Jussie Smollett hates Donald Trump

So, yesterday I wrote a blog post about why I believe Jussie Smollett is lying about his attack. I believe he made the story completely up, as certain things he has said simply do not add up. You can read all about it here

As I was reading more regarding Smollett, I discovered several people have been digging up older tweets he wrote. One of them I found to be very disturbing regarding our president Donald Trump. 

On January 11, 2018 at 10:05 PM at night, Smollett tweeted from his iPhone in Chicago a horrible yet hateful message to Trump. I was literally appalled when I originally saw this; however, this supports my reason(s) for believing Smollett is being deceptive and is, in fact, a liar. 

I know some of you are angry with me, as you believe he's innocent and a victim, but please research his actual story properly before coming for me. 

Thank you and have a wonderful Saturday!

President Trump offers 'Dreamers' Deal

As you many of you are already aware, president Trump is definitely not hiding nor zigzagging around any issues with his latest proposal in exchange for funding the wall. A 1,000 mile wall that will cost a staggering $5.7 billion. As Trump continues to promise a safer America by creating a wall to border South America, the 45th president has made quite a few demands.

And for those of you who do not know, there are millions upon millions of undocumented, illegal immigrants which enter the land of the free and the home of the brave every year. You can read more about this here. Almost four million of them are under the age of 18. In short, president Trump has offered protection for individuals in which is referred to as "Dreamers" who are undocumented immigrants age 18 and under. Our president also made the promise not to harm any of the children. This was recently revealed in a 13-minute speech by the president earlier this afternoon.

"$800 million in urgent humanitarian aid, $805 million for drug detection technology to help secure our ports of entry, an additional 2,750 border agents and law enforcement professionals. 75 new immigration judge teams to reduce the court backlog," Trump shared in his speech earlier today. "A mechanism to allow Central American minors to apply for asylum in their home countries" he added.

“The radical left can never control our borders. I will never let it happen.”

“Liberals care more about illegal immigrants than they do about our own citizens. It's time to put America First,” Trump shared in a recent ad. Marking day 29 (four weeks and one day) since Trump shutdown the government, I think it is very clear our president is not going to allow anyone to disprove his plan.

Although a lot of democrats say Trump is throwing a temper tantrum and is acting immorally by shutting down the government, I truly believe it is both Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi who are being quite egotistical and immature. Refusing to accommodate with the president's request for funding the wall, after both politicians originally had the same interest in funding the wall, proves they glorifying their own ego and self righteous thoughts on the issue. Here is an interesting video featuring Schumer back in 2009 and here is Pelosi several years ago proving why she agrees with Trump on border security.

Creating only polarization and backlash, I think it is very clear both Schumer and Pelosi dislike Trump, as it is also evident they will not compromise with his request, making it difficult for hundreds of thousands of government workers and their families. The truth is, this is not a manufactured problematic issue which Pelosi, Schumer and their supporters believe, this is an ongoing matter and will only continue if they repudiate it. In addition, these people demanding so much from Trump.

What is wrong with this picture? Why are they ignoring our president and treating him this way? Especially when he wants what is best for our nation. What is the reason Pelosi and Schumer want to continue to reject the president's efforts and initiatives? Is it because Schumer negotiated with Trump last year regarding the wall and it fell through? Why is Trump being punished for listening to his advisors? He cares about the people, not just himself.

It is clear both Pelosi and Schumer share the same views, so why are they refusing to acknowledge Trump's requests for wall funding? These are the same people who are accusing him of using the lives of youth as bargaining chips when they clearly shared the same thoughts on immigration years ago.

Not only does our economic and labor market suffer due to illegal immigrants entering our country, both poverty (this archived article by Giorgio di Pietro is a good read) and overpopulation are increased immensely. This also creates a divide and a high risk for war and asylum (this archived article is a good read regarding this) for these people. These problems exclude drug trafficking, human trafficking, kidnapping and rape, which are modestly baffling and occur as a result. Now I am not saying every undocumented immigrant promotes crime nor is a criminal, but they do make an impact on both the economic and labor markets, as they do increase poverty, promote overpopulation and create polarization and segregation. And when I refer to immigrants, I am referring to those who are here illegally.

Why is building a wall such a big issue? Instead of attacking Trump, why not question him and his motives. Why not address ongoing issues directly to him? Why waste your energy hating him? Sure he can be a loose cannon, but this problem is extant and should never be overlooked. With that said, compromise should never divide this country.

