President Trump-“Tweet” Power

Image result for trump tweets

Many Trump supporters are a little timid when defending President Trump’s myriad of Tweets and shrink back from defending him to those less committed to Trump. 

When seeking to defend the President, keep in mind that the President said he is a fighter and he will always fight for himself, his policies, his people, and YOU.  Keep in mind that the President treats men and women who attack him the same.  He sees both as adversaries subject to equal levels of retaliation even if it gets personal.  

I hope that the following will help the “Timid Trumpsters” to not be intimidated by the left, RINOs and elitist and wholeheartedly stand up for our President!  Many claim that his “personal” Tweets are especially distasteful and disconcerting.  Others claim his “boisterous” Tweets are equally distasteful.  

Key Things to Remember:

  1. Libs, Never-Trumpers, and Elites will NEVER accept Trump and his actions no matter what he does or does not do!  They fear that he is returning the US back to its founding principles and reversing left-wing, secular humanist, globalist, and open-border wins that have left this country devoid of morality, jobs, and a future.  Don’t worry about his Tweets, he is communicating to you, not to his enemies.
  2. Elite Media and Hollywood types hate that one of their own, Actor Trump as the head of the Apprentice, is in power and his beliefs and policies are the antithesis of what they believe in!  The President takes on the “Fake Media” and talking heads directly, especially those who used to “suck up” to citizen Trump due to his financial and NY social status.  To be in Trump’s inner circle, was an invitation to be at Mar-A-Lago and Trump’s gala events.  He returns fire towards these hypocrites in the same manner they attack him.  If they play hardball, he plays hardball with even more gusto!     Trump’s attacks on Joe and Mika of “Morning Joe” were harsh, direct, and a call out of their hypocrisy for once being his “friend” and now being personally insulting and questioning his mental capacity.  Trump tweeted back:  “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”  Trump was merely pointing out that Joe and Mika (her dad was the Security Advisor to President Carter!)  were not well-informed and constantly wanted to socialize with the President-elect as they had in the past!  That Mika would even attend a New Year’s event while recovering from surgery just to be with the “in-crowd”.  The left, the media, and the elites go nuts!
  3. President Trump Creates International Policy changes through his Tweets!  When the President took on NATO and the member’s failure to live up with their financial commitments, the President Tweeted, “We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change.”  Did Merkel get upset?  Yes.  Are the NATO nations upping their commitments to defense?  Yes!  If he had said, “It would be nice if NATO members would increase their financial commitments to defense.”  Do you think anything would have changed in NATO?  Nope.  Ask Obama, Bush and Clinton.  All prior Presidents said that NATO member needed to spend more on defense and were ignored.  The President also pressured the European Open Borders nations by Tweeting a condemnation of the Fake News Media’s coverage of Sweden’s disaster that has resulted from their open borders policy.  The President Tweeted; “Give the public a break – The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large-scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!”  The President continues to Tweet about the atrocities that are occurring as a result of the EU Open Borders fiasco.  The President doubled down when he condemned the London Mayor’s comments following another attack on that city;  “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!””   The President’s direct language forces the leaders of nations to at least look at themselves and certainly arms their citizens with another view of the impacts of their leader’s failed policies!  The left, the media, and the elites go nuts!
  4. #FakeNews:  Elite Media will Never Treat President Trump with Respect and Honesty.  At the core of the President’s use of social media is this Tweet he put out on June 6th, 2017; “The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media. They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out.”  The mainstream media’s reporting on the President and his administration is running 95%+ negative since his election.  There is no way the President can drive his agenda or communicate his priorities other than through social media.  CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, and the print media actually make up stories against the President while ignoring the booming economy or the positive foreign policy advancements that have been made under this President.  Many of you want him to “temper” his Tweets with nicer language.  If he did, the MSM would not report on those Tweets.  They never retweet or report on the Tweets he makes regarding the economy or his policy advancements.  The MSM skews polls  against the President and his policies every single week.  Even Fox pools presuppose a larger base of liberal voters and over sample independents as well.  The left, the media, and the elites go nuts!
  5.   The President’s Tweets may be harsh, but are predictive of future events.  Never doubt the President when he predicts future events or outcomes.  Sometimes it becomes true in a few days, sometimes it takes longer.  One of the more esoteric predictions the President Tweeted; “How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!   Later, following leaks and hearing info the President Tweeted;  “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”   When the President comes out with the initial prophesy, the left, the MSM and the elites go nuts.  Then Trump is proven correct!

Don’t Argue with a Liberal, MSM, or an Elite!

When you read a Trump Tweet and your first reaction is to recoil, reread the Tweet and look at the context.  Then ask yourself; “What is the President trying to accomplish”; “What is the future impact of his Tweet”;  “Who is he targeting and why”;  “Is his Tweet in response to an attack on him, his family, or his administration?”.   Also remember that the President is privy to information and intelligence that we don’t.  The President’s Tweets will require that you keep up with what he is being subjected to, what he is trying to promote, and current events.

