RINO Watch Weekly Report: “Stupid is as Stupid Does! 2/14/18

This is our 2nd installment of our RINO Watch stupidity report.  I know I will never run out of materials as the RINOs always outdo themselves to vie for the stupidity award.  This week is no exception!

GOP’s Head of Its 2018 National Senatorial Campaign Committee Ditches Trump’s Immigration Plan for the Schumer Amnesty Plan

You just can’t make this stuff up.  Colorado (the home of legalized legal pot) Senator Cory Gardner broke ranks with the President and endorsed the Schumer amnesty bill.  Under this bill, 2 million illegal aliens, ostensibly DACA candidates, would be granted amnesty and citizenship, the $25 Billion for the wall could be used for “other” purposes, NO changes to chain migration, leave the VISA lottery in place, and no additional border security changes such as doing away with the idiotic “catch and release” program.  

Gardner knows that the President supports Senator Grassley’s bill that includes all 4 of the Trump template for the DACA immigration reform.  

What does this mean for the GOP’s chance of increasing its seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms when you have the head of the re-election committee obstructing the President’s agenda!  Especially since the public overwhelmingly supports the Presidents framework for immigration.  Remember, this clown Gardner controls the cash for candidates who are seeking election in 2018.  How can Mitch McConnell have an idiot like Gardner running the National Senatorial Campaign Committee?  RINO’s have all had a lobotomy.

Liddle Bobby Corker, Senator from Tennessee, Changes His Liddle Mind and Wants to Run for Re-Election!

In September of 2017, Corker announced that he would not seek re-election.  Now, he is having second thoughts.  After all, what would Liddle Bobby Corker do without his Senate Cafeteria pass?  Remember, once again, Corker is a RINO that has badmouthed the President incessantly since the 2016 election.  But, after the Trump Tax cuts are becoming popular, Liddle Bobby wants to jump up and try to grab onto the Trump coattails!  Liddle Bobby, go away quietly and let a real conservative populist, Marsha Blackburn, step up and take over you vacuous place!

The Tennessee Tea Parties are ready to jump all over Corker if he chucks his hat into the ring.  Former Putnam County Republican Chairman and conservative activist Rachel Welch told Breitbart, “If Corker makes it official that he’s running, I am calling Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s office in the next minute and offering every ounce of time, energy, events coordination, and money I can muster.  “And I would look forward to the #humiliation Corker would suffer in losing as an incumbent. Go away Liddle Senator Bob Corker. Just GO AWAY.”

Can’t add much to that!

Republican Trey Gowdy Opens an Investigation into Trump Handling of the Rob Porter Spousal Abuse Vetting

If having the Democrats and the Swamp going after the Trump administration for Russian Collusion, obstruction of justice and jay-walking, we now have the House Government Oversight Committee looking into how the White House Staff Secretary was allowed to work in the White House since his two ex-wives alleged he was physically and emotionally abusive to them.  

I get it. spousal abuse is a serious and inexcusable offense against wives and husbands and cannot be condoned.  But, Gowdy jumped the gun after FBI head Christopher Wray testified that the FBI had finished their vetting of Rob Porter last July and then November.  Gowdy, did not even mention the White House Personnel Security department who is the liaison with the FBI in vetting of WH staff and who is the interface with the White House Chief of Staff, not the FBI!  

My issue with the Gowdy inquiry is that we have the Obama FBI, the DOJ, the Intel agencies and the State Department absolutely interfering with a Presidential election.  While spousal abuse is serious, it is secondary to interference with a Constitutionally specified election of the highest office of the land.  Further, Republicans are better at investigating Republicans as they won’t have to fight the press like they do when trying to prosecute the attempted coup d’état against Donald Trump!

We posted an article on the Rob Porter Roast yesterday.  You can read it at https://wp.me/pY51c-19G.

Anyone remember who was prosecuted when Gowdy investigated the Benghazi fiasco when 4 Americans died at the inept hand of the Obama/Clinton administration.  Oh yeah, NO ONE WAS REFERRED BY GOWDY FOR PROSECUTION.

Trump Agenda Dependent on Dumping McConnell’s 60 Vote Rule

Even if the Republicans gain 9 seats in the Senate in the 2018 Mid-Terms, Trump will need the idiotic 60 vote rule in the Senate changed to a simple majority in order to complete our agenda and restore this country to economic prosperityWhat is McConnell’s excuse for hanging onto the 60 vote rule?  He says the Democrats will use this against the Republicans WHEN the Democrats take back the Senate!!!! 

