As an outspoken commentator, from time to time I tend to get into a little trouble on Social Media. If you are a follower on either Facebook or Twitter you will be well aware of what I mean. I would be the first to admit that there is an element of shock to my work to sometimes highlight the hypocrisy of Liberals and RINO’s.
“What happened this time Xan?” I hear you saying…. Did I call Ana Navarro a fat heartless trog? Nope…. Did I share how I am thinking maybe Kathy griffin is a drag queen? Nope wrong again, but we all know that is true…. Did I say that Ron Perlman has a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp? Oh no, none of the above.
Facebook have once again banned moi, an openly gay Conservative Commentator, for using widely accepted terminology. Last time I was banned for using the word “Faggot” this time it was for the hashtag #faghag. I did not use the terms in a derogatory way and I believe this is further attacking of Conservatives on Facebook.
I have to wonder if I had been a Muslim, would Zuck have banned me for three days or maybe a seat on the board, a key to the executive bathroom and a cigar. (Insert obvious Bill Clinton joke here.) In fairness it would be the latter as the harassment of Conservatives on Social Media is on the rise.
Some things on Facebook are more acceptable than others. You can talk about killing gays, cops, conservatives and animal, but not Muslims. Of course I am not suggesting it is ok to suggest anyone be killed. Police in the UK recently visited someone for merely having a negative opinion regarding Islam on Facebook which frankly I find astounding and such an intrusion.
Whilst there are no 1st Amendment protections on Social Media for Americans, I really believe there should be. Every time my vernacular is policed by Facebook, whether by staff or a word bot, my freedom of speech is being eroded. The sad thing is we all ignore it till it happens to us.
Facebook has turned into A Fascist State and sadly we have allowed it to happen via our patronage. They clearly think we will never all leave en mass, imagine how that would affect their advertising revenue alone…. Maybe it is something we need to consider.
To allow the over policing of Conservatives on Social Media is nothing short of discrimination and we need to stamp it out. For any Social Media community to thrive there needs to be not only equality but reality. Penalizing people for disagreeing is archaic and dangerous.
However you view this kind of action by Facebook, one has to see that this is actually more to do with money than anything else. Those fools like Soros are pouring cash into media and social media in order to control it. The more you pay, the bigger your say.
Wake up people; this is not just silly Xanny Gee having a tantrum. I am standing up for you here too. If we let this continue, the banning for silly things will never end. Maybe Facebook needs to give us a list of things we cannot say so we can be sure not to breach The Almighty Zuckerberg’s rules. Conservatives are under attack and we need to stand together. What will you do???
Love and peace, Xan.
Mika and Joe go toe to toe, to cover their tracks and hide the facts!!
As someone who has had more than their fair share of confrontation on Social Media, (No Xan, surely not?) I feel uniquely qualified to comment on recent back and forths between a certain Potus & a certain adulterous cable show host.
This week on the show we analyzed the confrontation that arose when Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski attempted to not only create copy for their show, but cover up a story The National Enquirer were going to share about them.
Mika and Joe were both married to other people and began an affair whilst hosting together and consequently divorced their partners and are now married to one another. That with dead interns and face lifts bleeding at Mar A Lago, we have one pretty wicked web that has been woven. With the level of feeling from some regarding The Donald, it was a genius plot to turn the tables and deflect from Joe and Mika’s bad behavior.
The true genius of this was to actually make “You” the people look stupid and so many of you fell into it hook, line and sinker. You see rather than face his action like a man, which we could respected, Scarborough tried to get help from Trump regarding The Enquirer story via Jared Kushner. Stating they had been unfair about Trump on their show, Kushner said they could always apologize.
Of course this translated in Trump Hate Language as Trumps Admin demanding an apology and yes the haters fell for it and believed it, because it’s Trump, it must be true. In typical Trump fashion, he took to Twitter to defend himself and quire rightly too. We all have first amendment rights to free speech, all except The President of course, or some would have you believe.
