Loony Left – If Only They Would

fl

There was a time in the United States when the words we pledge our allegiance with meant something.  Many of our citizens fought for our right to say them.  Many of those died so that we might live freely in a democracy.

Presidents come and Presidents go.  It is not the person filling the office but, the office itself that makes this country great.  However, an attack of a sitting President is a threat to our democracy.

Whether you love President Trump or hate him, is irrelevant.  Donald J. Trump is now and will forevermore be the 45th President of the United States of America.  Only time will tell whether or not he was a good one.  In the meantime we need to let the man do his job.

The daily salacious headlines crying wolf based on gossip and supported by anonymous sources do more harm than good for the United States.  We are a nation where people are innocent until proven guilty.  Yet our main stream media act as judge, jury and executioner.

Speculation on what may or may not be true is nothing more than that.  The idea that democrats lie and the media swears to it is absurd.  Are those on the left staying up at night developing the melody of the moment in their The Sky Is Falling song so narcissistic to believe it will be business as usual if their coup attempts were successful?

Democrats in Congress and the media are opening Pandora’s Box.  We are a nation of law and order based on the United States Constitution.  Those trying to undermine President Trump can only succeed by undermining the principles the United States of America was founded on.

The lack of respect, civility and common decency practiced daily by those trying to further their own self-serving agenda is disgraceful.  President Trump is sixty-eight years old.  He has been in the public eye for most of his adult life.  Any connection to Russia would have been discovered long ago.

If a group of malcontents can successfully take down a sitting President what chance do the rest of us have?  If the President can be slandered on a daily basis what chance do the rest of us have?  Guilty of something, the loony left has no idea what.  But, they will keep on looking.

The media have backed themselves into a corner.  The complete and total lack of facts to back up the drivel they spew based on anonymous sources have made what use to be a respected profession nothing more than a joke.  The airwaves are filled daily with hysterical fear mongers. The transparency of the propaganda makes the media look unhinged.

The media has painted a fictitious picture that cannot be supported with actual facts.  Their desperation more apparent daily, forces them to present more and more speculation.  The more speculation the press presents as fact the less we as a nation can rely on them.

If the Trump administration fails so do the American people in more ways than one.  Rational people outside Washington, DC are busy trying to put food on the table.  Everyone and their brother are investigating anyone and everything Trump.

A novel idea might be to wait for the results of actual investigations based on facts before drawing conclusions.  Unfortunately our main stream media has written the story and hope like hell the investigations will make them true.  However, if the investigations produce no crime the United States press will be reduced to a laughing-stock of the world.

What Goes Around Comes Around

flag2 (2)

We are a nation governed by The United States Constitution.  It is time we start playing by those rules again.  They have served us well.  Our forefathers knew what they were doing when they divided our government into three equal branches.  For our country to run smoothly the three branches need to do so as well.

sc

The Supreme Court is responsible for ensuring that disputes are resolved in accordance with the United States Constitution.  As a result of partisan politics one of those seats has remained empty for months.  Garland didn’t get a hearing thanks to Republicans.  So Democrats refuse to vote “yes” for Neil Gorsuch.  Two wrongs don’t make a right.

court1

The Supreme Court can run smoothly with only eight sitting justices.  The problem comes when the eight justices are equally divided.  When that happens the Supreme Court relinquish its duties to a lower court.  Instead of having nine well qualified justices decide a case that can affect us all.  We place our fate in the hands of one justice from a lower court.  Rouge self-indulgent justices suffering from delusions of grandeur are free to play politics from their bench.

trump3

 The Executive Branch, headed by the President approves legislation and commands our military.  The duties of a President are limited.  A President doesn’t make laws.  The President approves or doesn’t legislation passed by Congress.  A President must have approval from Congress to go to war.  President Trump is the least of our worries.

house2

The Legislative Branch known as Congress is divided into the House and Senate.  Their job is to take care of business for the American people.  Each state has two Senators to represent their home state.  The number of Representatives from each state is based on population.  Their job is to represent their constituents.

Partisan politics has taken over Congress.  Members have sold their souls to their political Parties.  The top priority is stacking the deck in Congress by filling the seats with those from their Party.  Their days are spent campaigning for the next election.  Pleasing political donors takes precedence over serving this country.

quag

The quagmire in Congress has progressively gotten worse over time and didn’t happen overnight.  Pointing all the fingers in the world won’t help.  There is plenty of blame to go around.  As time has gone by, members have been emboldened to push the envelope further and further.  They are in the process of pushing it too far.

sport

One Party makes a rule to benefit the Party, not the people.  When the other Party uses the same rule for their benefit the first Party cries foul.  Neither Party has the foresight to consider the long-term ramification of their actions.

genie

Democrats’ antics of undermining the President of the United States are setting a dangerous precedent.  Once the genie is let out of the bottle, there will be no getting it back in.  Congress members need to think long and hard before they do.

coup

Democrats unhappy they lost the Presidential election went so far as attempting a coup.  With Nancy Pelosi’s daughter as their minion they attempted to intimidate Electoral College members into overriding the American people.  Luckily it backfired.  Their candidate lost more votes than their intended target.  Imagine if they had succeeded?  Are they so naïve to think it would have been business as usual?

table

Instead of representing their constituents at the table they spend every waking moment fear mongering.  Then they complain the people are afraid.  What good does that do the American people?  Calls for the American people to protest and fight the President in hopes he fails to further their Party’s agenda are un-American.  Causing chaos in our streets is not in the best interest of the American people.

What goes around comes around.  The problem is when all you do is run around in circles you get nowhere.  That is exactly the direction Congress is going.