Well, if you don’t pass the Trump agenda, you will ensure that the Democrats take over the Senate in 2018!  

Will 60 Republicans in the Senate Save the Trump Agenda?

Nope!  We still have to deal with McCain, Graham, Murkowski, Collins and others who are left of center “Republicans”.  They will fight Trump on immigration, the budget, the Wall, and many other issues.  If the Senate does not dump the anti-democratic 60 vote rule, the Trump agenda will be in serious jeopardy.  Even worse, Trump’s long-term effort to reduce our deficit will be a lost hope.  Too many in the Senate are big spenders and who support big government programs like Obamacare!

Why do Senators love the 60 vote Rule?

Senators hide behind the 60 vote rule as an excuse for doing nothing to pass needed legislation!  When Republican Senators know that there will be less than 60 votes for a popular piece of legislation they actually oppose, they will vote for it in order to say that they voted on a popular issue but it did not pass!  The 60 vote rule is a gutless shield for do-nothing Senators.  If Republican members of the House knows that the Senate only needed 51 votes to pass legislation, you will also see just how lily-livered some of these members are as well.

Pressure Your Senator Now

During this Mid-Term year, pressure your Senator to do away with the 60 Vote rule.  If your Senator is not up for re-election, pressure  and pin down your candidates on their stance on the 60 vote rule.  Do note take any weak answer as an answer.  Also, pressure them on their position for eliminating the blocking of Presidential appointments.  After more than a year, Trump’s ambassador to Germany, a key European ally, is still not confirmed.  Many appointment have given up and withdrawn.  They can’t wait forever for the Senate.  They have families to support too!

RINO Watch Weekly Report: “Stupid is as Stupid Does!

At least once a week I will publish a RINO Watch stupidity report.  I know I will never run out of materials as the RINOs always outdo themselves to vie for the stupidity award.  This week is no exception!

*****

RINOs Respond to 8 Month Old FAKE NEWS Story and Warn Trump Not to Fire Heir Robert Mueller!

Of course the usual suspects, Lindsay Graham and Susan Collins, had to respond to a question from the media this weekend regarding their reaction to Trump wanting to fire Special Council Robert Mueller, or even conflicted Deputy AG Rosenstein.  This, in spite of the fact that this FAKE NEWS story was originally published almost 8 months ago and the President and his staff have denied the story!  Even Senator Grassley felt he had to chime in and warn Trump not to fire Mueller! 

DUH!  Assume the story is true, it has been 8 months and Trump has not fired Mueller yet!  So, Where is the BEEF?

RINOs suffer from the Al Sharpton Jessie Jackson Mic Syndrome (ASJJMS).  They can’t pass up opening their mouth when a mic and a camera are around.  It is like an automatic reflex.  Mic, mouth open.  Camera, mouth open.  Trouble is they never engage their brain before opening their mouths!

*****

Goofy Special Council Ken Starr-Mueller Should LOOK INTO whether Trump Lied About Wanting to Fire Mueller!

This is separate from the RINO comments above because Ken Starr proved that he is a Eunuch RINO as evidenced by his less than testosterone driven investigation of the obviously hyper-testosterone driven Bill Clinton.  The most NOT BRILLIANT admission by star in the interview was:

“He can ask for Mueller to be fired for any reason.  The president’s power is extremely broad, as long as he’s not engaged in discrimination or accepting bribes.”

Well, apparently he did not bribe himself nor is he discriminating against the old white guy Robert Mueller.  Maybe he is guilty of discriminating against Mueller’s obvious leftist-elite political animus, failure of Mueller to recuse himself in light of his obvious conflicts of interests, or maybe for just being an old white guy!

*****

RINOs Want to Stop the Release of the Nunes Memo Regarding Possible DOJ/FBI Corruption Regarding FISA Misuse

Lindsay Graham is in the spotlight once again along with the DOJ/FBI trying to Obstruct the Public’s Right to Know if its highest law enforcement and intelligence agencies have been corrupted!  Graham wants to wait to release the information until:

“I don’t want [the memo] released yet,” he said. “I want somebody without a political bias to come in and look at the allegations I have seen.”

And, pray tell dear Lindsay,  just who in Washington is WITHOUT POLITICAL BIAS!  

The TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S own Department of Justice, through the Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd told Rep Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, in a letter this week that releasing a memo  “extraordinarily reckless.”  How about the “extraordinarily reckless” abuses by the DOJ and the FBI to date in the Clinton Non-Investigation MATTER, the IRS Scandals, Fast and Furious Scandals, Benghazi botched investigations, Uranium-One “vetting” and more… 

Boyd thought that it would be a better idea to pass the memo to the DOJ  watchdog, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  This would keep this out of the public for at least another 2 months.  Meanwhile the two Star-Struck lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still working for the agencies in spite of their obvious bias as set forth in their own text messages.