The Trump Hater Troop and his wife took to Twitter to express distress at his willingness to say these things, that were clearly UN-Presidential. Lets just hone in on that for a second. For the last 8 yrs we have had a Man in the Whitehouse who clearly cared more about everybody else than Americans, to the point of freeing terrorists, leaving Americans to die, funding terrorists and performing shadow initiatives to undermine Americans.
Still think Trump is UN-Presidential ?
Lets now get to the accusations that this is the most unconscionable thing to come from The Oval office. Lets not forget it housed a rapist who had sex with an intern, in The Oval Office and used a cigar to penetrate her and other such debauchery, yes: In the Oval Office. Tweeting to defend ones self is UN-Presidential?
The suggestion by some that when one becomes The President that it is undignified to respond to attacks on Social Media is frankly piffle. Agreed, one should be choosy as to what one replies too, how much abuse should one person take? Sorry, the answer Obama didn’t do it is disqualified and even he defended himself in ways people would consider underhand. Remember when he used the IRS to attack Conservatives & placed us on watch lists for disagreeing? I do!!
President Trump continues to refuse to be kicked publicly by his critics and describes his approach as MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. As someone who has been attacked, slandered, ridiculed and hated on Social Media for merely having an opinion, I really do have to concur. People don’t respond in this way if you are not making a difference and triggering some kind of response in them, even on a basic level.
The very idea that he should shut up and take it so not American and to label his every response as bullying is most hypocritical. Isn’t the commentary directed at him bullying or is that just one way? I get that people are not happy that he won and disagree with his positions and decisions. Believe me, there are things I don’t like about him and his policies, but I have to love America more than I dislike some things related to him.
He is trying hard to make America great again and all of this distraction, and that’s what it is, is not helpful. What do The Dems have to hide? What dose Joe Scarborough have to hide? It is clear that the level of descent is partly to with protecting legacies and preventing the real truth about The Obama Administrations illegal activities from getting out. Aren’t we better than this? Aren’t we?
Love and peace, Xan xo
As someone who has been on both sides of the political spectrum, I try not to generalize and encourage others not to do so either. When we make commentary about any one section of the community, there is for some a need to put them in a box. I get that if you are trying to discover trends about a demographic, but people are really not that simplistic, thankfully.
In the last few days I have become aware of syndrome I have decided to call CCP Syndrome. The symptoms are glaring but alas, do not fear, there is a free cure available. There is a need for both Democrats and Conservatives to think of “the other side” in a particular way in order to feel better about their choices/assumption etc.
The media knows it and actually relies on it to spread their toxic rhetoric and so do the Political Parties. Liberals are all one way and Conservatives another and one has to conform to a tick box list in order to somehow fit in or perhaps be thought of in a certain way. I call this cookie cutter politico syndrome and sadly we all conform to it, some even unconsciously.
The scary element in all of this is that it’s actually a method of control and is fixed into our thinking cycle. For some it's more about who they aspire to be than who they actually are. As someone that identifies as Republican there is actually an expectation attached to that title. Some of those things include that I will be pro life, pro death penalty, pro guns, anti immigration etc, which are all seen as core components of Conservatism.
Whether I identify one way or another should never mean totally conforming to fit a certain agenda. I never trust anyone who conforms 100% to party lines as it denotes compliance and not consideration. Our free thinking should extend to our political ideologies and we should feel free not to be automatons and think for ourselves.
The Media and the parties would not have you think this way or they would totally lose their control. The myth therein lies in how we are actually made to feel less of something for choosing to disagree with any particular component of the ideology. We should never be taking the watered down opinions of other and asserting them as our own, unless we really fully agree.
As I said there is a cure for CCP syndrome and it is very simple and something I have said before. Question and analyze everything, from whichever direction it comes from. All policy, ideology or opinion is formulated not including your perspective in the equation and your analysis is actually the end result. Your perspective.
Being told what to think and what to believe is highly suggestive and very easy to miss. Is it MK Ultra mind control?? Well in a way yes, but only if you let it be. The Media nowadays is sadly not about the facts, but merely opinion paraded as fact, paid for by whoever wants to control the tone of the information provided.
