Thank God For President Trump

DvR

Our United States Congress is far more interested in the success of their Party than those who entrusted them with the responsibility of governing this great Nation.  They have forgotten that they are far less important than the seats they fill.

With every vote down Party lines Democrats and Republican Congress members duke it out daily for the world to see.  They routinely jump in front of television cameras to advance their own self-serving agenda with hate speech directed at the “opposition”.

Congress members have no qualms about throwing each other under the bus if they think it will further their own careers.  All the while needlessly frightening the very people depending on them.

According to the Bible, Gospel of Mark 3:25 “If a house is divided against itself it cannot stand.”  and then in the Gospel of Matthew 12:25 “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand’;”.

Those Bible verses were the basis of Abraham Lincoln’s famous house divided speech.  If Jesus and Abraham Lincoln both said it, who am I to disagree?  Better yet, where do those in Congress get off not taking their advice?

With the example set in the Congress of the United States of America is it any wonder we have hate groups forming on the left and the right sides of the aisles?

Those in Congress are too busy pitting Democrats against Republicans to do their jobs.  The ironic thing is that they now vilify supporters of their opposition in hopes of what?  Do they honestly believe that will endear them enough to get the vote of the very people they insult?

Hearing a Congress member whining that the President has “excessive expectations” of Congress while they are on vacation again for a month is mind-boggling.  With Donald J. Trump as their excuse Democrats and Republicans alike in Congress derelict their duty daily.

Embarrassed to be a Democrat I voted not for the candidate that called half this country deplorable phobics of every imaginable kind.  However, if he runs in 2020 I will be voting for Donald J. Trump.  Because with all those playing politics in Congress at the expense of this Nation the 45th President of the United States of America is not taking sides.

Love him or hate him, President Trump gets up everyday and goes to work for the American people of all color, creed, religion or political party.  He and his family are making great personal and financial sacrifices for President Trump to do so.  Anyone telling you otherwise is lying.

President Trump does not represent the Democratic or Republican Parties.  He represents all Americans.  There is no doubt in my mind that he will in fact Make America Great Again.

Fake News – How Low Can You Go?

peace

With hate in their hearts fake news outlets and politicians used a tragic event to fan the flames of violence.  With complete and total disregard of the facts,  in pursuit of furthering their own self-serving agenda they pounced on an opportunity to divide this country.

Thank you very much. As you know, this was a small press conference, but a very important one. And it was scheduled to talk about the great things that we’re doing with the secretary on the veterans administration. And we will talk about that very much so in a little while. But I thought I should put out a comment as to what’s going on in Charlottesville. So, again, I want to thank everybody for being here, in particular I want to thank our incredible veterans. And thank you, fellas. Let me shake your hand.

They’re great people. Great people. But we’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, this has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.

I just got off the phone with the governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and we agree that the hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection– really, I say this so strongly, true affection for each other. Our country is doing very well in so many ways. We have record — just absolute record employment. We have unemployment the lowest it’s been in almost 17 years. We have companies pouring into our country, Foxconn and car companies and so many others. They’re coming back to our country. We’re renegotiating trade deals to make them great for our country and great for the American worker.

We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me it’s very, very sad. I want to salute the great work of the state and local police in Virginia. Incredible people. Law enforcement, incredible people. And also the National Guard. They’ve really been working smart and working hard. They’ve been doing a terrific job. Federal authorities are also providing tremendous support to the governor. He thanked me for that. And we are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able. Above all else, we must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country. We love our god.

We love our flag. We’re proud of our country. We’re proud of who we are, so we want to get the situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it. And we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen. My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together. So important. We have to respect each other. Ideally, we have to love each other.

You be the judge.  But the transcript of President Trump’s comments regarding Charlottesville, Virginia as events were unfolding seemed to be the only voice of reason, calling for calm and the restoration of law and order.

It Takes Two

mlk

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

It seems clear that Dr. King was right.  What happened in Charlottesville, Virginia today was an egregious attack on our civilized society.  One hateful group came to fight another hateful group.  Neither group had any intention of peacefully protesting.  Both groups went to cause trouble.

Those on the left blame the right and those on the right blame the left.  To blame only one of the groups excuses the bad behavior of the other.  Elected officials and those in the main stream media choosing to do so are not doing their jobs.  They are using a tragic event to divide this Nation.

President Trump is right.  “No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans First.”  So when those entrusted to run this Nation go to Washington, DC to play politics it is at the peril of the United States of America.  Congress members on the far left and right incite discontent.

The main stream media ignore the truth to sway the public to their point of view.  Portraying those they disagree with as evil, they elevate those they agree with as saints.  All the while frightening those depending on them for the truth that never comes.

It is time for rational, reasonable people to take a deep breath.  Instead of condemning those we don’t agree with, maybe we should listen.  Because nothing is as simple as it seems.  There are two sides to every disagreement.  The majority of the time, both sides make valid points.

It is time for this Nation to agree to disagree and peacefully coexist.  There is no room for hatred in our hearts.

There Is Plenty Of Blame To Go Around

ko

It seems that there is plenty of blame to go around.  North Korea has been a thorn in the world’s side for decades.  After eighty years of diplomacy we find ourselves at a point in time when North Korea has the capability to carry out threats of mass destruction.  All the finger-pointing in the world will not change that.

There is no good solution to the problem of North Korea.  The United States has the ability to wipe North Korea off the face of the earth.  However, not before North Korea could kill millions of innocent people.