Hopefully Nunes will get the committee to vote to release the memo this week.  President Trump has indicated that, in spite of the objections raised by his own DOJ and FBI, he would welcome the memo being made available to the public!  AG Sessions and the entire 7th floor of the FBI better not get too comfortable in their lush surroundings. 

The President can’t be very happy about the lack of respect he has been shown by this agencies!  The President has shown a great deal of constraint given that if he did ORDER the DOJ/FBI to release info, then the MSM and the left would cry OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE!

Trump’s Immigration Proposal-Chill Out! Understand the Plan First!

See the source image

Trump struck a nerve on the Right and the Left when he had Steven Miller announce his Border Wall/DACA/Immigration Plan yesterday.  Given both wings have slammed this proposal, actually gives this plan more, not less, merit!  Pelosi/Schumer and Ted Cruz all hit the mics to thump their chests and condemn the President’s plan!

But, What are the Facts?

Amnesty Vs Path to Citizenship:

The right is clamoring that this plan is Amnesty for 1.8 million DACA candidates.  Any plan to them is equal to amnesty.  When you press them, they say that rather than amnesty, the DACA candidates should get in line like every other immigration applicant.  OK, I agree, but so does Trump!  An immigration applicant files for immigration then undergoes a medical, criminal, and other forms of background checking.  This takes anywhere from 6 months, if you are married to an American citizen, to 3 years plus. 

TRUMP IS PROPOSING THAT THE DACA CANDIDATES WAIT 10-12 YEARS TO BECOME A CITIZEN DURING WHICH TIME THEY UNDERGO THE SAME BACKGROUND CHECKS AND PROVE THAT THEY ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE CONSIDERED AS A DACA CANDIDATE.  Further, during this period, the candidates can be rejected if they enroll to receive any type of government subsistence; or, if they commit a crime; or if they return to their “home” country without permission.

The right is apoplectic about the 1.8M DACA candidates that were included in the President’s plan.  CHILL!  The 690,000 DACA candidates are those who enrolled in the DACA program.  No one really knows but it is estimated that there are another 1.2M potential DACA enrollees who have not signed up yet.  Before you start screaming, “They had their chance”, there is a small roadblock called the US Constitution and its Equal Protection clause.  If a person otherwise qualifies as a DACA Candidate but did not sign up, the likelihood is extremely high that the Supreme Court would allow those people to enroll in DACA.  You may say that they are not citizens and have no rights.  Sorry but since they are in the US and have been residing here they to inherit constitutional protections.  It may be that rather than there being an additional 1.2M potential DACA enrollees, it may be less, it may be more.  But, the President realistically included actual and potential candidates.  Would you rather have this or have him lie to you and in the end you find out there were really 1.8 applicants!  

Since the President is putting a 10-12 year period restriction on the DACA candidates, I would think they would return to their parent’s home country and apply for citizenship!  It may be faster if this plan is adopted!  Since the President put in a 10-12 year implementation plan, this satisfies the BORDER SECURITY FIRST crowd!

$25 Billion for the Wall and Border Security

President Trump’s plan calls for $25Billion to be set aside, and not subject to future Congressional rescission, to build the wall, add more border agents, provide for additional security enhancements to the Southern and CANADIAN borders, and build border courts.  The President knows that he may or may not continue to have Republican majorities in the House and Senate and wants the funding to be set in stone.  Plus, he knows that he cannot implement all of the needed Wall and security changes in one or two budget years.  He does not want to take a chance on having Congress playing games with this funding.  Republicans or Democrats!

Chain Migration

President Trump included an end to chain migration and will ask that it be replaced with merit based migration requirements.  The only vestige to chain migration will be that an approved immigrant can bring his or her spouse and their children.  This also applies to the DACA candidates.

Visa Lottery Program:

The President is proposed that this program be eliminated totally.  As stated above, visa applicants will be subjected to merit based scrutiny and be required to meet specific criteria that documents that they will be contributory to the US economy.  More later.

Port and Northern Border Security

The President is also proposing measures to beef up port security to eliminate incoming illicit drugs and human trafficking.  These same measures will be put in place along our Canadian borders that span approximately 5,500 miles!  Just think how easy it is to cross the great lakes from Canada and enter the US!  Not hard!