When accosted by a Liberal, a member of the MSM, or an Elite (can be a republican or democrat), don’t argue the Tweet.  Defend the point or policy of the Tweet.  But, you will have to be informed!  

Without social media, the President would never have won the election.  His access to millions of followers get his side out and keeps his base informed and loyal.  the President has learned how to “weaponized” social media and stay ahead of the left, the media and the elites.  

Also remember, it is a waste of time to argue with a Liberal or an elite.  You will never change their minds.  Remember some famous quotes regarding arguing with those of flawed or low levels of intellect:

Mark Twain:  “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”   

Another quote that you should keep in mind is:  “Sometimes when you’re arguing with a fool, he’s doing the same thing.”

Eliminating Confederate History Covers the Sins of the Democrat Progressive Left

Under Democrat Leadership, the KKK grew to Over 4,000,000 Members!

Today, the KKK numbers Only 5-8,000 Members!

Democrats must bury their sordid past on Black slavery and human rights abuses in order to hide their decades of lying to African-Americans.

Democrats fought to keep slavery since before our Constitution was ratified and continued to keep slaves in “civil” bondage long after the Civil War.  The Democrats are the very people enshrined as Confederate statuary and monuments that the Democrats and the Progressive Left are now clamoring to remove from our public squares and history. 

  • IF your past heroes are memorialized in town squares, cemeteries and parks, why would you now want to tear them down? 
  • Why would African-Americans support the Democrats and the Progressive Left in hiding the evil past of the same Democrats and the Progressive Left?

 Since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, that was passed due to the majority support of Republican Senators and Representatives, the Democrats/Progress Left (DPL) have sought to rewrite their history of support for enslaving a race of human beings.  DPL now quote the “Jim Crow Laws” as a creation of conservatives (and Trump) that THE DPL ENACTED!  Local DPL State Legislatures created laws that codified RACIAL SEGREGATION following the Civil War and these laws lasted almost 100 years until outlawed in 1965.  

It is amazing to watch the Black Caucus members such as John Lewis, who was literally beaten by Democrats during his march in Selma, Alabama, in 1965, enthusiastically support the DPL.   He turns a blind eye to the current plight of the majority of African-Americans and joins in the outcry against Republicans as being racist and perhaps even the core of the White Supremacists.  It is difficult to fathom except for the power and money the support of the DPL brings to African-American “leaders”.  

DPL and The Role of Education

Image result for Fascism in America

The DPL follows the Marxist playbook for taking over a culture and this is especially true for the control over education.  Marx understood that if you were going to remake a nation, you had to rewrite history and make sure young minds were indoctrinated with the revisionist history.  The DPL took control of the National Education Association and all of the “teachers unions” to drive their revisionist agenda.  The US education system is racist in the sense that it ensures African-Americans are relegated to sub standard schools so to limit the potential of Black Youth.  Ignorance is pliable and the DPL uses this effectively to control the thought of many in the Black and other majority communities.  They have virtually created a monopoly of African-American votes for DPL candidates.

The DPL has been so effective in reprogramming American Youth of all races, many are totally ignorant of even the combatants in the Civil War, why it was fought, and the fact that it was a Republican President who fought the war in support of abolishing slavery in the United States.  Almost none of our youth realize that 600,000+ soldiers died in the Civil War, our most costly war we have ever fought. Image result for Civil War Battles The anti-slavery forces, mostly made up of white soldiers,  paid a high price to abolish slavery in the US and started a world-wide abolitionist movement.  Most of our youth believe that the KKK was made up of Republicans!  Most believe that the DPL fought for and passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  (Partially because John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, clamored for civil rights legislation in 1963).

DPL Fascist Tactics to Remove Free Speech

The DPL also took another page out of the fascist playbook regarding Free Speech.  Once you have dumbed down our youth, the DPL has to make sure that our youth cannot be “polluted” by Free Speech that accurately portrays history.  Image result for free speech  Occupy Wall Street and now Antifa (Anti-Fascist, cute play on words) lead the way to stifle free speech.  Now the DPL has added Black Lives Matters so they can insert a racial component in their fight to kill free speech.  Anyone who opposes BLM is automatically a racist!

What are the elements of Free Speech that has to be Eliminated?  If you are going to “white-wash” history, there are many elements that have to be scrubbed in order to reset history and solidify the dumbing down of Americans.

