~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Keep this simple set of facts in mind when the subject of the strength of the Democratic Party base comes up.
And keep a constant visual of this map in your head when the subject of the power of the media comes up.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
Now look at New York State
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16
Clinton won the NY state popular vote by approximately 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass New York City (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received over 2 million more votes than Trump, which means Trump won all the rest of New York State by half a million votes. (Clinton only won 4 of those counties; Trump won Richmond).
Therefore these 4 counties alone more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
Those 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT be allowed speak for the rest of our country!
To that end, In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure ALL the states were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
(This “319 Square Mile” analysis is now all over the internet, but I can find no original attribution. A friend sent it to me via email, and I first posted it at UnifiedPatriots.com April 21.
(It is, of course, about the Electoral College, not the Media.
(But it guides us toward considering the larger political question as envisioned by the Democrats and the Left in pursuing their ultimate political objective, that One Ring that rules them all?.
(And what are their principal tools?)
Consider that people still pay to see “Lion King”, on stage after 22 years, while “Russian Collusion” was written and directed so poorly it closed after only one performance. Two years of commercial hype couldn’t buy it even a single Sold-Out, SRO performance, not one standing ovation, despite the lavish praise heaped on its leaked script by the majority of the sycophantic Ellsworth Toohey media who tried to drown out the alternative media calling for it to be shut down on opening night[…]
Greg Howard, a New York Times reporterjournalist propagandist penned a piece a few days ago entitled, “Was That Racist?,” in which Howard accused white female pedestrians of not stepping aside because they’re racist or something to that effect.
Howard’s accuses Caucasian female pedestrians in his path of not “walking courteously” (meaning stepping aside to allow him to pass) thereby forcing a Black man “completely off the sidewalk” only for Howard to find himself “standing in the street or in the dirt.” I
In his propaganda piece, Howard asks why don’t these white women in “acknowledge me” is it because doing so would force them to come to grips with their fear Black men.
Fox News, Tucker Carlson on his program and Jason Whitloc, host of Fox Sports 1 takes on Greg Howard’s bias and phobia of white women (hey, just calling it by its name.)
When it gets to the point that one cannot walk the streets of Manhattan’s crowded locations without viewing a walk down East 42nd Street through the prism of race, then one should get the hell out of Manhattan….and stay away from downtown Brooklyn.
There is a reason that New Yorkers have earned the reputation of being rude and it is not that we intend to be. We are merely focusing on the path before us.
Walking down NYC streets enroute to and from work, the subway station, bus, grab lunch or run an errand, depending on the time or day and the number of people in your path requires that one put a pep in his or her step while at the maneuvering his or her way through the obstacle course that lay before them.
Anything less will turn a five-minute walk at midnight down Seventh Avenue from West 27th Street to West 42nd Street into to a 30-minute walk during rush hour or at high noon. Trust me, speed walking is not enough. The same applies to everyone, Black, White, Asian, male, female, young or old.
Greg Howard is a racist, full of crap and in serious need of therapy.
But #CNNFakeNews was not alone in “Siberia” meaning the rear of the Rose Garden. Pursuant to a tweet by Gabby Morrongiello of the New York Post, #NYTFakeNews was placed in the back as well away from the press.
The White House has put the New York Times in the last row at today’s joint press conference with Trump and Romania’s president pic.twitter.com/ChFGMDpGti
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said it was “outrageous.” And Acosta, mustering up the courage mainstream media reporters never found while Barack Obama was president, said the poor seating assignments are “not going to deter us from what we’re doing over here.” Breitbart’s Matt Boyle has described Acosta as “a vehemently anti-Trump media figure in the heart of the opposition party’s mothership CNN.”
…The New York Times was sent to the very last row a day after former FBI director James Comey revealed on Thursday while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee that the Times published a fake news story in February suggesting that Trump’s campaign had colluded with Russians a year before the 2016 election.
In an open exchange on twitter Sunday with Matthew Yglesias, editor of Vox, propagandist for the #FakeNews New York Times, Nicholas Kristof solicited Internal Revenue Service staffers for President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

It was January 27th when Donald Trump gave a stark warning to Brussels Belgium, and the New York Times mocked him for it
Asked by the Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo about the feasibility of his proposal to bar foreign Muslims from entering the United States, Mr. Trump argued that Belgium and France had been blighted by the failure of Muslims in these countries to integrate…..
LONDON — He incensed Paris and London by saying that some of their neighborhoods were so overrun with radicals that the police were too scared to enter.
He raised Scottish tempers by threatening to pull the plug on his investments there, including his luxury golf courses, if British politicians barred him from entering Britain.
Now Donald J. Trump has upset the already beleaguered people of Belgium, calling its capital, Brussels, “a hellhole.”
Asked by the Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo about the feasibility of his proposal to bar foreign Muslims from entering the United States, Mr. Trump argued that Belgium and France had been blighted by the failure of Muslims in these countries to integrate.
There is something going on, Maria,” he said. “Go to Brussels. Go to Paris. Go to different places. There is something going on and it’s not good, where they want Shariah law, where they want this, where they want things that — you know, there has to be some assimilation. There is no assimilation. There is something bad going on.”
Warming to his theme, he added that Brussels was in a particularly dire state. “You go to Brussels — I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful — it’s like living in a hellhole right now,” Mr. Trump continued.
For Belgians, already reeling from recent terrorist plots and a chronically dysfunctional government, Mr. Trump’s words were enough to induce a fit of pique worthy, in some cases, of Mr. Trump himself.
Before long, the hashtag #hellhole was gaining traction on Twitter as Belgians lashed out at Mr. Trump, deploying an arsenal of insults, irony and humor, including images of Belgium’s beloved beer and chocolate.
One Twitter user posted a picture of Mr. Trump with what appeared to be a Belgian waffle stuffed in his mouth.
“This is my hellhole,” Joseph Lemaire, a Brussels-based public relations consultant, posted on Twitter, along with several photos, including one showing the capital’s central square, the Grand Place or Grote Markt, which is flanked by stately 17th-century buildings from the city’s prosperous mercantile days….