During the election this was highly visible from the particular direction a News Outlet took in their reporting of alleged facts. Sources say or we can now reveal have become the buzz words of media and it's a cop out for actually basing a story on the facts. Disturbing right?? That’s not even the most concerning part. They print such rot and hope the person can’t afford to sue and this has replaced having to use the word “Allegedly”
Sources revealed today that Xander Gibb weighs 100lbs and is going to become a Hollywood Heartthrob imminently. I even have a meme to prove it so it must be true right? It is so easy to be drawn in and to be told what to think and how to be, but you can break the chain. Take a step back, remember you are an individual and are not required to confirm to consider yourself a true anything unless it is a XanFan
Love & Peace
Cruelty begets it's offspring's war, time to show violence the door, If not now then tell me when, will we be able to Make America great again?
"Leave My President Alone"
Ever wake up and wonder were you are? Have to scratch you head at the Bizzaro-burgh that you are living in right now? Right is wrong and black is white and dare to question it or you are racist, even when Race is not involved in the topic? Media claims authentication based on “an unnamed source” and that we don’t really need evidence of collusion because that Donald Trump is clearly a bad guy, right?? Wrong!
Of course it’s not wrong you say, it must be true. I’ve seen him on the TV saying “You’re fired” and he did say those bad things about women that were recorded without his permission in a private conversation? He’s on Twitter sharing his opinions about others, thats not what Twitter is for is it? Isn’t it for sharing cute cat pics and recipes for cake and dip etc?
Everyone knows he’s on Putin’s pay roll and he hates Jews and Blacks and will end up putting the gays in internment camps and don’t even get me started on how he hates Muslims. It says it in the papers so it must be true and even fellow Republicans hate him, so he really must be bad and he had 2 scoops of ice cream which means he is greedy too. Rosie hates him and she’s the epitome of all that is good right??? WRONG!!!!
Wake up America and smell the damn covfefe because I am here to tell you that you are being hoodwinked and allowing the Deep State Revenge for Hillary losing, to brainwash you into total submission. To accept everything the media, any media tells you, without researching it further is the most dangerous thing you could ever do. It is not only dangerous but also UN-American and irresponsible to boot.
?Donald Trump spent a long time working on the TV Persona of this tough, no nonsense CEO who would cut you down and eviscerate you for merely looking the wrong way and was clearly very good at it. I totally get why some people may think that was the true Donald Trump, but lets be realistic, he played a role so well that Middle America found it difficult to separate the man from the myth.
I get it as I was a #NeverTrumper, right up until the point he won the nomination, and then something shifted for me. It was time to see beyond the veneer of the TV Donald Trump and look at the man behind the mask. Was he perfect? No. Was he an experienced Politician? Hell no, but lets face it we let a community organizer mess things up and sell us down the river for 8 years, and this guy had at least run a successful business.
He won the election fair and square and the least every freedom loving American owes him is a chance to do the job before writing him off totally in order to be seen as cool or just to save face. Many have done that and based upon the performance to date, on many levels he is doing a great job. Jobs are up, we are safer here than we have ever been and he seems to be doing what he promised to do on the campaign trail.
Unproven accusations of Russian collusion were investigated and owning a case of Stolichnaya does not a colluder make. Exercising his right and doing the best for America, he fired Jim Comey and rightly so. Even the recent hearings proved that Comey had been manipulated by AG Lynch to let Hillary of the hook and that he had let his political leanings guide him more than the law of the land.
They couldn’t prove Mr. Trump colluded with the Russians, and even though there was a wealth of evidence that Hillary had, Uranium sales, $500000.00 in speaking fees for rapey Bill and donations the Clinton foundation etc. One only sees what ones eyes want to see. Bob Mueller then comes along with more invented charges of Obstruction of Justice, based upon Comey’s accusations.
