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022, and then interrupted the monolithic radical tone in Washington, DC.

In recent years, judges in lower federal courts have increasingly rejected radical legal assertions, and the U.S. Supreme Court now has a clear conservative majority.

There are also signs that schools, responding to new conservative and moderate school boards, are replacing recent radical educational policies. The signs of change in institutions of higher learning, however, are fewer, as the aggressive dominance of radical professors and administrators resists any attempt to challenge their woke notions and values which have transformed once vital colleges and universities into rigid platforms intolerant of free speech and the open exchange of ideas. This intolerance and the often egregiously high costs of a higher education, however, are beginning to force a reevaluation, as college and university enrollments are now declining.

In the less formal environment of public business activity, recent actions by consumers who reject corporate kowtowing to activist groups has signaled that radical wokeism in the marketplace is no longer acceptable. Whether it be a beer brand or department store purchase or a particular retail brand, large numbers of consumers are saying no to the politicization of the retail economy.

For years, Americans have observed the decline of their establishment media. Once important newspapers such as The New York Times and The Washington Post have become little more than propaganda sheets, and major TV networks have become apologists for one party and its ideology. Balanced and fair political coverage has almost disappeared in the print and broadcast media.

The internet and radio, however, have increasingly become the primary source of news for many consumers, and brought about the emergence of popular conservative political coverage and commentary as well as the significant loss of numbers of readers and audiences of most establishment media.

This struggle over the radicalization of the American way of life, notwithstanding the signals of resistance just cited, is far from over. Like all social movements, it is a slow battle, and a difficult one.

The likely next battleground will be the 2024 national elections. In these contests for governors, senators, and members of the U.S. House, as well as for president, conservative and independent voters will need to show up in force at the ballot box if they want to make the radical tide decisively turn, and begin a long ebb into the past.

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”

It all doesn’t mean nothing if these Communist wannabes are allowed to STEAL the NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TOO! This article talks of a Conservative majority on the Supreme Court but that’s only temporary with the advanced ages of most of the Supreme Court Justices! And since Justices are selected by the current serving President, if the national election is AGAIN STOLEN by the Blue States that means the current majority of Conservative Justices will be temporary and if the Presidentcy falls to another Communist wannabe Democrat We the People are lost! So tell me, what have Republicans done to ensure an “honest” next Presidential Election? . . . NOT ENOUGH FROM WHAT I’VE SEEN!!!

If we could guarantee that only registered voters and legal Americans, those born here or else have legal citizenship could vote. Mail in ballots should be only for military abroad and handicapped people.

We must all get involved in our elections to ensure the elections are fair and honest. We can no longer sit back and expect our representatives to represent our interests, because they have proven that they do not. It is up to you and me and all of us to vote for the smaller government that we want. We have to be involved.

That’s why the good Lord gave you all that Grey matter that occupies the cavity in your skull.

If the tide is turning, it just isn’t fast enough! We may have control now in the house, but we don’t see much action at all. All we see is a lot of talk. Will we really see any difference at all? The house holds the purse strings, but we keep seeing millions of dollars sent to Ukraine while Americans are not seeing any help, for example Maui! Really! $700.00 and they are stealing their property! It’s all a clown show!!

Stop the government from spending more money! If the red states keep subsidizing the blue states it will never end. Put caps on the government programs and keep cutting the SALT threshold. Also cut back on the green subsidies. Do all these things and suddenly the blue states will have to reform. They are long overdue for a correction.

This happens every time Democrats obtain high office. They immediately set out to push a radical agenda that not even their constituents agree is beneficial. Biden’s economic policies are hurting the Middle Class and some would say, actually destroying the Middle Class.

I will vote for the republican candidate for president in 2024. If we nominate Trump, I fear the left may tear him apart like they did in the past, and he will lose. But the left will tear apart any republican we nominate. So does that mean that free elections are over? Elections are not free? Nobody knows.

Although I do agree, the problem are the liars in the main stream media. How is it possible for an incompetent, and criminal, and provably unelected such as Biden, have anywhere close, I mean anywhere close to a 40 percentage approval rating?
I have neighbors many neighbors, good people all, they watch the brainwashing provided by the main stream media…, and surprise THEY ARE BRAINWASHED!
The BIG story of today is that poll provide Rasmussen says that they can’t provide scientific Polling because of voter fraud. But do to the conceit? Of the main stream media “that” is likely to remain unreported.

The tide will only turn when conservatives occupy the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. Only then, and only if we do something about the Communist Dems that have infiltrated and are now trying to bring this country down…I’m talking a minimum 30 years prison sentence for the top tier players in the Dem party that are constantly lying, cheating and committing treason all while trying to bring us down. The tide won’t completely turn until the problem is fixed, because the Communist Dems will continue to rear their ugly head’s every time they see an opportunity for their agenda to gain ground.
All traitors, Dems and Rino’s alike need to know there are consequences for their actions. I’m sure our forefathers would have only put up with a fraction of what we have.

Election integrity is paramount this go round. States like Pennsylvania are gearing up for a huge cheat. Comrade Biden, aka Obama, know that a Republican victory would slow their Marxist agenda. If they put Michelle up for the job, the useful idiot lemmings, will pack the drop off boxes just like the last election. Then comes digital currency for total control. Example: your digital dollars not valid at gun shops for any purchase. Tech companies and the corrupt corporate media run a majority of the country.

I don’t think any of us older people are giving enough attention to the army of young voters that activist teachers have prepared to flip our country. If we are going to get back into some kind of balance, we have to encourage everyone we know to get off their behinds and vote. Some of the ‘blue tide’ is fraud but much is these young voters who have been taught from kindergarten that capitalism, Christianity and whites are evil.

Yes, the tide IS turning and we all have to believe it and proclaim it. People are waking up and won’t put up with this garbage anymore. There will always be the brain dead that don’t have a clue. For the rest of us, the future is bright.

There is no one that would drastically curtail radicalism better than Nikki Haley. She would wipe the floor with Biden to easily get elected. She is a common sense conservative who will get things done as POTUS.
