He previously went back in time to the year 1955 in the first Back to the Future movie.


If you could jump into a time travelling DeLorean taxi, would you rather live in the America of 1955 or the America of 2015?  Has the United States changed for the better over the last 60 years?  Many fondly remember the 1950’s as the “golden age” of America.  We emerged from World War II as the wealthiest and most powerful nation on the planet.  During that time period, just about anyone that wanted to get a job could find a job and the U.S. middle class was the largest and most prosperous in the world.  Back in 1955, America was still considered to be a “land of opportunity” and the economy was growing and robust.  There was less crime, there was less divorce, the American people had much less debt and the world seemed a whole lot less crazy.  Most of the rest of the world deeply admired us and wanted to be more like us. 

There was no Internet back in 1955.  Instead of being able to go online and read the articles that you wanted to read, your news would have been almost entirely controlled by the big media companies of the day.  So there are definitely some advantages that we have today that they did not have back in 1955.  But not all of the changes have been for the better.  America is under assault by radicals who wish to destroy it. 

So which version of America would you rather live in?

America 1955 vs. America 2015 – you make the call….

In 1955, a gallon of gasoline cost about 27 cents.

In 2015, a gallon of gasoline costs $1.90.

In 1955, you could buy a first-class stamp for just 3 cents.

In 2015, a first-class stamp will cost you 49 cents.

In 1955, more than 80 percent of all men were employed.

In 2015, less than 65 percent of all men are employed.

In 1955, the average duration of unemployment was about 12 weeks.

In 2015, the average duration of unemployment is over 40 weeks.

In 1955, the average family spent about 22% of its income on housing.

In 2015, the average family spends about 43% of its income on housing.

In 1955, gum chewing and talking in class were some of the major disciplinary problems in our schools.

In 2015, making a gun shape with your finger and thumb gets students hauled away in handcuffs by police. 

In 1955, mothers decided what their children would eat for lunch.

In 2015, a power mad, fascist First Lady decides what your children can eat for lunch, and it looks like prison food.

In 1955, the tax burden was low enough that an average middle class family could live on one income.  Mothers were free to stay home with their children and there was no need for daycare.

In 2015, 71% of American workers make less than $50,000 a year, the minimum needed to support a family of four in a middle class lifestyle.  Government offers to subsidize daycare at ever younger ages, while the Statists hope you don’t remember that their high taxes have caused the need for daycare in the first place.

In 1955, the United States was #1 in GDP per capita in the world.

In 2015, the United States is #15 in GDP per capita in the world.

In 1955, redistribution of wealth was considered to be something that “the communists” did.

In 2015, the U.S. government redistributes more wealth than anyone else in the world.

In 1955, about 13 million Americans had manufacturing jobs and manufacturing accounted for about 54% of the economy.

In 2015, less than 12 million Americans have manufacturing jobs even though our population has more than doubled since 1955.  Manufacturing is now only 8.8% of our economy.

In 1955, the entire U.S. military was mobilized to protect the borders of South Korea.

In 2015, the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada are wide open and now there are 1.4 million gang members living inside the United States.

In 1955, there were about 2 million people living in Detroit and it was one of the greatest cities on earth.

In 2015, there are about 713,777 people living in Detroit and it has become synonymous with a desolate, crumbling wasteland, and a symbol of Democrat Party mismanagement and corruption.

In 1955, the median age at first marriage was about 22 for men and about 20 for women.

In 2015, the median age at first marriage is about 28 for men and about 26 for women.

Back in 1955, about 71 percent of all American adults were married.

In 2015, only about 50 percent of all American adults are married.

In 1955, many Americans dressed up in suits and dresses before getting on an airplane.

In 2015, security goons grope and sexually assault us before they are allowed to get on to an airplane.

In 1955, each retiree’s Social Security benefit was paid for by 16 workers.

In 2015, each retiree’s Social Security benefit is paid for by approximately 2.1 workers.

In 1955, many Americans regularly left their cars and the front doors of their homes unlocked.

In 2015, many Americans live with steel bars on their windows and gun sales are at record highs.

In 1955, the American people had a great love for the U.S. Constitution.