  • Tool-Bigotry:  The DPL has perfected the use of calling out detractors as bigots.  They set up identity politics for various groups then tell us that if you don’t unequivocally support racial quotas, gay marriage, non gender specific rest rooms, unlimited immigration, open refugee programs, and not saying “Merry Christmas” you are a bigot!  All of the “isms” and “phobias” are used, sexism, racism,  homophobe, Islamophobe, misogynist, and so on.  YOU ARE SHAMED INTO COMPLIANCE!  Your rights are subservient to whatever the DPL wants you to accept as the norm.   Today racism is being used to justify the removal of confederate and historical monuments.  Any prior slave owner, such as George Washington are subject to being removed from sight and from history.
  • Tool-Shut Down Free Speech:  Antifa and BLM have effectively shut down free speech on college and university campuses.  Ann Coulter, Ben Shapiro and others have been precluded from addressing college students.  Antifa is not content to merely shut down free speech, but to incite riots to intimidate other campuses from even considering booking a conservative speaker.  The DPL uses the Main Stream Media to shame supporters of the President or to ridicule any political figure who tries to counter DPL positions.  Physical violence, intimidation, and outright censorship are all methods supported by the Fascist playbook.
  • Tool-Political Intimidation:  The DPL lost it when Hillary Clinton lost!  Donald Trump is the only person who could reverse decades of DPL successes and their ultimate goal to “Completely Transform America”.  Sound familiar?  That is because this was the cornerstone of the Obama Presidency and DPL.  Capitalism would be replaced by Socialist Globalism and the creation of an all-powerful central government.  The current racial attacks against Trump, the “Russian Collusion” probe, etc., have a single goal, to SHUT DOWN THE TRUMP AGENDA, PERIOD.  IF the DPL can drive down Trump’s support, the weak knee Republicans in Congress would fold and cash in their Trump chips and block the Trump agenda. 

IF Trump is successfully stifled, the DPL will have an unfettered green light to rewrite history.  Vestiges of DPL complicity in American Slavery would be removed.  All positive images of American History would be replaced with all of the evil perpetrated by this nation upon weaker nations and peoples around the world.  American Exceptionalism would be replaced with American Shame.

The DPL knows that it’s time is limited if Trump remains as President.  They have to double down and remove all of their History ASAP!  You will see countless statues and monuments torn down or removed from the public square and stored in dark warehouses.  State flags will be purged from any Confederate symbols. 

You may even see Congress start to pass legislation that limits the displaying of Confederate symbols such as the Confederate Flag.  Once again, this would put Trump in the crosshairs for having to veto an obvious unconstitutional law and have to take the side of the confederacy.  Trump would not be on the side of the Confederacy but on the side of US history and free speech.  The MSM would still eviscerate him daily while Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell hide behind the New York Times and the Washington Post!

The very Life of the DPL is at stake today in this historical battle to maintain our true history.  Trump is currently the only person standing between DPL Fascist efforts and American Heritage.

Winston Churchill Would have Loved Twitter, Just Like President Trump

We often romanticize historical figures as being “statesmanlike”, polite, gentile, etc.  But, like all of our recollections of the past, they generally contain our own versions of the truth.

President Trump is often hammered in the press for his “tweets” and his straightforward manner of speaking.  He does not sugar coat his feelings or beliefs and it comes through his tweets.  

IF WINSTON CHURCHILL WERE ALIVE TODAY, HE WOULD RIVAL PRESIDENT TRUMP IN HIS USE OF TWITTER.  FURTHER, THE PRESS WOULD GO NUTS LIKE THEY DO WITH TRUMP!  MAYBE THE PRESS SHOULD READ A LITTLE HISTORY OF OUR PAST LEADERS AND LEARN A LITTLE HUMILITY IN THE PROCESS.

Below are a few examples of “Churchillian” quips and barbs about his contemporaries.  Just substitute the names of the persons being addressed and use @realdonaldtrump rather than Winston Churchill as the author!

  • Neville Chamberlain was one of Churchill’s favorite targets:
    • “He looked at foreign affairs through the wrong end of a municipal drainpipe”
    • “At the depths of that dusty soul there is nothing but abject surrender”
    • “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last”
  • Clement Atlee-The successor to Churchill:   
    • President Truman said of Atlee, “He seems a modest sort of fellow.“  Churchill responded with:  “He’s got a lot to be modest about.“
    • Churchill also said of Atlee:  “An empty taxi arrived at 10 Downing Street, and when the door was opened, Atlee got out”
  • Lord Charles Beresford, a popular British Admiral and member of Parliament.
    • Churchill described Beresford’s speaking skills as:  “He is one of those orators of whom it was well said: Before they get up, they do not know what they are going to say; when they are speaking, they do not know what they are saying; and when they have sat down, they do not know what they have said.“
  • Ramsey McDonald, Former Prime Minister of England:
    • Churchill compared McDonald’s lack of ability to make a decision in the following manner:  “a sheep in sheep’s clothing.“
    • Churchill did not stop there with his derision of McDonald:  “We know that he has, more than any other man, the gift of compressing the largest amount of words into the smallest amount of thought.“
  • Stanley Baldwin. conservative politician not well liked by Churchill:
    • Churchill said: “I wish Stanley Baldwin no ill, but it would have been much better if he had never lived.“
    • Churchill also quipped of Baldwin:  He occasionally stumbled over the truth, but hastily picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened”
  • Not PC, Churchill would definitely get the feminists up in arms today.  He once said of the British politician Bessie Braddock after she said:
    • Bessie: “Winston, you are drunk.“
      Winston: “My dear, you are ugly, but tomorrow I shall be sober and you will still be ugly.“
  • Churchill did not save his anti-female barbs for just Bessie.  
    • Lady Astor once said to Churchill “Winston, if you were my husband I would flavour your coffee with poison”
      Churchill: “Madam, if I were your husband, I should drink it”
  • Churchill’s Potty Humor:
    • The Lord Privy Seal requested a meeting with Churchill while Churchill was using the toilet.  
      • Winston said “Tell him I can only deal with one sh-t at a time!”
  • Churchill’s opinion of Charles de Gaulle:
    • Churchill said:  “What can you do with a man who looks like a female llama surprised when bathing?“

