How Hyatt's Ban on Conservative 'Hate Groups' Exposes the Left's Corrupt Bias

Hyatt Hotels Corporation issued a statement last week declaring it would no longer host conservative "hate groups." This decision came after Muslim Advocates, MoveOn.org, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) launched a campaign—funded by George Soros—to attack the hotel chain for hosting ACT for America's conference at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel.

As I wrote in a previous Strang Report, ACT for America is the United States' biggest grass-roots anti-terrorism organization. Brigitte Gabriel founded the organization to equip everyday citizens to stand up for their rights and protect their Judeo-Christian values. She writes more about her vision in her new book, Rise, which Charisma House published in September.

Gabriel has spoken out against liberal values infiltrating the U.S. And now Hyatt is proving her case by banning groups like ACT for America from its hotels, exposing the left's relentless attack on conservative values.

Although America has suffered this deep divide between the left and the right for decades, no event has made its existence as abundantly clear as Donald Trump's election in 2016.

As I explain in my new book, Trump Aftershock, Donald Trump's election was unexpected. Even for those who worked hardest for his election, the realization that the New York billionaire had actually won struck like an earthquake, shaking everything and everybody.

If you read God and Donald Trump, you know I believed he might win, which is why I flew to New York for his election-night party. I admit I was nervous. But being there on that historic night, I saw that even his most ardent fans could barely believe it as the returns came in. And that was just the beginning.

The aftershocks have continued ever since the inauguration, affecting politics, business, foreign affairs and the culture in many new and surprising ways. The panic that ensued on the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, was due mainly to the fact that no one in either party had given much thought to what the world would look like if Hillary Clinton lost the election. The polls and the talking heads had been saying for months that she had it in the bag. She had finally burst through the glass ceiling and was on her way to becoming the first female president of the United States. Then suddenly, everything changed.

All those big plans would never come to fruition, and the Democrats found themselves staring into the face of a harsh new reality: They were out of power, and the candidate the left feared more than any other would be taking care of business at the White House. The Obama era was finished, and the world would soon be seeing him and his presidency in a new light. Today, we're still dealing with that reality, uncovering secrets and shenanigans long hidden in darkness and doing our best to deal with the aftershocks coming from those stunning revelations.

In Trump's first two years in office, the economy has broken out of its decades-long slump and set so many records The New York Times had to admit it "ran out of words" to describe the incredible success of the economy under Trump's leadership. Employment numbers have gone through the roof, topping 220,000 new jobs in the month of May 2018, with unemployment falling to 3.8 percent overall, the lowest in 18 years. At the same time, black unemployment is down to 5.9 percent, an all-time record, and companies announced they were giving thousand-dollar bonuses to more than a million workers. Despite the counterattacks from the Democratic leadership, the American people were ecstatic, and the mainstream media were appalled.

The media were clearly on the other side from Day One, but Trump was swept into office by a red wave of Middle Americans who were sick and tired of Washington's way of doing business. They were tired of the liberal talking heads bashing their values and beliefs, and they weren't going to take it anymore. Political observers reported that the people were so frustrated with the government's unwelcome intrusion into their lives that they were on the verge of full-scale revolt. They could feel the country spiraling downward from its previous greatness.

The nation was reaching a point where something had to be done, and that something turned out to be Donald Trump. As Gov. Mike Huckabee told me in an interview for this book, "Quite frankly, the goal of the voters was not to send someone to Washington who would fix anything. They couldn't care less about what our solutions were. They wanted someone to go and burn the place down, and Trump was the guy who seemingly carried a can of gasoline and a lighter every time he went to a rally. He was ready to burn it down, and that excited people."

As it turned out, voters from both sides concluded that there was no hope of finding common ground. Some of them, particularly in blue-collar country, decided to switch rather than fight and moved to the right. But we also witnessed unprecedented confrontations and a level of hostility not seen in this country since the Civil War. Battles over immigration, gun control, taxes, health care, abortion, entitlements, the environment and everything else were pushing the parties to extremes. Emotions were boiling over in communities all over the country as gangs of leftist thugs and anarchists tried to muscle in on the conversation. But the fact is, President Trump won the 2016 election the old-fashioned way, earning the votes of more than 60 million Americans and winning the electoral votes of 30 states.

It seems the biggest surprise in this developing story was that during the campaign, the administration of the outgoing president, aided by the Department of Justice, the FBI, the CIA and a network of spies and undercover operatives, conducted a search-and-destroy mission against the Trump campaign. Over several months, these men and women laid an elaborate trap so that in the unlikely event Trump somehow snatched the victory from the waiting arms of Hillary Clinton, he wouldn't last long enough to do much damage. The fact that this deep-state coup d'etat has largely failed, and the president has successfully defended his administration, is almost as big a miracle as the election itself.

In Trump Aftershock, I go into more detail—all of which is carefully documented—about what Trump has accomplished since his election. While the leftist media would like to ignore the good Trump has done and focus solely on his flaws, I try to tell the story of Trump's presidential accomplishments from a Christian journalistic perspective.
