Democrats Resist #MAGA

md6

Is it any wonder that Democrats are imploding?  When a political party’s only message is “resist” one must ask.  Resist what?  Making America Great Again is the President’s objective.  Democrats in Congress articulate daily they intend to do whatever it takes to stop President Trump from accomplishing his goal.  If it is at the expense of the American People, so be it.

A civilized society requires civilized leaders of which are few and far between in the United States Congress.  Congress was not meant to run by consensus.  But, when Democrats refuse to do anything other than hysterical fear mongering instead of the jobs taxpayers are paying them to do that is what Republicans must do to get anything done.

Under the leadership of Whimper and Whine the main focus of the Democratic Party has been to vilify President Trump and the voters that support him.  Here is a clue.  If Democrats want the votes of those now supporting Republicans they must earn them.

Maybe if Democrats stopped complaining and actually sat down at the table like grownups it would help.  If they continue to derelict their duty Democrats have no right to complain about whatever the Republicans come up with.  At least the Republicans are attempting to make life better for this Nation.

When the head of the DNC cannot open his mouth without obscenities spilling out the Democrats have a problem.  When Democratic Congress Members call for the impeachment of a President because he is from another party it only makes them look foolish.  When Democratic leaders’ best defense for their bad behavior is “republicans were naughty first” it is childish.

Democrats have diminished the offices they hold with their total disregard for the people they serve.  They have set the bar so low for common decency that it is disgraceful.  If and when a Democrat can win an election they will reap what they are now sowing.

Most alarming is the toxic tone of Democrats in Congress.  No longer willing to debate the merits of an issue they resort to name calling, fear mongering, lies and innuendos.  Worse yet they diminish those who dare challenge them including their own constituents.

The Democrats direct anyone that will listen to stop President Trump, Republicans and anyone else that doesn’t agree with them at all costs.  Terms like “fight” and rhetoric filled with hate speech designed to make people believe their lives are being threatened have consequences.  The fact they know it isn’t true is unconscionable.  The resulting violence is of no concern to them.

A house divided cannot stand.  The same is true of a Nation.  Democrats can blame President Trump all they want.  But, in reality the President is nothing more than a scapegoat being used to justify their mean and hateful lack of civility.  Their unacceptable behavior started long before President Trump ever announced he was running for office.

It is time for those participating in this nonsense to be voted out of office.  That is what we do in a democracy.

The Sky IS Falling

md9

When President Donald J. Trump said the FAKE news media was  an “enemy of the people” he was right.  Instead of wearing it, those the shoe fit cried “evil”.  What else could they do?  The only other option was to do a little soul-searching.

Gone are the days of journalistic integrity.  Daily Press Briefings highlight the media’s tabloid mentality.  Like children they interrupt responses with “how come?”, “why not?”.  Reporters ask redundant questions when the answer is not the one they need to fit the story they have already written.

The coverage after the briefing is astounding.  One has to wonder what press briefing they refer to because the account is far from the reality.  Grasping at straws they regurgitate the democrats theme song.  “The Sky Is Falling” with a resounding chorus of  “Russia, Russia, Russia”.

One thing is for certain.  The White House Press Corps is far from professional.  Somewhere a long the line they have lost their way.  While the world passes them by they spend all their time attempting to take down the President of The United States of America to meet the needs of their political agenda.

Reduced to nothing more than the mouth piece of the Democratic Party, the media spins the narrative they have created.  Salacious headlines cry wolf.  But, the facts they present scream otherwise.  When all is said and done their stories turn out to be much ado about nothing yet again.

Melodramatic fear mongering has become a tool of their trade.  It is hard to take someone constantly in crisis seriously.  Yet that is what viewers are expected to do.  In the end all that is accomplished is needlessly frightening the vulnerable and being dismissed by many as not credible.

Meanwhile there are many things going on around us that are minimally covered or not at all.  Instead of telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth the media  reports what they want us to think.  They no longer provide a service to the public.  At this point in time the media is practicing yellow journalism without remorse.

Reporters appear shallow while lacking critical thinking skills.  Fixating on the assumption everything President Trump does is evil they ignore the facts that prove otherwise.

The coverage of the James Comey firing is a good example.  In the press briefing all but one in the press attacked the messengers and focused on what day would have been better to fire Comey.  Trump’s tweet saying Comey better tell the truth and hope there are no tapes of conversations before he leaks to the press as a result of Comey’s quote in the news was their smoking gun.

The majority of the media brain pool insisted that Comey being fired was an attempt by the President to stop Comey from investigating him.  If those pushing the melody of the moment actually believe it they are incompetent, if they don’t they are corrupt.  The tweet was a threat according to the democrats’ lynch mob.

To begin with Comey was not investigating President Trump.  The United States Congress House and Senate and the FBI are investigating Russian interference into our elections.  The FBI functioned just as well after Comey was fired under the direction of the acting director who by the way has strong ties to the democratic Party.  To imply otherwise is an insult to all those in the FBI who serve this country.

Alleging the tweet was a threat is absurd.  What exactly was the threat?  If James Comey lies about conversations with the President he should be aware there maybe recordings of those conversations.  So in other words if he lies he might be proven wrong.  It is the White House, James Comey was the Director of the FBI.  One would hope there is outstanding surveillance and of all people James Comey should know exactly where, when and what is in the White House.

The one press member that gave me hope asked relevant questions.  Does the President know who he intends to replace Comey with?  What is the expected time frame for replacing Comey?

With so many democrats and media members demanding James Comey’s head and then feigning outrage when they got it makes them appear disingenuous at best.  With anything and everything being recorded and put out there for the world to see it is impossible to hide the hypocrisy.

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.

DvR

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.