In addition to being known for his verbal assaults, he also left us with memorable anecdotes that were “twitterable”!

  • On Americans:  “We can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the other possibilities.”
  • The Art of Tact:  “Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.”
  • Truth:  “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”
  • Fanatics (Maybe he met a Democrat):  “A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.”
  • Fanatics Part II:  “Show me a young Conservative and I’ll show you someone with no heart.  Show me an old Liberal and I’ll show you someone with no brains.”
  • Politician’s Skill:  “A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year.  And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.”
  • Success:  “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
  • Animal Likes:  “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”

And Finally One for the Main Stream Media:  “When the eagles are silent, the parrots begin to jabber.” 

Next time you hear the MSM badmouth one of President Trump’s Tweets, remember Winston Churchill and ask yourself, what would old Winston say about this!

The Left & the MSM are THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT to America

Senate Security Briefing Documents the Real Issues Facing the US

The Left Wing media and the Democrat Party are distracting US citizens with the “Russia” and “Comey” issues while the world left by Obama is a powder-keg ready to consume the West.

The Senate Intelligence Committee met today in an open, then closed, session to review the status of world-wide threats with the heads of the CIA, FBI, NSA the DNI and others.  The purpose of the hearing was to lay out to the committee the status of world and threats to the US.  Too bad the MSM is cherry picking the discussion as even the open portion of the meeting was scary to say the least.  But, the MSM focus remains on the Comey firing and the “Russian/Trump” left-wing conspiracy.  They feel this is more important than the US being attacked at home and abroad by radicals and enemies across the globe.  This is TRAITOROUS at best.

Bullet Points from the Meeting:

  • The American people deserve to know that North Korea represents an EXISTENTIAL threat to the US NOW! 
  • They need to know that Russia is seeking to expand their territorial land grab in Europe, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. 
  • Also, Russia is stepping up their counter-intelligence efforts using updated technology and methods as are the US and others.
  •   NATO nations are threatened by Russian westward expansion; continued radical Islam terror attacks; 
  • The US is directly threatened by terrorism plans from Al Qaeda, ISIS, Iran and other radical groups;
  • and Iran is rapidly moving toward developing their nuclear capability and refining their delivery systems. 

All the MSM and the left can focus on is their narrative that Trump colluded with the Russians and defeated Clinton!

The graphic above shows that in spite of wall to wall coverage of Director Comey for the past year or so, only 17% of Americans have a positive view of the Director! In spite of his notoriety, 48% of Americans have no opinion of Comey.  And, 40% OF AMERICANS FEEL CONGRESS IS SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME ON THE “RUSSIAN AND WIRETAPPING” INVESTIGATIONS!  American need jobs and security, not political rhetoric!

Trump will continue to deliver on his campaign promises that are already making the MSM and the left apoplectic.  Their coordinated efforts to de-legitimize President Trump is inciting violence, hatred, and is posing an existential threat to our democracy and our future. 

Image result for uc berkely riots

The only possible outcome from this activity is higher and higher levels of violence ending with and all out armed conflict between the left and the legitimate government of the United States.  When?   Probably well before the end of Trump’s first term and perhaps as early as the mid-term elections.   We will see how sanctimonious the MSM pundits and the Democrat fringe are when this occurs.  Hopefully Trump will utilize the tactics of his hero Andrew Jackson, rather than Abraham Lincoln, and not engage in a civil war to bring the country back together. 

Far fetched?  It starts with killing free speech.  The left has a coordinated effort underway on college campuses and elsewhere to shut down conservative viewpoints.  Sanctuary cities are already defying Federal laws and are aided and abetted by left-wing judges who ignore the Constitution and the rule of law.  Firing the first shot is merely a matter of who and when.