So let’s get this straight, Mueller advises Trump to fire Comey, his mentor and then wants to investigate him for firing Comey as obstruction of justice. Is this still America and if it is, why are some of the American Public too stupid to see that this is the biggest Witch Hunt in this great nation ever? Wake up America before it’s too late.
This is before we even get to Steve Scalise & others being shot as a direct result of trickle down hate towards Mr. Trump and Conservatives in general. Kathy Griffin and her severed Trump Head effigy, Shakespeare in the park depicting Trumps Assassination, Snoop Dogg depicting Trumps Assassination. Madonna saying she wants to blow up The Whitehouse. No you’re right there is no connection whatsoever. Nothing to see here.
If you are stupid enough to be spoon fed this constant train of lies and deception from the left, you are part off the problem and guilty by your inaction. Even Nancy Pelosi after initially saying some positive things about us all coming together blamed Trump for Scalise being shot as did Mark Sanford. We have to stop the rot before its too late and stop constant barrage of lies and the never ending accusations and attacks directed at our President.
I don’t care if you like Trump or not. Let’s face it we all had to tolerate Obama for the sake of America and wanting Mr. Trump to fail is wanting America to fail. His failure is America’s failure too. We have to stop this now and make America great again while we still can. It’s up to you. Do you want to me a mindless automaton, questioning nothing or will you be like me, A Patriot and fight for this great country, the greatest there ever was?
What will you do???

Xander Gibb has written for many publications and writes with an unapologetic response to the world around.
In a Country were everyone is given a chance and the benefit of the doubt, why is this not afforded to a Democratically Elected President?
"Leave My President Alone"
Much has changed in our land in such a very short time and I appreciate that many are concerned with how quickly these changes are occurring. For the last 8 years Barack Obama led the country into a direction many of us not only disagreed with, but which also made us fear for our safety.
So much has come to light recently regarding the illegality of some of the actions of the previous administration, including Wire Tapping, Financial Irregularities, Collusion with Russia, Selling Uranium to Russia, Loss of public funds, Putting American Citizens at risk, the list is endless.
Be in no doubt that the current President, Donald J Trump is the new
sheriff in town and contrary to popular belief will be around and in charge for the next 4 - 8 yrs. Those who have chosen to march, protest, disrupt, throw rockets at Police, destroy property, assault members of the public, stop traffic and generally try to cause disruption are in for a rude
Politicians from both sides of the aisle fill their Twitter feeds with attempts to trash the President, twist his words and generally criticize his every move. Senior Republicans like John Flip Flopper McCain and Lindsay Graham spend their days dissing The Donald. CNN ignore facts and share their opinion as if it were fact and fools like Chris Cuomo spew Liberal Logic and tell us if our children in school object to seeing penis they are intolerant.
The world has gone mad and whilst they would have you think that this is
just all coincidental and all because Mr Trump engaged in Locker Room Banter years ago and was recorded wihtout his permission. I am here to tell you this is anything but. Even with all of the illegal things Clinton,
Obama and Soros did to try and ensure a Clinton victory, America spoke, Donald Trump won and The Globalist's are furious.
We are seeing Hollywood getting in on the case and trashing the President and not fully considering the commercial implications of polarizing ones audience. Rosie O'Donnell who has had a very public feud with The President recently ranted outside the Whitehouse. Nyet Sir, Nyet she ranted like a rabid dog, convinced along with the rest of the Hollywood has beens, she can bring the president down.
Barbra Streisand had the audacity to tweet that The President was making her gain weight from eating extra pancakes. I mean really Babs? People. who eat to many pancakes, are the piggiest people, in the world..........
Then folks, this week Valerie Jarrett (yes that Valerie Jarrett, with alleged ties to The Muslim Brotherhood) moved into Barry Obama's new Washington pad. It is clear to those who are not foolish enough to be drawn into The Globalist Anti Trump BS that Barry is staging a big fat treasonous coup and everyone who has been involved in trashing Trump
is also part of that coup.
Wake up America Obama! Clinton, Soros, McCain, Graham, and all of those who are a part of this want you to not to see that this coup has been planned and sadly some of the American Public are far too stupid to see ever see through it.