In 2015, if you are “reverent of individual liberty and the Constitution”, you get labeled as a potential terrorist by the U.S. government.

In 1955, the United States loaned more money to the rest of the world than anybody else.

In 2015, the United States owes more money to the rest of the world than anybody else.

In 1955, the U.S. national debt was about 257 billion dollars.

In 2015, the U.S. national debt is 59 times larger. It is currently sitting at a grand total of $18 trillion.  Surely our children and our grandchildren will thank us for that.

So is America 2015 a better version than America 1955 was?

Have we made progress since then or are we going backwards?

HERE Is WHAT WILL HAPPEN If The DEEP STATE TAKES DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP & It’s NOT PRETTY … FOR THEM “The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson ELDER PATRIOT – Corrupt politicians ignore Jefferson’s directive to their own detriment. It’s no longer political, it’s personal. Americans have had their eyes opened by the ascension of Donald Trump and no amount of leftwing money can put the Freedom Movement genie back in the bottle. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz made that observation after reviewing the results of the 2016 elections and the expectations of the voters. Cruz, who had the most high profile personality clash with Donald Trump during the Republican primary process nevertheless embraced Trump’s America First agenda and said, “If we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly.” Candidate Trump promised many things – border control, lower taxes, fairer trade relations, a balanced budget, healthcare that puts the people first not the government, safer communities, and – to the extent possible – an end to foreign wars. What, among those promises, should any Republican, nay any American, have a problem with? After four months without a single legislative achievement, Congressional and Senatorial Republicans – notably John McCain, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham – have joined the Democrats in investigating President Trump absent a single shred of evidence that an underlying crime has been committed. So, what gives? Well, there was one additional promise that Trump made on his way to the White House that has some Republicans joining with Democrats and quaking in their boots, Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp.” As we reported yesterday, “An F.B.I. agent with ‘intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case’ told us that they uncovered evidence of such massive corruption that the agents involved realized that damned near the entire government could be brought down.” The criminal co-conspirators in both parties realized almost immediately that the new sheriff wasn’t interested in joining them in the swamp so they launched, what can only be characterized as, a coup attempt. Democrats are well schooled in such things probably because of their close alliance with Marxist regimes that can only gain power by seizing it through bloody civil wars. It should be noted that the Democratic Party has already done this once before. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven years ago the Democrats waged a war against the First Republican President Abraham Lincoln for giving Blacks their freedom. That war came at a high price, as many as 700,000 Americans died fighting for what they believe in. To put that in perspective, these casualties exceed the nation’s loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam. Today, Americans are still prepared to fight and die to protect their children’s God-given freedoms. Despite what you are reading and hearing in the mainstream media, they aren’t the leftwing-funded rioters, the pussy hat-wearing feminists, or the cuck bois that cant handle a micro aggression. No, the Americans that back Donald Trump are well armed. Donald Trump’s presidency will move forward politically lest the sixty million patriots who voted for him, that are comprised of the large majority of military voters, police, and NRA members, move it forward by force. These patriots are armed, trained, prepared, and have proven their discipline. They have grown disgusted by the corruption in Washington and will do whatever is necessary to make sure Trump’s Freedom Agenda moves forward and under the direction of Donald Trump himself. No amount of fake news based on unsubstantiated charges by unnamed sources is going to change that. The battle lines have been drawn and no amount of finger pointing is going to convince these patriots to let anyone overturn the election results. So why are establishment politicians courting a bloodbath on the streets of America that will also threaten them personally when they could be part of Making America Great Again? It’s because they have been caught red-handed and up to their eyeballs in a worldwide criminal conspiracy that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with defrauding the American taxpayers. And, now that they’ve been caught robbing the world’s largest bank – the U.S. treasury – they have chosen to go out in a blaze of glory rather than try to defend the indefensible at trial. Washington’s criminal elites have chosen to go to war to unseat our duly elected president. It’s time to make our voices heard before this turns very ugly. Buckle your chin strap, America is counting on you. EDITORS NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ARMS BUT RATHER AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE DEEP STATES OVERTURNS A DUELY ELECTED PRESIDENT. HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