Limbaugh & Coulter Owe Trump an Apology

Image result for Limbaugh and coulter

Good Grief!

AFTER ONLY 100 DAYS OF TRUMP; 

following the 8 years of Neo-Con wars under Bush with exploding deficits (doubled all prior presidents including when Bush had majorities in both houses);

then 8 more years of unbridled Obama Socialism, aided and abetted by GOP Speakers Boehner and Ryan;

Limbaugh and Coulter act like Trump is the Conservative’s Benedict Arnold due to the pending approval of Ryan’s $1.1T Omnibus Bill.  I’ll bet, neither has even read the 1,600+ pages of this bill!

To Limbaugh and Coulter:

 We, the American Voters who supported Trump, are not as stupid as you make us out to be as you talk down to us by explaining what is and is not getting done by Trump and how things “should” work.  We know how screwed up our government is, and how screwed up Congress and our Congressional leaders are.  You need to trust our support for Trump as a means to help him to achieve the goals we share with him by increasing his ratings and not drive his ratings down, like you do every time you criticize him. 

Do you think attacking Trump, who is the only chance the American People have to regain some level of sovereignty over their country, will help drain the poop infested swamp and overturn and turnaround the disasters of the Clinton, Bush and Obama Regimes?  You will only depress Trump’s approval ratings.  The “K” Street lobbyist gutter snipes, the US Chamber of Commerce, the hard left and the main stream media would use Trump’s lower approval ratings to “prove” to the limp wristed Congress that they don’t have to support Trump’s agenda due to his low approval ratings!  This will kill our chances for a true reset of our nation and kill the return of power to the American People. 

Congress is the Swamp: 

Congress is the Constitutional entity solely responsible for creating legislation and appropriating our hard-earned money, PERIOD.  Congressional authority over legislation and the purse is absolute and the President has no CONSTITUTIONAL  sway over legislation other than through the people. 

Article I of the US Constitution: All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Image result for greedy K street lobbyists

Congress is the heart and soul of the swamp and it is filled with the cash from the K Street lobbyists, the US Chamber of Commerce, the hard left, and free advertising support from the main stream media.   If a congressman or woman wants to be on a committee, they have to commit to raising a specified amount of money for the party.  In order to do this, the Congressman or woman has to go to the K Street lobbyists or the US Chamber and prostitute themselves for money for future favors they can grant to the lobbyists.  If you want to be the committee head, guess what?  You have to raise more money for the party. 

Is this a great way to run a government or what!!!!  Not!

You, the voter don’t count at all.  Your pittance donations are sneered at by these boils-on-the-butt-of-humanity.  Can you or your district or even your State guarantee a Congressman or woman a $3 M salary for their retirement?  Lobbyists can and do!  This is why the campaign promises of representatives and senators are irrelevant.  Whatever the K Street lobbyists want, they get.  Congress is bought and paid for!

Conservative media is like the old Italian Firing Squad.  They form a circle, then put the targets, the American Taxpayers, in the middle of the circle.  The result, we all get killed by K Street Lobbyist, the hard left and the mainstream media… 

We need conservative mouth pieces to counteract the Main Stream Media and the Congress.  Understand the long game, Trump does.  Will he screw up?  Of Course!  The Trump supporters know this and are not limp wristed like Congress or “some” in the conservative media.

KKK Leader Rule Still Hamstrings American Voters Wishes

Image result for robert byrd kkk

Robert Byrd:  The Byrd Rule was named after former Klansman and US Senator Robert Byrd.  The Byrd Rule basically laid out the rules surrounding what could and could not be included in “budget reconciliation” and where specific inclusions could be subject to the 60 Vote cloture procedure in the Senate.  It was a further move to insure that a 40% minority in the Senate could thwart the will of the people and the majority of the people’s representatives…

The bottom line, any use of the need to have 60 out of 100 Senators vote to stop debate in the Senate is asinine in the modern era.  

A simple majority of Senators, 51, should be sufficient to represent the will of the people.   This 60 vote filibuster requirement is not a part of the Constitution but merely a Senate “Rule” that was created by the Senate and can be changed or eliminated by the Senate.  The irony of the practice of requiring a 60 vote for stopping the use of filibusters to kill legislation was used extensively by Southern Democrats to kill Civil Rights Legislation!

Paul Ryan Using, or Hiding Behind the 60 Vote Rule?: 

Ostensibly, the demise of the repeal of Obamacare and the replacement of Obamacare fell prey to the 60 vote idiocy of the US Senate rules, including the bill killing Byrd Rule.  Ostensibly, the way the repeal/replacement was structured by Paul Ryan was to circumvent the arcane Senate requiring 60 votes to overcome a fake filibuster by using the Budget Reconciliation Rules of the Senate and thus prohibiting a MINORITY of Congress, specifically the Senate, to kill the Obamacare replacement. 