Separating fact from fiction, I commend president Trump for wanting to enforce the immigration issue and proposing a solution and a positive resolve for the American people. The United States is the country of life, of liberty and of happiness. It is the melting pot of the planet. I believe everyone has the right to come to America, as long as they do it legally.

Drawing the line on Fake News

I voted for Donald J. Trump in 2016
in Idaho. Today, I have no regrets
and am proud of the decision
I made to help elect him as president.
Silence is golden, as duct tape is silver, but the human voice is platinum, are wise words to live by. And I am thankful everyday that I can use mine. You know, the voice. But where do we draw the line on fake news? Fake news is simply yellow journalism which is created intentionally to spread malicious propaganda, hoping the reader will not only fall for it, but spread the story. This is in addition to hoping the masses will follow, embracing the domino effect. Most of the time those who spread such agitprop are looking for a reaction from the reader and of course money from the clicks to story itself.

What really happens when you spread Fake News

An unidentified third-party may contact a media outlet about Donald Trump. The reporter who first heard of the story has decided they dislike Donald Trump for his past behavior, so this reporter has made a decision that they want to take the information about the president and exaggerate it to fit their narrative.

Without fact checking nor separating fact from fiction, the story then becomes amplified with untruths just because that reporter has decided they do not like Trump. Kind of like taking an original classic song and adding an array of pro tools to make it sound better when really the song sounds overproduced and worse. Now, does the song sound anymore truthful because of it's overproduction? Maybe this isn't the best example.

How about this? It is a fact school shootings have occurred in a fascist nation of the land of free and the home of the brave (the United States), but one must consider the legitimacy of their stories as according to the NPR (with the help of non-profit Child Trends) in an article titled 'The School Shootings That Weren't' there are quite a few that never even happened.

Was the intent to create a school shooting to strip away our 2nd amendment right? Guns are portrayed as being weapons used to kill, but nothing is mentioned about the strengths of a gun and how they can protect the people. Although you may or may not ever hear about this in the news, fake news will never cover the strengths of ever owning any kind of rifle or pistol. The fake news also camouflages the harsh realities and aftermath of school shootings and hurts real victims testimonies.

Donald Trump Tries To Stop It

The president of the United States, Donald Trump has been dubbed a "loose cannon" for calling out this ongoing, problematic issue. Because of this, people see him as the problem and not the solution. Instead of being thankful for Trump's ability to address these ongoing issues and want to fix them, they want to make him the issue. Why? It is a well known fact that those who continue to embrace various news outlets tend to overlook the problem at hand and go after anyone who uses their voice to challenge the problem.

When Trump originally coined the "fake news" term he was merely defending himself from the lies and untruths being spread about him. The 45th president of the United States used his liberty to defend others who are also a target of this type of disinformation spiel and went on to dispute the puff pieces created by various fake news outlets trying to push Hillary Clinton into office. And because most of these zines lack identity, it makes litigation extremely difficult to pursue.

The End Result

If a reporter creates a story with one-dimensional, aggregated news content, does that mean the reporter is right and the reader is wrong for questioning it? What if that reporter covers a story, but neglects the points they are trying to make by concealing their views with deconstructionism and banal reductionism based on opinion and heresy? As everyone has the right to free speech and freedom of press is embraced in more ways than one, does this mean they have the right to publish whatever they choose to a platform with a bigger audience? Fake news is equivocally fabricated and manipulated as well as, relentlessly mocked to not just media and journalism, but to those who are engaged and affected by it. And because of its nature, it can cause more harm than not. There are consequences to every action and it is crystal clear these consequences are inevitable to avoid.

This goes with the question we all have-where do we really draw the line on fake news?

God Bless The USA, I love my country

Well, tomorrow as we celebrate Independence Day, all I can think of is how much I love the land of the free and the home of the brave. We have an incredible president Mr. Donald J. Trump who does so much for our wonderful country, as his pledge to make America great again, as we have liberty and the ability to say what we think without biting our tongue. 

So, of course I took to one of my favorite apps, Smule to record one of my favorite patriotic songs, God Bless The USA by Lee Greenwood a few minutes ago. 

Enjoy my rendition of God Bless The USA by watching the video above. If it doesn't play, just click here to listen. America, I love you!

God Bless The USA by Sarah Afshar

I am very proud to be an American. Why? Because I am free. Free to think what I want and free to say what I want. I am able to embrace my liberties and exercise my rights as a citizen of the United States. Does this make me superior? No. I just love my country and proud to be an American. 