Now is the time to stand and be counted and get behind our President. Challenge those who attack and defame him as part of this heinous Globalist Obama Admin Coup. Encourage the ousting of all Obama
appointees to The Whitehouse, Encourage the GOP to cancel the membership of The RINO"S who are part of this treasonous coup and give our President the support he deserves.
This is the final chance to make America great again and thank God we got a reprieve as if Hillary had won, she would have sold us to the Saudis in the blink of an eye. This is the land of the free, and the home of the brave and if we want to keep it that way, now is the time to step up and speak out and get the Globalists gone.
Love and Peace
Xander Gibb has written for many publications and writes with an unapologetic response to the world around.
A Challenge to All Americans who still challenge The Presidency of Donald Trump, to set aside their preconceived ideas and prejudices!
I write to you at a time when we all should be celebrating and looking forward to better times. We have just inaugurated a brand new President, for four years, and even though some are unwilling or unable to accept it, the fact he is President remains unchanged.
The Presidential Race was hard and for most of us went on far too long. The Media decided to support Hillary Clinton, even to the extent of lying about Donald Trump. Accusation after accusation, without evidence or base. His every commentary twisted and taken out of context and whilst he was far from perfect, he did not deserve that level of response.
Whilst Hillary was off conspiring with George Soros and accepting donations from any who felt they could gain influence over and above that which she gave whilst in the State office, Mr Trump campaigned tirelessly. All of this was under the eyes of then President Barack Obama who failed to ensure the cleanliness of his staff, even to the point of allowing them to commit treasonous acts.
In the debates Hillary said that anyone unwilling to accept the outcome of the election was a threat to democracy, unless it was her of course. When it was revealed that Mr Trump had won, she beat her staffers & got drunk, again. Her whole strategy was that people wanted more of the same and it became her downfall. America didn't want a white Obama lady in a pantsuit, they wanted change.
After all was said and done Donald trump won the election and chaos for The democrats ensued. Every excuse for him winning was brought to table including the Russians, cheating, global warming, flexible rostering & witchcraft. Even though the Electoral College votes may have sealed the deal, it was an accepted part of the process, until it went badly for Hillary.
Even when Jill Stein from The Green Party raised funds for recounts and didn't spend all of the money on recounts it highlighted more votes for The Donald. It also highlighted more dishonesty from Hillary's team including voter fraud, double voting, dead people voting, illegals voting etc. Still the democrats were unwilling to accept the results.
Broadway then got in on the act (no pun intended) when the cast of Hamilton decided to give unsolicited statements from the stage to Mike Pence and his family when they attended the theater. I was left wondering when people paid to entertain us were given license to share their political theories when we had paid them to well... perform.
Hollywood then stepped in, as if they have some amazing power over us. Strikes were threatened, but were really empty in all honesty. None of the celebs who threatened to leave if Mr Trump won actually did, they just chose to whine about it, to the public's chagrin. Chelsea Handler who had threatened to move to Spain blamed The Kardashian Sister for Mr Trumps meteoric win as the USA was now a Reality Show.
Even Meryl Streep or Meryl Sheep as I call her now decided to use her acceptance speech to trash Mr Trump. Many switched off and whilst some applauded you could see a lot of the audience were uncomfortable. She took the opportunity to talk about Mr Trumps alleged attack on a disabled person, yet failed to mention the disabled person attacked by 5 black youths just days before. Streep throat indeed cough cough!
When President Obama was elected in 2008 I was still a Democrat. I remember the ideology of wanting The President to fail meant that you wanted the USA to fail. I am sitting here wondering what has changed? There was a lot of opposition to Barry & his Bodgers. The world was going to end, we would all be forced to become Muslims, and Republicans would be persecuted. None of it happened apart from the fact that Republicans were persecuted by his admin. Thank you IRS!