Was Ryan trying to use the Senate Rules to really pass a viable replacement of Obamacare or was he hiding behind the Senate Rules to insure that the RINO goals of keeping big government in charge of health care?  Only the very few members of the Ryan leadership team really know the answer. 

The sad part is that the American People, who supported the Republican take back of the House and Senate and in November of 2016 the election of Donald Trump who ran on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, are the losers.  Once again we counted on our Government to do their job and follow the will of the people.  Instead, Ryan and his cronies cow-towed to the will of big insurance, big pharma, and other interest groups to thwart the American People.

What is the Real Lesson?:

The real lesson that the American People have learned in watching this exercise of insanity is that the 60 Vote Cloture rule to end debate and allow a vote on a bill, whether subject to the budget Byrd Rule or not, has to be changed. 

We realize that the 60 vote rule does not make the Senate a great deliberative body but rather a slave to minority rule.  Period!

Same goes for confirmation of Presidential judicial appointments.  a simple 51 vote majority must be implemented or key judicial appointments can be derailed by 40 of the 100 Senators. 

The other use of the 60 vote rule is to try to hide behind a procedure to make themselves look good when they know full well that their vote is a farce.   All of the votes to repeal Obamacare by Republicans have been done with full knowledge that the Senate did not have the votes to stop a filibuster or last year’s when the House and Senate Republicans knew that Obama would veto the repeal vote.  But how many times have you seen Ryan and other puff out their chest and say that they voted to repeal Obamacare but X, Y, or Z stopped it from happening.  GET A MIRROR.  THE HOUSE AND SENATE REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVE AND RINO, HAVE ALLOWED THIS FARCE TO CONTINUE SO THEY CAN HIDE BEHIND CIRCA MID 1800’S RULES WHEN CAMPAIGNING FOR OFFICE.

Somehow, we need to force McConnell to repeal the Senate Rules to allow for majority rule.  Ryan and all Republican elected officials need to stand behind this change or nothing will ever change.

Some will say that when the Democrats are in power, they will use this Senate Rule change against us.  Where have you been the last 8 years?  The Democrats do not care about Senate Rules or the Constitution. Period!  Obama would issue an executive order and merely bypass Congress or the Constitution.  Ryan and McConnell would throw up their hands and say they don’t have the votes to overcome the Democrats. 

Enough is enough.  Trump’s agenda is OUR last chance to save this country from Progressive Rule and from the Big Donor, Big money interests that control this nation.   Obama put this country at the mercy of our sworn enemies and into the hands of the global progressive movement seats of power.

We need to stand and stand firm, NOW!

“Never argue with Stupid People. They will Drag You Down to Their Level and then Beat you with Experience.” –Mark Twain

Image result for argue with an idiot

Ever try to reason with a Progressive/Liberal (P/L), or is it Liberal/Progressive?  If you have, please reread the title if this article by Mark Twain, take two aspirin, and go to bed, NOW!

The first thing a P/L will do is start quoting talking points taken from Move-On.Org or another Soros website.  Then if you rebut their point, they will back up their assertions using another left-wing website as a source.  Not too dissimilar to CNN!  Or if things get really dicey, they will quote their oracle of truth, http://www.Snopes.com!  Another “fact checker” controlled by a P/L.

Then, if all of that fails to win you over, they invoke the “ist”, “ism” or “phobe” monikers on you.  You become a racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobe, xenophobic,  or say you engage in sexism, racism, or you are a racistismphobe!  Sounds like a Nancy Pelosi-ism! 

I think I am going to make a Tee-Shirt with the word, STUPIDPHOBE written on it.  (If I really want to raise their blood pressure, I will put #MAGA on the shirt as well!)  Whenever a P/L attempts to dissuade my views or attacks my moral compass, I will merely point to my Tee-Shirt and say Bless You!

Invoking God is another tactic of a P/L.  Now this is really rich as they are pro-death baby killers who think Gosnell was just eccentric and that Margaret Sanger really did not believe in eugenics and that the culling out of non-whites was not really in her writings.   The P/L will invoke God to sell their illogical views on unlimited and unrestrained immigration, wealth redistribution as being charity, and abortion as being compassionate. 

Finding truth today is elusive at best and requires a lot of due diligence to sort the wheat from the chaff.  First of all, seldom believe stories based on a “reliable source” or an unnamed spokesperson for …, etc.  If someone is not willing to put their name on the line then the line should not be taken seriously.  Secondly, when it comes to President Trump, if the words did not come from his mouth, his twitter account, or from Kellyanne Conway, then they are probably not true.  Whether you like the President or not, he is not bashful and seldom filters his words, spoken or written.  Kellyanne is one of the closest allies he has, other than family, and is privy to the goings-on of the inner sanctum of this administration.  Thirdly, if you see more than one network opining on a point using exactly the same phraseology, turn off your TV.  These are P/L talking points and most likely Fake or contrived “news”.