Other Provisions:

Before we finish up with the other provisions, what Trump is actually doing is comprehensive immigration!  If he gets most of what he will finishing outlining next week, there were be few if any real major issues remaining regarding our immigration policy.  But, don’t tell the Left or the Media!

Legal Immigration:

The President will cut back on the numbers eligible to be approved to come into this country.  The President is slowing legal immigration to allow time to assimilate all of the chain, lottery, and refugee immigrants that have come into this country in the past 15 years.  He want to make sure we can ensure that hot pockets of unassimilated immigrants are successfully melded into our society and our economy.  He also wants to make sure that during the growth of our economy, that AMERICANS, not immigrants have priority to receive the newly created jobs!

The President is also proposing to crack down on legal Visa overstays that are the largest contributor to our illegal immigration.  As part of his border security provisions, he will be implementing tacking and apprehension policies to eliminate Visa overstays.

The President will also be proposing to beef up and require the use of E-Verify.  I am not sure if he will not only require private sector employees to use E-Verify, but he should force government welfare agencies, State Food Stamp agencies, and other governmental agencies who approve subsistence or healthcare assistance to use E-Verify.  Once the wall and other security policies are put in place, this will ensure that anyone who sneaks through will be caught by E-Verify and asked to leave or be prosecuted.

There will be other details that will be released next week and as they are I will update this post.  But, take a deep breath and take conservative and liberal media with a grain of salt when they rail against the President’s proposal.  Also, remember, final legislation is up to Congress.  So, when I hear Ted Cruz and other condemn this proposal, I would remind them that the President is trying to get YOU TO DO YOUR JOB AND COME UP WITH A BILL YOURSELVES!  It is easy to run up to a mic and complain. 

Actual work is hard, that is why it called work!

If the President can get his proposal through Congress, he will once again accomplish something no one has been able to do since before 1966, solve many immigration issues and secure this great nation.

DACA is CACA-690 Thousand vs 325 Million

Fact:  As of September of 2017, only 690,000 have actually enrolled in the DACA program and potentially eligible to participate in any future DACA legislation including Amnesty and chain migration for at least their parents!  That represents .2% (2 people out of every 1,000) of the total population of the US.  Yet, to hear the media and the Democrat Progressive Left the DACA issue is the most important issue facing this nation and that our very soul is dependent on granting amnesty and family chain migration to this group!  Really?

DACA and Chain Migration-NEVER!

Even mushy conservatives our spewing rhetoric trying to justify allowing DACA recipients to use chain migration to legalize their parents and extended family.  BS!  It was their parents who broke our laws in the first place and brought or caused the DACA “kids” to be here in the first place This is nuts.  Get in line and apply!  It is estimated that if DACA enrollees utilize chain migration, the total number of people granted “amnesty” via a DACA “FIX” would be 10,350,000!  Further, the total NET cost of this program would be $28 Billion in 10 years!  Illegal immigration last year cost Americans a NET $115,000,000,000 ($115 Billion).  Had enough yet!

DACA VS America

HomelessWe have 550,000 homeless men and women in the US today.  OF those, 40,000 are veterans, 54% disabled and  40% are Black.  Over 21% of the homeless reside in the Sanctuary State of California and another 15.7% in Sanctuary State of New York for a combined total of 37.2%.  The two richest States in the Union have the most homeless and no plan to improve the overall economy in order to move the homeless into a sound financial existence.  How about passing laws to treat the homeless who are mentally ill, drug addicted, or otherwise disabled?  Do you know why this is not a priority?  THE ONLY LOBBY GROUPS INVOLVING THE HOMELESS ARE THOSE THAT ARE MAKING MONEY OFF OF THE HOMELESS POPULATION!!!  (Excluding the Veterans groups who are actually working with the VA to solve this problem for vets.)  How about we take care of the thousands of addicted Americans before worrying about 690,000 DACA enrollees?

Drug Addiction:  We are losing 65,000 Americans per year to opioid overdoses every year.  This is the same number of soldiers we lost OVER A PERIOD OF 20 YEARS!  How about we take care of the thousands of addicted Americans before worrying about 690,000 DACA enrollees?

Black On Black Homicide In Our Inner Cities:  We have all read or heard about the daily carnage in our Inner Cities that are run by Liberal Politicians.  A lot of the poverty in these inner cities is due to the influx of illegal immigrants who will work for less money than our own citizens.  Allowing illegals to compete against our own citizens is helping to memorialize welfare and poverty in our inner cities that drives our youth into drug gangs and perpetuates the high Black on Black homicide rates.