I just recorded God Bless The USA on Smule

Story Time: Why I voted for Donald Trump

I think all of you are rightfully aware that Donald J. Trump was recently elected as the 45th president of the United States of America. As a citizen of the land of the free and the home of the brave, I am proud to say that I wholeheartedly support Trump as president of the United States. Therefore, I voted for him. 

Why did I vote for Donald J. Trump?

I like what he stands for. He is an outspoken businessman and really wants to fix America on every level. Whether it means establishing jobs for Americans and fixing the ongoing homeless problem, enforcing immigration laws and protecting our country's borders, promoting a strong budget to help strengthen the economy or building a strong reform for healthcare and other benefits. 

My political beliefs and views have changed over the years. I started out as being Independent leaning towards the liberal side of the spectrum shortly before becoming conservative. After looking at every angle of the political spectrum, I realize that I wasn't examining everything fully, but rather, one-dimensionally. 

For instance: I use to be pro abortion, as I believed every woman had the right to choose what they wanted to do with their bodies; however, I learned about a friend of mine several years ago being a product of rape. And another friend of mine who had an abortion and now regrets her decision. I don't believe abortion should be used as a form of contraception; however, a decade ago I use to support this systematic analysis simply because I believed every woman had the choice. 

Granted I believe in free will, as I believe no one has the right to undermine a human's natural right. I am not ignorant and still have friends and family who are democrats and would never support Trump at all. But practically speaking, I also have the right to type this blog post as I have the right to support president Trump and his political views. With that said, I am anxious to see what plans he has for America and the American people. 

It's simple: Trump cares about the American people and wants to do great things to help this country. 

A lot of you are relatively shocked, considering I am an Iranian American woman from California (currently residing in Idaho) and Trump has a reputation for being somewhat audacious, misogynistic, and an overall loose cannon; however, separating the person's non-political past words and actions from their current promises for America and actions has what helped me make my final decision. I like what Trump wants to do for America. 

Hillary Clinton has had many years to make changes. She did nothing. She had many opportunities to make changes as the first lady. Why didn't she do so? As much as I would love for a woman to win, her promises came across as fake. And after watching her testify regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack, I don't think she is American because no American would ever say "What does it matter? He's dead anyway."

I do not think Trump is a predator nor do I see him as someone who has bad intentions. There is no proof he is a rapist either. Trump has always been modestly outspoken with his political beliefs, making him the #1 political hopeful for the presidency.  

Granted Trump has said some terrible things in the past. And although some of you may not overlook them, I think it is time to move forward from his non-political rants simply because he is a man with a voice, a vision, and a message who makes promising claims to better America and the people.

I know many of you who are liberal and/or of a democratic affiliation will come for me regarding my political views, but I am not thinking of myself here. I am thinking of what is best for this country and the people who live here. 

To dictate Trump as a monster simply because he said some fucked up shit in his past is judgmental because you would never want anyone doing the same to you. He is not ego driven nor a megalomaniac, he is simply a man who wants to genuinely help the USA and make America great again.

Just voted for Trump in Idaho

As an Iranian American, I can admit that I live in one of the best, if not the best country in the world. And as I love my life, I embrace my liberty and pursue only happiness. After all, the United States is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

As you can see from my ballot (which I have the right to post and share, as I live in Idaho where it is legal) today, I just voted for Donald J. Trump for president of the United States with Michael R. Pence as Vice President.

I voted for Trump because I believe in spite of his shortcomings, he is still a much better candidate than Hillary Clinton. And I am sick of having any "Clinton" as a leader of this country, as they prove they don't do anything while in office. With that said, I truly believe Clinton will not do anything while in office. Maybe collect funds to benefit herself and life. She has had many years to make change and has done nothing. I believe as an outspoken businessman, Trump will do so much more in office. I believe he cares about the people, which is why I support him for president.

And although Jill Stein isn't as bad as Clinton, I don't like those that spread misinformation about global warming and climate change. I also don't believe she would do anything for this country that would benefit the vast majority of status quo society. Overlooking these facts, she doesn't seem like a bad person and I think it is admirable she is running for president. Unfortunately she doesn't have my vote today.

Remember every vote counts. I have always identified with the "Independent" party in terms of political affiliation; however, I decided to go with who I thought would be a better choice for president of this country. And as much as I would love for a woman to be president, I cannot support Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein.