Obama in his last days freed drug dealers, thugs & trans traitors just for being trans. He ignored those with legitimate need for sentence commutation, like Kristian Saucier. Kris was jailed for a yr, lost his job, his pension and his family, a wife and a young child were left destitute. He took 6 selfies on a 40 yr old submarine and as Mr Trump said, anyone who wanted pics had them years ago.
Saucier's family lost their life savings paying for his defense in what was clearly a political imprisonment. Hillary walked free and ran for president for doing a thousand times more, but no, not even a pardon for this young man. While he rots in federal prison and his family suffer daily. If this is how we treat Patriots who serve our country I wonder why the hell they bother #FreeKrisSaucier.
I particularly enjoyed President Trumps speech especially the part were he reiterated that his administration was for the people, yet still some of the people object. At a time when America needs to come together united to begin afresh and correct the wrongs of the previous administration, the divide widens further.
My heart is sad that so many women marched against Mr Trump for comments he made in private 11 years ago. How about marching for the women in the Arab world who are stoned and have their clitoris removed or the gays who are thrown of roofs every day. These same people who commit such atrocities funded Hillary and you choose to march against Mr Trump? Wake the hell up America.
This talk of The Resistance movement is indeed futile and farcical. So what you marched, you protested, you tweeted your anger about the lack of free tampons and guess what? Donald Trump is still President and will be for the next four years and possibly eight.
Those who oppose Donald trump as far as I can see have two realistic choices. Suck it up and work together to make America great again and if you are still unhappy in four years, then vote someone else in. You may be very surprised in that President Trump might do such a good job you will want him for another four years.
Your other choice is to opine and complain for four years to anyone who will listen, but as I said this is futile. What change can you effect by working against the new President? He will still be the President after your march, tirade,complaint etc is over.
We need to come together and stop with the negativity as that will only benefit those who's m.o is to divide us further. We need to stop listening to the dishonest media who are paid to increase the divide and provide opinion rather than fact to sell their gutter rags. You are better than to be used as a tool of divide and allowing yourself to be brainwashed further is most concerning.
Whilst I am one of President Trumps fiercest champions I will also be one of his fiercest critics. He has set a challenge for himself and us to make America great again and I for one will be continuing to see he is charged with that task. As a commentator my job is to comment on all aspects of his Presidency, not just the good bits.
It is no secret that I did not like Mr Trump when he first ran for President. I based my perception on his TV persona which was nothing more that a character. Once he won the nomination to be the candidate I decided to put my preconceived ideas aside for the good of my country. I actually grew to like and respect this man once I separated him from his TV persona. I challenge you to do the same.
Love and Peace, Xan
An open letter to Marina Sirtis & all celebrities, minor celebrities & has beens practicing to be a never was that are trash talking Trump!
Dear Marina Sirtis
Firstly, thanks so much for your appearance on Star Trek The Next Generation as Deanna Troi. Your performance was impeccable and the wardrobe department’s bold use of spandex was most definitely a genius step. I would like to add to your list of acting prowess but the only other thing I can think of is your appearance in Stargate SG1, The TV Series. Yes I did check IMDB but as we both know as actors, minor roles are just filler!
Whilst I was a fan and don’t want to be rude to you I am really disappointed at not only your foolishness as an actor, and your lack of Business Acumen, but your attempts to make me look unprofessional for merely disagreeing with you. May I remind you that it was your character that was empathic, not you and although you may think having one starring role qualifies you to be a Political Commentator, I am here to inform you that it doesn't!
Your Timeline on Twitter stinks of Liberal Logic and Anti Trump sentiment and you slanderous accusations would only be tolerated by those with no intellect. Calling Donald Trump a racist in order to further the political aspirations of Hillary Clinton or to boost your own flagging career is suicidal and your fan base dwindles daily.
This is before we even consider how many Casting Agents and TV Show Executives actually know and support Donald Trump and will be aware of your commentary. I for one am no longer a fan and will not support you anymore, but will observe your career suicide from afar. Even hard core fans will not tolerate your lies and misrepresentations of Mr Trump based upon the watered down perceptions you have gleaned from others.