Finally, many of you jump the gun when the Speaker, the Senate Majority Leader, or another Republican or RINO says something stupid like demeaning President Trump or one of his actions.  Let me leave you with a final Mark Twain quote to remember when this occurs: 

“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” –Mark Twain

Trump, The Exorcist of the Left

In Two Weeks, Trump Is Crushing the Progressive’s Advances of the Past 40 Years

trump-exorcists

Trump has just been the President of the US for two weeks and about 8 hours as of this writing.  In a mere two weeks, President Trump has crushed the left’s promotion of illegal immigration, paused the entry of individuals from terrorist laden countries, rolled back crushing EPA and DOE regulations on American manufacturing, mining, agriculture, and small businesses, initiated the beginning of the repeal of Obamacare, slammed Iran with sanctions, worked with business leaders to keep and create new manufacturing and other jobs in the US, met with or conference called dozens of world leaders, fought to get most of his cabinet approved by the Senate, nominated a conservative judge to replace Scalia, and a plethora of other initiatives designed to wrestle this country back from the grasp of the progressive left and return it  to the people under the Rule of Law!  And he did all of this with less than half of his cabinet in place due to obstruction by the Left Wing Senators!

What is the Left’s Response?  VIOLENCE!

Protestors Bonfire

The Left displayed their true self these past two weeks by resorting to violence, ugly name calling, and even physically threatening President Trump and his family.  Don’t make the mistake and believe that the Left believes in democracy or the rule of law.  They use democracy and the rule of law as a weapon to destroy “We the People” financially, morally, and legally.  When they do not win, they resort to violence and the courts that they have packed with Leftist judges to thwart the will of the people.  Leftist progressives like George Soros fund the violence and the corrupt politicians and judges to fight to maintain globalist status quo.  Soros has a wad a cash in excess of $60 Billion so he can fund a lot of black shirt paid protestors, corrupt politicians and judges.

Trump represents the Anti-Christ to the Progressive Left!

Make no mistake, the Left will not go down easily and lose their hard-fought advances of the past.  The Left has taken over much of the main stream media (MSM) who will carry the Left’s torch against Trump and ANYONE who dares to support him.  The MSM is FAKE NEWS which makes defending the moves of this administration difficult but…  Trump’s use of social media is thwarting what would otherwise be an easy media assassination of President Trump personally as well as his policies.  He also works harder than the MSM and is up Tweeting before they even get out of bed!

I the near future, expect more violence and vitriol aimed at stopping Trump from totally reversing the Left-wing agenda that ALMOST took this country down militarily, financially, morally, and spiritually under Obama, Pelosi, Schumer and Reid.  There is a new Sheriff in town and he needs our support to truly Make America Great Again.

  A Trump failure would signal the end to our Constitutional Rule of Law as we knew it; and result in the implementation of Obama’s goal of transforming our nation by insuring that we have a mediocre military, a weak economy, and become an amoral nation.

Trump: “The Righteous Verdict of the American Voter” – Post Debate III

Trump’s Message to the “Arrogance of Washington DC”

Image result for Donald J. Trump

 

Trump’s stump message, “The Righteous Verdict of the American Voter will be heard by the Arrogance of Washington DC” came through loud and clear at last night’s debate in Las Vegas.  Hillary’s demeanor and responses were the epitome of the Arrogance of Washington DC elites.  Her condescending grin only served to convey contempt for the entire process that she was tolerating in order to reach her rightful place on the throne of the highest office in the nation.  The debate was a stark contrast between a populist-conservative and a quintessential Washington DC elitist insider.

Stark Contrast in Philosophy on Display

American First Vs. Globalism

Domestic and Economic Issues:  The contrast between Trump and Clinton could be summed up as being a comparison of Trump’s unleashing the individual by stripping away the shackles and greed of government versus Hillary’s increasing government size and encroachment into our lives, in every facet of our being, while increasing our dependence on the government.  Trump’s economic plan included across the board tax and regulation cuts and Hillary’s included increasing taxes on the rich and not touching or increasing regulation.

Foreign Affairs:  Internationally, Trump contrasted a foreign policy of peace through strength behind his banner of America First against Clinton’s continued meddling in foreign matters and further diving into the abyss of global policing and regime change. 

Supreme Court Views:  The contrast was never more severe when the question of the Supreme Court was raised.  Trump’s originalist view of the Constitution versus Hillary’s internationalist view of the Constitution was stark with the former insuring an America based on our Founder’s principles and words versus her view that the Constitution is a living document and should be conformed to current conditions.