See the source image

 I could go on for days pointing out areas of our nation that need to be addressed that compete with the $28 Billion that would be spent supporting DACA enrollees if they are granted amnesty.  Why bother!  This is a mid-term election year and the limp-wristed RINOs in Congress would never stand up to the Liberal Left’s assault if the Republicans deferred DACA amnesty past this March. 

President Trump is trying to thread in between the RINOs and the Liberals to get the wall built, end chain migration, and end the idiotic immigration lottery system.  He really wants to include the creation of a merit based immigration system but it is doubtful he could get anywhere near 50, let along 60 votes to get the whole enchilada! 

So, we are probably looking at granting amnesty to 690,000 DACA enrollees and at least their parents who have either committed a felony or aided and abetted in the commission of a felony!  Meanwhile, many American priorities will go unfunded and unresolved.  Until RINOs can stand up to the immigration activists, including those who want cheap labor for businesses, we will repeat this DACA fiasco, or another flavor of DACA, in the near future. 

If the wall is not built and security beefed up ala Trump priorities, we will be staring at even more illegal immigrant challenges.

What if we do Nothing to “Fix” DACA?

Not much!  As long as the DACA enrollees do not commit a felony or leave America to go back “home”, they are not targets for deportation.  The left tries to portray Trump as having a list of names and addresses for DACA enrollees and has ICE on the line ready to deport the DACA enrollees on March 15th if Congress does not act!  BS! 

How about Congress pass a bill that allows the DACA enrollees to stay with a work permit for 10 years.  After 5 of the 10 years they can apply for citizenship and undergo the same process all other immigrants have to go through.  If they do not go through the process, they will be expelled after 10 years to a country of their choice!  In the interim, they are ineligible to receive any benefits from the Federal or State government programs!

Corker “Trigger” Tax Bill Amendment is Idiotic!

See the source image

The #1 real news story is the possibility of Congress passing the Trump Tax Cuts and Reform bill.  Something this critical to this nation, always incites Idiots to come up with Idiotic schemes, like Senator Bob Corker’s “Trigger” amendment.   Is this amendment about Roy Roger’s horse?  Nope.  It is the proof that Forest Gump was right when he said, “Stupid Is As Stupid Does”.

Bob Corker purports to be a deficit hawk.  Bob Corker purports to be a fiscal conservative.  But, this amendment is neither a guard against raising the deficit nor is it fiscally conservative.

Corker’s amendment would require tax cuts be reduced if the national debt rose after this bill as passed.  He has also stated that if a recession occurs, then this trigger would raise taxes when revenues fall due to a recession.  What part of the trigger is fiscally responsible and conservative?  NONE of IT.

There is no doubt that during the first 18-24 months, treasury revenues from income taxes may be reduced until business has had time to reinvest and create more jobs.  Further, it will take some time for the increased take home pay makes it way into the market via consumer purchases.  If you “trigger” a tax increase during this period, it is a surety that the impact of the tax cuts and reform on the economy will be reduced.  If we experience a cyclical recession during the initial 18-24 months, which is the same impact as the slowing of revenues, then the LAST thing you would do is RAISE TAXES.  You would have to be an idiot, or a Progressive-Leftist-Socialist to advocate tax increases during a recession, BOB.  

My question is where was Bob Corker and anyone who now claims to be against increasing the nation debt when Bush and Obama rocketed the national debt to $20 Trillion!  Crickets.  

So Bob, why don’t you man up, buy some elevator shoes, stand on a step-stool, take two Viagra, and just say that you want to throw a monkey-wrench in Trump’s tax plan.  Hypocrite.

Why Alabama Must Vote for Roy Moore!

Donald Trump’s Continued Presidency May Depend On Whether Roy Moore is Elected to the U.S. Senate. 

Step One:  If Roy Moore is defeated in Alabama on December 12th, his Democrat opponent Doug Jones Could be seated on December 23rd or within a week or so of that date.  If the 2017 Tax Cuts have not been approved yet, the Senate would be split 51-49.  The chances of the bill still passing is slim to none.  You have Collins, Flake, Corker, McCain and others itching to kill the Trump Tax Cuts.

Step Two:  The Trump voters are extremely upset with the Republican Congress failure to pass tax cuts and the repeal and replacement of Obamacare and rebels in the 2018 Mid-Terms and gives the House back to the Democrats and maybe even the Senate. If the Democrats Take Back the House in 2018, the Next Two Years Would Be Spent Impeaching President Trump and Killing His (Our) Agenda!

