The Obama White House sharply divided the United States along a number of lines. Remember when he declared that if America once WAS Christian, it certainly no longer is?
So President Trump was left, among his other duties, with the huge task of trying to restore some commonality for Americans.
His critics say he’s failing hugely on that count. His supporters say people should just look at what he has done and is trying to do in the face of total opposition from Democrats, significant opposition from his own party and a world that’s more dangerous than ever.
So just as he’s approaching the conclusion of his first year in office, there are two stark choices facing Americans: Scream uncontrollably about his presidency, or thank him for what’s been done.
Fox News reported it was on Nov. 8, the one-year anniversary of Trump’s election, that people gathered in cities across America to “scream at the sky.”
“Their impotent rage, which has been on display for the past year, manifested itself in impotent expression. But President Trump remains in office,” the report said.
In fact, there were small groups in “liberal cities” who joined on that date to “enjoy a collective cathartic yell into the heavens,” according to the invitation posted online.
“The larger problem with the screamers and the ragers is that they have let an election that didn’t go their way take over their lives. Politics shouldn’t bring you joy or despair. It isn’t your friend or family, and unless it’s part of your job it should not be part of your daily life,” the report said.
An estimated 4,000 people across the nation checked in as “interested” in the event dubbed “Scream Helplessly at the Sky on the Anniversary of the Election.”
But there’s the other option.
It’s the creation of WND.com founder Joseph Farah, whose ThankTrump.us program allows Americans to send the president an e-card thanking him for his accomplishments.
WND kicked off the campaign by compiling a comprehensive “BIG LIST” of Trump’s accomplishments, many of which have been either lambasted or ignored by the establishment media. The “BIG LIST” will be updated daily through Jan. 20, the first anniversary of Trump’s inauguration. Those who participate in the campaign will also be kept informed of the Trump administration’s new achievements.
The campaign includes several different messages, such as “Praying for your continued success! May the Lord bless you and keep you.”
About half of the people taking part in the campaign, which already has surged past 10,000 messages sent, have chosen that faith-based saying.
“I noticed that the most popular choice early on was the one and only card that had a strong spiritual hook,” said Joseph Farah, the inspiration behind the ThankTrump.us campaign.
So he said, when the program expanded days ago, three more messages were added, including two with a spiritual content.
The newest e-card messages include:
“Thank God for the Trump Miracle.”
“You are proof that God answers the prayers of His children.”
“Trump 2020: His vision is sure, and we need 7 more years.”
Anyone with a computer, cell phone or other Internet-connected device can participate in this campaign for FREE by visiting ThankTrump.us, choosing one of nine card designs, writing a personalized message if desired, and then clicking Submit to send the card directly to the White House.
WND.com, originally known as WorldNetDaily, was established in 1997 as the first independent online news agency. And WND has run other innovative political campaigns in the past, including the famous “Pink Slip” project, which sent 9 million messages to Congress on pink paper threatening members with rejection at the polls in November 2010 if they did not act on their campaign promises. The campaign was so successful, it exhausted supplies of pink paper in North America. Republicans gained 63 House seats to take control of the House of Representatives in that election.