Abortion:  Trump was the first Republican Presidential candidate in memory to take on abortion head on.  In no uncertain terms, he stated that Roe V. Wade should be overturned and the abortion question returned to the States.  He also stated that partial birth abortion was never acceptable.  Hillary stated that she was a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade and that partial birth abortion was a critical element of a woman’s right to choose.  She also defended Planned Parenthood but erroneously stated the PP provided needed mammograms and other cancer preventions which is simply not true.  PP is not even licensed for such procedures.

Trump Tweaks the Main Stream Media (including Fox) Again!

Image result for tRUMP TWEEKS MEDIA

Classic Trump came out when asked whether he would support the outcome of the election.  True to form, ala first Republican Primary Debate, Trump stated “I will look at it (election results) at the time.”!  The MSM, pundits and commentators went ballistic and that was their take-away for the debates.  Then, at today’s Trump campaign stop in Delaware, Ohio, Trump stated:

“To all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States, that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election if I win.”

Trump went on to say that after he reviews the results of the election, presumably State by State, he would decide whether to concede or not based on whether there was wide-spread fraud OR if the vote counts were close enough to trigger statutory recounts and certification.  This is the LAWFUL POSITION ALL CANDIDATES SHOULD TAKE!  Why would you promise to CONCEDE BEFORE THE ELECTION?  Al Gore refused to accept the results of the 2000 elections and had to be sued by Bush to get the Supreme Court to uphold the Florida recount and the overall election results.  Kerry in 2004 likewise took a position that Bush had Rigged the election costing Kerry the election.

Trump still knows how to manage the media as he bought himself at least 2-3 days of 24-7 comments with this tactic!  No one ever said Washington Elites were bright!  

Footnote:  Chris Wallace of Fox News was the debate moderator who performed well and was fair to Trump and Clinton while bringing our the real issues facing our nation whether the issues were comfortable to the candidates.

Fox News In the Tank for Hillary?

The Post-Ailes-Murdock Impact

Cooking the Books to Dampen Trump Enthusiasm

fox_news_channel_upside-downThis week’s Fox Presidential Poll was disturbing as it showed a significant gain by Hillary over Trump.  BUT, when you look at the 64 pages of the “internals” of the poll, you quickly see that the poll was deliberately manipulated! 

The preference or “how would you vote today” section showed that on 10/16, Hillary cornered 48.5% of the respondents while Trump was down to 40.0%!  One month ago, 9/16, the poll was virtually deadlocked with only a half a percent difference.  Hillary came in at 45.5% and Trump was on her pumps at 45.0% which is a virtual tie.

So, what happened?  Was it the 11-year-old recording of Trump trash talking or was it something else.  Why did 3,000 WikiLeaks emails have no impact on Hillary’s numbers?  The answer is that the poll was cooked! 

How?  Just poll a higher percentage of Democrats versus Republican registered and likely voters.  The chart below shows the sampling breakdowns for both 10/16 and 9/16 for both Democrat and Republicans.  Fox increased the percentage of Democrats from 40% on 9/16 to 44.5% on 10/16.  This is an increase of 4.5% more Democrats that were included in the poll.  But, it is worse!  Republican voters comprised 37.5% on 9/16 but were reduced to 35.5% on 10/16!  This is a decrease of 2.5% of Republican respondents. 

When you add the increase in Democrats with the decrease in Republicans between 9/16 and 10/16, you will find that the 10/16 poll sampled 6.5% more Democrats in the current poll!  In the 9/16 poll, the difference between Democrats and Republicans was on 2.5%.  In the current poll this difference was increased to 9.0%.

fox-poll-9-16

Why would Fox Do This?

First of all, have you heard ANY Fox anchor, analyst, reporter or janitor even hint that the internals of the polling were changed?  NOPE!

So, when Fox News has been leaning slightly more towards Trump the Hillary, why would they join with the left and cook the polls to show Trump declining in order to discourage Trump supporters?   Trace the attitudes at Fox to the departure of Roger Ailes and the take back by Globalist Rupert Murdock and his sons of Fox News that is owned by Murdock’s parent company News Corp. 

Murdock is an open border, “Free Trade” proponent, globalist who strongly disagrees with Trump’s policies regarding immigration, border security, trade, and many others.  Murdock, Fox, now is subtly, or not, moving Fox towards an Anti-Trump atmosphere.  Murdock is fighting Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and others who openly support Trump.  The Murdock boys even have come out and said that the anti-Trump pin-up host Megyn Kelly is the future of Fox.

trump 1

So, you really need to begin to filter what you are hearing on Fox like you do with CNN and other MSM outlets.  The message may not be overtly anti-Trump, but the innuendo will lead to a pro-Hillary conclusion.  From now until the week before the election, do not get discouraged with polls that show Trump down. 

Keep pushing, campaigning and exposing the utter gutter corruption of the Clintons

or we will lose the White House, the Supreme Court,

and our Constitutional freedoms and rights.