Impacts of Not Electing Judge Roy Moore:

  • 2017 Tax Reform and Tax Cuts would be killed permanently
  • Obamacare Repeal and Replace would be killed permanently
  • The Border Wall and increased border would be killed permanently
  • President Trump’s 70 immigration reforms would be killed permanently
  • DACA Amnesty would be adopted.
  • Abortion limits would be killed permanently
  • US security would be damaged due to the weakening of President’s Trump legitimacy in the world capitals.
  • Further improvements to the VA system would be killed permanently
  • Trump’s ability to appoint conservative judges, including to the Supreme Court, would be severely limited and force a compromise to more liberal judges
  • Many more negative impacts…

Make no mistake, Judge Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones is a died in the wool hard-line progressive leftist.  At a minimum, he supports:

  • Partial Birth Abortion
  • Limits to the 2nd Amendment
  • A No Vote for Trump’s Tax Plan
  • Obamacare Expansion
  • Not Funding the Southern Border Wall
  • Supports full Amnesty for DACA Recipients
  • Many more Progressive-Left Views.

Even if you believe Moore’s accusers, Jones is more of a threat to this nation than Moore.  If Moore is elected, he will probably be investigated by the weak Senate “Ethics” Committee.  If he is sanctioned or expelled, at least the Republican Governor could appoint another Republican replacement if need be.  Once Jones is elected, GAME OVER!

DO NOT VOTE FOR DOUG JONES!  PERIOD

Trump Tax Cuts/Reform-Senate RINO TRAITORS Will Undermine American Families

No Tax Cut for the Rich or No Tax Cuts At All.  Which is the real issue?

Image result for stuart varney on tax reform

Many business commentators like Stuart Varney, who I watch every day and respect, are constantly harping on the fact that the House tax cuts/reforms will not cut taxes for the top 1%.  But, what Stuart and others are missing is that in the Senate there is a Republican “Band of RINOs”, led by McCain, Corker, Flake, Collins, Murkowski, and possibly others, who are poised to inject a lethal poison pill into any Tax Cut/Reform that is supported by President Trump. 

These senators have no empathy for, no loyalty to, and no desire to help the working classes of this country by stimulating the economy and letting Americans keep more of their own money.  Anything to thwart the Trump Agenda is fine with them.  These are the same Band of RINOs that killed the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, another Trump priority and another anvil on the backs of some American Taxpayers.  It is hard to believe that this country, the Republican and Democrat parties, have become so crass as to ignore the plight of We the People.  

While analyzing this sick phenomena, a host of questions kept flooding my pea brain.

  • How can someone like John McCain, who is touted as an American Hero, abandon the American People and their economic woes just to be vindictive?  I had to remind my self that McCain in 2015 slammed the members of the tea parties by saying; “I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of this (tea arty ideals) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature.”
  • How can the Senate “Leadership” maintain arcane rules that ensure that the Senate will never (in this Congress) pass any meaningful legislation that is part of  the Trump Agenda that would benefit the entire nation?
  • How were these same Band of RINOs, who hated the Tea Party movement of 2010 and 2014, re-elected in the last elections? 
  • How can an entire Democrat Party totally band together to slam their own constituents and memorialize their economic woes?
  • How can minority leaders not support the Trump Tax Cuts/Reforms that would improve the lives of their constituencies?

There were many other questions but the bottom line answer is that our elected Congress men and women and Senators do not care about WE THE PEOPLE!  They only care about us when the ballot boxes are opened!  They will do and say anything to stay in office and believe that we are too dumb to vote them out of office.  WELL…!

I may be wrong but I’ll predict that the Senate will block any meaningful tax cuts or reforms.  They support the status quo of globalism and open borders.  Your job, or lack of a job, is you problem.  The Band of RINOs and the democrat block, are the most despicable human beings ever to darken the doors of Congress.  They belie their oath of office and have nothing but disdain for WE THE PEOPLE.

2018 MUST be the year the incumbent elites are thrown out and America First candidates voted in.  The President and We the People may have to wait until after the 2018 midterms and that is OK.  The President will slam the Senators who block the tax cuts and reforms as he should.  We must remain steadfast and insist that we are represented by real America First men and women…

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.”

GW Bush-Disgraced Himself and His Legacy

Image result for George Bush and Donald Trump

GW Bush has maintained that he did not believe prior presidents should comment on or criticize presidents who succeed him.  On October 19th, 2017, the U.S. Military Academy’s Association of Graduates will presented the Thayer Award to GW Bush.  Following the acceptance, Bush took the opportunity to bash the current president,  President Trump.  Obviously, Bush’s principles only apply to fellow elitists and progressive-left prior presidents!