Diplomacy would be the best option.  Considering that eighty years of diplomacy brought us to where we are today, it is not very probable that it would work.  You can not reason with a crazy person.  The leader of North Korea has no intentions of negotiating any resolution that does not include sending a nuclear missile to the United States of America.

Sanctions are our best option.  We must cut off the money funding the nuclear weapons program in North Korea.  In order for that goal to be accomplished China must abide by the UN Sanctions they agreed to.

The United States is not alone.  North Korea is a threat to many other countries that have far more to lose than the United States.  The fifteen countries agreeing to the sanctions against North Korea must enforce them.

China is the best solution.  There is no doubt that they could stop North Korea in its tracks if they so choose.  It is time for China to step up to the plate and stop enabling their naughty stepchild.  If China chooses not to.  Then the US and others must consider sanctions against those in China aiding North Korea.  Unlike the leader of North Korea, those in China any sanctions would affect are capable of rational thought.

What About Me? Sedition?

press

The days of journalistic integrity are long gone.  What was once considered a respected profession today’s “journalists” have turned to ruin.  The main stream media come up with stories they hope will come true and present them as facts.

It use to be that the press presented the facts and allowed their audience to draw their own conclusions.  We as a nation could count on them to inform us of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  After watching any event in its entirety and then watching the coverage of the very same event is an eye opener.  It is clear that the facts presented are misleading if not down right false.  The attempt to manipulate the audience is transparent.

The nightly news anchors of yesteryear held themselves to the highest of standards.  Today’s nightly news anchors hold themselves in their highest regard.  Instead of reporting news, far too often they are the news.

When it was announced that leakers of classified information would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law the press only had one question.  “What about us?”  Who cares that there are those in our government committing treason?

When Steve Bannon referred to the press as an “enemy of the people” they all cried foul.  What true journalists would have done was ask themselves why Bannon called them that in the first place.  Could it be because they are not being honest with those that rely on them for the truth?

A free press is important in a free society.  So, when the main stream media becomes to busy trying to stir up trouble that they neglect the facts they do more harm than good.  At this point in time the press can not be relied on.

The main stream media’s agenda is clear.  If it doesn’t support the “Trump Evil” rhetoric they try to force down our throats daily, they don’t report it.  It seems odd that the only thing they report on is President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile the world turns and we the people are left uninformed.

It is bad enough that the main stream media is so mean and hateful towards President Trump.  But, President Trump is a big boy.  He did not get where he is today by being as “thin-skinned”, “psychotic”, “a thug” etc. that the press reports.  At the end of the day, Donald J. Trump is now and will forevermore be the 45th President of the United States of America.

Far worse is what the main stream media refuses to cover.  Instead of asking the questions that need to be asked they have become complicit in cover ups.  There are definitely a few rocks that need to be turned over regarding many things having nothing to do with the President.  Where is Clark Kent when we need him?

To all those narcissistic bullies hiding behind their press passes.  Here is a news flash.  There are limits to the rights afforded to the “free press”.  Everyone is allowed to print whatever they want without government restrictions.  However, the press is subject to laws of libel, obscenity, SEDITION, etc.

With “anonymous sources” used to support stories later in need of retraction regularly one might ask if the main stream media isn’t breaking libel laws.  Is rude, obnoxious behavior obscene?  Now for the big one.  Was it a confession when the reporter asked what about the press?

Sedition is defined as the incitement of decent or rebellion against government.  If the daily assaults on the President of the United States of America are not meant to take down a sitting President and our democracy as we know it, I don’t know what is.  Maybe it’s time for many in the main stream media to lawyer up.

Those Who Laugh Last, Laugh Loudest!

10385606_764621603581431_6255072954476376100_n (2)

Consider that the United States of America is a Nation of laws governed by The United States Constitution.  If Federal Agencies are allowed to be weaponized for political gain or any other reason our democracy is in peril.

If the President of The United States of America can be railroaded what chance do the rest of us have?  Special counsels, grand juries, Congressional investigations and the likes now in place are meant to do just that.  There is a clear desire to convict President Trump & anyone that voted for him.  The only smoking gun is the desire of those behind the attempts to take down a sitting President or a coup.

With false charges and no evidence the hasty appointment of a special counsel smells pretty fishy.  To add insult to injury this blatant abuse of power is at the expense of the American taxpayers.

Although it might appear that the fix is in, fear not.  Let them investigate.  While they spend their time chasing their tails the truth will set us free.  In the end we are a Nation of laws.  The American people will not stand for anything less than the truth.

Those trying to destroy the President along with the United States of America are going to have a rude awakening.  There will be convictions and lots of them.  However it will not be a Trump convicted.  I can’t help but think of the old saying.  Those who laugh last, laugh loudest.

Obamacare Double Standards

obama1

According to our trusted lawmakers in Washington DC Obamacare is good enough for the American people.  But, it is certainly not good enough for them.  United States Congress Members were to be insured through Obamacare per laws governing Obamacare.

Once those in Congress actually read what they had voted for it didn’t take long.  Clearly Obamacare was not a program they wished to entrust with the health and well-being of their families.  Hocus pocus, with the help of President Obama Federal funding magically appeared to pay for better health insurance for Congress members and their loved ones.

 President Trump tweeted  “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”  Quite frankly it is about time for United States Congress Members to be governed by the same rules and regulations as the rest of us.

Time for Democrats and Republicans alike to repeal and replace Obamacare.  How hard can it be?  For all intents and purposes, Obamacare has repealed itself.  All that is needed now is for Congress to vote “yes” to make it official.  The replace part of the equation will then be a piece of cake.  Provide the American people with the same insurance they provide for themselves at our expense.