When I called you out for an example regarding your assumptions that Donald Trump is racist, you cited commentary that had been generalised regarding his suggestion some Mexicans in The USA Illegally, had raped and murdered people. His reference was directly relating to those who had and was not a generalization about all Mexicans.
Your choice to misappropriate Mr Trump's commentary is directly and intentionally designed to draw focus from Mrs Clinton's own racism. Her best friend was head of The KKK. Robert Bird, The Grand Dragon of The KKK was the Clinton's best friend. Talk about hypocrisy!
You then had the audacity to criticize me by saying I didn't understand the concept of fact checking. Well my dear Marina, who hasn't had a major role since Star Trek, let me correct you for one moment. I have among other things been a fair and objective journalist for over 20 years. I have hosted, written and produced a Radio Show & a TV Show for four years and have checked my facts meticulously. What gives you the right to question my fact checking? Your guest appearance in Casualty maybe?
It is one thing to disagree but to assert superiority based on the fact that you're a 61 year old British Actress who had one successful role that required cleavage and spandex is preposterous. I would even go so far as to say your knowledge of American Politics is minimal at best and clearly because you voted Labour and loved Tony Blair that makes you a Democrat. As for fact checking, I suggest you check out Hillary's racist commentary, maybe she still want's to refer to Black People as predatory and wants to bring them to heel.
Don't think for one minute that once the election is over fans will forget how you and others have behaved. You are slowly but surely isolating your fan base and encouraging those who could give you work not to do so. Let's face it Marina, your career has been far from successful since Star Trek, can you really afford to isolate fans and potential employers further with your level of dishonest commentary? I think not!
Sirtis is not the only celeb/minor celeb enticed by Clinton's brand of dishonesty, oh no sirree! Both Cher and Barbra Streisand have also been duped. At a recent fundraiser Streisand reworded "Send in the clowns" and was offensive about Trump. It is interesting how these people forget that probably half their fan base if not more could be supporting Trump. Even the gays have support for Trump and more than any other Republican Candidate in history, Donald supports the gays.
Think on celebs/minor celebs and wannabes. The fans you lose during this election cycle are not coming back and I am sure some of you really can't afford to hemorrhage more fans. What of my fan base you say? Well interestingly enough my fan base found me and support me because of my leanings. As a Talk Show Host, Writer & Political Commentator my followers are very specific, but I am wondering, can you say the same Marina, Cher, Babs and others? I think not!
Love & Peace, Xan xo
It’s no secret that I have evolved politically over the last few years, but sadly some have stayed chained in the bondage of Liberalism and the lies attached to it. Whilst I never considered myself a Liberal when I was a Democrat, I was fraught with contradiction and control. I'd frankly had enough of Obama’s failed rhetoric and inability to make any lasting difference.
Changing allegiances will never make you popular or even enable you be trusted easily. Lets face it I was viewed as too liberal to be conservative by my conservative friends and clearly a total conservative by my liberal friends. Whilst I consider myself to be a conservative in all honesty I am still just me trying to make a difference and make America a better place.
I always believed that this would only be achieved by left and right working together and forging a point to grow from based upon the things we do agree on. Division is only achievable by allowing our differences in opinion to tear through any chances of growth and development. I do fundamentally believe some really do want there to be divide and are too unreachable, but most are not.
In the run up to the Presidential elections things became very difficult for me politically once more with the division within The GOP and in the country as a whole. Sadly that grew and the uncertainty that ensued was palpable. Regardless of everything else I do believe that God is in control and even with the fact that humanity is flawed we will get by.
The race ensued and it got down to four, two on each side and in all any honesty I didn’t feel particularly warm and supportive towards any of them. I don’t think I could ever support a Democrat in office again, I mean look at the mess Obama has made of the USA in less than 8 years. His policies were quick fixes and his promises constantly failed and clearly "Teflon Trouser Suit Girl" Hillary would basically grab his policies and eek them out for another four years and then blame the previous incumbent.