Accuses Trump of Being an Isolationist!

Bush stated in his address, “We’ve seen a return of isolationist sentiments forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places”, accusing Trump of pulling back from confronting hostile forces around the world and endangering American security.  Bush should look square in the mirror and ask himself whether the killing of over 200,000-400,000 Iraqis and 4,487 US Soldiers, with an additional 32,233 US soldiers wounded in action, was worth taking out Saddam Hussein and creating a huge power vacuum in the region and emboldening Iran and Syria.  He should ask himself why HE asked General Franks to draw up an attack plan for Iraq just 2 weeks after Franks initiated action in Afghanistan!  (Follow this link http://wp.me/pY51c-Qx to  “GW Bush and the Ascension of Iran & ISIS“) Then, why didn’t Bush himself create a Status of Forces agreement with Iraq before he left office in order to honor those 37,000+ US military casualties he ordered into battle and not risk throwing away the blood and treasure he expended for a indefensible conflict?

Since Trump took office,

  • He has reclaimed Iraq from ISIS that was allowed to take hold in Iraq and Syria due to a lack of a Status of Forces agreement!
  •   Trump has also stalemated the use of chemical weapons by Syria by sending in 59 cruise missiles as a message.
  • Trump has assumed the responsibility to denuclearize both North Korea and Iran, a responsibility abdicated by GW Bush!  (Remember, the negotiations with Iran over nuclear weapons started with Bush with no conclusion as he kicked this nuclear can down the road.)  Trump is using hard-line tactics to force both North Korea and Iran to disarm and cease their nuclear weapons and delivery systems development.  For the first time, both regimes know they are facing a resolute President.
  • Trump has actually made NATO members pony up their financial commitments to honor their military commitments in “distant places”.
  • Trump has also asked for and received commitment by over 50 Arab and Muslim nations to fight against terrorism and to cut off funding to terror organizations.

So GW, does this sound like a President who supports isolationism?  Wise up and pay attention!  This isn’t about JEB!  It is about engaging the world once and for all and make it more peaceful through strength and engagement.

Accuses Trump of Weakening America and the World by Abandoning GLOBALISM

Bush also stated in his address that:  “We cannot wish globalism away… And, we must continue “a wise and sustained global engagement” in order to provide for a secure future for our nation.  SERIOUSLY!  Your Father gave us the false concept of a “One World Government” that assumes a subservient America!  Trump views a strong America as the best way to provide for a secure America and the World. 

Bush style globalism is another way of promoting the progressive-left dream of weakening America and spreading its wealth to the rest of the world until everyone is equal.  Sound familiar?  Maybe, like the socialist/NeoCon world where everyone is equal and there is no longer a need for a strong America.  Obama shared this view in spades as does the entire Progressive-left, DC Elites, Democrats, and Republican elites and NeoCons.  

The result of the Clinton/Bush/Obama push for globalism is a vastly weakened US economy; a drastic elimination of our manufacturing base; a transfer of our sovereignty to the UN and to multi-party agreements; and a weakening of our moral and social fabric to where all hope was being dashed in the US by the time Obama left office.  If Clinton has been elected, this transfer of US wealth and power would have been completed.

Trump rightly believes that Globalism is the mechanism to weaken and destroy the United States as a world economic and military power.  He is absolutely right.  To restore America to its prior greatness and the reverse the “fundamental transformation of America” that had been shepherded by Clinton, Bush and Obama, Trump has:

  • Reversed over 800 industry and job killing regulations that added $9.00 per hour to every American work hour BEFORE THE WORKER EVEN BEGAN WORK AT THE FACTORY.  These regulations provided a business killing tax on businesses and forced their production outside of the US.  
  • Killed the Trans Pacific Partnership and other trade agreements that Bush and his ilk view as “fair trade” agreements.  These same agreements has transferred our industrial complex out of the US to our enemies and others at the expense of the American worker.  Bush’s idea of fair trade is any deal that benefits our trading “partners” and provides the us with a trade imbalance that benefits those we trade with.
  • Withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord as this agreement transferred actual US cash to other nations; imposed strict controls on US emissions; and allowed our competitors and political enemies to ignore environmental controls altogether.  This accord was just another mechanism to transfer US wealth to others and level the playing feel that Bush and others deemed good for the world.
  • Trump championed an “America First” mantra that is emotional in nature but builds national pride and instills hope into those who have been disenfranchised by Bush and his cohorts Clinton and Obama.  

Trump knows that Globalism is another way of saying “America Last”!