When it got down to a two horse race and it was clear that Donald Trump would be the GOP nominee I was forced to make a choice. I could, like so many of my conservative friends chuck a hissy fit because Cruz had not won the nomination and support a 3rd party runner. On reflection that was really never an option because a vote for anybody but Trump was a vote for Hillary, so totally defeated the object.
I also heard some were saying they would vote for Hillary as a protest as Trump wasn’t even a Conservative. I don’t ever recall him professing he was and as for questioning whether he was still a Democrat, he was running on the GOP docket. What more do you need, for him to get a tattoo with GOP on his arm? In a way it made things very simple and I quickly came to a conclusion.
It was clear that it was imperative to love America more than I disliked elements of the candidate. Is Trump perfect? Heck no but neither was any other candidate and let’s face it, Jesus wasn’t running this year. When I looked at Hillary and Donald side by side, based upon track record, Donald did look so bad. There have been many things Trump has said that I have found abhorrent, but in fairness, to quote an 11 yr old “I’d rather deal with a few bad words than get bombed or my head cut off”
Hillary would do or say anything to get elected and she carries a level of culpability regarding Benghazi. Having the blood of my fellow countrymen on your hands is a definite turnoff for me and that’s before we get to the EMail stuff. Then there are four hundred million more reasons not to want Teflon Tessie Clinton as our POTUS. Yes I am referring to the fact that her department arranged for $400 Million taxpayer dollars to be given to our sworn enemies. You know the ones who want to kill us and our allies.
Wake up America, Hillary and Bill have been in bed with terrorists for years and put personal profit above the safety of people like you and me. She has already indicated she wants to change freedom of speech laws and another Clinton in the Whitehouse is one too many for me.
When I started to go public about choosing to support Donald Trump, I was subject to many forms of abuse. Being a Talk Show Host I am thankfully pretty thick skinned. It started slow with people retweeting negative things I had said about Trump from 3 and 4 years ago. Big deal, I chose to comment on what I perceived to be negative comments from Trump.
Then people unfollowed me for my Political Position. People I had known for 30 yrs blocked me for supporting him. I was told I had no self respect if I supported Trump which in all honesty was so far from the truth. I was insulting the LGBT Community by supporting him. Get real! The Gays have far more to worry about with Hillary. She took donations from countries that KILL gays and throw them off roofs for merely being gay. Her support for this community only occurred to get the gay vote.
I had quite a public slanging match with the Editor of The Huffington Post, Noah Michelson who stated he didn’t know of anyone gay supporting Trump. TA DA, and I’m not even a Republican. He went into such a tirade of vitriol criticizing me, my journalism and my right to an opinion. It was like being back in highschool, you know when that one friend says you can’t be friends with someone they dislike. His commentary was so abhorrent even friends of mine from the board of Verizon who own the Liberal Rag where disgusted with him.
When I pointed this out he asked me if that was a threat and quickly backed down. I asked my friends to take no action but they are monitoring the situation. What more can we expect from a professional homosexual who writes such tat as the article below, that encourages gays to stop sleeping with Trump supporters in order to defeat him. Oh yes Noah, that will stop him, keep up that award winning Journalism. Come back Arianna Huffington, all is forgiven
He even went so far as to state that The Huffington Post’s Editorial position was that “Trump is dangerous and must be stopped at all costs” I am sure my friends on The Verizon Board would have concerns with that statement as they are Republicans! Good luck with your little tirade Noah because clearly yours or anyone’s friendship that does not allow for personal perspective, is a friendship not worth having. Bye Felicia!!
In conclusion I want to clarify that point. Anyone who claims to be your friend and does not allow for your own personal political convictions was never your friend in the first place. I am fully ensconced on The Trump Train Thanks so much to my friends for saving me a seat. If my stumping for Trump means you cannot be my friend any longer, adios amigo and good luck helping Teflon Tessie wipe the blood from her hands!

In 2008 Barack Hussein Obama was voted into office as the first “African American” President in the history of The United States. People were elated, there were celebrations all across the country, ticker tape parades, tears of joy and glasses were charged a plenty.