Accuses Trump of Being Anti-Immigration:

Bush also stated that America mustrecover our own identity,” by committing to “global engagement, free and international trade, and immigration.”   How global engagement, non reciprocal trade and immigration add to recovering, rather than diluting, our identity, Bush did not say!   He said further, “We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, and forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”  Nativism is defined as “the policy of protecting the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants” is in and of itself a validation of the Constitutional Rights of American Citizens over immigrants who would seek entry or enter illegally!  (We have already discussed globalism and “free trade” above so this section will focus on immigration.)

Bush and his elitists believe in OPEN BORDERS under the guise of “sharing our heritage” and tempering our “nativism” that he feels is detrimental to our future!  In reality, these statement are just a further expansion of weakening America by diluting our citizenry who know and live our heritage with others who do not share our heritage nor our vision of America.  Also, it is a way for the Elites to bring in cheap labor to bolster the profits of multi-nationals that keep the pretext of doing business in the US but hire non-US workers!

Once you have transferred a great deal of American wealth, manufacturing base, and jobs overseas, all that is left is to bring in outside labor to force the remaining American workers into welfare and out of the workforce altogether.  This was almost accomplished at the end of the Obama regime.  To complete the destruction of our heritage and our values, mass immigration from countries that do not share Western values will split apart the social fabric of this nation or any nation (see what is happening in Europe due to open borders) and leave it devoid of purpose or cohesion!  Once this is done, who will fight to save a nation that no longer exists!

Trump has attempted to reverse the use of immigration, legal and illegal, in the 9 months he has been in office.

  • Instigated travel bans until suitable vetting can be devised to screen out potential terrorists and those who would seek to harm this country if allowed entry.
  • Drastically reduced the number of refugees allowed into this country and is setting up in-country or neighboring country facilities to temporary accommodate refugees.
  • Securing our southern border to stop illegal immigration and drug and human trafficking.  Hiring additional agents to secure the border and obtaining funding from Congress to physically build a wall.
  • Adding a significant number of immigration deportation judges to handle the backlog from the Bush and Obama regimes.  Bush and Obama felt that if they could delay deportations, these people

    would eventually just blend in!

Bush Blames US BIGOTRY on Trump!

Bush stated in his address that:  “Bigotry seems emboldened, our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.  There are some signs that support for democracy itself has waned especially for the young.”  

Bush totally ignores the racism fostered by Obama pitting Blacks against law enforcement and his constant reminder of Black victimhood rather than making any attempts.  Further, Obama used Latino immigration as a wedge against citizens to create Latino victimhood at the hands of US Citizens.  Bush totally ignored all of these intentional race baiting tactics by Obama and now lays poor race relations and “bigotry” at the feet of Trump!

Since his inauguration, Trump has sought to improve the lives of poorer Black families with jobs and improved economic opportunities.  Blacks under Trump have seen unemployment drop by a full percent and Black labor participation rates have also improved by the same amount.   As Trump is able to create more jobs in America, he is transforming “Welfare to Work” programs to lift those left behind in our inner-cities out of poverty and into the mainstream.

Trump is also working to provide school choice to those in the inner-cities who are enslaved by a poor education and a lack of opportunity to improve their lot.  Trump has also directed HUD secretary Carson to create new housing and ownership programs for those stuck in projects and substandard living conditions.  Trump has also tasked the Justice Department with intervening in inner-cities to reduce crime and violence and provide its citizens with a safe environment.

I never heard a word from Bush, either one, pushing for school choice, creating safer environments, providing more jobs and opportunity, or improving housing conditions for minorities in rural areas or inner-cities.  I guess Bush was too busy making sure globalism was working for other nations and was invading countries who were not a direct threat to the US while allowing those who were to build nuclear weapons!

The Bush speech is just another attempt by the NeoCons, the Never-Trumpers, the Elites, and the Progressive-Left to destroy Trump before he is able to restore this nation to its position of economic and military dominance and makes the world a safer and more prosperous place for all.  If America does not lead, then who does?  The European Union?  Russia or China?  A Middle-Eastern Islamic Coalition?  Time to wake up and see the battle Trump is waging on our behalf…  

GW Bush needs to reassess his actions as President and his legacy of death and global financial and military instability.  While I am sure that he did the best he could, what he left behind was a nation in debt, a collapsing economy, two wars that had been badly managed, and a nation that had lost hope in its future and a view that government no longer cared for its people.  And I voted for him twice!  Before he picks up another microphone and bad-mouths someone else, maybe a little introspection and humility is in order.
